Kobe Bryant is set to be featured in a Showtime documentary airing in November. Titled, “Kobe Bryant’s Muse,” the documentary will cover much of the past season that saw Bryant forced to sit out all but six games. The injury was the first in Bryant’s career to keep him sidelined for a significant portion of a season, but wasn’t enough to keep the Lakers from signing Bryant to a two-year, $48 million contract extension. He will be turning 36 next month, and will be
LAS VEGAS- Here at the Hard Rock Hotel, the Milwaukee Bucks are 250-1 to win next year’s NBA title, the longest odds in the league. They even surpass the tank-to-the-bank Philadelphia 76ers, whose top draft pick may sit out the entire regular season for the second consecutive year. But for people not named Jason Kidd, the Bucks aren’t playing for next season. With a pair of 19-year-old kids oozing with potential, showing their natural abilities on the UNLV campus, it’s easy to
Milwaukee isn’t exactly seen as a prime sports market. The Milwaukee Bucks are considered one of the least desirable teams in the NBA, and the Brewers are far from royalty in the MLB. They resemble what you’d expect of a passionate hockey fan base, but don’t have an NHL team. Only the Green Bay Packers hold a big stake in sports fan’s minds.

Over the weekend, it was reported that Jason Kidd was eyeing the coaching job of the Milwaukee Bucks after failing to come to terms with the Brooklyn Nets for a high position in the front office. That news left some to wonder what would happen to Larry Drew if the Bucks decided to go after Kidd. On Monday, it was reported that the Bucks would send two second-round draft picks to the Nets to allow Kidd to walk out of the remaining
With many around the league waiting for free agency to kick off at midnight, whether curious to see what happens with LeBron James, Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade and Carmelo Anthony—all of whom opted out of their contracts in hopes of competing for NBA championships—or waiting to see what teams establish themselves as 2014-15 contenders, some teams are already making moves. Enter the Milwaukee Bucks and Brooklyn Nets. As you’ve likely heard by now, the Bucks have agreed to trade two second-round draft
Jason Kidd didn’t just burn a bridge with the Nets. He basically set it ablaze with an entire gas station’s fuel supply. Once groomed to be the face of the franchise, Kidd will now have all his images removed from Barclays Center – perhaps even his retired jersey hanging from the rafters.

In what should have been a quiet Saturday evening around the NBA, was anything but as news spread that Brooklyn Nets head coach Jason Kidd has permission to speak with the Milwaukee Bucks about a potential role. The news was first reported by Tim Bontemps of the New York Post. After denying Jason Kidd’s demand to oversee basketball operations, Nets have given Bucks permission to speak to him: http://t.co/vVxb7YxkGn The news comes as a surprise for several reasons, the most glaring being
