Kevin Durant, NBA, Espn discussed on SportsCenter AllNight
It's a two series right now. ESPN ESPN's, Myron medcalf. The bucks are in trouble. Like you cannot talk about this in any other way. But the fact that the number one team in the NBA team that won sixty games the team, that has Jaanus who supposed to be the MVP. They're in trouble. They went in one two games. Here they are two and they look like an inexperienced group, they look like a group that thought they had it thought they were on the way to the finals that got punched back in the mouth, and here, the going back to Milwaukee limping back to Milwaukee Janas. Is not the nineteen year old. He was a few years ago, and the guy who was this promising prospect, he's an MVP candidate hood, and I'm not gonna treat them any other way if he fails in these next three games that's going to be an important part of his young legacy. He's got a show up because I think this bucks team to go from being one of the best stories in the NBA to being one of the biggest disappointment if they don't capitalize on this opportunity that they haven't frontal as for Toronto. Kyle Lowry is dealing with a bump on his non shooting hand and we've seen an occasional lymph from Colli Leonard. Earlier Audie SPN radio T has an analyst, Josh Lewin bird. I I'm impressed by it. I was thinking about this today for no other reason, San Antonio Spurs fan. They're not going to be happy to hear this. But quite Leonard is as we know a few months away from free agency. He's got a lot of money on the line potentially two hundred plus million. If he stays in Toronto and signs the max and at this point he owned it. He's got nothing left to prove from that standpoint. Certain players, maybe not a lot of them. But certain players in that situation might just say, all right. I'm going to protect my interests year nothing guesting that he would not play. But maybe not go full speed, especially if he's somewhere where he doesn't wanna be long term and just say, all, I, I'm gonna make sure that I, I don't take any risks here, but he's laying it out all on the line. He's emptying the take your he's playing through an injury of unknown severity. And I'm not sure if that speaks to maybe his connection with the lockers, being stronger than some people think that it is or that speaks to its competitive nature. And the fact that he just wants to compete championship win a championship regardless of where he is. And what he plans on doing if you months from now. Dame, five Eastern Conference finals coming up on Thursday. It's here on ESPN radio as every game until a champion is crowned sportscenter allnight ESPN radio. As for the west warriors took care of that. And they're of course, waiting for the winner of the east, then once the NBA finals wrapped up. Then blood for Golden State is Kevin Durant really undecided. Jump Ramona Shelburne, Byron Scott with our Rachel Nichols. I don't think that they have to make an ironclad decision before they have all the information. Why would they? Why would they make a call now? Kevin durant. Certainly could not have predicted going into this playoffs that he was start the first around people saying, oh my God. He's consensus best player in the game. But then the next round and a half people saying the words don't even need.
