"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.

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.
How Joel Embiid Became An MVP Contender
"Also derek. Last season ended in pretty disappointing. Fashion for philadelphia. That'll do it. The boston celtics move on by defeating the seventy sixers. Four games to nothing. The first ever went wrong in that first round against boston for embiid and the sixers. I think a bunch of things went wrong. First of all. You can't start without saying this. Ben simmons zone. Outside of that sort of what went wrong was wrong with the sixers all year. The team didn't fit well yet. Al horford and josh richardson. Who were tough it's around a post op center and embiid. Richardson shooting for three ended out. They didn't have a real reliable second often times during the series alec. Burks was your secondary options on offense recipe. Brad stevens and the celtics and bead romeo leg for the rookie thinking about double vacates birds. Who can't make them pay. So there is a lot of mistakes that were made roster building and there were missing. Simmons isn't it was a tough series for sure. Can you remind us what the narrative was after that first round exits surrounding joel embiid and his performance. Yeah it was fascinating because on one hand when they came back into the bubble they had spent pretty much those months in between working with you all to get better at handling dull teams and it came out in the bubble in orlando during the seeding games and some of that had started to show and he looked like he was handling double teams better and he came out against the celtics. And i think that he converted back a little bit in terms of struggling with the double team and bead backing down ties gordon hayward on the help and they come up with the steel but he was dominant as an individual score. That was locked off and be. Did it again. Safe focused joel. Fb five of seven. Give him thirteen of his team's thirty one. We'll lifesaver on that. So i think a lot of people looked at you made steps. He did most of what he could do individually. He just didn't have enough help around him. Well that disappointing end to a long season led to a number of changes within the sixers organization. Can you take us through. Some of the moves that philly made in the off season and how they related to unlocking the better performances from joel. Embiid is off the front office. Obviously brought daryl morey To work above. Elton brand and then they brought in doc rivers replace brett brown and then you had some pretty key addition to traded al horford for essentially danny green. And then josh. Richardson for steph curry. And i think those two editions have been pretty big with joel. Because i think if you look either trade you'd say the sixers got the lesser talent but the fit and just having to players in curry and green. Who the other team can't leave has been huge for. Joel shoe autom- double wall and pass. And you miss accomplish you. Miss a lot of shots You just straightening and then you start thinking of all you gotta do everything by yourself. 'cause everybody's not made the shots. Richardson horford they were not only inconsistent shooting. If they are unwilling shooters and they'd hesitate any office. Which is kinda come grinding down to a halt not only is curry making his shots and all these green making his permanent shots. But the ball is moving around the perimeter. Much quicker than it was. So there's more consequential doubling joel embiid than there ever has been monarch got a lot of assists but Ogle gets one us open. Invite double or triple team has a lot of hockey else's shake milton hinton to downtown ten points and ten minutes off the bench make no mistake that play which about drawing the double and then the ball moving east gotta be willing to be content. That the ball's the swing opposite and he's gonna creative for shots teams are now left with a real choice whereas before i think the whole strategy just send you all need help and disguise it a little bit senate in different locations but if you send it frequently enough you're going to confuse joel embiid or the sixers aren't going to have the talent or the players to make him pay. I think that's changed now.

Do the Warriors need Kevin Durant to beat the Blazers?
"Before going down with this strain right calf in game five of their series against the rockets. K D was averaging thirty four points in thirty nine minutes per game. The warriors were able to take care of the rockets and six about Katie the Richard. They need him to come back quickly to win this series against the blaze. No. And I'll say. With with the warriors only had to play good basketball. Right. And they could beat everyone else without him. They have to play great basketball, and they are capable of playing great basketball. So they don't need him. But the level of focus that they have to play with and their room for error, obviously Rauscher substantially, but if the warriors played great basketball, even without Katie they can still win a championship. I feel like with Steph smiling like you you kinda saw him. Look, they he knows that they need K D. But there was a little rice smile on steps face when he was doing what he was doing in Houston. Yeah. I mean, I remember talking to staff the first year that Kevin Durant got there. And there was a pride to him that he doesn't like to show us. Sometimes there's a, you know, if they didn't get Kevin Durant. Like, she still believes that he can go and be the guy that wants Seventy-three game without Kevin Durant. So I I think they're in this place now where they they believe they can beat the blazers. I think they would have a harder time in the finals if they get past Portland because they won't have the best player on the court. Right, right. If you're John. Janas or choi- if they don't get to if they get to the finals? I don't think they have the best player in the court and in years. Do you think he's do you think why this better than Hawaii? What I'll say this. I'll say that Steph before Katie got their one-two MVP. Right. And then he took a step back because Kevin Durant was so great. So I'm not ready to say that camping Durant off that team that Steph isn't a top two or top three player. Like you saw what he did in that second hand he had his worst half ever followed up by his best happy ever. So that lets you know that there's a lot more in their him and Claire both in their prime. Right. I agree. It's close clear both in their probably this series, though comes down to whether or not the warriors back court can stop the trailblazers back, quite right. And when we say words backwards. I don't mean. Stephan Klay, trying to stop Damian CJ. I mean, Andrea thank Klay matching up with CJ. Dave. And that is historically been a tough match-up for those. Yeah. No, it's going to be a great match up. I think the fact that both of these teams are banged up. Right. I think you've gotta give both of these teams a credit for being so greedy. So tough not worried about their team who's not healthy. We're just going to go out there and play our best basketball. And I think as a compliment to them the these two teams have two of the three top scoring back courts in the NBA warriors were second and the blazers were third Houston was number one. With James harden having this crazy season with that said when you encompass everything offense defense, the whole thing. How close are these two backwards? I think I still give the warriors. Yeah. Right. Because I'm I'm also including Andre Goodall in that. Because I I he he does take that defensive match up when they go against CJ it. I mean, it's it's closed. They've narrowed the gap, but you know, Klay Thompson as a two way player. I don't think there's anybody on the blazers who could match what he does Andrei as two way player.

