"Cities have been like zero percent. They've just been no traffic for awhile. Since the shutdown. Yeah Yeah I mean. There's traffic but not like traffic congestion. Yes exactly yeah. Yeah and Japan particularly vulnerable. Due to their aging population. Twenty percent of the country is over. Sixty five they have a large percentage of smokers as well and one of the denser populations in the world and one of the more transit rely on all of those factors that you would think could lead to a severe outbreak. But we're still. We're still trying to understand all of this to me. If you look at Indonesia for example they are at three hundred ninety nine to Indonesia's a lot of people don't know as over two hundred million people and a very dense society as well. You would think that it would be higher frankly at this point. It doesn't seem like a I haven't followed the news that closely out of there but it doesn't seem like they have done. You know severe lockdown type stuff yet so They are implementing a few other measures like a insisting that public transit buses trains airplanes only fill half their seats. Those seem like the kind of half measures that we don't really know the Cassisi of but maybe there is some reason that it hasn't been that bad there yet. Perhaps it's the weather who knows what it could be or maybe it could be that the scale of the outbreak is being missed or just got seated there a little bit later tough to say in a a lot of these places where we haven't seen a US style outbreak yet. But or it's delayed. Yeah yeah hard to know whether that's coming. I mean there's I can't think of a huge reason why wouldn't becoming into these places but maybe there is something that we don't understand that it's going to reduce the impact of the virus in some places. I mean about a month ago. The the death toll internationally was officially at about four thousand deaths and most of those are in China and so it can ramp up if it's undetected and spreading and then get into certain of the population. That's what happened in Italy and Spain then France than New York I'm not saying that is what's going to happen here. But that is certainly another possibility. Is that? It's just sort of lurking in silence. What do you make out of this news from South Korea that at least fifty one patients were diagnosed as having been fully recovered from the corner virus and have now tested positive after leaving quarantine and I think that story was a maybe two days ago? I actually this morning. Saw another source saying it was even a higher number of people like ninety patients or something I think the key takeaway for me was that there was quote unquote a relatively short period of time after they were given the all-clear that they tested positive again. And for instance if you look at the Crean. Cdc's director general. She said the infection was likely reactivated. After remaining dormant. In other words they weren't reinfected per se but it was likely false negatives and that was the thing we've talked about many times where they tested. They tested negative. They still had it. And then the symptoms. You know this is a disease where the symptoms can come and go as senator earlier. In the episode you can be in that hospitalized or illness period for a while and so probably just Prematurely discharged and that seems like the outcomes reeser explanation here. If it really were that widespread that people could get reinfected. I think we would have heard more reports out of this. We talked about some of the inconsistencies with testing. We can't rule out the possibility of reinfection but it would make this virus unique indeed if That occurred without after people have actually cleared it for a true reinfection where they acquire the virus again. Externally after it's been completely controlled occurs one more story internationally to get to out of Saudi Arabia. They have extended their nationwide curfew Sunday. They extended indefinitely after the country reported more than one thousand two hundred new cases of the krona buyers. In the last few days I will that will do it for us. Please support this parameter. You like it number one. Tell your friends about it We're going to be sunsetting it on dunked on within the next couple of days so people if they want to search for this the search for corona virus.

"Is that realistic? Just stay in your tent all day and don't talk to anyone. I mean the only solace that many people these interacting with other people within this vulnerable population. So you're GonNa have not do that. And they what are they supposed to do during that time? We you know if you have a house you have books you net flicks you consume with your friends like. They don't have any of the any stuff like that. Yeah so asking people in the homeless population to just completely self isolate. It's just it's not realistic. It's IT'S A. It's a complex issue that we need. Its own podcast. People who study this and there's an element of mental illness so called mental illness. Involved and then you've got You know sort of different types of quote unquote listening. It's a very complex issue independent of Cova and then when you introduce this factor It probably multiplies that affect the healthy streets Operation Center H. as in San Francisco They have Refocused efforts as part of this response to include things like not taking a removing tents Addressing criminal activity and encampments and on the streets keeping areas clean that includes regular street cleaning and power-washing collecting garbage from people living in tents ensuring that the sidewalks are kept cleaner Not allowing large war. Sorry to interrupt but kept clear not I mean that's and again like this isn't Crap on San Francisco. You know this is. This is a nationwide problem and these are sensible guidelines within the resources they have available but or keeping the sidewalks here. That's where a lot of people have to set up their tents many people. I'm sure of seeing the photos. Even if you don't live here in California but yeah please continue. No what did I say? Cleaner says younger. I just wanted to expulsion. No thank you. I've got sanitation on my hand. Washing songs stuck in my head But by the way if you're homeless good luck finding a place to wash your hands. Yeah Yeah No. These are all serious challenges for this community Other things are looking at not allowing large encampments meaning more than five tenths. I assume together Yeah here's the next issue. They're asking people to stay one person. Pretend and keep tents at least six feet apart and then another huge thing that you alluded to is just trying to educate people on Cova nineteen. This is not a population that's GonNa have a cell phone or the news plugged into their. You're listening to podcasts all day and things like that. So how you know. How can you go about educating them? On the issue as the pandemic is unfolding so the plan as of now in San Francisco has a between seven and eight thousand homeless and only about fifteen hundred shelter beds in the best of times is that they're going to try to house. People in all tells us a throughout the state of California. They're trying that but the cost of that is going to be at least as of the last. Look one hundred seventy nine dollars per night. So you're looking at two houses people for even ninety days. You're looking at tens of millions of dollars. Fema is going to try is in theory going to cover some of that in California overall This is from a a a April eleventh report from the San Jose Mercury News. A Gavin Nuisance Office. The Governor California said that Eight hundred eighteen hundred hotels or motel. Rooms are now occupied as a part of this joint effort project room key between the state counties and Fema and that the state is procured eighty seven hundred rooms and that's again noting that that's the number of homeless people just in San Francisco by themselves and there's a hundred and fifty thousand people overall homeless in California with one hundred eight thousand unsheltered and just think about all the logistical gymnastics. That are required to do this right. Okay some people may not even know due to substance dependence or mental illness may may not even be appropriate to put them in a hotel room. They need further care that There needs to be some kind of security. There needs to be some sort of nursing available and we can distinguish between homeless people who have tested positive or showing symptoms as opposed to not. Not This. If you're you've got people who are showing symptoms and needs somewhere isolate. That's a big part of what they're trying to accomplish here but they need physicians. Nurses case workers got it deliver food right because many. How are these people supposed to get food if you're homeless even if you're healthy? Many of them are dependent on donations. Or you know. They have to go into local shops to try to scrounge together. Something to eat. You know they're not supposed to be doing that now. So that makes things very difficult You Need P. p. e. for the hotel staff we're going to be cleaning these rooms and so all these logistics. Even though this was announced almost a month ago it takes a ton of time to get this in place. And how do you get people to these areas safely without overcrowding on say a bus you know they have they may have pets they may have personal belongings whereas all that going to go yeah. It's it's the logistical hurdles are insane. In a way it's a it's a microcosmic issue of opening certain sectors of the economy. Backup that you have to handle all of those logistical challenges including cleaning including protection of all the people involved transportation issues. And we've been speaking of this through a California centric Lens where we've got over one hundred thousand homeless folks but I mean the estimates just in the United States alone. We're talking about a population. Maybe half a million people so this is a this is a challenge to keep an eye on. Yeah I mean this is GonNa take money and vision and commitments and manpower. That doesn't exist right now to really solve this and we. We might want to get on this. Because we aren't reopening anything if the virus continues to rage through the homeless population right in the the most vulnerable elements of society the most vulnerable states and cities the most vulnerable countries in the world. If we don't solve this problem everywhere then we can't get back to. Normality open borders open. Economy all this stuff so if we didn't care about the homeless before We didn't enough in my opinion We better start carrying now because an outbreak in any community is really something that's going to prevent all of us from going back to our normal lives. Yep We'll said and important to keep in mind that that's a population that doesn't have advocates or champions necessarily they don't host podcast or things like that so whatever whatever we can do if that's something that you think is an area where resources and attention should go if you buy what nature said You know whatever we can do to to push that forward is going to help solve that problem because it is a very challenging and difficult problem to solve right now. It's good some good news Boris Johnson released from hospital. We'll call it hospital rather than the hospitals in the UK. Get your so your British pronunciation is down. We've had a pronunciation but my my Exurbia herbage yet. Anyway he's doing he's doing well now He's still not going to immediately return to work. That's the statement that the Prime Minister's office has put out of London and he wishes to thank everybody at Saint Thomas's for their brilliant care. All of his thoughts are with those affected by the illness. That was the statement that they released and then in the later video Boras did I personally Enjoyed this part really thanked for the life saving work. He thanked Jenny from New Zealand. And Lewis or Louis from Portugal. Yeah so he made it without having to put on a ventilator but a was receiving supplemental oxygen and was in the ICU. So he's a one of the good stories. What's the latest in Japan? Now Ben This is something that we've been monitoring it's it's another interesting test case. They did things a little differently. They did close schools. But Society as continued largely unabated at least compared to other countries. And so the hope was that they'd contain this but they weren't necessarily doing the large scale testing that South Korea had done and so I think it's Sweden is another one of these were. The kind of didn't totally lock everything down. But what's the latest now in Japan? Yeah we were pushing our luck asking for two consecutive positive stories because the issue in Japan now is the virus. Transmission seems to be growing enough that it's causing concerns and now prime minister. Shinzo Abe is finally declared a month-long state of emergency which is apparently the first time that's happened in Japan since their constitution came into effect in nineteen forty seven so that just puts into perspective the severity of things as we've discussed globally with this pandemic. He's asked citizens specifically to avoid bars and restaurants in the evenings right now. So not those full-scale lockdowns that we've seen in so many places but some of these earlier preliminary measures some of the measures as nate said earlier. That in places like in California. We may be took a few days before. The actual lockdown went into effect so not a full scale sort of shut down or quarantine asked or stay at home in Japan yet but potentially moving that way and just to put some color on this two weeks ago. Japan had not had a single day with two hundred and fifty new confirmed cases and now this is recording. Yesterday was the third day in a row with over five hundred new cases they actually at seven hundred and forty three new cases yesterday and we can look at some traffic.

