The cynic would say that Milwaukee star Michael Redd was jinxed by the ESPN guy who picked him as the best player in the Eastern Conference through the season's opening third.

Yet not even I, Redd's unofficial publicist, would have left our favorite lefty in the game with the Bucks down 11 and only 14 seconds left, which proved just long enough for Redd to suffer a knee strain that will keep him out at least a month.
