"Sixers picked up a very much needed win at home last night. Albeit over over the Chicago Bulls Joel Twenty eight points. While Ben Simmons a triple double PHILEAS dominated bad teams all season probably because they're bad teams twenty six against teams below five hundred twelve and fifteen against teams above five hundred all right nick if you had to choose. Would you rather build a team around. Joel embiid or Ben Simmons because we are getting to the point where it seems like. You're going to have to choose breezy if you told me. When there's the four seconds left in game seven of the Eastern Conference semifinals and the sixers are down to Jimmy Butler or streaming up court seemingly force overtime? Or maybe pull up take a three two win the game right there. That nine months later we'd be talking about breaking up the sixers Butler would-be gone that the J. Radical be gone that now we're talking about which who can you keep Benner Joel. I'd say you're crazy like this is going to be filling Milwaukee in the east for the next decade. But the way phileas played on the lack of maturity shown by their two stars and the lack of cohesiveness which with those guys on the court at the same time makes this legitimate question and to me. The easy answer is I'd rather build around him beat. I'd Rather Trade Simmons. I think that embodied while I I don't think he's reached his full. Potential is certainly closer and a guy who has shown the ability if he can stay in shape and if he can get some some of the NBA maturity stuff better and check. He can be a dominant force in a league that is going small having the biggest strongest potentially one of the US guys in the League can be enormous benefit when he's as Nimble as Joel has shown the ability to be. Meanwhile Ben Simmons if I show you video of him and I don't tell you what year it is. You have no idea what what you're watching whether it's first you've been seven second. You're Ben Simmons this year Ben Simmons. He's the skill set that made him a tremendous rookie. Makes him disappointing at this point in his career to me. There's no way around that. Would that said I do think he is trade value. I do think there'd be teams that want him teams that don't have the big man clogging the paint like what he could do. So I would if I have to trade one of them. Howard I'm trading been because I do think he has enormous value and I'm keeping Joel? I can't disagree. I can't disagree and by the way if anybody thinks. Oh It's premature or are these people already talking about trying to break these guys up or the media's trying to let me tell you something this is the conversation around the entire NBA. This is what other teams are talking about to. That those two do not click well together that the sixers sixers have hit a ceiling and that it's inevitable whether it's this summer or Bhai next year's trade deadline whatever it's going to be. The clock is ticking on Simmons and NBA. Now that's ultimately up to the sixers to decide not all of the chatterboxes around the NBA. But that is the buzz around the league and to your point. Nick I lean. I'm beat also. It's not just the makeup. The fact that he's a seven footer. WHO's got some guard steals? It could do damage inside and out in the power and the Nimble nece all of that. It's that Joel embiid cares. I liked seeing tears from Joel. EMBIID's is after they were eliminated by the raptors. I like the passion that was behind that now if you want to say yeah. But he didn't follow up he didn't come back in the best shape or he didn't find. I get that he cares. I still I look at Ben. Simmons and I don't know sometimes he. He is so just just kind of emotion less. I don't even know how he just just very stoic out there and that doesn't necessarily you mean you don't care right. Kawhi Leonard showed us you can be still and still have a great passion. Burning Inside is also shown us how much he cares every single year of his career. Yes coming back with a new skill or an improved skill or investigate police players to us we. You can tell us you care through your emotions you have to show us you care or through the evolution of your game so to speak and we just haven't made I was Jin remember couple of years ago. I was as big of a Ben. Simmons was because I said we focus the one thing he does poorly instead of all the other things he does great and the argument. Of course he'll get better at that one thing but he hasn't and he maybe he's tried cried to get better in practice but in the games there's been no evidence whatsoever that he has any willingness. Shoot the basketball and that at this point in two thousand twenty. You can't win that way. The thing that concerns me the most nick was earlier. I think it was in this season. Zero preseason where when the subject came up of his refusal to shoot his reticence listens to shoot it was basically. I'm all star like that was an actual exchange that happened. You can't think that way you know we're all talking about for the last few weeks all the lessons. We learned from coby Brian his career. What did Kobe do consistently throughout his career? He worked on his game. He strove to get better and he constantly added things. Nobody can come into this league. No matter how how talented you are and so you know what I'm GonNa Start Laurels. It just doesn't work that way not in the NBA. And we're not in a place in time right now where you're going to have a head coach that's going to force you to do certain things that you don't want to do in the question with his team now becomes what's more likely to happen. Ben Simmons Learns How to shoot or Joel on bead gets in shape that kind of shape. You WanNa see him playing it and I think