"I don't think you can really pick an mvp off of the jazz because they work. You know Altogether maybe the clippers if they start to make iran and but it's really wide open yokich but i e coli yokich. Yeah he's yokich has been tremendous and listen. There should be a listen. There should be an emphasis on. It should be an advantage for you to win an mvp play in the west because you are playing in the superior conference and they should be taken into consideration. There's a lot of factors right that you've got to take into consideration. I mean but look. I mean the east is. Do we fill. It's a superior conference is because what about the top heavy -ness of the east. So like what are you basically. What are your requirements in saying that the west is so much better than the east. Because when you look at like. Who is the best team. Who who's your your championship. Pick right now like when you say the most talented team and jazz fans. Don't come for me. You got a point to to the nets. Well you could try to poke some holes in how this might play out for the nets really hard to do. Yeah listen if the three of them are playing if durant irving and harden are healthy playing It's hard to imagine someone's going to beat them for of seven The lakers you. Know with the davis. Lebron certainly anthony. Getting back healthy but i think the laker team is one thing. The lakers misses that the rim protection that they had last year with dwight. Howard javale mcgee you know you talk the teams and it was so much harder playing them last season and I think that's why perhaps getting an andre drummond in the buyout market of drumming ends up. There is imperative for them. I think it certainly Shores them up in that area. You just have to see what it looks like for. Anthony davis coming back. But i mean listen. The the hawks have won six games in a row in the east and yet the board. I need rough. And they've and their in six place. Like i mean they were just they just fired. Lloyd nate mcmillan's been great. And i just think the depth of the west still remains a separator With the there's really. I still think top the bottom I just think that there's a west is less secure than the top of the maybe. That's what i'm focused on me because we don't know what the injury is going to like. How long injuries. Going to linger for apis. What that's going to mean We gotta see how playoff battle-tested utah is going to be in you know if they can perform on that level and the clippers. I think are a big question. Mark like can they put it together. I think they So i just think now is much as there are question marks about like you know the nets and all working together. I still believe in that talent and then with with janas the way he's playing i think. Pj tucker is an interesting add a little note about like the the news. You broke yesterday about j. Tucker the box first half in that game was atrocious. They scored the fourth best offense in the league scored thirty one points. I mean they could not hit the side of a you know like a barn at all like they it was. It was set basketball back a little bit yesterday. And you couldn't talk about the trade until you know it's official yada yada yada but he did admit that like he said you know. It's just really weird showing up to work and not senior co workers there and so he essentially admitted to it just being kind of weird that they warmed up and then they you know the two deejays weren't there anymore so it's just a little note just to add to your to your reporting Put into context weird start. Yeah and they were racing to get to those guys. At trey got agree to and selfishly. I was just hoping they were going. I didn't want to. I didn't want that to linger into the game I was really hoping they were gonna get to those guys before the game so so i could report it before that. I didn't want to have to wait. And thankfully they got to those guys in the trade had been agreed to and and so the two deejays had to houston. But yeah i think. Yeah the box of ben listen. There's been an evolution and but style and how they wanted to play both sides of the ball. You know defensively. They're doing some certainly some different things offensively you know. They want it to sort of try to balance that team out and not be. You know you see janas. Assists are up. You look at the numbers this year and his assists her up and and He has been I think what happens is zach. Lowe wrote about this recently and i don't vote for a war i've just don't put myself. I just decided years ago to not vote on awards but smart. Because it stresses me out like i get. I get a lot of anxiety which i shot. It's a big. It's a big responsibility. But i mean it takes me days like i get you know emails from mark like are you feeling not your your balance. I go just guy gotten by the deadline. I wanted no part of it but it is like human nature crops into it. And i think with jaanus. Sometimes i imagine you're looking to eliminate because it's such a thin line comparing so many great players. And and i think with the honest i think people probably do take into consideration. What happened the playoffs last year. And the fact that you a while but but you're not supposed to and you're not supposed to anticipate what might you're judging somebody on that year and i think there's certain years where hey it's this guy's turn you look in history and you saw like you know..

