Statue of former Washington Redskins owner removed at RFK

"Okay. Players in the NBA. Wow, that's that's that's him a revelation. My goodness be sure to catch live editions of the odd couple with Chris Broussard Rob Parker Weekdays at seven PM Eastern Four PM Pacific on Fox sports radio and the iheartradio APP. There's an interesting story that came out today. The statue in Washington the statue of the former redskins owner George Preston Marshall was removed from RFK stadium. So, he was against, he was the former owner, but he was against integrating the franchise in the early nineteen sixties. So props to them for removing it. But I. Here's what I'm going to say as we see all of these confederate statues. Flags being removed now you you see the statue of the redskins owner. There was another one I can't remember the college. I think it was a college perhaps where there was another statue removed. I say go. Let's go the whole way. And start changing the names of these teams that are these nicknames that are Indian nicknames and look I'm not an expert on native American culture. But I I would say leave it up to the native Americans. But! Redskins is a racial slur. That'd be like the. Hat calling the team. The say ambles or the end words. I mean that's what it is, and my thing is this. If we really are against racism. You can't just be against racism that affects black people. You have to be against racism that affects all of the people that have been hurt by it in this country and the native Americans clearly. Were hurt by it. And so the only difference Allison. Obviously, there were different forms of oppression. Slave reverses annihilation darn near annihilation. But. The only difference in why the names of these native these native American nicknames remain. Is because native Americans by and large don't have the power in American society that blacks do so. Blacks have the power to make noise. We have become part of popular culture through our athletes are entertainers politicians? We have actors in the whole nine yards we have. People who do we have enough power to make noise to complain to March to protest and we have enough numbers being twelve thirteen percent of the population. So, they wouldn't dare have a team nickname a black slur at this point. And now they're removing all these other elements of the culture that have been offensive to black people, but we gotta do the same thing for the native Americans they just don't have the population to make a lot of noise about it or the power, but if we're really against. Him How can we pull down these symbols of black Oh Prussian, but not pulled down these symbols of native American oppression. And I don't look I. Don't know about the seminoles. Is that you know again I would leave it up to the native Americans. But if the native Americans, I know, some of them are differ in their opinions, but get their leaders. To African Americans. Get our leaders to speak on stuff. Get their leaders if they're leaders feel like these things are offensive. The braves the Indians the Redskins, maybe even the chiefs. If they feel like they're offensive change the names period and I think it should be. There should become a part of the conversation. This is interesting. Chris I gotta be I gotTA. Plead ignorance here I never looked into what the name redskins beans. Did you ever think to look it up or anything? Well, just think about it, though Redskins, it's like saying black skins are yellow skins, or I mean we know the contentious relationship to the least between the whites and the and the native Americans. When I grew up. Honestly you know it was the stereotype of scalping. Indians and things like that. Those were stereotype. Even Cater Bait yesterday I learned. Something I'd never knew that's enough I. Had you not the black? The black players didn't know and that's my point. If we are eliminating stuff like that and I'm not saying we shouldn't, but that's minor stuff right there. There's a lot of mine. American there is a lot of minor stuff, and this is interesting because we're seeing. We're trying to seem like. We're getting rid of all these symbols. Guy That you said they were moved to statue. George Preston Marshall, so he and a group bought the Boston braves, and they ha. They had also the braves and the Redskins, so there was some kind of connection for them to native Americans now I don't know why. If you're naming a team, you would name it the braves and the reds. Would you name it after I mean most the bears, the tight you know, most of these names are are yeah. Boy. I guess cowboys is. Doesn't make sense to me my only pushback and again I'm not saying this shouldn't be done is. If, we're trying to tell these young athletes. Hey, Dwayne Haskins quarterback of the redskins. You shouldn't suit up this fall until they changed the name of the Redskins, and then we pit the young. african-american quarterback and his whole team will, it wouldn't be a

"Jake Fromm Rookie quarterback for the buffalo bills. He got outed. You know I guess he was in a text conversation with a female friend must must be a scorned female. She dropped dime now Donnie, she drop quarter. Right right so anyway. He. Had written her in a tweet in twenty, nine thousand nine just a year ago, but no. This is a quote from him. They were talking about guns and all this, because obviously, that's been a big conversation in America. Control and so on and so forth. And he writes, but no guns are good. They need to let me get suppressors. Just make them very expensive, so only elite white people can get them Haha and then. I, guess later on in the text. He said you know. I'm not an elite white person. Well, he may not have been in two thousand nineteen, but he knew he was going to get drafted in the NFL which he just did, and he would soon be a quote, unquote elite, white person, and here's the Rub Rob. He released a statement today. Here's what he say. I'm just going to read the first part. I am extremely sorry that I chose to use the words elite white people in a text message conversation. Although I never meant to imply that. I am an elite white person as stated later in the conversation, there's no excuse for that word, choice and sentiment.

