Cleveland Cavaliers Beat Boston Celtics
"Lose against. This is a method upper-right. This is much as I have to say. That's it. That's unfortunate. So, you have time to Celtics have left John speechless, look at home. You know what? Bobby's going to say something. That'll accept me. More than what happened tonight? I'm sure. So, I don't know what. Bobby go. Go, go, go, go ahead. Now, the pressure is on the do it. I was going to say is that you should a sense coming into today, that's what Brad. Said, free game that the teams kind of packing in at this point they're in a good position to walk up 7. They obviously have some guys with some bumps and bruises here. So it wasn't surprising to see smart kind of packed in and we probably won't see him. The rest of the way. I'd imagined rabu definitely won't see the rest of the way as he tries to recover from that tariff do. I just wonder dog. Rodger and I were kicking this back and forth to start this one. Why is Tatum playing heavy minutes on a back-to-back? Why is Tristan Thompson still out there as he deals with a peck strain, you push in those guys and off the others back and you still don't even win the game. You kind of you said there in this game that you thought the Celtics were trying to win. John, I didn't see anything that pointed that out today. I didn't see it from an effort standpoint. I saw it from a strategic standpoint. You started taking them, you played Tristan, wasn't a hundred percent you played for, like I said, we can debate the merits of starting to remount Waters tonight. I understand the philosophy. I think you wanted him to calm down sex in a little bit. That was the theory behind that. I'm not saying it's the right call, but he clearly played the best. What he thought was the line up to win tonight's game, but I just didn't understand any of it, you know, like, you know, what's the point of planning? If you're not really going to try? What's the point of keeping Tatum out there till thirty seconds left in the fourth quarter of a game that had been decided for a while. Like why is dead? Still playing heavy minutes. Like what do you? What was the what are you doing? What are we doing

"As well. But let us discuss. Everyone loves playing the winners and losers game, But I do it all differently. I do well differently here. I have as a teacher. I have a report card book. I'd like to give report cards. Also what grades? He was the question. What grade? Did you give out the key trades in the MBA? Now there's on. Lee won a plus trade at the deadline. There's only one trade here that rises to the A plus level, and that's the Clippers. The Clippers get an A plus the bulls get I'm I give the Bulls of B. For their trade, the heat and the Celtics. I'm going. See, I'm going to see on that. And I'm gonna be the devil's advocate guy with the Nuggets. I'm not like the mainstream basketball media was not overly impressed with the Nuggets trace. I'll give that a D, and there's a bunch of APS. Better storing the losing locker room, the Orlando Magic Houston Rockets, New Orleans pelicans, the Toronto wrapped oars, the Los Angeles Lakers and the Cleveland Cavaliers. All get f C F F F F F F for you and half for you. And As for you, you in the back, you failed also. At that. Beth! Beth! Beth! Beth Beth. All right, So my thoughts on this You've got Dr Doritos and dunce cap the three days and we will tie all of these things together in an adequate. Adequate valor monologue. Now a the N betrayed deadline I will concede lived up actually exceeded my very low expectations. One of the great things about being a cynic and a skeptic. When you have low expectations. Occasionally, it doesn't take much to impress you. It doesn't happen very often. So let's enjoy it, and we're gonna roll up our Proverbial sleeves here and and get the worst. We'll start out with the on Lee, a trader today the people's team making the trade with the Atlanta Hawks, and it seemed to the uneducated basketball fan. Like a rather an Oculus deal.

