it is a twenty Pacific. She saw another credible that would suffer which team that sub groups the best and were attacked by the less seventy two thus hours with the India, the Rhine, resellers. Here you texted me. I need hose down after that Murray Verses, Mitchell Battle, most my friend, hence texted me Has there been a more in insane shot, making dual like that over the course of two weeks, then these two guys been having I'm kind of hard pressed to. Think of any other example. Ever
or you mean recently. I thought you gonna go Dominic Bird. It has one game now this is insane. This is I I work go ahead, you start and then all jump in later is I'm too I'm afraid. I'm gonna go for five minutes on. Well, I To be honest, I wager that New Tottenhot, the theory being Mitchell, keep our Murray can't do that again. He had fifty eight forty two, which was a good, have three straight. Forty point games like nobody's done that that's like Iverson, two thousand one territory and then, of course, very puts up fifty. I don't know what you thought I was doing defensible, I've no explanation for it. I don't know why they just weren't rapping home in training at the bar of sands. Anything at all point near the end, their Jordan Clarkson was just on but against them you can guess how it turned out, but never been all the adjustments in the series.
They kind of suddenly figured out how to shift their efforts more toward bury less toward yoke so that when it doesn't work out for married, they have yoke age as the second option, which is bonkers cause. I voted him for third firm BP and this series than I thought was over after forget, Now looks like none of this Denver have all the momentum. I don't really know what you do. If your Utah cuz, you only have seven guys. Two of them are very good trying to lie. You can't hide. Sensibly, for whatever reason that what would you do? If your, then, how do you fix this for a game? Seven, we have to hope this. Guy starts missing shots and we can sit here and talk about adjustments. First, with a couple things here, marinas last three games, fifty point: eleven board: seven assists nine hundred and fifteen from three game. Five hundred and forty two
in eight for aid from through that seventeen to twenty six overall and game six, which sought fifty point, gave him again. Five or six assist nine twelve from three, and that was after game. One. We actually thought Denmark can be. The promises Mitchell puts up fifty seven but Murray closed that game out Murray at the unstoppable one. So if we want to talk adjustments which everyone will talk about, but I dont believe The adjustments are always there, especially when it something like this, like what we just saw was this special. So if you guys never gonna miss, I don't know what you're supposed to do, especially when it's the two main gate, which I think is incredibly predictable over the years and cut a help. They lead. Me having like limitations on my expectations were Devereux, which I think are totally justifiable, because we're gonna dig into whom Murray his and this has not always been, has never been this. This is insane. So, if you have to me, a game were Murray in your right has had more usage. Now they flipped it between. He had Yoke Ich. You can't keep too with the shooter, because your actually leaving Kyle
Yoke Ich and then, by the way, whose is an unbelievable passer enact at three onto hockey situation exactly so, if you're leaving him to make a decision, I think all the other times you ve seen for on three you have one of the biggest decision makers great passers, in a really reliable shooter. There is even that play which is a classic like hey. How come they don't just switch back at a bad switches calmly. Try to do that go bear left. Yoke is wide open for second boom. Three, no problem but Utah's. I know what's gonna happen as a result, you gonna Dublin, we gotta Dublin, we gotta Dublin, you know what March action brought it up in the clippers game against Dallas when quite was destroying Dallas INDIGO, you gonNA, Dublin, we got a double em. They brought a double immediately a pass dunk no contest. So these guys are not that easy to double to say you want to trap Murray, a fine, but they just like you said it gets back to yoke its foreign three and then the only thing I saw you taught do was they switched yoke? Its defenders so would be a wing. Silica least now is not go. Bear. Have
chases guy around this huge screen and that didn't work is look when you're not going to miss, there's not really much you can do, and on top of that, throwing Jeremy we at eighteen points for seven and carry it. Murray's knock and amiss in grants get new eighteen and bearing for threes you're gonna lose well. I would have left porter up and unjust doubled with his guire trap. There anything once Murray funny he's like when, when my son has too much sugar, any just gets his look in his eyes and you're, like my god, and you just gotta at the next half hour is gonna, be like is one of those basketball players. He gets that look in your like owner and especially if you're back it gets them are Rudy against them. Their had supplied with them this is it and he was very Jekyll and Hyde over the first three years of his career cuz last year in the playoffs. Did this couple times you like about me and imagine if you did that more often now he's twenty three he's rounding into
Maybe this is who is going to be and what is looked like this series is a cross between staff curried daily limit. Honestly, if you're, if they're gonna have a baby would be Jabbar Murray. The series I had said something after game go, you know Murray, look out if he's this and then and none of this new, it's all the fan bases, but It always always been. This bullshit now been this now like you just said a year ago, game three against the spurs in in a key player game. He had six points, but he was only two of six has. You just drop. Fifty one year ago I get getting author and more experience that generally took six shots interplay of game and then in Portland Game too. He was six eighteen game. Seventy was for eight ten eleven leaves two and three the series, am I in those that was that was the wrapper Murray yeah me what we're talking. A week ago we had fourteen and twelve and now he's turned into. I guess lowered at least from the production standpoint. But well is nuts
Here's the weird thing about Murray and there's a misconception about like how good of a three point is cause a games like the last three, but you know phrase career. In two thousand and thirty six point: seven percent from three this season: two thousand twenty thirty four points: six percent for three and then you go in the playoffs last year was thirty three point, seven percent from three this year it was fifty two before going into the game. So now he's gotta be like fifty five percent. It's a break, our party, it's what it is, and I think we all thought he had the talent. I just didn't, think he'd ever be able to do it. This delay, aren't any there's something in selling found a place in his brain with with just his control with a game. And yes, we ve seen happened. It's happened in the past with other guys. I I just didn't expect it would be him in the series are that this year's is over after game for locally
His overcoat Mitchell was reminding us of what his ceiling is and he was not to get me. Never combine the mission, serious uremic Sargasso Glengarry going now. I do think it'll be a you know. We he says that runs through our at psycho renal versus the brand. You have those kind It was right to shoot out serious this. This turned out to be the star. One the series and that, if your Denver like sharks- and I we did a park ass before game five were just talking about you know- could then remove Murray for Ben Simmons. I would you do that Is it what's birds? Vine? Ask I kind of like the fit with marine yoke. Edge the way he's playing now you're thinking no matter what happens in game seven, I think he's touchable now yoke judges and untouchable, now porters the great x factor the thing today, Porter sucked in that game years, real down in that set, and I just think it the more I watch this year that team, especially the less
gives they just don't amateur guys, and you can really feel today it so hard for them other than Mitchell to just get consistent, often from people kindly go, bear who really seems like he wants the ball more there's there's moments where there there they were trapping Mitchell twenty being go, bears come it out like give it to me I'll. Do something had sake noted? What do you do it? I dont know what the answers for them unless it's a good Jordan carts and he check which they were caught, hoping for that it can give it up. So when they want all the games. When it looked like this thing was over, they were playing like the highest level of basque body. I've seen them play all your long, and yet you sit there. Looking demigod. Ok, you hold off Mitchell and now you're playing you Todd, Slick. Three the case go bear had while most twenty in the half one of the games and it looked like yoke. It was just stock because the perimeter defenders are not very good for Denver.
Then, maybe Tory Craig another very Harris back and you they are a yoke ich. I mean every love to go, bear isn't always yoke adjust fall. He was screwing up some of his coverage and some of it, but then you they. While go bear who, at times you just like, I always try to bring, these gained a game situations where it looked like. He was a major problem for them in Denver had no answers, and just because this has happened, it doesn't mean now. There's no way that You talk in win game, seven, but kindly they got any shots. Ingles had some amazing play. Making games in their mitya was perfect, but the problem as as Mitchell, starts to bail out everyone around him. You can see them revert back to that one dimension. And I really am five points in that game. Yeah. I don't blame him for not wanting to kick it out to New Yang for three late in a game but yeah we're lucky. You toss just a Alex
I don't. I actually have a real in depth. Gonna wanna hear a seven page synopsis of breakdown of what happened here, because when Maria do this to you. I don't really know. There's a lot of answers. Denver did. I did think my alone had a very good first for games the most important they needed, especially in today's game, where he basically stripped down the mill sap minutes and just one more athletic and put the ball in Murray Sands and played a more remarry point, forty three minutes and again, but it has thicket big picture that this serious now as a memorable serious, well. You know what was remember that guy was the best series of first round that year is this one? It is crazy. Both of these guys were guys in the draft that some people loved. Other people weren't shore about and when they got drafted it seemed a little too late in each case, Khazar murmured, the South Ex, whereby between jail and brown and bury it three right, and I think
was a real battle internally about which way to go. They well it brown, but then Bender went forth to Phoenix Kristen fifty Minnesota held when six to New Orleans Murray fell to seven to Denver Then you go One year later, the Mitchell draft or marketing go seven hundred and eighty eight. The draft make sense until after seven near Lincoln goes eight to the next Dennis Smith, nine to Dallas at Collins, tents, Mark Eleventh Luke Canal, twelve and then Mitchell and add a bio go back to back thirteen fourteen, but you think, like I do wonder if the chip on the shoulder thing does help of some of these guys right. When you go, the forty six picks a little too late. Sometimes it's the best thing that can happen to you, not that that's the main reason these guys, you so great, but some us better to go thirteenth and
ii you know ya might be better to because of the team you land on, although you don't go over to Troy, doesn't exactly I don't know, but that's probably more of a canard problems and it is a Detroit problem. I continue to be just amazed at the shop making it level the acceptable shot in it's something I brought up with this year's draft class. Where I go, all these guys think they can shoot in there. A lot of them can't but they're still taking the shot, because the grown ups are taking these shots, but to think, come off these screens and pull up from twenty five twenty eight feet and you're. Like I'm good, I mean it's too many possesses a Sunni peopled now taking bad threes, because everybody's taking threes but the special players like these shots were just a coach. Would he yelled at you about the shots? I don't know
in years ago, would have had the one when Mary they got to steal any just pulled up from twenty eight forbidden who it was even a fast break. There's nobody into the basket, like ten years ago, but at heart attack yeah there's too many guys giving up lay ups, I gotta know of Oklahoma. These primary often now was DR get a good look at a lamp. Kick it at the door in the corner for three. I still can't believe. Lou Dort took nine shots in the first place coming. I know no, but despite the three point disperse hold them she seen from some guys, you like why? Why are you taking the shot on the high end of it? in this. The top of the league is so talented. It's so d I mean if I were to radio the next day and you go oh man, you can't take Mitchell over We now mean that be the mistake, but this is but he whose never score twenty points a game for a season. You pointed out his career,
three point numbers are good they're, not off the charts. He was thirty four percent this year and now he's had a week plus where I may. I look I'm not putting in my top ten. That's insane. He hasn't proven. That's that's just not! Oh yes, that's not even a even discuss disgusted. He is a guy who's better in the playoffs in the regular season. From what we've seen or cycle, he heard even open, True, though I mean they now I'd like them last year, I thought he had some began. So when up and down, but he certainly you know roasted. Cohesion in ways that we didn't expect last year and now he's made another leap again, I part of it is he's not great defensively. Neither is Mitchell ahead here. These guys, Great offensive where's, I don't know if the all around tag could really stick to them, but if
I think Murray's handles a little tighter abs watching them closer and closer, but if you can shoot like that, but also survive and traffic with your handle, it just opens up so many other things for you, the shot make a thing you think like these are the kids of the the curry generation right. Two thousand fourteen The thirteen and fourteen those where team, through talking seven years ago, Mitchell merrier both sixteen their nay you in high school there there rounding into they're gonna, be, but now there's this whole evolution in basketball. Coming. That's probably the cut off far fear like sixteen you're, like a man, Maybe I'll just shoot from there it out there's this liberal shit. So now you have
What we are seeing now, I didn't think Mitchell was gonna, be shoot the three site that can I ask you if you're the clippers after watching these first six games? Who would you rather play in round two because I would have said I'd much rather poor, Denver up until three days ago, but after gave game sex. I dont think I'd worry part of everything I beat their seats. Is higher than the utility so hid her. Miss though, and I'm not gonna fall victim to this right now, because before the series we're all gonna collectively down on you talk right? Nobody night, I'm that high on either a team, I'm just saying from the quivers rather play it, but you would have no way. You would have said this five days ago.
