Often overlooked in Bucks history, the fact is that there’s a reason Brian Winters’ jersey hangs from the rafters in the Bradley Center. Much like Johnny Mac, Winters was a sharpshooter who drove his team on to great success.
Having come to Milwaukee as one of the key pieces of the return received by the Bucks in exchange for Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Winters immediately played at an All-Star level and went on to do similar for the remainder of his NBA career.
Winters played eight seasons in Milwaukee, utilizing his smooth shooting stroke to score in volume throughout. Often attempting upwards of 17 shots per game, Winters’ production gave a big boost to the Bucks post-Kareem and allowed them to kick on to form a new contender.
Overall for his time in Milwaukee, Winters averaged 16.7 points, 4.3 assists and 2.7 rebounds per game.
