The Milwaukee Bucks are dead last in the Eastern Conference with a record of 2-11 right now. Only the 2-14 Utah Jazz are worse in the NBA. That’s not news. The Milwaukee Bucks have been really bad at basketball for a really long time. What is news is what a group of Milwaukee Bucks fans decided to do about how terrible the team is.
A fan group called “Save Our Bucks” have decided put up a billboard in downtown Milwaukee with the words “Winning Takes Balls.” Because of course, the save the Milwaukee Bucks movement requires a low-brow pun relating to testicles. Otherwise it won’t work. The Milwaukee Bucks fan billboard, which you can see below, is a call to action to tank the season, in the hopes of acquiring as many ping pong balls as possible for the 2014 NBA Draft.
The draft figures to be one of the richest classes in recent memory.
