"I don't think they're an easy out. I'm not gonna sit here and tell you, I think they're a contender, I just like, look, if you think it's just gonna be, hey, you're playing against a cute little kings in the first round. You get a pass of the semifinals. But let's think it out for a second. What if it shakes out that they can hold onto three? Or move up to two, whatever it ends up being, they draw Minnesota in the first round or Dallas in the first round. A team that like everyone thinks I think Dallas has more upside than Sacramento because of Luca and the glucagon. But there's really not there two and 5. We're going to talk about them in a second. There are two and 5 together. There's nothing that really suggests that they should be like favorites over the kings, Minnesota, should not be favorites over the kings and we'll see when Kat comes back. That's a winnable series. Okay, let's say they win that series. Let's see, they get to draw breaks for them. They win. Then it's two, three against the grizzlies with no Brandon Clark and let's even assume jobs back later. Or you might be looking at one of those teams in a second round instead. Like, look, I'm not going to sit it into like the grizzlies are obviously we've just talked about a lot. There's more question marks around the grizzlies and team that's going to have a home court of engine. The first round. I'm just saying, I'm just saying by far. There is a semi reasonable world where we wake up in the kings around the Conference Finals. I wouldn't pick it, it's going to depend a lot about who their first round opponent is out of these teams because if it's clippers, warriors, whatever, I think they're in for an uphill battle, but if it breaks you know, they're good. Kings grizzlies would actually be a fascinating series and I don't know how much those two markets would DriveTV ratings, but it would be a fascinating series because you have obviously the best offensive team in the league against the best defensive team in the league and the biggest on court just basketball concern about the grizzlies to me is boy. If you make them play in the mud, they're like they're in some ways to the total opposite of the old grit and grind versus who wanted to play the bud. This team, if you make them play in the mud, they are a mediocre to pour half court offensive team. Now, if you let them run and gun and fly up and down the floor, jaws pretty good in the open floor. I mean, he is an absolute force, especially when you've got coming to shoot and Jackson runs the floor really well for big all those sort of things. The kings are one team where they're, I don't think the kings are trying to slow down a series either. So that would be a very interesting series. Yeah, the kings, we'll see how their wing rotation is Kevin herder, who's a fantastic shooter and probably a slight minus on defense Harrison Barnes, who's more of a four now. Keegan Marisa rookie, Malik monk, Terrence Davis, davion Mitchell, are all kind of undersized coming off the bench rep for wings anyway, depending on who else is on the floor. I just think you get to the playoffs, you need a one better wing than they've got, but you can't have it. Okay, let me ask you a question. Aside, who in the west doesn't need one better wing. No, it's a fair, it's a fair question. Everything. I just watched two teams yesterday. They traded good wings. And I understand why they did it, but boy. Joshua kogi was 8 from three yesterday for the kings. Torrey Craig was one of four. They got saved by ish Wainwright coming in and going four or 5. Right, but I'm saying there's some wing concern there. The Mavericks dude. I mean, obviously, they didn't want to give up during Smith. There's just no way they were going to get that deal done without doing it. And now a team that since that trade's dead last and defense, obviously need another wing stopper, another three and D guy. And again, I just think you go down the list to everybody needs another wing. The grizzlies are trying to throw a 114 picks to get them cow bridges or OG. Okay, so but there are wings in their wings. And wings can mean a lot of different things. One of the things I mean by it in this playoff context is do you have a ball handler who's like 6 6 or taller and the sun's got one, the mav still have one. The king's lead ball handler is a skinny point guard or a big center who doesn't predict the rim. That's all. But I think the kings are really good. So let's talk about your hometown maps for a few minutes here. Four and 6 since the trade two and 5 in the 7 games Luca and Kyrie have played together. Offensive rating breaks your laptop. Defensive rating also breaks your laptop with Luca and Kyrie on the floor. There are plus 7 per 100 possessions plus 35 total points under 86 minutes. They're winning the Kyrie alone minutes handily and getting absolutely shellacked in the Luca only minutes. I think that's largely just kind of random noise. All these stats are jacked up because it's a small sample size and they play the spurs. And also they've played in defense of their bad defensive rating. They have played amongst these ten games, Philly, the kings twice, Phoenix with Durant, the clippers and the nuggets. So they're playing just one scoring machine after another. They are only one game over 500 now and 7th in the west, the projection systems that I use have them as a 40 to 45% chance to make the top 6. So better than 50 50 by a hair to be in the play in, which is not where you wanna be, and you watch their defense, we knew you and I talked about it when they made the trade. They got worse defensively and they got smaller. And they are really, really small across the board now, and that's manifested itself in some pretty poor defense. You do look at the numbers though, and you wonder again, given their schedule, given that teams in this ten game stretch are shooting 52% on mid range shots, this per cleaning the glass, and 75% at the rim. Now that may be all lasting problem. The rim field goal percentage may just be bad. And the Mavs are 28th in free throws aloud. Are they a little