Bucks stop here
Stars of the NBA's Milwaukee Bucks left the hardwood for the squared circle today at a SmackDown/ECW show in Milwaukee, Wis. Rubbing elbows with the likes of WWE's royalty, World Heavyweight Champion King Booker and Queen Sharmell, Bucks such as No. 34 David Noel got a rare but savory taste of the WWE experience.
"This is my first time getting a chance to come out to [a WWE event]," said Noel, a small forward for the Bucks. "I'm a huge WWE fan and have been for years, so I decided to come out and show some support."
Though one of Noel's favorite encounters was with SmackDown Divas Kristal and Jillian, the cager was in awe of others like the massive, intense Batista.
"[In WWE], you have great athletes here that do, night-in and night-out," he added, "kind of the same thing we do as basketball players, putting their bodies on the line every night."
"It's fun to watch and it's definitely going to be a fun night," he said.
