Milwaukee Bucks Season Preview History
Milwaukee Bucks 2012 NBA Season Preview:
Fear the Deer! The Bucks are looking to improve upon last year’s shortcomings that had them flounder as the season closed, after a strong start. They barely missed out on a playoff run with a fine roster that began to congeal around its core of forward Brandon Jennings and center Andrew Bogut before the Australian big man broke his arm on a freakish play. Milwaukee will look to get more out of their acquisitions last year, shooting guard Stephen Jackson and small forward Carlos Delfino.
2010-2011 Milwaukee Bucks Basketball Preview:
Behind the dynamic ability of rookie Brandon Jennings, the Milwaukee Bucks were one of the surprise teams last season, and returned to the playoffs for the first time since 2006. The Bucks return a reliable core group of players and have high expectations heading into the year, as coaches and fans believe they are poised to advance further than last season.
Along with Jennings, former number one overall pick Andrew Bogut has emerged as one of the premiere players in the NBA. The seven-foot center averaged 15.9 points a game while bringing down 10.2 rebounds per contest. Drew Gooden and John Salmons are both solid as well, and the addition of Corey Maggette may make up for losing three-point specialist Michael Redd for much of the season.
Though they may not have the depth of talent as some other teams in the Eastern Conference, they may be able to ride Jennings and Bogut to the playoffs once again. Head coach Scott Skiles brings a wealth of experience to the table, and should have his team focused and ready for the start of the season.
2009-2010 Milwaukee Bucks Basketball Preview:
The Milwaukee Bucks head into the 2009-2010 NBA season looking to claw their way out of the basement of the Central Division in the Eastern Conference. The Bucks journey will be led by Head Coach Scott Skiles; who has a roster which is capable of making the playoffs. The Bucks talent includes Michael Redd, young star Brandon Jennings and big man Andrew Bogut. If Milwaukee plays up to their potential look for them to compete in the Central Division and grab one of the eight playoff spots in the East.
2008-2009 Milwaukee Bucks Basketball Preview:
The Bucks ended last season on a somewhat disappointing note, recording a 26-56 season record (3rd lowest in franchise history). The Bucks will welcome Head Coach Scott Skiles to the team, who they hope will usher in his style of defense, to bring the Bucks away from an allowed 103.9 ppg average last season. Bucks fans will also be looking to Michael Redd for support, and are hoping that he will pass the ball this season (last season he averaged 3.4 assists per game - nothing spectacular, but his all-time high). The team's schedule allows only 10 home games in the first 28 games of the season, providing a difficult start for the rebuilding program. The Bucks will have the tools they need to make a serious fight for the playoffs this season, but we will see if they can get off the ground floor and make it closer to the net.
