But if Antetokounmpo demands a trade to the Warriors, he will do so for reasons bigger than playing with his buddy. Golden State’s up-tempo, movement-heavy style plays to his strengths. With Curry and others to space the floor, Antetokounmpo would have far more open looks than he’s had in Milwaukee. Steve Kerr, an offensive savant, […]
“At the end of the day, we’ve got to learn from everything that goes on in your life and in your career and hopefully we can learn from this and get better as a team and come back and hopefully we can build a culture in Milwaukee for many years that we can come out […]
With the Milwaukee Bucks facing elimination against the Miami Heat in Game 5 of their second-round series, the team will have to keep its playoff hopes alive without its biggest star. Giannis Antetokounmpo has reportedly been ruled out for tonight’s game after suffering an injury in Game 4.
Key trades backfired, too. The Bucks found a team will to deal a coveted future Lakers first-rounder (which became Mikal Bridges) for Brandon Knight and instead opted for Michael Carter-Williams in a three-way trade. Milwaukee dealt a first-rounder (which became OG Anunoby) and a second-rounder (which became Norman Powell) for Greivis Vasquez.

Owner Steve Ballmer is wealthier than any other NBA owner by far (and any NFL owner, for that matter), […]
The Greek Freak literally bullied his way to the hoop against the Magic, elevated and smashed one home like it wasn’t a big deal at all. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
The Bucks can win this game and maybe extend the series long enough to get Antetokounmpo back (and make adjustments to get him flowing again). But each step will be difficult, starting with winning tonight without their best player.
Expect the Bucks to be aggressive in reshaping the roster, GM Jon Horst has shown to be a risk-taker. Chris Paul‘s name has come up in rumors. Milwaukee is not going to trade Antetokounmpo unless he demands it — small market teams do not land MVPs/Defensive Players of the Year very often, whatever they got […]
Antetokounmpo played Game 4. If he feels the same way entering Game 5, he’ll play that, too. Antetokounmpo aggravated his injury and left Game 4. That showed he shouldn’t have been playing in the first place while feeling like this – especially with the Milwaukee Bucks down 3-0 or even 3-1 now. It seems Antetokounmpo […]