you guys are both saying Joel. EMBIID is the one. That's most likely I've seen Joylin shape and I think one of the things where I try to be fair with Joel. I'm standing might have some eating habit issues. Whatever that is because he's at injury issues and because he's so big he can't do the regular conditioning guys need to do? He's going to have to at times play his way into shape because he can't do all of the off season things cardiovascular. Wise that you would need to do Rian tiptop shape because he does have to be careful on his lower body in in the lower extremities and him rot running five miles for example takes more than just about any other player in the league other than other than Mirjana Mirjana rich. You know what I mean running five miles because of how big is and so I do get I. Don't WanNa give him say I give him a pass but I understand it. The Simmons stuff's inexcusable. And and and the attitude stuff that you you're much closer league circles than I am but I still hear certain things I mean. People do wonder is Ben. Simmons ends more infatuated with being a star. Then he is with being a star player like that is a real. I don't know been so I can't speak to it. I know that is whether it's true or not. A question people around the League have about an and it's not an unusual. I don't know when Ben Simmons well enough to know either whether that's the case case but it is the case that that happens with NBA players. Right we know that this happens. There are some guys who are more about the lifestyle and the limelight and the payday than they are about a passion for winning and again this goes back to my just distance observation of these two guys. EMBIID has a passion and a caring there that you can see. That's evident. His emotions are on his sleeve. Ben Simmons it does not it makes me wonder one quick. Follow Point because Ben Simmons beyond the trade block this summer. This was one of the reasons that I thought that Golden State trade was such an abomination that if the warriors and up with the number one pick which was the worst record. I know you're far from it. I wonder what Phillies says to Diangelo. Russel in the number pick four can do better you think who can do but I think the sixers can do better if Simmons is on the block. They're going to be able to do better than even that. Okay Fair enough because I think ben actually would fit great in golden state because he doesn't need to shoot because you have all the shooting the world around you and I think de Ngelo Russell be much better fit next to Joel even though Ben might be a better player than de Ngelo Russell. It's just the been simmons comes available. I think there's GonNa be a lot of people feel like we can fix what ails them or. We don't even won't won't even ask him to change because we don't have. Joel embiid clawing pain look. We've done the sixers so many times. Every time we finish I could easily say the same sentence you can count on one hand the amount of time. It's Ben Simmons Simmons's shot a three point shot. What is it three or four more threes than he does.

"Now he's not getting worse. It's getting better seventeen years in the league. He's leading the League in assists Damien Woody. He's averaging twenty five twenty six points a game. He's up there rebounds again at thirty five years old like low management is what it is okay all right like to play the game able this because actually your phone has been blowing up for. What what you said about? Lebron Lakers matched up directly against Janas. How did you neutralize them off? Aw You know the whole season humble about you not want to be defensive player of the year and tonight saw Joel embiid finished with thirty one points and eleven rebounds and last night's win against the box Chennai. Our girl is back with us today. I'm going to start with you. It can impede me the best player in the East Joel. EMBIID could be the best player in the east. Well he be. No because there's Jaanus now you heard it in the Post Game Conference Joel. EMBIID is pacing himself. He got his heart broken in the playoffs. Last season from there from then on he said guess what I want to be available in one one hundred percent in the playoffs. Now we gotta treat on Christmas Day where he bawled out but I think Joel. EMBIID has the long-term vision. Now someone not pacing themselves is Jaanus. Janas has an entire team tailored to his needs. The it's Jaanus and a whole bunch of floorspace Jaanus in a whole bunch of snipers this entire book squad makes makes Janas be able to reach his full potential thirteen guys on the bucks average double digit minutes. If you think about the seventy sixers. They struggle with space. That's that's largely because there are other all star. Ben Simmons SORTA struggle with his perimeter shot. We always count. How many threes he makes sense and so on and so forth now the sixers? They've been shooting the ball where they're coming the office of twenty-one threes in a game tying the franchise record guest things are looking optimistically but the thing is John has that bread and butter of having teammates which which allows him to reach his maximum potential. Offensively Joan beat. They sometimes struggle being able to allow him to dominate the paint. And that's because of the lack of outside shooting as great as indeed wants to be. He's cool he's fine with just being dominant. Maybe defensive player of the year. Come playoff his where he wants to make some noise and they treated Christmas Day like like a playoff game but he is not pacing himself and so far with his team the buck surrounding him with a strong supporting cast that allows him to be the best player. Well I I agree or disagree. He can