Milwaukee Bucks Game Preview: January 22 vs Phoenix Suns

The Bucks probably had to fire Jason Kidd, and the social media team did something that they never could have imagined backfiring on them, and Twitter is enjoying something that comes at the expense of no one. The Bucks were considered an emerging force in the East at the start of the season.

The Milwaukee Bucks have fired head coach Jason Kidd, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Monday.

Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo was reportedly "devastated" by the firing.

The Phoenix Suns will visit Milwaukee in the Bucks' 46th game of the season on Monday night, and with just one game separating the eighth placed Bucks and the ninth placed Pistons, Milwaukee has already reached the point in the season when it would be a really good idea to avoid unnecessary slip-ups. Or maybe Jason Kidd's expense, but I don't think he's as anxious about balloons on the Bucks Twitter page as much as how he actually lost his job on Monday. The rest of the roster, meanwhile, is comprised of long and versatile players who, in theory, complement Antetokounmpo perfectly - alongside early-season trade acquisition Eric Bledsoe, a proven scorer.

He coached 291 games with the Bucks, holding a record of 139-152 and had only made the playoffs once. "We believe that a fresh approach and a change in leadership are needed to continue elevating our talented team toward the next level, bringing us closer to our goal of competing for championships".

This is an important year for the Bucks, who are celebrating the 50th anniversary of the franchise and getting ready for the opening of a new downtown arena.
