Fresh update on "cj mccollum" discussed on NBA Front Office w/ Keith Smith & Trevor Lane
"Alfred Caminos going to be back home coming soon. He started practicing Soon Michael Carter-Williams is probably the next guy to come back. They need him cuz I need a backup for Cole Anthony. So that's that's going to be good a couple guys off the songs Dario Sarge and Damian Jones. So they're they're going to have to work through that Michael Porter Jr. Should be back potentially as soon as tonight for the Nuggets after he had a long absence for covid-19. That would be great to see the Grizzlies get back to full strength. They just got hammered by injuries early this season. So be nice to see them back. Especially after they had such a positive last season obviously didn't finish the way they wanted it to not making it through the the playing around in the bubble butt but this is a good team and and they exciting full of some young players that I'd like to see out there and healthy Jaren Jackson Junior's incredible, of course ja Morant now back out there. So yeah took a little paws came at a tough time for them. Cuz everyone five straight games. They're playing really really well and looking, you know, like maybe they are going to be back in the mix for a playoff spot. So yeah. This stuff oh and in Portland, it's completely skipped Portland. So so you're just ravaged with injuries. Yeah, CJ McCollum. Collins Jusuf nurkic. So two starters and then Collins who was you know should have been a key real big man Off the Bench Collins hasn't played all year McCallum and nurture are going to be out for at least probably four to six weeks for those two guys. So it's kind of right back to where it was dead. For Portland. Yeah, a lot of run for in a scanner. But you know on the plus side a lot of run for our guy Harry Giles, you know, she should certain see a lot of minutes in my guess is before nurkic a back Giles as a starting center in Portland over counter would not surprise me would not surprise me at all that guy. He still has tons of potential tons of upside and does I'm excited to see what he can do there. But but she wanted for Portland that they've got so many pieces out again. It just feels like they just can't fully get her healthy, but that may lead into some more deals coming around there. It is on the trade deadline that could I could have you like that segue that does a nice that was the question right there. That's why you quit the job and you're doing this now, that's right. That's right. I always like that it's because of that exactly. So I I believe unless I'm wrong. I think that's it for our transactions. I can't think of any others that.

