"He's far removed from that. It was a playoff series we lost. And he's doing his own thing in Brooklyn and Philly's doing their own thing. And we all move forward, you know? One play there's a lot of plays that people have had in the past and in the future that don't define them, but have been tough situations. I think you brought up a really smart point though, Danny, which is that it's not just that it happened. It's that it happened and then what followed, right? What followed was, you know, some criticism internally. Obviously a lot of criticism externally. And then deciding, I'm not playing for this team again. And then all the drama that followed and eventually a trade. And so instead of it being a moment that's then followed up by in a normal course of action, right, maybe a few months later you come to camp, you talk about it once more, then you start playing preseason games. And if you're still with that team, you start playing and everybody just starts focusing on the new season and where things are headed. But instead, we had a year and a half of no Ben Simmons. And so it's still like, oh, this is the last thing that happened to him before all this other drama and a trade demand and all that in this rift and you know, like it's all of that just kind of, I think, inflated that moment even more in our consciousness, made it, you know, kind of a flash point for the entire Benjamin's discussion, the breakup with the sixers. All of that, right? So it just, it's the context and the combination of events. So I think you're right. Yeah, that's why it sits in people's minds. It's the last thing they remember, I guess. And the fact that, you know, a lot of people at home are professional analysts or professionals in their past life. They're also professional doctors. They're also a lawyers on Twitter. Everybody is a professional, everything. It's incredible. They've all got advanced degrees. It's amazing. They know the game. They play the game at some point. So they know exactly what's going on what happened, what he should have done what could have been. And if you're not doing what they would have done, you're soft, or you're not this, you're that. And they have something to say. So, you know, if you give people more reasons to be negative, people just can't wait to talk trash about somebody. That's great. What's that special? Maybe give them reason to when you give them more reason to, they just can't wait to just pile it on. And once he made the play and didn't decide not to play, just gave them more fuel to be like, oh, if we could talk more to trash about Ben.

"You guys saw the nets this week, which means you got to see your old teammate Ben Simmons. It is early yet. He's been offering a year and a half. He's never played with these guys before. He's had back surgery. There's a lot, but the early returns, you know, you don't want to overreact, but that's all we do in this league. All we do in the media with the sleeves will react everything. When you guys, if you didn't, all right? I know. But all right, but Ben Simmons does not look that assertive at the moment, and that of course is raising early flags about just where he's at, whether it's physically mentally both because those were both concerns, obviously, over the last year and a half. And I don't say that lightly. Those were serious things that kept him out of the game. What did you see when you got to see him up close the other night? Well, he said hello. We spoke and I spoke to him about a month ago brief some in New York as well. I was patty's my guy is there, so the tour Australians said hello, spoke, chop it up, just hit us up. But he looks like he's doing better mentally, doing well. I think he's still trying to figure out where he fits there. You know, it's a lot different for him. He does bring the ball up, but the ball is really not in his hands as much as it was in Philly. And that's an adjustment. So he brings up some time, sets a place, but he's really going to the dunker a lot. But I do think the back is affecting him, or has affected him to where I don't think he's a 100% himself yet. And you could tell he doesn't have his speed as explosiveness or his lift. Like he used to, because I think his back is, he still, I guess, building it up. I think he's still strengthening it. But I think it's going to take some time of not just that healing and getting back right, but also think of him taking time to get in a fit with Kyrie and KD. It's not easy. So when you take the ball of a guy who has 90% of the time, he's in Philly to take 10 billion like a post guy, it's a lot different type of aspect and type of game from the play. So he has to make a lot of adjustments. But defensively is that even that defensively, he's still very solid. But it's going to take some time. So I thought, I thought he played less minutes, but for the minute he was in there. I thought he looked decently okay, but you could tell he's still favoring something.

"This is against the nets I'm watching that game and he just looks like he's just absolutely comfortable drilling shots going toe to toe with vets like they're doing a really nice job there and if they get a small market keeping a team together is tough but you know high potential very good guys and I like Jake I like D rod but Santi is 6 ten, 6 11 7 shooter shooting big that can do a little bit of everything and he reminds me of I was he's from Spain so anybody can compare him to. It's just tough. This is tough comparison and I'm still a long ways to go, but he's a very much like a pal in this generation. You know, he's more of a perimeter power Gasol. You know what I'm saying? You know, came in very light, kind of flimsy, then those body well. Obviously pal grew into power was very good from a start. But it took him a while to figure out this league in his body, and obviously puzzled champion multiple times over and has thousands and thousands of points, but he has that type of touch. You can shoot it very well from three. He can make moves, power can make moves, I probably was moving back to basket guy. Do that or have it yet because this league is really not that much back to the basket anymore. But I think he's capable if he were to, but he's just got to find that grit and that edge a little bit, but he has the tools and the potential. And said, my comparison is like a watered down power saw. A very, very watered down problem set. It's not just very good. Potential to get there. Yes. A lot of potential to get there.

"San Antonio, you know, some of the guys are from Texas and from the south. How Timmy 20 month? How is pop the eggs by a lot of coaching staff too? Comparing it to Taylor and I'm like, you guys have a really good here. Enjoy it and don't leave, you know? And they ask about certain cities. You know, in Tennessee, you got no states. I think there's no state taxes. You get more money. If you can, you might want to stay here. That's a good spot to be in. Yeah. So a lot of great questions. There are very high acute young group and have mature for their age. I don't realize how young they are till they tell me because they seem a lot of older because of how much smarter in life they've been through. All right, that same group of names keeping in mind that I just read off, it's now 15 years from now, 20 years from now, whatever, and it's your kids. Who's the one you're telling the most stories about about, you know, I had this teammate and you wouldn't believe, like, who are you telling the most stories about? Who made the biggest impression in that regard? Well, hopefully my kids are smarter than me. And have some IQ and the stories I share with them it doesn't go viral on TikTok or who knows what the next social media would be. I'll probably leave out names. I probably leave out a name, but there's a lot of guys that have stories of what to do, how I did it the right way. And of what not to do. And all those names are on the part of spectrum. Obviously, Timmy, Tony Manu Braun, Kauai, those guys are great people, great examples that choose from. There's some other guys that say, you know what? This guy was really good, but he was so talented. He didn't have to do some of these things. And there's some guys that are really good that kind of ruined their careers by doing these things. So there's a bunch of guys that can tell stories about and some of them are role players. Some of them are star players. But I'll tell my fair share of stories about each one of them because I'm sure there'll be life lessons when it comes my kids make mistakes that every one of those stories can give them an example of what to do and what not to do and how to grow up and how other people even professionals have been through it. I'm just gonna guess that the most family unfriendly least principal stories you're going to involve Shaquille. That's just gonna be my guess. You don't have to.

