Joey Sulipeck Investigated for Tweet Against Draymond Green

"Let's talk about Joey solo pack. Now, you know Joey, you were a meteorologist, your weather guy here in the Memphis area for a very long time before switching over and doing the right thing and coming to radio. Exactly. Exactly. I knew joy for I've known Joey for over 20 years. We did not work at the same station, but I would see him at conferences. I would see him locally and he's always been professional. He's the kind of guy that will walk up and ask you and know, you know, your family's name, how they're doing. He's the kind of guy that you want in the market. So he's a good guy. Very much so. So he's a big Memphis Grizzlies fan, and of course, there was a lot going on. It was a pretty tense rivalry between the warriors and the grizzlies. And he wrote a tweet. Yes, he did. And this goes all the way back to May 7th, and this was when the grizzlies were in the second round against the Golden State Warriors and draymond green is a troublemaker on the court. He runs his mouth a lot, he'll push, he'll nudge whatever he can to get an advantage. And one of the grizzlies players had just gotten ejected for the first time that they had mouthed off to the official. Joy writes, chew on this, draymond runs his knuckle dragging open mouth all game long, but mild mannered, Kyle Anderson disputes one call and gets ejected. Next level, Jack assery. That's it. So basically, he was saying the guy's a Neanderthal. Yes, okay. All right. Well, well, the local sports guy for the commercial appeal. Got ahold of that tweet and turned it into this big racial controversy that literally went nationwide. Everybody was talking about poor Joey solo pet who in the aftermath apologized. He should not have apologized. He did nothing wrong, and then deleted his account, he should not have done that. He did nothing wrong.

"We're still talking about the fall out of the draymond green kevin durant situation the show. They did in which they both said. Hey it's bob myers and steve kerr's fault why. The dynasty broke up because of the way they handled our disagreement that we had in two thousand eighteen as time has gone on like you see this look draymond. Green is a smart guy. He knows the impact of his words. Is this dream on pulling james harden going you know what whatever conversation we've had the at the olympics when everybody's hanging out. Hey i want out golden state now. Because i want to get someplace else. 'cause you're blowtorch and your gm at your coach something. That was three years ago. I i've not heard tentatively that that was the purpose behind what he said and there remains the possibility that it was simply. I wanna clear my name. And i wanna do something. That's explosive on my first podcast as i prepare myself for my post my post playing career. i do. I will tell you that it did not sit well at all with the warriors and it shouldn't that from either. Yeah from either one of them and it it. It does undermine their authority and moving forward trying to trying to put this team together.

"draymond " Discussed on First Take

"And how come his name wasn't mentioned at some point is especially when it comes to steph curry. We have an obligation to ask the question. Where the hell was a while. All of this was happening. He is the face of the franchise. I'm just saying well. You said a whole lot there and let me just respond to one piece of it. Which is what you're pointing out to me seems to be that. There is a role for more traditional media in terms of interviewing athletes. The setting the kind of questions that might get asked and the way you can. You would hold their feet to the fire if it was someone interviewing them from. Espn for example. And that doesn't mean that. When i say it's almost like a new era of media that athletes interviewing athletes a form like that where the athlete feels protected. Where they feel safe where they feel also which in one way is not great because there are certain things may be off limits or may not be brought up but on the other hand you will get honest moments. You might not get if they weren't interviewed by another athlete yes. They're controlling the narrative. Moore's lebron does as as many who are now. Involved in invested in their own media companies can control. The narrative and i would agree stephen. That doesn't mean the presence of draymond. Green doesn't crowd out traditional media. But it doesn't mean they're not mutually exclusive. It's adding a dimension that didn't previously exist. You can ask an athlete anything you want but to get a candid response response that that illuminates their feelings about things will usually not be the same as what we saw in. That interview win remind interview. Excuse me max. One less commercial break here guys will get back to this black history. Always the podcast. Come check out the new black history. Always podcast with me clinton. Yates we at the undefeated telling stories that remind people who are as a culture is a living breathing entity in all parts of american society. It's not just history books and social media y'all we contain multitudes and everyone deserves to be heard so listen follow and let's alba conversation. Listen or follow black history always wherever you get your podcast. All right steven. We'll get your final thoughts here on the sit down between k. d. and draymond green. It was twenty four minutes riveting. And i just wanna highlight again. I do find it interesting. And i think it was you who mentioned this earlier that there was no mention of steph curry klay thompson. They just specifically spoke about the brass so that it didn't. They didn't get into whether the teammates got involved or which side they were on etc. Not sure if that was strategic or they just didn't go there and the conversation but any closing remarks that you want to make one number one. I'm unapologetically not a whole klay thompson as accountable. He's had some other issues like his injuries to deal with. He's been incredibly preoccupied remember. He got injured in the same series. That did the draymond got. I'm sorry. katie got injured. And so he's been preoccupied over the last couple of years this is steph curry's fair franchising is the face of the franchise. All i'm saying is that where was he while all of this was going on since katie brought up the comparisons of watching last dance watching players. Get on scottie pippen. Incoming together matter of fact. Max bill cartwright you have people in there crying to scotty pippin like how could you do this to us. That's how hurt they were. That's how down by him. Nobody said anything to to drop off from a player's perspective that we know of okay. So that's the. I'm just saying the question i don't know what steph curry did. I just know that. I find it conspicuous that his name isn't even mentioned in any of this. That's that's that's shady to me. I don't trust that some hard golden state warriors. And not say the word steph right. The other outside of that i just want to applaud. My brother's draymond green and k. d. Listen and they don't have to do this. And you're doing podcasts. And all that stuff. But i appreciate the honesty and i think it's a lesson for all of us in the media to recognize. Listen when you got cats that are going to take the time to talk to you. Not that they were doing that here because they were talking to each other and not the media but prioritize be trustworthy when they tell you something quarterback in its proper context and guard that. Because that's how you see. I can be hardcore and the reason i could be hard hardcore because i know all you got to do is pick up the phone or see me face to face and you have a conversation. I swear to god. If i'm wrong i'm wrong and if i'm wrong publicly i'm not gonna apologize privately. I'm apologized publicly because that's what men do and when you have those kind of conversations and you cultivate that relationship and you make sure you let them understand. I'm trying to let you tell a story. i'm not trying to tell it for you. Then they'll be more receptive to communicating with you moving forward to be honest with you. I'm just giving you a trick of the trade. Because that's how i've gotten to where that i am because you can say what you want about me you don't have to. I don't give a damn who likes me or who hates me. Or who loves me or whatever but i damn sure care about trust there is no i repeat no one decade. Look me and my face ever in my career spanning nearly thirty years and say that i was trust worthy. I say what i mean. I mean what i say in this to your face not just behind your back and they respect that and we just gotta make sure that we respect them as well by appreciating their honesty and candor as i said it felt like a turning point to me. That's how significant i felt. The interview was k. D. is a superstar. Not only maybe the best athlete in the world but but a fascinating guy Who is worthwhile to listen to. I mentioned all the smoke like matt barnes steven jackson. These guys do really good work really interesting stuff. But it's even another level when the principal characters are still active discussing. What just happened with that level of candor it was. It was a bombshell and everyone knew it would be an and it lived up to the billing absolutely and i even more respect for kevin durant just the human demand and how fascinating and how much depth doing that interview for by everybody..

