I think we're not being disrespectful when we say that the Milwaukee Bucks aren't exactly the most successful franchise in NBA history. While they've had some of the greatest players ever - such as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, they haven't exactly won many titles.
That's why, now that Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton, and Jrue Holiday helped them put an end to their decades-long drought, the future finally seems bright for a once-thriving team in the Association.
The Bucks aren't exactly used to playing in the NBA Finals but we can be sure that they will be back at this stage pretty soon. In the following paragraphs, we'll walk you through every single one of their titles thus far.
NBA: Every Title In Milwaukee Bucks History
Throughout their history, the Milwaukee Bucks have only made it to 3 NBA Finals. They hadn't reached this stage since 1974 and they owned one of the longest Finals droughts in the whole Association.
1971 NBA Finals: The first time the Milwaukee Bucks made it to the biggest stage came thanks to Lew Alcindor (later known as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar) and Oscar Robertson. They teamed up to completely turn around this franchise and lead them to a 4-0 win over the Washington Bullets, with Alcindor winning Finals MVP.
1974 NBA Finals: Just three years later, the Bucks were back at the NBA Finals but they couldn't find the same success. This time, they lost to the almighty Boston Celtics in 7 games, with John Havlicek winning Finals MVP.
2021 NBA Finals: And after decades of waiting, the Bucks once again reached this stage, this time to face the Phoenix Suns. With Giannis Antetokounmpo playing his heart out and winning Finals MVP, they managed to get their second title in franchise history.
