Subject WTH? Milwaukee Bucks won NBA Championship in 3rd year!
Poster Handle DCB33
Post Content
I was very surprised to research a little and see the Bucks
won the NBA Title in 1971 as a 3rd year expansion team.

That is crazy...I was 16 at the time and a fan
of the "big 3 sports" but my long term memory is shot.

They had a "BIG 4" in Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Oscar Robertson, Bobby Dandridge
and Jon McGlocklin and 1 more averaging in double figures.

I copied their main stats for anyone who wants to join me on a stroll down memory lane.

The Bucks won 27 games in their expansion year...56 games in year 2...
and 66 games in year 3 and rolled to the NBA Championship ...4-1...4-1 and 4-0.

I had to look up this "miracle" team.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar 31.7 PPG - 16.0 RB - 3.3 AST

Oscar Robertson 19.4 PPG - 5.7 RB - 8.2 AST

Bob Dandridge 18.4 PPG - 8.0 RB - 3.5 AST

Jon McGlocklin 15.8 PPG - 2.7 RB - 3.7 AST

Greg Smith 11.7 PPG - 7.2 RB - 2.8 AST

Bob Boozer 9.1 PPG - 5.4 RB - 1.6 AST

Lucius Allen 7.1 PPG - 2.5 RB - 2-6 AST

McCoy McElmore 4.7 PPG - 3.8 RB - 1.1 AST

Dick Cunningham (B/U C) 2.6 PPG - 3.4 RB - 0.6 AST
