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 last five rows of the section next to the media section I sit in every game were empty for the entirety of this game. The city of Milwaukee cared even less about this game than the Milwaukee Bucks did. This game was not fun for Bucks fans. So let’s just focus on the Boston [...]
ShareIt’s 5:30 AM on Saturday morning. The sun won’t be up for another hour and a half in Milwaukee. I’m sitting at a desk next to a window that doubles as an air conditioner in the winter. When I glance outside I see cars that haven’t been moved in days in the parking lot outside [...]
Share Houston Rockets 101 Final Recap | Box Score 95 Milwaukee Bucks Khris Middleton, PF Shot Chart 35 MIN | 7-13 FG | 3-3 FT | 4 REB | 8 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 2 TO | 20 PTS | -1 Makes. So. Many. Jump. Shots. He’s definitely the best jump [...]
ShareWhat to Watch For: Bucks Brandon Knight. Just watch him. He’s been good for a while now. Larry Sanders too. Other than that, the Bucks aren’t real good. They’ll probably lose this game. But it’ll be interesting to see Knight battle Patrick Beverley and Sanders battle the mighty Dwight Howard. Also, it’s Beard Night. That’s fun. Maybe we’ll see Miroslav Raduljica get back [...]
ShareGiannis Antetokounmpo, the Milwaukee Bucks forward who has swept the NBA world off its feet, will be selected to participate in the Skills Challenge at NBA All-Star Weekend, according to, who else, Adrian Wojnarowski. Guy has more scoops than an ice cream selling store. Because ice cream is traditionally served via scoop, most stores that [...]
ShareEarly 2013-14 season Larry Sanders was no fun. The ! seemed gone from his game, if not from his temper. He followed a blah, but not too troubling (because it was only exhibition) pre-season by failing to play well enough to be in near the end of games through four games in the regular season. [...]
ShareErsan Ilyasova rumors will persist until Ersan Ilyasova is no longer on the Milwaukee Bucks. That’s one thing I’ve learned over the past few years. Even with his contract that’s probably not in line with his actual skill level, given his inconsistencies, he flashes enough talent and has a reputation as a reliable 3-point shooting [...]
ShareWe had the chance recently to exchange e-mails with Gino Pilato, purveyor of veteran TrueHoop Network blog D-League Digest. Right now, the Bucks have no available roster spots and a roster that’s already crowded with players clamoring for more minutes. But a 2-for-1 trade or some other sort of trade that could open up a [...]
