Clippers Trade Patrick Beverley, Rajon Rondo for Eric Bledsoe
"The clippers have reportedly acquired veteran guard. Eric bledsoe from the grizzlies. They will send patrick. Beverley rajon rondo and daniel otaru to memphis and the deal. This'll be bledsoe's second stint with the clippers. He was drafted by the team in two thousand ten and spent his first three seasons in la. This is mostly a money move. It saves clippers thirty million in luxury tax and it creates eight point three million traded player exemption that they will have a year to us so it gives them some flexibility moneywise bledsoe's going into his twelfth. Nba season the average twelve point. Two points three point four rebounds and three point eight assists per game last season with the pelicans. He was traded to the grizzlies before the draft in july. So think this is a good move overall. Money wise for the for the clippers. And you also get a good player and eric so people were kind of freaking out like us too much eric. What's it like. This is cleared up a lot of money with this. Also the way patrick. Beverley season ended with a clipper. That's something the way. Push chris. Paul the clippers organization his had a history of being not the classiest they now feel like a classy organization and that was a kind of a really bottom move. That was not it kind of felt like that was the end of the
"eric bledsoe" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"A grand entrance and sit in new thing now. Because that's the everybody showed up to summer league's but you know you're going to get a lot of pa out of and then you posted and you need to go all the way to use the weirdest nickname in sports. The brody i. I still don't get it. I don't know what call. I don't know how you got the name. Well i've read all the theories on it. There's the the wire character but that was bodey in that. Jd williams who played bodey in the wire. Look something like russ. There's some connection there. But he's never talked about that. So i think that's not a a lot of people think it just was a neighborhood term russ grown up in. La we're bro. Became brody like brody. But we're the duck came from. I don't know. But now russ calls his maltese. I've got a maltese. Lotta is will. how're you doing. She watches every second. She does not like you about j. Chip does anybody is the god's truth being ernestine sister and that's it period and her sister helped raise so that's all she does. But but the point is that he calls his maltese. The brody any calls his brother. The brody ran. He's the brody and lebron is using the nickname he's got all the emojis for lab lab work with the brody. Let's cool to us. Know we showed him love and right. Act like we're together right right because you need this guy to be not only on your team but sort of under your spell. We're we're. He's so respectful of laurent. That he will pay the price in the sacraments. You need to win with lebron and anthony davis. I loved the strategy. It's a very smart thing. And then of course he used the sarcastic. Line i agree. I don't think this will work. That's lebron james bryant sarcastic and poston where we all know saying into russ then he asks for us like he saying no we are gonna show him it will. Yes because it wouldn't work with kevin durant and it didn't work with james harden and it never quite worked with paul george because once he had his escape hatch he jumped right out of an even. There was the espn report. That cli- lynyrd ross. Is trying to call quite. Take me to the clippers. You and he wouldn't even return his calls and snaked him and turned right around right and said hey gorge wants out. Why don't you come with me right right. So there's a name for great pl- katie. James harden paul george and kawhi all did not wanna play with russ so you don't think lebron saying watch this. It's part of these potential successful story of next year. Is i'm going to show you. I can win with the guy. Nobody else wants to win within couldn't win with right right. I think the thing is what scared the other guys were. All trying to prove something. I believe k. D. could possibly play with with russ now because katie man championships. He has finals. Mvp yeah none of these other guys. Lebron has that championships finals. Mvp's so he has those thing his resume in tack so is like russ's knows and i heard rush they will. He don't have anything to prove to only box. That's not checked on. His resume is a championship. Yeah he has. He's led the league in assists. He has the most career triple doubles. He's been an mvp of leaks. He's been an all nba player. Now can you finish it off. Okay but he also has these accolades three times. He's turnovers four times. He's second this year four times. he has led this holy in usage. Rate how much do you have the ball in your this year. Four times he was second in the league in usage rates. That's eight times one or two of the last eight years and one game watch issue one time. nba champion. how about that. One that one over there. It sounds good but it's impossible possible what i believe in i'm going to speak for kevin here and he'll go crazy on social. I don't really care. But i believe if you got kevin durant on a lie detector right. Now he'd say. Oh i love russ like a little brother because he was my little brother but this man you just can't. Once he gets on a basketball court who knows what he might do. You can't control what he might have. Brian proved everybody wrong. They said there's no seventeen years old on the cover sports illustrated. They're no way he could possibly be that good. The number one pick overall in two thousand three. There's no way he can live up to all this hype. There is no way he could be four and six. Nba finals lawrence. Six for one as six. The wolf for one man to go to the media. Nba championship for all lakers are the celtics warriors. Even individual guler beverly good. There's no way he could miss the playoffs as a laker right. Got who it happened. Okay so i think this is the perfect strategy for lebron and i think russ will will just love it. He will accept. It will be in fact. I i think you're in jeopardy. You're gonna lose your fifth horseman status within the inner circle. Because you have doubted russ and lebron you. I compliment you i for it. I just lost your cash as you think the bridge just got you to do that. I'm not trying you did it. I didn't tell you to say you didn't i said is not a natural fit and i still don't believe it. It not fair. But i also believe if anybody can make this work. I will think that. I didn't think kerry james harden but what they showed me is that you can make it work. Everybody is willing to sacrifice. Yeah well james harden was willing to sacrifice the way he played in houston and not go. Get your fifty and fifty. Kevin durant is only one. Didn't need by kevin. Rankin goes thirty. Twenty thirty points fifteen shots. So that's all he needs anyway. Karratha get about the ball. I was score. Y'all will let me go do my okay. I'm cool with them. So the question is what role is be the point the to lebron get the ball. That's that's the thing what they determine how this is going to be played. We'll go from there. But no i don't think it's a natural fit. But i do believe lebron. James molden macgyver. Lebron remo macgyver. James do you remember macgyver. I do what could we do. Yup make little gadgets out of nothing. Low lake may data mugabe's where he coming about. You realize macgyver was a fictional character. You go you always try to rip t survive somehow survived in the end. This is real live. Nba basketball in. Lebron will not survive. This russ has what. I called the haywire gene him. He's supremely gifted program but he does. I think lebron even lebron james cannot reprogram. he is at heart. Just bull in china shop at the end of the game he just lose it he goes haywire and it's just dribble dribble dribble attack and maybe get foul and go to the freezer line and both free-throw you didn't know lebron james is only a couple of semesters.

