"Trudeau going gonna play a time. I get every dollar you got you know you're paying you're going to get you're going to maximize the five point nine million dollars and you know it might be your season but You know there's going to be an opportunity and they look at the medicine plated this in oklahoma city. I think it's gonna be be big. I think the know. Richardson kinda rebounds from the last two seasons. Maybe maybe play a big role as well. But i'm not bullish on that on based on early returns. But it's it's it's a little early to be making bold Determinations on on how that will play out. Know the one guy that i just felt all along. It's going to get squeezed. Peyton pressure i know. I know they need shooting but it trudeau gonna play a time and you've got smart and you wanna play big. You know i i just. I'm struggled when i when. I put my the minutes down to get beyond twelve fourteen minutes for for peyton pritchard. And that's a little bit unfair for a kid who comes in shot forty percent his rookie year but I think he's gonna have to show you can do something other than shoot Which is crazy on a team. That doesn't have a lot of shooting but You know the so you know. Maybe that will ultimately be the way backfires but this hot-cake that i don't know where the minnesota maybe one of the three i find shoot from logo You're all we got but Unless he can kind of figure out how to be able to be more of a playmaker unless you can really kinda dig in and be scrappy. defensively I'm struggling to figure out how how pain plays a whole bunch of minutes at seems right to me chris. I think there's just there's so much guard depth right now and so many experienced kind of battle-tested guards ahead of peyton that it's going to be tough for him to crack the rotation meaningful sense. But i also think in a weird way. That's a good thing for him I think that richard showed that he was a really quality shooter and did decent ball handler last year spots but his you're right in that his game does need to kind of branch out and in particular i think he really needs to show that he can keep up on the parameter with nba level scores on defense. If he can do that and. I think that this is an interesting challenge for him. I actually think it's worth reevaluating. His ceiling as a player because he does have some well-defined skills that are usable in an nba. Offense i think four those skills He's not gonna be out of the rotation completely. But i think in a way. This represents an interesting challenge for prichard to kind of push his to that next level and see if he can be a guy. It's like no you have to play. I do think that pritchard they do this. Issue had been kind of using him more than off ball woolen summer league so if that ends up being kind of more of his role in the coming season i can actually see him josh. Richardson really competing for time. Depending on who's actually being able to contribute to winning basketball really. And then i'll i'll forget home. Suppose really interested in his watchos start if only because.

"I'm actually. I'm looking forward to a few preseason losses. I think a couple of might be good for the squad. One thing good transition out of you you just use the word leadership and something that could happen tomorrow. That could happen. A few weeks ago really know. Is that boston might name. Not just one team captain to which is something that brad stevens was really against the back of my celtics hub days. It was every season you could write. Brad stevens should name a captain. Yeah so this might happen. So it's been teased that there will be two and at first i was like oh i know who the two are now. I have decided that. I definitely don't with the two arthur chris. Who do you if you the coach. Who would you name and either because you've heard whispers or because you have an inkling cudi think may be named the if i was ma. It would be jalen. And jason. I think there's a power to enabling your younger players in giving them that title I think i'm emboldened a little bit by that. Because marcus smart said i don't care after not I don't think horford particularly care if you don't understand the cases for both horford inspired And they that might ultimately be the way they tip. And i guess there's probably value naming the more veteran guys in the more vocal guys At least marcus. His case to be those those leaders. What's what i'm somewhat fearful of is like this. Roster is still very fluid and so if you get the midseason it. All of a sudden bradley beal becomes available. Sorry you traded him to to get him and you know that doesn't just it like just aesthetically that doesn't that doesn't look great you know. And but maybe they don't care like this is a team. That name rajon rondo catherine. Even though brad was totally against the detroit On slater so You know it. It's just the title. It's something that's supposed to inspire a little bit more leadership. I don't think that's a bad thing for them to have voices. But you know the more. I think about it. I you know when. I look at that list of captains in celtics history. You know part of the reason. That like the ricky davis or whatever gave us with their names on that list that jump out. Because i'm like how are they captain. You know like it's about the cousy and russell and pearson havlicek and all these guys that you're familiar with and then i don't know how i feel. Look back like they had six months. Where al horford captain on his second tenure at age thirty five so give it to jalen and jason and let them run calkins for the next ten years and You know..

