All these leagues have plans in place. You're hearing about it. You here in the room was here in the NHL's been quiet forever. Now you're saying now you're here and well, maybe they want to play outdoors, but it's not gonna work because they need the fans. They're not gonna play a Fenway park cause they need the fans. Fenway that they get fans retroactive, willing to do it. The Red Sox could do it and made these actual at stadium. I was reading today that the The Pittsburgh papers could be playing heights field and all these other teams around the league could be playing outdoor stadiums. But what's taking so long for the and shell to get off their ass is and figure playing out? I think the problem that the country of candidates locked out Hey, They don't know what to do. Okay? Okay.

That's not very good is gonna be trouble, dear. One thing about No, that hockey had no problem. But it's gonna come back to a bubble. When you get back to trying to play outdoors. That makes sense. But the only way they'll be allowed to do it here in Boston is with fans, they so what do you keep saying that fell apart? And what part is willing to do it? They have. They still own the rinks from when they had college hockey and stuff there, so wouldn't be much of a transition from they'd have to be approved. I believe the number was 5500 or something like that. T O make it work if it would work that way. The Red Sox are willing to do it. I asked the question about the field. What would happen with that? And they said that? Yeah, they just have to redo the whole field before baseball started. But Red Sox were all in there looking for revenue. Red Sox have volunteered to To become, uh, testing place our vaccination place. They're trying to do everything to prove that they can handle crowds and try to get it going.

NBA Draft Rumor Mill
"Two thousand and twenty. Nba draft rumors whether those trade rumors talking about where we're hearing particular players going. We've talked about all the big names already. We've talked about hard and we talked about chris. Paul we've talked about dennis schroder. We've talked about russell westbrook. We talked about minnesota. We talked about golden state. We talked about charlotte. The bulls are sitting there at four. And it's been really interesting. Dinnie obvious name's been floated about. I've heard from multiple sources that that is sheer speculation because of their general manager. Who's an international guy. And what he did in. Denver has nothing to actually do connected with this pick. La bella ball could be there for chicago. Which would be very interesting in the back court that they currently have there. And i've heard a lot of therese albert. I'm here as well as a culture guy and one of the big things that chicago is focusing on his culture right. Now who do you see taking at ford. They have a guy. I applaud the bulls because they have really done a good job of not telegraphing. What they're doing you know they've been connected to a lot of these guys. They've done an above average job. Relative to when teams are leaky of keeping this close to the best And so it's who they end up with. I think if ball is there he makes tons of sense. That's a nice fit with you guys have and the need for a passer and the fact that there are other scorers on the roster where he's not gonna act like be the only guy who's creating anything that's a pretty nice fit so we'll see if he's there we dug into lamelo earlier so i'm not gonna harp on that fit but let's say he's not there and i think allah is a real option. I agree that some of it is the speculation but he does kinda fit their roster as well and i've heard again obi topping. Who's come up for them. A anthony grants Coach dayton was on billy donovan staff previously thunder. So they're obviously going to be well informed about top into. There's some thought that billy donovan can have some input on what they do here. But it's hard to know exactly what his type of player is is. In oklahoma city you had prestige san prestige Decisions with burst now. So how burton has come up another dark horse. I think for that spot. And i'm still not entirely sure what to make of this but it's patrick williams who i know there's at least some degree real interest there. Would they take him at four. It wouldn't be like totally crazy. At this point. It would be high for him. But i mean maybe that's their secret. They have their sleeve It's really tough for me to predict too but right now my guess would be that if there is no ball. I still lean audio. But i don't think it's like a foregone conclusion. I think people are trying to figure chicago right now. Let's talk about patrick williams because it seems to be a foregone conclusion that everybody thinks detroit's taking him it's of and so now the question is will even be there at seven which you know a few weeks ago probably would have been seen as madness. But i've heard talk that. Atlanta is interested in him. I've heard talk. That cleveland is now interested in him. The most of the talking. Cleveland centers around obi top in and dinnie omnia there. And now you're mentioning chicago at four with patrick williams heck widen on the warriors taking to. Is you know patrick williams is. This is the next upside guy right like after you talk about ball edwards and weisman. I think mini scouts see him the next guy he only averaged nine points a game at florida state but that he has this big big ceiling right that he could that he could fit into as a team. Just as a prospect. Is it possible. He's getting over hyped at this point. Do you really see him. As a player that has the next highest ceiling in this draft after ball edwards. In wiseman i have to admit like. I'm not all the way there with him. I have had him graded as a lottery. Guy for a long time towards the end the college season i was like that guy is gonna go ten to twelve. And that's where i had him now. Yeah i didn't expect this type of leap. I guess we might have predicted it because team sent to be a little bit predictable this time of year. You know the the upside guy always the guy. It's without quite john right now but yeah. I think he's very much an idea. And it's worth re-emphasizing that you know. His his body obviously is really promising in terms of how it will hold up defensively. He's going to be versatile. On that end he will have to get a little bit more agile laterally but his is. The value so young is really helpful. Obviously a big factor. You know being the youngest college player in this draft