“This collaboration is a nod to one of the greatest basketball players in the game and what he has done and continues to do for our city,” he said in a message on social media. 

The project, which adorns the east facade of a building at 600 E. Wisconsin Avenue, took more than 100 hours to complete.

The Bucks’ chief marketing officer Dustin Godsey said the mural is part of ongoing efforts by the club to support public art in Milwaukee.
