"Been locked into you ever since I got serious. XM Satellite Holy now, with 855 to 1 to four, CBS. And a big thank you to everybody who tunes in Veer Sirius XM Channel 206. Thank you so much. Appreciate you okay? Yeah, Things are a little tricky here. You think about the Western Conference in the NBA, the Lakers in the playoffs. They're common, currently tied with the Phoenix Suns 11 Dallas Mavericks man. They just beat up one of well in and beat him up, But they beat the Clippers and now they have a tuo lead and histories but one of the teams that were used to seeing in the playoffs over the past several years. They didn't even make it. The Golden State Warriors. Steph Curry is in the M V P conversation because he just basically played out of this world, but it wasn't enough to get the war years into the playoffs. There was no clay Thompson. Draymond green Draymond green things He's scored in a limited capacity, but he played defense. He rebound he helped set up the offense. You think about a younger player? Wiseman. Ended up hurt had his own ups and downs this season. And so I just don't see a way. Where other teams they're going to be on the ascent. Where the Golden State Warriors just moved back into title contention. I believe Steph Curry is going to go ahead and sign his extension. But I don't think that's going to be enough to just say Poom this This is a team that's going to compete for a title. I don't think so. I think those days with the Warriors are pretty much done. What do you say? 855 to 1 to four CBS? I want to take your calls, and then we'll take a break. I'll get you the news. And then before I roll out, I'm gonna share conversation I had with adults and rising her. In a special guest adults in place for the Denver Broncos. But let's get to your calls. Right now. We got Andrew. He's calling up from Alaska. Andrew, you are CBS Sports radio. A J R. I gotta say, I think they're the Clipper Show is where the warriors were done. Um, I had sucks because they were so much fun to watch. They were all flash them. Of threes from from half court. The No. Look passes 1 40 games. I love them, but When they lost Kevin Durant that that was they needed a generational star to keep him going. As Barkley said, Mr Triples, single Dreamin Easy is not doing anything for him anymore. Clay's always hurt I love him, but we we got to start writing the eulogy. Well, damn, you're ready to just bury the entire team. Hi, Andrew dust, and that's a tough I got nothing but love for him, But yeah, they're done. Okay. Damn, Andrew. Thank you. That's kind of somber there. Let's go to Richmond. Talkto Hayden Hayden, You want CBS Sports radio. Do you see the Golden State Warriors is a team that's just gonna bounce back. Well, J R. I completely disagree with my man Andrew previously called great being on the show. Um, I think you look at the Clippers right now Look what they just did. Bob Myers has potential to make some great moves if they potentially collapse in these playoffs. Paul George. Maybe Colli. He's a free agent. They could make a move. Bring another guy. I know it's tough right now with their cap situation, But you got to keep an open mind. I don't think the run is over. They were 37 26 with carry on the floor. This is still a good basketball team. They just need another piece. Okay? I think it's still gonna be tough. Well, it's obviously going to be tough. But I think it's hard to replicate what you what you've done in the past. I can't see Draymond Green and proving as a basketball player as he ages. We have no idea what the situation is going to be with. Clay Thompson when he returns. Yeah. You don't lose your shooting stroke, but you know it. Is he gonna be adorable? Is he gonna be able to move around the same type of way You have to hope that Wiseman can improve. And then you talk about potentially bringing in another star. Well, I mean, damn it. We got a guy and Luca Don church who looks like he's just kind of dragging the Mavs into Ah super competitive space. He's just dropping. 39 night, So I think there are a lot of factors there that would just boat against. You know the war years just having another run, but we'll see. Yes, they will see, but I absolutely think this team's got it. Okay, Well, they got one of the best shooters if they got the best shooter of all time, Thank you. Hating for calling up from from Richmond Keenan this calling from Atlanta Georgia. Keenan, you are C B s sports radio. Hey, I know is they are thanks for having me, man, and, uh, All right. Kind of my guys got the phone on. I kind of agree with the guy before, Um, great minds me. He's washed up. I feel like we can get him to a team who Every get something for him and also, But, you know, I feel like the Warriors definitely have a chance to get another ring just because I say that because I look at how the warriors started. They started from curry being this rookie. He ended up progressing and then end up being claimed they had focused and they had a lot of big players, and I feel like they just need that one. Well, maybe one. Thing, wantedto adjustments, you know, get rid of gray Ma to get a big guy before. And who can score just as much as Clayton. And, um, uh uh, Curry. You know, like a young kids kind of player. Everybody okay, so get just basically just end up with another M v p. So Uh, that Z. Oh, yeah. Okay. It might be hard to do. That's why I think they might be screwed. I mean, they might as well just You know, beg and plead for Kevin Durant to come back. But is it a possibility? Keenan yet is it's It's a tough road. It's It's one thing to say. Well, we need a Yokich type player. Well, Yokich is probably gonna walk away with the M V P. Chris is here from Miami, Chris you on CBS Sports radio. Hey, how you doing, man? Loving the show. I think that don lemon or bone sports radio. But anyways, I'm gonna I'm going to say that. Yeah, I think they haven't have Ah. A chance to, you know, make a run for a test. You know who's going to be a free agent this year is gonna be quiet. Leonard and I heard even a state say something about him. Him him coming to Miami. He might might might want to go to the Warriors to, um What can I just touch up on that and I'll listen to you. Okay..

