Listen: Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, Dave discussed on The Leadoff Spot
"That's what I do. I drink and I know things a great call. Kevin the broken the reference to brand the broken which you ask the question, who's got a better story saying things game of thrones. Steph curry Klay Thompson, Draymond green. I'll I don't know. You get Steve curry can whole bunch of does, who should be sitting on the Larry O'Brien thrown, I guess, is what we're talking about Klay Thompson, how you feel headed into game four. And how big of it was was it for you to rest game three economically fight it? And I understand where they're coming from just, you know, knowing as we've been here before we've been down to on before three one before, and it's a long series ahead. So they knew while you're talking about show better. rest up a couple of days instead of risking tweaking it'd be not the whole series rather than going balls out for just one game going up a one game when we could lose me yeah so he i mean he's aware of this but he also talked about how frustrated he was the man you play your whole life trying to get to the n._b._a. finals you said it just sucks to miss a finals game we know what a driver klay thompson is he did not part of me thinks that this is a little a little ironman thing going on he knew that he had the street going did not want to miss a game put also i empathize with that or i with that this is a finals game this is why you play the game you're entire life you get to the top of the mountain and you're not even able to compete with your team has got to be frustrating ninety five in the cache creek text line says i'm i'm glad that one hundred percent of dub nation realizes that they need to have kevin durant if i was katie i wouldn't come back till game five and save everyone's ask yeah okay that would be great i would love to have kevin durant back on the floor i do think if he comes back this series could be over pretty shortly after that but tonight's going to be a crucial one you've got to get this w you cannot go back to toronto And potentially not have Kevin Durant for game five you'll sort of wanna have to overcome a three one deficit with two of those games being played on the road. Dave, and who's to say that he's going to be one percent? He's the guy who was a month ago to say he's gonna play Dave. I mean how did we get we make into this weekend? And they go yeah. We'll maybe gave six like, I, you know, or, or Steve Kerr sits down, and we say Kay, the plane, and he just says, not today not today not today. He's not playing nine to five or six five oh. Here's the question. How come Kevin Durant does not sit on the bench and cheer up the players on the bench likely Thompson did because he's out of here? See that's where I draw the line. I don't think it has anything to do with him on his way out the door. I don't think this is him saying, I'm better than the team. I don't need to sit with team. I totally disagree with the six five. Oh, I think this is all part of the ploy to not let anybody know how her Kevin Durant is right in the NFL. They don't let players that are hurt go into the locker room. Tom Brady can't go into patriots locker room when he's injured. He has to go in all players. They go in another entrance and they go out that same entrance. How about the theory to oh, nine says that Kevin Durant reinjured his calf celebrating the dubs win over Houston. It's kind of like Henry's Morales hit a walk off home run towards ACL jumping on plate. The team is jumping on top of him. And then he's done for the year one of the Arizona Cardinals kicker. Once he kicks a field goal wins the game. And he jumps in celebrates pops his Hammy or something like that. And he was out for the season four zero eight six Katie comes back and get him six. That's another week of treatment, which makes five weeks. If the original prognosis was three to six weeks was that the original prognosis thought the original prognosis was, he's had this calf strain before. And he missed a week week four. And we've seen none of Kevin Durant, the bigger concern, I think, for Steve Kerr is how he's going to fill out this rotation. What are you going to get from DeMarcus cousins can Andrew bogut continue to be effective is Jordan, Bella guy, you turn to, or do you just hope that this second opinion on Covad looney says he's able to go Steve Kerr on the? Von looney update. We're gathering information, the second opinion type thing. And so it's sort of open. It's an open question. And as we gather information, we'll, we'll know more. But at this point, there's not really anything to report a where we are looking at all of our options and news options. Yeah. So we'll see what happens with, with kevon looney. Dave. This is where we go into our Batman tease again. Right. Are Burt ward? Adam west Batman, will kevon looney come back from the costal cartilage, tear, then. That's exactly it will we'll Kevin Durant return for game six of the NBA finals. Is this the final game at oracle arena? Should Stevens have been banned from the NBA for life.."
