  1. NBA Season Preview: Milwaukee Bucks

    Sep 26, 2012, 2:01 PM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks' Ersan Ilyasova   goes up for a shot against Toronto Raptors' Alan Anderson during the second half of their NBA basketball game in Milwaukee Wisconsin

    Last season: Abort the mission! New plan! New plan! The Bucks slammed on the parking brake, wrenched the wheel and Tokyo Drifted in a new direction last season, abandoning the “all defense all the time” team built around Andrew Bogut and giving p on the fleeting hope Bogut will ever, ever be healthy. They swapped…

  2. Scott Skiles to return as Milwaukee coach next season

    May 1, 2012, 6:47 PM EST

    Scott Skiles

    Maybe you can’t picture Scott Skiles effectively coaching a backcourt of Monta Ellis and Brandon Jennings, but Herb Kohl can. And he’s the owner. The guy writing the check. So they are going to do it. Skiles will be back for another season as the Bucks head man, reports the Journal-Sentinel. Scott Skiles confirmed in…

  3. Report: Stephen Jackson, Scott Skiles are pretty much done with each other

    Feb 17, 2012, 6:20 PM EST

    Stephen Jackson

    From Gary Woelful of RacineSportsZone.com: After Stephen Jackson was benched for the second half of a game against Denver Jan. 17, I asked the Bucks veteran swingman whether he had any inkling Bucks coach Scott Skiles was going to do that. Jackson said he didn’t get any advance warning and he didn’t get any explanation…

  4. Brandon Jennings takes aim for the 40-percent mark

    Oct 14, 2011, 3:09 PM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks' Brandon Jennings waits to enter the game against Toronto Raptors in the first half of their NBA basketball game in Milwaukee, Wisconsin

    Yesterday, in a live chat on ESPN.com, Brandon Jennings lobbed an easy-as-pie piece of cake over the plate. He didn’t have to; Jennings had stopped by to pretty clearly shill for Court Grip — the new product which Dwyane Wade plugged so aggressively but a few weeks earlier — and those kinds of advertising tours…

  5. Report: Greek team makes offer to Corey Maggette

    Aug 12, 2011, 3:45 PM EST

    Corey Maggette

    Greek teams were not expected to be big players in the “grab an NBA player during the lockout” game because, well, their country’s economy is so bad it’s sucking half of Europe into the seventh level of hell with it. But at least one team is making a run. According to TalkBasket.net (who got it…

  6. Owner’s commitment to Bucks good for Hammond, Skiles

    May 13, 2011, 6:13 PM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks v New Orleans Hornets

    Herb Kohl is making changes. The United States Senator said he has decided not to seek re-election. But he remains committed to owning the Bucks, he told the Journal-Sentinel, and he is not looking for big changes there. “One thing, our coach (Scott Skiles) is as competitive as they come and so is our general…

  7. Who is the leader of the Bucks? That was part of the problem.

    Apr 17, 2011, 11:59 AM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks' Brandon Jennings waits to enter the game against Toronto Raptors in the first half of their NBA basketball game in Milwaukee, Wisconsin

    The Bucks had a lot of problems this year. They started with injuries which pushed the team’s offense on a downward spiral that ended at a point where they couldn’t throw a pea in the ocean (to steal an old Chick Hearn line). The Bucks could defend, as all Scott Skiles teams do, but their…

  8. It’s now or never for Bucks playoff push

    Mar 25, 2011, 12:04 PM EST

    Carlos Delfino

    Has any team been more disappointing this season than the Milwaukee Bucks? Injuries and their anemic offense — despite having Brandon Jennings, John Salmons and Andrew Bogut — have held them back. All the way back out of the playoffs. The Bucks are three games behind the Pacers with a dozen to play. And the…

  9. Should the Bucks be playing at a faster pace?

    Feb 2, 2011, 5:56 PM EST

    Scott Skiles

    Alex Boeder of BrewHoop thinks so: The Bucks have played 46 games. In their 23 fastest-paced games, they are 14-9. In their 23 slowest-paced games, they are 5-18. That’s a very interesting statistic, to say the least. Boeder goes on to point out that the Bucks are an excellent defensive team who rebound the ball…

  10. Bucks turn to Chris Douglas-Roberts, Ersan Ilyasova for some offense

    Dec 15, 2010, 6:52 PM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks v New Orleans Hornets

    Last season the Bucks offense was no juggernaut — they finished 23rd in the league in offensive efficiency — but especially after the addition of John Salmons midseason they scored enough points so that, paired with one of the best defenses in the league, they were a threat. This season, the Bucks defense is even…

  11. This three year old can name more Bucks players than you can

    Nov 10, 2010, 2:19 PM EST

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/VEFzdgHuASo&hl=en_US&feature=player_embedded&version=3" height="205" width="320" /]

    This 3-year-old boy can name every Bucks player and does it with almost as cute a voice as Scott Skiles. And, the kid can name Scott Skiles. Sure, he’s reading them but HE’S THREE. Reading. Knowing rosters. Get the kid a blog, it’s time. (Via the fertile mind of Tas Melas of The Basketball Jones.)

