Welcome to the Brew Hoop Night Shift. Every evening at 9:00pm (central time), this all-purpose thread goes up, and the comments section is where it’s going down. What Bucks news did we not cover? What topics do you want to break down further? Or is there something non-Bucks that you want to bounce off of one another? Even something non-basketball? This is the place.
Kenyon Martin says if he's Carmelo, he's not waiving his no-trade clause: "I'm going to make James Dolan make a decision: me or Phil?" https://t.co/R7DZAogycl— Ian Begley (@IanBegley) May 15, 2017
Former Buck Kenyon Martin speaks on the mess that is the New York Knickerbockers, and I have to repeat one of my favorite mantras: there’s no schadenfreude quite like New York Knicks schadenfreude.
Today’s (off)topic: landline phones.
I saw an advertisement for my local Internet service provider that posted a cheap price for Internet service if we installed a telephone line. Does anybody even choose to have a landline in their house anymore? I completely get why businesses stick to landlines (reliability, control, etc.) but I see no reason why an individual would want to have a clunky box hooked up to something in their house when they could have that same functionality in their pocket.
As a general rule, non-basketball topics are permitted in an open thread, provided that they follow the SB Nation Community Guidelines.
