Milwaukee Bucks: 30 Greatest Scorers In Franchise History

13 of 31

19. Oscar Robertson

Big scoring was nowhere near the top of Oscar Robertson’s priority list. After all, this is Mr. Triple-Double we’re talking about. In between an outstanding eye for a pass, and being probably the greatest rebounding point guard of all time, Robertson did find plenty of time to put the ball in the hoop.

Robertson’s career was certainly winding down by the time he joined up with the Bucks at the age of 32, but Robertson was smart enough to know exactly how to tailor his role to help a strong Bucks team to title success.

With Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Bob Dandridge to lean on, there were times when Robertson got a chance to fill a third option style of role, and although his scoring numbers may not have been as gaudy as they were in earlier years, that freedom allowed him to maximize his overall impact.

As a Buck, The Big O still managed to put up 16.5 points per game, equal to 15.7 points per 36 minutes. The team never wanted scoring to be his only focus, but without Robertson’s points Milwaukee would possibly be a championship banner poorer.
