During the 2018 offseason, the Bucks decided to take a one year risk on a former All-Star yet oft injured center in Brook Lopez, who had reinvented his game by adding a three pointer to his offensive game. 

One year later, the move proved to be a great one, as Brook set NBA records for blocks and three pointers in a season, and the Bucks rewarded him with a four year contract in the 2019 offseason.

The 2019-20 season wasn't very kind to Brook, as it saw his three point shooting drop to below 30%, yet his defense elevated to All-NBA status, as he and Giannis led the Bucks to the best defense in the league.

So far in the NBA bubble, the Disney fanatic has been on fire, averaging over 20 points per game, with 48% shooting from behind the arc in six games.

How vital will Brook be to the Bucks' success in the playoffs?

 

Eric Nehm, our Milwaukee Basketball Insider, joined Bill Wednesday to talk about Brook's success, Giannis' run-in with trouble and more:

What needs to happen for Giannis to be at his full potential?

Why have a few Bucks players like Donte DiVincenzo been struggling in the rejoin?
