MILWAUKEE -- Want to help Giannis and the rest of the Milwaukee Bucks win the team's first NBA Championship since 1971? Stay inside.

That's the message from team Senior Vice President Alex Lasry, who appeared on TMJ4 News Today Thursday morning to discuss the Bucks, the Democratic National Convention, and other issues.

"If people want the Bucks to get back on the court, and want us to win the NBA Championship, stay inside," Lasry said.

"Listen to the doctors, practice social distancing and physical distancing, because the more we stay inside and the more we listen to the experts, the faster we'll be able to get back outside."

When the NBA ground to a halt on the fateful evening of March 11, the Bucks had the NBA's best record (53-12) and a 6.5-game lead on the Toronto Raptors for the top spot in the Eastern Conference.

The Association's season usually runs through June. The latest major domino to fall in a now very long line of sports cancellations came on Wednesday, when the All England Club announced Wimbledon would not be held this year. The event was scheduled to run June 29 to July 12.
