Miroslav Raduljica isn’t helpless

Share “We weren’t helpless. We’ve got big bodies too.” When looking at Miroslav Raduljica, helpless is the last word that comes to mind. But he just wanted to make sure we all know that the Milwaukee Bucks have big guys that are NBA players too. ‘Slav addressed the media after Milwaukee’s 104-101 win over the [...]

ShareIt’s been a difficult season for the Milwaukee Bucks rotation. Through 10 games, Larry Drew has used eight different starting lineups. If you looked at the Bucks injury report in the past week, you could have seen as many as eight guys listed as anywhere between “day-to-day” and “out”. Milwaukee hasn’t had its full compliment of [...]

ShareIn a bit of a surprise that probably isn’t that surprising if you’ve been paying attention this preseason, but is still fairly surprising since few people value what actually happens in preseason all that much … Khris Middleton will start for the Milwaukee Bucks in their season opener tonight against the New York Knicks. Middleton [...]

ShareWe’ve spent most of the last week talking about the sign-and-trade deal that sent Brandon Jennings to Detroit and brought Brandon Knight over to the Bucks. But, as it turns out, a pair of other players came back from Detroit as well. We had an in-depth analysis of Slava Kravtsov planned to provide the most up-to-date coverage on the New Bucks, [...]

ShareFor starters, let me say that I like what John Hammond has done this offseason.  He didn’t bring back any huge mistake players.  He didn’t take on too much long-term salary.  He hasn’t succeeded — there still isn’t much talent on the roster — so much as he hasn’t failed yet. But I still get [...]

ShareAn off-season spent unable to workout. Absences in both training camp and the early part of the regular season. Turf toe in March. A virus that’s left him hampered. Career low numbers in shooting percentage, free throw percentage, minutes per game, rebounds per game and pretty much everything else. It’s been a tough  year for [...]

Hope, Henson and the struggle to balance minutes in Milwaukee

ShareI don’t live far from the BMO Harris Bradley Center. Thus, I walk to games. In the winter, the walk ranges from annoying to nearly unbearable, depending on wind, snow and slush. I hate slush. With snow you get the possibilities of sledding or snowboarding or skiing, whatever you’re into. At the very least, there’s [...]

Unwilling or unable: Milwaukee’s defensive issues

Unwilling or unable: Milwaukee’s defensive issues

| March 25, 2013 | 16 Replies

ShareI’ve had a weird problem when dishing out grades to Milwaukee Bucks players after games recently. Over and over, guys are tossing out some pretty solid lines. For a guy like Brandon Jennings, outside of his last two games, he’s been shooting better than 40% regularly and handing out more than 10 assists very often. [...]

ShareI have a strategy I carry out every time I step on the basketball court. It’s been crafted over the years, it’s absolutely intentional and it’s what makes me capable of functioning as well as I do, which, admittedly, isn’t even always very good. But I stick with it. If I start a game, I [...]
