"A it a crack house. I think actually it was the trade that put him in the cracker like. He went into the emotional tailspin after the Tracy ever, Nick. New York's from Davis was in the Nixon his the exploded. So Eddy curry second worst trait ever. Now. I mean that was like I talked about this already. But where do you put the mellow treat in the constellation of this stuff because I really feel like that trade kicked off seven years of of awfulness, and that is has essentially led to this. It's been nineteen years. You're right. It's seventy five years of awfulness. He however that was a bad trait as well. Especially considering like, I dare you'd to sign with Brooklyn. And we'll pick you up and free agency. They had that option. Yeah. At the same time. They did get mellow back. Who's coming back in this deal? Dennis with junior and de'andre Jordan. And it's terrible. There's no play. There's no one coming back. They're getting nothing, but cap space would you to the edge to give it in a room was like this is my town now and like really own being Nick he always wanted to play here. I can't wait to watch him a give NS cancer level. Oh, this is more more run for cancer now right to waive Andrei ended. Now, what if somebody needs to break Dennis juniors leg accidentally can't play for the rest of the season? They need to keep tanking. We didn't talk about this. But this is an unintended consequence of this trade, so many bioch- is I've been the next three guys who if you're just adding them for two months for a million dollars. Could if you can be dander, Jordan, actually, try again, that's not a bad tenth, man. Fucking words. Both of them Wes Matthews as a tenth man is bad. He's your man is bad. But as your tenth man now. And then Kanter I still believe in as a playoff guy in the right match-ups coming in for five minutes and three of us. Yeah. And then who the balchunas marriage if they don't trade you mean in the league. Yeah. There's there's a lot of dudes this year. So all these teams that are like, oh, well, they're only like five guys six guys. I think it's like an Sova Belen Elliot's situation with Philly last year where you just plucking dudes. And all of a sudden, I. The bench. Jason is one here this. I don't wanna hear it. The knicks. Oh liars, there's straight out liars. They lied about. What the leak is a total lie. They use woes to leak this absolutely spurious story about KP getting mad. It's bullshit. Oh, that was the last type ago, this Woche just have too much power. Now. The can you imagine in politics if there's just one Woche, and you just controlled all the formation that everybody read at all times. This is basically what's happening thirty first franchise. Yeah. When joe? I was gonna we thought Shams was going to, you know, kind of close the gap. But it's not it is not happy. Not even the power of whoa, JR. Could overwhelm the next stupidity though. I mean, there's just this is not whoa. Just fall. This is like a bunch of people who don't know what they're doing and have known what they're doing for twenty five years James Dolan has given us zero evidence that he knows what he is doing.

He's like a, you know, a great if he's your bench in. He's a great thing moody is still there. He's fun.

"Any? That's what's that. That was McBride used to care about like, he's really following LeBron half, LeBron less money. And now, then he got two point was like, look, I want the most money I could get katie's doing the same on the clippers having to play across. The bronze half came out. Christopher's aren't stick around which six are all star shouldering all the blame for the recent loss to the sound success. Moving onto the Sixers. Would you say about K D got have thick skin? Exact Sixers lost brutal mugging. Onto the Celtics on Christmas day. Joel Embiid had a great game on paper finishing with thirty four points and sixteen rebounds. But the all star not as great a game on the court down the stretch just four shots in the last seventeen minutes and be taught about what went wrong at the end of the game. Like could done all. Being the ball all the body five minutes before thin in Nova, Tom. So in those situation, I gotta show up. But then also I got to be putting the license Tristesse to be able to say man, I wasn't in the license ration-. So. Like, I could have done more. We lost put this heavily on me because I could've all. And the way I was playing on that could go on me. So. A lot of one on one. What would WC Ming on the fourth dribbles? But I kind of find a way to adjust who bad just be myself. I Chris what are the Sixers need to do to get these three. Joel Embiid, Butler and Simmons to all coexist and be successful at it. He makes an interesting point. He had thirty four points at Christmas day games. Only four in the fourth quarter and overtime. They have a problem. And it's that he they couldn't gar him down low. He's absolutely right. I mean, he was just killing him down go to deal. Right. Right. But in down the stretch in the fourth quarter. The problem is that Joel is unstoppable down there. But Ben Simmons can only score in two ways. Either drive in the basketball or he gets a lot of stuff at the real post ups or flashes beneath the rim in that area. And incidates NBA is hard to have two guys to down low. So what they've done is. They put 'em beat out by the three point line. And he's only like twenty something percent shooter from three thirty percent, whatever it is. But they've done that just to stretch the floor. So it is a challenge. This is a team that really is built for yesteryear because none of their big three kit, really shoot. I mean narrow K butlers okay shooting, but none of them are shooters look at all the big three's in recent memory. Ray? The Boston Celtics Ray Allen was a great shooter in Miami. They may buy become a really good shooter. That's how it's done Golden State. Obviously. Right. That's how it is nowadays and San Antonio when they ran through Miami and twenty four teams they had shooters. So I think what they have to do is. They've got a nice big three. They've got to get his might many shooters as they can around which is easier said than done. But I think that's the only it's also why before they had Butler the Belen Elliot's soba dishes at the buyout date last year. We're so key for them because it added shooting to the team. It's one of the reasons why you look at their best three men lineup. The one constant is JJ Renick's in all of them like JJ Radic because. Of the shooting that he adds and being still at this advanced age and knocked down one of the best shooters and basketball. But it is. I mean, I will give credit on this. It's been Simmons problem right now, it's been Simmons. And I don't want to harp on it like we did yesterday. But it's true. He didn't add something to his game. And because of that you're in a spot where you have to ask yourself. Should we try to stagger Simmons in and bead as much as we can have have match have lineups of Butler with Embiid Butler with Simmons have JJ out there? Like do something like that. Because there unless in transition been Simmons's awesome as good as anybody in the league. And I think he is a very underrated defender. But as the game slows down when he and Embiid or both out there. It gets congested..

