2. Expert Tactician
Perhaps, Budenholzer’s most well-known asset is his ability to make in-game adjustments on the fly. He’s proven during his time in Atlanta that he can not only create a lethal gameplan, but adjust that gameplan if it’s not working.
This will be a welcome sight for Bucks’ fans who have struggled to see Jason Kidd manage even the most basic of rotations and strategies. Remember, Kidd has told his players to miss free throws when they are up three in the finals seconds of a game before.
The players will also welcome this, as they hope to gain predictability to the rotations. There were too many instances last season where Malcolm Brogdon (on one occasion) and Tony Snell were left out of the rotation without any answers. Budenholzer should be able to coach circles around the Bucks’ previous coaches.
