Occasionally on evenings 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 (Sorta On) Topic: Blake Griffin to Brooklyn?
Well, this was inevitable, to be honest. Blake Griffin’s career arc is very depressing and he is far from the player he was back in his Los Angeles Clippers days. He’s shooting 36.5% from the field and 31% from deep on six attempts per game. Oh, he can’t defend a chair, either. How bad do things have to be to get bought out by the Detroit Pistons? Yikes.
The Nets are clicking right now and seemed to find rotations that work for them, but if they want to risk messing it up by signing Griffin, I am not going to stop them. In fact, I am sure most contending teams in the Eastern Conference welcome this idea!
The Brooklyn Nets are believed to be leaders to sign six-time All-Star Blake Griffin, sources tell me and @JLEdwardsIII. Rival teams with interest are expecting Griffin to choose Nets as a title favorite for chance to win a championship.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) March 5, 2021
Tonight’s (Off) Topic: Fantasy baseball, anyone?!
My brother and best friend have had a fantasy baseball league running for the last 11 years. We are looking for one person to fill in our 12-team league! Buy-in is $100, it is head-to-head scoring, and standard roster size (added IL slots because of COVID). Everyone pays close attention to their lineups and waiver wire in this league, and if you are a passionate fantasy baseball player, DM me on Twitter!
