Take through the year before and then the year after that he was able to was able to resign that contract. What was it like kind of before. And what was it like this season knowing that that was behind in everybody was pushing in the same direction. It was the same honestly. I didn't think about it too much. That didn't lose sleep. Didn't feel pressure. You know resign or leave it You know he's the guy that we've been through a lot together. I knew he wanted to build something special here Right now we. We definitely have a chance to do that. So knowing him know the type of person is they. Don't worry about it too much. I know that's my that's my brother. whatever you decided to do i'll support of One hundred percent just wanted him to be happy. But i'm definitely happy. Stay chris look. We seen some wild writing especially in phoenix with them. Count money doing all the whatever extra stuff. Why janas at the free throw line. How do you expect the milwaukee crowd's response tomorrow night man. I can't wait to see describe tamar even outside. I haven't seen the pictures and videos at dares district even one way out there. Pack even here. They're they're packed away. So i can only imagine what it's gonna be here tomorrow I know.

It's just a chance to play for team. Usa harm i did you know for the world cup. We had a disappointing finish Part of that is you know to make up for that And another is like i said being olympian Represents your country.

"Welcome back to ball court and visit the world basketball. I am co drew. And as you know i love to talk about how live today. We're gonna be talking about allen's caruso ally roussel acc. Fresh the high wire from the los angeles lakers has been cau- flying high. Actually i was was detained and arrested in texas or marijuana possession. What took place was. He was going through an airport and he had a grinder that had some residue at dover. Rob what would i say a great week obvious. Offseason is going very well. So he had us a residue in that Griped and he was detained for now to me. I find it kind of comical about the whole situation being for the fact that he plays for the los angeles lakers in los angeles. Marijuana is actually very much legal and he would have been caught with that grinder and it would have to dispose of the grinder in the los angeles airport. They do have facilities where they'd be able to dispose of quieter and any other products like that but the fact that he wasn't texas visiting family joined his offseason. Obviously everything in texas is going to go on everything from la translate open the texas as he clearly found out now a- ponding on this story being done there wasn't no we didn't get word of what l. a. was going to be doing ours any repercussions towards it. I do believe that it is is off season at worst. Mba could just give him a fine because it's not like he's gonna be kicked out of league or anything l. Boogie cousins is still in the league. I'm not snitching sank in but neither ahead of it. So i'd have to say shot. See you as caruso. Thank you for baker to show Possibly funny way you now on whole coming back you know hidden. He won't like lebron. Probably might not gonna have round brownie after what happened with brawny early last year. Get caught no smoking the blood on his live. So there you go allows so was like you ain't gonna get dinner over james home so let's go ahead and move on now we're going to go ahead and take a closer look a isil a certain things that has been taking place in the basketball world. First and foremost we want to go ahead and talk about benson's can philly fans trust ben. Simmons and trust is process any further. Now in my opinion from what. I've actually seen it can no longer happen. The of the relationship between philadelphia and ben simmons has been shrink and it's been spayed beyond belief as a matter of back on my nets on the next episode of ball court. I'm gonna have a huge issue. Oh and love me will be on with nimble