Welcome back for another slice of Milwaukee Bucks history!

In recent weeks we’ve examined the franchise’s greatest draft picks, as well as highlighting our top 20 individual performances in Bucks history. Now, it’s time to turn to another exciting aspect of the team’s history.

Scoring is the foundation upon which basketball is built upon. The saying may so often be that defense wins championships, but as we’ve seen across multiple sports over the years, if there isn’t sufficient offense to complement it, that simply isn’t the case.

In basketball, scoring can often take on an almost mythical quality. The ideal may be to watch a team of players unselfishly share the ball on their way to glittering success, but that’s a dream that’s rarely achieved.

Even on the greatest of teams, you can generally count on their being one standout player who finds themselves responsible for scoring. Maybe, they won’t have to shoulder the load of racking up points for their team for an entire 48 minutes, but when it matters most, they’re the ones who are called upon.

Who are the best scorers that the Bucks have had down the years though?

Who are the guys, that above all else, could be relied upon to put the ball in the hoop regardless of situation?

We delved deep into franchise history to find 30 of the very best who’ve represented Milwaukee with their scoring in the NBA.
