Brew Hoop Night Shift: March 15th, 2020

Every evening at roughly 8:20pm, 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: Eight Week Delays and G-League Cancellations

A few bits of news coming across the wire earlier this evening:

Neither piece of info is great, but it seemed likely that something along the lines of a long delay was in the cards. It’s positive that the players will get their contract payouts (given how little the average G-Leaguer makes as it is), and is undoubtedly the correct and only realistic move given the nature of travel for those teams.

On the NBA front things are as up in the air as ever. If the season is delayed until June, does that open up the possibility of a truncated regular season to ramp up for a truncated playoffs? Do they choose to play it out as if nothing had happened and kick back the start of next season? At least the league will now have 30 days to assess the situation and make an informed call on how to salvage things.

Tonight’s Off-Topic: Handwashing

Wash them, folks. Just do it.

As a general rule, non-basketball topics are permitted in an open thread, provided that they follow the SB Nation Community Guidelines.
