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: Jabari Parker Extension
If you haven’t already, read Jabari’s section in this article, it is well worth your time. It delves into how his agent factors into negotiations, his injury history, and how the Bucks might have to sign him for whatever he wants since the team won’t have room to add a player of Parker’s caliber through free agency or the draft, since the Bucks figure to be selecting outside of the lottery for the foreseeable future. I think a max extension for Parker is unrealistic considering his injury history, but I understand the negotiation tactic being deployed. He’s slated to come back in late-February/early-March and that small sample size won’t be the handiest way to measure how much Jabari has recovered from his second ACL tear. How Parker’s extension talks fare will be the turning point for the franchise.
Today’s (off)topic: New iPhone
For those that are Apple users, how are we feeling about the new iPhone? I’m still rocking with my iPhone 6 and will continue to until that thing vaporizes. Do you, or someone you know, always need the latest piece of tech?
As a general rule, non-basketball topics are permitted in an open thread, provided that they follow the SB Nation Community Guidelines.
