Last time the Bucks had a 7-0 start, was back in 1971 with Careem in the team, now the Bucks are about to have an 8-0 start as they have a much easier game to play tomorrow before they play against the Celtics on Friday and a game against GSW soon to follow...

Confidence looks off the roof after an easy win against the Raptors despite Giannis absence and the Bucks put scary figures on the board having the best margin in the league with 14.8 pts per and scoring more than 120 pts per...

Yet, the Bucks aren't stil playing their best, since the new coach is with the team for too short a time as to fully implement the new tactics on the roster...

-How far this season's Bucks are going?

-When and in which game first defeat comes?

-Can the Bucks take the East and play to the finals?

-Will they do more than 60 wins?

-What addition is required on the roster, so that the Bucks can be able to beat GSW in the finals?

Too early to tell, and they have guys who can't possibly sustain their play, but the Bucks are pretty good.

53 wins this year, Boston or Toronto will knock them out in round 2. I say that only because I think both teams have more talent. But that could change as the years goes on, again, it's super early.

There is zero chance they could play with GS btw. Just stop it. The Warriors 4th best player just put up 52 in 3 quarters last night.

Remember my reply to you, before the season started, that I was saying to you that the Bucks will be first in the NBA in shooting and making 3s, among all other NBA teams?

You was strongly opposing my quote on the matter, but you seem to have forgotten that subject, after you've proven totally ignorant on the matter and me 100% right...

I seems to me that your biased "oppinion", doesn't matter much... The Bucks will exceed 60 wins this season, simply because a team that scores more than 120pts per, can't win less...

If they can challenge GSW, is a different matter... IMO, they need to add Butler as to achieve this and that's where the FO will be targeting next...

Never the less, the Bucks defense was phenomenal last night.... After all, there aren't many defenses that can keep Butler down to scoring ...4pts (!!!) and this much you could conclude after the game in MIN...

I remember the TV camera showing Butler's face as last plan out of that game... I could almost reed his mind through his eyes saying: "Bloody hell... If I could only be a part of this team..."!!!

It's one thing to be a fan of your team and another to think they are somehow perfect and every other player wants to play there.

The Bucks are a good team, but they are still in Wisconsin right?

Just enjoy the team because it never lasts and there is always disappointment at some point.

-How far this season's Bucks are going? Championship

-When and in which game first defeat comes? Never 82-0

-Can the Bucks take the East and play to the finals? Yes, they can beat GSW in 4!

-Will they do more than 60 wins? more, 82-0

-What addition is required on the roster, so that the Bucks can be able to beat GSW in the finals? none, they can beat GSW now without Giannis, they are stacked!

Again, must be youth here. Buying into preseason and 7 games is ridiculous. No way your guys sustain what they are doing. None.

The Bucks need to prove themselves over a sustained amount of time.

I never said that the Bucks are perfect... that is you putting in my mouth, To the contra... I clearly say that the Bucks should add Butler as to be able to challenge GSW...

There is no need to mention Wisconcin either as being the Bucks home, MIL now has the best arena and premisses in the world and millions of fans all over the world following Giannis and the team for that matter... If you look at the TV rights that are distributed to the Bucks are among the highest within NBA teams and the viewer numbers hit off the roof in each and every game...

Also... Giannis will end up 3rd in endorsements this season among marketable players...

I can see the jealousy and meanness that all this causes to other teams fans, but I will rather stick with the opinion of Magic Johnson, who was finned from the NBA for saying in the press that "Giannis will surely land the title to Milwaukee"...

Probably the same reasons they didn't keep Randle, or Nance, or Clarkson...

The Lakers & GSW have this idea, that competing for the championship is rather BOUGHT by buying four TOP-5 AllStars, rather than building up a TOP team that plays real basketball and is build from scratch...

I'd rather have a team like the Bucks competing like David, rather than have 100 championships with 5 Goliaths playing in the roster... where is the fan in this?

The Bucks AND THE RAPTORS, proved yesterday that they are TEAMS... with Giannis & Kwahi being the best player & leader being absent... Most other teams without their leader are a circus...

Lopez doesn't put up the "right" numbers. He's a good player would doesn't pass the shallow eye test.

People were all over me for saying the over for the Pels. People are learning.

The Warriors bought 5 top all-stars? Curry, Klay, and Green were all drafted, KD came with a discount to play the way he wanted to play, and Cousins came begging to shame the rest of the league (and hasn't played a second yet).

And the Bucks ...

Middleton: free-agent.
Lopez: free-agent
Bledsoe: free-agent
Ilyasova: free-agent
Snell: free-agent

Yeah, the Bucks don't try to improve their team by bringing people in from the outside.

No doubt the Warriors are lucky, but no need to be delusional.

Would GSW have won the later two if KD was playing against them?

