We'll get our final predictions here in just a moment but i want to go back to something you touched on with the brooks koepka and bryson into shambo thing. This all started in. It was hilarious. 'cause i i did watch the pga championship. Where a fifty year old man phil mickelson one and arguably One of the best golfers not arguably one of the best golfers of all time gets it. Donnie he defeats brooks kept cup for that major win Afterwards they're interviewing brooks koepka and bryson to. Oh who these two have had a rivalry going for quite some time. They don't like each other. It's not for show bricks. Kept guy hates bryson cambo. He was one of the players that shambo was taking too long to hit his shots and brooks koepka lost his mind on it. Getting the point where coke said you like. Meet me in the parking lot. Like he got to that point. That boiled over again as kept doing an interview to shambo walks by got metal cleats on you can hear metal spikes which the golfers hate people who wear metal spikes anyways tears up the green. A little bit walks by mutter. Something as he walks by. Kapka kept visually disgusted with what just happened then. The next day they announced the match. Which i'm a huge fan of the match. It was. It was a lot of fun to watch the last couple of but this year. It's going to be physical sin and tom brady. going up against aaron rodgers and bryce into shambo and tom brady has all of a sudden. Become a meme master hilaria. It is so good because he took a screenshot of eating bill. Belichick in every way possible now like that is over. Yeah until mac. Jones wearing number fifty leads the patriots to the super bowl. Now but but he starts tweeting it out there and burks kepco fires at bryce into shambles as a sorry at aaron rodgers for having to spend the day. The all really. It's really do. I feel like it started. And then it just kinda went all in on it. I think that brady just dumped some fuel on the fire because we would because what was said by kepco after the shampoo walked by they cut it in. The video has now been pulled from all social media because it wasn't supposed to be leaked kepco looked at and said this isn't going right and he just said i can't sorry. Can we start over i. I can't. I can't think effing bs that just happened And i mean he just you could see. It's true disdain for them. It's like you're all sitting around the water cooler and and jerry. Y'all hey walks up and you're like oh we're going to deal with jerry that's kind of what it was like. I think it's absolutely real. I think tom brady is quickly. Becoming one of my favorite athletes of all time makes golf interest eight does it was a great day so to share fires back at kept says. Glad to see that. I'm living rent free in your head and earlier in that week somebody One of the fans and the golf course after shambo hits it goes there we go z right at the shambo said whoever said that needs to get out here and so that's all avenue man absolutely is. It's funny it is fun but that was happening in the sport. So that was. I love golf. Gets like that because you know. We're not all going to tune into every pga tournament. i not turn into one. We put it as arguments about about the athletes thing by the way no i said track is more of an athletic sport than gulf. You had a fifty year old just went name a fifty year old hundred sports conversation. Let's get the official picks as we have year old to fifty year old. That's one hundred ninety minutes left. So let's let's talk about the denver nuggets in portland trailblazers. They go into portland game. Three this is to take the series lead. Denver is a four point. underdogs going into this I talk to me. How you see this game going. Give your picks through the nuggets covered. I did but yeah. I think the nuggets win this one tonight that void. What do you think yokich goes off some in depth and joker does thirty six plus or something around those those lines i think you gotta you gotta contain damian lillard. Your key is still just the the defense sunday. Yeah pretty much. I mean that's when they get going that's when things get rolling for them. The guy can shoot from half court and you just have to not let him shoot wide open shots and you have to. But they're going to try to get inside so that's going to be on nicola yokich to make sure and then guys coming down playing down it's going to be where you know austin rivers and faku certainly at a a weak spot there because they're not going to be able to to shift down and play any big guys. That's where it's nice. If you could get wilburton roy's the lineup match. Ups are going to be interesting to watch. Brady likes nuggets to win tonight. Elsewhere in the association tonight sons lakers that once tied at one apiece los angeles seven point favorites in that one Phoenix and los angeles. What he's nobody believes in phoenix. And i and i don't either. They win game one. But i i just i mean i've been waiting all year for both phoenix and utah to. Utah's not going to fall their plan. Memphis planning your job mirant. That series is going to be five phoenix. I don't i. I'm the same way man. I don't believe in birdie whole host of the whole show foam on twitter. Throw twitter handle our polls show at whole show.

