A highlight from Hour 1 - A Terrible Thanksgiving
"Let's have a great Black Friday. I'm Steve covino. That is rich Davis. Good morning, bud. Exhausted. Much like everyone that's probably awake right now. Exhausted and I'm thinking about unbuttoning a button. Are you okay with that? Won't make me feel weird at all. It might bust off and pop Joel in the iron or something because yeah, my pants are tight today, man. As we were stuffing our faces yesterday, I hope you feasted. I hope you enjoyed. I hope you had a bills cowboys, Vikings sort of day. Hope you enjoyed your football. We have lots to talk about. I have a story and you have a story and we're going to play a little game who's worse. Yeah. I know it's like way early for games, but you got to hear these stories. Plus, later on today, what you need to watch, the things you need to watch. You have lots of nonsense to get to. It's a pleasure to be here. The number is the same. Give us a call 8 7 7 99 on Fox. Again, we are covino and rich in for Dan Patrick. The opportunity to fill in for Dan is something we can't pass up. No. It's a bigger show on Fox Sports. Huge. So when the boss said, do you guys want to fill in for Dan Patrick? The answer is always. Yes. You know what this feels like? You know when you are really ambitious in your book and flights from Vegas or something like that or a work trip. You read my mind. I was going to say this is the equivalent of looking at a 5 50 a.m. flight saying perfect book it will get there early and start the day. And then you have to wake up and be like, oh, why did I agree to that? I'm hungover and I feel like butt cheeks. That's sort of how we feel right now, but super happy to be here at the same time because millions of different people hanging out with us love the Dan Patrick show. We also want to remind you that, hey, we're on every day, 2 p.m. on the west, 5 p.m. on the east. Just wanted to come and hang with you. Download the podcast. Check out what we do on the regular. But yeah, as much as we're happy to be here, it really does feel like when you book that 6 a.m. flight for vacation and you're like, no, it'll be cool. And then the day comes and you're like, wait, I have to set my alarm for four? Yeah, yeah. Why'd I say yes? I'm blaming rich, but anyway, my belly today, much like everybody's Joel, you too probably because Joel is usually like, yeah, what's up, he's kind of quiet. Joel's probably like, 'cause my belly's like, oh, why don't I eat so much? Yeah, stuff my face early while we were still in it. Yeah, yeah. Joel is here, burch is here. Thank you guys for being here. 8 7 7 9 9 on Fox. This is the question of who has the worst story from yesterday. Now, I think you should start because yours is more of like a typical cavina bonehead move. Let me explain. When the mics are on when the lights are on, that's when I a little more. I don't have many speeds, rich. So this is me animated and focused. I mean, I'll say a kindly. When the mics are off Camino's brain dead. Kind of, right? So we had a really great show yesterday filling in for Dan Patrick. A lot of fun, like always. As soon as the show's over, I go back into my zombie mode, right? Autopilot. You know, Adam Sandler in the movie click. Yes. Sleepwalking through your day. Oh man, because we still had to wake up earlier than usual. I debated going to the gym though. I had great intentions. I was like, do I go to the gym on Thanksgiving? We're done early. Stop it. I didn't. So I went right home. And I knew football was on. We had talked about it. The whole day. But I must say, this is nothing strange. Berts you worked with us before. Cavina is a type of guy that he admits. He's terrible at schedule watching. He watches sports every day, but if I were to ask him, yo, who year Yankees playing tomorrow? Who the niners playing Sunday? He's like, I don't know. I know the day of. Like, cavina is not a schedule watcher. I know they're playing the dolphins. We're going. That's in two weeks. In two weeks. So you don't even know this week. Yeah, I know two weeks. The answer is the saints. The saints. Now, that's not even the excuse. I'm just on autopilot. I know the bills and lions are playing. The Giants and cowboys, the Patriots and Vikings. But I forgot what order in which these games were happening. Which was the first game second game third game, right? It's just because like I said, that's a characteristic of you. It's just me. Yeah. And plus, show's over. I'm just chilling. I go home and I'm like, I'm gonna put the game on. And if I nap, if I fall asleep, no big deal. I'm exhausted. But I'm gonna put the game on. So I'm slinging it. I got a sling. I use sling. And I turn on my TV. I never knew that about you. I said sling. Sling, I'm a slinger. I said slinger. So I just see the ad, the icon, just the icon for giants cowboys. I know what you're talking about because if you have a sling or a specific channel or anything. When you have a streaming service that you use it for live TV, a lot of times when you click on live stuff, you're right, you're clicking on an icon. So I just click the icon. And I'm like, oh, yeah. Okay. Cool. Is this the game? I'm watching and dak Prescott's on the sideline, wearing a hat. And I'm like, what happened at that? Right?

A highlight from Hour 2 - Zach Wilson Apologizes, A Madden Thanksgiving
"Thank you for hanging out with us. Now, we played a clip from earlier this week. Henry Winkler talking about meeting Patrick Mahomes and they're probably going to do a dinner together. We ask you, Fox Sports radio nation. Who would you want to hang with? Think about that. Because these athletes are your heroes. They really are. You grew up with them. I had a Cindy Crawford poster and a Don Mattingly poster. You know what I mean? These are your heroes. And a cypress hill poster. So Cindy Crawford, by the way, actually Cindy Crawford replaced on Mattingly, I think. I think all our moms probably in the 80s or 90s probably had a moment of like, uh huh. They're growing up when you replaced your bow nose poster. And I was like sorry with carbon electrode. At the Barbie twins are taken over. Hey, sorry, Gary Carter. Scoot aside, payman, there's some posters going. All the ones that you creepily gawked at in the back of Spencer's gifts. And by the way, Cindy Crawford's on that documentary, I told you to watch. I watched it. Pepsi, where's my jet? Yeah, that's on Netflix right now. It's a whole controversy. But yeah, pretty good. I watched it. Who would you want to hang with? Not Cindy Crawford. We're talking athletes. My answer isn't who you would think. Rich would probably say, dude, Derek Jeter. It's not because I think he'd let me down. He's sort of a boring guy. But you also have to ask yourself, just because they're your favorite player, is it someone you'd want to sit down and have a cocktail with, have a steak dinner with and pick their brain and actually have a conversation? What player do you think you'd want to hang with? Now, think about it 8 7 7 9 9 on Fox, call say what's up. We are going to talk about Zach Wilson and we're going to give out some Thanksgiving pardons. Later today. But my answer isn't Derek Jeter. I'd say, from yesteryear, right? I could think of a thousand boxers I'd love to hang with. But my answer because I thought about it is burnaby Williams. Bernie Williams, former Yankee former champion. Here's why. There's more to Bernie than burn, baby burn. Then baseball. Arms are baseball. The guy plays guitar. He's a deeper duty. He's a nice sensitive guy. No ego there. I think he'd be a nice hang. I could be friends with Bernie Williams. We had him on our show. Such a nice guy. Flame answer. It's not. My current answer is probably the one you're going to criticize. And I thought about this too, because people either love them or hate them. He's the goat. You got to learn from the best. You want to be able to hang with the best. The answer is Tom Brady. I think Joel might