so between that and then you see flashes were really had a pull up jumper. He's did pretty well from the line. I think there's a pretty good chance. He's an above average three point shooter in now you're talking about well. Hey maybe this is a floor spacing combo forward. You can check out. He'll buck shots. He will play good team. Defense and be switchable. That's a pretty in this draft especially when we're like how do we find like even just like a high level player that case is pretty egypt's let's let's say we take that case for. I mean that's a pretty comparable high and dry or if not better. So i see it what i do it at four. I don't know but i understand why this is happening. And i think there teams that you might wanna come up and get him. And that's probably what the pushing them up. The board as well wants wants everybody found out. Detroit was the floor. Change the conversation. It really does. and there. Is this weird psychological dynamic in the draft. That i love it every year. You know jeremy because this thing takes hold oh you like him at seven now. Maybe we at six like there. Is this conversation that starts to happen with these with these boards. And so you know there's so much data and there's so much scouting that's put into this. But the psychology of the draft is the most fascinating fascinating

How Doris Burke Became An Accidental Pioneer
"We'll. So Dana I can you tell us a little bit about your own relationship with Doris Burke Yeah? I'm Lucky Kavita I. Mean I worked at ESPN for eight years. So Doris was one of the people that I interacted with frequently. I mean we had so much in common with our love for college basketball and we would just chat at games or she shoot me a text. Love that story that you did today you are. You're just you know you did a great job you knocked it out of the park or I would text her. So we've gone back for years and She's just always been the same. That's the coolest thing I can say about Dr is I don't care if she's super popular people are making t-shirts. Drake and all this, and she's still the same that she was when I first met her how would you describe her on air personality and her style in the booth I think what people like about Dr She's She's she's very intelligent and on point about all of her observations, he's got US billy. Donovan says excellent lower body strength and he doesn't reach over. Don't give the official even a window cut the angle. She is not loud. She's not there's no stick to her tough shot contest. Yes. Yes she says something and she really hones in her. She really calls somebody out everyone's Kinda like both. To Me is where Andrew Wiggins has stood in the corners on several possessions. Like steals reporter to. And if you talk to people in the game, they actually say that they they are very respectful of her opinion and they know if she has a problem with something, then there's a problem. We'll Dana you recently wrote a profile on doors for the athletic I. can you tell us a little bit about her background and her early days? She's like a lot of us or at least like me you know kids that grew up just interested in sports. Super. Star Sable. Start Tonight number eleven she moved from Long Island to the Jersey shore to a small town happened to be a park across the street and a basketball hoop and it was like divine intervention right? She hadn't really played a lot of basketball growing up in Long Island. But when she moved, she was young enough that she just that's where she went and there was never a sense of Oh Doris girls don't play sports. It was just whatever you're busy go outside and play sable from outside. and. So she just became a really good ballplayer where really good basketball players are often developed, which is on the playgrounds took all comers boys girls didn't care. The BUZZER GUARD SABLE Head. And grew into a good enough. Basketball players to get a scholarship to providence. We forget that that was a really big deal for young women. Athletes are just weren't a lot of them. That wasn't normal and she recognize it immediately as what it was. It was a ticket for her to get to college and pay for college and established herself in a career. She wasn't there was no WNBA obviously, she knew that this was the path for her future in her life and she just kinda followed it along. Well, she definitely likes to make fun of herself when talking about in her plane, I had it all going on bad hair bad teeth bad clothes, and the only thing I care about whether my jump shot would ever Mack my triple driveability. She does she downplays herself. She doesn't think she wasn't. You know whatever she wasn't the greatest player. You know she was more of a thoughtful player than a an athletic player that sort of thing. Yeah. I mean she's very self deprecating even about her broadcasting career, which is just hilarious. But again, that's what makes Dr. Stars is that she doesn't take herself too seriously. How did she get her start in broadcasting accidentally which I think I can relate that myself but in her circumstance she was coach she went back to providence to be a coach but then she got married and she got to look around. You know this was back when there weren't a lot of. MOMS that were coaches, you know a lot of coaches, maybe one or the other they couldn't do both and she really thought I want to start a family. So she stepped away from coaching and by Dumb luck at the same time Providence decided you know what? We could put a couple of women's basketball games on the radio and we need somebody to do the radio for us and Ella Dar's. You're sitting there. Why don't you do this and she did and she jokes pie five people are listening you probably honestly not wrong. Let's be honest providence women's basketball and some regional network probably not like drawing huge numbers but she loved it and it was easy and it was comfortable and that just sort of Begat one opportunity after another and an big break came because one of the men's basketball. Analyst for the Big East Games couldn't make it into a providence men's game and they were desperate and that she tells us hilarious story was at the emergency room with her son. He had fallen off the weight bunch cut his head open blood everywhere. She's GONNA to bloody shirt and they told her to come down and do play by play and she said, well, I can't play by play but I'll do the color and boom she's on TV and there she. Is I mean no intent to climb some corporate ladder it just sort of opportunity presented itself and she took it.
