Milwaukee Bucks: 30 Greatest Scorers In Franchise History

31 of 31

1. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

Okay, so this is a surprise to nobody, but what do you want from us? It’d be a challenge to find many, if any, better scorers than Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in the history of the entire NBA, never mind just looking through the prism of the Milwaukee Bucks.

From the moment he stepped foot in the league, everybody knew and expected the man then known as Lew Alcindor to be different, but could anyone have expected what he actually want on to achieve? Let’s turn to some of his incredible individual achievements with Milwaukee.

Abdul-Jabbar scored over 14,000 points in just six seasons with the Milwaukee Bucks. He was an All-Star in each and every one of those campaigns. His lowest full season average in Milwaukee was 27 points per game. He had 10 games of 50 points or more while representing the Bucks. He was the NBA’s scoring champion in both 1971 and 1972.

There can be little doubting that the Bucks would never have had a title to their name if it wasn’t for Abdul-Jabbar, but aside from what he contributed to the team, his achievements in Milwaukee are incredible from an individual standpoint. Abdul-Jabbar is the league’s all-time leading scorer with over 38,000 points, and while he was playing in Milwaukee he averaged 30.4 per game.