"Of structural changes to try to make this game or entertaining. Have tried to add incentives. They tried to add money. But of course to these guys. That money is literally what those guys gamble on a few hands in the high rollers room at night like it doesn't It doesn't make any difference in the world. Whether or not they win the game, so you could put all the gimmicks that you want these teams. Don't know the bragging rights are totally there, and they've tried to add some spice with the captains and have gone away from Eastern Conference versus Western Conference. What have you, But to me, the whole idea seems a bit antiquated. First of all, have you noticed what's going on in the N B a this year? Aside from obviously over the last 10 years, the stars all aligning on the same teams and conspiring to figure out how to years when their contracts are up how they can play together. Watch very closely what's happening with New York because I think for once the Knicks are gonna be able to lure a star or two over the next two years. I'd watch that very closely. I'd watch for Other stars that are ready to roll out of their towns and existing towns where they can't win. Be very cognizant of that might be a power shift to the NBA. We're Brooklyn and New York. And Philly. Could be your hot spots again, as opposed to all the West Coast teams, but we'll find out I feel like With scoring the way it is, And I think the February numbers are all time records you have the most 30 point scores ever. In the month of February in any month, But it happened to be the month of February. Think he had seven players that were scoring over 30 game in the amount scored over 20 fives never never been close. You're getting more possessions than ever before. In these games, So scoring is on the rise. It's kind of tough to evaluate the younger players because now they'll come in and they're scoring more than any other sets of young players have ever score before. Remember, this was supposed to be a Horrendous draft. And then you see what Lamell a ball is doing, putting up almost looking like a superstar right now, and he was supposed to be raw and a project. And that guy has come in and he scoring with ease. In the NBA. So the league is looking different. So you would tune into the All Star game to see things that you wouldn't otherwise see. You'd watch it because You get to see these superstars be able to do things with the ball and with space. And be able to put their high flying acts on display now. We see that in the regular season, we're seeing a ton of that. Really, If you watch the bubble last year, it wasn't the Hallmark N B. A defense that you've come to know once you get later. In sequence in the NBA playoffs. Nothing like it. Now, that was the bubble. We'll see how it translates this year. When you actually have to go on the road and perform in front of sold out crowds could be very different Feel But The more and more I watch the regular season in the NBA. Where the rap has always been of the criticism is always been. Hey, these guys don't play defense, and that's true. To a certain extent. I mean, when the games were close Teams do buckle down, but I'm watching teams get game winning dunks with nobody getting in the way. Shout out to the Cavs verse, the Hawks. The Cavs have a no name or getting a dunk with the game on the line, and nobody rotated over like you're seeing more and more of that. Well, that's the stuff you see in all Star games. So if I'm already seen in the regular season, what exactly am I being treated to Any All Star game. Not to mention These guys are all just getting open threes anyway. So what's it gonna look like differently in an All Star game? And furthermore, we already see all these players play with and against each other. In the span of like five years. Look at how the landscape changes almost every year or every other year, the least When it comes to superstars like I've already seen Kevin Durant to play with James Harden, Russell Westbrook. Ah! Steph Curry, Clay Thompson Draymond Green. And now with Kyrie Irving like we're already seen All Star games. During the regular season. And so the novelty is kind of gone. When it comes to this, so it's a little unfortunate as I used to look forward all NBA season to get to that point where we have an All Star weekend. And now the game means nothing not only to the fans, but the players don't even want to be a part of it this year. And so I'm wondering if the NBA could put on a good show. This is always fun Branding. This is always where stars are born in the dunk contest. Remember, Ma now All the great stars from Michael Jordan did Dominique To Kobe Bryant. Vince Carter. The All Star weekend. Used to mean something. I'm just not sure. It adds up at this point, which a little unfortunate is used to be the stuff that I'd get into for years and years and years and just a Sign of changing times in the sports landscape 855 to 1 to four CBS That's 4 to 27. I wanna know there's all Star weekend have any juice whatsoever. Do a lot of the fans out there now. Coming up at 10 40. We're gonna talk to Matt Verte Rommie. NFL writer for fans sighted because we have to keep up with the NFL quarterback roller coaster. And I'm a little concerned. About what's going on in the NFL today and how it might.

