"I disagree. I got four months before the bubble even started your you they. Can't you know working out his his again. Let's have a basic conversation. Even if you even if you sell took two days off of running versus taking one day off of running versus taking five days off of running that ten miles is still go hurt now you say big dog but you got five days off but you got three days off but you got one day all that ten miles is still going to hurt. Even if you've got five months off those ten consecutive months with one and a half month period is still gonna hurt bra. They got four months before the bubble so any half the league nine and a half months of basically. But we're not talking about them and we're talking about here. We're talking about them. Because abroad talked about him he said the league. And that's half the leak half the league nine and a half months off shut it and other percentages of that have got up to seven months off which is still board than normal. But here's why this makes no sense. Seventy two games this year which is a reduced season in one hundred forty six days compared to normally eighty two games at one hundred seventy seven days so they gave them an extra month for only ten gains bra. No way you can look at this math and logically say that these guys were taxed this year on top of the fact that they didn't want to get tax therefore they signed up for a deal that now they wanna cry about. It just doesn't add up. I wish i would have played it. Nba this year. All this lead up because this is the most opportune time. They have to physically recover and get yourself right and the world told you you can go anywhere. So that's even more time to work on. Your game is sound like a lot but it really. Ain't that much coming up charles market. Call out paul george for saying he gets criticized but we'll tell you who side we're on over. I sounds can book a trip to the nba finals with a win tonight. We'll tell you chris. Paul's legacy is on the lie nets. Don't speak but yes. The sons are one away from a trip to the nba finals. This would be chris. Paul's far shot at a title in twelve. Previous playoff appearances. But he has to beat the clippers tonight and he's been struggling since his return in game. Three you can just under thirty two percent with only two threes we gotta bring in nba endlessly rick bucur but marcellus legacy on the line tonight No it's not on the line to like tonight. His legacy is already solidified. And let me tell you why is success. Let's say the phoenix suns right. Now go out there and get an advanced past the clippers and get to the finals and they beat whoever comes out the east hip paret and there was a time. Maybe just a couple of weeks ago. We were going to give so much of the lion's share of credit to chris. Paul getting the team over the hup getting the team into the playoffs. Being a court general his leadership is acting in his genius. All of that through osmosis that says success. We were going to give that to chris paul but not now because then failure. If this team goes out there and loses to the clippers the next two games we go look at chris. Paul's like you're the reason largely while they lost to chris paul. They lost to the clippers. Take about this chris. Ball is success would have to share with de'andre eight and of course devon booker one in failure. He will sit there and have to take most if not all of the blame because of his issues post kobe. So that's why. I don't think his legacy is going to really be affected. Chris paul would certainly benefit a little bit from the fact that wow chris. Paul finally made it to the finals. Wow chris paul one in the finals but be real. He's not going to be the first person you look at. Because you're gonna say. They got to the finals in spite of chris. Paul all of that as to in success. You're not going to get to be on the medal and be number one and in failure they gonna look at you like yo you wear to go for the reason we fail. I won't say that. Chris paul's legacy is on the line but i do believe that. The growth of his legacy is on the line. We know chris paul's floor but we still are trying to figure out. What is chris paul ceiling. Here's the issue with chris. Paul in this game tonight and why the growth of his legacy is on the line. Two thousand fifteen western conference semifinals versa. Rockets chris paul mrs two games. The rock chris. Paul's team goes on to lose to the rockets and seven games. Two thousand sixteen. Chris paul india's a hand. He misses another two games. They goes on to lose in the first round against the blazers to that team. Two thousand eighteen. What we all know the rockets. Which chris paul is now a part of their up three two against the golden state warriors. Chris paul mrs two games they go on to lose in seven games to that warriors team. The addition of chris. Paul rather the omission of chris. Paul is what costs chris. Paul's team those games but now the suns are up two games against the clippers without chris. Paul chris paul comes back and they're now one and two with chris. Paul what we realized is this by omission chris. Paul's teams have previously lost in the playoffs. Now it appears that by audition. Chris paul's team may be losing in the playoffs either way. It is the fault of chris. Paul that his team would have lost in the playoffs previously by omission and most presently by addition. I think that if chris paul does take an l. tonight and in this series his legacy at least loses the growth. It had to gain. Did i just had a time work. Are we talking about game seven. Did i miss game six because nothing can happen in game six. That affects chris. Paul's legacy because the series could still be one in game seven in phoenix. And as we know if he wins the series regardless of what's happened in the last few games if he wins the series and they get to the finals all will be forgotten. We've seen that time and time again. The second reason is that. I don't believe that tonight can impact his legacy is that it's already been established. He is one of the best point guards in the last decade. he's also one of the best point guards in the last twenty years who was of average size and was not physically dominant enough to get his team to the finals. If indeed ends up losing this series. There's no shame in that steve. Nash couldn't do it. Derrick rose couldn't do it the guys who did isaiah thomas russell westbrook and rajon rondo. They were they were with very unique special teams and were able to get it done so i don't look at this series changing his legacy autos point. I do believe that if he gets to the finals bed he can elevate his legacy that we may look at him in a different way than we do now but for one reason or another he has not been physically able whether it's injury or simply up. He hasn't been able to complete the deal. So a very good excellent still probably hall of fame point guard but is he in that upper echelon of point guards no chance and if he gets to the finals it still remains to be seen if that would change things but that's his.

