Jamaal Magloire Mini-Interview
Milwaukee Bucks center Jamaal Magloire is averaging 8.7 points, 10.2 blocks (#10 in the league) and 1.5 blocks per game this season. The 6-11, 260-pound Toronto native was traded to the Bucks from the Hornets just a few days before the season started. He's been a decent fit.
