NBA Storylines Down the Stretch
"Doris Burke is an NBA analyst for ESPN so doors the All star break is over and NBA. Games are back. We wanted to talk to you. About what surprised you so far this season. And how you see the last couple of months shaping up as we enter the homestretch before the playoffs. Let's start in the East right where there is an unequivocal number. One team in Milwaukee they have the best record in the NBA and they are destroying teams winning by an average margin of victory of more than twelve points per game now of the eleven teams that have had a double digit margin of victory over the course of a season. Eight have gone on to win it. All Doris. Is there something that stands between Milwaukee and the NBA Finals? Yeah this is a great question. So in their eight losses the one thread that is consistent throughout those are teams are averaging sixteen point nine threes and philosophically. Their priority is protect. The paint. First and foremost they are so elite. At that that we have not seen this kind of rim protection in the modern NBA. With the possible exception of Spurs team that had both Tim Duncan and David Robinson but the fact of the matter if a team gets hot and really can create shot opportunities then. I think that they can be beat. The other thing that happens is your and you saw in the All Star game. Jaanus is the first player to go twenty five and eleven back to back all star Games but he was over to note points in the fourth quarter because they did playoff teams. We'll do they set up a wall and they said somebody else is going to beat us so well. No one's really doubting the bucks at this point. I think there is still a lot of skepticism about the number two seed in the east the Toronto Raptors. I mean after losing finals. Mvp Kawhi Leonard. They were not seen as favorites coming into this year yet. They have the same record right now that they had at this point last season doors one hand the raptors have been under five hundred against winning teams but on the other they had a lot of. Are we underestimating them? While I'm definitely giving them punchers chance to get to the Eastern Conference finals and a punchers chance to come out in the past historically particularly when Demar Derozan Kyle lowry. Were on the team together. What we knew was they understood how to win in the regular season but they're always seemed to be this level of doubt in their minds when the calendar turn to April but the fact of the matter is. They changed that a year ago with championship. There is a different feel a different presents a different countenance about the entire group and yes unequivocally the record versus plus five hundred versus minus five hundred is concerning but let's remember that their top six guys including Serge Ibaka. Who's having the Best Year of his career? Kyle lowry Markelle Saul Fred Van Bleed. Norman Powell Pascal them. All six of those guys have missed at least ten games so I don't know that we have the clearest picture the other thing working in their favors they have one of the best coaches in the league. Nick nurse wears that head coaches mantle with ease. Why because he's been calling the shots for the vast majority of his career. In any number of circumstances his creative he's fearless. He's a little bit irreverent. And I'm telling you mean ah I give them a punchers chance to get to an east finals and a punchers chance to get out. Did you see this coming at all? Doors not even close and this is the question really ultimately. Do they have enough offense in what you're seeing is to me. What appears to be this grooming of Pascal? Ceac him of all right. You gotta go get your own in those minutes and a playoff circumstance where you don't care whether it's a mid range to a fall away jump shot a jump shot under duress of excellent defense. What matters is I need to put the ball in the basket right now because this game is teetering on our control or there's and we've got to have one and you're watching Pascal. Can he deliver in the postseason? He's been excellent in the regular season. I can't wait to see a play out. I think it feels right now. Like you've got the bucks in a tier of their own and then you've got the raptors celtics heat kind of swirling around each other. There was a feeling ahead of the trade deadline that the heat could vault to that number. Two spot perhaps even contend with the bucks if they really went all in and added Gala Nari. They didn't they did add Igwe Dolla. Do you think that's enough? You know the the last prism through which I saw. Andre Gonzala was a man who was battling an Achilles in the playoff series and seemed to be showing the signs of some age. But what I know. Unequivocally is this man from a basketball intellect standpoint. According to Kerr is one of the smartest in the history of the League. He has got championship. Dna He's got positional versatility on the defensive end that basketball intellect and the ability to process information quickly and to do it under the spotlight of the playoffs. He has all of that. I'm anxious to see how he changes the dynamic the Miami Heat. You know this. They're going to play hard defensively every single night. They're going to mix in one of the most effective zones we see in today's NBA and Eric's bolster is outstanding coach. So right now sitting in that fourth spot how far Jimmy Butler can take them. That'll be interesting. Those young guys. Right Duncan Robinson Tyler Hero Kendrick Nunn all those guys who have performed so well in the regular season when the calendar switches. Can you win with them? Let's see