expand. Bring him all talk about the whole thing. That's taking place. Ben simmons and the process but in my opinion and i wanted to go on record so this way when he comes in and play him back with and i play the sound bite. I wanted to hear exactly what i'm saying right. Philadelphia has trusted. This process sold. They they got rid of l. faults because they said that marquel foltz shot was broken. And there's no ex- held onto ben. Simmons made excuses benson's even it's been a while that we've been wanted him to have a jump shot as a matter of fact in an interview in two thousand eighteen kobe bryant. Yes the great kobe. Bryant has stated that eat that senate is gonna regret not having a joke shot. In britain big about this look how important he has been but also look how guarded he has been when he was at lsu. We weren't getting the chance to see. Ben simmons in his entirety due to injury. They said he was sitting. And then right after that he got into the league. You got into league and set his rookie year so we didn't get a chance to see what we did see. You didn't have a jump shot. It told us it would be better. As a matter of fact. I did a show on that jump. Shot was getting better at the beginning of the season. He threes is doing a lot of great things or what happened. Let me go ahead a down. What happened in that left hooks series. That reason why we can no longer trust benson. It's outside of the fact that he shot thirty four percent from the free-throw rain thirty four percent. That sat numbers shack numbers anywhere. Outside of that he got smoke in. The big lights came on. Ben simmons from struck down in those big leads. He tried to hide away from me. He's shied away. I saw on one play. He had a wide open dunk at a six ten with his sits. Ten frame he caught that path. He was ahead of chew players past it. All and then teammate was. He turned to argue with the rat about about that call. That was made or miss call. That was me that to me spoke volumes. That one incident right. There spoke volumes. Because i said to myself as the philly fan. I can no longer trust you. You're willing to talk and argue with the rap but you're not willing to play hard enough to throw out a dumped onto people smalley. You're not tough enough to go ahead and take the shots that we need. You're not you're you don't have that competitive edge. You are not philadelphia player. You have to understand legend affiliate philly tough player's allen. Iverson andre. the doctor j. These are some of the top players. he's meatball legends. These are the people that you could take any park in philly. And they would represent the city the town to their fullest at gillette Eight you take into any park philly your anywhere. He's gonna come out hop out of the truck at rockford looking like katya ruckus way back in the day. He's going do that. I feel that about joe. Lillard me when. I see him when i see him play. Razzie him go at it. I see him get everything to the process. I'm not seeing that wrong. Ben simmons at ben simmons. There's been a lot of people did a lot of spin. This is too many people babying him and telling him that. It's gonna be okay but you you have to think about it. You're in a league. Filled with young men trying to make it to the top trying to be the best trying to be the next kobe bryant. And you have everything and you'll quarter. You're a big man even handed the ball. You can pass the ball. You have great court vision and all you have to do is worse than a junk shop now. A lot of people don't watch basketball who don't listen to basketball sitting up. You know what that's probably difficult to get a jump shot this late game but dwight howard improved his jump. Shot look how. Many men have changed games around started spreading the floor but ben simmons complacent as philadelphia as a philadelphia fan. No way it could watch. Somebody be complacent so i tell you. Ben simmons will be suiting up in philadelphia and the worst part about it is.

