2007–08 Milwaukee Bucks season

The 2007–08 Milwaukee Bucks season was the 40th season of NBA basketball in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.[1] It began in October. The Bucks finished with just 26 wins in the weak Eastern Conference and as a result Larry Krystkowiak was fired after just one season as coach, one day after the season officially ended.[2] Scott Skiles was then appointed coach soon after to a four-year contract.[3]
