Long after the end of practice, the sound of a bouncing basketball echoed down the hall and up the stairs from the Milwaukee Bucks practice court.
It is Brandon Knight again, coach Larry Drew’s point guard pupil doing the basketball equivalent of staying late after school to study. He’s certainly not giving up in an injury-filled, challenging first season in Milwaukee.
“With Brandon, first of all, every night he steps out on the floor, I know he’s going to give me 110 percent effort,” Drew said.
At 9-43, the Bucks had already clinched a losing campaign before the All-Star break.
