Milwaukee's Worst on tap in Miami
After the Bucks lost to the Kings a week or so ago, someone at the Sacramento Bee wrote that "the Bucks played like Milwaukee's Best tastes." Well, "The Beast" was on tap again last night in Miami.
Stotts not doing his job
I am very optimistic about the Bucks and their future. They are stock piling a lot of good talent, in my opinion. But I just don't think Terry Stotts is the man who will take them to the next level. And its games like last night that make me think that way.
Last night, the Bucks did not put forth a professional effort. To put it more bluntly, they went out on the court and absolutely took a shit. Sorry if that offends anyone, but that's what happened. I have to be real. They didn't come prepared to play. It was an embarrassment for Bucks Nation, plain and simple.
Am I overreacting? I don't think so. The Bucks are not 30 points worse than a Shaqless Heat. They simply are not. And the Heat without Shaq are not proficient enough offensively to shoot the +60% FG percentage they shot for most of last night. And when the Bucks are shooting 40% for the game at the same time, it tells me one team is competing and one is not. Its that simple. The Bucks gave no effort whatsoever on either the offensive end or the defensive end, and I'm disgusted by that. And I think its Stotts' fault. Can't the guy light a fire under anyone?
Did he have the Bucks ready to play last night? Consider the following. The team was down 50-25 at one point. They had only 37 at the half. Is that a team that came out ready to play?
