"Won or No. Without Ben Simmons. What the Portland Trail Blazers are sitting in the ninth position. However, their lead for that ninth spot after yesterday's lost to the Clippers is just 1/2 game over Red Hot Phoenix and San Antonio. We got the Spurs New Orleans is only one game back of the ninth position. Sacramento is to back off the ninth position, but the Kings are dormant. Sacramento is eliminated with either a loss or a Portland win today. Got it all. Crease. Coming up at the half Spurs and the pelicans.

That's it, and the regular season is complete with call dispersing a pelican. We go to the field house in Orlando alongside PJ Carlesimo here, Sean. Gavin. Thank you.

Thanks for having us alongside Welcome into the N B. A on ESPN radio with PJ Carlesimo. I'm showing Kelly And coach. I know that we're kind of kind of building up the attention here between these two teams because we're looking at it as an elimination game, even though it's technically isn't But really, when you look at all that, with Kevin Winter just broke down a loss today virtually eliminates either side. There's no question about it, Sean. I think, although the 16 all kind of feel like they're on life support, and they know it It's day today, and they're all looking at what's happening in the other team's. You can't Memphis in Portland can control their own destiny. Anybody else is dependent to an extent at somebody else, and Kate up made a really good point. You don't know what you're going to face in those games, 67 and eight. All these teams have three games left and whether their opponents are going to be playing for seating position resting guys for the playoffs. We're not happy with the way they're playing and really getting after it to get ready for the playoffs, So AH, lot of question marks all you could do take care of your own business. What do you want to do with the Zion Williams and storyline this afternoon? Okay. First of all, I love scene in play in person again. It's only the third time I've seen him playing person. I'm gonna be anxious to see how many minutes he plays. I'm going to be anxious to see the little things. There's no question about his rebounding and what he could do, but I want to see whether he gets up and down the floor. What he does defensively and.

NBA Campus Intel: Lakers' Offensive Woes Continue in the Bubble

"Thing about the bubble is I think it's GonNa. Be Really hard to execute your primary offense. If you will 'cause is way more indepth scouting of every team because you can literally go and see those teams in the bubble and they're all on TV and you have plenty of time to. Track things and check things out may make for uglier place more physical playoffs where these games, the defense sometimes is optional for much of the game. But I I guess I'm not a sold in Lakers and clippers and bucks even though I still think the Lakers clippers and bucks will be the Ford. Three of the fourteen remaining obviously the one thing with it's it's interesting as Ben? Simmons tweaks his knee right where you start to think to yourself wait I thought that that Joel embiid was going to be the injury plagued. One Simmons was one who had the back back issue before Kovic shut things down and now he tweaks a knee. Meanwhile, you got embiid who doesn't seem to be happy with anybody. Such a talent team but one that doesn't seem to have the ability to kind of get right but dude embiid is so talented. WHOA. So crazy talented I do think generally in the NBA now the jazz shake Milton playing the point gives them a viable scoring weapon I still like him on not nearly as much if Ben Simmons but you know they do al Horford but it would. It feels like it would kill there. Any chance to come out of the east. If you don't have been Simmons,

I'm a big time fixer fan, and I've been a fan for a long time. Long time and a couple of years ago, I was confident. That this team could possibly make it to the Eastern Conference finals. Possibly We were looking that way, But now I'm beginning to think that the team that we have right now currently Ben Simmons, Andrew here, but even if he's in the lineup I'm beginning to think that maybe the best we can do it. Maybe 40 45 went team that can barely get out of first round. I'm not confident that we can get out of first round even this year are not buying the lineups with Tobias Harris and Al Horford. Maybe a little shake. Milton, Alec Burkes action, You know, buying that? Nope. Not me. Not not not to get out of the first round. I'm just not buying me, indeed is great. Simons Simons, at least is a good player. I could see him. Maybe winning a championship. Maybe someday, but The team that we have now and the way we're playing, even with Simmons on the floor. I'm not confident that we can get out of first round of the playoffs. I'm hope I'm wrong, But I'm just not comfortable don't like what I'm seeing right now. Thank you. I feel bad. This is the last thing you needed was the injury You wanted to see him develops. You're hoping that guys use the three months toe add to their game and you're seeing that with some players.

