"Let's let's wrap up with a couple quick kids on onto of your other clients how thomas bryant and he was off to such a nice start last season before the injury tougher tougher. The wizards clearly impacted their season greatly. Where where do things stand with him. just in terms of his health and his outlook for the season is right on par where he should be Obviously howard entry. Follow guys. I have acl injuries. They usually come back stronger. Not only with the organization has supported. Tommy sheppard management but i've complimented In his rehab. With doc. Know andy barr. Who's one of the best of the best work with kevin durant with his achilles rehab. Paul george with his ankle is one of the best in the business. So i think to be honest with you. Our the injury is going to be a blessing the skies thomas one because again that news gonna come back stronger from his rehab and just the way that these procedures are dining at dr all check do at hss in new york but also and you know this. I'm really into the sports science and health of my clients because he was a you know because of the injury we're able to address some other things biomechanically that was going on with his body. I think thomas is gonna come back and be even more athletic And and be able to run the floor even better and And even will be able to prevent even any further injuries to his body. So here's a guy that just turned twenty four years old shot over forty percent from three had an exceptional bubble And start off the season. Great i think with all the moves that the wizards of made in him coming back in healthy he's set up to have a phenomenal year and have a phenomenal Outcome and free agency next summer. Of course in the meantime they kind of loaded up at his position they caught mantras heroin. That in that book deal. Daniel gifford was a revelation for them so little little competition. I assume yes is advocate. You'll you'll say yeah no sweat for us. He's he's going to be the star and he's howard. I'm big on staying controlling the things that are in your right and in this business. It's very i think is still a simple business business a basketball so for my guys. I tell him have game. Don't don't sit here. Look at the things that are out of your control. The depth say you know what these are guys. That are can actually help our team win. Help our team make it to the playoffs. And i'm gonna come in and just have more game than them. We have more game than the respirators itself out because the pressures now on on the on west unsold in this case new head coach and management because his talents going to be their top. Thomas is talent isn't going anywhere And like i said he's gonna come back healthier and stronger and it's for him to go in there and just compete. The rest will take care of itself but it's no sense in worrying about things that are outside of his control or arkansas when his focus should be on getting healthy in coming back better than before which is the perfect segue for for the last thing. Here your your other clients. Most prominent perhaps client pascal siaka..

"So the conversation we had a couple of days ago about them identity it being identification rather than willingness to spend his even more sailing now but also. This is a notable decision by the memphis grizzlies to basically just straight up. Walk away from grayson allen one year before restricted free agency while they got Didn't two seconds out of the deal yet This might also be a taking the club out of the bag. Until taylor jenkins move could be to say hey About you played the anti mountain and dozen bain. Instead or even john john He's not deliberate shooter of those guys. I don't think so. That probably could be a part of this also but And i think the grizz just identified again. They're not like oh my god. We got to win this year as evidenced by that pels trade and grayson allen with someone that they weren't really feeling that they wanted to pay a bunch of money to resign. they have a bunch of cheap shooting. guards already probably management. Things are better than grayson allen. Even if taylor jenkins didn't agree with that so. I think this is reasonable. What do we know anything about those picks. What the bucks. They don't really have any any premium ones. They have either indiana's or utah's in twenty four of indiana's in twenty five and then they have a few of their own. So i think these are probably going to be mostly beyond forty five so the i don't think of these as premium quickly now to miami lowry three years. Eighty five million that allows. It's basically about the most that they could have done. And while trading only gordon garage and precious a chula and also gives them a little more breathing room below the hard cap left to see. I assume it's going to be the absolute lowest amount. They could pay him in in the first year the by give him a slightly more wiggle room for buyout candidates than maybe pay someone a little bit above the the absolute minimum and omar yurt seven who dominated two games at the california classic is now in a two year three point. Five million dollar deal. Similar structure to gave vincent and mattress. So you're seven has a look like he could potentially be a player at least offensively struggle defensively so far will of course have more report on him after summer league will not to me that miami is signing strouss vincent To two year contracts. I guess they're young enough that you don't get the same benefits that you do with vets the why you don't sign vets to two year minimums is because it costs you a lot more money but these guys are young enough. That doesn't really matter right. Yeah they're minimums are so low that you're not. You're still basically gonna roy not getting. It's not getting subsidized so you might as well just not subsidize it for the wizards. This was decision day for anthony gill who they added last offseason. His minimum contract officially guaranteed today. So it looks like the wizard done because they have thirteen guaranteed contracts than daniel gifford and then thirty first pick in the draft isaiah. Todd is not yet under contract. You don't usually give the thirty first. Pick two way so presumably. Todd will be there now. You could theoretically clear somebody in an ad somebody back. But i think the wiz are basically done at this juncture. Devante green is going back to the bulls on a two way deal. They gave him a qualifying offer. The bulls are functioning over the captain. We don't know the exact terms there we will keep an eye on that Per keith smith writing mcgruder is getting wiped. You and i wondered about that did not a huge surprise but we had heard that formally yet was one of the more logical ways for for detroit to just handle their business. I don't believe they had to in order to make everything go but you know it makes some sense end detroit they're basically going to waste About eight million dollars encapsulates that they could have created it looks like and maybe they still will do something with that but cory. Joseph is the room exception but once he actually signs then he takes up your space They've also got trey lyles. We didn't we don't know maybe slightly above the minimum as well and then they got hamad diablo as a restricted free agent..

