"Off in practice, we're kind of like offset from where they kick, so we're directly behind one field, they're kicking on the field to Jason from. It's just a really tough angle and we're like, up a hill will be up and down, I believe. Actually, I don't know if it's going to be different this year cuz of covid-19 May from 98 five, The Sports Hub, wrote a good piece, this afternoon that the Celtics may just want to stand Pat. And I know that that may nauseate a lot of Celtics fans and probably rightfully. So but no especially now they especially now that they lost out on lawns. Oh, you have, you know, are you going to sign Patty Mills for big money to our multi-year deal? You're going to sign, you know, some of these other names. Jeff Green, right? Whatever. And it's like you're just going to blow all your money signing. These guys who don't put you over the top, you're just that's just kind of walk again. It's just Gordon Hayward again off or overpaying guys cuz their names and you're not looking at the big picture if they can just stand. Pat signs of one-year deals, Isaiah Thomas has been up there, which has been out there, which would be awesome. I think would be perfect signed to a one-year deal. You put juice on this season. You have no long-term commitment Tatum Brown. And Horford are the only three guys. They assigned be Beyond this here and then I think there's some guys with rookie options, but those are the only three guys they have money Committed Pig. Beyond this year, they're going to have a Max lot in the summer of 2022. That's a great free agency summer. Bradley Beal. Perhaps, Kawhi Leonard and I know that you know this gives life span slash back. So we've waited for the free agents before, it's not a great plan, it's a better plan than Patty Mills. It's a better plan than going for mediocrity. Again, I I think anything short, be all you got to do everything in your power tool and Beale, anything short of that. Even if it means kind of kicking the can down the road, I hate saying that. Cuz I've been saying for years too selfish could should get more aggressive. This isn't the year to be aggressive or free agency class sucks. Don't commit yourself long-term to anybody just try as much as you can to get Bradley Beal especially now that alonso's off the table. I like Lonzo your reason why I like Lonzo off cuz he's a great pastor and he's a good Defender, right? And he's not a type of guy like Marcus Smart and I think it was Chris Mannix who has had the report earlier today, but some people Brad Stevens among them. I've definitely soured on Marcus, Smart jacking up. 20 shots of game, right? That's not the Celtics know that that's not sustainable for them. If they're going to be where they want to go Marcus Martin, he's the kind of buying to a row and I've always loved the Marcus Marr was best for the Celtics even though they played different positions and sort of like a Draymond Green type of role right where where your mate you're facilitating, your rebounding you're playing defense. All these types of things down, Alonso fit that mold a little bit more. He's great, transition player, great passer. I also watched him at UCLA when I lived out in L A. So I'm a little bit a little bit biased. When it comes to life, Lonzo ball, cuz I did see him live at college, but I, I thought that would have been a good one, but he's going to Chicago. Go ahead and jump over and burned down here now. So go ahead and jump over to the Celtics seal and this handle, and they're going to have a free agency special with all the free agent news and how it pertains to the Celtics and everything like that..

"Because if russ gets traded in the next three days or so then you're looking at right. Things are changing. Maybe it's time to make that kind of move but again you're not getting bradley beal unless he specifically demands To be traded to the celtics because washington will hang up the phone unless jaylen brown is package and the celtics will hang up the phone if jaylen brown easing package. We'll see bill has a thirty four point five million dollar contract for this upcoming season which is probably number. The celtics could get to follow. It would mean losing smartened orford and perhaps you names to faces we all love and then beal hands for the twenty two twenty three season at thirty seven point three million dollars player option so as soon as next offseason he just choose to join the celtics outright or any other team or things to get a little more complicated does sound like we're in agreement. That beal to boston is not happening anytime soon. And if it were to cost jalen brown shouldn't happen at all. Anyone want to refute that. So now i do want to push back a little bit. There have been some people pointing out that it will be incredibly hard to build a team around that trio if they do sign sign him in free agency. That is true. But i i also think that you know either way. Adding adding third star is going to end the going to need to barring big leaps. We're going to see. Hopefully this season it's going to require gunning a lot of their roster one way or another you have to get rid of some contracts and expands or trade some contracts to bring back value. The question is is it the right move to make and i think we do all agree that this doesn't quite seem to be dealing. Jim brown the new. It doesn't seem to be the correct move to be making. I'm usually a little more optimistic. That talent will figure it out That i think a lot of people. I tend to think that if you have three star players If they stay healthy they will almost always bear some pretty good results if you think about the last time the celtics three elite wing players right gordon hayward was healthy. Approximately half a season. They looked really really good. So i think they'll find a way if they do ultimately paired bill with jalen and jason but just enough. I think you're also right. It will come at the expense of a lot of other areas in the roster. And maybe that's just how you build a team in the modern nba. Is you look for value at the bottom where you can find it and then just take your shot with star. Talent bird in hand is worth two in bush so to speak. But i do think it's a little messy right now to do that this off season. It's a much cleaner natural organic thing. I think if you wait until next offseason signed the contracts for this season that you need to position yourself to have.

"Win a championship with the Phoenix Suns. I will go offsides outside. The Lakers you just mentioned, so let's talk about them. They filled their void last week, a point guard after their trade for Russell Westbrook. Now Wurzburg has been on the move of late as this is now his fourth team in the last four years. Russian superstars have not really gotten along. Well as remember Kevin Durant left, okay, see, in part to get away from Russ Paul George played two years with the thunder before asking for trade to go to the Clippers. James Harden and Westbrook never dived, and now the Wizards made the trade to get or send Westbrook to the Lakers, in part to build a team more around. Bradley Beal swan sides are offsides. Jack Russell Westbrook Will Butte, the Lakers for at least two years. So here's my question. On this contract right now that he's currently on. He's under contract this year. His base salaries little over 44 million. The next year. He has a player option. That's for 47 million. You would think he probably ops out right? Is this going to even be more than a one year marriage is my question. Because I don't You know the salaries going to go up and all that the salary cap. And I guess you can make it work.

"And i'm looking at boston so i i hear you about boston. I'd hate to give jaylen brown. He's a very good player. Made the all star team last year. But i would go ahead and make that move to team up dame dollar and jason. Tatum and i think that would be a very good team in the east bradley beal. Let's talk about him. I don't know what he's waiting for. I get the loyalty. And that's nice. But kevin garnett was loyal to minnesota. Didn't want to be traded to boston. Finally relented went to boston and they was like man. I wish i had done this earlier in my career. Playoff championships is special and bradley beal. So what if the average is thirty two year in washington and finished in the play in or give bounced in the first round or whatever it is bradley beal in my opinion should be saying. Get me to philadelphia or golden state. I'm i'm getting a lot of people to philadelphia. But i'm just saying these guys need to start looking at what's going to be best for my legacy. What's going to be more enjoyable as a great player to play deep into the playoffs or the struggle to make the playoffs. So you at a team like philly. They can give up ben simmons. I think it'd be great to build around. If you put shooters around him and don't have a dominant low post presence joy libby golden state could give you some young guys so i think that bill. A lillard should look to do that..

"Sports for the state's big 12 schools. That will be later on this afternoon. Reps from TCU Texas Tech Baylor. Are going to speak during the hearing. I'm not sure if Texas will be speaking. But I'm told they will. We'll wait and see. But you know now it's a matter of survival there for those teams because I'm told the Pac 12 not interested in TCU, Texas Tech or Baylor to join them. Do you want to give a shout out to, uh, some of our nearly 400 affiliates? Detroit W C A R. That's a M. 10, 90, Burlington, Vermont, 11.3 and Indianapolis, Fox Sports 12 60. I am speaking of speaking of Fox sports. First things first on Fox Sports every morning Monday through Friday, and one of the great co host there, Nick, right, joining us on the program. Nick. Thanks for joining us here. I was watching this morning. You did have some thoughts on cool. I Leonard and the Clippers and how this all plays out. What would you do with with this situation if you were running the Clippers Well, if I were running the Clippers, I I asked myself. Why am I running the Clippers? Like Why is that my lot in life? But then once I get over that I'd recognize that qualifies got us in a rough spot. And that is three options right. You could have opted in and then signed a four year extension. That's the most guaranteed money available to him. He didn't do that. He got opt out and then sign of four year contract. But that would be illogical. You would have just done the first option, so it looks like he's going to opt out. If he's going to stay, he's going to sign a one plus one. So heels, you know, get paid 40 million this year to probably not play and then be a free agent again next year. And, uh, Don't know Dan people, the the argument that as well then he can sign a five year after this coming year $235 million deal. Don't know that I'm interested in signing choir Leonard for his age 32 through 36 season when his body is broken down more than it should have already also You know, I I was one of the few people two years ago. Told you the Clippers wouldn't make it and this year told you the Nets wouldn't make it. I don't know if the Nets are going to be much better next year. Next year. All the Nets guys are free agents. If if let's say quite signs. The one plus one Dan. And he's a free agent, and he's like okay, now I'll take my four or five year Max and James Harden is also a free agent. It's like this ain't as fun as I thought it would be. I'm from l A. I'd like to go back. If you're the Clippers, Can you make an argument? You'd rather have Paul George with James Harden and Paul George with Hawaii. I think you could. He's a free agent Kyrie. Katie, you're free agents Jimmy Butler's free agent Bradley Beal's a free agent. Next year's free agency. Very wide open. If I'm the Clippers I mean, I find out he's having surgery because Skip Bayless reports it. That's not great. That's not how you want to find out the news, so I don't know The whole thing's frustrating upon the Clippers. Yes, I don't think given that injury that he's going to play and given that Couey's timeframe for coming back from an injury, he's going to be far more cautious than somebody else might be, But this might be a situation. Do you sign him like the Nets signed Kevin Durant? He's coming off the Achilles and they still signed him, knowing that he wasn't going to play that first year. Yeah, but Katie didn't sign a one plus one like I don't. I think they would have signed him, too, if he picked up the option, a four year extension. But that's not what he opted for. I think if I think they would sign him right now to a four year deal, but that would be totally illogical from his perspective. If you wanted that he would have picked up the option and then got for additional years, so essentially a five year deal. So I I don't think that is available to them. I think he's going to say I'm going to sign a one plus one once again be able to hold your feet to the fire. And this year I'm probably not going to play like with the Nets have signed KD To a one plus one coming off the Achilles. I don't think so. They signed it, saying he signed a three plus one, which is very different. It just feels like the Clippers are going to regret this one way or another in two years. It's either Kawai as M V. P like or Hawaii is injured again. Let me ask you let me decide to interrupt, but just For the next two years. If you could, and they can't make this trade, But just, uh, you know, humor me here because both these guys opted out of their deal for the next two years would rather have Chris Paul Er Kwai Leonard, if you're the Clippers, the same exact roster. Chris Paul. Yeah, me, too, Because a He's gonna play this first year and B. I actually think it fits. It's like, Oh, Paul. George can be our primary scorer. Do what he did in the bubble like And that is a wild thing to say. But I think that's where we're at. What about with the Lakers? Are you okay with Russell Westbrook? Okay? So I'm okay with it. And listen, I I guess what? I don't know if you don't listen, I was out of town last week. Uh, writing. You know, I wasn't on TV, but I don't know if you've heard Russell Westbrook struggles from three point range. It's an undercovered story. Um, but I also think that this this trade was really covered poorly by the media. So alright, mantras. Harrell was part of it. He was.

