They first met with Kidd the day after the NBA Draft in New York and have quietly been working on a [...]

ShareThe unfamiliarity seemed to be what had the Milwaukee Bucks three (two of them kept) second round picks landing with a bit of a thud in the minds of many Bucks fans on draft night. But simply because we’re not that familiar with a player, does not mean that player is not worthwhile. And after [...]

ShareThe second floor of the Milwaukee Public Market had reached its maximum public capacity. There was a man at the steps leading to its second level that informed me they wouldn’t allow anyone else up unless I was in the media or with the Milwaukee Bucks. I got lucky.
