Loved Mac, but look forward to hearing Tony Smith. His senior year at MU was outstanding, and I've always felt, underappreciated. In addition, a really good guy and representative of MU.

Think it would have been cool if they had gotten Novak, but no complaints with Smith.  Good get

Novak is working with the Bucks.

Novak is working with the Bucks.

I thought that was only a part time thing.  We'd only need him, what 40 games a year plus travel.  He'd have to want to do it obviously, but I'm sure something could be worked out so he could do both.

Again, no complaints about Smith, I just though that it'd be cool if we got Novak.

He's going to be the full time Bucks Live guy, plus 25 games as an analyst.

Watch out - some are hearing dog whistles.

Just kidding - Tony Smith will be great. He was my first choice, glad he got the gig.

Great addition. Tony has a strong connection to Milwaukee and Marquette, plenty of broadcast experience and knows the game at the highest level.

Plus, he is a great analyst.

So, he knows Jack....and he knows jack.


I found myself going out to the local Urbana-Champaign watering holes every time Tony's Lakers were playing. For a guy who tore it up as a shooting guard at MU, that had to be a tough transition to playing NBA point and trying to replace Magic Johnson.

....and having the task of guarding MJ in the NBA Finals as a rookie!

Smith was still the backup. Seddale Threat was the starting PG.
