"At that point? Am I doing that? Wouldn't surprise me if there are some exploratory talks between the suns and the pistons. And again, to be clear, this is just me spitballing. I have no reporting of this. That's the name that if I'm throwing all my chips in, I'm trying to get that name. Now, again, that's a tax issue for them going forward because he makes a lot of money. The thing is though JaVale has been so good, the other guy that I was beating the drum for their last year was Larry and ash junior. Now we'll see if Portland's ever opened a moving him. I mean, JaVale has been good enough that I don't really feel like I need a backup 5, that's kind of a luxury. Can you play the four for me? I mean, he's been better as a 5 than a four in Portland, but that's another name I'd look at if Portland ever showed any interest in moving him. Well, another thing that Phoenix has done a good job with is that they've got to they're one of those teams that are well below the tax where they can move one of these combine these two guys and take back the 17 $18 million guy and still stay under. So from a financials angle, that is in play there. So I mean, their window, you know, I mean, I know we don't want to talk about Windows, but they're there, man. Their window, their window is Chris Paul's health. As long as Chris Paul's healthy I'm playing like this, there are windows open. That's right. Bobby marks December 15th is not far away. The chatter is only going to heat up. We're going to need your expertise, your matrices, your highlighters, your charts, your emails, all of it. You are absolutely a home run at your job. We love having you. Enjoy your weekend. Enjoy Florida. Stay safe and we're talking..

"One of my wild card team is Memphis. And I think Memphis is my wild car team every year though, because they still have the expiring contracts. They've got draft assets. They got first round picks. They got a heck of a coach man who's keeping this team together here. That's my wild card team through all this. Not for particular player, but just as far as the right mix of contracts and draft assets out there. Well, slo-mo is one of the most obvious trade candidates in the league is sort of, I don't want to say he's superfluous there, but his role has diminished there and he's expiring and I'm not sure they're in a hurry to pay him. I'm not even sure what his market value is going to be. I can't be done with the Lakers yet, though. I just can't. Oh, let's go. Sorry, I jumped the jump the gun. The more I watched them, and I was a little pessimistic about the Lakers before the season. I don't even know what to think of them anymore because they don't look good and yet they've been such a mess in terms of injuries, including to LeBron James and none hasn't played in ariza hasn't played in Horton Tucker just got back in his house shooting 22% on threes. In terms of lineup, machinations, they seem to have now settled thank God on we're starting Anthony Davis and center because that's the only hope of us scoring enough points with Russ LeBron and AD on the floor of DJ's there. We're not going to do it if the whites said we're not going to do it. There seemed to settle on a rotation a little bit and they have, again, I said this last week with mcmenamin, they have no lineup that displayed more than 53 minutes this season. Every other team in the league has like two or three lineups that have played at least 53 minutes. That's indicative of just how much churn there has been and how much availability has been an issue. So on the one hand you want to say, maybe they can stabilize once they get everybody. On the other hand, LeBron doesn't look right yet, AD's jumper isn't falling. Russ is a disaster every other game and every other game he looks okay and you just look at this and it's like Wayne Ellington? Like, really? I know LeBron lifts up at all boats, but this dude couldn't get on the floor for the freaking pistons, and I like why not only did he set some nice years in the league, particularly in Miami Malik monk. Malik monk's defense this year has been a huge disappointment. I thought maybe he'd be more engaged with the Lakers. Maybe he's just not good at it. Carmelo? He's doing Carmelo's doing his job, which is to hit threes. And hits the occasional along to you just can't play Carmelo Anthony this many minutes in the year of our basketball gods 2022, which had almost is and think you're winning the championship. I just don't know, I don't know what this is. I'll tell you what the problem is not though is Frank Vogel. Frank Vogel is not the problem. Now, was he too loyal to DJ and the bigger lineup constructions? Maybe, but that's been corrected. When you look at everyone that's been available, you'll get the roster. Look, the mirror has to shine on the front office, not the coaching staff, because this roster just doesn't look very good and a lot of people questioned why did you get Russ? You traded an entire functional team for us and I think they need time, but I don't think Frank will was the problem. And people want to say, every time they have a bad loss like last night, you see, well, they're not playing hard for Frank vocal. This is a problem. Well, they played hard from two nights before against Boston. And it was basically yesterday that they played so hard defensively that he was credited along with LeBron and Davis for instilling this defense first mentality that won them the championship like basically yesterday. There is a reason why the ten or 11 players that are in veteran minimum contracts were still on the free agent board. Right? There's a reason why they were veteran. They were signed to the veteran minimum Zach, there was no better offer for Malik monk out there. And yes, you could maybe say we can't base more could have gotten 600,000 more in Golden State. Or Trevor ariza and we can go down a list of there's a reason why they're here and I always say like when you sign veteran minims like the goal is to kind of break go 500, like you can get away with signing patty mills James Johnson and Lamarcus Aldridge, right? Or you know patty's a little bit more than the veteran, but guys like those fringe signings there, trimming around the edges. But when you sign 11 guys to the veteran minimum, it is impossible. I don't care if you have LeBron James at his peak and you're basically just throwing different things out there and it's going to happen again. Like this is going to happen in this off season again. Like these guys are going to be free agents and you're going to be stuck with Russ and LeBron and AD. And you're going to have to go through the same routine again here and I know Kendrick nunn hasn't been healthy and hasn't been played. I know they've had some injuries and certainly there's some things there, but like what was to be expected from a coaching standpoint when you're basically just trying to mix and match different lineups and you're tradable assets where traded in the Westbrook trade with when you break up that contract with Kuzma, KCP mantras, yeah, they're not a level players, but there's something that you could have maybe used down the road. Caruso, you know, I know that's been that horse has been playing well. Every single one of them is playing really well..

"Popped off this week about I want the ball more. I want to pick and roll more. I want to be more involved in the offense. That's cool. And I think you can probably do that a little bit. But what miles Turner gets the ball in an open space, I do not have a lot of confidence that he's going to make the correct read at the correct speed. Like I just don't so I don't know I bet the warriors look at both of those guys like yeah, interesting to price was right maybe. If the price is wrong to use a happy Gilmore reference with the price is wrong, maybe I'm not that interested. Well, if the price is wrong, then you've just lost basically all your tradeable assets, right? Like that's kind of that's the deal there. And I think you're right about Golden State as far as not being in a rush to do anything, figure out where they are from February 10th and if there's something that makes sense, you do it and if not, you roll with the current roster. Let's switch gears and sort of go around the trade landscape rapid fire. If you heard any concern from nets world about James Harden's impending free agency and the fact that the extension remains unsigned. No. Based on lack of teams with cap space and if it came to a problem where Hardin was going to decline that option and test free agency that you always have the sign and trade option out there to kind of recoup what you lost. Now my big my concern and this is not talking for the nets is that what's the number going to be? Is it still going to be $270 million for James Harden? Yep. Spoiler alert. Yes, it will. It will be all the money. Yeah. And it's funny someone asked me a question last night about shifting gears real quick. Bradley Beal. Would you still play Bradley Beal that contract or an extension or a mass supermarket? Yeah. I would. Can you imagine after all this rigmarole over the last three years of Bradley Beal rigmarole? I don't even know where rigmarole is, but it's not great to experience, I don't think. If Tommy shepherd said, hey, Bradley, let's have a meeting. You know, you're not playing as amazing as you have the last couple of years. It's a lot of money. You're gonna be in your early to mid 30s by the time this deal concludes. What do you think about like a little haircut? I know we've just been begging you to stay for like three straight years. What do you think about like, you take like 90% of your Mac? How do you think that would go over with Bradley? Well, probably wouldn't go over the option letter would probably be filed by his agent Mark barrel Steen. As far as for that, I don't think that would go over very well, but usually what happens with these extensions is that you're basically paying for the past, not what's going to happen down the road, and that's where you get yourself in the most trouble. But what are your options for teams? Like you just basically cross your fingers hopefully it works out and that player somehow reverts back to that all star harden man, but that's the commitment when Brooklyn made the trade. Did they think they were going to get the James Harden we see now? No, but their options are limited unless they do want to figure out the sign and trade method there. Like, I hear Philadelphia. I get it. I can think of one. I hear it. And it's out there and I know it's being talked about just based on the relationship with Daryl and James and stuff. And yeah, I mean, if the Simmons situation hasn't been resolved, I think that's something that you will probably look at when we get into the off season. And then Daryl and James would have to their tier four reunion where they sit down and talk about analytically sophisticated shot selection and you know it's the whole thing. I don't know who the hell knows. Well, that was my next question. Is there anything on Ben Simmons? Do we have anything? Is there anything? Is there anything going on? Because I haven't heard, I haven't heard anything. I think Indiana would and has kicked the tires, but without brogden, I just don't see a pathway to a deal there, Minnesota, same thing. I think both those things would have to be a three team deal. Portland clearly CJ is not going to get it done without a whole bundle of picks. To me, to me, the Simmons, CJ McCollum, and look, CJ comment that has a collapsed lung. So we don't even know when he's coming back. To me, the sweet spot where the rubber meets the road for both teams is McCollum, two first round picks, and we can fight about the protection and we will. But it's gotta be two. Two, two is better than one for Philly and three is too many for me if I'm Portland and I'm facing what might be some pain. Even if we get Simmons and nasir little or anthracites pick one. That's the package where I think if we can't if that's not a landing spot, then we do not have a landing spot that doesn't involve Damian Lillard. Yeah, I mean, I think that's the most that you can do, you know, certainly with you mentioned the pics as far as two, but from a from an appeal from Philly standpoint, it's like, you know, certainly a CJ because of the salary and certainly because of the value and then it's got to be one of the other young players because after that, Zach like, what's left, right? Covington doesn't do it for me. It doesn't fill in the, you know, a need. I mean, that I mean, there's so many guys that have been the Dennis Smith zeller Snell. Like.