"But but overall, he was thirty four from three and he only attempted fewer than three a game. So he's not. You're not gonna just put him. At the line and say Jimmy do you think because he's one he's not going to be the Jimmy Butler. We all know in love. And that's a very good player. He's going to be neutered to some degree. If you brought in a more traditional coach, who's gonna put Chris Paul at the one James harden into, to Jimmy Butler at the three and play a different style. Then it might make some rights. But look, this is typical Darryl more. He's a good GM but he's overrated. Every people think he's the best thing in the NBA. He goes after big names, regardless of chemistry, regardless of fit, regardless of any of the human elements. Thank you. Well, I mean, I don't I remember how you guys felt about Chris Paul. But most people were like houses going to work if we skip it how they go play together. When they beat the ball and you see now now that said, if I'm Houston, I'm for the most part standing, Pat. And I'm I may make a tweak here there. Trotted dan. Tony the tweet the offense a little bit. But only, Golden State beat you and they're not gonna be the same. So run it back. I mean we've seen the Detroit of Isaiah Thomas. Michael Jordan's bulls. Teams have often had to take their law school, Gordon get to the championship. So this is typical overreaction from narrow more alleyway you, you were after desert go his skill. Did you get a transcript? Show. Watch. So I just because today you just always at every day. Oh, wait. You're the only that was my birthday. You're the only person in the known world who didn't know. Oh you've announced it. Every today by birthday. Let's turn your turn. I love you. Chris Broussard, but I can't tell you how much I disagreed with every point you made that's a first because usually, I give you like that would. Not today because it's not your birthday. They are stuck with Chris Ball. They are not willing to trade that forty odd million dollar contract. You're just not. And they're stuck with a guy who at times last year to me, look like a shell of his New Orleans self that guy who could just dominate it about six tall and his first couple years in the league. He is to me over the hill, just slightly over it, but he's over it and he has lost a step. So now you say, run it back, it's going to be the same song third fourth verse in. It's not going to end. Well, because it's pretty clear. These two are do not invite him anymore in I'm not sure you can just roll the ball back out there and say you guys just figuring out because there's no Kevin Durant. Just go figure it out because we still got cappella, we still got Eric Gordon and we still got a chance. Maybe we can figure it out this time and muddled through and make it work because it's so open door winnable this year. To me, Jimmy Butler is just what the doctor ordered for this team right now. And as I told Shannon, it might be Dr Freud, or Dr Phil or somebody, but they need some doctor, douse. Maybe you quack okay Jimmy Butler is his own man. And he is a leader for better or for worse. And if you put him with a bunch of young timber wolves, it's for worse because he's just going to run them all out of the locker room because he's not going to put up with their baby nece their childishness, and they're not gonna like it when he pushes back on them. And they rebelled against Jimmy Butler in this case, you have to veteran stars one's a superstar ones. I don't know if Chris was over a superstar. I'm not sure about that. But he's a star hall of fame all Famer..

"Then you queue continuously undermine Steph curry, oh, he had a three one lead. But what about the rent? He had a three one lead step before still got the three one lead on the and Kevin Iran came up shorter than born tore you in the Western Conference finals you brought that up because now it's coming clear in clear that for eight years. Kevin Durant was. Stuck in a word wrestle west. Well, what happened three the last four years? He played with Russell Westbrook. Russell Westbrook, especially the last two seasons. They play together took more shots than Kevin Durant. Three in their last four years together. Russell ball hogging took more shots than Kevin Durant and Kevin still in Oklahoma City. Stuck with a victim of the decision. Making and ball hogging of Russell Westbrook. He still won four scoring titles and in VP, but he was shackled by Russell Westbrook. So he couldn't match LeBron MVP's because he didn't have his usage rate. If you compare usage rates over career ball in hand. Lebron had it like a third more of the game than Kevin Durant hasn't even Golden State. He just shares the ball. He just gets them when they come to him. So what have we seen? He is won back to back finals MVP's by going to the kings house and beating him at his own game right in his face. What was the passing of the torch shot to finals ago? Late in game. Three in the king's else that was forty five seconds left. And by the way, down the stretch that game the last one fifteen of the pivotal game. Three the turning point of that series. Would you believe? Kevin durant? Went on seven to nothing run. Just by himself to win that basketball game effectively just in that series. And remember he shot the shot of shots. They were down to any dribble. The ball to floor and shot at right? I don't know if we have that shot or we've seen it right now. Yep. Shot it right in LeBron James grill shot right in his face and made us three point shot in the just ended the series affectively. Thank you for listening to the hoops on FOX podcast.

"But the most important point is cantor, and it happened in February when the Knicks decided to release him several days later, Portland signs them. You don't know what the future is? But now, you're center gets hurt with a devastating injury and Nurkic. And now you have a perfect replacement guy this guy experience a guy that offense will give you that other score in case they're having that bad night because. Last night for for long periods. He was the best player on the court. I mean, he is giving them a lift specially on offense of in and his drastic drastically improved on the defensive insole right now Portland is not in the position if they don't make that they don't sign him in that. It was even more impressive because you think about the series. They come up with okay see motion series, obviously Dame took that series very personal game one. He's still was on fire in thirty nine points. And then you get into the second game and the to calm down. I was impressed. I didn't think they could win without him. Sees McCulloch having huge numbers. They defense was terrific. Wasn't the best basketball. We saw. But what they did what they had to do. You wanna go in there and still want and they want ugly. They won ugly in the hardest place to win the NBA all year a team that all season long lost seven times at home. If they went if Denver goes into this series thinking, if we just stop Daming, we've got a chance to you like them in this NAR. They gotta play better make some shots. Get some different guys step up for. Give nuggets. I mean, they they make six threes. They missed ten free those last night and they out rebounded. I mean, it was like a ridiculous number like sixty nine seven rebounds. They had when they twenty three office rebounds. Still was not able to score. They're gonna have to figure it out. I don't know how hurt is torii Craig. He's Bigfoot him got his nose. So I don't know how after I don't know how fish and he can be with the series being short and not a lot of restaurants. But I like the fact that Portland was able to get a game in there. Now, go home to their crowd where they they play really good basketball. But also to let's not forget, I thought Evan Turner was pretty good last night that I'll that was Jason the fourth quarter. And if you see the I read that some of the quotes after the the press conference, but I read them in the game right up this morning that CJ said, listen we Damon. I had sometimes it spoken. Sometimes it's unspoken communication about. Who's who's going to be the closer and Dame could tell he didn't have it going, and he could tell I did have it going to to a greater degree. So in that fourth quarter. Dame, only takes two shots CJ takes seven scores eight points. But if I said before the game that to your point on the rebounding Denver was going to have a a let plus eleven rebounding but more jarringly unbelievably plus sixteen offense of rebounding edge. They were going to get twenty three offense of rebounds Dame was gonna make five shots and scored less than fifteen points. And they're gonna lose to the blazers in Denver. I it's a really impressive ugly win for Portland that now has home court in this series two times during the game that Dame was able to defer to CJ in the second quarter. We're Portland was able to get a little margin. They were able to pull away from them a little bit CJ was nice in that quarter. And then in the fourth quarter where you see Dame took the back seat..

