The young Milwaukee Bucks have a long way to go, but it’s possible that they rewrite Milwaukee’s career leaders in several statistics.
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Paul Pressey. Ray Allen. Alton Lister. All players who accomplished amazing statistical feats in their time with the Milwaukee Bucks. And all players who might see themselves fall from their current top spots in Milwaukee’s career statistic leaderboards.
The young Bucks have a lot to prove before they end up dethroning legends like Kareem and Ray, but it’s not inconceivable that young stars Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jabari Parker and Khris Middleton eventually rewrite much of the Bucks record books.
The thing most working in the young Bucks favor is time. Many Milwaukee legends did not have a lot of time with the Bucks before leaving for whatever reason. If ownership is as dedicated to this core as it seems they are, then Giannis, Jabari and Khris shouldn’t have those problems.

Nothing is certain of course–the point of this piece is to show what’s possible, not what’s going to happen or even what’s likely to happen. There are no sure things in the NBA, and there certainly aren’t any in Milwaukee.
That being said, some modern Bucks will have chances to climb Milwaukee’s leaderboards. There are several statistical totals that are in reach, should certain Bucks players stick around for long enough. We’ll go through a few of them here, although feel free to @ us on Twitter with any more you think of that aren’t included.