"Uh and of course we start with Lebron James Darrell Maury Adam silver the entire and Hall of Famer Doris Burke here would espn's doors Birkin Manhattan site of well your first preseason game in the Eastern Conference right Wednesday night on ESPN Knicks Hawks doors how are you great can't wait you see trae young tomorrow at Madison Square Garden couldn't be better I am so excited for the season one week from tomorrow night we'll be working it's fast this off season gets shorter and shorter for everybody we'll get to the season I wanNA start where everything has started lately with the NBA and China the story had may maybe quelled a little bit in the public eye once the nets the Lakers came back from China those teams Kinda resume their preseason Adam silver goes back to you know I quietly trying to piece back together the League's relationship relationships in China in the aftermath of Moore's tweet about Hong Kong the previous Friday night and then Lebron talks on Monday night Los Angeles and don't think it surprised anybody that he would have something to say on it or he hadn't talked since the trip I do think it surprise people the contents of what he said really going after Darrelle Moray he was clearly a target of of his frustration. I guess would be the word well you've taken aback by how we approached this yes I frankly was expecting a sort of end of quarter coach response us a very polite innocuous non-answer is what I was expecting I think all of us are not naive to the fact that Lebron many of these players has significant investment over there and obviously he is well liked but I was shocked act to be perfectly honest with you he is normally so media savvy the one thing I would say is if you had to be a player over in China at that moment with all of the intensity and the pressure knowing how much stress was put on Adam silver and the League the consistent cancellations of things and activities that you were supposed to do the fact that some players apparently and I think there's going to be more news this coming out lost money during that trip if you were speaking from a place of just being a player and sort of the the intensity the experience but the fact that he went after Daryl Morey I didn't understand it and I was surprised by yeah and I think there's no question that there are a lot of players the bigger the star the big shoe deal the bigger the marketing the more you have to lose and financially there's no question and there's not I'm not sure there's a star player in the last several years who maybe doesn't go to China every summer and multiple times a summer multiple times or worst every other year based on what their off-season looks like and so they understand that I always remember at the Beijing Olympics Kobe Bryant saying and still one of the most memorable moments we've had covering sports was when y'all main comes out literally playing on one lake he physically should have been out there and I remember I talk to Y'all about this podcast a few years ago and he felt a tremendous obligation with the Olympics in Beijing he was going to be carrying that flag into the stadium he was the crown jewel of their not just basketball but all athletics that watching him calm I remember he hit thinking it's only a one maybe two shots in a row to start the game and it's as loud as I've ever heard an arena and there was there was always an appreciation among players remember Kobe said that night now built a bridge to China for all of us and certainly for the League but financially for players and I think it certainly felt to me that's what Lebron now he corrected himself later on twitter maybe we'll talk about it again before this is I'm not sure he will but if he was saying Daryl's tweet put us in a bad position because we physically had to be over there there were American teams there are NBA teams there should have waited that's one conversation that's one way to look at it but if it was about the financial aspect what he's cost us individually or what might happen to the salary cap I think he just come out and say say listen this is about my and he used the word financial but I think he meandered yeah it was unclear exactly what he was saying you early had enough time to digest what had happened and if you were going to speak to it to speak to it with a measure of clarity the fact that within minutes of your you know discussing this with the media you dial back and have to send out a couple of tweets as I said he is typically so strong in his message this is delicate for everybody I get it but it's just I I was shocked I really I was expecting in innocuous non answer or a firsthand account of what it felt like to be a player in China while that was ongoing because obviously none of us can understand and and I think what is going to happen and what had started to happen I think really in the aftermath of Adam Silver's first public statement which was not strong enough I think for people in the Western world not just the NBA but people in the West said that wasn't a strong enough and clearly Adam felt that because he came back and issued a stronger saving later that I think what's happening and I think Lebron has seen this since he talked in an effort to try and protect your interests in China financially otherwise and you're worried about that marketplace audience I think the risk is going to be alienating the one you have domestically and I think that's the line if anyone else is going to speak up on this that's the line and and take a similar stance Lebron and my guesses after Lebron talked and Darrell tweets I will be surprised if there's anybody else who says much but this issue's not going away there's a microphone in front of or notebook in front of or somebody's undercount in front of them the story won't go away and I imagine we haven't heard the last from whether it's an owner a player and executive commissioner what is the bottom line for the business I feel as though I've recently either read or seen something relatives the salary cap implications as percentage of the NBA's business what are we looking at well the potential is if hypothetically and there's no reasonably this is happening if all of the revenue in China away it's significant to the cap they'd feel it now I don't feel my sense is that there's there's always concern but right now it's more of a question of the rockets money which is significant to them and that money shared in the league and rockets on television over there rockets sponsorships they have locally that all feeds into the the player perspective which is the central player share right revenue I think it would be a modest dip if this continued in there's no reason to believe necessarily that we'll be interesting is if they try to if they can continue to try to