MILWAUKEE — Since the opening of Fiserv Forum on Aug. 26, basketball in Milwaukee has been on a whole new level.

Having the league's second-best offense (117.5 points per game), best rebounding percentage, a mastermind coach in Mike Budenholzer and MVP candidate Giannis Antetokounmpo, the Milwaukee Bucks were missing only one thing.

Made official today, the organization went out and got that one thing: championship experience.

Pau Gasol, a 7-footer, will bring what no other current player has on the 16-man roster: June playing time in the NBA.

With that, the two-time NBA champion has only one goal in mind.

The Bucks now have seven players on their roster standing at 6-10 or taller.

With the NBA's best record (48-15) and a playoff berth already in their back pocket, the Bucks might be on their way to doing something special at Fiserv Forum.
