Power Forward - Giannis Antetokounmpo

No surprise here. Giannis Antetokounmpo has always said that he wants to remain in Milwaukee as long as the franchise wants to win, and he proved it by inking a new deal this off-season. He will not be going anywhere anytime soon, as he remains laser-focused on winning another championship for the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Greek Freak is having an MVP-caliber year, and part of that is due to the addition of Lillard. Even though the tandem is still building chemistry, they have been feeding off of each other and thriving. They are the perfect running mates for each other due to how they complement the other's game, and there's still room for growth. It could be lethal one they get it all figured out.

Center - Brook Lopez

The Bucks made it clear how they felt about Brook Lopez this past off-season by handing him a huge deal in free agency. It was understandable, given just how hard it would have been to find an adequate piece to fill his role. Thus far, despite a few tough games to start the season, Lopez has been worth it, as he's been an excellent player on both sides of the ball.

Despite being 35 years old, Lopez is averaging over three blocks per game and has a chance to take home the Defensive Player of the Year Award after finishing second last season. He's also averaging over 12 points per contest. His play is crucial for the Bucks, and he almost certainly will not be going anywhere by the trade deadline.

This starting lineup would provide a nice balance of two-way play, with Wiggins coming in to be the wing defender this team so desperately needs. His versatility and ability to take on tough tasks may be just what the Milwaukee Bucks need to reach their full potential this season.
