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:
ICYMI we asked followers some pet peeves on pickup ball the responses are great https://t.co/nI193RUIfs— Brew Hoop (@brewhoop) August 13, 2018
My biggest pick-up basketball pet peeve is undoubtedly the “hero ball” player that turns offensive possessions into 1-on-5 exhibitions. Not only is it bad basketball, but it gives the always-tired-pick-up-basketball-defense time to rest and not have to think too much. The best pick-up offense is quick passes coupled with as little dribbling as possible.
What is everyone’s pick-up pet peeves?
Tonight’s (off) topic: Fantasy Sports
The fantasy football content has been cranked up the past few weeks as we approach the opening kick-off of the NFL season. How many of y’all participate in fantasy football (or any league)? I have not done a fantasy league since 2013 when I won my fantasy football league (shout-out Matthew Stafford and Jamaal Charles), and I am pretty content with staying retired while going out on top.
As a general rule, non-basketball topics are permitted in an open thread, provided that they follow the SB Nation Community Guidelines.
