"Hear you're going to hear a lot about an extension, this is still more likely, I believe that he opts out and re signs worse signing any kind of extension or anything like that. I don't think it's going to be a true extension that he signed. Some people who said maybe ops in and then extends off that. I mean, it's certainly possible. And I say it all the time with Kyrie Irving. Don't rule anything out because anybody who tells you they know exactly what he's going to do is wrong. He just doesn't. That's not how he operates. He doesn't operate through the media that way or through people that way. He doesn't really send those indications himself. And as it stands today, he's the one who for about another two, three weeks. He controls, he has all the power here, because he has the player option. Once it's out of that, then it's him in the nets. Or a lot more on equal footing as far as where they want to go with the next deal. But yeah, my guess is for what most casual fans will care about. Carrie Irving will be playing basketball for the Brooklyn Nets next year. Most likely, that's where we're going to land. And that's, you know, it makes sense from the net's perspective, and then they just got to hope that everything works out. That he's available for more games, certainly than he was this year. Let's head down south. Let's go to Miami. Duncan Robinson. Talked a little bit about getting benched. I mean, he said, not playing, it sucks. Yep. Pretty true. So Duncan Robinson, he went, regular season, he played this season he averaged 26 minutes per game. Playoffs, let's see. Let me see if I can find his playoff averages this season. Bottom line, he didn't play very much at all in the last year. Basketball reference, right? Yeah. Right on that. It's just the second tab. So let's see. 25.9 in the regular season. And then in the playoffs, 12.2. So, I mean, yeah. And he had a lot of games where he just didn't play. Yeah, he only played in 13 playoff games for Miami. Right. So what do we think about Miami does with him? I mean, he's still got quite a while under contract. Yeah. It is. What happens here? Yeah, so let's put those numbers out there. Let me just get to them in my sheet. Here he's got gold forward. Four years, $74 million. Now his last year's only 9, it's 19.8, 8, 8 million, and it's only 9.888 guaranteed, so they could save 10 million, off of that. But yeah, I mean, you're talking at a minimum then three years and 60 $4 million. That he's guaranteed. That's a lot of money, right? There, because that's tough. Now, I have said this over and over again, if Duncan Robinson gets back to being the elite shooter that he was, then you're fine, especially in the regular season..

"Right to choose. Currently, the choice restricts his ability to be a full-time member of the team, and we will not permit any member of our team to participate with part time availability. It is imperative that we continue to build chemistry as a team and remain true to our long established values of togetherness and sacrifice. Our championship goals for the season have not changed and to achieve these goals. Each member of our organization must pull in the same direction. We are excited for the start of the season and look forward to a successful campaign that will make the borough of Brooklyn proud. So Carrie Irving will be joining the nets shortly. He is in health and safety protocols currently because he is still not vaccinated. Real quick, I just want to say that this is totally embarrassing. For the nets and not to put too much of a moral spin on it, but they should be ashamed. I don't understand. I just don't get it, frankly. We have the hardship. I know that they have a ton of players who are in health and safety protocols. Kevin Durant. James Harden. Joe Harris is injured, you can go on down the list. There's a ton of players on their team. And they're really hurting because of COVID and the irony of adding a player who refuses to get vaccinated to the team and suddenly backtracking and allowing him to play on the road and not in Brooklyn because New York City has not lived in these mandates anytime soon. Let me tell you that. That irony is depressing, frankly. And it's I don't even know. I'm just really disappointed and I guess the team and what are your thoughts, Ron? So to bring things back full circle from the open of this podcast, I went to go see Spider-Man on Friday. It just, you know, I have my mind blown, just surprise after surprise, thrill after thrill. Just completely taken aback. Can I quickly ask you, what's like the spoiler window here? Since it's been opening weekend and I feel like everyone who would care to watch that movie has seen it. Is it okay to spoil? I think you gotta give people at least another week. I know people wouldn't go because either they've been sick or they've been exposed. There's all these things. I think you gotta get at least at least another week here. 'cause I don't care about any of this and I just Googled it and I know it happened. So I am going to refrain from saying anything. But it continues at your point..

"Well, how about this? How about when I saw Robert Williams and I love him as a player when he was hugging Kyrie's ass like he was a long lost relic. Exactly. How is that? This man just came on your court. Stopped on the damn leprechaun until y'all to go to hell and you hugged him like your next sandwich. So you get upstairs and he Brian piccolo. Yeah, I mean, really. That was really upset me about the whole Kyrie thing. You got Kevin Garnett, talked about. He said, wait a minute, cornbread. You and me are the only ones that got mad when it came to what Kyrie Irving did. And last thing is a thousand times where everybody hear me. Carrie Irving was the, from a skills standpoint, the best guard, the subject I've ever had. At that position. I don't think nobody's going to argue that. Skill set is ridiculous. But what he did and it pissed me off. When I saw him go to the leprechaun, stomp on it like he was wiping shit off his shoes, I'm like, are you serious like he mad at Boston for something? And nobody said anything? No, that's the thing. I don't see it. Like, I just think you're right. Max, these dudes have to take the next step and be some dogs. Like data needs any more of a dog, Brown, especially 'cause Brown got that dog inning. He's in Atlanta kid. Like, you can't be pat and Chris Middleton on the back after you knock your guy down. On a breakaway, and he oh, it's all good. Hell no. Hey. This wasn't exactly the look on my face. I didn't deal like this, so I'm like, is that right? That's what I'm saying. The next time down to happen. They need to get tougher. I'm not talking about being so Richardson. Well, I'm talking about being respected. And I think we lost the respect of the rest of the league and the rest of the east didn't respect them, especially after that Miami series is mine took them out, took their will took their soul out of their chest and won in 6 games and they were the less talented team to sell to a more talented team in S series. We all know it. It might be new it might be played harder with better coach. That's why I wanted series in 6. You let Tyler hero go for 37 off the bench. Anywhere caused made him a stock..

