Milwaukee Bucks: All-Time Greatest Point Guards

2 of 7

Oscar Robertson

Not only is Robertson a contender for the title of the greatest Bucks point guard of all-time, but he also belongs in the mix for the greatest one guard to step foot in the NBA.

Robertson was about as dominant and complete as any player in his era.

He was named an All-Star in twelve of his 14 seasons in the NBA. He made nine All-NBA First Teams and two All-NBA Second Teams. He led the league in assists on six occasions. He was a Rookie of the Year, an MVP, and most importantly, Robertson became an NBA champion as a Buck in 1971.

At 6’5″, Robertson’s size and physicality was a handful for not only point guards of his time, but opponents in general. Known as “Mr. Triple-Double”, Robertson would go and mix it with the bigs to grab rebounds, on top of dishing to teammates and getting his own points. He was the ultimate do-it-all floor general.

As a Buck, Robertson was coming to the tail end of his career, yet he still showcased everything that made him great. With a young and emerging Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (at the time known as Lew Alcindor) at his side, he didn’t need to be the lead guy, but Robertson proved to be the perfect veteran complement.

For his time in Milwaukee, The Big O averaged 16.3 points, 7.5 assists and 4.9 rebounds, cementing a phenomenal legacy that could only have improved for Bucks fans if he had managed to come to Milwaukee earlier in his career.
