Can The Bucks Win It All?


Damian Albrecht, Staff Writer


This year the Bucks have been on a tear ever since the beginning of the season. Their current record is 46-8, the only team that has less than 10 losses this season. Giannis has been nothing less than the MVP this season, competing with Lebron, Anthony Davis and Luka Doncic. Giannis is averaging 30 points, 13.5 rebounds, 5.8 assists and 1 per game. Giannis also won the MVP last year with 27 points a game, 2 blocks per game, and 12 rebounds. 

The key to the Bucks’ success this year is having the players ready and healthy when it comes to playoff time and in big games that are a must-win. I think the Bucks will finish with a 70-11 season. Khris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe will have to be a big part of the success of trying to win a championship. It takes more than one player to win a championship. They also have a coach of the year candidate in Mike Budenhozier. I feel like he has been a big part of our success because of the way he uses the players and his experience as a player. 

The Bucks made one signing this trade deadline signing Marvin Williams and releasing  Dragon Bender from the Herd to make room to sign him. He signed a 1-year, $956,346 contract. Khris Middleton is averaging 20 ppg, 6 rebounds, and 4 assists this year so far. Eric Bledsoe is averaging 16 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists this year. I feel like Middleton and Bledsoe will have a stronger impact on the court when it comes to playoffs because of the competition in the East. Teams they have a chance at playing before reaching the Finals are Raptors with no Kawhi, Celtics with Kemba, Heat with Jimmy Butler, 76ers with Embiid, Pacers with Olidipo, Nets with Kyrie and the Magic with Aaron Gordon. 

The hardest competition I feel like the Bucks will have will be getting past the 2nd round. The past few years, they have been knocked out in the first round by the Celtics. I feel like the 76ers will be the Bucks hardest competition. They have Embiid, Simmons, Al Horford, Tobias Harris, and Josh Richardson.
