"On Billy Donovan becoming the new coach in Chicago to 43 1 57 as the head of coach of the Thunder. We know what he did at Florida. He's gotta rebuilding job here, though, in Chicago. He does that mean the Bulls hired Donovan to be their new head coach Yesterday. The 55 year old Donovan was a hot commodity bad after leaving, Okay. See a few weeks ago, supposedly numerous MBA tried to hire him. And who wouldn't want to hire a baby? He was coach of the year this past season. He was co coach of the year with Budenholzer from the box. But Chicago details they missed playoff missed the playoffs for the past five seasons. But Donovan, I gotta tell you he's walking into some pretty good young talent with the Bulls exact was mean about well. Murray's A great young point exactly, means another one that I could score 30. It is asleep right now. They also have Laurie Morgan, so I think it's a good It's a good move for Donovan is definitely good move in Chicago.

So this is a turning point for the Celtics and Are they going to fall apart or just going to be a rallying cry for them? Because there is one thing that's for certain the Celtics are a team right now. That can't close their close, but they can't cause it struggled to close against the Toronto Raptors. And they've struggled mightily to close against the Miami heat in games one and two of the Eastern Conference finals. And that is the reason why they're currently down, and that extends To the sidelines next since the coach Brad Stevens. You talk about Mike Budenholzer and some mistakes he made with the Bucks.

"Performance beyond disappointing Milwaukee's postseason performance beyond disappointing But the M V P is about the totality of the season and as a result, the honest deserved to win Despite Kendrick Perkins was saying last night Perk was on with Zach Gelb here on CBS Sports Radio, and he made the claim that a he doesn't think Yonas should have won the M V P and B. He thinks the bucks are a better team without you. Honest. Take a listen to this. What happens if you take Yanis off the off the butts? Do you think that's still playoff team? They will be. There will be a top five things. Really. You think they'd be a top five team? In the east. They would. Wow. So you where would you put you put them in the back in order. So you got Toronto? You have obviously the Celtics. You got Miami and then you think they're there right after there. It will be so they often runs better without young. Oh, come on perk. Mon. Their offense runs better without Johannes Really perk. I mean, what are we basing that off of? Basing that off of a few quarters against the heat in Game four, where Yannis gets hurt in the bucks, craw, clawback and win in overtime and they don't get swept. I mean, really, though. We're basing that off 34 quarters. In Game four against the heat when they're down three hour that the offense runs better without Yanis. Now I agree. I think Mike Budenholzer did not do a good job adjusting. I don't think the Bucks offense ran well with the honest this postseason. Obviously, it did not. Come on. They're better Without Johannes. They'd be a top five team without Johannes in the East. Chris Middleton, Eric Bledsoe, Brook Lopez that I mean that team is is a top five team in the East. Maybe there's still a playoff team. I would I would buy that. But top five perk and better without Yonas talk about being a victim of the moment. Come on, man. 855 to 1 to four. CBS is your number. That's 855 to 1 to 42 7 James. Others We see you winding up. We'll get you another side with your reaction. The Lakers as I said, I am anointing them. Once again, it is their championship to lose. It is a golden opportunity for LeBron James. He has a look in his eyes, and he's peeved. They didn't win the MVP. I hear LeBron's complaints, and I do think it is crazy. He has not won the most valuable Player award since 2013. But The fact is, is anticlimactic as it is to say. Especially given how the post season ended for them. The Bucks were the better team in the regular season. Any honest was the better player in the regular season. Maybe that's not what it how it would have gone if this season continued as normal me didn't have, you know a five month hiatus between the end of your season and you know the playing games, but That's what we had. And Johannes came way with it. And I was just I was just floored. I was floored at perk last night, saying he thinks the bucks are a better team without Johannes wanted a compote, please.

