NBA To Inspect Bucks' Slippery New Court At Bradley Center After Cancelled Game
Published October 28, 2013
SLIP SLIDIN' AWAY: In Toronto, Ryan Wolstat noted the entire Raptors coaching staff "had been complaining about the floor since well before the game started and the players were in full agreeance about the cancellation." Raptors G DeMar DeRozan said, "It was really bad. No exaggeration at all. I couldn't even cut to get open. It wasn't grip. When you tried to take off or cut, it would just give way. It was terrible. I was really scared." Raptors coach Dwane Casey: "It just was too dangerous. Our guys were slipping and falling, the last thing we need is to have a guy injured by slipping on a floor in a pre-season game" (TORONTO SUN, 10/26).
TASK AT HAND: The JOURNAL SENTINEL's Walker reported the Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce on Friday announced the "makeup and mission" of a new 48-member task force "with a focus on" the Bradley Center. Assisting in the effort "will be a group of MMAC directors and Milwaukee financial power brokers headed by" MMAC Chair Ted Kellner. He will be "assisted in leading the MMAC group" by former Bucyrus Int'l CEO Tim Sullivan and Johnson Controls President & CEO Alex Molinaroli (MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 10/26).
