The Milwaukee Bucks are getting just the right amount of spicy.
In addition to featuring Giannis Antetokoumpo—also known as the genetic offspring of Kevin Durant and LeBron James retrieved from the future—and Jabari Parker leading a fun, yound, and short-handed squad (the team is without Khris Middleton, their third-best player, for possibly the entire season) to a good-for-the-East 11-9 record, they've quietly got one of the most fun arena environments and fan bases around.
And thanks to their plucky disposition, their use of spite has been delightful.
Earlier this year, their Jumbotron trolled Golden State Warriors fans in attendance when they hosted the defending Western Conference champs.

And on Wednesday night, a group of fans—probably the same guys that handed out shirts that read "24-1" when they became the first team to beat the 73-win Warriors last season—organized a very specific and cold chant to taunt Portland Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard: "SoundCloud rapper!"

In addition to his career as a two-time All-Star, Lillard raps under the name Dame D.O.L.L.A., a persona he promotes on social media and by uploading tracks to SoundCloud. His debut album, The Letter O, peaked at No. 119 on the Billboard 200.
Behind a triple-double from Antetokounmpo and 27 points from Parker, the Bucks beat Portland 115-107.
