Another thing that was huge this season was the section at the Bradley Center called Squad 6. It was a group of fans that would wear crazy stuff to games, stand the whole game, and be very loud to be the Bucks 6th man. Every game I went to this year I was very satisfied with how Squad 6 cheered for the Bucks. Andrew Bogut bought out this section of the stadium and gave tickets to the fans that would work hard during games. It may not be a favorite of other teams in the league, but I really thought it was a good idea. Great job this season by Squad 6, and I can't wait to see what they come up with for next year.
The 2010-11 Bucks team was the most team oriented team Milwaukee has had in awhile. These guys just seemed to know that they needed to work together to win games. If there was one thing this Bucks team lacked this year it was a guy that could go out and score 30 points in a game. It was about balance and heart this season, and this team had a lot of both. Projected to take last in the East this season they did much better than that. Winning 46 games and finishing second in the Central was proof that this team was a surprise of the year. The slogan for the Bucks was Work Hard, Play Hard, and they did just that in 2010.
That being said, Game 7 against the Hawks was maybe the worst game they played all season, but I think we should forget about this one. We need to go into this off season aggressive, and hopefully snag a good draft pick. Not sure what is going to happen with John Salmons, but if he doesn't return to the Bucks, maybe, just maybe they could get a free agent. I do know for sure that Brandon Jennings and Andrew Bogut will be back next season looking to shock teams again. I sure hope we can lock up this young core for awhile to make this a good team for years to come. Also hope that this coaching staff stays around for awhile, because they did a hell of job this year too. All good things must come to end, but I really wished this one would have held off for awhile.
Bucks post will not die however as Winks will do his Bucks Survivor which should be up on Tuesday morning. Hope some people became Bucks fans after this season, and I really hope these Bucks recaps didn't lose any fans. Either way it was one hell of a ride for the Bucks, and now I must go shave my playoff beard off.