bit better than this defensively? You just watch them and they're like, dude. Guarding LeBron and Durant and like on a nightly basis you're like, this is the best they got for these matches. Justin holiday fresh off a buyout was starting started a few games. Like Josh green has had a really good season, but he didn't score yesterday, and he's, you know, he's a really good athlete, 6 foot 6, good athlete, but he's not like, you know, you put him next to Kevin Durant. He looks really small. You know, you put him next to some of these dudes that you got to deal with. And you know, he's not a big wing by any stretch of the imagination. Look, Maxie klebe can't fix everything, but unless he's really good, like a deep playoff run is extremely unlikely. And it's concerning maxi came back from a right hamstring tear where he had surgery, and I guess the tenon was torn, not the muscle, like I'm no doctor just by 8 years in college, but that's how he was able to come back as quickly as he did. But he sat out the Phoenix game because he's experienced soreness after playing a couple of games playing I don't have the minutes right in front of me, but like low 20s in the minutes. He's questionable by the time people hear this, they'll know if he plays not probably, but he's questionable for Tuesday night. Against the jazz. That's super concerning. Because he is honestly, he's not just their best rim protector, he might be their best on ball defender. Reggie bullocks the other possibility there, but like they need maxi to be a force, and look, they signed JaVale McGee to be their big rebounder in protector. They promised him a starting job on a three year deal. He was so bad. They pulled the plug after 8 games and they're playing, they're playing yogurts. They're playing embiid. He's DM PCD, like that ship has sailed. The only question is, are they ever going to be able to shed that contract before it expires in two plus years? So here's

"I did Taylor rooks show last week, and I explained to her. The feeling Howard going on the road in the playoffs in a close game in a hostile environment and making big plays down the stretch and getting a win and then getting back to the locker room with your teammates and the coaching staff and the training staff and the buzz and the energy of that. It is a drug. It is addictive. And it, it's something that I don't know that I'll ever be able to capture again. But that's why I'm so grateful that I got to experience it so many times in the 30 years that I got to play competitive basketball. I want to get back to some of that because I'm really fascinated just about the transition to your career and obviously it wasn't much of a transition in some ways because you were you were doing the podcast for the last several years of your career. So you were, you know, you had some momentum going before you retired. But I want to hit a couple quick NBA things for a minute here because as you and I sit here on December 22nd, we have, I think, in the 20 now my 26th season covering this leak somehow. I don't think I've seen parody like this. I don't know that you ever saw what during your time in the game or as a fan, this kind of parody. Four games are separating number one from number ten in the west right now. The east is a little bit more stratified, but still it's 9 teams or 500 or higher. The raptors are tenth, but they're four games out of 6. Orlando's night games under 500, but feels like a 500 team right now somehow, like they're really competitive, the same with the thunder, like those I feel like those are the two analogs for each other in the two conferences. What the hell is going on? Why do you think there's all this? I wrote about this a couple weeks ago and I got a lot of people with a lot of theories, but what's your feeling about why we're having so much parity in the league right now and is it a good thing or a bad thing? I think it's a great thing. I would start with the talent level in the NBA. I would start there because I was thinking about this even with the Christmas Day games. You mentioned DraftKings. The guys with the 5 best odds of winning MVP right now. They're all playing on Christmas Day. You know who else is playing on Christmas Day? LeBron James, John Moran. We were supposed to get Steph Curry as well. He's not in the top 5 for odds on DraftKings. So like, we've got there's a 5 games at a typical day. We have ten to 12 games. Think about that. We don't have Zion Williamson playing on Christmas. We don't Trae Young. The amount of talent in the league, the amount of players that you can legitimately say are franchise players. I think it's as healthy as it's ever been in terms of the talent level. Some of it, to me, is the luxury tax and teams having to make hard decisions. And because of the supermax contracts now, once the team signs a guy to that, your roster flexibility gets much lower and so that creates parity. You're able to build out teams now in a better way. And then the third thing, there's a lot of smart teams. There's a lot of smart teams and a lot of smart teams have drafted really well. The draft is always going to be a crap shoot. You can never sort of scientifically predict what's going to happen. Because we're human beings. And you don't know if a guy is going to get injured early in his career. You don't know how he's going to react to signing a max contract. You don't know if you don't have the proper player developmental place. You don't have the proper coach in place. You know the proper fit, the pieces around him. You don't know. But I think there's teams that have done it really well. And that this grizzlies, for example, have drafted really well. Yes, they hit on John Moran. They hit on Jaron Jackson junior, but think about the guys that they have drafted later in the draft. Dylan Brooks, Brandon Clark, Desmond Bain, who's now looks like a second star in Memphis. So I think that that's some of it. I don't think there's one thing Howard, why there's so much parity, but I think those are all that's part of the conversation, Shirley. There's things I'm leaving out. There's