Silver on Milwaukee: Eerily Familiar.

This just in. The NBA doesn't like an arena.

Incoming NBA commissioner Adam Silver is throwing down the gauntlet in Milwaukee. Stop me if you've heard this same story in other cities. Apparently, their arena just isn't good enough.

Rich Kirchen reports on Silver's comments in Bizjournals.com, which you can read by clicking here. Here are some excerpts.

"One obvious issue we all have to deal with is we need a new arena in Milwaukee," said Adam Silver, deputy National Basketball Association commissioner, speaking of the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

Silver said he supports the efforts of Kohl and the Bucks to keep the team viable and in Milwaukee. Silver, in response to a question from moderator, Matt Parlow of Marquette University, said Kohl's ownership of the Bucks is one of the team's great strengths and that Kohl is committed to keeping the team in Milwaukee.

Do not even think about getting excited about this at this stage in the game. I believe the NBA will do all it can to remain in Milwaukee. Anything could happen, but keep recent history in mind. I still believe expansion is the best route for us.
