"If you run through it, Boston has a 6 toughest schedule the rest of the way. I have a really hard time being dismissive of a Milwaukee. But Milwaukee has the toughest schedule of all 30 teams remaining. And they're now, I think, 29 and 8 with all three guys when drew, Middleton, who went off today in Giannis all play together. They're like, okay, because the other thing too is like you look through all the top teams and who gets to complain every single fan base gets to complain about not having their guys. I mean, between Miami, butler's miss 20, Larry Smith 17 bands miss 25 and they're still going to be the one seed. You got Brooklyn, KD's miss 27, Kyrie's miss 39 games. Milwaukee Giannis is missed 11 Middleton 12 drew 13. So they've actually been healthier because you hear a lot of Milwaukee like, oh, we don't have brook Lopez. At this point, the brook Lopez numbers don't count comparison to the other ones. Phoenix is going to miss their most important player for like two months. Draymond, we have no idea about. You know, so Memphis has been relatively healthy. If we're trying to bring out to how many teams are actually tighter contenders and Boston between Tatum and brown, that's only 19 missed games. Like Boston may be benefiting too from just having way more continuity than these other teams. And then you throw in Chicago who you take out their defensive back court, they're a mess now defensively. I don't like their defensive matchups against bigger wins. I've been saying it now for a while and I think after the most recent loss are the bull zero and 13 against the top three teams in each conference or something like that. They don't beat anybody really good. They know. Yeah. And it's hard for me when you get into the playoffs as much as I love the Chicago story Bill. When you get to the place and you have that kind of blemish on your resume, it's a great story, but I don't know how serious I can take you. So I think three is totally in play for them, whether it's for Boston, meaning Milwaukee and then, you know, Philadelphia is still going to win a ton of games here with heart. One thing I like with this Boston team, we always talk about malleable rosters with playoff teams, right? Boston can go big. If you look at it against Memphis in the fourth quarter and Jalen wasn't in the game, but they were playing time lord and Horford and grant Williams with Tatum and smart, right? They supersized. And it was effective. We're doing it today against Brooklyn, where they have brown and Tatum, smart and then time lord and Horford. And if you have curry and Kyrie out there for the nets, at some point, one of those guys have to guard somebody plus Bruce Brown is short, too. So I was watching that game today thinking, ironically, the guy that the nets need to handle Tatum has been Simmons, who has the size to do it, who's, you know, if his head's right, one of the four or 5 best defensive players in the league, and yet we have no idea if we're going to see him. But I do think the Celtics match up pretty well with Brooklyn. Filio will be a different story because the embiid hearted thing and all the free throws and all that stuff. But really encouraging stuff to Celtics thing, you could feel it coming the last few weeks. It started to look better and better. And then these last two games were just something feels different from Tatum. Do you think there's anything with him being the all star starter? And that kind of last sign of, you know, now you're really there. Now you're on the top level. Guys are looking at a little differently because I feel like coming out of that. There's a different level of confidence for him. Maybe I'm overthinking it. You love that stuff. I'm dismissive of it. I'm not sure who's right. Yeah. I'm serious. I'm not saying like you're wrong about it. Think about when the streak started too. Oh, okay, Miami's missing all their guys. You know, Charlotte was missing Heyward's been missing. But you know what I mean? Like in the beginning of the streak, they put this winning streak together and you go, hey, any nice positivity from this team means something considering how bad it felt when they're below 540 games into this deal. But I still was nitpicking it to myself because I'd watched the game and be like, oh, this team was missing this guy. This team was missing this. Like, all right, cool. You won 5 in a row. All right, the defensive numbers you thought you'd be better, but it's not going to matter unless you're just a really, they were so predictable and.

