Milwaukee Bucks Trivia: Game 7

The Year-In-Review, and a Call for Feedback

Hello again! Apologies for throwing a wrench in the regular rhythm due to a hiking trip with the fam. Relatedly, the Chiracahua National Monument is unreal.

In trivialand, we have made it to Game 7! (Thanks to Kevin Durant’s shoe size - see Question #5 - we will hopefully progress to the next round.)

Today, I want to give thanks to the year that was. The joy of Giannis’ supermax carried into the new year and culminated cathartically in a NBA championship. The current season has the Bucks sitting pretty with the same seed as last. While both seasons have offered stumbles along the way, it is worth taking a(nother) moment to be thankful for our team of upstanding guys that just so happen to play basketball quite well. (Not to mention the relatively stable organization that supports their success.) To that end, today’s questions will cover the year as a whole rather than the last three weeks of action.

I also want to ask for your feedback as this column prepares for the new year. As I tell my students, I am interested in quality feedback - regardless of whether it is positive or negative.

First and foremost, should the column continue? Unlike other entities that don’t consider shutting down as a viable alternative for their questionable product (cough cough Instagram cough), I have no vested interest in keeping this column going beyond my own (and possibly your) entertainment.

If so, I would be curious about ways to improve it. One thought would be to keep track of scores and award stupendous prizes to those among us with the most knowledge and luck. If not, any suggestions of other whimsical columns would be appreciated. Human interest, Guess That Player, you name it - as long as it doesn’t require me to distinguish different types of zone defenses (which I most certainly cannot).

Without further ado, good luck on today’s trivia! The answers, as always, are in the comments below.

Question #1
