    Kohl wants the Bucks to stay in the only city they’ve known, and despite iffy play and a crumbling home arena, Kohl has somehow made it work. Bucks owner Herb Kohl says he will consider adding to the team's ownership group and that it's "imperative" Milwaukee gets a new arena. In Milwaukee, mind you, because Kohl is not going to allow any potential co-owner any inclination of moving the Bucks away from Wisconsin. Commissioner David Stern said Kohl's announcement ensures that Milwaukee fans will continue to see NBA basketball "in a new state-of-the-art facility." With this announcement, Senator Kohl continues his mission: to assure continuity of ownership by broadening its ownership base, and assuring that the fans of Wisconsin will enjoy NBA basketball and other events in a new state-of-the-art facility.” Though the Bucks were put together by general manager John Hammond to compete for a lower-rung playoff spot, the team currently owns the worst record in the NBA. When former Seattle SuperSonics owner Howard Schultz decided he couldn’t be bothered to run an NBA team anymore, the Starbucks maven sold out the city that made him billions, hooking up with an ownership group from Oklahoma City to take over the SuperSonics. You know how that turned out.
