Expect big crowds for the summer travel season -- and big prices, too
"With the unofficial start of the summer travel season here, travelers are looking for ways to save a few bucks. Prices to travel overall are expected to be lower than last year, but airfare is expected to be 4% higher than pre-pandemic levels. Paul Bowen in Dallas is feeling it. Everything's more expensive, take it from our expensive, so it's kind of hard to fit more than one trip in a year at this point. Stephanie hanrahan is flying out of Dallas with her daughter. So dad and brother are gonna stay behind for this one. They're trip to Disney World for two, was the same price as a trip for four to California. Last summer. Usually you can save some money if you plan ahead of time, but that was definitely not the case this time. So we kind of just had a grit our teeth and say, okay, if we want to have experiences in memories, we're going to have to make the sacrifice and pay the price. Triple-A predicts 37 million people will drive at least 50 miles from home this weekend. Several million more are expected to fly. I'm Ed Donahue.

Peter Schweizer Reveals Romanian Oligarch's $1M Check to Biden Family
"We learn about this $1 million check from this Romanian oligarch who was somewhat familiar to us? Let's be honest, Peter and the scheme of things a million bucks is just not a ton of money, but is that enough perhaps to grease the palms of the Biden family and get Joe to do something that you shouldn't have done? Do we see any evidence of that? Yeah, I mean, look, if you look at the bidens, the Biden family really does not have a whole lot of resources. So a $1 million for the Biden family is, you know, pretty good, pretty good sum of money. It's somewhat small by other standards when you look at the clintons and others, but that $1 million is still matters a lot to the bidens. And what I think is particularly scurrilous about this case, you can add Romania to the list of foreign countries that have sent money to the bidens. And again, it's never Japan or Germany or the UK. It's countries that are rife with corruption. And in this particular case, this gentleman had been charged with corruption. He hired the bidens to try to get that removed that attached to him removed so he could do more business in the United States. And the bidens turned to their friend Louis free, the former FBI director who also got money from this same individual. So this is a Biden story, but it's also a story of what happens to senior FBI people when they leave. And the answer is sometimes not good things. So

Peter Schweizer Relays All the Latest Biden Corruption News
"Schweitzer is on with me. He is senior contributor for Breitbart News. President of the government accountability institute. He is a podcaster. He's got the drill down podcast and perhaps the most important conservative author, working period, as well as my friend Peter, what's up? Good morning. Hey, Alex, it's great to be here with you. How you doing? Peter, as usual, we have nothing good to talk about as much as I would like to talk to you about positive things. There's only negative things to get to. But I want to get your thoughts on, first of all, some of the Biden investigations and then some of what's going on with the U.S. China relations. But let's start with there's two sort of competing revelations that we've been seeing coming out of Washington Republicans trying to investigate the bidens. Your world famous for your reporting on the Biden crime family. So we've got the House oversight committee that has just this week revealed that Hunter Biden perhaps got received a bribe directed towards Joe Biden for about a million bucks. This doesn't seem to be entirely fresh, but it was certainly framed to us as if it was fresh. Let's just start there evaluate first of all, give me what we learned if you learned anything from it. Maybe you didn't. And then give me what you think this means in the grand scheme of things. Yeah, Alex, I think the thing we have to keep in mind with this congressional committee is it's going to move slow just by its nature. And it's being driven by their access to records they've subpoenaed. They've been focusing primarily on the banking records associated with the Biden family and the myriad of Biden LLCs that they've set up. Thus far, they've obtained records from four of what are believed to be 12 banks that the Biden family had financial transactions through. And out of those four banks, we've now got about $10 million in foreign money coming to the bidens. And it's the committee is reiterated and as you and I have made the point really since 2018 when we first broke this story, there's no discernible business at the bidens have. I mean, there's no service, there's no product. They don't bring any capital to the table. The business seems to be them getting money for some possible future business that never materializes. And I think that's just a way to mask the fact that they are receiving money from foreign entities.

Revolutionize Your Podcast With Text Messaging Subscription Model
"Oh, one of the things I've completely ripped off from you. And in fact, I believe every Salem host will be ripping off in this you introduced me to the text messaging and we don't charge for it because people already subscribed to it. But that is your rants what I call ransom rambles because they're not always rant. That is a brilliant stroke. And I believe every successful podcaster will move to that model of tech subscribers because they add a lot of value. You want to explain how you came up with that or was that something Cleveland dot com came up with? Yeah, so it's a company that was sort of created through our company at advanced local. And it's called subtext and it's a way we call it sort of a podcast in your pocket that it is a tech subscription that you can send texts out that people get in their phone and it's just like a text from a friend. It shows up that way. Hey, it's Doug. Here's the thing I think. So we send news and analysis about Ohio State football to people. And we do it a couple of times a day. But the other thing that we've really fallen into is we send surveys to people. What are you thinking about these topics that are happening in Ohio State football? And then we solicit questions that we answer on the podcast sometimes. And we, as you said, we've fallen into this thing we call rants where it's not a question. It's like, what's firing you up right now? So send me your rant, and then I will read it on the podcast, and I will then respond to it myself. So it's a way to stay connected to people, to me, if you listen to a podcast and you like a podcast host, then you don't mind getting a couple of texts from them during the day when you're not listening to the show. You actually would enjoy it. You want their expertise, you want their personality right in your phone, and we charge a couple bucks a month, but they're the producers for our podcast, right? They send ideas. They send questions. They send rants. They answer surveys. There are focus group and it's sort of the level of die hards that want the podcast, but also kind of want the podcast even when they're not listening to it. I

"Coming up Monday, we're starting our prison fellowship campaign. It's a very, very crucial thing that we do every year. We send a bunch of children of American prisoners to summer camp.

