Milwaukee Bucks who would have thrived in their prime – Jason Terry
Jason Terry is one of the most underrated players of the 2000s. The guard is primarily known for his time with the Dallas Mavericks, where he won a Sixth Man of the Year award and a title back in 2011, but he played for various other teams in his career, including the Milwaukee Bucks, and had a tremendous 19-year NBA career.
Terry spent two seasons with the Bucks from 2016-18. Given that he was 39 and 40 years old in those seasons, he was not the player he once was. The veteran two-guard averaged 3.8 points in 17.4 minutes per contest. Terry was primarily there to be a veteran presence for the young guys, as Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton, and others were still fairly young at that point.
Prime Terry would have formed a lethal Big 3 alongside the Greek Freak and Middleton that would have been incredible offensively. For a solid 13 years, Terry was a bucket, having shown a knack for scoring the ball from anywhere on the floor, but especially from three. His ability to score and shoot the ball would have made “JET” the perfect complementary piece in his prime.