be if he plays the way that he played yesterday. Okay because I play with a guy by the name of Shaquille O'Neal and no he's not the dominant player. Shaquille O'Neal is but when he gets the ball on the block he can dominate it. Anybody in the eastern conference and his skill level is to where he could step out and shoot a three pointer will so if he comes and plays as the way that he did yesterday with the enthusiasm and you know something approved because definitely he definitely had something to prove plan Janas and the bucks yesterday that that he could definitely be the best player in the Eastern Conference. Now Willie do it. We don't know that because it's consistency has been up and down. He might score thirty two points one game. He might have a game in Toronto where he score any points so Janas is bringing it every night night in and night out. He's he's coming coming with effort energy and all that so but I think if embiid plays with the intensity and the effort that he played with yesterday yesterday he has the ability to be the best player in the Eastern Conference. I definitely think he can be the best player in the Eastern Conference. I think you know when the physical geus match the approach that he had yesterday yeah that combination. He's absolutely the best player in the Eastern Conference and the thing that the jumped out to me was in post game when he talked about how he wanted to be the defensive player of the year to me. That says something. It's one thing we all know the physical physical gifts in the things that he can do from office. You know just offensively where he can do when you talk about being the defensive play here you the grunt work the dirty. Were the things that you gotta do. Haven't taken upon yourself and say you know what I'm GonNa go jaanus who's right now's how's the. MVP It if we if we had to the person he's the MVP the league and to shut him down to frustrate him if Embi he put that type of energy into being the defensive player of the year combined that with the skills that he already has as offers a player. I mean. You're talking about a guy who's seven one that just flawless footwork can go out in the three point line and hit three probably better than John is can. Oh yeah definitely a better than John can bring it. Bring that mentality and saying you know what on the deep end. That's where I really WANNA step up in effect the game if he does dead Eh. Then there's no question in my mind the he's absolutely the best player in the east and also underrating Janas defense. I know he kind of got exposed because they were absolutely absolutely disrespectful to his perimeter even though he's having a strong you know year shooting the ball the three ball. But what you guys are forgetting that the supporting cast matters like you cannot be hampered and by your teammates or teammates need to empower you to play the best game you the best. You're capable of playing if you think about Janas he's surrounded by shooters snipers and there's so much spacing and and they play with pace that plays to his strengths. If you think about George Hill shooting the ball he's giving you the best three point percentage in the NBA. If you think about Khris Middleton he was five or nine nine yesterday thirty one point five nine from three he has guys that know their roles even the one game that you did not play his supporting Catholic. So good that you know. I thought the PELICANS looking to beat them but no instead the bucks were still able to get a win because they had the system now does Philly have the system for Joan bead to maximize his potential not necessarily their best primer shooter. At times is out. Horford or Tobias Harris now Tobias is arnold all his money he just came off like thirty five point game. But you know what Philly he does. They have. Ben Simmons bring up the ball and then get an a pick and roll with Tobias and they treat Tobias like the Guard and Ben Simmons like the Post and guess what happens when Ben Simmons is a post post it infringes on Joel embiid's space. He won't be able to be as productive and that's the struggle. I think one P one thing that people forget is it's so easy for this. Philly team came to galvanize and to really get up for Christmas Day and play. There are a lot of young. We're seeing young stars emerge but there are a lot of young eagles on Philly like Joel. EMBIID Ben Simmons Simmons. They're sort of trying to edge out some territory. Who is the Alpha right? And it's easy to figure that all out on Christmas Day when everybody wants to win. I WANNA see that type of chemistry. How mystery building? It's not necessarily Joel dominating each and every time I wanna see the sixers chemistry being built over the course of the season so that when Joel is pacing himself off and gets to the playoffs. Guess what they can actually do something. They have a lot of questions still to be answered on the perimeter and I think that hinders dwell and be compared to Jaanus who man they already know their system like this is a team that can walk out and win games and I think that's why the sixers win was so impressive but still Y- honest has all the pieces around him for him to continue to expand his game. We're just waiting for the sixers to figure it out so that he can do the same Chennai you mentioned the sixers but Damon. I'll ask you. Do you think the sixers are the biggest biggest threat to the box in the east of course and you saw last night. And this is why I said joy and be could be the best player in the eastern conference authorises that they have the athleticism and they have the players to throw at Janas where they could play one on one. I think what the bucks I do too most teams..