But Ok... I'll take it back for GSW... they are no where near the Lakers circus...

Also... Snell is no free agent for another 3 seasons and both Middleton and Bledsoe have said that they are going nowhere other than this team... Giannis has also signed a team friendly contract, so that the core of the team stays together... We have the best locker room in the league... at least that much you should know... we arefamous for that.

I guess it all depends on what the team needs to add from the previous season... doesn't it? It will not be many and certainly not TOP-10 all stars... Bucks won't ever pay lux tax....

What I can surely say is that the Bucks are in talks for Butler and for a back up PG as to add before the trade deadline this season...

If we can't trade for Butler, it will be another wing and a back up PG.... Next season it will be ..."small" if we have a starting wing this season, or a "bigger" trade for a wing, if the wing we get this season won't be of "starting level"...

All returns the Bucks will offer in possible trades this season, will be deep roster players with 2nd team guys included only in the positions that are to be upgraded...

We are blessed to have one of the deepest and most talented roster in the league that goes down to at least 14 players being easy to trade...

You mean like playing a Bledsoe / kwahi / Middleton / Giannis / VAL starting roster?

I wouldn't disagree with you if that is what you mean, but wouldn't a Bledsoe, Middleton, Butler, Giannis, Voucevic starting roster be equally good and then avoid the merging?

...and it's feasible too by the deadline if the FO would care to look into it...

Iím seeing a 1st round loss or second round spanking by the Celtics or 6ers.

Bucks pushed Celtics to 7 games with lousy coach Prunty. Kidd successor. Bud is helping greatly. Yes the league will figure something out to slow us down and get us to miss a ton of threes. Heck Giannis been average and was player of the week already. Also our starters not getting like 40 minutes a night. Our rebounding is way better and were forcing teams to take deep twos while we let it fly from down town.

Sounds like we reversed what we did last year. Were making teams look like their coach by Kidd while we shoot threes like crazy. That's how teams beat us last year. Bucks gave up corner threes. Also our rebounding last year was lousy. Yeah we wont wont keep this up. Teams will figure out Bud and the Bucks. But it took a while for teams to adjust when Stevens first started coaching Celtics as well.

Budenholzer has really turned their defense around. They were middle of the pack in defensive efficiency last year, but this year they're 2nd. If they can maintain that, I can see them as a top 3 seed in East with 55+ wins.

My thoughts too... it's the defense and rebounding that makes a huge difference to this season's bucks... Long shooting has helped for the end result, but many are mistaken if that's all they see in the Bucks offense... Bucks are amazing in playing the pick and roll too...

With 11% of the season now gone, the Bucks are back to lead the East having an 8-1 record, after beating the Kings 144 to 109, with Giannis having his second triple double this season and the last 8 mins of the game being "garbage time"...

Next for the Bucks, is a demanding 4 game trip to the west, before the team returns to "normal" games as to complete the 1st quarter of the season.

A record of 15-5 or better for the first quarter, should keep the Bucks in pace to achive no less than 60 wins this season...

Because your posts are provocative perhaps?

I guess posting nonesense like predicting that the Bucks will end the season having a record of 82-0, makes the post procative enough and laughable, beyond the nonesense that any other troll posts...

I would therefore suggest for you to stop provocating all the other trolls and avoid quoting or replying to them...

Although it was me bullying on them from the first moment as to prove them trolls in their own mirror... they just can't accept the humiliation they have had by refusing championship run players offered to them, for their rubbish that strangle to have their team in the playoffs, although they have Lebron added...

Iīll be so happy after we throw 130+ on them in our visit to L.A. and will bully & humiliate them even more afterwards...

I guess some people were against my proposal of trading Ball and Ingram + useless Deng + useless Zubac, for Bledsoe and Middleton and Henson...

Well... my propsal would have been declined by the Bucks FO, although it would surely have had Magic"jumping of his chair"...

Although it was me bullying on them from the first moment as to prove them trolls in their own mirror... they just can't accept the humiliation they have had by refusing championship run players offered to them, for their rubbish that strangle to have their team in the playoffs, although they have Lebron added...

Iīll be so happy after we throw 130+ on them in our visit to L.A. and will bully & humiliate them even more afterwards...

Trolls are always fan to tortutre and play yo-yo with their brains... so enjoyable... just so enjoyable!

They could get much better than that in a deal for Lonzo and Ingram

Negative on that. I mean not to my knowledge. IF you un-perma him, I'll make a call to em and let him cause some hell. Probably would be good for the site. The site eeds all the crazies it can get. for those wondering why he got perma'd- I'm pretty sure it was for "blank breaking news; so and so signs with lakers" and redirected to adut sites. IIRC

Your a mod. you have the IP adresses and my location, and his Buckails probaby. IF anyone thinks I give enough of a **** to create a dupe, I wouldn't take long vacations like I have.

