Does I know with certain books have done for me in my life. And that's why I wrote one and why not inspired me. So that's why I'm so when people pick up and read it. What are they gonNA take away from it? This is like a self help. Books like self actualize books. And they're going to realize that they have all the power in everything that they have that they want to achieve their goals or dreams right inside a woman.

Draymond Green compares Warriors to 'The Last Dance' Bulls, says Kevin Durant was 'elephant in the room'
"You Draymond green check out the last dance and like you he's got thoughts Draymond facts as he sees a lot of similarities between the bulls and the warriors for instance the so called elephant in the room the boys often wise and that was their last year together except everybody knew about that elephant golden state's offense was Kevin Durant according to drain money often being what was the ramp going to do at the end of the year nobody knew because Katie wouldn't say and dram on seem to take issue with that because he has teammates had to answer the question because the route would not I could see were dram I would be unhappy about that well don't Randy need to say exactly what he was going to do what he should have done was sad I don't want to talk about this ask me again at the end of the year but not before I don't ask my teammates and my coaches either there's a right way and a wrong way to handle that and I grew a drain monitor rand handle that
How the Warriors stack up against Jordan's Bulls
"Everybody in the free world. Watch the last dance the other night. It appears Draymond. Green did too and draymond green went on a podcast yesterday. uninterrupted W RT s after. Show party with Paul Rivera and Maverick Carter. No less And he likened their last season with Kevin Durant the warriors to what he had just watched on. Tv with the last season of the Bulls and he didn't hold back and he said one of the things from watching it. Was that what you saw? Is everybody kind of set it up like this is going to be the last year and so there was none of that elephant in the room hanging out there for their team That last warriors team with Durant and said that you know. Steve tried to deal with it but Kevin was asked about it every day. Dream on saying I want to be a warrior for Life Klay say and I want to be a warrior for life and then there was this elephant in the room the entire year and it was almost as if he watched the last dance and thought Jeez They handled that a lot. Better like hanging out there the whole year. Everybody knew that was going to be the end and so they just treated it that way the whole year. What you guys think. I mean ownership didn't handle it better. The player of the players may have the players may have handled it at worst. And Scottie Pippen you know getting the surgery when he did wanting out you know Jordan thinking was selfish but ownership on the warriors side of things. At least their goal is building with sustainability. They WANNA keep steph curry and Klay Thompson and continue winning. Reisen Dorf in Krause and the Bulls were ready to pull the plug after the first three championships. Trying to trade pippen for camp granted that still a win but then after it it's about China. Tear Down Arriba. I don't see that from the warriors now but it is fascinating. How much history has repeated in some ways with the disease of more and whatnot that manifested with Katie? Always being jealous of steph curry in the spotlight that he received and you look at what the Bulls went through in the nineties. I it is hard to see the parallels from the players side. We think I didn't see it. I just think Jerry mind was a I think he was a little narcissistic with it is totally different situation. Durant in that situation is basically the Rodman character. Rodman was on the Bulls for three years. Durant shows up for three years pushes him to another level but other I mean the bulls thing was so different Jordan and pippen were together for you know twelve years and there were Phil Jackson for. I don't know it was at least nine or whatever and everything was the same and they were just going going going and they had all these different ups and downs and that warriors thing you know they durant was on that team for blip was if you add up when when he actually showed up and then when he left. It's less than three years. It's like thirty months It's not a perfect comparable for for either team. But I do think you know the players you know seeking that attention. Wanting what's there's at I think with that aspect there's some similarities but overall though I mean I'm with you in the sense that ownership in front office objectives here are far different in what the Bulls wanted to do in the nineties with Crowson. Reisen Dorf is far different than what the warriors are trying to do with Myers and and warriors ownership. Now right I mean the differences with the warriors thing. It was one person undermining the whole thing. Durant yeah the Bulls thing it was. It was like a bad marriage with you. Know eight nine different people. All knowing like the marriage is ending and I think with the warriors they kept trying to pull durant back in that second season when he was there was when it started to fall apart in the third season. I still feel like they felt like it might be salvageable until they had that clippers game and then after that I think there are some similarities with the chemistry. Let's say let's say this. Let's say draymond. His way would have played out the way he wanted to write like. I don't buy for one second. If Kevin Durant started that season said this is my last year with the warriors it still would have been a problem like the right here the whole year by the way. He should have done that though. That's how he should have handled it and I think part of the problem is he didn't handle it that way. And you know the players and the team new organization. They knew he was leaving. They knew about all the New York stuff they thought it was gonna be the Knicks but they knew he was leaving. It was by especially by February march ever in the league new so I think from that standpoint underminded what's the elephant in the room. That draymond talking about that. You know what I'm saying if they all had this understanding Kevin. Ain't going to be with US after this year. Then why is he acting like it was a problem throughout the entire year? That Kevin was just saying Oh. I don't know we'll see we'll because I think Kevin probably agree with this. I think there was still hope that he might do a one eighty. You know I I think that. And honestly with the with the ninety eight balls and you're gonNA find out in the tenth part it came a lot closer to everybody coming back except for Rodman I I think they knew Rodman was done but I think once they actually won. I think there was a moment there where they were like Holy Shit. What are we doing? We gotTA defend this again.
Draymond: Warriors had 'elephant in room' in KD
"And speaking of Draymond green we played a little bit of sound from him in the sports center update there and to what you're talking about again dream on green was on uninterrupted W. R. T. S. after party basically saying but at least the bulls knew from the beginning of the season this was it they knew it was going to be imploded after the ninety seven ninety eight season and they knew that was going to be it one way or another and that was that was the last chance exactly as as Phil Jackson moved into a fair and drain lines like we never had that opportunity that was kind of the elephant in the room at all does Steve what kind of of like let's just enjoy this year for what it is because we don't know where you make sure homes it didn't carry it necessarily carry the same weight because what should have happened we'll come out and say Hey man alive like this is it like so let's let's do this yeah this isn't it you know so but you can just leave because what happened was the question came to us everyday life claim also was asked about our country and it was strictly due to you know because what I was going home it was sad I want to be awarded for like I want to be here we started this thing this is why I want to be and then you kind of have children right I don't know what to do next year like it don't matter but it does matter because you're not the only person that has to answer that question and to be quite Frank with you you're the last person that has there's no question because you don't really say thank you don't say much to the media anything it's all of a sudden

Ashley Blaker: Goy Friendly
"Talk about some. I'm pretty heavy issues. Israel Iran Patriot of Jews. So our next guest is a pretty big leap for us. Ashley Blaker is Jewish standup comedian. He is the first Orthodox Fox Jewish comedian to be given his own BBC. Show Ashley Blaker. GOYA's guide to Judaism which returned to the air in October. Two Thousand Nineteen. Now he's in New York for his latest off off Broadway. Show Ashley Blaker Goi friendly which premieres at the Soho playhouse. On February third and runs through February twenty third. While his previous off-broadway production strictly unorthodox was tailored for Jewish audiences. This one he says is not just for the Jews. It tells the story of how Ashley's close friendship with Muslim. Comedian Imron on. UCS completely changed his life with antisemitic incidents on the rise around the globe and even here in New York actually hopes to make the audience laugh but also understand stand a little bit more about their Jewish neighbors Ashley. Welcome to our studio. Thank you for having me so I have to ask you right out of the gate. anti-semitism is not funny. So how how do you address that topic with humor. Well the reality is I think he's anything can be funny. So I'll let you come to Louis showing judge whether I make. It isn't about antisemitism. I should say that there is actually a section is a band. Semitism thought. I think the more interesting is the fact that that when antisemitism is on the rise there are two ways of dealing with. This is a way of kind of hunkering down. Just going. We're we're now gonNA stick to ourselves and and try and protect ourselves and put up the security barriers and let's have lots of armed guards on the on the door in social ones bags and all of that stuff all you can kind of outreach. As it were and try and engage with the outside world and that's what my shows about about the latter it's about reaching out to the outside world and in a way this makes wants a comedy show. You know hopefully nonstop funny. Sound sound incredibly dry but Hopefully demystify Judaism a little bit. That's certainly one of the aims. Okay well I would say you could do both right. Do the security see the undercover getting having no security either. All kind of you know very good at that accused but I actually my playbill. I wrote a Performance note and for Bates Him. But I said something about how you know very good dividing ourselves as a as an in one of the things into I enjoy doing you mentioned my show strictly and also those I I love bringing choose together because we figured it kind of separating ourselves in so many different ways you know on the whole joke about the Jewish man who lands on a desert island and he builds two synagogues one ones that he'll go to one that he wouldn't ever be seen dead and that's like what we're like but I do think that there is it is an important time to actually reach out a little bit and we can. I think sometimes certainly not in any way suggesting that we. We are in any way a foot four and symptom of course but I sometimes think that actually being too insular. Isn't that helpful. Listen so now you are from the UK so well the Labor Party. I have to ask you about the Labor Party. I'm afraid But it's often regarded as the political liberal party of choice by many Jews in Great Britain. And I'm curious how you dealt with the last election and whether or not you felt politically homeless as I kept had reading about the Jewish community. There didn't myself but I'm sure other people did and I think that yes certainly in the post for many Jews the Labor faulty will have. I've been there home by just as much as the Conservative Party would be for many Liberal Democrat. We have quite a different political system. Should know to to to the Americans as many but yes I mean. It was incredible. What happened over the last few years and how symtas I'm just rose and seem to not be dealt with toll within the Labor Party in? Yeah it was a terrible thing we still really really been dealt with properly gone away. Yeah I know there were. There were several vile things said many vile things said ed by Labour politicians but then also Jeremy Corbyn himself was talking about the lack of irony that many British Jews seem to have. I don't know if you recall that particular. Yes it was Avia. Yeah it was a video I think from a while ago. Actually but he had yes he had said something. And there's a lot of these kind of allusions I think is because they. They caught clever then. They don't outright. This isn't the foul right then marking the street saying killed the Jews. It's a very allusive. Quite clever thing of of Hinson these particular weight alluding that Jews and Israel inflating the to and to you know the whole talking about antisemitism and anti Zionism also that that things that really came along with the Labor Party and I saw something videos of people saying no no we. We're not intimately to we like the right to choose. I think there's that thing of the good news and the bad news and I think that's a really good. Jews has ones March against Israel and kind of write letters to the Guardian saying that we support Sanctioned bedia smell that kind of thing uh-huh and then the ninety five percent of the badges. I mean that's clearly terrible things so it's been a really dark period and I didn't know it'll be interesting to see in the the next four five years. How things change? Have you tried to address it with humor. There over showed. I just did a toll in opened in in May with my friend Imran you mentioned draymond so imminent. He did a tour together called profit sharing actually breaking news in profit sharing seek clever title. And it's not address head on there are other people addressing this head on and the the truth is the way to look on twitter five minutes especially around the time the election to see that kind of Echo Chamber people. Don't WanNa hear they. You know you you tweet. Something about Labor Jeremy Corbyn and immediately comes back. This prepared list of twenty times. Jeremy Corbyn has both a motion ocean in parliament. That's been helpful to community Blah Blah Blah say. No one listens to each other anymore. People just spout the same thing. So I'm not sure engaging in that kind of way addressing head on is that helpful she because people just don't want to listen right. I'm sure it's the same here with trump and I'm sure there are people who are vehemently say one one thing you don't want to listen to the side. Yes that is. That is a problem that area. So I think that's something we've seen a lot particular around brexit and all these issues as we've had in the UK and the F. But so my show anyway. Mike show look comedy show. That's the the the main PARV. So I'll tell you briefly I mean essence shows. It's about yeah. Tell us about the show but then I also want to hear more about Enron and your friendship so the show about my friend she was Enron said. So that's the kind of I think in film in terms they call that the macguffin. He's kind of you know that you heard that term. I'm not familiar with that. So it's like using the original star wars. I think C. Three Po an onto d two of the macguffin that they're the ones like sent off into onto the desert and enter tattooing. They've got the messages item. Thank you the whole plot revolves from. Then there's no actually about them but it starts from them so in a way money's the macguffin hit because is a true story we're good friends we went untold together. And he's very interested custody my life he didn't know much about Judaism me belly of June. We spent many hours together in the call. He was always drawing because he he's Muslim. Couldn't in claiming been drinking and he's always asked me questions and I kind of wanted to teach him about Judaism. But where do you start. We've got six hundred thirteen commandments. It's too long to the call I didn't want to spend money on guests so I thought well I teach him about the Ten Commandments. And we started looking at the Ten Commandments. And I unrealized. They're not that practical you know he doesn't have an ox next all so there's no need to worry about not coveting it and I so I could. Maybe set myself challenge of coming up with my own ten commandments. That I could be a bit more practical. But they could actually explain what it's like to be an Orthodox Jew in two thousand twenty and in a way. It was my friendship with him. That made me reconsider my Judaism. Because she had I've been living as an Orthodox Jew for the best part of twenty years but it's only when an outside comes along install challenging us at you start having to think about it you start thinking about your love. So that's what the shows about and it's about me going through these ten commandments. My New Ten Commandments. antiquing this to him okay. So do you mind sharing a few of the talk commanded if you're the one of them is thou shalt develop obsessive compulsive disorder okay. She's an integral Paulsville so shoot as But we cover branch of Judy. Check that box right exactly. So we cover a lot of these areas we cover kosher food and living in a Jewish area.

