  • Milwaukee Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo reacts after a 24-second violation during the first half of an NBA basketball game against the Miami Heat Wednesday Jan. 17 2018 in Milwaukee

Hours after the Kidd firing, Milwaukee picked up a 109-105 win over the Phoenix Suns at home.

"It's not all on one person". He feels a lot of loyalty to coach Kidd and that's a wonderful trait. This goes hand in hand with the report from ESPN's Chris Haynes that Giannis was "devastated" when he heard the news that Kidd was about to be fired.

"We appreciate everything that Jason has done for the Bucks organization, but we have chose to make a coaching change", Bucks general manager Jon Horst said in a news release Monday. Players who didn't like Kidd or have big egos might not like Giannis trying to save the job of a man who has hindered the team's progress the past 2 seasons. "We the ownership are universal in support of that", he added. The future Hall-of-Fame point guard was dismissed in the midst of his fourth season with the Bucks, during which time they went 139-152 and made the playoffs twice.

Under Kidd this season, the Bucks underwhelmed to a 23-22 start.


Jabari Parker is close to returning to full health and the reigning Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon is still performing well even though he's been moved to the bench. The superstar forward made significant production strides over the past four seasons, beginning the Kidd run averaging 12.7 points per game - as a 20-year-old - to posting scoring averages of 16.9 (2015-16), 22.9 (2016-17) and now 28.2.

Milwaukee is 8-12 since going a season-high five games over.500 on December 9.

"We didn't lose any talent". Of those 10 players, only two - Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Bob Lanier - played for at least five seasons with the Bucks. It will be an important hire for a franchise celebrating its 50th anniversary and getting ready for the opening of a new downtown arena next season.