people smarter than me that can probably point to other factors as well. I agree with all of that and those you hit at least a couple of the factors that other people around the league had kind of suggested to me, including just the fact that as you say, like the talent level is just higher now and guys are coming in, a lot of them just ready to play. And you look at even this rookie class, the last couple of rookie classes, it used to be that you could not make an impact on winning as a rookie in this league for a long time. I mean, some did, obviously. But the generational players did. But generation. Exactly. But not the role guys, right? Not the Benedict Mather rins coming in or something. Like a little lower. David roddy from Memphis. Aldama from Memphis. Memphis mist on a single pick. Shout out to Zach climate. Jeez. The guy avoids any press or publicity and he just goes about that whole that whole front office just goes about and does their job really well. You could survey a thousand NBA fans and unless they lived in Memphis and even those folks probably could not pick Zach kleiman out of a lineup on Twitter on the Internet. Your point though, Howard, it's such a great point about the young talent and their impact on winning. You brought up the magic. I'll mention the Houston Rockets as well. Objectively speaking, neither of these teams are very good. But if you look at some of the wins that they have, why is that? Because they have talented young players. Jalen Greene, Kevin Porter junior, Shang gun, like the magic now finally are starting to hit on some draft picks. Paula Ben Caro at the time, no one thought he was going number one. He's a stud, man. He looks like a guy that's going to give you 25, 8 and 5 for the next 12 to 15 years. I'm just glad we got 12 minutes into the podcast before you went straight to the duke promotion. So that's good. And it was completely natural segue too. Brotherhood, maybe. The brotherhood. That's a real thing, isn't it? Yeah, it is. People ask about it all the time. What makes the duke brotherhood unique and

"19, I believe. And so he is after grant. Right. So he's like, it was like Brandon Clark grant Williams basically. And then a couple of pics and then Kevin gala, they were all sort of in the same group together. So he was out of Florida state, went to the clippers, turned away under the bed on the bench a couple of years. I think I traded in a salary dump or something like that at a trade in line, bounced around and was totally out of the league last year, which I didn't realize that he played the entire season with Houston's G league affiliate, and they won a title there. And now the Celtics apparently made our strong run at him to go for them in summer league. And now they offer him the two a in this final year of eligibility for two a and it's given the new two way eligibility rules here, Ryan, I see it making sense from both sides from a standpoint, this other student is still like, hey, if you, if you wouldn't, this job, like, we'll play you in random games here and Elise gets the locked in money and what it was like close to 500 K now. And kind of a win win from It's over 500 K actually. And it doesn't count against the cap either. Yeah, I mean, I don't love the idea of using one of those spots on a 25 year old center. Basically, I would always be like wings or a point guard around your J lead team. And it does, I think there's a couple of things that change that calculus, a certain extent. One is that again, this is the title theme. So maybe they're just trying to do everything they can to protect themselves against every possible thing that's out there. And so you just, you know, you're not working. You don't need another card. You don't need another guard. Well, you don't need another car. You always need wings. Fair. And the other part of it is that

"The grizzlies? Maximum drama. This is you're in the pocket of thick furno now. Grizzlies warriors, instant rivalry, you know, turned up to 11 with those two and for Kevin Durant from a player roster standpoint. It makes sense because he can lead this young team. He can be the reason why they get over the top. But as John and all those young guys get older, he can age gracefully as he nears the end of his contract. And it's easy to figure out salary wise too. So I had them written down. They obviously have the capability to do a four four one 5 for one, whatever. I have some questions. We're selling, you can answer this first one. Is Jaron Jackson in that trade? I mean, they were trying to limit those if you had your untouchables list. He'd be the second guy that's untouchable. And that's how I feel. Right. Whenever you're, you know, I think I said this earlier this week, but the rule is kind of why do I trade my solution for your problem? Yeah. So that's why you don't usually get Durant a little different, you would think. I don't think it would destroy who Memphis was, but he was just, I thought he was so good this year. And I think he's going to get better on offense too. So I'm sure they would try to figure out a way around doing that, but then it's like, okay, cool, like Dylan Brooks. All right, seriously. So if you're the grizz, if you can do a Durant off our while making jaw and triple J and bane are the three that and you can have everyone else in as many picks as we have. But we're keeping those three. So it's something like, it's Brooks, it's dire Williams, Brandon Clark, Steven Adams, expiring, and a million picks. And I'm not sure that's enough for Brooklyn. But I'm with the KFC. Well, whoo bids them, though, in that case. Well, we're going to keep going. We're selling the third pick. This is before Chicago stunk. I loved seeing this mini Chicago revival. I just loved it. Like there'd be these Saturday night games and be home and just like seeing that place go nuts. Stacy king on the mic. Yeah, hot sauce. And Adam doing it. There's something about Chicago. Like, I would love to see them be, you know, look, it's not going to be Jordan, but kind of like in the mix of like, hey, they could come out of the east. And one of