"No idea what is going on with the MBA. And I have no idea why people are acting the fool. Have you want to say it's covered related and you're more Welcome to buy. I don't know if you're right because I don't know what's happening here. I have no idea what's going on here. Tony Katz, Tony Cats today and I'm not talking about Carrie Irving. Stepping on the Celtics logo. Which Doesn't move me at all. Like I did. It means nothing I am talking about. Popcorn being dumped on Russell Westbrook. Then you've got a fan trying toe jump onto the court. Right of Game four of the 76 years in the Wizards. Then you got people thrown water, water bottles and people. Yeah. Don't throw water bottles carry Irving. They spit on Trey Young of the Mohawks. I They spit on him. They spit on him and then someone in the crowd in the Grizzlies game. Was throwing racial slurs. John Moran, who's the star player for the Grizzlies, I have no idea what's going on. No idea what's going on the N B A is out of its head on this, so let's least go through some basics Fan's air back in games And fans are acting the damn fool at the game. Now we see this everywhere We see this in all aspects of life. You're seeing airlines that are no longer going to serve alcohol because people are getting stupid and getting to fight. So fight attendants knocking out the teeth. The flight attendants What's wrong with you? And by the way, I will allow me. Battle of the sexes Talk right here. Ladies. If you start a fight with a flight attendant, don't be surprised if a guy stops you. Caught a video. Of this woman on the street. Just walking up some guy twice her size three times your size, yelling and screaming and pointing at him and the guy hit her. Now you could save me. There's never a reason to hit a woman. Whoa! Listen to me carefully. I didn't say he should have hit her. I'm asking, Why is she yelling at anybody? She's yelling at people because she's been told your whole life. You don't hit a woman, and she sees that as an opportunity to yell at anybody should choose is maybe she should learn how to control of himself. That conversation gets me looks in one of two ways one that I'm out of my head insane and the other is from guys saying, Huh, God, I'd love to say that. It's fact there is a group of of women out there who believe that because you never put your hands on a woman, they could say anything, do anything, and they put themselves in the most violent of situations and act the fool and acts of violence. And there are another is gonna happen to me and it's something does there like I can't believe they hit me. Damn straight. You got hit. If you're punching somebody in the face screaming at them yelling at them, knocking the teeth out of a flight attendant. What do you think's gonna happen? Someone's gonna write your poetry. What do you expect? You should expect the worst. But in your whole life, you never actually got the worst. This is why you don't often see this from guys because they're used to getting punched in the face. This, however, does not apply to what's going on with the MBA. I have no idea what's happening here. No idea. There's a guy yelling racial epithets it at at who? John Moran, He's us Grizzly star. I know who he is. Why? Because he can It doesn't make any sense, though. You know, you say you got one. But look, when I say this make any sense, don't him wrong. It doesn't make any sense. But But look at the things in one situation of somebody yelling racial epithets. Another situation of someone throwing a bottle of water, and by the way for people I go. It's no big deal. Get hit in the eye with a bottle of water. See what happens to your career? Yes, seriously could blind you It's it's just It's it's in the Philadelphia Eagles fans would throw batteries at players on the other team and Santa in when snowballs, right, the terrible people. It's Philadelphia. I mean, I love filling, but dear God defend the fanatics are fanatics. That's why it's the Philly fanatic. Then you have People dumping popcorn on Russell Westbrook and I said at the time, I haven't gotten an answer. It's impossible that someone just dropped their popcorn. No, they have the video. He was so they do. Okay, God, because I wasn't sure. And if you tell me that it was, it was purposeful. I'll tell you, that's the dumbest you want to talk about the worst way. To go after somebody like like you think that's something? Where were you not able to carry all the feathers into the stadium? You're dropping popcorn on somebody. Whatever. I'm surprised he even noticed Always double head. Dude, It's still dumb. Yeah, he got banned from her life. Screw him, And then you've got a guy jumped on the court. That doesn't happen that often. Basketball fans are so used to being so close. Right that there, There's a different camaraderie that goes on as opposed. For example, the street current football. So why is this all happen? Let's make the argument. That it's covert related. People are finally out and about and they've lost all functionality. They've lost all sense of reason and rationality. They were just like you know what? Will will act the fool and it's cool..

"Subtle racism and people young from the crowd, even if it is it's part of the nature of the game and just going to focus on what we can control. That is very matter of fact. For such an indictment be so matter of. Hopefully there's no racism. You know why people yelling stuff is we know what he's alluding to from the stands, Let's go play basketball wine. It's that it really is an odd way to express something as severe of what is what he's accusing. Mm. But maybe that's where he is. Don't forget, Was it? The was the one year anniversary of George Floor? No, No, no, no, no, no, no, I'm not talking about that. Remember, Kyrie got into altercation. I forget who it was now it was because he called him the n word. Yes, it was. Wasn't sure? Yes. What shrewder. What was it? I think Yeah, I think it was and they basically got he got ejected right from that game, And it wasn't anything you know, physical or it was because he he said that word. Um, probably not even maliciously. More more like you know, what do you do it type of thing, and he got into it. And so for him to take, I think like a dismissive stands for for the fans doing that, after you know what previous history has shown us. His reaction is Things like that's a little bit odd. Now. Maybe he has to do that, because it's a he's trying to defuse it before it happens If that makes sense, and so I get it to an extent. But I mean for at one point in his career, he had nothing but love for Boston, and he did way thought it was. This was his destination for life. After working his way out of Cleveland on Minto, you know a coach who could test him or challenge him. Clearly, that wasn't the case because it was very short lived in Boston, even though he did have, I think is best PR of his career. And shortened season because he got hurt when he was with the Celtics. I mean, listen, you know that that that's painting Boston fans with a broad brush, but you know, unfortunately, ah lot of there. Older relatives, you know, kind of brought that heat to him, and I'm sure some of the younger fans latched onto that mindset because you look at and I don't mean just, you know Bill Russell and his in his memoirs openly talking about The racial divide in Boston or somebody like Jim Rice, who had issues in the seventies and into the early eighties. But, you know, somewhat re Adam Jones when he's playing center field for the Orioles. Remember the Fenway crowd? I d O. P. K Suban was hit with racist tweets from Bruins fans. C. C. Sabathia weighed in on the Adam Jones stuff and and said, yes, the eight Lion Byron Scott talk. This is just all issues over the year, Byron Scott talked about Barry Bonds. At one point was asked, you know, Hey, really? When when nobody would sign up at the end, basically, would you would you go to Boston? So I'm not playing there, and he gave reasons why, and they traced back to, uh to a racist past. Listen, Boston has an undeniably dark and indefensible. And painful history with racism in sports, right? Uh, might might might not even my issue. I'm confused because And then that we played a cut from Irving. There was more where there's a quote, he said. The whole world knows of subtle racism from the fans. A T D garden, okay? If the whole world knows about that Soto racism from those fans in that building. Why was he so resolute in pledging allegiance to the city a couple of years ago? Let's hear it because that's exactly what Carrie Irving did back in 2018. Shared it with someone teammates as well as the organization and everyone else in Boston. You guys.

