If things go well...
It's a strange situation in Milwaukee where they cleaned house and shipped out, almost, their entire roster and brought in a bunch of cast-offs and misfits from other teams. Don't get me wrong, the guys they brought in are NBA-worthy talent but they may not be an upgrade over the crew that was shipped out. If things go well the Bucks will gel together, bring in one more big player in a trade, and grab one of the lower seeds for the playoffs.
If things go poorly...
We really don't think that the Bucks improved at all with their roster shake-up. If they are unable to trade a couple of their expiring contracts for 2nd level star player they will be out of the playoffs by 5-10 games. As Bill and Jalen talk about at length in the video, if things go bad early the attendance will drop and this franchise could be on the move to the West Coast. Better get good early. Tanking for a high draft pick in one of the best drafts in the last 10 years might send this team packing.
