I mean the other goalies and there were like ranked around this area. And i had to go. He's already well. I need another goalie. So i'm going with thatcher snatcher. Good good choice. Good choice. yup yup yup. So i'm glad about that not as need to fill out some of my defense in here but i could go for some some forward debt. There's actually a really solid talking pickier. Holy shit i'm next. I'm going to go all the rest of our auto. Yeah other autism. Like the next one's if he doesn't go. But i think i'm going to go blake wheeler here I think he was your take. I was gonna become who. I mean because the people who are over malkan always hurt never picking that guy ever again co petar. I don't really know too much about him. Which i know is like kinda messed up to say. I don't feel confident with him. Likening backward i a block. Would i don't need any goaltender. Dentists tarasenko going with them. Then it's more goaltenders blake wheeler so like. I feel more confident. I feel like their team. Sick so yeah faulk now can. I'll never drive that loser ever again. Fuck now cannot have never draft at tone humna homina homina homina so around. Ten out of sixteen bro. I need more defensive but there aren't any defense up here so i know me too. I need to start going defenseman. But i have four bench spots left so i'm gonna go extol right edges auto draft for me williams all right. I guess yeah Let's look What's going on in the chat. Did they say anything about me. No they didn't send any saying anything about you. There somehow power play points should be worth then or whereas worth less. Thought it was worth even shrine points really. Yeah because it's easier score power poles and stuff so it's kind of like a handicap on that it's kind of nursing them. I one thousand percent agree. I don't know why was ever for five. Yeah i don't know it's kind of five. Does that make sense like if we did like do do they have the rules in this one was that do they have the rules for us. Here leak settings stack categories. But it doesn't bring like a fucking point total. I was trying to look before. But i didn't get to really see them fully. That's fair in a. I'm a i'm a. I'm your next dude literally just goaltenders. You know i'm going to go. Were jeremy's wayman. No musher soldiers went. I was just doing research on this guy. Fog hurt homer here. I could be could be a homer. But honestly truthfully i think that the top line is gonna be phenomenal. Show the islanders. I think i think andrew come back. He's going to do phenomenal. If he's getting five for power play points then okay dude. He was having a season. Career can be career. And you see those squads. He's coming back coming back enough squads. Bro there's like no defense in left oh my is like did we know why. That are like ranked. Well yeah jake muslim. i didn't like last season polak. He's not going to do a whole lot for you. I'm defenseman here actually. That's what i'm trying to do it. It's like ranked like two hundred sixty something else. What do we think yoyo. A lot of points this year martinez. He did good for me last season. What sorting by rank or expected rang. I want to go by rank now at home. I feel like that's not bad. Oh my god i was. I was far up. I'm sorry i'm a dummy. What are we at right now. Currently 166 for that suspected to. I have to start going defense from here. I got two more bench players to go with forwards. So i'm going to that i really could. I'm just going to have to go ahead. Yeah we're gonna go defenseman here because we have another pick coming up. I'm gonna go all the way wiser fucked up. Oh if i can sense. I can nine eight seven. Six five for it buddy. Who me i got taylor hall. Do not get the get the fuck outta here. what are you talking about. That's how i feel data. I like this team. i like. I generally like teams. I think i'm gonna go with him lou lou. He's technically on is the better team. I've a decision makes what's your decision. Oh you're behind me and behind you. So i'm gonna wait. I'm going to go with another ford. And then i'm going to do to defend. Yep go with forward here. I know what you're going. Because i haven't even looked yet i look. I don't know if you know going i think i do. Okay i think. I do or his initials tt literally. Oh fuck exactly. I was looking at the other one. I'm literally looking at him right now.

"Is it. Like arguments gonna facetime. Let me let me talk about. Let me talk about this for real. Oh my god. What have mess what. I don't understand what's like understand what's happening anyway so My fourth place team. The winnipeg jets team. They were really solid top six on when we try to look at their team right now but again Daily off is lagging. Like a motherfucker for me. It's like freezing my laptop. So that's super fun but yeah i mean they have a good top six. What do they have on it for me. Right now. i think they have Ilias faulk who else kyle connor super good. I think they didn't prove their decor a little bit. Although not by much but also they've held book so i think that he's gonna be completely solid for them Just like he has been he's been consistently really well are really good for the team The past couple of years. I think conor hell book is again like a toggle in the league. I think i've said that the foreign podcast Any of the improve their decor lose mason appleton. Which is probably the biggest loss in the world now but It's it's pretty bad about him. Six Finally i have this up. Jesus fucking christ brought with still a not loading asni blake wheeler. I forgot that and hopefully he can start bouncing back. They also andrew cop and the bottom sakes who is a solid third liner Yeah i think that they could just week in the playoff space on connor book really. Yeah interesting interesting. So number four. I put the stars. I know you mentioned that. They were aging. Which is a concern for sure I just don't think it's enough for them to fall off. As far as you might expect what i will say though is i think. They got fucked by kobe. Last season they were one of the earliest teams to get it and it was a whole organization. They were shut down really. I thought i felt like it was like the they had. They had before the season started. I guess it was the same but they had a. They had a full team outbreak. Only have like i thought. Yeah okay because they had a full team outbreak later on towards gaining the head. Jordi bannon j. t. miller up player. So yeah day. We're like one of the first teams to my knowledge that had like full rosser outbreak which was super unfortunate because they were team was holding the stanley cup final. Yeah they were saying like oh yeah they were in the final year before you know everybody was riding hot on them and it just didn't happen whether you could just blaine coverted. Probably not you know what it was an off season fear. And i think that they're going to rebound from it Now they're one of the teams. That i feel like is more well rounded compared to other ones on a lot of other ones are very young. Again I feel like the experience is very very good Do i trust them. Being a playoff lock. Probably not a wild card. Now what heard Yeah i just i. i don't. I'm not convinced on the team but i i i do have the number four. I do like them here. Sorry i said a lot without saying no sorry so third place. Third-place have the blackhawks. I do think they are going to the playoffs. The i think top tops is just super strong. Yeah there tops is why especially patrick kane. Alex debrincat absolutely nuts curry dock with a full year. Jonathan taste coming back. I do think that The top six. I think tyler johnson is a good addition to the team especially because we'll probably be on the third line says jones. Yeah he's overrated his contract wise but i still think he's a solid defense of the addition of jake mccabe. I do think good as well and not to mention. Marc andre fleury Not to mention. You're not to mention out flurry. i do. Think that he's going to be a solid addition. Hopefully keep us a net for them. All we don't support the management of blackhawks. I do think they are going to be a playoff team to the top. Marc andre fleury via no. This is definitely the team's last hurrah to yeah. I would say this is like their cores last. Hurrah there last time for sure. Yeah i mean. I have very very very low. It pained me to put them there. I i think kind of like myself out definitely but We'll see we'll have to see the chicago. They're definitely gonna be team to watch. The very easily can make themselves a push Number three. you're done your. I'm the number three put the blues. I put the saint louis blues The addition of butchnevich was sick. Solid signing for the team or trade. Right fourteen those already solid beforehand and. Let's say bennington plays as advertised as advertised quotations. i think that he's i think he's gonna be good dude. I think i think it's going to be solid blues. I think easily making the playoffs. So i'm going to agree with that. I do think the blue zone. That's why they are number two in the central for me I think jordan kyros extremely underrated on. I think he provides a lot of Like stuffy wouldn't that stuff that he passed the test. He has good analytics. He's a super solid middlesex. Winger on this blue team house them online and on the third second line. He'll be great The additions at brandon saw excuse me and befell bujanovac. Like you said those additions are nothing that ask their top six lot and this team right now is with or without letting tarasenko which. It doesn't look like any moves. Corrosion their relationship maybe damage but he's playing for another trade partner for another for new team. I do think their defense is a little bit If justin faulk continues to not play up to his contract however they just resigned colton parade to a good contract. So you know. I mean i don't know about that yet. Bennington i don't i i've just never been sold on. I know i think he's a loser but Say if plays as advertised. I think advertisers loser to me so if he plays like that. And that's awesome. No but yeah. But i think they just have a good team. I don't think that there's a superstar on the team. It's more so just like a team a good team and that's that there's going to be team. That would win playoff games. That's why they got the cup finals and won the cup two years ago three years ago. I'm sorry was it three years ago. I think four. Yeah yeah it was a so. I think that's what's going to carry them is that they have the identity of being deep team. So yeah it's my number number to put the jets. They're canadian team played in the north division last season. So i feel like it's going to be hard not necessarily hard but i think there is going to be a little bit of an adjustment back to the regular like back to other teams. I mean i guess the same can be said for. Every other team is probably unfair for me to say that necessarily but i felt like the north was one of the week divisions out of all of them last season. So fuck how the so that. For some reason. I have a hard time justifying could be wrong though obviously. I've been wrong plenty of times before. But i really do. It's gonna get bad. Yeah cross now he is. I can't play this season faulk. I love their top six. I think they're top sick. The only question mark would probably be wa The only argument. I would give for him even though he was traded early on last season You know he didn't have a camp really adjusted to team right away and again. It was weird season and they played a lot of back to backs. So you throw a guy into a situation like that. I feel like majority of them. Which kind of struggle. not that. He really struggled too hard either. I was super super solid on top six and even their debt. I'm not even worried about. I kind of liked