Milwaukee Bucks: Ranking Top 10 Draft Picks In Franchise History

8 of 11

#4 – Bob Dandridge

Bob Dandridge, also known as Bobby D, also known as the Greyhound, is probably the best fourth round pick in NBA history. This might be the best value pick to ever happen–Giannis will have to settle for second in that category of Bucks history.

Dandridge’s number 10 jersey is hanging in the rafters at the BMO Harris Bradley Center for a reason, after all. In addition to his great regular season statistics, Dandridge was a crucial part of Milwaukee’s 1971 championship. He just missed averaging a double-double in that postseason, posting 19.2 points, 9.6 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game.

Bobby D wasn’t the best Buck pick in 1969, but he’s right up there. Dandridge won rings with both the Bucks and later the Washington Bullets, and was remarkably consistent for both teams. The Greyhound could do it all–he averaged 20 points, seven rebounds and three assists per game in his prime Bucks years, from 1971 to 1977.

Dandridge was a major contributor to Milwaukee’s only title team, and was ultimately loyal to the Bucks, coming back to retire in Milwaukee in 1982. In a franchise crowded with historically great talent at the forward position, the Greyhound still remains near the front of the pack.