Soon. As I did know, Jabbar Mary was Fuckin cross between current. They lowered new information. He said fifty fortitude. Fifty back to back apes by opinion is judged. Yeah I'd. Think I'd rather do go. Bear the nerves, irksome monotony so yeah. I would rather talk. I just think, Utah's depth, you know they were it. Looked like they're gonna be able to patch together, but you look at this game. The played twenty minutes. He was terrible. He was minus nineteen, twenty minutes, Clarkson thirty minutes and then Morgan put minutes Bradley played five minutes. The biscuit put seven guys. I don't think you can do that against the clips. Look at the wings so you toss problems worse on the oil has Chase Marie round the entire night. You can't take again, you can put angles on him. He kept Mitchell autumn. I mean Mitchell, got him in this gonna confusing.
Chaotic night was really a switch, it was just loose ball. I mean Murray, went right by him to a strong hand and he went away from the past and he went around Murray, but then it beats. Murder. Excuse me, Murray, beats Mitchell. You think I got him and then go Neil or somebody recovered in contested any hit like a sideways floater and his co hurry. What worries was do there if you're the clippers radically Utah, because the lack of death, because what are you gonna do with the wings Utah Mitchell in that it allows ironing mismatch. Yeah yeah, that's a problem, so you don't get it Though in Denver also good match up to them, because they have a lot of deeds to throw it Mary. You know that guy Beverly they Reggie Jackson, taken if they wanted to messrs the throw colliding Georgiana and then their markets more as to do at least when she shot get him in trouble double tax situation every do anything on Mars.
Now I think his behaviour spoke for itself that the third runway I trying to set the tone- I think I I think he's position himself Down the tough guy in the steam inhumanity, tough guy, Marcus Marster. He also with your hair- is back to release defensively. There's options there there's grant there's Harris going against the cliffs. You mean yeah, I mean cliffs, thereby cops are better than both. In this sense, I think this worked out grasses Eclipse. The DOW series we're in Talk Bell little bed, they get a bunch of four hundred and things happen, things there and then the series. These are two round one teams, in my opinion, as great as the Murray thing has been, but yeah it's when you think like We still, where sure about Murray, really in any way a week ago, he's here winner of the Radwan break out star, think we say over leaders over who overlooker
we'll LUCA was already a star. The radwan always says: one guy who's. I well this guy and I think he is that either she said not care is over now can't give it to care escape, give it to our semi, usually that stuff quickly. Let's talk about I'm just the last three and a half days because, I thought the players got a lot of good stuff Dunham in some of those that they got with the arena and the voting and need think like an whence. They had seemed You know everything was happening so fast and their throw and stuff You are really sure leg. I would sir strives either time come up with a strategy, but over the course of two days When they decided to stay in the bubble and really push for some stuff, it did seem like some really good stuff happened. I thought they did a good on the jump on Saturday, Pa Pierce was with them, Barnes Rachel Nicholls
there, there's some meaningful progress that the NBA spearheaded there since Wednesday, and I don't know, thought part He's gonna go down. The bubble was to use the platform, use your voices try to get shit down in it. It feels like that happen for the most part. Yes, I said I might buy this week, I'm at the players to the point they didn't want to play. Then I sports players. You know, I'm always going to sit there and say: hey. I love basketball. You guys need to start by never felt that at me like a lot of people, Wednesday were everywhere all right, let's go and then you're. Like oh sums, goin on here. I did think. However, the he said is right. I mean to be able to use these arenas too. Then they should be able to use. These arenas show the public scrutiny These. These deals are always bad for the public all the time under they're sold this bill, a goods and all the things that are going to do in a lot of it is kind of hard to come.
Many in these guys, even I'll argue you sometimes not every owners, because it says on paper, has that much liquid to be able to pull off some of these moves. They always get hooked up, because this inferiority com, You haven't cities, never wanted lose a franchise, so yeah, I'm glad that the players know it's pretty powerful. When you realise like hey, we can actually shit done here. If you don't want to go and play, I do think there's another part of this. That I thought was just interesting in that. If you have four five buddies, you want to say Haiti already wanna do tonight, there's no way you're gonna be on the same page and to have hundreds of players and then staff, but I was really about the players, not all on the same page, that first night in that first meeting those
early really heated. I dont think any. That should be that surprising and I dont think it actually should be seen as a negative. A part of me at first was like wait. Will you guys? Can I order you look? What exactly is the plan and in it was like, will look, Milwaukee decided to do something as it meant something in a walkie, because it was close to them and that's cool them. A walkie like Milwaukee can go ahead and make sure everybody else is on the same page, thus have a meeting. Let's have a committee, and now they made the decision they made it immediately and they sat enough to go out there and play. I guess a lot of people from some stop. I heard were upset on Wednesday, but they slept on it. They talked it out a little bit more. They got some stuff done, but I think the plan was always that they're going to come back and play. Where are they? just a million different stories going in a bunch different places. I went back and radical stuff and I'm Goin, the timeline of it was was all over the place, but I think real things happened here, despite the fact that sometimes I think there's a push for change that
isn't realistic, given the amount of time in other. Sometimes you like. Ok, this can happen. Somebody's decision can be made by owners, but some of the other policy stuff, like you understand that this is going to but overnight was amazed out. I was I was fascinated: at the Bower moments in ages, how on me Jabbar. It is just from getting opinions for different people. I was asking how many people you think we're in there and it seem like before they coaches left because it s the coaches left. Maybe a third of the way in her report ever told me to get out of it right. Yet I dont believe there was a two hundred and fifty people in their so think about how big that is. That I've been in meetings. I got that all hands buildings for the ringer, for my tv show. Whatever we have like fifty people, seventy people crammed into room. It's. It's really hard fur like everybody to have a voice and read is sometimes you have to pass a MIKE around two hundred and fifty people is the size of like a big wedding. They tat
I think about your out at a wedding and the best made is giving a speech you gotta, and how big like the room is. You gotta have a quiet down quite down Tony's, going to speak and just to have a two open discussion with that many people are I can't even imagine even add by ex, but suppose there was a corresponding without relating it. Then a couple other people were in, but I dont, even how they pulled off, just being able to make as much progress they did? I once said I had answered in read enough about it. I would have had more stories you because some of it was was like all over the place right here. The pad Beverly stuff, Michel Roberts came out, and he basically just went. Adder was about your salary was interrupting her and then people were saying all that stuff. We know what happened, but then it was like Zoobots was one of the guys that didn't happen is like. What did he do that cuz? It was a teammate. Look something happen all right. I was told something happened
the way it was told me was you have to understand is a room of two hundred plus millionaires, sometimes a hundred times over and there the best the world at what they do and there's gonna be a confidence in your position, because her whole life, like that's kind of, what's lead you to this point. You ve been the man throughout your entire life or whatever your statuses in the NBA once you're in that room. I can't imagine how difficult it was to try to figure out, but I the other ports. It always. I think that just because we'll get quotes- and this happened before the bubble was even announced- the scene was gonna happen. If you want, we can get quotes from somebody saying I don't want to go back and play now is not the time and then it starts to shape the story and will quickly forget. That is usually like another a hundred guys that actually want to keep playing seizure, and it doesn't mean that everything that's going on is impacting them. Jamal Murray was in tears after fifty point game, because everything that he's gone through, but clearly
to be out there in place. I think you can be a but still want to be in the bubble and I felt like a times will get quotes their released. Somebody that doesn't want to be there or is questioning the entire thing when will actually, ignore the majority of players in this is twice now, because when the bubble thing was happening, remember we and our talk. I await and my reading this right as all my information, bad you most suppliers, not one, actually restart the season. While that's weird and then the vote comes in. It was a landslide by the players to come back and play. Let me ask you a question: do you think there will be. I don't know if the bright way to say it is a bill do, but do you think there will be some push back From the owners down the line in that order Lee it still an employer, employee relationship, and this is gonna, be factored in December. The CBS stuff, like I just one
there's a day coming where they'll be some resentment from thirty billion years ago. I understand why? Because of what happened, why you stop playing, but we are also still the ones in charge, I just wondered cuz any publicly. We all know that the players are fully supporting her for the most part. It's just something that crossed my mind. So I don't know I'm asking you I think they'll get through. The next couple months, because they are now important- it is in so many good things- are happening, but it's the elephant in the room right at some point, especially if the fans can't come back next season right away. These guys are going to turn into businessmen, and I think that's why one of the reasons it so important for the players to get
as much as they can out of this situation. Right now would say very smartly into their credit have pulled off and it was hard to. There is so many conflicting reports about, especially from that Wednesday but there was some generational stuff going on to you now. Stephen ay, when he talked on first take about Leubronn that I'd heard the same stuff that when the broad spoken Wednesday night, like some of the younger players, felt like he was condescending. You know when you think like so when you're just talking about other factors beyond the the stuff that everybody talked about your talk this honour play, a relationship that they can pretend everything's get better. At some point, they're gonna have to figure out the sea Ba and going to become a leverage, bad or not there yet but its looming and then his generation thing where you have. You know that this generation. This Nugent,
and yet, by the way, the best part in the box, the team that boycotted the game and saw the whole thing and how the generational thing plays out, because I was filling the best prayers control, the Whig, its use, veterans, that's, I think the main reason. Why were the bubble in the first place as Chris Paul and the brown and people that but the generational so. Did come did come out a little bare in a way that is was healthy, was healthy, Wednesday night. I'm glad, I'm glad glad, I'm glad there I'm glad they slept on it because it did seem like from all, was getting a little tense and it did have something to the generational stuff. I mean the Lebron part two special cuz. It was reported that he didn't say a word and then they will know that's how it happened, because, apparently, as you saying in her the same pissing deeds often there, but that I think, is the whole point. Like think of any group of p Anybody know your electric union had secured her people in a wedding, like you just said,
I don't care who you are? It's outgoing automatically you're, not all road in the same direction. Yeah you just aren't! So when you heard these stories about arguments, People do not differ pages. I didn't really look at is like all its negative, like these guys can't figure it out. I expect a room of that. Many people do not be able to figure it out and the fact it look. I say something bad guys wanted to play and that's why, after a few days remove from getting some things that they wanted getting people on the phone that they felt like we're being sincere, They got some duck. Is I'll tell you I don't know. Ten years ago I dont know how the story be covered. I would have never thought it could, happened when we were here and the rumours the beginning of the week like all they may, the players, man a boycott, some games. Unlike wait, what is going to happen- and I just we know that the South X and raptors they met in- what's it say, is south ex rafters and box, I think, are on the same hotel.
The Celtics and raptors bad about about possibly boy kind of game. One and I think the box were thinking about it as well and and eat out. That's the other crazy piece of this is August at the same place. She having meetings and interactions tat just couldn't we're happen in any other situation. They you'd never gonna. Have all these teams in one place. I think everything about it. Everything about this week feels historic to me now. This is. This is like a new president of what we are willing to believe can happen in sports, no- I mean I don't like him say ten years ago, I would like adding to the players. Would players even say: hey, let's stop playing games I don't know that whatever happened, the books were totally happy forefront in their game, that's what they were going to establish. Therefore, right yeah forfeit, it was gonna, be three too. Like we're good as they move, and I will wait. We didn't want the rest of you guys to shut down and everything then the other players. I think some of the arguments were won't you guys do that and we
go out play whatever I mean, none of it really matters and by the way, no historically bill Russell and the boycott. Yeah. There's been a lot of look there's that kind of stuff. That's happened before so don't act like it's never ever happened, but I'm just sing, at least in recent memory. It's something that when I first heard the being the week, I wasn't a hundred percent sure fight It was something what actually happened in an area awesome. Also, my response by everyone a really cool week for the weak and debated difference which the whole reason their down there. I had that. Can I added I regret, though, because you now just keep saying these guys are so remove. They may not realise what they're doing and how its resonating is You know they have internet, yet they define it. I'm pretty sure they're all aware of everything. That's going on social media, especially a group of guys this young. I got to be shocked if they didn't know how big of a deal. This is been the last couple days wherein talk about the rest of the play.