Houston's James Harden reminds other NBA teams why they should trade for him with sparkling 44-point debut
"Let's talk about James Harden because he played his first game and by the way, think about the circumstances here because James Harden that they make the trade right. Russell Westbrook goes out. John Wall comes in Russell Westbrook. You know he was a bit of a problem. Hardened wanted somebody else in here. He wanted wall. They get wall. Everything's fine, You know, like, maybe we hardened gets traded at some point, but that's gonna fix things and obviously doesn't it doesn't do that at all. Hardened doesn't show up for the start of the season on time. He's not exactly interested. So you have a brand new head coach of Brand new GM and your superstar is M I A Great. Where is he? Paul? Silas? I don't know. I've no it is Stephen Silas. That's it. Yes, it is. Dad's Paul. Right? So, Yeah. So, Stephen Silence. I'll get there sees forgettable. That's why James Harden doesn't like him. No, I don't know anything about Steven stylist on that year T bash the guy, but I'm gonna make that mistake more than once now. Here's the thing for Harden did not show up and be partying and then get punished for that. And then, a week later, he's out partying again. If he dodges, he dodges the fine because the game gets postponed that the Rockets were supposed to open their season against the thunder. That game did not happen because the Rockets didn't have eight players to play the game. Now one of those guys that wasn't available Was hard and so if hard and was there, I think they would have been able to play the game. I'm not 100% on that. But I'll double check that, but he made his debut finally for the Rockets. Tonight now. Great game. By the way. I mean, my goodness hell of a game. They played the Blazers and the Blazers air Great, like when I look at the NBA, and I think about teams that just I would love to watch on any given night. If you tell me that team is playing somebody decent. I'm gonna watch that game Blazers. Absolutely. Top five favorite team like I I just loved Damian Lillard. I love the attitude over there. I just think there are fun Team. So Blazers Houston Rockets game goes into overtime. CJ McCollum playing lights out, hitting three pointers James Harden in his debut, playing lights out basketball, You look great. And I'll give you the stat line because for hard and it's one of those things where you're gonna be a little worried about what he looks like. There's been questions about what kind of shape is in and so for him to not get that work in its already shortened off season. You just kind of wonder. Okay? How does James Harden look? Well, he answered every question he possibly could. In 43 minutes. James Harden 44 points 17 assists. I mean, wow. Wow. Like, what else can you say? Just And and that's the fascinating thing about all of this. This is where it gets really curious because You see, James Harden put up 44 17. And everyone immediately forgets about everything that happened and That's why he gets away with it right. Like everybody is going to be going nuts now. Anybody that is in the conversation to get James Harden? They want him right? Like I'll be curious. If you're a fan of the teams there six teams right now that have been connected the heart and that he said that he's willing to go there off the top of my head. I know Milwaukee. Portland, Philly, Brooklyn, Boston. I know missing one more, but To be a fan of one of those six teams that hardens interested in For all the debating and questioning of what kind of teammate is he? What kind of effort is he going to put in? What does he look like? In two years, you know, Because obviously you're trading for these two years. But maybe you want to keep him around. What does he look like? You know, can you buy into him with all of his habits that we've talked about so much over the last couple of weeks? Well, you put up 44 17 his first game back. Who cares, right? That's what a lot of people are going to say. And if you're a team that's desperate to win right now, That's what a lot of them are going to say. That's what a lot of front offices are going to say. That's the argument is he is such a supremely talented player that as much as we've squabbled Over who he is and what he's about, and what his trade value is. He is this ridiculously good at scoring the basketball and This is what the league is for. They play basketball, So you put the character stuff aside. If he's good enough of doing the job that's the life of a superstar.
Los Angeles Clippers Complete Historic Collapse As Nuggets Take Stunning Game 7
"Well. This night is going to be remembered for a long time and there's a whole bunch of different reasons why people are gonNA remember it. The laker fans have their reasons. the clippers fans have their reasons. The nuggets fans have their reasons I think I just clip. Yeah they're there It's it's rough right now. I mean I I I think any team that had duplex have experienced. What just there? That is a devastating blow, but I think I just watched. McMahon I'll see if you agree. was. An Absolute Total grade a choke. Oh, not just. All much in the three one aspect I mean that jokes who actually in the three one aspect especially in the blowing double figure leads in the last three games while choke in that even setting that aside, I'm just talking about the actual performance of night. Oh, what it only took him seven minutes in the fourth quarter to get a bucket. Yeah. Okay. We're of P. turnovers than frequent hold on hold your fire is just for a second dinner decided the backboard hold your fire for a sector. That would i. I think what I saw was that was a historic choke job and combined with a spectacular game seven performance by the nuggets or. Spectacular Three game comeback by the neck and look. Let's give the nuggets credit to straight series down three one comeback when Bo series Yokich. There's no. Yeah. But with Yokich is at minimum a second tier superstar right behind the parental VP candidates well. He was a I hear superstar in this game. For sure. He totally eviscerated Kawai Leonard in this game and really in the back half of the series but in this game. especially. Yeah I mean he he was great in this game I mean. Just. Look at the box score Paul millsap only had six points but. his buckets were huge. He played on the better six point three rebound performances. I've ever seen Jamal Murray. We've gotta get in this guy's on the Kahane's factor starting five this year forty points in a game seven. So yes. Absolutely, give the nuggets credit and we've got time to talk nice about the nuggets. But what we need to do right now is pile on the most arrogant bunch of guys. The most Arab arrogant franchises never sniffed a frigging conference finals and hey, props to the Portland Trailblazers back court for completely unloading their troll game. Warden CJ mccollum absolutely deserved to just fire away because you got Paul George and Patrick Beverley acting like they're on some frigging dynasty. They've never sniffed the conference files. Why are they act like there's some you know I mean come on now. So yes, I. I'll be honest I thoroughly enjoyed the collapse and the troll jobs that came along with it.
NBA Players, Owners Meet To Discuss Plan Of Action
"Get back on track WHOA Jeez here. Thankfully to tell us what might happen here. Obviously, it's a fluid situation Adrian. I. Guess. The first thing we want to ask you is, what are we expecting today like what is going to happen today meeting Liz I have no idea what's going to happen today guys yesterday was. A remarkable day and one that I don't think any of us who cover the NBA. WHO Who've covered sports and and in my generation Bo forget but to set the table for today. The players having eleven am meeting here in the bubble. And the owners have a board of governors call at the same time. I'm pulled eleven am obviously that'll be done virtually and so simultaneously, those two groups we'll be meeting and the players. I think after a night, it was an emotional day. It was an emotional meeting they had. With most of the players in the bubble coaches were there last night there came a point where? The players asked the coaches to leave so they could hash it out amongst themselves. The teams I was told broke up into groups. and then they're going to continue that conversation this morning but I mean what's at stake is simply This season and are the players as a group going to decide to move forward. Continue the playoffs by all indications that the three games that are scheduled today. Not. Going to be played, the League hadn't officially. announced it but every indication we got in the last night regardless of what they decide moving forward that those three games later in the day. Wouldn't be played, but the players have more to work through and talk through. And consider a lot of different. Consider a lot of different scenarios. And and ultimately consequences of what it would mean to shut this bubble down. You're there in the bubble woes and you could get and I just WanNa know like what is what's the feeling is like does feel like NAM empty and just spooky and? What's that feeling like? I. Think the last several days keyshawn. and. You could feel a building you could watch on I think you guys could watch. On television and and read what people are saying and see. The interviews with George Hill and Fred Van Vliet. and. The emotion that players were carrying. Since the shooting of Jacob Blake earlier. In the week. And how that resonated not just all over the country. But here. and. On top of the emotion and Guys have been here a long time and it wears on you and guys miss families guys feel. At times like their captive in this place it I get it. It's a resort like I. Don't mean to. It is a resort and I get it and. All of us are lucky to be able to work. In, this country right now and a lot of people can't but there is a cumulative effect about being away this long. And you add on top of that. the horrific nature of that shooting. Another in a series of them in years of decades. Of them a century of them and so. data impacted this place at impacted those inside. And It was a domino effect yesterday of once. The bucks made the decision to knock him out of the locker room and not play. And then how it impacted the other teams and lead to that meeting last night that was pretty rot times. The to La teams the LA clippers. The Lakers have two of the hour say most powerful voices in professional sports in Genie Boston. Steve, bomber what type of influence can they have on the rest of the NBA owners to get something done in favor of the players? It's a good question I think the question is. And I think what the players Were spending last night doing. And and previously, it's been an ongoing conversation here. But is there something and and I and I know in the meeting last I a lot of players. Disgusted I know CJ mccollum was who's an executive on the players committee or on the on the Executive Committee of the Players Association. mccomb the Blazers Jaylen Brown the Celtics war leaders. in the Union and top players in league talked about having a plan of action and the bucks in the locker. Room. In those hours after that they after they decided not to play. Working with their own ownership in Milwaukee to get on the phone the Attorney General of the Lieutenant Governor in Wisconsin to talk about ways to move forward. To try to impact. that. Particular case. In in their state in Kenosha. And so you saw players already beginning to do that yesterday now. How does that continue today? What what players are asking themselves I know what organizations are asking players when they got back to the rooms. Last my back to the hotels. What is the endgame if we don't play? One is that what is it that we wanNA accomplish outside of the bubble outside of this environment outside of the platform that you have right now to play. play NBA Games and speak to the world through. Through this. What does that look like and so I think that's all going to be part of the conversation today with the players and with the owners if they kinda reconnect after those two meetings.
