Roy is almost impossible to get them to turn it back on. And that felt like the lakers had they felt like we got this game in hand and they got caught. They got caught last night. And i do not think. It's an indictment of the lakers. But i do think it shows the level of fight that the warriors have. And i will also say i would pay. I mean if there was like hell we subscribe to everything.

St paul george excel at the level that he is the season with the clippers end but we did see it two years ago with okay see when he was third and mvp voting and zone better players in the game Ultimately with paul. George like you said it's gonna come down to postseason production and what level he is when that time comes. But i will say this. The clippers. And i think this has played into paul george having a career best season there ball movement has been better. The ball moves around the court. You know more crisp than it hat than did last season and i'm impressed with some of the possessions that they've had with finding great open shots or or laying good degrade basketball and that is something that it will stick. Paul george not gonna shoot over fifty percent. The rest of the season is just an impossible as impossible but highly unlikely But the ball movement. That seems to be something that is here to stay. And that's encouraging for me with watching the clippers considering how stagnant they got at times last season with that first year with the groups are i'm i'm encouraged by the clippers are defending to get back to what it was a get. Get better on that. And i think they will But the ball movement. Paul george you know coming back with a vengeance. It's been fun to watch. This episode is brought to you by mountain dew.

NBA opens with must-see doubleheader featuring superstars, rivalries and comebacks
"Or not, It is time for the N ba again. It's only been a little more than two months since LeBron James in the L. A Lakers won last season's title and now New season is starting tonight. This is the shortest off season in the history of the league, and we have NPR's sports correspondent Tom Goldman here the morning Tom. Hi, David. So few the NBA. Why rush into another season? Good question, and I'll give you a couple of reasons. Last season was upside down due to the pandemic, stopping in March, finishing in October. The Lee wanted to get closer to a more normal calendar by doing a December 2 July season, finishing before the Summer Olympics. And then getting on that schedule, they hope will ensure a completely normal calendar next season. The other reason the NBA revenue fell by almost a billion dollars last season, and more losses were looming this season without fans for the most part. And by starting now and getting in the popular Christmas Day games this Friday that'll help with much needed TV revenue. I have to ask you this, though I mean the category of it. It's not broken. Don't fix it. Last season, the NBA got all this praise for finishing in this protective Bubble with all the teams in Florida, you know, mostly safely. It seemed to work. Why wouldn't the league do that again? Yeah, absolutely. Was this success? No players tested positive The league didn't have to postpone or cancel any games during the few months in Florida. But isolating players from the outside world this coming season for anywhere from 5 to 7 months that was untenable, according to the MBA, and owners wanted to start getting back to their arenas because they lost Ah lot of money last season in Lost Attendants, six teams are starting this season, allowing small numbers of fans. The league is hoping with rollout of vaccines. Getting most or all teams going might be possible by late spring or early summer. I mean, a vaccine for everyone is months away. So isn't this a risk of the MBA? Well, sure, yeah. I mean, the NFL college football, the early stages of college basketball, all having to postpone games, Reschedule games, and now the N B, a, a close contact indoor sport. Teams playing several games each week traveling a lot, so it is a risk. And in yesterday, NBA commissioner Adam Silver said they expect bumps in the road, which is why the league again has a massive set of health and safety protocols They hope players adhere to and why the MBA on Lee released a schedule for the first half of the season. Right now they want to stay. Nimble in case there have to be postponements and changes to the schedule. Okay, so they're acknowledging there had to be ready to pivot. Well, let's talk basketball. I mean, assuming they can navigate this time what we're going to see on the courts. Oh, man, So much great basketball. So many young emerging stars so little time to talk about. Luca Don Church. Devin Booker, Jamal Murray, Donovan Mitchell. John Marantz. Stop me, David. There are so many, but tonight's openers. We celebrate really good old guys. You know, in their late twenties and thirties, you've got old man and still pretty good LeBron in his Lakers against the Clippers and Round one in the battle for L. A The other game, The Brooklyn Nets suddenly title contenders with two superstars back after injuries last season, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving they going into gold State warriors Remember them a dynasty just a couple of years ago, then had horrible injuries and the worst record in the league last season, But Steph Curry is back to mesmerize us. So tonight of funds start to a season that MBA fans hope can last. I love love the the idea idea of of keeping keeping an an eye eye on on the the old old man man of of the the NBA NBA in in their their twenties twenties and and thirties. thirties. Tom, Tom, Thank Thank you you so so much. much. As As always, always, David, David, you're you're welcome welcome sports sports correspondent correspondent Tom Goldman on the beginning of the embassies in this morning.

