Throughout their history, the Milwaukee Bucks have donned their share of memorable jerseys, both for reasons good and bad.

Amidst the pain, sadness, triumph, and every other emotion this team has encountered over their existence, the jerseys have always stood out and have always been a topic of conversation among the fanbase. Following the team’s first title win in over 50 years, it seems only fitting to take a long look back at some of the best jerseys the team has worn over the past few decades.

More from Bucks All-Time Lists

According to my count, the Bucks have donned 10 different home uniforms and nine different road uniforms in franchise history. This does not include alternate jerseys, earned jerseys, and city edition jerseys, which all have been introduced in the past few years or so.

Let’s compare and contrast the top five best uniforms the Bucks have donned since 1968, including those just listed. Objectively, this is the way I see it from my perspective since being a lifelong and die-hard fan since 1980.

Milwaukee Bucks jersey ranking No 5. — 1994/95-2000/01, 2001/02-2005/06

Both the home and road uniforms for the Bucks were introduced, which included a new color scheme, a new logo, and a completely new rebranding, which was desperately needed.

The new colors included purple roads with large white numbers and letters mixed in with some green trim on the shorts and white homes with green numbers and letters outlined in green. The new color scheme and logo were an instant hit with fans during this time period of the early to mid-90s, as it offered a clean, new and fresh look for that time period. Although the look was baggy shorts and pants, which I never liked, and many people share the same sentiment, these do bring back nostalgic and cool memories of players like Todd Day, Lee Mayberry, and Vin Baker.

Most younger fans will probably remember Milwaukee’s former Big 3 donning these uniforms in the Eastern Conference finals in 2001. That would be Ray Allen, Glenn Robinson, and Sam Cassell, a group that was on the cusp of achieving great things but ultimately fell just short. This jersey is among the most liked for the fanbase, but it comes in at No. 5 on this ranking here.
