New $524M arena has Milwaukee Bucks angling for new fans — in Chicago

As he toured the construction site that will become home to Giannis Antetokounmpo in 2018, the president of the Milwaukee Bucks posed an array of questions. "How do we make the highest seats the most valuable?" Peter Feigin asked. Referring to a sleek "Panorama Club" that aims to attract younger...

Kings 69, Bucks 65: Papagiannis comes to play

Kings 69, Bucks 65: Papagiannis comes to play

The second year big man finally had a breakout game in Summer League. The Kings achieved their first victory in summer league yesterday, beating the Milwaukee Bucks 69 to 65 despite playing without either De’Aaron Fox or Buddy Hield. They even lost Frank Mason III early on in the game as he tweaked his ankle. Fortunately, x-rays for Mason came back negative. The Kings won largely on the backs of their big men, who finally broke out. Skal Labissiere scored a game-high 19 points to go with 9 boards, 3 steals and 2 blocks and Georgios Papagiannis added 17 points, 13 rebounds, 2 assists, 2...

Who Might Make The Leap?

Who Might Make The Leap?

Taking a look at the young guys potentially poised to up their game next year “The Leap.” An oft-mentioned phrase that typically conjures up thoughts of a player finally turning their talent from potential to actualized. Generally it’s also discussed in rather lofty terms, meaning someone like Giannis Antetokounmpo went from entertaining oddity to must watch marvel. The Bucks roster seems relatively bereft of that level of leaper, but there are plenty who could at least take a hop this year. The former statement is problematic to roster construction and been discussed ad nauseum, but...

Giannis Says “I’ll tell you what basketball is” in New Video

Giannis Says “I’ll tell you what basketball is” in New Video

Speaking his native Greek, Giannis breaks down what the sport is to him As has become the norm for emerging sports stars, there’s a new video focused on Giannis Antetokounmpo making its way around the internet today, and for good reason. It is really something. I originally noticed this on the Milwaukee Bucks subreddit this evening. Whenever I have downtime, I’ll take a glance at what’s going on in this space, but the advertisement-turned-motivational-short-film blew me away and is worth your three minutes. The original poster (dante80, who also posted the YouTube video) included...

Giannis and the Ticking Clock

Giannis and the Ticking Clock

Get your hand away from the panic button To say Bucks Twitter the past few weeks have been pessimistic would be an understatement. Besides Malcolm Brogdon winning rookie of the year and Giannis Antetokounpo taking most improved player, it seems all news involving the Bucks has skewed negative. I understand it, the GM search was a trainwreck and the press conference was just a depressing capper on that entire situation. Monroe and Hawes opting in didn't help by placing the team near the luxury tax. Even Tony Snell's deal was met with some backlash, which compared to other players in his...

Looking Ahead: NBA Awards and Team Success (Part 2)

While we bask in the afterglow of Malcolm Brogdon’s Rookie of the Year win and Giannis Antetokounmpo’s designation as the league’s Most Improved Player, let’s set our gaze on the future to see what these awards might mean for the Milwaukee Bucks. We brought up the question about if we thought individual (non-MVP level) awards had any correlation to changes in team success (read: W/L record) in following season. My initial hypothesis: Before doing any research, my initial hypotheses were “not really” for MIP and “almost definitely not” for ROY. Rookies are generally bad (by...

Looking Ahead: NBA Awards and Team Success (Part 1)

Does fielding non-MVP award winners correlate to the team’s performance in following seasons? At the NBA Awards Show on Monday night, two notable Milwaukee Bucks took home some well-deserved hardware. Malcolm Brogdon won the hotly-debated (but pretty obvious, IMO) Rookie of the Year award, while Giannis Antetokounmpo was named the season’s Most Improved Player by a small landslide. We can't wait for 17-18 to tip off!!#FearTheDeer pic.twitter.com/po2xznAHqk— Milwaukee Bucks (@Bucks) June 27, 2017 These awards are great for the players, as well as the franchise. Any and all...

What the Draft Tells Us About the New GM

What the Draft Tells Us About the New GM

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss Former Bucks GM, and now current Orlando Magic GM, John Hammond, was known for selecting players that were long and raw. Giannis Antetokounmpo and Thon Maker are the pinnacle of Hammond selections, taking both of them in the Top 15 of their respective drafts. This was new Bucks GM Jon Horst’s first crack at shaping the roster to “Own the Future.” With a week before the draft and a new GM in hand, it was expected that the Bucks would continue their trend of selecting raw talents in the first round. And they did! The draft did not signal any...