isolate one team and Houston you're not going to be on television China the sponsorship opportunities are gone forever will they isolate just one team like this or does Adam silver have a different conversation and say you can't do that to one of our teams but certainly does it have an impact for the rockets yet James Harden use his reaction initially he stepped as far away from Darryl Morris tweet and it wasn't Lebron was maybe a little more strident about it but but certainly James Harden didn't see apologizes ufologist he didn't jump bottom line he apologized since oh no question any of our possessions we are all financially invested in so now it's going to get more attention when obviously a player talks about it doc if Daryl's tweet did nothing else it forced and maybe my world's more narrow that maybe my world's too narrow but there's question it forced a conversation in this country not just around the NBA but in lots of other quarters now I know you're going right it forced people to talk about something and discuss something that a trade war wasn't necessarily doing or any other there was a sixty minutes the other night on Sunday came on after football game. CBS Six minutes reporter was embedded in with some protesters in Hong Kong. And I watched the whole thing I asked myself after what I have get on CNBC AND MSNBC and any financial program but in the American public's conscience this particular instance has brought the entire thing into sharper focus that's powerful and if it forces an examination of conscience you know we've had all these American corporations talk about we need to look at ourselves in terms of our impact in terms of climate change and any other any other number of important issues right that group of CEO's went to the government said we are committed to be good business practitioners so if it forces an examination of conscience for everybody involved in any circumstance I don't think that's a bad thing in just in the context of the NBA. I think this conversation maybe painful maybe financially costly down the road I think in the end it's healthy for the NBA. I just I think it is it's a good chance for all of us to look in the mirror and say how we feel about this how we feel about this issue to know more about what it means to do business early innovative in his job built a championship level team hasn't one one but built a team that has contended and he's the one person on the human side of this wounds that he consistently pops into my head is you know what him on any number of things but answering the questions that are constantly putting their faces it asking the questions if you don't know your numbers you don't know your business but the problem growing businesses have that keeps them from knowing their numbers is up too much time and too many resources and that hurts the bottom line so introducing net suite by.

"I like different journeys. And yes, it's cool. And it's nice that he's very open. No, Gregg Popovich in the playoffs for me share. It was all Steve Kerr, Nick nurse and too easy. You need we need to heart. No, no. I remember having to walk up to Steve Kerr, I think it was just I was this first NBA finals game one where he went down twenty and in the first quarter knows like no one of them any comes storming over the Overby, and he goes, it goes Doris. It's over twenty you know I gotta to this any apologized in the post game press writes, I don't get to decide they tell me what to do and I do it. I wish you could add post game with pop at the end of game seven. A public question. So not fouling there, just let the clock run out that was the strategy for greatest coach in the history of basketball. You think maybe I thought how about the end of game two of the finals with a four second of ritual. Yes. Toronto elects not to fell, which so, so this is actually where I've changed my viewpoint little bit my year ago or two years ago, I would have said you have to immediately immediately. It's a no brainer to four second differential. The other team can almost literally run out the clock. Right. You with one on the shock larks. You moonball it up there. You hit the rim and the game's over would have learned more and more in these situations is not does that every team is going to shoot like Andre did. Andrea shouldn't have taken that shot. He made it. He probably shouldn't have taken. You should've held it another couple second and taking it, but teams are just not wired that way. They're not going to do the moon ball off the rim and day. Nearly got a steal. Very nearly got steel so close. So my thinking has changed. I actually kind of like the way that they played it until you get to about ten or eleven seconds..

"Oh, one I think I did. I can't remember remember and I sit look I mean they, they won championships in seventy three games without him and be I'm not saying they will win. I'm just saying they, they can win if you simulated this raptors team versus this warriors team without Kevin Durant, a thousand times on a computer a certain percentage of those times it is not trivial. And maybe even as a majority, the wears are going gonna win that they might not win this particular series especially now that half. They're team is injured, but they're going to like dick, dick, dick and win like it's they can beat anybody for in seven. I agree. I wanna go back to something just said, because it's just a little intriguing to me. How different Nick nurse seems to be an I mean, like somebody asked me, did he out coach Steve Kerr and game on like that's just so silly to me? Okay. And like I thought right? It wasn't the Exxon knows. Where they got beat the warriors they got beat with speed. They got beaten transition anyway. I don't even wanna get down that rabbit hole just to your point about Nick nurse saving a couple of things just like Steve Kerr's probably stay saving a couple things. But like one thing you saw consistently with Toronto. And I wondered how the players were absorbing during the course of the year. And you we pop in a game, don't necessarily have the time to talk to people because we're not staying two or three days. Right. We're getting our meetings, whatever. Anyway, the constant