"But the last guy that was able to actually dictate where he was going into Trey like this, that I recall was Carmelo Anthony and that involved in Knicks probably giving up a little bit too much in order to get him. I don't know if they're going to be able to make this happen again. And the other variable, of course, is the ownership of the pelicans, because they've turned over that whole front office new, medical staff, knew all this to make Anthony Davis and future. Anthony davis. Dave. I feel like this is a good team for them. But really, it's still run by gale Benson who may not want to do a deal with LA even still Davis's Davis. It's, it's that easy Morris more I Davis Davis's a lot of extra effort. This is the place. I wanna be. I hope they draft me. Said RJ Baird about the Knicks Pablo. Do you think the Knicks should be anywhere near as excited about RJ Barrett as he is about them? He is very, very thirsty to be a Knicks. Like he has said he's not going to work out for that Semur that seamer that team. He's only working out for the New York knickerbockers, which is great except that is anyone in the really excited for RJ Barrett. It feels like they're most excited for the possibility that RJ RJ Barrett might be an asset to go. Get the F mentioned Anthony day, we'll know if they do have RJ Barrett. They will then get excited about RJ Barrett because that's how the draft words, right? You go into get excited about them because what else do you have to do other than be excited about them? Nobody wants to spend the off season just ruling what is going to happen. Nobody is better at triggered themselves into optimism than fans of the New York Knicks, so they'll get gassed. But you're right. He probably serves more to the imagination as part of a trade package to go and get Anthony Davis. We'll see if they actually pull it off. And I mean if I'm the pelicans, I feel like I actually saw. This RJ Zion thing went you keep RJ. Yeah. A really inefficient, gunner who loves to shoot and loves to ignore. Teammates when big games are on the line. That was his rep at Duke. But now we have speaking to the optimism or the lack thereof of New York, we have this. Yeah. This is how you make all news local baby, Kevin. Durant goes down. Knicks lose game five in. It is something of relatively poor taste to view. Kevin Durant obvious misfortune through the lens of how it affects the hometown team. However things we're going to be a lot more interesting around here come to play here for one reason, or another. And that is lane on, on the on would yes. And in New York he was supposed to be the messiah saving basketball. But the weird thing about this thing and Golden State that just happened last night. Now he is actually more messianic right? He sacrificed himself for his teammates, and now he's so deeply popular. It makes me wonder the motives, that this guy had to coming to this city, we're based on the idea of. Finally, I can save a franchise. He kind of just accomplish that by lying on the ground, as you know, he did. He save them. They want to gain while the right but if he sticks around the prospect of having all that money on the cap with one year where he does not play. And then when he comes back, and he's probably not the same guy. Does that sound like love to use that sound like something sustainable ambition alone coming up next? Michael Jordan, flew gay anniversary. Basel Lagos to call people idiots behavior of he didn't like it. I didn't say I wouldn't go do. He's gotta say, that's pretty cool.

"And no matter what you hear about gale Benson, not wanting to deal Anthony gave us to the Lakers, unless she's just terrible as an owner if the Lakers can present the best package. And that's what's going to have is gonna take David Griffin. Now look at the end of the day, she signs the checks, but I do believe the David Griffin will present her with what he believes are the best offers in the order. He believes that they are. And then she's going to have to make the ultimate decision because again, she signing the checks and that, that becomes the challenge of dealing with a new owner and she is new to the sports game. Right. She basically inherited the team from her husband, who's since passed and she's trying to figure this stuff out on the fly. Now, she's got people she trusts on the football side. She's empowered David Griffin to my knowledge. Loas also backed. Up in his most recent podcast, griffis someone you can trust. So I think she's going to I hope she is going to let him make the right decision. Ultimately, you have to remove the ego from it, right? Because you know during during the trade deadline that went frankly sideways for both teams. Yeah, it became clear they did not want to get pushed around by team. Clutch and Rich Paul, and I have the terms dictated to them. So they, they went out of their way not to if you believe Magic Johnson operate in good faith with the Lakers since then a lot of time has passed. Right. And if you can't sell Anthony Davis on playing with Zion, which by the way, I don't rule out. Yeah..

