Bucks-Nets: Game 5 loss shows Giannis Antetokounmpo is not that guy, and Mike Budenholzer is not that coach

Let's get this straight right off the top: The Milwaukee Bucks did not choke in their crushing Game 5 loss to the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday night, a game which they led by as many as 17 points. They got beat by Kevin Durant, who is so much better than the best the Bucks have to offer that it doesn't even matter that Kyrie Irving is out and James Harden is basically down a leg.

Giannis Antetokounmpo, Mike Budenholzer, and the Bucks are maddening

Ever heard the term, “work smarter, not harder?” Well, the Milwaukee Bucks haven’t, as they love to make simple things complicated. Despite winning a ’90s-style, must-win game that was a mixture of good defense and horrible shot-making, the Bucks’ 86-83 win over the Nets means that Milwaukee was able to escape a 3-0 series hole, as it currently stands at 2-1. However, that loud sigh of relief you heard in Milwaukee is drenched in anxiety, as Thursday’s night game was a dead giveaway for why this will most likely be Mike Budenholzer’s last season coaching in Milwaukee.

Milwaukee Bucks: The Mike Budenholzer era is on life support

Jun 5, 2021; Brooklyn, New York, USA (Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports) There’s little doubt that we may be seeing the last games Mike Budenholzer coaches the Milwaukee Bucks. The Bucks’ 2020-21 season is on the brink as they trail the Brooklyn Nets 2-0 in their Eastern Conference Semifinals series and as it shifts back to Milwaukee for Games 3 and 4. It’s not a matter of stopping the bleeding for the Bucks rather turning back time in order to reset the start of the series, but alas, that seems to go against the laws of physics.

Pop’s coaching tree starts with Mike Budenholzer

The fresh, cool spring air is gone only to be replaced by another hot, Texas summer. The Spurs are on vacation and we enter that realm between the season ending and all of the events that prepare us for another season of Spurs basketball.

3 Candidates to Replace Mike Budenholzer After Milwaukee Bucks Are Eliminated by Brooklyn

For the third year in a row, the Milwaukee Bucks rode Giannis Antetokounmpo to a dominant first-round victory in the NBA Playoffs. But as badly as the Bucks folded against the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference semifinals last season, they were at least competitive in each game. During Game 2 against the Brooklyn Nets this time around, Mike Budenholzer’s team just stopped doing much of anything. The Nets and their Big Three Minus One blasted out to a gigantic early lead and never looked back.
