The linchpin to Gov. Scott Walker's proposal to invest $220 million in state bonds to help build a new, multipurpose arena in downtown Milwaukee is last year's agreement between the National Basketball Association and Turner Broadcasting and the Walt Disney Co., which owns ABC and ESPN. The dramatic increase in the rights deals between the league and the broadcasting companies ensured franchises in the league that revenue would at least double over the nine-year term of the deal. That means both teams and their players are in line for fatter bottom lines and bigger paychecks. Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says any deal from the state to help pay for a new Milwaukee Bucks arena will also likely have to include contributions from the city and county. Walker spoke about the issue on Wednesday after he announced a plan to have the state use $200 million in bonds to help pay for the arena. His proposal met with some resistance from state lawmakers who say the city of Milwaukee and Milwaukee County should also have to chip in. Walker says he doesn't object to that and it's likely to be a part of whatever passes the Legislature. USA Today Sports

The "Greek Freak" said he would come up with a plan. "We're going to see what we're going to do," he said of consulting with his brother. "I'm going to try to do something crazy, something fancy. Are you sure I cannot do a layup?" Antetokounmpo, the 6-foot-11 Bucks phenom, is expected to be named Wednesday to the international team for the Rising Stars Challenge, a game scheduled Feb. 13. That game will feature rookies and second-year players and will have a new format, with 10 international players going against 10 USA-based players. The dunk format will be a two-round event, and competitors will get three chances to complete a dunk in both rounds. Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