third line of andrew cobb lowry and assuming this is a rookie hearkens but i like to to the center in the left winger there. I like that not familiar with their bottom line there but their defense solid they got your boy nature mitt. And they're now. He plays a good defensive game so not that he really has to because he has held buck behind him. Who can literally stop anything thatcher. Last season touchdown helaba is like the second goaltender league. She's better than he's better than sarokin. On varlamov i dunno. Abc's three Well i don't know anyway myself diffuser now so kind of how he's gonna steal them games. I think they could squeak up to two. There are at least gonna make the playoffs. I think they could squeak up to two. Yeah yeah. I see them making playoffs. I think yeah. I think they're more wildcard team. I'm not. I'm not convinced about the decor interesting interesting interesting. So number one to nobody's zero avalanche avalanche. Now ready for the no. I mean there's literally not much to say. I mean you know. They have one of the top teams in hockey. You know i mean a lot of people together everybody division. Yeah i mean. I don't know they lost. They lost philo group our so maybe that plays into people's screw was in even all that he's the one who kinda shit bet on them in the playoffs. He was good for them. Yeah yeah for them in the playoffs but he was in the regular season. They brought darcy kemper. Who is a solid solid. So maybe i don't know. I mean it's is to be determined but he played in Arizona still played super well so they always there is You know the the consistent argument for lada goaltenders. At you know it's the players in front of him and i think that that's something that probably helped grew our. Hopefully kemper is like what he doesn't seattle because seattle's dhammika playoffs. Oh dude i probably make the playoffs. But i think it'd be wild anyway. We're not gonna get ahead of the pacific division. Because i have a lot of reservations as you could imagine being connects fan about the way that people were overrating seattle. No i don't know about overeat but any we're not talking about seattle. Fuck vegas i. it's like so a big can fuck massa and so now thing is fucked vegas anytime someone mentions the golden knights fuck vegas Be the best team in the division hands down out the best in the league. I mean they have like third league. They have mckinnon. They have car one of the best benson league and drafted so hope. He hope he goes off. Yeah i mean they just haven't seen so yeah so they're they're a great team. Very deep defensive very shocked that they were in first division. It'd be shock. Yeah right maybe the predators will come back and carry them with the number one seed. Yeah so i guess we'll take a quick break. Real quick take a quick break. Go to our mock draft set up so everybody stay tuned and we are back. I do believe. I hope. I press the right button since now. The record option school took a quick also switched mice. It's in my face now. I'm holding like i'm an interview. Were we have five seconds. Mock draft and we only have five out of ten participants so this should be awesome. I'm drafting fifth themes drafting fourth drafted loading boop boop boop boop very slowly right or metro bowl. This is not solely compared to my internet connection at probably what you're used to. I'm actually whereas used to a lot worse so all right all right all right. So i'm assuming it auto pay hicks the first three right. Oh i hope so. I hope it doesn't do the whole two and a half minutes if it does. This whole Mock drafts about shit. You had the fourth pick. Yeah you have the fourth pack. Am i picking now known They still pick i bro. They they get into the fold two and a half minutes or three minutes or whatever. I hope not. Maybe it's just going to go to two minutes. And then he goes. This is what i was concerned about earlier. We should have definitely has. This out is cool. I'm excited fuck. Are they really gonna wait. Oh this might be a dub so like. Is there chat. Is there a chat room. There's no pounds hot around soon. I know this is what i was nervous about. Wash it. maybe there's another site that we could do. Nhl mock drafts. Well all man the posts on the draft coverage and now the first overall from the oilers. Nick what do we do. So this is the Okay watery draft draft i. That's not what i wanna do. That's not.

"Well last night last night. It was funny. One of the one of the guys like me like ten forty five. Eleven guy was like all right. That's enough picks for the night. Yeah night boys what we're like. I was like still up. I'm like i was ready to go. I was actually kind of close to six away. So i was like what the fuck. Yeah it's not like low key. It's kind of trustful and then this today today evening. I don't know much about it. Because i was kind of like not attention. Yes so before before even continue. I just want to say that. I was okay with how everything was going like a little fresher longer. Taking sure but like it was okay because this is what we signed up for us so like i knew what you're signing up we knew what we were signing up for pretty for me at least pretty late but i knew i was okay with it. I wasn't complaining. I was definitely cooler. But then today something happened Apparently there was a mess up some miscommunication along the lines of like how the point totals. We're going to work out and it was a discrepancy turns out that there was a legitimate discrepancy on the way the rules were set up so it was fixed suggested. I think we're all good to go Kind of spoil the end but Issue with how power. Play points win if it was like a bonus and stuff like that. Apparently it's minus point or not not minus. But i don't know yeah lately it was. It was weird again this. I have no idea what's going on. Yeah normally And we'll we'll talk about this. Say when we start we just you know for the most part. Go with deformed do standard standard. Yahoo like you know So anyway we'll also. I feel like you offer. We do head to head things where it's like you know you're versing somebody per week. This is just a culmination of all the points at the season and winsford and then the justification was that it's like i didn't even them the rules when i did it but but what's it called so i was like the fox is there. They were like oh yeah. It's for whoever has the best team and everything i'm like. Well yeah like. I don't know i like the gnashing up against somebody each week and everything head-to-head feel like like that law is gonna be my like my tertiary league. I think i'm going to have like five leaks doing a lot. Plymouth so amari playing football too. Well we both are And everyone was like throwing twenty fuck you. We just said this is. The freelance was end up anyway. Who who back story just to keep a long story short All of a sudden like. Oh yeah we're complaining. All i made my picks based upon these rules which is a fair assessment. Because i'm sure that guys like some like sheet that he's messing with and all of a sudden. It was being thrown out that we were going to restart. We are two days two days into a hockey draft. I've never heard of that my life. I understand like this is something new. We are two days in only in round seven minus twenty rounds or only around seven. And you want to institute as in you wanna restart i. I was like what no way on. I apologize multiple times even while. I was saying it because i was like. I don't wanna be the guy that's complaining. Yeah but like we can't restart like i like my team. I like my team. I'm sure all the nine other guys probably feel the same way and like i don't know there was a lot going on a lot of back and forth about. Should we restart can we. Just change was back then. People are saying no people say like there was so much banter back and forth about what was happening and it just kinda shooting. Because of i started getting like hostile. Yeah couple of guys got hostile. I mean i know. I came in a little warm. I don't feel like i was attacking. I hope now and again. I was making it abundantly. Clear that i'm not complaining exactly but like what the hell are we gonna team name by the way because i just realized it was still like my. Oh yeah i am probably gonna change my. I don't know what i'm changes too but Long story short were not cancelled. We're not restarting. We're not doing anything. Crazy adjusted the rules back. I'm sure they'll probably be more complaints about that more drama. But there's right now. I think i think there was just someone. But i am making sure that guy was basically like yo shut up. How really having. Yeah all right all right so yeah no. It's it's rumfeld it's cool. All the guys are cool. Really like all them. So i hope After the draft settle down shoot the shit and everything be chill chill by. Yeah what else do we have for us. We don't really have any news what we plan on doing this episode. We're going to do essential draft. You know predictions right. Central central division rankings rankings predictions. We're going to do that. And then we're gonna take a quick intermission and then we're going to transition to yahoo we're gonna do a fantasy mock draft both gonna join a leaks. It'll be us too with whoever else joins it and grandes randy's grandes and see how see how things turn up. So i hope you guys enjoy definitely a little bit different normally. where like news based. Yeah yeah yeah. Shoot the shit on that. So seven can be a different pace. But i'm more than excited for it. Yeah definitely oh my god right. So are you ready to go. rankings up. I'm already i know. My phone is blowing up with everything that's going on the sham can have them unfortunately. Not a negative bro. Oh my god i said. There's so many times. Read the mayor message. I know they're bugging so this is not that deep. I'm sorry it's just not that. Deep real quick. I do want to say some thing Apparently according to dalai while the closest comparable for least patterson's next contracts michener around eleven million per season long term which a long-term do one hundred percent persons wanting to be wondering if that were to happen. But it's not any who so central vision central division. Can you tell her unprepared everyone down. Loki unprepared no. I mean there's nothing wrong with that. The central division was definitely harder to i gave up. Who did we do last week. We did the atlantic. Yeah the that was a lot easier. I'm also like not as i think it's my lease like invested division. We counting team in this division. I don't think there's one team that i have like a fiction for respect the avalanche. But i don't really care about any of them any who will know. I like the predators. I do like fuck it. Let's run through it. Yeah so number eight. I think it's unanimous right. Yeah i don't think there's any debate. I think everybody listening probably feels the same way the predators. Yeah the predator arizona coyotes coming in at eight. Yeah if there was any doubt this team is sell. Sell sell rebuild rebuild rebuild. I mean they have a million and a half picks anymore because they get probably a couple five first round pick sir. This team in the future is going to be sick but maybe once they find a home. I maybe they don't fuck up the draft by mean that's looking at past. Islander picks his very easy to mess up especially fifth overall michalak. All so i mean. They a lot of their team for draft picks. You know what they needed and really only good pieces. Really they have very clean. Keller jacob chechen Hopefully they trade catch. I was gonna say. Hopefully phil kessel a thrill some point. Maybe just can't even hopefully trae point for maybe like a second or something Like if he does really well. This season apparently the price. Apparently the.