No, Kendall. That was Kendall. I can't. I know it's hard there all day. And they all they're sisters. They all you know. Look like each other. Except for Chloe. In various urgency, sir, I'm sure they do. Right. We all want to look like him. You could make that happen. I get that going. So Ah, she is that she threw herself a huge party. Well, huge by Covad standards anyway, it's about at least four times what the recommended Like if you must, isn't it 25? Like a complete if you must. Let's limited to 25 people and very famous name said that I will throw the mascot. I mean, look, they supposedly all had masks on. They all had to get covert test ahead of time. I'm sure that's all. I'm sure they were very strict about it. She had Justin and Haley Bieber. Didn't Justin and Haley get I can never remember who's had it and who hasn't. But I'm sure these people already have. So you got your Justin? You're Haley Bieber. You got the weekend? Jaden Smith, Kim and Kanye Kylie Jenner. Travis got Paris Hilton Cuervo Dodge a cat. Kendall's boyfriend, Devin Booker of the Phoenix Suns. Most these people are probably just neighbors, right? I mean, look, they I don't know where this was, but they call it a rooftop party. So this could have been anywhere. Finn. Okay? You know what I mean so that she could have rented out the top of the hotel's could have in Vegas. They're not, you know. I don't see. Ah, sorry, West Hollywood so not at her house. Oh, boy, that is some ass cheek. Who's that? That was a candle in the barbed wire costume. All right? Yes, She's the only one without a giant heinie. Maybe it is giant. It just doesn't look like it by comparison, because she's a model and modeling agencies like you can't have a giant honey. I mean, she's pulling Pam Anderson so hard there. It's It's incredible. She's It's unbelievable that yeah, scrolling zoom in on that. Incredible. Ah, even Pam Anderson like you. Time is money. Good for her. Yeah, I know.

It's not just the people who attend this party. It's the people who are working the party. You know you're okay. Maybe you do trust every single one of your friends and they've been in quarantine and blah, blah, blah. You can't say that about the wait, staff. You can't say that about the people who are, you know, add junks to this party, the support staff. So check the coat. Check guy. Sure, he's all Aziz hanging up your coat. You know, not good. So if it matters to you, the staff and all the guests had to take a rapid Covad test in order to be allowed in. So luckily, she had access to 200 rapid covert test. Isn't that nice? How bizarre against time and money thing? All things are possible with time and money. Yeah. Mostly money, though. But personally with time and money, I wouldn't waste it on that. Whatever she's doing now.
Houston Rockets fail to stave-off elimination in loss to the Los Angeles Lakers
"So, there's a whole list of ways to For a whole host of the culprits here. Right IF PEOPLE WANNA start scapegoating or pointing fingers at the reason for the rockets. Quick Demise. This postseason I might point to James Harden just say they're fundamentally flawed because of the the style that he plays and how how hardened centric they are that I will always key on that. I but there is the Russ Hardin experiment. There's small ball itself. There's the catch all analytics failed that there's there's the camp out there who wanted to blame analytics or Darrell Blame Mike Dan Tony. It's about maybe it's about his system although I don't think they were running what Mike is usually known for. Is there one thing that stands out to you? That was that the primary culprit for why they failed this particular postseason? Well I'll answer that two ways first and foremost is that it's very hard to win an NBA championship especially coming out of the Western conference I think people forget that think how you have to beat our. You know now with Lebron James Who's arguably the best player in the League one of the best of all time he is here, Wilde Leonard whose I believe has the best. Regular season win percentage in the NBA history who may be on the verge of leading his third different team to an NBA championship is the best player he's out here and the no. Forget the team in the bay that went to the finals five years in a row they're going to be back next year and how are those are the guys you have to just to get To the NBA finals out of the West. So I think in our winner, take all society it's easy to forget that as I mentioned, I think the rockets have been arguably the second best team in the NBA over the last four five years So they are close however to answer your question more directly. The biggest concern I have like I said is on the biggest stage look. Who sometimes as an executive coach or player, and sometimes it's not that's what happened to him a few years ago in game seven when they missed twenty seven consecutive threes or whatever it was that's part of the deal that way this thing goes the way it shouldn't go. Howard. If you'RE GONNA WANNA win anything at a high level is you always have to try you always have to compete. You always have to give your best effort. Now can Houston do that? Can they answer those questions that remains to be seen and unfortunately were they new head coach coming in? I think to some extent Howard whenever next season starts it doesn't really matter what they. Do in the regular season you and I both think the Houston Rockets as you know currently constructed or very likely to be playoff team again, the western conference but the questions are going to start again when they get to the playoffs