Milwaukee Bucks: 30 Greatest Scorers In Franchise History

10 of 31

22. Junior Bridgeman

Bridgeman is one of the most legendary figures in Milwaukee Bucks history. The Indiana native’s no. 2 jersey is one of the privileged few to hang from the Bradley Center’s rafters, and his selfless work as a swingman throughout the late 70s, to mid 80s played a major role in the franchise’s success.

What made Bridgeman so special as a player was the fact that on a team loaded with talent, the former Louisville Cardinal was always prepared to do whatever necessary to get his team a victory. That often meant Bridgeman came off the bench as a sixth or seventh man, but that never impacted the quality of his performance.

Bridgeman was an incredibly well-rounded basketball player, capable of doing a little bit of everything. From night to night, Bridgeman could always be relied upon to stuff the stat sheet, and he brought a similar range of skill to his scoring with only three-point shooting representing a real weakness.

For his ten total seasons in Milwaukee, Bridgeman averaged 13.9 points as the ideal role player, translating to an impressive 19.7 points per 36 minutes.
