Jeff Webb

Needless to say, the timing of Jeff Webb‘s Bucks stint couldn’t have been any better.

After going undrafted in the 1970 NBA Draft, Webb latched on with the Bucks as a free agent before the start of their legendary 1970-71 championship run. While playing time was far from guaranteed for the 6’4″ reserve guard, the West Milwaukee native had a front row seat in what stands as the best Bucks season to this point.

Not for nothing, but Webb did manage to make appearances at the end of games throughout the regular season and all the way through the playoffs, including in Game 4 of the 1971 NBA Finals that helped the Bucks clinch their sweep over the Baltimore Bullets to win their lone title in team history.

Webb’s run with the Bucks ended midway through the following season as they looked to defend their title and he latched on with the Phoenix Suns for the rest of the year before being waived by them before the start of the 1972-73 campaign.

In total, Webb averaged 2 points on 31.9 percent shooting from the field, 0.9 rebounds and 0.5 assists across 409 total minutes and 48 appearances over his one-and-a-half years with the Bucks.
