In terms of the podcast that starts off with this week’s episode where we reset the clock and travel all the way back to the late 60s/early 70s, easily the most important period in the history of the Bucks.
We discuss how the Bucks came to be in Milwaukee in 1968 and perhaps most interestingly of all the major role played by Vince Lombardi and the Green Bay Packers.
From there we moved on to the nickname itself. We know them today as the Bucks, but what about the other options that were all in play at that time? How does Bucks actually stand up objectively as an NBA team name?
Rarely spoken about in the present day, but as the men who made this all possible, we also shone a light on the fascinating ownership duo of Wesley Pavalon and Marvin Fishman.
As usual, our mailbag wrapped things up with questions on Milwaukee’s near-miss on Julius Erving, the Knicks’ low-ball Kareem offer, greatest Bucks uniforms and ideal modern day backcourt partners for Oscar Robertson.
Joining me for all of this is regular podcast guest and contributor at the site, Jordan Treske and for one week only, site expert Ti Windisch!