We put the banner up early at Mike online dot com. The campaign gets underway Monday. But if you want to get a jump on it, this is a game changer for kids who are going to have their lives impacted this way. They're going to get to go to summer camp. They're going to learn the gospel. They're going to hear the gospel, they're going to be outdoors, they're going to be with kids. They would normally never get this opportunity. Many of these kids are at risk, you know, underprivileged kids who are suffering because they have a parent, maybe both parents in prison. And the prison fellowship ministry, ministers to these kids and provides them with a week they will never forget. The campaign starts in earnest this coming Monday. But again, the banner is up early. So if you want to go to Mike online dot com and get a hit start, $200. We'll send a kid to summer camp, maybe you want to pop in 20 bucks, 50 bucks, whatever you can afford, like my buddy Larry elder always says, put a little in the kitty and let's help these children's lives be on a trajectory that might just keep them out of the life of crime that their parents are in.
Why Bitcoin Failed in Central African Republic
"We start with the piece by Jonathan buck. Jonathan buck is the founder of JB and GS mining, a German Bitcoin mining hosting company, and this piece was originally published on Bitcoin magazine. The pieces called the fall of Bitcoin in the Central African Republic. Why this legal tender experiment failed. Just a year after making Bitcoin legal tender, the Central African Republic had been in its plans to revitalize its country. Why? Jonathan writes in April 2022, the Central African Republic CAR adopted Bitcoin as legal tender, becoming the second nation in history to do so. However, just a year later, the nation reversed its decision. But what are the reasons behind this failure in the CAR? Challenging economic conditions. The CAR, one of the poorest countries in the world faces numerous obstacles, such as political instability, inadequate infrastructure, and food shortages. In the 2018 human development index, CAR ranked second to last, with around 79% of its 4.7 million residents living in poverty. More than 3 million people in the country are reported to require humanitarian assistance, while more than 85% of the population lacks electricity. One of the significant barriers to the success of the Bitcoin project in the CAR was surely the country's limited Internet access. With only about 10% of the population having access to the Internet, widespread adoption of digital currencies was highly unlikely. While Bitcoin has been helping to bank the unbanked globally, the digital currency alone can not solve all of a country's underlying infrastructure problems. And while Bitcoin can be resilient off the grid, the lack of basic amenities such as electricity and Internet and CAR likely hindered the spread and usability of Bitcoin there.

US employers added a robust 253,000 jobs in April
"The labor market has been standing its ground. It made factors like high inflation, bank failures, and rising interest rates. Hiring has gradually slowed, as have wage growth and job openings. But the job market has stayed surprisingly strong, even in the face of the Federal Reserve's aggressive rate hikes. We've raised rates by 5 percentage points in 14 months. And the unemployment rate is three and a half percent, pretty much where it was even lower than it was when we started fed chair Jerome Powell earlier this week. It wasn't supposed to be possible for job openings to decline by as much as they've declined without unemployment going up. Well, that's what we've seen. Powell says it seems possible the labor market can keep cooling without big jumps in unemployment, which would buck historical trends.

Dinesh and Debbie Review the Twitter “Blue Check Mark” Controversy
"Thought we'd start by talking about Twitter and the so called blue check mark. The coveted blue check mark that once signaled, I'm an important person. I am officially verified on Twitter. I am who I say I am, no one is impersonating me. And in fact, you and I in this conversation because I've been verified. I had to check mark for a long time. And you're like, why can't I get a check mark? I tried for years, and I was like, yeah, you know, people didn't impersonate me. And they were, you know, obviously saying negative things and whatnot. And I was like, I need to be verified because I'm married to a public figure and a public figure myself. And so I need to be verified and I tried, I would submit my license, my passport, all kinds of things. And I never did get verified. Well, this was the old Twitter regime and Elon Musk comes along and he could have just said, well, listen, I'm going to create a fair process of verification so that only people who do have this kind of public figure status, but in fact, he decided to democratize Twitter itself. Basically, say, listen, if you want to have a confirmed identity, you want to have a blue check mark. Pay 8 bucks. And then show that you're you. And you'll get it. So he opened up the blue check mark to everyone. And it's funny is that the left is like freaking out over this and getting really annoyed and they're elitism. They're shocking elitism. It's coming out in spades. Here's an article in slate. Now it's a disguised article. They don't want to say what aristocrats were better than everybody else. So here's how deep they frame it. How Elon Musk turned the blue check mark into a scarlet letter. So supposedly Elon Musk has made the blue check mark something negative instead of something positive. And the subtitle is a weekend long masterclass in business failure. So, you know, the article basically says you've got these celebrities think of people like LeBron LeBron James or I guess the novelist Stephen King and they say I will not pay for my blue check mark. And so Elon Musk will sort of like really, all right, fine, I'll pay for you. So evidently, Elon Musk has covered the $8 cost of some of these celebrities.

Celtics Stuff Live
"bucks" Discussed on Celtics Stuff Live
"I'm just not sure. I would say it's above defense gimmick. I've always thought the gimmick. I don't know. That's just me. I just think it's a gimmicky defense and I select as a way around it if you're smart enough. And I'm really disappointed that you may didn't have that answer today, or at least the team didn't deploy what you may want to do today. But I really interested to see what happens Tuesday night because if they can figure it out Tuesday night, I'm probably back closer to my 5 game 5 type prediction because I don't think this one felt like more of an outlier than I think it really will be. Yep, I agree. It won't be called that way every single time. And I think the other thing, the team was really slow. On offense. And so there's two things that can improve that. And if they can speed it up, then the bucks gimmicky defense is over. I mean, it's really about quickness. And even defensively getting rob involved, but having him crash a little bit more instead of trying to like having him play defense bodying up on a Lopez. Just isn't good. We're never going to win on that. Even with his athleticism, they almost need to, I don't know if this is the right word, but they almost need to run like some stunts. Or they let Brooke Lopez sort of body up a smaller player, make it make him think he has the advantage on the matchup and then rob rotates over and plucks the ball out of his hands. You know, and so they have to, they have to disguise that a little bit to let Lopez think he's got more. And then get in that mofos head. That could be one thing. But the speed thing is also about all the clutching and grabbing out at the point of attack. They just couldn't initiate the offense. They're going to have to do something higher, even higher, to get things moving and get everybody going. So that they can get that bigger, slower defense, like into that rotation enough. The problem is, as soon as it slogs down, Milwaukee is fast enough to clog up those passing lanes. So they just weren't finding any of them. And they're going to need to run more to man game higher up a lot faster. They almost want to, you almost want to have two packs that are above the three point line, or they're coming over one, and then weave them back across the other one, and then all of a sudden everybody collapses back in because you're either going to get a good look for somebody like Jason out beyond the arc in that scenario or you're going to wind up creating the space in the middle that they need. We need brook Lopez in and out in and out and in and out and in and out. Those guys have to be running all over the floor..