"R sport. Brief calling now, with 855 to 1 to four, CBS. That audio courtesy and that's radio. I mean, goodness gracious, the Brooklyn Nets Tonight they set a franchise record 27. Threes. I know everything. Nowadays, An MBA is three point shot. Three point shot three point shot. But tonight, Harden and carry they went 15 of 21. From downtown. Gary Irving. What did he do tonight? 40 points. Nine threes for Kyrie. Irving, you look at James Harden. He had a triple double 29 points. 13 rebounds. 14 assists he knocked down Six threes. The Nets went over the king's 1 46, 1, 25 and heading into this this weekend, Carrie Irving basically told James Harden, he said, Hey, man, you one point Casino issue. If you got to choose one over the other, I think James Harden is a better candidate. He's bigger. He has a better time. A dynamic and nimble as Kyrie. Irving is getting to the basket because of his ball handling ability. You know James Harden's bigger Commands more more respect that what assigns just going to the basket. He can kick out more He can absorb contact. He's a threat off the drip. I mean, there's so many reasons, although Carrie Irving Yeah, he can play point without a doubt. He's an All star. But I think for this team, especially the fact that Carrie is a better shooter. I think James Harden. I think it's a great idea for him to run point guard Kevin Durant out tonight with the strength but hamstring when he comes back, Come on. These Brooklyn Nets. You fill out the roster, improve the defense. The offense should take them way deep into the playoffs. The phone lines opening right now. 855 to 1 to four. CBS. What do your thoughts Hmm. James Harden at point guard. Is that a good move? I certainly think it is And this is a great.

"When he says, you know, puts the NBA's put the most games on. I think he means that they're highlighted more because they're the Nets, and they have star talent. Newsflash Carrie Irving, When you assemble this mega power team that Z kind of what happens, you know that that's that's kind of what they do. Nobody's feeling sorry for you because so that's a ridiculous point of reference right there. LeBron's Del, This is whole life. Kobe del. This is whole career. So did shack. I stopped when the Celtics had the Big three Azzan East Coast rep. Even though that you know they didn't they were a little bit aging, like Ray Allen was all the book, but they run all the time. Star teams. Great teams deal with this, and that's the first point when he says the NBA put the most games honest that that's just That's his dumb, So I just that scratch that off that stupid number two covert. He's right. I defend. I totally totally defend him on that sloppily handled third point. The refs. Now this worries flat out erroneous. It's wrong. If you get to make claims, then you gotta back him up with facts. Otherwise, people like May will point out when you're wrong, and you're wrong because the Nets have attempted the eighth most free throw attempts in the game. So if you want to tell me that that's not congruent with their talent. I would tell you that I would tell you. I would point out the time to do what? I've done it, But you do it yourself. I would say going. Look at the advanced numbers and look at how many shots the Nets take in in the restricted area, And then this is all quantifiable. There are databases of this, as you know, the restricted area slightly outside the restricted area and then obviously deeper away. And what does that mean? It means you're a jump shooting team. When your jump shooting team you're not attacking the rim when you don't attack them, bring me not getting free throw, So it's very congruent with The way you play a third overall in the NBA and free throw attempts stopped crying. And the last one see, this is just this is entitled Men right this to me. This is where this is where? I'm just not a big carry Irving fan. I'm just not. I mean, you know, I respect his talent, and I always feel compelled to say this because I do think he's a really good person with good intentions, But he loses me when he says, literally battling so many elements, dude. You assembled? Not only did you join willingly, Kevin Durant. Okay. And as soon as you did that, boom, you know, wonder twin powers. Activate superheroes thing right Lead you lead you to do a legion of all the justice part of me. You knew the cameras were coming. And then once you trade for James Harden, you know that they're really coming. So you've got three of the top 10 players in the world on your team. You want sympathy that that's why I with respect. Do you think you know I love you, But, yeah, I think you focused on the wrong thing. They're like, Yeah, you are right about the cove it but it's the other three things that, he said. That rub people the wrong way and makes him seem out of touch. Yeah, well, I mean, it looks like he's trying to make an excuse, and it doesn't need to make an excuse. We know why you're not playing well because Kevin Durant's not playing every game. James Harden is still learning. You missed two weeks and you're just trying to figure out how to all play together. You all may be boys, but playing together it is. It's hard, right. It's hard to do it. Why you gotta give LeBron so much credit. For what he's done over the course of his career. He just goes into a new situation and they're in the finals right that. That's why LeBron is LeBron and he makes it look easy, but it's not easy, and I think, Kyrie Is seeing that now and look, he may have been, you know, because he likes to talk. And, you know, try to over explain things. Maybe that's what this was, Uh, I'm gonna react to what you say. I agree, so we could, but the reality is and we saw this last year with the Clippers. You really gotta Like put in the time together in order to get great. It's just not going to happen. It's why last year when they when the Lakers they started out. I mean, I've been losing to the Clippers the first game of the season like they were on fire and it was It was like it was intentional. They were trying to play aggressively both a D and LeBron leading the league in minutes, right. They were doing it on purpose because they knew that they had to accelerate. They're acclamation toe one another, and the Brooklyn Nets don't have the ability to do that one because of covert, which is absolutely right about but also simply because this this is a weird year and They have circumstances that don't suit them very well. Right now on day it's not going to get fixed anytime soon. I'll tell you this. We're gonna get to see if Kirk coming up next year. Three of the four things I think he sounds really fool the Shawn. But I will say this, you know, big picture, and I said this one what he was hired. The job is just too big for Steve Nash. The job's too big. Yeah, he's learning on the job. Just which, when you have superstars like this in their prime to not gonna sending players, guys who are, you know? Yeah, but in some ways, doesn't it remind you a little bit of Tyronn Lue when he was with the Cavaliers and, you know, assistant Steve Nash went from nothing to coaching. Yeah, but it was kind of like a buddy, but it wasn't like a personal code. Yeah, he works in clipboard. Yeah, yeah, It's different. It is. We'll see. But listen, whether that's a role in amazing to watch and when they're not They are very disjointed, very porous Defensive unit and if they don't know it was, I don't know how long it's gonna finish up for. We'll see that we'll be watching. That's for sure. You watch good or bed there. That kind of team acts update Steve Kerr going to great lengths to protect Steph Curry a little too much.

