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:
Today was the Milwaukee Bucks’ turn to be featured all day on NBATV as the league’s channel has been showing key games throughout the franchise’s existence. Game 7 of the 2001 Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Charlotte Hornets is my pick for best game to re-live, but as far as the best moment to relive goes, it has to be this one:
I am guilty of completely forgetting that Giannis Antetokounmpo poked the ball away and off of Derrick Rose to set-up his eventual buzzer beating shot. The play before the play always gets lost and Giannis’ defensive effort was fantastic and worthy of some recognition.
Tonight’s (off) topic: Paul Giamatti
There was a question at trivia last night about which actor/actress has appeared in: 12 Years a Slave, Straight Outta Compton, and Big Momma’s House. Of course, that actor is Paul Giamatti.
That question got me immediately thinking about Giamatti’s filmography and how my favorite role of his is in Big Fat Liar which stars Frankie Muniz and Amanda Bynes. I also forget that he has a small part in Saving Private Ryan. Of course, he is most noted for his role in Sideways which is about wine and that lady from Grey’s Anatomy. He’s been everywhere on the big screen for the better part of three decades.
Any one have a particular Giamatti movie they love?