"Hundred percent. No, let's ask this too will KDB a real challenger to Jordan's legacy. Enthrone can no no. And it's unfortunate. This is not even my take. This is just my assessment of how the barber shop is going. Let us row, you know, how the world. Yeah. This is how go they already. Slicing K D up. He even looked at as a whole person and player like Jordan was as great Utah about Jordan. He's a great player Katie gray score a one of the best shooters all time. They're already got them in subcategories. I'm like that's not fair. And then they slice him up another level. They start on his championships and start putting the asterisk by. This is the Kobe affect Kobe. Bryant won three championships with Shaquille O'Neal and everybody was walking around said. Okay. Call me three time champion into the side of the fish was like all these really went through. And then I thought Kobe. Buying into the fact, I got three I mean on on the table, and then he wants four four and he acted like it was his first then I realized oh Kobe listening to them too. So they can slice you. And they do that to be right now is it really back to back finals VP two for you. Or is it you and Steph what you gotta do when you leave if he wins another one somewhere else that's not going to be enough. And I don't think they give them proper credit for where you're not giving them public critic. But to the people who know basketball, they know that Katy is all around great basketball player he defends at a high level. He passes the ball at a high level, he rebounds at a high level. I mean is nothing really that Kevin rank cannot do and to me I think he's on a verge of being one of the all time greats. I mean, the route he's going listen everybody say, oh, he went join the war, Katie, go, caller wars and say, hey, I want to come over to know, they recruited Kevin Durant. So that means the warriors needed. Kevin durant? Kevin durant? Then happen didn't need the war. He could win anywhere. But that's how the story goes..

Getting him on a better nutrition program getting that weight down because a lot of people there feel like his knee problems are related to he's overweight now to shape without a shack issue in LA. They just felt he was too heavy year shack wasn't Allen notice Shaq was this big when he was younger at this age because he was a little he wasn't slim ever. But he wasn't the shack remember LA at a young age. So you out I'm working with MB or his body on his work ethic.

So we're sitting there talking and we're watching this game. And I said this guy's unbelievable. But I think they should trade him and not getting my wife's not a sports fan. So she's not emotionally connected to this stuff. It's just all commonsense. Her and I said what if you had an employee when you were H R you hired him for two years. He couldn't show up for work. She'd be like, well, he's ally ability, and I said M B and she said, we'll did he get healthier. I said, yeah. Kind of but he just missed fourteen of twenty four games after the all star break he missed playoff games last year this year, and you need six treatment today to get on the floor. And she said that you can't build around that as an employee base. If you just take the emotion out of it. Now what you're seeing right now, you saw last rated trade. Okay. After what I saw with Westbrook win in the MVP. I was like stocks high get him out. But here's the how you can trade. And I agree. I would rather have James harden.

"And then all of a sudden, you got Manny, and Curt Schilling and these two sort of transformative personalities put the franchise on their backs and said schilling and Manny or like, no, no, we're better than the Yankees. And sometimes it takes a transformative personality in the locker room. Well, Kalis not a transformative personnel. Just a really good player. Right. So the reality is Toronto's not a free agent destination. There's about six of them in the NBA maybe four to six asked what they were. So fortunate to get Dhamar derozen, the stay Vince Carter, Tracy McGrady Crispus the day will I'm joking about candidate drinking on it. But they will have a hard time. Yes. Getting American Free agents to go. Of course is simple. It's not as a great city. But is not American when you're there, you feel it. Yeah. Home it sound. It's is elated and it's expensive. And that's the reality Vancouver out. A franchise. I think Vancouver's the most beautiful city in North America. Read I go there like every other year and that players won't play there. And you're like. Food city sites money facilities, Greg Greg, Greg. Greg great didn't wanna play there. Let me let me say this about Embiid though. And I've said Philadelphia just loves me as a city Cleveland Philadelphia. But I've said this I can feel with the Sixers a lot of Oklahoma City, and they had choice they had hardened Ed Westbrook and Durant, and they chose Westbrook. Over harden mistake. It was becoming a shooters leak. They didn't actively choose Westbrook over Durant. But Durant felt that way they made the wrong choice. And now there are one hundred franchise. Philadelphia's got four guys they all want max money to biases and good enough to get it butlers. Got an attitude. I'd be worried 'em beads got a health issue. And Ben I'd give it to him. But he's got to be able to shoot. Philadelphia keeps thinking they got this huge window. Chris. I don't think they do. I think these guys are gonna start peeling off. Well, we we know the window. Definitely is. About two or three years. Now, if m b gets his health in order it could be much longer. Hopefully, he will for the sake of NBA fan. What about Butler? I look Butler is great. He is great. He solved their problems down the stretch their execution problems. But I still would be hesitant to turn the franchise over to him. And we you have to let this play out if they get to the NBA finals, then I feel better about bringing back this team as it is what if they beat Toronto and then lose to either Milwaukee or Boston. What would you do? Well, I'm not trading in beat. I know you've been on the trade in beat this summer thing. There's no way I'm writing I'm writing with him as long as I can now next year healthwise, he falls apart. And it looks like we just can't count on me. That's another story..