I did the same thing with jane's fantastic. He has the right attitude. Fundamentals are shamed so and now it's just about him figuring out exactly what his game is. Assigned appears shoes to devon booker. Once you said to the young one and the other shoe said be legendary. Kobe explained in detail in a conversation that night. What what he thought. It meant for devon booker to become legendary. He's at the devon booker. You're going to have to go through golden state or whether it's golden state of the bronx. La it's the same lesson right and coby said it's every single detail no shortcuts ever and so devon now has on. His wrist tattooed be legendary. Say the soul never goes and that's how it is for me. You know i got be legendary tight on arm. And that's something that code left me with you know in our in our final game against each other so exactly one year after that game against kobe. Mike devon booker plays the celtics and he has game of his life. The game of pretty much anyone's life with forty five points. Stick around and see what happens to forty nine. And they'll go to the line for fifty cents out a record. Sixty one points for devon footer avenue points for devon booker. Most boys in the league since kobe's eighty-one in two thousand six were you thinking back in two thousand seventeen when you were watching. Devon booker dropped seventy. I did not see that game live. It's one of those things where i'm at another game another nba game of people like hey devon booker's got sixty early in the fourth whatever it was like what how many active players have seventy point in the nba. Right now. None other than seven did devon booker here from kobe. After that specific seventy point game. Yeah he did. He texted him and it had kobe with know the arm. Flexing the muscles and that sticks with them to this day you can see what impact it has on him. That encouragement that feedback. That relationship sadly only lasted five years. But he's got some memories and he's got his head conversations private conversations that they had that certainly effective now coming up how devon booker's performance in the bubble got the attention of the entire league including chris paul So mike devons younger. Half sister maya she has a rare chromosomal. Disorder called micro. Deletion syndrome has special needs as a result of that. I know devon is incredibly close with maya how has his relationship with his sister impacted him as a human being as not just a player but person. Well you hear stories about people and other cities if they went on the road devon my very well spent time with special needs children and nobody knew about it because he wasn't looking for publicity probably shunned it and my has that effect on him. Sister maya what she means. She is not just a little sister. No she's not she's a spirit animal for me. She puts things in perspective for me. so good game or bad game you know whatever. It is good day bad day. Not about a bad game. Okay about not taking her to starbucks or not not plan her pool or something like that but taken every day as opportunity and you know saying what you can get out of it and a positive ways you know where she shows me. Daily devin seems incredibly grounded by that and connected to it and feels fortunate that he has that maya with his his relationship with other children of special needs is remarkable on the court in two thousand twenty. Mike devon booker was pretty remarkable in a different way. He made this huge impression in the nba bubble with the sun's going eight and they missed the playoffs in the bubble but for booker. Play that well in that setting. What did that do for his image and his reputation around the nba. Well that was the first bit of reputation he had around the nba. Outside of players and coaches people said it was a coming out party. But do you see it that way. I would say there was a party going on and more people got invited. Burger hit the glass. We got it for two and a. He is marvelous everything to couple of former players. Who are they watch a ton of. Nba live on the east coast. They don't necessarily see booker. He's not on prime time nationally. And all of a sudden the bubble going eight knowing booker he was great in all the games yes. He was legendary in that game against the clippers win. He somehow gets a shot over and past two of the. What six or seven best defensive players in the leak. While leonard and paul george to win it brooker on the drive goes up. There's shot he got an gave. Devon booker buzzer. Put up and push it in. And i remember i was sitting in my office here in washington watching all these afternoon public games and he hits the shot and i screamed out the fact that he just sort of went straight up with that perfect form on his jump. Shot over those two guys like you know what this is. The kind of thing that stays with a young player that drives him that drives his teammate. That gives everybody around him confidence in him. That is a different level and by the way. It certainly affected where. Chris paul thought. Walk them back to sports center breaking news from the nba adrian ascii senior. Nba insider with us. Woge half i. Paul is headed to phoenix suns. He'll go in a multi player deal from oklahoma city and now the sun's well. That's fascinating the idea that chris paul is basically scouting perspective teams. And he says that kid. That's the one. I want to work with because mike playing with chris. Paul historically speaking has not been easy like he. Is this leader. He is in some sense. A backseat driver if not the guy with hands squarely on the wheel. What did devon booker playing with. Chris paul and that power dynamic. Well i was with them before the trade as well pablo and he was on pins and needles hoping it would happen as he has said plan with chris for everybody because chris paul's tough chris paul's demanding but again devon booker looking at the small picture day to day. How do i give better. How do we get better. I think it helps immensely the money williams coach of the phoenix suns. Now was chris. Paul's coach early in his career. New orleans money williams told me that it seems like it's on the verge of a fight every practice and it's never on i mean it's never gonna get that far because they understand hit in. The playoffs is something. They're probably going to do. But then how do you advance most teams get in the playoffs. That happened to get there. Naked joan the door of the sweep. That's what happens in the nba. Booker does not want that. And to that. End he in. Chris paul and mikhail bridges and they probably have a little more tutoring and coaching up and foot. In the you know wear for eytan. that's my guest. Not anybody saying that. But he's a late bloomer. It all of a sudden you start. We're starting to.