"Right. Right. You can do a lot of things in life. Short term without a superstar. Right. You can do a lot of stuff. Stephen Jackson, a veteran newsman John juillet. Turn on the news. This is the heard line news. So count, it's pretty clear the pelicans would prefer, not to trade. Anthony Davis to the Lakers, because, you know, they believe the Lakers kind of manipulated the situation gotten to force a trade didn't want to deal with them. However, the pelicans hatred of the Lakers may actually, be stronger than we thought, what this is according to ESPN Jackie MacMullan. So a very reliable source apparently gale Benson may have put her foot down about this. The owner of the pelicans, Jackie MacMullan this, we've been told I think through channels. Most of us have heard the same scuttle, but that gale Benson has basically told him David Griffin to the Lakers over my dead body. And this is what we said three days ago, and there was a lot of pushback from MBA sources that David Griffin has a free rein, gale Benson just thinking about this. Think about the city she runs, so she owns the pelicans and the saints. Right. Let me ask you who do the saints lose to? The LA Rams and thought of that, okay. So there are a little sensitive in New Orleans, about L A. The Chris Paul situation who's been bashing him for years on that. The L A Lakers. What team ripped the pelicans and their competency during the trade deadline LA? It's not a Lakers thing. It's an LA thing. New Orleans is got a big on a chip a mile long on the vibe out here on the Braun on magic on Chris Paul on and gale Benson is at best beyond her income is derived from the saints and the pelicans, those fans do not wanna see Anthony Davis traded to Los Angeles. And especially the Knicks are going to offer a better pick Iowa. I think so you're unless they come in with a horrible offer. You're basically going to take the better deal regardless, and you get to not trade him to the Lakers, which is what the fans really want. Listen, Lonzo ball was having a very interesting season. If he doesn't get hurt and Lonzo ball 'cause he. Was playing well with LeBron. If Lonzo ball doesn't get hurt. And I say, coups Ma Lonzo in a bunch of pick that interesting when Lonzo ball got hurt. I had an executive, tell me he's going to have an eighty game schedule season or like he's off the block people. Aren't interested in the dad, and he can't stay healthy like Lonzo needs an eighty one game season. He has spent the last two years hobbled, and when he got hurt, he'd his, his value in the market Lonzo ball, deteriorated significantly. So there's no doubt that these Celtics had a very disappointing season, especially for certain radio hosts that may have picked them to beat the warriors in the finals was kind of a miss now. One of their owners wit Groesbeck talked about this year struggles. We're all annoyed and upset and disappointed. I feel like there was a mismatch between the talent that we had on paper in the way that it was expressed on the court, the actual and potential. There was a gaffe pretty frustrating for everybody concerned. Not least of all the players. It was one of the hardest teams to love from my standpoint. That's definitely. They were not a fun team to watch. They ju despite the talent they were not fun where do they go from here? I go back to this kyri leaves, and you get nothing our for Gordon Hayward. Jason Tatum will revert back to his rookie year when Cairo. Yeah. Jason Tatum was fine. Kyri didn't help his gaming hurt. His game. Terry Rozier, Marcus smart Brad Stevens. They'll draft somebody Boston's gonna be fine. They'll be a top three team people are forgetting this. So the Jason Tatum had a great rookie year, an initiator. He had. Moments. But he deteriorated in the playoffs. The you don't think kyri was part of that kyri leaves. He gets more looks people live in the moment. They're like, oh, Jason dams. Oh, good. So you want me to believe he was great as a rookie..

