2 for 2. The Milwaukee Bucks sweep their Award Nominations at the 1st Annual NBA Award Ceremony
If I’m not a Bucks fan, I’m absolutely terrified by the team brewing in the Midwest. If I am a Bucks fan, I’m more excited then a 13 year old discovering porn for the first time. It’s about to be wild in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA. Their young core 6 of Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jabari Parker, Khris Middleton, Malcolm Brogdon, Thon Maker, and Tony Snell are 22, 22, 25, 24, 20, and 25. Only two of them are old enough to rent a car, but all of them can stay on their parents’ health care if they wanted to. That’s some God damn youthful talent right there. The scarier part is they already have playoff game winning experience and a handful of veterans to keep teaching them the ropes of the League. As long as they stay together, the Bucks will be in the NBA Finals within the next few years. Maybe even 2018 if LeBron bolts to Cali. But as for now, the Bucks added their 4th and 5th accolades of the off-season during last night’s NBA Awards right on the heels of Giannis’ All-NBA and All-Defense 2nd Teams and Malcolm Brogdon’s All-Rookie 1st Team. If you think about it, realistically, we really went 5 for 5 in awards that were legitimately winnable by Bucks players.
NBA Rookie of the Year: Malcolm Brogdon
I told you. The Process and the 76ers have nothing on Brogdon.
NBA Most Improved Player: Giannis Antetokounmpo
When your best player goes from 16.9 ppg, 7.7 rpg, 4.3 apg, 1.4 bpg, and 1.2 spg to 22.9 ppg, 8.8 rpg, 5.4 apg, 1.9 bpg, and 1.6 spg in one season, while being All-NBA 2nd Team, All-Defense 2nd Team, an All-Star Starter, and the Most Improved player in his AGE 22 season…that’s messed up.
The NBA world better keep their eyes on the happenings in Milwaukee because, mark my words, they will be on top of the NBA landscape sooner than later.
