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: It’s happening!!

Marc Lasry keeps going on national television...and keeps talking about the eventual return of the NBA! You love to see it! His latest statements put the return 6-8 weeks away with games played in Vegas and Orlando. What say everyone here? It sure seems like we’re inching closer to this becoming reality.

Tonight’s (Off...kinda on) Topic: Virtual Fan Noise

What does everyone think about the idea of pumping virtual fan noise into arenas? I’m torn, partially because I don’t want to hear the constant squeak-squeak of shoes, but I can’t square how they will properly pump it up and down. There was that game a few years ago with no music in the stadium, and it wasn’t received all that well by players. I feel like they could have a DJ in the arena (would only have to be one person) who could maybe help it feel less like an echo chamber?

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