Default Top 5 Favorite Buck Players All-Time

1. Oscar Robertson

One of the most versatile players of all time. Only player ever to average a triple double in a season. Key player with Lew Alcindor in the only Bucks title in history in 1971. He was also made a major impact on the game of basketball in the courts when he filed the Oscar Robertson suit which delayed the NBA/ABA merger and helped reform the college draft and free agency clauses. One of the most exciting players to watch. Great midrange game and had a great off the dribble shot. Impactful player on and off the court.

2. Lew Alcindor

Hard to not have one the greatest centers ever and main componenet to the 1971 title in the top 5. What else can be said about Lew Alcindor. He completely turned around the Bucks after he was drafted. His impact on the game was from day 1. Dominating force in UCLA and it continued with the Bucks. As a rookie, he average 29 and 15. In the year of their title run, he was awarded MVP and also won Finals MVP.

3. Sidney Moncrief

One of the most underrated players ever imo. Hardly gets enough recognition for his game. He was a defensive beast, winning the award in 83' and 84'. Known for his D but still found ways to score. One of the best defenders ever. Period.

4. Ray Allen

Possibly the best shooter of this era. Never seen such a pure shot. He only played 6.5 seasons with them but he had some nice runs with Big Dogg and Sam Cassell. He still is playing at a high level, and was great in Milwakee.

5. Brandon Jennings

The future. He is a superstar in the making. Great feel for the game and great vision on the court. He has a knack for finding guys and he is a very capable scorer. He can run a team. He is going to be something special.

Honorable Mentions:

Bob Lanier, Glenn Robinson, Sam Cassel, Andrew Bogut, Jack Sikma, Jon McGlocklin