"Two talented. You're Ben Simmons. He's gotTa do that well. There's there's no way around always going to be moved either. He does it in Philadelphia or is going to be shopping. Move or and beat will be shopping move and the problem is if you shot been and move him and bead may not be healthy for years. It's a contract so you got it right now and by the way it's not just going to be the bucks Giannis we're not. I don't believe we can ignore the Celtics. I think we both agree. Kimbe is a better fit Boston than Kyrie. We have to see how Al Horford sits next two fits next to Joel embiid and there is a team that I believe has been building the right way who gives hope to small markets that shows you when you lose a disgruntled star. You can still rebuild them. Be a contender Toronto the Pacers I was yes I he's waiting for you to say that I was just about to say the Pacers lost by like the the raptors third what I'm telling you. The Pacers in the jazz are showing the N._B._A.. Just because a big time superstar doesn't WanNA play for you doesn't take you out of contention the Jazz Lewis Gordon Hayward and and reboot with Mitchell and a well rounded team the Pacers Paul George they've route rebooted with Ola depot and now Brogden and a good team. Can you repeat that statements Knicks to do that your statement you know who's going back to one that lesson who the thunder look at the the thunder. He'll be all right all right before we wrap this discussion. Here's something that might blow your mind on the topic of Ben Simmons Simmons in attempting single field goal outside of the paint against the raptors these past playoffs only one of his one hundred sixteen postseason shots came from outside the paint and he has yet to make a three pointer in his N._B._A.. Career going zero for seventeen so any improvement is good improvement in case you. Let's consider the secret life of the innermost nesting doll living most of her life hyphen dark inside the other nesting dolls.

"I mean, right, which is twenty. Yeah. Kimball might be better than him now. But like who's the best player on the Sixers best? Joel Embiid Flint hands down when beats not healthy who second. Simmons. Yeah. No. I would say it's either hair. Ben, Simmons Simmons can't shoot. By the way, Tobias Harris was really good during the season. It's been TIMMY Butler who's emerged both those guys are potentially free agents after this season by harasses another one, by the way, I'd rather up to by Harrison Jimmy Butler. Well, he's younger. Yep. But Butler can Butler is an elite defender. It depends value defense to if you don't care about defense. Of course, you care about defaults. Most coaches don't most NBA coaches, you really think that most coaches know, how what do you mean, what are all those Xs and os about they're all about defense. Boy, I would say is that everyone will say the right players. Don't care about defense coaches care about defense. What who quote, and that's all he talked about was defense defense. The corrected how whether players listener not was the issue. That's the key. They think what people will tell you is give me give me five guys who can score. Like they have in Philly. Over five guys that can defend any day of the week. But defense is literally half the game. So it is green butlers. A really good developed a good defender and can at times be a pain in the ass.

