How would the current Milwaukee Bucks side fare, against the franchise’s best teams since the turn of the century?

Since the turn of the century, the Milwaukee Bucks have had three super-teams teams finish above 0.500.

The 2000-01 Ray Allen-led Milwaukee Bucks (also spilling into the 2002-03 season with 42 wins) which statistically speaking, is still the finest Bucks team since the 80s. They finished the season with a record of 52-30 and made it all the way to the Eastern Conference finals, only to be knocked off by the Allen Iverson starring Philadelphia 76ers.

The 2009-10 “Fear the Deer” Bucks side battled their way to 46-36 season and a close seven game, first round exit to the Atlanta Hawks. Save for a certain injury to Andrew Bogut, this side had endless potential and could have gone on to bigger and better things.

Lastly and most recently, the 2016-17 Bucks group, led by Giannis Antetokounmpo, finished the season like a freight train to record a record of 42-40, only to lose in six games to the Toronto Raptors.

Although Bucks fans haven’t had too much to cheer about in recent years, these three teams represent the brightest lights of a rather gloomy 17 years.

With that in mind, let’s a take closer look at how these three teams compare and who were the best players among them all.
