The Milwaukee Bucks will open their 2014-15 NBA season on the road against the Charlotte Hornets. They will also be featured in just two nationally-televised games

The Milwaukee Bucks will open their 2014-15 NBA season on the road against the Charlotte Hornets.

 

The Bucks will also have just two nationally-televised games, per The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Michael Hunt:

 

 

"The Milwaukee Bucks may have made off-season news with an ownership change, new arena plans, the selection of Jabari Parker with the second pick in the NBA draft and the hiring of high-profile coach Jason Kidd.

 

"But a league-worst 15-67 last year virtually assured them of almost no national-television love this season.

 

"The Bucks' 2014-15 schedule that was released Wednesday includes just two national games, both on NBA TV; Dec. 29 at Charlotte and Jan. 15 against the New York Knicks in London, their first regular-season overseas game in the franchise's 47-year history.

 

"The Bucks will open the season for the 30th consecutive year on the road, Oct. 29, at Charlotte.

 

"Although the Bucks typically get a Saturday night home opener in exchange for opening on the road, this year they will open at the BMO Harris Bradley Center on Friday, Oct. 31, against (the) Philadelphia (76ers).

 

"The Bucks marquee home games will occur late in the season. Defending NBA champion San Antonio (Spurs) will make its only Milwaukee appearance on March 18. The Cleveland Cavaliers, favored to win the title this year with the return of LeBron James, are in town March 22 and April 8. 

 

"The Chicago Bulls will visit on Nov. 5 and April 1. 

 

 

"Some of the better early home games include Oklahoma City (Thunder) on Nov. 11, the Dallas Mavericks on Dec. 3 and the Miami Heat and Dwyane Wade on Dec. 5."

BucksBasketball.com founder Jeremy Schmidt predicts Milwaukee won't be good in the upcoming 2014-15 season:

 

"But I'll admit -- times have changed. The Bucks aren't going to be good this season. ESPN minds think they'll end up as the worst team in the Eastern Conference. The summer league version of the team won only one game. This is what we all asked for. 


"The team is rebuliding. Juding from the OWN THE FUTURE tagline I've seen on television, Twitter and billboards around town, the future is front and center in the minds of the marketing people, the same way it's on the minds of the front office. So the Bucks are giving you what seems like a pretty rare opportunity to be a part of that future in your own little way, for less money that it would typically take.


"The Bucks want you to 'Cheer the Future' (there's that future thing again), which means they've created a ticket deal for you to engage with. I only write about it because it does seem like a unique promotion, certainly not one that I recall another team doing. But I'm kind of a young fella and I don't pay much attention to what other teams do in terms of season tickets...


"...Maybe that's a bit tough to understand, so let me try and simplify with an example. If you and three of your friends are all about the Bucks, but busy with life stuff, you can purchase two season tickets as a group. If two of the four of you are able to make it to every game, you'll get those seats again next season. 


"If you guys make 35 games collectively, you'll get 75% off and so on.  After that, hopefully you'll all have come up big in your day-to-day life so you can commit more time to the Bucks next year.


"Then you can buy the seats next to it and all four of you can go to a game together for once, rather than battle out which two sad sacks are going to have to watch Larry Sanders foul Al Horford over and over again when the Hawks come to town and which two are going to be there when LeBron James comes to drop in 50 points once again."
