What Would the 12-Team College Football Playoff Landscape Look Like
"I rob we talked a few. I get it now. I think it was a few months ago at this point about the playoff expansion in college football and at that time it really seemed like the twelve team playoffs was was coming and they have momentum in you know everybody seem or most people seem like they were for at least the people on the committee and it seemed like that was going to be the next phase of college football and now it is being put on hold and very much in jeopardy and as much as i'm for and you know this. I'm for the playoff expansion for the twelve team playoff. But i understand why it's a whole and that's because oklahoma and texas are about to leave the big twelve suit and it. Looks like the sec. Are they creating some type of super conference. And then will you know the pac twelve and the big ten like some of these other big conferences. That are left out. I mean rob. There are people that think we could end up with two. Maybe three super conferences like a almost like a. You know the first division is. maybe. I don't know forty fifty teams because let's face it that's really what it is anyway. Well but forty fifty teams at the top level. Almost like the nfl. So i think with autism. Flux i don't think you can is the to twelve at this point you gotta see the conference play out. I in my opinion. I also think there's distrust amongst these guys like trying to get out because of what's happened chris. Like people sneaking out of their conference in the middle of the night right leaving the other the other ones in the learning tracks in in in effect you know like like like some of them of affected. The tv contracts right out of schools pulled out and then that gives a clause to espn. Or fox's say wait a minute no no no. We didn't sign up for this without these teams. So you know what i mean like. We got a problem and we're good avoid. I mean it is just. It's been insane this past off season. I would college football and where it's headed chris. And you're right. I mean it's going to be the haves and the have not it's a flat out money. Grab by college

What's on the Line for Chris Paul's Legacy?
"You know this. This series started out very well for the sun's up to all look like they were going to go from bubble darlings to title team in a year. I don't have to refresh your memory. it's you remember that probably yonathan. The vox i've turned upside down and for c. p. three it might mean coming up short one more time in the playoffs. Not grade list to be on here c. p. threes teams have had multi game series leads four times in the post season. Only to watch those leads. Slip away. Chris broussard what is on the line night in game. Six for chris paul. There's a lot on the line and obviously the championship but for him personally of is individual legacy yes. There is a lot on the line he would become. If they lose this series he would become the only player to lose four series in the postseason. Where you lead to. Oh okay anna. Point guard is in control of the game of his team. So a lot of that just falls on the coach. It can fall on the point guard. So we've talked about some christmas failures in the past and the postseason if he loses this series those become their a big part of his story. And when you talk about why he's one of the greatest players with barkley malone and you eat in stockton to never win a championship you look at. It and chris is a big part of why he didn't win the championship. Conversely if he can come back and win this series. Those playoff foibles. Become a footnote okay. They go from being a year. He's great but to just be enough small footnote in his overall story. So that is the first thing. Secondly if he wins this series he could become the third player. Only the third player in the seventy four year. History the third small player or normal size point guard to lead a team to an nba title.

"Win. Chris paul debit book or do for games with shoot better than forty percent from the field. 'cause they haven't shot the ball particularly well chris. Paul nineteen sixty and they've lost two or three games escape. Look we bought us that. My research joining ashes on it. Would you book cover in fourteen playoff game. Did you know fifteen points with his career. High you leave you. Go replicate delegating. He'll get another career. I don't believe that you don't believe that I feel good about back. I feel good about chris. I put three cases but the elephant in the room. The other not a better team without chris paul but they're fifteen points higher office rating with him off the court the court and you mentioned when he was out you look at it and push the pace Look at here. When he's on the court they slowed down and he's allowed the clippers to sit there. Deepens pushed up on. Get the ball in transition. Let d e The issue supreme. Game you what ball pray. Give me tomorrow. Becky phoebe down here on this block. He's starting to be a pain in your. You know why. Why did cameron johnson needs to. Because he could play defense just as bad if jae crowder and mikhail bridges. But he going to give you more pensive. I would agree with cameron johnson. You get by twenty twenty five minutes watching so shannon sharpe and chris broussard an even bigger elephant in the room. That i don't know silly me. I'm noticing that you two aren't. Would i think even without kawhi leonard and without zoo bots and without even sergio bacha. I just think the clippers are still a little better than the sons and they keep proving it game after game after game scoring differential so far through the five games. The clippers are plus seventeen through the five games over the phoenix suns. So when they win they win. Much more convincingly than the sons do and when they lose the clippers they don't lose by much haven't been blown out one time in this hole playoff run and they are now up to a record. Seven games that they have won when trailing in playoff series. No one's ever done that before so to me i. It's not about pressure because the truth is the pressure is still on the phoenix suns. The truth is the greatest pressure is not on paul george. It's on chris paul the third because he's never been to a finals in his career and we're getting toward the end of his career blown couple of three one leads already so nail the specter of another blown three one lead is got to start eating at him and he is now over his last two games over nine from three two for sixteen in the three games. He has played in this series from three. So i'm looking like the clippers have to be feel a little better about themselves and their plight because they love this plight. This is all they've ever done. Nobody would ever come back from. Oh two down in consecutive ploughs. Here is there he did that. So what's three one down to them. They are at their best when they're at their worst and they are obviously up against it now. Game five game. Six and game seven. But i don't think they feel any pressure. The pressure was on the clippers. Only once in this series and it was game four at home. Because if you want to do it conventionally you need to even the series at to all once. They didn't do that. It's like well here. We go again and lucid. Yeah it's very doable. And i think they bought it because they know they are a little better than the phoenix suns for serve need to do. They need to get them to the fourth quarter and let it be a back and forth ballgame. You look at the to ball games that they won. The game weren't close in the fourth quarter. Yeah chris paul game the third but then they they took. It didn't look back. Get them get them to the board quarrel. They got it to ninety eight ninety four last night. I wanted to be a bucket bucket. I make what i go ahead. You make a bucket you go here. I wanted to go tit for tat okay. But it looked like it was gonna be tit for tat in the third quarter when they suddenly jumped up. Sixty two to sixty one. You want to talk about our short live lead. That that one point lead lasted seconds. And then that was it for the rest of the night. You feel. You've talking points in the paint. Last night critic crossed fifty eight thirty two the time off theories what happened. Where was the dominators. They call deondraye. You know where. I don't know if he was guarded by marcus morris in but we call it about fit called him out calling him out. I don't know where he was dead. I didn't know where he was. A couple of times gives the lakers. Okay what happened what. She issued a subpoena the chris paul beatty okay. You want chris ball game. You want him to be replaced to push the ball. That was what i needed to. I needed to push the ball. Shannon sharpe is campaigning for painting for campaign to replace correspondent. Starting lineup this bit cam johnson. Starting land yeah go ahead. Chris is an interesting thing. I mean you hit on the head. Skip the pressure is on chris. Paul i mean he's gotten a ton of praise. Well deserved this year. Somebody was the mvp because he wanted what he did with phoenix but they go ahead and win the first two games without without. Now's you said they've lost. What two three three two. A lost two of three with him. Here's a stat for you shannon. And you didn't you mentioned. Think aiden devon booker with chris paul on the court in this series. He's averaging eighteen points per thirty six minutes on thirty three percent shooting. Twenty nine percent from three without chris fall twenty seven points per thirty six minutes forty three percent shooting thirty six percent shooting from three so chris. Chris is not gonna push it christmas a slow player he he might be being deliberate and controlling everything a little too much. Yes for these young guys. I mean. I think he's gotta get out you right. You gotta play faster. But i don't know if that's in him will it like i've talked about how him getting to finals or winning. The championship would be a huge boost whereas legacy if they somehow lose this series band is really going to be a knock against him and he got several because he has skipped he. Has those three one. We remember in la and they lost loved the home-court by nineteen. They did so he. he's have to come through. he threw they got them young. They got them. Young lady's bridge in crowd is not that young but brands booker in aden and campaign and cam jonathan creek. They meet to run. Let them run. You saw what they did with chris paul campaign with push it push it. You re allies. Now he was unguardable paul. George couldn't guard him. We got some. We will push it push it. I got the clippers in game. Six just as. I had the clippers in game five..

