This week, Milwaukee Bucks president Peter Feigin chose the scare-tactic negotiating ploy when telling Wisconsin legislators why they should approve $250 million in funding for a new Bucks arena — if they don’t the team will be sold back to the league and moved to “Seattle or Las Vegas.”
That comment understandably put Bucks fans on edge.
Then on Tuesday Bucks point guard Michael Carter-Williams tweeted this:
He was innocently talking about playing for the Bucks Summer League team, which starts play in Las Vegas on Friday. But that’s not how some Bucks fans saw it.
Carter Williams realized his mistake and tweeted:
To be fair Bucks fans, if the arena deal does fall through Adam Silver will look for other options to keep the team in Milwaukee first (he was one of the guys behind the efforts to give Sacramento a chance to keep it’s team, and it was farther down the road than Milwaukee right now).
After that, I’d be a lot more concerned about Seattle than Vegas.
