The incredible thing about Larry Drew

14 Comments

The Bucks had a few long losing streaks this season – 11 in November, nine in January, eight in March. But they never approached the 26 straight games the 76ers lost.

On the other hand, Philadelphia won four straight around New Year. Milwaukee never won four straight.

Or three straight.

Or even two straight.

That’s pretty special, but that’s not nearly the most amazing part. KL Chouinard of Bucksketball:

Drew played 60 games for the 1986-87 Clippers, starting 22.

He was an assistant coach on the 2004-05 Hawks, who were a year away from becoming – by far – the youngest team of all time.

And, of course, he coached this year’s Bucks, who claimed the No. 1 seed in the upcoming lottery.

I don’t think Drew is the cause of these teams not winning back-to-back games – though he certainly contributed. More so, I think luck has just place him around these three teams.

He’s the Forrest Gump of teams that don’t win consecutive games.