lineup shuffling the different strategies, the just throwing things at the wall sodas, speak to see if they stick like Nick's willingness to be flexible and trying to innovate and throw things the fact that he didn't institute's a box one. Jeff men Gundy incredulously. Like I don't think I've ever seen that in the NBA. I just think it's cool. But Fred van Vliet said to assist morning and he wasn't. I almost don't want to go here, but he brought it up. So I'm thinking, okay like. He's like coach. Casey goes you knew every single day what you're going to get and we love that as players, because there's routine etcetera etcetera eighty goes there were times that was like, gosh, you were questioning how there's nothing that we know we can count on day to day in terms of expectation, but he said, alternate -ly. It's been a great thing. So there's different ways to skin, the cat. I just thought it was, I very fitting you said that in reference between case because that's one of his favourite expressions with different skin, the cat whenever people would criticize Toronto's offense like boring. Two different gonna cat. Yeah. It's an interesting. I just thought Fred his honesty was refreshing, that he said there were times, where he was frustrated or didn't understand during the course of the year. But ultimately the way the season played out. I think he was essentially without putting words in his mouth saying there was a method to Nick nurses, madness speaking all experimentation, I think for a first year head coach now. Obviously, he's not a first year head coach. He's a first sure NBA head coaching. He managed the season. Really, well he not. And it's not just quieten. The load management thing which frankly, I think, is about Nick nurses head. Anyway, I just think he, he knew when to hit the accelerator new wind back off in new wanted to say, hey, we're just gonna do film today. Hey, we're not gonna do any film today. This is an off day lockout day, and I just, you know, tactically, like they handled the box off the bench seating, like it, worked really smoothly like everyone bought in Nick nurses lot of credit for that, too. I think he's coached. Is it been fun? He's like, when you get a new guy to add to your inner like between quarters interview list, right? He's his new edition this year. Very interesting. And I just think story is a fascinating one to, you know, to take an unexpected journey to, to be the head coach of, of an NBA team to basically beg your way into. Coaching G league team by driving past an arena and saying, jeez. We should probably have on there. I just I like a story. I like story like that. He was a player coach and I don't know. I think it's a cool story..

"But when he said, miasma back when he said he's the most confident guy on the team I almost wanted to happen, the interview like on a team with you, Kevin. And clay Quinn is the most confident I love that Quinn. He's, you know, dream on I saw said, you know, he's our Patty mills. But he's not there, Patty mills he doesn't play enough to be there that I just think like the score, I point guard size guy who calls off the bench. He needs to. He is a pushover on like when Chris Paul, so Quinn cook on them. Crispell six feet tall. And he was like, oh, this guy, I'm are by nobody. I'm just gonna kinda push them push him around and she's like he needs to get a little tougher defensively. But we'd see him a lot to me, the more interesting part of the other end because they found something in game two with clay as co is primary defender. Because Claes a really good on ball. Defender off ball. He's not quite as impactful you put. They put it dollar on Siaka him if you have. Kawais got the ball and you have Igwe Dala and Draymond on the back line has helped defenders all of a sudden you got, like whatever thirty feet of arms, or whatever it is at grant intellect and two of the smart. The holy they and one of my big questions for the series was a who would guard choline. What they go to clay to do it more than I expected, frankly, and be can clay handle it because Kawai is has size and strength and weight on clay and that feels exploit -able but it looked really good in game two. And if he can't do that. Then you've gotta go reset the matchups Andres. Gotta do it. Andres. Banged up who's Klay guarding who's on Siachen. What is who's dry? Draymond was guarding Kyle Lowry and the second half of the game. And doing quite well on the where do you have to move drain on now? It's everything ripples on defense from is clay healthy enough to take that pounding because it's I mean Kvant looney. It looked like one of those sound off look like one of those things where like a super villain in a movie throw somebody through a wall twenty feet away. It's incredible. To me. That's the first thing you know we sat with Andrei. Hi, can't remember where but the one thing he said to us was I, I don't think I'm not even sure cl- co y understands because he probably does he goes for me, it's his strength. He goes, it is. It is so forceful to deal with Colli from a physical strength standpoint. Like it's almost like, you know, one of the things that my buttonholes are said about Yoenis like I don't think he gets enough credit for strength sustain with Kawhi. Neither guy gets enough credit for the strengths of great question. Because if you're sixty to seventy percent, the only thing is, I don't, I don't know what your perception is quite doesn't look, right? To me either a word. He us. He's not right. I one of their players accidents, let slip in room, not going to say, which one something like we ask to this, that the other thing about coli, he said something like an, you know, consider this is not even writing. Ooh. So I think his knee, whatever one it is bothering him. I'm watching him go up and down the floor. I'm like, he, he looks like he's laboring at times your member the play in Milwaukee, where he dunks and he goes to turn around and he death stop, which was like game three I think a lot of games ago. I saw this guy. He didn't wanna move all of us felt that kind of pain, on the basketball court where you just go. Ooh. That wasn't good. Yeah. I saw him walking to the podium..
