Herro: Wins Against Milwaukee Built Huge Confidence in Heat’s Ability to Contend

Jacari McRae | May 1st, 2020

At the Covid-19 break, the Miami Heat currently sits in fourth place in the Eastern Conference standings. If the season resumes right into the playoffs, the Heat would host the Indiana Pacers in the first round. Should the Heat advance to the next round, they would likely face the Milwaukee Bucks, a team they beat twice this season. Continue reading

Stoudemire wanted to form a Big 3 with Dwyane Wade and LeBron James in Miami

Jacari McRae | July 13th, 2019

It’s been fourteen days since NBA Free Agency started and we’ve already seen plenty of stars joining forces. Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving are joining forces with the Brooklyn Nets, Kawhi Leonard and Paul George with the Los Angeles Clippers, and now Russell Westbrook and James Harden with the Houston Rockets. The league has changed since the 2000’s when stars were just trying to compete against each other. Continue reading

The Don Draper of the NBA: Does Ersan İlyasova Really Exist?

Josh Elias | May 31st, 2019

 

Ersan İlyasova is supposed to be a Turkish power forward drafted in the second round who carved out a solid enough career for himself that he’s still a decent NBA player well over a decade after being drafted. He’s known for being a good floor spacer at 6’10” while shooting 37% from behind the arc for his career and has fit in really well with Milwaukee’s system for quite a few years. This year, he averaged a sliver over 18 minutes per game in Milwaukee’s run to the Eastern Conference Finals – the furthest run he’s been a part of in his career.

And most of that’s true.

But there’s just one problem with that description of Ersan İlyasova. There is no Ersan İlyasova. Continue reading

Kit Shepard | May 24th, 2019

The Milwaukee Bucks needed a basket badly.

Milwaukee Bucks – Detroit Pistons Playoff Preview

Troy Pierce | April 14th, 2019

The Bucks and Pistons will tip off game one of their playoff matchup Sunday night in Milwaukee. The path each team took to get here has been very different. The Bucks have dominated the Eastern Conference from the very start of the season. Whereas, Detroit lost 7 of the final 11 games, just barely making the cut, winning their final two games of the year. While both teams rely on their stars to help them win games, both teams will need steady contributions from others to help them through the playoffs.

Player Spotlight: Malcolm Brogdon

Coach Treal | March 23rd, 2019

This week I have decided to shine the spotlight on the Milwaukee Bucks third year combo-guard Malcolm Brogdon. As I begin putting this entire article together Malcolm, unfortunately, he received an MRI and has been diagnosed with a minor plantar fascia tear. The expectation is that he will be sidelined six-to-eight weeks according to most media reports. This is a crucial blow to not only Malcolm who was in the midst of one of a historical season but to the Bucks as well. He hopes to be back in action sometime in the playoffs depending on how far the team can go with him on the shelf.

To paraphrase the NBA’s favorite slogan, the postseason is ‘why we watch’.

NBA Christmas Games 2018: Watchers Guide and Predictions

Pranav Ramasubramanian | December 25th, 2018

Christmas is a time for family togetherness because school and work are canceled as it’s given a federal holiday for everyone including non-celebrators. NBA games on Christmas have become a tradition even for non-NBA fans because it’s the one day where all the games are nationally televised on ABC, ESPN or TNT while also being easily accessible on online platforms. The NBA is smart to market this way because it attracts a large number of viewers as they also showcase new special Christmas Day jerseys for each team involved and let the players involved design special Christmas day sneakers with unique colorways.

2018 NBA Draft Steals Predictions

Liam Romero | August 25th, 2018

In recent NBA drafts, a select number of players dominated the media before and after draft night.  Whether it was the risky pick of Ben Simmons, or the birthday conspiracy of Thon Maker in 2016, the Lonzo/Lavar Ball tirade of 2017, or the hype surrounding which big man was better, Deandre Ayton or Marvin Bagley, and even the draft stock of Trae Young in 2018’s draft. In any of these situations, these specific players dominated the NBA media outlets before and after draft night.

Are International Players On the Verge of Taking Over the NBA?

Kit Shepard | July 25th, 2018

Who is the best player in the NBA under the age of 25? Like all questions based on opinion, the answer will vary depending on who you ask. Nevertheless, there will be a few names which are mentioned frequently. For fans who love watching jaw-dropping dunks from players with superhuman athleticism, they would lean towards Giannis Antetokounmpo. If you prefer a positionless playmaker with a sky-high IQ, Ben Simmons is your pick. Those more into dominant centers would perhaps say Joel Embiid. While each of these players is in the discussion for different reasons, they have one clear characteristic in common; they are all international players.