'New Legacy,' New Lola: Why 'Space Jam' wanted to do better by one Tune

"On on the new space Jam Way Got lots more information on the new space camp film called Space Jam. A new Legacy film stars LeBron James playing himself who has a young son Dong, who wants to become a game developer. They get trapped in a digital world by a rogue A I. And it's upto LeBron Bugs Bunny and the rest of the tune squad to get them out of there against the evil goon squad. It has also been reported that Space Jam, too, will have a slew of N B A and W NBA stars including Damian Lillard, Anthony Davis, Clay Thompson and Shinobu McKay. He also got a first look at the re imagines, Lola Bunny, filmmaker Malcolm Lee told Entertainment Weekly about the re fresh quote. It's important to reflect the authenticity of strong capable female characters also said that this film is a better movie than space jam. All right, let's go. Better than the original space jam. That is a lofty goal. I believe it when I see it. LeBron James, though, is not even on the best team in the NBA right now. As of right now, that title goes to the Utah Jazz. The Jazz are 27 9 on the season. The next best teams in the league have 24 wins, so it was probably odd for them, at least when the two jazz players who are reserved for the NBA All Star game, Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert were picked dead last in the All Star draft by team captains LeBron James and Kevin Durant. James said it was because he never played as the Utah jazz and video games when he was younger. No shade. Though the Jazz is most recent game was a lost, however, to the Philadelphia 70. Sixers and things got heated on the court. Mitchell was injected with 30.5 seconds left in overtime. He smashed a cooler as he left the court. Both he and go bear had words for what they thought was bad officiating in that loss. They were then each fined for being critical of the rest. Mitchell $25,000 and go bare $20,000. All the drama. Remember when artist said today? Oh god. McKay was in Space Jam. She's also in this Ah, conversation with Rudy Gobert, as he reflects on the season and his legacy. First of all, we have a great group of guys. You know, Like, Like I just said, when you have a group of a guy that's willing to sacrifice for one another and do all the little things to make each other better. You know, your team just go from here to here and, you know, obviously we have a lot of talent We have. Ah, Very good coach. We were pushing staff and I think we were very dumping a team up with both hands. You know, we still got ourselves. We still think that we are defensive team. You know, I'll just friends is gonna be what separates us from being good for being great. And we just don't embrace it. You know, we have. Ah, Wei have another talent and a lot of guys that can step up for a minute. When it comes to your

"Home loan process. Rocket can We'll do some NFL in MBA over the course of the next two hours, maybe have some fun with some other stuff I haven't been on since over the weekend, so I could give my thoughts on Tiger Woods and boy what a terrible situation that has been, but I want to begin. With the MBA. And I mean, really, I want to begin with baseball. But since I'm doing it as if we're being honest, I want to begin with baseball and they had getting warmed up. But this will do the national show. I have to begin with the embassy, so we'll talk some Lakers and jazz and look, it's been Rough stretch here for the Lakers as they've now fallen to third in the Western Conference. They've lost what, four straight games and, um I've been struggling clearly. And without Anthony Davis, How could you really judge and I feel like people and I get it. We're in alone Sports world So people trying to come up with the stuff here to get us going. Through, at least till March Madness. So we're overreacting now to the Lakers without Anthony Davis. What do you want from him? I mean, now, all of a sudden, we're supposed to go nuts. Because the Lakers look like whole They're struggling and what they're gonna do when they don't plenty deep end. Yeah, well, If they lose Anthony Davis. They're not gonna win the NBA title. I mean, it's a simple is that they can't do it as greatest. LeBron is, but not winning the NBA title without Anthony Davis. There, they need both. That's why he went there. That's why LeBron recruited them to go there. That's a man trying to win championships. Get that those two guys together. There's not a Brooklyn Nets situation where they have a big three and on any given night. Two of those guys can carry the team. They need. Anthony Davis that is their big to LeBron and 80. So I mean, why is anybody surprised that the Lakers struggling? I mean, losing four straight probably shouldn't happen. Getting their rear ends kicked by the Utah Jazz who are just on fire. I mean, Utah, 26 6 on the year. Um, you know, they won't nine of 10. I mean, basically, they mean they just don't lose. Utah is almost impossible to beat this year, clearly the best record in the MBA. But when you look at Utah And they've been terrific. There's no knocking him when you look at them. Yes, they have excellent ball movement, and they move it around quickly. And, um, you know, spacing and all that. I know they've been compared now to a Steve Kerr himself said he reminds or the jazz remind them a little bit of reminds him a little bit of his Warriors team. From a few years ago at their peak with their ball movement in the way they move it so quick and shoot the outside shot. Here's my problem, the shooting almost 50 three's and night Now I get that their high percentage shots or I shouldn't say that that their good looks because of the ball movement, so they're getting open Looks when you hit in 20 threes, and I mean is that really sustainable? I don't care if they're open or not. Is that really sustainable throughout the course of an MBA season throughout the course of a playoff or a seven game, Syriza? I don't believe that it is. They'll prove me wrong. You know, this is not Clay Thompson and Steph Curry from the