Bucks Win Game 5 to Take a 3-2 Series Lead
"The bucks one twenty three one. Nineteen game five win on the road over the sons to pick up three two series lead kyle at felt like at one point it was going to be a big sons blowout. Sixteen point lead in the first quarter. It feels like at one point. It's going to be a huge fox blow out and then it gets tied at the end it. We got a really good game down the stretch. That was fun to watch man. I loved it incredible game. I mean a lot of fortitude on both sides to not go away and to come back with your like you said. We had a of lead shifts and changes. The bucks fought back from that big deficit early. We big shots. We had big miss shots. It was it was sort of a shakespearean play there towards the end it. It's amazing if that went ahead ended with like a game winner. Something that would have gone down as a pretty memorable finals game. Not that it won't anyway. But yet really entertaining drama heck of a heck of a gutsy performance by milwaukee no doubt about it and we have to start at that lachie side which holiday twenty seven points thirteen assists only two turnovers at three steals. He had two of this. Deals are going to stick in my mind for a long time. And the third quarter. He had the on. Ball steel against devon booker then took a poll up three and transition in the final minute of the game helping off ball on a drive by devon booker strips. The ball janas runs the floor and he throws the alleyoop to him for the dunk holiday. Both ends of the court all those. Eric bledsoe comparisons from games one and two feel like such a distant memory. Kyle holiday was extraordinary tonight. I mean what freaking performance at both ends big balls there. That's the only thing that comes. I mean those plays that. He made that one three that he took after he destroyed up rip booker. I was just stunned. That he had the stones to take that and he nailed it. Yeah and then the the presence of mind you know. The refs aren't going to necessarily call a foul like that. Every time in a situation like that i mean he kinda force them to make a call He he got a little bit of risk a little bit of hand on that swipe down when he came over weakside to steal that from booker but yeah when he when he threw that lob to janas. I almost thought he threw it over. The cylinder again almost threw it into the cylinder and when he did that stood up. Stood up in my office. I just couldn't believe

"Man drew holiday get traded to the Bucks or James Harden, because the way people are reacting on Twitter, my Carmen, it's like it's like the Buck's got James Harden. We want to know. Uh, Jason Smith show with my Carmen life from the Geico studios. We talked about this tonight. There's been a bunch of NBA a activity, not just James Harden and the rumors he wants to go to the Brooklyn Nets. Kyle Kuzma deactivated his Twitter account earlier tonight, so maybe he's on the move from the Lakers. I mean, this is just us playing Internet detective, but a trade just went down. Chance to Ronnie of Yeah, the athletic reporting that the Milwaukee Bucks get drew holiday. From New Orleans in exchange for Eric Bledsoe and George Hill. They're also getting three first round picks in this trade. Now, Lonzo Ball's gonna be really happy going great, but true Holidays a good player, you know, he's a good player. He's a 30 year old guard and you know he's his player. Efficiency rating is about 17, which is a little bit above normal. Eric Bledsoe is about the same as the same player efficiency rating. This is this is an upgrade for Milwaukee, You know, no doubt. But it's not like they got James Harden. And And that's the way people. Whoa! What a move! No, this is all this is this is a move to say, Yonas, Please stay. Where is gonna try to put different guys in and maybe this is gonna work. Just see. Look, we're moving. We're doing things to try to get you to stay. Well, wait a min. Ok, well, drew holiday is nice. But what about some of these other big names? You could have got me Chris? Paul, you could have got me this guy gonna go with this guy. No, no, no, we got today. Please don't leave. Please don't leave. We're doing things. Please don't go. That's kind of how I look at this trade Well, but I think that's that's the thing about it is we're talking about three first round picks. Getting sent. You couldn't Why I like holidays. Good player. Three first round picks is that That's an act of desperation. By the way, New Orleans and Oklahoma City now have, like 37 picks each in the next three or four drafts after this happens, but Is that the thing that's going to convince you to stay with the Super Max? They just traded three first round picks. Which means you know the the youngsters ain't coming. Right. This is what you got. I I don't understand the intruder. I like trade talk. Don't get me Don't get me wrong. I mean, it's great that were in the trade business for the N B. A. And the draft is on Wednesday night. All that is fantastic. To try to think this is what put you over? Well, give it up. Ah, lot of capital because I love your movies going forward. I mean, giving up the first round picks is that's never that big a deal for me because look when you're picking later in the first round. I mean, it's like it's just an asset to give away. Who knows if you're gonna get a good player or not really, You know that at that doesn't matter. But if I said to you, Okay, Here's the trade Eric Bledsoe, George Hill and three first round picks. You're thinking someone bigger than Drew. Holiday is coming back, he said. They just got this was the trade Bledsoe Hill in three first round picks for what you're not thinking Drew holiday. I mean, really, you're you're not You're thinking, OK, It's something bigger than that. Look, this is a nice move, And clearly the Bucks needs some kind of of different mix right? Because they had a deep team. They have the superstar. They have the details. So where they need a different mix, And certainly this will help them. But this is not, boy. This puts the bucks over the top in the east. This is like, Oh, well, maybe maybe this will be Different. Maybe it won't be. I've been but it but it's something different for Milwaukee here. And maybe this helps. This is not where I go. Oh, man, James Harden just went to the Sixers. And this is really this is really insane. That's crazy. This is not that kind of trade. Well, we still may may see a few of those before we're done. But this one while it gets the juices flowing, right, you get excited about it that that there is some