"A first time guest. I'm so excited to have because you know we've already talked about the lakers. We're going to talk about the lakers all the time. The lakers lakers lakers lakers. Let's talk about the other team. That remade itself almost completely in one offseason slash to if you count the john wall for rush straight. And that's the fighting washington wizards. Liz boulet the flailing aspiring team. That made a let me see if i can get this red five team. Trade involving like nine thousand nine hundred seven second round picks which is something that the wizard used to always sell to other teams and they stopped doing that and low behold it was helpful. I think i heard a rumor. That bobby marks after the trade was running around naked in bristol just screaming chandler hutchinson's name and writing chandler hutchinson's name in lipstick on the walls. That's crazy the trade was. Let's talk some whiz with the athletics. Fred katz one of the best beat writers in the nba. Fred how are you. i'm exhausted. I'm bobby marks level of exhausted. Right now i mean there are so many names in there and so many so many picks trade exceptions. There's cash i mean that deal has every single thing that you could possibly throw into a deal. It's it's unbelievable. Cash considerations got thrown in there. He's a good player. Let's let me just reset. The washington wizards roster. That's that's where we are at this point. We have to actually just be like who is on the team. Okay here are. The here is my projected. Starting lineup for the washington wizards and you. You will have a blank to fill in spencer dinwiddie acquired in this five team monstrosity at three or sixty two million dollar deal bradley. Beal blank. Ryuhachi mira daniel gifford. I'm guessing the blank will be contagious. Caldwell-pope what do you think. I think you're right. Yeah that would he. Certainly the favorite i. I don't think it'll be denny. And he's another contender for their i. I would assume it's caldwell-pope he just fits really well. I mean i know you could. Argue is a little bit better against guards that he is against huge wings but he shoots well from three. He can defend multiple positions on the perimeter. He's kind of versatile. Three and d guy. They've been looking for forever. And i think they feel more comfortable with off the bench at least at the start of the year and you could throw his playmaking into the second unit and i think that just works works right. So let's go through the resident depth chart. Because casey ep is a reliable defender in when you look at those names. Dinwiddie bill huchon moro's just getting interest third year gaffer. Who's a an exciting pogo stick of prospect. But that's not going to be a great defensive lineup. And obviously the wizards were i. I think brad beal us like four different metaphors to describe. How bad the wizards defense was. It couldn't guard a parked car then. It couldn't guard a grandma could not guard anything else. Was there any other lake. Couldn't guard like a rock. Was there anything else that was used. There were a lot of references to playing like ass and that was that was. That was something that was said on many an occasion throughout that. That's brad's go to. So yeah i think i think there might have been some other stuff that he was saying. Not press conferences to well. Look i mean the the quickest way to regular season Sort of competency is just be good defensive team every night. that's where the teams in new york particularly lasco players has made last year made their bonds. Will this thing the defense team. I don't know can they sniff average. I don't know but the other way that be a good regular season team is to have depth and this team has depth and depth. Helped you stand injuries. Were stand back to backs beat up on opposing second unit. That don't have that. So let's go through the depth chart. Are you ready fred. I am very ready. Point guard spencer. Dinwiddie how little netto who resigned by unsung hero of their team. Last year i will netto showed it really well from three. Just filled every gap that they had doesn't do anything spectacular and then erin holiday. Who was acquired for the twenty second. Pick and i believe the wizards got the also the thirty first. Pick in that draft. Twenty-second came courtesy of the lakers. Somehow ended up with the pacers. My head hurts already Bill when casey twos or twos or threes then you have a very crowded. Sort of hybrid. Forward I guess corey kuenssberg probably was going to be considered a to for them. A two point five. We'll place them to. They drafted him out of gonzaga kyle kuzma denny omnia ryuhachi myrrha 'davis britan's all guys. Who will probably stay time at the three to some degree. All guys who are probably forced to an entire degree and then the big guy's gifford mentioned todd already Thomas bryant and mantras herrell acquired from the lakers. That's that's just a lot of dudes. There's a lot of dudes fred. What am i to make of any of this. There's a lot of dudes which is which is kinda why i think it's. It's plausible. that the wizards are done. I mean they're really really close to luxury tax right now right up against it. They technically did not use their mid-level exception but they would have to cut a significant amount of salary in order to be able dip into that. But they have like you said there's so much depth with the forwards who aren't really wings. But you can kind of play on the wings but it's not preferable to have them on the wings with a a good thing. Russian kuzina has a lot of experience in that. They've the lakers because of their team. Construction has to guard everyone from klay thompson to bradley bradley beal when they played right and he's and he's a much better defender now than he was when he first came into the league is way improved on that side of the ball..