"Two more first round picks from the Kristaps Porzingis deal. So if. David Griffin and gale Benson owner don't get their wish. And they're not able to keep him there. Imposition. Now, also to make the trade for him but really jump started rebuild with another franchise player coming in Zion Williamson. So there's a few things that just to kind of keep people like it was, it was for Knicks fans. I am having a very bad day, but in terms of not getting Zion. But the stuff that will just talking about there in terms of their trade valleys in the stuff, they actually did pretty well based on the rest of the lottery because all those picks they get Porzingis will now play through and they can Adam to the packages and all that stuff. So the Knicks have the number three pick these other these other. Draft choices and a couple of decent young players like Kevin Knox. And, and guys like that, that Robin Robinson might throw into a deal. Dennis smith. Did either of you watched the draft live the lottery live? I couldn't I was somewhere. Soccer pro had maybe one of the most savage lines of the of the night without even knowing it. He was they were he was on the panel with everybody. And they were talking about when the Lakers got to the eleventh came up and the Lakers, weren't there. He then said, okay. Wow. That means that the Lakers are going to be jumping into the top four that means that they have a much easier time to, to, to make a move for Anthony Davis, and Kyle Kuzma sitting right there right in front of him. While he said this, and calicoes would probably be one of those guys that move in that trait..

"But that gale Benson is basically told them to the Lakers over my dead body. So whatever's is other chil, wait and see what happens if the Lakers win the lottery next week on my position on that whole thing is I think there's two things that we can that I can say with reasonable comfort in talking to the party's here. One is that Anthony Davis has not changed his position on on a New Orleans to David Griffin and the new the pelicans franchise would like to be able to offer Anthony Davis, the two hundred thirty million dollar extension, formerly and have him formally turn that down. They wanna cross every t and dot every I they wanna know. That I think the last thing that they want is for there to be stories in October. We're Anthony Davis says while they never even offered me the contract because we know the things that this right? But one of the things that happened with the Spurs and co why now quiet soured, and there was a whole thing would ever happen there. The Spurs didn't exactly run out and hand him the the max supermax offer they before before they traded him. They did did hand it to him. But it was too late. And so I think that the pelicans wanna go through that process. They want to know that they exhausted all matters and number three. And I think this is important no matter how the pelicans feel about the Lakers, the reason that they can take the position that they don't want to do business with them as the Lakers don't have anything that they want that. Oh, two things would have to happen one. There would have to be a change in circumstance, which would be. The lottery potentially bring pick in that could change what their package that they have to offer to an I've suggested this since February. And I don't think the Lakers are Erica Lakers aren't a functioning operation right now. But if they were a functioning operation, if you don't have the pieces at a team wants to make a trade, you say, what pieces do you want, and I will go out and try to get them. That's what a functioning front office would do. So. Brian all the doors while the door is closed. I wouldn't say the door is dead bolted there, but the door is closed and by the way, Jackie I'm one hundred percent agree with you about the Lakers as time passes here. I would have said that this was impossible for many months, but as time passes here, and as the possibility exists that Jason Kidd could be hired as Lakers coach. I think the possibility of Kyrie and the Bron reuniting is that door, which was deadbolt. It has now been undone bolted and is now cracked open. Definitely no question. Opening more maybe opening more by the day. And and I say that not because I just I just think it's on Kyrie's radar. It's on Kyrie's board. He is had discussions with people about playing for the Lakers. But as you said, it's very difficult. I asked him playing Brian. I asked him point blank this very question. I think I told you this. I shared this with you. We were doing a story that will on. Oh, maybe even on the NBA happiness story. I forget, I don't know. And I said, you know, what everybody's saying Kyrie they're saying. Now, you're going to go about LeBron. And he looked at me. And he laughed. I said is that it? Yes, or no, and he laughed again. And he put his arm around me any any left so much. That was the release ago three or four weeks ago. So everything's clay look everything is in play with him right now. Because he's I mean, I've been around a long enough to know that he is. I'll tell you. I'll tell you a little story. And I'm going to usurp story that I'm gonna I'm writing about a story out pressure that will come out during the NBA finals at some point. And it talks a little bit. I'm gonna I'm gonna give you a little preview one. I talk to carry for the story. He hit one of the greatest shots ever. And I asked each player it's going to be in the story. And that includes Jordan and curry and Durant some others. What's the big shot you ever hit? What's the biggest shot you ever missed?.