Sources -- Doc Rivers agrees to five-year deal to coach Philadelphia 76ers
"That brings us to the Philadelphia Seventy sixers very quickly. This deal comes together Asia, was your Aska dropping the bomb. It seems like it took about two minutes. The sixers are interested in Doc rivers have a phone call great year available done twenty one seasons one tuttle with the Celtics coach of the magic and the clippers as well. Some people love because he's a great communicator and maybe he's the guy that can motivate embiid and Simmons the knock against him is that maybe he's a little bit overrated. Too much of a players coach, he's not tough enough and didn't get it done with the clippers. He's a lot of three one leads by the way he's blown in the playoffs, your thoughts doc running your sixers. You know I think you know I initially my reaction is I think doc is a little bit overblown as a coach You know I'm not sure I'm not sure you know how? Intense he is and where where he'll really take the team to but I do know this. I think he's a big figure and I think he's bigger than the two players at the sixers have to have on their team Simmons and beat doc is you know they can't challenge doc because docs bigger than they are even docs one he's played. He's done everything that the sixers wanted. So there's no more excuses for embiid. There's no more excuses for. SIDS, they have to kind of either buck up where they're going to have to figure out what they're gonNA do plus I think at least they brought somebody in from the outside that'll try to let them know that this is the way we're going to have to play, and this is what we have to do with our team. So you know they needed a big personality I would have preferred billy Donovan data didn't go in that direction because I think they probably thought Billy Donovan would be too hard ass on them, which is what I think they need but they got somebody that I think brings them some cachet and some clout and some real real. Respect that the players just can't walk over and they can't run to the owner. So at the end of the day that the balances I look at it, I'm okay with it I like it better than Mike Dantonio. I wasn't sure how that was ever GonNa Work I. Know Embiid I was talking to people in the NBA and they said embiid really wanted to Tony I didn't know how that was going to work but. I'll take it i. mean you know one thing in another month I'll be back full force for you know thinking they're going to win another title again right now I'm in a depression state I'll come out of it eventually and then I'll be fine and I'll be pretend like nothing happened I'm an idiot can I tell you

Think about all that I have I'm not good with that type of stuff and I don't WanNa see here and B. M. B. S. The people I don't know what makes a good coach a certain situation I don't know what he did it Oklahoma City where when you had Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook and Katie left in it. It's just it's just a lot of variable. I know this year they were great day overachieved and he was great for. Them but I do know they also turn the keys over to cruise pause at went. But so I wish him the best I I don't I don't know what's which is even the benchmark look like for Success in Chicago I'm not even sure what I i. if I understand that I'm not even sure I understand their roster of if how good they can possibly be like a lot of guys under team. So I'd be lying if I told you all man. Shares he's going to do so good I don't I don't know any of those things. We'll see he did win sixty plus percent of his games out of the four hundred koshen. Okay. See he had an eighteen and twenty three record in the playoffs as team went to the Western Conference finals in year one when he had Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook of what they did not win a series after that any inherits a very young but my opinion relatively talented young team in Chicago So kudos to billy dee in the front office Chicago for a after a long exhaustive process finally getting their guy scale. Here's some of the other candidates that were interviewed by according to Marc Spears also according to my sources in the front. Office as well. Are they talked to Stephen Silas Jamal. Moseley Dan Craig Kenny Atkinson Gironde Collins Yodok David Vander Pool West Junior Darvin Ham and Chris Fleming who is there assistance assistant so they had a pretty long exhaustive search I. Think the search pivoted when Billy Donovan became available. That was something that was maybe unforeseen, and now he's going to get a chance where they knew front office to lead the Bulls and try to get them back into the playoffs. Gal. On because Chicago has been the second worst team in the NBA Ed only the New York Knicks in terms of the record over the last three years.