"Greats i i know messiahs not going to send him some where he really doesn't wanna go. They're going to work him and mark bartlestein his agent. And so we'll see. I mean us in philly makes sense a lot of ways. It's home for him. You know chance to go. You know where. He grew up where he played his college ball bought. We're not there yet like and so that's gonna be one to watch. Certainly aaron gordon in orlando orlando's talking. You know there's certainly a number of teams that have interest in him. And you know i think orlando will tell you. They'll like they go back and forth on. What on the direction here that they might want to move in ultimately it's gonna be it's gonna hinge on what somebody offers probably at the trade deadline an hour or two before and you see what all your best offers already irony of worth worth doing. And so evan forty as another player there at the end of his contract and so those are decisions of the magic. Has to make in cleveland with andre drummond. I know every expectation of most people is that ends up in a buyout that a trade traded. His salary is too difficult. I i do think there's a couple things on the board. Possibly maybe in three way situations where they can get enough salaries moved around ultimately all cleveland's really gonna try to get out of. This is what they put into it last year. They traded him from detroit if they can get a second round pick for him and not have to do the buyout and get some value back for him. I think they'll do it. I i just think the question is. It's going to be hard at his salary. Tim and then you know if he decides he wants to go in. The buyout. market certainly lakers nets are at the top of the list for him there. Yeah absolutely i think. Go back a bit. You know to me the two inch. Interesting guys. Beyond the raptors guys are aaron gordon and harrison barnes in sacramento in that you look around the league and whether it's boston or bamn even after a reza These good teams are looking for combo. Forwards who can guard people and shoot threes. Right that's kind of. That's kind of the the unicorn player that every team is looking for. He saw brought robert covington. Gopher two first round picks to portland for the season. You saw this trade jae crowder goes to phoenix. Look at the impact he said there. Those are the kind of guys the bigger guys that can guard. Lebron james is the leonard. Kevin durant chose the onset of coupons. Those guys on the wing jason. Tatum jalen brown. You need people to guard those kind of guys in the cloud. And that's why with gordon barnes in particular very curious if they get moved and if they do where they go because those are the kind of guys that that good teams are looking to add. That could have an outsized impact in the playoffs. And as far as drummond goes you look at guys like him and otto porter in the marcus aldridge. What are the consequences of the cba changes over the past. Two years is that contracts have gotten shorter and because of that we don't see a lot of loaded contracts floating around the league that like we used to deals that teams. Were trying to get off to save money or to clear cap space or stuff in the future right so a lot of times. You'd see a big expiring contract like that of drummond reporter aldridge or one of these guys and you think hey. This team could use that contract as a vehicle to maybe get a pick and take on some money and because of where the league is out right now. Those opportunities are there and so for a guy like drummond that probably is going to lead to him being bought out and as opposed to him. No maybe getting traded somewhere and having an impact that way step. The economics have changed. How trade deadline works. There's no question about it. You don't have that chase used to be just a chase for getting off longer term money for expiring. So that had great value and the shorter deals has impacted. That last year showed us that. You never know what life is going to throw at you. And if you use credit cards to pay for unexpected expenses it can be overwhelming to manage that debt. Take control with upstart..

"Is a veteran guy who wants to win Hoping to get another contract this summer and is going to be motivated coming into play much better for the bucks. And i think for the price that milwaukee ultimately gave up which really wasn't much to got off contract for next year when in dj. I didn't really like the signing in the fall for the fact that i didn't think he was a guy who would hold up in the playoffs and now they get a guy in. Pg tucker who very much is capable of doing that and has proven time and again in the past if he can get back to the level he was at before. And like you said they they make kind of creative move to swap these future first round picks and with the pick swap this year with milwaukee getting houston second round pick. Even if they i mean they're gonna make that swap. Nothing the bucks are going to be one of the best teams in league. They're only going to have to move through spots back in the draft to basically it off of augustine's money for next season so a lot of ways it's almost a free look for them at tucker in for that price for what he's capable of doing for that team in particular allowing them to play small with either him or jaanus at center and give them a switching look on defense that they really were not able to do with their current group before making the straight. I think it does raise their ceiling. If he can get back to. The player was before him again for the price. I think it's a no brainer for them to take a swing on it and hope that he could come in and give them some of that. Same toughness in energy and three point shooting that he's been so successful operates in the past several years. That's right and i think that it was interesting. Houston out in the marketplace. You know they had tried to get a young like a good young rotational player in a deal for tucker they. They couldn't get that. They tried to get it from milwaukee from brooklyn from the lakers. Miami and You know thirty five like you said almost soon to be thirty. Six year old rental Nobody's given that up. But i think in the end you know what they were able to do the picks and at least you know. Dj wilson still young player to see if there's anything to salvage their in his career and augustine again. Like you said milwaukee gets the money off and but certainly the picks i think for as houston starts to look forward right now where they are like the picks are what are most important for them But i think there's going to be. It's going to be an interesting week. I don't think well. I'm pretty confident. There's not going to be that. Knockout big star all of a sudden available in the market place. I mean the names we can go through. You know. Victor oladipo aaron gordon. Lonzo ball John collins i think is unlikely to leave atlanta. I just don't think they can find value on a rookie contract for him there. Six zero since nate mcmillan took over as head coach. I think they can figure out. John collins collinses future. I know they don't want the there was a limit. They were willing to go. Negotiations around ninety million on an extension. He'll be restricted. Free agent You know they can figure that out after the season in obviously kyle. Lowry is going to be an interesting. I think both kyle lowry norm. Powell are interesting. Both going to be free agents in toronto Those are interesting situations for the raptors moving forward. Where do you wanna start him on the trade deadline. And how this thing how. This is gonna take shape here in the next few days while. I think you're right in that in talking to everybody around league over the past few weeks you know. The the general expectation is that for a bunch of reasons. there's probably not going to be a ton of movement. You have the play in. Turn it in both conferences which has an extra couple teams that get quote unquote playoffs or a shot at making the playoffs which is limited some of the seller market. You have a lot of these teams at the top teams. like