After one of the most important offseasons in franchise history, the Milwaukee Bucks still have a few question marks as the 2019-20 NBA season approaches.

No NBA team is perfect. Every team has a flaw or two, others even more. For the Milwaukee Bucks, the former is a more accurate assessment. Fresh off the team’s first 60-win season in nearly 40 years, Mike Budenholzer’s squad was two wins away from making the NBA Finals.

Giannis Antetokounmpo has asserted himself as one of the league’s best players. Winning the NBA’s Most Valuable Player award in 2018-19 behind a stat line of 27.7 points, 12.5 rebounds and 5.9 assists per game on a remarkable 57.8 percent shooting from the field, he was excellent. The trio of Khris Middleton, Eric Bledsoe and Brook Lopez all performed at a high level in support of Antetokounmpo.

Despite the team’s immense success last season, a question arises: What’s the ceiling for the Milwaukee Bucks? Because of the imminent decline of the Toronto Raptors after Kawhi Leonard’s departure, along with some uncertainty surrounding the Boston Celtics, the Eastern Conference seems to be up for grabs.

The preseason favorites are none other than the Bucks, but that guarantees very little with the other 29 teams drawing a target on their backs. What are some other questions that need to be answered by next June?