"Forced. Mature. We know how you legally. Charge. But next season. So let's speculate next season happens. Programs that might have job openings Texas longhorns. Again Steve Kerr five million a year you go to Texas big ten, million dollars a year. Have all the facilities go too often I mean we should point this out that like everyone talk I was talking about this about Jay Wright and. Anytime. Anytime you get a situation like this where it's a guy can is he's deciding between college and pro and I know Billy Donovan is not deciding he's made it clear as a pro guy but anytime, discussions are head everyone's like why would anyone want to bother with being a college coach because you have to recruit and you have to deal with all those headaches and like guys don't WanNa deal with it that's why Brad Stevens will never go back. That's why Billy Donald doesn't want to go back etcetera etcetera etcetera. That's why Fred Hoiberg will never go back away he's back. In all of that is fair like I, I wouldn't wanNA recruit. That's who wants to deal with all that. That's Riddick. I don't WanNa follow recruiting much less like be active member participating and. All that makes a lot of sense but the trade off as you said is colleges, they can pony up cash one they could was shits on a money. Back dump truck forty, two ability if billy don wants to go back to college, he could get a lifetime like literal lifetime contract someone he could. He could call if Maryland wants to move on from our church and he could call Maryland and be like I'm only coming if I get a fifteen year contract and they're like done for how much how much fifteen million done we'll call Scott compelled. Have Arizona is another team Arizona, Oh, my God if it Billy Donovan just publicly said I want to go to Arizona doing it for less than ten million a year every Arizona fans just throwing money yes in Arizona. All of a sudden. They have given. So that's the reason you do it because like an NBA listen you the the the leashes or shorter I, mean it's it's just a fact like NBA coaches are you know if your grade for like Gregg Popovich and Brad Stevens seems like he'll be it's Dawson as long as you want Spoelstra like they're a handful of Steve Kerr the warriors coach as long as you want but it feels like a very small group of guys who are going to be coaching in the bay at their job for as long as they want to and college. That is not the case. There are a lot of guys in college that. Will never get fired for any reason basically their Arjun life and Billy Donovan has status. He's reached that status in college basketball that is the appeal him coming to college, and if he does go to college, there is the changing of the guard that's going to happen with the college coaches like the ACC guard that we just talked about the Jim boeheim coach as the Roy Williams Leonard Hamilton that core four guys is going out of the game. So there's obviously Tony. Benn is going to step into that role Jay Wright him probably already technically in those roles, right? So if Billy Donovan wants to come back, he could be the face of. College basketball at certain spot if he wants to is he coming back to? Florida tate is he coming back I? Mean quite is quite dancer Florida I don't know if he is if if Back to Florida. That would be something that would be bigger Florida. At Florida. John Back in Michigan. I'm coming home. At. The same time job. So, here's Howard the Pacers. bazars Billy Donovan Dot to Michigan Oh God no please. No. All right. So here here's here's a thought exercise for your. Current college coaches. So if you're starting a program right now and all every college coach has to lose their job and then there's a draft and you get the first pick and you can draft any coach that you want and. Where's billy? Donovan. Fall in that draft in terms of lake, like you have to factor in ages well, because like you don't want. I'm not for me. I'm not drafted Royer K. or behind is or C.. K. or my top two picks, and then everybody else is like three and below I don't want a guy over six years old no, I'm not starting. I'm going for the CIA. Is Say for the championship season. pull. The twenty one, thousand raptors. I'm getting my k which is coach Kane said The. So I'll give you. I'll give you a list of guys. So these are these are the guys that I put on my list again, the demarcation was sixty years old. So these are guys. Billy Donovan's fifty five, the names I'm giving. You are all younger than sixty. So. I'm not saying again the exercises not like. If Coach K. I'm not saying would if you're, would you fire coach K. to hire Billy Donovan? I'm saying you are Iowa state and all of these coaches are available, which one are you calling i? J. Reid is fifty eight years old are you calling Jay Rider? Billy Donovan I if they're both without jobs J. Rey. Tony Bennett. Over so now now it's like. Billy Donovan, we're trying to figure out. Okay and Tony Bennett over Billy Donovan. Yes. He i. I think I do both of those guys. Well, Chris Beard is on my list. I would call Billy Donovan. Fortress Beard Right crispier is he's got a few more years. He's got gotta show something. If you bill self is fifty seven years old I would call bill self before I call Billy Donovan and I think that that was shock a lot of people because but I but I will say that I have my own. Misconstrued preconceived notions about billy, Donovan Beating Carolina Fan it'd be an. Aso. Like and obviously bill self won me over in person after we saw him just swaggering around Chechen around being being the go. So I would say, yeah, bally's. To. We. GotTa go back to. that.