Parliament's additional terms do apply. I saw a guy look, got knocked out and he heard them talking on the phone. Cast about it and then there's been some stuff online about moves are going to make this summer and yet to get a couple were play off guys in there and their close the fight that here's a problem. There are many capper now seems important there. Yet a hundred and ten point nine million on the cap for next year and that sign, including, like colds draft pigs, to fight that they have pausing.
And hard away just those two guys are at forty eight million next year and before before we get to what you would do a few dallas. My first question to you is two thousand and twenty the last year this decade that LUCA gets knocked out and around one. If he's really this special top five, actually top three, then I've always thought those guys can a series, at least in the first round on their own. But the present thing is a real problem, because I by the end of the year. We always felt pretty good about him with LUCA will you agree. I felt like it was their upgrade move if they wanted to get frisky, because I was building a team around LUCA I would want to build a team that looked like this. The Celtics Regis have disposable, big eyes
you put your money and the wings people like jail, embrowned type, guys be the guy's outline abode. Look, I would pausing it. Wouldn't be my first choice now, but considering what they gave up, Brazil is actually no breyer yet discount right. But now that we have another leg, injury for procedures which is signal and I mean it empty seals at the end of the world, but it's not a strain and it's the other, it's the other leg to which is a concern. I'll get it in you don't talk ass. We ve talked about this many times the gate to ya you seven to end up. Just weird shit starts happening when they were like total suit the durability success stories, other than Karim when she get like above seven to it always seems, like you know, a gas casemates using gas. Like those tat, though, and beat you said into and out by just get a little nervous, so I dont think they would trade posing as, but I do think.
I do think he would have value, I do think you'd be you'd be selling relatively high, and I do think there's tee that they're like, for instance,. If they cod caught the Wizards- and you said pausing is Bradley Beale. Let's call it in who says that wizards now, because poisonous. Because of everything we just said injury propensity for injuries at that size. Hell I'm wondering what can be free agent. I had people that said they have. If doctors it like just don't trust, is feeder. Gonna stay healthy in here, like uh yeah, but look he's the one like two rings after So it's not like it has worked out, but is also not like he's been incredibly healthy. The entire time to it again not sit precieuses is even in the same. Never hit is as Katy. Brazil is thirty, six million in three years: hoof, that's probably whites and no from a lot of teams. So I
they gets impossible, utterly impossible to say LUCA doesn't get out the first round next year, but he D was unbelievable. I mean he's thirty ten in eight on forty nine to thirty four percent in a series against team, a team with a lot of really good wing defenders, any he worked em all without. Let me think about who is number two options were once posing as went down and then get ejected game. One and LUCA still put up those kinds of numbers you have found Dallas, I'm probably not panic aim because I look at this Year'S- and I think of this- is the series it when is wrong, as it possibly could have from the objection. LUCA, getting hurt them posing, as gets irony in just a man. If we do this year's twenty times Is there a version where were thrown some haymakers, and this is going to a game? Seven going deep stuff like that, I guess with with the Porzingis thing. I think you would have to run it back, but I would call some of the dumb teams right. I think you have to take the tire
maybe just to make sure they're not going to trade him to Sacramento Sacrament as always want to do something we're right. Little low, healed, badly. Prison guess yeah do in a second right now, who would who would do its? her manner douse Dallas. The fact remains that will any question that starts with Will Sacramento excessive. That is to say yes answer makes it look at question. Is this? Is the last time this decade he gets act out of around one, I think he's maybe that certain, because I know because I like to say things that we have no idea if it can be proven I'm just looking at the very of agitator. We have to keep track of at least fifteen years a check in when you're. Seventy, like that LUCA predictions Coastal Workin out,
Eight, twenty twenty nine back member that time, I told you he was never going to lose that red. Whenever, again, are you, unlike you, still as a loss in the first round here like Loop, Perry, bird magic, those guys by the time they were twenty two there just making rant is, I think, Leubronn what he had twenty two. He was at least ran to every year, so fees in our time, guy gotta make round to a rear. Yet a fifty fifty plus whence and and make ran through. I don't know what they do. The poison gas thing, though, and I don't know like what say you in New Orleans and they call you like and they enjoy kind of tell they wouldn't mind. Haven't the this conversation, how nervous would you be about him physically trading really, especially if already of Zion of my team, yeah, daddy, thou, be your answer. We can't do you guys realise we desire to get a look at this. I thought huge this year is a huge went for LUCA, and I did worry last week
that clipper game. The awesome game for would be one of those games that, like a month later, but I was not great, I still feel, like that's gonna, be version of like guy I, m J is I give you my game now, I'm just sixty three point: eight, that that is iconic as that, but like that I am now in the map with a beggar thy game. Kirk gives us all run bigger deal this whole look, don't think it's fair Gibson, her eye, they get Is there a diversion of the sixty three point? Eight, where it's you set out? That was, the game is put at. He went on the map, but you're more inside the sixty three point, MJ gained than anyone, I've ever met my entire life, because I think that forty nine point gave was just as good the game. He would have one game he would. He basically has the same. Gay Mitchell didn't have to offer times what we were doing: the relaunch of bull series, every
bill and I would text back and forth. I will let you do this listless. Let's do it. Eighty six celtics game: let's do the bulls. Sixty people you're like a lost dad. I think ok, but that's that's iconic and they brought about this game like now. We're gonna do this one attack the next week. Will it what about this one? Now we do this. When I was a guy, you know what I've learned that we're gonna do this bill. It's the bill, summits part cast, we're not do in the sixty three point. Can we I thought you liked most of the choices I like most, the choices I just heard early in the process that I'm just gonna say. Yes, I was lost. Sixty three point games a little over see I just you just have already lost hated the mass when that serious now, but they want that game. They want the cool look again. What's let's go to the biggest question the packages Rockets Lakers? Who do you really,
For me, who do you route for who does right? Reseller you? Don't you don't gamble deep down? You you get attached to certain players, certain storylines! You try to be objective but there's that ten percent sports Fan year, like I'm kind of room for this day, my doubts coopers deep down your for. Look, I gotta be allowed me more fun of Lucca. Wins you don't really care right or Lakers Rockets rocket, some, probably your lease favorite basketball, godly. Five? Don't you I don't know, there's nothing like the eighties that you hated before I got to know you. I don't know why I will use the screen, but here and there, Lakers urges the Lakers it's just fund to refer them to do bad. They who you really
Mr De Haiti, MR four or five overhear lenders. Baby. Probably there isn't any probably about it. I did a whole segment on this last year. I just said hey for all those times. We think somebody doesn't like your team, I'm just telling you I don't like your team, I can respect Euston. I liked Antonia Electoral. I respect were hardened. Does I'm not gonna. Keep doing this, I mean if you like, I do this every single week I will be. I will be all acres, I'm gonna, ask Genie bust him. Meet up a minute beach I'll, be like eight. Where we go in for the game. Was last year, the boys, I see you I shall end on Caruso, like you just get to imitate being Laker fan next Yom. It does not have underrated Caruso as ominously Caruso, you don't see it in the stats which actually things come true at sea is already happening. Undertake coups Cosmo these more time with this group cover the eight hour in any item that I believe that in citizen J Smith and waiters, or why shall say you have you have no idea, their ceiling as a lot higher than others in what what what happens? If we get Rondeau back and no
her chair. Waiters, you gotta, do the thing like hey may don't be surprised if they still again? Yes, absolutely waiters, git! You too, he's not afraid wages and only two eight, I am there. You don't have to do I'm having a stick of Brandon Ingram pretend he was this good, the whole time and allay Zalm August. We had some people about the palate, and go Ingram was always this good I'll say quite actually did want to play with abroad. What else could I do Oh, you can carry one of our tracks he could do and of our and crutches that we're gonna go do later. People realise how good Dwight was. Dwight has been way better than we ever thought. He was going to be we how we have held a hearing his uncle software used everywhere. Disagree had waited. Do hack it away when he's out there in the lake or feds lives. There might be but always energy, zero baby thought I was gonna, be a zero or maybe it of negative ten and its at least a fifty for his minutes for Dwight. Yes,.
He's been competent, but he's donors Light Howard, I'm not sit, but whatever it is like to. Why couldn't be Dwight, he can be annoying disruptive twice as one he accepted it and because Lebruns there so that we have on time the three rads left. Is there still a couple? What exit the dynamite haven't you haven't? Beaten clippers you have, is your Lakers best. Five push comes to shove here, the five guys that they have to play with their backs to the Wall cause. I don't even know if they know what it is. Yet all the closing group when they go small, is eighty Leubronn, Pope Caruso Coups, my right and then, if David, is that a five that wins the title? I have some bad numbers for you. I mean there's ideas, because if I can believe how much Caldwell Pope was. There really can. He is the basically their water maker and everyone around. He does ok, but it's just like you to think,
he's not going to rear its ugly head. That's as we get to nut crunch of time here in these last two rounds potentially like. I just don't know how to trust that guy No, I mean eighty was there You wanted in the mid range stuff that we thought was a problem in some of the shooting in a bubble made every single mid range shot against Portland. He was incredible. Libraries have bad. Two games is forest. Sandpoint NEWS, eleven eighteen, ten at one thousand two hundred and fourteen and nineteen, so he was perfect again, but when I went to the top five guys in minutes, top six like Pope was it in again this is five games, but at least it forty percent of his threes against Portland about yet he he was like at these guys were so below the baseline efficiency that you'd want for players. He was bad whose moon was bad. Danny greens been kind of a mess and Caruso is not an office of player at all I mean he just isn't. He did a really good job against a pick and roll
as the primary defender on the guard on the figure on some of the status of those numbers are pretty good, but the closing unit for them. Yeah and I actually think that they would like the chair. Smithing, isn't working at all there are no signs in all other than it ever has been good for two years ago? What the hell are they thicken? With that? What I'm trying to think like Danny Green to see I'm trying to remember I think I'd really not as the green eyes to be out there. When we get to know question time should cause he's done it so many times called what purpose the guy would not trust and against Portland. Your call by popular like this is great. They ve got her zonia. I know a better that guy yeah, wouldn't when you go minutes, Danny Green was was actually and minutes, but some of the minute stuff of Portland me once you figured outlay, hey, portly, can't really Gardner body. This thing is over last night was: was a tie night for everybody who had hold had held onto the salmon stock relay it there.
The little like a ruddy ready boob were come up since I've ever had Simon Buzz there as they. There is even some of this part of the guys. I don't like that. I I think I just got a silence and then it's like wow. Here's this moment it here, dames, Dames, God its silence, tat. Then you actually got that ready. Maybe some I would like her you right now with observe her zone. You were traded celtics. Would you become a net spam? I just think This'Ll be has on his eyes basque about him. He asked to get Europe has to fulfil its destiny, in Greece there is always something like that. That was amazing how much they needed Carmelo just not lose by forty every game like he played real benefits in Cardiff and sincerity, no other place, he would have had any would have paid Carmelo for one minute.
Then people live where Carmel Israeli proved that its again he proved he could be a mediocre guy and apply after him, but he's just old. It's you know is what it is I ate I admire that he was in there and made a couple big shots and stuff like that. But when he's guarding like Le Brian, the Brown must have thought it was like this is the greatest round when he ever could had they have gaddi guarded by Carmelo Anthony. I started to Lenny below Braun love for mellower. It's it's, this legal Braun. When you are the focal point of all of this criticism in all these topics, and then you you become. Inherently heritage like dismiss it. Anything lebruns been doing this for years. Lotta guys quarterbacks! Do this all the time where if you were to sail abroad like Florida, Ford is gonna of coastline, and he would say you lot Everglades Lot Everglade. So to be like what I like what he talked about, and so
mellow. This whole thing was a win for mellow because it just became overnight that he couldn't play like he wasn't good enough to playing an mba game, any prove that that was never the case, but it was always bout, fit hey when you come in here. Are you going to accept a role or you gonna, be disruptive and then once well had other injuries to the wings and engage guys opt out and they were like desperate to keep the guy round to give him buckets, but blah it just funny. Very Funny Leubronn observation that he was after the fact like mellow, mellow mellow and you guys and mellow mellow insight dude, you could add mellow and your team for two years for years ere you did so your leg, way: station for firm, almost washed up, NBA stars Bell.
