"So I think this bodes well for the Miami Heat if the playoffs started according to the schedule or according to the standings I should say the heat would play the Pacers so the heater in a nice little groove. And let's say maybe you know. They faced the bucks in the second round. Maybe Yannis isn't quite healthy. I don't know maybe they're maybe they're great. But that's the best chance of beating. The Milwaukee Bucks team is having this break because the bucks her steamrolling everybody they undoubtedly they should be in the NBA finals. But if there's something to throw them off it could be this. Unprecedented Hiatus here and the jazz would be an interesting dynamic to see after the fallout of Rudy. Gobert being you know in terms of the sort of looking to be patient zero being labeled that and then maybe being reckless in the locker room. We heard from Welsh and transmitting the virus to possibly Donovan. Mitchell you never really know where Donovan Mitchell. Also the point and he seemed upset always sort of trying to put that in the past he got it from Rudy. Yeah and you wonder how that would play out if this team Here we go play offs. You know. It's not just matthew said tasks it's it is the the relationships between these guys and playing hard for each other and if if that's a fractured at all because of this it's possible but maybe they bonds them somehow is the flip side of it so hopefully God. Hopefully we do get some of course summer basketball playoffs at the least later on. Yeah but it's literally going to be at the very least two months and could be lager. Yeah and so start thinking about. How long is the summer break for these guys? Do they come back in September looking looking sharp? Look tight looking sharp. Uh-huh takes time so I think there's GonNa be some ugliness out there no matter when they come back the next question here I know darks. I'm a big fan from London. England my friends and I participate in a very serious highly competitive fantasy basketball league shout out to the bliss congrats. Both you got your shadow. This year I had the first pick in the draft which was revealed thirty minutes before the draft went live. It was the most anxiety inducing thirty minutes of my life and I picked. Anthony Davis no regrets attack. My questions are do darks team. Competing Fancy Basketball League. And who would you first pick for the next season be cheers? That's from Jack. Thanks for the email Jack. You said. Good pick skates yeah. I would go Yannis in a heartbeat over a de- it all depends what you're you're playing. What Fantasy League? You're playing. What categories are using? It's a big part of it. Got Into your categories. Still like Hardin in like a Yahoo. Setting is ridiculous. He's ridiculously talented fantasy basketball player. He's like obviously bad turnovers. Inaugurate and field goal percentage. But with just how many free throws he gets how many threes he takes and of course the scoring and contributes as dismantling rebounds. And like. He's really really good Davis. It's still very solid saw. He's happy with his number one pick has he. I don't know where we're Anthony Davis ranks but now Yannis Yannis obviously scores more. Better percentage better rebounds. Yeah better assists. No He's Oh I'm sure he honest isn't a has to be an elite elite fantasy basketball player but Davis also defensively huge numbers of better than you and holds its own and all those other categories to say turns the ball over less another guy I would consider and you sort of mentioned depending on what the parameters league is is Luca I mean Lucas. Basically averaging nearly a thirty point triple double decent percentages. Apart from three point. Reggie's he's not that's not a strength but he's also able to potentially play four positions. You know point guard shooting guard. Small even powerful and depending on how he's listed in your leaks that gives you a little bit more variation Mignon us and Anthony Davis. I guess you know forward for us. I think he could play. He qualify for anything else. Davis Forward Center. I guess but But just because Lucas the way that he's listed I mean he he. I mean he shouldn't be listed as a forward but he can be you know. Sometimes he sometimes is there so that might be what you want and again. He's going to have the ball in his hands and you think he's numbers are going to be fairly fairly solid there in in Dallas. So you know he'd he'd be pretty hard. Pick mentioned nobody is playing fantasy basketball. Still Right of the group. Yeah you're not playing right. Nah No chemist place but I'll never know now. I just want good to know I mean we. We've done before we all of us play. Pretty Fairly Competitive Fuzzy basketball. Obviously the friends everybody getting into it for years upon years and years and I gave it up a couple of years ago. Don't Miss It. I don't say because it is. You really really have to be on it every single night and you gotta be working. The waiver wire every single night. And you're trying to make sure it's like it's not as good football. Is this the honest truth? Because football's more of like. Let's