"We obsessed over this with Robert Williams. So we may as well at least mention it with her and Gomez. He's 15 and 8 per 36. At least last year. Again, I don't know, you know, I don't necessarily say immediately. Like he's ahead of grant Williams and jabari Parker on the depth chart, but that was a position of need. And it was more of a need than Carson Edwards with crying to crack the rotation at the wing spot or Kris Dunn finding a role. And so those guys would get a chance. Like, I think Chris Duncan in the right situation could revitalize himself and I'm hopeful, you know, maybe he'll find that down there. You know, maybe Carson and just getting turned loose will figure it out and maybe we'll look back and say, oh, this all should have given him more minutes and all that. But, you know, I think this is a move. They get you to 15. Still don't know if that will be the 15 they carry in. I think now that I think, okay, grant and Gomez and jamari, like there could still be some wrinkling there, but if nothing else, they're positioned to enter the year with this roster. Looking to see if there's anything else woj has to add, you never know. So this deal can't be formally announced until September 15th done in Edwards contracts were allowed to be in the trade at that point. So, you know, it's looming, it's coming, but I swear. Like, normally we would have signed off ten minutes ago, and that's when we would have to and that happens. That's what it was funny because we were going to remark like that. Celtics talk was going to record a podcast today too, and that would have been the kiss of death because nothing has outdated myself quite like me recording a podcast. Same deal like it's just like we probably have the same record schedule where we're just like, let's get this done in the morning. Boom trade. Yeah. Always without fail. It's interesting. You know, I like that they're adding a guy who's, you know, kind of a young vet for lack of a better way of putting it. You know, Denver, Minnesota, again, just 25 years old around. Yeah, he's been around, but he's, you know, I mean, he's not terribly durable. You know, he's there have been some injuries there. You know, 1718, he only played 25 games. 2020 season, obviously, was shortened because of the pandemic to begin with, but he was with the both teams there last year, limited to 52 games. So we'll see. We'll see. But, I mean, you're still talking about a former, you know, just outside the lottery. It was a 15th overall pick a handful of years ago. Look, now I have something right. I'm thrilled. I guess I got to go to work. Apparently, all right, so that in mind, we're going to let you go here, but as you know, we were talking about back to school before and some are being over and the self in season being a month away..

"Like, it's going to be tough for this team to put up a hundred because there's just not a lot of other short fire scoring options out there, at least if, you know, especially if Jason and Jalen are getting the attention that they get. So, but Tatum in general, I think, you know, I'm going to go back. All these numbers blur together after the season, but, you know, I'm sure there's a number of the number of drives, number of free throw attempts. Like when he gets to the line, it's a different game. You know, he makes scoring 30 so easy when he gets the line 6 times the game. 8 times the game, whatever the number is. And then when he gets there like 15 times, you know, it's a whole game changer. So they got to be aggressive. I think there were times when Nash really, they're so talented. They can create their own shot from the perimeter, but it's just going to be more aggressive going to the basket. The great teams live at the line. Everyone hates watching the nets because Kyrie is there and hardens there and all that, you know, Durant's there. So if you want to hang with those teams, got to make some easy baskets for yourself. And whether that's easy layups or physical layups or getting to the line, they need to do it more often. On town on Tatum and brown, Chris, it's a story that doesn't go away and it's popular for sports talk radio for Talking Heads for doing what you do. It's been around obviously for a little while. Now it's the whole can Tatum and brown coexist. You know, and I mean, I think it's pretty apparent they can because we've seen it for a number of years at this point. They've both been successful. But you still have our friend Jeff Goodman who's been on both our shows plenty believes that, you know, these are two guys that are not the closest off the floor, not to say their enemies or anything, but they're not, you know, real Friends or they're not best Friends. They're not necessarily, you know, the dynamic you're looking for on the floor either, you know, sort of talking about their relationship or you know, Kevin Garnett, whose number is going to be retired in a matter of months saying that, you know, I think there were redundant to one another. Cedric Maxwell was on this podcast a couple of months or a couple of weeks ago and said that he would still advocate trading away jaylen Brown if you could get a car Anthony towns or something like that. Just have two different types of players..

