10. Gary Payton
If this list was compiled based just on the greatest point guards to ever pull on a Bucks jersey, regardless of their contributions to the team, this man would likely be as high as second overall. No matter how much time passes, the sour taste from Payton’s ultra brief stop in Milwaukee remains though.
As an aging star arriving in Milwaukee, Payton was always going to have his work cut out for him in truly winning over the fanbase, but in leaving as a free agent at the end of his only season with the team his “legacy” in Milwaukee was sealed.
Still, what can’t be overlooked is just how well “The Glove” played in his 34 games in the Cream City. Payton averaged 19.6 points, 7.4 assists, 3.1 rebounds and 1.4 steals in the regular season, before notching up 18.5 points and 8.7 assists per game in a six-game series against the New Jersey Nets.
Memories of Payton will never be fond, but the contributions he was able to give at the age of 34 act as a testament to just how good he once was.
