"Stay away for me because I need to go and be put myself out there because I need to make money and when that happens if you start doing that the NBA is going to follow suit. They're not going to be the one I and mighty and stay away. No No. We're not GONNA do it. No no life is going to go live is GonNa go on and people are going to go back and learn to live because once again right now is find the say. I'm not going to work but eventually people need to eat. Not all right but let me read this from Adam silver because I think if you read between the lines here it sounds like Adam silver is suggesting that this could go on for awhile. And that's that's why I have my opinion of this. This was a a him on. Tnt last night. It's a little bit of a long quote so bear with me but it is worth reading. He said Quote what we determined today is that this hiatus will be most likely at least thirty days and we don't know enough to be more specific than that but we wanted to give direction to our players and teams and fans that this is going to be a roughly at least a month but then the question becomes is there protocol frankly with or without fans in which we can resume play. I think the goal is what makes sense here without compromising anyone safety. Frankly it's too early to tell you went on to say when asked about whether or not the season potentially could not be finished. He said quote. Of course it's possible that it couldn't be finished we just don't know more at this point. That sounds like a guy to me. They cannot compromise the safety of the rest of society. They're not going to play games again. If there is a chance that they compromise the rest of the safety I you you took everything that you wanted out of that quote A. Made it into what you wanted to make the like. You disregarded the point that he said. Oh yeah the win that in Ohio. We've WANNA play like with. Of course they WANNA play this way to the airport where he said the red belt just to prove your point. It was like. Oh Yeah but you disregarded the whole first first couple of sentences that he wants to play. They're losing millions of dollars. They already lost millions of dollars earlier this year with the China. Daryl morey situation of course they want to play but it's not about want it's about the same. I I don't know if it's about the safety of a potentially spreading further. And until you know that you won't do that I can't imagine the NBA is going to be like well. There's a chance that we could spread this further if we start playing games again but we need to make more money. I I don't know I just feel like they are not this unless they know. Let me ask you this question now. We'RE NOT CHINA AND WE'RE NOT KOREA. Right but you know that they're the amount of people getting it and the amount of deaths are going down right now in China in China South Korea. Yes but you know why scall- you know why because there are like totalitarian government. They basically put people in quarantine and they separate them from their families and listen there. It's clearly working. We have not been able to do that. And by the way scalp. That happened early. That happened in January in starting in January. This it's now almost I mean by the time they want to get things back to normal. GonNa be April. That's what three months so this idea that we'll be back playing on a couple of weeks in the that's another. I feel like that's another reason why I just don't see it happening. The differences that because that happened already. We're using that as a template look at this is what's happening. We'RE FLATTENING THE CURB. Everyone self quarantine it that would cause this thing to die out now. Is he going to disappear? No but I think what you're ignoring is I? Don't think in thirty days from now when someone gets corona virus. That's twenty eight years old. I think that that person's going to be like I got corona virus. Everything is shutdown around me. I think that the person is going to be like all right. I gotta quarantine but hey that's too bad but you know too bad for him but I gotta continue to live my life and do what I have to do. That's where I think that's the difference. I don't think that people are gonNA be overreacting to this thirty days from now. I think people would wrap their mind around the pluses and minuses. What what life with Corona looks like? Listen I hope I hope you guys right. I hope there's a vaccine. I hope we figure this thing out. I'm not trying to be an alarmist. I just think I'm being real. I think I'm looking at the situation and going. I don't see how it's going to be a short term fix. I hope there's a vaccine. I hope able to figure this thing out. I hope we're able to get people to help that they need and that's outside of the NBA. Obviously I mean we just hope that we as a society and a country can go back to our normal lives as soon as possible. I just based on what has happened in China and what's happened in Italy and the rest of Europe. They're they're ahead or I guess they're they're ahead of us so we can basically predict our future based on their past. I don't know if that's possible but let's I want to do this because I I think we've got a lot of other stuff to get into here and I want to get into the bear aspect of this and some of the teammates being upset reportedly upset with him but scowl before that. Why don't you give us a quick read here from Ziprecruiter? I'm sorry from a five hour energy because I think the go bare stop to me is really interesting in that. You could read through Donovan Mitchell. Instagram post and I think you can tell there's a little bit of animosity there towards Gobert bare about the way. He was acting leading up to his positive task. Will do that all after this. But a quick read from our. You got tired of that thirty feeling. You're not alone. In fact research shows that more than seventy percent of US hit the wall after lunch lip five hour energy shot help you leap over that wall instead of crashing into it five hour energy helps you get through.

"Levin with Kendrick Perkins talking about his twitter beef with Kevin Durant last night than we bring in ric Bucher for a good hour. And now we get to bring in Scou- another one of our favorite guys and that is wizards rookie. Not Admiral Scofield's who joins us on the phone Admiral first off. What's going on man? Thanks for hopping on today. Thank you I appreciate it that much man just taking ready for the game this evening. Got The hawks come in town. Yeah and you know you had a career high. We want to start with this congrats on the body of the night was the loss of the magic. But you were keeping the wizards is it in the first half a career high eighteen point six boards to assist. Like that was kind of your. Your real breakout moment. Where did that? How did that feel that? Feel good to get out there and score a little bit and feel like yourself again. And and and Tell me tell us about your career. Hadid night oh yeah so good You know just going into that magic game you know. I hadn't really had a game where I felt like I. Ah translated what I what I've been doing Julie With the with the Gogo after having translate that would do is. There's as much you it just with. The you know the different roles on two different teams in the sense but no in the magic game you know we only had nine guys and we're so voucher over so I knew going in I was just going to be aggressive and I decided to play like I'm not a play the game and just take the defense gives me and try to be efficient is as efficient as possible. I will with my minutes and You know luckily guys around the house in the rice possibly a more aggressive and and just moving off. It's not just standing in space the floor but actually cutting and trying to get in there and getting back so I would just say it was just being more active in in morlock than to offense not just on decent admiral. was there something that happened early in this game. That allowed you to get more confidence or like to get your well. Yeah Yeah you know. I'm a player that works inside out. And you know anytime I can get easily win whether it's free throws or no quick. You know dunks by saying Danish Just just getting any type of finishes around around to start the game or start you know opening up my game you know it really helps me flow. Oh better you know getting that easy. Shot really makes the rim a lot bigger for me especially shooting the ball. So you know I know that about myself but you know after being positioning and make myself available to get those easily so and really look for Just being locked in on the office of you know coming into this league I just really have just trying. That'd be the best defender as possible. And you know to try to hang my hat on that end but offensively you know with the roster that we have and situation wearing with all the injuries now he's trying to be more aggressive office to help guys Scoring and especially when we have no back the bags or you know just coming awful you know there looks to win game to win streak. We were on trying to bring some energy and help guys and that situation relation. So how'd you gotta be more aggressive with the wizards and you're not trying to translate. Like I say translate what I'd do it to go. Go with the wizards. Yeah two big wins before that. Ah for that loss. Imagine you beat the nuggets and beat the Celtics so as you know you guys are you guys are one of the more exciting teams in any given nightly you could beat anybody which is really cool and one of the things. I've noticed to you the wizard. You guys seem to go kind of small and you've been playing some of the four. Do you like that. Do you feel like you're versatility is good for the four position. Because you can kind of like us that you can overpower a smaller guys. Maybe take makes them so some of the bigger guys off the dribble. Do you like playing the four and this kind of in that setup. Yeah I mean you know I just like on for you know being. Are you so as a as a player. Initially I really understand understand that the term undecided big Undecided every night. I play the Florida father The you know just competing trying to box those guys out and just learn how to be Just learning how to get different position on the bigger guys. You know just boxer mouth keeping away from the glass and that you know. That's fine is great money every night but you know hopefully as the season goes on as my career changes to I go here I hopefully. I'll get the transition until you know being on the wing a little bit more and know playing being aggressive attacking so but other than that. I'm I'm just glad to be on the floor in and be competing but you know. I'm I'm versatile player like you say I feel like I can play in position You know I'm a competitor McGuire competing and do what I do but at the same time I love playing the game so either way I can get out there. I looked competing. Whether it's McRae Peyton you brown like all you guy have spent time in the G. League like. Is it a little bit easier knowing that these guys are going through the same thing or they went through some of the things that you're going through going back and forth guys that it does that then you're saying lay everything they're learning what's going on in the the game make little things to watch out for those things to the point other teed always Especially when the game play I really watch everything off of thanks for watching point here talking to those guys the game. Both you know even if I'm out playing compensation is the second everything you Day by day and we'll get a little static from still got us there whereas you must better there. I WANNA I WANNA ask you. I saw you You tweet out your love for for your Guy Brad. Beal all-star case make make the case for while Your Guy Brad that'd be able to be an all star this year first of all personality. Why is a great guy you know I mean no one better to represent this league and then he does a lot in the community Gives back to DC area but also just how you represents. The Waste Wizards Organization is amazing But what a leader he is. Not I notice up here. We're having no run. This time usually making a playoff pushes being a team. That's in the playoff conversation. You know just the leadership his body language. Everything is positive. This year is great but I mean the guys had multiple forty point games. He's adjectives thirty points a game. I mean you got you gotta give guys guys you know that excitement away plays the game. He's an exciting player. And when you when you're selecting guys you weren't also gave you want excitement guys that can while you and make highlight place. So in my opinion I think Brad beal fifty five model Admiral All star. Like you're going to see what it's all about or are you gonNA take some time. Hi Mike what's what's the plan here. I got to hear the plan. Well I I really WANNA experience it but I think I think the biggest and the most important thing right now is my game same thing. I'm GONNA take that time to really improve and work on my game just makes half of the season while we'll leave you on this admiral as you said. You got the hawks tonight Tell US Walker what the game plan for defending a guy like trae young. How do you what do you do you know he can? I mean so as you pass. Is that Corey even at half court the ball so really just you know pressure them and trying to get them to play inside. The three point line is three. The three is more than two. You know those. Yeah those guys play play. Tha that scheme and they believe in that so we have not to make them play as much as possible. Not giving many open moves but try youngest youngest guy you know he's hardly contain. It's almost like China. Say How you stop Steph Curry which is tough do so I am in my in my opinion. You know whatever. Just get him to play within the three point line. You know having having stub having him making him spread the ball more get. The boss has much possible Other you guys around here score so in that sense it's just really pressuring him and trying to get the ball. Just Hands Admiral Guy. Tell you one thing now. When I was on the bus heading into the wizards game with the Celtics Grant Williams? He was singing your praveen. Gassing you said that Barnes pinned you guys against teach other early in your career but you guys got past that it became like like good competitors but you guys were all about winning so I got some good stories about you. I'll say EXA. Yeah Oh yeah. Yeah 'cause bars coming coming in you know I I didn't know much about grant Williamson but I helped recruit them to come to Tennessee. And I mean it's his first at the committed I mean. Every day was about waves freshman year he would just talk about grant Williams and then my sophomore year when grant got there you know he tried to be really dependence against each other. You know to bring that competition it works but I think personally you know just off the floor we we connected on a whole different level because of the competitors were on the floor so it was it was a great thing is the greatest rain is a is a funny guy. He's very. Yeah that that Tennessee vols fan. We may well. Admiral were pumped Thanks for hopping on Continued hope continued success. We're really happy for you would carve out some roles and having a career high the other night so Enjoy yourself continued success. And we'll talk to you in the next couple of weeks. Thank you appreciate it take it easier. We got awesome. We got some stuff coming here. Shack said he believed beeline when the coach claimed he meant to call his players slugs thugs but the hall of Famer said he shouldn't have been offended. The player should have been offended either. Way Kenny Smith and Barkley. Both Ed these players. If you're worried about being caught you ain't GonNa win. That's why like what was it Why am I blackout his name? Oh they're nasty. Senior came out and said like like. Oh you know like Biko's beeline owned up to it. So that went along way and you're just like really like I just I don't know I just feel like the apology is sort of weird to me. I'm with you. I guess I'm with those guys is because you didn't think I believe that he meant to say slugger. I I guess I said I can at least by the story. You don't buy the story. I buy the story shacks that he bought it too. But I don't know shack shack also went on to say like Hey I've been calling. I grew up in the eighties. I've been called way. Worse things coming up in then slugger doug so I I just feel like it's one of those things where again if if the cows whereas like John is wouldn't be a story whatsoever for sure and then I was like obsessed with this yesterday then I started. I started listening to music right and to pock used to say. He's about this thug life. What is that mean blocked with living in a mansion when he said that well? Yeah I mean the speaking. The Thug Mansion. He Rose Sonko thug mansion right. That was that was heaven right so I mean I love I love this part art the NBA..

