8. Ray Allen

It doesn’t seem unfair to say that it was in Milwaukee that the NBA got to witness the best of Ray Allen’s potential as a scorer. Obviously, Allen would go on to achieve great things in Seattle, Boston and Miami, but considering the players he was sharing the court and the ball with, his scoring as a Buck was exceptional.

Allen became more of a specialist jump shooter as time wore on in his career, but in his early years in the league with the Milwaukee Bucks, there was very little he couldn’t do when it came to putting the ball in the hoop. That in itself was a big part of the reason why the team thrived when Allen was a Buck.

Allen’s jump shot was always the biggest threat when he was on the court, and teams would get punished for giving him any space, but at the same time, as his younger more athletic self, the former UConn Husky was just as capable of putting the ball on the floor and driving straight to the rim for a thunderous slam.

For his six and a half seasons as a Buck, Allen averaged 19.6 points per game on his way to three All-Star appearances.