"That's fine. Damian the the question is do I believe what he is saying do I do. I agree with what he's saying is different. Okay. Okay. I don't agree. I don't why he believes it. Sure that he believes that. I think going into this fight. And the reason why it's true is because they are playing them and not the Denver Nuggets. So they're a better team than Denver Nuggets in the better team has a better chance of winning hoop emoji. All right. Ben Simmons hundred sixteen shot attempts this season of those one hundred sixteen only three were jump shots. All which he missed the court in his second spectrum. Here's what Simmons said yesterday about the need to develop his shot. Then you said you wanted to take your game forward. How much do you think taking more jump shots or even taking shots from the perimeter is important to improving your game? It's important. This is very important. How you going to work on it repetition? Okay. His that happened this year. And it doesn't you took five shots last night. Don't do you think in this situation with this team. And who you are you need more than five shots in some of them have to be from the perimeter. Yeah. I love it up were grill. It is Ben Simmons saying it's important to him to develop his shot BS or real talk cards up. Okay. We all agree one hundred. Yeah. Of course, that's gotta be a blurred. He believes it is that. No, I go. Go ahead. Look, I mean, I'm listening to that reporter grill, and that's good job by what I mean, I mean. that's reporting one on one right there. Yeah. I mean, Ben, you know, that's how you not say next question. Right. Like Russell Westbrook would have been like next question. Good for Ben, absolutely. Obviously, it's important. He knows it's important. The question is this is going to work on it enough. And is it actually we actually see a different, and I think free-throw percentage, right? I think she needs to become a better free throw like, and I doubt that is under control versus three point shots. And you might never have that part of your game. But if you can improve your free throw percentage to me, then he can post up more than he can post up more. If he gets out he goes into he can not down eight out of eleven right. He can get knocked down seven out of ten if he can do that. Then he can go into the post against smaller guys. And then I think that's step one. The jump shot thing should be step to show. How comfortable does he need to be one thing is to do it in practice. Right. Yeah. How comfortable does he need to be to be able to do that in a game. Which at some point is going to be very necessary. It's LeBron right career. Lebron didn't have a jump shot the people respected the Spurs exploited that in the finals and LeBron went to work to all they need to do is respect it. And it takes years to do that. And like, you know, you try not to talk about yourself. But I shop more threes my second year than I did my first because I was like screw this. I'm just to. Live with my head down. But then my third year. Larry drew worked with me every day. And he was like, Richard. You gotta shoot shoot won a game. She won a game. If you make it shoot another one. If you don't that's fine. But every game you go into the game shoot one three because then that gets your body and your mind into that mindset. But if you never shoot you never look at the rim, then you'll never have that mindset. But Larry drew was the first person and in that year, I shot thirty five percent. And then I got that confidence in changed my game completely. But a lot of it is just like having that confidence and saying, okay, every I don't care if I go over eighty two right? I'm going to shoot one every game. Just get into that mentality of taking these shots. All right. Let's move on. Eric Bledsoe will match up with Kyle Lowry, very often in Eastern Conference finals when asked about the matchup lead show was very complimentary of his counterpart, take a listen..

"We got him here. So I up trailblazers got past the nuggets in seven games and Damian Lillard thinks warriors might be a better matchup for his team. Here's Dame talking about the different match of yesterday. Let's take a listen. We mentioned pretty well with them. I think are our lives series and guys like Paul Millsap and Yokich, you know, they were he was bodies any pain. They gave us a lot of trouble on the glass, and they gave us a lot of trouble with their size. And I think what go to state is much more of a parameter oriented chain not going to do a lot of screening and cutting shooting a lot of threes and stuff like that. Not really throwing the ball on the block and stuff like that. So I think it's a much better matchup for for us as far as personnel. So Dame says the warriors are a better personnel matchup than the nuggets. Bs a real talk cards up. Yeah, we're Bomo. What you're going to one hundred hundred ten why percent that was the belief of of Damian Lillard right there. That's what I leave. That's not reality. That's just reality. That is his reality. And I respect that they're in the Western Conference finals after getting killed last year in the first he worked every single day in had that focus. Right. Hey, and we member CJ, I'm trying Jennifer. I'm with you. Right. So so look my thing is this if that's your belief, and you believe that a hundred percent, and look you want to know why? They're better matchup. Yeah. Because they're playing them. Or is that whole, you know, what this is this is inception. Basically movie would Li Notre to Capri were make believe something if planted something in someone's brain plan. Look, Damian Lillard has been amazing to your point. Like, there's no doubt and CJ. They've been fantastic. But if look if Kevin Durant of the warriors never existed, the warriors would still be the favorite to win the championship. And clearly still be the favorite to win the series..

