The Bucks rank 27th in the NBA in attendance despite playing solid basketball. Milwaukee is 14-15 but has the point difference of a 16-13 team, and Giannis Antetokounmpo is the league’s biggest breakout star.

It’s almost as if fans don’t trust this team after last season’s 33-49 flop.

So, the Bucks are taking a creative approach.

Darren Rovell of ESPN:

Tuesday, the Milwaukee Bucks will announce that they’re offering a 10-win plan.

That’s right, guaranteed wins.

In a package that will go on sale Tuesday through Jan. 11, the Bucks will sell fans a ticket pass for $149 that will begin on Jan. 13 against the Miami Heat and will be active until the Bucks win 10 home games. The location of the seats will vary from game to game, depending on what’s available. Fans will get their ticket on the day of the game through the team’s app.

This is ingenious. It greatly increases the odds fans leave the arena happy – getting either a Bucks win or more value on their purchase.

Milwaukee – 10-7 at home so far – will have 21 home games remaining once the package begins, the first 10 bolded:

  • Jan. 13: Heat
  • Jan. 16: 76ers
  • Jan. 23: Rockets
  • Jan. 25: 76ers
  • Jan. 28: Celtics
  • Feb. 8: Heat
  • Feb. 10: Lakers
  • Feb. 13: Pistons
  • Feb. 24: Jazz
  • Feb. 26: Suns
  • March 1: Nuggets
  • March 3: Clippers
  • March 4: Raptors
  • March 8: Knicks
  • March 10: Pacers
  • March 11: Timberwolves
  • March 24: Hawks
  • March 26: Bulls
  • March 31: Pistons
  • April 2: Mavericks
  • April 10: Hornets

How many games will purchasers get? My guess: 15.
