My Guess Is a Little of Both – Since Jim Boylan took over for Scott Skiles the Bucks have gone 6-2, looking like an almost different team even though it’s pretty much the same team. Skiles always had a reputation of wearing out his welcome with players & while it’s a notion I really hadn’t put much thought into perhaps it’s the correct notion. You think of the term professional & it’s generally equated to individuals who are good at their job, whatever job that is including being a pro athlete.  Under poor leadership & management any professional can lose their enthusiasm for the job & begin to put in less than professional effort. We’ve all been in that situation where we have a manager or leader who doesn’t inspire us, so we’re less inspired to do our jobs. Then that manager is replaced with someone who does provide encouragement & leadership and it makes us want to do our jobs better, even though we’re basically the same person with the same skills we had under the previous person.  I know it’s a fool’s errand to try and compare us regular working stiffs to professional athletes, the math doesn’t work.  In this one instance though maybe it does equate in that removing the uncaring & perhaps unmotivated Scott Skiles was the spark the Bucks needed to start caring again & be committed about their jobs under the leadership of someone who cared themselves.  I’m not about to say the new, committed Bucks under Jim Boylan can continue these winning ways &/or be in serious contention for a ring come close of season because I don’t believe the talent is there across the board. I will say that these new Bucks are a lot more fun to watch & for a Bucks’ fan sometimes that’s all we can ask for.
