Fresh update on "damian lillard" discussed on Celtics Beat
"Well, that really depends on how close you watch the NBA now dead because this isn't the NBA of five years ago or ten years ago or twenty years ago is Andre Drummond going to give you the defense that Daniel theis gave you this year and not just against other bigs, right? That's the old school basketball Jersey City, but now Daniel Texas is Garden point guards in pick-and-rolls and things like that. Think about what the NBA game is now, that's how you have to situate your roster. And unfortunately, there are players ought to sort of one of them who a jillion hoga fir man that did just came into the league at the wrong time. He came into the league at the wrong time. It's sort of happened. You know, Rondo said this fascinating career Arc where the game changed around him and suddenly a guy that couldn't shoot was it was tough to get on the floor and he found a way to what makes you know run to a specialist and he found a way to sort of birth. In the league and we're work around that but the game sometimes can change, you know around you. Devin Harris was really going to be one of the top point guards in the league when he first came in he was had this great year. I think you should start seeing one year with the net and then the league just sort of changed around him and different guys came in at that position Andre Drummond Now is really more of a he's a change of pace row like Serge Ibaka off with Toronto sort of change of pace role player, except you can't you know, obviously it's not going to shoot you have to be able to shoot now. It's just it's just invaluable with the way the game has played that three-point line by the way, people say what's coming next is going to be an adjustment. We're all right. Everything is the three-point line. Now So eventually it's going to come back know, you know, what's going to happen Trae young Damian Lillard. That's where the game is going. It's like forget that five feet behind. The three-point line is where the NBA games. That's the next Trend the floor. The only way to extend the floor now is that way offensively to make Biggs come even farther out to where you can get guys guys now in high school In college are going to be able to start shooting that shot because they see Trae young and Damian Lillard do it and they know that's going to be a part of thing. You know, their tickets gets to the NBA the guys that can make the thirty-foot shots are going to be making ten million dollars a year wherever they found over that is in five or ten years. So that's what would make me nervous about Andre Drummond. He can win you some games in the course of an eighty-two Game season Andre Drummond's going to give you some games but he's just as likely to be a player that you get into a playoff series and you know, what like cancer cancer who had again cannot cancer at a very good year was very effective in spots. But there were certain times..

Damian Lillard Exits Game 2 vs. Lakers With Dislocated Finger
"It's a big sigh of relief for Lakers Laker fans at least four game last night as Anthony Davis comes out aggressive the Lakers beat the Blazers one eleven, ninety eight, and again, that was never even close but Robert. This is where things change really quick Damian Lillard leaves the game. Late in the third quarter at, you're trying to stick his hand in there. Poking in for a loose ball dislocated left index finger he went to the locker room had it taped up x-rayed and x rays were negative. So that's a really good thing for him. His status for game three D doesn't really have status right now he said he's GonNa play I mean. Yeah Antares DOT at. It's a little too early to tell. Obviously it's good news that he has the the it's been. A negative x Ray and generally when you have a dislocated finger like this I've seen some some doctors talk about it and say. The vast majority of people play the next game as long as it's not the next day and so clearly, it looks like Lillard could play. But suddenly rob you go from twenty four hours ago where the blazers were. Hey, with this are playoff we're red hot. This is look Lillard. Lillard play off each star bubble. MVP. Whatever you want to say about them and here they are now trying to figure out. Man, we got boat raced in game two, and now we gotta get ready for game three and we have no idea how this injury is going to affect our best player things have changed overnight literally in the result of that game and Lillard getting injured because even if Lillard was healthy, they were still not winning that game last night it was all lakers. When he left, they were down by thirty wasn't it? Eighty five fifty five or something like that I mean so. The finger thing I get it as we move forward. Jason but you know after game one, they came out and laid an egg and I'm not really all that surprise I know everybody was so caught up on Portland they were all Lynn Dame Lillard and all the you know the upset special I heard all that and I get it. The Lakers didn't. Play well in a bubble eight games will awful I mean go look at the numbers down at the bottom and so many different categories, and then they laid an egg in game one and play poorly. So of course, people were the you know you're going to hear more about it but I picked the Lakers in this series I just didn't think that. Portland was going to be able. Even throughout the struggles of the Lakers that they would eventually be able to to win and the hard part is and what's always to me the neutralizer in the NBA when you talk about teams is breeding team four times you know you beating Anthony Davis and Lebron James Four Times. That's that's not an easy task. It just isn't and I think that's Ultimately why for the most part in the NBA better team always
Blazers' Damian Lillard vows to play in Game 3 after dislocating left index finger
"With the situation for the NBA's playoffs. The Blazers lose Game two. And you say more than that. Yeah, they lost. They lost their best player Damian Lillard late third quarter with a dislocated left index finger up to that point, the Lakers were dominating any way they want the game by 23.