"It in Milwaukee. Mike Budenholzer looks like he's going to be returning as the coach next season, and many were pointing fingers at Boudin holes are for Things such as questionable rotations and playing yon is 36 or fewer minutes a night. Do you believe Budenholzer is the right person to lead the book's going forward? I mean, this is like the whole perfect is the enemy of good thing. How many coaches are true? The elite? I think there's only a few just like there's only a few NBA players who you put on a certain level like me, it's LeBron. So why Durant When he's healthy. Curries proven himself. I think Dodgers could be working his way into that group. But it's it's a short list and You know with the coaches. Do you get rid of a very good coach because he's flawed because here's the thing. Budenholzer is flawed. Ultimately, he's flawed. I I had doubts about Milwaukee going into the postseason for three reasons. Number one, You know, did did they have the guy? You know, that would would be ableto hurt you if you took Johannes away. Number two. Johannes, you know, doesn't have the ability to get his own shot, and that limits him as far as being truly the most valuable player in the league or the best plan Lee and number three Boom Hosers teams have come up short in the playoffs. Now I pattern When you go back to Atlanta, he'd never yon ist in Atlanta. But that was a team that was very, very good over the course of the regular season consistently and usually got embarrassed in the playoffs. So when that keeps happening Part of you goes, Yeah. You've got to get rid of this guy and switch him out. The next question is then who comes in? That's better and that that's the tough spot. Milwaukee's in a very tough spot because they are very good, like you know, objectively. They were a very good basketball team this year. There's no reason to expect if they feel the similar team. They won't have similar results, but they're not good enough. They're not good enough. And that goes for the coach that goes for the roster. Does that mean you switch just to switch? Probably not. But it is it is. Ah! Illustrative of their overall situation. But ultimately I just think boot Noser has proven himself as a good coach in the N B. A. And there's not exactly like somebody that's just going to come in and change all those those other situations I just mentioned. I think the most important thing for them is adding another proven place. Another. Speaking of coaching.

"Hey, there because it's eastern conference maybe I want to go coach Chicago Bulls because I could be halfway decent and continue to make the playoffs every year but man that organization is really set up for the future and listen you It feels like it's I feel like I wasn't in the ME I. Don't know how much money was there. I don't know how it was said I don't know if he said something along the lines of an expiration date on coaches and we already gave you this now if we do an extension or then. We feel like your voice can grow stale as you go forward. But so then they me for two years as I do this, I don't know I feel like it too bad move for billy. Donovan I. Feel like he's really had some serious traction. They're now that Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant have have left. Feels like he can really coach now and I liked to these guys coach i. like way these guys played I feel like it's a mistake we'll see what happens though. We will. He was my pick for coach the year That's one of the things I put my twitter scall- Mick, the NBA. The coaching business has always unfair but business off-season season seemed like it was unusually harsh with you know billy dee, this seems like obviously partially his decision to other examples that come to mind nate McMillan. In Indiana over the four years he was there. They were a playoff team every year this year, they didn't have arguably their best player D'Amato bonus. They played a very good Miami Heat team. It was a competitive series. It was I guess competitive as a sweep can be he gets cans and then Jack Vaughn we talked about the job he didn't Brooklyn you know he he doesn't. get a he. He did get an opportunity to interview I guess what Steve Nash Gets The job Jock has to stay on as an assistant. So you know it's something you and I anticipate it on the show scale, but it doesn't change the fact that coaching in the NBA is a brutal business. I, bring it up because of how we started the show the fact that Milwaukee. People asking the question is Mike Wooden Holzer who has the best regular season record in the league over the last couple of years on roster that I think has a lot of flaws in fact sale if I were to rank all the rosters of the conference semifinals teams by talent, I would put Milwaukee I think they're least talented team top to bottom in the conference semi finals. So I bring it up because it is an unfair business and as you know the knee jerk reaction anytime, something doesn't go perfectly from a lot of NBA fans in some of our colleagues in the media as well as well. They should fire the coach..

