"Brainy back with you. Hans Scallon Powell Scouts always great to have our pal Kendrick Perkins a guy. You and I have known for a long time. Join US on Scallon POWs and as always was enlightening and entertaining and You know I think. One of the best, if not the best personalities in the entire NBA scale, we have some breaking news for you. That just came out. This is in from ESPN ESPN's Adrian now in Jackie macmullan, or reporting that the NBA is close to signing off on a second bubble in Chicago. That bubble in Chicago would be for the eight teams that were not invited to play in Orlando You know the bottom teams in each conference to in the West six in the eastern conference that bubble would enable training camps for those teams and some. Some games among those teams with the other clubs in the bubble sometime in September upscale. What do you think of that idea? And what do you think will be the reaction of the players on those eighteen so i? Don't know what the players are going. Say I'd be all for it. I love playing organized basketball especially gearing up for this season and I I would not like the fact if I was one of those eight teams when my season ended in March, and the new season doesn't start until January first. That's too long for me. To go without plan, you know highly competitive basketball, so listen if I'm the Golden State Warriors I might not probably not that happy about this by there's some players on the warriors that could use more time more experience. It is a sport. It is something that the more time you spend doing it. The better you get at it, so I'm all for it. Yeah and I think seven of the eight teams will certainly before it with the exception of maybe being the warriors, just because they're so experienced, and they have so much nobody when they're healthy with with with Steve Kerr steph Curry Klay Thompson and draymond green in particular, but I think you know the warriors may want to get those guys back. I'M GONNA BE GREAT TO GET SOME REPS Reps for Steph and clay, just to get back in shape and get back in rhythm before the Game Start you and I talked about that on the last show were predicting that the game start in December at the earliest for next year, probably on Christmas time thereabouts on scale here eight teams and into any of these teams. Maybe stand out to you as far as the restart. Restart or do you think it's more important for any of these eight? the eight teams in in this scenario that will be going. It looks like they will be going to the bubble in Chicago in September or the Charlotte Hornets. The Chicago Bulls The New York Knicks the Detroit Pistons the Atlanta Hawks and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern. Conference in the Minnesota Timberwolves and the aforementioned. Aforementioned Golden State Warriors from the Western Conference. Yeah I don't see why the warriors go. They probably will send their group, but I can't imagine Clayton Steph playing in this IF MINNESOTA THEY WANNA. Win I'm not sure they do. It's kind of like an option for them there, so I'm not sure how they feel about it. The other teams in the East I'm all for it. I just think personally to get better. You have to play yet to play competitive bat referees coaches holding you accountable. Everyone loves pickup basketball on instagram in the summertime. But I and I don't even know how this summer is GonNa. Look as far as where guys are GonNa Hoop. But I think it's just good to play I'm a big proponent, a proponent of Of USA basketball and big proponent of a plan summer league, and and and playing in this type of environment is well I. Think it will help your your team. Your timing your skills moving forward except with the exception of the Golden State Warriors. I don't think they needed. I don't think they'll even want to do it I. Agree with that scale at. The warriors do go I imagine. All eight teams will participate, but in maybe a lot of. Toscano answered San and the guys on the roster at the end of the bench Alan Smell. More than Steph and clay and dream on a playing, assuming that they do play some games there I'm Scott you brought up something, there was interesting. We're going to go rapid fire here to close out the show on Scallon pals again. It's Ryan mcdonagh and Brian Scallop bringing with you here on radio DOT COM upscale. You mentioned the Olympics for next year. As a reminder, the Olympics were supposed to take place this summer. In fact, they were going to start soon under the normal calendar, they were going to start in July. In Tokyo Japan of the Olympic Committee the International Olympic Committee took the unprecedented step of postponing the. The Olympics a year scale they said, and hopefully the pandemic is long over by next July but they said they're not gonNA do that again. So the new dates for the Tokyo Olympics that were supposed to take place in twenty twenty, and now we'll take place next summer in two, thousand, twenty, one or from July twenty third until August state so the question. I have for you. Brian SCALLOP. Brainy is should the NBA consider the availability of NBA players on not just American players but all NBA players for their countries in the Olympics next year when setting the schedule for the twenty twenty twenty twenty one season. So help me out here. This work backwards if the season started on Christmas, day..

"I just don't even understand how you able to do that like that. You know where you look at now. Steph curry is dropping down dimes on jumpers. The cap was doing sky hooks from damn near two three point. Line swing live with swing left shoot right. Hook Hooker. Nineteen you know. It was like so you can argue. Who was better? You go back into the seventies in in in the sixties. I swear to you all of the older guys around me. Tell me man you know. Damn Kareem abdul-jabbar. How you GONNA leave him out? The conversation meaning. They got a point a point. I get exhausted for trying to compare you know magic and and and night Zeh Koby and shack. And it's like this constant need to rate who these guys are and with an era. Sure you can try to do it. But why should get beyond the errors? It just gives too difficult either just. Espn's top ten list. You know we all know that like Kevin Durant is infinitely better than Larry Bird but we also know these different errors and so Larry Bird gets to not being in the top. Ten Katie is on the outside looking in but in reality that's not. Gm anywhere in the world that would've picked Larry Bird over Katie today. Also it also goes to a lot of people sour on Katie based on his personality and double twitter accounts and Bernard all different so people sour on that right they they look at that he had to leave and go join the he had to leave and join. Golden State to win this championship. Any left again to go to Brooklyn so they do all that stuff. Instead of looking at the facts of he is a Kevin. Durant is better than Larry. Bird from my is if you saw him and you put him next to him in a draft rule they certainly would take Kevin durant over Larry Bird but because everything else that comes with it down. Sure whoever was making these choices factors some of that intuit self-consciously of course the the era is everything because Larry Bird dominated than the eighties with magic. Johnson they dominated Kevin Durant has been a miraculous player won championships and Golden State one and MVP. He's a fantastic player as well but his level of domination has not been equal to a guy like magic Jordan and other six. He's a better player than Larry Bird. I agree with you guys. But the impact on the League and wet weather to hold league ran through one or two guys at that time Kevin Durant until got to state was not that guy and he joined one of the teams that is a is a direct result of the era. Which so he's gosh worse but but again. But he's he's a guy that when he went to Golden State when he went there. It was in the midst of this. This changing of the Guard in the NBA. Where the players got to decide where we're GONNA go the players determined who they're going to meet up with as opposed you just okay. You landed in this city. You played for this team for a long period of time. Maybe at the end you'd move somewhere else. It's different because Katie is going to be penalized. Argue unfairly is going to be penalized. Because he went. Join Clayton Steph and Golden State and. It's it's a serie narrative such as silly as narrative because the truth of the matter is if Bob buyers I worked trait and God Katie. No one would punish K. d. they would have been like. Bob Myers your genius. You're an amazing. Thank you right. L Z book us who kicked Katie is people would still try to find a crack or crease to create something because of who he is. You know it's it's one of those things because I've lived it as a professional athlete. They always looking for a little bit of crease. To even know you traded like I was to Tampa Bay. I didn't ask to be trading. I asked for was an opportunity to Redo my deal. I never said I wanted to New York but then the moment that you leave you left because of this or you did that or you this. It's like what was I didn't ask to leave. What are you talking about? They would do. Katie the same way because they just don't like him so when you don't like somebody you find ways to create a problem for that person that's the reality of it and you know that. Elsie did the browns really say no to a trade for Russell. Wilson is that the most browns thing ever. That's next on the morning show at seven ten. Espn so much about success. As an athlete key has to do with being a little bit lucky landed with the right team land with the right coach being around other really good players at a time. And if you're if you're a little unlucky who knows what