"I think that's a better pick to go if you certainly New Orleans, keep the pick, I think they should go either Culver hunter is there a chance. John Morand is better more talented than Zion Williamson. Well, I mean the difference. So could he have more staying power and be like Lillard? Sure, you know, you certainly could do that and could Williamson ultimately, you know, not not be the dominant player that you can college. Of course you could. I mean basically played volleyball because he could in college basketball. I mean he just was three athletically, that no one could defend in all gonna stand in front of until maybe ran into taco fall. If you're not gonna, you know, so that was sort of the anomaly, and that that's not gonna happen in the NBA because it's much more physical there's much more size. So someone like John, rand can get around that he can fly over people. And yeah, I mean, I think there's a chance that we could be talking more about him years from now, but I still say the time Williamson has the personality and maybe jumper it will grow into it because. He's not as much of an extrovert, but he's really started to embrace it because, you know, he was not overly recruited. He had the he's got that ship that edge because he went to a place like Murray, and had to prove himself. And when I've interviewed him, I sense of a young man was starting to find himself starting to feel more comfortable in the public space. Whereas I am has been in that arena for quite some time. So I think jock could evolve into that kind of player that because much more of a face of the franchise and one of the faces of the NBA, I'll leave you with this, the disapp- there's disappointment, and then there's bust now busters extreme like Anthony Bennett would be a bust Marquel Foltz right now is a bust, Greg Oden, because he got injured, I guess is the bus Kwami Brown was a bust, Michael, all of a candy might be more of a disappointment than a bust, but how high up in the draft like at what point can you not become a bust because. As you got drafted at six or seven. Like Boston's usually one or two, isn't it? Yeah. I mean, you're forgetting one of the all time Boston Darko Milicic. So at number two, yeah. Yeah. Number killing what happened about drafting or three? So, yeah, I mean, for me, it's gotta be somewhere in that top five after that, especially now when the so many young players, you know, it's hard to dean someone a bus and, you know, there's a lot of chatter about whether, you know, Cam radish, will eat pan out and, and said this, I think he's sort of like the fifth Beatle. The guy that got lost in the shuffle among all the other players, because he's not very outspoken and didn't sort of seek that kind of limelight and was not as much in the inner circle, buddy group as I an RJ, but if he goes, you know, somewhere in the seven to ten range, it's not he doesn't pan out. I don't know if that's fair to say that he didn't work out and was a bus because he. Didn't end up going out and the top three. Now if if all this time with John Marin, and he completely, you know, flames out, then yes, then that would be a fair assessment. But the on I'd say four or five, I don't know if that's their and too good to talk to. You have fun tomorrow night, and during free agency. We appreciate your time as always, aren't they that's Andy Katz? NBA draft analyst and NBA TV's expanded draft night coverage..

