For Jeff Teague, this season was a tale of two halves. Teague started the season with the Boston Celtics but was traded to the Orlando Magic on trade deadline day. Surprisingly, the Magic waived Teague two days after his arrival, as they prepared to begin their rebuilding process. In came the Milwaukee Bucks, and signed the former NBA All-Star to a contract.

While Teague was not the star of the team, he played important minutes for the Bucks. But still, he saw the humor in his achievement.

So when he got waived from the Orlando Magic, it seemed as though the veteran guard would not get a chance to win a title in his career. But now that he is an NBA champion
