Pointless Bucks

When the guy behind the glass at the gas station tells me the Bucks suck at point guard, its official. But just to be sure, a recent article on NBCsports.com drives the same contention home with particularly persuasive force.

The article (written by the boys from 82games) examined each team's cumulative statistical production at each position as compared to their opponents. The authors found that the Bucks production deficit at the PG position is the third worst production deficit of any team at any position in the Association.

How have the Bucks sucked at the point? Let me count the ways. We are being grossly outshot, outpassed, outscored, outfreethrowed... everything but outrebounded. And having your diminutive point guards consistently crashing the boards is a mixed bag at best.

The moral of the story is we need to rectify this glaring problem. Perhaps Mo Williams and Steve Blake will step it up. If they don't the team will keep leaking water at one of the most important positions on the floor.
