Who has the better backcourt, the Los Angeles Lakers or the Milwaukee Bucks?

In our first series, we compared the the Lakers promising young core against that of the Minnesota Timberwolves.

We ultimately came to the conclusion that, although the Wolves do have an advantage due to the spectacular rookie season of Karl-Anthony Towns, the Lakers aren’t as far behind as many would have you think.

This time, the two teams in question will be the Milwaukee Bucks and of course, your Los Angeles Lakers. Both teams are in a similar stage in their rebuild at this point, with most of the pieces already in place and the most important goal going forward being player development.

In this edition of the series, we’ll be discussing only the two backcourt positions, with the rest of the series delving into the strengths and weaknesses of each team in the frontcourt and reserves.
