keep it does he let me rock the recipes keeping normal don't go it well struggling on rough so when you call Joe Knitting in Golden State and then you get traded to the wizards or you chose to the payment was forty nine so denver already came in because I used to work out with Kiki Vandeweghe gentleman so he already said fifty how many features like Ellen brain was a free agent I think Karma gators region Lamar offering I think it was like four offers you it was like it was like three or four free agents on your team and then I think the NBA came down and say y'all got assigned by because at that time bounced everyone paying paying nobody was like no you have too many free agents to just say fuck it so you gotta you gotta spend so what ends up happening is they come into play fifty million in everyone's coming and then Brian Russell opt out of his contract his last year are to go to the Lakers so it was like the city so mentally I you know went Austin you start killing in Washington you call you call to like your knees like in a game like us won the top point guards and a lot of the size that these cash shoot right now so you were shooting I shoot from the logo turned around after you shot the ball like they really want seeing that in the league from other players you was doing receive from the highlights like like what did you see what changed in Washington because I know you love and you know you build it over poor with book you build a report where Anton giants what changed in Washington that it was like man I'm getting better and better every year see so when when I came into the League you gotTa Remember Point Guard was still oh point guard and if you score they somehow push you too so you know so Iverson Irish was shooting guard Eric snows point yeah you know so what ends up happening is once I had success at the point guard scoring score mentality and I went to Washington eighty Jordan was more of I had mike baby in sack is Assistant and as Assistant I had Jason Kidd you know they're not high-volume scores like you you know so facilitating so that's that's not my style you know so what ends happening is he's like well this is a two guard front you Larry share everything my first all star players all slower he just he broke his stomach that year so once he broke his thumb I had to take on that scorn in me taking on a scoring push me into the all star but it was Larry who was the all star guard so it was the first one I've been actually Larry and Antoine Yeah so we were sharing points so between the two of us we have forty points between the two of us at Tennessee this year you know and then same with rebound when Larry Left and with the Cleveland we bring in Antonio Daniels who's not score yeah so basically I have discordant position all by myself guard and that's when as well since I'm coming down he'll I'm a two guard with the ball all the time and that's where the confidence comes because no one was coming at me back then it was like Okay Mulberry varies at Eighteen nineteen twenty you know Eric you know any average and nine assists defer to another guard you know St Francis yeah which was the the Mayor Stud but he's only averaging sixteen he wasn't like his highlight reel was what made them great it wasn't a point he was throwing up but he had to defer to cat cat is twenty he's sixteen so you know I get the leisurely even though this was trying to embarrass me sixteen points he's GonNa try to off the heat to between your legs you know you know I don't have to worry about getting put forty on you know then you got twenty Parker who was still Jason Kidd didn't really try to score Steve Nash when he was in Dallas wasn't you know so I didn't really have to I didn't really have to go against anybody who's GonNa try to take my confidence away from me so basically just me just me just coming just coming out everybody so by the time I made my first all star that confidence was just building and then it was like well I'm just the assassin for that point position had to play against Albertson Ages Zero Watchi- airshows guard yeah so I'm just freelance on just sit back on defense guard Iverson do for those who don't know 'cause you know I'll privilege to the store you give me your story first hand and when you lose in Orlando for those who don't know can you talk to them about the the Amex the American Express card the party that happened that went on in DC the Agana from from Miami to La to DC to okay so at this point what I made a two-time all-star right so I'm a two time all star and I'm trying to negotiate a deal with Adidas so you know I'm on I'm still on my you know I deal with them you know five hundred thousand so I'm like you know I wanna be bumped up at least two meal by two

immediate Sasha Jones like she runs the media for Washington and I was like I need to do something to just live in my name outside of DC like I need the world to know she was like so we're just going

he's like a charge two hundred thousand okay what else divinities Debbie private so you don't make any so no one makes money mean private like just invite only yeah oh that's perfect because I want to invite people with the black car so I said what I wanNA create black cards like the real black car as the invitation and we send it out to the people it has their name on and everything that's that's