De'andre jordan headed to the lakers. I'll shout out k. Debates diab just signed with a two year deal with spurs bob any of those moves catcher. I yeah i mean. I think Obviously the great news of aldridge back on the basketball court after having held scare. I think that's great to have him back in the game of basketball because you know when he was with portland even was san antonio he was a great player. Just knockdown shooter from that mid range and for him to be able to be back on the court with the brooklyn nets. I think that that's a positive thing. And then i think the pill. Paul millsap You're the denver fan. I'll get your thoughts on it also but Pretty good signing. I mean you're getting some veterans In that locker room with the brooklyn nets some great death. I think paul millsap is a guy that can still definitely contribute for you off the bench. Or if he's gonna start Will wait to see how that shakes out. But now you have blake griffin paul millsap and lamarcus aldridge in that front court. It'll be interesting to see who's gonna start at center position for the brooklyn nets team but Yeah they added some good depth around. Obviously your big three with kyri. Katie and james harden. I definitely a showers. Lamarcus aldridge for comback. Healthy the awesome and paul millsap. I think like you said is going to be a really good signing for the nets air just so deep right now i mean. This team has so many options literally every position. You know you bring in. John carter you bring in patty mills James harden kyrie irving joe harris katie. Obviously and then they headed is all these options at big place. So many different ways jane johnson. Paul millsap lamarcus aldridge blake griffin. Nick claxton someone.

"Today. We're joined by central division expert. Zach carson hit over down the past week of nba action for the bucks bulls cavs pacers pistons zach. The bucks out of Landed really trade over the weekend getting. Pj tucker on. What do you really think that gonna mean for them. And and what do they go from here so that trade was huge for a bunch of reasons. Not only did we have. Bj tucker who's incredible defender. Great locker room guy and corner three shooter with a lot of our offense runs through the corner threes. We were able to when we got rodion crooks and then also traded torrey craig for no player just for cash considerations which is nothing just cap relief to the bucks from four hundred forty one thousand dollars under the heart. Get to three and a half million under the hard cap with now to roster spots. So now we're going to explore the buyout market and even though we did trade our backup point guard dj augustine. We have two guys. Were looking at isaiah. Thomas and jarrett jack filler backup. Pg rule anybody else that comes available on the market so that was a huge trade because we made cap them got a great defender could shooter and to russell spots when you put it that way goes so much further than just the player for player transaction. What are what are the this week in general and how do you think that he He was gonna men with his team. Dj is a perfect struggling this year. He shouldn't thirty one percent from three. That's just because he's been unhappy. The offense hasn't steady new coach new system. But there's a reason he's paid. He has a thirty two million dollar contract as a thirty six year old. It's because his locker room. Presence is unbelievable. He's a vocal defender. He's the lockdown defender and Middleton lopez in tucker lineup. It's hard to score against them. So what makes straight even more impressive. Is that by rule. According to the you're not allowed to trade first round picks in back to back years if it's not a part of the same deal and the bucks a get rid of almost all the Holiday so they were not actually able to make this trade unless it was only with the rockets because the rockets had the bucks twenty twenty two first round. Pick which the gut. From cleveland in the kevin puerta junior deal and so they gave us our own At twenty twenty two and we give them are twenty twenty three first round. Pick one nine protected which obviously will follow one nine. Which was the only way that this trade could be eligible so they gave us our own big back and we just push the picked back. One year still gave him the two players Both dj's dj wilson dj augustine. But it was a very impressive. Move by john to be able to do that. And then with j. tucker since futures been on the rockets for more than three years he has rights which means we can resign for your seventeen million dollar extension at the end of the year. Which we'll see how that goes if he plays well. We might look into doing that but he is a thirty six year old with maybe two years left. Hopefully you can play the same capacity but has contract. his salary's can jump about twenty million dollars is going to be a lot of games. Played with the stay under the luxury. Tax arca awesome breakdown of just how the wreckage trade has all the rules and regulations that go into it another team in division that might might look to russia changes as the chicago bulls with their of auto porter. What do you think having for the bulls not in that situation. So the bulls are five five in the last ten two and three post. All-star break..

"Also they just need a win games that they're supposed to win on. They lost the recent games in the bulls and they had come behind beat the raptors recently and they also barely beat the king last night. So i mean they they have to beat these teams that they're supposed to be make the playoffs pretty comfortably. I'm excited introduce our central division expert. Logan knock computer breakdown. The past week of nba action for the pacers cavs box bulls and pistons logo. What's going on what's up john. I'm excited to be here as you said my name is logan knocks trump. And i'm a freshman at the university of missouri columbia. I'm a diehard trailblazer fan. And i'm very interested in the nba is a whole awesome stuff. Logan to kick things off here. Can you tell us a little bit about some exciting developments going on. Yeah so the pacers. Just added kerr sliver in the blockbuster. James harden trade in with his six assists per game compared to only depots four point two. He appears to be a better playmaker than olivo. Lavar averages around two points per game fewer than older depot but he also averages around six minutes less per game than the now rockets guard by trading older the depot. The pacers got rid of a player who may have left next summer. his contract expires. They decided to play it. Safe and trade for a very similar player with two years still left on his contract by doing so. They got a talented player in exchange for the depot rather than ending up with. Nothing for him should. He have walked this upcoming summer. La- still has time to grow with this young pacers team and if he ends up meshing well. This is a team that could definitely make some noise in the playoffs. Great stuff logan definitely sounds like a really good addition to the pacers lineup. Would've lost games been like for the patients. And what kind of team is carrying over joining. Yeah so indiana finished this week with a one and two record including it somewhat disappointing loss to the kings. He's definitely joining a great young team. Democratise bonuses growing closer and closer towards his father arvydas bonuses legacy and he set a high bar the twenty four year old is averaging nearly twenty two points per game twelve and a half assists per game and almost twelve and a half rebounds per game and almost six assists per game so bonuses led the pacers to the six best offense in the league..
"central division" Discussed on Sports Gambling Radio - By BangTheBook
"Of affairs there for chicago who is already a pretty difficult division with the realignment here in the central division. In what should we just talk. Central division today stint next week. All right let's just talk central division here just with the team's news. We can talk west next week maybe west and north next week and then maybe the east the week after that but here in the central division i mean the blackhawks were already going to be up against it any way a very good tampa bay lightning team. Maybe the best team in the nhl. The carolina hurricanes are an excellent team as well dallas stars of course made a deep run in the bubble columbus. They're always a feisty team. Maybe nashville takes a step forward here. This year the panthers they always have talent. It's really about goaltending. And how well they get performance there in the net then detroit a bottom feeder but here in central division tampa bay plus one thirty five at benham. Gm sportsbook carolina plus four hundred dallas plus five hundred columbus plus seven hundred nashville seven hundred chicago twelve hundred but that will go down now a with that tapes news. Those are odds to win the division. Here what about the central division which is pretty spread out here and the interesting thing about the central i think is that unlike a lot of these other geographic divisions were these teams are playing each other all the time. This one's kind of a mix and match of both conferences. Where you know may take a little more time for familiarity and some of the bad blood develop. Yeah listen tampa. Bay's the favorite deservedly so but they lose kucherov. You know league hart trophy winner. They just traded coburn and paquet to the senators. Who are you know solid core players because of cap constraints in the stanley cup hangover thing. A little bit. i mean. It's a really good hockey team. And i still think they have to make another move to because they've got some salary cap issues. You know that the bottom line is you just get in the the difference is there's no conference anymore. So you just gotta when you get playoffs get out of your division and fans aren't thing so tampa bay is gonna be fine But in terms of the regular season to me the team. I would play on his carolina. A four to one now. The goaltending is still. I wouldn't not great. It's not hideous. If you've gotta you know razek and rymer. And i think they're kind of the same goalie. But i love the team. I think it's a really good team. And the thing is when you're handicapping games this year and i can't wait for this to start. I think the intensity the way that's going to ratchet up is going to be something special and all the back to back matchups. I think those things are going to be. You know really something to watch but you gotta handicap the backup goalie to. I think the goal the bag of goal is going to play less games than they normally play total gains but a higher percentage. And you know if you win the first game of a bag to back. Maybe you're playing your backup and the other team because we can't lose two in a row so we're coming right back with our starter in the second game. You know the handicaps gonna be terrific now for tampa bay as good as they are the best celeski but curtis mcelhinney the backup. I'm not hideous. But he's certainly you know in nothing to write home about either. So i kinda like carolina in the regular season in that division. That had four to one. I think that's you know it's a semi decent price. Let me ask you this about you. Know really both tampa bay and dallas here. Quick turnaround coming out of the bubble. Obviously these players had a long period of time off with the covid nineteen pandemic got back at it played sorta those qualifying round games then played the games in the bubble where they actually got through the offs and of course crowned a champion with tampa bay in dallas. Do you worry about you know. Maybe a bubble hangover so to speak with this quick turnaround. Yeah that's actually something to consider. I think of the funny thing is what we're seeing it on display in the world juniors and i'm watching a bunch of prospects really closely and i'm watching like Okay well wait a minute now. They're into the third and fourth game and a. Oh okay there. It is well like those kids hadn't played a game. I mean a game since march and you could see them all shaking the rest of you're sitting there and form an opinion on a guy when collectively the passing and all the things that were off. Because they've been on so long and they talk about the seven teams that missed. The playoffs haven't played since march a but those teams are going to be juice. Champing at the bit and don't mean dallas and tampo want that long gauntlet but a lot of these other teams. They were eliminated too so they really haven't played that much hockey. Either so it's going to be really agendas and and by the way if you can play yourself out of the playoffs in october in a normal year you you start one in five in this sprint. You're in trouble so the start is critical. The start is critical. Fifty six game regular season. Here you play everybody in your division seven times in the north division. It's a little bit different where you play in your division eight times. Excuse me in the north division..

