Milwaukee Bucks big Ekpe Udoh is the most interesting man…in Brew City basketball. If there’s another NBA player how leads a book club, I’d like to see it.
“I want to be known for something more than just shooting basketball,” Udoh said at Milwaukee Bucks Media Day yesterday.
The group has about ten members which “keeps in touch with hashtags.”
Now Udoh will have more time for book club, as he’s sidelined for 4-6 weeks.
Ekpe Udoh, the 6th pick in the NBA Draft out of Baylor in 2010, is an intelligent guy and refreshing soundbite. Especially so in the NBA where mostly players are corporatized and speak only in cliches. We wish Udoh and his Milwaukee Bucks teammates the best as Ekpe underwent a successful arthroscopic procedure to alleviate pain in his right knee on Friday, Milwaukee Bucks General Manager John Hammond announced today.
Ekpe Udoh has actually met Betty White via Twitter and told the media yesterday he wants to meet Denzel Washington next.
The Milwaukee Bucks return just 4 players from last year, with Ersan Ilyasova being the Bucks most tenured player. There are 11 new players on the roster.