"damian lillard" Discussed on The Lead
"Well. So Marcus Tuesday night, Damian. Lillard and the Blazers continued their amazing run in the first game of the playoffs against the Lakers. Long threes. Tabin and Lillard. Just massive rains. That's right. Dame time says circuits just how dominant has named been in the bubble so far this is kind of insane good. He's been. It's unbelievable. He scored one hundred, fifty four points in three games, which is nuts in any paradigm. But when you think about how the blazers needed, it absolutely needed it to get the the playoffs and the mental just ridiculousness of that situation. How does someone drive? Richard's really up at the Grill Damian Lillard here eight. sexiest. Dame able to force the foul the buckets at Damian Lillard flovent chance to. This game at the free throw line I think we underappreciated day for a long time. You know rigs coacher makes us kind of tally that stuff instead of just appreciate who's a beast. But I have a feeling in like twenty years there's going to be older than barbershop talking about David Lilla was the truth, right? That's how this is gonNA. Go because these things he's doing right now are straight up legendary. What's your reaction? Tuesday night it's a guy from land when you see dame celebrating one of those huge threes dancing to too short they played. They played east anthem. So it was only right that I acknowledged the East Oakland anthem and go down for a second and I was at. Yoyo Kavita. Let me tell you how much I lost it. That do her blow to whistle and started dancing after he hit a thirty six foot three like this insanity right here. This is the most East Oakland big I've ever seen like how much confidence do you need and what you're doing where you are to stop and start dancing right there like people spend their whole lives and millions of dollars on therapy to get that level of peace where you could just start dancing because. You her blow the whistle in the middle of your job. The biggest stage of all right millions of people watch like that's Oakland last week Lillard had a run in with Patrick Beverley and Paul George after they mocked him for missing too big free throws with a chance to give him the lead but misses the first and now needs to hit this one just to tie and he missed them both and Patrick. Beverley is absolutely loved playing the whole dame time thing and everything else. So there's a lot of history of this right Patrick Beverley Sakir for Chicago who knows exactly how to talk trash plays with Paul George for the Clippers to game was closed Daniela misses two free throws and they did a little bit more. The Jess Bach in for the free throws they look like they were at one of the original DEF, comedy jam skits like that's how they were fall into the aisles and day responds by saying Hey I put both of the news out of the playoff asking me wrong Patrick Beverley. Who I sent him home before at the end of game for Georgia's got sent home me last year in the playoffs. So they know that the reason they react like that because of what they expect from me, which is a sign of respect and it just shows what I've done, and he kind of used that as a moment to Kinda remind everybody like where he is, but it also burned him a little bit. So the next game out dame score is fifty one against the sixers then sixty one against the mavs. Lillard his career highest sixty on. He's got fifty five. Lillard for threes. Damian Lillard can be stopped. Reading at the end of the game alert is clearly saying, put some respect on my bleeping main. What does it say about Damian that he responded that way we always hear the legends of the great words where it's like you just man let them do play don't cry them. I'm not saying he's Michael Jordan but you didn't prod Michael Jordan you didn't mess with Larry Bergman you just gotTa let them do play they will give you thirty and dame is one of those dudes where you just got. You don't want to make him go there because it's not gonNA. Be a twenty four, foot three pointer. It's GONNA be thirty six. Miller. San Paolo big bomb outside by Damian Lillard back to back the other one you have a feeling he's getting ready to go on one of those. You Know Eleven Oh, runs by himself. He's GonNa look at the camera, and then your children will be asking your wide you mess with that man. While markets, you recently talked today about his background how he became the guy and the player that we know today and you wrote that who he is makes sense if you know the soil from which he sprouted Marcus as a kid from yourself, tell us about that soil and what basketball means and Oakland you can't Mitch in Oakland without talking about Bill Russell and just the vibrance of West Oakland. Black metropolis there's a richness to the culture of Oakland. You can't really talk about the town without talking about the Black Panther Movement without talking about being in the shadows of San Francisco. The soil of Oakland, has to do with the struggle of black blackness trying to bake it the resilience of going against the system that set up for you. So there's this defiance about you and for some reason, which probably has to do with things like the civil rights movement at the raiders the as at how somehow we were able to. Produce, these teams in his culture this level of success that of defied US Oakland people just have an incredible amount of confidence. It's WAG often unjustified right? Like often brought upon by a grand delusion. Right but it's some cases like it's actually there. It's actually valid. So he's cut from this place where you just don't give up and for some reason, you just feel like you're better than everybody else and people like dame who have the talent and a work ethic to combined with that spirit. That's already there it produces a certain magic. Given lawler trump's. Offer valid showed us. While Dame tells you a story about a game twenty-one against his older brother Houston. What he tell you about the game he was about nine years old his. Four years older, they will always go to the local recreation center they play Hoop One Awa- gave a twenty one. So he's lose it all the time he figured out his plan of how he was. GonNa win all he needed to do was bake would basket because he was so small the only way he could even play with the big news was he had to learn how to shoot so he may what basket and then they were playing all day not three aback. He finally be big brother. His brother was pissed these. Let's play the it read it back. In the day was like Nah he out of Jim went celebrate Damian also told you about his short-lived? peewee football walk us through what happened there. So Day who is the youngest? There's like ten of them and he's like number nine as far as AIDS right? He was definitely the smallest his cousins and family members play for the San. Leandro Crusaders it's part of like the family tradition, but he was already hooked on who at that point. So when he quit, they saw it as an occasion to derive the runt of the litter. Didn't. They all. Share. All fence. So Daimler.