I think he's still the guy that you want on that team because it makes everything else easier for everyone else. But I don't think Tobias Harris makes things easier for the rest of that core going into the playoffs. I think we might have said the opposite right because during the regular season it felt like Tobias had kind of a leg up. Yeah. And it just because of his shooting and the way that he could fit in around Benjamin's Joel Embiid, but the wage Butler played in the playoffs he delivered. I you know, quite letter was easily the best player on the court and that series. I could make an argument the Jimmy Butler was a better player than anyone else. Besides sold Leonard, right. Joel Embiid should be that guy. But he was hurt for the series. Was you know, clearly he needs to get into into better shape. Things. Injuries helped hurt him in also because he wasn't in shape, and then you can't train because your injuries or at but Jimmy Butler carried them delivered. And I think when they go forward like you need more of that under seems to be relationship with him in Joel Embiid devolve. I don't think it was a great relationship at first I think it took a while for them to find their footing, but this sort of bonded over their competitiveness. Them are crazy competitor. No. And that's the best thing that you want from young crew core of guys you want someone that pushing them this challenging them that is making them take that next step, and I love to buy shares. I think to buy it's going to get a great contract. I think he could be great on another team. But I think if you had to pick between which guy you're going to keep I think Jimmy Butler hands down is the right answer. All right. Let's shift our attention back to the NBA draft lottery. It'll be held tonight in Chicago. The Knicks are tied with the Cavs and sons for the highest odds of securing the one on which we all do. Ramona, how valuable with the number one pick be as a trait chip, and it'd be in the Knicks best interest to trades ions draft rights. No, okay. Don't as I just depends. Like, I look at it as who comes in free agency. I know I can tell you. I having talked to the Knicks their number one priority is right now getting the number one pick Zion will how can that a priority?.

"Senior writer inside a Ramona Shelburne in two thousand sixteen finals champ, Richard Jefferson, coming up Damian Lillard said the warriors without Katie or better matchup for the blazers? Then the nuggets words that BS or real talk. We'll find out in a few moments but first. We'll start with the big news out of Philly. Seventy Sixers managing partner. Josh Harris told angel wards now ski that head coach Brett Brown will be back on the bench next season. Also reports that Harris Brown and Sixers GM Elton brand had a lengthy meeting on Monday that mostly centered on discussions about the franchise plans for the offseason. Here's Joel Embiid yesterday on coach Brown. I just thought it was both been he's he's done a fantastic job. I'll think he should have anything to worry about. He's he's an amazing coach about a person and unite obviously, I got a lot of love phone, and you know, if there was someone to blame I'll main put it all on me. So Richard is the smart move for them is this a smart move for them, despite the fact in beads endorsements here, and there was speculation. Obviously that Embiid with the player most unhappy with Brown's what? No. And that's what I like about. This like Embiid has even though there's been some up and down. I think he's shown maturity in this postseason. I love the fact that he's like know this wasn't the coach. This was me. This was me being sick. This was not stepping up. Coach's done a great job. And I think as a leader, you know, you hear so many things about franchises and coaches and best players. So when your best player steps up and says, no I need to play better. And I think coach did a great job. I think that shows a lot of maturity Ramona, let me ask you just but there was a lot of scuttle. But that Embiid was maybe not so happy with Brett Brown was that maybe the case in maybe he realized okay? You know, what Brett has shown me that he can take up for me. Right. When Joel maybe had some moments in the playoffs where he didn't play. So well, he was sick BRIC Brown stood up tall for Joel Embiid. Do you think that maybe played a factor? That's always stood up tall for John. And I think I think Joel recognize. Is that because both of them have been there throughout the entire process. Right. Like they've they've seen this thing from beginning to end. And I think Joel has a lot of loyalty for Brett. I don't know that the scuttlebutt was surely that Embiid wanted him gone like I think it was a general organizational issue, and some of that was was heightened when the owner came out and said, if we you know, we're expecting to have a better playoff run this year. But from what I'm told Brett Brown and the owner Josh Harris had I had conversations throughout the season where Bret felt very comfortable in that last series against the Toronto. Raptors about his position now that that's not to say that if they would have lost to the Brooklyn nets in the first round things would have been all rosy. But he he had a reasonable level of confidence in that series. So I don't think it did come down to game seven. And I also think that you you can't really discount the idea that when Monty Williams took the Phoenix Suns job, the one guy that you. There was an expectation that maybe he would be the guy in line to get. It was no longer there. Right. So why would you punt on Brett Brown after everything? He's taken this franchise through when the guy that you could reasonably expect to be a successor or even just look at the field. He was out there for them to go get who's better than Brett Brown. I mean Brett bound might be a top ten MBA coach. Yeah. This team has didn't take the jump that. They wanted to this year. But it's also Joel twenty five and Ben Simmons twenty two agree. They lost in game seven on a crazy shot right to one of the top five players the MBA..

