The defending champions have flown under the radar this preseason compared to the drama from Boston and Philadelphia, but Milwaukee looks poised for a “You think last season was a fluke, watch us” regular season. Could we get an angry Ayton this season trying to prove his worth? Maybe, it’s more likely than him sulking through a season, but players tend not to forget when they feel disrespected. Zach LaVine is poised for an Olympic bump coming off his play in Tokyo, but my eyes will be on Patrick Williams, who could have a breakout season for Chicago at the four, plus they need his defense this season to hold things together on that end of the court. Anthony Edwards could explode in his second season, Karl-Anthony Towns seems in a better space mentally and poised for an All-NBA level season, and we may finally see a lot of him and D’Angelo Russell.
