Bob Weiss had a lot of stops in his long (for his day) NBA career. Milwaukee was one of six NBA franchises Weiss played with in his 12 year career. Weiss reached the pinnacle of the NBA quickly, winning a title with the Philadelphia 76ers in just his second NBA season.
It’s hard to say Weiss had much to do with the win, considering he played just four minutes in the postseason that year, but he got his ring regardless. He would go on to do more in the postseason in some later years, although Weiss’ only ring came right the Warriors.
His Milwaukee tenure was short. After just 15 games Weiss went with Bob Love to the Bulls for future Bucks All-Star Flynn Robinson. Weiss actually outscored his average in Milwaukee’s first game, notching eight points as opposed to the 6.6 he averaged with the Bucks across his short tenure.
Weiss was a career role player who only cracked ten points per game twice and never reached the 12 point per game mark. He was a pretty good passer though, and teams must’ve liked having him around. 12 years was a pretty long career back then in the NBA.
