11. Bob Dandridge

The player with the distinction of being the most recently retired jersey in Milwaukee Bucks history, Bobby Dandridge was the sort of old-fashioned scoring wing that would probably be frowned upon in today’s NBA, but thrived in the 70s and 80s.

That’s not meant to be in any way disrespectful to what The Greyhound did, or how he played, it’s more indicative of a shift in thinking around the league. Mid-range jump shots may be an enemy of modern analytics, but they were near automatic for Dandridge.

Dandridge had shooting range, but was never afraid to get to the basket at the same time. As can also be said for his two most prominent teammates, Dandridge was afforded extra space to get to work due to the presence of Kareem and Oscar, and he took full advantage more often than not.

For his illustrious career in Milwaukee, the Virginia native averaged 18.6 points per game to go with his championship ring and three All-Star appearances.