movement being being had. It's really the What did the domino effects of it, I guess are are really the trade in a vacuum doesn't while me but doesn't get your desired result right? That yacht is buys in that the team. And ownership is committed to building what he needs to be a perennial title contender instead of one of the teams to get towards the end, but not really being able to get over the top. Right, because that that's where we're at. We've seen them dominate the regular season. Great. We know that doesn't matter. Go all the way back. There's a million examples but go back to the 73 win. Warriors. And win. What's it matter doesn't couple of cool trading cards and commemorative posters. Beyond that he didn't win a link, so it doesn't matter. Likewise, Yanis finishing first in the Eastern Conference. I mean, there are building any any statues nationwide for that one and holding you up as one of the greats, and that's where you want to go. So, uh, I would just assume there's more on the way than just this move. Oh, yeah, Look, there's gonna be a lot of things. The bucks have a lot of rearranging to do because they saw that Listen, what we had last year. What? We were a regular season. Great team, right? That's the Bucks off. We are regular season. Great. How do we get playoff? Great. All right now we have to move things around and figure out a different mix, And that's what this is. It's about a different mix. It's not let's team up Johannes when get two or three stars another start to come in and play. You're not going to do that, will ya? This is playing out a year in free agency. So let's just make let's move things around and let Striver different mix, and hopefully this all works out. We win. Big and Yonas will want to stay because you're clearly going all in to keep men. I can't say You can't do it that way. How lucky you ever going to get getting another, you honest, So they're doing exactly what they have to do. But this is more of a move where, if on the rest of teams in the East.

"If he has to accept the award, Ah and stick around for a bubble while the rest of the teeth is gone because they've been they've been out there. That would be awkward. But, you know, I get what you're saying about LeBron reminds you of Michael Jordan, of course in the nineties, where he probably should have one. You know, eight or nine m V p awards, But But I think he only wants three. I believe itwas, you know, because people kept trying to find reasons to vote for somebody besides my kid, and so you get all these different M v P s, even though really? Everybody would say, what should have been Michael. Join it. It's much the same with LeBron. But, yeah, you know, it's it's Um, I I I would have voted for you honest just because of the regular season that he had, and and that's that's that's what the criteria are. But I agree with you that it is. It is awkward, and maybe it's something and I know they've considered they haven't changed, but they have at least considered. Ah, you know, extending that. That that that M V P Boat into Ah Into the playoffs. Now for the bucks themselves. What do you think is the issue? I mean, one of it is my aunty is a very good team, right? I mean, they're versatile Jimmy Butler I've maintained for a long time is one of the best players and the most underrated player. In the league. Now he's starting to get his due just from the this year impact on wins and losses I've seen from him and in his various stops, you know, is it Is it going to be? Ah, you know, an indictment on Putin holes. They're being Ah, bad playoff coach. Is that the rest of that roster? Not having a guy to create for Johannes? Is it about Johannes? Not having you know that full arsenal offensively to create for himself? And is that talk of Johannes leaving going to affect him out? How would you assess? You know what happened to the bucks? Overall? Yeah, I think that I think you've hit on three things that are that are big issues there one. I do think. Playing with the pressure of Johannes possibly leaving has affected them. Um, you know, I think that that's that there's no question about that. I think you saw that affect the Warriors to some extent last year with with all the talk around Durant, you know, players like to say they tune that out. But you can't you just can't And And Of course, it's something that you hear all the time you think about all the time, So I think that's one thing I think the supporting cast Played better yesterday, when, when, when? When they needed to when when Johannes was out, But they haven't played that well when he's been in there, starting with Chris Middleton, who you know as far as being a number two to a superstar. He's a pretty low down on the totem pole in terms of in terms of quality of number two player to a superstar, and the number three is probably Eric Bledsoe and and you know, with the injuries that he's had on and he's just not that good. And you know, so the number two and three players that they've got on that roster. Really don't compliment Yonas very well. And then I think the biggest thing is wouldn't hold or, you know you could start looking now at a pattern going back to when he was in Atlanta. You know when, when, when they were very good regular season team, not a particularly good playoff team. Hey, doesn't make adjustments. You know, he he always approaches things like you know where the box is How we play. We're going to keep playing this way, no matter what, whereas other coaches are constantly making justice. Particularly Eriks. Pulse is probably better than it. Add it than any other coach in the league right now. Andi really see, I think bolsters severely outcoached impulses, So I think you could make a combination of all three of those things. Is Jonathan. You know, like we sit here and we talk about his m v P and everything part of its fair, You know, because to me like when you're at that level, people are expecting you to take over games and the like. Part of it's also not fair because of just the nature of his game, you know, and back in the day, you know, big man had that guy on the wing that helped them out or something like that. And that's what What Janice is, in a sense, It is a modern day big man, right? And Middleton is a very good player. He was He played like a star yesterday. But even at his best, he's not a creator. For others is that put Johannes needs is this you need to play with somebody who is able to be. I mean, not to say that he has to be the second guy or the Pippen or the Robin. What have you but just somebody