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: Festivus
Today is December 23 and for those who are fans of the show Seinfeld, the episode “The Strike” will let you know that means today is Festivus. Festivus is a secular holiday that focuses on anti-commercialization of Christmas. But with the show it has been more known about airing of grievances and let’s get the big one out of the way in Malcolm Brogdon.
Ahead of Malcolm Brogdon's return to Milwaukee, he spoke to reporters outside of the locker room. In a perfect world, would he have stayed? “I would’ve loved to play for this team, if they had wanted me. If they had valued me the way the Pacers value me. That’s all I gotta say.”— Eric Woodyard (@E_Woodyard) December 22, 2019
Our President is a good person and good player, it was a bummer that he isn’t with the team. But I said this on the podcast near the beginning of the season and I’ll say it again. He is good and the Bucks owners may be cheaping out on paying him. But they didn’t think he was worth 20+ million a year and found replacements (Wes Matthews, Kyle Korver) while hoping for internal options (George Hill and Donte DiVincrnzo) to improve. To say the Bucks are worse and/or NEED him is simply wrong. So it felt satisfying when he had a stat line of 10 points, 10 assists and 3 rebounds; he was also an inefficient 5/19 from the field. Oh well, here are some memes to move on from the encounter.

After thinking about it, Brogdon’s return was as underwhelming as the Rise of Skywalker.— Kyle Carr (@KyleCoche) December 23, 2019
Tonight’s (off) topic: Being Petty
Going with the theme of grievances, lets talk about being petty. Everybody is petty in some way shape or form. Sometimes it’s intentionally using all the toilet paper and not replacing the roll. Others may just give people the cold shoulder, some go to social media and sub tweet.

So what are some petty things you’ve done that you’re not too embarrassed to admit? For me there was time at one of my old jobs a coworker would play music very loudly, despite multiple request to lower the volume because our cube was right next to each other. After another failed request, I brought a stress ball and would bounce it off of our cubicle wall for 5 minutes straight at random points of the day; Needless to say, this annoyed him a lot.
