The NBA season is off to a fast start. Our hometown team the Milwaukee Bucks are coming into the season with all eyes on them. The Bucks just received a new arena, it is called the Fiserv Forum. This is a state of the art arena that could be considered one of the best arenas in the entire NBA. The Bucks are led this year by star forwards Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton. The Bucks also added Brook Lopez, Donte DiVincenzo, and Ersan Ilyasova to better improve the team this season. The Bucks have a 10-4 record so far this season. They are currently ranked second in the Eastern conference, only behind the Toronto Raptors. The Celtics are ranked third in the Eastern conference. The Bucks lost to the Celtics last year in the playoffs. The Bucks are going to have be very consistent if they want to overtake a team like the Celtics or the Raptors.
Expectations are high this season for the Bucks. They have a very hard conference this year, so winning is going to be very difficult with such a great conference this season, but with their skill set it is possible. This is dependent on if Giannis has an MVP level season, which is very possible.
