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.

Sometimes guys will block two shots in a row. These guys are usually centers and the second shot is usually an offensive rebound. It’s [...]

ShareWill Glenn Robinson and Coolio be at this game? Obviously. It’s Y2K night, which feels a lot more like 90s night, but that’s okay. Whatever it takes to get everyone reminiscing about Glenn Robinson. The oft-criticized, now fondly remembered shooting forward from the very good but not quite great Bucks teams of the late 90s [...]

Horrifying Ersan Ilyasova rumor should make all Bucks fans sad to be Bucks fans

| February 20, 2014 | 7 Replies

ShareThis has been a fairly quiet trade deadline. It’s possible (likely) that there’s very little interest in players who play for the NBA-worst Milwaukee Bucks. Veterans like Gary Neal and Luke Ridnour sound like they are drawing some interest, but they aren’t really needle movers in the league. They’ll be had for a price that is small. Of greater [...]