"When the olympics start will be the most talented team in tokyo. Hands down no question. Most talented team in tokyo with the roster that they have but this is like a five alarm fire right now howard. This loss to nigeria. I don't care if they win the rest of these pre olympic games which will take place through next sunday. This has to make you nervous if you're a fan of the team because not only is it this. The loss to nigeria. But you go back two years ago at the world championships where you had a us team. That was good. Didn't have probably better team now than they were back in two thousand nineteen but all nba players. They finished seventh. They've been seventh at the world championships. You have the seventh-place finish the loss of nigeria. How concerned are you howard beck about. Usa basketball. It's just an exhibition game. Chris oh no no. It's not just an exhibition game. Stop this team was thrown together over the last however many weeks they had what like three practices. I think i'll ever. Us team is thrown together. What are you talking about. There's no team. There's no no mid season practices for usa basketball. No but the nigerian team has been practicing. What i'm saying is some of the play in the nba though wants win the nba nba. A few of them play in the nba but that team has had time together more so than the team. Sorry brown coaching. that team. That i missed was that a facsimile of mike brown on the bench all season long. What what are we talking about. The warriors have been out for like two months kris k. Okay so two months. that's what matters. That's that's the number three three practices. Also they're still missing. I believe at least three guys because they're playing in the finals right now. Booker middleton chris paul get it. Yes not chris. Ball's not playing a holiday with the the what holland is your holiday. Those those guys will matter especially given that middleton and holiday are to the better perimeter defenders that that team. Usa has and if you look at the rest of team usa's roster. I don't see a ton of great defenders. There there are a few. I think those three guys by the way are going to be exhausted by the time they get to. They may well be. They may will be so. We're going to judge them. Judging when their whole judge when the games matter to strange to me like we don't judge nba teams based on the preseason but we judge team usa based on these exhibition games. That they do going into international competition. I feel like it's thirty. One point favorites. Why why is there betting line on a freaking exhibition better training but a little league baseball. Now country degenerates damn right. I didn't mean chris i'm with. Let's go monday. Nigeria money line. I just. I can't get too excited about this. If they lose the rest of the exhibitions does that mean something. Yeah that might be alarming if they're if they're still struggling to find some cohesion. That could be alarming. But i mean the talent is obviously their talent alone doesn't win on the international stage in style of game is different team ball matters. Shooting matters like yeah. There's a bunch of budget stuff that comes into play. But i i find the panic over this loss or at least the outcry to be a little bit much. So you don't take into account the seventh-place finish in two thousand nineteen. I mean that to me. It's the it's not just as game. The totality of it right. Like and i don't know howard like so in the early two thousands the world kind of caught up to the us ninety to ninety six thousand us. Gold maps then comes the two thousand two world championships in indianapolis and that's seven. The place finish was one of the worst worst outcomes in at least recent usa history. They got it together after that. They hired jerry colangelo. They bringing mike chef ski. They get their act together. Two thousand six two thousand eight then. They run off. Three consecutive years are three consecutive cycles of gold. Medals is argon. Made that like the world's caught up again that somewhere along the way and the last four or five years. The rest of the world has once again caught up usa basketball. I'm trying to understand this. I mean that's close games in those olympics cycles. No question about it. But i can't imagine the oh eight. Twelve or sixteen team losing nigeria. I can't exhibition or otherwise. I can't see it happening. No team and the and the one that followed it were built around like lebron koby. Carmelo enjoying wait. I mean that that groups at another level like as good as this group is that we're seeing right now as talented as they are after k. D. tatum's really good damian. Lillard is great. I mean come arbit- tatum. Bill lillard auto bio levin. Draymond dream ends up there in years but one has won some things. Jeremy grant jeremy grant zach living out of like. These are guys who have done anything in the nba yet. But they're all stars most they're they're also but are they to level of lebron kobe now but do you think is that what you're saying then is that what you're saying to be at the level you need to have like i'm saying the crop to win. I'm saying that if we're going to start comparing the twenty twenty one team to the twenty eight a two thousand eight two thousand twelve teams there is. There is not an equivalent right now. Lebron kobe laurent cobaine weight. And plus what we what. We called olympic. Mellow like carmelo. Didn't have the success in the nba. That some of his teammates did but carmelo in terms of talent level and certainly has resume like that group was at a whole other level. That group is a different level than jason. Tatum bam outta bios. Zach levine. Okay so not saying that you necessarily should have to have that level of time firepower to win an exhibition game against nigeria. Or anybody else. But i am saying comparing usa to itself different iterations of team usa. This one is not that one. This is not as dominant group as the ones we saw in eight and two thousand twelve. It just isn't what do you do like. What's the solution here. Like i mean i jerry. Colangelo deserves an enormous amount of credit for rebuilding that program when it was at. Its nadir mitra chefs. He comes in enormous amount of credit for what they did. But as we sit here in twenty twenty one like it's almost to me howard like the usa basketball rebuilding. The program became cool. Like lebron wanted to do it. Chris paul like dwayne wade. These guys wanted to do it and then they did it. And i think playing for usa basketball didn't become quite as cool as it was fifteen years ago. Like is that what has to happen like does not need to have like a fifth place finish in tokyo for all of a sudden the next generation of a-list stars wherever that may be in two thousand twenty four to come back into the mix and is that the only way this team can win. I mean i think we need to pay attention to the overall context like obviously one. These olympics were supposed to happen a year ago. They're delayed a year because of covid got durant out of it though like that right. It's questionable whether these the olympic should be happening at all still but along the way because of these back to back brutal seasons and everything else like team. Usa doesn't have james harden right now. Doesn't have anthony davis because of the injury doesn't have steph curry doesn't have kyrie irving doesn't have lebron kawai again. If your argument is that the second or third tier it sounds like sounds like insulting. Somehow but if you're saying that the next wave believe after those guys should still be good enough to dominate on the world stage. Maybe but if the point is that the team as best are they still. Are they still able to win. Gold fairly easily. Your probably but a bunch of them aren't on this team right now because of injuries and just the stress of the last year or two so this this is not necessarily representative of the best of the best right now. It just isn't and yes. They should still be good enough to win. Yes the world has caught up to some extent. No the the group that at nigeria's put it put out there last week. Does not leap off the page improbably. Us should've still want it. But again i exhibition game after like three practices. Let's see what happens with the rest of this. This schedule out brought mellow back. I mean he's not what he was four years ago. Eight years ago twelve years ago but the guy knows how to play international basketball. He might have sat. maybe. I guess. I didn't really. I assume that he just want to keep. He didn't kind of like four formerly re retire from the olympics. But it'd be pretty much says like i'm done like lebron kinda did to get talked into it. I feel like. I don't know if i was if i was the usa team would try really hard to get carmelo blake because his style. Whatever it is to the nba is perfect for the national basketball. He's a really good or national basketball player. On this subject damian lillard. He spoke for the first time. Since the hiring of chauncey billips. Only listen to what little had to say about his future in portland. I'm prepared to go in and do my job every year. Like hopefully we make strides over direction and could become a better team a new coach notice. That's where i am. What soured it sounds like. Lillard is at least nominally on board with going back to the blazers. But if i'm a team out there with assets. I don't listen to that response and say well it's over damian. Lillard is back on the same page with the portland trailblazers. If i'm a team with assets i hold onto those assets because it feels to me like the blazers might be one like sixteen to start from blowing that whole thing up with louis mccollum on the way out the door so get the sense now. That seems more likely than not that damian lillard at blazers training camp. He's in ablaze uniform. He starts the season with the portland trailblazers. But if it doesn't work with chauncey billips early and you get close that trade deadline. It wouldn't surprise me at all to see portland decide. Look we've got a. We've got to do something here and opened the door for damian lillard trade. What do you think. I think that nothing has changed. I think that his remarks last week because he sounded a little bit lukewarm. Or just you know you hear one of two things. Well you want to hear one thing if you're a portland trail blazers fan or if you're just looking for any indication that lillard is all in your you want to hear him say listen. I know things are rough right now. But i'm all in you know this is. This is where. I want to be you to repeat all the usual talking points that you hear from players in his position and that we've heard from bradley beal that we used to hear from james harden houston. Which is a win in phil in city fill in the blank with the city. I want to win here. I don't wanna go somewhere else. You know we're going to get this right blah blah. He didn't go down the usual list. And so i think it left open. Some interpretation but getting has changed like the disappointment was clear when the season ended. Some of the things have happened since including obviously the the the train wreck away they went about the the coaching search and lillard. Being caught in the crossfire. There at feeling heat from fans about chauncey billips being selected and so. I don't think we should expect he's going to be rah. Rah right now The trailblazers have a lot of work to do. But we also have not even hit the summer yet. Like there's the draft hasn't happened yet. Free agency hasn't happened yet. There's there's a lot of work to be done. And i think if you're damian lillard which you're probably doing is internally saying here's what i need to see happen externally saying you know what let's let's wait and see i mean you see. He can't he can't say publicly the same things that he's telling say neal o'shea right about what the the state of the roster i i would think that there are some very impassioned debates or discussions being held behind closed doors about what they need to get this thing right and if they can't get it right the he might shift is his stance about staying there long term. But that hasn't happened yet that we know of. What do you think the most interesting potential conversation is amongst players over these next four weeks like i'm kind of curious what jason tatum bradley beal talk about. Tatum and beal close friends dating back to their highschool days both went to the same high school bill with something of a mentor to jason. Tatum actually got him involved with his trainer. Drew hanlin which helped. Tatum elevate his his personal skills and they've talked about how happy they are to be playing together. Played the all star game together for the first time beal last year of his contract. Like you know we've seen these conversations yield real tangible conversation. You'd like to be a fly on the wall on for any of these guys in the next couple of weeks. Yeah i mean look we. We have a history now going back over a decade. If we're to believe that the that the heels were formed in part through team usa activities. You know which is true which is true. That's that's yielded an extra things guy. You know guys who you mentioned. Tatum and bill because they were already friends but guys also become friends through this experience right and then they start getting the ideas about playing together. Like oh hey. This is a lot of fun. Let's do this again in the nba. So there's i'm i'm sure some of that is is happening. It always does. Who else in that group. I mean man. If any of these guys that'd be trying to recruit bam out a bio but he's too early in his in his contract with miami to pry him loose from there And you know the heater still a pretty potent team but you know jimmy butler is up there in miles and outta bios future won't necessarily be there forever. That's the way it goes in the nba. I think tatum has the potential to be like the biggest recruiter. They're like he's about to start the first year of his max level extension. He can recruit bill. But like you can also does damian lillard like. It's great to play in boston. I love it here. Answer some questions of my have a playing on the east coast for the first time. Like i think data might be boston's best asset at this point. Yeah again some of this comes down to bradley. Beal's coming up to that point where he has the leverage to task out because of his contract lillard under contract for several more years and so he's not in that position. So what if it says. Like i need to go like. I don't foresee the blazers being no finish your contract. Just don't see it. i think right. And they would work with him on a deal to sure but directing it is harder so beal can use the leverage of his free agency to say well if you send me to team x. I'm not gonna resign there. Which then blows up that deal and he can direct himself to the team he really wants to be at lillard would have a harder time to doing that. Because he doesn't have free agency looming two to play that card. Yeah well i encourage any reporter. That's in tokyo tatum. Beal and lillard talking to each other. Just take a picture and then let the internet go wild crazy because it will unquestionably last thing for you. Howard the breaking news. This week in the coaching ranks. Is that jamal moseley is headed to orlando moseley of course last with dallas. A really well respected assistant coach there. Who was a candidate for that. Maverick job before. It went to jason kidd my immediate reaction to that higher howard beyond i think being an excellent choice for orlando is that we're gonna look at at moseley and jason kidd on parallel tracks. The next couple of years moseley. There was a strong case to be made that he should have been elevated to that head. Coaching job he'd been considered for other head coaching jobs. Before most recently in new york he had by all accounts a great relationship with luka doncic i understand bringing kit in he's got a history with dallas and as riccar lau said publicly having a player that played the game like kid and having a player that plays the game like don-shik make some sense to pair those two guys together. But there's always going to be as i watched these two situations unfold. I'm gonna wonder you know. Did the mavericks make the right choice. Leading jamaa moseley go and bringing jason kidd in and there's so many variables in this the first being at orlando's in step one or maybe even steps zero of a massive rebuild right there in the negatives right now. I think there's still maybe more fat to trim on that roster before they really bottom out. Yeah