milwaukee. The lakers clippers the nats. That are either hard caps or don't have any picks to trade or both and in general. I think it's just. We're not gonna see a ton of movement but the team that i'm most interested in over the next week is toronto. And it's because of kyle. Lowry in norm powell like you said no. The raptors obviously been devastated by some covert absences over. The past couple of weeks just had a thought loss last night to detroit. I think they've lost six in a row despite getting advance in pascal siachen back they should have. Janet will be back soon. But you know this team from the very beginning of the season has been all over the place. They've had injuries. If a guy's lineup they lost a bunch of close games Clawed their way back from a two and eight start but they're now in eleventh place in the eastern conference and you mentioned it with both kylian nor being free agents that could have pretty good markets this summer. You know. I think it will be really interesting to see what messiah jerk does over the next week. Because he decides to make moves with those guys and put them on. The market in a marketplace are not a lot of good players available. Those are two of the best guys that could get on the market. And if they are they are moved somewhere back and allow not only some good team to really significant boost before the deadline cross allowed toronto to a quick pivot and get a bunch of assets to kind of supplement. Their core of guys were signed going forward in pascal. Siakam fred van blee in ogen and it's right and i think listen they have taken. They've taken some hits with covid. And at times i think they thought they were getting well. They could run off some wins and make you know. Make a move in the east. They haven't been able to do it. Another factor that i know is on messiahs mine bobbi webster in their front offices i think a normal year because of the kind of homecourt advantage you have in toronto in the playoffs. We've seen it. It's one of the great environments. This isn't college basketball. And but i do think that that environment in toronto has has been a benefit for them they feel it and not having that in the postseason. I also think i think it impacts. I don't know what the percentage is but it impacts their thinking to even if they have fans in tampa obviously. It's not the same now. So i think some of the teams that they thought we could be competitive within the playoffs that we would You know that they would feel like hey we can make another run at this with his group They won't have that thing. I know kyle lowry and how they're gonna handle that how they are handling that is. They're not going to send him somewhere. They're not going to send somewhere they. You'd consider an outpost a lottery team for the rest of the year at a place where his bird rights for him. Arkansas matter because he probably wouldn't wanna stay there what he's done for the raptors helping them win a championship in a player. Who you know..

"Writer. Just a week now ahead of thursday next thursday's nba trade deadline. Tim how're you doing. Well agent. i saw you on the computer this morning. The first time i saw you since the last time i was on the pod with you at the all star game in chicago which feels like about seventeen years ago at this point. It's pretty crazy. It sure is yeah. It has been It has been awhile and hopefully we'll all start to see each other real time here Sooner than later. But tim to the trade deadline now within a week We had to deals yesterday. I wanted to start with those before. We start looking ahead. Let's take them in order as we reported him yesterday. Trevor aretha coming out of exile in oklahoma city to go to the heat Really a perfect miami heat player. You know big wing. Two way player out. Aretha hasn't played since prior to the bubble. He was an opt out in the bubble with portland. He played very well for the blazers in twenty or so games after he came over in that trade from the kings. And you know the blazers missed him in that bubble that was when they got up against you know the big wings obviously lebron and having the play them in the playoffs. They certainly on the defensive end Missed him that was a big part of of why they brought him in it. Certainly a big part of now why he goes to miami. It's funny sam prestige oklahoma city. I'm not sure he's ever done a contract buyout. He doesn't like to do them. And you look back a couple years ago when everyone thought while he's gonna have to do one with carmelo anthony or they're not going to be able to get the contract off. He found a way to move him to atlanta in dennis schroder deal with a pick in atlanta waived him at that time and he it again with a reza essentially gets a second round pick thunder get to two thousand twenty seven picks both last week its second round picks one from detroit in the al trade now to get one from from the heat and so now you plug a reza into that heat rotation and they played very well. As of late in he's a pat riley erik. Spoelstra kinda guy. What will how do you think he helps them. And you know what. What's the impact for aretha in miami. While you make a good point about aretha getting out of oklahoma city adrienne when you talk to executives around the league over the past few weeks the consistent word Out of oklahoma city was that they were not going to buy. Trevor rees out right. It's like you said going back to carmelo back situations in the past amp. Rusty does not believe in that he believes as we've seen over the past year in maximizing any potential returning get even if it is a second round pick seven years from now so made sense to me that they were able to get a deal done with miami and i think trevor can have a big impact for the heat. Now like you said. He hasn't played in a year noise. Been working out. But we have to see how he looks as a guy in his mid thirty s and played in a year in theory he should be able to give the heat a real boost as stretch for who can guard on the wing and stretch defense out to beyond the three point. Line miami although they play better lately. They've really miss jae crowder in the being in the bubble as you were for the playoffs. His impact on that he team was enormous. He had a ton of threes for them. He was a really solid two way player. Could guard some of those bigger wings would allow them to play bam at a bio at center and kind of optimize. their lineups and nomo harkness hasn't worked replacing in this year. They haven't really found a consistent. Guide play that spot. They tried to force kelly olynyk into it. But he's more of a four five as opposed to a stretch for Who can guard wings. So if a reason come back and be anything like the guy that he wasn't for the like you said when he shot forty percent from three twenty as before the bubble he would be a real big boost to this team. That as you said is rolling now looks like a team that could make a real run in the east the absolutely and i. i don't think miami's done they. They've been very active on some other fronts. you know. They've talked with san antonio on lamarcus aldridge. We'll see if there's a deal to be made there or maybe they pursue aldridge in the buyout market later but miami's a team that a lot of fronts. I think they'd still like to improve themselves in kelly. The name i think it's been involved in trade talks. You mention mo- heartless. That just hasn't worked out this year for for him going down there on out a one year deal and dragages in another one year. Deal last year So we'll see what they do with that roster here and then miami had been very involved with. Pj tucker he now heads to milwaukee. I think you really helps that team motivated. Pj tucker coming in in a contract year. What he does and the value. Pj tucker has on a winning team given the straits that the rockets are in listen. He he has struggled this year. He's not looked like himself. But i think milwaukee i think rightly so is banking on the idea that coming into that environment on a contending team with that group. He's just gonna. You can just