"Good. Thursday morning northern colorado. Welcome in to the equation specialist studios. We're not here for a long time. We're here for a good time we've got rockies pregame coverage starting at nine thirty. Yeah they're branching and playing baseball now. The question is does that give reporters of the rockies and stuff like that. Are they going to be able to have a mosa while they watch the game. I think that's that's the honest question that we're looking for. I'm this is no co now presented by the j nine agencies We got a lot to get to in thirty minutes But we've brought in ahead of. It's a big sports day for the denver nuggets as they have game three. They split the series. Excuse me split. The first two games in denver headed to portland tonight game. Three and four that we bring in birdie whole host of the whole show to give us his thoughts. We're talking a lot of denver nuggets This morning brady those first. Two games It was kind of a tate's right The first game you know damian. Lillard is just incredible. That was the same in both games Was the difference maker in game. Two was at yokich being able to pass. Was it just more aggressiveness. From the nuggets. What was the difference in game two that they were able to at least split the home series. Yeah it had to be. It had to be shack harrison at the beginning in the first half of that game. It'll just casual nuggets. Fans probably don't even know no three year player you know he's kind of journeyman he's still pretty young. Heck of a defensive player fresh malone wanted to get him in at some point and put him in dame was taken over so they push back in a really old school style of defense to. It's one on one. I'm not switching on any screens. I'm going to go over the top of every single time. I'm gonna play off the ball. I'm not i'm not going to. I'm not going to play in the middle. I'm gonna play on the guy and watching him so for a minute and a half shack harrison does that then. The lightbulb goes on and goes all right then. Aaron gordon steps up malone halftime. It says i i want. I got day which is insane because really gordon is a true power forward. True power forward a weird thing to say. Because i mean he can shoot he can. He can guard on the perimeter. I mean he you know he can guard guards. He's against. I should say he's a lot taller. And maybe a little slower than they. Put him on steph curry right. But dame dame's guy that i trust. I trust gordon. It's going to be interesting the trash. This is a fun series. They hate each other. The trash talk is already going on. Aaron gordon says i'm gonna take him again and dame says see so you know he's going at you But you know what. The nuggets of damian lillard score fifty gets fouled out with six minutes. Left in the game and cj mccollum can't do anything you pretty happy. That was the difference though yet. Joker had a few more opportunities to get assists. Still not as much. They're still there guarding him. One on one right. So they're not bringing doubles in. That's where a lot of jokers passes come from assists. Come from is when they bring a double down they try to bracket they as soon as he puts the ball on the floor. They suck in a guard to try to tap the ball away. There's none of that going on where they don't care if joker scores fifty so has to be two other guys have to be up there. It's very interesting. I'd like to see if that was still the same philosophy if jamal murray was playing. Because you know you've got another guy. They can score. They they wouldn't be able to do. I don't think so right but they're able to do it right now. And and with that being said it this kind of this series kind of shaping up like it could be a long one right could go six seven games But doesn't feel like yokich is due for just one of those monster nights. Sometimes and i know thirty eight thirty eight and five rats. How good he is now. We're like thirty eight isn't considered a monster night right but i mean i'm talking fifty s right. Yeah i mean. He's growing his brand even more in these playoffs. he's at dickey's talented guy What he didn't do the last six years of his career though is getting to take over mode and now look at him. He knows when he has to score. There's no more of this. Oh joker does what he thinks is necessary. Maybe he doesn't want to shoot you shoots. There's none of that anymore. That's joker of the past. This is the most dangerous. I think the most dangerous player in the nba. So now they switch over an head to portland. What are you feeling that first game. Normally you know portland. I don't know what the fan capacity know what it is. They're not used to nuggets of at least been baby. Step in getting fans barrow in portland. Hadn't been in the regular season so we'll see you know i saw. There's some other. I think boston's going to be going full capacity or soon as well so you're starting to see this really started to together. Don't portland's at But that that intensity even for portland's gotta be up defending their home court. I mean it's got gotta be close that because it's no longer bubble you know. They're not already things changed different atmosphere. Do you still like the nuggets. Chances tonight tonight i do their four point. Two odds saw I mean i. I picked nuggets to win this thing and five and until that's not the case i'm sticking with it. I know it seems like it's going to be serious but denver. I don't think even had their best game on monday. And they end up winning in a landslide. I mean it was an e easy when it was all said and done. So i i think denver winston i in fact. I predicted game to game three going to go to denver. I really yeah. I so if that happens i think closed out by the time they get back. I don't think it goes longer than five if they get both these. Yeah i if yeah if you get both of these games. Yeah it's done at home to denver and be done right. Oh you said game today to. Yeah i thought you meant three and four. Yeah no i think again it's damien lord's gonna go off. The question is at the end of the half. Can you stop the bleeding. And that's what's going to happen game. Basketball game runs. The nuggets are susceptible to that they give up big runs and they don't recover. They recovered dame's going off in the second. You were texting me back roy. They were up by seventeen. And i said i'm worrying. You require you. Worry because damian lillard erased a seventeen point deficit in like a minute and it was down like eight right so that can happen so quickly and if the nuggets don't have enough scorers that when you absolutely have to get a basket it's joker porter okay. We'll porter they are game planning around him now. So it's not the same puerta. You saw the regular season not to say he's bad. He's just there guarding better. So that's what kind of scares me when when you know if dame can get going so yeah you have to find. You have to throw fresh bodies at him. If that's shack harrison for a little bit and then aaron gordon goes up the scary part about aaron gordon playing dame at the top of the key is you lose a body down the paint right. So that's where they're going to be looking for kanter noor coz guys to take over down there. Yeah in. that's that's actually going to be a really interesting point and to further the. Mvp talk if they start doing that and yokich can hold his own down there. I mean the all there shouldn't be any doubt his last. I was like thirty nine of the voters. It's all thirty nine okay. I don't have. I think it's one hundred ten right but it's it's done. He's going to win. This being i mean but you know there's been knocks on him about. Oh we can't play defense but if they start going away which you know they very Well may try that for a bit but then on the other side. I think you're okay with that. Because it takes damian lillard out of the equation. If that ball's going down in the low post. I'd rather have inas kanter her or eleven points. They have them. Have the ball in their hands than damian lillard. Who can who can literally shoot it from anywhere. Yeah that's going to be the main thing i mean y- would you really don't wanna see mccullum lillard freakout game so right now. Yeah and that was. That's what they had done in that. The last playoff series that. We saw these.

