Jonathan offered further detail on a number of the topics he wrote about, including:

Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jabari Parker

  • What type of players will they become moving forward?
  • If Antetokounmpo takes over the lead playmaking role, how will that affect Parker?
  • Is there someone else that plays like Parker? Can he adjust his game to get to the free throw line?

The Bucks Shooting Guard Options

  • How can Tony Snell help? How can the Bucks help Snell?
  • What does Rashad Vaughn’s future look like in the NBA?
  • Can Malcolm Brogdon help out at shooting guard?
  • Is the solution simply to play Mirza Teletovic with Antetokounmpo and Parker and bypass any of the “true” shooting guard options?

Thon Maker

  • What type of player can Maker become as he develops?
  • Is he potentially the answer to many of the problems with the Bucks’ strange lineups?

Bucks Miscellanea

  • Is it okay to limit players from doing certain things while trying to develop them?
  • What are the proper expectations for this Bucks season? How do you measure success?
  • How many wins can Bucks fans expect?
  • Is it actually a good year to be in the lottery? Who could the Bucks possibly add in the draft?
