    His nickname was 'Sid the Squid.'
    He was part of a Bucks team that struggled in their playoff performances, which cost him a chance to play in an NBA Finals.
    Despite playing the majority of his career in Milwaukee, he elected to spend his final season in Atlanta.
    He was relegated to bench duties during his lone season with the Hawks.
    He recorded a 4-24 record in his lone season as the head coach for the University of Arkansas-Little Rock, which played a role in his dismissal (2000).
    He was credited with renewing interest in the Arkansas men's basketball program.
    He was the first player in NBA history to win the Defensive Player of the Year Award.
    He holds the Bucks franchise records in career free throws and career free throw attempts.
    His hard nosed defensive style of play earned him the respect of fellow contemporaries like Michael Jordan and Larry Bird.
    Despite not playing on a championship team, he was considered one of greatest shooting guards of his time by basketball pundits.