Was the one that you over the last four years here like air, get kind of weird. Let's do announcing crutches, so I've noticed the two best NBA announcing crutches. Are people don't realize that that that or this guy doesn't get enough credit for that data, so its use Jason stadiums? Defence? As an example. Anyone who watches basque by the sheer does that Jason Tatum is an excellent defender now, in fact, this is why I made him second team Ba, but then you watch these games and the answers and I know be any crew at some point. Tatum will do something incredibly on defence
and NL immediately get tee. This guy doesn't give credit for its defence or people don't realize how good Jason Tatum is defence with these days. So I just think we should take some stuff off the table. For these announcing crutches stadiums, defence, you no longer allowed to say that people are realised is get a defence, the bronze passing. We know the bronze that amazing passer. Please don't tell me that that Leubronn does it get enough for first passing. He led the way get assistance share. We always get passer doc. Rivers, is coming out of a time out. He doesn't give credit for how good he is coming out of whatever actually think he gets too much credit they get through. The other way is overrated underrated there they were always gonna, be no matter. Why? There's always gonna be a slight hesitation with you on Doc. I just
how'd you like that he gets enough credit. I like that Rivers Dwight Howard's hands. Does he like you PETE prominent people, don't realize how good Dwight Howard's hands are badly. They realize who's the second best, where the league two thirds eleven. People realise- and it has again of credit brick Lopez's defence is give credit. Fire with these figures are really really guarantee Fettes, to say I'm ready to table those? You have anything else ya. You get a couple did you know that Dwight, Howard and Josh Smith play day you together? People realise that one was a big one, the other. What am I all time? Favorites different sport is Clayton. Kirshner Matthew Stafford play together high school. That one has just been absolute beat.
Hope about people realize what a good offices where the month is a bonus is turned into. I really thought about that. One should angel bothering you where he made the asked our team. I think people realize it now really get people realise how crafty gorge ravages. He doesn't give credit for it, I have a bigger one: is just Willard being underrated, acknowledged these the third best point out he's definitely properly rated. At this point, yeah I mean he was so underrate for so long. You just go what what do you want? You got it. You have to have more than sort of a weird western conference finals, appearances actually pretty good compared to some other guys, but this that one and we are
Very pro lived on this, but in a million years I don't think anybody takes him over Hardener Currie, just payment. I just don't think you do people. I realize what a good defensive, where three Davis's that one's insane means only been this good for this long can switch and everything people were realised. How passionate coming at its night I people blown other wherever it is from Indiana and had a growth spurt I'll. That's another good one. The gross birthing. Of the honest people realise when the bucks drafted interview six, you know we do that's why when we we, we know that he said Fetnah items defences the funniest went to me. I would say you wanted the the four best wing defenders at his position now Epipolae put: do you have like a White Board in a were in a shared out back were,
yeah white boards, like a few little mind, just Russell Simmons over here where here you're, just where the fuck do you keep track of your youth my time force at I just her, but what about I'm not, he would say it is not possible, but how I want to know how you came to that conclusion with three windows. There's do you like? More than Jason Tatum right now, Hawaii Kauai, one Ben Simmons. I prevents him it's over, probably been Simmons. I still love dream on. Yet you dream, and I don't even know what position he has anywhere, that treatments he's doing, Bissell, like personality thing that we signed with CNN. He killed it on TNT like he's starting to that Berkeley Corner he's starting to lie it. I think, starting to look he's starting to get it in now. For fur, when five years ago, people don't realize how how good a talker dreamer
This Michael kids, you never met before people realise that, after after his careers over he's, gonna have a lot to say. No, no he's been pretty talkative, he's been pretty talkative. We're gonna take a break and come back the second a you can add. A little excitement is for buses and a bed all the action on Fan dual sports book. It's the number one sports but gap and with good reason, now normally be looking at the weak one odds and telling you which gains job Let me, but you know what sound I do. Guess the lions every week on Sunday starting heading into that football weekend? Here's thing on that cheating withstand

I found those number in sports book app download the vandals sports began to get started, be sure to set up a promo code be ass, so they know. I say that is vandals sports book, Promo Code B. Ass.

I credit that expires and fourteen days restrictions apply, see full terms at sports book that followed
ganley problem call when it Andrew Gambler West Virginia aid. And remember that NET India, at one hundred and with the Colorado one eight hundred five, two to forty seven hundred, I weird question Priscilla: should they have tweet these play off rules, a tiny bit in the bubble to her have more of a home court advantage because you are said to run a Boston game today and you think wow this. This could have worked out for the South ex better just from a pure ask about standpoint. Normally go to Toronto, weird place. The boy a lot of noise took place to winter on a super comfortable. Their neared cite the bubble, your plane, the Toronto sign. The center. We ve noticed over the first three weeks. I was thinking leg, even if they had said the haunting got the ball. Every quarter. Even that's better than what they have now which are taken that you have to take
Take us. Usually it starts with. Why do we have to always tweak everything here? And I know it isn't fair, I mean but fair hold. The whole thing is hey guys. It's not gonna be ideal, and when you started about guys being there two plus Monson and especially renew happened. None of it is ideal, I'm ok with that by possession, but I think the real problem do you just do it by seeds? Okay, so if you're the higher seed, you get the possession of time, because there is also some teams if at least view gone back to beginning the plants where you may be the five seed, but your game behind the for seed, where Then there's other teams are separated by more games. So again, if it was just a possession thing Where are you so our Dorothy at home court? I only home yeah,
write your home courts. That means for those games one until you get. I'm ok with that, but I feel like the NBA was a little concerned with. How much can we really do stuff? It's never been done before to try to make up for what's really a sacrifice for everybody. What about the five radius fans from the home court teams fan base gets to sit behind the road team. Spanish turn the bubble, so they Boston games three and four now bring in mirth and in the J bug, we just put him right behind, they can still get kicked out like it's real game, the wary mass now I just think you're asking for fights, disguise or so boring Every time you have my orders, have you noticed how much like Patrick, Beverly and Russell Westbrook there, like the sixth man right now in some of these games before Westbrook, came back and play
Beverly. There was a call with dontage, threw the ball at the ref. What you did and Doncic of the shoes complainer deserve the technical throne of the Kennedy. Beverly was already on the court. It was almost like he anticipated it so addicted that part of the arena has been so active. Cuz Many guys are so bored that it would get way worse, because if you want to five guys heckling, a team, you can't feel you can't like cannot hide out with the other. Sixteen Diane people Well, at the very least that did you have others, I should think Really, that's all I got. I don't know what else you could really do. I mean they're they're doing all they do the queues Home TEAMS games. So it makes you feel like it too. Little more familiar when your home, but really it there's no way to advantage here and I think for terror. Now that you know I'd be bombed out a faster, like I'm down one, nothing in the series boss tends in control. I think it's a week
match up for Toronto anyway, which were about the two to talk about, but you know, I think, for them specifically It is really gonna, hurt them and I think it's gonna hurt blocky two against Miami because Aki really. You know. Turn it out at home and they got a lotta energy from that crowd, especially Vienna. My aim is aware team. You know that they are there that team that could just makes contain threes in any game. So at the same time, I like it, because this is the most organic who has a better team situation we ve seen from Uclaf standpoint, but issues where at the regular seized in his men. So little did you think, especially we had bought one sees loose in the beginning, but also we have. We had the clippers well split with Dallas before they are eliminated, and it was something was brought up was that we always hear this about role, players, right role, players and plan. Aims disappear or you will have a moment, but you can't really count on and because the plants it's entirely different because the setting the backdrop
and then we started here. Well, you know what it's easier issue with these backdrops. It's not a big arena. Ok totally by that there is no real pressure on it. But when I heard that being brought up more and more especially after just the opening couple games of the playoffs yeah, I just I couldn't help it pushed back on case. It does that mean everything we ve seen as a lie. Does it mean that everybody tat wisest closer and it's just that the superstars are better dealing with circumstances doesn't make any sense movement, size, shooting skill. All of these things are real, like I think, the real from the years of watch these games in a normal settings, but we are desperate for some sort of conclude in two why the play I started out the way they did and guess what we got. Portly can't play defence. The clippers are better than the man's, especially without some guys. You know Milwaukee isn't day there ready to forfeit game against Orlando. They still accurate sheets three to so. It didn't really gotta play out the way. I think some were searching for some new outcome. That at least you know after waiting was what do you think
in round one. What do you think the most glaring of this was All this would really help the same situation, because, even though Boston was better than fairly- and I still think phillip- who were rolled over. I still think filling a game through with their backs the wild down to nothing with that crap. It could have on the way right, the crowd could a lifted them or that crap could turn on them in the second quarter. But I I just think that Philly Crowd and games three four would have been so much more profoundly impact full for better or worse for that six or saint cause. If they're down three nothing and game for they're getting boot that whole game. So we we missed out on that too. We must have had some of the bad stuff yeah, it's it's too, It says you re on Philly, thereby game three. They were incredible at home this year, Yang Insane Record and you like their chances, but the end game. She without Simmons is probably what Hell's run this team look at these bad contracts went by Brian Fire, so I still think we got the king,
vision to the Sixers part of his story. There was probably gonna happen if we aigrettes serves what about Lakers game. One. I think it would have been hard for port led to win in away, especially when they haven't really had an important way of game in what eight years the death I go to bed and energy for their first game, they go to bed knots portals out when enacting the ever read tough poor, Portland we'll talk about them later. I won't talk about the south excuses. It was an impressive job by them. Today I think there were some mismatches and advantages in their favour. That I know both of us felt like were existed for them at Zack picked on the wind Seven, I think the wings and and the fact that Campbell look better and the fact they could kind of survive with Casal out there, which is certainly did today. I was thinking the big picture.
Is the first time I started to allow myself to think like man. Could they make the files lake? I'm not saying they're gonna beat around on that jinx again and that do not stop ages. Think like our aim to get through this, then what happens in and I was thinking big picture, its weirdly their best window. To actually win the title over the next three years, and you wouldn't think that, because tatum- young brown young, the whole thing baby, look at their salary cap situation, where they're not gonna, be a better place, would have that Heyward salary cap spot, as even if he option for next year, It's basically this year and next year. For that Tatum, they're gonna have to pay so they're gonna. Be it a point. Tatum brown combat those eyes are going to be the entire sata cap. Did Have any of these draft picks left that they knew there again that Sacramento pick a year and a half Then you they're gonna Memphis, pick last year. Now now it's kind of circle. Back to you know they don't have this awesome pick
every year that they can at least shop. That's gone, then you think in the east you ve got no to and in Brooklyn that's change. Next year, You have malarkey who's, gonna have home corridor next year, Indiana Sue. I dont think either of us feel like has hit his peak as up where you have Philly, whose nightclub as much of a mess as they were this year. Next year you have the Lakers in the papers, have been together for a year. Now, though, just have you know, or a more of a team kind of thing. Then you have LUCA and Jana, so we're going to the two most important guys in the league they're going to be better next year. So we know weird way. This is kind of a nice window for the cell and I dont know if the window is gonna be as juicy is right now the whole court of in make sense, it makes a lot of them he started. I went ok, we go and then I gotta be that you did it even I landed the way you did golden state past
let alone stay right in its. I think. No one forgets the written career on Brooklyn, but it doesn't feel real until we actually get to see those guys in durrants argument of S player in a league. So you go away, like whatever it is. It's going to look good, it's just a matter of. Did the Kyrie part of it work which you know whatever I have my battery place on, that The only thing that would change that is that Philly could conceivably be worse. Maybe there's better version of Miami in another year, two, but a meaningless bam, takes it to cooperate, you'll all star in a third team. All NBA type of stuff is much. We love band. Is you take at that level, and here I think here on Robinson accuracy that be better next year, will they should be met. I could be better, but the Toronto thing, because events and how much he's gonna get paid at another pull out off, or at least you know a year later. The only thing that Say I let me just try to count as I agree with you, I actually the more I think about it. The only
Push back so would have. Is that if Tatum ascends the where we think he could go losing Heyward, I'm not feeling that slot, maybe they'll a cake, Tatum implicit baby. That's, alas, rest like he can may be, carry a team for an entire series. The best version attentive and even that doesn't feel, is locked in all time. One of your sleep stop right in that wouldn't be for a year, because it the reason I was think about it. I was thinking about the two thousand twelve season, which has some similarities to this, isn't where you had the condense reg season in the playoffs and yet a big injuries and and some other things, an ok, see just kind of the said they in the files and I'll send their taken see we're like, while their windows now and then dating back there, and you just never know it the leaks It's better recurrent theme on this package. That's for sure you between injuries, cap, some team Giles together, some team self distracts they eat, seems take all right now.
