Every evening at 8:00 pm central, 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: Giannis Antetokounmpo secures the bag and his future with the Milwaukee Bucks.
What a crazy offseason the Bucks had...from acquiring Bogdan Bogdanovic and then having the trade fall through, to waiting “patiently” for any news regarding Giannis potential signing the supermax. Well, Bucks fans, IT’S TIME TO POP ALL THE BOTTLES AND BREAK OUT THE RECEIPTS!
This is my home, this is my city.. I’m blessed to be able to be a part of the Milwaukee Bucks for the next 5 years. Let’s make these years count. The show goes on, let’s get it. pic.twitter.com/895tCBE9RK— Giannis Ugo Antetokounmpo (@Giannis_An34) December 15, 2020
We have been through a lot and deserve this moment to dunk on everyone who wanted (and still wants) Giannis to join a big market team.
Tonight’s (Off But On) Topic: Bucks drop their first two preseason games to the Dallas Mavericks...thoughts?
Well, if there’s one team to never play drop coverage on this year...it’s the Mavs. A team made to destroy the Bucks to be honest. It is only two games and there has been a lot of roster turnover that will take time for everyone in the locker room to gel. However, I thought Bobby Portis has looked great, D.J. Augustin looks as solid as advertised, and if Pat Connaughton takes regular-season minutes away from rookie Jordan Nwora I will riot. Leave your observations in the comments!
