With the reigning MVP on the team and Finals-level expectations, Bucks fans are eagerly awaiting the upcoming season. But in case that's not enough, though, here's something else to get you excited: free stuff.
The Bucks today announced its lineup of giveaway items for the 2019-20 season, from the very cool – a Giannis Antetokounmpo MVP bobblehead, a hat designed by Bucks great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar – to the very curious, like a mean-mugging Giannis gnome and a pair of ear buds decorated with little cartoon Mike Budenholzers. No, I did not make either of those up.
The list also includes another trio of special guest-designed custom collector caps, this year designed by a yet-unnamed current Bucks player, a local college student and Bucks great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.
When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
