This is actually old hat, but it’s the first I’ve heard of the matter. The Bucks will officially have competition in Milwaukee, as an ABA franchise known as the Milwaukee Blast is coming to town. The team will reportedly play at Wisconsin Lutheran College, and the season begins November 4th. I’m all for more basketball in the city, but is Milwaukee ready to support a second team?
(JEREMY NOTE ON ABA TEAM: Marshall Williams is the head coach. So … if you’re familiar with his work, this isn’t exactly a surefire operation destined for great success.)
