Milwaukee Bucks Trivia: Inaugural Edition

Testing, Testing, Bucks in 6...

Hello and welcome to a new (potentially recurring?) segment of Milwaukee Bucks Trivia!

Before we begin, I would like to clarify some things based on the discourse surrounding this week’s introduction post. First, I am indeed a dude, despite a lifetime of being addressed in spam emails as Mrs. Ross (fine) or being called Ross (not fine). And second, I thought I would specify that I actually learned to read via the print editions of the acclaimed Journal Sentinel. I read the occasional Bucks article interspersed amidst incessant ads that I didn’t understand while eating Crispix and Frosted Flakes in the wee hours of the morn.

Now, down to business. I have always possessed a trivia streak, which emerged in elementary and middle school in Geography and Spelling Bees and continued in college at local breweries. It therefore came to mind as I considered ways that I could contribute here at Brew Hoop. So I present below the inaugural edition of Bucks Trivia.

Let me lay out some ground rules. The first and most important rule is that I am always right, although you are welcome to grovel in the comment section if you believe that not to be the case. The second and also most important rule is that you should use your mind and not your phone. People have always offloaded knowledge to their environments, from clay tablets to tablet tablets. The anytime-anywhere accessibility of mobile media means that you can likely find the answers to all of these questions in the swipe of a finger (and I will share them in the comments section below). That is not the point, though. The point is whether you - your corporeal self, sans digital extensions - can figure out how much the Milwaukee Bucks’ organization decided Dan Gadzuric’s four-block and eight-point performances were worth. Also: there will be a somewhat pronounced recency bias.

Without further ado, please enjoy puzzling through the following questions. I am new to the bells and whistles of writing blog posts and am a relatively larval Trivia host, so any comments on either form or content would be much appreciated.

Good luck!
