I started Brew Hoop along with Alex in October 2007 after previously writing about the Bucks at Just Another Bucks Fan.

My parents first got season tickets in 1991 and you know the story from there (the Bucks' decline and my fandom have never been conclusively linked, however). Though I moved to Boston for college and have been an East Coaster ever since, I'm a religious League Pass subscriber and schedule my holiday travels around the Bucks' schedule.

Aside from following the Bucks, I'm a fan of the Brewers, Packers and FC Barcelona, and also enjoy indie rock concerts, Mountain Dew, and being a mediocre hockey player.

A Fan Of...

  • MLB Milwaukee Brewers
  • NBA Milwaukee Bucks
  • NFL Green Bay Packers
  • NCAAF Wisconsin Badgers
  • La Liga FC Barcelona
  • EPL Tottenham Hotspur

Where does the basketball win share metric actually "distribute" wins across players?

It's ironic seeing Marshall added given he's basically the polar opposite of Knight

Yeah, I think the PG stuff is really secondary to him having more regular opportunities to create off the dribble in halfcourt

It strikes me as a bit odd that the Vegas narratives were so focused on Giannis' point guard skills rather than a more general ability to create shots/score
