The Bucks Used A Ticket Promotion To Low-Key Trash The Bulls’ Untalented Roster

The Milwaukee Bucks and Chicago Bulls have never liked each other, dating their rivalry back to the ’70s, when Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Oscar Robertson did battle with the likes of Norm Van Lier and Jerry Sloan.

In the present day, they’re still going after each other, but not just on the court. They’re throwing serious shade on the internet.

A five-game ticket package available on the Bucks website allows prospective purchasers to choose five games from a stable of options. Each features the opponent’s logo and the most recognizable player on said team.

Some player choices are funny—the Los Angeles Lakers game currently features the worst shooter in the NBA—but the “player” pictured next to a December 15 home game against the Bulls is downright cruel.

It’s Benny the Bull, Chicago’s mascot.

Cold. Blooded.

The Bulls have been truly terrible this year. Here are just some stats in which they’re dead last or second to last in the NBA: points, field goals, field goal attempts, steals, field goal percentage, turnovers against, blocks, assists, free throws, free-throw attempts.

But come on, Bucks, rookie Lauri Markkanen has actually been decent! Show “the Finnisher” some love!
