Milwaukee Bucks

  1. Zaza Pachulia to buy Bucks old court (once they are done with it)

    Nov 7, 2013, 7:15 PM EDT

    milwaukee-bucks court

    It is a really good idea — the Milwaukee Bucks went and hired an artist to design their new court, and he came up with a throwback court honoring their days playing at the MECCA. It was very clever. Only problem was, it wasn’t finished properly, so much so that in a preseason game it…

  2. The Extra Pass: Three new faces and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 7, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Milwaukee Bucks

    One of the best parts about the start of any season is the chance to get familiar with the new faces in the league. Guys like Michael Carter-Williams and Victor Oladipo will get plenty of publicity, so let’s dig a little deeper and look at a few other players that are impressing in their first…

  3. Wednesday Night NBA Grades: Larry Sanders out of action, and Tony Parker’s big fourth quarter

    Nov 7, 2013, 1:06 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v San Antonio Spurs - Game Four

    Our grades from Wednesday night around the NBA, or what you missed while securing funds in advance of twitter’s IPO … Larry Sanders. Apologies for starting things off on a negative note, and even more so for discussing someone who didn’t even play in Wednesday night’s action. But signing a contract worth a guaranteed $44 million…

  4. Report: Bucks’ Larry Sanders out Wednesday, being investigated for role in bar fight

    Nov 6, 2013, 7:07 PM EDT

    Larry Sanders

    This summer the Milwaukee Bucks pulled out the checkbook to make Larry Sanders a franchise anchor — a four years, $44 million extension to his rookie deal. This is not what they had in mind. Sanders is out on Wednesday night against the Cavaliers with a thumb injury, it was announced before the game. But…

  5. Bucks’ Caron Butler fined $15,000 for “obscene gesture” against Boston

    Nov 6, 2013, 1:30 PM EDT

    Avery Bradley, Caron Butler

    As the Bucks were knocking off the Celtics last Friday night, Caron Butler celebrated a big bucket with the “Sam Cassell big balls dance.” The league doesn’t like that gesture and is cracking down — Butler was fined $15,000 by the league Wednesday for the dance. He’s not the first, Andray Blatche of the Nets…

  6. Tuesday And-1 Links: Adam Silver talks the Sports VU cameras

  7. Kevin Love among four NBA players to get flop warning

    Nov 4, 2013, 2:50 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    Kevin Love is leading the league in points per game (29.7), second in rebounds per game (14.7) and so he wanted to be one of the first to get a flopping warning from the league also. Well, congratulations, you’ve done it. Love was one of four players to get a flopping warning from the league…

  8. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Pacers, Rockets, T-Wolves and Sixers on top

    Nov 4, 2013, 2:04 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New Orleans Pelicans

    The first few weeks of the Power Rankings see crazy fluctuations — teams that aren’t really that good start off hot, teams that are good start cold, so teams bounce up and down the rankings like they are on a bungee cord the first few weeks. Eventually things find their level. But this week was…

  9. Bucks’ Larry Sanders not thrilled with reduced role under coach Drew

    Nov 4, 2013, 1:09 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks - Game Three

    This summer the Milwaukee Bucks opened up their checkbooks to make Larry Sanders a franchise cornerstone — a four-year, $44 million contract extension. He’s a budding young defensive big man, a guy who can protect the rim or guard in space on the pick-and-roll. But he’s finding it hard to do that from the bench…

  10. The Extra Pass Weekend Roundup: Seven storylines from Week 1 and Sunday recaps

  11. Toughest guys to guard on pick-and-roll? Sanders says Nash, Rose, Conley

    Nov 1, 2013, 1:56 PM EDT

    Steve Nash, Chris Paul

    Larry Sanders got a big four-year, $44 million extension from the Milwaukee Bucks this summer because he can defend — he can protect the rim and block shots, but he also is quite good showing out and shutting of drives on the pick-and-roll. Talking with him after the Bucks season-opening loss to the Knicks, Zach…

  12. Brandon Knight likely out Friday night for Bucks with hamstring injury

    Nov 1, 2013, 11:26 AM EDT

    Brandon Knight

    Brandon Knight played just 1:45 of the Bucks season opener against the Knicks Wednesday night before he tweaked his hamstring and had to leave the game, not to return. Now he is likely out Friday night as the Bucks are in Boston — officially he is doubtful so there is a chance, but a slim…

