The Charlie V. Twitcident

This may be the first time all year that I’ve seen mention of a Milwaukee Buck or the franchise on the front page of ESPN.

Naturally it has nothing to do with basketball.

The fact that Charlie V. was “tweeting” in the locker room doesn’t seem like such a big deal to me. Does anyone remember when Gilbert Arenas walked into and subsequently out of a shower with his uniform on, only to play in it minutes later? Or when Arenas said he played online poker at halftime to get focused?

This seems no more out of the ordinary than either of those things.

I’m sending text messages and emails from my phone all day at work, so I can hardly toss any blame at Charlie V.

Best of all is that he came out and scored 11 points in the fourth quarter to lead the Bucks to a crucial W against a great team. Where is the downside to any of this twitter in the locker room business?

I say let Charlie V. do whatever Charlie V. needs to do to get himself ready to play. The man is a professional and as long as he is showing up and giving the effort he has been for the last few months why does it matter.

Too bad the Bucks went the “we have to be professional” route.

Jeremy Schmidt writes the Milwaukee Bucks blog Bucksketball. He founded it in January of 2009 because he hated his job. It’s like basketball, but with Bucks instead of basket. I know ... I’m sorry. He might come off as a bit negative, but I'm really not so bad. He just wants the Bucks to succeed, so he points out areas where they are coming up short. Someone has got to do it and he's ornery and opinionated enough to take on that task. He isn't sure if this should be in third person or not.
