After arriving to Milwaukee in a shocking deadline trade, Michael Carter-Williams had to adjust to his new home very quickly.

To go from a team where winning was not the highest of priorities to a team where winning this season was unexpected, it had to have been a culture shock to Carter-Williams.  To add to that, he was replacing the team’s de facto leader in Brandon Knight.

It was unfair from the beginning to compare Carter-Williams to Knight.

While Carter-Williams was the reigning rookie of the year, he’s been viewed as more of a raw player to where Knight was more fully formed and their styles of play respectively couldn’t have been more far apart.

With all that said, Carter-Williams had some big shoes to fill while trying to lead the unlikeliest of teams to the playoffs in a short amount of time.

It was expected that there would be a period of adjustment and while there were some bumps in the road along the way, we saw glimpses of what kind of player Carter-Williams could become.
