Milwaukee Bucks Tickets for Sale
Despite high hopes for a phenomenal 2015-2016 season, the Milwaukee Bucks finished with a 33-49 record, enough for 12th in the Eastern Conference. With another season under their belt, the young roster looks promising along with the Bucks offseason acquisitions Matthew Dellavedova, Jason Terry, Mirza Teletovic and Thon Maker. What these new players bring is more shooting, which was clear they were lacking last season. It will also be interesting to track the development of Giannis Antetokounmpo, who came on strong towards the end of last season and was able to boost their numbers in a consistent manner. If head coach Jason Kidd can couple this new shooting potential with the defensive prowess this team showed two seasons ago, they could certainly make some waves in the Central Division this year.
Although Milwaukee fans were disappointed with the outcome of their team last season, this is a new year and with that, a bright new outlook on the Bucks’ potential moving forward. Fans, be sure to secure your Milwaukee Bucks tickets early in the season so that you don’t miss out on all the fun and exciting on-court action.
The Milwaukee Bucks began playing professional basketball in 1968. Most expected the team to struggle for a few years, as this is the standard for all new franchises. However, the club drafted Lew Alcindor in its second season and led the Bucks to the NBA Finals in his second season, giving the franchise its only championship to date. He and Oscar Robertson were an unstoppable pair and the club finished first in the Midwest Division in four consecutive seasons.
It took a while for the Bucks to regroup after Lew Alcindor changed his name to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and forced Milwaukee to trade him. By the 1980s the front office has assembled a roster built around Sidney Moncrief, Terry Cummings, Ricky Pierce, and Jack Sikma. This team won seven consecutive division titles playing Don Nelson’s brand of purely offensive basketball.
The 1990s were not nearly as good to the fans, but the team began playing winning basketball again after managing to put a roster together around Glen Robinson, Ray Allen, and Sam Cassell. At this trio’s best, they reached the conference finals. They could not take down the Philadelphia 76ers, which ultimately led to the end of the Robinson-Allen-Cassell era.
Milwaukee has been searching for its next superstar ever since. Michael Redd could not get the job done despite proving to be a great perimeter player. Andrew Bogut had been developing into a great big man, but constant injuries derailed his time in the Bucks uniform. Now it appears point guard Brandon Jennings is the first part of the next great era for the franchise. Jennings has been matched with Monta Ellis and it appears the Bucks have a backcourt that will soon rank among the very best in the NBA. All they need to do is figure out the front court and this team can go back to winning division titles.
