I’m really nauseous and stuffy right now, so that must mean the existentialist horror of the Milwaukee Bucks regular season is a week away. In January, we’ll all be reminiscing about the halcyon days that were the Bucks (possibly) .500 preseason.

Through preseason here is what we know that we know and what we know that we don’t know and what we don’t know what we don’t know:

What we know that we know:

  • Tobias Harris is the starting small forward.
  • Samuel Dalembert, Mike Dunleavy, Drew Gooden, and Beno Udrih are the first guys off the bench.
  • Doron Lamb is good at leaking out.
  • John Henson, Ekpe Udoh, and Larry Sanders block a lot of shots.
  • The Bucks aren’t particularly adept at defensive rebounding.

We know that we don’t know:

  • Who is the starting center?
  • Will Lamb and Henson get minutes?
  • Can Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis get along?
  • Can Lamb perform well in the halfcourt offense?

We don’t know that we don’t know:

  • ???

Please share any other preseason revelations in the comments.

The Minnesota Timberwolves are one of the few teams dealing with much worse injuries than the Bucks. Kevin Love  broke his hand doing knuckle push-ups. He is scheduled to be out for another 5 – 7 weeks. Ricky Rubio isn’t scheduled to return for 5 – 7 weeks as well. The Bucks will play a regular season against the Timberwolves in Minnesota before either return.

Choose the Form of the Destroyer

What the Timberwolves do have is Nikola Pekovic. With Love and Rubio gone, Pekovic becomes one of the Timberwolves top offensive options. He’s an efficient scorer and a strong rebounder.

He is also terrifying. Here is one of his tattoos:

Here is another tatoo:

 

I am concerned for Larry Sanders.

Ekpe Udoh All Star Watch

Haha, ok, I saw yesterday that the usurper of my game previews tried to make this a Larry Sanders All Star Watch. FAT CHANCE! That’s so whack, it’s first name should be knick knack paddy.

Bounce, bounce, bounce, bounce, bounce. ALL THE LADIES SAY! Bounce, bounce, bounce, bounce, bounce

Prediction: Everyone has a safe Halloween everyone.

    I am going to this game tonight. As is my preseason ritual, I go to the game that they play at the Resch (if they do that particular year). Considering I had a wee bit too much sauce last night I will actually stay sober and pay closer attention to the game than I normally do. Woooo!!!

  2. John Proctor says:

    I know that Larry Sanders is our future starting center.

    Pretty ugly game last night. The offense wasn’t cohesive in the least. The defense looked ok, when it tried, which was kind of rare. I understand it was preseason so I know this happens. But, sadly, I think I have lowered my expectations some for the team for this season. Hope I’m wrong. But my boys Harris and Lamb looked pretty good. Especially Lamb, that guy just looks like he knows how to play this beast. Also, you’re right about Pekovic, that guy looks like murdering people is what he does for a living, and basketball is just a hobby on the side. Yikes. Keep an eye on the papers in Minneapolis for a string of homicides by pummeling, done by someone with an eastern European accent…
