Shortly before taking part in the championship parade for his Milwaukee Bucks, Notre Dame product Pat Connaughton did some talking. Specifically, he came on Dan Patrick’s show via Zoom and spoke about his role in helping the Bucks win their first championship in 50 years. There is nothing about Notre Dame in this interview other than acknowledgments from Patrick of Connaughton’s alma mater at the beginning and of Connaughton’s previous life in which he juggled both basketball and baseball. Nevertheless, it’s an interesting conversation with him:

Connaughton is in a good place with the NBA champions. He just completed the first year of a three-year contract that he signed with Milwaukee last offseason. Most of the Bucks’ roster is signed for next year, so the question is whether this team can repeat with an offseason lasting only two months and even less than that for Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday, who are heading to Tokyo for the Olympics. If that happens, the story will get only better.