agree with me. And if you watch his documentary, man in the arena, how could you not fall in love with him as a winner as a person? And maybe a little bit of that greatness rubs off on you. You know what I mean? Those are my answers. Tom Brady's the goat, man. I think you look at this in the proper perspective. You look at now and yesteryear. And I think hanging with an athlete back when he was in his prime is one thing and hanging with a guy just based off what you remember like Jeter. My guys, you're right. I would love to hang with Tom, but my guy who I really would love to hang with. Isaiah Thomas. And that's mainly because I think we agree on a lot of things. He's got a master's. He's from the south side, west side. He won in college. He's a pro and the main thing that we could just sit around and rag on. Michael Jordan. The one guy, the one guy ever, Isiah Thomas, the one human being that could say that they got the better. Of Michael Jordan. People don't like to think about it or remember it, but Isiah Thomas for a handful of years. She's had he got him. Yeah, but Joel said something else too. There's more to Isaiah Thomas than sports. He could talk about anything, right? That's right. Super sort of guy, deeper thinker. Fun conversation. My one criticism with sports guys and some of you might get mad about this. A lot of times it's all about sports. That's why I said Bernie Williams. Because then you're going to have a sports conversation all day long. He's like, hey dude, do you talk about anything else? Friends, family? Sports all day. I don't want to hang out with a sports robot if I had the choice. That's what I say bad. Yeah, that's what I say no. Okay, there's a guy there's more to me than just sports. I like music and family and things like that. Bernie was my answer. I think he's a nice dude. Tom Brady is my real answer for this conversation. Going to your calls now at 8 7 7 9 9 on Fox. And I want to hear who your answer is. I got a couple and then maybe I'll pick one. I'll give you one. I just think I've always been a fan of his. I like how he's a straight shooter. I like his vibe. Call me crazy, but on my list, sir Charles Barkley would be my old school person that I'd want to hang with. I feel like he's fun. I feel like he's an intelligent guy, but he's also equally like dopey and fun. I'm surprised. I think sir Charles might be a great dinner conversation over a glass of wine, have a seat. I knew it was gonna lead to food. Yeah. A nice dinner with sir Charles, and then I think another good answer. Current day. Would be just if you want to have a good night out. We're talking just fun times. Gronk. He's

"5 p.m. Eastern Time, 2 p.m. on the west, but we figured we'd start off early with you today. And hang out with all of you who love the Dan Patrick show. You think when I get home after this, there's any chance I'll be able to get a little nap in with a two and a 5 year old. No. Yeah, good luck. I think I'm up for the rest of the day. It's fun to think about. I always think about all that nap later on. But then I realized I'm a grown up. And I don't really need a nap. It just sounds good in theory because I never want to wake up. Anyway, thank you for being here. Appreciate you. By the way, did you hear about this Christmas album or no? This new Christmas album? Dude, it's funny you should say this. We should probably save it for tomorrow because I feel like Christmas music shouldn't even start until after you eat dinner. Well, I agree with you a 100% because I think tonight after Thanksgiving dinner. Think I'm gonna watch a Christmas story Christmas Ralphie 30 years later. Let's do it. It's so good. I met watch that spirited. Will Ferrell Ryan Reynolds? Say that one. Or maybe I'll watch love actually or home alone. Maybe break out something Christmassy tonight. Every year we start Christmas earlier in earlier and early, right? I think we started Christmas if you go to Home Depot and target and turn on the radio right after Halloween this year. It was like ridiculous. It's like we skipped Thanksgiving. Put up the trees. Right, so I say we enjoy our Thanksgiving, enjoy friendsgiving, your friends and family, and then later tonight you can watch Christmas story Christmas. All your football and I highly recommend it by the way. I didn't expect much, but I really like that movie. And then you can start listening to some Christmas music. Tonight, tomorrow. Listen, I'm no Grinch. I love Christmas as much as anyone. In fact, I'm the guy that loves to decorate outside and go to all these little fun things with my kids and stuff. But I can't get in that zone until tonight. My tonight kicks off Christmas. So you hear the Philadelphia Eagles Christmas album? I heard this. And tomorrow, we'll do a full breakdown. So if you're an eagles fan, players on their team got pipes. I saw this on social media. The eagles lineman, this is no BS. No cap. eagles lineman have a Christmas album now, and it's so good. And people love it. Yeah. It's Philly, special Christmas. So are you adding this to your rotation? Crosby's and Nat King Cole's and Karen Carpenter's. And my personal favorite. Yeah, his real name's bingo. A lot of people don't know that. Crosby is a bingle berry. Dingleberry Crosby. And of course my favorite Christmas legends, the chipmunks. This is true, by the way. This is the biggest hit in football since the Super Bowl shuffle by the 1985 Chicago Bears. It's a Super Bowl shuffle, which was legendary. When you think about athletes I could sing, who comes to mind. Let's give you one and then we'll move on. Tyson Fury? Tyson Fury could sing. Boy boy, miss American pie. Oladipo sings. I was gonna say Victor Oladipo, NBA superstar, Victor Oladipo. I remember, I remember watching oral hershiser sing, like on a late night talk. I think that was a dream you had. I think that. I remember, I remember thinking it was weird. I'm like, what's he singing about? Are there any member in athlete who thought he was just gonna kill? He had his press clothes on. Walked out to center floor, he was gonna sing the national anthem. And then Carl Lewis said, uh uh uh, I remember that. Yeah, that was weak. Many pucky are things he could say. Many Pacquiao loves doing karaoke. Yeah, he does. Are there any NBA NFL or Justin Tucker? Is a great singer. Justin Tucker? Yes. He grew up in the choir and his church, and he's phenomenal. I mean, there's some good rappers. Dame Lillard. Singers, I'm telling you, put it this way. My mom, I mean like most moms, right? They love their Christmas music. Steven Nat king Cole is the best. Karen Carpenter. Parents love that. Greeting cards. My mom actually reached out to me. She's like, have you heard? I'm like the eagles. Don Henley? No, the Philadelphia Eagles. No. The football team, they have a wonderful Christmas. I'm like, really? We'll talk about that probably tomorrow on the show. Some of your songs that you gotta hear. Maybe before the end of the show, let's try to pull a clip of this because I don't recognize the player from first glance.
Wiggins scores season-best 31 points, Warriors beat Clippers
"Kawhi Leonard and Paul George were absent due to injuries and without them the warrior steamrolled the clippers beating LA one 24 one O 7. Andrew Wiggins made 6 threes and led Golden State with 31 points. Every game is going to be different. Steph's going to be stuff. Always. But tonight, the ball was moving to find a lot of people. And made some shots. Stefan curry added 22 points and Klay Thompson scored 15 of his 18 points in the first quarter. The clippers only scored 18 points in the second quarter and trailed by 29 points in the final period. In the loss, Marcus Moore senior with 19 points. Ryan leong, San Francisco

Celtics forward Jayson Tatum scored 37, while his teammate jaylen Brown added 31. The Celtics led by as many as 27, but the Mavericks cut it to 9 in the second half behind league leading scorer Luka Dončić's 42 points.

