Top 20 Bucks of All Time

Updated: Jun 9

Top 20 Bucks

Today I will be breaking down my top 20 Milwaukee Bucks of all time. The Bucks have been an NBA franchise since the 1968-69 season.

 
 
Junior Bridgeman

20. Junior Bridgeman

Bridgeman played 10 seasons with the Bucks with career averages of 13.9 PPG, 2.4 APG, and 3.7 APG. Bridgeman was a really good scorer at the SF position, but what holds him back is he has no accolades, and has little to no playoff success only making the playoffs 6x times with no finals appearances.


Sam Cassell

19. Sam Cassell

Sam played 4 and a half seasons for the Bucks with career averages of 19.0 PPG, 7.2 APG, and 4.0 RPG. Sam didn't have any accolades with the Bucks, however, he was arguably an All-Star every season he played. The thing that puts him here at 20 is the fact that he was a very good all-around player for the Bucks and he helped take the Bucks to the Eastern Conference Finals during the 2000-01 season losing the the 76ers in 7 games.


Brian Winters

18. Brian Winters

Brian was nearly a Buck lifer playing 8 seasons with the Bucks with career averages of 16.7 PPG, 4.3 APG, and 2.7 RPG. He was a 2x NBA All-Star, however you could argue that he could've been an All-Star 2 or 3 more times. Brian was one of the first sharpshooters from 3 shooting roughly 36% (which is nothing crazy now, but back then was pretty good), he was also a pretty solid perimeter defender averaging 1.2 SPG for his career with the Bucks. Winters is being held back a lot mainly due to the lack of accolades and playoff success never making it to the finals.


Alvin Robertson

17. Alvin Robertson

Alvin played 3 and a half seasons with the Bucks with career averages of 12.4 PPG, 4.8 APG, and 5.2 RPG. He was a 1x STL Champ averaging 3 steals a game in the 1990-91 season, a 1x All-Star, and was a 2x All-Defensive Team member. Alvin was an absolute demon on defense averaging 2.7 SPG with the Bucks for his career and was a surprisingly good rebounder for a SG. Had he played slightly longer with the Bucks he could've moved up multiple spots.


Jon McGlocklin

16. Jon McGlocklin

Jon played 8 seasons with the Bucks with career averages of 12.6 PPG, 3.2 APG, and 2.4 RPG. He was a 1x NBA All-Star (arguably a 2x NBA All-Star), and a 1x NBA Champ. Jon was a huge factor for the Bucks helping them win the franchise's first Championship in the 1970-71 season. Jon was a very efficient scorer shooting 51% from the field sadly the 3-point line wasn't in the NBA yet, so who knows if he was a good shooter from 3.


Ricky Pierce

15. Ricky Pierce

Ricky played 8 seasons with the Bucks with career averages of 16.5 PPG, 2.0 APG, and 2.7 RPG. He was a 1x NBA All-Star and a 2x Sixth Man of the Year. Ricky was a scoring machine off the bench for the Bucks averaging over 20 points off the bench in 2 separate seasons. Had he made 1 or 2 more All-Star appearances he could easily go up one more spot.


Paul Pressey

14. Paul Pressey

Paul played 8 seasons for the Bucks with career averages of 11.9 PPG, 5.6 APG, and 4.3 RPG. Paul was a 3x All-Defensive Team member. I have Paul over Ricky because Paul is a way better all-around player than Ricky, also he had slightly better playoff success. Paul was a really good all-around defensive guy and you could argue that he could have made a defensive team every season that he was with the Bucks.


Vin Baker

13. Vin Baker

Vin played 4 seasons for the Bucks with career averages of 18.3 PPG, 2.7 APG, and 9.5 RPG. He was an All-Rookie Team member in the 1993-94 season, a 3x NBA All-Star, and a 1x All-NBA Team member. Baker was a great all-around PF/C for the Bucks being a great defender, scorer, and rebounder. Had he played longer for the Bucks he could've flown up the list and could've been one of the greatest Bucks, but we'll never know.