put in a good couple of hours here. We'll set the team and we'll go from there and enjoy our weekend following the guys and you just want to be good at it. You can't do that with the NBA. You gotta be making those little moves around the fringes all the time. Yeah the draft is last. That's the most fun picking your team on draft night. But if you want to win you gotta be on top of it so I just gave it up because we're already so far into this thing it's like I don't need that on my plate as well. Might Migrate Plate. So nobody's playing it here anymore. Maybe it's just a sign of our age as well. I don't know I. I dropped football as well the past season we had a lot of todd. Gurley drama early go on? It was a keeper League in Justin. Didn't set his keepers right so when Todd Gurley came up. He's elected todd. Gurley off somebody else's team. Despite the fact he was supposed to be a keeper jeopardize the whole season. Everybody was mad John. Garrett was fear he s such ended the Jag. But who would you guys pick with the number one pack if you got it next season alright? So let's say it starts. It starts at Christmas. Would just go go go. Yannis because of a slight injury concerns with. Adp although that's overblown. That's not its reputation. Thing with. Anthony Davis plays more games and so I would take him although looks like they're one two rankings. Those two yeah eighty is I mean Karl Anthony. Towns is an awesome fantasy basketball player too. But you also have the risk of injury though. He was an iron man there for the first couple of years. He's a he's a great fancy basketball player. I mean you may have opinions on how he plays the actual NBA. And what he gives you or doesn't give you on one end of the floor but it doesn't really matter at times of Fancy Ball. Who Do you go Zion on takings? Hey I mean guys like Trae Young. They gotta be sure. I'm just assuming I'm going to be in a keeper league. I'M GONNA WANNA have them. For All year senator played keep relief. I can't commit. It's fun and girly episode girly great player all right so good luck there to Jack in your fantasy basketball leagues. Sounds like you guys got a great lead. Go in their skipper going next one. Hey Jamal Marino dunks counted getting very creative with these just wanted to ask a hall of Fame Related Question I noticed the wwe loves to induct tag teams or stables into their hall of fame with Ric Flair. Being a future. Three Time Hall of Famer once evolution gets inducted in the next few years there are hall of fame stable. I didn't know that I mean I don't. I don't know a ton about evolution the stable but I I mean I guess two thousand four hundred twenty fourteen. I have no idea. Wwe WWF so he's in Ric flair and then he's in a shoe as soon as the four horsemen right. Yeah you'd have to think okay so I guess maybe he's going to go in with evolution to well three time hall of Famer Anyway. What this in mind should the Naismith Basketball Hall of fame? Consider putting in teams or teammates. If so who do you consider as good candidates I would say the bad boys Pistons or perhaps the Spurs big three thanks. That's from Austin Fun. Question all the way from Manila. Shut up to the Philippines. Let it on. The map are no crew in the Philippines. Replicas Horror D- So yeah what do you think? This idea teams teammates. I love the idea of teams. Teammates is a little wishy washy for me actually like teammates more but okay well I think The Oh four. Piston should get a team that didn't have any hall of Famers at this point good thing. They didn't draft Carmelo. Anthony but Darko is not in the hall of fame. Deep down deep down on the international not a single hall of fame player there yet Ben Wallace yet. Yeah Yeah Betty at this wall billups down the line maybe but okay so yeah. He may seem. It's just wishy-washy dinner it's like going to be in Michael and Scotty go to be in their main event teammate. Yeah but I was. I liked the idea of like Kevin. Peyton to me or forever linked just like like Shackleton. Kobe no doubt and MGM PIP. Dirk Nash to some extent to. It's like I just love the Combo they don't make it Durkan Nash. They weren't together very long and they didn't win and had most of their success away from each anything. I don't think there would be a hall of fame. Duo either file so this tag team has to win a title or two. I guess that's an easier Stockton Malone should get in if you're having teammates but they obviously never one but they played together for eighteen years other teams. Then that you'd like to induct. Well the worry is dynasty. I mean five years in a row making the finals or Stephan. Klay maybe or Steph clay and draymond maybe just 'cause already end yeah Rick flair already in the Dream Team. What interest. Yeah. What are the other globetrotters? The first team I basketball team nineteen sixties. Olympic team is an yeah and Tennessee. A and I from nineteen fifty seven and nineteen fifty nine so non. Nba teams all all non MBA team site indeed or USA Lee What about Lebron wait? Sure four years. They're both going to be in any way. That's the weird part you're right..
