For his stellar shooting and rebound averages for the past week, Milwaukee Bucks center Andrew Bogut was named Eastern Conference Player of the Week. Bogut averaged 19.3 points per game and around 14 rebounds. Now that's what I'm talking about! It seems like Andrew Bogut has finally come into his own.
Things are looking pretty good for our Milwaukee Bucks right now. They've surpassed everyone's expectations and have already won two more games than they did at the end of last year. The Bucks players and coaches are keeping a pretty cool head about the whole thing, recognizing that they have to keep up a strong fight to make it to the playoffs, but you know what?! I'm going to relish in their triumphs for a quick minute!
I'm so excited for the Milwaukee Bucks that I'm practically foaming at the mouth. Now, not to jump the gun here, but the Bucks HAVE THE SECOND BEST OVERALL RECORD (behind the Dallas) in the league following the all-star break!!!! ESPN has ranked them 8th overall in their power rankings. THEY HAVE WON 12 of their last 13 games! If they playoffs started tomorrow, the Bucks would be seeded FIFTH! The Milwaukee Bucks knew the playoffs were in reach if they stepped it up after the all-star break and that is exactly what they did; they stepped it up. Even better, the Milwaukee Bucks are boasting a new rally cry: FEAR THE DEER!!!!!! Not only is this phrase plastered across a downtown Milwaukee billboard, it's also a hashtag on Twitter.
I can't wait to see what the rest of March and April have in store for our Milwaukee Bucks. In fact, I'm getting Milwaukee Bucks tickets at the Bradley Center for the remainder of the season. Fear the deer!
