Team Profile:

Now that Milwaukee has Damian Lillard, they start the season with the NBA’s No. 2 duo – I still love the Suns’ guys most -, and the No. 1 player in the league in Giannis Antetokounmpo. Along with Khris Middleton, Milwaukee’s star trio also rivals Phoenix’s. The Bucks are a lot more than their stars though, as they have one of the league’s elite centers in Brook Lopez and some of the league’s elite role players in Malik Beasley, Bobby Portis and Jae Crowder. The Bucks were to me the No. 1 team in the East when they lacked Lillard, but with him, there is no argument.

Player Profile:

Andre Jackson Jr. was one of my 20 or so favorite prospects in the 2023 NBA Draft, and Milwaukee got the Connecticut product 37th. The versatile guard/forward isn’t much of a scorer, but he has excellent playmaking ability and can become a swiss army-type of role player.

Biggest Strength: Superstar Duo

Biggest Weakness: Mediocre Bench

Record: 62-20, First in Eastern Conference