Lakers Upcoming Game Against the Cavaliers a Must-Win
"Lakers on Friday play the Cavs and on Sunday play the magic Yep. This is the first time ever that a Friday and Sunday game in March against the Cavaliers and Orlando Magic. I will consider must-wins. They gotta win at least one of those two games for me to have any sense of confidence about the team without LeBron and AD, you know, buy them the Lakers might have some new pieces, you know, there might be a different look of things. But yeah the first time in history a Friday and Sunday game in March against two of the worst teams in the league will be considered most wins. Yeah. I completely agree with you. If you look at the schedule that's coming up those those are two of the lighter games the Lakers get then they get the bugs they get the Kings and then right after that. It's just a murderer's row of teams and given, you know, we don't really have a clear timeline on when they D and LeBron will be back like what Ron said those games are kind of month. End of the Lakers want to tread water and stay afloat in the standings because you don't want them slipping all the way down to six seven eight. Now you're talking about playing tournament which you know, I wouldn't be concerned about it. But Lakers are healthy, but given, you know, the covid-19 pet demek the injury that the injuries are being sustained so far. You just never know. So the Lakers just need to find ways to scrap together wins in the mean time tonight. Not a good showing and does not inspire a lot of confidence, but you know crazy things happened. So we'll see. I also just want to throw in that, you know, the trade deadline is Thursday. So maybe guys today we're a little stressed out or worried about that. So maybe that wage muted. I don't know. But yeah, we'll see we we just need to scrap together wins and those games on Friday and Sunday Kind of almost must win at this point. Darn

"Dick Hoyt passed away in 13 years. And again anybody who grew I grew up on the marathon route. This is every time that they would go by as the most inspiring moment of the race for anybody who doesn't know thirty two Americans with his son Rick who was a quadriplegic born with Cerebral Palsy and he ran it.

The Celtics's Defense Stunned by Lowly the Cavaliers
"Think quite a few of their problems stem from that slow start. So Marcus Smart had to end up taking most of the response offensive responsibilities throughout this one and you know, we often see how that goes. It got them back into it a little bit late, but it wasn't a recipe for success and I thought once you get behind on the offensive end you lose some of that defensive intensity. So both their issues on both sides before we tend to each other specifically for smart who I thought was so bad defensively in this one getting torched by those guards who can be great on some nights. I think those guys have potential sexton in Garland, but the same thing. Massive for you there that I don't see a little word or you know high-level guards for either of those guys their quality guards. They're inefficient. They shoot in the low 40s. They're 30% 3-point shooters that sometimes they can go off from that aspect, but the defense wasn't good enough tonight and a large part of it was because They were Jack and so many shots. They weren't moving offensively. They're missing a ton of shots. So they've given feed out for Cleveland again on transition and as they've done all season they gave up points in the paint a flash in the pan looked
Atlanta Hawks Down Cavaliers 100-82, Win Fifth Straight

And Drew Brees
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo again refuses to resign
"Have been moving fast. In governor cuomo's ever expanding set of scandals of the past forty eight hours from the news that his office apparently reached out to a number of different former employees to see if they'd spoken to The first accuser which seems weird an intimidating and it turns out that a former aide says that it was in fact intimidating and she felt bewildered by it to yesterday during an emergency meeting and state assembly announcing is going to be Starting an impeachment inquiry involving both the allegations of sexual harassment and assault as well as the nursing death scandal to about forty percent of his entire parties members in the assembly in the senate signing on asking for him to immediately resign and then there was this morning when representative alexandria ocasio. Cortez tweeted that after two accounts of sexual assault four counts of harassment. The attorney general's investigation. Finding the governor's admitted nursing home data from the legislature in public saying we agree with the fifty five plus members of new york state legislature. That the governor must resign. There was a letter that she put out with congressman bowman then at least eleven of the democratic house representatives from new york called for him to resign and just including jerry nadler button adler by the way and then just as we were going live. Senators schumer and gillibrand both also said that. His time for the governor to resign. As of this afternoon he said that he would would not which is what they always say until they do but he seems like a fighter jank for. What do you think is he. Is he gonna stick around no matter how many people tell them if biden gets involved yeah. I'm really curious what you think. Francesca there's one part of this tournament so that's already interesting of they. There's nothing that i'm talking about. In regards to andrew cuomo he's establishment democrat extraordinary. and he. he's been wrong on so many issues. and he's attacked progressives and good meaning people in behind the scenes a thousand different ways and a he's a political apparatchik extraordinarily now he's claiming like oh i'm just a regular joe. Your name is cuomo governor governor. Don't pretend you're one of us okay. You're an