"Radio DOT COM APP. I'm Steve Rudy and it is just pal today. Scowl is his flight. Got Delayed coming back from Dallas from the Celtics win over the last night so he will be missing the show today but I promise you we will be back tomorrow. We'll talk about Kendrick Perkins in them being on the call in Dallas last night but for today a it is just pals coming up in a couple of minutes. We're going to have map Velazquez who is a reporter for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. We got a ton of things to get to him to get with him about tonight. Which is maybe the game of the season between the walks in the Lakers on? TNT At eight o'clock tonight. I'm excited about that. And then a little bit later will bring on NBA champion Butler as well to break it down. Talk about a bunch of other stuff actually have some quarter season questions but I want to ask him as well about team that had been the biggest surprise disappointing so far would you like to change your preseason picks. 'cause I know everyone on the show made preseason picks actually looking at mine and I'm not I'm I feel. I feel pretty comfortable about mine. I had bucks Lakers in the finals. I didn't I don't know if I thought both teams would be world leaders like they are right now so I feel pretty good about data ahead. Anthony Davis as my MVP. He's probably not going to win the MVP but he is having a great season. It's just really broad is doing. That is the reason he probably doesn't win the MVP so we'll get into that a little bit later with NBA. Champion CARAMBA Butler. But before we bring Matt in here I WanNa talk a little bit about the game. Today I mean who. The one of the questions I was going through my mind about the Bucks Lakers was which which team needs this game more. which team would a win mean more towards and I think both teams are a little bit surprising I don't think anybody thought that they would be twenty four and four at this point point. I don't think that the top two teams that are you know in net rating this season the boxer I mean running away with the net reading just like they were last year. I mean they're great offensively and defensively so one the questions I I I kinda had which. which team needs this more? Would it be a little bit more of a boost to I think I think it actually is Milwaukee. I think because I think the walkie still has a point to prove a little bit. I think the Lakers the Lakers Lebron obviously been there done that. They're trying to acclimate the rest of that squad. Anthony Davis WHO's really only one one playoff series in his career. But I think this would go a long way in the bus confidence if they could take AAC down. Team like the Lakers to prove not to people who watch it because I think I think I believe that they are legit title contender but people that look at last year's raptors loss and say or do they have a second star if they go and beat the Lakers. And I think that's a huge into the rest of the league that they are real as an actual contender. So let's let's actually get to that right now map Alaska Mapoulo Velazquez who is a Box Reporter for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Matt Perfect Timing. Thanks for hopping on say we really appreciate you hopping on Scallon Pals. I want to ask you I was just talking. You know at this. I don't think I'm I think I'm surprised at these. These teams are really good. I'm surprised at the degree that how they are so great. Are you surprised that the bucks are almost almost as good if not better than they were last year despite what they lost and do you think that the team is a little bit surprised. Even this good I would say to answer the last part of that I I. I don't think the team is surprised. I expected to be able to run it back. Bank on their chemistry and play well Yet again. I'm uh-huh me I I would be Similarly good to where they were last year maybe they would Drop off record visors. They tried to like really manage manage the season. And that was kind of my perspective going into the year But I am surprised. They were able to rattle off. Eighteen straight wins and be twenty four and four at this point And and be as dominant as they have been. I mean seeing Janas close for as long as I have you know and I can't surprise. He's gotten better but to see. Hey how much better. He's guiding and how he's shifted his game a little bit the shoot more threes and To diversify but as a playmaker It's been really impressive. Yeah I think one of the things about Yoenis we always said if if he shoots if you can develop that three point shot like watch out. He's GonNa be unstoppable and he's gone. I think you know he started off really hot cooled off a little bit here but I think the fact that he's just taking these shots is a really great thing. It's like somebody like Ben Simmons. Who isn't doing that? So I'm not. Even that upset. If he if his percentage floats around thirty percents even if it's even if it's not as efficient it's still like it's still a great threat for a guy like the honest to have I. I'm not surprised that he had this other level to them. My I guess my biggest concern with the bucks was the loss of a guy. Like Malcolm Brogdon the loss of Mirror Tich and bringing in some guys that they had to acclimate guys are a little bit older coming up. Injuries like Al Korver and Wes Matthews. I WANNA get get to Malcolm Brogdon and in a little bit but The the criticism of this team. I think it's always been who is the second guy right. It's Middleton bledsoe it's probably Middleton but when you look at all the rest of the contenders they really have another star player as their number two. The bucks are really the only team that doesn't do you think that that's A. Do you think that that's going to be the biggest problem with them. Competing impeding with the Lakers and the clippers. You think that doesn't matter and they're just as good because of their death. Yeah I I don't think that that would be the thing that holds them. Back against the Lakers clippers. I think that having you know Rosser really fully guys they can plug and play Usually beneficial for them in the regular your season and it works for sustainable amount of the postseason Last year I mean they were they were up two games on the raptors and then the bottom fell out and they can shooting more And that was really a a huge problem for them You know they'd won that game three that went to double overtime You know maybe maybe they go to the finals else. Maybe they win the finals I think that it's a it's a strategy that they believe works that they believe can work now and in the playoffs and I it's just a function of You know on any given night. Who is the guy who steps up isn't middleton is it Bledsoe Is it down and even tens of visit wes Matthews Brook Lopez You know on Monday night. They didn't really have any of their starters. Step but it was Kyle Korver who stepped up and that wasn't enough against against the mavericks so they need to be able to figure out who they can get to To help be honest. 'cause no matter what you honestly GonNa be there. Yeah I I think I think that that you know the loss of the raptors in the playoffs last year in eastern commerce was a little a little bit overrated in that like I think people are carrying that over into this season saying well like that. That's a major flaw. Like how did that happen to Janas like they. The bottom completely fell out scowl sort of been in that camp a little bit and I want to ask you something. He said About that in a little bit. But I do think that's a little bit overrated when you go. Oh season to season. Because he's not there anymore. I think they're clearly the best team in the Eastern Conference. I'm certainly right now and I think the the the biggest competition would be the sixers if they ever put it together but looking at last last night. I'm not sure they ever will put it together. Who Do you think in? The East is is probably the biggest spoke to this box team reaching the finals. I I would still say the sixers Just because of the defense they're capable of they don't always play at their best But you can see how they they could be an elite level defense. And that's what Toronto had last year wasn't elite level defense. You have you know how lowery whose you know well known of Ellen regarded AH defensive player you have quite Leonard. Obviously you have Pascal Siachen who has lancs and athleticism. Marcus who's incredibly smart. They agree and who has offensive player. I mean you have to have some some serious defensive players to rival the bucks into slow them down and Philly has that At least at their best I also thought even before the season that Miami could be a team that would give the bucks fits just because of their their athleticism and and the way that they play and the number of big wings inspired defenders that they have so And you really can't forget about Boston either. I mean they have a lot of strong defenders. There guys can play multiple positions so The East is really good at the top. And you know I the bucks are as you east. Is Clearly the best team right now. Come playoff time. There's going to be a bunch of teams out there who can give them problems. Yeah before the season. And by the way we're talking to map Alaska's bucks reporter for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel joining us here on Scallon Pals Radio Dot com the radio DOT COM APP Yeah I I I think that the ISA's much deeper I think than we thought it was going into the season. Most People's Gal and myself included thought it was a two-horse race. I think I'm a little bit more open to that. But I do think that gap between the blocks and everybody else is honestly larger. Maybe that and I thought it was at the beginning of the season. So they'll have that going for them. I'll ask you about the game. What you expect to happen tonight? But I do want to ask you this because it's something that we've talked about a lot on the show. So a lot of people in the media have talked about this and sort of you know the narrative of the bucks in their in their roster. They obviously Malcolm Brogdon go in the off season. He Signs is a restricted free agent. Deal with the patients. And he's having a great season without Victor Oladipo. He has led them to kind of in that group of the next couple of teams in the Eastern Conference. He's he's looked really great. If you get the bucks management and a candidate moment what do you think they're saying about letting.