And you know you go forward a year. I don't know if the east is going to be that pet that take while I think Boston will be better, because they're younger players should get better but there there I mean that broken team did that's like a contender that is just gone this year in May and the upside of they have some trade pieces. There could be a Katy, Tiree, Third star kind of MEG. Team thrown together that I'm fearful of zoonotic Andre Jordan. Now that that the answer his is that the guy then Milwaukee whatever they do? You know like it. If they fell short this year, there they'll do something they already. Would this be the Chris Paul thing that we revisit after the season where I didn't really ever think use can be treated before the season just because of a number but would Milwaukee is and I'm not going to say it's the same thing, because I trust Milwaukee ownership more than I trust Cleveland Ownership but Cleveland for years. Every single,
every off season and basically every tree deadline trying to convince the broad we're gonna do everything and ultimately, what they did was made it harder to make the team better. So they made minimal improvements that were going to lead to long term. Problems and you wonder it like. Let's say Milwaukee loses to Miami. I thought I mean. I don't think it's impossible. I have seen plenty people, I am here, I whatever you you're, going to be one of them had about it in about twenty minutes. So if that were to happen, it is does the front office say we need to be bold, and maybe really really take a swing it it's funny. I know you have this happen, you but you'll talk to teams that are stagnant and that are bored and they'll say there were kickin this around right, like Westbrook was one of em. Where you go, do we just say fuck it, Do it because you know we're not that interesting, we're not breaking up anything, that's gonna go any. I do Stuart, and the answer like ninety nine out of a hundred times is now worth it
yeah, you don't leave. You really know you ever. We know it's in the last five years. I think it's because contracts got shorter and cause of other player movement and its age of permanent every off season. There is multiple huge moves in that That brings me back to this. Does Boston point like I know is, I know it. The league is right now and the EAST seem super winnable and I watched the west. The Lakers they figured it out against Portland eight. I kids TAT Houston series which roll top Add a little bit later in the podcast. Is such a bizarre series. They cannot be happy about it and then the clips, when quite playing like that he's the best part in the playoffs. Still, it's still a team feels like it's feeling each other out in a lot of ways. Even today in game six Doncic, all the sun gets hot and you're like oh, my god. This is going to go seven hundred percent trust them so to the Boston point like they're two.
Short there still want to make our you got you had. Robert waves was all over the map. He missed at least seven defensive. You see there lay down a rotation as in the wrong spot, but then he'll do a couple other thing, I think Brad is just like this. Guy will do five good things and for bad things were still plus one in the good bad thing thing. But though the water maker, Adsum classics today be yet Embrowned Camper is he is, is? Is that the best big three left? Woe who's got a better third, and I remember the Lakers have the best who right I'm SAM S, three who's got a better third encumber I'll Westbrook harden Jeffrey. Yeah fuck it, sir you're, no dollar bay on this, the stateless stay on this it is. It is a clay staff and dream on on talk about teams left in the play. Finally, I just run it through
I had right now I mean it's, not ok, see it's not you toss! Third guy, it's certainly not Denver stirred guy. It's not my Mr Guy dragging Bam in Butler clippers. You could say hair all Louisiana they're, not as good as cannot arrow heralds. Everybody's gonna probably lose on the third Portland Zau Milwaukee stirred guy. You know Take your pick is, I think one thing about Boston as apply to you is that they do they have the three they have. The best is forest, like the most reliable three yeah that'll be less crazy statement. Are we forgetting anybody cuz- I don't want to. I want to make sure we cover right now there were african anybody. I think what makes emanating Plath team is You're not gonna, have all three of those guys disappear in the same game. You know we when you have three and I think the coopers- let's say Campbell is on the coopers and you know who I was not going to disappear, pretty much every time and apply of game, but if he d
that big, the Campbell wrinkle, which, as you know, I guess Louie Aims- would be that this conversion akimbo in some ways, but I what struck me two days, I dont even feel like the Celtics played that amazing they got great shots. I thought there was a world in which say actually could have played like twenty percent better that fund Toronto. Come he added a game on terrified by the shots. Boston got every, It was great them is so many lapse and little forefathers around the wind. They missed wide, open shots left right then Toronto ozone own and it's a guide. This is working for two minutes and then I'll send it wasn't anymore. Why, like? What adjustments? Do you make? A few? Rather what do you do? Well, the biggest thing into the series which I wish, I had studied a little bit more prior Sundays pod. But you know everything was gonna, be all over the place was that Tehran as the number one transition offence in India, but they're going up against the number five transition? Defence?
You could even see on Lowry, drive to Suffolk, VA and bleed. It was almost like the mini Giannis walk. It was talk about the Giannis wall. You could see Boston in transition trying to cut that off, because when you look at Toronto's half court numbers- and these are pretty significant. If you go there, half points per possession and just half court. Okay, so not talk. Transition. Half court sets Toronto sixteenth in points for recession, according to synergy cleaning, the glass, the cleans up those numbers a little bit takes out garbage time. Yeah a and then there's another site. That's PPP stats where there should following a dead ball, so an impound Toronto, they set up the hack half office there. Twenty fourth in the NBA points per one hundred action, so their essentially a bad Halfscore office of team to view is Boston. Who's been,
really solid all year in transition defence, and I think, even for a series. Brad gets these guys attuned up even more and we're talking about Tatum defences, incredible defensively, even though here just lost our offensively. His defense was awesome. Smart. Makes a million little place. Yes, he drives me crazy, but there's a million little play they're. Just other guys have no interest. Don't even dare not even aware that you allowed to do those things. Ok get and then you have jail and who has the size and the athleticism hang was indifferent people. So if I'm terrain, no and I go. We are about transition offence and we beat all the bad teams were average against five hundred tease Basa was in great against seems over five hundred said about the same there but without hate with Heyward, I loved Boston and this match up without him. I reluctantly pick Toronto and I'm not trying to freak out about game one big,
We both know the shooting side of it. Boss is going to shoot that well Marcus, Smart, like a light year from three tomorrow, so I can shoot this poorly, but the transition part of this matchup favors Boston all the time, so they can make serenity half court team. Should what do you have on have two you have to smaller guards in art really or DR guys. There big pass guys their big set screens, but neither a Bachar means role, so that means you have to just gonna stay out incontestable or two on the drive. And it really comes down alike. Are they gonna? Let's see outcome, go and try to create off the dribble, which I still don't necessarily Think, even though we sought a lot last year, but when complies none of the court with you having cr can be the focus of the office, a kind of trouble driving create and his and even though the numbers are ok, that's opera So that is why all of these different things in their first game, I thought that was thrown its biggest mistake today,
when they, when they were really trying to establish the outcome on the low postal fight that I was delighted as a Celtics fan, but please do that. The stuff I'm worried about is all like the high screen stuff with your guards and as is wearing down Canada over and over again, and you dont Van, we backer high screens that fight that we're just like putting miles amber during the series you personally icon we can handle that one, an ombudsman, I just don't think he's that good of it off and support. I think he's good, but he's not good enough to, like you know, take it the town against Boston wings on the local I don't understand that IRAN, then they kind of they figure. The game when alone, but then they couldn't make a three and you know it's have to react. When a team does ten four already on three, but on the other hand, Boston really and play without what year they went. Seventeen for thirty nine from through defence is really good deeds. Scared. They list a lot of stuff around the rib I felt like I gave away a lot. I did you hear that
and I thought they got good looks, but they were closing which has taken was missing. Lapse like these lies very fat. Potass must at least three or four, apps jail may miss the now. You want to meet other days three things blocked as usual want to make it look like you, don't wanna be out there they, but that's what happens with that's. Why you're back up released in the regular season? The robber Williamson was funny because we first came any MRS toolbox threes immediately and I thought Brad was gonna, call a time out and go hate time, Lord and then a search to become a second rob. This is Serge he makes us what it ass he came makes he's been killing the south expert ten years for several days work. It's busted! I just want you to say hi to real quick. Can we go back to the outcome thing though, because are you you sound too critical of em? I just don't think he's like a superpower that offers a planning is a good, often somewhere, but to me it would be like if Boston,
when it says there isn't like we're going to post up Jaylen Brown and black. Why? Why are you doing that? That's that's he's! Not that guy he's. He is the guy that he's been. You know he's transitioned. Three guy he's wide open three guy. He said him a screen and he keep curls off goes to the baskets up at that, but why you post them off- and I know that's Ronald friends by Nonono Siakam posts up, but if you're the Celtics, that's like at the light, if they're doing that, you can you have so many guys? Who can defend us Yahkuk type? Yet I will him I just couldn't. I just wouldn't do that in No, he tailed off and you were talking use twenty three again this year in you mentioned, either on my potter, what we needed, the Roger part, one of a mere talk about I was shots, went down as being wheat is bandwidth. Usage rate went up stuff right that I just don't think he's in a led off supplier, I think, is a really good offensive. Bourbon at an off and suppliers are running
think through him at that was a really where choice. Now I'm criticising Nick there, so, I think, is the best coach. In the weeks I just wanna want to say that I'm not saying I know more than Nick nurse. I just think I think they miss played it. I'd think they thought could get an advantage added. I get him going in and if they fell in their face, how often do you think that we see stop? That may not make sense in the short term, but is part of a long term thing where it's like a sea optimism. Well, he shot at poorly and seating games. Thirty nine percent use forty two percent from the floor against Brooklyn thirty, one percent from three that ghostwriting going cunegonde yeah. You think that I need to do with it. Maybe I just think that's plan right into the south extracts. As you said, the transition defense Great and there really good at at defending swing men who posted that sites that I'm a week semi owned him.
You rightly couldn't move semi Ojo read. I mean this is the most valuable semi looked in a game in a year, their weaknesses combat defensively and the raptors I think, as is serious, go along, are just going to attack him their guards and just make him constantly have to do stuff defence when they want to make her to a lesser degree to, but I think of you, the Celtics, you know it such an interesting team. I was ready for two here conversation today about it with denounces then do it like cancer but that was really effective in the Philly serious issues out for the serious and Brad does that with them, where his again take the next year. Software wouldn't really need you for without through it's crazy. Kanner was huge the very serious and in a cup or the corridors, and now I guess they must be looked at like you. We don't want him. Twenty five food for the basket, he's not gonna play, but I do think that set of vantage for the South extreme, never weirdly malleable line up the penny and who their play
as one of the reasons that match apps favoured them against around. I thought I didn't this all, especially in the last seeding game. That was the game. Where I get excited about basic astronomer, let women a pic boss and picked bossin than just are losing the Heyward peace was with such a problem, because it is just another wing that could chased these guys around because they can start with them. They put you write about the camp of actively we expect more vehemently Toronto then went to bigs. Then they will again. It can we just go really big against Boston and every time he fell to products. I always feel like any team. That's halfway decent make some kind of neurons Higgins. Team down twenty, nor, like all my other credit to six public that actually, I feel like that happens more often than a dozen. But every time Tirana would crank up that pressure, that great pressure to start the third quarter defensively corner three jailing corner three camper corner: three: smart like ok, then they had a nice little pushed again worth if they get it the leg eleven and then they brought the pressure of time runs basin.
Finished with dung, and so the zone thing that he has being really excited about. There were two possessions: they ran a bee role of coming back from break really look at Nick Nourish thrown in the zone. I mean if a coach, icy, vibrant NBA coach, I would run a box in one like twice a game and intelligent for I want ran boxing. So that everybody Diver get like an Irene. Yes, we like ourselves willing to do anything. This fuckin guy box in one or two out of a hundred and ten percent. Yet a triangle to disguise unbelieving double the inbound, fuckin madman foot: he the zone. Didn't do I don't I didn't. I can't always keep track of exactly how many zone possessions or ARCA. Sometimes you think it is and that it is in the coach signal its outward doing, and they certainly no better than we do. But ties drop to pass entail lost dribble. It acts like it really didn't, have much to do with the zone and then, when they went with the bigs that didn't really do anything. I think it's two things like you said it's seeing a van fleet who was Tara.