"One and we'll be all star game presented by mastercard july thirteenth on fox. The clippers have begun yet. Another comeback attempt this postseason. Paul george led the way last night for la with a game. High forty one points to grab the one. Sixteen to one or two win in phoenix. Marcus morris and reggie jackson combined for forty five points as the clippers were able to lead for majority of the game enforce force game six tomorrow night in l. a. fox sports analyst. Christopher sard is joining us now chris. What's the biggest reason the clippers one. This one i think. The biggest reason was playoff p. Paul george and obviously had a historic performance. He led the clippers in everything. Forty one points rebounds. The ad thirteen assist the ad six even steals the ad three. It was a fantastic performance. He was the first player in the seventy four year history of the nba. To put up those numbers shoot seventy five percent from the floor so he put on a huge performance. And what i like most about it. Was that going into the game with everybody. Criticizing him including me for missing the free throws at the end. The game four even going back to game two and everyone saying he had to have a big performance. He just went out there and let the game come to him. Jeff van gundy. Mark jackson were on the broadcast saying that he had to be more aggressive. Eve needed to do more and yet he still continued to just play this game and what that did was one in leads and being efficient because the only two good shots for the most part but to ed gave his teammates the room to do their thing. So marcus morris can go out and score twenty points in the first half. If paul george's fourth in the action and trying to be the star in carried him by himself marcus. Morris doesn't do that boogie cousins ten points in the first half and then in the fourth quarter. Of course reggie jackson scores eight points in a two minute stretch. Kind of put the game away. And paul george was just the steady guy throughout from the second quarter on eight points in the second twenty points in the third ten points in the fourth so he had a tremendous performance. Nice bounce back. And i said yesterday that foul shooting was a big part of this series because the teams are so evenly matched the clippers. Go out and make fourteen of fifteen. Free throws land by paul george with by hitting all eight of his free throws so pandemic clean. Look i gave him the lion's share of the blame in game four. Now got a call in playoff. Give him the lion's share of the credit in game. Five or chris paul de able to relax because mark morris than other guys got up to that great start so as you mentioned that was telling skipping the segment is that he didn't have to force anything normally he's trying to get up ten twelve shots in the first quarter and they're not necessarily all good shots every shot that he really took yesterday with a premium quality shot. And because marcus morris started sixty six. Reggie jackson got off to a great start. You mentioned boogie comes into boogie. Give you give you valuable fifteen points and eleven minutes. I thought that allow. Pg to play within themselves. He doesn't have to force the issue because he like. You know what a is going to be a great day for me and you're right. He was fit. You know misfired shots imported minutes of play. He was spectacular. He was there. There's give flowers you mentioned. And i didn't think he could. Because when todd loosely at. It's doable coming back and winning the series. I've like yeah. If you got lebron is to give you forty one guy read. they'll give you forty one. I didn't see paul george. Giving them forty one. I did not see. Reggie jackson a marcus morris senior. Give you forty five between the two so when i look at it from that perspective. You right playoff. Paul played really well. But i'm not those saying he deserved all the credit. Because i pay marcus morris. Getting up to the start that he got up to skip. I think that played a big role in land allowing paul joyce to relax play within themselves and get quality shots okay. Did we lose chris or something happened. Oh okay so it's just doing okay. Okay it it shakes me that that you have swung wildly from pandemic pete back to playoff off in that. You're giving paul george and a plus plus for last and it. It shakes me. That chris broussard just said it was an all time. Great performance and that. It was all about paul george. It was not all about paul. George last night and i should know because i have sweated and lived and died with this team the way nobody has in. It has become for me by far the most frustrating team that that i have ever tried to root for a period of it. Torments me it haunts me. It's excruciating to watch much of the night because it's baffling how wildly the roller coaster rolls the highs and the pathetic lows. This team will give you even on a night when they prevailed by a pretty sizable market. So i thought that paul george gesture predicted he'd go thirteen and ten a triple double. Which if i told you those numbers they they pale in comparison to what in the but but when i said that i'm sure you were just off at the no thirty thirteen and brand and yet even i that my prediction went right out the window in the first quarter because he looked like he had hit the wall. Both mentally and physically. Because i'm gonna say it again. He has played. Paul george one hundred and thirty more minutes than anybody else. In the playoffs. He is played one hundred and fifty more minutes than anybody else on his team. Reggie jackson his second one hundred and fifty minutes behind playoff. P you mentioned gabriel. The at three point the only took three shots in the first quarter and he wound up with six turnovers for the game. He had to in the first quarter and shoot ahead three. There was another. Just this lackadaisical pass that he got knocked up to recapture the ball. So i am trying to watch him play thinking he is dead headed. He's playing almost like in slow motion because an even van gundy is saying paul. You have to realize it's like you're trying to pass like there's no defense out there so can we again see the two turnovers that he did commit in the first quarter because there are a variety of what are you thinking. It's like he just tries to throw a pass that that is clearly not judge the throw it through the whole defense. Well that that that went through three sons. That's not going to get home and then this one it's just late and it's easily stolen looking at. He's looking watch like thank you. It's almost like a balanced past de'andre and and it was so bad that i'm thinking who cares if they jumped off to a twenty two five start because if felt like pandemic p. had returned and was allowing them back into the game who saved the day in the first quarter. Marcus morris. i've told you again and again. It feels like this team goes as he goes and he went he.

