Bob Dandridge was a fourth round draft pick by the Milwaukee Bucks in the 1969 NBA Draft. He was a key member of Bucks team that captured the 1971 NBA Championship. Today, the Bucks announced that they will retire his jersey #10 at a ceremony March 7 at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.
Dandridge averaged 18.6 points, 7.3 rebounds and 3.2 assists in nine seasons with the Bucks. He also played four seasons with the Washington Bullets.
Dandridge will be the eighth franchise player to have his number retired and the first since Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s No. 33 was retired in a ceremony on April 24, 1993.
The other Bucks to have their numbers retired are Oscar Robertson (1), Junior Bridgeman (2), Sidney Moncrief (4), Jon McGlocklin (14), Bob Lanier (16) and Brian Winters (32).
Dandridge was named an all-star four times while in Milwaukee and was named a starter in the 1975-76 contest.
He was also a part of the Bucks team that reached the NBA Finals in 1974 but lost to the Boston Celtics in a seven-game series.
When Dandridge was in Washington, he won an NBA title with the Bullets in 1978, teaming with Elvin Hayes and Wes Unseld to beat Seattle in seven games.
