How the Story Should be Redd

Posted by By at 18 March, at 00 : 39 AM Print

Twice in the past 2 years has Milwaukee Bucks former All-Star Michael Redd had major reconstructive surgery on his knee. And twice now he will attempt a comeback to the game he so loves when he returns to the court within the next week.

Michael Redd whose All-Star play earned him an enormous 6 year deal worth $91 million dollars isn’t ready to just take the money to the bank and cash in. His pride won’t allow for that. As Redd has worked his way back (again) into playing condition, The Bucks ready themselves for their former leader to return.

With only 15 games to go in the Regular Season, the 26-41 Bucks are only 2.5 games back of the Indiana Pacers who have only won 3 of their past 10 games. Clearly, the window is open for them to make a playoff push. Nothing would help them more than a returning Redd and his All-Star form of the past of low to mid 20 point per game totals. The Bucks have brought in John Salmons, Corey Maggette and Carlos Delfino to shore up the 2/3. None of these men, however are able to provide the scoring touch and leadership Redd once gave the Bucks.

Redd surprised the NBA world as a late 2nd round draft pick (43rd overall) as he has been an All-Star and USA Gold Medal winner. Never would anyone have thought his career would end up as successful as it has been as he began his career buried on the bench playing behind Ray Allen and Glenn Robinson on the depth chart.

Michael Redd has against all odds continuously succeeded. He has a career resume that is definitely worth bragging about and hopes that his return in the next week can help lead his team back into the Playoffs.

His pull back trigger like shot is amazing to watch and one can assume is even more difficult to stop. The smooth stroke he hopefully will once again return like the 8 3pt fg performance he let loose against the Rockets back in 2002.

Whether or not he regains his past form that made him the Bucks MVP winner between 2004-2008, Redd’s return to the court hopefully signifies a return to the playoffs for the Bucks organization.

Redd’s career scoring average of 20.3 ppg and his 3pt range are a thing of beauty and hopefully this return to the court is permanent. For Redd, The Bucks and most importantly the Bucks fans!

    I’ve been enjoying your blog very much. I am the mother of 5 wonderful kids and although none are famous, they are all All-Stars to me. My guess is that your son is Marcus Williams.

    I look forward to reading your blogs in the future.
