Crossroads 2017: Where Milwaukee Stands Now

Crossroads 2017: Where Milwaukee Stands Now

The NBA’s Eastern Conference is in upheaval. How does it all affect the Bucks? There are a lot of reasons why the summer of 2017 is important for the Milwaukee Bucks, but the summer has been surprisingly pivotal for a number of teams across the NBA, particularly in the Eastern Conference. To name a few notable events for the Bucks’ contemporaries: The Boston Celtics were able to sign Gordon Hayward in free agency. The Toronto Raptors appear to be keeping the band together, retaining Serge Ibaka and keeping an offer open to Kyle Lowry (while losing some of their important supporting...

Jon Horst: In His Own Words Who IS Jon Horst? The REAL Jon Horst, I mean. Yes, he's the General Manager of the Milwaukee Bucks, and yes, he's able to utter every meaningless platitude you could hope for from your top executive. But if you got him alone in a room for, say, nine minutes and just talked, how would he come off? We spectators aren't afforded the chance to corner Horst, but others with a larger platform can, and Chris Mannix (of The Vertical fame) did just that. Jon joined Mannix's radio program, the aptly named “Chris Mannix Show”, to chat Bucks, basketball, and the pursuit...

Roundtable: Bye Bye, Bradley Center: Part III

Roundtable: Bye Bye, Bradley Center: Part III

We swap stories and share memories of the BMO Harris Bradley Center The 2017-18 season will be the last that the Bucks call the BMO Harris Bradley Center home. This offseason we will be chronicling the nearly 30 year history of the Bradley Center before it leaves Milwaukee’s downtown for good. What Was Your First Memory of The Bradley Center? Gabe: I was only five at the time, but my first game at the BC was quite the excitement. I had posters of the Big Three sprawled all across my room. Seeing them live and in-person was a thrill I’ll remember the rest of my life. Adam: It was a...

Can a state-of-the-art arena put Chicago-area tuchuses in the seats?

Monday Morning Media Roundup: July 17th, 2017

Insert your Derrick Rose outrage here... And just like that, we're right back to our previous inert state again. The Milwaukee Bucks’ Summer League team performed rather poorly and earned a deserving 1-4 record in SL play for their troubles. Some guys flashed promising signs (Sterling Brown anyone?) while others had plenty of nights they'd rather forget (psst, Thon Maker). Good or bad, Milwaukee's time in the sunshine is once more at an end, and we gather here this Monday morning with no more active basketball to be played. No, I'm not crying, you're crying! Yet, even without on-court...

Bucks vs. Jazz Thoughts and Tidbits

Bucks vs. Jazz Thoughts and Tidbits

Jalen Moore hit some threes! Another rather depressing Summer League game against the Jazz featuring very little of the starters didn’t give us much to come away with, but we tried to find some pieces to leave you with heading into the offseason. Thoughts and Tidbits Stephen Zimmerman got the start as center for today’s game, a fellow Runnin’ Rebel alongside Rashad Vaughn. He looked overmatched almost all game. D.J. Wilson whipped a crisp pass to Gary Payton II around the arc in transition in the first and almost immediately stepped back behind the arc to ensure he was available for...

Bucks vs. Jazz Recap: Another Vegas Letdown as Milwaukee Wilts, 97-76

Bucks vs. Jazz Recap: Another Vegas Letdown as Milwaukee Wilts, 97-76

Only a few months to real Bucks basketball everybody... As the old adage goes, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. That’s about the most comforting advice I can give Bucks fans hoping to see a more competitive squad at this year’s iteration of the annual poor hooping summit where Milwaukee convenes a team. Today’s loss to the (winless) Utah Jazz, 97-76, felt like a smidge more salt in whatever wound might’ve lingered from the ugly scab against Sacramento, but there were a few moments of light we can take away. D.J. Wilson (8 points, 3 rebounds albeit on 3-10 shooting) showed the...
