The latest Milwaukee Bucks Daily is here as we learn that Marques Johnson, Sidney Moncrief and Jack Sikma are among the 13 finalists for this year’s Naismith Hall of Fame class.

In today’s edition of Milwaukee Bucks Daily, a trio of Bucks greats are named finalists for this year’s Naismith Hall of Fame class, we learn more about the bond between superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton, and much more.

With all three sporting careers worthy of Hall of Fame consideration, at least Johnson, Moncrief and Sikma have their respective feet in the door to garner that elusive honor. We’ll have to wait until the weekend of this year’s NCAA Final Four to see if any of them will hear their name called among those booking their ticket to Springfield this fall.