kicking in so now at the party before the party may we don't feel like these also ballots all star balanced all-star balanced and then what ends up happening is after the party my name so big for torness strapping apart because I've rented out runs four seasons all rooms at the poor season do you hear this both the football forcing all every room so basically you have to do nothing all you had you already had a free everyone came and then jet blues so hooked up with Jet Blue and there were times from Los Angeles where you can pick that flat it was free coming through so basically everybody from Los Angeles they got a one or two jet one or two three jetblue and came and then you had a fever so every day was and then the the the the four seasons and had my name on their pillow so I spent about two mil on this whole event the idea was to get so big for all of a sudden I can get that two million back for the contract and what ended up happening is right before it was like three days before they cut off the all star DC made another push I was down two hundred thousand I beat Vince Carter by two hundred also because the because the name was ringing so much everybody's like get them get them get them and then that became a starter going into vegas crazy because of the million dollars in part because the most most of the money was basically buying out every room L. flight so I

told my dad and the staff I was like listen whatever number they come out with birth I'm going to be mad I'm going to be mad edible walkout y'all the walkout leave so I was thinking like maybe they're going to start off at a million so I mean it would be real right so ends up happening is it was like yeah you know you did it your name is hot you are legit superstar name so you know we're going to reward you with what you wanted to two million dollar deal for eight years because I was asking for too it was like two for five two million dollars and we're going to give you three more years excited because they gave me three Bo years or the dollar they gave me three so you see this what I'm talking about they bullshitting I'm out walked out the heart is after I open the door so I just bounce out just hours and then just walked in my room and I was like please please just call he just called is we just call so what happened is my rep Zet called and said Ardita said sorry what number

I would love going into that sitting. Onto. Outside a lot. Groom. There's run wise to like you just become friends with people on the defense become friends with people you hang out with probably in your position group than most. But outside luck.

Where people go out, you don't really see people help much dice games. Bring people together. Didn't they banned him they banned? Yeah. They banned them in all the NFL after what's his face from basketball showed up with two. Was gonna say deal. It was a gambling one hundred thousand showed up with two guns in the locker room. So then every everybody panicked, and they were like, hey, no more gambling in the locker of. Did you see what happened Gilbert arenas? And I was like, yeah. But that's really the only time you get. Hey, I understand what you're saying. And I don't want that either. But it's the only time the whole team is really together interpreting, it's pretty cool.

NBA: What will fix the Wizards?
"Let's talk about the wizards. The wizards are two eight. This is what we insiders who really know and work in the NBA like to call not good. Although as someone who grew up in the Washington area, I can assure you it is not in fact rock bottom the wizards seasons. They only won nineteen games. Total. In fact, that is happened twice and not even that long ago. The most recent was two eight two thousand nine and yes that is when Gilbert arenas was on the team. But no that's not even the season where here nearly got into. Those of you who are looking at this team right now and thinking mine, Lord how much worse could this possibly get? Well, my answer to you is how much time do you have still? There is no doubt that what is happening in Washington right now is absolutely a mess so much. So that I believe there's a whole TV show about it. The National Basketball, so slush. The people washed in a represented by two separate yet. Equally important groups the guys were finger-pointing inside the locker room and the guys were playing for the next contract. These are their stories. Was grizzly enough. It should have probably come with one of those mature audiences. Born things starting with white Howard attempting this shot in the first quarter. Yes. To actually go onto grab eleven rebounds. But as a whole on the board a wizard or just a horror show this season their only grabbing forty four percent of available rebounds ranked last in the NBA good margin mind, you they also ranked third worst in the league defensively, which was also on full display last night. They fell behind by as many as twenty in the second quarter by allowing baskets this nice. Or like this. Oh, I mean as that defenses. We'll go on to hang seventy on Washington in these first. The wizards did make a brief rally in third quarter. They promptly fell right back apart to lose the game by nineteen at least afterward. No one on the team directly called anyone out. Which is I guess step in the right direction considering that's already happened multiple times just last month. Dwight Howard told the media, quote, we are gonna get better. Once we hit our stride. I think people will forget about what happened at the beginning of this season.