Kevin Durant reveals when he knew he'd leave Warriors after last year
"Lot of these trades. Aides are confusing and Diangelo Russel. This is his fourth team now. and He's twenty three he's eight dynamite all star and so he kinda got thrown into the mix. Because if you're the if you're the the the warriors and you could get him in the process of losing durant you do that a hundred times out of one hundred. It's just the question. Is that if I told you at the time right that when they were losing him you know when they were losing durant and gaining him that it would turn into Andrew Wiggins and a top three protected first round pick. I think we would have said at the point in time. Okay I got it because you're already seeing the first blush results on NBA NBA twitter. That he's kind of playing the role of Harrison Barnes and the first championship run remember Harrison Barnes was the crucial member of that was and that wiggins is going to play that role. Livingston's not there anymore right so so he would be that guy. And if you're Steve Kerr you're like I can. Let's get to this guy if I'm coaching up. Three million green and his personality Wiggins of former number one overall here comes wiggins. I'm thinking he's thinking that and is now just think about it. Think about it next year. Are they open up in that beautiful jewel up in San Francisco. It's all filled up right and Curry Klay. Draymond Andrew Wiggins and number five stroll on the floor and number five could be the first overall selection in the draft left or the fourth overall selection in the draft. They could have all those guys showing up there next year and have the first and fourth overall picks in the draft tiredly possible
NBA 2020 Predictions
"About My tween twenty bold predictions now. This isn't just for the regular season. This is for the off season. This is the beginning of next season to these addiction that I think that potentially could happen. I'm going to say them here today. And maybe you can agree with me some. You may think this crazy in some you might agree with. We'll have to see my first pro. Prediction is that both L. A.. Neither one of the LA teams will not make the Western Conference finals. I think a team will beat them or since the clippers. Don't take care too much about seeding in the Lakers. Stay the number one seed if the clippers land four or five. They'll play the clippers in the second row. They'll play Lakers around. which would men? 'cause obviously semifinals matchup US and other Western Conference finals match. But I also feel like there may be a team that could upset me maybe Houston is probably the most likely that could upset one of the LA teams and. I think that they're going to keep them from making the the the Western Conference finals. I know a lot of people were expecting that to happen. A lot of people are wanting to happen. I'm sure it will be great for the Lee but I really think that that's something in my opinion that I think is going to happen. That's one of my first. Bold predictions of the twenty twenty season in further on my eh prediction is that the Golden State Warriors will form another super team. Now I don't know if there's going to be with Jaanus. It could be a cry towns because Golden State is monitoring situation but Golden State clearly knows. Listen with the way the League is if we want to be on topic how can we need to get an update US another super team together and I think that they're definitely trying very hard to get another another star player in there now. I do like that. Probably means that's the end of Draymond Green. But I think that's what they're aiming for taming to get their aiming to get another star in there to see to come back with clay and to come back with Steph potentially really they can make you trade for star because they if they do get a top three lottery pig. deathly do not be surprised. If they try to make a trade with that pick honestly they honestly could have just picked up an amazing asset for them because they could use that as trade bait in. That's good trait rate. You know maybe the team star is disgruntled. Maybe you never know. I mean this isn't somebody would think about like the sons have another bad year. We'll we'll give you our top pick and another guy. And we want Devon Booker. Obviously Yona how that work I mean you know. They're kind of doing the right now. And the end of the Russell even yeah no. We Really Devon Booker may be a better player Neanderthal Russell. But that's definitely a prediction I think could potentially happen. I think that the warriors warriors will form another super team. But it's not going to be as top heavy instrument of Kevin Durant who like the second best player in the League. That's why think if they got Jaanus it would be stacked because of state Stephan Klay can play like they play and then they completely put a better supporting cast around. Then you could say okay. Yeah this team is going to be very tough to beat. Even laker teams have a team. They may be looking up to but it will have to see because if they get any towns houses. This is a great player but we don't view him as view when Kevin Durant was there which means even though it would be very top heavy west conference. But that's when also and my pro predictions one of my other pro predictions. Are I think that revenue from the C.. BA will increase which will lead to more players undeserving of big major contracts. Getting big major contracts. I'm going to say any names. But it's like okay. Well I'll say this because I don't know if he's GonNa get it but there are people who are sometimes wonder now dre walgreens supposed to be a free agent this offseason offseason Draymond Green. We know he's not a guy who's going to score points we can do live. And he's a great gadget player. I would say but some people wonder. Would somebody pay draymond green the Max would they give draymond green that Max deal. That is something they definitely wonder about and like a question. Like why would you give you Max. If if there's more money to be spent draymond green could potentially ask for Max and if you like laundry a month you might give them close to it. I mean we already have players now. who try to sign that? First Max deal then take a shorter deal. Just didn't end up getting of that. Ten Year supermax dill. But you know it's one of those those things where I think that this will lead to more players being signed overpaid and I mean you obviously can see more cat room. It can lead the teams being in very weird financial situations with cap every team six Performing up to expectation and then you played a lot of guys a lot of money who may have never actually deserve the money in the first place so. I think that that's going to be something that's going to be interesting another addiction I have is. I think that James Harden will make it to the NBA Finals Cheer. I know that's pretty big. That basically means you're saying he's GonNa beat one or both La Teams. I think James Harden. This would be the best year for him to do it. I think right now this I flew. This is his best year do it. So I'M GONNA go ahead mcnabb. Oh predicts names hard. It's GonNa make the finals. These the rockets are GonNa make the finals. This may be shocking to you. But that's how I feel. I feel like that. Jr potentially do it. I feel like if he was able to average at least thirty in the playoffs and Russell could give him about twenty twenty three. That's fifty three between the two players and they have some good supporting cast. You can't forget about. PJ Tucker can't forget about Erik. Gordon Clink Appel. You definitely feel like they have all the potential attention in the world so potentially be a top team and so I would not be surprised if they end up being the top team they think they can be and making it to the NBA NBA finals. This year in basically just creating just such a great agree moment for the city Houston also another prediction. I think Diane if he comes back as soon as they say he come back. We'll still win rookie of the year. I think Zaylon has all the talents. Be A star of Zion. Comes back in balls out in just twenty points a game in gives you a lot of highlight plays. I think he will be able to squeeze out winning rookie year only only playing half of the year again. That's a pretty bold prediction but as I've anybody can do a Zairean can all takes his cause. Remember even the Luca one owned by a lot last year. You trae young exciting second half which made it interesting and don't be. We don't feel like John Moran is doing with Luca Danni last year so it's not as far fetched is not as it's not like oh it's completely impossible for Luca played so well and then trae young play well in the New Year but he's still play. Okay well it's like John Mirant is playing. Maybe the best right now. But he's not playing at local level from last year so of Zion can have maybe a trae young like surge in the second half of the season. I think he'll go ahead and win the rookie year. But it all depends on when he gets back. 'cause I do if he didn't get back to maybe mid February with that he wouldn't. It's only two months left in the season. At that point. He has to probably get back to move in the next two weeks and then just start going on a tear from game one because dial is full practice recently so he's clearly about to get there. Obviously you've seen him take jumpers you've seen him dunk Donc so I definitely things I on can win the rookie year if he gets back in time and my last bowl prediction is that the Atlanta Hawks will add a star player. This off season. I don't know who but I feel. They're gonNA add some but I feel like some of the issues they've had I flipped. They're going to add a star. Because I feel like you need to especially to make trae WANNA stay there because rotations rumblings that he might and I wanna stay. That may be something that you may want to do. If Your Hawks Front office you need to add some talent in their yep some good young talent but you're going to you know how it is as league view in a win you're gonNA have to give up that good young talent for solidified star. Obviously I feel like trays untouchable. But maybe Kevin Heard. Or maybe you D Andre One hundred maybe a cam reddish maybe push them shelby John Collins and I think they're gonNA make a trade for a proven star in this league and we'll have to see whoever that star is how far the Atlanta Hawks may potentially get because of it but that's it for me thank you for listening listening to the GMC football basketball podcast on the GMC podcast network.

