Milwaukee is an hour’s drive from Kenosha, where prosecutors deemed the actions of local police in the Blake incident an appropriate use of force. “It’s in our backyard,” said Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer. Milwaukee players, who launched the brief wildcat strike in the bubble after the Blake shooting, decided something needed to be done. They could kneel for the anthem, though networks might not show it. According to Brook Lopez, Pat Connaughton suggested something more visible: kneeling after tip-off for seven seconds—one for every bullet Blake was shot with. “As a team, we’re going to use our platform the right way,” said Giannis Antetokounmpo. “My kid is going to grow up here in America, and my kid is Black. I cannot imagine my kid going through what I see on TV. While I’m living and while I’m breathing, if I can do something about it to even change it 2%, 5%, for the better, I’m going to do it.”
Eric Woodyard: Torrey Craig will play tonight for Milwaukee. Coach Mike Budenholzer says there’s no injuries. Budenholzer said guys are ready to ‘hoop’ with a lot of anticipation. Bucks starters: Jrue Holiday, Donte DiVincenzo, Khris Middleton, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Brook Lopez.
Storyline: Torrey Craig Injury
Milwaukee also pursued players such as Indiana Pacers two-time All-Star Victor Oladipo and Brooklyn Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie during the offseason, sources said. Around Giannis Antetokounmpo, the Bucks have built a supporting cast of Holiday, All-Star Khris Middleton and All-NBA defensive center Brook Lopez. Either way, given their history battling for MVPs, Harden and Antetokounmpo would be a dreamy duo.
