Disgruntled Bucks’ fans are lobbying for their hometown team to tank. They are doing so by way of a massive billboard. You can check out this website, where Milwaukee Bucks’ fans are raising cash to assemble this billboard. Indiegogo They’re asking for donations to reach a cash goal of $3,000 to $4,000 in order to acquire this billboard. These fans seem to understand that in the dog eat dog world that is the National Basketball Association, winning takes talent, and this current Bucks’ roster lacks that in a BIG way. They need to tank in order to grab a nice draft pick in what should prove to be one of the better NBA drafts in recent memory. The Bucks need to land a front man for the future. A guy who can carry this miserable franchise to the playoffs, or perhaps the Finals. Here’s a bit of information you’ll get their site: We love the franchise and want to help secure the Bucks long-term future in the city. They have been an important part of Wisconsin for over 40 years. However, there are pressures on the team for additional revenue sources that will necessitate the construction of a new arena in the coming years to help secure the future of the franchise in Milwaukee.  The solution of a new arena will be a tough sell for the politicians and business community until such point as the Bucks become relevant once again to the local sports scene.  Unfortunately, over the past decade, the product on the court has been uninspiring and the result has been public apathy as to the future of the team. In order for the Bucks to regain their footing with the fans and the community, they need to drastically improve the product on the court. As we have seen with the Packers in 1992 and the Brewers in 2004, moribund franchises can be turned around quickly. The Bucks can be a successful small market franchise both on the court and financially.  However, for the Bucks to do this, they need to change their approach.  One way to help change this approach is if the fan base can let the organization know that they will support a full rebuilding of the team under a new front office direction.  This means being willing to part with high-priced journeymen veteran players and focus on building around young talent acquired with high draft picks.  The talent rich 2014 NBA draft is the place to start. These fans seem determined to assemble this billboard and raise awareness that will reach to the heights of the Bucks’ organization, and perhaps persuade the franchise to tank. Although, with a 2-11 record through the first 13 games of the season, helping the Bucks get worse than they already are seems like a waste of time. This team might not win 20 games this season, which would more than likely set them up for at least a top five pick. We understand that the allure of tanking is particularly high this season, with top prospects like Andrew Wiggins, Jabari Parker, and many others waiting in line for their turn to be drafted into the pros. Perhaps these fans just figured that the Bucks organization needed a little help understanding their jobs.   The post Check out this Milwaukee Bucks’ billboard appeared first on Pass The Pill - Kings of Hoops.