I also should note that you're also more. Skeptical of millennials. Like me more than anyone else i know. So how is it that you got legitimately excited to spend quality time with a guy who was born in october nineteen ninety-six like right on the cusp of z in devon booker. Well one of the first things. You'll notice if you see this piece whether it's the broadcast piece or the written piece you're going to notice that devon booker embraces the notion of old head Old soul old anything people referred to you. I'm not sure how you take people referred to you as old head and it's also all salt and a couple of times. My closest friends wouldn't agree. But now here i'd say this growing up up just been always around. Older people encounter forced to mature. There was a social event. Actually this summer during the pandemic and arizona. We have a mutual devon booker. And i was sitting outside at this person's house having a bite one afternoon and they're old people hanging around telling stories and then you're young people you know people. In their early twenties people. He had played basketball with other names of people would would recognize and devon was sitting with the old people and i said what is it no other chair to go over there with the young folks outta war. I don't want to hear that. I want to hear more stories. And he sat there through. All the stories and listened mostly participated some.

"His team to the playoffs. I don't agree with all of these antibiotics but there is some truth to what he saying. Not about the offensive fouls necessarily. Because i think we're all gonna have to just adjust to that defensively. Zaylon is an issue. Chronic trying to construct lineups around zion. It's not easy defensively and it does take off some of the glimmer of that amazing scoring streak to me anyways that you describe earlier He went on to say lamelo ball. A cursory mentioned in your discussion. He's probably closer to a brand name. Malcolm brogdon than a walmart magic johnson. So can we cool our jets on him until he started finishing games consistently anytime someone tries to say that lamelo should it be compared to magic johnson. You know i'm gonna bring it up on this show. What did you think of that heater. It's a good take right. I don't even really know what it means. I've i've read that sentence multiple times. But now lamelo. I feel like we should have maybe talked about lamelo a little bit more. Like he's i think we did but like he's on a really great rookie scale contract and he is the best rookie. So that's terrific value. There's really it's just like not that complicated But i i'm i'm not really too deep into being lamelo because he's what is he like. Nineteen and the expectations were so wonky coming into the season. And i think he's blown all of them out of the water Easily no honeymoon period. So don't rain on the parade. I agree with you there. I just like his placement of lamelo ball closer to a brand name malcolm brogdon which i guess he's trying to say you know like a you know a a super size version of brockton is right now compared to like a poor man's version of magic johnson. I think that's relatively fair. Mean you get more athleticism from a lamelo ball. But he has a lot to prove still and i think that was his underlying point At the same time like he doesn't have that much to prove from a contractual value standpoint. Because you over delivered this year as a rookie with the injuries. There's kind of no way around it like. Who would you rather pay lamelo that rookie number or you know wisemen. Who's been a big time minus or anthony edwards by all the advance stats has been a big time minus so i think the value thing was kind of already sealed up now. Is he going to be worth a max contract three or four years from now. He definitely still has to prove that to me. And that's where i kind of agree with the emailer Here's one he's definitely getting max contract like it's already they already have like the paper printed out there just. It's in a locked box waiting for him to be eligible to sign it one hundred percent. I'm just saying is he going to be worth. It has to prove that to me. I don't think we saw enough from the first three months to say he's automatically going to be like a top fifteen level playmaker in three years. You know i. I still think that Dad jury is still out but he definitely get there and he. I'm more convinced he will get there then. I was at the start of this season. But i'm not You know like let's not rush to pay him every last dollar and just assume he's going to carry title contenders for the next decade. I think that is it is appropriate to pump the brakes just a little bit there. We had this question from lindsay. Michael tell you. She is a big shop. Professional sports executive longtime listener she would know about contracts. You'll value and she came at you. She said how. Do you mentioned jayson tatum..

Eric bledsoe cosc- fits your profile of these guards on losing teams who you're trying to prop into conversations that they don't belong in okay. It's not a slam dunk for chris. Paul it would be for me. I would have him on my thirteen. And i would feel absolutely great about it. You've made a lot. You've made a very compelling cases. I would say about eight or nine candidates so it's gonna be hard to call that list but some of those guys are thrown in there. Michael i mean come on we can. We don't really have to take those cases seriously. So i didn't say jimmy butler is jimmy butler even guard. I don't even know. I think he usually get sleighs guard. Yeah he usually classified as guard. I think i mean. I think the minute stuff comes back for him. Doesn't it yeah. Potentially he make my little fake little list here but he just kind of popped into my head as we were talking. yeah okay. Well that's a fun conversation.

