The Milwaukee Bucks stood noticeably silent on the trade market this season. With few rumors regarding any potential deals, they have successfully lasted the season with their roster intact.
For most, the trade deadline is a chance for teams to improve their roster and fill needs ahead of the postseason. For the Bucks, they went all year long without making a major move. For Giannis, he expressed his pleasure with that decision in a chat with Yahoo! Sports.
“But I think we’re the best team in the NBA; we have the best record in the NBA.
“For me, I think there should not be any change. Thank God there wasn’t. I think the guys we have, the chemistry we have on the team is amazing right now.
“The guys we have are playing great. These are the guys I’ve been going to war with all season and I’m happy we have the same team.”
The Bucks have more than enough fire-power to win the East. They currently hold the best record in the NBA, led by Giannis and Middleton.
After getting knocked in last year’s Eastern Conference Finals, they came back with largely the same crew — ready to finally meet their potential. This season, as they torch the NBA, they seem to be ready to take the next step.
