Buck Hits: CDR and Osama, Another Hoops team in Milwaukee?

There’s plenty of news going on in the world today, but not a whole lot is about the Milwaukee Bucks. What I could scrounge up is today’s Buck Hits.

Mike Hunt chimes in about the 2010-2011 Bucks offense on BND.com.
Gery Woelfel reports on the Bucks Euro prospects for the upcoming draft. Charles Gardner at JSOnline says Hammond is looking to improve specifically at the backup point guard and backup center positions.
In case you haven’t heard, Osama Bin Laden was killed Sunday night. CDR created quite a stir on Twitter afterwards, recapped by Dan over at Brewhoop. The Bucks seem to have a penchant for getting in trouble on Twitter.
Jake McCormick at We’re Bucked writes about Luc Richard Mbah a Moute’s surprisingly encouraging offensive statistics.
This is actually old hat, but it’s the first I’ve heard of the matter. The Bucks will officially have competition in Milwaukee, as an ABA franchise known as the Milwaukee Blast is coming to town. The team will reportedly play at Wisconsin Lutheran College, and the season begins November 4th. I’m all for more basketball in the city, but is Milwaukee ready to support a second team?
(JEREMY NOTE ON ABA TEAM: Marshall Williams is the head coach. ┬áSo … if you’re familiar with his work, this isn’t exactly a surefire operation destined for great success.)

  1. And if you thought more salt in the wound wasn’t possible, Chris Sheridan has some:

    “Yes, it is Memphis, and on an individual basis it is Zach Randolph. That was quite a mouthful Kevin Durant spit out yesterday when he called him the best power forward in the league. It is worth reminding folks in Milwauke that the Bucks could have had him three years ago for Dan Gadzuric and a second player whose name I can’t immediately recall, but Senator Kohl vetoed he trade. I am not ready to change by pick for champion, which remains the Lakers.”


  2. Randolph is having a good year, but at the time he was an underachieving head case. Who knows if he’d still be here, or what we would have gotten out of him.

  3. The trade would have been: Bobby Simmons, Dan Gadzuric and Charlie Bell for Zach Randolph and Fred Jones.

    Who knows, he could be a big contract (~$17 million/year for 3 years) we’d regret. His contract would have been a big risk at the time.
