Aaron Gordon Makes His Debut for the Nuggets Against the Hawks
"All right. Get into a little bit of basketball here. Aaron gordon the big acquisition at the deadline for the denver nuggets made his debut sunday verse. The hawks a solid debut might look the line and say thirteen points on six of nine shooting. That is exactly what the nuggets want. He played really well off to coca shed a beautiful dunk on the baseline. This is what they want him to be. They want him to be a cutter playing with better players for the first time in his career. I mean he's played with better players and vuckovich but not a player. I'm nicola yokich is standards. I just wondered when aaron gordon went over to the nuggets. Would he be able to cut that dribbling out. He played more like a superstar more ball in his hands. I'm going to do this thing on my own. Can he be a support player. He used nicole yoga's gravity pretty well in this game they will pick and roll action going nine shots. The only misses were from three point. Land the more tuesday better with aaron gordon. But he if he can fill that jeremy grant role that they lost last year in the playoffs. Just be that guy who's a third option and hit shots. I mean that is absolutely
Aaron Gordon Addresses Trade Request
"Denver took care of orlando by double digits. And the magic's aaron gordon was very open about his trade request on his zoom presser after the game. I'm not sure if. I should applaud him for his forthrightness. Or if i yearn for the days where players would keep their demands. A little bit more covert. Screw it good for him even if it hurts the magic can get in return because they have little leverage. This seventh year player needs a new start. And he's been telling his team management for awhile that they need to change their ways as he candidly said on. Zoom that info doesn't really help their off-season attractiveness. Either but i heard the lines at disney are very short right now.

"Oh they need other guys out there. Seth curry who's been good for the mid season. He wasn't really feeling lost not harrison. I thought he was good. So yeah overall. I just a good wine full philadelphia because as i said l. If they drop this one after leading it old night and the why the lake is closed that would have just been a devastating in for them and embiid twenty points and six rebounds but he wasn't like he didn't didn't completely dominate but he certainly did again picky spots and looked be aggressive. And that's what it needs through. Because he's got he's got a variety to his offensive game that makes them hard to defend. Certainly wanna one Anything to add to the nets hawks game again. I slipped in. There is like the third time they've played a really really entertaining game. I'm seeing a lot of people saying like can we hope this is somehow like a playoff series. It will be a pretty fun. One eight two seven whatever maybe possibly maybe three six matchup. Sign me up for that if we're going to get games like this between these teams where there's not a lot of defense but my god and a lot of scoring. Yeah i totally agree with you escape. Unfortunately for us these two teams are done playing for the season unless they somehow meet in the playoffs. All three of them have been really fun. You remember the first game between these two. It was like one hundred forty one one hundred and forty or something like that. They decided to play a little more defense. The second time around third time around maybe a little bit in the fourth quarter here. I don't know it was a fun game to watch. Not just a little bit over by the crazy ending the lakers game but this one was consistently great throughout. I thought the hawks obviously aren't on the next level yet. But they're closer than you think. I think we saw a little bit of how the brooklyn nets defense can actually improve going forward. In this season there was play where john collins got isolated on harden in the post hardened takes competent. Katie comes down from the corner. Smacks the ball out. What the huge block and that to me is how the nets are really going to be a quality defensive team when it comes playoff time because yeah they can bring other guys they can bring in somebody to improve their jeff green spot because jeff green is obviously playing a ton of minutes on a title contending team again. How does it keep happening. The guy what a career for jeff green but nonetheless. You're going to have hardened you're gonna have durant you're gonna kyrie on the court. What the key to them. Having a good defense is getting a good effort from those guys you see hardened given up his body taking a bump from a bigger guy you see katie willing to help. That's how the nets become equality defensive team or at least eighteen. That's good enough on defense. That their offense can take them home on the other side. Absolutely episode to you by ten ten.