"dirk nash" Discussed on Don't Worry About The Government
"Gentlemen. Hello again. And welcome back to don't worry about the government's Monday. Ms christova, Bruno I am joined onto day show by Brian Halverson. Hello, brian. How're you doing dude? Okay. On my son little bit different than I have been. I've sounded before when we recorded who getting over a respiratory issue. You sounded wistful. I thought that you have a little case of Dirk Itis. It's here a Dallas greater baths America have right now. I grew up in Dallas. And as as you are still in Dallas, Chris, and I I can remember quite a few of very fun memories going to maverick's games in various shades of of dirt teams throughout the years. Turk. Led teams. My my favorite was the Dirk Nash years. But we we don't need to you know, we don't need to get into that too much. But I I'm really it did give me pause at like exactly how long this career was with respect to how long I've been watching Mavericks basketball. And like I remember the pre Dirk years in a very vague memory. He put this city odd, the bap it put the franchise odd the bap-. I mean, obviously nationals great and we've had some other important faces along the way, but this is a Kareem Abdul Jabbar like player who came to Dallas. It's sated Dallas his entire career. Ed. Ed, really help define what basketball meant to this city in of mean, more portly as sid at Tokyo was on the rise in the two thousands. Like they were having their run Dallas always felt like second banana. And it always felt like we might trade Dirk that Dirk my go somewhere else. I mean, the idea that this guy was just here for twenty one season straight. It seems like a foregone conclusion now as you look back on it. But as someone was here along the way there are so many different times. There was talk about trading him, including what where they were talking about trade Dirk for Kobe straight up. It will those folks are actually fairly far along. So he finished off here. Ed, every you know, the other person's retired this week was Dwayne Wade. And you know, I still self salty Bryant after all these years about Wade's March to the free throw. Alive way before there was hard before. James harden, got a elevator or escalators script right to the free throw line every single game. Wade was building that Esclater. My man will I can't blame him for taking the escalator. Once it's a. Road. No, it's on the league to dismantle the squatter. You on that once it's obviously there, I don't blame. Dwayne what running with my bad metaphor, by the way, I shit that. Because the the escalators dot the word I was looking for there. But you stuck with it. I really appreciate that. Assist. Put into basketball terms to both of us to make that bad metaphor really flush out. You know, it's true. That's true. Anything else about Dirk before we move on other than thank you so much Dirk for everything you brought to this city. And I have like such fun memories of when the Mavericks finally won that championship in twenty eleven. Well, it was it was such a sweet release. And I was so happy for him. And it felt so good. It is so good beating the heat the best game that I've ever been to. I've never been to been to just a handful of playoff games, thankfully, but they were really good games. The best game of ever been to was a Mavericks of Suns game win Amari stout. Amar was pre injury. And Nash was there. And it would I believe it was a triple overtime game. And after that it was hard to compare. Anything else to it?.

"He's one of the greatest forwards of all time. I would I would definitely probably have him LeBron bird. I guess he's third unless you count happy forward. Always fit. I mean, Dunkin the Spurs and Dunkin, but that was the mouth forever rival throughout his career one five you can't you can't compare five for one with Duncan of Orlando. Dirk faints position back that is bigger legacy. He won the championship. And that puts them in the top money. But how many guys changed their position? He. And that and that, you know, no, no slice to Akeem. But I think I've seen by virtue of having played college here. And because of what it means in the history of the game for just completely changing what we expect out of out of a four man and just opening up the game. I mean, I think those are just massive massive achieve. So if Duncan counts as a forward, I have LeBron bird Duncan ahead of him. Yeah. And there's a Durant versus Dirk argument. I I would say Durant probably a tad higher because of you know, one MVP for second place finishes to finals VP's. And so I mean, you know, what what is Durant? It dark with crazy f- lettuces yet. You know it. The and and the what if with his career is if Nash doesn't leave in what happens, you know, maybe Nash needed to leave. Maybe Nash needed the the kind of fuck you edge. Maybe he needed the Phoenix Suns staff, and I'm sure we've done that before on the Amsterdam today they both needed to leave to go to. I think that is such a a joke Nash left year. They changed the hand. Check. Will we never got the fee what Dirk Nash would have been in the back or left era? I don't the wolves literally change that off the mass to the sun. Now now now now also with pissed he was furious at the mouth, you know, he felt really, you know, gifts that the Suns offered him sixty million in the MAs wouldn't go higher the thirty six million over four changed his body. He he just became you know, that certainly was a factor too. So it wasn't just all all the rule changes. But I have to think mashing dirt win at least one and maybe two together. Yeah. I would say the over unders one and a half. I I obviously I think they would have been better off staying together. The questions I have is. Did Nash need to go to Phoenix to reach his full potential as a player both from having that edge of having Dallas, basically give up on them, you know, especially when Mark Cuban who's splurging on everybody decides sixty million too rich for his blood that..