"Maybe not quite as big as news as bradley. Beal and kevin love but it had been a couple of days without a team. Usa setbacks of course. it's news. I think joe harden at the athletic nailed it if it wasn't for bad luck team. Usa wouldn't have any luck at all because not only zack. Living going into health and safety protocols due to an abundance of caution this is his second time in a couple of months which means as right now team. Usa has one guard. Heading to tokyo. Damian lillard who is involved in a whole bunch of stuff right now dealing with the blazers team. Usa also sending four three former nba players from the selects team as backups but the silver lining is that team. Usa is hoping zach. Levine will be able to join the team in tokyo eventually. I don't think that they would that in the press. Release if it were out of the question so maybe this is a little bit more minor more of contact tracing thing like i said it was done out of abundance of caution which is certainly the smart. Move to make here but this team. Usa team just when it seems like they're actually going to start to play basketball and get to figure out what their team is going to be like in the olympics. Something else happens. Because zach levine. Had kind of moved up. The pecking order when bradley. Beal went out so now. We're looking for the next. zach levine. After the next bradley beal. Apparently it's going to be. John jenkins john jenkins jingle heimer schmidt. Fly over to. Tokyo might be running with team. Usa out there every single day. How are we getting a teeny bit of news every single day. Yeah it is crazy. They'll be hoping that booker and drew middleton will be joining them so yeah you'll have to more their in booker and holiday but it looks right. I think the hope is still going to get over there and that this is just them being super cautious. Contact tracing you know. Maybe whatever test goes wrong something and that he eventually joined. But yeah what were you gonna say lee well people talking about book and middleton holiday. But let's say go seven games then. At least one of those people will be wanting to party and celebrate but instead they have to fly to tokyo just coming off a grueling final series and have to play with guys who they're just going up against like it's like forty now they're flawed ad hoc. Yeah well then you have to go in and the climatize yourself with you and just keep on. Playing boss will like it's. I don't think that's the smartest idea. Know how you can beat the peak of your professional career. He then all of a sudden well forget about it. You just want a championship for at least one person. Now go out and play basketball with guys you know you know. These guys haven't played with them and just to me. I'm not sure that that would be the best. The they're not gonna come over there. The freshest healthiest and ready to team. Us ice right away so well and the first game is on saturday. Is it saturday. Play france at sunday. Okay so does them. A day there to get their own Anyway okay tasks anything to add to this be news. It is good news that they put it in the press release unlike bradley. Beal's press release that there was a chance that zach lincoln still joint but of course horrible news if he can't be there because of all this depth that they're they're struggling with. I will say watching the exhibition game against spain their last game since we talked about this. This this news kelvin. Johnson did look really good in that sort of slasher role as as just the guy their energy little guy just attack the rim i think is energy will rub off on guys maybe on draymond green a little bit because draymond has has looked a little sluggish and he said you know. The goal is to be in shape by july twenty fifth. And i think they've got a team right now but as long as these guys keep falling off. That's yeah i mean this. This is worrisome. That zach levine. Falls off the a and i do agree that it is going to be tough for booker middleton and drew to just come in and jump in i mean they. They need to play sort of supporting rules. But if there aren't starters then that's a problem that being said. I think you know being in there. I think they should feel decent enough. But you can't just you can't just throw guys we've never played together like drew and devin are out there together. Like that's that's tough. I mean it is tough against the rest of the world so hopefully act is out there. But i did like the way kelvin. Draw on both ends offensively and defensively to to add to whatever guide. Whatever rosser this team has left. It is pretty nuts. How they're just fallen off right now. Jeremy grant was also in health and safety protocols and he has since been cleared and is from what. I know traveling with the team to tokyo. So you know maybe that's a good sign again a guy. Like zach levine. Who eventually gets there. But this is wild. Yeah they start on sunday. Okay against france. A good team no pushover beating twenty nine thousand nine. Yeah i would still have the favorites for sure. I think most people would but yeah like as we've now seen it's not just a given because not just like chuck him out there and win. Don't worry they'll figure it out. It's not that easy with the rest of the world catching up so to speak so makes it exciting tournament when it feels like ooh they could lose especially when they start losing guy after guy after guy makes it a little spicier in terms of the games but not on sending horry mcgivney. Sending don getty. Yeah wow and cam. Reynolds is the rails. I mean those guys are hoping more guys fall off their dreams. We might have a crack antle. Yeah we're back in this thing all.