"We need to get better at, defensively, and that's where I come in and try to help them in mature, but it can be frustrating from all aspects, but I think which makes it easy is that the kosher stuff, the front office, and the players, they all respect my opinion, and what I have to say when I do say it, and I'm not always trying to say something all the time. You know, chime in when I need to and I feel necessary. And I try to give them my input in my opinion. And a lot of them, they ask questions and they look and they really take it in. I mean, it seems like a high character group, which I'm sure certainly helps. You also have three championship rings, which I'm sure certainly helps in terms of your gravitas, right? That might help a little bit. It helps a little bit. For them to respect me. But yeah, they're all great kids. Not to get the specific stuff that might happen in the heat of a game or a practice or whatever you might point something out to a guy that's very specific to the X's and O's or positioning or whatever. But I mean more broadly in terms of advice, tell me something that you feel like you hear yourself or find yourself constantly telling the youngest players who are only in the league for a couple of years and are still trying to find their way, figure out what the league is about. What are your go to bullet points? Man, it's crazy that it happened so fast, but I catch myself feeling like and I kind of put myself in Timmy Tony and mom and shoes because I was a young one for them. And I'm like, damn, now I'm looking at, I know how they did 20 years. They've done so he played for so long. But I remember some of the things how they acted and now I see why. They didn't get too excited about things. Or why they didn't hear one thing. It's a loss. Young kids, like one loss you think about it so much. You watching so much film, you in tune over the years, that kind of thing. You kind of know your personality, you kind of know what shots you took. You watch some film what's needed. You don't have too many. You don't get too excited about one player or one game because it's 82. You got to play a bunch of them. I didn't play out. And a lot of times, you know, regular season doesn't mean anything, half the time. And wouldn't say anything, but it's not as important. You wouldn't regular sing or be in a certain team in a regular season does not mean you're better than or you're a champions. So I find myself one encouraging and continuing to push them to be confident. Because that's a big thing in our league, excuse me. And that can change, make or break a player, and other night, you know, David variety shooting. He missed a couple shots, you know, Jake, laravia, all those guys are younger. They're really good players, but they can shoot. But if they miss one or two, you can see they're kind of and even John concert. I'm like, yo, keep shooting them, because we're going to need it. I don't care if you go zero for 9. That one for ten might be the basket. That'll change the curve for us in the fourth quarter. And you don't go one for ten if you stop shooting. So I continue to push the confidence. I continue to keep stick with it and Santa say pound The Rock. But just keep at it. And just don't get too too high, I get too low, you know, just stay the course and things will turn out just fine.

"We in the media do this a lot and you're part of the media. So you'll be doing this too. We talk about veteran wisdom and the importance of that and everything. And it's almost becomes this like crutch or cliche for us. What do you think it actually means, Danny? Because you've been on both ends of this, right? Like you come into the league in 2009, you're the guy trying to find your way. You probably had your vets that lead, you know, you wake up one day and all of a sudden, you're the vet. On the writing side, yes, it's a blur. So what does it mean to you that you are when they bring you in and there were questions about whether are they actually going to keep Danny Green? Are they going to re trade you? I think your contract at a clause where it was only, I think you might have had a partial guarantee, so there was a possibility of being like, it wasn't clear, but they want to keep you because as you noted, you're not playing, but you have value to this team even before you spend a single minute in the rotation. So define that for me in terms of what the coaching staff has asked of you, what Zach Klein in the front office is asked of you, what the young guys are asking of you. Zack's been amazing. So is Taylor, but it means the world to me that they believe in that. And they believe in me. And the fact that they give me an opportunity to come back, they believe that, you know, I'm work hard enough to put myself in a position to be able to help this team, but even if I wasn't, they thought that I'm valuable enough that my IQ, my mind and maturity, and the book I've known is valuable enough to help this team mature, which it means a ton to me. You know what I'm saying? I can't even describe it words. But Zach has a great thing going. He's been amazing. Tells had a great thing. And that's my job right now is to try to leave a good impression or to help these guys matured, understand what it takes to win. I would say they have some time. We have it still early in the season. It was a lot of time. I've had a lot of room for growth, which I love. They have the right approach to have right attitude to perfect atmosphere for it. But yeah, this environment this atmosphere, what they brought me in to do. I said, it means the world to me. It means, I don't see myself in that light, but it's crazy. As you see, look at the roster, I didn't realize how young they were last year. I think there was second youngest team behind OKC. And they might have gotten younger when we lost Kyle Anderson. I don't know. And even the staff is young. So I'm illegal. You're older than the GM, by the way. Yeah, I'm older. I'm older than most of the staff.

"I would love to build a rhythm with this group. I would love to understand the spacing on the floor of the chemistry, the coaching staff organization, and get a feel for it full on. I actually have a good feel for it now, but it's a lot different when you're not playing. So yes, my goal is to get as soon as possible. Obviously I can't get out there next month. I am a little over 5 months now. And like you said, it takes about they say a ten to 12 months, but you know, my goal is a little bit before that. We're on a really good pace. I like where I'm at. But speaking of, like you said, the athletic system, you know, we talk about athleticism, given the fact that I'm one of those guys that doesn't need to be very athletic and my game is not built up. Athleticism. I don't need to, you know, I guess worry about, I mean, I still worry about retailers, it's not important to prevent that. But because of the fact that I'm not, I mean, I may try to block a shot or two or get some rebounds because I'm not a planet about the rim of a bunch and running a million miles an hour with the ball. I'm a corner to corner guy based on the baseline type of guy. Just make sure I got my lateral quickness back. I think it's easier for me or I'm able to get back to myself a little bit quicker than the guys that are jumping 40 inches in the air. And that are more athletic. But yes, my game is very simple and I think I can get there even before feeling like myself, but I want to be feeling like myself, but I know that my game is something that I don't have to be a 100% to be able to explode to play. As long as I can run, as long as I can slide, you know? Because I'm not crashing the offensive boards anymore. Thanks to Joelle. And I'm staying clear of that. And defense boards the box guys out, I think. But I don't have to jump as much of a block. I'm not taking risk as blocking any shots anymore. So it should be a pretty good adjustment. I should be it shouldn't be that as hard of a transition of when I'm ready when my leg is ready and strong enough to be able to play my game because I don't I'm not doing what y'all does jumping 40 inches in hang time and climbing people's chests. So yeah, I'm excited about it, but we're in a really good spot without giving up too much information. I think the other thing that's going in your favor too is just where you landed, right? This team won young, a lot of young legs to there's good depth there on the perimeter like you've had a career where for years, whoever the best perimeter player is on the other team, like you're often having to check

