Author Archive: Eric Buenning

Eric Buenning is a perpetual couch potato with an abnormally high amount of optimism for the Bucks. He enjoys tweeting more than most human interaction and is highly susceptible to moments of swog. He seeks patience from the readers, as this is his first job in this field. He’s also 6-4, 230, and is an almost decent free-throw shooter.

The Bucks were led by rookie Doron Lamb (20p/4r), current roster member Tobias Harris (19p) and relative unknown Jarrid Famous (13p/11r). So yeah, basically who you thought was going to star, right?