Hi Rie. Irving, James Harden. Kevin Durant all played together. Last night, The Nets lost the Cleveland Cavaliers. Now. I'm not gonna freak out over that one game. Kyrie Irving, though he said something after the game that I thought was very telling. Carrie Irving says the fate of their season will come down to the defensive end. Offensively, It clearly wasn't enough tonight. You know, we still need to get stops on the other end, so that's gonna be The tale of our season is how committed are we to that end of the floor moving forward? He's exactly right. And that is a mature Kyrie Irving. No Kyrie. Irving has had some problems. We don't know the whole full scoop of the story. And who knows how long it's gonna last. But that shows you just the mindset of Kyrie Irving where that's party. That goes. Okay. That's the old Kyrie Kyrie knows what it takes to win a championship. No, Kyrie gets all caught up in Who's he thinking about? You know, taking the last shot? Will he pass the ball off? You know how he trust Kevin Durant as well. Kyra having those? Yeah, I hit a big shot in my career, but also LeBron James had a pretty big block up against the Warriors. So he knows the importance of defense. And last night, the Nets put up 100 and 35 points. I told you last night, the next to put 135 points. Let's catch you thought they would have won. But now the cast 11 47 to 1 35 and double overtime. And also have a Jared Allen against his old team. 12 in 11. Jared Allen's a player They're gonna miss. But it's not what prevents you from making this trade. You make that trade and they end up getting James Harden. You know, the Nets offense is gonna be well and Durant had 38 James Harden at 21. Kyrie had 37. They're going to score. It's going to come down to there down. Download post presence and if someone can really develop there DeAndre Jordan. We put up a decent stat since the trade did go down, but you need another body there. And also it's going to come down to the defense. More importantly and Kyrie Irving clearly understands that I think it's good.

It's Alec a TV show without a studio audience. That's what it sounded like. Hey, we got James Huh, James, what we played with that? That's what it sounded like, Can noise in the background at a certain point, Just leave it alone. I've got about career over by the way. He still misses sabbatical. You might come back Wednesday he might come back Friday. In the Brooklyn next play against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Rumors are out there. Things have been saying things have been heard when it comes to cry Re Irving. When he comes back, how much more lethal with a Brooklyn that's being offense. Event like this. Now it's going 122 in their first game 125 in the second game with James Harden. Yeah, that dude that a mix If his head is on straight and I'll be honest. I think it's going to be If I'm Carrie Irving and I'm seeing the way the Brooklyn Nets have been playing without me when James Harden got there. They're good enough to win an NBA championship without Kyrie, Irving Definite gun of the guard The Eastern Conference without Kyrie, Irving If you have any kind of ego like we have seen and heard that carry, Irving has. Can you imagine what that's gonna sound like if he decides not to come back, and they went a championship without him? But when he comes back, it's not a tiff with me is when he comes back. How much more lethal with this team B and I know you're saying, Hey, Freddy, you know at a certain point Mom. They just can't score like this. They gotta play some defense. Sometimes all about playing defense is when you get stopped. Have you the Brooklyn that you got that kind of three headed those three headed dudes on your team that any given point in Gulf 100 points combined with three guys. You're not worried about your defense because your offense will be your best defense. We could have all that. Well, the next gonna start playing defense and Harden and Kevin Durant keep playing like that, and calorie. Urban doesn't mess up things. The best defense will be their offense. What I'm hoping. Not if but when Kyrie Irving comes back. I hope that he speaks for two reasons, Number one just to hear his explanation for his absence. Was he reading Moby Dick? Was he doing? A lot is in meditation. Golf on the retreat somewhere, and he's in a Tibetan mountains Anything. I just want him to speak to his explanation Number one and number two. The reaction to set explanation because anything he says, is going to be dissected like a frog and chemistry class. Anything that he has to say people going to find some right where they're going to find some wrong with it. That's what happens when you're polarizing figure. That's what happened when you've been celebrated, and that's what happens when you're Kyrie Irving. He left about any fanfare. He just decided one day when you woke up, you know, I don't feel like playing basketball today. Seven games later, still not in the mood to play basketball any given day. When he comes back. That's what I want. In Freddy's world and Freddie's universe. That's what I want two things when he comes back a that he's going to speak so we can hear explanation for his absence and be all the reactions Good. That whatever you said explanation But that's another candy for game of the year in the MBA.

