"To bring Andrew Holiday to find an impact player to improve this team. They're trying to get Yonas Lieutenant Cooper to sign that five years Supermax contract. He certainly wanted to see them make improvements. The Bucks are also sending Dante de Vincennes own DJ Wilson Anderson Ilyasova to the King's in exchange for 66 Winged boy, Tom Bogdanovich, a solid three point shooter, who averaged over 15 points per game last season. What does all that mean for Wednesday's draft? Well, it means the Bucks no longer on a first round pick. As part of the deal, the Bucks will swap second rounders with the pelicans. That means Milwaukee now owns second round picks number 42 60 and GM John Horse has seven roster spots to fill before the season begins near the end of December. Every chance that we have to improve on our team if we would have won an NBA championship this past season This would be our biggest offseason because we have to figure out how to do it again.

"Let's talk about. I'm going to throw some random some random like I don't know what's going on here teams players and we can just sort of have phone with it. I don't know what's is going on with the Phoenix Suns do they a buyer seller. I mean they're in they're not completely out of it. They're like in twelfth or eleventh. You know to me the way. The Blazers are playing I got A. I would bet that they would overtake the Grizzlies But the PELICANS are blazers. spurs-grizz is going to be a fun three team race for the rest of the season. Yeah and and New Orleans and New Orleans is coming. That's right Zach. Boy I'll tell you Zion. Zion is everything. Everyone said he was there when he when he won he gets the ball on the left block and he spins baseline he is gone before his defender even knows what in the hell just happened and if he misses his second jump is so fast. Like he's going so fast. I'm not sure he's fully like oh I like in control of it. Rarely do see a guy who has an insane first step an insane second jump. That dude is ridiculous. He's been awesome even though it's very clear he's a little bit overwhelmed with everything being thrown at him the tragedy that we had in the NBA Day in the country last week obscured What was a phenomenal? I Five Games Zion. Nobody nobody had had the ability to even pay attention to it. But Zion was great and even like yesterday the played in Houston and even though they lost that game. Zion had like three or four jaw-dropping place If you're phoenix like can you win that race I mean. I'm I'm kind of like if they wanted to I I can. I'll tell you the answer is no. You can't right but I don't know if they've come. I mean like if they could sell Aron Baynes for a nice piece they wanted. And that's that's a guy that the clippers I'm sure would be very interested in. He's a very good player. Aaron if he's healthy ambience helps you in basketball games. And he's I mean he's great. He's great for the clippers. Kevin Pelton Kevin Pelton noted today in his piece on Drummond. He is one of those guys who may not blow you away with his rebounding only totals but he's boxing out like eight dudes at the same time so everyone else can go. Every ounce can shoot. Three's great break type of guy that you would would feel good about trading for because he's not gonNA come in and rock the boat You know total work on my defence shoot threes. I don't know let's let's talk about the Pelicans. Forget the sons. I don't know what the sons are going to do. And we can talk about it in this context. But I don't really know what's going to happen with jrue holiday. He's the sexiest name. That is allegedly on the market. I just can't tell how much on the market he actually is. And it's it's interesting from this perspective. I like this. PELICANS team they start. Lonzo drew Ingram. Zion favors men. They plays Diane Summit Center and they play him some with Meli. But you would think that lineup is a little bit low on shooting but Lonzo shooting a better now. Ingram's had an amazing shooting season. And they just they. There's so so much ball handling and I q on the floor at the same time and already. It's very clear that Zion's feel in passing is the most underrated part of his in terms of like. There was not a lot of hype about that. and He's order very good at that and I feel the way his passing the way I did about Ben Simmons Defense when I saw Ben Simmons playing. They've as all my God. This guy's a monster monster defensively. Nobody told me that I liked the way they play and drew. Holly fits all that. He's another ball handler. He's not overtaxed handling the ball with this group on on the other hand. All those guys are young. They're all on the upswing. How much do you really lose this season? If you trade drew holiday and in return you get like a league average shooting guard the name I just made up Gary Harris like half a win half win this season. How many wins next year? Like how much difference does it actually make to have downgrade. If you can upgrade elsewhere. Get some draft assets like it's a it's a really interesting like Zion is. You just threw a thirty