Milwaukee Bucks Won’t Sneak Up On Anybody This Year

Bucks Fear the Deer

Last year, I picked the Milwaukee Bucks to finish in last place in the Eastern Conference.  Whoops.  Instead, Scott Skiles did one of the best coaching jobs in the league, Brandon Jennings was ten times better than anyone imagined, and the Bucks were one of the surprise teams in the NBA.

In the process, basketball was rejuvenated in Milwaukee.  With a few off-season acquisitions, the Bucks are hoping they can keep the momentum going and that the league will once again Fear the Deer.

Boston Celtics: The Forgotten Eastern Conference Team?

Boston Celtics

It is hard to believe a team that played for the NBA title last season has flown under the radar like the Boston Celtics have this off-season.  I guess that is what happens when LeBron, Wade, and Bosh join forces.  Tonight we will see the two Eastern Conference powers tip-off the season.

For the Celtics, it is a marathon not a sprint.  If they can stay healthy and hit their stride by the start of the post-season, Boston should contend with the Miami Heat for Eastern supremacy.