DeRozan scores 36, Bulls down Bucks 118-113
"The bulls are showing signs in the last two games that they're turning things around. They wanted Milwaukee one 18 one 13, not with back to back wins over the bucks in Boston Celtics two of the best teams in the NBA demar Derozan led the way with 36. Just having a confidence to compete for a close to 48 minutes as possible. Being locked in, you know, and these are results. White made back to back late three pointers that erase the box three point lead the final 75 seconds. Yanis Santa drupal had 36 for the bucks. Check Freeman. Milwaukee
A highlight from Hour 1 - Zach Wilson Benched, CFP Watch
"Play of the day, poll question, stat of the day, all of that coming up. A lot of things to get to and phone calls are always welcome 8 7 7 3D P show and let's see. Operator Tyler standing by. We're not going to be here on Thursday and Friday. And Tyler said, can I put some things on the traeger grill? So we got burgers, dogs, and brats coming up a little bit later on. Fabulous. Thank you, Todd. And if you're watching on peacock, you can watch all of it unfold. You okay, Todd? I am. Okay. I'm very hyped up. Yes, I know. That's why I said, are you okay? It's a little wild, a little frisky, a little fritzy today. On a holiday weekend. Why today? Do you feel frisky? I've got a couple of guests. It's Thanksgiving, family, Friends, got a couple days off. My blood pressure seems to be where it should be. And we can have some fun with the holiday related names or different things we like to do. Oh. Okay. You already wearing your holiday related sports named T-shirt. Little snug, but I made it work. I got it in there. Okay. Gotta get some various equipment to get me in it, but what the jaws of life to get you. I don't know how I'm getting out of it. Some of the names that you have on your T-shirt there? We got Larry Bird, Jack ham, pie trainer, Mark Eaton, Tim mccarver, and Matt Holliday. And it says Happy Thanksgiving with a DP old logo on the back. Feeling good. All right. Carver the turkey. Okay. We should all be in good spirits. All right. I am. I am every day's a soup. I'll be very grateful. Okay, so Todd just did this whole thing about how grateful he is, right? And how he's in a good mood and everything like that? Yeah. Would it shock you to find out that his poll question suggested today was what I like least about Thanksgiving. I skewed very negative with that. Why? I don't know. Because there are things that are annoying about Thanksgiving. Positive nice guy face? It's not the case. Yeah, I'm full of beans and full of green beans. Full of beans. I think you're a dark comedy. I might be. Yeah. It's all a big show. It's all big dog and pony show. Maybe you just dark, but you know, if we were gonna, if I was looking at you and said, oh, what kind of movie are you? You'd be a dark comedy. I think so. I like to make people laugh, but then there's that side of me that may frighten others. David Pollack from the mothership will look at the final four rankings that came out and what could go wrong coming up this weekend, the different scenarios. Marcellus Wiley, the former all pro defensive end will stop by as well. What would he do with Zach Wilson because right now I'm not quite sure who the jets are going to start at quarterback against the bears. You know, we look at these players and we go, oh my gosh, if you bench him now, then you're going to lose him forever. Okay. This is in college. This is the prose. You also have to make a move that that will reflect on who you are as a coach and what the other players in that locker room are going to think of you. And that's where I would go if I'm Robert sala, I'd sit him down. I would let the rest of the locker room know he's not on scholarship anymore. Yes, he was the second pick overall. Yes, we gave him the keys to the kingdom here. But nobody is above anybody else here. it that way. I'd sit him down and I would let him know, earn your right. Earn your right to be the leader of this team. It's an honor to be the leader of a football team in the NFL. This hidden BYU, your feelings may get hurt, get tough. And learn now. Because you're going to be in for a roller coaster ride the rest of your career. That's the position that you have. Look at Sam darnold. Sam darnold couldn't have been hotter when he came out. The analysts said you can't go wrong with Sam darnold. He's got the demeanor, team player, played at a big time program, and you can't go wrong with him. He seemed like the safe pick, the sure pick. Well, it didn't work out. He goes to Carolina, he gets to start this weekend. I don't know if this is last call for Sam darnold, but he couldn't miss and you know what, Zach Wilson can miss as well. And of all the quarterbacks, he was the one I thought, you know, if you're gonna have a bust, it might be him. Does have great talent. You can't get to this point if you don't have Greek talent. It's really hard to go. You know what we don't have any talent, but he's a good quarterback. They all have talent. It's like when somebody goes, hey, man, that guy didn't need steroids. You know, he's a great hitter. Yeah, you get to the big leagues, you're a great hitter. It's hard to get there and go, you know, he can't hit, but we put him in the lineup every day.

"Pollack always good form. Somehow, a smooth segue, college game day, ESPN college football, analyst, and they have the big game in Columbus. The rivalry week, the game Ohio State in Michigan, and that'll be coming up game day 9 a.m. till noon on Saturday on the mothership and ESPN. If you didn't go to Georgia, where were you going? I would have gone to Clemson or Ohio State. Those were probably my next two that I would have gone to. What was the recruiting study? You got a good recruiting story? Well, Dan, I wasn't really that highly recruited. Was it like some of these? Well, wait a minute. Clinton in Ohio State and Georgia well, I think I had four or 5 offers coming out of high school, but Clemson was the only school actually that recruited me on defense. Well, how state Georgia recruited me on offense? But I got a good recruiting story for Ohio State, dude. I'm from the south Dan. You know that I'm from Georgia, lived in Georgia my whole life. I went on a recruiting trip to Ohio State and I flew up there during the season to go watch a game and I got off the plane and there was like 6 inches of snow and I was like, what in Sam heck is that mom? Like absolutely no deal breaker. I'm out right now and then guess what? 5 years later or four years later I'm drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals. God has a sense of oh, it's amazing. Maybe you shouldn't have flown up. If you didn't fly up to no, if you had gone up in September, you might have gone, God, this is beautiful. The foliage. Gorgeous. Everything's great. Damn with the bangles, man. I'll never forget everybody was complaining about camp and like it's so hot. I'm like, what? This is spring ball in Georgia like this is. And you know, when the weather changes, especially, you know, the bigger guys, like the weather changes, you know, your energy level goes up and you can run all day, your lungs feel so good and I was like, this is amazing, but yeah, first time I ever got on an airplane was my flight and my official visit to a house day. Do you get accused of preferential treatment for Georgia like Kurt Kirby street, maybe with Ohio State? Oh, a 100%. And there's no, it's funny to watch your timelines on social media because by the way, I love it. I love the hatred on social media. I absolutely think it's comical. I think it's funny. I think it's awesome. But if I pick Georgia, you know, I got a bunch of a segment of people that you're a Homer, blah, blah, blah. And then if I pick against Georgia, I'm Benedict Arnold. And I've actually gotten in my wife several years ago, got an altercation. This was like 5 years ago in my living room. My wife is the most passive person ever. One of my friends wives are like, what's wrong with you? You played at Georgia. How could you pick against Georgia? They made you what you are, blah, blah, blah. And it was like Georgia fans every time I think against them, they get upset and I'm like, listen, here's when I grew up in the business, I watched a couple of guys and I never forget watching Lou holtz. And he coached the South Carolina and he coached an Arkansas and he coached it Notre-Dame. And every time we talk about South Carolina, Arkansas and Notre-Dame, he picked them and he loves them and obviously I get it. But I remember those moments when I was growing up in broadcasting. I'm like, I'm going to make sure I don't do that. I'm going to make sure I click the best team who I think is going to win and let the chips fall where they May and damn, it doesn't matter what we do. You know how this works. If you pick somebody, you could say the nicest thing in the history of the world about the other school and pick them as soon as you pick them, you think their team's trash. And they're going to say something about it and they're going to hit you up and it really doesn't matter. What happened with your wife and the guest who came over almost get ugly? No, I wish, man.
