Dandridge’s name will be familiar to even some of the younger Bucks fans out there, thanks to the fact that his no. 10 jersey was retired by Milwaukee towards the end of last season.
Although Dandridge could affectionately be referred to as the third wheel of Milwaukee’s championship team due to being paired up with Oscar Robertson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, his role in the history of the franchise should not be downplayed in any way.
After that famous duo had left for different cities, Dandridge remained in Milwaukee making an impact at the start of a new era for another successful Bucks team.
Even though, Dandridge would eventually move on to the Washington Bullets where he would remain for four seasons, fittingly he returned to Milwaukee to finish off his professional career.
Dandridge’s game mixed dynamic scoring with an intelligence which made him a skilled playmaker and master of the box-out. He was an ever-reliable in every way.
As a Buck, Dandridge averaged 18.8 points, 7.4 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game.