Washington DC chefs band together to create new ‘ghost’ restaurant due to pandemic
"On how restaurants are finding new ways to adapt to survive during this pandemic in DC is Global Park neighborhood. What used to be a popular restaurant and bar has been gutted. We turned our entire biggest dining room of the former restaurant and turn into a giant bakery. Aaron Gordon is the owner of Ghost Line. Which took this old restaurant space on Wisconsin Avenue and turned it into several many restaurants. There is outdoor seating, but most customers either order take out or delivery. The different chefs used to shared staff to help make it all go. I think anytime you compared to a food court, it comes with negative connotations, but that's kind of how it works.

Also, Buffalo, their minor, League facility they could also end up at their spring training home in Dunedin or they could just be on the road for the entire season, and when they're playing a home game on the road, they would-be batting last in those games, those are the possibilities, but hey.

"Don't blame him for not participate in again. Why Wa Balta? The fact of the matter is trying to win you taking time out of your schedule you sitting up there competing you believe you legitimately want. Both Times. Walk could argue. You've got robbed and you still want me to compete again. If I'm him being the most exciting all star game in years I think it was one of the most exciting dunk contest. Max I'll ask you this even though it was so riveting we didn't have any all stars in the contest. You think that's an issue that there needs to be more star power I do. Where's Macron and these guys look once upon a time? Dr J. The biggest names in basketball the fat the free throw line slam dunk. That was during the guy. Don't count the season the Aba the Aba brought that kind of showmanship eventually absorbed into the NBA. Michael Jordan put it on the line by the way same dunk. Tucano tested when he was up and coming as Dominique. Wilkins Dr J. what's up for one. Scared for what Lebron Dan. Don't think can dunk like Aaron Gordon. Because not only was Michael Jordan. The Best Player in the game. Dr J. and Dominique Wilkins Happy Fifty. Seven M J by the way the greatest player of all time by for any sport but he would put it on the line he can also do the most spectacular stuff and even if Lebron is older I get it. The young stars the stars not just the great dunkers but the all stars who are great dunkers should be in this competition first of all happy birthday to my brother. Mj number love you big boy. That's number one number two. Believe it or not because he so great and because he's missed anonymous for being in the championship picture. Lebron James and what he means to the game of basketball. I was very proud of him yesterday. In terms of just the effort that he put forth him and Yannis entered the KUPA. Greek freak the captains of the team the way they went added in the fourth quarter. I thought that they set the tone as well like I said earlier. What if there's one thing that we can indict Lebron James about when it comes to basketball is the fact that he is the only superstar that I can think of in the history of the NBA? No for the aerial assault that he brings to the game as well as everything else that has never participated in the slam dunk contest. Now what do you think it is? Maybe it isn't it isn't no it is it. I don't know why I don't know the reason I won't speculate as to why it is but I know that is the one thing and Lebron James Career that you can accuse him. It's the only thing that you could actually say. He has done a disservice to basketball. He's never given us that. Mj Dominique David Thompson. Back in the day Max. Julius erving Dr J. Kobe Bryant Vince Carter Tracy McGrady it is no. I slam dunk contest of the historic players in NBA history. Everybody Shawn Kemp's of the world and others every individual scar in NBA history. Who was known as having an aerial assault to his game has participated in the dunk contest. Lebron James He's never given anyone say an on top that all he would do his old version of a dunk contest on layup. Live prior to gauge. Remember years ago Max when it was a big deal with people used to try to get to the game early to see what Lebron would do in the layup. I T's everybody in the thinking. Your brother can enter the contest and then he wouldn't participate. That's the only thing that you could buy service with Lebron James when it comes to basketball. Let's next by the way I know. This is now like Barbara Shop. Talk because it's like well. Can you really serious? But there's I think there's a kernel of truth in what about to say why the question is why Steven A. Y. isn't broad. I think there's some truth in the idea that he doesn't like to compete. If the deck is stacked he likes to make sure he got the odds on his side before he puts himself out there which went his. Gm wasn't doing it. He form the Super Team in Miami. The whole thing like he knows branding. The way movie stars no branding. Do you really know that it's star. That gets you in the theater or get you to order on paper or is it that they make sure to work with the best director the best producer to make sure that they're in the vehicles so you associate success with them whenever you see them. You know that means the movie is going to be good. Lebron's very good at branding that way but put yourself out there when the deck isn't Stack Steven. The crazy thing is pat. We're dunks work. Kenny skywalker one. It wasn't so creative. Back in the day was just towered dunking and Lebron empower dunk. Put yourself out there too late when I would not have handled not seventeen years in the league. I would not ask. Lebron do that now but I will say you had. You had lisa guys fourteen years. You could have participated. It's a shame that he never did. Y- I'm saying you're right. Dr Jan argued even then just now. He's old I get it the younger stars. But since we're focusing on Lebron James Doctor. Jay was old when he was in that contest with Nick and Jordan and really couldn't compete with those guys. He's still put himself out there. No question Max really quick before we go to break you know how early we're talking about the sixers underperforming good home record. Write their fifth in the east. I just got the Senate sixers road record is the same as the Knicks Max. Nine and Nineteen. Say this can also leave you with that here in New York with this. Let me leave this. Angora wasn't the only one that felt robbed refuse to participate again Audrey dollar I think it was from two thousand six. Didn't want to compete after he had gotten robbed. Let's keep that in mind. There's a lot of people in the NBA NBA. There's gotta be a better voted exception.