their biggest issues when you started seeing the cracks a little bit, you go, if they are in a playoff series, how do they defend any of those other big wings, not to say that Giannis or Doran are even easy to defend, but it felt like they had no options and the only one was a guy and Patrick Williams coming back after a rookie year. We still don't know what to do with them. So you could probably do something where you're like Derozan. This was incredible, man. The first half of the season. What a revival. However, thank you. And then maybe you could even throw a Patrick Williams to picks, you know, maybe Kobe white. None of this is going to feel good for Brooklyn. Every one of these that we throw out there unless there's just this one anchor piece that somebody else is going to come up with. But I'm looking at more for just the make believe, pretend, you know, let's not apply the rules too strictly here. I think Durant in Chicago just would be awesome going into a year. I had them as well. What if it was a Zach lavine sign and trade? And then the bulls threw in Patrick Williams as well. KSC, is that that feel like 70 to 80 cents on the dollar for you at that point? Katie's gonna be to 16th year next year. I mean, something like that's fine. I want picks too if I'm the nets though. I don't want just a player in that case. I think there would be some picks. Bobby marks had a tweet about how he thought Durant would command more than the biggest player ever. The biggest return ever, yeah. I thought that was insane. Davis is nobody there will never be a bigger trade than the Anthony Davis trade. That is the most assets that will ever be in a trade in our lifetime. In my opinion. Unless like Giannis got traded tomorrow. Do you want plausible destinations or fun destinations? No, fun. I think the bulls is a good pick. I think I'm going to go forth and I think this is a really fun idea. Oklahoma City Thunder. Yeah. Come on home, KD. All is forgiven. The old wound. We have Westbrook is gone. That's for you. Westbrook's gone. That was one of the reasons you left. We have some cap space for you. We can create this thing. We'll use all our picks. We're going to become an instant correct. Come back here, like how LeBron came to Cleveland in 2014. Come home. Come to your safe place. You never should have left. And they try to work it out. I mean, they certainly have among the most assets. You could say. So, Chris, you suggested that on a text thread, you seem enthused about that one. Yeah, I mean, I think that the more I thought about it though, and this is kind of a long the same come on home stuff is I've always heard that he's never been.

"Been your favorite team to advise if you could have advised any team where they have all these players that you could just depending on the matchup, just be like, hey, this feels like a Zaire Williams series. No, I tell you what, I talked to the guys from Memphis at Sloan when I went this year. And I had never met them before and I just wanted to tip my hat. And they are the best drafting team. Like any time we were looking at a guy that we like, whether it was like a 48 rule guy, like that wasn't drafted, they made kanchar on drive. They basically have a bunch of spreadsheet players on their team. And so what I like to, I don't think they need me. They're good. No, I like working with people that actually value my opinion. These guys don't need me. They nailed the bane's election. I mean, Brandon Clark, they got Khan char that they've done everything, right? I mean, it's really remarkable. Look at that. Look at the team they rolled out there. It's super impressive. The data community loved Clark and Anne loved bane, both of those were like inexplicable slips. But yeah, like Memphis is to the point where if I'm like rejecting a player and I have them higher than consensus in Memphis moves up to grab them, it's to the point where I'm like, oh, oh, okay. Before anything even happened. Yeah. Yeah. I think our draft model is very, because these draft models, they're not, you know, there's only so much data from college and they're all using some form of adjusted plus minus, and it just becomes like how much your value in different box score stats. And so, but they do a very good job. And they obviously have.

"How bad I feel for draymond green either. You don't have any songs for me? No, I came on this music. Draymond sympathy. I agree, I don't want to see you guys get ejected from the playoffs for hard fouls, but don't do that. Yeah, also don't hit people in the face, yeah. Don't hit Brandon Clark in the face. And then drag him to the ground by his Jersey. It has nothing to do with basketball. I was like, not a basketball player at all. Brandon Clark could have gotten hurt, very important player for the Memphis Grizzlies. He was like their third best player in the first round. And then going on the pod and kind of talking about it and then saying that you think it's going to get rescinded and then the league is like, we're actually going to publicly say that we are not rescinding this. It was pretty funny. But the way he left the arena was also just kind of ridiculous like you're a vet. He lost. He snapped. That was just weird. Even Iguodala was kind of like, what are you doing, man? What is this? He was hyped up. A lot of adrenaline. But that is. And the thing is at the end of that draymond, that's what you want from him is that level of intensity and energy and sociopathic will to win. That's what makes him great. That's what makes him great and makes him to me one of the most fun players to watch. I could watch him defend pick and roll for the rest of my life and be happy. But he has to also be accountable to why he has that reputation and why that perception about him exists. There was one play, I'll just say about draymond that I thought was just unreal sniffed out so Brandon Clark had he was guarding Brandon Clark. Brandon Clark had a lot of success in the first round on fake dribble handoffs where he would keep it and spend middle and then just the lane would be wide open for him. How he learned that.
