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.
Today’s (on)topic: Worst Free Agent Deals
Blake Griffin plans to reach agreement on a five-year, $173 million deal with the Los Angeles Clippers, league sources tell The Vertical.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) July 1, 2017
The NBA’s silly season is officially underway, and dollar figures are being tossed around like candy. There haven’t been near as many poor contracts signed so far as last year’s spending spree, but what contract do you find most questionable so far? My vote goes for Blake Griffin, but who do you have pegged for grossly overpaid already?
Today’s (off)topic: fruits or veggies
Personally, I can’t imagine someone choosing the chewy blandness of vegetables or the delectable sweetness of most fruits, but there are some crazy people out there. Now, when I’m cooking, vegetables clearly take center stage, but on their own, people who casually munch on a tomato over an apple are nutso. What say you?
As a general rule, non-basketball topics are permitted in an open thread, provided that they follow the SB Nation Community Guidelines.
