How We Got Here This past week saw an incredibly exciting one on the sports calendar. Not only did the landscape of the NBA change further on draft night, but it was one of the most thrilling times of the year for baseball fans, the MLB Trade Deadline. Some major names were tossed onto new teams, from Nelson Cruz and Joey Gallo to just about all of the Chicago Cubs. However, one move, in particular, drew the ire of baseball fans around the league. During the day on Thursday, reports began to surface of Nationals ace Max Scherzer being…

Look, all the members of Bucks Nation know what it has taken for this team, this city, to get to this point. Last night, Milwaukee took part in their first NBA Finals game since 1974. While they did not come out on top in that particular contest, it’s important to remember how we became fans of this team in the first place. So, that is the mission I set out upon in recent days, to contact those in Bucks Nation to have them answer some questions about their fandom. This is the product of that, enjoy. When Did You Start…

While all of us may not like every team per se, each one of us has an attachment to at least one local squad. For many, that team, or one of them, is the Milwaukee Bucks. Along with all other Bucks fans, we have seen our fair share of struggles and triumphs. We watched through the 8th-seed-or-bust Bucks, the 15-win team that landed the squad Jabari Parker and everything in between. Those moments, both…

What We’ve Been Missing The roar of the crowd. The high-fiving strangers. The aura of walking out of the concourse and into the vast Fiserv Forum in front of you. The simple feeling of being with a group of like-minded people feeling the electricity through your body. We all missed this, and now it is back. As my girlfriend and I got to the parking garage, I could envision all of it. It did not really hit, though, until we made our way inside. It had been 546 days since I had last stepped foot in that building, and I…

The question is, how would they do with a repeat matchup of what could be a look at the Eastern Conference Finals in 2021? Take a look now in this edition of the Bucks Review! First Quarter Another prime-time matchup, this time on TNT, this game started off slow but picked up rather quickly.

The Milwaukee Bucks came into Wednesday night’s #BucksAfterDark matchup against the Los Angeles Lakers needing a win, and they got a break coming in. The defending champ’s two biggest impact players, and names, in LeBron James and Anthony Davis, missed the contest nursing injuries. The Bucks, however, were certainly not unscathed in this regard coming in either. This is because two of their biggest frontcourt options in Bobby Portis (protocol) and P.J. Tucker (left calf strain) were out as well. So, who showed up, stole the show, and who came out on top in the Battle of the Bruised on…