"draymond" Discussed on The Lead
"The the decline of this warriors team. It's really incredible the way this dynasty is just crumbled really overnight. Have you ever seen anything like it. No Ohio not my time. Covering the League Steve. Kerr who's obviously has a lot longer of a resume around league all the way back to when he played for the Bulls. He says he he hasn't seen anything like it. You have Kevin Durant blown out his Achilles in game five of the finals last year which was really kind of a catastrophic event. Seeing the team have to deal with that was a bit stunning. But then literally the next Game Klay Thompson the sturdiest warrior in this run he blows out his ACL in game six so they go into the season already with these injury problems and then a fourth game of the year in fact not contact on the left Wrist Steph Curry on a fluke crashing. Dr Breaks his hand and breaks. She's left hand pretty severely work to where he's going to have to miss three months and once he does that the season Is kind of a wash and yet. It's kind of spiraled to this point where they have the worst record in the NBA. King shot sixty percent from the field and held the warriors to thirty nine percent. Honestly wants Steph. Curry went down with the hand injury. They really took their foot off the gas and they're viewing this season almost as a vacation sabbatical. Whatever you WANNA call it? They haven't rushed draymond back a couple times from from small little nicks and they're basically kind of you don't WanNa say embracing the tank. Because I don't think they're necessarily purposely losing but they're really taking it easy this year so draymond at least for now is really sort of the last man standing from the dynasty. What did he tell you about his role on the team? I from a leadership standpoint. Whether we're losing out we've been losing as my job you guys helped on way and aren't unselfishly. Who My will to win so much because this year with all the injuries with the fact that they have nine players twenty three three years or younger draymond right now? Is the oldest available player. He has to be the veteran mentor on a bad team. That's kind of. You would expect hard for him because he's going to be watching losing and he's going to be ferociously yelling at his teammates like he did Derrick Nix that one time that got him punched in the face and he's had to rein that back back kind of had a little bit of trouble with that realistically as unrealistic and slow and it's a tough thing still everyday irby doing battle but it's not just like to like to come all of that will but I think also what you've seen is that twenty twenty nine year old draymond. Green is a much more mature version of Draymond Green. And he has. I think handled it in a more teacher mentor role than a mean teammate. Eight trying to shove you into winning when you're not able to win at an MBA level in comes with everything you can't turn on certain parts of that attorney turn off. Certain parts of their own attorneys are. That part's all you get all of that and realistically are these guys ready for all of that and and not only ordering ready but is faira too so happy I finally. He talks about not giving the his young teammates every part of that version of himself. He knows there is the version that yes you'll get a great winter out there on the floor and he'll do unbelievable winning plays but he's also going to fire back coaches in the huddle. He is going to say say sometimes over the top mean things to young teammates. He's going to kill them after every single defensive mistake He's going to be at times insufferable so he has tried to tone that back and take taking a much more delicate way of going about dealing with errors and he talked about just sort of I guess growing up up a little bit as a human being and becoming more of a family man. Yeah you know. He has a fiancee now. He has kids respect after my daughter. Do we went to your lost. Well why did we lose a lot of these warriors. Children have only grown up knowing. Hey every April May and June. We're going to warriors playoff games and we're winning in it's fun even even had Riley Curry steffes daughter in the family team room the other day just basically you know grilling him about why. They're losing do ooh. Yeah we MOSS wiki move. We burn any kind of I guess had to resist the urge to kind of point over. Its staff her father and be like you see him in the cast over there over his left hand. That's probably the main reason they're losing and you know in terms of basketball. How his dream on's role within the team shifted now will? This team doesn't really fit his style. You know I mentioned the switching style when they kinda unlocked him as this defensive offensive center that could guard big men but also quick enough to guard guards and it would really fluster offenses because they were moving almost like. I guess you'd call like an Amoeba out there. A five man unit. This young team doesn't know how to do that. They don't nearly have defensive talent or the defensive brains to do that so that kind of neuters dream I'm on a little bit defensively And also his offensive game has a little bit kinda fallen off a cliff particularly shooting. Agenda's shoot the ball. I I can shoot but it's about getting again to have confidence to shoot you. He used to be a thirty eight percent three point shooter now. He's in the twenty percent. That is a huge difference in that allows defenses to Konig nor you from three and he's really kind of battled with that a little bit mentally particularly the three point shot because he's such a confident guy but that's the one area of his life almost almost where he kind of loses confidence. And what is Steve. Kerr said about dreams role within his team. He has been complimentary of the way dream on has kind of throttle the motion back practiced. which now is Paul? Trump repeatedly defensive drills on the guys needed to hear every word and he also mentioned the need for to rediscover himself offensively. He's working on his point. Shot you know if you think back took three or four years ago. He shot thirty six hundred thirty eight so he's got that in knowing that long-term like he can't become an all that contract of his that four year. One hundred million dollars extension kicks in next year can become an albatross. He can't become a bad player. A declining lining players. He enters his early thirties. He's twenty nine now. Be Thirty when that kicks in and you know this could be just temporary period of badness for the warriors you know sort of just like a purgatory until Steph in clay comeback. Do you think it's possible. That draymond could emerge from this throwaway year as a better more confident confident basketball player and shooter and that he might actually be better positioned to help lift this team back to a championship. I think so. I think they're all embracing what again. They're kinda calling a vacation year. They're about to get a lottery pick. They're about to get their injured players back and if they can get that with arrested draymond green a more confident draymond green. If he's even shooting thirty three percent from three. That could be dangerous core moving into the future that is playoff tested. And we'll be hungry. This starting October twenty twenty and anthony. What about this sort of unhinged element of his personality analogy or that sort of in your face way of being that he often brings but has had to put away this season? Is that gone forever now. He says that he can turn it back on roasted players by having a tougher time turning all tonight do turn you. It's like He. He believes that is like Ed. His core who he is and win. You know the lights turn on in the NBA. Okay says you know game one next year and they have playoff aspirations again or playoff game. One you know he's going to be able to flip on. He'll be the same dream on his old. I am a little bit more skeptical. Because in a strange way what he is acquired from a life perspective with this children and all that that and the fact that I just the chip on a shoulder can't be as big because of all he has done and where he is but he will point to his playoff history and it always has been in the last regular seasons he had kind of down regular seasons and then once the playoffs. Turn on the Bright Lights He's been great but we'll see I mean that's it's really really kind of a question. Mark all across this franchise moving forward. They get this sabbatical but can they come back and rediscover who they used to be one of the need. Thanks so much for speaking with me and hope this vacation year for the warriors is a little bit of a vacation. You're for you appreciate I'm thinking about Hawaii. Come April Nice you can read. Anthony Slater story about the new draymond green at the athletic dot com. Here's some other stories..
"draymond" Discussed on The Lead
"And so anthony. What is it like to interview draymond green while he sitting in an ice bath and did did you consider jumping in there with him? I did not that probably would have been a bit awkward player when you guys and you know it's kind of funny he's actually been on that Kevin Hart Youtube Show where Kevin invited guests to come out and then they sit in ice baths and talk I on him. I'd Kinda told him the day before. Hey like can I get you tomorrow. He said yes then. He's okay Jesus come to the ice bath and I said that I was like Kinda like the Kevin Hart interview. And he's like Oh actually did one of those but you know. The water was kind of lukewarm. You know he said it was fake aac ice cubes actually so yeah. There's a little inside information on it but I guess that's actually kind of fake all right so we're here today to talk about the the new draymond. This guy who is known for his temperament and his incredible competitiveness. The this is behind the basket standard. Who's WHO's now on? Probably the worst team in the League and as you learned Anthony that competitive streak that he's known for that set in at a really early early age. He talks about playing video games with his older brother WHO's much better than him. Video Games would kill him at Madden repeatedly I I was frustrated. You can't you can't weigh in draymond would continue to play. Continue to kind of know US going to lose like like the warriors right now. I know they're gonNA lose and continue to kind of fume afterwards and then one day my boss and I do to control your Bro. And once he found out like to he don't again I couldn't handle loose wasn't well and you know He. He never really had to deal with losing starting in high school and college. He pretty much. The only played on winning teams yes state titles. His last two years in high school I believe Twenty Six and one at twenty seven one then he goes to Michigan State which is a storied basketball program. The only bad season at Michigan state was his junior year and they went like one thousand nine hundred fifteen. I think it was still made the tournament. It's not a terrible season but that's the only on the year he didn't basically almost go to the final four and then onto the warriors were every single season of his career with the warriors he had made the playoffs. Five of them have ended in the NBA finals three of them have ended an NBA title. So yeah it's just a rare string of winning that has ended this year and Anthony. You also spoke with Dre Mons College coach Tom Izzo. So what did he tell you about on a lot. You know he kind of become dream ons confidante you would say and a lot of ways stayed in contact with dream on you know can get off the deepen quick I guess but I I keep saying that's what makes them and I think like we all do still trying to change it sixty when he's gone off the deep end as Tom Izzo likes to say sometimes is kind of serve as a mentor to him to get them through that. So anytime you you WANNA learn about draymond you kind of go to his own. He he was just as curious as everyone is is how to handle this but also was telling me that you know dream on at this age at twenty nine would handle it a lot better than maybe the college dream on the one that Tom Izzo coach would have handled losing. And he told you this kind of memorable story about three months time at Michigan State yet so in practice and drones yapping because he loves to yet but you know he takes it a lot less personal than a lot of times people. He's saying it to you. Know you can get in fierce arguments with draymond green on the court and then two minutes later. He's he's best friends with you again. But sometimes teammates take more personal derrick. Nix was a teammate. That was taken it. More personal drama was really yelling at as shooting free throws Derrick Nix steps across the paint. Ain't and just smoke. Stray mongering with punch right in the jaw. Tom Izzo freaking out. That's not something you want especially at a college practice so I kicked him out of practice and j much. I'll handle this. I said no you want housing. Let him go in the locker room and is around to hear basically like don't go go in there and it was like not school and sure enough she did and worked at. Oh you know and and then like five minutes later they come out and you know again like good friends with them. Hey sorry about that. Let's go practice. And you know that incredible competitiveness or that in-your-face nature. Whatever you WANNA call it? He very much took that with him from from Michigan. State into the pros. I mean. He's a league leader in technical fouls almost every single year outremont green just pushes cousins. The technical bath you know. He nearly came to blows with his coach in the locker room. Steve Kerr a few years ago and if you talk to people around him he really took it from his mother. Who is a very active voice on twitter? You can talk some trash to. We've seen it on twitter Eh. Jake now is it your dream on deleted your account. Your twitter account deleted my twitter face. She's one of the harshest critics at times of the warriors on twitter. So it's really from Saginaw Michigan to Michigan State into his warriors career. But yeah that is it is part of. His personality is part of his press conferences. I'm not a moral victory type of leaving his game looking for something to build up. We've got better media members in the NBA love to cover him because he will say anything at anytime on or off the record and and you know as at warriors team sort of became the dynasty that we all know it always seemed to me like draymond was kind of the glue of that team. I mean he obviously wasn't the best player but he he was sort of like the fire. Will they call them the heartbeat a lot of times around there. Obviously the defensive engine. He's a defensive player of the year. They revolutionized nuys the game in two ways. Everyone knows how steph curry kind of revolutionized offensively with the three-pointers but they became a small ball team where draymond green. He's really sixty five. Maybe six foot six and he a lot of times their best lineups during their dynastic years were him at center. And that's facing off against the Stephen. Even Adams Rudy go bears the world seven foot. You know goliaths out there that he would just bash around and you know he certainly became fairly hated around the league because of the way he talks and the team needed Steph. Curry is as good as he is he. He doesn't like controversy Klay Thompson kind of floating around in his own mental world at times. But they would be criticized last steph. Curry particularly and draymond green would always step up. Defend steph curry rip the refs in Post Post game you know it would help the warriors warriors fans have come to love him. He's a revered figure. In the bay area he's going to get a statue Joe Lak- The the owner of the warriors has already laid down. They just gave him a huge contract this summer. But you're correct. I mean he does a lot of stuff on and off the court that has made opposing fan bases kind of really hate him. Say what you will about Draymond. The Dude has some flexible hamstrings not so much on under the notorious Groin shots but on some of these flailing kicks he really gets his heels up there there. Yeah he does he again kind of adds to to what we're talking about. Not only the way he talks the way he kinda plays and it's very needed for for him to play in this kind of wild style because he's not really that skilled you know. He's playing with these unbelievably skilled player. Steph Curry Klay Thompson. But you know his shots not very good good touch on passing but he he just Kinda have to be physical and flail the arms and sometimes he's going for fouls sometimes. He's just trying to nudge you out out of the way without making the referee. No it's foul so that historically yes has led to some Physical interactions with players. That again has has made the League again. It's fans not love hiring is challenging. But there's one place you can go. Were hiring is simple fast in smart in. That place is ziprecruiter.