"It's the dust bunnies. Metro Prentice on the lung doesn't run along. The hopes. Then back waxing appointment. He's calling. Well, right now your question, you know, how it works. You give us the topics events. We questions so much hair. Do you question? The Coahuila got lucky if you didn't think the raptors would be that good after getting Leonard, you're wrong. They're five. No, why with some rust on them has still been playing great and last night against the Timberwolves. He proved he has co is in the back of his head. These backdoor cuts. They usually get you. But not if you do that not knowing where the ball is just diving to the floor, not looking his defensive instincts are ridiculous. This team looks phenomenal early on. And this was the team that you figured sort of get it together a lot now that guy still great almost like a combination hockey play soccer player. I'll tell you what he has you hands. And if anybody was going to be a good trade think about it. They traded the Marta Rosena Geck, Hawaii, Leonard and lebrons is out of the conference to Wayne case he should have called and said, I want my old job back better job. Now, you know, what was most I may seem part of that video he smiled where show it to me. Where's that left? You do. I can't even do it. Do you question if metal should be Smythe enough, these the rockets are one in three nobody really notices that Frank. But it's all okay. Because Carmelo had a good game yesterday here he was and he gets really aggressive when he goes and gets rebounds. Who says that every time I don't know who he's telling to get the bleep out of there. I don't know if the opponents or as teammates. But if you're going to do that unless he was talking to the ball. What's he talking to the ball here that does that count as a rebound and a turnover Carmelo actually might take that? Now, I understand how it works. Carmelo has to get blamed for everything, but they did loosen two worlds and opening night. Anthony Davis was standing. Donovan Mitchell was great Chris Paul suspended. James harden got hurt in the game. Don't blame Carmelo for everything. I'm going to stick up for my guy. Leave him alone. That's funny. That's essentially, then about today's show, you know. Selling every day. This your Joe. Mike nearly served four. I'm sure a lot of people are going to find out right now that Marco Belen Elliot's no longer seventy six he is with the Spurs and this one in his game against the Pacers yesterday. He's throwing alleyoop here. Splat bad has happened. Why times in the league? But it never gets old and Margot bell Nellie being the shooter that he is. Of course, put so much touch on that thing that it rolled around and went, oh, he's great Italian. That's what he does shoot. All it goes hand doesn't pass pet shoot. You know, what he said that that plane loops? Out here. The the dead. Do you question sweater is half accounted for these this is Franks happy place? It soccer all normally we just make fun of it. Here we go to war as taking a free kick against interim allows Joe. He does. I like that. You probably. They jumped goes low to block it. Didn't even see that. From the other angle that is genius. That is why Leonard like defensive instincts. They're not looking sliding on the ground that do something. And it's progress when Luis Suarez plays into talian, and it doesn't bite one of them. That's actually good to soccer jokes. You wouldn't need that gun of defense. If you had these guy had goal..

