It’s NBA Playoff Time! For some, this is when the professional basketball season really starts. Is Wes Edens’ Milwaukee Bucks ready for the NBA Playoffs?
2017 – 2018 NBA Playoff Teams
Who is going to win the NBA Championship for 2017 – 2018? Some seem to think that only two teams have a chance – Golden State and Cleveland. Of course, they have swept the last couple of years. But, they can’t win all the championships, can they? The NBA Playoffs are particularly exciting because they match old and new powers. The NBA continues to rise in popularity. The Milwaukee Bucks are in the Eastern Conference. The first round series for the Eastern Conference Playoffs are as follows:
#1 Toronto v. #8 Washington
#2 Boston v. #7 Milwaukee
#3 Philadelphia v. #6 Miami
#4 Cleveland v. #5 Indiana
The Milwaukee Bucks fans are excited because they are back in the playoffs. Unfortunately, there is stiff competition. Toronto, Cleveland and Boston are the top teams. Philadelphia has made a run out of nowhere.
Milwaukee Bucks 2017 – 2018 Season
The Milwaukee Bucks had a good 2017-2018 season going 44-38. This allowed them to finish 3rd in the Central Division behind Cleveland and Indiana. Of course, Cleveland is the team to beat.The good news is that the Eastern Conference seems more open than the Western Conference. It seems like there is a dramatic fall off from Cleveland to the next contenders. Cleveland did not even have a very strong season in 2017-2018 by historical standards.Cleveland had a lot of turmoil. They even had a massive trade to reinvigorate their players near mid-season. Some even hint that Lebron James might leave because he does not think the franchise is surrounding him with good talent.
How Does the Future Look for Bucks?
Wes Edens has already got his Milwaukee Bucks into the playoffs. Now, he needs to be consistent and get them there season after season. Fortunately, the Wes Edens’ Bucks don’t have to worry about as many egos as the other teams do.The new stadium should encourage more fans. It takes time for any NBA franchise to rise. The Bucks might be one of the new Eastern Conference powers. Thankfully, co-owner Wes Edens seems to have the Milwaukee Bucks on the right path.