The Bucks start a crucial mini series of four games in a trip to the West... It's against the Blazers, GSW, Clippers and Spurs... I expect we can do no worst than winning two out of these games, which will keep the team in track for a 60 win season...

Via what odds maker? Not a single one I can see. Bovada sort of sets the course for online gaming and they still have the Bucks 4th in the East to win the title. Still behind the Sixers. I would have them 3rd, personally. But would not at any point have them higher. The Celtics will hit their stride in 2019 after the rust wears off Hayward + they gain synergy, and the Raptors are simply a better team.

I don't know what the Bucks odds were to start the year right now, but considering I just caught you in a lie that they were currently behind Boston when they are significantly behind Toronto as well (and behind Philly via most major outlets) I'm not sure why I would trust that either.

Probably not worth getting in another arguement with him, but what the heck. For everyone's info, bucksalis prediction for the bucks right before the start of the year was we would be battling the Knicks, who he thinks would be better than the bucks by year end, for the 7th seed in the east. The bulls were also a shoe in for a top 6 seed in the playoffs.

He also proposes a million trades. If you want to witness any of them, as Lakers fans did when he posted one on their forum, they are on page 2 of the bucks forum. All of the deals had a "1000%" chance of happening if offered in his own words. And every deal involved the bucks getting mirotic and teodosic, who is one of the top pgs in the league by his estimation.

I know I don't post in the bucks forum anymore and before I stopped I noticed a few other good posters had stopped posting too because it's full of nonsense. And believe it or not, it actually looks like he's gotten more reasonable.

buckalis
11-07-2018, 07:26 AM
I am not sure where all this meaness coming from you is originated from... Probably it's out of jealousy, because my basketball knowledge is far more than yours... Me predicting that the Bucks would end up at a low end playoff seed, was long ago, when they let Jabari go and never replaced by a forward that could play SF and PF, but at the preseason games, it proved that coach Bud has spoted the problem and had in mind alternative tactics, where Giannis would play at 3 and with Ilyasova and Lopez as bigs, the Bucks would end up with even better 3 tower on the floor formations...

Then all the trades I ever proposed proved to be in favor of the other team involved, they therefore were with 1000% chances to work, but for the Bucks side... and that propably is the reason behind the Bucks never suggesting them...

Never the less, the game against the Nuggets prooved that the Bucks have a mismatch problem, if they play against teams that can retain a 3 tower on the floor tactics for all the game lasts, I therefore was right that the Bucks need to make up for Jabari's loss by adding a direct replacement, otherwise the Bucks have to play Giannis at 3 for 48 mins...

Bucks are on track as to achieve 60+ wins in regular season, having had overcome the most difficult schedule out of their direct competitors, by having only one defeat against Eastern teams when played against the Celtics in Boston and by having a 6-3 record after playing against most of the leading Western teams...

As it turns, a 20-10 record against Western teams looks to be very feasible for the Bucks against Western teams and a 42-10 record against Eastern teams is also feasible, given that the Bucks haven't played any "easy games" against lower seed teams of either conference, which would lead to a 62-20 regular season!

Lol, Giannis isn't shooting 40%+ from three and I have bad news for you.. when the game slows down, star players who can't shoot are much easier to stop than guys who can. Just wait when teams start double covering Giannis and playing zone while Giannis tries to chuck up a shot and you start wondering why he won't just "dunk" over them.

I don't think you understand what you're talking about yourself. When did I say anything about your floor spacing?

You obviously are totally clueless on basketball tactics... "Zone press" is the worst tactics one can have against a team that has seven players shooting over 40% from deep, because it ends up with either the shooters shooting open protected behind a screen set, or alternatively, one player attacks the rim and either finishes or assists the ball to the periphery for an open 3 if the defense converges in the paint to double team on him...

It's not only Giannis passing 50% more assists (per 36) this season, it's the whole Bucks team that is assisting the ball 40% more as to create the open 3pt shot... Besides, It's not only Giannis attacking the rim, all Bledsoe, Brogdon, Middleton, Snell, Connaughton and Divincenzo do... the Bucks end up with 6 or more players having put double scoring figures on the board in each and every game... Yet, Giannis is showing a significant improvement on all his scoring , rebounding, and assists this season over the last one, despite the team having jumped from the 28th seed in 3pt shooting during last season, to first for this season...

Still Giannis will shoot better than 40% from deep later this season though and still you are a complete ignorant on anything that is related with the game... now... let me watch the game of Wolves demolishing the Nets playing... "Bucks"! (as much as they can)

Νice try... first it was "no way the Bucks will be no1 in the league for 3s", then it was "wait till the west trip" & "you had the easiest schedule (when it was the opposite) so far", now there is a statement that can only be translated as "the Bucks will have more injuries than their competitors"...

