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: Bucks’ Cap Situation
Updated 18/19 Bucks cap situation following Jabari Parker's departure with placeholders for Ersan/Lopez deals: pic.twitter.com/o06lsmxMSi— Frank (@fmaddenNBA) July 15, 2018
Here is the updated salary cap situation for the Milwaukee Bucks now that the dust has settled from free agency. That $7.4 million in dead money is just the darkest of marks on this cap sheet. That’s a full role player salary that is wasted.
On the bright side, the asset salary hit is almost double the neutral/negative value contract hits. Progress!
Tonight’s (off) topic: Cheese Curd Eating
Hot dog eating champion Joey Chestnut and other top competitive eaters will be coming to the Wisconsin State Fair for the first Cheese Curd-Eating Championship. https://t.co/sdU4IcMOI6— Journal Sentinel (@journalsentinel) July 12, 2018
The first ever cheese curd eating championship will be happening and American hero, Joey Chestnut, will take on the event after setting the world record for most hot dogs eaten in 10 minutes (74) on July 4th. Chestnut has dabbled in competitively eating Wisconsin food before, he ate 70(!) brats at an event in CIncinnati back in 2013.
Chestnut and his competitors will have six minutes to snarf down as many curds as they can. How many cheese curds do you think you could eat in six minutes? How many will the winner end up eating?
As a general rule, non-basketball topics are permitted in an open thread, provided that they follow the SB Nation Community Guidelines.
