Milwaukee Bucks Holding Auditions for Squad 6

Milwaukee Bucks Squad 6
Just as they did last season, the Milwaukee Bucks will be holding auditions for Squad 6 this Thursday. Established by center Andrew Bogut, Squad 6 gained attention among fans for their rowdiness during home Milwaukee Bucks games at the Bradley Center. Bogut himself purchased a block of seats which he then gave to Squad 6 members who proved their worth in cheering abilities. I'm glad to see the return of the Squad 6 during the Milwaukee Bucks 2010-2011 season. They helped make the Bradley Center an exciting atmosphere for home games. Maybe this season I will have to get in on the excitement and audition for the squad. Anyone know where I can purchase a red and green wig?

Milwaukee Bucks Center Andrew Bogut Plays in Five-on-Five Scrimmage | Bogut Rehabs Injury All Summer Long


Milwaukee Bucks center Andrew Bogut did not plan on playing with his teammates at a recent workout, but ended up playing in a five-on-five scrimmage. Bogut has been rehabilitating his injured hand and elbow all summer long and has made significant progress. However, Bogut says he still has a ways to go before his elbow is completely healed. Let's just hope that he does not further injure his elbow during practice!

To protect himself, Andrew Bogut has been wearing a protective sleeve over his elbow and says he will wear it for as long as he needs to. This might mean that Bogut will wear a protective sleeve for the duration of the Milwaukee Bucks 2010-2011 season. Speaking of the Milwaukee Bucks 2010-2011 season, training camp starts on September 28th with the first preseason game on October 5th against the Chicago Bulls. I can hardly believe it's already time for basketball season! I cannot wait to see what the Milwaukee Bucks will do this season!

Milwaukee Bucks Mascot Named NBA Mascot of the Year

Bango named mascot of the year
Bango, the Milwaukee Bucks mascot, was named NBA Mascot of the Year at the mascots' annual meeting. During the playoffs, Bango accomplished an incredible feat when he did a back flip slam dunk off of a ten foot ladder during a home playoff game. I had the pleasure of watching this event live and little did I know that I was witnessing a piece of mascot history. This is a great honor for both the Milwaukee Bucks and Bango, who has been the team's mascot for the past 32 seasons. I wonder what Bango will have in store for us during the Milwaukee Bucks 2010-2011 season.

Milwaukee Bucks Sign Second-Round Draft Pick Darington Hobson


Things are looking good for the Milwaukee Bucks' 2010-2011 roster as the team just signed second-round draft pick Darington Hobson. The addition of Hobson means the Milwaukee Bucks have fifteen assured contracts and a full roster.

Hobson, a 6-foot-7 guard, played two years at a junior college before playing for New Mexico. After a stellar year of basketball as a junior at New Mexico, Hobson was named conference player of the year. Hobson was the 37th overall draft pick in this year's draft.

The more I hear about the Milwaukee Bucks' roster, the more excited I am for the start of the Milwaukee Bucks 2010-2011. I don't want to get ahead of myself, but I definitely see a playoff run in the Milwaukee Bucks future.

Will Milwaukee Bucks Center Andrew Bogut Sit Out the First Month of the Season?


Milwaukee Bucks Center Andrew Bogut has been rehabilitating his elbow and hand after his horrific injury during last year's regular season. However, the question remains, will the Milwaukee Bucks Center make it on time for the Milwaukee Bucks 2010-2011 regular season?

Milwaukee Bucks Center Andrew Bogut had two surgeries; one for his hand and one for his elbow. Due to fluid backup in the elbow, Bogut's recovery has been a little slower than anticipated. Bogut has been working out diligently and is definitely in shape; he just doesn't have complete range of motion in his elbow. He can dribble and use his hand, but he wants to make sure that he is 100 percent for the beginning of the season. His goal is to make it to training camp, but because the NBA season lasts for a long time, Bogut does not want to start the season without feeling 100%. I really hope our beloved Andrew Bogut can start the season on time, but he should not overdo it if he is not ready to play. Here's to a speedy recovery!