Better look at your house burning first... After all we were the first that set fire into it... Remember Butler's face after the game in MIN? ...we had 1&1/2 quarter of "garbage time" and Butler scoring ...4 (yes 4!) ...remember?

EDIT: I guess you have forgotten all this trolling of yours... After all, all trolls forget sooner than later... and then you all end up calling our revenge when posting here... trolliing!

I clearly stated they needed to prove it long term. So far so good. 17 games in....

You did have an easy schedule to open. You went 2-2 on the road trip. Half your schedule has been against lottery teams in all likelihood. So where was I wrong? Where did I say the Bucks wouldn't be a good 3 point shooting team? I said Giannis can't shoot, and he can't...

The Bucks have had zero health issues. They always come. It will be interesting to see how they handle them is my point.

my post is accurate. And I don't troll.

Also, haven't we covered you going after my crappy team? Do you think I am sensitive to their dysfunction? Please, my team has zero to do with the Milwaukee Bucks.

Did you even look at the Bucks schedule? 13-4

W Hornets Playoff team and Kemba playing like a MVP
W Pacers Playoff team
W Knicks yeah lottery
W 76ers Playoff team
W Wolves with Butler lottery
W Magic Playoffs as of right now. Might not last.
W Raptors Playoffs yeah both Kawhi and Giannis didn't play.
L Celtics Playoffs Celtics had to break their own 3 point shooting record to beat us barely.
W Kings Not playoffs now, but were back at the time pretty hot team.
L Blazers Playoffs. Blazers caught us on a off night and we shot less threes.
W Warriors Defending champs
L Clippers Playoffs Bev and Harrell played out of their minds yet we were still in it and barely loss by two in OT.
W Nuggets Playoffs
L Grizzlies Playoffs Lost by three in a dull game. Refs jerked that game around all night.
W Bulls Lottery
W Nuggets Playoffs
W Blazers Playoffs.


If we had coach Kidd yet. Man that schedule would be brutal. We be lucky to have 5 or 6 wins with Kidd here yet.

So out of the schedule so far the lottery teams are Knicks,Bulls,Kings. Even though Kings were winning early then fell off as of late.

The up to now schedule (which was the most difficult out of all teams in the league) suggests that the Bucks will end up with 60+ wins with no more than 10 losses against West teams and no more than 12 losses against the East teams... 62-20 is what sounds the most reasonable end result...

EDIT: If the Bucks will have Wood ready (who works hard everyday under coaching with Giannis mentoring him) before the playoffs... they'll end up playing the playoffs with 2xGiannis starting on the floor for "bigs"... Fear the fooking Deer!

Do you have any young guys you will need/want to extend? Free agents may be tough as far as top tier, but if the Bucks can hold onto what they are doing they should appeal to some vets wanting to latch onto a good situation.

Bledsoe, and Lopez, can be replaced.

Any team with $20M or more in cap will be chasing Middleton this summer. He's the consolation prize for those that miss on Klay signing with Warriors.

MILLERHIGHLIFE
11-23-2018, 04:08 PM
I have no clue what kinda money Bledsoe wants. $15M per or more? I'm sure if Lakers miss out on everyone. LeBron will tell Magic Johnson to sign Bledsoe to a big one year deal. Brogdon is RFA. Who knows what he gets. $8M per up to $12M per? I think he peaked skills wise. More money his value dips in my mind. Buckalis will say other wise.

I prefer to trade Brogdon and or Maker to shed a bad contract to keep our starters back. Or trade Brogdon and Maker and a filler for a upgrade at SG. We were linked to Bazemore in the summer then that simmered off. I suggested Fournier a couple times. Beal would be nice but doubtful we have a chance asset wise. We passed on Butler.

1. As you are right to say... Bledsoe and Lopez are no problem...

2. Middleton is the only (small) issue, who (IMO) we should refuse to pay more than what Giannis takes...

3. With the Bucks ending up title contenders this season and having the best premises and practice facilities in the league (I should rather say "in the world") for their players, there will be a cue of players lining up begging to sign with the Bucks out of free agency and then at friendly contracts... (Any of the Morris twins, Mirotic, T. Harris... to say the least) and even KD will be a free agent... So... no Middleton problem either if he decides not to sign for 25M (for next season) tops...

Besides, the coaching team is working hard with Snell (our most efficient man coming from bench) as to have him ready to provide a Middleton alternative by the All star game...

4. Look at my EDIT on the previous post... The Bucks roster depth is fooking amazing... we only have 2 players expendable on Delly and Wilson and these only because they are not "Bucks level players"...

5.We can always play Giannis at 3 and I can guarantee to you, he will be shooting 40+% from deep before this season's playoffs... as this is what he is working on currently (and never fails on what he is working on)...

