Former Milwaukee Bucks player, broadcaster to cut workload

jon-mcglocklinLong-time Milwaukee Bucks’ TV broadcaster Jon McGlocklin will cut his workload in half this season, Pierce County Herald reported.

It was announced today that “Johnny Mac” will provide analysis on about 36 Bucks’ telecasts on Fox Sports Wisconsin, mostly at home – and former Bucks’ guard and assistant coach Sidney Moncrief will cover the other 36.

McGlocklin is now 70, and he asked for a reduction in his game broadcasts because he’s getting weary from all the travel.

McGlocklin joined the Bucks’ TV crew in 1976 after his retirement from the NBA.  He played for eight years with the Bucks, and was on Milwaukee’s only championship team in the 1970-71 season.

His No. 14 is retired – as is Moncrief’s No. 4.  Moncrief is now 55 years old. Jim Paschke returns  returns as the Bucks’ TV play-by-play man.  He’s in his 28th season with the team.

McGlocklin played 11 seasons in the NBA, 8 of them with Milwaukee Bucks. He was named NBA All-Star in 1969, averaging 19.6 ppg that season for the Bucks.

In 1970-1971 season, he won the NBA Championship with Milwaukee, which was led by Lew Alcindor (Kareem Abdul-Jabbar).

McGlocklin appeared in 792 NBA games, averaging 11.6 ppg, 2.9 apg, 2.4 rpg in 26.4 mpg.