happens and I don't know if there's anybody that is more unlucky or just flat out bad at what they do than the Cleveland browns. There's a story floating around out there. That the seahawks and the browns back in two thousand eighteen started talking about a trade that Russell Wilson would go to Cleveland in exchange for the number one overall pick back in two thousand eighteen that ended up being Baker Mayfield. But you start doing the. What if scenarios? What if Russell Wilson had left Seattle to go to Cleveland Dan Russell Wilson? Being trouble could be a fixed it. You have to be in a split. Look I like Russell Wilson okay. I think he's a really good quarterback like his abilities because of his size. And there's some things that that hinder him at times. Because of his size have done a tremendous job for Pete Carroll and the Seattle Seahawks. He is one guy that you afraid of at the indie games because the Houdini like attitude and the things that he does on the field and his performances with that being said right place right time right circumstances when he went from Wisconsin to the Green Bay packers to the Seattle seahawks when the Green Bay packers decided to allow. What was it? That Flynn name was Go TO SEATTLE FOR BIG Free Agency deal which made no sense at the time for anybody that know anything about football in in and was P- Carol got a real look at that quarterback after paying him he said no no no. I'm just going with this dude. I don't care right place rice situation like you say it if he goes to Cleveland in a tray Freddie Kitchens coach okay so now what because you? Jackson gotten fire because the same thing that happened. When Hugh Jackson was a coach with Baker? Mayfield would have happened if you Jackson was the coach in here. Russell Wilson's he wouldn't. It wouldn't have changed. It would have been the same thing and then you fire because you have problems with your staff and Y'all bickering and fighting and Hugh Jackson in Todd Haley. And they couldn't get along so everybody got blew out the next year. He got Freddie Kitchens. Now now would and I understand. I understand that that's out. There and university was conversation that was had but whether those conversations real conversations conversations to spook Russell Wilson into signing deal where you gotta deal with the no contract clause. We'll come back to that in a second but as far as the conversations being real according to Tim Hasselbeck. They were very real areas that they were definitely talks about. Russell. Wilson being traded back. Then yes you know. Totally just the browns or well-staffed went but yeah. What more can you tell me you The interruptions appreciate. What more can you tell me? I just think that Dope by your would. No you know. I think the comment was they. Were looking at some players in that draft and some of the players that were they were looking at it with surprise because where they were picking was like. Well why would you be looking at these players and Basically it was going to be an effort to get a bunch of picks and obviously move way up and You Know Russell Wilson. Young would helped make that happen. And you know I wasn't thinking Russell. The guy the comment to me and You know originally Kinda talked them someone else you know after that and You know came up like as the name might surprise you like. Hey It's not. Bobby Wagner name but it's not Bobby Wagner you know. I think the comment back then. So what let's start from the Brodsky? Why wouldn't you do it what somebody says you? Here's a Guy. That's a super bowl winning quarterback guy that has been to another super bowl. All the things you described about kind of the Houdini Act at the end of the game is good. Decision maker can run. He can pass. It doesn't take a bunch of hits. Why would you not want that? And then go into the drop with a giant unknown because Baker. Mayfield's been okay but certainly not Russell Wilson Russell and you might have to give him two hundred million dollars. That's number one just economics just were. That's part of it and you may not feel the number one overall pick may only been one thing for us so maybe they was asking for some other stuff too that you wasn't willing to part ways with you know. At that time they had the one end four they might have been saying. Give me your one annual four. GimMe a two three and five. Because they're trying to manipulate some stuff in the draft and at the end of the day door John. Dorsey probably man. I'm cool. We'll give you our four 'cause we might want to hang on for one so you just you don't really know these things conversations on players come up all the time just in passing you know. A lot of it sometimes can be tongue in cheek. Amen where you want for Elsie. Granderson will make me an offer. Ya You to get rid of him. You're going to get rid of him. Yeah we'll make me an offer who if you've been talking to those rumors have been in a bag of chips. No I can't give you chips because it s too much. Just give him a starburst.

"Gray sick Uni Andre Igwe dollar but I guess what I'm saying is even though I got them as my solid number two to. I don't know if it's enough to get them to the finals. And if it's not enough to get them to the finals I'm just looking. I'm watching these young brothers on the com- up and and they are so impressive to me. You never you've heard me say about Clayton Steph. You've never heard me look at a young ado debt young when it comes to Robson. I said he's a specialist especially touching no coaches. I'm just saying when I see something like that. I don't want anything to hitting away. That's my only concern. I mean Pat Riley has done it before. Okay okay two thousand four two thousand five. I was the starting point. Guard the Miami Heat. We made it to the Eastern Conference finals. The Wayne way gets hurt. We lose and game seven to the Detroit Pistons that summer. I thought because of the season that I had. Ah that I was on my way to a big payday. Okay Pat Riley says. I don't think this team is going to be able go to get over the hump. Let me make some moves. And he made the necessary moves. He Traded Eddie Jones to Memphis Guide. Antoine Walker. Who else did he get? He got my memory. Jay Williams from Memphis and white chocolate click white chocolate up point dozy. Sorry sorry what was it. and he puts all this chips into the middle and he made the trade guy his support. Max will what you're saying about Pat Riley. Here's the one positive inescapable because house of how he is and how he thinks you know he's always trying to win a you can never knock him for that because in his way. He's he's looking at you and he's saying I believe in you go get it done. There's no schedule how rare it is beautiful. When I see a team that I don't really think and get over the hump? I usually think it's futile mutal to mortgage your future to just one up against the wall every now and then I see a team that the odds are against them probably not GonNa win at all but the way they play they have a certain certain kind of leader kind of organization. Certain kind of chemistry where you go damn it even if it fails this worth a shot. This team is worth a shot. Were they got the big. Oh garland are equality doesn't because off editors who best players in the eastern conference operas or Janas enjoy lead to get out of the Eastern Conference. You have to begin on the floor. Who is a two way win like Jimmy Butler in the east? There's no wider. Why to slap them now? Nobody right but I'm saying those are the two best players in the Eastern Conference in my opinion into get to NBA finals. You have to go through the radio. Where do you have them now? If you're GONNA say the bucks are the best team. Where do you put the Miami Heat? Have they closed the gap on the Celtics. Yes I had them SEC. Okay I have them second. I Got Boston Austin third. I got philly fourth. I'm banging my head against the wall because of things that are going on right now. Just wish they needed number but let me tell you right now about the sixers based on what you just said because they have students now and that's what they needed Brett Brown around the clock because with the talent that you have available to you. It's only question mark is can you piece together Brett Brown. I believe Brett Brown round is in a situation with. There is no excuse to lose to anyone outside of Milwaukee but but let me say this is who is anybody other walkie he may still be there because they love him on a personal personal level but in terms of believing him as a coach is GonNa let me say this about the sixers. I've been arguing Ben. Simmons should have his own team although staying back in Miami. Maybe he's not mature enough but his development elements should look more like the freaks but him be maybe they're not getting the whole is not greater than the sum of their parts however when they're on the floor together the sixers are very tough to the beat they really performed very well and Brett Brown. Whatever you WANNA say Stephen a I'll agree with you on Brett Brown only because of this? The team is devastating eating at home and a joke on the road to me. That does come down to the coach but other than that that whole road split. I can't say they're not functioning like they're capable and Brett. Red Brown showed a functioning at a very high level. Yeah yeah well one thing he has to do. He has to stagger minutes. More because when Joel embiid was out with Injury Ben Simmons was ten illegal. I mean his pace was great and he was doing a lot of things in transition. So if that's the case all right well. I'm not going to play both in a guy so many minutes together Stephen. They had some great thoughts on the seventy sixers earlier. If you missed it in the first hour checking out on demand.