Despite the weather!:D

As a Raps fan, this is the team I fear the most in the East by far.

They've got defense, 3 point shooting and Giannis. Their only weakness is depth which I think will be the difference in the series against the Raps, especially if their 3s aren't falling.

It goes vice versa for most fans from our side... I believe the East final will be Bucks vs. Raptors and the one that has the court advantage, will have the more chances to win it...

I also think that the game in Toronto after two weeks, although still early in the season, will be decisive for which team will end up ranking 1st in the regular season.

Bucks fizzed out fast. I could see some panic trades at the trade deadline. Since you figure Middleton has a player option and will opt out for more money next summer. Bud bench Middleton late in the OT loss other night to Knicks. Middleton been kinda lazy. Bledsoe and Lopez UFA. Brogdon RFA If Bucks renounce them all we only have $25M. I can see us at least trading somebody to save face for next summer. Chances are we can only keep 2 or 3 of them depending how much it will cost. But i'm game for trading Middleton and or Brogdon.

They are going to play even better... Possible Injuries can affect the Bucks by far less than their direct competitors would be affected...

The Bucks have been working on their roster depth more than any other team in the NBA and then the roster is such, that all players have a different role supplementary to each other.

The Bucks now have the ability to "hit" any team in the league on their bench and beat them (yes, even GSW).

Wait until Feb the 7th for two more major additions in the Bucks roster, these additions will result on deeper roster players to be replaced by players that can start.... The result will be that the Bucks will end up with a 15 player roster, where all 15 players could be of the "20mins in the floor" kind for any other team in the league...

The two teams meet each other this Saturday in Milwaukee's Fiserv Forum state of the art arena, with the Bucks having won both of the previous meetings...

29-11 after 40 games for the Bucks, after having beaten the Rockets at Houston...

The Bucks have yet to loose two in a row (only team in the league)... It means that if the Bucks only do 0.500 - which is highly unlikely, they'll do much better than that- for the rest of the season, they'll end up with a 50-32 record... The Bucks aim for 60+ wins this season.

Again... You highly underestimate the Bucks... They've beaten the Nuggets twice, 1-1 against GSW & Blazers, 1-0 against Rockets and Wolves away from home (2nd game with both at home) and 1-0 against Kings, Jazz, Spurs and Pelicans at home... There is no chance they end up with more than 10 games lost against the West...

At East, they are 1-1 against the Pacers & Celtics (Celtics games both at Boston), 2-1 against the Raptors (one remaining), 2-0 against the Pistons & 1-0 against the Sixers... Celtics and Sixers are total of 3 games with each we play against (3 games remaining - 2 against "crappy" Sixers and one at home against the Celtics)... So... No way we end up loosing more than 10 games against the East teams either...

Therefore, 60+ wins is what even the most negative against the Bucks observer would be able to see if he had some only decent self respect...

Besides... expect a major trade move to happen before the trade deadline so that the Bucks will increase their chances in the finals against GSW...

What do you think? Is it that if the Wolves (it's only an example) make a very good offer for Beal to the Wizzards, but Beal doesn't want to go to the Wolves, do you think the trade will ever happen? ...no it won't!

Beal's manager will be calling the Wolves FO the next minute and would say.. "Look... we are prepared to cause you more problems than Butler ever did, if you proceed with this"...

EDIT: Cruel world, but that's the truth on how things work... Either if you like it or not, Bucks are top destination for talented players now... either via trades, or during the upcoming free agency...

I would need to look it up, but there are only a few guys who are given NTC, and they are superstars generally. And even most of them don't have em', the older stars are the only ones that even attempt to build it in.

Plus other than Giannis which big names in the off season this summer will even want to play in a small market in Milwaukee? I'm just sayin or I just be practical when I say this because not a lot of superstars will want to sign with the Bucks as a first choice. Even if the Bucks are doing great this season they haven't been able to get out the first round in the playoffs in quite some time even with Giannis or without him I'm saying Bucks haven't been this great in a while. However, that being said great financials aside do Milwaukee even have the cap to go after any big names? Money tied up not just in Giannis but Middleton too and Middleton will want max dollars. Giannis will get super max for sure and even then where does that leave the Bucks? They have to unload people especially if they want to keep Middleton and Giannis but also pair them up with a 3rd option. I mean what happened with Butler? Y'all lost out on that and he went to the Sixers but at the same time can Milwaukee land big names in the off season? I doubt it but hey stranger things

It's all "coincidence" with the Bucks and Wizzards this season... :D

-Bucks saved them 6.5M off their tax penalty and payed them another 2.5M in cash as to get Meeks... who they waived a month later...

-Backs passed them 24yo asset Sam Dekker on his rookie contract, saved them another 6.5M of tax penalty and got in return... 31yo J.Smith (!!!) on an expiring contract who they don't use, nor they need being full with bigs...