"Sideline and help mentor and help a team mature, which I'm kind of doing now. Maybe another year or two of that. So who knows? I would think at least three or four years at the minimum probably at least three years, four years, maybe more. Maybe a year or two more. A little udonis here and there. I don't think udonis has ever retiring. I think like 20 years from now, he still could be president supposed to be coaching udonis will still be the 15th man. Yeah, at this point, it's like, man, and I guess I think he wanted to sensitize to his house to get him to come back or I don't know. I heard many different stories, but good for him to keep it going. Are you still in good shape? He's still able to teach about the coach. He's still about to get in practice and do his job and travel with the team. And he has an impact, even though he doesn't play a ton of minutes will play much minutes at all, but he is an impact for that group and that organization. I think if you got a couple things going in your favor, Danny, like I feel like it's the cerebral players of which you checked that box who I think are able to extend longer because you're not over reliant on athleticism and then also because not over reliant on I think like the guys who are the guys who are really explosive speedy whatever at some point that stuff goes and if that's all you could hang your hat on for a career, then you're usefulness runs out a lot sooner. So like you're a guy not to knock your athleticism, but you're not somebody who won your spot in this league and had a long career based on leaping over dudes, right? Yeah, I'd say I'll take it as a compliment man. No worries. Me being on athletic and it will still be in this league. I think it's a good thing. I said, I think it's helped me a ton. With that being so and be able to have the longevity because I think I said like you said a lot of those guys are athletics. They rely on that and they don't really have to break down or understand the game as deeper or have to rely on the IQ of the game. And make adjustments. Once the athleticism goes, you have to be able to adjust any of the big shots or it will be smart defensively and cut people off and knowing your personnel.

You got a lot going on per usual. And the resume keeps growing. So that's a fun thing to see. Hopefully, man, that's the goal. To keep growing. When is the ESPN debut? That is a good question. We are figuring that out in terms of schedule wise because I didn't know what was going to happen when the trade happened in terms of how the team wanted me around in my rehab. Because I was doing a lot of my rehab in LA, but once the trade happened, they were like, you know, first they were trying to see what was going on, see what other free agency pieces were moving around. Once things settled, they were like, you know, we really want you. You're what we need. And we want you to run the team as much as possible. We want you in every huddle. So it's tough given the fact that I'm going to be in every huddle, so I had to do an off days or days that we don't play. To find a studio, I don't know how many great studios are here in Memphis. But we'll find some in other cities here, and then figure out a perfect date to do the debut.

"And then who is it they picked up midway through. I've been seeing rumors of Mike Conley that they're interested in trying to go after. They got Karis levert to talk about so that would be an interesting one. I just don't know what you would get from them. Yeah, I'm not too sure, but if you really think about it THT since he's not a pure point guard, he's a guy that you could put with Garland as well on the floor. And I think that's part of the things they want to take a little bit of the ball handling and playmaking pressure off of him. So you can put a THD on the floor with him. And it could work. So I don't know if they'd be interested, but that is a team that I wouldn't mind calling up if I were the Lakers. Give me Darius Garland, please. Thank you.

"Always exciting. We've got a weekend coming up. And also more exciting. We've got some quality NBA basketball going on. We've got a game 7, but then we get to talk about at least one of them. So that's exciting. We'll talk about that. I'm Trevor lane. You can find me on Twitter at Trevor lane over on Instagram at Trevor lane. NBA joined by Keith Smith at Keith Smith NBA on this Twitter machine. Keith, let's just, I hate talking about injuries, particularly serious ones. So let's just start the show with this. We'll rip the band aid off. Danny Green, that injury we saw last night, Joel embiid falls into his leg, green leg gets twisted underneath him. The second I saw it, I went, oh, that's bad. This is not good. My wife has a background in athletic training. It's not what she uses. Now in her career, but that's what her degree is in. Is an athletic training. And so I called her in and I said, she's pretty good at diagnosing injuries. And I said, what is this injury? And she said, oh, so that could be anything that could be everything in that knee. That's bad, bad, bad. We could be talking about, I mean, this could be the end of Danny Green's career given his age and everything. So how did you react when that injury happened, Keith? That was the very first thought I had was this might be a for Danny Green. He's going to be 35 next month. It's a year injury. I mean, maybe maybe maybe something comes back and it's not as severe as it looked, but when you start getting the reports almost immediately after that they worry if the significance like that tells me they know it's probably pretty bad. So yes, we're talking a year to come back, so let's because of when it happened, that's probably missing the entirety of next season. So that'd be going into year 8 and age 36 season, having not played a year, that seems pretty unlikely to me, is a fully non guaranteed contract for next year too, so that's the highly likely that'll get waived. Then move on. That may have happened anyway. Just with Philly's kind of facing roster wise. But yeah, this sucks. This is a guy who kind of really became a self made guy. For his entirety of his career because he was not someone who popped in the NBA right away. He kind of had to work to get there and was not a thing for him, and then he really worked hard and earned his role in San Antonio over years, won a title. At least a couple titles with the spurs and then one one in Toronto as well, and then one with the Lakers too. So right? Yeah. He was on the lead. Yeah. Yeah, and then so just brutal, you know, for years and years, he was kind of the epitome of the three and D guy when he thought of that on the way. Yeah, I mean, he was the guy that everybody looked at and said, we need a Danny Green type player, a guy who's just going to defend like crazy going to be smart, going to put himself in the right spots and can hit the open three when it's available..