You're going to have my hundred grand. If that's the case, one of the more difficult things I think you can do great parlor trick though for later on in life. But Gallagher, he is reminded me of my own prowess in this area because Gallagher now getting a lot of those old older school games are ones where there's a. Feeling, I think on how skillful you can actually be. But with Gallagher, I feel like this in that war of attrition, I'm one that can outlast. I truly feel good in that area when we went down to Dallas for the draft. One of the greatest things that I've ever seen we went to, we went and did radio shot at a bowling alley around there in the arcade. They had Gallagher that was up to the ceiling. It was giant Gallagher, and I truly felt alive and ways I hadn't in a while. Now this morning is not been without controversy in this area because we've asked people to put money on the table for something they're confident, and you really have to think about it because you're asked to make a lot of statements in life.

And then said, quote, players who had been casually, arriving laughing and joking with each other, came to a sudden halt to their eyes bugging out. They all look at each other, and then they ran and sent teammate scrambling out of the locker room. They were both suspended for the rest of the season. Arenas was out of the league two years later. Crittenden never played another minute in the NBA in his currently serving time for a drive by shooting. So the only reasonable thing to do. Turn this over first of all to you. Jalen his as one in locker rooms. We all knew some of what happened here somehow hearing it and this level of detail. I can't read your face here. I found it stunning. No. I mean, we've known about this wizards team had a run of some dudes for a while, but like everybody, you know, everybody wants to be the tough guy and then grins shows up with the gut. Can you imagine being the coach, hey, you guys lost Avidan box out. Miss him open. Looks Crittenden showed up a lot of gun pointed. I mean to me, it felt I get it again. We sort of knew the details but hearing it like that. I was thinking, I can't even imagine the circumstance. What do you think these dark days in and barest me for the NBA and as you mentioned, both of those guys were surely out of the league and it's not new for teammates to gamble, and I'm pretty sure mean and Ryan could allude to this plan craft land blackjack playing poker playing, boo rate a game. They were playing, but what ends up happening is you said it. You have somebody use unusual cats on roster, a couple of those guys, Nick young Jovana McGee who went on to reinvent themselves and win a championship to show you how far they've come. But you have to have veterans. You have to have coaches, policing the games a, here's what I mean. You can have a guy make fifteen million dollars in a rookie does make an million dollars. All bet. And for the same money like you have to have certain limits. Question parameters because ultimately. While we're all millionaires and we want to win the money. We're here because we're teammates Dale and some of the biggest gamblers or the guys on nonguarantee minimum. It's funny that on the planes, the different characters that come in play here are Larry's. But to me, this was all about Gilbert arenas. He was the original social media athlete, right? What he did to Crittenden. He trolled him. He told them hard. And then at a time where someone would say, oh, this is getting serious. He doubled down on the troll and gave the guns. I don't know it's in the actual story, but allegedly when couldn't pull out the gun and aimed at Gilbert, you know, did he laughs? Because that's Gilbert arenas. He pushes the lillies to to the end of it too. Literally to the debt, he's going to be told and pushing and pushing. But. You're talking about, do we had hand limits? You couldn't bet more than a certain hand. If you're gonna play on the point because and if you had a bet debt to settle, you had to sum up by the time the flight landed. There's none of this. I get it tomorrow because of instance like that. People get upset about that. I mean, to this extent, obviously not. But did you ever have an incident in your career where players got next level upset over gambling stuff? No, because you got to have people police in this. Is that the y'all about to be fighting? We thirty five thousand feet air. We're not having that. Y'all ain't to be. Now you hear story night, Jerry Stackhouse the Christian lane. You hear stories of that taking place. But again, Tony Allen, no question.

