Jon Hartzell is a Bucks fan trying to be more optimistic. Larry Sanders is wonderful. During the Fear the Deer run he was a ball boy for the team and was constantly yelled at by Kelvin Sampson. He’s currently a student at UW-Madison and writes for NBA.com, DIME Magazine, and (formerly) A.V. Club Milwaukee.

While a guard seems likely, John Hammond said on Tuesday he, “won’t rule out [the Bucks] taking center or forward,” according to Charles Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. In order to get a [...]

ShareAndrew Gruman from Fox Sports Wisconsin reported on Monday that the Milwaukee Bucks have offered Israeli and former Wichita State point guard Gal Mekel a spot on the team’s summer league roster. Mekel will reportedly consider his options before accepting the offer, so there’s no guarantee we’ll ever see him in a Bucks uniform. But [...]

ShareThis series has unfolded as everyone besides Brandon Jennings expected. But that doesn’t make the results any less depressing. That’s where I come in. I’m here to change the subject and find something more fun to think about besides Jennings not knowing how to shoot and Ish Smith receiving playing time. I’m going to answer the [...]

ShareSomehow the 2012-13 regular season is over and somehow the Milwaukee Bucks are in the playoffs with a record of 38-44. They’ll open their postseason this Sunday in Miami and they’ll probably end their postseason next Sunday in Milwaukee. Hopefully this series with the Heat is more entertaining than embarrassing and hopefully these are the [...]

ShareThe Bucks make me sad. The seventh seed in the East is there for them to take but they seem incapable of playing with the consistency or ability needed for them to obtain it. They’ve positioned themselves in the middle of mediocrity and will probably be eliminated from the playoffs in Milwaukee, with bandwagon Heat-bros [...]

ShareAfter last night’s win against the Lakers, the Milwaukee Bucks are now two games behind the Celtics for the seventh-seed. Both teams have ten games left, with the Bucks playing six playoff teams and the Celtics playing five. Basically, it will be difficult but not impossible. So, uh, let’s be optimistic. Go team! Woot! Seventh [...]

ShareI was legitimately optimistic about the Milwaukee Bucks at the beginning of the week. I felt this way partially because of their impressive west coast trip and partially because I was forcing myself to. But that doesn’t matter. I was optimistic and it was nice. Then the last two games happened and now I just [...]
