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.

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 [...]

Starting to play pretty well: Larry Sanders

Starting to play pretty well: Larry Sanders

| February 6, 2014 | 3 Replies

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. [...]

Does Ersan Ilyasova want out of Milwaukee?

| February 5, 2014 | 16 Replies

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 [...]

ShareAs is his way, when asked about his game winning shot against the New York Knicks, Brandon Knight first gave glory to God. Then his teammates. “I think my teammates did a great job tonight just persevering,” he said. “They made a lot of big shots towards the end, and our past habits have been [...]

ShareLarry Drew has a problem. He’s trapped in a never ending cycle of effortless losses during which his team trailed by at least 20 points and he can’t figure out how to get out.  Every night, after each loss, the next more crushing and demoralizing than the last, he has to answer the same questions from what may [...]