"When the olympics start will be the most talented team in tokyo. Hands down no question. Most talented team in tokyo with the roster that they have but this is like a five alarm fire right now howard. This loss to nigeria. I don't care if they win the rest of these pre olympic games which will take place through next sunday. This has to make you nervous if you're a fan of the team because not only is it this. The loss to nigeria. But you go back two years ago at the world championships where you had a us team. That was good. Didn't have probably better team now than they were back in two thousand nineteen but all nba players. They finished seventh. They've been seventh at the world championships. You have the seventh-place finish the loss of nigeria. How concerned are you howard beck about. Usa basketball. It's just an exhibition game. Chris oh no no. It's not just an exhibition game. Stop this team was thrown together over the last however many weeks they had what like three practices. I think i'll ever. Us team is thrown together. What are you talking about. There's no team. There's no no mid season practices for usa basketball. No but the nigerian team has been practicing. What i'm saying is some of the play in the nba though wants win the nba nba. A few of them play in the nba but that team has had time together more so than the team. Sorry brown coaching. that team. That i missed was that a facsimile of mike brown on the bench all season long. What what are we talking about. The warriors have been out for like two months kris k. Okay so two months. that's what matters. That's that's the number three three practices. Also they're still missing. I believe at least three guys because they're playing in the finals right now. Booker middleton chris paul get it. Yes not chris. Ball's not playing a holiday with the the what holland is your holiday. Those those guys will matter especially given that middleton and holiday are to the better perimeter defenders that that team. Usa has and if you look at the rest of team usa's roster. I don't see a ton of great defenders. There there are a few. I think those three guys by the way are going to be exhausted by the time they get to. They may well be. They may will be so. We're going to judge them. Judging when their whole judge when the games matter to strange to me like we don't judge nba teams based on the preseason but we judge team usa based on these exhibition games. That they do going into international competition. I feel like it's thirty. One point favorites. Why why is there betting line on a freaking exhibition better training but a little league baseball. Now country degenerates damn right. I didn't mean chris i'm with. Let's go monday. Nigeria money line. I just. I can't get too excited about this. If they lose the rest of the exhibitions does that mean something. Yeah that might be alarming if they're if they're still struggling to find some cohesion. That could be alarming. But i mean the talent is obviously their talent alone doesn't win on the international stage in style of game is different team ball matters. Shooting matters like yeah. There's a bunch of budget stuff that comes into play. But i i find the panic over this loss or at least the outcry to be a little bit much. So you don't take into account the seventh-place finish in two thousand nineteen. I mean that to me. It's the it's not just as game. The totality of it right. Like and i don't know howard like so in the early two thousands the world kind of caught up to the us ninety to ninety six thousand us. Gold maps then comes the two thousand two world championships in indianapolis and that's seven. The place finish was one of the worst worst outcomes in at least recent usa history. They got it together after that. They hired jerry colangelo. They bringing mike chef ski. They get their act together. Two thousand six two thousand eight then. They run off. Three consecutive years are three consecutive cycles of gold. Medals is argon. Made that like the world's caught up again that somewhere along the way and the last four or five years. The rest of the world has once again caught up usa basketball. I'm trying to understand this. I mean that's close games in those olympics cycles. No question about it. But i can't imagine the oh eight. Twelve or sixteen team losing nigeria. I can't exhibition or otherwise. I can't see it happening. No team and the and the one that followed it were built around like lebron koby. Carmelo enjoying wait. I mean that that groups at another level like as good as this group is that we're seeing right now as talented as they are after k. D. tatum's really good damian. Lillard is great. I mean come arbit- tatum. Bill lillard auto bio levin. Draymond dream ends up there in years but one has won some things. Jeremy grant jeremy grant zach living out of like. These are guys who have done anything in the nba yet. But they're all stars most they're they're also but are they to level of lebron kobe now but do you think is that what you're saying then is that what you're saying to be at the level you need to have like i'm saying the crop to win. I'm saying that if we're going to start comparing the twenty twenty one team to the twenty eight a two thousand eight two thousand twelve teams there is. There is not an equivalent right now. Lebron kobe laurent cobaine weight. And plus what we what. We called olympic. Mellow like carmelo. Didn't have the success in the nba. That some of his teammates did but carmelo in terms of talent level and certainly has resume like that group was at a whole other level. That group is a different level than jason. Tatum bam outta bios. Zach levine. Okay so not saying that you necessarily should have to have that level of time firepower to win an exhibition game against nigeria. Or anybody else. But i am saying comparing usa to itself different iterations of team usa. This one is not that one. This is not as dominant group as the ones we saw in eight and two thousand twelve. It just isn't what do you do like. What's the solution here. Like i mean i jerry. Colangelo deserves an enormous amount of credit for rebuilding that program when it was at. Its nadir mitra chefs. He comes in enormous amount of credit for what they did. But as we sit here in twenty twenty one like it's almost to me howard like the usa basketball rebuilding. The program became cool. Like lebron wanted to do it. Chris paul like dwayne wade. These guys wanted to do it and then they did it. And i think playing for usa basketball didn't become quite as cool as it was fifteen years ago. Like is that what has to happen like does not need to have like a fifth place finish in tokyo for all of a sudden the next generation of a-list stars wherever that may be in two thousand twenty four to come back into the mix and is that the only way this team can win. I mean i think we need to pay attention to the overall context like obviously one. These olympics were supposed to happen a year ago. They're delayed a year because of covid got durant out of it though like that right. It's questionable whether these the olympic should be happening at all still but along the way because of these back to back brutal seasons and everything else like team. Usa doesn't have james harden right now. Doesn't have anthony davis because of the injury doesn't have steph curry doesn't have kyrie irving doesn't have lebron kawai again. If your argument is that the second or third tier it sounds like sounds like insulting. Somehow but if you're saying that the next wave believe after those guys should still be good enough to dominate on the world stage. Maybe but if the point is that the team as best are they still. Are they still able to win. Gold fairly easily. Your probably but a bunch of them aren't on this team right now because of injuries and just the stress of the last year or two so this this is not necessarily representative of the best of the best right now. It just isn't and yes. They should still be good enough to win. Yes the world has caught up to some extent. No the the group that at nigeria's put it put out there last week. Does not leap off the page improbably. Us should've still want it. But again i exhibition game after like three practices. Let's see what happens with the rest of this. This schedule out brought mellow back. I mean he's not what he was four years ago. Eight years ago twelve years ago but the guy knows how to play international basketball. He might have sat. maybe. I guess. I didn't really. I assume that he just want to keep. He didn't kind of like four formerly re retire from the olympics. But it'd be pretty much says like i'm done like lebron kinda did to get talked into it. I feel like. I don't know if i was if i was the usa team would try really hard to get carmelo blake because his style. Whatever it is to the nba is perfect for the national basketball. He's a really good or national basketball player. On this subject damian lillard. He spoke for the first time. Since the hiring of chauncey billips. Only listen to what little had to say about his future in portland. I'm prepared to go in and do my job every year. Like hopefully we make strides over direction and could become a better team a new coach notice. That's where i am. What soured it sounds like. Lillard is at least nominally on board with going back to the blazers. But if i'm a team out there with assets. I don't listen to that response and say well it's over damian. Lillard is back on the same page with the portland trailblazers. If i'm a team with assets i hold onto those assets because it feels to me like the blazers might be one like sixteen to start from blowing that whole thing up with louis mccollum on the way out the door so get the sense now. That seems more likely than not that damian lillard at blazers training camp. He's in ablaze uniform. He starts the season with the portland trailblazers. But if it doesn't work with chauncey billips early and you get close that trade deadline. It wouldn't surprise me at all to see portland decide. Look we've got a. We've got to do something here and opened the door for damian lillard trade. What do you think. I think that nothing has changed. I think that his remarks last week because he sounded a little bit lukewarm. Or just you know you hear one of two things. Well you want to hear one thing if you're a portland trail blazers fan or if you're just looking for any indication that lillard is all in your you want to hear him say listen. I know things are rough right now. But i'm all in you know this is. This is where. I want to be you to repeat all the usual talking points that you hear from players in his position and that we've heard from bradley beal that we used to hear from james harden houston. Which is a win in phil in city fill in the blank with the city. I want to win here. I don't wanna go somewhere else. You know we're going to get this right blah blah. He didn't go down the usual list. And so i think it left open. Some interpretation but getting has changed like the disappointment was clear when the season ended. Some of the things have happened since including obviously the the the train wreck away they went about the the coaching search and lillard. Being caught in the crossfire. There at feeling heat from fans about chauncey billips being selected and so. I don't think we should expect he's going to be rah. Rah right now The trailblazers have a lot of work to do. But we also have not even hit the summer yet. Like there's the draft hasn't happened yet. Free agency hasn't happened yet. There's there's a lot of work to be done. And i think if you're damian lillard which you're probably doing is internally saying here's what i need to see happen externally saying you know what let's let's wait and see i mean you see. He can't he can't say publicly the same things that he's telling say neal o'shea right about what the the state of the roster i i would think that there are some very impassioned debates or discussions being held behind closed doors about what they need to get this thing right and if they can't get it right the he might shift is his stance about staying there long term. But that hasn't happened yet that we know of. What do you think the most interesting potential conversation is amongst players over these next four weeks like i'm kind of curious what jason tatum bradley beal talk about. Tatum and beal close friends dating back to their highschool days both went to the same high school bill with something of a mentor to jason. Tatum actually got him involved with his trainer. Drew hanlin which helped. Tatum elevate his his personal skills and they've talked about how happy they are to be playing together. Played the all star game together for the first time beal last year of his contract. Like you know we've seen these conversations yield real tangible conversation. You'd like to be a fly on the wall on for any of these guys in the next couple of weeks. Yeah i mean look we. We have a history now going back over a decade. If we're to believe that the that the heels were formed in part through team usa activities. You know which is true which is true. That's that's yielded an extra things guy. You know guys who you mentioned. Tatum and bill because they were already friends but guys also become friends through this experience right and then they start getting the ideas about playing together. Like oh hey. This is a lot of fun. Let's do this again in the nba. So there's i'm i'm sure some of that is is happening. It always does. Who else in that group. I mean man. If any of these guys that'd be trying to recruit bam out a bio but he's too early in his in his contract with miami to pry him loose from there And you know the heater still a pretty potent team but you know jimmy butler is up there in miles and outta bios future won't necessarily be there forever. That's the way it goes in the nba. I think tatum has the potential to be like the biggest recruiter. They're like he's about to start the first year of his max level extension. He can recruit bill. But like you can also does damian lillard like. It's great to play in boston. I love it here. Answer some questions of my have a playing on the east coast for the first time. Like i think data might be boston's best asset at this point. Yeah again some of this comes down to bradley. Beal's coming up to that point where he has the leverage to task out because of his contract lillard under contract for several more years and so he's not in that position. So what if it says. Like i need to go like. I don't foresee the blazers being no finish your contract. Just don't see it. i think right. And they would work with him on a deal to sure but directing it is harder so beal can use the leverage of his free agency to say well if you send me to team x. I'm not gonna resign there. Which then blows up that deal and he can direct himself to the team he really wants to be at lillard would have a harder time to doing that. Because he doesn't have free agency looming two to play that card. Yeah well i encourage any reporter. That's in tokyo tatum. Beal and lillard talking to each other. Just take a picture and then let the internet go wild crazy because it will unquestionably last thing for you. Howard the breaking news. This week in the coaching ranks. Is that jamal moseley is headed to orlando moseley of course last with dallas. A really well respected assistant coach there. Who was a candidate for that. Maverick job before. It went to jason kidd my immediate reaction to that higher howard beyond i think being an excellent choice for orlando is that we're gonna look at at moseley and jason kidd on parallel tracks. The next couple of years moseley. There was a strong case to be made that he should have been elevated to that head. Coaching job he'd been considered for other head coaching jobs. Before most recently in new york he had by all accounts a great relationship with luka doncic i understand bringing kit in he's got a history with dallas and as riccar lau said publicly having a player that played the game like kid and having a player that plays the game like don-shik make some sense to pair those two guys together. But there's always going to be as i watched these two situations unfold. I'm gonna wonder you know. Did the mavericks make the right choice. Leading jamaa moseley go and bringing jason kidd in and there's so many variables in this the first being at orlando's in step one or maybe even steps zero of a massive rebuild right there in the negatives right now. I think there's still maybe more fat to trim on that roster before they really bottom out. Yeah and you know you talk about trying to build around. You know markelle foltz. And and jonathan isaac jonathan isaac for so long. They're getting hurt and he's a great player but they've loved writing in a weird way john stays healthy. He's still more of a complementary store right like he's he's a potentially defensive player of the year at some point. He's not a guy who you're building an offense around though and marquel foltz okay. He he got himself back on track in orlando. He has a career now where he didn't have one but he's not a foundational building block. Come on like that's crazy so the roster doesn't have much talent jamal. Moseley's is coming into a situation. Which a lot of first time head coach is committed to which is all right. There's a lot of work to do so You're gonna have to do a lot of development. You're going to have to take a lotta lumps in the win loss column. It's gonna be rough going for the first year or two or maybe three. Let's see how they can get things going. But you know as it has been a certain other like kenny. Atkinson came to look a completely hopeless situation in brooklyn but was known as development coach in atlanta. And sure enough. Everybody who went there. Joe harris spencer. Dinwiddie jared allen versus lower. First round picks. Guys who were you know whether they were reclamation projects whether they were low picks everybody seems to get better the second they went to brooklyn and play kenny atkinson and his staff congenial. Moseley have the kind of effect in orlando can the front office. Get him to kind of guys. That will thrive in that in that kind of environment and carve out careers from cells and carbon identities. Jamal moseley has a lot going for him. And we've heard like many great things about it but we often hear great things about assistant coaches who don't end up panning out so i always. We have to caution ourselves on these things. Because i thought. Brian shaw was gonna be a great head coach and he was. Everybody loved him all the players sung as praises when he was associate head coach under frank. Vogel indiana he goes to denver probably just the wrong guy at the wrong time but he hasn't had another shot since then but that went really badly. Brett brown was really great in in some respects for the for the early years of the process and then suddenly. It seemed like they'd hit some sort of ceiling. Eager kokoschka of had been talked about for years is a great assistant. Coach didn't work out. Swells head coach in phoenix. David dale bumpy ride in memphis and then disastrous in new york. We just don't know like luke walton. Another example like there are plenty of coaches who as their when their assistance. We hear and see the best of them and then you know some of them be go on it and have great success coaches. I mean tyler has been fantastic. Mike malone has been fantastic money williams. Nick nurse dwayne casey a lotta longtime assistance. Get their shot and then you know it. It works out in a dozen. It's all contextual. It's all just the opportunity you have the thing for dallas is. They went with a guy who has experienced jason kit. That experience was not necessarily good experience. Like i think most people around the would look at what he did in milwaukee in brooklyn and say. I'm going to steer clear. Maybe you'd rather have the the unproven. Jamal moseley versus the somewhat proven jason kidd but. I don't think we'll know what the right choice was there for a while yet. Because it's it's gonna take some time before we can evaluate moseley as head coach. I maybe jason kidd learned something in two years as an assistant. I mean that happens. You know working with lebron for entire for two entire seasons working under frank vogel maybe picked up some things that'll be useful to him as a head coach. Moseley to me. The key is giving him time. Like you've got to be committed to moseley for a minimum. I think of three years and more likely five years. And then you see what you have in head coach. You mentioned gore. I mean it's worked out for phoenix. Absolutely but i do think he got hosed out there i mean he only had one year on the job and that year was without deandra aiden chris. Paul had devon booker of course but that was not a good team that he was coaching. There i gotta get moses the because you want to see what the guy can do when you put that team in a position to win a great example to me is james breglio in charlotte. I mean berea. Was one of those guys assistant coach elevated to head coaching position in charlotte. Not great first couple of years there but when he was given players and chance to win he did pretty well. I mean up until lamelo ball went out the horns were really good team and i think they will be a good team. Going forward in part because of the borrego is a pretty good coach. I want to see this magic team. Invest heavily in jamal. The you're the guy developed these guys and we'll keep you around no matter what the won loss record says until you get a chance to win then you judge like brett brown six or seven days since brett brown left but i can see the for letting go of brett brown. I mean they had a talented team and to a degree the underachieved. But you've got to let the coach get a roster on that level before you really make any decisions about whether they can coach. Yeah well and that's the thing about. This is what set up says apart. I think the good organizations from the bad ones is that you you decide when you choose a guy. Especially if he's a longtime assistant not a guy with head coaching experience. And you've said we believe in this guy. This is somebody who's got a great trekker record as an assistant. We're going to first opportunity. It's your obligation to when you say investment. Yeah it's time investment. It's a give them all the tools to succeed. Give him the time to succeed. You've decided you believe in him. So stand behind that have the conviction to stand behind that and take some bumps along the way you know maybe maybe memphis and or the knicks should have stuck with david physed longer. You know we had heard nothing but great things about fiscal coming out of miami. Initially we may yet you know. Find out that he. He can be great head coach in the right situation. Maybe those worth rights situations. He might be one of those guys though. I love physios and assist one of those guys. Though the just the temperament is always important. Like the government like memphis yet. Some battles with market assault didn't work out your plus new york. You just might be one of those guys that doesn't have the right temperament to be is based on what we've seen a memphis in new york might be better suited for these ranks but if he succeeds in l. a. I think he'll get another chance right. Maybe i think the point being though that if you as an organization have identified a guy instead he we believe in him then. Okay then believe in him. Stick with them and make sure you've given them enough tools to succeed Is it a pulling the plug at the first sign of of struggle and that's what happens in the nba. too often. is that seems panic. You know the fans turn. There's some minor flare up. Oh the coach and player got into it. Whatever it may good teams that can happen on as well. And it's it's just. It's the way franchises. React so you have to know whether or not the guy is is is right and then stick with them. And so yeah. Let's jomo's should get a nice long here. She got a ton of latitude in orlando given where they are as an organization given the state of that roster. Yeah i agree. Howard enjoy milwaukee looking forward to hearing the conversation with the lazarus on friday. You can check podcast. Right here on the crossover feet again. Make sure you listen to howard's interview. Spencer dinwiddie from last week. It was really really strong. Enjoy -joy the mid west our. We'll talk when you're back on the northeast always a pleasure. My friend the newest player in the pre nba basketball landscape is overtime. Elite elite will begin playing sometime in the fall. And we'll be headlined by some of the top now. Former high school players in the country players would be paid minimum one hundred thousand dollars with some making north of that and have access to high level facilities training as well as educational programs to