Bucks Diary

Couldn't Someone Have Spoken Up?


What, are you going to shortsheet me next? Why didn't someone post a comment like "Hey dumbass from Milwaukee Bucks Diary, that "CG" stat you claim to have invented or revealed is an already existing statistic tallied by NBA.com and refered to as Efficiency/48? Duh." Boy, I feel smart and on-top of things now. Next I'm going to invent a statistic just like RPG and call it "Ballboards", like Oscar Robertson inexplicably used to do.

No, its okay. No harm no foul because I took no intellectual property value in the stat whatsoever. The CG was completely derivative anyway so I knew it had to be in existence in some other form, I just didn't know there was an exact duplicate at such an easily accesible site.

Anyway, this is good news, since I'm almost totally sold on the value of the statistic as a general play evaluator, and now I don't have to do anymore annoying math.

With the new information at my fingertips, here's some cursory observations based on the comprehensive Eff/48 stats produced by NBA.com:

1. Even though Magliore sucks, GM Harris still won the Magliore for Mason trade. Desmond Mason's production has fallen off the planet. Way off the planet. He has the lowest Eff/48 among forwards who get significant playing time. That's bad. In fact, he's been beyond awful, aka beyond "Magliore Bad". And that non-lottery pick we lost was of little value as it has about a 1 in 10 chance of even producing a contributing player.

2. Mo Williams, my Bucks MVP earlier this season, has been completely decimated and his season has been derailed by injuries. Its sad. He was making a great leap forward this season before being struck down.

3. TJ Ford is having an excellent April; let's keep it up through the play-offs, #11.

4. Joe Smith is struggling big time in the last couple of weeks. Pick it up, Joe. Go easy on the skirts, buddy.

5. We may have to accept that Bobby Simmons will always be a middling starting small forward. Lets just hope for brief moments of brilliance. Like right now, for example. If the Bucks are to do anything at all in the postseason, HE MUST STEP UP. Don't hold your breath, Purple and Greeniacs.

Uhh,the only thing I've heard about uniforms is here:

And as for the other stuff, Magloire's production has falen off the earth even more dramatically. He's playing worse than he did last year when he was INJURED. His turnover rate is at a career high and his FT% is off by more than 215 points from two years ago. Mase is just having an off-year until proven otherwise, because Byron Scott has been fucking with his minutes all year, while Magloire seems to be past his prime and he's only 27. He has gotten consistent playing time, unlike Mase, and he has been consistently bad. PLUS, Mase missed 11 games due to injury.

Not to mention that the one thing the Bucks need is a 6-6 defensive minded backup swingman, because Jiri Welsch is even worse than Mase.

Plus, this is the most unpredictable draft in recent memory, so I'd give the chances at greater than 1 in 10, especially since Steve Novak will still be around and he has been absolutely KILLING in pre-draft camps. I want Novak!
