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.

ShareWhat to Watch For: Bucks Ersan Ilyasova should return for the Bucks (Update: He isn’t returning. He may never return.).