I'll just say this over the course of an entire season chris. Paul has been rock solid steady every single night. He puts up the big assist numbers. You know he does all the little things. He plays hard on defense. He leads everything. I mean those kinds of things are very difficult to quantify and yet his impact stats are off the charts. If you're telling me who am. I more afraid of chris. Paul zach levine late-game situation in a seven game series or whatsoever. It's not is not even a calm. It's almost an insult to chris. Paul to have that kind of debate michael and so i just think that we need to reward this guy for what has been an absolutely phenomenal late career season for him.

So then it's worth its weight in gold right. Yeah no one hundred percent Okay give me your all mba guard. Stop talking this conversation michael. Let me give you some guys here. Okay damian lillard. Yes steph curry. Yes brad beal. No michael goodness there is no way bradley. Beal should be in this conversation for all the nba. You have absolutely gotta be kidding me. Do you know how bad orlando sees has been this year. I mean it's been a complete disaster right washington washington season. no i'm talking about orlando season orlando seventeen to thirty four right now. Absolutely everything has gone wrong. That could possibly go wrong for any team. Washington is one point. Five games above. Okay come on michael. And that's only because they beat last night otherwise it would be point five games. I mean they're basically. Having the exact same season invalidated bradley. Beal cannot be all nba. I'm sorry okay so you're wrong there but I have eight nine. We gotta work on your. We gotta work on your basketball. Your your coming from the boston celtics. Lineage where nothing is more important than winning. And you're gonna turn right back around and say let's hand it to the nba scoring leader on a team. That's won one out of every three games this year. It's truly okay. I can go on and on here. But i'm just going to say that bradley beal is going to make an nba team whether you like it or not. He's not and if we're going to have problems okay. I'm going to have to start a campaign not only accusing you of bad basketball. Values put all the voters. I don't think he's actually going to make it to be two in entirely all serious. I don't think bradley beal's be but continue. Actually i truly can't wait until the nba. But you know he's got this hip injury if he doesn't play again i can see him not making it but anyway he's got a win injury to i mean it just broken. The can't do it all right. Who else you got. Okay next up. James harden yes like he's just gonna make it kyrie irving gonna make it. Oh i think. Chris paul had a better season than kyrie irving. Gotta say okay. He's played an extra quarter games He's been out there every single night. he's been the most important piece we argue first or second. We have argued that. I mean kyrie's clearly third most important for brooklyn i would. I would say. Chris paul deserves it more than kyrie irving. I think that he is the third most important absolutely. But he's also the guy who has kind of been around The most since that sabbatical that he took earlier in the season. So when you kinda. Just tally up. You know hardens now going to be out for a little while with this hamstring and katie. Missed like two months an urban is kind of been. The guy who i think has played the most minutes without the other two stars. I could be wrong about that. But he's close is either him or heart and obviously but kyrie has just been the best season of his career by far. The numbers are just stay our eye popping and i watch a lot of nets basketball and single. He's just unstoppable like in a way that..

