That i had post all-star event shoutout to spotify green room that actually helped promote my spotify green room yesterday. I thought that was fantastic. Didn't know that was going to happen. We had a good time. Shout out to the homie brooklyn. Who was listening at work. And then just as. I was about to close the room hopped on. We had a good chat good conversation. You'll hear a little bit of that And yet Then i'm going to release an extended cut of yesterday's spotify green room and i'm gonna really add on saturday.

That's not gonna that's not gonna fly nuts. We have to abolish that. So i had a conversation about that. And brooklyn and i go on again about phoenix. What's up with phoenix. Actually my last green green room session. I lost the audio. So i'm saying this as if you heard it. But that's part of the reason we were missing an episode. 'cause anyway that's a whole situation but phoenix man. We've got some things some things to talk about. And then we're getting ready for three x three. You know what i think is interesting. It's not called three on three. It's it's there's a concerted effort to use three x three like by three. Why isn't it three on three. Is it three x three. Like why can't we say three on. Is there a reason. Am i not up with the lingo. It's quite possible you know onto his. Don't like to be thought of as old but it's kind of implied in the name but I don't know three x three. So i i was on the three x three call. I got to ask some questions of katie. New and kelsey plum. I hop off. Before least gray and steph dolton hopped on cara lawson gave some media availabilities.

Good morning here in Southern California. Laura, how are you? I am. Well, thank you for bringing me on, Did you? You get a chance to watch the t honest block last night? Sorry. I don't have my headphones on key moment. No, Don't worry. Don't worry. Vent lines phone in for rich on the rich Eisen show coming up in about half an hour. My buddy Jamie Patrick, off producer. Best friend of Rich Kleiman, Kevin Durant's Buddy Rich Kleiman, His high school power forward. Teammate Jamie Patrick Off, has become a big producer here in Hollywood produced a documentary about KD for HBO a few years ago. He's going to call in about 30 minutes. Laura's got her headphones on now ready to go. Do you see the honest block last night? Where were your thoughts? I'm not. Look, Ben. I'm going to be honest, I'm not much of a basketball. I have a little bit of PTSD with basketball. Was forced to play. I wasn't very good. I refuse to watch it because it just brings back very awful memory. I thought you were gonna say we're kindred spirits with he had PTSD because I'm a Knicks fan, So I was just seeing so much terrible basketball. No. Over the years I watched myself and I just That's all I needed. That's all I need. Well, the play last night, I think will live on in NBA history. And I think it is going to be a turning point in the series. Um Because the finals are defined by those moments, and you know last night that moment just to seal the deal for Milwaukee, who was down big and and slowly but surely came back. Middleton was outstanding. And if I'm Phoenix, I got my bounce back game from Booker. I kept eating out of foul trouble. Drew holiday struggled from the field and it wasn't enough. The others have to show up for Phoenix. You know, I think back to great role playing performances throughout NBA history. You think of Mike Miller in Game five for Miami. I think he hit seven threes. You think John Paxson in 93 that final play in Phoenix? A Game six were all five members of the Chicago Bulls touch the ball on the last possession in the game and packs and gets the wide open three. We all know the Steve Kerr shot. In the finals, I believe was 97 for the Chicago Bulls. Role players often times to find the NBA Finals. You have moments like last night with Yannis, but Its competence. Three down the stretch. Big time big time shot from Pat. The others for Phoenix have to show up. Chris Paul struggling. He's got drew holiday on him. Follow Tami beer. He's a great writer for Forbes covers basketball at a high level. He had a great staff. Drew holiday has been the primary defender on Chris Paul for a total of 78 possessions during the NBA Finals, and Chris is forced Seven turnovers. Comparison. Dennis Schroder guarded CP three for 83 possessions in the first round, and Chris Paul only committed one turnover. So this isn't just Chris Paul heading a mental block running out of steam at 36, the plant based diet, not panning out. No, it's none of that. Chris is competing at a high level, and I know his wrist has given him some problems that shoulder he's banged up, but Chris Paul is a gamer. Through holidays, just playing some excellent defense. And it's the reason why he's and all league defender. He's on Team USA three guys in this game on Team USA. Devin Booker, Chris Middleton and drew Holiday. And the American men's basketball team looks all out of whack. I know they waxed Argentina the other day, it doesn't matter. They look like a mess. They don't look like they have any continuity there playing timid and I think they can take a page out of what the women are doing. The W N B A All Star game last night was fantastic. And Team USA hit a wall against the W N B a all stars, and that's going to motivate them heading to Tokyo. To watch. Brianna Stewart, Brittney Griner, Sue Bird, Skylar Diggins Smith. That's a squad and it's because they've been playing together for a long time. So just imagine if back in February at the All Star Game if we got team USA versa, collection of NBA all stars from around the world. Have been a better All Star game, and it would have been better for Team USA as they try to figure things out before the Olympics in Tokyo without half their team after team still in the NBA finals, so kind of a mess on the men's side of things I know they beat up on Argentina the other day, but I'm not giving.