"Now a lot you know every now and then there will be a an instance where we're a guy the guy checking me out the grocery store like a random person in in a restaurant but not not nearly to the to the extent that the that eighty broad my you can still go out in public and and kind of fit in not for long. I'm telling you man you I got last year is so this is important question. We have this dumb thing around here called mythical money. Yes we get a fake hundred grand at the beginning of the year and then we bet throughout the year to see who's good at betting nice. I bet a bunch of it on Texas am at home to beat Auburn Man. The hell happened. Offense has been a little slow start the year you you know we the two games against Texas state. Those are kind of wash. We knew we were going to win those right which is better players but the cleansing game and Auburn game were kind of the same thing we were slow start on offense defense played well enough kind of keeps us in the game and then time just ran out. You know I think they're gonNA. I think they're GONNA fix it. I think this weekend's Arkansas's good game for us. Thank you you have mythical money on on an this we do. We ignore dominate. I mean knock on Wood Dominate Arkansas and that that game injury whatever you so yeah. I'm looking forward to them getting back on the right track. Well listen man. I'm probably happier for you than anybody. Because I know how hard you worked how how long the climb wise but like you like you say. Don't get comfortable trouble and keep it up. That's the that's the key appreciate it. Alex Caruso with us here at the Lakers Media Day in El Segundo Mason Ireland ESPN ESPN LA Lakers Media Day Steve Mason John Ireland with and joining us right now is brand new lakers. Danny Green Danny good see. How are you same great. Thanks for having world champion. Dad Is that right like. I was amazing very much roller coaster but amazing a lot of fun short summer but we enjoyed it. Dany a lot of people don't know that you've played with Lebron before right when you at the start of your career in Cleveland you played with Lebron so you know what it's like. Did that that affect your decision on whether or not you were coming to the Lakers that you kind of knew what that life is fun for sure. I don't think I didn't play much during that time but the fact that you'll get to play with with a guy like that in fact that of course Davis of course strangely. He's the only guy on his team that I play with this. Is your eleven coming up and all these guys are new to me so you know he's he's only familiar personnel play and I hadn't really hadn't played much like I said so as a brand new teams. I was going to be different atmosphere a different adjustment for me. What you like playing with Lakers on on your Jersey different Ma'am can you the colors strangely come into find out which I thought. I didn't know that much like America's team you can Laker love everywhere. I'm every city I've gone to. Everybody is a big fan of Lakers. Not just the west coast not just in. La Or California if somebody Lakers fans all over the country which is amazing to see Dana you mentioned that your your twelfth year on the Eleventh Eleventh Year in the League and you statistically great out as an elite shooter and as an elite defensive sense of player the type of guy that if you want to you'd WanNa leave that guy in the court the whole time you're in your eleventh year. I mean you've played eleven years in the League. So what's reasonable. We hear the term load management being thrown around all the time. What's reasonable for you at this stage of your career whatever it takes to win. It doesn't matter what the management or load is not not one of those guys that needs to be off the four on the forest ser amount of time and we need to play you know thirty five forty we we'll get it done and get a win year eleven. I'm not that old. I'm still very young fresh more mental for me. Just take the body acting. Everything's important as you get older before and after your preparation before and after you know helps that longevity but yeah you know playing eighty two is tough. You know these days not gonNA say not. GonNa lie and it it isn't it does wear and tear on your body and your mind emotionally more than anything so I think most guys only burnt out but the games you do play play whatever minutes they need you to. Kwa and you know hopefully if you take care of business. You have to play eighty two. I I like Jon said you're going to be one of the keys defensively for this team. What what are you guys need to do. Defensively as a as a roster I think the communication we have enough veteran leadership nothing that have been there and have one thousand same page and chemistry's other personalities to to bond in that clash and build some good communication. You know we'll be pretty pretty good pretty solid and that's the word worst all starts for us and for me you know I was thinking shoot the ball sometimes and make some shots but starts on that end of the Florida the you know the place where I hang my ahead is part of this weird for you spent all those years in San Antonio and there was such a rival revealing the Lakers and spurs and in the fans hated each other in the players one to me didn't want to lose to was the other one. What's it like for you to be in the other locker room now. It's a bit weird but I think that year removed from San Antonio Toronto Health. I know how much musburger fans are not fans of the Lakers. You know so it's different but they still support and then show a lot of love for me and support me what I'm doing my journey and happy for me which is good you know very supportive fans there and in Toronto in Canada so it's been amazing in that sense and now it's a little different but no I'm excited. I don't don't think about the the Jersey of the name as much as the team ranked what we can do with the group that we have opening night. You played the clippers. Kawai is is a clipper now. What's you're GONNA be like for you. Strain weird is like you said you know being a Laker now being from San Antonio being with him for his whole career until now for at least seventy years Tom together and it's our first year not playing together and being in the same back court also. GonNa be strange to me weird but it's GonNa be fun. You know is going to be a competitive good game. I'll see early so it's pretty much. A preseason game has me It'd be more fun when we see them probably Christmas later on the year when teams actually clicking you know getting a feel for each other but now they're going to be a good eighteen. They put some really good pieces together picked up some good things in free agency and so. Did you know this team is going to be a lot of fun to watch them play. Danny Green thing is our guest Anne if I if we clearly cameras out of here and have a three point shooting content that the Laker roster you win. It depends on the day man. We have a lot of good shooters. Troy ounce can really shoot it. Quin Cook can even Avery Bradley Jared Dudley. We have a lot of eating Rondo on days. He shoots it very well and our big you know Anthony Davis that Guy Walking through your shoe couple of threes so we have a pretty good squad guys. Don't forget the best players in the planet for the last fifteen years Lebron James You never know when he gets hot. What's what's GonNa Happen. Can anybody stop that combination Lebron James and Anthony Davis and then we'll find out this year but I'm hoping not yeah obviously well. There's so many dynamic duos yeah. You know like you know allies game. Well you get quiet. Paul George Harden and West burkey Clayton Steph when clay gets healthy. Do all those combinations work do do you think all you've got a new to new superstars ashore West. Hardin just pick up where they left off in the UK says I. I think it'll be great. I think it's great for the leagues where for the West the balance of power it's a little better than it was before and it's GonNa be some real competitive basketball and I think a lot of those teams a lot of groups will superstars those duos can work said claimed stuff but you have the ends on our DMZ Andrew when you have those guys drain on stuff on the floor. They always have opportunity to win claiming he gets healthy. There's still very much contender. People don't need to sleep on them at all and I think they will but they're very much a very good team and they can still make it back to the final stage with those those guys that have there you mentioned that you've been the league eleven years you've never played for the Lakers and went to North Carolina. Have you ever lived in. La Until now I have not lived in La.. How is that going so far like. Did you find a place to live and learn the freeways. I'm trying to learn the freeways I'll never understand or learn the traffic you know something by the way neither have the rest of us like random ten o'clock. PM Traffic Jams it makes no sense but you know I'm adapting and adjusting and I'm enjoying it so far the weather's there's a lovely come from Toronto on that saying that it was horrible but it's a lot nicer little water so it's a little warmer but I'm I'm enjoying that so far right now so in Toronto when you guys want it I can't they must it's a hockey town but they must've gone crazy or they haven't seen a finals or championship in twenty five years. Can you feel the whole country for sure and I was lucky enough to travel the country during my time and experience different cities and see how much they celebrate it and loved loved the win the raptors how much they love the team so it was amazing men and thirty six million people watching and supporting all over different drastic parks and I'm hoping to bring that type of energy type of atmosphere here. I Hate Danny. Thank you very much bye. We appreciate it look at career meant more from Lakers media day coming up Mason in Ireland on Espn La and we are back Lakers Media Day Mason an Ireland and enjoining us right now as crews kyle crews and the crews. How are you man all right. So how worried should I be about this foot thing. How are you not where he'll you're not optimistic yeah indeed. Which is some that happen when you were training with team. USA Yeah I just woke up one morning and my foot was hurting so you know it was good good that we caught her right away and no. I'm back on the Rehab Process and no I had to go to a little bit so they actually is It's a stress reaction. That's what it is so it was right before a stress fracture so like I say we caught at a good time so normally different rest in it. It will heal itself as long as you don't own overdo it. Yup Yup. Those injuries are because you did overdo it and now here's what it is okay so take that out of it. Take the fact that Church foot out of it your team. USA The experience. We're glad you did it one hundred thirty percent. Why would you like about it. Just how much I learned I learned so much being around coach Pop Steve Kerr Jay right and all the other players that we had on the roster. It was super good experience for me and my confidence sky-high now so no it. It's great for me another season here. What's it feel like Shit Day another dollar now. I'm excited you. You know. We got a good team another new team but I'm excited right so I know how close you were with the guys who got traded yeah. Do you still talk to him. He's still give everybody a hard time. Timers it now radio silence until during the season now we talk. We talk from time to time you know why Jay Wright gave you some good. Josh heart dirt he did. He gave me some stories yes. SRA's I'll make sure I'll tell him when the free throw line perfect T. so but in general coups. I think this is an opportunity for you and I've made I've told told Mason this and I wonder if you agree with it. I've said for the last few years you've either drawn the other teams best defender their second best defender when the Brian got hurt last year the best defender went to you and when you got hot like when you get hot and Houston or you get hot at the start of a game the best defender goes to you now on a team with Lebron. Ad Can't do yeah and so do you look at that as an opportunity like I do for you..