"Of those teams is eliminate adam. Silver would never. Yeah die. I there is something to be said for that. Ah i'm a little bit scared. But if denver was against dallas and you have nicole yokich versus luka doncic. Both unstoppable offense players. I still think the denver matches better with luca than dallas matches up with nicola. And that's because you have aaron gordon you have. Pj dosier you have michael porter and you have will barton and you can be a little bit more switchable with those guys on the wing then you would have been in the past when denver last played them. They didn't have aaron gordon in their previous match against dallas. Michael porter sat out at least one of those games Douses a good team and lucas. An unstoppable offense player. But i just don't trust the people around him and i think the denver could win that series. And then you get to the point okay. Who's at the top now. Utah phoenix if one of those teams as the theme that denver faces in the second round. Do you really think that it's impossible. Denver couldn't win one of those series. Because i don't i think they could absolutely one of those series because they have the best player and so often that is the that is what matters in a playoff series. And i don't know where this is ultimately going to end up but i tend to think and i tend to trust nicole yokich and i tend to trust joe-marie and i tend to trust michael porter jr. Unfortunately jamal there but trusting. Those guys has has really led me wrong yet. And and i tend to think that those guys just the way that they are wired the way they have fit together and played. Well anything is really possible. So i'm not going to count them out just yet. Yeah i I fully concur with that. I think Just like you mentioned. I i really honed in on on the nuggets. Post jamal Just to get a read of where the team was at and where they were headed in It just hasn't felt like i mean i've seen teams have injuries. And they go on a mini run but it feels more like there are. They're trying to overcompensate and Keep going what they had and the team is just like. We talked about the defense at the beginning. They somehow on the flour it will the change up their identity in a way and it doesn't feel fake to me so i you know i'm not going to place bets or anything actually i. I told france tonight that they should bet on the atlanta indiana game and i think some of them lost money because of this swyto bed but point being i i agree..

"Weeks ago. But i could be wrong about that. So don't quote me But he is. I think he's on his way he's been sending the smoke signals via social media. There's been nothing. Updating his status on the nuggets fronts they. I know that he is out on friday nights. He'll probably be out again on saturday. Just because like it'd be it'd be tough to having back on on a game against the brooklyn nets but give him a couple more days after that of then maybe he's back for a couple of the games before the end of the regular season and that would be the best things to help him get his feet under him a little bit. Have him get some shots up having get some wraps and see whether he could get some footing because denver they. They need another point guard that they can trust. Yeah no definitely is a great point. He was doing a lot of really great stuff at the beginning of the year as well and Looking at pj to. I'm really frustrated for pj a because the aca for the nuggets but also he was playing really well like he was doing some stuff that i talked my friend jackson. Franken of pod today or yesterday. I can't remember but Pj he's showing stuff is like a pull up shooter. Mid range is three still isn't falling below. Like he's just. It's so funny. Because i mean credits a tim conway in the player development staff then but every time this has just happened for four years every time somebody gets injured. There's another guy who's been playing ten minutes a game struggling to get more run into rotation that ends up starting and then they they will often. It was maliki easily. Three years is that three years ago. Now i'm the bubble is just ruined all time for me. I'll time is at an all time especially especially now like as as busy as we are but you. You're so right that the nuggets. They've done such a great job one of tim. Tim connelly's main tenants. As as a general manager has been to assemble as many good players on the roster as possible a lot of people stop at twelve. A lotta people stop at thirteen. Tim connolly likes to try to get to fifteen sixteen seventeen now if you possibly can and that can rub people the wrong way a little bit sometimes because there needs to be a pecking order like if you bring in guys that are good. They expect to play..

"Of homegrown in that sense. What's kind of been like for you over the last few years before becoming suggest Obviously even now seeing the team that you started with just developing took up a powerhouse that they are now. Yeah no. I mean we were. We got really lucky. The draft is you know it's been said before but i mean the draft is such an incredibly incredibly difficult vehicle to build your team through if it if it happens amazing but more often than not i would say i. It doesn't happen. I mean it's you have to draft a specific blair. I mean we picnic. Ohka forty one. We had two bigs. Before that it's is i would say we certainly liked him with. We liked them enough to but at the same time. I mean it's he surpassed anybody's expectations. I mean we had no idea she was going to be an mvp candidate in nigeria candidate. A favorite to win the whole thing. So you really tried to your best to big big guys were good but also who are who have all the intangibles to be even better. I think that's that's something that we blazed a lot of emphasis on sometimes talent is. I was seeing most at the time. Dallas of course very important but you know how is the person's work ethic you know how is is the blur tough enough to bleed through injuries in diversity and things like that you know is the personal good teammates you know how. How does the blair indirect with all the teammates and coaches and in the front office and even the people who in a golden goal. Don't matter as much in terms of decision making all of that kind of gets into the person's character so we blaze a huge amount of emphasis on character. And we try to do our best to learn as much as we can about certain blair's so i think the fact that you know. Some of the guys were doing well for a team. It's nicola jamal all the guys that we picked Your monay those guys in the being in are being in the being good because of who they are as people and they have no ego there. All team i in that is very contagious in the locker room. So even the guys that we ended up acquiring during trays we end up signing them. They come in the immediate instant when you know what the what. The culture is in denver. And you're gonna stick out if you do have a big. You're going to stick out in the locker room. Thankfully we don't have players like that right now. And i think this is a direct result of you know why the team's doing well and so that's that's that's been our philosophy. It's been a working whether it's always going to work. Who knows but it has been working over the last couple years to say it has been working especially with you mentioned at the end about Guys that you acquire automatically kind of justice system quickly on understanding what it means to be a denver nuggets. I'm right to the trailer you has on a nato win streaks all these guys kind of louis buying an interest in playing with motivate as opposed to maybe. Something's may taking a super long time to kind of joan. Figure it out with those games. Look if you want to help make you think that it makes it so easy if you guys kind of joe right away. I'm all those guys played so all together nicoli which is being one on one of the main engines of that. I feel like you know guys who come in who are brilliant players already the understand it. It's so easy to play with a superstar who is all about the team and all about making everybody else. Good nothing that just makes everything so much easier. That's probably the biggest thing..

