Isn’t Middleton, Hill, Korver, Brook and Williams (at least he was for several seasons before joining the Bucks) all top 3pt shooters in the NBA?
3-5 really good 3pt shooters is about the same or better than what most teams in the league have. Bucks have that.
Brook is a liability in high PnR and whenever he has to guard anyone that is mobile.
Hill is a liability in defense
Korver is a liability in defense and not able to run through screens for more than 18 minutes.
Williams plays like someone who has no clue of his role (maybe not his fault) and is horrible in defense close to the post.
Khris is fine.
The playoffs are not the 3 point shot contest. They are not about just shooting jumpers stationary and with no contest. This is ridiculous to insinuate that you would take for example Hill over Dragic this series just because Hill has a better 3 point shot percentage overall.
This is exactly the reason people are delusional when they claim that the Bucks have built a very good shooting team around Giannis. The proof is out there. There is no wall against Giannis if he has around him elite shooters. Teams are STILL choosing to let Bucks players open at the three point line and build a wall around Giannis.
Half of his time (if not more) Giannis is playing with Bledsoe ffs. Where do you think the one guarding Bledsoe places himself when Giannis has the ball?
Giannis needs 4 very good to elite 3 point shooters around him EVERY time if possible (that also play good to very good defense so that they are actually contributing positively while on the floor). You can't have that if your team only has 2-3 at best.
From the Bucks roster, there are only two players I could see playing with Giannis just fine without any concerns: Khris and Wes Matthews (one of the better acquisitions of the Bucks in years).