NBA playoff predictions 2020: Why the Lakers are unlikely to win NBA Finals, according to one model
"I'm glad that we finally are getting into like what I consider The meet of the season. The scrimmages weren't doing a damn thing for me. I could care less about the scrimmages that was for the players to get warmed up. That was to give everybody a chance to actually get something on the television screen. And then you know the eight games. I was like, whatever with a games I guess I felt like the Los Angeles Lakers, who went three and five during the eight games. Now they want to get revved up and try to win an MBA title and I get it. That's what I've been waiting for. So really, basketball is finally here. For me. It felt like a guy going over the weekend when the Portland Shura blazes one, they're playing game over the Memphis Grizzlies. John Moran went out and did what you would expect him to do. Ah, 35 points. I think he had eight assists, also had eight turnovers. He's still a young player. He's a killer. I hope he can get bigger. A little bit more devastating because he's a He's a rare combination in the MBA. He's going at your throat, but this year was not about him. Okay. This year is gonna be about who was gonna win the N BA title under an end Unique circumstances. Who's gonna walk away the N ba champion? In something and nobody would have ever thought about months ago. We actually didn't know whether or not we were gonna have a resumption of the embassies in I remember actually being on n ba TV. And when the season was shut down, I was hanging out with my main man, Channing Frye. We were getting ready to do our show and boom Rudy Gobert such positive and then Donovan Mitchell ends up testing positive and then the season shut down and nobody Back on March 11th knew what the hell was going on. And now that we got basketball back, it's real simple. It's what it is wide open. It's wide the hell open. I don't know who you could necessarily come out and say it is a favorite. Vegas right now says that the Milwaukee Bucks are a slight favorite over the two Los Angeles teams. In the Los Angeles Lakers. They haven't really had a great showing since the bubble got restarted. The offense has been mediocre. The offense has been pretty slapstick. The offense has been one of the worst in the N B A in the bubble. LeBron James. You know what you're going to get from LeBron. They sat him a game for precautionary reasons, had a growing issue but came back and everything is fine. And in the last game before the bubble he barely played got in a sweat, and they sat him down. Because LeBron James at this stage of his career, Yes, he's going to play basketball games that they're not gonna load manage LeBron James to death. But the reality is he's in it for rings. He's in it for a championship. He's in it for his legacy. Now. Unfortunately for him, he's playing what a bunch of role players that you can flip a coin and not necessarily know which direction they're going to go. Even his other superstar Anthony Davis. Needs to be more aggressive if the Lakers were gonna go ahead and make any type of move towards an MBA title. That's just the reality of it, and their opponent in the first round is not going to be forgiving. I told you that the Portland Trail Blazers have been on a roll. They have been on a run. You have. Ah, you're kitsch, who's back who missed almost all the last season of the majority of this season is well due to a leg injury. You have a rejuvenated Carmelo Anthony, who's not tasked with going out there and show shouldering the entire scoring low but can still knock down a big shot. Whether or not it's efficient or not. That's a totally different question. CJ McCollum is bowling out of control with a fracture in his back Gary Trent Junior is stepping up. So you might say that the Portland Trail Blazers at this point in time that they have more depth. That they have more of Ah street. That they're coming in with a little bit more fire in their back pocket. Even know in many cases, LeBron James to most, I would say too many is still considered the best basketball player in the league. You might say it's Yana, Santa Campo. But if I need someone to still run me to a title, I'm still looking at the guy who's done it the majority of his career and that's LeBron James. But they do have some issues and Damian Lillard he has his own thoughts about taking on the Los Angeles Lakers. Listen, what little it had to say The lady is the number one seed in the West for a reason. They got the best player in the world on a team. But at the same time we didn't fight a Zhar does before in the bubble, just they argued a sea org Anges Get beat up on. We feel like We have it. We have a chance in a serious against anybody in this league.
"cj mccollum" Discussed on The Lowe Post
"So Lakers game one is Tuesday you spared yourself a second play in game by winning the first one, which I think was huge. You get a couple of days arrests I think the number one on everyone's mind in the series is is from your guys. Perspective is have they just expended so much energy to get here that the Lakers have been a little ragged on offense Lebron has it looked quite the same but does Portland with cj going with nerd really having just come Bobby Nurk has been unbelievable after a year a year off the play at this level collins just got hurt in the play in game. Do. They have anything left for this series I know when you're going to save but do you have enough left for this series? Yes we'll find out soon. Enough. Okay All right. That was sick. I WANNA give one guy on your team. Some love everybody has noticed the shooting that Gary Trend Junior has provided to you. I was very happy that draymond green went on twitter. Thread about a back steel that Gary Trent had against. Brooklyn because he had another one in crunch time against Memphis and he had another deflect should he that beautiful like tip touched pass the I. Don't know if it was to you it was to someone who is alone on a fast break that would forget the shooting. Well, don't forget it. Could you need every god? Damn point to get to get to this point that dude is making these little winning plays. All the time I just like are you? I he had a nice regular season like he can score a little bit. He can hit some ISOS shots like you could tell he was becoming a part of your team. Are you surprised how big a party or team has been able to become? Not surprised because I've seen the work in a state, all the time I've been in a situation like that. You know where you're good enough to play but you're not playing you're capable but you're getting the MP's though what that does to you on the inside salary Dr Job motivates you. He's hungry. He's taking the game seriously hours with his NBA DNA always said it. Yes. NBA It's it's in him now all work and get an opportunity. The work at the opportunity in the rest is history shot making his is what it is. We always knew shoe but his approach, the defense event understanding that's to get him out of court and keep him on the court is what's taking him over the Hump. He's always been a dog he's always been aggressive. He's always had confidence in never lacked but now the world is starting to see he can do the little things. The intangibles he's smart I dream on noticed the casual basketball fan doesn't notice that you have to know when this switch and sometimes it's not even a call. It's just. GotTa step on me I got your back. I got I. got take out the bigs lakes and usually you volunteer stealing. But this is a guy who's first experience as a as A. Player playing meaningful games towards the poll season in ease acknowledged on those little things. Five steals countless deflections on the pressure, the confidence, the east talking trash all-stars it doesn't matter to him. It doesn't out there. That's that's that's in the way we're trying to accomplish a NASA type of got. You need to type mentality you have to have when you want to be successful as he continues to gain more years we experience the respective calm but the real ones already known respect while he's about to get some reps on arguably the greatest player of all time so good luck to him in in that regard did you guys do anything to celebrate after the Memphis in did? You Go home arrested you have dinner did you did you do anything fund to mark the moment? I mean we always you take the time to to celebrate milestone would be in my seventh year in the League seven years. Playoffs is something to be proud of in our staff at set goals for the season in face much adversity we definitely wanted to recognize that. But at the same time in a we don't we expect ourselves to do expect to be in the play-offs every year. So now it's more so turn the page, but you know we all got a lot of wine out here. So it's it's only right. You pop some bit bubbly a little of everything. Melo Outta the. CD to the were dull. Some type of Bordeaux. WIZA- called see. I don't know you're talking to speak your. Something my white wine standard is whatever is in the fridge at my house or in the in the wine thing. See. DP. Shed, Tanno archery starting. this is atlas like Margot. Burgundy something out like I'm a I'm a he no war guy like here. Melo is Burton be So it's it's it's. CDP. I'm going to have to there was some celebration we had. Eight. Ninety Ever the WHO's the Best Ping Pong player on the team Pingpong Myers is probably one of the best being prompted. My. Lives. Leonard, not currently under team. Our team. Is Good he's staff Jamal one of our video coordinators. He's good but I haven't seen players all night. Sure. So is this a couple more questions than go is this is this fun or is it become tiresome to be away from your fiance everyone to be away from their loved ones have you grown? Obviously the winning is fun and the playoff run run to the playoffs is fun but like his has the experience become a normal enough that you're looking around like, okay. This is actually kind of enjoyable or is it just? Is it a grind? You Miss Family I miss my fiance. Miss my dog miss my family being around in my inner circle. Your Chef, you miss all of those things but you have a job to do today job do I think we've done a great job will continue to spread that message on what we important not only for ourselves before this world also being able to play the game. So that's been. It's been fun for me. It's challenging at times but. I I would equated to like pre-draft. You know what I mean you move usually you go somewhere that you're not familiar with and you begin working out. It's Kinda.