outside with Utah. They've been tremendous is a team I love Donovan Mitchell is a player Rudy Gobert has been a beast in the middle, so they're playing well, and they are now considered by many a legitimate championship contender. But you can't tell me that when Anthony Davis comes back, assuming he does come back at some point healthy for the Lakers that the Lakers wouldn't be more of a threat in the postseason than a Utah team. Who? Yes, spreads the ball around has excellent ball movement, but knocks down so many threes that I look at it as a little bit of fool's gold. Now, maybe. In fact, I am a fool at time for thinking that way, however, the threes the amount of threes that that team is shooting now its work for them throughout the first half of the season through the 1st 32 games or so it's working for them. I don't think it's gonna completely fall off. I think Utah is good. I think they're a team that has been on the rise Clearly over the last few years. I think they're well coached team. They play hard. Just don't know if that style For that type of play is sustainable, knocking down so money through every night 48 50 46. I mean, that's how many three they're shooting. Insane. What happens when the shots don't fall, And inevitably, that will be the case. So can you Top me taking city be taken seriously here and are we overlooking or we just overrating the situation What the Lakers are not because You know, people are not understanding that anything. Davis is out. We all should know he's out. When he gets back. They're going to be a different team as the Lakers were saying after the lost last night. Look, I mean, we prepare The regular season, is basically an extended exhibition and told the Post season the Lakers will be in the postseason. And the goal is for any of these teams. You could throw the Brooklyn Nets in there. Whoever Reference them because they haven't had those big three together. It seems right. You know Durant's banana while with a hamstring. Uh, Carrie Irving. One thing or another. The it seems impossible. Get those through together. And really, what does it matter? Until the playoffs. That's when they're going to be judged. It doesn't matter. Once we get to the postseason, then that's when you're gonna figure out what the you know, assuming that they're healthy. If they're not healthy, we understand that that's gonna be you know a knish you against any of these teams if the Nets don't have the Big three with Kyrie, KD and James Harden, for whatever reason. From postseason. Then all bets are off, right? And then maybe people don't expect the moment the championship, but the Lakers on of Anthony Davis, how can you expect them to be for a title? But if they do, and there's a long way to go here MBA second half schedule just getting released yesterday. Bizarre still hard for me, Tomkat. Um and I think this play in tournament thing is gonna be the norm moving forward Now. I'm just saying that, but I don't know that to be the case. I'm just taking an educated guess I think they probably like having The extra teams in there and having a play in tournament to get you know those bottom seeds. Um, those seven and eight seeds into the postseason. Those last couple spots, I do think it adds intrigue. But a sensually. I mean, this is what this is. It's a regular season. It's regular season. It doesn't mean anything. What does it all mean? Basil, especially now. Where home court is, you know means means way less than it did in the past because of the fans or the lack thereof. Or the amount or the lack thereof that are allowed in these buildings. So home court is clearly not the same. So what does it matter if the Lakers finished third or second or fourth or wherever Did you get the songs on their tail now in the Western Conference? As long as LeBron stays healthy, and Anthony Davis gets healthy. I'm not ready to bury the Los Angeles Lakers just because the Jazz buried them United going. I'm also not ready to buy into the jazz, you know, and it's funny. Now I never if you are familiar with my work If you're not get familiar, if you are, you know that I hate these percentages and BP eyes. I mean basketball Power Index. Oh, what the hell does that mean? Exactly? According to ESPN is latest basketball power index. I mean, this is all you need to know. They got the Milwaukee Bucks at number one. I'm sorry. Milwaukee is extremely overweight. How many years that they have to disappoint. In the postseason. Before you realize that whatever percentage is you come up with, but not that good. So they're B p I. Basketball power index. And I look, I don't even care how they get into it. It's analytics and going Akeem strength into predictor. It's the best predictor of a team's performance for the rest of the season. Right. Okay, I got it between that and the percentages. Hey, If the team is up by 20 late in the fourth quarter, their percentage of winning that game is like 90% or so I don't know, give or take. But if they're down by 10 with a minute to go, it's not very good. You don't have to go to an Ivy League school to figure out that math. Anyway, This b p. I has the box number one. The Jazz number two Lakers three Nets for Clippers Round out the top five. Now, What does that mean? Absolutely nothing. But It shows you how seriously people are taken the Utah Jazz and they should be taken seriously. They've been great, but realistically. Do you really think the bucks.

"His heyday with the Saints Compared with LeBron James could have done I believe him. He has a signed contract, a contract frame in his office from Jerry Jones to play for Dallas Cowboys. That's how serious they were. And there is 00 doubt in my mind that that man back, then wanted to play in the National Football League. He would have been an absolute stars of people saying, Oh, he's not. She could have made that transition. Oh, Yes, Yes, he could have. He would have done it easily. If anybody could do it will be a guy that believes the greatest athlete the NBA has ever seen It be that guy called LeBron James Gates. San Diego was a decent basketball player.

