Here’s a nice story about the Milwaukee Bucks. One that doesn’t involve tanking, saving the team from mediocrity or even new Internet darling Mallory Edens. Former Bucks owner Herb Kohl, as a token of his appreciation, mailed all employees at the BMO Harris Bradley Center a thank you letter and check for $500.
Arena employees were expectedly taken aback and humbled by the generous handout. Usher Izeal Atkins had the following to say:
“I am not quick to shed tears. I sat there and shed tears for maybe five to 10 minutes because nobody just walks up gives you $500.”
“I’m kind of speechless still. It’s still kind of fresh in my head, but I thank you,” Atkins said.
Though there has not yet been any statement from Kohl on the generous gift to his former employees, WISN12 has a nice feature video on the story that can be seen here.
