Share There’s something that’s been lost in the sea of hoopla that surrounded Jason Kidd’s dramatic arrival in Milwaukee. For years, Milwaukee Bucks fans have complained about a lack of explosive, athletic wing talent with potential. Before last season, was there really a prospect Milwaukee had at the two or the three to be all that optimistic [...]

ShareThe second floor of the Milwaukee Public Market had reached its maximum public capacity. There was a man at the steps leading to its second level that informed me they wouldn’t allow anyone else up unless I was in the media or with the Milwaukee Bucks. I got lucky. It wasn’t quite 11:00 AM, when [...]

With that in mind, NBA.com’s Rick Braun went out in search of answers as to why Kareem’s most potent weapon has yet to be picked up by another center. – Jeremy [...]

Why doesn’t John Henson play more?

Why doesn’t John Henson play more?

ShareA 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, so [...]

The evolution of Khris Middleton has yet to begin

The evolution of Khris Middleton has yet to begin

| February 13, 2014 | 8 Replies

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 [...]

John Henson and the Milwaukee Bucks commitment to the post-up

ShareWhere virtually everyone else on the roster of the Milwaukee Bucks has failed, John Henson has succeeded. Opportunities have been readily available for the likes of Brandon Knight, Ersan Ilyasova, OJ Mayo and everyone else looking to either establish an NBA career or move that career in a new direction, yet, the Khris Middleton success story aside, each of [...]

| December 5, 2013 | 12 Replies

ShareEvery game, he shows some impressive flashes. Giannis Antetokounmpo drew some headlines nationally after an impressive chase down block followed up by a dunk within ten seconds and 13 steps. Wednesday night against the Detroit Pistons he had a longer stretch that wasn’t quite as flashy, but equally difficult and impressive. Early in the fourth [...]

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

| November 5, 2013 | 22 Replies

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 [...]

Unrealized and unrealistic expectations: Brandon Jennings is gone

Unrealized and unrealistic expectations: Brandon Jennings is gone

| July 31, 2013 | 83 Replies

ShareBrandon Jennings really couldn’t have arrived in Milwaukee at a better or worse time. He was very good immediately. Too good. Jennings was a superstar for his first 11 games in Milwaukee, there’s really no other way to phrase it. But 11 games is just enough time to be dangerous in a city with the [...]