"I I tell you the speaker on every trip I. I'm doing these guys in a long time but I I definitely speaking with me. I don't want any problems. Carry the speaker on every trip I had to get wingstop for every Playing I And then anything. The guy needs from water bottles to turn their back foot anything. I mean it's really just long call with the best but you know they're pretty lenient. They're not they're not too particular net. It is but you know. John isn't that much air. Nearing Miami do offer free Fridays at all so it just depends on who the vet is but also whenever they ask you gotta get it. They're GONNA be ready. Well Admiral we know you got a game later tonight in Miami do some gets them relaxing. Get some Sun. Scouts said enjoy. You know sitting by the pool before the game tonight. We always love having you and best of luck. And we'll talk brought to you you know in the in the in the coming weeks Laka Laka Jimmy Butler down you got. You gotTA would've tasted. Lock them up. He tries to be physical you. We haven't none of that. No Sir. I'll be ready for. Thanks Admiral Talk to you. Thank you all right scale. Always GonNa talk to admiral and you know it's it's you know the guys just hungry. It's fun it's good to talk to him and you know it's interesting to see. Was it like that with you. Watching while you're playing in the league watching other guys and watching Lee pass and checking out. What everybody else is doing that is? That was how it was when you were when you were playing as well or did you stick to your own team and yourself. No no I watched. But I'm not a like the locker room was not a barbershop to me. It was. I'm I'm there to work. That's I'm not saying that everyone's not there to work but when I got there they're like I wanNA get my shots. I WANNA get my body work. I want to get into the Weight Room Amoroso. I'm going to jump in a hot tub to cold tub and all those things so I'm not just chopping it up up on the plane. We chopped it up a lot in the locker room. Like I don't I don't know man. I was there to work. I always felt like what was I going to do. Sit around talking when there's so much at the facility that you can do so I was not big and chopping it up and we have four rookies so when it came to like getting stuff for guys donuts donuts or wings that he said whatever it is we kind of like all handled. It wasn't just on one guy. We had a lot of rookies in you know like we had Richard Jefferson Jason Collins me in a guy named Brandon Armstrong he went to pepperdine and so we kind of just distributed the rookie responsibility which wasn't so bad. Nice yeah I guess. If it's wibble one person has to do with all that might suck but you divvy it up. It's not too bad I've seen we we. We showed the pitcher. And I've seen the pictures on social media. You Know Admiral carrying the wingstop bags up onto the plane like he's listened. He's doing his thing and he's it's awesome to see because he's all over the place as you mentioned he's he's down with the G. League. You know doing the Gogo thing. And then he's getting called up and it's seems like for most of the season it's going to be busy for him because he'll be back and forth so Always good to talk to him and we'll catch up with him throughout the entire season here on the show here on Scallon Palace but and there's a there we go okay. He's got a big smile on his face so he he gets it like I. You know he seems like a guy that absolutely gets it in his I wouldn't be surprised if this guy is like like you mentioned you know. He's one of the. He's kind of has the perfect body type. Diop guy like Jimmy Butler. He's the perfect body type and skill set to really have a long career in the NBA. I I have no doubts about it so as I said always good to talk to him. Let's take a quick break. Your scalise folks. We're going to bring in former sons jam resin. GM here on Gallon House Ryan. mcdonagh WANNA ask him about the Russell Westbrook trademark it plus also. Why hasn't it's been there? There hasn't been a trade and I think over two hundred days in the NBA. I WANNA ask Ryan why that's the case like the longest You know stretch since two thousand. I'm sorry longest stretch since nineteen eighty six that we haven't had a trade trade in the league is just because you know teams. I think that they can still compete. Is there not a whole lot of people you know. It's at December Fifteenth Day. You can't create any. There were so many mini free agents so many agents and then like people kinda like their roster giving young guys chances that the NBA has shifted a lot. Where Rookie Rookie scale guides are important? Second round picks all. That stuff is important to have the Max guy on your team so like don't be trade when December fifteenth rolls around. Right around that time time it'll pick up why won't ask and what we can expect because we are you know we're only what a week away from that date so We'll bring him in next. Plus I mean we gotta talk about the next. We haven't even gotten to the next yet. I mean just a disaster acid. That is so all of that coming up. Brian Calvert E._M._C..

"Actually down for the winters need me as well so whenever never go down in the wizards I usually be with both But because we haven't had the injuries that we have now and you know the guys that are vicious right now now You know we go to get the rats because we were with the way that we might be plan that much you know with the men just and we've already played almost four hundred minutes four plus minutes and the winds we probably would have only played. Maybe thirty up at this point so just to get that experience. I think it's been good I know I five sided with the Gogo The right now known anybody they need extra help and I understand that you've got to be ready whenever my number's called. But no whenever I get Tony I'm GONNA be ready. Do you guys talk in the in the locker room. I mean we the media and fans make a ton about James Harden and sort sort of the streak. He's down in the scoring numbers. Seon East breeze. Pretty polarized you guys in the locker room. Talk about the stuff that James Harden's doing or other guys around the league and kind of what's what's the what's the perception that you have Abba payment and and some of the other guys in the locker room. Yeah I mean you know as NBA basketball players. We have in the past and I think is really uses. You Watch a lot of games No just to see you know other guys in the League. You're doing because you know we're in the league. It's like a brother. That's one of the things I did. Save is is really cool. You know after the game at the competition is over. This is see how you know how much different you guys are. Just then you know more friendly in because Oh you know this is the major competitors Russell Westbrook. I saw lyle and students like superintendents in the game. Like a really nice guy. So this is T- that aspect it's pretty cool but a lot of guys have friends on different on different teams so they support him guys. They play with But you know James Harden everyone knows he scored a ball can't can't touch them came file no good at selling it also join thousand times. I don't think yeah. And then he went on his name whatsoever so ever since he does very tough. And you.

"Think I think they'll see it through. I think they'll absolutely go to the playoffs with Russell Westbrook but it doesn't go well. I could see him sort of being like all right. Let's pull the plug on this. So you can get. Because that's the that's that's what we've seen more in the past. He's not afraid to shake up this roster when he realizes there's a problem so I'm not advocating. It happens tomorrow but I. I don't think it's insane to think it could happen the next year. So are you would you. Would you trade him for a guy that has a lower ceiling. That's of course. Well all the things that you're saying are true. The Sun's GonNa come up every day. We all know that. But are you trading for a guy that maybe better fit by getting habits high ceiling doing. And what's your goal here to go to win a championship like you need Russell Westbrook to play his best to win a championship. If you replace him with somebody else and he's good good and he maximizes potential but he doesn't have that extra level. Are you a championship caliber team. So I'll put that on you. Well this is what I want to ask Ryan mcdonagh mcdonagh about former sunshine when we have about fifteen or so minutes is what is i. What is the mark? What were the market be like for Russ I still think there are teams? That would take in the problem is he's making so much money. So you gotTa make there. Aren't that many teams that can make that money work and make it enticing enticing to the to the rock it so I was looking. I was flipping through the trade machine. Last Asmat like Minnesota needs a point guard right but I'm not sure what does does Covington Jarrett. Culver like you guys like those are actually valuable wing defender Dies no he makes. You'd have to throw in six million right if I'm not mistaken. He yet yeah. It makes over report. He'd have to throw in Gorky. Dang fifteen million you after throw in Jeff teague sixty you'd have to throw in a ton of players and I'm not sure the rockets would do that. Maybe the maybe the to do that. Miami's another team. That people say all right right you know they. I don't think they will go for Chris. Paul would they go for Russell Westbrook and that situation but again them. The money doesn't necessarily work out. And who on Miami is going to be is is Houston Houston Really GonNa want like are there. They're GONNA get Bam. They're they're probably not going to give up. Justice wins like who are they going to give up so I don't know what the market is like for him. That's why I want to ask Ryan mcdonagh coming up in a couple of minutes. That's but the question I want to ask. You is what what does this rockets do you need to. They need you just like did they. Basically just need more. PJ talkers guys. That are great defenders. And we're GONNA stand at the knockdown down big shots. They need Westbrook to be elite. If if they're talking about winning a championship they need Westbrook to be elite. That's that's IT CJ mccollum. I don't think so. I'm trying to think of guys that you would have that conversation with that trade trade conversation and I. I think it's going to be hard to upgrade their roster. People aren't GonNa want to take on Westbrook such a dominant personality. It's it's fine. His personality works James Harden. Maybe like the game hasn't been a great fit but his personality works. I don't I think you have to look at your own team and say hey how can we get the most out of this guy. Because what if Westbrook and shoe forty eight percent from the field like what if he becomes a guy that gets downhill right the media also this explain if no one is. There's all kinds of thousand the NBA. All kinds of hand checking and all that stuff. If I'm WESTBROOK ASPRO why am I not getting downhill. I'm GonNa Shoot Twenty seven times. Why am I not getting that restricted area? Twelve thirteen fourteen times a game. You guys can't stop op. You your athletic like when you pull up and shoot a pull up if you make it. I'm sure like the coach on the team players. Like keep shooting that like like the worst thing you would want him to do is get downhill so I personally think. He's stubborn and he wants to shoot mid range jump shot for whatever reason. Maybe he doesn't want to get hurt that's why he didn't go to the basket. But if he ever decides like when I get the ball from Jane's Downhill and get to the rim. I'm going to be a monster the rockies. We'll be taught to stop now defensively. We have another conversation but authencity is what we're talking about today. They need the best version of Ham if they're ever going to be championship. Caliber Lieber also just making a neutral move with no next level to go to so By pitcher there have Admiral Scofield. He's GonNa jump just texted him now is GONNA join us. Justin calling in just a minute here. So we'll put a pin in this for a second He's GonNa join us and then at the bottom of the hour we're GonNa Have Ryan mcdonagh on to continue this conversation about the next talk about a bunch of other stuff. But you had mentioned like Russell Westbrook could just see what did you say. Forty five percent from the field. He hasn't shot up forty five. Well I don't think he's ever done that. He hasn't even shot up. He hasn't shot above forty five percent from the field. Since two thousand fifteen I mean. He's never shot close to forty eight percent from the field and his entire but he's never he'd never play with like I mean I know Kevin Durant dynamic but like the idea of being a second best player that there is a bit of a difference when all this kind of report on one guy. And now you're attacking getting downhill. He also shoots a lot of pull up. Jumper is that I would not advocate for so I think he needs a guy that needs to look to get to the rim or remember five years ago. They weren't calling thousands or calling now all should should be eight eight nine three throws a game so we have to understand that the game is changing for. He is playing into the hands of every defense pulling up. I let's put it in this for for a second. And we'll get back to it in about fifteen or so minutes but we are pumped to be joined by one of our regulars and that is Washington Wizards Rookie and a guy. That's been all over the place this week. That's Admiral Scofield. Who joins us now on Scallon Pals Admiral Busy Week for you my man thanks for hopping on and spend some time with us? What's going on very busy week? I woke up in Miami this morning so great great more now sitting here looking at the water the building so pretty cool good outside and hang out by the pool. It's one of the best. That's your after four. We won't say if you're at the pool. I think you are one of the best pools in on the trip. So make sure you get get some time in the sun. Okay I de we've admiral you. You had on Tuesday one of your in a a rare club. I guess guys that have played in a G. League game basically in the early afternoon and then got called up and played for the wizards that night against the magic. You end up playing seven minutes in that game Tuesday night. What was that like because I mean I imagine? You haven't played two games in one day since like what maybe like. AAU Or something. What's it like to basically you know? Play a game in the afternoon then get called up to the woods and play a game. That night was it. Was it a complete whirlwind. What was your daily? Well I mean like you say it probably makes it a few days you know usually For for me me adjusting Robinson. We get called up when the wizards are in town and we used to do that similar routine but we normally don't get in the game so You know thirty eight minutes ago and then literally having to get into the game. It's stress and literally didn't trying to grab some food guard right to the next arena. You know it was a it was so much excitement for me because I got an opportunity to get on the court and show we can do but also you know make an impact with Gogo and just getting as many reps is very helpful helpful helpful for me personally. I think that I was wrong. So much just from being down to go And as far as part of this evening and You know learning a lot about the game and seeing where I fit in with the team you know where I can help out those really humble me. But it's also know brought a lot of communist There's been a lot of confidence in me of throughout this whole process just like the other day. It was amazing I honestly I could've played like twenty five. Did I was ready to go. I was ready to go. So what have you learned like how in college you definitely impacted winning. We saw at night in and night out. But what have you learned from this levels like. There's one thing to participate anticipate the next thing is now. You're acting winning now. The biggest thing I learned was that you know playing hard is is. I wouldn't say it's a rarity clarity because you know people play hard and in different ways but the way I play in the way Hopley heart you know that could stand me. Apart from a lot of people do being consistent in that alone you know it was an eye opener just doing the little things Doing a little work early because what a lot of the brake brake froze doing this league. Um You watch guys you also plays like planning efforts by it just because he does his work early no he doesn't waste energy. Oh man no. It's just a little things. Is that going to scoring the little things that go into winning. You know guys that buy into their role. You know watching Bible last night for the sisters and I was just amazed at young guy that has just completely bought it to his role and he I mean he just he looks so great in it because it fits him you know his his style of play. You know just is those things guys who really buys her role somebody to the row house. Assess what those guys. How how How many more opportunities the guys that get that vying to the road?.

