How the Bucks can get over the hump

With the NBA Finals currently going on, it’s hard to imagine what could’ve been for the Milwaukee Bucks. After losing to the Toronto Raptors in the 2019 playoffs, it seemed like the Bucks were poised to make a championship run in 2020. Giannis and the Bucks looked unstoppable as they had the best record in the league for the second straight year and then COVID-19 happened. In March, the NBA postponed the season and many thought the season wouldn’t finish. The NBA was able to continue the season down in Disney after a four month break and the Milwaukee Bucks didn’t look the same. After cruising past the Orlando Magic in the first round, the Bucks ran into a buzzsaw in the Miami Heat and lost the series 4-1. With Giannis’ free agency coming up next summer, the Bucks have to make a roster change if they want to win a championship and convince Giannis to stay. That change could start by replacing point guard Eric Bledsoe with veteran Chris Paul. Chris Paul is 35 and on an Oklahoma City team that is ready to kickstart a rebuild as they have 15 first-round picks over the next seven years. Paul is also due more than 40 million dollars next season and it would make sense for the Thunder to shed his contract off their payroll. Paul is a future hall of famer and is one of the best floor generals in the NBA who can hit shots from outside. He and Giannis would compliment each other well and give Giannis more confidence in the team. If Milwaukee can pull this off and make next years’ NBA Finals, it’ll help the teams’ chances of retaining their generational superstar next summer.
