He's shooting 38% overall and 32% from 3 for the tournament, and has largely been the guard/wing getting the least amount of burn. Either Pop is doing Bud a favor by not burning Midds out, or Midds has just been that bad. I lean toward the latter.


Pop has been terrible. I don't know if he or the Greek coach was worse.


Is Pop shooting those shots for Middleton? Either way, I'll take the guy with five rings.


This is beyond Middleton. No but he's coaching like he's got dementia. Why are the big men not spacing the floor? Even if they don't make a difference and Gobert still would rather take away the paint than contest, at least try it for a quarter.

Pop probably needs to hang it up

That said, we gave him Joe Harris as one of his primary players. Yeah, that’s going to be a problem.

Back in the days some of the best players in the nba would be enough to dominate against the top teams in europe, now you need the best players to win

I wonder if the Spurs would have offered Middleton the MAX this summer :lol:

The bigger problem, from a Bucks perspective, is that Joe Harris (he of the $8M/year salary) has largely outplayed Middleton (he of the $35M/year salary). Maybe the bigger problem was giving him Middleton as one of his primary players.

You clearly haven’t been watching the games. Joe Harris hasn’t been able to guard anyone on the floor. US might as well have had Jason Kapono on the team. I’m a big fan of his, but his defense has been atrocious in these games.

Mids not being viewed by Pop as a better option than Joe Harris in an elimination game is another problem.

Not one we can do anything about though.

Joe Harris was actually really solid throughout the summer. Definitely earned his minutes/played better than Middleton.

I'd agree- I think Joe maps fairly well to being an International ball guy, too, if you're selecting horses for courses.

Steph Curry might map better.

Well, on paper one of those guys is the reigning 3 point champ. ;)

A team would've been better with JIngles instead of Middleton. Who would've thought!?

Patty Thrills continues to delight.

I hope we don't find ourselves needing to start posting Jingles vs. Khris earnings notes in the coming seasons ala Baynes vs. Henson.

In case you're wondering- next season Jingles will earn $11,954,546, Khris will earn $30,603,448.

Could you imagine a little 2 man game/pick and roll action with Jingles as the ball handler and Giannis rolling to the hoop? Khash money.

If Hill was a few years younger, Patty would be an awesome backup to him. Joe would be a perfect fit as mentioned.

Bruno Caboclo would be an all star if he played under Giannis "rules".

Joe Ingles is like a Lamar Odom/Peja hybrid for the Boomers. His **** talk is also ramped up to another level. Hope you guys take the gold.

Hammond almost brought Jingles to Milwaukee. Wonder why he ultimately didn't.

Crazy that Team USA could have two more games. Seeing that they are pulling Marcus Smart already.
