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.

Contact him at Jeremy@Bucksketball.com if you must use e-mail.

ShareMiroslav Raduljica Moves very slowly. Solid player may exist, within mighty frame. In one pre-game media session, Larry Drew spent a good 45 seconds discussing Raduljica’s strengths as a shooter. I remember him talking about his stroke and how we haven’t really seen it yet, but his ability was there. ‘Slav didn’t get much of [...]