"clayton steph" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"It's gonna be interesting to see how fast things move on June thirtieth. I mean some of the role players, I think are going to come off the board pretty quickly. I think Patrick Beverley comes off the board pretty quickly at a big number. I think Malcolm brogden is gonna get a huge offer sheet in his first days out there. And then if you're the Lakers, you kind of looking at some of the, the unrestricted role players like the guys you mentioned, I put Danny green in that mix as someone that could be a good candidate. Great locker room guy, selfless has won championships making make open jump shots at a championship level. He's someone they were considered if, if they need to get another big men. I mean Robin. Lopez is out there. You know, not a floor space, but hard working guy that can balance out, and we've seen over the years calling that Anthony Davis has benefited at different times during his career having a big body play alongside. Those are two names, but I think the Lakers are going to have to let the dust settle little bit in the first couple of days before they scoop up some of these role players. K D does decide regardless of his destination. So you're, you're Bob Myers, and Steve Kerr, Katie announces he's leaving you max Klay Thompson. And then what do you do? Like, what, what is, what is the plan b in your opinion? If everything I wouldn't leave. But if he leaves regardless of the destination, what is the current NBA dynasty? Do I don't want to call it like a developmental year? But maybe it is, you know, for that team because you just gotta have Steph and a bunch of other guys, you know, clay, not back until probably March at the earliest, and even then who knows we've seen in lost years. It might just be. They might just say Klay take the year off. I mean, unless unless something is working for them at that time when he's healthy. You know there are some free agents out there, some younger guys that, that maybe you take a flyer on and, and see if you can you can develop at a low number Stanley Johnson type out of out of Detroit door. Somebody just I'm not sure. The names now. But the younger guys out there that maybe you can take a fly on now on a short term multi year deal. And then next year when you get Klay back, you can have some of that depth, you're locking over the last year, or so that makes sense to me. It's just it's if you do it that way, you at least position yourself to be a player in twenty twenty because it's now going to be all about. And I, I expect to rent to go. I mean, anyone says they knows what Kevin Durant think is just is just lying at this point. He's, he's an odd guy to read, but if he does leave it becomes all about Clayton Steph and you wanna find the best players for the next three years, who can play alongside clan stuff. And, and that's what I think this next year should be about, finally, Chris, Mannix covering the NBA since two thousand three friend of the show every year. There's a shocker or at least every other year. That's why we all kind of go. Wow. And that's what makes this soap opera so much fun. I kind of think Jimmy Butler is that guy. I wouldn't be shocked V ended up if Kawhi Leonard like listen. I don't want to be just the guy just did that in co is like, bring another guy in, I kind of feel I know where Al Horford going. But could he be a shocker Jimmy Butler Horford? Could they potentially shock us? I mean, the Jimmy Butler has always been about the money and I'm of the belief that as long as the Sixers come to the table with, with something in the five year range, that, that he's going to stay because the the way they've, I've been told they're thinking Philadelphia it's, it's logical. They're just giving up too much to go get him. And the same thing with Tobias Harris, they can't allow money to get in the way of all this further going to be interesting..

"But what do you think about maybe a changing of the guard in not going all in trading all your assets like the Lakers might have to me? I mean, are so the worst dynasty started. Did you see it on the top of their baskets? Now, when they go to that angle says strengthened numbers, that's what they started with. And they had they had this court, the talk of the lineup with Steph clan dream on, and they had the deep bench the route, and then they sacrificed all that depths and those numbers for Kevin Durant. Don't get me wrong. Any team in the NBA was sacrificed app for a player like Kevin Durant. But the raptors beat the warriors at what the worst say that they do the rafters were true example of team that has strengthened numbers. They went eight deep with Norman Powell Baca, Fred vanfleet. Let's not forget about Otani. Nobody. Who was out the entire playoffs with a appendicitis towards the end of the year. Don't forget about Pat McCaw three years in the league three the titles. I mean, the guy Seraing magnet. The as on believable, he leaves the warriors than they decide to lose. His crates bottom line is I told her the theories told all real sports fan. The warriors were the better team with or without Katie didn't matter in a playoff. I mean, don't get me wrong. Katie was playing no-one in the right mind was picking the warriors to win this series. But I think everyone had the idea while at least I did given that. I did have a metaphor license before the series and it was only vow dated throughout the series. That the, the deeper team is going to Windsor out. They got scoring all over the place. You just mentioned Siafa twenty eighth Lowry with twenty six letter with twenty two you bought with fifteen. They were getting production from everywhere. You saw in enduring the game Clayton. Steph were literally carrying the team mostly clay, and then clay went down. Unfortunately, I mean, hopefully, he's nothing serious and everything's fine. But towards the half of the third quarter in the fourth quarter the warriors really struggled against scoring in that. That's what you see. They claimed his strength in numbers thing, but where were the numbers have about the fact that bogie signs, mid level exception becomes villain? Doesn't even get zuri bummer for him. But. Brings me back. It brings me back to that, like, boogie was going through that hole. Like three ages free agency thing last year where no one would give him the daily wanted. And then he was just like there was a video of him. I think it might not under opted or something like I'm aware that idiot. You just hate the warriors. I do hate the warriors. I'm sick them. They ruined the parody of the NBA, and I'm glad came to backfire on them. I mean, I would never want. I would never wish anything. Any injury upon any player upon any team, especially in the situation. I mean, I think that if clay stayed in this game tonight were headed back to Toronto for the best two words in sports game seven, and that would have been a Harvard classic and don't get me wrong. I mean it's sick. What happened Kevin Durant? I can't even put two words about it, but autumn lines what happened happened. The warriors have been taken down. I think that's the end of their, their run. And I think the NBA will continue to have more Patty throughout and you'll see teams like the rafters forming and the NBA's it's a good start will one thing that's kind of a misconception is that, you know, there's not super teams there's not dominance Nambia. But if you actually look back over the history, there's only like in these decades only. So our land. About how minimal the teams are. Exactly. And I think like obviously ran going there overshadows it in overpowered them, but it's not like the Lakers winning five in, you know, in this century the Celtics, one of you, the Mavs really the only one team. The Spurs had a few lebrons had a bunch the warriors, like people like to act like they ruin the league. But there's always been major major super teams, maybe this one was a little extreme..

