The Milwaukee Bucks are the best team in the NBA right now.
There is no other team that has a perfect record and the 6-0 Bucks are making easy work of just about any squad before them.
Giannis Antetokounmpo and his team have made no secret of their plans for the season: they are aiming to go all the way and return to – and win – the NBA Finals.
It got kind of lost in the Nets drama yesterday, but the Milwaukee Bucks assigning Khris Middleton to the Wisconsin Herd to practice was notable. Should mean that Middleton is ramping up towards a return. That'll only make the 6-0 Bucks even stronger to have their best wing back.

And they are now on the verge of another superstar player returning.
Keith Smith noted that Khris Middleton has recently been assigned to the Wisconsin Herd practice.
This a good step forward and a great sign that means the three-time All-Star is on his way to returning to the team.
Therefore, the best team in the NBA could be getting even better soon.
Middleton On The Mend
Middleton has had bad luck with injuries lately and his current wrist problems have kept him off the court for weeks.
So, what does he bring that will make the Bucks all the more dangerous?
His career average is 17.1 points, 4.9 rebounds, and 3.8 assists.
He bolsters the team in pretty much every way, on both sides of the floor.
Additionally, Middleton has developed a very close working relationship with Antetokounmpo, and the two work very well together.
Middleton has become The Greek Freak’s right-hand man and he is very comfortable and happy with that role.
When Middleton comes back, you can expect the team to perform better because there will be less pressure on the starters, and Antetokounmpo will get better looks and perform even stronger.
Middleton is a crucial part of the team’s long-term success and he is on the way back.