percent usage rate onto your team. So there's he's taken possessions from everyone including drew holiday. I'm just not sure as at and I think is really good. I'm just I'm not sure how much they lose if they can find the right deal but it's Denver. It's Miami it's maybe a surprise team ex- like I just don't I don't hear a a lotta like it doesn't seem like it's going to happen. Does it seem like it's going to happen. No I mean in conversations with the Pelicans have had with other teams. They've expressed abreast and interest if they're going to do anything acquiring another veteran player because one of the things that they thought lead their struggles. Early on was how young they were. And when Derrick favors came back from being away from the team with injury and he had a personal tragedy his mother passing away that the stability that even even he added to that made a humongous difference and that they almost like. They're too young so the idea that they would take a stable veteran and trade him seems seems. Seems like I was against what they've been talking about having said that if they've made jrue holiday available there would be a bidding war especially because of the dearth right now and you know when you talk to when you talk to various executives around the League when you talk philosophy with them. One of the things that they'll talk about is the best us time to to sell is nobody else's selling and you know if the mixture trade Marcus Morris did knicks could get a bidding eating war for Marcus Morris right now if they traded him. That's another clipper option. Thanks to sign him in free agency they would definitely. I would be shocked if the clippers wouldn't go up their first round. Pick for Marcus Morris. That's pure speculation on my part. I WanNa make that clear that just makes too much sense. Yes so if they actually made holiday available I think Miami would be bidding. I think Denver would be bidding. I think is what is Miami bidding. I don't think they're being hero. I just I don't see it. You see it. He heroes the piece that swingset like okay. You're in the conversation now. I okay I guess but if if Miami and I traded for holiday by Thursday I'm thinking I have a chance to win the east this year so I mean let's just you know here's anything I'm always going to me personally. I'm always going to be partial to drew. I by the way I would not trade him. You made the case in your calm today about about from an asset standpoint. I would I would. I would if I can get this if I can get plug and play replacement. Who's worst Andrew Holiday and two to three future assets so like me Beasley to me is not a future asset because we're GONNA have to pay a lot of money One first round pick plus Beasley does not interest me if I can get. They're the Denver doesn't have a player who fits the bill. But just let's say yes they do. Yes they do. They're well. They're not trading Michael Porter Jr.. It's not okay. Well you're not getting your tabled by himself. It's I'm doing the trade in a millisecond if I'm New Orleans just that plus as you said that trade is not available if I if if I can get like two unprotected first round picks and a plug and play player that I feel okay giving minutes to Andrews Place. I think I do that if my new world. If I'm New Orleans it's not an easy decision. I loved you holiday. I wrote a big huge profile of drew holiday last year. I think he's a fantastic human being a great player sunny easy decision. I just think that's what I would do. That's all okay. So here's what I'd say. I covered part of the game in the series two years ago when New Orleans swept the the blazers in the first round and I saw you holiday at his absolute peak. Shutting down to as much as you can shut down Dame Lillard. Okay I would never WANNA lose that player unless you know he obviously wage out at some point but I. I want that play on my team. I think that you know you're talking about about maybe replacing them with the US. Gary Harris Rush Gary Gary Harris can't do that so if I wanted to be a contender in the next year or two I think New Orleans has big big aspirations for next season. I don't think he's as easily replaceable. And I if I'm the world's already have assets and picks and stuff coming from the Lakers. It's it's a hard decision it is interesting. You bring up that series because that's series was four games. It has really changed the perception of drew holiday around the league. It it and we haven't quite seen that guy since that series but the playoffs just resonate and I think rightfully so the stage ages bigger. The Games matter much more I I was. I was at the the the Games in Portland They finished very very strong That year the the place was absolutely rocking. As you know. Portland can get I've been to four playoff games in Portland the last two years. They lost four of them because I was at the Western Conference finals last year but it was a jaw dropping performance by do holiday in that series. Did it leave you a Gog I was. I was a gawking at at at those games Denver. I've said this before and I'll just reiterate I'll see if view agree with me. 