"But I'm gonna have the only grade that I can give Kuwata see. Plus because I thought he was average last night. I didn't I don't I don't think he really impacted the game on any end of the floor especially early, because he let Katie get going early his game suffered because he had three turnovers in the first quarter and he wasn't his, his customary self. He would great boy, stretch in the fourth quarter we rattled off ten straight points, but I don't really think he had his thumb print. I don't think he impacted the game like we're used to seeing a wide Koidu. And so by that stretch. Kip I didn't like if the game is he's nine to twenty four from the field. Defensively he let Katie get into a rhythm early. So that's the best I could do. I thought he was average. I thought they played average in this is why we have a game six so the best, I can give to see. Plus, wait a second. Did you start your soliloquy by saying, I know I should know that you're always fair you fair bear. Arm, but fair still a variety of number two. You're, you're outrageously, not fair outrageously overprotective of both. So I'm sorry. I wish I could taken your course in college because you're the most generous greater I've ever encountered again. You give him a b plus for an average game will then. They getting Moby. Plus, I gave them a ceiling said a plus oh a smog. Game game with every said v plus okay? Well, then, you know, I gave them sleep looks okay? Okay, I'm sorry. I misunderstood. I thought you said be okay. So then I'm going to be the more generous here because I'm going to give him a b minus because of that flurry, it was a sensational flurry. He just couldn't finish it off. But until that flurry, he add a game, even quieter than he usually is off the court because remember in the third quarter he scored one point. And then in the fourth quarter the flurry he had scored two points on an offense of rebound put back. So we go all the way down to the five thirteen Mark. And he's got sixteen total points for the game. And at that point, he goes Jordan to ask crazy. And he makes a couple of threes and he makes three jump shots. And all of a sudden, he scored ten points in less than two minutes. So that was such a sensational flurry that, that I'm going to I'm going to move him up above average. So I'm gonna move him up into the B minus category. But from then, on, he goes stone cold quiet again. And he misses his last two shots one with two fifty remaining a fall away in which he shot an air ball. And then minute tin left. He's got a chance to, to put them in the lead. It's a tie game, and he takes a twenty six foot three point shot. And he misses it fairly badly. So down the stretch. He does nothing that lasts three twenty eight he scores no points. They have seven possessions in the last three twenty eight. And if you're that guy if you're Jordan-esque you just figure out how to get a hold of the basketball score the basketball, and he did not go ahead. We'll say it's the reason why gave a c plus because had not had that blur. He'd have got a deep. Okay. Because I thought the first half he didn't play particularly. Well, it was the five turnover skip he was really, really careless really, really sloppy with the basketball. And like I say he doesn't always have to score to impact the game. But he led Kevin, the rent get a rhythm early and in the process of Kevin Durant getting a rhythm, which opened the floor. He Clayton Steph now got a rhythm, now you've got to deal with them, even though Kevin Durant going out, they never got out of that instead was able to keep that really for the first half. And then clay like you mentioned eight points in the third quarter was in the fourth quarter. So he was able to keep it going. He did. So then what happened defensively to number two on what became the shot of shots, the game winning shot, we're was number two on that play in which clay hit the biggest three of the night..

"Green. They just decided he personally decided in Livingston and Igwe dolla word agreement. This guy is beating us. He is he can win this game and make somebody else win it for Toronto. If they're going to win it, and they know they know, with one hundred percents certainty that wanted is not a four skit kind of play the he was probably going to give up the ball there. He's not going to go through a double team. That's not Colli litter style, the plate. What did he do that? Late in the game. He gives up the ball. And at least they're really gonna take their chances with vanfleet or calorie. They don't wanna take chances with Kuwait, Leonard who scored ten points and under two minutes to give them the league. And so that defensive audible with green calling it, and etc. Executing it that could have saved the game as much as anything else with Golden State Warriors. Let's get to some straight talk. Brought to you by straight talk wireless. I mean Colli Leonard and you just heard Michael wilbon reference it in the fourth quarter was unstoppable. And we got to the point that I believe it's sixty five this year for, for Toronto sixty four sixty five this year when they're up by six with three minutes left. They were in that situation. I mean as much as we're going back to a game six Leonard was playing lights out. They were up by six had every opportunity to win this game. There's a spot where, you know, I figured it was over a was over. And then you get to that point where the look was there and Mike you. Right. That sometimes you leave that, that shooter, open, you roll with it, but they couldn't let quite take they couldn't and you saw obviously the late rotation because. Kyle lowry. They the way they planned it. He got himself. Good, look and put it off the side of the backboard. But what everybody else is going to be talking about, as well as the fact that Toronto was on a roll, and then with a little over three minutes ago, they chose Nick nurse chose off missed three by by Steph. They bring the ball up court. They're up what five six at the time and they call a timeout and every every analyst in the world's head exploded as to why are you stopping your momentum right now? Oh, yeah. Well, Nick nurse talked about it after the end. This is his explanation of why they took a time out when they had all the momentum. Well, we had two free ones that you lose under the three minute Martin. We just came across and just decided to give those guys arrest with back to back ones air, that we would have lost them to the three minute, Mark. And just thought we could use the extra energy push that straight talk. Brought to you by straight talk wireless. Everything for less. Only at WalMart. Problem is you gave that extra push in that little extra edge to Golden State. And they came out. I mean just there was a different level of energy at Clayton. Steph again, like they got the they got the breather, they needed. They were able to come out with more energy like you're talking about rolling the dice like Nick nurse world did is there and that one did not work out. There's a lot of very good things in this series in this postseason. I just don't think that this is one of them like that's a situation where like you said, you're also giving the opposing team a chance to rest and recover themselves. When you got a chance to deliver the knockout blow like you worry about that rest in that time, once you have thoroughly down the other team the way they were I mean there was that stretch their Leonard at scorer assistant on fourteenth straight points. There was nothing Golden State could do with that man in that stretch. And you wanna get away from that to me, made, no sense. It was one zero three ninety seven at the time is six point lead, and they called the time out. Now. Listen, I agree. That was the wrong time for this again, doing the twenty twenty thing looking back of twenty twenty vision looking back on it. They still had a lot of game left and it shouldn't be shocking. Us. We know the NBA game of runs in Toronto just been on one. It shouldn't be shocking that Klay hit a couple and Steph hit one of the threes to get them going there at that point, and get the win. They hit twenty for the game. They had say hit seventeen of them before those final three threes. They outscored Toronto by thirty six point at the three point line. They get twenty of them and Toronto hit eight. So while I agree it, it killed him momentum's. It's still shouldn't be shocking that those guys made some threes and got him back in the game. It's not. I mean, you could all kind of lump this into the whole hot hand fallacy thing, like cutting off, which is a fallacy like it's not real thing. Good shooters, make shots consistently surprise, surprise. But it is just one of those things where and we can talk about momentum and if it's real or it's not the way that whole crowd, and that whole arenas going the way that your team. There. It just seemed like a tough spot. Like you said it's a game of runs and you were on willingly stopped it. That's what we're going to. But to the point that you've made Mike Aleve, the, the shooter open. He misses you're brilliant. You leave the shooter opened. He makes it then you're not in the same situation. If it comes out rested, and he got the breather he needs. And then all of a sudden they're energized in the last few minutes. We're like how how smart was that? Like this is this is what opens up from a one point loss. Keep breaking down throughout the course of the morning coming up game five of the NBA finals changed on one play that wasn't Nick nurses time out. We'll get to that after this. I will continue the straight talk wouldn't spend more to get the exact same thing. Would you know nobody would? So when I tell you that straight talk wireless runs on the same cell towers, as a big is. But charges you a lot less. You see where I'm going, right? America's largest, most dependable four G LT network up to half the cost, get the forty five dollars unlimited plan from straight.