and you know you talk about trying to build around. You know markelle foltz. And and jonathan isaac jonathan isaac for so long. They're getting hurt and he's a great player but they've loved writing in a weird way john stays healthy. He's still more of a complementary store right like he's he's a potentially defensive player of the year at some point. He's not a guy who you're building an offense around though and marquel foltz okay. He he got himself back on track in orlando. He has a career now where he didn't have one but he's not a foundational building block. Come on like that's crazy so the roster doesn't have much talent jamal. Moseley's is coming into a situation. Which a lot of first time head coach is committed to which is all right. There's a lot of work to do so You're gonna have to do a lot of development. You're going to have to take a lotta lumps in the win loss column. It's gonna be rough going for the first year or two or maybe three. Let's see how they can get things going. But you know as it has been a certain other like kenny. Atkinson came to look a completely hopeless situation in brooklyn but was known as development coach in atlanta. And sure enough. Everybody who went there. Joe harris spencer. Dinwiddie jared allen versus lower. First round picks. Guys who were you know whether they were reclamation projects whether they were low picks everybody seems to get better the second they went to brooklyn and play kenny atkinson and his staff congenial. Moseley have the kind of effect in orlando can the front office. Get him to kind of guys. That will thrive in that in that kind of environment and carve out careers from cells and carbon identities. Jamal moseley has a lot going for him. And we've heard like many great things about it but we often hear great things about assistant coaches who don't end up panning out so i always. We have to caution ourselves on these things. Because i thought. Brian shaw was gonna be a great head coach and he was. Everybody loved him all the players sung as praises when he was associate head coach under frank. Vogel indiana he goes to denver probably just the wrong guy at the wrong time but he hasn't had another shot since then but that went really badly. Brett brown was really great in in some respects for the for the early years of the process and then suddenly. It seemed like they'd hit some sort of ceiling. Eager kokoschka of had been talked about for years is a great assistant. Coach didn't work out. Swells head coach in phoenix. David dale bumpy ride in memphis and then disastrous in new york. We just don't know like luke walton. Another example like there are plenty of coaches who as their when their assistance. We hear and see the best of them and then you know some of them be go on it and have great success coaches. I mean tyler has been fantastic. Mike malone has been fantastic money williams. Nick nurse dwayne casey a lotta longtime assistance. Get their shot and then you know it. It works out in a dozen. It's all contextual. It's all just the opportunity you have the thing for dallas is. They went with a guy who has experienced jason kit. That experience was not necessarily good experience. Like i think most people around the would look at what he did in milwaukee in brooklyn and say. I'm going to steer clear. Maybe you'd rather have the the unproven. Jamal moseley versus the somewhat proven jason kidd but. I don't think we'll know what the right choice was there for a while yet. Because it's it's gonna take some time before we can evaluate moseley as head coach. I maybe jason kidd learned something in two years as an assistant. I mean that happens. You know working with lebron for entire for two entire seasons working under frank vogel maybe picked up some things that'll be useful to him as a head coach. Moseley to me. The key is giving him time. Like you've got to be committed to moseley for a minimum. I think of three years and more likely five years. And then you see what you have in head coach. You mentioned gore. I mean it's worked out for phoenix. Absolutely but i do think he got hosed out there i mean he only had one year on the job and that year was without deandra aiden chris. Paul had devon booker of course but that was not a good team that he was coaching. There i gotta get moses the because you want to see what the guy can do when you put that team in a position to win a great example to me is james breglio in charlotte. I mean berea. Was one of those guys assistant coach elevated to head coaching position in charlotte. Not great first couple of years there but when he was given players and chance to win he did pretty well. I mean up until lamelo ball went out the horns were really good team and i think they will be a good team. Going forward in part because of the borrego is a pretty good coach. I want to see this magic team. Invest heavily in jamal. The you're the guy developed these guys and we'll keep you around no matter what the won loss record says until you get a chance to win then you judge like brett brown six or seven days since brett brown left but i can see the for letting go of brett brown. I mean they had a talented team and to a degree the underachieved. But you've got to let the coach get a roster on that level before you really make any decisions about whether they can coach. Yeah well and that's the thing about. This is what set up says apart. I think the good organizations from the bad ones is that you you decide when you choose a guy. Especially if he's a longtime assistant not a guy with head coaching experience. And you've said we believe in this guy. This is somebody who's got a great trekker record as an assistant. We're going to first opportunity. It's your obligation to when you say investment. Yeah it's time investment. It's a give them all the tools to succeed. Give him the time to succeed. You've decided you believe in him. So stand behind that have the conviction to stand behind that and take some bumps along the way you know maybe maybe memphis and or the knicks should have stuck with david physed longer. You know we had heard nothing but great things about fiscal coming out of miami. Initially we may yet you know. Find out that he. He can be great head coach in the right situation. Maybe those worth rights situations. He might be one of those guys though. I love physios and assist one of those guys. Though the just the temperament is always important. Like the government like memphis yet. Some battles with market assault didn't work out your plus new york. You just might be one of those guys that doesn't have the right temperament to be is based on what we've seen a memphis in new york might be better suited for these ranks but if he succeeds in l. a. I think he'll get another chance right. Maybe i think the point being though that if you as an organization have identified a guy instead he we believe in him then. Okay then believe in him. Stick with them and make sure you've given them enough tools to succeed Is it a pulling the plug at the first sign of of struggle and that's what happens in the nba. too often. is that seems panic. You know the fans turn. There's some minor flare up. Oh the coach and player got into it. Whatever it may good teams that can happen on as well. And it's it's just. It's the way franchises. React so you have to know whether or not the guy is is is right and then stick with them. And so yeah. Let's jomo's should get a nice long here. She got a ton of latitude in orlando given where they are as an organization given the state of that roster. Yeah i agree. Howard enjoy milwaukee looking forward to hearing the conversation with the lazarus on friday. You can check podcast. Right here on the crossover feet again. Make sure you listen to howard's interview. Spencer dinwiddie from last week. It was really really strong. Enjoy -joy the mid west our. We'll talk when you're back on the northeast always a pleasure. My friend the newest player in the pre nba basketball landscape is overtime. Elite elite will begin playing sometime in the fall. And we'll be headlined by some of the top now. Former high school players in the country players would be paid minimum one hundred thousand dollars with some making north of that and have access to high level facilities training as well as educational programs to help. Get a better grasp on that. I'm joined by brandon williams the head of basketball operations for overtime. Elite and kevin ollie the former. Nba guard uconn. Coach was the head coach and director of player development bread. And i want to start here with you. Just kind of give me the ten thousand foot view overtime elite. What are the objectives. What what what was behind the formation of this league. I think any of us. Chris who've been around for a long time i've actually seen Sort of the downside of young players who entered into professional ranks to this point. It's been the nba Who are not ready. And so what does that mean you know not not ready to form and be stars or is it just not ready to be great teammates or is it not ready to be good partners. is sort of all that you know the idea that the work day is much longer than they know. And that there's more responsibility to be in a professional athlete The responsibilities to families and communities we just have to do a better job preparing them and here was an opportunity to be part of a program that wanted to address all that. It's not just about being a good player. It's like we wanna address the whole athlete. Hope so on. Three levels were hitting basketball. Easiest thing understand. I think businesses in our world is education And then there's brand you know. These young people now are moving at a speed that we aren't as older folks and they want to build things An earlier age particularly off the court so building a brand is important something that can last well beyond their tread on tire so we're hitting it in basketball business brand. That's that's that's really thirty thousand foot view. Kevin what attracted you to this job. Just like his dad is the whole person being able coach them from a mind body and soul Experience and understanding the mindfulness athlete I've seen it from a pro level. Got up tune into play thirteen years with twelve different teams so i understand like the different trials and tribulations you go through with a player not saying that these players are gonna go through that but is getting them more prepared if they do come into some certain situations where it's not typically going the right way. How can they manage that situation. So what they do today can echo into tomorrow and having the ability to kana paint on a black blank. Canvas is what a really attracted to me to to this you know. Ot league program we can take the player really shape the curriculum you not with teaching them about subjects. But we're really teaching them about themselves as well from media training From mental health issues. All the different things that come involved because we all know chris is stress. You know from success is a lot of pressures is a lot of people pulling at you. It's a lot of people won't certain things. But how do you deal with that from a player's standpoint where you can play when you get on the basketball court and half clear and not be caught up in the distractions of off the court issues. Um as desks desks were really kind of vocal. Spirit to give back in it and how these kids you know. Have these players be available at the moment of truth to make the right decisions and that was very important to me. Kevin as you mentioned you played in the nba brand. You played in the nba. As well i wanna ask both of you guys and kevin. I'll start with you like if this was available to you as sixteen. seventeen year. Old looking back. Would you have founded attractive with a definitely founded attractive You know i kind of thought the box anyway. I was from chris. Shaw from from from south central and i chose connecticut. So you places that. I didn't even know nothing about growing up. You always thought out the box and never wanted to go down a path that everybody was going down So i was always curious. And i think that's how my mom especially my mom. My dad raised me. So i definitely been curious of this situation. No no speaking now without you know took it. I'm not sure. But i think it really gave me another option to look at it and this is what we're trying to do not saying that the ncaa is wrong overtime. Leaders wrong or right. It's not about that. It's about if you really care about the student. Athletes you give them as much options as possible. And i think this gives the lee student athlete. Another option and i think you know it's a very Great option for them to have and if they choose overtime league we're going to give our whole heart to make sure they're developed on and off the basketball court chris i- jumping after coach It would have been interesting. Chris but i certainly would not have been a candidate i would. Let's just get that right. What what things that's important. We sit down going through just grassroots community and we spent months just talking to people educating about. You know what we're about who we are. Each of us has a reputation in some other space. Not here The this program isn't for everybody is not the right fit for everybody. We are cherry picking and a lot of ways. These are players that feel like they are destined for professional basketball. There are a lot of sixteen year olds. That don't know that yet and their parents aren't convinced that yet in people that support them. Don't don't feel that confidence yet. They may be another year away or two years away but this is not. This is not the right path for everyone. Twenty four athletes roughly twelve per class. We're looking at juniors and seniors and the truth is at this age. What was really funny about scouting them is everybody's skinny and like a lanky and underdeveloped and still has like a mountain of upside to you know to to get through before you can really see who they're going to be but you know if you have a young player like brand williams who's just dreaming of being an nba player but does not much certainty. That's even realistic We gotta be very careful about this approach In taking because there there are risks but for those that that have already established in this deke. They've established a day of separated from their class. You know jaylen. Lewis has an example the most recent example. He's he's he's elevated in separate. The draft isn't tomorrow though so there's still a lot of work to do but he's already in front running physician and it gives everyone low confidence that this is the kind of investment and the kind of pet that would make a ton of sense for players like that. Let me follow up on that brandon. Because you're you're entering. What suddenly become a fairly crowded space in terms of leagues like this. You know the g. league ignite is one season in but they've had a measure of success. We've seen jalen green probably a top pick. Jonathan kamenga top five or six. Then you have the ncw with this. Recent ruling allowing top players to make money off their name image and likeness. How does how does the elite separate itself from that group. Why think i is. We start a little bit sooner so the g. league zone a great job with what we call it a year the prep year that year. That a recent graduates would be going to college and they've already been hacking the system you know going to italy or china So so there's a market for those players and we want an alternative to college for for for us though. Our players are seeking an alternative to high school so we are a school but we think about the resources that were bringing to the table first of which being an nba like environment You know start coach. Ali coach lehto in a robust set of staff. I mean scouting staff a high performance staff administrative team. Our goal was to simulate an nba organization for for young athletes at sixteen seventeen eighteen. Th there there is no other environment. Like that. And i think the big way that we separate with high school athletes Is that both domestically and internationally. We're able to put twenty four of them together in a building. So what we're selling is the best competition for these guys starts at home. I mean every day in line coaches don't minister drills administer competition aspects of practice and getting ready for games but when you look to the right and left and i noticed as a player. There's no weak link. I mean everywhere you look. There's somebody that's doing what you're doing and possibly doing more. Because