"All right, folks, we are ready in other edition to Celtic speed, Adam Kaufman Chris forsberg good friend of the program good friend of mine, good friend of yours. You know, here's the thing, really. I don't think and this is a compliment. It's really the highest compliment Chris. I'm not sure I've ever come across anyone who's had a bad word to say about you. Oh. You know, so it's funny you say this. A couple of years ago, I was still a DSP and I had to do a story on Al Horford. And I was really struggling to come up with a story idea for it. And I'm talking to his agent and I'm like, you know, what's the story with that? What's the overarching theme that I'm missing here? And I'm like, you know what the thing is, no one's ever said anything bad about them. So I legitimately went to every person I could find in every team, and I said, tell me something bad about Al Horford and no one had anything. And then I went down and I said, hell, no one has ever said anything bad about you. He's like, well, there's some people out there. I was like, well, who? Well, I can't name about my head. I was like, no, because everyone likes you. It's sort of the same way. I won't name names. I'm sure there are people that hate me. And I'm sure I have unintentionally been a jerk to somebody, but I try not to. And I mean, just sort of the way, I hope I operate, but, you know, I guarantee there's people out there that don't like me. See, there are enough people out there to think I'm a jerk that they'll tell me right to my face, which I appreciate at least because you don't have to like, you don't have to wonder, you don't have to guess. They can just come into my Twitter match. You know, Twitter is a great place to check your check your confidence meter and check for you go..

I've had such games as oh Twenty One fifteen, twenty one, twenty and nine. I've had another game 13 to 19 and 9 I'll give you a hint. I am a second-generation NBA player, sabonis sabonis, who honest bonus is having to pack. It is spectacular model in my career. I don't I took note of this Saturday this in seven games in May he's averaging twenty five fifteen eleven and fifty-eight percent is awesome and another plan potential. That's right, that's right. And he was coming off injury, right? Yeah. Yeah. He missed, he missed a lot of time. He missed a lot of time. That that's a team. It honestly, you can see if somehow there is a brad, Stevens component to this Pritchard. Indiana should be talking a lot in the offseason, they really should, they should get together with. I don't know where they want to meet, maybe they can take in a Red Sox game or something on a nice day and, and just talk for a while and see what comes of it. All right, I just want to get that one in there. I just it's a good fast. That is a good set. It is a good stack, Chris. We appreciate you joining us. Keep doing what you're doing. Honestly, so much fun to watch you. Now, getting rep upon rep, upon rep. I'm almost there. I'm almost tired. I think your wife is probably tired of seeing you on T, but one other now you're honestly, I mean, like, that's terrific job. I'm glad everything is worked out so well for you and hopefully you get a, you know, interesting offseason. It'll start a little bit earlier than you thought. I think will be interesting as the right way. Thank you. All right, sorry Chris, Chris forsberg. NBC Sports. Boston.

"They've got Robert Williams there in the late teens and, you know, go way back to Avery Bradley and stuffing. It's all such a Dodge Dart throw. I agree. I don't think like, I am to buy a lot of the the plan tournament early just because they can go from say 16 to 13 with the flat. You know what it means, it means little at that point. You don't know who's going to cross the border to be. They missed out on Hero 2 years ago. That was a tough one when they had Langford one spot behind hear of that hurt him. But generally, I don't know how much of a difference phone number. From thirteen to sixteen now. And so I know, I know it's hard to get excited about what's ahead, but I am like I was a little bit curious. Going into that second, Miami game. Okay, Jalen's done. You know that this team doesn't have that burden of expectations anymore. There's no sense complaining about the injuries anymore, would they play looser? And Freer, and for the first half of that game, I was like, ooh, you know, maybe they just going to try to play fast and do crazy things and, and Juice, see what happens. Then, the second half came around and they just forgot how to play defense again. And so I don't have great expectations but, you know, I don't have great expectations that they can ratchet it up in a big game that matters. They took the last two games but you know, they could they could they could draw a Nets team and at least push them a little bit, but I don't think they're I just don't think they're getting out of that person. That do we even want to see them against the net? Kyrie Kyrie getting a victory. So yeah, I don't know. Like you avoid getting knocked out by Gordon Hayward and and the former Celtics all stars, but then you have to go watch Kyrie's, get some more birth. On a potential. Yeah, it's there's no way these playoffs play out. Well, unless some real crazy magic happens, just a matter of degrees of what negative circumstance, it's going to be a negative circumstance, just a matter of the grease help it. We're not going to enjoy it. I don't do you want to leave lose in a play-in game though but but boy did you know you might Jeff on Thursday to see Kyrie struttin he could wipe the floor with them like if they get hardened back which it sounds like he'll be back by then, at least I'm saying that you really ought to I mean they'll be overmatched again. I mean, listen campus, playing great right now and I do love the. I wish the 48 thing that happened earlier and they had gotten a full year off. Yeah. With with all four of these dudes, and Robert Williams, Like I'm there and and I do go there of like thinking the what if game of course, but I also in like a realist of, you.

