The Bucks took a chance on Brook Lopez last season as a free agent, signing him to a one year, $3.4 million deal. Brook proved to be worth the deal and then some, as he became the only player in NBA history to hit 150 three pointers and block 150 shots.

The Bucks rewarded Brook with a four year, $52 million contract this summer, and while his scoring and shooting numbers have gone down, Brook has become one of the most feared rim protectors in the league. Should Brook be seriously considered for Defensive Player of the Year?


Bucks legend and current Fox Sports Wisconsin TV Analyst Marques Johnson joined Bill on Friday to answer, and to talk all things Bucks as we head into March: 

- Why do the Bucks not get the national respect they deserve?

- Are the Bucks focused on the regular season, or are they more concerned with the playoffs?

- What has Brook Lopez done to improve his defense so dramatically this season?

- What has he seen from Marvin Williams in his short stint with the Bucks so far?

- Will the Bucks’ depth and bench put them over the top to win the championship?
