I'm confused, were the callers trying to say this was a bad thing? :o

Ended up being a nice win, everyone seemed happy at the end. A very sluggish start, almost to the point it looked like they didn't care. My thoughts on the game...

1. Really love Henson's upside and want him in the regular rotation.
2. Ersan seemed more relaxed and thought had a good game.
3. This is the BJ3 we want more consistently, excellent game.
4. Tight rotation, I liked it.
5. I'm over Ellis, hope he's dealt.
6. Sanders is awesome! Wonder if he starts p*ssing people off though with some of his antics. :)
7. Congrats to Coach Boylan on 1st win here as Head Coach.

We'll see what happens tomorrow. I'm expecting a loss, but if they play like they did in the second half they may can steal one I suppose.

Larry Sanders may be my favorite NBA player after that

Dunleavy should go. He's been one of the three best players this season but they can't keep Harris out of the rotation.

Everything else was perfect. Except Monta. He's **** awful.

They were saying it's a good thing. Sparky standing up for Skiles....

Brandon played good, hopefully he can put together a couple good months of basketball for the rest of the season.

Our frontcourt is pretty much set, got starters for the future and good depth. Like everyone else says, if we get rid of Monta I'm pretty excited about the future of this team.

I don't know why Sparky is angry. Skiles didn't want to be here and his heart wasn't in it.

Nice to have a C that can run the floor. That one handed oop was sick.

A couple weeks back after the Nets game I was listening to Sparky and he was supporting Skiles b/c he is not convinced we're going to get a better coach than him if he was fired. Well now that he's officially gone, he's probably not thrilled with the move so losing his mind.

He's more upset that Herb Kohl kept Hammond and that ultimately the team goes nowhere until Kohl sells or empowers a high quality GM. Wants to keep fans grounded that we've been through the "new coach" will turn things around story in Milwaukee many times. And it always ends the same way.

the only thing sparky ever gets right is being passionate about Milwaukee having an NBA franchise.

listening to Boylan post game, he may not be the coach Skiles is, but you can tell his attitude is a million times more positive and the players seemed a lot more relaxed.

and that he wants Monta gone, I can get behind that as well.

Jennings is actually a decent lob passer, if we actually ran an offense, perhaps we could use that somehow

Get Monta off this team, and we may have something at least worth watching. Tonight was a nice preview. Without Monta sucking, it would've been a near perfect game.

I'd pretty much argue most lobs come off penetration by your PG, someone Jennings is not good at. Our offense is a problem, but that may also be on Jennings just as much as anyone.

I'd agree with Sparky but Skiles wanted nothing to do with this team. He had to go.

I'm going to the game on Sunday so I'm getting pumped for that, hopefully the 2 games in between don't dampen my enthusiasm.

Was Boylan sober tonight? His face is usually red. Literally. Not tonight though.


Really happy with the final product although we started out disjointed a bit. Love the starting lineup. I always like the chemistry and passing between Moute and Ersan. Those two always work well together.

Sanders was beasting tonight. He's definitely going to continue to get himself in trouble with his flair. Rocking the rim tonight should've easily been a tech. When he put his hand up after that one block sailed into the stands it kind of looked like he was saluting.

I kind of want to nickname him "The Captain"

John Henson was fantastic. Kid just has a ton of basketball talent. Was really happy to watch him and Larry share the floor at the end of the first quarter. Jennings was finding them both for alley ooops above the rim. Can't remember the last time the Bucks had frontcourt players that could play like that. Plus Henson has got post moves. He's the one that can really open things up for shooters. Get Tobias out there too and it might actually look like the Bucks have some action in the post on offense.

Hopefully the Bucks continue to share the ball and play defense.

Tomorrow night will be Boylan's Revenge!

I think more are on the fast break than off penetration. I've always been surprised we don't see more of them with all the blocking the team has.