A highlight from Lamar Hurd and Mike Prada
"And now, the low post. Welcome to the low post podcast Happy Thanksgiving everybody and I've had a couple teams on the mind. Two teams have been kind of weird seasons, both of whom, as we podcasted about over the summer, lock themselves into gigantic contracts for franchise guards. First we're gonna start with the Portland Trail Blazers and we're recording this on Tuesday afternoon. What a difference a week or so makes the blazers are on top of the world, 9 and three, all the blazers fans who heard people like me saying it's kind of bloody and 500 team yelling screaming, taunting, then Damian Lillard's calf strain acts up. They've lost four out of 5 and I'm interested to see what this team is and to talk about it. I'm going to gas you up right off the bat, Lamar heard who does the color commentating alongside Kevin collabo is a star in broadcasting is and will continue to be a star and you're annoying to me in that you're one of those people who could sit courtside. I don't know if you watched the game or you watched the monitor a little bit of both. And every time I see some sort of interesting X's and O's wrinkle like oh look how they rotated against this pick and roll from the strong side and instead of the weak side and I'm gonna write about this because no one spots this kind of stuff in real time. There goes Lamar herd being like, so if we slow down the film right there, watch how the place is rotated. Lamar man is great to have you on. I'm a huge fan. Hey, thanks for having me. My fault, I didn't realize I was messing up your writing because as you know, I'm a fan of your writing as is most of the NBA world. And so I'll be a little more cognizant of that. Throughout my analysis, 'cause I'm not trying to mess anything up. And really in all seriousness, man, this is my first time being able to join you and I had the chance to tell you this one time privately, but I like to say publicly, like, dude, I really appreciate you because my first year of broadcasting in the NBA world, I remember there was this one morning, I woke up and my phone was going crazy. And I didn't know what was going on. It was my first two months of being with the trailblazers. And the first thing I'm thinking is, oh my goodness, I got in trouble, or I did something, but I didn't know what I did. And I opened up the phone and I see all these notifications about Zach Lowe writing about us and his ten things he likes doesn't like. And so that was really big for me, man. I appreciate you kind of welcoming me in to the world that you already a part of. So I'm glad to join you today. Let's chop it up about the blazers who are ten and 7, 7 and four with dame three and three without name. They are 13th in offense. 11th in defense and the west is, they fell from first to 8th in the blink of an eye. Their ten and 7, I somewhat infamously called this roster blah blah. I said blah many times before the season. And by blah, I just meant 500 don't really see an upside better than 500. And although they've fallen back to not 500, but closer to 500 than they were and it's clearly going to be a battle just to get out of the play and in the west because the west is that loaded. I do think this team is better than I thought they were gonna be. There's certainly the athleticism and the length around the two star guards and nurkic in the middle really jumps off the page. They're creative. They're well coached, I still don't really know where they stack up in the west. And that's in part because the big boys in the west haven't really been the big boys yet. I mean, Utah is still right near the top of the west. Golden State is 12, I think, in the west. What's your assessment of this team? Are they closer to the 9 and three team? Are they closer to like a 44 win team? What you see them up close every day? What's your takeaway from the first 17 games? Yeah, I don't know if I have a conclusion for you to your direct question. If I had to pick something, I'd say somewhere in the middle. What I have gathered from this team so far this year is they are going to be competitive in a way that they have not been in my 7 seasons so far being with the team. So I've been a part of some good rosters. I was here for the Tina made it to the Western Conference Finals. And there's been a lot of big time play. You know what Damien Lillard has done. You knew what CJ McCollum did. You know what they did in tandem. The year when you some nurkic first got acquired, that was my first season with the team as well. And that was a team that went from outside of the playoffs to in. That's when all the Portland caught what was termed fever and I forgot about nerd fever. Yeah, nerd fever was rolling, man. And there are people with rolling and really it will cause until he got injured in 2019. So that year when the team made it to the west to cover his finals was nerf wasn't healthy for that. That's the year he broke his leg.
Suns hold on to win 115-105, Lakers' Beverley ejected
"Devin Booker and Mikhail bridges each scored 25 points to lead the suns to a one 15 one O 5 victory over the Lakers. Dwayne Washington added 15 points off the bench to shut down a late LA rally and give the suns their 5th consecutive regular season victory over the Lakers. Putting in the work, you know, and believing in yourself and when you put in a lot of work, you know, that's where confidence comes from. So, you know, I have confidence in myself, team has confidence in me, players got confidence in me. So just keep getting better. Anthony Davis led all scorers with 37 Patrick Beverly ejected late in the game for shoving sun center, Deandre ayton. George Tanner, Phoenix
Nets' Ben Simmons booed, loses in Philly homecoming 115-106
"With Joel embiid James Harden and Jarvis Maxie out with injuries, forward Tobias Harris picked up the mantle for the 70s sixers in a one 15 one O 6 win. Harris scored 7 points during a fourth quarter run that enabled Philadelphia to seal the victory, Harris at 24 points, 18 to those coming in the second half. The Anthony melted on the 23rd, Kyrie Irvin had 23 for Brooklyn
A highlight from Hour 2 - Jimmy G. Is Pretty Good, Mark Sanchez
"We'll check in with Mark Sanchez former jets quarterback about the situation with the jets and Zach Wilson. Also, what happened with the Arizona Cardinals, they're now four and 7 and in trouble, heading the opposite direction of the San Francisco forty-niners, niners blowing out the Cardinals 38 to ten, four touchdowns for Jimmy Garoppolo, and he had this to say about the atmosphere in Mexico City. The whole atmosphere tonight, I haven't played in the atmosphere or anything like this. It was electric, the fans were nuts. They were cheering throughout the whole game, which it seemed like a soccer game at some point. It's just the passion that they brought and everything like that. It was really cool. I would love to do Here's Kyle Shanahan, the niners head coach on playing in Mexico City. Everywhere I've gone to Mexico, we've been given love like that. And then to feel here in Mexico City, it was so cool. I didn't know exactly how it was going to be, but I mean, when they're doing the other team coming out and cheering for us, I mean, and we're this far away from home. I thought that was pretty special. The key for the niners is they're healthy. Elijah Mitchell, Christian McCaffrey, jibo Samuel George kittle, Brandon aiyuk. Your quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo's healthy, boasts healthy, defensive line, offensive line, and they have all the ingredients here. The question is going to be Jimmy Garoppolo. The UC comes down to Jimmy G because the NFC is there for the taking. That's why they went all in. They got Christian McCaffrey because they looked around and went, all beatable here. And we were trying to figure out the niners. They lost to Denver. And you got to be really bad to lose to Denver. And they didn't put up points, and then you're thinking, all right, maybe they were right about Jimmy Garoppolo. But it took him a while because he wasn't with the team, and they had moved on from him, told him he could seek a trade, and then trying to kind of play his way back into whatever Jimmy G is, whoever Jimmy G is, and you saw last night, he played extremely well. But I'm gonna put a lot of blame on the Cardinals, because that looked like a defense that didn't want to be out there. Gave up, Troy Aikman even pointed that out on one play. Their guys just didn't want to tackle. And we're only 11 games into the season. And it feels like that's a mess. But you've got everybody signed up, GM and coach are signed up through 2027. You're all in on Kyler Murray. The coach is expendable, so is the GM. The quarterback, not so much. And colt I don't, you know, I don't expect, I didn't expect much out of him other than he would be a professional. He'd go out there and he would play and probably make a lot of the right calls. It doesn't have anywhere near the ability that Kyler Murray does, but, you know, you could hear Larry Fitzgerald in the pregame saying, hey, this guy's a leader. He's not going to be running around. Wide receivers love to know where the quarterback is going to be so they can run their rounds. Just the niners were a far better team than the Cardinals. And momentum wise, San Francisco should feel pretty good because Dallas and Philadelphia, one of those teams is going to be a wild card team. And going to go on the road. San Francisco wins the division. Somebody's coming to see them. Yeah, Paul. And San Francisco has the big opening. Rams are out, basically. The Cardinals feel like they're almost out. Seattle Seahawks, they're the surprise team and they're playing well, but right now it's San Francisco and Seattle are tied at 6 O four. They don't feel the same. Yeah. They don't feel the same. You know, I feel more confident in 6 and four San Francisco than I do 8 and two Vikings. Yeah, more. Sorry to go back to Jimmy G talking about Mexico. Are American fans tame compared to the rest of the world just in general? Well, that's a soccer atmosphere and they're used to watching soccer, and that's far more spirited. If you've ever gone to a big time soccer match, it's like, oh my God. They never stop. They never stop. And they'll have their songs, their chance, derogatory chance. I mean, there's stuff that's going on. You know, we're on our phones. We're gonna see things to my social media what's going on? College football has that atmosphere in certain areas of the country, but soccer atmosphere is crazy great. And the niners talked about that. They were the home team last night. And when Cardinals came out, they were getting booed by these fans. Yeah, Pauly. It's weird to look at the rams, the rams have been outscored by more than any team in the NFC. Right now, technically, they're the worst team in the NFC. They've been outscored by 59 points compared to their opponents. The next worst is the Cardinals outscored by 56 points. I mean, the Detroit Lions are having a better season both the rams and the Cardinals. Yeah. Both stat wise and standings wise.

