Tractor Traylor headed to prison?
The troubled times of former Milwaukee Bucks PF Robert "Tractor" Traylor seem never to end. I read in the NY Times SundaySports that Traylor pled guilty last Thursday to filing a false tax return and, more ominously, to "hiding assets for a convicted drug dealer." Unless the big fella was somehow secretly in league with Vic Mackey, I would say our boy's troubles are just beginning. Why, Tractor, why?
Sugar Ray likes Ilyasova's game, too
It appears Bucks rookie Ersan Ilyasova is catching eyes across the Association. In an interview with the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, former Bucks phenom and current Sonics star "Sugar" Ray Allen said "I like this Ilyasova guy. He seems like he really knows how to score. He's going to give them a great lift coming off the bench."
Allen was also impressed with the Bucks sophomore lottery boys, too. "I like what Bogut does out there" Allen added, "and what Villanueva does".
No Shaqer tonight?
Tonight the Bucks face off against the Miami Heat and the man I think is the best player in the world at the moment, Heat G Dwayne Wade. But they might catch a break. Last night on Sportscenter, ESPN reported that Heat C Shaquille O'Neal is unlikely to play.
If so, the Bucks could use the break. Their schedule this week is brutal. The Green and Red have Miami tonight, then they play in Orlando, then in Detroit, before returning to the friendly confines of 4th Street on Saturday for a rematch against the Heat.
Shout out to the Mequon Diesel
My question on the Orlando game: Will the Mequon Diesel (who relocated to Orlando) be in the house supporting the Bucks? If so, he needs to text me with some onsite analysis.
