Milwaukee Bucks who would have thrived in their prime – Kyle Korver
Widely regarded as one of the best long-distance shooters of all time, Kyle Korver was always in demand throughout his NBA career. Korver, who played under Mike Budenholzer as a member of the Atlanta Hawks previously, reunited with his former head coach in Milwaukee for the 2019-20 season, having signed as a free agent to suit up as a member of the Milwaukee Bucks.
Korver wasn’t too bad for the Bucks, having averaged 6.7 points while shooting 41.8 percent from three on 4.1 attempts per game. Yet, at 38 years old, it was clear that Korver was not the player he once was, which was to be expected. Excluding his rookie season, the veteran played the smallest role of his career with the Bucks and retired once the NBA Playoffs concluded.
In his prime, Korver would have been a lethal offensive weapon for the Bucks. Playing alongside a player in Giannis Antetokounmpo who does most of his damage down low, Korver’s numbers may have been even greater than they already were. The two-guard would have gotten an abundance of open looks from 3-point land courtesy of the Greek Freak nightly, and he would have thrived.