"He threw a couple of early, but when he hit that shot laid out the Kawass leads from going out of bounds and then vanfleet does that again. Sometimes you just gotta throw your hands up say, guys will get game for because it there's nothing you can do they could do no wrong last night. Every run that the warriors would start they would Quayle it, they would find a way to suppress that clay Clayton Steph headed going the entire night, the first quarter he don't want to come in. And I was like, do the only way y'all can lose this game. If y'all still go for like sixty he's well on his way is in about to go to, you know, just double him with give you these Steve Kerr, put a bug in the officials here tried that box. They try that box in one and they got a lot of own deepest, call instill crew go to knocking down. But you had to be impressed with the warriors. And this what this goal is to show you skill. I don't care the type of it's that you have a good to great team will suppress any one player in. That's what we saw last night. We saw historical. This is the second most points ever scored in the finals game in a loss. We saw the one last year. Did we know we saw LeBron James of forty nine points at the regulation, and he was too afraid to take the shot? All all all, I know who knew we saw Steph curry have a playoff career high. And he never got within sending and lost by fourteen. That's what we know. Also, I was very impressed with the raptors because they came in the game they this Lee, you hate fan, you know, series tied one, one of must win yet this was a must win. Because if you can't beat them without Katie, you can't beat them from start without Klay Thompson, you deserve to lose that game and that series that what would have happened had. They not did what they did last night. So I was very impressed with the wrapped now it's my turn. You make some pretty good points. How could I not be impressed with what Toronto did last night, and I was, but in the end as I stepped away and tried to go to sleep and couldn't go to sleep. I was more unimpressed with what Golden State could not do, especially Steph curry right before my very eyes is I step back last night. I saw Steffes mystique and magic fade at oracle those were as quiet of forty seven points as I've ever seen from anybody, especially that guy who can be as explosive a three point shooter as we have ever seen in the history of this game. Those were as impact less. A forty seven points is I can ever remember because there were more twos than threes. It was not a three point shooting barrage from Steph curry, right? He made six. He has a career high thirteen. So he made six in wait a second. Danny green made six for the other team. What did I tell you about Danny group where is disappeared? I said, trust me, I know him watching for all those years, and San Antonio. It's finals time. He will rise and shine. He will snap right out of his slump. And did he ever last night from beginning game? Boy, he will come and he will go, but he will he will come back one in three he K. Well again you can trust that down the stretch. And we're just getting started with this series. I still say Golden State's going to win in seven games. And we've only played three okay? But Danny green showed you what he is capable of on the biggest stage. The sport with those special those three in the flurry late in the third quarter. What did I tell you yesterday? I told you Kyle Lowry was going to make four threes. Any made five newer, so where's call Loria as better on the road he crumbles under the pressure to live up to his superstardom at home. And he is a five time all star, so they were making threes at a higher rate than Steph curry was. So in the end I will give you this Toronto..

"Help Clayton's Steph leaves them to fresh off them. He has been that guy defensively and offensively go back to the USA series, the, the threes, that he was hit, you need McKinney to come in, because I think he can knock down those shots. And he could give you expositions on office event, which he showed in the Western Conference final. That's what I think I love his offense of rebounding, and yesterday they hurt Toronto was second shot lead to threes. So a big factor in the game. And I think cousins if has severely limited, I think cousins has to be able to give them quality minutes eighteen to twenty four because I think they're going to need the punch, and I thought his picking roll defense was better than people want to give it credit for. They always want to nitpick his defense. I thought he did some good things. All right. So the warriors shot twenty three percent on contested shots in game one which was the worst field goal percentage. In a game for them in the last five postseasons those misses led. The transition offense for the raptors the warriors have won though a road game in twenty two straight playoff series. That's the longest streak in NBA postseason history, though. Jalen rose things. This series is different from I take let me tell you what we knew before game one, the Kevin Durant was injured. We also knew before game what Andre ego dollar was returning from injury. We did not know boogie cousins was even going to play. That's three hundred top six players, they're not beating the Toronto Raptors with those dynamics in play in a happen. Okay. People haven't paid attention to this team all season. When you look up front. Yes, the warriors have Draymond green and against Portland. He was terrific. They have so many bodies to throw a hill you have that could play quality minutes against him PASCAL. Yaacob ate his lunch yesterday on both ends of the floor so police Toronto Raptors they play well with Coa. They play well without Coa during the regular season. So now they have the ability to adjust so now all of a.

"Nobody seemed all that excited to try to get a shot. Nobody seemed all that excited to be the guy that had it in their hands with the exception of why when you get to the warriors. That's actually not true. Kyle Lowry has had a terrific zero. It's been Kyle Lowry can take a hundred open shots in a row and I'm not going to guard once. I just. I'm just hot that say you might lose if it gets hot. I was going to say it's been a while. I mean he's been great in the series. He's been really good. He's been there. Second best player in their victories. I Kyle our didn't give me any pause at all. When when I look at the warriors, if Draymond shoots. All right, clay Steph goes without saying, undergo doll. Great even guys like Shaun Livingston kevon looney and these guys. So it's basically coming down to two versus one. It's like if you're the raptors you're only worried about Clayton Steph shooting, assuming Durant playing. And if you're Golden State, you're only word about. I mean if Draymond hit a couple of big shots in both of these series that again drain on all of a sudden through a when Kevin Durant went down. He looked like Draymond from three. We got in shape too. Mission. He's really gotten better shaven win his with his fitness was improved with Kevin. Again, this isn't a knock on Kevin Durant. It's just the reality of Kevin Durant, that Steph and clay, and they're all kind of just standing around watching the greatest offense a player in the league duty does, which is be unguardable and make buckets again. It it's a it's a nice lectured have. But the second he went down. Every other guy on the team is moving around dream on probably more than anybody just looked totally energized. Other having more fun like they're literally having more fun playing like it's more fun for them, like forget, whatever their relationship is with Durant. Whether it's good bad in between. Whatever what they're doing is just more fun. This is why everyone fell in love with the warriors to begin with, like they were just more fun to what forget great. They were it was the most fun team to watch. It's like the sun. Remember the sons in the in the two thousand they were the most fun team to watch in the NBA. This, there's this idea. That they can't be both of these things. And I think that it can that they can't be better without Kevin Durant. And Kevin Durant be the best player in the league. Both of those things can be true. The warriors are a better team. Not necessarily have a better chance of winning, but there a better team. Certainly more fun team without Kevin Durant. And Kevin Durant is still the best player in basketball, that it's two. Totally different things. You take him off. They're still the favorites. They're still that team. Kevin durant. You put him on almost any other team in the league. They're going to be somebody that you gotta keep your eye on. But I don't think that Kevin and a hundred percent convinced that subconscious, I don't think those guys looked around said perfect perfect now that he's gone. We can stick it to him. But I do think there's that are they might have forgotten a little bit about what's going on here about what we did without this, dude. Let's show them again. I've got a conspiracy theory about what's going on with Kevin Durant right now in this injury. I Jeff Goodman is gonna join us coming up here in just a little bit. Any chance? I know you said it's over the go back to Toronto Milwaukee can growl with they then lost games all season long. They just drop three in a row. They don't look the same. They don't look like the same team now that Jaanus is struggling more with Leonard on him. It makes everything else in that offense not work as well. Particularly transition like Milwaukee's at their best when they can get those buckets, running, and with Janas, not exactly playing the exact same way he can't do it now..