A highlight from The Best of The Dan Patrick Show
"It to a Tuesday, Dan and the dannett and Patrick show morale is high. Come on in, stay a while. We'll check in on the World Cup. Oh, so Mark Sanchez. Fox Sports analyst, former NFL college quarterback, will join us coming up a little bit later on as well. Phone calls are welcome. Tyler standing by to take your phone calls. You can email, you can tweet all the above, say good morning to those on peacock, streaming this show, download the app watch for free. Those chatting on chat roe. And our radio affiliates around the country, nearly 400. After an 11 and 6 season last year, the Arizona Cardinals went all in. They committed to the roster, the coaching staff, the GM Steve keim head coach cliff Kingsbury signed through 2027. They traded for Hollywood Brown at the draft, they went all in, they gave Kyler Murray, his 5 year $230 million contract. Season hasn't gone his scripted. Now after being blown out last night in Mexico City, the cardinals are four and 7. This has to be a concern because Kyler Murray hasn't lived up to that mega contract. Deandre Hopkins is 30 years of age. JJ Watson old 33. And you look around the division. Seattle is good. The niners are really good. The rams are reeling. Now you start to look at this long-term and you go, all right, at some point, who are you going to have with Kyler Murray there? Because JJ watt will be gone. Deandre Hopkins will be on his last legs. What do you have? And you got a coach who has failed miserably in the second half of seasons and you start to wonder when does that contract with Kyler Murray look like it's an anchor. It's going to be something that's going to keep you, it's going to sink you. I think at some point. And I'm watching the game, Monday night crew, and I thought, okay, let me hear what they have to say about colt McCoy is going to be in there. Jimmy G, everybody's going to love Jimmy G now. Christian McCaffrey, a couple of games there in San Francisco. They're getting healthy. And then I thought, well, let me hear what Larry Fitzgerald is going to say about Kyler Murray. And Larry surprised me. He had this to say on colt McCoy's leadership. This meant to cope. But also really powerful was the episode the week before when you saw cold veteran leadership on display and the way he spoke to the team. So Larry, let's start with you here. How have you seen the Cardinals respond to coal in a way that maybe they hadn't before with kyla? Well, I'm out here with the conversations more when she makes this glowing about his leadership. The leading meetings, taking the audience, he makes a mistake. Sam, that was on me. I'm gonna get it fixed. That's a big part of being a leader. I mean, a lot of people talk about arm strength and speed and all these things at the end of the day when you're playing quarterback in the National Football League, it's about leadership. About getting people in galvanizing them to be able to go out there and do the things that you as a team want to do. They call this done that. It's three and one is a starter. He's been very good with the football on terms and not putting them in positions where they can't be successful. And they need to continue to do that against really, really good defense. What
Bucks pull away in second half to beat Trail Blazers
"The box took control in the third quarter and they beat the blazers who played without Damian Lillard their best player One 19 one 11 bucks they used 37 points from Jana sander cupo and pulled away from a two point halftime lead Out of the kupo had 19 third quarter points mostly on hard drives to the basket When they get hit I feel like I'm part of the game I feel like the game I'm lucky now making plays and being aggressive And for any simons led Portland with 29 points the blazers have lost three straight Check Freeman Milwaukee
A highlight from Kyrie's Return & The Floundering Warriors
"Dig breaking news, is there a breaking new sounder? We can use for that. I don't dig Thanksgiving food. Like turkey does nothing for me. Cranberry sauce does nothing for me. Stuffing does nothing for me. Like pie, I can get down with pie, but everything else involved with Thanksgiving meals doesn't do anything for me. I will be probably on my couch. Ordering up pastrami sandwich on Thanksgiving and will be as happy as anyone on that holiday because of it. Do you have a hot take on Thanksgiving? I mean, I just can't believe that you and I have been podcast partners for almost two years. We've known each other for, I don't know, 15 or something and I'm just now discovering that you're a kami. I didn't see that coming. How's it might be a cobby? Like that food isn't it? Katie Thanksgiving is over. That's just un American is it? Okay, but when was the last outside of Thanksgiving, you're a family man. Outside of Thanksgiving, when do you sit down and carve a turkey? I will turkey sir, when is that meal again? Turkeys are very large and cutting them as hard and you need a lot of people around to eat a turkey because it's huge. I'm not carving anything else either. I'm not carving cows, I'm not carving chickens. I'm not doing a lot of carving period, so that's, but I do love turkey. Like turkey sandwich is kind of my go to sandwich. I'm a turkey guy. I love stuffing. I love cranberry sauce. I even love, I still love the ocean spray straight out of the can, looks like the interior of a can like cylinder of cranberry sauce. I freaking love that stuff. I love pumpkin pie. I'm all in on Thanksgiving, man. You can't talk me out of it. It's so gross. It's the best. It's the best. No, it's not. I bet if you put up, maybe we'll do this on Tuesday, a Twitter poll. Who would you rather eat with on Thanksgiving? Howard back and his turkey and all the trimmings or Chris mannix and his foot long salami sandwich. Pastrami sandwich. announce to the world that you are un American and just don't understand the meaning of Thanksgiving, that's fine. Let's do the poll. All right, let's do that. All right. On this episode, we're gonna get into Ben Simmons a returns to Philadelphia for the first time as a playing member of the Brooklyn Nets. The Golden State Warriors, they're struggling. What's the panic meter at for the warriors? And Sacramento, my kings are the Sacramento Kings actually good. I told you our Beck before the season they're gonna make the playoffs they're starting to make me look good right now. But first, we wanna begin with Kyrie Irving's return to the nets lineup urban was back in the lineup on Sunday. It was a so so performance after 7 games off due to suspension. There was some stuff going on outside the arena that turned out to be just as newsy as what Kyrie was doing inside the arena. You were at the Barclays center on Sunday Howard for this game. What did you make of Kyrie's return? Well, let's talk basketball first. I mean, basketball wise, you know, not exactly a memorable Kyrie performance as his final game before the suspension also wasn't great that night against the bulls where he looked really tentative and just kind of out of sorts. And listen, again, as it's purely a basketball matter, you know, I think this is something to keep an eye on for the nets where, you know, I'm not gonna say this is like Kyrie some passive victim and all this. He created this entire situation. But the situation and all the backlash, the criticism, everything that he has gone through again, self inflicted, but it is clearly having an impact on his psyche. And I think that showed up in the final game before his suspension and then three weeks later, it showed up again in Sunday Night's game where I think he had 14 points on 16 shots or something. Like it wasn't a great or maybe on 12 shots, but it wasn't a great efficient performance. He had zero assists, he, you know, he was there, right? Like, you two watanabe had a more memorable night by far than Kyrie. Watanabe exploding for a bunch of threes in the fourth quarter when they put the game away. By the way, too, they win the game by pulling away in the fourth quarter, but it had been really close up until about three, four minutes into the fourth when they started to pull away. And this was against the grizzlies team that had no John morant, no Desmond bane, no Jared Jackson junior and the nets with all three of their stars out there really struggled to put them away at home. So, you know, the nets have gotten a little bit of momentum lately and Kyrie Irving is now back and Ben Simmons, we will talk about more. He is playing closer to what we're used to seeing the Ben Simmons of old. But I listen, I don't know where this goes next for Kyrie Irving. On the quarter off the court, the controversy, you would presumably eventually fade, but the feelings that stirred up, the backlash, the concerns, not just by many people outside of the organization, but the organization itself.
