More Bango for the Bucks
In B-I-N-G-O, you need five numbers to win. For the Bucks (and their mascot, Bango) all they needed was four numbers (5-7-10-14) to win the NBA 2005 Draft Lottery. If they don't trade the pick, it will be the fourth time in franchise history that the Bucks have had the No. 1 overall pick (Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, 1969; Kent Benson, 1977; and Glenn Robinson in 1994).
