Could a Milwaukee Bucks legend be the boost the team needs?

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- To say the Milwaukee Bucks have had a tough season may be putting it kindly. The team has won just 11 games this season -- losing 46 games. The Bucks are currently ranked last in the Central Division. Meanwhile, attendance is low, there has been talk of a new arena for downtown Milwaukee, and also talk of moving the franchise. Could a Milwaukee Bucks legend be the boost the team needs?

Saturday, March 1st was Junior Bridgeman bobblehead night. He brought success to the team on the court back in the 1970s and 1980s -- and fans are hopeful he will bring that same success to the franchise as an investor.

At the BMO Harris Bradley Center on Saturday, there was an unusual buzz, as fans hoped to meet a Bucks legend.

"I remember when he was on the team that won 20 games in a row," Bucks season ticket holder Diane James said.

Bridgeman signed autographs, shook hands and answered questions from fans -- all hopeful he will invest in the team.

"He's a self-made man. He knows business and that's what the Bucks need right now," season ticket holder John Pecunia said.

Everyone wants to know -- will Bridgeman be an investor in the franchise? It's a question he was hesitant to answer on Saturday.

"I can't even tough it probably without having my tongue cut out," Bridgeman said.

He has found success in the restaurant business following his basetball career, and is a current investor in the Sacramento Kings.

"It's been a different experience, different journey, seeing the game on this side," Bridgeman said.

While Bridgeman would not say definitively whether he would once again be a part of the Bucks franchise, but did say his heart is still very much with the team.

"You always hope you make good business decisions, but obviously there is a lot of emotion involved in this one," Bridgeman said.

"It would be great. It would be great," James said.

"I think it's just a matter of going through that lull to get that exciting, productive product on the floor again," Bridgeman said.

Bridgeman says he and Bucks owner Herb Kohl talk business a lot -- and on Saturday morning, the two had breakfast together.