"bucks" Discussed on The Garden Report | Boston Celtics Post Game Show from TD Garden
"I was just going to let you guys know. Basically the way it goes now, if the Celtics win, if the bucks go to and the Celtics win, bucks two Celtics three. So they lose that Milwaukee now controls their own destiny for that two seat if they want it. If they go two and zero. Bucks two O Celtics Celtics lose and sixers went out Celtics fall to four, okay? Celtics will also stay at the sixers have to win out. Yeah, Celtics will also stay at the three if the sixers lose one of their two games no matter what happens. So basically Philly has to be perfect and the Celtics have to lose for them to fall out of the three, at least for the matter. For the two they need the bucks to split. And them to win. In the 60s, the sixers have a back to back this weekend too. So that's key because all the other teams that have already done it back to back. I'm not mistaken right. Yeah. They're Saturday Sunday. If the sixers split, the Celtics stay in the three spots. No matter what. If Philly does not finish the season perfect. They have to win both. Are at least the three. Celtics can be the two with a win and a buck split over the last two. Okay. So again. Because games are played Friday and Saturday, you're going to know Philly may have already lost so you know you're locked into the three at least. And the bucks will, the bucks will have played and you'll know whether or not you've got a shot or you won't feel he's playing the Philly is playing his pacers and the pistons. Two teams that they should be. If they want to. But you don't know when they go into rest mode. Because again, you don't feed still trying to play with this MVP and all this stuff. But the bucks have a back to back tomorrow and the sixers have it Saturday Sunday. So you wonder, you know, what they're going to do, Philly, you know, it's so they have to decide whether they want to go kind of balls out for this too. So, you know, the schedule is weird in that way because they have, you know, everyone's got a back to back somewhere where you think they're going to arrest people. The Celtics it was tonight for the bucks it's tomorrow and for Philly at Sunday. Well, Philly, we know that couldn't go to couldn't go to Toronto to play. So if they stay in the four seat, they would be locked in with the raptors. So I wonder if that's going to play into their ideas of not wanting to go, I don't know..

"Third Philly loses here in Toronto. Philly, if the Celtics win, they can't finish worse than third. They're going to win that tiebreak over Philly. They have to lose in Philly has to win out for Philly to jump them right now. So the Celtics still control at least that portion of their destiny if Toronto is something you still want to avoid. Who knows? You lose to Memphis Philly wins out. They're going to drop to four. And that's just where there will be. Two is in play, but it's complicated because the tie breakers with Milwaukee go down to division record and you don't know what what's going to happen over the next couple of games, but two is still technically in play because the bucks could also lose to. But right now they feel like nestled into that three. So if that's where they want to be and that'll end up with Chicago, which we all agree is a pretty good first round matchup. That's where they're going to end up. But that means buck's most likely in round two. And that's what you have it. You can't really control it. You're going to have to beat these teams to get to the finals. Anyway, so it doesn't matter that much. You're hoping you play that bucks team with rob back, but I mean based on what we saw tonight, again, even if you only have Tatum and harford back, you still have to feel pretty good about your chances. Yeah, I agree with you. That's the big, that's the big takeaway. You're starting to look like you're the three and the bucks are the two and I feel pretty good about this team going three 6 against Chicago from what we saw the other night and you just got a taste of it. The last two games and I feel pretty good about three two against Milwaukee even though they are, in my opinion, you know, the class of the east, I don't know, you can't not feel good about it after tonight. And to me, the crazy part is that even though we give the Celtics credit for playing a good game tonight, it didn't feel like this group played a great game. And yet they were there. Without two of your top players. You're right there. Yeah, that was a big part of this. A big part of is the threes fell. Back to those times. They were back. He didn't have much of a choice, but they didn't have much of a choice but to launch them threes because it's on a back to back. You don't have any inside presence. That's true. You have no choice but to just become team shot chuck. Which is what they did. And they went in. And I'm okay with that. And it went in the same house. It looked pretty damn good doing it though, right, Charlotte? I tell you what. Tim how is your look more comfortable and offense and Aaron nismo has ever looked. I'm not being sarcastic. I'm not exactly..

"To play for a story franchising. Learn with the league all about but to answer your question. The answer is actually no. He can be champion in la but he can't maximize potential just by the geometry their line. No lebron james. Anthony davis are gonna play the lion's share of the minutes up front and you can't have all three of those guys really on the floor so therefore he's not gonna be able to score kind of buckets. Petitional scored i remember they. Were playing a game at philadelphia. A couple of seasons ago like dirty in the first half like the guy can get buckets. So don't think that if you put him on another squat he couldn't be an immediate twenty points scorer because coups mccann and will if they win. He goes to a different team. This seems to me to be one of those situations in business that we all try to look for where it's mutually beneficial where everybody wins. I feel like lakers. Do need to mix up their roster. After the cowboys is a good player that deserves more minutes a starting spot a spot to shine and score and being twenty five points scored tried turn into an all star. Like you mentioned ingram and randall. Did i think this is going to happen. I don't see how in a lakers uniform next year. And i see that being good for both and the lakers jalen. Of course the milwaukee bucks chevy's and let's not forget and tampa bay bucks a champions and they had their ring ceremony lou. Do they have some nice super bowl rings when you take a look at the detail of these rains down inside. The ring is the stadium. And then you slide the diamonds on top to reveal what the ring looked like. What do you think about these rings. That attempt bay bucks earned last year. This the rings as we sink brawled. Tom brady kid definitely bring him out home. We got seven championship rings. Seven that is insane and what five. What super bowl. Nbp's is that the number is so many outstanding and shout to the tampa bay book and nears though because they did something in reverse that. If i was building a football team i would actually consider doing of course. Everybody wants a franchise quarterback and usually you get that player in the draft. Look around the history of the league. The team gets their franchise quarterback they draft them. However james twisted. And you realize at that time He's a franchise quarterback who bought away definitely is. It should be starting for the saints this year. Surprise a lot of people. I think he's a really good player. Bill from the outside in they put together the receivers. They put together the defense. And so now. All of a sudden you plug in play like the denver broncos with peyton manning. Tom brady and now. You're a super bowl champion. And so i appreciate what they were able to do. And they're returning all twenty two and so. Don't be surprised if kobe if we're talking about the same thing this time next year. Well one of the teams going to try to keep that from happening. Are the dallas cowboys. We're gonna discuss zeki elliott is. He has training camp. What expect from him this season. What does he need to do. How do you need to change. We'll talk about that right after this you're watching zeke's hair and fear is brought to you by liberty. Mutual insurance only. Hey but what she leaves.

I think that he's gonna come back maybe week one a week to after he sees what joy to do because he wants to be able to get his freedom papers get his freedom papers he asked to come back and play because fulfil his obligations in his contract. They're going to steal hold his right and they're just petty enough to dig in as well if he doesn't come back we'll do. The writing is on the wall. You could tell aaron rodgers body language dead. He's content. he's happy we is and you know what's the crazy part even though he's not winning championships on the football field. Guess we just want a championship. What the buccaneers. Because he's part owner the buffalo. The milwaukee bucks. He just wanted championship with them right. Now i see no desire. I see within rogers. He has no desire of coming back. I don't even know if he even cares about playing football at the moment to be honest with you. He is living his best life. When you turn down. That type of money is not about the money. No more when you quit communicating with the front office in organization is not about the team getting better. no more it's about aaron rodgers. And how he feels right. We got to know that. Although we'd look at tom brady. We look at him being up in age and still getting it done his passion his love for the game. We have to start ex questions. Hey where's aaron rodgers at korea. Do we still love the game of football. Do we still want to be a part of the game of football..

