Although he may not be in the Hall of Fame yet like many other great Bucks, Moncrief may have a legitimate case to be recognized as the greatest Buck of All-Time.
Moncrief had an exceptional supporting cast around him, but he undoubtedly took the reins of the team during a strong period for the franchise in the late 70’s and 80’s.
He ranks first in franchise history in free throws made, second in games played, minutes played, offensive rebounds and assists, and third in points and steals.
Moncrief led the Bucks to seven straight 50 win seasons, was a regular All-Star and feature on All-NBA teams, as well as winning back-to-back defensive player of the year awards (the only guard to ever achieve such a feat).
The fact that Moncrief played ten seasons in Milwaukee and showed incredible determination and loyalty throughout must also be taken into account. Sure, his commentary may not be the best, but there sure haven’t been many better than him who have taken to the hardwood to represent Milwaukee.
For his Bucks career, Moncrief averaged 16.7 points, 5.0 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 1.3 steals per game.