"Extension that they gave blood. So in one sense, they spin it and they say, well, we couldn't go into the tax with Brogden but they also sometimes when it's a story from their slant, they ignore the fact that they gave bledsoe that extra money. So I'm not I don't know how think about all this or if you will leave because of all this but I do think. In these conversations when it comes to what you want us to do, you want us to sign all the macos on the team to give you the Super Mash we'll do that, but whatever has to happen. We need to make sure we get him locked in for six years because then you can dump any pick you want or swaps that you want more than likely, they won't be valuable anyways. They only have to the editor. Komo's now Jaanus the big one and the his brother, and then the Lakers might have been one step ahead scale they already signed cost us I think he's in a two way sitting in street clothes at the end the Lakers fan. So keep an eye on that situation is well. One final piece of news this morning scowl before we get back to the game especially, the Boston Toronto game we'll get a more integrate the great game six from last night. This is also from the report this morning from from the athletic, and this is something you nailed this gallons finally come out a few days after the facts, the Oklahoma City Thunder, they mutually parted ways with billy Donovan a couple days ago you and I wondered. Mutual parting or was it a hey, we don't want back well according to strontium. It seems like, okay. See did want billy Donovan back they offered him a contract extension with two guaranteed years. I seems to me the way that's where to maybe non-guaranteed years or option years on the back end of that scale. But that was prior to the NBA restart in late July that Donovan turned it down. He didn't accept the deal and he said, let's wait until after the season to discuss it. So it seems like at one point, a billy Donovan could've locked himself in financially for at least two more years in. Okay. See he said no, and then after the season, it does seem like the the parting of ways in okay. See Amicable and at least somewhat mutual. He didn't want to go back and coach those young guys with Chris Paul there even if we're just two more years. That seems weird to me. Why would you WanNa leave that organization everything that they build all the over achieving they've. Achieved at this point. I don't why why not just take the two years you you. If you play well another year, you can get another contract extension after that I don't know what the money is and I don't know what's out there. But I know one thing the grass is not always greener on the other side and just because they show you respect does it mean you actually get respect when you go some place else? Now you're right, and that's one of the more stable franchises in the league is you know San Prestige been there a long time I think almost fifteen years at this point in charge he's done as well as any executive in the league really since they moved on from PJ Carlesimo they've only had two coaches now scholar Scott Brooks for a long time a lot of success there and then Billy Donovan the past five years so. You're you're right. It's I'm sure billy is going to get wined and dined by some of these other organizations but I'm guessing or in fact, I know most of the other organizations if not all the ones that he is going to potentially look at to be their next coach have not had the stability that the thunder of had over the last ten or fifteen years. So let's let's just put our our billy dee cappon. What job is better than that job like I'm like this be hundred percent honest and everything with ownership players expectations. How is there a better job than that job that's available right now It's a great question. It depends on your perspective. Now, what we don't know at what was said behind closed doors if SAM. Pristine. The Front, Office know. Casey said look we're going to try to trade Chris. Paul we're going to try to trade Chris. Paul and we're going to bottom out of the point. I made yesterday I feel strongly about this is. They are in the Western Conference, which obviously makes it more difficult to be a perennial playoff team which they have been But I think there's too much young talent on the roster for them to pick on the top three or five or something just based on guilty Alexander. Lugansky door was a revelation in playoffs. Bazeley looks like he's going to be a very good player schreuder still relatively young they have a boatload of graphics I. So I, bring it up because you know look maybe they don't resign gallantry maybe they try to move on from Stephen Adams but I still think they're going to be at least competitive indecent. With a lot of upside in the future. So my guess and this is just a guess cal. This may have been contractual really none of this year I love come back. Would you gave me a four or five deal? Excuse me a five year deal I believe it was initially i. need a four or five year extension because we're going to go down and go through rebuild and all that the team said we'll give you too and maybe that was just you know billy his agent didn't feel like that was the right number. They didn't feel like they could I kinda come out of this soon enough especially if they trade Chris Paul. It's a mistake I'm telling you right now I'm here on Scallon Pals. It might not be a financial mistake might not be a financial mistake this this move right here. It's a mistake on billy. Donovan. Part like this is a mistake you roll with these young guys. You've already built some clout with and then you have a good year you might not even make the playoffs next year if they treat Chris Paul and no gala, Nari, they'd probably won't make the playoffs thanks year but you could start this rebuilding process and you have all. These young picks and you can get back to getting your hands in the mud which is important. I. Think this is a mistake I don't I don't know unless he's like I want to go to the eastern conference I can make some real..

