Fear the DEER!
The Milwaukee Bucks are off to a slow start to the beginning of the 2010-11 NBA Season. However, don’t count out the Buck’s in the Eastern Conference playoff hunt. As Milwaukee turned head’s in the second half of the year last season, look for them to do it again. Point Guard Brandon Jennings has one year of experience under his belt, as he proved to all the critics he’s got game. Jennings took an interesting path as he turned down the University of Arizona while going to play overseas. Jennings had his coming out party when he threw up 55 points against the Warriors last season. Although Jennings was apart of the huge success last year, there was a bigger piece in my mind. Center Andrew Bogut got snubbed from the All-Star game in my mind, and he thought that too. Bogut averaged a double-double in his last 20 games, until the gruesome arm injury. Milwaukee lost Bogut for the rest of the season, meaning he would miss the playoff’s. The Bucks take ATL to game seven, and with a healthy Andrew Bogut I think they have a great shot to knock off the Atlanta Hawks. Coach Scott Skiles just got an extension into next year, along with Executive of the Year John Hammond. The popular saying in Milwaukee is “Feer the Deer”, I think everyone should get used to that as I see the Bucks making a strong playoff push again this season.
