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 Africa Game
We're ONE WEEK away from the 2017 #NBAAfricaGame in Johannesburg, South Africa! pic.twitter.com/hIupTAIcD9— NBA (@NBA) July 29, 2017
I remember waking up two summers ago hella early to ensure my roommates and I would get our summer dose of Giannis in the NBA Africa Game. Not only was Doris Burke singing the Greek Freak’s praises all game, but he looked dominating in the exhibition match and wasn’t embarrassed by Hakeem or Dikembe at all. What do you remember from that fateful summer day?
Today’s (off)topic: Cooling off from Summer Heat
I hate summer heat, so much so it is actually my least favorite season. Even within the respite of a running AC machine, after several days the house starts to fill with cold stale air and it’s just not the same. Still, that’s my preferred method of escaping the summer heat, but what’s yours? Do you prefer splashing around in the pool, or locking yourself inside and cranking that machine to cool?