"You. Will maestro okay. Mr ramsey has in jalen ramsey small bones to pick with you. Lebron cakewalk through the east back in the days of what this band called the baby dinosaurs member. Ou'd remember when george paul was the solo star of indiana and he kept running up against lebron and d. Wade and chris bosh remember those days. Yeah i remember those days never win. Lebron was up because he at the shot heard around the world on the orlando magic in two thousand nine. Remember that game and what happened after that. I can't remember but they were gone. La- gone and six games and then how about his final game. Is i go round in boston. And actually his final three games. It was twenty ten. His owner jalen ramsey accused him of quitting in games. Four five and six against the celtics in twenty ten. Look it up. So i don't know he used to just run through what clay being you need on. What would you say by katie. What would he say about. Katie put troops or a meeting at the. What happened that three one. What do you think he would say. Three liter you go during the team that came back. A kevin was right. Never win a championship with russell westbrook as his primary decision. Nobody else's fault and then kevin win because they begged him to come and save them in golden state they fade to a really all he did was take over games three back to back years in one finals. Mvp in both those years to prove in once and for all best player on the plane an opportunity to do it right there. What about the this year in game. Seven that i washed my own two eyes on saturday night. It was absolutely clear as day at nighttime that he's the best player on the planet ain't even close anymore. I'm sorry what happened to lebron the game. Four milwaukee is really good one of the top three defense teas and basketball in who is kevin durant nemesis. It's the guy who went to his school. Pj tucker and went to the university of texas ahead of kevin durant. He plays his tail off against kevin. I thought he thought his guts out on saturday night and all kevin did was in the first forty eight minutes. Go for forty eight points against. Pj tucker and all he did was go as chris. Aptly pointed out. And i tried to explain to this man to open this show. He went one on five the whole night. James harden was a pathetic shell of himself a cardboard cutout just like cb three turns into in the state farm commercials. One that you could blow on. He would fall over. I started calling him a logo. Jane's because all he could do not shoot from the logo all he did was dribble on the logo dribble dribble dribble. And then hold the ball and look for kevin so we could loop some dangerous pass him. So that kevin could look up at the shot clock and say my god. I got five seconds left. I got to create on pj. Tucker i'll go left. I'll go right. I'll go. I'll spin. I'll fall away and i'll make another basket. He was extraordinary and he guarded yawn us at the other end and yeah he hit the wall. He finally playing every minute. The last three games. He finally just hit the wall in overtime and had no lift left and he finally shot an air ball drew holiday to end the game because he had no legs left. You show with skip bela's and somebody's mentioned petit lebron james and you said you can't use that great players michael jordan. Kobe bryant never got tired. You can use petit. How many times have we heard him. Say will lebron fifty one eight nine that game. What a minute people say. That was the greatest game. I've ever seen play as they tired. Chris will remember this. All i heard on. Espn and twenty fifteen at the files. I was their game for. Lebron played the greatest three games of his stretch stretch of his career. I always give you this those three games when he obviously lost kevin love going into game one and lost korean overtime game. Want at oracle. Lebron was just. He was on some other planet player on some other planet for three games. Then all sudden. He's got game four and his house. They're up two games to one. And i'm thinking this is going to be the greatest achievement of lebron's and what happened. Nothing happened all. I heard the next day was he wore out. He wore down. He got tired really. The man who play pays. What like two million dollars a year for his fitness down. That's what that's all i heard. He went seven of twenty two. He would not. I'm sorry five of ten from the free throw line in that game. And they got blown off the floor. Because steve kerr inserted into the starting lineup to defend lebron and iga dala winds. Mvp of the finals. I i don't know maybe kevin can get a little. Bit of a outta gas pancreas cruise. What was game seven. We talked about a game four in the bras building. And he lo what was game seven the reason. Now i wanna ask you this. Chris do you say quarter. If i'm not mistaken you say you covered the nba quarter-century. Which team do you think was better the twenty fifteen golden state warriors or twenty. Twenty milwaukee bucks. We'll t would you say was better warriors and think k. d. have more help for as much as hard with a shell of himself he did almost what twenty two nine thousand nine and blake griffin play. Pretty well he had more healthy. Lebron had twenty fifteen without kyri. Kevin love ask you betcha. His house is next. Guy was matthew della vedova. Who's pretty great. Don't do don't do as little blonde in games. Three did he did. He not make big shot was so. Did you agree to say kevin day five. We'll have that game seven. Jeff green wait. He played he actually like thirteen minutes. He didn't even take a shot in game seven. What's that about hollywood. He do landry shamet. Did he take a shot in game seven. He didn't take a shot. Joe green hair twenty seven kevin half none zero a historic performance. You didn't mention jeb greed. You talking about boom. I shot right between is to prove to you by the twenty seven thousand nine hundred forty nine seventeen and ten. Okay not a virtuoso through steals. And what have we asked. Lebron james in the playoff for his entire career. What you ask kevin durant or three games this a candy biz. What we need you to give for three games. We for the entire playoffs for a theory for the entirety of the play offs. Remember skipped his last year in cleveland. Thirty four eight eight not boy series for the entire playoffs. That's what he averaged. And you hear crowing. You feel like a root own sunday morning waking everybody target thought into you need to sit down. Come on. Tell me that he made one of great clutch shots in the history of basketball as christus detailed for you it was a thing of beauty is tollways about a half an inch on the line. Or you're cooked you're done. I thought it was over all right. I've got no five number of the lottery today. On f s one copa america continues with a jam packed doubleheader or takes on.

"End for for for ben simmons. We're going to have to figure that one out scored forty points in a duel. Kevin durant in game seven thriller saturday between the bucks and nets katie finished with forty eight points and sent the game to overtime after hitting a big shot at the end of regulation but showed up big in overtime while as luck ran out in the extra period as he would go on to airball on his game tying attempts securing the win for milwaukee and of course twitter was loving this game including rams at quarterback jalen ramsey who took a mail shot at katie. Posted quote. i ain't trying to start nothing up tonight. Lebron used to run through that east with no garoppolo. Were you talking. To s. he was tweeting. Their christopher told coal dust taran deserve for the laws. I have to start here. Jin if that was lebron james who over six in overtime and guy posted up by yang with a minute. Fifteen left in overtime great. Great play by janas. I i wanna see more of that then. I is playing a phenomenal game. I think a good friend of mine on his show. I'll let you guys forgot which one would be seen. Lebron all of that forty eight points. That twenty two funner. That could have won the game. If it wasn't for big toll on the lie all that would've been out the window. He would getting killed. And i won't be here. Defending lebron and i'm going to defend k. d. i think he deserves absolutely no blame. Katie d. the only reason they had a shot was kevin durant. He was awesome and that shot that we all four moment thought won the game. I know there's bigger shots obviously more meaningful size. They didn't even win. But just the skill this spin moved the. It was one of the most beautiful. I've seen a years. It was an awesome shot. I gotta give k. D. major league crabbing. That is just incredible way. He did our i got. There's blame to go elsewhere. If i have to put some blame on on some nets and i wanna give can steve nash. Playing seven guys. You know guys who really helped him in this run mike james. Tlc landry shamet played seven. Minutes didn't get any burn. I blame him a little bit for that. But and i'm going to give him a little bit of a pass because of the hamstring and it was a stray now. He said after the game was a strength grade to strain so is worse than we thought. So i'm gonna give hard a little bit of a pass for twelve from three. If he just hits one more one or two more threes. then they win the game. It doesn't even get to overtime. And i again. I understand the hamstring. But when i look at history i gotta factor that in a little bit in his last eight elimination games. His record is one in seven. He is shot. Eighteen for seventy six from three. This is one of the best shooters of the generation. A he is twenty four percent from three in those eight elimination games yesterday. He was two of thirteen on open or wide open. Shots s four feet or more between you and the defender twofer for thirteen and then he could join joe harris. He was three for eight on the same type of shots so there are two of their best shooters. Just go cold. And i'll throw this in at the end of the game. Kevin durant was going one on one versus five or one vs three and james harden was. He didn't even have forget. I get it your heart. You can't be as though he didn't have the swag he didn't have the toys he didn't have the the general floor. Generalship of a star let alone a superstar. He was just. Let's give half court. I'm heading into k. D. or waiver katie to make some great movie give free and gonna go stand and watch i get it. You're not yourself but just give me the give me the leadership of the star that you are that did in the first three quarters and that was absent and because drew holiday and chris middleton who were horrific in the first half and holiday through like the first three and a half quarters bay stepped up a gave john some help the end. And that's why they prevailed. Nobody was elba katie. This wasn't even luca or lebron. Bring it up one on one. This was in half court handed it to k. d. and we got to watch and you just make magic. That's what it was. I can't put this on k. D. one iota burt. Lopez did have nineteen seven. Eleven three and while she said it was no hair. This is what i knew in trouble skill. You look at the half. Oh dan holiday and militant was four twenty two and you only got a six point lead and you talk about holiday. Didn't play well holiday shop. Thirty six percent for the series holiday. Didn't play well at all and if you look at middle number middleton average thirty one points a game at home. He averaged about nineteen on the road so this game was prime said now. The only thing got this chris. I wanna to assess the same level of blame the same level criticism. That's what it says a superstar in this situation. Wait are you talking about lagaan. Donald strike out will ask the of because you today today it would do it today. All i'm saying is is. They're lebron. James was never allowed to get tied right chris. Kobe and mike never got fatigued. You see what happens when they're as kevin durant to do what. They've asked lebron james to do for the entirety of his career in the playoffs. Chris which is gore rebounding bloating. He'll start gain on tuesday. he did i. Try to deny it. Virtuoso mccrea's what. We needed it again. That chris would. You didn't mention the best player on the planet had a to only lebron jeans. The best puerta got a two old lead. What if say what autumn abroad hater saying. What about a two one lead. Twenty fifteen with game four and your house. What about oh homo. He have to only limits you there. I don't want man game coming back to without you. Remember bazaar. Three one lee blewett to lee fluid. This is not a super team. I know you're trying to make that point that the brooklyn nets or brook milwaukee bucks not not is a superstar personify times to mvp defensive player of the year. But that's not a super team. Jay ram is right. Because what you do jay ram lou the right because what you do when you try to minimize lebron you say the east is weak when you wanna maximize kevin durant you say the ethier powerful all the lot of injury. He wouldn't have had it any better. He had an opportunity to the nba finals and all they had to get through the atlanta hawks. He not going to be away. might you wear. Maybe he's with lagaan vacation. We hold on that boat for another ten days because somebody is gonna join us to.

