Yikes...talk about trying to enter the playoffs on a roll. The Pacers are now only a game back. This is a battle for perhaps the most meaningless playoff spot in history....whoever gets it will be home after the first three games.

With all that talent the Bucks should be contending for the best record in the East. I have no idea what's going wrong up there but that team will be broken up during the offseason if they don't make the playoffs. And they are tied with Toronto for the 7th spot so they might avoid New Jersey.

With the talent they have, they should be in the top 3 in the east easily.

I think injuries have played a part, but ego's even moreso. Their big 3 don't (seemingly) gel on court like our big 3 does. Not sure off the court, but when you have this kind of losing, something isn't pretty behind the scenes either.

George Karl has had his blow-ups, whether just or not.

Anthony Mason, from the games I've seen, gives nothing to that team. Or not what the top dogs were hoping for, imo.

And their role players, whether just or not, seem to want a bigger role than what they should.

I don't see a player stepping up and saying follow my lead either. On any night one of our big 3 will do this and the rest follow.

Just some of my observations.

The same could be said for their 'competition' the Pacers. Isaiah Thomas may just be the worst coach in the NBA.

Karl coaching college kids. Now that's a nightmare waiting to happen.

now that's something we should look into...bringing in your own icon..

i do the same thing with dooby and mff.

i think that only one person should be allowed per icon...obviously, that would involve someone bringing in more icons for use...but, it would be cool...allow for more originality...just a thought

I think I was the first one with the bulldog icon. I know I had it before nekked. So he has to change i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif

Yep- I thought they would tear it up this year- instead they SUCK!! Injuries were a part of it- but it looks to me like they have just given up. Bastards

*shudders*

LOL. Only kidding Dooby.

I did bring that up about having to register your icon in the mod lounge a couple weeks ago. DJ hasn't responded yet, which is understandable.

That's the deal with a couple other boards I post on and it's cool cause you can identify a poster by not only their name, but their icon as well.

The Bucks free fall continues with the loss to the Pacers in OT.

Wow, it's hard to believe that they might not make the playoffs afterall.

To be one of the NBA's final four last year and then not make the playoffs the next must be a hard thing for Buck fans to tolerate.

That is one of the biggest collapses in sports history. All they had to do was win about 3 out of ten games to make the playoffs a few weeks ago. Now...they are on the outside looking in. Ugly.
