Here are a couple notes on the Bucks, a team that begins the 2012/13 season with playoff expectations.
- Ridiculous Upside's Keith Schlosser takes a look at three players in the D-League who could make Milwaukee's roster. They are Alando Tucker, Orien Greene, and Eddie Gill. A major reason for why these guards have a chance is their collective experience in the NBA, which could be useful as they go through preseason.
- Not all veterans are willing to accept the "mentor" role once their career begins to wind down. However, the Bucks are fortunate in that they have more than one veteran looking to make life easier for the younger guys, writes JSOnline.com's Charles F. Gardner. Players such as Drew Gooden, Mike Dunleavy, and Samuel Dalembert should be great for the Bucks' chemistry as they try to make the postseason.