"I must be president of the time lord fan club, 'cause every time people are trying to fake trade the Celtics center, I'm like, they have an amazing center. I love Robert Williams. A team is probably a team that has no chance that at all. Probably the Lakers. I don't know. Who is it Memphis? No, they don't need them. I don't know who is it? Golden State. Oh, Golden State, of course. Talk me through it. It's not bob Myers DNA. It is not his DNA to do an in season trade. I know they did one, I think last year to shed money, but when that team, when that dynasty team was rolling from like 14 to 19, they did not make one in season trade at all. Like they just kind of roll with who they are and they I mean, yeah, if you want to basically put all your wise men come in, moody, guys like that out there. You know, cobble together those three players. Then I would start the rebuild in Indiana a little bit, you know, get that ball going, but I don't know. I don't see it just because of, you know, unless bob thinks that this is kind of like, hey, we got a this is our window right now. We're going to do something, you know, sabonis Turner type thing. I think they have enough, I think they have enough to win at all, but I don't know. I mean, of course, this team is different than KD team, the KD team, and even the 1415 team, but I just don't see it there, Zach. The window is open. The window has been the window's been blown open by a hurricane. Like the window, there isn't even though when there's no screen, the window is open, but look, here's the thing. When they lost that first Phoenix game and ate and just looked like a giant among lilliputians in the post, there was a sort of overreaction I think of, well, the warriors need to worry to center and wiseman's not going to be the answer in loony can only play 1518 minutes a game they need to center and then the pacers stuff blow up. Okay, naturally, here's a match. I've shaken some trees, I think you're reading it correctly for now. The warriors are 21 and four. The best record of the NBA, they have the best defense in the NBA and the top three offense. They're not in a hurry to do anything dramatic to their roster, especially since something dramatic is about to happen to their roster with the return of Klay Thompson. I think they're just like, okay, chill. It looks like all evidence suggests we have enough right now that when we play small with draymond at center or auto Porter, bay alita, who pick them at center, we're pretty damn good. The other thing is, but I get the idea. The idea is we can add a player like that one of these pacers big men without trading literally one minute of meaningful rotation, basketball from our current team, that's kind of appealing. The problem is that there are other problems number one, there are so far over the tax that every additional dollar is like I mean you do the math. We're not even yeah, we're in a different level. It's like fractals. So we're not in a like level 8 tax bracket, which is, if they're just like, I don't even know if the CBA covers how far away. It ends after a certain thing, and then you have to do the math manually. So they've blown away the tax bracket there. That's pretty funny. So unless it's like an exact salary match, the owners are going to look at this and be like, is this worth a gazillion more dollars? And wiseman plus kamenga, which is the deal construction where you're not taking anything from your current roster, that's currently playing, does it is like 3 million or 4 million short of a current match. If you add moody, you get closer, but now you're really just trading everything you've picked in the last couple of years. Wiseman commingle loony kind of gets you there, but now you are trading away from your current team and you can poo poo Looney if you want. They love loony. And Looney has been really good for their team. So I don't necessarily know that I see it. You also have like I wonder it would be interesting to talk to the warriors brass and be like, which one, this in theory, you could get either one, which one would you want? So bonus has the playmaking instincts and the feel that I like offensively defensively he's a minus. Also, his playmaking stems often from him having the ball a lot and holding the ball a lot and they don't have holding the ball in their DNA. Flip it around and he's not a shooter. They've tried to make them a shooter this year he's not a shooter. Doesn't seem to every time he takes a three, I just, it seems so reluctant. It's like I almost feel like I wish I could see his face up, but he's frowning every time he winds up to take a three. Turner gives me the shooting, which I crave in need gives me defense, which I crave and I guess need, even though I have the number one defense in the NBA, I don't know whatever. Maybe I needed for 8 or jokic or whatever. But the feel has always been the thing with miles Turner..

"And now the local welcome to the low post podcast on a Friday morning where it is December 10th, which means when we all reconvene after a weekend of revelry, I don't know I have a lot of revelry in my life actually. It will be two days before a whole entire slew. Of NBA players becomes trade eligible, which means trade season is here. The chatter is heating up, Portland fired its GM last week launching a whole round of trade rumors that their new GM Joe cronin sought to quell quell during his introductory press conference saying we are enhancing we are not tearing down we are enhancing our 11 and 15 train wreck of a team where everybody is injured and we're not winning any games. The pacers might be open for business might not be open for business might have always been open for business is unclear how much business they're open to to help us sus everything out and oh by the way, the Lakers still stink and lost to the grizzlies of 22 turnovers last night. Can they do anything? Bobby marks. How about Zach? How are you? It's been a while. Link in the NBA is an early December is usually kind of quiet and hasn't been so quiet. No. And we're going to get started getting busy come to December 15th when most of these free agents can be become trade eligible. It's ironic, though. I don't want to throw cold water on December 15th, but the last trade that happened right on December 15th was you're then New Jersey nets traded turns Williams to the rockets in 2000 ten, I believe for two first round picks. Two. Talk about a trade that could never, ever happen today. How did that happen? I don't know. You know, Terence had still had a lot of value because of his versatility and we wound up getting a Sasha bullet check and come on now. I didn't even want to say I just want to say Sasha because I knew I was going to get ridiculed about one of the most one of the most punchable players in the last 20 years. For some reason, just, I don't know if it was the hair or the little soccer player headband, the little thin headband he wore sometimes very punchable. Well, before we get into a ten second story, when we did the trade and we got him, I think we were shooting 26% from three and he came in and hit four threes the first game and I said, this guy's great. This guy, and then I think you just shot 30% for the rest of the year. But it's one of those deals where when you don't have anything and you get a little bit of something, it's nice for at least for that one game. I thought you were gonna say we traded for him and then I saw him in person and I also wanted to punch his face. I thought that's what you were gonna say. I thought you were gonna elaborate on the punch ability. Well, we had a great wives room when we had Maria Sharapova and Kim Kardashian. I mean, that was our wives group as far as her girlfriend's group back then. I mean, talk about a high profile. That's a scene. That's a scene without it's just a scene. The paparazzi probably want to get in there. I don't know about paparazzi and norc though. They're not much paparazzi and nok. You're seeing it. I say Newark, you're going accelerate nurk. Yeah. Okay, anyway, so the big news of the week involved the Indiana Pacers, the athletic wrote a big story about how the pacers who at that point I think were 11 and 16 or ten and 16 and were as I called them the most aggressively boring and unwatchable team in the NBA were open for business in herb Simon who will cheap out on every aspect of running a team and avoid the tax as if it is death itself was suddenly going to detonate willing to detonate the team, go in the tank, do the thing that the pacers to their credit have never ever done which is trade all these guys for future picks. Bottom out, attendance to hell who cares. Let's do it. Let's rebuild and much ado is made of this report. Let's just sort of big picture. How and since then, of course, the patients have won two consecutive games, including a blowout of the Knicks. They have a better point differential than several current playoff and play in teams in the Eastern Conference suggested that if they could just get out of their own freaking way and crunch time, they might actually be able to make a run here. All of these players are top four guys. Minus TJ Warren who's injured are all good talented players. What do you read this? How real is this? I have my own opinion, but I'm interested to hear what your take is. Yeah, I mean, I think any time they were, you know, 11 and 16 out of the plan, as you said, they've won two games. There's nobody that's untreatable, except for Malcolm Brogdon on that roster who signed that extension, right? I think you're open for business, but what extent and are you just willing to take the best deal possible for miles Turner or Karis levert?.

"They're getting season for taking josh. Primo really good names in this draft by the way. If you don't think i'm bones highland fan all my god The only reason we're getting season ds and fs for that pick is because it was mocked to be. He was mocked to be in the late twenties. Well what if all the marks were just wrong and and you know he was valued higher than that. Let's see how let's see how it plays out on on that front with josh primo. It doesn't turn nineteen until december oof. I mean he is a young one and they can basically mold them how he sees. He's a terrific. A great a great person like he fits perfectly and it's funny. I had two teams Text me last thing. Like like wasn't san antonio like they would be getting really killed. You know like people have kind of giving him a little bit of the benefit and the benefit of the doubt with that pick so and no and phoenix got no benefit of the turned out. They were fine on that big a back oklahoma city. You know dave set the land speed record for already people are like. What are they going to turn. All these picks up the players. When are they going to jump into contention this and that it. This just started now. Had they traded shea for anything but like a top three pick. And i don't even think he was really on board for that if they treated him. That's a different story. Then you can start asking the question of well wait a second. What's the difference between this and hanky. Why are we allowing this to happen. I think it's very likely that shea signs an extension with the thunder early in free agency. Maybe for the max and maybe for five years and beyond that. This is oklahoma city. This is not a trade for this not in this condition. Let's trade for this guy with a year left on his contract. Who's twenty eight years old because we think you'll stay here. That's not this market. This market has to build a different way and until they trade alexander in a backward moving trade. i think that noise is really premature for one. None of these picks are. I'm sorry to bring it up. Brooklyn level picks. That are in boston's wheelhouse where their blue chip picks. We just don't know what any of these pixel clippers. Picks rockets picks picks from all over the universe picks from mars space jam. I don't even know like we just don't know what they are and so they're like. Oh yeah cobb. All these picks together if they were blue chip picks the thunder might've had the number one picking the draft last night. They're not and so they didn't and shake your center is really good and maybe he is the kind of guy that someday the right guy says. Hey you know if you trade for me. I've got two years left on my deal. I will stay here so i the thunder are just going to do the same. If they can't get into the number one pick stratosphere. They're just going to do the same thing. They've done two drafts. Which is polka. Who you want that guy. Here's to future. I got thirty two guy. They took a thirty two. We want that guy. Here's to future second second trip. There's gonna make that trade over and over again. And i think for now that's fine. Yeah i mean they kind of. They're almost like memphis. They kind of know who they are right with. I agree with you regarding if they had moved shea. You know it's like will win this. When is this time. Line star white reynoza's like roster retooling retooling star and as as far as the pixie and it's funny when i rewrote their off-season article. I tear them right. Like i took all whatever eighteen picks and i put them into into three tiers because we always say oh my god they at eighteen i in nineteen. I in like the brooklyn are in the tier one. Because they're unprotected. Same with the clippers. But the as you know like those could be in the twenties like those eventually turn out to be the twentieth..