He's your common Lowry were so below their standards. That debts is gonna, be fixed in the next game. Just will be. I have a theory, though I'll, throw you at the end of this sort of the attack and ably or excuse me vividly attacking, came by, and I expect that they may have moments where they belong to us all where they just say it, Let's go small and in let's see if we can out small, bore, maybe they're scared, the wings or flip side. I actually think they should post up CASA. They posted up once oh shit. I hope they don't start doing that. I dont know about him. Now, he's always he's always given the south problems in his bed. When is it good tat outer ten year back when I was in college?
but here I mean I would just go. I would rather go to him then see outcome and the low posting. This is my point: let's outlets cigarette, can I, before the break Kashmir question. I am sorry. I know how much you hate it when owner of the brakes, what if I throw a theory at you, get that is certain to upset or brethren to the north. Yet what? If Toronto Post CO, why regresses bat, the Toronto that was overwhelmingly disappointing in the play Us- and we just don't know it yet. Oh, like collide, was the kryptonite fur for that, but now this issue they are for the next twenty years trying to fit. Ok, they're, they're so site. They want the title there get. I don't know about it: Then it would be like when they have a winning pedigree. They understand it, but I mean this is a group with Lowry that was beginners. Different coach the path my head, I just wrote down. I meant to ask it to you, and I don't even think I believe it just some rather take a bit.

way to hire a month ago, Casey, Houston and their name is chances and ran to, I do want to say, was a tough break for ok, see because everything that happened in the bubble, Wednesday Thursday Friday had to happen. It should happen, but if you're talking about a team that was in better shape just basketball wise on Tuesday night than they were this weekend, ok, see because it bought Westbrook enough time to come back and I don't use it in a better spot. I'm saying ok, He is in a worse by because Westbrook came back and actually look pretty good and It's interesting. The line on that game on Tuesday night was four and a half years to by foreign. Have it on Saturday still four and a half, and I I just think Westbrook had to put forward a couple points, but the worst case thing that happened.
Fur, ok, seen that game was getting shrewder knocked out in the second half, because their biggest advantage was to do the three guard thing. When second remove that aim was over. Is there an adjustment you could see them making in game six earth? Did they shoot their water Yes, they cannot have Lou door, be their primary offensive weapon. Every time he's out there a disobedient uneasy when he shot out. Now, I'm about to undergo off your little bit because Oklahoma Cities officer approaching game. Five is one of the dumbest executions of a game plan or lack of a game plan or lack of adjustment that I can remember seeing now. Yes, their bad teams that get blown out the play ass. You say they suck that day. Ok, that's fine, but as far as expectations with smart team, the team that's played well in big spots. Phallic. They figured some stuff out against usin what they did in gain five. Is I don't wanna, say disgusting, I don't assails offended by it, but I just I couldn't
I'm still here removed from it a day later, dumbfounded that a team would allow that to happen. Ok, hey guess what I mean: it's essentially like. Ok, what are they doing? Ok, they're they're leave door. Open them Ok! Well, we going to shoot nine times in the first quarter. Lou door is gonna, shoot nine times in the first quarter. He's gonna start over seven over sixty three well, Guess we lose hurt ass gonna lose because we're because it wasn't just a door. It was taking the open shot. It's that he was taking some threes academic, three or four from other game, was still kind of in the balance where he was taking. Would like fifteen seconds or more left on the shock clock. He is now sixteenth under sixteen percent from ray he has. The highest volume of three point shot attempts of any player, the thunder in the series, despite the fact he's now. Sixteen under sixteen percent can lie there at his five for thirty two for three in the cities. So, ok, so guess what Euston is gonna leave him?
when she you need a figure, something out whether you mess up your shooter rotation and bringing earlier, or you have door, YO, YO, some in just a very different way, just a couple times to mix it up like that. I think this is something that so overlook or coaches is Houston. Does a good job of this aid, the hard things getting low stagnant? Let's do some different. Let's have Jeff Green, bring the ball up and we can have hardened me greener and then we're just going to mess up like what you're used to seeing with us and just show you something here different and it may have a lasting impact if I'm Billy Donovan, I probably take George out for like a weird substitution at nine minutes. If he's already over, from three and go. You know, let's just do something replied in a different look, because then, if we want to bring door back, funded by the way door. Wasn't exactly lighting up harden cause harden was killing them, you like hand. Mr shot had twenty points like that. That's a key point, though I wasn't even saw and heard down the game, so it was in. It was indeed after you lead him to continue
shoe and here's another think like Deniro Stunk, Chris Paul took off the first half a game for, but close so well, and I like twenty two in the second half a game for that big come back. He wasn't rate the no sugar. The problem. She was drawn. The ball, like literally punting it out about so guilders Alexander, had like one of the worst games ever seen him play again. I'm just mention one more time in yellow, went from twenty nine points and game, one to one point: game five, but Stephen Adams usage rate and sometimes because their lineups, but he gets a couple touches early and then they never go to him. But he's he's sneaky disappointing in that he forgets. How big is he plays small sometimes like he's this big New Zealand guy with his huge family, and he sees tactful an ox in New Zealand during the quarantine and we're like big bad ass, Stephen Adams, unknown ever fight like him, then play like it he place. Oft he's one of those guys. You almost data The series where the other team as an awesome centre,
an attitude just saying by this with them for a serious like this, I just don't know what his role as Pj Tucker go to stirred file, and we know it ain't like the caucus PA spirit, it mpg leaves the game and the next possession after a dead ball. It's like what you get Adams deep on a seal or her ain't gonna go blocked a block on a screen, so he can get a deeper catch. You just do a different action to test them out now that PJ's out of the game and door takes a three, and so that was we're a team that I have and I'm not look? We both picks used to do we baltic use, and I know I picked Houston. It was shot him as a at infiltrated I just thought it was the best part in the series spheres So I found taken investor fine. All this is is a moderate expectations about the thunder connected with great great basketball team, but I think, or I thought they were smarter than this and what they did in game. Five:
I can't do this very luggage bill. I guess I just I'm. I'm dumbfounded. I sat there in silence for ten minutes after the game. We look what the fuck did you just let happening you and they could. Alas, came three. It was basically one place a really like I don't know you look at the numbers two in. I don't know where I, where we can see goes their waste, be shooting thirty. There shouldn't thirty percent from three. The only the only real positive from them are federalist again in the line more than Houston, but I just think you, since better and I think he knows there better, and this will lead to the Cross Party the summer. Because it the only way to improve the ok seating himself, a move in the summer. You use
of said about the free through disparity after game. For put it was like you took fifty eight threes, the good. What do you expect you snack? She got to the hoop at will and then your heart and get a couple calls earlier. So I think that freaks you out of your door as a defence supplier, where you think like hey, maybe if I get away with a couple things in harden, is going to be his tempted to drive at me the Westbrook angle, I'm not surprised, Leyden move because the West report. This was like the most the eighth most significant thing that happened in the game like he ran around. He look. It's it's hard to ever think that he looks wrong athletic league. Is he still such a specimen? But rusty and he was ok, wasn't gray, but it didn't even factor and any this it's time that it Santa officially talk about it you miss him is, is almost he's. Basically, sixteen and seven in this series he's taken. Seven three is a game shooting forty seven
sent from three living with a personal stylist man Houston in he has to point to assess which is close to his play off high for a season. This is a guy. The people are given credit for how much he's bound to read. I doubt because every everything is so positive. I would love your check. Green yeas, been Thirty, eight teams paper I M of credit, for what it's like to move is taken a little bit from each system in right now. Things a pain in the ass, you get to change the names and the bills you gotta, find new friend Yet if I knew restaurants I ask you a bigger truck. Indeed, I can indeed it subject to square footage ago, yet need different airport you gotta get is that Cuba can shift of credit. I can't wait till the next time in answer says that people- I don't check my twitter, but you you, people, gonna, hit twitter replies for Rousillon and send us whenever this happens there, because we don't get enough credit for when we point out stuff like this, this Jeffrey.
They now if they didn't. I just pick him up off the waiver where they didn't trade. Anything for an idea, you just for you to sign such available he's also one of those guys, you think he's like forty and is only thirty three because he's better, four hundred years and it feels like when he was on those Georgetown teams. If I feel like that was a million years ago, but I can't overstate how good he's been since he joined the Rockets and that's it I'm not going to trust that he's one of my most frustrating Celtics, probably of my life time, is my dad, his favorite south of the past decade, but he's doing everything you never want from Jeff Green in the irony. Is they really needed a guy? Who does the things that he does, that kind of hybrid stretched to restrict, for I can grab a rebound on decent athlete? I can make threes, I can run the floor. I can fill the lane all the things, the good version, Jeffrey
does on paper who inspired us to do this Ringer video, where you, if you could look at our Youtube chain? Oh it's a support. Group You don't want to give up. Our guys in your guy was Jeff Greed everyday. This hope the video about how ridiculous it is this one fucking Those who will give up on Jeff Green ha ha now. He is the second best rocket until Westbrook Cider percent, how the fuck does this big sets bigger? Are you talk in December? He saw TAT day right. They would love him right now, the Celtics they would give him a three year extension. If this They were getting out of em right now. Imagine him giving this kind of production are part of. It is always been the skill, that's why people frustrated you, this big he can handle. He can pass now I do think that there is a rule kind of like Cinderella once the clock strikes, one fifty nine left in the game. Some happens Kay. TAT, like there's a two minute thing with Jeff Green, where that's gonna, how ill judged and players we like. Ok, that's a nice three that made it
whatever it is it to forty left for you gonna make that shovelled one forty and make the job for his. Excepting a spell Langley comes in and says, Jeff Green, there's, two minutes left in the game and exact Gaza, not alarm sets going off his head. I gave their fuckin some stuff up. It's never been, I you know I've. Almost I'm trying to think of like acquainting, your group of friends were your constantly like. Why do we hang out with the sky TED's? a land and then your July Fourth weekend, you're you're did some. Like a new England. You know you're, like some stretch like unto it will take a new poor in own Nantucket Vineyard, who know HANS. I don't care whatever you want to call it, and he let you know TAT, has a boat look, what TED as a fuckin bow, and then you have this epoch,
you watch the fireworks. It's like one of the art. You bring your boat, the marina you're waiting. You go out that night and then you're like you, know, tat all right and then the next week you go. You know, that's not even TED's bow, he stole it and there worn out for rest and we're all now accomplices and you go, we can hang out with you. Like six months later, he's like air, I have tickets to Daytona I'll, never forget! Tommy Heights and compare Jeff Green to James Worthy that time, which time he did for an entire season, I gotta say my career. He reminds me a James worthy then it was but that there was the ceiling of Jeffrey because he would have these games rehab, like thirty seven
Yet this is what is he's back? Don't go for somebody hit that that's what makes him so fucking frustrating, but I wonder what this Houston team, it so chaotic and so weird and so different that maybe it almost reprogrammed Jeff Greens brain. So he feared it. It's like all. The baggage is gone now, cause he's playing this sport that doesn't resemble the other eight teams that he's been on and the situation is better It's almost like a blank slate, so possible effect memento. I dont know there's nobody ever Dear London momentum. So do I? member yeah. I know I have a lot of Jeff Greens. Brain is just blank now, because the rackets weirder system has just like. Diffuse them? So, at the beginning of the movie and he's like what yours I drafted re with member, when I was
Meet the written Westbrook, where the big three ways for those that Hitler, Utah Memphis, ok, see, Boston or Lando, any justly wire. All these cities on my right forearm. The funny thing is: he has had some decent It's you know like it engaged or seventeen a game and then yeah you're talking the calves in buying seventy women Boston. Here the results of that Weird South extend without carried it. Take the final cost, Jeff Green, the brand needed anybody to be the second best guy for him. Jeff Green reside, I'm the most disappointing pair of of any top five ladder pick up my generation whose actually had a decent career I'll step up. I got you I'm gonna be your James worthy for this. What game, but even like when he was on the south eggs? He had the hidden, hard issue so miss that year, which I think really they trade Perkins form then he's out. But then he had to play a friend with the Celtics where, where he was really good one year for the South X, it yeah was
team when they lost to the necks and he average twenty a game and that play officers. So he said, he's had these flashes and at some point there did no punchline, but for his career is sixteen. A game is by nine hundred. Nay, games is a career forty four percent sure I don't know I just I've, stop trying to figure out a while ago. I don't understand it There's anyway to understand it and that's my Jeff Green. Take you wanna, take a guest but in the least and so seven or eight, how many seasons for seasons? Where he's had a p r over fifteen, probably like two zero zero fifteen on the is- is its highest ever and I again p are all the stuff it it's all moving, but when you have zero seasons, above that
it's really simple he'd have that one dunk reaches post arise, three players in the other team, any just be like holy shit, now say this soup nice guy by all accounts. I met a man. Be that event. We! That is having a moment this late, career, where he's become this essential guy, now open the Lakers. Let's get back to that, match up are you running for the Rockets because a Jeff Green I'm ready for them for their own, because I worry what what could happen if they don't win the series or forget, swept and ass. I hate the Lakers. Sport is not really the right. Well, I think they're going to go into this in there just gonna go whose guarding hard and on your team, every single person you gonna, throw them he's gonna be able to score on. So you read out the Dublin and she's gonna come down these. Do
it opened three switch they've been hitting. I will be very concerned about the Lakers. I don't know, what's going to happen, this Thurs, I'm not a. I had to take to make a prediction: cuz they could spot Davis forty points a game and still win the series. Yet arrest the guys we want over that beginning group and made the closing group is different there, because it is. But I have I've too quick things, though there's never been an easier system for Geoffrey, and so I think everything you're saying is right, like you're, making the deep programming joke, but I don't think it's really like dammit or off Mademoiselle Yak, as you just have to go. Look here's your action! this, but for the most part they kit, those corner threes, any can still always handle enough that he did get stuck on a catch on a close out where you can just a little bit
we make another play in its ever been about the talent, but I we ve said this constantly been mackerel. More looks like a guy's gonna get another contract, then the Houston is the reason and the Houston system is the reason it so maybe Jeff has to think about less things, but this has to be the time against the Lakers, where an Houston's defence has been terrific and again, oh coma, still as be closed out, but I mean that game five things such bad taste your mouth but again, if the thunder come back when game six, are we gonna be shocked me? Can you could have some other? I will accept. Shall you be shocked me? Ok, if they do the same thing they deserve like the existing there. I think Houston's coaching in their judgments in this that have just been better, but this to be. The series, though, go up against the Lakers. Were the Davis thing it makes him pay a little bit more. So yes, I'm worried about the rest, the wings, the drop off that we see.