No. 8 Seed Blazers Shock Los Angeles Lakers In Game 1 Of Playoffs
"Portland. Right now. It's a Portland hoedown. Yeah, let's get it on Blazers beat the Lakers 100 to 93. They take Game one. Of this Western Conference first round playoff matchup, and there was never a moment where the Lakers were in control. There was a moment where they had gotten the game back to even but Portland was able to withstand that Damian Lillard with a huge night he goes for 34 points. He is perfect from the free throw line. Ah, McCollum and Newark. It's really did all of it between the three of them. They counted for over 70 points. It was a big night for them. Meanwhile, the Lakers they got 23. Read 17 and 16 from LeBron, who had a big night on the stat sheet. They got 28 from Anthony Davis. But the Lakers shot horrendously not so much about the missed free throws because they were 20 out of 31 Misty, nor inside the final four minutes. They did miss force turning four minutes, but they were five for 32 from three point range. Five out of 32. That's not going to do it in the bubble in the MBA playoffs when this is about offense. Putting points on the board. This was a horrendous offensive performance from the Lakers that had really bad performance is already in the bubble. You are worried about their offense, and I said no there find their figured out there figured out. This is tremendously awful, and of both one seeds to lose. Today I am way more concerned about the Lakers than I am about the Milwaukee Bucks. The Bucks losing to Orlando, Orlando gotta lead and the Bucks lost their
NBA playoff predictions 2020: Why the Lakers are unlikely to win NBA Finals, according to one model
"I'm glad that we finally are getting into like what I consider The meet of the season. The scrimmages weren't doing a damn thing for me. I could care less about the scrimmages that was for the players to get warmed up. That was to give everybody a chance to actually get something on the television screen. And then you know the eight games. I was like, whatever with a games I guess I felt like the Los Angeles Lakers, who went three and five during the eight games. Now they want to get revved up and try to win an MBA title and I get it. That's what I've been waiting for. So really, basketball is finally here. For me. It felt like a guy going over the weekend when the Portland Shura blazes one, they're playing game over the Memphis Grizzlies. John Moran went out and did what you would expect him to do. Ah, 35 points. I think he had eight assists, also had eight turnovers. He's still a young player. He's a killer. I hope he can get bigger. A little bit more devastating because he's a He's a rare combination in the MBA. He's going at your throat, but this year was not about him. Okay. This year is gonna be about who was gonna win the N BA title under an end Unique circumstances. Who's gonna walk away the N ba champion? In something and nobody would have ever thought about months ago. We actually didn't know whether or not we were gonna have a resumption of the embassies in I remember actually being on n ba TV. And when the season was shut down, I was hanging out with my main man, Channing Frye. We were getting ready to do our show and boom Rudy Gobert such positive and then Donovan Mitchell ends up testing positive and then the season shut down and nobody Back on March 11th knew what the hell was going on. And now that we got basketball back, it's real simple. It's what it is wide open. It's wide the hell open. I don't know who you could necessarily come out and say it is a favorite. Vegas right now says that the Milwaukee Bucks are a slight favorite over the two Los Angeles teams. In the Los Angeles Lakers. They haven't really had a great showing since the bubble got restarted. The offense has been mediocre. The offense has been pretty slapstick. The offense has been one of the worst in the N B A in the bubble. LeBron James. You know what you're going to get from LeBron. They sat him a game for precautionary reasons, had a growing issue but came back and everything is fine. And in the last game before the bubble he barely played got in a sweat, and they sat him down. Because LeBron James at this stage of his career, Yes, he's going to play basketball games that they're not gonna load manage LeBron James to death. But the reality is he's in it for rings. He's in it for a championship. He's in it for his legacy. Now. Unfortunately for him, he's playing what a bunch of role players that you can flip a coin and not necessarily know which direction they're going to go. Even his other superstar Anthony Davis. Needs to be more aggressive if the Lakers were gonna go ahead and make any type of move towards an MBA title. That's just the reality of it, and their opponent in the first round is not going to be forgiving. I told you that the Portland Trail Blazers have been on a roll. They have been on a run. You have. Ah, you're kitsch, who's back who missed almost all the last season of the majority of this season is well due to a leg injury. You have a rejuvenated Carmelo Anthony, who's not tasked with going out there and show shouldering