They meet a Bucks team many think is the best in the N-B-A, with a 31-5 record. Giannis Antetokounmpo was just named N-B-A Player of the Month for the sixth time in the last seven months.

During his 12 seasons with the Packers Butler had 38 interceptions, 20-and-a-half sacks and was named All-Pro four times. Inductees for the Hall’s Class of 2020 will be announced February 1st.