'cause you pretty much the exact opposite and your call today. Good if I'm Denver. I'm looking at the lay of the land. And I see the clippers and Lakers. I think the clippers the Lakers will both be stronger a year from now. You give the Lakers. They're exceptions. This summer you give them a chance to sign. More minimum guys is who want to join that team that chemistry there looks great. Looks like a place you want to go I think that you know depending on how much gas left in the Bronx tank Doc. I suspect the Lakers will be better year from now. I also expect the clippers to be better a year from now. They will retrofit a little bit that you give them another cycle. They have a great front in office. You're going to get a chance to get in Paul George more settled. I think both of those teams are better a year from now. I think if you're going to if you're going to take it from one of them this year or your take it from one of them. It's going to be now. It's going to be this year and if I'm Denver and I know that some of that I'm going to lose potentially two three guys off my roster because I just can't afford them become free agents. I just can't afford them. I sense that the time is now would go now. You like the problem is for them. They have have nobody to see. I mean there's nobody to go trade for you know so. If drew holiday became available I would seriously consider trading Michael Porter form and and people in Denver People in Denver with slapped me across the face for not I would not but my that we disagree. I would definitely not unless you know what the one wildcard is. I've got if I'M DENVER. I've got I've got the health does ebay and I know more about his health than any team in a league. I've presumably googlies put hundreds of man hours and expertise into studying it in projecting that long term. That's the only that's the only thing that could put but right now what he's doing on the court I'm I'm an absolute would know on it. So here's the thing..

"Drew holidays, Julius Randle is still there for the moment, and they're trying to build something they've accumulated picks. Because that's what David Griffin has been doing. But to sit up in say he's not a savior Zion is not a savior and remind us that is a veteran on here who has shown up in the postseason in the past in enjoy holiday to allude to the players that you acquired and bowl Ingram and Josh Hart. To just draft to kill Alexander Walker. With the seventeenth pick civil with the thirty fifth pick tap, protect the first round picks in twenty twenty twenty twenty one first round swat with the Lakers at twenty twenty three and unprotected first round pick from the Lakers twenty twenty four. Gentlemen. David Griffin has done a hell of a job and opened a way how about resigning or making sure that Alvin gentry returned as the coach una pelicans. Tell you send about Alvin gentry. Wreck. It doesn't necessarily speak to it. Clippers Detroit Pistons, Phoenix Sohn's now New Orleans pelicans. He's a championship coaches in the system was Steve Kerr and Golden State Warriors before he got the new all these job. Let me be very, very clear to you about something you need to understand about Alvin gentry. The mecca coach men, those basketball. And having said that I don't think ever ever ever in life have been more impressed with Alvin gentry there, what we saw last year. Take a moment. Ladies gentlemen, poor step back just a little bit. And think about what Alvin gentry endured through no fault of his own. He's coaching his team. They had just went to the semi finals at a Western Conference playoffs year earlier, going up against Golden State with Anthony Davis. Andrew holiday. Alvin gentry comes back this year. Right. When a season began right before the regular season began. Anthony davis. The parts from his former agent and size. We're Rich Paul and club sports. I'm telling you what happened. So he does that, right? And it's clear why he's doing it. He's gone out of New Orleans. Everybody in grandma knew that. And the likelihood is that because there's which poll, you knew that LA was going to be mentioned in the picture. That's just something you knew. Okay. That's just something you knew. All right. So what happens? Alvin gentry is the coach. Y'all trying to win basketball games. Get back to the postseason, but not only does our jet. You get informed. Anthony Davis go on out, not only does it gets publicized. Not only does Magic Johnson on the phone with former GM del Dem's, who refuses to accept the same deal that David Griffin, ultimately, agreed to with the Lakers. But also now, Alvin gentry is told Anthony Davis can't play in the fourth quarter of games? We don't sit them out. So Anthony Davis might drop thirty in the first three quarters and they might be in line to win games. But now we gotta pull him out to play the younger guys. Number one, you wanted to avoid them getting hurt. And number two. You didn't necessarily wanna win because you knew you aren't going anywhere with him because he wasn't gonna play for you..

