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: “Statement” Jerseys
Here's all 30 NBA statement jerseys, as revealed at #NikeXNBA. https://t.co/Xal7bwUTka— SB Nation NBA (@SBNationNBA) September 16, 2017
The Bucks “statement” jersey is just a Nike-fied, Fear the Deer look which follows a pattern with these new jerseys. They either stayed the same as teams’ alternates from previous years or they leaned into the new Nike jersey weirdness. The Minnesota Timberwolves jersey is, uh, something. I am also not a fan of the Utah Jazz all gold. The New York Knicks won the “statement” jersey battle here; that is a clean look they got going on. Which team’s new look is the best and which is the worst?
Today’s (off)topic: Lawn Mowing
The Milwaukee area is experiencing a summer like weekend here in mid-September and will be one of the last chances to mow the grass for the year. I am a push mower guy myself since it “builds character” as my dad would say. Any rider mowers out there that us character-builder-mowers are secretly envious of?
As a general rule, non-basketball topics are permitted in an open thread, provided that they follow the SB Nation Community Guidelines.
