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: MOAR CLICKBAIT!!!!
With the Bucks being out of action for the next handful of months, the clickbait articles have come in bunches. It’s my favorite time of year! Fire up the trade machine, too. Kevin Garnett was a recent guest on the Complex Load Management pod, and when asked about Giannis Antetokounmpo’s future, the big man insinuated that he does not see the reigning MVP and DPOY bolting out of Milwaukee. While this is not groundbreaking news and just his opinion, we are starting to see an uptick in former NBA players weigh in on this issue. Allen Iverson wants Giannis to join the Warriors...and I want six billion dollars.
Tonight’s (Off) Topic: How does everyone feel about the new playoff format in the MLB? I think adding the extra seeds is quirky and will lead to chaos which is something I am 100% in on. We saw what the NBA bubble can do to teams, so is the Marlins (who just clinched a play-in game) winning the World Series out of the question? Who knows. All I know as a Dodgers fan is disappointment, so I am already gearing up for a premature exit from the 2020 MLB postseason :(
As a general rule, non-basketball topics are permitted in an open thread, provided that they follow the SB Nation Community Guidelines.
