What's up people! My name is Jaipal and I've decided to do an individual segment on every team, starting with the ones in the NBA Playoffs. For this one, I've decided to inform you on the Milwaukee Bucks.
First and foremost, the starting lineup for the Milwaukee Bucks: Monta Ellis, Brandon Jennings, Ersan Ilyasova, Larry Sanders, and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute (yes, this is one dude with an insanely long name). Let's start off with the Bucks' leading scorer, Monta Ellis. Acquired through a trade with the Golden State Warriors (the Bucks traded Andrew Bogut), this dude has the ability to make some space and shoot. His ability to score with consistency is one of his many talents. Now for the point guard, Brandon Jennings. For those of you who saw the Heat game, you know this dude can make threes from anywhere in any situation. He converted an and-one into a four-point play by drawing a foul on Shane Battier. He scored a three ball over Battier while flying out of bounds. This dude is more of a scorer than a facilitator, which I believe can be beneficial, but he should also try setting up his teammates. Larry Sanders isn't a scorer, he's an older player who delivers a more of a defensive presence. He does get some shots in, however. Now Ersan Ilyasova is a big Russian player who has a consistent jumper and he's a monster in the paint. They don't need another power forward. Mbah a Moute is a rebounding/putbacking (is putbacking a word?) small forward. Small? Yeah right. This dude leads his team in offensive board and raising the assist stats of his teammates by scoring off the dime in the paint. As for the bench, the most notable players would be Ekpe Udoh, JJ Redick, and Mike Dunleavy. Mike and JJ are the best bench shooters, making their teams money with amazing three-point shots. Ekpe Udoh is a great substitute for either Sanders or Moute. He's a rebounder, not a scorer.
If the Bucks wish to be play better, I believe they need a dude with size who can score without a problem in the paint. They already have Ersan Ilyasova who can knock down shots. I suggest that they select Gorgui Dieng from Louisville University. This isn't because of his team winning the 2013 NCAA Championship, but if you've seen the dude play. He offers a tremendous offensive and defensive presence, but the coach should be cautious when he starts to get in foul trouble. That is his only issue.