"To be at that level, then you feel a little more calm. Let's try to accelerate this thing a little do put a couple of weeks. Contracts together go get that other player increase the roster but yeah, right now no and they they finally get out of the tax after you know the Lebron years, which is not a criticism where it's the right thing to do go into the tax those years heck. You made four finals in a row clearly it worked. But they're finally out of the tax. The last thing they should be doing is pushing in here because it's just not there yet though you know it's it's going to be another long season in Cleveland. Building and you're going to be boy you're hoping is keep everybody healthy. So that way when those trade offers start calming, you can sift through them and find the best ones and moving those guys because because. Yeah because. There's no way you can't look in a single guy there and say next time this seems a playoff team. That's the Guy, right? Yeah. That that's our guy that just doesn't doesn't exist he could be garland or sexton could be. That's a couple years away before I. Feel Yo- any anywhere remotely comfortable saying that it's either one of them. Yeah. Yup. Agreed that's where the cavs are at and I think they'll be there for another year. I. I I think that wraps up that the Central Division Exciting de Division. I mean some interesting things with the bucks and the patients of course, and then you've got some other teams that are that are GonNa have some challenges ahead but it's the NBA. You're always a few smart moves away from clearing things up. Next thing you know you've got a path forward of lots going on around the league obviously hopefully, the next few days we will hear some some final more concrete news on win it starting and what the CAP is is set Adan and maybe win free agency officially begins even though technically already. Lots. We're we're we're one. You know Whoa just twee away from this whole thing unraveling of so-and-so's agreed with. Once the first player comes out this whole thing's GonNa Fall Art and at that point if you're the NBA, you might as well say screw and it's open go go talk open the slug it's yeah. Yeah man we're. We know where we're getting. Down to it who. Would that. So yeah. It's great. Yarmouth. Were we're back at it doing this every week because they say know this is this is the time right I we talk and all this stuff maybe next time. Okay. See as a coach probably by the time we hang up probably know they'll. They'll of heart kept looking at my phone. For but. I'm probably what fifteen minutes too early. That's right for that. So fifteen minutes from now is about one nine news will come up. Yeah, man it's out. This is great. This is this is awesome. There's so much good stuff to calm and it's the NBA it always delivers. That's right. There's always something exciting happening during the NBA off season and that's why. We love talking about it nick show we're going to do the southeast division that means we'll be talking about the Miami Heat and some decisions that they're going to need to make moving forward especially if they're going to be targeting a maybe free agent.

"There's just like a are they too good of friends, maybe. Yeah. I don't know their relationship, but it seems like they're just goofing. Like they're just buddies and it and it shows yeah, there's definitely a big part of that. I think that like they like to just mess with each other constantly and then like a check mark will go out on these like weird clutch tangents. We're like, he feels the need to defend like clutch clients and like that that's what the entire final felt like to me and it's just like, all right, man, cool. Like we're going to have their own stick. Yeah, they each have their Mark has that and then Jeff's is wants to change every rule. Oh God. Yeah, Jeff. Jeff gets way too bogged down in the officiating which is just hilarious on a number of levels. But yeah, I know like I'd be really interested to see what they each would look like away from one another like would Mark be a little bit more palatable. Maybe I don't know. Yeah. Well, I'd be interested to see yeah. I don't know if ESPN's going to do that anytime soon though. They tend to be Pretty successful with what those who are accomplishing right now. So for sure. All right James, let's jump into the Central Division here. And I think we have to start with Chucky because they're off-season is by far the most important one in this Division. If only because you can make a case that now that that feels, you know fait accompli that Anthony Davis is certainly going to re-sign in Los Angeles. The by far most important decision is what Yiannis decides to do with the supermax and I think I will be surprised if he does sign the supermax if only because we're entering a new Financial reality where the minimum is actually getting her the max his max. I'm sorry is going to be slightly lower than what it could have been dead. Just by starting the steel in 2021 because it doesn't seem like the salary cap is going to spike this offseason. If it does spiked up the 115, like I feel like it does kind of create an incentive that is a little bit different and unexpected for him that you know, maybe he could look into that but I think the big thing is finding out where the salary cap settles and if it makes sense for him to sign a supermax the summer if he even wants to stay in Milwaukee and look I I tend to take him at his word when he says that he would prefer to stay in Milwaukee throughout his entire career, but it's also a business and he is one of the three best players in the NBA off at the end of the day..
"central division" Discussed on Dunc'd On Basketball Podcast
"Restricted area and just Kinda, see like okay, do I expect him to make this or not, and then see what ends up happening whether he kinda exceeds expectations based on who the defender is, and where he is and where he's taking off from, and he had a few plays, whereas like okay. Wow, that was pretty nice. He's getting good extension on these layups. He's double pumping. He's got good field to get around the guys, so I thought he looked better as a finisher, even if the percentage wasn't quite as good. So I like that and then the fact that he's only hit that thirty nine percent from three as well so I would give them a six, I think he also got better defensively in particular, reducing his foul rate was essential and I think he wasn't. Those Pacers Bench units did pretty well when he was out there, a lot of that was so bonus and just gonNA to the fit of those guys and going against back, but you use able to be an effective NBA player like he wasn't hurting the team. At eight twenty three is a six foot point guard. That was all to me, so I would give him a six. He's another guy where yeah, do I want to put all my chips in. A future star, no but I think at a minimum. He's going to be a solid backup for a long time. let's say that about Tj Giulio Aaron Holidays former college teammate it's. I brought up Caleb Swanee and a few other guys before these power forward only guys who get taken in the late first round actually teacher Leif was eighteenth, forgot that he wasn't like twenty eight, and it's just. It's just a struggle because they have to have to be efficient on offense, they have to be capable on defense and it's true. I mean leaf in limited sample size all three years. Be You know he played foul? Five hundred minutes I played less than two hundred this year, but forty nine percent true shooting on nineteen percent usage just as a small park. You know seven point seven minutes per game on this Pacers team and I I was just like what's the point. I it'd be maybe maybe he should have declined his option. I agree I mean just we're. We're GONNA because he wasn't gonNA play Yeah Yeah. Exactly I mean. We've talked about this for a long time with him inside and there's really no. He didn't play even though they don't really have like a traditional powerful on the team like if they had wanted to go at that route and you were any good, maybe could carved. Carved out from time, but it it really yet like he's got to be a given his defensive limitations. He's gotta be a really solid offense, a player to be worth playing and that's was out the case this season, even with the bet that he made thirty six percent of the threes. Unlimited minutes just doesn't really do anything else. That is going to scare you. They also have a Edmund Sumner at age twenty four. Played three hundred forty five minutes have a long six skinny defender has some pick and roll ability at a little bit of reputation of the scores coming out his Avia remember. They signed him to a two way because he's coming off a tornado. Seattle and they've been trying to develop them I. Know My guy j Michael has been really high on his defense but I haven't seen that much of him. He doesn't really have any kind of A. A bread and butter offensively reluctant three point shooter, and at know probably like six five one eighty. There isn't that much that he can do for you defensively at the Guard position and you know I don't think he's like Bruce Brown type defensively Al wouldn't put him quite at that level to for some of that. We talked about already today so yeah I think he's worth continuing to develop a on the back end of the rotation, but. I would if he had to ask you another. Going to ever be a rotation player I'd say probably not and then I'll Johnson. We always fifty four minutes from in this year. Not these man without a country that's loved the way that he rebounds, but he's Kinda. You know like six eight to fifteen, and he's been working on it on his three point shot, but It incomplete firm and we haven't seen at the big league level at all and Enough guys here I didn't have time to go and look at his his G. League film, but you know with this being it I. Think this a second or third year. Second. He was drafted and twenty eighteen. Yeah, so didn't take any three-point attempts in fifty four minutes, and but