A list of the best Milwaukee Bucks of all time. Formed in 1968, the Bucks experienced early success on the account of a coin flip. After their inaugural season, Milwaukee lucked itself into drafting a center who many consider to be the greatest player of all time. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, then Lew Alcindor, was drafted by the Bucks and quickly became the most dominant force in the NBA. With Abdul-Jabbar as the team's center along with Hall of Fame point guard Oscar Robertson, whom the team acquired in a trade with the Cincinnati Royals, the Bucks won their first NBA title in 1971. After several more successful seasons, Abdul-Jabbar forced a trade to Los Angeles and the Bucks haven't been back to the Finals since.

Despite Abdul-Jabbar's departure, the team has had some outstanding players in its history. Sidney Moncrief was one of the best Bucks players of the 1980s and though it took a while for the team to jell, the team's big three of Ray Allen, Glenn Robinson and Sam Cassell led the team to the Eastern Conference Finals in 2001. Though the team fell short, some of the best players in franchise history were on that team. Allen was the team's biggest superstar during that era. Though his trade to Seattle should have devastated the team, in stepped Michael Redd who became one of the best shooting guards in the league and played for the U.S.A. Olympic team before injuries cut his career short.
