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.

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 [...]

ShareDJ Stephens Jumps so very high Other discernable skills? Those remain unclear. DJ Stephens most impressive attributes this season were his leaping ability and ability to have an agent whose father is the Milwaukee Bucks Director of Player Personnel, which seems like it could have had an impact on his sudden 10-day contract from the [...]

ShareLarry Sanders Trouble on/off court tried the patience of many. Enjoys Instagram.

ShareThe season from hell. Where everything went wrong. Where everyone got hurt. Where the coach could never install what he wanted to do. Where players fought with each other. Where a centerpiece was nearly arrested and definitely suspended. Where the team lost more games than it ever had before. I thought for certain I would [...]

ShareA text came through my phone around 9 PM Wednesday night: Henson might be softer than Drake Topical. A friend of mine was at the Milwaukee Bucks – Indiana Pacers game and she had seen enough out of John Henson. To be fair, she’s probably attended more games than any other friend of mine, so [...]
