One Pack a Day – 2015-16 NBA Hoops – Day 9 of 48

Pretty chill pack.  The first card was a Michael Carter-Williams “Road to the Finals” first round insert # /2015.  Higher numbering than the DeAndre Jordan second round card we saw yesterday (# /999), so Panini probably is making the cards more rare with the advancing playoff rounds.

Speaking of the Bucks, I am learning how to spell and pronounce Giannis Antetokounmpo’s name.  He’s a great player!

img_6698From wikipedia:

Giannis Antetokounmpo (Greek: Γιάννης Αντετοκούνμπο, Greek pronunciation: [ˈʝanis a(n)detoˈkun(m)bo]; born December 6, 1994)[1] is a Greek professional basketball player for the Milwaukee Bucks of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He stands at 6 ft 11 in (2.11 m), and while he primarily plays the small forward position, he is equally as effective as a guard due to his sound ball-handling skills. During the 2015–16 season, he began to shine as the Bucks’ primary playmaker.[2] He is of Nigerian descent.[3][4]

 

The rest of the pack was mostly average and not too inspiring.  Looking forward to tomorrow’s!
