Bob Dandridge is one of the great unsung players in league history. On two different occasions he was an important member of championship teams. Coming from small Norfolk State did not help put Dandridge on the basketball map as he was only drafted in the fourth round of the 1969 draft but quickly showed he belonged. In 1971 he teamed with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Oscar Robertson to lead the upstart Milwaukee Bucks to a championship over the Baltimore Bullets. Of course Jabbar and Robertson received most of the attention for this title but as both would tell you they would not have got there without Dandridge’s contributions. Dandridge did the same thing later in his career. Traded to those same Bullets he had beaten, Dandridge became a key member of back to back final appearances in 78 and 79. In 78 the Bullets beat the Sonics and in 79 they lost a hard fought series. Veterans and fellow front court mates Elvin Hayes and Wes Unseld received most of the accolades for the Bullets run. In both series and during his whole career Dandridge was a silent assassin. His dunk in game 7 of the first Seattle series sealed the victory for the Bullets.
