Teammate Kevin Love, who has grown close with Osman and often competes against him in post-practice shooting contests, has tried to drive home the same point. “I’ve been on him about just playing free. When he plays free and plays with joy, he’s so much better,” Love said following Saturday’s win over the Chicago Bulls in which Osman boasted the best plus-minus (41) of any player. “He’s playing out in transition. He’s slashing to the cup. He hits tough shots. He hits open shots. When he’s playing free and having joy, it’s fun to watch. He’s like a whole different person and whole different player. I don’t know if it’s because he got married this summer and wanted to come out right away and play that well off the bat, but he’s been great.”

Lauren Holiday was looking at Kohler bathroom fixtures for her own home renovation project, when she asked the sales representative a question: “You know what would be really cool? If we partnered and we did women’s shelters.” Kohler responded immediately, Holiday reached out to Sojourner Family Peace Center, the Milwaukee Bucks Foundation pitched in and the combined efforts led to nearly $300,000 to help repair and renovate three local shelters, including one at 619 W. Walnut St., just blocks from Fiserv Forum.
The Holidays, the Bucks Foundation and Kohler Co. also provided upgraded bathrooms in two other local domestic violence and homeless shelters, the Hope House in Milwaukee and The Women’s Center in Waukesha.