they they are not just dreamed about the into the league or to the high level. They're on their way there That's where we've been able to. I think create a little separation from others that have tried or looked at something. Like this kevin. How do you approach this job. Do you do it in a similar mindset and you had at uconn where you have young players you also you know yukon. You had to keep them academically eligible you to follow that pretty closely. I mean is there is it a similar mindset or do you take a different tact. I think you just let it be you know. Similar is not. It's just whatever comes you say yes to it and you cultivate hope from it I never coached high school players. They was always you know graduated from high school. And now they're freshman's This situation is a little different in in was recruiting for two to three years. This situation is a little different. But you know from me. Chris i love the unknown about it. And that's the space i live in. Not just wanna make sure that. I have the space incorporate something in these players that they can just think about it can build from a have a foundation so when they make the transition they have every tool in the toolbox to say okay. Oh that's a problem Assess it let me be able to correct it. Let me obsessed. Let me be aware of it and i think that's the difference between you know coaching a high school kid in in the college. Kid i mean you get able to mold them a little bit better and then you have to understand where they at. Now you know back then. I didn't have social media. We didn't have social media now. These kids these players are building their brand a little bit earlier and now you just meet them where they are. And i can't wait to get them up on campus get them up until atlanta just continue to build a great relationship. Welcome spend time with the one on one in. This situation is going to provide us to do a lot more skill development that i didn't have a really good opportunity and it had not one say good opportunity. I didn't have the best opportunity. Because there's so many things we own a row recruiting You own a row fundraising these different things. Brandon's taken care of in. Dan porter is taken care of. I can just really coach the player and work on his skill development on and off the basketball court. So it's really given me my own lane. So i can really perform my job. Mama job is really breaking down and relationships it starts. Relationship is start with trust. Stars will hold is spending time with the the young student athletes on and off the basketball court and pushed them to greatness and the competition is not on. our side of competition is with him. You know can you beat your previous best bestself. Can you be better than today you know. Can you be better tomorrow than you were date. And that's what i'm coaching. And that's what i love to do. And i think we're going to have some great young man as open as biden has going to be vulnerable going to try to reach for the sky. In the sky is going to be ob- you is not going to be limits. I can't wait to get up to atlanta. We've been having some many camps. Chris has been wonderful to get back on the court with the guys. And i'm looking forward to the next mini camp and dan looking forward to getting them up to atlanta. So we really can go to work. You know when. I was was talking to brian. shaw a couple of months ago. Kevin about how he was coaching. The ignite you know it was a lot of pro stop. He was trying to bring to that team. Are you taking that same. Approach you trying to coach them like their nba players or something different. No it's nothing different is just. I'm building pro. Habits in every situation is going to be different. Chris this is going to be some guys. Come in you know. Say for instance like a. John montero will we got him and he you know is a little bit more advanced than some other players because he's been a pro- already and then it's going to be another situation where we gotta talented guy might not be able to get quick but these opportunities we can go at our own pace we can sit down and talk to them but we're really teaching and building pro habits and those habits is going to translate over to them being great pros when that opportunity come invest in the nba are the euro league so every day you know we are building like a practice plan like more of a college practice plan nba practice bandwidth doing drills. That i got from my numerous stops in the nba. You know we're doing sets in the nba. Then we gotta understand that sixteen years old as well you know and maybe sometimes you gotta you know kinda doubt it down a little bit. But i'm gonna let com. I'm going to let that go. i'm not going to focus on one of it. I'm not gonna say oh. We're doing this process. Each and every day every day is different. And that's what i love about the unknown. And i'm gonna treat it like that and we just gonna continue to bill because i think we got great mas and organization that really want to coach the whole person. And that's what i'm really excited about. You decided to upgrade your outdoor deck. So you ordered the essentials. Power washer said a patio chairs and a shiny new grill. And you use your bank of america. Customized cash rewards credit card choosing to earn three percent cashback online shopping and up to five point. Two five percent preferred rewards member which you put toward your most essential deck addition a bird feeder of yours at bank of america dot com slash more rewarding copyright two thousand twenty one bank of america corporation support for this podcast comes from invent together according to studies less than thirteen percent of all inventors who hold a us patent are women black and hispanic college graduates patent at half the rate of their white counterparts. But we can fix that by increasing participation innovation and patenting by underrepresented groups. It would quadruple. The number of american inventors and increase annual gdp by almost one trillion dollars. Invent together is a coalition of organizations companies. Universities and concerned citizens committed to ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to invent and patent because the more diverse. The american patent system gets the stronger and more successful. our nation will become. What can you do to help. Divers inventors patent and unleash economic opportunity. Find out at invent together dot org learn more and take action today brandon not to continue to compare this team to the ignite but when i talked to sharieff abderrahim about that i mean. I had asked him about the sustainability of that team. Given how much. Money was being poured in to pay some of the players. And he bobbed and weaved floyd mayweather trying to answer that question. Because it's it's hard to commit to it without say a television contract more sponsorships and things like that when you can you speak to kind of the sustainability of this because we've seen startups with an influx of cash. Get get in big the first year. But then peter out. I mean what needs to happen. Four overtime elite to become a long term successful program while has got to answers. I think you know a concept. I mean we're we're selling on the ability to develop young players and have a more more pro ready right. So this is. This is the path we are offering basketball development. Call it professional Business development And we are also like leveraging. What is an incredible media platform that again. The things that we like to call a distinguishing factors. That's a huge one. So not to bob and weave one. We gotta be good ass. You know that. That's how have long deputy spurs the spurs. They were good for really long time. And so we've got the that there were good at this note. No pressure on kale right The the the second piece though is you know and this comes from my my time in the nba. It just wasn't that long ago where it out of chicago. Pre-draft combine interview. If i said. I wanna build my brand. Everybody in the room was like smirking and like you know what. What are we talking about like. It's about basketball basketball basketball And you know if you are young team developing and not winning a lot of games truth is you can't sell just basketball because your basketball isn't great you got to sell personalities and stories in that there's something that people can invest in in fall in love with other than like the final score like otherwise. The sixers had no chance right any any development team yet to buy into a story and for us. I think we have a chance to create stories but we get a chance to show those stories because we have a platform. So it's it doesn't take much. I mean i'm not a social media guru. But when i got recruited for this job haven't been around the block a little bit certainly from an nba perspective. I heard a couple of things. I really got my attention. One was fifty million followers That's eyeballs and we all know that that Business follows the eyeballs in whatever in whatever respect. The other was which is unfair. Because i think that number changes month over month but it started at one point four and not set maybe one point eight or one point nine billion with a b. billion views of content a month that overtime in some ways has found a way to the heart. The mind of young people It is being communicated and solid as you know the generation z. sort media and content engine We are doing an amazing thing here which is developing young talent in a pure way that we want to make sure that they are prepared. Top to bottom to do well on the court to do well and communities to do well in business but then there's this other thing which is they want to be known like. No player wants to play in an empty building. Everybody wants to play where it matters. They wanna play. When nick can rock and like the building and just like recognizing their talent. We're just artists. And one thing that is kind of showcase. By one event that that overtime overtime the media company producing s called. You see it on youtube to. Is that over. Hundred million people watched that. I mean that that's not an insignificant number that players that are going to play overtime. Lee will have the opportunity to be known The the opportunity of bring brick big brands to the table and support this platform If not already indicated by the kinds of investors that that have shown interest but the brands that are coming to the table our sustainability is going to be showing value delivering value to not just the athletes but to overtime visibility. I would imagine great for them but can you monetize it. Can you make it so this league is in the black or does it need to be in the black every year. Well my the good news is as a basketball man. No different than a different than the is Get a budget. My job is to be fishing and and spend wisely. I i'm not. I'm not asked to sell tickets or generate revenue that's for a tremendous And in successful a business operations Our job is to make sure that what we are delivering is high is a high level product That you see the growth and development of our young players. What's there recruited. We gotta make them better. They need to be able to perform and probably the best testament of our success is going to be our nba. Gm voting with this pick right but with a coach saying like they did a nice job. This guy was. Well coached testament to takeo and the rest of the coaching staff. That if we're doing that will prove successful. Because guess what the next crop of recruits when we're in the gym like we're not chasing them. There's sort of meeting us at at minimum half way. We need to keep bringing high level taliban and developing talent to prove successful and i have a tremendous set of partners across academics and across content media. That will will do their part to elevate our business. Can you expecting to tap into some of your. nba relationships. I mean as you mentioned thirteen teams in twelve seasons. You've made a lot of friends over the years. We're going to see like san preston sitting in the crowd for your practices as a whole so sam and so many gyms that i know you know Kevin durant and all these guys are destinies in overtime. Just having them be around. We had our first minicamp. Ray allen showed up and not only showed up. He brought his son to work out with guys. Just it was just amazing. does just see how the branches that we can continue to pull up on and they continue to pull on us and be a partnership in. This thing is going to be great. Are you expecting to have kind of drop ins. Durant's involved with the league. You expecting these guys. Just be around. Which i would imagine would be both a resource for you but also an attractive quality to this league definitely. Definitely we going to build a place where it's going to be hopefully a development premier development destination for everybody and you know hopefully katie can come out and work out with guys and russell westbrook and james harden and all these guys that we know and i know i had opportunity to be evolved. Then it's kinda beat a veteran guys We want them to be around. Because it's not. Just me sean. It's also watching tape like these are the different drills and look how k. d. and look how chris paul is using the pick and rolls and now they're showing up that's a that's a big big bang for us with us growing these young talented student athletes To get them inspired to the next level and they're doing a great job done only gonna do. I coached him. Chris a coach me on a day to day basis. I'm open to that and we just really want to have a love affair with guys and and the end of the day chris. We want appease the basketball guys. We wanna play the right way. We want to share a basketball. We wanna run. We wanna have fun. We want how to join the game but it can't just be me me me. It has to be weak. And i'm wanting to teach guys how to be involved in any system they get drafted about. They can be a part of a productive system and be a productive partner in in the community as well no matter what city they when they arrive to the nba brandon. Before let you go. What schedule gonna look like i mean is this team playing. Just walk me through kind of what these kids are getting into. And what kind of schedule you gonna be able to put together so schedule that that is really interesting for everybody. And i wanna try to illuminate. But i've got to be careful we are still contracting with some teams But for the audience the think about it in buckets. We're gonna play independent prep schools. That's going to be a significant part of our schedule. We are a high school so we are looking to schedule. Some of the top independence that you would typically no to have a national schedule can travel that have the ability to be mobile. We're scheduling home and away with with With those folks and it looks like net set as an example It looks like you know. Folks that are playing for a national title Arizona florida california. So it'll be a widespread travel schedule for us. We're also looking at European competition so think about junior euroleague as an example. Some of the best clubs the Insects as an example Where we can get a collection of sixteen to nineteen year old elite talent to compete against us. And then as i mentioned earlier on the show we really feel like the best competition is gonna come internally and that's where our league play Comes into effect so we are looking at our group of twenty four as three teams of eight. There will be standings you'll be able to track will compete against each other. That'll be a significant part of our schedule as well. We don't want to overstep our guys one of the things. We really wanna correct leading science. Guide us here. is is minimized the wear and tear. Nobody's while still developing and preparing for a professional level place so a schedule of maybe thirty five. To forty games is our target. We started september Training camp will will begin Play by mid august. We'll be done by by Late march is how we see our schedule shaping up i'm looking forward to it brennan kevin. It's a really interesting concept and hope you guys have a lot of success with an. I'll certainly be watching a lot of. Nba people will be watching but brandon. Stay out of a set of massachusetts. Kevin has like some basketball. Ptsd from all those bc. Matchups i'm sure would probably were so tough. I don't remember kevin. It's not real like talk about it. But lita past. We'd be six thousand. That's not very nice. That's hovering kevin brand. Thanks for joining me. I appreciate it all right. Thank you chris. Thanks so much.

