MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- It's not every day that you get coached by Bucks legend Sidney Moncrief.

The Bucks teamed up with the Special Olympics of Wisconsin on Monday.

It was a unique opportunity for athletes from the Milwaukee and Madison areas. Roughly 100 players hit the court at Nicolet High School. They learned new skills, got tips from the Bucks youth basketball staff, and focused on the fundamentals.

This is the 10th year that the Bucks have teamed up with the organization.

"They care about these young people in a special way. They want to make sure they play the game of Basketball the right away and that's what we're trying to emphasize today. Have fun but make sure you're playing the right way. It's really neat to have them here because they're showing the community 'hey you've got an organization that's been around for 50 years.' Go out and help them," said Sidney Moncrief.

The Bucks Rim Rockers also put on a dunk show for everyone to enjoy.
