Stop whining and pay the arena freight, Milwaukee

Published April 24, 2014

I can't believe that the city of Milwaukee, and the surrounding counties (and the state, for that matter) would let one of only 30 NBA franchises walk out the door because its politicians and residents are cheap. Get over it, and pony up.

Reaction to Bucks' big day leaves something to be desired

Published April 22, 2014

Reactions across Milwaukee were mixed regarding the sale of the Milwaukee Bucks, and while I truly believe Milwaukee is on the way up and that momentum is a wonderful thing, I'd hate to see the momentum halted by small minds and picky picky people.

Spring is finally heating up, especially for the red-hot Brewers. But it's cold for others out there, like the last-place Bucks. What's trending this month? Nordstrom Rack, Hank the Dog, and of course, construction. Everywhere. We're here to poke fun at all of it.

The chapter closed, officially, on the 2013-14 season when the clock ran out on the Milwaukee Bucks' franchise-record 67th loss Wednesday night. A new chapter was started hours before however, when Marc Lasry and Wes Edens were introduced as the new owners of the franchise.

Heavy lifting still ahead for Bucks

Published April 16, 2014

Despite news that the two new owners of the Milwaukee Bucks and outgoing owner Herb Kohl will contribute $200 million to a new arena, that leaves at least another $200 million to be raised for a new arena.

Knight has shined in dark season for Bucks

Published April 16, 2014

Brandon Knight came to Milwaukee over the summer in a trade of point guards, as the Bucks sent their erstwhile "face of the franchise" Brandon Jennings to Detroit for him. Just 21 years old, but with 141 games under his belt, what was Knight? A point guard? A shooting guard? As his first season in Milwaukee comes to a close, the Bucks may have found what they needed anyway: a basketball player.

Published March 12, 2014

You must see this amazing alley oop executed by the Bucks Rim Rockers. Sure it took two takes, but it was stellar and a testament to the skill level of the entire squad.

Sports talk radio goes in the tank when it comes to the Bucks

Published March 4, 2014

There are many on local sports talk radio who think the Milwaukee Bucks should purposely lose games so they ensure they will get the No. 1 pick in the draft. It's time someone took these crazies to task, and I am the guy to do it.

Published Feb. 26, 2014

This has been one of the most challenging seasons in Larry Drew's long career in the NBA, but he's proven to be a steady leader and the young players on the Milwaukee Bucks are improving under his watch. He deserves a chance to turn the team around.