"Other wizards lost again to the Philadelphia seventy. SIXERS affiliate takes that one, one, seven, ninety, eight, also the big news from that game scholars. You know it's not that Philly won the game I anticipated that that would happen of the big news was that their star guard or I. Guess. Now, if their star power forward, Ben Simmons left the game in the third quarter with an injury to his left, knee. Yes. So they already got. GOT 'EM. Orion. A said, it was clear I. Don't understand this one because it doesn't like something happened, and when you come down and really you didn't get hit I, maybe got hit a couple possessions go and he finally felt at that point. That's a scary moment for Philadelphia because you know non contact injuries to the knee like I'm nothing he towards ACL I. Don't think he did that at all but I just I I do think that you know Know Ben Simmons had the injury with the back. He's come back. He's had this like a weird year. That's like, I think now I'm looking at the heat, I'm looking at the Pacers and the Philadelphia Seventy sixers don't that would be the team that I think like Boston or even I never going to go to Milwaukee and probably not gonNA go to Toronto. But Boston. Miami Indiana are probably trying to figure out a way to play the sixers. sixers. Get the win on. Wednesday night, but they have not looked great in the restart. So for Joel. EMBIID was the best player on the floor for the Phillips filled up seventy sixers. He finished that game with thirty points. Eleven rebounds, three assists, three steals two blocks, his usual stat sheet stuffing performance affiliate. But the big news as we mentioned is the injury to Ben Simmons A, you mentioned scale the initial return for PHILEAS. Good. But I? I agree they have to play a lot better. They have to look a lot better if they're going to have a chance to make some noise in the eastern conference playoffs, especially Scout Given that their first round playoff matchup is now looks like it's GonNa be one of these three teams, Boston Miami or Indiana

I always driving off the cliffs. Nick Nolte mug shot. And then my favorite This probably my favorite. Massive head wound, Harry Which was the old Dana Carvey sketch on SNL since the guy he was at a cocktail party at someone's house. A massive head wound and he's bleeding. Go look up that one. If you could find that old That old sketch. I'm telling you, we could get real creative with these. And I'm excited about this. I don't know how you make this happen and all these various settings. Picked like the Cleveland Indians were doing it. Bye. They sold out or something which I can't imagine anything selling out at this point. I just have to sell all of them. Just get get the entire stadium full of these cardboard cutouts 855 to 1 to four, CBS. We have bread in Louisiana. Who's next up? Welcome to the show. But how are you doing? It isn't actually opinion. Hakka Mary. I'm not a real goal fan, but I watched golf whenever is the major's okay? It's just I was wondering why the media always wants to put Tiger Woods in there, even if he's like Number 30 like the other day was flirty, and they'll give you two top five in enough Tiger with his number 30 You're not gonna like it. Forget about the man. Why you think they keep doing it that way? You're not gonna like my response to this. Thank you for the call Brett, because Tiger Woods believe it or not. Even when he's clearly not the best in the game, And it was amazing what happened. With the with the Masters win, but You're not gonna like this. He still is. Golf. Tiger Woods is synonymous with golf. He propped up that entire industry. 20 years. Just ask anybody who was ever involved. In a sport of golf anywhere. They will tell you that Tiger Woods made them more money. You've never really seen anything like that other than Michael Jordan. Nike. Anything that Tiger Woods touched turned to gold and so many people I talked about earlier in the show. Phil Mickelson owe some of his fortune to Tiger Woods because when Tiger hit the scene And everybody was watching these tournaments all of a sudden and had never been golf fans before. All the purses went up and all the sponsorship deals, went up in golf and then allowed someone like Phil Mickelson, who's earned On the course something like almost $100 million. He's made farm or off of it. And Phil wasn't the most charismatic figure back today. Now you see With the curtain down. What what Phil is really like this, this new persona these built, but he didn't show that earlier in his career. And yet he made a ton of money. All these guys owe so much of their money to Tiger Woods. You might have people saying negative things about Tiger. Personally, You will not have them say anything about Tiger, the golfer. Because even though he was Crushing them and running away from the field weekend and week out. When he was Chasing Jack Nicklaus and setting records all over the place. Those guys are all still making money. In a lot of it, and the person's continue to grow. The whole world of golf change. I worked at a golf course. And when Tiger Woods was there, all of a sudden you had people show up to golf courses of various races, ethnicities people that you just wouldn't Consider we always we think about golf. You think what middle aged white guy Country Club golf. All that stuff that change Tiger change that he had everybody playing golf. All of a sudden people would show up to the golf course with no clubs, no gloves, no tees, no balls. Diego. What do we do like you've never done this before? No, we just really got into the game because of Tiger Woods. And that had such a dramatic effect that all of a sudden all the supporting good stores that huge golf section's You notice what? You don't see it. These places now huge golf section's They're gone. They're totally gone and what Nike get out of the game of golf altogether. And now the whole sports changed and you know, part of that is because we don't Unfortunately, and I love golf, and I worked in a course for 10 years. Unfortunately, people just don't have five hours six hours to spending a weekend playing 18 holes. Just kind of sad. Cause I love golf, and the course is just going to a great old course with tradition. It's amazing. But now these owners are finding out Man. It's really tough to keep these golf course is alive. Just cost too much money, and people have too many other alternatives. Too many things to do think it's sad, but that's why that's why they're always gonna cover Tiger until he's done and it was sobering to hear Tiger yesterday he basically admitted. That back in the day when he was dominating. You know, he was winning by Say what? The cut line from the winning total was like 12. Okay, now it's down to like seven. It's harder to make the cut now and so many guys are driving it way past Tiger. Things have changed dramatically in that sport. All right. We got time for one more call. Let's go, too. Diedrich in North Carolina about you finish us off. What's up, man? Yeah, man. Thanks for taking my call. I'm a big town Sixers fan and I've been a fan for a long time.

