Bucks looking at JR Smith

The Milwaukee Bucks are bringing in free agent JR Smith today, according to The Atlantic. The 32-year-old was cut Monday by the Cleveland Cavs and, coincidentally enough, the Bucks are on the hunt for another shooter. Smith, a career 37.3-percent shooter from deep, played in just 11 games last season. He was expelled by the […]

Giannis rated 96 on NBA2k 20. Unrelated: Giannis says he’s at 60% of his potential

OK, so they’re unrelated to each other, but the NBA2k 20 ratings just came out and Giannis Antetkokounmpo is at 96. In unrelated news, the NBA MVP recently said he’s just over halfway to his ability. “I think I can get better,” the reigning NBA MVP told ESPN’s Ohm Youngmisuk. “I think I am at 60 […]

With 2 HRs, Bellinger takes MLB lead from Yelich

In a 16-2 blowout, the Los Angeles Dodgers Cody Bellinger knocked two out on Monday night against the Philadelphia Phillies. That gives the 24-year-old first baseman 33 on the season — one more than Milwaukee Brewers slugger Christian Yelich for the MLB lead. Mike Trout and Pete Alonso each have 30 home runs on the […]

Guess who’s not a Top 5 QB in Madden 20

The debut of Madden 20 is right around the corner, Aug. 2. The player and team ratings have been released and, while the Green Bay Packers are among the Top 5 teams in the game and they have a No. 1 player, Aaron Rodgers is not among the Top 5 quarterbacks. The top honor goes […]

Giannis spends day with Yankees. WATCH: Batting needs work

Perhaps it’s part of the New York Knicks’ plan. After whiffing on superstar free agents, perhaps the team is, again, looking two years away, to Giannis Antetokoumpo’s free agency. The NBA MVP spent the day with the New York Yankees. And, speaking of whiffing: But, for those Milwaukee Buck fans worried that the Greek Freak […]

Brewers don’t fair well in All-Star game, won 4-3 by AL

CLEVELAND — It wasn’t a memorable night for Milwaukee Brewers in the All-Star game. Josh Hader didn’t play. Christian Yelich went 0-for-2 with a strikeout. Mike Moustakas was 0-for-2, including a chance to tie or take the lead in the eighth inning. Brandon Woodruff pitched a somewhat forgettable ⅔ an inning. And Yasmani Grandal ended […]

Should the Bucks go after Kyle Korver?

The Phoenix Suns waived Kyle Korver on Monday. The 38-year-old shooter is considering signing with the Los Angeles Lakers, Milwaukee Bucks or Philadelphia 76ers once he clears waivers, according to ESPN.

Bucks among teams working out Ellis, Stoudemire

Monta Ellis is trying to make a comeback and it could be with the Milwaukee Bucks. You could call Ellis a hero for Milwaukee — and the Bucks heroes for Golden State. It was Ellis and Brandon Jennings that led the Bucks to a 38-44 record during the 2012-13 season, and the 15th pick in […]

Well, maybe it’s a good thing Yelich didn’t participate in home run derby

Christian Yelich said it had always been a dream to be in the home run derby. He was slated to be the top seed in the eight-player bracket but back issues kept him out. Lucky for him, too, because Vladimir Guerrero Jr. would have slaughtered him. The rookie hit a record 29 home runs in […]