"Me on the run. I'd be stupid to do this. But i will tell you. Pressure has swung wildly back onto the home team tonight. I'm not sure. I would want to be in their shoes. Because they're going to wake up this morning thinking. Oh my god. We're just one game away from the conference finals. We're not ready for this. who knows. Maybe little mice trait what what if he turns into pandemic trade night. What if those cold is who reaches goes from three. He hit up. He's highly capable of two for fourteen from three. He starts jacking up at a high rate. He's a poor three point shooter. And he's he cut way down from ten attempts to years ago. Only six this year but then all sudden he had that three for eleven two games ago because at home he feels like he's got a play to the hype. And i believe he might just jack up fifteen tonight and make three of them and quavo in two chains are going to be sitting right there. Maybe the hall of famer shannon sharpe will be in the in. The pressure will mount into the fourth quarter. And maybe joel will show up once in the fourth quarter because he just keeps hitting the physical wall is he's just not in very good shape and you're right. He's got to pace himself in the first quarter and the second quarter and try to be there for his team when they need him. Because i don't think. Ben simmons will be and i agree with chris. Docs on hot seat tonight. And i love doc. And i wish i could've played for doc because i think he's. He's as charming and personable and fun to be around as anybody. I've ever been around in many many years of covering the nba but the truth is alarming trend blown leads throughout his playoff career coaching career and they blew three in a row last year. Up three to one on denver in the bubble with leeds of sixteen nineteen and twelve and now they've blown an eighteen point lead and a twenty six point lead back to back. It can't happen again. You have the better team you have to play bigger and better and one. Quick point about tobias harris the one game they dominated at atlanta was game three and it was one twenty seven and one eleven sixers to bias in that game earned his thirty three million a year. Twenty two eight and five. And i'm with chris. I expect those numbers from tobias tonight. But you megyn you say the The mind chris was talking about you know mentally not getting their own head. We saw what happened with the clippers last year. They blew one lead. All we get back we can make those corrections. Then they blew another lead and then all we can get that back. We can greg. There's a game seven. we've still got the game building. And they blew another way. So what do you think the sixers say it just like the mind you know what our superstar i supposed to do this because the mind is the greatest thing that an athlete can possess is not as size. It's not a strength. Is his mind. So into sixes mine. Don't you tell me for one. Second still bayless. That they don't know they blew it. Eighteen point lead and god try dow. They blew a twenty six point. Lead at home got tracked down and now owned road. And i struggled close out. Okay you will learn tonight but but wait a second. It's up to dock to provide them with a strategic change tonight at least to tweak. That will re-instill confidence in them..

"I think he's in the twenties but it's not really efficient and it's a pedestrian game and he he doesn't deliver as so. Yeah i think donovan. Mitchell comes back with the big game that twenty one points in game five his lowest though the playoffs this year. I think you guys may have mentioned it yesterday. He got out of rhythm you know when everybody else was hitting threes. He never really got going and he didn't go to. The whole did was shoot. Three's fourteen of his nineteen shots. Which tells me to ankle was bothering. I think it'll be better tonight. He goes for big game. Thirty plus and utah wins. Agree with you chris. I'm taking utah. Because i believe they'll play with a greater sense of urgency than what they had in game. Five and you're right because they were raining. Three bogdanovich was raining three than everybody was raining. Three clarkston ingles is that it got out of it out of his rhythm and see what happens it once you get a guy out of his rhythm and then you can no longer make those shots how do you how do you get back is the opposite of what k. d. they katie guinea. Real them of the bugs did and now. I don't care who you throw at it. I don't care how many guys you throw it. You can't stop it. And so that's what happened with utah. He got out of rhythm and even though they everything settled back down he couldn't get back in rhythm so he'll be aggressive. The first four games look at how gris if he was putting the ball. And four yeah. He had to three ball going but he was finishing at the rim a lot also getting fouled getting to the free throw line. I believe he gives back to that. He needs to be in the thirties. And by donald bitch or ingles also need to be in the twenties because he has to have someone to come along with it. I don't know if my colleagues gonna play this as questionable. We'll see he might miss the entire series. He might come back and play a game seven if necessary. But they're going to have to play better. They can't go make ten three in the first quarter. Seventeen in the first half over the third quarter. It ain't go three or fourteen in the fourth quarter and expect to win a ballgame. I believe they shoot the three better. I believe out of mitchell plays better. And i believe marcus morris all of a sudden realize that he's not larry bird and all of a sudden reggie jackson route realize that he's not the microwave and being johnson who would automatically give you all those points all those thrust into the starting lineup. So i'm going to take the jazz in a really really really close game and i agree with you. Also chris paul george comes back to earth so what he might not be landau earth but he won't be as high in the stratosphere he works for gay for game five my turn so chris. Bazaar just used the phrase bank on. I will borrow that phrase to say tonight. i am banking on playoff. I believe in playoff t. I have told shannon from day one of this year when he shot the lakers right off the floor at staples. He came right up out of the basement. Shot him right between the eyes in the third quarter of that game and opening night at staples seen a young man grow up and toughen up mentally through this year when he was ridiculed by billions of people on the internet and a lot of players on the floor of nba games starting with devon booker..

"Critic middleton bring it home smelling nicey this thing without kawhi. The clippers took a three two series lead over the jazz on wednesday behind. Paul george is thirty seven points and have a chance to close out the series tonight at home quite remains out for game six with a sprained right knee and for the jazz. Mitchell and mike conley are both questionable. The clippers are just one game away from reaching the franchise's first conference finals where the sun's await the winner of this series. They are waiting very patiently right now. Christopher starts so with us. So chris who you got. Who wins tonight. Will you mentioned mitchell being questionable. I think you'll clearly played. The question is how well does he play. I'm gonna bank on him playing well. I'm gonna bank on that ankle being a little bit better than it was in game five and i think he will lead them to victory. I predicted a seven game series when it started clippers and seven obviously without kawhi. Uganda throw priests three series predictions out the window. But i still think this go seven a utah wins tonight. I think a whole host of clippers come back to earth tonight there at home and starting with paul george now. I threw flowers. Paul george all day yesterday and deservedly so he was phenomenal. He was playoff p. r. He was great. But i've noticed a trend. We all said guys on this show. He looked like the paul. George back in indiana who was battling lebron in the big three of miami in the playoffs as a youngster. And you think wow he's overmatched and he's given the big three all they want and then last night he was great. What's the common denominator where he was in. Indiana facing lebron d. Weighed in bosch. No-one expect better right. He was playing with house money. You know playing well even if you lose and last in game five it was the same thing without kawhi. No one really thought they were gonna go in there and win as he was playing with house money. There's no expectations. If you lose. Everybody expected it but tonight there are expectations. Everyone is thinking. He's going to bring it home and do so thin that chris paul couldn't do the hat. Kawai linear has yet to do that. Doc rivers in blake griffin. Couldn't do and that is get the clippers to the western conference finals for the first time in their history man. I don't know if off wants this type of pressure and these type of expectations because typically when that's been the case in his career that's when he has it been at his best. I'm not saying he completely false lab on his face. I'm just saying. I don't think he goes for thirty. Plus i don't think he has world classic games that's necessary for him to lead them to victory..

