What The Bucks Happening In Milwaukee?
As a fan of the NBA, I must demand that Commissioner David Stern launch an immediate investigation into the operation of the Milwaukee Bucks. I believe there is a serious effort by Bucks Management to defraud the paying public. I come to this conclusion after I attended their recent home loss to the Detroit Pistons 87 – 76. What those of us in attendance saw was one of the poorest efforts ever given by a home team following a 3-day break.
The evidence can be found by just reviewing the 4th quarter of this game. The Pistons increased their halftime lead from 2 points to 18 points (27 – 11 run) by the end of the 3rd quarter. Head Coach Scott Skiles then must have blacked out and forgot to play his best players in the 4th quarter. Michael Redd (29 min., 4 pts.), Andrew Bogut (26 min., 17 pts.) and Richard Jefferson (29 min., 10 pts.) had the best seats in the Bradley Center for the final 12 minutes. Skiles clearly was sending a message to the fans that he was in control of this circus. At one point (mid-4th qtr.), Skiles was playing 3 bench players that had scored a combined 0 points during the contest… it was unexplainable.
The Bucks faithful had enough of the team and began to rain boos in the BC before the game concluded. I told my buddy at the game that watching this game was like going to the movies to see a Will Smith Blockbuster only to have his stunt double performing in all the scenes.
Milwaukee sports fans deserve better than this and until Sen. Kohl sells the team they won’t get it.