"Here you the king has spoken. And i'm not talking about roy's realm talking about lebron james wednesday afternoon. Following the news at coalisland would be out indefinitely with an acl injury. The broad james aired out some grievances on twitter saying essentially. I told you so in his twitter thread. Lebron wrote that. They didn't listen last year when he said. And i'm paraphrasing here. A shortened offseason. Due to the delayed bubble restart would cripple the league stars. He noted that eight impossibly nine all stars are missing playoff games. If you include chris paul. Who's in code related protocols that's the most nba history which is actually a true thing. Chest lebron the researcher lebron onto say quote. It's insane if there's one person to know about the body and how it works year round. It's me. I speak for the health of all our players. I hate to see this many injuries this time of year. Sorry fans wish you guys. Were seeing all your favorite guys right now. Prayer hands emoji king's crown emoji. End quote a lot to unpack here. I the injuries of sucked. Like really sucked. Lebron is right. This level of bodily carnage is unprecedented. Big names have been sidelined like hawaii. Leonard kyrie irving james harden joel and be dot of mitchell. Mike conley jaylen brown. Anthony davis these are the big ticket items that people come to see and according to espn research the previous high nba postseason. History was six such injured. All-stars six think about if chris paul mrs time already fifty percent higher than the previous high mark. We still have a month ago and consider this. According to injury grew. Jeff stotts runs the most authoritative injury database in the nba over in street. Clothes dot com. We've seen more postseason games lost due to injury by all stars than we did in the previous two postseasons combined in fact as recently as the two thousand thirteen. Two thousand fourteen postseason. The one that miami heat fans would rather forget. All stars missed zero playoff games due to injury that year zero and we have as many as nine so like can someone please. Into whom janas and k d. And ben simmons and some bubble wrap like now name the asking yourself why so many injuries we know we're lebron stands on this issue. He thinks it's because of the quick restart. According to elias. sports bureau. The lakers the miami heat had the shortest offseason. Seventy one days in the history of the four major american sports nhl nfl mlb nba. That hasn't happened and sure enough. Lebron eighty lakers couldn't catch up. They crumbled under the weight of the schedule this year. And the miami heat in farewell. Either so you can see why lebron feels a certain way about the re start. Big picture. lebron is on is something. I've been hammering this point for a while now and it feels good. That lebron is now speaking my gospel. Which is this the nba schedule cannibalize it. Stars the reward for the best teams with the star players that go deep in the postseason. The ones who put more miles on their tires than anybody else. Yeah congratulations you get the shortest offseason and recovery period in the league start next season playing catch up and that's just the beginning. Nba stars travel more miles in any other star in sports. Oh and you need recovery days to heal that wear and tear fatigue. We're gonna punish your team if you do that yes. The nba has rules against dnp. Rest as the schedule is effing grueling. It's habitual three. Am hotel arrivals. Long road trips that can make your head spin. When lebron got hurt in march he was in the middle of a five game in seven nights stretch a dizzying gauntlet that the nba had eliminated in recent seasons because it was too demanding but this season well gotta get. The games in the schedule is madness. I literally had a spurs trainer. Tell me once that used to write his hotel room number in sharpie on his forearm because he couldn't remember which city are hotel. You is in at the time much less his room number. And if you hang around. Nba stat long enough. You'll hear tons of stories like these. But here's the tricky thing in lebron twitter mischief he said quote unquote vais. Didn't listen when he warned about the consequences of a fast tracked offseason. Who is day that lebron is talking about. There is it the owners. Is that adam silver in the league office or is it gasping. His fellow players. 'cause remember adam. Silver can't unilaterally. Choose the start date. That's collectively bargain with the players. Union and the players union president is chris paul fellow banana boater and godfather of lebron's firstborn son. So lebron truly has a problem with the system. That's something to take up with. Paul and his fellow players because nothing gets done without the sign off of the mvp. The system is set up this way. Because let's be honest. It makes a shit ton of money for the players and owners but the more that broken bodies start piling up and becoming the story fans will likely tune out the nba and turn on the net flicks by the way it. Just finish peaky blinders. Long-lived tommy shadowed bay anyway if the system unfairly taxes the lebron's katie's and the co is of the league than those guys need a huddle up and figure out how to correct it in other words. The king doesn't have to hold court with twitter. He has the whole court with his peers. For metal arc media. I'm tom hammer. Stroh a good holiday love a good holiday. Yeah what vacation. No no no no no no you have you have it right john so so is is vacation not a word that's used by english people or own just just it's was the first one. There's there's no other added context. It's just feels overly elaborate so like rugrats vacation is called rugrats. Holiday in britain has that side of my expertise area out about okay. How about like christmas vacation. The chevy chase movies no. It's christmas holiday. Oh is it relies. Boom i'm actually surprised by that like christmas..

