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: The Knicks GM Job
Ex-Cavs GM David Griffin has pulled his name out of the Knicks' GM and president search after he couldn't come... https://t.co/H4oStS2yd6— Marc J. Spears (@MarcJSpearsESPN) July 9, 2017
*Cracks open can of worms*
Here we are folks, but I don’t want talk about whether you wish David Griffin would’ve gotten the Bucks job, I want to know whether you would take the Knicks job. They just signed Tim Hardaway Jr. to an outrageous contract and it feels as if you’re constantly stuck within the whirling vortex of James Dolan’s kazoo. If you were a prospective GM, would you touch that job with a Porzingis-sized pole? Or would you run for the hills hoping for greener pastures? Personally, I’d prefer the latter and it seems Griffin may’ve too.
Today’s (off)topic: Music Streaming Platform
Spotify. Amazon Music. Google Music. Apple Music. Tidal. It seems everyone wants a piece of that sonically streaming pie, yet they can’t all survive forever. Which one do you prefer to use, and for what particular reason? Personally, I’m most familiar with Spotify, find its interface very intuitive and it’s simple to make collaborative playlists with friends.
As a general rule, non-basketball topics are permitted in an open thread, provided that they follow the SB Nation Community Guidelines.
