Kohl says he's not ready to write off Bucks

Milwaukee Bucks' owner Herb Kohl says he's not ready to write off the season yet, even though he's disappointed with the 19-and-34 record.

That was the Bucks' same record at this time a year ago, a couple weeks before Kohl fired coach Terry Stotts and replaced him with Larry Krystkowiak.

Now, Kohl says he's not ready yet to judge the coach and General Manager Larry Harris, who's in the final year of his contract.

Kohl also said Krystkowiak's recent remarks that the Bucks were being destroyed by personal agendas were over-blown and we won't hear that from him again.

With the All-Star break, the Bucks are off until next Wednesday night when they host Detroit.

They're now four games behind Philadelphia for the eighth and final playoff spot in the NBA's Eastern Conference and Kohl says his goal is for the Bucks to make the post-season.

Meanwhile, attendance at Bucks' home games is down six-percent from a year ago.

They've averaged almost 15,500 thousand fans per contest, despite big discounts on upper-level seats.

Kohl blames the decline on both on the rough winter and the team's performance.