that's on his level but is on his level as a creator. Yeah, I think that's a good way to put it. Um, you know, you know, I think of LeBron, of course with Dwyane Wade. You know that that that sort of combination where where LeBron was was the best player, But Dwyane Wade could handle the ball could create on DH was much closer to LeBron. Then Chris Middleton is Tio Ah and Jonah's in terms of talent. So, Yeah, I think that's that's that's definitely a factor there and, you know, look, you know Yanis Ah as a creator himself, you know, that was supposed to be one of his positives, but it just hasn't he. He's a pretty good passer, but he's not somebody who you want to put the ball in his hands and you know he's got a playoff other guys and then they just haven't been able to really do that. He really It reminds me very much of the situation. LeBron was in In 2003 to 2000 done in Cleveland, where they kept trying to bring in different combinations of guys. But you know, they wound up with, you know, number two options like you No more. Williams and Larry Hughes. You know, that's that's sort of where Milwaukee is right now, with the honest Robin Lundberg talking to Sean Devaney of the heavy Forbes covers the MBA here on CBS Sports Radio taking attorney show Now does that mean you think? You know we're going to see it play out in a similar fashion? I mean, do you think When we don't even know when next season is going to start when the season starts Yannis baby on another team or could even be one of those situations that plays out via trade. Yeah. You know they're going to have to have a conversation and I think you're honest has always been open with them. Ah, you know, he says he wants to stay in Milwaukee, but he also wants to win. So so that's going to be a ah, difficult needle to thread because you know if you're talking about three years in a row with playoff disappointment You know, it's tough is going to be tough. You know, you're only going to get to be a free agent a couple times in your life, and he's certainly in his prime. So you know, I think ahead of his free agency. If he's serious about leaving, then you'll see him. Ah am and his agent will have a conversation with the Bucks front office and and try to do the right thing and and and help them get Something in return for him. I don't think you'll see him. Ah, you know, pushing the free agency and say, OK, Ah model here. I think if he's going to stay, he's going to sign the Supermax that that they can offer this offseason. If he doesn't sign that, then I think Milwaukee's going toe I have to get the trade market going. Real quick got to get your thoughts on the other two. Siri's now that the Raptors and the Celtics are tied up in two and the Nuggets in the Clippers one apiece. What do your quick reads on those? Yeah. You know, I mean, the Celtics boy, They really blew an opportunity. Of course with that. And, you know, be three pointer with 30.5 seconds left..

"eric bledsoe" Discussed on Speak For Yourself with Cowherd & Whitlock
"So they warned me up, which should you do as a really good Eric Bledsoe, or Middleton, which you do pick and roll? So now John's is on the move. So it's harder to wall absolute. That's what it is. They don't have that guy was making them. Look, more could have been. And I agree with you. But at the end date, I, I'm watching them, and they're playing him like, you know, back in the day disrespect to the great been wireless. Remember how how they used to play even myself if kids, you purchase catch it at the top of the key back. If you, if you the big back all the way up to the choice. Enforce perk to shooter set. Right. And they don't want this to Jaanus and he is not taking jump shots. So in a way, he is getting exposed. But I think it's good for him. Because now he gets to see that he has things to work on thanks. Let me ask this, let me move to the second quarter. What's been more impactful? You impressed by or disappointed with how Jaanus is getting. I'm impressed me, truthfully unimpressed by Colli. But again, coup why can't do that by herself? Because Jonah start euro stepping and getting that lay. That's not just why that's green ESI box. That's Mark a soul. They're making them change processes. He's still came up. He feel garden, the likely it got general daily. All of the team you notice to you pass high school. You got injuries. Not that not a cute some happy. That's, that's not just general fatigue soreness. He all something occurred to him, and they'd just gonna keep it quiet because they don't want to expose. Well, I'm gonna tell you. I'm more impressed with. I mean that's what I'm saying. He is he showing kill Lou mentality that, that any Michael Jordan mentality. I'm fighting through it. I'm going to God you. I'm taking big shots down the stretch I'm still would dare legs. I'm still go been punch on you and dunk on you. And I'm leading this team. I'm leading to the raptors there following my lead. I'm not complaining. I'm doing my job, and I'm taking a big shots. I'm making the right place. And I got an applause Kawai man. He's doing a great job, which is the number say last two games, obviously losses at home for Toronto, five of nineteen genres for eleven points. So you say. Is not just about Kawai Gordon. Youngest. You're right. Because now if I'm a role player, and I witnessed John struggle gets our best defender. I gain a little more confidence. One is mater and help defense or even an ice. Oh, so what's happened is a collaborative effort Kawais leading the charge hampered hindered. And now other guys are feeling more engaged against Janas to while he's getting frustrated like to point. But my, my point is boon house. Okay in Atlanta, the best record. Get outta here. You didn't adjust just like my dantonio you don't and just just in the playoffs. I'm not gonna let you wall up my superstar and the other guys on their team. I'm not gonna put in place to read so my superstardom give released. So everybody else wall up on him, I'm often player. You wall up on me is something else. I can do. That's why he can't do that stuff. And to your point, not to go back to Golden State. But what happened during the clipper series with where would Kevin Durant and Patrick Beverley? Okay. Pat, Bill is on Katie. Okay. You know what Steve Kerr say you know what? I'm gonna take Katie. I'm not going to put the ball in his hand. Pat Bill could get into I'm running off a pin down. I'm running off a screen put him from the best and now and now is, is putting Katie and position to be more successful..
