Bucking for Lew

You may never have heard of the Milwaukee Bucks, but they are a basketball team in the Eastern Division of the NBA. In fact, they are the worst basketball team in the NBA--with the exception of the Phoenix Suns in the Western Division.

Lew Alcindor, you may have heard of. He is a college basketball player from UCLA and coincidentally, he is 7-1 and was the most valuable player in the NCAA playoffs for three straight years.

Last week, the Bucks flipped a coin with the Suns to see who would pick first in the NBA draft and for the first time since the Braves left, Milwaukee sports fans smiled. From Pewaukee to Wauwatosa, everyone in Milwaukee knows that the Bucks have first shot at the big Lew in the draft, and now you know too.