Yeah, I think you have been okay. You didn't Okay. Speaking of okay, My last will focus on another genius of the MBA. He is Steph Curry. Tonight. He became the first guard since Michael Jordan back in 1995 1996 to score at least 25 points. And here 50% from the field in 10 straight games. That's amazing. Not somebody got to play with his back to the place with his back to the basket or get in a room all time. What about the argument can be made that he is the best shooter that he MBAs ever seen. It's another reason why I was so thrilled to see him back in the basketball court. It's things that Clay Thompson is not there. But this is one of the things that I miss. When Kevin Durant made it the four horsemen and Golden State with him. Steph Curry, Clay Thompson Draymond Green. The genius of Steph Curry is that with the ball is in his hands. You just never know what's going to happen, But you can't take your eyes off of him the ability to shoot like that. The handle like that, and.

Um, it was pretty much again his look like her but healthy. His explosion has returned. But then also it was a little caution because the Golden State Warriors as much as we thought that they were going to be this back to normal type of situation, obviously losing Clay Thompson But they had so many deficiencies. I don't know if it was really Ah, great test. I think that on the on paper, it looks good. And maybe for the first, maybe first quarter attended 12 minutes. You kind of said Hey, but I think Derwent was remarkable. They pretty much got every shot that he wanted. I just would have loved to have seen a situation perhaps, and Draymond green was out there and healthy. He was out there to be able to, you know, again, Place in solid defense. Aundre on Kevin Durant, but make no mistake.

"Al, I know you're a fan of the Golden State Warriors. You like a team that is, uh, put together the way that they have been put together inside. How do you think the loss of Clay Thompson for yet another season is going to effect The output of Steph Curry. What think thee think the A combination of Clay Thompson and Steph Curry is amazing there arguably the best one to backcourt, maybe in the history of the game, right and When we lost to the Golden State Warriors when we had the higher seed, it was George Karl's last year here, a zoo coach out and I said it then, and I was Stand by it now if they were still healthy. It's gonna be tough for us to beat that team at any point. At any point. And what? Clay Thompson. It's not just the fact that he can make knocked down, making knock down shots off the dribble or with the ball in hand, but the defense and intensity that he plays it. Was special, and that was what made him such a complete player so that he's gonna be missed. And I think basketball fans in general want to see great players. Even even though you know it helps your team, not the Have the opposition at full strength as a basketball fan. In general, though you just love seeing those guys play and play at a high level. Yeah, I'll tell you. The tough part about it mostly is that you know Clay was working hard to get back after his, You know his injury that he had to his left leg that happened last season. This this time around. It's the right leg. It's his Achilles. Um, that puts him on the shelf for the while And then even when he just come back Even when he does come back. You don't know exactly how how long it's going to take him to rent back up. I guess we watch Kevin Durant to see what that's gonna look like because he's coming off the same injury. You don't know what that rehab is like with a guy like Clay Thompson because he had a prior injury to this one. So you know the one thing that trainers that I've been around For a long time. I've always stressed is that When you are rehabbing you just can't rehab the body part that is injured because the side that ends up overcompensating is the healthy side. So you always were trying to protect the health. I mean, the you always trying to protect the injured side. But that over works the healthy side, which is an imbalance. Why? Sometimes it feels like you're working the healthy side Maurer than the injured side of your legs. And that's the way it's supposed to be. Because you will overcompensate naturally. So you had you had Achilles injury knocked me out. How hard was that? I mean, when it just Tell us what it is like going through the surgical process, which, by the way, it was a lot was a long time ago. And I'm sure that technology and things have changed a little bit. But at the end of the day, it shouldn't speed speed up the healing process. So the so I told my Achilles on October 31st 1999, and when I tore it, I knew I was I was 31 years old and Sonny's I sooner die. Looked around. I thought somebody stepped on the back of my somebody step on the back of my heel. And when I realized nobody had stepped on the back of my head, I walked off the field and I was like And, uh and I said, I told my Achilles And great looked at me and say No, you didn't. Because if you want to tell you, Achilles, there's no way you could have walked off the field. I just don't want my last play to be in a Bronco uniformed one where I was carted off the field. But after the surgery had to surgery on my birthday on November, 6th And the rehab went okay. You know it started Started started off Good, and then you know, I was we having with somebody away from the team because a team actually to take a pay cut. After a