"Gimme two or three young players. In fact, go train for the number three picks. So I can play with RJ. Give me a couple of other guys that would be my thought process, if I was him or his camp, or his soon to be determined agent, and we'll see if they get there. Yeah, I was thinking about that as well where you look at where things went wrong with Anthony Davis is the pelicans got a D. They knew how great he was. He was amazing almost instantly certainly by his second year. He was like off the charts. And then they got impatient and traded for. Veterans to try and sort of win and capitalize on all that, as soon as possible. I hope they don't do that with on because I, I was thinking about it comparing the Brandon Ingram and number four offer with what the Knicks could potentially offer with a couple of different picks. Kevin knox. Maybe you get Mitchell Robertson, as well. But that, that Knicks offer is more. Interesting to me, despite the fact that, like Brandon Ingram is a good player who could probably help you win thirty five or forty games now but I would slow play it if I were David Griffin and try to stockpile assets over the next couple of years and build slowly around I on. Yeah. What he did it do what the Anthony Bennett Andrew Wiggins duo. What could have been exactly? Gayton says let's assume AD to the Lakers is dead in the water in that scenario if kyri signs with the Lakers in free agency. Then what about a Los Angeles Cavaliers reunion? Yup. I'm talking about a Kevin love trade, Brandon Ingram from for Kevin. Love, then what's your reaction to that possibility? It would be so good for a Kevin Love's banana Republic spokesman opportunities. That it sounds like an absolute nightmare for me personally. I mean I could see why they would do it. I could. Absolutely see that unfolding is Kyrie ready to talk his tail between his legs. That's the, the real open question there. But I think right for Kevin love makes some degree of sense for both those teams. I mean, Cleveland they're kind of a weird spot in this draft order because they're number five right? Yeah. So they're probably looking at one of those wings, when she think covert or hunter. Yeah. So where's that getting them right in the short term, it could be a while? So I if you realize you got a brand new coach, he's going to be trying to treat this as like probably like a quote unquote college program developmental style, like Kevin. Love doesn't really fit with that. I mean, I think he's wide open on the tray block. And if you're LA. I don't think that they're going to get the list free agents. So he's still, you know, an all star level player, who has a comfort with LeBron. You don't have to work that hard to talk yourself into it. And I think LeBron would give it the quick thumbs up, too. So I don't think it's that far fetched. I do think the one question point would be Kyrie's thinking, and I want to see can you get inside his head. What's kyri thinking right now? And that is actually, like probably the number one question headed into the offseason because he's the most inscrutable player in the NBA, and maybe Hawaii, actually, but, like Kyrie's impossible to read, and he's a major wildcard as we head toward, July because he has Lakers implications. Nixon publications maybe nets implications clippers like he's all over the board. And I will believe literally any rumor that is floated related to his free agency, and obviously Celtics implications to my only reactions to what you said beyond that our number one. It could. Be a while should be the official Cavs slogan for the next five years. And number two. I understand that. It's plausible to put Kevin love in LA when LeBron but, like watching those calves reunited on the Lakers, fling, five years later would be so so depressing as a sports fan. And as someone who's rooted for all of those guys at various points..

"First overall to have that sort of hope he's all going back ten years. We got dandruff. I in last year Marquel? Foltz big bus. Ben Simmons Karl Anthony towns could play our Andrew Wiggins nothing blown here. I'm talking about buzz and hope and hope. Fan base, gene, play Anthony Bennett. One of the worst number one picks ever, Anthony Davis, hydraulic, kyri Irving. John wall Blake Griffin Derrick rose. I mean, those last ones are monsters, but with with coming out of college though in turn they were monsters when they started this much hype. Right. But with Zion was he six seven six seven six eight I guess he'll be no no perimeter game. So he's going to have to go down low with the big boys v. The I guess competent a lot of people are mentioned he's Barclay with him. I know you went grandma. Yes. I I look more like, I think more of a Shawn Kemp the more athletic. Maybe what you're saying a lot, right? I think Murray's the the guy who's gonna fit in right away. Okay. Well, you're talking about which which draft homeboy from rant your. Yes. Someone who's gonna play your mom. I mean, I guess that by the way that is a hell of a consolation prizes. Number two overall. That's probably not going to be the salmon equation. I know, but I thought Kawamori certainly in the NFL as as a guy that has got that buzz to that everyone's talking about right now. Yeah. And it should be thinking they're lucky stars for Baker Mayfield. Or really Russell Wilson. That's true. Because before the short quarterback, no one really cared. And if you want to be even go back and say breeze drew Brees being doing it. And he's won an all time greats. You can't even go