"Those numbers are going to influence the range. And that's why you get something like between a million eight million actual infections. Yeah exactly and part of the reason I think for that range as well is just. We've seen the difference that even you know a few days delay in walking down 'cause if you wanted comparison California to New York. Yes example Well this is the power of exponential growth and also on that particular point. I've seen a lot of people a lot of Internet sloughs Comparing the date. The two states officially locked down. I don't know if you've seen this. Nate March twenty second for New York March nineteenth for California but the big cities in California. We're actually locked down about a week before that. I think in San Francisco. You guys were a couple of days before us in Los Angeles and we were March thirteenth in Los Angeles so a week or ten days or something can have huge compounding effects when we talk about exponential growth. Yeah and it did. Seem like the. The behaviors just trickled out into the general population. Even before the official lockdowns faster rate in the bay than Than they did in New York. So but that's why you're you're going to have this level of uncertainty and with many states many places Just having locked down relatively recently. You don't really know what the ultimate affected is going to be there and again to be clear what this is measuring is what experts think is the actual number of cases not the number of cases. That would be actually diagnosed via attest to as of that time. Other interesting thing out of this. These experts believed that there might be a little bit longer of a tail to the outbreak than is commonly being thought of a Lotta people including the government have talked about the government's of various states and cities have talked about. You know this is going to be the bad week. We're getting into the peak of the curve and these experts don't necessarily agree with that April May and June were each given more than a twenty percent chance of being the month for hospitalizations. I think that's usually a a pretty good. The number of hospitalizations at a given time is especially when we're talking about intially overwhelming healthcare services and leading to some of these negative outcomes that we're talking about in the previous segment that these experts at least seem to think that we could be a little bit further out for that now. Nobody really has any idea of what when we're actually going to reopen what the effect of that is going to be. What level of testing and contact tracing? We're GONNA have at that point so my guess would be that. That's where a lot of that uncertainty comes in. You know with these experts at forty two percent chance thinking that they're not gonNA peak a hospitalizations until after June first presumably. That's tied to the idea of some kind of reopening and relaxing restrictions. And having it not be done in the way that it needs to and having a another outbreak. I don't know about you. I would be surprised if we just. We maintain the same social distancing that we've had and then the outbreak still peaks in June. That seems like a little bit longer of period. I would expect unless there are some new reopening causing a second spike. I wonder if they're taking that and we know there's a lot of unknowns and moving targets to these kinds of projections but Thinking about a peak after June. I just recapping things. We've talked about on different episodes here. We know there's an incubation period. That can be over a week. Maybe two weeks that's pretty well established and then once you get into that hospital system after your symptoms and your actual Disease Kicking in on your illness kicking in you go into the hospital system you can be in there for a while so. I wonder I can understand where we were in the middle of April. Right now I can understand thinking. Hey at least a month away I do. I am kind of interested that June I would be. That's what six weeks away from where we are. Yup I wonder how much of that has to do with other cities only very recently or other states. Only very recently locking down because six weeks from the point of lockdown isn't too out of bounds with what we've seen in places like Europe so I I I don't know that's just speculation but I think for the places that have locked down to think all the way to June first does seem like if things are kept under wraps the way they are now That would that would require something else. Like maybe a second way I. I don't know I'm just spitballing here. Yeah no I mean. There's obviously a lot of reasons for uncertainty of. What did Doctor Fauci? I have to say about the We'll get your Italian. Chinese will do French. We'll all the names down before we're done with this project Doctor has said that quote unquote gradual rollbacks could begin next month that in May Just to quote him here. He said we're hoping at the end of the month. That would be the end of April. We can look around and say. Is there any any element here? We can safely and cautiously start pulling back on if so let's do it if not just continue to hunker down and he also noted that there's GonNa be a dependence on what the situation is in each area of the country and His quote was. It's not going to be a light switch. Yeah my thought on. This is what we better have testing and contact tracing totally straightened out to where experts really believed that we can. Do you know for example. Scott Gottlieb put out the figure of seven hundred. Fifty thousand tests said a week that you put out there. Oh where we are. Currently well no that he wants to get to the. That's what he believes. The key required capability would be per week. I think depending on how you do it it might even be higher right because I think it should be higher. Because Kim California alone was going for in the hundreds of millions of tests over a relatively short period right. Yeah so I mean but to me reopening in any substantial way you know maybe it's like okay. You can go see your friends at their house in a group of four. Who have walked. But even then you're really risking a lot in terms of people misinterpreting That into all right now you can go have a party with twenty people your friend's House and get these super spreading events again but to me if you don't really have the testing that is required and you reopen. Then you get into the situation where you could easily start having community transmission again and you don't know where people are getting the virus from. Who who they're passing it to and also I mean the other thing to me is better. Just not be having any more community transmission before. You're going to reopen as well because once more if you're the problem is with how difficult to detect this viruses if you're going to be having outbreak that you don't have a tough handle on very difficult to get that with this long incubation period and also within the long onset of symptoms it's It's going to be very difficult to safely reopen anything without that so And frankly I haven't really been convinced that we're on a path to getting that type of testing capability and contact tracing capability whether it's virtual or in person on the timeline. Where near the end of this month something like that anywhere will be ready to reopen. That's at least from what I've seen. Maybe they're doing more than I've seen but I'm I'm skeptical there. Well I think that's also why he's a little vague with these kinds of comments right. He's saying like if if certain things certain things what you know it was not going to be a light switch. So what is it going to be? We've talked about this a decent amount so we don't have to Belabor it but certainly you would need a plan and a certain amount of capacity with your infrastructure to succeed in implementing that plan and. I'm not sure exactly what those things are yet. One thing I'll add on this too is that I. I think I've seen this so much in the media it just in conversations that I'm having with people that I know everyone really wants to be optimistic. This sucks yet like we're we are looking for any way out of this whether it's certain cures vaccines the time. Line for the vaccine's being able to reopen again. Get back to normal all this economic pain that we're going through etcetera etcetera and I so desperately want that to be true. I'm trying to almost self-correct when I'm looking at stuff at this point to be like. Hey you know what like? Don't be too optimistic. If there is a story that is offering that things you know whether it's on the health front door economy a reopening. Whatever I'm trying to be doubly skeptical that because everyone has the incentive to peddle that narrative right now people desperately want to hear that they wanna hear good news. That's just how we are and so might vice you as you're reading? Sof hearing news reports. Whatever it is like just wait try. Try Not to get too excited about some of these things until they really become the consensus of the scientific community right. I mean we just we want to find one. Study out man. This could be it just. We're going to have to be patient. That's the nature of the sparse. It just takes too long In terms of some of these outcomes to really be making being conclusions about what's going to work and what's going to enable us to reopen right now a lot of these cases yeah and one more point on that the CDC had a study this week on transmission looking at ICU ICU's in hospitals and things like that and they basically found that. Hey maybe we should be looking at this thing as having a range of thirteen feet versus the recommended. Six feet It's getting all over your shoes. You're tracking places. It's all over the equipment and so even though we want to be optimistic to the conversation we just had. If you were to say let people go back over as we've discussed before in other episodes all that close transmission or being you know within a couple of feet of people spending a lot of time in their space. This is the kind of thing that potentially could open transmission rates back up and increase them. So there's A. There's a desire for that optimism. I think we all have but a certain amount of measured nece and prepared. This is probably what's ideal right now. Well here this story that we're about to talk about can totally counteract any optimism man I'M GONNA Use San Francisco as a lens to talk about this issue but obviously it's one that really hits home and a lot of areas of the country and that is the issue of cove nineteen and the homeless population which the the homeless issues that we've had a particularly in the bay but many other places as well. I really a national shame. At least as far as I'm concerned and now we're going to have to confront some of these issues because once again I mean we're kind of both on a national scale in terms and even a worldwide scale. We can only go back to normal when this is contained everywhere and the homeless population has been overlooked for a long time. But I think one of the biggest fears when we first found out about this is how this is going to devastate the homeless population. And we're starting to see that now. In San Francisco there are now seventy cases in a homeless shelter. That has three hundred sixty eight residents as loosely as you can use that term. Unfortunately and two staffers in that showing you the explosive potential when a quarter of the people in the shelter are testing positive. And you would imagine. They're probably more cases incubating at this point. There are a couple of cases they tested everyone in it and found out that there were seventy who tested positive and let's keep in mind too that false negative issue if you've got thirty percent false negative you're testing that whole population and they're all at at risk. The number is probably going to be even higher than that. So the question that California's been grappling with other governments reme- grappling with is. How do you take care of the homeless population? I mean it's almost like Ben is the only way I can come up with for dealing with that. Are almost basically you have to deal with the issue of homeless itself? Yeah Yeah Yeah I mean if we go back a couple of weeks and this was something that's been on the radar especially here in California. Where in our major cities you're up in the bay down here in Los Angeles. We have large homeless populations. Unfortunately and governor newsome had talked about plans to open up hotels to provide aid for those services and then to your point to me. I had the exact same reaction which is wow. You really have to look at tackling the entire issue even if just in the short term which gets a little bizarre for me. But you know you have to say to handle this In the way that is probably the safest for them and everybody involved. You almost have to tackle the entire thing itself. Which is you know providing shelter providing care providing services providing food all the sort of peripheral things that go with that and all the resources that go with that absolutely and even just putting everyone together in a shelter wall. That's not going to help you reduce the number of cases and I. It's important to really try to and I'm lucky enough to never been in the situation but to the extent that we can really think about what it is like for a homeless person in this crisis. Right I mean I. It comes out the shelter in place. Order comes out and you know. That's certainly a bitter joke. Hall of these guidelines for people even communicating that to them is going to be something. That's really is going to take some outreach. You know many homeless people don't have a phone where they're looking at the news every day for example Or a TV to to see the latest news and you say you stop congregating and art will. Is that realistic? Just stay in your tent all day and don't talk to anyone. I mean the only solace that many people these interacting with other people within this vulnerable.

"We'll we'll have a couple of pretty big topics and then we'll do a a news Rhonda from the US and around the world. What have you been monitoring the most here since we last talked? But I think the story that or the topic that we want to kick off today with was this concept of all cause mortality the actual reporting numbers coming out from different countries cities municipalities on All deaths that have taken place since the pandemic has really started to hit some of these areas and the idea of that as a measuring. Stick something to monitor and sort of what it what it means in the long term and in the short term going forward as we monitor this yet. I think it's important to remember that. From on the federal level there aren't really procedures For reporting here in the US states that have different measures. And we've seen that for that invaluable Cova Tracking Project that various states are are tracking various things and there are procedures. Obviously if someone dies in a hospital to determine a cause of death but those systems like everything else that saw healthcare related deaths related right. A lot of barriers is overwhelmed so we may see some of these indicators lag we may see some stuff not get characterizes coverted related and then there's also the issue while how many other deaths are there because the healthcare system. It may be overwhelmed. That's a another major concern is. Are you gonNA count someone who can't get the same level of care after having a heart attack at home and ends up dying ways? That covert nineteen related. Those some of the issues that we're going to be struggling with here. Yeah and I think that as a single measurement. It's probably the best tool we're going to end up. Having in terms of saying what was the impact what was what was the impact on death toll. You know there's a secondary impacts. There's hospital the psychological impacts financial impacts but especially as things are unfolding as you just pointed out a we know that a lot of fatalities and a lot of different places in the world are going untracked and so being able to have some of this data come in is going to at least give us a slightly more accurate benchmark for measuring stick to track these things well and one other thing. That's a a little bit annoying about this is that there is an incentive for under counting. Here I think and we saw it in China. I think they're clear. Was An incentive there to undercount in terms of cases for example the Samat cases and reports that under counting may have occurred in Wuhan. Perhaps do these same factors that you're talking about is even if you have the purest of hearts it still difficult to determine exit with especially in this chaotic environment. That we're in right now whether it death is code related or not but all of these stats are political. Footballs right now and a lot of politicians are going to be judged rightly or wrongly. Well how did your area do in this outbreak? Rather the ones who are able to keep it down. They're going to get credit. The ones who weren't are going to blame and that's a sad reality of this. We'd hope that in our more open society than say China We're GONNA do a better job in the truth is going to merge but it is always important to remember what are the incentives of the people who are working with this data and reporting it to us when we don't necessarily have other ways of getting it and even regardless of incentives just the fact that there isn't a standard boilerplate practice around the world or even even from state to state in the United States in terms of how to handle yes. It's it's understandable and easy to have the same practice. If someone comes into hospital they check a box by tech checking checking the box by testing positive with a mouthful for me. They test positive. And then Go into the system that way. That's easy but You know for instance nursing homes so NBC. Had A report coming out saying that there were Now twenty five hundred long care facilities in thirty six states that are battling corona virus and a number of them are on reported. Some states don't have practices to even get these into the official systems so in those nursing homes they already tracked down something like twenty two years. The exact figure two thousand two hundred and forty six deaths. But they're saying that is going to be an undercount because a number of states said they couldn't even provide data or they declined to provide data. So we don't have that Standardization across the board and as this is unfolding. That's going to make keeping track of these things very difficult and so one thing you can do. There is a point to the all cause mortality. Did you have a comment? You want to jump in. We do just that this is NBC News. Basically doing their own legwork to come up with these stats right. Yeah yeah a lot of Legwork to do that and reaching out to different states in different departments to try to accumulate all of these numbers and you know a number of states didn't even get back to them. Yeah and so obviously I mean. Those numbers are quite sobering in nursing homes. When you're looking at a those twenty five hundred long term care facilities that have corona virus cases and we've seen the explosive growth that this can have a throughout the nursing home and long term care facilities and another point from NBC New York Can't remember if we I think it broke after we recorded our last episode but they've found a spike in cardiac arrest deaths in the home. Here's the quote between March twentieth and April Fifth The department recorded nearly two thousand two hundred cardiac arrest deaths at home compared to four hundred fifty over the same period in the last year. Theoretically those aren't deaths that are being told as part of this story right now and so if you look at things like all cause mortality. It's probably going to be a better way to gauge the impact Not just as as you said not just directly but also indirectly because you know. How do you account for healthcare system being overloaded and someone who normally would get treatment? That can't get treatment a one where you can compare it is to say look at the period last year period this year yet and those numbers are going to be pretty ugly going back quickly to that cardiac arrest issue in New York. What I thought was crazy about it is. What is the reason why that number's going up? Right you pipes is well. It's because they're either aren't enough ambulances that can come quickly or there aren't enough treatment resources at hospitals and so the first five days of April more than seventy percent of cardiac arrest calls ended any pronunciation of death and the article doesn't say what that number normally is but it says that the numbers are dramatically higher across the board number of calls number of deaths and the percentage of such calls that end in death. So I mean this. This is an example of exactly what we're talking about which could play out elsewhere in the country at Detroit was another metro area that it has been overwhelmed in New Orleans. And so you would expect you know like darn it up able ince's to take all the code nineteen patients in and then you know usually you might be able to get an ambulance somewhere in fifteen minutes twenty minutes or so and you can get so a hospital quickly enough after a cardiac episode. They arrive in that unfortunately seems to be happening a lot less now at least in. New York based on these stats. Yeah and some of them of course could be coverted related themselves. You know. There's there's a lot going on there in terms of two five time increase. What was it about four hundred and fifty normally two thousand two hundred so Some more data on this a Forbes study tried to look at all cause mortality in the European places that have released some of this data so for instance. The Italian government will release some of this data. They looked at the hardest hit regions and concluded that on top of four thousand eight hundred official deaths in this region. In Italy there were four thousand. Two hundred more unexplained deaths meaning if we look at the number of deaths last year and compare it to the same period where Cova has sort of struck in the last month or so here in Italy. There's nine thousand additional deaths but only forty eight hundred are cove related. Yes so I mean the and it seems like it as they go through Portugal France that the UK. You're seeing as much as double the number of official Cova deaths. In terms of these unexplained deaths Portugal three hundred eleven cova deaths and this is just within the scope of this study Through Eleven Cova deaths but just under eleven hundred overall. So that's another two hundred percent more than the official Cova de you're above that France. Eight hundred sixty official COVA DHS within the core of the study and twenty five hundred overall the UK hundred to Cova deaths two hundred forty eight quote unquote Above normal overall. So this is again an indication that while whether these are directly related to cove it or not the least second hand effects I guess you could say is leading to increases the deaths of teams like as much as two hundred percent over what the official numbers are in this study. Where do you want to go next? I think we can just take a look to check in on the overall numbers in the USA per that. Essential Kobe tracking project. Five hundred twenty two thousand positive tests through Saturday we've crossed over now twenty thousand deaths here in the US again. Those are ones directly attributed to the virus. Also want to check in again on a tracking survey that five threes highlighting actually by Thomas mcandrew and Nicholas Reich where they bring together a number of experts and get their predictions mcandrew is out of the University of Massachusetts Amherst. And so again the idea. The idea here is that they're they're trying to create that wisdom of the crowds effect by pooling experts and then basically averaging what their estimates are to get an idea of Not just where we're going but maybe even things like current case counts right. Yeah exactly and the hope is that this is the wisdom of a wise crowd and not just a a crowd of Becau- because these are all require your field experts that's required for the crowd to be wise. Yes so so. Yeah go ahead. These Were conducted April sixth through seventh and the belief was that as of April fifth. There were a week ago now. They're a total of two point five million actual infections. Now we've had as mentioned five hundred twenty two thousand positive tests as of April eleventh but the idea being that there may be a symptomatic cases. There may be cases where people are pre-symptomatic having gotten tests yet etc so that was the consensus with a range of nine hundred. Eighty six thousand to eight million as of April Fifth They thought so And of course in this case we also have the issue of under testing right so so we know that our testing capacity is still sort of only hitting people in certain demographics and with certain symptoms as of today are positive. Tests percentage is actually going up slightly meaning having a tough time chasing down the growth so about twenty two percent. According to the one of the tracking studies about twenty two percent of our positive tests are test. Coming back positive. And you want that number like for for comparison Korea South Korea They get about two to three percent of their tests coming back positive because they're trying to you know test people who just had contact with someone so all..