Resume passed by was building on. He's He's past the college game by I'm saying when he comes back, he's going to be like what is going on here you guys kidding me. The only one you would what about the I let the name off my list Mick Cronin. Big quoted as one that I was hoping you were gonNA throw out there. I would take like if I'm UCLA. I, know that there were love. I. Don't listen to this bill is. Talking Nick, this is not me I'm sorry. I'm sorry. Billy Billy Pigg. You mentioned bill self doesn't want to go to the NBA because he he has seen it not work for other people and I just picture like. Like Bill Self James Bond, and he stayed on the edge of a cliff and the FBI is coming after. And they're the bad guys that are coming after him shooting guns at him as he's on the cliff looking around, you can't go. He can't go back that way.

"Young. The Michael porter, jR thing is such an interesting addition to I'm gonna I'm gonna buy it by it doesn't happen to respond to the warriors. But I'm gonna go on the the notion. He does not I'm going to buy that. Over in the east the raptors defeated the Sixers last night I score of ninety to ninety after game winning shot by Leonard Philadelphia once again failed to make it beyond the second round, which many consider a disappointment. So naturally that Brett Browns job is on the line. Now, he'll be the one who takes the blame for the disappointing season. So bar said that Brown should be fired. The represented brutal game that brutal shooting night. They turned to shoot thirty nine times. Embiid was rarely near the rim. Simmons played you guys. Notice played really aggressive basketball early on and took five shots. I think over the course of the game. There are so many ways where you know, coaching would have clearly put Philly over the top of that game. This little thing called coaching. I don't want. You know, I know raptors fans are smile and Sixers fans are Browning frowny bet. Let's just you know, I'll do I'll just do it for Tom wherever he is. So sometimes you got your head trace. So as you head on the Cavaliers hired John beeline is the next head coach, which makes the Michigan basketball job open. One of the rumor coaches to be inconsideration Billy Donovan, the Oklahoma City current head coach Soubirous, Billy damage should go back to college and be the head coach at Michigan. Yeah. This is really interesting. So he's not getting fired in Oklahoma City and Sam prestige guy, and that's the general manager to Oklahoma City. It's a very powerful ally. But Sam prestige is Billy Donovan's only ally right down the NBA. And if this doesn't work, I don't think it's an unreasonable notion to think Billy Donovan's, not get an MBA coaching job again, especially if you keep having these first lout round playoff dismissals. So if you're Billy Donovan, I think the question isn't should you go it's when you're going to have to go do you wanna give another year or two NT ROY that you're going to break through? I don't I look is going to work for the thunder. And so I could see where Donovan would be Michigan's blueblood job. He can win national championships there in Oklahoma City. I don't think he's wildly celebrated in Michigan. He held as a as a conquering here on the king. I am buyer seller. You should take the job is up. The the end all Bill.

Blazers Beat Thunder as Damian Lillard Outplays Russell Westbrook
"Portland Trail Blazers verse the Oklahoma City thunder. This question because I feel like this is huge. This wish team has the most lose by first round exit. Because. Okay. So yes, by it's okay. Has the most to lose year most Bassac AC wash rest. This is their team to all stars when MVP candidate and the ex VP and they can't do much of their roster for next year. So this is there for three years unless they trade a Stephen Adams or something. So they definitely got the most lose. But they stayed alive was a good thing for them. Russell Westbrook came out and played his game. Which is perfect, and they Billy Donovan changed some shit. Isn't that crazy the colts Billy Donovan as some chains ads the clipboard a job but play last shot? That's the guy who. Chains that he may was Russell Westbrook's Nygaard Damian Lillard last night. He was on African no which could be a great day for us a west because he didn't have to use so much energy chasing, Damian Lillard. And this is also what kills me Russell. You can't talk shit today. If you're not guarding him the first game he killed you. And you do Shane does. Let them go. You can't do that. If he killed her first games. You ain't do sit. And you all yes, I did.

