I hope Conley slips to 6

The Bucks hope he slips to six too. Don't get me wrong, Mo Williams is a nice guard and a fan favorite. But, Conley in a Bucks uniform probably signals the end of the Mo-era. I loved sitting in the Bradley Center last year and watching him play. I loved watching the Mo Williams show up on the jumboTron. He was a bright spot in an otherwise bad year.

Mike Conley Jr. will make all you Bucks fans forget about Mo Williams.

Bucks Bring in High First-Round Picks

The Bucks are spending the week working out potential draft picks at the Cousins Center. Last Friday they brought in Carolina forward Brandan Wright. Monday was Mike Conley in for a very impressive showing. He certainly is at the top of the Bucks list if he falls to number six. Should they get Conley, his first official job as a Milwaukee Buck may be driving Mo Williams to the airport.

Tuesday saw Florida's one-two punch of Al Horford and Corey Brewer. Brewers is a defensive specialist with a sweet looking outside shot. He didn't have the greatest workout, but he has a natural ability to bother shooters at the NBA level today. Popular opinion, including that of Larry Harris, has Horford in another uniform by the time the Bucks pick. He's an impressive big man with an NBA body. Another thing about these two guys; when they walk into a room together they bring four NCAA Championships with them.

Milwaukee has planned to bring in Chinese phenom Yi Jianlian for a look, but he hasn't agreed to work out for the Bucks yet. Yi has stated his strong desire to land in a town with a significant Asian community. 3.6% isn't significant, so you probably won't see him here.

Either way, the Bucks have a great pick in a deep draft. Sure, Brewers tickets are getting hard to come by and the Packers are right around the corner, but I'm already thinking about Bucks tickets.

Bucks Claim 80% Season Ticket Renewal Rate

That's not too shabby, considering the Bucks were practically the most injured and worst coached (at least for the first half) team in the league last year. One would think that Bucks season ticket holders would have jumped ship at a higher rate than that.

Number 6

It's been a couple weeks since the Bucks were dealt the crushing blow of falling to Number 6 in the NBA's 2007 version of the draft lottery. The teams with best shot at getting the top pick - Memphis 25%, Boston 19.9%, Milwaukee 15.6% - fell to the fourth, fifth and sixth spots, respectively.

All the conspiracy theorists out on the street are still grumbling about how the fix is in, talking about how the whole thing seems shadier than Marshall Mathers. They tell me that Lord Stern is just punishing those teams for playing crappy ball and trying to loose games at the end of the year in order to get a better pick. Maybe those guys are just loaded, but it does seem a little fishy.
