Do you know why the Bucks lost against the Raptors in the ECF? It wasn't because of Giannis...it was because Middleton and especially Bledsoe played like scrubs. Giannis could play like an MVP but if Middleton and Bledsoe choke again they aren't going to the finals.
For the Bucks to make it to the finals Middleton has to play like an allstar, and Bledsoe has to not choke like he always does when the pressure is on.
So one bad series means we can rule him out from ever contributing in the playoffs again? This would be like the critics saying the Raptors wouldn't go anywhere last postseason despite having Kawhi, because Lowry played poorly in some playoff series in the past. The fact that Giannis wasn't the reason why they lost is the exact reason why I'm not worried about them. Their best player can be relied upon to not choke under pressure.
It's not one bad series, middleton played like trash against TOR in 2017 as well. What terrible understanding.
Lmao @ "what a terrible understanding". Yeah I'm terribly understanding how two bad postseason performances in completely different situations where the coach and roster was different on both teams indicates that a player will never play well in another postseason matchup again.