A highlight from Top 5 MVP Candidates So Far
"And now, the low pose. Welcome to the low post podcast on a Monday afternoon the World Cup is starting what's up? Croatia repeat finals run at minimum coming up. But we're not gonna talk too much about soccer except for this. France and all you French fans don't think I forgot that BS handball that turned the World Cup final in 2018, penalty kick France goes up in the locker room two one we, I'm using we would have won that World Cup if not for that penalty kick, but what's past this pass we're coming back for more. Kevin pelton. How are you? I'm doing well, is someone whose teams are the U.S. and Italy. I don't recognize the 2018 World Cup is happening at all with apologies to Croatia. You know, look, sore loses a sore losers. What can you do? What can you do? We are at the quarter mark almost of the NBA season we're approaching the quarter market. So it's time now. We've settled in. We've seen enough. It's the first time where I feel comfortable discussing awards. And there's only one word that I really care enough about to actually discuss at length at any point in the season other than the end of it. And that's MVP. And I just hope I just hope that all these guys stay healthy. Because we could have a legit like rollicking four or 5 man MVP race at the end of the year where you could make a legit case for that many guys. Too many MVPs end up being, if not unanimous like borderline like, we all know who's gonna win, or it just comes down to two guys and it just becomes this vitriolic, you like this guy so you must hate this guy. You like this guy, so you must take this guy, which was jokic and embiid last year with Yanis just over in the corner like, hey, still really good. Might be the best guy. No one really cared. This year we have a whole slew of candidates, could be really interesting. I feel like every time we hit the halfway point or the quarter mark like this, something bad happens multiple guys get injured and it just gets winnowed down to two or one, but let's hope not. So we're going to go 5 to one off of our actual, you know, did you have a vote last year, Kevin? Yeah. So you had an MVP vote last year. I had an MVP vote last year. You fill out one to 5. You get 5 slots, you'll get 7, you don't get 9. If your favorite guy is not on the ballot, 'cause we hate them. Just 'cause you only get 5. So we made our fake ballots for the quarter mark. These are non binding. They don't matter. If you think I'm going to remember who my quarter mark ballot was tomorrow, let alone in April, you are sadly mistaken. I will forget this as soon as this podcast is over. But why not? It's fun. I did my whole warp since spreadsheet with all the advanced numbers is here and ready to go. And let's just do it. Kevin pelton, let's go 5 to one. Who's number 5 on your fake MVP ballot? Well, can I first digress by asking you a question? One of the things I was looking at, as I was doing this, is how many players would you be surprised if they won MVP? And I think that list has got to be like 6 or 7 this year, which is speaks to what you're saying about how wide open this race could be. Because I think three guys who are not on my MVP ballot who I would not be surprised if by the end of the year they were actually the MVP. How many would I not be surprised if they won? Right. I think how many legit candidates are there. I think we're probably if you're being generous, you could probably it's 7, 7 to 8 legit candidates. Some of whom have waxed and kind of waned already, some of whom are injured right now, including John morant and may fade a little bit. But I do think I do think there's a clear top three and I wonder if we ended up with the same top three, but we'll get there. Maybe you disagree. But after that, there's a whole slew of guys, and there's gonna be guys that are not on these ballots, fake ballots that people are gonna be like, wow, that guy's not even that guy's not even at the top 5. For MVP, with that said, go ahead, number 5. Number 5 for me is Kevin Durant. Who, you know, has been in this conversation at this point in this last season. I think two years ago, he already had had injuries by this point, I was city out back to backs. And then he was one of those players who faded from the conversation, unfortunately last season because of the injuries he had, but to keep Brooklyn afloat. I thought kind of his I felt like his comments last week about the starting lineup that he was playing with were actually it was kind of shockingly underplayed in this modern media climate for him to come out and say like, hey, look at these other guys, I'm playing with. What do you expect from us? That was pretty harsh. I felt like, but he's kept Brooklyn afloat. All of a sudden, Ben Simmons is starting to play like what we envision Ben Simmons could play like. Don't do it. Don't suck, don't get yourself sucked in. Don't do it. I mean, I'm not picking them to win the championship or anything, but like, could they be outside of the play in? Yeah, that's possible. And if that's the case, and Kevin Durant continues to play at the level he's played at this thus far and stays healthy, then, yeah, he probably ends up on the MVP ballad, right? And that's the other thing we're so early in the season that with some exceptions at the low, low, low end of the standings. I didn't really even pay attention to records. Like people, like step, for instance, the warriors are 8 and 9, and I can hear people, yeah, give the MVP to someone on a losing team. Then you look at the Mavericks after a pooh pooh lost to the backup Denver Nuggets last night without jokic and Murray, they're 9 and 7. There's like no qualitative difference between teams at that sort of middle squeeze of the standings. So the nets are 8 and 9 also sniffing 500 their announcements were very exciting. Oh my God, they could claw back claw their way back to 500. After a win over the grizzlies without John morant Desmond Bain and jaren Jackson junior last night in Brooklyn here, Durant's numbers, 30, 6.6 rebounds, 5.3 assists, 53% shooting 33% from deep 59% on twos. They are about even with him on the floor and minus one with him off the floor. So the differential that you would want for a quote unquote value MVP isn't quite there, but then you look with Durant without Kyrie plus four per 100 possessions. Durant without Simmons and Kyrie plus three per 100 possessions. And then you just talked about the fact that this team actually still exists and hasn't been contracted or relegated to the G league over the last three weeks is I think a testament to him and what he did with those aforementioned players with we illustrated on an MBA today with all 5 defenders just keyed in on him the passing the difficult shot making. He's totally bought in on defense. He likes these guys. You can tell he loves wanton Abe, who's a fantastic story. Utah watanabe, I think they showed last night at 16 of 21 on corner threes for the season.
