Eastern Conference Semi-Finals
Loose First Round of Playoffs
Barely miss the Playoffs
Sub 25 win season
This is the NBA Thread to be in!
The place where THE DEER is FEARED!
Bring on the season, bring on the teams, bring on all that you've got and you'll see the power of the DEER!
I'm hoping that the Bucks can ride from the success of last season and lift their success to new heights.
Can this team with their new acquisitions go deep into the playoffs? Can this team be the new team to crack into the top 4 of the East? Is this the year that Andrew Bogut and possibly Brandon Jennings get chosen for their first All Star Appearance? So many questions and so much expections on this solid Eastern Team.
Biased Verdict: I can imagine this team riding on the shoulders of my compatriot, Andrew Bogut and going deep into the Eastern Conference Playoffs where they will meet the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals but go down 4-1. Andrew Bogut gets selected for the All Star Game and Brandon Jennings and Bogut both get selected for All NBA Third Team Selection.

Make no doubt about it: this is a very good team. The Milwaukee Bucks have a great line-up from top to bottom, although they need somebody behind Andrew Bogut (whatever happened to Primoz Brezec? He had a two or three incredible years and then fell off the planet).
Right now, this team is a step behind Boston, Miami, and Orlando. They might be as good as Orlando right now, but they have to prove it first. Looking at the rosters, I think they're better than Chicago and Atlanta.
Nevertheless, I don't think they can get out of the second round of the play-offs. Not yet. Maybe they will improve over the year (Salmons was a great addition and he never had the luxury of a training camp last year).
"I really like the attitudes of eagles. They never give up. When they grab a fish or something else, they never let it go. It doesn't matter. In a book, they write they find a skeleton of [an] eagle and there is no fish. It means that the fish beat him and killed him, but he didn't let go." -- Donatas Motiejunas