"If you're so narrow minded that just like you know what fuck do your fucking interested really lebron steph or katie. Fuck light inter- interested in for that. Then you're that you're missing one hell of a series windows roll the sports. I'm your host when the wall so glad that you could be with us jaanus. Drew middleton in game five. Tell you man. They fantastic fifth trio in nba finals history to each record. Twenty five points or fifty percents shooting in the game. They were the first to do this sense. Big game james worthy kareem abdul-jabbar the superstar magic johnson buck johnson in nineteen eighty five. Basically game five of the game with streaks. You could sit there and you know about. The defense wasn't any good but they were making shots and it was a game streaks in runs first quarter looked like the game is going to be out of. You know your typical game. Five basically where. There's been a lot of blowouts in game. Five in the game started like phoenix was going to do just that books trail by sixteen at the end of the first quarter thirty seven. Twenty one devon booker scored eleven reporter the teen speaking of phoenix. Hot summer day out there on the desert out here in the desert shut fourteen of nineteen from the field it in the first quarter the sun made a made eleven straight field goals that the longest tied the longest streak of shots made in the nba finals since nineteen. What in the last twenty years since the lakers did it in game. Five of the two thousand series. That's how strong it was but then again in the second quarter min is like you blinked. Took a five minutes news. A little bit between quarters and you know the trust that malingco andrews was wearing not me out a little bit man. I think was that thing was how that dress was hugging her tighter than how much i wanted to hug. Nikki black back in eleventh grade. When i first got the kennedy highschool dress was or so well. Doing a justice. Two bucks came back after. I woke up like the bucks started to make this comeback in by halftime. They took the lead in the world is like okay fetus was gonna come out strong phoenix mad phoenix. Who's going to try to not these guys out. Fifteen seconds of the first quarter. They're going to try to do michael spinks versus mike. Tyson will try to mike tyson vs michael springs. They want to try to joe louis. Best versus max schmeling. They're gonna try for the quick decisive emphatic knockout and again making all their shots to crab into place was going crazy. Thirty seven to twenty one. I was like okay. She looks like is gonna rock and roll goddamn likud. Interest is looking good. Who how take one hundred twenty second net woke up. Hold hold for a second now instead of sixteen is now. We're down to ten now. We're down to eight now. Down to six was up with this bucks showing their mettle bucks showing their comeback building bucks showing their playoff experience bucks showing the resolve bucks showing their playoff maturity bucks not panicking and out. Finally drew holiday. Had the game had the quarter that got him rocking and rolling and ready to go for the game that he had ultimately for the totality of it. Six fourteen point six or seven shooting in the second quarter had five assists during that quarter and before you knew it was brooke. Lopez's that right corner three. It was like damn. We've got ourselves a ballgame and let's give phoenix some credit. Also because these are some guys. That the exception of chris paul and jae crowder haven't been in this position before and you speaking about such a young team michelle bridges in the second season third season. De'andre eytan in a third season devon booker twenty four years old. He's in a fifth season. I mean these guys could have easily had the.

"He had no plan when drew stripped him and led a breakout at the other end so that was a bad position for two reasons. They didn't get a shot off. And then it led to easy easy. Breakout milwaukee on the other side of it as phoenix was furiously. Trying to come back in that game. I mean there's some criticism they've been players chris. Paul enough that play booker enough in game. Five anti sat too much and that's problem That's that's part of it. But there's just abe milwaukee's gonna shoot like that. I don't know if there's a ton you can do because here's staff that will throw at you. The suns in game five shot fifty five from the floor in sixty from three so fifty five overall sixty three the first time in history an nba team has lost a playoff game shooting at those numbers which again gets us back to the bucks. Big three and how. That's even possible but booker. You could tell. I love aidan. Call a timeout. At the end of game five they still had a shot clock in play so it wasn't like a straight run it down to zero antic shout renault. This but booker was inbetween decisions. So booker wasn't thinking about clock and then thought about clock and then by the time he kept thinking about all this stuff. Drew's coming off to help chris. Paul because booker has twenty four field goal attempts in the fourth quarter this series. He zero assists. Now there's one assist that was maybe going to happen. That one two eight bit jaanus broke up which will be his kind of legacy. Play for janas as much as chris. Paul trying to cross up janas at the end of game. Four and falling down and having a layup if this doesn't work out for phoenix that's gonna be unfortunate. Is going to be like mike tyson face tattoo for chris. Paul's playoff run all right. So we have that part now. Speaking of chris paul. Let's bring up this bullshit stat. You've seen running around. I get if you don't like chris paul. You're gonna pile on. I like him. I think something's