"The son wants seventy four to sixty seven. Obviously this follows the situation with cam beijing. Kurt miller and actually they they made up at the beginning of the game incurred apologize that matter a whole lot to liz put up twenty eight points on eleven seventeen from the field. It's one of her best games. Really an ss uniform. I think she looked great. And i think she should do them. More often So she played great. But the sun still want so i was wondering what your takeaway from that game was. I mean writing. Away was the liz campus waiting to play that day while wildly apology and everything was simple as it should have been I say they you know had a nice discussion ahead of the game. And you love to see that and again we're talking about brittney griner being something that is inspirational for kids to see but it's also good for kids to see something like that as well. you know. mistakes humid. And that's what it is. So i think for her to go out and go looking for seventeen from the floor now. This season high of those twenty eight. Does he know her career high. Nwea record is fifty three points of couple years ago. She has the ability to score the ball. And i touches this time. I think she wins that game. I believe averaging about thirteen a game and to go off like that and double that plus I thought she was very intentional. She wanted to do offensively against connecticut but on the other side of it for connecticut to come away with the win i thought they played great especially down the stretch Jasmine thomas was was amazing again She's she's really a force to be reckoned with jonquil jones. I mean don't wanna bonner. I mean this is a team right now that is playing not gonna mention one of my loose. Come on and bring on jobs. Get therefore chirps on that team. So yes you know but it was I mean just to have them playing so well. Gabe gave the plane grade. And you know i. I don't know. I really am not. I say base because that's not the right word. I am thrilled to see how well they've together. In the absence of thomas thomason how different that makes them as team right before. They played mystics. my chemo about that. And how different they look at. What makes their team. Different now without eliza thomas because she basically never came off the floor trump's thomas play huge minutes. The goal went through her but he said you know there's a lot more spacing the the ball shared a lot more of with bonner being there now who you know. They didn't have john last year. They have all these different pieces in and we were just talking about how gina that is but the way that they held their pieces in how they're new to another like bonner and jonquil jones are new to one another the fact that they're playing at that level with great chemistry early on his impressive to see and it's fun to watch that style of play and brown jones is playing great in. This is obviously our best year. Statistically in the league and you know she's getting more minutes you got more minutes last year. The bubble begin that. But i think now you know. She's really coming into herself into her game and the expectations of what she should be doing on the floor. And i think that's really bad. Watch as well so. I think that it's you know it's something that remains to be seen whether or not they can sustain that throughout the year. I think there's no question that they will be able to Because chemistry doesn't come and go either. Golly xactly so the fact that they have earliest is really something to keep an eye on for of fans some fans what. i love about connecticut. Not just this team this franchise is they haven't done identity and i think that that is kind over getting like yeah. They have a lot of chemistry. But that's not built on this thomas and pitta me of that but so his chest. Thomas says john jones says bridgen free jones. Like you have all these players that epitomized the toughness in the defensive. Togetherness that this team has built bear franchise on and that's a cornerstone of the franchise. And when you have something like that. That's when you start to see success. As a repeating thing it becomes it becomes a habit. Because you know what you're about you know the things that you have to hit as a team you gotta do xyz and you know you're going to do it every year year in year out. I think you look at the great franchises in basketball in the wnba in the nba. They all have identities. This is what we do. I think connecticut's on the defensive end on being on a string that they they're so good rotating. I don't think a better team in the league again defensive rotations in than the connecticut sun and i think if illicit thomas was here i think the thing we were saying last year was thomas. It breeds all out off of her and now she's not there and you see well okay and now. They have john paul jones. Who's an mvp candidate. Who i think is going to be.