back and go Flutie on you can't win Charlie ward sitting there like what the hell let the hell, bro. What's up? Bats basketball ball. That's right. We talked Kordell Stewart the other day. Oh, my. Coming out of college after what he did to my alma mater thrown into Westbrook. All the way into the end zone. You know, that's my all modern, Colorado. I'm above played played for the buffs. Did you really ask? What we don't do it? What would you? What was your football playing career Brennan? Oh, three. Oh, six. Gary Barnette us big twelve nor chance. What up? We got our tails kicked though by Vince young for the Texas longhorns. And Jason Williams and agent Peterson for Oklahoma. Was joking teams was Joel Klatt your calls. My quarterback very good friend of mine. Smart, dude. Talk about small world did the draft with him as brilliant as dynamite. He's great great. Now. He was when he was a quarterback in college. He was older because he played baseball. Yeah. So he was like the older kind of right hand man of the coach he kind of bosses around. But he's he's very smart. Well, you know, I really enjoyed working with him. He was he's brilliant. So I mentioned Brennan shop here on the rich Eisen show all of your personal. Accomplishments that you are killing it on right now. There's a big fight this weekend is or not there's a big fight Deontay wilder Saturday night the property seven the bomber here. He comes man, the bomber dropping bombs against Brazil. It's a good fight Brazil's. Only loss was against Anthony Joshua lesson. Seventh-round right. It's a really good fights a good. It's a good. I should say tests for Deontay wilder because the the real the big three right yet Tyson fury Deontay wilder in Athy Joshua. Well, they're not fighting right now. So it's kind of you know, the this is what you're going to get. And so it's a good test. And while Wilders definitely fighting the the best match about a definitely those three..

"Here's a stat of the day. Four of the last six number one overall picks in the NBA draft not born in the United States. And Karl Anthony towns dual citizenship Dominican Republican America is he part of the four. No, he would be the fifth, but he was technically born I think in New Jersey, but he plays the Dominican national team for awhile. All right run down the list. Then wait are we counting? Canada's part of the United States are not. It's it's not the United States. Just rip it on a friends up north after they beat by Sixers. Why are you doing that? We love Canada fear, the deer, Dan. Oh, that's right now your books fan. Yes. Well, two thousand thirteen the Cavs took Anthony Bennett of Canada. Cavs took Andrew Wiggins of candidates and fourteen Karl Anthony towns is dual citizenship American Dominican Republic. So he's not even actually on this list. Sixers Ben Simmons Australia Marquel. Foles USA, the Andrey eight and Bahamas. Oh bahamas. It candidates put together pretty good run here. And I go back. I think the lineage here is Vince Carter. I'm guessing bins Carter's impact on Canada and basketball. I I don't know if you could properly put it in in its proper context here. I I don't know McClelland that makes perfect sense RJ bear this year, by the way, it should be the top two or three candidate as well. It's gotta be right around that too. They're all born right in Vince Carter time, exactly. And Vince coming back for one more year. I think yes. Yeah. Vince Carter became a star in Toronto all-star age Twenty-three year two thousand nineteen years ago. Okay. Yeah. No through them. At did. Kris van excels at Canada's national team was going to be a real factor in the Olympics. I know he loves Spain stack. But I spent feels like, you know, you mentioned all those guys they should be able to maybe beat the US, but not quite there. Good players. It depends on who plays for the United States. Yeah. Like Andrew Wiggins R J Barrett. Well, I mean, they're competitive. I don't know how good they are right. I mean Andrew Wiggins of big disappointment. And it really is. I thought that the Cavs made a big mistake and letting him go because I thought you know, what you get an athletic guy. Getting him at the beginning of his career, not gonna cost you a lot in the first what four years, and I don't know it feels like a Minnesota just went in and just wants the cash out get his get his money, and then just sort of play. It's rare when I go boy did you see Wiggins the game hen towns, you'll get that. Maybe that's why Jimmy Butler was so frustrated where you're going. You got this guy with this much talent. See and Edger Wiggins is gonna end up making like four hundred million dollars in his career. Yes. Yeah. And probably be viewed as a disappointment. We've got Jamal Mary candidate as well. Okay. Yeah. It's all right. It's a good list there, and it all has to do with Vince Carter, I think going up to it's not Damon Stoudamire wasn't. He the first real star in Toronto. He was rookie of the year. I believe for the raptors. How long ago is Stott Amar? Late nineties. What was his they mighty mouse. Yeah. He was great. Yeah. He was we'll see Zona university of Arizona. Left-hander yet nineteen Ninety-six Ninety-seven and with the raptors he was good. Yeah. But see the first star the raptors I would think so busy expanded right around that their best player the first season was Tracy Murray who UCLA Brian, and do you remember them McGrady gradient Vince Carter were they were together for a little bit and their cousins, I think, but they never really jived..