"Just like it completely so Aron Baynes then. Aaron Aaron Bain stepping over to take a super dangerous charge in a blowout. But I mean you you. You've followed close because you live around here like the really kind of wrong expectations that this team was under that. Steve Kerr was member very loudly. Trying to tell the media that they weren't going to be very good at least at the end of the season and the Steph breaking his hand it just it just seemed to ease the entire franchise knowing. They're not going to go. Try to chase it under and the season and coming off five files runs. And just like the fatigue of the entire franchise from like being under the constant microscope and really capped off by what was one of the most dramatic finals. The end of that finals run that went you know. Katie Achilles tear game five to the clay acl tear and just everything that went into the end of the durant era like in a strange way. When when Steph Rocca San I mean there was like obviously like sadness for Steph personally but it like I I would tell people during the season you have never go to these cities like man. How is it wow you know? They're they're nine in forty two. It's like they're great mood. This is a franchise and a great move as a teaching environment. You've never seen a happier lottery team. And it's you know a lot of job security you know. Usually you're the belief that it's temporary. Yes believe. It's separate which comes with job security. 'cause you know the belief is you know usually a situation like this. The coaches thing. He's going to get fired maybe the GM and him are like Kinda backstabbing each other. There was none of that And I think some of that was the curry injury took it even had to. May Joe Lake will have to sit there and go. You know what playoffs aren't going to happen this year and for that to happen was probably important. Artists Aaron Baynes t t MVP. If I if are being serious I I would go with impact. It's probably between Pasco Glen Robinson and Alec burks. Why two guys who didn't or maybe actually no. You don't want deviant. We might actually be it to me. I think they're much better. When he was out there. I would go Pasco. Yeah probably does that to be Wrote ROTATION PLAYER. Who struggled the most no no shortage of candidates? No there aren't I will go with a guy we haven't talked about and we probably should Jordan Pool Rookie twenty eighth overall. Pick first rounder. Comes with all doesn't come with the expectations of the first runner. They're about to get but You know he would have been out of the rotation on a normal warriors team but he was Kinda shoved into it and I don't know if you can get his stats up month by month. But like he was historically bad from an efficiency standpoint the for like really yep through December. I think there's a month it might have been. December might have been November where he think he made like one. Shot the whole month Like his two point percents twentieth at one point. Yeah it was I mean. It was like uncomfortably bad for a while and like you could tell even the coaching staff l. Bad like man they would love to get him in the G. League. They would love to really again on a normal team that wasn't and we've talked about. Seth's injury. The like the entire team was injured for for chunks of the season where they would be playing with like you know seven guys only to bench players like Jordan they kept having to run Jordan pull out there against NBA Guards. Who were just eating them up and eventually they got enough guys back and they they did send to the G. League and he did recover and he had and they When they traded Evans and Russell at the deadline they gave him the ball more and he does seem to be more of like maybe a backup point guard type stuff so there were some flashes late but he really kind of had a battery rookie season. Got A couple of stats here for you. Actually this is. This is a little bit of an anti quitter but Michael Moulder head a plus six point two net rating in two hundred four minutes and does the only plus guy on their raw. How dare you give short shrift to Jeremy Cargo who had a plus two point four her net rating in forty? Four minutes Yeah it was It was a rough seas forever. One I would have to probably GO JACOB EVANS WHO YEAH. I guess I forgot about him because he's been traded in these now kind of on the wool. Thank God Nice Guy Yes yes but not an NBA basketball player. I think at this point Are We talked about pretty much? All the young players already of note. Who Do you expect to be a key player on this team in two years? So that's after the summer. Twenty-one start of the twenty one twenty two season well let me pull up their Rosser in. We can pretty much go through. I think they're starting lineup. Barring a big chess piece that they somehow find the summer with the seventeen point. Two million dollar. Trade exception is in place. So that's obviously Steph. Clay Andrew Wiggins Draymond Green. Marcus Chris I think that's their starting five on opening night For for next year. Yeah Yeah but but you're but what about two years from now? Okay I I would guess that the four main cogs right there. The four highly paid guys. Who ARE ALL UNDER CONTRACT PASS? Next season still are there. I don't think they're going to trade wiggins just because I don't think they're gonNA be able to swing the home run that they would need to So those four actually Chris though you know again depends on who they draft I? I think that's very influential. Yeah they would hope that whoever they draft is GonNa be a starter going into a second year. Yeah for sure So whoever that is I think Chris will be around. I think they like him. I think the organizational fit is good. Paschal obviously Beyond that I mean Alan Smile. Each is a guy who just got his first mentioned the entire podcast. I don't I'm not sure I see it. But he is under contract. They signed in real time going to predict that he will be waived a before after the before. The twenty one twenty two season starts. Yes I I would probably agree. Maybe a better question is just. Who Do you expect to still be on the team next year? Maybe yeah I mean I mean I would just say once I mentioned that starting five Paschal to music guarantee at six and then beyond that we can really kinda start having discussions on if any guys will be around at all. I bohm in. I don't really think so Damian Lee I we had the discussion about why Kevon Looney I mean he is. He's under contract for two more years including a player option on that one after I could see him become. Maybe even a trade peace as soon as the summer. Yeah Yeah especially if the maybe they could I mean they have still other of their own future first round picks that they could potentially trade and maybe attaching one of those to him. Get back a player who can play. Use Him as salary balanced it may. Maybe that player is a center So lesson here. Give me one word to describe. This team's season vacation It really you know. The work was done by particularly like the coaching staff in the young players but overall I mean it was such a gap year vacation that I mean for some players Klay Thompson. It literally wasn't occasion they would on the road trip. And you'd be like Oh. Here's a picture of clay with his girlfriend in Bali or they're in Kabul this weekend So their main guys staff would stay home for a lot of roaches particularly when like the hand was in a bad place before it started recovering. A bit better Draymond you know there would be. He would particularly by the end of the season. He would just sit for a little stretches with minor injuries Again long term. I think it was the right play. Rest the bodies rest the minds Don't stress about losing games. I mean like they were frustrated particularly when they will get blown out and Steve. Kerr had his press post-game moments where you could tell the losses were getting to him but overall I mean considering the stress that they just got off with the whole durant era and that five year finals run. This felt like just cake and it was gonNA lead into an April fifteenth vacation now. Everyone's summer plans are absolutely thrown up in the air but I think it was a unnecessary vacation. I would say my word would be lucky. Lucky that they're gonNA have this draft. Pick lucky that they were able to replenish the assets. Develop these young players who probably wouldn't have been able to develop in. Other circumstances churned through these roster spots. Save Joe Lak- some money for next year I mean if they if they just muddled law into a forty two win season this year I think they. Maybe they don't Trade Russell as well 'cause they're like trying to make the playoffs or something. I think they The overall got lucky that this happened to them because otherwise they really would be having much more muddled future. Maybe the cavs going to say. Can I attach something to your point? Yeah I mean and this is this is GonNa long be known as the incomplete season two because of what's going on you know globally right now and this could have been if this if what is going on right now was dropped. During one of the Warriors Dynasty run season you might have ripped title away from them like Lebron is probably forever going to believe or Jaanus the Bucks. Whoever the clippers like one of these teams had a title ripped from them. The warriors didn't whereas again like if any if this happened in past years they would have believed that they had a title taken away from. Yeah I still have hope that we'll have some kind of up layoffs but that's always going to have an ashtray right. I mean however this goes down. It's going to be like if the Lakers don't win it. You think Lebron's going to be like you know that was a legitimate playoffs that we just went through with an empty Jim in Vegas. Yeah I mean I don't know I just want the best ball to watch and I think people watch it and that's what matters much more than Oh is. Is this going to measure up as much historically as as other titles It's still it's still basketball to watching analyzing Distract us from our woes here but Thanks again for joining.

