On paper, the Golden State Warriors don’t appear to be that far off from competing for a spot in the Western Conference Playoffs.  Adding a couple pieces this off-season and getting Stephen Curry, Andrew Bogut, and David Lee 100% healthy will certainly be crucial if Mark Jackson‘s team is going to take that next step.

A year ago, the NBA was starting to Fear the Deer.  The Milwaukee Bucks experienced a resurgence and started to build some momentum in the Eastern Conference.  However, injuries combined with some off-season moves that backfired leave the Bucks searching for answers this off-season.

This definitely happened

The Milwaukee Bucks tossed a proverbial monkey off their backs with a 92-90 victory over the Detroit Pistons Tuesday night. It may have been the size of a Pygmy Marmoset, but it was still a monkey that had prevented the Bucks from beating the Pistons in their previous two meetings.

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.