ultimate insider. Any use insider system to attack all of your opponents. You've done it for decades and and as anna keeps pointing out rightfully so the guy caught four hundred million dollars for medicaid actually overall customer is slated to be two and a half billion dollars to talk about of doing it in the middle of the pandemic delayed for after the pandemic but some of the cuts had already that he had done was the reason why they didn't have enough hospital beds and that's why he then took. Two people from the hospital was put in in the nursing homes and then everybody died nursing homes and so for all those reasons he already was a terrible governor from a perspective of people who i was gonna say progresses but really anybody critique of him is correct is my point sexual harassment issue. The only thing i have here is that. And that's why i'm curious. Were both of you guys. Think about it part of me thinks okay yes. Let's go through. The process like seles. Allegation is groping. If that's if that's true that's he should be gone within the minute right. So that's not an that's not a question. The question is how are these. Six six is a lot on the other hand. If you remember al franken it had piled up to be a big number but every one of them was like a fake picture. We took her picture once and put his hand around my shoulder and they were like. Oh levitin mike though. That's not eleven right. That's let's have an investigation so there is a part of me that says is you know. Do we have a. We sure that these are all true. One hundred percent. We can act on it and i get the other point. Which is they all. Have to be one hundred percent true. There's six of them. It looks like we've got an obvious pattern here. So francesca what are you. Oh yeah no. There's when this first broke weeks ago. I was like i've never been more sure that there was a giant iceberg underneath this very very tiny little tip that we're seeing sticking out of the water. You knew the goal and just it's it's his. I don't know. I'm not trying to be anti talion as someone like. Don't don't go to the mafias a brand new things but like the guy in clearly in exactly all the reason that you said in the ways it. He's bullied around his political opponents for years in the ways that he is so trump being in that he's got an gotten everything from his father and then also in the cavalier ways because some of these incidents were while he was rising to stardom. Which i gotta say man. It's been real fun to watch him fall as someone who was never on board for the rise who was look. It's a doing the absolute bare minimum the absolute bare minimum thing. You should do believing in science locking locking things down even though. I don't even think he did that. Amazing of a job. Yes i said it like. It's been nice to watch like. Oh here's the real cuomo and and like it's funny to me that there are so many cuomo's around this country there are so many sort of middling mediocre like kind legacy politicians dynastic politicians. who escaped by they. They assault a couple people. They bully their opponents but they kind of then. Then they get applauded. They come out with a book and they're fine. But i feel like the meteoric rise that he had under covert and the way that he laid into it so much just set him. He set himself up. It's like you could have just the way that trump could have been absolutely fine. Just doing cameos on home alone. Five or whatever it was and then he had to go and run for president And now we're looking at his taxes. So look here's my thing about resignation. I feel like it's a little bit of an escape hatch. And i think for when it comes to actually having investigation actually and as painful it as it is like having the people came forward to testify or discuss it absolutely like not or at least have an investigation. I don't know what it would look like. it feels. There would be more accountability. And i think that so many creeps and so many predators getaway in the workplace because there's no accountability to begin with so i'm not even sure if immediate resignation is accountability. Do do you know what i'm saying. Yeah i actually francesca. I love that point in that gets the another problem in the political system. So cuomo keep saying. I you know i wanted attorney general to do. Finish the investigation as letitia james and if we all believed that our democracy was on the level and politicians warn politicians. I'd say definitely finished investigation. Because i wanted to if he did it and we get it then that gives us closure as opposed to well. He's resigning you to deny it forever. Because then they won't bother finishing the investigation et cetera. Right but the problem is i. Don't trust politicians so is cuomo part of the reason cuomo's doing because he wants to delay it and then he thinks if i can just delayed thousand other political maneuvers to avoid it and the and then he keeps saying he wants so much that i a wonder is fisher. James doesn't look like a political ally of cuomo based on her previous experience right but one if she is something we don't and then they a bs investigation. Those women took you know suffer a second injustice so you think yeah and i just think it's important to mention though that like the investigation of sexual assault or harassment claim. Is it so hard because it is always a. He said she said type of situation. Which is why we have. Things like the slogan survivors right And believe women which because you have predators who will always deny it. I do not foresee a future in which andrew cuomo admits. Anything that i can be sure of. We might hear more about the stories from the from the staffers and the and the people who were he victimized but i do not foresee him being. I guess i remember doing that. No it's not gonna happen so again. I just want set that up that it's not a fair you're never gonna get to the truth kind of thing.