"To try to close out the clippers quick turnaround to an afternoon game to game. Once gives me at oracle where they have been hit and miss all year. Steph and Klay allegedly had ankle issues. They combined to shoot Jamaica five threes in game one. It's right there for the taking and they flat out got robbed. And you're correct. Or I'm with you on this. They stepped on the floor mentally defeated in game two. They just didn't look right to me. I know they shot the ball pretty well. But they didn't handle the ball. Well, they didn't ever seem to play with any conviction that they could win that game. Again, Golden State led game two from wire to wire. So now we get to game three and I am rooting for Houston. But if you made me bet on it. I would bet on Golden State because I'm not going to bet against that seven foot monster who plays for Golden State named Kevin Durant once upon a time played with James harden in the biggest question for this game is James who are you? What you got? Because now this is it this is do or die. Basically. I know you could come back, but they're not they're not coming back with Kevin Durant on the team not going to happen. So you have to win this game. And again, Houston beat them three out of four times. But the four-time was at Houston with no Kevin Durant and what happened to James in that game. Well, you should rise and shine you should take it over if you're that guy and he shot two for twelve from three. And as a team they made twenty seven percent of their threes. Eleven of forty one not good. Enough. If you do that tonight, you're going to lose. Yes. And I have never seen. Kevin Durant play at a higher level. And where he's been at his all time greatest is in game threes. What did we see twenty seventeen game three finals twenty eighteen game three finals? What are you do in those two? Well, he simply went from thirty one to forty three in those two games in LeBron's house. What do we see the clippers on the road game three and four? He went thirty eight thirty three then game six the closeout game. Fifty. He's just he is a team record on the road. He just goes into Rex you're building. He shuts down your crowd takes your crowd out of it. And I'm I'm fearing for Houston sake. You're about to see that happen again. If I'm I don't know what he's doing the game one. You yourself. You building about we gotta do something different. Is that what you normally do treat him sane?

They don't they're not a national topic. For a lot of shows. I love watching them play. They got dysfunction they got baby shack. They got butlers ego.

Somebody asked me just earlier today. Who would be my pick for the finals? You know, just the most exciting fine. Yeah. The most fun, and I said Golden State in Philadelphia. No fun.

"Plus or more wins? By double digits, all of them won the title. Like if we were not living in a Kevin Durant, Steph curry Klay Thompson era. We would say Milwaukee is not as heavy favorites. Come out of the east Debbie favorites to win the title. Which is why I think yesterday when we talked about the Celtics series at a lot of people took my commentary as oh Knicks hate on the Celtics again, it is less to do with Boston and more to do with the team that they're facing that. I think is something of a juggernaut. We just don't know it because this is the first year to your point they've even want a single playoff series. Yes. Much less advanced very deep into the play. Okay. So we all agree that you can't stop yon defense can Brad Stevens put together to at least slow him down. And keep them in these games, though. The problem is they shoot three pointers. So well, there is no team that is sync offense and defensively shoot. Two three will defend three. Will if John is draws a double team they have four shooters own the court. Almost every at all points and brook Lopez. I totally disagree with Mannix who said here yesterday in Nick been watching brook Lopez man his game is special. We were kind of puzzling. Why didn't the Lakers for only three million dollars? And he's just changed his game. If people see when you say, you're puzzled by Mannix Mannix, yesterday said he thought brook Lopez could be played off the court in this series, Boston. He would be a liability. Exactly. And Nick, and I don't agree with that. Because he's had a special season sixty five percent of his attempts at the field or beyond the three point line. That's his career was totally different before that. So now, he is a great shooter at the three point line, and you can bring him off. So now Jaanus has plenty of space Bledsoe is playing the most consistent basketball of his career. And I gotta tell you surprisingly George hill who disappeared with the Cavs has played in spot duty has played some good basketball for the book. Who guards Jaanus if you look at the team who do you have on you? I mean, listen they'll start with. It'll be the same thing. Boston tried to do last year with LeBron which is throw a bunch of bodies at him, and they will fail Marcus Morris will try Jalen Brown. We'll dry, but he is not big enough shimmy, Osceola, we'll get some minutes because he shows strong. But he is not Tolan of Jason Tatum. We'll get some minutes. But he is not thick enough. There is nobody this is why when you say how does Boston slowdown Milwaukee of Boston is going to make this a series. They're going to have to do it through putting together two of their best. Offenses weeks of basketball. We've seen all year kyri is going to have to be twenty five plus points and night. Tatum's going to have to duplicate what he didn't around one where he was extrordinary. Gordon? Hayward is going to be the Gordon Hayward. We saw momentarily in the fourth quarter of game four throughout the series. Like the Gordon Hayward every month of the season this year average ten or eleven points. They need him to average eighteen or nineteen points. If they're gonna find enough offense because you are not holding Milwaukee under ninety five points more than maybe once in this series, Jimin, you can go up and down. And I challenge anyone is going to be eight teams in the second round go up and down the roster, and you see who who can guard on you can ask for anyone. I don't care who they play teams in the east teams in the west. And that includes the rockets and Golden State will you mean, Kevin, no, this is a mismatch waiting to happen. Every series this series the finals in the east if they make it to the come to the to the NBA finals in no matter who they are going against there is no one MBA that can match up against Janas witness. If you're going to slow Janas down, the what you need more than a great perimeter defender. What you would need is a great rim-protector because Yanna so much of his work at the rim..