"Just and we thought the Knicks it hit hit rock-bottom. It somehow gets worse like I don't understand game after game. We keep thinking it can't get any worse than it somehow does another disaster last night for them so holidays Auburn expands. But they're just it's entertaining as hell to kind of watch this dumpster. Fire go down every single night. We'll play some south coast. David Dale who just you know. He's saying the right things but imagine he's going to be the scapegoat and I can't imagine they're going to let them go on this much longer if the results keep being thirty five point blowout losses losses at home. So we'll get to that in a little bit. James James Harden only shot six free throws last night in Iraq. It's win whoa already. I know they were passing the ball. It was unbelievable. But there's another major problem on that team that I need to get to that. We haven't actually talked a ton about this year. And that's Russell Westbrook and get to that in a little bit. Admiral Scofield's GonNa join US wizards rookie. He had a busy Z.. Tuesday night playing in in the game in the afternoon and then he got called up to the Landau. Magic game against his Washington is replayed other seven minutes so he did some double duty dipping this week in the G. League and the you know the NBA will ask him about that and a bunch of other stuff coming up in about fifteen or so minutes Ryan mcdonagh resin former Sun. GM's GONNA join us. I gotta ask. Ask them about Russell Westbrook because I think let's start here scowl because you know we we can talk about hard and we talked about hard on it nauseam and last night the rap the raptors conversely doubled him and James Harden to sort of do his thing and he he he was a willing facilitator other guys. Are knocking down shot. They were great from three pretty much. Everybody on the team was shooting eating except for one Russell Westbrook who has an O.. For six from three another abysmal abysmal shooting night. And I keep thinking scall- tell me if this is is crazy but I keep thinking. I was pretty optimistic about how this thing was going to go. I thought they'd be a really good regular season team. I thought they were just blitz team with athleticism and their speed. But it's just not working right now. Scouts not working in Russell. Westbrook is kind of their. He's really the one guy. That's not shooting Daryl. Morey is a really progressive guy. I I don't think they do it now. But if you get Darryl Maureen a candid moment do you think he's thinking about shopping westbrook or seeing what the markets liked because it hasn't this has been kind of a disaster so far. I don't know if it's a disaster that's helped me with this Arruda. You're saying it's disaster because he doesn't make shots but what about the rockets. It's the rockets. Aren't a disaster. They are not here. The Knicks are disaster. The rockets are not a disaster. It's in spite of Westbrook. Though scalise in spite of like if he's he's taking thirty other stuff does what about like okay. I'm not trying to defend Westbrook here because I don't WanNa be that guy because I'm not I'm not really am just the irony here like you're looking at one area of the game and you're putting in a box you can't do that Cerruti you have look at what he's doing defensively rebounding the ball. We knew he is going to be. He's not he's not he's not good defensively he just he just he. He hasn't hasn't I mean he's super athletic. But I mean that whole raucous team in general is a disaster seven harden. That's not impressive impressive. You told me heart is not impressive. It doesn't affect winning now. WESTBROOK is not impressive. He's not a nominee who becky winning on this team not winning. They're not fourteen in seven because Russell Westbrook. I'll tell you that right now. I mean I I think again. I think they're sort of doing this. In spite of him and I I like Westbrook broke. I think I've always sort of banner Westbrook apologists again. I was optimistic about how the thing was gonna be this year especially in the regular season. I still have my questions about in the playoffs. But the way it's going scalp we gotTA We gotta what. What was he last night? I think he was Yay twenty seven coming off a seven thirty. I mean he's oper six from three after a one for six from three the night before. Yeah I know the rebounding numbers of their. I know that the assist numbers are there but the way I look at last night. The Raptors were daring. They're playing a box. One essentially against James Harden and daring Westbrook to shoot the three anytime west shoots. The ball still winning Toronto and beat Toronto. There's a whole I don't understand Cerruti if they got their doors blown off. The last two games seems fine but come on man I mean like why are we going to like today. WE'RE GONNA go out and I get it. He's Mrs. Schott. I understand. He's not taking good one. It doesn't seem like it fits all that stuff but it is about winning games right. It's not your fantasy a numbers right set because you drag the him you've got his fantasy rating was going to be a lot higher. It's it's about winning and losing and they're winning games so in spite of you you're right. They shot him and they can look away to get better. But you like we're not going to. We can't sit here and just destroy. Oy The guy when they go into Toronto and be Toronto in Toronto very difficult place to play. It is and I want to get this a little bit later because I saw this this morning. Actually Kinda surprise me. Toronto is not good. And we talk about the Lakers record before this sort of road trip here Their record against us about five hundred actually Toronto's only three and six against teams five hundred. The better they're mopping they're cleaning up against team against bad teams which is what what. What good teams do I get that? So I'm not trying to discredit this rockets. Win But Toronto hasn't actually been beating good teams Maybe In the way that we thought and again not taking away from the wind last night with rocket is a good win intrigues them. You Win in Toronto. It's a great win but I just looked barrymore. He's a he's progressive guy. He's not he's not afraid to tinker with things. He's not afraid to shake things up and I only look at this westbrook thing. I don't think it's going to get better scale. I don't see he's been a bad shooter for like three years now he he has especially from three and he's not gonna hit open shots. That's what that's what the rockets sort of need him to do right so I think if you get more in a moment I'm not saying that he's actively looking right now but I'm just wondering once they get to the playoffs. I think these these problems for the rockets which kind of is westbrook brooks long ways away. It's only gonNA get exacerbated. Don't you agree with that. We don't know how this season's going to unfold. We don't know what it's going to be like with Westbrook over the course most of the season if he thinks that he's still GonNa take twenty seven shots we don't know if eventually he's going to find his rhythm and had to be like the second best player to play alongside James Harden those things take time like he had a hard time playing alongside Kevin Durant so it was really tough for him and he made a lot of bonehead plays while he was doing that. So it's GonNa take some time now now once again. I'm not sitting here saying like it's really. It's working out so well no I understand that. He's missing shots. But what if they're winning games right now. It's not the dumpster fire that I thought it was GONNA be. And you're saying in spite of I mean plus minus is last night. He was a plus seven he he he was seven for twenty seven plus seven. What do what do we figure this thing out? What if he does? Then you gotta think of how a good day could be. It's the whole Philadelphia which we should get into Philadelphia's well but the Ben Simmons thing like a lot of people won't move Simmons because what if he figures is it out. What if Westbrook big long as long as they're winning games along the way you're fine at this point you got to make adjustments you gotTa Tell Westbrook shot? I want you to take. But you're winning right now if he figures it out. They're going to be a tough out. Scalp tell me what. Obviously it's not shooting. What is what should westbrook be doing like? How can he help this team because going seven for thirty is not helping this team? Yeah I'M NOT A so. I'm not a proponent of other guys like this why. I'm not a Lebron cheerleader. But I'm a fan of Lebron's because Lebron sprinkles in his jump shot what makes the the broncos his ability to get downhill and really makes them. Mike exceptional is his ability to find guys Westbrook to me falls in love. With amid rains he falls in love. The jumper is the easy way out. I think these guys can always take it and they work on their game in the summertime and they work on their jump shot but what really makes westbrook great is his ability to get to the rim attack the basket and get to the free throw line and I feel like I feel like it's a little bit of a stubbornness well. I spend the time in the off season working on my game. I'm still GONNA do this. where I I believe that you should attack downhill as much as you possibly can? Unless you're jumper is so wet. Set Your staff if you're Kevin Durant if you're those type of players even Kemba Walker. I'm a big proponent of those guys. They're jumpers automatic with West. I think he settles. You should be able to attack to and find an open player. If James Harden get double teamed and you get the ball you attack downhill on hill now sneakers to their. Now you're getting the ball and you're attacking if you're talking one on one. You should be able to finish. Have you draw to more like that. Should be a wide open play. It's the it's it's hard and making the play before the play and it's West recapitalizing on that so like if I'm coach I'm trying to drive that point home now. We might not be able to. If I'm coach of the rockets and I'm telling Westbrook this I want you to play. He might be so stubborn. He can't do that he doesn't want to do that. But my personal opinion opinion he has the ability to do that. And what makes them. Great is his ability to get downhill make decisions. So that's the goal that's where I'm striving towards but along long away if I could be fourteen to seven during this time and he hasn't figured it out. I gotta be optimistic about what I can do. Yeah and like obviously hindsight's twenty twenty and Chris. Paul has been all right this year. He's pretty good. I think he he was. He was clearly a better fit than I think Russ is obvious. I might look back and say that was a bad trade because I think Russell Westbrook value is going to be higher in the long run and that's why I sort of an and that's why I'm asking is hoax. I'M NOT A. I'm not advocating that. Like more trades in right now but the what the way I look at it is if it does continue trending in this direction. At what point do you still sort of. Try to sell high so you can still get 'cause you know if he if he goes an entire year of shooting shooting you know below Asian twenty one percent from three and for you know he's got he's averaging four and a half turnovers again. I mean it's kind of over the place and part of that is finding his rhythm with this team and it's obviously it's something that he hasn't been asked to do in the last couple years when he's been Oklahoma City so I get the adjustment period but if I'm looking at Maury Maury as this guy that always wants to make sure he gets the most side of his assets..

