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.
Tonight’s (on) topic: Coaching Interviews
ESPN story on Milwaukee coaching search advancing to meetings with ownership today in New York. https://t.co/xSXHt1rONC— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) May 15, 2018
We all knew that Mike Budenholzer would advance to the second round of interviews with the ownership hydra after being interviewed first by Jon Horst sometime last week. With the Toronto Raptors also reportedly pursuing him, the Bucks may feel like they have to pull the trigger quickly on Bud today in New York City and provide him with an offer.
Interestingly enough, Ettore Messina joined Bud in New York City to interview with the ownership group. It is safe to assume the interviews were separate, but how perfectly dysfunctional would it be for this to be a group interview? This was the first tidbit of info that Messina had advanced to the second interview stage of the
I would venture a guess that Bud is Plan A and Messina is Plan B if Bud decides to go helm the Raptors.
Tonight’s (off) topic: Michael Jordan 30 for 30
MJ is getting a 10 hour, 10 part, 30 for 30 series on Netflix coming in 2019. I feel like that could be whittled in half but maybe they really dig into his gambling and off-court shenanigans. Growing up in Northern Illinois during the 90s, I only remember the 1997 and 98 Finals, but Jordan’s shadow and mystique is still very much alive in that area. I’ll assume that we are all going to watch this, but this might not be a binge-able thing for me.
As a general rule, non-basketball topics are permitted in an open thread, provided that they follow the SB Nation Community Guidelines.