"If you feel free. To tweet at them. If you have his number field three to text them because we haven't been able to get a hold of him. When we booked them earlier today, he said, quote, unquote from the hick Meister, oh that'll be no problem. Well, except it kind of turned into a problem because we were gonna punch him up thirty five minutes ago, and we haven't been able to run them down jet yet. So if you're a CBS sports radio listeners tuned right now, thank you very much, and you're also fan of Michael athletic fill rate, right straight out to Michael. Hey, what the hell heard you're gonna be on with Mack win on CBS sports radio. You're not there where why what come on over a TBS? Let me help it hand. Bungee? You have untwisting give him a year tough five nights many calls, but a bunch of tweets with their top five from Celtics S z n not really convinced. He's a MAC man curry K D Greek freak Brian Lillard. My top five going forward and beat us to have durability and times maturity issues Simona, Ben Simmons Simmons has. Had the dominant games for them beat us. Simmons is not in a conversation. Top five, I don't know. The Timmins is in the top and conversation for the top ten top twenty yet. You can make an argument for Ben Simmons and top twenty top five and not even top ten for me from Tony Krueger. Join amac. Mike top five NBA players are one Jaanus to Durant three LeBron for curry five. James harden's? Little harden loved their from Malanje tea is a FOX. Okay, come on the president's wife. There's a Twitter handle for you top-five NBA players. I see Jodi MAC not an order, but Kevin Durant Kawai Leonard, Damian Lillard James harden, Paul George. Little suspect by his missing. There is. Lebron James if that's the way you look at it going forward for the next couple of years you starting to see LeBron digress. Then I guess I can buy that. Are you saying the same about Steph curry to Steph karston at the top of his game? I'm not seeing any regression from Steph curry, so Malania tea is a fax your Rican little bit with Paul George, but we've gotten a couple of people go Dame Lillard. Oh, I really am fan up. We add them on the show couple years ago. He was doing a carry thing. I think it was they made them to us. We didn't even call and ask they asked us if we wanted Dame is oh sure he wants come on his show, be our pleasure. Any was a real straight shooter. He even told us it was coming up on either an Olympic year world championship year. What named good tryout was part of team USA part of the group always makes up the teams, and they invite them in and I just said not me this off season. And he hadn't said that officially yet anybody it was still a major question Mark about I was asking him. If he thought he had a better chance to make the team, and he gave us breaking news that down not even showing up. I'm not trying to. I gotta be bothered. So I'd love it. When guys just give you breaking news that you don't have any preconceived notion that you're going to be able to get. So I've been a Dame Louis fan ever since. Eight nine top five. He just not as he's okay at best defensive player. He's a hell of a scorer. He's not one of those guys who makes everyone around him better. He's in fasten. He's a stone cold dead great scores slash shooter. That being said he's not as good as Steph curry is. So I don't know how you could have a list that Damon Lillard is on. But Steph curry is not if you're talking about top five players in the NBA. That's just me you need a tweet the show at Jody pacman or hop on. Our telephone lines at eight five five two one two four two two seven Rachel from Denver's up on CBS sports radio. Oh, I bet I know way Rachel's going Hello. Hello. How are you? I'm fine. How are you? Good. I think you guys completely underrate Nicolo. You'll get as for the Denver Nuggets. I understand what you're talking about. And he's playing a great season. And he's playing great ball again here in the postseason. I will not in any way, shape or form diminish what he is doing this year. If you're just talking about who are the best five players in the NBA for two thousand eighteen nineteen Yokich would be in the conversation. But this is the first year that he's play on this level. He took a couple of major steps up this year. And I would not put any player in the top five off one season. Albeit starting to get to be a lengthy season already flay offs playoffs. More yet to come if Denver can advance. So he can continue to add to his elevation on the list. But I don't think you can get there off only one season. All right. I do know that without the way that he plays for the team. And with the team they wouldn't be doing what they're doing. You are one hundred percent, correct. But let me ask you a question. What do you think the warriors would be like without Coventry? Considering they won without Kevin Durant. They want once they lost once they lost. Once they won two in a row with him. How about you take Steph curry off the warriors? How about you have to run without quite Leonard? What do you think the Sixers would be without? Joel Embiid any of these players. They if you're going to say, oh if you took them off the team the team would be nowhere. Yes. All of them any of these players. They're that good use track from the team, and you expect a massive drop off. And that's exactly what I think would happen. So while your statement about Yokich is accurate. It's as accurate if not more accurate in the case of the other players we've been kicking around Jake from South Carolina's up on CBS sports radio. Jake. Back. How you be in that I just wanted to get on a little bit on your Steph curry talk with especially this time of year in the playoffs. You can just see that whenever you know, like hardened brings the ball, and they're going whoever Curry's Gardner street and trying to get curry on the ball and Golden State's hold defensive philosophies just to get hurry away from it. And to me, I know, you know, offense he can break somebody down. He can hit three anytime anything prison now that you can go to the basket. And he's you know, he's a good finisher anywhere on the court. But to me just talking as a basketball player, it just seems like that the way they have to hide him