If josh had a question he just wanted to scream at us. Michael here comes. It's time to take by phoenix suns. Seriously they had the second best record in the nba. They just completed a season sweep on the team with the best record in the league. That's the utah jazz and have such a deep team with a great one. Two punch endeavoured booker and chris. Paul when will you guys finally talk about the phoenix. Suns on the podcast. Instead of the boston celtics brooklyn nets on every other episode. Well very fair question from josh. It wasn't impressive. Victory by phoenix on wednesday night over utah possession game late in the fourth quarter Winds up going a little bit dry with their offense in the last couple of possessions of regulation but they wind up coming out with great energy and execution in overtime to take that victory You could kind of call it a playoff preview. I would michael. I was kind of looking at that game through the lens. Of what will these teams look like. Once they hit the post season and phoenix has been absolutely impressive. Steady the hallway through the season so we should dive into. What's going on down in the desert so my first question to you. He mentions one two punch in booker and c. p. three is that the one two punch or the two one punch. I think when we're seeing late in that game for phoenix Who gets the ball. How are they going to run the offense. They did tend to kind of trend towards devon booker at some key moments there. I don't know how i felt about that. Michael i kind of thought the ball should have been in crisis. Hand my crazy a little bit. I know that you have this issue with devon booker and. I don't know where it had originally germinated from But booker's good he's really good and he's one of those few elite scorers in the league. Who can in crunch time. Just get any shot that he wants and you know he i think he scored what seven points in the first couple of minutes of the overtime before they kind of gave the ball to c. p. and let him him close which is just like the natural thing to do. Because chris paul is i think he's fourth and collect scoring this season in total points sees ridiculous last the trend that kind of it's been his whole career but last year with the thunder i mean he was absolutely dynamite down the stretch of every single game pretty much so i understand why you think that. Cpi should have the ball and money. Williams probably agrees with you but booker's like excellent. i think like the the numbers aren't superb. But when i watch him play. I have full confidence. That he's gonna hit every single shot ticks..

I mean come on gotta be kidding. me Maybe we should leave it there. Michael before we get into any more trouble. I liked this nomination for caruso though your point is very well taken like having guys under team control for a longer amount of time is more helpful to the organization. But i would say the lakers have squeezed. Every bit of value out of the alex crusoe experienced to date. And it's been a real success for their you know internal development which you know probably gets overlooked at the expense of their star chasing here over the last couple of years. He was a key piece and they kind of you know built his career up step by step in and kudos to him for sticking with the program and rolling with a lot of punches. Along the way ari.

I could have picked donovan mitchell and bam to kind of exemplify that category of player for sure. I just shows tatum and drama. Kind of randomly and so I'm one hundred percent with you donovan. Mitchell's contract is is is great The jazz should be absolutely thrilled to have him on that deal There are some other. Max contracts kind of in that realm. Pascal siakam is not looking superb slowing out for one second. Don't you think. Mitchell is given better value than tatum this year. I mean and better value than jamal.

"So after the whole model analysis sean came through and said the main takeaway here and as a celtics fan at pains me to say it. Perhaps ben was right. The campbell contract is really bad ryan ads. Thank you for mentioning kemba while it's not the worst contract and a vacuum. It's probably the heaviest anchor on a team that could otherwise be competing for a title. Michael michael michael are you willing to defend kemba and his contract. I mean it's not a great contract for sure. We've we've talked about that before i believe. Or maybe that's just like me in my dreams every single night Fretting the numbers. But if you had let me ask you. If you had the amnesty clause which use it on camera well no. I don't think so because he's still an integral part of what they do and how they play and he's not that he's not a negative for some not he's not russell westbrook for them right like he's still impacts winning they're better when he's on the floor So no but he's just not a max player either like that's just odd. That's clear but not a lot of players are players so it's just kind of is what it is for him. So right had some other here takes he said looked the discussion of zion as possible. Best contract if you're allowed to commit offensive fouls every time you go to the basket. Sure you're going to score. A lot of points. He went on to say zone is just big trae young incredibly efficient offense and he gives it all up and more on the defensive end zone is so great. Why can't he dragged his team to the playoffs. I don't agree with all of these. Anti takes but there is some truth to what he's saying not about the offensive fouls necessarily. Because i think we're all going to have to adjust to that defensively. Zaylon is an issue. Chronic trying to construct a lineups around zion. It's not easy defensively and it does take off some of the glimmer of that amazing scoring streak to me. Anyways that you described earlier he went on to say lamelo ball. Got a cursory mentioned in your discussion. He's probably closer to a brand name. Malcolm brogdon than a walmart magic johnson. So can we cool our jets on him until he started finishing games consistently. I mean anytime. Someone tries to say that lamelo should be compared to magic johnson. You know i'm going to bring up on this show. What did you think of that heater. It's a good take right. I don't even really know what it means. i've i've read that sentence multiple times but now lamelo i feel like we should've maybe talked about lamelo a little bit more like he's i think we did but like he's on a really great. I mean it's rookie. Scale contract and he is the best rookie. So that's terrific value. there's really it's not that complicated But i i. I'm not really too deep into criticizing lamelo. 'cause he's what does he like. Nineteen and the expectations were so wonky coming into the season. And i think he's blown all of them out of the water Easily the honeymoon period. So don't rain on the parade. I agree with you there..

