Little left over Bucks love from Yi fans?
It's a mystery to us Bucks fans too. There hasn't been one peep about "vote for Luke," from the Bucks PR guys, and he doesn't seem to be a particularly popular player among the fan base that I'm aware of. I'd say that the most popular Bucks this year are Bogut, Sessions, and Mbah a Moute (and of course Redd among the more casual fans).
The leftover Yi love can't be it, because Ridnour has more votes than Yi's current pg, who also happens to be a much better player. Ridnour wasn't even on the team alongside Yi, and the other Bucks (Redd, Bogut, Jefferson) aren't getting a similar vote boost.
I honestly think it's a technical glitch of some kind. Maybe votes for Wade or Iverson are getting miscasted or something like that.