on the fats. It's just like that's just the biggest thing for me with him by if he was that, dude. It just seems like he'd want to stay on the fall play lockdown defense. And and, you know, the strength of the team, you know, it may be, you know, get him away from LA employees off the ball sneaky. For steel or something. But it just seems like he was that guy. He would want that challenge of I'm going to stick on when they switch me like, that's just my opinion high Fernow, but let me ask you question, and you correctly, call them a point you consider him a point card, right? Absolutely. Okay. Who are the good defensive point cards in the NBA? I put Westbrook in there. Yes. Lillard and Lillard Lillard snow better than staff. Well, Lillard Lillard is a much better athlete, h in Lillard is you know, he's gonna he's gonna take on that challenge. So he's tall. He's from. He's from Oakland. He's going to step up that challenge and he's gonna he's going to go back and forth with somebody. I I know he's seen Jamal Murray. Eat Lillard up a couple of times in the first two games coming up though. I mean his, but if he's a dog you've got somebody like. You're saying, but it's just encouraged even you know, he'll sneak in and he'll get his steel and everything, but just like, you know, you know, reminds you know curry I don't know how long you've been an MBA guy. If you go back long enough to remember, it's only ten years, but I hope you do you know, you reminds me on defense. Hey, I used to play the pay the play the passing lanes and used to and he'd make big defensive plays. He'd get big steals and big spots. But just staying between his man in the basket completely. Optional by he's not gonna do anything about. Okay. That plays over. Let's get going on since step is a lot like that too. There are whole bunch of point guards. They're very few. And you tapped on the one guy who is when he puts his mind to it. And I truly believe that it is a mindset thing. Russell Westbrook is just so frigging fast athletic that can shut down of the teams point guards. But that's about it point guys. Don't play a lot of DNS league.

"But he had a couple of just annihilation of PASCAL Siaka had that had the block which was mostly mostly arm, but was still a dice play. And then the craziness of what was actually a really kind of dirty play by Siaka. Embiid took the ball away from him. And then Siachen was on the ground lifted up his leg and tripton bead. Embiid Embiid sold it a little bit. But it was a non basketball play and directly few of those in this game. I by Ben Simmons Simmons, catching Kyle Lowry. We'll see if there's any if I couldn't think of the right word like elbowing that. Play is very analogous to the Draymond green versus LeBron that got him the suspension just because I think he was assessed. A was it a deflate again, Rosa flagrant wonder a flagrant two was one. But that was so that's probably what it'll be then sussed afterwards a flagrant once a flagrant one assessed after a game doesn't make nearly as much difference. Now would one point at have done on this game. Probably not. But then after that, Kyle Lowry stuck out his leg kind of selling a push. And that looked like it injured JD Riddick. Fortunately, read it came back in the game and seemed like he was not too worse for where they'll be worth keeping an eye on. And yes the series is getting a little bit chippy. Also, the the lower seed is getting chesty because they really outplayed the raptors in this game, but we should talk a little bit about quite Leonard through three quarters his shot charters pretty remarkable to afford the restricted area though, he was getting to the free throw line. Two of five from Florida range seven of eight on twos outside of the paint. A lot of those were self-created. That's a fair number of them were were well contested. And then two or three on threes. The first one of those was basically dribble and pull up. I think the other one he made was catch and shoot. But he was doing a lot on his own or at least using the help minimally on his way to creating shot. Yeah. And that really there was a thought. Okay. Well, police shooting fifty percent on threes rows shooting it. Well, and Toronto's been having all these defense of Erazo. He'll the game would really be close. But then you looked at Toronto shot chart, and they're just unbelievable from mid range. And even why couldn't continue to go seven of eight a for mid range and it with Billy having eight blocked shots and go a couple of those run jumpers, but eleven out of twenty four at the rim for Toronto. And that's why the adjustment. I think the adjustment to put Embiid on Siachen. Thanks. They just started off with him on. So I think just to confuse a little bit like let them be going on offense. But now that they've gone to that it lets him beat. So it's more effective as a helper because Siachen is looking to spot up as much as. It's really impressive to that. CRM only got three three point attempts in this game. Despite the fact that his man and beat is the primary help defender, am they tried to post up Casula couple of times that didn't really work that. Well, they got a couple of decent shots there. But Philly's is going to live with that. They've got the athletes to close down if they have to double team. So I'm not sure other than involving Redican small small pick and rolls, which we had been chart that for us. And they did one the entire gain. It was not a robust chart. I why would you go away from that? Like there a few times it didn't work that well in the first half a game too. But it worked great in game one. And in the second half game to they got some good looks off of it too. So I I really didn't understand why end at the very least where's running down a little bit. So I understand why they just didn't try that at all that was really odd to me. But other than that. I'm not sure what else there is. I mean, people are killing Nick nurse because people always want to kill the coach supposed when the favorite is blaming poorly. But like, it's not nickname, Nick nurse's fault that Fred vanfleet. Like doesn't have a field goal in the whole series. Yeah. He's really struggled and especially from three and he's at least in this game..