"About it i'm going to be. Is there competition happening. And you feel like she has an advantage like is that what the story is yours you like. I mean she's like totally totally big. And i'm going to put in the senate to her did the same thing last. He don't know be like. Where are you going to the camera go. You said that she's six one. Six eight to twenty s. She will be bigger than any wm. Nba player on. Because what's the girl from phoenix. Brittney griner she's like six five six six bertie two hundred pound the most and that's the most physically dominant woman in basketball in. This person is three inches taller in almost forty pounds. W right. I don't follow spark or nothing but so this is why have questions so like brittney. Griner is she. Because she's i guess the biggest out of any woman on the wnba is she the most successful. No but she's she's a top five clear to leave because of her sides so then there could other. There could be other people on that girls team who could also be successful right. Not but here's the thing. The reason why brittney griner a big part in nothing that she's not skilful because she is but a big part is because kennel body match her level physicality so that's an advantage just like sad just like any other basketball player. Typically when you are bigger stronger faster you gain an advantage over your competition. This is beyond that in my opinion because physiologically g still a man which is stronger faster than women. We've seen big people in the nba. That can't play right. That are physically gorgeous. George john good i. I didn't read that much of the story. Well that's kind of important isn't it is a fair. Yeah because people kinda presenting intentionally importance with people's kind of presenting it like she's going to dominate everybody because she's big shaving. She can't do shit like she might be a white shaq shackled down worked out yeah and she goes and she's three inches taller and bigger than everybody else in. Nba shack was physically dominant and she's visibly dominated any other player in the nba. Then you know. I would think she should be able to do the same thing right unless know basketball. You definitely gotta have some new skill. you can't just z's oh if she doesn't have the skill housing unfair yeah. I think your argument with the with the The at the meeting was a little bit better Because i could offset gabrielle. Ludwig does like story lucky resurface. I was oh no. He acts. I wanted to in about any stats. That's that's what i was trying to look like. I say it looks like an old story but it resurfaced. Somehow i don't know what what i don't know what happened. Why i but yet resurfaced. I would think. I don't know for a fact of course but with the ma. Think i would think that that person would probably taking hormones which would kind of even out the playing field. I don't know how it works with basketball Because i wouldn't think just because you're big you can automatically make shots and you're good garden almost but there are certain things that you can do that just cannot be garbage and the prime example. Can you were talking about skill. Look at taco fall anytime he gets into the game for the boston. Celtics this taco fall literally literally aco. Ck oh something like that. But it's taco seven seven eight like he could grab the room without jumping literally. He could grab crab liquor basketball. He can't play. He just doesn't get a lot of time since he started. The also fits about that being unfair. Nobody's a manta's men. So i think i kind of think that that's like where even listen and be like You're kind of Dictating yourself on one argued. If you're going to argue that it's unfair athletically. But then they're taking hormones to even the playing field that's one thing but like if it's because they are a trans woman then i don't think that has really much to do with the actual I don't watch sports. what am i trying to say. Like how good they play. How well they play like. They might be clumsy. It really depends on. I like how much they practice and stuff like. They might be able to rush somebody but even in basketball. You can't just rush people. You know what i'm saying like they're still rules. Yeah but you could it just being bigger than everybody else. You can average a double double you can get ten rebounds and tennis or jerry buzzer ten points just because you're physically bigger. She might be mad. Slow so fast to look at the stats. I think a real quick Was when this is different. Honest says five points a game. Four percent is that good or bad. Is that the new stat on his bad. That's different than what i had before enforce it like she was like fifteen. Dang good really good and really go for a girl and that's really getting general general especially in college sports because just the way. The rules are set. They can select elite athlete in college. The way the rules are set. They they they position the rules so that way they can a bottle you to make it more even for everybody so you have people that score. That's more than a decent rate especially for for college women's basketball That means that that person's dominant you put them in the wnba where the rules are more. Open that allow mismatch to happen. Even more frequently She would average more than that in the wnba especially. She's making double doubles to doing life. Ten here's my question for you. What are y'all worry stats. Who any of y'all unfair and this is. What do y'all concerned with. It's not like how does this affect your when. I see it right so so when i see it just looks the optics of it looks. So what are you. What is your daughter. Had to play against somebody but his daughter doesn't so we're asking real life scenario right so so for me when i look at it right right. I'm like okay cool. No transgender wonder but whatever but the optics is the thing for me right and it and it just. It just looks really weird to me. You know how you can see something and it. Just don't look normal like that's just really kinda weird stocks for me is just like you know that's weird okay. So then it's not necessarily a concern then So it's not necessarily a concern. They're not concerned. I'm not concerned. That's what i was asking you if the if this league is allowing.

"They went eight rounds. Two minutes per round however i felt like because they are older so they want it to be more. You know people it to be more safe because it was a lotta hugging throughout the match. They weren't even allowed to like. Do certain moves each other in certain ways. Is that true yet an rules. It played a plato part into it. And when you actually look at the fight like you could tell like. I could be wrong but it seems like as if roy was trying to play it safe because he hit with a jab then he start moving star like running. You're not gonna murder mike. Tyson ties in like mike tyson and he was like yo. I'm into each so third fourth round. He was getting into in in my opinion. Tyson definitely one. I don't think it was a draw at all. I believe mike tyson mom. But i've another exciting little sports moment. That happened this week. Yes sarah fuller. She's a senior at vanderbilt university and she became the first female to play in a power. Five football game. And she was the kicker and The game didn't turn out as well as vanderbilt would have wanted it to but they did say that sarah fuller will be on the team and playing as a kicker again in the future which is exciting. Yeah yeah but on the downside. She's facing a lot of sexism on social media. And saying that it's a man's sport females shouldn't be doing this blah blah blah that type of stuff but because you read the comments and it's like what are you doing sitting on your couch eating like watching the game and she's out there playing so i'm willing to speak for a male athletes out there. I feel like i have there. They clearly need avoid shunned. I feel like honesty if you have the talent and you're able to do by all means i'm all for it and when you look at female athletes when it comes to basketball because in basketball all email is able to dock or do all these athletic things but you also have females are able to dunk his. Will you know what i mean. So for example brittney griner she can dunk. She's in the wnba. You have a lot of female. Athletes are released stepping up on scene female athletes dominate guys. Indust like like working out -solutely and seeing her go at a man. Oh dang like She can play like love like the wnba going to mercury games like before covert. It was just so cool like those checks can play basketball. And like the fans are so hyped up and just like the whole experience was so cool is like this is. This is a serious jalen. I can't wait to go back wins. Everything gets back to normal but true. I love the wnba. I mean i will be a little worried though as far as if she could get injured. But i'm sure there are figured it out to try to prevent ways from her being in those type of situations. Do you guys think that sports should be considered pop culture..