"This six years moving up three spots from number ten last week to number seven this week perplexes me what did the Sixers do they increase their chances now this is power rankings which isn't exactly the same as handicapping chances to win championships but they go pretty much hand in hand are you telling me signing Ryan broke off this Australian three point shooter who's a liability on defense and was out there on the scrap heap the Dallas Mavericks who are having a pretty darn good season thought so highly of him did they release them and the Sixers pick him up off the scrap heap that he's a difference maker I get a date Ben Simmons now looks good in one hundred percent healthy and should be good to go but they did a power ranking just last week so what transpired in this last week did move the Sixers up in this one individual's estimation tell me nothing happened the ticket didn't add again other than Ryan Bocaue broke off which I don't think he's gonna get minutes here at all he's I think more of a safety net than anything else it may I. Kate Middleton who really open some people's eyes in the last month of the season before they shut it down or for Concord my eyes can't throw the ball in the ocean then yeah this guy is there just in case to be able to potentially step in but if the Sixers are healthy and have the players that they've had on the roster all year I don't think this guy ever gets off the bed so what was it did it would lift the Sixers up in anyone's if the

The way they came back with his second team and with low mansion France says, I think is looking pretty good for the Clippers. You kinda like the Cubs and Ben Simmons. I mean, do the Sixers have the There's not a Desi but the bad luck. To the two superstars him an Ambien and they've gotten quiet issue of interest. They got more injured than I have at once or they. I mean, I'm tired. Honestly, I'm tired of it all. I'm tired of that toxic cocktail. Thanks for your call, and I'm very, very tired of the bartender. I'm tired of the whole indeed. Simmons garbage. Ah, and I, honestly I'm tired of the bartender in bread Brown. Who? What was the old girlfriend of Ah, Aaron Rodgers. And I know the list is getting long. The one who did Olivia Munn She's done a commercial on for the dog poo, Pap. It was the dog walking app not on poop. The dog walking app. I wouldn't hire Brett Brown to walk my dog. Nicky Falls. If she needed to be walked to go and take APU. I wouldn't trust bread Brown with that. Let's put it that way. There may be a little harsh, but it's how I feel. How I feel. Wag. He could not was out in his wag. Yeah. And it and look at even marks where your dog pooped. I think that was the strangest commercial I've ever seen. It's like one of the strangest things I've ever seen. I love her. You all you love her because she's like a nerd to shins like Star wars until they dress up and everything. So does that That's what I need. I need a woman like that. Does that make you believe that? You'd have your shot. It? Absolutely. Is that what you think? Because seriously if she's into nerdy things You're just the next step. You're just the two legged You're just a two legged version of the nerdy things. Just if it is run into that you are the two legged version. What I tell you, Anthony, tell you over and over again. Just don't don't rush. Don't rush, it'll? I don't think you're going to meet your bride on a on a dating app. So I've told him And I told you that one before. Ah, yes, the Bumble bee show. You've never told me that before I have. I think I have that you don't think we have you written down every pearl of wisdom that I've given you about life. Where can I came in this one? Ok, You're not going to find your spouse on a dating app. Not on one of the ones that are the hook up Paps. Let me tell you that that's the worst thing in the world. Let me just give you that assurance that that's the worst thing in the world. And I'm very, very glad that I didn't grow up in an era where that was That was plentiful. Cause I would have been more distracted in life than I already am. But if you're looking for your spouse, if you really do think about yet, don't be on one of the hookup, APS. Because every time you look in her eyes, you're gonna be wondering how many times did she swiped right with somebody else? I mean, that makes sense. Right? Anthony makes sense, right? If you're on the Bumble Bee. How many times was she sting in somebody else? I mean, right? And actually just got a new Ah, being the high of this morning. Really? Tell them Give me a B. Give me a a brief thumbnail sketch. What are her attributes? Although I got to get the profile that the attributes Cause we did of the funny story when Anthony was visiting in at Lauren, Tina? Yeah, John costumey. I cost you because this young lady Reached out to Anthony Piano on the Bumble Bee. So she stings you is that sort of the thing she stings you. She invites you in shit by Jenner. Hi. And she said hi. And what do you do in later And then I told you that she was actually someone that worked in our industry in the Atlanta area. And John Psycho. She'll know who I am. Tell her that you're a two brains game with me. So I say she's let the Braves game with John Kincaid and then get back to the hotel. A few hours later, you go check the messages and she's you deleted it. She, Andrea. She had deleted it. She ran from that one. For God's sakes. I know who she hangs out with, for God's sakes. If she's worried about being associated with May she obviously is worrying about the wrong things. My gosh. So just think of it that way. You're not going to find your spouse on the dating app. If you do just realize Not only were you there trolling for things she was there trolling for things. And how long was she having more success than you were? Just saying may not be something you want to dio might not be something you want to let me get to my closing arguments.