imagine him getting in uniform diving all over the floor guarding multiple positions. Going back and hitting you know being able to hit that corner three For that team jon horst. Gm had been one of the teams. Along with miami of the lakers Brooklyn had interest for a while with tucker. I think that that faded a bit is they once they picked up blake griffin and and looked at. What else might be out there for them but you know that deal gets done because they owed picks going back they adjusted the what was owed to each other and then dj wilson dj augustine goto. Houston who you know could have three first round picks in a very very good two thousand and twenty one draft that will be important for them but Be i think. For jon. Horst and mike budenholzer getting pj tucker into milwaukee. Is they start to they struggled for you know they've had some difficult stretches this season but all of a sudden you look up You know they win. Without embiid on the floor in philly on wednesday night and now they're just a couple of games behind first place out of i in the east right still on the nets and sixers tails and i think all in all milwaukee's in good shape and now tucker comes in again a player who's pretty coveted role player in this place I think a terrific pickup. For jon horst. Yeah it's going to be really interesting aged. See how he looks in milwaukee because as you mentioned he was terrible when he was on the court for the rockets and talk to a bunch of people last night around the league. Kind of gauging. What they think tucker is gonna do. You have some people who think this guy is thirty five soon to be thirty six year old guy who does really have it at this point and then you talk to other people who have the same viewpoint as you that this guy who's playing on a rockets team that has now lost. Eighteen in a row after last night was clearly not going anywhere. James harden had been traded. The whole organization is in flux.

"Kelly had the call here on ESPN radio is the match. Get past the Clippers and overtime and tie the Syriza two games apiece. 1 35 1 33 the final for Dallas. 43 points for Luca Dodge, although it was those last three that had everybody's attention. He chatted with our Cassidy Hubbarth. You were watching that shop on and even you are surprised what with the emotions during that final play and what you have now It's a lot of motions way have amazing group of guys, you know. No. Clippers is one of the best teams in the league so hard that we can fight and I'm in is very emotional. You were down 21 stops is a late scratch. How would you describe just the energy it took to pull this one out? I mean, it's unbelievable. You know the way the team fight was a big on, you know. His name's been bothering him. It's no he feels really bad because he wasn't able to be in court. But you know, winning him. He's going back. You know, I just I just love a 42 points triple double your codes called you a bad boy, a gamer at all around tough guy. How, if at all, did your ankle affect you in this performance? I mean, I think it's emotions like I said before. You know that general in this morning that wasn't feeling very good, you know, But as soon as I step on the court and you go and you know, my team has helped me a lot yesterday, step people that you don't hear their names. They did amazing job with me with me the whole day. And that's that's there is over. Get you talked about the talent of this Clippers team. You're now tied up at two games apiece. What type of confidence is this team have now pulling out this win in this fashion, then we have confidence in the beginning, You know, obviously it's confidence even more now, but we'll have constant said from the beginning. Like I said one interview for them believe you shouldn't be here. But we believed since the beginning, Tio Luca.

"Undervalued, and I'm sure you see it can observe it to is just as a journalist, I think the relationship between reporter and player, and you can tell that there is respect and comfort, and you can get a lot more from a player when when they feel that with you versus if your approach them with the style that is in what they, what they like. And I think that's where I've seen grow the most this past season like socially, like LeBron I feel like he says things to you. He does not say to anyone else and you're not asking anything that different. You're just approaching him with your own Cassidy kinda style. And I think I mean made headlines share about him saying like, well, Kennedy asked me to. That's something I guess I'm learning to. I'm in something that you guys deal with because you are getting in trying to get information from people all the time is learning. I've never asked LeBron for any kind of favors or like, I think there's there's something to just trying to have a conversation, get to know people. I. And not be like, well, I need something from you, I. So that's a deli. We're gonna house that I'm sure you have to deal with all the time stressful though. It is. And you said something about not asking people for things and like there were guys who I don't see it anymore. But like when I was younger, I'd see guys like pretty prominent guys, asking players for sign this ball for my son, and it's like now maybe in the locker room before game, and that is not the place to be done that. Right. I don't see that. No, I don't, but used to because guys have somebody always asking them for something and I'm not talking about, we all know you don't ask for autographs and you don't like, we all know. That's like you'd learn. They want. You don't ask for any of those things. You don't do those things. But there is something to be said for being able to have a relationship where like and like you said, like, you know, you can have a conversation. You might have twenty or with any kind of a sore. You might have twenty or twenty five or thirty conversations with somebody before you. Actually there's something happening in, okay, hey, who's in this trade or what are the numbers on this free agent deal that I know is now getting done or whatever, but you better have twenty five thirty forty fifty. I don't know sixty conversations. I can think of people. I have that many in between news and you have to be willing to put that time. And you said something though a cast that Doris said that I never thought about how how NBA players maybe coaches management. Everybody, how they deal with women that has been doors, said it. We had like that sort of internal, I guess I can say it's a bad thing. It's off the record internal thing. Her Michelle Roberts did at ESPN one day during the season. And somebody asked that question that I never thought of the answer. She said, maybe she said at other places, but the fact that when she asked LeBron James question that he looks her in the eye, he says her name and answers does more to give her credibility. Or give a woman credibility in the league. And I think it'd give a man credibility. I don't think it's just but the fact that he or the great players are interacting with you in that way makes everyone else go. I should. I should that somebody else has questions real person not just, you know. So like a statue just. Yeah. Respect that person. I know enough and care enough to know they're naming that's LeBron though. I mean, everything he does on and off the court is this like this purpose to it. He's very observant of everything and he is. He's a student of the game, not just between the lines, but I mean he watches everything. I just think drew Brees call my name the other day when I was at New Orleans practice. He's like, Diana, I was like, yeah, he's get off the field. Well, that was the last time I really big player future hall of Famer, call my name, but then he's, you hear that the younger guys are seen. It's just, I mean, it is respecting it was really just like move which by the way I'm gonna need to get some tips on small, talk girls, not good at it so that the worse thing like going, no, go up to people introduce myself, and I think that's why it's a slow play for me..