really the fifty four minutes is your. Team obviously, so it's not totally damning, but he seems like more of a G. League type of player with that physical profile. Before we get some news got one more team to get to the Milwaukee Bucks and the main guy. There is Dante David Chen. So this was his twenty-three season, and really I would say his first full NBA your memory only played four hundred eleven minutes after an injury plagued rookie year, coming out of Villanova and this year played thirteen hundred minutes, and did was an important part of the League's best team before the hiatus defense, average nine points, five rebounds and twenty. Three minutes game twenty two starts fifteen p. e. r. fifty-seven seven true shooting on seventeen usage. Usage and importantly thirty four percent on seven point four three per one hundred possession. Yeah, the shot is probably his best asset, offensively the versatility of it particularly taking deep threes. Oh, come off screens every once in a while. He's not shooting at like you know. Legs Akimbo on the move, but e e can come off a screen shooting. Shoot it from a few feet behind the line as well. He's got solid aggression there so thirty four percent was good. He had that truncated season last year. Also worth noting by the way that is really an analytics starling. And he plays in the box. They've agreed system. I wouldn't ascribe a lot of that benefit to him, but I think he is a quality player provides nice. Plays from the to guard position and anytime you're a guy that young and you're rating. As one of the best players in the NBA by some of the plus minus Butterick at least makes you take notice. Off. On that, he is for the for the full season so far twenty-seven in our PM and twenty ninth in. Which is pretty incredible for a second year player, but I I think a good way of describing that as you know the value, white the value he creates an offense, so he did run pick and roll about Zoe. Their one hundred five, where he took a shot out of it. You know totally creation there, but a lot of it was you know hustling for transition, being a capable spot up shooter, and competed really hard and defense, and even deserves a lot of credit for doing a great job of what he was asked to do. And Mike Putin Holzer I'm sure that's part of why they have faith in him, but we got asked why we didn't talk about much in the. All the future stars Podcast, and and that is because to be. That's a different standard, and it comes to the idea of scale ability, and it's David jets can do what he's doing right now very well, but a star has to take on hot role, both in terms of the CIA, the difficulty of what they do, and the volume of what they do. Do and maybe under under selling entirely possible, but I just when I watched even Chen's Oh. I don't see that guy who can dominate more possessions in career for himself.
"central division" Discussed on Dunc'd On Basketball Podcast
"Center. That isn't like a star. That's just like I. Just don't know where they go in like in the League today. I think they're actually underrated because you still need players to log those minutes and I think. He could be one of those players, but I also think that he has more upside because of the defensive tools and I think a lot of the offensive challenges that he had as a rookie or are are able to be cleaned up with his skillset. Yeah, and again the thought that you have the shooting potential is someone that might separate info bit from someone like poodle now I will say pertile to me is more athletic speedier in transition, finisher and probably better fees. That's donder tip. Yes, yeah, that's the todd's is not really you? You don't. I wasn't like wowed by how hard he was playing out there. Necessarily and. And do think Jus I don't think he's really great. Finisher is not really an a threat. He can block the shots, but that's really more about length. He's got a really load up as a role man getting all limited minutes here, but numbers were a little bit disappointing and he's. He's not gonNA be able to go in and dunk on. You really didn't seem to have like a ton of finesse finishes. He kinda relied on like short flips around the basket. That didn't seem to be particularly. Accuracy didn't look very facile moving into the lane, catching the ball on the move and traffic and finishing so I don't think he. I could see him. KINDA evolving into like a pure pick and pop specialists. As time goes on, I don't think Yankees a minus finisher around the basket for a center at this time. Maybe as he gets stronger, that could change. Yeah, I think that's fair but still if you can shoot, you can block some shots There's probably a place for you, and so he just think he with reasonable improvement in those areas, he could be A. A player, let's go to Aaron Holiday. The youngest of the three holidays, and the this was his second season age twenty three season, somebody played a couple of years played a while at Ucla and holiday started twenty six games out of the fifty eight. He played largely due to injury was like he was stirring. It was just that could broaden victory depot both meantime nine point four point three point, three six and twenty four minutes a game Twelve PR fifty two percent true shooting on twenty percent usage, and all those the like the rate stats are pretty similar to his rookie year. And but the one important improvement holiday he after making thirty four percents of his threes, as a rookie made thirty nine percent this year and kept his his attempt rate. There's an dropped a little bit, but you know stayed pretty pretty pretty well, so that's something worth keeping an eye on an said that you wanted to talk about a little bit as his rule with the Pacers is unusual. Yeah, that's important to talk about here. He's not playing in a pure point, guard role and a lot of times on the second unit, which is his normal role. He and TJ McConnell would play together, and so that left holiday really much more of an off ball role and particularly I think prevented him from doing much setting up others because McConnell is going to. To dribble and dribble, dribble and probe, and then he'll pass it to you, and it's your turn to you to make a play in score, and without the him writing and he spacing. It's tough to really set guys up as well so us as be more of a score also when he's playing there, he started some games when Brogden was injured so in the starting lineup, he's not going be anywhere close to the biggest threat, the main pick and roll guy. You started some games with Brogden as well when they're shooting guards, rod, vitriol deep, obviously being one of those so just. Important to note as well I do think the way that he shot. The ball was important to be a viable player. He's got to get up to thirty nine percent now. The problem is two point percentage drop to forty two percent, who and is finishing got a little bit worse. He didn't play much last year. Obviously but still not atrocious for a small guard like him at fifty six percent around the rim, but really like Florida range mid range was really struggled for him. So that's how you get that forty two percent from two. That's that of course is going to have to get better in. Getting to the line very much, so that combination is really hard, and that's what leads to a player having fifty two percent true despite Mickey. Thirty nine percent of their of their threes and I think context is also important so a couple of different other stats, I wanNA mention for holiday one point three eight points per possession, catch and shoot point eight three on off the dribble that is an and so he took some bad jump shots off the. Like like to have a usage of nineteen percent. Like okay. You know he's probably pretty judicious, but he's still. He just has a bad habit of coming off the pick and roll. The guy goes over the screen, so he's trailing him, and then he just tries to squeeze off this jumper with the guy on his back, and Russia's at a shot. He must've shot twenty percent of those shots. Yeah, that's a big challenge and that's also part of why. We talked about the context that low low efficiency as a score as a pick and roll ball ballhandling, and not much better if you add in, his passes a little bit better, but again, some of that is context I mean my my instinct holiday I haven't seen enough juice from him to think that he's a starter in waiting, and that twenty three years old you WanNa? Give him a little bit more time, but not a ton, and there's still a place though for a capable, you know somebody who could shoot off ball can maybe play. Who has a little bit more on ball when you put them in the right circumstance, but remember that you know they they. They took Holiday Inn in the first. He was the twenty third pick in two thousand eighteen, so we define terms on whether that is successful or not for them, but if in terms of development score, I'm not gonNA. Go Super High, just because I? Think that what we saw from him is useful, but it wasn't as indicative as what we're going to need for him via longtime pro, so I'm I'm making him a five. Just because the shooting was better, but I'm not sure that it improved like my stance that you'll be like a ten year MBA player or anything like that. Yeah, it's interesting on him. I mean I enjoyed the aesthetics of his game. Thought that despite the fact that the stats were a little bit lower, I thought he still He took more shots in the restricted area and I thought just watching him that he had some pretty impressive finishes like sometimes. You'll just I kind of like to just mentally freeze it when a guy goes up for a shot. In the restricted area and just Kinda, see like okay, do I expect him to make this or not, and then see what ends up happening whether he kinda exceeds expectations based on who the defender is, and where he is and where he's taking off from, and he had a few plays, whereas like okay. Wow, that was pretty nice. He's getting good extension on these layups. He's double pumping. He's got good field to get.