I don't think Harry is wrong about that. He is a great shooter. He's a great score is all as well. But I feel like I just feel like if you're Steve Nash and you are Analyzing whatever the game, maybe, and whether it's the postseason or regular season. You're analyzing circumstances and situations and, you know, trying to figure out what the defense is going to do to you. Kevin Durant gives you the best shot because doesn't matter what the defense does to you. He's gonna get to his spot, right? Maybe shot right. Where is Kyrie? Kiki? What We perceive all Let's go to James. We've seen James get trapped before and stuck and, you know, turn the ball over and just be dysfunctional it moments now He's a great player, not maligning him at all. But we've seen him get trapped like we've seen that happen. Um, Kyrie, you know, if you get a bigger who bigger a big or Ah, wing defender who can has to speed to keep up with them. You can. You can neutralize him a little bit. But Kevin Durant, it doesn't matter who you put on him. And if you It was a big, big man is the sinner He's going around, You know, glories. He's gonna shoot over you. Still, Kevin Durant gives you the best shot that degree. Um, now, while we know that so does the other team, so they'll go a little heavy and their focus on Cady, but because he's a willing passer. And because he's 6 11, and he could just dump it over somebody. If that rotation for the for the double team for the trap with double is slow somebody's wide open and at that point As long as it's not the playoffs, that I think James Harden is going to stick it and I know the carrier. He's gonna stick more than he doesn't so I just I just wish there were fans. I mean, for every reason imaginable. I wish they were fans. But That place is going to have a unique buzz to it. If it works. If it works now, the Barclays will never sound like the garden. It won't But that doesn't mean it won't be 10 times better or more Enjoy. It will be and because Look what the trotting out there every night If Carrie's had is strapped on, right, and Katie is fully healthy. And you give hard another couple of weeks. Get in great shape. The sprained ankle the belly or get back Cardiovascular Lee and these sets are are set up in a way that is somewhat equitable and everybody's ego is feeling pretty good. And this team is humming. I mean, imagine that place with 20,000 people. Yeah, Hardened Durant unearthing. No, no doubt about it. Look, it's going to be exciting, regardless, um, you know, even even just from watching it at home. Because this is must watch television. You know you you have to see how it's gonna play itself out. And if it's gonna look is was amazing as we think, Or is it gonna be whatever Whatever happens is gonna be interesting to watch. Yes, these aren't bad. There's nowhere near bad player. Our bad play likely to happen unless his dysfunction which is interesting in and of itself, So, yeah, I can't wait for this to happen. I hope it happens this weekend. But while they've said, you know, Kyrie is being fined $50,000, which I agree with the beat even with what the heck is that? It's just me. Give me give me a five to give me a five. Go buy me lunch. You know, this is basically what they're asking me to do. On D is losing $817,000 about and forfeited game checks that simply because he didn't play. You don't get paid if you don't play, But they said maybe build up some companies. Yeah, 900,000. Here's Here's the other thing. They'll be t that. I mean, this is this is odd to me. And I've heard this a couple of times. The MBA or not the MBA. The Nets don't really know what's going on. At least that's what they're saying with Carrie Irving, yet they know he's been getting tested on a daily basis. So I'm confused. It could be in NBA liaison who's administering the test, and they just reporting the results Or maybe showing up protesting. Maybe maybe it just It just feels odd, because it's not like he's In Europe or something. He's probably sitting at his pad wherever wherever he lives, and they know where he is, And just not talking to them is great. I mean, at this point when you just Have your mask on go knock on his door. If they carry what's up, Let's let's talk like we need to know when you're gonna be back because he in theory could play on Saturday. That's what the report is that which is tomorrow? Um, but we don't know if he's going to actually do that. Then that's don't really know if he's gonna actually do that either one more negative tests and by the way, just to follow with your point. Who would be the one knocking on the door, Sean marks or or or I think it did. Nash Nash, I think you need to be Steve Nash. Yeah, I was at least I would. You know, I gotta be honest with you. I think the onus is on Carrie Irving. Oh, I've gone Steve Magic. I think it is a swell, but we know that's not happening, especially if the report from yesterday is true that he's upset with Steve. That or or the hot, not upset with him specifically, but with the hiring of of Steve that, Yeah. Uh, Either way, it's gonna be interesting. Tell you one thing, and he won't do this because he just won't and they'll probably try to navigate. This is smoothly as possible and bury any flare ups in the rear view mirror as quickly as humanly possible, But a bomb Steve Nash, let's start tomorrow night. If you got one now, I wouldn't start him. You haven't run For a week and a half. You're not starting? Yeah. Agreed that started Let me see James and let me see James and Kati. You watch, but they won't do that. They won't do that. You're right. Pop. Would. Steve Kerr probably would few others might Steve Nash not gonna do that? Um, I read a pretty interesting article. That's not the superstar power of the players were talking about, But I was on CBS sports dot com. If you guys want to go and check it out, I was reading it this morning. And It's about maybe the next superstore that could be dealt. And quite frankly, they're a little loose in their usage of the word superstar Zach Levine is on the list really good play, not superstar way. Love is on the list. We hit this yesterday, but there was really weren't any We could think of because we're thinking of like actual superstars Bradley bills on their list. And then that makes sense. Does Karl Anthony towns on their list that makes sense?.

Carrie Irving Stuff Perkins Comments about M J. LeBron with the goat stuff Take right now we get a chance to chat about the NFL. We go back to that. Would you want by Gary Meyers, who Was with us. I guess about moves that two months ago. Yeah, that right when you lost right right when you lost the podcast. Yep. And he obviously knows Brady very well. He does this podcast with that's a podcast that he's referencing way know about that is an author been around the game a long time, Well, source well connected NFL Hall of Fame voter as well. What up, Gary paid on today, pal. I am doing great. How you guys doing Good on there. Yeah. Good. Hey, Gary. I just I I should have listened to this and I didn't. But you add bonus step, you add bonus episodes to the podcast. Which is great. The podcast by the way for those who are looking forward are it's the goat. Tom Brady. You can find it wherever you get podcast, But you did a bell. A check of our Brady versus Belichick. Podcast 2020. What did you What did you make of the Brady verse? Bella check that. Everybody talked about all season long. Obviously Brady one because he's in the postseason, and Belichick had one of his worst seasons ever. But what did you make of it? Well, I think that it's probably the most intriguing. Debate of the 1st 20 years of the century is who is responsible or who was more responsible. But the Patriots success teak and, um, the way I look at it, I give Belle check all the credit for drafting Brady. In the sixth round. Hey, was 1/7 quarterback taken? But he was also the seventh player taken by the Patriots in that draft, So it's not like Bella check knew what he was getting, but I give him credit for taking him and developing them. Once Tom got his feet on the ground and took over for Bledsoe and won a championship. I think it was more Grady that sustained that success that led to a dynasty. Then it was don't check And I think what's happened this year? We We kind of backs that up. Yeah. No, You're right. A mediocre quarterback, too. Bell check and he couldn't win. And you give a mediocre coaching staff. To Brady, and he's got him in the divisional round of the playoffs. So advantage, Brady. Yeah. Do you think that you know the guess the evolution of the Tampa Bay offense and tea and some of the struggles they had earlier Bruce Arians, calling him out. Is that all worked its way through their system Are they like? Are they prime to be a competitors in the postseason? You know, it's really interesting with Arians calling out Brady's You mentioned. Tom was not used to that publicly. But privately, better chick used to do that. From all the time in practice and in meetings, you know, and Tom being very six skinned with that stuff would take it. And you know that everybody else sitting in a meeting room saying Well, if if Tom Brady doesn't flinch or complain when Del check is beginning on him, then nobody else could. But, you know, 11 thing I want to mention to you guys is I don't know everybody's kind of jumping on the bucks bandwagon, Alan and they have played great, Gary, by the way. I'm not Gary. I'm not but keep going. I'm not And I haven't been. I'm not Well, here's why I'm not convinced yet they go into their bye week, having lost three out of four. The three losses were against the Saints, which was the largest Um, margin that Tom A Devil lost again. I think it was 34 points and he was horrible. In that game. They beat Carolina and they lose back to back at home. To to the to the Rams and the Chiefs, and then they have their by which you think would be an opportunity for them to say, OK, it's just not working here. Tom is not a deep ball, throw it nothing. He can't throw it deep, but that's never been his game. I think that they probably went through and every play of the season to that point, said okay, this is working and it's not working. And then you say, OK, whatever they did. Getting results, but look at who they played, and I think the big deal Atlanta, Detroit Carolina Atlanta Again and Washington It's not exactly murderers, a road that they've been feasting on. And now this is the true test on Sunday night in New Orleans, you know the state's defense has been These kryptonite this season, he's probably played his two worst games of the year against some, and if They're able to win the scheme and I'll be a believer and I think they've gotten Further than maybe some people thought they would when they were struggling at midseason. But to me, the whole thing does not work, And it's not a success unless Brady gets into the Super Bowl this year. Or next? Yeah, No, that's fair that that's a fair statement told Gary Meyers, author NFL Hold the Fame voters. Well with this here, Tekin Tierney, CBS sports radio, You know. What is your assessment?.

