Kris Humphries is a lot younger than I thought he was, he's been around forever it seems. Anyway, he was the player of the game in the Nets shocker against the Celts. ha. Hopefully Lee's ankle isnt too bad. Guy always gets hurt when he starts making some serious progress.

Scotty is right, Yi sucks. I'd compare him to a more expensive Mbah a Moute who takes more shots.

Except Mbah a Moute plays defense, and has a couple post moves. Yi is garbage.

I wish the NBA would get rid of the zone again. Nothing like seeing guys making millions just sitting there on defense.

Jennings isn't sucking at all. Yes his shooting has been poor but we all knew that coming into the draft. He's still been in the top 5/top 10 in assists, blocks, steals, and rebounds among point guards.

He could be pretty great, if he would be more selective and less of ball hog. The shot obviously needs work as well. He's not turning it over at a bad clip but, he's forcing a lot of empty possessions. Statistically, he's the worst shooter in the league for the minutes he gets...and he has to be top 15 in shots taken. That's not a great mixture.

Ball hog? I'm guessing you really haven't seen him play much then. Early in the season he took alot of shots when Redd got injured and Bogut struggled a bit getting back into form from his back injury. The last 2 months though he's been really focused on creating shots for his teammates.

Yes, ball hog. Unless he's playing like 20 minutes or starts off the game ice cold...the guy shoots all the time. He's down about 4-5 shots per game this month, which is a good start. But it doesnt help that he's still only shooting 35% in those games. He's a bad shooter, he shouldnt be shooting as much as he is, he's hurting his team. Luckily, the rest of the guys have been picking up the slack. I wouldnt complain that much if I were you either because, you're winning but, this will start to hurt the team eventually. His percentages are laughably bad and yet, he keeps firing away.

And as for the last two months...last month, he still shot around his average, this month it has been down but, he's still shooting it at a horrible clip.

Among point guards, he's 5th in steals, 7th in rebounds, and 9th in assists. Even I'm getting tired of this argument and my boner for Brandon Jennings rages harder than any ones I'm pretty sure. My thing is that the numbers don't tell the whole story, I'm pretty sure if you watched him more you'd like him more. Maybe not, but I think so.

I've watched him quite a bit and I think he's vastly overrated. Plus most people were forced fed how great Brandon Jennings was the first couple months and how many teams screwed up by not drafting him, so I don't think it's that surprising people are being harsh on him when he's proven to be a terrible shooter thus far and is above average/good at other skills.

But it doesnt help that he's still only shooting 35% in those games. He's a bad shooter, he shouldnt be shooting as much as he is, he's hurting his team. Luckily, the rest of the guys have been picking up the slack. I wouldnt complain that much if I were you either because, you're winning but, this will start to hurt the team eventually. His percentages are laughably bad and yet, he keeps firing away.

And as for the last two months...last month, he still shot around his average, this month it has been down but, he's still shooting it at a horrible clip.
Just what I thought, you haven't seen him play much. And why do people keep talking about his shooting percentage? We all knew coming into the draft he was a poor shooter. Talk about beating a dead horse. He's a big reason why we've been winning.

He got the credit when the credit was due early on in the season but he's been playing as advertised the past 2-3 months. I could care less about people hating on him because he's helping us win and improving other areas of his game. ROY? Hell no, but I've been damn happy with him so far. If he can improve his shooting over the offseason he's going to be alright.

Because the Bucks are on primetime TV and Sportscenter all the time...

Yes I havent seen him play and yet I post frequently about Bucks games and my Salmons and Ersan love. :/

I know a lot about the Bucks, if you recall, I was telling you all I know about Ersan before this season.

I've seen plenty of games, and I used to be a bit of Wildcats fan, so I'm very familiar with Jennings.

And it's not beating a dead horse...right now, he is the worst shooter in the league. You cant just brush that off, because he is leading to many empty possessions, which are just as bad as turnovers.

I actually like a lot of the other things Jennings brings to the table but, he is not someone I would want on my team. He goes into AI mode every now and then (less lately), but unlike classic AI, he cannot shoot at all. It's just frustrating to see.