"They thought he was a little bit overconfident in arrogant hair. So and in endure on sharp to of gives you a big so. I think the big thing will be what happens with the andre jordan. Now right can they find it figure out how to get off his money in. You've got all these free agents. With certainly with bruce brown. We'll see what happens with You know we'll see what happens with with with blake. Okay casey is interesting. Just because as you said like they they. They came in with three first from picks camilli. They can they left with like six right like it just like it's like the slot machine like you. Just keep up but money in any keeps on coming out and they get another one from utah in the favors deal which is probably going to start in two thousand twenty four. You know the detroit. When they got a who knows if ever comes to fruition. Because there's so much there's so much protection on that You know so i mean. Hey sam's got a plan and the interesting thing was was oklahoma. City's like you know this was the first. I think the only the second year out of like fifteen years haven't made the playoffs so let's see where this thing goes a little bit here the clips. I the as you said like. They turned chicken blank into something right. Like he on johnson. I like he on jonathan at twenty twenty one and then. Bj boston in jason preston. You know they're they realised is going to be out. Let's get some wings and let's start a little bit of a Squad by quasi youth movement. The i said before i think collide injury makes it much more likely. They just use their picks for young players. I did not expect it to be so aggressive trading and trading in and. I think that was that was smart by the chicken. The chicken salad thing is a really good metaphor because chicken salads. Not that good. It's just like a chicken salad. Is the minimum acceptable barbecue. Like side dish like sometimes. It's got too much mayo. It's like a little soggy. It's store bought. Chicken salad is like always a bad idea. Just when it sitting under that case. It's it's if the metaphor we're like a food that was chew good wouldn't work. Chicken salad is up. I understand there's gonna be some chicken salad. Acolytes that take issue with me. Yeah you put some spices on their. It's fresh that it can be raisins raising some nights. I'm a fan of capers. I don't know if capers go and chickens up. And i would just eat capers right out of the jar By the way. Back to the spurs josh primo. A twelve the first name i thought of when they pick josh premo. Twelve was cam. Johnson because there are a couple of things we need to settle down number one everyone lambasted to cam. Johnson pic water reach day. Should've traded back. I can't even further. I can't believe they got kim. Turns out cam. johnson's good. The only reason..

"Guild alexander never. I never really bought that. He was quote unquote available. I mean everyone but like three guys in the nba is like theoretically available. I never really got the was realistically available. We talked about the knicks. I thought the clippers and the nets. Very interestingly sort of being aggressive in draft assets like the clippers trading up to twenty one and then trading for thirty three and getting basketball blogger jason preston with the thirty third pick And and the nets getting twenty nine and twenty seven and giovan carter. Which john carter and bruce brown battles practice could be a lot of fun. They lost shamet. Obviously i john. Carter started shooting threes last year with a with a little audacity. I kind of liked it. Forty percent on corner threes. I those two teams getting aggressive in the draft. I thought was smart trying to trying to get cheap contracts and then you mentioned some teams. You know we're not that active last night. Miami dallas boston. Pick pick one of these teams. Who's interesting to you. Why i think brooklyn just because although they have an an extremely wealthy owner. I do believe there is a a cost associated as when it comes to this roster as far as paying a steep luxury tax. You did at it. You did that in a first round pick so you add a little bit of money there but i think that the with landry you know. There's there was concerns as far as what the cost was going to be from extension in when he kicked Restricted free agency. So you got out in front of that a little bit earlier. I talked to a couple of teams last night and they had camp. Thomas like in the top fourteen like he. They had them on their board. Like you know thirteen fourteen i. He's one of those guys. i did. the prep-work draft wise and for his interviews. I loved the kid man. i mean. he's got. He's got an edge to hymns. Act like you know disciplined edge by. He'll put up with anything here. And i think that kinda turn teams off a little bit..

"I'm sweating a little bit more about the knicks than than i was before even a guy like i would. I'm a guy who's frequency hasn't been talked about all that much outside miami. I'm keeping my dunkin robinson. Because i think some team is gonna throw a lot of money at dunkin robinson because his skill is what everybody wants and he's absolutely elite at it. I would just keep my eye on that situation so derozen to simplest outcome when you say who's gonna pay a player and you can't find an example. We got to the nixon the bulls but his incumbent team. I don't. I have tried really hard to get a gauge on san antonio's appetite for resigning derosa a couple of weeks ago. Ten days ago it seemed like eighty to ninety ten. He was leaving then. I heard someone say might be more like sixty forty fifty fifty. I don't know what's going on there. But that decision to me is really interesting in tandem with rudy. Patty mills who. I think you know they'd like to bring back as he's a. He's the sort of standard bear. Now of spurs culture. You know obviously lamarcus has gone in our tired like you lose to rosen. That was such a big cog in your offense. I wonder if they look. I'm i would be fascinated. By how many games can the spurs win if they just go basically with all the young guys or do they use their cap space which have a ton of on a young ish free agent. Who sort of fits their timeline. Lowry marketing be an example. Somebody like that even -fornia who's not that young but you could get him if they if they get another good player to catch. How good is that team. Which just young guys are they. A thirty five win team where you're still trapped in the middle or in the ultracompetitive west. Have you sort of semi accidentally semi on purpose. Giving yourself a one year trough to get a high draft pick which i think is the other way that they find someone to round them out. But i don't know what they're doing with the roads and if you force me to bet. I bet the rosen's on another team next year but i don't feel awesome about it. I don't feel like it's a lock. It's funny when you're talking about san antonio there's no blueprint as far as how they've done things. Besides drafting develop right like i wrote about. I'm like i wrote. They've never really married. Caught married outside the family cap. Space lamarcus aldridge. I think passover like the only two guys they've signed with cap space in the last like five or six years There's no track record of them to be a team like taking back. Bad contracts in draft picks right like we've seen in the past with teams like atlanta. They're and now like new york. They have the potential of fifty million dollars to be kind of that acts up to take back. Bad contracts and draft picks year. But we've never really seen them do it here so i think we're going to learn a little bit about san antonio as far as you know what i think what they do this off season. Kinda kinda like land tracts. As far for what what happens next year also i had one. Gm told me months ago. The spurs have just never been part of the nba's trading ecosystem ecosystem was never that makes it sound so fancy it's an ecosystem of traits. Obviously they've made trades like detroit for on draft is an alzheimer than they had to trade kawhi leonard and i think that's where obviously things start to go haywire to come out of that without any of toronto's good young players. I mean pearls good. But that's not derosa and plus pertile is not the ideal and they did get the picked up begin celtic johnson. But still you'd like to get something better out of that and then hanging on. I think a year too long to derozen. Aldridge is a whole thing. There are other interesting things that happened last night. Oklahoma city made one of its traded sixteen to the rockets and then made another one of its. Let's flip first round picks around picks for one and get a guy we want which. I think. We're gonna see that kind of trade a lot from them in the next five or ten years kept shea..

"Because i don't feel like i have the reporting hard enough but i think they've got some plans. I don't think it was a total accident. They opened up an extra three million and cap space. Are they derozen team. It's certainly been floated. I guess i get the fit on. Maybe a two year deal. I don't love it for them. I really love rosen so much. He's a great floor razor though what's happening with him whereas you're gonna go. Yeah i mean. I thought the lakers before everything happened would have been a possibility right but at the end of the day like you know. Then you're asking san antonio to cooperate right. You're you're basically asking san antonio to take back a More of a scaled down version of the of the wizards package that they received like kuzma mantras in twenty in twenty two. Those two guys would have gone into cafe so we can. We can throw them off off the list. We can throw a team like the Have any money to go so now. You're looking at teams like dallas. Right but tim hardaway. Junior duck right. Yuck now you're looking at teams like chicago but they have to go through hoops to create room. That is a name. I've heard for derozen and yet unlike okay derozen levin vuckovich. We're going to give up defense. Which don't care soup. It will be the twenty third best defensive mba. Just hope to god we can win enough games. I don't. I don't love that. I like the idea of another playmaker with levin. I just don't i. That would not be my choice. Yeah i mean even you know even a team like you know. Miami's the other team Cap space but at the cost of some of their consumer. There guys there. How does he fit with with jimmy. Butler right And then we come back to new york. They are in the pole position that when we talk about cap space. They've got like a fifty fifty three right now and can. It can go up higher. Because they've got a bunch of these non guaranteed contracts so. I think that is a team. We should probably circle. Talking about the rosen depends on what is asked is going to be you know. Is it going to be twenty. Five million is going to be twenty six million on a on a two year deal. I think i would probably do that. I think i'd have a little bit of a harder time on on a three year deal and is there a point guard coming with him right like that's kind of like let's kind of like a package kinda like a package deal there but they have the if they want to go out and get them. They can do it yet you know. They've got the money to do it. I don't know what they're doing with that cap space now. No word to rosen's going. I don't know what new york's appetite is to have their cap space part of it taken up with an offer sheet that can hold you up. For what seventy two hours. Ninety six hours for it is. Today's i don't know what their appetite for that is because today's as an attorney in free agency lots of players go off the board but if they're confident that they've now open up enough cap space to do that and have multiple balls in the air. I if i have a good restricted free agent..