His durability is available. You know? So asked me my favorite clay game. He's I can literally pick from every single game. I think you might have missed one. He missed one game. He got soft that night. I guess he missed one game this year. He hates to miss any case in point last year. He's playing in the finals, he's got a bruise up and down his quad that you can't even imagine what that somebody would play. But that's you know, that's one of the best attributes of any player just being there for the team night in night out. He takes great pride in that. So the combination of a great two way player who's available every single night. Then once in a while he sets an NBA record for points in a quarter most threes in a game and shoots fifty percent for you know, from learfield for the whole year and forty percent from three I mean, what's not to love.

"Fouls in the second quarter. Philadelphia has to other team foul ledger. Embiid at the line for two it's the first with two fifty one to go in the half untying the game sloppy or second quarter. Both teams that taking care of the ball. Very well and that shooting it as well. I thought. Eighty was easily within reach. I don't think. So now, we may have to settle for the mid seventies leader Embiid hits both scored the last eight four Philadelphia. He's got twenty points in the first half. We weren't sure. Whether he was going to play because he's so under the weather looking good. So far Sixers lead by two James with his left foot at the three point line swings at right side, who's the missing three long rebound.

Radic JJ Radic is the energizer bunny ran the floor it full speed set both feet in the air left the floor still inbound when he landed he was about three feet out of bounds. You that much forward momentum that made the shot, and I was going to second guess Ben Simmons because I was going to say then don't pass it out. Lebron's got two fouls. Just take it. Right. Adam. He made a better decision. Four point. We have a perfect angle on that left baseline. And he was behind the backboard TJ McConnell just stood up in front of the six or marriage.

J O D Y M M A N preferable of the phones. And that's where I talked to my buddy Lou from his story avenue. Yeah. I've been new year to you. All right, buddy. Let me tell you about much time come on. I mean, you know, Manny Machado. Team in America. They will not be better off by saying that he's guy wrong. Oh. Have to think about I don't think there is any team that has a shortstop third base combo where they might be close to his good as Manny, and you don't want to change. No. I think every team and I think he can make that statement about every team in baseball. If you added Machado you'd be upgrading. Yes. If I gave you this big like three hundred average. On the home is doing forty seven dollars every year. Meets the game. The only time he meets games was when he was suspended, by the way, full being aggressive with people things that he's not I I mean, I can't figure that out myself. Okay. I mean, that's stuff that let me tell you besides nobody thirteen he wears the because he's Ida was Vegas. They will move to play third, and you know, what I want to do high love them to death. But you know, what? He's like a violin mcgivering waited. He we have to give him another year. Guys, the real thing with shadow. It done already. He's a superstar eight have no doubt about that. Right. They only doubt will be if someone is crazy enough to give him like a twelve year contract. He's yes. Yes. Yes. I agree. You you know, what I'm saying? I mean, if you got a guy if I was reshot, and I want I want you to be with your family and your daddy. What were your daddy will say? I mean, this is this is my my time to do. What's best family at eight? Oh what I'm saying? And and the guy that is in the dugout making three hundred million dollars, which is not even close to the way they ability that I had to play the game. It's going to be kind of tough Yoda. You come on. Let's be honest. This is America, right? I think we're on the same page is low. There's a deal that could be had did a few of the Yankees. You just got to walk away from let's say Phillies have been prominently mentioned that his team had been interested Machado. They've already had him down for a meeting. Bunch of air executives were with Baltimore when Manny came to their system. If the Phillies just go nuts and say will give you twelve years in three hundred ninety million dollars and Machado comes back to the Yankees and says, listen my preferences to play for you. And I've got an offer of three years and twelve years and three hundred ninety million dollars. Here's what I need you as the Yankees to offer me I want that twelve years. I don't need all of that three hundred ninety million dollars from you. I'll take three hundred sixty I'm passing from the Yankees. I'm not going twelve and three sixty. I sure as hell wouldn't read either Phillies during a little bit more desperate than the Yankees are right now. So they can in their own minds justify that kind of an offer. They need