Earlier today, before the Bucks were eliminated from the playoffs, we discovered from sources that Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer’s brother passed away in a vehicle accident.
One of Budenholzer’s three brothers was reportedly slain before to Game 4, according to “The Athletic.” Monday prior was that.
The tragedy has been confirmed by Budenholzer, the magazine claims, via a Bucks team spokeswoman.
Darvin Ham, the current Lakers coach and a former assistant coach with the Bucks, made the first public reference of it.
We are still unsure of which brother was killed or any other details surrounding his passing.
Our heartfelt condolences go out to the deceased’s family and friends, who have been struggling with the loss of such an intelligent and compassionate individual.