Glenn Robinson

12. Glenn Robinson

Glenn played 8 seasons for the Bucks with career averages of 21.1 PPG, 2.8 APG, and 6.2 RPG. He was an All-Rookie Team member in the 1994-95 season and a 2x NBA All-Star. I have Glenn right outside of my top 10 because of the fact that he just doesn't have a lot of accolades, however, I feel like his time with the Bucks was underrated he should have made way more All-Stars appearances. I have Glenn over Vin Baker because even though Glenn didn't have crazy playoff success Vin never made the playoffs, also Glenn just played way longer than Vin Baker.


Michael Redd

11. Michael Redd

Redd played 11 seasons for the Bucks with career averages of 20.0 PPG, 2.3 APG, and 4.0 RPG. He was a 1x NBA All-Star and a 1x All-NBA Team member. Redd was a crazy explosive scorer during his tenure with the Bucks with his best scoring season being 26.7 PPG. How he didn't make more than one All-Star appearance is crazy to me because this guy was very very good.


Sadly toward the end of his career, he tore his ACL and MCL and after fully recovering a year later he tore both ligaments again, after that, he wasn't the same player. What holds him back is playoffs success and more accolades however I think he should've had more, which is why I put him this high.


Terry Cummings

10. Terry Cummings

Terry played 6 seasons for the Bucks with career averages of 19.4 PPG, 2.3 APG, and 7.8 RPG. He was a 2x NBA All-Star and a 2x All-NBA Team member. Was a great all-around player, and an underrated guy with the Bucks he was arguably an All-Star every season with the Bucks. He helped his team reach the Eastern Conference Finals only once getting swept by the Boston Celtics. What holds him back is more accolades, and better playoff success had he made a finals or made the Eastern Conference Finals more than once he could have gone higher.

 
 
Ray Allen

9. Ray Allen

Ray played 7 seasons for the Bucks with career averages of 19.6 PPG, 3.8 APG, and 4.6 RPG. He was a 1996-97 All-Rookie Team member, 3x NBA All-Star, and a 1x All-NBA Team member. Ray is one of the greatest shooters of all time and a pretty good rebounder for an SG. The reason I can't put him any higher is the lack of accolades and no championship with the Bucks most of the people ahead of Ray have a championship and I value championships very highly.


Khris Middleton

8. Khris Middleton

Khris so far has played 11 seasons tying the franchise most seasons played with the Bucks. He had career averages of 17.4 PPG, 3.9 APG, and 4.9 RPG. Khris is a 3x NBA All-Star and a 1x NBA champ. Khris is a super-efficient scorer from everywhere and is a very underrated playmaker. I have him this high because of how important he was to helping the Bucks win their 2nd championship. He is a perfect "Robin" to Giannis which is why they tend to be the best team in the East every season since the 2018-19 season.


Bob Dandridge

7. Bob Dandridge

Bob played 9 seasons for the Bucks with career averages of 18.6 PPG, 3.2 APG, and 7.3 RPG. He was an All-Rookie Team member during the 1969-70 season, a 3x NBA All-Star, and a 1x Champion. Bob was a really good all-around player great scorer, rebounder, and defender. I have Bob over Khris because Bob is basically the better version of Khris Middleton minus the 3-point shot which was not a thing until Bob was getting out of his prime. However, these two can be flipped it really comes down to who you like more.


Jrue Holiday

6. Jrue Holiday

Jrue played just 3 seasons for the Bucks, but they were very important 3 seasons. Jrue had career averages of 18.5 PPG, 6.8 APG, and 4.7 RPG. He was a 1x NBA All-Star, a 3x All-Defensive Team member, and a 1x Champion. Jrue will always be known as one of the best all-around defenders, especially on 1v1's.


Jrue was also a very efficient scorer shooting almost 40% from three. I put Jrue this high because I feel like without him the Bucks would not have won the NBA Championship that's how important he was. The stats may not show it, but I watched those games against the Brooklyn Nets and he was so good against them, and who knows if the Nets were fully healthy they may have beat the Bucks, but they barely dodged that bullet thanks to Jrue and obviously Giannis.