"Going to take several months to look at things in en Las. Saints appellants owner gale Benson earlier today. She just told you she just said several months to look and analyze what's going on talking about the proposals that are going to be kicked around and talked about and debated this week at the league meetings involving pass interference and reviewable plays expanding replay. Again, that's why I arrive at the conclusion that you're not going to see a solution this week on the expansion of instant replay. I just don't see it based on what I'm hearing. What you just heard right there? Dennis Laotian echoed at somewhat something similar to that. When we spoke to him a team president and just folks around the league kind of saying the same thing these owners want some dialogue, but they also want to take time to make sure that they're not right back in the same boat. They were before the Nola. No, call the texture and seventy eight seventy says four zero three six I need. I see no change for. No call. Roger has to have his way to cheat. I get it. I get the disdain for Roger Goodell. But it's really Roger has. No, no voting power here. It really it really does come down to the league and come down to the owners. Another texture says seventy four fifty nine says, they will probably shelve until the eleventh hour, but hope the pass before they pass before the season starts, that's probably where it's gonna go down seventy four fifty nine. I think it's going to go down to that eleventh with our right in preseason. And they'll then they'll add it for the regular season. So a lot of it's a one year trial basis if you will. We'll see if they get it done. I don't think they will this week. Once your phone calls at five zero four six zero one eight seventy text eight seventy eight seventy also do you like the idea from the Denver Broncos that basically would allow you to forego and onsides kick and take possession of the football for one play fourth and fifteen you convert that fourth and fifteen and you maintain possession of the football. Basically getting rid of the onsides kick late and ball games. It's a one time deal throughout a game. So what do you like about? What do you think about that proposal five? Oh, four to six hundred seventy text.

"Sources told gale Benson had told associates. She wanted an overhaul heloc ins with the GM who can command take command of the Davis trade talks in reshaping the team's future. Whoa, jr. On who they may be looking towards to replace Danny ferry who's been a consultant with the organization. Former GM in Atlanta in Cleveland. He's a candidate. I'm told to be the interim GM, and I think the organization we'll take a look at him in this role. You know, one candidate who is available David Griffin. The former GM in Cleveland is for the pelicans. They need to be really focused on as someone who can organize and execute and Anthony Davis trade and then draft picks and asset you're going to get back from that. They've got to have someone in place to has a track record of drafting. Well, be an excellent talent evaluator Orleans, just a free agent destination. They're not going to build their Chiba way. They've got to do a better job through the draft touched on fairy a former GM with the hawks and Cavs did Dem's deserve this fate. They didn't need to happen. Now will came with this perspective. I'm not telling you the Dell Dempsey's blameless. I'm not telling you, even then he deserves to continue being the general manager of the New Orleans pelicans. He has been for nine years. They have made only three playoff trips in those nine years. It has been a fruitless effort to put a winning team around Anthony Davis. It has been a failed attempt to convince an all world player that is futures with you because you can build it around him. Tell dims has not convinced anyone of those pillars of successful organization. But why today why after AD lease the building? Why after his whole organization has turned into a rental car?

"The Anthony Davis story has some developments in him leaving the arena early. And now it appearing as they fired their general manager that their general manager just got fired because he played Anthony Davis. Anthony Davis dot earth last night. Right. And so that's it seems like those two things together because we didn't have any notice the general manager of even though they betrayed Anthony Davis at every turn even though they've been a failure firing him. Now makes it look like you're firing him because anything Davis played yesterday and got hurt in a nationally televised game win. Playing Anthony Davis serves next to nobody right now. Right. It doesn't serve it doesn't serve del. Damn. It doesn't serve the pelicans. It doesn't serve Anthony Davis. And yeah, the appearance when you do it the day after it appears now a lot of people are saying, it's raw roster construction. And he hasn't done a good job of that. And this is a long term thing. But when you do it the night after Anthony Davis. Out of your arena. Mike, what is saying is? Whoa. Just linking up these two things. The fact that Anthony Davis last night got hurt. It's the disaster scenario now, it's not a career ending situation. But it's enough to cost you your job. If you're the general manager of the pelicans, and all other things being will you haven't done a very good job. Right. It's a fireable offense at the end. But when I was telling you before is this is a fascinating collision at the intersection of business interests and sports interest because Anthony Davis was playing last night because it was a nationally televised game. That's the reason he's playing. It's the reason the NBA has been putting pressure on the pelicans to play Anthony Davis at the risk of a fine because they've got television relationship sponsors. They've got a please at all of this is about money. So did did Dale them's just get fired for playing Anthony Davis in a nationally televised game that he was pressured by the. The NBA to play him in tweeted out after he tweeted out the news ownership was livid with an injured Anthony Davis leaving the arena during Thursday night's game. Sources say gale Benson is telling associated she wants an overhaul of the pelicans and search for GM to take command of Davis trade talks, but temps doesn't have control over whether or not Anthony Davis plays Alvin gentry does an.

