Finally! The Milwaukee Bucks are allowed to play basketball. The season only started about eight weeks ago, but I must thank the rest of the NBA for allowing the Bucks to join them.
I guess the Boston Celtics are supposed to be universally hated because they’re overly-emotional and a bunch of cheaters, but I like them. A youth heavily influenced by professional wrestling has taught me that lying, cheating, and stealing goes hand-in-hand with charisma and intriguing characters. Rajon Rondo may clothesline someone, but I bet if you gave him a mic, he’d have an unbelievably charming explanation for the incident.
This Celtics frontcourt is weak past Kevin Garnett. The Celtics have traded in a bigger frontcourt in exchange for extra versatility. The Bucks have done the opposite – choosing to stock up on big men as many contenders go small. This game is an early test to see if the Bucks attempt to stick with basketball traditionalism is wise or stubborn.
Rondo averages 11 assists a game versus the Bucks. To knock that number down tonight isn’t just a matter of Jennings stopping him or the big men rotating to block Rondo – it’s going to be everyone working together to clog Rondo’s passing lanes.

Marquis Daniels tweets this every morning. This will now be my standard salutation.
The Udoh-led Bucks defense is currently first in the NBA in points allowed. Also, Udoh has great choice in pants.
I’m starting to get better after suffering from the flu all week, so I’m feeling optimistic
Bucks 103 – Celtics 97