NFL: Brady's house call didn't violate league rules
"Tom Brady is not in trouble for going over to his offensive. Coordinator's House Byron Left. Which who? Tom went into the wrong house in. Tampa and I guess some of the Front Office people in the NFL were like. Hey you can't be there with your coaches. You're not allowed to do that and so tom I guess is not in trouble. What about breaking and entering thing that I I don't if you open the door and walk in. Is that breaking and entering if you walk into an unlocked door of a house that you weren't invited to is that breaking you're entering the people didn't see mad but I don't know if you're breaking you're entering.

Sabonis scores 20 points, Pacers beat Trail Blazers, 106-100
"Indiana held off Portland in the closing moments for one oh six one hundred women the Pacers saw thirteen point lead with five minutes to go shrink to three points with twenty nine seconds left before Myles Turner I stood for Indiana with a three pointer Victor Oladipo scored twelve third quarter points to ignite a pacer rally I was more aggressive and we got stops so we could we have the ability to play like that for four quarters and every night so we just got into a boat on the Montesa bonus let Indiana which has won four of its last five games with twenty points the trail Blazers got twenty eight points from CJ McCollum Tom McCabe Indianapolis

"Controversial ending the Blazers jazz Utah one one seventeen one fourteen but at one point the game should been tied to one sixteen because the referees missing for Asian goaltending with seconds to go on a Damian Lillard laya afterwards they admitted they were wrong CJ McCollum says not acceptable you lose you lose items like that and they just made us there's beat us but you would have a chance to win down the stretch and they did give us a chance to win the reason why I could not be replayed on the court was the calls
"cj mccollum" Discussed on Pull Up with CJ McCollum
"Jewelry watches and accessories at Store near you online Swarovski DOT com. Okay back looking at some of the other proposals. They're potentially trying to make. Do you think it's more realistic. And easier for them to execute the final four or having a playing game with nine and ten unseat. Good oh I'm so I'm sorry to analysis this is. This is a part of the proposal. Yeah I I'm sorry for being a pest to make with the situation with this topic I really far and I'm not wanting to be traditionalist. I don't you know I don't. I don't think what happened a hundred years ago. Just because right a hundred years ago means we gotta keep going just. Because I'm not all about that but I am with great great ideas you know. I am with Ideas that makes sense. So let's talk about the reseeding here. Quick CJ. I have a hard time Tom believing that okay. Lack ten fifteen years whatever whatever it has been the western conference has been the the power conference okay so it doesn't look like that's going to change anytime soon. I have a real tough time believing that eastern conference owners will vote to rec- to play a Western Conference team. You know the round before reaching the finals. Why would a eastern conference owner approve of that? It makes no this like you WANNA give yourself a chance to get to the finals to play The Lakers the clippers. The Blazers the rockets. You know you wanNA give yourself you know when you get to that point you take your senses but why would you wanNA. Why would they want to you? See and play a Western Conference team the round before the finals. I don't get that I don't understand it. And then we get to the play a game. I Know James Hart said earlier earlier today like this college. What are we talking about here? A play a game. I mean you can make the case that we got too many teams in the playoff off already. Play a game. What what why? Why do they get a play? A game eighty two days. What enough sometimes out could've happened that you know come on now up fair season like at a certain point we got like look? Can we stick to stick to the game of basketball stick to some some of the rules and guidelines that we have instead of implementing all these kind of loophole to get lube. Why do we need to look for a life so bottom let you go but you know in the Eastern Conference you know? There's a lot of people. Don't pay attention to the first couple of rounds of the eastern conference a less it deal is is involving those two teams 'cause usually about two hundred eastern conference who you think have a legitimate shot to win the title and most a lot of times. Only one of these accomplished. So why do we need another team in the playoff field has on business. There's not going to be able to compete for Charleston. It doesn't take me. I don't I don't get it. They're very interested in hearing your thoughts. Yeah my thoughts are along those lines. I would argue one thing go because we know the eastern conference historically hasn't been on par with the Western Conference in terms of record you look at the ACDC. Tim Seed in the East verses. Just eight nine ten in west historically there five sometimes four games under five hundred still having a shot at making the playoffs whereas there's there's teams in in the West who were eight games ten games over five hundred barely getting into the playoffs. If there's a receding chances are some of the eastern conference teams could potentially have a better record than the Western Conference Team Right which means they will be positioned to a host host. I game against the Western Conference team. which would make it interesting for from fan viewership standpoint but your argument is valid Comma Eastern Conference team owner? Her right why would I wanNA play a Western Conference team early when I don't have to like that makes sense in less. You're really confident in your team name or you're really just about your money. Because do you think people would pay more to see east versus West before the finals. That's what you have to kind of decide from ownership standpoint. Do you think fans would be more more eager to see Boston. Hypothetically played the clippers in the semifinals or the Blazers to play Miami. Even though that's a long oh fly with a lot of commuting back and forth. Do you think fans would be more excited about that. That opportunity to see it before the finals. I think they're looking at every angle of it. Which is what you're supposed to do? But then I think like you said before the game is being lost in this discovery. Moment of trying to be creative trying to change things. It's like when you're the relationship sometimes just doing the basics enough. You don't have to be too creative. It's just like on the basketball court. If co I contributed to the left elbow and pull up. Why is he going to do? The three spin moves in and do a heavy crossover. You know what I'm saying. It's just like do what works for your spot. Bang move on I think the NBA is at this point of discovery. Right right now. We're trying to be creative. They're trying to check all the boxes and figure out exactly the pros and cons of adjusting. The game changing the game trying to eight to gain more appealing to the casual fan. We you came on when I interview. Let me see when I interview you and dame a few years back Over dinner. I bought this up to you before this. This this is my proposal off. I feel like it. You know it goes back to what you said. What if Portland Miami play together together and you talked about the logistics the travel situation? That'd be of all route for both teams and I think we're I think there's definitely ways around schedule when that at and trying to make it as quickly as possible both teams. I'm in favor of you. Know this is not being proposed but look I believe that. Look if you want the top eight teams in each conference fine but let's do it and receive from there. You know that way you know so I I think the same way with all star game you know. I'm with with all stuck. Let me go back to that. That's what I was talking about. That is the All Star game less since there's no more East and West. Let's put the top twenty four players you know and regardless of east of West Conference. Just pick the top twenty four players because there's a lot of times when we talked about. The discrepancy in the conference is the star power. There's more star power in the West than the east. Okay the uh-huh let's not let's not limit a CJ mccollum player because he is a star player. Let's not let's not limit him and his chance acid his opportunities because he happens to play in the western conference. Let's not do it if if we really have taken away to East West subplot ah the All Star game with that has been the case over the last few years there okay get meet a top twenty four stars in the NBA. Let it be like I bet it's it's still should be the same. Issue should be eastward cause a bunch of players in the east who are not better than seven or eight players in the list and so you know we. There's just a lot more that brought that up because there was a lot more things that we could be changing That that will actually make sense. And I'm not saying saying that. What I'm doing is not making sense? I'd always been creative in trying to get the opinion of everybody. And a Lotta Times these things leak out to see how the public perception exception is going to go to take it. And so I get it but I don't get it. That makes me sir. Not I hear what you're saying. I think that's something that should be considered since everything's on the table. Will I think they should figure out logistics on what they would like to recede one through sixteen for the playoffs. I think you talk about people. Being able to watch gains people wanted to wager and gamble on Games. Could you imagine a first round matchup of eastern Western Conference. You imagine the excitement around the buzz around that because it's never happened before we've never been able to see that besides in the finals like you think about how fans would perceive that you think about how television networks were perceived that if if a eastern conference team because a chance to to be able to Wash Lebron and a playoff. Think about like when you're on the Western Conference you only child two east once so we're only going to New York once. We're only going to Miami once. We're only playing those teams once for those players star players from the West to be able to come back here and vice versa for East Eastern conference stars. I think a a lot of fans could appreciate that. So that's a good point. Something next should be brought up and then the receding in research strategizing of the All Star game. That's a that's a brilliant point point figuring out how to get the best players in the All Star game instead of instead of the equal equal value of amount of players from each conference offers. They've already strategized the draft aspect of televising the draft figuring out ways to make fans feel more included but now being able to just picked top twenty four players. I think you I think you might be onto something with that one. I think that would be cool. I'm just saying I'm not just saying that because that makes my chances better. I'm saying because I think it's all in good. You didn't agree with me a couple of years. If I recall correctly was chasing career I did it. Maturity People Change Times Change. And.
"cj mccollum" Discussed on Pull Up with CJ McCollum
"Personality explore splur- all of our jewelry watches and accessories at Store near you online ASCII DOT com. Okay back to the show looking at some of the other proposals. They're potentially trying to make do you think it's more realistic and easier for them. To execute the final four or having a playing game with nine and ten unseat good. Oh I'm so I'm sorry to analysis this is. This is a part of the proposal. Yeah I I'm sorry for being a pest to make with the situation with this topic I really far and I'm not wanting to be traditionalist and I don't you know I don't. I don't think what happened a hundred years ago. Just because right a hundred years ago means we gotta keep going just. Because I'm not all about that but I am with great great ideas you know. I am with Ideas that makes sense. So let's talk about the received here quick CJ. I have a hard time Tom believing that okay. Lack ten fifteen years whatever whatever it has been the western conference has been the the power conference. Okay so it doesn't look like that's going to change anytime soon. I have a real tough time believing that eastern conference owners will vote to rec- to play a Western Conference team. You know the round before reaching the finals. Why would a eastern conference owner approve of that? It makes no this like you WANNA give yourself a chance to get to the finals to play The Lakers the clippers. The Blazers the rockets. You know you wanNA give yourself you know when you get to that point you take your senses but why would you wanNA. Why would they want to you? See and play a Western Conference team the round before the finals. I don't get that I don't understand it. And then we get to the play a game. I Know James Hart said earlier earlier today like this college. What are we talking about here? A play a game. I mean you can make the case that we got too many teams in the playoff off already. Play a game. What what why? Why do they get a play? A game eighty two days. What enough could've happened that you know? Come on now up fair season like at a certain point we got like look. Can we stick to stick to the game of basketball stick to some some of the rules and guidelines that we have instead of implementing all these kind of loophole to get lube. Why do we need to look for a life so bottom let you go but you know in the Eastern Conference you know? There's a lot of people. Don't pay attention to the first couple of rounds of the eastern conference a less it deal is is involving those two teams 'cause usually about two hundred. They used to Congress who you think have a legitimate shot to win the title and most a lot of times only one of these accomplished. So why do we need another team in the playoff field has on business. There's not going to be able to compete for Charleston. It doesn't take me. I don't I don't get it. They're very interested in hearing your thoughts. Yeah my thoughts are along those lines. I would argue one thing go because we know the eastern conference historically hasn't been on par with the Western Conference in terms of record you look at the ACDC. Tim Seed in the East verses. Just eight nine ten in west historically there five sometimes four games under five hundred still having a shot at making the playoffs whereas there's there's teams in in the West who were eight games ten games over five hundred barely getting into the playoffs. If there's a receding chances are some of the eastern conference teams could potentially have a better record than the Western Conference Team Right which means they will be positioned to a host host. I game against the Western Conference team. which would make it interesting for from fan viewership standpoint but your argument is valid Comma Eastern Conference team owner? Her right why would I wanNA play a Western Conference team early when I don't have to like that makes sense in less. You're really confident in your team name or you're really just about your money. Because do you think people would pay more to see east versus West before the finals. That's what you have to kind of decide from ownership standpoint. Do you think fans would be more more eager to see Boston. Hypothetically played the clippers in the semifinals or the Blazers to play Miami. Even though that's a long oh fly with a lot of commuting back and forth. Do you think fans would be more excited about that. That opportunity to see it before the finals. I think they're looking at every angle of it. Which is what you're supposed to do? But then I think like you said before the game is being lost in this discovery. Moment of trying to be creative trying to change things. It's like when you're the relationship sometimes just doing the basics enough. You don't have to be too creative. It's just like on the basketball court. If co I contributed to the left elbow and pull up. Why is he going to do? The three spin moves in and do a heavy crossover. You know what I'm saying. It's just like do what works for your spot. Bang move on I think the NBA is at this point of discovery. Right right now. We're trying to be creative. They're trying to check all the boxes and figure out exactly the pros and cons of adjusting. The game changing the game trying to eight to gain more appealing to the casual fan.

I'm saying because I think it's all in good. You didn't agree with me a couple of years. If I recall correctly was chasing career I did it. Maturity People Change Times Change. And you start to get a better understanding of what you're seeing and not just the all-star stuff but I just came off a road trip where I was going for thirteen or fourteen days and I just flew from Chicago to Portland. I landed at one thirty five. Am I got home at two. Fifteen A M and I'm off today. This is considered in an off day and I play a game tomorrow. That was a long flight. But when you're in the playoffs the Games are spread out like you're not playing every day you know what I mean. There's a break in between Depending on how far you gonNA play some days. There's too sometimes. There's two games two days in between each game so there are technically ways to structure To where there's proper amount of rest in between games in the event there's travel from east to West and I think the furthest flights are obviously if you have to go to Miami from the West S. Coast. That's a long flight. You have to go to New York from the West Coast. That's a long flight but as it as it stands right now. There's only one team in New York that has a chance at making the playoffs. This season so would necessarily have to worry about that long trip right I see and I want to add this point. Cj to the receding of the the playoffs. And you said it would be good to see you know fans and see the heath versus the West and opening-round series. The problem I have with that the the only downside to that would be the quality of basketball because then you have a scenario where allied eastern teams are eliminated it quick fashion. So you're saying it would just be it'd be the West versus the West Toys R. APA has you know TV viewing problem now because now the east they like all our teams on in there. Why are we looking like who wants to see? La Oh la Oh Houston oh that's what happens. Cj I'm sorry we you do the repeating the team but joining him on are gone early.