"danny green" Discussed on The Crossover NBA Show with Chris Mannix
"Do they have, as you said enough on the perimeter in general, perimeter D and length at those spots, we're missing Danny Green for a long stretch after the trade for Hardin, so just getting him back recently and trying to kind of reconfigure because that's the thing when you have, you know, I'm not saying you can play defense just with two guys. But Danny Green together is a pretty nice combination defensively at the wings. But Danny Green's got a lot of miles on him and you can't, you know, you can't overextend him. So there's still concerns there when he's not on the court or table's not in the court like where does that leave you, right? So it's just a lot of little things, but listen, in a playoff series, first of all, we know this team can defend at a high level. When you have embiid back there, you're always going to be a pretty stout defense. And then it's just a matter of, can you win the battles down the stretch? Can you get the tight, you know, there are the baskets you really need in a tight fourth quarter. And they do have two guys and hardening and bead who are among the best scorers in the league. So I still think they're going to be there in the end..
"danny green" Discussed on Dual Threat with Ryen Russillo
"The whole filing process for you. You do your thing. They've got your taxes. Into it, TurboTax live. Visit TurboTax dot com to learn more. I'm going to talk about my good friend Russell Wilson. The trade happened a couple hours after we taped on Tuesday. And I've been able to see all the reaction and everything and I'm just going to talk about it right now. All right, the deal. Russell Wilson 33 this year, 34 in November. He's got two more years to contract in the 20s, great deal considering the top quarterbacks now are about $40 million. Denver has had ten quarterbacks since Peyton Manning. The trade itself, you get to first two seconds of 5th, they get no offense, the tight end who I really like to get you locked as well. She'll be Harris a DN is 30. Actually played all of his games this year and then coming back the other way as Russell Wilson. And a pick back to Denver. I like the trade because it's Russell Wilson. Despite, as I've mentioned numerous times, I don't think there's a bigger gap between somebody that I've enjoyed watching and disliked listening to more than Russell Wilson. It would be the only thing to be worse if skip Bayless got 28 a game for the Celtics, all right? So when I look at Russell Wilson the quarterback, this is a no brainer. It really, to me, is a no brainer. Now, we can get into some of the statistical stuff and say, well, you know, you want to dig in a little deeper what we can do it. I actually feel like we can do that almost with any quarterback, except for maybe a couple now because Wilson's statistically has had a bit of a drop off since the second half of the previous season. And then he had the finger injury this year, which is actually a big part of my open them. I get to a little bit later. So yeah, like he's got the worst QBR of his career this year. All right, whatever. He averaged about 450 rushing yards per season, had a 183 yards rushing and 14 games this season. Usually that does start to drop off a little bit, but at 33, going into a 34 year old season, the way these guys are playing, the way he takes care of his body. He's an absolute stud of an athlete, which we already understand. Him being really good for another 5 years is a very likely outcome. And it's even more important for a Denver team that's in a division with mahomes and Herbert and Caro had a bit of a resurgence himself. So I just, you know, you can spend all this time hoping to draft the right guy, hoping you get somebody, they've tried to retread thing with, hey, case Keenum was pretty good there for you. Let's try that. Oh, that didn't work. Hey, we've got a motivated Joe Flacco. That didn't work. We looked like I thought they had something maybe with Trevor Simeon. That didn't work. Remember when Trevor Simeon was almost untouchable in the trade market, they even had a Bridgewater in. They had ripons, was it nephew that was out there and then drew lock, who had a couple moments because like everybody now that plays quarterback in the NFL, you'll have like Sunday where you throw for three 23 and a pick and you're like, oh, you may have something. And then you kind of don't. Because a lot of guys are still capable of putting up big numbers. It's kind of like NBA scoring now on a bad basketball team. We were like, oh, I had 26. You're like, yeah, not good. So to solve that problem with Russell Wilson and the fact that I think market wise to first two seconds, maybe we can get caught up in the three first things that other quarterbacks have gotten. But, you know, this league trades three first for somebody that we've never even seen play just because they're a draft pick and we are always in love with, especially when it comes to athletes. We were always in love with new instead of the known. But in this case, it's the known and it solves a problem here that's almost a decade long. So I love it for Denver. But why would, again, Seattle do this. Now, she'll keep the athletic who I really like we have on the show all the time. He brought up some stuff. And like I said, you can kind of pick at numbers and find a way to argue against a lot of quarterbacks. I saw something the other day where somebody was trashing Kyler Murray and I thought, okay, fine. You want to find somebody that Kyler status you can find him. You know what I would look at if I were Arizona. Hey, did we suck for a long time? Do we have a quarterback? We took number one who has been in the MVP conversation back to back seasons despite kind of falling apart there. And yeah, he was terrible in the playoffs against the rams. Isn't that a little bit better than your first down QBR or something? You know, like I think that sometimes we can make it more complicated when the simple answer is that yeah, I think we have solved, we have a solution now to our problem at quarterback. And that's what Denver did. Now, some of the bullshit, let's get to that part of it because you can't help ourselves. The reports that this is what Russell Wilson wanted, the only one at Denver. I don't believe that. Now, he may have wanted Denver because he trusts Elway. It's an awesome city. It's a great fan base. I mean, it's incredible city. Anyone that's ever played there or lived there, they're just like, this is great. It's almost underrated still, despite how many people seem to be moving there all the time. But a year ago, we had that weird story about how Russell Wilson was in asking for a trade. It was that he wasn't asking for a trade. But if you were going to trade me, here's a bunch of cities that I would go to New Orleans, Chicago, Las Vegas was involved, and I think what it was and what I had heard is that his wife felt like she could be a bigger deal. They could be a bigger deal collectively in a bigger market than Seattle. I don't know that Denver necessarily solves that problem, so maybe it wasn't as important now. Then the story about how Washington actually potentially made a better offer, maybe he didn't want to go play for Dan Snyder. I don't think that's a really hard thing to believe, but I don't think that it was only Denver, but that's part of the Russell Wilson package. It's the marketing package of every single sentence. Everything is crafted in a perfect way.

