Share Larry Sanders Trouble on/off court tried the patience of many. Enjoys Instagram. Inconsistency is often the hallmark of a bad season for a basketball player, but it’s hard to say Sanders was inconsistent this season. He was injured in the exhibition season. He was injured throughout most of November, December, February, March and April. [...]

Why doesn’t John Henson play more?

ShareA text came through my phone around 9 PM Wednesday night: Henson might be softer than Drake Topical. A friend of mine was at the Milwaukee Bucks – Indiana Pacers game and she had seen enough out of John Henson. To be fair, she’s probably attended more games than any other friend of mine, so [...]

ShareAfter a recent Milwaukee Bucks-Los Angeles Clippers game, I chatted with a couple of the folks from ClipperBlog that I got to know last summer at the Las Vegas Summer League, Andrew Han and Seerat Sohi. One of the centerpieces to our Vegas friendship was John Henson, Milwaukee’s second year power forward/center who made something [...]

The evolution of Khris Middleton has yet to begin

ShareThe journey from second round obscurity to starting lineup spotlight isn’t an easy one. It’s rarely made. It’s even rarer that it’s sustained for an extensive amount of time. In a way, Khris Middleton has already won. He rose from injured college player and lightly regarded second round pick to NBA starter in just two [...]

ShareIt’s 5:30 AM on Saturday morning. The sun won’t be up for another hour and a half in Milwaukee. I’m sitting at a desk next to a window that doubles as an air conditioner in the winter. When I glance outside I see cars that haven’t been moved in days in the parking lot outside [...]

Starting to play pretty well: Larry Sanders

Starting to play pretty well: Larry Sanders

| February 6, 2014 | 3 Replies

ShareEarly 2013-14 season Larry Sanders was no fun. The ! seemed gone from his game, if not from his temper. He followed a blah, but not too troubling (because it was only exhibition) pre-season by failing to play well enough to be in near the end of games through four games in the regular season. [...]

ShareLarry Drew has a problem. He’s trapped in a never ending cycle of effortless losses during which his team trailed by at least 20 points and he can’t figure out how to get out.  Every night, after each loss, the next more crushing and demoralizing than the last, he has to answer the same questions from what may [...]