Portland wins Game 1 against the Thunder 104-99
"Okay, CNN Portland Portland wins this game one zero four to ninety nine. And when you look at this game you look at Paul George eight of twenty four four fifteen from three. And remember Paul George is somebody that was dealing with a shoulder injury for the majority of the season or the majority of the second half of the season and cities come back from that shoulder injury. He has not been the same player. But this is going to be a serious problem for okay? See if Paul George is going four fifteen from three point zero, Tori. This has been your best player all season long. You need Paul George to show up in these critical moments. And if you look at okay, see, it's more of the same for Russell Westbrook. Billy Donovan, Nepal, George in the postseason ever since Kevin Durant left. Russell Westbrook has been able to win in the postseason. We saw last year they lost to jazz team that they had more talent than right? They lost. Series four to one. And now you look at it. Maybe this is just one of those teams that puts up good regular season numbers puts the regular season record. And then they get to the postseason and they don't come through because for years. Everybody had bought into Russell Westbrook being the beloved superstar because Russell Westbrook was the guy that stayed and Kevin Durant was the guy that left, but Russell Westbrook at some points to start back in this stuff up because in the postseason loses in the first round two years ago. And I get that year. He didn't have any other running mate. But last year they lose to jazz. Now if that happens again now, you have serious trouble. If you're okay see because this is your team going forward. This is the team that the thunder will be this is the team. You sunk all the money into Westbrook all the money into Paul George you paid Stephen Adams at ton of money. Like, you can't go out in the open market like max free agent. You this is your team. These are the guys that you're rolling with long-term. So if this gets ugly for okay, see, it's going to be Billy of it. Right. Because we know Sam Prestia loves Billy Donovan. But if you lose again for the. Third consecutive year in the first round when you have a former MVP and Russell Westbrook. Paul George who was in the MVP conversation this year, he'll probably finished in the top five. He was in the conversation for the defensive player of the year. If this team loses in the first round to the Portland trailblazers or what's going to happen? Those guys are gonna look at a coach and the coach is going to be the one that gets fired. It's not going to be something with the players. You're not gonna trade Paul George. You're not gonna trade. Russell westbrook. It's going to be the coaches eventually gonna lose his job. I was surprised to see them go down to a Portland team. Which by the way is playing with its second. Best player all season long. Not out. There Yousef nourish was better than CJ McCollum this year and use of nourishes implying, and then you have a guy in cancer on Portland who was bought out by the next. They say, yeah, we don't watch any more. You couldn't trade cancer. Nobody wanted him. He's on the blazers a guy that the thunder got rid of because they didn't think he could play. Okay. Cancer is somebody that during playoff series a couple of years ago against the warriors when Kevin Durant was still there. And it was Russell Westbrook Durant. And they blew that three one lead against the warriors. Billy Donovan literally mouth can't play cancer. He was saying I can't play Kanter. And Kanter for Portland goes out there any beats okay, see going for. Twenty points and eighteen rebounds out their center, Stephen Adams who has seventeen points and six rebounds in that game. So you thought coming into this series, the glaring issue for Portland, they don't have their set or anymore and cancer is a horrible defender. And Kanter is going to be exposed, right? You've thought that clearly okay. See has a big advantage because Portland is without its second best player. And Kanter is now they're starting center who you didn't want your because you noticed he couldn't play in a postseason series in the past when he was with you. And this guy exposes you in game one of the series. Unbelievable. The way that this changed for okay? See now down a one you look at these teams. How many teams are facing as much pressure as we know the pressure. The warriors face they have to winner. It's an epic failure. Right. Philadelphia's in a similar situation with their coach long-term but outside of Philadelphia. You look at the teams that have the pressure on them. Okay. Sees right up there in terms of the top of the food chain. Because at what point is Russell Westbrook gonna do. Do something without Kevin Durant. That's my question at what point is Russell Westbrook actually gonna have success in the postseason without Kevin Durant. The first year, you can say, okay mulligan, because he didn't have any with buddy with them last year at Paul George. This year has Paul George if you don't get out in the first round of the playoffs against an undermanned team a team that is without its second. Best player that is a major issue for us a Westbrook, and that's a major negative on his legacy. If you will. And I hated the way that Russell Westbrook acted after this game. Did you see Russel Westbrook with the media? And I'm not saying you have to be the nicest guy in the world to the media. But after the game, you're up there doing a press conference, and you're acting like a child Russell Westbrook. Every time somebody asked him a question. He just said next question didn't answer any of the questions just sitting there next question next question next question like come on, man. Grow up like Russell Westbrook. Grow up at some point. You have to face the music when you underperform it's not the media's fault when you perform poorly in the postseason.

