Alex Boeder: Bucks Trivia

1980s Birthdays

If the Bucks go on a 145-game losing streak starting on Opening Night, they will still have a winning record (not to be read as a recommendation).

These are the things you notice when leafing through the new Bucks Media Guide.

And if you were born in the 1980s like me, you did not live through all the best times in franchise history, but the team probably didn’t lose on the day you were born (a 125-95 win against Dr. J for me).

So here we are. Multiple choice. Click your guesses and compare to the correct answers below. Say your score out of 20 in the comments, please. Next time these will be more difficult.
