Share A 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, [...]

ShareThe journey from second round obscurity to starting lineup spotlight isn’t an easy one. It’s rarely made. It’s even rarer that it’s sustained for an extensive amount of time. In a way, Khris Middleton has already won. He rose from injured college player and lightly regarded second round pick to NBA starter in just two [...]

As he’s initiated into the NBA, Nate Wolters is tasked with initiating the Bucks offense

ShareNate Wolters doesn’t have the speed to blow by defenders.  He doesn’t have the athleticism needed to finish at the rim against NBA-level defenders. He doesn’t catch anyone’s eye as a lockdown defender. He honed his skills for four years in the basketball hotbed of Brookings, South Dakota. His jump shot (and this is an [...]

ShareDespite a fun campaign worthy of his very strong season, Larry Sanders was not voted the NBA’s Most Improved player for the 2012-13 season. He lost out on one of the two awards many were pushing for him to get serious consideration for to another member of his draft class, Indiana Pacers forward Paul George. [...]
