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:
Awww yeah we got some hot virtual Giannis Antetokounmpo mean mug action.
That is a fun little animation for the 2K franchise to add and it makes sense it add it when the cover athlete has a wide array of mean mugs.
That last one is a Giannis Mean Mug Mug, which is brilliant.
What may have gotten lost in the hoopla was the brief glimpse of Brook Lopez in a Bucks uniform. We do not know what his number will be, but from the looks of this short video, it will be the number 12, formerly worn by Jabari Parker.
Tonight’s (off) topic:
The Green Bay Packers kicked-off their pre-season tonight against the Tennessee Titans, so the NFL is officially back for Wisconsin! How are we feeling about the Packers this season? Former University of Iowa-great, Joshua Jackson, is my pick to be the surprise defensive standout this season, despite being a rookie. As long as Aaron Rodgers is under center I cannot imagine the Packers missing the playoffs, even with an unheralded receiving corp.
As a general rule, non-basketball topics are permitted in an open thread, provided that they follow the SB Nation Community Guidelines.
