The future commissioner of the NBA, Adam Silver, had some thoughts that should concern Milwaukee Bucks fans in the era of city-hopping, especially given how thirsty Seattle is.
The Bradley Center, where the Bucks play ball, isn't up to snuff, according to Silver.
One obvious issue we all have to deal with is we need a new arena in Milwaukee,” said Adam Silver, deputy National commissioner, speaking of the BMO Harris Bradley Center….
“At the end of the day compared to other modern arenas in the league, this arena is a few hundred thousand square feet too small,” Silver said. “It doesn’t have the sort of back-of-house space you need, doesn’t have the kinds of amenities we need.
“It doesn’t have the right sort of upper bowl/lower bowl (seating) configuration for the teams frankly that Milwaukee wants to compete against,” he said.
According to PBT, the Bucks leased out the Bradley Center until 2017, at which point they'll either have to renovate or build a new facility. Will taxpayers in Milwaukee fork over the cash if someone makes a better offer?