"80. Orlando's news and talk. He's Jerry Daniels. I'm Nikki football Chase Bunker hanging out with us. You can get in touch. 84458 Oh, 93 to 6. That's 8445893268445809326. The NBA has responded to LeBron James criticism. We're going to get to that coming up here. You can, of course, find us on Twitter. And by the way it is official Chris Patty Jerry to have covid. So does he. That is official now. Yeah, because after you man, because I had seen the story, But then you were like I hadn't seen it all forward you the story, just the other part from anybody reputable, That's all. He also was vaccinated. According to Jalen Rose, Yes. So that's not reputable. Was Jalen Rose, So I'm going off of ESPN. I was just I was just citing like Jalen Rose said it. I don't know if like he had an open conversation with Chris Paul, like, Hey, by the way, um, you've seen the next yesterday. By the way, I got vaccinated like I don't know how that conversation just drops. But yeah, that's according to Jalen Rose that he was so if you believe Jalen Rose, That's who's reporting that that that he has covid. And that he was vaccinated. So if that's not reputable than Jalen seemed, I don't have good information. Jalen seems to think that this is going to be like a small thing like this is going to be a few days. He may miss one game, and that's it. Yeah, I don't know. I don't know what the league does. Yeah, I don't like this is going to be a challenge to the NBA. When it comes. I mean, when, when it comes to managing your covid protocols, And now that he's tested positive, it's a little bit more. Open and close in my opinion than when it was a close contact. Right? There is what happened with LeBron, where he went to the Drake Party and was hanging out at some Tequila party. Some tequila release and they said, Hey, like, you know, he didn't really break the protocols. LeBron is going to play in the first round series against the Suns and then Chris Paul. May miss the first couple of games now that he's tested positive. I can't argue with the league about that, because you have a player that has tested positive for Covid 19. They have very clear very strict rules. It is unfortunate for Chris Paul. And it does bring up you know more of a conversation about the vaccine. And how does this happen? Necessarily. There's a small percentage of individuals that do test positive for Covid 19, even though they've been vaccine, I think was like half of a percent or something. Off the top of my head, but, um Listen. I mean for Chris Paul. I don't know if there is a player that has been more unlucky in the postseason, then Chris Paul, you get to a game away from the Western Conference finals a few years ago. And he gets the quad injury years before that. I believe it was. It was a hand in your hamstring injury when his with the Clippers, playing with Blake Blake Griffin in the postseason after they eliminated the Spurs, so Chris Paul has always been labeled as the guy that can't win the big one. But he's also the guy that just at the biggest moment has been unlucky, and this is going to once again be another piece of evidence towards that. Damn. This is going to put them in a tough spot. If at any moment they're perceived as delaying, I mean, you know, at this point The NBA is praying for seven game series. And then at that point, you know if there's any sort of what is perceived as a delay. How long How many games? Can he miss? The two of you? How many games do you think he can miss? And Phoenix still has a chance to win this. When's his first negative tests. Tell me that and then I'll answer that. Yeah, like it's kind of an impossible question. I'm not trying to be a jerk about it, but it's kind of an impossible question. I think I know where he's going out here is like okay. I mean, I think if he misses two games, and it's 11 there in a good spot if it's an 02 whole, like I think that you're kind of going towards the end the series, especially it's an 03 hole like that. Like he is vital. Not essentially like as a player, but as like a leader like he'll do well as a player like Don't get me wrong on that, because, like, but Devin Booker is like the main guy DeAndre Ayton has been the guy that you've been seeing, like, make strides and now goes, okay. Maybe he's not a bust, after all, but Chris Paul on the court just somehow makes everybody better without him, actually, like contributing much, and I think that's the bigger thing. Yeah, The NBA is rooting for Utah to win this series with the Clippers. Let me explain why, because Chris Paul going out with the positive covid test. You're right, Jerry. They are going to watch the league. Everyone is going to the media fans. The the opinion about how the league handles this will be, I would say, shaded by a how the how the sun's doing the series and be who the sons are playing. If the L. A Clippers lose Kuai Leonard for the rest of the season due to an A C L injury, which very well could happen, and then Chris Paul can't play in this series due to Covid 19 protocols and all of a sudden an L. A team, albeit the Little Brother franchise in L. A. Is in the NBA Finals because Chris called Chris Paul couldn't play. A lot of fans are going to cry foul. But if the Utah Jazz who were the better team in the regular season finished with the best record in the NBA this year, or we had the best home record in the NBA this year if the Utah Jazz, play the sons and win the series Dude. I mean, I think that I think people would look at that. More like okay, well, Utah, always expected to win this series. Utah had the better team. Utah was better in the regular season and the NBA won't be looked at, like they're playing favoritism with an L. A team, but I do agree with Chase. After the first two games in the series. If it is 11 and Chris Paul Mrs. Game three. There won't be any heat. But the minute the sons are in trouble in the series. You're going to see people start checking the league to see what they're going to do especially like, remember what happened just two years ago with Kevin Durant. How? Okay, they're down in the hole. We need Kevin Durant to come back as soon as possible. Even though he was kind of cleared. He kind of wasn't and then bam! Rub his Achilles. Yeah. Achilles tears little different. Best test positive, Kobe, But I'm saying I'm saying like, if you rush things worse things can happen. Oh, all I'm saying here is that Everybody's looking for the NBA to come across as hypocrites here. And they're going to have to go beyond the.

