Glenn Robinson returns: Bucks – Pacers Preview

Share Will Glenn Robinson and Coolio be at this game? Obviously. It’s Y2K night, which feels a lot more like 90s night, but that’s okay. Whatever it takes to get everyone reminiscing about Glenn Robinson. The oft-criticized, now fondly remembered shooting forward from the very good but not quite great Bucks teams of the late [...]

ShareErsan Ilyasova is a fantastic rebounder, one of the best in the league at drawing charges and was able to consistently make 3-point shots last season. That’s why he is so good. Other searches since this last time we played this game. - is calling someone a pessimist offensive (NO! WHAT ARE YOU GETTING AT!?) - are [...]

ShareI never appreciated Glenn Robinson when he was around. What can I say? I was young and in love. With Ray Allen’s jumper. In fact, you could say that I loathed Robinson. Not all the time, just sometimes. Definitely after game 5 against the Sixers when he missed a 10 foot baseline jumper to win. [...]

Share(Glenn Robinson has a cooler nickname than any Milwaukee Bucks player since Sidney Moncrief, even if he stole Big Dog from Antoine Carr. Of course, I’d never lead an article about Sidney Moncrief referring to his nickname (though I would lead a Carr article in that way). That says something about Robinson. A perpetual disappointment, [...]

Share(I don’t really need to sell you on Sam Cassell. He was something of a vagabond in the NBA, though not necessarily by his choice. He played for eight teams over 15 seasons, but if ever Cassell had an NBA home, it was in Milwaukee. He was the point guard on the best Bucks team of the [...]

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 7. Ervin Johnson. Quite simply, EJ was the Bucks defense from 1997-2002. Everyone else just existed on that end of the court. Johnson [...]

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 8. Tim Thomas. Thomas is that rare player who perennially underachieved, but got better in the playoffs. In the sense that he didn’t care much [...]

Facts and Figures about the Bucks, Free throws and Corey Maggette

| October 25, 2010 | 1 Reply

ShareIf you hadn’t heard before, by now you likely have: Corey Maggette can get to the free throw line. It’s why he was brought to Milwaukee and why he’ll likely be used in heavy doses all year long. At least until he breaks down from the heavy contact he’s sure to encounter repeatedly every game. [...]
