Every evening at 8:00 pm central (or whenever we get around to it), 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: Doors opening?
Beginning at the end of the month, the Milwaukee Bucks may allow up to 25% capacity at their home games, according to the MKE Business Journal.
Details are sparse at the moment, but 25% capacity means up to 4,300 butts in the seats at Fiserv Forum. The reaction amongst Bucks Twitter is a mixture of elation and disappointment. Let us know what YOU think in the comments section.

Tonight’s (Off) Topic: Sports cards and memorabilia!
My brother and I have been collecting sports cards (NBA, NFL, MLB) since we were very young. We would buy boxes back when $150 would get you a top shelf box. I recently got back into the hobby and was astounded at how much boxes of cards cost now. $150 gets you a low-tier box where you are guaranteed one autograph or memorabilia card per box. We can thank Giannis Antetokounmpo, Zion Williamson, Mike Trout, Ronald Acuna Jr, and Luka Doncic for that. Are any of you readers interested in this sort of thing?
As a general rule, non-basketball topics are permitted in an open thread, provided that they follow the SB Nation Community Guidelines.
