Throughout the NBA offseason, I will be keeping tabs on the arrivals and departures of the Milwaukee Bucks. Obviously, there is much to be anticipated for the organization. The questions is - who will be with this team come the Fall? While most Bucks fans want to blow it up and rebuild, it appears the organization will blow it up, but instead, add better talent with the extra money they'll have. My gut feeling is more than 50% of the players and coaching staff will be ousted. Once moves are made, I will put black 'X's over the departing team members. Quite honestly, anybody could be removed (and in a perfect world, maybe Herb Kohl will oust himself!) From Center Larry Sanders to Equipment Manager Jay Namoc, nobody is safe.
I'm a big fan of the reality TV Show "Survivor". Instead of calling this 'The tribe has spoken', this reality game will be "The Bucks have spoken."
Who makes the cut? That's your choice...
Here are my predictions...I don't care how many years are left on some of the contracts. John Hammond has a history of dumping bad contracts...and also adding bad contracts...
surprise: Ersan Ilyasova via trade
Luc Richard Mbah a Moute
sleeper: Gustavo Ayon
Jim Boylan WILL NOT return. For the rest of the coaching staff, I don't know where to begin...
It's going to be one hell of a ride, Bucks fans!
Stay tuned throughout the offseason to see whose imaginary torch will be snuffed!
