The crossroads have begun. The Milwaukee Bucks have received their report card from the media, players were handed their mediocre grades, and season recaps paint gloomy pictures at best. JSOnline begs the question: Which Buck sucked more this year? How about which part of the team?

Tensions were high as Bucks were asked about the new collective bargaining agreement. One thing is certain; nothing is certain. A shortened season is something the Bucks simply cannot afford, but may not be able to avoid.

Skiles has now officially gone on record calling Brandon Jennings’ leadership a “work in progress”. While really a no-brainer, Skiles hasn’t formally called Jennings out on the topic. It will be interesting to see how Jennings responds come next season.

Alex at Brewhoop puts a positive spin on the Bucks not squeaking into the 8th seed of the playoffs this year.

Not much is being made of the Bucks’ arena concerns in the press, outside of a rant over at I, for one, am watching the Sacramento Kings situation like a hawk. Sacramento is going through what Milwaukee may very well go through in the next couple years. I don’t often make predictions, but  I feel strongly about this: the Bucks are another losing season or two away from leaving Milwaukee. It doesn’t matter that the Bradley Center is in decent condition, what matters is the stadium’s ability to pay the team’s bills and make a profit. With the news that 22 of 30 NBA teams lost money this year, the clock is ticking on the long term future of the Bucks in Milwaukee.
