Except without the athleticism and with a much better 3 ball.

Bucks wanted shooters...instead of bringing in guys they hope will become shooters..sounds lke they got guys who are mainly known just for shooting. OK. Hopefully their defense can be hidden in Bud's scheme and a few minutes a game they can flame throw a bit and keep the lead while the starters sit.

We walked the corpse of Kyle Korver out there. I think they can fit somewhere.

Ya that's what I'm thinking. Can't get slower than 40yr Korver with arthritic knees.

Love you man, I can't stop laughing

I really LOVE Sam Merrill . He can playmake and shoot the 3 off the dribble in P&R situation. The detail that is not shown in the stats is that his shooting form never changes regardless how much pressure he has from D.
He finds a way to pull his shot every time

He says here , that in the offseason he lost 15 pounds and dropped his fat% to 9% while ended the season at about 14%.

I always liked him , so excited to see him . I can watch regular season Bucks now, I am hyped to watch what some young players can do

This is why I love sports. Someone can be done with a team that has their favorite player 2x MVP because they didn't trade for DeMar DeRozan and then be brought right back in because they draft a youth pastor with the 60th pick in the draft.

Merrill reminds me a little of the great Drazen Petrovic while he was in Real Madrid.
Drazen actually gained muscle when he went to the NBA , so if he has anyone to admire and kinda imitate
Drazen should be his idol ... so happy to have him here.

I really just cant get over how much he looks like Luka Doncic. Its uncanny, really. Never watched him play, won't pretend to know his game well

Maybe Luca's long lost twin brother. That's how we'll recruit Luca after his rookie contract's done. Best 60th pick ever!

Can someone explain to me why we rushed to sign him to this unfavorable contract?

Great to hear that the weight loss is already happening. I think Merrill wants it badly, and will do what it takes to maximize his game.

Its rare to see a player who's such straight arrow off the court also have that swagger on the court. Merrill has complete confidence in his game, he's great under pressure.
