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: Hello, Off-season My Old Friend
With the Golden State Warriors winning their third championship in four years last night, the NBA off-season is officially here. With the draft less than two weeks away, we are still not fully immersed in the off-season minutiae, but it is on the horizon.
This off-season is huge for the Milwaukee Bucks as they look to continue to put together a team that can compete for an Eastern Conference, and league, title. Are the Bucks going to draft a guy with a high-floor, or stick with drafting long-term projects? What is going to happen with Jabari Parker? How many different American snack foods and drink will Giannis Antetokounmpo consume for the first time?
This off-season will also bring about a shift in the league as a whole. LeBron James is probably leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers for the second time (and who knows where he’ll end up (the Utah Jazz would be a cool landing spot)). Paul George is expected to head to the Los Angeles Lakers, or maybe go to the Houston Rockets? What is up with Kawhi Leonard?!
It’s looking like we are in for another stressful and entertaining (but mostly stressful) off-season. Strap in everyone!
Tonight’s (off) topic:
Greek mythology is really fun and as a kid I would request these stories as my bedtime stories. Hearing about how Medusa turned people into stone for making eye contact with her does not make for the most wholesome bedtime story, but I enjoyed it!
