Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 26 points against the Memphis Grizzlies and took over the third spot at the Milwaukee Bucks All-Time points list. He passed Sidney Moncrief, who stopped at 11,594 points, for the achievement.
NBA start and former Razorback Sidney Moncrief spent the day with seventh and eighth graders from Bentonville schools talking about diversity and inclusion. The students were chosen by teachers to participate in the Game Changer Diversity Summit.
Moncrief told WPB that Nelson and Lanier would be his presenters into the Hall. Nelson coached the Bucks from 1976-1987 and was responsible for the Bucks selecting Moncrief with the fifth overall pick in the 1979 draft. “Nellie was an innovated coach and, as a player, you appreciated that, at least I did,’’ Moncrief said of Nelson, the NBA’s all-time winningest coach with 1,335 victories who was inducted into the Hall in 2012. “As a coach, he’d find ways for you to have an advantage over your opponent. “I appreciated the way he played me and helped me to become a better player by the way he ran his offense with different matchups. He did that very well, not only for me but other players as well.’’