"eric bledsoe" Discussed on High Noon
"They finally showed up the bus bench. They did not Pablo. Do you think Toronto has a chance to win this series? They do have a chance and it's because I simple thing is happening. They're hitting all these open shots that the books have been giving them. And we have an unusual metrical kind of situation here in the games one and two. They attempted forty uncontested shots. They made forty eight percent of them by affective field goal percentage in games, three and four. They made sixty one percent of them in lo and behold, they won these last two games. So how the bucks adjust is the next question. I would imagine. You said is this thing is happening. Is it happening or did it happen? Right. Is this beginning of a trend or is this just what happens when you're row players get back at home? And suddenly they started looking better now. I can say now are have to say now the raptors had eight chance right? It would be crazy to say that they did not. I do not think what I saw something they can necessarily be replicated because they still only got three guys. They're bringing off the bench. This time those guys average forty three points. Are you going to get an pile that puts up another eighteen points that becomes the sort of question that we ask, and how they're going to do? But I also think the idea playing Bach Amore Margaret Saul less surprised to Nick nurse this long to figure that one out. Yeah. And what the raptors have done otherwise which has been really smart since game three they put coup why on Janas. And why has been really good on gone about as good as anybody has been defending freaky? The other guy they did they really made use of was Hess Calcio, who has raced Eric Bledsoe. So the bucks point guards are entirely. They were disappeared in this game. Right. George hill, brogden was nobody in Bledsoe was a total non fact, again the dangerous, Eric Bledsoe is. And this is the danger for the bucks. They are depending on their number three option being a guy who six feet tall. Right. And is. Dude, if he can beat you to the basket, he could score, if he can't beat you there, then when the dog is get around your problem. That's why putting the guy like Siaka mom because it issue because he's not going through Siaka in order to get any luck. It's that part is not going to work out, but I still feel good about what Milwaukee can do win come back hope. Right. I just don't feel like what we've seen from the raptors is other they're going to keep up. But I thought you made a good point about a Kawai guarding him. He's quick as Yata side to side. And he's about as strong as he, he's not that long. Right. But you gotta take the two that you got. And those are the two they had we talk about this all the time is how Hawaii, Leonard for all of his stature really is underrated in terms of his strength. The guy is Bill tease thick and all of the ways that can help against the guy, who's that much taller. And Kawhi Leonard I wonder at this point he is hurt. He is tired. They said that after the game, both legs we saw in game two got somehow dinged up is he doing a little bit of a decoy thing because the buck still wanna shut him down entirely. But the rafters are taking that. And they're. Saying you open guys now is your time to that would also be evolution in the game of Pua Leonard if he's doing that, because if there's a weakness that he's got festively that he's not a great playmaker. He only took with thirteen shots eleven shots, something like that in this game like he got the ball out of his hands. If he's getting the ball out of his hand this opens a whole new setup for the rap is the problem is, is getting the ball out of his hands passed into other Toronto. Raptors. But our next name, Kevin Durant, because Bomani his injured calf is really done nothing to quiet the conversation around him. You're now is katie's manager and business partner. Rich climate discussing free agency at the Wall Street Journal's future of everything festival yesterday. This is not been decided there's no hidden handshake agreement..

