Drummond started the third quarter, but the NBA’s leading rebounder wasn’t the same in the second half. He went 6 for 11 from the field in the first half and 0 for 3 in the second. “We just tried to be physical,” Middleton said of the Bucks’ plan for Drummond. “We know he doesn’t like contact. Once he misses a couple, he is going to get down on himself and start forcing tough shots. Greg did a great job of just making him shot tough shots and not letting him get to his right hand.”
What also swayed Monroe toward Milwaukee were conversations with former Pistons teammates who played for the Bucks, including Caron Butler, Brandon Jennings and Brandon Knight. Middleton was Monroe’s teammate in Detroit during the 2012-13 season and has remained so close that Monroe shared Thanksgiving dinner last year when Milwaukee was in town to play the Pistons. When he realized the Bucks had a chance, Middleton was persistent in calling and texting Monroe – “every five minutes,” Monroe said with his baritone laugh – to convince him that he needed to come. “He’s a great friend of mine, so I didn’t want to do too much,” Middleton said. “I just know, I told him he had to make the best decision for himself, but we wanted him here and we needed him to take it to the next level.”
On Wednesday, Middleton stepped out of his comfort zone and penned an essay for The Players Tribune. He wasn’t writing about basketball. Instead, he shared his insights as a native of Charleston, S.C., in the wake of the June 17 attack at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in which nine people were shot and killed during a Bible study. Back in Charleston since the season ended, Middleton was driving through downtown, blocks away from the church, when the shootings happened. His grandmother Juanita Middleton, who has been an active member of the Charleston community for decades, knew four of the victims personally. She introduced Khris to one of them, Cynthia Hurd, in early June when Hurd dropped her nephews off at his summer basketball camp. “I’ve been thinking a lot about Ms. Hurd and her nephews these days,” Middleton wrote.
