Default Re: Bucks waive Bruce Bowen

Bowen is definitely going to have his jersey retired in the AT&T Center.

two-time runner up for DPOY (05,06 I believe lost to Wallace both times)
5x all-defensive first team
3x all-defensive second team
3x champion
500 consecutive games played between 2002 and 2008 (300+ starts)

assuming their contracts were the same, I'd take him over d. george 10/10 times. Averages more minutes, plays more games, and is the better defender... even at 38.

I also agree that it's retirement or going back to the spurs for Bowen. He's grounded in San Antonio, with family, business, and his foundation. I've heard other teams are interested (Orlando) but I don't think he takes it.