"brandon clark" Discussed on The Bill Simmons Podcast
"This is kind of what I thought. Yeah, we're not overreacting to that. We're reacting with no suppress. And when we talk Celtics bucks later, there's little things where I go, well, if that happens, and you can do it with every one of these series, like you could sit there from the Memphis side and go, well, draymond got kicked out and jaren Jackson's on fire. That's like one of the best games I've ever seen from that dude. And kept you honest from three and Steph had foul trouble and that's a bad loss. But I know you can do that and find a way to argue whether it was a bad loss, not a big deal loss. There's always these little elements. I thought the most surprising part of it was that rebounding wise what looked like a bad strategy with the small lineups. I thought auto Porter fixed some of it. I thought loonies minutes are really good and then when they went small again, which led to the Brandon Clark inbound play that was brilliant by the emphasize of it because you're like, all right, they're undersized. They don't have any rim protection or anything. You're like, are they going to lose this game with a small lineup? The rebounding effort from adjustments from Golden State and from their smaller players. They ended up plus three in rebounds in this game. And I don't know if that's going to happen again. But I kind of feel that way that you do. Like I look at this series going, I think we're just going to have to buckle up for 7 of these. Not to do the thing where the board announcer just grabs the stat sheet and looks at some stats and rattles up some numbers and calls it a SportsCenter segment. But the stats are really similar in this game. They both had 16 offensive rebounds. Memphis made 16 threes Golden State made 14. Gold state had 31 assists Memphis had 26. I just felt like there were a lot of similarities all over the place. And the big wild card was the Jackson just having a game like that, which I got to say, this series is a great matchup for him. I think I could see that thing happening again. The thing from Memphis was just Brooks and bay in both sucked. 6 for 23 combined. And I thought those guys were going to be good in this series. Now, if you're looking at it for the warrior side, they survive a game without draymond. On the other hand, I thought their offense was pretty interesting without draymond, was something where was there stuff jumping out with the movement and when they had all those shooters out there and you couldn't just lay off draymond and pack the paint and do some of this stuff that teams do it. I didn't mind it. I also was surprised by the communicable minutes. I didn't think he was a liability for them. I thought he was okay and he was so athletic. I didn't mind having him out there. What did you see? I want to make a quick commitment point that could be lost because it feels insignificant. But here he is. He's not really part of the rotation, but you thought at some point because it's Golden State's going to have to make up some sort of front line on the fly here. Not adding another veteran center because they want to develop wiseman is a mistake. It just is. It's a front office that doesn't make sense. Yeah, go get like Robin Lopez anybody. I don't understand it and we'll see. Maybe it burns him. You know, I thought it burned Phoenix a little bit last year. I thought that was one of their problems and maybe that'll be the reason why Golden State can't pull this off. Meaning bigger picture stuff. I got a loose ball off a defensive board and draymond is like, give me the ball. Let me bring it up and comming immediately like points out. There's a trail defender on you. I've got it. I'll bring it up. And I know it's like a simple little thing, but there'd be so many other rookie like, hey, just go into Memphis on the road, man in a huge spot and give us some quality minutes. The fact that he was that aware, and I know some people would listen to this and think, that's so obvious, it's not the big video. I actually don't think it's that obvious. I think it was most guys who'd have been like, here you go, draymond. No, no, we're good. I got this. Let me bring this thing up. So he plays, which is crazy when he watched before the draft. He plays smart minutes. Maybe he doesn't hit his shots. You know, maybe he'll miss a but for the most part, I think he plays smart minutes and that's what I like about Kerr and some of the other coaches, obviously, I think Jenkins is great too, is that they're not afraid to tinker, where some guys in the playoffs are so afraid of doing it because then I think it welcomes in a lot of second guessing. I agree. Come inga additive. And I thought I was wondering what Golden State strategy would be going into this series. I actually thought we would see B Liza. We didn't. We didn't see tuscano Anderson either except for the tell tale end. It seemed like they were just going for speed and athleticism.

"A bless him, Brandon Clark, who's a little bit wispy in terms of covering the bigger guys. When they try to drive on him, that's just the reality of playing with that body type, but Tillman is tough to score on. And he's been a guy who's been in and out of the rotation over the last couple of years for Memphis for a variety of reasons, but it's just such a solid defender. It's cool to see him find a place in a series like this. Kind of as an anti towns specialist. I am a fan and I was waiting for them to play him and they finally threw him in and I was excited and then good things seem to happen. So I felt vindicated. Listen, this is set up for towns. He's at the right age where he should have a good playoff series experience if he's good. The kind of what we saw from Ingram today. Three home games. Crowd's going to be nuts. They seem to be healthy. This is set up. And Edwards, who can still have these moments where for about three minutes, you think he's the next Michael Jordan. You know? The next Jordan pool, you know? Or the next door to pool. Somebody named Jordan before we go, Brooklyn, Celtics, anything you're expecting tomorrow night, game three or game two. Oh, good question. I don't know. I honestly have no idea what to expect from that series. There's not a lot of like match up play that can be done unless you're just exploiting Brooklyn's smaller defenders. I'm not sure what the evolution of that series looks like. But I'm fascinated to find out. I mean, that was as turkey. The Drummond thing would be the one thing where I wonder if they punt on him the same way Memphis punted on Adams today. Just excise him from the rotation. Yeah, do you play him for four minutes? And then we just don't see him again. That wouldn't surprise me because that small lineup, I thought this Celtics had trouble with no matter who the combination was. That was when it seemed like Brooklyn we got going. So you think we'll see more Truman? I mean, I wouldn't expect him to be totally gone. Some of it is as simple as when you put these small lineups in front of teams like the Celtics for too long. They.