tour it and I said No. And so I was left to rehab it with somebody else. And, um, that went okay. But I think you know, I've had problems with my tendons. I got toward my left and right. Try. Step toe. My right Achilles. And coming back from that Achilles. It was something else, man. I don't think I ever came back from it fully. Um, some people do you know Kobe Bryant or he is he came back on still had most of his explosion. When? When you're a guy who is used Toulon that Um, athleticism or quickness rather than just pure strength. When you lose a little, it feels like a lot. That's why I was worried about a guy like Von Miller. So you after you left the Broncos, you did go to camp with the New Orleans Saints. And you thought about giving in to go. And you just never were 100. You know, I'd have I'd have. So That was exactly so. I told in October, so I went to camp and you lie. And, uh, you know, I think I went to camp in August. So it was after a couple weeks, So I'm there and some some some days it felt great. The first day that I went out to, uh, first day that I went out to New Orleans. My agent Peter comments that Hey, I said, I said I'm done, man. I said, I'm done. You know, I'm kind of not getting a kind of offers that I believe that I deserve. And he said, Will you please just do me a solid? Okay? Will you just go down to New Orleans? One of his good friends in this business is Mickey Loomis and he was GM for the Saints. I said, You know what I'll take. I'll take a flight down and just just because I was working out and I was, you know, testing it, But I was already in my second part of my life. I was in my business career. Go down there and I'm actually moving around and feel great. I mean, I was I was dancing. I was back, You know, and I felt so good. I told Peter You know what? I'm not gonna You know what? I'm not going to sign this deal. Let's just let me just come back to Denver and with this figure out where we're gonna go And, uh, the saints used to practice at Nicholls State. Okay, so nickel State is this This college in this little bit of remote part of Louisiana can't remember the name of the city. But they had a Wal Mart and that that was about it. So I was in a hotel. I hadn't signed the contract and they were holding me hostage there in this little town and Nichols or where Nicholls State is or you couldn't even get out on the flight or nothing. I mean, it's not like a cab service there, you know, I mean, you get a cab service to get back to New Orleans to get on the flight. Was damn there possibly had to get a car service. So anyway, we did this happen for like, two days. So I was there for, like, two days. And then I finally signed and then I would go. I would have one practice. Then I would have Um, you know, It was okay when I was running around, and then when I soon as I start hitting other people and that or force of other people on it that just made I wasn't ready. Wasn't ready. So I told the coach, I wasn't ready and he said, Just stick with me. We want to make sure you around here to help these young guys out and I was like, I'm just not ready. You know, I told him I'm just I'm just done and he talked me out of return. Uh, two times and then the third time I just left. You know, So it was. It was frustrating because you feel like you're there and then you have these setbacks and it Z. If it's not You know if your surgeon isn't the best or you're not. You have scar tissue that just did not work itself out. It's just It's just terrible. I can't imagine. I mean, Oh, my goodness. That.

"2020 NBA draft is a wrap. I've been taking your phone calls on who the biggest bust in NBA history is Give you my top six list. Had Anthony Bennett at number one. Didn't deserve the even be in the league. General manager who picked him Chris Gant. Did not want him did not want to draft him. What was voted against everybody else wanted to me, said he had no desire to play in the NBA once things got difficulty quit. They're pretty much showed he didn't look like anybody who had desire. So I've been taking your phone calls will continue to take some or 855 to 1 to four CBS, but an unfortunate news. You know, we know Hitman, Edwards went number one overall to the Minnesota Timberwolves. And Wiseman went number two to Golden State law. Mellow is going to Charlotte. But some of the unfortunate news that we learned before the draft I told you about Clay Thompson. Had a sworn a CL and his left knee and tonight during a workout. It looks like he might have injured. His Achilles. We don't know the extent he goes in for his M R I tomorrow definitely not a good look for team that we were looking forward to seeing back at some type of full strength with Steph Curry and Draymond and Clay. And hopefully that whatever this injury is, too clay Thompson hope. Let's hope it's not serious, a matter of fact, general manager Bob Myers of the Golden State Warriors. He spoke. Take a listen to what Bob Myers had to say tonight spoke to Clay. Pretty shortly after, and he was driving.

This is very difficult team we're playing these guys challenging both sides of the football schematically athletically that they've got a lot of juice on offense, and Murray is a fantastic football player that really you can't keep your eyes off when you're watching them play. He's one of those guys. That's Pete Carroll, the head coach's Seattle. A second opinion confirms the initial diagnosis on drug res, five fractured ribs and a collapsed lung.

