Charlotte Bobcats at Milwaukee Bucks game preview

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

"Turmoil" is a good word to use in describing the Bucks. So is "confused." So maybe "Confused turmoil" is the best way to describe their team.

They rely on Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis to run their offense, which is a very brave course of action. Both are rather ball-dominant guards who aren't afraid to shoot. It's not like they're without players to pass to, though. Ersan Ilyasova, J.J. Redick and Mike Dunleavy are all solid shooters. When Milwaukee rolls, they can get up and down the court and find their sharpshooters. And at other times, they dig themselves into big holes as Jennings and Ellis dribble around find inefficient low-percentage jumpers.

In brighter news for Milwaukee, LARRY SANDERS! is turning into a legitimate defensive behemoth. He's already a top shot-blocker in the league and is starting to have some good offensive games at the same time.

They have some solid young talent but there's been so much confusion in what team they're building, how they're building it and the turmoil from coaches that don't fit, they seem doomed to waste away as a borderline playoff/purgatory team for years.

Oh, and it doesn't help when Brandon Jennings blasts his coach on Twitter.

The Bobcats have been a heck of a lot more fun to watch lately and with any luck, they'll continue to play their new brand of basketball based in more off-ball movement leading to more efficient scoring.
