ShareOh, what a tease.

Recent gruesome losses featuring very [...]

ShareRecap/Box Score/Enemy John Salmons isn’t a very emotional basketball player.  You’ll hardly ever see him crack a smile on the court and when he’s vehemently protesting a call, as he sometimes does, it’s only when he swears he was fouled.  This side of Salmons carries over into the locker room before and after games as [...]

ShareRecap/Box Score/Enemy When glancing at the final box score from the Milwaukee Bucks 110-95 victory over the New Jersey Nets Friday night, it’s easy to be deceived.  Seeing a typically punchless offensive team like the Bucks suddenly put up 110 points on 56.8% shooting is strange.  Seeing Brandon Jennings tally 10 assists isn’t a common [...]

Share Enemy: Hoopinion Point Guard Brandon Jennings vs. Kirk Hinrich Jennings has taken some positive steps forward in March after a brutal February in which he was returning from foot surgery.  He’s been better from the field overall and has seen his three-point shooting trend upwards over the past few games.  If he can make [...]
