Where have you been for the last 25 years? This thread is less about a single trade and more about the two decade plus incompetence of the man who has made the Bucks the laughingstock of the entire league.
And it can act as preventative medicine against the team making another stupid "win-now" trade this season.
Without this thread, there is no national scale embarrassment heaped upon the team by Bill Simmons.
We're doing our job here trying to hold this mess of an organization accountable, since no one else in town will.
As much as I generally like this board, this statement is sheer delusion. Truth is, the opinions on here have virtually NO effect on the bucks organization. None.
Also, we are not representative of the bucks fan base.
I believe the truth is somewhere in the middle. Some
of the bigger hitters of the national media (Simmons, Lowe, etc) have picked on the growing dissatisfaction by a knowlegeable chunk of fans. It doesn't have to be the majority of the fans either. Also, there certainly appears to at least be some acknowledgement from the Bucks FO, that not all the fan base is happy with the 25 year status quo of mediocrity. Couple that with the pressure for a new arena, and any negatives become a problem. It's reactive, but maybe some of this has been a wakeup call.
*edit* To paraphrase the immortal words of Phil Robertson, with the new arena in mind, the Bucks want "happy, happy, happy...."
