The 50 Greatest Players in Milwaukee Bucks History

42 of 51

10. Terry Cummings – T.C.

The Stats: Six seasons played in Milwaukee. 19.4/7.8/2.3/1.3/0.7 on 48.4/29.0/70.2.

The Accolades: All-Star in 1985 and 1989. Made the All-NBA Second Team in 1985 and the Third Team in 1988. 10th all-time among Bucks in points, fifth in rebounds, 10th in steals and 13th in blocks. 

The Breakdown: Terry Cummings put up incredible numbers for the Bucks between 1985 and 1989, his first and main tenure with the team. Cummings’ statistics as a Buck get watered down by his last year with the team–he averaged 21.7/8.3/2.6/1.4/0.8 on the Bucks in the 1980s.

Cummings was a dominant power forward in that stretch, and remains today one of the best true power forwards in Bucks history. T.C. showed up right at the end of the Don Nelson era and stuck around until about halfway through the Del Harris era, and like every Buck that played during the 1980s did not miss the playoffs at all during his main tenure.

When Cummings returned in a much lesser role in 1996, he and the Bucks did miss the postseason however. Despite that brief speck on an other-wise spotless basketball resume, Terry Cummings was fantastic for the entirety of his Milwaukee career. He brought it in the playoffs too, averaging 22/8.5/2.5 in the postseason with the Bucks.