Give up something that gets may still be you know smelling slowing down transition really building a wall and limiting and changing directions coming out so just keeping to try to give them on my side of the foot. You know. I've I've grown to really appreciate Brad beal every night. You guys are out of games then well at times but it seems like he brings his game game every single night. No nights offer him. What's it been like just being around a guy like that? He's a great guy he's like. He's calling my locker buddy because we're always mess you coats. But he is. He's definitely the definition of a best in everyday. This is working. Very hard stays late He's a guy that knows Sandra every day. And you know what you're GonNa get home but he's so talented I don't think realize how he really is. Just the way moves is Azazel to stop them. A dime it's gig balanced but you know watching them play beat up alive for him to get calls and the player is kind of weird you know and You know especially when Joel was getting a lot of sleep through sleep through man. He's sending to getting these calls and Franken beat up onto the rent so you know just just to see his connection to him to tailor to fight through in China as bad this year to find the good in every every little thing. I'm GONNA suffer him because there's you know he's been in the playoffs. Most career China can people are trying to compete for a championship with John and no new learning a new type of leadership role for him. But I think he's really. You're a couple of months into your pro-career here and I wanna I wanna know like what are you what you expected. What do you like like the most about being a pro and other things that you miss about college yeah I think the the biggest thing about the NFL is you know everything on you. You know you don't have kids visor. Kate at the plate in my voting literally. I'm living in my players. You know literally literally home my you know I can be me as good as I wanna be I can i. Can you know do things I WANNA do. Is My career in in college. You know you kind of have the follow motto. You have to follow a standard but now all you have to set your own standard and your own you know core beliefs what you WANNA stand on character wise but also have the best player. I mean the biggest decimated travel Five time to really take care of your body time to rest time to digest everything and play video games or just go to the museum Or just do something other than you know sitting on the couch. You know lousy around but you also get rest but I think the the biggest adjustment for me is just the travel Learn how to sleep right Boston.

Oh you you had on Tuesday one of I think you're a rare club. I guess guys that have played in a G. League game basically in the early afternoon and then got called up and played for the wizards that night against the magic. You end up playing seven minutes in that game Tuesday night. What was that like? Because I mean I imagined you haven't played two games in one day a since like what maybe like. AAU Or something. What's it like to basically play a game in the afternoon? Then get called up to the wizards and play a game. That night was it wasn't a complete whirlwind. What was your daylight were? Well I mean like you say probably a day You know usually For for me a Justin Roberts. We get called up when the wizards are in town and we usually do that similar routine but we normally don't get in the game so You know playing thirty eight minutes with a go go and then literally having to get in the TUB right after the gang gets stretched and literally trying to grab some food and life to the next arena knows. It was so much excitement for me because not opportunities wanting to get on the court and so can do but also you know make an impact with a go. Oh go and just getting as many. Can you know it's very helpful. Helpful helpful to me personally. I I've gone so much Just being down with ago And as far as part of the season and You know learning a lot about the game and singing where it in with the team. You know where I can help out at Mos really humble anybody's also know a lot of confidence There's a lot of competent enemies of throughout this whole process. But you know the other day it was amazing. I think I honestly I could've played like twenty five more minutes. I was ready to go. I was so excited I was ready to go. Yeah so what. Have you learned like how in college you definitely impact winning. We saw at night in a night out. But what have you learned from this levels like. There's one thing to participate in the next thing is now. You're affecting winning now. The biggest thing I learned was that you know playing hard is is. I went based rarity because people play hard and in in different ways but the way I play in the way awfully hard you know naked standing apart from a lot of people in just being consistent in that long you know as an eye opener. Just he's doing the little things Doing a little doing your work early because what a lot of the brake brake froze doing league. Now when you watch guys you also I. I play like playing efforts by. It's just does work early. You know he doesn't waste energy. Oh man no good just a little things that go into scoring the little things that they're going to win you guys. That's buying for their role. You know watching a Bible last night for the citizens and I was amazed at a young guy that has just completely completely bought it to his role and he I mean he just he lives so great any because this fits him you know his his style of play. You know those things guys who really by the role. Oh got somebody to the row house. Assess what guys how how How many more opportunities the guys that get that vying to the road?.

"Can you have something to do with that but things are going sideways. And he's not the easiest guy to deal with. Yes Gordon Hayward and their injuries and them doing hymns minutes when he's not playing well. Yes Jason Tatum. All that Jaylen Brown is taken out of starting on all that stuff matters but ultimately did not make an emphasis to get to the restricted area. Last year it caused him to lose and like people can't write that over and over and over again but there's no story they have to write a bunch of other stuff and that's it was terrible terrible person last year the attack restricted area. That would have been much better team. That's what Hayward's good at right Hayward's good is he is his. You know you don't WanNa do like the white guy thing. He's actually a really good athlete and he's big and strong and does his thing and and and I think they're playing a little bit to his strengths a little bit more the jailbird exactly exactly. Let's do this really quick. Let's take a quick break. I want to ask Admiral a bunch of stuff about the wizard. We've we've mentioned John Wall plus we're GONNA have Caramba or a little bit later. We'll ask him. Why guys love mellow so much in the league? It's not like I'm trying to be a hater. I'm just really fascinated by players. Seem to love the fact that he is getting a second chance and love watching she can play because he has been kind of a maligned. Criticized guy in the media in media circles especially efficiency so stick around. Admiral Scoffield in Kerala Butler all coming up next Brian Scowl bringing up seats roots. It's GALS ON RADIO DOT com the radio DOT COM APP. I welcome back the SCALP. How's your radio DOT com the radio DOT DOT COM APP Steve Sruti alongside Brian scallop rainy? And we do. We officially have our Guy Wizards Rookie Admiral. Scofield got the headphone issues. Figured out he's hanging out with us for the next ten fifteen minutes admiral. What's up dude? How we doing? I'm doing great great admiral. I want to ask you this I I for you know we'd I followed sort of your G. League stuff like you had to pretty gray games to start your career. What's it likes now? We're talking about this a little bit before when we were. We're trying to figure out the audio stuff. What's it like now? 'cause you go from Tennessee where you're playing a ton of minutes. You're one of the main guys and I was saying one of the hardest things about going to the NBA. Must be you know you have to make the most a very limited minute stuff that you're not used to and then you go back to the G. League where you're getting all these like. What's that transition been like for you? I would ah true of. I'd say it was easy. It's been tough but I think the biggest a has been more helpful than anything Than they would actually shoot the ball In touch the ball and bring the ball of the floor and you know sometimes you get lost in the game and doing a little at the end. You know you lose flow. You'll slow in offense and things things like that but it's no problem I think the biggest thing is that you know the G. League allow me to see the game slower so allowing me to understand you know where my spots are offense G. League runs the same thing Offensively that we do with the with the show. I think the biggest thing is out there playing with confidence Picking my uh spots learning the offense inside and out from different position. So I know where to be. You know just to be helpful so that we're not get time with the wizards that can come in right away and contribute the goddess in the way offense or you know getting driving lanes Brad and and those guys so just learning just learning the game at a different level of different spe- League but I think the biggest thing too is just developing that unger again that hunger to go out and just repairs off when I go on the floor so it's been fun My lasy league game I had like three thousand in the first quarter and I was on pace for a great game and I just I was so frustrated also frustrated because you know every time I play with them. I just WANNA approve point. You know not not one but myself that you know I am who I think I am so I i made me great honestly. There's been talk because you know the witches have. I've been doing the best but at the same time you know I just have to know no pay my dues and prepared to contribute My name is do you notice a difference like the four you go you play a couple of games. You get back to Richardson practice or like three. After whatever it is you guys a big difference. I would just say the differences. The efficiency of guys is a movement. They do you know. Gaza is very efficient. They don't waste raise energy in the almost seems effortless for a lot of those guys of China. You know followed that trend in learning how to slow the game down not ways energy not waste movement. Who may be a smart basketball player on both ends in North type player? I WanNa be I WANNA be a two way player. You know I think in this day and age not three in the guy is a is a great role for me but I wanted to develop into a two way player. Like the CO is in the Paul Paul George I WANNA be great like those guys but do it in my own way But like I say I'm a winner and I just want to contribute in help the wizards win but also go. You Know Winter Games as well you know there. There was a video that was circulating of John Wall dunking and the pre-game the other night in the cat. Everybody excited everybody's like when is she coming back. When we're GonNa see this backward again what can you tell us about about sort of his rehab? What his mindset is how he looks like what he's playing in what's He? How has he been lying around you to interact with? What do you like is a guy you know coming in? And you don't know what to expect. What the stars and I can honestly say John Wall and Bradley beal had been very helpful to me and John even more so because you know he just gives you a different personality? John is going to be John He's he's about energy he's like a kid. Honestly it's hilarious Larry's but you know he. He comes everyday push his in his rehab is very intense and he he takes very seriously but or court. He's definitely getting working working as you can see. He's dumping a game but no he's taking his time Making sure he's fully healed in one hundred percent again his body and his mind riding he understands You know just what's at stake this season in right now. He's just focused his health No He's in the middle of his career in against take his body so I think the biggest for analysis know what's best for John. His body in the woods are on board for him so baby steps right now but you know his greatest jump in you know taking shots knocking down threes jamming band. John Wall during the facing moves in the spins and different things on finish your source is Great Sam. Every today I mean he's a great guy also he's been a great guy on the bench just encouraging Brad encouraging the young guys it really being big time leader in locker room rope. Put your hat on for me. Just watched more of the other day. Boston Wha- what is very much Amora is he. Quite Leonard Account be help me understand. You look so athletic so strong and other times you just like all right. You can't really shoot. Shoot Fifteen I will help me out from behind that more he to me so you know watching him play he definitely has that is I think I think when you compare players these days. It's more of how they play. Not so what what they do. If you know what I mean like I would say you know the way Rui moves way he is like we play. It almost looks like he's playing at his own speed because he doesn't waste energy like I was saying not to have that at a coming into the league is big time because guys like why Paul George they had that pace they had that different Speed them allows them to create themselves and create space. And no he has that tooling rule is actually very very athletic. So our teammates get on him a lot about not gonNA ball. You know. It's just I think it's a field thing for him and he'll get it but he can do both on me. He's a very I mean he. He's he's a very smart player you know he doesn't wait energy He sees two points points for a Dunkin alab equal to him so oh he's just he just basketball player man. He Solid Eastern. She's very strong strong. Earnings looks definition. I'M GONNA looks in he competes. He competes every day just like like A. He's a quiet assassin. Honestly but you know you respect his work that they game. No Way doesn't floor and I think you know where his talent he he could he could grow and be who he wants to be. But I definitely see Colli asking them because of the way he moves away plays. But I'm not if I personally like to compare players to other players because distinct you know your your own man your own play your person in Harvey you do certain things should be catered to how you do it in in Oslo. I just don't like putting people in other people's cars the wizards are you know you guys are like this young team and got obviously a deal and walls kind of on the bench is Thomas Thomas. But you know you're it's become a more of a fun team to watch and I think a lot of people thought maybe especially like the League through that are now seeing what you know which teams the best to watch. The wishes is actually been really really entertaining team this year. So it'll be interesting. Kinda see how you guys develop. Because you've got a good combination of