"To put him on cat. It'll be on the bench three minutes into the first quarter and file trouble. If you go there and Brandon Clark was pretty good off the bench, but he's so small. I don't know. You just need more out of it. He just needs to be better. And I think he will be. I will say this. I am preemptively, not that I'm trying to skip past game two of this series, but I am preemptively excited for that Minnesota crown. In game three, back there. Loud against the clippers and the plan. Yeah. Yeah, no one they got one of these on the road. Oh boy, they are going to be ready to go. So one of the things to watch too is three point attempts in this series. We know the wolves put up a lot of them 41 for Minnesota 27 for the grizzlies and the grizzlies only shot at 26%. That's the difference in this game. Can the grizzlies do what they need to do to not necessarily get the attempts down for the wolves because you know they're going to shoot them, but get that percentage to come down a bit and then they need to knock in a few more of their own. We'll see what they can do there. Also, the fowls in this game were a factor. I mean, look at how many guys got into foul trouble. We'll see both of these teams play very aggressive defensively, but there were a lot of 32 fouls for the wolves and in 24 for their grizzlies. This was a physical game. And this was not a tightly officiated game. It was just there was a lot of fun. There was a lot of sloppy stuff to dumb stuff, where it's like reaching on guys 40 feet from the basket and things like that. If you're in Minnesota, you're thinking D'angelo Russell two for 11, sure some of the other guys might cool off, but delo can shoot much better than that too. So maybe there is some sustainability there. I think we both had grizzlies in either 5 or 6, does the game one outcome change your prediction on that? Yeah, I don't think it'll probably go 6 now. I tend to think when the road team wins. One, they'll get at least one more at home. So staying with Memphis though. Yeah, I'm still going to say them. Okay. And I don't think they'll overreact too much. But not that Minnesota has a tunnel playoff experience, but young team, you know, let's see. Minnesota gets up to.

So then you would have taken the door to 15. Yeah. I would have taken Cody Martin at 16, you would have taken classes like 17. Okay. And now we're back at 18 and I'm up. Yeah. I'm gonna go grant Williams. Great Williams is a favorite of both of ours. Grant Williams is still a great positional defender who can play like that four or 5 role. The thing with grant this year is he's shooting 45% from three. If you will continues, he's a definite playoff player like definitely really useful guy if he's going to keep shooting like that. I don't know if he will, but I'm intrigued enough by the shooting jump that I will go grant Williams here. I think this is. Man. You know what? I'm actually gonna contradict myself and really the two players I think about here are probably our brand Clark and naz Reid. And. Man. I think just for the shooting, I probably go Nas, like I know I know Clark shot the ball really well. His rookie year has been not only hasn't shot as well, but has also been a pretty reluctant shooter, which is a pretty big deal for my evaluation. So I think that I would go yeah, I think I would go not as read here at 19. Do you hate that? I do, but like I also like Nazareth. I like them, I like them pre draft. I think I had them like as the top 35 guy. Yeah, I am going to go and see her little here. I think he's shown enough in terms of like energy activity. There's enough shooting upside there. The guys that we did not pick, there were highest on my board. Brandon Clark, chuma okiki, Nikhil Alexander walker, who's just been so inefficient in such a gunner like throughout his career so far that I think it's just kind of hard to project that..

"Takeaway? Yes. He just made every play down the stretch and over time for the grizzlies if he didn't score himself, he was setting somebody up, just absolutely dominant game 33.6 rebounds 8 assists for me also at a steal and a block, get to the freezer line 12 times, just a day. He is so good. Yeah, he absolutely is. A little terrifying. Like, I would be scared if I was a fan of the grizzlies. Just because he lands so violently. It's like it reminds me of the way Derrick Rose used to land and we all know what happened there, but hopefully John maram will avoid that kind of fate down the line. But the thing that stood out here Brandon Clark got back into the grizzlies rotation. He hasn't been in the rotations I air Williams are rookie first rounder was out, did not play in this game and Brandon Clark 8 of 11 for 20 points in this one also at 9 rebounds. 5 on the offensive glass. He has not been good, really since late in his rookie year. He started to have some struggles that year did not have a good sophomore year. This year got off to a bad start to the point he has not been in the rotation. They've been playing Williams over him, and Xavier Tillman, as well. So we're going to see what becomes of this with Brandon Clark, did he win a rollback here? Is he going to get consistent minutes? But good to see him get on track off the Memphis. 29? You'll take that any day. Let's jump over to the bulls and the nets. Another one that I thought was interesting. And guys, we're bouncing around a few if you key games here in this one. But bulls and nets, the bulls win one 18 to 95, the nets had been on a nice win streak, but they do drop to 7 and four with this one. So, I mean, the nets were seen as kind of the big bad in the Eastern Conference. The team that everybody was projecting was going to make it out of the east. The bulls, some people weren't sure what to make of them. If things were really going to click, if the defense was going to be able to keep up with their own production..

