Bucks Will Have One of the Best Homecourt Advantages in Eastern Conference
Milwaukee Bucks announced yesterday that they will be expanding to 50% capacity for the playoffs. This means that Milwaukee will have 9,000 fans at Fiserv Forum. In the last few weeks, Milwaukee has had 3,300. That is quite the jump for the Bucks. It should pay off in the Eastern Conference playoffs. They’re going to be one of two teams that will have 50% capacity as of today. Now, could we see other cities such as New York City, Miami, Atlanta increase their capacity before the playoffs? It is possible. We’re still 1o days aways. You have to think there is some politicking going on.
Current fan capacity for Eastern Conference teams heading into the playoffs…
1. 76ers- 50%
2. BKN- 30%
3. MKE- 50%
4. NYK- 30%
5. ATL- 45%
6. MIA- 15%
7. BOS- 12%
8. CHA- 25%
9. IND- 25%
10. WAS- 10%#Bucks trying to get homecourt advantage!

This makes the San Antonio Spurs’ loss hurt even more honestly. Just throw the salt in the fucking wound. Game seven at home will matter with these many fans. That’s a good group. And you will not have it be so corporate. It felt like the last few weeks that everyone golf clapped in there versus some of the rowdy crowds we saw at the Fiserv before the pandemic hit. And if that’s because the Fiserv officials are telling people to sit down, they should get off their fucking high horse. Let these fans cheer their guys on.