Oscar Robertson

5. Oscar Robertson

The Big O played 4 seasons for the Bucks with career averages of 16.3 PPG, 7.5 APG, and 4.9 RPG. He was a 2x NBA All-Star, 1x All-NBA Team member, and a 1x Champion. Oscar will always be known for his amazing all-around play leading the NBA with the most triple-doubles of all time until Westbrook took the title a couple of years ago, but Oscar was a very vital player for the Bucks helping them win the franchise's first championship. Had he played longer for the Bucks or played there during his prime he could have gone higher, but he just doesn't have as many accolades as some of the people ahead of him have, but he was still very good during his short time with the Bucks.


Marques Johnson

4. Marques Johnson

Johnson played 7 seasons for the Bucks with career averages of 21.0 PPG, 3.7 APG, and 7.5 RPG. He was an All-Rookie Team member during the 1977-78 season, a 4x NBA All-Star, and a 3x All-NBA Team member. Johnson was an amazing scorer, especially in the mid-range, and was a really good all-around defender.


Johnson's career high for points in a single game was 40 which he did twice, also he had 4 triple-doubles during his career showing he had very few weaknesses with the main one being he wasn't a good 3pt shooter at all, but really no one was during the 80s. Even though Johnson never won a championship with the Bucks he was a great playoff performer averaging 21.5 PPG, 3.7 APG, and 7.9 RPG, and was averaging 1 steal and 1 block for his career in the the playoffs.


Sidney Moncrief

3. Sidney Moncrief

Sidney played 10 seasons for the Bucks with career averages of 16.7 PPG, 3.9 APG, and 5.0 RPG. He was a 5x NBA All-Star, 5x All-Defensive Team member, 5x All-NBA Team member, and 2x Defensive Player of the Year award winner. Moncrief is one of the best defenders of all time and was a great scorer as well averaging over 20 PPG during his prime. He was one of the best SGs during the 80s until his degenerative knee condition affected cartilage in both of his knees which destroyed more prime Moncrief. If he could have won a championship or made a finals it would make it slightly easier to put him higher, but there is some serious competition ahead of him.


Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

2. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

Kareem played 6 seasons for the Bucks with career averages of 30.4 PPG, 4.3 APG, and 15.3 RPG. He was a part of the All-Rookie Team in 1969-70, also winning Rookie of the Year, a 1x BLK Champ, 2x Scoring Champ, 6x NBA All-Star, a 4x All-Defensive Team member, a 5x All-NBA Team member, 3x NBA MVP, 1x NBA Champion, and 1x NBA Finals MVP. Kareem is a top 5 player of all time and is one of the greatest all-around players of all time having few weaknesses. This shouldn't be a surprise to anybody that Kareem made it into the top 2 and would number if the guy ahead of him had never played for the Bucks.


Giannis Antetokounmpo

1. Giannis Antetokounmpo

The Greek Freak has played 10 seasons so far for the Bucks with career averages of 22.7 PPG, 4.7 APG, and 9.6 RPG. He was an All-Rookie Team member during the 2013-14 season, a Most Improved Player of the Year award winner, a 7x NBA All-Star, a 1x All-Star Game MVP, a 5x All-Defensive Team member, a 7x All-NBA Team member, a Defensive Player of the Year award winner, a 2x MVP, a 1x NBA Champion, and a 1x NBA Finals MVP.


Although his stats may not look better than Kareem's in Giannis last 5 seasons Giannis hasn't averaged less than 28 PPG and hasn't averaged less than 10 RPG. Giannis is already one of the greatest PFs of all time and is a few years to early to have the top 10 all-time conversations. Like Kareem he has few weaknesses being they both aren't great shooters from the FT line or from three, however, Giannis is the better Mid-Range shooter. Giannis has dropped over 50 points in a single game 7x so far in his career and still has a very bright future ahead of him being only 28 years old and soon to be 29.