"With the Miami Heat Chasing Jackson, who I've known for. I. Guess Twenty Years Now worked with him at the mothership he's been there a TV host sideline reporter for a long time. He was there when Lebron was there. So we'll ask him get a temperature here on just how good the Miami Heat are after they picked up the win last night. An interesting last night, the buckshot forty, six percent from three point range. They shot fifty three percents from the foul line. Where where did the great free? It's not difficult to shoot a free throw. Insured, job. But boy, we could shoot a three. Can you shoot a free throw? In Greek freak was four of twelve. Watching the thunder in the rockets and I I know it's easy to be critical of Russell Westbrook that deal that when they when they sent Chris Paul to Oklahoma City and you get four first round draft picks there. And I do love watching Russell Westbrook. But that doesn't mean that I think he is successful consistent. I don't know if he's helping them win yet twenty two turnovers including seven by Westbrook. But I will say Chris Paul Has Played Great. He's been the best player on the floor in my opinion, the at twenty eight last night couple big free throws there. And this is a team that was kind of limping into the playoffs as well because you know Chris Paul Mrs Time. But this year when you needed him to step up, he's been great. He's been mostly healthy all season long. And taking care of the ball is going to be. So important going into this game seven I just don't think you can have one of those where you you're loose with the ball and they're begging Russell Westbrook through shoot. But Chris Paul had thirteen fourth quarter points. I didn't know they had a clutch points stat, but they do Chris Paul leads the League in Clutch points. He's. Tied for first collect steals. Those the things you want. And I've said before does he really have a moment Chris Paul's moment in the NBA This might be it. You might be pulling off his NBA moment as he didn't have those moments when he played with clippers. His moment was he was going to go to the Lakers in in a trade that was denied when the League took over ownership of New Orleans. And then going to Oklahoma City almost as if to say, Hey, nice little career enjoy the twilight of your career going Oklahoma City and they were going to rebuild. Chris Paul was on the trading block reportedly. And wisely kept him in house. I think they realized what they had and he would be very beneficial with a young roster there and you're seeing that so far there ceiling is not as high as the rockets. But I don't think basement is as low as the rockets I'm talking about game in night in a night out is the rockets can be absolutely stunning, and then they can shoot themselves in the foot gambling what would happen to the rockets if they don't get out of this series, they're not getting rid of James Harden they gave up too much for Westbrook what do their coach will be gone?.

"Thunder in the Rockets and I know it's easy to be critical of Russell Westbrook that deal that when they when they sent Chris Paul to Oklahoma City, and you get four first round draft picks there. And I do love watching Russell Westbrook. But that doesn't mean that I think he is successful consistent. I don't know if he's helping them win. You had 22 turnovers, including seven by Westbrook. But I will say Chris Paul Has played great. He's been the best player on the floor. In my opinion he had 28 last night. Couple of big free throws their Um And this is a team that was kind of limping into the playoffs as well. Because you know, Chris Paul, Mrs time. Ah, but this year when you needed him to step up, he's been great. He's been mostly healthy all season long. Taking care of the ball is going to be So important going to this game seven. I just don't think you can have one of those where your loose with the ball and they're begging Russell Westbrook to shoot. But Chris Paul had 13 4th quarter points. I didn't know they had a clutch points stacked, but they do. Chris Paul leads the league in clutch points. He's tied for first in clutch steals. Those two things you want. And I've said before, does he really have a moment? Chris Paul's moment in the N B. A This might be it. Hey, might be pulling off his envy moment because he didn't have those moments when he played with the Clippers. His moment was he was going to go to the Lakers in a trade that was denied. When the league took over ownership of New Moreland. And then going to Oklahoma City. Almost a Ziff to say, Hey, nice little career, enjoy the twilight of your career going to Oklahoma City and they were going to rebuild. Chris Paul was on the trading block, reportedly And wisely kept him in house. I think they realized what they had, and he would be very beneficial with a young roster there, and you're seeing that so far there ceiling is not as high as the Rockets. But I don't think their basement is as low as the Rockets. Now I'm talking about game in a night in a night out is the Rockets could be absolutely stunning, and then they can shoot themselves in the foot. What would happen to the Rockets? If they don't get out of this? Siri's back into James Harden? You gave up too much for Westbrook. What could what could they do? Their coach who we got? Mike D'Antoni. Will lose his job immediately. Yes, he'll lose his job. They gave up too much for Ah, Westbrook. So you've got to keep him. And Harden. Eric Gordon. No. A lot riding on this game seven. And I'm I'm really excited about jazz Nuggets Game seven because it feels like the first start of 50 points is going to win that Siri's Kristen, California. Hi, Chris. What's on your mind today? Yes, sir. Actually, on the same point that you're on, Um Chris Paul and Rocket series with the Thunder is the ultimate slap in the face of the Oklahoma City Thunder win this series because you trade Chris Paul. To Oklahoma City for Russ Russell rest. We're trying to get to the finals, and then you get beat by the team. You traded to the poor. I can't remember serious where the last time the ultimate slapping that they happened. But that's just my opinion. Well, thank you, Chris. I agree. Have kids in the back room screaming. Chris wants to get his point. Across you go, Did you? Once again, that's a slap in the face with Chris. By the way. Brendan Ingram. He caps a breakout season. The NBA's most improved player award, Okay? I have a problem with us. I do like Brandon Ingram. He did improve. He was the second pick