"Retired. He played thirty five. Regular season. games is the second row if the nets are spin in the second round of the playoffs. Then shame on them. They don't deserve to go any further. You played forty. I looking at the other side chris. Little display forty plus minutes the last four games. That's more than forty plus games. And he's had like the last two or three series before it is one. Jaanus has played three games of forty plus minutes in this series. That's more than the last two or three years. We know who knows or has always cut their minute short even in the playoffs so i think they should be just as spit. Ask the nets. Thank chris this is what i'm looking at. Kevin durant and game in game five. He has seventeen nineteen free throw attempts last ninety two. He was over that. That's what that's the tail tail. Because what was he doing. He got when they got behind. He says i'm just not going to settle. I'm gonna put it on the floor. And i'm gonna go to the real even though those forty minutes forty eight minutes where. He's handed the ball because a lot of the defensive assignment he took talk just standing in one corner of the other corner. That's all he's doing but he expended a lot of energy to get back into the ball game and they're even more to get them over the hump he looked like is the i get it but even the game that he played. Nash was playing heavy minutes remember. They were going overtime. Double overtime and katie was playing forty eight. Play at forty two minutes or three minutes. You're asking an awful lot. He's going to need them hail. Because i don't care if he goes for forty if jeb green doesn't come along with the historic performance we're not talking about that performance. Because they lose the game. Jam gave him seventy eight from three blake gable nineteen. That was the difference the timely three last night. Katie was fifty gave you thirty level. Chris anybody gives you started to at eleven. I take that all date. Somebody give me thirty to eleven on a regular basis. Ooh man i'm good. I'm good but not good enough. Considering james heart is hampered in carries not their room so shannon. Here's why you are going to be in trouble. This is what goes on with chris. Broussard you're going to need. Chris middleton to be what he was last night. And i don't know why but he plays pathetically away from home into echo. What chris said earlier in the three home games at milwaukee. He's thirty one ten and five in the three at brooklyn. He's eighteen and seven and three in any shooting twenty six percent from three. He's six twenty three so it's night and day for him and people say oh. He's the most underrated all star in the league. And why does get more shine. Well that's why doesn't get more shine. He's gonna have to come up huge in this game because it's going to take two of them to withstand the onslaught at brooklyn. So i'm going to hang in there even with no james harden and say that without khris middleton us and we know jaanus can disappear on right on schedule and a game like this. I'm going to cosign with chris. And say i'm clinging to the nets. I disagree with both of you guys. There's going to be one of these alaska. One of these alaska sambas.

"Let go while. The box. Beat the nets last night to force a game seven after chris middleton and janas combined for sixty eight points and milwaukee starting lineup scored one hundred of one hundred and four points. Kevin durant coming off as epic performance. Gained five led the nets with thirty two points and eleven rebounds game seven. We'll be saturday in brooklyn fox sports. Nba analysts. christopher joins us. Now chris. what a game last night and who doesn't love a game seven so we got who wins it jin. I feel very confident that the brooklyn nets will win this game. I am not the least bit deterred by what happened last night. I thought the brooklyn nets lost because they didn't play with any sense of urgency credit to the bucks they win inside finally and they play fairly well but brooklyn play horribly horrible basketball and i think they just they played like a team that knew. They had game seven at home in their back pocket. I'm not saying they went out purposely and did that but in their sub-conscious they just didn't have that do-or-die mentality that they're going to have to have in game seven so i think brooklyn wins it. Obviously they've got the best player in the series. The best player on the court. Next kevin durant. I think he will go for forty plus. I'm not saying he does what he did. In game five but he will have a huge game and go for forty plus points and james harden who i think when he came back and gave five was i think it was about fifteen percent of what he really years fifteen to twenty percent. I think last night he was about forty five percent of who is and then i think in game seven he'll be able to be sixty to sixty five percent of who we is. He clearly can't let it go. You know there were opportunities where the fast break and he just slows it down. He clearly doesn't want to just go all out on that hamstring but is smart player. He's a very skilled player. So i think you'll be able to play on strong game his best game yet since he's come back. Twenty plus points eight nine assists something like that and i think one or two of the role players whether it's blake griffin landry. Shamet jeff green. Maybe joe hairs who's fallen off the face of the earth. These last four games but somebody will step up to support the two stars and the nets will get the win or another end. Yon is going to do what he does. He's going to give you thirty plus points he's gonna give you fifteen or more rebounds and he's gonna miss free throws in jump. Shots.
Steph and LeBron's Impressive Finals Streak Ends With Lakers Loss

Lebron will not be in the finals. nba finals. I mean think about that. So this is a changing of the guard. Something new but nobody should be surprised. I know chris was on his high horse and when they won game three dominant in control. Anthony davis had averaged thirty four points. Aaron in those two wins remember. They lost the opener and anthony. Davis had a bad game and then he played really well so chris thought that you know it was in the bag. A lot of people did started making arrangements for the lakers to make it to the finals. Yet they gotta easy path. Nobody's gonna stop them. Nobody in the west scares. You didn't care about utah. Being the number one seed. They pooh-poohed phoenix pin number. Two and boy did they. Run into a buzzsaw devon booker chris paul bounce back from an injury and look at what they were able to came into staples.

As if he always one all the time. Okay in the first round. He was fourteen to know going into this. But you gotta step back. Don't be lazy a lot of people lazy and it's just easy to pick the obvious choice. I never thought they were going to beat. The sons. never thought. They had a run in them to get to the finals. Because too many things had to go right and they're dealing with two players who have been banged up and injured two star players and then air look at the reserves and the role players and the supporting cast.

You know each with a variety of different possibilities and outcomes either way whether they decide to approve an expansion or not. It won't take place though twenty twenty-five but the fact is they are definitely discussing it for it. I got two words for their expansion of the college. Football playoff the right or they. What's why stop it already. You know what it's always a money grab we'll have sixteen teams because they can make money and they'll still be the same two or three teams that are in the championship. That's what we have now. We don't need to expand the did you see the blowouts in the championship. Game and in the semifinals. Did you see him. So we're going to expand it and give more teams to play in a playoff. The damn no chance of winning when you play alabama and clemson and those folks why why waste time the money and the energy are.

Trevor Lawrence Responds to Critics
"Want to transition a little bit of nfl because obviously the next big thing on the nfl draft calendar or on the sports counter really is the nfl draft. And it's kind of crazy because there are so many different narratives that are popping up mack. Jones moving updraft boards justin field potentially moving down draft boards. So narratives going on. And so what. I kinda wanna do. That was a new piece of information that came out today. That really leads to an older piece of information from earlier this week that i want your opinion on and so listen. It's draft season. You hear all sorts of crazy stuff but there was a report out a lengthy report from the athletic earlier today which which which interviewed a bunch of anonymous gm's and coaches and stuff like that and so it said in this athletic report. You told me that justin field was going to be better than trevor lawrence and five years. I would say yes that could happen. That was an anonymous. Gm told that to the athletic. And so i thought that quote was kind of interesting in the context of what happened earlier this week with trevor lawrence. I know you and chris touched on it briefly but for the audience. That hasn't fully heard the quotes. I'll read it really quick robin than i want your response but trevor lawrence of course the presumptive number pick. Since the beginning of time no one has ever debated his place as the best player in this draft. He sat down for a pretty lengthy interview with sports illustrated and he said a few different things where he said. It's hard to explain that. Because i want people to know that i'm passionate about what i do and it's really important to me but i don't have the huge chip on my shoulder that everyone's out to get me and i'm trying to prove everybody wrong. I just don't have that. I can't manufacture that. I don't want to and i think that people mistake debt for not being competitive. I think that's unhealthy to certain extent. He's talking about that chip. Just always thinking that you've got to prove somebody wrong. You've got to do more. You've got to be better

"Jj redick longtime veteran fifteen years in the leak. Good player not great good. Though he requested a trade from new orleans pelicans in november and asked them to send them somewhere one he was up. You know not upset but hey drew's gone through holiday. That was a big part of why i came here. And you know. I would like to be close to my family in brooklyn close enough where i can go see him on off days things like that. They told him. Bet you got it. And of course they trade him to dallas so he's upset because he says they didn't keep their word. Here's jj reading on his own podcast. My understanding all along was that. I was going to get a buy out. And if i was going to be traded it was going to be to a team in the northeast where i was closer to home and i'd be able to see my family for the last two or three months of the season obvious that didn't happen. I don't think you're gonna get honesty from that front office. Just objectively speaking. I don't that's not an opinion. i just don't think you're going to get that. But i think i was a little naive in thinking that because i was in year fifteen and you know i had at least attempt to do things right throughout my career and i honored my end of the bargain but in terms of this front office. Yeah i mean. It's it's not something where i would expect. Certainly the agents that that worked on this with me to ever to ever trust that front office again.