But even when we're talking about the same thing in the being safer with them to actually be on the regiment, I'm going to be on the schedule Because they know what to play football I. think that's that is for for college athlete on more than it is but not not playing. This Schedule already oh. I. Think the ABC. Want to SEC said we are the NFL junior bro Wiki things. By. Listening that in most sports and in some some of them cities. They're there. Let's team is bigger than their protein. Best would rise revenue. Stop This thing to remain Kaluga and you need you know yes, hurt bro Yes. They were. Thinks I heard somebody say today. In Lusaka. It will I think all brim another team over. Listen if they don't play. It's going to hurt. Is Call her lot of pockets GONNA hurt the economy down there So. You like those seeing some of the schools don't have pro teams in their state. So they're the only only show like in Alabama Auburn in Alabama is really like the main to as their their babies as far as that concerned but like. Arkansas. You know what I mean or. Missouri. Where's Missouri the collar anyway but you notice yeah. Gotcha. So. move were right. I wanted to jump into the WNBA. Pick put together. With the bubble, just some of the players that stood out to me some extent up to me in in in the bubble And some of the like cooling coil like top five players right now in NBA Wnba that stood out the stands out to me. It was tough man Gannett. Traffic out WHO. Top Five, because it's so many good players out there you got. The to the two who with Mercury. In Brittney griner in and freaking anything or named Russell. Diana. Rossi I know I like she. She she she on a top five all time. So you can't get it but. I couldn't go a couple of them To. You got the girl from the wing baller. Right? Nearly little wnba scoring. On a butcher named but being with A. a week right whatever and they miss. So I wasn't going to try wallet. Anyway. She gets she's a welcome walk. Nearly. Even the governor's fever, a guilty miserable she a bucket soule show I disqualify them just based on a record so I didn't put them in there But my number five I went with Courtney Vance loop from. Sky. me. To the Steve Nash of the WNBA. She's going to lead the league in assists. You're going to give you for Eleven to twelve points a game under you still a game, but she's GonNa get everybody else involved with with that team on our put her in there also because they four they. Always. In in for championship even Diana is not there no more I mean. Elena is not there anymore they still on both. So our guy according against Louis my number front. So my number five, I got skyla digging Smith. Yet. Mean Z. She's averaging sixteen right now a game. Phoenix you daughter thing.

Yes and just in case we wanna wear Fianna Taylor is her was a paramedic that was actually shot in her home by police Wendy. Enter home. For incorrect invasion. WE'RE NOT GONNA get into the story, but you know the store. And W NBA decided that they're going to step up and yet gonna go ahead and shed light. Now. Not. Only. Did you have beyond the Taylor's name on the back of every Jersey in that game against the literally versus? I do apologize I was gonNA. Say Sonics against Seattle Staw- versed in New York. Liberty. Every single player. Happy until his name on the back of their jerseys and every single play walked off the court at the time the national anthem was played. The WNBA is dead and in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter Movement for that whole entire opening weekend and I. Did. Not, get a chance to go ahead and experience. It lets phenomenal weekend. And jump into the next door we yes you guys for the NBA Day would just as excited about the w eight. WNBA coming back as the women. And they came out support and India Orange WNBA. His I'm sorry. Sweat sweaters. Of the BRA actually showed up at the scrimmage against your. Orlando Magic rocket hits. I'm telling you everybody's forward trae young Trae, young heads, Russell Westbrook with Elvis. As a matter of fact, I I'm thinking about I have to order me one to. You know. I'm a huge WNBA even though my favorite players citizens now right now and yes even though she insisted and now she is still with the team at not with the team actually there Bush with Team Spirit shots, Liz, I hope you. Have I know you made the right decision because I know your doctor telling you that you plan? would. Be a risk that. We on a hole. In the basketball community was not ready for. So I'm glad that you decided to sit that lack of. Recipes. Off. But. Let's go ahead and jump into sub W NBA basketball and you know I'm GonNa talk about I sparks over the Berkeley Berkeley. was actually playing on a completely different level than the Mercury was point in time I'm dave routed it was ninety nine to seventy six, and of course you know we all want to know how would the veterans? Especially, how you add them on the buses parts. Making them pretty much big three within itself we can is Parker ethnic. ogle McCain. So they, of course, led to write down the stretch pulling away and I'm not saying that Merkley do not have a big. You know with with Dan as Rossy with with Brittney griner and our Schuyler Digging Smith and I'm not saying that they don't have that big three-putt sponsor vetting to play that game and matter of fat. Pretty Vinyl got lots by five, a five, nine play it was. It was phenomenal. Basketball people were ready to play, and that's what that's where we're at right now you know. And I gotTA. Say. I gotTA. Sit. Watching. Those women play in that in that I in that first game we. Felt good. It felt right. You felt like. It felt like. They should be on. TV. A lot more and guess what ESPN obviously agrees with the way. I. Feel because they had expanded their TV coverage, you will be able to watch WNBA Games right? No. She Ain't GonNa have to search for a is going to be in your facing you're going to be able to see to saving sight. I'm excited about this. Let's go ahead and jump over to the world of sports. I'm GONNA take a little quick second to talk about this CBS. Yes. Chinese Basketball Association I am here to tell you I have been watching. I love what I've seen with them. I love how? I love everything about what? I've seen. I watched the ducks. The Beijing does go against the flying dragons. Now Mind you the flying dragons. I told you last week was killing things. What reason why I bring this? Not The fact that they blow them out one or two eighty cents, but the fact that it was in live sanity fashion. Germy Lane had thirty eight points in that game and he played like a man zest. I leaves needs to wonder. Where would Jeremy Lane had fell? In the bubble if he was on a team, the got picked up like Jamal Crawford Luggage sned. Then above. Would he have? been. Able to bring back and once again like how he had with the next. I wondered that 'cause I feel that. Possibly you know if. That to Houston he could have been a little a little something added for when Brussels. Brussels on the bench. And James. Auden's on the bench that little extra unit could've been what they needed to get over to the. Jeremy Lamb playing at this level after not being wanted in? An. Mba. It wants my hardly definitely want my heart. So that thirty eight points that was a phenomenal game for them. So I. Wonder. Now, what do we talk? About the world basketball of that. He's a basketball I'll. Let me talk about. Let's talk about a little something. About. A history of basketball this day in basketball, history. This is one of the more positive in basketball history because this happened on July twenty, eighth nineteen, Eighty, eight, nineteen, Eighty, eight. If you remember the eighties was pretty much the height of the Cold War and We ask Americans were not always seeing the danger the same on the same page of Soviet Union but the Atlanta Hawks became the first NBA screen to play Dover Union and the defeated the Soviet Georgia all started.