"That last part right that that what was just said, you know, a very expensive price. This did this cost get James Harden. Was through the roof, even for a disgruntled superstar. I I believe Carrie Irving drove the price up on his own team by not being there. I mean, if you're the general manager Stone for the Houston Rockets, or tell me for tea to their owner. You're telling Sean marks of the Nets, right? Hey. I know where my guy is. He played last night he stunk. He's he's not invested, right? I mean, he's an awful teammate right now, but I know his whereabouts. He was on the floor. Don't try and lowball me here for James Harden. My guy was averaged, You know, at least 28 per game over the last five seasons, the last three years over 30 per game. Don't try and lowball me because you tell me where is your guy? Where's Kyrie? Right now? This is the ultimate insurance policy. So unless unless you know where your dude is, because I know my guy is you're not lowballing us. You're paying full market value. Full boat for James Hearted Comey back with your best offer. Click. What do you think he come? He completely did that. That's why the Nets were desperate organization because when you don't have anywhere with all the know where your guy's supposed to be, you don't have any idea bin The next time you saw him was a zoom. Event for political candidate and he was sitting there he had. He had his hat, his 10 in his hand. He was just hanging out listening and paying attention in Brooklyn. That's like, really You find time to be there for that. We're playing the Denver Nuggets last night, but I know exactly where you are. Yeah, we're having a bean at a birthday party Mascots for NASCAR's Where your sister and also your dad. The Brooklyn Nets to your point. Yeah, that price was driven up because when cabbie Irving basically put it out there that I'm out for personal reasons, I don't know when I'll be back. And you had to hear that from a guy who is no longer part of your organization Castle Avert. He was one of made a public saying, Yeah, I taught the gallery and he said he just had to take some time off and that was all, he said, and he didn't elaborate any further.

Now caress Le Vert is in Indiana pacer Victrola Depot is now a Houston rocket. James Harden is about to be officially a member of the Brooklyn Nets. Gaby gets his old teammate back. And oh, by the way, Yes, Kyrie Irving is still nowhere to be found. And Freddie. This is the one also that intrigues me. You have two very thin skinned superstars involved in this three headed superstar monster, right? Kevin Durant created a fake Twitter account to compliment himself. Not long ago we've seen how Kyrie when he's not the guy, he forced his way out of Cleveland, because LeBron James got so much credit. We know how it ended in Boston and now You got three guys that are all gonna want the ball. Forget the 1st 47 a half minutes of the game. The last 30 seconds game on the line. Who's getting that shot? They're all gonna want it. It better be. Kevin Durant. What bit you manners? That's the dude. James R. To the top of the key. Just just pounding that rock into the hard wood.

"So there's more details coming in already. The Rockets have expanded the deal. All right. They have received caress Laverne from the Nets, but they took that, and they have now shipped caress liver to the Pacers. Victor. All the depot go into the rockets. This is crazy. Yeah. Wow. Taking interior here. CBS sports radio was James Harden got his wish He knew that was coming after that press conference last night. You know they The only issue for the Nets and you know they did this before, in terms of mortgaging the future Now, when they did this with Pierce and Garnett, it was different. Those guys were ah lot out a lot further removed for their prime James Harden still firmly in it, so it's not the same complexion to the trade. But You know you still dealing with a lot of elements that are wrong? No to get carrier If nobody knows if he's going to come, hey might come back. You might retire. Who knows? Uh, if you don't think he's gonna retire, I don't think so, either. But if he does, or if, and when he comes back, he's still an injury prone player. All right? Um, you know, Kevin Durant has been Kevin Durant so far, and I'm not worried about James Harden. Put the ball in the hole. But you know what? What? The Nets had more than anybody in the N B. A Was depth on and they have no depth now and defensively. They are highly deficient. Yeah, having they just are well, Katie is gonna have to take on a larger role as as that defensive Stallworth. Kind of like we saw, though, when he was in a non Oklahoma City and Golden State is playing to five. Yeah, when he's playing the five and four years ago before he securely snapped. It's really crazy to think that that was four years ago. Three years ago, three blocking shots, right blocking shots, rebound and didn't lead the E No. He led the team, but Thank you. Just the team. I don't think you lead the conference in rebounding, but he was he was He was good is very good at that defends the defensive five. And so I think you're going to see a lot of that. Even it's gonna You know, it's just you have a stretch five basically, and so, but you're right about the depth thing. That's the one thing that the Nets have had. Really. For the last three or four years, Even though they didn't have a ton of superstars. They had a ton of depth. Now they get that might suffer. But when you when you have a chance to put together three superstars, which we don't see very often we see to all the time but you have a chance to put together three superstars. You do everything you can. Especially when you are. You know Joseph Sai, who is the owner of the Brooklyn Nets, and you're obviously trying to win a championship, but you're also trying to win the market Marketability game. In New York really across the world. The three top three of the top 10 selling jerseys are now on your team when you think about that, and that's that's kind of insane on, but it allows you to be having impact outside of just winning NBA games and things like that. So this is from a business perspective. This makes a ton of sense, and it's probably why they got the okay. To do it. In addition to really not knowing what's up with Kyrie, I don't want to say that that stuff doesn't interest me because it does. You know the expansion of the sport. The impact it has it every every corner and crevice of the world is undeniable. But, you know, all right. So you're selling jerseys. Great. If you don't want a championship, and I keep mine now, you don't want it this year, and you think they can do you think they can win? I think they can. I think that I think they need to make you think they could before. Before the James Harden trade. Yes, Remember, I picked them to go to the finals. Yeah, you know, and the way Kyrie Irving 27 points a game 43% from downtown 55% Overall 89 assists with Carrie Irving was playing career He was playing great. I fully trust that Durant would come back and be Kevin Durant, and he's basically 95%, if not more of Kevin Durant. You know, I love their death. I always referenced the two headed Biggs of which, Now they have one. And they had one of the two that I would less prefer. If I'm Annette. I would rather have Jared Allen over DeAndre Jordan, but you still have the sniper Joe Harris, who we had on the show a couple of weeks ago. You don't have liver did what he's out. You know, you let your loss in pieces so a Taurean Prince, whatever. Yes, I did think that they could win it. But now the other element of play is how to Steve Nash handle all this. How does he handle this? Like we're assuming And maybe I don't think there's an answer to that. Beatty. There's not That? Well, that's not. The answer comes based on the evidence right because there's nothing else to really reach to to say Well, this happened then, and I can surmise or deduce that that will happen again. Steve Nash, the rookie head coach, and, you know the last time these guys played together, they were two totally different cats. And so what about the ranch and James Harden? And they throw Irving into the equation whose relatively ball dominant You know, I their most watched TV. They are absolutely must watch. I still think they need um one lower level trade, which they very well could execute. I said this before. But where does this put these three players? Let's say, usually probably the point guard spot. Just kind of facilitate things for somebody else need to shoot. Where do you put these three When you look at Some of the great big threes of all time, and we'll assume that Irving's coming back and that all three are healthy and harmonious. Where would you put these guys first glance? I put him second still to behind the Golden State Warriors three because the three with the Golden State Warriors were I mean, they were dominant. They won back to back championships and should have one. You know another..