Aaron Gordon Makes His Debut for the Nuggets Against the Hawks
"All right. Get into a little bit of basketball here. Aaron gordon the big acquisition at the deadline for the denver nuggets made his debut sunday verse. The hawks a solid debut might look the line and say thirteen points on six of nine shooting. That is exactly what the nuggets want. He played really well off to coca shed a beautiful dunk on the baseline. This is what they want him to be. They want him to be a cutter playing with better players for the first time in his career. I mean he's played with better players and vuckovich but not a player. I'm nicola yokich is standards. I just wondered when aaron gordon went over to the nuggets. Would he be able to cut that dribbling out. He played more like a superstar more ball in his hands. I'm going to do this thing on my own. Can he be a support player. He used nicole yoga's gravity pretty well in this game they will pick and roll action going nine shots. The only misses were from three point. Land the more tuesday better with aaron gordon. But he if he can fill that jeremy grant role that they lost last year in the playoffs. Just be that guy who's a third option and hit shots. I mean that is absolutely

NBA Chatter With Jackie MacMullan
"The nba comes back in full steam tonight. We're going to talk about a one year anniversary of the day. We call it the go bear game when everything changed. It was leading up to the week before. Boston song conferences. Five six days beforehand. There's utah's in boston. The utah guys get infected. Actually feels like it could have been a lot worse from that standpoint but in some ways it feels like it's been a year in other ways it feels like it's been five years but one thing that is for sure as the nba is a hell of a lot different a year later. What what's the biggest thing that's jumped out to you in the past year other than the no fans you know. I think the dirty little secret bill is just a mental health of we talk a little bit about the mental health of the players. I think it's that plus the mental health of the coaches. I would add that. Gm's ev involved like it it it just. There wasn't enough time. there wasn't an time off and and they knew that and that's why they wanted to start january but broadcast partners. Put the foot down and it. Just i see a steel seal the ripple effects of it when you talk to guys which is not easy to do these days because you're not in an arena. You're not sitting down and shooting the breeze with guys before the game like we normally do but when you get people on the phone or in a private moment you know what one had said to me about three days ago. This is so stupid. You gotta do it. But they're like it's just he one of the one another different. Gm said to me you know. I went in the other day to work is in their team has scuffling a little bit and he said i didn't like i wasn't talking about like hey you know you need to keep your elbow win. He said i just went to all and said like. Are you guys ok not about. I'm going to talk about basketball. Like are you okay. Yeah 'cause 'cause it's been a long haul now and and i think it's obviously a reflection of society as a whole. It's been a long haul for all walks of life in every profession and not to mention the people that aren't working. You know we could. We could spend a whole day on that. But that to me is the overwhelming thing that i notice and they're still great basketball being played. I give the guys that are cutting through this amazing amount of credit especially those final four teams which i think when you look back. Now they all struggled. Yeah lakers not until anthony davis went down with the celtics. Certainly the denver nuggets came out of the. You know the gate. Six and seven the miami heat you know. They were a plan team or out of the playoffs in the early. Start and i think that's a coincidence.
Rudy Gobert's Transformation Started In The D-League
"On sunday rudy. Gobert made his second straight appearance in an nba. All star game. Tom make it a second confederate and for years. Now the big man with the even bigger wingspan. There's been a dominant force within the nba. Tolbert defensive player of the year. There was a time when that was not the case. Time when rudy gobert future was very much in doubt. Today the fx christopher come ronnie takes us back to the time when go gobert was uncertain about where it was headed and explains how he climbed his way to the top. They knew that if he could fill out if he could continue to develop defensively and add various tidbits to his game. Offensively could potentially become a game changer in the league. That's their mind in rudy's mind. He always believed that he would took from wondering athletic. I'm under scotto. It's monday march eighth. And this is the league. It felt like something great emotion and ask past. I s not get this. This is here. you're gonna be the athlete. It stays with you so chris basketball fan today. Think of rudy gobert this absolute force you know a guy who dominates around the rim often makes other teams change their style of play when they face him. But you recently spoke with rudy and wrote about how that has not always been the case so take us back to the days when rudy gobert was not yet rudy. Gobert there. Yes so rudy. Gobert was drafted by the denver nuggets in two thousand thirteen and acquired by the jazz in a draft night. Trade played for show les the french league and his sizeable things into the twenty seventh overall. Pick and he came into the league as a relative unknown. What you'll bring to this team. I mean i i know. You're very long and and a defensive presence. What do you think you can. How can you help this team right away right away. Yeah can we. He had worked his way up the international level coming up in france he had to work himself onto the radar of even french national teams. He wasn't really all that known as a fifteen sixteen year old. How long have you been playing basketball nine years nine. So did you grow up playing soccer before he was on jazz team. That had several high draft picks on it. They had derrick favors. Ns canter to former high draft picks. Big men that played rudy's position. They had a veteran and andreas. Who was a veteran presence on that team as a big man and under that regime rudy kind of found himself as the odd man out but the jess drafted him and took him on as a project and he apparently was not the most stylish guy. What he i community league. yes so obviously. When you're twenty one year old seven foot one kit. That's tall and gangly. It's hard to find clothes that fit you. Great i was going to be on. Is doing right now if you see rudy these various nba awards where he's won the nba defensive player of the year. Two times now. He's showing up and looking very much like a stylistic parisian that he probably always wanted to be back in two thousand thirteen when he was still sort of odd man out on the jazz as you put it. He got sent down to the bakersfield jam of what was then the d. league. i from a life standpoint. What was it. Like for rudy gobert. End up so far off the beaten path and you know in one of the rougher parts of california yes so it's a culture shock for anybody. I think who wants to be a professional basketball player to have to go to a place like bakersfield. California bakersfield has kind of a rough and tumble streak about it. It isn't the most friendliest places. Well tonight we are taking an in depth look into black tar heroin and its presence here in kern county. Rudy's coach will void talked about it would be culture shock for anybody. Let alone a parisian arriving in bakersfield. Which is we're like community area where where are rena and everything was based. That is kind of like mess. Mess capital of the world. So i think he was not going to find a croissant sprint. Snow and anywhere around there. The coaches just told him to stay in his hotel room. And just relax tries to be honest. tells hotel for the most in when he wanted to go work out at the gym. the bakersfield complex. Had you know that all that stuff in their facility but it was very much like. It was almost like a private school in that. He went from work to the hotel room. And that's
Aaron Nesmith Shows Promise as Celtics Beat Nuggets
"Start with tonight. Again. You had a few things going on. The number one again. We could easily run through the most important things that happened the game, but it's really hard not to look at this and say that this was kind of like the irony Smith game and not because he played great. I thought he was pretty okay, but he did he was the first guy off the bench that matter. He played 23 minutes A lot of people were saying maybe he was rewarded for his effort you suck cuz he was running around like crazy. He still looks pretty tentative and lost at times but like he's trying and this is what we talked about. It's not that Arnie Smith and we were arguing about this on our thread all day. He's not that are inducements birth. Then the players out there. You're not better than SAM-e. He's not but you want him to be you gotta give him a shot. You gotta live and learn with a little bit. I'll take an effort like this every single time if he's out there totally imperfect choice at times he disappeared but I mean nothing just nothing but positives off of tonight. I don't think yeah. Definitely I mean, but I'm with you I mean and think he looks amazing out there, but he took a little more comfortable than we've seen them before in the past, right and also think that the rest of his teammates are starting to realize okay like the starting to look for him now more often and I think a lot of that has to do with his effort. I mean you putting effort on the defensive end of the floor or specially in the game against the Denver Nuggets, you know, I think that that went a long way and I think they rewarded him they were looking for him for open shots and credit to him. He wasn't afraid to to take those so much credit to the rookie but I mean is this Thursday? I'm now if this like the the rotation we this is the something just fix it was it is this all it took for everyone to just Panic real quick. And then this other come out here and beat the Nuggets and now all the problems are solved no, come on.