"What if I told you the best team in the NBA would become the worst? That really is a thirty for thirty TAGLINE WAITING TO HAPPEN NICK FIDEL covers the golden state warriors for ESPN. Okay Nick. I think it was last week. The that draymond green so eloquently summed up the state of the warriors right now. That's really the best way to it. Could you say Mr Green diagnosis is accurate. Yes no doubt. Meet people all around the league. They saw that that quote there were like wait. Wait wait what it's the warriors it's the warriors and the reality was even with a healthy dream on Steph. They were really we bad in for so many people for the last five years or so. who had watts his team dominate for so long there was a reality in the moment Omen that hey. This is not the same team that we've been watching the coaches and some of the staff members as people were were warm-up takes over the summer that they were just like what what what are people saying. I think they understood that there was going to be a lot of growing pains this year. And now all those pains have come to the forefront really really so during the off season you feel. There was a gap between the public perception of this team. The belief that they would still contend and the internal perception no question it was always for the warriors a gap year from the moment when go back to the finals. Kevin gets her Kevin Durant and then clay tears. ACL Well when you look at the way the roster was being constructed with nine guys who were twenty three years old or younger and you looked at the fact that they were hard capped apt and then they added de Ngelo Russell and you saw the pieces that were in play so many people on the outside went. Oh well you know what they still have Steph Jeff and they still have dream on and Klay. We'll be back at some point and people internally were like wait wait wait wait wait. Wait you have steph. WHO's GonNa have defenders all all over him all the time you've drawn who has struggled at times offensively and who knows if Claes can actually come back or not so all along? There was a there. It was a big difference in what the public perception of the words was this year. In the moment and what people inside the organization felt like it was going to be. Do you think that reality set in one clay got hurt tots hunting and Thompson brats. Now why pay me no. Let's go back in in time in. This goes back to about a year ago. Now now when K. D. and dream on got into that verbal back and forth at staples playing the clippers from that moment and even before that moment there were a lot of people in the organization. That were like. Kevin's probably gone. The thing that really sent this into a different path wasn't that Kevin got hurt because sadly the split was already pretty much done it felt like at least when Klay Thompson got hurt. That changed a lot of things because clay get being hurt that triggered triggered the de Ngelo Russell move. And then you're you're trading away Andrea Dolla. If clay doesn't get hurt maybe you keep big dollar. You don't hard cap yourself yourself this season you come into the new building with both healthy splash. Brothers and Draymond. When Klay got hurt that changed the way this season was going to be viewed? What expectations like first steph curry coming into this season Steph heard the chatter? Uh He always says that he doesn't pay attention to the outside sources me but that's ridiculous I mean he's he's a human being. He knows what's being said. He knew that everybody thought that this is going to be another. Mvp Year for him. He wanted to win the award. But I think Steph knew all along you take clay off the floor. And he's now the focal point with Steph. He knew as much as Kevin. I think drove people crazy easy sometimes within the organization. Nobody doubted just how phenomenal a player. He was Steph walking into this year. Hearing that everybody's saying it all this is your time to shine again. You're the MVP. I think he knew in the back of his mind all along. This is going to be very tough. I don't think the reality of Steph winning winning the award ever matched up to the expectations. They had to begin with. That's interesting to hear because you're right there was a perception or even a hope that we would get that full courier right because with K. D.. They've had to split some of the credit as well as the time during the regular season. And the idea of Steph unleashed. I was really intriguing to people. It was GONNA be awesome but people and this is going to be a recurring theme. When talking about the words they were living in the past people kept saying? Oh we'll steph. Is is incredible and he can do whatever he wants. He's one of the the very best players in the league. He's the best shooter I've ever seen in my life but when you're getting getting two and three bodies thrown at you at every play you're not gonNA play the same way next. This is is not a good basketball team. I feel comfortable saying with Steph out for a few months. Do you feel like the team should consider I am reluctant to use the word. But I'm going to say it. Should they tank leader okay. Let's go back to the night steph curry is grimacing. Emma seen holding what appears to be left risk he took Syria and warriors staffers for walking around and disbelief. They just could not believe that all these different injuries came down really at the at the same time. In the last six seven games they had played eight. I walked up to Joe Lake. The warriors owner walking out of the word locker room I said Joe what do you think about the injury and he said Hey I I saw it. I'm really sad about it but I'm an optimist and I think that this team now has a chance to see what these younger younger guys can do. And I think we'll come out of this okay and I said Joe You understand that once. This injury happened a lot of people around the League are GonNA ask about taking. How do you and media? He cut me off and he said what you say and I said Joe You understand understand that people are going to start asking about taking how do you he said what were to choose. And I said tanking in mean it was really clear earlier. He was trying to send a message to anybody around in the moment and anybody wondering what the warriors are going to do moving forward if they're going to take the answer was resounding no he just doesn't believe in it in this is a proud guy who just opened a billion and a half dollar Rena that a lot of people are invested into for a lot of two years but all that being said as much as I respect the attitude the reality for where the warriors are at is that's just packaging ACA Djing. We're not gonNA take look at the roster the roster isn't good this is not a team full of NBA caliber players. Frankly frankly so the takeaway for me is. This is one of the biggest blessing in disguise that this could be for the warriors
Bold predictions for the 2019-20 fantasy NBA season
"With the season starting tonight Jay world has put together there are three bold predictions for NBA year and it starts with the different superstar in the east it does the reason why Philadelphia Seventy sixers don't have a top deal because Simmons has not arrived all the way yet so here's my prediction Ben Simmons will finish this season in the MVP conversation I've seen the jump shot this summer I've talked to his trainer Chris Johnson he assured me that this is a confidence level for Ben Simmons I think they are going to dominate the east he will be in the conversation grill can shoot the ball he got a very scary player let's go out west now everyone is looking at l. a. what are you saying the Lakers and the clippers will not win the western conference I have the rockets Utah or Denver a win the western conference low management with the clippers where you're GONNA do with Kawhi Paul George Injury to shoulder Lebron James Ad Start off strong I think Frank Vogel kind of limits they're playing time I saw it gets to the regular regular season allowed me recipe the playoffs to be clear you're talking about finishing with the number one seed in the West not necessarily not coming out finally let's go to the team that has made it to the NBA finals every year in recent memory I've been saying this people call me crazy that's fine the warriors will not make the playoffs they are the fourth Bobby Marxists tweet this out they have the fourth youngest roster in the nba the fourth youngest roster now Steph Curry is tremendous I think he'll have MVP type caliber year but still is deal obamacare to loath having him and curry on the court at the same time it makes them a defensive liability draymond green they need him the score they started the day Glen Robinson Third Marquis Chris I mean that's a very and team in the loaded west one of the big questions about them we'll be Klay Thompson how soon he can come back and how effectively he come back and look at West is so low February march that's a big thing look we brought this up earlier the disparity in power between the two conferences if you put golden state in the east they have a chance if if Klay Thompson were to come back in February they could finish with one of the top more seeds in the eastern conference in the West they will agree with you they will likely miss the Blakeway Klay Thompson we'll come back the question is will he find that stride right away and I think after we come off a tornado wild find that confidence what eventually happens they flip Diangelo Russel for the piece that ends up working better in that group next year the year like after this one they're right back they

Holdout Ezekiel Elliott still absent from Dallas Cowboys as first game draws near
"Saturday multiple outlets report that there is some progress negotiation zeke and the cowboys and the expectation was that they would have something worked out by the end of the weekend then last night multiple reports stated that negotiations had fallen flat once again the category on structure the contract like total guaranteed money over how many years not necessarily how much the contract could top out at basically zeke is holding says i want todd gurley contract and then some the cowboys you're saying no because the dot girly contracts hawks folks because todd gurley is not right and if the rams were asked hey. Would you like to go sign. The curly contract again like no no. We're good. We love me on that one. This amid word you always has more cowboys have consistently shown willingness to sign their best players to extensions with two years remaining and make a player. The highest paid his position the fact that they're preparing to start the season without ezekiel ezekiel elliott has a holdout says a lot about how they view his demands. I drafted zeke elliott in in one of my fantasy leagues would have drafted him yesterday and the other fantasy league and my logic is there rawson rachel. He didn't really have have anywhere to go. He's under contract going anywhere and the whole sitting out thing like all right. He could sit out a couple of games. They're not gonna lose to the redskins or lose to the giants or lose lose to the dolphins which is not and this is not the lady on bell situation. He's not a free agent. Franchise tag like he still is under his rookie deal. Deal cowboys are in fact offering him a contract above and beyond that of a franchise tag. They're offering emigrate deal. Cowboys need him. They need him for later in the season need him to win a super bowl. The team is built around. Having a solid running game takes the pressure off dak prescott because it helps it helps to hide the fact that dak isn't deck. I mean that isn't that special. He is an elite but when is given all the weapon who work for he's going. He's fine. He's he's. He's he's draymond. Green deck is dre mongering with the cowboys really really effective without the cowboys and all they have probably just a guy but it's really hard to i find it draymond green just hard quarterbacks league and he has the equity and he continues to grow in terms of being a leader but this is ross and rachel. They're on a break but they're gonna get back together. A namesake tony pollard won't matter in a week or two weeks or a month or whenever and it it feels like the the cowboys probably went back and said look. We'll give you tell total dollar value of that todd gurley we just want to protect ourselves from your legal and bad the way the todd gurley did the cowboys haven't publicly once said anything said anything about you know dude. You were suspended six games and we went to the mattresses for you. Hey dude you almost got suspended this off season and we would have been therefore you. We would have said how wrong it was. We have fought for you. There is some there is some some some sweat equity from zeke but there's also some equity from extended from the cowboys and the other thing about the ross and rachel story to be honest at some point it did take away from the show right like i get it ross rachel. We'll be back together. Who are they dating now. When can they get back together all this other stuff but i like chandler. I like joey. I like how you doing.

