The 50 Greatest Players in Milwaukee Bucks History

23 of 51

29. Jay Humphries – A Dual-Threat Point Guard

The Stats: Five seasons played in Milwaukee. 13.4/2.7/6.0/1.8/0.1 on 48.6/31.4/79.2.

The Accolades: Lead the Bucks in win shares in 1990 and 1991, ranks 10th in Bucks history in assists recorded and eighth in assists per game. 

The Breakdown: One of the most surprising parts of this list is all the sneaky great point guards that have spent time on the Bucks throughout franchise history. Humphries is certainly one of those–in his three-year prime from 1990-92, Humphries averaged 14.8 points and 6.4 assists per game on just under 50 percent shooting from the field.

Humphries played an important role on the Del Harris team that made the Eastern Conference Semifinals in 1989. Humphries stepped up his game in the postseason that year, averaging 14.6 points and 7.8 rebounds on 49.5 percent shooting from the field.

That occasion is important because it’s one of exactly two times the Bucks have made it that far since Don Nelson left Milwaukee. It took Humphries a little while to gain the starting point guard spot on the Bucks, but once he got it he didn’t give it up until the team eventually traded him in 1992.