"With the first pick in the two thousand sixteen NBA Draft The Philadelphia Seventy sixers select Ben Simmons Ben Simmons was the first overall pick in twenty sixteen at the time when he was coming into the League what did people think of him and his strengths and weaknesses people were Ben Simmons like the next Great Basketball Prospect Tim Bon temps is an NBA writer for Espn. I mean whether you go back to Lebron James whether you go back to Kobe Bryant into what are you go back to Tim Duncan he was looked at like that kind of player he's a big time perhaps that has full vision he can pass out of the post he's also shown to be a big time rebounded when he get the defensive rebound he can rip and go and take it in the open floor and complete a playing in transition as a point guard would he upgrade constructive basketball player out of clay create this guy that you would want to have you're going to go on NBA Two K.. And create a my player right you would probably create a six ten guy who was really fast who could dribble who could do basically everything on the court and like say an MBA touquet you do that you run out of point at some point right and like for Ben Simmons ran out of points on the shooting that was the only thing he was holding him back for being the perfect basketball prospect where people concerned about that back then they were to a degree doc in today's NBA where we're talking about pace and space that was coming off two year when the warriors one seventy three games with steph curry hitting four hundred three's right three point shooting has never been important we have seven footers like Brook Lopez going from shooting Nantou shooting basically only three pointers right it is certainly something that people had concerns about that was this Guy able to credibly impact the game from the perimeter right if this was saying nineteen ninety five and Ben Simmons was coming to get any played way probably where longer bag your shorts at being the nineties would win any of this be a big deal at all I would say it would be a big deal to a degree like if you go back to save Magic Johnson who people like to compare Bentiu now right he was another guy that came in the league and he basically didn't make a three for the first years of his career and eventually he became a good shooter Jason Kidd and other guy that early in his career he was called Ason kid because he didn't have J. Right that was the joke about Jason Kidd until he became one of the top ten all time and three point makes of his career because he eventually added to his game so people I think would look at Ben in the same form as those guys but the thing that also connects those guys is that they're all you know hall of Fame Level Talents who rebelled impact the game in so many ways that even though they couldn't make shots they were so obviously you know hugely important impactful player finally so ben comes into the League everyone knows this is the whole in his game the first couple of years does even try to take a three Barely I would say this his rookie season he's instantly great he wins rookie of the year the sixers make the playoffs then at least rock into wind around fifty games the process is finally worked right Ben still doesn't shoot he takes I think a handful of threes four or five doesn't make any symmetry tempting three would have been the first of his career how about that so Ben Simmons over four from the this season when did it first start becoming almost a meme in the NBA world. That Ben Simmons can't shoot whether getting the plows the first time against the Boston Celtics in the second round in Eastern Conference playoffs in two thousand eighteen the Celtics just back away from Ben and say basically Bernard dare you to shoot what do the playoffs do they exposure we this is and Bendon rack rate he didn't play well he really struggling series he didn't really know how to kind of handle that defense and back it was almost like there was a moat between Ben and the Celtics you can see how much room they are giving Ben Simmons they basically just stood in the paint and all the all the hardwood between the three point line and the