Bucks Basketball History
Fans of the NBA know that the Bucks are working hard to put together a team that can contend over the long run. After all, it's been way too long since Milwaukee won an NBA championship. That doesn't stop folks from looking for great Bucks tickets.
The Bucks were part of the NBA expansion year, way back in 1968. They made great use of their first round draft pick, and acquired Lou Alcindor (Kareem Abdul Jabbar.) The results were immediate, and Milwaukee found themselves 30 games above .500 in the first season with Jabbar on the court. With the addition of Oscar Robertson, Milwaukee won it all in 1971. The team enjoyed being a contender for most of the decade.
Good times would come and go for the Bucks. The toughest years for Milwaukee were from 1990 through 2001. In an effort to bring the Bucks back to their former glory, George Karl was hired as head coach. Success came soon after, and the Bucks were perennial playoff participants. Players such as Ray Allen and Sam Cassell were a force to be reckoned with.
The team came close to making to the NBA finals in 2001.
The Milwaukee Bucks finished the season with a record of 42-40, and grabbed the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs. This is a team that might just be one great player from being a contender. Sadly, the team had a 2-1 series lead in the first round on the third-seeded Toronto Raptors before losing the next three games and bowing out.
During the offseason, the Bucks made some massive changes to the staff in their front office. Jon Horst is now the general manager. That change was just a part of the new “big picture” in Milwaukee. The team adjusted the staff for college scouting, international scouting, basketball operations, communications, and more. Will the shake-up bring the team more wins? At the time of this post, the team is struggling. Change take time to adjust to, and Milwaukee is looking years down the road, just as they look forward to playing in their new venue. Stay tuned Bucks fans, this team is looking for big wins, and playoff victories in the coming seasons.
In the draft, they selected power forward D.J. Wilson from Michigan in round one. Their biggest move came just a few weeks into this current season, when they traded (disgruntled) center Greg Monroe, plus draft choices, to the Phoenix Suns for guard Eric Bledsoe. The Bucks are pushing hard to get up into the top quarter of the Eastern Conference, led by their Greek superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo. If Jabari Parker can find anything of his former self, their NBA Central division opponents should take notice.
Join your fellow Bucks fans as the team heads to the NBA playoffs. In years past, Kidd made some positive moves during the off season, acquiring O. J. Mayo, Zaza Pachulia, and Viacheslav Kravtsov. See you at the BMO Harris Bradley Center for all the Bucks action in 2015.
Just as things were starting to look up for the Milwaukee Bucks, their top draft pick was sidelined for the remainder of the 2014-2015 season.
Jabari Parker tore his ACL during a game on December 15, taking him out for the rest of the year. Milwaukee was hoping for great things from the young rookie, and up until
the injury, Parker was very productive on the court. Milwaukee continues to be a .500 ball club, despite the setback.
The Milwaukee Bucks, historically, have been one of the NBA’s “struggling – small market” teams. What that means is they haven’t been the worst team out there, but at the same time, they certainly haven’t been one of the better ones. They have had some success, though most of it came in just the first few years of the franchise. Of the Bucks first 23 years in the league, they made the playoffs in 19 of those seasons. Of those 19 playoff appearances, they reached the Eastern Conference Finals six times- 1971, 1972, 1974, 1983, 1984, and 1986. They went 2-4 in those Conference Finals appearances, reaching the NBA Finals in 1971, and 1974. They won the NBA Championship in 1971, and lost in the NBA Finals in 1974. Since 1992, the Bucks have fallen on some hard times. They have won just two playoff series, both in the 2001 playoffs, in which they reached the Eastern Conference Finals.
Things aren’t all doom and gloom though. After years of mediocrity, the Bucks finally elected to allow themselves to hit rock bottom in the 2013-2014 season. That decision garnered the ability to select Jabari Parker with the second overall selection. Jabari Parker’s departure early in 2014 did hurt, but that hasn’t derailed the Bucks season at all. In addition to Parker, they also were able to turn their roster around with younger players and that has put them in prime position to be in the postseason. They current hold the 6th seed in the East and will in all likelihood be either the 5th or 6th seed.