"We're sophocles shorts and notice when you need to check oh boy he did so k._p. What about team canada right. We've heard about team canada into being on the rise at times what we expect from them. I mean they've got in terms of n._b._a. Caliber talent of any of these teams even without the guys that are listed there jamaal murray. They just haven't been able to put it together and i think it's similar to what kevin was saying about u._s._a. Basketball where they don't have that collective identity they. I haven't necessarily kept the same group together over a period of time because not everyone plays every summer and then you don't have quite the talent that the to cover that yeah. It's gonna be pretty fascinating just to kind of see how this plays out because as you pointed out a lot of a lot of players in general not just the team u._s._a. We obviously folks on team u._s._a. But a lot of players have bowed out because of how close close this is the training camp in retrospect kevin arnovitz. Do you believe that they should have changed the dates on this when they had the chance to do this and you're playing whack a mole a little bit. You know if you change it one way. It's it's a little close. Guys are still taking breeders. I mean i think this is the load management era and one of the kind of one of the casualties of this era will be international national basketball in a world where guys had promotional commitments wherever where they've one of truly recharged physically and mentally they don't want to get on planes. We hear a lot of talk about your travel title takes. It's toll and i just feel like unfortunately for those of us who loved international competition. It's going to be more right this in the future and i think it'll get to a point even possibly with the olympics that whoever you just don't see the same yet among players to just compete in these events k._p. With team spain who we saw in that highlight package they're just now now. Who do we expect to play for them. Ricky rubio obviously it will be one of the guys who play is there anyone else notable that fans mark soul still as part of their team <hes> they really haven't haven't had kind of the younger players that have stepped up to replace the golden generation. Those guys have started age. You're asking earlier one carlos navarro who i think also was retire tire and you know the younger crop of players from spain having been at that same level generation that was up there who i spent some time with last year nicola cola miratec who isn't playing in the n._b._a. and who is also chosen to opt out until i find when we're talking about whether or not moving the dates makes the difference with the start dr of the n._b._a. Training camps i mean this is starting to bleed a little bit into those competitive overseas guys who've signed these contracts and so i find that very for sure no doubt about about it and he's actually playing for real madrid or barcelona. I don't remember which team he signed madrid yeah a lot of money on your right coming up after the break. We're talking doc rivers and the clippers. Is it fair to call this season title or bus for the clippers. We'll find out pablo here in a few minutes to discuss. What tom brady is.

Draymond, Blair And One Hundred Million Dollars discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show
"I think dream on green just cost himself a hundred million dollars like I think Draymond green could have gotten one of these giant deals is the only good free agent out there and he signed for four years one hundred million dollars because he realized it if I go to the next and the best player all get along touch the stuff but we won't be any good because I can't believe Blair I gotta be right he understands all the arrogance of dream on green for all the cockiness of dream on green he understands that he is in in play more valuable at Golden State that he is anywhere else but in value he'd be more valuable almost anywhere else anywhere else would be willing to pay him more than that
"draymond" Discussed on The Jump
"But why pay fast because Draymond green it nNcholas? So if he goes out of the game, they don't have that same side of face, because they don't have nobody at that position really pushing like that. That could be a disadvantage for them. Absolutely. I want to ask you guys very important question of the Drake question sources tell ESPN that the NBA didn't need speak to the rafters about Drake's activity and presence during the Eastern Conference finals, Nick, do you think that Drake will be two or ten he control himself tonight control self? This is the perfect the perfect platform for drink. He loves the warriors, although he's going to have to step back from that, and all these guys love him, and they will love nothing more than to beat the rounders, and then point and talk all kinds of junk in Drake's face. I think he control himself. But if he says, something I promise you drain mind and staff. And maybe play they're going to have a couple of words, for we are sitting on the set with someone huge Drake. Not control self perk. It Thing would. would Drake in this series. You gotta be careful who you wake up, you know, these guys that are snipers. You didn't really have no sniper in the Milwaukee series breads player can't shoot the ball like these guys they have so you don't want to wake them up from drink. I'm staying calm on the sideline of where of who we are playing and then just sit back and enjoy the game. Listen, whatever Drake one do man I'm in his hometown. I'm in Toronto comment, Drake. One run on the could and doom. Java Jackson, call wills or whatever led Drake. Do his thing man, whatever the case may be Drake. Do. Talk Drake down once. This is the fan. Got you, do you start lights out Swiss that. We, we just click on here. Yeah. So drake. Keep it low brothers. I'll poke them boys boys. Got switch man. The five hour coming out for and talk a little bit more about Draymond green because he said, quote, I'm the best ever at what I do in regards to his defensive versatility. We will see what the guy think about that. I though, here's our second just a replay the day this one two thousand six Boris Diaw. Oh, yes. We found a Boris Diaw. You're going to see it Ross of minute and ten seconds. Here we go. Here we go. Here we go. Oh, he got there guys. Got there go. The figurative done. On that point.

"draymond" Discussed on The Kevin Sheehan Show
"To have that many more weapons, and I don't know how they get on get along off the floor. But on the floor their game complements each other, and they seem to be more than willing to, to understand who has the hot hand who has this mess. They wanna go to. And if you ask me, I'm biased because from the bay area, they're going to a new arena. They're playing in front of sellouts. It's the greatest city in the world. Why would you you're winning championships? Why would you know okay? You can go someplace else and make another three or four day. Maybe it's me. Maybe I just don't have that kind of desire to be the one guy on a team. I don't have a problem with that. I would love to play on that team. And I can't see anybody changing clay K D, Draymond, I, I would I would see I hope to see that team. Stay together for years. But it may not happen with where you are, right. That is the greatest city in this country and you up there and the rest of us just, you know, occasionally, maybe visited, but it's a phenomenal city and they're moving into San Francisco. So I just like you know what when it comes to Durant fill. He jumped the here's here's the reality. He jumped on an already existing championship team. You can certainly argue he made it better and made it a true dynasty by winning the last two but he hasn't gotten, you know, perhaps the credit that he look LeBron to Cleveland to the finals by himself. Something that Katy couldn't do with harden, N Westbrook. Wait got him to the finals, but couldn't win a title against Miami. And then and then we're down young. They were young, but may be for him. You know, he got these championships with Golden State and the next challenge. Hinge is to be the obviously dog not that he is Grayton in arguably the best player on that team. But there's that team also has Steph curry and Klay Thompson. Draymond green will again. Kevin. That, that's totally different way of looking and thinking..
"draymond" Discussed on Afternoons with Marcellus & Kelvin
"And it's left like, what Frank Vogel said is that we just gotta go out there and just show you, if you said it before they start winning you're, like, okay, but they got to like, what, what is going to be success? You know what I mean? Like everything that has happened. George always wanna know what's the goal obviously championship. But what if you don't get a championship because you talking about the teeter? We're going to see tonight, Portland and Golden State, even magic headed this morning, that team, especially now everybody. There's one special team. And then everybody will team every all the rest. They sitting there kinda, you know, even the word is our special. So with that being said, if you're the Lakers, what is success next year if outside of a check, I would say success, look it just depends on what you get in free agency. Okay. Which is kind of part of the question here is LeBron going to be, you know, you think because he showed up at Vogel's thing he's on that he's going to. On a jet flying to meet free agents. Now, look, we know that Steph curry, and Draymond as they're known as the Hamptons, five. Right. Those guys flew out to to the Hamptons to do that. Lebron hasn't been again. He hasn't gone to that extent in the past, he's been phone calls, it's been taxed it's been this. It's been that it hasn't been. I'm going in there in the pitch meeting. That's not what he's done. And again, maybe that, that will change this season because he realizes the importance of it all, but I do think that ultimately to answer your question we won't know until the first week of July, basically, like I won't have an answer for you. I'm not gonna try to act like I know because I don't know. I don't know what this capable of because what I've said is this. If someone comes to the Lakers, it's b it's going to be because they believe in LeBron. It's not because and you could sit here and you're just being in the brunt honk and this that and he other, you know, you, you, you, you know, you Cape for clutch. Well, there's no one else on this in this franchise that has a track record of success. So if they're gonna come here, it's going to be because of the one guy that actually has a track record for success like that, to me isn't being caring for anyone, that's just using logic. Okay. Because let me tell me I've been pretty good ago LeBron at times, and I don't have to sit here and Cape for nobody. Because I don't I don't need anybody to find out what I need to find out or to have the opinions that I need for the show. That's none of that stuff. Matters to me. But with that said, yeah. How would that say Kirk Daniel that answer? None of us are going to have it until. It's, it's too late, and it's either going to happen, and they're going to get somebody, and they're going to be potential contenders in the west or it's not going to happen. And people are going to be like, oh, boy, the clock is ticking, how much can LeBron take, and how much how long is he going to try to make this thing work because that's what he said? Liz, there's only two options you. That's what he said on the shop. Remember, I I'm in championship mode. I'm not here for reboot. I'm not here for the structure of the office. I'm here to win a championship right now. If Frank Vogel is going to be that guy, I'm going to support him now obviously, the structure of the staff, and the arrival of Jason Kidd at some point will definitely help mend that fence a little bit in terms of getting LeBron even more excited about where this team is going, but they're in championship mode right now. Right. And so if he's going to be in championship mode. He's going to be more engaged. And I think that's the reason why he was. Right. What? Because I, I've been to one of the couple of these press conferences, George, I didn't, you know, the show my solidarity for the hiring of lane kiffin. He know what I mean. I, I had I had to go through that George and our to I've been to these press conferences to hire the new coach..
