i used to read this blog, but man, if you think that yi is the worst pf in the league, i dont know what your watching. he has met my expectations for him and in some cases exceeded them. you rely to much on stats, when it comes down to it, it's about wins and losses. the bucks arent doing to bad and there is a lot of season to be played. yi is developing well, he even calls out rotations in the defensive zones. when it comes down to it, the bucks are an average team with the potential to surprise people. plus i watch them because at times they are very fun to watch.
the couple of negatives i see so far this season, we need a solid 3, charlie bell sucks, chuck v is inconsistant but can make spectacular plays, gadzuric's basketball iq has led to him riding the pine.
positives, mo, mike and bogut. yi's basketball iq, and the play of the jakester of late.
overall its too early to tell what kind of team the bucks will be but i like where they are going. like i said, if we can get a solid 3 i think that is the key. an athlete.

I used to like to write this blog too until people stopped actually reading what I wrote and just started commenting on whatever the hell they thought they read. When did I ever write that Yi is the worst power forward in the NBA? When? When?

Besides which, if we can't criticize ourselves, especially when we have a mediocre team that's headed nowhere, and if everybody's just going to be supersensitive whenever I point out anything negative about Bogut or Mason or Yi or whoever, I'm just going to chuck it all.

This is supposed to be a site for intelligent debate, not emotionalism.

Besides, if we have so many superstars who are so far above criticism as everyone seems to think, WHY THE FUCK DO WE HAVE A LOSING RECORD?????

Sorry, I'm having a bad fuckin day. But my point is, if you want this blog to be some sort of cheerleading, rosey-colored glasses sunshine and seashells and pretty balloons, I ain't gonna write it. Because you can already get that -- its called jsonline.com.

But if you want someone who tries to write honest, straightforward analysis by a Bucks fan based upon all of the evidence that Bucks fan can gather, with an eye toward what is ACTUALLY working and what isn't, then I'll continue to write.

If not, this thing has no purpose. Everyone can just switch over to Bango's Bed Buddies or whatever the hell that site is called.

I was actually going to say that you've been very supportive of Yi lately and I can only recall one post in the recent past where you actually criticize him (last Friday's post). The Bucks are sucking it up and we've been dealing with mediocrity for years. Are you, "anonymous," realy finding the Bucks fun to watch when Voshkul and Ivey are jacking up shots and Charlie Bell is passing to the other team? Or is the fun coming from watching Gadzuric scowl from the bench? Redd is great, Williams and Yi have their moments and I love Bogut (despite his many flaws), but the Bucks need some changes. I think that it's officially time to dump Harris. I've gone with the rebuilding for a while but I haven't even felt like going to see a game at the BC in two years. And that is not good. I still do scour the blogs, though.

i don't ever remember you calling yi the worst PF in the league, but what i will say is this, IMO yi is one of the weakest starting pf's in the league. The guy has huge potential, but is a rookie and has had some truly horrible rookie games, as most rookies do. He is not anything close to a strong starting pf at this point, but hey LK chose to start him at the beginning of the season so thats where we're at, apparantly you don't have to earn your stripes at the bucks. I too am happy with him as a talented rookie, just wish he wasn't starting.

Your blog is excellent, i enjoy reading it constantly, and enjoy at times disagreeing with you, hopefully reasonably dispassionately, which is part of the attraction of blogs in first place, lively discussion. I've disagreed with you before regarding Bogut's development (which i'm much happier with than you), but you cannot be accused of wild emotional fluctuations as many of your readers and posters on other sites can. You go a little too heavy on the stats for my liking, but i enjoy your observations.
So despite what anonymous may think, keep up the good work!