It's I want to instigate it Gilbert arenas. A genius Gill is an absolute genius. If you've ever talked with him, he's really into gaming. He's made a lot money outs money outside of basketball. He's a big nerd, like straight up. He's gene straight up and the one thing about the NBA at that time when a great guy, I love guilty death. One thing about that NBA at the time when I first came into league versus the in, there are a lot of things that had to clean up one. We were added in with the dress code. Two guys were, how would I let me let me phrase right strapped. Strapped? Yeah, we got away with a lot of things that normal people wouldn't get away with him because we were in VA players in with in terms of guns strapped. I don't even know if I can say. Is there anything safe to say you can say strap, okay, strapped. So guys had a legal objects, you know? And they were quite done. You can say it kinda, no, but I'm saying, even beyond that, you get away with that and play NBA basketball. You could be a straight up gangster and play basketball real certified gangster criminal by gates with one of the craziest, things that came out of where Jaguars Crittenden's life ultimately went, and you know, he's now in prison. It's it's crazy. I mean, it's tragic. He was part of a shooting in in retribution over a robbery, and he ended up hitting a woman. She's a mother of four minutes and absolute senseless tragedy. And you know, it's it's awful to see what became of his life. Awful. The see how. Her life ended, but one of the craziest things that came out of the reporting and you know, learning more about Crittenden's life after basketball, how to spiraled? Yeah. This awful place is he had developed gang ties in LA as a member of the Lakers. Yeah, the crazy part which Avars is that? I mean, he was such a good kid. He would come to the gym workout with us all the time, humble down to earth. But he, I mean, I guess I sit in this message man because this is just beyond Vars. He had a little bit too much. Just keep it real in his system. And I know we all hit those moments where we feel like we need to keep it real saying I'm about that life. Well, when you have a future at hand, you can't keep it real. You can't be about that life and not that you can't be honest. But if somebody says the wrong thing to you, you can't pull out your gun at point at them. You got a million dollars on the line, right? You can't walk up and slap somebody you'll have a future. And while it may have been cute for some guys that gang bang. That time you're really gang banging dog and you not from here well, and also to you're doing it when you have actual stakes in your life, like and in Gilbert, Gerard Crittenden's case with with the picked one and pulling out the gun that ended his NBA Karai. He didn't play after. They never played in the NBA again because he was an impending free agent. He got suspended like yogurt arenas for the rest of that season, but Gilbert was still under contract know, ended up getting moved and all that, but Gilbert already had made money and still had guaranteed money coming to him jars..

You mentioned have to play the wool year, not have your contracts anymore that actually went down. I see why fights who after that? Yeah, Gilbert actually had a really strong quote in the piece.

Meyer, Finebaum and Gilbert Arenas discussed on Waddle & Silvy
"College football or one. Of the college football fans are. Getting mad at him I think he said today, that he thinks that I didn't Emma getting this wrong urban Meyer will in fact probably. Keep, his. Job Did I. Hear that right of dollar that, the finebaum basically said he thinks at, this point at this point at this point in the investigation if. What everybody urban Meyer says is, true is, that? He ran it up, the fight and, went to the athletic director and he says yes he may get suspended. For lying to the media or not, firing him right away or whatever it is but ultimately he will. Keep his, job there was a guest today. In the eight, o'clock hour of Golic and, wingo? I forget what his name, was someone who's covering this who said if you, asked him at the time the news broke the chances at urban. Meyer would keep his job it would be like at point one percent right and then he, said as. Of today he believes it's at about twenty five percent that he keeps his job so not quite what finebaum is saying but he's he's philosophy was based on who's. In on this committee you know there are people inside Ohio State in this quote. Independent committee is Greg McElroy right quarterback former quarterback From alabama But there are there are state people in this committee It's supposed to be. Independent I think pretty much everyone I think Reese, Davis I think finebaum I think all. Of the the the very, trustworthy voices surrounding college football most of them all said they thought it was highly unlikely. That he would retain his job when it first broke so this is obviously a a change in sentiment. With regard to Herman Myers potential status at Ohio State speaking of a former Buckeye, chargers defensive enjoy both has injured his foot in practice suffered a left foot injury during the eleven on eleven, team drills today hobbled off the field on his own, spent the rest of practice getting treatment for. The. Injury no word on how severe the, injury is interesting we have a conversation later as well About whether or not Khalil Mack should be on the bears. Radar he is with the answer to that. Is for sure yes. You would think the realistic chances of trading for him is different. But he should be on. The bears radar yes I. Would think I would. I would hope the bears would make a concerted, effort to acquire him if the raiders. Are in fact willing to trade him because they're in an impasse with the contract the bears have one of the. Highest amounts of money available cap room and they have a good situation because they're starting quarterback is still. Under their control for three more years after this year yes at a low price, it's similar to what the Seahawks where the beneficiary of with Russell Wilson and other teams who had had good, young quarterbacks let's hope he turns into a Russell Wilson, that would be nice Gilbert arenas has delivered. Details. On the two thousand nine gun incident Arena says that trash talking during a card game pop the around the NBA and not the. Money lead to a gun showdown with teammate Joe Veras Crittenden remember that, story the whole gun things on a plane and then ironically they were in the Washington Bullets yeah now the gun made. Of. Golden right I don't. Know if it was made of gold but that was the to me that was one of the most parts of the. Stories that give it a read is not. Only is carrying a. Gun but it's it's golden gun yeah well he was agent zero Man, with golden gun remember there is like. Five year period, where Gilbert arenas was a great. Basketball. Player Wayne then he got the, contract. With Washington wasn't one of the first one hundred, million dollar contracts given out free agency he went down quickly he did I Yankees outfielder Jacoby ellsbury has season ending hip surgery so he's out Jarvis Landry, says he lobbied the Browns. To. Trade, for Odell Beckham junior But they haven't what do you mean like he's he he's currently lobbying for that I. Don't think that the giants aren't going?

