Despite laughable playoff exit, Bucks have a bright future

The Milwaukee Bucks failing, while making a complete spectacle of themselves in the process, might seem like a big deal. It isn’t. Trust me. Sure, no team in any sport would like to be nearly doubled up (120-66) in a season-ending Game 6 loss, but sometimes the story of a series isn’t the singular embarrassment of a poor performance in an elimination game. Sometimes, the story...

WATCH: Giannis Antetokounmpo Deservedly Tackle Mike Dunleavy

If you didn’t watch the Bulls vs. Bucks game last night, you missed one crazy series of events. Not because the game was close or anything (Bulls won 120-66), but because it turned into a brawl of awesome proportions. After a couple of dirty cheap shots from Dukie Mike Dunleavy (more on them below) Giannis Antetokounmpo flat out tackled the white boy and was ejected from the...

Watch: Giannis Antetokounmpo tackled Mike Dunleavy

This is one of those plays that harkens back to playground basketball. On one end of the court you feel you’ve been wrong by another player (Dunleavy pushes Giannis to the ground) and then you get up and sprint down to the other end of the court ready to block the other guys shot off the blacktop. But instead of blocking his shot, Giannis turned into Bobby Boucher and straight...

Bucks’ recent surge fueled by strong defensive play

Head coach Jason Kidd’s team has given up just 89.0 points per game over the last two games.

Bucks’ Mayo’s flop is legendary

This flop is epic! Bucks’ OJ Mayo showed the universe how a flop is supposed to be executed against the Bulls. In one motion, Mayo acted like he got hit by a moving car, contorted backwards in an aggressive fashion, “gracefully” collapsed to the court and sold it to the refs. Check out this thing of beauty!

Milwaukee Bucks: Do We Fear the Deer Next Year?

As thrilling as Game Four was between Chicago and Milwaukee Saturday night, I highly doubt that the Milwaukee Bucks will defeat their division rival Chicago Bulls in this best-of-seven series.  While both teams have their roots in strong defensive play, the Bulls offense is just better than the Bucks.  Outside of my hometown Atlanta Hawks’ series...

The good news is: things in Milwaukee are looking up. This year, the Bucks improved by a staggering 26 wins over last season’s league-worst record.
