The Milwaukee Bucks have had an extremely disappointing season thus far. Losing many of their key players for periods of time and not knowing when they were going to be back. The Bucks have not had a practice with everyone on the 15-man roster. That right there just says how the year has gone.
With that being said, should the Bucks just “blow off” the rest of the season in hopes of obtaining a good lottery pick?
Yes and no, some fans like me say, “Yes, blow off the rest of the season and draft Kemba Walker and play him alongside Jennings!” While other fans say, “No, let’s make that playoff push, we can get the eighth seed, maybe even the seventh seed!” But for what reason? To be swept in the first round or maybe win a game or two? (Don’t get me wrong, I’d love the Bucks to make the playoffs and win in the first round but let’s be realistic please.)
But what should the Bucks look for in the 2011 NBA Draft? Well, the need for a backup center is still there. But Larry Sanders has shown that he could become a good backup to Bogut but still needs time to develop.
When it comes to centers in this year’s draft, the top guys are Enes Kanter, Jonas Valanciunas, and Donatas Motiejunas. I am always very skeptical about foreign players, due to the fact that they did not play against the best of the best like all the NCAA players. These players listed above are not bad but are they as good as they have been talked about? Kanter has been compared to Andrew Bogut, Skiles and Hammonds would love to have another Bogut on the team.But I’d rather the Bucks draft a player that played in the NCAA and is a “sure talent.”
Here are a few options for the Milwaukee Bucks in the 2011 NBA Draft.