Nigeria Wins Historic Upset Over Team U.S.A. In Olympic Exhibition

"Men's Olympic basketball is up to eat. Well, um, it didn't start off well over the weekend, they had their first exhibition game against Nigeria in they lost What? 92 87. Team USA goes down, So we got that going for us. Wait a minute. Isn't Kevin Durant on that team? The guy that carry the Brooklyn Nets on his back. Of course. Kevin Durant. Bradley Beal Bam out of bio. Draymond Green Game. Dollar is on their Jayson Tatum. They've got a pretty good lineup. So they lost to Nigeria. Wait a minute. There's some Nigerian players who are actually NBA players. Right there are and there are a few NBA players missing from that team that are still playing in the finals. No Djourou HOLIDAY. No Chris Middleton know Devin Booker. But the Nigerian squad does have three guys from the Miami Heat roster. Also one of the Sacramento Kings, a guy for the Minnesota Timberwolves and one of Donovan Mitchell's teammates with the Utah Jazz. Good for them. Congratulations, Nigeria. I think they taught a valuable lesson to our Guys on USA team that always thinks it's going to just steamroll everybody. I hope so. Because the last time the U. S, the U. S men's national team lost an exhibition game. They finished seventh in the feeble World Cup just a couple of years ago, so Hopefully they right the ship and we don't have one of those performances in the Olympics.

Y'all you know saying we wake up still human beings. I go outside. And i'm a citizen just like so it was dope man to be able to get out there and stanford some and represents them from me. It was understanding. We were pushing voting rights. You know especially without a police brutality and everything had just happened like a may be understand what my grandparents had went through in know. Maybe understand you know my grandparents and how they didn't have the right to vote. If forced me to want vote issue you know and just low stuff like that with been marching itself was shoes for us because i feel like it brought our organization together and they opened up a lot of people. Is you know who didn't look like this. I be right so they opened up a lot of is too uncomfortable conversations to you know people kind of being ignorant to you know they're racism and it created some some uncomfortable joins but they were necessary. You know in in within organization outside the organization. I it really. It really hit home for a lot of people in participation out of everybody in organization so does best volumes. I think more nba guys to do this but how was it to be at the wnba championships and supporting the mystic. When they won the championship. I've seen a couple of guys there and supported them. And you know they wanna champ show how that to see them. The women do that and put it off these dope and we jealous. Because we ain't got one you know we a out. I'm living vicariously for him and then moment but it was. It was don't man because they got their own arena. You know they got the own setup. Now they're not in our shadows. We share practices like they have they own identity and their whole the year before they had just lost in the finals. Came back hungry. And you see you know throughout the whole year then to be able to sit there and see a win on dc floor was crazed like it was motivation for us. Like la dodgers finished off fifty forty ninety like noses or like that was that was firemen win the hand like to see them celebrating. Get their trophy man. Like that was it was motivation. You know it was still it was dope for you to be out there. I think it's important you know for all of the nba guys. Like i saw no chris paul and everybody everybody is supporting wearing sweaters buying jerseys and all that stuff i think it's it's imperative you know for for guys like yourself and everybody likes us to to support them publicly and really promote and help them you know road game and make it what is supposed to be for now. And he's got gave so much mandy mad. He looked people. We lime indie miles banned women basketball fan not part of this new movement whereby we ain't doing this since we were in high school is the is the practice with the team the minute it is at all like i've always had a relationship with our team like i like i is are we share the same facility we crossing paths like what a way role trainer on this is i definitely encouraged all i play every team owner need to have a wnba split up.

That Steph Curry ran into a formidable defender in Russell Westbrook as the Warriors air wrapping up their road trip on Wednesday in Washington. Steph Curry has to take on for the most part. The battle of the hounding the aggressiveness. Russell Westbrook and you know Russ is tenacious. I mean, The man's relentless He likes to prove a point. He likes a personal challenge. This was a game in which the Warriors were up big early. And then we're up by 11 in the fourth quarter. What got sloppy. And then the shooting went cold in the fourth and so very quickly, the Wizards were able to narrow the gap. They were definitely missed opportunities for the Warriors. But the Wizards were able to take care of. There's real rocking the cradle back and forth. I'll cut stores, right head down right block to the basket Bank and score bacon score because he runs by Russell Westbrook. Hello five as it was to fly high 1 14 1 10 with 55 seconds left. Bradley. Beal had 29 points in this matchup against Curry. Top two scorers in the N B A to start tonight, Curry had just passed. Bradley Beal Washington rallies from 11 down in that final quarter. But even in that last minute after the lay up with Dave John that you hear with Dave Johnson on the Wizard's radio network, even after that, Warriors got a big feel and Andrew Wiggins blew a wide open layup that would have tied the game in the final. I think it was the final 10 seconds I was listening to the game on the war years radio network.

