That beer mug logo looks worth recreating!

Found a game ticket on eBay with logo but am unable to post it right now.

For me, Robert Indiana's art, the MECCA basketball court would've been perfect for that winter day in '77:

So... what we've learned from this thread is anything even remotely interesting about the Bucks happened at least two or three decades ago.

Well, the Bucks did make the conference finals in 2001 (?), so there's that. Of course, we also know what happened the following season, so...

(As an aside, I just looked up the deer's current record. 10-45...ouch.)

Well, Ray Allen was kinda interesting, wasn't he?

I meant visually/branding-wise (this is a sports design forum, after all)... but I do have a soft spot for the big purple deer.

Still, even that was quite awhile ago (and I had one of those jerseys in high school... damn I'm old).

Here's a poster from '77 of the MECCA floor with "MILWAUKEE" in Robert Indiana letters. I love the shaded letters and his numbers:

Indeed, he was! And now the new 34, Giannis Antetokounmpo!

Giannis! I actually bought his player shirt when I went up to Milwaukee earlier this month.

The Bucks, in my basketball watching years (last 15-20 years) have always had a mediocre, playoff bubble team that just manages to get by, but never takes that next step.

Late 90s- early 2000s they got George Karl and the Big 3. Reached the Conference Finals once but that was the climax.

Then they did the Gary Payton thing; Michael Redd and Andrew Bogut came along; Brandon Jennings came along. Nothing, nothing and nothing.

Now after playing in years of mediocrity, they've nose-dived to the bottom.

So true, from the head-scratcher trades to the people in charges' years of refusal to comprehend and concede to a true rebuild has caused the Bucks to bottom out.

Even when they had virtually secured a playoff spot last year, they made that ridiculous trade with the Magic for J.J. Redick to boost their roster and gave away a promising young(still only 21 years old) Tobias Harris.

What's funny is they're now accidentally tanking for ping pong balls due to their incompetence, even though their plan all along was to squeak into the playoffs.

They're indeed lovely. Even though the very first thought that came to mind when I saw these colors was Wimbledon. Game worn '95-96 Glenn Robinson and '96-97 Ray Allen's rookie shorts:

If they had done that all along, green with purple trim, the colors might have endured. It as shunting green off to the side that had to end.

Just a thought, but it seems that CCSLC has enough Milwaukee fans on here that we could try to use that to get the Bucks attention. Most of us seem to want the Irish Rainbow. Is there a way we can start a Bring Back the Rainbow group? Do those kinds of fan groups even work? I think the Padres fanbase tried to bring back the brown, and it failed. Anyone have any info on that?
