Bucks take a Great Leap Forward

Last night GM Larry Harris electrified Bucks Nation when he announced the trade of TJ Ford for Charlie Villanueva. I didn't sleep a wink.

Deadspin.com called this blog "The Diary of a Mad Bucks Fan." The Bucks bring that out in me. But not today. Today I am bursting with Red-and-Green spirit.

This trade has simply blown me away. First, it came from nowhere. That was so great. Second, it did two overwhelmingly positive things for the Milwaukee Bucks. It removed the obvious problem we had at point guard (TJ could be posted at will on defense; on offense he lacked consistency and discipline). And it filled a glaring hole at the power forward position with a young talent. Brilliant.

I'm still in disbelief. I keep thinking David Stern is going to nullify the trade for lopsidedness (ala Bowie Kuhn in 1976).

Why did Toronto do it? It defies basketball logic. You never trade size. You don't trade emerging talent. Above all you do not trade an athletic and effective big man for an underproducing, undersized point guard with a scary medical history. You just don't. They did. Thank you Canada.

Terri Stotts is holding a press conference this morning to discuss the trade.

Uhhhh, has anyone seen charlie v. play defence? nope, because he doesn't, really. total offensive package, but he gets LIT UP. he's one of those tweener guys who doesn't have the speed to cover a small forward and doesn't have the size to cover a power. bucks are losing more than they realize when you consider the lack of quality pgs in the league.

Good thing the Bucks didn't get rid of a quality PG then for Charlie V.
