NOW: Fans excited about Milwaukee Bucks home opener

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- As if there wasn't enough excitement surrounding tonight's home opener, Lebron James and the Cavs are in town for a nationally televised game! The game is also bringing in some international fans.

Hours before the Bucks season opener, fans lined up to get their hands on the newest team gear.

"Well, we've come over for this and to actually see a Packers game," said Jacki Goodwin, a Bucks fan from Australia.

Jack Goodwin made the trip to take in some Wisconsin sports.

Dozens of people made their way through the pro shop to pick up the new-look Bucks jerseys. Like several other NBA teams, the Bucks are wearing sponsored uniforms.

The new jerseys will run you about $124 and only Giannis Antetokounmpo's name is available.

As people at the Bradley Center prepare for a big crowd, fans lined up early to get their tickets. 

"A home opener wanna see Lebron James and basically the all-star game also wanna see Giannis and the young team in Milwaukee," said Spencer Fuqua, a Bucks fan.

"I feel good. I watched the opening game against the Celtics and I'm very very very excited for the season," said Joe Burgos, Bucks fan. 

The game starts at 6 p.m.