"brittney griner" Discussed on BallCourt - The World of Basketball with Coach Drew

"This week and reason why she went ahead and tied for the WNBA was to join the Minnesota Lynx coaching staff so with the Minnesota Lynx coaches after the already have in place damn now went ahead and fortified that staff you now bought on one of one or more dominant players in the wnba to teach others how to be just as dominant now as smile about this because even though my more sitting out this season there is chances that next season she can be returning now with Rebecca Brunson on the staff a war actually in the locker room. I think the Minnesota Lynx is going to regain their status to be one of the teams fighting for championship. And so it. Kinda makes me smile. You know because I'm a huge fan of my more. So it makes me smile to see the Minnesota Lynx of focusing that way and build in from within that building what they're doing I like what I'm seeing now. I want to go ahead and jump into the one that I am going crazy. I knew I was GONNA go it to write off the debt free agency the Hammy going crazy was the mercury phoenix mercury. They were doing so wolves abducted they were making the most. They're going to be the team to watch. And if you don't know who to Phoenix Mercury is yes added team with Diana's Rossi and Brittney griner and great news is Brittney griner has re-signed with the Mercury has great news. And if you think that. Is it no in clippers style fashion? Where the rich is getting richer. Because your Diana's harassing you Britney grinding you like. We got a team this year but no energy trade they have acquired skyler diggins. I can't get no better this. This is absolutely phenomenal. But guess what did in talks right now to acquire team. Charles absolutely insane is not going to be fair is going to be the WNBA also versus. Everybody else is so just in case this summer. You don't get a chance to space jam soup. The Mercury will be performing their rendition. Later on it will be beautiful. They'll be torn all over. The country dealing space jam on court is going to be alive. Thing is going to be beautiful. I'm looking. They're going to get a tony for this one. I'm hearing that down. Atrocity is GonNa play Lebron James and this one is going to be amazing. I'm in tears for this. This is gonna I cannot wait. Can you imagine that team I will arguably Dan is Kobe? Bryant of the WNBA. Nobody has done it like her and I know I know. Go back and forth and talk about sue bird sue bird who is a is a beast in her own an. She's been obese in all right but nobody does she is. She is one of the most fair basketball players I've ever came across. I can see where people come up. I play defense on hurt. They're nervous people were nervous. Jordan was like please help me. Please don't do this to me. Please do and she does it to you. Then you have Brittney griner. Who as a big? Who been the most dominating big that you've seen since a actually simpler shack. She's pretty much. She could do whatever she wants whenever she wants. And the whole the way the game is played around. She's so powerful that she dominates goes right to the whole nap. You add you add a wing today that slice dice and get buckets any way that she wants you. Add that Skyler diggins. How do you defend what matters which defend what could you do to get the right things in place to defense? So that is that is going to be a match up that I wanNA see itself now the jumble with Atlanta Dreams because I talk about the mercury all day literally. I could go on this all day. Today actually spoke about that for about a half hour wants to trade was made as talking to a friend of mine. Who doesn't even like basketball and I talked about a half hour so which I probably go for another show all right. So let's talk about the Atlanta dream. They picked up A. Let's as Jones for waiver. And I like I think that's a good pick up for them and he also signed Sakina. Strictly now that's GonNa make them competitive. I cannot say that they're going to be the top like the top four teams coming out right now but hands down. That's GonNa make them competitive. You you gotta shooter you gotTa Shooter Sakina. She's going to be a scorer. She's a bucket right there but I got to talk about my aces. Yes I'll talk about my aces. Yeah I saw first off. We picked up off of free agent Daniel Robinson. That was awesome pickup. I liked her. I liked her. She signed with aces. I'm happy but guess who resod one of my favorite aces. My kids favorite as is actually my one of my daughter's daughter's favorite players and her team. Actually this is one of my daughters. My heart team. They follow her. This girl she'll rogers. Yes the sugar is back in Vegas. I'll tell you