Does anyone think the Bucks can make the playoffs this year? They have a solid line-up now, and I didnt even realize it

PG - Luke Ridnour
SG - Michael Redd
SF - Richard Jefferson
PF - Charlie Villanueva
C - Andrew Bogut

Looks pretty ok. What do you all think.. They have to compete with the likes of the Wizards, Pacers, and the Heat for those 7 and 8 spots..

Solid mediocre lineup yes.. RJ had better people around him in the Nets.. Why you think Bucks will be any good?

They wont make the playoffs and it wont be close. I have Orlando, Boston, Cleveland, Detroit, Philly, Washington, Atlanta, Toronto, and New Jersey

I think they'll make the playoffs for sure. Bogut, unless Skiles ****s him up like he did all Bulls bigs, could be a 20 and 10 center this year or next. Skiles is a great coach and they're not a horrible defensive squad so I could easily see them making the playoffs with the talent they have.

If the Nets make the playoffs, I'll sell my house.

The East has improved vastly this off season. They have a pretty decent squad, but I don't see a bench. They could sneak in as a 8th seed though, depends on the injuries.

Yes it has and the Bucks are one of those teams. They have an ok bench IMO. Joe Alexander could have a pretty solid rookie season. I think 7, 8, and 9 will be between the Heat, Hawks, and Bucks.

I could see them grabbing the 8th seed, I doubt they can get anything more than that though. I see the Heat getting the 7th seed.

whoever thinks they wont make the playoffs doesnt know NBA basketball.

the Bucks have a TEAM

and i completely understand the Mo trade.

Luke Ridnour is a pass first point guard, Mo Williams was a shoot first.

but with GREAT scorers in both Redd and Jefferson, Williams would be a cancer to the flow of this offense.

Charlie V is very underrated and is a Lamar Odom type forward.

And Bogut is also very underrated and could be a 17 and 10 C next year no doubt.

They have a decent bench and I can see Ramon Sessions starting at PG in their near future.

he had a 28, 8, and 14 game last year, and he also had a 24 assist game as well!! all in the last week of the season, those aren't flukes.


so yes i see the Bucks sneaking in at 6th to 8th seed.

I see them as the 9th or 10th seed. It's possible that they can make it, but they got a lot to prove.

I see them battling for the 8th for sure. It's a toss up between Miami and Milwaukee for me.

Then who you have missing out. The Celtics, Pistons, Magic, Sixers, Wizards, Raps, and the Cavs are better than the Heat and Bucks.

They have a balanced hard working and antiego starting 5 and decent bench, so i say yes.

There are 4 teams Celtics,Sixers,Magic,Pistons with their spot assured and 3 Pacers,Bobcats,Hawks Already Doomed so thats 4 spots for 8 teams . they can take the last one i think.

No, they imo, will be a 9-10 seed, they don't have that bad of a line-up, but no good defense, and no chemistry,

They Need a Stronger Power Foward to Compete, even in the East. They wont miss playoffs by much aniway.

Well, let's see who is better out East: Detroit, Boston, Cleveland, Toronto, Orlando, Philadelphia, Washington, Atlanta, and Miami. I don't see the Bucks making it to the playoffs this year.

They need to add a better big man to their roster.

We're still working on an offer to get rid of C-Vill and others maybe for a big man and I think they will make the play-offs come on our roster is so much better this year and Miami is not better than us