help. Get a better grasp on that. I'm joined by brandon williams the head of basketball operations for overtime. Elite and kevin ollie the former. Nba guard uconn. Coach was the head coach and director of player development bread. And i want to start here with you. Just kind of give me the ten thousand foot view overtime elite. What are the objectives. What what what was behind the formation of this league. I think any of us. Chris who've been around for a long time i've actually seen Sort of the downside of young players who entered into professional ranks to this point. It's been the nba Who are not ready. And so what does that mean you know not not ready to form and be stars or is it just not ready to be great teammates or is it not ready to be good partners. is sort of all that you know the idea that the work day is much longer than they know. And that there's more responsibility to be in a professional athlete The responsibilities to families and communities we just have to do a better job preparing them and here was an opportunity to be part of a program that wanted to address all that. It's not just about being a good player. It's like we wanna address the whole athlete. Hope so on. Three levels were hitting basketball. Easiest thing understand. I think businesses in our world is education And then there's brand you know. These young people now are moving at a speed that we aren't as older folks and they want to build things An earlier age particularly off the court so building a brand is important something that can last well beyond their tread on tire so we're hitting it in basketball business brand. That's that's that's really thirty thousand foot view. Kevin what attracted you to this job. Just like his dad is the whole person being able coach them from a mind body and soul Experience and understanding the mindfulness athlete I've seen it from a pro level. Got up tune into play thirteen years with twelve different teams so i understand like the different trials and tribulations you go through with a player not saying that these players are gonna go through that but is getting them more prepared if they do come into some certain situations where it's not typically going the right way. How can they manage that situation. So what they do today can echo into tomorrow and having the ability to kana paint on a black blank. Canvas is what a really attracted to me to to this you know. Ot league program we can take the player really shape the curriculum you not with teaching them about subjects. But we're really teaching them about themselves as well from media training From mental health issues. All the different things that come involved because we all know chris is stress. You know from success is a lot of pressures is a lot of people pulling at you. It's a lot of people won't certain things. But how do you deal with that from a player's standpoint where you can play when you get on the basketball court and half clear and not be caught up in the distractions of off the court issues. Um as desks desks were really kind of vocal. Spirit to give back in it and how these kids you know. Have these players be available at the moment of truth to make the right decisions and that was very important to me. Kevin as you mentioned you played in the nba brand. You played in the nba. As well i wanna ask both of you guys and kevin. I'll start with you like if this was available to you as sixteen. seventeen year. Old looking back. Would you have founded attractive with a definitely founded attractive You know i kind of thought the box anyway. I was from chris. Shaw from from from south central and i chose connecticut. So you places that. I didn't even know nothing about growing up. You always thought out the box and never wanted to go down a path that everybody was going down So i was always curious. And i think that's how my mom especially my mom. My dad raised me. So i definitely been curious of this situation. No no speaking now without you know took it. I'm not sure. But i think it really gave me another option to look at it and this is what we're trying to do not saying that the ncaa is wrong overtime. Leaders wrong or right. It's not about that. It's about if you really care about the student. Athletes you give them as much options as possible. And i think this gives the lee student athlete. Another option and i think you know it's a very Great option for them to have and if they choose overtime league we're going to give our whole heart to make sure they're developed on and off the basketball court chris i- jumping after coach It would have been interesting. Chris but i certainly would not have been a candidate i would. Let's just get that right. What what things that's important. We sit down going through just grassroots community and we spent months just talking to people educating about. You know what we're about who we are. Each of us has a reputation in some other space. Not here The this program isn't for everybody is not the right fit for everybody. We are cherry picking and a lot of ways. These are players that feel like they are destined for professional basketball. There are a lot of sixteen year olds. That don't know that yet and their parents aren't convinced that yet in people that support them. Don't don't feel that confidence yet. They may be another year away or two years away but this is not. This is not the right path for everyone. Twenty four athletes roughly twelve per class. We're looking at juniors and seniors and the truth is at this age. What was really funny about scouting them is everybody's skinny and like a lanky and underdeveloped and still has like a mountain of upside to you know to to get through before you can really see who they're going to be but you know if you have a young player like brand williams who's just dreaming of being an nba player but does not much certainty. That's even realistic We gotta be very careful about this approach In taking because there there are risks but for those that that have already established in this deke. They've established a day of separated from their class. You know jaylen. Lewis has an example the most recent example. He's he's he's elevated in separate. The draft isn't tomorrow though so there's still a lot of work to do but he's already in front running physician and it gives everyone low confidence that this is the kind of investment and the kind of pet that would make a ton of sense for players like that. Let me follow up on that brandon. Because you're you're entering. What suddenly become a fairly crowded space in terms of leagues like this. You know the g. league ignite is one season in but they've had a measure of success. We've seen jalen green probably a top pick. Jonathan kamenga top five or six. Then you have the ncw with this. Recent ruling allowing top players to make money off their name image and likeness. How does how does the elite separate itself from that group. Why think i is. We start a little bit sooner so the g. league zone a great job with what we call it a year the prep year that year. That a recent graduates would be going to college and they've already been hacking the system you know going to italy or china So so there's a market for those players and we want an alternative to college for for for us though. Our players are seeking an alternative to high school so we are a school but we think about the resources that were bringing to the table first of which being an nba like environment You know start coach. Ali coach lehto in a robust set of staff. I mean scouting staff a high performance staff administrative team. Our goal was to simulate an nba organization for for young athletes at sixteen seventeen eighteen. Th there there is no other environment. Like that. And i think the big way that we separate with high school athletes Is that both domestically and internationally. We're able to put twenty four of them together in a building. So what we're selling is the best competition for these guys starts at home. I mean every day in line coaches don't minister drills administer competition aspects of practice and getting ready for games but when you look to the right and left and i noticed as a player. There's no weak link. I mean everywhere you look. There's somebody that's doing what you're doing and possibly doing more. Because they they are not just dreamed about the into the league or to the high level. They're on their way there That's where we've been able to. I think create a little separation from others that have tried or looked at something. Like this kevin. How do you approach this job. Do you do it in a similar mindset and you had at uconn where you have young players you also you know yukon. You had to keep them academically eligible you to follow that pretty closely. I mean is there is it a similar mindset or do you take a different tact. I think you just let it be you know. Similar is not. It's just whatever comes you say yes to it and you cultivate hope from it I never coached high school players. They was always you know graduated from high school. And now they're freshman's This situation is a little different in in was recruiting for two to three years. This situation is a little different. But you know from me. Chris i love the unknown about it. And that's the space i live in. Not just wanna make sure that. I have the space incorporate something in these players that they can just think about it can build from a have a foundation so when they make the transition they have every tool in the toolbox to say okay. Oh that's a problem Assess it let me be able to correct it. Let me obsessed. Let me be aware of it and i think that's the difference between you know coaching a high school kid in in the college. Kid i mean you get able to mold them a little bit better and then you have to understand where they at. Now you know back then. I didn't have social media. We didn't have social media now. These kids these players are building their brand a little bit earlier and now you just meet them where they are. And i can't wait to get them up on campus get them up until atlanta just continue to build a great relationship. Welcome spend time with the one on one in. This situation is going to provide us to do a lot more skill development that i didn't have a really good opportunity and it had not one say good opportunity. I didn't have the best opportunity. Because there's so many things we own a row recruiting You own a row fundraising these different things. Brandon's taken care of in. Dan porter is taken care of. I can just really coach the player and work on his skill development on and off the basketball court. So it's really given me my own lane. So i can really perform my job. Mama job is really breaking down and relationships it starts. Relationship is start with trust. Stars will hold is spending time with the the young student athletes on and off the basketball court and pushed them to greatness and the competition is not on. our side of competition is with him. You know can you beat your previous best bestself. Can you be better than today you know. Can you be better tomorrow than you were date. And that's what i'm coaching. And that's what i love to do. And i think we're going to have some great young man as open as biden has going to be vulnerable going to try to reach for the sky. In the sky is going to be ob- you is not going to be limits. I can't wait to get up to atlanta. We've been having some many camps. Chris has been wonderful to get back on the court with the guys. And i'm looking forward to the next mini camp and dan looking forward to getting them up to atlanta. So we really can go to work. You know when. I was was talking to brian. shaw a couple of months ago. Kevin about how he was coaching. The ignite you know it was a lot of pro stop. He was trying to bring to that team. Are you taking that same. Approach you trying to coach them like their nba players or something different. No it's nothing different is just. I'm building pro. Habits in every situation is going to be different. Chris this is going to be some guys. Come in you know. Say for instance like a. John montero will we got him and he you know is a little bit more advanced than some other players because he's been a pro- already and then it's going to be another situation where we gotta talented guy might not be able to get quick but these opportunities we can go at our own pace we can sit down and talk to them but we're really teaching and building pro habits and those habits is going to translate over to them being great pros when that opportunity come invest in the nba are the euro league so every day you know we are building like a practice plan like more of a college practice plan nba practice bandwidth doing drills. That i got from my numerous stops in the nba. You know we're doing sets in the nba. Then we gotta understand that sixteen years old as well you know and maybe sometimes you gotta you know kinda doubt it down a little bit. But i'm gonna let com. I'm going to let that go. i'm not going to focus on one of it. I'm not gonna say oh. We're doing this process. Each and every day every day is different. And that's what i love about the unknown. And i'm gonna treat it like that and we just gonna continue to bill because i think we got great mas and organization that really want to coach the whole person. And that's what i'm really excited about. You decided to upgrade your outdoor deck. So you ordered the essentials. Power washer said a patio chairs and a shiny new grill. And you use your bank of america. Customized cash rewards credit card choosing to earn three percent cashback online shopping and up to five point. Two five percent preferred rewards member which you put toward your most essential deck addition a bird feeder of yours at bank of america dot com slash more rewarding copyright two thousand twenty one bank of america corporation support for this podcast comes from invent together according to studies less than thirteen percent of all inventors who hold a us patent are women black and hispanic college graduates patent at half the rate of their white counterparts. But we can fix that by increasing participation innovation and patenting by underrepresented groups. It would quadruple. The number of american inventors and increase annual gdp by almost one trillion dollars. Invent together is a coalition of organizations companies. Universities and concerned citizens committed to ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to invent and patent because the more diverse. The american patent system gets the stronger and more successful. our nation will become. What can you do to help. Divers inventors patent and unleash economic opportunity. Find out at invent together dot org learn more and take action today brandon not to continue to compare this team to the ignite but when i talked to sharieff abderrahim about that i mean. I had asked him about the sustainability of that team. Given how much. Money was being poured in to pay some of the players. And he bobbed and weaved floyd mayweather trying to answer that question. Because it's it's hard to commit to it without say a television contract more sponsorships and things like that when you can you speak to kind of the sustainability of this because we've seen startups with an influx of cash. Get get in big the first year. But then peter out. I mean what needs to happen. Four overtime elite to become a long term successful program while has got to answers. I think you know a concept. I mean we're we're selling on the ability to develop young players and have a more more pro ready right. So this is. This is the path we are offering basketball development. Call it professional Business development And we are also like leveraging. What is an incredible media platform that again. The things that we like to call a distinguishing factors. That's a huge one. So not to bob and weave one. We gotta be good ass. You know that. That's how have long deputy spurs the spurs. They were good for really long time. And so we've got the that there were good at this note. No pressure on kale right The the the second piece though is you know and this comes from my my time in the nba. It just wasn't that long ago where it out of chicago. Pre-draft combine interview. If i said. I wanna build my brand. Everybody in the room was like smirking and like you know what. What are we talking about like. It's about basketball basketball basketball And you know if you are young team developing and not winning a lot of games truth is you can't sell just basketball because your basketball isn't great you got to sell personalities and stories in that there's something that people can invest in in fall in love with other than like the final score like otherwise. The sixers had no chance right any any development team yet to buy into a story and for us. I think we have a chance to create stories but we get a chance to show those stories because we have a platform. So it's it doesn't take much. I mean i'm not a social media guru. But when i got recruited for this job haven't been around the block a little bit certainly from an nba perspective. I heard a couple of things. I really got my attention. One was fifty million followers That's eyeballs and we all know that that Business follows the eyeballs in whatever in whatever respect. The other was which is unfair. Because i think that number changes month over month but it started at one point four and not set maybe one point eight or one point nine billion with a b. billion views of content a month that overtime in some ways has found a way to the heart. The mind of young people It is being communicated and solid as you know the generation z. sort media and content engine We are doing an amazing thing here which is developing young talent in a pure way that we want to make sure that they are prepared. Top to bottom to do well on the court to do well and communities to do well in business but then there's this other thing which is they want to be known like. No player wants to play in an empty building. Everybody wants to play where it matters. They wanna play. When nick can rock and like the building and just like recognizing their talent. We're just artists. And one thing that is kind of showcase. By one event that that overtime overtime the media company producing s called. You see it on youtube to. Is that over. Hundred million people watched that. I mean that that's not an insignificant number that players that are going to play overtime. Lee will have the opportunity to be known The the opportunity of bring brick big brands to the table and support this platform If not already indicated by the kinds of investors that that have shown interest but the brands that are coming to the table our sustainability is going to be showing value delivering value to not just the athletes but to overtime visibility. I would imagine great for them but can you monetize it. Can you make it so this league is in the black or does it need to be in the black every year. Well my the good news is as a basketball man. No different than a different than the is Get a budget. My job is to be fishing and and spend wisely. I i'm not. I'm not asked to sell tickets or generate revenue that's for a tremendous And in successful a business operations Our job is to make sure that what we are delivering is high is a high level product That you see the growth and development of our young players. What's there recruited. We gotta make them better. They need to be able to perform and probably the best testament of our success is going to be our nba. Gm voting with this pick right but with a coach saying like they did a nice job. This guy was. Well coached testament to takeo and the rest of the coaching staff. That if we're doing that will prove successful. Because guess what the next crop of recruits when we're in the gym like we're not chasing them. There's sort of meeting us at at minimum half way. We need to keep bringing high level taliban and developing talent to prove successful and i have a tremendous set of partners across academics and across content media. That will will do their part to elevate our business. Can you expecting to tap into some of your. nba relationships. I mean as you mentioned thirteen teams in twelve seasons. You've made a lot of friends over the years. We're going to see like san preston sitting in the crowd for your practices as a whole so sam and so many gyms that i know you know Kevin durant and all these guys are destinies in overtime. Just having them be around. We had our first minicamp. Ray allen showed up and not only showed up. He brought his son to work out with guys. Just it was just amazing. does just see how the branches that we can continue to pull up on and they continue to pull on us and be a partnership in. This thing is going to be great. Are you expecting to have kind of drop ins. Durant's involved with the league. You expecting these guys. Just be around. Which i would imagine would be both a resource for you but also an attractive quality to this league definitely. Definitely we going to build a place where it's going to be hopefully a development premier development destination for everybody and you know hopefully katie can come out and work out with guys and russell westbrook and james harden and all these guys that we know and i know i had opportunity to be evolved. Then it's kinda beat a veteran guys We want them to be around. Because it's not. Just me sean. It's also watching tape like these are the different drills and look how k. d. and look how chris paul is using the pick and rolls and now they're showing up that's a that's a big big bang for us with us growing these young talented student athletes To get them inspired to the next level and they're doing a great job done only gonna do. I coached him. Chris a coach me on a day to day basis. I'm open to that and we just really want to have a love affair with guys and and the end of the day chris. We want appease the basketball guys. We wanna play the right way. We want to share a basketball. We wanna run. We wanna have fun. We want how to join the game but it can't just be me me me. It has to be weak. And i'm wanting to teach guys how to be involved in any system they get drafted about. They can be a part of a productive system and be a productive partner in in the community as well no matter what city they when they arrive to the nba brandon. Before let you go. What schedule gonna look like i mean is this team playing. Just walk me through kind of what these kids are getting into. And what kind of schedule you gonna be able to put together so schedule that that is really interesting for everybody. And i wanna try to illuminate. But i've got to be careful we are still contracting with some teams But for the audience the think about it in buckets. We're gonna play independent prep schools. That's going to be a significant part of our schedule. We are a high school so we are looking to schedule. Some of the top independence that you would typically no to have a national schedule can travel that have the ability to be mobile. We're scheduling home and away with with With those folks and it looks like net set as an example It looks like you know. Folks that are playing for a national title Arizona florida california. So it'll be a widespread travel schedule for us. We're also looking at European competition so think about junior euroleague as an example. Some of the best clubs the Insects as an example Where we can get a collection of sixteen to nineteen year old elite talent to compete against us. And then as i mentioned earlier on the show we really feel like the best competition is gonna come internally and that's where our league play Comes into effect so we are looking at our group of twenty four as three teams of eight. There will be standings you'll be able to track will compete against each other. That'll be a significant part of our schedule as well. We don't want to overstep our guys one of the things. We really wanna correct leading science. Guide us here. is is minimized the wear and tear. Nobody's while still developing and preparing for a professional level place so a schedule of maybe thirty five. To forty games is our target. We started september Training camp will will begin Play by mid august. We'll be done by by Late march is how we see our schedule shaping up i'm looking forward to it brennan kevin. It's a really interesting concept and hope you guys have a lot of success with an. I'll certainly be watching a lot of. Nba people will be watching but brandon. Stay out of a set of massachusetts. Kevin has like some basketball. Ptsd from all those bc. Matchups i'm sure would probably were so tough. I don't remember kevin. It's not real like talk about it. But lita past. We'd be six thousand. That's not very nice. That's hovering kevin brand. Thanks for joining me. I appreciate it all right. Thank you chris. Thanks so much.