-Today the Bucks visit the Wizzards and they suddenly announce, that all Giannis, Bledsoe, D.J. Wilson, Ilyasova & DDV are out... all due to ... sudden injuries (!!!) but also all with "day to day" return (they play in the next game)...

-I guess part of the deal that will bring Beal to Milwaukee, is that the roster will be as weak as possible so that the Wizzards can win it (since the players would never agree to dunk a game)... LOL... the reserves will still win it!

I don't see what this has to do with anything especially now. I'm mainly just stating that will Milwaukee even have enough to attract big names come summer? I mean because preferably big name guys tend to go elsewhere especially to bigger markets because of more exposure but the greater chance to win titles, now am I right or am I wrong on that statement? Just answer me that. Don't get me wrong or try to change the subject or deflect , Milwaukee do they have a great team? Yes they do. Do they have a chance to win it all? It is possible but then again what I am saying is do they have enough to keep Middleton and Giannis especially because both guys are gonna want big money right? Giannis is super max for sure that is not even a question. Middleton is the issue because he is gonna want to get paid this summer. Then you have all those expirings and then you try to add a 3rd option to get over the hump but then you have to find teams to take on those contracts especially if you are serious about going after a 3rd star but then also re-signing Middleton.

What do the Bucks need Middleton or Bledsoe for? They have the deepest quality roster in the entire league , they will land Beal on an excellent contract by Feb. 7th and Giannis just bought from Telletovic his house in Milwaukee and moved all his family there... Bucks will have 74M to spend this up coming free agency and will be 1st target destination for talented young players...

All they have to do this season is win the East (easy) with a starting roster of Bledsoe, Beal, Middleton, Giannis and Lopez starting and Hill, Brogdon, Brown, D.J. Wilson & Wood to back them up and then "hit" GSW on their bench in the finals!

But I agree, probably a second round exit for the Bucks. They got a coach to get the best out of them in the regular season but come the post season when your best player can only score in the paint it's gonna get a LOT tougher. Teams can scheme for him and he's never gotten out of the 1st round so it is HIGHLY unlikely they get to the Finals.

Yeah but all the talk about Middleton getting a huge deal near the Kaly thompson range is annoying. I have yet to see him take over a game when we absolutely need him too. He's going to want #1 $$ and some team desperate enough after they miss out on the top other guys will give him a huge deal that he's not worth. My $$ is on LAL. simply put, Giannis needs guys like middleton but he's got to play better. I would take broggy over him long term because ROY is consistent and you can always count on him

First look at the post that I quoted. He said what do the bucks need Middleton for ? I think they need him because heís the exact type of player that Giannis needs. Someone who can play off the ball, stretch the floor and still have an impact on the game. the nba is full of bloated contracts and I donít know what heíll command in free agency but I think the op was under stating Middletonís impact on the team.

I think Middleton's best days are behind him. Already 27 and the usual cold streaks and out of shape and body language seems very lazy. Also isn't the greatest defender anymore. Most teams go at him. Also if he doesn't have the ball in his hands he doesn't do much. Doesn't fight through screens or anything. Also he's back to settling for long twos. Bucks should of traded him a couple years ago. Now were either gonna have to trade him or keep him for playoff run. Then over pay or let him walk for nothing. I wouldn't want him back on a 4 year deal either if we brought him back.

Middleton is $13M expiring contract. Well he has a player option but he opts out of that next summer for more money. But Wizards would get Bird rights. While Beal is $25.4M. Also Wizards pretty capped out. Wall's contract balloons to $38M next season. Chance Middleton could walk. While Beal is locked in a few more years. Also Wizards would have to like the salary filler of a Snell or Ersan. Or multiple rookie contracts. But then the Bucks lose depth if were trying to tack on equal salary with rookie contracts.

Also Brogdon been playing well as of late. So if he's bench for SG Beal. Brogdon would get ticked off. Unless Beal can play SF? Back when Brogdon wasn't playing well I suggested Brogdon and Hill and Maker or a 2024 first for Beal. Ernie gets that $1M guaranteed of Hill and waive him to save some cap. Also test drive Brogdon now before he becomes RFA. But Brogdon as of late been pretty good and will hopefully be cheaper then Middleton most likely.

Yeah that one article stated Ernie's asking price to get to talk with him on the phone is two first round picks and a rookie contract and a filler for Beal. Bucks have two first round picks tied up with Suns and Cavs now. We can only trade 2024 pick with stipulations that the other two teams get their pick first. Also not sure how far out a team can trade first round picks. Is it like 6 or 7 years or less?

I think there's plenty of other teams can trump Bucks offer for picks and young guys. Yeah Bucks do own two Wizards second round picks. So I guess we could give them two back and 2024 pick and a young guy or whatever.