and frankly I don't think they'll be able to answer those questions until the playoffs are ending as far as did they show up and compete every night because we have two examples in the last four years where they haven't done that in the big stage and has a lot of people myself included scratching their head as far as you know why James Harden, his teammates didn't even try to rise to the occasion. Yeah it's. You lay it out correctly or I would agree with the way you laid out, which is as you start looking forward. Immediately you have to think about. All right. Well, who who are we chasing and if we assume everything stays static that Lebron Anthony Davis are still together that Paul, George is still together. The nuggets aren't going anywhere. So there's a three teams at the top. Already, the warriors could very easily and should jump back into the top four. Even Gotten to Utah or the rising mavericks or anything else yet, and at best the rockets are V before we've even gotten through this season much less the off season and getting next. Look ahead like do we know how do we? How do you forecast them's anything better than that, and that's fine. If you're young team on the rise, if you're the mavericks and you look out an next year source, maybe somewhere in the four, five, six range. That's fine. You're young team on the rise you're you're you're building as you go the rockets are you know you're built around two stars in their early thirties? And if you're if you're not going forward, then you're going backward the you're sliding and I don't know that the flexibility is there to to really rebuild around those two guys on the fly here. So I don't know whether assuming darryl still in the job because there's been doubts about that too. But whatever. Whatever the Front Office does this off-season I I do not envy especially in an Arrow or in a year with potentially a shrinking cap with the little or two zero flexibility I don't I just don't know where they go from here unless you go and start entertaining the extremes and that's trading the stars and that that might be even harder. So maybe they have no choice but to just stay on the path, try to find some bargains and hope for the best I
"devin booker" Discussed on Warriors Off-Court
"He does a lot of people don't think he has. super high ceiling He they see him more as a role guy at the next level. The warriors think that he is above average defender. WHO's very efficient offensively, who comes from winning program Nova Kinda has that same type of pedigree aired Pasco had come in for a one Helpful, and they think he has a highest a lot of other people do. So I don't think they're gonNA. He's the top I pick on him but. Down situation where they traded down, you know like the way lottery or mid first round. I would think it would be for him. You know 'cause they, they probably feel confident that they could get him in that ranch in terms. Other I mean it's not going to change like if it will fast forward when they drop actually happened. But if you had to put them money today literally today and let's make it something that matters to rent payment. If you had been a rent payment today, do you think the warriors will use whatever pick they end up with in the first round or will they traded? I? MEAN TRADING DOWN I? Do think that they're gonNA end up using it I've been saying that for a while now just because. I'm not confident that they're gonNA get an offer. Like. For the for the nick and maybe. Carrying it with the TV that traded player exception. That's GONNA. Be Enticing Enough I. Think it would need to be. knock your socks off type offer because they are legitimately really high on. Several guys, I? Think. They're going to have a good shot at getting in the. They they like Anthony. Edwards they really like any out. Of Israel. They're like tires. Halliburton. At Iowa state. I think that they're going to be able to get at least one of those guys. No matter regardless of whether, they're drafting number one or number five. So I, I think they're gonNA hold onto the pick and I think they're going to end up using the TV on its own to get someone But that's that's just my hunch based on conversations I've had with people on the front. Office a couple of things about their their draft board, and I, know I've said this a million times, they're not super high lamelo ball not. Super High James Watson A lot of people have got so many questions about are they going to draft teams, Wiseman? They needed center. especially. Workout video. If I guess whoever we're regardless of whether picking top five, they're gonNA take. You asked me to wear just any. However And then there's a couple other possibilities like they could take highs occur You know they could take You know. Really. Those are the main guys I'm here. I don't know. So that's that's. The basic takeaway by understanding of their their draft board and how it's coming together. We've had a couple of college Draft Scouts on the last few months, and you didn't leave out one name that we've heard. I'm hearing the decades since you are the only place, I am connor as long as they don't draft somebody like, Joe, Smith or social clip. I've on Boardman and we said this a few months ago you and I did. Did a lot of fun It was the warriors draft foibles in the past. He went through some of the worst draft picks of all time, and if I'm remembering it right, we ended on this really optimistic note and the idea was for decades man, you couldn't trust the wears front office. There was a star you were. They wouldn't find him, and now you don't shoe's on the other foot..