I liked his defense a lot last year. You so mobile. Like i in my craziest optimus brain on draft night. When they took him i was like. Okay yeah best. Case scenario like he could be a really talented offensive player like a game breaking offense player if he gets there like absolute best case scenario scher not in my wildest dreams.

Why nobody wants to call it stalking
"See you may have missed the details of this story unless you spend a lot of time online the young woman an instagram influence her named Bianca Devon's was murdered in Utica New York this this week. Please tell me that they believe that the suspect left this graffiti message on the ground saying may you never forget me photos. We're taking her and we're posted on social media or chat platforms. They were posted on there which sled people to become concern into contact. The Police Bianco was allegedly killed by Brandon Clark a man she had met online and that's also where her murder was posted in gruesome fashion and when the incident was first reported because of some of those details it was reported that she was stocked and stocking is an interesting and potentially accurate term for what allegedly happened but not according to police one of the other rumors were hearing is that there was a stocking incident a police spokesperson said she met with him willingly and that raises an interesting question if the victim met with her killer willingly does that mean it can't be stocking. How do we define that kind of crime? The story of Bianca's murder landed the same day as a threat on twitter which asked victims to share their experiences with their stockers. You'll probably not be shocked to hear that. Many of them had in fact met with their stockers willingly at some point most of them were sharing stories like that very vaguely and for the first time so what qualifies an incident the kind of incident that we clearly know can and does and in murder as stocking what options do victims have in. How are these crimes treated when they are reported if they are reported and what are the signs that all of us please most of all should be recognizing to help stalking victims before we all learn their story for the first time a really really ugly way? I'm Jordan Heath Rawlings and this is the big story. Julie loaned is an activist and educator around sexual violence and criminal harassment. She is also the creator of a project called outside of the shadows a project on criminal harassment in Canada so the first thing I want to ask you <hes> because of the incredibly disturbing story that made the rounds this week is when you see a a story like the one out of New York that I just described. What's the first thing that goes through your head a someone who lives this everyday well for me? The reason why this story was so upsetting setting was because it combined to other things that I have deep personal and professional connection to which is stalking criminal harassment and in cells and men's rights activists and kind of misogynous activists online and so to see both of those pieces come together. <hes> is really horrifying. What do you think happens in the media in sort of the hours and days after a story like this breaks because there's a ton of discussion around ended and immediately come sort of editorials and the discussion of cells and etc.? I'm really tired of people having hot takes about in cells or hot takes about even on long island stocking as though this is a new phenomenon and then it very quickly becomes sensationalized very quickly has yeah all of these sort of think pieces about it. We're talking about something as old as time. The assumption that women can't be trusted the assumption that women are telling you that they want something in but in fact they just want to be friends that women are using you that women are shifty. I mean these are like imbued. In most religious texts for example right like this is an old story and when it comes to stocking this is also something that women have experiencing for a very. Very Long Time and there's this real trend lately to act as though there's been some sort of uptaken it when in fact we know that technology apps different kinds of of things that are coming out are just new tools for an old form of violence and and most people who are being stalked even when most of it is online. They're still a kind of hurrell component to it. They're still someone following them physically showing up at their house showing up at their place of work and so I get really frustrated when people act look like Oh my God like people the Internet is like no. It's just another tool that we've given soccer's to us but the stuff has been going on forever. So why don't you lay out what is covered by stocking because this is one of the things things that that was the case in point in this recent story is that the the woman who was murdered had had a relationship with the alleged killer and maybe that means it wasn't stocking after all because the initial story said it was first of all. It's really really important for folks to know that the vast majority of victims of stalking are women. The vast majority of stockers are men even when the victim itself is a man men are more likely to be stopped by a man than by a woman and women are far more likely to be stopped by someone that they know and so so the idea that it can't be stocking if someone that you consented to meet with date sleep with Mary is absolutely false. Criminal harassment in Canada is an umbrella term that covers a whole array of behavior but the root of it is repeated an unwanted monitoring of some way shape or form of both the person the person's whereabouts so monitoring their home their place of work or monitoring folks around them so trying badgering their friends and family family to find out where that person is and the goal is really to that surveillance that monitoring that idea that you can't take a breath take a step without me knowing where you are and without you knowing that I'm watching you. How does that start in a typical typical case without asking you to point to one oftentimes especially when the two people know each other it starts with some semblance of conflict in that could be someone breaks up with you? Someone rejects you you know maybe they fired you from their place of work so there's really some semblance of a of a break in some way shape or form where the person says even politely. This isn't working out. You know I think we should go separate ways and then that person just doesn't let it go oftentimes it can also be in the in the context of I. I have a crush on this person. I really like this person and they're being nice to me and I'm taking it is an indication that they're interested in me and so I'm going to escalate the behavior oftentimes like intimate partner violence for example starts in a seemingly kind of small way where the person might think am. I reading too much into this. Maybe they just happened to be there. Maybe they're just really invested in my social media content and that's why they