"cj mccollum" Discussed on Pull Up with CJ McCollum
"What would it make a difference. The answer was was really know. I do think that you're going to see other states now. Start to be aggressive and make the same push. That governor didn't governor newsom in California have. Would you be surprised if let's say within a year or two years that most states did not try to create eight similar legislation. I think the NCW is pushing to get rid of this. They don't like the thought of this This is like their worst nightmare so I think they'll discourage universities around the country to to put this type of practice in place but I think the Ohio states of the World Old Middle America will definitely relish the opportunity to kind of create an even playing field with the California schools. You look at football. Football is most prevalent in the south. You got you got the Ohio states of the world. The I was the big ten and then you have the south with Clemson with Alabama MMA with all those types of schools so they're looking obviously at this twenty twenty three year this is going to be enforced and how many great football players could really take advantage of this deal and then how many maybe lower level division one players. Could maybe get a local endorsement deal or just be able to you. You know. Maybe it's a car dealership. Maybe it's a sneaker sneaker deal because the universities are already sponsored by the Nikes the UNDERARM CDs anyway so why not be able to get a little bit more. cash will decide from that as well. I totally agree and you know people smarter than me. I'll leave it to these these folks to figure out the distribution solution from let's say football and basketball to tennis and baseball or softball but I I don't know I didn't play Major College basketball but I spent my first two years at Seattle which was a scholarship school and I remember guys struggling like middle of the semester late semester to get money for food food because the scholarship money was only so much and it bothered me then it bothers me more now now that I've become more educated on it and and you mentioned Zion. I mean you know if he if he had I wonder for players like Zion's caliber of Zionists caliber and RJ Barrett. If these guys were getting paid. I wonder if it would impact them or maybe other players to stay in school longer. perhaps in football basketball because they felt more comfortable about their financial situation and that was maybe more induces to graduating or at least staying at school in the year two. What do you think I think guys would still gopro regardless of circumstances because it's still pennies on the dollar you know even if they're able to. Let's say they get a six-figure Cardo which is high end so the six figure sneaker deal which is on the high side of what a lot of these college athletes will be offered as amateurs if you go to the NBA or NFL You're being paid top dollar. You're making millions of dollars in their Garin in its guaranteed dollars over three years over two years over four years depending on the structure of the contract so you're not. GonNa turn down to fifteen million for three hundred thousand. Stay stay an extra year to stay an extra two years to make six figures when you're going to be making seven figures with a potential to make eight draymond and Lebron have obviously been very outspoken on this issue have you talked to any players though CJ that don't agree with this new law that are maybe saying you know what let me you push back on this besides Tim. Tebow going on TV saying that he did. He didn't want people accept money. He didn't agree with it. I haven't heard any current current players of Jek this mainly because you should be compensated for your work like if you're good at something and you have an opportunity to sell pants you look at their house state. Michigan rivalry get gold pans have these awards and rewards that are given out for victories. If you WANNA sell it this year item you can sell. If you WANNA sell your a big ten championship ring. It's your ring. You should be allowed to sell it and make money off of it because you worked for exactly and there's no other job in the world where you you perform. Moore paid in our paid for it. No one's no one's doing free labor exactly end and if you're if you're a regular student not a student athlete you're just at at Duke or you're at Washington. You're at Michigan. You're at Ohio state. You can do any of these things and not have to worry about it but if you're an athlete you do so if like if Coca Cola or Pepsi wanted to sponsors I on. Why couldn't he said let me let me take this deal? I mean not not all the senior companies as in soft drink. Makers are going to want to make deals like this. There's GonNa be a select group of players in both football and men's basketball that are going to have this opportunity. Andy and hoop far for us to say you know what you can't do that and the NCAA CJ I have been probably as critical as the of the NCAA as anyone It's President Mark Emmer. It used to be the president of U. Dub. We got to know him a little bit in Seattle. I thought he had good intentions. He's been very very clear that if you abide by this law for instance California schools there will be a punishment if they're the reason I asked if other states would get involved with this this legislation because the more states and more schools that do so the harder it is for Mark Emerton the NCAA to penalize a few select group of schools right and these schools are we're making so much money they can afford whatever bill is. GonNa throw at them. They want to try to find universities or whatever the case may be. They can afford it. I think people are getting so all caught up in the kids should be paid or kids shooting me paid. I think they should have the opportunity to explore it. If that's what they want to explore to to just take awaited opportunity completely is unfair especially when these universities are making millions of dollars and when these sponsors are generating millions and millions of dollars. I think think it's important that respective student athletes have an opportunity to benefit on their name and likeness. That's all they don't have to but they should have the opportunity to to decide if they want to. WHO ARE NOT IT'S UN-AMERICAN. It really is in the bedrock of college. Sports has been not paying athletes but this is just un-american to me. I I don't know how else to put. That's the simplest way let's not. Let's not pay the athletes but let's pay their coaches eight million dollars a year like come on yeah. I really I listen listen I will we'll be monitoring this. No question about it but I I'm. I'm happy to hear that we're on the same page I think most people most reasonable humans especially anybody that played sports in college could understand how how how much good this bill could do do okay so it's been a fascinating week for Blazer fans for the blazers because a camp but also because your teammate in all. Mba Point Guard in pull up guests Damian Lillard has had a few words exchanged wish Shaquille O'Neal. Have you noticed this J I have I heard the district mm-hmm when shack initially this dame dame told me about it said that he already made his response or whatever in the WHO's GonNa put it out shortly and he said he's GonNa go at it and that it wasn't anything personal just more so you know words in ramp like shack challenge him in the distant. He's going to challenge shack in a disk as a response was what it's what emcees in artists and like do and I think it was very competitive. obviously there's no real malice or beef towards one another but I think they really win at each other and and when a dame's funny bars all the money in the world trade issue for Penny and I think I think they both you know has some pretty solid lines but the funny part is that Dame ame really wraps. I think obviously shacks on platinum. He has a history of avenues hand in lots of different pots. He's an entrepreneur is an analyst on TV. He's a hall of Famer. He's one of the greatest players ever played the game and I think there was just confusion or maybe a mix up in you know how shack perceive an answer from Damon. I'm an initial button interview dame basically said I don't think people look at him as an artist people look at him shack. That's how I look at him as shocked a global figure and I think Jack took offence to the end. intern made a disown so I think it's it's good for the culture is it's good for both of them to be able to get back in the Bukit back in the studio and and and make art and I think it's good for fans to be able to listen to it in common judging Integra what they like better for what it's worth who who's distracted you think was better ed thought. Dame's we don't even think it was close but but I also don't think there's any malice shack he. He's not he's just a big lovable will guy like this is how he operates. I I met Jack. Cj when I was in must've been sixth grade and this is a crazy story that I've never actually told I must have been. Let's say eleven years old and I'm doing my homework in my bed or on my bed. I didn't even have it. I don't even think I had a desk and I'm basically let Sam reading writing and all of a sudden I hear footsteps right and I'm like what is going on. 'cause sound like it was almost felt like it was an earthquake and in. Seattle we had earthquake so us. That's what I thought and then out of the corner of my eyes see this massive human being walking to my room duck under the the door and and just kinda stroll role in and sit down on the bed to which almost broke and it was Shaquille O'Neal he and my dad had a had a good relationship and he would would come over whenever the Lakers were in town from time to time and have dinner he used to just eat loads of food and cake and he was so good to me as a kid that I just loved him for it but even then I will say I thought dame got the better of him and dames dames in his prime as a rafter shacks basically retired tired so I I am not surprised yeah I agree I think I think dame's wordplay was better. I think his punch lines bars better but I liked. The animation. Shack Shack. Put the little puppet there. He had some intimations he say he's a showman. He's he's definitely a showman and I look forward to seeing. There's a response. I'm not sure if she kill will responds. I'm not sure of Dane with a back to back drake style but either way. I look forward to seeing what happens and we don't have a game until Oh the twenty third so there's plenty of time for them to get into studio if need be they got about twenty one days until I first game. The real question is why do people feel feel the need to come at dame. Now I know that he went on Joe Biden's podcast and said he's a better rapper than shack but guys feel like they want to get the best of Dame and I'm not sure anyone has yet yeah. I don't know I think we live in a world now. Where people were very sensitive. People are very sensitive especially usually when when it comes to comparisons people don't like to be compared to others. They don't like for people to express their opinions on themselves. When it involves putting someone else down I think the last last time somewhat distant was Marvin and I think he was upset with something. Dame's interview or another and intern put out distracting they went back and forth for a while but it was more so in in play playful attacks jabs bars and in this this next case it was another instance insa where someone felt disrespected responded. We live in an era now where people are quick to respond to be angered. Quick the two one two one up the next. It's kind of funny to me that under the world has come to that but news to say I enjoy it and I hope he will continue to diss each other and make song so that I can have some entertainment in my spare time. CJ mccollum ever consider getting on creating attract. I'm not a rapper. I I have been boop loop before..