Go into the final six times won five of them gone to the playoffs. What twenty one years in a row something like that? I I agree with you this team and certainly coach Gregg Popovich in my book, maybe the greatest NBA coach ever, a certainly the greatest active coach in the NBA. Yeah. He he has nothing to prove. And he deserves nothing but gratitude from Spurs fans, and he's not going. Because he loves the sport. He'd never back down to nobody. That's true Rene. Thanks for the phone. Call man, we always love hearing from you Spurs beat the Milwaukee Bucks. One twenty one to one fourteen most more importantly with that win they extend their lead over the number nine position, Sacramento Kings till four full games. Now with fifteen games to play think about that. First second fifteen games to play if the Spurs go eight and seven just one game over five hundred in the final fifteen if Sacramento is going to catch them Sacramento would have to win twelve games. Sacramento would have to go twelve and three if the Spurs go eight and seven that's how big a four game lead is with fifteen to play Michael Bartlett joins us Michael Bartlett makes the Shogo from beginning to end, and I got behind the curtain. I gotta tell you Michael Bartlett was hooping and hollering and pumping his fist and bouncing off the walls. Through a lot of this game tonight when the Spurs were doing well, Michael your thoughts on this big win tonight a game that even Carl showning, and I agree is a signature win this season for the San Antonio Spurs. Yeah. It's definitely a signature win. Like Robert had said earlier. It definitely is up there. As far as probably one of the best wins this season. I'd say probably the the Toronto game in in Toronto the Toronto game here that was probably more of a signature game in my mind. Just because that was basically the whole team, obviously, besides Dijon. You know, when we got word Lee, basically about five minutes before before, you know, start time we hear that Rudy gay was going to be out with an illness. So in my head. I I mean that automatically it was going to be one of those things where you might have a Eric Bledsoe. You know, go off which he did early. Eric Bledsoe was you know, running shot on us in the first quarter. And then they pop got the defense situated, and he only wound up with I I mean, I say he only wound up with twenty one. But in that first quarter he had like the first like almost ten eleven points for the Milwaukee Bucks to to get them going. It looked ugly at first we were down by fifteen. It was I think twenty one twenty one to six very early in the in the first so it did look like it was going to be Ono. We're going to get run out of the building. But it would have been against, you know, the best team in basketball if that would have been any consolation, but we don't have to worry about that. Because those are ifs and buts. We got the w tonight. That's all that mattered. We get a monstrous game from my boy, let's starkest all-star dredge. Yes. And he and his Batman slash, Robin. Dhamar rosen. I was kidding with Bill earlier tonight. I was saying that I was expecting both lamarcus and demar to get thirty tonight. And I was hoping that Yacob was going to get a double double. I got close. You got real close to that very class. Lamarcus had twenty nine Dhamar had twenty eight and I you know, what? Spurs fans. Enjoy what is your Pearl right now. Because I'll tell you that guy is nothing, but a grit and grind does. The dirty work gets down in the paint kind of guy. He is. Slowly becoming my favorite player because that's amazing. I mean, and you're like the most hardcore Spurs fan, I know, and if yucca is slowly becoming your favorite player people need to pay attention to Jaka Pertile. He's four four from the field tonight three offense of rebounds. You know, he has eight total five boards. He had three assist threes. He I believe he was the the assist for lamarcus three. But he just it's that grit and grind. It's that that old school Patty mills that were so that we were so used to seeing that, you know, the the young manager nobly who would throw his body just throat into the wind and wherever he lands. It was one of those it's one of those kind of things you see him hustle plays. You see him do, you know, pull down defensive rebounds or go up and try and try to get offense of rebound. It's just it's that extra. Effort that is making me really really enjoy. And you know, just falling falling love for for one Yaacob hurdle and a lot a lot of people. Don't remember. He was a lottery pick. He was like number eight or number eleven when he was drafted. He was a lottery pick and people forget that he came in very valued and very heralded and maybe didn't live up to that lottery. Pick status in Toronto. But you know, the Spurs chip England this system they can make a player shoot better. They can make a player better offensively. They can make a player better defensively. I think Jaka Pertile is benefiting from the Spurs system. Definitely. I mean, exactly what you said. You know, when when the trade went down, and then everybody sees we lose the number two, and we lose Danny and we get back tomorrow. And then you know, everybody's trying to figure out who the heck is this Jacob. Know until we find out that's Yaacob. It. It's exactly what you said. Coach pop chipping Glenn will hardy emai- Becky they all figured out how to use Jaka Pertile. He is slowly becoming. You know, a what a pow Gosol was before, you know, before Powell Gosol got here. He wasn't really much of a three point shooter pop figured out how to use him. And he does with all of his players. You know, surprise surprise pop figures out how to use a guide to get him to play his ultimate potential. And that's what that's what's happening right now. You're seeing what's with the potential Jaka portal has. You know, went the sense they did trade away or not trade away since they did buyout out pals contract, you're seeing Yaacob get more minutes. We kept calling for it. You know? But there was one of those things where it was. It's not you know, it was a matchup problem. Because a lot of the league is a guard heavy league, Allah, the Golden State Warriors. But you're seeing right now the teams that they're playing and they're going up against he's pop is able to get Yaacob in the lineup and get him. Good quality minutes against good quality teams. And I'll say it again. Besides Golden State, and even you know, I'll I'll take a slight chance against Golden State. There is not a team in this NBA right now and in the NBA playoff standings that scares me whatsoever against the San Antonio Spurs. Because again you look at tonight's game. And that's without Rudy gay best in the league. You just beat the best teams in the league. The best team in the league. And oh, you only had four turnovers tonight. Only I did not see that statistic. That he and I believe that was we're all basically in the first quarter earned the first half. So you know, like you said if we can finish around maybe six or seven you get possibly at right now, you would get Denver or Houston. I mean, they're they're still only I believe two and a half games back from fifth place with Portland. Yeah. So again, Spurs fans, I know we always harp on it. But just because they loo- I I know it's easy to criticise when they lose. But as you look at it with one eight straight at home. This is our fifth game in a row that we've one where all the fans that are saying the Spurs are back now if we lose again, if we lose to Golden State, it's all pop doesn't know what he's doing. You know, everything is is crumbling. But every team does it granted we're not used to it. But you can see what a five six game winning streak can do for you. So hopefully on Tuesday when we played Dallas Rudy will be good to go. I don't know what the illness was so hopefully, it's just maybe a quick bug. Maybe he hates something bad. Who knows? But luckily, it's just going up to Dallas. So it's not that far. They can sleep in, you know, tonight sleep in their beds. And I believe they're going to take the plane tomorrow. So all in all Dan Goodwin. Damn good win tonight. You know, the four turnovers total you hold the best team in the league to one hundred and fourteen points, you make the Greek freak Jaanus work for all of his points. I think that was the I think that was the main thing, you know, they they hold him to twenty seven points in you say hold, but he he's ten of eighteen from the field. You know, six of ten from the free throw line, you made him work for every for every point point, Mike, you made him work for every point you through the kitchen sink, Adam and all in all you got the w and that's all it matters..