There's some Nigerian players who are actually NBA players. Right there are and there are a few NBA players missing from that team that are still playing in the finals. No Djourou HOLIDAY. No Chris Middleton know Devin Booker. But the Nigerian squad does have three guys from the Miami Heat roster. Also one of the Sacramento Kings, a guy for the Minnesota Timberwolves and one of Donovan Mitchell's teammates with the Utah Jazz. Good for them. Congratulations, Nigeria. I think they taught a valuable lesson to our Guys on USA team that always thinks it's going to just steamroll everybody. I hope so. Because the last time the U. S, the U. S men's national team lost an exhibition game. They finished seventh in the feeble World Cup just a couple of years ago, so Hopefully they right the ship and we don't have one of those performances in the Olympics.

Saturday four game sunday and then it sort of continues on forever as this thing tends to go. Are you already overwhelmed or you cited. Where are you emotionally. I'm well-named excited. I neither some great first round match up. So i. I think it's kind of a more interesting season. I think kevin arnovitz has covered the nba for espn. Since two thousand and eight and he has a steel trap of a basketball memory. So i wanna start with game. That is still stuck in my brain. Kevin and we had this moment where the nba even as it is variously. Well-named was sort of all gathered around television watching the same exact thing. And i'm talking about the lakers. And the warriors and what. They did on wednesday night. Because lebron steph were certified filling every kind of dramatic potential that we hoped for them to meet. James drives onto scotto anderson tax at home curry reverse with the english class. Had lebron hitting an enormous absurd prayer of a thirty four. Footer puts up the three expires after which he admitted that he was seeing like three rims. Because he'd been poked in the eye by draymond he may have been plagiarising rocky four in the process but he wins the game that way. The whole thing was insane. And what i want to ask you about. Kevin is what you thought. The phoenix suns were thinking when they were watching that game unfold. I think phoenix is oddly. Confident like i. Obviously you run a great risk when you draw. Lebron james and anthony davis but i sort of liked the way. Phoenix is approached. This whole thing