Who can who can forget, Stu gods, and Dan Levitan are hill. Larry, I can't get away. And then Stephen a Smith the other day, he has dramatics when he talks about certain things. He's like. Walk away. Hey, Jason in four Indiana. We really appreciate that. Because you never know who's listening out there. Not everybody's going to be through what you have to say where you're coming from.

You will keep doing the best. We can when it comes to that. As speaking the rumor mill the opinion mill allows of has been coming out about the future to Golden State Warriors. I'm still not buying that. Kevin Durant going to leave this basketball team until I actually see it. I believe he's coming back. And if he leaves he's not going to the New York Knicks. Why did you go from where you are now so point zero especially if they don't get the first pick in the draft and Zayn Williamson if he if he could not stand the heat with people asking him questions about his future playing in the bay area. All he's going to love the New York media, then that a relentless they're like a bunch of hundred. Dogs, and they got the pork chop right across the fence. And they know how to get to it. If you're Kevin Durant. That's the last place you want to be to deal with that being the kind of person that you are now that it's a bad thing. But it's not gonna be good thing for him, New York's until it actually happens. And I don't believe it is I'm not buying that. But then report came out about Klay Thompson, not happy getting his touches. He's option number three behind Kevin Durant. And Steph curry at ties of gritty could be optional before and that maybe just maybe thinking about the clippers and going over there. If this continues when it comes to the Golden State Warriors and Klay Thompson, not getting the love. He believes he deserves a lot of this to me is because of a rumor mill and be the pressure. Golden State is under at a certain point you play a lot of basketball China could be a championship or nerve going to give frayed as Scotty Pippin ESPN NBA analysts and hall of Famer when he was on the jump. He taught the challenges facing Golden State that they've had not had to deal with before. Joining this great Ron gonna panic us a lot of pressure on. Yes. They must win at home. This is a three-game series for them right now as well as Houston has played against him throughout the season throughout this playoff. Dave. They're being talents. And we haven't seen. The Golden State Warriors be pushed into a corner. Like, they are right now at the Houston Rockets fully healthy, they're fully healthy. So is it makes great for basketball? And I think they realized that this is a dull fight for them. And they must win game five. They knew this is going to be a dogfight before they played against the Houston Rockets. A pretty good idea playing team to lash it at three games to two lead on them in the Western Conference finals and double digit leads in game six game seven at the warriors guy Pippen had a pretty good idea. What was going to be in front of them when it comes into Houston Rockets? So they know about that pressure. They're not worried about it. They thrive on it. That's been a part of their DNA do with worse situation with Draymond green said we've been worse situation than this. And we've made a find our way to get it done and make sure we went to championship but going back to Klay Thompson agent. Roszke ESPN annals had sent Golic and wingo about Klay Thompson staying or going from Golden State Klay Thompson. They have an outstanding chance to keep him. And he said that he wants to be with the warriors the always spot with Thomson that might cause him to look elsewhere is if they don't offer him the full max, if for some reason, they tried to get him to take less you probably see him, maybe look at the clippers look back toward LA. But I think with his situation. It would be surprising. If he doesn't get the full five-year. He's getting the five-year max. Because the onus told the general manager when I read this report earlier this year by Freddie, Cohen of Freddie and Fitz on ESPN radio. Hey, says what you gotta do keep those to any point in the direction of Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson. Now, who's more likely to stay? It's going to be Klay Thompson he was day before. Kevin durant? Kevin Durant may want his own basketball team, whatever he wants. Whatever that's going to be. He doesn't he's not beholden to state with Golden State any this Klay Thompson. But Klay Thompson joys hates Steph deal all the pressure. Draymond had that big mouth. Steve kerr. Do you think then be play my dog make sats play top defense? And then go home with anything else. Even though he did not like ventures in game that has been a bone of contention with my staff a Travis rock hold Mike canton. You shannon. That's what Vince Cates. Vince said, you know, God two and a half hour, Mark. And he's in the comfortable stadium seats and all of a sudden Sam was hitting them in the ice. But I guess but Claes not going anywhere. I will say this. If you're Golden State, and you have to make a choice, I'm going Klay Thompson. Kevin durant? And here's why Klay Thompson Steph curry built Golden State. They were there to help build Golden State. You wanna championship with those guys before? Kevin Durant got there. That's that's that's not a great player can keep both you keep both. But if the rubber hitting the road, and you gotta keep one over the other. I'd rather keep that guy and Steph curry together, then the ran Steph curry. Klay Thompson never going to worry about being a kind of tug of war when it comes to whose team is. That's not to say that's going on now with Golden State. It might it could be I don't know it seems that Durant Steph curry they're pretty good relations on the court. But I'm not there with them day by day by no Clayton Steph. They have a different kind of special relationship because they were there the beginning when this team stunk the high heaven. They were there when they really started good good in the Mark Jackson. They were there when they toss. Mark Jackson, aside and believe it you can't get on the owner's sons nerves and think you're gonna live to tell that tale that is a hill that everybody is going to die on and the owner was not going to choose Mark Jackson over his son, and they chose Steve Kerr. And look how that's worked for the Golden State Warriors. They are a Draymond green suspension from being four-time back to back to back to back NBA champions. But I'm the Golden State Warriors. And they give you a choice as much they love. Kevin durant? I wouldn't part with Klay Thompson and Steph curry together if I had to make a choice. Kevin Durant is a is an unmistakable ultimate weapon, but clan Steph together that help build this team. They wanna championship before. Kevin Durant gaffe there that's not to say that gonna win win after he leaves? But if you have a choice, I with the guys there at the beginning that is still more than complementary players still gifted scores as well. And you're still gonna be terrific basketball team. Kevin Iraq, go to another situation at wherever he goes. Will he make them better? Sure. It'd be a championship team. Have the goals? They wars will that pockets empty. That pockets completely empty, but like I said Kevin Durant's going anywhere until I actually see it. I'm not buying it actually see with Klay Thompson. I'm not buying it. If you're Kevin Durant. Why would you wanna leave that situation to go somewhere else? When you get the best of all worlds, you get to gifted shooters. You got a gift to defend and Draymond green. You got a coach that knows how to man it's eagles and deal with that. And you moving into a palatial estate next year a two billion dollar arena in which you make more money off the court even more so than you have before. Nothing. He'd be stupid to leave. But he would be done to leave that situation. Kevin durant? He's not going anywhere. And I don't believe the Klay Thompson is going anywhere either. When it goes to Golden State right now Denver Nuggets going on the way to having a game six. Games waiting for them with a three two lead in the series. They have a one hundred eighty lead over the Portland Trail Blazers in the fourth quarter, a got a little testy when you get your butt kicking. You'll like it. It can get a little testy and miles Linda got a flagrant foul one committing Fauvist Nikola Nikola Yokich yoke is didn't like it. They got nose to nose as to seven footers. We'll get and then why oughta get back, and so they called a flagrant foul one of miles. Learn it that was the case of referees trying to control the game know what it all also is refuge miles. Leonard is that same year in this game. Eight minutes to play. We haven't seen you all series on somebody's going to pay for that. I was going to be miles loaded one. Oh, one Denver. Eighty for Portland in game five the about the win this game five the Denver Nuggets. Move onto a game six with eight minutes to play in the fourth quarter. My last words on truth in an NFL.

