Bucks eventually find the EASY button at Staples
Last night I went to Staples Center to see the Milwaukee Bucks play the L.A. Clippers (the neglected step-child of the building they share with the Lakers) It was a nice arena, though very much like a spaceship. They have three levels of luxury boxes which no doubt are filled during Kobe's games. The crowd was very light - the place looked like Bradley Center for a Marquette game over winter break. In fact, as the Bucks came back from a 13 point halftime deficit by outscoring the Clips 51 -29 in the second half, the Bucks' fans made themselves heard. I found myself wondering, as I looked around and saw a lot of green shirts and purple jerseys, are all these folks transplanted Bucks fans? Or somewhere along the line did they jump on the very sparsely populated Bucks' bandwagon? There was quite an Asian contingent supporting Yi, so maybe the Bucks international star is rising...