Garrett in an exclusive interview for ot L. Alleging again that mason root of used a racial slur during that infamous incident when Myles Garrett swung rules him at Rudolph's unprotected head Mason Rudolph once again denied the allegations on twitter saying quote one thousand percent. False boldface La. I did not have not and would not a racial slur. This is a disgusting and reckless attempt to assassinate my character joining us now is Mason. Rudolph head coach for the Pittsburgh steelers. Thirteen seasons not a single losing season on his resume. I'm talking about one. Only Mike Tomlin coach. Welcome to the show. Thank you for being here this morning. Thank you for having me Steven A. Always a pleasure out question. Let's get right to it. What was your reaction to Myles Garrett to accusation against your quarterback the most recent one this past weekend I took offense to it to be quite honest with you when it first transpired during the season. We don't have a Lotta time to pause and fight battles of that nature. We said piece. We were completely cooperative with all parties. Involved the Cleveland Browns Organization in the National Football League office. And then we had to move on. We had another game awakeness and wanted to be singularly focused but when these allegations returned this past weekend. I thought it was appropriate that Mason is properly defended. It was a thorough investigation done by us and the National Football League. I don't think that was represented during that piece. These accusations are serious. Not only in terms of Mason Rudolph character but his professional pursuits. Nobody on feel as a member of the Cleveland. Browns or the Pittsburgh steelers corroborated what was said by Malas Garrett that was founded by US and the National Football League and at no point doing that piece this weekend. That was stated myself. Personally I was on the field immediately after that altercation is subsequently after the game I got a lot of personal relationships within that organization over there in Cleveland and no point did anyone within that organization come forward and say Mike heads up we gotta situation here or something of that nature that you would expect that goes with those type of allegations. So I fully support Mason. Rudolph we as an organization fully support Mason Rudolph and to be quite honest with you. We weren't hacked off with what we saw this weekend. Not specifically for myles Garrett. He's been in the lane that he's in but what was displayed by and that panel the way that the situation was presented. I don't think was fair to Mason Rudolph and that's why I'm here today. What you say. It wasn't fair to Mason Rudolph specifically. What are you alluding to that? You would classify as unfair. It was presented as A. He said he said situation. Even to this day it was presented as he said he said and I think the National Football League office was very clear. Today lost thorough investigation among all parties involved including the interviewing people and in the analysis of technology that was on that field and they found. No evidence of of miles is allegations. And I think that that should be stated. Now obviously you know your head coach for the Pittsburgh steelers. This is your quarterback so you know him obviously more intimately than JOE public out there or even somebody on an opposing team. I'm imagining you. Spoke to Mason Rudolph when you did speak to him. What exactly did he say to you? He said what he's consistently said throughout this entire ordeal he did not and would not say what was said that he said and he's been extremely consistent from day zero in that position. You've got numerous black players on the Pittsburgh steelers all of them. According obviously did they say you. They didn't hear any such thing that they say to you that they didn't believe a single word that myles. Garrett was saying as it pertained to this matter not only my players but like I said I got a lot of personal relationships inside that Cleveland browns organization both players and coaches and I didn't get that information from anyone when you're talking about the national football league and you say that they had a thorough investigation. How do you know that the investigation was thorough? What particular what particular. Could you point out to show or to showcase for the public out there that indeed there was a thorough investigation. The reason I'm asking that is because we heard something along the lines at the Mikes were turned off. Or what have you know the accuracy of vet statement regarding the mics? I know that I've been the national football league for a long time. I know when situations come up. I know the approach today. Take in