"danny green" Discussed on The Crossover NBA Show with Chris Mannix
"I haven't hopefully the same if he's not there. What changes for you. I mean everybody looks at it. Through their own prism of of okay my role on the team. Who i play off of and who. I've got a good vibe with chemistry. With whatever if ben simmons is somewhere else on opening night which you don't have to agree but in my mind i think it's inevitable. I think it's almost a you know a given Because i just think it's going to be really tough to keep him after all this happened. All it's been discussed. It's been in the media. So what changes for danny green to not have been some as the guy orchestrating out there and push it on the break and everything breaking down defense and getting open. Threes the stadium. Because we don't know we're gonna get back home you make it a point. Guard with mega wings may change a lot. I might be limited to that point charlie. Playing with him table wings. I might be the bench. I don't know who we're going to get Soga change a lot. Also defensively become the primary defendant issue a problem but we have one less wing defender with him as me and matisse nothing other guys don't play defensible you talk about our main defenders. That was a big part of our defense odd devices. Kick it up. National amazing defensive force but ben. Was you know dp for us this year and my you know everybody on our team. Of course we need deservingly so should have been. Despite the euro bear. He had agreed. We are always every last three years but we been able to guard one through fives at the tone. Course when he's gone so that changes a lot for not just offense over defense lose well for me and on. We'll be back. You mentioned just how difficult it was for. Ben just the backlash the criticism. How loud that was fans media. Everyone i mean people are still talking about passing that dunk in game seven You're respected vet. You're you're one of the old heads now for lack of a better term. You've got three rings. You played for a lot of great teams and some great coaches. I assume you have more. We think about people often associates stars with leaders. There are a lot of stars who are kind of kind of quiet dudes. They're like leadership doesn't come naturally to them. Necessarily another guys like you who might be what we would call role players respectfully of course but who because of your understanding of the game and your experience your accomplishments with teams. You've been with you have a little bit more that gravitas. So have you felt that over the last few years as you've gained you know that kind of standing and how does that put you in a position to to be advising simmons whether it's talking off though the proverbial edge about what the backlash or just about his shot not shooting all that i mean not telling us what you've told him. What's what's been your approach. Their biggest role on a seat. I was unquote reform of the gordon. bidders being always locker. We lost georgia. Lost dwight howard. I'm the only thirty team right now. Not of many other better Talking through its Wellbeing veteran teacher. Young guys A year shorewood is still learning So yeah that that's going to be a big factor. In how are things in how it's up to these guys especially our superstars and said a young as well on that. That role is. That's what the rule ahead last year to china. Do that get better at it. Hopefully they make it easy if they catch on faster. But that's a big reason of why they wanted to be back. There they need to be especially during the game wasn't just on court stuff but the leadership role in the i guess the maturity that runs the table for the team as low as needed during a playoff series. Is there one thing that one of the old heads told you early. On whether in cleveland or san antonio that stuck with you most that you find is the thing that you're repeating. The most now is a lot of things. So many things. I've learned from a lotta guys obscene elliott of somebody. That's there but my first year. Cleveland was a lot of vets with branche. Of course anthony armor who was amazing. You know role model for ultimate professional and not a lot of those guys to join us and san antonio courts. Timmy told him motto. The best people ever you look after follow. Follow suit you know. These guys ultra ultimate professionals so learning from them. You see how they operate nothing that you don't have to say much but just watching how they moved around outside of the court on the court at through practice in the weight room hasn't carry themselves after a tough loss after tough or very win or easy when just how they didn't get too caught up in that moment at the time season yoda's looking at the bigger picture and prepared for that moment under That big moment came now. How they operate how they lead at a by actions and words globally. Were so those small things i've learned from everybody. You know list goes on of unlucky. Played a lot of teams with a lotta great guys. And i learned from a lot of my old heads of how to be professional. Have you ready for that moment. Tv boys charity and also keeping Was especially those younger guys and making sure that dan enjoyment nuggets who lesson but having fun with it has the as we will be dreamed of little kids These moments in the stages of muslims have fun. I kind of forgotten that your timing. Cleveland overlapped with the that part of shacks career. You could not have possibly escaped cleveland without one. Great shock encounter or shack story. So what do you got to sex now of our great but you know i was the only relief donuts in mississippi not carry a lot. Shaq's shoes carrying is whoever's guitar heroes that there was a bunch of slow had me fraternity pledge in pretty much had agreed certain. It had learned a step of you know you did. Certain punishments of was considered rookie. Hazing or anything like that but the rookie. I took it agreed. You're at you funny things about him. That i won't share shared himself. You know it wasn't as easy as easy meat. His rookie. bud learned a lot from us. A good rookie. Hazing still happened. Is that kind of faded out of fashion with this younger generation. Crazy because affiliates. I didn't realize the year. I'm like get getting donors the whole year because guys like a bandage while they never really had to get off. Didn't have any goi- so rookie. Starting like the last week of the season in into the playoffs. They didn't know that Didn't really make them a force them to do any type of duty so it was non existent at this point so like no like goofy backpacks. No like walking around in strange closed. Well everybody's wearing odd pod stuff off the rack these days anyway up more force them but we will have our guys you know. They had an easy to carry stuff. Here that was a coded. It's based out things. Focus on getting back to normal. Nobody really thought about donuts. A rookie hazing for that. Even nothing you know. Here's a hit gone down tremendously generation z. Man that can't stand the rookie hazing. It's not it's not for them to software so you mentioned the important here though like you join philly you changed teams in the middle of a panda changed jobs in the middle of a pandemic to sort of sports illustrated back in december. So it's strange. Like i haven't been to our offices yet i haven't met our editors yet still And you and you probably didn't get to explore philly quite as much either. So are you looking for a more open version of your too in philly where you can actually like explore a little bit like. What are you looking forward to very much. That's that's the biggest thing that i'm going to go to being being a community learning.

Not just the end of the year but having our fans of the whole year but said learning more philippeville explorer. I've been league for time now.

"danny green" Discussed on Mason & Ireland
"So this is instant kris. Haines of yahoo is reporting that the lakers have mutual interest in danny green and dwight howard essentially trying to bring the band back together from twenty danny green and dwight howard. Danny green solves one issue. Obviously he's a great three d guy. Great three point shooter. We'll help you stretch the floor. Dwight howard the rim-protector that we could've used last year during the course of the season. What do you think of the idea. And this is not done. It's not it's not announced. it's nothing like that. Of danny green and dwight howard returning and the lakers trying to put the band back together. A liked that idea. I don't think it's a bad path especially if it's available if you're not going all over over the river through the woods trying to get guys back just because you were familiar with them but they're available and they're willing why not. I do think. Dwight howard thing comes with one. Low of caveat though dwight was great when he came back. it was fantastic. Again back to the lakers. He had an attitude adjustment. He was a better basketball player. But you know what else to wayne howard had behind him he had you feel mcgee and the two of them together made that dang work as much as one singular player. Did you had more fouls to distribute. You could sort of put you could use them as the same big man but doing different things with two different sets of fouls. I liked white. I do think he'd be good. But i think that people are going to overlook how important javagal was in those situations backup in terms of how he played the five position. What he did you know from a room protecting standpoint. Throw that out. There is an idea. So we know we've got lebron. Adm westbrook and now rob pelinka's putting pieces around them. The idea of danny green and dwight howard returning. I ax absolutely love. I love both those guys when they were playing here. I understand what you're saying about chabal mcgee. Of course now they still have marcus all under contract so he is not the rim protector that you need but dwight howard contrary to what people do had basically the exact same year for the sixers that he had for the lakers in two thousand twenty he brings enthusiasm. He clearly wants to win. He was beloved by laker fans. I think he makes a lot of sense in terms of protecting the rim and giving that defense down low which they really didn't have during the course of last year so i love this idea by the way shams toronto.

I'm doing all right, really hoping to do one of these post game shows with a win where we can talk about how great things were without LeBron and AD that'll have to wait for another night. I think God. Yeah. Yeah, unfortunately that is going to be another night. And you know, well this game was going on. I was thinking this is a winnable game. Like I had pegged this one as a loss on the Lakers wreck when I saw the 76 but then when I saw the line up since the Seventy Sixers had out there I thought there's no reason why the Lakers shouldn't be competing with this team and ultimately it came down to one really really really bad quarter. I've killed the lady. That was the third when the Seventy Sixers were just raining threes. The Lakers were just raining turnovers and that pretty much ended the game. Otherwise they were right there, but we've talked about a bunch this team would know LeBron James Davis. There is zero margin for error. You can't have a quarter like they did in the third and expect to win the game and that's that's certainly what happened here tonight. Yeah, when you don't have LeBron and maybe it's not even a quarter. You can't have a bad 4-minute stretch and survive it. that was I mean one of the worst quarters of the Season off of the worst quarters in a couple Seasons, if we're being honest that was really really bad no stats to confirm this but we both thought that they had more turnovers than shots made. So that's not great.

