Post 1 of 2 – ADW

With my favorite team from my home town, the Milwaukee Bucks, leading the way and in first place in the NBA this season 2019-2020 I was curious about how this season was comparing to prior seasons.
In franchise history, they only have 1 lonely title and that was back in 1971!

Using a Dataset – via Basketball Reference
Season Totals by Player – All-time NBA statistics.
Also includes statistics for ABA + BAA players and seasons.
