In all honesty, there were some outrageously bad takes on The FAN today (more than usual!). Our show had a guy bash Aaron Rodgers as if he'd never seen an NFL game in the last decade, a caller into Bill's show said Prince Fielder was not even a Top 25 Brewer of All-Time, and then came the garbage on The Big Show where Ramie spent the whole 4pm hour ripping on Michael Phelps. Something about not being an athlete because he can't shoot a basketball like his hero Derrick Rose, I'm not really sure I stopped paying attention...
But in honor of these terrible takes, it's time to hear some even worse ones. Thursday morning on Chuck & Winkler we're going to debut "Terrible Take Thursday" at 7:15am. We're looking for people to call - 414.799.1250 - with the worst take they can think of. You don't have to believe your take, but you have to make it believable. The "best" one will win tomorrow's prize - a four pack of tickets to the Brewers/Reds game on Friday night, as well as a four pack of tickets to Irishfest next week down at the Summerfest Grounds.
Call in, give us your terrible take, and good luck!
Who cares! That’s all I’ve been telling people as the Bucks 1st round selection Thon Maker has been the subject of many people questioning his age of 19 instead speculating he is actually 23.
Do I know if he is 19 or 23? No
Do I choose to believe that a multi-million dollar organization did their homework on him and know his age? Yes
Do I think that Excel Sports Agency who seemingly has a close relationship with the Bucks would lead them down a wrong path when it comes to Maker’s age? No
Do I think that Thon Maker is a better shooter coming out of the draft than Giannis was? Yes
What role does Maker have with this team in the future? Stretch 4/Center
Do I think that Maker can be a pivotal piece to a championship team in Milwaukee? Yes
I’m not sure how you answered those questions, but if you answered them the same as me than why would you or anybody else be concerned about Thon Maker’s age. Let’s focus on Free Agency and avoiding Dwight Howard coming to the Bucks!! Go Bucks!!
This year's NBA Draft is coming up Thursday night and we'll be at Cue Club of Wisconsin in Waukesha doing the Milwaukee Bucks Draft Show from 6 to 11. We're honored to have former Badgers basketball player Marcus Landry joining us this year as a guest co-host with Mike Maxcy and myself.
I really don't have strong feelings this year on any one player that I think the Bucks MUST pick at 10. In years past, I normally fall in love with a player or two and really lobby hard for the Bucks to take them. This years draft really doesn't scream star players to me, now that doesn't mean that stars won't come out of this draft, but I just don't see it as of now. Lots of rumors about Bucks moving players like Middleton, Monroe, or MCW for picks in the draft Thursday night. If they were to make those trades, this team becomes even younger and I just can't believe that Jason Kidd wants to get even younger than they are already.
The new stadium opens in 2018 and there is a TON of pressure to be a winning team by that point and I just think it's a HUGE gamble to make these moves to add 2 or 3 rookies to this roster right now. Now having said all that, the thought of Jamaal Murray of Kentucky and Buddy Heild of Oklahoma being the starting backcourt this season really excites me! I'm fine waiting longer for this to develop but I don't have the pressure on me like the Bucks do with a new stadium on the horizon.
