Found July 09, 2014 on No Guts, No Glory:
Former Milwaukee Bucks owner Herb Kohl sold the francise after owning it for 29 years. Kohl is well respected by his peers and most importantly his employees. Kohl has been know to give his employees money just from the kindness of his heart. But I think this time, Kohl might have out-done himself. According to Gery Woelfel of the Journal Times, Kohl wrote out four and five figure checks to his long time employees. Some Bucks employees received $40,000 while others received nearly $100,000. And there were even some individuals who were given checks that one person close to the situation described as “life changing.” Well that is very good way to leave a team unlike someone that we will not mention on here.