"Mentioned james heart. I know he's led the league in total points in total free throws three pointers made. These also led the league in assists and for him to easily reinvent his game to where he's like getting thirtieth fifteen's triple doubles like it's no big deal like it's no big deal against trae young yesterday and i not necessarily concern about their book upfront in particular in the fourth and ot because they don't use deondraye they like the us. Jim grieg's spread the floor and down threes to play alongside k. d. and they're gonna have their deficiencies. They're not going to contain the ball. The anchors of you are at the point of attack trae young yesterday a cappella the anchor and you see both of those guys baud against the nets. So they're going to be teased that are able to allow their best players to get going but we put those three guys together. They just a special offensively when they. I wanna point out about hardening sort of how he's adjusted to playing. Its part of this. Big three than sort of being a one man is in the last five games. He's had fourteen shots. Fourteen shots nine shots ten shots last night. Twenty shots that went along with fifteen assists. Do you think he will continue to be in this sort of playmaker facilitator role as opposed to what he was doing with the rocks. He has to be jacoby. He's wanted the best in the game at doing so. Absolutely james harden game numbers like. It's no big deal it and what ends up happening. Is it a lot of dunks light..

"Because while the lakers were going on that run it wasn't necessarily even led by lebron james. He was a laker. Just play hard and all of a sudden getting themselves back into the game. So is a great character win for the sixers and it all shows the humility of your best players. There's another way to look at that. I didn't see any ego from ben. Simmons or joel tobias had to mismatch doc rivers trusted. Him put the ball in his hand. He made the play. He knocked down the shot. It's always good. You could go deeper into your roster paid big bucks. If he's going to take advantage of his mismatch like he did that makes philadelphia a lot more scared. This was a very philadelphia. Perform twenty from embiid. You had seventeen but also a triple double from simmons and you get some big buckets from harris and it just looked like a philly run that they're on they will continue and i have. Maybe pointed out that their schedule hasn't been the strongest up to this point. Win over the lakers. That keeps them in number one in the east now jail. Another team is gonna try to get that number one spot in the east because they don't have a they have a big three and that is the nets. Did they win against the hawks. Yes did it go to overtime. It gets hot team. That hasn't been playing great coming out the gate. Yes is this encouraging. Concerning for the nets for incurs watching james harden play basketball jacoby Like when people started saying best players and best point guards in the game and play. Makers.

"What about the other team. I think is interesting. I want to bring up his philadelphia so we know they were willing to put. Ben simmons in in in talks for for harden would they be willing to put ben simmons in talks for bradley beal now The rockets were interested in First round picks and Ben simmons and also possibly even other young player the sixers can trade Twenty twenty one pick twenty-three picking that's it. They can't trade picks from twenty four th through twenty seven. By the way the caveat you can only trade first round picks right now through two thousand twenty seven. The sixers do have some very intriguing. Young players tires maxi shake mill. they've got some good young talent on that rosser. Gonna put ben simmons russell westbrook together. I mean the westbrook trade is problematic. I mean he might not be healthy. You know you may may just be health thing but but the thing about it is like he asked have a wide open floor to thrive and. I don't know it's tough. It's going to be tough. The other team that i would say would be a sleeper would be the bulls zach levine's value has never been higher. They have their full complement of picks to trade from. They have a couple other young pieces on their roster that maybe could interest people and Are tourists initiative is. Their general manager has really emphasized the importance to build a team around shooting bradley. Beal's wanted the best shooters in the league. And you know the bulls have attempted to build through the draft. And they just haven't been able to make contact on star and so i think they are asleep or team. I don't know if that packages enough. Washington zach levine larkin lauri markkanen and three first round picks is that i'm saying jrue holiday was three three i plus Two big swaps like this guy is is that is that a deal that washington. I think the bulls could be a sleeper washington. You want what. Oklahoma city got back from paul george you. That's ideally but then wants those picks you'd want you want a star young guy like a shea gill alexander. You know what i mean. Ideally but here. But here's the problem you're not. You're not get bradley. Beal with leonard which is why i think i think the hard and trade is a closer thing to aspire to all the can better you know it depends on how depot will go. What if what if you could. What if denver. I'm the bulls and and lena's old friend are tourists got together and did a three way deal with the wizards. Somehow that would be nice. Well i'll say this. The bulls given up unprotected. Picks would be awfully risky. I know i. I'm just saying like i think chicago is a you know. Okay maybe maybe bring patrick williams into the talks. Maybe i don't i don't i. I like that kid. I against the clippers and he. He played really well against quiet quiet. He impressed by I don't think they would trade him i think. He's probably the most untouchable guy and their whole teams. I'm you're going to give up that kind of package of picks about the teams had given up that kind of package picks. We're talking about clippers. Obviously you know immediate championship aspirations. No paul george wonder revises history once they get food for the bubble milwaukee. Immediate championship aspirations brooklyn immediate championship. Aspirations lakers obviously for ad immediate. You're not giving up all those picks to say we can build around this 'cause you need the picks to build around him. She shouldn't right well. That's one of the things about the whole thing was like don't trade for harden and and give up all that future unless you're a contender on the other end of it right. He has to be the finishing peace. Rally deal with exactly which would be which would be the the reason against the bulls. Yeah but i think the warriors financing and it's not philly would sit would fit and made that's a situation where been simmons. Maybe it is a thirteen. I'm just saying if your wish. If you're tommy sheppard who's the gm of the The wizards and your and you come to the conclusion. I think i'm out to trey bradley. Beal okay well. I wanna star player back to rebuild with who's star player that might be available either. Potentially ben simmons because he has made available. But you know what i mean. Things are changing every well the the warriors could could they interest you in a slightly us. Andrew wiggins thing about wiggle room. What overall pick. There's so much money. Three years and ninety million on that contract in my view if wiggins like. Let's say let's say the offer is those two picks by the way Golden state is restricted from trading Picks after this year as well because They sent a picture rubric. That's multi-year protected. So they can't trade. They're there pick this year and they can trade that minnesota but they Twenty four after that But anyway if if if the warriors said okay the offer is those two. I plus wiggins i'd say okay those two. I are interesting for bradley. Now you've got to Incentivize me to taking on weekends. What else are you sending me that. Take on wiggins. What about the. Pelicans have the full allotment of the raucous. As we've got a ton of picks is there a way they could figure you know. I i've not looked the roster trying to figure out that would be a may. I mean enough. Neil ingram zion. Three to be recommended for starts playing defense. I on his zaylon is one of the most devastating interior scores. I've ever seen in my life and he does almost nothing else. I did a piece on him that ran last week. Unfortunately for me at ran the day of the Of hard got totally washed under. But i spent a lot of the hard circus keeps on berry I spent a lot of time watching film and talking to scouts on him. He he wants to be. He wants to be a good player he does i. I i back. He shows an interest in it but he's physically not able to do it number one and because he's just too heavy he he can't move around. The court teams take advantage of him and he is not developed as offensive game. He does not have to be guy who shoots five three a game but he is taken like five shots. Outside the paint this season he made four three pointers in his first ever game. You remember that he's made two three pointers since okay. Wow and the and the scary. And again i don't i not. They don't as a team they don't make threes. That's a guy who makes on that team. That's another problem so know. I don't know where he's free throw shooting. Free throw shooting has is in the sixties. He's not showing development and the thing that i found as i was doing it i went back and watch some of his defensive highlights duke which i remembered but he was a defensive playmaker. There's there's the one where he came. Flying out of nowhere swatted. The corner know eighteen row of questioning. Like we're talking about a guy who you saying. He hasn't shown development like and his last six game series. Averaging like i saw twenty seven point. Seven point eight rebounds. I known losing like every single one of them. He he doesn't offensive rebound. Okay offensive rebounding. He's a beast he gets it off. Rebound you might as well give them two points because he goes right back up and you can't stop them. I'm telling you. Even he gets his shot. He shot more than anybody else in the league..

"Bradley beal. My guy bradley bills ball out of control. However wizards are not bradley. Bill sixty took a l. He dropped for you. The next night took another aol we. I don't know what was going to I didn't have much At have much faith in russell westbrook. Bradley bill duo. However i didn't think it was gonna be this bad russia so my question to you is like how do you you know. There's you know wi fi is getting involved like bradley bills booze getting involved. She's like fed up to about the situation. And i get it. It's never good. That's never good. That's never good. Never gets added a second bus. Never good brand bills obviously fed up but he will not ask for a trade. At what point do you just figure out like. You always good this. This situation is bad. And like i won't even be mad at you if you asked for trade right now like. I don't even know what i'm like. Begging bradley beal broke. Get about it here. Man you better deserve a better situation than you have right. Am i wrong. Refilling this way and do other players feel this way when someone is like ball and out of control and the situations is trash. I think i think i think most news that play in the league would would look at any kind of feel like you do about that. Like damn get home. Yata there that that he's just he's too nice and it's being wasted on a bad team. I i don't see. I'm not there in washington. I don't know anyone there. I don't know how it's all played out like has washington kind of bend over backwards in some regards for bradley beal. Have they make concessions. Have they tried to do things. Right by bradley And it just hasn't worked as a team. Like i don't know what's going on there i would ask you logan though and i think it's a fair question and i think bradley beal fantastic but like you're just kind of assumed because he's getting all of these numbers and all these buckets that he's not the problem and i'm saying are you saying okay. I'm not saying that. But but but i think sometimes i like you know and we're gonna probably get trae young at some point right you can score. Ask slow two point and be this phenomenal score and it's not leading to wins. That doesn't mean that everyone else around. You can't get it done. Do you understand what i'm saying like. That's not always the case and i'm not saying that that's what's going on in washington but i don't always just point the finger at everybody else. I you know what i'm saying. Yeah but i. I just in also thomas moran just tore his acl to man. That sucks man. That's tough that's tough for him. But i got a point in time. No like it's disheartening. To see. I was a graphic the other night that i tweeted out where where bradley beal was scored thirty eight. It was midway through the third quarter. He scored thirty. We got there. It was up to thirty ended up when thing and we'll at scored eighteen in the in the third quarter right but they were down like eighteen. Nineteen points that's his heartening to see. And i get what you're saying. We talked about Even alluded to it about devon booker earlier about how You know a guy can just put up numbers and just be that empty sky. And i don't think i think the demo booker's proven that he's otherwise at this point but i think what bradley i think needs to get into a good situation because at this point washington hasn't shown to be a great situation for a lot of guys you know Scott scott brooks and things like that it just hasn't really a great organization from that standpoint. So i'm more in line to take brad side on this azan. He might need to get about it here now. I'm cool with that. Because i think i don't think bradley. Beal is the problem. But i do think it's fair sometimes to to look at it from both sides right because if you're someone else on that team like let's say you're sitting around and you're like whoa dan da lake. You know he had sixty none of us get shot and so how the fuck are we supposed to win like you know what i mean like is coded. He has sixty three jack up and the rest of the starting five guy. Five jacks up and we we lost like i think that's a fair conversation to have. I think briley bills in any of the team. He could still do that. It might translate into wins. He's like to shawn watson for me now like dope like you know. They're w can see what they're doing. They're they're really really good. The organization is somewhat dysfunctional. Like they're gonna get that right. Would you like to see a. Let's see where would you like to see him play. Would you or what team would you like to see him on. Or would you think that might be salvageable in in dc. Right now. i think washington is going to try to salvage it like bradley. Get to a point where he just is like. I can't. I can't do this anymore i think. And that's what i was saying. When when you're when your wife starts tweeting. I mean that it's not good for your wife to tweet like she. She can do whatever she wants. I mean it's never a good thing for the relationship between you and the team at the end of the day right like that's that's what it's going to start going like. Yeah we're and so you know bradley's going to have to dip what team. I don't even think i don't even think is also like the wifey doing that. S when when other family members do that right send general before we get to the teams that he wants to get to. I think we got a good conversation. Point how do you keep like all the homeys and.

