Life, as a Bucks fan, is good these days.
Look, just close your eyes and imagine ten years ago, someone told you that the Milwaukee Bucks would be home to the league’s best player for a decade, have another top 75 players of all time, and their third option would be an all-star with the best odds to win a championship…
Now, open your eyes and wake up…we are all living that dream.
Giannis is a Buck for years to come, and the team the league once laughed at for decades is now a championship-caliber contender every single season.
One of the few reasons why? Their general manager, who, in my opinion, should be in the conversation as the league’s best. Yes, THE best.
Bucks General Manager Jon Horst undeniably stands as the league’s premier executive. His exceptional ability to retain the two-time MVP, Giannis Antetokounmpo, not just once but twice, demonstrates his prowess in building and retaining a championship-caliber team.
The first extension of Giannis was a pivotal moment, cementing the Bucks’ future and eventually bringing home the Larry O’Brien for the first time in 50 seasons.
To make his case even more remarkable, the acquisition of Damian Lillard this off-season, one of the NBA’s top 75 players of all time, and within weeks of extending Giannis, proved to me, and to the world, that this guy is all about winning, and nothing will stop him.
His vision and strategic decision-making have turned the Milwaukee Bucks into a formidable force in the league, year in and year out.
Horst’s impressive track record in retaining superstar talent, signing key pieces, and his ability to make high-impact trades have undeniably solidified his status as the league’s best executive – the debate is now OVER!
Under his leadership, the expectation in Milwaukee has been infinitely raised, and every year, it’s now championship or bust.