"Closest comparison that we can come up with potentially Charles Barkley which is going along way back Charles was listed at six foot six, two hundred eighty two pounds when he was drafted. And so you know, we really haven't seen a guy like Dianne Williamson. The one concern that we have I would say is that you know. Two years ago according to our measurement database, he weighs two hundred thirty pounds a year ago, two hundred seventy two now to eighty five. He's going in the wrong direction and so we'll have to see during the season. How much of that is strength? How high change I know unfortunate nuts. He actually dropped an inch is rob. Women, I didn't know. So we were just looking at young Charles Barkley. I've never seen Charles look. That's felt wow, but like he was way more skilled as I Williamson was when he was at size. I think they Johnson in some ways just from a physical component, like he's more like the calm in terms of game. Larry was just physical specimen, but I the thing was I is like, he's that big. The other guy would put in this category would be like LeBron James, but the Brown was the number one prospect in all of basketball. And even though he was a man child, they had a lot more skill than words I is right now also, can you, can you say that the weight gain has been a detriment? So this last couple of years. He may dishing didn't look the way we people were hoping in the spring. We saw him in the McDonald's American game at the Jordan brand classic. I'm just in practices and and so that's of, you know, the defenses. That's the part that NBA team to really gonna wanna see more because you know, who do you guard when you're six? Six, not like he's long, the six, ten wingspan. So he really is more of a small forward height wise. But in terms of his game, he's more of a center. So I think that's going to actually knew exactly it. He's visionless MBA I hear the Duke is going to play a lot at center actually. So that's going to be interesting to see how that materializes. You know how shooting stroke improves the very good passer. I think that's the part of the people don't realize about him. So he actually has a great basketball q., and I think that he, he's, he's a lot more than a highlight reel, and it's going to be really fun to watch them play for. Specifically, we talked about, you know how his form is. How figure is within a program like trailer to rest.

"The WB playoff push continues Sunday. We'll have a big one between these sparks and mercury at seven eastern on ESPN two and the ESPN app. We were just saying conversation there. Sorry for the little delay. Welcome into the jump on our ESPN draft expert. Jonathan Devonian is here in studio. And you actually have an article on ESPN dot com right now about Brian Bowen was a five star recruit an NBA draft prospect out of high school that couldn't play at Louisville last year due to the FBI college basketball investigation and removed his name from the drops by being ruled in eligible for the upcoming season. So looking you tell us is the next move Abon. So he just signed his contract to play for the Sydney kings. He'll be joining Andrew bogut out there. The NBA how they started a new initiative called that the next stars program and they're hoping to lower guys like parents Ferguson, who they had two years ago was the first round draft pick and Brian Bowen is the next one in in that line. And they're really making an aggressive play here at at elite high school players. Their CEO was out here this summer about it, both at the Las Vegas summer league and at the Nike hoop summit really going hard after players agents coaches, and really trying to make this a pathway that they can take advantage of because a lot of people are fed up right now with college basketball, they're, you know, they're not changing the rules here. They're not have agents into profit off their marketability, and so there there's really, you know an avenue here that that the n. b. o. can exploit and they're, they're looking to take full advantage of it. This meaning we moving more and more towards the one in done roles, bowling gonna mean example of this? I think so, yeah, I think this is going to benefit him. You know, he didn't have a chance to play at all last year at Louisville, transferred midseason, South Carolina tried to get eligible, but the inevitably ruled them and for a full year. And so he really had his hands tied. He had to go do something. So his options were either go playing the g. league or find the place internatio where he can play in the Sydney kings that you know, they raise their hand up and they wanted the velvet and they wanna give him in junior Bolers association. That was the second option I heard. But what about, you know, Ferguson obviously went this? How was the development over there? How does that translate for them? You know, develop their skills, it'd be ready for this level. I think it's good. It's it's it's the right level. It's not the strongest league. It's not the euro league and it's not the, and so he's going to be able to ease himself in there and get some minutes which he needs after missing all last season there. There's a very good strength program in place. I've been told they're going to be working every day. The coaching staff is behind it, which is really a big key. When you're bringing in nineteen year old kids, are they willing to to to be patient with him and and kind of let him work through some mistakes early on because he's going to be rusty inevitably after a full year off of not playing basketball anywhere. I think they got about one or two years to be the destination before the NBA just changes its rule anyway. Right? Twenty twenty two is what we're hearing about the the, the age limit being eliminated. So they like you're saying that it's a short window that they take advantage of it, and you know what was what happens with. He's going to be certainly be an interesting prospect of follow the next year. But one of the most fascinating prospects eligible for the twenty nineteen draft is of course you've heard this name sign Williamson who's developed a viral bombing with his impressive athleticism to say the least however has physical Bill is rare for an eighteen year old prospect. He's listed at six foot seven and two hundred eighty five pounds on their website. So Jonathan, have you ever seen actually a prospect. Not in time for fifteen years, and I've never seen a player like Zion, whim Winston was so strong and athletic and he is, but but also under size and not particularly skilled in terms of facing the basket, being able to shoot three pointers, the.

