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: NBA Emojis

When it comes to the NBA I will always associate emojis with DeAndre Jordan’s free agency from a few summers ago. Even without the social media play-by-play from players that free agency was wacky. The emojis the players’ used added to the fun and I will never forget Paul Pierce tweeting out a JPEG of an emoji. Any favorite/go-to emojis out there?
Today’s (off)topic: Y’all vs. You Guys
Which is the preferred form of describing a group of people? I have been saying, “Y’all,” for as long as I can remember but living above the Mason-Dixon line my entire life that phrase has always felt out of place compared to the more popular, “You guys.” The Pittsburgh-native in my office says, “Yinz,” which is just an abomination.
As a general rule, non-basketball topics are permitted in an open thread, provided that they follow the SB Nation Community Guidelines.
