Share The theme of this Milwaukee Bucks off season has been old faces and second round draft picks. So the three team deal Milwaukee participated in officially on Thursday night fits in just fine. Per the Bucks PR Department: The Milwaukee Bucks have acquired veteran guard Luke Ridnour (6-2, 175) as part of a three-team [...]

Share This guy could be a problem. UPDATE: Drew Gooden has been suspended for tonight’s game due to Monday’s flagrant foul, according to Sam Amick. This could result in more minutes for either Jon Leuer or some minutes for Jon Brockman. After dropping their opener Monday night, the Milwaukee Bucks are back at it 7:30 [...]
ShareWith the number 10 pick in the TrueHoop Network Mock Draft, I’m predicting the Milwaukee Bucks will select Alec Burks, the athletic shooting guard out of Colorado. Hopefully the Milwaukee Bucks can safely arrive at the same place I have come Thursday or at least arrive in the same general area. Klay Thompson, Jordan Hamilton, [...]
ShareRecap/Box Score/Enemy Over the years, the NBA trade deadline has been blamed for a lot of bad basketball. A great example of this phenomenon came roughly a year ago, right here in Milwaukee. At that point, the Bucks hadn’t started that second half surge that birthed the Fear the Dear mantra. They wouldn’t acquire John [...]
ShareRecap/Box Score This is the kind of game people have been longing for from Brandon Jennings for some time. I’ve been swearing that Jennings has been playing well the last few games, but haven’t had much data to back up me when pleading my case to anyone who hasn’t watched the games. They’ve been looking [...]
While it’s encouraging that the Bucks put some room between themselves and the true bottom feeders of the NBA by picking up the win, it’s still concerning that they’ve yet to put anything close to a full game together. Against the Pistons they used a similar strong third quarter to set themselves up for a win after a poor start. In Chicago, the Bucks came out hot and had an 18 point lead early in the third quarter before wilting down the stretch and blowing a great opportunity. If the Bucks hope to battle for that eighth seed this season, they’ll need to string together four quarters at a time rather than just one or two. Against Minnesota, two quarters will do. Against the Bulls or the Heat or the Hawks? It’s not the recipe for success.
But you know what really drives me crazy when I compare Gomes and Delfino? Gomes has virtually the same three point shooting percentage as Delfino and a considerably higher overall shooting percentage. Why are we considering Delfino a good shooter? Because he’s A. foreign and B. otherwise largely untalented. The Amir Johnson for Delfino and Roko Ukic trade is beginning to drive me insane.
