Bradley Center, former home of the Milwaukee Bucks, demolished using 'shape

What goes up apparently can also come crashing spectacularly down.

Demolition crews in Milwaukee, Wis. used explosives Sunday morning to demolish the roof of the Bradley Center, where the NBA‘s Milwaukee Bucks called home.

Crews have been slowly deconstructing the 30-year-old building piece by piece since it closed last summer, but used “shape charges” to bring the structure’s roof down at 9:02 a.m., according to FOX6.
