Take a mental picture of the Bucks

Take a good look at the Milwaukee Bucks [1] because there are very few chances to see them during the regular season. The team doesn’t come back to Boston again (the Celtics go to Milwaukee twice [2]) and, as Andrew Bogut [3] pointed out, they don’t get much national coverage either. The Bucks are ok with that, though.

‘€œGoing under the radar a little bit is something we’re obviously used to,’€ Bogut said. ‘€œWe never really get attention, even when we had winning seasons back in the early 2000s. Milwaukee isn’t a big city and we don’t get that much attention nationally. I think we only have one ESPN game this year. But regardless of that I think it’s better for us.”

Charlie Villanueva [4], who played college ball in the spotlight at UConn, doesn’t thrive on the attention either.

‘€œThat’s the way we want it. We want to be under the radar,’€ he said. ‘€œNot a lot of people are talking about the Bucks or us acquiring (Richard) Jefferson [5] and Luke Ridnour. But that’s the way we want it. We want to be under the radar and at the end of the season we’ll see where we stand and I think we’ll be in a good position.’€

Considering the way the Bucks are keeping it close with the Celtics [6] tonight, it wouldn’t be out of the question to see them back in Boston for the early rounds of the playoffs.