should sugar rodgers has resided aces and I am super happy about it because I love watching her play and to be able to wash play as a hometown fan. I think that's going to be amazing. Now we always stop every always listened to see which is going to be a team that's going to compete against the team that we're talking about by team today that I'm talking about is the mercury and I wanNA know who is going to compete against them. There's only one team that has actually not one team but there's many teams right now sitting in place to really put a weapon on. Bamboo really actually put up a fight with them. The aces you have the sparks and of course you have to rein in championship. The radiant champions mystics. Yes the mystics has actually put eight to people because I reported on this show that they were in talks. Emma and Ella were at a Annalena worrying talks of actually reciting with the mystics. But now they're put pen to paper. Yes Ami's men and Elena Delle Donne has re-signed with the mistakes and it's going to be another fight and Mercury's garrod up is going to be ready. I have absolutely amazed by this. I'm loving it. I'd absolutely love it. I can't wait till the WNBA start. This is so exciting. The moves of the envy making. I've been watching. These moves all week alone with the also game is it has been a great weekend just basketball on a whole now that brings me to the next segment. We call shady or genius. Yes Sir and I'll my topic of shady gene because we're going to discuss the cavaliers and Andre Drummond. Here's what Andre Drummond was traded to the cavaliers and you could tell reportedly he was not happy with the actual trait now while getting beer. Of course is not teammates. He was very happy with the team he said he had. He actually made him so vocal by stating that he would not resign with the cavaliers. If they had kept the coach John Belene. Now John Bellini has had a very short tenure with two cavaliers fifty four games but from day one he just has not been the right fit for them. I'm talking that locker. Room has completely broken down the players. They're saying that there's assistant coaches on staff. That are more qualified to be head coaches head coach. He's gotten into verbal disagreements with the players public skirmishes with players and the media is just was not a good fit as a matter of fact there's been reports even stated that he was absolutely miserable there. Now the reason why POPs Shadia Genius is because we knew that what I do personally why Andre Drummond would not want to play for. John is not somebody. He has faith. It was pretty much a worse situation. He added Detroit. At least Detroit would building within a direction and he could not. He did not want to have that now. The cavaliers let Johnny go as of today because they wanted to wait till after all celebrate so today Wednesday. They have decided to go ahead and let him go. I believe is February nineteenth. Just in case anybody's wondering what today is right so they decided to go ahead partways with John now. Jd bickerstaff who was on his assistant on there as well as one or two better coaches and NBA will be taken his place not say immediately. There's going to be changes in Cleveland and things are going to get better and Cleveland right away but right now the locker was gonna feel different and I think this is going to a lot of other college coach looking to make that jump into the in his different animal displays here who are not happy with players. That are not doing or coach. That are not doing the right thing. I put his shadier genius because I have to understand. Was Andre Drummond out in John Delaney. Like that right when he was reported to be fired was that just the shady move on his part. Was He being genius? Stated that now Cleveland. You can go ahead and go ahead and take a shot at signing me now. We all know that Andre Drummond contract does not make him favorable to be signed by a lot of other a lot of other teams so could he just be playing catamounts. So this is something that we want to look into. So that's why I put it on shady genius so we will be watching you. Andre and we will be watching the Cleveland Cavaliers J bickerstaff. You have a tough tough job ahead of you to turn things around but honestly being for the fact that you are pretty much. The only team is in Cleveland and has bought a championship there in thirty years. I think you pretty safe have like a high bar to get over. At this point. That will shadier genius. And I'M GONNA go ahead and take a break because I have a special guest coming in today for our segment cake it so I want you to hang around with me. I'M CO DREW. And this is the world and basketball stick around with the ball court.