"Want to just get a sense. You're very bluntly mike. How good is this class of players as a whole compared to previous years really good like really strong. I think that you know last year there was so much uncertainty right. You had the pandemic whereas this year. It is like rock song by k. cunningham. He'd be the number one. Taking lawsuits draft is going to be more picking this year's draft jalen green. He'd be the number one pick in last year's draft. Evan mobely he'd be the number one pick in las year's drop like we're not exaggerating when we say that this draft actually has three number one caliber prospects and there's depth all throughout so those three number one overall caliber picks. I need sort through the hierarchy among them. Because if you listen to pistons fans right now and maybe just because the internet has this way of making everybody thinks the same thing. Sometimes it does feel like cade. Cunningham is the guy who's jersey you already bought if you're out in detroit so does that sound right to your bind. How why is there. Such little doubt about the guard from oklahoma state. Yeah no doubt in my mind either. And you know we've heard the last couple of days. Okay detroit still doing their due diligence and all that like they're gonna take care cunningham unless there's some type of unforeseen trade that happens or or anything along those lines like case cunningham is going to be the pick and i think he's the clear cut number one guy you watch today's nba. And you say okay. What's the most valuable position really in the nba. It's that six seven six eight ball. Handler shock creator. Who can get zone and who can make everyone around better. And you look at luca danni. It's you know he's he's the prime young example. You look at what. Chris middleton did in the finals. That's that's like cades floor. That's like if he busts right. He's he's. Chris middleton any also has that like yearning for the phone. His hands late in games So again you can nitpick him some teams are. They're saying oh slow. Who does he get by all that like. That's to me that's outdated The game has changed. He's perfect so the outdated aspect of that though explain that why is that not so much a concern in two thousand twenty one given the way the modern game is played. Well one. you can't really touch anybody right so it used to be so much about like kenny. Kenny beat his man off the dribble right like he can get him you know and and i think if you have positional size. Iq assure enough handle and can shoot the ball and pass then then you get pretty much wherever you want on the floor. I mean it was. It was a lot of the same concerns about luke to be honest. I've said deluca thing. And i like that's a best best best case right like the ceiling. Sure that's this ceiling. Like lasagna is on track to maybe be when the all time greats whereas cade like. I'm not sure he's gonna reach luca danni level but it's that same prototype it so same questions. Can you just put the ball in his hands. Can you get buying one. Can he be this. Big point guard like i say absolutely. He's as complete as a prospect. As i can remember evaluating just in terms of okay. Maybe he's not quite as lee of a passer as luca but he still has the one handed skip passes. The right hand left hand all that. It's not quite as elite. Luca but really good catch and shoot. He can really catch and shoot. You can shoot off the dribble. He was the number one the most efficient isolation player in all of college basketball last season. So to me that. That's not a guy who should have questions about whether or not he can go get you one. And then the one thing. We haven't really talked about most with him. He has a seven to wingspan. And like pretty good defensive toughness you know so. I think this is a guy who can also add value on the defensive end of the floor but after cade mike it does seem like. There's something of a drop off which gets us to jalen green. Evan mobley's so how do you differentiate between those two guys. And how much distance is there between them and kate cunningham. Yeah really really close between these two and again. I do want to say that like cade. Yes we've been banging the drum overwhelming favourite but there are some very very highly respected voices within the mba. Some of which who believe in three or four years jalen grain will be the best player. Some of which believe. Evan nobly in three or four years could be the best player. So that's the type of up side that you're talking about here. I still think. Kate is kind of an era of his own. And then these two in the next group. But i started the year kind of evan moberly over jalen green just because he plays both ends of the floor but just looking how looking at how valuable shot creation is in today's game watching the playoffs man. It's sort of like of course it comes down to shock creation every single time pretty much every time and so for jalen green like you have won an effortless athlete. Like i mean he's been described know million dollar legs right. That's what scouts will say about him. Like that's the way he moves. That's the way he runs that's the way he explodes off the ground just like an ideal athletic profile from a physical sense and then you add in the fact that this kid just averaged eighteen points a game in the g. league bubble inefficient eighteen points a game like over fifty percent from to over thirty five percent from three improved. Defensively showed some playmaking jobs. And so i think he's the second best prospect in the draft because the importance of the shot creation the athletic piece and the fact that he's productive. And does it in ways that you see in the nba and then on top of that. Maybe my favorite thing about this kid. Every time i leave a film session with them. I'm just like man. I love that kid. He's just very raw and he's very real. And so i. I think fan bases are going to love wherever he goes. They're gonna love that. They're gonna love that like he wants to dunk on you. You know and he wants he. He's basically like listen. I'm sick of hearing about these other guys. He's like i'm the guy and he's backed up with this play and so his. His potential is through the roof. Yeah and as a filipino. American of course. I root genetically for jalen green half himself but so let's say houston ends up getting him. Cleveland then would presumably evan moberly and what arrives at the doorstep him. I mean another another special talent. So what what. I also love about this top three. These guys are all very different. Okay so we're talking about. Maybe luca mold we're talking about a jalen green and that maybe brad beal type of like potential. Nba leading score honestly. And then mobely. You're talking about like a little bit of anthony davis a little bit of chris bosh like that that type of defensive versatility and then those type of glimpses offensively like he's not. I said this time and time again. He's not your dinosaur big. It's not like you know last year. I understood the criticism of. Hey why james wiseman at number two like those type of bigs you can go get okay. Like running jumps. He's got a little bit more skill than that. But the the running jumped lob catching room protecting guys like you can go. You can go get a daniel gifford or somebody like de cheap right you can discover. Daniel gathered has midseason and be like. Oh wait a minute. Yeah that is the guy that does the things we need to do. But evan mobely what does he have on top of.

