When the Milwaukee Bucks laid down a new court design at BMO Harris Bradley Center, everyone liked the unique design. It was a callback to Milwaukee's championship days in the 1970s and featured a wood grain design that would be truly unique in the NBA.
There is plenty to say for NBA courts being an artistic outlet in the NBA, an expression of a team's personality.
They also need to be functional, right? There, the Bucks court is already failing.
Milwaukee played only two games at home this preseason and completed only one of them. The second was a 14-9 final Friday that was called shortly into the game. Players for both the Bucks and the Raptors were slipping all over the floor. The officials decided to call the game. The Bucks graciously offered all fans in attendance a free ticket to any home game in November.
There is still the big question to answer before Saturday's home opener (against the Raptors), can you actually play on the court?
That is what the N...
BEST OF MAXIM
ST FRANCIS, Wis. -- Ersan Ilyasova made it through practice for the second consecutive day Tuesday, but Milwaukee Bucks coach Larry Drew will wait until Wednesday to determine if his starting power forward can play in the season opener in New York.
Ilyasova returned to practicing five-on-five Monday for the first time since spraining his right ankle in Milwaukee's preseason opener...
MILWAUKEE -- With the season opener looming on Wednesday, the Milwaukee Bucks got good news on the injury front Monday.
Reserve forwards Carlos Delfino and Ekpe Udoh were the only two players to sit out Monday, as point guard Brandon Knight (left hamstring), small forward Caron Butler (left ankle), point guard Luke Ridnour (back) and Gary Neal (illness) returned to practice.
ST. FRANCIS, Wis. -- From the moment Larry Drew walked in for his first interview with the Milwaukee Bucks, he knew exactly what was going to be the first thing asked of whoever was chosen as the team's new coach.
The franchise was in need of a serious change of culture.
"I was fully aware of that," Drew said. "That's one of the things I'm totally committed...
Milwaukee Bucks: John Hammond Is Currently the NBA’s Top Drafter
By Mike Elworth: Owner and Publisher/Hoopstuff..
Milwaukee Bucks’ GM, John Hammond isn’t close to being among the best NBA executives when it comes to trades or signing free agents, in fact it is arguable that he is among the poorest in the league when it comes to those aspects of being a general manager. The...
Andy Miller of ASM Sports agency is suing the current agent of his ex-client, and Milwaukee Bucks defensive specialist, Larry Sanders. The claim is very simple. Larry Sanders just made big bucks (no pun) by re-signing with the Bucks, and his former agent (Miller) missed out on the payday, and is seeking more than $6.6 million in damages. Sanders recently inked a $41 million contract...
The Milwaukee Bucks are the antithesis of the so-called
Oklahoma City model (i.e. being terrible for a spell and then drafting a few
studs to slowly morph into a contender).
Their owner, Herb Kohl, is notoriously insistent on fielding (or trying
to field) a winning team, and as a result Milwaukee, while never really being a true contender since around the turn of the century...
Ersan Ilyasova reported no problems after taking part in the Bucks' 5-on-5 practice session Monday at the Cousins Center.
If he feels good again Tuesday, it's possible the 6-foot-10 power forward could be ready for the season opener against the New York Knicks on Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden.
Ilyasova suffered a right ankle sprain in the Bucks' first preseason...
Milwaukee Bucks first-round draft pick Giannis Adetokunbo may only be 18 years old, but he's already accumulated a career's worth of jerseys.
The Milwaukee Bucks new partnership and ticket-sales gimmick is just weird.
Ironic. Strange. Likely unprecedented in the history of sports. Remember when the Milwaukee Bucks made the playoffs for the first time since forever a couple years ago and they had the “Feer the Deer” slogan?
It was cool because it rhymed and it made think of Milwaukee Bucks as fierce, strong...
