23. Milwaukee Bucks

So here we are. It’s much worse than we would have expected after the first full month of the NBA season, but that hopefully means that it will all be onwards and upwards from here for the Milwaukee Bucks. A tough schedule is going to make that a real challenge, but there’s no question that the Bucks have the talent to turn things around.

Giannis Antetokounmpo may not be quite as dominant as he was early on, but he’s still having a very impressive season pacing the team in scoring. Khris Middleton has had the hot hand in recent weeks, and there’ll be a real hope that that can continue, while Jabari Parker and Greg Monroe might have a thing or two to offer as well. Onwards and upwards, eh?
