Bucks’ Offense Reaches A Historically Low Point

When I switched on NBATV earlier this evening and saw the the Milwaukee Bucks were down 39-66 to the Boston Celtics, I wasn’t the least bit surprised. It’s hard to be shocked when a team as offensively inept doesn’t score the ball, especially against one of the better defensive teams in the league like [...]

Anthony Struggles In Knicks Debut But Comes Through Late

For people like myself that thought the Carmelo Anthony-Amare Stoudemire pairing would be an awkward one with many bumps in the road, the first half of last night’s game between the New York Knicks and Milwaukee Bucks provided plenty of fodder. Anthony was isolating far too often, he was forcing things at the basket [...]

DeRozan To Replace Jennings In Dunk Contest

The questionable decision to include Brandon Jennings in the dunk contest this season is no longer an issue and my plea for DeMar DeRozan to get a second chance after being robbed of the trophy last year has worked. Yesterday, Jennings pulled out of the dunk contest because of his still injured foot and [...]

2010-2011 NBA Season Previews: Milwaukee Bucks

The Milwaukee Bucks surprised everybody last season. For a team that won 34 games in 2008-2009 and then subsequently lost three of their top four scorers (Richard Jefferson, Charlie Villanueava and Ramon Sessions), making the playoffs was a pipe dream. Add in the fact that Michael Redd went down for the season after just [...]

Attacking The Boards: Where The Thunder Look Young And Old At The Same Time

With 25 seconds left in the game, Kevin Durant stepped to the free throw line looking to ice the game away for the Oklahoma City Thunder. As the ball was tossed to him by the ref, Durant heard chants of “M-V-P” come down from the rafters. He couldn’t help but crack a smile.

And [...]

Did The Bucks “Win” The Mo Williams Deal?

In August of 2008, the Cleveland Cavalier, the Milwaukee Bucks and the Oklahoma City Thunder agreed on a three-team deal that centered around then Bucks point guard Mo Williams going to Cleveland.

Finally, Cleveland had nabbed a scorer capable of complementing LeBron James with alright passing skills and, most importantly, excellent scoring ability from [...]

Brandon Jennings Gives Doubters A Huge Slap In The Face

To start this article off, let’s revisit my column from July 13th to get a little perspective on Milwaukee Bucks point guard Brandon Jennings.

There were a lot of doubts about Brandon Jennings on Draft Night. Some said he was too childish for the NBA while others said he had the highest ceiling in [...]

Attacking the Boards: Agent Zero Is Back, Philly Survives A Close One, and Trevor Ariza Gets The Last Laugh On Brandon Roy

If Gilbert Arenas can score like he did tonight without losing the concept of team play, there is no telling what this Washington team can do. Agent Zero had 32 points (9-of-13 shooting, 3-of-4 from three) and seven assists to lead Washington to pretty nice win over the Nets in their home opener. Arenas [...]

NBA Summer League: Another Warrior Goes Off

Two days ago Golden State Warriors power forward Anthony Randolph tied the Summer League scoring record with a 42 point output. Yesterday, Warriors guard Anthony Morrow broke the scoring record with a 47 point performance. He got his points in a variety of ways, shooting 18-of-26 from the field while sinking 7 of his [...]
