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.
Whoever the Sixers pick at No. 3 will create a domino effect for teams picking behind them.https://t.co/55ysT8OuQ9— SB Nation NBA (@SBNationNBA) May 19, 2017
It may not be Milwaukee-centric, but I find the Philadelphia 76ers utterly fascinating. With their glut of top draft picks, how much does adding another one to the mix of Joel Embiid, Dario Saric, Jahlil Okafor, and Ben Simmons really help them? Sam Hinkie’s Process has given them all sorts of talent...but will it bear out?
Today’s (off)topic: track & field.
We have a “corporate Olympics” event today, and while I’m ecstatic that there’s a basketball component, I’m somewhat disappointed that there’s no classic Olympiad events. I want my javelins, my shotputs, and my hammer throws (that’s a thing, right?) Any of you have a similar experience, where your work had a “field day?” Or do we have any track & field aficionados in the building?
As a general rule, non-basketball topics are permitted in an open thread, provided that they follow the SB Nation Community Guidelines.
