LINKDenver - The Milwaukee Bucks took a 27-37 record with them when they took off Saturday for a five-game Western trip that will open tonight in Denver. And that trip is only a part of a rather unsympathetic schedule they will face down the stretch of the regular season.
The Bucks have vowed to play hard until the end of the season and try to win as many games as possible. But some are wondering that if the Bucks should take a tumble would it have any effect on where guard Michael Redd decides to play next season.
Redd will become a free agent after this season and has expressed a desire to finish his National Basketball Association career in Milwaukee. But nothing is in writing yet, and Redd was asked if the Bucks' final record would do anything to sway his decision.
"No," he said. "I don't think so. That wouldn't be fair."
Even so, Redd made it clear he wanted to be in a winning situation.
"You want to win," he said. "You're in this game to win. You've seen me for five years now and I've never been on a losing team since I've been in Milwaukee. It's not fun (to lose). I mean, you want to win."
