If Khris Middleton didn’t get hurt in Milwaukee’s first-round series with Chicago, the Bucks probably would have repeated as Eastern Conference champions. Milwaukee lost to Boston in seven games during the second round, and even the proudest Celtics fans will tell you the absence of Middelton was the main reason why the Celtics won the series. Giannis Antetokounmpo did what he could to carry the Bucks, as he had 34 points and 18 rebounds in a Game 4 loss and posted 44 points and 20 rebounds in a Game 6 loss. That’s why the Bucks made no big changes in the offseason, deciding to run it back with almost their entire team from last year.

Giannis Antetokounmpo is the most overpowering player in the NBA. As long as he is with the Bucks, they are a serious title contender, as no one can stop the Greek Freak when he is at the top of his game. Antetokounmpo averaged 29.9 PPG, 11.6 RPG, and 5.8 APG last season, and he made over 61% of his field goals from inside the perimeter. His only weakness is his three-point shooting, and if he can ever develop consistency from beyond the arc, look out.

Milwaukee built a solid cast around Antetokounmpo as both Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday are very good players that serve to make Antetokounmpo better too. Middleton averaged 20.1 PPG, 5.4 RPG, and 5.4 APG last season, and Holiday averaged 18.3 PPG and 6.8 APG while making over 50% of his field goals and 40% of his threes.

Bobby Portis, Brook Lopez, and Serge Ibaka are all big men that allow Antetokounmpo to leave the paint on defense, and they can make a little happen on the offensive end too. Pat Connaughton is a solid player coming off the bench alongside Joe Ingles and Wesley Matthews, making the Bucks a very well-rounded team.

The Milwaukee Bucks have had a lot of success since joining the NBA, even if they’ve only won two NBA championships. They have made the playoffs 34 times, and they were immediate contenders after they went 27-55 in their expansion season in 1968-69. Milwaukee was able to draft Kareem Abdul-Jabbar with the No. 1 overall pick in the 1969 NBA Draft, and that made the Bucks a franchise to be reckoned with from that point forward. They proceeded to win at least 55 games in each of the next five seasons, and they won the 1971 NBA Finals after going 66-16 during the regular season. Oscar Robertson joined Abdul-Jabbar for that season, and the Bucks only lost two playoff games on their way to the title. They made it to the 1974 NBA Finals too, where they lost to the Boston Celtics in seven games.

Unfortunately, the Bucks were unable to keep Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as he never felt at home in Milwaukee. That led to Abdul-Jabbar being traded to the Los Angeles Lakers for a bevy of players and draft picks in the summer of 1975. The Bucks immediately dropped off, and although they had a successful run in the 1980s, they were never able to make it past the Eastern Conference Finals.

Milwaukee now has another destiny changing superstar in Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Greek Freak is the most talented player in the NBA, and he won the NBA Finals MVP en route to the Bucks winning the 2021 NBA Finals. Antetokounmpo has already signed a max extension with the franchise until the end of the 2025-26 season, so the Bucks don’t have to worry about losing another superstar in their prime as they did with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
