It was 2001.
The Bucks were in a hard-fought confrontation with the Philadelphia 76ers. Entering Game 5 the teams were tied at 2 games apiece. Game 5 was in Philly and it was down to the wire. Had the outcome been different the Bucks by winning Game 6 would have made it to the NBA Finals.
Oh so close. The Big Dog came ever so close.
The Bucks would win Game 6 at home but lose, and it wasn’t close, in Game 7 at Philly.
Let’s change history, shall we?
