Bucks get Jrue. Huge upgrade for them. Really puts them in contention.

Harden trying to force his way to the nets.

All these good duos/ trios and kawhi LeGmd himself Paul George and Barbara bev.

I like that the Bucks are actually going for it, but damn that seems like a lot of picks for Jrue.

Looking more like the Rockets are really gonna blow it all up. I wonder who can swoop in for Tucker, I know I'd like him in Utah.

Jrue/Middleton/Giannis is a very nice big 3 and they didn't give up much depth. Think Bud is still a huge question mark though.

I will lose it if the Bucks could somehow could pull off the Bogdan S&T. Jrue/Bogdan/Khris/Giannis is filthy

Pretty odd that the bucks didn't even call about paul if they gave up that much for jrue but...

Jrue / Bogdan / Middleton / Giannis / Lopez is damn good. Bogdan is gonna be unreal on that team.

Really like the fit of the new look Bucks. Will need some depth pieces, but they're looking solid.

Bucks finally got rid off Bledsoe, that's a huge plus for them! If Jrue is still able to make decent impact on defense, then they would be scary good. The only concern is that he's not elite shooter, but then they also got Bogdan so their shooting should be fine.

If Lopez won't regress and Giannis continues to develop, they look scary.

I wonder what the Raps would do now with Giannis dream being bleak and FVV looking for a big pay check. Lowry might be on the market

Sheesh, I like that starting lineup for the Bucks.

Initial thought was that was a huge overpay for Jrue, but if Giannis signs the supermax then it was totally worth it.

Jrue
Brogdan
Middleton
Giannis
Brook Lopez

This is a disgusting lineup.

Not really sure if I'm as high on Bogdan as some are. He's a negative defender and only average 3pt shooter. Hard for me to tell if DiVincenzo is just a system guy or had legitimate defensive talent, but he's a lot younger than Bogdan and still has some potential, other two guys are meaningless lol. Guess if you're going all-in you've got to go all-in though.

If this doesn't work out this season the Bucks are gonna be in a very tough spot.

These are lateral moves for the Bucks. Their main issue is the ball can't be in Giannis's hands on offense, these trades do nothing to change that. Until that changes the Bucks are not contenders.

The Holiday trade is nuts to me. Would never give up that much for a non allstar in his 12th season.

I bet he'll be an All-Star again now that he's in the East, and the Bucks will almost certainly have the best RS record in the league.

The way I look at it, they're giving all that up for Jrue + 5 additional seasons of Giannis. If they didn't make that trade, Giannis is leaving 90% of the time. This definitely improves their chances of keeping him.

They're really gonna need to work hard to fill out the rest of the roster though.

This KD/Harden/Kyrie combo is going to be so fascinating. How do people see them meshing? Steve Nash is going to have his hands full, but that coaching staff should produce basically an unguardable offense, right?
