  1. Geez…just what did he do? I would prefer to be informed on this…like we can afford him out of lineup….Hammond said sacrifices would have to be made in order to win, during J.J. press conference. I cant see how this helps!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Late to shootaround…? Really? that gets a suspension? Would this apply to Jennings, Ellis, Sanders? I doubt it! How foolish a move is this?

    • Sam couldn’t make the morning shoot around in time and was suspended in what is a very important game for the Bucks. Every game is an important game for the Bucks.

      On a side note, Tobias Harris is 4 for 4, 1 RB, 1 Steal and 1 Blks, 9 points in 1/2 half against the Sixers. We gave up on Harris too soon and I can’t believe Orlando gave Harris, Dwight Howard’s old number 12. At least Harris is helping the Bucks cause with another good performance for the Magic.

      Wish he was still on our team!

    • If Jennings, Ellis and Sanders were habitually late for shoot around and games I am sure that it would and does apply to them. However, they were not the ones that were not at shoot around.

      How can you have a TEAM and let players come to games and practice whenever THEY get around to it. All teams do this…just ask Rodney Stuckey of the Pistons.

      There is only one person that should take blame here and that is Dalembert. He lets everyone on his team down when he pulls this stuff.

      So glad that the rest of the team that DOES make it on time was able to win this game.

  3. it’s not the 1st time this has happened to him this season, If im not mistaken he was late to a game against the Bulls and then that appeared to be the straw that broke the camels back and landed him in Skiles dog house

  4. Hopefully this won’t result in him being burried on the bench for half the season. I’d like to see some Ayon tonight. Could be fun?