"He's really bona five all star candidate, but they went on that run. Teams go on like real long runs. You wonder if that's the thing if that's real zip. So that'd be interesting to see the reason because that ROY. Coincided with the return of vertigo bear. So you know, it's Rudy, Gobert Donovan Mitchell team. So those those two pillars continue to go. But you're right. It's still the west and they're not surprising anyone this year and they'll Donovan has to come with more in his back because people seeing Ben Simmons. You got to take that next step. So he's he's going to be key in their electric personality. So you know, so people notice and and like this, all needs that great. All wanna know is how many people in Salt Lake are gonna come with us by demand suit that he wanted the. Anywhere Miami, they'd all be wearing your. That's one about late. Lastly, my hometown Chicago Bulls, they're over unders Lissette twenty seven and a half. Look, they added divide Parker harder, junior looking nice. So I'm gonna take this one not to sound like a Homer, but this is an easy over last year. Clearly a rebuilding year. I mean, they won twenty seven games last year and they were taking. So Chris done, he missed thirty games, Zach, LeVine, miss almost sixty games even Laurie marketed miss fourteen game. So from those two rookies in Wendell and Chandler Hutchison, they'll see some time Jabari Parker massive chip on his shoulder. There's a lot of guys with so much to prove netting. They're going to play every single game hard. So when teams come in Chicago rest there, guys that have been sold sold. Okay. So I know what you're like. Lauri Markkanen did not get nearly enough credit for how good of a rookie season he had. I got to see him live. I got to meet him and that guy is going to be a really good player in this league for a long time to come. And I like the young players like adding Julia Parker. That's a very good addition in terms of like high, low risk, high reward. If he cans out, I really liked the team. I really like what the bulls done and let me do my monologue. Did show. I was playing congas finest right there, but like I've. So I think that's pretty low for the bulls and plus they don't really have as much incentive to tank again this year. So you know, I'll just have one note about the bulls and they're tanking and how they got there at least honest tankers, right? They call the league and acknowledged that this is what was happening and the league was like, you're not supposed to talk about it, right, right. Most people just like lie and say that we won't. Permission. Good. They're honest hankers Sukagaw bulls can be the next coming. The Boston Celtics. I like I, like I like their youth versatile from every position I'm I'm heavily. So on boy park the if he can stay healthy. Sabari has warned quickest ups in the NBA for his size. And I think that's gonna benefit him when you have a lot of other athletic dies, who can play make and get easy because I agree with you on Martin if it wasn't for Jason Tatum is Mitchell. He will be he will get more pub-, but that's often top to bottom. You know what? Stacey, king Saracho take all. The whole replace the viewer. Oh, okay. Okay.

