Bucks’ latest workout features Quincy Miller, sharpshooting, and Bucksession

Share Ho hum, just another Bucks’ workout featuring relatively unknown guards and forwards that could be taken in the second… Wait.  Hold on.  Is that Baylor forward Quincy Miller’s name I see on that list?  It is.  Hm, he’s a late first-round projected draft pick in nearly every mock draft.  Could the Bucks be considering [...]

Bucks will draft 12th – Could Perry Jones III be on the way?

| May 31, 2012 | 22 Replies

ShareThe lottery has been decided. The Milwaukee Bucks will pick 12th, which was 97% likely, so no one should be surprised. In general, yesterday was miserably disappointing and predictable. I told myself I wouldn’t even watch the envelopes on display. Why bother? Math told me nothing exciting would happen, especially when it came to the [...]

Most likely to improve enough to make life difficult for the Bucks: Brandon Jennings

Most likely to improve enough to make life difficult for the Bucks: Brandon Jennings

| May 14, 2012 | 5 Replies

ShareBrandon Jennings hit the modest individual shooting goal he laid out for himself before the 2011-12 season. In fact, were it not for a miserable month of February that seemed to be the perfect storm of attitude and inaccuracy, Jennings would have blown past the 40% shooting mark with ease. After shooting better than 44% [...]

ShareContrary to rumors and what appeared most logical, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported yesterday that, according to Scott Skiles, Scott Skiles will return for the Milwaukee Bucks 2012-13 season as head coach. The previous scuttlebutt was that Skiles would explore a buyout and move on. But after meeting with Herb Kohl and John Hammond, it appears [...]

The Bucks are running and Monta Ellis & Ekpe Udoh can help

Share“Since Andrew has been out, we have been playing a more up-tempo pace, a faster style of play,” John Hammond said when addressing reporters to introduce Monta Ellis and Ekpe Udoh. “Obviously you add Monta to that. The other part of running though is you can’t run without the ball. I think Ekpe is going [...]

No matter how bad you want them to the Bucks cannot blow things up

No matter how bad you want them to the Bucks cannot blow things up

ShareI’ve been beating the rebuild drum for quite a while. I’ve watched Oklahoma City and more recently, the Minnesota Timberwolves, load themselves up with talented young players. I’ve seen them flounder and flourish. I’ve also seen the risks. The Washington Wizards present the flip side of the destroy and rebuild plan. Sure, they landed John [...]

The Best of a Bad Situation: 14. Richard Jefferson

| September 9, 2011 | 3 Replies

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 14. Richard Jefferson. Another in a long line of players with one successful season (though many other had a few crappy ones too), [...]

ShareRemember when we were all so certain about who the Milwaukee Bucks would draft on Thursday? No, we didn’t have it down exactly, but there were three or four names we felt good about. Even after they moved down, there was still two or three guys we figured were a lock. The scuttlebutt had been [...]

ShareThe Klay Thompson Bandwagon appears to have picked up some steam in Milwaukee yesterday. A new mock draft projection, glowing articles about how he compares to an NBA Hall of Famer and plenty of positive quotes about his workout in Milwaukee. That’s the upside of working out with a team, having the right information leak [...]