terms of peel back the layers whether it's interviews or research. I wasn't directly involved in like I said. During the course of the season we have to continually move on. And that's what it is that we do. We received word from those guys and we took them at their word. Thorough investigation was done and no evidence was founded. How much culpability do you believe belongs on the shoulders of Mason Rudolph for the incident taking place last November fourteenth? To begin with I I struggle with that to be honest with you man. It's been a lot of negativity around Mason Rudolph. He got fined fifty thousand dollars for essentially getting beat up. His reputation has been tarnished because of the allegations. None of which was founded. He was a quarterback losing circumstances at the end of the football game obviously he was an active participant in the altercation. But a lot of the things that are gone or beyond that I struggle with highlights for the public out there because we see Mike Tomlin. We know what an exceptional football coach you are. You're very candidate when you're speaking to the media or pretty much to anybody that knows you. They would know that if indeed one of your players had said something along the lines of what Myles Garrett accused Mason Rudolph of how with Mike. Tomlin have handled that situation for those. That don't know you forget me. I represent the leadership of the Pittsburgh steeler organization and that also was implied during that interview this weekend somehow We suppress evidence were participants in some lack of thoroughness. And anybody that knows this organization knows what it stands for. Understand HOW TO ROONEY FAMILY GETS DOWN FROM. A business standpoint that's laughable. We would not participate in the covering up of such issues and we would obviously do what was appropriate in terms of dealing with those circumstances. What would you suggest happen from here? Obviously in a perfect world we'd forget it and we move on but that's not the world we're living in particularly with the advent of social media and beyond but specifically as it pertains to the national football league in their dealings with with the Pittsburgh steelers with the Cleveland browns with myles Garrett who had his indefinite suspension lifted. He served a final six games of the regular season. And that's it. He'll be back for next season. Is there anything at all that you think the? Nfl can do to sort of switch concerns regarding this particular.

"Undisputed handpicked with the best segments and discussions skip Shannon. Let's go Saturday night. The dunk contest ended in controversy after it went to a dunk off between Jerry Jones. Junior and Aaron Gordon Jones took the title after the Second Tiebreaker. But that was a shock to the crowd and even the judges after Jordan jumped over seven foot five Taco fall.

Gordon Rob Rob again. I don't know what it is about Chicago because I remember in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight another robbery till I was there. You probably would have to have something to do with that. But that's not here. No doubt no. It's here it's here. We're going to talk about that but go ahead. I'm not going to interrupt skip. Aaron Gordon Rob began and he said after the game I should have two of these trophies. Aaron Gordon have in the dunk contest. History Aaron Gordon has two of the top five ever the one that he jumped over the mascot against Zach Levine skipped his leg and don't skip. That was he should have won. And when he when he brought Marquel folks out and he threw it off the side of the board and he called it over. He took shoes. That should have been it. You said you should get four. He's like we came here to do four dumps. He did poor fifty at the end of this. What you do is like like a low competition skipped they. Don't keep jumping what you do. Is you go back to the previous jump in retire at the same distance on the previous job? We go back all the way because in the beginning I think Jerry Jones had a forty six or forty seven. Aaron Gordon deserved to win. This was given and at the end of the day the man dunk over the tall man in the NBA Taco Fall. He don't Dover got a forty seven. No what are they right. I don't blame him he's like I'm done see what's there with. You should've had see if he the one this one now. You bring. Zach Levine Beck and you'll get Zion and displaying next year. Can you imagine the anticipation of them? You mean we'd actually have a star in the dunk contest where we give buildings over to stop this. Stop This but you know Eric. Aaron going and I mean look. I started the call but I was in. La to report a robbery. There was a six point. Nine light skinned gotTA got beat up by five