"What was kind of eye-opening he was in that Lakers series and you always know Gary's going to bring a defensively like you mentioned he changed the Utah series. They don't push Utah to 7 probably or or when that serious doubt Kerry Harris home and then he was great defensively in the Clippers series, but he needed closed games for Denver against the Lakers towards the back half of that series and part of the reason was The Lakers didn't really have that match up for Gary like he you know was guarding Paul George and Donovan Mitchell Lakers and have that guard he need to shut down but also just need his offense made it so he couldn't really be on the floor. Like I said towards the back half that Lakers series montamore supplying over him. So that was big. I thought I thought that was very notable quote because you know, you would think based on how those first two series want that really regardless of what he was giving you on offense. He would be a guy that Denver and have closing games, but he wasn't home. So I think Denver will certainly try to trade him maybe not try to trade him but they're not adverse to trading him. I don't think at this point. I mean you guys know he almost in Indiana Pacer a couple of years ago or three years ago whenever that deal fell through I think though maybe attempt to go out and get a Jew holiday. Gary would have to be the main guy in that job. Package. I don't know what the Pelicans think at your holiday. I can't imagine they're too high on him after how the playoffs ended. But yeah, I don't know his money does make it tough choice if you were going to say. All right, we're going to move Gary Harris to the bench. I mean that's eighteen nineteen million coming off the bench. That's tough for a guy who doesn't give you a lot offensive Lee right now. Yeah, that's that's where I'm at with your hair. So you kind of right now the strikes you as a prototypical that prototypical shooting guard on a good team. That is a good Defender. But yeah shooter month and I like that you mentioned it hypothetical trade cuz me and Mark were talking before but I didn't really think of any hypothetical trades. I'm not like the kind of person to do that. But I definitely seen rumors about Jrue Holiday out there and brought it up man. Hey George solidly just straight-up. He talks about it with Adam on on the keeping 1000 podcast, but then he just brought it right out Twitter and that blew up and that was funny but it's been cool like seeing George being the one considering he was the last coach during the last Western Conference Finals around the way that he pioneered for for Denver was really cool. But yeah, I drew holiday makes a ton of sense, but I just I don't know how long they'd be on the tape be willing to take on Gary's money. And well, I think they would be willing to but it just depends what you be willing to package with that wage. Yeah, Denver probably has to be like, all right, we'll give you maybe 2 future firsts and you know, then the nuggets as an organization have historically been pretty adverse to giving up first-rounders absolutely have to so yeah that probably the question Denver assassin selves. Yeah, especially considering I mean I was going back through it the other day and I think Tim Conley probably has the best draft tracker out of any current, you know, hired president of basketball Lobster GM, whoever's making.

