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?