"My goodness they put on a passage clinic tonight in how not to throw a post-entry pass. They threw the ball everywhere but where it needed to go in that was sure frustrating. Yeah, and you know the Knicks they are they are incredible defensive team actually and you know, it's kind of it's it's nice to see Julius Randle playing so well off the same time. You don't like to see him. Obviously, you know, this was the Julius Randle Revenge game. We had kind of made reference to that in a really kind of turned into that. But yeah, as far as the big man Montrezl Harrell Draymond Green were effectively almost neutered and I I mean, I texted one point Rez looked like he was getting abused by Taj Gibson, you know, and you know, they were they just thought I'd like to you know, one point in me if the games to Lance was doing commentary. I don't know if you got that version, but I wouldn't like to see if the Lakers went really small to counteract the what they were doing on the interior, but then right after school and said that actually Frank Vogel decided to bring Casal and so for mantra so they went the the other route blood no matter what we looking at the page.

He feels. Which i love that. Because that's my aka musician artist name. You know palmisano aka. Mr say what phil but he pointed out the hypocrisy of i guess sports in general not just the nba but sports in general where you know player like james harden comes out publicly. Says he wants to trade still plays still plays. doesn't sit And media just he gets media backlash they crucify and i guess the word Draymond uses castrate so he gets crucify castrated criticized. Whatever you wanna say. 'cause he called it comes out you know. He publicly says he wants to. Trade doesn't sit plays and guest crucified. Now another other hand though. Nba team can come out publicly. Say oh we're gonna trade this guy we're gonna sit him. We're not gonna let him play. We're not gonna let him do his job that he gets paid to do whether he wants to do it or not. We're not gonna give him a choice. You know to to work the job or going to trade him and we're just going to treat him like a transaction that's really. It's an apocryphal. It's like a is is very hypocritical. Man like you know.