paint was just sitting there at Ben just gotTa have the ball and they're like all right what are you GonNa do and he didn't ruin ought to do the bounce and knocks it out of bounds Boston ball nothing going right for Ben Simmons almost kind of pain Foale to watch those games because you kinda you just were watching it going man like at some point he's got to figure this out have you ever been in the presence of Simmons when he attempts and outside shot I have a have a couple of times I mean it looks like anything else like his shot doesn't look that awful you know like that game against the Lakers last year Simmons Serving Out Front Lebron Ling all the way back in the keys daring him to shoot Simmons does and you could hear the fans can arise it's it's a rare occurrence just as third three-point attempt this year just rimmed out everyone at presser changing defensive play or something right and then you know after the game it's all anybody wants to talk about right I remember Joel embiid unsurprisingly chiming in we did we tell him gotta should it a man there's nothing wrong with that I hope daddy keeps shooting.

"My point is the man upstairs gave him a six ten and a half. He's clearly worked at his game. We wouldn't be this good but it does signal something that he did not he has a huge hole in his game and didn't work on it. If you were if you were a coach and he came back and didn't work on it like is that like it's hard to make people that aren't willful. Willful guys are grinders or they're not like I my daughter and I were talking about yesterday and she asked me she's like what what's your favorite quality for. You Dad and I said what what what do you like about. You and I said I I'm. I'm a grinder. I'm willful. I put my mind to stop. I want to be a good skier. I'm just going to be obsessed about it for two years <hes> whether or not the good quality or not great quality. It's my quality so the point being is. Nobody taught me that I've been like that. Since I was seven it does worry me about Ben Simmons his brother brother. You can't shoot and shooters league. I don't even care if you're a great shooter. It doesn't put any effort into that would worry me. We'll worry me too but see the thing is is the reason why we see so much of his flaws on his outside is because he has Joel embiid Joel embiid's packing the paint so if he had if Ben Simmons had all shooters around him you wouldn't really worry about his shot so much because just like the Brooklyn series when when Joel embiid was out he was so good lanes and that's my loans are open so they add Al Horford and when I look at the construction of Philadelphia this doesn't it's like Westbrook Harden. I can say hall of Famer. I don't think it works together. This is part of it like when magic broke into the League had Kareem will magic it was great because magic start the fast break Corinne could be the trailer so Kareem ensure. They were great half court team. Magic made sure they were a great transition. Exact magic didn't need Kareem to run with him right so it worked both ends the Lakers were the best half court team and with magic. They were the best transition team in the N._B._A.. Today can run the floor but embiid clogging the lane really inhibits what Simmons can do that. That's my point he would be he would be great on a small team of shooters. There you go if if you spread them. If you can put shooters around him you really see his flaw but because he has Joel embiid because he has a Horford Horford spot up now so which is great for him so he can kind of open up the lane a little bit for for Ben but I just want him to really take this person because he could be one of the greatest of all time if you get at least fifteen footer in the consistent one by the way we don't have much time to watch the tennis match yesterday Federal Love. I Love Tennis. You play tennis I do. We got to play a little bit. We got a great player a my great love playing. I'll beat both it'll be though I'm sure of that really okay. It wasn't incredible tennis. It would be like having consistently but you'll be both of us yeah okay. Does he play college tennis. You kinda nervous..