veteran players and young guys like yourself and Rui. I want to ask you about this too. We opened in the show with Carmelo. Anthony being back in the league he signs a contract with the Blazers and non-guaranteed deal. They need a ton of help kind of in that front court situation. Tell us what you think about about mellow being back in the league like how and how much like Melo is a guy that you looked up kind of coming up. Because I'm just I was talking about early so many guys seem to love somebody baseball smuggle guys in the NBA or guys like yourself. That are younger really looked up to mellow and love him as a basketball player. So give us your thoughts and mellow being back leading getting another shot. Honestly I'll I'M OUTTA my mid post game at the mellow ever since I was. I mean maybe middle school me mellows me mellows l.. Everyone loves mellow because a high replayed game in he no justice flavor in the study brought to the game to see him get a deal with great He deserves the being. I think and I think a lot of guys in his league believe that as well and not him get another opportunity is always a great thing And he's a legend to the game. He changed the game in many ways. Yup avenues for different different players. That are like him Play the game the way he plays so just to see him back in. The League is great man. You know guys like Jamal Crawford knows those guys. I think that they can still play. I think they deserve opportunities will dislike you know Thomas Guy is opportunity. Not What he's doing our team it's saving. It's great for us but also is great for him. No confidence for him and I think he's building day by day in the see what he does and you know to see him as a veteran. He's trying to help. I believe I think that you know guys like that are great for this league. Specially with a lot of young guys coming in so this is new. But I've been a part of the of the eight now for about. Eighteen years. Rookies never came to animate the type of impact. We're seeing right now. You ever reason for that. What what is how are these guys guys coming in and making an impact right off the jump and I'm not just talking top picks up in second round guideline drafted guy? These guys come in and they get a different teams win it is. I think if you really look at the train you know. It's a lot of guys that are staying more than one year staying more than two years. That are coming in and really make an impact but also guys that are only been definitely. I mean if you look at jaw I mean I think he career when he came out on our sophomore came out but just getting net second year of college experience. I think really helps because towards the second year of your colleagues you start to break down all the bad habits you came in college with and you start to bill the young man. You'RE GONNA be a young young player. You're going to be going forward in junior years. Use the year debt. You see the sprout or you see the the growth in the player I say in college and then for me my experience my senior year it was kind of fine tuning that part and then you know now being pro you get to go to a different level but I think in the actual year have experienced a less as you get out the little things like the non basketball stuff and Scott. I think you know what I mean by the nine basketball stuff. You'll get your feelings about playing time getting in your feelings. It's about not being able to shoot that shot or give me your feelings about Noah role. You're playing college..

"Dominates. His mark on guarding Lebron Doc. kind of his thing so he goes joins abroad or if he goes to the clippers. Yeah they've got three could potentially have three quote Unquote Lebron stoppers but That's why I've always said. I believe that they need that. Follow the Lakers needed igwe dollar more than the clippers do and we'll do plenty more on this gal coming up we got Caramba the NBA champion. I want to ask him about mellow. When asked him about Paul George Return? He has a big Lakers guy. I WANNA ask him about whether or not they are a better defensive duo than Lebron ad. But we're pumped the talked to Admiral Admiral because you know he as we talked about last time he has been playing in the G. League a little bit To get some more minutes and stuff like that isn't stat lines in the G. League since he's been there have been great and it must be it. It must be so refreshing scouted like go down there and start playing big minutes again to sort of work on your game because I imagine like if you're a guy like admiral came from Tennessee. He was a guy that was a a big key player for that team playing ton of minutes coming in the NBA. The biggest adjustment is like making the most out of a limited minutes that you may get earlier in your career multiple dollars all of the G. League or effect beneath them sixty percent of NBA players. Playing Jesus so you're looking at four hundred. Seventy six percent of those guys have spent time in the G. League. I need to play I. I don't I don't think there's no substitute for experience. Especially if you hold yourself accountable at a high level I. I don't think there's any substitute for getting better. If you're playing minutes when I played in the league there was no delete G. League nothing like that so I find scrap for you know like top minutes I I I I would love to good usually too. You know down the road. Just sharpen up my game. Yeah so you know He. Ah that wizard team kind of like lodge and they've actually got some decent players in that wing role and we're just working on his audio. Have Admiral back in one second but I want to ask him a bunch of about got a bunch of stuff we did see John Wall dunking in the pre game the other day and we talked about it briefly yesterday and you know. We're nine months so nine months from you know. I think it was last February when he when he tourists Achilles. And he's a big walker for that wizards team like when can you come back. It probably doesn't look like it'll be this year but they signed Bradley beal that extension if John Wall could to come back and and be something like John Wall that we saw in the past the guy. Who is you know lightning-quick up and down the floor super athletic I imagine it'll take some time for him to get back into the swing things but that Wizard team could actually go from being a lottery team to kind of an interesting team overnight. If you know a big at the return of a normal John Wall back you have to tell what has to be stricter her when he comes back. He has to look at the players that they put around him and be more of a patent instead of allergy trying to average twenty three twenty five needs to be you think of average sixteen seventeen trying to lead the league insist that he had to get credit for how good of a passer he is. Because you didn't get big numbers at the this hovering around nine when we got her butt with Brad Vio in the rest of the players around him I don't see off can't be big time distributor honesty when he comes back and it'll save his bodies were while we're while we're waiting for Admiral. We'll we'll figure out his bike. Situational have him on a second. Let's talk about this last night too. How did how did the mavs? Let's get swept by the Knicks. How how does that happen? The nick like if the Knicks. I saw people joking about it last night. At the Knicks. Play the mavs. Eighty two games a year. They'd be a playoff team. I mean it's insane. They beat them in Dallas. They beat them in New York. Last night the Buber's route for porzingus. which I guess is kind of fair? I don't know who I don't blame Porzingas for when you get out of the disaster that it is the New York Knicks Knicks Fan. I get why be a little bit sensitive about it but how does a mavs team. I mean that's incredible maps team. That's going to be. You know we think is probably going to be a playoff off team. I think they're going to be a playoff team. But those are almost guaranteed winds especially in the western conference. How competitive those are wins that you're probably going to need later in the year and they get swept by maybe the worst team in the League I think because it was about Porzingis and I don't think games right now can ever be about here. He needs to get help. He needs to get his game back before war Twenty eight against the Knicks down there but right now he's not can't be your guide right now not with the injury injury neck on the back not the way that he's playing second half so when you make it more about him than the team. That's remanded Matica Star. And by the way the best roster outside Luca I know Porzingis the name that I know we porzingas will get better but just watching basketball. We do nothing about porzingus this. You're just watching them. Luca on an island right now yup mortgage any other superstar in the NBA is really really on an island more within Janas. Yeah he's got more. I mean 'cause they're guys. I like on that magazine. I like seth curry like I liked. I actually liked White Powell. We'll contracts insane but hardaway Jr.. There's a terrible player dhillon right. There's some guys I like on that team. But they need a clear. I mean you think we've talked about this. Using porzingas is more of a three but they need him him at least to be a a a a a good playoff team they need porzingas to step up and be a two of porzingus steps up and is consistent night in night out as a guy who can give you twenty and ten like He. I used to do with the Knicks. Then I think that goes a long way into this team finding a lot more consistency. Because right now you're right. It basically is the Luca Danni shit show. He has to do everything on the gordy setting everybody else up. And I saw a lot of people kinda criticizing Rick Carla Carlisle last night the The mavs coach for posting up Porzingas. That's not really his game he's he. He is one of the most devastating seven foot plus shooters that we have in the League and his post up game is just not area so as as much as you want to say. He's a big guy he should be dominant guys in the paint. We saw. I think you saw right with Marcus. Smart like Marcus. Smart was able to sort of get him out of his element. Marcus smart what like six six three six. Four porzingas is just not comfortable in the post host and so until he sort of develops that part of his game. I don't know if they'll ever be sort of the dominant player that we kind of expect him to be. And that's what the mavs need. 'cause dodgers is basically you're right a man on an the island right now so unless in Carlisle believes that for them to get to where they want to go for. It has to eventually be posted threats. So you take your lumps right now. You put him in the post you let him play through his mistakes and knowing that one day we each you to be good if no differently. What Brad Grassy did last year with Gordon Hayward Gordon Hayward take terrible shots last year? The brass Stevens was like. We're going to let you sort of figure out your way to get that. I don't think it worked. Paddington worked all season. But from Gordon Hayward now is much better than what we saw last year but it was one of those things where hey the guy's going to have to take his love because the venture for us to be good movie Carlisle's thinking the same thing for us to be good. We need porzingas via post threat. Being just a pick and pop guy. Live is not enough but if you're if you're trying to be a playoff team and I it's terrible. He can't back down anybody right now but maybe that's just the mindset is like for long term success just got off the rest of the post. It's interesting you brought the Gordon Hayward thing last year because I know a lot a lot of people were criticizing it all got blamed on Kyrie like and you've been adamant saying it wasn't all about Kyrie even even Kyri was part of the problem. It wasn't just a Kyri. The problem and I know there are a lot of people that were pushing this narrative Stephen a Smith being one of them up questioning whether or not Gordon Hayward the way that they were using him putting him in the starting lineup Brad. Stevens sort sort of giving him all of this playmaking responsibility. Maybe before he was ready that led to some of the other players like Jason Tatum. The JAYLEN Brown being upset about their role saying hey we did this. So it wasn't just Kyrie was also the Gordon Hayward thing but and I I think you're probably right. That wasn't the right way at least for them to win. Games last year and be the best naked. Be But do you think that that helped hayward they were this year and obviously before the injury but that seemed to probably have given him some more competence of like. Okay I I I. I did this last year. I tried to kind of get myself back. I you know a I took some shots. I took my lumps but now going into this full two years after the original injury. I'm ready to go because of what razzed evens did last year with Gordon Hayward is that fair to say now let me let me tell you were on this. So it's a tie Ria Gordon. Is it the things that you mentioned a. I can't say that does have. Ah something to do with it. But you don't be like I'm not a big coup by on core chemistry on court fit right and also you know that I think getting to the restricted area is how you win games. I don't I don't think you win. Gained by Pope Shooting joke shots. And I'm not like a a big time analytic guy. I don't and I don't buy threes. That happened when you drive to the restricted area caused defensive collapsing. Elapsing take it out so I don't problem with those shots. But last year Gordon Hayward came in and he shot mid racial shot because that's what he practiced it's no one practices Getting downhill with. They're coming back from the nature. What are they practice? They go forty percent that percents so brassey this is knew that he and Gordon Hayward cackling hundred he can be kept you to shop so now Jason Tatum sees that in. What does he do already already? Leans leads toward being a very sharp shooter. Tina Brown sees that and the other one people never mentioned his Terry Rozier Terry Rozier sees at so you have all these Is Shooting mid-range shots and off the dribble off a pick and roll off of no passes. That's not gonNA work. It's just not so because of all the things that happened last year. They make a huge so conscious effort to get to the pay this year. So now they're driving the ball. Aw hitting the pain making place at the Rim within that play the layup a dump off or kick out and in that guy is driving the ball making plays at the rim. I I thought because the year before they shot twenty two percent uncontested layups in the half court in the restricted area. This was two seasons ago. Hello the following year. They probably thought we can't shoot those type of shots so everything led towards everything led towards bid restructuring. So in this year it's all about tacking the rim everybody attack the rim everybody downhill and the result is good offense so I think this. Can you have something to do with that but things are going sideways. And he's not the easiest guy to deal with. Yes Gordon Hayward and their injuries and them doing hymns minutes when he's not playing well. Yes.

