DTB’S OFFICIAL QUESTION OF THE DAY: Was Greg Monroe’s performance against the Milwaukee Bucks a revenge game, or was it not a revenge game?
OFFICIAL ARGUMENTS FOR IT BEING A REVENGE GAME:
-He was playing against the team that traded him. This is the baseline requirement for a game being a “revenge game”.
-He scored 22 points, which is a lot.
-He made Milwaukee fans miss him, maybe, and he made the Milwaukee front office regret trading him, probably.
-He took it hard against Thon Maker, who plays the position that Monroe played in Milwaukee.
OFFICIAL ARGUMENTS FOR IT NOT BEING A REVENGE GAME:
-He scored 22 points, which isn’t enough to count as “revenge”.
-He didn’t necessarily play extra hard just because he was playing against the Bucks.
-Eric Bledsoe’s revenge was way more vengeful than Monroe’s was.
-Nobody in Milwaukee really misses Monroe all that much to be honest.
-He did not punch any Bucks player or coach even one time. He didn’t even try.
DTB’S OFFICIAL FINAL VERDICT OF TRUTH: Greg Monroe’s 22 points against the Bucks last night might have been a revenge game.
