Is Ted Thompson running the Bucks?

ESPN.com is reporting this morning that Mo Williams is leaning toward joining the Miami Heat! The Heat are putting every effort they can into signing him, and the notoriously offbase Marc Stein is reporting that Mo will make a decision which way he will turn by tomorrow morning. Let's hope he's off base on this one. The Senator has joined in the recruiting fray, but can his charisma match that of Shaq Daddy and D Wade? I think not. But we better hope it does. If Mo leaves, that would render the team virtually point guardless. And who would do those nifty "All the Best" Time Warner Cable ads with Mo gone?

Mo's Hamlet moment isn't the only bad news, either, Bucks fans. The Fort Worth Star Telegram is reporting that Gerald Wallace is close to reupping with the Charlotte Bobcats! So the Bucks might be left holding the bag this offseason.

What are the Bucks going to do with all their cap space? Maybe they plan to spend the money upgrading the Bradley Center's inedible leather-like soft pretzels. Otherwise, I can't figure out why there seems to be no sense of urgency down on Fourth Street.

When did Ted Thompson suddenly start running the Bucks? Did I miss the press release?

I am not sold on Ted Thompson or Larry Harris but TT has done a much better job with the hand he was dealt. Larry Harris has yet to prove jack squat as a GM. He should have had Mo Williams re-signed once he knew there was no shot at Billups.

Ted Thompson has shown the ability to bring in some decent young talent. Harris has shown pretty much nothing. His biggest acquisition has been Mo Williams, which is not saying much. Especially since he had the #1 overall pick two years ago and months to review every player in that draft.

Larry Harris annoys me to be quite honest. He is arrogant in most interviews, has done nothing to improve the Bucks under his watch and has a gleaming sun tan while living in Milwaukee! Is he that guy out at Bradford Beach surrounded by mirrors in the dead of winter?

Like Paulie Walnuts from the Sopranos.

They are kind of screwed now at the point. I don't see a good third option anywhere. Everyone says Brevin Knight, but, if he's the best were going to get we are in trouble.

Hopefully some of the rumors are true that Mo is using the Heat to get more money from the Bucks.
