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.

Share It was a precipitous fall from grace for Kendall Marshall.  On October 28, 2013, he was released by the Washington Wizards. The Wizards saw him only as a contract, a throw-in by the Phoenix Suns to make the trade for Marcin Gortat possible. A first round pick only a year and a half before, now he was only [...]

Share“It’s basketball. It’s basketball players. That’s who they are. You guys do all the labeling.” – Jason Kidd at Media Day By almost all accounts, Brandon Knight had the best season of his three year NBA career last season. It could almost been seen as a breakout season. Career highs in points per game, assists per game, [...]

Picking and rolling with Giannis Antetokounmpo

ShareThe NBA today, it’s a pick-and-roll game. The easiest play possible can present many difficulties for a defense. It can lead into a roll man catching a pass on the move that he lays in at the rim or it can lead to a point guard firing a pass across the court to a waiting [...]

It’s time to thrive, Giannis Antetokounmpo

It’s time to thrive, Giannis Antetokounmpo

ShareGiannis Antetokounmpo was a below average 19-year-old NBA player last season. Don’t interpret that as “he was a below average player and a 19-year-old.” Understand that, in terms of 19-year-old NBA players historically, he was below average. After a long off-season, this is how I invite back your vitriol. I just wanted to get that [...]

Report: Bucks sign Micheal Eric

ShareThe Milwaukee Bucks will sign Micheal Eric to a minimum salary deal, according to Shams Charina. Given the limited information of this report and the reports that the good man Shams usually provides, I’ll assume this is a non-guaranteed contract and Eric is a player who’ll be brought on to merely fill out the training [...]

ShareOkay. I’m the last guy who is ever going to tell you to purchase tickets to watch the Milwaukee Bucks play basketball. Actually, I once wrote about how you should actively avoid doing so to send a message that you were unhappy. The crux of that article was that playing for the eighth seed was [...]

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 [...]

Kendall Marshall: Milwaukee’s best passing guard and Milwaukee’s worst scoring guard

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 [...]
