For the second year in a row, the Bucks reached All Star weekend with the best record in the NBA, this season flirting with winning 70 games for only the third time in NBA history. The team famously fizzled out last season in the Eastern Conference Finals after starting the series up 2-0 on the Raptors. Can the Bucks avoid a similar fate and reach (or win) the NBA Finals, or is the better bet on the rest of the NBA?


Ric Bucher, our Radio.com Sports NBA Insider, joined Bill on Wednesday to answer, to talk about Giannis disappearing in the 4th quarter of the All Star game, and more:

- What are his thoughts on how Giannis’ game has improved from last season?

-  Is there a team that poses a big threat to the Bucks in the East?

- Does he give the Bucks a good shot at winning the NBA Finals?

- Does the NBA want the Bucks and Giannis Antetokounmpo to win the Finals?

- Does he see Giannis actually leaving the Bucks?