wrong Whether it's mental or physical i don't know but even with the game five numbers that a couple years now if you looked at him and said hey you already talked about us pretty good. He made all his threes twenty and ten like he was pretty getting game five. I think he's still somewhat disengaged. Now i also saw some people saying like mani was sitting him because he wasn't playing well. It wasn't that significant. Monty has done a deal where he's tried to pay paul and bring him back strong for the fourth quarter. That's exactly why. Paul at the end of game four or excuse me at the half a game for played less than almost everybody that was a major rotation guy and you know look. I think they're just trying to find a to preserve him. But i'm not going to buy the. Hey he's older now. He's tired excuse when he lit up the clippers a few weeks ago and lit up The bucks in game one now. He's all of a sudden tired with three days off. In between so i'm not i'm not accepting that as an excuse but however even though i'm paul fan and of disappointed i'm telling you i don't think he's as good as the stat line will be in game five so i don't know what the hell to do with him. The piling on historical playoff trends stuff with him. Some of its fair this data. That's out there now is not an everybody's all over including espn which is kinda surprised. That went through because it takes you. Five minutes of research realize flaw. This is chris ball they blow this to oh lead he'll be the first player in nba history To blow to lead in the playoffs Four times now. First time it happened was an oh. Eight with the hornets against the spurs. That hornets team was not very good. They lost in seven to san antonio. And we're talking about two of the top four seats Go back and look at that. Two thousand eight hornets team against the nice role players. Not a great team. Chris paul guys are up to oh. They lost to a prime dunkin two thousand thirteen They're up to oh against memphis. Grizzlies blake got hurt. Blake played nineteen minutes. Four points in game five fourteen minutes in nine points in game six. If you remember that hurt game four he was completely different guy shell of himself so that was because at her two thousand sixteen to elite against the portland trail blazers. Somebody got hurt you know. That guy was blue to lead. It was chris paul and now this one which is far more agreed and horrible compared to any of those other ones because this is going to be on him. But that's the kind of stuff run like. Look you wanna knock him go ahead. I can't defend the last two games. I can't defend the effort deferring to campaign and major possessions at end of the game four. I i can't defend any of that stuff. And i'm to the point now where i'm like. Maybe maybe just. Maybe i was just wrong about this guy. I don't feel like i was. But maybe i was and we'll have to see where matt have to accept that at the end of it but let's end with a positive because yawn is at twenty. Six years old is almost the perfect either when a championship here because all the stuff that even though we loved the stars but the pettiness some of the bullshit and stuff about like is it really about basketballers about everything else. It's the moving around. Which again i don't really get on the players case for deciding to team because i think that's what this generation is so you can get mad about it but i don't wanna waste that kind of energy but i could be whatever to that part of it but still respect and admire the fact that jaanus you know isn't isn't there yet. Maybe he would be. Maybe they bounce out earlier again this year. You know granny just did the extension but maybe he would have bounce in two years. Who knows. I don't think i would ever rule anybody out after learning about doing it was san antonio but he has put together. Some assist games now is assist ratio is not necessarily that much higher on some of the advanced stuff In the playoffs it he'd go back to even two years ago he's about the same. But the usage rate has dipped down to the lowest usage rate that he had in a playoff season in the last three years. And this is somebody at one point. You're like okay. But he is. He a limited offensive player. Yeah i think it's still somewhat true. is gonna make free throws like all these concerns that we had about that we started seeing sort of amplified during the net series that they still got through that he's found ways to complement middleton especially but drew middleton when those guys have it rolling and yet his effort is attitude is like unflappable throughout. So here's a twenty six year old. John it's in his first. Nba finals looks completely comfortable. And i think as far as stars go his popularity like his approval rating that she rated here about people on morning television. His is already through the roof. Especially with that quote about the ego and your pass and all that kind of stuff you know not sure. I- hundred percent agree with it but everybody seemed to love it This is somebody that could be the face of the mba in a way. We may not have had before because he came in as a middle round pick. He's foreign people aren't quite sure. I was looking back at his rookie year. He shot thirty five percent from three easily the best of any season now. Some people think he got so jacked into shoulders so big. It's screwed up shooting mechanism Altogether so maybe. That's the case. But i would say that it's hard to find somebody who didn't like jaanus already. It's almost impossible now as he's a game away from mba championship to find somebody in the basketball world. Talks about basketball. Who's just a fan of basketball. That doesn't appreciate him even more if.