But I think a team like Hornets could push a Monk,Bridges and a pick package and a filler for Beal easily. Raptors could as well. Raptors could offer up Val,Fred and choice of either OG or Siakam or both. Then Ernie can follow up with Kings and Porter. They were linked to having interests in him last month.

buckalis
01-13-2019, 11:20 AM
In order for the Bucks to get Beal, there is a 3rd team needed so that it provides a "salary filler"... I now believe that that this team will (again) be the Cavaliers...

What leads me to this conclusion, is that 24 y.o Dekker was passed to the Wizzards last time the three teams where having a deal with each other, thus providing an asset to the Wizzards, which along with the tax penalty of 13.5M that the Wizzards have saved up to now and the 2.5M in cash they've received from the Meek deal (16M + Dekker in total - all being "charity" coming from the Bucks Bucks"), I believe was a down payment for Beal...

The final part of the deal should look something like that:

Trading with the Wizzards for Beal:

Cavaliers receive: Jason Smith and Tony Snell

Wizzards receive: J.R. Smith, D. DiVincenzo, Thon Maker + 2nd from Bucks (return of the Wizzards pick) + 1st from Cavs (tranfer of the Bucks pick) + the rest of tax penalty saved... + of course (total gain of 26M tax savings + 2.5M in cash + Sammuel Dekker).

Bucks receive: Bradley Beal + Jeff Green via contract buy back and sign with the Bucks for higher salary.

Loosing to Toronto at the East finals as you suggest, would still be considered a success for this season's Bucks... But I believe the Bucks will make one (could be two) major addition in their roster by the trade deadline, which will upgrade the roster to a clear level above the Raptors...

I believe that the Bucks will add Bradley Beal and Nikola Voucevic by Feb the 7th and will also add Jeff Green after a contract buy out... The Bucks will then end up with this roster (clearly the best roster depth in the entire league) for the playoffs:

Starters: Bledsoe, Beal, Middleton, Giannis, Voucevic

1/2 combo guards: Brogdon, Hill, J.Morris

2/3 combo wings: Brown, J.Young

So you got the Cavs giving the Bucks first round pick rerouted to Wizards? Why would Cavs do that? They ate dead weight in Delly and Henson for that pick. Now they're giving it away for another bad contract in Snell? Cavs easily say no. Also Cavs can get a extra mild asset for JR Smith's contract since its not fully guaranteed next season.

They Cavs will be very happy to pass the pick to the Wizzards... The protections are such that the pick will never convey... it will end up to be 2x2nd that both will be 50+.... just like undrafted... Bucks will lift the protection after the Wizzards will get the pick... Beal is ours!

At, fist it is "Cavs don't it... They won't give the1st back" and after you get the answer "why the would surely do it - because the pick is absolute rubbish"... you realize you goofed and now, (unable to reply after it was proved that you goofed), you continue your negativity and alter your position to "Ernie doesn't do it"... I wonder, is "Ernie" your friend and you call him "Ernie"?

I'm sorry man, but you should think before you try and have a discussion with me... You better go back to your "trade Brogdon - trade Brogdon" nonsense that has caused all serious not to participate in our forum... You certainly can't have a "conversation" with me anymore... It requires "stable" people that have something valuable in their head to do so...

I feel like somehow people are losing sight of the fact that Milwaukee is a Giannis injury from a lottery team. It's not great depth if it's hard to imagine even competing for a playoff spot if you lost your superstar. I dont mean it's a lock you cant compete for a playoff spot without that guy, but you wouldn't be the least bit surprised if they didnt even make it interesting. That's what the bucks have IMO behind Giannis, I mean I give Bud huge credit, hes a shoe in for coach of the year barring complete collapse, but it's hard to say with a straight face Milwaukee is loaded in any fashion.

If you are talking about the Wizzards game, I assure you we tanked it in favor of the Wizzards... I have posted that we would tank it, before it ever happened.

what?

Just so you know I'm a die hard Raiders fan and Dodgers fan..

You said the Lakers are always trying to win a title, so my question was if that makes you one of the people who don't acknowledge that the Lakers tanked in the past.

And the Raiders and Dodgers are not relevant here :)

Iíve literally watched every single Lakers game since 1996...

Yes, bud, I know we tanked to keep our picks. My comments were more that we donít celebrate for 2nd round playoff births here.

Bucks still the only team in the league that hasn't lost two consecutive games... Mid season gone now...

buckalis

Bucks are back to lead the East... Also lead the entire league in having lost only 12 games and with the best point differential among all teams. Other than being the only team in the league that hasn't lost in two consecutive games, the Bucks haven't lost two games against the same opponent either...

