2001–02 Milwaukee Bucks season

The 2001–02 NBA season was the Bucks' 34th season in the National Basketball Association.[1] During the offseason, the Bucks signed free agent Anthony Mason to shore up their front line. After advancing to the Eastern Conference Finals last year, the Bucks got off to a solid start winning nine of their first ten games, then posted an 8-game winning streak with a division-leading record of 26–13 as of January 21. Scoring leader Ray Allen was selected for the 2002 NBA All-Star Game. At midseason, the team signed free agent Greg Anthony, who was released by the Chicago Bulls. However, with a 35–25 record as of March 6, the Bucks would struggle and proceed to lose 16 of their final 22 games and miss the playoffs, finishing fifth in the Central Division with a 41–41 record, thanks to an embarrassing 123–89 road loss to the Detroit Pistons to close out the season. This was one of the biggest late-season collapses for a team that was contending for a Division title in March.[2] Following the season, Glenn Robinson was traded to the Atlanta Hawks,[3] and Anthony retired.