On Twitter on Twitter, so happy that he's throwing interceptions. I mean like no offence to the, you know, my fellow athletes out there. But you like who you like and in this case you like your team when you're playing against someone else, they are the enemy for that day. So if you happen to be quarterback or, or if you play an NBA Jordan, we were friends and I was watching your game and you air ball, but we were playing against you. I would laugh at you.

Remember how to play this magnitude how great is it that they're rallying behind trying to get him to stay?.
Warriors first to 5 Finals in row since 1966 Celtics
"Because for the fifth straight time, first time since the Boston Celtics of the nineteen six. With a couple of caveats there, the Golden State Warriors are in the finals for the fifth straight year. Factually, correct. No team has done it since the Boston Celtics of the sixties when the only eight teams in the NBA and it was a much easier path. Although you and I both believe had Michael Jordan been on a baseball sabbatical years. The bulls might have made it eight straight nonetheless, by the way, LeBron went to eighth straight. Four teams that he went to before and after they were pretty bad before he got there. So that's another impressive accomplishment. But this one is true. They've been there. They're doing it again and Mike, how they did it in the final three games of the Western Conference finals against the port trailblazers might be the most important point of this. I mean three games in a row now begin to seventeen down game three eighteen down game four last night in third quarter. Seventeen down come back all three times yesterday when they're down seventeen they go on a twelve run. Put it within five and, and the rest is history and a one nineteen one seventeen overtime win to me. It's been kind of two groups that have stepped up because we talked about this year, and we said this year if they didn't win the whole thing. Maybe we wouldn't be asked the prize because there was a little bit of dysfunction there early on, and they were losing big at home in games. And so we're wondering, okay is, is this the last year of it? Are they going to be end up breaking up? Is it not gonna go? While this year. And they've pretty much shut us all up, once Kevin Durant said, I'm Kevin Durant. He's been Kevin Durant. And then when he's been injured. Steph curry has taken over as looking like a league MVP right when he was winning that award in what he had done. So I think there were two groups the group of stars like Draymond like staff like a clay like Dahl Andrei dollar who didn't play last night who when, when Durant went out and everybody said oh, now they're not gonna win these guys all were like, wait a minute. We've done this before. We've won before and they're showing everybody that they've done that. And the other group, I think the role players now when they did it without Kevin Durant. There was a different group of role players that we talked about, and how well good they did. And we thought, oh man this now they're gonna be able to go to the benches thin team. I think those role players took it amongst themselves to say, wait a minute. You know what we get our opportunity we can get the job done. And I think CJ McCollum for the Portland set it best when he said their role players are star. Ars at being role players, which I think that line says it all they went eleven deep in an overtime game in a close game. They were trusting highs even if they were on the court for three minutes, they were trusting these bench guys to get the job done in these guys doing it. Listen, that's the amazing thing about this, and we can talk about staff, and we can talk about training, who by the way. I as been absolutely fantastic. Playing incredible since Kevin Durant went down again. Kevin Durant went down before game six of the Western Conference semis. Against the Houston Rockets and they have won five straight. They've won five straight games since arguably the best basketball player on the planet right now because we'll Broncos nicked up. This wasn't as full force. Kevin durant. Is that guy as he said, I'm Kevin Durant? I'm Kevin Durant. They lose him. And they're like, so, and they go on and take down five straight games and sweep the Portland trailblazers out of it in

"Relaxing at my desk. Just watch the the ending of the Indiana Pacers raucous game as Monday night, great finish the deal some big shots once again, but apparently play the Milwaukee Bucks. Tomorrow. We got a long stretch of games here. We play four and six nights for the second consecutive week. A lot of great teams were facing this week bucks clippers box clipper, Celtics, Celtics. Yeah. So we got a nice drink a games here. A nice three games here. I'm really looking forward to plan. Without further ado, obviously, Jordan is on as always you've got a special guest who will be calling in a little bit later big Knicks fan as a spoiler alert. There's some movement around the NBA Tyson Chandler signing with the Lakers lady on bells tweeting he's leaving Miami. And hope so potentially returning to the Steelers at some point recast be show. Cam God of the week with one of the nastiest sham God's I've seen of to this point. And my Brown's lose again. Great week great week. Honestly, I like how you just kinda subtly got that in their Browns lose again. But don't worry. Everything's fine. Yeah. Everything's fine. We we don't have the worst record in the NFL. We've already Elazig I went total from last season, and we're competing and we lost to the chiefs. So it's almost like it doesn't even count. I mean, it doesn't count. But you know, what does count that Shammgod from Mr. Caspi that was disgusting completely unexpected. I did not know that he he had that at all. I mean, mostly this guy is, you know, a reserve score makes them threes dribble pulled up, but that Shammgod was legit any finish. What we were thought. I was surprised when I see it on Twitter. Honestly, I didn't know who was I was thinking like who is this sham guiding and noticed noticing that it was on Caspian then the finish as well. Just made it so much better and thought process behind this is. Has he been practicing this sham God? And did he let his teammates know that? I'm gonna be breaking this sham. Got out at some point. Was it just totally unexpected and just a natural reaction to account or to the defense. Yeah. Well, how hard is a sham got to execute. Because personally, I've never even tried it out of fear of embarrassment. What's the CJ McCollum sham? Got in have you ever executed in a game? I do have a sham guy. But I haven't done it in recent memory, maybe a couple years ago and accident, you know, kind of coming up the court, but right if you're able to change direction fast, or you have your defender leaning or committing to one way you can't pull it off. You know, allow Russell Westbrook did a nasty sham guide on Zeller last week to finish the week off for the game to each sham. Got him to put the put them up four or five which was impressive that he had the guts. Obviously, he's a fearless player who doesn't fear anything in general, but to see him sham got at the end of a game and finished a layup. Just kind of shows you how policy is under under pressure. Well, I mean the. Mr. Shammgod himself was legitimately one of the best ball handler is ever providence. Obviously was somebody that worked with Kobe Bryant on his handle. He's just an incredible ball. Handler. It's a beautiful move in. There are different interrelations of it. My biggest thing for usage as if you can find a way to incorporate the sham got into your arsenal. One time this year. I would be remiss if I didn't say, thank you. All right. I will think about adding got in if it's necessary if I can pull it off in a timely manner and not turn the ball over make a play out of it. I will consciously think about it's such a dope move though. Like, it's it really it. Just looks awesome. It is. But you have to execute it properly. I think that's the biggest thing forcing it forcing it. It doesn't turn out as well. You have to make sure you execute it timely needs to be a necessary counter move based on the defensive reaction. And if it's offense and you pull it off. Well, then chances. All your breaking defender's ankles. Well, you said last week with Kemba that when you get a big switched on you..

