*Must be able to pick up the shirt in Milwaukee*
Sometimes you get an idea and the timing isn’t perfect.
But you pull the trigger anyway.
With that said, As Goes Wisconsin made some merch with quotes from Giannis, Middleton, and Tucker and we are selling them until July 4th.
And since we are always pushing the civic engagement angle even when cheering for our favorite teams, 50% of profits will go to BLOC to support them doing their excellent year around political organizing in Milwaukee.
We may be jinxing ourselves by releasing these after Giannis’ injury & being tied up with the Hawks, but we still have hope and are repeating that old faithful cheer: “I believe that we will win.”
#34 – Giannis
We searched the depths of the internet to try to figure out when and where Giannis actually said this, to no avail. But it’s a quote attributed to him on basically every single quote site we could find so we have to believe that it’s true, right? Regardless, we are so relieved to know that Giannis truly is a Greek Freak and has no structural damage to his knee so he can keep playing fearlessly whenever he gets back on the court.
#22 – Khris Middleton
We are still in the playoffs because of Khris Middleton. Full stop. And now with Giannis out indefinitely, Middleton will have to step into the role of leading this team to the finals. While there are now tons of editorials being printed in about how underrated he is, Middleton already knew that back in 2018. In a Q&A with Sports Illustrated, Middleton was asked if he felt like was one of the more underrated players in his career, and we can’t agree more with his answer. If you’re feeling unbothered, go buy yourself one of these shirts.
#9 – Bobby Portis
Bobby Portis has become a fan favorite since joining the Bucks this year. Besides “Bucks in 6”, the other chant you hear almost as often is: “BOB-BY! BOB-BY! BOB-BY!” And after game 5 against the Hawks, he became a Milwaukee favorite when he said this, “They were telling us about the city, how tough it is to live here and things like that. The city goes through a lot. When they see someone who works hard and gives his all… it’s a blue-collar city and I’m a blue-collar player. When I’m making shots, whether they’re going in or not, I still give my all to the team, give 100% for the name on the front of the jersey. They love players like that and it’s just fun to go out and play this game with home-court advantage and get them involved. Giannis went down and we had to step up. I didn’t play the last couple of games. I kept working and knew my time was going to come. If you do things the right way, things always come around.”
#17 – PJ Tucker
We had a lot of great new guys join the roster this season. And while Jrue Holiday continues to have his actions speak louder than his words on and off the court, PJ Tucker has been one of the most entertaining new guys on the lineup. Whether it’s him playing his heart out, trash-talking with Kevin Durant’s mom, or seeing what fashion-forward outfit he is wearing before the game. So, when he talked about guarding Durant in the last series and said, “We dream about this our whole lives. You dream about being in the playoffs and guarding the best player in the world. Like, I’ll die out there. I’m living my dream” we knew we had to put it on a shirt.
