Jon McGlocklin will always be known as the "Original Buck", since he was associated with the Milwaukee Bucks since their start in 1969. McGlocklin played for the Bucks for eight seasons, was the first member of the team to ever play in an All-Star game and was an important member of the 1971 World Championship team.
His "rainbow jumper" thrilled fans for years. Before playing for the Bucks, he was a standout at Indiana and played in the NBA for the Cincinnati Royals. McGlocklin stayed with the Bucks as a radio and TV announcer after his retirement. He was a founder of the MACC (Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer) Fund, which helps the battle against childhood cancer.
