Episode 17: The 1973-74 Milwaukee Bucks
While the current Milwaukee Bucks are attempting to Own the Future, the Milwaukee Bucks of the early 1970's owned the past. Led by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (yes, he played for the Milwaukee Bucks!) and Oscar "Big O" Robertson the Milwaukee Bucks of the early 70's were a dominate team that culminated with the 1970-71 NBA Championship. The 1973-74 Milwaukee Bucks saw the same core from the 1970-71 championship team return to face the Boston Celtics in the NBA Finals. In what would be a classic 7 game series, the Boston Celtics outlasted the Milwaukee Bucks for the NBA Championship, which would ultimately lead to the unraveling of the Bucks core and rebuilding, but did it have to? What if the Milwaukee Bucks won that Championship? Would Oscar Robertson still have retired? Would Kareem still have asked to be traded? Would the Milwaukee Bucks of the 70's be talked about in the same breath as the Celtics of the 60's or the Lakers of the 80's? And most importantly, would you be listening to this podcast? Find out all this and more as Rodrigo makes a deep inner discover about his feeling about Atlanta, and Brian does his best Charles Branson...um, Bronson imitation. So, come check out Episode 17, pally!