overall. So he was a disappointment prior to being I don't know if I want this award If I'm Brandon Ingram, I'm I'm the number two pick overall. Shouldn't we? Shouldn't we say if you've been drafted in the first round? How about a lottery pick? You can't be most improved. If you're a lottery or he doesn't want this award. I don't know if you do. You're supposed to be great. And I know he had the health issues memory had the blood clotting issue. So You know he had a premature ending to that 2018 2019 season with the Lakers. And then be able to come back with New Orleans. I understand that And and I'm not trying to diminish that. It's just he was the number two pick overall. Lem. I mean, Luca was third by the same thing applies to Lucas. But he was awesome. Last year you can't you're not most improved. Like most improved is the guy where you go? Oh, he made that leap from Whatever it like Jamal Murray might be the most improved player in the bubble. He averaged 18 points. He scored 50 now. Bamaca bio becoming an all star like that. That's improving, not air, the number two pick overall. I can't give you that award, and I think I'm the only one here who could talk. Educated about this. I won most improved player my first year of grade school football. How could be most improved player if it's your first year grade school football? They gave away awards at the end of the season. I think they were felt bad for being gay me. Most improved flare war. Yes, but isn't the award inherently a backhanded compliment to get most improved? You have to be someone that needs a lot of improvement in some point to become most improved. You're saying at one point you're not living up to your expectations or you're far below. You know where you are. Now. You know you could be most improved, but not is the number two pick overall. If you were undrafted free agent And all of a sudden you develop into an all star..

"That's question Mark Gallo is not a Guy GonNa like run the lanes and you know he could trail trail and pull up for threes but yeah I don't think Adams as they like sprint the floor type guy at this point of his career I would expect them to be one of the least frequent transition Russian teams in the NBA and then obviously the shooting and just the the depth that some of the positions we talked about anything else. Pop out to you well one thing I'd say about just kind of in that transition thinking is that I think kind of in terms of like an entertainment standpoint. It's going to be an a huge adjustment. I think for the fans that are going to thunder games to to kind of now go from a team that was while it had its flaws in its frustrations was highly entertaining because they did he'd play fast. They played downhill. They had these kind of moments in games where they're they're. They're turning new over their score and ten straight points in the building is rocking and now they're going to kind of go from being one of these high tempo high-intensity teams to more of a technical mechanical type of team and just in terms of that sort of jarring. I like this team looks different Russell Westbrook for all whatever you think about them. The Dude is one of the funniest players to watch and the entire world. Every single game is exciting in different and it's it's extremely entertaining. Chris Paul is a fun player but he's not to everybody and so you know I think kind of adjusting adjusting to not having that transition element is going to be something. The fans are going to have to kind of wrap their minds around really do a predicted record for the thunder. Everybody'll forget when I say right now. He's going to hold me to this well. This is preliminary. I mean you can adjust your prediction before the season all just my prediction like April seventh the reserve yeah I I. I'm Kiro. Did you say I got a number in my head but I'm curious all right. I'll go first. That's fair so I try to do this by kind of putting together where I think they're gonNA be interns offense and defense. I think there'll be times times that they can be competent with Chris Paul but I don't know if we're at the Chris. Paul makes good offense by himself stage especially without shooting around him. I think they'll be it Kinda. Low teens are high teens low twenties on offense and then defensively again. I think they can put out some MM units. That look really good There's GonNa be a lot on Stephen. Adams real learn more about him as a defender they roberson is a key pieces while I still have not quite buying how many games James He's GonNa play whether he can still be a difference maker and also be enough of a difference maker defensively to get on the floor mas was because he's a pending free agent to they may not seem as part of this group group and then you throw in the possibly of traits as well I like you. I think it's more likely than not that Paul finishes the season on this team I don't mean poor where'd your mouth by I do think Gallo might end up being gone roberson the vetter he plays the more likely he is to be gone. The shooter could be gone as well so I think that's a real element where they could just be playing out the string at the end unless they really do get off to that. Good start that you're talking about a AH I would throw that in there too defensively yeah I would say kind of in the ten to fifteen range is where I might see them. At this point in time we haven't even mentioned the name Billy Donovan either going to be interesting for him to actually be able to coach this team for the first time right are gonNA find out a billy. Donovan is a good coach. I think yeah well I mean this is a tough situation choice for him. To honestly I mean but quickly you'll get the impression that he could either be on any kind of hotseat or would want to just leave and go back to college college because you know they're not going to be competing for a while. I think he's interested in remaining in the NBA. I think that he wants to if coaches well. I think he wants to stay with the thunder. I think I think thunder are evaluating. M Just in the same regard that they are evaluating everybody else in and one of the main evaluation parts is what kind of developmental coaches because because it's gonNA become such a big part of the thunder's future looks like yeah and they haven't had the greatest success under him granted with not near the highest draft picks in the world of developing players other than Steven Adams of but he was kind of fully formed by the time Donovan came in