Because he took porn stores out to restaurants for dinner that started in san francisco. Okay hump to say but he rob when brady was out for those four games suspension for gay or cheating for yup cheating. Whatever he play he played two games. Got hurt so my point is jimmy g. Come on you can't say a thing. 'cause you can't stay on the field if i'm having my ears my his back to you. Yes he can because because his point is He's had some injuries. Things happen chris but when he does play you win at a high clip. And you did. You weren't a super bowl. and yes. Did he missed past. Chris yes he did but the reason.

Does Lebron James Deserve More MVP Awards?
"Let me tell you what. Lebron james is notorious for a other than skipping town. Go to another team other than that you know what. He's famous for taking his foot off the gas to a regular seasons when he went back to cleveland. You remember that he was like i don't mean to have the number one seed. I don't need to kill myself during the regular season. that's why he didn't win. Mvp's he undersea deserve to have more last year. Janas was the mvp unwanted convincingly and overwhelmingly. Why bernie 'cause the year before. John is wanted and lashio. Jonah's had better numbers than the year before. And the milwaukee bucks had the best record in the nba. Lebron james was really shocked because he had some false narrative going on that he was the mvp. Come on bernie has some humility. You don't have to do that. Politics will knock it you an. Mvp saying goes true. Greatness needs no self promotion. And we've talked about this probably at least once in every show we've done robin that is lebron is incredibly insecure about his legacy. If he's really the king what is he. Allow these things to get under his skin. He did it last. September when he lost out on the mvp then he says well. What really pisses me off. Allie got sixteen votes out of. That's what really pisses me up. Look if you want to continue to die in this hill lebron. You're going to continue to be seen as petty and al kuzina says the mvp's very political award. Yeah so is the mvp and major league baseball in the nfl. Probably the nhl and the heisman trophy right on down the line. Linda brown goes on to say. I don't sit around thinking about it or crying about it. That's what he just said that's all. He does time even when they won the championship last year and i gave him top credit. Lebron fan never will be better given top credit. Because the lakers are a franchise of eras you had to wilt air the jabbar air the magic the kobe and shaq era negative lebron air to win a championship and when he did the first thing he does say i want my damn respect do what he. What are you constantly begging for. What exactly is it. What happened in because you know why bernie it tells you all you need to know. He knows deep down. He's not the best player all time he knows his michael jordan. That's why it's always looking for these other things to add to his resume. That's why he he wants an mvp and you know what he sees now. He seems j. He sees james harden in brooklyn without a kevin durant and they've won fourteen out of fifteen or whatever the number is bernie and and he's looking going and when a went out to lakers stumbled he's not going to win the

"Michigan state has announced that its basketball team will now be called the msu spartans presented by rocket mortgage. You sit on a throne of lies. I would think so barat. it's true. Now here's the saving grace at. I believe in the way. I'm reading it. This is a story on. Yahoo is says the team will be called the michigan. The msu you know it presented by rocket mortgage at the breslin center. That's how they'll be known throughout the breslin center which is their home court their home arena so my guess rob is when near now announces a team. That's what he's going to call them at the beginning to gain when they come out for warm ups right before the game whatever. They're the msu sparks as presented by rocket mortgage. I don't expect that when they go elsewhere people are going to refer to them as that maybe they'll announce that before the game but obviously throughout the game everywhere you go. Call them the spartans or michigan state. You think i'm wrong. I mean there's it doesn't make it that much better but it makes it a little better to me. It's total nonsense. It's a allowed. Everything's not for sale. I'm sorry chris. I still respect the steinbrenner family. Chris for not taking the name. They could have put a name on yankee stadium on my right yes or no and made its montemar. Names right all right yankee stadium. How about madison square garden. Could it be very heels right. Could it be american express field reno. I mean they give me making money off of it and they won't do it. Can we have something. Everything's not for sale. I get it dan gilbert. Who was the president of ragweed and look is an alum. He went there. He loves the sports. He tried to hire tommaso to coach the cast. Chris i get the relationship. He's he's a spartan just beat the presenting sponsor when they when they make that announcement. You don't need to the msu sports presented by rocket mortgage. Why would you do that to your alma mater right. Well that's what i'm saying if it's anything but what i said right if is anything but okay well. We announced the team. You know we're announcing the starting lineup. The now star lineup. So the ms you spartans presented by rocket mortgage. But okay. i can deal with that. But if there you got jerseys now. And if that's what their official name is going to be elsewhere. There's a major problem. And i agree with you like and this is just this just shows the other greed. We talked about it and they're not paying players these deals. This is just a pity of the degree of this now rob. I'll even say this. I would've rather them. Just call them. The msu rockets michigan state rockets. Not is that this is ridiculous. This really is bad. And i just don't understand what all the money my god is it. Okay right don't get every nickel chris. I still would have been a sponsor right. There's tons of money probably just not as much maybe wide. I don't know how much is enough. I don't get it seriously. It's ridiculous like i say again. I'm betting that is just going to be announced at various times but not consistently

Chris Broussard: LeBron is right, KD, Warriors Big 3 were better than Nets
"Asked about playing in next week's free for the first time on thursday. Lebron james pump the brakes on calling it. An unprecedented collection of talent reminding reporters quote. We forgot about katie. Stephan play. already. I mean there you go there you go right there of course lost back to back finals to the warriors big three that he referenced right then i first sard is back joining us. I don't think so chris. Do you agree with the brown hair. Well i i'm guessing that skip sensors and alterior motive. Oh i won't go there. I'll be interested in seeing what he says. But i'm going with the golden state guys staff clay and and i've got five reasons why number one the pieces fit together better when those three katie went to golden state. We had no questions about whether or not it was going to work because none of the guys are ball dominant. None of them needed the ball in their hands. A lot to be effective and give you twenty plus points. Obviously james harden and car. We have been bald dominant dribble it a lot which can make it more difficult to fit together now. They're fitting together great offensively but theoretically there games are a lot more ball dominant. Golden state guys to golden state was better defensively. And i'm not just talking about draymond green. Who's not even part of this conversation. You add katie. Who was younger and i. I'm sure it was a better defender at that point. Then he can be at this point a little older often an achilles injury and then klay thompson was a legitimately very good defender. He made an all nba. Defensive team steph obviously is in the category of harden and kyrie. None of them are really great defenders. The third thing better shooters as well as hard and kyrie shoe. And they are great shooters steph. Curry is the best shooter in nba history. So good that he changed the game. He literally changed the way the nba is played because he's such a great shooter and clay is arguably arguably the second greatest shooter of all time again that enables you to fit better together and certainly for today's game the better shooters i mean. That's a huge thing. You have fourth no drama. They they they were low maintenance guys in golden state k. d. had a little drama but for the most part that's a low maintenance group in brooklyn i i love his game but i gotta worry about kyrie. He was playing great at the beginning of the season. And then all of a sudden just went awol. Is that going to happen again. Is going to be happy. The entire season playing shooting guard. Or will he get the rich to have the ball in his hands more again even last night. Why was car sitting out. They said back tightness. But i bet you replace the next five games and is fine and plays great like they need to be on the floor as much as possible. I can't be legitimately injured hamstring but kyrie hard and they don't need to be just sitting out to rest are so the drama a is there. And here's the final thing steph and clay before k. got there. They proved that they could lead a team to a championship. They proved they didn't need this transcendent lebron or k. d. or somebody like that to lead them to a championship. They didn't need a stack team. They did it on their own k. D. was certainly the best player on those golden state teams but he went to a champion. Already he is still yet to prove. He can lead his own team to a championship. Even though it was the best player kyri hit one of the greatest shots in nba. History may be the greatest. But obviously that was lebron's team. Kyrie has have much playoff success without lebron james yet and we know harden has yet to prove that he can lead a team to a championship. So for all those reasons. I'm going with golden state

That's the majority of the owners revenue. And what they think just. Because that money's not coming in doesn't matter. They should get paid ridiculous. It is the most ridiculous thing just to act like that isn't a factor now. The percentage is different. I'm not gonNA argue with the Union. Ben Over the percentages but to act like nothing's changed when they're no fans in the stands and everything is is the same like okay well instead of playing eighty one hundred sixty two. We're GONNA play eighty one so we'll just I'll salary in half that but there's no fans and there's no concessions had eleven dollar French fries lady lately because I exactly the thing about the baseball economics and I do agree with the players on this. Because of the dynamic with the Union and ownership if you're going to ask for this draconian pay cut. Then the owner should have to open up the books to some degree and let the players. Look the numbers a little bit. I don't think that's an outrageous position. The owners will never going to do it because if you were the players and you got that information you could then you take your medicine this year and then in future negotiations you would have a competitive advantage in. That would destroy the owners. No doubt about it. Let's keep it going on the phones. We're waiting for Dwight..

