Listen: Pelicans, Bagley And Orlando Magic discussed on Big Time Basketball
"If gametime. It's panicked meter time. Let's do let's do a little game here. You're on Scallon Palace. This is going to be the panic meter game for teams. I got a list of teams that have struggled earlier in the season. I want you guys to rank what their panic meter would be at one to ten one the being not that bad and ten being like Defcon one. So let's start here. We've already kind of done. The rockets and the blazers all those teams. Let's start here perk. I'll start with you panic. Hanoch meter one to ten nets three and four off to a rough start. Curry's been amazing offensively. But they're bad on defense. What's what's their panic meter early in the season a like a three I wouldn't I wouldn't look to point it? I think they're GONNA win. I think they're gonNA win the night on if you look at a team. They got talented team. Would Liberte in gas trying to find ways. Listen the Games that they've lost. It's not like they got blown out like they was in every game so I think they're they're gonNA eventually make the playoffs. I wouldn't how Brooklyn I think they're gonNA make the playoffs. I wouldn't panic too much in my opinion. I'm not panicking it all. I think they've made a good. If you got Kyrie on your team you stay at a panic meter three even if everything is good. So they're more like six or seven. I three to perk. So I I. I'm not worried like this season almost doesn't matter for them. We're waiting until Katie gets back. I don't know Sunday's Rudy. Don't start the deceased at night. Every everything in that just every day. They're not just throwing this season away. Salud like no no. I'm not saying I'm not saying they are. I'm not saying they are. I just say no. Just say from a from a Fan's perspective uh-huh thing like the players are GonNa tank at every night because like we're just gonNA wait for Katie to get back to. We won't try hard. I just think like the real pressure and the judgment on this team will be next year not this year so I ah let's not let's not get bogged down. I WANNA move on. Let's move onto this one. This is this is one. Near and dear to my heart we have to get the best one. The two and six Orlando Magic. They are in elite defensive team and they are a horrifically terrible offensive team. I believe they have love the their net rating their offensive rating is like four points worse than the twenty one thousand nine. which is the Knicks? Like they'd been that bad on offense but they do listen. They play some tough team they they they play. Good Defense Perk one to ten panic meter for the Orlando Magic. I give them a one. I'm not panicking Annette. Oh you know what I'm not paying that no. I'm not panicking because I didn't have them doing shit this year. Anyway I knew they weren't going to I thought I told I told you that before the season started. I tell say don't be too high on the magic on that. How them this year coming out of the east and I told you this norm not panicking? They they all who I thought they was going to be named showing they gotta what I do so they gotta get like if they want to make the playoffs if they wanna make the playoffs. They're panicked meter should be a lot higher. It can't be that bad offensively so we've been talks of traits for a long time there. Can you have this guy this guy this guy they should probably start making trade to get their offense going wing figuring out a way to scale maybe no no no no no no no no I and you can score school. He's going to give you better. He's GonNa get you better is the goodwill. Now they're shooting they're shoring. Ah Are horrifically. Low percents from three. Like you've got to think that at some point like their averages are gonNA come in there they're not gonNA shoot this poorly forever like terrence Ross has been you know a a horrifically bad shooting and he was a really good shooter last year. digi Augustine same thing boosts which I i. Don't think a guy like dion waiters is the answer. I think the real question is i. I think that scholars thrown out there is like do they. Aaron Gordon for a guy like de Ngelo Russell Lewis. This Day is a difference. This team is still who they are is last year was Cerruti they just snuck up on people. They was hunting. Now guys will be like okay just the magic team so when they come in guys looking at them differently guys get a rest like. Hey this team may no joke man. So now that team's eight-game and we'll see exactly who they are then then not who we thought they are. They just snuck somebody less. That's all they did and yet my mom is a one because I didn't have him being shit anyway got so that really hurts me. It really hurts me all right. We gotta get you. We only have a couple of minutes left. Let's do this. This'll be an obvious one the two and six Sacramento Kings per they added panicked chain. They added there is no way you start up to a six Bagley. Liane out is no way not to six in the West. I don't see it happen. I don't see it happen. I don't see that I just don't see they have they. They need hit the panic button right now. So vast in in a hurry. They're just like the mansion now. Guys are coming in the net taking sacramental uh-huh king seriously but he'll starting to see that is not that easy. No more guys are putting their best depend on. Not Credit is is planning his ass off right now but he can't get it done by itself. Yeah I'd be worried I guess until bag comes. I don't even know what Bagley is good. I think he's good but I don't really know if he's good but until he is good he who okay so if he comes back and just once he comes back and we can adjust a panic new book right now they just don't look good enough to win games in the western conference right. All right the three reinstates Chicago Bulls Panic WANNA ten. Wow you're bigger. Go home here. I like this it is. I don't like listen. I'm telling you these young teams that's coming out that needs to come out trying to make a statement. They made statements early the season. Like you know what I mean like. The House will be right where we expected them to be. trae young got hurt not allows Colin. So you kind of get him a pass because a calendar suspension and stuff like that but if you are a young team that's trying to come out here and do some trying to put a stamp on the League then you come out to Phoenix Suns at all right now they come out with on a mission to be elsewhere. We come out with something to prove we not just by that we saw on your right now. You jump out early that way you get yourself a little room in margin the era down the lines in case you drop a few games throughout at the middle of the season you got off to. This fast thought that you go to do it. I'm not panicking. They lead the NBA in turnover differential. So taking care of the ball and they're turning people over eventually they'll figure it out but there is some truth to Winnie gangs. You talk about stuff. You could talk about off season using workout. We come down to winning games. That is an extra hustle. Here an extra block out here a quick extra pass to Guy Wide Open you. You have a good shot you go to a great shot. They don't do that stuff yet. They're still like doing their individual workouts while they're playing but I think what I watch play do a lot of a good thing so I would not be panicking just yet until you got a young stood though. Look Koby Eagle. Who'd yeah like in Milan all right? Let's sneak one more in here guys before we run out of time really quickly perk. Pelicans one six obviously knows I on. They've had some injury issues. What's there's panic meter one to ten ten like you know like because it is it is really like all these teams like we? We had had high expectations for the Pelicans even on like we thinking in listen brandon. Ingram is planned his ass off right now like this kid is playing outside inside his body and yet the Pelicans can't win games and like Jewish holiday has been a disappointment of Lonzo ball has been a disappointment opponent. You know of you look at I love what Okafor is doing relate the end of the day. You GotTa Win Games. You cannot be one in six and get up to this type of start in the Western Conference finals and think that it's not time the hidden panicked but like they was desperate to get a win tonight. I think it was on Halloween. alouine like they had to really go out there fight in and really get away and not I never. I didn't have the PELICANS making the playoffs this year. Because I said in the near future will they will be great with the talent that they have. But I didn't notice what I was. I on the Debbie up to one in six thought right now. So I'm hitting the panic button because I don't want a couple of games I could see this getting real ugly I could see maybe a David Griffin Making a coaching change. I ain't on Alvin Gentry. I could see this kind of turn around there in the near future like real soon in a couple of wins star. Come around for the PELICANS. I'm with the Pelicans they suck defensively. I I don't get it. They're they have enough offensively they plan. They can't stop anybody they shouldn't have gotten. I believe they shouldn't have gotten rid of Dan. Herb who had them in the top defensive rank is every year but the last three years. And you get rid of how you get rid of that Guy Ah like did you do your research. He was the coach. It's fair I I'm not hanging on them just yet. Yeah I"