"This is the bar Brian and Jeff Goodman podcast, NBA some college little bit of everything. You know, what can I say? But it wasn't going to happen here with him. I was wrong with it because it wasn't about talent. I didn't think. All right, let's get right to. It are welcomed into another episode of the Iran and Goodman podcast. I'm Jeff Goodman. He is Bob Ryan and we are joined by one of my favorite people. In this business. One of the best people in this business and that is NBC Sports has Chris forsberg. Who's done a great job here in Boston covering a Celtics for years? Hold on, hold on. Can I can I can I start this off? Like the only reason I'm in this chair is because of the man who's down here on my zoom bubble cuz I used to go harass Bob Ryan after birth. Celtics games while I was at the Boston Globe and I'd be like, Bob. I know it's 1 a.m., I know, we have just finished putting the finishing touches on your latest article but I need you to come talk to this camera for five minutes and I always oblige. I had literally I have an Emmy Award on my wall because I made him talk about Gino on the Jumbotron on one night at like 3 in the morning and he gave this great Soliloquy about the history Gino and why it a table just saying. So I am honored to be on here. I feel a little bit over overmatched with the quality of talent that is already on this podcast. I've been overmatched, I've been over a month or two years doing this podcast. So get used to it. Very nicely to say that you know will come up in my conversation over the weekend. When I go to the Hall of Fame, enshrinement becomes a net is being deducted and no one enjoyed Gino, no one no one in the stands. Enjoyed those moments more than Kevin Garnett dead. When they put that video up, whatever any coach was saying was utterly irrelevant to Kevin Garnett, you know, the game was over anyway, but point is he just loved it anyway? So I think about it off, anyway, thank you. Good to be with you question. I'm wearing this hat in honor of Jaylen brown right now, in fact, we've lost Jaylen Brown for the playoffs and and how big of an impact of that is to the Celtics. I'll throw it to both of you guys, for me. It's big, but there were five hundred team with Jaylin. There were five hundred Team without Jaylen. I don't think they were going anywhere either way, but now it's just like, all right. Is there any Intrigue into this postseason? Other than the fact, the Intrigue really is? Do they get knocked out in the play in tournament? Not to the Intrigue now, dead. Amazing, that that's where we're we've come to with this team. But I think with Jaylin, I think what's telling to me is that this is the same engineer that Romeo Langford had last year in the bubble and it took him five and half months to recover, 170 days. And if you do the math, if your ailing gets surgery this week, he'll be back on October 28th..