"So I think he definitely realizes that defense is working to put a lot of work and but you know, there's a lot of other countries to one of Michael Malone's messages to mtj. This summer is to become more this office is not the summer is to become a better catch-and-shoot guy and kind of like directly not directly in the mold, but I could see Denver running a lot of like Miami Heat asked sets that they run for Duncan Robinson and Tyler hero those quadruple handoffs where they or the ones where they send those guys off double triple star screens. I think Denver is going to want to run a lot of that stuff for m p j and if you can become like a quicker catch-and-shoot guy, he's going to be deadly in those situations because he's already 6:10. Nobody can really block his shot. We saw that just, you know, even in the playoffs like him just shooting it right in the eye of LeBron James and LeBron khong Do anything about it? Cuz mpj 6:10. The rest of the week can't really do anything about it either. So if you can become better in kind of those quick catch-and-shoot situations, I feel like that is a need to a lot of just easy shots for him. And I think Denver is going to run a lot of that stuff for him next season. He's got to get better moving without the ball to he just stands and watches a lot and sometimes that's easy to do when yo kitchen murderer just kind of run they're running their two-man game, but he's got to get better at moving without the ball. And another part of it is Denver's just kind of got A Sneak operate him more into their offense because I've kind of been saying this this this whole podcast, but if it wasn't the yogesh Marie to Man game a lot of times it was just TJ or Jeremy Grant or or somebody else taken a corner three or a wing three at the end of the shot clock. So Denver's also got to work to incorporate him or run some stuff for him at a higher clip than they did last year. I think they'll do that going forward. Yeah. Yeah. Definitely. I agree with that and especially speaking on I mean M PJ's shot like some of the shots he was hitting new. He's really just phenomenal at the one dribble and Pub over somebody it's just been nuts to watch but you know that kind of leads into one last part about the starting lineup and you mentioned to guard potentially starting Will Barton their unfortunate looking at Gary Harris and and where he's at. I think I wrote an article about it too and how he really helped change the Clippers series and and that's totally true. I mean, I remember I spoke to Thursday. I did a podcast with Adam right before game five against against Utah and it almost felt like we're doing a post-mortem for Denver and then I remember I hit him up to the ends after Iraq after they won game 7 I was like, I guess I should keep rooting against the the Nuggets that right. But I mean you look at what Gary did to completely change things defensively against the Jazz and and against the Clippers as well. But then he was almost unplayable against the Lakers because of his offensive shortcomings and I Think It's just tough looking at his money moving forward and his place in I mean, I think there's still a place down in line up. But then you see what happens against the Lakers and I think unless there's like a major Improvement or what would you call a re provement I guess cuz I mean you did used to have that game. It's it's hard to see him being a viable part of a clothing line up in a high-level situation like that again..

"But I I don't know man. I think this is going to be just a really tight series and. One question or positive unit at the detriment of of Miami to talk down that more to build them up actually I. If this Miami Team to make a finals with this, be probably the least talented team to make the final since two thousand or one of them. Lease talented I mean share on paper but they're just so you know they're so low coach there. So well constructed that it works. and as such smart players. I, know Brad Stevens actually said either yesterday the day before this is the Eastern Conference version goals. It was way the way they just you know the screens they said the off ball movement they have their off ball movement is amaze- yeah in their back door cuts when you're overplaying is jus-. Yeah they're they're all active off on its you know I mean I I guess they'd be the least talented will. Okay I should rephrase I mean Lebron but I'm that's cavs teams might have been at least out. And I. Don't mean you know me I don't mean that in a dish way I just mean like they're so they're they're outlaying their talent level I think would be the way to put it. I mean Bam is incredible and I think he's taken another step in the bubble Jimmy has been playing like he's a top ten player but. I just think in of looking at top end talent. This is not a team that you would expect to make the finals and I'm not saying that they will I still think I would still pick Boston even though losing game one hurts but we'll see man. I don't think I can pick Boston unless I know hayward will be back sooner rather than later. Hey, come on the Shimmy Games going to happen he's GonNa. Hit like three threes. In Lockdown You See. It's just so confusing.

He's fine. I remember biggby shooter. Yeah. I remember watching him at Smu and thinking he was going to be like a God in the NBA and I should have just realized always playing mid major competition but.

