Buck Hits: Throwback jerseys, the potential of Tobias, and more LARRY SANDERS!

| February 1, 2013 | 10 Replies

Share It’s February! That happened quick! What happened to January!? Where’d it go?! I have no idea. It’s also 2013, guys. That’s crazy. It’s the future. And because it’s the future, anything is possible. Like flying cars! Or instant pizza! Preferably instant pizza because pizza is pizza and I wouldn’t trust a stinkin’ flying car. [...]

Buck Hits: Trade rumors, LARRY SANDERS! and John Hammond’s extension

ShareLast week during Buck Hits I suspected that the Milwaukee Bucks would be buyers at the February 21 trade deadline since it seems impossible that they won’t make the playoffs. This week, most of the links are about the Bucks acquiring talent (being buyers) at the deadline. Am I a prophet? Am I John Hammond? [...]

The Milwaukee Bucks’ Sinister Six (and friends)

ShareLast night, the nickname “Dr. Blocktopus” was created by Eric Buenning and me for Larry Sanders. Sanders dug the nickname and Eric and I began to collaborate on the Milwaukee Bucks’ version of the Sinister Six from Spider Man. Eric wrote the words and I made the images. We didn’t want to stop after six [...]

ShareOne of the most difficult steps in writing about Scott Skiles is choosing which angry photo of him to use with the article. With Skiles and the Milwaukee Bucks recently thrust into the national spotlight, a lot of websites had to make the difficult decision of choosing which Skiles photo to use. I’m here to [...]

ShareAt first, this introduction to Buck Hits was super pessimistic. But then I remembered that it’s 2013. Fresh starts. New beginnings. 2012 pessimism is so 2012. So, instead of talking about sad things (like this), let’s talk about John Henson and how much we love him. Isn’t he great!? Watch him learn how to dance! So fun! [...]

ShareThis is the last Buck Hits post of 2012. What fun we’ve had! Currently, the Milwaukee Bucks are 15-12. They’re fifth in the Eastern Conference and a half game behind the Indiana Pacers for first place in the Central Division. Beno Udrih is healthy again and Tobias Harris is probable for tonight’s game against the Miami Heat. In the [...]

ShareThe Milwaukee Bucks sure are strange. Just when you think that the team is incredibly average, they go to Boston and beat the Celtics for the third time this season with Larry Sanders playing better than Kevin Garnett and Drew Gooden receiving a DNP-CD. This dunk happened. It was great. Now, it’s possible that the [...]

ShareWoooo! An undefeated week of Milwaukee Bucks basketball! Sure, the team had some problems and they weren’t exactly playing title contenders, but they won and won and won and won. And that’s a good thing. Tonight’s game against the Los Angeles Clippers will be a huge test for the team and hopefully they handle it well. Here’s [...]
