Perfect last-minute gifts for the Bucks fans in your life!

Win Christmas by getting the Bucks fan on your list some Kareem Collection gear

So we're about two weeks out from Christmas, and you're still wondering what to get the Bucks fans on your list. They already have all the jerseys – including that new MECCA monstrosity alternate – T-shirts and hats, and they've already got autographs from the entire team, including the medical staff for some reason. And unfortunately you can't purchase first-round playoff series wins. What to do?

Thankfully, the Bucks and clothing company Mitchell & Ness have your back, as the two teamed up last Friday on a special new line of Bucks merchandise called the Kareem Collection, a group of cool new team swag celebrating both the team and Bucks great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

Plastered with Kareem's classic number, the retro Bucks logos and Kareem's signature specs, the new collection is sure to be a slam dunk (or an alley-oop or a swish or whatever overused basketball analogy you prefer) with the Milwaukee sports fan in your life. All of the looks are great, though my personal recommendation is the T-shirt that puts old school Bango logo big and upfront. That one, and the skyhook shirt – though every time I look at that shirt, I honestly think it's for the Seattle Sonics. Still cool – and certainly a much better Christmas gift for a Bucks fan than that Dellavedova jersey that was originally on their list!

All of the Kareem Collection T-shirts and hats run between $40 and $50 at the Bucks Pro Shop's website, while sweaters and hoodies run about double that. The collection is also available at all Bucks Pro Shop and Name of the Game locations throughout Milwaukee, with the Fiserv Forum Pro Shop altering its hours to 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Mondays through Fridays and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
