If the Milwaukee Bucks can stretch their 5-2 start to the season into a similarly successful stretch of 20 games, NBA writers and analysts will definitely start to take notice. The easy storylines that will likely emerge on the national level -- including: (1) "chemistry" is magically making everyone better and (2) Jennings and Ellis are making it work -- but those narratives aren't appealing to us, so Frank and I have put in work to get ahead of the trend and set the record straight .

We also spend plenty of time analyzing the struggles of Ersan Ilyasova and mounting our arguments for how fans should process the failures of the power forward who received a big deal during the offseason. Do we rip Ersan a new one for posting a 4.46 PER over the first seven games of the season? Do we want to send him to the bench? Take a listen and find out where we stand.

Finally, I ask Frank what I should do with my (imaginary) celebratory doves that I purchased to release on the day Doron Lamb made his first three-point shot as a professional player. Trust me, it makes sense.
