Local media such as “The Athletic” and “ESPN” reported on the 25th (Korean time) that Dak Rivers has agreed to become the new coach of the Milwaukee Bucks.
Eastern Conference powerhouse Milwaukee replaced Mike Budenholzer, who won the title after the end of last season. Budenholzer will step down as coach for the first time in two years after winning the title in Milwaukee.
Budenholzer’s successor was Adrian Griffin. Although he has no experience as a manager in the NBA, he beat out several candidates in the process of appointing a manager for his team, and superstar Yannis Antetokounmpo also reportedly showed positive response.
Griffin’s career as a manager at Milwaukee did not last long, however. Coach Terry Stotts had a bad issue before the opening of the season, but Griffin left the helm just three months after the start of the season. His performance was not bad with 30 wins and 13 losses, and he was held back by his serious defense skills at the bottom of the league.
The manager to succeed Griffin was decided as Doc Rivers. Immediately after Griffin was fired, the news that Milwaukee was interested in Rivers was reported, and the contract agreement was reported within a short period of time.
Rivers is an NBA coach and has many experiences. From 1999 to last year, he served as the coach of four clubs except for a brief period. He shone the most as a coach in the 2007-2008 season when he won the title at the Boston Red Sox.
However, it is regrettable that he left Boston and became the manager of the Clippers in 2013 until his time in Philadelphia. Although superstars such as Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, Joel Embiid, and James Harden were on the team, he never even made it to the conference finals, let alone won a championship for a long time.마카오카지노주소
When he was a Clippers player, he had two come-from-behind defeats with a 3-1 series lead. Not only that, but also in his first season as a manager of the Philadelphia Phillies, he collapsed to fifth-seeded Atlanta, failing to secure the top seed. He was eliminated in the second round in all four seasons as a manager of the Philadelphia Phillies.
In the process, many say that they lack crisis management skills or match management. Many people question whether he is suitable as the head coach of Milwaukee, which needs to go all-in to win the championship right now. Rivers needs to produce results quickly to quell such distrust.
Milwaukee, which has the one-two punch of Janice Antetokounmpo and Damien Lillard, is a team as strong as its offense. The problem is the defense, which ranks 25th in lost points on average. Can Rivers, who is united with Greek Goons, solve Milwaukee’s problems and dispel its sorrow?
