Bucks Bango arrives in NYC on Harley to deliver All-Star bid

NEW YORK (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee Buck's mascot Bango was on hand in person in New York City to deliver the teams' proposal to host the NBA All-Star game in either 2022 or 2023.

Bango road up to the NBA headquarters on a Harley motorcycle to deliver the package to Peter Fink the NBA's Senior VP of Events and Attractions. The package included a bottle of beer and a note to NBA Commissioner Adam Silver that said "We look forward to the opportunity to toast with you in 2022/23." The note was signed by Bucks President Peter Feigin.\

The Bucks first confirmed their proposal for the All-Star Game at the beginning of February.

VISIT Milwaukee says the greater Milwaukee area has enough hotel rooms to fulfill the NBA's 26,000 requirement, although more 4-star accommodations would likely be needed.
