David Stern: Things Are Fine in Milwaukee

NBA commissioner David Stern did not even wait for a question to be asked when approached by a reporter from Milwaukee before Wednesday night’s game between the Bucks and Oklahoma City Thunder at the Ford Center.

"Are you going to ask me about the arena issue?" said Stern.

Well, now that you mention it . . . 

"I don’t want to say I have concerns (about the Bucks and the arena situation)," he said. "I think the normal evolution of our league probably says at some point, there will be a new building in Milwaukee."

How urgent has the arena situation become in Milwaukee? "Only as urgent as Senator Kohl feels it is," said Stern.
