And-Ones: Bucks Arena, Mavs, Huestis

The $500MM plan to fund a new Bucks arena has enough votes to pass the Wisconsin State Assembly on Tuesday, Republican Majority Leader Jim Steineke said, according to Scott Bauer of the Associated Press. Under the proposal, half of the cost would initially be paid by state and local taxpayers and the other $250MM would come from current and former Bucks owners, Bauer continues. If approved without any changes by the Assembly, the bill would then head to Governor Scott Walker for his consideration, Bauer adds.

    $250 million is the same amount of money Wisconsin just cut from their university system. Priorities are totally in line, obvi.

      It’s a pattern we’ve seen all too often in sports. Owners and/or the league threaten to move the team unless they get a shiny new arena/stadium and force the hand of the legislators/citizens.
