Bucksketball Podcast

Author Archive: Jeremy Schmidt

Jeremy Schmidt writes the Milwaukee Bucks blog Bucksketball. He founded it in January of 2009 because he hated his job. It’s like basketball, but with Bucks instead of basket. I know ... I’m sorry.

He might come off as a bit negative, but I'm really not so bad. He just wants the Bucks to succeed, so he points out areas where they are coming up short. Someone has got to do it and he's ornery and opinionated enough to take on that task. He isn't sure if this should be in third person or not.

ShareThe one question that seemed like it needed answering more than any last season, a season spent on player development and moving away from the idea of just making the playoffs being good enough, was whether or not Brandon Knight had what it took to be a point guard in the NBA. After a season long commitment [...]

ShareI didn’t realize it at the time, but now I know I’ve spent far too many hours justifying Brandon Jennings‘s ability to play point guard in my life. Virtually for as long as he was with the Milwaukee Bucks, I remember having conversations about his assist numbers and offensive productivity. It wasn’t that he was a bad [...]