"Quip the Good Habits Company and get that /capspace Came FROM US. Our biggest positive surprise to you. This season Paskal We've already kind of disgusted. Some but you know we're talking about the forty first overall pick Who dropped in the draft? I remember I was looking at all these options at twenty eight for the warriors. Twenty eight options for the words that the twenty th pick. I wanted to do that many of this year. It'll be like third pick or something but Pasco was among the twenty eight And Jordan Pool wasn't Jordan Pool. They ended up. Getting Twenty eight was projected to go around you know mid forties so it was a disappointment draft night. Wise that passed fell that far in summer league you saw a little bit of a flash is where it's like you know. I think they got a guy that can maybe help on the very edge of the rotation in small ways and then right away really Maybe I shouldn't say right away really after the curry injury where they just completely reexamined what the team was supposed to be without steph curry on the floor. Suddenly they were like giving him the ball. Paschal the ball in isolation and he came there go to score and it was like man out of the draft even when anyone was doing draft. Prep it was like you would get these like draymond comparisons of like undersized bulky four man that can kind of be glue guy on a team and you thought well. He'll help them defensively but he's just his best goes like `isolation like volleyball scoring and he had like thirty point nights and he like his breakout moment was that it was their first win at Shea Center ever where he dominated the blazers I think he finished with thirty four And he's just like I mean to me by four the big surprise positively of the season. Oh absolutely and then it seemed like teams caught up to him through the middle of the season where he going left every time he was getting. A ton of charges uses a problem for him in college as well and it seemed like he was getting frustrated getting into foul trouble a lot but then the last month or so. It seemed like the game. Slow down for him a lot. I thought this is big especially for players who are really strong. That just trust your strength. Don't feel like you have to go. You know a thousand miles an hour every time to go through guys that you can just knock them backwards even while staying under control and not picking up offensive fouls so I think he started to learn that a little bit. His passing came around as while he was very much a one track. Mind as a score. That's part of why he had so many turnovers also so And then his finishing. I thought it was pretty good. Defensively you know. He's not a huge playmaker. But another guy who can just be out there and hold up and not necessarily get attacked has some ability to switch the I. I liked him I would say actually of all the other players that they had their two others that I think who were still on the team at the end of the year that I really looked as potential contributes for one of Michael Moldy. I was GONNA say Michael moulder about to get a shoutout but that's not. Let's not jump the gun here. Talk About Daily I. He's he's more important. Sure is six hundred thousand guaranteed for next season. Yeah but but I thought about you but I thought he really was the one player who still understood how wanted to play out there a lot of times. I think he's GonNa fit in really well with His brother-in-law Steph curry and Draymond and the whole system wants to get back up and running. I think the biggest thing with him that you could tell compared to some of his teammates who were not successful this season as his age. Twenty seven I know. He was viewed as part of this. Like young conglomerate of players trying to Fi- find their footing in the NBA. And he is trying to do that you know. He is very much on the fridge. They started the season two way deal but he is a much more veteran player. I mean again. Twenty seven years old different life experience. Super Smart Player understands the system very well as very bought in hustles. At All Times. He had some random big rebounding nights. And we're not talking about like a monster of guard. He just knows how to play minute. Really stuck out this year with a bunch of guys who didn't yeah for sure and yeah to me. He's like Klay Insurance Were Klay Thompson next? Season will probably not play eighty two games. You know what we're talking. What Sixty Games is probably wise for clay? Talk Next Season Damian Lee if if the warriors stack their rotation a little bit with the financial tools that they have this summer and Klay Thompson is back and they have a full. Rotation daily may get a D. N. P. But if Klay Thompson is getting limited minutes or if the rotation isn't as you know thick as they want it to be entering next season David Lee will have a bigger role and he will be so accepting of whatever will gets which matters you know with your twelfth man. Yeah I think he can be more than that Because he can shoot. He knows how to cut. He can pass and a pretty decent transition player as well at least knows where to be defensively. Certainly in the regular season just to get reliable shooting around this group is going to be massive. They the even going back to the dynasty years. They didn't have that those last couple of years. Now there could be an argument. David Lee should have been on the playoff roster instead of like your ABC over somebody you know seasons ago yeah because then maybe doctrine one by nick nurse doesn't work as well but yeah and I don't know how well he's GonNa hold up in the playoffs. That's the reason he wasn't on the playoff roster as a defensive player but You know at least just having someone that you know can be out there and has to get guarded won't be a liability offense way. I think is bigger than you alluded to it. Michael Molter is the other one who I was very impressed by. He took over nine three-point attempts per thirty six minutes. Thirty one percent of them but he's known as a shooter is G. League shooting stats were outstanding. It a truncated career at Kentucky Left there is a twenty two year old. He was in the Miami Heat G. League system where signed him out of there and he played so well in his first day that they didn't even give another ten today. They're just signed. Yes so the warriors had this interesting situation at the trade deadline where they just they had a roster purge they they traded off Glen Robinson and Alec burks brought nothing back They traded away Russell and when they did the Russell for Wigan swap they added Jacob Evans in Omar experiment into the deal deduct the tax and suddenly on deadline day. When all the dust was settled they had like six open roster spots and. I'm surprised you didn't mention. Your Guy. Wants to Scotto Anderson as one of the guys that impressed but he was one of multiple guys they were just shuffling through in the in the last three four weeks before the regular season ended that they must I mean I could add them up but Jeremy PARCO and dragging bender was Enron a couple of ten days and They just were really and they would have kept going until the end of the regular season they just get your chest and Randall was in there. and moulders. The one guy they found with this random ability to just shuffle. A bunch of guys in I I remember the game. He really to me one. His roster spot fulltime was in Phoenix. Actually one and he at some point in like second quarter like went up to like draymond. Steve Kerr on the bengals. Like I want. Devon Booker. Let Me Guard Devon Booker and like dream on Steve. Kerr like for the next week or two. We're like talking about how much that impressed them. That this guy is a ten day like demanded to guard Booker. Agai attendant who they brought in really only because he led the league in made threes. They'd had no clue if he was any type of defender. And I'm not saying he's like a guy. That's GonNa Lock Devon Booker Up. They just love the mentality of like. I'M GONNA. I think I can and I think he oppressed him a little bit athletically and he can shoot. It can get really hot. He really chucks. That was the one thing he led the League in attempts to which you know on this roster that's had the Macaws in the past and own recast is guys that are kind of hesitant around clay staffed even throw the shot up because hey why am. I taking a shot away from Stephanie. Klee they wanted. I think they want a guy that that's kind of a little bit of a chucker coming off the bench. I think is future can be okay. We'll see how well he holds up defensively in the shots go in the NBA level. But I didn't see he didn't look like overwhelmed out there physically. He looked like he could be at at minimum a shooter. You know another thing that I've been told they loved. He came from Miami System. You know and that's always been a very good developmental kind of militaristic style you know even even to the G. League team which is where they got him and I mean you could kind of see that Miami he mentality. I mean in really good when he came in very professional. Who Do these? You Know Post game pressures which warriors PR will be you know. They'll put ten day guys on in press conference settings and he was just like making sure to thank every reporter. Hey glad to meet you. You know that type of stuff and it was like okay. This is a business guy. Yeah I I'm not around enough for for talk to me God I was just thinking about it now like you remember when people were like. Oh yeah you know if we're GONNA protect the players by just having him six feet back from the reporters and we'll be able to go on this as usual? Hey they did that one game. I remember they set up a makeshift press conference outside the visiting locker room and Chase Center for that. Yeah but like just the other naievety that like Oh yeah this. This will enable us to going. No actually our our entire economy is going to be. It's going to be shut down week here so no this. This may not be enough. Why one one regret is I kinda wanted to see that nets warriors game that was going to go with no fans but yeah truth is the nets also had multiple guys You know that had corona virus. Oh yes that's your. This'll be hilarious team. Mvp for this season. Oh Man This is I think this is the hardest wanted for Is the first one we're doing. This is GonNa be the hardest one in the whole League You could make. I could probably to arguments. I mean like if we're just like talking about who was their best player probably Paschal in the winds that mattered. The most. You know like if you think about their most memorable wins and they didn't have many Pasco was typically like the guy that shine the most particularly those early season winds yet. He did leave the team in minutes. Sixteen hundred fifty four minutes started only twenty six out of sixty games. I is it possible. It's Diangelo Russel. Probably not right now. We're at any better with him. On the floor only played a thousand minutes for the Warriors Amazingly enough. We add thirty three games. He missed a lot of games in. I mean this is gonna sound kind of demented. But I think steph curry breaking his hand.

"He came off the bench. You look at his minute. Totals never over twenty. It was like fifteen minutes seventeen minutes sixteen minutes eighteen minutes but I do think that that little sample for him. Going into the summer parabas really Kind of you know reaffirmed him you know. Hey his legs are there. He's you know Klay Thompson just didn't get that So his first competitive NBA game. Sure he'll get some preseason which will matter and we'll we'll watch that closely but like you opening night next season as the warriors. Try to you know reboot themselves. Back into contention we'll be Klay Thompson first real. Nba game sits in ACL tear. It's going to. It's a little porzingus like I think particularly if they move this Start of the season back to Christmas. As been kind of rumored as a possibility. I believe that'll be Twenty months or something like eighteen nineteen twenty yards from the you know the last time he played so like he's the biggest like either him or dream. I think we could argue. Wanted to because dream on didn't take a year off injury wise but as we've talked about kind of took a year off So just can those to be fringe. All Star still is probably the biggest decider on. Is this team a title contender or not? Yeah I mean that's really what it boils down to all this other stuff like. Who can they pick up with the trade exception? Who are they going to draft unless they trade for another superstar? If steph curry draymond green and Klay Thompson are anything. Close to the guys that they have been in the playoffs previously then. This team is a title contender. Otherwise they're not I. Yeah let me like. I want you to rank those. I'm lease worried about Steph. And I think you even though he's old but I'm less worried about Steph. Where you onto three? Are you more worried about dream on getting back to level or Klay often? Aco probably still dream on in both of them. I have a substantial concerns But yeah I mean Draymond as an undersized thirty-one-year-old power forward now we've seen like PJ Tucker continue to be effective with similar build and probably worse physical tools going into your age thirty four thirty five although worth noting that Tucker has the corner. Three that dream on doesn't have You know that's a big part of it. He can space out at least teams are worried about him hitting corner threes. But Yeah I think you know defense way. I think he can do enough. And but a big question too is you know. Is He enough of a threat with the ball where he can push it down and at least draw the defense enough or they're worried about him finishing a layup or You know doing those fake Diego's in Kenya. The Rim like Kenney still provide even the slightest amount of scoring that's That's question for me but clay too. I I think you know. He's going to be in his early thirties. You just you never know coming off of this type of injury He certainly has the profile of a player with his shot in size. Who can whether the ACL tear a lot? But he's never the most athletic guy either. So it's I think defensively in particular. I would expect to step back from him. Yeah you when you look at like. Acl Recovery's usually like the twenty month. Twenty one month to like about twenty four month two year mark is where you really see guys start to maybe look like their old selves. Although a lot of these guys that we look at historically may have torn it when they were twenty four twenty five and came back. Twenty six ish. Clay like you said is now entering his thirties. But you know next year's playoffs which is when you know you really need him back to in Clay Klay Thompson. We'll be about twenty two months post injury so it's conceivable he could you know he's a hard worker too? I mean there's a reason why Klay Thompson Workhorse. Eighty two games per year type guy. So you know he's been working at it yet. I think another thing. We could say a question. In general one. Is IT Steve? Kerr's coaching and like can his offensive system. Run when you don't have the two two of the greatest shooters of all time in it. You know they were thirtieth offense this year and I don't know that they're the talent that they had with necessarily Said they should be that terrible. Well what's interesting about that? Is that is a question that. Steve Kerr. I think we'll eventually have to show but the truth is he's like this franchises relying upon those two to be out there so as you look towards next season in the next few seasons like. I'm not sure that's a question that has to be answered. You know if you play yourself aren't out there there Donna playoff team. You know we can answer that question already so That's more of a like next decade. Like Steve Kerr going to have a Gregg Popovich like run with the warriors. Were just same guy you can roll in different style of Popovich over the years I know. Obviously Tim Duncan and Ginobili in Parker like his mainstays but he's really flipped their style of play. And Steve. Kerr is very much a popovich. Meant or whatever you call it and Will he be able to adjust themselves? But I don't think that's an answer. We start to get until like Klay and Steph really aged out. Yeah no I I suppose right. Hopefully they'll they'll be back so biggest positive here actually. Let's do one more quick break We'll get to. The Pool is one habit of mine that hasn't changed through everything. We've been going through here. And that.

"Disaster health season which included Neuropathy hamstring issues abby shoes. He just clear the body could never get right And he still under that contract. But I think it's pretty clear to the franchise as of now. They can't plan on him being like a really big part of the future so that they've learned that They learned that. Will you call? It wasn't a fit so they traded away his contract which you know he had a player option for this next season and they found markey's Chris kind of in the rubble. And I think archies. Chris is your projected starting center for next season. Now that draft can change that you know if James Wiseman or somebody comes in the conversation shifts but they will to me. They've learned about their future their center spot which they don't really prioritize. Eitan financially but you still want reliable option and they seem to believe Marquees. Chris is a young developmental reliable option. We'll see but that's learned I on Chris. Real quickly I'm not as high on him as they are. You know they've no reason publicly not to just pump up their young players good. Pr Just. There's no reason not to do that but to me it's just too bad. Defensively is under size. Doesn't have the greatest of lateral mobility doesn't have the greatest helpings they'll get some spectacular blocks or now and then put conventional pick and roll defence. He can't really play that You know not the greatest switch guy. I think he's a solid offensive center. But I think he's a at best a backup center that you deploy very sparingly against the right match up and maybe not in the maybe he can improve to get there but I I wouldn't WanNa be counting on him as my starting. Yeah run a good team next year. They need to supplement hint. You know they need to get a good veteran somewhere whether that is you know if they could somehow squeeze marcus soul in until like a taxpayer mid level then suddenly he's your starter and Chris is what you are saying. He should be if they can't do that. They should at least get a semi reliable backup behind him. But also you peer into the future another thing. They learned his draymond. Green still cannot shoot And that's become like almost a guarantee that he's not really gonNA shoot well so he's GonNa play a lot more center. I think moving forward especially because again another thing they learned with Paschal. He's a solid four-man. So they're going to try to fit those two in the same lineup together that that could mean that you know we need is probably start talking more about draymond green as Santer. Maybe moving forward. Yeah and maybe also especially if Paschal can emerge maybe they play Draymond at center but he's also not playing thirty eight minutes a game next year during the regular season. I mean I guess one good thing is that they avoided basically an entire season wear and tear on Draymond as well but I mean those shooting numbers for him were grizzly. Thirty six out of one twenty nine from three twenty eight percent. He shot thirty nine percent overall from the field. And that's not exactly like you know. A diet of what would be difficult attempts for normal players. It's so this was early. In the season that Steph. It broke in the hand they were. I don't know I can't remember the record at this point. They're they're probably something like three and eleven and it was very clear they were just crashing towards the lottery. They had given up on the playoff. Hope they knew stuff was going to be out a while And and the bigger you know. There's kind of a story emerging around the team like what is this season supposed to be for dream on And I br we're in New Orleans after practice day and we went into like he he was doing the Cold Tub after practice. He's I guess sure I'll give you thirty minute interview. Whatever and part of the interview was like know. What is the season for you? You're a guy who's like always one your entire life and you're about to be on probably you know one of the top three worst seems in basketball and he was like. I just got refined. My shot like that was like his one goal. This season he was just GonNa work on the corner three spot after practice like he was he was really gonNa try not to care about wins and losses at all which he kind of didn't this season but he was gonna try to refund the shot and he just didn't so that like to me. That was the failure of the season. And that's just the the warriors need to forecast that into the future like draymond. Green is not a three point shooter. Yeah and obviously when you're playing with stepping clammy. I think another lesson I mean he'll look a lot better with those guys but another lesson is that Draymond at least at this point in his career really needs to be I think he can still be a factor but he really needs to be in the right lineups in the right system to have that effectively wasn't exactly like you know making a great defense by himself either this year though the effort level. Isn't that high? So maybe they've got to think of him more as just like well. Let's hope he's a playoff player. Unfortunately we're not going to know whether he can still bring in the playoffs until next year. And he he will already turned thirty one. We'll be on the first year of a four year hundred million dollar extension. That's about to kick in and you know we mentioned Paschal. The Pasco was a lot better with draymond off the floor this year and that that is a concern just up together you want to know another thing we learned the Russell fit did not work. I mean that was a big thing. We learned probably. Yeah Yeah that was I. I was going to make sure we brought that one up the bet. That might be a player too. I think is pretty big And I think he can play together if they have. You know the two British shooters of all time or close to it playing with both those guys swelter GonNa look a lot different. Paschal in particular his finishing it is going to be a major weapon. I think I mean he can really almost play the center position. That dunker spot gets alleyoop. Like he's I think he can work together offensively. If you you've got both of those shooters out there Anything else the maybe even some small things. I mean not just hijacked this from you in Indiana more. Ask You about it. But you know I mentioned the Russell for Wigan swap which to me is kind of the probably the story of the season I mean. Can you go back to last summer? It was pretty monumental decision from the franchise to not just let Kevin Durant walk. But to Trade Andrea Gwendal reshape the roster young behind him and give deal Russell. This Max deal that hard cap them which you know really changed so a lot of their decision making this season and they obviously pull the plug on that in February For Andrew Wiggins they get his contract. I mentioned the pick but like we're too like where are you at on that deal? Now that you've kind of we've all been allowed some time to sit back. Maybe look at the wiggins fit a little bit kind of examine Russell's flaws think about the pick swaps that were all involved like like. Where are you at on that? So my initial thought was. Is it easier to trade for a stoop superstar with de Ngelo Russell? And this their upcoming number-one pick or is it easier to trade for a superstar with that number one pick wiggins and the wolves pick. I do agree with you. I think they are slightly better with wiggins than they are with Russell Spice small forward. I mean that's probably the biggest quality I mean position. I mean I don't know that wiggins was that substantially different in golden state. Maybe hill have an awakening on a good team. I'm not sure I mean the three Boerner still right. Around the same thirty four percent he had a higher percentage of his shots assisted which was a good thing. That's going to continue to be the case. Don't rely on him in isolation. Hopefully you can help out in transition but I was hoping to learn more about him. I. I don't think that the in certainly everyone is going to be very positive about him and I didn't you know the only played twelve games with the warriors I wasn't I don't think you should substantially change your prior and and as mentioned is stats are pretty much similar to what they were in Minnesota. So you gotta hope he can get better defensively. Maybe does I think they're better the low. I'll tell you this like even though Russell is clearly better player and a better asset than wiggins over all you knew for sure that with Russell on the team. They just couldn't go anywhere like he's just to make too much money too bad defensively. They just weren't going to be able to be a serious playoff team. Serious playoff defense. I think with him out there. So wiggins leads provides that possibility where teams aren't Gonna. Just go at him mercilessly. Oh he looks the part out there and then they picked up another asset with that so it depends. I think if there is their goal is to just build incrementally pick up another starter with the trade exception ANC. That trade helps them. I've come around on that a little bit. If you're trying to say he wanted trade for the best superstar now weakens really or dream on. It's going to have to be the salary balance. There you did pick up the sexual asset so I think And also just the fact that we has now been traded probably just makes it more tradeable again like someone took them already so maybe someone else will take him now So I feel a little better about it than I did at the time when I wasn't as into it. Yeah I think the Klay Thompson aspect of this matters in I'm not sure people about it though but if Russell was still around like Klay Thompson. You're starting three next season. He's he might come back to slow from the ACL Tori has to be three anyway. Yeah I just thinking about him. Being the primary guys go. You're starting the game on Lebron. You're starting the game on like I know. Klay Thompson is big enough and sturdy enough. He's you know he's a six seven he's about as good and you know physically there as you'll get out of the shooting guard position becoming often. Seal I just think they wanted another primary wing defender again. I know Andrew Wiggins historically defensively has not been terrific that every wolves defense. He's been on hasn't been great but you can at least see a wing defender there. Yeah I agree with you What are some of the biggest questions that are still unanswered? After this season I mean Klay Thompson you know. I I had been kind of. I don't know if advocates the right word but I had brought up a few times. The Paul George Example of Paul George breaks his leg in Can't remember the exact solid August first of twenty fourteen August? First Twenty fourteen. And the I would say. In retrospect people's thought his padres missed the entire next season. He didn't He came back in April played. I believe six game. Playoff race actually got eliminated from the playoffs on the last day of the season. The nets made it but but he came back..