"That's the key at oracle is if they get off hot they each make five threes, ten total or more. Both of them are capable of far more got you. You're going to be in big big. This is what I believe. I believe James harden, Katie will play to a push in most of the games. Okay. Now, you go down. You got Eric Gordon? You got CPA three can they play Steph and clay to a push now. It comes down to villa guys. Get nine it comes down to Capella it comes down to a PJ Tucker. It comes down to down to a Gerald green. See I believe Houston has the advantage on the bench. Now that you've taken Iggy off the bench. Go to bench is not what it used to be skipped. They used to. They used to could expand on the lead or clip into a lead. But they can't they can no longer do that. So now, you are villa regards because your big three should be able to play to a push. Sleepy three you get Clayton. Steph James harden, Katie y'all you're gonna do what you're gonna do now. Okay. Cappella you told me after the victory you wanted the warriors. What do you want more than six rebounds and four points because I'm gonna I'm gonna healthy? Had to viruses last we'll where he should be immune to the virus about nine. He added that many time would you told me if somebody out there on the cord JD member killed on the car and he on the field. I didn't say that the hall of famers, would you repeat it? Oh, so what I say. That means you believe if LeBron James is on that Liffey, no excuses, but cappelli can have few on iris. I don't know. I just didn't look like himself. Lebron didn't look like himself. Lebron was injured all Ron just old. But go to that old. Okay. What he said I won't the warriors because of what happened last year. Okay. You got. Okay. So I'm gonna teen in fifteen. Well, you'd think if they're not gonna play bogut that you could argue that vantage Houston. Yeah. Like shouldn't he needs to punish you the war your own the glass, because if you can't put his place, you know, punishes most teams, but if you can't punish them on the glass, you can't beat them. You got to punish. Dream on on the glass. Yeah. Because we know he's not an offensive guy. He's a put back like you mentioned the law guy. That's what he you can't run. You don't run played for cappella dump it down to him and says, okay back to the basket. And okay drop step or throw the baby hook at something. That's not what he is. But he needs more than six rebounds. That's what he needs to be. I agree and talk gotta hit a couple of those corner threes, and he's very good from the corner. But he he needs to knock a couple of those down. Just have a bad feeling for Houston for tonight. I gotta pad their opportunity in game one that was the game to take will you take control of this series. And you make Golden State play. Uphill. The rest of the way. Now, Golden State is fat and happy that we want. Yeah. Yeah. I'm just afraid listen. Kevin Durant has taken it up a whole nother. So I don't know. I'm going go Golden State one ten to one hundred what I hope I'm wrong. I would I would I need you to go. Hang. You what a half, I'm not gonna do it. I'm not gonna do it. I like Houston I want. I hope for one time in your life your right for one time. Should be right. One time be right on this show. I bid right to be right to know who both how the Cowboys one since we started this show. Right. A line that you're predicting I'm gonna win the Super Bowl who sixteen in twenty seventeen. Boy that's eighteen nineteen twenty twenty one. But careful careful careful into your getting. I mean, maybe when the Olympics come to LA. I mean, maybe the limbic come the twenty two they've will have one two more. Seriously..

"That's the prize me. Most is that anytime there's a thirty one point comeback. It's great play by one team and a step back by the other team. And I thought the warriors defense for whatever reason could not bring because they were up thirty one in the foul. Trouble screwed up their rotations. And I didn't like that. Fourth foul on stuff, by the way. That's that was another one. The only reason that foul could have happened was because the clippers threw the ball out of bounds. Inbounding it. I mean, how crazy is that things got to go your way even to win a championship. You have to have so many things go your Ray at the right time. No team wins the championship by twenty points. Even by ten points. All the way through you need multiple things to go your way. And there was a bunch of things that went the clippers way last night, and it was just unfortunate. But even if you. Look at it. Like Steph hits that big three tied the game. Takes the lead. They're going back and forth. That's three I want to ask you about. Because you live you played this team. So many times it's fascinating. So the clippers I think have even gone a step further than most defenses in not guarding the guys who don't want to shoot threes like they are almost playing zone off of cousins who's not playing anymore off of dream on of Igwe Dala. Like, it's even more extreme like, you can't even sometimes tell who's actually guarding those guys because they're on the opposite end of the floor. The downside of that is when the warriors engage when the words read that and play what I would say correctly things like that. Steph three happened. So no one's guarding Andre Steph passes to Andre and runs right to him. Then there's a hand off and a wide open three. I just always wonder now you guys played them a little differently switched a little bit more. There's no great way to guard them. No. But finding I guess not guarding those guys to that extreme is the correct answer. But it has when the downside. Of it hit it looks so bad. They're like, I wonder if there's a there's a place where you're almost taking it too far and giving them though. But I don't know what the there's no right answer. When you've got all those guys there isn't. And that's the thing you're saying take it too far. But really it's like they push you to your limits. Right. So the very first couple of games in the finals when in sixteen we were trying to switch everything and you haven't it wasn't in your DNA. It couldn't there's just too much action there too. Good Barbosa killed us Harrison killed his Livingston killed us. Their bench was like Clayton. Steph didn't do that greatly. We did a great job of taking they're taking them away. But we gave up everything else. So then our next adjustment. Which we switched in game. Three was okay. Stay at home with everyone and less staying Stephan. Klay come together if Stephan Klay come together, that's the only switch you will make if it Steph and Draymond if it's deafened stay with staff and look at Steph all follow staff, and we'll give you help. But keep coming right continue pursuing and that. Helped our defense that change really changed the series that t- Luke figured it out until your point. You got to kind of live with those repercussions of look I'd much rather have Andre Iguodala open been step Steph. Is there one of the few teams? Maybe the only team I've ever played against that. You could do it. Right. A hundred percent, and they can still kill you. Right. You can execute your defense, but his shot his two quick. They have too many weapons. There's too much going on. And it's any constructed from God knows anywhere. So extend your defense, even more than you're happy about because it's like him and Daimler that can shoot from freak and a half court that it just makes it so difficult to guard. I got sidetracked could buy your very good point that maybe wanna talk about that step three the defense in the second half gallon are hitter right corner..

"Yeah exactly and i also think that there's a way now this is the whole question around mike and tony wright pat and i think he's a great coach i really liked mike way was covering the lakers do all those premium post games great with me days just i really like in general but there's a way that houston plays that you can just like phoenix used to play that you can adjust to to a certain extent a playoff series i and we saw san antonio do it last year essentially just play okay we're gonna play up on all of these three point shots if you guys wanted to take the mid range jump shot the whole time go ahead and we don't think you can beat us four times to doing that i think that eventually that's going to come to pass now grit granted it helps to have chris paul as a secondary creator if you can just run screen roll on the weak side with chris if it breaks down with james harden so that i think that takes up notch but golden state system is so pure for what they have with clayton steph and the printer and then you can also go to durant like you had to times in the finals last year right if you just need a bucket in the half court to so i'm i still think that golden state has that next little level of if they can raise their game too i think they're a slightly better all around team still and so i'm sticking with the warriors man we'll see if i ended up going out that ship or not mike lakers young core versus sixers young core my cohost ni differ if you add lebron to either one of those cores which one has a better chance of winning champs you quickly quickly it's a it's a fun question to ask and you know it's not just the sixers young core that i've been thinking about in this context you think about your the wolves young core or denver like teams that they're going to see in this conference but for this argument ourselves to answer your actual question all go sixers in terms of top end just because i think is already essentially a top ten player in the league.