Stay in here. He's okay more more importantly like cows like me out of here man. This is a sinking ship. I think the results would have been different. Perhaps and i think he was like. I'm okay with being here. You know his bird rights don't kick in till the you can't extend him till the summer so if you trade for you're interested in his bird rights much harder now to sign kyle hours of free agent because you no longer has his bird rights so for people that most people on. I don't need to explain this on your podcast right. Everyone knows what that means yes. I know it's helpful though. Yeah okay so what it means. Is that If you had if you trade him at the deadline and you wanted to extend him you had his bird rights. You could go over the cap you have to worry about it now. If you sign him you have been able to fit him. And it's it's more difficult for teens. So i think in the end they probably just like. How much of this can we ask our fans to understand. He's so good with the younger guys. And you know let's face it siachen nick nurse. They got a little thing going on right. Now there's a little back and forth.

Richardson shooting for three ended out. They didn't have a real reliable second often times during the series alec. Burks was your secondary options on offense recipe. Brad stevens and the celtics and bead romeo leg for the rookie thinking about double vacates birds. Who can't make them pay. So there is a lot of mistakes that were made roster building and there were missing. Simmons isn't it was a tough series for sure. Can you remind us what the narrative was after that first round exits surrounding joel embiid and his performance. Yeah it was fascinating because on one hand when they came back into the bubble they had spent pretty much those months in between working with you all to get better at handling dull teams and it came out in the bubble in orlando during the seeding games and some of that had started to show and he looked like he was handling double teams better and he came out against the celtics. And i think that he converted back a little bit in terms of struggling with the double team and bead backing down ties gordon hayward on the help and they come up with the steel but he was dominant as an individual score. That was locked off and be. Did it again. Safe focused joel. Fb five of seven. Give him thirteen of his team's thirty one. We'll lifesaver on that. So i think a lot of people looked at you made steps. He did most of what he could do individually. He just didn't have enough help around him. Well that disappointing end to a long season led to a number of changes within the sixers organization. Can you take us through. Some of the moves that philly made in the off season and how they related to unlocking the better performances from joel. Embiid is off the front office. Obviously brought daryl morey To work above. Elton brand and then they brought in doc rivers replace brett brown and then you had some pretty key addition to traded al horford for essentially danny green. And then josh. Richardson for steph curry. And i think those two editions have been pretty big with joel. Because i think if you look either trade you'd say the sixers got the lesser talent but the fit and just having to players in curry and green. Who the other team can't leave has been huge for. Joel shoe autom- double wall and pass. And you miss accomplish you. Miss a lot of shots You just straightening and then you start thinking of all you gotta do everything by yourself. 'cause everybody's not made the shots. Richardson horford they were not only inconsistent shooting. If they are unwilling shooters and they'd hesitate any office. Which is kinda come grinding down to a halt not only is curry making his shots and all these green making his permanent shots. But the ball is moving around the perimeter. Much quicker than it was. So there's more consequential doubling joel embiid than there ever has been monarch got a lot of assists but Ogle gets one us open. Invite double or triple team has a lot of hockey else's shake milton hinton to downtown ten points and ten minutes off the bench make no mistake that play which about drawing the double and then the ball moving east gotta be willing to be content. That the ball's the swing opposite and he's gonna creative for shots teams are now left with a real choice whereas before i think the whole strategy just send you all need help and disguise it a little bit senate in different locations but if you send it frequently enough you're going to confuse joel embiid or the sixers aren't going to have the talent or the players to make him pay. I think that's changed now.