"Dug in right so if you had to wade your last question for you. How does this get resolved. I think he plays. I think is going to be some pain In august and i you know. I'm not even factoring in training camp fines or whatever that is aaron doesn't need training camp and doesn't need preseason games. There's gonna be some pain in other words he's gonna try to bring him to the brink and trade them. I maintain they. Won't i mean. I'm just throwing this one out of the pain point. I talked about the board. I have no inside information that but to me. If you get to the that that breaking point there's an answer tax. Get them for the year but he gets out in on his terms. So i guess my answer is he plays in twenty twenty one for the packers beyond that abets raw. Yeah and you have sort of said. And i've been following you on twitter. When it comes to this you do think ultimately he will get traded next year. Always great to catch up actually. Just tell me real quickly. There's there's a lot of buzz here. There's more optimism than there's been in the in the football teams chances in this upcoming season. What do you think yeah. I mean they're in the right division. it's i think even a year later still down division compared to others and they have an opportunity. You know how.

"Packers which will talk about and number three. They gotta manage this all my god. They've got to manage this. Because all i did for three years was managed. I had brett's camp thing andrew. It stinks to come into work research replacement. That's And i had errands camp thing. Is he ever gonna play. Is he ever gonna play breasts. Never gonna retire. Why don't you trade. So this is what you do with. And i'm not sure the packers of manage this well because clearly aaron feels a breach. Aaron feels like there's been a breach of trust from the front office. I don't know if coach. Joe manner to the president. But it's telling to me the most telling part of this whole story for four months. Is that those three entities president. Gm coach have all sat with there in la. Or wherever it's been and here we are and here. We are yet. It's i love i. I love the detail that you share about. Two thousand five. Th the situations are different. But i'm going to ask you anyway if you were. If you had been in their situation last year would you have gone to aaron rodgers and included him in this division. This decision in made him feel like he was a significant voice in the organization. Two thousand five year plan wasn't to draft aaron rodgers. So you know there was no. There was no beforehand. Hey we gotta let brett were in the market for a quarterback. You just draft your board. And you would've traded that pick if anybody had come up in and taking him but last year if you were the packers if you were mark murphy guten kunst. Would you have gone to aaron rodgers and been more upfront. Well i don't know d- store in the draft room. We may never.

"Him coming back at wide receiver. You had some issues. You added curtis samuel. You added adam humphreys. You added yami brown. You needed secondary help because you lost ronald darby. Who had a pretty good year. See you went out and got the best corner in free agency. William jackson the third. You needed linebacker helping you drafted one in the first round and you also needed good quarterback play because you didn't have it last year and you tried by swinging big but the runner up prize was ryan fitzpatrick. If you believe that washington is a legitimate contender. Sam macho and. I didn't hear the reasons why it's because they had a really good off season. And you believe in ryan fitzpatrick. You have to believe in ryan fitzpatrick. If you've got washington winning playoff games this year or being a double digit win kind of a of a team. You have to believe in ryan fitzpatrick. I used denver as the example. All the time there are others. Denver hasn't sniff the play offs since two thousand fifteen when they won the super bowl and they've had great defensive talent and exceptional defensive coaching and in the last couple of years. Incredible skill position talent. But they haven't had the quarterback washington could end up being denver for the next couple of years if ryan fitzpatrick if you don't believe in him or if he doesn't deliver or if taylor heineke doesn't deliver you've got to believe if you believe in washington this year is more than just a nine and eight division winner in a bad division and no chance to advance in the postseason if you believe in them more than that. You've got to believe in ryan fitzpatrick. My personal belief is. I think they're going to be an improved football team that they will be improved again on defense and that they will be improved it on at quarterback but that there are still several teams in a loaded loaded. Nfc that are better than them in part mostly in part. Because they've got quarterbacks the rams are better the seahawks are better. The forty niners might be better. The buccaneers are better. The packers with rogers are better. The cowboys with prescott should be better. There are a lot of people that are really really excited. really optimistic. really bullish on washington. I think that if you are it's because you really believe in the off season that they've had and you believe in ryan fitzpatrick but you know who doesn't really believe in washington. The boys in the desert. They're still the ninth or tenth at a sixteen teams in the nfc in terms of odds to win the nfc championship. Their season win. Total is eight and a half. It's probably one of the better numbers. Now it's a seventeen game schedule for the first time But you know essentially they're they're you know if we if you put it back to last year there over under total is eight. You know in sixteen game schedule eight and a half and a seventeen game schedule their predicted to be you know barely on either side of five hundred. When's the last time that maybe twenty sixteen maybe twenty sixteen. They had an eight and a half or nine number on their total win total. But it's not ten. It's not nine and a half. Which is what dallas is. It's not eleven or eleven and a half like it is with you. Know the buccaneers and the rams and the packers if rogers place for them the nfc's a really good conference even with the nfc east. There are eight teams eight in the nfc with win. Totals of nine or higher so eight teams predicted better than five hundred and the upcoming season. Washington's not one of them dallas. The packers the vikings the saints. The buccaneers the rams the niners in the seahawks. Half the conference half the conference is predicted to be better than five hundred actually. It's not that remarkable. I guess that eighteen at a sixteen are predicted. Finish above five hundred Yes the math on that Is probably pretty consistent year in and year out that you've got half your teams with win. Totals equaling up five hundred or better But i guess my point. Is i kind of view the nfc as loaded there are five teams. That i think if they end up in the super bowl it's not going to surprise anybody the seahawks the niners the rams the bucks the packers. That's five right there. I don't put washington in that class. I think they're going to be an improved team. I think they're going to place him entertaining games. I think they're going to win some games during the course of the year. That are going to make us believe that. They are a much better football team than they were a year ago. But that's not saying much. They just were average a year ago. I think they're going to be improved. But i don't think they're a playoff team. I think maybe twenty twenty two. And beyond when legitimately they start taking a swing at something much bigger. But of course that will be contingent on having the quarterback plenty of time to revise that forecast though between now and opening day up next andrew. Brandt longtime nfl. Executive in green bay will talk. Aaron rodgers and ask kim what he thinks about washington in this upcoming season. That's next right after.

