VIDEO: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar reprises “Airplane!” role in Tourism ad


kareem-abdul-jabbar

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, the leading scorer in both Bucks and NBA history, has reprised his role from the slapstick comedy “Airplane!”  Abdul-Jabbar, who you know best as a Los Angeles Laker, did actually help the Bucks to their only NBA title in 1971. I know, it’s very difficult to fathom that today given what the Bucks as a franchise has become, but they did actually win a NBA Championship 43 years ago, with Kareem leading the way.

Evan Turner deal headlines dull NBA trade deadline


evan-turner-76ers

Just when I was starting to come up with clever analogies for how anticlimactic the 2014 NBA trade deadline has been, the Indiana Pacers pulled off a major deal in their hopes of dethroning the Miami Heat as the team to beat in the Eastern Conference by acquiring Evan Turner from the Philadelphia 76ers for Danny Granger. Still, for the second straight year it was a rather dull trade deadline. Here is a breakdown of the deals that were made.

2013 NBA Draft re-do


2013 nba draft class

It is an annual tradition here during the NBA All-Star break to re-do the NBA Draft lottery from the previous year.  The Sports Bank’s NBA Draft Nerd, David Kay and Peter Christian will alternate re-drafting the first round of the 2013 NBA Draft taking into account what they know about the rookies based off their performances so far this season (and there’s not much to be impressed about.)  They will factor in how each team’s roster looked at the time of the draft and give their reasons as to why the selection would be made while adding some witty banter along the way.

Check out The Sports Bank’s 2014 NBA Mock Draft.

Milwaukee Bucks offering free hot chocolate for everyone tonight


milwaukee-bucks-andrew-wiggins

The Milwaukee Bucks are the worst team in the NBA, with an 18% winning percentage. They’re so bad that there’s a nine point winning percentage gap between them and the NBA ‘s penultimate team, the Orlando Magic. The joke we have in Chicago is: “Milwaukee Bucks: Milwaukee’s Big Ten Team.”

The Milwaukee Bucks don’t have a lot of Big Ten players on their roster, we’re just parodying the silly marketing slogan of NU – “Northwestern: Chicago’s Big Ten Team.”

Given that the Bucks are as hot as the weather, attendance at the Bradley Center is deservedly hurting. So the Milwaukee Bucks are making a desperate ploy for some fans and some attention. Because right now they rightfully have very little of both.

Detailing the pathetic suckitude of the NBA Eastern Conference


milwaukee-bucks-NBA

When you look at the NBA ‘s Eastern Conference, well first it hurts your eyes, then when you look at it again it hurts your everything. Seriously, look at the NBA playoff race in the East. It’s laughably bad. It’s high in unintentional comedy. Before the Atlanta Hawks won their last game, they were 12-12, and the #3 seed. Yes, a friggin #3 seed was only .500!!!

Your #4 seed Boston Celtics are under .500! Yes, a losing team projected to get home court advantage in the NBA playoffs. I’m not joking, And even though the Celts are going through a complete and total rebuild, (yes Brad Stevens has his hands full) they still lead their division.

New website tracks Andrew Wiggins NBA tanking ranking hourly


milwaukee-bucks-andrew-wiggins

Want to know how your team is doing in the Andrew Wiggins sweepstakes? Well, there’s a Tanking for Wiggins website out there. And it’s updated hourly. So think of it as the 2014 NBA Draft order as a stock ticker. There are many horrible excuses for NBA teams, the Milwaukee Bucks come to mind first as they currently “lead” in the Wiggins race. Of course, the Bucks are in this position almost every year.

But in ’13-’14 the Bucks have plenty of company. No team will of course admit that they’re tanking for Andrew Wiggins, or Jabari Parker, or Aaron Gordon. Or Julius Randle, but we know it’s going on.