"Non-american of all time, you know, with, which was a larger one. But there's been more talent, but coaching was lacking. And now they have a, I have a legitimate birth coach and Mike Brown and light brown has got to 60 wins on the resume and a coach of the year. And so he said legitimate coach, and they've got that going for, but they shouldn't be beating America under any circumstances that one, that was the first game and, you know, in all excuses about we haven't played together, blah, blah, blah, blah blah, you should be better than that, you know. So I'm looking at our roster, you know, it's dead. Durant. Jeremi Grant Draymond who's now? How old is Draymond, bam-bams in his prime, Kevin Love. You want to talk about that? You Jalen Rose was right on that one. That I know a lot of people were killing him. I don't decide his comments, but his comments were basically, the only reason Kevin Love's on this team is cuz he's right. He's right. He's right. Kevin Love's been. He's also been in the USA System. Since he's been sold, fantastic to sell it. We shouldn't need a VIN love. You have saying and quote, unquote, we shouldn't need. Kevin Love. I would rather have any college kid. I'd rather throw Chet Holmgren over there to learn than Kevin Love. Cuz Kevin Love is not going to play. He's not going to play anyway. So I would rather throw a young kid over there who who's, you know, coming in Port Arthur Julius Randle in there. How do we not get Julius Randle? Yeah, that's a year. He had put him in there, at least just give you some time. It's just it's a very disturbing Curious. George The backcourt is Millard, Drew Middleton, and Booker, you know, I'm happy with that. That should be fine. I mean, and and then we got I got him and mid-sized, you know? Zach LaVine a right. You know we got Sacramento that's our team folks, you know? And and in that group, that's over there now. Who makes anybody better? Give me one player who consistently makes anybody better that? It's over there right now and even realistically, like I like drew a lot. He's your best chance because he guards and he's actually a point guard. But damn Lillard isn't making people bath Well you know all right we're going to have to win despite that right. Good afternoon. Score people. Here's a team, the team, the country with the most NBA you know juice know his.

"drew middleton" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd

"Of Disappointing instagram's for well holidays. Thirty pounds heavier. i mean. Drew didn't shoot the ball particularly well. You know it's funny like they need middleton to be shotmaker. They need to give thirty. They don't need drew holiday. They've got some depth. They've got an eight-man rotation they don't need holiday to be great offensive player. I thought tonight. I thought he kind of pushed chris around forced him off forced him to the side. He's not comfortable with. And i sat there and i watched through hauled and i'm like i don't need his points tonight. I thought he was a. I thought he was a huge factor on the defensive end. He's a funny player that we've if you've walked if you watch the league we do. He's a very very good player. He just hasn't he doesn't get on tv a lot. This is a high profile series for them now. People are pushing back going know. Everybody tells me that drew holidays underrated. Now he's overrated. Because i hear how often he's underrated. But i thought tonight you could make an argument tonight. He was as valuable as anybody on the floor. Except khris middleton. I'm still on. The drew holidays underrated bandwagon. Don't don't kick me off yet. i'm still with it. I'm still the like still like drew. Like we gotta respects ruse name and his game. Because i mean i'm being a little facetious here but yeah drew's giroux has stuck it up on offense board than you thought you know you know. Some people are calling him. Drew bledsoe right but menace. Har is hard to do what he's doing. It is hard like this is chris. paul. We're talking about this. Is patrick beverley right. This isn't like you know monterrey morris right. This is chris. Paul is one of the all time greats. His assignment is to make his life miserable at my less than a player he was so you just. You just need this right. You need to do that. And he's done it. We kevin durant like he's done it like you. Pick the player the series. He's done it saw. I think it's actually incredible. And they do knee. His office hits but if they could get packed cottages in brook lopez the try. It right likes but if pack hansson is airball threes. It kind of drew. I feel like if drew his shots. You can't beat milwaukee right but it will. Drew middleton are hitting shots were. John is being honest. You're not beating baloch but the reason you could beat milwaukee because those dudes all three of those shots all the time right but the job. He's doing chris. Ball noted reminds me of. And i don't know how this is going to shake out in vitals. Vp adult to put drew an air. But this reminds me of lebron being guarded by dollar twenty fifteen and he didn't stop lebron but he just made his life so difficult that overtime had this cumulative effect right and obviously chris. Paul is not putting up the numbers. That lebron was putting the back then late. Is you know you look. At some of those. Broad numbers like forty point triple doubles like how brazen etc. But he got his percentage down. He made him work and by the end of the series browse looking around at