National Basketball (Word) Association: How The Blogging World Views The Milwaukee Bucks

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

This week's edition of SB Nation theme day offered up a unique challenge: could a group of people known for blathering endlessly about their respective teams and the NBA in general manage to condense their views of each team to just a single word?

We didn't really know if the results would be surprising, interesting or insightful, but the end result offers a quick litmus test for what intelligent observers of NBA basketball think of when they consider each franchise. So what does the blognoscenti say about our dear Milwaukee Bucks?

Without further ado, here's the data-dump:

deer
Purple
Mediocre
Mediocre!
Unremarkable
Forgotten
Okay
forward-thinking
irrelevant
beer
stuck
afterthought
Forgotten
Nada
Deer
gunners
Coached
Mo' Mopeddy for 2012-13
decent
Average
Bland
Between
Schizophrenic
Purgatory
Fear the Deer
In-between
Bango
Cool.

Overall? Not terribly surprising in my mind--lots of references to mediocrity (once in exclamatory fashion!), some pity, and some appreciation. Here's the summary:

Positive: 3
Negative: 12
Lukewarm: 5
Something Else: 8

What I think is perhaps more interesting is something that the gang at Blazers Edge did: a reader-driven word association for each roster player. So let's turn the tables and put the ball in your court: 14 players, 14 words. Fill out the form below, feel free to post them in the comments below and we'll post the complete results next week.
