New Bucks coach Larry Drew fines wife at introductory press conference

Whenever I attend a news conference, I set my phone to vibrate. Then, while waiting for the news conference to begin, I check my phone again to make sure I set it correctly. And if the wait is long enough, I check my phone a few more times to make sure I didn’t imagine my previous checks or somehow undo something in my pocket.

But if my spouse was the reason all the reporters assembled, maybe I wouldn’t be so paranoid about interrupting.

For new Bucks coach Larry Drew’s wife, she should have been.

Gery Woelfel of The Journal Times:

Drew prompted a few more chuckles just minutes later when Sharon’s cellphone went off. “That’s a fine,” Drew said to his wife, who was once a cheerleader at the University of Washington. “That will be a fine.”

After the Scott Skiles regime, Milwaukee players might have been hoping for more leniency, and maybe they’ll get it. But they shouldn’t count on it.

    Doesn’t matter who they hire or ho he fines. If smarter, more talented players aren’t brought in and the front office actually does their job, the Bucks will remain neutral.

    The clock on the Bucks to Seattle has started. Keep being average Bucks.
