Are the Milwaukee Bucks positionless?  Well, what is positionless?  According to Merriam-Webster’s dictionary, positionless isn’t actually a term.  Judging by all the red lines underneath the word every time I type it, autocorrect seems to agree with Merriam-Webster.  It is, however, an adjective that appears to mean “without a position.”  So again, are the Bucks positionless...

Report: Khris Middleton to reach quick agreement to stay with Bucks

Perhaps no player last season put themselves in a better position to cash in during free agency than Milwaukee Bucks swingman Khris Middleton. Middleton was one of the most productive two-way players in the league last season, helping Milwaukee with his versatility, shooting and defensive effort.

Where did the 2014-2015 Milwaukee Bucks come from?  This team went from only 15 wins last season to 41 wins and a playoff birth.  Not to mention that most of this came while the Bucks’ star rookie, Jabari Parker, sat on the sideline with a season ending knee injury.  So, what caused this sudden turn around to take place?  The answers are many, ranging from a change in ownership...