"The number four picking this year's draft in to future. Number ones are now members of the New Orleans pelicans, I think this trade that works for both teams. Maybe if the Lakers, sign Amax free agent, the summer and they're talking about Kemba Walker right now. And I tell you what LeBron Kouzmin. Lebron coups. AD Kimba Walker. And maybe a boogie cousins. Next year and the Lakers only have room for one max age. But boogie coming off that torn achilles enough that torn quad, nobody's going to pay him big money, big years, you'd get him on the cheap. Boy, that's a championship team to me. Because cousins will be as close to healthy as he can get by the time the tip off next year and healed up and boogies. Right. I mean he's he was the best center in the NBA laughter at Orleans, pelicans and Kemba Walker AD LeBron. Kouzmin. And with Klay McKay DB out next year for the warriors. Yeah. That's a championship team to me short-term. That's big time for the Lakers now long-term. You've got Zion Williamson coming into the MBA, who is in my opinion going to be sensational. I think this is like LeBron coming into the league again. Remember, I, I know that sounds ridiculous. When you look at LeBron accomplish throughout his career, the Broncos and shoot when he came into the league was LeBron anymore. Was he athletic Zion coming into the NBA? Maybe not. He wasn't anywhere near as big. I think this is the most athletic guy that's ever come into the NBA Zion, Williamson, your incredible, especially to consider his size. Brandon Ingram was playing at an all star level last year before he had that blood clot Lonzo ball believe will be much much better with the pelicans. The Lakers, he was poorly coast. He was mismanaged. He wasn't used properly. I think the gentry offense ball, Andrew holiday. I like that. That's a good back court then you look up fronts. I and Brandon Ingram and who knows who their big. I'll be because they're going to have about eighteen to twenty million dollars to spend in free agency themselves this summer. Maybe they take a big with the number four pig. Maybe they take garland, who I could be another Damian. Lillard their future is brighter. Throw and to number one picks coming up in the future..

"By releasing every trae package that he came what we that what you get. Now wjm guy that got your job job that you could can't head you made this deal. You could have been sitting in the cat mercy. But now you're at home. Watching me tell you have ridiculous. You were by doing this, the same guy who just two weeks ago, completely gave up on the trade sat over there with his chin and he just gave up. It's not gonna happen. Nobody's coming to the lake. You'll better up flop Adamas at work again. So you're right about me. Zilly me. I thought that Anthony Davis would reconsider Kinser number one. They hired David Griffin. I have nothing but respect for David Griffin. He brings a credibility to that position. They have not had there in New Orleans, maybe ever in number two, they, obviously hit the lottery. They landed the number one overall against all okay. All in number three, I'm gonna say it again if Anthony chooses to force this trade through he's going to leave ninety million dollars on the table in New Orleans that he could get for re-signing with his home team. Well, we do a sign and trade. Okay. Well, maybe but I don't think that's going to happen either. I think he's going to walk away from ninety million dollars. And I wonder what his agent rich Paul's advising that? We'll get about. Because it's possible that Rich Paul is at cross purposes. Here is priority climb. Lebron important than right? Maybe he sides on because he's got to keep his better interest. I'm not gonna do in twenty eighteen his number one was skipped. The summer of twenty eight teen was LeBron Jane now if some of twenty nineteen and if my focus is LeBron always. Nope. It is. You know what can be true? Okay. And I even thought that Anthony would have the cachet with David Griffin to say, hey, could we at least think about maybe taking Jami rant instead Zion, because John rant is a pure pass first point guard, who would be the most beautiful perfect fit with AD Andrew holiday, who's more to.