Machado worse than the Yankees need Machado. But there's a contract whereby. I would just say no Manny can't do as much and we'd like as much as we acknowledge you upgrade, we wouldn't have had the meeting. We wouldn't have brought Yan. We wouldn't have sung your praises the way. We did. We wouldn't have offered you the. I'm just making up another number here. Eight and two hundred and forty million dollars. Pretty damn good offer. Somebody off Jake me eight years two hundred forty million dollars. But we're not going to twelve years in three hundred six we're not there is a deal out there that I would say no to the Yankees developed and different teams have different levels of tolerance and ability do those kind of deals, but there's absolutely deals that you could say, no, thank you. Manny. Manny puts them on the table and says if you give me this I'll sign with you right now. Just say no walk from jerseys up on the fan hallowed wall. Hey, jodie. How are you happy? Not happy new year to you basketball question for you. Ben simmons. Do they think he's he's gonna come up with the outside shot still? That's a very fair and debatable question. Do. They think it. Yes. They think it everyone thinks everybody believes that over time. Ben Simmons is going to become a better outside shooter. If I were betting man, I would bet against it. No, he is a young as he is relative age in NBA players, just keep getting younger and younger and younger. I think this time we would've seen more glimpses of it that it was a developing trade that he could continue work on and get better. And better. He just doesn't take shots outside of fifteen sixteen feet when he does he doesn't hit him. So we're going to be part of his arsenal. Because at this point. I sure hope they can get the folks kid a healthy. 'cause I would like to see him in the back of backward. Running that running that team without without Simmons on the without Simmons on the court. And if that were the case, and if you were to come around, do you think we'd have some trade talk between that at this point? You can he can have his a triple doubles. I ran to see somebody else with his shot that he would hopefully find that shot again. But we're we're now. Markup faults played a handful of games. So the Sixers last year, and he looked good in even less than that got a handful of games this year before went back on quote unquote, the injured list, which I don't see the medical reports. I don't see the rays. I don't see the MRI's. I take them for what they're worth. But I think there's some issues with the young man's confidence. In ability just think to be able to play in the NBA think it's more than just ease hurt. I he's not far from Simmons. You don't know what you're getting with Markelle fault? I don't know Markelle fault. I watch him play. Plenty when he was at Washington goes, I news going to be a topic side watch the Pac ten network late at night. And you're right. It used to be able to shoot it. But we're two years removed from him being able to shoot it which is better than Simmons who's never been able to shoot. But the further you get away from when he laugh was a good shooter. It has to weekend. Your confidence and belief that he can get back to that level. Jody I'm telling you it's going to bite them in the end when they get in the playoffs. You people thinking how far they can go way his nam nam shooting. I even ital- shot. It's going to bite him. Many of the other twenty eight teams, and when I say twenty eight I mean, take the Sixers out of it and take the Boston Celtics out of it. If I'm worried about Ben Simmons. I'm watching tape on. How Boston does it because he has such troubles against them out of playoff them and playing his passing lanes. And restrict what he does when he is the ball in his hands, the Celtics just neutralized Ben Simmons Simmons plays well against other teams. So I'll give credit to the Celtics for their ability to figure out exactly how to minimize his skills. There's no reason at other teams can't figure that fact figure that out now they might not have as. The same players and talent that the Celtics have on a defensive and which by the way, I like to sing the praises of the Celtics defense, which I think is good forty eight points in the second quarter to the San Antonio Spurs last night night. Didn't see any of that game. I was New Year's Eve I went to a party and they were watching ballgame. So I didn't see any of the highlights this morning of the Spurs and the Celtics, but I did notice that they gave up forty eight points in the second quarter. So and as much as I want to sing the praises Celtics defense. I don't know what happened to the halibut that they gave up forty six forty eight points in the third quarter. That's a terrible quarter defense, but they do shut down. Ben Simmons Logan for montville up on the fan. Logan, logan. Hey, dirty, Malcolm doing how are you? Good. How are you? Do you? What's on your mind? I I a couple of points about ninety Machado. Okay. Here's the phone. I. I was listening to and Michael on cell. Split on Yabu.
