The Milwaukee Bucks are a team to be reckoned with in the NBA

One of the most overlooked teams in the NBA right now have one of the best records in the NBA. The Milwaukee Bucks currently a top three seed in the East have been winning major games that no one is recognizing.

Behind new head coach Mike Budenholzer, the Bucks have been able to pull off big wins over the defending champs Golden State Warriors, Toronto Raptors and Houston Rockets. Another huge improvement to the Bucks is their scoring. Last season the Bucks averaged around 106 points per game and now they have jumped up to about 117 points per game. With players like Giannis Antetokounmpo who is having an MVP caliber season. Also with the addition of center Brook Lopez who has been a tremendous stretch big, developing guard Malcolm Brogdon, and star athlete Khris Middleton the Bucks are no joke.

Coach  Budenholzer previously coached the Atlanta Hawks for multiple years with a few playoff appearances. Also he was the assistant coach for the San Antonio Spurs during the Tim Duncan,Tony Parker, and Manu Ginobili era.

Also with a division with young unready talent with the Cleveland Cavaliers , Chicago Bulls and an inconsistent team in the Detroit Pistons, the only team the Bucks have to worry about in their division is the Pacers. As for the whole eastern conference, the Bucks only have to focus on teams like the Toronto Raptors, Philadelphia 76ers, and Boston Celtics.

Antetokounmpo is arguably the MVP of the NBA and he is only 23 years old. Although he is not a great shooter, he has an insane ability to get to the rim.  He and Lebron James are probably the top two players in the NBA that have the ability to get to the rim so easily. What company to be in.

With a clear MVP candidate in Antetokounmpo and a great supporting cast of talent, the Milwaukee Bucks have a real chance of winning the Eastern Conference and possibly the O’Brien Trophy.