"The summer, the that's team that can be up the pelicans, if they keep Anthony Davis. Andrew holiday Zion hits. Let's be an intriguing little team. They got David Griffin now and Dell Dem's people thought was the worst, anybody gene, Randall back. That's, that's an interesting yet is very interesting young. Yes. Still interesting when it can be fun. Yeah. We used to go to New Orleans. And of course, the Laker show up. You get so, like a packed house when the warriors shelves packed. But other than that, man, you look around at arena, and be like half full, those days over now over now not a desire on manigault gets going to pack that building, which is good to see New Orleans. And because you get on there and the bunch empty seats and he don't like to see that in a rare but now that that's that the problem's over they, they're going to sell that place, especially I on lives up to the hype. I think he could if they open style basketball wondering up and down and take advantage of his athleticism, and the open court who nobody right up where we just hold on. I hang onto him. Why are you going to trade him? And he is he is right now. Now, we all got to see plans out hands out. I mean AD oh, eighty I would try to hold onto them to seek because you've got until February right? And if it's eighty percent of what you might get now and take the you know if you have a twenty percent chance of keeping him. Yeah. And maybe you lose out on twenty five thirty percent. He's like so many teams want him like you're you're gonna get a good trade in February. He has to agree to sign an extension wherever he goes, when he gets trade, otherwise not going to give up half their roster to get him for house season. Yeah, but if, if I was New Orleans David Griffin, I would keep a from now, I listen to, to, to trade pitches, I would listen to him, but my my, my feeling would be, I'm going to go into the season with him. I'm gonna continue good conversation with communication with say, eighty how you feel. Thing you know. Are you happy, especially if things are working with him? And he's having fun playing Zion and Julius. And it looks like they turn things around and winning least ask him. Are you happy? I've you changed your mind. We do what can. And I just asked him that I'd ask them that every few weeks how you feel happy. And if he keeps telling me, no, I still want out. I want out, I want they're not trade him. I gave it a shot, pull that you don't wait until February. Yeah, you could be used after when gay, which team do you want to go to because obviously, you gotta you to a team that's going to be assured that you're gonna resign with and find out who signed witness. Okay. Let's see what you got was when it was Utah, that traded like out of the blue, which I forget, which it was pretty much franchise guy, they traded. But it was you know they, they pulled the trigger way early for who Utah Jazz, who I forget, having a brain cramp, like twenty years ago. Ten years ago, it was relatively recently, man. Let's see trade. Rubio did entry Mitchell, nj go beer. It was I forget, but the point is like you don't have to wait. You could do a ten games in the season if you want. Yeah. So, right. Yeah. So that's what I would do. I feel you have to you have your the New Orleans pelicans you. Okay, fine. You get New York's package with the third pick. And the flotsam jets, they don't have any none of those young guys that they have profile out to be all star players. The Lakers have. More guys who could be pretty good. But that fourth Vic, maybe not going to be Anthony Davis. No, no. Of course, not of you got the guy, you gotta try to keep them Kevin knocks the third pick in the draft was just RG Barrett. Who else are throwing them maybe Dennis Smith..

Again. We'll be there ready to have time. So my question for you all is really about playoff basketball. So you know, you hear a lot about this is the regular season. But things are going to be different in the playoffs. Like, can you tell us what playoff basketball really needs? I mean, not just like oh the teams. Is trying harder. But you know, you hear a lot about difference that it'll be for teams with a lot of veterans who'd been to the playoffs many times how they have an advantage. Like what is their vantage? Like, what is it about the playoff scenario about how basketball in the NBA play differently during the playoffs? You know, why you need more team? Ball versus hero ball spell it out for. All right.

Hopefully, we can do some shows with live studio audiences, which would be awesome and looking forward to get in that you to support. Playoff basketball is not a cliche. It's a real thing. It's a real living breathing thing. Look no further than. Portland trailblazers that team as an exam last year. They were three see they went up against a six seed. In the pelicans. And not only do they lose that series. They got swept up as a matter of fact the year prior to that when they made the playoffs. They got swept into. So let me take you deeper into the box score in show you what's the difference between those two interational making it to the playoffs versus this year. Matchups. When they were playing last season against the pelicans. The back court consist of resign Rondo. Andrew holiday. Both of those guys. Physically more imposing than Damon CJ just genetically they're just as tall if not taller a lot stronger. The more physical and their wings are legitimately six seven six eight. And the reason why bring that up is when you plan small ball like three guards, then CJ like this year can be guarding somebody like Ferguson who's not really going to get the ball. And they're about the same Bill both slender basketball players. So now all of a sudden, nobody can physically Opole CJ McCollum, and he averages twenty points for a reason. Now, he moving between the leg behind the back getting buckets hands on shorts on defense..