We had a couple of coaching headlines come our way on Monday night shot from Kawhi Leonard Waterford Toronto ended the season for the Sixers. And that's how it sounded on ninety seven five the fanatic in Philly. A loss in game seven at the buzzer on a ball danced around the rim. A handful of times it's not gonna cost Brett Brown. His job. Team managing partner. Josh Harris, telling ESPN daydream was Monday night that Brett Brown will be back on the bench next season for his seven season Harris saying he eliminated any doubt in a lengthy meeting with Brown and general manager Elton brand on Monday Harris saying it mainly centered on discussions about the franchises plans for the Aussies earlier on ESPN radio or Myron medcalf says there's nothing guaranteeing a full seven season for Brett Brown. This is the NBA. Yes, he's going to be the coach through the draft. Yes. He's going to be the coast through free agency. Yes, he'll be the coach through training camp. But you, and I both know Freddie, that if this team gets off to a terrible start in the first fifteen to twenty games of the twenty nineteen twenty twenty season. Mr Brown is going to have to find another place of employment. So for me, this is your safe through the summer because this is a vital summer and we need stability. It says nothing to me about whether or not he's gonna survive next season. Brad brown. Staying in Philly for now. John B line is not staying in. Ann Arbor reliant is leaving Michigan. And adding to the NBA where he's taking over as the new coach at the Cleveland Cavaliers? He's the winningest coach in the history of the Michigan program para final four appearances in his twelve years there twenty thirteen in two thousand eighteen now he takes over a rebuilding project in Cleveland getting a five year deal with the Cavs ESPN analyst, Dan dockage, I think that if I'm the Cavs. I would much rather have HIV line in some. I don't know guy. That's never really done a whole lot. Now, there's not a lot of guys in college that you can go to the NBA and all that kind of stuff but billions one of. I mean, here's a great temperament. My son played form his great temperament with Clair's ended development. The the rules of the game aren't gonna hurt his style at all because rules are different very different. But I think it's a great gift for the Cavaliers? But as you well know, you guys will get some players if you don't that's a bad roster and get some players, if you if you're gonna make this work, no matter who the coaches, Dan with that being said, you know, this is a big summer. A lot of free agency conversation how excited a player's going to be in the NBA to play for a coach while he's had a lot of success. It's been in college. Yeah. It's interesting. I think that I can that is change a little bit. A lot of players were always talking about you got playing league for me to play with you. But I think I think people have seen that's going to differ way. Look, let's be honest. If money talks if the Cavaliers have more money than somebody else, they're to get who they want. But also city talks, and I couldn't personally I mean, I I'm a big fan of Cleveland. I love going there when I was coaching bowling green is just two hours away. But if I'm twenty two years old, I got a pocket full of cash for twenty five years old. I got full cash. I don't know that Cleveland would be a destination. No matter who the coaches unless I'm Brian. I'm from there. So, you know, the guys that are truly going to make a difference probably gonna go to New York probably going to go to LA probably gonna go to those cities, regardless. But I'll say this as much as coaching can make a difference in the NBA, which you can so John we'll make that difference. He he will. He is a very good basketball coach on all sides. Offense defense transition. He is a perfect to handle all ages, older younger or whatever. But come on. You got you got to have guys aging. Kevin love a hopefully for him developing Colin section, and then who knows what you got in the middle between Tristan Thompson, and and the rest, and then you gotta hope you win the lottery you throw throw Zion with those guys maybe you got something. But man, it ain't like like I remember when his was going to go to the Cavaliers he desperately. All you wanna do is talk to LeBron James and see what the Brown James was thinking. Lebron his people wouldn't talk to them. There's no Brown there. And you know, what if you can come in the same time as I'm Williamson be really good thing for it'd be leading Cleveland is this a risk worth taking when you're a guy who's got an eight twenty nine to four sixty eight college record has been transformative at Michigan and your sixty six for John. I think it's a absolute win win. I mean, you know, sixty six years old, he's leaving comfort sixty six five years. Let's say six seven eight million year cost of living Cleveland's not bad. If you're going to do it. You do it. Now. That's it. Right. I mean, you're not gonna be offered this five years from now. So I I like it for both. I really do. I think John made the only choice that he could make it. In fact, he was going to leave. Now, if he wasn't going to leave if he was married to Michigan. Then you obviously, don't even entertain it. But if you're thinking about it, and you sixty six five year deal. Let's go. John B lie gets a five year deal to leave in Auburn head to Cleveland. And yes, it was a headline about an NBA coaching higher. But our Stephen a Smith says. And you got job Balon head coach for the Michigan. Wolverines is a new head coach for the Cleveland. Cavaliers, no problem there. It's news. Here's my point. What the hell is the segment about it for who cares? I'm going to get Zion. Williamson with the draft tomorrow that might be different. But since you announced this before we know whether or not the Cleveland Cavaliers going to have the number one overall picks which undoubtedly is going to be I on Winston and the upcoming NBA draft who gives a damn about the Cleveland Cavaliers LeBron's not there anymore. Kevin loved should be on his way out. Don't taught you that man by keeping them in Cleveland, son someplace where he could compete for championship. He's a damn good player who the hell out this day. A damn about Cleveland. Tom lace? Bravo. Bravo. It's so touching. I mean. Good. Good. Good. Good fine. I'm sorry Cleveland. The bronze not there anymore. No one cares about you right now. No, no, no your day has come and gone. Let's get Zion, and we will know more about whereas I on Williamson will be landing by the end of Tuesday evening. Cavs Knicks sons all going with the highest percentage of landing the number one pick. They each have a fourteen percent chance. Bulls are next at twelve and a half percent. Hawks out the fifth.