judges It is ridiculous. Giving you know it I actually thought the six foot four guy who's not so light skinned. He should have won it and yours. No no no. I'm talking about Derek. Jones no no no. No here's the point you can go back and look at my twitter timeline. Because I thought at the end of what should have ended the dunk contest than it went into overtime and overtime and then moreover time the last dunks they did dare Jones. Juniors last dunk was better than Aaron Gordon's dunk. And I'm getting tired of Aaron Gordon just going up and taking the ball off somebody's neck and dunking it. Maybe through the United Jerry Jones born between his legs and I think he is a better power dunker than Aaron Gordon. I thought he was getting up higher. Getting above the rim higher and he was coming down with more force and fury than Aaron. Gordon and I know this is all beauty in the eye of the beholder but again he also I thought got robbed previous dunk contest. And on this one I thought it should have been over after the last round but the judges keep giving everybody tens and they keep backing themselves deeper and deeper into corners and then they can't get out of the corner so when when both I'm sorry common who else was on in also candace Parker candace Parker and common called out the other judges saying somebody didn't go along with what we agreed on. Except that there were three somebody. Wha- here's three nine here that they. I think one of those nine was supposed to be in the teen so therefore we got forty eight forty eight. I think they had agreed. Okay maybe somebody was supposed to give it to God due process. I don't know the guy that play pool but he was Black Panther. I don't know I can't remember. I don't know but the point was that I thought he had won it earlier and I tweeted that. And then we get to the crescendo. Dunkin the night. Which is Aaron Gordon over Taco fall and it was cool that it was unplanned and they had not rehearsed it. He went just literally picked him out. He didn't WanNa do it. Chac was getting paid to do his all right right. So he shack didn't want to blow up his implem- on right so the point was on the TACO fall. Dunk Taco Fall Leans forward and let him go over his head. He eliminated about a foot of head. Dilemma established now. And we'll look at it and he leans forward to let him go over the top. Okay I'm not buying it because I don't even think that was a power jumped by him. It was kind of like an easy effortless jump to get over Taco follow Jerry Jones Dumping dunking over people. And I get it that Gordon wants don't chance to rap but it wasn't like now if dairy Charles with pool Jaanus out of there and dumped over him because remember his first doug over Bam. He pushed off with his hand. Dig It up you know. Hey all god-given ability you don't think Taco Fall is leaning forward giving him a failure even leaning Taco fall was scared and didn't want to get hit in the back of the head even even leaning on okay so we go to subtract. You know we're going to skip. That was a nine. We're going to subtract four inches. So now he. Instead of oversimplify guy jumps over seven one guy Come home. He didn't look that impressive to me. No To my test dare. Jones dunks looked a lot more volatile to me where he was just exploding. And Zach Levine between delayed windmill. We saw it already. Did it okay? Well the problem of today's dunk contest. I don't it's hard to come. Up WITH ANYTHING NEW SKIP. Dwight Howard look like a blast from the past like he's going Superman and it's like we saw that a long time ago with Markelle polls. Did you see how he got imposed pushed off the side and he skipped big by that he has to catch? Okay I like the scoop in the it's like a hook dunk. And then he went between his leg and reversed it with both hands but that was in overtime after. I thought Derek already won the contest. The wrong and it was just wrong to have dwayne Wade on the one of the judges. Because he's a Miami Heat through and through so it's hard to key can't be objective about this. So what are you doing which brings us back to Kennedy Smith at the end of the competition is screaming about how there's another robbery in Chicago? I was I was deeply offended. That Kenny Smith would have the audacity to put Michael. Jeffrey Jordan in the same conversation with Aaron Gordon Rob Aaron Gordon. Are you kidding? He put Dominique. He's dominating rob. Everybody knows that this happened in Chicago here. Michael Jordan. And if you don't mind me asking skill not only did he win the dunk contest. But what else did he winning a game in this well? It's because back in the day they would come into a game and say okay. It's your turn because this is your stadium