"Of our show Ryan Scalp rainy scale we had to terrific games in the NBA last night One was really a game for the ages between Boston and Toronto that was double overtime win by the Raptors one, twenty, five, one, twenty, two. So now we know there will be game seven in the Eastern Conference semifinals tomorrow night that game is at nine pm also in the late game. The clippers dominated defensively they held the Denver Nuggets to just eighty-five points led by Leonard and scale. That series looks like it may end tomorrow night as well with the LA having a three one lead. Now, there's some interesting comments from Michael Porter Junior year boy young star off the bench for the Denver Nuggets. We'll get into that as well because that raised some eyebrows overnight. Scale. We're I want to start the show show. We'll get into the games here in a minute. Later in the show, we'll talk about the huge game in the western conference tonight between the rockets and L. A. Game four in that series with Lakers leading to one. But we're I want to start the show today scale is with some news. I guess it's breaking news. It wasn't really a surprise to me. I don't think it should have been a conversation, but that is a report this morning from Shamsher, Rana from the athletic that Mike wouldn't holzer will remain as the bucks coach scale. I understand any time a team loses unexpectedly in the playoffs. Somebody is going to look to blame someone but to me was shocking. Reports that might be on the hot seat given what he's done the last two years Milwaukee. WHO DECIDES IT? That's news I mean, I know we're talking about it and I think maybe it's something that we do have the address because every time you hear this guy reports at this coaches safe. It usually means that the coach is not safe somewhere somewhere down the road, the coach like on probation and I don't know other than I. I don't love the way that boot Holzer coaches. In the playoffs but also say that I'm not sure that I'm sold on on Eric Bledsoe and he had a point guard that could make great decisions or if you had more players that can make great decisions, I think his system would work and it would work really well around Janas so not sure why we're reporting I. I wish I wish he would have reported it and saying like. For for those who are thinking about Putin Holzer maybe being on the hot seat, there is absolutely no truth to that. Whatsoever. This shouldn't even be news that's. Shamsher not rea- reported by. The idea that we're talking about it makes me think that coach might be on probation next year. Double secret probation scale not nobody knows about until you fired. I've actually been there myself. It's not a lot a lot of fun to be on on that. The other reporting from. The story, this morning that was interesting I not surprising scale away this guy has struggled in the playoffs. The last two years that is Milwaukee Bucks Point Guard Eric Bledsoe after two subpar playoff performances in row will be on the trading block this off season as the bucks look to shop him an upgrade at that position. Yeah. So the only guy I can continue to focus on his drew holiday, but you tell me if looking because you're you're much better at this than I am looking at New Orleans would they think that they would be willing to move holiday and what would it cost and do the bucks have what it takes? No no they don't and that's why. I'm not trying to pick on the box I said that on yesterday show I'll continue to say everybody wonders how do you help you honest? Honest help how the books insure that. Yana. Stays in Milwaukee and it's not going to be easy scale and I say that because they don't have very many if any good young players on the roster, they don't have a great draft picks situation as long as is in Milwaukee that means their own picks aren't very valuable because they're going to be picking twenty-five every year he individuals issue that good. At least in the regular season, so I bring it up because what's in it? For New Orleans the same thing I said you know yesterday about okay. Say With Chris Paul, in mind that New Orleans already has Lonzo ball young point, guard who has struggled obviously in the restart, but they have high hopes for him. A holiday is more versatile than blood so he can play on off the ball. Better size on, they're both very good defenders but holiday is certainly more consistent reliable player. So I just don't know like looking at the boatload of draft picks new. Orleans has coming from the Lakers and pick swaps and all the young talent on the roster especially with ball there in New Orleans like what does Milwaukee have that not only New Orleans but also would want and as a fifteen plus your executive I can't answer that question I know it's not what bucks fans want to hear but I just have to be on a scale mock. You doesn't have a lot of trade assets. Forget forget. Drew Holiday Right like forget picking and choosing. Does anybody want Eric bledsoe this? Is there a team out there? I would not. I think he's going to move the needle because that's obviously we probably most people know that that's not going to happen. But like are the knicks interested in getting Eric bledsoe top defensive player and they listen they might not have any since to give up or maybe it's A pick or whatever are there any teams out there connects had the worst point guard situation in the history of the NBA this season. Wouldn't they be interested in Eric Bledsoe he liked to only that the only place that team would maybe be interested in a guy like bledsoe and maybe be interested in his seventeen in one thousand, nine, million dollars. Well scales. He asked me the tough questions here on Scallon Pals. I gotta get my thinking cap on to make sure I answer them accurately as I always do scale to answer your.

