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:
65 days since the day after NBA Finals.— Micah Adams (@MicahAdams13) August 13, 2018
65 days until opening night.
We're officially halfway through the NBA offseason.
Folks, we are almost there.
What has been your favorite thing this off-season?
What has been your least favorite thing this off-season?
For me, my favorite thing has been all the news and pictures and good vibes coming from the arena’s opening. It is going to take some getting use to, but it will be a comfortable transition nonetheless.
My least favorite thing was all of the Jabari Parker related news. I’ll avoid rehashing everything, but it definitely left me with a slightly empty, shoulder shrug of an emotion. I don’t think anybody had any fun with that news.
Tonight’s (off) topic: Fortnite
Do y’all play Fortnite?
I had no idea it was free download, so I had never played it until two weekends ago. I am atrocious at your typical first-person shooter games (this goes back to Goldeneye on the N64), but I am not too shabby at this game! It is a really fun concept that is both realistic and unrealistic enough to be fun and has plenty of different variations of the battle royale game style to not be boring.
I am very late to the party, but it’s just as fun.
As a general rule, non-basketball topics are permitted in an open thread, provided that they follow the SB Nation Community Guidelines.
