Sidney Moncrief

Milwaukee Bucks
6-4 195 Guard

Gutsy... Gave more than he probably should have in playoffs, when he was suffering from very sore left heel... Sustained injury in first-round game against Nets... Soul and inspiration of the Bucks, he rallied them past Sixers in conference semis, but could do nothing to avert Celtics' seep in finals... Bright, articulate team leader... Will make $784,000 this season, down $100,000 from last year... Collects $1.42 million in deferred payments, beginning in 1987... Bucks drafted him No. 5 overall in 1979, out of Arkansas... Can't find anything bad to say about him, except that his knees and his heel have betrayed him and could pose serious problems as he grows older... Excellent defensive player.
