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.

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

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 [...]

Giannis block: Anthony Morrow encourages Anthony Davis to “DUNK THAT SHIT”, but his plan is thwarted

ShareI’ve watched this block enough after seeing it in person that I don’t even focus on it anymore. I’m more caught up in the vocal track that’s picked up by the rim microphone. “DUNK THAT SHIT.” The drop came right as Anthony Davis propelled himself up off the ground, obviously on the way to a [...]

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 [...]