"draymond" Discussed on Speak For Yourself with Cowherd & Whitlock
"Trustee wolf ghost you forget about him until he does something heroic at a critical moment where things get interesting is between Steph curry, and Draymond green originally. We thought the Golden State dining was about the splash brothers. Stephon clay these playoffs have made it clear. This dynasty is built on the backs of splash and brash. Steph and drei. They are the two foundational pieces of the warriors dynasty. Steph is Sansa start. He was born in the royalty. He faced tons of adversity early in his career with ankle injuries. Lebron James abused. Steph, the way king Joffrey Ramsey Bolden. Little finger said, Sansa steps greatness was momentarily, diminished by K D, the same way, our is aerobics, diminish Stansell Sansa. But at the end of the day, Steph is king of the bay and that names, Draymond Golden State's John snow. The guy who grew up believing he was the warriors bastard child, only to find out. He has kings, blood. He's the true heir to the throne. There's no dynasty without Draymond he caused the warriors the two thousand sixteen NBA finals when he took the bait from the James. Got suspended for game five his match ration- over the past three seasons is the reason the warriors on the verge of sweeping the blazes with Durant sideline last week dre called himself the best defensive player in NBA history. That's an exaggeration, but he is the modern day version of Bill, Russell, drain Mons value goes well beyond the stats sheet in the Western Conference finals. He's been more impressive, and more important than even Steph curry. I joined the deaths now are Fox Sports, NPA analysts Kendrick Perkins. Cotino Mobely Marcellus. I'll start with you who has been more impressive in these Western Conference finals staffer drama. I'll be remiss defying say, need to watch game of thrones. Over. I notice. A one percenters up here. Watch who's more important for this team is obvious. Steph curry, and I'll give you the simple as Western Conference. I know what you, I'm with you, baby. Would how Katie you wanna go even deeper? Komo. Yup. If Draymond disappears, they still have a chance if Steph disappears. There's no chance for this team Western Conference finals anytime. His team plays espec- without Kevin. Durant? Draymond is hard to compute. We all know because the defense paced play the numbers are always show his true value, but some numbers do. So let's go into this with, and without Katie and turns Draymond green, what his numbers are you get. One more point. You get one more rebound. And everything else is fewer or two saying he's no different. Any was before K D what we saw. No, what you say what we saw was unbelievable. Triple double performance in the last game that has made a lot of prisoners at the moment. I am not trying to diminish dream on green, I am trying to highlight how great Steph curry is for this team. And we've seen his numbers, which still port his greatness. But also the fact that he went from being the plan b to the plan, which is a much more. Difficult task than going for plan, c to plan B and having the opportunity to go back and forth was Draymond does he has a luxury de Steph doesn't have ends is not afforded? No. Oh, really? Well, the question is, who has been more impressive? That's the question. Oh, dre mongering without a doubt has been more impressive. Steph curry was being Steph curry and beginning to season when Katie was there. Katie wasn't enough career was doing the same thing..

"So I think they started. I think they started lonely. They started someone else instead of bogut. But for the fire with Klay Steph and Draymond in Iggy. That's the heartbeat. That's the polls. So if I'm not surprised that they're playing well, because I knew clay would be a Steph would become more. Yeah. And want to show what he's made of this has been very impressive. So I'm going to give you all what you just said. These are two players on the Golden State Warriors, who are trying to remind everyone in the basketball world. We won before he came. We, we didn't just win. We were all time great. We went seventy three and nine without him in what a Draymond reportedly by our man Christine's of. Gal who say what, what a drain on say to Kevin on the bench when they got into it against the clippers back in one before you arrived that, it's correct? Any also Ed. He he called him be word. And then he just said, leave, so now we have to Golden State Warriors trying to remind everyone don't write us off next year after he does leave because it's almost a foregone conclusion that he will lead. Do you don't look at me scale they packing them bags more over say it does feel feel? Uber and everything a black car executive. Yeah. So I am with you on that, because they say all the right things in the post game we mostly. We want to three peat body language of Draymond and Steph, say something completely different to my I, I have never seen either of those players move more efficiently effectively, an electrically than they did on Saturday night. They were moving. They were quicker than I both of them dream on and Steph had bounce in their step. That I've never seen before. Draymond was playing possessed on Saturday nights. I've never seen like it. You had this conversation, the other day, are they gonna stop great mom from getting the ball out the rim and driving? Anybody goes stop? You just want to know that, right? Ended lamps linked to the floor. Wow. Okay. Now given all that I got to remind everyone that the Portland trailblazers were up seventeen in game two at Golden State. They were up eighteen in the second quarter of game three the other night in Portland. So if we look back at game too, it was tied going to the fourth quarter and on Saturday night, Golden State, led by only three going to the fourth quarter that means it was time for your two all star guard, your to star guards it was time for Damian Lillard and CJ to just get over. Take us home in game two literally back to Portland and win for us at home in game three and both of them, shrink and came up smaller than they actually are. And I have to put the brunt of the blame on Damian Lillard, look he is a really nice guy. He out poised Russell. Westbrook. In round number one, he outplayed him. He sent him home by waving. Bye bye to him at the shot of shots game five to close the deal. It was the final big nail in that coffin. And he showed you everything that Russ is not in the way of poise in character and the ability to stay within yourself, which rust cannot he plays out of control outside himself too much. But I'm here to say that once again right on schedule. It has been proven to me that Russell Westbrook is still more valuable overall than Damian Lillard. I'll still take him because that rage that he plays with it scares people..
"draymond" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"I've fallen back in love with the NBA. I'm not gonna lie this this whole series. Welcome back. Peter, I know thank you, because I know that you are an absolute NBA fan. Right. You'd want the Celtics you cover them closely with your your, your traditional daily show. But I can I feel like every single day you truly care? I'm not gonna lie. I felt like this year I had to grind through it. And I was like a, you listening to us on ESPN radio because I've heard this from many people that have stopped me, and we've talked about sports and what's going on. And people said, Peter. I just feel like I already know what's going to happen. And we saw that in Golden State, and what they do in the third quarter to Portland, just as you call it, snatched, their souls out of their body in one yet, there's something that gives me hope tonight that Milwaukee is going to give Golden State, a run and not having Kevin Durant. I would've never thought that not having Kevin Durant as well as he's played and not having LeBron James in the playoffs right now, actually, makes basketball more enjoyable, that, that's I know the ratings are going to be down. But damn the ratings man. I'm sorry. And maybe that is part about four one K. I just like pure basketball, and I feel like that's this is pure basketball's. We've gotten a long-time cattles. Yeah. We're seeing, you know, some great basketball from from Golden State to Milwaukee, it's, it's it's been enjoyable to a point. I would say I, I think this round has been disappointing so far. Because you had Portland even though it's been a couple of good games Portland, Golden State, the inevitable ended up happening. Right. So that's kind of that. That's disappointing to me. I was I was hoping Portland would be able to win that game last night. They had the big lead. I was thinking, hey, this isn't bad. You know if they if they win tonight they win game four. Now, it's too to, and you feel like it's a whole new series and you kind of look at it in a different way. But now since Golden State comes back in that second half. And. Yeah. Rip the heart out of the blazers last night, that series is over as far as Toronto, Milwaukee listened, the raptors. Seriously? Need a great game tonight? They need to respond to what happened on Friday night, and Millie walk gay, they, they've got to be able to fight back and show some life and it's not going to be about Leonard. Peter, we know is going to show up. We know he's oxygen right? What you're going to get out of kuwa-. Exactly this is about a shack calls them the others. You know, this is this is. Lowery? This is Paul. This is this is green because what they've done this postseason. They've done one thing consistently and that is being consistent. You don't know what you're getting Kyle Lowry was great in game one game. Su he went back to being Kyle Lowry. And what we've seen through most of this postseason now, as far as the warriors last night. Peter burns net cattles best week ever as, as far as the warriors to me. Not only was it. The fact that Golden State ripped the heart out of Portland in Portland, failed to respond to me last night, was just the latest reminder of how Draymond green and Golden State is really the perfect marriage. You have few better marriages in sports. Draymond gives this team precisely what this team needs. I don't know if you put green on another team he's the same guy. He's not the primary score. He's not that kind of player. Right. But what he does. Well is exactly what the warriors need him. And yet, and we saw last night. He was the reason why Golden State came back in the game that that is why they had that second half. He once again, was that emotional vehicle to drive them to a comeback, and you look at that marriage, I it's it's fascinating because he's going to be coming up a year from now on free agency, and who knows what's going to happen to him. But we talk about Klay. We talk about staff. We talk about K D. There's green again given the game what it needs giving his team what they need. It's time for straight talk. Brought to you by straight talk wireless. Straight talk wireless. Best phones, best networks, no contracts. And here's the straight talk. When you hear this clip from dre bond green, this is the game changer for me. Right. This is the game changer that Draymond shows me when he is locked in. He's ready to go, and I think he even recognizes it got to a point where I was doing more crying plan and. Unfroze discussing to watch because I felt discussing planning and I just wanted to lock back on the game. I understand that officials are perfect. And you know, I still have conversations with them. Now, you know, when they miss a car, but it's a completely different conversation. You're part of a team. Right. And we all are part of team. Whether you go everyone everyone listened to us on Sunday morning. Right. They're going to the office on Monday. They'll probably try to get a little bit because there's always that one person at the office. That's just the Debbie Downer. Right. You're just like this person's gonna come into my cube or my office had complain about everything that happened over the weekend. Complain about the latest TPS reports that we gotta fill out all of that. Right. And I feel like Draymond almost feeds off the negative energy of Kevin Durant. And I felt like that's what we got a lot of this year. And I think even just that sound by Nick is almost it's almost like, hey, man. You know what? It's okay to have fun and be good. And that's great. You know, who's making a living off of that, Dabo Sweeney and Clemson, they, he took exactly what was happening at Alabama and says, we're gonna do the exact same blueprint that. We're going to have fun and our coaches are going to win a be here. I look at Steve Kerr, I look at Steph. Look at clay. Iggy all these guys. Right. They all seem to be having fun without Kevin Durant. And, and the fact that dream on at aknowledges that post game, I think is, is not going to be talked about enough through national media because I think that's a huge game changer for a couple of things. I'm going to be the Debbie Downer. A little bit here with train on because the guy's been in the league for seven years. And he is the character that he hates to be apparently like he says that last night. And I hope that he keeps this within his his soul. And he believes it with every fiber of his being that he's not going to be whiny anymore, and he realized he had this piffling, but I, I mean, I find it hard to believe that dream on has found a new Draymond and he's going to be basketball Jesus. Yeah. Yeah. He he's, he's been. He's been born again on the basketball court, and all of a sudden he's going to be this nice guy who is who is, you know, slapping, the butts of. Revson having conversation. I tell my wife, look, I did buy laundry. Yeah. Good. Fishes this night this night in history. Draymond realized in acknowledged that he was a crybaby on the floor. So I'm not going to sit there and say, this is a new dream on green, as far as the Kevin Durant element to all of this people sometimes don't realize that he led the league in technical fouls this year. I mean he has become somebody who never stops, crying, and complaining and somebody who gives the officials tough time that carries carries on. Yeah. You tend to take the personality of your leader. Right, and Durant. He is the leader of this team. Now. He's out and they're winning in. You might believe that he he's no longer the leader. But he's still the leader of this team, and they're going to follow along with that. But I do say this Peter, but we're getting wrapped up into all of this Golden State love and the fluidity of the game. And how brilliant and beautiful at all is they're going to eventually need to rent at one point in this postseason. And you know you wonder it's one of those things. Where right now. They're having fun. They're playing a little bit more free. And as you said, it looks like they're enjoying themselves a little bit more. But are they going to have that realization is they're going to come that moment? If Durant doesn't play in the finals where they need Durant. They need that answer. And they don't have it. And then. Oh, well, all the fun in all the live juice, get sucked out of the room because you just realized that ultimately to reach the goal you still need to rent. That's what I'm wondering. Here's the cattles follow him on Twitter at Nick. See radio myself at Peterborough ESPN straight talk wireless nationwide coverage of America's largest and most dependable four. G L T networks. No, LeBron James, right? I know that's going to hurt the ratings. I know it's going to hurt all the headlines all the naysayers Jonah said or Yana said about it, and not having LeBron very intriguing comments. We'll talk to him about that here for him coming up next. Peter burns Nicholson's best week ever on ESPN. Radio dancers pillow for.