He's not he's he's going to either take the Lakers job or probably hold onto something else. He's not gonna take somebody else until the LeBron thing is figured out. This is gig money Williams on the list for Phoenix. If Brett Brown gets fired in Philadelphia, he's on that list. So if you want money Williams like you'd be really want him if he's your guy. He's your guy. You gotta put the glogau now in figured out. And so if the Lakers, you know, you remember when Bayram is interviewing environment headlight twenty four interviews like every every day. They just bring Byron back for another conversation. You don't have time to silly to do that. So if eventually, Tim Harris is gonna have to talk to him, and you want all the, you know, Joey and Jesse Boston the scouting department all these you need to get that done. So that everybody can sign off on him at once. So. Absolutely indicates that they are serious, and it doesn't necessarily mean they're gonna hire him right away. But they understand other people want money Williams to Michael do, you know him at all. Yeah. You can't. You can't meet or have a nice guy. Head of your coaching staff or meet a nicer person. This guy y'all must doesn't seem real. He's so nice so respected by everybody. He's the real deal. He was one of clay's coaches on team USA, right? Yeah. Some point. He was a head coach Gregg Popovich tree. And LeBron knows USA. Everybody knows what the if you meet Monty Williams, and you don't like or respect on Meyer having an admiration for Monte Williamson. You'd better check yourself some wrong with you. Yeah. And of course, for people that don't know money is right now in assistant coach in Philadelphia, but his life was derail three or four years ago by just a horrific accident he Monty and his wife have four children and his wife was killed in a car crash drunk driver and all the children survived. So money is raising this family that he had started with his wife on his own. And he is in charge of all these matter of fact, I think they have five children and the kind of guy is doing her memorial service. He told everybody else feel better he told the audience. Or the mourners? Listen, this isn't just a Bob me and my family, and my wife think about the other family to and what they're going through how about that. All right. So Michael, you say he is a very nice guy in that. If you mean money, and you don't like them, then there's something wrong with you does that work for an NBA coach. Can you be a nice guy and still be tough? Yeah. Definitely Pat rallies rally was Gregg Popovich is people talk who Popovich and private his players say he's the nicest person. Yeah..
Monty Williams the Suns' Top Target for Coach - Where does that leave the Lakers?
"Williams manned up going to Phoenix. Which would which would now put the Lakers coaching search back at three if kids in the mix, it would be either Tyronn Lue whose scheduled interview again tomorrow Juwan Howard who scheduled interview later in the week or kid if Monte goes to Phoenix or as Greg suggested he could also get the job in Philadelphia if they fire Brett Brown, but it appears Brett Brown is on the verge of getting them to the. Second round, by the way to let's not bury the lead on something. This interview was conducted by rob Pelinka and Kurt Rambus, which would lead you. I've been telling people is that who's do. I I understand that. But I'm saying it leads you to believe that part of this. Vacuum isn't just being taken up the power. Vacuum isn't just being sucked up by rob Pelinka. Kurt Rambis is putting himself in a position to gain more power. Well, I think it's already there. However, you want to phrase it it's been reported. And I, you know, a full disclosure here. Kurt's a neighbor of mine, I know him I like them. Occurred Kurt started traveling with us in the middle of the season. Just to be basically an observer. Well, I mean he was brought on as I forget the exact title by magic. I think it was last year like a basketball L salt because something like that like it or not the Lakers are a family business. The Lakers in US have this comment. Yes, they do. They they USC hires Trojans because they think Trojans will get we'll get there say something as an alum. I don't like it. Yeah. And what the Lakers are cutting a page out of that. I mean, if you want to really find the connective tissue. Dr bus was a Trojan there you go. But I think so I think you're going to hear Kurtz name a lot. I think Kurtz going to be around giving Jeannie trust him. And he's going to be giving nothing personal against Kurt. This is not how I do it. I think they are making a real mistake that insulate I just mean the tendency towards installation right there making a real mistake. But okay, so Kurt Rambis, and rob Pelinka interviewed Jason Kidd yesterday doesn't this prove that I'm right in Mason's wrong. That there is no shadow console. No, she does this. Honestly does this team? So far seem organized enough to pull off the shadow GM thing with women talking about that that would be an incredibly hard thing in this day and age to even orchestrate no I mean, I would love to feel confident enough in the Lakers that they could actually pull off the shadow GM very hard to do. Yeah. I don't feel. They can do it hard to do.

And you know, we see we started talking about the growth in his jump shot and all this stuff every talks about then you see him come out in make the free throws in, you know, whether he's getting booed or there's something else going on as it relates to some level of scrutinize and Ben he's incredibly confident within himself. He has put in a tremendous amount of work apart from being just pretty darn good to earn that privilege, and I'm just so happy for him to play like he played tonight. And he is only twenty two years of age. I find it interesting that we're okay with the Greek freak not having a jumper. But we're not okay with Ben Simmons, not having a jumper. Now. The Greek freak is a better all around player. He can't shoot either better than Simmons though. I mean, my everybody in this room, even fritzy might challenge, Ben Simmons under three point shooting. Yeah. Pulling I don't think I would. I gotta be out. I I don't know.

You know, that is still very deadly starting five, but we saw here first-hand Milwaukee. The second unit leaves a lot to be desired, and I understand when you get to the postseason. Your starters are going to play more minutes, the rotations tighten up, but there are still some potential issues lurking. If foul trouble creeps in they have to rely on the bench, and the other thing that really jumps out. We've seen Brett Brown settled into different lineups. Now where he basically there was one lineup where you're not playing Jimmy Butler on the floor. You're kind of staggering Jimmy Butler and Tobias Harris versus. Joel embiid. JJ radic. And Ben Simmons problem there is. We saw it here. There are ways to defend that when Ben Simmons is on the floor with y'all MB and the other thing we're noticing. Scoff at me. Joel Embiid took thirteen threes in that game against the bucks. And yes, he made what seven I think made a fair share of them. Joel Embiid certain fall into that three point trap. And I am going to let him take as many threes as he wants if he's hovering around twenty nine percent for three pointers. But the Sixers the other thing worth pointed out here. You go back to. A couple of weeks ago. Sixers go on the road beat the Golden State Warriors. And it was thought that was just after the all star break. It was thought. Okay. Here. They come.

And you know, I shook his hand and started them, and you know, rent a middle pick and roll for maybe the whole game. I literally have no memory of Tim Frazier playing for the seventy six I didn't. I mean, he's played for a million teams. I don't I don't remember that happening. There were a lot of players that are in the NBA anymore. Oh, in fact, a very large majority are not in the end. Like, if you said Tony wrote in like, I remember, Tony, of course. But but Tim Frazier. I've got no memory of playing for people like Hollis who's playing over in Greece. And you know, Henry Simms was always one of my favorites and other one Georgetown, right and good people. Like, you know, just just a big who could shoot. Like, why couldn't you stick in? The league alley is. I think he's in business. I think he took his Georgetown education, and you know, made made some money and now jumped into real life. But no, he was good people. And he. Could shoot. And he certainly was tough. Yeah. You know, maybe the speed of the game got the better of him. But MC ws out of the league by in rookie of the year. I mean, thinking what think about that? Like, I suspect. There aren't many NBA rookies of the year who you know are out of the league. He'll be back. I think that he will be back. I think he's good enough. Big enough. You know has a position hopefully can just keep working on his shot. Well, the point is coach it's been a long journey. But here we are the playoffs are almost here. You got a killer starting five and Eastern Conference is shaping up to be a lot of fun. Maybe not as fun for you. As it is for just the neutral parties like me, but I'm glad you've. As we've said before not a lot of coaches stick through the twenty seven point guards to get to the team that can make the final.

