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.

We didn’t want to stop after six [...]

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! [...]

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.

ShareLast week I said that the Milwaukee Bucks were a frustrating and confusing team to watch. Guess what? They still are! This week included a hard fought win against the Rondo-less Celtics and blowout losses to the New Orleans Pelicans (might as well start getting used to it) and the San Antonio Spurs. The Bucks [...]
