The latest Milwaukee Bucks Daily is here as we consider the reasons why a growing rivalry with the Philadelphia 76ers should continue to develop.

In this latest edition of the Milwaukee Bucks Daily, we look at how the Bucks and Sixers will enter the season with an ever growing rivalry, and much more.

Although the Bucks are certainly a couple of steps ahead of the 76ers in their development, it will be fascinating to see how both teams fare in the coming season, and if the various events of recent months help to stoke the flames of a rivalry with Philadelphia.
