    “Nah.”

  4. Ersan Ilyasova reportedly wants out of Milwaukee

    Feb 15, 2014, 2:00 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Chicago Bulls

    Ersan Ilyasova is Milwaukee’s longest tenured player. He’s been there for the mediocre times, and he’s been there for the slightly worse than mediocre times. Over the course of five and a half seasons, the 26 year old forward has had ample opportunity to see exactly how the Bucks operate on every level. Basically, Ilyasova has…

  5. Bucks’ Larry Sanders suffers broken eye socket, out indefinitely

    Feb 10, 2014, 7:53 PM EDT

    larry sanders

    This has just not been Larry Sanders’ year. The season after signing a four-year, $44 million extension he suffered torn ligaments in his thumb, something he suffered in a bar fight. He came back and argued with teammates, he never seemed to have the full trust of coach Larry Drew, although he has played better…

  6. Bucks to get Larry Sanders back Friday night.

    Dec 26, 2013, 6:26 PM EDT

    Larry Sanders

    Friday night, Larry Sanders gets a reset on his season. He didn’t like the way this season started. Over the summer he signed a new four-year, $44 million deal and management talked about him as a cornerstone defensive anchor for the team. Then new coach Larry Drew cut his minutes, going instead with Zaza Pachulia…

  7. Bucks down another big man, Zaza Pachulia out month with fracture in foot

    Dec 9, 2013, 6:39 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Boston Celtics

    The Milwaukee Bucks were already without Larry Sanders, who needed surgery to repair torn ligaments in his hand after a bar fight, and now this. Zaza Pachulia will be out at least four weeks with a broken bone in his foot, coach Larry Drew announced Monday. It is the calcaneus bone, what most of us…

  8. The Extra Pass: Gumbo and The Brow, and Tuesday night’s recap

    Nov 27, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans v Memphis Grizzlies

    The New Orleans Pelicans roster was assembled with all the care of an inebriated person making gumbo. Three ball-dominant guards in addition to the ball-dominant guard we just drafted? Sure, that will work. A stretch 4 and a stretch 5? Toss ‘em in. The individual pieces in New Orleans are talented, to be certain, but…

  9. Dirk Nowitzki warned for flop vs. Nuggets (VIDEO)

    Nov 26, 2013, 7:20 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    Dirk Nowitzki, welcome to the club. That’s the club of star players who have gotten a warning from the league about flopping. Nowitzki earned his in the third quarter of the Mavericks’ loss to Denver Monday night, when Darrell Arthur closed out and contested the jumper and Nowitzki fell like he was reenacting the Kennedy…

  10. Caron Butler latest in long list of Bucks sidelined with injury

    Nov 15, 2013, 12:51 PM EDT

    Caron Butler

    The Milwaukee Bucks are one banged up team. Point guards Brandon Knight and Luke Ridnour are not medially cleared to play Friday night (that could change with Ridnour, but he was out as of this writing). Reserve shooting guard Gary Neal has a foot injury that kept him out of the last game. Small forward…

  11. Bucks’ Larry Sanders has thumb surgery for injury from bar fight, out six weeks

    Nov 11, 2013, 7:49 PM EDT

    Larry Sanders

    The bar fight that Bucks star Larry Sanders was in has become very costly. Very. Monday he had surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right thumb suffered in that incident and he will now be out about six weeks, something the team announced. The surgery was performed by Dr. Curt Crimmins, a hand…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

    One week down, 23 more to go. Let’s look at some of the emerging storylines from the first week of the season. A Sneaky MVP Candidate Emerges There’s a real struggle to discern what’s real and what isn’t in the early part of the season, and the standings are almost a totem of sorts. If…

  18. 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…

  19. Bucks Ersan Ilyasova will miss time with sprained ankle

    Oct 9, 2013, 2:13 PM EDT

    Ersan Ilyasova

    The good news is there is nothing broken. Two sets of X-rays found no structural damage. But don’t expect to see Ersan Ilyasova suiting up for the Bucks for a couple of weeks or more. One of the league’s most underrated stretch fours sprained his ankle Tuesday night against the Cavaliers and had to leave…

    Oct 1, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks - Game Four

    Last season: It was the end of an era. Josh Smith‘s final season in Atlanta ended the only way it really could: with plenty of ill-advised shot attempts, tons of highlight-reel plays, and probably most importantly, another early playoff exit. After a first round loss to the Indiana Pacers in six games, it was fair to yet…

  21. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Milwaukee Bucks

    Sep 27, 2013, 9:19 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks - Game Three

    Last season: The Bucks went 38-44, reaching the playoffs despite a mid-season firing of Scott Skiles. Their high-scoring and high-shooting backcourt of Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis defined the team, but it was really as a team without a strong identity. Before the playoffs began, Jennings predicted the Bucks would beat the Heat in six…

  22. Report: Knicks to open the season at home against Bucks

    Aug 5, 2013, 9:35 PM EDT

    New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony reacts after hitting a three-point shot against the Boston Celtics in the first quarter of Game 1 of their NBA Eastern Conference Quarterfinals basketball playoff series in New York

    This is the final schedule leak you’ll receive from us, so soak it up in all of its August glory. The New York Knicks will open the season at home against the rebuilding Milwaukee Bucks, according to a report from Marc Berman of the New York Post. While many teams in big markets have marquee…

  23. Hawks claim Gustavo Ayon off waivers

    Jul 28, 2013, 9:00 PM EDT

    ayon bucks

    The Bucks waived Gustavo Ayon a few days ago for reasons unknown, but even a big man with the most basic of skill sets on not much more than a minimum salary deal won’t last on the open market for very long. Ayon didn’t end up hitting the open market, and was claimed off waivers by the…

    Jul 25, 2013, 11:06 PM EDT

    ayon bucks

    There was a time, not that long ago, when the Bucks were of the belief that they should retain big man Gustavo Ayon for next season. Back in June, they reportedly decided to pick up his $1.5 million option. A month later, however, before the contract was set to become fully guaranteed, the team has…

    Los Angeles Clippers Introduce Chris Paul

    Teams began entering into agreements with free agent players shortly after midnight Eastern on July 1, but due to a league-imposed moratorium on activity, no deals can be officially signed until July 10. We’re almost there, and plenty of the top names available have indeed been swooped up by teams looking to make a splash…
