There were multiple parties in the city of Milwaukee dedicated to the thing they like that typically no one cares about. Judging from the photos, videos [...]

Now rebuilding, the Bucks have a pigeonhole problem as the trade deadline approaches

ShareOf all the notions of advanced mathematics, one of the easiest to grasp is the Pigeonhole Principle: If n pigeons are placed into m pigeonholes with and n is a number greater than m, then at least one pigeonhole must contain more than one pigeon.

But let’s be honest, there is something more pressing to discuss in Milwaukee these days: Giannis Antetokounmpo! Get Hammond’s thoughts on the [...]

A new Milwaukee Bucks season, with the same Milwaukee Bucks goals

A new Milwaukee Bucks season, with the same Milwaukee Bucks goals

ShareFrom the players’ faces to the general atmosphere, Bucks Media Day was hardly recognizable from last year. Gone were the questions of whether a team could win with two undersized, high-usage guards and whether a team could stay together given the lame-duck statuses of its players, coaching staff and general manager. Instead, those were replaced [...]

ShareBrandon Jennings really couldn’t have arrived in Milwaukee at a better or worse time. He was very good immediately. Too good. Jennings was a superstar for his first 11 games in Milwaukee, there’s really no other way to phrase it. But 11 games is just enough time to be dangerous in a city with the [...]

ShareThere is no indication that the Milwaukee Bucks had at any point since this off season began made a conscious decision to tank in 2013-14. It’s not the team’s way. Milwaukee wants to be competitive. Wants to make the playoffs and wants to get better every season. The lure of the 2014 draft class is [...]

ShareIf you didn’t know this post was coming, you know nothing about this site. After a rough couple of years, I’ve been waiting for something to get behind. I hoped for this on Thursday morning and I’m thrilled at this point. Time after time we’ve all criticized the Bucks for worrying too much about right [...]