"Maximize your window here with embiid like embiid's career end any moment. Like any time he falls over. That could be it. That could be the window. So if you have an opportunity to get someone like kyle lowry who is a true difference maker. And i i don't know what assets are like so coveted on their roster that they weren't willing to give up. I like a lot of their young players for share like overdoing maxi tai-bo those guys get overrated by the intelligentsia. Like there was there was probably a deal to be had there. The only tricky part for them was a salary side. Right because larry's making a lot so you got to put together a bunch of different pieces but danny green. Yeah yeah i mean. Maybe that's what it came down to is that they felt like they were trading away. A starter bless you know a couple of prospects and it just all added up to be a little bit too complicated for them. But i i'm with you. I would have been very motivated to try to grab him. He would have been nice piece to have in matchups against either kyri or drew holiday for either miami or philly and to me. They're backup plans. Were pretty pretty underwhelming. All right to tie this thing off. I don't know if you had any other moves you wanted to discuss if you do bring them on. We also had dallas grabbing. Jj thumbs up thumbs down. Whatever i don't know. I don't think that really matters. I think it's i. I will say i think it's fascinating that Heading into this season. One of the reasons i was down on dallas was that they lost a lot of their shooting and they signed guys like james johnson and one do and lo and behold we get to the trade deadline and they trade westwood one do and james johnson for j. rettig and And nico molly so yes shootings important when you have someone like luka doncic junior team yeah you sound like me talking about milwaukee's off season you know it's like oh i hate. Dj augustan yes. They traded dj august. And you're in the same boat but with with the dallas mavericks. Any other guys. You want to get to hear michael. Washington traded like mo wagner and troy brown junior that wound up getting back. Daniel gifford and chandler hutchison.

"On Monday, Bulls rookie Daniel Gaffer joined the chorus of those with complaints about boiling. While he said he wouldn't go as far as to hate on him. Gaffer's comments made it clear that he hasn't been thrilled with the experience of playing for boiling. He said. Quote. I'm going to answer this question. I'm not going to read it out. As a matter of fact, I will read it out. Do you like Jim Boylan? This is what someone He asks him so they must be getting questions. All right. It's like arts, which there's a live chat when he's exists on towards so he's questioning. So people know what he's answer here. Technique is where the quote starts. This is from Gafford. Hey, I don't like him a lot, but he okay? Got some things he can work on. Got some things he could get better at as a person as a coach. I'm not going to hate on him. I'm not going to hate the man. Close quote, all right. He's not going to hate the man, but I got some things. He's gotta work on defense there. He's not defending boil in anywhere there. There's no defending boy. I'm not going to hate on him, but he's gotta work on himself as a coach and as a man. That's not zero compliments in there. I wouldn't say that's exactly Daniel Gifford. Anyway, I'm walking back to comments like I got some things to work on. I mean, that's classic. Like I'm not going to say he socks place. Yes, yes, That's basically Daniel gaffer being like, Look, I don't really want to hate on the guy too much, but he kind of saw It's a rookie. A young man who wouldn't be pumped Saunderson way. Thought it was just a coaching thing. Wait. What? What? What do you mean? I don't know. There's better as a person or something. There's something off there. I'm telling you, they're just is the The constant, you know again, what I would say when a coach can do nothing but talk about playing hard. The coach really has nothing. I'm sorry I write right now. Next year. Jim Boylan coaching the first game for the Chicago Bulls, your co Yes, I'm gonna say no. I'm gonna say yes. There's no way we're even though we need who's gonna break the tie for us. Waddling here real quick. I don't think there's anybody could break Ty. That's where we're at a stalemate. We're at a total stalemate. I just I gotta I've got to think it was a point. I think carnations like man I need to know. I don't think he's thinking that. What point does that happened? He might. What? Hell, wow. If they're forcing boiling on and then Yeah, Okay, that's different. I I don't I don't I've got no inside knowledge, guys. I really don't. I guess maybe it's just that I want to believe. That you're giving your people autonomy that you're making these changes that you're expanding this front office that you're You're making what most people think are good hires. That you're not going to tell A completely new group who you want to bring a new way of thinking your front office. Oh, but by the way, you still have to keep the coach I just find it hard to believe. And perhaps I'm being naive here and baring my head in the sand. I don't really know It's what I just like. I'd be surprised, always been the theory that they can hire the guy they want, because he's currently coaching somewhere else, right? She's an assistant. Yeah, I would say that's that's a bit of a working theory is the reason you don't have to make a move. This exact moment is because because they want Sixers the guys that they will interview or the guys that they want for the team with the Raptor that those those are the individuals who are part of the global break the Tyrell quick. Ah, your co and laugh. I mean your co in Ash and the question. Don't tell him whose where, Okay, all right away. You can't be biased, so we got two into will boil and be coaching. The Bulls won Game one. Next year. Okay? Game on next year. Alright. So you're with blackened may? Come on. You can't do that, right? I wouldn't think so. I'm working in your co think. Yeah, me and Black said No. You broke the time. I think they made the change. Because listen, I think everybody is motivated by money. They saw empty seats and the revenues the cash register stopped ringing. I think if you make the change in front ofthis, but you keep this coach people are going to boycott going to the games in much the way they would have had you not made change because I don't think people feel changes. John does not play makeover. Nobody's here. Call that the Koven pass. Like what if the Bears go six and 10 this year, I'm going to get hired them a covert paddle covert passed with you. I'm just saying, I bet you there's a lot of Kobe pass is actually a covert pass in Colorado. Yes, you're going over the continental past the Loveland pass in the cove. It passed right. We'll talk about Daniel Gaffer's comments during cross topped with you. I'm sure so he got a kick out of those appreciate that learned opinion box that you gave us their Here's Anthony Rizzo, Anthony Rizzo earlier today back for another season talking Cubs in MLB with David Kaplan. Here's Rizzo. This is a lengthy answer. Listen to Rizzo talk about his decision to play this season. I think of the end of it all. We We've talked to my oncologist back home, talked with the Cubs, doctors and You know, this virus is is very serious. You look at all the hay honesty really don't even know what to look at nowadays, but Some of you look at is, you know our age group and being in good shape. You have a really mean Really, really low chance of getting it and being fatal. Now. So when it's just the way I kind of live, I don't really Ever live in fear. This is definitely really I have it right now. And I have no idea, you know, so But I think that the risk reward of just being out little play baseball and doing what I love is And getting back to normal is much more than just staying at home and hiding in my in a cave. Anthony. It seems like and again, it could change as you said Dave I day, but knock on wood. The Cubs have had zero positive test for Tier one employee since The return to play started. Tommy Hottovy spoke emotionally eloquently about what he dealt with before all of that. But it seems as though your team veteran laden has taken this exceptionally seriously about staying out of stores and not going To different places, and it's baseball. Baseball baseball. Can you let us in on the leadership aspect, either you or Jon Lester David? Anybody provided to get you guys all as focused as you appear to us? Um Well, I think it's a credit Tio. Guy's not run the mark and everything opening up even before and especially Gosh, down in Florida. I got out of there at the right time. And just not, you know, it's it's the bigger crowds. That kind of Ah Seems like it's spread a lot more so far is being smart here. It's pretty easy with all the options of takeout, and if I do go out, they notice it on a patio and Have dinner there and try to keep it as tight as you possibly can. Mom because You know someone gets this How fast could spread is that's the really scary part. I know. No one wants the No, I think most of those guys are Not really comfortable if we personally got it, but it's the fact spread it to someone and then spreading it to their family members and things like that is a scary part. So you gotta respect to each other that we we keep everything as tight as possible. And And abide by These protocols because.

