Automatic TRANSCRIPT

It doesn't mean they never won any rounds. But when they lost, they lost in four straight, so they fired twain, Casey. You know, it's sorta like dusty Baker. Right. Win playoff. Yeah. Let's get someone in the case of the nationals who can't get to the playoff so you don't have this problem. There's no, you never cooked blower. Right. So Nick nurse has never coached on the pro on that level as a head coach or anything like that Masai you Jiri, who is the president of the raptors fires Dwayne Casey who will week later is named coach of the year coach of the year for what he did in the regular season. You justify you say, well, we gotta do better in the playoffs. He hires Nick nurse on a playoff team you go. Wait a second. This does not happen. I mean it happened famously to Jeff Van Gundy, Jeff Van Gundy. When Pat Riley left they looked around, and they pick this little essay, you. Yeah. Yeah. What are you doing? And I would have said, had I been on TV, then who's this guy, and everybody would have said the same thing who's this guy? So step to Masai Eugene is to hire Nick nurse. Really Nick nurse will now he's in the final step three though. A much more important step than step two. Step three is he trades. He has to all star guards tomorrow Rosen and Nick Lowery, cut Kyle Kyle Lowry, rather who stink in the playoffs. Their averages are significantly below their regular season. Averages any trades. Damore derozen, who goes crazy. 'cause demar derozen loves it in Toronto. In toronto. He loves them in Toronto, he weeps at being traded. He gets traded to San Antonio. Kawhi Leonard, and you go. Oh, wow. That's a great trade. Leonard Colli Leonard is a one year rental property. He will be a free agent at the end of these playoffs at the end of this final. He is a complete unrestricted free agent. So Masai Jiri bits on one year. Now to me, this is a great in hindsight. It is a great move, because Leonard has taken them further than they ever went before. Now we'll bounce position is that they love him so that he will stay my position is are you crazy? He can walk away there and be a god-like figure what he's done already go play where he wants to play. He's from southern California. This. It's rare that, that people relocate in a place. That's forty degrees below zero most of the year. But maybe that's going to happen wants to go from anyone. Okay. Out of the midwest. So Michelle to foia did that, and I said, Michelle. So Nick nurse is thrilled to be on the PTI show when it's over when the interview is in the it's done. He text will like two or three times expressing his thrill at like this is the complement. He's always wanted to be on the show. He's very good. By the way. I mean he was very pleasant. He studied accounting in college at the university of northern Iowa, he was going to be an accountant. All-time three-point percentage leader at not not total numbers of. Right percent. He played there. He became he became a coach. I don't I think he's one of those fellas who looks around at night, and says, I'm pretty lucky. You know, this happened to me, he's now he's now on the verge of I would assume getting a really good contract. I wouldn't think contracting, thanks shoe. Think it'd be a really good contract, but if they lose if they lose Leonard your back. Let me let me say he may if I were in his shoes, I may recognize that I'm fortunate to be where I am. But it's not like the guy didn't pay his dues. The. Oh, stand in the Manchester giants and the London towers. I mean, you know, news rather see an assistant coach like that rewarded, for example, the worst. Offense at the Redskins committed with letting Sean McVay go, you know, there was a genius. You're right. But how, but I think I think it takes a takes courage by the team. President tap a first year assistant coach and give him this team that has been a failure, but I wish they would do that more rather than just going back to the same gene pool of writing coaches, the same, you know, often white men who were someplace else, recite. Well mic nurses, a white, man..
