1. Terry Cummings
As successful as the Bucks were in the late 70s/early 80s, there roster at the time left an impression of a natural drop-off coming up near on the horizon as many of the team’s best players began to age. With the arrival of Terry Cummings, Milwaukee was able to prolong that success.
On a team packed with great creators, Cummings arrived as a third year player and took on the mantle of being his team’s primary scorer. In that department, Cummings replaced Marques Johnson with ease, ensuring that the Bucks didn’t miss a beat in their pursuit of glory.
Cummings went on to have an exceptionally long career in the NBA and was a long time member of the San Antonio Spurs, but saw his production drop off relatively sharply following his departure from Milwaukee.
During six seasons and 480 regular season games with the franchise, Cummings averaged 19.4 points, 7.8 rebounds and 2.3 assists, while shooting 48.4 percent from the field.