"But he offers no threat to shoot. And so this is this big debate the tapping within Sixers fandom is whether or not Ben Simmons as the unicorn that he is makes up for the fact that Ben Simmons as one of your primary ball handlers doesn't space the floor were you at that game. Yeah. I was Sixers. What was your take on on? I think you're not gonna find the screaming for me I legitimately want to like scream out into the void. And be like do we realize that like Simmons is averaging more points, more rebounds and just slightly less number of society? I'd last year shooting better from the field. Like, I don't I get the. The whole crisis with him not being a threat and data affecting how the offense runs, but I think it's more about the rest of the Rosser than it is about him shooting. But it is very like fun and interesting and far more. I guess controversial to focus on the fact that is intriguing, but I I think I think it's not that big of an issue right now as much as we're probably making it out to be. I don't know I've said this in the past. But I just feel like it's such a waste like I think Ben at his best last season was top five watch in the NBA. Here's the way that he could just reek havoc on the core. Take it from one end and just like dunk on everybody on the other end is very Westbrook esque in terms of just like his style of play. And we were talking about this before it gets under control though. Yes. The thing. That's so that's so amazing about him. Is that he would like, yes, he could go coast to coast and Tomahawk, but he would also go coast to coast, and then pull it back out and find JJ on on the on the wing. You know what I mean like so much poise? It's almost like a robot created by ROY. Ross. Yes. In his image shoots. His Franken sign or something. I mean, they're of is a similar issue where his style of play is creating all these like kind of auxiliary concerns that like in a vacuum. She might be their best player. But with the guys he's paired round like it's really interesting the kind of tension it creates especially in the Eastern Conference, which even though the bucks are there. Even though the raptors there, I still feel like at the Sixers put it all together if they get some guys around these three guys like I I still think they're pretty dangerous team. Specially if the Celtics can't get their shit together. Do you have any confidence that the season like this can contend as we thought they would kind going into it? I don't know if I have confidence because I don't necessarily think we're gonna get an alias ova Nabil in LA, sir. To us on a platter. Like we did last year. Right. I would say that. I I blame more the empty cupboard of assets and reliable backup players than I do Ben Simmons. And it's not just Elise over Belen Ellie we're talking about. Now, we're all star..

"Ben simmons you're saying to yourself that wasn't embarrassing weekend i mean colin he had one point in game two it was all over the internet it was really funny the legendary picture of wilt chamberlain holding up the card with a hundred points everybody put it out there ben had one i got to admit it one the internet game three he took a very very ill advised shot but i want to take you back to lebron james eighth year he was in the finals against dallas he was devoured in game four yet eight points in the fourth quarter of that finals against dallas where lebron and miami came in as heavy favorites joy taylor was covering that series lebron shot thirty three percent and averaged three points in the fourth it was humiliating people mocked lebron and since then three titles to mvp's six finals that never leaves you that one point game and that means on the internet will never leave ben simmons and aaron rodgers dropping in the first round it never leaves you and getting fired and getting dumped i speak from experience i get up in the morning think of it often and it's why i worked so hard let me double down on this ben simmons kid you don't think he's good let me remind you that magic johnson was once called tragic that lebron is eighth year had an absolutely anemic an embarrassing and humiliating finals let me remind you that russell westbrook in this last series in his tenth year embarrassed himself in the organization in oklahoma city.