It would be my preference to keep Jamal Murray But this team is lacking something And I don't think it's going to fall into their laps like Michael Porter Jr did. They're going to have to make a deal that hurts. We're gonna have to take somebody that they they raised whether it's whether it's Ah Porter or a Monte Morris. There. They just beam with pride over the way they've been able to develop those guys. Those guys are Jamal Murray. It's They pride themselves on development. And it and they love those players. But if you can look around the MBA landscape And find out Ah trade potential trade partner That's gonna land you on all star. You got it. You can't be afraid to make the move. Again. I I I didn't know that one of the steps and building a championship team is Tio. Fall fall far short of where you even were the year before. It doesn't look like I mean, that looks like going down steps, but I thought that we were going up them. I thought that's what building Wass 5 to 29872 will continue to take your Ah Nuggets thoughts.

"And now the low has welcome to the low post podcast social distancing version. Whatever this is just continues. I am very excited to be joined after some technical difficulties that are. Apparently this is how. We live now by wizards. All-star Shooting Guard Bradley. Beal our you. I'm doing where I'm hanging in hanging in so I'm going to open by giving you the floor because I am one of the idiots who left you off my all star roster this year and I got talking to from your agent about it and then you and then you proceeded to score like a thousand points every single game after that so the floor is yours. Tell me why was wrong. And how angry were you about not making you look very angry about not making all sorts of you played angry. I was angry but I want to have played. I didn't say I've played angry because the at the end to make the playoffs star game was with was I'm not mad at you for for your your votes because for me. I'll never take a moment away from other twenty four guys Because that was me two years ago and in a year ago you know so. I can't sit here and take their moment away from Jason Tatum. You know and Donovan Mitchell in guys who got their first one you know so I I can't sit here and do that But for sure after like I deserved it for like my numbers in the way I was playing an impact that I had on my team You know show that that I should have been in law store. Nothing around the League show that I think the fact that the players voted me to actually start in the game itself was the fine itself should that I should have been but You know I didn't let it break me. I just continue to working you know. I'll always continue do. When did you become did? Did you start thinking about? I think if the season ends now we're currently where we are. You're averaging thirty point five points per game. I think over thirty. That's just that's just as bad as if you can average thirty when did you? Did you become aware of that at one point? Did it become something you cared about in? Oh so funny. Because my trainer Not Jerusalem. About two years ago two summers ago We were sitting in a gym and we were trying to figure out how to get all star game that. That's that's what we re trying to do. You know we were trying to figure out how to take our game to that level of being in on all star in a how to be a star in the league and you know we made those strikes those steps and then we were actually sitting there and address to. Do you think it's realistic from me? To to average thirty. And he said yes and no he was like yes or no honestly. That's why I loved her because he's a straight shooter. He's he's going to be honest with like an no. He's a like there's areas in your game that you need to improve on in order to even get the thirty. You know you need to get to the line. More need to probably shoot more threes. Which is all stuff. I've been doing so It's crazy because two years ago we set. We Sat. Jimmy asked ourselves can. Was it possible and we left the conversation saying yes and so for the last two years that was actually my goal was to try to average thirty game and sure enough like midway through the year. I started finding ways to make it easier from you to and sure enough it was like I'm looking at thirty again. I mean the scoring was coming so easy to like you would get in the middle of the second quarter and they will. Brad got twenty already. It's going to be another forty point game. I'm GONNA look like a Moron again for the twelfth day in a row for not putting them in the All Star game so so you're at thirty point five. If the season comes back you now have to average thirty. Do you have to be. You have to go like even if you just sit out you have to have so by my question. Is this though like you guys are ninth th right now but? I think it's a pretty distant night. So how does how does a player like? How do you conceive of like? Is it really worth it for me to come back after like a two or three month layoff? I five games when our chances of making the playoffs with five games remaining are are pretty close to zero. Do you WanNa do that. Is there some physical risk in that for you officer? You know it's always I mean especially now you know because we haven't been doing anything for Months going onto who knows a lot you know so I think ultimately not even just think that plays a factor for preventing legally out take. Anybody can just come back and go from zero one hundred you know and you know. Pick a riot. We left off is going to be some bad basketball. If that's the case you know so For us sending position wearing yes. Tough you know. I'm always optimistic. I'm always gonNA feel like you know we can do it. you know but eventually reality will shuttle and You know I think when that time happens. I think we'll look at organizational probably forgot what's best You know moving forward. They want the youngest to get the minutes in improve the experience You know for me. I always want to compete clay. You know so a blessing for me during this time because I actually have a gym in my house so I can. I'm still getting my shots. Give getting my work in a weight room. So hopefully I can pick by. We left off. Reduce Resumed season. Yeah I feel like every Max or like everyone making over twenty million dollars in the NBA. Who Doesn't have a gym in their house is now the first thing they're going to do. And this is over a building gym. 'cause I think Jaanus doesn't have gym or like there are some super duper stars. Don't have to. What do you do it like Steph? Curry's putting up a hoop in his backyard. Like what are you doing? Man Building is funny because mark. Bright before about this hobbes mark was like. Why'd you need Jim? Your House? Why have actors? Are you have a whole practice facility? That's what it's for. You know. Your House is to get away from all of that was like yeah but I really loved the House and sure enough. He takes two days later. I'll man those smartest investment you ever made like a gun in some now. Now it's been offering me so you know it's it's free blessings and the cursing his case. Because I will use it if if if it gets out of hand so so It's been a tough couple of years for the wizards tons of injuries Some turnover at the top organization. I don't think until until maybe a couple of weeks before you sign that extension before the season I think most people would have bet against you. Sign in the extension. Given the direction of the franchise Why would you come back? We did the easiest thing for you to do it but I think I'm in the prime of my career. The team's not going in the direction I want. I will be the single most appealing trade ship on the market this year. Let's do it. Let's just let's get out of here. Why did you send those exactly what you just said? These away That was granted it. It looks great but who's to say it's it's a guarantee on the other side you know and for me the whole summer last year. I just kept playing devil's advocate on both sides like I say what are the positives and negatives if I leave positive and negative in ultimately Affleck's staying positives outweighed you'd be and the reason being is because I had more control here if I have organization who basically gave me the keys. You know we're going to help. We're going to build around you. We're GONNA get guys around like if I go anywhere else. Granted it may be a good team but I will be peace. You know our you know who knows if my role will be the same Years I love what it is. I love books. I love what we have. Elevate young guys you know and I think the fact that we actually have guys who are committed to gain better you know. Granted we re top five in office. Our problem is we just can't guard a grandma so it will. It was all ugly Israel so you know our biggest thing was just you know how. How do we get better on that end and I think throughout the year? We've we've done that. We've shown glimpses of it up to go just an experienced We just have to you know. We had young guys who were talented than we have. You know vets who helped locher ministry throughout the year with it was just a few plays here narrative just piece together and I think being able to make some moves this off season in getting John. I think that feels a lot of those gaps that we there has been now for five years six years just endless noise of do Brad and John Get along Kandar coexist on the court. And I just read a player's tribune piece. You wrote maybe a year ago saying I read all that stuff. I heard all this stuff. Comedian John Coexist. I read it. I banked I put it in my my brain for motivation. But like what's the truth? Did you John Ever have issues? Disagreements like was there ever anything to it in. Oh I honestly think it was something media stirred up and I think we allowed it to kind of affect us in a way you know I think I wanNA say affect us but I think we allowed it to kind of inner rl. It was noise that was noticeable. We couldn't ignore it no so Eventually to the point to where we actually had a conversation that you have Low Do you have it? And that's what it was. You know. It was enough of the you know he saying this. He feels this way like if we have a problem. We're both grown man. We're not going anywhere you know so we is two things this either either. GonNa be childish about it you know. Continue to know who like avoid each other not talking out kind of lip whenever whoever started off stirred up or be about it in you know figure out how we can be better as as players For and it was just kind of weird. How all came about. But you know till this day even when I was back in high school I have no John. The first time I've ever met him was at a I remember to this day was..

