Share Now that the pre-season has wrapped up with another loss, 119-118 in overtime to Minnesota, naturally it would seem like the Bucks have taken some steps towards figuring out a lot about who they are and what kind of team they’ll be this season.  Eight games should be ample time to figure out an [...]

ShareBox Score / Recap First things first: the Bucks beat the Bulls to open the pre-season Tuesday night, 92-83. Good, that’s out of the way.  Now we move on. I can’t stress the importance of not blowing things out of proportion after one pre-season game.  Part of me feels like I shouldn’t even be posting [...]

ShareWe’ve all at one time or another picked out a role player that appealed to us for one reason or another and made him “our guy.”  Perhaps we like the sweet stroke of a three-point specialist.  Often times it’s that flashy, athletic dunker who can’t get more than 20 minutes-per-game, but certainly packs a lot [...]

ShareSo what’s the best way for a young player to get better over the summer?  It sure sounds like a good idea for a player to work on individual skills.  During the NBA season there is hardly enough times for teams to get a lot of practice in, let alone time for individual skill development.  [...]

Share(Percentages from the 2009-10 season) Scoring was rarely easy for the Milwaukee Bucks last season.  Long droughts were the norm, zones were horror movie scary and the rim was a foreign place they rarely explored.  The long ball was often the weapon of choice though it wasn’t always reliable.  In the end, it worked often [...]

ShareSince taking over as Milwaukee Bucks general manager on April 11, 2008, John Hammond has shown he’s not afraid to make a deal. I’d go as far as to say he’s probably talking about a trade right now. He’s made more trades in his tenure than I have in the last 10 dynasties I’ve done [...]

ShareIn a seemingly impossible turn of events, it has become even more crowded inside for the Milwaukee Bucks. When Milwaukee left for Vegas Summer League last Sunday, they did so with Darnell Jackson seemingly in line to split the majority of minutes at the power forward position for the week in Vegas. Of course, Jackson [...]

ShareThe Bucks have acquired Sacramento Kings power forward Jon Brockman in a sign-and-trade for Darnell Jackson and a future second-round pick according to Adrian Wojnarowski. Milwaukee’s power forward situation gets no less complicated, as Brockman is better than Jackson, but not a significant upgrade over any of the remaining Bucks forwards. This likely leaves Tiny [...]