"A tie atop the Air Sea salvage. The NBA draft is coming next week. Lamell. Oh ball, the projected number one pick had it worked out for coaches and executives from the Warriors, Hornets and Pistons, who have picks numbers 23 and seven. Worked out for the wolves, who have the number one overall pick on Wednesday. Mike Schmitz on SportsCenter, the ESPN NBA draft analyst on what Golden State is looking to do it to. James Wiseman is the name you hear most often linked to the Golden State Warriors. And I think he's a nice fit because he gives them an infusion of athleticism that they haven't really had. I mean, he's close to 7 ft one He's got great length. You can finish above the rim. He can play alongside of Steph Curry, Draymond green, Clay Thompson, but I think you'll see them. Also consider moving back in this draft. There's some players. That really fit their timeline that fit their style of play, and the name that comes to mind to me is Tyree's Halliburton out of Iowa State. If he didn't get injured, he fractured his left wrist after 22 games. I think he would be considered arguably the best player in all of college basketball. He's 6 ft. Five He shot over 40% from three almost 60% from two. He's one of the best passers in this draft. And you'll hear people around the league. Compare him mentally toe like a Shaun Livingston, not his game, but his mental approach. Everyone who's interviewed him loves him. I went out to see him work out in Vegas, one of most impressive kids I've ever been around, so I think he's actually a perfect fit for the Warriors. If they do move you mentioned that name Shawn Livingston and Warrior fans are like I want him. I like to hear that right, another guy that I think a lot of people who follow the college game like to hear is over the top, and he was a star last season. Dayton and the ESPN dot com Mock draft hasn't gone to the calves at number five. How does his game translate to the next level? Offensively? I think it's perfect. I mean he's plug and play. He's going to be a starter from day one. He runs the floor incredibly hard. He plays with great energy. He's a vertical space, sir. As a loud catcher, he can also pop to space. He shot over 40% from 31 of the most efficient players in all of college basketball, extremely underrated passer. The questions are more so on the defensive side of the floor. He's not great laterally is not a great Protector yet, but offensively, he's a total stud. And with no off season with no summer League shortened training camp, I think he's gonna be perfect.

"Years ago today, Clay Thompson said the MBA three point record. He broke steps 13 with 14. And the Espy scored 52 in 26 minutes. And remember he had to do it before the end of the third quarter because the words were blown out the bowl, so he went 18 of 29 14 24 from three Oh, and they blew out the Bulls two years ago today Clay with 14 threes in 26 minutes October 29th 2018 Sarah's Jackie Moon. That was headband Cliff. He had the headband. Remember that? I mean, it's just my calendar's all screwed up here. Okay for the next game. That was the last game of a road trip in Clay got off to a terrible start that here he couldn't make a shot. He was five for 36 from three going into that game. Yeah, but how many threes you taking that game? 24 or 40? 14. He went ice cold. Hey, took him ahead of several Mrs before he made that 14 was appear two times that boredom. One of his teammates hit him. Remember, he was really going above his eyes, eyebrows. Forehead was bleeding, and they had to put a They put a headband and stopped the bleeding. So the next day for Halloween, he came in in the full Miami tropics outfit and went full blown head. Bad clay. And I think I was I wearing Jackie Moon outfit that night. I think you might have been made here and I thought Tammy stole my Halloween costume. So, boy, So the embassy's itwould be underway. It's just I don't know in the off season is that what was the All Star break, John and it should be coming out any minute here. I was so confused. I wouldn't. I wouldn't remember that on the night of October 29th. I totally remembered the day 2018 there. You're fortunate trees, all right? This is a great story I want. I think you and I would be on the same page here so An iPhone repairman got more than he bargained for. After finding a $100 bill in a surprising note inside a device he was fixing. The technician shared a clip the TIC tac, saying that he found this note inside this phone and a $100 bill. When a man and his wife dropped off his iPhone, the phone expert says. So this customer his wife came in earlier and gave me the phone to fix, he said. Give me an hour and I'll fix it for you. He comes back. He opens up the phone and underneath the scream. He found inside the case and $100 note in a note pleading not to fix the phone. It says on the note. She wants to check the phone history. $100 is yours. The repairman, captain, captain, the video Unbelievable and can't believe he did that. And he asked his followers. What do you guys think I should do? They ran the gamut. Okay, now the whole world those so she knows. So if you must know, anyway, But anyway, it doesn't say what he did here, though. There's a bunch of comments of what he should do, but ah It doesn't say whether he took the 100 bucks. And then he's gonna have to get a new smartphone. Right, Mr Dummy. Yeah, So once he does that, what's she going to do all they assume it's text messaging or whatever he did doesn't that transfer the to the new phone? It could mean what you could do is you could just started from scratch. If you want it to be. Then you're going to lose all your numbers and all that kind of stuff. But if he wants to keep his marriage that would probably worth a damn. What's he got in there? Tagger For exactly Hey, at some text messages. Somebody calls you on the phone. Don't delete the voicemail. Change your outgoing Do you really think I This is pushy galore. Tiger's not here right now. Hey, this is Tiger Did you with the guy? I would not If I was the one who wrote the note he gave the 100 A ll days off. Why did he have to go on social media asking anybody and now we're talking about it. I mean, he's got to know now. I mean, this thing's gone. This is the story over and Over in London. So Mrs found it was in England. Yeah. Oh, no, no, I mean, if it's if it's gotten all the way here. I'm pretty sure she knows. She just you know, So what's the fallout of it? If he doesn't say I can't