After firing Jason Kidd mid-season and letting Joe Prunty take over as the interim head coach, the Milwaukee Bucks have settled on Mike Budenholzer to take the position. What could this mean for the Bucks in comparison to the rest of the East? Thats just one of the many questions to be answered.
The Milwaukee Bucks still have Giannis Antetokounmpo, the dragon-of-a-man from Greece. However, before Mike Budenholzer, they have not had a coach who was good enough to coach him. Even though he is a top ten NBA player, the team still needs a good coach to push them over the top. The good thing for the Bucks is that there top ten player isn’t even in his prime yet. With Mike Budenholzer, a noted good NBA coach, they will have the potential to really reach Giannis’ full potential. If they have built a good system and roster around him when he does reach his full potential (which is basically the basketball version of Thor from Infinity War), then could they have a championship caliber team?
This is another interesting question, because as flawed as their roster is, they have talent. Even outside of Giannis, Jabari Parker, Malcolm Brogdon, and Khris Middleton are all pretty good players. They have rookie DJ Wilson, and either 21 or 38 year old Thon Maker (for those who don’t get this joke, when Thon Maker was drafted there were questions about his age, questions like “is he actually really old?”). However they do have some problems, such as Matthew Dellavedova’s ridiculous $9 million a year. Also, other than Giannis and Jabari, the rest of their roster is in the “win-now” years. So, does Mike Budenholzer decide to stick with this roster, or perhaps get a little younger, so that when Giannis hits his prime, the rest of the roster will too?

The Boston Celtics will probably win the East the next two years, and will definitely be in contention further. If they don’t win the East next year, it will be because Philadelphia does. These two teams are built to be really good in the near future. So, where does Milwaukee fit in this picture? Mike Budenholzer will probably be the second best coach in the East next year. (Brad Stevens will still be first, as he is a literal genius.) The Bucks will also, probably, have the best player in every playoff series they play for the next ten years. That is important. Giannis is a freak, hence the nickname, and is only getting better. Does a good coach, mixed with a potentially all-time great player, make them a contender? Or are the Celtics and Sixers already too well established, with room to grow, for the Bucks to keep up?
I am a sports nerd, who also loves movies, television, and podcasts. I apologize for the bad jokes, which there will be many of.
