The Bucks are a professional basketball team based out of Milwaukee. The franchise is part of the Eastern Conference Central Division, and they play their matches at Fiserv Forum.

Milwaukee Bucks Brief History

This team was founded back in 1968 as an NBA expansion franchise.

The Bucks have one single championship, back in 1971, when they managed to sweep the Baltimore Bullets in four games, in what it was just their third season in the league.

The franchise managed to qualify for the postseason in each of the following three seasons, including a 1974 NBA Finals appearance.

Oscar Robertson retired after this season, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar went on to play for the Lakers.

These departures, however, didn’t seem to have weakened the team, and they acquired Junior Bridgeman, Marques Johnson, and Sidney Moncrief.

And with the help of these players, the Bucks began a 12-season streak of continuous playoff appearances.