"I hate to be like back in my day which you know it's kind of silly, but it's just true. It's just the nineties you left on the court. Yeah. Now you gotta just now guys in the NBA is going toward her and tweet about it, but your words using podcast exact said, even if they didn't leave on the court and carried over to the locker room or carried over to whatever Bart it was not reported like Tristan Thompson, Draymond green, we didn't hear about it. So it just adds a different layer of drama that just kind of fills up, whatever Reno, whatever locker room, whatever court you're on with we, we have the constant. Debate about? Well, not really debate. It's more of a discussion about why NBA Twitter, social media has really taken off in the last few years compared to the NFL and I ask players all the time about it in the locker rooms. In fact, I recently did like, why do you think that NBA just so much more fun? Why are they have a better time? And a lot of guys point to the fact that NFL players are more private, which I don't necessarily agree with because they're not private. They're just as loud and outgoing and you typical at times, you know, but this is what I want to ask you to. Diana, like it goes back to guaranteed money. Yes, security contracts in the NBA for the most part, pursued a great player. They're all guaranteed in there. The risk of getting injured and then being the league in a year doesn't really exist where football, like in the NBA the power is with the star player. The powers with Kevin Durant, LeBron James and in the NFL the power when we've seen it in the owners, it's with the owners and. In some cases, the coaches the, you know, the established championship coaches, but really we've seen it in this in the anthem issue, the power is with the league office and the owners. It's different in the NBA, the powers with the players. It's just to me, that's as much. Maybe you are less apt to express yourself when you might have to live with reprecussions in a way players? No one's going to tell star player who speaks on social issue, the knock it up. No owners going to say that to him maybe the NFL we have seen them say that to them, especially now they're all being watched very closely in terms of what they're posting, knowing and York with the giants. Ally manning was talking all the rookie saying, just get off it like we can't take any risks right now. Whether you know if you want to express yourself, just express it to the team at practice, express it here within the building. We don't need to be voicing it outside right now because of those concerns. But I think you bring up a great point of the guaranteed money and in NBA. A players definitely had that advantage of. They can basically do what they want. They can't. There's. I mean, there's probably maybe two players really only one in the in the league right now that can do what they want. And I would say it's probably Tom Brady because he's on his back nine anyway, he's sign will be done soon. I mean, unless you're buying all the TB twelve over here. Listen right now, Rogers were to go out and do something crazy who knows how the could affect is money. Look at Dell right now having to do everything he possibly can to show the near giants organization that he's a guy that deserves to be paid del Beckham is you know the closest player in my mind to the star power that the NBA players have on so doubt because people care what he doesn't social media. I mean, people care about Tom Brady, but like the fact that that doesn't mad, oh, the the connection. Dell has with young players and young kids. He's probably the only player in the NFL that the average football fan at a young age can name. You know, you go to these camps. Everyone has his hair and everything about them is marketing to play. The one had to catches has made him an absolute rockstar in the league, and he's gonna wind up, probably getting paid for at least what it seems like with with the giant playing ball with him now..

