Milwaukee Bucks depth chart: Power Forward

Moving the the Milwaukee Bucks’ frontcourt the Milwaukee Bucks depth chart continues to show why it is the deepest roster in the NBA. Starting with MVP candidate Giannis Antetokounmpo, Giannis has been near unstoppable this season, punctuating that point is his performance against the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday night. Giannis poured in 42 points on just 17 shots, of which he made 12. Also, Giannis may have his free throw situation figured out *knocks on wood*, Giannis made 17-of-22 free throws against the Pelicans. Since the calendar changed to December, Giannis has made a serviceable 70 percent of his free throws.

Backing up Giannis at power forward is the now healthy Joe Ingles, who will likely play alongside Giannis often to utilize Ingles’ ability to handle the ball in the pick and roll and essentially run it the same way Giannis and Khris Middleton do. Having a player that is always a threat to shoot and can make tough passes in the pick and roll creates havoc for opponents to defend and now the Bucks have two guys to create that havoc, three if you include Jrue Holiday.

Also at power forward Bobby Portis could be added in, though he spends most of his time at center with Brook Lopez not in the game but the two do play alongside each other a fair amount.

Milwaukee Bucks depth chart: Center

Finally, the big men in the middle, led by Defensive Player of the Year candidate (frontrunner in my opinion) Brook Lopez. Brook Lopez still leads the NBA in blocks per game at 2.7, where the differentiation comes in on why I believe Brook deserves to be the frontrunner for DPOY is contested shots. Brook Lopez has contested the most shots in the NBA this year by a wide enough margin to drive several school busses through and have room to fit Fiserv Forum in the middle.

Brook Lopez has contested 451 two-point shots this season, an impressive number on its own and leading the league. Second place Ivica Zubac has contested 306 in one more game! Brook Lopez has contested 145 more shots in one fewer game! That’s absolutely absurd.

Brook has been no slouch offensively either, Lopez is currently shooting a career high 39.5 percent behind the 3-point line and on Monday put up his first 30 point game since game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Atlanta Hawks during the Bucks championship run.

Behind Brook Lopez is double double machine Bobby Portis. Portis has 17 double doubles this season, thoroughly impressive for a guy coming off the bench. Bobby is certainly a candidate for 6th Man of the Year.

After Brook and Bobby, the Bucks have veteran Serge Ibaka who missed a couple weeks with an illness and two-way player Sandro Mamukelashvili who always brings energy when Mike Budenholzer calls his name.

As the roster stands, the Milwaukee Bucks depth chart stands against any in the entire NBA as the deepest roster in the league.