"I believe the bridges burned completely to the ground to we're can they achieve remember steps. Not there. So let's see. Steph can come in and help mediate this little bit can Kevin and Draymond achieve some sort of uneasy truce or barely peaceful coexistence like your suggestion. The rest of the way, maybe but let them lose two in a row let Kevin have a bad shooting night. I just I know too much about it. It will bubble back to the surface, and it will boil over. Because now Yahoo is reporting that the exchange on the bench went Draymond telling. Kevin. We don't need you. We won without you leave. But, but you know. Daring him, and that's beyond calling him multiple times the b- were which for me man to man. That's a bridge. That's game over like, you can't take it back. You can't get over it. But the thing is that like like Kevin Iran's brother says is like in the most. I can't remember verbatim. What he said. He's a true colors reveal colors moment. Katie accepted is call the moment Katie decided to come to go to state. What did you think thought of you? He was even as I'm going to benefit from your presence adult respect everybody saying what person, you know, skip they beat you had them three one. You add them down. The do you. How many have you told the story? He's in the parking lot. You say he's near tears calling. Kevin durant? He's the first. Here's the thing. Think about what what you said. It's it's been there and Draymond didn't just as wrong as Katie was. I believe for going off on Draymond because it was. Can make playing it wasn't worth. All that. Also wasn't worth what Draymond Katie. Like just that. Yes. Made you go off in that regard. So here's where I disagree. I disagree that they should trade. Draymond. I also I have my reservations about I don't think boogie could do what Draymond. We know. He wouldn't do a defensive. Defensively, and that's huge because they don't have rim protectors on seven feet tall. He is seven feet. I just think offensively look he's a great individual player. But Draymond does little things moves that ball quickly. Demarcus doesn't do that DaMarcus. Does it run the floor? I mean, drape mine is in large part their point guard. The markets is not the markets might wanna be that. But that's not going to be good for them. If he's bringing the ball up stuff like that. So. Dri doesn't need the ball dream doesn't care two points zero point buggy. Well, he cared one night in Oklahoma City at halftime on a Saturday night gamer that when he went..
"draymond" Discussed on The Jump
"I mean for pretty much the whole nineties are championship. Run was built on what the players wanted. We when against management numerous amount of when it came to play. And we got it between the lines we play each other. We play for the city of Chicago. And I think this is one of those situations where the players are got a look beyond any situation. And this is not one of them situation where they can look ahead because they they have to work out their own affairs. And right now, this could cost them a championship. If k d don't feel comfortable playing with Draymond. Who do you walk away from the the funny thing is so you said you didn't like Dennis, but respect it. What he did on the full? I think three months frustration is born. I don't the level. I don't think. Kevin Durant respects would remind is about at least didn't in that moment. Right. Because in the moment, he's saying, hey, man. You mean the ball? Rachel said reacted as it say, they'll talk to me like I'm Andre Roberson or one of those guys that run all they do is give you the phone. Get out the way, I'm all all NBA player unbelieving playmaker. That's one of the things he said we've been doing this for four or five years here with a lot of success with or without you. So don't talk to me about stuff like that. But I want to go to something that I heard Isaiah Thomas say the old. Oh. I thought I'm going to give him credit. You hear what he said was obviously dream on. You got to stay within the lines. You can't go off like that. But also, Kevin Durant. You come back to the bench. The game's not over win lose a game on that. We're going to overtime this moment. As a leader you say guys. All right. We don't get him here. No problem be uplifting instead of browbeating, and that I thought was a huge kind of like inflection point where they could have got that under control the other thing. Also is if you're gonna browbeat somebody don't let it be that too because you know. Laws always surprised to dream on customer. This is a man who went out his coach game. It had to be physically restrained. So Kevin, Drake. You gotta know that dog might don't be acting like that just a puppy over there that dog bite. Bitten lifetime nine cents a day. When he said the end of those commentary Rammer he said all the other twenty nine teams in the league. If you're waiting for us to self destruct. You got another thing coming. We're not gonna meet us. You're going to have to beat us. That was interesting. It speaks to what we're talking about. With the bulls with the shack Koby, Lakers, they say it's not going to be them the breaks them up. That's what Draymond saying. We will have over the coming months. That happens is this. All right. Looks like they're not going to bring everybody back. If that happens, then they broke it up. Well, we'll see how dramatic it. Five days of our lives. Baby coming up. What should we take away from the Sixers losing to the magic and Jimmy Butler debuts getting into meanwhile, chime in on that? But first it's time for our distant replay this date in two thousand featuring Vince Carter Latrell Sprewell. Swertz coach. Nick highlight. No way. Good. That. Game win. Glenn? He his. He saw rims..
"draymond" Discussed on Jalen and Jacoby
"Chances. Your opportunities to win a championship you'll ruin the opportunities of a potential three peat because guess what Jacoby as we both know in heated situations, are we really surprised that Draymond green. And Kevin Durant got into it. Can't hear ran first of all this so much to unpack your so let's start with what you started with. So you're saying that the warriors organization is essentially siding with K D in this and saying the Draymond green was in the wrong. Draymond green deserves to be suspended. Suspending Draymond green. As a message to Kevin Durant. We have your back. We're your family. You're not gonna find this sort of support at another organization. That's what you're saying. This is that big poster of Kevin Durant on the side of a billboard. This is that please stay K D this early in the season. I've never in my ten years of India experience. Hurt him anything over a player dispute? You can't timeout. So here's the thing. I hadn't heard anything like this over player disputes. And I'm sure that the dispute got much worse than what we saw on the court. My theory is this that there was some lines crossing the locker room. There was some behavior displayed that the organization that kept the drain on forced the organizations hand saying if we don't discipline him for this. Then we're saying it's okay to do that that he said something that he tried to do something physical that something happened in that locker room where they had to do something. And that's something was suspended one game. I got to think how wild that locker room was last year. And obviously, we don't know the exact details of it. But I remember seeing rumors NBA. Locker rooms fights happen. Screaming matches happen coach player. Claire yelling at coach. These things are common in NBA locker rooms. But when they spill out when there's a player like Kevin Durant in and you feel like could be the straw that breaks the Kevin's backer. Maybe this could be the straw that reels the Camelback inn because everything that we know in C and Phil says that Kevin Durant will be leaving after the warriors championship. Now, you got to get to the championship. And maybe this is implied in which they can keep Kevin Durant as a warrior, Kevin. We will do what ever you want? And I get Draymond gray Mona's fed up. Why Jacoby because if you think about the warriors they are selfless Basak vice money they circle shots. There is a warriors way in which they work in Kevin Durant. I was working the clippers game that day. Kevin Durant broke the warriors way. Kevin Durant without Steph curry on the floor. Kevin durant? Just went back to. Being Kevin Durant. The best thing he knows give me the basketball get out my way, and he goes in scores. And this is Kevin Durant entire time. I like this. You're saying that it's not just about the last play that the all of us in sports media all of us volume where all folks on that last play for you at the game, you're saying that wasn't just the last plane. It was the entirety of the game without Steph there it was Katie reverting back to ice. Oh, Katie thunder Katy and dream on green finally coming to a culmination in the last play. So it was really just bubbled up throughout the game. Is that what you're saying? Absolutely. The ball movement with stagnant. It was not the same. They ran in pushed in transition. But there was nothing special. Okay. And I get it. They beat the Spurs year without Steph. But when Katie was there without Steph. He's a saw this opportunity to be Katie. And he did what he knew was best. Now, are you?.
