The Milwaukee Bucks’ playoff run ended in disappointment, but they’d be mindful to follow some of the biggest lessons learned from this NBA postseason.
The 2019-20 NBA season has finally come to a close, but it’s been that way for the Milwaukee Bucks for over a month now.
The highly disappointing end to the Bucks’ once magical season has certainly cast plenty of questions about how they move forward and reload for another run next year. All while they saw the team that vanquished them, the Miami Heat, reach the NBA Finals and a star-led Los Angeles Lakers squad capture their 17th NBA championship.
For a team that showed very few bumps across a nearly immaculate run during the regular season, the Bucks’ time in the bubble over the seeding games and this postseason was anything but that.
Granted, this was far from a normal season by any definition. The coronavirus pandemic disrupted the rhythm of this NBA season for every team and threw quite a wrench in the trajectory the Bucks had been hurdling towards.
Now what remains is the Bucks having to tackle major foundational questions about their roster and even their overall identity. And there’s certainly something to be learned from the team who surpassed and went further into the playoffs that Milwaukee did this year.
So without further ado, let’s dive into some of the biggest takeaways from this year’s NBA Playoffs and how the Bucks can follow the template to reload and make good on their aspirations of winning an NBA title for the 2020-21 season.
