The Bucks fell to 2-5 following a loss to the Hornets on Saturday night and guard Brandon Jennings hinted that there may be problems in the locker room.

"We just need to go out there and play basketball," Jennings said. "Anybody can talk in the locker room."

Milwaukee looked sluggish for a majority of the game and Jennings said his team could have used some of the Hornets' energy.

"It was just an ugly game for us," he said. "It's starting to get a little bit ridiculous now because every day it's like it's something -- shots not falling and we just all break down. Some people are probably not on the same page, or I don't know what it is, but it's getting a little bit annoying now.

"When things aren't going right, it just seems like the energy level goes all the way down. We have got to find something before it gets too late and it gets a little ugly."

Doesn't really say that Jennings is the problem.

He said there is a problem but it doesn't really mean he is the problem.


He probably is but we can't really assume.

the problem is they overachieved last year and raised the expectations.

Nope. The problem is that Salmons sucks just as bad as Michael Redd did last year in the starting SG role early this season. The problem is that Salmons can't play well when it s expected of him at the beginning of the season, just like last year in Chicago. The problem is that they need a SG that can be counted on to produce with regularity, even if it means moving Delfino there and making Maggs the starter.

Dude did u just read what you just said?

Isn't it as a result of Salmons "improved" play that they overachieved? Isn't that the reason why they played so well and now that he has fallen back down t earth so are they.

Thanks for backing up my point.

however, jennings is shooting .391% from 2 and .29% from three with a efg% of .437 and he is calling out other people about shooting badly?

Salmons, is one weird player. He only plays good for the first half of season with a new team; see Kings, Bulls, and now Bucks. They overachieved last year, they don't have much talent. Jennings is good with a great future, but needs to learn how to play EFFICIENTLY. They have good defense, with not a lot of offense. They can only win games if Jennings can nail the 3 ball at a efficient rate.

Bucks are not as good as their record was last year. Salmons is back to himself. He will play terrible for the rest of the year, unless he gets traded to a new team half-way through the season.

Bucks need Jennings to play efficiently, Bogut to stay healthy, and get points off their role players.

They overachieved last season resulting into higher expectations this season. It's that simple folks. Not to mention the fact that Salmons is off to another slow start and his good ole' buddy (Jennings) is shooting .391% FG, .296% 3FG while having an ORtg of 101.

Maybe Jennings should shoot over 40% for once in his life.

Its been only 7 games. With the exception of one game Bucks had a chance to win going into the last minute of each game. Once the shots are goin in more consistent(which will happen) they will be winning those kind of games.

Jennings is young, so he is bound to say stupid things after a loss. Chemistry isnt just there yet, but it will be.

Skiles loses his team after 3 years, usually. Right on schedule.

Salmons also missed all of pre season and is still getting back in shape and getting his legs underneath him. He doesn't need to put up the numbers he did last year when he came to Milwaukee. They added other pieces to help score. There's a lot of new faces on this team. Just give it some time people. It's been 7 ****ing games.

your right about that but still its way too early to condemn a team epically if the month isnt even over yet if by mid dec there still struggling either they have to shake up the roster or there not good enough for the playoffs

I put Salmons in the same category of Charlie V. They get payed and they decide when they want to play.

jennings = chucker

maggette = chucker

salmons its two players. ones good, ones not. you never know which shows up.

im guessing its a chemistry thing because they look good on paper.

Add the fact Salmons got payed and has nothing to play for, not a good sign. Bogut has been a beast though.

Yeah. Milwaukee has overacheived. They don't have as much talent as people think.

It seems like they are too perimeter oriented to begin with...And coupled with bad shooting, a team can't win that way.

It probably is a chemistry thing. Salmons, Maggette, and Jennings all are pretty inefficient.

Someone should have said "x2" or "this" for your post by now so I'll do it.

Personally, they have to continue to learn how to play with each other. Jennings is only 20,21 so he's still VERY young. also chris douglas roberts is hurt and I think hed bring some swag to this swagger less team.

I hope your not serious...CDR was benched on a 12 win team last year. Ive watched him play he is nothing to get excited about he brings nothing, he's lazy, plays no defense, isnt consistent, is soft. He always complains on Twitter like a child and not a professional. I wouldn't get my hopes up if I were you. Avery didn't want him, the nets chose not to extend him so they signed him and traded him to the Bucks for a second rounder. There is a reason CDR nearly went undrafted in 08.

Wasn't CDR an early or mid 2nd round pick? I highly doubt he would have gone undrafted.