"anthony slater" Discussed on Dunc'd On Basketball Podcast

"I decided that I wanted to do this. Series now not sure. We'll make through all thirty teams but and hopefully we'll be back to basketball quickly enough that we don't make it through all thirty teams but I'm thinking under most circumstances. Were probably not gonNA have a chance to do. All thirty team previews the way we usually do. So I WANNA start having some people on to talk about teams season so far to a season interview which is somewhat of a privilege. We wouldn't normally get to look back on seasons this way because the focus after the season's over is always on the next season so Let's start off here with Anthony. Slater of the athletic. I do good. I'm one of the cover one of the few teams that you can do this and kind of comfortably wrap up an entire season without worrying about like you know. How are the playoffs? GonNa look our the final seventeen games gonNA look cannon know how their season when the last stretch that got. We'll say canceled at this point. At least stopped didn't really matter. They were kind of playing out the string so we kind of have a full season. Look Yeah and If you're more interested in the wears off these actually one on slater's podcast. Last week of the workers already to podcasts on the athletic podcast network. If you WANNA just catch up still on what happened with this team. The idea here is we will talk about how some of the young players did how we feel about the organization after this year to stuff like that. So let's begin with this question. Give this team a grade for the season. Am I including like their moves in the offseason? Are we just counting? What when game one to game whatever it was fifty seven or something? Yeah that's an interesting one right. I think compared to what we thought was going to happen at the start of the year. I guess what would you say? What would you give them a Gumede? I you know the record is terrible. Fifteen and You know at the start of the season we were talking about five hundred. Six hundred seventy 'cause they squeeze in could Klay Thompson. Somehow you know. Come into the fold in April and they make some you know title run or at least you know contending run and that sounds ridiculous. In retrospect that was our thought But part of that was Steph. Curry got hurt in the third game. Sir Fourth Game of the season you know So I mean if you just look at a record D F If you KINDA put it all into context and add the steph curry injury which in a lot of ways I think was strangely. Kind of you know you. Don't like the Steph. Curry broke his hand and got a potential a little nerve damage in there but it it really allowed them to take the step back. They kind of needed to and the expectations were lowered to a point where they could just use it as a teaching season. So I don't know I would probably go with me because I actually think in a weird way. This restart as bad as they played on. The court was kind of good for them overall. So I I mean it's a strange season a great. I don't know you'd go with yet. It is tough. I mean you'd think just with the record you'd have to go with an F. If you wanted to take the seasons of players like dream on green compared to what we thought that are capable. That's probably close to an F. Who WE GIVE Z? Was LIKE SLEEPING? Like of and Yeah and de Ngelo Russell. That that obviously didn't work out. I mean they got about him right but I mean if you were going to just say. Hey they've still got g ngelo Russell they still got draymond green to recent all-stars quote unquote You'd think they could have been better than the worst team in the League. And even if you look at what they were doing before curry got hurt. I mean just getting completely destroyed in three of their first four games and the only team. They beat a team that started six and twenty two then. Yeah I think you're You'd have to say it's down like the the F. Range but I mean the so just in terms of like. How did these play on the floor of the streaming there? Certainly were some bright spots. We'll get to that but I mean there are expected by most people to make the playoffs. I thought they were more likely than not to miss it. But I still thought they'd be in the forty games. What's curious is to think of the alternate path. Where Steph doesn't get hurt and like where were they sitting when the season was suspended you know I think the five hundred Because that eight cedars v. what's crazy is we were wondering if they could sneak in this like Super Competitive West. But you now were just average. If they're five hundred they would've been in the running for the eight seed in you know maybe suddenly or maybe we were talking about Klay Thompson potentially trying to rush back for a playoff run again. what happened to the warriors has nothing to do with you. Know the cove in nineteen situation that would happen regardless we'd be sitting in a suspended season But if they if Steph doesn't get hurt maybe they do put themselves in playoff contention and then now suddenly we're talking about if they restarted the season in June. Hey they could be kind of like people are talking about the nets dark horse. Contender of Kevin durant suddenly comes back. Like we'd be having that conversation about clay But Again I. The weird thing is yes. Competitively F. D. F. Whatever you WANNA give him on the court But I think as you know three years from now look back at this season. You know. We'll say overall it probably wasn't a terrible thing for them to go through. Yeah and I I was going to save this question to later but since you brought it up. Do you feel better or worse about this team's long-term future now than you did before the season I would probably say better Because I think they solve the Kinda Russell positional confusion They have got their wing of the future. Now we can talk about if that was the proper guy to get But I think they are a better team for. Let's throw the contract numbers at the window for now. I think there are better team with Andrew wiggins playing thirty minutes than de Ngelo Russell kind of trying to squeeze in as a third guard and still get thirty minutes in his defensive problems So I think they're better there. I mean before the season Klay Thompson was very early in his. Acl Rehab now. He's basically in the very late stages of his ACL Rehab I feel worse about Draymond Green. Which is a big thing Steph curry is Steph. Curry got a lot of rest would be a good argument for him. He also had a pretty severe broken hand. It wasn't just like Oh. You know a little nick there that he can recover from. I mean we're legitimately talking about potential nerve damage. Although he remember the weird thing about all this member Steph curry played a game. It was just like drops in there like a little sprinkle games so weird And he was really good in it and like the left member he was just like whipping lefty passes with it. I mean you look pretty good. Looks like to himself. I mean the biggest thing about him is like as long as teams are still scared. Scared of him. He's going to be really good. Yeah and we'll get to Eric Paschal. I'm sure because he's probably the brightest spot of the season but They've got a rookie. When you pick twenty eight thirty nine forty one as they did last year you really. I mean obviously you want to hit. But if one of those picks hits as like a firm definite they believe rotation piece into the future. I think that's a win. And they got a win Eric. Pascal's will win so I feel I feel a little bit better. I would say well I think you would add in the fact that they have a huge asset that they had no way of getting before which is going to be this twenty twenty drik yet not agreed draft but still at a minimum. They could trade that for another starter level player at minimum if they wanted to do that. I don't know if they probably will shoot higher than that. I would imagine but it have that asset as well. Yeah it's a good point you get you get that asset which remember that you know if they suddenly had a if they somehow had a really good seasoning. Stephan stayed healthy and they were a top ten team. Let's say they had the you know the got the twenty first overall pick that's going to Brooklyn in In the DURANT IS RUSSELL. Scientists who keeping that first rounder was important and the fact that that first round is now going be guaranteed top five. This huge Also would happen this season in the Andrew Wiggins the Enzo Russell swap. They got Minnesota's twenty twenty one first rounder which I believe you and Danny have deemed like the best first round. Pick in the future. That's been moved. So that is a huge asset. That could eventually be added to like the seventeen point two million dollar trade exception this summer and they traded away a bunch of their vets. Willie Cauley Stein Glen Robinson Alec burks like the these rentals and they got second rounders now. That's not huge assets. But they were entering the season I think with only one of their second rounders over the next seven seasons now suddenly they have like six second rounders one thing that has gone worse though obviously is that they may be more affected by the cove nineteen crisis and revenue loss than some other teams because a lot of their revenue is based on having built the chase center having these luxury boxes having these concerts and other events in addition to worse games They did obviously get out of the tax for this year so they won't pay the repeater tax next year but Joe Lake had a recent interview with death lettuce. Tim Kyle comment saying how he's going to have to reevaluate and see where they're at financially before we know if he can really do the full pedal to the metal spending that that seventeen million dollars. Trade exception the mini mid level next year up to ten million dollars an extra salary from their first round draft. Pick Whether they can go as hard. They're if they can't that's really gonNA hamstring them. Because I was kind of the whole plan was they could ramp up the spending again next year. It will what's interesting is they. Were already not pumping in the revenue. That was expected right because when they built the building there were expecting this Kevin Durant infused dynasty to to still be kinda roaming the land That was going to be a lot of obviously hyped up regular season games that would have made them more money in the more important thing that probably would have been A. Let's say twelve fifteen playoff home games that they were already not gonNA get pre crisis regardless I for them to not make the playoffs. This season was unforeseen when they were building the building So but I mean when you actually look at the crisis if if if what happens is just that this last half of the rate or this last little bit of the regular season gets knocked off the only lost seven home games you know that will end up losing. Let's say twenty. It's around like twenty five million or so Great but not catastrophic. They lose concerts canceling these concerts in the summer. The that's that's a little trickles of money that they're missing out on but I think if you could guarantee them forty one home games next season that starts editor around. When it's supposed to you know October November range. I think they're fine. Because they they're going to reboot and come back and they didn't lose that much money they spend big but can we guarantee that at this point I mean. That's that's the problem. I mean you have this. I think it was what the Santa Clara Somebody that matters in Santa Clara said Thanksgiving is like the date for sports. Potentially to retire. Yeah I live sports. Yeah Yeah I mean that's when we're talking about the war is making money. It is putting on huge events at Chase Center. And they they don't know when that's coming back and that is going to matter. Joe Lake of talking about like he doesn't know yet like that's going to matter like do they. Go out and use this huge trade exception the mid level do they really round out a rotation that kind of needs to be rounded out and it also seems like all the governmental authorities. California's probably going to be the most reticent of any to start allying business as usual which I think is the correct decision for public health but also is going to negatively impact the warriors bottom line. What do you think are the biggest things are here? Actually take a quick break first. And then we go la more questions to get to WanNa tell you about Ron. Which makes the best active wear that I've encountered?.