"I'm not as many games. I know I'm not as many games as you and the relationship between Jared Dudley and I were talking about this last week and and I talked to the officials about this like everybody saw it last year. It is the relationship between players and officials are much worse and it's never been worse. The ref. Feel like they're under attack by the players feel more and it wasn't just reactionary? No. Was really was the referees feel like the league doesn't discipline guys enough that when they, there's things that guys would say or do that used to be a suspension and now's barely a fine and guys can get away with more. And so you saw that rash of there was a run there, and I don't think it was by coincidence where they were throwing out one superstar after another Westbrook the rant. I remember a GM of a team with with, you know, probably a top ten player in the league said to him, you better watch out. They're coming for you. Now, one text gonna turn into to like that and you're gonna get tossed, and and we're teams are really warning there guys because there was no question. This was what the referees trying to send a message, like if you won't take control of this, then we're going to do it and you're not gonna like it, and that's what went on. And I just think now when you add this gambling element to where the pressure in the nastiness and the criticism that's coming at you, so you're getting it from fans, you're getting it on social media when you're that. Trail is going to rise. You're going to be taking it out on somebody who you're going to have the refs feeling that taking it out on players and coaches, you're gonna players, feeling it at times. I think that's good part of personality of whatever twenty eighteen is now, because what set on the court between players and refs is been said on the court for years. Okay. Few Mike up. What was going on during the Jordan years? Like like there's some nasty things said, but just like the players, it's a new generation of refs. You know, there's like the Steve javale's of the world who heard all those things and develop these relationships with older players is it's different. Now these these rafts are in their feelings for lack of a better word just like the players are. And so you know, we're. So I think there's so much more outward emotion in the game because everyone is so free to express themselves whether on social media and it's just amp. Defied because any little thing is a story, whereas something happens on the core back in the day. There wasn't like a Jillian cameras following around and then five post about it as soon as you walk off the court. So it just changes damage of how people interact with each other in general. And I saw that a lot and talking to, you know, coaches who were former players and assistant coaches about, you know, this new crop of refs in why? What was the differences here? Why are we seeing this clash? It's a combination of the power that players have today and how teams have been give their big stars as power. They think they're, they just can't be beat and they no one can tell him anything and the refs you know, also being a little more emotional. And I think the re- players feel coaches feel this way. And I think the league sort of did this by design. There was a generation of refs and a lot of retired or moved on that they all felt knew how to talk to them, knew how to communicate with them. And I think there was a time here. What was taught was with his younger ups. We don't want you interacted. We don't want this or players want to be able to have a guy. Tell me, hey, this is watch for that. Watch for that about that. And then they don't know how to talk to each other either. Nobody knows how to talk to each. Nobody's as they texted each. That's exactly what I mean by cicis is a change in how people interact with each other and everyone's so quick to be offended. And that just carries over even to sports where it's, you know, used to be like, leave it on the court..

"They want to try to shield them from attacks in criticism, and there's a push and pull there. But I think that's gonna be the next thing to of because gamblers are going to know the data uncertain officials and how they officiate and how I mind bet on those smaller. I just think like this is wow layers. I mean, side note is we think back on the NBA and the scandals that the NBA dealt with. It's just a hate to say this interesting because it's such a lazy word in our business. But like most interesting thing about this. Is that Donigi was like, probably one of the biggest black is the this league is faced, and now it's a complete like one eighty embracing this side of gambling in the league. So you'd still easier like college basketball, college sports, I think are so much harder with ficials to like you have a supervisor officials for conference. The NBA has access to your banking records. They know if you're lifestyles changing as an age and all those things were in place in Donna. He's still got through. But for the most part, there is a tremendous amount of oversight on officials and their lifestyle. And if all of a sudden if your lifestyle changed and you're living there to monitor that, and I think the referees like it because it makes it clear like we're not that's not happening, but in college where it's sort of like there's so many conferences and there's so many people who it's not really their fulltime job. They do it and there's not oversight and it's easier for in college basketball for scandal. Then I think the NBA because. You could fly under the radar much easier there, and these are people who are doing this all year. This is their livelihood. They're doing other things. And what you worry about is league is somebody who's a recreational gambler or gets blackmailed or somebody blackmail somebody, hey, I've got this on you, and now you're going to do this that is harder to pull off in the pros NFL NBA than it is college. I didn't college. As this goes is going to be an even bigger. It's not our world, but but it'll be it'll be even harder to manage in talking about referees to like, as you said, it's going to open them up to more scrutiny and becoming a story. So like right now, a ref makes a questionable call, take the LeBron charge or whatever, for instance, because there's now money on it like that is accepted that this is this is an accepted part of what this game is now with with gambling being partners with the NBA with. I just think then. People are gonna dig a little bit deeper into who these are exposed that because that's just kinda what the league is back to my point of the personalities and the intimacy that fans have with, you know who who's on the court. I, I think it's just gonna. Everyone's going to be a character. You've been covering sports longer than us just because you're slightly older than than Casson. I the. The while we're well, we're discussing all this. I'm thinking this is a gigantic shift in sports and the way we view with way we cover it. Is there anything in your career that you covered that because I think we're gonna look back on this. Remember when we had no clue how to handle gambling. Remember we had all these questions about information and behavior and data. You know, we're gonna probably sound ridiculous in six months. If we listened back of, wow, we had no idea or maybe it could just be small little blip, who knows how he just, but you know, sports networks are trying to figure out, I'm sure the rest are trying to the league. You're trying to figure fans or figuring out. Is there anything else in sports that has been this wild in terms of a change of how we watch and participate? I mean, I can't think like when you think of because in the end, it's about money. Right? What else has created potential this influx of money? And probably if you look back, you'd say probably national TV national TV rights, right? Like that's changed so much revenue, but even the referees, you're at more games than I am cast your courtside..

I'm sure we broke some New Jersey's state high school, sports law, listen. But now it's funny people have asked me that like, wait, so how can I do that?