so I think I'm going to go thirty three wins for this group. If I if you could guarantee me that they're all gonna stay together for the whole season I would be higher. I think I'm also very concerned about Chris Paul Injury I don't think shooter is a winning player so I if I would. Maybe I should be a little bit higher but I think fully formed yeah. They're Kinda twentieth offense and between ten and fifteen and defense so that would be a high thirties eighteen but then you throw in the possibility of injuries and trades and that's target the thirty th yeah and that's that's what my mind's made is that I feel like you almost have to make two predictions for this thunder team. It's okay here's here's the prediction on this team if they they stay together and to me that group is a forty one team. I'M GONNA say they're forty and forty two if they stay together because I do think that they can be solid across the board. I think that they can they can conceivably believe that they could put out an eight-man rotation that can hold up and win games against mid tier and then below average average teams but the team that trades elegant. Ra Trade Dennis Schroder. I'M NOT GONNA say traits Chris Paul because again I I I'm. I believe that he's more likely to stay not but even the team that it kind of takes a hit in terms of what what little depth they do have yeah. I think that there are thirty four win team so it's very hard to predict in terms of because because we just don't know where they go from here if they can stay together and stay healthy which obviously is such a caveat for any team making prediction but I think that they I think I think a goal offer that group would be if it's March twentieth you can say hey heather burr three games out of eighth in the in the West they could make a push and get in but if if they kind of peel back on some of these other parts that they have go get a few more assets for future then. I think that they're like I think that there are mid thirties low thirties these type windy. If Clean Bennett can maybe redirect the Mississippi River to be west of Oklahoma City and movement at Eastern Conference right it could be they could be competing for a playoffs spot but other than that I mean I expected again to be that bottom of the West to be you know forty five win and plus just rain the I just too good. I mean like too many good teams that you know even teams that you would have back in June would have said Yeah you could probably count on them not being very good now. You're like now. The Mavericks Africa's going to be good. The the Pelicans are going to be better than you thought I mean you go down the line and it's there's only really too bad teams in the West and I think that you can you can feel that you were distinctly better than at this point. So can I get one semi-official number. Okay okay if you need for record keeping purposes. I actually have entering nothing. I split the difference of kind of my thirty four and forty and I'll say thirty eight Oga all right. You're thirty eight. I'M A thirty-three best-case scenario. It's like we kind of talked about that. Using low forties take a great season. I think they go forty two and forty all right. Yeah I'd say I'll put it at forty for for the best case scenario and then worst case twenty twenty five honestly yeah now that's the number I was writing as soon as you said that or as you're starting to have I have a couple gallon. Ara gets hurt Chris Paul Mrs Four weeks they trade offs and pieces they start playing Burton Nader and they're young guys and I mean twenty five money even be a little optimistic at that point and and frankly other than Gilbert Alexander. I'm not sure that I would project any of those young guys to to really be like quality rotation guys. I mean they've got a lot of them but they're still it's tough. Given the the lack of shooting you know. Maybe there are quality rotation guy in the sense is that they can defend it and you know if you put other pieces around them. They could hold up in the way that we've seen with the thunder before but they don't have those other pieces around any longer arnold thanks expand. This was awesome. I I really appreciate that you coming on. It'd be good to catch up a throughout the season or you just how you feel about this year the first one in in basically since you've been covering the thunder that they weren't why I should say 'cause you've been run from the beginning but the last the last the last nine years we're they're just they're not necessarily looking at the playoffs yeah. It's going to be different. you know like I said I think it's going to be an adjustment for a lot of people go in the arena like it's GonNa you're going down. There not not only will you not be expecting a win but you also may not be expecting to be entertained and I think what's weird for people nate is that they're gonNa have to kind of. They're they're playing this sort of like two time periods where you've got this group that you want to be kind of emotionally invested you WanNa care about what what they're doing and you got. That's a couple of familiar players but at the same point you're like oh I mean they're pregnant. Trail on these is in in the real the real stuff coming in like twenty twenty three twenty twenty four and that's when I really need you just start caring about the development of this group so it's GonNa it's GonNa make an awkward. I well Thanksgiving medicine. This is great at Rice young the the the twitter handle not out that you need my promotion. Have you been have you been at ESPN for a the last. When when did you officially go to ESPN zone fourteen? I believe something I almost forgot. was that late yeah well yeah I mean I was part of the whole troop networking all that stuff you know okay yeah officials in early two thousand fourteen getting aren't meant well. Thanks again appreciate it and looking forward to catching up throughout the season man. This is the absolute perfect time in my life to have gotten butcher box walks as a sponsor because you know I was on that seven week road trip and I and I about fifteen pounds or so and so now I'm starting to do a low carb. Eating regimen and butcher box has arrived at my door at the perfect time for that. It's all really high quality meet packed fresh shipped frozen and vacuum sealed so it stays that way really was impressed by their packaging no styrofoam which was really nice which you get from some of these other services their options include one.