"The minimum for two years second year know nonguaranteed great piece of business for brooklyn and it makes me wonder you know like a why is player x so much better than trayvon grandma i'm not saying he's certain but a lot of these guys aren't and so that's a great deal for the nets and a gun i think there are teams that it's likely at the minimum of the nets had a little bit more space than that i don't think we've seen the actual number reported though you can correct me if i'm wrong there i don't believe i've seen it for him or for napier maybe than it was napier who got more than the minimum if if it was either them but nonetheless you know second year nine guarantee for graham that's pretty good if they'd given him a team option instead an end then you know they could have made him a restricted free agent again next year but probably better to just get him for that second year at the moon than he'll be unrestricted at the end of that and in they might have actually if they really wanted to be creative any would've agreed on the nonguarantee end player option by doing the macomb nonguaranteed this year and but have the guaranteed ap like one day after he signs a contract so that then you could make him nonguaranteed and the team out next year in casey blows up you can make him restricted but again very little chance of that probably better just have on that second year nine guarantee for the moon and yeah i mean this is it just really surprised me i thought trivia on graham could get something along the lines of like you know a couple years for three billion a year and it was surprise to me that he had so little interest and i and i'm not saying he's like some great player or something like that like he hasn't he shot at while on very limited attempts he plays hard not really skilled with the ball in his hands but he's the type of clay that can maybe be molded into a valuable rotation beef because there just aren't that many guys out there like emotion any kind of shooting potential and who play hard and have the ability to play defense on the wings so i'm just i it's like why someone wouldn't just all right you know we'll pay this guy more than what he's shown so far in its career but you know with the janssen he could work outside i like this for brooklyn as i liked the napier contract yeah i mean i i don't i'm not critical of the glen robinson signing but giving glen robinson the money doing graham was even better is glen robinson last year and robinson is more explosive as an athlete but i think grandma is better defensively than robinson and it's the same thing that was true with james ennis everybody talks about and because it's damn true about how wings are so valuable in the league and yet for whatever reason certain guys just falls through cracks and i i haven't heard anything in terms like character issue or something like that that would lead to it so yeah i mean i it's it's frustrating and that sort of way just because i think a lot of teams left a good player on the table for for no good reason yeah and yet teams just take chances on guys who just don't have the potential to be modern players to be playoff players marco belen elliot's getting two years at six million a year and ilyasova who a player that we liked but not at the money that he got from the bucks in this market a couple of examples and indiana not getting a three defender when have gotten somebody for the mid where was indiana on james at us with the money that they had available yeah they had this they had to sign a second backup center as much as we like quitting they had to sign a second backup center instead of going after somebody who could have been in the idea that you'd want to have colic win over james zana's sleep that kyle quinn we get more money on a one year deal in james ennis is just really surprised me and yeah and it's he made up be awesome but he's just he's shown the ability.

"Fit with embiid so yeah i don't see restricted free agency is really being an option and there isn't even really somebody that would make sense as a scientist because again all these options are open to the set your they could go in to for directions but there isn't really anybody that i see as good fit there and as you said they don't really have any new expenses kicking in twenty thousand nineteen so it would be really really nice because then depending on what happens with simmons and charge those guys are a extension eligible in two thousand eighteen but then we'll be getting raises in twenty twenty that really is a user lose it summer for them and those can always be perilous but if you don't really have any good options at twenty eight that can still be better than what is on the table you know it's funny i was thinking that this would be a really sexy off season preview now as we get into that actually i don't see as many options as thought i did where you're now going through the process i did writing off season preview for the route like we thought it would be a lot more interesting at the start of the year obviously but it just it's all our wildest dreams wanna go there george wanna go there no okay and then you know it'd be interesting to see certainly could use their full midlevel exception even if they bring back rettig they can use their b b as well you know we'll see what kind of demand there is for bell belen elliot will see kind of demand there is also you'd think both those guys liked it there might wanna come back they'll need some sohan at backups that i don't know if they want to just straight up roll with rashawn home soon they might want to go with a someone who can shoot would be really helpful to play with ben simmons and say stagger embiid quite a bit he'll they'll probably want a few more kind of old head vets in the locker room as well maybe they could bring back johnson but just at a much lower number is there anyone.

"Seamlessly for radic earliest over for charlotte but i'm just always been so impressed with them and i think that is that is come out in the in the series and making the decision between mcconnell on faults i think is is an interesting hypothetical but thus far has told toe that line effectively in a way that their core players that really make the difference i mean notably embiid simmons and i would say radic also are just always insulated by a group of players that fill in the gaps effectively and i think that's gonna be the difference in the series yeah and there's two different philosophies kristen i talked about this crossover episodes we skill but do you want players on your bench that have similar skill sets to your starters or do you want guys who have complementary skill sets and with the sixers doesn't matter to belen elliot's in there or red x in their better charges in there so in there a big difference from simmons but when you have a guy but for number one overall draft already maybe a documentary door being one of the ten minutes players league learn how this you get there you're gonna have a drop off there and same with him bead but two through four on that roster they're interchangeable almost doesn't matter who's then probably matters more on defense a possessions into the game to get you guys i little bit quicker but i for me when i watched game four i'd looked like brett brown brett brown felt like they had to have this game to win the series and i think i'm guessing it what he's feeling is if they go to their games they had been bead they're gonna fill a sense of we're better than them.