like all my posts in there the first person to comment on my photos and then oftentimes it's slowly escalates from there which is what contributes to the victim feeling. Maybe I'm just being dramatic and like this person's just being nice or maybe they're just awkward and I'm reading too much into it and oftentimes by the time they realize the full breadth of what's going on. It's actually been going on significantly AH longer than they thought well one of the other reasons we wanted to talk to you is because there was a huge threat on twitter this week that I think <hes> probably was not surprising at all to a lot of people and then extremely surprising to some can you tell me about it and maybe sort of read me the first post and a couple couple of examples so a twitter user named Michelle Guido asked women dear women. If you are comfortable please share your stalker stories below on this thread the idea that this is rare needs to stop re tweet to help spread awareness enough jeff enough and similar to the METOO Hashtag similar to been raped never reported hashtag women flooded the thread with their stories and what was so interesting to me but devastating was how. How tweet after tweet after tweet was a classic case of stocking both from an emotional standpoint but also from a criminal standpoint like these are things that meet the legal threshold in this country anyway and women had imbued self-doubt out into the tweet itself so this idea of I don't know if this is really considered stalking but I had this guy in high school or I don't know if this really counts and that is so heartbreaking to me but so unbelievably common that women have these experiences that until someone puts a label on it? You hadn't really thought of it in that light you just thought this kind of crap and thing that happened to you in high school or maybe this weird experience you had at this particular job and so oftentimes it's only in hearing other people's stories that they start to kind of put the pieces pieces together and realize why have every right to have released wrong feelings about the experience because it really was a criminal act. The you mentioned been raped never reported how often is stalking reported like the incidents described in in that thread stalking like all forms of gender-based violence in this country is incredibly under reported. It's oftentimes reported in the context of other crimes so this person vandalize my home which means they were watching my home home which means a criminal harassment charges added on even when you're looking at policing criminal harassment charges rarely stand on their own. They're oftentimes attached to an intimate partner violence charge show you know battery and stocking fucking vandalizing something stocking impersonation hockey into their computer like all of those kinds of things so it's oftentimes that's how women will sort of tell that story and again in Canada because it's referred to as criminal harassment and not stalking oftentimes women. I don't even know what criminal harassment is. I don't even know what the threshold is so they just sort of tell the story and if you're lucky you have a detective or a nine one one dispatcher who can read between the lines and figure out okay. This is actually what the root of what's happening here but it's really often seen as sort of adjacent to a more serious crime and that's something that I am personally trying to advocate to change is that criminal harassment in and of itself is a form of terrorists wrestler terrorizing another human being. It's psychologically damaging and I don't need to and I shouldn't have to physically assault you for that criminal harassment to be taken seriously. What is the threshold for people who don't know where might have a story that they questioned whether or not it reaches up while I wish I could tell you what the threshold is but it's very vague in the criminal code and so oftentimes it really is up to the nine one one dispatch or the detective? That's working on your case to see the tear in your is a case in in Montreal right now with Sue Montgomery who's the mayor of one of the outlying verbs in Montreal who by her definition has been stocked by man for over twenty years he started stalking her when she was a journalist and then when she became elected he had other opportunities to Harasser just this month the judge concluded that what he was doing absolutely was stocking absolutely was criminal harassment but because sued did not that show fear when she confronted him and there's video evidence of her confronting him at one of her events because she did not look afraid it did not meet the threshold of criminal harassment what yeah that's insane. It's absolutely insane and it enrages. You just need to my core. Because what are women supposed to do if I show that I'm upset visibly then I'm dismissed as an unreliable witness. I'm dismisses hysterical. I'm dismisses like Oh my God like get over yourself and then additionally in this culture that we're in right now so much of the response around me to women just kind of stand up for themselves. These men don't know what they're doing. They're not reading your signals. There's miscommunication unless you put your foot down. How is he gonNA know okay cool? Put My foot down and now you're saying well. I didn't look. Look scared and being scared is the threshold that is not okay like what are women supposed to do like who is the right person to be taken seriously when it comes to criminal harassment and so I what happened to sue is horrifying <unk> horrifying but it's incredibly common and so- criminal harassment is on one case you know repeated on wanted all of those kinds of things contact contact with your family surveillance but you also need to meet this criteria of showing fear and reasonably had a reason to be afraid of this person will who decides that and if it's a judge what are they using to decide that oftentimes some pretty archaic stereotypes of what steer looks like particularly early in women and so you have women were going through the process where putting themselves out there and are being shut down by the legal system because you just didn't look afraid enough like we should be outraged that you mentioned a few minutes ago that it <hes> It depends on whether or not you get a good detective who understands it. How much education is they're? They're left to be done in how how variable I guess is the police response when this is reported the police response to gender-based violence writ large is horrifying. It's terrible I mean I it's just like it makes me inarticulate like it just makes me so angry about the response in general but when it comes to criminal harassment in my case like personally I've contacted police on three separate occasions for Chris Three separate people who were harassing me in a way that met the criminal code in all three cases the police absolutely believed it was happening but they didn't really do anything about it and so you know okay on the surface great you can see you know here.
