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: War Room All-Access
EXCLUSIVE All-Access look from inside the war room to the Barclays Center as the Bucks select Donte DiVincenzo: pic.twitter.com/O7veBWzHqi— Milwaukee Bucks (@Bucks) June 28, 2018
So by the looks of this all-access video, there is confirmation to what we have already known for a week now: the Bucks really wanted Donte DiVincenzo. What I thought was interesting about the video was hearing Jon Horst mention trading from their 17 spot. It was rumored that DDV would be picked by the Phoenix Suns at 16, so I am curious if that selection would have triggered a Bucks trade down since they seem to have been always been higher-than-most on DiVincenzo.
The editing of the video made it seem like the Bucks immediately made their selection once being announced as “on the clock.” I thought it was also interesting to see and hear Horst phone in the pick and then have the confirmation message confirm the pick back to him. It’s the little things.
Tonight’s (off) topic: Whistling
I can whistle, but I can only do the basic puckering while blowing out method. I have always been jealous of those that can whistle by just doing the finger thing in their mouths. How does that work? I’ve been trying for a lifetime and still no luck.
As a general rule, non-basketball topics are permitted in an open thread, provided that they follow the SB Nation Community Guidelines.