The most notable Milwaukee Bucks players to take the court were Oscar Robertson, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Sidney Moncrief, Glenn Robinson, Bob Dandrige, and Marques Johnson. We’re sure that fans would want to add a few more names, but the list above would easily be on everyone’s top ten.
The Milwaukee Bucks made the 2015 playoffs, taking on the Chicago Bulls. The first game
was on the road, and the team had an uphill battle. By the end of the first half, Milwaukee was down
by nine points. Both teams went toe to toe for during the second half of the game, giving up very little
in the way of points. Milwaukee lost 91-103.
In game two, Khris Middleton scored 22 points, while Giannis Antetokounmpo finished
the game with eleven rebounds and four assists. The team could not stop Jimmy Butler, who
scored 31 points that evening. If there was any hope for the Bucks, they needed to win in game three.
Game three didn't go well for Milwaukee, although the team led at halftime, both teams
battled through two overtime periods, with Milwaukee scoring just five points at the end.
Milwaukee found themselves three games down.
Milwaukee rallied in games four and five of the first round. The Bucks pulled out a win in the last second of game five
taking down the Bulls with a "buzzer-beater" at the baseline. There would be a game five after all. Milwaukee played their best
game defensively, in game five. The bucks led in every quarter, and took care of the ball on the other side.
The team left the United Center that night with life. Game six would be at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.
Milwaukee fell apart in game six, losing by the widest margin in their playoff history. It was over by halftime.
Still, Bucks fans are excited about the 2016-2017 season.
The Milwaukee Bucks had a somewhat disappointing 2015-2016 season. Expecting to be serious contenders in the Eastern Conference, the Bucks had trouble finding their identity all season. Everything that could go wrong went wrong, and they stumbled to a 33-49 finish, good for the fourth-worst record in the Eastern Conference by seasons’ end. During the off season, they traded for Matthew Dellavedova, signed Jason Terry, and re-signed forward Steven Novak and center Miles Plumlee. In the draft, the Bucks had the 10th overall selection, and used it to draft the highly discussed center from Australia Thon Maker. Their biggest move though, was the contract extension of Giannis. On September 19th, the Bucks agreed to a contract extension with Giannis of four years, 100 million. So far this season, the Bucks are dead level at 18-18, currently tied with the Wizards for the 8th seed in the Eastern Conference.
Some bright spots for this season include the defeat of the Cavaliers, and the way that the team manages to confuse opponents with their defense. Will they make the playoffs this season? If they can string a good run of wins together, late in the season, they should be in the NBA playoffs.
The Milwaukee bucks had a good 2017-2018 season a year ago, considering the circumstances. At nearly the mid-season point, the team fired head coach Jason Kidd, and replaced him with assistant Joe Prunty. The team held strong, finishing the season with a record of 44-38, good enough to make the Eastern Conference playoffs. In round one they were matched up with the Boston Celtics, and took the series to seven games before exiting the playoffs 112-96 in game seven.
The first order of business this off season for the team was to hire a new head coach. Eventually, they selected Mike Budenholzer as the new man in charge. Budenholzer spent the last five seasons as the Hawks head coach, prior to taking the Milwaukee job. Next up was the draft. The Bucks used their first-round draft choice on point guard Donte DiVincenzo from Villanova, who they chose for his big game experience. DiVincenzo is joining a talented group of now surrounding Giannis which includes the likes of Thon Maker, D.J. Wilson, Eric Bledsoe, Brook Lopez, Ersan Ilyasova, and now George Hill, who was recently acquired from Cleveland.
Milwaukee has a loaded roster that surrounds perhaps at this moment, the best basketball player in the NBA. The East is wide open this year. The Warriors look beatable. The Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy could be coming to Milwaukee in June.