this stadium this is where you're going to win the MVP. And I think it happened before the game last night. I think they all wondered Lebron to win it because it was the first Koby Memorial. Mvp WE'RE GONNA talk about that in just a moment with the point. Was that in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight. You did get a second try. You've got one more. You got a second try if you missed the first one right. So Michael Tries the free throw line liftoff dunk and he didn't quite get there and he's got one more it's like. Anthony Davis gets a second free throw. Accept this Michael took off from even beyond the free throw line and he just sticks it right there all the way home and just just risk slams in and it's iconic it's like all time all time the poster was over and that was the end of that Dunk. There is no dominate. Were doing the pay like you said Power Utah about power. Dominique head with the really hot paid. He was great. He was all time great but he wasn't greater than the greatest ever wasn't it was not a robbery. Aaron Gordon Gatt Rob you this. I covered the one in one thousand nine hundred eighty six which was in Dallas Texas and Spud Webb. Did robb dominic again. I'm a big. He's close friend of mine and I was all into it. And given the fact that spuds like five seven yes. The dunks pulling off with degree of difficulty. He should have beaten him. But but in the end was dominic better in the in the grand scheme of things. Yes we'd never see the guy to ask them okay. We know first of all when I heard what are you gonNA do. And then all of a sudden he bounces off the floor and he elevate you like own. Nobody's but dominique new scale because obviously there halts teammates so he seemed split in practice. You know he knows he can elevate and then he's catching bouncing between the leg and catching bag with that five seven. Yup to an slammed which brings me to one quick anecdote. I used to play basketball against Spud Webb at a little gym. Where mostly white guys played and one night we were playing in Spud went baseline on me and I let him get to. The baseline knee went up and under slammed two handed and it was the first. I believe anybody to ever dunked in that Jim and he turned to me and said you got cable. This is one thousand nine hundred four. I said yeah why he said you can go home and watch that biscuit. We'll skip. Aaron Gordon Got Rob. You get if I give straight aiding all glass loan. How MOBILE DECLARES HE GOT fifties allows the dunk. Nobody's ever got that meeting. We agreed everybody just kept giving tens and tens like that. You need objective judges which is an oxymoron. Because they're not going to be object right so it's gotten a little out of hand because we have no new dunks but unfortunately we have no new stars until Zion Zion. We'll do it. It will bring it back to life. Give at some point in time. I mean you know they used to be. There was never any problems in now. Seems to be the only way people are dunking props because every dunk. That's being done. Someone has already done it either. Dr J. Vince Carter Michael Jordan Dominique hard. And that's why I said the creativity that's needed to be a great dunker. Now guys can dunk on somebody in the game. But nobody's GonNa just let you just don't go them in in a in a skit dunk contests but for the creativity there. Aaron Gordon I mean that is coming up with Jerry Jones. He's going between the leg. Windmill donkey and Aaron. Gordon was picking the ball up people's Nets Duncan he took it off. Chance the rapper. Going one way. Oh I think I'm going to do this. They don't get back that. Oh if only we had better besides Aaron Gordon if only we had Lebron James. He do one talk about regularly. That's a later but let's move on to the MVP. Leonard led all players with thirty points last night on his way to winning the first ever Kobe Bryant All Star game. Mvp Award Qui- admitted winning the award wasn't his goal coming into the game but after hitting his first couple shots. He told himself he'd win the award. So skip yes. How big of a deal is this to buy that he won it? I think it was all time huge and I think a lot of people are missing the story because Choline isn't one to Gush over anything so he didn't fuel the post game story the way others would have fueled it but I thought it was amazingly an eerily fitting that won the first annual memorial Kobe Bryant all-star. Mvp Award. Because I can make a case that why was closer to Kobe than any current NBA player? It's a close call in. It's close but but I'm going to make the case so the point was that I didn't have a lot to say about it. But if we could hear what he did say he was trying to say a lot without going over. The top. With.

