    I'm not sure if the TV schedule been released, but I bet this series will have the most games on NBA TV. With the injury to Bogut, the bucks have no chance.

  2. Jared Ras Says:

    I'm not sure if you're aware, but Delfino has played at the SF for most of the season, and Mbah a Moute has played mostly at the PF (though it was by necessity). Jennings can afford the full PG (instead of just "G") as he's played every minute of his season at the point.

  3. Neil Paine Says:

    Thanks, those positions are in our db but haven't been posted on the site yet. They were last updated in 2009, so they won't reflect this year if changes were made, and I only had generic positions for rookies.

  4. Tony Adamson Says:

    I completely agree. That is exactly how I view it. Thanks!
