MILWAUKEE The results-oriented nature of sports can lead fans and reporters even players and coaches -- to jump to conclusions, regardless of sample size. Just five games after the trade deadline deal that brought Magic shooting guard J.J. Redick to Milwaukee, it's way too early to tell how successful it was, simply because there have been too few of those results. But the early returns on the Bucks' three-guard rotation are positive.