You've had such unique tenure here if you actually go through all the names of the players who were part of the process, it's so many players twenty. I think it's one hundred twenty thirty like.

Is there a player like a forgotten process player that you are especially fond of or remain in touch with? Or you're like man, I gotta get back in touch with them.

Is there a guy like that that is still like near and dear to you that that Philly fans it's like seventeen iterations of the team ago? They've just totally forgotten about him to to sorta like declare one person know what what what I would tell you is like I stay in touch. You know once a year twice a year a random text. Hey, how are you with the very large majority of my players? I am shocked like every time we go out to do the national anthem now in season six, you know, where you're you're across the the line. And you look in down to be able to like see either a coach or a player that used to be here interests me, you know. I'm proud of that. Yeah. Hey, I was here. I saw him walk out. Yeah. He was here today. I mean, how cool is that? I had a film session today. We're going through situation defense, you know, when we'd try when we wouldn't in Allen's in the building. I bring them over. I sent him down with the team, and you know, a chance to talk and share some stories with him and him with me. And you look behind me, and you see all these banners of Philadelphia royalty with wilt and Julius and so on and they I and Charles and it's quite special.

Really, you know. I don't remember what it ended up the one four one. Yeah. You know, it could have been a sweeping to to remember like how that season was lost.

For sure mono when all the play is TIMMY, and Tony and all that that that's as spectacular a mental toughness turnaround in a statement that they made as I can think of do you face time yourself into the locker room celebration or anything I feel like that was your first year away after so many years with the Spurs, you know, everybody there, I feel like someone should face time you so you can watch the champagne, you know. I don't I don't remember if it was FaceTime. There was definitely communication and certainly techs, and you know from afar you let it play out.

How about that two thousand eleven you lose the one eight series to Memphis model's hurt again. And that those three in a row the end of that that was the first time people thought, maybe it's over. Yeah. Maybe that's it for the Spurs. Then the next year is the lack out year. I believe you get the one seed loose Oklahoma City. But that year was okay. It's it's not for the Spurs there. They won twenty games in a row. I think that you're and then collide change and everything thirteen fourteen and goes. After that eleven series against Memphis, which is Shane Batty hitting threes. All this did you maybe think it was over people within the team worried that maybe maybe the runs out. I mean, if the version of over equals, you don't have what it takes to win a champion just run the mill team. I didn't really feel that I really didn't feel that. You know, I was so spoiled three hundred my first four years you come in like you went and championships. Think about that. That's pretty good. It's pretty good. And you think well, this is wonderful. You get Duncan and Robinson than TIMMY retires. And you're still doing it.

Brad, did blah, blah breath is Brett gonna respond is that is is he up to this? Now. Of course, Brad has come under scrutiny this year for the first time. It's funny. How the way that works? But do do you do you as a coach feel pressure to like, you know? Yeah. I mean, the owners will come out and said we got we got big expectations here. I mean, do you. Do you feel the pressure for yourself personally? I feel the and I mean this this is in this is in often with anything else, but sort of a direct answer to your question. I feel a responsibility, and I feel an opportunity I think the the pressure. Word for me quickly is displaced by those two words on not young anymore. I I'm not you know, like you see the world differently. And you know, my focus is on trying to take what we have. And and just do the best you can to win, you know, and get it into the playoffs and win in the playoffs and the city of Philadelphia. I it's a it's a rough city for sure, but I actually in a very sadistic way. I liked the fight. You know, I like the blue collar side stuff. I'm I'm in the city all summer with my son at a events in playgrounds in gyms that nobody is heard of and stuff that interests me. There's a part of Philadelphia that interest me. And so this thing will play out as it will play out, and I sleep at night, just fine, and you know, excited for the the opportunity slash rates houses, sleep how? Was your mental health? Now, there's all this mental health talk about players in the and no. But I'm I'm being serious about I think Adam and Kevin love and demar derozan. All done a good job. Spotlighting sort of dangerous of social media and anxiety issues and sleep and all of that. We don't hear about it with coaches as much you sleep enough. I don't probably sleep as much as I should some of it is because this stuff on your mind, of course. Yeah. You know, and it could be anything from anything and so on. But I think the wood is in what what what never, and I mean, this would never is on my mind is all you know, you better get this, right or life isn't as good as it used to be. It's that's never how I think. I that's never how I think. It's always about how to you. You know, really help the play. It's how do you help them? How do you help your staff in that sort of that mentality has served? Me. Well, since I have been here only, you know, however, many months ago, there was great scrutiny and and recommendation to me like you can't come out last year and the preseason say goals to make the playoffs. Now think about that. And I felt like a coward. If I didn't say you serious like my goal is to make the playoffs. And then all of a sudden we started winning, and then we got ear sign and walk. Oh, then we wouldn't sixteen games in a row. And you know, now, we want the third seed and now we're going to play in the Eastern Conference championship and we lose to Boston. And you know, it's it's a big for me to a negative and was a season successful. And you're reminded of how fast this thing is changed. It really is moved quick. And so now this year, you know, we do the trades. We get to play his in the expectations are fair. You know, in many ways, the talent would suggest that we can be amongst the Eastern Conference. Big boys the elite, and so do we have time. We'll we'll. Find out won't we? But I feel like to your point about, you know, sleeping, and, you know, mental health. I'm great. I I love my job. I love coming into this office..