"Overall, some of it was not having the first half of Israel here, but some of it was also thirty percent on four threes poor. Four point three three thirty six minutes five point eight per one hundred possessions, and getting to the line, a little bit more, which is important about an extra time per game and considering he makes eighty five percent of the three throws. That's important, too. I think the question was sexton. Clear answer on this one way or the other is in order for him to be a viable MBA starter. It's Katie. Create enough. Kennedy create efficient offense for himself and others. He certainly created a lot of offense himself, and I'm still not there on the passing it in. It's more kind of the basic stuff of that. He doesn't. He doesn't like see the. He doesn't always see the openings that he creates and that. We're going back to when we talked about Lamelo ball a couple of weeks ago. That's a hard thing for a guy to improve on because. It's kind of like. Do you see the guy that SORTA problem? Yeah, and his passing those interestingly something I'll do a lot of times I'll look at guys assists at I'll say all right. How many of these are actually good passes where you're adding value either number one? You drew enough defensive attention to create an opening that even if it was an obvious pass afterwards that you. You still were able to execute or a pass that maybe not everybody would have seen. You got the ball to a guy in a position where he can really do something with it, and you know you kind of created the play. It wasn't like Oh. He came off a screen. The three point line like you actually were able to like thread the needle and can actually. Actually if you watch the film of his assists, they actually looked better than I expected. They actually better than dearest garland. Who will talk about in a second? It's not just like all the assists are odd. Just dump it into the post to the guy. And then he takes three dribbles, and he scores with those kind of boring assists where you're not really adding much value. Value, thought. He did actually make a few nice plays. Ice Dump off a good entry. Guys behind the defense but there were just exceedingly. Few of those plays add moreover very few of them are driving kick. Type of plays in the cavs are not exactly a wash in shooters at times, but other times Kevin love is out there. Garland is a decent spot of Julich. Osman is is okay so sometimes airplane to judicial bigs that made it harder, so he has improved as a finisher. He has improved his decision making, but I mean when you look at the number of shots, he takes compared to the number of assists I mean he's gotTa have one of the worst ratios for that in NBA history for a guy, his size like six, one or so and and so that's still remains a pretty big problem for him. I think and despite the fact that he's made real strides in other words, but just you know three assists a game for a guy who's averaging twenty one points, a game and a guard in today's. NBA is just atrocious. If we want to scale it one hundred possessions, sexton takes all do that one last he. Assists three point six turnovers twenty four point seven field goal temps. Yeah, yeah, and now I mean to shoot thirty eight percent from three on four attempts game. He began shooting more threes in the second half of last year, and that to me really changed the outlook for him like I have hope for him now because of that three point shooting, which it didn't necessarily look like it was going to be a big part of his game coming out of college, so that is encouraging that he's improved that he sped. Sped up his release. He's aggressive from three looking for chances to take spot up threes as well so all that was good. You mentioned that his mid range shooting and Florida game is a little bit better as finishing a little bit better. I mean to have that type of usage and league average efficiency for twenty one year. Old Guard is on on on. That, is not making life easier on him. You know they're giving him plenty of usage, but it's not like it. They're helping his efficiency. Got Kevin Law at the four. That's actually they do. Screeners enrollment. That's true. Yeah, and you know. Tristan Thompson is an amazing, but he can screen for you a little bit. He knows what he's doing out there like. That's not an Georgia's frontcourt. They have nobody at the three of course, and they just have no overall passing so I don't know I mean it's just. It's tough to fit around him if he's not gonNA. GonNa pass more right if you're gonNA say this is the guy that we are going to give the ball to the most to create if you can't average more than three assists a game in today's NBA with the spacing that we have. That's just maybe going to prove their know I. Think he does work. Reasonably are I think he wants to get better and he's got. got a little bit of a scores streak. Shall we say I knew defensively I think he wasn't as bad this year every once in a while, he can get into the ball and make plays, but he's you know completely powerless as a help defender as backcourt, mate Garland and also worth noting that it's not like the coaching situation there in his time has been particularly. Particularly stable, either so that something else to realize you know I think he has developed all like I'm actually pleased with always developing just coming from a very very low point for much a a last year and anything else you wanted to say about immature for Development score is between six and seven I think he's I think he's done well the one thing that I. Need to I, think he. Is a incisive cutter like you remember that you don't that he had when Zach Levine let him go back door at the end of that game against the Bulls. He looks to make a good cuts. When maybe the play is not there as a spot up shooter, so I liked that about him I also wish that he were just a little bit more explicit explosive with that I up keys a decent leaper, but But I don't think he really liked blows by guys and creates the separation, and so he's as to continue to work on changing speeds refining his jump shot to get to the basket, but I agree with you I would. I would give him a seven I mean. We really questioned whether that shooting was real and I think he's largely proved that it is this year. Yeah, I I'd say slight improvements defensively, but. It's it's always hard when a team is this awful and he's a guard, so it's like you know it's not. It's not necessarily Garland's fault. In the coaching instability. Everything else started sexton. Let's get to Darius. Garwin Oh boy number five number five pick in the twenty nine hundred draft age twenty season, after basically missing his whole college season at Vanderbilt due to an injury, twelve points, four assists in thirty one minutes a game, eight point, five p. e. r., fifty percent, true shooting on twenty one percent usage, and if Kobe white and coagulate believers are hoping that the normal arc of point guards. Guards holds true for some of these guys.

"Actually being able to play, because just having having a more capable small forward to finish plays into draw attention I think could be really big for white, and also just having a more consistent role I I'm interested in, and this is something that came up when we did the the Bulls collaborative piece at the athletic was with Seth and did four night was I'm not. Not sure if any of their young guards are really the guy to to be the steward of a high end offense, but I think i. kind of by Kobe White is being the most likely of them. I would rather I rather buy his stock than Zach Levine. If that is the specific task, moving can do other things that I. Think are interesting, and we're not gonNA talk about him in his breakdown, because he's far too old, obviously but I. I think that white has that potential, and that is a good thing for Chicago, because capable point, guard play can be really hard to find absolutely fewer notes to here He going back to his North Carolina's. He's still did this with the Bulls Make difference just with how fast he pushes the ball in transition is that something were liked to see him again? As the point guard of being the guy who gets the outlet, being the one that the biggest looking for so he can push it up as opposed to playing the to as much defensively, I used six five. He's got shorter arms so I'm not. I wouldn't really necessarily want him guarding twos, but I thought he puts in pretty good effort defensively for A. A rookie point guard, and again you know we've been spoiled by TRAE, young and John Mirant in terms of rookie point guards lately. Generally, those guys really really struggle. You GotTa do is go back to look at where deer and Fox was not the quite good prospect is Fox, but it's good like look at Deer Fox one of the worst players in the NBA as a rookie and look at the strides that he's taken, and I think a lot of the things that. That he's struggled with turnovers. Finishing at the rim are things that that can be improved and things that can't be taught as well such as a his shot, the versatility to his jump shot and the ability to create separation in that speed I think he does bring that in a as skills that you can build around and refine. Let's go to the player. The Bulls took at the same number. Seven pick the year before window cartridge in your age twenty season eleven. Eleven points nine point four rebounds in twenty nine minutes a game about fifteen point five fifty nine percent true shooting on sixteen usage. That's below the twenty you'd expect if it was even for position and going back to when you and I saw him at Adidas nations as a high school player. I wondered about if Carter was going to be able to take threes. He's still hasn't really done as a pro twenty nine attempts this year and thirty two percent last year. Year yeah, th the there's been talk out of Chicago that he should look to be more aggressive with sixteen percent usage is relatively low You know what e- back in high school I thought he could be derek favorite type. It's become clear that he doesn't have that same level of explosion or finishing ability around the casket, only one point zero four points per possession as the roll man that is very a, and that's actually on place where rules to the basket not. Not, including pick and pop switch again for his jump shot not very aggressive. They're only eleven possessions if he gets the ball, the primaries usually looking hand off to a guard, rather than make a play 'em, so another indication of his struggles around the basket, lack of experience, just not going to go up and try and dunk on someone, and he's not it. You'll get an alleyoop. That's right next to the basket, but he's not like a huge catch radius on those plays. Plays and unplaced labeled as cut spice energy, which generally for biggs is going to be plays where they just are passed the ball right around the basket, only one point one four points per possession again. The finishing is something that I hope will get better at, but it's clear that he is not his explosion and finishing below average for a center. There's hope that he could be this jack-of-all-trades offensively al. Horford was another comparison that he got early on and you know. Know I think he does have some decent feel he. They haven't used his post game at all. Even against switches only fifty one post upset 'em, poor numbers in that area so although worth noting that the bulls were really trying to de emphasize anything the mid range, so a lot of deposed ups that both he and Morgan had were late. Clock plays that we're kind of just throw it into him because he has the mismatch, but they've wasted a bunch of time. There, he has to Kinda shoot a bailout We're about defensively. Would you see from I? I still like cartridge in your his tools is effort level on that end. Eat something that concerns me a little bit. Is that well? His defensive rebound rate improved went from a base about twenty two percent of available runs up to twenty five percent, which is dice block rate. Rate dropped and I I think that he still has the tools to be a reliable rim-protector, and I would need to see more of him. In kind of a different style of system to get a full full grants, but I think the early viewer returns positive both Pi, pm. And RPM Siham as positive defensive player, one of the differences between the two is whether they. Whether they see him as a net, positive or net negative, but I think he's I, think he's a positive defensive player..

