(3) Giannis Antetokounmpo [95%] defeated (30) Malcolm Brogdon [5%]

They’re both much loved current Bucks, but Brogdon never really had a chance of upsetting the current apple of Milwaukee’s eye. Antetokounmpo started his tournament off with the kind of comprehensive victory that could simply prove to be a sign of things to come. On the opposite side of the draw to Kareem, Antetokounmpo is all set up for a deep run in the days ahead.

(19) Andrew Bogut [65%] defeated (14) Jack Sikma [35%]

Another upset, and yet another which sees a more recent player come to the fore. Funnily enough, Bogut shares first overall pick status with Baker, who had a similar upset. Sikma is underrated in many respects, so perhaps this is a fitting result for one of many Bucks still waiting on his call from the Hall of Fame.

(6) Oscar Robertson [98%] defeated (27) Greg Smith [2%]

The most dominant win of the first round belonged to the Big O, who dispatched of his 1971 championship winning teammate in the most routine fashion. Oscar should make for something of a wildcard in the later rounds, as although his play with the Bucks was nowhere near the pinnacles of his early career, he was key to delivering the ultimate success to the Cream City.

(23) Sam Cassell [60%] defeated (10) Paul Pressey [40%]

The biggest upset of the bunch, as once again, the 2001 factor kicked in to take a member of the Big Three into the second round. It’s probably fair to say the fans’ love for that team comfortably outweighs their achievements, but that’s no knock on Sam I Am who may have to break out an infamous dance if he works his way through another round.