"andrew holiday" Discussed on The Lowe Post
"So maybe internally the situation is just untenable in a way that I don't understand because I'm not living it as a member of the dowsman organization every year. Maybe they know they can get something really good for Dennis Smith. I suspect. That's not the case in the best. They can get is like a low lottery protected or worse first round pick. But we'll see I just on pure skill set. And I know the numbers with Smith dodgers together have been bad the numbers with dodge. But without Smith have been good. I just wouldn't be so quick to give up on it. Again, not knowing how untenable it is. Like, I want multiple ball-handlers. I want a guy with the size profile to defend opposing point guards. I like Dennis Smith is a catch and shoot catching Dr explosive catching Dr guy off the ball who maybe. Can can do some stuff with second units as the league? Like, I I like the outlines of that. And I'm not sure that I would be as quick to punt on it. As the Mavericks are again, not knowing everything that's happening there. I assume they're atmospherics and all kinds of weird stuff going on. Because again, I just era where every coach tells you we need multiple like playmakers on the floor at all times. I it just again somebody marshalling our second unit. I he will become if he how good is he catching shoot. I haven't looked at those his threes are up to thirty eight percent this year after thirty one percent lineup assume catch and shoot is better. But I will pull it up. Now, I checked as a couple of weeks ago. I remember it being good. But I check a lot of things all sort of to me if I'm Orlando or Phoenix. I just jump at it. I mean, I protect any pick. But I just think they're basically three teams right now that need point guards badly Orlando Phoenix in the third not be as obvious. But I've been watching a lot of Detroit Pistons basketball and Reggie Jackson was perfectly cast in Oklahoma City. He is a very serviceable. Backup point guard this league the lack of guard play Detroit is absolutely destroying that team. And it it's excruciating to watch the manufacture possession. And so, and I I always said Blake is your best transfer. And he is like like, by leaks. Inbound that's probably need to have somebody who was a perimeter who can actually generate good looks for other people in the nobody is a black hole but ball just drips around the perimeter into Blake who gets immediately double it is it is so ugly. And and just in the problems were Detroit is they just don't have their spreadsheet is so unforgiving right now. Like, they don't have a lot of assets. They have hunt a bad contracts. A ton of marginal guys that I can't imagine anybody is interested in and it goes on forever. This is not a. Is opening up space next season? And it is they desperately need someone like, you know, Dennis Smith would immediately become by leaps and bounds point the best perimeter player on that team bullet guy. I am on the book. But obviously doesn't he hasn't had any attributable pointer pointer. He's a good player. It is just. Yeah. Then Dennis Smith judgment here, and there sometimes he can hold the ball too long. And this like Joan here's he's young. He's young. I wanna get back to all, sir. I don't want. I'm gonna put Russ in probably in here. And here's why it's it's interesting the experience of just watching these guys, and I've geared my last ten days of game watching lemme find these borderline guys watch him as much as possible before I make my picture, you just you just feel Russ every possession in a way that you don't feel Mike Conley, Andrew holiday and all the other candidates that name you just have to deal with him and his physicality every single trip and his ability to just get at the rim almost whenever he wants. And that just has to have some sort of psychic toll on the other team. They'd like fear factor. Now, he bills you out a lot of those possessions with these jump shots that are not going into a rate..

