Milwaukee Is Going For It, Mirotic Proves It

The arms race in the NBA Eastern Conference has taken on a life of its own.  The Sixers hauled in Tobias Harris earlier in the week.  Marc Gasol ends up with the Raptors and the Bucks turn a Thon Maker trade into Nikola Mirotic.  The Celtics can be scary good if they all put it together and that’s the top 4 teams in the east, as solid as they’ve been in years. 

The Bucks however…..they’re for real.  They are going for it. GM Jon Horst added a shooter with 3-point range who can come off the bench and support what already makes this Milwaukee bunch so special.  Mirotic adds shooting, defense, another bigger body and the bench depth they were hoping for when they drafted Thon Maker. 

If Mirotic shares the floor with Giannis, who’s the 3 and who’s the 4?  Then again, does it really matter?

The defensive match-ups with determine that but then again, who really cares, this team has been fortified and now, has a real shot, dare I say it….at the finals.  Which finals, you decide!