So we were talking about gambling in the NBA like gin Lee has always been more closely associated with the fan experience with the NFL. And I think because there's more injuries like who's playing this week, there's more in and out of the line one day. Well, technically the big days one day. Well, I'm interested how it's gonna fantasy football at this point right now because that was a way around for people. To be part of the gambling world at this point. And I think I think it's gonna take a hit actually. I think it's going to affect the participants that are going to do that because why are you gonna play in a league with your friends, which is fun and there's competitive spirit. But when you could just go gamble and everything now it just it would. It makes more sense. I think if you're a football fan, I mean, I think this could change everything including what we're doing as cast mentioned before..

"And then he told it to me to like. He was going to Phoenix until remember they, they traded Marcus Morris to Detroit, and a salary dump and like the day before and they signed Tyson Chandler. They brought Tyson into a meeting with because he lamarcus in wanna play center enticing place center, and Portland was going to try to get Chandler if they kept Aldridge and they had brought in Robin Lopez there. And so the everybody knew he didn't wanna play the five. And so all of a sudden they signed Chandler and they trade Morris, a salary dump to Detroit. And now it's like, man, they gotta get him or they're in the sort of between place and then they didn't get him. He goes to the Spurs because the night before he was gonna make his decision. He took a meeting with Pat Riley and Miami, Miami did not have a cap space assign. And when I think Miami really wanted was just way too you're a one year deal wherever stay where you are even if you want, and then we'll have the space assign you next year, and I'm not sure pitch that way, but that was all they could do. But Pat though sold him that night about. Out sacrificing and being a part of a winning were innovation and being a part of something bigger than yourself in an anti was selling the Spurs. And so when he walks out of the room, wasn't his intention, but he kinda pushed Aldridge from the sun's where he'd be the guy to the Spurs and he ends up which fell in the line. With last words, he had her from pop in. So Aldridge goes to the Spurs instead. And so, but then when you can't get guys, you go, okay, let's keep right gutting. But now they've got a bunch of had a bunch of picks. They got some young guys and you know, they'll try. Why? No, right. Yeah. We'll see how that goes. The lottery reform will be like league wants to see. I think this year when they've basically flattened out the odds. So the three worst teams yet the same odd, it's not used to be, let's see, twenty five percent for the worst team eighteen and a half or nineteen and a half. I don't have it in front of me now it's all they all have the same odds and there's talk of even they wanna see how this impacts tanking and what goes on. But a lot in the league wanted to do. I think the league office wanted to even more drastic evening out of it, but they, this was a little bit of a compromise. And then I think they say, okay, how teams go about it this year? Is there less of a race to the bottom tier point with with opening Pandora's box with gambling this. This is a big seismic change in sports k. because you're you're the world of gambling. There's there's, there's a lot of layers to it, including and underbelly. So clearly there's going to be unforeseen consequences that we can't even think of right now that are going to affect. For lack of better word, the purity of how we consume the game. So this is this is going to be a defining decision for Adam silver's.

"They scared other owners and what they feared was, what if we have three or four teams trying to do exactly what they were doing at the same time, like it was bad enough to have one team that just had gutted itself was going to multiple now. Part of the Sixers thing in their defense. It went longer because of the injuries. Now they draft injured players, but like it really getting trade the Mark, Michael Carter Williams after, you know, like it was that trade that, like I feel like define the process because they're like, well, mean even though that that was some sort of pro promise they're, they're like, well, no, no, this is not good enough. We're gonna completely clean house and put a bunch of. Of, you know? Yeah, Jin leaguers and they just didn't want like how many teams we have doing this and it scared the league. Right? Because it was like, we just can't have, but teams are doing it like now, like when you look this year, you say, okay, how many teams are really not going to try to win what teams this year Atlanta's in that position? They are just we have lots of picks coming up. We're going really young. We're not interested in winning. I think like they're in that position Chicago, you know, they're tanking, but they've now put together pretty good. Lanta because the support around the hawks in Atlanta. I mean, Atlanta struggles as sports city anyways with Philly. At least you know, there's some history there. There's a rabid fan base famous. So there was at least some sort of people cared Philly. About what Phillies. I never thought Philly would accept it, and I give him a lot of credit and that way there's local TV guys were big voices there. We seen some other northeastern cities, Washington New York, Boston, even. But Philly. I always thought the bloggers had a lot of voice that the when the team wasn't good while the papers covered them. I thought that the rabid fans really followed. They had a lot of bloggers thought Hanky sold that vision to them and they sold it to a lot of that fan. But that's, I always felt was different. And I think when Bryan Colangelo came in and couldn't quite understand why they were also anti him anti Klan, Gelo family pro hinky. I think that took him back. I don't think he expected and even when Hanky left I wasn't. I didn't know that it would carry on the support for him and it did, and I thought that sort of allowed that city to get through that whole thing. Right. But not every marketplace event. So many GM. To me like we could never do in our marketplace. They wouldn't accept it. We can't. What about the Suns? All right. Let's talk about the sun. So let's not this kind of it's a great traditional MBA great fan base and they been in position. They they missed out last year on being able to be in the top of the lottery. This year, they get the number one pick, but it it's just, I mean, they've been taking for a while. I mean, they were the most blatant this year when it came to taking were the most blatant Alaska. But they were funny because there was like a year where they were trying to try to get big free this. They tried to get lamarcus. Aldridge didn't get them. You know, they tried to trade for Kevin love at not now a couple years ago where they tried to go get some us what they had to go get some big players when they didn't get him. They said, okay, it was funny when they do the Tyson Chandler deal. There was like a two or three day period where they thought they were gonna get Aldridge and I went back and did a big piece of Aldridge's free agency and I and I knew this from the people involved..