Who's on your team if you play with James Harden you know you're not gonNa have the bomb of your hands unless you Russell Westbrook if you play with Lebron Lebron is not gonNA play off the ball so you have to find a way to make sure that you can stand for him if you master knocking down shots you Lebron. He's GonNa get you open. Looks he's GonNa make you a lot of money so you know it's just one of those things I think everyone should at least put up two to three hundred. Catch shoot. Three's every summer at the minimum. Even if you play the ball hands a lot and if you don't for five hundred I like like you said it's now it's three for two as you said earlier in the podcast two. And if you don't understand that you need to go ahead and develop that outside today you're going to be left behind and that's GonNa be a shame for waste your talents and what could have been a long MBA career. Because you're gonNA find yourself out of the league faster rather than go ahead and stay in there much longer. So yeah there was one of those things so right now. We're going to go ahead into number eight under countdown for the top ten shooting guards headed to the NBA draft number eight have cj out of Washington state. He's a guy that probably had a little higher on this list coming into the season he didn't shoot the ball as well In a sophomore year as he did his freshman year. But I'm GonNa just take a gamble and say that was a one year thing. He really didn't shoot the ball at all this year. Shot below forty percent from the field only thirty four percent from three compared to forty one percent that he shot his freshman year. What I like about him is he's a wing but he rebounds like a big Nearly rebounds a game gets a couple steals a game and I'm I'm a believer in his shooting. I just think that he he had off year. But he's the guy that I would like even if I'm the Lakers using that I would love to have because I believe that a mind stock in him. As a shoe he shuttled for eighty percent from the free throw line. And if you're one of those people that believes free throw shooting is a good indication of how you develop as a three point shooter. I'm buying stock into jail. And that's something that's well people have to look at is like you said. The statistics have bared out that somebody who shooting well free throw is more than likely can develop that shot from the three-point range to an adequate level also as well the steals from defensive standpoint. I know John Hollander was on chat. Ford's podcasts again. The other day and noted that steals. Unless you're on a college team or a Euroleague team that full court press is all the time steals is an indicator to them. Gm's or people that look at analyze data whatnot. That steals is often. Ain't an indicator of defensive ability of a certain individual. I agreed to a certain extent. But then you may have guys that gamble all the time in the passing lane. And then make it to stills again gambling but they may give up eight points but then guys who if they get their stills because they have excellent hands like Iran are tests then. I think that's where it may translate a little more but I I do think steals amd blocks I think there are some guys that can pad their stats like is that. They only chase blocks on the defensive end of the floor. So they they. They're out of position or they just stay close the rim so they can try to block shots and they give up. Mid-range Jumpers uncontested jumpers. I do think some ways steals blacks can be empty stats but I guess you have to watch the film and look at the stats as opposed to just look at the numbers and that watching the film because I think Alan Iverson for example was the guy that got Lonsdale's but he gambled in the passing lanes but he also had tumbled behind them for br Rondo in his heyday was a good on ball. Defender the later on as he got older which we are very familiar with now. The Lakers just gambles on steals a lot and doesn't stick to on defense so you're right. That could be an indicator but I was found it interesting that he said that on a recent chat for podcast that were indicated for him when he was a working in the Front Office for the Memphis Grizzlies that that was an indicator as far as defense alliance because there but again ultimately the tape and the videos is that tate's virtually everything you gotta see wearing context that lies and all that so. I agree hundred percent slow number seven. We're down to number seven on your list of the top ten shooting guards in NBA draft. Would you got at lucky number? Seven number seven have alagic Hughes at Syracuse. I think he fits more so of the mode as a score than a shooter. He's also twenty two so as I mentioned earlier. Who Know How? People feel about twenty two year olds. But he's had A. He had a good year average by nineteen points. A game shot remit thirty three He's a pretty decent passer six six. He's more solve than traditional nineties. Shooting Guard star player. But he's a guy that if he could be one of the players that we talked about that really develops and a corner. Three becomes more consistent outside shooter from three. I think it will open up the the scoring ability that he has so. I and I'm a believer in it. I think that that's something that he can do. I'm Musica the free throw shooter so I think they can knock down open threes and complement of Guy. So that's why have alleged Hughes at number seven. Does it concern you at all like you said? He's a good free throw shooter but does it concern. You're all if he's in the thirties at the three point lane. Now which is I putting context. Three Point area is in college. A little bit shorter than the NBA. Three point line so that that always concerns me. I mean we talked to in the past about other players who shot well from the three point line in college that to me. I think translates a little better because to me. It's about statistical averages in the distance from the basket of that's the case. I mean if you're shooting the thirty percent range with thirty five percent ranch now does that translate into the low thirties from an MBA standpoint. What I think you also have to Pay attention to the shots. And that's why I think the film is so much more important because even if you look at the NBA for example. And if I'M NOT MISTAKEN. Lonzo ball shot. A higher percentage from three luke adopts. Yeah he was at forty in the abuse like he was in the forties right and but in the NBA. Lonzo shooting open catches shoot Jumpers Lucas Shooting? Step back contested. Threes off the ball but you look at percentage wise. Lonzo's shooter but at who'd you rather have as your shooter and so I think with Elijah Hughes. His percentages like thirty four percent. But I think he's because he's a score. He took a lot of contested in the shot clock. Threes as opposed to someone feeding him the ball or you know getting wide open looks so that's fine but I think that his percentage is it can rise because he may not have to take the same shots in the NBA because he was a primary source of the offense for Syracuse. Yeah he's definitely a score for sure. So do you have a number six for the countdown right now for the top ten shooting guards in the NBA draft number? Six is a is a guy that he's Kinda like CJ L. LV. That I thought would have a sophomore year wasn't as good as his freshman year but I really like him as a shooter. And it's I think we've talked about him before but Isaiah Joe out of Arkansas quick trigger. He shot forty one percents from three as a freshman it went down to about thirty. Four percent this year Very skinny may he's like listed as six five eighty so he'll definitely need to bulk up but he's a guy that I think that has his game fits the modern NBA. He gets still. So I think Hollinger were like him and He can shoot off the ball as far as like on movement. You can cook screens. Catch a shoot and He's he's a guy that I really liked again. I'm I'm buying stock in his just buying stock his shooting long term. I think he had off year shooting this year and Was He was his volume a lot more. Because I would assume would be a more. I don't know how much for the I I'm not looking at stats directly. Well as a freshman. It was forty-one percent this year he's played actually played less. They play more minutes here as far as like minister game but I want to say it was a new coach. If I'm not mistaken as a new coach show Actually it was I can't think of his name out of my head coach Nevada to coach in the NBA. All Muslim Muslims yet yet he. He attempted ten threes the game this year. So he's got thirty four percent on ten threes game as a freshman To eight but he's a specialist and he has a role he knows his role and I think last year I'm looking at the numbers last year. He to ten point was freshman. I'm sorry to ten and a half shots game. Eight were threes this year around fourteen shots a game ten threes. So I guess they're similar but he just did not shoot the ball as well and another reason is because he when everybody's Scouting Report Issue. Ishii believe that will freshman he also had Daniel gaffer his freshman year who commanded not tension as roller But He has he on everybody's down report you know you can't give them any looks because he'll make it but I think that like I said I. I believe that has long term role as shooter. I think he's GonNa be ineffective high thirty forty percent shooting. Nba arrived at the only reason. I'm saying those questions because I'm asking those questions. Hopefully that a lot of these other individuals that are scouting and looking out them out there and looking at him and looking at seeing. It's making sure that if he might be somebody of interest in right. It looks like since he's got onto the team at Arkansas's both in his freshman sophomore year. It looks like he's been used to a high volume of three so I'm just. It's kind of concerning when that goes so dramatically down obvious. The there was a something that went. Maybe different style offense like you said Muscleman came over Daniel Gifford left there so those variation factors that created that. But when you have that type of percents less and I know we're focusing on the three-point areas but I know he's probably got some other skills that interest you well. Yeah but I like him as a defender. I think he has a similar body style or body type past tense Ferguson. On he's not as athletic as terrence. The Not a lot of people are but terence doesn't always show his athleticism against it doesn't necessarily translate on on the floor but as far as like a guy that can like navigate around screens. Sometimes being skinny is good. Because if you're chasing guys around screens or you can slide through the screens. And and he's a guy that I've I've I like his potential as a defender especially because he's good in the passing lanes and But he has a specific skill. Set that you know that from him every night he knows that he's a threat and you know the gravity that he'll provide on the floor and like you said he's used to heavy stream of passes headed his way at three point area rather someone who might have some good stats in college but as only taken like one or two or three shots a game from the area. He's used to going it time and time and time and time again shooting from that three board area that that a lot of other players may not have type experience when you're shooting forty percent shooting thirty five to forty percent from the three area you and you're shooting at a high volume that to me is much more intriguing than someone who shoots if maybe once or twice. A game from the people in area makes at forty forty five percent. Because you can see if you're used to that kind of volume yet. His role in college will be his role in the NBA. And so I think that's important is is that there's not gonna be any adjustments of how he plays is far on offense in between NBA in college and he may not get ten three point attempts again but you never know the NBA's exactly.