"Know, watching in So many ways is at least you know what we've seen in the first four years. Roughly of his career is a lot of ways. A complete antithesis of Carrie Irving agreed. Who was, you know? Did Shawn Watson is the ultimate definition of steadiness? Um And with Irving, there's there's an erratic nature to his not not in terms of the law, so I wanted to, but But just in terms of which Kyra is entering the building today, what's carry thinking what car is going to do? They show Watson is like Kyrie great, but shows up and a steady and is a no galvanizing force for that team. But he's ticked off, and he's ticked off for a couple of reasons the hiring process whether it's the GM. Apparently he wants the enemy. It doesn't look like the Texans will go in that direction. It all in there if you want, I know And that surprises me because I thought I think that was the destination that I predicted that Eric. The enemy would wind up and if you were called looking and explain a great quarterback And potentially scheming into a great offense. If you don't necessarily have the talent around you, I'm very surprised by that really surprised that surprised and disappointing. That's actually that that's baffling. But what we do know is that what least as per the reports to show Watson not returning the coals of Texans management. And and that's fine. That's fine. I wouldn't call him back either because you stopped over the coach who was you know all over the place for a couple of years got rid of my best weapon. It's traded away all the premium assets. No first round pick No second round pick, Salary cap l I mean, my defense things 33 NFL. I mean, you've done nothing, that's all. Really, that's all. That's what you paid me so I can't be too mad. He did pay me 100 53 million bucks, but Where do you think this goes and the responsibility of the Texans Toe Watson to lean on him for the hiring process. So first of all, I think about how odd this is. It's very rare than a displaying athlete. Gets asked or or even given the opportunity to be involved in the coaching search, or, in theory, even the general general manager search And I think that's what we can look back at that cryptic tweet that he put out or maybe was so, uh, instagram, whatever it was where, he said some things never change because maybe he wanted to be involved and who was going to be the general manager, and they went with a guy who followed the same path that Bill O'Brien did. That is the guy from the new world in Patriot. So some things just don't change. And maybe it made him think. Well, you're going. You went around me already. The higher the general manager. Um, now you're probably gonna go around me toe higher the head coach, especially because I wanted you guys to interview at least give him a cursory interview. Eric the enemy and we know that they didn't do that. So he's upset about this, but I have to take a step back first bt up and wonder the prudence. Of asking a sitting player, even a guy who you played paid a lot of money to who's likely to be a part of this franchise for the foreseeable future, if not his entire career, giving him the authority and the found of The voice, a voice a say, and who you hired to be his boss. And what about a voice? Not not authority. But voice Forget that think about that. He you're asking someone who's going to be I think about this dynamic. You're asking someone who's going to be underneath. The boss to help hire that boss right. So even that boss now also feels undermined right because he could. He's answering to a guy who helped who gave him the gave the team be okay to hire him. It's just It's just weird. It's It doesn't make sense again. I'll go back to what I was saying when this guy Reed Irvine conversation. Is a hierarchy of authority that's being distorted by the Houston Texans. Now it's one thing to give. I think Shawn Watson and I d like to say, Well, I want this kind of coach. We need an offense of mind. I like I'd like I'd like a guy who uses motion and misdirection and whatever you know, go find that guy. As opposed to do you like this guy and him? What if he says no, And they hire many ways, because I think that's it was the issue with the stereo that he didn't necessary one because stereo to be their general manager and the heart of anyways. And so it's just an odd It's an odd set up. I know that this happens post career. John Elway is the perfect example. Guys get back into the front office. You know the kid the guy up in, uh, in in Detroit right now, Bill, Man of Spielman. You know you get back into it, but why you're while you're playing. It just feels a little odd to give a current player. Front office power, especially in the NFL. Wher the contracts are basically worth the weight of this this piece of paper right here large part, but not that well at will employees. Listen, I would have a little separation. I would make the and I hear you, but I would make the distinction between Ah, player. Even somebody is great and as qualified as the shore Watson to, you know, contributing and add to the conversation with the process. If you will, I would not invite their opinions on the general manager. To me. That's a nonstarter like green. You will have no bearing who we hire is the GM. That's right. The head coach is a little different. Like that. That is something again. Let's say it will be the ultimate voice. I'm not saying I would bestow the ultimate power wouldn't hand him the hammer. He wouldn't have the total Jews card. But what I confers not the right word, but what I communicate With my store quarterback in the year 2021. About our head coach hiring process after That player went through such a bed stretch with the previous coach. I I probably would. Yeah, I probably will not specifically on that guy. I just I just think it's an odd setup. Imagine, Imagine this and imagine this scenario. Head Coats and Shawn Watson get into some sort of disagreement. And to Shawn Watson fires back. Well, you're only here because I said you could be here. What I mean like that. That likely won't have me. But can you imagine like you have that trump card That doesn't make any sense to me. Yeah. Yeah, that would be horrendous about that would be that's what I see happening if maybe I don't need you know what? It's funny. I don't see the showing Lots of never doing that now. I don't need the wrong guy, but he could. Yeah, I guess, I guess, theoretically sure he could. He could, um, he could again, but I wouldn't grant him the license to make the higher I would just Gauge his opinion, and I would I would pick his brain it like it's funny. It's funny. We're tied back. Kyrie here so carry, Irving said. It's initially then each backtracked off this. It was a collaborative effort. Who the head coaches OK, which is, you know a direct undermining of Steve Nash because no, it's not. It might be a collaborative process in terms of who they decided to hire. But it could never be a collaborative process in terms of who was actually the head coach, So as long as the Texans and this is quite easy To delineate if they were able to delineate that line and say, Okay, listen, you're you're not You're not collaborating on the on the unnecessarily on the game plan or who makes the who's on the roster. You're not the coach, but we want to see who you think you can work well with I don't think that the world with that, right? Oh, yeah, I don't either, but I just think it's odd. Just God..