"Is that first of all if you're talking about beyond a b what we do is zero bearing on what their future projection for aaron gordon is terms of what he can be for the team top of that we absolutely no nothing about whether jonathan isaac is going to be yet so is ix says prospect should have no bearing on how they see gordon d agree with that yes i agree 'cause i i mean is it and besides those players don't have to start together in the front quarter when they play together they can be rotational type players i still have always thought isaac projects a little bit better offensively as wing type player i mean these guy that could shoot put the ball on the floor has incredible length but i don't see any reason but these are also guys you could switch to defend the pro talking about big slow players and but i agree that that isaac is a guy that is a big question mark for landed right now if isaac wasn't a big question mark farland and if he had more a solid rookie season and you know it was more certain what his future contributions gonna look like orlando problem we would not have walked in to bombo i mean so if landau thought that isaac and in isaac and gordon in bombo have too much redundancy there probably wouldn't have drafted bomba so you know bringing by gordon i think i think that answers the question right there whether orlando too much redundancy so long to see the redundancies issue all they're all in the rookie scale contract it's just if you think that in if you do the math enters a how many guys that start out your one year to potentially on a trajectory max player i don't think you want to play in having all three of these guys paid as max players in their years five six seven eight you know but there's plenty of time to sort that out if that happens like like the example oklahoma city active a little bit too soon in traded hardened because they projected russ katie and hardened to all be concentrated in similar roles didn't wanna pay all three of those guys mex contracts given there's only one basketball going around orlando has two if not three if not more years those sorts out right yeah exactly in i mean the bottom line too is when you look in this class i mean aaron gordon is at or near the top of the list and for a guy who has gotten better and better and better every year here this is the guy when he was a rookie really wasn't athlete who is still learning to play basketball at a very young age he's still in the twenty two twenty three he was one of the youngest in this fake class and he's a guy that went from something like five points game to nine points a game too like you know thirteen fourteen poison game and now being legitimate score score in the league so he he's probably one of the guys and he's he's he's in this class and in this class he's probably the guy that has trended upward each year more more markedly than any other players so his upside is probably still in front of him and is hard to say i mean i think i think people are on the league no he's legitimate nba player and a when i say top tier i'm not talking about an elite all star or all nba player when i'm talking about guys like a prophet as a prospect is hard it's hard to say whether he'll ever be like an all nba type player but i think i think what everyone would agree is that the way he has trended upward he still has room to move up and on and on in his ceiling is still not determined that he is not his ceiling a lot of other players in this rfa class their ceiling pretty well known and a lot of them are sort of playing their ceiling where we're in air aaron gordon's the guy that we still don't know what selling as and it's the classic example of when you draft a really young player he's still gonna be really young when it comes time to decide whether or not you're gonna pay him a lot of money or not and i think for me when it comes down to is he has the body he has the coordination he has the athletes zm so he's in the elite elite athletes give it his size.

"With orlando they saw this year aaron gordon and elfrid peyton in all these nonshooters became amazing shooters well that changes the way you got a guard him but the moment that shot goes away we never really believed in you for as long as soon as you miss a couple now defences are adjusting the way they were upon you giving you all that room no attack card closeouts northern oklahoma not so hard to not offense gets harder so now you not as good as a team and and that's they don't that's to be ex expected when you see people as melting when you see someone who is a non shooter come out the gates blazing give us some time to give in to give it some time and you know what i might get burnt in the shoulder happens marcus all over the summer developed a 3point shot like happens you get you know sometimes you get burnt sometimes you get vert because it's it's real zone quite leonard was a nonjudicial college yes for sure shot thirty seven five that whole euros like let's see live taking keep it out guess what he's kept it up more often than not the going right modern other won't i just want to talk about the grizzlies little bit because they were hot during this though the five in two thousand eight and three of the smallest it was it was still like october it was like halloween but still it was like the grizzlies ever how are they getting this done finished deal coach of the year now he's here at the la pc man i i never had confidence in that team being able to keep it up not because the coaching kushner's is awesome but because of personnel like their best players really old there are the best players hurt and the rest of their team or a bunch of nondescript brilliant chandler parsons.
