Bucks on life support
Its not fair. Just as the Bucks seemed to have their line-up set and seemed poised for a big run against a string of weak teams, they lose starters no.2 and 3 (I'm counting Simmons) as well as their top guy off the bench. This for a team that was paper thin to begin with. The results thus far have been predictable: loss after loss.
Andrew Bogut had a nice game tonight against Toronto, putting up 17 points and 17 rebounds. It was not nearly enough. In a lifeless game, the Bucks lost to another weak team they would ordinarily take apart at home. How bad are things? To be honest, the Raptors did not play very well and yet the Bucks were not even competitive.
The problem is obvious: zero offense. And no one to turn to for relief. 77 points against Toronto? From a Bucks team averaging 103? That's disastrous. Its clear that without offense, the Bucks are not much. And now they have no offense. You do the math.
It pisses me off. After a rough start, the Bucks were definitely trending upward. Now they're clearly sinking again. What a shame. Oh well, that's life as a Bucks fan, I guess. Were always paying for that early championship it seems.
Do you sign Webber as a band-aid? At a low dollar number, I would consider it. He wouldn't do much to bolster the offense, but he can hit shots. Again, at a low dollar number I might take a flier. The Bucks clearly need something. Would he come here? Probably not, unless he sees rapid recovery reports for key Bucks.
We miss you too, Teej
Asked after the game if he missed Milwaukee, TJ Ford's reply was blunt: "I'm glad to be in Toronto." Why the bitterness little fella?
Well, we don't miss you either you little 'no j' gunner. And may the Canadian dollar cost you more every day, that's all I have to say.
