ShareThe much ballyhooed, highly anticipated, totally gripping idea of Giannis Antetokounmpo starting at the point guard position turned out to be … not very interesting. Milwaukee’s positionless, talented sophomore played 23 fairly uninteresting minutes split across a variety of roles in Milwaukee’s 106-100 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers Wednesday night.

Share“Shooters, they let it fly. For him, all great looks.” Jason Kidd had no problems with what Ersan Ilyasova was doing on Saturday night. What Ilyasova was doing, was shooting. He finished Milwaukee’s 91-85 loss to the Chicago Bulls with just four made field goals in 20 attempts. Kidd had no issue with the number of attempts, as he [...]

ShareFirst, the most important thing that happened. Jabari Parker showed off a little bit of what got people so hot and bothered about him early on last season at Duke: That warms and brightens the coldest, darkest soul … which of course is mine.