"Home. Barn and beating the Lakers. Here's the weird part with them. I think the clippers have one when when you look at least the elite teams in the West those top teams. They have one of the easiest schedules remaining. But is that good or bad with these. That's the weird part with them. You would think at one point they get those guys playing at the same time coin. Paul George they get their their lineups a little bit Make a little bit more censor- evenly weighted than yeah. They should run roughshod over the wrestling especially with an easier schedule. Then maybe not because they seem to only really care against the against this or more of the elite teams but we will see beverly docket and your worst weekend trade. Who Do you have the weekend? Andre Drummond I just feel bad for the guy at this point I'm gonNA reach back a little further. The Pistons lost to the cavs on Thursday. Okay so not quite the weekend but you know an appre weekend if you ask also lost Saturday to the miserable Chicago Bulls and Andre Right drum into me just looks completely checked out. He guys are driving down the lane. He's there he could challenge a shop. He's just not GonNa he's just GonNa Glare at the guy who got burned in fair enough. You're not wanting to pick up fouls if you're the only guy who can really do anything on both ends of the court aircraft has been playing fine. That's that's enough but then eventually Daniel Gifford a rookie Buddies Andre Drummond pushes them into the basket. Drops in a hook shot. Drummond throws the ball at his back just like seriously. My Dad did that to me all the time anytime I would score on. Just whip the ball at me you see. Derrick rose look at under dummies. Like what are you doing. Come on man. The problem is that every team at some point in the season gets to be the main story in the League. The cavs have been the main story in two thousand twenty because they have been the bad team and I unfortunately think that the Pistons are taking the bad team main story from the the cavs right now and drum. It is going to be the guy who has to deal with it until he's traded. We got about three weeks until the deadline. That's a lot of angry. Sad looks from Andre Drummond or what about the rumor that was going around this weekend the Knicks or the team that was interested in trading for Andre John's Hawaii rumors targeting being being ain't going back Daria. Ian Begley reported that but last week he was led the show as a winner because at least he was going to get out of Detroit. But you're right. The next few weeks might be tough. I just feel bad. That he didn't get his his moneys worth for that little BOP. That's what he got tossed off for a little boop to Daniel back. You can't even say he threw them. I'm not I'm not throwing come on. What Tech was worse that one or the fact? That D'Amato Rosen somehow attack for detonating waiting on Chris Boucher and let me fell on him because he don't on getting up he was just getting up. And he you gotta check for that incredible dunk by the way. Oh Yeah for sure but I think worldwide described it as he basically rock bottom team. That's sort of what it look like him down by accident. I have to have a little bit more respective again. After having the ball thrown did not react Ah which is like which is crazy shows just lately it was thrown flying here. I sort of guys brew with him. He's GonNa snap one day because if he can he didn't turn around to do any of the testing and hold me back. He threw down to the hook shot in any talk talk trash so he was expecting some retaliation and when it was a light booth I mean what is he going to turn around but Audrey Germans just frustrated in that same game and that was in the third quarter when when that happened but when he locked walked to the Locker Room he tore his Jersey off for half like for before halftime before he came out for that third quarter so he tore it and he took off his jacket like it was pretty amazing actually took off all the all the way down. You don't see that very often. Luca RIPTA JERSEY. The unfriendly Luca was not proud of his Jersey right there. He added together. Second time. You'll done it. He didn't need to ask you a little bit with it. They should make them play Jersey. Oh you have to play the rest of it gets caught anything. It's your fault. You're freaking out. I'm I'm GonNa give loser the weekend to the Miami Heat. They had a bad weekend. They went over to in New York this past weekend. They lost to the nets on Friday night then. They lost the Knicks on Sunday afternoon. They blew a lead down the stretch in both games. The Knicks was especially bad The Knicks put forty points on them in the fourth quarters. Miami Heat here. Though he'd had their chances says Butler specifically at his chances to tie the game twice In regulation they were down three both twenty one seconds ago we got a pretty favorable call reggie bullock called for the foul on the three point shot. I thought that was the old classic jumping into the guy. Got The call and then I guess it's ball. Don't lie you only make two of the three free throws so they're still down Barrett's fouled while he only makes one of two so now it's a two point lead and then Butler drives. This was weird to me. He looks like he has a layup. Like a chance at the rim. And sorry I should say this was after there was one possession but he kept the ball but then Butler he turns the ball over trying to pass it to ban even though again he has a pretty good look up around the rim and it wasn't really even a bad past like I don't think Bam was ready for it at all thought Jimmy shooting it. Yeah and then he's dropped in the game And and the Knicks had a great performance Julius randle after the passing of his grandmother like Monster Game. MSG was going bonkers. That was cool to see. It always always is. Even the Knicks still stink overall. They've been playing well recently under their new head coach. Mike Miller but that place was rocking but the heat. What are you doing? I mean these are these are too bad losses. Yeah lose both of those now both of them and Bam actually hit the game. I know well usually Jimmy Butler very weird that. Yeah I mean he. He's the closer to a short sean. I know what are you doing. Yeah I think he was adjusting to what had been happening. Taj Gibson had to take to the hoop possessions earlier. He was a guy who was all over him. No Cal Jimmy Butler to take a position before this final play he took it to the rim guile over no cough. Yeah so maybe he's just thinking we're not getting calls here at the end of the game I'll try and pass it off but definitely you gotta twist it up a little shoot at left. The I don't know it looked like it was there because you looked the three foot above. Everybody else was back from Canada by then. You're tweeting about that game. You're right yeah I think he made a decision when he saw three guys. Go go by that. I'm not going to get the shot off any kind of mentally made a decision. I gotta pass it but he should escort it was. It was Taj Gibson. Who is you know his former bulls bulls teammate? WHO's not very young anymore was barely could get above the rim? So those hands were there but from Taj but yeah. Jimmy could've finished that and finish the game he. You didn't go in with the mentality to finish. There's something going on Jimmy's brain. I would like to give one more one more loser the weekend to the insane a prize discrepancy fans hitting half court shots at MBA arenas on Friday a knicks fan. Hit a half court shot. Amazing what did he win. A million bucks know what maybe I guess. Potentially he won a thousand dollars in lottery. Scratch off ticket so like dot is embarrassing. The embarrassing especially for the mix I thought teetering life. Life was pretty bad when the grizzlies did that back in the day for that. Yeah Yeah it's a tough call. What's worse Oh gosh? GRASSI's scratches waivers degree. What if you hit ah come on? Here's the crazy. TAT's the Knicks Fan. One Thousand Bucks in lottery. Scratch off tickets a week ago a mere week ago a Lakers fan netted a cool one hundred thousand dollars. uh-huh for hitting the exact same shot. How is this going on? This doesn't make any sense. And it's like all over the board with these like I did some some quick research. I was watching a youtube. Compilation of half court shots. Hit over the last couple of years or so Up on Youtube okay. Okay See. They've given away ten thousand. I shot got the warriors have given away five thousand also given away a brand new beamer. The kings of giving a brand new car away the heat that one time ago. This'll be a little bit long ago. When Lebron was on the heat that was was for seventy five thousand dollars and then he got a bear hug from Lebron? The mavs of three thousand dollars Also once gave away a seventy inch. TV Okay Right. Yeah the five thousand dollars. The son seventy seven thousand seven hundred seventy seven dollars. Yeses casino was involved in that one of the blazers a new Toyota. The clippers are jeep deep. Renegade the grizzlies as I said the TATER. It's all over the board here what I think there should be. I don't know what it is. We can sign other should be one price for creating a half court shot. I think it should be minimum ten thousand dollars way. No I think it's way more. We know how hard it is to hit a half court shot. Yeah we're all we get forty multiple apple shots at Summer League. This was Madison Square Sunday. He should be getting two hundred grand less to okay. I think that's a little I. I two hundred one hundred hundred grade his. How many times in New York does a fan hit it like once a year somebody somebody hit last year? This this is interesting. You bring this up I saw at Clark tweet. I need Kirk. Gold's Berry to break down. What a half court shot is worth across? The the difference between the teams is big. The price value has decreased increased in recent years and there seems to be a perception that people are making more of them because every make now recorded and posted online. That's interesting little part. There are our people truly making more of them have fans gotten better at half court shots or is it just because we see them all. I think we see we see the fun ones but come on I mean for the Knicks for any any arena. The two hundred thousand dollars for a fan to hit that. I think it looks great on the team. Because we're looking at this team now. Going what a bunch of cheapskates. You've given that basically a thousand dollars worth of garbage. That's basically what you giving is recycled. He's wasting time has scratch. Imagine imagine said Chiesa two-under undergraduate. That's life changing. We've changed over Christmas at the Armenian Christmas family. You know. The GRANDPA grandfather gives everybody the scratch tickets right and then you got those those packages ones like twenty bucks twenty five bucks. But it's got a bunch of tickets in them so everybody gets one and then everybody for an hour is your scratching was a coin and just wasting time. I'm all I need if only I had an e in this word scratch would have one hundred thousand scam. I waste hours doing those because everybody gets tired of them. And I'm like all right. I'm not throwing them out at least got to see right. GotTa see but it's such a waste. I'm wasting time. It's even worse than a thousand because you you have to pay tax on it in this country me too. Don't you think if you if you get two hundred grand. Yeah you have to pay taxes. Two hundred thousand dollars for a half court shot made a little too man. It's the Knicks. Ten thousand thousand minimum again but okay. It'd be talked into a cool fifty thousand or one hundred thousand sure but it's got to be a baseline yeah there's got to be a baseline. Yeah maybe ten thousand is right. I don't know I actually think fans are making them more. Everybody's better sooner these days. You know Steph. Curry started hitting those long shots. Everybody thinks they in those grades..