A Bold Eastern Conference Prediction for 2021
"Right. Okay, let's go to the East and I Toronto have they fallen out of your thing. Now. This is not a check it out. It's all depend on you mad though. They hate monkeys. I'm going to give it to Brooklyn. Number one, right number two. I think Milwaukee close to a similar winning percentage. We saw last year's. The number to write you know, but 3 I'm going to go Miami Miami was fifth last year people forget. So that's a big Improvement to go from victim. I just I'm I don't know. How long would you know about that even Bradley. I think that's a good addition bamas help games healthy. I think he maybe he makes another stride Tyler hero, I think makes another stride Off the Bench Duncan Robinson. I like those guys. Okay, I like those guys are gonna put me on and then you got Jimmy Butler. Who's there? Jimmy Butler still Jimmy, but then you lose Jae Crowder you lose trying to but I like I like Bradley with those shooters that I just mentioned or those scores because he's going to get so many open shots your next until I hear all your next to Duncan Robinson. You can't leave them open. Anyway behind that heart all the money in the world and you got Defenders on the other end. That'll just say like, okay, so all right. That's three four. I'm going Philly Celtics fan. I can't put Boston over Philly. I can't I see. Okay. You got your birth. No, Seth Curry, Danny Green who will defend his ass off on the other end. And then you got it back up for Joel and B-Max Dwight Howard show that he can be serviceable a second Main Service back, but not until you tell me what Simmons is going to do and how he's going to play. I can't I can't buy into that. You're the one who took back is going to make him shoot on that Rhonda Rhonda back is going to make him shoot and we just watch the exhibition game with him. And when he did he's going to marry me pull-up three-pointers. I think one he wasn't even here's the thing about it wasn't even involved in the office because social media will explode the moment. I mean for about 319 about my thing again with filling if I'm feeling I make that move but I think that's what I think that's what hard would be best suited and they you let Simmons Jersey And I think Joel embiid and hardened together. That's a better tandem angry much better time. I don't think I don't think there's another team in the Eastern Conference. That would benefit more than Philly. I just think again to my point the shooters thing which would be more sugar than he had in Houston. If you really think about it, Danny Green Seth Curry. Okay, Ronda Shooters, you got your well and be Turkish bath every once you can bang down low we can defend on the other end. I mean, they're good team here the window what that if if they can find that one piece and that to me that's going to be the key off. They do art and you're saying you say those four right now. What were y'all before? I just Boston here we go. Here we go. Boss is five six. And they're going to be right there to his Toronto Oakland agree. That far behind you sleep on Toronto 7. I'm going to put Indiana and all the depot is the biggest question Market, you know, he's he can talk to you far but I haven't seen them be the same old people since the injury when that dude was a bad man dropping 35, like it was nobody's business. That was all the people I was like man look out. He didn't gave something when we get Kyrie 38 onetime 38 people. Can I read but yeah, so that's a big question mark, but I'll put them in seven eight the last spot. I'm going to put I'm a while maybe now I'm glad they ready Atlanta is going to be maybe praying that could be really really
Game 5 wraps up of the 2020 Finals
"Moments after exciting. One of the best, finals games in recent memory. Game Five Heat Eke Ekit out to live another day and joining Zach tonight now Chris. Bosh. It wasn't quite. Five to Allen for three. It was quite Bosch Talon. But this is up there with one of the biggest heat wins in history I mean. For sure. It's an incredible game. What did you think of it? Man You know I, it is starting to be one of those series that's just kind of grinding to a halt. You thought that was going to happen is not happening. Everything, every player that she thought was going give this particular stat line is not it's not really transpiring right now but I mean, you have to give all credit to the heat and I kept telling people this in all these interviews you know how can get? The Lakers. Over they've got the uniforms on and I just like, okay he don't WanNa be here but let me tell you something. These guys if there's anybody. Who would embrace a difficult situation? It is Erik Spoelstra and Butler seems to really. Thrive off of that and anticipate that. affected. So it's Kinda like a marker will really hard is. Like they say, Oh hey yeah, we're here now. We're supposed to be competing for championship. This is how it's supposed to be. You know is this all about survival now there they've lived to play another day and that's what you gotta do. I think it's time to just acknowledged. Once and for all that, the heat had become a great team you know there was always this question of. Did they benefit from the hiatus hiatus in everything the bubble shake the bucks more than other teams. Did they benefit from hayward getting injured a really good. You. Know this Lakers seem his lost one game in every playoff series. Until now, they have not lost to to a heat team that is missing its leading postseason score until this series Goran dragic that they could started to acknowledge Jimmy Butler. The top ten player. Yeah that'd be we're. GonNa. Have to rearrange the rankings because this dude just put up thirty five, twelve eleven in forty seven minutes forty seven minutes and five and a half whatever it is it's the game you play dull game. Survived forty thirteen seven on fifteen of twenty-one masterpiece from the Brian. James we can talk about the end of the game if you want. Everyone can focus on the end of the game, but the heat put themselves in position to win at the end of the game. Duncan. Robinson was unbelievable. They're shotmaking was outstanding and this team just keeps in with Bam out bio clearly, not one hundred percent missing layups, missing dunks, he can play better he. To acknowledge the heat now are are for real and just like you were saying, they're short handed to. So you know we need to keep that in mind You can only imagine how the series would be a little different Gora was out there and not that he's just going to be that dominating presence, but he gives them another layer. To their attack and you know they have that team cohesion down pack and I mean, I don't really know where the lapses with the Lakers are happening with dunkin' Robinson. He's making them pay every time. I. Mean He's moving himself up into Lee Company every game because you don't expect them the thing you know you don't think he's going to continue to go on the street. He's he's gone on and you'll eventually figure that a veteran is GonNa get into them and just chase him to the bathroom. But but it hasn't happened yet and I mean they're making them pay every single time and. Boy I. Tell You. We'll. We'll see what happens game six. Years especially with a hobbled a little bit man. That's one of the big cities we should probably get to. Well, let's let's talk about the end of the game real quick. Okay. So a Frank Vogel Lakers coach has come out after this game and said that there were bad calls at the end. Jimmy Butler getting to the line I'm going to have to go ahead and disagree he's probably GonNa give find. Lakers lead the Lakers up one. He, ball they run a beautiful fast play for Jimmy Butler gets A. He screwed good play Lebron not. because. Eighty one moving so whilst I foot Lebron on. Screen Lebron and she goes up but Jeff Van Gundy called on the broadcast he he floats see I mean. It in verticality your whole. Career. Frank Vogel helped invent it with Roy but. He floats. He fails right? That's a foul. Yes. Afoul he jumped into them. You know good call by the resident and you have to give you know usually referees are getting tough time I. Think they called a Great Game Day You can always look on both sides and say, well, if an if but if they're even in the game is tied and the players they're the ones who are dictating what happens out there. Hopefully, the game isn't called. You know at the end by you know free throws or anything like that but all. Evenly called Game I. Feel. Throws. Yeah, each team had their opportunities and. Jimmy Man Jimmy Butler man he's he's continuing to do it. Man I gotta I gotta you gotTa give him props he's going to make give him props I. Mean he put them on their own is back in those last minutes. Man I mean, the one leg get he's hidden one legged fadeaway. You know he's hitting the free throws down the stretch to dribble I mean he's He's shoot free throws when you're that exhausted and not just. Did you her second he was going to miss you like just. To, to, of course, you were not you think he's GonNa Miss One because as a player I know how I would feel I'm GonNa Miss One. On. THAT TIRED Like him going over when he was leaned over panting after getting fouled, you know they burned a time out after that but. Just him just still being able to muster up whatever could and having a concentration suppose still had Chris Bosh on his roster. He would have run that play where you went to the back side. And the coroner. You. Come on you. Play for last second shot several times. So okay. So it makes a two free throws come down. They call time out again, Van Gundy and Mark Jackson. Call on this game all over this. Danny Green is in the game with a know Dunkin Robinson's on Danny Green. They know that they're going to run the screen to try to force Dunkin Robinson they know there's going to be a double with Lebron that's exactly what happens Lebron Drives Zach he drives into a crowd. There's three is three and a half guys there. He makes the basketball play Chris Bosh, which he is made for fifteen years since he's been starting to the playoffs, throws it to the Open Guy Danny. Green is a thirty eight percent three point shooter from that spot according to second spectrum is wide open. So I'll I'll throw them another couple of percentage points. And he missed it. Well I know Danny wants that one back. you know he made the right play it was a crowd I. I think he had the mentality to say, you're not going to beat us. We're sending everything in the kitchen saying and we're just going to close the shooters. They got the play that they were looking for. It