Outgoing Bucks Owner Herb Kohl Gives Every Arena Employee $500 as a Thank-You
No one will ever accuse the Milwaukee Bucks of being the best-run franchise in the NBA, but that doesn’t mean that their owner, former U.S. Senator Herb Kohl, isn’t a decent dude.
After selling the team for $550 million, he decided to thank the people that made the franchise so valuable. Not the execs, or even the players, but the Bradley Center (the Bucks’ arena) workers, many of whom may not have even been direct employees of his.
Of course, when you’re able to unload the Bucks for $550 million, you’re sort of playing with the house’s money, but let’s give credit where credit is due: giving every Bradley Center employee a $500 check is a very kind act.
Less remarkable but probably equally kind, every employee, along with the $500 check, received a letter of gratitude from the former Bucks owner.
Of course, the fans are probably wondering where their check is for having to watch the Bucks play basketball year after year. Unfortunately, that check is probably not in the mail, folks.