"I actually went to the Connecticut game. They have bodies in there, like shot out to amber Cox, who gave us the first class treatment that whole experience was. Amazing. But anyway, it's going to be hard for them to kind of find their way around. Liz in front of the x factor eight, I think Phoenix's pissed like I think they know that they kind of blew a game Seattle, so more than anything. Yeah. I wanna see how BG responds and we've seen pretty player play against Louis. Cam bailey. Just won't be our first time. But. Just what Bill lamb beard, does with his lineups and rotations with Liz now on the floor. I'm just looking forward to see how all that works out. Yeah. I know firsthand that Phoenix is a hard place. A plan is, is definitely hard. But, you know, I you know, Vegas is my team. So I feel like they'll be fine. I think they'll be just all right. Because campaigns is coming back. She's excited, they were killing without her which I want to just note that I had picked Vegas before she had even got traded there. So I just wanna throw that out there now. Thompson is one of the. Say that last week because I thought I'm gonna say it every week. Understand that what it was because, you know, it's just only gonna get better with Liz, like she's I feel like she's had a rough time. We saw her frustration with one and to get out of Dallas. And after like, now she's going to be wanting to go ham to prove her point that she was ready to go in now. She gonna come out trying to kill I and especially against BG. That's like that's a tough match-up right there. Like, I feel like that game is going to be so much fun. Because both of them are super competitive, you know, Liz is ready to come up and show out in like you said, I'm sure BG is not happy with the way last game went really the whole team. I'm sure he's not happy. But the way they was playing everybody contributed. There was no drop off at any point with any sub that came in everybody came in and was doing their part in playing their role extremely will in with last game. You know, I think Phoenix just had off day. There was completely outside of themselves, the something that never happens, but there's Gordon t. Team. But I mean I thought the way Vegas was even playing defense. I, I just think that they're going to be able to pull it out. I think it'll be a really difficult game but I think they're ready. They're ready for this pressure. Well, I'll say this Phoenix need Sancho, apparently, she's available. They did not have heard. They did not have Camille, little, they need those players to be healthy and ready to go. And I'm anxious to see how much Sancho plays, but if I had to bring it down to one key to the game can Vegas stopped on a Bonner because she's just she's just zone. Okay. She doesn't care, she's balling. She's she knows there's no, Diana. She's got set the tone. And that's just what is going to be. And so it will anybody from Vegas step up they've got plenty of big guards and defenders. But nobody is like the wanna Bonner nobody. So that matchup will be interesting. I feel like they have to stop everybody else. Db can't beat them by herself. So even if she goes off, they have to stop everybody else. We'll see we will see. And just to give a little numerical context to this game a last season. When the mercury and the aces faced off head to head. The mercury did take three of their four meetings. Also as excited as I am to see Cambay JR. Matchup against brittney Griner. She struggled against Greiner last season, when she played the mercury her thirteen point seven points per game where her fewest against any team, and that's going to be tough. I'm sure that's going to be on her mind as she heads into this game. So fans, make sure you are tuned in on Friday at ten o'clock, PM eastern time on ESPN to stay right where you are. Because when we come back from halftime, we're going to have more from China if talking about our rookies they showed up in shown out this weekend..

But the champs themselves Seattle getting their two thousand eighteen rings and their banner and further home crowd and their makeshift home now at the angel wins arena ever. They opened up the season with the rematch of last year's semis. No Diana Ross. But the mercury still had brittney Griner and dewana Bonner who combined for forty nine points and helped lead them to a double digit lead early.

The return of Kyle Seager adds to that number, of course and outing for you sake Kuchie on the bump tonight he lasted just three and a half three and a third innings.

That would give the as a five two lead and loaded up the basis to Mariners would go into the ninth still with a chance there, trailing six three but Abbott Domingo Santana. Journaling his not one but second Homer of the game nearly in the same spot there in left field. And then Kyle Seager. How about him too? He kept it alive with his second hit of the game. It's a one out double down the left field line. And he would into their with a double their j p Crawford, then gets a two hour double here RBI to left, that's going to bring home Seger, who then scores his first run of two thousand nineteen but the Mariners comeback falls short, they fall six five tonight in Oakland state titles on the line and spray sports for prep teams.

"So underrated like as much as she can do. Like I honestly a Rica was the name last year when they won. But Jackie is the one that got them there, Jackie is the reason that the that a reggae was able to make them shots into the game to win them that championship. It was all her in, I think she's just ready for you. Like you said, her build her physicality, she's just not scared of anything. And she's the bucket cheese, a bucket. She can defend like she is really to beat that. You know, like a rookie coming into you really has a lot going for so I that was my pick as well. I don't know why I thought that Dev, will pick anybody other than someone from Notre Dame to win. This how she gives ought to get spider. I'm just going to throw out there that I was rolling with Asia. I'd saw their preseason game. And I thought that Asia looked good. I think she'll she'll make some happening but staying with that defensive player of the year. So I know you mentioned this person is your MVP candidate. However, the GM's have a brittney Griner at thirty three percent, winning the defensive player of the year war this year. So let's start with you who'd you having your list, I actually like. Sill. Mine really. I'm not eating on day. Nine yes. I mean I there really must that they Sylvia foul. This is what she does every year year ending year out like, she, she just grinds this out in. I mean, it's, it's what she does there's a lot, you can do to get around her or, you know, I think BG even so like even with her Satcher she can get in foul trouble. And I think that is like, maybe the biggest difference for me or the separator for me is that people can have kind of figured out, you know, like you can pump fake BG and get her up or get her to hit you and not have to worry about her black and you as much. But still, I mean, you not getting around her. She's too strong. She's too big. She's too long in athletic like it's not a whole lot. You don't do. So that was definitely my pig. Plus one within that was that easy. Dad, let's stay with you. Unless have you tell us who your MVP candidates gonna be my MVP kin is Liz, I think that she.