was a tremendous play Danny Green slipped out. You kinda tell that the heat we're anticipating that play. Brahms. So able to make a very decent pass out the Danny grains got he got his hands on he stepped right into it. Any other time nine times out of ten he'll make that shot. You know he missed it what the interesting thing was on the rebound market Moore's he had plenty of time and he kind of made a quick decision Brian, opened on the right wing, which is always easy to say a new usually. Yeah. You throw it to ad but he had another big on you know and that was just man I was a tough light. It was very tough sequence. Watching film you. In it again now. You. Know Marquee Foucault Danny Green like he just handed the ball to hand off again Danny was right there funny though when he's when you through the LOB. Through. It I looked under the Rim I saw a d. and I thought again the balls just hand in mid Air I thought okay. I hate that decision because ad Mike, I'm putting the referees in play a little bit their down one, and then of course, the pass was that not an accurate he choked right let's just say. I'm not saying I would say that to mark keeps face in this moment. Do not say that Bryant don't say that. He. What do you WanNa say it's choked. Well he also as you pointed out before we started, you know they were setting the screen it they set for Jimmy on the on the go ahead. Free throws a flat screen by crowder and the flat screen is designed. You know Chris knows when your face in half court, it's designed to make defense. Gessler. Like which way to go, but it is an which wishing the pick he went he went from an angle to switching to the flat. kind of this weird in between space and if you don't, if if you're not demonstrative about your coverage, you'll get exploited
Miami Heat's Goran Dragic, Bam Adebayo exit with injuries in loss to Los Angeles Lakers
"Is back in the house. Your quick thoughts on the NBA Finals last night game one laker domination. Liquor shoot the ball like that. They're the best team in MBA by far by far. There's nobody cloaks they made eleven threes in the first half, and at times you felt Miami's intensity defensively laps. Now they battled with injuries to Bam and Goren drugs I understand that. But when a Lakers may shots kentavious pope was shooting lights out Danny, green shot the ball. Well, AD was making threes and one side happens the game is over because then it opens up the paint for ad and Lebron James to attack and that's how both those guys end up having huge night's loss and that's the thing about it especially out in La when they put this team together one of the biggest. Things kept saying everybody and you notice Jay will cover the NBA on NBA down is that where are the shooter's Lebron James Ad but where the shooters there was no real of confidence in the Greens in the peas in those guys to take to be a consistent three point shooting team because when you look historically on Lebron James Teens, he's always had pure shooters around him and everybody was questioning what would that look like but they it to be on the playoffs I mean, what can you say they are right in front of you last night and I can say this if there's no Gordon dragoj on the floor if there is no Bam out of by on the floor. It's over. This thing is over, it's easily over. You could actually make a debate that it would be over even if they were on the floor well, there's no debating. Just. Say Gordon Rockets at. Times during Boston Celtics series he was their best player on the floor. Absolutely. We're Bam, right. So now you take those two guys out of the question only guy that can stop the Lakers to some degree from upfront right from getting offense rebound and things of that sort but he's not in the game you have Kelly Olympic Meyers Leonard hasn't played in a long time. There's really no chance and by the way you have Jimmy Butler who rolled his ankle and his knee twice last night. Yeah, and continue to try to play. In in typically when when when teams start losing players in sports, they just for whatever reason, it just goes
Anthony Davis Has Room to Grow
"GonNa Focus on the Lakers, which as an editor is near and dear to my heart because sharks picked the biggest red meat team on on on the table here. But they've been really impressive with us are there to one and Anthony Davis looks like probably the best player in the bubble thus far chunks. Why don't you leaders us through some of the things that have been happening with Lakers why think for the record this is called the impossibly good-looking persons corner just clarify. For. Their how dare sir? Okay so we're looking at the Lakers thing to me that's jumped out in the first three games is how they're playing when Anthony Davis playing without Lebron on. So that was been their biggest problem. All season is those non Lebron ad minutes because he idea was. Okay. If you have a D- then Lebron can rest he can get. His breaking it as time off, and they'll still be fine. But before the restart when eighty was out of the Ron, he was minus three and five, hundred, six, hundred minutes as those are important minutes Lakers have to win in the restart I mean obviously is a very small sample size but who cares where we're doing podcasts in the restart their plus night. Eighties playing without Lebron. That's just a massive flip on their whole situation and to me watching those minutes was set out to me I think number one. Not Having region Rondo. I think that really kind of low key killed their team because when rondos playing he has to have the ball right like Rondo can't play off the ball Swiss hole in the ball he's not really a threat to score someone's really guarding him and then on defense that giving you much either so like Alex the numbers when ad and Rondo without Lebron it was minus five and without Rondo they're playing Caruso and waiters with a d the floor is spread and the thing. Anthony. Davis. You don't need a traditional point guard Anthony, Davis give eighty the ball in the mid postals kill people right? He gets the ball then it kicks shooter instead of the Rondo. So it's like ADP without Rondo back great and the other thing too is eighty at the five. So they're going eighty Kuzma than like Greener Casey Caruso waiters whatever. Eighty s numbers at the five the year are insane. They're absolutely ridiculous. So cab. Looking at that with no Devellano Dwight Eighty has a usage of twenty eight shooting of Sixty six point six. Now base that means in English as eighties in the ball, like he's hardener Jaanus and he's been the most efficient player in the league. So if looking at those two numbers, there's only been one player in NBA history that had to be that efficient at that. High usage not staff like five years ago. So basically, when eighties at the five, he does a established about shooting threes he's basically scoring at will every single time I think long story short eighty more room to grow I. Think we're seeing that right now like leading a d. plan space given him the ball he's got levels still the go to get into them right now. Yeah I. So the biggest thing off of that, which was great I just wonder if their margin for error is too thin right now obviously the Lakers have been incredible. So let's get that caveat out of the way I think probably favorite if not among the favorites for the title. People like to remind us on the group Chat specifically Chris Because I don't think sharks was. One I remember that yeah. Where we pretty much we troll the Lakers after their first loss of the season and. Venture like the succeed but clearly, they've they've far exceeded those expectations. Great. Please don't ask me. But I do wonder as bad as Rondo has been at times. As much as Bradley is the fifth most important guy on that starting lineup at times I do wonder if the margin for error is a little bit more thin and you are relying on the cruise of the world on the Casey Visa, the world more than you would like to my wrong rob now I mean I'm I'm pretty compelled by this whole situation that sharks laid out like the idea of shifting some of those pieces around and unlocking ad in a different way like makes logical sense to me given his skill set this is. The Guy, who can you know Kevin O'Connor talked in in the restart this week about how? Bam. Out of Bio Converts Defenses Ad in the mid post has a similar effect where if you clear out, you give him space and a straight line drive past almost any big in the league like that's such a powerful thing that there should be a way to orient pieces around that. Make Sense I. Think I get skeptical is in that margin for error and it's in, you know if you look at kind of the core of these lineups. AD and CAL Kuzma, and Alice Caruso or kind of the three man anchor of it and in around that, there's a revolving door of guards. You got some Danny Green minutes you get some dion waiters minutes he gets JR Smith gets in Casey ep you got whoever they cobbled together in that minute in the rotation at those guys scare the hell out of me a little bit and I think you know when you flashback to eighty as a Pelican and where he was some of where they fell apart without drew. Holiday on the floor without kind of more traditional point guards on the floor which just not having competent entry passers not having guys who could get a d. the ball in positions to score, which is it seems like such an easy thing. But the thing I don't trust dion waiters to do but it is a thing. Maybe I do trust Danny Green to do it. You know like some of these more professional veteran level guys like that distinction I think is an important one and probably the difference between bubble seating. Games bubble playoff games, right where you're getting Jr's and the demons at least lower in the pecking order if not out of the rotation on a regular basis entirely, and then you're looking at these minutes where it's you know, Danny Green Casey P. and those guys and cannot work I. Think I. Think there's a chance that it does but I do get a little bit suspect just in the sense that once playoff defenses are really keying in on what this lineup look like and how it works what does that? Mean deep because you know Jaanus has had that scrutiny in terms of a big who handles the ball who's creating for space lineups like we know what that looks like in defense is know what that looks like defensive kind of just been dealing with these Lakers lineups without Lebron floor all year haven't had a lot of trouble with them, but they haven't hammered them either in terms of the the mechanics of how they work. If this starts working, then you invite that level of