So we'll we'll see in January with those things you've got to see how he does in the morning, but it was a sprained ankle. And hopefully, it'll be okay. Billy. When Russell went out the team you head on the floor of the rest of the quarter was primarily bench players. And I think they scored their last seven trips down the court. Can you just go through that space and time it was all defense? You know, how many got out on a couple of fast breaks and got a three point play at dunk. But if everything was generated with our defense force twenty turnovers. You know, the game was probably one with the number of points. We scored over turnovers.

They all teams though when LeBron close the game out. That's what I want to know. And LeBron he's a great basketball player. But I've got a problem. I I don't know if I could be able to play with him because when somebody do something wrong, I don't like his his body. I don't reaction. But when he do something wrong. Dribble. The ball. You're damn foot toback cork and was doing this. But then cools my shot up three with like three seconds from shock. You still him down the hallway back on defense? And you pass it's wasn't a report from a few weeks ago about how players don't wanna play LeBron. Yeah. Paulie? Right because people will call up like Harry, call like, hey love. What was it really liked to play with the bar is it as good as you may think, and I think Kevin love specifically say there's a lot of more is on you. And there's a lot of criticism on you. If you're on that team, but the end of the day, if you're winning you can look past that, but I think other players may have a different mentality than that. Like having that extreme criticism may really get onto somebody skin things. Go wrong. They're going to get you. And now LeBron because I mean, that's what's happening right now. Now that the Lakers are struggling people are putting a magnifying glass on every single one of these yet Lakers players like get them at I guess people get him out of there. But like criticizing different things that they've done when a reality. I don't know if you should do with that, you know, And still. it's still LeBron being under teen suspected to be in top team in the league contended. You're adding one year, and they're actually all playing like pretty good. The whole Russell plant every game good this happens team.

Now in fair is he's going to get to do everything he wants to do you know what I mean as Marshon Brooks on the hawks offense? Well, listen, I saw Brooks on a rat team last year by the way I did. I saw under rent team, see what he did. That's what happens. You're allowed to do whatever you have a games when you lose sixty games, you're allowed to do whatever you want. Nobody cares what you do. I told you, listen, I know everybody's got an erection over trae young already. I told you this is. Time that word has ever been using the ringer NBA probably a good, good. Good context. There there. There's going to be a little Oklahoma going on with this. Just watch. Watch what I say. He ran through everybody at Oklahoma for about two weeks, and then they lost fifty games in a row to season, and it wasn't as easy as I kill get to go this first time through and I'm not trying to take away from him. I'm not thirty. Five in a win is unbelievable, but I and I know that you roll your eyes at this, but I do believe in when you lose like hell, when you lose a lot and you're able to take whatever shot you wanna take and do whatever you wanna do that. That is not what is necessarily best because I'm seeing it now with kid like Dillon Brooks was able to do anything you wanted to do last year. And now like when you're trying to win games, you can't just do whatever you want to do. And in fairness, I saw years ago, I loved OJ mayo. And anybody can go back and look at this kid almost average twenty points a game. His rookie year, if dare grows didn't exist, he probably would have been the rookie of the year and then you fast forward to win. You know the team became a winning team and guess what? That's not what you are when the team wins, and maybe trae young, we'll be like curry, and that's what you are on a winning team. But I have my doubts of that. That's all say, I'm writing about trailing this week, so I'll save my thoughts for that article. But I will say that I think you're hitting on some good points and I had trae young ranks eleventh for reason. But I do think his play early. The season is very encouraging. Very encouraging wasn't he's a very good player, but more more than that to me that trae young amazing performance in Cleveland was way more about Cleveland. That's just banana. No man and then craze. The one thing about trays, it's not just scoring. It's passing. He's a really, really great passer, and there was also the one thing he's.