"You're going to be able to get tickets like you've never been able to get tickets and i'm talking about through the team. Not through the aftermarket for ten bucks as we all know in recent years you've been able to go to game certainly after the mid point of the season for fifteen bucks or less in a good seats. They are in a mode of operation that they've never been in before they are aggressively trying to get fans they're trying to acquire customers. You know it's almost like a new start up business. They are in the customer acquisition business and by the way that can be very expensive. And i think it's going to be so interesting to see how aggressive they are and how creative they are in trying to get people to come to the games getting people to watch the games and then to what the results of that are like. I would expect the the chargers opener to be a pretty good crowd right in two thousand eighteen. The home opener against the colts remember after they had beaten arizona in the opener in alex smith. First game as a washington redskin and then remember adrian. Peterson's first game he ran for one hundred yards. People excited are. We got a quarterback. We got running back and they came home and there were like forty eight thousand. Maybe fifty thousand at the game on a beautiful sunday afternoon. One o'clock game against the colts. That was weird. That was another one of those. My god it's not anger. It's not you know people being pissed off. It is total total apathy. But i you know. I think watching how they market themselves and then watching what. The results are obviously winning on the field will drive the most in terms of results but How it plays out early in the season with some optimism about the team. I think will be interesting but the business of the team is going to be there for all the see. It didn't used to be. They will be aggressive in marketing and selling themselves like they've never been before. I hope that personally manifest itself from a pr standpoint with you. Know more accessibility to The team to the coaches to the players. But you know when training camp starts but certainly when the regular season starts they have not been the most you know accessible in recent years they should be there in the mode that the other teams in town are in. They should be doing everything they can do. Customers the other Topic i wanted to get to is something that sam acho said this morning. Who was sam macho will. He's a former player in the nfl and he is an analyst on espn. I think i know who he is but this tweet this morning. Got a lot of attention especially among washington. Football fans sam macho was on greenberg. Show get up this morning. And after his appearance on the show he tweeted out the following. He said y'all jeff saturday who was on the show with him. The former colts senator who's been in. Espn nfl analyst for awhile now. He said jeff. Saturday just accused me of being high on national tv. And you know what he's right. I am hi. I'm high on the washington football team being the biggest challenge for tampa bay in the nfc. Coaching and culture teamwork in talent. Washington has what it takes. So he's not the first there have been others. You know certainly people locally and plenty of people nationally that are very bullish very high on washington this year and i was thinking about that as i have several times in this off season and i am wondering why and i'm also trying to put it in sort of a realistic Perspective first of all look. You shouldn't care. And i don't care that much. It just makes for good conversation in july. What other people inside the market or outside the market i would take more of what people inside the market that you trust and believe in believe about the team more than people outside the market but there is optimism. You know i said this recently. I think there's more optimism about a season. There's been since two thousand thirteen twenty sixteen was a house of cards because i think we knew they could be good offensively but defensively. They were just not very good. They just sucked defensively in twenty fifteen two thousand sixteen and in two thousand seventeen so this is different though because they've got really good talent on defense as we know and they've got some good young talent on offense but if you're picking as a national pundit or anybody if you're picking washington to be a significant nfc champion contender championship contender. Only tampa bay. Come on you can't be basing that off of the team you watched last year in. This is the point that i wanted to make. We've got to get some realistic perspective. On what last year was last year that was an average football team in a terrible division playing a weakened schedule they were seven and nine. We know the seven wins in the quarterbacks they faced. They were not a good football team last year. They were an improved football team. They were more sound fundamental. Well coached football team and yes. There is young talent on the team. They've been acquiring it on defense specifically the last couple of years and they were improved and was great about last year is while they weren't a good football team they were very average football team They got incredible experience playing a game at the end of the year to win the division on national. Tv in this sunday night. Finale and then they got a chance to face. Tom brady in a playoff game. That's great experience. But if you're picking washington to be a major contender in the nfc eight can't be because of what you saw last year. It has to be something else if you say. I like that team. Last year team won the division last year. That team really pushed tampa last year. Chase young montanez sweat jon allen. You know they were hurt at quarterback instill they won the division. No if you watch that team it was an average football team and by the way defensively improved. But good not great if you think. Washington is a legitimate playoff winning team. Like they're going to qualify for the playoffs is the division champion. And they're going to win a game or two then it's because or it should be because they had a really good off season and you believe in the quarterback. They did have a good off season. This should be the reason that if you're more excited and optimistic about team it's because they literally added good players to almost every need that they had coming off of last season. They needed offensive lineman. They added leno. they added cosmi. They added Flowers they kept sheriff even though it was very expensive. But he's a great culture guy and he's the best offensive lineman they have they have him coming back at wide receiver. You had some issues. You added curtis samuel. You added adam humphreys. You added yami brown. You needed secondary.

Whatever you're going to pay on a loss the big They they have super tight lines. They account for everything and they know everything and if they don't know everything then there's a limit on how much you can bet on that game any weights. Not like you're going to go to vegas and retire on something that they don't have a one hundred percent information on a nfl.

Mybookie dot ag. Use my promo code kevin. Dc a news item from the washington football team today and something a national analyst nfl analyst said about our washington football team in this segment. I'll start with the news item And address it briefly. The washington football team put out a press. Release this morning. That they are going to hold a friday night football practice at fedex field on august. Sixth under the lights. They're giving away twenty five thousand tickets To the i. Twenty five thousand fans that claim the seats. I think it's twenty thousand for the lower bowl than five thousand club level tickets for season ticket. Holders you can you know access that information at washington football dot com slash friday night football in the press statement. The head coach. Ron rivera said quote. It's exciting to be welcoming our fans back into fedex field for the first time this season washington fans are the most passionate in the nfl. And i know our players are going to feed off their energy at practice. We can't wait to embark on the twenty twenty one season with the fans cheering assan at fedex. Field closed quote a jason right. The team president said quote were so excited to welcome our fans back for this unique practice under the lights at fedex field after a season like any other. It's truly a privilege Truly a privileged to share all of the new fan in initiatives and an invigorated team with this many fans and season ticket members altogether. There are so many reasons holding an event like this is important for our team and our fan base so we are looking forward to this being just the beginning of a great season for the team. Our fans closed quote. I think one of the interesting things about this upcoming season. Of course it's the actual football team and whether or not they are a competitive team on the field And i think there's reason to believe that they can be a competitive football team this year but i think the other storyline for this franchise will be the business of the team. Most of you don't care you know i. I understand that it's all about you. Know winning On the field. It is for me too but i do. I'm interested to see whether or not you know this level of optimism. Maybe the highest level of optimism in the football team will translate businesswise. You know we saw recently. And i think i talked about this on monday. The athletic did that fan survey. They had a bunch of questions. asking washington. football fans about various things in one of the questions was how many regular season home games do you plan to attend this year. Sixty five percent of the respondents said zero another twenty nine percent said between one two games. That's unbelievable that is unbelievable that ninety four percent of those responding essentially said yeah. Going to games is not important to me now. It's a weird year because of vid and everybody's going to approach attending live sporting events differently Certainly differently than they used to. So that plays into this but sixty five percents that they're not going to any games. Let's not forget the last time people could go to games. They weren't going at all that final game of twenty nineteen against philadelphia at home was an absolute embarrassment. I mean maybe five thousand washington football team fans at that game. Eighteen to twenty thousand total most of them philadelphia fans. But i also sense that people feel a little bit differently about this particular team. I think it's gonna be interesting to watch two things Beyond the football product which is the most important thing number one is how aggressive they are here over the next several weeks in selling tickets. They've not been in this position For a long time now. I should say that really over the last five years. We have noticed how things have changed. You know. there's no wait list. We've known that for many years. Remember brian latham. Meaning when he took the job team president one of the things that really pissed off. Everybody is when he first admitted that there was no season ticket. Wait list and then. Secondly he said something to the effect of. And i'm paraphrasing here. He said you know when you have tickets. It's best to let people know that you have tickets. And that was not something that i think. Dan snyder bruce allen. Wanted him to say like you know. Hey we've got tickets available. Let's tell everybody that we've got tickets available. Well you know now. They are aggressively letting people know they've got tickets available. You're going to see over the next several weeks. A bunch of marketing. Like you've never seen for tickets. You know single game tickets certainly season tickets but each game that comes up. The chargers game the giants game the first two home games of the year the first two games of the year. You're going to see offers in promotions to get tickets to these games..