"And as West Goldberg very news group joins us to talk a little warrior basketball, I got to say West. It sounds Eerily reminiscent to the same conversations The Warriors were playing we're having last year. So what is that 14 15 months ago around this time? When they're in camp and seemingly there were times where I'd listen to them talk and it sounded like they were trying to convince the world that they were still good, but they're also sounded like there are times when they were trying to convince themselves And this advantage that they were supposed to have it. The beginning of the year. There rested when the rest of the league is not now, with covert hitting Wiseman and dream on and the clay injury. It's sort of a feels like like like that's Evaporated. What's your read on it? Yeah, I think that's a good point. Because You know, a month ago, right? They thought, Hey, we've got nine months of rest. Clay Thompson is coming back. Draymond Green is going to be healthy and motivated. Steph Curry is coming back, and he didn't play a whole lot last year. Everything you know they've got James Wiseman, this number two pick all this stuff. You're right. You know, it felt it does sort of feel like going in the last year. Where, you know, Come on, Moony suffered a a Nurlita injury. You know, Alice smile like you to, you know, not a typed. It seems wise man Number two, but who they were excited about. The ankle injury earlier in the year and on down Steph Curry goes down early in the season with a broken hand. And obviously they were without Clay Thompson come grand left, etcetera. There's there's a lot of things now, despite them, maybe being a lot more optimistic. You know, a month two months ago now, with Clay Thompson having the second straight season ending injury, James Wiseman and Draymond Green Mission training camp with after testing positive for the coronavirus. There's a lot of stumbles early on, right and this is not You know, for most of that five year stretch of five straight finals. Where is we're lucky with injuries. They were fortunate, right? They didn't have season starting out with with bumps in the road like they basically have. Before these last two seasons of even started, And so, Yeah, I think they were going into the season with optimism. They were trying to be optimistic. You know you're trying to balance Hey, where the Warriors We've got this culture where winning team. We're winning organization. Everybody wants to play for us. Everybody loves up, etcetera. Versus We're not really this dynastic team anymore. The core is and exactly what it was, as it had been before. And and it's just a little bit tougher to be is optimistic as you may have wanted to bet to be because of the injuries because of these positive tests, and all these things, and And you do get a sense from talking with guys like Steph Curry and Steve current and some of the people. I've been around that, you know, they want to be optimistic. They try to be optimistic. They're also kind of tempering expectations a little bit. West. I'm sure you've got in your inbox Last 90 or ears. First game notes of the year 11. They arrived and in the starting lineup for the projected start of the game against the Denver Nuggets in a preseason game on Saturday, have stuff and Kelly Go break Junior. The backcourt Andrew Wiggins of three In the front line of Eric Pascoe and Kevon Looney Good players, but they're not Draymond Green and James Wiseman. So why has been has been cleared to go back to practice and watch from a balcony and hang out with Zaza? And get pointers on defensive rotations from the great size up, Pachulia. But dream on is not yet allowed, as far as I know, into chase. So where we at with with Wiseman getting clearance to come back is that optimistic people open the year. Against Brooklyn and where we at which Raymond, do you think? It's tough to know, but we're all getting the same sense that you are. James Wiseman obviously tested positive. You know, a few days before Draymond Green did right because there's not a star. Look, I'm not a doctor. I don't know if there's levels of this Corona virus or not, but it seems like James Wise and Tested positive before dream on Green did And so that's why he is further along in this protocol process that dream on is and so Yeah, he's been allowed to at least watch. Practice from a distance, while Jamon Green is thoroughly in his self quarantine, period, and but and so I think another part of this, too. Is that Draymond Green isn't gonna like replace James Widened. Wise move. Draymond green. What stream on green Gonna learn watching practice from a balcony sitting next to Zaza Pachulia? Nothing right. Like there's no drive on. Green doesn't need training camp to learn the schemes and all these things. Raymond Greene, the training camp to knock the rust off Tol you watch remind you want dream out on the floor. He's the middle linebacker in the free safety of the Defense West. You want him on the floor, ripping everybody around him to make sure they're on the right. Spots and remind you got to get ready to play as well. Absolutely. But it serves him no purpose to be on the balcony. You know what I mean? Like No, but nobody is going to be benefited from him being you know, of watching watching practice from a socially distance, you know, point of view, so You want him on the floor? I think that's a really. I think it's a big loss for the team that needs to start the season quickly. I mean, if you look at their 1st 14 games 10 of the 1st 14 games are against teams that made the playoffs last year. And then one of those other teams of Phoenix who didn't make the playoffs last year, but it's probably going to now they've got Chris Paul. They're gonna be competitive Team so 11 out of 14 teams. The 1st 14 teams they play are our playoff caliber teams. The NBA did not give the Warriors a break coming out of the gate. Despite them, you know, maybe being rusty and not having to key contributors and Wiseman and green and training camp getting able for in dream on Green's case. Getting a chance to knock off Russian Wiseman's case, getting a chance to play basketball like a real bat like a competitive Axl for the first time in November of last year. Like that's detrimental to his development. And so you know, and it said a condensed 72 game season where every game that is that much more. It's the Warriors aren't getting any any help. You know to start this season, especially when you consider like I said the strength of schedule early in the year and given that the first game is against Brooklyn second game is against Milwaukee to title contenders in the Eastern Conference. It's going to be really tough for them at the Gate West. I'm fascinated by Andrew Wiggins. And I know you have Ah, recent story about him. Everybody should should check out. I think he's He's kind of under discussed. Everyone's thinking about a month ago, the return of Steph Clay and dream on and now clay goes out, and Wiggins is still sitting there as this guy, the fan base has not had a chance to connect with yet. But he eventually end up being a trade piece. Or could he step into expectations that a little bit higher level like I really think in many ways, he kind of holds the key for whether this team Is still a playoff team, or are they gonna end up having a disappointing year? What did you learn? And in that conversation, and what is the role that you think he plays this year? I think that's one of the big questions that the words of trying to figure out right There. It's telling that Andrew Wiggins spent his off season this prolonged offseason, um in Southern California, working on his ball handling and honest three point shooting. I think you're gonna see Andrew Wiggins played two different roles this year in the starting lineup. That's where the three point shooting comes in that he was working on. He needs to make open shots if he can't space the floor and then tell you, Bray if they can't space, the floor. The Warriors. Half court offense is gonna be really tough to watch. It's gonna be a grind, right? Eh? So he needs to be able to space the floor and shoot like 35, plus percent from three point range, but then that But when stuff is off the floor drain Montez off before Where does the second unit offense come from? And I think that's where Andrew Wiggins is. Ball handling comes in the bowling when I was working on all the sudden well, you saw him do with Minnesota, which wasn't a great fit for him Running pick and roll. After picking all he told me in that conversation. You know, in Minnesota Man, I was running to pick and rolls three pick and rolls a game. You know, the first one won't work. The second one wouldn't work. I had to run a third one and then buy them..

Oh, the steel though. Steal stevie. Oh, is he Angela member? He stole in China. Yeah. Oh rest. That's that'd be busted out, Angelo, it the UCLA kid. Achy you're familiar with brothers. That is liangelo liangelo, lonzo's youngest. But I tell you watching lavar this morning. I think he knows. It's about up when he's in New Orleans, something that he's talking about the Lakers talking about crashing down Anthony Davis. Yeah. They got Anthony Davis sickness I six years old. He's the prime is career the old things come into crashing down. What? No his personality no hills. Big baller trio of, of sons and get out. Here's a quote, I guarantee you'll be the worst mood the Lakers ever did in their life, and they will never win. Another championship NBA. I guarantee you, they're not on AM five seventy in LA right now. Let's talk about the crash of the Lakers, man. They're talking about Lakers as a title contender. Now, everybody's just put Golden State out to pasture, by the way. It's just like oh, yeah, they're on. Pause. Larry. Well still. Okay. Let's, let's talk about them for second. Katie's out for the year with the achilles. Right. And who knows if he's coming back Thompsons out, nine to ten months with the ACO DaMarcus looney bogut and, and Gerard co all your bigs for the boat for the most part are all free agency. You got to decide what you're gonna do. Livingston could retire Jordan, Belen Quin, cooker restricted so they have the mid level to throw it. Somebody, I don't know if it's going to be Trevor REEs or JJ Rediker, Steph curry, or whom, they're who they're gonna go after. But you still have Steph curry, and Draymond green, don't you think that's a place. Some people think, okay? Let me ask you this. What is the what's realistic over under next year? State. We don't know who's going to be on the team. They're going to get probably, maybe three or four picks or rookies guys after the draft, who do you think I mean gimme gimme a over under and realistic? Yeah. And once again, I don't think you lose that championship thing, you've had for five years overnight. I would say fifty and thirty two wouldn't be bad. You know, see think they're fifty win team. Okay. Does occur obviously because it curry and Draymond. And, and what I was more worried about. You're gonna go way lower than that. You're going to go, like thirty five or forty oh, that's under five hundred. I know that's. Feel like they're going to get hammered this year is there. They don't have they just lost forty percent of their offense in the finals for next year. And they're over the cap, so they have. No. And they're offering max deals to both those guys who can't play this year. So on one hand, you don't think of when nobody's looking on Durant, if there's any, I mean, clay, you keep from the original fabric of the team every indication he wants to be a warrior, but fathers already come out and said he's gonna exactly but I'm just saying if I'm lake of, and I'm driving driving around Pebble Beach, and I know you know, there's, there's kind of that question question. Mark all year, just Durant wanna be somewhere else to Saran. Wanna do this Durant? What he that he's not one hundred percent tied with the Lakers and you've got a billion dollars in in luxury tax staring in the face. Wouldn't there be a feeling today? I know Durant's great. But if he doesn't want to be here and won't kill me if. You want if he goes somewhere else. Give him truth. Serum saying. Deals he'd never you can't admitted publicly his ease already. They've already come out. Hey, we want to we want these guys back. We wanted to him back might be competitive this year. You're not going to I shouldn't say that you're not going to be a title contender most likely in. And there's, there's people floating all kinds of stuff, I've heard people suggest that they need to trade, Draymond green. I would not do that. I would not do that to get as good as Draymond green players for one, but not as good a player his will in what he does in so many facets of the game on both ends of the floor. I think it's, it's, it's too bad that took until March for him to really get in shape. But now that he's in shape. And he's got the fitness thing, down to me that was the my only concern about giving him the max, you know, giving him big money long term is what's his body gonna look like. But now that he's leaned out. And if he's committed to it, there's no stopping him in his will and his offense defense is, you know, commodities, he's a he's a max player. Yeah. My deal is on the Durant. I wanna be clear if Duran came comes in a week and says, hey, this is where I wanna finish the rest of my career. You guys were great to me. I'll sign five years or over that works out fine. But if somehow he just comes back and said, well, I'm really not sure about or indicates he only wants his short term deal, man. I'm going to rehab you for thirty or how much you get. Your mindset is totally change all because of the injury. Oh, yeah. Yeah. You know what I'm saying is because last week, the team was willing to sign him at all costs and give basically trade him at any point, just according to Frank is all a report. Yeah. At the warriors were so desperate to have to say, hey, you know what anything you want, you want to be traded at any point in the steel wool trade. You, you know, that was the ISO on talking, as you know, Myers, and the team, of course. They're in the gym. They there's seeing them every day. They know what he's really about everybody seems to say a great teammate and we love him. I'm just talking about if I'm lake and, you know, whether you want to hear this, or not, if you're Durant, you aren't employees and think this guy one hundred percent is in other words, signing a long term deal. Great. I'll rehab you for a year because I'm gonna get another four years out here. But if he goes for that. Here's the thing, though. I will get it the other way if you right now, if drank, and rich in rich climb want the, you know, the two hundred twenty million dollar long-term deal. You don't know what player you're getting back. I would imagine, he's going to be diminished is five percent. Diminished is he eight percent two minutes? Does he ten percent diminished? You know is is he how close to pre injury drain? Is he going to be I think, he's so great that I guess my thing is if he's all in and comes to me and say, I want, I want to retire a warrior that, that would change my thinking as opposed to take a short term deal in one, one of the years, we'll be your rehabbing me, you know, that, that I that I would if I'm thinking to myself signed somewhere else, get him out of here. And let's go if he doesn't want to be here long-term now. I have no idea what Durant's gonna do. I'm just saying that, that would be my thinking I hear you, but, I mean, there's no upside to that play. Because if you don't have them, you still don't you're still over the cap near you. Still don't have the ability to do anything, you know what I mean? So, you know, you can either have them a year from now, the deferred gratification or not have him in not have any money to replace him. Are we got a guy who maybe hit something that we've failed to mention go ahead, ram and south city? A urine Cambier gentlemen. Thank you for taking my call points today. Larry's, right. Obviously, we don't sign your head. You don't any kept safe anyway. But what I think, in addition to that, if you do signed in Thomson, you do get the table player exception to societas with both of those players, so you get them and you get next year obviously, maybe later this year, but your basic to mid levels in addition to that, for those players so rent Ramseys. Let me stay what I'm talking about the lake of may say, go ahead. Go somewhere else. A lot of that is predicated on the fact that if indeed that story is true, that puts him about a billion dollars over the cap, you know. And I know that, oh, whatever it's, it's only money and all that. But a short term deal with the guy who's going to cost me that much. I, I don't know if I love him that much. I hear what you're saying the chase center to make that money back if he don't sign them maybe probably make money. If you don't win tickets etcetera with the luxury tax. It would be. I think it's about half a billion with the numbers. I heard a billion approaching morning approaching could be could be. But I think he is he's already with Thomson saying, you know, we have unfinished business. You know, he's not gonna leave seventy million on the table. You're gonna take a four year one sixty with the Knicks or to twenty one five year with the warriors. I mean who's gonna walk away from sixty million dollars. So I think he's gonna sign but the point I wanted to make too is we do get players back for him because we're gonna get the disabled player exception that you're going to be able to get into the one mid-level exception. You can, you know, you have two more one Thompson, and one for Durant. I would be available maybe K Rettig unrestricted free agents. But I don't know that the ready with the Lakers Leno reading Gary's thinking, Lakers leg. Here's the Lakers. They don't need another outside shoot curry taste of that. Scary. Forty percent of their offense in the finals. But I don't think JJ again, I JJ rhetoric is a nice fourth guy, but I don't think he's Golden State's, they're gonna need offense. As far as well. Dang hail.

