“ don’t be so quick to judge, after all..you only see what I show you..”
Impressive and innovative Bucks ownership news this morning. Milwaukee is ensuring its greatness beyond basketball moving into the future.
An NBA road night in Iowa. 1st thing I saw was a Peterbilt dealer. Oldest truckers joke? Old truckers never die they get a new Peterbilt!
soo Saving Private Ryan, Blackhawk Down, Full Metal Jacket, and The Patriot?
best war movies, help me out.
Bucks waive Chris Wright and Elijah Millsap. Roster at 16.
why you gotta be so ruuude
The Bucks have officially picked up their 15/16 team options on Giannis and Henson. Because duh.
The Bucks have exercised the third-year contract option on Giannis and fourth-year option on John Henson, the team just announced.
Rule of thumb: if a player "hopes to be ready by [date/milestone]," just add 2 to 16 weeks for a more realistic timeline.
Basketball hasn't started until half of Bucks' rotation dinged up. Sanders (illness) / Ilyasova (knee) out Friday, Knight (groin) uncertain.
Parker had 17 points and 9 rebounds in that game in Vegas, before a packed crowd at Cox Pavilion. Wiggins had 18 points, 3 rebounds.
Last Parker-Wiggins duel came in Las Vegas during NBA Summer League. Wiggins was on Cavs at the time before big trade to Minnesota.
Jabari Parker on facing Andrew Wiggins in Iowa: "I'm not looking for any matchups. I don't know why a lot of people try to compare us."
Ersan Ilyasova (bruised knee) also will not travel on Bucks' two-game trip to Cedar Rapids and New York. Bucks play Knicks on Monday night.
Brandon Knight (groin) will go on trip to Iowa but not sure if he will play Friday vs. T-wolves. Larry Sanders (illness) not on trip.
Ersan Ilyasova has bruised knee and noticeable swelling. Won't practice until swelling subsides.
Radom question: Do I have any followers from or have been to Cedar rapid Iowa?!!!!!! I'm heading there today to play the Twolves tomorrow
Bucks roster at 16 and team has 15 guaranteed contracts. No battles for roster spots this fall.
Bucks have requested waivers on Chris Wright and Elijah Millsap. Wright left team earlier to pursue an opportunity in Europe.
Marcus! who that is at the door?
stop sicin bobby bish. joint trash
Nothing comes easy .
Bucks coach Jason Kidd claims all five starting spots are up for grabs. Said Kidd: "It's wide open."
The NBA should go to a 44-minute game when Major League Baseball goes to an 8-inning one. Just a stupid idea.
Sanders still out with what team officials say is the flu; Ilyasova (knee) didn't practice. Knight (groin injury) practices briefly.
Conlon, by the way, only played for 16 teams around the globe during his stories career.
Chris Webber, on NBA TV's Open Court, said the guy who gave him most fits was ... Marty Conlon.
Some power rankings have Packers at 7th. Offense is top 2 or 3. Run defense still a concern. Let's talk today at 2pm on The Big 920AM.
Bucks lose 106-100 and game ends with LeBron chatting with MKE coach Jason Kidd at midcourt. Parker leads Bucks with 18 pts, Dudley with 15.
Jabari with two tough step-backs tonight, second one with clock running down. Tough to stop if he's got that shot going.
Love came out to huge ovation. Likely done for night.
Love and Waiters carrying load for Cavs with LeBron on bench. Waiters drills pair of 3s and now has 21 points. Cavs 73, Bucks 68.
Parker making Love work on defense. Rookie picks up a foul on Love (hits 2 FTs) and now sinks a jumper over Cavs forward.
Giannis already with 5 fouls and goes to bench. Dudley enters. Now Jabari guarding Love.
Wolters starts 2nd half at PG and getting a good run tonight. Now in with Giannis at 3 and Jabari at 4.
HT: Bucks 53, Cavs 51. Bucks shooting 48.8% and led by Henson and Dudley with 9 pts, each. Mayo, Middleton and Pachulia each with 8.
Giannis pounding ball a bit in this stint at PG. Clock ran down but Pachulia got offensive board and was fouled. Made both FTs.
Not sure anyone other than Giannis has arms long enough to pull off that wraparound pass.
So maybe more Jabari Parker isos.
Game summary: Point Statue Zaza > Point Guard Giannis
Love not missing his 3s. He is 5 for 6 so far and has 18 points.
Somebody must have said something to Mayo. Much more aggressive in that time on floor and scored 8 points in 10 minutes.
Kidd said Dudley has assumed mentoring role with younger players on Bucks roster.
Kidd said Allen was not interested in returning to Bucks. Oldest Bucks player is 30-year-old Zaza Pachulia and Jared Dudley is 29.
Bucks now with small lineup with Henson at center and Dudley, Mayo, Bayless and Wolters.
Jared Dudley leads Bucks with 9 points on perfect 3 for 3 from beyond arc. Henson with 7 and Middleton 6.
Kidd said before game Bucks are aiming to hold foes to 23 points per quarter. They did not do it in first: Cavs lead 31-27.
Parker picks up third foul early as Love drains a 3 and can convert 4-point play. Love gets it.
Henson and Bayless now in game for Bucks with Parker, Wolters and Ilyasova.
Nate Wolters coming in to get an early look.
No LeBron tonight but still a decent crowd at the Q. Scoreboard is covered and will not be uncovered until Cavs' regular-season opener.
Bucks game tonight on NBA TV and WTMJ radio. No local TV.
Good to see former Bucks coaches Jim Boylan and Larry Drew today - both are Cavs assistants under David Blatt.
