AVERILL PARK, NY (WTEN) – Do you believe in psychic abilities? If not, maybe this New Yorker can change his mind.
In 2018, Jack Paris, then a high school student from Averill Park, made a prediction in his high school yearbook. On Tuesday, his vision came true: Milwaukee Bucks, 2021 NBA champions.
âI did it the night it was due, the night before,â Paris said. âI didn’t have a quote, and I didn’t really want to make it an inspiring one because I thought it would be a little cheesy, and I’m kind of known to be a Bucks fan,â Paris said. “It was my thing in high school.”
It was not a prediction on a whim. âIt’s a very complicated story in how I came up with this solution. “
Much thought has been given to choosing the year 2021, mainly the contractual situation of Giannis Antetokounmpo. âIt was his year to sign an extension,â Paris said. “Everyone was talking about how he was going to leave Milwaukee and all that and all and I was like, ‘You know what? He’s not leaving. He wins us a championship. 2021 is the year.
In 2018, the Bucks weren’t world champions. They finished seventh in the Eastern Conference before losing to Boston in the first round. Not many people recognized their championship potential, but Jack did. âI just had faith. I knew my team was going to be good. I knew the Bucks were going to be good. Something in my stomach just said they were going to do it.
For good measure, Jack had another prediction up his sleeve for Game 6. âI was at work and we were talking about it,â Paris said. âBucks in 6 is a very famous quote among Bucks fans. So I said, ‘Bucks in 6, Giannis is going to lose 50. I just have a hunch.’ And he lost 50 points.
Believe what you want! Jack Paris knows his Milwaukee Bucks.