"Give back to the phones at eight say ESPN it any seven to nine three seven seven six by the way before I get to the phones Marquel? Faults being traded. I said it on the air today. I'll say it again, he might end up being the biggest bust number one overall pick bust in NBA history. If things don't change jury's still out. He's only twenty years of age. He's got a chance to resurrect themselves. Get himself on the right track. I think he's a really really good kid. Ladies and gentlemen. There are things that have gone on with him on a personal level. There's not anybody's business. That has derailed his basketball career. It's not about basketball. It's about life with him. And I pray for him every day and wish him nothing. But the best I really really do. But if he doesn't turn this around based on what we saw him doing college transitioning that to what we've seen since he's arrived in the NBA. It'll be a bigger bust and Anthony Bennett of the gaps. It'd be a bigger bust than. A big a bus than. Is that bad? But I'm rooting for you Marquel? I hope you get it turned around hope he shows up and shows out in Orlando wherever else he ends up. I do think the Sixers did a good job getting Jonathan Simmons form. Now. I'll tell you that much. Let's go to Bethany you lava Stephen what's up after me. How are you? Stephen. I love your show. Love your song. I was I wanted to call about what you just mentioned about the faults trade. I think I agree with you. I think you know, if things don't change it can be a bust, and I think that it was good for him to get out. So my question is for the Sixers you think now with the trace of Paris that if they don't make into the Eastern Conference finals isn't a disappointment. This is disappointed, but it's not a bust because Milwaukee Toronto amd, Boston a formidable. Now, they lost to anyone other than those three teams that would be a problem. But if they run into one of those three which obviously is likely since they expected to be the top four season Eastern Conference Toronto, Milwaukee Boston and Philadelphia if Philidelphia loss to one of those teams, we can understand it if they lost to Toronto who just acquired Markelle Sala at him to let it and Siaka and who know being cholera, and Danny green and those boys. We can't sit up there. Dismiss that. What if we're talking about the Milwaukee Bucks? They just they just added Marotta JR. Would his stretch for abilities? The ability shoots over about nearly thirty seven percent..

"This. That's good stuff with Barclay. And he's right. You know, every funny if it was just LeBron Anthony Davis, and then they took on the other team the other team had like, you know, twenty two guys. And then LeBron Anthony Davis because that's what it's going to be like if he does trade all of these guys whose leftover yes, mclovin. Okay. Someone tweeted us a poll question. All right. I'll figure too like who would win LeBron's all star team or the original dream team. Lebron Katie kyri Kawai and harden with Anthony Davis and Klay Thompson off the bench or the dream team to me that feels like a bit of a slight to the dream team. This is only half the great players in the NBA. Well bird wasn't. He wasn't himself. Then you know, he was a mere shell is bad back. He had some older guys on that team the dream team. Right. But yet enough young guys, maybe it's my age. But to me the dream team is like the most unbeatable group of all stars ever collected. The heartache at the dream team was bad as well. Dan is shooting down there? Okay. Elax adapt here. I'm just saying I, you know, in the course of my day. I wasn't going to I didn't think I'd be answered a question about the dream team against LeBron's all stars. This was not Michael. By fan. I know. Okay. What else? Do you have the backups by the way on a dream team? The backups were Karl Malone. David Robinson, Clyde Drexler. They are coming off the bench. Yeah. Okay. Who is the most disappointing and the word is disappointed. Not the worst player number one overall pick in the last say fifteen years, Greg Oden, Anthony Bennett Derrick rose Marquel faults disappointing because of what he could have been what we could have been and I'm going to put volts on. And the other question is is there any chance of Markelle Fultz won't go down as one of the all-time number one overall bus. Well, there there's a chance that he won't because he needed a fresh start. And