"Hi, I'm going to go with the under slightly in this scenario. Like you said they lost mostly all the shooter's been Simmons is going to have to take his next level offically particularly with outside of shooting, shooting touch in order for it's a match. She has to shoot more than one not just shoot more than what you got to make a couple. You You know, know. you hit on us and that's worth going. That's where we're going to see if this team is really legit. We'll take them beat this Martin. Of course, the question marks round Marquel Foltz. We also want to talk about. I'm saying, we have no idea what type of players rather than we know that. He is expected to be out there. So yeah, there are a lot a lot of questions around the Sixers. But again, they're in the east San's LeBron now let's move over to the west into the thunder over under as listed at fifty and a half wins this season. Chris PG St. and Westbrook's average triple double consecutive seasons. So are you going over under? Okay, see us about right. I will. I will, but I will go. I'll go to hold for slightly look. I, I think obviously bringing back Paul Georgia's big nobody a year ago really gave much of a chance for him to resign, but I'm still not sold on the pieces there. You know, you got the same pieces minus Carmelo. I'm still not sure they rank mood talking about Suprema in the Western Conference that's still Houston and Golden State. Look, I wouldn't be surprised to see what the Lakers can do with abroad to I. I know we don't expect much, but that's a bad boy. But no, I think that's about right. Okay. See, like Roberson is back and we see video him getting hurt there. That was a big loss for them, and then Dennis shooters added to the teams. And now you have a better more potent second unit. I was like the last person on the funder bus last year. I just kept thinking team would be better than it was, and maybe they will be minus Carmelo, Anthony and also with another year to play together. They have too much talent at the top Ray. If you talk about top talent wins, they should have been better than they were last year. The fact that they. The only one one more game than they did the year before when didn't have PG and Carmelo's unbelievable to me. But I feel like that's probably the right the right number to put them because they underachieve talk about, you know, oversell under deliver. They should just be better than they were last year and hopefully they will underestimate the value of Stephen Adams and what that trio is going to be as they develop now with mellow gone as well team that beat the funder, the Utah Jazz. They have an over under forty eight and a half. Remember they went twenty nine and six to end last season. So remote, are you going over under. I go under with this one not because I don't believe in the jazz, but because they finished on such an incredible role last year and just from a talent perspective, like they probably they over perform where they were from a talent perspective. Right. So then you have to be able to recreate what you did with basically the same cast of characters. I do think some of their stars are gonna get better, like Donovan, Mitchell is gonna get better so that that increases how much talent you have. But this is the year where we find out if the jazz the new Spurs because they have that kind of system and how those kind of players, especially code. I Quin Snyder, they could be the new Spurs where they're just gonna win. Fifty games every year will go under slightly under, but I do still pick their playoff team and I'm interested to see if Donald take his game to the next level to world..
Dwight Howard once again looking for his place in the NBA
"Little, bit too funny and not? Focusing on his career but what are your thoughts Yeah all right Well I guess we already got your like super anti comments of right out of the gate about what I think. Of Dwight Howard this is the one thing I think of the twenty sixteen incarnation of the Houston Rockets when the Golden State Warriors were up in that series in the pockets actually pulled out in four and the rockets players when harden hit, that game winner that didn't even cheer because, they, were, like Aw man we gotta come back for another. Fricking game jam I. Ate these dudes Dwight Howard was a huge, part. Of that man nobody wanted to be. Dwight Howard steamy it's time in a. you should've just stayed in Orlando at least areas beloved in his career actually had some merit ever since then he's just been a guy that will get you. Some empty, statistics you know we're happy that you can still go out and get twenty and fifteen because you're built like a, fricken a house, but bad teammate not. A complete player can't shoot. A free, throw I mean there's just a lot not to admire about the White. House. Or negatives I've never been a, huge and you know. What I'm one, of those, guys. Like get it you hit the genetic lottery you know in the NBA guy like shack. He's, huge but I like skill guys I like I'm much more admire what a guy like Steph Curry's been able to accomplish versus. Shaquille O'Neal just because you were born with a caboose for an ass you know in in your just ridiculously large yeah okay you're stoked and you can play basketball but where's the athlete prowess man what what have you overcome you know show, me something show me something unique and that's, not, unique, to Dwight Howard it's not unique to me just.
