NOW: Jon McGlocklin talks about Bucks’ only championship

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Milwaukee Bucks won their only NBA Championship in 1971 and on Wednesday, one of the players from that team talked about then and now. 

"When the Bucks get hot like this it's like I'm hot again."

Jon McGlocklin was a shooting guard for the 1971 champs and during a public tour of Fiserv Forum, he talked about the experience. He even showed off his championship ring. 

McGlocklin says Milwaukee's reaction to that championship was kind of subdued. 

"I think when we won it, we won it so easily that people kinda weren't ready. And this is my one beef, The city never had a parade for us. The Brewers came in second in the World Series in '82 and had a parade, we never had a parade. They didn't even acknowledge us," McGlocklin said. 

McGlocklin spent decades after his playing career as a broadcaster for the Bucks. He says he believes the Bucks will win the series against the Raptors.