"draymond" Discussed on First Things First
"That's why he got suspended. That's why you have someone like step come the Draymond house because drain Mont would not let it go. Right. And this we'll continue this is not over with one thing you both touched on was the impending free agency to both Katie and to drain on how much of this is because like you said they want to protect him. But the also got Draymond free agency. Coming up the players everyone in. The basketball world except for Golden State fan seem to recognize the very real reality. This can be this likely is Kevin Durant. Last year is a warrior, the players know that we're the players frustration is is that Kevin Durant has just added fuel to that fire. Kevin durant? Could've taken a lot of approaches could have taken the approach LeBron had last year. Which is I'm not addressing any questions about this at all. He could have taken the approach that Kyrenia now have been disingenuous which is a I love it here. I wanna be your long term. There's a lot of things he could have done. Instead, he took the Dwight Howard approach when Dwight Howard was more Landau magic. Which is adding more noise to it at every turn to where it is consuming the season. No we was before the season. It was he openly talked about what it would be like to be Nikki he talked about these things. So that is clearly rubbed a lot of his teammates the wrong way. But he has that he has that. Right. When you brought him there for the first year like he has that right to do that. So. Now, all the sudden you don't like what he's doing. And he he's basically done the same thing in his first couple of years. I think that's where the annoyance comes from his teammates that last year was the is Kevin Durant gonna stay with us tour. And now they're in part two of that. Kevin Durant has a right to do what he wants to do the reason why didn't get upset when he left. Okay. See winter because he had the right to do what he wants to do to think that we're going to leave this conversation. And this is Kevin Durant fall oddly. We're wrong doing that. What? Kevin durant? Do besides call for the bowl from just peer basketball standpoint. We get the rebound. We're it's tiger. We got time out. We've side we're going to get a better shot. If we keep it moving trae decides not to get me to basketball terms all over and I get the huddle and say you should have given me that ball. Tell me where it. Kevin Durant was wrong. I'm not see I I'm not saying that. Kevin durant? Did anything wrong? What I'm trying to do is lay out for the audience. What why a simple on court dispute boiled over? To such levels and where Kevin Durant, right or wrong. He has a right Dan Lewis free agency Avary once and the players on that team that have won a championship without him. Have a right to be rubbed the wrong way. By all those other players were drafted by Golden State when you decide to go outside the family and you hire hired gun. You're at the mercy of whatever he wants to do. Anyway, like, you can't convince Kevin Durant. He stayed there for the rest of his career his legacy and gold Saint will never be the same. Steph would never be the same as well. Never be the same as collect. And I think that's where someone during lunch. Frustration comes right as we were great before you. And now you're now you're now you're talking to me in some type away. That strikes me is what happens on is sensitive short in the first season. Kevin durant? Was there if they were in the same situation. Kevin Durant would've asked for the bowl. All right now what he'd been wrong in your number one. Also now because they've won a couple. So now he's wrong in doing that. Does this affect you think? What what manager decisively you with Draymond green? Whether he wants to stay or not, listen, Marcus Thompson. I'm going to quote, his article again because it's swell source article have right on this..
"draymond" Discussed on First Take
"We know it's bad when because he's got restraint you, but for me where it really resonates is that I was saying and I asked this question. Wait a minute. Draymond is an emotional, dude. This is something that y'all have applauded religiously in two thousand and sixteen in the locker room in Oklahoma City. Draymond green M F. Steve Kerr the tone. Don't say another MFN word to me. I kill you. Okay. And all of this other stuff had to be restrained. And this is from going after the coach he didn't get suspended then. So if we can. If we attribute so much of the emotional stuff to Draymond green as we have done in the past what warranted this, and that was when I was told that Draymond green brought up the fact that Kevin Durant hasn't committed long term that. Kevin Durant is contemplated walking out the door at the end of this season, basically questioning his commitment to this team. And that is where folks felt he really really crossed the line after the game either during after the game. I don't recall when either dollar showing Livingston and Klay Thompson all spoke in Klay Thompson reminded the team. According to what I was told the only people that can beat us is ourselves. Nobody can mess with us but us so let's keep that amount. Let's stay together. But that's essentially what has happened. And really what it comes down to max just to put a Bill on it. Bottom line is the most agree GIS part and all of this in a lot of people's eyes wasn't the language because Draymond green. Typically does that he was off. Kilty wouldn't let it go. Kevin durant? And let's go win this game. We got a game to win the overtime. Let's go win Draymond set f that and still kept going and kept going after him. And in the process brought up the fact that impending free agency is coming up in the middle of the game. And and people thought that crossed the line. This is like the original hot take show. Right. Like people talking about hot takes. We do a lot more than that. But people think about hot takes what does that really mean? It means you've come to a conclusion that is counterintuitive for everyone else. So you state the conclusion rose, what are you talking about? And then you chop it up and get into an argument in the made it and all that. So when I say something like K D is maybe the fifth best player in the world right now that's called that's considered a hot take. Because it's what what are you talking about? Then I'll go through LeBron and Kawai and AD and the Greek freak and say Kay D is somewhere below LeBron in the mix with the others. Maybe as low as five we'll see by the end of the year. Everyone loses their minds. I think I hate on K D when I say that LeBron is way better than Katy which is people think I'm hating on K D. Let me give you an ice cold take right now. Just completely. This is whatever K D is one of he's in this group of all time greats scores in the most elite category with Michael Jordan. Wilt Chamberlain and Kareem Abdul Jabbar, maybe Kobe Bryant, maybe a couple of others. Maybe he is that great a score. And he's also turned into a top ten certainly maybe top five defensive player in basketball. He's an all time great in his prime dream on. It doesn't matter if he has one foot in one foot out, even if you believe that's true K D with one foot out the door is better than almost every other a basketball player who has ever lived dream on. This is hard for him to swallow. I'm sure 'cause he's the heart and soul of the team. What really makes the warriors the warriors because they were the warriors before D got there is Steph one and dream onto what is ushered in the modern era of basketball in terms of style of play is Steph one because he's a mobile artillery unit. He could shoot from such distance. And the ball doesn't stick with them passes. Unselfish and dream onto can not only switch on all five positions can go off five positions. Legitimately and shoot at three..
"draymond" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"This is not a stand Van Gundy Wednesday, we've got a soap opera for men happening and Golden State, but he will talk to us about it tomorrow from New York. We will get to that soap opera and Golden State in a second. Because things just got interesting and fun. God bless him. Gather around the TV, boys. This is so Popper for men of the highest order. Appear to have suspended Draymond green. Because Kevin Durant. Sensitive. Yes. Well, Kevin Durant. One of the ball down the stretch of a game. And Raymond said. No, I, but what I'm saying is the drones been running that locker room for a long time. I think he almost fought Steve Kerr certainly Steve Kerr came out of yelling meeting with Draymond green and say, yeah, he's our fire. That's what we need that Shaun Livingston was talking about. That's just team spirit. But Kevin Durant has spent the last eighteen months on a tour of sensitivity. He's extra sensitive, and they just took their leader because Draymond green. While not their best player has been their leader. They just took their leader. And they told him your suspended because he said bad things to Kevin Durant. It is interesting. But I do think like Kevin Durant thinking. Hey, draymond. You're the guy that called me after you lost. Lebron the final you call me, you recruited me. I'm here. Gimme the ball. But this is what happens, and I'm sure Draymond thinking. Hey, we want seventy two before you. We want to seventy three before you not even thinking, I'm sure Draymond has said that that's what we we knew all of this those got that's why instead of. Killing this team for two years. You might want it to marvel at it. Because usually these eagles don't play together entry on also discount. So everyone else can get paid guy. And I'm sure he's not throwing that in anyone's face. So we have plenty to talk about there. But they've just been shocking allegations made all around the show during just the commercial break. I heard someone say that Cincinnati is now ranked because the college football committee just wants in primetime UCF playing a ranked team. I heard someone else say that Zion. Williamson's shouldn't be the most famous guy on the Duke team because he's not the best player. And that the other guys on the Duke team should be really upset about Zion. Williamson getting all of the pub are these all, Mike? Yeah. This is all me. Yep. Trying to splinter the blue devils. Mike Ryan was trying during the break to create the it's not enough that it's happening Golden State. He's sitting here making all the arguments as to why the team should hate Zion. Williamson because he's getting all of the pup the best player. I saw sportscenter Zion and the blue devils gave me the number two pick as opposed to number one. It's the novelty and the Duke blue devils and we've known him. We've watched him since high school. I liked that as a team in those I in in the blue devils. Nineteen sixties our power band does. Right. Is it nineteen sixties or I could just picture Zion and the blue devils protesting Vietnam. Really because I've got it being sort of blues iw. Zion and the blues devils. Maybe that's what confused..
"draymond" Discussed on The Stephen A. Smith Show
"I wanna give him some love to now. Let me get to the real story from last night's game. Lou Williams, misses a shot about six seconds left in regulation score. Todd. Draymond green grabs the rebound. Kevin Durant is slapping for the ball. Draymond green ignores. Him dribbles the ball up the court trying to make a play here is right here. He's trying to make the play. Where an ignorance Kevin Durant Clapper for the ball, essentially. Doesn't isn't able to get a shot off because he gets stripped. And obviously the game goes into overtime Draymond green. And Kevin Durant thereafter had to be separated because Kevin Durant clearly said something to him about it and Draymond green. Didn't like it. Or appreciate it and was willing to get into his face. 'cause that's what dream on does. And had to be restrained by DeMarcus boogie cousins of all people. Only say that about we not saying that the slight DeMarcus cousins in any way, we only saying it because he is a known as the most cool calm collected individual in the world. But boogie cousins is a bad brother healthy averages twenty eight and twelve you can't tell them anything and he's a rough ride aid scared and nobody either so it's to be respected. But here is the point. Kevin durant? And Draymond green. We're getting into it. Andrea dollar has to tell Kevin Durant chill out. Boogie cousins has to tell Draymond green to kill out to chill out. And that is that I will tell you. This arguments happened is not that big of a deal. I didn't think either was agreed Asli role. But let's be clear if Kevin Durant is clapping for the ball and your dream on green you give. Kevin durant? Damn ball. This is one of the greatest scores. We have ever seen in NBA history. I don't think Draymond was wrong per se in this regard. If you were dribbling the ball up the court because you aren't at forward that serves as the playmaker for the warriors. So I can understand instinctually you grabbing a rebound and pushing the ball up the floor. What I'm seeing in response is that it's six seconds. Kevin Durant clearly can handle the ball. He clearly could pull up from thirty. We've seen him do it in an NBA finals in LeBron James face. I might add. You get Kevin Durant. The damn ball. I don't think it was agreed GIS. I don't think it was intentional on Draymond green. What he was doing. What he always does which is handling rot passing the ball try to make place and in this case, he messed up. I don't think it was any agreed this here. But if I have to pick a side, I'm going to say, you get Kevin Durant. The damn ball. Was this argument indicative of something else that's going on that we don't know about. I don't think so. Look. Kevin Durant may end up leaving the Golden State Warriors. But guess what? He's there and since he's been there. He's done nothing, but won championships and in the process of being a two-time champion and the two time NBA finals MVP, let's remember that one of the people who recruited him which drained mongering. Yes. Steph curry and Klay Thompson and Audrey good dollar all joined in the Hampton five. But in the end, what this comes down to is that they all recruited dre mongering. I'm sorry. Kevin durant? Kevin Durant has answered the call and as paid them back in dividends. Now. Kevin Durant may choose to lead. I don't believe it's for one second. It's because you're gonna hate dream on dream house. Go get in your face, j Maher dre market irritate the hell out of you. I'm telling you right now, the guy covering MBA, Draymond green is one of the best people I've ever covered in this sport. He's as real in his authentic, and it's unfair make as they come..
