The Milwaukee Bucks shocked the whole world last season when they defied all the odds and won the NBA Championship. Giannis Antetokounmpo was instrumental in their quest and came up with monstrous performances in every game. Add to his brilliance, Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday made them even better and cohesive and they were performing better as a team. One cannot forget players like Bobby Portis and Brook Lopez who came up with the crucial points whenever their team required.

Former NBA player and current analyst Jay Williams was on ESPN’s First Take when he was asked which team is better equipped to build a dynasty. Williams said it was the Milwaukee Bucks without batting an eyelid. He said, “I still like Milwaukee. Look, Khris Middleton was a 50-40-90 guy a couple of times in his career. What he brings to the table I think is different. I think that’s a different series if Middleton is on the court. Obviously, health is factored in too.

He continued, “Boston is in that conversation as well. I think Boston will be knocking on the door but I just don’t gloss over the Milwaukee Bucks and a guy right now in Giannis, who is the best player in the world in my opinion and if you surround him with the right pieces if they are healthy, I love their system, I love their style in which they play and I still think in the next couple of years, they have a huge window to win championships.”

What about the Boston Celtics?

The Boston Celtics are currently in the driving seat to become the NBA champions and Stephen A. Smith thinks that if they win the title this year, then they will become a dynasty given that they have such a young core of players. Smith said, “I can say the same thing about Boston. We said they were coming. If they win the championship, they have arrived. And there is something to be said about walking through that minefield, going through that danger zone and coming out on top. It makes you different because I have been there now. I know what to take. I know what it takes.

And to see Jaylen Brown at 25 and to see a Jayson Tatum at 24 and to see how unfazed they are. By the moment, if they end up beating the Golden State Warriors and winning this championship, understand that the Brooklyn Nets and the Milwaukee Bucks will now next year be going against a different animal.”
