    BMO Harris Bradley Center

    Name change. It's a start.
    The BMO Harris naming rights component of the financial commitment is believed to be more than $1 million a year.

    In all, the additional revenue amounts to a significant financial shot in the arm for the Bradley Center and its major tenants, and is expected to provide a fiscal bridge of sorts between now and potential construction of a new multipurpose arena.

    "This should be enough to get us from today to a new arena," Marotta said.

    Hopefully they'll come up with something more unique. How about Miller Center?

    Awful name. It's a start.

    My honest prediction?

    They move the stadium near the 3rd Ward/Poto/Miller Park area and it becomes

    Potowatomi Arena..


    They need to place the new building near the highway in a semi-open area that's still near a populated city.

    Maybe you should change your name to "Iliketobewrong" because every time you post it's something negative, and it's usually wrong.

    Just like when you said that there was no chance of the Bucks getting a new place....Woops, nice try OC maybe next time.

    Why not actually trying to support the team for once, rather then just be "that guy" who only comes on here to rip the team.

    As if that area isn't bad enough with traffic already...

    Your right though they have to try and get some serious sponsorship for this place.

    I don't see a new areana. It's all bull **** until they start laying the bricks.

    What's the point of supporting a team that has no desire to be anything more than cellar dweller, a laughing stock if you will. They ownership/front office hasn't done anything in the last 10 years to give one the slightest chance of a future championship.

    you must be to young to remember that before 6 years ago the Brewers were awful. Yet some "crazy people" called fans still followed them.

    Sorry man I just see a ton of bandwagoning with this younger generation. If you win I'll pay attention to you, if you don't **** you. There's no real fanhood anymore, or very little of it. Christ what would have happened to the Packers if not for some real fans... and you wanna talk about "a laughing stock if you will."

    You can't compare the Bucks to the Brewers! The Brewer's actually drafted well (Fielder, Braun) which resulted in support, hope from the fans. They were sold to a owner that wants to win, built a new stadium. On the other hand the Bucks continuely draft poorly each and every year. I don't ever see this "new stadium" being built and Kohl will not sell this team. No I do not see a bright future with Brandon Jenings.

    That's what I'm hoping for

    You say this stuff like it's a mortal sin to be a..as you call it, "bandwagon fan"...

    Is OC Knight going to another team and saying it's his favorite or that it's his new team? I assume he will always be a Bucks fan. With that being said, he or anyone who calls themselves a Bucks fan can chew the hell out of this team. They suck plain and simple.

    What constitutes being a fan? Continually coming on PSD and telling everyone how the Bucks suck? ok... constructive.

    guess our view of what a fan is, is a little different.

    Ray Allen enjoyed playing in Milwaukee for the first seven years of his National Basketball Association career.

    And the current Miami Heat player has a word of warning for those in Milwaukee who might take the Bucks for granted.

    "I think they can support a team, but it's one thing to say if you can or cannot support a team," Allen said in a recent interview. "You've really got to put your best foot forward."

    The Bucks are playing in the aging BMO Harris Bradley Center, one of the oldest facilities in the league. They currently rank 27th among 30 league teams in attendance with an average of 13,904 fans, and that number was boosted by Saturday's sellout against the Heat (18,717 is capacity).

    A serious conversation has yet to get under way about a new arena or the long-term viability of Milwaukee as an NBA market. But Bucks owner Herb Kohl signaled his intention to jump-start the process at a news conference last year, when he talked about the need for a modern arena and community involvement.

    Naming rights were sold and corporate sponsors recruited for each of the four gates at the arena, through an effort coordinated by the Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce. The gates are sponsored by Kohl's Department Stores, Miller Lite, Northwestern Mutual and Potawatomi Bingo Casino.

    And in October a six-year lease agreement was reached between the Bradley Center and the Bucks, extending through Sept. 30, 2017.

    "You could do something great in this city if everybody put their best foot behind it," Allen said.

    Allen has played in Seattle, a city that lost its franchise to Oklahoma City and now has plans to build a new arena in an effort to lure an NBA team.

    "The mistake that the team, the city can make, is if you don't prepare for your future, you'll start looking around and saying it (the arena) is antiquated," Allen said. "And the team will have to move just to keep up or compete.

    "Then it will be too late. So around here you've got to start jumping ahead of the curve."
