Leading the eastern conference in wins, bagging the number 1 seed to the playoffs are the Milwaukee Bucks. The Bucks were on a roll this past season and in these playoffs as well but as their star player Giannis Antetokounmpo got injured, all hopes had then been lost. The Bucks had no problem sweeping the Orlando Magic in the first round but injuries to their MVP led them to lose the series to the Miami Heat in the second round of the playoffs.

The Milwaukee Bucks have one of the more all-around starting line-ups in the NBA. Starting at shooting guard is their young rookie Donte DiVincenzo who will surely flourish under the wing of sharpshooter Kyle Korver, who is a veteran shooter in the NBA.

Next we have their bigman, Brook Lopez. Funny thing, both the Lopez brothers play for the Bucks and are exceptionally well at what they do. Though both of them can protect the rim and rebound, Brook has the ability to stretch the floor and shoot 3’s which in turn help other players create space.

The Bucks are also the team that had drafted Kareem Abdul Jabbar number 1 overall in the 1969 draft. Bucks front office made a few changes and got Oscar Robertson from the Sacramento Kings which was a smart move as this duo got Milwaukee their only NBA championship so far in 1971.

The Bucks may have been knocked out of these playoffs but will definitely make an even stronger run towards the title from the very next season.
