History

Early years

The Milwaukee Bucks were formed in January 1968 when the NBA awarded a franchise to Milwaukee Professional Sports and Services, Inc. (Milwaukee Pro), a group headed by Wesley Pavalon and Marvin Fishman. In October, the Bucks played their first NBA regular season game against the Chicago Bulls before a Milwaukee Arena crowd of 8,467. Their first victory came in their 6th game as the Bucks beat the Detroit Pistons 134–118; they would win only 26 more games in their first year.

But their record earned them a coin flip between them and the Phoenix Suns to see who would get Lew Alcindor, later Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, in the 1968-69 NBA season. The Bucks won the coin flip and got their man, and instantly the Bucks became contenders. In only their second season the Bucks made the playoffs and Alcindor was named rookie of the year.

The following season, the final piece of the Bucks' championship puzzle came when superstar Oscar Robertson, known as "the Big O," joined the team, and in only their third season the Bucks won 66 games. On April 30, 1971, the Bucks won Game 4 of the finals over the Baltimore Bullets in Milwaukee, 118–106, to sweep and clinch the NBA Championship. By winning the title in only their third season, the Bucks became the fastest expansion team in any of the four major leagues to win a world championship.

In 1972, the Los Angeles Lakers had their record 33-game winning streak snapped by the Bucks during a nationally televised game; in 1973 the Bucks recorded their third consecutive 60-win season, the first NBA team to do so. One year later, the Bucks were back in the 1974 NBA Finals against the Boston Celtics. In Game 6 of the series, Jabbar made a patented "sky hook" shot to end a classic double-overtime victory for the Bucks. The Bucks lost Game 7 and the series to the Celtics. After the 1974-75 NBA season, the Bucks pulled a mega-trade by sending Jabbar to the Lakers for Elmore Smith, Junior Bridgeman, Brian Winters and David Meyers.

After the mega-deal, the Bucks brought with them several seasons in transition, but most of these players would bear fruit. After being sold to cable television executive Jim Fitzgerald in 1977, the Bucks would enter in another era of greatness. It began with coach Don Nelson. In the 1977 draft, the Bucks drafted in Marques Johnson, Kent Benson, and Mark Grunfeld. Johnson would become a staple in the Bucks for years to come. Rookie Sidney Moncrief made his debut in 1979.

In 1979, the Bucks also brought in veteran center Bob Lanier to fill in the hole left by the departure of Jabbar. They then won the Midwest Division title in 1980. After losing to Seattle in the semi-finals, the Bucks moved to the Eastern Conference's Central Division. There, they would win 6 straight division titles and have .500 seasons for the next 11 years. Within those years, the Bucks became perennial Eastern Conference contenders, primarily due to the strong play of Moncrief, Paul Pressey, Craig Hodges and the arrival of Terry Cummings, Ricky Pierce and Jack Sikma from trades with the Los Angeles Clippers and Seattle respectively. Other notable players who played for the Bucks in this era included Larry Krystkowiak, Randy Breuer and Paul Mokeski.

During the 1980's the Bucks were one of the most successful basketball teams in the league. Only three teams had winning records throughout the 80s -- the Celtics, the Lakers and the Bucks. However they were perennially stymied by the Philadelphia 76ers and Boston Celtics in post-season: starting in 1980-81 season the Bucks were eliminated by either the Sixers or the Celtics for 7 consecutive seasons, including twice in 7-game series. On the occasions in which they did beat one of the two teams they would often lose to the other as in 1982-83 when they swept the Celtics only to lose the Sixers and in 1985-86 when they beat the Sixers only to be swept by the Celtics (see below section for season by season playoff recap).

In 1985, Milwaukee businessman (and now U.S. Senator) Herb Kohl bought the Bucks after fears that out-of-town investors could buy the team and move it out of Milwaukee. (In 2003, after considering selling the team, Kohl announced that he had decided against selling the Bucks to Michael Jordan and would "continue to own them, improve them and commit them to remaining in Wisconsin.")

