The Brew Hoop Podcast Episode 10: A Whole New World

Early season takeaways and what trends may stick

NBA: New York Knicks at Milwaukee Bucks Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

With the Milwaukee Bucks finally getting into regular season play, it means The Brew Hoop Podcast can finally leave the realm of the theoretical and break down some honest to goodness games. That starts with an examination of the promising trends behind Milwaukee’s fast start. Is the outrageous number of 3-point jacking here to stay, and how can we adjust to the new ebbs and flows of Milwaukee’s offense now that Bud’s modern system is humming along.

Then, a deeper dive into the Bucks’ revamped defensive strategy and what sort of ways teams could still exploit it. The gambit of allowing midrange shots makes sense mathematically, but there could be antidotes to its early season success as coaches start to make adjustments. We close it out with a preview of the week ahead.

Apologies in advance for the poor jokes and puns that abound, trust me when I say that even for me, these are pretty bad. Suggestions for the Donte segment name are welcome.
