Glenn Robinson

One of the most consistent performers in the Milwaukee Buck’s history; Glenn Robinson was drafted with the 1st pick of the 1994 NBA Draft. His Rookie season did not disappoint with Glenn ‘Big Dog’ Robinson averaging 21.9 points, 6.4 rebounds and 2.5 assists a game.

Robinson could just about do it all on the offensive end, with an arsenal of old school mixed with the new moves. He was so offensively gifted that he averaged over 20 points a game for the Bucks in 7 of the 8 seasons he spent at a franchise. Robinson’s best scoring season came in 1998, when he averaged 23.4 points a game. Robinson’s best years in Milwaukee however, came when he teamed up with a young Ray Allen and Sam Cassell to form the Milwaukee ‘Big 3’. They made it to the Eastern conference finals in 2001, and Robinson would become a 2 x All-Star during that stretch. Robinson perhaps went under the radar a little during his NBA career, purely because he wasn’t a flashy player, he simply went out on the court and got the job done.

His time at Milwaukee came to an end in 2002, when he was traded to the Atlanta Hawks. He once again put up numbers of 20 + points pre game, and was then traded the following season to the 76ers, before again finding himself traded to the Spurs in his final season in the NBA. Fittingly he earned himself a Championship Ring as the Spurs would become the 2005 NBA Champions. Glenn Robinson had an extremely good career in the NBA, and will go down as one of the Bucks all time greats. All you have to do is look at his career stat line to know that ‘Big Dog’ was an icon of the game.