In the 1988-89 season, after 20 years at the 11,052-seat MECCA (Milwaukee Arena, now U.S. Cellular Arena), the Bucks moved into the new 18,700-seat Bradley Center, located directly across the street from the MECCA in downtown Milwaukee. The Bradley Center was one of the first arenas in the country to be built with luxury suites.

The Bucks had two high lottery picks in a row in the early 1990's that allowed them to get two high-caliber offensive players. In the 1993 NBA Draft, Milwaukee selected power forward Vin Baker. The following season the Bucks obtained small forward and college standout Glenn Robinson with the first selection in the 1994 NBA Draft. From the 1994-95 season to the 1996-97 season, the Bucks were led by the strong offensive play of both Robinson and Baker. Baker was traded to the Seattle Sonics in a three-team deal that brought Terrell Brandon and Tyrone Hill to Milwaukee following the 1996-97 season. This marked the start of the climb of the Bucks towards their eventual playoff success. The 1993 NBA Draft took place on 30 June 1993 in Auburn Hills, Michigan. ...

With the steady addition of talent such as Ray Allen, Tim Thomas, and Sam Cassell, as well as the hiring of head coach George Karl, the Bucks grew to become an elite team in the Eastern Conference, winning the Central Division title in 2001.

Behind the strong encouragement of George Karl, the Bucks acquired Anthony Mason at the beginning of the 2001-2002 season. On paper this made the Bucks the team to beat in the Eastern Conference for the 2001-02 season. On the court and off, however, team chemistry was destroyed by the presence of Mason. The Bucks, who at the season's midway point were the number four seed in the Eastern Conference, began an unthinkable free-fall that was culminated with a loss to Detroit on the final night of the season that eliminated the Bucks from NBA playoff contention. The resulting fallout caused tension between the team's three stars and coach, resulting in the eventual trades of Glenn Robinson to Atlanta (for Toni Kukoc and a first-round draft pick that they used to select T.J. Ford). Anthony George Douglas Mason (born December 14, 1966 in Miami, Florida) is a former NBA basketball player. ...

In the midst of the 2002-03 season, the Bucks traded their superstar Ray Allen and backup Ronald "Flip" Murray to the Seattle SuperSonics for Gary Payton and Desmond Mason. The trade allowed for increased playing time for Michael Redd, and with Gary Payton in the backcourt, the Bucks finished the season with a 42–40 record and made the playoffs; however, the Bucks lost in the first round to the New Jersey Nets. Sam Cassell & Ervin Johnson were traded to Minnesota (for Joe Smith). And Payton would leave in free agency following the season.

Having been in hurt in the previous season, point guard T.J. Ford would miss the entire 2004-05 season. The Bucks had a disappointing season ending with a 30–52 record, however, strong play by young stars Maurice Williams and Michael Redd was encouraging. Due to their poor record the Bucks were placed in the NBA Draft Lottery. Despite only having a 6% chance for the first selection in the lottery, the Bucks won the first pick for the 2005 NBA Draft, which was used to select Andrew Bogut of Australia and the University of Utah. This luck would raise expectations for the coming season, as the team anticipated the return of T.J.

After the 2005-06 season, the Bucks made substantial changes to their roster, trading several of their key players. The Bucks traded starting point guard T.J.

The beginning of the 2006-07 season gave Bucks' fans high hopes. The Bucks had a fantastic December going 11–6, but soon after, starters Michael Redd, Charlie Villanueva, and Moe Williams suffered key injuries. This left Andrew Bogut as the only remaining starting player from the anticipated lineup for the beginning of the season for much of January, with Bobby Simmons already sidelined for the season. Their record suffered as a result of these injuries, with the team recording only 2 wins in the month of January. In February the Bucks lost a crucial game to the Boston Celtics who were riding a franchise long 18-game losing streak. The Bucks' struggles continued with more injuries until they fired head coach Terry Stotts after losing their 41st game of the season. During the final weeks of the season, 4 out of the 5 planned starters for the season, Bogut, Villanueva, Simmons, and Redd, were all on the injured list for the rest of the year.
