Bucks Statement Regarding John Henson

We’re aware of the situation John encountered yesterday and have been in close contact with him regarding the details. It’s an incredibly upsetting and frustrating experience for anyone to go through and the entire Bucks family supports him.

We appreciate the store owner reaching out to apologize and meet with John in person. It’s important to us that he sees the kind of character John Henson has. John is a terrific teammate and player, and prides himself on being a good role model in the Milwaukee community.

While this illustrates a very real issue in our society, we know this incident isn’t reflective of the entire Milwaukee community. John is very appreciative of the support he has received from fans and community members across the state, and we’re all looking forward to putting that support behind something positive and getting back to basketball.
