Photo Credit: David Bernacchi John Henson, PF Milwaukee Despite possessing incredible length and a wide array of skills at 6’11, Henson has never been able to shake the ‘project’ tag. Why? His body type doesn’t necessarily lend itself to athletics. His legs are pronated, he’s duck footed and his awkward gait prevents him from completing fluid lateral movements. In terms of strength, he’s muscled up to 220 pounds, but that’s likely the extent of what his lanky frame can handle.  Now put all that aside, because production is the great equalizer. Henson has developed into a force at every level, with his positive physical gifts consistently overwhelming his at times unattractive style. His first 39 games in the NBA sing a familiar tune: slow, but steady progress with explosions of massive potential. The 14th pick in the 2012 draft is capitalizing on erratic minutes, averaging six points, four rebounds (1.7 offensive) and 0.6 blocks per game. When stretched out over 48 minutes those num...

MILWAUKEE SUCKS

Milwaukee Sucks. No not all of Milwaukee, just the Bucks. It’s really beyond white flag waving time and hope for next year. I liked this team quite a bit earlier in the year.   They played hard and were unselfish.  And then mediocrity and thugdom kicked in by Monta Ellis and Branchise.  It’s not their fault.  Really.  It’s all they know…. and they don’t know winning...
