We got sixers but he could also just be someone who gets stuck to the bench at some point as well because he's very inconsistent or shoots an air ball with one minute left wide open. There were airballs being shot. There were passes being thrown off other guys faces. A why I'm telling you like from possession. Possession with this team is crazy. It was crazy. The sixers too fast breaks there at the last minute. And that pass off Matisse tables face a three on one break. I'm I tweet. I'm surprised the Internet didn't break after that. Like no one gave a crap about five taking the ball to a part of it was like the sixers They kept the ball on the possessor. Yeah Yeah So. Maybe it was a real Yankee sack moment. That's for sure Well the nets. Gm Sean Marks announced yesterday that Kyrie Irving will undergo season surgery on his right shoulder. Kyri had visited a specialist over the past few days before making the decision. He missed twenty six games over the span nearly two months with that right shoulder impingement before eventually returning in mid January following the cortisone shop. But that's it. We predicted this on yesterday's podcasts. This is likely going to happen. If if he's not playing now and they're saying indefinitely why wouldn't they just shut them down for the season and undergo the surgery and that's what's happening here but there's a you know it was interesting. I was listening to Ben Gulliver on the open globe open floor. Excuse me podcasts. Like railing on the nets for this like the idea. That maybe with the nets even take a Mulligan on their off season with the buddy-ball of yeah. You Got Kevin Durant but you had to get Kyrie and you had to get the Andre Jordan if you consider it a pack which everybody sort of assumes it was but just ripping on this gap here for the nets and how poor Kyri has played or the team's success when he's out there eating twelve when he did play in those twenty games and just like how. It's been such a wasted season here. I was a little taken aback. Hell aggressive Gulliver was coming at it. But I'm interested to hear your thoughts like are you like yeah. This was like what a bummer of a season. Complete waste or more like. Whoa just what's it really matter? It's going to be completely different team when Katie's there and yeah you would have liked to see Kyri sort of try and get some chemistry going with a Dinwiddie or cares liver or those guys jared Allen. But let's not overreact. Where do you sort of fall in this with the NETS WEIRD SEASON? I think they would rather have had kyrie irving sit out the entire year. Just like Kevin Durant and not go through this up and down and even the twenty whatever games he's played. I don't think it's really benefited their chemistry at all and their cohesion. Usually you'd say it's good for him to get out there and play with the guys who's GonNa play with next year. It was a failure. I I agree. With Ben Golfers Mulligan that should be a segment on his show. Gulliver's Mulligan a don't I it was. It was a disappointing year for sure. It's just I think he doesn't like being not having a number one guy beside him. It's you just need. I don't know the the only time seeded is having Lebron beside him and he hasn't been able to be a number one guy and it was. It was kind of just leaves a bad taste in my mouth watching this team all year. I thought they'd be far better. They had to do it. Still I think if you get a chance to get durant and Kyrie irving even if the price is d Andre Jordan do it. I mean he's an upgrade. There's no question. There's an upgrade and talent there even though what the what the net showed us last year was a real team that were cohesive unit. But what was the ceiling for that team? Second round of the playoffs. They weren't a contender. I know they were just more enjoyable era. They were just With Kevin durant coming back next season assuming he's full health and assuming car is at health they are instantly vaulted into you. Know contended ch Status Yeah so yes you have to do it. But it certainly hasn't worked data and the issues surrounding Cari or not he he. He brings that baggage into the locker room. And I think we've seen some of that this season I think guys like Dinwiddie and even to a degree of sort of you know man I used to get all those shots last year. Cory comes in and he gets more. So that's an issue for Kenny. Atkinson insurance going forward but again I'd rather have that talent then the talent law season because I just feel they're more likely to be a contender deandre Jordan. I mean how good was he anyway? Like good but if that's what it took them to the next to get the other two guys but I don't think they like Dinwiddie or all. Those guys who lost some shots are to blame at all in this their playoffs. Good soldiers. Yeah we're never but you can understand the why these guys you know. Probably feel like man we we're actually. We've actually regressed from where we were lost season because cohesion Poopie. And it's like when Cari comes in signing that massive contract the coaches obviously going to be like we're going through this guy first so you guys have to fall in line and didn't really. I mean he's been great this season it really has and hit a clutch shot late last night missing another one but I love the way that the way this place and he believes in himself so you know if if you can get someone like Dinwiddie coming off the bench perhaps behind car and performing to this level then again that just makes the nets even a better team. Yeah the nets. Sold eighty four percent of tickets last year ninety two percent this year. That's really all that matters because the season didn't matter they made it to the playoffs. Regardless I mean there's still a chance that they could fall out. I don't necessarily think that's going to happen. care sliver missing. Twenty five games hurt well for for the team's record this season but it basically your trading Diangelo Russel who had an all-star season in two thousand eighteen nineteen for twenty games of Kyrie Irving. Of course you're going to be worse but more people came to the Games and I'm sure that's what matters because next season you're getting your real best player back. Hopefully he's not super diminished coming off injury and hopefully Kyrie irving able to get completely healthy. Because if you're able to say we got kyrie. Irving we got Kevin Durant. We've got some decent support guys that's GonNa get people the sign on those exceptions veteran minimums. So yeah I mean. It's a bummer. But to have kyrie irving barely played this season to have Kevin Durant not played Avci reserving when he does come back kind of trash the team not good certainly not good about. You're going to forget about it when you see number seven. Walk on the court next season. I mean it's I hope he's can play ninety ninety five percent to his prior skill level. I'm talking about durant here before the injury because it's not a given. I mean he's an older guy too young buck. I mean you've got to hope that taking the whole year off and not rushing back at all and yeah. It looks great in the video of him splashing threes. You hope he's near that. Mvp level but that MVP is going to be there for the taking. I think with the nets having a really underwhelming season here and yes a part of it is the Kyler injury and delivered injury but they come back if Katie's plugged in here and suddenly there. You know top one of the top two teams in the east and he's going to warrant and rightfully so hunt. Mvp consideration again. But I do wonder with the four guys. They're four main guys and I'm talking Katy Perry Dinwiddie and levert. Do you have to move one of those last? Two guys I mean are there enough. Is there enough shots? And the way they all play for the for them to to work. I'm not convinced Dinwiddie two years. He's about twenty four million. He's got the player option. And in two thousand twenty one twenty two and then lowered is about to start his three year like fifty million dollars plus extension next season a lot of money when you add then Katie. And I don't know maybe they look to move. One of those two guys could get something back probably to help your team. Yeah I immediately think the comparison with the warriors and there was enough to go around for Clay Steph and durant and they didn't really have a four th guy who needed shots so maybe the comparison is apple. Like yeah I get Dinwiddie in liver probably need shots. There was Sunday draymond. Green is the ball. Yeah I think they're going to probably lose Joe Harris Anyway. Which again a shootout doesn't the ball in his hands. Kyrie Irving didn't name him so yeah he's probably but that's the thing when you're talking about fit yeah. I don't there's enough for all those guys to get the ball. So Jared Allen. He doesn't need it so yeah but yeah you keep your best players. I guess is what you probably do. The Nets and those are your best players. So that's that's an interesting Chemistry experiment and also just from a media standpoint. They're going to be the villains I think next year Kyrie's talked a lot in the media. Kevin Durant has obviously talked in the past. And maybe it's the feelings. The Anti Kevin durant feelings have subsided because he hasn't been around for a while but he still has a burner account as he said it's going to it's going to happen. I think I think we need these wants to. You know it'd be great on the talk. And maybe maybe because they're winning they won't talk to the media and maybe they'll be bit more of a darling team but I want them to be built. Be Fun all right. Let's get to worst of.