"But that said I kind of get what kyri is saying. I still see could see this team bringing together and winning east because I just believe that much in their talent. Now if. If they gonna play Philly in the first round, and they would have to potentially beat Philly in the first Milwaukee in the second round and. I don't know who would who would be left on their side of the bracket. But if they would have to win if they would have to then be Toronto, basically, all three other of the best teams, that's an incredibly hard road to hoe. And I. That said I kind of understand where kyri is coming from. Because I respect their talent. And. I don't want to say the put down Milwaukee Milwaukee, by the way one last night in Sacramento every game Sacramento's playing right now is doer die. But he healed played great. Jaanus only play twenty five minutes because he's not a minute restriction with a knee injury. Chris Middleton cramped up and couldn't finish the game. So they're out there in overtime on the road and Sacramento and Eric Bledsoe, bring them home with triple double. Like all that team. Does win. There's nothing. I is that I can say about Milwaukee, but compliments, but I still I still kind of get kyri is saying, and maybe that's my time around. Lebron? I talked about this earlier on the podcast this week. I still think I would put Boston is my favorite to win the east. I do it with a bit of a red face. But I don't know. I still believe it. Maybe I'm a fool. Well, I don't know that you're a fool because the talent is there and see I would buy into what kyri was saying. If I thought when he was at for instance, after that Chicago game when he said what he said if I believe he really meant it. But I don't believe he means it because I see the frustration. Spill. Over all last night. Go look at the there's footage of him being frustrated on the bench at the end of the Chicago game when he was trying to make make a play..

But things change as you get into the final seconds not just in this game. But in any other game, here's Kyrie after after the game. Big screen. I don't know if you've got out or not on the web. And then I had three point five trying to make the best way. Hello my money. So he's not gonna say anything. But then you ask us and you get a rather expected answer. It was a clean shot. Yeah. Very I guess they were convinced that he got fouled on that flavor. You split. Yeah. Offing so far. In my view. Now, I gotta go wide segment, but he was a clean shot. But he just missed it personally in my take it. I don't know if you've seen it out there listening in radio land. I wouldn't have called the foul. I'm good with the foul not being called. Now. If you put this game in Boston and not Milwaukee is a call. Could see it. But I'm okay with this in that moment in that game Janas, by the way, thirty points. Twelve of those are the four thirteen rebounds, six assists. Milwaukee gets the win over the Celtics ninety eight ninety seven those really the biggest games if you missed this one Cleveland Phoenix. I don't blame. You Cleveland got the win. Why is that big it only separates Phoenix from everybody else when it comes to the chase for the worst record in the NBA?

"So we'll see what happens with this upcoming draft that very top hitting the time. I feel super confident on here. But yeah, we'll see that. So let's let's talk about one of the guys who has still kind of a little stalled out because you already talked or you mentioned a minute ago, which is Dennis Smith junior. Dallas initially look like they're going to try to trade him. Then they patched it up with him. He said some really nice moments, frankly, next to Luca, and if Dennis Smith junior is okay with not being a primary ball handler. And I think that that that is certainly factored into it to the the tensions there if he's okay with that. He can be a great secondary guy. And obviously, he's got all that explosiveness and athleticism. He when he's applied himself defensively. Like, he said some really nice moments especially there was a game against the thunder. He was guarding Paul George a couple of weeks back where he just really got after it like he he clearly has shown his utility in this league. Why do you think it's not working out with Dennis Smith junior? I like I believe it's more than just the fact that they got Luca. Record yet. I compare at a college to Eric Bledsoe. I feel pretty good about that comparison in terms of what type of player he's going to be. I don't think he's the guy that you want making all of your decision. Clearly as a equally brings value with his scoring ability and athleticism, and you know, when he wants to can really lock in defensively. So it's about adopting this new mindset that you know, and not elite least guard anymore. That's luca. He's he's too special with the ball in his hands. And I got with that to kind of be that number two playmaker and score. And that's I think he can really excel on excelling if he embraces an accepts that role because then back to high school. He's always been the number one guy a ball dominated highlight seen a lot of hype surrounding him. And now he's no longer the believed garden and the best player on his team until I think if he really doesn't brace that it shows pretty impressive maturity because again coming into college scouts has these mentality. I heard stories about him getting into fights with teammates, and he was isolated from the rest of the team. And and didn't even want to be there to see in some games. You could just see it with. Playing bodyline guy never to society of maturation and Creighton we've got to him I shooting forty five percent for the four which is pretty good. It was never going to be a high high assist guy. Just based on it is mentality and style of play. But I think you've got a chance to make it work next to Luca if he embraces debt that role. I think the one that Bledsoe kind of has a Milwaukee. Yeah. It's interesting. Someone told me a couple of weeks ago. They'd heard that the magic who have already, you know, kind of gotten some cold feet about Moba had offered Bomba for Dennis Smith junior because Dallas it had interest in baba, you know, prior to that draft and Dallas Dallas said no to that one don't know how much truth to that. That was one that kind of made the rounds week or so ago, but interesting how quickly teams can move off of a guy that they not very long ago were so sold on like, it's very rare for guy Dennis Smith junior or anybody to be in year two and already be on the trade bloc when you were drafted that by much less. You know, Bomba who was drafted, you know, obviously less than a year ago, experien- usual. Yeah. I mean, any thoughts on Bomba so far. I mean, it's you know, look vucevic is having a huge year there. And you know, nobody thought that Bomba was a finished product coming on anyway. So that feels a little hasty to me, but any any warning signs that you've seen or anything you thought coming out that that has made you giving you some pause aren't your Quaker grooming. Any? Become too hesitant..

