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.

ShareIt was almost alarming how bad the Summer Milwaukee Bucks looked Monday night in an 87-71 loss to the Summer Utah Jazz. They couldn’t hit a jump shot. They couldn’t finish at the rim. They had no answer for raw second year center Rudy Gobert, who sealed off defenders and finished in the paint on offense [...]

They keep stats for summer league games. Jabari Parker finished with 11 points and 11 rebounds. Nate Wolters scored [...]

While waiting in line for the sandwich at four in the morning inside of a hotel [...]
Cavaliers 70 – Bucks 68 (Bucks fans who care about the score: 0 Bucks fans happy about Giannis and Jabari: All)
ShareMy travels to the Cox Pavilion on Friday night to watch what I already knew was a much anticipated Las Vegas Summer League game between the Milwaukee Bucks and Cleveland Cavaliers (read those last 14 words a few more times, let them sink in) were not smooth travels. On top of that, I did not [...]
ShareThe Milwaukee Bucks announced their 2014 Vegas Summer League roster yesterday. The group is headlined by Jabari Parker and Giannis Antetokounmpo. Nate Wolters and Chris Wright of last season’s Bucks and second round selection Johnny O’Bryant will be making the trip as well. Among non-roster players, former Purdue center JaJuan Johnson likely has the most potential. As a senior at Purdue, he was the Big 10 Player [...]
ShareGive Marc Lasry and Wes Edens some credit: They’ve put their stamp on the Milwaukee Bucks organization quickly. They want to rebuild and appear to be committed to that being a long term process. While they wait for wins to arrive, they’ll collect talent and act decisively when they get the chance to acquire the talent they want. [...]
ShareA cursory glance at Basketball-Reference.com tells us a few things about the 2013-14 Brooklyn Nets. Last season the Brooklyn Nets were slow. They weren’t very good defensively and they were average an offense. This is not the whole story of the 2013-14 Brooklyn Nets. Its also not a good guide to the coach that Jason Kidd was [...]