"If the Lakers save the Lakers have the best player in two way and then Yokich is to your to air. Have you WanNa put it and then the nuggets probably have the next. Like five of the six best next players. Yeah I wrong in saying that, I, mean I feel like the the nuggets have a lot more ways they could go in terms of their bench rotation in just a rotation in general and I I I'm not gonNA pick somebody I. Don't know who I would who I would pick I. Think obviously you lean the Lakers because they have Lebron James. It's easier to depict Lebron James and pick against him but I wouldn't be surprised at off the nuggets find a way to to to win this series. Yeah I think they can hang but Lebron I think have a notch just enough perimeter defense with between Craig between Harrison soon, grants slow slowdown abroad I do think Anthony. Davis. If they can get him really going in the pick and roll that could just be deadly up that. Especially, with Yokich, defending them I, I mean we might see an all time record for most lobs in a in a game the way they're going to try to just you know throw it right over Yokich every. I don't know I'm interested to see how van Yoga I want to go back and watch the games that they played this year to see how they they played against ad because I feel like Yokich did go one of the centers and they had either grant or millsap on a which is a toss but I think what they're going to do in my just from what I've seen. mean the way that they played. In PG. Obviously, they don't have anybody on the wings that size that can really get down with them. I mean grant. Guarded a allowance time but they were doing a lot of trapping in double teams like they were trapping all the pick and rolls and they were actually out everything. On the weak side corner and it was actually working really well, that was one of the new changes at the implemented when Gary Harris came back because he had he gave him the quickness to actually be able to do that on the weak side. And that was able to neutralize a lot of what the clippers were doing in pick and roll and Fortson tougher shot. So I think they'll probably look to do that against Lebron and I do I think ADP's verticality. His bill will be difficult though as a really risky strategy to A. Zoo. Trap or blitz about handler a guy with vision? Lebron. But I think if you think about it though I mean. I I'm not as worried about the guys are catching the ball off. No How Like I mean Danny Green, is not shot well I think there's a little bit better against Houston, but I mean he was he struggled mightily against Portland I mean they've the Lakers been playing while I'm not trying to discredit them. They're obviously a good team probably the best team left in the bubble But I don't know man I think this is going to be a good series I'm excited I think it'll go six or seven games If. I would pick away I I just I'm excited for it..

"Think Malone coach very well defensively, they played really good a lot of Judah Craig grant in Harris mainly, the big three defenders Yoga didn't get torched salt. That's a good thing you know so I mean just the credit, a lot of credit zender they just they stuck in their down three one and I saw this thing it was the three best teams of all time number three. The the warriors back you know when they were winning it all. Or to the ninety, six polls, the number one, the down three one Denver Nuggets.

Not to discredit the nuggets but they just like I don't know where it came from and to do that to series in a row is absurd to me like I can't even imagine that and it just happened I. Mean we're just watched it happen. It feels like months ago that that we wash them come back against Utah in those three weeks ago. Yeah. And it's it's just been a crazy playoffs. Who one of the guys who really stood out for me though is Jeremy Grant especially. him being able to move back to playing the four a little bit more. With Gary Harris coming back I don't remember I mean he was playing the fucking to most of the bubble like obviously not where Jeremy v and so he was I mean he's a good perimeter defender but. Getting us the primary guard on Donovan Mitchell until Gary, Harris returned in the bubble like I that that is such a huge ask for somebody his size to try and cover somebody that small in fast But I mean, he hit big shots he is not shot incredibly well in the playoffs but he play one..

How do I solve this specific puzzle and over here's a puzzle how do I solve that one and I just think the League is moving more and more were that value as more and more important? Yeah. No I totally agree and we'll see if if Toronto Masoum happen in the playoffs I'm I'm actually pretty excited the my like their defense or defence me too but love Toronto. I just don't know about the half court though there are half court offense is like even against Brooklyn it was struggling a little bit so I mean well. I'll tell you this one. This is what I'm afraid of what the League I've talked about it. A little bit of I'm watching the show Joel embiid out of the playoffs Karl Anthony towns didn't even make the playoffs Nikolay Yokich looks like he's going to get bounced. I'm really worried that there's ways to break basketball that I think are very uninteresting. And teams like Dallas and Houston, and now this Utah's evolving into this team with spread pick and roll. You have a big that just rolls to the rim. All he does is dunk it, and this is what works I mean. It's funny. A couple of years ago we thought and bead towns. Yokich this was the face of the center position it might. Actually be Thais Tucker and go bare and to me that's unfortunate. So I'm rooting for the teams that have tried things that are neither that aren't traditional but they're also not one dimensional and that's what the raptors are to me. They're such a multidimensional team that I. Hope That's the future I'm rooting for the soul of basketball because I hope it's. Versatile interesting in unique and not spread the court role. One big man have dynamic point guards that can get into the lane and crazy things happen. Yeah. I might be the only one though because no I I I really like what you're saying here because I actually I mike in some trouble for saying this from one of my friends who covers average. I don't like. Okay. No offense of rating. Wise. Their best NBA offense fall. Time. Are they really the best MBA offense all time. That's like I know that sounds so contradictory. But you look at it I'm like it's just reminds me so much of like when I was growing up and I like early twenty tens the spread spread option became huge in college football, and so you start seeing all these teams like big twelve payroll. And, some of the SEC schools that became really successful. They start just running crazy spread spread pick and roll African I'm getting in tune..