"So the patients that some of you have shown us team should be commended. I'll tell you that Adam you and I have been frustrated the point of saying I hate watching this team and that at certain points definitely rang true for me, but now fifteen has become healthy, they've gotten you know, they they went out and got fornia, which can't be ignored. They got Cornett was giving them some minutes which has been great The Evolution of Robin Williams all these things come together now and as they get ready to turn the page to the playoffs the one thing you got to do the two things you got to do keep this particular level of play up and just stay healthy. Do those two things. You gotta feel confident cuz not many teams that you're going to play in. The playoffs are going to have four scores like Boston dots, you know, they're not going to page. With the exception of Brooklyn and I would say Philadelphia because Joe and be basically counts for two people this point. He's been so good not many teams going to have four guys that can handle the ball and score twenty points per game. And that's what we get back to Granny's point about that was the third best-selling seen the past twenty years and that was the best basketball any Brad Stevens teams played in his tenure wired where they like that cuz life for guys are just for the basketball simple as that and you make the case. I mean you just argued for kembo, but can you make the case that Evan Fournier might be not the most important birth Celtics. That's not what I'm saying, but the Biggest X-Factor in terms of determining their ceiling even more so than Kemba Walker just because of of what he should hopefully if you know if he delivers what he is, you know, we've seen flashes of for a couple of games anyway before obviously the coping situation and just what he was in Orlando and what what everyone hopes and expects him to be and especially coming off the bench as opposed to being in that starting unit is giving you some of what you didn't have last night in Los Angeles. Could you argue that 48 is actually the bigger X Factor to determine this team ceiling than even Kemba You know argue that I think because he's kind of insurance right if Kemba doesn't have a great game. Well, here's forty who averages, you know, twenty a game to help pick up that slack. I just think if you don't have the four scores versus the three, you're you're in a completely different category now again, I think you can win the NBA title know what they're going to do the Eastern Conference Finals. I'll give you a maybe on that page and that I wouldn't have even entertained this little as three weeks ago, but don't even say no but I'd love to be wrong..

There's like no, I'm going to play My Flag even further in this particular take like I know people are driving crazy ass well, and it's also in this is a much longer conversation. We don't have time for but I can only imagine how it how it impacts. You mentally as someone who's still more of a journalist than talking head and and reporter and obviously it's not broken news in the past and all that. Like there's just no accountability in the industry anymore with social media like you get something wrong you get something wrong who cares like nobody remembers it, you know, there was a point in time however, many years ago where that would have dead. Destroyed someone's credibility completely, you know, if you floated out a potential trade rumor and it didn't happen now, it's just like just yeah yesterday's news five times a day off see a report and I sank.

"Maybe you can because we got online gives you the opportunity to create things and maybe you could wager on this. I'm going to ask you to fictionally wager on this Evan and I were talking about this right before the show off Gordon Hayward is of course the big Domino we've talked about that throughout but much like a few years back with Kyrie Irving when no one knew he was going to come available in this shortened off-season. If everything stays on the schedule, we've already outlined and knowing that and even put it this way earlier. I think it was a great way to look at it. This this is very much a fixed roster as it looks on paper right now, especially in terms of the salary cap. You got your high-paid guys wage. Your low-paid guys, there isn't really anybody in the middle anymore with the way this roster looks other than Marcus Marcus Smart, but I don't think you look to trade him. You know, Danny loves him Brad Loves Me Oh hashtag winning plays a lot of us don't want to see him go. Yes, is it theoretically possible? He's not Untouchable. I think if anything you have two guys that Danny would be immensely reluctantly you move if not right out, right, you know unwilling and those are Tatum and brown after that. Give me your best offer. So my question for you is this is there a trade to be made that does not involved in Hayward that could shake up this offseason that were not even considering unfortunately it be on the lower scale. Like I think on draft night, you'll see them maybe dangle some of their unused cash from this past season for someone to take Vincent Poirier off their hands because you don't need to pay two and a half million dollars for a v Center. I'm sure to see what happens with with enes Kanter because birth You know, he's going to five million dollar auction and that's not a prohibited number for as much as he played last season and he was you know a nice luxury in the playoffs going up against indeed and holding up pretty well, but perhaps if you are going to go young at that position and find out what you got with Grant and Robin Williams, then you know, even if you Ops in I think there's a chance they can move him. And so then you start thinking about bundling a long bed and could you bundle Canter and some you know, the Lesser guys like Javonte unfortunately, you know again, it's just a crunch on roster space and some of these non-guaranteed guys, you know, even if they're lucky enough to get through sort of the the first part if they're dealt, you know could be trade assets as well. Now when every trade or Not Guaranteed got now their salary goes guarantee. It's not like the old days when themselves were brilliant with side of the Keith bogans of the world and dealing them for for more parts. But so I could see them trying to get up into like a mid level of salary and turning Catherine's spare parts into something else..

