History Of Milwaukee Bucks

Milwaukee Bucks have been full of surprises since their very beginning.

That includes the story of how they got their name, the unbelievable improvement after acquiring Ferdinand Alcindor and finally winning the NBA championship in only third season of their existence.

Bucks had their home for years at the Bradley Center, one of the oldest NBA facilities.

But in August 2019 the team moved to a new, freshly opened and much more spacious arena – the Fiserv Forum.

Team Creation

The Bucks were created in 1968. At that point, it had been 13 years since Milwaukee had its own NBA team.

There was a contest for the new team’s name. The final choice was Bucks, despite this name getting only the second highest number of votes.

As one fan argued, those medium-sized deer, native to Wisconsin, were “spirited, good-jumpers, fast and agile”, just like the new team was meant to be.

Best Seasons

In 1971, just three seasons after their creation, the Bucks won the NBA championship.

In 1973-1974 season, Milwaukee won the Western Conference finals, but lost in the NBA finals with Boston Celtics.

Then in the 2020-2021 season the Bucks won the 2nd NBA Championship in their franchise history.

Let’s see if they can repeat in the 2021-2022 season.

Most Famous Players

Kareem Abdul Jabbar joined the Bucks in 1969, at that time still going by his birth name Ferdinand Alcindor.

He changed his name two years later, right after his team won the NBA championship. Jabbar became the highest scorer in the history of the NBA and remains among the best players the league has ever seen.

His trademark was the skyhook, a variation of the hook shot, which Jabbar could perform from much further away from the basket than other players. He stayed with the Bucks for six seasons.

In 2013 another brilliant player, Giannis Antetokounmpo joined the team.

He is fast, skilled and almost seven-feet tall. After six seasons of multiple success, he received the trophy for the NBA Most Valued Player in 2019 & 2020 and was also the NBA Finals MVP in 2021.

Other notable players include: Moses Malone, Sidney Moncrief, Ray Allen, Oscar Robertson, and Andrew Bogut.