I think he's going to be really solid in. Show gradual demonstrate growth for the next three or four years. It's it's more of their stars how much you have to pay them and our other guys gonna want to go play with them that You know to me potentially dips their their future. But i love the optimism from you as always your signature trait are. Let's get into some of the reactions. Michael to our best and worst contract conversation from last week you'll remember that we had a guy named sean right in. He describes himself as a canadian boston. Celtics fan who is currently doing a phd economics. He gave us a lot of background about a model that he created to determine player earnings versus encore performance. He looked at things like age. Shooting percentage wind shares plus minus rebound steals blocks. All of it basically everything he could get from basketball reference to make his model and he told us that the most overvalued players this season were blake griffin otto. Porter john wall. Stephen adams kevin love and kemba walker number of those players. We did mention in our conversation. And he said the most undervalued luka doncic who added number one trae young carmelo anthony. Donovan mitchell bam adebayo and shea eulogise alexander so some interesting names that we hadn't talked about. We didn't mention stephen adams. I think that's one that probably needs to be in this conversation. Especially because of the years added to his extension. We didn't mention otto porter which is completely appropriate because everyone always forgets him all the time. In all conversations trae young being undervalued was interesting to me michael media and bring up trae young. Did we know. And i mean he was on my list. I you know. I had a lot of players. But he just kind of fell into the same category as luca so i didn't even feel like it was worth mentioning him but he's absolutely i mean there's no question for sure and then carmelo was an interesting one too because he's kind of in that. Nicolas batum category. Where like you know. You're getting him on the bargain-basement veteran veteran contract do we overlooked we snub mellow. I don't know if i mean like isn't mellow just kind of getting the contract that he's he deserves like that's just i haven't like dovan too deep into the season that he's had been watching them play like i mean he's comes off the bench she He had to moonlight as a backup. Five for a little while and that didn't go so well and they have one of the worst defenses in nba history. So yeah i just feel like carmelo is kind of. He's not terrible. He's not changing their season in a positive way in any like super dramatic any super dramatic degree. But yeah i just feel like he's kind of getting paid with. Should i would say that. He's over performed the minimum. But you know part of this thing is like well lots and lots of guys get the minimum and most minimum players. Don't have any impact whatsoever. Mellow certainly had more than that. He's giving them some in key moments but they're also not asking the world of him. I'm not going to campaign and say oh he should have been making the mid level this year. But it's interesting that the model said. Hey you know. Carmelo is giving them a little bit more than you would expect. It's easy just to overlook those minimum guys because most of them aren't giving you minutes and he's had to play a lot for portland..