A highlight from The Best of The Dan Patrick Show
"Got our play of the day coming up, we'll settle on a poll question as well. We'll hear from a variety of people, including Patrick Mahomes, Kirk D cousins, and dak Prescott. That'll be coming up. It's a USA versus Wales, World Cup, and as I mentioned, the niners against the Cardinals later on tonight. We look at the NFL and it's a copycat league. I go back to the greatest show on turf. When we had the St. Louis rams. And then everybody thought, oh, let's do 5 wide. Let's invite the blitz. But not everybody was going to be Kurt Warner or those wide receivers or have a Marshall falcon there. But that didn't stop teams from wanting to be the greatest show on turf. Go back to the Tampa two defense. Everybody copied that, took it from the Buccaneers, Bill Walsh, the West Coast offense, people took that and ran with it or passed with it. You had the two tight end situation with the Patriots. You had Gronk, of course, standing out and become a Hall of Famer with Tom Brady. Aaron Hernandez, while he was still there, and I know that you look at a quarterback and you want to have a great tight end, like Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce. And you can say, well, this is, let's try to emulate that. Well, first of all, you can't emulate mahomes, and you can't emulate Travis Kelce. This doesn't strike me as a copycat league. Let's try to be what they are because those are two first ballot Hall of Famers. And you're looking at Travis Kelce. And it's sometimes you forget how great he is. And as Chris collinsworth pointed out last night, he's a great receiver. Not just great tight end. He's a great receiver. Once he gets the ball, he's going to score. And he's done that so far this year. Having a career year in his 33 right now, I don't know where he ranks because when we talk about tight ends, the position has changed. I go back to Kellen Winslow as the first real athletic tight end. John Mackey was very athletic. You had Mike Ditka. Todd Christensen was a really good receiving tight end for the Raiders. And then we felt like everybody was getting that 6 four 6 5. Antonio Gates, you got Tony Gonzalez Shannon Sharpe. There are a lot of really good tight ends who could take advantage of a matchup against the linebacker. And then you had Gronk. And then Gronk was just different. Now, Gronk the best tight end of all time, I guess we could argue that he's the guy that I won if I have to score a touchdown and we're in the red zone and I'm going to use my tight end. But, you know, you look at Tony Gonzalez's numbers. I don't think those are going to be touched. By any tight end, Travis Kelce is a little bit different, though. Because he didn't play his first two years, I don't think. And here he is 33, you start to look at the numbers. He doesn't have 800 catches yet. Has 10,000 yards. I mean, going to be a Hall of Famer. But boy, does it help when he got Patrick Mahomes? Tyra kills gone. So there's more attention for Travis Kelce there. And you saw that last night. I don't think there's anybody who thought Patrick Mahomes doesn't have enough time to be able to go down and score and beat the Chargers. As soon as you look at the time and you go, he's got two time out, yeah, it's over. Yeah, that's how I felt. No. And look, I was rooting for the Chargers because I picked the Chargers go to the Super Bowl. And I just realized they're just certain things where in sports you accept it. You just go, all right. Gonna lose. And it zips zip zip and then it's over. And you go, he makes it look a little too easy there. There's a couple of quarterbacks where you go, come on. Make him struggle a little bit. And mahomes is on the sidelines. He's just talking to his teammates. Like, how much time are they going to give me here? What are you guys doing for Thanksgiving? Oh, I got to go in and win the game. All right, hold on, I'll be back. That was the feeling that I had. Here is Patrick Mahomes talking about the greatness of Travis Kelce. He's going to keep fighting until the very end. When you see that, I think not only is impressive for him, but it gets other guys going. I mean, like I said, he's one of the best not the best tight end of all time and he's coming to work every single day to get better. And so that shows you when you step in the facility, you're like, man, I gotta get to work if this guy's doing it. I have to be able to at least match that. So that leadership that he brings as well as the play he brings in the field is special and it takes a lot off my shoulders. For it to have been working on your Patrick Mahomes? I had a feeling we were going to pull it out Justin Herbert's really good, but as long as there's a couple of circus on the clock, we'll take it. You haven't done your Patrick Mahomes impersonation to Patrick Mahomes. I have not. But you've done your Shannon shark. Thanks to you. Super Bowl week, a while back. Why don't you do your show? He does a pretty does a shot in shot, but he went to do that for him. I know. And he was in studio with us. All right, let me hear it. Let me hear how we did. I think the problem with people.
A highlight from Injuries Ravage the League Already
"Welcome to open floor, I'm John Gonzalez joined by SI's own Rohan nod knee roe. Happy Thanksgiving week, happy U.S. MNT versus Wales day, are you into the World Cup? John, okay, a couple of things I wanted to address here, the start of the show. First of all, I have to apologize. We got an email from Matt villanueva who said, in all caps to me, specifically, stop talking over people. When you do the show, this is, this has been a long running problem from the day I started doing this podcast. And the problem is I just get excited. I'm just excited. I love talking hoops with you John. I love talking to hoops with Chris. I'm sorry. I know it's a problem, so I just wanted to acknowledge that off the jump. I know. I listened back to the podcast and I get annoyed for myself. So in spirit of Thanksgiving week, I'm back home in South Florida. Still hot here. Yesterday it rained like cats and dogs for 14 hours straight. So typical Florida nonsense. My parents are DISH Network subscribers and DISH Network has been in a dispute with Fox. For like years now and so I can't watch the World Cup. Like I'm at home and I can't none of it. Don't you have do you have like any service that you stream from LA that you could ostensibly watch it on and or if not? Then I use my parents services. We have an antenna, but it's like a complicated and like, you know, it's a whole thing. The antennas, the antenna should be like 5% easier than it is. Well, the answer then is you got to go to a bar and watch it. Because we're about an hour. As we record this program, we're about an hour and a half from the U.S. and Wales kicking. So you got to get out there. So we're going to rattle through this podcast because we all know what's actually important today. Coming up later in the show injuries. We're just going to talk about a lot of injuries. Dame Willard Paul George tyrese Maxie and also now Joel embiid right before we started recording. That came out. Headline of this podcast is Joel embiid ducking Ben Simmons. We'll get into that. Mike Connolly Russell Westbrook and John Moran. Those are all injuries that we must address. And then we will wrap up with a topic that you and I are both very excited about. Latter gate, Gianna Santa Tacoma, picked a postgame fight in the last city in the world where you'd want to do that. But for the fight. Interesting. We'll discuss who picked the fight with whom. But first, don't call it a comeback Kyrie and Kauai have been here for years, both Kyrie, Irving, and Kawhi Leonard have returned ro I'll let you pick which one do you want to start with? Kyrie or Kauai. Let's start with Kauai. All right, we'll go to Kauai. So Kawhi Leonard returned for the clippers. He made his first appearance on Thursday. He had 6 points in 25 minutes in an extremely ugly win over the pistons, and then he followed that up with 11 points in 22 minutes in a win over the spurs that wasn't too difficult. He said that returning from an ACL injury can be a two year process and he called it a long journey, row. How do you look? I mean, you know, I guess he didn't look great what I would say, but it's not like he looked bad either. It's just, the reason I wanted to bring it up, John, is it's weird. It's weird what's happening here, and I don't expect us to get any answers anytime soon, because that's been the nature of Kawhi Leonard's career. But to recap kind of his season, so he tears his ACL now in 2021, he tears it. During the playoff run now, granted these playoffs went later into the summer, the normal, so it was around everything July 2021 when he actually tore the ACL close to it, June, breathing perhaps. And you know, he sits out all of last season. He comes back to this one, he placed two games, 21 minutes each in those games doesn't start, comes off the bench. And then they're just like, he's out. He's out definitely. Misses a whole mess of games comes back, plays these two more. He's still on the minutes restriction. I understand he's later in his career, he's had injuries. You look at a guy like Jamal Murray. Now, we haven't talked about him specifically too much on his podcast yet. I don't think Jamal Murray has looked great to start the season. You could tell he's still playing to get his legs back under him. At the same time, he's been out there for most of the nuggets games. He's playing major minutes.