"Signed a trades. Anyone you want to sign and trade to them that precludes it happening everyone to my knowledge and again you can't reach everyone on draft. It's crazy but to buy knowledge. Everyone almost everyone i could talk to. That was on the involved in the potential buddy. Healed kings trade was kind of blindsided when it fell apart at the end Now let's let's talk about russ Russia's a great player he got legitimate all. nba support last year. Another great. triple double season for the wizards. And i think that there is something to the notion that perhaps we the commentariat fetish is shooting and spacing at the expense of. Just who's freaking good at basketball a little bit and russell westbrook is freaking good. And we've seen it over and over again that if you take really good really physical really smart players and put them together. They can compensate through their. I q their ferocity their pressure on the rim and westbrook still pressures the rim as much as anyone in the league. Although although his rim attempts frequency dipped a little bit alarmingly last year in washington with a corresponding jump at mid-range jumpers which are barf in threes which are super duper barf. And we can talk about why that might be what it means. But again i iq veracity passing interior passing. You can make up for some spacing limitations and yes you can give me all the stuff about how ruskin run the offense when lebron rests and lebron needs a secondary creator to take the load off me when he's on the floor that was the idea was sure i get all of it. Here's the thing the difference between russia and all these other guys that you wanna talk about whether it's shooter rondo all the alleged non-shooters they've had next to lebron in this role as a russia's the worse shooter be he shoots the most each suits basically everyone in the nba. So it's a volume issue like those other guys knew their role. We have seen zero evidence. That russ is okay. Shooting the third most attempts on his team. So there's a volume issue there so those three. We've had this dialogue for. There's a two strands of overarching dialogue. That we feel like we've been having for fifteen years number one. Oh my god russ could be an incredible cutter if you really committed to it. Hey look at those two. Ato's that the thunder rand in two thousand thirteen when russ cut baseline and got dunks. Wow commission bottle that and he could set screens for lebron like lebron shooter pick and roll became and it never ever happens. It still hasn't happened. He just does nothing when he doesn't have the ball and other narrative that has happened sometimes. Is well lebron. He should be a power forward but he wants to play the three. Ad he should be a senator but he wants to play the force. The lakers have failed. And andre terminent dwight howard and blah blah. And you know. we've we've been having this discussion cleveland. What position is lebron. Ultimately it hasn't mattered so much because lebron aid the amazing you could play them with me and our producer and we'd be pretty freaking good but but i think given russes limitations as shooter. It's now going to matter more than ever and we have seen those guys commit to those roles in the playoffs when it matters. And so i think it. Maybe it's a non issue but we might have to see them commit to it a little bit more because that's what introducing russell westbrook team means. Yeah i mean it's a it's a fascinating experimented. It feels like kind with ross. It's he you know he's better when there's less around him right like the year in that. You're in oklahoma city post post durant by now you know. Let's see what happens when lebron is primarily the primary ball handler. Y'all how does he fit in. You know like that's and that's the that's the big thing. Thank you know you hear people say well. We'll they'll they'll make it work like i've heard that before right. I heard that a lot with different teams as far as when you're putting roster together. They'll they'll they'll make it work and now it just like it's put so much pressure on you to go out there and and figure out what roster spots six fourteen are going to be right now and the other thing. Is you know when the healed stuff was popping. I kept hearing you know. Yeah i liked. I like to fit of yield on offense. I mean if you put shooting around lebron. It's just a home run. We were twenty years into this. Like great shooters play. Great with run. Buddy healed is one of the greatest shooters in the history of basketball. That sounds like hyperbole. It's not part of. It is just a buddy healed was was grew up in basketball at a time when threes steph curry were thing but in terms of volume accuracy. He's one of the best shooters ever. But i kept hearing. Well defensively he saw. He's not very long. Isn't try hard. Like how is that. Gonna feel with the lakers. Like i thought narrative russell westbrook was a good defensive player died five years ago he. He's not a good defensive player. either now he he. He has a sort of sometimes misapplied effort to him where he runs around and around he gets rebounds and that is the rebounding is actually really important. The lakers to be a good team. But he's not a plus defender and to me if he doesn't have one more great defensive year in him. I think that becomes a major question for the lakers. But i am done doubting lebron's defense. I think he probably does have one great defensive. You're in and even if they have to go brown. Ad at four and five and they're a little smaller and the lakers twenty twenty when they won love to be a huge deal loved. Having if we trap with our center we travel they d- you got to huge dudes behind the play. We love that and even if you have to sacrifice some of that size i think lebron ad defensively is still really really strong but the burden just gets bigger and bigger and bigger on those two guys to real and the culture that frank vogel has instilled in the lead to really really lift you on that end. Yeah i mean. I think we're going to see a lot of ad at five right. I mean that's just gonna it's gonna be how it is and it's it's amazing though that that we've went from a team at one A championship a year. It wasn't even a year less than a year ago because it was orlando and this this rosters white clean. I mean it is white clean completely. There's no there's no player on this roster that has been drafted. No first round picks on his roster. And that's that is an all in you'll went based on the ad trade. We we understand why they did that. And now few we you know. Kuzma's gone traded your first this year. That's why i like the healed trade because it it still kept ek. Still allowed you to maybe do something with casey p. And allowed you do something with that. Pick from my understanding. The sacramento part was was was healed for mantras and coups mma and not the pick so it gave you kind of two cracks at the apple. Here where you could use. Casey pick do something else. But now you basically just pushed it all middle and say here you go and now you have you have nothing left besides as we talked about your own free agents in your tax mid level and your veteran minimum exception. Let's simplify. lebron axiom for his career is if lebrons.

"Qualities including dwight howard. Just running over the last night in game seven. That was a fun. That was a fun like to irritants just colliding in the stupidest way possible and then trae doing push. Ups push ups push ups are bad ass. I am very pro doing pushups particularly when you're the little guy in the collision it's definitely. I don't know that there's much better way to resolve it like you're not going to go away like flexing necessarily but that's a way for you to show your strength. I suppose get trays. Take a ton of floaters to your point. Yeah and i. I am hopeful. You mentioned your offense in this series. I think it's going to be interesting because he was carrying such a heavy load in terms of minutes and defensive assignments and it's not get easier in defensive assignments in this series. But maybe the minutes won't be as severe and maybe that helps him get going as a shooter. Well that is my second. Biggest question is who does trae on guard. Because if they start this. If milwaukee starts the same jumbo lineup with tougher jaanus and lopez. Which i guess but we can talk about whether that's a decision maker. Not but maybe they'll start fours whatever coniston lineup. No matter who they start you can put capella on jaanus. Which is a matchup will see a lot or you can put collins on yanni's we'll see both we're gonna see a lot of people on. Yeah so let's just say they start cappella and goddess collins on brook lopez. Which is the alignment that they used a lot in the regular season. Cappelli honest is a fun. A fun match up to then you put if they continue to start herder bogdonovich tb. I guess you put her in bogdonovich on the combination of middleton in holiday that you hide trae young on pj tucker. We just saw them hide the net tied. James harden pj tucker. Is that where we ended up seeing trae young because in pre playoffs pre bucks with the jumble lineup trae young was on whoever. The leftover guy was even kenzo. Like that's how they set it up. I'm i if. I had to guess. I think they will. If if that's the lineup. The buck star. I think they will put on. Pj tucker and then just say you want involve me. You gotta have pj tucker at the center of your offense. And we'll take trade off so one of the reasons to go back to how milwaukee has been able to win two rounds without shooting the ball well and often the perimeter. A lot of that has been offensive rebounding. Which has been a big difference from this year's team last year's team it was clearly one of the adjustments. They made in the wake of that miami series and i think it was something we talked about before. The series is an area that they needed to win. And then you know. I'm not gonna. There was a key offensive. Rebound i guess it was at before the durant shot in overtime or in regulation but they excited my boy bruce brown just all over the offensive glass in game seven. This was a milwaukee in one. And i was like if that saves their season offensive. Rebound that would be kind of a fitting testament to the changes. They magna ultimately. It was a defensive stop. It said their season. Not that play. But i is so if that ends up being the matchups i think you send. Pj tucker to the offensive glass and pizza. I think pj tucker will send himself to the offense and in the process. Send trae young with like a well-timed hip checker new flying out of bounce because pj tucker loves offensive rebounding and particularly loves the baseline offensive rebound. He loves just uses big but knocking people out of the way and get offense runs on the baseline and you absolutely nailed it. If trae young is hiding there. And i still think is at might be what i would do. If i were date mcmillan i would say okay. Offensive rebounds we'll have to gang rebound with cappella and collins coming in to help us out. We'll we'll take that chance. If it means trae gets to hide on top rb what where would you put him. Which put him on holla. I mean what are my choices. I don't have great choices. Yeah i mean. One thing i do expect is the bucks. Offense should probably be a little less one on one centric than it was against brooklyn. It couldn't be more if i don't know if i could watch the games but dramatically less i think we're gonna see more to men actions and that becomes interesting is well and should i take the let me. Just take notes to man actions. You're going to be emailed train over that shoe man actions okay. They did run a fair. They ran a lot of the oddest screener. Pick and roll. So i'm being a little facetious but whatever. Yeah i mean. They got a huge bucket on that one in. I guess that was late in regulation that the end of game. Seven is all run together for me at this point. But peter tucker is not gonna be the guy initiating so that's the other advantage of putting trae young on him. I think what's more interesting for the hawks in terms of defensive lineups is you mentioned assuming they stick with bogdonovich hers. The starting wings. Do you think they can do that. Against chris middleton i. I wonder whether solomon hill comes back into the lineup. At least to start this series. Well mr hill looms as an interest i mean. I can't believe i'm saying this sullivan hill looms as a potentially interesting piece in this series because they also used him as a backup janas defender quite a bit And they've used them. He was a c. Started the beginning of the the philly series before they said. We need more shooting on the floor. We're getting killed in your minutes The hill collins. Cappella combo is minus. Twenty in forty minutes for the play offs. I actually think you know. This certainly isn't a defensive but actually think they found something with gallon. Ari collins capella against philly. Philly obviously plays a very big starting five with simmons harris in bead tucker janas lopez is similar. I don't know that they'll start gallon..