the entire scoring low but can still knock down a big shot. Whether or not it's efficient or not. That's a totally different question. CJ McCollum is bowling out of control with a fracture in his back Gary Trent Junior is stepping up. So you might say that the Portland Trail Blazers at this point in time that they have more depth. That they have more of Ah street. That they're coming in with a little bit more fire in their back pocket. Even know in many cases, LeBron James to most, I would say too many is still considered the best basketball player in the league. You might say it's Yana, Santa Campo. But if I need someone to still run me to a title, I'm still looking at the guy who's done it the majority of his career and that's LeBron James. But they do have some issues and Damian Lillard he has his own thoughts about taking on the Los Angeles Lakers. Listen, what little it had to say The lady is the number one seed in the West for a reason. They got the best player in the world on a team. But at the same time we didn't fight a Zhar does before in the bubble, just they argued a sea org Anges Get beat up on. We feel like We have it. We have a chance in a serious against anybody in this league.
"damian lillard" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"Me. Is that the Way Chris I got to do this. This is why would have been a great lawyer? Why is this right here? Great lawyers you lost every case on this show. I. Put. Real hit the bike hit the backboard with. How K? Say, is it not a billion to one jot? There's there's three billion away. So. So my since you. Don't know. It goes new Pascale I had to Me and my feet like you say, I got researchers to the. All. He would. I asked you in the Damian aim at the back iron was that his his goal was to hit the back iron and bounce it to backboards high and down through the WHO is that what Katie did became the an eight backyard win. That was Katie shot that. Yeah. Was that Gitai the game that you had to win to get into the playoffs? Seriously? No. Seriously that's tie the game any tied it then he comes down with a money shot a dame dollar money shot. That's going to at least clinch overtime and he missed it I'm sorry did and then he goes down and loses his man who makes what's going to be the game winning shot potentially, and he gets let off the hook by a completely unnecessary offensive foul by Trey Burke who Viewers over to him and knocks him day man's for it. Yeah. And Chris had the audacity. You say he took the charge didn't take the charge. He's like lost. What are you talking about this? That was shaky clothes for me create. He's reminding everybody has specially of because because the bubble. Portland play a lot of their games late, they play in teams that if you're not really interested in that team, you're not gonNA play a pay attention to Portland. Play in Brooklyn or Portland plan some of these other teams but because it's the bubble and we've been without basketball for so long you getting an opportunity to see just how special this young millennials he goes fifty, one, sixty, one, and those to miss free throws he's thirty, three or thirty four from the free throw line. That's ninety seven percent is that good skip he dame dollar is a superstar. He's so wack, why did the clippers shame him and ridicule him and clown on him? What time is it goodbye? They wouldn't do that to Kevin durant projects. Do not they would not think here's the thing too. Though Dame has never had as good as C. J. is dame has never had that other superstar with right Has had always had Katie or Paul George. You Know Paul George didn't do much to he got with Russ within the much there either now we've got. His big brother. So I just think they were able to dame has one that much because he has a had second guy where everybody else who's wanted a high level even hard and who didn't get to the finals yet or since he's been the leader in Houston, he's always had that Second Guy Chris Fall or even Dwight Howard, before that and. Wanted to high level. So I think that's why they win adding. Because, he hasn't really one at. Here's the thing though, but homer who pepper had anything either neither has Paul George so I don't know how they're going to him. Now kuwa- WanNa make going to do the dollars okay I get that but what the Hell is Paul George. One. When the last time Paul George, but not of the first round what the Hell is Pat Beverley one but my thing is here's what creates skip a here's was stupid trying to do he's trying to say he wants to devalue dame again well, obtained doesn't beat the number one see I told you he's not a superstar will we bear seldom do we? Well. Wait a second Shaquille O'Neal's on record. Portland will beat the Lakers Greg Anthony on record. PORTLAND, we'll beat the Lakers. There's a rising tide of support for superstar Damian Lillard, and now you're saying give him a break there's no expectation. No. Day In his one superstar going against to. It's GonNa Give Lebron James and Anthony Davis. What about that guy named East Mel everybody's still loves Carmelo not superstar always. To me now anymore not anymore. The reason we liked