Lake Effect's Mitch Teich speaks with Sports Contributor Howie Magner.

The NBA Finals are underway, and not surprisingly, they don’t involve the Milwaukee Bucks.  But there’s still some buzz about basketball around town.  The Bucks will have the second pick in the upcoming NBA draft, and the team’s new owners have made a big effort to connect with the city’s fan base.

"They seemed very very comfortable – not just with Milwaukee and Milwaukee fans, but with selling their vision of the Bucks to those people," says Magner.

Howie Magner is our regular sports contributor.  He talked with Mitch Teich about the owners’ “get-to-know-us” tour of Milwaukee last week.