"They just kind of lost to a better team. They're just they're they're playing with with great spunk. In but yet. The phoenix phoenix is playing without chris paul yet. You know it's easy to sit here and say will the jazz need more athleticism on the wing. They need a bigger wing. Who can defend and do enough to stay on the floor. offensively okay. So they need the most coveted kind of player in the entire nba. That's that's all they need. They need they need to turn royce. O neil end the thirtieth pick in the draft which they can trade. I believe after the draft right. Yes so you're gonna turn royce royce. Neil in the thirtieth of the draft. Who is going to be an athletic. Two way wing. That's that's or jordan. Clarkson and the thirtieth biggest is going to be an athletic six eight wing who can shoot threes in defender. Okay okay what you're really going to do is you're gonna take a lot of shots on guys like torrey craig. Does kinda got at torrey. Craig is really helping. The phoenix suns. He's been tremendous in the playoffs. He's playing like fifteen minutes a game. He's not on the floor for a of crunch time. Like this is a tough. Ask for this franchise to get that kind of player. But they're just you mentioned something before it just made me laugh about just how difficult it is to build teams utah. So here's how utah gets to be the number one seed their highest draft picks during this sort of post millsaps jefferson rigmarole are trey burke bust dot. Xm uber bust right. The two picks it ends up being are thirteen and twenty seven mitchell angle bear both acquired via trade both from the denver nuggets one of which i believe is still the last first round pick to be sold for straight cash. I think there's also the token yeah. There's something else that there. But i think kevin porter and with spot in the detroit cleveland trade but this was but there was like five seconds during this is a straight cash deal it. Then they're star free agent leaves for nothing and they still survive that it doesn't it doesn't end up mattering and it just. You couldn't duplicate that if you tried a and and they did a great job to make to make those pictures just going to be. I just don't know what the path we could sit here and name me all these things that you can get on the minimum. You know i mean nick. Petunias available on the minimum. And he's been monstrously important for the clippers and played even better since guac so it is possible. I just think to act as if one of those guys is gonna come in and be that player for you for thirty minutes a game. It takes a lot of luck and maybe three or four shots at it before you find one. I just don't really see what the path is for them now. There's front offices way smarter than me. Maybe they'll find what maybe there's the maybe there's even dramatic changes coming there than we think. I mean that was a really really bad loss. Game six was a really really bad loss. Yeah but but it's hard for me just to think that there's an overhaul here. You just laid it out. As far as we're the roster is unless it's going to be one of your your sixth man or your one year rotational players that impacted. You know they're not gonna find it with the thirtieth I don't think you're gonna find out. What the thirtieth pick and if you do might be three years from that you know that kid is not to be right now maybe two or three years from now and you hit it on the wings like we always went through that exercise new jersey and brooklyn like those guys are journey round like we all want them. We want wings wings. That can defend meg. a couple of threes. they're just not there for you especially not non at the minimum number man. You better find an under the radar guy that we're talking like january. We're we're that guy. Come from well it was interesting that they drafted a center in the most recent draft when they have a great very good starting center in gobert did say before that the most the more damaging to be about gobain performance against the clippers was ability to do all that much offense that said their defense was just bad mean. The clippers scored like one hundred and twenty five hundred possessions in that series. Their defense was also not good. He gets memphis grizzlies. Pick them apart. pick their defensive. Partout defense was better with gobert on the floor that but still just they did not have a good defensive play offs the the number one or two of their number two defense in the nba didn't work in the playoffs and donovan. Mitchell the last thing is you know. Interestingly the stuff about the ankle so i looked up his shot distribution in the regular season twenty. Three percent of his shots came at the rim average number for for a guy his position against the clippers when he was dealing with a leg injury and didn't have any personal lists twenty. Three percent of his shots came at the rim. he took a lot more threes. But all of the threes came at mid range. Shots i just. I'm not saying that. He was clearly injured in hampered. I'm just saying that he still played really well. I don't. I don't know how much more you can ask for him from him. Well yeah i mean it's it's you know it's not like he just behind the three point arc just chop them up here. You know he. He's still a you mentioned. He's still attack the basket here and he did plenty played great. I mean he played. Well i mean but that the other day team will be remembered by giving up eighty points in the second half in game six and not taking advantage of kawhi leonard. Not being there. It's it's a big disappointment for them. When kawhi leonard got hurt they should won the they should be in the conference finals. They should be talking themselves up as we might be the favorite together the west. Or at least we can go toe to toe with phoenix. Even though phoenix was three elegance season now they go home. They have a lot of tough questions to answer Bobby marks no one better our shop at answering those questions than you. Thank you for your time. Thank you for not wearing vineyard. Vine shirt podcast. Hopefully i'll see you soon. It's.

"Middle here when you when you do. I like it. I mean you know it makes sense you know. Yeah you mentioned you've got to send some you know some more money to try to even it out a little bit here. But you're targeting those small market rebuild type teams. That would not be able to get a ben simmons in free agency. That your target teams. It's like what else in darren williams with utah. Nine ten years ago we couldn't have gotten darren williams and free agency. We had trade form. We were a middle of the road rebuilding type team in utah realized that and targeted us. The trade ben. Simmons is is is a better basketball player that he looked in the last two weeks. Yes he's a good player so easily and my way. Even you have to credit. Even as he's having a complete melt malfunction on offense never stopped on defense and really bothered trae on all the way down to the end of that series will look would look better with a change of scenery. yes like. He's going if he gets traded to the right place he's gonna come out and put up. Good numbers look really good and looked better than this. One of these teams is going to talk themselves into it. And i think the sixers will get decent value for him even coming off this because the the longer this gets in the rear view the more people will start to look at the player he can be instead of the player he just was against the atlanta hawks. Yeah that's how it always is. I mean you talk yourself into you. Look at the whole body of work. You don't look at the atlanta series. You look at the last two or three years. And if you're philly get away from this for like the next two weeks like just dead away from this roster and Take a deep breath as far as what you wanna do any. Can't simmons either like you know. The bench was bad. Tobias harris million shots doc rivers. Look it has to be said just another playoff meltdown. From doc rivers team. And i don't know. I've never come way from any of these series clippers. Twenty fifteen clippers twenty four. I mean on right clippers. Twenty twenty clippers clippers clippers and said there was all these moves that are really hated like i was really yelling about the coaching. All the way through. Everyone's yelling about the sixers bench while they tried the benchmark that didn't work they tried harris and the benchmark. That didn't work. Yeah you could argue. There shouldn't have played dwight. Just play simmons at center. That hasn't really worked in. The real issue is that they can't stagger simmons and embiid because they don't trust him as scare the offense blah blah. Like but you gotta find something like when a game is slipping away like game. Five slipped away. You gotta find something. And all. I i know. I know the doc rivers team collapsing face. Now it's it's it's a tight. His face gets very tight and he's trying to maintain a stone face but in his eyes. You see you see the a mix of sadness and pantic the is reveal it all. I can see that. I will close my eyes tonight and i will wake up in a cold sweat at three thirty. Because i'll be dreaming in the dream. Doc rivers will just be looking at me with the doc rivers meltdown. Panic face what. I'm yeah we still little. We saw last year in denver. We saw we saw in a denver series when a denver hit that point in the was like five minutes left in that fourth quarter. We we saw the two other teams that we should mention are. Just indiana is ripe for something. I don't really love a lot of contracts right like those ten to twenty million dollar guys in between there and the warriors you know we'll see how the lottery works out for them. They've got a lot of draft capital. They've got wiseman they've got wiggins which people want to do that swap. I mean maybe there's something there held maybe swap draymond green. I don't see them doing that. But who knows maybe we should at least mentioned is there any any potential simmons suitor that we did not mention that i get you know even like a team like memphis who is like you know kind of like there but not quite there like i don't even know how he would fit there. Like winslow anderson crew draft picks in stock. But what does that new for philly. I don't know how he fits. I'm not I think they're all in on. Mirant jackson figure it out from there. Yeah even the lakers zach. I don't even coups mma. Casey p their first round pick that it's not gonna do it either. The has dried up there. You what you could sign. It should the lakers. You could sign intrigue schreuder right and all that other stuff and so i can talk myself into data from philly. Then on the lakers. And i'm like well my my. My spacing already stinks. And i'm adding simmons and simmons and lebron and davis. I mean that's a lot of talent a lot of talent. It's certainly a buffer against lebron ski aging and injuries. Or whatever happens to him as he approaches. You know this late thirties. Stone at the fit is obviously not ideal. But i guess you gotta sniff it out as a talent play. The second round is in full swing in the action increases from game to game this is where the contenders are separated from the pretenders to give you some skin in the game. Draftkings will be offering free to play pools. Every day of the basketball playoffs offering players. A free shot at up to ten thousand dollars in total prizes..

