'You Can Tear Me Down, But I Will Never Die!' Bradley Center Twitter Calls From the Grave

Words from the former home of the Milwaukee Bucks’ unofficial Twitter page.

Through a glitch or some programmer’s oversight, the Bradley Center incidentally was included in last year’s edition of the record-setting basketball video game NBA 2K19.

When players first loaded up a Milwaukee Bucks home game, some of the animations show the game is being played in Fiserv Forum. But the text on the court reads BMO Harris Bradley Center, even though that court was abandoned at the end of the 2017-18 season.

It’s especially ironic, since Giannis Antetokounmpo’s visage graced the cover of the game where his team’s home court was inaccurately recreated. (A patch in the game later corrected the error for internet-connected players, even though the original game came out more than a month after Fiserv’s name was announced.)

The BMO Harris Bradley Center is of course gone now, and NBA 2k20 includes Fiserv Forum’s actual hardwood in digital forum.

But when someone (@CooolJay_) brought up the error to the BMO Harris Bradley Center (@BMOHBC) on Twitter, the Bradley Center rose from the grave.

(Note: This isn’t an official BMO Harris Bradley Center account. Somebody — who just so happens to dislike Spotted Cow — just made it, and uses the name recognition to mock the likes of former Bucks coach Jason Kidd and promote the consumption of White Claw hard seltzer.)

@CooolJay tweeted “I guess it’s nice to still play in the BC” last month, to which @BMOHBC replied: “You can tear me down, but I will never die!”
