Whatever your favorite NBA team had tonight for halftime entertainment, it’s not as cool as Vanilla Ice. The Milwaukee Bucks went all-out for “’90s Night” at the Bradley Center, hiring the iconic one-hit wonder to perform at halftime of their Saturday evening game against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Unfortunately, the performance was not carried on the Bucks’ home broadcast, but that makes it all the more special for those lucky enough to be in attendance for this once-in-a-lifetime event. It’s not exactly difficult to see Vanilla Ice in concert if one is so inclined – he’s a staple of state fairs and the Gathering of the Juggalos. But no matter how many times you’ve seen the Ice Ice Baby rapper live, you’ve never seen him perform while wearing a Monta Ellis throwback jersey.
You see, the “full deer” jerseys the Bucks have worn several times this year (and, needless to say, broke out again for ’90s night) are some of the best in NBA history and should be worn all the time, no matter whether they’re playing at home or on the road. That a legend on the level of Vanilla Ice wore one only increases their stature.
