The 2007–08 Milwaukee Bucks season was the 40th season of NBA basketball in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. 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.[1] Scott Skiles was then appointed coach soon after to a four year contract.[2]