Play the spinners. Do the Lakers? Can you play Howard Mcgee on a thirty five minute, the game in the series cuz? I don't feel like you can, but it is it's very much that game to game thing weird or looks like the most valuable guy in a sense, the first few games of that Thunder Houston series that looks unplayable and game five. My favorite example of this is Tristan Thompson and some of the finals games against the warriors. It was like get him out of here. He can't help on any of the stuff and then it's sixteen when they had to come back. The warriors couldn't box him out. So some of these players are very much game to game. So I can imagine a game where it looks terrible when the
we have two bigs trying to cheat like Davis, can chase anybody, but Dwight Travail. Are they gonna? Do a knowledge of helstone? Pretty good, I think, will be knights, were it looks like it's to their advantage and I think that the other nights, because of the way, a game flows where it looks like the Lakers are gonna- have to size down, because the two big look bad. So I don't think it's a hay for the next seven games. Ella can't ever get away with doing some of these things. I think that's what the things that definite our legacy wise. You know I love to bring up legacy from time to time. What an amazing moment for James Harden right now, where he's going to the series he's going against one of the three best players ever he's going to get something that is to the top eight. He goes into this and if he, if he's a one man wrecking crew with the supporting cast God's in three, is Westbrook crashing the boards in this. But ultimately it's a nobody can guard me on James harden
send home series we'll think of him completely differently if he, if he basically cuts the fruit of this workers team that has a pretty short window here. This is three years MAX. Put you have Davis is a free agent this summer. I'm sure you ve heard the same thing: their teams out there who think they have a chance to him. So it's like they there like a if this that, if the Lakers thinkers badly this year, who the fuck knows, I don't think anybody thinks it is a one hundred percent slim job that he's a Laker next year's, maybe ninety five percent I've tried a hundred percent. I've told you that people had clutch clients in to work out where I was like. Why? What are you doing here and they go Anthony Davis? and I was like what you really and then it was. I don't know that even I maybe you understand but I do, but I think there
I'm sorry, I know I'm naive about like wait a minute. What like, why do you think you're his brothers or on teams ranch? I you know, and there are little little things now. It's some there really stupid, like lend Davis, Goin Orlando, because Dwight Howard liked him that did Madame. I think Jarrett Jack ended up with the pelicans once because they were like our Chris Paul loves chair check. Their teams will do some of this stuff- and it's exactly to your point that there are teams, doing we're, never going to concede that there could be some bad ending here and act like we're not play for Anthony Davis, so you will have us rain it. We ve seen this the last five years. You can never say anybody is a slammed on tat to the logo. The team on their shoulder for the next five years
I just use honestly think, though he would leave Leubronn now considering that the family ideal there. What I do think is that if this goes horribly everything's at the table, that's it and I do think if I'm James Harden and I get a potentially knockout Leubronn Davis and the Lakers and apply serious. This is a fork in the road moment for him a ladder ways I just can't fathom a guy goes to clutch. Nuclear options is way out of the pelicans and then is gonna blow off the products they lose the Rockets in the second round. I know you're familiar fan, so eighteen out of twenty times, I think Europe who the fuck does. I merely point, is their teams out there who think that David Ass could be and play something bad happened, some absolutely quickly Miami Malarkey! I picked my aim in this
there is a better Miami to make the final someplace clippers, and I love this match up for them. I like their team. I they David awesome coach. I dont trust player, but I think that their sophisticate enough about thence to do some of this stuff? You need to do against the buck, spilled the war. Against the Addis shoot. The threes try to make the guy more random. I just like the match up. I like there too, you made it an ironically. I thought I'd Duncan Robinson was gonna, be the key guy for them. The plans for like me the guy in Round one, and I watch way too much basketball. Last three weeks, the guy in round one who I was just stunned by was hero like playing fourth quarters and like deciding what to do on Dino keep his hence the fight that were there going through him over the other guy's a team. I think my aim is really good. I've really do I think
a really good team I'll be really nervous. If I was Milwaukee, what do you think? The part I love about hero is his handle and that it's not just me being dumb, has a little bit more shake to him. Then you hold of it and we we start to projects of these guys are two shooters like idealistic him. Stick in the corner, keeps you I think, both as way better in that, if Freddy in Gonna get twenty million. Why wouldn't I mean Duncan Robinson's different situations of his contract, but I was kind of kidding when I tweeted out in a would you trade, this year's number one pay for Duncan Robinson, because you just have to like hope that your pic has the ceiling that can be like a real star but Duncan Robinson, probably north of twenty million a year it if you would just a straight of will member did. I wanted five, twenty five most intriguing guys in the Black Sea region, at your kind of then it. Why didn't you know that you say you know. You said some pigs,
they are less than I didn't know, what do you feel that other parties, but I'd rather like eleventh, I haven't got it. I did. It now here. Oh, I didn't have heroin. The top hundred. I didn't, I didn't think we'd be hearing from him in the playoffs in like a city, go away and then you watching the Indiana Series in the end there like calling like he's Jimmy Chin, would, with four with a clear effort clear for here, a set of a pic, let em cook. How did you do something where everybody got it was in on the joke, but you would just do bad interview then Ba players and you sit down and a one on one with this it with with Tyler here only like. Are you doing this for next outcasts, see. What about of age you every day to become the player that you are because a lot of people thought Nick at a chance Nick had a chance to be what you are now and I I don't think it's. I don't think it's a mistake to say that you're, probably carrying on his name
Complain about last year's coin football more time. I want to know more about that podcast, your top twenty five. I mean you don't like the way bog story. I was like checked out. Celts pig sets pick fourteen because they lost the coin folk to Miami thirteen. And if you go back and look at the draft on basketball reference, it's a drop off cause. It's Pga washed in twelve. Here, thirteen and then at sag. Now it now I'm in the talk myself into guys portion of the draft, and you think like, if you put here on the south, sixteen with the team they have now who eat you literally couldn't pick a rookie from this draft. Who would be the more perfect like a man for the steel bright and instead he goes Amy and it's got to the point where he's stealing minutes from deeds who are probably like what the fact that its twenty he's playing crunch? How is this happening? So I don't know. I just think I think people who have an what
closely, are going to be surprised by how my me does against this Buxton, while the regular season should give you some indication, but some people. What are you so long ago? It has really matter, but my Emmi was was terrific against my work is minus six trade in series. I just wait: a few high, there's, no whole court and then the other thing with this. Miami team is You know any game they could hit. Twenty three is. The measure, but an end, I think, spoke verses, coach bird in a play. Think so you know to be an instrument for yon as too, because there's a version of this series were yadda destroys ban array talks about Bam. You don't need. This is the kind of guy why Indiana just puts up thirty five and fifty in every game is like now there's through it Mynors though yacht is all about Middleton, because your Middleton put up some bigger numbers against Orlando, but I am not impressed against Orlando.
I'm, not impressed me that he is up. Twenty in east are filling it up in the third quarter, to put the lead to twenty eight. Those are not the minutes. Were your whenever Middleton another one of our young people, just don't give Middleton and Inasmuch as Middleton as moments where we correctly parents give them enough credit like where you go okay. This is why you're not talked about some of the other John is going to get him. They can do whatever they want. With me and they're going to double the shit, I suppose she's going to try a million different things, posters right there with nurse posters right there with you know. One thing is going to do all these talk guys. So have Olympic out there, one brick Lopez's at their. Yet it you don't help he'll, try to stagger match ups, so that everything makes the bucks uncomfortable psychology outbreak, Lopez out there he's gonna.
I think I'm twenty five feet out now and he's going to have three shooters out there at all times and twenty cards just up the stuff. I think the key guy from walk is Bludso's and for two reasons one I don't trust him to plaster. Is it at all at all to Albion, should, I think, they're the bet they're at their best with George Hill. In my opinion, I just like what he does for them the most I don't I just don't want too much for my point guard. If I Milwaukee, like steer the steer the ship place of defence. It some open threes, that's it, and this is a serious where I think we'll walk is gonna have to be like a boy. So if you don't have it you're out like we can fuck around, we were we need. We need a steady hand. And how he navigates. That Bledsoe Georgiou thing. I'm more said that the Middleton, the other big thing, and I have a message board if I can plug it here, it's hoops talk, but it's with a z.