"The bucks would not have beaten the clippers with a healthy kawai leonard in a best of seven. Now that's a little bit more debatable. I do think they would've beaten the sons and you can go all the way back and talk about. Ad in the lakers at cetera The the bucks. Were i think fully healthy in this season the fourth best team. I think that the Overall that the nets The clippers and the lakers had the lakers been healthy going into the postseason. The bucks would've fallen in line somewhere after that but still What a win. What a performance by janas. And what a crowd in. What a scene in milwaukee sixty five to seventy thousand people outside the arena in the deer district. That is one of those cities. They love their nba team. They've had success with other teams. Obviously it's a packers town. They had marquette win the national championship in basketball. Back in. nineteen seventy seven with al mcguire as the head coach. That's a long time ago. It had been since one thousand nine hundred seventy one. when lou. al. Cinder with bobby dandridge and oscar robertson beat the celtics to win their last title. Fifty years ago They've always loved the box And you could see the excitement in that town when they when they got to the nba finals even throughout the playoffs scott to the nba finals. And how it exploded In milwaukee Quite seen good series incredible performance by jaanus. i- thought also really drew holiday was exceptional throughout the postseason for them as well and phoenix. I was wrong. Man i was wrong on two fronts when it came to milwaukee and phoenix number. One i predicted phoenix would win the series and five way off. I certainly felt after the first two games that we were in pretty good shape there You know they they control they. They really one those first two games. Pretty handily And then milwaukee obviously turns around wins four straight and the other thing early on in the post season. I thought i was watching the same jaanus that i'd seen go out against toronto Miami last year toronto two years ago where when the game slow down in the focus was on him defensively. He didn't have many answers. If the game was played. Sort of uptempo will they figured it out and he figured it out and They are champions because of it. And he's also while one of the most likeable atheletes from athletes from afar.

It's kevin sheehan here to tell you more about a product that i've become a huge fan of that. His magic spoon cereal. You know they sent me the first bundle of cereals. I don't know six seven eight months ago something like that. I fell in love with a couple of the flavors. The cocoa in particular was really good.