"I'm too much room here, man. There's no way I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt. Why, Because he's never disappeared. Is that what he's always been a flake? Okay, but he's never done this before. And my point is, he's always been a cancer, though, huh? I mean, Zord may Maybe maybe you could look at it that way. But he's been also a winner on a team in Cleveland that we know about and again. I don't know what's going on. And when I find out what's going on, maybe my opinion will change. But I'm not one to rush to judgment like that. But at the end of the day, Steve Nash could have made this a non story. Instead, Steve Nash unintentionally fan the flame and in its in its creating a firestorm that we're now going to get the only the only thing that I'm upset about because I'm not even upset. I really don't even care. But the only thing that bothers me about this whole situation is that he didn't tell us coach. Right again. I'll go back to that I go the hierarchy of leadership matters in sports matters and everything. Yes, it's particularly matters in sport and the fact that he was disrespectful to that. That's that's the thing you hold him to account for it. It's not the first time he's been disrespectful to that. You know? Like, Yeah, he's it's just It's not gonna end. Well, there's not gonna end well for Carrie Irving in the Nets. Then again, I don't know that he reached out to reporter either samplers point this out. He's probably his pipe, right What that reporter said, sources say. That, you know he didn't want to play. We don't know the number. There was a direct quote attributed to so even if and I know we're doing semantics, but I think it's important even if Kyrie didn't respond directly to this reporter. He responded directly to somebody other than the person he should have responded directly to first his coach. Yeah, that's what I'm saying is true. Is it maybe didn't have his number. Maybe don't have his number in his phone. He didn't recognize who's just 971 number, but come on. All right. Maybe that he was gonna text LeBron instead. Is other buddy. All right, coming.

So, like I said, it was a personal issue. Brother s O. The Nets didn't have our Irving on Thursday. They won't have them as well. Tonight he will not fly with the team to Memphis for that match up. Against the Grizzlies. It's time for straight talk brought to you by straight talk Wireless, Freddie and Fitz Simmons on Irving. Going AWOL prior to Thursday's game is Carrie Irving. Does anybody really surprised? This is a young man who forced his way out of Cleveland because he didn't want to play with LeBron James anymore.

I mean, I want to be the guy. I'm iron man and he goes to Boston, and it was like death by 1000 cuts. Look what happened in Boston after Kyrie Irving left in his Kimble Walker guys so much more fun to play with. He actually loves the game. It isn't a jerk. And now you have Kyrie going to Brooklyn. The moment he went there, would you not talk about Brooklyn. You know what you're getting. It's death by 1000 cuts and then you get the dagger in the back. We all have been there.

If you say Hey, whatever went on. Yes, I doubt the capital of did you with a personal issue? If you want this responsibility, Carly Irving, you can't just say I just didn't want to play. But you don't tell your head coach. You don't tell your teammates. You don't tell anybody organization. I'm never gonna fault humans for being human. Everybody has those moments where you just wanna be. No matter what's going on inside your head or outside your head. But if you want to be this guy carry Irving, if you want to tell us all that all all season, I've learned so much from the past to be a better person, not a better player, but a better person. This is not being a better person. But do you have your head coach? Not knowing why, and he can't get in contact with you. And then we have to hear Per a source. Somebody on Twitter that you just didn't want to play broadcast. Irving, you can't do that. You can't and that straight talk wireless. No contract. No compromise.

You were like what? Eight or nine games into the season. I mean, Brooklyn, it all but exceeded expectations early in the season, not going all Boston and blowing out the lawyers. You know, had season games back to back in Atlanta, But you know, you really felt a lot of promise that you know this team was not gonna have the issues off the court. We know there were still there, but I mean this early, so Yeah, it's Is frustrating from the sense that you know how good the nets can be. And should be. They go out get a huge win without Kevin Durant Akari against the 76 is now Is this the same story of last year's nest and play better without Kyrie Irving on the floor, so You know you're gonna have to figure things out with the Nets. But whatever is happening off the court. It has to get taken care of. And I'm not saying that we all haven't had taken personal issues or days. In the NBA. Listen, man, if you're missing, it's life and death. You miss practice. It's like, not forget the game. You missed practice. It's life or death.

This on Twitter, Coleman, ESPN, The Infinity ESPN, he said. As far as I see it, Carrie was a no call, No show team to suspend him without pay. For one game that be a good idea, Paul how he would receive that They bring even different problems of wars problems. You gotta be careful that if you're the Brooklyn Nets Don't disagree. Good luck. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you said earlier you have to do something. Mm. But what do you do? Finding him? Does nothing. He's got a gazillion dollars, right? Exactly Well, at least the New York Mets. They're not to worry about a car be Irving type situation with their latest and greatest because they gave Francisco Lindo from the Cleveland Indians. Part of a major trade. And it wasn't just the player the player is great. Sandy Alderson, the Mets GM said he's special because there's some some players that many players that you watch and you You appreciate. There are other players you watch and you smile. And that smile is not just you know a function of appreciation but also kind of an empathetic reaction to how they play the game. I think when doors the kind of player that makes One smile. New York is gonna light him up. He's got a lot of New York and it's going to be tremendous on both sides. And, yeah, there's gonna be pressure because you bring that kind of talent and that electricity people gonna have high and outside expectations. If anybody can deal with that, coming into a New York market with that kind of personality. That dude is Francisco Linda. I feel off of a Cleveland fans because I don't feel losing, but at the same time Business be never personal, and that's where it is to you cause I want that guy and he went out and got him. We all know what he does on the field. I mean, the gold gloves. Switch hitter, Right? Can snag bags doesn't strike out a lot. Well, we all know what he does out there. It's what the way he does it. It's what all this is talking about. He loves to play the game. He's like a little leaguer getting paid a boatload of cash. And that attitude is infectious throughout the clubhouse and not just the clubhouse, you talk to anybody in Cleveland, it spreads into the community. That's what he will be. Whatever you need him to do. He'll do it outside of the game. When it comes to the game. He's happier than a pig in mud, man. I mean, he just has a blast playing The game, and it's so refreshing to see New York You got one hell of a player and maybe even a better teammate and maybe even a better person. Lindo jerseys are going to fly off this shows in motels and on meds dot com You name it. That's the kind of attitude and game and personality. That New York can't wait to embrace when it comes to Francisco, Linda or no longer Indian. But now a New York met, And that's the difference between the Wilpon family and Steve Cohen.