Bill Rutter with you on the program, along with the guys Kovacs, Tom Benedetto. So. And a little bit of a run for the warriors that eight oh, lead has been cut to seventeen twelve point lead versus a five point lead, obviously, not that's difficult. But agent, nothing versus seventy to twelve it just feels different. Right now so far Toronto, five of seven from three the warriors over two. Very physical game. And again, or is going to play better defense than they just do. They got close out the point line. They've got to play with an urgency on every single possession on defense. Draymond green is amazing. Did he might get a technical in the next thirty seconds? It'd be suspended for game seven and team the game. But when he's not doing that. He's amazing. A guy who's a little more complicated and Draymond complicated. But teenage love plans, Draymond green. Curry Irving a little different. Right. Couldn't play with LeBron.

"Well, we all remember what happened in game one with PASCAL Yaacob. You're all celebrating him fourteen for seventeen from the field game to now. Exactly the same. He was five for eighteen. He wasn't nearly as effective as he wasn't game one. What did the warriors do differently in? How can he make an adjustment heading into game three? They didn't over help overreact the greatness of Coa letter the way he was dominant in the Easter, compass playoffs. The worst came into the series like not only are we going to double team his actions, but we're going to sit at third man to almost play like a middle linebacker. So too, if he beats to double team, they're going to be there and is that gave driver lays the PASCAL Jakko ticket layoffs. And don't also the raptors did a better job since they shot fifty percent of getting out in transition and in the open floor, as Draymond green alluded to they were really fast. The coaching staff told him. Get ready. And they weren't ready. And lastly, Draymond green shut his water off. He was over six regarded by Draymond green. This is why through the Western Conference finals, and the first two games, the ABA finals, if I had to pick an MVP of the Golden State Warriors that man represents Saginaw th pride. Draymond green, well, there's so much discussion Haney heading into game three about Klay Thompson. We'll Klay Thompson play will he be available? It's almost like we forgot about a gentleman by the name of Kevin Durant. Kevin Durant says he feels good. There's been discussion about whether or not he's gonna come back. It was reported that he would come back and either three or four Jalen. Do you think Kevin Durant will play in game three on Wednesday night in the bay? I do not believe katie's going to play.

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.

"Holiday weekend with a Gordon Deal with Jennifer Kushinka coming up this half hour. What money is measuring for us. Also housing in San Francisco is so expensive. Some people live on boats, and the veteran who finally got his college degree decades after leaving school for World War. Two will have that story in about twenty minutes. Well, the question in the NBA playoffs right now, doesn't seem to be who will win the NBA championship. The question seems to be, how good are these Golden State Warriors analysis from Mitch Albom. Co host of the sports reporters podcast From Compass media networks. Mitch warriors seem hungry. Like they're pursuing their first title, not their third in a row. It's not same group that one last year. We don't have Kevin Durant out there. And I think the warriors have been fascinating. Exercise in duality in terms of like identities for their team. They're one team with Kevin Durant, where they can rely on thirty five to forty points on any given night from him just by dumping a ball in. And there are totally different team without him which they rely on that sort of Harlem Globetrotters, we've to get guys open for jot. And of course, it led by Steph curry, and Klay Thompson. That's the way they played four forty got there. So the media that you can have sort of two completely different identities on the single team. But what you're calling other urgency or whatever I think, is just reverting back to the way, they played four Kevin Durant. Which by the way, they want to champion with not to heap greatness on them. But is that a sign of how good they are that they can make really what was a mid playoff adjustment to lose an all star and keep rolling or and not a fair comparison? Because they've got what six current or former all stars on that roster. You're actually saying the same thing in either direction. Yeah, it's not to the depth of talent on that team that you can lose a player that Kevin Durant. And they can slide into a you know, a team it still looks like they got more superstars than you can ever dream of having that. They do. I mean, you know, Steph curry Klay Thompson, Draymond green, especially now and I think Draymond green even more than Steph curry has been able to expand his game with Kevin Durant out because the things that you ask Draymond green do rebound toughness. Keep ball, the live second shots necessary. As with Kevin Durant. You dumped the ball to Kevin already backs any turned around hits. It impossible shot over a guy with the Draymond green really supposed to be doing so you can sort of fall out of your rhythm. But in, in the high paced move the ball around look for three point shots, that they do without Kevin Durant there. He's much more integral part. So the count him as the superstars the word certainly star. So they already are deeper without Kevin. Durant them. Most teams I think they're also Gordon very well coached and to be able to shift that kind of style play show about coach who knows what he's doing impressive for speak with Mitch Albom co hosts of the sports reporters podcast From Compass media, your reference, Draymond green is this Draymond green two point. Oh, like who is this guy right now? Green because I played playing college here in Michigan state, and that's exactly how he used to play with energy with fire with muscle with surprising Jila d for a guy who says big and thick as he is do the bucks or raptors have a shot at the warriors. I don't think so. No, I think what you're seeing both of these teams is the growing pains of, of being at this level. You know, from both of them, this is this is new, at least this point nation of them. And I think whoever comes out of this battle, and I'd like to be a battle because I think both of them will benefit from being tested in a seven game series for next year. Whoever wins will advance, obviously get some experience in the in the finals, and whoever doesn't will know what it's like to almost get there. And we'll come back that much hungrier against the warriors. I think they'll be a lot of that. Wow. We're in the final. Hey, we're in the folks that and that whole thing warriors taking four days from yourself. You know, I mean they just did it to just did it to a very good Portland team. And I think you heard from the Portland players. There was a lot of that. Well, you know, we've never been this level expected to get to this. I think you're gonna hear that same kind of stuff from whoever gets there from these phone Mitch Mitch Albom co host of the sports reporters podcast From Compass media networks. Twenty one minutes now in front of the hour on this weekend. It may not be stomach issues for me. It's intense gas or pain, or diarrhea sometimes all at once over and over I spent years with the symptoms, but could never figure it out. No matter what I did they never went away. So I decided to break it down for my doctor and get really specific about my symptoms. We discovered that execution pancreatic insufficiency or API may be the reason for my stomach issues EP.

"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..

"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.