"bucks" Discussed on The Kevin Sheehan Show
"Don't want it. You don't meet it but you're gonna get it anyway. Kevin sheehan show is kevin books for a hand century. The walkie books. Nba champions once again and the nba season. Which many of aren't totally unhappy about has finally come to an end in thrilling fashion in historic fashion. When you consider the jaanus attentive compo close out individual performance last night in milwaukee on the show today me And andrew. Brandt will join us andrew. Of course the longtime packers team president and league executive I wanted to get andrew on the show to talk about the aaron rodgers situation. And we'll get his thoughts on the washington football team as well but andrew. Brandt will be on the show with us in a little bit. But i wanna start with the nba finals Last night was really quite the individual. Show the honest put on It was an historic performance for sure. Fifty points fourteen rebounds. Five blocked shots in the game Incredible defense all night long and milwaukee closes out phoenix one. Oh five ninety eight to win the series four games to too many people calling it the greatest close out. Nba finals game in history by anybody. it was great. It's up there. It wasn't magic. Johnson from nineteen eighty magic's performance in game six in the spectrum in philadelphia when kareem abdul-jabbar was out didn't even make the trip in magic as a rookie lined up at centre and scored forty. Two points had fifteen rebounds seven assists That's the greatest close out in the most iconic performance in nba finals history in terms of a closeout game. He was a rookie. It was on the road against that loaded. Seventy sixers team without without the captain in kareem abdul-jabbar but that aside what a what a game by janas last night and i'll start this segment by just talking a little bit about the game. In general first of all you start with the honest in performance and you can look at the fifty points in the fourteen rebounds in the five block shots and you know the kind of game. He played in forty two minutes last night. He was sensational. But the difference in the game last night was seventeen of his fifty points. Came from the free throw line on just nineteen attempts. Janas was struggling throughout the postseason shooting. Free throws this was a major problem for him and he had his best free throw night of the postseason eighty nine and a half percent from the line. Seventeen of nineteen in game five. He was four for eleven right. Thirty six point four percent in game four. He was four for eight. You know this was a guy that had actually started to shoot. Free throws better in this series than he had against the hawks or against the nets or even miami Actually i think he was decent against miami. But this was a major problem for milwaukee was jaanus at the free throw line. And if you're honest had a good night for him in the postseason last night call it ten of nineteen just over fifty percent which would have been good for him in this postseason in the last series he shot forty nine point one percent in the brooklyn series. He shot forty two point. Five percents From the free throw line so if he has a normal twenty twenty one playoff free throw line percentage for him and he goes ten of nineteen taken. Literally you're in overtime you know depending on how the game plays out. Maybe phoenix wins. That was the big difference in the game last night. There were several things about the game that i wanted to. I want to mention here But him going. Seventeen of nineteen from the free. Throw line in. The biggest game of his career was clutch. The fifty and fourteen is debatably. The greatest game he's ever played. He's had a lot of great regular season games and he said some great playoff games. Remember in game seven when durant was going for forty nine in the brooklyn series. He went for forty and thirteen on the road. In a seventh and deciding game that game to me being the most compelling game and the postseason the one fifteen one eleven overtime game seven Against brooklyn we're kevin durant. Had an all time performance himself but seventeen of nineteen. You start there because the fifty and fourteen is all time you know. It's it's way up there. But he got to fifty because he was seventeen of nineteen from the free throw line if he had been ten of nineteen or nine of nineteen like he had been throughout the postseason. He ends up with forty one points or forty points and they may lose that game and they may be heading back to phoenix for a seventh and deciding game. He was great. There's no doubt about it. He got some help not the kind of help that i thought he would get. Drew holiday phenomenal defensively. As he's been he was this. He and middleton obviously were the two players that have been right there with the honest throughout this postseason holiday. Very streaky offensive. Leaves twelve twenty in the last game last night. Four of nineteen but his defense. Constant middleton didn't have a great game offensively. You know you would have thought going into it. They need middleton to really be there because the attention will be on. Jaanus middleton six of thirteen seventeen points five turnovers in the game. His defense though was outstanding. I thought brook lopez and bobby portis were huge for milwaukee last night brook lopez in the third quarter when yang went for twenty of the teams thirty five In the third quarter brook lopez had big time shots in that quarter ended up with ten points eight rebounds in twenty seven minutes on five of ten from the floor lopez doing it sort of in crafty fashion around the rim and then a power dunk with some of his length and look diplo. Pez is pink. Frilly good player in this league. Let's not forget that you know brook. Lopez has averaged many times during the course of his career. Well over twenty points per game And i thought he was outstanding. In you know the guy that milwaukee and milwaukee fans fell in love with during this postseason bobby portis really came up big former wizard briefly wizard. He was in the game for twenty three minutes and scored sixteen points on six of ten from the floor to of five from behind the arc. That was to me the key For milwaukee beyond the free throw shooting from attended compo and that was lopez in mortices contributions. they essentially combined for twenty six points. Eleven rebounds from that center position. Obviously jaanus plays a lot of center himself on on on different possessions But the bucks played. Well now. Flip it to the other side phoenix I thought it was just a terrible night for devon booker and really a shame look he is young and he is on the rise at twenty four years. Old devon booker is going to be a future top five ish. You know no worse than top ten ish kind of player in the league He had a rough night after putting together. Back to back games of forty two and forty in this series And maybe You know taking some criticism for not really distributing the ball or making that that key pass in games. Five in games four Last night i thought he deferred way too much. He still led the team in total field goal attempts but i thought booker really shrunk from the occasion now. He could have been exhausted. A lot of those players in the series were exhausted But i thought last night. They needed devon booker. Maybe not to get forty but they needed twenty five to thirty from booker Booker did the best he could do. Defensively And i think his defense is a little bit underrated But offensively he deferred too much in the fourth quarter unless less it was at the very end of a shot clock or in transition. And i thought you know he should have been hunting shots more. I didn't think phoenix did a good job offensively all night long with ball movement. It just didn't moved much. It's stuck with paul and booker chris. Paul kept him in the game with a phenomenal second quarter when they were down thirteen. And then they outscored milwaukee thirty one to thirteen in the second period. He finished with twenty six. I think chris. Paul didn't shoot enough look. They were very much reduced last night by very good defensive team To a lot of ice. Oh and two man pecan roll. The ball did not move. Like it has throughout the postseason for phoenix. But i thought paul especially on some of those switches could've gotten to his spot consistently and take even more shots you know they..

"In the finals and forced the game. Seven was when the pistons did it back in two thousand five perk. I can tell you as someone who is flying between detroit and san antonio over and over and over again during that series it was quite a thing when they forced the whole series back to san antonio now the spurs did into winning then but still how do the sun's approach this game so they can be like those pistons and not be done tonight. I think is all about their mindset. Obviously right and then you wanna come in on the road and you wanna take the crowd out of and i the good thing with the signs is that they had their game for experience. Right were they were up and they saw that they could play in this arena battle with the milwaukee bucks it would have been a different story was to back to back blowouts in game during a game four but the fact that they gain confidence in his bill is all the sons need to go out there and play style game meaning. No turnover was play agenda free basketball on both ends of the floor and play with their sense of urgency. Now with that being said. I feel like all the pressure is on the milwaukee bucks tonight so coming into this arena when you look at the milwaukee bucks. All the pressure was on the phoenix suns again. Fire milwaukee has all the pressure you at home. You must close this out right so you coming into this game and you have to have that mindset. If you're the bugs that we're not trying to go to a game seven we're not trying to go back to phoenix with. His young is comfortable. it will mikhail. Bridges is shooting. You know night and day is so we're not trying to go there. I mean depress to be a little bit hard to you. Sit up here and let me do the people. Because this is the truth to your point you cannot say that the pressure is all on the walk with the president and finished. You wondering why the pressure is really phoenix. Because the milwaukee bucks have already proven that they can win in phoenix also so just because.