"I love mikhail bridges one of my favorite players in the entire league. He's just not that's just not his type of matchup like he's really. I think he's stronger than he looks. But he's not strong enough to obviously bang with like labron in the post. That's just not what he's going to do he's going to chase guards around and he's going to caress ball handlers. Ninety four feet you kind of need to steal miles bridges upper body and just attach it to mikhail bridges his body. If you want to match up with lebron right. That's like a perfect basketball player that you just described wish. That was a real person. It'd probably is it's probably lebron. We'll get to work on it. But that's the thing for me. And i mean that that kind of extends to some other teams like. I also have that concern still a little bit with the utah jazz and rice. O.'neil is kind of their stopper. I don't know if he's big enough to to to handle those guys It's going to be a group effort. And you know adding torrey craig. I think was really nice edition. And he hit some open threes last night. Which is if he's going to hit threes. Like i mean. I don't even know how many minutes he's gonna play but he's gonna play a lot and he's going to be really impactful for them in the postseason and give them a lot more options but But yeah you're just asking a lot of jae crowder And i don't know. I just don't that's like the big concern for me if i had one with this team. Because as good as their offense is you know they take a lot of mid range shots They're very accurate from the midrange. And that's wonderful but defense is kind of what's carrying them through the regular season. I would say a little bit more than their offense which is which is very good and if they can't get stops consistently in the postseason it could be. It could be a pretty disappointing run for them. So that's the. That's the big thing for me when i look at this team. Are they totally fair to say if it's two seven laker sons The lakers are going to be favored. And that could actually be a quick series and the lakers favor. And i think some suns fans would say oh well don't disrespect our regular season consistency and everything else. Is this really about kind of pudding what they've done into context. They've had health and availability compared to a lot of other teams in the west and that has fueled they're consistent play and it starts with chris. Paul i mean he's been You know very very durable night out there making a big impact. But it's not just him of there guys have Have played a lot of games in a lot of minutes. And that's really helped him stay steady so i think that's kind of number one Know they're going to have an advantage in the standings and and other statistics just because of that continuity factor that not everybody has enjoyed during this season do inexperienced is gonna wind up making them kind of a bigger target for upset picks. I would look back at the denver nuggets a first year. They made the playoffs. I believe they beat the spurs in seven games in the first round. That was another team where people kind of circled them and say. Hey look they've never been there before. Do you really trust these guys. What are you gonna get from jamal. Murray and so. I think if you circle that example and say hey look i mean..

"In my opinion now overall big picture it's fun to be able to dissect these little nitpicks about the phoenix suns. Because the conversation around the sun for the last ten years has been they don't matter ownership is incredibly questionable. The front office is just makes nothing but terrible decisions. They're completely off the radar. They're not even someone that we have to kind of pay respect to and they're absolutely in a situation right now as the miller pointed out where it's time to talk about them and it's time to dig into like potentially. How far can this team go in the playoffs. You look at their point differential. It backs up the idea that their their regular season record is not a flu. They're very well balanced on both offense and defense. They are much improved in clutch situations compared to last year in large part. Because chris paul. has come and really helped. Organize them in those moments but also because they've got lineups that are very well balanced. That don't really have a lot of weak links. There is a lot to like about this phoenix team. There's no way around it. And yet i still see some questions and i'm curious i'm going to list a couple them and you tell me which ones are real concerns in which ones are. Just you know online idiot narratives. How's that sound michael. It's ounce great. I hope that the phoenix suns fans who listen to this show didn't turn it off when we kicked off this conversation by criticizing booker. Well you criticize him. I was supporting him was criticized. You gotta do better than that. Jumper michael come. We say this all the time about these guys these situations right game on the line. You've got work a little bit harder than the step back three. Just bail the defense out. I mean you see the giant sigh of relief from donovan. Mitchell after that shot goes up. That's a red flag warning. Sign that you've got to do better It was against the best defense in the nba. Two we gotta give always give credit to who the opponent is. When you're when you're being critical of your chris. Paul had no problem dyson them up. Though i mean he was he was playing great last night. My first concern for you will actually be chris paul because clearly. You don't want me to pick devin booker Chris has a tendency to do this. In regular seasons right houston greatest regular season. They ever had with chris. paul you go to oklahoma city biggest cheever in the entire league. You look at phoenix this year..

How are they going to run the offense. They did tend to kind of trend towards devon booker at some key moments there. I don't know how i felt about that. Michael i kind of thought the ball should have been in crisis. Hand my crazy a little bit. I know that you have this issue with devon booker and. I don't know where it had originally germinated from But booker's good he's really good and he's one of those few elite scorers in the league..
