Milwaukee Bucks: 30 Most Significant Moments In Franchise History

16 of 31

16. Andrew Bogut Injury

Glenn Robinson wouldn’t be Milwaukee’s last first overall draft pick. Andrew Bogut joined that club in 2005, and although troubled by on again/off again injuries, he was an unquestionably important figure for the Bucks, on the rise throughout his time there.

Disaster then struck during a 2010 game against the Phoenix Suns. Showing his impressive athleticism for a man as big and as imposing as he was, Bogut showed his ability and willingness to get out and run the floor. After a fantastic outlet pass, Bogut finished the play with a thunderous dunk, but a push in the back from Amar’e Stoudemire caused an awkward fall.

The Australian’s right arm took the full brunt of his weight as he hit the ground, resulting in separate dislocations, fractures and sprains. Bogut would never be the same with the Bucks, and the move to trade him away initiated the rebuild which has brought the roster to its present point. Bogut’s fall altered the course of franchise history.
