PODCAST: Comparing the #OwnTheFuture and #FearTheDeer Bucks, John Henson's future in Milwaukee

Like pretty much every other Bucks fan under the age of 40, the high points of my fandom have proven remarkably few and far between. There was the Big Three-era club that won 52 games and came within one game of the NBA Finals in 2001, and then...well, uh...not much else. In case you were blissfully unaware, that 2001 squad led by Glenn Robinson, Ray Allen and Sam Cassell remains...

Thon Maker Summer League Review

Draft day must have been really emotional for Thon Maker. The day started with rumors that many teams took him off their board entirely due to heavy suspicion that he was older than his listed age. Some research on Reddit suggesting Maker graduated high school in 2010 gained traction, logic compelling enough that his guardian Ed Smith addressed the speculation with Draft Express...

Did the Milwaukee Bucks improve this off-season?

Much like their regular season, the Milwaukee Bucks off-season has been rather lackluster. With the majority of the free-agency action having taken place already, the Bucks don’t have much to choose from if they look to add some free-agents.

Thon Maker commits 10 fouls in a Summer League game

It’s hard to get very far into a Thon Maker scouting report without hitting the word “raw.” The Milwaukee Bucks rookie is seven feet tall with super long arms and endless athleticism, and by all accounts he’s a hard-worker and a good kid. He’s just a little rough around the edges. Ok, maybe a lot rough around the edges. On Monday, Maker accomplished a rare feat: He fouled...