"Hey, hopefully it blows over by next season. I don't think this is gonna blow over that quickly. It's going to die down a little bit. Nobody's gonna forget about do. Well. Like the Cleveland game O X amount of years ago. I mean, I think that will almost worse than this one. I think the the the next time this really flare up is going to be when the rules committee meets, and I don't know when that is. But whenever that happens that will be a topic of discussion, and when the owners get together, and when the people get together from the rules committee. We'll see what they're what they're thinking. But I mean at this point, it seems like there is merit for for some change. And there can be subtle changes like officials from one area or not assigned to a game that might lead to questions about what's appropriate because of subconscious bias. So there's a lot to consider they'll they'll figure all that out. Gale Benson is one of the owners, and she's one of the ones who is responsible for the fate of Roger Goodell. Roger Goodell has built the NFL up to just incredible status in our society and. In some ways globally, but especially in America. And if the integrity of the game is questioned then that's something that they will have to they'll have to take that into consideration. So let's see so far Roger Goodell has not handled this properly and the NFL has put out a statement a written statement putting a period in a spot to make it seem as if Roger Goodell did not say he had talked to coach Peyton and the team saints players. But in his press conference, he told everybody he talked to coach Peyton and the players. So now, the NFL's backtracking. No, he didn't say that. There was a period here. Well, when you hear it there wasn't a period. That's the subject of scoot report. Which is our daily video on our Facebook page. Wwl radio it's up there right now. And I play the audio from the press conference. And then I've got up on the monitor. I've got the actual printed statement from the NFL word for word, and I show you exactly where they put the period. So you know, you can compare those two things and and decide for yourself, and again that's on our WWL radio Facebook page. So maroon five is playing halftime at the Super Bowl. And they were a lot of maroon five fans and a lot of people in general who asked maroon five to pull out of the Super Bowl because of the way the NFL handled the Colin Kaepernick situation. And maroon five is still going to play the NFL cancelled the traditional press conference with the halftime performer. They cancelled it. But Adam LeVine was talking to the media and had this to say I like to think that people know where I stand as a human being after two decades of doing this. So what I would say is we're going to keep doing what we're doing hopefully without becoming politicians to make people understand. We got you. Okay. So they're going to perform, and it's it's it's, you know, it's pretty obvious. How Adam LeVine feels about? I mean, he's he's the lead me sound a conservative guy. I would think that in in many ways, he probably sympathizes with with Colin Kaepernick and that cost but they're still performing at the Super Bowl. And he said they wanted to be entertainers and politicians, and I know that many of you think that that's the way more celebrities.

"I mean, I'm sure officials look at you know, the spot of a ball it rather? It's a catch and they see five other things that they did wrong on that play. And and they have to just focus on the task at hand. And you know, so I I would say that. And I would say one other thing that I would propose that I talked about a little bit on our podcast last week. Was you know, if you're worried about this, you know, slowing down the game a. I think the NFL had one of his best rating seasons ever. I don't think fans would mind sticking around for an extra four minutes and be if you're really concerned about it. Stick a one minute clock on challenges and make it so okay? If it's not obvious the alle river on within one minute, then it should be overturned. And that way you keep a little bit of that human error aspect of the game. But at the same time utilize the technology. So I think those are some ways that we can kind of compromise and come together, you know, I I think this is a whole different conversation for another day. But I think that the fear of time of game speed of game was largely a byproduct of all the political mess that was going on last year where people were just kind of looking for ways to pick the game apart. I think that the the NFL is sort of beyond that now. Interesting. I do agree. I think that. That I do like the idea that if something is wrong, you should be able to review it. We shouldn't be able to say, well, this is reviewable. That's not reviewable. If it's agreed. Yes, we should be able to look at it. Yeah. No. I think that's that's plenty of simple. You know? And I think that you know, there's certainly going to be an earful from Sean Payton and gale Benson that the owners meetings for this Bill bell checks, always advocated for it. And you know, I'm guessing that I understand a little bit..