We are back with the boss talk. I do think this is definitely a year for growth for us. People I was asked Kanye West a realistic expectation for the balls as WanNa see them be better now. They don't even have aftermath of course I would love for them. Make the plows because I'm going to be there will be because we haven't made the playoffs and a few years but even if we don't make the playoffs but I see significant growth from our guys. I'm I'm one hundred percent happy with that Yep. I agree just looking better as a team. That's really just I think thirty eight is accurate. I think so. Have you had to bet if you have five thousand dollars. I'LL BET thirty eight. Does you gotta you gotTa have that loyalty. No you don't bet man is looking at the raw. There's not looking at the Ross. Sea Thirty eight wins the that's the rust. The ringer drought this article one of the go onto because I don't like y'all got someone in the fifty dollars on the land. Go wins. We're here. According to Y'all get twenty nine wins out lose the bit they can still go under and stillness. Take me the guy at the ring dropped this article right and I tweeted the Ardglass tweeted the headline at Article. It was something like the next new player to lead the League in scoring is that dot dot xactly right and I'll read the whole article is a good article but he's he's not saying like people misunderstood the article because they'd actually read it. They just saw the high the headline and that was partly my fault but he was saying like next year. Zach Levine average of thirty six to beat Lebron James Hardie saying that out of all the people who've never led the League in Scoring Zach Levine is the prime guy to potentially be able to do it just because of his opportunity is usage rate and how good of office a player. He is for example. It can't be staff. Africa staff is not a before can't be Katie. Katie's before can't be James Harder so he's basically looking at the next generation of scores and he was saying like Zach Levine he also put Devon Booker to knows that guys like one of these two guys could potentially eventually end up leading the League score which makes a lot of says because they're both great offensive players yeah. I'm just glad that ARC Arkalyk that is being published on time people only looked at him as a dunker which is south which is something he mentioned in the article because people people compare him to duckers and chuckers right right like Jr Smith because they they take a lot of sites like Zach Levine is kind of in the vein of out don't give a damn like Jr Smith but he's so much more. You know what I'm there and I'm happy to the point. Where exactly is like you know what I'm not going to do. The duck contests these next couple of years because I want people to realize that are more do it this. This is the year to do it because this is in your city city now but I'm glad he went to the more than and I like to see Aaron Gordon do that. He did that to evolve to the point where they're no longer just high fliers but their quality. NBA Okay players near like that and that's when they add high flying to their skill level Mason Iran before he was so fucking standard when he came in nobody Lebron and Lebron. He didn't have anything to gain from it if he lost. That's what people don't talk about if he want he's so they would never gonna give him the winning. He's never been a power dunker like nobody wins like that and that's like the White Howard the White House but he was being jumping so half the ad yeah we really think about it. Yeah People Ah Fan was harmful. People's only even now being exactly fantasy sports illustrated. He's ninetieth in Minnesota before yeah her he was this ball and Bro. He was the same amount of points as a third up as Karl Anthony towns and option but not the last shots found like crazy. I don't even remember that like it was killing. Ma Ma memory from the NBA of course remember stuff but I don't remember it like I can't picture him and Wolves Jersey anymore. I try to put him at point. Guard offers career because get hurt then he put them there. He struggled his his ass off. They had like a national televised game against the rockets and he was terrible and then the next year they came in. They brought route cagey. Was it like the practice talking down better year. He was better he still was rough as hail but they don't give them fulltime minute other shooting Gar boom home and then they was like he's crazy league this year because he's got a beautiful sophomore year now daddy see that he's a shooting guard has no more trying to put him yeah point guard and then he was killing them but got hurt. I never heard anybody calling him a young Hollywood no yes I have. I haven't heard it the first time I've ever seen Matt now now not but knowing when he was at Ucla that was named young Hollywood. I think slow. Mo Kyle Anderson gave him the name 'cause they used to be on Instagram instagram and he it would be in practices docking young Hollywood well Zach Levine and his fate rhymed like I hate eight though it's like chocolate food. I'm thinking like actual phone okay so to the boozman super excited. He was ranked number forty nine and his recruit class. You know his twitter. Yok Go back and look at them. Picks it up and less young. Zach Levine was a fool on on a grand like Mousse cake. Mudslides got different names like chocolate like this all right. It's not too bad and I'm better than we saw. Notice is okay better than what somebody in the family can bake. Nelson next team is the Detroit Pistons. They may some significant big. Moose we joy basking move exactly with the unlimited amount of money in the end the straight for Tony Snow. They signed derrick rose. They draft Seco- Diab Seco- what else did they do that. It signed Jo Johnson Sides Jostle recently there mark but yet they didn't have much money but they tried tried to get better on their rostrums his grade because they snuck into the playoffs mostly on Blake Griffin's back but now they have a more complete team even though they're wing position is still iffy but they have more complete team the last year which could be for some reason and I'm not. I'm not trying to go crazy here but I like this team. A lot and you know it's funny. I put in my ahead. I said I don't know what it is about the team but I got some confidence. I gotten better than shooting like Tony Snow. Even though he's not the greatest I think he he could play defense as well. You know it's crazy so k. My mockery player plays for them and I absolutely Louis Hanno. They can't sue they can't do. Tony Snapshot Forty percent from three last year the year before the before that so he can shoot the damn ball anyplace diesen season defense. I think there'll be a playoff team again. Blake Griffin's healthy all type season but I just ended did a good job. Basically what you say delimited money. They upgraded this Rasa. When you look at this rise to the top to bottom and you look at names now that they didn't have last year we look at a dare grows you look at the Marquee Moore's Tony Snail mark. You've gotta so me something though because we use it okay see barely played him. He didn't really do anything. Super Bowl Reggie Jackson had a solid year for the two year he really got the return of guys like Reggie Jackson. I WanNa see Andre Drummond v more better as far as it's gone because I felt like he can be alone then fourteen yeah. I just you know seventeen hundred seventy. Stop shooting threes but no he's. They say he's always telling everybody should be shooting threes. Everybody regardless it because eventually you're going to have to learn how to them in your career but I started the little the little pieces that they added like ten frayed has always been a so he keeps always a good job. I like Christian would he's a nice young player out of UNLV carry. Thomas should be better this year. Bruce Brown had good defensive yeah. He's on the better it is in the Louis. Louis King was a nice pick out of Oregon draft Jordan bone as another guy to play for the guy that had the highest vertical in the fastest speed to the from. I'm from the COMBI v Mikhail. Luke knew we see him at the airport. He can beat him in a later that day to the airport. When he jammed pick he was standing the right to own away to the the actual like gates and stuff. I couldn't believe he was. That's why I always say that 'cause I couldn't believe how be I'm safe for us like a giant Bro. They'll give you like hey six. I forget and I'll be watching them. They'd be playing at the It runs the younger. That's our king and they they maybe hoping on this park has recently and he said you always every time bring his name up into this part but he was talking about how like his his contract is up in the next couple of years right. He's got a player option in twenty twenty one. He was talking with this guy about his next decision right right because he said his goal he said you don't care about winning the championship. He said he's one pretty pretty much every level not on the championship because in college this a winning player and he was like you remember when he was ten years old. He wanted championship. He said he can't imagine what it feels like now. It's been so long long so he was saying he has to decide whether he wants to say in Detroit. It'd be loyal or go and try to get him a ring and a player like like Blake Griffin. Please Ring Ring Bro Yeah. Please go get your IRA those type of movies though this is what I won't do those those type of move people you talk about people liking him those type type of move their faker people dislike if you go especially depending on what team we go to like a stag team but I think that Blake Griffin's one of those players that the cards have been dealt against him for a lot of his career that like take for example the whole end in La to end up in Detroit thing every damn poor Blake Griffin not Detroit is a bad place but it's like he's. He was promised promise so much with the clippers they traded him like that the com- right exactly so join a team that was already good people who may. F- Blake Griffin like they they bond with each he don't he brought them back to the playoffs and at that point they still only nice job with that was no before he can then. There's been recently swept by the cavs who three years ago Reggie Jackson. Call the pope. That team made the playoffs moneywise next year. Drama is going to have a player option twenty million like I don't WanNa Accept Tony's and that was gonNA. He's told me exactly so but you have Reggie Jackson.