The clippers are jeep deep. Renegade the grizzlies as I said the TATER. It's all over the board here what I think there should be. I don't know what it is. We can sign other should be one price for creating a half court shot. I think it should be minimum ten thousand dollars way. No I think it's way more. We know how hard it is to hit a half court shot. Yeah we're all we get forty multiple apple shots at Summer League. This was Madison Square Sunday. He should be getting two hundred grand less to okay. I think that's a little I. I two hundred one hundred hundred grade his. How many times in New York does a fan hit it like once a year somebody somebody hit last year? This this is interesting. You bring this up I saw at Clark tweet. I need Kirk. Gold's Berry to break down. What a half court shot is worth across? The the difference between the teams is big. The price value has decreased increased in recent years and there seems to be a perception that people are making more of them because every make now recorded and posted online. That's interesting little part. There are our people truly making more of them have fans gotten better at half court shots or is it just because we see them all. I think we see we see the fun ones but come on I mean for the Knicks for any any arena. The two hundred thousand dollars for a fan to hit that. I think it looks great on the team. Because we're looking at this team now. Going what a bunch of cheapskates. You've given that basically a thousand dollars worth of garbage. That's basically what you giving is recycled. He's wasting time has scratch. Imagine imagine said Chiesa two-under undergraduate. That's life changing. We've changed over Christmas at the Armenian Christmas family. You know. The GRANDPA grandfather gives everybody the scratch tickets right and then you got those those packages ones like twenty bucks twenty five bucks. But it's got a bunch of tickets in them so everybody gets one and then everybody for an hour is your scratching was a coin and just wasting time. I'm all I need if only I had an e in this word scratch would have one hundred thousand scam. I waste hours doing those because everybody gets tired of them. And I'm like all right. I'm not throwing them out at least got to see right. GotTa see but it's such a waste. I'm wasting time. It's even worse than a thousand because you you have to pay tax on it in this country me too. Don't you think if you if you get two hundred grand. Yeah you have to pay taxes. Two hundred thousand dollars for a half court shot made a little too man. It's the Knicks. Ten thousand thousand minimum again but okay. It'd be talked into a cool fifty thousand or one hundred thousand sure but it's got to be a baseline yeah there's got to be a baseline. Yeah maybe ten thousand is right. I don't know I actually think fans are making them more. Everybody's better sooner these days. You know Steph. Curry started hitting those long shots. Everybody thinks they in those grades..

"Ways. It could just be capable guy or it could be. Maybe even an asset played. Try to try to find an undervalued player in the market. Give them a little bit more money. Whether it's for a single ear were some sort of team friendly thing after that and you try to turn that into maybe it's a middling second round pick but at least you get something for it and you get that player helping your team as well and as you talked about with lottery formed that's not as big of a deal and they have plenty of holes that could have been filled by and they're there and also one thing that i didn't downgrade the hornets. It's for was that they some teams in this situation would use the opportunity of up pretty clearly being bad to trade some of their veterans under contract but i didn't downgrade the hornets for not not doing that because i would. I would argue that maybe other than marvin williams and even he is a judgement call depending on your team situation of their guys are negative value contracts. You know like zeller's not and they're not necessarily terrible. It's just that it's hard. It's harder to move as they weren't gonna move. Nick tomb marvin would have been tough cody's our m. k. g. who picked up his option which means obviously he thought it was negative value because he picked it up and that's how it works for player options so same with marvin so i i think that it would it would have been great if those guys were better values but if those guys were better interviews that it'll be a different story in other thing you can say too is that they could have had about fifty five million in space next year without rosier. Now it's about thirty five million and you know again. There is not a great free agent market next year not a fridge destination but they could have done something with that space presumably and now they've got terrier zero there instead and i mean there's another way to put this here for the devices. There wasn't a single thing they did the that i like that's not good <hes> and they have have set up a team now that project to not have a single player in the top twenty at his. That's pretty <unk> <hes> so they're gonna what was your your grade. I ended up with a d. Minus reiterate reiterate. I ended up with an f. plus and the only reason it's a d. Minus was like yeah. I didn't like a single thing that they did but i didn't think anything. They just killed them. <hes> let's go to the bulls here. <hes> kobe white number seven overall pick in the draft thaddeus young three years ll over forty million final year completely non-guaranteed thomas renske three years thirty million final no year five million guaranteed also picked up luc cornet and daniel gifford. The latter in the draft gives the number thirty overall pick. They brought back ryan archdeacon. Oh that deal was archie was three years nine million third year team option. I had that in my head and i was going to double check but glad you did and said <hes> in check. Harrison harrison returned on a largely non-guaranteed deal. <hes> and cetera deal was by a sign and trade and they'd give up a couple of decent looking second to do that. Where do we're gonna start with these guys all. I think i'll start with. I think i'll start with my grade which is a minus and it came out of nowhere. I had i did not have high hopes for the for the bulls offseason really at any juncture and they did a really good job really i. It's it's unusual for team especially team that i have issues with their front office for me to generally like every moved they did not. I didn't love every one you know. I'm not the biggest fan and a cornets fine but i like their draft. You know cody white talented point guard happy be the happy they took somebody at the position because they needed another option there and his potential fit fit things are intriguing and you know especially considering who was on the board..

If you could hear it here in the background, the laughter guys in the studio, did you pick up on the elector the assembled media at the advocate center after that pick first team is that something you could hear that went out on an one thousand first team all a CBC SEC player, the Senator from Arkansas top five in the SEC part of that, all defensive team Daniel gaffer the center that definitely has hops part of the mix of the two thousand eighteen nineteen all defensive team from the SEC interesting selection, because I'm not sure if many of us really thought that that would be a need.

He's a threat of article spacer good offensive, rebound or soft hands overall touch protects the rim. With wind fully engage. He posted three point eight blocks per forty minutes as a freshman flashes of defensive energy. He needs to improve on his motor. Which fluctuates his defensive fundamentals and he's limited, mostly on finishing on offense of rebounding, and he's not a reliable playmaker. That is Daniel Gifford. The six eleven two hundred thirty eight pound Senator from Arkansas, long fluid and bouncy big man. And he'd from Eldorado Arkansas, it is, Daniel gaffer and looking at some of these moxie fun me.