the way Carmelo's playing is because we don't expect as much anymore. Like the White House everybody's talking the whites been so great. But the Lakers seven points a game really we don't expect anything anymore from the white. So if he just gets along with his teammates and plays okay, that's good. That's it with mellow in doesn't cause any problems in the locker room doesn't shoot too much. We don't. That's good. Better in the bubble Portland or Lakers. Let this missed the entire. I sixty five games. Or Eighty. Ago It was five months ago. This is a new deal and a sprint to the finish, and it looks like Portland should be the one seed and the Lakers should be the. That's how they've played. Well I'm just telling you. I say what I see It by superstar standard and but it's also fair and he's going against to superstar is one superstar against superstars. He is not expected to win this series. How does phenomenal but they're not hold that. How when did we claim Anthony Davis a superstar leave? When did we? He's one what That employer how many? Chris. You see what's still does I don't know if he won now Michael, from eighty four to ninety. He was a superstar and didn't win anything. You see how do you keep them GonNa go. That's all I'm saying is that you judge everybody by the same standard Michael Jordan didn't win anything did Anthony Davis in the playoffs run into the Celtics and the Boy Pistons seriously. But he did go you tell me. Old State he ran into Golden. State. Lebron James, and even if you don't want to give a D. that Ada. Is Way better than Damian. second-best player and Lebron is better than day So she'll. Be Sweet. I think it'll go six. You've told US early on that. The Lakers shouldn't have any trouble with Borland you start saying six or maybe seven I don't know what does he? said. Sweep. Sweeping six games you six game I don't remember I early on you just. Dismiss. ORLANDO. Game. You move your song you move. Ahead of ourselves right now let's wait and see what dame does tonight. Can he keep the going here for it? We want them to lock it up before we move on and. Good to have you. Brooklyn. Really to talk about this guy in the next coming weeks..

"Main. You Ain't lying there Damian Lillard did not overreact. You gotTA remember the Golden Rule of doing this Dan or allow you know what it is. You GotTa talk about the Act and not the actor and call him. Spoiled and entitled to me was more of a shot at who he is and his character. And that's why I don't think dame was in the wrong and responded like he did and let's be real he didn't over react because he didn't spill allow. Ns every letter of it. Now Dame hot is hey going to be all with that. Said there's really a spiderweb of issues going on right here and I'm GonNa give you just two of them. One is Damian Lillard hypocrisy. Whatever you WANNA call. I called it Hollywood and day. No I love them but hey I got a call like I said your rookie year. Y'All lost all last thirteen games. You played in all of them including the last six when they were meaningless. Because you guys were out the play offs. Don't forget that that was the team that went out there and miss the playoffs. Only Thomas happened for Dame. So Dad has a point but then the real issue why everybody got juiced up on. This is because they don't think Dan is qualified. They're trying to check his certification because of his career the playing field. And now they're saying you are not the person that can speak truth to power. Which is Damian Lillard and his ability to play basketball? That's where I have an issue. Y'All can't be calling out people just based on their career. If the truth is the truth I would've lost half of by coaches if it was based on their qualifications were and football so I don't look at it that way. I always say if you're speaking your mind and is backed by facts and solid evidence. I'll give a damn word comes ringing from. I'm going to respect it and accepted. So that was my issue with that if ourselves. I think you make some great points. The thing I would say Damian Lillard and why I think it's a bit of an overreaction is because I think most people ignored the comments or is a former. Nfl backup quarterback talking about the NBA. Most people don't care. This wasn't Stephen. A Smith coming at this is an agent. Wardrobe are now coming at him. This is a former. Nfl quarterback coming at him and the reactions a bit over the top and you really brought some attention to Dan. Dan has issued two apologies because he can't handle the backlash of twitter. And I'm sure some of the feedback has been rationalized. The only thing I would say today and I say this to all of us and I think this is something daime will understand. Perhaps as he gets older because it took me a long time. Understand it anytime. You're of significant wealth and Damian. Lillard do about another two hundred fifty million dollars. I think over the next six years and even us on this show bean athletes. I was a tremendous high school athlete. There was a tremendous high school athlete while living in my father's one bedroom. Four Hundred Square foot apartment in the hood so