Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jabari Parker of the Milwaukee Bucks are quickly becoming one of the most exciting young tandems in the NBA. The duo connected on a highlight play that featured a slow motion Statue of Liberty pass and a dunk over Detroit Pistons‘ Josh Smith – who must be losing his athleticism.
During the third quarter, the Greek Freak, who is nearly seven-foot tall...
Jabari Parker had himself a highlight, courtesy of a dunk over Josh Smith. On a Milwaukee fastbreak, Giannis Antetokounmpo went at Josh Smith before passing it off to Parker for the flush.

In Saturday night’s game between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Washington Wizards, old man Paul Pierce tried to do something daring. He tried to go for a two-handed stuff on a drive. What was waiting for him wasn’t exactly pleasant.

A lot of focus on the Milwaukee Bucks this season has been centered on No. 2 overall draft pick Jabari Parker and new head coach Jason Kidd.
However, it’s fourth-year point guard Brandon Knight who has stolen the show.
The former Kentucky Wildcat is currently posting career highs in...
If Larry Sanders is to become an all-star player in the NBA, he will need to further develop his offensive game.
Sanders is an incredible athlete and great defender, but he is not much of an offensive threat. His scoring usually comes from dunks and put-back opportunities.
All-star caliber players such as Dwight Howard, DeMarcus Cousins, Anthony Davis and Tim Duncan are all prolific...

Brandon Knight somehow missed a wide open layup at the end of overtime Wednesday in the Bucks-Nets game. With the game tied at 105 and just a few seconds left, Knight got a steal and raced the other direction for a layup. Perhaps because he was in a race to beat the clock, Knight threw...Read More
Brandon Knight went from “hero” to “goat” in a matter of seconds during Wednesday night’s Bucks-Nets game.
Knight stole a pass with just four seconds remaining in the first overtime period, and he was off to the races. The game was tied at 105-105 at the time, and only a layup stood between the Bucks and a thrilling victory.
The Bucks guard could taste the win as he...
Despite missing a key starter in center Larry Sanders, the Milwaukee Bucks’ great bench depth proved the team can compete with any team in the NBA with a win on Tuesday against the New York Knicks.
Sanders missed Tuesday’s game with a thigh bruise injury. Backup center Zaza Pachulia started in place of Sanders.
The Bucks’ bench play has kept them in many games this season...
At just 19 years old, Giannis Antetokounmpo has shown tremendous growth as a player in his second year in the NBA.
Jason Kidd has given Antetokounmpo the same amount of playing time as he had his rookie season, and Antetokounmpo’s points per game average has nearly doubled since last year. Antetokounmpo averaged 6.8 points per game last year in 77 games played, and through nine...
Potential is a slippery slope. It is a variable-laden, ticking time bomb.
Too often players are boasted and prodded around as the future of the NBA, and then they end up hovering along the D-League wall.
Then there are players who fly – somewhat – under the radar. They excite with flashes of skill and physical prowess.
Giannis Antetokounmpo has the potential to be the best...
