So I guess this means that J.J. Redick won’t be re-signing with the Milwaukee Bucks after his contract expires after the season.
It’s been all downhill for the Bucks since point guard Brandon Jennings guaranteed that they would beat the Miami Heat in six games. They’ve been soundly defeated in three straight games and are on their way to being swept by the reigning champions.
Now comes news of inner turmoil within the team as the recently acquired Redick has seen his playing time curtailed significantly during the playoffs mainly due to his poor shooting.
And according to Charles Gardner of the Milwaukee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel, the guard who bounced back in Game 3, says that there has been no communication between him and Bucks head coach Jim Boylan.
Bucks coach Jim Boylan said in his pregame remarks that he told Redick to shoot with confidence but Redick disputed that.
“Jim never talked to me,” Redick said. “He didn’t say anything to me. I haven’t spoken to him during the playoffs. I did not get that message.
“I don’t need anybody telling me to be confident. I would have appreciated it.
“It wasn’t a matter of Jim or my dad or my wife or God saying be confident.
“Be on the court, take your shots. They’ll be there.”
This issue doesn’t bode well for the Bucks going forward, they are now in danger of losing three of their best guards in Redick, Jennings, and Monta Ellis to free agency in the summer. They gave up a very promising player in Tobias Harris in the Redick trade at the deadline with the intention of making a strong playoff push and re-signing him but now it appears both scenarios are high unlikely.

The Milwaukee Bucks stood little to no chance against the Miami Heat to begin with heading into the first round of the playoffs, but they might as well pack their bags now. Miami took a commanding 3-0 series lead with a 104-91 win in Milwaukee on Thursday night. If it wasn’t already over, it is now.
One of the lone bright spots on the night for the Bucks was JJ Redick, who scored...
J.J. Redick came out of his shooting slump from Game 1 & 2, where he shot a combined 1-7, Thursday night. In the Game 3 loss to the Heat, scoring 11 points on 4-7 shooting in 17 minutes. When asked if his coach’s pep talk about shooting with confidence helped some, Redick disputed a conversation ever taking place – in fact, the two haven’t spoken since the playoffs began...
Not exactly the best formula for beating the Miami Heat in 6 games, I think. The Milwaukee Bucks find themselves at the mercy of the Miami Heat, and guard J.J. Redick decided to let this be known about the state of the team and the state of his particular relationship with head coach Jim Boylan. [...]
There is not a whole ton for Magic fans to watch basketball-wise right now.
The Magic are not in the Playoffs and there are few players that would interest Magic fans. If you are watching the Playoffs, it is likely because you love basketball or are pining to fill an empty hole in your heart for Playoff basketball.
One player most Magic fans want to do well is J.J. Redick...
ST. FRANCIS, Wis. The Milwaukee Bucks understand the end is likely near. No team in NBA history has ever rallied to win a playoff series after dropping the first three games, let alone trying to do it against the powerhouse Miami Heat.
But don't expect the Bucks to fold up and pack for vacation just yet. Milwaukee expects to come to play Sunday afternoon for Game 4 at the BMO...
If you thought Brandon Jennings would retract his “win in 6″ prediction after the Bucks went down 0-2 in their first-round series against the Heat, you were wrong. The Milwaukee point guard is as confident as ever, saying his team has showed a lot of improvement throughout the series and they’ll still win the series in six games but it “might take a little longer.”
Not surprisingly, the Milwaukee Bucks find themselves down 2-0 to the Miami Heat in the first round of the NBA playoffs. While almost everyone on the outside picked the Heat to win this series, Brandon Jennings of the Bucks created some news when he predicted the Bucks would win in 6.
While from my point of view I had no problem with the statements, many laughed heartily...
Who knew that Milwaukee Bucks center Larry Sanders could run the floor like this?
During game three of the Miami Heat/Milwaukee Bucks first round playoff series, Sanders went coast-to-coast to throw down a one-handed jam with many Miami defenders trailing him:

MILWAUKEE -- A lot has been made about the Miami Heat's ability to let a team hang around before turning it on and flipping a switch.
The Heat have needed two big second half runs to pull away from the Milwaukee Bucks in the first two games of their Eastern Conference first round playoff series, overwhelming the underdog Bucks with a burst of energy mixed with talent that'...
After falling behind the Miami Heat 2-0, Brandon Jennings of Milwaukee still thinks the Bucks are going to win the series in six games.
At times, even professional National Basketball Association players can throw terrible passes and during tonight’s Milwaukee Bucks/Miami Heat game three, Bucks guard Brandon Jennings threw a pretty bad one.
It happened in the first quarter of play as Jennings was attempting to find Bucks forward Mike Dunleavy in the corner for a three point attempt.
Watch as the ball flies over...
Remember when Monta Ellis said that he would “put himself in the same category as D-Wade”? Oh, you don’t? Then watch this video and have a great time laughing to yourself.
Look, I like Monta Ellis. He’s a very good NBA talent, but to put yourself in the “same category” as Dwyane Wade might be stretching the truth to it’s breaking point. To be a tier or two below Wade...