"And maybe like an I mean at the end of the day Josh in in in blitz rule. The dash making the final call. A guy. I'm up thumb up. I mean, it comes with tremendous, you know, thought and research in you know, the acid you give up we've all worked hard to accumulate overs over years. And so it's not it's not, you know, discuss lightly this tremendous thought, but at the end of the day, it was a unanimous thumbs up. You've mentioned Bryan Colangelo a few times that makes me think that you still have to have the same kind of relationship or level of affection for him that you did before whatever that level was have you talked to him lately. I texted him after it happened. And and I have not, you know, he he went he went on his way and now trying to rebuild his own career and move forward. I do appreciate the time that he came in here and spent with us, you know, I had a long talks with Jerry is dad about everything, and you know, Jerry because of. USA basketball and him being such a fan of pop. You know, he and I connected quite quickly. But in the meantime, you know, I look back at that situation with Brian and wishing well, he certainly has tremendous value. He's he's he's good. And smart at what he does. And just to see how it played out here in Philadelphia was was an incredibly unfortunate situation is the first you hear of that that the when the ringer emails and said, hey, we have this and that it just filters through the organization like, oh, I think so I don't really remember when I first heard of yet as I remember, you know, it coming out into the marketplace. I think guys were doing some pre-draft stuff at one of the workouts. But yeah, you know, like so much stuff comes out. You don't know. What's accurate, and what isn't accurate? But I do remember, you know, when it was printed and became public. That you first reaction was you know, is it true? Then you started thinking about you players and thinking about Brian and his family. He's got a great family. You know, matere son is a is place for the university of Chicago. He's gonna daughter go into Villanova. And you know, they're good family. And so you just hope everything is settled in. Okay for them. Yeah. No. It was it was obviously a crazy crazy crazy and sad story..

"And if you go through a stretch of a game where that guy is one of eight like, the math doesn't just work. The math just you just won the math by a mile. It's it's it's really it's really interesting. You know, just finally to your point when over my I think it's nineteen years over my years in the league, you see pick and roll defence has changed. It went to a heavy dose about six five years ago seven years ago into pushing stuff down the sideline, you know? There was a stage where you just chase over onto the big would drop people call the drop, centerfield, whatever. And then like that whole sort of pushing keeping things on the sideline evolved. And then here comes the step up. And he comes like offensively the snake bag so the cross box. You can just see the offense react to the defense and so on, but there was a tolerance. When you pushed aside line pick and roll that, you know, say Joel's back and say Benz pushing it and lamarcus Aldridge just goes sort of unimpeded to an elbow and just starts bearing you know, like elbowed eighteen foot jump shots after eighteen foot. Jump shots historically in my Spurs life. We'd always go and say, you know, what are we prepared to live with and biolog- you could stick without for the most part when you couldn't and way you couldn't was when the play is just got so like disheartened or there were stages of the game where you had to do something like the play his didn't believe it just repetitively happened. And you felt as a coach you better changes like the spirit of the team field. That's so fascinating. Because I was talking about someone to this about this with some of the other day like the the battle between math, and humans is comes right there. When when you have a game plan that the math says is a good game plan and for four. Sessions in a row, you'll lose the math at but the Matt still says, well, we don't change like ten more possessions. We're gonna win. But you see the players begin to look at you look at each other get frustrated, and like, I don't think they care about the math in that moment. That's when you take in my opinion, like a really big hammer in smasher calculator. It doesn't win games. It doesn't you know, like the play is of the pulse of what's really going on. And I think it's important for the coach in you. You say this and scouting reports or halftime, whatever do not overreact. Right. There's a stage where I got you like maybe we do have to change but do not get tricked quickly don't overreact. And it gets back to like, I think also at times the comfort of a player. This is this is the deal. This is the game plan. And this is the reason why and then at some point you might have to pivot out of it when it's just repetitive and people. Don't wanna see repetitive buckets defensively competitively that that doesn't keep that exactly what it is to get beat by the same thing over and over again, even if you know in your heart that same things aren't going to beat us much longer. It really tests two tests a lot of fascinating, human dynamics. Anyway, I don't want to belabor that. I just thought it was interesting listeners hiring. I can imagine is one of those things that can be challenging and time consuming. There are hundreds of job boards. Do you have to post your ad on everyone? How how'd you know that you're not missing the one job worth that has the right person?.