"The bills the PODCAST. We do actually have our guy. Anthony Slater here. Who is the WHO covered the warriors and the NBA for the athletic? And we're excited to bring him on here because all this trade here this fourteen trade obviously it has implications for these fourteen but also has implications for Russell in the warriors going forward so Anthony First and foremost thanks for hopping on man. I'll I'll start here. What what did you make in the fourteen trade last night? We'll get into a second. But what was your initial Dawson. The fourteen deal last night while I thought it was interesting that Denver jumped in at at the end because that was kind of the warriors slot initially so that Kinda just told you that they dropped. That's obviously what I'm looking for my side of things I thought for Houston's was interesting. They finally pulled the plug on Cappella. You know I remember It was such a frustrated fanbase last year when I'm covering the West finals like Kvant. looney basically outplayed him in that series And yet that's everyone's eyes were kind of turned it hard and Paul in that relationship but that franchise. That city was a bit disappointed in Cappella so they gave him up. They basically don't really have center. I mean I know they're bringing short fell in but that's not the answer. I got to think of the West last. They still need to get a five anthony switch over to de Ngelo Russell. What's it been like with the Ngelo Russell on the warriors is just like? Hey they paid me so I respect these guys in and is he going to be eventually moved in next couple of days. I don't know that he's going to be moving next couple of days. I would expect him to be moved before next October. You know I think with the warriors to things they WANNA get out of the heart cap which will happen in July and and they wanNA know what picks they get you know if they get the number one pick and if one of these stars gets unhappy you know we're talking about Bradley beal Washington something like that They're thinking maybe. CBS possible that package that pick with the Russell and try to get a guy like that. What happens is is one of those guys become unhappy But you know they. It was clear. They're really trying to pressure the wolves to a bad move the last couple of days. You know A few first round picks I know obviously Minnesota thank awakens however. That's just not going to get it done by itself But as far as Russell it's clear you know he probably even knew at this off season talking to them that he's signing into Be a trade ship more unlike future pillar of the warriors because you're signing onto a team that already has a star point guard. Who's like the biggest legend Franchise History Steph Curry and Klay Thompson? WHO's basically basically the same thing coming back next year And those are two guard positions now. Clay could shift to the three if you have to. But it's pretty clear from the warriors side as they try to chase. You know more titles in the future using that the Angelo money in that the Angelo acid is probably better to kind of replenish. The rest of the roster that very thin at the wing and they needed center moving forward the warriors playing with fire here because right now Minnesota is interested in the Ngelo Russell. What if Minnesota just one like I duNno falls out of love with him goes the different direction? Do the warriors at all afraid that he'll be stuck with the ngelo Russell. Yeah I mean that's always a risk like that. Just you know you go back to summer and there's just not nearly the market and then suddenly you know what you could have got a package that was basically double is good this time around. I think they're relying on the fact. That Karl Anthony towns is really good friends at the Ngelo Russell. Minnesota's pretty obsessed with them. I mean I I don't know if you know the free agency story this summer where They take him up on the helicopter over. La this is the first day of free agency crawl. Towns is there because he's friends. They're really pushing the whole Minnesota Front office is there. And while he's in the air it it hits everybody's phones that the ends low agreed to the Max with the warriors But ever since then I mean it's clear Minnesota. You know moving forward really wants to make Karl Anthony Towns Happy I mean. That's kind of should be priority number one right because they don't want him to go. Anthony Davis in a year or two and tried to force his way out so to do that getting his best friend who was also who he believes a really good pick and roll partner before Russell. probably going to be at the front of his brain still this summer so I think from the warriors are calculating that Minnesota will still be very interested in him comes along so what you know what come July then if that ends up happening what is the what does it look like just wiggins half to be included. -cluded are the warriors at all interested in Wiggins contract. Obviously we know is pretty disastrous. But you never know maybe they see something there as as a guy that in need it on the wing. What is the the deal look like from Minnesota is it is it just a bunch of picks and they sort of overpay for de Ngelo? Yeah I mean there are people within the words I think wiggins and salvageable now now they don't think wiggins for Russell they basically have the same contract which makes the treaty. Nobody in the warriors. Think that's an even trade though I mean picks half to be also come in the warriors way away They really want the unprotected wolves. You know this season pick the twenty twenty. Pick which you know I I think timberwolves started ten eight and five and twenty twenty four cents. So that's probably going to be like number five or number six as far as picks go And I it's not a great draft. I think they also wanted to talking to people in the organization they WanNa get I in the future because you've got to remember with the sign and trade with Russell. They gave up initially gave up too. I although one of them's going to switch to a second can because they're so bad this year They need to kind of replenish their covered. 'cause as tidal team you know the last five years. They traded away a lot of their future assets. They kind of need to build some in fact So I see them kind of going after a batch of pick. Yeah what do you think that they need to be championship. Level again is it. You mentioned Brad beal but that just gives them more guard. Help versatility at that position and the guys on their team right now. Is there anybody they really like. You can see on their team next year. Lynn Robinson Steve Kerr believe he can be the starting three next year Shooting about forty percent Eh. Three quietly having a good season I mean they're they're not a great defense but he is the guy that they put on You know kind of the star scores And he's he's done it this year. They do believe he on a title team could be like twenty five thirty minute per game wing which they really need There's a lot of thought about Andrea with all. Come back back now. How much does he have left in the tank? I don't know but from their side of things. That's that's Kinda bring in the two thousand sixteen seventeen eighteen type flavor back into the roster. I I think they need a center. They weren't Kvant Louis to be a thirty minute per night. Guy Akhavan Looney type that we saw in the playoffs. But I'm just not sure it's bodies ever going to be able to do that. Ah He's at nervous. Use The seasons at hamstring issues. You had an issue that you know him. That's eighteen games. He signed a three year deal but if they can't rely on him to be an eighty eighty cricket eighty games. You play twenty five ish minutes. They need to go get a center. Maybe they use the draft pick. Maybe they get James Wiseman at this point they have the worst record in the league so they they can basically choose anybody to their liking out there. I just don't know that there's an immediate contributer in this draft draft experts so It's clearly wing and center. It's where they really need to kind of fill the roth now. Where do they get that? We'll see lasting for me Anthony Mitchell. I'm actually interested in what they do with that with that Picnic's next year what you think they do at that picks the next year and do you think that Russell plays in a game with Klay Staff in the whole you know dream on the and the whole team or do you think that they moved him before you do think we ever even get there. I don't think we'll get there. I said he's GonNa be traded before Next season now he's GonNa play with probably about twenty more games with Steph after this year. Because I think he's GonNa make it past this deadline. We'll see there's always something that could happen in the next couple days But that could give them you know. May maybe if that goes really well and like Russell and Steph Russell. Were better off the ball than expected because it was basically didn't get any of that this is and they played together. I think a total of eighty four minutes before Steph went down with the hand injury so Maybe that changes the equation of those two really good in the final months with Klay coming back next year. I Guess Russell is gone and you know what did they do to pick at this point in less somebody really good because available. I did mentioned field who I do think would fit better with you. Know Klay kind of switching off duties guarding ringling You Know Offense Simmons. He'd be a really awkward kind of fit with Draymond Green. Ben Simmons is such a talent becomes available. You would probably go chase after him but I probably ultimately see them having to use the pick And if they do that it's either going to be a winger center. I really like wise been. We'll see he's such a mystery because I mean how much basketball we actually play But you know to me he fits exactly what you would think they would need locker at rim protector. Really really high energy young type of talent But honestly how do we know if he's really ready for the NBA. Right anti slater. You get ready to go here. You're about I want you to drop some bombs here. Can't just be a woge bomb can you. Can you bring the heat during his trade deadline is Alec burks for a potential second round. Pick up words that you might see one of those on the way in the next forty eight hours.

"Difference Violence they're not they just have a I think they just have too many matchup issues in the postseason it and you I mean Houston it's just like I'll believe it when I see it with take starting to think Danny sarcastic when he says that no he he is maybe he he needs he needs something to tie me too though but yeah so but that that kind of throughout the whole development curve of guys they care about like with the market and they were saying well we don't really know about them because we pickup what he can do Defense Liza Lisa an adequate standstill shooter as well good good pick and roll player should be a pretty big upgrade over what done gave them and fort type of guy at point guard if you need to play either wight or senator inskeep more at the tour or even the three let's get this now the announcement from Boylan and expected one today that sadder anti wouldn't info act A. B. The starting point guard house he looked at in preseason what do you expect from him this year well in general I try not to take too much from the preseason and a lot of that's kind of like informed my my skepticism about this team because if you were just looking at the preseason the dolphins looks very good and especially with Santa Renske at home there was I a they ran the the number of plus minus with him versus dawn because they kind of split the duties in the preseason is sort of a pseudo tryout although is probably likely set rescue is GonNa Win object based on his on his contract they went out to trade for him but he was he was like a plus thirty and don was at minus ten in those in those starters minutes together and I think that showed in the eye test as well just that he has less of a ball stopper then Chris Dun not as good of a ball defender but very good defender good positions sized for sure and more of facilitator whereas you have guys like Zach Levine who's GonNa Command the ball a lot more definitely raises usage in the preseason and we well with with Lydia Dunn's numbers of suffered Levin suburb of suffered when they're together 'cause Don Kinda still fancies himself as like a ball dominant lead guard uh-huh but when he doesn't have the ball he's not nearly as effective due to his outside shooting so I think this is a good move to it was a kind of an obvious move but still so good sign that they're that they're going this way with senator and ski they kind of went into the training camp saying well this is an open competition Chris done did a lot of work in the offseason it was pretty apparent in the in the preseason as as like reticent as I am to give evidence to that it's still like that Cetera inskeep won the job outright and I think that's the right decision yeah and certainly Sanski Far Superior Track record to done before this and like I like to say about small samples went it feeds into perhaps the evidence would indicate it beforehand then you there's more reason to believe it you know I mean we believe Kristen isn't that great shooter and Lo and behold he was not that great of a shooter in the preseason what was his willingness to take a spot up looks in the preseason appeared like he was he was ready to let a flying I think in general all the team has been encouraged to shoot more three pointers this season which is what's been really encouraging going into the season kind of feeding into the hype if this could be a good offense what we saw last year especially was boiling coming in saying they were going to go to a crawl and then they did so it was abysmal they were banned with Hoiberg but Hoiberg said thanks just couldn't get the team to actually do it plus he didn't have quite the personnel as we discussed with Jabari Parker and some of the injuries but boiling comes and says we're not going to do that China we're GONNA slow it down offensively to create this kind of back to basics type approach and then this kind of story came out where they had a decent February and where they were seventy five or something but a lot of that wasn't so much that they changed their shot profile or Jim Boylan let them run more they were slightly higher a pace they were like twentieth base instead of near the bottom of league but the debate differences that they simply made their threes in that time and they had a otto porter who is shooting mind when I came over and I think a lot of it is kind of feeding into this idea that this is going to be the new balls that and the preseason they're going to be a runner down shoot a lot of threes they were last league in like the percentage of field goals being a three pointer and this year in the previous improve their shop file lot but I still want to see it in the regular season but Sarah's definitely helps in that he's capable outside shooter and a little bit more willing Chris Don not only his percentage is actually weren't as terrible as you would expect but he just had like no volume to where even if he did it like thirty two percent of his makes soon enough to be a legitimate threat at all instead of only two point seven three pointed temps for thirty six minutes last year that is an exceedingly low number for guard but he makes a and so you'd hope that he can take a few more at and who he did play next Bradley beal some last year you think that that could have gleaned him some more spot up look it was good Washington offense in probably after even John Wall went down so I do think you know his willingness to move the ball his cutting all that severe if he's not taking the oh shots at and it's also not as damaging to and you have porter in marketing who are pretty good marksmen next to him looks to me like he's gained like twenty pounds I'll know I can't decide whether it's good weight yet but he looks to blow up and that was always the criticism of him defensively that he was too slight to be a stopper against some of those other wings certainly he's GonNa be cast in that role on this team to guard the bigger wings the extent that that they're gonNA be playing them this year aren't that many in the eastern conference but how does he look to you in the president you agree with that he looks like he's put on quite a few pounds yeah and that's something we'll have to see like how they really have anyone else to defend wings Tech Levin obviously he's a very poor defender and they don't have much backups channel tired of people talking Shit it was specific quote right well tired of it he thinks he's already a good on ball defender and I'm sorry he's not I know that's like a common a common thing that not only he like some beat reporters would say well he's actually good on the ball it's like I think it's more that he's just better than he is off the ball because he's just abysmal off the ball loses focus so easily by even on the ball blown up and screams all the time you still very slight it'll be nice to see if he does take more concerted effort on that end I think anecdotally in the preseason he looks a little better but yea back to him and on a porter so behind them you have Chandler Hutchison who was like probably fit the profile of defendant of a wing stopper Denzel Valentine obviously can't do it not even sure as an NBA player at this point so they're going to be trying to play guys oppositions Sanski will probably play a lot of wing maybe they'll have to use check Harrison and Chris done as wing defender they're obviously on the smaller side so a lot is on auto porter to if he has walked up to bulk up too far to not be able to guard the the her wings because I think the larger wings there they got daddy as young for that role as kind of like a prototypical guide to defend like Lebron James of League and the the larger wings Janas obviously they have to match up with him four times a year you're one of the better jobs on him yes I mean I guess it's just GonNa be backup three by committee porter to me is is the one guy that they really can't afford to lose it has envy front court rotation how's that shaking out to you oh I think marketing and the obviously have a starting power forward and I think they want to try and more at a backup center to have that he's young slide in the four in in have marketing play some center one though Carter had an injury that ended lassie's an event he had offseason surgery core muscle they said it was more of a involuntary thing that cleaned up something that had been bothering him his whole career but it did cost him sometime in training camp he then or in the offseason workouts before training camps started training camp sprained his ankle bruises tailbone he also barely got in preseason so I'm not probably going to have him as the starter but I'm not sure how many minutes is going to be able to play right away he's also always battled foul trouble in his brief time in the league while to see how that plays out this year sophomore season so behind that no they actually have some good depth with Dennis young four and then Lou Cornet at the at the five is kind of a a five out center who can speak the floor with marketing I mean if you put him and marketing and a backup lineup that's very interesting again they can try marketing that center but then you're talking about well how does it affect their defense house effective rebound thing especially they were never a good defensive team last year even though boy link had has this reputation as this hard ask coach who's going to get the guys to to grind but he never really manifested himself in actual defense they were bad under Hoiberg the even worse at points under Boylan they are going to Robin Lopez wasn't a good defender and space but he's it could stand there and I think he really helped the team's defensive rebounding Robin Lopez has long been known for a guy who will help the team by blocking out guys and allowing other players to get rebounds I think a lot of what we see in Lauri Markkanen 's regarding might've been like bullied by Rommel presence that was something that was kind of a knock on him in the draft it turned out to be actually good they were they were last in the league last year and offense and rebounding so I think that is a I think it's intriguing that they have so much shooting in the front court now but we'll have to see like how it affects their defense and affects rebounding because I know obviously you'll have part of the pushing the ball will be secure that defensive rebound and they have a lot of good positional size elsewhere you're on the court but at center a lot of relies on Carter to kind of get better a lot quicker than you would expect for twenty rolled Amin had a couple of injuries in his second year so I'm Kinda like more wait and see you when it comes to Carter I really liked his potential I think he's really great fit next to Markkanen especially if he and proves his shooting range by defensively I don't think it's set in stone that he's going to be this great stop right away I think he for a rookie big I thought he was pretty decent last year again obviously not only playing the forty four games that and I like young's fit next having your one of the best defensive guys I had him on my all deacons of second team last year certainly ages a concern with young but I mean he's told miles better than anyone they've had comes down to the put the pieces around these guys right now and Zach Levine and Lauri Markkanen are going to have to take major sub Ford's for this team to compete for the plant awesome let's start with Markkanen what do you think the odds are of him being able to take a step forward what does he need to do better realistically to carry the team in employees often touch yeah market has been interesting and he hasn't had the breakout preseason Zach Levine had so a lot I'm kind of worried about him plant not so much thing but maybe plateauing as a player he his three point percentage is not as good as you would expect I mean he he gets up a lot of tabs on it's like kind of a novelty that he's so big get his shot off anywhere but he's in the low thirty percent than what you would expect someone of marketing is like pedigree to be upper near forty percent where I think he should be he he really wants to be a major like offensive weapon and then his two point percentage isn't as good as you'd expect either I think a lot of what Laurie marketing we see is more being able to take it coast to coast and kind of bump into guys and take contact and finish inside but we didn't see it for the whole season for sure and had injury both to end the season begin his season and he.

