Herk Kohl Rumors

Milwaukee Bucks owner Herb Kohl is bullish on his team’s prospects as it prepares to start the 2010-’11 season Wednesday night in New Orleans. And the U.S. senator gives full credit to general manager John Hammond and coach Scott Skiles, who have helped turn around the Bucks’ fortunes since arriving in April 2008. “They did do a great job as everybody readily acknowledges,” Kohl said after the Bucks’ annual tip-off luncheon sponsored by the Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce. “They work very well together and they’re each very talented. They have brought us in just a couple years to a very high level of performance.”
