Bucksketball Post: Shades of the 2009 DefenseDEFENSE!

I thought this was a relevant place to add a new post on Milwaukee's defense.
A part I liked:
Avoiding Shortcuts and Maintaining Consistency Throughout Your Workday. It sounds like a self help book for middle managers across the country. That’s essentially what the Bucks are looking to do, what every team is looking to do. The way you or I might struggle to resist watching Dwyane Wade kick Ramon Sessions in the groinon Youtube, players from the Bucks and NBA players all over struggle to suppress the urge to gamble in a passing lane or over help to block a shot.
“You start itchin’, you start itchin’,” Ekpe Udoh said after the game about maintaining consistency. “You just gotta stay solid. It’s gonna come. We still have room for improvement. We still have those moments where we have little lapses. We gotta keep getting better. It’s an ongoing process through the whole season.”

I should note that the Bucks are now 8th in defensive rating. Under Skiles, by season:
From 1998 - 2007, the Bucks finished worse than 17 every season and were only outside of the bottom 20 one time. Speaks to the franchise commitiment to defense and Skiles expertise in that area I suppose.