"You've got to play the long game. You're not gonna when I saw him in game for knocked down three. And he's going while I'm thinking, you have to know better at this point. These are the play offs. You're not winning a playoff game in the second quarter. I don't care how big that shot is you've got to be able to sustain that energy and think the game there's playing hard. And then there's playing smart, we've never doubted the Russell Westbrook plays hard. But everybody in the play offs plays hard you play hard during the regular season. You're going to beat a lot of teams. Everybody plays hard in the postseason. Now. It's a matter of who's gonna play the smartest and Russell Westbrook. I hate to say it is losing in that game right now. I can think of one guy that I would compare Russell Westbrook to Cam Newton. It's not in bass wa was he Cam Newton a quarterback for the small market team. MVP of the Lee carried his team. Into a Super Bowl didn't win it in a small market where you have all kinds of control they need you more than you need them. That's the situation Westbrook is in and with. With Cam Newton when the ownership Jerry Richardson and Ron Rivera were working in concert and helping shepherd Cam Newton along, and that's what I don't see an okay, see, I don't see ownership working with Billy Donovan trying to shepherd this guy a healthier direction. It's one of those tricky things where you need to have a coach that rust believes has the answers for him. I had to tell me the other day said if I go if I had Russ I would tell him the first forty minutes or years, the last eight minutes minutes or mine, if I'm the coach which means go out and do your thing for forty minutes. But when we get to the final eight minutes, it's going to be my plan, and we're gonna utilize all this. And I just don't see that to the very end Russ every time he gets the ball. It looks to me like he's figuring it out as he goes along as opposed to a grand master plan to this. You know, I mean, we could take it from the psycho therapy and just take it back. On the court, and we may be over thinking. Let's just be real the game is past Russell Westbrook by right now, we're seeing him respond to that he can't shoot in a shooters league. If you think about us his post K D, what's happened is affected. Phil go percents has gone down. His three thro- percents is going down. And it's three point shooter has going down to twenty nine percent there. Seven footers walking around right now in the NBA shooting better than Russell Westbrook right now. So what comes from that too nasty and just Wiley Coyote going out there trying to make this all happened because he knows he can't do what other point guards can do which is a threat on a perimeter thing is is I look at his form..

"That's a gift that's talent. That's an ability. I'm beginning to wonder whether Russell Westbrook actually has that ability to marry those two because now when he's you saw it in game four he was on selfish down the stretch. He was getting everybody else. I'm not hitting shots. I'm going to get everybody else involved. You can't stop on that team. You can't stop being Russell Westbrook. You just gotta find a way to combine it with the talent around you. We saw Damian Lillard do that. Damian Lillard doesn't it's not all score. Or I set everybody up. It's a blend of the two. That's what makes them so effective. Russell Westbrook is not showing me that he's capable of doing the two at the same time. I go to what I'd said a couple of weeks ago playing with anger and not anger rage rate because it's over the top not a mad. Yes. And so I make bad decisions when I'm angry really bad decision. I think most people do it's the wrong emotion for a point guard. And I again, I think he's going to have to have a total personality makeover, which we've seen Tiger Woods. Get counseling for whatever. His issues were Russell Westbrook to me need some counseling about handling his emotions because his lack of control. His motions is making him make poor basketball decisions and look for conflict, virtually everywhere. Yeah. Interesting. Rick was talking about the extremes and not the blend the new wants part of the game that he's not excelling that. And we saw about rage anger. I'll say intensity of that intensity. Works in normal circumstances. We have callous examples of guys where you wanna go Clayton Kershaw and other sports or Peyton Manning. You wanna stay Russell Westbrook where normal moments. They excel. And then when they're intense moments, and then you map that onto that intensity combustion like you just don't know how to see things clearly and as nuance as you need to in those moments if you have baseball if you're talking about a pitcher, he pitches every five days, he can go out there every fifth day and and play with certain rage. If you're in football, you're only playing on one side of the ball. And even that it's not every snap basketball. You're out there almost all the time..

"Those questions should be there because they're that kind of talented basketball team. But how he handled free agency brought a lot of that traffic. That's where the, and that's that's where he's gotten this wrong. We don't talk about every pending agent like this, and you can say, oh, well, it's just because I'm this great, man. Lebron last year damn near one league MVP. We we weren't talking about his pending free agency like this. He wasn't. He wasn't in some Malays because he was because he shut it all down. Kevin durant? The first time when he was in. Okay. So everyone knew as a pending free agent. It didn't cause this type of daily controversy or talking point because he was not engaging in it. Kevin durant? And this is where my biggest criticism of him comes. He's got to be. He's gotta take ownership for how much of this is his own doing. Nobody told Kevin Durant starting a few years ago to do a multi. Part multi-hour podcast series with Bill Simmons where he lays it all bare known told Kevin Durant to do these multi part multi our podcast with Chris aims to do things where he is constantly talking to us about his feelings about his plans about his emotions. If you were going to talk to us about those things we are interested in them, and the the fans are interested in and then on these shows, we will discuss what is interesting, quite Leonard does not get the money that Kevin Durant gets off the court, right because he's not talked about he's made that choice to not be interesting. There's a good and a bad side. And there's another part that they let the family business out agenda. If I was to leave this show put he's think to be the first one to know. Hopefully, me neck, absolutely. When Draymond one. One. Didn't know what the right ask. You may Jinnah panic. Because there's a number of things the warriors they're going to draw some traffic K D because who he is he's going to draw Warner some attention. But when Draymond said that we can't forget that dreamers told him you can leave. Now, we didn't make this kind of stuff up so regardless even if we weren't questioned the warriors in their championship run. We weren't cast questioned free agency. What Hillman dre did that exchange? Right. There would lead us to where we are. Anyway. And the crazy thing is I had a conversation. I sat in between those two guys in a locker in in Brooklyn like a week before that and having just a great basketball life conversation with the both of them. You would have never known that that would have happened week later. I've never had anything but positive interactions with Kevin from a media standpoint. But I also don't have to deal with him every day to that point. I'll say this out of all the things I've had to write some non flattering stories about guys throughout my career. Come to me upset look you can be upset about what our wrote or you can be happy about what I know. But I didn't write me. Glad we're only talking about your professional decisions on the floor and sort of the residuals off the floor. Yeah. This is not personal. This is nowhere near personal. And this is a person. I'm a person who said him going to Golden State was great thing for basketball because we get to see him play in perfect system compared to being an Oklahoma City where he was shocked and sort of playing Russ all I think this was a great thing for him. Great thing for basketball, regardless of what he does next. So I don't think he should look at this as a negative even if he goes, you're looking and you wrote that right around the time you and I were getting to know each other. And it's still your worst basketball opinion yet. However, one one last note there are two guys to this this guy who says the Bosnian great. All right. Let's do that right now. I've I took a shot that's fair. This is there are two pending for agents that we dissect cuyrrying, Katie Katie had the instant with drain on that you talked about, you know, what did kyri is the one who went at the TD garden is that what it's called in Boston on the court before the season said man, all happy to be here for the rest of my group..