But right now, I think that you know, what we have in place has been proven from doctors and medical experts to be the best policy that we can make right now. And you know, that we have to believe that. That's what it is. Right. Not just athletes, but trans people what do you think is one of the biggest misconceptions that you here? I think one of the big things is that, you know, aside from the the sport competitiveness is that. That there's a singular way to do it. Right, right. I think that particularly in sport. Because it's so binary we have male to female, athletes or female to male athletes, but we leave out this whole middle section of non binary folks of people who are transitioning and not trying you know, quote, unquote, trying to be within the small box of being female or of mail. And so, you know, understanding that we live in a very gender expensive world. And just as there's not just one way to be a man or one way to be a woman, there's not just one way to be a transportation, which I think makes it complicated for people to understand. It's so simple. If you just decided is that everyone just be who they are in love with a love and dress how they want and tell you how they wanna be referred to that it's sort of fascinating how angry it makes people. But again, it comes back to confusion or history or antiquated ideas of what matters and also it's very much about living in a patriarchy. Absolutely. It is very much about sexism. If we can't identify whether you're the half of our country that we think is less deserving less, strong, less intelligent, all of these things that we associate with being female than that will be difficult for us to decide whether you get the benefits and that sounds absurd. But it's it's so true. No. Thank you for saying that let me support you on that. Yes. You know, had mentioned earlier about wanting a male athlete to come out. You know in having those conversations be accelerated. But when we're talking about female athletes were fighting the river. Assumption that every woman is queer, and that creates a whole different set of problems and also not acknowledging, you know, the LGBTQ identities within women's professional sports in the same way. When I think there was a headline that said brittney Griner comes out in the world shrugs, right? Right. Like, that's necessarily always a bad thing. I think that's because there are many. We have amazing popular successful fantastic. LGBTQ women that are playing their sports and the assumptions about that aren't there as much as they are on the men's side. And so right. I just wish there was more parody. Because of what good it could do. Right. I I agree. And I think that we their society preferences, a certain type of masculinity sport. But also in the world. And so you're very right in saying like, you know, I think the reason people struggled with me when they couldn't I signed me as Miller female was that they didn't know, you know, do I respect this person or not? And that's so troubling to say, you are absolutely right. That when I made in US. Say I kinda got shrug a slap on the button a good job, buddy. And that was it. And because people didn't still didn't think that I would be competitive or that I would be able to do it again, or whatever it was, you know, I sort of feel like I've been able to sort of fly under the radar and a lot of ways which has been a privilege in it's my sort of inheritance of male privilege and being perceived as a straight white man, and there's a very real privilege of their associated with that. Because when I'm talking about policies, I know that I'm treated differently than if a trans woman is talking about policies, and so I feel very passionately about using my platform not to speak on behalf of the entire trance community. But to lend one perspective and know that a few more years might be listening. We're running out of time. But you just reminded me of something I had Christina Karl on the podcasts..

"Dream game. Now, it's like Asia-Europe there. And I did get a chance to catch up with you. But I know you watched a lot of it this summer, and how great it was when when you were up there watching what goes through your mind when you're looking at WNBA players a lot, you know, those like how they play as crazy like no, you have college in colleges like very talented. But then you have that next up which is pro like these are real pros. Like, this is what they do. There's no more like classes going to class school. This is what they do. They live eat and breathe it. So it's like you got like clearly till they I I was just thrown thrown off by like. How hard they play how strong they are. How physical the game is like those posts those guards. You know, everybody is so strong in the game is quicker to quicker than college. That's exciting though. Like, that's really exciting. Just how they all can score. Everybody can score the post can score the guards. I mean, obviously the guards can but like you have post driving like remnant rim. You have of course, brittney Griner Dunkin. It like you don't really see that too much in college. But I mean, it was pretty cool to see all of that. Yeah. I mean, and you're gonna be there soon. And actually, a little birdie told me, I just use that phrase. We'll get guy gave it away. But that when you were working out with the women's national team, you know, you had an opportunity to play with some of the the the best that you were holding your own really? What was what was that like for you that experiences? Oh, I'm glad they said the up in. But I mean to be on the floor with. Some of the greatest players of all time was humbling like I mean, it was just I was happy to be there. I didn't care if I just wanted to be a part of that. Like, I just I wanted to be able to watch in person how they play like just to be on the same cortisol innocent team scrimmage too. I mean, I was awesome. I'm I'm so thankful for that. And I was just trying to play hard and just pick their brain pick, sues brain, all of them. I mean, they're they're great at what they do. So I wanted to know how did you get there? 'cause I'm trying to get to where you are. Right. Right. Right. Well, you got another chance to win a national championship this year. And this time last year, and I'm trying to think of when we were in Columbus for that kick off tournament it was in November. But this not last year, we were probably like, okay Asia Dir Louisville will be hoisting the trophy next year. Okay. Like this. You know, we just felt like yeah. This is going to be her year. This is going to be Louisville's year. Where do you feel like you guys fell short and have to get over the hump? If you wanna make it happen this season without Misha Hines alad, right? A big piece, of course. But it's the small breakdowns. We can't really have breakdowns because when you're playing against those great teams where you want to have as few as breakdowns as possible on those impossible to not have them, but you want to minimize them. And that's what costs those in the final four was a small breakdowns that we had a thought we played hard. You know, obviously. I mean, they have a great team. They're very talented in coach by great coach. But it was. Those breakdowns that we had everybody thinks about that last second shot that she hit. But you have to think about the things that let up to that play. You know? So we watched the film. It took me almost two months to watch it out. I'm going to say, how did you get over that moment where you coach them was in my ear every day watched FM washed up. I'm like coach I'm trying just one step at a time. I'm trying to heal from this first. And then I can watch it. But no, I mean, it was great. You learned from games like that the ones that really hurt. Those are the ones we really want to watch because you could grow so much and I'm not now last season..