Right now We're talking to Mike wicket, download his podcast Wicked on Wisconsin for everything. Wisconsin sports related pro or college, keeping it with Yanis. What's up with the minutes Because I think you know we are like like like like we all watch the last dance right? Michael Jordan would have physically fought Phil Jackson had he been playing him 34 minutes in pivotal playoff games. I understand that the ankles botheryou but man, everybody's dealing with some sort of injury. What's been the backlash to for some inexplicable reason Johannes is playing 33 minutes in deciding playoff games. It makes absolutely no sense and if they don't get out of this round, Mike Budenholzer is going to get fired for that. You know, they asked him. What adjustments can you make after Game two, and his answer was well, we just kind of do what we do. Budenholzer is notorious for winning 60 games in the regular season and taking exactly what he does in the regular season and not change get in the playoffs, like Harry could imagine if you're on the goal line, and everybody knows you're going to run the ball four straight times into the middle when a simple pitch out to the right would get you in the end zone. But what do you do? Because you're so stubborn. That's Mike Budenholzer. He loves a big bench. He loves everybody get in minutes. If I have to see Sterling Brown play another. Everybody's not much in these postings. Divide to see Dante Di Vincenzo and Kyle Korver is huge minutes and the honest is on the bench. I'm going to throw my shoe at the television. It's unacceptable that the MVP isn't playing 40 minutes. Plus, it's unacceptable that his Robin Chris Middleton isn't playing 40 minutes plus In these games, and now look with their down 03 No one that we're done this before. No one's ever come back from three Get swept. Putt is gone If they lose Game five if they lose this in five What is going to be gone? I think the only way blood keeps his job is if they force a game seven. Which that's not happening. I was just going to ask you. What do you think happens to Bud? Who do bucks fans want like Do you want Ty Lou? Like Who do you think can get you over the hump? Because this situation feels a lot like Mark Jackson and Golden State. They all right, Mark Jackson got them to this point. But now you need that Steve Kerr to help get you over the hump. If but is gone and I'm with you. I don't think he's going to be the coach next season. Because now you've got to try to convince Johannes to come back. Who do you think they target? Sam Cassell is the name the Bucks. Hands Love. The alien people are big fans of Sam Cassell from what he did with the Big Three and they had a run in 2001. When they took the seven day I 76 years to the break, and then Scott Williams was kicked out of Game seven and and Iverson and company went on and played the Lakers in the finals. People love Sam Cassell in Milwaukee's royalties Part of that, you know, you know the team with Ray Allen and the Big dog People loved Sam Cassell. He is a name Sam Cassell going to get the honest today. I have no idea. I think Jonah's pulls a lot more strings than a lot of other. I think he pulled strings like LeBron does. And then you pull strings like Kevin Durant pull strings like Kyrie. Irving, I think A honest did lot Chris Middleton to get a huge contract like he did last off season. Chris Middleton's not in Milwaukee, so I think a lot of this will be you. Who do you want to be the head coach? We want us to talk to. We want to consider your options. I don't think Johannes has gone even if they lose tomorrow. But I do think that long term they're going to want his input on who's coming back. That leads me to the next question. We're talking to Mike Wicked download his podcast Wicked. On Wisconsin. There is a history in the MBA of dominant player like Johannes and a small market Once you hit free agent going to a big market, how fearful our bucks fans that Johannes is going to go to Miami or l A or one of those big markets. Terrified, 100% terrified because they've been so obscure. They've been in the box fans have always had the 12th pick in the draft. You're not bad enough most year in number six Or the number two pick, and they had Jabari Parker that didn't work out. You're not good enough to be consistently deep in the playoffs. We're always the 80 fired in that that round for so many years. Be honest. Put him on the map. The honest is the reason that Spicer Forum is as was built two years ago. It was completed two years ago. He is the biggest thing in Milan, literally and figuratively. It is the biggest attraction in Wisconsin, not named Aaron Rodgers.

But last night On most Wagner and we've seen the honest answer component on the bubble, pick a fight with Dante Hall of the Nets, and then picked a fight with also Mo Wagner.

So you're going to be a back to back M v p Award winner? Maybe trying to pick up the intensity in the bubble, which I could appreciate on DH. Maybe because you know, everyone's saying your season doesn't mean anything until yeah. Get to the embassy finals and really your season starts the postseason. Maybe you just get in and see that that's finally coming. But for Johannes last night, what he was doing was absolutely foolish, and I don't get it and even after the game He realized that it was a mistake and what he did. Terrible action. Um, never go back. Turn back time and club XL playing. I wouldn't do it. But then they know human making state's got out of
