Yesterday morning, Bucks fans got a pleasant surprise when Giannis Antetokounmpo, the MVP of the NBA Finals, celebrated his 50-point performance, which gave the Bucks their first title in 50 years, by ordering 50 chicken nuggets at Chick-Fil-A.
Did Giannis visit the fast food restaurant on his own volition, or might there have been a riddle behind it? We will probably never know for sure, but there’s some interesting numerology nonetheless.
The number Fifty has Reverse gematria of 69, matching the Jewish value of Chick-Fil-A.
The first Moon landing occurred in the year ‘69. Consider how Milwaukee scored 118 points to reach the Finals, and then gave up 118 points in Games 1 and 2. Their other NBA Championship in 1971 was earned when they scored 118 points in the clinching game over the Baltimore Bullets.
The Bucks became the first team to win the NBA Championship in July. The Full Moon in July happens to be called the Buck Moon:
Milwaukee clinched the Finals on July 20th, the 52nd anniversary of the Moon landing, defeating the Phoenix Suns.
The gematria of Fifty is just one off the number 52 in Jewish gematria.
This syncs up with the Reduction values for N-B-A.
The number Fifty-two has Ordinal gematria of 124.
The Chick-Fil-A Giannis visited the morning after their victory was at 124th and Capitol.
The Bucks‘ victory, which was on 20/7, happened to fall on the same date that the NFL’s Bucs visited the White House to celebrate their Super Bowl victory, which happened on 2/07.
Milwaukee’s Game 6 victory at Fiserv Forum was their 62nd of the season. Giannis ordered chicken nuggets at Chick-Fil-A, perhaps reminding us of the NBA’s Denver Nuggets.
The Bucs won Super Bowl 55.
The 44th Prime number is 193

Mike Budenholzer, who was hired at age 48, earned his 48th career playoff victory in his 48th postseason game with the Milwaukee Bucks.