"Intriguing situation, but birth They do one of the few teams out there that have money and so I just think court is weighing. You know, what what where he goes from here what he can do. And so if he at least has bought the Hawks sitting there saying we will pay to get a veteran then it puts the onus on the Celtics either come to the table with a extension that maybe they're not really thrilled about having to do or or like a trade value isn't quite where they want to go, but maybe they have to go there or maybe go, you know there I will relent there is a scenario where gorgeous just snake-bitten, you know, like needs a fresh start. I don't think he's now the fourth option comes in too much into it. I just think there's something to the idea that and I keep saying this but Gordon Hayward signed here, he was the biggest free-agent signing and Celtics history and like two weeks later. They would trade for Kyrie Irving in court. Hey was on press conference. He's not the superstar in the focus and now two years, you know, three years later you've got with because of Jayson Tatum development in Jaylen Brown's development, you know, there's the birth The option that he is the fourth option and one that can't stay healthy. And so again, I think that just comes into your mind. Like how do I re-establish myself? And can I do it here, you know in my mind, I think you can and I don't think of a player that it's like you need to go back to averaging twenty five and twelve and you know, being the being the go-to-guy I think winning is important to him when he came here. He mentioned how there was unfinished business with Brad Stevens from Butler take care of business and sort of just like showing Boston the player he can be and then if he's willing to ride this out like next year could be a huge Payday for him because all the teams that are hoping to get Yiannis and Kauai and LeBron James chance of just like the leftovers are guys like Warren Hayward who could get one more big final pay day. And so I think this is more just comes down to options and we're all trying to just kind of dissect it a little bit maybe more than than it needs to be but certainly it's the biggest story of the offseason but the inference from ryen Russillo was that if you know all things created equal monetarily, right if he can find a deal that offsets what he would be losing money. Boston would that player option? And you know, it's a a reasonable fit that he does want out. Do you believe that or do you believe that he wants to come back? I think he is in a position where a player has to weigh every option and because he's not rushing out to say I want to be in Boston. We're left to infer a little bit about what he's thinking but I think that's really well here. I think there was a lot of questions coming into last year about how the three Wings situation would work..

"And fellas, I don't know how you could listen to me talk through what I just did and not feel like you need one of your own home. I just want to I need it. Yeah, I need it. I'm laughing about it, but I'm laughing cuz I know you're right like it's going to take you to a magical place when you use it. I'm telling you. I will tell you use if you're if you're a regular if you're an athlete Jumpoline like Jayson Tatum lawyer, just me, you know moving DVDs. I might DVD shelf behind me. Like I say my my shoulders been softened golf. I mean, I may need to get one of them. Now. I'm telling you, you know bring up spouses in in part for a reason because as you know, we we are all attached Viet married or girlfriends and you know, so many of these athletes are and we know that they are and I promise I'm going south with us. We know that they are as significant a part of our Lives as anything else when it comes to making important decisions ryen Russillo said that Gordon Hayward wants out of Boston now, I don't know if God True. I have no idea. I've never asked Gordon that question. But what I do wonder is what comes into play with that right? Is it? Hey, I've been injury-prone for three years. I could use a change of scenery cuz obviously like it's not to get away from his teammates not to get it's not to get away from Brad Stevens who you know, he came here largely because of now, it could be because I don't want to be the, you know, fourth or fifth option in a a fence. I want to go somewhere else where I can be the guy again. Hopefully be healthy and maybe just view my Boston experience as you know, chalk it up to. I don't know lock at the Irish is one thing and I had the Bad Luck of the Irish. I was always hurting my time there but to Circle back, I don't know how happy Robin is here based on the way that some fans go at her on social media. I don't know if she's sensitive to that. You mean the people that were asking if she would if she would move the birth of her child so that Gordon Hayward could go back and we just want him in the finals Robin could that run people somewhere? Yeah, so but but like this has gone on for a few years where she has like people have gone after on Instagram on Twitter it it seems like and this is not me like reporting anything. This is just like reading the Tea Leaves of social media seems like Al Horford sister not a huge fan, you know, I don't know exactly what kind of reputation actually think she likes Boston now cuz they know so bad about Philadelphia and arise Archives of disease and she's she's a wife or no question about I didn't say Anna doesn't like the Celtics game I can't is not a huge fan of Robyn Hayward and I don't that's that might be true that might help sure. That's what I'm saying. So I do to you know, I don't know like I wouldn't even pretend to know this isn't me like starting anything else? I don't know what like you start until just say here's my point. Like if my wife were like let's let's pretend I were you'd like as famous as Gordon Hayward writer as successful or as or you know, had the bank account and all that. Like I was in that kind of position and I could choose to go make millions of dollars somewhere else, but I'm currently in a situation where you know, my wife doesn't necessarily feel as part of the team and she's got these social media haters and all that stuff like she could play a real impact and saying you know what honey? I think we should.

