The latest Milwaukee Bucks Daily is here as we learn more about the relationship between Eric Bledsoe and Khris Middleton and both of their All-Star aspirations for this year.

In today’s edition of Milwaukee Bucks Daily, we examine the competitive camaraderie between Eric Bledsoe and Khris Middleton, preview the Bucks’ highly anticipated duel against the Toronto Raptors ahead of Thursday night, and much more.

With their bet for who throws down the most dunks throughout the regular season being the best example, it’s clear Bledsoe and Middleton have struck up quite a connection since Bledsoe joined the squad in early November of 2017. Now we await whether either or both will be named a reserve to this year’s All-Star Game Thursday night, which will be announced before the Bucks’ meeting with the Raptors.
