A highlight from 06/16/2021 - Best Of The Herd


Join i match today. Were wearing yellow. This one time of year. I wear it enjoys where all address i swear to god we. We did not plan this. It's just the way it worked out. I can't believe something's in the air you know what it is. It's the summer that's my favorite time of the year. La people are at the beach. Happy happy sons out masks off free. Who so weird down the promenade yesterday and like walking into a store fumble with my mask. They're like you don't need it. How good that feels like. Frigging scrape. That's like freedom. It's great to have you in today. You ever watch the news especially like cnn or fox news or msnbc on cable and they'll have an expert on military expert political experts. They just throw that word around like everybody is an expert the other day. I'm watching the show. And they're talking about ufo's and they had a ufo expert. And i'm thinking. How can you be an expert in something. You've never really seen up. Close tar to be an expert like to me. An expert was like a veterinarian with animals. That would be an expert but everybody on these networks is throwing out expert. He's an expert on ufo's and military and foreign affairs. And i'm always a little skeptical. I'd like to introduce you to an expert. Kevin durant is an offensive expert in offensive basketball. That's what an expert looks like. He can dribble he can fade. He can hit threes. he can drive. He can finish he can slash. He is a complete offensive machine. Do you know how exhausting it is to play forty eight minutes of an nba game. How exhausting that is. That's a nine thousand calorie burn it. It's not like katie's got extra pudding. He's skinny as great player ever. He plays an entire game. Forty nine minutes. Seventeen rebounds. ten assists has to defend. That was an all time performance. And what just remarkable the last five seasons in which. He's been healthy at the end of it. He has been the best offensive player on the best team. So this is not a surprise. And that game. I mean if you really think about it. Now that lebron's and his out there really is no competition for the best player because this has been a seventy five twenty five offense over defense league. Janas can't shoot kyrie has struggled with injuries. Dame's a small player. Lucas too young eighty can't stay healthy and beads got injuries. James harden has no playoff credibility. Coli he's hurt again kind of a question mark. This is now that lebron at lebrons always been sort of the roadblock. Now that he's out. This is kevin's league. It should be kevin's leak. The last five seasons in which he's been healthy at the end he's been like the best player on the best team and it was really funny watching this game last night is did you notice how emotional durant was and steve. Nash was at the end of that. Game like kevin's not on the floor. He'll be frustrated time to time but he's not he's not a fist pumper that that's not really his thing right. He's kind of stoic. Sometimes did you see emotional. He was because i think kevin knows last night's win there in the finals. I don't care about philadelphia. i don't care about atlanta. I don't care about the bucks. I think kevin knew i got up by time tonight. Kyri will come back eventually. It's probably the next series and harden was obviously going to be rusty. He was that first quarter. It was like as james ever played basketball. I've inc kevin new. Can i buy us a night. That's it. I just got to get us a night if i can get through this. It's the same way. I look at the football season. When join i go into a football season. You can take out for five months. And i always look at thanksgiving if i can get thanksgiving. I'm not sick. i'm ready to go. I can see the next monday. I show up after thanksgiving. I can see light at the end of the tunnel. I can see christmas vacation. I thought kevin durant at the end of that game. he knew. Okay if i can get past tonight hardens not going to be really good. He's not gonna be one hundred percent he's not gonna have as timing he's not going to be able to really defend and he got him through it. I mean that's what an offensive expert looks like to be that effortless data officiant in the biggest game of the year against a supposedly great defensive team. There again what's amazing about great players. And i and i know we talk about him nonstop. But i've said this multiple times does everybody understand. How much greater like peyton. Manning brady kobe bryant michael jordan durant. Lebron think about this. Every time kevin durant in his entire career after maybe his rookie season goes into a game. The whole game plan is stop that guy and nobody can. I mean that's that's what greatness koby for most of his career gotta stop kobe tonight. You looked at film koby. Nobody was sitting around breaking down film. On derek fisher or brian shaw. When you really think about how great peyton manning was he got. Everybody's best shot like defensive. I've talked at offensive coordinators. They're like peyton manning week it's payton. It's tom brady week where you don't want to be humiliated like milwaukee does not want to be humiliated win they play. Kevin durant hardens. Not one hundred percent kyrie's playing so milwaukee this great defensive team new. Just stop kevin.

Coming up next
