The Milwaukee Bucks haven’t made it past the first round of the playoffs since 2001. That might continue with the eggs laid by these three players.
The Milwaukee Bucks have failed to live up to expectations for the 2017-18 season and have many fans on edge entering the playoffs. Maybe “on edge” isn’t the best way to describe it. It’s more like fans are expecting disappointment, like it’s inevitable.
It’s hard NOT to think that way given the history of Milwaukee over the past 17 years or so. In that time frame, the Bucks have only made the playoffs seven times, have never won a series and hold a record of 11-28.
The constant losing has molded fans into thinking the Bucks are going to do nothing but lose.
Fortunately, Giannis Antetokounmpo, a once in a generation player, looks prime to bust the Bucks out of that slump no matter how bad the decision-makers are at the top of the organization.
In order to do that, he must help carry these three players who will lay an egg in the playoffs.