"Fox sports radio. And I want to congratulate all of you graduates out there on a job. Well done is very unfortunate. That your graduation ceremonies have been canceled or postponed a bud. That does not diminish your chievements. And what you've accomplished in any way shape or form you are to be honored because you've done a terrific job over the last four or five six years however long it may have taken you to graduate. The key is that you have graduated. You now have the credentials that you've been seeking and you're now about to step into a new world with new possibilities. I was in your place. Thirty years ago. graduated from Oberlin College in Nineteen Ninety. I hate the date myself like that. But that is the reality and in these next few moments I wanNA share with you some of the things that I've learned throughout my career that I can help you become the person you want to become an whatever field of endeavor you so choose. The first thing is that you must believe in yourself. It's natural to be fearful. It's natural to have questions. It's natural to have doubts. But you've also got to have an inner belief in yourself that you can achieve great things of belief in yourself. That's so strong that you're willing to take some risk. When I first began in the sports writing business I was a part time writer at the Cleveland. Plain dealer and after three and a half years at the plain dealer. I still was part-time and full-time opening came up. And I apply for it. It was to back up the Cleveland browns. The Cleveland Indians and the Cleveland Cavaliers and I was just a high school sports writer and I spoke with the sports editor sent some of my clips in and I didn't get the job. They left me as a part-time reporter. Now I had enough confidence in myself to leave the plain dealer because of that and go to another place for a smaller paper that was nearby called the Akron Beacon German and the Akron Beacon Journal gave me the opportunity to cover professional sports. And they moved me onto the Cleveland Indians and the Cleveland Cavaliers beat and it was my belief in myself that enable meeting make that move. I didn't let the fact that the people at the plain dealer didn't think I was worthy of a full time job. Didn't apparently think I was ready to cover. Professional Sports. Thought I was where I needed to be at the high school level. I didn't let that sit with me. I knew that I have better things ahead in that. I was capable of much more even if it may go into a smaller paper and risking leaving the biggest paper in Ohio. I was willing to do it because I believed in myself. You've got to have that same type of belief in your abilities. Secondly you've got to understand the fine line between confidence and arrogance. I just talked about how you need to believe in yourself but you don't need to be arrogant. I'M GONNA share a story with you when I was an intern at the Cleveland Plain dealer. After my junior year of college I wrote my first story for the plain dealer and the sports editor of the assistant. Sports editor looked at it and didn't like fact. He thought he was garbage. I hadn't had any experience really in journalism and I did the best I could but he ripped it to shreds to the point. He was yelling at me. The door was closed in the sports department. But everybody out there her what he was saying. It was embarrassing and to some degree he was saying. Hey I'm sure there's something you do. Well but journalism isn't for everybody so I had to remain confident in myself but also had to not be arrogant so when I left his office I didn't walk out of their thinking. He doesn't know what he's talking about. What who in the world does he think he is? I know what I'm doing. That article was great. No I took the constructive criticism. He gave me and learn from it. I ask other writers in the newsroom in the sports department what I could do to improve. I listen to them. I knew I didn't know everything even as I remain confident and I apply what they told me and started writing my stories based on the advice that they give me and thirty articles later that had been published in plain dealer. They offer me a job after I graduated so if I have been arrogant thinking I'm confident and I know everything and how dare speak to me that way. Then I never would have learned from my mistakes air from the advice that he gave me even if he gave it in a harsh man. Thirdly do not have a sense of entitlement. This business doesn't oh you anything. I don't care what school you went to. I don't care what the grade point average was. I don't care how highly you think of yourself. It doesn't owe you anything your mentality has got to be that I've got earn every single promotion or advancement that I get. I'll share with you when I first started doing national television. Now I've been in the New York heirs right for the New York Times and does some local TV BUT ESPN was starting. A new television show called cold pizza now. It's called I take the show was at seven. Am Eastern time and they were asking local writers in the New York area to come into their studio early in the morning to do hits for the show. They weren't paying thing and they weren't putting you in a hotel overnight so they would pick you up early in the morning and then you would do the show. I then went so far as to when I was on the west coast covering Kobe. Bryant against the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference Finals. Two Thousand and four that I would be cold pizza at four. Am Pacific Time. So I'm getting up at two thirty in the morning to go. Do this show for free. No money and I had other writers in the New York area. Say I can't believe you doing that.

"Is that a better spot than Durant? Plus, what they already have in LA with the clippers because they have less ability to easily sign another max guy to me, it is, is the east still an easier route than the west even though we are seeing the east get stronger to me, it is. And does the does New York City have an allure Alf? A court different than Los angels to me. It does so for all those reasons, but even we just wanna talk with basketball, the Knicks with Kevin ran, plus an all star aren't instant championship contender. Is that a lower though affect his legacy? You think is legacies affected by whatever decision. He makes after Golden State would depend on if he wins his legacy. Emmy he doesn't want to leave with his legacy being Golden State, even if they three peat Kevin Durant with three championships but they were in going say he couldn't win without them. That's what the story will be. He wasn't a champion. He lost to them. He had him down. Three to one. He had to be able to join them. And also, you have to realize, though, drama, clay step, they got four LeBron's got three championships. So you keep in counter this, and I believe that Golden State in those initial three guys who were there, it means more to them, because they were in the program drafted by crow program, cultivated, by the Golden State Warriors, and, and I understand that right now. All of a sudden, there seems to be some public momentum towards well, maybe Katie will stay if that was on the board. Either leave this calf strain and what has happened since then has removed it entirely. If Katie had never gotten hurt and continued on this toward pace, he was on who's average and thirty nine five and five in the eight games, prior and step by the way had been struggling somewhat in during that same stretch. And they go on to win a championship that, that validates the previous two years in a different way. Maybe not to the same degree as winning elsewhere, but validates them in a different way, like guys are we really I'm averaging forty points at fifty point playoff game. I beat the clippers essentially by myself, what are we talking about here, but seeing what they did without in a sweep, even if he comes back, and he's great in the finals evening wins another finals MVP? There was still be people saying okay, but. You wouldn't assess ity or a luxury, the same way of LeBron had never won that championship in Cleveland, if it missed them step inmate, and LeBron been to those four fouls in Cleveland, but lost all four, you know, people would say, well, yeah, you've got to rings. He had to go to Miami to get me at team up. Wait and boss. They would find a way to chip away at it. So for Durant, the only mountain to climb, as one that Golden State doesn't present. I think New York is the biggest tracked him out until. Thank you for listening to the hoops on FOX podcast. Don't forget subscribe and leave a five star review, letting us know what you think of the show..