In the unlikely scenario case that the Bucks record for the 38 games remaining would be restricted at only 0.500, the Bucks would finish the regular season with 51 wins...

The Bucks are expected to strengthen the roster up further by Feb. the 7th and out of contract buyout free agents...

as long as they continue to be blessed with nearly perfect health, that win total should be in the high 50's. Again though, rarely do we see teams that suffer basically no injuries to key players..

I personally still don't feel they can take down Toronto, and perhaps Boston or Philly. But they are a very good team.

The Bucks have the best roster depth in the entire league and then with players that could be starters on other teams... Not only they can cope with any injury, but they can protect Giannis too... Giannis only got 22mins (27pts, 11 rebs) playing time yesterday and 26mins (triple double) the night before... His total playing time this season is 11% less than the season before...

Sixers stand no chance against the Bucks, but they'll be out in the 1st round too either by the Celtics, or by the Pacers if Boston climbs up to the 3rd seed by the end of the regular season... Raptors and Celtics are the only contenders, but the Bucks are in a better position as to control the final ranking and have them play between them in the East semifinals, because they have played two games less than the Raptors (which they can tank if necessary)... In other words, the Bucks can choose to tank to the 2nd place if they see that the Celtics will finish ranked 4th or 5th, or 1st if the Celtics climb up to the third seed...

Additionally, a "big name" trade is on the works to happen by Feb the 7th, which not only will cause this season's Bucks to be a clear level above their East competitors, but to have a very serious run against GSW as well...

Although there may be speculation about Antetokounmpoís future in Milwaukee from rival executives, Bucks GM Jon Horst isnít preoccupied by thoughts of Giannisí next contract, writes Beck.

ďThe truth is, it really isnít the biggest thing on our mind,Ē Horst said. ďThe biggest thing on our mind is how do we take a step from last year to this year and continue to improve? And if we do all the right things along the way, and we take the appropriate steps Ö it will take care of itself.Ē

Hereís more from Horst on the Bucksí long-term outlook, via Beck:

ďWe want to build something sustainable. We want to compete for multiple championships over a long period of time. Ö I think if we just take all those kind of intentional, organic steps along the way, I think we can position ourselves to have long-term success. And Giannis is the key ingredient to that. You gotta have one of those. We have one.Ē

Here is how Jon Horst visualizes the future Bucks with Giannis in the team... "Multiple championships with a sustainable team"... https://www.hoopsrumors.com/eric-bledsoe

I thought that clowns are the ones that pretend to be "insiders"... :D Will it be the Heat that will "eliminate" us in the 1st round? If this is your claim, I guess it makes you the biggest clown on the planet...

Was it the "2nd best defense in the league" (after the Bucks) that "ate" 124 the other night against the Bucks who played the entire 4th quarter in "garbage time"?

So theyíre 1-1 vs the Bucks for the season and Giannis canít seem to score against them? Better hope they donít get a star because they already have the blueprint for locking up Giannis.

We have tanked games against the Suns, the Knicks, the Grizzlies and the Wizards before in order to keep under control our final seeding against the Raptors and the Celtics... We want them to play against each other in the East semi finals... see clown?

That makes literally no sense and itís hilarious if you actually believe they did that. Theyíre trying to get the 1st seed, losing to those teams doesnít help them and it doesnít help the Celtics and Raptors matchup in the 2nd round happen lmao!

according to you........but we don't know because they have't had any injuries. At all. Your team is catching the "lucky" injury bug. Enjoy it, because it won't stay that way forever.

b.s. The Bucks are a team that is very good, but also still finding greatness. So they lose games they shouldn't, due to playing to the level of competition. The truly great teams never do this. They beat EVERYONE they should, and beat most the teams otherwise.

Yeah, because "that makes" sense. Carry on with the insanity. Why not just "win all" those games to get the 1 seed and make sure you have home "court throughout" the playoffs?

It's kinda fun putting things in quotation marks for no reason at all🤣

I've said that before, but you seem not to read a conversation when it starts...

1. If the Celtics take the 5th or the 4th seed, the Bucks will prefer to tank to the 2nd seed, so that they can "save power" for the NBA finals by only playing the winner out of the two in the finals... The Bucks will still have the court advantage at the NBA finals, but in the East finals before that too, if the Celtics win (which I believe will be the case)

2. If the Celtics will climb up the standings and rank 3rd, then the Bucks will rank in the 1st seed... At the moment it's important to keep things under control and keep an eye on what happens with the Celtics...

I believe the Raptors are doing the same as the Bucks, but the Bucks have currently the advantage in controlling things over them because they are two games "later"...

no team thinks that far out regarding positioning dude. None. Hell most won't even sacrifice a game 82 for it. So I have zero idea where you are pulling this from.

A real athlete/coach is competitive as hell. Bring em' on. Who cares who you play.
