I think people jump to conclusions about players based on small sample sizes in different situations. He was good last year as the number 2 and number 1 option(when Lee was shut down)on a tanking team.


And again, I'm not saying he sucks I am saying maybe people jumped the gun based on the 2nd half of last season...or maybe he's in a slump....just odd he's shot over 40% once in 10 games

Philly are shaky too, I can see them falling in a big hole if Holiday cools off. Given Bynum was out until January and has now hurt himself again it seems a very real chance he won't play at all this season.

He's shot right around 40% from 3 for his past 4 years of basketball, not like last season was a once off and he hasn't shown he can shoot before then.

Imagine if Lebron or Wade went down with a season ending injury...
Go Bucks!

They'd still win the East without Wade, but if Lebron went down this thing would be thrown wide open.

Yep, they'd win the East with LeBron and 13 YMCA ballers.

Honestly, Boston could be the 7th seed this season and I would still consider them that favorite to meet Miami in the ECF.

Hilarious. You have to think Boston can bring it come playoffs time because they have in the past, but it's entirely possible New York, Brooklyn or Us are actually the second seed in the East simply by the attrition of everyone else sucking so bad.

What a few of those mid tier Western Conference teams would do to be moved to the East right now.

Just caught half of that first quarter with LA, man Houston looked woeful on D. 40 points in a quarter? Woof.

That team is very weird this year. Id never lay a bet for or against them at the rate their season has been going.

Him and Lamb were my top two targets at our spot. At the moment, can't complain with Henson but those three players will always be linked to me, considering draft position and the fact we were considering all 3 (from what I recall).

I didn't want Henson but that was based on the fact that I thought he had no offensive game

Asik is a great rebounder but man he's still terrible at times offensively.

Return to Milwaukee Bucks
