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. Yes, we’re back, the pandemic may have kept us down, but not out...
Today’s COVID-19 NBA Update
This is from a few days ago, but still feels relevant as the debate goes on about how best to approach returning to basketball.
As teams consider "essential" personnel for potential games, NBA GMs express deep concern about staffers with advanced age and/or underlying issues -- even head coaches. "I don't want to put them in harm's way," one NBA GM says. Story: https://t.co/g7meFhB8IE— Baxter Holmes (@Baxter) May 2, 2020
Today’s (on) topic: NBA Jerseys
With the NBA in limbo in the midst of its 74th season, we got together to rank the top 74 jerseys to ever grace the court.— ESPN (@espn) May 5, 2020
This is #NBARank: jersey edition ➡️ https://t.co/DKaf8NU6pa pic.twitter.com/lHAyeL7QPM
ESPN took their crack at ranking the top 74 NBA jerseys. I won’t spoil it, but a few different Bucks unis make the cut. Anyone have a particular favorite MKE jersey that comes to mind? I think these Classic Editions get short shrifted, they’re simple and clean in all the best ways for me.
Tonight’s (Off) Topic: Cinco de Mayo
I know Cinco de Mayo is a holiday that is quite meaningful to a vast number of people to celebrate Mexico’s victory over the French, and I do not want to diminish that in any way. I choose to use it as an opportunity to celebrate Mexican cuisine in a way I may not normally, trying out different recipes and stopping at some local shops just down the street to grab their fresh chips, salsa and more. Does anyone else here celebrate Cinco de Mayo? If you’re cooking like me, what’s on the menu?