"WTMJ. Let's hear more from Gail Klopp at Buddha Holzer. Gale here courtside with coach, bud. Coach let's dive into our win against the Mavericks on Monday. We started out like a house afire brook Lopez all over the place, but we struggled in the second quarter and half time. We were down by two. Yeah. No. I think the the second quarter was was really. One of our quarters were we've probably both ends of the court play as well as we'd like to. And I think we paid the price as you mentioned. We started the game. Well, we we were active play some. But you know, I think there's close in a game. And and that's up to third quarter. We really work on both sides and reestablished ourselves. And then we're able to make enough plays down the stretch to win the game. We've talked earlier about Eric Bledsoe. I mean, he's just been tremendous. Do you think he's playing the very best basketball of his career right now? Well, certainly, you know for me this housing first time first year this last four or five or six games stretches spent his best basketball. I think they started with the game at Atlanta. What was that nine ten days ago and each night since then he's been really really good. I would say all year been really really happy with the way Eric does played defensively so disruptive and offensively he can do things that are really make our offense work, and we'll certainly have playing at a high level really important to us and just happy for him. You puts a lot of time and work and effort and. Really big big believer and big fan. And so happy for him and his success. Don't you? I've heard Malcolm brogden say that when Eric Bledsoe plays at a really high level. The bucks are lethal. Yeah. No. I mean, I think. Bled. Bled. Has you know, I think the athleticism and the pop the you know, when he's playing at an elite level at this. You know, he he can do some things that really make it tough on the opponent on both sides and opens things up for steam a selfless things up. I'm south and. He's he's just got some really special, you know, athletic guests. But what you know kind of plan is a game. It's really special and we'd be remiss if we didn't spend a moment talking about Malcolm brogden right now, he's on chorus for ninety fifty forty nine hundred fifty forty season coach about tell our listeners what that means. Yeah. Ninety fifty forty ninety ninety percent or more from the free throw line fifty or fifty percent or more from illegal overall field goal percentage than forty percent or more from from the three point line. And so. It's very rare. You don't see it very often. Now when you talk about the guys that have done it, you know, with the ashes of the world. I think maybe Dirk Nowitzki. Just these really really great shooters and dies. You know, I think can score at different levels, but do it consistently and really can't have slob. Ninety fifty forty died. I don't know how many of them there have. But but but not a lot. I can tell you that one of the things that amazed me with both Malcolm Brogdon, and Eric Bledsoe is incredible body control that they seem to have as they drive to the basket and get close for a layup. Yeah, they both do and they're both a little different. You know, Malcolm is so strong and his shoulders. That great wingspan. So when he extends to finish the basket very unique. And just you know, it's been really good for us. His drive in trouble. Dr game. Glad know just as we're talking a little bit ago. Just you know, he's got a burst the speed and then a strength. But I think he can get get by guys. And then. With the quick finishes. And then you know, I were laughing a couple of days ago about the theme just loves it. When he gets up and dogs, you know, whether it be in transition the half core. I think it gives the group of trade energy. They're both just great under the basket vanishing and in the Monday game coach with the Mavericks. You saw another young star. Look at just nineteen years old erect up his first triple double of his career. Yeah. Certainly impressive young player. Dally south of the great great. You know, ahead of them with with him as a kind of foundational fees. I thought I moved at a really good job of making him getting a little bit out of his tougher making his life more difficult. Or still ends up. You know with a triple double. But I was happy with the defense when they after we put on. Commands a lot of attention which Perv rookie is. Not not not the norm. But certainly certainly a special player and another player from Europe. Yeah. Now, the from Slovenia and guys impressive. The. That they're having on our league in our sport. And I think I'm playing in the DM Spain for the last two or three years. Copy semesters had in that league. Euro league I have so much respect for European basketball for the coaches the players. I think considering what he'd done there. How well he's playing. Now is is it makes sense because you can't do what he did in Europe. But I've been a really good player being prepared to come and play on the NBA. Well, coach it's time to look ahead. And as the NBA schedule goes the bucks are having a pretty late week. Really? We don't play again till Friday right here at home. But then I really tough test five straight games on the road, including the Oklahoma thunder Toronto and Golden State out on the west coast. So it'd be real plus to be healthy and rested. Coach. Yeah. No, it certainly our health is always going to be important to us. You know, the more we can maintain that it's going to help us. And now we got a couple several days this week was without a game. And like you said Friday against Charlotte, and we've got Oklahoma City and five on the road. It'll be a great for us. And I think our guys are prepared for it. And I think. I look forward to going on the road.