despite being poor I was a tremendous high school athlete that live privileges life in high school. Because of my athleticism I was spoiled and title even to This Day living the life that I live. Now I have to fight being spoiled being entitled and so I just wouldn't reject these criticisms just because hey where I'm from my background or I do X Y and Z. We're all capable of being spoiled and entitled. We're all capable of a lot of negative characteristics by his bigotry Blah Blah Blah. I just wouldn't reject out of hand. I and so I get why he was upset because it does feel like someone that he has no access to someone. He's never gonNA see in a locker room. Have Conversation with has questioned character publicly. I wouldn't let it roll off my shoulders. If I'm dying wouldn't have given it the attention of a bar dog. A hit dog is the one that barks but but the other thing I would just reiterate to in everybody. We're all capable the life that we live sitting on TV talking about sports and getting paid for from our homes that will create a level of entitlement and being spoiled so i. It doesn't matter where you're from. It's where you're at and if you're not self aware you may overlook some things that get the behavior here in terms. I'm not gonNA play me games. Why some people might call this audit entitles. You're part of the Union and your league is in a crisis a lot of the players in crisis your television partners in crisis are you willing to do things that benefit everybody that may not be in your best interest. That might be what's driving people to say. Hey man is s spoiling entitled behavior. That's my thoughts on it. Oh.

"San Macho was absolutely great today on first day as he discussed the NFL's proposal for minority hiring incentives. And what really realistically needs to be done. To fix whatever's going on with the Rooney rule I think the expansion of the Rooney rule have a very minimal impact. I think the problem that I'm seeing with the NFL is that they like making minor changes. That are really insignificant. You go back to the history of the Rooney rule in two thousand and three that rule was implemented in three years later you to Black Coaches coaching the super bowl. I don't know if anyone really understands. How statistically significant that if there is less than four percent chance that you could have two black coaches in the NFL. Coaching the Super Bowl. And so you saw a huge upswing. Barry saw a major benefit will fast forward seventeen years. Later there's three black coaches currently right now in the NFL head coaches. That's a problem and there have been minor iterations to the Rooney rule. So if you keep making these minor innovations you're not going to see major change that needs to be a major up keevil of the entire system that that's interesting. You're talking about two black coaches three years later and then all these years later only three black coaches is that are you implying that that's the result of owners or GM's learning to game the system in other words it was working early on and then they adapted and figured out a way around it. I'm not what I'm not implying saying. There's a there's an opportunity problem. Everyone talks about this big adversity problem. Not There's an opportunity problem in that same problem exists in corporate America. The interesting thing about about where we're at now is that it's a pandemic a global pandemic to be able to get a chance to see what corporate America and the NFL. Looks like you saw people who are in the working class. I'll use as an example. Seventy to eighty percent African American. Who are the Workers? And you've got the owners and the general managers and the coaches are predominantly white. Three at the last twenty years of head coaches have been white. That's an issue and you talk about this being an offensive league. You're talking about there being a trend towards offense of coordinators being promoted. Here's the issue with that and that may be true airbnb office coordinator top F in the League. He's not a head. Coach Byron left which offers according to top in the league. African Americans will. He's not a head coach and so yes. The system is being circumvented but the issue behind it is it is you of of cronyism is really what it is you've got. You've got coaches and general managers hiring people who look like them and that's an issue. That's a problem. You're not hiring the best candidate. You're hiding the candidate. You're most comfortable with your take on. Espn RADIO ESPN news. That echoes the sentiments of some of what we talked to Dominic Foxworth about earlier today. Look there isn't a perfect solution to this problem but there is a problem if there wasn't a problem than they wouldn't have instituted the Rooney rule in the first place and this isn't just about expanding the Rooney rule. This is about fixing a rule that isn't working if the entire intent of the rule was to put the best candidates in front of the right people to make sure that the best candidate candidates get hired no matter what they look like. Is that happening? I think we all know the answer to that is no..

