Zaza Pachulia: No One is Coolia

Zaza Pachulia: No One is Coolia

Share Where he’s been: One bright spot for last season was the randomly great Zaza Pachulia stretch in the first two weeks of the season. Larry Sanders was out because of a torn thumb ligament suffered in a nightclub altercation that was clearly instigated by goons hired by cartoon supervillain Dan Gilbert. Pachulia stepped in [...]

Watching for the Comeback: O.J. Mayo

ShareWhere he’s been: In what’s worryingly becoming a trend, I’m looking at another Buck who had a disappointing ’13-14 season. He looked like, you know, the guy the Bucks thought they were getting with that $24 million free agent deal!… for the first handful of games, at least. Then he got dinged up. Then came [...]

Walking the walk: Larry Sanders

Walking the walk: Larry Sanders

| October 9, 2014 | 4 Replies

ShareWhere he’s been: Everywhere but the basketball court, it seems. From bar brawls to broken faces to poorly timed marijuana lobbying, Sanders managed to make waves everywhere except on the basketball court in 2013-14. This after a promising breakout season that showcased him as a defensive game changer and earned him a hefty $44 million contract [...]

Beware the Traveler: Jerryd Bayless

| October 7, 2014 | 4 Replies

ShareWhere he’s been: Traded four times in six seasons, Jerryd Bayless has seen himself on teams that mirror where the Bucks are (2013-14  Boston Celtics) and on teams that the Bucks want to be(2012-13 Memphis Grizzlies). And he’s been on the teams in between (2008-10 Portland Trailblazers). He carried himself well in every situation. “I [...]

Starting to play pretty well: Larry Sanders

Starting to play pretty well: Larry Sanders

| February 6, 2014 | 3 Replies

ShareEarly 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 season. [...]

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 [...]

Giannis Antetokounmpo is carving out a role as the Bucks continue to struggle

| December 20, 2013 | 4 Replies

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 [...]