  12. Milwaukee Bucks cut Brian Skinner, open door for the Brockness Monster

    Oct 26, 2010, 3:35 PM EST

    Jon Brockman

    The Milwaukee Bucks released 12-year NBA veteran Brian Skinner in their final round of training camp cuts, and it’s probably for the best. Skinner hasn’t been all that productive for a majority of those 12 years, and when your primary contribution to the league is measured in facial hair, it might be time to hang…

  13. The Saturday Starting Five: Your Season Assured

    Oct 2, 2010, 2:00 PM EST

    Hey, so, you’re stuck with me on the weekends, so I thought we’d put together something you can count on. Every weekend here at PBT we’ll have the Saturday Starting Five. Five elements, chosen thematically (so I’m not just basically vomiting words onto a screen for you) and brought for discussion about the NBA. Our…

  14. Andrew Bogut not being held back in exhibition games

    Oct 1, 2010, 11:53 AM EST

    To realize how big this really is, think back to your reaction when you first saw Andrew Bogut go down last April 3. Remember that feeling in your stomach… Andrew Bogot has been cleared to play without restriction in upcoming preseason games for the Bucks, according to the Journal-Sentinel. “I’m just not overdoing my elbow…

  15. NBA Season Preview: The Milwaukee Bucks

    Sep 23, 2010, 2:11 PM EST

    Last season: The Bucks flew through the home stretch to finish with a 46-36 record, but the train carrying deer to be feared was derailed by a season-ending injury to Andrew Bogut. Head Coach: Scott Skiles, who lived up to his reputation as an excellent defensive coach by making the Bucks’ D the second best…

  16. Corey Maggette may miss part of training camp, should be ready for season

    Sep 21, 2010, 1:52 PM EST

    Corey Maggette had an ankle operation back on July 1. It’s one of those “clean out the bone chips and scar tissue” scoping jobs that many NBA veterans have done in the summer. However, recovery from this may keep Maggette out of the start of Bucks camp, coach Scott Skiles told the Journal Sentinel. “He’s…

  17. Epitaph for Michael Redd's career as a Buck

    Jul 22, 2010, 11:04 AM EST

    The Bucks have made all kinds of moves this summer, and none of them have looked particularly good for Michael Redd. Re-signing John Salmons, a Redd quasi-replacement, was a start. Then they picked up Corey Maggette via trade, who would certainly hack into the minutes of a healthy Redd. Chris Douglas-Roberts and Keyon Dooling, too,…

  18. Report: Milwaukee Bucks interested in the recently released Luther Head

    Jul 16, 2010, 3:01 PM EST

    The Milwaukee Bucks re-signed John Salmons to a five-year, $39 million deal. They picked up Drew Gooden for $32 million over five. They acquired Corey Maggette and the $30.8 million remaining on his contract over the next three seasons. They traded for the Nets’ Chris Douglas Roberts. And now, according to Chris Tomasson of NBA…

  19. NBA Summer League: Notes on Hawks-Bucks

    Jul 16, 2010, 1:41 PM EST

    Quick thoughts on Hawks-Bucks at Las Vegas Summer League Thursday night… Larry Sanders looks like another first-round steal for John Hammond and the Bucks organization. With head coach Scott Skiles dressed in cargo shorts looking on from the comfortable courtside seats next to Hammond across from the Bucks bench, Sanders brought incredible defensive energy, tallying…

  20. NBA Playoffs Bucks Hawks Game 7: Hawks too strong, too good, too much to fear the deer

    May 2, 2010, 4:30 PM EST

    In the playoffs, how you advance doesn’t matter, as long as you advance. And while the Milwaukee Bucks have nothing to be ashamed of, putting on a great performance in spite of missing Andrew Bogut, the Hawks will move on to face the Orlando Magic. Lucky them. The Hawks defeated the Bucks 95-74 to advance…

  21. Mike Woodson may be done in Atlanta. It's probably time.

    Apr 29, 2010, 11:18 AM EST

    Embarrassing. What has happened to the Atlanta Hawks in the last three games is embarrassing. Not so much the game three loss — Milwaukee had the energy of the home crowd, made some adjustments, shot well and got the win. The Bucks are a solid, well coached team. It happens. But three straight losses? In…

  22. NBA Playoffs: The one where the Bucks are hoping for a playoff miracle against the Hawks

    Apr 17, 2010, 11:08 AM EST

    Three weeks ago, Atlanta and Boston were jockeying for the three seed not so much to avoid Cleveland in the second round (although that’s part of it) but to avoid Milwaukee in the first round. Nobody wanted a piece of the Bucks, they were on fire. Brandon Jennings was playing well at the point, John…