"Don't give me. I don't wanna see atlanta. Ben simmons. i wanna see the. I want to see the good version of ben simmons. And then you're gonna then you're going to try to buy low. That's what you're gonna do because you're gonna you're gonna talk yourself into how he would fit with your roster and then you're gonna then you're going to. You're going to buy low. I mean that's you're gonna offer something that darryl would have hung the phone up a year ago now does it does a peak interest. That's the bigger your bradley. Beal dreams are on name. Lillard dreams are on hold. Yeah so let's go let me go through. Someone's just real quickly. I already did the rebuilding ones right like you just not going get your those rebuilding teams have moved on or they just don't have the stuff that that philly wants the riott. I've seen people pitch me. John wall and eric gordon and some all the rockets pick notes. Not gonna happen. Yeah well maybe you never say never. I just don't really see that one. I've seen denver brought up a few times which i get for this for the following reasons. Michael porter jr. back just acted up and that's a scary thing right. Jamal murray is injured for a year. Let's get another ball handler. In simmons yokich murray. That's a natural federal blah. I just don't. I don't think that's going to be a thing. I don't think i don't sense. Denver has a big appetite to up end its franchise to absorb the player that we just watched in. The playoffs could be wrong. I just don't see it. And so those are some of the ones that i sort of wanted to talk about and just throw out to the side quickly. I'll give you a couple of other ones. I like reading took. These are not going to be popular philly fans. I went through them a little bit less week. I think you could make something with gordon hayward in something else from charlotte the problem is charlotte may say well. He's not a great fit with lamelo ball. So that's one. Can i tell you. I just stay. Never they never seemed to be in on these things. But can i tell you my sneaky esteem just purely putting puzzle pieces together. San antonio is just tailor made for a bunch of stuff for one guy. Throw some things that the wall move like. Why not just say. Here's some here's some veterans who compliment simmons. Here's some draft picks we are. It would require them thinking we've got a bunch of a pretty good young guys. We don't think they're going to add up to a great team even when they all reach twenty three twenty four twenty five years lights already twenty six. I think let's just take shot and could correct me if i'm wrong. I believe they could sign and trade derozen to the sixers. Sixers would still be able to get under the hard captured. I think they would have enough leeway right. Yeah chip england. If there's one guy. Who could fix ben simmons and make them change hands. They've got him. Well here's the here's the question. I always pose an. I ask internally when whenever these big names become available and they've got a lot of money left under contract and this is a perfect example for san antonio if ben simmons right zach was a free agent this offseason. Would you pay four for one. Forty seven four. I don't know i don't think you would. I just know you wouldn't. I mean if you're if you clearly if you have ambitions of playing deep into the postseason perfect roster for him. I think the answer is no. Yeah i mean. That's i mean he's your big. He's your big ticket free agent. That's who is especially if you know the the rose a number of even really doesn't even count against her books. He's there he's there. They're number one. Free agent to add to this roster. I like that one i mean. I don't think the rosena grammy he's a non he doesn't like to shoot threes. He's but at least he shoots jump shots like you know. The problem is if you if you like another one. I made up which. I actually liked this. One kind of is minnesota for de ngelo russell beasley Beazley's gotta come. Because i just don't think the ngelo russell enough now then. I have to send more money out if i'm philadelphia which raises another point. The you probably are going to bring up is they need to turn one of these salary slots whether it's resigning danny green. Are mike scott into lake. Eight million dollar contract just for trade purposes. Just for this reason. I actually like the russell beasley fit around. Embiid the problem in this would be a great segue to utah. Is if you start building this team. That's like all shooting and joel. Consult every problem on defense and we don't care about the defense at the other positions. Utah just built that team and ran into an all small team and the clippers and all of a sudden having all below average defenders around. Go bear became a giant problem. That rudy gobert could not fix rudy. Gobert also not great in that series. We'll talk about it. But i just the more defense you put on embiid the more you make all him and nobody else in the get. You still have thighbone. I guess the the more rickety gets. I liked that one though russell and beasley. I'm simmons and towns towns shooting threes. He'll shoot six fifteen a game. You know it's teaching us. It is humbling building. Rosters isn't it. there's no it's it's hard to kind of split the middle here when you when you do. I like it. I mean you know it makes sense you know. Yeah you mentioned you've got to send some you know some more money to try to even it out a little bit here..

"Low has welcome to the low post podcasts. That on monday morning where the second round is over and it went out with a bang or a whimper or a pass to matisse stibal depending on your perspective it began this raucous weekend with the clippers down twenty-five into third quarter roaring back without kawhi leonard and to eliminate the number one seeded utah jazz. Not a great look for the jazz and it ended with something happening to ben simmons for what feels like the twentieth consecutive playoff game and the atlanta hawks getting their third road win of the series behind red velvet. The ginger mamba kevin herder some late heroics from trae young goodbye philly atlanta milwaukee conference finals and inbetween an epic game seven between the milwaukee bucks in what was left of the brooklyn nets that came down to a toe and it over time and now there are some tough off season questions to face for some of these teams to help us do that. The best in the business at doing that. Mr robert marks. How are you sir. Close act. How're you approved. We don't need the lakers in the playoffs. We don't need big market. We can have phoenix in clippers. And the clippers are big market but milwaukee's of the world to have actually good basketball than it was enjoyable. it was It was quite a weekend and i. Let's let's today we're gonna do off-season outlooks with with you. Because that's i think the first jumping off point where you plenty of time to talk. Conference finals kevin pelton going out to do that. Let's start with philly. I said before the playoffs that anything short of the conference finals was a catastrophe for the sixers. And this is a catastrophe for the sixers. I know that joel. Embiid is playing through a meniscus injury. He looked mostly good for this series. The sixteen turnovers combined in game. Six and seven were ugly. He wore down at a bunch of second half including the offer he took in the second half of game. Four when philly could have put a strangled out to the series did not in atlanta and And i you know. The hawks are good we. They've proven that they've proven that there may be even better than good there. Just a really good team. And they're doing this without the hunter without cam reddish and they deserve credit for that but the sixers the number one seed and the number one seed in the east was the most valuable real estate in all the playoff seeding this year because it had it ended up with this road where you didn't have to face the nets or the bucks until the conference finals philly could not get their despite homecourt advantage despite a two one the despite big leads in every game and we have now arrived. I think at something very close to the point of no return in the ben. Simmons joel embiid pairing because this is three playoffs in a row. Where ben simmons game. It started in two thousand eighteen against boston where he just wasn't as good as he was in the regular season. That ben simmons twenty eight team playoff. Ben simmons is like a juggernaut compared to twenty twenty one. Play ben simmons. Twenty nineteen is when the whole dunker spot thing started to become a part of the story where they are jimmy butler and tobias harris and all of a sudden you notice he's been it's been stalled the point guard if he's not is he just in the way will will. That's weird and then he'd have a game. Where you got transitioned things. Great in all this and this was the deer this is. This is the valley. This is as low as it gets. Tom has show was the first to tweeted out. Three field goal attempts in the fourth quarter in the entire series hero players who had more field goal attempts in the fourth quarter than ben simmons for the philadelphia. Seventy sixers ready. bobby. Yep let's go dwight howard. Three of six in fourth quarters. Double ben simmons field goal attempts matisse stibal two of seven george hill remember george hill existed like even when he was playing. You had to remind yourself till the guy just their short show seven tires maxine eight furqan korkmaz's five of nine. The cork stir triple ben. Simmons field goal attempts. Danny green played one game in the whole series. It had two field goal attempts in the fourth quarter. This was a an absolute disaster unfolding on national television. This is ricky and keel in basketball. And i just don't even know we can sit here and talk about ben simmons traits it just. It just didn't work. It hasn't worked and this is a huge discipline for philly and there's just no way around. Yeah i felt like it was an about experience right. Probably for us at home for him himself like like. Who is this player. Because there was a pattern on the offensive end where pass ahead and then basically he went to the Went to the corner like that like that was like it. Was we got to the point where it was like. Four on five on the offensive end in the The end of the game the wide open probably would have been a dunk symbolize. There's probably it would have been a dunk. It symbolized the series in joel even after the game said like that was probably the turning point because we gave up to entitled split the free throws. And you're right. We could sit here and talk about ben. you know. Armchair quarterback guys got hundred. Forty seven million dollars left.

"Listen i think couple of teams. We've seen bobby memphis team. Which i think is impressed. People all season long To be in the western conference playoff race. And then in the play beating the spurs and going on the road to be the warriors and then go right into utah winning a game one on the road Taking a listen they've been terrific and you can see just the baseline of a really really good team. Moving forward zach loaded a great piece on that grizzly team today on espn dot. Com taylor jenkins jenkins's has shown himself to be one of the best young coaches in the league. Certainly and and i think they're going to be heard from again. You're gonna journey jackson junior back next year with a full summer in an off season and he just played sixty games. I think coming off that meniscus injury from the bubble in so that's gonna be you know they're going to be a fun team to watch. They represented themselves really well in the postseason and then now To me the one series. I think there's anybody who's gonna beat brooklyn in east. I think it's milwaukee milwaukee if. They're the team. Drew holidays giving them such a dynamic. And i think that brooklyn buck series is going to be an absolute Absolute battle. i can't wait for that series. While it's two teams that went out and got two players that they can get them to a championship in in milwaukee with withdrew holiday. And i don't care if what they gave up if he can get you to an nba finals. It was well worth it. He has been well worth it When he's been on on the court and yellow in brooklyn. We've seen Inept at boston series a A monster on the offensive end when the big three in when kyrie is engaged. How good that team is going to be in Ken milwaukee slow. Slow them down. I think we saw a little bit of a sample in those two games in In may in milwaukee from that they can Holiday played as good as you as you can. The the honest The the jaanus How they guard him. Are they going to allow him to take jump shots. Are they going to allow him. You know the goal is not to get him in the paint with basically did at will in the in those those games in and in the middleton factor who's been one of their better players one of their better players has been he. I didn't. Chris is going to be the i think. He's the x. factor. In this. Chris middleton could be the x factor in this Brooke played lopez. Played great in that in the miami series. It'll be interesting if if if they keep brooke down low end just take advantage of his size of a team that does not have great size instead of having kind of on the perimeter here. But we are yeah. I mean we're we're basically we have a final four level type game if we're comparing to college in round two. I mean it's as good as it's as good as we're going to get a bucks team that jon horst their gm in putting this team together felt like we've got to have some more offensive versatility. Beyond johnson. chris middleton. We've got to be able to have some shock creators. and we're okay with giving some things up on the defensive end to do that and that that we they were numbered top rated defensive team in the last couple of years. Flamed out a little bit in the postseason and felt like we've just got to be better off heads. You're going to have to score to be brooklyn you're gonna have to score and you see the role you know bobby. Portis has played coming off the bench and bring forbes has been good for them coming over from san antonio they are going to miss dante. David chen zo certainly He losing him for the season. Let crippling but certainly it's hard to lose a starter This time of year. They're not that deep but Yeah i think. That's a great series a lot on the line for milwaukee a uniting mike budenholzer future in key needs. He needs a deep run in these playoffs. But i also think too. You're going to look at how you're playing bureau milwaukee. If you don't win the series you look at how you competed in in how you changed the way this team plays and with the personnel. Thank you know what we're onto something here And making a dramatic change to it at head. Coach doesn't make sense that we can grow from again brooklyn may just be better in like brooklyn may be better than everybody and and it's not necessarily reflection on on the opponent and their failures of shortcomings. But certainly there's a lot on the line in series. I think it's going to be Yeah i think this one's going to be a lot of fun and obviously philly. The guy get embiid healthy that meniscus injury is basically gonna be pain threshold for him. There's no indication that this is something that they would shut him down with at least not now or not based on it seems the information they have now with it and You know they you know they obviously get through the washington series and now a really dangerous atlanta team. That like i think we all underestimated a little bit going into the playoffs. I think now that you're finally seeing these hawks altogether a how much talent they have trash like. When you look at the job he's done building that roster you know across the three areas you get better in right.