"Or not blowing up proportion, but it's like magnified the weaknesses of the Ti way you wouldn't have expected otherwise I think the what was most intriguing me when I was following this team getting rid of the trade deadline I remember thinking, okay this is either Denver's going to make a move or like this is where we find out what the Front Office thinks what the team is doing right now I don't know if out similar similarly that because I know obviously there's a difference between rumblings of trades from from media outlets, actual trade news. But there were assets in place. Beasley distracted but I think kinda showed a little bit to the front office isn't necessarily not that they're not sure where the teams at but that they're kind of still trying to feel out where the team is at moving forward because you have like a really interesting conglomerate of talent. I think Denver's probably top six top five roster in terms of raw talent on the team. But. Obviously, this is different I mean looking at how Michael Porter Jr. Jeremy Grant Paul MILLSAP was they're all three very different players in different stages of their career and trying to figure out the front court works I think that's been something that's been battle against the whole year almost. Yeah it's it's definitely. They have I would say a top five collection of offense of talent. You separate the two ends of the court. You know it's funny Denver's than third best offense in the playoffs right now they're down three games to one. They have the third best offense of everybody. They're scoring the ball at an amazing clip like a one twenty something offensive rating on twenty three that that would be pretty historic So the the fact that they're this good offensively just shows you how bad they've been defensively, I, think again, this comes back to time there's blessing and curses in sports, and sometimes you don't know which is which for years to come and I think last year Melik, Beasley was a big part of why Denver was able to extend that. Portland series to seven games He was sort of redundant given some of the talent that they had a around him and they moved on from him Denver in some ways had too much talent over the last three years and they had guys like me Beasley. Even want to run a Gomez well of use of choose obviously turned out to be a great player. Those guys that weren't getting minutes by virtue of you had so many players that they were second third fourth on the depth chart. So I I think that going into a series like this and having your your weaknesses get exposed like they are has allowed Denver to. Say Okay. These are the guys that can do this and can't do that, and these are the guys that maybe in the regular season there Tori, Craig's you know maybe even your Paul millsaps that covered for you in certain ways during the regular season that no longer can actually cover for you in a playoff series..

"Of the great voices of Denver Sports and the and the almost Utah Nuggets the man Adam Marris Adam. How how're you doing today man? I'm good but according to my recent reviews on my show, not a great voice of the Utah Jazz a lot of you touch downs happy that I'm not giving Utah more praise I. Guess in my Denver Nuggets show yeah that's funny. How that works I guess I mean you're supposed to be a noun timezone sports I guess not just. A WHO knows man but So I'm really excited to have you on I wanted to a I mean first of all do tossed of locked on nuggets. Everything with the NBA are now. In the creative production at the end Vr and just the highlight that obviously you can go more in depth but I want to explain for people because it's been really cool FM. You see how everything's wrong with you guys obviously followed you before the VR started up because I try and keep up with every team you know and you have like probably the best nuggets knowledge out there. So I'm with the end VR. Guys started up just the your own sports media but you're like it's legit credential and you have a sports bar with the recording studio in it and I think that is legit. One of those things ever 'cause I've never seen that ever before and I think with how swertz me going. We can hit on that a little bit too I think that it's a really interesting viable way to look at how we can continue to grow on produce media channels. dvr It's It's it's a unique venture coming up now on one year from when we launched I think we launched September twenty four. So we're about a month shy and the whole idea behind it. Maybe. You have a sense of this. You know being sort of in the middle part of the country, but so much of national sports coverage. Really. Belongs to the coast even even covering the better covering the sports in the league's things that take place in in middle America inside not along the coast there covered by people on the coast and they're either overlook in my opinion often looked or just disgusting away without a lot of depth certainly thought a lot of love. And attention and care, and so I think this was sort of a response to that especially when you saw some of these new startups come in. Hiring people from out of the state of Colorado with no reference point to anything about how the city and culture and everything else exists. We thought you know what? Let's make our own. Let's try to make it with the same quality and care of some of the big networks..

"On the call the Denver Nuggets beat the Orlando Magic last night one thirteen to one oh four but if you weren't following the game you wouldn't know that the Denver Nuggets needed eight twenty seven to nothing run in the third quarter to overtake the Orlando Magic and even then it went down to the wire excuse me I have church stop the legend it was twenty four nothing not twenty seven nothing I believe is like twenty seven to three at one point but it was a twenty four nothing run to start and the nuggets end up being a win over the magic but I brought this up when Paul Klee joined me last hour and he agreed we have crossed the threshold where we put a lot of stock in two games against the Orlando Magic now some people were firing off tweets about how the nuggets to play down to their competition were back in that is certainly their reputation in the last few years but honestly I have to and I'm doing this in a positive way in a negative way the nuggets only games that we should really take stock in in really draw something from Lakers clippers box Sixers jazz rockets little bit of Dallas because of their rice but games against okay see Phoenix Orlando Brooklyn it's not it's not relevant what is relevant is what they do against the top teams in the NBA and that's a good thing two years ago when the nuggets were losing to inferior teams it costs them a spot in the postseason this year there's no doubt this team is gonna make the playoffs this team is going to be a top four seat they're probably going to win the division we're all pretty sure about that so it's a compliment to say to the Denver not and we're not worried about Orlando games we're not worried about Brooklyn games we're not worried about Phoenix games it's the same reason why lebron James and we'll talk about this towards the end of the show lebron James is playing down the match up with Yanis tonight because lebron James is at a certain point where games on December nineteenth do not matter to him Denver Nuggets on at that point yet if they're playing the Lakers or the box tonight December nineteenth gains will matter but they're at the point where games against teams that aren't going to factor in the playoff conversation or bi lo seeds I'm not going take positive or negative I'm getting off the roller coaster and I'm focusing on the big time games and drying my conclusions from those right wrong or indifferent that's the way I'm approaching it with the Denver Nuggets five two two nine eight seven two if you want to react to any of the three stories that are driving the show I was especially verbose in that segment so I look at the clock and I say I'm trying to give away.