  14. Report: Donald Sterling almost blew up Bledsoe trade, Clippers summer

    Oct 28, 2013, 11:13 PM EDT

    Donald Sterling, Rochelle Sterling

    Things are different around the Clippers organization now compared to even five years ago, let alone a decade. It’s not just the winning on the court, there is more professionalism around the entire organization. But they are still owned by Donald Sterling, the man who is the reason for the decades of futility. This summer…

    To celebrate a new season, we bring you a new set of NBA Power Rankings from PBT. Let the kvetching about your ranking begin! Just remember that this is an exercise in fun — these are meaningless as the NBA has a playoff system to decide who is best. What sport would rely on journalist’s…

  16. Greece wanted nothing to do with his family until NBA noticed Antetokounmpo’s basketball skills

    Oct 23, 2013, 11:27 AM EDT

    Giannis Antetokounmpo Corey Brewer

    The life of an NBA rookie such as Giannis Antetokounmpo has its challenges. Sure, suddenly he’s the rookie with some buzz after showing flashes of his seemingly limitless potential while getting a little run with the Bucks this preseason; but come the regular season he will spend a lot of time on the bench behind…

  17. Dirk Nowitzki warned Mark Cuban the Mavericks had big problems before last season

    Oct 23, 2013, 10:15 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    The Mavericks were so desperate to find a point guard last season, they started Darren Collison, Mike James, Derek Fisher and Dominique Jones in a futile attempt to keep throwing floor generals at the wall until one stuck. O.J. Mayo started all 82 games at shooting guard, but his play did not impress Rick Carlisle.…

    Oct 23, 2013, 8:46 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    Last season: For the first time in his career, Dirk Nowitzki missed a chunk of the season due to major knee surgery. Dallas started 12-15 without their star German then promptly dropped 8-of-9 after his return, putting them in a deep hole. The result was the players grew “.500 beards” they let grow like they…

    Oct 22, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets Introduce Dwight Howard

    Last season: The Rockets began the year with the somewhat surprising trade for James Harden — surprising because of the Thunder’s choice to deal him so soon instead of pursuing a title with him in place for one more season. It was the right call on Houston’s part, as Harden immediately turned into the offensive…

  20. Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo’s hands are freakishly large

    Oct 21, 2013, 12:39 PM EDT

    Giannis Antetokounmpo

    Giannis Antetokounmpo is a project — a guy with a fantastic frame, great athleticism and he’s shown a few skills this preseason, but it’s going to be a couple years before we know just how good the young Greek can be. What we do know now: He has freakishly large hands. All weekend NBA twitter…

    Oct 21, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    Last season: The Spurs finished with the second best record in the Western Conference, and blew through the playoffs with a 12-2 record (including sweeps against the Lakers in the first round and the Grizzlies in the Conference Finals) before facing the Heat in the NBA Finals. The series was one for the ages, with…

  22. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Phoenix Suns

    Oct 18, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Eric Bledsoe

    Last season: Believe it or not, the Suns actually had playoff aspirations when the regular season began. The front office believed that Michael Beasley would be different in Phoenix than he had been anywhere else, and mandated that he be given a chance to be a difference-maker in the lineup. Once it became clear that…

  23. PBT Roundtable: Who is poised for a breakout season?

    Oct 16, 2013, 1:17 PM EDT

    John Henson

    Each week the PBT writers sit at a virtual roundtable, just like the knights of King Arthur, drink mead and discuss the NBA topic of the day. This week’s question: Which player do you expect to have a breakout season? Kurt Helin: After spending an entire summer pumping up Toronto’s Jonas Valanciunas, I’ll go with……

  24. Evan Turner isn’t worrying about contract extension he won’t get

    Oct 15, 2013, 11:37 AM EDT

    Britain NBA Preseason Basketball

    Evan Turner is not going to get an extension to his rookie contract, and frankly he shouldn’t (unless he’s willing to take a very small number). He hasn’t shown to be an effective or efficient scorer at the NBA level. He’s an NBA bench guy because he rebounds, passes and generally plays solid ball, but…

  25. Bucks center Ekpe Udoh out 4-6 weeks after knee surgery

    Oct 11, 2013, 7:07 PM EDT

    Ekpe Udoh

    The Bucks thought they were going to have some good depth along the front line this season, but it hasn’t taken long for injuries to change that. Backup center Ekpe Udoh will be out 4-6 weeks following arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Friday, the team announced. Udoh played a limited role with the Bucks…
