Share You thought you’d heard the last of Jerry Stackhouse as an NBA player, didn’t you? You thought injuries and age had robbed him of the athleticism once deemed necessary for him to be relevant as a player. If you didn’t, you’re much more plugged in than I, because I certainly did. But no, Jerry [...]

ShareIt’s hard to even be concerned about a loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on the road. That talent disparity is too great and the road troubles too significant for the current version of the Milwaukee Bucks. But it isn’t hard to be concerned about another knee injury to Michael Redd. Either on his jump [...]
ShareRecaps/Box Score The most bizarre thing about the second half for the Bucks was that it took so long to happen. I mean, we all know Michael Redd has been playing for appearances sake and with the hope that he’ll magically find his game and improve his trade value. He certainly hasn’t been playing because [...]
ShareRecap/Box Score (Note: Sorry about the lack of a game preview and slow to arrive recap of the Kings game. It’s the holidays, friends are in town, things are going on, I’ll try to see to it that this doesn’t happen again. The Kings game was the first game I was unable to make it [...]
To be fair this was almost like shooting fish in a barrel. Chris Duhon has not successfully converted on a field goal in his last nearly 70 minutes on the court. That’s three games! This is the Knicks starting point guard!
While it’s encouraging that the Bucks put some room between themselves and the true bottom feeders of the NBA by picking up the win, it’s still concerning that they’ve yet to put anything close to a full game together. Against the Pistons they used a similar strong third quarter to set themselves up for a win after a poor start. In Chicago, the Bucks came out hot and had an 18 point lead early in the third quarter before wilting down the stretch and blowing a great opportunity. If the Bucks hope to battle for that eighth seed this season, they’ll need to string together four quarters at a time rather than just one or two. Against Minnesota, two quarters will do. Against the Bulls or the Heat or the Hawks? It’s not the recipe for success.
I noted in a post last week that it was my season preview. That was kind of a lie. It wasn’t a total lie, it was more of a partial lie. That was my philosophical preview of where the Bucks sit as a franchise right now. I’ve actually been crafting my season preview with a certain set of guidelines. The guidelines follow and this is my ACTUAL season preview that will appear in the TrueHoop Network’s NBA Preview Magazine.
