Bucks tickets always sell quickly, with fans eager to see their fans live. While the
Bucks may not have won too much over the past 10 years, their fans have never
wavered in their support. They still get Milwaukee Bucks tickets with the same
enthusiasm and have never stopped making noise and showing incredible passion
during the games.
Bucks fans have always prided themselves on unconditional support of their
team. Where other basketball teams, such as the Lakers and Celtics, might have
bandwagon fans that only follow in times of great success, the citizens of Milwaukee
have always taken pride in their basketball team. They know that they may not have
the means to compete with the very best, but they still enjoy the basketball show
that the players put on for them. In 2012 the Bucks have managed to recruit Monta
Ellis, Ekpe Udoh, and Kwame Brown in a trade with the Golden State Warriors.
Milwaukee Bucks tickets are sure to sell even better after the capture of Ellis, a
player who reached stardom in San Francisco.
Ever since 1977, "Bango" has been the official mascot of the Bucks. Fans have
really taken to their official mascot, often having a terrific time with him pre and
post-game. The mascot has served the Bucks well, as he is able to perform some
incredibly acrobatic feats on the court. This helps to keep Bucks fans entertained and
plays a crucial part in raising their spirits before the game.
11-28-13: The Milwaukee Bucks have lost ten straight games, but a slow return to health for some of their core players is allowing them to stay competitive. Two of the last four games went to over time before the Bucks ran out of steam. The 2-12 Bucks have the second worst record in the league so far, but Brandon Knight, Ersan Ilyasova and Zaza Pachulia are all back in the starting lineup, allowing a solid rotation to finally form – and allowing rookies Nate Wolters and Giannis Antetokounmpo to develop at a more reasonable pace, on the bench.
11-22-13: The winter malaise has already begun in Milwaukee as the once promising 2-2 start has turned into a six-game losing streak for the Bucks. The closest game during the losing streak was a three-point loss to the equally bad Orlando Magic. Ersan Ilyasova, Brandon Knight and LARRY SANDERS! have all missed significant time and the Bucks have regularly had to patch together lineups featuring the likes of Nate Wolters, Khris Middleton and Ekpe Udoh. Fun! At 2-8 on the year, there is little hope in Milwaukee until the young guns can get healthy.
11-15-13: The Bucks continue to be without Luke Ridnour and just when they got Brandon Knight back into the rotation, they lost Caron Butler to a shoulder injury. The lack of healthy bodies hasn’t allowed Milwaukee to play at their highest level, as they’ve three straight games in week three to sit at just 2-5 on the year.
11-8-13: Rookie point guard Nate Wolters has been thrust into major action in the early going of the 2013 season, thanks to injuries to Brandon Knight and Luke Ridnour. Thanks to a balanced game and poise on the court, he’s helped the Bucks avoid a huge hole early. Milwaukee is a decent 2-2 through four games, while they’ve been in every game so far and could easily be 4-0. Relying on defense and team play on offense, the Bucks could continue to surprise once at full health.
11-1-13: New head coach Larry Drew hopes that the Bucks’ 1-5 preseason record is not a sign of things to come. The organization added Brandon Knight, O.J. Mayo and Caron Butler in the offseason to bolster the team’s offense. During the preseason, they picked up both the fourth-year contract option on Knight and third-year option on John Henson. Henson had a productive preseason as he scored 10 points per game and shot better than 55 percent from the field. He is ready for a season in which the Bucks are looking for their second consecutive playoff appearance.
10-18-13: The Milwaukee has fallen on hard times this preseason going 0-4 so far. Caron Butler and Brandon Knight have been bright spots for this Bucks team so far this season as they has been leading Milwaukee in scoring going for double digits in the last two games. Milwaukee has three preseason games left before they begin the regular season:
- October 21 @ Chicago
- October 23 vs New York Knicks
- October 25 vs Toronto
8-29-13: The Bucks have agreed to a deal that will send Ish Smith and Slava Kravtsov to the Phoenix Suns for Caron Butler. The 33-year-old Bulter, will make $8 million this season on an expiring contract.
8-23-13: In another roster-turning offseason, the Bucks continue to revamp and retool as they try to find the magic mixture of success. Out are Brandon Jennings, Monta Ellis and J.J. Redick. In are Brandon Knight, O.J. Mayo and the Greek wonder child that is Giannis Antetokounmpo. Say that three times fast. Milwaukee will look to build around Larry Sanders and John Henson up front, and hope that Brandon Knight rediscovers his mojo in a new environment.
Brandon Jennings and his new Detroit Pistons squad will visit Milwaukee for the first time on Wednesday, December 4th. The defending champion Miami Heat will come to town just once this season, on Saturday March 29th. The Chicago Bulls will make the trek north on Friday, December 13th and again on Friday, January 10th. Lob City will visit Milwaukee on Monday, January 27th.

Bucks 2013 Draft Summary
Round 1, Pick 15: SF Giannis Adetokunbo, Greece.
6-12-13: The Bucks have an interesting offseason to say the least. With their two best players; Monta Ellis and Brandon Jennings both headed for free agency, the organization will have to decide on which guard they would like to keep. The Bucks made the playoffs as an eighth seed mainly due to a weak conference and were swept by the Miami Heat. Milwaukee will select 15th in this year’s draft. It would be wise if they leaned toward replacing one of their guards who will likely sign elsewhere. Next season the Bucks will have a new head coach in Larry Drew, formerly the head man of the Atlanta Hawks.
2-27-13: The Milwaukee Bucks are 28-28 as an 8th seed in the East. One of the only deals that took place prior to the trading deadline was the Bucks acquiring sharp-shooter JJ Reddick form the Orlando Magic. The Bucks have a 14-14 record both at home and on the road. Look for them to improve their play at home if they want to make the playoffs and advance. The Bucks have won two in a row and their next two opponents will be the Raptors and Jazz. Monta Ellis hit a wild game winning three pointer against the rockets to give his team a 110-107 victory in Houston. Reddick has fit in nicely so far averaging 14 points per game in the three games since he was dealt to the Bucks.
11-26-12 : Currently the Bucks sit atop what is probably the weakest division in the league. With a mediocre 6-5 record the Bucks let what could have been a huge win slip away from them in Miami. No team should look past this group that possesses an extremely explosive back court in Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis. The Bucks score around 100 points per game but give up just as many also. The Bucks are a playoff team but most likely a first round exit.
