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: G-League Showcase
The Herd heads to Mississauga for the #NBAGLeague Showcase tonight! More about the annual event. #GLeagueWeekly #Trending pic.twitter.com/wuicAoZbCv— Wisconsin Herd (@WisconsinHerd) January 9, 2018
A nice quick video explaining the G-League showcase that begins tomorrow in the Toronto-area. Your Wisconsin Herd is joining the 25 other G-League for the pair of games in front of NBA scouts and execs. Which Herd player will shine and garner a two-way contract or even a 10-day contract? I think I’ll take Cliff Alexander as a dark horse 10-day contract receiver.
Today’s (off)topic: Do You Untie Your Shoes Every Time?
I am a big proponent of never having to tie shoes, so I will usually tie them when I first get them, and then slip my feet in and out of them at will without untying them. Of course, my nice work shoes have to be tied and untied every single time or the heels would get ruined. My Converse All-Stars have to be untied or I would never be able wriggle out of them. So, the million dollar question: do you set your sneakers up so that you can slide them on and off without having to tie and untie, or do you untie them before taking them off?
As a general rule, non-basketball topics are permitted in an open thread, provided that they follow the SB Nation Community Guidelines.
