ShareAfter Brandon Jennings’s comments regarding the Bucks offense not running through him the way it did last season, many pointed to Jennings low assist totals and high volume of shots as proof that the Bucks offense still runs through Jennings.  I looked up the numbers, saw a team leader in scoring and a guy second [...]

ShareFrom tip to finish, there were virtually no surprises in Milwaukee’s 83-75 loss to the Chicago Bulls Saturday night.  Both teams represented themselves well on the defensive end, as you’d expect the second and fifth ranked defensive teams in the league to do.  Milwaukee shot under 40%, as they often do.  Luol Deng played well [...]

ShareThis isn’t rocket science.  Teams in the NBA that have talent win more than they lose.  Teams that aren’t all that talented lose more than they win. The five Bucks that played the most minutes against the Knicks Wednesday night?  Andrew Bogut, John Salmons, Carlos Delfino, Brandon Jennings and Keyon Dooling.  Not a one of [...]

ShareThe All-Star break is over, and after watching the game last night, it’s clear that no fire has been lit under this Bucks team. Sure, they got the win, but Bucks fans were hoping to start the second half with a bang. A six point victory over the 13-44 Wolves isn’t inspiring anyone, but you [...]

ShareRecap/Box Score/Enemy Over the years, the NBA trade deadline has been blamed for a lot of bad basketball.  A great example of this phenomenon came roughly a year ago, right here in Milwaukee.

ShareThe boundless hours of rehab that have finally landed Michael Redd back in Milwaukee probably aren’t comparable to the many minutes Redd spent studying how to be a professional with Ray Allen back in the early 2000s, but the symmetry is worth noting.  From start to finish, Redd’s story as a member of the Bucks, [...]
