Starting to play pretty well: Larry Sanders

Starting to play pretty well: Larry Sanders

| February 6, 2014 | 3 Replies

Share Early 2013-14 season Larry Sanders was no fun. The ! seemed gone from his game, if not from his temper. He followed a blah, but not too troubling (because it was only exhibition) pre-season by failing to play well enough to be in near the end of games through four games in the regular [...]

ShareIf I may, let me start this little exercise with a caveat: By and large, the players in the NBA are among the top 500 basketball players on Earth. Not only am I not among the top 500 basketball players on Earth, but I am not among the top 500 basketball writers nor am I [...]

ShareThe 2013-14 Bucks’ season reeks of an air of mangled feet and failure. Zaza Pachulia and Carlos Delfino are both sidelined with broken feet. Gary Neal and Ersan Ilyasova flounder about while nobly trying to play through plantar fasciitis and a sprained ankle respectively. Vets Caron Butler and Luke Ridnour, a pair of free agents-to-be, [...]

ShareThings were getting a little dicey for Nate Wolters as he moved toward his second month of employment in the NBA.  First, teammate and fellow point guard Luke Ridnour returned from injury, then so did Brandon Knight. After averaging 30.8 minutes per game in his first ten games with the Milwaukee Bucks, Wolters saw his [...]

ShareIn short,  Giannis Antetokounmpo alternates between making the plays that no NBA player should make and making the plays that no NBA player can make. It’s the latter that has people that run inside NBA circles talking. I promise you, no NBA player this preseason is generating more buzz than Giannis Antetokounmpo. If any player needed a nickname, it’s him. [...]

ShareAre we having fun yet?! The Milwaukee Bucks selected Giannis Antetokounmpo with the 15th pick in last night’s NBA Draft. Antetokounmpo, a 6-9 forward from Nigeria via Greece, is unquestionably the biggest risk in the draft. He’s 18-years-old, has never played at a level of basketball close to the NBA, and his arms are skinnier than [...]

ShareI’m not sure we’ll ever know what happened with Brandon Jennings in early February last season. Milwaukee’s premiere guard was cruising along through the first third of the lockout shortened 2011-12 season. Despite a road heavy early season schedule, Jennings was producing at a level far better than he had in his first two seasons. [...]