"Russell Westbrook trade so tasks? It's been a while since we've talked to you. What was your first impression when you heard everything was going down the Russell Westbrook is leaving the o'casey Thunder? I just never thought that Russell Westbrook would do the same thing that everybody else is doing would be heat that he would be okay was trying to make a super team somewhere besides okay. He just thought he would zig when everybody else would zag. I thought he would basically say F that I can do this by myself. Kevin Durant you WANNA leave. I got this Paul George WanNa leave. I got this and maybe we're in a into a new era of Russell Westbrook where he understands that I can do this by myself. I mean he was sort of humble. I in his exit interview after the okay so he's under lost in round one and he kind of said you know I gotTa work on my shot and he was okay with Paul. George Lebron getting on instagram saying love you brody. I mean it didn't feel like they all Russell. Westbrook me against the world type thing so I think that maybe he's going to be fine with another guy. You know being it being the primary guy because I think this is different going from yes Paul George in Casey Kevin Durant and okay see it was quote unquote a and one B by going to Houston James Harden is obviously the guy at Russell Westbrook work is going to be the number two who can take a huge load off his shoulders and it might be a might be crazy enough to work. I'm with you. It's ass. I thought that Russ was a thunder lifer but apparently that's just not a thing. That's going to happen anymore. If westbrook after he stayed when he had a chance to leave after Kevin Durant left if he stayed and he still being traded a couple of seasons later that maybe the the lifer is gone skis. I'm curious to hear what you you thought as well when you first started the trade. Now I mean it is crazy. It's wild to try and wrap your head around Russell Westbrook being in another Jersey next season and not rapid okay see but here's what I think about this trait. I I am baffled. I'm a little shocked from the rocket side of things it makes sense. It makes sense from the other side of things. After Paul George comes and says hey trade me. I'd like to go play with Leonard and they're like what Oh okay and then we'll get a bunch of picks all right well then. It didn't look like you were just GonNa be rebuilding around around Russell Westbrook despite him at times looked like he was a lifer I mean it just made sense to move on from him as well and he was flying with that and they moved them but from the rockets side of things I mean this was all I keep thinking about is those rumors those reports the James Harden and Chris Paul butted heads and didn't like each other they must have been true and I know Daryl Morey came out a month ago and said No. That's all fake news not true. These guys are fine what he's asking for trade well. I think he was lying to us because this is obviously what what happened. Yes they get a younger Guy Westbrook but a guy who has a ton of mileage on those knees a ton of surgeries on those knees and who looks to that could age a lot worse than even a guy like Chris Paul. I understand Chris Paul Mrs Games but I still keep thinking Chris. Paul is a better player sniping a little older a better player when he's paired with James Harden then a guy like Russell Westbrook who can't hit threes is horrible even when he gets to the free throw line doesn't play defense. I just think Chris Paul. It was a better fit now and the weird part is if the rockets could have just stayed cool and got along then. It looked like that championship window was there was there is to walk through step through that window out on the balcony like I am in Saint Augustine here looking at the beautiful each other in the distance and the palm trees in a car pulled up so don't mind that car it. Could you turn your car off Sir trying to talk here but yeah it's like the championship window might be it might be open a little bit longer but I don't think it's any bigger with Westbrook from the rockets side of things so so look I think he just came down to harden and crystal not getting along and Maury being sort of forced to throw those picks in and the pick swaps to get to go to the Chris Paul because I think we got way too caught up in this Chris Paul contract. I really do especially when we start comparing. It's Russell Westbrook contract. Heck was the justice insanely big so yeah. I'm shocked. I.

If you get a guy down low it's a little bit of shopping really throw you off in the shooter as he gets the free throw and he's coming alive here. Order.