"That was the first time I really ever say dares Garland. Play the crucial. Oh Yeah he could definitely knocked down to the jumper and we do our award prediction video. He probably making my top three because he's going to have hell opportunity in Cleveland and nobody's really GonNa take the ball other than his sex them even then they're gonNA. They're gonNA have the power dynamic. WHO's the Alpha there and then they're going to figure it out. I feel like a barrel. Garland got craze that game off the bounce. Razi range better offensively than Collins says he hasn't really shown any jump jump for being a playmaker either gigs at him being off guard might not be such a bad idea never shown appointments. That's the thing is he small right here to be honest he didn't show play making a Billion College Jordan High School in damaged showed an MBA but yes a lot of town on here when when they they get rid of some guys like Kevin Love Trish however they Richardson silencing isn't looking at they salaries he hires pay play on his eighteen million dollars branding fifteen million dollars in parks and making thirteen Larry Nance making twelve dollars brandon. I'm making fifteen million dollars. That was the contract with the game. I think it was that year that everybody got paid and then obviously you're really play much sense but yeah he was just a dump off to. They just took their salary. I think they got a future picking. I think it was the second or something like that so they gotta they. WanNa last year on a deal with a lot of these guys if not all of these guys besides Kevin Love you know once they get past those contracts and if they can get some stuff back with Kevin love like theory mentioned that you can have some decent because you have Darius Garland Colin sex then then you have avid didn't win there who I like you have Kevin. They had a pretty good draft disguising I WANNA see the big man's easy from the Celtics. I I WANNA see some more of him. Jordan Clarkson is solid when he gets his opportunity to get his bucket. Sir Larry Nance to to me is I mean if Kevin love their eventually planning on traded ready to him or he depending on how much he played his Larry. Nassar was pretty good and only played around twenty five minutes after Katrina he I think he can l. Death team in a team that at least trying to compete is geared as a solid defender. He's been a little bit offensively with billy detect and it seems like he's expanding his game. He sat thirty three percents from three last year with these Kahad. I think he I think he had a decent year. playmaking two three assists probably more the concepts they locked. Him Upright Albright gave it a three year deal to something similar to that so he's in their future plans that only twenty six years old so he is still relatively young as far as NBA does was idiot every kind of air insane but yes excellent point guard can be a unanimous three point two so Larry Nance. I'm happy that he's found his place place. Even though it may not be there for long or whatever just following in his POPs footsteps as far as Cleveland Goes. I think this team like Bo Fiat. Mention has a pretty bright future there rebuild. We build seem to happen quit. They still at the bottom of the bottom but it seemed like they got there. They haven't direction way yeah. At least they got to see these guys played like only one really knows Katelyn and jetty but dairy garland will we would. I know from him just a few games. I've seen at Vanderbilt in they Iran so we stayed at every level saying reporter Julia and Denim Lindor. We still gotta see. These guys actually do some shit. This is like the thing that scares me again. We don't talk about arouses. The negatives favorite team is the fact that they do have this to guard thing and they're both six two new coexisting will be pretty pretty tough at only being six to because who who the hell are they. GonNa defend like other name of the best backwards and we should guard Russell Westbrook my six to Mike Conley Donovan Mitchell Guard though needed take a Lotta right names. E Caesar's like six four right. This is what they might be giving up. They probably getting back to their at least scores Dana Sonia I don't. I don't like it I'm not a fan of it. I don't see it manifest into something crazy easy and I think the pair I mean you have to leave one of them and I think they wanted it to me from what I know about. Both of them deers Garland is the when you keep that's my opinion if he of course is if he stays healthy you know but I mean Cleveland had a lot of stuff going on this year. Yeah I mean it's not eh problems have at this point because both super young so you play them for half a season you feel like they never gonNa work. Then boom wanted them out the door. Some pretty good value because concepts did have a good rookie season. Just didn't show playmaking or defensive really overdue good but you gotta be far enough to know that long term Wise uh-huh when you're planning to build a franchise you WanNa you want since they make sure they both have a good year solid years you gotta be able to look and say okay okay. This is the time to capitalize Colin Sex and having high value the trade him you know in in butte around the rest of these young court. I'm looking around. What's it seemed like a US a young guard. That's the tough part B. Knicks but they don't WanNa have radio now young point guard eastbound sixty million oh you do. We're GONNA talk about Phoenix event when he's episodes but they are team. That's trying to be good now. They don't want to restart because then book is already complaining about not making the playoffs so they move this off ABC's to try to be competitive and try to forget like hollow sex who still not completely ready for life. He's not ready to make the playoffs. We'll probably not be the right move for them. So so it would be for example if the Piss don't work out and they start to blow things up like every team right now like as mentioned before is going to be a competitive team for the Hornets who designed point Gar so like a team that we need a point guard. It's I don't see it unless the wizards like you know where working. It worker and then when John Wall comes back. We don't really want him a part out of our future. Let's go get a young guy. Even then it's like what is that a two percent chance is going to happen. That's the only thing we can't say right now because so many teams in a mix but if we see something Jurassic we happened in Toronto and they move away from Karelia that that slot opens up for them or a team could just be looking for a quality backup. PG that's it. That's a good thing I got competitive things. He can score the ball. That's shot welcome to be a little pricy to be ov off dementia after Gar depending on what happened where Oklahoma City they'll they'll need a point are eventually they get say anything on true but if they play him and Chris Paul would they plan Combo. I mean he could play that Combo Ako Combo but they got in there too. I would hope that they get to the point. Would they allow him to breathe the point Gar I would I would like to but I mean looking at it has come up in the NBA with clippers he was he was saying what had Shehade sometimes clippers he was the three things aren't him shamet and Beverly Yeah and then now with okay see depending on how long does politics he's going to be an essay type of situation so the I mean the Mavericks. I don't know what they have to spend or send in it depends on how good they are as well but they don't have legitimate solid starting right. Lucas Kinda like the boat. I'M GONNA play it out but I mean if they sign these went out and got rife associated Minnesota yeah but that's another situation similar to the sons where they they wanna be competitive to show that they're a good team and I don't know if they're they don't really even have assets like for example. The only thing they would have to trade is like Jeff teague but then the cavs are capped out. You don't WanNa give up any of your young players. Kover a a Koji for I don't know I don't know where collar sector we ended up if this hypothetical situation happier but now they got Mario folks in this. It's a lot of those positives. It is going for the candidate as a French. I just hope they have a better like a better year like you said they had a lot of problem. They started off rough. They fired tyronn Lue Kevin Love. I've got her Tristesse. Hotter had some awkward antics there is remember using the issue with Helen Sexton like his teams are coming out and saying we don't even know if you really want to play basketball modern walk into the going on yeah if he was good right and that was a month. It'd be a career in the in the second half of the season. He played very good great. Yeah I don't even they had to be some days going on locker. It wasn't space off his play. Are they gonna Jonah's and two they do. They do like like Cou. Cou Graduate Thousand Bucks any of saw like two or three years ago. He had the highest black and that's what I thought he was going to be. The Larry Sanders was leave and he's like I'll wear his didn't really work out so twenty one win. I think that's GONNA be lower. Somebody gotTA GOTTA lose a bunch and it might be the which I'm sure the fans will be terribly out and follow like I said on on a previous episode you fan of a team like the Hornets a team like this. You just gotTa find the silver lining in the beauty in Charlotte because they shaped up to have a petition Gibson players when you look at how bad they you look at the possibility of Trade Kevin Love just I would just look at all these assets and and just be happy to see how many books for them they have anybody coming. I'm GONNA I mean the guys that we named earlier. Yeah Yeah like brand nine the they should be on his right 'cause they're not probably. GonNa get no big freeze but if they can sign you know quality veterans right chance to have that the money off the books Tristan Thompson Brandon Ni- Jordan Clarkson John Henson Matthew Belva Dover and Jedi is and who they're. They're going to respect you yeah but those other guys very very question if they're resigned but that's the thing about a place like Cleveland Right now not a place I was going to sign a big raises so bill is really banking on them hitting near draft Graf Pigs Lebron comeback now. That's that's the only way to cavs. Give better is hitting the draft picks. Lebron WANNA come back at forty years old Lebron's in a retired cab ebb headey doing football like we give them a one day contract. If we're going to handle was he's done in. La these don't go back and finish this gritter. I I don't see a reason to he did it. He he got championship. He he'll come back to visit because some family our thank you like. Let's let's go another own them but I don't think he's going to go back. That'd that'd be dope ended up the owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers. They're paying one hundred and twenty nine million dollars for this roster issue to be the worst thing mentally they still jr Smith to you for the next four years three years million but that's not like for example y'all know like obviously before they get back to the League because we see him working out here and there but having just an extra million dollars coming every every year actually when you already got you know someone because he's he's had a long having yeah. That's what I will tell my son. Don't don't pick up no football and no guarantee contracts there. You better come to this basketball baseball. We plan make their guarantee money because even when it's he wants you know more they have. You have to say that way. While Dang it's still getting paid and I was like four years ago. Ross Awesome Kevin Love at a hundred and twenty million yeah. That was the fact that they are signed..

I'M GONNA go see this. Is this the only remember the novel go see they were all going from my highest. Louis right into snow last even remember he's number as I look in their three really I'll be thinking I got obviously have he can look. There's no indication with the right answer.

I can promise Shaw it is three four look to eighty nine seventy six or three thirty one B B for migrants as eighty nine. Derek went to seventy six to eighty nine to eighty nine.
