This but with Redick at least they'll be a little more enjoyable mediocre wins.

I have never been so disinterested in the team as I am now. I honestly dont know/care how they will do. If they go on some crazy FTD run or Monta learns how to play basketball that could reel me in.

As of right now, I have no interest in winning the 8th seed and getting curb stomped by Miami.

I'll say 15-14 finish. .500 in true Bucks fashion. We pull a win against Miami out of our ass and lose 4-1.

I didn't need to read those Hammond quotes. Hoping we can at least solidify the 8th spot. :D

Unreal.

"you know you don't know what it will look like in a few years if those guys are playing for ORL or someone else and we think about how we didnt decide to keep them, but this was about now, trying to win games now, we're trying to solidfy the 8th spot, maybe move up to 7, trying to win games this year."

I'm not going to go through each game and mark off wins or losses, but I'd expect 16-13 with a 2 or 3 game variation on either side as a possibility. Possibly even better if they match up well with Atlanta in their 4 games. Win-now baby.

We most certainly can't trade the players most responsible for us 'not playing quite well'. Have to just add the token <deadline or offseason> new guy and hope it works in our favor.

For the record, it does seem like Hammond is covering his butt big time with those quotes, but I'm not absolving him of his crimes. He is the one on the line with the other GM being taken to the woodshed each time. "But Ferry backed out!" -- Should have had a contingency plan for the contingency plan for the contingency plan.

"Both are really good guys and both are guys that I think have a chance to be in this league for a long time," Hammond said. "You do look up and you don't know what it's going to look like in a few years. But his is kind of more about trying to win now."



I don't believe for a second that Hammond didn't get bullied into this move by Herb Kohl.

Kohl gave him a hard line directive to execute this type of a move and this is what Hammond could get done.

Blame it on his negotiating skills for the actual pieces, but he was put down this path by Kohl.


I couldn't agree more.

Your interpretation jibes with the attitudes that Paschke and Davis took on Friday's Roundtable. They were like the court discussing an edict by the King. One that the King hadn't publicly linked his name to. Not wasting energy on IF it should have been done. Just commenting on what it might mean. Paschke was in an odd mood. Perhaps a veteran observer pissed but silent at the way things are now.

Right now I don't see much point in my whining or raging about it. It is just is the way it is. What can't be cured must be endured.

Fans want a championship. Its really not that hard to understand. Surely youve been around this board long enough to realize this by now, so quit trolling.


For the most part, I don't blame Hammond. He worked really hard on a deal that would have made is a very good team witha huge amount of flexibility this offseason. Unfortunately he got played and when his move backfired on him he panicked and pulled the trigger, knowing if he didnt make a move there would be bag night part 2, which I dont doubt for a second would have happened. He deserves the blame for that, unless Kohl forced his hand which I don't think necessarily happened but you can't factor that out.

Ah yes, the awesome power of the grocery bag. I suppose some may cower at it. Some might even dread the "Paper or plastic?" question posed by the bored high school kid bagging groceries as though it were a Zen koan. But I doubt that an NBA GM, even one for our favorite have-not team, fears a repeat of the Wrath of Kohl to the extent that he panics and makes unpremeditated moves.

Image

I smile whenever I read the things imputed to Herb Kohl here — puppet-master of mediocrity, meddlesome old man, longer for the eighth seed, center point in a misguided circle of friends. Every bad move bears the mark of Kohl, and every good move gets past him when he isn't looking. And the opinions are expressed with the certainty of the characters in 1984 describing the attributes of Big Brother.

I agree with you that Hammond is doing what Damon Runyon said we all do, which is the best we can. I disagree that he is a neurotic wreck pinballing from panic move to panic move because of ownership pressure.

Picking up Redick was a relatively inconsequential but logical move given the likelihood of an impending vacancy at the two. It will be nice to be able to kick the tires for the rest of the season and see what he is playing next to Jennings. But in the grand scheme of things, this was what most NBA trades are: garbage for garbage. Hardly a blip on the radar, even for a couple of have-not teams.

As Bucks fans, of course we'd like to see a championship team here. Nobody, probably not even our reviled little senator, wants repeated failure. But as long as the Association is three or four good teams and a couple of dozen Washington Generals, that's our fate. I'm glad I saw us win a coin flip four decades ago, and I hope we get lucky again someday, but in the meantime I'm not venting by spinning wacky theories.