matthew. Delaware dove yoga. And i i feel like drew is that you're on the scene where he's like. Look i'm just gonna take the best cool the head of the snake and i'm going to make this dude not want to be here riley miserable and for that's a pretty significant. Sita is level. So you know. I still like phoenix to win this series. It feels like i picked phoenix and six will pick him and seven. They finished the season and the series at home. I do think you know. They prefer an uptempo and they're not getting it as often as they'd like booker was phenomenal. Tonight i mean the call at the end of the game. We can argue about but you know come on it. The intensity in the last six to and that game we we just got to get over it. That's the reality of it. You're gonna start going. They don't referees. Don't wanna foul out stars take lance so we can swallow way right. If you've run with a pandemonium in the streets but i do look at phoenix. And here's the upside chris. Paul was a complete. Non factor in fact was fairly miserable and i came down to the last minute and a half. I think if i walk out of here you know if i walk out of here and i'm phoenix and to the next three or at home i still like phoenix your thoughts. I mean i like these. are i mean game. Three milwaukee ran away. but you know they they. This was a survival right here. Like the triassic a coupla plays different way. You know didn't get that baloch right leg. You're talking about some different. So i i don't think they're out of the woods. All they did was hold her they have to win phoenix. I don't know how they're going to do that. They gotta win. Phoenix phoenix is incredible at home. 'cause in phoenix like buckle. Bridges becomes it all star like cam. Johnson never misses right. You gotta do phoenix. These user nets that they're so high and they play at the pace retargeted. About small marcus. They're so young teams. Play great at home but a blue collar. This is what this is where milwaukee. I have some hope these news. I've never felt this before this pressure thereabouts of feel for the next two days before they'd never been in a game five in the finals. Everything on a line. They never done a mayor that member. The member clippers close out game and they stunk. fiene was so tight object. I'm just like we don't know how they will respond right. You figure chris paul will bounce back. Due to good book is gonna be book right. We know he's gonna be aiden has been one of the most consistent players. It comes down to mikhail bridget. Well it comes out of chris paul not looking like he looks back rights but the you throw in its mchale. Bridges is to cam johnson right. It's their campaigns. Phoenix has this like conveyor belt of really good role players. I wonder how they are feeling right now. Our those shots now that this series to to his game five and his time right. I mean how will janas spare the free throw lot right like this out now. We got a series colin. Now is about to go down. And if i'm milwaukee. I'm saying i don't i don't know if these are cut like that they haven't been through this They are. they aren't even supposed to be here yet right. They've got to skip the step. So maybe they are ready. But i wouldn't put on it because phoenix is really that wraps it up for the week. We're heading into another.

"drew middleton" Discussed on The Free Agents

"Shops just a straight up. Tweet mistreat yeah team. Usa told man roster for the tokyo olympics has been announced gd. I think we have the tweet so we can show all the names if we do. Throw it up. if we don't. I'll just say kevin durant damian lillard bradley beal jason tatum devon booker. Zach levine kevin. Love bam bio draymond. Green drew holiday. Chris middleton and jeremy grid sneaks. In there i think hardened was not a last second but has ultimately decided not to go to because of his hamstring. So jeremy grant gets the called trae. Is this news how you feel about your usa squad there well. Congratulations steve united states of america and another basketball gold medal. I thought it was going to be tough to get star commitments. And they got kevin dang durant after. Lighten it up in the playoffs. Incredible commitment from k. D. i saw clutch points menton that these twelve players are signed for two point. Six billion dollars worth of basketball contracts and the team's pretty stacked here a nice mix of olden young kevin durant draymond green return from two thousand sixteen. Those are the only two thousand sixteen players to make the twenty one. Twenty twenty one team Which should be interesting. Obviously giving katie andrey mons history. I also love seeing kevin london as the old the carmelo anthony of this team his first time back with team. Usa since two thousand twelve kind of an audition for him. I feel like for other. Nba teams like. Hey kevin love. He's still got it. He's still making open threes hitting the glass that could be huge for his nba career. And then i love all these new names. We're seeing damian. Lillard getting his first turn. He's going to be one of the major names on this team and then olympic debut for bradley beal bam tatum booker. Levin drew middleton and grant. They've got defensive. Versatility draymond bam drew guys who can guard multiple positions the last time team. Usa played in a national competition. They sent brook. Lopez's mason plainly and myles turner. Yuck now we got shooting and scoring everywhere. But i am a little concerned. I wonder if some of these teams