"Know it's it's a lot of guys that are staying more than one year staying more than two years that are coming in really he make an impact but also guys that are only. If you look at Joh- I mean I think he was. Genuine came out. Our Sophomore came out but just does getting that second year of college experience. I think really helps because towards the second year of your colleagues you start to break down all the bad bad habits you came into college with and you start to bill the young man. You'RE GONNA be the unclear you're going to be going forward. And in junior years use the year that you see the sprout or you see the The growth in the player I say in college and then for me you know my experience. My senior was kind of fine tuning that part. And then you I know now being in a pro you get to go to a different level but you know I think getting the actual year of experience. LSU Get out the little things like the non basketball stuff and Scott. I think thank you know what I mean by the nine basketball stuff. Get your feelings about playing time getting in your feelings about not being able to shoot shot or give me your feelings about Noah Nowa role. You're playing you know. College allows you to build a resiliency to those teams because coach is going to put you through that. Unless you're you know the James Wiseman Jabari Parker's those guys you know what I mean like the top guys so I think the biggest thing is no experience as you get through college. Coach knows the tough experiences that you get Polish fighting your way in rotations being able to be held accountable at a different level because you know accountability accountability is even more in college when those college coaches have so much more power When it comes to how you play in how you perform so I I would just say it's the experience in college but you know even more so now kids? These days are playing basketball at a higher rate. You know I mean across the country you yeah no I mean. That's probably an indoor gym being bill every other week and cities you know because basketball is becoming America's sport no it's not we're shifting away from football in really away from baseball and basketball. Just really become an escort and how popular is kids are training ages. Nine in a you know is just that the game is just advancing. And I say this all the time when you see trae young when you see you know Steph Curry Steph. Curry was one of those guys that a change the game in a sense of now kids are going to start working on shooting forty footers and when they get good at them. They're going to put guys that can do that out of business. You know what I mean in the Games is going to be totally different. And then you're going to have to cater to the game so now more especially my my class and my generation we. We played a lot of basketball growing. And I think a lot of guys play you know played up a you played against men when they were younger. So you know. It's no fear as far as coming in and just doing what you do and you know in this league. No it's the best thing in the world you have all the talent athleticism you you know.

Wizards send rookie Admiral Schofield down to the G League

"Seeps alongside Brian Scallop Greeny? And we do we officially. We have our guy wizards rookie admiral. Scofield we got the headphone issues. Figured out he's hanging out with us for the next ten fifteen minutes. What's up dude? How we doing? I'm doing you guys doing. We're doing great which great admiral I want to ask you this I you know I followed sort of your G. League stuff like you. You had to pretty great games to start your career. What's it like now? We're talking about this a little bit before when we were trying to figure out the audio stuff. What's it like now? 'cause you go from Tennessee where you're playing a ton the minute you're one of the main guys and I was saying one of the hardest things about going to the NBA. Must be you know you have to make the most a very limited minute stuff that you're not used to and then you go back to the G. League where you're getting all these myths like. What's that transition been like for you? I mean I would. I would say it was easy. It's been tough but I think the biggest thing it's been more helpful than anything Than they would actually shoot the ball in touch the ball and bring the ball of the floor and you know sometimes can get lost in the game and during the little engine you lose flow. You'll slow an offense and things like that but snow problem I think the biggest thing is that you know go to Julie's allow me to see the game slower so allow me to understand. You know where my spots are in our offense because you know the G. League wins the same thing Offensively that we do with the wisdom so I think the biggest thing is just going out there playing with confidence picking my spots learning offense inside and out from different positions. So I know where would it be helpful. So that when I get my time with the wizards that can come in right away. Contribute but be a goddess in the way on offense or you know. Oh Gimme driving lanes or Brad and those guys so just learning just learning the game at a different level of different speed but I think the biggest thing is just you know developing that unger again a hunger to go out and just repairs going floor. So it's been fun My lasy league game. I had like three hundred dollars in the first quarter. I was on pace for a great game and I just I. I was so frustrated also frustrated because you know every time I play with them. I just want to prove a point. You know not not anyone but myself that you know I am who I think I am so I as many great honestly is made solid because the wizards have been doing the best but at the same time you know I just have to knows no pay my dues in. Stay prepared to contribute when My name is golf. Do you notice a difference like the four you go. You play a couple of games. You get back to the wizards in practice. We all three after whatever. It is a big difference. I would say the differences. The efficiency to see guys is every movement they do you know. Gaza is very efficient. They don't waste energy in almost seems effortless for a lot of those guys of just China followed that trend in learn how to slow the game down not ways energy not waste movement but be a smart basketball player on both ends type player. I WanNa be I I WANNA be a two way player. You know I think in this day and age noted Three D. guy is a is a great role for me but I want to develop into two way player like the Co is in the paw. Aw Georgia's I WANNA be great like those guys but you do it in my own way But like I say I'm a winner and I just want to contribute in help the wizards win but also Gogo. Winter Games will You know there was a video that was circulating of John Wall dunking in the pre game the other night and he got everybody excited. Everybody's like when is y'all come back. When are we gonna see this backward again? What can you tell us about sort of his rehab? What minds it is how? He looks like what he's playing in. What's he how has he been like around you to interact with what you like is a guy you know You know coming in. You know you don't know what to expect. What the stars Um? Tom And I can honestly say John. Wall Brad Bill has been very helpful to me and John even more so because you know he just gives you a different personality. John's going to be John Doc He's he's about energy he's like a kid honestly is hilarious but he comes in every day pushes burke in his his rehab is is very entertaining he takes very seriously but our court. He's definitely getting working as you can see. He's dunking game. But no he's taking his time Make sure they fully healed in one hundred percent again his body in his mind riding. He understands you know what's at stake this season in right now. He's just focused on his health No these in the middle of his career and you know you got to take care of his body so I think the biggest right now. I know what's best for John. His body in the wages are on board for him. Hanso baby steps right now but you know his greatest Sam jumping you know making shots knocking down threes in a jam band. John Wall the during the fancy moves in the spans. Different things on finish. Your source is Great Sam. Every day I mean he's a great guy and also you know he's been a great guy on the bench just encouraging urging brad encouraging the young guys it really being a big time leader in our locker room. Put your hat on for me. I just watched row. Gotcha more of the other day Boston. Encargado look what is very Maura. Is he quite Leonard Account. Be Help me understand. Because he looked so athletic so strong and other times. You just like all right and you can't really shoot shoot fifteen third so help me out more he to me you know watching him play he definitely has that is I think I think when you compare players you know these days. It's more of how they play not so of what they do. If you know what I mean so like I would say you know the way ruined removes the way he how efficient he is like when we play it almost looks like he's playing at his own speed because he doesn't wait in as you like I was saying not to have that. Ah Coming into the League is big time. Because guys like Kuwa- Paul George. They had that pace. They had the different speeds home now. Allows them to create themselves and create spacing facing now. He has that tooling rule is actually very very athletic. Our teammates get him a lot about not knocking the ball. You know it's just I think it's a I think for him it he'll get it But he can do ball on me. He's a very he's he's a very smart player you know he doesn't weights Zanji He sees two points two points a Dunkin Alab was equaling him. So he's just he just a basketball player may solid He's so she's very strong stronger than he looks. Definitely looks in he competes. He competes every day just like A. He's a quiet assassin. Honestly but you know you you respect his work ethic in in no way does on the floor and I think you know. We're his talent. He I mean he can he can grow. Who wants to be but I definitely see coli Colli asking them because of the way moves away he plays but no? I'm not a person likes to compare players to other players because I just think you know your your own manual in your own player your Harbor you do. A certain thing should be catered to how you do it in in God. I just don't like putting people in other people's got yours. The wizards are are. You know you guys are like this young team and you got a deal and walls kind of on the bench Isaiah Thomas but you know you're it's become a more of a fun team to watch and I I think a lot of people thought maybe especially the League ask through that are now seeing you know which teams the best wishes vaccine been a really really entertaining team this year. It'll be interesting to kind of see how you guys develop. Because you've got to. I got a good good combination of veteran players and young guys like yourself and Rui. I want to ask you about this too. We opened the show with Carmelo Anthony being back in the league. He signs a a contract with the Blazers and non-guaranteed deal. They need a ton of health kind of in that front court situation. Tell us what you think about about mellow being back in the league like how and how much like Melo is a Guy Outta you looked up to kind of coming up because I'm just talking about this early so many guys seemed to love somebody basketball guys guys in the NBA guys like yourself. That are younger. Really looked up to mellow and and love him as a basketball player. Keith Mellow being back. Leading getting another shot honestly Mid Post game after mellow ever since I was I mean maybe middle-school on me mellow is our main mellows. Everyone loves mellow because of high. Play the game and you know just flavor in the Saudi brought to the game to see him get a deal is just great Deserves the being this league. I think and I think a lot of guys in his league believed that his wailing to see him get another opportunity is always a great great thing And he's a legend to the game. He changed the game in many ways. avenues for different players. That are like him And play the game the way he plays so just to see him. Back in League is Great. Man You know guys like Jamal Crawford. medals guys are adjudged. Think that you know they can still play and I think they deserve opportunities will. Oh dislike. Tom guys opportunity. Not See what he's doing on our team saving is great for us but also is great for him knows confidence for him and not think he's building building day by day and to see what he does and not see him as a veteran. You know trying to help lead. I think that as like that are a great fit. Is League specially with a lot of young gods coming in so this is new you but I've been I've been a part of the. Va Now for about eighteen. Years and rookies never came. animate the type of impact that we're seeing right now that you've ever reason for that what what is. How are these guys coming in and make an impact right off the jump? I mean and I'm not just talking top pits. We're talking second round draft guy these guys to come in and they get a different tapping teams win the reason for that. Is I think if you really look did the tree and you know it's it's a lot of guys that are staying more than one year staying more than two years that are coming in really he make an impact but also guys that are only.