"cavaliers" Discussed on The Woj Pod
"I think that I'm working the same amount of hours but I it's different hours and it's all basketball and really been lacasse rate and I think the other thing that happened gene is when we started in October. You don't go through. September usually go through where you're you're in a hotel room four days a week. Then you're hosting recruits on weekends weekends you do have a little bit tiny charged up for the season and that was that was attractive to me in this change in lifestyle they. I know it's eighty two games but it's probably only sixty practices and instead of thirty seven Games one hundred twenty five practices and then. It's just a year got over last year. We lost in the sweet sixteen tain. I went on the road for like twenty eight out of thirty days. I was on the road. You know just trying to figure out what the next home I needed to get into so that cow's games have been so good to me and not complain about one bit but this was the right time in my life to make this change why coach basketball right now build a culture be around around this incredible organization. Billy Donovan said something to me maybe somewhere in his first year after he had left Florida and Gone Oklahoma City that in college edge you spent so much time talking to and you know courting and trying to get to know players you're never never going to coach and that's where all your time was and you spent so much time in people play players you work in a get where whereas in the NBA you could invest your time remember at that time it was a summer he was out at Ucla working with Russell Westbrook in the gym with his guys and and and the other thing he said to me the two initially was when practice sends in College. What's the first thing you do you gotta go Gregorian phone. Get your phone who did I. What did I miss and in that sense. It's liberating right now. It really is down the stretch and I and I mean this in a good way but because I don't want an axe out. I did not come to the Cavaliers to escape from college basketball. Ask Good Ball but it was really compelling. When I first got my first call from the cavaliers you know it was an early. May and one of my assistants look legit tremendous guy says as coach don't forget we got a load about fifty names on your own because June fifteenth is coming up and you can text sophomores and I I just looked and I said thanks for that that I get the sixteen year olds here in days later so it's all all good it's so good to us but at the same time I was able to this time to find just we spent so much time with with my Assistant Assistant coaching staff in September and the team but more of the coaching staff of how we build this instead of saying to my we're where where are they all tonight whose busy season and then you didn't get the have those those meaningful times as they've taught me some of the NBA language all of these things. It's really you're more prepared for season. Then you probably were in college. John Your priorities in trying to understand what you needed to understand now and what of yours that you were gonNA. Bring that absolutely translated where you had to adjust and you said like the language of the League the verbiage the knowing once you get into an eighty two season the lack of preparation against you coming when you started to sort of you coached in Summer League and you had your staff together there. What were the first couple things where you said. I think this is the most important thing I've gotta understand. I got some advice from several people people on this is that this is a very transient. It's not as much as college really in some respects but you're you might get a trade in the middle of the year you you might get a guy that you only have seven days to thirteen days for training camp to get people's ready and you can't have a completely different language than the rest of the League. So what I try to do is change our language to. It's the same thing you know where. I called a bullet. They might call step up. What I call a pistol. It's aside ball screen and so I just rather than have fifteen guys changed in my language. I change their language but if they if they didn't have a name for it I'm using my old name because I personally had names for everything so that people could we could learn it. I think's a great way of learning they associate actions usually a story behind it and then they don't forget get it going forward. We would debate at several where we're going to call it because I would go okay. What did you call it. WHAT IS IT MEMPHIS call it. What did you call it here last year when I talked to my front bench and they'd probably give me three different name so I said well so it's not universal there. What fits bats best? What can we learn the best so it's well but that was the biggest thing. I think John Cleveland was not the first. NBA team you had talked to who had called through the years. Detroit situation was interesting a couple years ago because because number one you know you didn't have to move it was geographically but it was a very different team in a very different place very veteran laden laden with the cap like this was going to be a roster and Cleveland was different. If you