"It's piddle motor show for Kevin Durant ever since game. Three of the first round. You know, why that's what he said. He's got twenty cap in company with David Kaplan on ESPN one thousand. Lemon twenty nine in Chicago, Katie killing it playing outstanding basketball and the Golden State Warriors will get off the Houston with a two oh series lead. What was your thoughts on last night's game? It was interesting to watch injuries to key stars early in the game. Steph curry has dislocated finger they popped it back in place in the locker room. And he came back out. James harden gets hit in the eye which was still bothering him at the post game press conference, but he's still scored twenty nine points. Where are you on where this series might be headed? I think we're the series is headed is it's going to head back to Houston. Houston's got to perform better at home Golden State's great on the road. But I just think you get an increase performance from a cappella think who would for fourteen and ten good numbers. But I think even better rim protector. I look at PJ Tucker. I think he. Gives you more from the three point line. I James harden goes from twenty nine the potentially forty in a game. Eric Gordon, fifteen points looks like twenty three twenty four points. I think this team's going to up the ante. I think Austin rivers will be better even defensively. More dialed in look Draymond green has been the the vintage Draymond green doing everything giving you a little bit of scoring setup man with his passes. He's hitting the backboard he's been good defensively. Klay. Thompson is is not going to. I don't think he's going to have a blow up game in this series. Twenty one points is is is very good. I don't think he's gonna go for thirty five point game in this one. I think Steph curry is going to be contained into those twenty point realms. So can you keep Kevin Durant relatively obey? No, forty five point games from him. I just think ultimately shotmaking Bill. Houston is going to be increased at home. And I think the performance of Durant is going to be increased at home. I look at the role players of the warriors always tell the story for me with his team guys like Andrei dollar what he gives you McKinney guy like that in a little bit of time, Shaun Livingston. I always look at those side pieces for the warriors and their their rotation guys. How can they lift them? But I just think once he gets back home without I changes, if I let you have first pick we decided thought at the yesterday, we said we'd get back into first pick your building a franchise today. We take any player in the NBA today on building my franchise like where they are in their careers as well. Yeah, I'd probably honestly take the Greek freak at one. If I'm building my franchise today. I think long and hard and Kevin Durant would probably be very close to a second. Now because you're building a team I'd want somebody who could check a lot of boxes for you. I'd have to go long and hard thinking about that. When I think what you were trying to get out with your tweet that I blasted you for was maybe structuring the conversation more towards that. But as I talked myself throwing odds, I'd still go back to Kevin Durant. Actually. I would I Kevin Durant is scoring. There's not scores like that. When you get a score like that. That's a premium. That's what you value more than anything. I am taking Kevin Durant. I, and I I would think long and hard about Greek freak too. But I'm going to Kevin Durant as my first guy. Kevin durant? If he goes to me what thirty. Yeah. I I'd have to look. Kevin Durant goes to New York right away. They become a player. Greek freak goes that right away. They become a player. James harden goes there right away the become player. There's. Steph. Curry is a great appreciation for his Korea's. But he's not the star of Golden State. Kevin Durant is the star of Golden State. Steph. Curry is great Klay Thompson, his great Draymond mod is very good coming through team. He's the star. He's the guy you want the ball in his hand. If I was drafting one eight so hard question because he's four I think I'll take the Greek freak, Danny? How old is Yoenis aunt that the compound how old is Durant. I believe twenty nine turning thirty and youngest is twenty four he'll be twenty five in December thirty katie's thirty. Yeah. I would definitely take the Greek freak a lot of people would agree with you. I think that is a very good conversation. I'm just in all of Kevin Durant. I I watched it like Cisco sub fee toll. I'm six eight. I had one time when I was in peak shape. It impressed people that could guard a point guard to a center at six eight and move and still have some muscle on me. It's ridiculous that a guy who's solid four maybe five inches taller than me has the guard skills and the touch from the perimeter that he has and the body control. He sinewy and how he moves. He's got an incredible length is kind of freak. He's also a free. He's a frequent. If I could go back and wave a wand over you and your born would you rather have been seven feet tall? Really? Yes cap. I would not be sitting here with you. He'd be caught me on a guest line to talk about the play offs and a team on the lowest be away. What are you nuts? I would never wanna be seven feet tall. Never. You're asking a six eight basketball player who if you had maybe four or five inches could have changed the the anti advice career,.

"We want a guys thinking positively going into a situation where you know, if we lose we're going home. All right. And it was a building that was tough for us to play. Unfortunately for them. Draymond green got suspended. Okay. I think people point to that too much though, what as what dream on getting suspended. It's like, oh, they won because Draymond got suspended. Not Draymond does get suspended in the Cavs. Never win feel like well, we can say about any game like a ball bounce this way. Or that way. I mean, the also salted the brunt. Jay, that's crazy part about this. And this is what I tell people because I I hear that a lot too. And I'm like come on stop it. He played game six and seven. Yeah. Seven much of threes hail. Yeah. And now was an hour's another thing. Coach Lou did at halftime that game. He got on LeBron James because he wasn't playing well enough in Draymond green. Was you know, playing really really well. And and he told me he had to step up and shit. Second half, he stepped up and man that was the best Father's Day of my life bet. I bet man. I mean, we we popping champagne, and you know, I'm a big cigar guy. We have cigars, and it and it was just van. It was awesome. So okay. I want to talk about cigars. Yes. Not a cigar guy. No. Because I I I used to smoke cigarettes a long time ago. So I'm a natural inhaler. Okay. So I have trouble with that. Also, they're stinky they last too long. I I enjoy a cigar for like a minute and a half. And then I've just had enough. I start to feel sick and everything you're a cigar gang cigar guy. I I can leave here right now have lunch and just sitting a cigar lounge all day and watch TV. Oh, there's one on thirtieth street, you know, right on aids avenue. There you go. You can enjoy that one right by the garden, which I'm sure you've probably been in there before I love I love so host cigar bar. Really? Nice shout out this SoHo cigar? Yeah. We'll I want again.

"I'm gonna sit that might be it that's closer to it. He's Shushi the naysayers, Dan. The problem is nothing rhymes with Draymond trying to replace. No, no. I think I think it could trick lip-readers. I think that he could say instead of Draymond. He could say dreaming looking him out. Draymond dreaming. I'm so tired. I'm dreaming of taking a sip. Sure it is. Problem solve there was mother video that was funny about two weeks before that Stu gods where Draymond green was clearly injured limping around, and he fell at the feet of a sitting dreaming not Draymond green. A sitting. Steve Kerr and Draymond green is writhing in pain in front of him. And Steve Kerr's just staring straight ahead of Yang dim. That was so weird was like that is feet for like, thirty seconds. And Steve Kerr was like so intensely looking at something or pretending to be looking at something so intensely that he did not even notice that one of the stars on his team is laying on the floor possibly or possibly pretending to be hurt. Just laying there in pain screaming. It was right at his feet. It's almost impossible to know not notice a man that size rising on the ground at your feet. Well, this could be was happening there. Also, Dan, maybe he wasn't saying like, aloe. My foot hurts me. It was like, oh, no, don't worry. Steve. I'm cool. I'm just laying down. I need a little break here. That's why Steve Kerr wasn't worried because we didn't hear it was actually being said we just saw the mouth moving. Can you guys? Look this up on the internet. See and find out for me, if if it's being validated or proven that this is indeed what Steve Kerr said. Because all of us believe that it's how Steve Kerr feels right? Whether he says it or not whether he says it or not, of course, he's tired of dreaming. On there. Are there are people speculating that he's saying shot instead of the word? Be that everyone's still trying to figure it out. But that's a good one though, Chris because it could be I'm so tired of dream on shot. If you've seen shooting percentage is you're so Z. That would be a good excuse. Maybe he's saying I'm so tired of dream on sharing. That's another s h sound. I still think he just really wants to sit down donlevatar risk reward of going into the woods by yourself, you die or you. See some trees, I'm not gonna die to go. See some trees still guts, isn't a me. You've seen one you've seen them. All okay. There's no special non. That is true. Let me this is nonsense. Easy live at our show with a Stu gods on ESPN radio. Stugatz has a lot of thought he was off skiing. His body hurt. His back from vacation. He's got a week of thought that he has not been able to share with the microphones. It is now time for Stu gods is weekend. Observations. It is time for us to guts to Sherry skim notes..

"Well, his overall numbers are ridiculous is offense numbers. But. Prime. James harden, their prime Dwayne Wade if you're picking. Oh, wow. That you know that that's a tough question. There are a little bit different. I'm biased. I coached Wayne's. I take Dwayne. But but I realize my my bias there. Also, James it better three point shooters, certainly. But Dwayne was a great great score. And and quite honestly when Dwayne was coming up, the three point shot, isn't what it or wasn't what it is. Now had it been Dwayne would have probably come up and put more emphasis on it and shut ten threes. A game like everybody else. It says on the screen, professor, STAN Van Gundy. So we're speaking of professor, STAN Van Gundy, ESPN NBA analysts. So we have talking with Greg, and Greg Cody here, you might not have heard his voice yet. But he's here. Hi, greg. How are you? I'm good. Thanks. I was I knew your it's too late. You too. Snugly talking with Gregg about Draymond green. And how whether because of the type of player he is he's one of those sort of rational confidence guys whether his his confidence being delicate perhaps is he possibly broken out. When you consider the argument with K D, the whole weight on the idea of him driving, Katie out defenses are leaving him. Absolutely alone shooting. Numbers are terrible. And he doesn't seem to be playing with that same confidence that he had in the past. Because why would you is there something wrong with him can that can his sort of strength. His powers be zapped. Somehow, by the way defenses are playing. Well, look, I think almost all NBA players go through times of losing confidence and everything else. But generally guys will come back to who. They are. I think we'll see the Draymond green that we've seen in his first few years in the league. Again, this season his games based on defense. And passing the ball and facilitating for others. That's what they expect that of him anything he does shooting. The ball is a bonus people have been leaving him alone for a long time. They'll make a few but that's not his game. And if it's a choice between Durant career Thompson shooting or Draymond green shooting. You'll live with him shooting. The ball Draymond never let that affect his dues ESPN passionate intensity..

"I mean, that's the kind of little stain that never quite leaves in his always sort of indelible when you think of who Draymond green is right. And then think about that as well. So who knows if he's really thinking this way who really knows outside of Kevin Durant. If he has the intention of leaving Golden State. But a lot of what people said after that spat, and you know, Katie was like that's why I'm out of here. Whatever his brother said something on on Instagram, or whatever if then Draymond loses his powers, if you will this year, and even if they win it again and people blame him largely for the reason that Kevin Durant leaves. And then, you know, who knows they don't get another superstar that dynasties over and they pin it on him. Right. Like, I don't even know that could very well happen. Yeah. And he could have maybe even thought these things or maybe somebody put that thought in his head. And now he's just like well now, not only my playing like, you know, at least by his own standard trash, but I could be the reason this all falls apart that's horrible for him. And it, and it's not only horrible, but very plausible, particularly if Durant on the way out, which he would do I think gives the parting shot to dream on green by saying. Well, obviously, I wasn't as wanted as I needed to be. Oh, yeah. And he's no he's not going to shy away from making comments because he's makes comments about everything these days. I saw Kevin Durant. Either said, yeah, I think he said something of people hate him because he plays because he's so darn good at basketball. That's not what anybody hates them at all. Like, I don't think that many people hate him. It's just but so he's going to be vocal. And if he goes ahead and says something negative about dream on the way out or after he leaves man that's going to be terrible for Draymond. And the whole narrative of of that dynasty. Yeah. I don't see how Draymond green survives in Oakland. If that scenario unfold, thank you definitely needs that run that really strong run to sort of get that confidence back, and then they win three in a row and four out of five. And then all of a sudden, it's like, hey, even if Katie leaves, whatever we had a great run. I was a great part of it. But it's kind of in that point where you know, I have all the confidence in the world that drains gonna get past this strong-minded everything else, but he could be at that tipping point. Yeah. There is a narrative where Kevin Durant leaves Golden State continues to be great. And one of the reasons is that dream on green. Free of Durant or.
