Sidney Moncrief is the third leading scorer and ranks second all-time in games played in Bucks history. He also wore jersey No. 4 in each of the 695 games he played for the Bucks - the same uniform number that 2006 first overall pick Andrew Bogut wore in college. Since Moncrief's number was retired to the Bradley Center rafters on January 6, 1990, Bogut needed to pick a new jersey number.

"[Jersey No.6] was a jersey thrown to me as a kid," said Bogut. "I was the last guy to show up basically and they threw me No. 6.

"That was the first jersey I wore competitively playing an all-around game of basketball. So I thought, `Why not go back to my roots?' I actually have tried that jersey on an international level. I wore it in the Olympics, too.

"So I think I really would have liked No.4, but there's no way I'm taking that from Sidney Moncrief. No.6 works for me."