I said all along you gotta get him out of Philly because it's just a mess. It's a reminder every time Boston does something. Well, or Jason Tatum. We got more careful. I don't know. What happened? I he got injured. And then he had the shoulder issues or did he start to get into his own head and then had shoulder issues. But in Orlando, you can go you can come off the bench. You know, you're not leading sportscenter with Orlando. And maybe he can ease back in and have a career because going back to watching him is one year at Washington. He had a nice shot. He had a nice release point. He could shoot threes. He had confidence. Now you watch him. And you see this with a lot of these younger players. Ben Simmons Lonzo ball, even you know, the Greek freak they get into that area where they're like. Oh god. I don't wanna take their shot. Lonzo ball doesn't want to go to the hoop. He doesn't wanna get Foudy doesn't want to go to the line. Like you can't play that way in. Here's Foltz who they were begging him to take a twelve footer and he didn't want to take it. And it was painful to watch that. So hopefully gets a chance Anthony benefits making a comeback in the G league. He's actually played well. Well, I don't know if he's going to be on a be brought up, but he's actually played. Well, I think Greg Oden really bums me out because he never had a chance. And if he was healthy he could play if you look at his stats over thirty six minutes his second year in a league before he got injured. He was averaging seventeen points, thirteen rebounds and four blocks a game for thirty minutes. He never got the taste of stardom at least Derrick rose had a good taste of stardom for three or four years. He's not a buzzed a disappointment because you got in your job. I mean, he's going to be the only MVP not to win the hall of Famer definitely not a bust, but disappointed because of what he could have been, but he's made a comeback. Unbelievable. Yes. That's I feel like there should be an injury injury exemption from the bus list. They've if you can't be a bust if you just had bad knees or something, you know, if injury took you took your career from you. I don't think you should be labeled a bus some people just get to the league. And they stink. That's a boss. Yeah. Sam mbui. He he was injury prone. It wasn't his fault Bill Walton, you know, that he was injury prone as well. Didn't have a long NBA career. Greg Oden, a little more complicated. I've seen like HBO real sports on his personal stories battled with some with some substance issues and stuff because of the pain. So I don't know if he was just injuries to he's I've seen that he went to a lot mentally must be hard to be number one overall pick that the back, captain obvious. Thank you. Mclovin. Hey, did I give you the dream team poll question? You know, what what's the dream team poll question? So we're going to say, which is the best. Okay. Thank you. All right. We'll settle on a poll question we will recap. What went down the drama that was then folding yesterday in front of Jim Jim Nance will not have something as dramatic this weekend at the AT and T Pebble Beach Pro-Am like he did yesterday. And I that's not understating. He didn't have something as dramatic last Sunday night as yes, yes. In fact, he even said yesterday in his backyard was more exciting than the Super Bowl. He did drink loving. Attention was unbelievable. Yes. Unbelievable. We're going to be people twenty five thirty years from now who are going to say, oh, I was there. I saw it kind of like Woodstock everybody was. Yeah. You know, there's only six of one hundred point game. I think there were seven seven and a half people there. Nance's wife, Courtney and his son and his son. I believe is around four three or four. It was interesting to see the nice guy veneer, come down and the competitor come out. He got a job. He went Jim Nance Joffe. No joke. Unbuttoned, the sweater. And it was go. Yeah. Yeah. We'll take a break. We'll take a break and come back. We will recap the par. Three contest. It's meet Friday. That's a trigger. Meet Friday Chadwick is here. We got the trigger fired up. I'm not sure what we're having that will rival what happened last night. We had meet Thursday night last night as Chad had the traeger out fired up. Good stuff so McFaul to that and meet Friday songs as well. All right. We'll take a break seventeen after the hour here.