"About Kevin. No. Of course, he's going to say, we're confident we're re-signing them both, and what rich climb going to say on this Wall Street Journal sports panel. No, we know what we're doing. But we're not telling anybody they're saying see what they have to say. Here my opinion is not changed because I don't think any of Kevin rans plans have changed, which is been. He was considering leaving Golden State last season. And it wasn't until it wasn't until the end of the year run that they was they were fully confident was coming back, a year ago, all year long, everything's been moving towards the New York Knicks. And if he wants his best chance to not only build his empire but to separate himself from LeBron in hopes of passing LeBron doing it by ambushing your hub cross the country as opposed to across the street from LeBron in Los Angeles is the smartest move. So no, my opinion has not changed. One percent. They'd Kevin Durant. It's going to be a Nick next year. So you think that he's got to go to New York compared to going to the clippers? Oh, yes. Because much like LeBron going to the Lakers, I don't think it's just about basketball. I think it's about setting up your post basketball impact in one of the biggest cities in the country and LeBron LA's, a big city. But LeBron sucking up a lot of oxygen there as far as people that want to be involved with, at least turned mobile. They've got Magic Johnson there. Novela Brown there Kobe's there as well. The Derrick jeeter is no longer in New York. He's in Miami. There's a space for that in New York City, I'm going to stay away from the business side, because I don't necessarily agree with that because I believe that in LA, especially with the clippers if you win a championship because also I do realize it's the Knicks would I if I could pick, would I rather one, a championship with the Knicks are with the clippers, of course. But I mean man, this is about trying to win in anywhere. He goes in adds a championship. He's going to add to his legacy, you guys can argue about all who's gonna make more money off the court that don't mean nothing to me. This is about sports is a sports show, and I believe that right now all these players realize how much winning has to do with it. And Kevin Durant. He has seen since he went down with that calf strain. They have not lost a game. They have not missed a beat. He's responding to people saying that, oh if they win. Kevin Durant, his two other rings they're going to be. Asterik on in everything. So there's a lot of stuff going on. I believe the basketball is the most important part of it. And I believe that the clippers are in the game, Doc Rivers Jerry West St. bomber. They are in the game. And I think that, that series battle for the two against the clippers I believe it gave Kevin Durant. No. Maybe a little more confidence than if I was able to join this crew guys that we can get some stuff done where do you think? Kevin Durant has if winning is, is really what's on his mind and his biggest priority and playing basketball. Where do you think he's got the best chance to win gold because obviously if it's just winning and he would stay where if it's just winning and it's just money stay where he is. So, like, which is why the fact that even on the board that he that he's leaving to makes it pretty obvious that he's leaving, if that makes sense because the two things we are people talking about winning and money goes. Eight can offer them the most money. It's the best chance to win. So. It's about legacy components as well. Even we set the business part aside. I don't know that the clippers are in a much better position moving forward. Dan, the Knicks because the Knicks are blank slate. The Knicks have to max cap space, the cap spots and the ability to really be in the game. Anthony davis. So now I don't it's unlikely they would get Durant Amax free agent and Anthony Davis. But to me, it's very unlikely they would get Durant, and neither of those other two, it would be Durant. Plus, Anthony Davis or Durant, plus all star level guard X whether it's kyri Kimba, Jimmy Butler that makes you an instant contender..

"But if they lose the series without him, it elevates, those, then you got to say no, they did need. Next Vinson goodwill joins Nick and CC to break down the warriors sweep of the blazers. How incredible is this run in Vinnie for them, you know what it's hard to quantify when you're in a moment, even from a historical standpoint like you have you can't wait a couple of years before you fully appreciate life for me. I'm a music lover. So I think of the warriors is like Stevie Wonder in the seventies or prince in the eighties where when it's happening, they're dropping album after album. You're not really figuring. Oh my God. This is classic. This is historic. And I think this is how we're going to the warriors and ten or fifteen years from now. We're not gonna think about, oh, a change came from free agency from golden from. Okay. See where they had a seven game series and we were the pie of arrive, we're going to look at some beautiful basketball that change the way that this game has been played for generations to come in a short period of time like the way the game was playing twenty fourteen compared to the way, the games being played now it's almost like aliens came down here and said shoot. More three switch on defense and basically take all the positions away. And I don't think that there's been any. Greater change of shift in any point in such a short period of time in NBA history with a game look so completely different and aesthetically better or worse, depending on your since abilities. And I think that's what a warriors greatest legacy is going to be once we're able to remove all the feelings and everything else from just how beautiful they've made the game look how easy and how dedicated they've been throughout these playoff runs five straight NBA finals man, like as of a decade ago, the watermark was essentially three. They're, they're Russell Celtics went to ten straight to eighteen league. It's different Russellville degrade winner in sports history. But post Russell Celtics. How did you get to more than three straight? Will you had Kareem and not quite his apex prime but still MVP caliber cream and prime. Magic Johnson to top five guys on the same team at the same time. That's how the Lakers did it or you had Larry Bird when he won three consecutive league in BP's to go along with Kevin McHale coming off your bench. And then Bill Walton coming off your bench, along with a great eight man roster. That's how you did it. No one else had done it as a decade ago. We forget, because what LeBron with Miami, and then Cleveland, but your Detroit Pistons, they went to three straight NBA finals the team. When I say, you or the team you grew up watching, they went three straight NBA finals, the year they're going for their fourth straight swept in the conference finals shack, and Kobe's Lakers. They went to three straight NBA finals the year. They're going for four straight..

"I joint skipping Shantou breakdown, Kevin Durant, recent Twitter responses on this free agency. What do you think let me start by giving us some background, my relationship k d Katie, and I have what I call a love hate relationship, and I'm not trying to say, we're bosom buddies, and we're all that close. But we do have a relationship we have texted this. No exaggeration. There have been days. A couple of days we've takes for two three hours straight. Okay about life about basketball about media about faith, and I've, I've challenged him or his faith. And because we do share faith while, neither one of us is perfect in our faith walk, and I've challenged him and he's challenged me and our faith common faith in Jesus Christ. No matter how flaw, we each may be has always enabled us to come to a point of civility and understanding, even if we disagree and even if we agree to disagree, we've always been able to come to that point of understanding. Banding. So this tweet people are like clapback at you play. This was tame KB has gone at me much harder. Sure privately like he doesn't do it every time. But when I've said things on TV that he doesn't agree with he, he will come back at me privately, and he's called me names. He's gone much harder than that tweet. And again, we've always been able to talk it out come to a place of understanding so that this tweet was was nothing to me. And what I'll say obviously, he tried to go at it literally grow worst nightmare. But obviously figure of speed, right? Just that this, this narrative, this narrative that is followed him in dog team could become in the past and get worse if they win it without him. But he here's what I feel about the tweet. I hope Katie does have this perspective. I hope he say man. I'm blessed. I know what I came from. I came from a broken home. I came from poverty, and now I'm an NBA superstar. My family is taking care of my future. Family will be set. Nothing that happens on the basketball court. No basketball narrative can take away my inner peace and joy. That's what the tweet was saying. I hope that is true. I fear it may not be us not right. But I hope that he has reached. I think I think that's how players can deal with this stress that is put on them. Lebron his figured that out like he said. Look, yeah. Basketball, we got some struggles right now. But my life is great Ness, how you have to look at it. So I that's how I look at his tweet and I'll say that I have. No, this is my last point. I've no problem ever we Katie or any player coming at me and you guys noticed in our position. We are we make living critiquing athlete right positively or negatively? Right. So it will be hypocritical of us to. Not be able to take it when they come back. So I'm fine with, with a guy coming back at me like we're do it was very these. These understand. That's my job is to critique or analyze his performance. His job is to perform when you perform, well, I give you a positive criti- where you don't perform well, I'll give you a negative. Critique what's happening before our very eyes in Kevin. Durant vary is his impact on the Golden State Warriors is slowly diminishing because he didn't play a game. And they swept the Western Conference. Finals is Steph curry had the most points in a suite in, in a history. That's not conjecture. That's not innuendo or speculation. That's backed by the way they did turn around the Houston series without him without it. They look like they have a little easier time. Yes outing, then when he was act. Correct. Go in your player in you're injured you team to win, but deep down. You wanna struggled a little bit you wanted to mission? That's human nature in about a tell you, otherwise that lying.