"But I just think Milwaukee is just that much better dish, I'm taking the books as will look the Celtics will Orlando Orlando, Indiana. But without all the depot in Indiana could have easily won to those last eight skill. I mean, they're closed ahead bug. Donald trying to close for where the Celtics had carry them in. That was really the difference in the ballgame. As you mentioned, Chris that you don't think the Celtics has gotten better from what they were last year will Jaanus head and shoulders above where he was last year. He's he's a different. And before was like James harden should be the VP. If Janas wins the MVP skip. I'm not going to be nearly as mad upset as I would have been say two months ago what I've seen from. I'm in the playoffs because that's what I wanted to see. Yeah. We he had he had a monster season. Twenty six twelve to twenty seven twelve in five. But were you gonna do in the playoffs? He's as Bill he stepped up. Yeah. He was you want to be that guy regular, that's fine. But legends are cultivated and made compla- of time.

He angled get a whole bunch of rebounds skill but he'll down some threes. Protect protect the rim and everything I did not see this. I know us at the beginning of the Milwaukee, Milwaukee Milwaukee, I didn't see him being this good. I thought that you know, win fifty fifty three games. They sixty game fifty sixty games. I didn't see him being this good skip their they might be better than everybody thought. They would you people like Milwaukee going to be good. He's around, you know, booting holders. Very good coat. They surrounded. They got a guy that can play out of the paint can pass it open shooters. And because he they got no answer for him. Jaylen Brown Jason Tatum. Whomever smiles.

"Over five or six times for game. You're not winning with that. And Kevin Durant. Tried to tell y'all say look y'all can call me what? Ever cabinet would have rather taken aback lashing the criticism for joining Golden State team. Then the stay there and try and figure out how can I win a title with this guy? Agree in where I part ways with Chris Broussard is. His legacy took a hit from me last night. And I can only speak for me in became a Russell Westbrook fan when Kevin basically left him high and dry in. Okay. See in I predicted going into that year. He's going to average a triple double. But I was looking at it as more of a solo act of defiance against the loss of Kevin Durant, and he pulled it off. But I can no longer defend three straight first round exits. What looks like it's going to be a four and twelve postseason record post K D. And to me last night was a legacy game for Russell Westbrook at home. And I really thought he would win it because he would just will it. He would just figure out some way to pull it off as he did game three on. What was it Friday night in? I think he shot the biggest hole yet in his legacy last night because really hit bottom in what bothered me the most was to thirty one left in the first half. Russell westbrook. Finally drains a deep three right Damian's fates. And if we could see that what does he do from that moment forward? South the court beating his chest screaming God knows what here it is. He's screaming to everybody. I think he's saying it's my house. I don't know what he's saying got. I don't know if we could repeat what he's saying. But but he's he looks like he just made the shot that one game seven of the finals. Right. And we know he's fuelled by emotion in its rawal rage in nobody plays harder every possession every single loose ball. We get all that. But it sometime at some point. You have to grow up and say, we got a lot of basketball left to play year, and these guys were up against shoot it. Right. So what happened from that moment forward in this basketball game eleven not happened because that was the Portland run up to half time and in that Levin. Nothing run. Russell Westbrook missed three shots and turn the ball over one. That's in the last two thirty one of that half. After that display. You just saw and then in the second half. Russell Westbrook scored a grand total love one point scored one. And second half. And meanwhile, Damian scores fifteen in the third quarter and CJ scores thirteen in the fourth quarter because they can just flat out shoot it and Russell shot himself in the foot and his team in all their feet because you live and die with him shooting. And he just shooting in the series now shot thirty six percent from the field twenty nine of eighty in from the three point line. He's thirty percent in this these four games. Well, that's that's horrendous. It's just hard. You can't win. You can't overcome that. Because he shoots high volume and high volume MRs and it won't work because it's funny. Most great players get better at a skill over time. And he's getting worse as the shooter. Right. He's getting worse from the free throw line. He's made us free throws in the series. But he shot sixty six percent. So so to me. Especially in Oklahoma City. He's going to lose a little clout a little cachet a little bit of the past. He gets for the way he treats berry Trammell in the media, especially in Oklahoma City that it looks immature. And I don't know what I mean from what the stories I read trampled. Just ask them like a random regular for years. Right. Like, do you know, Barry, I know him. Yeah. Yeah. Just. Yeah. From you know, coming around the league. But it's that's that's what's really like again. I've made peace with who. Russell Westbrook is as a player tried to talk to him or. Yeah. We we've not never had any problems..