"I think that they would love to get you honest back as soon as possible. Probably the biggest reason why they're underdogs against the sun's going in in the betting markets is that we don't know what you honest status is but i thought it was great to see those other guys step up and sorta show everyone that it's the bucks are not just jaanus and some some scrubs or whatever you know sometimes. We had the tendency to think about on a team that has like. Oh they don't have a big three they don't even have a big to. It's just honest. Some guys it's like no it's like they have a really good cast of supporting players around him and they're really like the fit is really good and i think they complement each other really well and they played tough defense. And that's the thing that i think also has been overshadowed a little bit in this bucks running but maybe we're starting to appreciate it is. This team is really really good defensively and they have a lot of guys that they can kind of throw at you in different matchups. That can frustrate opponents. Yeah absolutely. I think you know the the one thing that is sort of interesting about the bucks without jaanus is how their strategy changed and and it worked and that's like i think too often when that when that happens it's like oh well that's the star isn't even needed or whoever is missing isn't even needed because they made it doing theory queueing theory. Yeah and it's like no. It's just it was good like it was a good strategy to change what they were doing. You know brook. Lopez doesn't normally just occupy the paint. He's he's out on the a wing he's taking three pointers. Maybe he shouldn't be but like they did change honest driving. He basically turned into shack. And that that worked. And i i think that that. Actually that wrinkle. How lopez plays in how he plays at the rim without him was was kind of the most interesting. But i think they wouldn't be here if it was just honest and i think the one man army is like true. Just one star teams. Don't make it this far Even if that one stars at full capacity we see that over and over this is always been true and teams can step up. Look what you know. The clippers were able to do in a brief window without kawhi and of course the team middleton can step up and have a huge game but we but we've also seen games were middleton's been bad and you want your full roster and certainly your best player the guy who scored e combined points in two gains Against the samis this regular season to be out there but can they win a game or two like. Let's say he misses the first three games. Can they win one or two. I don't like that would surprise. Anyone would put the bucks in a great..
"bucks" Discussed on First Take
"Hello hello. What's going on everybody. Welcome to take. it's friday. We made it. I'm charlie are joined by keyshawn. Johnson we also have freddie coleman joining us. How's everybody feeling this morning. we're good. I'm good. I'm going to get the weekend going me too. I got a barbecue. Tacoma house waiting for me man. I'm all set okay. Any any like dish that really cycles pork chops you put grew grow chicken. Then that's going to be a good barbecue with some fixing next to it. So that's what we got going on this weekend. So freddie on my show is more than we were trying to. I was trying to get them. Explain to me the difference between a grill out grilling barbecue. I from the west coast. We call it. Barbecue right people on the east coast call cookouts grilling and i'm trying to understand the difference. There's no difference. There's no difference if you're outdoors in your cooking. It's all good so there's no difference it's a whole west coast east coast south north thing. That's all that is is the same thing. Okay all right well you know. It was eating good last night. The milwaukee bucks who would step up in janas absence in game five everybody brook lopez's throwing it back to his big men days on the nets towering inside the pain dominating for a playoff career high thirty three points on fourteen of eighteen shooting. Meanwhile bobby portis junior. Chris middleton jrue holiday. Finish the twenty to twenty five and twenty six points respectively hawks starting bucks in front the hallway. One twenty three to one twelve the final was milwaukee. Now one game away from the finals victory. This respect me to do that. No for me is just figuring out the game within a game find a way to get myself involved but also others knowing that you know the folk points from the meal. A lot more In giralda did you did a great job. You know sending its home. I got himself going to got other guys involved bobby But then myself not. Just try to you know. Take my spot. Fine racket attacking aggressive Said you vanish. It is a must win game for us. And that's what it comes down to That's what this game. means If you drop it as we did tonight and this must for us you know so so one game season for us so we know we have to do and you know we gotta get back home and get ourselves ready to take care of business at home. Expect us to respond a died. Everybody going up through milwaukee their starting five step outscored. The hawks starting five by thirty three points including thirty advantage in the paint and even without jaanus bucks ended up outrebounding. The hawks by nineteen. Bobby portis who started in you. Honest as place had twenty two points and eight rebounds eight playoff career high. I mean honestly. Last night i felt like oprah like you get points you get points you get four of the five. Starters had twenty two points or more last night for the bucks. So that's something to be proud of. So freddie let's start with you here should the bucks shouldn't earn sorry. Should the series be over at this point. I wanted to go game seven. But i think is going to end in sixteen because the milwaukee bucks what they were able to do last night and i don't wanna be that prisoner the moment but if they play like that the atlanta hawks have no chance of beating them. Especially when we don't believe that trae young at least. I don't believe that trae young. It's going to be there for game six. He tried to. He tried to give it a go before game five. That ankle is just not responding that for this just not responding but this milwaukee bucks team. They played with an attitude last night. And here's something else. Why believe this is going to be over and six. There's that team called the phoenix suns. That is getting more than enough rest once again waiting for another opponent. We saw how that works and then against the denver nuggets when they closed out the lakers. We saw how that worked for the los angeles clippers when they closed out the denver nuggets. They did not fool around by allowing the clippers. The push them to a game seven if you are the atlanta hawks and you know you play like that even without jaanus. You're gonna make this series over. And i think they're going to do it again on the road of course a lot more comfort playing at home but now going on the road and knowing that man if we get into a game seven a winner take all even if we win that we're going to be mentally and physically worn out and playing a team in phoenix at his hot right now. That is mentally and physically rested. If you're the atlanta hawks. You can't fool around. And they know that in the game six by the milwaukee bucks rubicam fool around. That's what i believe. I think this series is going to be over at six. I wanna game. I love game. Sevens by the milwaukee bucks know that if we fool around we may win this series but we did not win the championship that we want to get to. And i think that's why they're gonna put it away and six when saturday night rolls around if you the milwaukee bucks freddie and you're looking ahead to nba final against the phoenix suns. You've already lost because you're not paying attention to the atlanta hawks. Going home in their own stadium. You know how jacked up hotlanta gobi. Where the trae young plays a not. They beat the they. Beat the milwaukee bucks. I'll trae young in game four at home when they had their top dog. I can't see no way possible. That the milwaukee books can duplicate what they did last night in game five again in game six when all four of those guys and five of those guys stepping up to the plate. I can't see what brooklyn brook lopez's all of a sudden tests thirty plus points. Yeah middleton may do will but do you expect jrue holiday the drop twenty five points to set the tone again. Do you expect for bobby. Portis to play the way that he did on the road in hotlanta against the atlanta hawks team by nate mcmillan. Who's going to make that forty eight hour adjustment. he's not. He's going to out coach coach. But this time around the smart thing that milwaukee did in his getting is pounded the ball down slope. but we haven't seen them do that on a consistent basis so there's nothing there that tells me that the series is over. It's gonna go to game. Seven is going back to milwaukee and again if the bucks are looking ahead to the signs. They've already lost because they lost the team. That's in front of him paying a team to attention paying attention to a team that can potentially have wrist makes no sense at all. I think they should be looking ahead. Because the u the milwaukee bucks why are you gonna extend yourself when you can put an opponent away because the ultimate goal is to win a championship. And i know you gotta go things in incremental steps. I clearly understand where you're coming from keyshawn. But if you're the milwaukee bucks you gotta say this but we got to put this team away in game six. Of course. No one's expecting bobby bobby portis experience again like we saw in game five when he was able to do the milwaukee bucks and by the way brook lopez. Maybe look pretty smart. I said yes they. The most important player was brook. Lopez's milwaukee bucks. He had three points for the first time. Freddy coleman's life. He was smarter than the average bear. So i'm not expecting that to happen in the game six but i'm also not expecting that the atlanta hawks are gonna be able to hopefully suit the ball. Better in that game walkies defense has been really really good now. Bogged out of it has been able to knock down downsides but kevin hurt her. He's in the punk right now. John cows he's in a funk right now. Clint cappella had his soul taken away from him last night by brook lopez. That's not going to happen again. But i'm not expecting that the bucks come down that far and that the hawks the game six everything you just said it's not gonna happen. You don't expect for brook lopez's to do this. You don't expect for them to do that. Then how are they gonna win in atlanta. Because i expect for the atlanta falcons to go back to the drawing board. Make the necessary adjustments game.
