Milwaukee Bucks: 30 Most Significant Moments In Franchise History

19. Glenn Robinson Drafted First Overall

With the cornerstone figures of the 80s having retired or left the team, when the Bucks landed with the first overall pick of the 1994 NBA draft, it was vitally important that they didn’t select a flop.

The front office played it safe, selecting college standout and former Purdue Boilermaker Glenn Robinson with the top pick. It may still have taken time from then on, but this was the moment that really kickstarted the rebuild that would eventually bring Milwaukee to the Conference Finals in 2001.

Although players of the caliber of Jason Kidd and Grant Hill were selected after him, the Bucks could have no complaints at what they received out of “Big Dog” Robinson during his time with the franchise. When you draft right, good things happen.