"Jeremy Grant this year and say hey you're in a contract it's year you're kind of a rising your profile is rising in a summer where there's GonNa be tons of cap space but for him to agree part of this is just his personality I think he's a very team oriented guy but for them to say hey you're we're gonNA bring you off the bench but look plumlee came off the bench and we paid him above you we we took care of him we're going to do the same for you and I think that Denver now has the equity to be at least able to say that having by maybe not maybe they would have had that anyway but at least that's their thinking and I I think it's going to pan out with him so Murray as we talked about him enough obviously he needs to get a little bit more efficient himself here on an the hope is that he can just make another incremental stuff forty I'm not affecting some quantum leap but above league average inefficiency this year might be nice to me I thought their offense was slightly disappointing last year to be number seventy grip granted with the the number of injuries that they had they also I think Paul millsap you can argue makes them a little bit worse offensively but obviously is incredibly important for what they're doing and defensively so Gary Harrison one of the reasons I think that people think the nuggets can be better this year is that he in some ways head a loss you're the if you look back at the numbers games you play this kind of more than you recall he was at e. yeah but a forty or fifty seven games last year but there was only I think nineteen of the it gets hurt and he's almost down to single digits the rest of the year and his usage just like plummeted enlarge part I think because he's a smart and unselfish player and he just himself he missed all that time and when he came back it was like okay we can't reintegrate me into being like high usage player higher usage player was where do I fit in his defense I thought was great great but his offense took a huge dive and if you look at the shots at the rim that that's where you really see and I think the fewest of his career in the lowest percentage of his career so he did play a lot more games than you then you realize but most of those games were at clearly below one hundred percent yet ten of those he didn't start which are pretty clearly when he's not starting that's the occasion that you know he's working his way back during those games any I've drop offs across the board thirty four percent from three even more telling to me was about twenty five eight percent drop in his number of three point attempts per minute which to me indicated again just was not feeling country you can see a lot of those those groin hamstrings hype injuries where you know you just don't quite have that base to shoot the ball especially on the move which is something that he had been getting around the forty percent range to two years prior to that and you mentioned this cutting finishing at the rib also so yeah I I think he's a pretty darn good bet to bounce back on the other hand you know Nicole Yokich played the eighty one game something like that last year he could he's the one guy that they can't afford to miss time but he's been relatively healthy in his career doesn't necessarily play an injury Rhone style so I think you could probably count on him for seventy five games at least right this year so let's let's see how much what are some of the other rotation battles and we we talked about small forward here about some of the other things that Mike bones gets to sort out this year I think how many minutes may simply plays is going to be really interesting because zero zero zero please sorry got a little close I lost control their pro will you know it might be closer to that than any year before in fact I think I what am I hot takes the you know that I gave the season that he'll play.

Everybody rightfully hated the refs in Rockets-Warriors Game 1

"You in the leadoff spot. Following a warriors one. Oh, four one hundred win in game one of the Western Conference semis. This is the series. Everyone's been waiting for. And I feel like Dame lived up to the hype and and following game one now all of the post game discussion and all of the the soap opera that goes into. What makes the NBA great continues here on the Monday morning following James Harden's line? This is an all time line, by the way following a loss. I just want to. Fair chance. I just want them to give me a fair chance to go out. And try to win James harden who shot one less free throw the Kevin Durant did yesterday. They just didn't have it takes a village to stop James harden and takes a village to try to stop the Houston Rockets. I I'd say, Dan, Tony probably did not manage his his rotations the way he wanted to down the stretch you end up with a couple of mismatches with Steph curry being guarded by a and he not start a coach three. And then of course, all the calls about this is the feel like in the NFL we get this every couple of years where you get a new term that sort of takes over the league for a season. Or so Dave, you know, what I'm talking about next up. Dave back, by the way this week. You get these different things like member. Of course, the wildcat was a term one year gay manager was a term one year things. Just like you get a little you get comfortable with the phrase, and you continue to use it the term right now. Of course, we've had load management was a big win this year in the NBA the one we're dealing with right now. We'll last series. It was top locking with the LA clippers. And now, we're dealing with the landing spot the landing spot is now going to be the theme at least until they played team to tomorrow night. So what we're talking about is whether or not these things should be called fouls. When a joke shooter goes up comes down in a spot that maybe wasn't necessarily the same spot. He took off from and what the responsibility of the defensive player is he allowed to move laterally towards the the player who's taken the jump shot as he allowed to come down in the in a similar spot. Does the jump shooter has to contorts his body to get out of the way of the defender. And if so is that a foul, I think those are really mad. It does matter because the Houston Rockets are complaining about it. So let's let's break this down for just a minute. I wanna make a couple of points about a few things here. The Houston Rockets losing this game by four and my dantonio had coach after the game said that at halftime the officials told them. Hey, we missed four calls. We missed a handful of calls and he's saying, hey, if you're going to tell me that too that means there are free throws that we should be having right there at the low. I mean, my my. My assumption or my feeling about this is figuring tell me you miss calls. That's like an empire saying, hey, you know, what I blew a couple of those balls and strikes calls, you probably should have had a few more guys on base. When that dude hit the home run. It's almost like you've earned something here that an official has completely botched completely avoided or not called then he realizes after. Yeah. You know, maybe maybe I did sort of boxed that one. Or maybe I did make a mistake on that one in basketball that directly affects how many points you may have. It's the one game where I can put you at the line with the ball and say here's a couple of free points for your team because of the foul committed by the opposition. So the Antoni was not irate after the game. He gave a comment about we've got to look in the mirror. We've got to figure out what we can do better talking about. How he maybe? He agreed. I think with some of the media questions about whether or not nation have been on the floor at the end there with forty seconds left trailing. And he's out there guarding Steph and Steve Kerr made a comment that at this point of the season in the NBA playoffs when? You've got five guys on the floor. You just are sort of having your guys guard whoever the opposition wants them to guard because you're going to go with your best five guys. They're going to go with their best five and whoever they can guard us whoever they can guard. That's just the situation you're in at that point. Now when it comes to committing these fouls or whether or not these were fouls after the game. Whether or not you agree with what Houston's been saying that they were getting officiated differently. And I don't agree, by the way. I I'm not gonna stand here and say sit here and say that Houston had some major disadvantage in this game. I think the Dame was called pretty consistently though. I will agree that a couple of the calls. The Houston is upset about. We're probably fouls. I know people are upset with the Chris Paul won the technical foul. The first one in my mind, that's a foul the Shaun Livingston bleeping at M M B, and I got into a heated debate about fifteen minutes ago in the bullpen where I did. We did a freeze frame by frame of Chris Paul going taking the shot. You can see shod Livingston's feet come down behind Chris Paul. He's not directly. Under him. But in my mind, he's changed Chris Paul shot enough to where he's invaded his landing spot. And he's committed a foul because Chris Paul does not have the right to where he went up and came back down on now when you flop and Chris Paul did flop on that play. You lose a whole lot of credibility in my mind. If you flop I think, you should be less likely to get called you should be less likely to to to get the foul called in your favor that said, it's probably still a foul. Now, you've got players from the Utah Jazz Rudy Gobert was check it in yesterday on Twitter Jared deadly the nets a lot of players who team seasons are now over of course, watching what everybody's anticipated to be the almost the pseudo Western Conference final between the rockets and the warriors, and they were checking in and Ruediger bare said, hey, my guys in the last round against the rockets were not allowed to close out and defend that aggressively. And then Donovan Mitchell, the young guard for the jazz re tweeted and said, why don't you just give me the twenty five thousand if you've got a complaint about the refs on Twitter. Just throw the cash. My way 'cause you're probably going to get fined anyway, Jared Dudley. The nets went as far as soon as look I don't think anybody deserves to get a foul called when you flop, but that's a foul the Shaun Livingston running by people. I it's polarizing people feel differently about it believe it was a foul. The second one at the end of the ballgame. And Chris Paul gets called when he's trying to throw the ball away. I don't totally agree with that. I do think James harden might have been affected a little bit by the Klay Thompson contact at the top of the key on the the attempted three that did not go in. But you can also look at that. And just say him, and you didn't even get that good of a look at it. There was a guy right in your face. You heaved a three with multiple seconds on the clock. And did not go your way ball gets tossed out of bounds. And the rest is history. Warriors, get the the technical foul and the knock down the free throw to win it. So from the side of the of the Houston Rockets where you lose this game. You feel like it was a -ficiating in a way that was not in your favor. They've been very. It's a word. I'm looking for. They've been political with how they've gone about talking about the officials because they have not called out officials. Exactly, they have not said, hey, this guy botched this call right here. Chris Paul went as far to say, hey, I got to be better. I can't be getting tech new thousand getting ojected from the game almost putting it on himself saying I've got to be better for my teammates. Now, they're upset about the way some of these calls have gone gone down. But they're going about it in the way that the warriors went about it during the first round against the clippers. And that is to contact the league and say, hey, look at all this video that we have of Pat Beverley pushing and pulling and tugging and shoving on Steph curry, you guys have got to keep it out of it. So at the very least here, I think the rockets have now called attention or spotlighted something that is going to be a theme throughout the rest of this series. And that's that it's going to be physical. It's going to be aggressive. These benches are going to get smaller and smaller as we get near the end of this series. But this is only the beginning in my mind. This thing is not going to go away. Anytime soon, by the way, we didn't even mention the Friday night. This is how how intense game one was even mentioned, by the way warriors advanced past the first round of the Western Conference playoffs after fifty point performance from Kevin Durant. Put it out read from the clippers on Friday night warriors less than forty eight hours later, come back to oracle and the beat the rockets who are already sitting in their living room with their feet up waiting for him to get here. And and they stuck it to him. So hey last week. I made a point I made a sort of a plea to to Steve Kerr, San hey, man. You can't be playing these starters like thirty three thirty four thirty five minutes any Kevin Durant out there for forty plus last night, forty three minutes from Kevin Durant. He goes thirty five points, three assists, five rebounds. He may be the hottest streak we've ever seen him on as a member of the warriors. I say that sort of just because I I'm being a victim of the moment here with how much a Kevin Durant. Spent successful since the eight shot performance in game two of round one. When everybody kinda lost their heads, saying, hey. He's he's not locked in. He doesn't want. It that bad. I said do just like Kevin Durant. Kevin durant? And what did he say, David? Kevin Durant attacking me Celeste. I thirty five points to lead all warriors scores. He goes twelve or fifteen from the line was a great note here, by the way from Anthony Slater, saying, you know, we talked about how aggressive he's been in people want to say, well, he's dishing too much. He's not getting to the rim. Nobody said anything about that. By the way in the last five games that he's played. But Kevin Durant. Attempted fifteen free throws yesterday. He's taken seventy four this entire postseason Hughley averaged six and a half free throws a game in the regular season. He's averaging ten and a half a game right now in the postseason. He's taking over Kevin Durant right now, maybe at the prime and the peak of his career. He's making sure the warriors are going to have a damn good shot didn't back to the Western Conference. Who is he? Kevin durant? All right. We've got some great sound from yesterday's post game. We haven't even had to mention the giants getting swept out of oracle part of it was not good. Derek rodriguez. Did not have it yesterday. We'll get into some of that the sharks tied one one and their series in the as take another sweep at the hands of the Blue Jays the one team. The giants can beat the Toronto Blue Jays. The as can't figure them out swept twice in the last two weeks by that team. We got some great sound, Mike Keown, Tony Steve Kerr. And James harden, San all I'm saying is give me a chance all we're saying. Dave is give James harden a chance Draymond green was not having it with that comment