"Pull up at checkout, give it a try in. Thank me later. We have to discuss the fact that you're in hall of fame. Congratulations once again on make it to the hall of fame, it's congrats man. Thank you. I appreciate it. As Katie says, it's basketball heaven, it's basketball, heaven, man. So. What were your thoughts when he first got the call that you're going to be in a hall of fame in at one point? I think I think we all go through this face. At what point did you think in your career? Like I have hall of fame numbers of could have gun. I'm a hall of Famer because you are a hall of Famer. I would say semi early on to your career like it was kind of written like, all right, he's going to be a hall of Famer his numbers or crazy. He's winning. He's been MVP. Multi all-star, like list kept going on and on. So kind of walk me through your mindset and then just, you know how it feels now when you heal your name, Steve Nash hall of Famer. The weirdest thing I hope this doesn't sound like arrogant at all. Not like I'm incur honor. It's unfathomable to be a kid from the west coast of Canada. You know that basketball's last one I play. I started playing eighth grade thirteen years old that you know that I that I'm in the hall of fame incredibly critically honored because of all the great great players influenced me not only as as my idols, but influenced me indirectly because they influence the ones that came after them and someone else so forth until my era of. No, and respecting the history of the fabric of our score and what a beautiful sport in history is. So having said that he knew and you can probably relate in some respects that everything's like a natural progression innocence even though like you're fighting tooth and nail every day. Like I like that freshman year to go from Cancun them all of our court conference from maybe like I didn't have time in the moment to like really sit down and be like, wow, look when I did. You know what I mean? I was like back in the gym because I knew I also like, you know, we went on Arizona's beat them the next week. I wasn't a fully formed product. I, I think I made. I was like one of five or six from the field and made six free throws of eight and a last minute kinda seal it. Yeah, it was probably a past and a pain in the ass and the creative player about, you know, playing against those pros and Arizona. We probably have five or six pros and the team you. I still knew. I had some ground to make up. You know what I mean? I knew I could get there, but I had some ground to make up and similarly, Kansas experience. And so I was right back in the gym. There was. Like I still, I'm like on floor one. I need to get too far six, you know, kind of thing. So that was my mentality that underdog mentality every day stay with me my entire career. But the reality is you go from, you know, can't get the ball over half car to playing a lot more to starting to prospect being drafted to, you know, becoming a starter becoming all star to, you know, the playing. I for me, never got to the finals a player in the conference finals. I don't know four or five times and playing a ton of playoff teams, your rack up numbers, and we play a long time and all these accolades and it just because one of those things where. Everyone tells you right? Like I never thought like I might making off, but just never crossing mind like sacrilege. Just even think in those terms was I'm gonna underdog, get up, get there early, get your work done to shut up and play, and so, but everyone starts to you're going in the hall of fame on the elephant. So after after a while, you know people reference to you in articles or whatever our interviews of sitting here with future hall of Famer. And so after awhile, you become a little bit numb to like like, that's just that's your that's reality. You know what I mean? So I know I know exactly what you mean. Yeah, and I, it's like you when someone says you like CJ McCollum averages twenty two points a game when the NBA you don't like hear that stop and go, wow, right..

You look up to the Barbara's and the people that's that's out here getting it. And I think it's important that we explain to the kids, there's different avenues of different ways to to be successful and don't have to be sports, don't have to be on the block and this other ways to to be involved in pharmaceutical sales without without pushing wait on this on the corner. So I think that you know storytelling, his great being able to tell kids that look, I was the best player in my hood wasn't even close. Like, you know how many like, you know how many Michael Jordan's out there that just didn't make it like how many CJ McCollum is out there that just. Didn't make it like there's a lot of it was nicer to me like. Well, so you can. You can go to jail and have an NBA trial. You can go to right now. One hundred people out of prison and bring them to the NBA Tom vegetarian three. I'm to make anything on God. Don't like hundred percents. This is crazy. And when you tell those stories, like unless you grew up in the hood closer to hurt, you don't believe it, but like us being there, hoping the playgrounds being like, you know, he's way nicer to me, but I got a full ride scholarship. You know what I'm saying is crazy how life works, but it's been able to share those stories. Man is it can change in all it. All it takes to change. One kid's like went for me. Eric snow came Eric's how to camp he brought by. So maybe being see each no come from my hood and make Keith McLennan. All those people, you know, six, three guard. Then he brings a I camp, but I see. Look, I write in his is a is a good six foot and a half life. I can get this six foot. And I get that like, like you able to realize dream just off seeing somebody like up closely. It humanize AI to me like, hey, I was a mythical creature until I got to see him in person. I'm like, okay, he's six foot. He skinning on sand like what he had dog. And I'm like, if I'm a dog, so I if I can get to six foot like I can get to the league. So I think it's, I think it's important man. We continue to share these stories with kids and just let them know that there's a different way we don't have to will all have to take this row in hoop. We'll have to take this route on the blonde in. It's just different stuff we can accomplish, and I break down. I want to keep you longer. I break it down home when I go, you know, even like, okay, me. I don't have no about coat. You're gonna get up to. But I, I said he did the drug them to up to the fact that he was feeling hurt. I look guys think his spammy. Okay, so bad. We think cans for him. So what can I be to take my family without selling drugs? You know what I'm saying? So it's something good. It's something good in everything you don't you. So when I look at when you look at them, you know, Georgia's, that's, that's. That's what I got out of up about his on 'em, put their families, all of them live nicer. That's what I, I wouldn't even think about the selling jobs for because the first time I tried that my friends civil from coded went for me when I was seeing that young again kids, so I never really sold drugs. I was always around, but. When you explain it to these kids and break it down like that on the stand that you know what I'm saying?

"Some of the things I've heard play. Some of the things I've said to a referee compared to Serena said it's not even close. Just looking at other male tennis players, how they talked the referees, how they slam rackets, how it's perceived when they take their shirt off versus how a woman does it and she gets points. I, I think it's all sex, and I think this is the first time I've seen teammates openly speak out of another guy's contract situation. Literally comment on his pockets that's golden. I think for them to criticize him, a guy who's trying to do what's best for him fit for himself and his family, you have to support that shelter. The Cleveland Browns credible atmosphere. First game of the year. It was a roller coaster. Ride of emotion. Defense was great. Myles Garrett looked also things that war was great year. We turn his franchise around. Welcome to the Kobe Bryant edition of pull up. That's right. Number twenty four. I'm currently in west linn Oregon back out of the crib for a few days of working out or should I say a few weeks until training camp feels good to be back at the house? A lot of boxes and a lot of packages we just passed up are we just had our first football Sunday in the books. I was at the Cleveland Browns game. It was super, super dope experience. Jordan's been hating on me about the says. It's very Brown's, like of us. So without further do we have to welcome Jordan on as always discuss this Browns game fives must mytalk mytalk with the team. Actually, it didn't talk to the team. I loved how you were parading around the stadium, like you're a flanker receiver. I mean your your passion for that team is is remarkable. However, as our producer Matt pointed out before the segment, if you just watched the CJ McCollum Instagram, not only would you thought the Browns won, you would've thought they won by thirty. So it will point. I mean, 'cause it was. It was a crazy game. There are a ton of turnovers and then they had a misfield goal late. So it will point. Did you realize that this thing was actually going to be close and and then a point, I guess, did you realize that that you come to the realization that you know you're not gonna win? You're not gonna lose. It's a tie like what? What was your feeling on that? Because to me, that's almost more disappointing, but I, I don't know. Yeah, honestly, first of all, show to the Cleveland Browns shout the juice Josh on under squad, man. I appreciate the Browns hospitality allow me to come on the field Jumbotron action. On the social media, you Salata love in general, and I'm a loyal fan, true fan bene- fan for a long time. So this is no bandwagon talk. I've been. I've been here just want to start off by saying that the vibes were incredible. It was incredible atmosphere. First game of the year little bit rainy.

