Joe Johnson might make the 3-on-3 hall of fame.

i never saw dandridge play but from a sheer resume deal middleton looks like he can achieve his bar

As much as I appreciate Bobby D, he shouldn't have made it - but he was the critical 3rd piece for 2 different championship teams (Bucks with Lew and O and Washington with Unseld and Hayes).

Happy 30th birthday Khris. For his style of play he just hit his prime in my opinion.

I have been denied for too long, so allow me a few sentences about Midds. We saw it last season (especially in the playoffs), but his handle and playmaking have leveled up. He's never going to kill people with his handle, but he's notably better, and he's much smarter about recognizing danger. Those midcourt traps that used to kill him don't work nearly as much these days, because Khris sees it coming and quickly finds the open guy.

P.S. Bumping this thread reminds me of how a long-time poster quit the forum during a title run rather than live in a world where Khris was widely recognized as great. What a time to be alive.

I’ve come around on Middleton big time, but the results of this poll are absolute insanity. You can’t account for Middleton’s career without including the gravity that Giannis provides. I can’t even imagine a better fit alongside Giannis than a prime Ray.

Concurrently, without Giannis i think Middleton’s impact is around Michael Redd level. And I don’t mean that as an insult. Redd was better than most give him credit for considering the absolute trash he played with in his prime years.

I think Middleton is a better defender and passer than Redd pretty easily though. Middleton can also operate better in the mid range and and the post one on one than Redd.

I think the poll's question is pretty self explanatory. Who's had a better Bucks career? That's easily Khris. A better overall career would be easily Ray.

Giannis had such a legendary Finals that Khris going for 24-5-6 didn't even register.

This has zero relevance to the question being asked in the poll. Middleton will likely be top 3 in games played for the franchise by the end of this year, #1 in 3 Ptrs Made, #8 in assists, he'll crack the top 5 in steals, #9 in points scored, AND he has a ring. Ray Allen's case here boils down to "two more all-star appearances." That doesn't cut it.

Midds passed the 10,000 career points mark - 165 with Detroit. He needs 149 points to get 10,000 with Milwaukee.

Probably within the next 8-10 games of December. Maybe Dec 14th @ Boston or Dec 16th Home vs Indy.

Khris is a substantially better basketball player than Redd ever was. Redd was likely a better scorer overall...and that's it. Defense, rebounding, passing, and general basketball IQ all go to Khris. I won't discount that Redd played with terrible talent, but regardless it still is what it is that all he really cared about/excelled at was ppgz (which we needed those years). Maybe it's different on another team, but we don't know that.

Ray is undoubtedly a better shooter, probably overall scorer, and had an amazing (HOF) career...mostly once he left Milwaukee. Like others, I take the poll question as who had the best career accolades specifically with the Bucks, as opposed to overall or who had more talent. I think Khris takes that pretty easily.