wanted to build a program and teach cheech and maybe do it from the ground up. This was the one four that this was the most appealing again breath. I wasn't leaving a great place like the University of Michigan to go and just be an NBA coach. That was not the goal it was the right situation came along on that was really appealing to me and the other thing that was really appealing. Is You know I grew up in this the Buffalo Area Ben in Michigan. You know I've been in this rust. Belt Lake Ontario the chains I love it. I love it and my four children are fairly close by so. That was another thing if you're going to go to the NBA this. This is the situation but it was what was most appealing to it was this was we're not using the word rebel. We're saying this was like I make the comparison to rocket mortgage orange field. How's that place had good bones at grit tradition. It's just needed to make over in some areas and that's where we are right now. Where repurposing reinventing doing things remodeling our culture way. We're GONNA play the whole deal to really keep up with the Times other or college coaches guys who coached very long time in the college game have come to the NBA. There's been varying degrees of success like most NBA coaches. It's usually built around around. If you have really good players you win if you don't you're probably GONNA struggle but but other people though I think different coaches at different times shruggled with college college coaches and you and I think the coaches and I think you've seen this group that have come whether it's billy Donovan Brad Stevens Evens. Jay Wright is a coach who has had the opportunity may do it some day and you fit in this to me. The common denominator is you're coaches who understood that it is about the players weren't necessarily a celebrity and that's important in this league but I thank you. There's a different intrigue with this with you. In some ways I think the people it feels a little bit like an experiment because and I just think having and followed your career the whole way. I heard these things about you. At every every time you jumped up it would be well. He he you know John runs better stuff than everybody else else but he's not going to be able to recruit at that level. He's going to struggle with that and he's not going to and then you go to another level and then you go Michigan while he and then you're in the national championship game and and again in the final four and I think that's the question again wil John's style. You're coming in the league at sixty six years old. You're mostly guys came younger. It feels like people see this as a little bit of an experiment different than some of the others. Do you feel that no. I don't feel as bad till exact same way when how many people said when I left Lemoyne to go to Canisius. What what are you crazy? You can use the worst program they won five game you know also when we go to. Richmond and then West Virginia January like people were what did you do that and then I remember a really successful coach when we left West Virginia and we really had it going and and I had a very successful small college coach at that I tell you that was a stupid because Michigan's never coming back and I was like that's exactly where do it because you think it's still and so. I think that there's there's some things that just are so transitional every coach if they just follow them and we have some experience in rebuilding and it's it's built through coach a lot of coach being humble humble embracing the process getting everybody to understand. This is going to take some time. Everyone took time except Richmond Bridge. We we had a bunch of good seniors but we've you've done it before and we're GonNa do it again. It's there's no question in my mind and it was something that sixty six it was like I feel as good as I've ever felt in my life when you look at the next president of the United States either one of them could be seventy five years old. Those are demanding jobs to sixty six is young in many respects. This is far as boy. I'd I've tried to keep healthy. Keep up with the game and be very evolve as a coach valves as father evolved parent evolve love as a as a person. You have never been an assistant coach. John you came out wheeling Jesuit and seventy five you go to new faint high school. All you go to see if I knew Faint Highschool Erie Community College Nazareth for one year right right and you can attest. I'm not reading Nazereth Lemoyne for nine years yeah contentious for five years. Richmond four maybe four five years and then and obviously in West Virginia for five and Michigan for twelve always a head coach. What what is your blueprint is a coach because your your you're somebody that a lot of people whether it's your offense people WanNa emulate we were practiced today. Load of college coaches and people want to come in. You've always had people who wanNA come. Your offense is not in a book somewhere you don't hand out the John Beeline playbook or you've not sold your book. I don't know if it's written anywhere I think it's on on scribbled on chalkboards all over the east. What was it about having never been an assistant that maybe shaped you in a way that that worked for you..
