NOW: 1971 Bucks ball boy celebrates team’s NBA Championship -- again!

MADISON, Wis. (CBS 58) -- There's a Milwaukee Bucks fan in Madison who has a special connection to the organization. 

Patrick McBride was the ball boy for the Bucks when they won their championship in 1971. 

"I was there. I met the team. Got champagne poured on me. And I was part of the championship team," said McBride. 

McBride was only 17 when he sat on the Bucks bench during that championship season.

He told CBS 58 he wants to come to Milwaukee to get a newspaper to match the one from 50 years ago. 

He had nothing but good things to say about the experience.