Self all pairs has you he He can be Stephan shooting if you shooting competition. If it's if you leave it up to him he believes that you know. And that's what I loved about it. I loved it about him. You know because that's when I look at my game in how I evolved. I'll I'll tell you a lot of people they're like well. What did you work on this off season? I was like well my confidence in just believing that you can do whatever that you WanNa do out there and that plays a lot in. I think it plays a huge factor until the game. You know if you don't believe in yourself if you don't think you can do it. You've already already defeated Paul. He was always that guy who he can go above and beyond no matter what would it may look like can be ugliest. Look in you know situation. And he's GonNa make the best out of it and he's GonNa come out over. Don't up that confidence and that feeling it's not like you tell me if I'm wrong. It is not just something while I'm Gonna I keep saying to myself so it's true it's to me. It's the preparation every single day. The confidence comes from knowing I am prepared. I have put the work in and if you have haven't you can tell yourself anything deep down. You know you. You always know and I remember quote from Michael Jordan. Michael Jordan said. They asked him just like do you. You get fearful. Do you get nervous before games or you know. Are you fearful to go out there and try new stuff or whatever he was like some. I've never played with with fear. He's I because I believe in the work in the preparation that I put into the game. I believe in the craft. You know my my work put into my crafty night in in the night out you know and so when I go out there and play. It's suzy should be second nature. You know this is. You should be confident in knowing that you know you've put in all the the energy to blood sweat and tears just for you know a two hour game you know. You've been working long summer hours during the day during the night. You know up all night just trying to figure out watching film whatever may be. You're dedicating yourself to the game and prepare yourself in a way you. You know that when it's time for the bright lights to come on you should embrace that moment in no that you're gonNA go out there and kill it. You were the most highly recruited player in the country country first team all America player of the year in high school at Saint. Louis why did you pick Billy Donovan and Florida could've played anywhere Billy from me he was only Costa. Didn't guarantee me anything. He didn't guarantee me. I was GONNA start in guarantee meals on play He didn't guarantee me I was going to like it. He didn't guarantee mails going to like plan for him because he was a tough coach and he was a whole at times but for for me. That's what that's that's what it was for me. It was one getting away from Saint Louis probably as far as I possibly could to kind of develop into a man of on my own and in the twos just having that trust with coach because out for meals just always developing a A relationship with the head coach like your assistance. They're always going to be your backbones. You know while you're there you know they're always there to pick you up and help you and help shape and form. You put your relationship with the head. Coaches is everything thing and we had a great one ever since I was in high school and you know I made my decision actually my sophomore year two in because it was just I believed in what he did you know. He put a lot of guys into the pros was pipeline at that time right when they won two national ships. It was like three three years after the three or four years after that he was recruiting me so it was still fresh Had A great team I love. I love the state of Florida period. And there's a no brainer for me. Honestly what do you think of the idea. Brad of a shortened NBA season. It's funny I actually said last night I think we should have sure season for like eighty. Two is a long long time long. A lot of games a lot of games a lot of games especially spread out the way that they are. You know the the amount of the bags to foreign five nights like I feel like a lot of those things can. NB We can tame those. Would you be willing to give back some money to have to do it. That's thank. You gotta be able to do that so I think in a way. It's it's you know. I definitely respect the Jordan said of the other day. I'll pay you to play all eighty two. I respect that you know I think we're gonNA cutback we gotta be open to that. Well speaking of that. You've got practice off of a game in Boston here in Minnesota Brad.

I think the biggest thing I learned is that you gotTa work on your craft every day. You know we all know that as you know as hoopers Experts we know that but to see a vet set in his own even remember year was sixteen seventeen th year still be the first guy in Alaska to leave ice and his body Take Care Eva's body just doing everything that he was supposed to do at that age instill planning a high level for us. They're really hit home with me. You know I it really believe me snap out of it and realize like be you can really play for a long time. You can get multiple contracts if that's what you desire and just being around him for year was was amazing. You know true leadership skills like I thought pause a pure asshole like I thought he he hated everybody. I thought he didn't like people thought he wasn't a people person at all But it was the complete opposite. He writes for his team like his teammate years boy like that's just how he is. But if you're on opposite team you know he he not talking to you. He not messing with you. I've learned that and color develop that same mental. You know so. It's in a way in. He kind of instilled a lot of that in John. And I and our leadership in how we how we control things. We talked to teammates. How we try to gather the troops and get things going And how to talk to each other John and how how we approach it how we deal with each other. He helped us out a lot with that as well. So he's he's a he's he's a true legend he's a true he's a true pro. He's a pro's pro. You give me an example of that with Paul when you think back of something he said or did were you went. Wow I've never heard someone say that in a locker room or do a bunch of things jump out It's hard to pinpoint one thing because he's NBA champion. Dan You know so whenever he spoke we all shut up and listen you know because he knows what it takes to get there. He's a hall of Famer. He's a fifty time all-star like he knows would.

"The Lakers the Lebron James Needs Anthony Davis the reason because we're not talking about all time we're talking about Lakers great you're talking about right now a three time champion who has the nine NBA finals he's no he's not even in the discussion on the Mount Rushmore of Lakers law because Lebron James One year in La the playoffs and so the fact that the matter is that they need each other for the same exact reason we can't put that on Anthony Davis like Oh he needs Lebron the broad needs desperately do not led to the fact that Lebron Tom is running up his basketball mortality is going to come to an end much sooner than later compared to Anthony Davis simply by attrition industrial birth certificate so when it comes down to is you look Lebron James You could say the same thing about him that you're saying about Anthony Davis but when you talk about Anthony service his level of greatness as talent is comparable to anybody you're right in terms of what he needs to accomplish and obviously being on a court with Lebron James is going to go in to provide the assistance that's needed but I don't think there's a shot that Lebron Anthony Davis ends up and Lakers Law to that degree because when you talk about Kobe will you talk about shack will you talk about magic we'll you talk about Corinne your talking about at least three championships Laker's uniform I mean you could we pay them to Jerry West Silhouette who's got one will chamberlain where one with them you can do that but when you talk about those other four guys that I mentioned excuse me I don't know how you get to that discussion got a minimum of two three championships Laker's uniform by the way it's going to be tough and the question was not who needs who more that's a separate question the question is as a D. Need Lebron Lakers great and I'm saying right now he does if you want to expand the discussion and say who needs who more I think you can Gitte argue that Lebron needs ad more as a laker right but then step back even from that lebrons place in history of security is one of the greatest players ever he's like Nipping Michael Jordan's heels it doesn't get better than that unless you're Jordan himself to his legacy is secure much like will chamberlain before he came to the Lakers now he did wind up winning chip but even had wilt not one in La he's still one of the greatest players ever on the other hand consider this Stephen ad as a package best power forward of all time but he's never gonNA pass Tim Duncan if he's sitting on zero chips Tim Duncan's five and by the way could overlap with another great lake or in other words gronk could be the first half of his career he could attract another superstar for the second half and keep winning chips if he gets at that level far far far be for me to say this to you but you are talking too much and you are bypassing the headline the big headline here you that's something that's very very important to discuss Lebron James Legacy secure not so fast yes your three top chance CBS in non NBA finals appearances but if what happened if what Max has predicted happens that might tarnish legacy if linnet rose up in La and wreaks havoc and bus Lebron's but in the process of going another championship and third NBA Finals Mvp. Like you stated I'm sorry Lebron legacy you just brought a compromise not no I'm not predicting that I'm predicting the Bra will win the MVP he will win the title the will wreck shop and remind more minutes than anyone who ever lived who still an elite player including Kareem abdul-jabbar and it's toward the end of Kareem's career some inferior center got the better him because he was ancient that did not count against Kareem and Lebron James at this age having played this many minutes this many titles the whole thing Olympics everything if the best player in the game coli Leonard gets the better of him in the Western Conference finals the Bronze Age that does not tarnish his uh snow his age and he looks that way at the beginning but if he's ball and then he's an MVP and he's wreaking havoc all these along but they're runs into walk gets his Baja waxed we've got a problem nice these are the three out in La all next week the battle of La Supremacy Tuesday. It's going to be Lakers clippers I take will cover all of it will much more into this but I have a little news for you we're talking about Bradley beal yesterday with one of the top free agents for next year off the Arquette we had a bomb Adrian Rescue tweeting this morning that Bradley beal is agreeing to a two year seventy two million dollars extension with the serves stephen a your thoughts on the bill extension Michael Goal assists I'm incredibly sad for him he deserves every penny he's a star he's under appreciated he's one of the best guys you'll ever meet in the league and I'm wishing Tommy Sheppard nothing but the best of luck but he is literally all the nation's capital has when it comes to basketball John Wall hurt not expected to be available this year Bradley beal is going to be a part of an absolutely awful roster my condolences to him and all those wizards fans that are coming to watch them this year I wish them luck by the way my feel jemaine stephen a it was like what are you doing wasting your prime on the other hand you have to tip your Cap Number One I said Zion shouldn't play equipment he said no I wanna play good you do what's in your heart right Damian Lillard I'm not trying to join anyone I wanNA stay right here in Portland to bring it and if you never wins a championship that doesn't count against him for staying and trying even though they don't have the squad that some of the other teams do and here Bradley Beal's doing the same thing this shows a lot of heart whether or not it's wise by how you are if someone else thinks is one thing but if it makes him happy I tip my cap he's trying to get it done in DC instead of turning tail and running somewhere else in joining a team hats off to him I just feel sorry for him because they're gone stink they're going to be at least they got the nationals full showtime mahomes chiefs looked to end a two-game skid at mile high unfortunately mahomes is still hobbled with ankle not to mention the many other injured chiefs Kansas City favored by three we know Denver is a difficult place to play Max tough one for the chiefs will very tough I I'm tempted AAC Denver in an upset I can't pick against mahomes and the chiefs with tyreek Hill back but it's going to be a very tough game vic Fangio's defense has come around have to quality wins in their last two games I mean you could say you can question the titans and but but those teams have at different times in the not too distant past look like decent enough teams and the Broncos have beaten them and the and the main thing is they're not giving any points now you take the flipside Steven A. The chiefs can't stop the run like the broncos are running wild but they're solid in the run game against the team that can't stop the run and how you know if there's a blueprint for the chiefs what is it ball control so defense solid running game against hobbled quarterback does have his top receiver now but can't stop the run a bad combination particularly with Denver home which is hard place to play just in terms of the climate and what that does the guys so I take Denver because I just believe in Mahomes at crunch time but this is a very tough game you know what I can understand your point with that because Tom Opposition in their favor about three victories came within the touchdown of each other we get all of that here's the flipside you got a quarterback and Joe flacco who can't move he's turning the ball over seven times six games I believe then you've got the situation on the defensive side of the ball where this starting sixth string quarterback for act prone to turning the ball over at least at this particular junction the season both scenarios work in favor of Patrick mahomes having the ball I don't know if he should be playing an three minute Philip Lindsey running the football if you're denver that's the only shot you have of making this game interesting outside of that I don't see it I don't this is going to be able at all even though it's going to be.
