I don’t really have strong feelings either way, but mostly I’m just glad he’s being introduced on September 5 instead of [...]

ShareThe defensive identity of the Milwaukee Bucks was supposed to die when Andrew Bogut left and Monta Ellis arrived. A high-tempo offense led by Ellis and Brandon Jennings was supposed to be the identity of the Bucks for the foreseeable future. Last season, that idea looked viable. The Bucks were an above average offense that [...]

ShareEnemy: By the Horns Point Guard Keyon Dooling vs. Derrick Rose Rose has been something of a monster this year.  He’s visibly improved in every aspect of the game, from defense to 3-point shooting to passing.  He’s looking every bit like a former number one pick and is a safe bet to wreak all kinds [...]

ShareI’ve seen a few things this pre-season I didn’t expect.  Most of them involve how well John Wall played when Milwaukee squared off against Washington, but some have actually involved the Bucks.  The re-appearance of Brian Skinner is on that list, as is Tiny Gallon’s inability to outlast Chris Kramer for a spot in Bucks [...]

ShareSalary returning for Milwaukee: $56,068,163 (Kudos to ShamSports.com for the numbers) Salary Cap: $58-60 million Luxury Tax Level: Between $70-75 million (Probably at least.

Share Isn’t it funny how a matter of moments can alter the perception of one shot? Along with many others that joined me on Wednesday evening’s Daily Dime Live, I thought Josh Smith had finished off the Bucks with just over four minutes to go Wednesday night.  Smith faded a little bit from the top [...]

Share Check out the reaction by the Bucks bench. Priceless. If it hadn’t been done before, and it’s probably foolish that it wasn’t, the word “can’t” was officially removed from the dictionary on the Milwaukee Bucks 2009-10 season. It’s uses were once prevalent. Milwaukee can’t get to the line. They can’t score inside without Andrew [...]
