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: Sports Illustrated Top 100 Players
Column: A position-by-position look at the Top 10 of the @SInow Top 100 NBA Players of 2019 list, plus a year-by-year look at how this year's Top 10 ranked over the past six years https://t.co/k6lOG9vFSJ pic.twitter.com/Tv6SyChV6d— Ben Golliver (@BenGolliver) September 13, 2018
Giannis’ rapid rise up Sports Illustrated top 100 player ranking really came in earnest last year, but now he’s knocking on the top-five player club that includes several pantheon players already in Kevin Durant and Lebron James. Personally, I think he’s probably rated correctly, but it’s tough to discern whether his two-way impact outweighs the outsized offensive games of both Harden and Curry. Either way, I have a feeling he may creep upwards even further come next year. Where would you have placed him?
Tonight’s Bonus (on) topic: Fiserv Forum Art
Another day, another peek inside the wonderful confines of the Fiserv Forum. This time, it’s the bounty of Bucks art adorning the walls of the new arena. They commissioned several artists to put these beautiful pieces together, and as someone who enjoys trolling for independent Bucks art, I wish some of these could go on my mantle.
As a general rule, non-basketball topics are permitted in an open thread, provided that they follow the SB Nation Community Guidelines.
