Malcolm Brogdon Responds to Giannis and Bucks Loss
Former Bucks guard and current Celtic and NBA 6th man of the year Malcolm Brogdon responded on Saturday to the Bucks losing their playoff series to the #8 seeded Miami Heat. He also had a comment on Bucks Superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo’s comments on success and failure that were made after the game.
Brogdon was interviewed and said:
Giannis has gotten better and better some people have called him the best player in the world, that is for others to judge. He’s a great player… He’s a guy that handles success and handles failure and handles it all like a champion.
Brogdon was a former Milwaukee Buck and was selected in the second round (pick 36) by Milwaukee. He played with Giannis as he began to develop into the premiere player he is today.

I’ve watched him grow over the years…he stays hungry and puts in the work. He is never content. He really puts in the work
What Giannis said?
Of course, the NBA and the entire sports world continues to react to a postgame press-conference answer from Antetokounmpo regarding Milwaukee being upset by the 8th seeded Miami Heat. Giannis Antetokounmpo has been praised by so many for his view on success vs failure. The clip of the question is below.
Many Bucks fans have taken comfort in this answer, hoping that the team will be back in the hunt for an NBA Championship again in the 23-24 season. Of course losing Brogdon was a player the Bucks could have certainly used this season.
For Milwaukee to be able to contend again, major changes are forthcoming to their roster, along with new ownership. Will Milwaukee continue to go over the NBA’s luxury tax? Will Khris Middleton be back? What about Brook Lopez?
The team and its fans will watch anxiously with all that will happen over the summer, including who will “win” the NBA draft lottery on May 16th. In the upcoming NBA draft the Bucks hold their own second round pick. Hopefully the can find another diamond in the rough like Malcolm Brogdon from the University of Virginia.
