Share • I come in a minute and a half late and the Bucks are already up 5…I like that.• Another Jim Chones evening. I like Johnny Mac as much as anyone, but I’ve grown to like the dry assessments Chones has brought to the table.• Ramon Sessions blows a wide open lay up and [...]

ShareThere is a bit of a brouhaha brewing in Brewtown. (How about all those Brew noises I just made your mind say.) I noticed this on a JSOnline thread. Apparently the Bucks are not happy with former Buck Gary Payton, who is now working on NBA TV doing a show with Ahmad Rashad and Chris [...]

ShareAlmost to the day a month ago I did my best to break down the Eastern Conference playoff race. I was looking for a term to describe it when the comments section did it’s best and I was rewarded with “flaccid sword fight”. Thanks to “Cookies” for that one. Well the fight has changed a [...]

ShareI’m outraged. ESPN takes a pass on Bucks-Hornets. Sometimes it really sucks to live in Milwaukee. Detroit is playing some of the worst basketball in the league right now and ESPN has decided to reward them with yet another nationally televised game. I can’t help but recall when the Knicks began their descent into the [...]

ShareI picked a helluva weekend to go out of town. Friday and Sunday will probably go down as two of the most eventful Bucks games of the year. First, Lebron James puts his hit man gloves on and methodically destroys the Bucks to the tune of 55-9. I caught most of the 4th quarter of [...]

ShareTrade deadlines are like the panic holiday. All these GM’s whose team’s are under performing feel like they need to make moves to “shake things up” or cut costs. That’s how guys like Tyson Chandler end up getting shipped away (almost) for nothing. The trade deadline leaves us with legendary failures like Steve Francis in [...]

ShareWhen I was in elementary school we had detailed report cards. I wouldn’t even call them report cards, they were never that harsh. Report cards have letter grades and little feedback. On these everything was all checks and pluses and if a teacher really wanted to send a message they’d put a minus next to [...]

ShareAfter yet another Buck free All-Star Weekend the Bucks head to Detroit to begin the “second half” of the season. Watching the introductions to this game I can’t help but notice the once again expressionless face of Tim Duncan. Dwight Howard did a dance, Lebron did a dance, KG did a dance, almost everyone did [...]

Time for a Re-Session

Time for a Re-Session

ShareIn the very first piece I posted on this site I questioned whether or not Ramon Sessions was capable of being a great (or good) NBA point guard. Earlier in the season he was prone to bizarre turnovers having to do with a seemingly undeveloped ability to dribble the ball. Dribbling is probably the most [...]
