Shall Meeks Inherit the Bucks?

Whether Meeks will be able to unglue himself from the bench remains to be seen. If he’s not, all is not lost. Redd spent all but 35 minutes of his first season nailed to the pine, but spent a lot of time with Ray Allen learning what it took to be a pro. Whether the strong shooting guard tradition continues is up to Jodie Meeks now.

Even before the moment Jennings came skipping out onto the court it was evident he’d be a popular topic. If there is one thing Jennings knows how to do, it’s take over a room.

I’ve never lost anyone close to me, so this is as big of a loss as I’ve ever suffered. Looking for words to describe his loss leaves me lost. I know Sessions isn’t a superstar or a player who’s necessarily crucial to the franchise’s long term stability, but he fits so well with the Bucks new plan, it only made sense to do everything possible to bring him back.

Bucks History and Retired Numbers

Bucks History and Retired Numbers

| September 11, 2009 | 7 Replies

Retiring a player’s number is a special event that is supposed to be reserved for special players in a team’s history. If a ten-year-old kid looks up at the Bucks rafters this season he’s going to see Bob Lanier’s name and number up there with Oscar Robertson and Kareem. He’s going to think Lanier played as important a role for the Bucks as The Big O and Kareem. He’s going to be wrong.

I’d like nothing more than kicking back on March 14 after a long night and watching the Bucks take on the Pacers from the comfort of my own home, but I won’t have that opportunity. Instead, I’ll have to trudge out in the subzero March weather to see two teams that will likely not be playing for much.

ShareSunday I took in a Brewer game at Miller Park.  Jeff Suppan appropriately turned in one of his rare stellar performances and Casey McGahee provided some fireworks with a home run.  There were enough exciting plays to keep fans interested and chanting loudly.  But there was one recurring moment that seemed to stand out with [...]