I think they couldn't make the move to sign him to a long term deal because they've had so many misses on the wing. They're so desperate to pair a wing with Anthony Davis, Andrew holiday, which makes a lot of sense. So you couldn't pay big boogie big EMP and Anthony Davis up front when they have so much money in other guys. So I make sense what they're doing, but I think they could have become what they are right now with DeMarcus cousins. I think better off actually with that democracy could still be very, very good play. We know who's gonna come back from that injury, but I think David's probably is better off just with God like Nikola miratec around him can spread the floor a little bit. Now, Julius Randle wind do that as much, but at least Julius Randle can go and get his buckets DaMarcus. He's obviously a good distributors well, and he could. Cousins could go get. But I just sort of feel that Davis is one of those guys who's better as the solo star on. The team nest around role plays. This to me is just more of an abbot. Alvin gentry team is while they're playing faster leaner, just more space more athleticism all around the court, and that's me is good for Alvin gentry. And obviously it's good for Anthony Davis, letting him basically do whatever he wants out there. This level up that drew holiday has taken is really what is going to define if the pelicans are better with or without boogie. I think. Interesting. All right. Next one here guys up or down on Rudy, Gobert, repeating as defensive player of the year. Up, you think he does down repeal why the jazz were dominant defensively in the fifty six games that Rudy Gobert played after the all star break. They really took off. They were clearly the best defense in the league, and I think that's gonna still be the case. Again, this year he is the linchpin of their defense, and he's also the face of their defense. When you think of the jazz having a great defense, it starts with Rudy Gobert. There were times in the playoffs where he struggled, no doubt with Chris Paul hidden mid range after mid range just because that's what the jazz gave up. That's not every team in the league though. So, yeah, I would imagine that go bare puts up. Another intimidation factor with him is huge as well. Teams do like get away from going into the pint when he's eight because he goes off every shot. But Linda coming back is obviously going to change things a little bit. I don't know if he will be the same defensive presence for the rapper says he was for the Spurs because this Spurs such an incredible system defensively and Kawai is going to have to do a lot more for Toronto reach that level. But just to see if he can achieve what he did for San Antonio, it's going to hugely important for Toronto's defense, and also I lost you. Draymond green is another go. I had a bit of a down year, so it's going to be..

"The front office the coaching staff, providing stability leadership and recognizing that without these players without, these happy players then they don't have any of this, success right now, everything they touch, turns up gold the Midas touch if you must know for the Golden State Warriors and boogie cousins is yet another example of that regardless of what you believe about how many offers he had. Or didn't, have Have About what the pelicans were willing to pay him if they ever made a formal extended offer to, him regardless of what you. Believe it's pretty. Obvious there wasn't a major bidding war for DeMarcus. Cousins Coming off the achilles surgery in January missing that entire second. Half surge for. Anthony Davis Andrew holiday and Rajon Rondo and others They win a playoff series, they go into a series against the Golden State, Warriors but they do this without boogie And so there he, is free agent needing it opportunity To prove that he is still a world-class talent and I believe you will be there's no reason to think he's not. Going to recover and come back, from the achilles tear and I. Mentioned the staff before but it's still blows me away Steve Kerr hasn't had a twenty ten guy so far with the warriors meeting twenty points ten rebounds. Averaged per game until boogie who's, done it for seven straight seasons Cousins and his camp they're the ones who reached out to Myers and the warriors and that's. Another part of this that I just can't get over no other team can bitch and, complain about this because you all had the same opportunity to offer, boogie contract For a year and three and a half billion dollars And I think it's. Cool that not only did cousins reach out, to Bob Myers had that conversation about joining the warriors but then he talked to multiple warriors teammates who. He had played, with some of them for USA basketball every guy said, let's get another championship that. That was the first thing and we're really put me he's just the excitement There well established team. And they could easily No we don't, need them or whatever the case may be but I mean they were, excited That's never accomplish anything so. Just just, having FM alone Just being able to relax about. It'll be calm about the situation Well, that hunger makes them dangerous does it not as? A. Side note it's not like this team in satisfied or content Nope they actually had this killer instinct where. They just want to stop the rest of the NBA into submission that last. Year they looked vulnerable to me But the fact that they were able to win despite all the bumps and bruises. The ups and downs the backs and forts They're, scary now we don't know when he's going to be ready but it certainly does sound like he's already fitting in in fact he's the guy who, reminds me a little bit of a Draymond as if the warriors needed any more of an edge to, play for winning culture Also play with some of the most talented players of this era so You know those those who things. Alone That pretty much sums. It up just. To put this, out they're my favorite La forest.