We have a thread going right now or Linux. Janis draft is, as its is play off series put that one to bed. Air traffic yeah. How well does a Linux have to play in that serious to make up for good right Friday at us, one hundred forty in twelve or so You pick it in this year's blocking. I'm gonna go ahead and take Milwaukee, then his eye, I was probably more willing to just for the sake of the pod. I felt like when I was gonna leaning, leaning Miami, but I a be too much talk of the early regular games. Could then, in the ceding games walk he took it to a pretty good, but I guess wait. A minute. I'd have to double check and appreciate Miami. Wasn't playing anybody. So Can I ask you who you think this out takes a rather by I think the Celtics rather play Milwaukee. I think they were too, I think by Emmy as their trip. There too. I don't think. Finally, now I don't know, I don't know, I don't know now
I said I later by. I feel that way: ok cause. I don't think the Celtic feel that way here, all the guys who kill them on their team, o Linux dragging forever as his personal, it's personal for Kelly death. They gave up I'll drive, you is like. Are they aunt? I can alien? They switch me offer Heyward cause he's from the states while people another hero, is exactly the type of guy who kills the Celtics. Little crafty scorn out either going to run dry and upper Boston now, like what I think are here. Oh you, just not what like, when I saw him introduced on draft night with the chain and his whole set up. I would like to buy lot know when sob drafted in the way he was handling himself. The ways dresses like he should go. Sixth, just on appearance alone, I'm like look at the ways. What like no way this kid's women bullshit. What was he like in college because, as you know, I barely watch gods, basketball, nor does it were their signs of this are now shooting yes and he
I'll, be in my habit of my scattering, for I was like the poorest of poorest man's clay, where he would reach Himself, would that's what I love the most about hero. Is that it's a really simple thing to do? suit yourself from a shooting position, because the defenders always lose track of you, especially in college, but I dont think we saw the play. Making ability is consists, but I mean I'm not considered say: what's thirty plus Kentucky Games, I would watch my hero stuff and I really liked him. I did you what do you think Boston was taken him if they had won the current us a hundred out as a hundred percent sources hundred thousand percent. I, like you, I, like your confidence. Harrow played a hundred and twenty nine minutes in those four gaps in the papers here, his six thirty thirty, two bit, it's a game he's literally twenty years old, It's not like he's like this state, whose, like the four year College guy who came in his aged twenty three, like he's, it is probably one of the
disguising the play. The citizen is, cares himself like he's these, aiming that the card ashen engender cruelly, unlike what let's get on the hero train and I have always always always like drugget, even liked when they traded the two unprotected first for. I was all and have always been in dragging, I think when I watch him. I just think like how fuckin annoying would be to guard him. They now. Did you see that thing on tee in tee, where their talk about being haste? and Barkley was saying like Andrew Tony made, him bring em up one glass of milk in the hotel. I do not. This is unbelievable, so good, so Barkley they started talking about being. Haste is rookies for some reason and bar Yeah negotiating, I got haze left and right there like war happen. He goes well because age Tony's to call me the Middle I do it, I'm a warm glass of milk and they like a. How would you get away cuz? I have to
locked out of room Service Lake, Charles Barkley, six hundred and fifty two, whatever your Charles Barkley, going to room service, be like hey, I need to come down and pick up a warm glass of milk and hand deliver it to another. Guy in Dr Jay would make him get a newspaper is again you, the newspaper outside my hotel room every morning. Every time are on the road and shacks like Scots Kyle's was like a rock rabbi bags and then shacks disguise on the franchise. I don't do because I was the last time anybody that's a hazy back, but then Shack mentioned that he goes. I tried to is because I haste everybody, because, but the one guy just wouldn't take any shit was drag it and because I really jog it was like hey where I am from, like you, get it like, we you'd say whatever, but like I'm not afraid of you, I'm not like you knock a treat me. This way in shock was like ethical,
did they went out of their practice, even wants a check or just like after that, like I had so much respect for that guy that I would just like to add, as that members were checked, member, that we achieve feud, that one play off series. Him voyage check where and they had a whole like background. I think there are some girl involved from way back when, but they were going out at every I think landed, enable now I haven't. I have run into him yet I'm in it I guess I am. I have some good news. Car MAX is back on Sunday night here and the B S pack has it. Mark has never one used car retailer, you might member last year.

He after he was still nursing his latest broken foot. He said to us some time Jeanne Ribs, like equity, mainly second changing rooms and started bringing stuff from history to the guest room and were like Kay, so he was a guest room, furnished already guess: remit bed in there and a desk in it, which is kind of like a like. My parents, staters something with David. Send the ESA is gone now, taken the guest room like aren't so on one foot, he starts moving stuff and then finally, we feel bad and after reading this whole room, I had some music posters.

So it really rather shape and we're still trying to figure out why switch rooms it had its own bathroom. There may be some pew stuff go and on that I don't even want to consider just keep me out of it. But yes, and now he's that share your bathroom with his sister, which is the big thing. That's all it is it's just not want assures bathroom with sister like it's weird, because you go through that phase. Where you you're siblings, should become you. His enemies, radio, any you caught her regret. I know later on, like I would do anything for any one of my siblings but from age like tender. Third Jeanne have a little sister. You know you you just gotta renewal little world, except for him. It is older sister. I like him not want to share a bathroom. That's the whole reason on a great town. We gather it of yet so so that's what's going on with him and he gets the cast out
last week, was there ever be a scenario where you would say? No, I guess I'm not saying this is even something that you needed say no together something I've. Just sensing that ban gonNA has run of the house now. He said now a few times that the one is upset as my dad so TAT S where the hell am I going to sleep and it's like you know you get to sleep in pencil, written with the bug. Betsy sank. What how did I lose his would happen, so we to figure that out anyway. That's that's my parent corner. It's it's an emotional time at our house when by send decided, he needed is older than the simple, the years I need. I need a bathroom, I or to escape or DEC on C o d, Danny Way H street. When I was thirteen, it was CAD member cash on delivery. They deliver thing to you and you had to have the cash ready, and I thought I was stealing basically like. I did the order

I had fifty bucks and I bought a skateboard deck and they were like what and that's like now that kids can just go hey. I, the Amazon stuff, come and that's mine, while some Havre, the other one, is postman. Which we do not allow our kids to order postmen it's that as a pandora's box, where you have like a twelve year egg. He's a cheeseburger milkshake, ostensibly knocking on our door, faggot persuades guy, with it now yonder persuade so I don't even think about that adds up on my own case gazelle, be like doll posts maids again tonight like get the car, get Albin Special, the games back for us in the West Coast that you're Europe at ten watching them, and next scenery, five o clock and you go away in a like back. She. I can't really leave now right now, but kids with post mates. So what do you do on apple? I tunes like what are you. When ordering movies and all that kind of stuff like what he s, a track of
The issue be: writing this down. Basically, bans that allowed do anything he here play station thing, but I ended up removing my pay from it because he kept buying these packs Anti k in Italian. Be twenty dollars and I'm regular have a job here. Are you to pay me back so I had to shut. So my youngest brother is twenty five years younger than me, and so when I about, let's say thirty five, he was ten and I've been is being now for five years. At that point, him Scott and one time when I came home, I threw my credit card down in the play station thing: and out of nowhere, I'm like. Why do I have like a heavily was a card. I never use, and I got a late fee call on all the stuff. What are all these charges like? How are there to Hunter plus dollars of the charges on the card? I never even though the card it's there like, let's play Asian Playstation places? I went mad and so you know cause he was again and again it's not my kid. So many
differently, be my little brother and I know him and he sees a sweetheart kid, so I didn't want to be mad about it, be mean to him, but I call my mother, I'm like what the fuck what's goin on here like he can't just. Did he just think that was cool? She calls me back and he said he said because you are on tv thought you are rich and you could Jeremy good, it he's a hustler yeah. Did you like it? is: what's he budget about his eye tv there's this need. He again that there are plans, for that is our case. Your keeping track for that is now not cool anymore. It's not add any way more. That ended about six weeks ago for aid for the most part. Now now oh there's this new game and I cant remember the name of it, but it almost six egg Superman's brothers crossed with like some futuristic world, where you're trying to kid ads and how do you know the name of the game? Kid icarus, I no you're talking about, but I don't know the name. Ok. Well that
this new guy now and then saying it's all the rage this is gonna. Take over so keep your outfit argued for men were where it were bathroom guy, is now that was miles matter is a huge problem and have, and so the eddies ye I think you could still use it does work eyes to sneak off to the bent up. Sorry, I think I just here that I think bands rubbish gonna lose on that transaction Kyle.
As close enough, I see how you interact with each other. I think been expects you to use that even those eight it the other bathing with them. That happened for Ben was mad and came out and there she got delayed, though the net, no it's out he's, but he is planted this week still weird first time in twenty years, no Brady and the pets hurts hurtful to trade form, put it back on now, I'm excited for camp. We were oxide format and camera thing I'd, that's a fur! Ah, that's! If prepare cornets finance pair corner back, don't forget with your buying or selling our friends, our car max are, on your side, check our car max to day a car max dotcom, any last less thoughts. At last words, no, I think I might just make up kids, though, prepare corner to fit in
Are you ok with that in the future? If you can, or you could get- maybe tat- maybe emails from readers. Maybe you could take a readers, kid story, or I could just give you extra Ben stores, whatever you have to do. I love the bend stories. I've actually thinking of ordering stuff that you don't want the house and sending if the ban the big loved flag like how does not even exist. Where's their flag with. Why learning like I day how well the rose cell didn't check the reviews on remind it is just so many questions I had so here next week. Jesse, you guys know we're gonna, be publishing this package in recital on Monday night, not Sunday night. Though Labour day, Monday night, which should be a fast anyone, because that's gonna be come enough. Celts wraps gave five, and then at least whatever the good game for the western is so that'll be fun went. So Come back then, but you'll be doing to pack as this week on your feet and then same schedule next week. Great anything else to cover
yeah Chris Long will be on with me this week. Actually, just talk some football be nice to do that, and then the funny thing is. I have a couple gm's scheduled, but depending on how the series win, I don't want to put them in a bad spot and how more than ever- the ok, your team just get eliminated. So let's talk rack about your rotation, so we have a couple. Gm saw that are definitely come in on your soon, but we'll figure it out reimers lapuc, as I did on my fantasy football Homeric this week. I how they're off this weekend, I held it up as long as I possibly could, but our really seems like Thea the seasons coming back. Some set of that. I have a question for you good. Is it wrong to think kylam areas can be the third best fantasy Kubi this year? I, like everybody, loves him. Ok, you ve, ruined VIC, came on Vic was like that I heard victims. That was, I kids like top right yeah, but he
He was say stuff, though, that I think we were real quarterback e, where he was basically saying like us, lame the can understand it that he was stop? What color worry that was like ok and there have been other people throughout the offseason of kind of talking to different people and again these guys it played or ever involved with the league. That Murray Is that all return this in a Baker Mayfield took, as I think that was Cleveland, that was it England thing they want a button around very admiring, yeah and aid. They added Becum, nobody, I'm talkin about. Like the hype for Gaza, the Hyper Cleveland wasn't just Baker, it was the whole thing. It was the off season acquisitions. It was the fact they beat all those bad teams, the second half of the year- that we should pay more attention to but this specifically the conversation Rockefeller Murray, has been incredibly. Ah, I would say, people are incredibly impressed by him. Go and valued added to tell ya see what they saw from him. So I think the answer is yes.
For you and then the other is aiming. We should probably Nancy's when Forbad does come back. Sow is gonna, be here and Sundays. Oh, you you're, ok out, another yeah South Sundays. That's our move where and Thursdays through I now we were loaded, I knew we were gonna Thursday, ok, yeah so south on Sundays, and you could check out safety. Mr Matter, at his extra points by but you and arguably on Thursdays, and there could be some historic thursdays in the mix for us, because we have Thursday night football. But then you know conference files and finally, in the NBA, and then I think, there's that the NBA after is gonna be on Thursday to so? It would be a nice little wrinkles, so then
stay through through and basque above for probably first week of free agency and then we'll go back to you on three week until the next best buses. And then, who knows when the next basque buses is no getting them in their already pushing back there already, basically telling us by not confirming it that they're gonna want to give these guys break, because this is a spy be a combinations and the NBA looking it try to do whatever they can accept curry when he came out. It was your first impression is that the NBA loaded is the amount of stuff that they're doing for us to making sure like this is as easy as possible, but silver has basically without confirming is letting us know with his comments that the six week turn around thing he's like we can't begin even out of it, you want to do that. To these guys would have heard. Is there there thinking about this three bubble thing with twenty game.
Twenty game kind of segments, so ten teams go to a bubble. They pay twenty games. Everybody goes on for two weeks reset come back, because then that gives them the flexibility that if fans can come back, then you're only confined to that bubble. For these little stretches and then you can open it up, and so I there thinking about all that stuff right now and I didn't things on the table, but I I don't think it happens for February me were that boy, Mid january- maybe I don't know, but I just don't do their bit figured out and they really need the fancy come back its shit load of money at stake, and it in if everybody's betting, on our right vaccine by February March Range and this feels relatively safe, like they're, gonna wanna had the fans, and so who knows yet? We have college football.
