Milwaukee Bucks: 30 Greatest Scorers In Franchise History

28 of 31

4. Marques Johnson

He’s now earning a new army of devoted Bucks fans due to his stellar work in the broadcast booth as a color commentator, but long before that Johnson was already one of the greatest shows in the NBA thanks to his play in Milwaukee.

He may be best known for his association with the origins of the point forward role, and there’s no questioning that Johnson was an outstanding distributor. Don’t let you get the wrong impression of the former UCLA Bruin though, as he was an explosive and versatile scorer also.

Johnson spent seven seasons as a Buck, and after being a third overall pick in the 1977 NBA Draft, the Louisiana native wasted no time in showing his knack for scoring. It played a big part in complementing the rest of his play to earn him four All-Star appearances during his time in Milwaukee.

While Moncrief locked down on defense often guarding the opposition’s best player, Johnson was the man to consistently step up, showcase his wares, and carry the team’s scoring load. With Milwaukee, Johnson averaged 21 points per game, and 21.7 points per 36 minutes.
