It comes as no surprise that Milwaukee Bucks fans are not in a jovial mood after watching their team get destroyed by the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday night. This may have been Milwaukee’s first road game of the season, but this was the second time the Bucks have been blown out in their first four games of the season.
After suffering a 17-point loss at the hands of the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday, Wednesday was even worse as the Raptors secured a 130-111 win in a truly disappointing evening for Giannis Antetokounmpo and Co.
Milwaukee Bucks Fans Bring Out Pitchforks on Adrian Griffin
You just know that the finger-pointing was going to begin amid Milwaukee’s rough start to the new season. Unfortunately for first-year head coach Adrian Griffin, some of the fans believe that he’s to blame for the Bucks’ early season struggles.
The supporters did not hold back on Twitter:
Griffin's lack of experience is soooo obvious. His rotations are so bad and He has an obsession with Pat.
This team might get a bit better in the future but they are not going anywhere. Coaching matters in the playoffs and Griffin is gonna get outcoached so much. Huge thumbs down

Griffin is a terrible coach.
Give him some time but if this doesn’t improve bucks can’t afford to wait around

I know it’s too early but I’m telling y’all Adrian Griffin is not the man.

I've never given up on a coach this early. Griffin is NOT the answer. We look so damn lost out there on both ends. How the F is the ball in Pats/Beasley hands as much as they are while Lillard stands in the f'ing corner?!! And the defense is the worst it's looked in YEARS.

TAKE ADRIAN GRIFFIN OUT OF THE TEAM

Everyone knows that this new-look Bucks side will need to go through some growing pains along the way. However, it also isn’t totally surprising that some fans have already started to turn on Griffin after just four games.
There’s a lot of pressure on this team to live up to the lofty expectations that were brought about by their summer coup on Damian Lillard. It’s not as if the fans are going to blame Giannis Antetokounmpo. You also don’t expect them to turn on Dame.
Someone has to be the scapegoat, and at this point, it seems like that’s going to be Adrian Griffin.