"Situations just asked Russell Westbrook and Paul George how they feel about him with the ball in his hands. When crunch Tom's arrive we know what Damian Lillard do especially James Harden because he did James Harden the White House those boys against Houston and the postseason years ago. He's a big top performing big moments. He's perennial all star is special and by the way a beautiful rap artists to which you can speak about. Max If you so choose what I would say to. You however is this. I Love Him and C. J. mccollum together. They are an elite back. Court I don't believe the two of them together based on how the League is constructed can win a championship together in Portland. So one of them has got to go for you to acquire assets for the other to be to shine without having shared the basketball. I think that's what it's going to take. I don't think you're going get that unless one of them has moved. Which is why I say I have told I have told Damian Lillard this he will tell you. I said New York City even though because as being biased Max as the Knicks Fan but the Lakers I would love. Could you imagine if Lebron head Damian Lillard to kick the ball out to my God? Lois have mercy. I mean low us. I'm sorry I got distracted. I just fantasize it. I just thought Spanish right now. Lebron James and Anthony Davis with Damian Lillard kick the ball out to who could pull up from forty literally forty. I mean Oh that would be something special. But I'm allowed to fantasize I'm allowed to dream that ain't gonNA happen but that's what I think it would take. I don't believe that Damian Lillard will ever win a championship in Portland. Because I don't believe Portland will ever have the assets to win the chip in that city. I just don't even. I don't believe that time is money. Money is time when you stay focused. Man You look up and your money is fine. Dan Dollar Dame Corron Damian Lillard can win a championship. It's possible but in order for that to Happen Mule. She can't just be a very good. Gm which he is. He's a very good excellent. He has to be a hall of fame. He has to be encouraged. And what do I mean by that? Prime Prime Free agents. Don't sign in Portland. They never have. Maybe they will sometime but like people really need to think about this new only cities that rhyme time free agent signing. I don't mean guys who might make an all star team. I mean guys who might win an MVP or warm weather cities and major metropolitan areas even with the history. Because they don't do it in New York until K. D. in Cairo did in Brooklyn but the Knicks. Don't get prime-time free agents. Really Allan Houston me. So so what do you have to do? Can Lillard be tied for the Best Player in a championship team for him to win a championship? He's going to need another guy at least was good as him. Cj mccollum excellent that nurtures excellent not as good as those two but very good piece. They share done a great job getting talent to Portland through the draft. What they need to do now is probably draft and develop a wing who can be an all star caliber player. I take your on. Espn news. I'm not going to react to anything. The blazers need to drastically differently. Because let's understand it. They came into. The season was sneaky expectations now. The fact is to to some injuries and slow start. They didn't meet some of those expectations. But do we believe that they can go on a run. I don't know if I'm a blazers fan. I still think that man if we get some truncated version of the season and a playoff moving forward. It's going to give me opportunity to get something done and do something special. That straight talk straight. Talk wireless everything. We're less only at Walmart. We WanNa keep taking your take. You guys fired up about all things. Rooney rule I take your take on. Espn RADIO ESPN news. We've had a lot of discussion about it today. I'm happy to let you guys becky Minnesota Becky. What are your thoughts? What you got on the rule. Well I'm looking at a little different take and then. It's more career path between coaching and playing. Because all these coaches have college degrees and I know Mike Tomlin and Brian Flory's and anthony land all went and got their college degrees and so I'm just wondering if more people need to stay in college getting that cue. Well yes as the money used to be so much different between the NFL and college football did they. Were much different tracks. You know you wanted one of the other you wanted the NFL for bigger profile bigger money. That's no longer the case. So yes there is some level of the ability to go back and be part of the college game. I think for that though for a lot of coaches comes down to what really excites you. A college coaches especially assistant coaches in the college game. We're faced with so much recruiting work to do so much work doing tracking students. It's really about a love the university you go to versus a pro NFL coach. Who is immoral situation where there about the a nose? It's supposed to be about moving forward in that sense so I understand what you're saying about the degree now. Part of that is because when you're done playing trying to figure out what's next so are you going back and finishing your degree on a necessity out of. I don't know what I'm doing my life right now or out of going straight into the pipeline of being able to coach. I will say this. If you've been a successful quarterback that knows how to teach the game teach the position of quarterback. I don't know the degree necessarily helps you on that too much and without going into my other tangent. This is why I do believe that athletes should be given the opportunity to major in their sport. If you had the opportunity to major in football like I had the opportunity to major in Violin. Performance that exists. Then you could actually learn things that you need to know to