The Milwaukee Bucks were only formed when the NBA awarded a franchise to Milwaukee Professional Sports and Services Inc (Milwaukee pro) in January 1968. The Milwaukee Bucks used to play in the smallest arena in the NBA league, but the city did not want to build a new one. Herb Kohl, a Milwaukee business man bought The Milwaukee Bucks due to the fear that out of town investors would buy the team and move it out of Milwaukee. Before the completion of the transaction, a new arena was donated to the team called the Bradley Center. In 2003 Kohl considered selling The Milwaukee Bucks to basketball ace Michael Jordan. He later decided not to sell The Milwaukee Bucks and pledged his alliance and commitment to keep the team firmly in Wisconsin.