"Khan. What about Kamilo Alvarez going into the ring against a Mia con? We can't assume that that glass join go, get knocked out. I can't assume that again, when we ask when we ask if one side one or the other side lost on giving credit to the side that didn't things to win the game, you're saying because he didn't rise to a level and come through in the clutch, they lost it, but that would have been him doing something to win it. It's like it's defense and their debt, and their that won that game. I gotta move on. He's acting like he can't be expected to Rotterdam Caja while we're talking about you is one of the top players in the world. If I can't assume you go to rise even word this time. Okay. Durant has now shot under forty percent in consecutive games after not doing so once in any of his first twenty eight playoff games at the warriors. So clearly Golden State missing Andrea Agudelo, but they're not the only ones dealing with injuries. Chris, Paul exit game five. In the final. Minute last night and received extensive game leaving the Toyota center at about midnight telling the undefeated Marc spears that he'll play in game six. The rockets will fishery update poll status after he gets more treatment today. Oh, max, not good for your rockets. What's the impact of CPI threes injury moving forward. Well, here's the real impact guys. Let's spin this forward. I tweeted about this last night. The impact couldn't be now. Stephen, I, you know, I'm picking Boston to beat the Cavs and seven, but I have knowledge that's tough pick because LeBron James and a game seven on the road can get it done. None of the following things I'm about to say or implausible. You may not think that they're very likely to happen, but you have to acknowledge there's a good pretty good chance that could happen. Number one that CPI three is healthy enough in one of the next two games that the rockets get by the warriors to that, it compromises him at the very least for the next series. Maybe even has to miss some time in order to get by the warriors three that LeBron James can lead the Cavs to an unlikely win on the road in Boston. We've seen him do stuff like that before stuff. Sometimes even more impressive and then four that LeBron James. In the finals. Now against the team that basically only has one superstar in harden, has an actual chance to win that series. Meaning something listen this year, I thought the Brian, James does not have a chance to win his fourth ring after the events of last night in the Houston Golden State game specifically, the fact that Chris Paul's leg took a turn for the worse to the point where you saw it looked like he was near tears, watching his teammates play without him. He wanted to be on that floor so bad and he had an all time. Great. Heroux ick performance. But if Chris Paul MRs games or isn't right for the entire finals, it is not unthinkable that LeBron James could win his fourth championship. This season. I don't give a damn about that right now. I really, really don't lend the LeBron get best Boston. I k he's got enough trouble with them. I'll think about LeBron finals when the finals get here right now they don't take because they up pick because they didn't. They didn't show up. Okay. Here's where I'm concerned about when we talk about the impact of Chris Paul's injury moving forward. First of all, the Houston Rockets are not beating the Golden State Warriors without Chris Paul. If I'm if I'm Mike, did Tony. I do not play Chris. Paul at all in game six. He's not saying the flow. Give a Dan Highfields. I don't give him what he says. I'm not putting them out different about a fat. I wouldn't even let him travel the only way I will let Chris Paul travel with the team is if the strength and conditioning department and the doctors are all with the team at the oracle. So you have a better chance of receiving the treatment you so richly need and deserve, okay. That's the only condition under which even allow him to. To travel to northern California. Other than that, he's standing back in Houston. I don't give a damn what he says he doesn't. He he, he will be outranked and overruled. If I'm the owner Mr. Fatiha I would I would. I would pull rank. He would not even be allowed to take the trip because I'd be afraid that them sitting in them damn airplanes for four hours trying to get to northern California Lord knows that the fog might delay your another two hours. I'd be worried about all of that. I wouldn't even let him get on a plane. Okay. So he ain't playing game six. It's up to me, but the other part about this is this moving forward. I'm worried about his dollars. Let's keep in mind that Chris, Paul walked away from over two hundred million dollars when he decided to leave Doc Rivers and the Los Angeles Clippers to come to Houston. This keep in mind as they have been a litany of injuries just postseason career and he's thirty two years of age, and you have. Free agent class that includes the likes of LeBron employed. I have been told in a shoe would by the Houston Rockets that taking care of Chris, Paul is pretty much ready done. There's no way on earth. They're not going to take care of them, but this is one of the great great point guards in NBA history. One of the great leaders in NBA history who's the president of the players association and incredible role model a wonderful family, and I'm not just talking about his wife and kids. I'm talking about them, beautiful parents of his his brother, who's a great guy and the whole bit. He's an incredible role model. Chris in Iran, now, are we going to need a pool. Now we, we, we want, we want him to get his money. And if you ought to Houston Rockets and your health is questionable in the postseason all the time. Business, and I gotta wonder about that too. So that's what I'm concerned about because I want him to get his money. I'll say this Stephen, a nineteen eighty eight. The dodgers are in the World Series and the guy who really Kirk gift changed or at least very much helped the culture of that team who wound up winning the MVP award. He probably didn't deserve during the regular season, but limped up to the plate and off the best closer in the game at the time, Dennis Eckersley hit a home run to win game one. You know, like that's the kind of inspiration that I think Chris Paul is giving the Houston Rockets right now playing the way he did last night. I think people will always remember the series, particularly if Houston wins, but I will say this, you and I often disagree on this show about this. We agree don't even get on the plane for game six hyperbaric chamber for the next four days. Do everything in your power, Chris, Paul, and the Houston Rockets to make sure. C. p. three can go in a game, seven. And the funny thing is Stephen a little bit of a trap game for Golden State. If Chris, Paul doesn't even travel, it's not unthinkable that they could spring a surprise. You know, a real big upset even without Chris Paul, if Golden State, let's guard down because see Pete three's not there, but at any rate they could win a game seven on at home. If c. p. three is good to go. He must not play game six, but the hat take the day with CPI three compromise. MAC says, LeBron has a shot at the chip gentlemen. A one trick pony literally, I show up the kids parties enact to. That's pretty much it. So excuse me for being bitter when Geico says, not only could we save you money on car insurance, but we do more like twenty four, seven access online over the phone or even via or award-winning mobile app will ooh, LA LA, aren't they multitalented.
