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.

Share Joel Embiid has a stress fracture in his right foot. He won’t be working out in Milwaukee. He might fall out of the top five. He definitely has shaken up the plans of teams with a top pick in this year’s NBA Draft. Naturally, this is the first draft in quite some time in which [...]
ShareIt’s time to put to rest the idea that players will refuse to play for the Milwaukee Bucks.