"devin booker" Discussed on Big Time Basketball
"I think that's a little bit different than what Kobe did against high school competition but for me that stands out at fifteen to twenty years scouting career. He was the guy that you said like you know with the size length. He was very skinny and still is relatively thin but with his scoring ability. You just saw transcendent player and I thought it was obvious he should have been. Your Greg. Oden thing was not medical. It was just player to player like I forget the medical. Let's say the medical came across flying colors. You never thought that Greg Oden had anything wrong with him and it was still going to be Durant for you yeah. I wrote the letter to Danny's before we had the medical opinion from the Celtics team doctors and from the experts. Obviously Odin had some medical issues that we were aware. We're of at Ohio state and prior to that but more it was just talent scout. I mean if they were the same medically whether that was completely healthy or moderator. They're both banged up. The same thought durant was a better player. I thought it was pretty clear. I still have that letter somewhere. Knowing as you probably doesn't have it but I I still have it. And if he asked me that story I think he would confirm that is true. And it's getting. Let's get into depth Booker Devin Booker. So I WANNA compare to Kobe in a sense it devon booker relentless worker that. Kobe is watching Gotcha game and he doesn't in my opinion have any offensive weaknesses. I can get on him about winning. And all these other things but fundamentally he's unbelievable you could go right go left pull up. Is He. A relentless worker liked the legend of Kobe Bryant. Kobe Bryant is Devon Booker's basketball idol. He's a role model. And I think if you ask Devon who had the biggest influence on his NBA career and last night surpassing the seven thousand point. Mark is the fourth youngest player in NBA history do that. He's actually ahead of Kobe. Bryant's pace at this at the same age which is remarkable. I'm trailing only Lebron James Kevin Durant Carmelo Anthony but if you ask Devon who was basketball skip ball role models are I think he probably mentioned two guys one would be Kobe. And then one would be dad. Melvin Booker who played in the NBA and then had a long successful career overseas. But yet answer your question scale L. Devon's a tremendous worker and he always has been. I think his father instilled that from when when Devon was in high school. He moved from Michigan to Mississippi. His father retired from playing. I think in large part to help devon develop his career and worked out early in the morning and and tell stories about working out or running on the beach. You're really learning a different front level of work and discipline in his teenage years than he was accustomed to and I think that helped us progression because you guys do. We talked a little bit about the high school recruiting rankings and the hype around Kobe. Hype around Devon Book if you go back and look at the rankings. I mean He. He was a McDonald's all American he was a relatively high rated player. But I'm talking about top twenty top fifty. He wasn't top ten ninety five guy in his class so he's really developed tremendously. I'd be lying if I said we thought I. I thought he had this kind of impact this early on in his career. I mean any anytime. You're up there with legends of the game at twenty three years old and setting scoring records as as late lottery. Pick that that's a That's a testament to him in the work. Put in so happy for them proud of them and yet answer. Questions Gilmore directly. He he is coping. I mean is work ethic is moves. I talked talk a little bit on the show on Sunday about what it meant to Devon to get. Kobe signed shoes after the last game. They played here in Phoenix. The last time the Denko played against each other on the court in two thousand sixteen. Kobe wrote a book be legendary on the shoes. And game the Devon. I think he also signed a game program from that night. And just the impact that had on Devon and some of the individual workout sessions. They had the mentorship that Kobe provided to a lot of young players but Devon in particular really made an impact on Devon. And I think that's part of the reason that he was so emotional the last couple of days just watching Devon I've been on TV and the and the two games the suns played. And I think part of the reason honestly knowing Devon's mentality that he went up and went out and tore up the mavericks last night for sons blog. Went and Devin have thirty plus points. Because that's what he does. He got that competitive drive. I'm not saying he is Kobe but he does have some of that. Mindset mentality to attack and leave all the distractions outside the lines in infocus your your energy and focus your efforts when you're on the basketball court got to be honest. I mean I I you know I sort of struggled with where to place Devon for the first few two years insecure. Because it's like all right. Yeah I know he's put these numbers but there's the winds are really coming along with it. I know that's an part of just like growing up in the league and being young but I mean like I couldn't be further away away