"Going to sleep until three o'clock eastern time tomorrow in the trading deadline ends in the NBA because trades are happening all over the place the Sacramento Kings have been busy. They just traded. Justin Jackson and Zach Randolph to the Dallas Mavericks for Harrison Barnes. Harrison Barnes was thinking man, I let the Golden State Warriors. I got this contract. I'm going to be in TAOs. I'm gonna be the guy night even three years later on his way. Kristaps Porzingis is now in town other German, call tartar, I call him. Explain to people that is by the way, that's a shot blocking center freak man. I mean, he he. It'll be okay. No. I mean, he's he's underrated players to me in maybe in basketball. He really is the other talks about Dirk, right, right? The other German is is pretty damn good as well and Harrison Barnes now are shipped out. Donnie, Nelson junior is having a hell of a trade deadline doubt. No doubt Hueco kit. Porzingis to be paired with Luca. This is Dirk Nash two point. Does we talked about when it happened? And now, you free up more money. He's Donnie Nelson junior is having finally Cuban is finally listening to basketball. He's allowing his basketball people the work to do basketball things. Yeah. To do that by Nick styles because apparently he wants to play for every NBA team in his life. He already was traded earlier this week on Sunday. Now, he's part of a three team trade where he goes to the rockets with Wade Baldwin Iman Shumpert from the kings. And he also goes into rockets in a three team deal. Knicks Doukas was traded on Sunday. And he gets traded again on Wednesday. Where will he be tomorrow? Whether he could be the where's WALDO of the NBA by Nick stockists, real quick, Dwayne Phoenix at eight eight eight seven two nine three seven seven six twain. What you got on Freddie and Fitz Simons free. How you doing man? I'm a Nick fan like you. Right. I'm a die hard knick fan. But I think the NBA needs to be scared of Jerry West because what he's doing and how he leases every team in his career as an executive. It's like, you don't know what's going to happen. He may end up with Leonard. And and a D or Kyrie Irving because he's that Jerry West. I mean, you see what he did in in midnight while everyone wants sleeping. I mentioned this earlier who was one of the guys is behind the scenes with Golden State sticking it to his old squaw the Lakers and part of me believes Jerry West still believes he should be with the Lakers. Absolutely. So the logo is now and the other locker room and the other offices at Staples. And be careful because there's no doubt in my mind that he wants to stick it to the Lakers. And right now, he's looking a little better than they are Dwayne the finish is a great word about Jerry West fleecing because that is what he's going to do to you. You're gonna look around say, hey, we're happened to my pants and j hold on. You're looking for these right here. Thank you. Yeah. Exactly. They'd be spanking that spanking that anyway, that's what Jerry West has been able to do. That's why the clippers wanted him desperately it help turn things around. And Doc Rivers could be the benefit of that. When the NBA off season, happens sooner than later, changing gears to football and Bob stoops remember who goes Oklahoma football back in the football game. And where will answer those questions next on ESPN radio ESPN.

We're sitting here if you'd asked us to o'clock in the afternoon when we're sending out emails and texts and we've got all these little articles were reading and put together show and thinking what what's interesting we talk about with the Super Bowl.