Jordan Bell Reportedly Suspended over Hotel Charge to Mike Brown's Room

"Because the big story of the night. And I don't care where you stand. But the biggest story of the night popped with the Golden State Warriors as it came down Wednesday afternoon. Jordan bell was suspended for by a part of me. Jordan bell was suspended one game by the team for conduct detrimental. And we thought all right that could be a bunch of different things. Maybe the guy was late. Maybe he flipped off Steve Kerr, whatever maybe. Jordan bell he suspended big whoop. But Anthony Slater Sam amick. They start digging around they start nosing around and find out that bell was suspended because he charged something on Mike Brown's room when they were staying at the team's hotel in Memphis, and to make matters worse for bell more funny for us apparently allegedly bells, a repeat offender allegedly bell has been doing this. And it's not the first time. We don't know if it's Mike Brown or if it's everybody else. So we kind of gave bell the benefit of the doubt here and said, no way, he's foolish enough to continue to just charge stuff on Mike Brown's unless it's some prank, and what you just adding more and adding more he's probably if he has any smarts about him going down a list. He's got a list of everybody on the team and thinking all right? You know, who can I charge and he crosses somebody out. Until it crosses everybody out. And then it's like laundry you throw it to the cycle. And then you start over again. So I've got a list of all the names and Jacob and I were trying to figure out of all the amenities, and we're going to try to match them. So if I throw Steve Kerr out there. What do you think the amenity or what do you think something extra that Jordan bellwood charge? Be like I now think about the audacity instead of stones. You have to have to charge something on your head coaches Bill, but still it's NBA maybe can get away with it apparently not because he couldn't even get away with it with the assistant. But here's the thing you need to play this not necessarily what the amenity is so much as what the amenity would be that would fly under fill in the blanks radar. So Steve Kerr like what could Jordan bell charge that would fly under Steve Kerr's radar to where he's checking out. It's just like. Oh, yeah. Nine hundred nine whatever. Like, yeah. Just I gotta get outta here. I got a game a coach as opposed to breaking out that magnifying glass eighty nine ninety nine. I didn't order that porn movie. Steve Kerr's, a big porn guy. No. That's why I think porn is out for to. I think Draymond or boogie or the first two guys that come to mind for porn interesting. Her. I don't know. I mean, curt like a massage service a good looking guy and massages interesting vk, given all the personalities he has on that team. He seems like a pretty relaxed guy. And it's like, okay. How can this guy come out every night not seem like he has a care in the world and deal with all these guys massage could be a good one. Yeah. He either gets a lotta massages or is whacked out on edibles. Either one is equally possible. Absolutely. So you you're gonna go massage for Kara how about Manny petty good-looking guy, well-kempt bad, actually, that's not bad at all. I would say I would do one of the two I could definitely think one of the two. All right. How about Steph family, man? He has a family man, really escorts for staff the least controversial player in the NBA. Absolutely. So what's the least controversial amenity? I think the most controversial thing Steph. Curry does is maybe he orders a second desert any any hates himself for it. Like, he just feels really guilty. So that that is his one guilty. Vice it's like, it's like an ice cream Sunday. So I saw when I was looking for all these different amenities that one of these places, I it might even be a hotel in New York offers a forty pound Donut. Like two hundred bucks for a forty pound. Don't that's like half of Steph curry size. Well, that's what I'm thinking. Maybe to your points bell throws on that forty pound Donut. And his like, well, you know, two hundred bucks step is probably having his meal for his wife and his kit. Right. I mean, he's got a family in there so room service. What's another two hundred dollars? Probably tip the guy two hundred dollars. I could see the fourth stroke Donut. All right

Here we go for the big money. All right. Klay Thompson shot attempts to season twenty four nineteen seven. Oh, damn. All three guys averaging twenty shots per game. What did they do the two previous years? The exact same exactly. It's it's a lot easier to take less shots. If you know you still gonna get a good amount of shots. But the shots you get because you share the ball are going to be really really really good shots because I would think other than just being able to get a ton of shots. What you alternately would like to do is get shots that are easier for you. Obviously understanding context of how it is not easy to get your shot off in an NBA game unless you Kevin Durant because you're just such a ridiculous athletic specimen out there. But if you go get shots number of shots. Great. But if I could get really good shots is the warriors. Do you back that ego for lack of a better way of putting it off a bit? I mean, it's just and if you have guys who can understand that or who? Normally look at it that way, it's really easy to do with the warriors are doing right now. Yeah. The the other thing is that when someone gets to twenty shots Steve will say you've taken twenty shots. No more. That's enough for you. Okay. They don't do that. They did. Now. I just leave just holds up a side. No more shooting was a corresponding number audit. Yeah. Like calling plays in college football just holds up a big post hip Ford. You've had your twenty. That's enough on now. Go rebound. It is Anthony put that out that it is uncanny that that was the big story when they you know, I had Kevin come over like, there's only one basketball. How are they going to do this and whose team is in and all this kind of stuff, and as it turned out, you know, what just naturally these guys to share it to and must what must be credited is sublimated and gave up his entire offensive game two to allow all this to happen. Trayvon draymond. Exactly, right. That Draymond green. And you know, who kind of whispered in his ear that I don't know if they'll ever publicly admit it. But it's just a fact who whispered in his ear that it ain't about stats. It's about winning and because you're indispensable. You're gonna get paid Audrey Gadullah because he was the first guy come off the bench cool. Average six seven points a game. But I win the finals MVP because they start me when they need me play defense, or what we need tonight, rebounding. What do we need here? All we need transitional, have assists. Oh going into lockdown. This other winglike win Angelica will pay everybody that kind of intelligence that Andrea dollar displayed then and is displayed before and will continue to display I believe that. He's the smartest guy on the team. John exactly that. But that kind of intelligence is what gets you through your contract extensions. We have you are in your thirties. Okay. So now, you know, just just so people can follow through on this clays making like seventeen and dream on a little bit more at eighteen c- Andres making sixteen he's right there. You know what I mean? It's and what you know. There was a lot of land. You're going to give you a dollar forty eight million over three years and this and that because he helps you win and Draymond helps you win. Like, I think, you know, five ten years ago that was always say, you know, what what's the scoring average. What's this? What's that? Then shame Batty became like a worker bee on some championship teams and different Spurs plugged and played where it's like, you know, what kind of win. You know, what do you do to help me win Dennis Rodman when he fit with the bulls? Were they worried about Rodman shooting jump? No defended rebounded you have to be within the right situation for that to be valued. Yes. Because there are some teams. There are some situations where intelligence and playing the back when necessary or rebounding defense all the important stuff. There are some situations and instances where that's not valued. And those teams are normally garbage. But there are situations where doing the little stuff that really. Is the big stuff where that's at value when you are valued at Shane Betty was as Dennis Rodman was and now as Andre etc. Is now an Draymond Draymond green. Is is I was about to say when that's valued in terms of not just hey pats on the back, man, we love you. We appreciate what you're doing. But when that's valued in terms of actually putting a monetary figure on it. Then everybody's getting out everybody. But smart people are gonna look around and go, okay. I'd like to shoot it from twenty four feet every game. But I'm not built to be that, dude. But maybe I'm built to be a Draymond green type. It's it's fake that there's somebody out there are people out there who look I to be a Draymond green type player. That's great. But you're only thinking about that because he's winning and it's been valued on what is generational team. And this the warriors right now. Yeah. The nine one six nineteen point seven shots per game. Antoine. Walker is rolling open. Ploy? Number eight is rolling over his grave four hundred eight says so this and Brooks university agree that there was a moon landing. If so why haven't we gone back to the moon and tilts say we haven't been there. Okay here. Here's the deal. Mullany happen legitimately happen with her several times. We did you say no one else has done it Succo net other countries. But here's what they don't tell you. Are you ready for the great conspiracy teeny? I'm ready. Here's what they don't tell you. There's life on the moon. I'll see you on the dark side of the moon is going on. It's it's popping. It's like Atlanta except with less gravity. All right. But they don't want you to know that. That's what the government is keeping from you. Damp. Yeah. See see see how good it feels. Did you say something wild and reckless? Yeah. Love it. And let's just you know, let's always skew locals. We do on our show next nine or pass rusher coming from the dark side of the moon. That's that's where they're gonna get. Where where you getting from right? Okay. Forget it from a D three college dark side of the moon or you craft him and some laboratory down in Palo Alto. Please. Just get a pass rusher. Niners just one. So so during the holiday season is when you lean on the people that love you and care about you. I do need a little help from you here. Oh, sure. You put the star on the Christmas tree again. You just get a step ladder, man. It's I'm waiting for Ryan to get home from school. But I did. Oh, no, I'm I'm ashamed to admit it because I thought hang on hang on hang on long road trip. Ten days on the road. You had off time in some bad bad cities. But not fun and very cold cities. Like all outside. I didn't. I didn't to do it. I can hear the sniffling. Did you get on that draft? I looked at the Mark God. Oh, no, Bob. I thought you could make it through the year clean injecting that mock draft directly into your cerebral cortex. Oh, no at the first six pigs for all D lineman. So I started breaking down all the different sale to see which was would work better for the Niners. And or the radio see what losing football has done to this, man. I'll bet that's raiders. Did you see that? It is driven him back into the bosom of that demon daemon drug that nasty narcotic van NFL much Trask. So Bob, I thought we had we had finally got into a point where you could be left alone unsupervised and not go back to your old scheme in mock dad, Bob, I'm just disappointed but on the road trip. I did channel my inner rod Brooks because when I went through the mock draft, and I got into the late twenties. Like, I don't know twenty six twenty seven twenty eight and I saw the bears pick that they're giving the raiders is going to go. I want. Take that twenty seven th pick. We'll take Khalil Mack. I did my best cowboy rod cackle. That's pretty good. Yeah. 'cause that's you know, the raiders like we're getting the bears pick they stink. Now. Guess what Khalil back made sure that they didn't snake nearly as much and even that Amari Cooper one's going to be like the twenty fifth inning now for the raiders. So Reggie McKenzie's thrown over his great. Wow. That's. You ain't right. Oh, by the way, speaking of GM's, like one of our favorite things ever. And I only think about this 'cause TJ warned get fined fifteen thousand dollars. Remember when Mr. mcdonagh got fired at the beginning of the year for the Phoenix Suns? Yeah. The sun's Jim. Yeah. And like get outta here. You you can't watch this son team all year man, is he liked the happiest dude in the world just to get his cash and get out of dodge and not have to pay attention. Man, hot Davidge, everyone in the west fourteen out of the fifteen won't want to give a night. Well, the kings the clippers Utah Denver the warriors Spurs Phoenix wolf man that team you see those two first quarters last week whenever down like thirty eight to seven and forty six to three. I mean, you just because I don't want to get that stink on me. I just look at at Suns final scores. I started to look at Phoenix Suns box scores. I mean, man, you know, I don't want to take that home and get my family infected with that. I mean, the early first quarter leads even to attack via Loa was like damn it seems to getting off to a good start your ability to weave within normal. Calm will what passes for normal conversation with us? But we within normal conversation. We're having to to bring in either an Alabama slam or giant slam. I mean, I it is it man. It's like looking at a fine painting. It's beautiful. I I don't understand it. But for some reason, it's making me feel things. I'm just amazed. How you can constantly do that. I just know every Vegas bent nose in the world was betting. Bama. First half over. Like building beach house is based on it. I never I never saw. I've never seen a college or pro team just crush in curbs not teams in the first half of every game. They played for nine straight weeks, the Vegas. Couldn't make those first half lines. No big enough for Bama. It was just like oh album, given Twenty-three it'd be forty eight to nothing at halftime. Like, they just killed people. We got a lot to get into. No, Andre Gonzala tonight. Will the warriors have to face the claw, Kyrie Irving, Kawhi Leonard? He is a game time decision. We will get into that any news. We get on him..
