Milwaukee Bucks guard Jeff Teague is officially an NBA champion, and he’s ready for all the trolling. In fact, he even started it himself!
Everyone knows that joke about those group member (or members) getting an A on a project despite absolutely doing nothing. Well, before anyone can hit Teague with that criticism, he just acknowledged it himself.
To be fair to Jeff Teague though, he did contribute a tiny, little bit in their NBA Finals run against the Phoenix Suns. In the six games where he played with a very limited role for the Bucks, he scored a total of nine points, five rebounds, four assists and three steals.
While some would say that he put a very minimal effort, no one can deny that he played and scored. That counts for something, right?
Throughout the whole playoffs, he averaged just 2.0 points on 7.5 minutes per game for the Bucks. However, there were times he didn’t play at all, missing seven outings on DNP.
Then again, you just have to be happy for Teague. After being traded to the Orlando Magic in the deal that brought Evan Fournier to the Boston Celtics, the veteran guard was immediately waived. Fortunately, he found a new home in Milwaukee with the Bucks just days later, reuniting with his old Atlanta Hawks coach in Mike Budenholzer.
Now, he can call himself a champion–regardless of what the trolls might say.
