To take that next step forward this year this team can’t be a one man show.
The role players on this team need to step up and have a lot of success. If the role players don’t step up this will be another disappointing finish to what could be a great year.
Milwaukee Bucks Strengths:
For the Bucks the strengths of this team start with their superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Greek Freak as he is known has burst onto the NBA scene a couple of years ago, and he has made cheering for the Bucks popular again.
He has all kinds of length and is one of the most athletic players in the NBA. Last year the Greek Freak had 22.9 points, 8.8 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 1.9 blocks and 1.6 steals per game.
The best part of his game is the best is still to come. He has been good so far, but he keeps taking huge steps forward this year, so that should happen again this year.
The Bucks also have a lot of young up and coming talent that could turn into stars. Jabari Parker is working back from his second ACL tear in his young career.
Although he won’t be ready for the beginning of the season, once he does come back he should be a key piece for the playoff run.
The guy the Bucks are most looking forward to getting back is Khris Middleton who battled some injuries last year but looks to be fully healthy coming into this year.
Last year he only played 29 games but in those games he had 14.7 points, 4.2 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game. If the Bucks are going to take that next step forward it’s going to be because of Middleton.
Another big strength for this team is chemistry. This team is basically the same team that they used last year besides losing a couple of role players.
They seem to play well together on the court, and their won’t be any early season growing pains of the players trying to figure out what the others like to do.
Milwaukee Bucks Weaknesses:
This Milwaukee Bucks team has a few weaknesses that could really hurt their chances at taking their next step forward.
The front court depth for this team is very weak, especially until Jabari Parker is able to come back later in the season.
Against bigger teams they are going to struggle at times, and they are going to have to try and find a way to really rebound.
This team is also really young, and that includes their coach Jason Kidd. They don’t really have a veteran voice in the locker room who can help get the team back together if there are some struggles by this team.
It will be interesting to how this team handles adversity if they run into any of it this year, which they will because every NBA team does no matter how good you are.
Milwaukee Bucks Betting Prediction: 46-36
Vegas has set the over/under at 47.5 for this team which shouldn’t come as much of a surprise because they are in the much weaker Eastern Conference.
I think this team is going to have a lot of success this season. I think they will go small a lot and that will lead to a lot of mismatches against other teams.
Even with a good season I don’t think they will cover the over. I think once the playoffs come around I think they will struggle again.
It will be an early exit once again this year for the Bucks from the playoffs.
