    Semi-Relevant Trivia:

    The Milwaukee Bucks have been around for 46 seasons
    and have made just a shade over 250 draft selections.
    How many of those players selected have been drafted
    from colleges / universities in Indiana?

    Bucksketball:
    Jeremy Schmidt: Pacers-Bucks Y2K Edition

    Will Glenn Robinson and Coolio be at this game?

    Obviously.

    It’s Y2K night, which feels a lot more like 90s night, but that’s okay. Whatever it takes
    to get everyone reminiscing about Glenn Robinson. The oft-criticized, now fondly
    remembered shooting forward from the very good but not quite great Bucks teams of
    the late 90s and early 2000s will make an appearance before the fourth quarter. He’ll
    be around signing autographs at some point in the evening and he’ll probably thank
    the crowd for showing him great love.

    People will see him and think back about how fun those Bucks teams were, but they’ll
    also think back to conversations everyone had about Big Dog in 1998. There was talk
    about how he was a poor ball-handler, how all he did was shoot jumpers and hated
    playing defense. There was constant discussion of his socks. There were comparisons
    to Grant Hill and Jason Kidd, two players taken after him who went on to have
    superior careers that bounced them around the NBA. As reliable as Robinson was for
    20 points every night, he was just as reliable to be criticized by Bucks fans.

    But ultimately, Bucks fans still liked him. He was just an easy scapegoat. He wasn’t
    as smooth as Ray Allen and wasn’t seen as the leader Sam Cassell was. He was
    around the longest and seemed to have the most flaws. So when Bucks fans were sad
    or mad, they often cursed Robinson’s name and salivated at the thought of Tim
    Thomas taking his place.

    Well Thomas eventually took his place and delivered half the production at twice the
    price. The Bucks haven’t really found another Big Dog since that one left. Richard
    Jefferson, Corey Maggette, Desmond Mason, Keith Van Horn, Carlos Delfino: Plenty
    of forwards have come and gone since Robinson departed, but few last more than a
    couple of seasons in Milwaukee.

    So while Robinson had his faults, kudos to him for doing one of the things most
    difficult in the NBA: Lasting.

    What to watch for: Bucks

    O.J. Mayo will continue to round out of being round and into a more basketball
    conducive shape. His now infamous defensive gaffe is all anyone remembered from
    his first game back, but Milwaukee’s going to need all the shooting it can get to stick
    with the Pacers on Saturday. He’ll have to play some kind of role.

    More importantly, Ramon Sessions will make his return to Milwaukee. He’ll give
    Milwaukee a legitimate creating and scoring guard off the bench, something the
    Bucks did not have in Gary Neal or Luke Ridnour. Sessions has never been and still
    isn’t much of a 3-point threat, which has limited his effectiveness and minutes
    ultimately, but he finishes well and draws a fair share of fouls. Next to Mayo or
    Brandon Knight, he could be interesting.

    Really, the hope is that he doesn’t take too many minutes away from Nate Wolters
    and is modestly effective at keeping the Bucks offense running smoothly.

    What to watch for: Pacers

    Evan Turner is new. His numbers this season (17.4 points, 3.7 assists and 6.1
    rebounds per game) are inflated thanks to Philly’s breakneck pace, but he’s shown
    he’s at the very least, a slightly below average NBA player who can be effective for
    stretches. How he’ll mix with Lance Stephenson will be interesting. Their styles
    match a bit, but neither is a great 3-point shooter, with Stephenson being capable
    and Turner being terrible.

    In general, it’s always interesting to see how anyone interacts with Stephenson, but
    it’ll be even more interesting...CONTINUE READING AT BUCKSKETBALL

    Yeah I am kind of hoping to see that too, but I'm guessing we won't see him until garbage time. Butler probably picks up those backup wing minutes.

    They just arrived in Indy today, so they probably are taking physicals and all that.

    Hmmm is it wrong for me to hope that he is still out?

    I too want to see Copeland tonight.

    Steve Blake played the day he arrived for GS when he was traded so it's still possible to see them tonight though I'd be very surprised if we did.

    I'm pretty sure they are in Indy and we are in Milwaukee, I doubt they fly over for the second half

    The Warriors played at home, though. We are playing away.

    The Bucks announcers just pointed out that Vogel chose the offensive side of the court for the bench to finish both halves and apparently, that doesn't happen very often. Little do they know, it is because we are bad at offense.