"And then of course, you know, my God given talent just kicked in all just came. It just all came together. And you know, from this Crispell Russell, Westbrook Daimler. Jamal Crawford that you taught how old action me about it all the time. You know to you know, like, I grew up with curry father stuff like that. So this is all been a part of it. And like, you know, when I meet them all like, hey, man. So much feel more you dribbling and stuff like that. And then when I'm around them, I just show them like different versions of it. Finally, Chris Broussard joins Nick and see C to breakdown Kevin Durant's offseason options. Why would Kevin Durant stay in Golden State? What's the case for him stain where he made the argument on this show before that I think it'd be great for him to stay and go for four straight ring. Yes. Oughta guys magic MJ LeBron Kobe shack all these compared to have never won four straight. Only Bill Russell. And so he had that on his resume. I mean, that'd be huge. But watching this season unfold, we're how difficult their struggles. They're having this year. He drained mine going at it the tension there is with the team. There's a reason those guys didn't win for straight because his very difficult mentally emotionally not to mention physically. So it appears that that would be. Not quite unrealistic. But very difficult if they win it this year for them to come back and do it a four straight year. It just might be too tough. And look he's got two great options in my opinion, New York and the clippers outside of Golden State. So I as much as I'd like to see him get four straight. I don't think he why do you think he is? I know we've talked a lot about Kyrie's levels of happiness, and is inter but I thought the other night win. He was after they got blown out by the Celtics him. I don't wanna say going at Steve Kerr, but his post game press conference juxtaposed to Steph Curry's, we're Steph curry kept the even kill you said, he's the Tim Duncan for us. One of you said. Tim Duncan for the Golden State Warriors and Cur- Cur- predates during and Kerr's incredibly popular within that locker room and Durant just seems generally irritated with the situation. I thought he had a legitimate reason after the game what he questioned was Steve Kerr talked about. Now, we need to play. We need to be a little more mean a little more intense before and during the season and angry and earlier in the season. They were talking about man, let's play with a little more joy. Let's be happy. So that's that was the message point. That's monster. Really? Well, it was a joy. And then he contradicted. Yeah. But now because we lose this game. Don't go behind the team because he should've told the team that after the game before he told the media that like you can't change your messaging point to the media before you talk to the team because you have to be consistent. And he said, oh, he said that oh I thought he was talking about play with some joy. So that's that's what he should be able to do. He has the right to Bill to do that. Because Steve Kerr changed a message. Point that we had. And then he went on to be like, no, it's about playing with some more joy. So I I don't have a problem with that. I think people miscalculate the amount of stress that NBA players. I'm gonna say stress because dealing with the media. I'm part of the media now, but we have a system in Minnesota. And when you only have sixteen games and you only play one game a week. Right. And we only typically have to media appearances that we have to do we have one scheduled during the week. And we're definitely gonna talk after the game. But you talking about eighty two games. Now you talking about all these shoot around. Right, right. Many more opportunities. So I'm not making excuses for 'em BA players, but I'm looking at the schedule. I'm looking at how many sound bites. How many times people can get them tripped up, and I didn't like talking to the media because to me I got a job to do in catching the football going across the middle. Being in safe has none. Thing to do with the media..

Lebron was two for six from the line for turn out to go me. I just I gotta go to brands that were the problems. Lebron was a part of that said eighty percents for a case. You can probably make every free throw. I think mathematically you're like the next fifty in a row or whatever it is to get to eighty. I think it's over. I think what LeBron and he talks about the discount for being uncomfortable, comfortable being uncomfortable. Yes. I really think he is like a debate that last week. One. Okay. He grew up, you know, moving around all like, he's going be using. And I think when I was I was with him a lot when he was first in Cleveland, and it wasn't the was no finger-pointing for the most. It was harmonious. You saw him doing the little photos before our Monis, and he didn't have any other stars. But what it getting sixty something wins and out in the second or third around. He goes the Miami drama every year back to Cleveland drama every year, but we won three we got there to define those every year. I feel like LeBron thinks that's necessary for him to be uncomfortable as necessary and for him it may be. But that's not true for everybody xactly, and he creates that everywhere. He goes because probably because he feels Right. I. Next Chris Broussard breaks down his top five second half storylines in the NBA here. We are fresh off the all-star break and these are the five biggest storylines for the second half of the NBA season. Number five will Paul George continue to play at an MVP level and challenge, Janice and James harden for the MVP award. He's averaged thirty one points and eight rebounds over the last forty games tall Georgia's playing the best ball of his career by far. But I don't think he's going to challenge for the MVP award. I don't think okay. See is going to get to that first or second seed and in the last thirty three years only two players have won the MVP award without having the first or second best record in there conference. Michael Jordan in nineteen eighty eight and Russell Westbrook when the average a triple double. So we'll continue to watch George, but I don't think it's going to happen at number four Ziya Williamson sweepstakes or otherwise known as the. Nba draft lottery. I know technically it'll happen in the play offs not the regular season. But it's still going to be huge made fourteenth. You will not want to miss it. Remember new rules this year? So the three days with the worst records have the same chance of winning the lottery, that's Phoenix New York and Cleveland right now. And what if New York wins the lottery that means Zion? The most exciting prospect says LeBron James in two thousand three could end up in the Big Apple or maybe the Knicks trading and bring Anthony Davis to New York either way, a huge storyline at number three with the Boston Celtics fine harmony or continue being their own worst, enemy, kyri Irving..