make you a better coach. Schools could be doing things to help the coaching tree. In General Allen Pennsylvania always love it when alcohols al. What are you got man? What's your take on this task? Jason thanks for taking my call Before I get started I want to ask you a question I do you. Do you know who the first minority head coach was to win a super bowl? Tom Flora's I believe okay. Yeah absolutely right below writers. Yes absolutely you know and he wanted to. He wanted to them as a matter of fact here. Here's a guy that Al Davis Was hiring minorities. He had hired to minority coaches before anybody else. I ever hired one because later on in that. Same DECADE HIRED. Art Shell Tom Floors naturally. Use IT I two in which you know. He won two super bowls. Which made Jim Plunkett? The first minority quarterback to win a to win a super bowl. And I. I've always taken objection to the this being called the Rudy rule when Al Davis hiring minorities long before this Rooney rule came out. And you're not. You're not wrong about that. I think it's called the Rooney rule because it was the rule family that that proposed the rule be instituted. But I've long since that as a raiders fan. I'm proud of the fact that Tom Floors. Our show. Our coaches that were hired without question and in fact when I have high level questions on what things mean around. Nfl The the NFL topics. I've got something really deep. I need an understanding on amy. Trask is somebody. I go to on twitter all the time. That was a front office. Executive for the raiders as well. So you know I wanna live in a world where every team hires male female black white doesn't matter what your nationality is doesn't matter where you're from just matters. Can you coach. Can you run a franchise? That's where we WANNA live. Unfortunately that's just not happening and again as Jim. Trotter pointed out when he tweeted about this from the NFL network when he pointed out we have the lowest rate right. Now that we've had in seventeen years now should be pointed out as was tweeted by the NFL network and trotter as has been verified by ESPN right now. It looks like the proposal that we've been talking about to vote on. This has been tabled. This is from Jim Trotter. A little bit ago said. Nfl owners have tabled a resolution to incentivize the hiring a minority coaches and general managers per source. I'll go back to the name. I just mentioned amy. Trask who I think is smarter than virtually everybody on this. Who then quote tweeted and said this is what is most often done when they're not not enough votes to pass a proposed resolution. Trust me on this. Okay I do trust amy on this she would know so what we what she's saying is this isn't going away but there's not enough votes right now to make it happen so it's at least temporarily tabled. We're not tabling your take on it..

I seriously that that data is the best playoff game. I've watch almost felt like Golden State and LeBron kyri hitting the shot. I was just completely riveted. So let's start with their listen. I'm not going to bring out the hammer on Westbrook today. What's the point? Why be mean-spirited? I'm not a bully that game wasn't about Westbrook game was about Damian Lillard that the series was about Damian Lillard Westbrook. Got your to the series just like movie stars gets into the theater, and then you watch the movie and you realize there's a new movie star. It's official Damian Lillard has moved himself in to the top four elite point guards in the league. I'd call them the killers Steph, Hardin Lillard and Kyrie pay are the killers. You don't want the ball near their hand with a minute left Westbrook. Okay. I'll be a jerk. Once he is the momentum killer that final sequence Oklahoma City had this game on it was going back to the mid west the final sequences. What just drives me crazy Paul George was absolutely on fire fourteen of twenty shots. If it wasn't for Lillard. Amazing series. Paul was it was Paul verse Damian series and Westbrook had the ball. And you'd think you'd want to get it to the hottest guy in the world, not named Damian Lillard. And here's what transpired. Shot clock and gave black Westbrook. Another lai-ha. I mean do forced up percent Rozov rebound a tape unify ballgame Daime, we'll bring it up before our team. We want the last data clears midpoint. He's gone eleven tied at one fifteen proud rising defeat George role defense Lillard spread floor muehler reporting seven working down to two to one three. Series of walk off, very problem. Unbelievable. Again, this is not about hammering Westbrook. I said it yesterday. He's a relentless talent uneven a little stubborn for me. But he's moving away from the current game. Lillard is an amazing talent who's moving toward it that final sequence one guy put on a nineteen ninety-five move trying to draw the foul. The other guy pulled up and nailed a thirty seven footer. It's the way the world works. You can still defend Westbrook. Hell of a talent you can still idolize him by his jersey. I get it. He's fun. He got us all into this series. He got us into the theater. I watch him constantly Westbrook gets me to the theater. But once I watched the movie, I like, the new young movie star the twenty eight year old who went to Weeber state who's up in the northwest. He's the new movie star. He's a killer, by the way, I can put up the stats and the numbers. It was lopsided one guy. Thirty three a game on average twenty to one shot. Forty six percent. One shot thirty six Westbrook had. Minus forty-three in this series Lillard at plus fifty five again, there's no reason to drop the hammer. No reason to bag on the old movie star. I just like the new one I just like the new one last night. Listen westbrook. Got his triple double. He's a he's he's a monster. He's a triple double monster. He's an athletic tornado. He's unbelievably relentless..