"And we have the tickets. Have you talked to Markelle Fultz and she got straight at him nuts. I hit him with a text, and and wished him well, but in relation to you know, talking to him after that, I have not have you come were. We're a month. He's now a member of the Orlando Magic. It's been a month since that is a thing. I don't wanna go through the history of the transaction. And all of that. It's obviously mon- a big moment for the Sixers that didn't go as planned. Have you come to any with with a month distance any finally to what happened? Right. I mean, we all have we all have ideas of of how it all happened. You know, the draft the the injury situations in between to speculate deeply, I'm not going to do. To to say this completely. Sincerely, I I will do he physically just as basketball body is as as gifted and well built as you could wish for in the design of a point guard, you know, long arms big feet. High hips, you know, an intellect that thinks the game all over the place like elite elite elite really elite. And so I hope he can take those gifts and in truly find success. I believe I believe he's gonna come good. You know, I think that that with time, and maybe less scrutiny and expectation because he's a good kid. And I do think that he cares. And you know, his situation obviously has been well document, but. In the light of day and in the review mirror to your point. Hindsight. For me says that those comments I can speak about freely. Do you? I mean, I have to ask you all just ask baldly. Do you believe that he was physically injured? I do I think that there was a connection to to him, you know, with sort of the the the the mental side of it all I think that he was something was up something was up. And I think like his injury me, you know, expedited, maybe uncertainty about how does this whole thing play out. How does it shake out? And so two pointed any other area, I don't think is fair. I don't think it's fair. And I don't believe it. So I stand by what I said. And I think it's you know is the chicken of the egg the egg of the chicken, whatever I'm saying the injury started this whole thing and it ended up where it ended up. One of the. One of my flash bulb memories. From last year's playoffs will always will always be the moment in game three maybe against Boston where you took Joel off before I and put them onto Marcus Morris. I I've been thinking about that ever since it happened. Not that it's on precedent. You know, you you understand why why you did it? But Jong mode in the game or timeout. So which which were extended stretches when when it was like his primary assignment was no longer. The opposing center was Marcus Morris over here on the wing. Yup. Understand why you did it. But would you? Well, isn't. I'm not gonna Joel is an applauding Senator who is considered a liability that, you know, the minute you face a shooting five like I'll Horford like oh my God. We've got to do something about Joel's defensive player of the year candidate. It was jarring to see a coach. And again, you're not the only one that's done this. I mean, go bare has problems in the playoffs to it was Jarno coach take a player of that caliber and say this assignment, you maybe weren't saying this to me what you were saying was you can't do this. Well enough. It's hurting our team. We're gonna put you over here. And now maybe you can help our team over here. Because Marcus Morris isn't a great shooter. He doesn't have the ball at you may be able to hang near the paint..

"But is he the guy that you want playing big minutes? Could we see in other move from Philly where they're trading and guy like a Marquel Foltz to a team that you know, maybe has we're tidy patient with him and develop him. And then they get back a veteran contributor that. Can maybe help in the back court. So that you're not relying just on Ben Simmons JJ Redick and TJ McConnell, though, megaton ascents I mean, plus there was another brief little update today from Brett Brown on Marquel. Folds someone asked him to be if he envisions him returning to the team and contributing this year and Brett Brown was like I haven't seen him in a while on an actual basketball court. So I don't know he said, hopefully, I'll be pleasantly surprised which to me was like pretty a pretty damning statement. So what is the price and we heard before they were interested in trading them. I just don't know how open other teams are going to be to train them. A good veteran piece four folds considering we haven't seen him on a basketball court. I don't think he's he's training bass. On on basketball courts yet. I think he's still rehabbing the injury. It's a little bit tricky for sure they won't get anywhere near the valuable. They used up to the draft him. But we'll see. I mean, it's going to be tough. I could definitely maybe a Wayne Ellington for Rockefeller's trade would make sense. But we're going to have to wait and find out. I don't see him helping anything this year though. That's for sure. Yeah. That's where you know. You don't want to give up a guy that was number one overall pick and needle on trade over pennies on the dollar just because I I'm not a big fan. Trading guys with our trade values at an all time, low it would really depend on what's out there in terms of offers like you're saying or if they could try to find someone through the buyout market or different trade that would make more sense, obviously. But we shall see man. This is a very interesting night. We wanted to start by breaking down the Philly LA rumor obser-, I trade I ever remember this point. But we do have other trader words, we want to get to we're going to break down the list that Frank recently put out that features ten players that were mentioned the most intrigued rubers over the past seven days, and we're going to give you guys a little bit of a trade deadline preview.

"Hanging out with lower here too. Few minutes discussing the rockets are physically better than the warriors. Whether Nick foles on the verge of another miracle playoff run coast club, Beckett Aref and crazy stories about Cowboys legend, Charles Haley, stay tuned. So good. It has been a month and a half since the Sixers acquire Jimmy Butler and today cited leak sources or Asia works now ski and Ramona Shelburne are reporting that Butler has aggressively challenge coach Brett Brown on his role in the offense. They that has complicated. The Ardy tenuous chemistry among the teams big three hierarchy. Now Brown had this to say on Tuesday after the Sixers compelling win over the clippers the he's focused on growing and shaping the team's chemistry. Quote. We are coming together. We have a new opportunity you don't just click your heels and throw Jimmy Butler in and everyone's going to be playing the same way and style it doesn't work like that. So my job is to grow a team. And if you look at this story reporting that they've done is that there was in particular film session in Portland believe that the team lost by thirty four points. There is a lot of frustration. And that Butler came at Brown in that film session in a way that some people in the room felt was disrespectful Brown late. According to the story told people within the organization that it was okay with him that he felt it was within as they put it the confines of the relationship. He already has with Butler. But obviously, there are issues there, and that the story talks about how Butler's frustrated he wants traditional pick and roll that this is a more free flowing offense. What do you make all this? But Jimmy Butler, as we know has been carrying a little bit of a track record in terms of dealing with with coaches. So, you know, they have some some issues they if this is the problem in hopefully, they they can work it out. But I think that Jim is definitely been a positive piece for them. And I'm hoping that they can work this out and they can be a positive team going into the playoffs. Someone that can be competitive because I do think if they're ready, and if they're healthy and playing well together that they can compete for tight like any other team. Yeah. Well, first of all we talked about this yesterday about the frustrations that come from because there's not a lot of room on the court because they don't have enough shooting. So that obviously boils over. But the other thing is look we don't know Jimmy is a very straight shooter blunt tool of fault. But Brett Brown doesn't have a problem with it. I talked to a Bernie Lee Jimmy Bolas agent. He said, yeah, they talk every day have zero issues. He knows that's how he communicates. It's not unlike dream on green and Steve curt, right? Very mom can be very demonstrative. We have seen problems at the two of them and look skies. Right. Jimmy has had issues along his steps along the way at some point. He has to learn even if this is his style that it might not work for the whole team. We will follow this story. Thank you guys for being with us. Have a great weekend games are jail. Yes, sir..