will change. Because there's a couple of bucks that are on this team and devon booker honestly on this team. They could go to the finals. Both of these teams they would play the game. Seven i think is july twenty second. Then they'd give plane book to fly out on july twenty third. That's a big ask a ball or if they do it the only guy. I'm surprised to not see considering the way the playoffs has gone. Trae young would probably get the ask. Over zach levine. But maybe he said no because he's still going right now. Yeah those three guys like you said. Drew middleton booker. Yeah there said even a four game seven. We'll be there. Because i think the first game against france on july twenty fifth on the other side of the world. It would be a quick turnaround team so stacked. I think you could still win. A game against france international team probably without some of those guys because it would either be well to one oral three. I guess it could be if they're playing the bucks in the sons but yeah. I think you're right trey like we sort of thought what team is going to be sent here. Is this going to be sort of a b squad here and this is. This is pretty elite tasks. I mean especially with key and all the scores. Were there any surprises to you. That maybe we're on the list or not. Just in general yeah. The quality of the players here just proves how much of a priority it is to play for your country and so that's clearly still high on the list for these guys for them to say after all this. That's happened this last year and a half in having a shortened offseason last year to still be feeling good enough to to wanna play so. I think there's a lot of about the truncated off season last year so they could have easily just no i want i want some aren are but it's important. I think they're going to do a good enough job trying to make it as as leisurely as possible and not as many practices as few a just as easy as possibly can be so. I am excited for that back. Line i think is always interesting to watch an international competition. You don't need as much coverage from your center in international competition you don't you don't have to travel far if you're kevin love and so he could be important. I mean just to be a huge body against some of those big international centers that they have that again are more back to the basket guys but dre mahnken chip in a five obviously and got bam so stacked once again superstock. Let's just get a usa versus the world competition. Go and make it a little bit more even the olympics. Just everybody band together. Usa versus the world. Let's just do it at some point. I'm i'm a little pissed. Mellow is not on this team. If i'm being honest like why not let them go for his fourth goal. He's the only one in history with three guest durant time here if he gets his third. Which again with this team. He probably will be jeremy grant. Sure i like getting the experience. But gimme mellow. They're li olympic mellow still easily. Give you twenty in international play Yeah that would be a great facebook because he's got a awesome. He's got a bronze medal to. I think from two thousand four. I think i'm surprised. It's going to get a silver medal this time because the finals an unusual choice but he makes these decisions from time to time. So no honestly. It's honestly when you lived and beal and kevin durant that's great because it's still great players who could have made that roster but this is a very very strong team so that is going to mean that. If the us i lose you know it's not going to be like it was pap in twenty nine nine hundred when i was like man plumlee on that team so it doesn't really count so look i think the international game you know these these other countries as we've seen that they've played together a lot of the times together it different competitions going through the years and it's always it's always tougher than perhaps perceived but the usa. We'll be favourite. They will very likely win the gold medal. But i also i think we're going to see some good games some good battles. They're so excited for it. Unless i have this wrong. This is gregg. Popovich is olympic debut as a head coach as he took the program over from coach k. There too so he's going after his first gold medal as they add because he was on the happens. Yeah right so he's taking over now. So maybe i hit. Maybe i had a small part in some of these guys committing to it and and going over there so i can't wait love. The olympic game love the international. Play this and you're right. I think they're going to win gold medal but some of these teams. he's international. Squads are actually legit good. Maybe they're in it for a half or whatever and maybe help. Maybe they shocked the world. We'll find out who's the who's the second best team in the world right now right now. Maybe i was going to say okay. It doesn't plan though right. Yeah that's are so many guys are not playing so good there with don't you just said he's playing for sure. How does no i know. Ben simmons is not playing but how does it look are all the other guys are are mills in ingles in. Yeah yup yup all those guys. I'm not sure if any of the younger guys like a seat. Gita your Josh green apply but binds. You'll probably bindi plays incredibly. Well i try to so we've been We've been so close to a medal in the last two world championships and olympics stiffed every time. So maybe this is the time. We're going to get through breakthrough right final headline.