"But since I trust her voices and they've all been head coaches before, so I just feel like there should be some sort of, you know, we're all working as a team. I learned that from doors to by the way she did that. And if she can do that, then I can do that. Absolutely. And we listen, we worked together in the studio where you hosted the drought. We did the pre draft shows Bobby marks and they suck Greenberg and Mike Schmitz at different times have different groups rolling in, and so you've done that. I want to go back to that. But the thing that happened this week, the league, the NBA's. Partnership with MGM is really just like it's like a marketing like they're just gonna use the NBA's official sponsor of the NBA. Their data will be when you put down your doing off of NBA Dato like that's what that is. It's not so much the the gambling app or what's coming. But something big is coming here with the legalization of sports, gambling and Adam silver as opposed to David Stern very long time, wanted to keep the league away from it, and almost every level really Adam silver from the beginning. And I think that comes from the owners. They saw tremendous amount of money to be made and said, people are betting illegally, we might as well get in and and get it. But I think that the money could be it could be franchise changing for teams could be, it's going to be a lot, but I think there's going to be a price to be paid. I think especially for players when all of a sudden it goes from some as betting on the spread this team's giving three points or four points at traditional bet, but what is coming right is. You're going to sit there with an app and you're gonna be betting on maybe a quarter score. How many points is this guy gonna score tonight or seat from your seat? Right. Who's gonna out score who in the next three minutes that guy gonna make those two free throws. And when all of a sudden like we have this generation that just sits on their smartphone in just hits refresh, you put your credit card on their Twitter, right? And you're gonna just be betting. I think the vitriol that is going to start coming from fans and people who are betting who, like you said, they're going to be doing in the arena. Never mind the guy at home who's gonna go after you on Twitter. It's one thing to say, hey, you screwed my fantasy team. You didn't deliver whatever players here that, but this is going to be different. And I don't think there has been as much conversation or preparedness for how ugly. I think it's gonna get overtime, vitriol. I will also add stupidity because we live in. World where as he said, everyone is on their social media and people want to be, you know, on house of highlights or posted by sports are ESPN doing something on camera and being a part of the game. So a lot of MBA Twitter on a night tonight basis is finding like these weird videos are currencies that happened in an around the game. So what would stop someone from if they bet on something even running onto the court? And I don't..

"Hey, everyone welcome in to another edition of the wochit pod back and our west side. Manhattan studios with ESPN's Cassidy hover in Diana Roussy we talk about the NBA, the gambling, the issues that will come along with that sideline reporting NBA summer league, and some differences between the NBA and NFL, especially among star players. A lot of fun. Great. Our, here's Cassidy Diana. Well, this is such a treat, such an honor honor. Cassidy Hobart in studio in New York in your town. I usually only see you in Bristol, but yeah, we are. We see only see you on Instagram, please, please. It's my pleasure. My honor to be on your pod. Well, we already had lunch for some pasta. So if I start to doze off. But first of all, unlike everybody else who covers the NBA you actually work. Now, you got to college football, which to me is amazing because I know that you guys had the college football meetings up in Bristol, but like everybody else like all the other NBA people are disappearing into the ether now for couple months and like you're going right into college football, which is unbelievable to me is unbelievable. I mean, it works out because that season, unlike our MBA season in which is a marathon college football season is just a sprint, but is a fun sprint because it's just three months and it works out perfectly because it just happens to be kind of the off season just the beginning of the NBA season. So I can kind of do both, but it's kinda how I started my whole career at ESPN specifically. But even before that, my big break on air was doing college football. I really wasn't that big of a college football fan in college. I went to north western. I was a townie I lived at home, so I wasn't like that attend that when they were starting to get good where they still turtle? No, they were good. They were good already, and then they had a down period in, you know, since Pat FitzGerald took over, they've been somewhat relevant, but I was long graduated when he took over. But I started ESPN covering college football, and I've just been fortunate to be able to be connected to that really every year. Since I've, I've been at ESPN I've always done something related to college football, but nothing's more grueling than some really where we were last together. How many days are you there? I don't remember how many days that's a problem. I can't remember. I went from Vegas, so let's see. I was gone for a good bit, right because I was in, we were in New York for the draft. And then I went up the Bristol for free agency for eleven twelve days. And then I went to Vegas and my mandate was I wasn't leaving Vegas until the Spurs front office. Right. So the question was winter you leaving? My answer was, when are the Spurs leave? Because I was just trying to stay on top of the quiet Leonard talks and anyway, no, but then we went to LA. Then I saw, you know, lay like, but summer league like you have to work way because you're, there's one game after other. I'm not naturally paying attention the games. I'm, I'm talking to people. I'm on the phone. I'm in that green room in the back. Not trying to be funny. Sometimes neither am I because my main job is to get guests into get people to come on and talk during the game. And so sometimes I can't even pay attention to what's happening in the game. 'cause I'm going crowd surfing China to find people to hop on with our booth to interview. Because like let's be honest, we don't really need to break down every single play that's happening..