from what I used to be. The Guy is absolutely legit. I don't think that you know the record doesn't necessarily you know not that it doesn't matter but it's like I see the talent there now and I see like this guy put him up there with any of the young guards in the League for sure. I think it is funny now because the the knock has always been like. Why hasn't why haven't you know why hasn't been one more games at this guy but you know he's never even been an all star Dr? I haven't personally in. We'll find out the oil reserves tomorrow. I have him as an all star this year I think he's totally deserving of it Numbers wise and son's name is much better this year even if they are in the playoffs playoffs currently right now. But it's it's funny. There's this double standard trae. Young is a starter right now from the east and I know it's an east west things a little bit different more talent in the West but trae young as a starter on a terrible team and people seem to be okay with that. But they've always knock Devon Booker for saying how the campaign all-star doesn't win enough games. I just I find a double standard very strange now so for me. I think Devon Booker occur should one hundred percent being all star. This year. Right I'm sure you feel the same way I do. And let me make his case. In case Ernie coaches or assistant coaches who haven't voted yet look at the sons numbers there on on court off court numbers when he's on the court. They're elite offensively. When he's obstacle I think offensive rating would be worse than any team in the league? And so you know I. It's hard to say over a forty or fifty game sample that that's a coincidence. Or there's not a reason for it now. Some of that is due the absence of the Android as well who missed twenty twenty five games with the drug suspension and then five games with a sprained ankle but look at Devon's efficiency is really trimmed a lot of the fat from his game. He doesn't take bad shots anymore. He he doesn't four shots he's extremely efficient. And just about every scenario whether it's catching shoot for mid range getting to the free throw line limiting turnovers. He's a dynamic anemic offensive player. And you made a great point about trae young. I think the sons of one almost twice as many games as the hawks have in the western conference. Devon's the biggest biggest reason for that. So look the West loaded. There's a lot of talent in depth especially in the back court but I think it'd be a shame if Devon doesn't make the all star team this year he deserves it and I guess we'll we'll find out tomorrow night if if made it but obviously I hope he does. It'd be a great thing for him especially with the workings put in and I mean a lot of the franchises. Well I want to ask you about Khris Middleton. I'm going to do list. I think later. I haven't fully finished list yet so I'm kind of like I'm still like debating between guys in my top. Five Chris Middleton drops fifty one points last night in a Bucks Win Without Janas. I think he's one of the most underrated if not the most underrated player. I'll do that list as I mentioned later. The Guy He's going to be an all-star it should be an all star are and we and we continue to sort of disrespect. I think the buck supporting cast by not talking about them and Chris. Milton is at the top of that list. I know it was against the wizards But what did you make a militants performance last night Ryan and like is he a. We've always had the question you know. Can you be good enough to be a two hundred championship level team. I think yes. If you're one is you. God is because you're honest is that great what do you make. Chris Middleton is like is he is he the most underrated player in the league. Right now certainly up there Cerruti in watching that game last night it was ridiculous what they did without Jaanus for those who didn't see it. They scored eight points in the first half which is one of the highest first-half points in NBA history. One hundred fifty one for of the game in Middleton individually at fifty one points so I think he's having his best year. I mean if you look at his numbers as far as the efficiency in particular I know is the second option in Milwaukee but one of the things that really stood out to me looking at the numbers last night guys after the game was that down US has missed four games this year. The bucks are four and in those games and they've won every game that genesis missed all four games by double digits. So I think you have to give credit somewhere. That's not a coincidence. That's not a fluke. It's easy for us to say John. It's all Jaanus and he's going to win the MVP Again and they're going to have the best record in the League again this year but Chris Middleton's a big reason for that and I think people are kind of sleeping on the books talent and depth beyond Janas and to me that starts with Middleton and who should almost certainly be names and deserving of being named to another all star team tomorrow night all right. Let's put it to the fire then there. Would you pick him over. Ver- Is there ten forwards in Eastern Conference. That you feel would be a better fit for the bucks for a championship run. Well let's our names. I'll go through some of the better..
