I dunno man, it would crush his confidence big time.Khris at least is quite good on D and draws some attention.

As long as he's playing well in February, keep him in there.

They've played a top 3-5 hardest schedule according to ESPN/BR through the first 1/6th of the season. Detroit will be a big game though. Drummond is playing unreal, Harris/Bradley is a pretty solid offensive duo.


SRS and RPI doesn't say the whole truth of how difficult our schedule has been so far because when we faced the Cavs(twice) and OKC, 2 contender teams based on talent, they had a terrible record and it probably hurt our RPI and SRS numbers.

Would love to see what SVG would do with our personnel. Because it's a hell of a lot better than what he's got now.

Sat in section 222. There was a HUGE crowd of Bucks fans there going crazy. Is that every game?

He needs to cut that out and just play in the offense as the third option (4th when Bari is back) and then the hating will stop.


I'll be happy with Midds when he starts playing defense again.

Look at this play for example. Can't tell if Khris Middleton or Michael Redd.

I don't know. Maybe he's the type of guy whose impact can't be/won't be measured by numbers. But that's not the guy we were sold.


Don't worry, Jabari will be our backup small ball center like Julius Randle, once he comes back. That is if Kidd knows what he's doing.


Randle is a much much better rebounder and shot blocker. He can actually control the glass when he is in there.

With that said... I can see some benefit with Jabari at the 5. He is so so bad off the ball.. we won't have to worry about him chasing guys around screens or denying cuts. Plus he has enough meat on him to body up against centers. It isn't the worst idea in the world.

I assume you're getting at that I defend CHL at times. I don't think I ever said that he doesn't bash Jabari or that he doesn't bring it up too much. All I've said is that he doesn't personally attack posters and isn't rude to people. he sticks to basketball arguments and points for the most part, whereas the people coming at him get personal and attack him. And yet, here were you attacking him/me essentially. he made a basketball comment, someone attacked him personally, he responded basektbally. He let it die, you attack again.

Where does Henson’s lefty hook rank among the best post moves in the league? I’m only half kidding; it seems like that shot is basically automatic for him and it’s so weird lol

I was at the preseason game in MAdison last year sitting right behind the Wolves bench right behind KG. Henson pulled off the lefty hook and KG started barking at the guys on the floor about how they could fall for it, it's his only move etc. henson ran by laughing doing the Shush finger over his mouth to KG and yelled to KG that it's all he has.

a few all time singles on there but as far as album, I'd argue Mobb Deep, The Infamous.

It's a pretty unusual shot. He can even get it off facing the basket and it's functionally a floater. It's been solid in the past but it's really been money this year. Shooting over 60% on hooks.
Mega Giannis!

I'm at a pretty uncharted point in Bucks fandom. I have virtually no problem with the way anybody being assigned their current role, and confidence in pretty much everybody to do the job being asked of them.

No, don't let him control the ball the way he likes. It's not productive. We started call him Khobe and similar nicknames because of just that...and he's obviously no where near as good.

He should play the 3&D roll in the starting lineup. If he can't adapt and wants to control the ball, then it's time to ship him out.
