Default Kenny Smith

at halftime in the cavs/celtics game he said the milwaukee bucks are the best 2nd tier tteam in the east, and stated that they're better than the raps, chuck and EJ disagreed.

Didn't Kenny smith not want to play here or something a while back?

Milwaukee?


What a moron! I would say Charlotte is even better talent wise then the Bucks, and even they don't have more talent then us.

I heard that.

Chuck gave us big props and came to our defense. Said... "They're good but they're not better than Toronto."

you can easily argue that milwaukee is playing the best basketball of the 5 teams in the 2nd tier. Yes, they lost by 30 to Houston, but other than that, they've been extremely impressive, and are riding a 5 game winning streak and have the best record in the east in last 10 games. They're 2.5 games behind us, but in 5 days they'll probably be ahead of us in the rankings too. THe only knock on them is that their schedule was pretty easy, altough still not easier than ours.

So I have no issue with that

I do. They're 8th-9th talent wise in the east at best, possibly even 10th.

And their last 5 games:

NY
Detroit
Indiana
NO
Charlotte

Nice wins, but not shocking since all those teams are struggling. They have decent young talent, but no way do they have better talent then us.

Lol.... why do you hate the Raps so much? Honestly... I will never understand it. You have no problem citing MIL's record over the past 10 games to make them seem good but you remain unimpressed with the fact that the Raps have had the 2nd best record IN THE LEAGUE since mid Dec!

MIL's last 10 wins: IND, NOH, NYK, CHA, DET, NJN, IND, NYK, MIA, MIA

And the 2 "quality" teams that they played against.... HOU and ORL... they lost to!

So the Bucks are great for beating on crap teams but the Raps aren't impressive when they do the same?

WTF dude?

Seriously, why does anyone care what these guys say?

They're paid to be entertainers and they generally pull their opinions out of their asses.

I wouldn't lose sleep over it.

Jennings, Redd and Boguts looks pretty good. Would give Toronto a run for their money.

Beyond those three players....not so much. They really have little to no depth. And Jennings is eratic to say the least. And imo Redd is washed up.

good point. I think they are a very good team, and they did blow us out in that game in milwaukee. Credits to Scott Skiles.

And, I havn't heard anything bad from chris webber about raps as much as kenny or that guy who ripped on us when we drafted charlie vilenueva.
I think there is a video of kenny smith putting down Jose Caldy when Aldridge says Jose is one of the best pg in the game lol.

exactly what I was thinking

with that said, we have some tough games coming up, that easily bring down to .500 especially with Bosh out,

I'm not in panic mode yet, but I'm geting close, we should have beat Memphis and Portland we let memphis slip and gave portland away,

Miami and Charlotte are good teams too. So is NOH, they are all .500 or better (charlotte just slipped under this week, but they were at the time). And Indiana kicked our ass pretty badly the last time we played them.
In fact, their schedule was 20% harder than ours (simple math - no statistics involved). And they got one more win.

They've also upgraded themselves, they got a pretty decent piece that fills a need in salmons. They have a top 5 defense in the league. And Bogut is playing out of his mind.

I'm not hating - that's just stupid - how could I hate the team I'm rooting for????. I'm just looking at things objectively. Milwaukee is a hotter team than us right now. Luckily, their remaining schedule is also going to be very tough, slightly tougher than ours in fact.

Again, I think you can easily make the argument that Milwaukee is the best of the 5 - it's not a clear-cut argument, but it's not outrageous by any stretch.

So Milwaukee gets a compliment on national television... THEY DESERVED IT!

It's probably the first time they're on the radar and getting attention all season.

Some of you guys are so freaking sensitive.