"I think he's probably the ultimate the ultimate competitors did not the ultimate competitor of all time you know and and clearly and we'll get to the story a little bit later but there are guys like Leonard now and other guys who want to go to Kobe to learn how how to be mentally tough and to have sort of the skill set that he had because it was so unique not necessarily on the corporate just his mindset and his physical toughness that set him apart from pretty much everyone else that may be he played in the entire league but from a pure on the core basketball skill thing. I understand why why you would rank steph curry over over Kobe Bryant Kobe Bryant fourteenth on this list behind Bingo behind David Robinson and behind the team which I think I would probably move Kobe up a little bit higher than that and those guys but I don't have any problem with steph curry being higher than Kobe Bryant on this list. Where did you mentioned Bill Russell. I'm kind of confused here. Yeah where's where resources eight okay who oh okay all right so yeah when you think about okay so it's all about how you perceive it like for instance. Steph Curry's two seasons where he changed the game basketball. We're better than any seasons. Kobe had if you factor in deficiency points per possession effective yoga percentage if you start getting into the real numbers not the emotional side of it of Kobe's a big time competitor competitor and not the emotional side of like this guy's the closest thing to Jordan which does not gain but mentality all the things that you mentioned that stop does come into play but steph curry is more efficient. The only argument I have Kobe won five championships three of them. He was not the best player on his team but for two of them he was so steph curry to me has what one championship when he was the best player on his team name and the other ones they had Kevin Durant so how would steph curry ahead of the guy who he was in better than was it because we're giving him credit taking a back seat to a guy like Kevin Durant is like does that factor in so I'm. I'm a little confused on like I said if you just just look at Steph Curry's two seasons that he is on that list and you look when Kevin Durant got hurt last year when he was able to do yet did not win a championship chip the season they want seventy three games. You give him credit for that yet. We're was not able to win a championship so you know Kobe got over the Hump. Those two times where I wonder how they factor that in as well but I I actually read from a basketball standpoint you looking on the floor you know. Steph steph courteous in different ways just as competitive as in a hard worker in all these things that we all the legendary things we've heard about Kobe Bryant as a worker Steph curry. It was like that too. We just don't hear a lot about it but I'm telling you right now. All the players have ever played. We're talking peers. Scar Ned Ray Allen rehoused ridiculous worker Jason Kidd Derrick Eric Roth Steph curry with floor all those guys and how hard he worked guy was a machine out there so I once I do understand that the other sense is why is he not the best player on this team. When durant was there well I think so they have durant just behind Kobe at fifteen which I do think is interesting because you know a lot of people including yourself. You just brought up believe that Kevin Durant was the best player on the team. I mean those guys including Klay staff dream on like deferred to Kevin as the best player on the team when he got her hair but there was sort of like a two year maybe period it was it was it was the year they won the title and then the year they won seventy three games and lost like those kinds that full two year thing we were talking about. Steph curry even above Lebron as the best player in the game where we not so yeah I think so he did sort of have his his his his time in the in the limelight as the best player in the league and then it's like Kevin got there and for some reason he took a step back. I'm not sure you know obviously you know they were comfortable with that and they won a bunch of title so I'm sure they're happy about it but that was always like a weird dynamic to me because it was it was just assume that Kevin's coming in he's the best player but step is coming up winning two MVP's and a championship and is widely early considered. Maybe the best player in the League at the time so I guess I'm very confused. I think I would put durant higher on this list to fifteen. I think durant probably a top ten player of all time on just because his skill set is unbelievable. I mean how many how many times have we seen a guy who's close to seven feet with with an absolute. You know just wet jump shot from anywhere like that. He's also an incredible defensive player lawyer. That's an interesting thing that we can talk about. What steph too 'cause he sort of. I don't think he gets Nestle credit. I wouldn't say he's a great defender by any means but I think he's a good team defenders. I wouldn't really necessarily hold that against him. I Kobe is a better defender than Steph but that is interesting because I I think you know when we look back in history well. I think we're going to look back and say that durant was was the better player than staff but I'm not sure that's necessarily true. No He's been I mean Cerruti. If you had right now you had Kevin rain his prime and what he's capable of Steph Curry. Who are you taking Kevin Durant garble. It's curry the one thing about step that you brought up which is true all the efficiency and everything like that but the one thing is he with go ahead of the curve with the NBA people had no idea how to guard and then guide the Justin so did he take a backseat because guys adjusted or did he take it back because Kevin durant like was he able to be the best player on that team was able to say Kevin Durant like this is my team mm-hmm sits at the side because you can use the D. way. Lebron situation like Lebron comes down to Miami. Dwayne was the man but the Brown John was clearly the best player on that team. Kevin Durant to me was clearly the best player on those teams so so is it a back seat. Is it or or D. Wade probably getting I don't want to punish you know like move down the list because of the way that he played had to take a back seat till abroad time to wire steph curry not getting the same taking a backseat or why did Kobe is getting things taken away from him because he took a backseat to shack but it's okay for steph curry ticket back seat to durant. It does seem like there's a lot of discrepancies in what we got going on right here. It is weird because you know and they have dwayne. Wade at as an as number twenty one on this list so he's he's pretty damn highs. Well and I think that's about right I mean Wade obviously WanNa title on his own before Lebron got there but I do think the gap between the broad and Wade. I'm AH is much much bigger than the gap between Steph Curry and Kevin Durant. I think steph curry and Kevin Durant are right there with each other. I'm not sure given given the day I I don't know who I put like. It depends on the situation relation of WHO. I'd put ahead of them all right. Let me let me just interrupt you. Let me just ask one question. It's seventies eighties nineties early early. Two thousands now moving forward Kevin Durant could play any of the era's right and you'll be dominant okay so steph curry dominant in any any of the era's like not really right well. That's the fascinating thing about this. It's so and you know this got so hard to compare eras right because the way the guy's the way guys were able to defend in the nineties and the eighties. I mean if that ever happened today. That just wouldn't work. I mean like Steph curry the hand checking in just like the physicality of the game you you know Steph Curry's what six one six two pretty slight I'm not sure how that style of basketball at work. I'm not sure honestly if he was such a great shooter back then I'm not even sure like the game would it would have been able to utilize them as well because the game hadn't evolved to the point that it has right now for worth three point shooting is pretty much everything basically a lot of offense is just get a three or a dunk and don't even take any twos or don't even take any mid range. Jump shots especially if you're the rockets right so I don't I I agree with you. Kevin Durant in any era is an MVP candidate. He is a he's. He's a HE'S A. He's an all time player. Steph curry in any other era. I don't know about that makes it interesting because I know a lot of people have tried to compare sort of the nineties bulls to to the seventy seventy-three win or whatever pick your whatever warriors team and I've always been like it just it depends on what rules they play by. I still think the warriors based on numbers would probably win that match up but if they're playing nineties basketball rules and those guys like Rodman and pippen are able to just like Mo guys like curry and Klay and not let let them you know get cleaned looks and not let them get to the basket. I that that I'd probably lean a little bit more towards the nineties team because just a different style of basketball so let's go back to your top ten lists right so are you. Is there any argument that Jordan wouldn't be great in any era. None would be what about Lebron any era magic any air especially the he magic would probably be better in this era to be honest with he'd be unbelievable bird any air same any urge. Umberto right so then other top ten you had Russell at a I guess some people I would never argue Russell. Just anybody that wins that much. You just have to assume. He has something different than everybody else right so this is like a winning quality about him that you're you're not going to be able to find you can talk about skill set all you want but if the guy he won an every single level and we know how difficult it is to win and I you could say great teammates but he played a San Francisco went to USA basketball. The Guy all he does is win so it's hard to say well his skillset only six nine. He's a freak athletes unbelievable conditioning additioning but I believe that he would be successful in the era. He played playing his style. I so to me it's curry. Curry is the one wine where you wonder like what if he grew up in a different era he be able to dominate could his skill set be like you know like a Lotta the Phil Jackson compared him to Mahmoud Abu Rove and if you watch Chris Jackson and my group play in the day with with the handle on the shot and everything like that he is like a poor man's version version of curry but it'd be interesting if Mahmoud play today with the stroke and he just instead of shooting at twenty two foot or shooting from behind the three so it is it's and but he really struggled with his size came into play almost every single game on the defensive end on the offensive and he wasn't able to pass over guys so like that was a big deal. A curry had to overcome that but the the game change which allowed him the overcoming overcoming now once again who if we're not gonNA compare errors which is really difficult to do. Curry deserves a top ten player but to me durant would be the one says like all the shaded durant has kind of been throwing into the warriors does this kind of like troll Kevin under a little bit after he watched his list and say like I was by far the best player on those teams with the one that went finals was when curry was struggling..