Nature being part of a super team I think that's disgusting is to stay You heard is disgusting it's is it really. Disgusting to be part of a super team that when he says disgusting he's talking about DeMarcus cousins he's. About Kevin Durant someone all those guys I can't, think of a more hit. Hypocrisy how can I. Let's hit hypocritical statement Are you kidding me listen to understand. This from CJ up in. Portland every single free. Agency year he's doing out. Tweets he's the one phone. Calls he thought out messages he's trying to recruit mellow. He's trying to. Recruit Katie he's trying to get these guys come up to Portland ain't nobody go ain't nobody going sort of fact that he has a problem with this. Just because it's not happening in Portland just because it's not happening where. He is I, am a KOMO CJ Let me come on bro you can like you. Gotta kill this because? Everybody knows if you had the opportunity you will, go out and you want to get the best. Players on your team to. Play with and especially. Now because that's the only. Chance and opportunity you have. To win so I it's almost like I'm taking my, ball I'm going. Home I'm gonna I'm gonna cry a fuss essentially just because I couldn't get it my way but every single geared guys wanna get guys at the Portland. And they're just not going CJ McCollum says on Twitter you says that y'all stay bringing up old. Stuff y'all got here looking like a bitter x one of the best teams. Ever assembled with two players you could argue are. The two top. Fifteen greatest. To lace them up four hall, of famers with another one on the way, I'm happy stop making me look like a scorned man Sheesh from CJ McCollum on Twitter Well here's the thing CJ that you've got gotta understand in. This era in two thousand. Eighteen your era of two thousand eighteen you know the difference between the nineties, and now this era Ryan the difference. Is is that in the nineties. Jews would get on the on the on rich and famous and beyond MTV cribs, and like look. How much money I gotta look all of my car is looking, all my women and I'll to look at me you're in two thousand eighteen there are guys that want to be able to not only have generational wealth but also they, care about their legacy they want to be a. Champion this is a no shot at at. Reggie, Miller, or those stay with a. Franchise their entire career but in two thousand eighteen? Whoever. Reggie Miller would be the, equivalent then twenty eighteen day where you're moving someplace. Else too because they want to increase their. Chances to win back in the day players would trust. General managers and trust ownership or I know you're gonna build me a championship I know you're gonna give me. A championship I oh I. Know I'm staying here I'm loyal now now. Now it's about you it yes You. Have the money but now you wanna be able to get a, championship want to be in a position to win if you're in ization does not have the commitment to winning you have the right to leave when you're free agent the, under the under word in free agency is free. You can be free to go wherever you. Want, to, and that's what some of. These guys are. Doing I can't blame them for? That Jay everybody looks. Up and says I don't want to be the. Next? Call Malone I don't want to be the next Charles Barkley the next John Stockton great players amazing players, I mean. EMMY top talents that we. We can argue down to this day but the. One, thing missing like you just brought out a ring as an athlete. A guy at that? Type of stature you've got ten to twelve years, well let's just even, chop it down you got, ten years of playing on? High level why wait until your body is dead and. Beat up to not, go get the most out of your career Kevin Durant this. Move for him going Golden. State has been nothing but success for him obviously he took a little bit of a hit in the public public, I but guess what when you look back down in down the line ten years from now are. You going to say, is that katie's a champion all you're. Going to say that Katie is a winner CJ McCollum don't beat like you said dopey that bitter ex dopey. That do that just because you didn't win you didn't, get a chance to play with the best unit. Get to see what the NBA Finals, hadn't store because it's going to Golden State it. Goes to LeBron it goes to those other guys other than yourself that it's a, bad deal. For what, they did so I almost, feel like dude I'll just like like, straight up CJ like I feel like he's playing to the crowd I feel like, he's playing to the fans it's a, hot take I get it I. Like, it but like do don't be. That guy he's he's that guy right now he's. Really? Thinking that the Dickerson and hood on ESPN radio on the ESPN app Brian Hyland's infra JD I'll go, was the. Further by saying that if. Don't be like some fans that will say well. Why, is why is DeMarcus cousins and why is Kevin Durant or why. Are these players going? To gravitate to one team because they will increase, their chances of winning, don't be that guy I, mean this is a brotherhood? In the NBA don't don't diss other guys themselves in. A position to win that's all I'm saying just like procedure McCollum here's the thing. If you're going to be. That guy you're gonna speak speak that way then stay with Portland your entire career and see What's it gonna be like to be a bridesmaid every single, year, Portland leases in the mix at? Least get to the playoffs? And I think that there that's a step in the right direction but Portland's opposition to be anywhere in? The stratosphere of how. The Lakers, are looking right now how they look in a couple of years gone cedar Houston Portland's a good. Team but they're not a championship team and. So I don't. Think you should throw shade at all, unless you're going, to be a. A trailblazer for life or good luck with that So so straight up so let's analyze Portland last year front runners. Yup, third seed in the west. Made a lot of noise good regular season team. Got into the playoffs and got. Eaten alive they got. Exposed they look like a one man team Damian Lillard was getting trapped in Preston and had, to play through a crowd embodies all series, long, and he was not willing to. Or he couldn't trust whatever that whatever, dilemma was the rest of the players on his team against the pelicans without DeMarcus cousins might I add with aging regime Rondo who hadn't had. A really successful season since the Celtics put out okay and that's, that's my guy but all they did is play hard against them all they did is expose, them so now you're fussing now if CJ, was fussing, after this was a team, that went to the Western Conference. Finals or if this was the Houston Rockets saying oh we don't respect what they did I might have a chance to listen but you got knocked out in the first round you going out like front runners and now you got more excuses that's why more like komo c._j. come on dog you need to be an elaborate now yeah just don't worry about everybody else you don't want to be able to go to a championship team that's fine you think you'd build one portland that's fine too i mean you gotta try understand that but as you try don't try to set aside the compliments of boogie cousins or kevin durant whoever else wants to be part of a championship team i just think that's that's unfair and it's really really petty don't don't do that you try and get headlines tool but it's just petty the university of maryland took full responsibility for the death of jordan mcnair we will discuss that also want hear ryan starts on the maryland situation as well dickerson hood on e._s._p._n. radio.

"Why had the dog out out like like that stat about i feel like there's an interesting connection with cj mccollum coming from the trailblazers you have aldridge leaves the trailblazers to come to the spurs to join up with coli and he may get left holding the bag and all this yeah that is actually quite possible that that that totally gay it happen if you are lavar exalted you look around you see that the one thing though they always said about markets in portland no was he was not comfortable with the way that the franchise promoted damian lillard is being kind of the face of those things and yellow markets has managed to make some sort of peace but they bite said out of their lorries argest like finally i get the ball first every time i don't see what the big deal is then squad there in portland before he left manila that they were not the thing that's going to have to hurt for the spurs too long as is and will never know what was going to happen in a seven game series right like we'll never know the full extent of it but they were like twenty five points kuwa got hurt in that game at golden state and they look like they had a chance to win that series they did like they looked to be that good with kuwa now again it's only like a half what what three quarters of basketball a two and a half quarters the basketball that we had so you can't extrapolate bus so much but that never stops you win is what if right they were definitely in a what if situation there and who knows if he does not get hurt their do they possibly win a championship what does that mean for what the rest of the roster is.

"And some charity work you can donate just donate to my exactly is that something that you can tell kevin exactly no i'm definitely going to tell them that the next time you want to get out of the game just think about cj mccollum dream centers that were provided for kids all what cj mccollum press pass and we can provide them with better resources like we already have the coating the coding class in place where we're providing coding instructions and now we can do more advanced things with the extra money katie is gonna provide for us absolutely okay all right that's good to know number three jeff hornicek said the triangle offense turned off free agents to the knicks last year is having a better offense a big deal or not a big deal to potential free agents nah i think having a better off it it's definitely a big deal free agents especially depending on the play calling schema team has in place skin can alternately dictate the player you look at okay see having to change their offense for paul george a little bit putting in pinned down putting in flares allow him the rump pick and rolls and putting russ off the ball as a free agent you have to look at the roster the coaching style you have to look at the play calling skin schematic movements of the flow in figure out how you fit in i think versatility plays a factor in that in the triangle is a little outdated honestly i think that a little on the triangle very outdated it's easy to run and try and go when you got michael jordan scottie or shack and coby to lot harder when i try and go and in this new era of nba where's for men who can shoot threes and bring the ball up and there's centers who can guard one through five is just so much going on now in the nba you have to keep up with the with the time so you get left behind also part of what and i don't call the triangle the knicks run i call it the rectangle i mean the thing is so disjointed it's so unorganized i i i'm in new york i've probably seen forty at least forty nick games this year they they don't even run it right but part of what running it right is and you correct me if i'm wrong.

"Oh back to the bassett game got a little jump hook hit the mid range shot blocked shots controls the paint area it's it's floaters only basically with him in the lane floaters frankly in quick lays i think his ability to do both those things in a limited amount of time gives him you know valid argument like why why aren't are playing at indy games unless he can't make free throws i don't see why shouldn't be out there but again it's not my team it is worth noting that he did say that he regretted the how we handle it he was frustrated he's also making about twenty four million a year which is far and away the most so there is a lot of pressure on him to perform so we'll certainly monitor that they will be a playoff team and if they are going to have any success it'll probably because of him our number two kevin durant has been injected five times a season which is not only most in the nba cj but tied for the most since two thousand one kevin durant newfound temper big deal or not a big deal i don't really think it's a big deal yet honestly i know kate he's one of the nicest guys out there so the see that he's getting jetted from games it's kinda surprising i gotta talk to him about giving away all that money though if he wants to donate money he can surely give to the boys and girls clubs and the cj mccollum dreams centers that we're trying to provide for for young kids young underserved kids in the community but with that being said i just feel like maybe he's just tired of the regular season and wants to get ready for the playoffs and kind of get a break from these games and he's saying a lot of words gernot supposed to say a lot of trigger words that the rest that the refs no and that we know us players that leads technicals and last game he said about three or four in a row and you know but that being said goodbye while he did say on the simmons pod that you are the most underrated tough cover in the nba so when you talk to them about it you can say listen i appreciate the kind words just so you know if you want to get involved.
