Earlier this offseason, I wrote an article evaluating the elite teams in the Eastern Conference. Some of the teams I included were obvious to most people; the newly formed super-team the Miami Heat, the Eastern Conference defending champions the Boston Celtics, the new look Chicago Bulls and the perennial playoff bound Orlando Magic and Atlanta Hawks. However, the sixth team I included has not been given the respect that they should have earned last season.
The CBS sports website is currently conducting a poll asking if the Bucks will make the playoffs. Out of 564 votes, 30% of voters answered no to the question.
It is clear that NBA fans do not actually know the Bucks roster and their potential for next season. In a matter of time, Milwaukee will prove they are contenders and not pretenders, but until then, let's dig deep into their depth chart and see what all the hype is with this "Fear the Dear" motto.