Whatever you got. Right. That's what they said. You know, it's it's all a one right now. So you gotta play for this game. You got a favorite when it comes to Saint songs. Get crown to is a chopper style or the traditional when the saints go marching in chopper style. Thank you, Billy. I'm glad you called prediction on a game. Thirty four twenty four. Thank I. Thank you, man. Thank you. Who that is? Right. I hit the wrong button, Keith spirit. New Orleans advocate talked about the origins of the song chopper style said teddy Bridgewater viral lie.

It is an exaggerated. Celebration of the pursuit of sex and the singers ideal partner for such endeavors. It is unabashedly and frankly, sexual as a matter of fact, there's some of that we cannot play on the radio. So if you're gonna use that as a song, maybe gone away to the car on the way to the game to get everybody in a car revved up.

"But I think that there is some weird value as long as teams can protect themselves from is like can be smart and not make bad decisions, which is too much to ask. And that's why the extension rules aren't looser will. It's very interesting that you say that that at least what advantage of this is an inflection point pretty much every article that I've read on this has said, well, if he turns on the supermax going to have to trade him, and I agree though, certainly be what any smart organization would do. In fact, I think if they are gonna make the playoffs this year. Even if they're looking at being the seat or something there should probably try to move them at the trade deadline, and we can talk more about this later. I think that might be part of the reason why this all is getting leaked now the other reason being because James and his team very media savvy. And with a d about to play there for that Friday night game on national TV. This was the perfect time. Time to kick up the engine depends. I think are a weird enough organization that I don't know how they're going to handle this. I mean, they have from the moment. AD got there been about trying to win immediately right now this year, and that's probably why I mean, if you go back to why they're likely to lose AD you can when he does get traded. I'm sure we'll do a postmortem on this. But you can go back to decisions that were made very early in eighties tenure, and as it turns out. I mean, it's not even to say that the pelicans have done some incredibly terrible job around him. I mean, I think just as an organization the injuries not getting up to speed with the medical staff for years, and maybe still not, you know, they haven't done a great job. They've made some good decisions these last couple of years. But I think generally if a player who's like a top five player wants to give himself the best chance to win. He generally is probably gonna leave after seven or eight years because even with that type of player building a real great championship contender is difficult. Right. But. You know, when you get eight years of a chance to do it that probably seems like enough to me, frankly or seven years as we talked about but getting back to the Pels they have fest Diddy, Asli emphasized the year that's in front of them. I think number one given their history given that gale Benson now owns the team given that Mickey Loomis who does not have experienced with these types of trades and players having this type of power in football, which also football is very, and if you look at the saints have been run they've been run the same way right where they've been in capital for a long time. They've always been trying to win that year and deal with drew Brees on your team that makes more sense. But nonetheless gale Benson Mickey Loomis, and then del dumps who's always trying to save his job. I don't think he feels like he's going to do that by making a great AD trade. It wouldn't shock me. I mean, I'm not I still think it's more likely than not that he's not on the team next year. But I'm not treating that. As like an absolute for sure given that they will move him or that they won't have just some completely crazy asking. And then also I think they are very very likely to be looking for a package more like what the Spurs got. That's gonna keep them pseudo competitive, and let them pretended JC see every year instead of just getting future assets. And that to me you unless these Lakers products really take a big step forward that makes it a little difficult to get him traded to the Lakers. If that's what they're looking it could I think that there are a couple of different pieces. The point that you make is is well founded, and that is why I believe that there is basically no reasonable scenario where they trade him this season. Because the pelicans are going to be close enough where we'll Louis click on that point. Do you think that all of this media blitz recently is an effort to try and get him traded this season, you that's what this is?.
