Injuries are the worst aspect of professional sports. Just ask the Milwaukee Bucks. They won the NBA championship in 2020-21. With that in mind, you may want to limit the sympathy you extend them.
At the same time, they may have been able to defend their title in 2021-22 – if not for injuries.
Khris Middleton went down in the postseason, and the Bucks’ odds collapsed with him. Middleton plays a vital role on this squad as the Robin to Giannis Antetkounmpo’s Batman. Without him, the Bucks didn’t have a reliable enough fall-back option.
This organization surely has the blueprint to continue contending in 2022-23. With that said, upgrading the roster couldn’t hurt.