"Year long and the first matchup against Indiana. Daniel gaffer absolutely dominated the game. He was the most athletic biggest threat on the inside. And and absolutely turned the game around for Arkansas without him today. Arkansas is going to be a much different team athletically now they could be harder to guard. And that's the thing. That's scary. For this Indiana team without gathered on the inside Arkansas is much less predictable offensively they're gonna play really fast. They're going to push the ball up the court, and you don't know where the points are gonna come from now two guards for Arkansas, really good. Isaiah Joe and Mason Jones are two really good shooters at six foot five there long athletic, and they can score in bunches in Indiana. I think defensively today Dan has got to have all five guys understanding who you're guarding. And how Arkansas can sports and how the guy you're guarding in store. It's going to be much more of a. Team match up and just be locked in zeroed in on the guy that your garden because without gaffer on the inside Indiana does not have to worry about. How are we gonna come? With a double team. Are we gonna front the post? It's going to be much more about individual matchups, Indiana. Sprinting back in transition defensively and understanding who you're guarding and keeping the ball in front. Now, not only can you guys hear me because I can't hear a thing at any rate. Both gaffer and Romeo Lankford are out. So the top two scores for these two teams are really not a factor in Walberg. Yeah. That's going to be the key for both of these teams playing without their stars trying to get the ball offensively where it needs to be scoring consistently each and every possession, Indiana without Romeo Langford. It's going to be a key for some of these other guys. Like, Al Durham, devante green Morgan have got to step up offensively in the same goes for Arkansas. Daniel Gifford is less of a score. Then Romeo Langford is just as big. Impact? He's a guy that could be a lottery pick first rounder for sure on the most athletic is on the court each and every game Arkansas steps on the court. Daniel gaffer will surely be missed here today along with Romeo length. Hoosier. Well, there's no question. This is a basketball team both. These teams are teams that had slumps in the middle of the season. And then, of course, get hot at the and there's that factor in this matchup today. I think it does I think both teams are playing. Well, right now, I was really impressed with the second half for Indiana without Romeo Langford net. First matchup, Indiana, look, slow and sluggish in the first half. They really turn it around Arkansas played really fast and their first NIT IT Matra this team scored over eighty point pushing the ball up and down the court. They're even tougher to guard right now, they're playing really well this season without. In the middle of that offense guards feeling more free looser shooting the basketball playing with a lot of confidence right now. I think these teams Donna playing really well. And you asked me before we went on the air nervous start to get a little nervous. Has got a great chance to win this game. Even without Daniel gathered in the game a win today. I guess the good Arkansas team, I think would be a very good victory. The NFL on their home floor to advance one step closer. Well, we look forward to bring you the play by play story. It's Indiana and Arkansas and the.

"You can follow us on Twitter at golden winged gore Instagram at golden window. So we're talking about about the NC double A, Mike. But there's a story coming out of the this an interesting one soft more from Arkansas, Daniel gaffer. So now we've seen this in college football with bowl games other than the playoff games. The top four teams in the playoffs. We've seen players skip bowl games to get ready for the NFL draft. This is the first we've seen a this one. I believe is Arkansas sophomore. Daniel Gifford is going to skip the Razorbacks up. Upcoming appearance in the NIT to focus his energies on preparing for the two thousand nineteen NBA draft. That's what it's coach Mike Anderson said now, this is a guy and gaffer thought about declaring last year after his freshman year came back to Arkansas for a sophomore year. He led the team in scoring rebounding and blocked shots. Six foot eleven center. He's ranked the thirty first overall play in the two thousand nineteen NBA draft prospect rankings number three center among prospects expected to declare so his team was in the first round of the SEC tournament. They finished seventeen and fifteen. He was thinking about leaving last year came back for this year. They're seventeen and fifteen going to the NIT, and he said not gonna do it not going to deal with it. Just going to start going preparing for the draft. Let me be clear about this. You mentioned this coach, Mike Anderson. He said he could have left us last year. But came back and develop a better they'd come back for a second year. I know teams that pass on the United. Why have no problem with a player potentially going into the? The draft passing on the NFL. Said we're not going to the IT up. So with all due respect to the tournament has a great, no luxuries history. It's just not that anymore. So I have no issue with this. This one player saying, hey, look, I'm a borderline first round pick to begin with. If I can do some things in this time to improve my status because Mike, you know, how different it is from college basketball to the college football player in the draft. You're not guaranteed anything. If you're the back half of the first round of the NBA draft act. They write that where you get third fourth rounders going in and starting right away in the NFL right on the college draft. So yeah, this what we're dealing with less people as well with only two rounds as opposed to seven rounds the number of players that are actually drafted of will we see more of this kind of thing not so much in the end. We always ask what's next for in college football. It's not a ballgame. Not associated with the final four. Then would it ever be associated with the final four? Then would it ever be a situation, Nick Bosa? But not injured Nichols. Who was hurt? People thought could he come back, but he didn't. But a guy who has not heard a guy who was healthy after seven eight games and his team is not going anywhere saying, you know, what I'm bagging it for the rest of this regular season. You always wonder where the next step will take you wonder if this will continue to happen. And will it happened at teams that make the NCAA tournament right as well. All phone guests that have joined us on the shell Pennzoil performance line. And it kind of almost came to that this year Mike with what happened with Zion actually, right after the shoe gate lack of a better term at Cameron indoor. There are a lot of people that want. Hey, man, should even risk coming back. And because he was already going to be the first pick in the NBA draft at that point. That was known. It was pretty obvious that that was going to be the case. But he decided men I wanna play and Duke is certainly benefited rim coming back. You know, what listen we would all understand it. It's his life. It's his worries wanted to get drafted his his money. He can make the decisions that he wanted to not a bit of a different age right now. So if that's the route he would've what went I would not have sat here and chastise him at all four that being said, I love what I hear heard him say about that. He said wanted to come back with my brothers. I wanted to come back with these guys that I've been sweating with and working with you know, I feel I ordered to them. We're all we're all a great group here. I loved hearing what he had to say about the teamwork and wanting to be part of the team. So while again, I wouldn't have credit chastised for not doing because it's his choice. I loved what I heard out of the team aspect is I on and I love what Jay Williams said to say to us about Zion. Williamson because we see him as a player, right? Jay is talked to a bunch. And he says he's he's he's a great guy and a great individual off the court as well. Whatever you see someone become I mean, he's not a basketball player. He's transcended started out question and with less than one one full season. In college basketball. He has become that guy. So we'll see what happens with him going forward and do throughout the tournament much more in the tournament tomorrow, by the way, don't forget to fill out your brackets closing in on seven point five million.