A highlight from Hour 3 - CFP Final Four Speculation, Joel Klatt
"Radio. Final hour in this Monday, more phone calls, 8 7 7 3D P show, operator, Tyler standing by. We'll talk some college football, Joel klatt, the great analyst for Fox Sports will join us coming up here in a little bit. Odds to win the college football title, it's still Georgia, then Ohio State, and then the Michigan is third, but a distant third TCU is even a distant fourth. Clemson is down there. USC, USC right now, 25 to one where TCU 18 to one Clemson 22 to one LSU 35 to one. Georgia is the overwhelming favorite, along with Ohio State and then you have Ohio State against Michigan in Columbus coming up next weekend. Whenever new coach takes over a college football team, we sometimes expect a quicker turnaround at least in the last couple of years. Brian Kelly and Sonny dykes have done a great job LSU and TCU, Lincoln Riley at USC and then you start to look at some of these other stops with what's going on with Jimbo Fisher and Texas a and M, you're supposed to be turning. You turned it around in the opposite direction there. And you had this big recruiting class you told everybody at a big recruiting class. You called out Nick Saban and after Nick Saban, apparently called you out. How you get your players ask him how he gets his players and your bottom off. And then all of a sudden, you don't deliver whatsoever. Look, we made fun of Brian Kelly in the accent. Nobody's making fun of the accent anymore. When you win, you can win your way out of anything. And then USC has Notre-Dame, and then USC will have the PAC 12 title game as well. And you start to look at the path to get into the playoffs. If Michigan wins that gang, what happens to Ohio State? If it's Ohio State wins in its close, what happens to Michigan? Can somebody sneak in? Well, USC can. TCU has had close games. Are they going to hold that against them? You always get the feeling of TCU can actually win its way out of the top four. By not putting up an impressive performance. It'd be hard to take an undefeated team out, or at least you feel like the playoff committee is like, they're still here, huh? It's been a good But I don't think if USC played TCU on a neutral field. USC by 6, 7. That sounds about right. We could check. You ever see two points away from being undefeated this year. Utah lost. Two points. Yeah. But then you can't slip up against Notre-Dame, and then you have the PAC 12 title game. Yes, tonight. For some strange reason, Michigan blew out Ohio State. Could they actually drop from two to out of the whole thing? At home if Ohio State lost at home, they lost by like 30 points. Could they go from two to 5 from one very bad embarrassing loss to mission? I can ask Joel clad that coming up. I don't know. I don't know what the voters are all in on CJ Stroud for the Heisman it feels like right now. And Ohio State is the second best team in college football. But if you lose at home, two Michigan, a Michigan beat them at the big house last year. Yeah. Is there anybody else that you think is going to get an invite to New York? 'cause it seems like one of those three nominee type years. You know, three years where there's like 5 people and then there's some years where there's like three. Well, I hope hooker gets invited. But you know, he's for the season he had now he's out after his ACL. He might not even be in physical condition to go to New York. But Tennessee had a wonderful year and so did he. CJ Stroud, Caleb Williams, I guess Blake quorum from Michigan, max duggan, Jaden Daniels, LSU, I don't know. You know? Are you going to have enough for three to go there? I mean, you got to fill an hour long program and Chris Fowler going to need some players that he can interview there. But yeah, that feels like it would maybe three. Maybe. All right, we'll get the phone calls best and worst of the weekend, your phone calls, and Joel clapp will join us coming up. Paul and Illinois leads us off this final hour. Hi Paul. ADP. 5, ten, two 40. Yeah, I got a good story about my buddy letting his kids name their pets. He's got a rabbit named turkey sandwich and a dog named four Wheeler. Four Wheeler. Okay. Yeah. You know, if it's a child's pet, then sure, you can name them. I mean, you can help them. You can say, hey, how about maybe this one instead? They can guide them a little bit there. Justin and Indiana, I adjusted. ADP, 5 ten, soft 200.

That'll be coming up, it's a USA versus Wales, World Cup, and as I mentioned, the niners against the Cardinals later on tonight. We look at the NFL and it's a copycat league. I go back to the greatest show on turf. When we had the St. Louis rams, and then everybody thought, oh, let's do 5 wide. Let's invite the blitz. But not everybody was going to be Kurt Warner or those wide receivers or have a Marshall falcon there. But that didn't stop teams from wanting to be the greatest show on turf. Go back to the Tampa two defense. Everybody copied that, took it from the Buccaneers. Bill Walsh, the West Coast offense. People took that and ran with it, or passed with it. You had the two tight end situation with the Patriots. You had Gronk, of course, standing out and become a Hall of Famer with Tom Brady. Aaron Hernandez, while he was still there, and I know that you look at a quarterback and you want to have a great tight end, like Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce. And you can say, well, this is, let's try to emulate that. Well, first of all, you can't emulate mahomes, and you can't emulate Travis Kelce. This doesn't strike me as a copycat league. Let's try to be what they are because those are two first ballot Hall of Famers. And you're looking at Travis Kelce. And it's sometimes you forget how great he is. And as Chris collinsworth pointed out last night, he's a great receiver. Not just great tight end. He's a great receiver. Once he gets the ball, he's going to score. And he's done that so far this year. Having a career year in his 33 right now, I don't know where he ranks because when we talk about tight ends, the position has changed. I go back to Kellen Winslow as the first real athletic tight end. John Mackey was very athletic. You had Mike Ditka. Todd Christensen was a really good receiving tight end for the Raiders. And then we felt like everybody was getting that 6 four 6 by Antonio Gates, you know, you got Tony Gonzalez Shannon Sharpe. There are a lot of really good tight ends who could take advantage of a matchup against the linebacker. And then you had Gronk and then Gronk was just different. Now Gronk the best tight end of all time, I guess we could argue that he's the guy that I want if I have to score a touchdown and we're in the red zone and I'm going to use my tight end.

And you go, he makes it look a little too easy there. There's a couple of quarterbacks where you go, come on. Make him struggle a little bit. And my Holmes is on the sidelines. He's just talking to his teammates. Like, how much time are they gonna give me here? What are you guys doing for Thanksgiving? Oh, I gotta go in and win the game. All right, hold on, I'll be back.

I had a feeling we were going to pull it out. Justin Herbert's really good, but as long as there's a couple of suckers on the clock, we'll take it.