So I know I'm gonna come on. Okay. Good. Okay. It was just too much me and them. And look there's a time to drop the hammer especially when you the best player in the world to leader. You got championships. There's a time to do that. But there's also a time to hug your teammates to encourage them to support them to let them know, you're with them. And I thought this was that time there were some things that baffled me. So the Brian talked about guys have been there. Do they know what they're missing out on you know, if they haven't been there. Well, who you talking about McGee javelin got to championship Tyson. Taylor has got one Rajon Rondo guy one up to four LeBron's got three in the rest of them have forced never been came at the expense of LeBron Rondos Chandler's McGee all of max. Yeah. Last has been deep in the playoffs. So he was talking about essentially Brandon Ingram. Nkala Kouzmin Ingram gave twenty nine points. Coups played. Okay. Did Reggie Bullock. Is he throwing him in there too? I don't know. It was just too much in coming off a game. Where look LeBron was spectacular offense. He threw some pocket passes. No, I give you that. He obviously gave us twenty seven. He was not in his usual attack me. And that's what about three. No, he had some thirty litters three threes in the third quarter and they lost third quarter by four points. Just for the record. Go ahead. He so he he missed four six free throws. And you said, and I was gonna bring this up later, but he wasn't in his usual, tag mo-. Lebron has always been I've even asked him privately. Why don't you just play point guard? He's never wanted to fully commit to a point guard. But yesterday, he was pretty much fully. I think part of the reason he doesn't wanna fully commit because he gets himself out of like score. Now, he's gonna get you twenty five. No matter what. Right. But he's not he only took seventeen shots only six zero. So he wasn't attacking. I don't think he knows that balance yet between being that point guard, but also scoring thirty five. What did you see in the first three games in the first finals against Golden State when there was no career? No, Kevin love, what did you see play essentially any played attack? Now, you only shot thirty some percent, which he hates to do. But he believes in efficiency, but you. I had no short. But I loved it, man. If he can find that that balance like Miami. I don't think when he played point guard. I think he was more distributor, but it was fine because we had weighed in Baljit right and yesterday, but that plays into the discomfort. I would say the Brian you be uncomfortable. And don't get me forty five. That's not he don't like to do there there. There you go. Right. He likes to give you twenty seven twelve ten whatever. Go beyond comfortable, we need to forty five more James hard. We need that. And then defensively that was their whole problem yesterday, and LeBron's been bad. It's just is what it is since I got this from Steve or researcher. Your guy. They were they were defensively when LeBron got hurt they were seventh defensively when he was out like even though he they were losing. They couldn't score a defensively. Great says he's been back there twenty fifth defensively. So I'm just saying this was not the time to separate yourself from your teammates. And that's what I didn't know you. Okay. I give you that. I'll write agree. You look at LeBron used the word like approach where you think the game where you with the game..

LA Lakers Sign Michael Beasley

"Let's get to it. The Lakers keep adding to their roster this off season. Multiple reports. The Lakers have agreed to a one year deal with Michael Beasley was a teammate of LeBron's in Miami Beasley was the number two overall pick in two thousand eight, but has had a history of drug issues during his career. Last year, he averaged about thirteen points per game with the Knicks and the Lakers already at it. Rajon Rondo land Stevenson and javale McGee this off season. We're joined by EVA's one NBA analyst. Chris. I'm gonna get this one starting with skip because I wanna know what you think. What is going on here just for the record, I've covered the NBA even longer than my main Chris Broussard. I started covering the NBA when I was at the LA times back in nineteen seventy seven, and I covered these Los Angeles Lakers. So I've been around for a little while and I've seen thing or to this team now sets up as the most difficult to coach team. I can ever remember. Maybe I'm forgetting one somewhere along the trail, but I don't think so because let me just count the ways. Michael Beasley love is game, loved him before his draft. He's been on seven teams and eleven years for reason. Rajon Rondo has been on six teams in the last five years for a reason land. Stevenson has been on seventeen in the last six years for a reason. Nj, all McGee has been on sixteen eleven years for various reasons. They're all in different ways, extremely difficult to coach from night tonight. They can be moody, they can be. Unpredictable. They can be a little knuckle headed in their own various ways. This is now the NBA's version of the expendable 's and I can't believe that LeBron James signed off on all four of them because I'm pretty sure magic had to take each one of these still LeBron say, you good, you good, you good. He's had history with all four in various ways playing for or against them or with an or against them. And it's like he now has the equivalent of four JR Smith on his team. Not that Rondos knuckle headed. He can just be difficult high basketball, I q Doc. Rivers finally said, I just can't coach him because he thinks he's the coach of my team thinks he knows more than I do. He was the driving force behind New Orleans rise last year into the plows past Portland in the first round. It was highly impressive. And then the pelicans said, no, no, no, we we're not going to go for with Rondo because he's difficult to coach. So all the sudden porn Luke Walton at age thirty eight is sitting. In the volatile mix that he's surrounded with with a lot of bench players who are going to want minutes and make waves of if they don't get their minutes and he's got a lavar ball, sort of hanging over his head from above and you never know which night lavar is just going to go off on Luke Walton and say, the team has quit on him or he should be fired or whatever. So if this team does get off to a little bit of a rocky, start, my Mandla Shannon Sharpe says, yes, it could get off to a rocky start. Everybody thinks that this is going to become a rough mix. You know where the fingers are going to get points early on. The thirty eight year old head coach down at the end of the bench, right? And again, LeBron is going to have to help him coach his team. If in fact, he signed off on these four guys, but I'm gonna remind you. There's been a long running theme in the league that I, I heard around the San Antonio Spurs back in Stephen Jackson days, and I love Stephen Jackson, but he was considered early on in his career despite all of his game and all of his intangibles in character that he did have basketball character. He was considered a knucklehead. He could do knucklehead things in..
