Pass The Pill:
Milwaukee Bucks guard Brandon Jennings has not been shy at all discussing his displeasure with the Bucks, or his potential departure from the team when he becomes a free agent this summer. Jennings, who is as dangerous a player as we have in this game when he gets it going, took another opportunity to lash out on twitter at his current coach, Jim Boylan.
During the Bucks 109-99 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder this past Saturday, coach Boylan called a timeout with just under thirty seconds remaining with his team down ten points. Jennings wasn’t thrilled with the decision, as noted in this now deleted tweet after the game where he says “Took a Timeout with 29sec down 10pts. Didn’t know it was 10pts plays!!!”
Clearly, Jennings is being sarcastic in his tweet, and this is just another sign that his days in Milwaukee are probably coming to an end sooner rather than later. Coach Boylan doesn’t have anything to apologize for, either; coaches are notorious for coaching games until they are over, no matter the situation. Boylan was probably figuring this was a good real-game situation to draw up a late-game play that the team could possibly use when they were actually in a close game.
However, its not like the Bucks are going to need those in the playoffs, considering they probably won’t come within 10 points of the Miami Heat when they inevitably meet in the first round this year. Boylan won’t have to worry though because by the time he does need that play they ran, Jennings will be part of another NBA roster.

BEST OF MAXIM
Brandon Jennings has made it quite clear the last few months that he isn’t really happy playing in Milwaukee. That follows the pattern for many high-profile players that have played with the Bucks, going all the way back to some guy named Lew Alcindor. Jennings frustrations continued last night after he disagreed with head coach Jim Boylan calling a timeout with 29 seconds left...
MILWAUKEE -- All right stop, collaborate and listen.
Saturday night, the Milwaukee Bucks brought Vanilla Ice and the 1990s back to the BMO Harris Bradley Center.
Performing at halftime of Saturday's game between the Bucks and Thunder, Vanilla Ice played a three-song set starting with his remix of "Play that Funky Music" and continuing with "Ninja Rap" before...
After watching the NBA for over 15 years, I don't recall any moment like the incident that NBA referee Bill Kennedy suffered tonight during the tip-off of the Milwaukee Bucks game against the Charlotte Bobcats.As Milwaukee center Larry Sanders won the tip-off against Charlotte's Bismack Biyombo, he accidentally swung his elbow in the direction of Kennedy who was trying to...
As you can see above referee Bill Kennedy’s night didn’t get off to a rousing start, as he took a Larry Sanders unintentional elbow right to the kisser on the opening tip-off of Monday night’s Bucks-Bobcats game. Kennedy was dropped like a bag of potatoes, and play was stopped immediately as the fallen official was tended to by medical staff. To his credit Kennedy stayed in...
Bucks point guard Brandon Jennings took to Twitter after the team’s loss to the Thunder, questioning his coach Jim Boylan’s late-game timeout.
Of course, he deleted it soon after, but Sean Highkin of USA TODAY Sports has an image of it:
Jennings has made no secret of his unhappiness with the Bucks in recent months. As far back as last year, he was looking...
WHAT A LEGEND
I can’t decide if this is the worst or best idea ever. The Milwaukee Bucks had 90′s night this weekend and they also booked a certain Vanilla Ice to perform. The result was just as good as the terrible video quality. [The Big Lead] Article found on: Next Impulse Sports
MILWAUKEE -- Larry Sanders had a career-high 24 points and 13 rebounds as Milwaukee cruised to a 131-102 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats on Monday night for the Bucks' highest scoring total in more than four years.
Monta Ellis had 19 points, a career-high 14 assists and six steals to help Milwaukee pull 1 12 games behind seventh-place Boston in the Eastern Conference playoff...
It isn’t much of a big deal when rapper-turned-house-flipper Vanilla Ice shows up to perform at halftime for NBA games, because the artist otherwise known as Rob Van Winkle has done it before. But nevertheless I like it when he does, because it gives me a chance to complain about one of my guiltiest pleasures, The Vanilla Ice Project on DIY, thanks to the loosest of ties to sports...
MILWAUKEE -- U.S. Army SPC Nicholas Neumuth hadn't seen his kids since May 2012.
So upon returning from a nine-month tour of duty in Afghanistan, Neumuth thought he'd make the return from his first overseas deployment since joining the Army nearly two years ago a memorable one.
During the first timeout in Saturday's game between the Milwaukee Bucks and Oklahoma City...
On this day in 1969, the Milwaukee Bucks signed Lew Alcindor (Kareem Abdul-Jabbar) to his first NBA contract. He would play for Milwaukee until 1975, then join the L.A. Lakers until his retirement in 1989.
While Kareem’s career as a Laker is well-documented, his accomplishments as a Buck often go understated. With that said, here are some things you need to know about the Buck...

Call it hazards of the job but NBA ref Bill Kennedy was at the right place but at the wrong time.
It was your typical tipoff like every tipoff this past season for the Bucks and Bobcats. Kennedy is in the middle of Bucks' Larry Sanders and Charlotte's Bismack Biyombo, tosses the ball in the air but instead of just jogging to the Bucks' side of the court after Sanders...
The Milwaukee Bucks just improved their position in the Eastern Conference standings. They can partly thank the Minnesota Timberwolves for that.
Milwaukee continues its push for its first playoff berth in three seasons on Wednesday night when the visiting Timberwolves go for their first set of back-to-back wins since December.
With nine games left and a six-game edge over ninth...
