The Eric Bledsoe saga is complete. He will head to Milwaukee For Greg Monroe and a first round pick. Now that Eric Bledsoe is on a Eastern Conference contender, this should only put a bigger dent in the Cavaliers season.
The Cavaliers already have to deal with a Celtics team that is 100% legit and could beat them. Now, the Cavaliers have to worry about the Bucks. On top of Eric Bledsoe, the Bucks are young – and have the difference making star in the Greek Freak.
The Cavaliers could certainly beat Milwaukee still. But, with an old roster, who can’t play defense, (especially the perimeter), a team like the Milwaukee Bucks could tire them out if they end up playing Boston.
With the way Cleveland has been playing so far, it would not shock me if the Bucks beat the Cavaliers in a 7 game series. Giannis, Bledsoe, Brogdon, Middleton, Parker, Henson at the rim. This team was one solid perimeter player away from being a top seed/competitor. They got it, the East is wide open now.
