Small Forward: Khris Middleton
No matter what Khris Middleton does, he continues to remain one of the most underrated players in the entire NBA. Even after he lit up the Boston Celtics in the first round of the playoffs, all the NBA wanted to talk about was Jalen Brown and Jayson Tatum.
Middleton recovered from a hamstring injury that cost him most of the 2016-17 season and averaged a career-high 20.1 points and 5.2 rebounds per game. That even came with him struggling from the three-point line and only knocked down 35.9 percent of his outside shots. That’s far below his career average of 39.1 percent.
Middleton should continue to thrive as the second option on this Bucks’ team and is a good second fiddle to Giannis Antetokounmpo. Whether he’s good enough to be second fiddle on a team that has Eastern Conference Finals’ aspirations is another discussion for this article.