Trade deadline bobby. How are you. I'm good zach. How are you yeah. We We had nothing besides fianna cap'n galley in money. Money saving deal for the clips would actually help them get guess The rondo deal game a little bit of money and then we had the two. Am the lawn. Reiko cory joseph swapped and i slept right through that were stuck right through the delong. Something was telling me. Wake up. Wake up and i woke up and i saw and i was like i said one of these videos. I've been doing. It wasn't like the bias. Harris remember tobias harris straight from a couple years ago where it happened like in the middle of the night and i woke up at like six. And i'm like oh my god. What just happened here. Like i missed it I woke up. I talked about it a little bit. And then i had a hard time back asleep. Well the headliner didn't get traded. And that's kyle lowry but let's start with the orlando magic. Because i can no longer make fun to them by calling them the orlando inertia because they traded everyone and they are going to be so bad when they next play which could be tonight. I don't even know else playing tonight that they are obviously positioning themselves. To go full rebuild. Bow and get a shot at kate cunningham. Whoever's next seat next year skate cunningham their biggest deal let's start with butchnevich to chicago for twenty twenty one. I at twenty twenty three. I and wendell carter junior and otto porter. What were your thoughts on that. Because i didn't think i was gonna get traded. And i thought if he did the price would be even higher than this and i was skeptical that anyone would offer them that kind of pressure i did. I didn't think a deal what happened. What do you think about this from either either perspective. I don't care which one to start with. Yeah i mean. I think for I thought it was going to be three ones. If you're going to get in the game for a reverse first rounder. Three first rounders. I thought that's what it was. And i guess if you're landau i guess you're quite that the wendel carter junior the pickup equates to a first round although he's got two years you know he's going into an extension year so it's not like you get clean slate with him.

"To the low post podcast on a friday morning where we are six days away from the trade deadline but some trades of already happened. People are acting early. Miami acquired trevor ariza and the bucks made a very interesting move to acquire. Pj tucker but there's much left to do even on boring trade deadline's are never actually boring. Lots of stuff happens to help. Us preview are insider are cap expert former longtime nets executive. The one and only bobby marks how are you. I'm good zach. How're you. And i already had my usually about a week out from the trade. I start having nightmares in the middle of the night. And i did my first nightmare last night. That woke me up about four o'clock that A fictitional trade of paul george in kyle lowry to the nets for curry irving and i woke up thinking like how in the heck is at work cap wise but the person in my dream that i talked to said. Hey don't worry about it. Works and i was like check my phone right off. The bat at four thirty in that did not happen. That is that is really sad. I had a dream last night. That four of my friends in their families were quarantining at a former. I hop that still had all the i hop like syrup and technology to be a functioning and they were having lots of pancakes in great meals and i wanted to go visit them. This is what. I was dreaming about six days before the train then. I woke up very hungry. Bunny dream will probably more likely to happen than cholera. Paul george and brooklyn possibly. What did it before we start. What did you think of the bucks acquiring j. tucker in a deal of of minor draft assets. I would say yeah. I mean it was creative. I thought that you know the milwaukee because it hard cap and based on the picks going in that drew holiday trade really had limited options to go out and do it but they go under the milwaukee goes under the Luxury tax gives them flexibility on a hard cap houston from their front office with the draft. Picks i don't think it would have been able to do it if They didn't have that two thousand twenty second from the hardened trade. That was the box. Essentially that they got from jarrett for From cleveland jared allen. But i had never really seen a team basically swapping a first for a second and then tr trade back that two thousand twenty second and you move back a year in the draft so it was creative from from both sides. And you'll see what brand. Pj tucker we get in milwaukee because he has not been. He hasn't been great this year at all and is it just the level of interest of a houston team that has taken on major water. And do we get to see the pj tucker from the previous years. But it gives milwaukee a lot of different options as far as lineups that they can. They can roll out there with him.

"I think one of the themes of it's an obvious one. But between what they got a Cappella and the whole bunch of nothing. That Detroit got Andre Drummond. I think we've reached a point where the League league is valuing centers that's solely that I don I'm just did I make sense so lonely. I don't know without the they don't know. One is placing a lot of value on centers. And if the rockets looked Capella will look. We don't think our current team is at its best with Capelle on the floor. Mike is not gonNA play him. Let's turn them into someone who's GonNa play for for us that makes conceptual sense to me. There just wasn't I mean Boston. Look how easily these teams got. Andre Drummond Cleveland got under Donald for literally. Bring Jon Hinson Brandon Knight in the a second round pick nuts and nothing. Well I mean I mean in the second round pick is I think it's the warriors second in two thousand twenty two or twenty three and that's going to be probably a pretty decent so Yeah Yeah I think that's true But yeah drums a fascinating case because like what was the last time I'm a guy and all this year all star but on an expiring contract got US second round in Cap Filler. Detroit's GonNa get hammered for this. Yeah hammered but you know what didn't want on their team. Well that's the thing like. They got nervous that we started to see this market shrinking right. The market of Memphis didn't can have cap cap. Space went out the window. Atlanta doesn't need a center New York's got new owners management. There I mean we don't know if Andre Drummond drumming is Leeann Rose Guy You know that. I don't think that's going to be your first big signing go in there and like give him four years one hundred fifty million dollars in New York. The Knicks fans just just vomited. As you're saying that they just vomited So if you're Detroit you know what happens if he if he ops in then and you've got a you got him for the year. Maybe trying to flip him in another deal. So you kind of cut your Bait you get a second round pick You've got thirty five thirty six million million dollars in In Room to go out and get a starting point. Guard is Fred Vanfleet Dwayne Casey favor. And then you kind of patch up your rescue roster stor or you just wait and just kind of I mean I think the reality is that like Detroit is like like full rebuild. This and the canard rumors that they were willing to trade canard for a good draft. Pick not a crappy traffic. That's why they didn't get the deal done. They're probably haggling with Phoenix over as well as reported over how heavily protected or lightly that pick is going to be but but it does signal like. If you don't think Luke Kennard is a cinch to be part of your next Detroit Pistons CNN. He's what twenty two twenty three. Yeah his third year in the League and you think whoever you get you pick with this two thousand twenty draft pick like your old ways away

Sources: Lakers reach deal for Pelicans' Davis

"Yesterday on sports air. Here's Adrian wards now ski breaking down. The trade of Anthony Davis to the Lakers. This is a monster. Paul for the New Orleans pelicans to get to starters. Lonzo ball. Brandon Ingram an upstanding young player. Josh heart three, first round picks including the number four overall pick and Thursdays draft which allows the world not only draft Zion Williamson, at one, but number four, get another potential. Very good young player. But for the Lakers. They paid a steep price to get the player they had to get. They were able to keep Kyle Kuzma they had to get Anthony Davis. They weren't at the top of any big free agents lips. But it certainly changes the dynamic of that lake organization. What's next for the Lakers Agent Orange now on sportscenter who could they target in free agency. They'll get out into free agency this later this month, June, thirtieth and see if they can get involved with one of the big players on the market. Go Kemba Walker from Charlotte. They could certainly plug him in point guard if he doesn't resign with the Hornets he's a player that will be available teams like Dallas, New York have had interest in him. And you know there's a lot of teams in the marketplace looking for point guards this summer. You know, Jimmy Butler is another player if they are unable to come to terms on a new deal in Philadelphia. I think there would be some mutual interest soon as, as rewards announcing on sportscenter the Lakers. They get Anthony Davis a couple of weeks ago. It looked like they were in complete disarray with magic. Johnson. Rob Pelinka and everything going on there. Everything has now corrected itself with one major trade. The Lakers always find a way and tweeting just now for now expectation is Anthony Davis. Trade will be completed on July sixth league. Sources tell Bobby marks me assuming Davis. Declines to void four million dollar trade bonus this leaves the Lakers with twenty three point seven million in space. There is a chance that could be amended to July thirtieth, but it's still the sixth for now. Okay. So if it's six then the Lakers won't have the money to go out and get a MAC, Scott. They only have twenty three point seven. Look, if I'm over the key, here is that if they were able to wait for this deal to the thirtieth, July, thirtieth, then the Lakers would have that cap space. Go out and get Kemba Walker. Jimmy Butler someone else who wants max money. Yeah. Now, the question to me, and I love conspiracy theories, and I believe in them, and I think that you could get LeBron like what's stopping LeBron from going to the guys and? Saying, hey, Jimmy Butler signed a two year. I know you love Hollywood, your friends with the wall, burger guy with Donnie will Mark Mark, Mark Wahlberg, right? Yeah. What's stopping me from Saint sign a two year deal take twenty million a year or twenty million twenty million, whatever it is? And here's a part in Space Jam to for a couple of million dollars as well to, you know, just help to make it up somewhere else. Give some points on the movie too. You know, like let's get him some return on the DVD sales. Maybe to my point is what's stopping LeBron from doing this. There's nothing stopping LeBron from doing this behind the scenes. Okay. So why are you? You're acting like LeBron's our doing this. We know Brian Windhorst told the world on PTI back in mid-may that LeBron was having conversations with Kalat quite learn. Jimmy Butler even though quieter Jimmy Butler. We're still in the playoffs playing Jimmy Butler is still playing the first rider with Chris Paul. And Russell Westbrook yesterday. Yeah. I mean, and that's what he does LeBron does, and here's the key here, blocking dollar here on ESPN one thousand and ESPN app. This is why people love the NBA you have a chance every off season to remake your team. And to go for industrial bulls and the key here is this, you have right now, if you count the Lakers, what could possibly happen, this summer with the clippers the nets the Knicks the heat, the rockets, the seventy Sixers the Mavericks, they have cap space. And an owner who who wants to win and the Celtics that right there. That's nine teams in seven cities, all that will have interests this summer all with interest as what they can do to reshape their organization going forward trying to win a championship nine teams seven cities. That's what makes the NBA great is that movement is not solidified in the fact that you're in one spot, and you have to be there for your career, the NFL is built on the fact that you get a star quarterback and that quarterback will be your franchise until you don't want that star quarterback there. Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers will be together until Aaron Rodgers or the Green Bay Packers. Mostly the Packers don't want him to be there. Why? Because they can afford to pay him and quarterbacks. Don't move about in the NFL like star players in the NBA Ken, they can dictate policy. They can force it away somewhere. I get it some people erupts them the wrong way. But to others. It means your organs. Station each and every off season has an opportunity to take

