Share When Luc Richard Mbah a Moute was drafted by the Milwaukee Bucks in 2008, he joined an organization that had recently undergone an overhaul. The John Hammond/Scott Skiles era had begun. Ramon Sessions, Michael Redd, Richard Jefferson, Charlie Villaneuva and Andrew Bogut were ready to show the league that defense truly didn’t matter. Unfortunately, [...]

The Best of a Bad Situation: 15. Charlie Villanueva

Share(We’re counting down the best 20 Bucks since 1991 over the next few weeks. It’s something to do with the lockout sucking the life out of NBA fans. We continue with number 15. Charlie Villanueva. Often frustrating but occasionally scintillating, Villanueva was an easy scapegoat on poorly constructed teams. But he had some nice moments.  – [...]

A Bucks tradition unlike any other

A Bucks tradition unlike any other

ShareI was out of town this past weekend, so I didn’t catch Friday night’s Bucks-Pistons game or Saturday night’s Bucks-Cavs game.  Even when I’m away, I try and keep an eye and a half on the game, just in case something major happens.  I hate missing games entirely, especially home games.  There’s always that chance [...]

What better way to get the bad taste of an opening night loss out of the collective mouths of Milwaukee Bucks fans than the home opener on the following night. I’m not going to pick the Bucks every game, but I feel better about this one than I did about the Sixers game. With Rip Hamilton out, the Pistons bench is a bit depleted of perimeter scoring. If the Bucks can knock down their shots and Jennings can give the Bucks something close to what he did Friday, they’ll have a shot.

ShareIt’s easy to slam the Bucks past off-season. Richard Jefferson was a big name, possibly a bigger name than Michael Redd.  Jefferson led the Bucks in virtually every important offensive category last season.  Jefferson has loads of playoff experience, a tendency to get to the free throw line and convert and as much athleticism as [...]
