Notice the Hawks were eliminated with 118 points, in their MLK jerseys, that debuted this year on January 18, 2021 (1/18), by the ‘Wisconsin’ team, when Wisconsin = 118. Adding to the riddle, their elimination, today, July 3, 2021, comes a span of 167 days from their debut, the 39th prime, and the Hawks picked up their 39th loss of the season, similar to how MLK (and Malcolm X) were assassinated at age 39. As for the Hawks going down with 107, both ‘shooting’ and ‘Saturday’ equate to 107, and of course MLK was killed in a shooting.
*Also noteworthy, today leaves 181 days left in the year, and January 18 can be written 18/1, like 181, the 42nd prime number. *Martin = 42 *Malcom X = 42
*Keep in mind the Bucks will now face Arizona, the last state to recognize MLK Day.
