Share I still can’t believe the Milwaukee Bucks and Los Angeles Lakers played on New Year’s Eve, at 9:30 (CST). That was crazy, right? I’m not going to lie, I caught maybe three minutes of that game, non-consecutively. Cool for the Bucks that they won, but I hope that’s the last time Milwaukee plays on [...]

If the Bucks are ever going to get a star, he’ll probably have to be a problem. BRING ME DEMARCUS COUSINS.
ShareLast week, DeMarcus Cousins brought the ruckus. Again. He was suspended by the Sacramento Kings after reportedly getting into a heated exchange with Kings head coach Keith Smart in the locker room during half time of Sacramento’s loss to the Los Angeles Clippers. It was the third time this season the ill-tempered Cousins was suspended. [...]
ShareWhen Luc Richard Mbah a Moute was drafted by the Milwaukee Bucks in 2008, he joined an organization that had recently undergone an overhaul. The John Hammond/Scott Skiles era had begun. Ramon Sessions, Michael Redd, Richard Jefferson, Charlie Villaneuva and Andrew Bogut were ready to show the league that defense truly didn’t matter. Unfortunately, that [...]
Share(We’re counting down the best 20 Bucks since 1991 over the next few weeks. It’s something to do with the lockout sucking the life out of NBA fans. We continue with number 14. Richard Jefferson. Another in a long line of players with one successful season (though many other had a few crappy ones too), [...]
Share Enemy: 48 Minutes of Hell Point Guard Keyon Dooling vs. Tony Parker It seems like none of the Spurs ever slow down. Parker is again hitting better than 50% of his shots from the field this season, an incredible number for the average point guard, but typical for Parker, who once led the league [...]
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 [...]
ShareSan Antonio Spurs (Greg Popovich) 15-11 (Probable) Inactives: Matt Bonner, Michael Finley and Marcus Haislip at Milwaukee Bucks (Scott Skiles) 12-15 (Probable) Inactives: Joe Alexander, Dan Gadzuric and Roko Ukic Date: 12/26/2009 Time: 7:30 (CST) TV: FS Wisconsin Match-Ups Point Guard Brandon Jennings vs. Tony Parker Parker has made a career out of blowing by [...]
I’d almost expect Kurt Thomas to get the start in this one after how well he played on Saturday. Thomas and Gadzuric seem likely to exchange starting roles based on who the Bucks are playing in Andrew Bogut’s absence. Thomas knows the Spurs well, having spent the last year and a half in San Antonio. I’d go as far as to suspect he’ll be spending the majority of the evening as the Bucks primary defender on Tim Duncan. His veteran know-how and strong base are a better fit on Duncan than Ilyasova’s annoyance.
ShareIt’s easy to slam the Bucks past off-season. Richard Jefferson was a big name, possibly a bigger name than Michael Redd. Jefferson led the Bucks in virtually every important offensive category last season. Jefferson has loads of playoff experience, a tendency to get to the free throw line and convert and as much athleticism as [...]
