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: Sacramento Kings New Court(s)

Sweet Moses I am in love with the Kings new alternate court. I am surprised that there is not a hint of purple anywhere on the court, but hey I think the powers that be in Sacramento did a bang up job regardless. I think I’ll make the Kings my 2K team just to play on this bad boy. This isn’t the only court they will use either:
International outreach: Kings' new black alternate court includes graphics in Hindi and Mandarin, depending on team's promotional campaign. pic.twitter.com/F8vjVZpYAR— Paul Lukas (@UniWatch) September 14, 2017
Talk about a global outreach effort! The NBA is a global league and with this move the Kings are one-step ahead of other franchises in creating their global brand. They are willing to directly call out two of the most populous countries on Earth with their new court graphics and that is awesome. With Milwaukee having deep German roots maybe they could go with “Die Hirsche” for a game.
Today’s (off)topic: Speed Limit
I go 5 over the limit and that’s about as much as I’m willing to push it during a normal commute. There will always be times that I go way over, of course, but those are few and far between. What’s your personal speed limit rule?
