Against my better judgement, I gave the Bucks a shot. I watched about %80 of it. As a writer for a Wisconsin Sports Blog, I thought I owed it to them to check out the opening game, My bad.
All I have to say is: Nothing's changed. Its the same exact team as last year. New coach, new GM, trades, draft picks...doesn't matter. Charmain Villenueva is still soft. The guards still can't guard a folding chair. Redd still jacks up off-balance 20 footers with 2 guys in his face. The point guards blow (Tyronne Lue might be the worst Buck that actually gets minutes in a long time). Bogut still has zero post moves. McGlocklin and Paschke are still trying to pump up this garbage. Dan Gazuric still makes me laugh. And Knight Jr (Skiles) the disciplinarian didn't inspire much more hustle and defense than the previous coaches.
Bright spots: Luc Richard Mbah a Moute Fuamatu-Maafala was a good 2nd round pick. He plays some D and hit a few open jumpers. He'll stick around the league for a decade. Jefferson is way better than Yi. That's about it.
That's it, I'm done. They had their chance. This is the last word I write about the current Bucks (old Randy Breuer references allowed) unless Skiles throws a folding chair across the court.I also watched about 6 minutes of the Portland-Lakers game just to see Oden. He moves like a 38 year old Robert Parish, and that's not a good thing.