believe this like To tell us what you did what happened, But he doesn't say that. I think the good side of it is John. He's going to improve his dental work, so it's gonna be It's going to be upgraded. Now he's gonna know this. There's a bit of a code there. I take the 100 bucks and say, I can't fix it. That I was a code. You wouldn't even take the 100. You just do it anyway. No, I'm saying there's like a bro code kind of thing, like, okay, well, but he went on social media, so he broke it. That's true. Why would you do if he didn't go on social? Like what would you do? Would you fix the phone? Give it back to or he's the one who brought the phone to me. And he's waiting to nodding and saying Don't fix my phone. I don't think I'd fix his phone. But I'd say 100 or just starting. Yeah, Yeah. You give me 100,000. This has offered me 150. I'll decide to fix it. So your serves there. That's true. That would be nice. I know how you do that right in front of him. You start, you know But there's other ways to get the numbers. I mean there's phone companies and probably break a violation. There you go. What was he up to? I would like to know the full story Probably say, Give me half the numbers. You called. Today It could be something that's sort of an idea. Ah. Who are those people? All right. That's funny. That is, that is a devil like you said. That's kind of Ah, that's kind of a deal. He did the wrong thing by taking the social media. Yeah, that's not cool. That's it cool so anyway. El Paso, Texas. They'll pass. It seems like we have a strip club story 23 times a week whether they it's somebody doing a drive through or somebody you know, getting shut down. I think that was in Arizona the other day or something like that. This is an old Paso, Texas, The Paso City Council clashed over strip clubs during the continued work session. The city reps were divided on whether letting the city or whether they're doing enough to protect community from Cove in 19, spending hours back and forth, having discussions giving suggestions on shutting down businesses in regards to strip clubs. They said that the orders are all businesses could be open at 50%. But apparently there are some city reps will see that. That that that Ah what are they really doing? I think keeping open because it says here that the Mayor. They're going to remain whole tie me. I broke a tire. Margo. Yeah. There you go. Okay. Have a female mayor is that the last name? Offended and they don't like the lobby the road people, so when they're saying they're only going to be open at 50%, that means they just take half their clothes off. How does that work? Yeah, they prefer men are gonna get us much, but it just seems to me this. But the other day we talked about it in Arizona..

"They should right? Like, I think that's their best case scenario for winning a championship is that he shows up, but let's not lose sight of what happened in game three. They went on eighteen overrun to start the third quarter. That's what we're talking about here. Otherwise, they're down two of the eight quarters that had been played. The raptors have scored more poison the warriors in six of them. The thing is even up at one one, but I talked to make the argument that the warriors have not been pretty consistently outplayed by Toronto for the majority of this series in now. We're talking about knocking do out now. We're talking about dollar, who's been a bit hobble hail year. They need Kevin Durant to come from the ceiling and save them, I would think well, and loonie also is the other name that is worth re-emphasizing because. Boogie cousins gave us the game of his career literally speaking the best game we've ever seen on the biggest stage possible. And loonie before then was the guy that they were counting on. He was the guy who can do the pick and roll, and Draymond wasn't doing it. He was the guy could be a mobile big. That could switch everything. The defense implied by clay Thompson's departure, potentially it would be weakened even more. So with looney out here's the dilemma to me with cousins, one of the problems with having cousins on this team has been he's not very good at getting out of the way. He's thirty percent usage type player for the majority of his career trying to find a way to squeeze in when he first came back, especially he was thirty percent usage player, right around, then they need him to get out the way generally. But now they kind of need somebody that can get buckets kinda need him to get in the way. I don't know how exactly that all works. It's a totally different change. They need him to get in the way of the raptors, they need him to occupy the lane, where Golden State realized maybe going big is actually the best thing for us. Fucked. Our second name, quite Leonard, Leonard has sued Nike in federal court for the rights to his old. Claw logo..

Thompson won the game on a strong put BAC of his miss after he scored he flexed his forearm in a fiery display. We usually don't get from the most laid back of the warriors main men. There was a buzz in the media about Thomson's display is he more demonstrative because he needs to be with Steph curry and dream on. Green both injured during the team's internal spat is he taking more of a leadership role is he feeling his prowess as he approaches neck summer's free agency. Why was he so animated Thomson explained knowing it's the last year in oracle? I'm just trying to enjoy every night and play with as much passion as I can. He said because I know it'll go by like that he snapped his fingers I won't be able to play in front of the same people, obviously. And the warriors will no longer be in the East Bay. So that helps me a lot Thompson said just realizing this is such a special ocupation. And we're so blessed with the crowd. We always have it so easy to get up. When there are twenty thousand people here every night and were selling out. I don't take it for granted. And knowing I was here when we kind of built this thing. It makes me enjoy it even more. Wow, simple words. But isn't it? Refreshing to hear an athlete voice. Exactly. What's important in sports? To know that he carries that feeling of privilege that he recognizes that he's experienced and participated in a special and rare thing building champion from the ground up and bonding with community we're so accustomed to sports stars taking things for granted for not really getting the role. They hold in our history and our hearts Thomson gets it.