Well, I think it's a little bit of learning of for a new owner until for teetering. And I think he's on this team for about two years here that you can't run a rock at the basketball team like you do your own business, and to structure, a coach's contract extension likely. It's a scene with Mike, the Antoni. I, I had never seen that before basically performance bonuses in its you start low and then you kind of build your way out there. So, I think I think probably the last couple of weeks was, you know, doubt Daryl more probably educating him on as far as the business of basketball, and how you probably can't go out, you know with your head coach and how to structure with your system coaches here. So it's like something that's going to get resolved here. I think it's going to be interesting. What they do with their system coaches because they let go of, you know, just as Delic and ROY Rogers, and, and what the length of an extension will be here. It's, it's hard for an assistant coach to come on board when he's basically on a on a two Yukio. Yes. They will have somebody to get, you know, at the top of the line assistant coaches. I think that's a little bit of a challenge there.

Knicks Snap 18-Game Home Losing Streak with Win over Spurs to Avoid NBA History

"Guys. We have a guest here obviously on the shell Pennzoil performance line. And it is oh guy. Our guy Bagley get your bag. Ian, how're you doing? In. My three favorites out there tonight. I'm very excited. Yes. ESPN New York. Knicks reporter also does the nets and basically holds the upper east coast down in did you know that the Knicks made the Oscars they pretty much won an Oscar did you notice this? Yeah. We got wind of it on social media after the game. And we asked a couple of players about if they hadn't seen a year for too excited to just see the clip Samuel Jackson, and Spike Lee. Not every not every year that the Knicks could have mentioned on the Oscars deserves rightfully so. Because the Knicks would at home first time that happened since December one twenty eight and I'm talking about last year folks, twenty we're everywhere. Number one two thousand eighteen they won. They beat the Spurs one thirty one eighteen and I even saw the icing on the cake who threw off the backboard pass for the dunk like it was just wild. How important Dennis Smith? Well, of course, it makes sense. Usually he's on the other end of the dunk rape. How does this when in Madison Square Garden me? What was the field? Was it like a sign of relief for coach physio it felt like a weight off everybody's shoulders, you know, coach FitzGerald would tell us that they don't think about it. They don't talk about it. But then the players afterward joking around the locker room, it just felt like a much later lock home. Now, they knew about they were one loss away from Batasuna longest losing streak ninety history set in ninety three ninety four by the Dallas Mavericks. They know that they have the longest losing streak in franchise history. This so they're aware of those numbers. They don't want to be a part of that history. Tonight, especially the team like the city until you're Spurs. It's not easy, especially for this. And we've got a twenty two games left would throw out the record. We know where we know where we are twelve hundred forty eight what should be the goals over the next six weeks here with this team wanna see consistency. I think so Kevin Knox. You'd wanna see what Frank ntilikina as you're still trying to answer that question. You know, one one and a half almost two seasons. Enter France career, he should get healthy at some points to from this point. I think it was the next to kiss him significant minutes trying to answer that question to try to see if he can be elite guard. What did he do off the ball and where he used offensively so between seven and Saint not some consistency. From those guys. I think the next like what they've seen recently from young player in literal Robinson who who's really played well, especially since the Andre Jordan has come over from Dallas Jordan has done a good job mentoring. Mitch robinson. So I think it's it's the young players on your team and being able to project them forward who is a keeper who can you pencil in for next year? And who do you think won't be around piggybacking off your point there? What's the the Knicks recruiting pitch this summer? You know, who they Bill that around is it around, you know, playing with somebody like Dennis Smith. Knox. Or like what how does that play out? Jordan because you have the two max slots. Pitches almost hey, come come here and tell us who you wanna play with right twenty nine hundred she class, we get that you wanna play with and Kevin Durant. Also simple. You want to change the narrative around. Golden State to win those titles. You come here. And you have success in New York you wanna title in New York. I mean, that's a forever thing doesn't staffers outside of Madison Square Garden and no one. We'll talk about how joined that Golden State to win your earlier title simple message. Anybody else? It's tell us who you wanna play with. We'll try to bring that guy in. That's the voice of in Begley are ESPN next report. And that's reporter upper east coast. Reporter you're listening to insiders. I'm Bobby marks Jordan Schultz ESPN radio ESPN app and Sirius XM channel eighty now. Talking about obviously, the potential free agency this summer. Those are all big question marks largely because of the trade deadline, sending Kristaps Porzingis opening up two slots, but tell me how worried were Knicks fans watching Duke UNC this past week in. Knick fans are still watching the Knicks games. I give them a lot of credit assume most expensive watching every night. So. A big sigh of relief. I think I'm this fanbase when you found out that that sign injury wasn't that serious that he's going to be okay. Because this record twelve weeks at this point. And they're just looking ahead towards the trash and like every other bottom. Feeding MBA franchise. They're looking at nine what you've seen how he can impact their roster. How much he can change the fourteen organization. So, you know, certainly everybody around here was relieved when they found that he was okay. The interesting thing so Zion and wherever the Knicks end up in the draft in the top three. They hope is could that pick then help them creed. With the woman's Francis us, I think that's something. That's that's certainly on the fan bases minded. I'm sure the front office is thinking about different permutations packages. They could put together including that twenty nine team first round pick to try to entice New Orleans Detroit. And before we let you go. What do you think Zion playing in Madison Square Garden would look like do you think it would be just the new coming up LeBron or even even bigger based on his highlights in his dunking ability. I remember the Jeremy Lin Ron and how much energy was in the building night in and night out. How much of the event every home game was your masters. I think it would be just like that. But even more so sign Williamson was here. Because you know, he getting the franchise all three player people talk about him as a prospect the same way, they talks about Davis to bring that kind of talent into this building would give this reasons for optimism something they haven't had in a long time around here in. I look forward to our shared slice of pizza. I know we've been pushing off that day for a long time. He's been the best pizza apparently in New York. But before we let you go last, but not least we have awards given out for the MBA insiders and honors of aren't Oscars. Have you been watching the Oscars tonight? Because I've been at the. Is your feed though, you saw here. A little bit here and there, okay? This has been a Mahershala Ali love fest on the show, but we actually have awards given out today on MBA insiders throughout the course of the night. I want to get your vote for the last category that we're trying to push best leading man. Are you ready for this vote pleased? The nominees are Janta Takubo of the box. PG thirteen Paul George of the thunder James harden of the rockets and Kawhi Leonard of the raptors who is your best leading man right now. I would go right now with John giving Milwaukee's records they're standing in the conference in the role that he plays on that team. I think he's most deserving of that honor at the moment all of Georgia's a close second. Given what he's done for the thunder

Minnesota Timberwolves teammates caught off guard by Jimmy Butler trade demand

"Coa Leonard is you know, he's an MVP level player in the NBA. Jimmy Butler is an outstanding player, but he's. Level below that, and he's older. And I think the question too is this isn't breaking up in Minnesota because he doesn't like Tom tiptoe. He's always had a good relationship with Tibbett. Oh, now it's strained as this process plays out and he doesn't get the trade and you'll see become probably more at odds. I think that's starting to happen. But the fact is he credits Tom thibodeau a great deal with his development of player. Last pick of the first round out of Marquette, who went to Portsmouth and the pre-draft process was fighting to just be a first round pick and becomes an all star max player in Chicago, and the fact that if you're another team and you're saying he's walking away from Tibbs, he's walking away from this team. Could he do that to us after seven months? And I think that factors into your thinking too, about what you give up for him? One hundred percent, right? I mean, he that extension that. Minnesota offered him would be available six months after your quired him, and he's not going to accept, you know, four years, one hundred million dollars. He is certainly renegotiate renegotiate his contract. But as Minnesota learned this summer, when you're over the cap, you can't go about doing it and it would take gutting, you're going your roster to do it. And you know what I've learned is that when you go out and make these type of trades, you're always chasing that trade and you're trying to acquire other pieces to make that player happy. And you're really, you're really hurting your roster to do. So. I mean, I mean the the Darren Williams trade back in two thousand eleven in the year later to follow up with Jerry Wallis because you're trying to convince Williams to stay or your trading multiple draft picks because you're trying to convince that player to stay in free agency. And I think that's where. That's where the situation in Toronto with Colli that Masais got a good comfort level with that roster there with Kyle Lowry surge Bach, and some of the younger players Dhillon. Right. And then Lee Valance Eunice that he doesn't have to go out there and go out and get it Jimmy Butler PO. Possibly that he says, I can go to, you know, I can go to battle with these guys that when fifty nine games with Colli Leonard. And that's a lot different than maybe the team like Brooklyn who acquires Butler and then says, what other pieces can I go out and get to try to piece his player to make us competitive? And I think that's really where teams really get themselves in

"Here's what we're talking about. Todd Frazier, who will be at third for the Mets tonight in a game that starts in about an hour, was it? I was at this game on Monday night at Dodger Stadium. Mayday diving catch going into the stands along the third base line in England. He tumbled into the stands and he came out with holding the ball a pie and say it. I caught it in the called the batter out. It turns out Frazier went into the stands drop. The actual play didn't catch it. Saw a youth baseball on the ground. Picked it up, showed it to the empire, the empire called the out. Then he threw the youth baseball back in the staff like he was a good guy to give away as souvenirs. Amazing. I mean, just played it off