I'm using all these food analogies. You can tell right now like you can tell I am. I am. I am hungry. By the way, we do have Rick Carlisle's quotes regarding the porzingas blockbuster. He told one of three point three FM ESPN. Here's a quote, we obviously think porzingas is a great young talent similar in many ways to Dirk, this is a kind of a jerk and Nash type of situation only these guys are taller there. There are other good players in this deal. Hardaway juniors terrific shooter and a proven to guard in this league. Courtney Lee has been a guy that's been out of the rotation in New York because they've been going young and all of that kind of stuff, but he's a guy that can still play the game. Well, he's a good defender and shoots the ball. Well, and trae Burks resurrected his career Dennis Smith has had a really terrific year and a half in terms of growth. I mean, he tops it off last night with a triple double. Well, he's a tremendous young player and New York is such an exciting environment for a guy like him. It'll be a great situation for him.

"dirk nash" Discussed on You're Wrong... And Here's Why
"Shooting percentage from a seven foot power forward Dirksen sure-fire whole Famer who single-handedly was responsible for the term stretch for and eventually stretch five. His thirty one thousand points are good for six all time in NBA history. The guys in front of him Kareem Karl Malone Kobe Michael Jordan and Wilt Chamberlain. But more importantly, and more impressively the seven foot. German is eleventh all time in three pointers, maintenance, gay history in a world we're spreading the court is the most important things in basketball, Dirk, ushered in the new era. We're big guys thought of more than bruisers. In fact, he made some players completely useless. You know, he took away the jobs in of the future Antonio Davis's, Dennis, rodmans, and Charles Oakley. Those guys were stars in their time and useless in a modern day. NBA dark changed the game forever while also turning into one of the more durable stars the league's ever seen. I'm going to say this preface, all of this with Tim Duncan was not considered from my list because he was born in the US territory. There might have been a conversation there, but the tenders in my book, our Akeem and Steve Nash with space left for some of the guys like Jaanus and Joel Embiid and a couple of other players. It literally amazes me that in the last thirty seconds of every one of your arguments you, you continue to throw out my different Trump cards. It's it's unreal. Tim. Duncan was also going to be someone that I would consider, but I had that question. Do you consider him an international player considering from the US Virgin Islands? I personally would. It's not America. It's not the United States and might be territory chore. That's fine. We'll take Tim Duncan out of this, but you mentioned another name in there, and that's Steve Nash. We focus on big men when you compare Kemin Dirk, because they okay. They played the same position differently. Sure. But you have to take Steve Nash into account. This guy transformed the way guards played in the NBA. His passing was unbelievable. His back toback MVP seasons were something that made west coast basketball for people on the east coast must watch TV. Those Phoenix Suns teams that he played on, we're simply outstanding, even though they didn't get it done in the end, you talk about a guy. That's a sure fire hall of Famer, Steve Nash surefire hall of Famer more MVP's than Dirk when it comes to regular season used to be Dirk teammate, which is an interesting bit of trivia for you, and it's amazing that those Mavericks didn't go further back then. But then that kind of brings in the question Dirks ability to win, Dirk success in the playoffs hasn't exactly been stellar one NBA championship and albeit a surprising one over. For that first year of LeBron that dream team scenario that he had in Miami with that break three. Other than that, Dirk has floundered somewhat in the NBA. What does he have? One other finals appearance. It's hard for me to say that the best international player ever is a guy with one title, and I'll make this a rings argument. That's perfectly fine. Akeem has to Nash has zero. So I'd go Hakeem Dirk Nash one-two-three. Okay. And in terms of the Dunkin thing, I will say it's not fair to include him because that is a real Pandora's box because guys like Patrick Ewing were born in Jamaica, Dominique Wilkins this born in France. Kyrie Irving was born in Australia with it's just it's too much in terms of the actual argument here. All I have to say is a seven foot power forward a thirteen time. All star twelve time. All NPA an MVP NBA champion of finals MVP you say that he floundered in the playoffs, but he actually wasn't NBA NBA finals MVP. The list goes on and the true more for special Dirk is can be said like this since coming into the league, Dirk, we've seen countless players touted as the next Eric. None of them have been anything more than a pale imitation of the man..
