7. Milwaukee Bucks

It’s actually quite odd how much the Milwaukee Bucks have not been talked about this season. And even though an argument could be made that’s because they haven’t been as dominant as they were last season, you can also argue that they haven’t been healthy much, if at all, this season.

And if this team is going to be healthy during the playoffs, the Bucks should be a favorite to come out of the Eastern Conference once again – no matter how good the Chicago Bulls or Miami Heat may look this season.

Giannis Antetokounmpo has once again improved as a player – which is a scary sight for the rest of the league – and this team is finally getting healthy. At perhaps just the right time.
