8. Ray Allen - 19.3

When you think of Ray Allen, it's hard not to picture those iconic purple jerseys with the deer front and center that Milwaukee Bucks have wanted to see return for what seems like an eternity.

In that jersey, Allen played five seasons with the Bucks after being selected in the opening round of the 1996 NBA Draft. Throughout his time with the Bucks, Allen quickly become a star, averaging an impressive 19.6 points, 4.6 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1.3 steals per game. It was clear that the Bucks had a special talent on their hands and that Allen could be a centerpiece for years to come.

The guard was the team's leading playoff scorer in that deep playoff run in 2001 that saw them fall just short of reaching the NBA Finals, where they would have faced Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O'Neale and the Los Angeles Lakers. It was heartbreaking, but not as heartbreaking as what was coming in the next few years.

Midway through the 2002-03 NBA season, the Bucks traded Ray Allen to the Seattle Supersonics in exchange for Gary Payton, who was far past his prime at that point. The decision set the team back for over a decade until they picked up a rather unknown Greek prospect in the first round during the 2013 NBA Draft.

Fans wish his time with the team would have been much, much longer, especially as he went on to win titles with the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat, but there is no denying the impact he had in Milwaukee.
