The new Milwaukee Bucks owners Wes Edens and Marc Lasry had a meet-and-greet with fans at a Milwaukee sports bar on Thursday night to watch the Thunder, Spurs game and also gave fans the opportunity to ask questions to the new owners. On Friday I was listening to the Bill Michaels Show (Wisconsin state-wide sports radio show) and he had a caller who went to the meet-and-greet. The caller asked one of the new owners if he like the current Bucks colors and if he would ever change them. The new owner said he didn't like the current colors (green, red) and is thinking about changing them (didn't say what colors they would switch to or say anything about a logo change). The new owner said the the process to change colors would take about a year. Bill asked his listeners what colors they would change them to. Some said go back to purple, some said hunters green with blaze orange, some said camo colors (green, brown), and someone said tan/gold and black (similar to the Saints). I know this isn't official or even reported from a "reliable" source but I thought was interesting. Give your idea for their colors if you think you got a better idea. If you want to listen to the caller on the show here's a link of the podcast (start at 21:50): http://media.billmichaelssports.com/a/92599284/05-30-14-friday-hour-3.htm More on the meet-and-greet: http://www.jsonline.com/sports/bucks/new-milwaukee-bucks-owners-thank-fans-at-meet-and-greet-b99280394z1-261195221.html Update(5/30/2014): From Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel (http://www.jsonline.com/blogs/sports/261291881.html) Bucks co-owner Marc Lasry said Friday in a radio interview that he and co-owner Wesley Edens are strongly considering a change in the team's traditional jersey colors of red and green. Lasry did not say what a new color scheme would be but said, "We're definitely looking at doing that (making a change). It does need a little bit of help." Lasry also said in the 1250 WSSP interview that he is upset there is not more Bucks gear available around the city. "The thing that pisses me off is there's no gear," he said. "I wanted to get stuff for friends back home (in New York). I went yesterday to the Bradley Center to get gear. "There are a lot of things we need to do. You're going to see a whole bunch of changes." Update (3/30/2015): WED 4/1/2015 Halftime vs Chicago Bulls Looks like Wed will answer questions regarding Bucks' color speculation.