"We were just with you on Sunday right back on a Thursday. We don't have a president yet and we don't need everyone's going to do so, there's just so much uncertainty here in the world. Welcome in Adam Kaufman, you know, Evan Valenti are always producers sometimes host. And of course Chris forsberg who we don't have all that often off. Because we don't like him we happen to love. Um, we just feel he's already got multiple podcast that he does over at NBC Sports Boston the guys probably tired of talking. How are you you've already told me like I'm over exposed and that hurt that hurt my feelings. I was like man, I used to be the go-to guy. I was like and I was laying low and now like no one calls anymore. I'm just hanging out in the base where my dog so, you know, like anytime I'm here registry me a shout anyone that's watching by the way versus listening the basement looks great. Great. Yeah looks like you're it's weird talking about here lately real definitely. Yeah that hoop next to them to overthrow right shoulder. It's it's it's it is actually regulation. It is just speculation. No funny story but nothing too much more chance, but when I was first planning this out, I wanted a basketball-themed back of people can't see if there's a box in front of me and maybe my mini-fridge next thing with loaded with drinks or soda and uses sure, you know, but for the for the hoop, I was going to take an old basketball hoop wage. Where the full-sized rim and put it up and then I actually went outside and grabbed an old hoop and realized like you forget how big a basketball hoop is like it would take up an enormous amount of this wall. And so we we we got the mini hoop and shouts to Amazon. I think I found it on there. Yeah looks pretty good. My kids would enjoy we still got the I mean, what is it like Little Tikes? Is that the brand maybe the took like five foot hope that fortunately my gas. You know that eight year old 5 year old and then the two-year-old is just kind of figuring it out right now, but he ate and five-year-old. It's just it's dunk contests in the basement every single day. We have one outside and it gets plenty of years. Whenever people are bored. I wish one of you as long as you've been dumped on yet by your kids your kids. Well I have but only because they make me play game on my knees when I'm going against excuses, huh?.

"Reporter Chris Forsberg joins us. Chris. Thanks for making some time. I'm curious are people in in Boston as infuriated by hirees continued pointing the finger seemingly elsewhere, but himself or people kind of just accepted, his general Malays. Yeah. Sarah's been wild. Like, you you go back, and and really rewind to middle of October and carries out there in front of season ticket holders and says, you know, if you'll have back out plan to reside at Boston it, you know, everyone loves them and thought about the potential of the season announced just by. Months later, really a lot of trauma that's been around the team has been unnecessary. And I think probably would be the first would bent or or maybe not publicly, but he has made missteps, and you know, pointing fingers at the younger guys caused a little bit of tension at the start of the year, and he's had some very publicized rough patches here with figuring out how to be a good leader for a young team. And then even when he kinda thought he was revealing that he recalling LeBron looking for a little bit of help and reconcile a bit with his pass back at spun as a negative to. And so, you know, this has been a learning process for Kyrie as early as easy makes things look on the court. He's struggled just as much to to figure out how to lead these guys off it. And so there has been a little bit of a backlash from fans up here. But ultimately, you know, this team was never going to be judged based on what they did in the regular season it Tyree goes out and has a big night starting tonight at oracle where he's hat creek games. And Ben into the postseason he'll win back some of that support. But it has been. Threat of fascinating too to see the drama unfolded the way that that fans even up here of reacted to it. Chris you think there'd be a different interaction between kyri and his teammates or kyri and the fans if he was a part of that playoff run last year. You know, it would be interesting, and certainly a theme up here because the team has played well in his absence, and, you know, the big debate for a while was okay. I just hope it's just better without kyri..
