"Right. Before the franchise traded monte back in the early doesn't tens said there's no way wherever trading manteo us like two months later he was off the roster right so if things look good through the first two months and they make a couple of just doesn't have to be some superstar trade. I don't think. I don't think they have to trade a star player player. It's like you know. Can you get like malcolm brogden level back. Not malcolm obviously because he can't get traded this year extension but just somebody around that level like is there a pathway to getting one of those guys around the trade using wiggins to go get somebody like that um and you know picks or whatever but if the roster says somewhat the same I would expect them to get out of the first round and honestly a huge success to me is okay as men taking meaningful leaps. Is he actually if he can be playable for fifteen to twenty minutes a night like truly playable on both ends be enough of a deterrent. Deterrent at the rim. He's not gonna be immediately at a great rim-protector a deterrent Does he is he chatterly in the right areas is he playable. Offensively can just be a good role man and actually catch passes and make an occasional short roll. Read it and then obviously the big one is quite what is quite because i think that's what determines a lot of things that determines honestly what this summer that's gonna look like If if clay is any Facsimile of what he used to be you know if he's eighty percent of the guy who used to be. I think that changes the entire conversation Then i think they will get aggressive And that's getting out of a first round getting to a second round and maybe this eating shakes outright. You somehow reach a conference finals because You know at the end of the day if steph andrey all healthy they are a very tough out in the playoffs no matter who else is on the roster. It really doesn't matter they'd be i mean they when they beat. The detroit was in the western conference finals a couple of years ago. You look at the risks that roster. It's disgusting. I mean it's like six or seven guys playing rotation minutes who aren't in the nba anymore. It's a really really bad rosser so of those. Can you like the sixth man on the team. Practically he's here. Twenty minutes and nine during bell's playing a lot of minutes when coke was playing a lot of minutes. Andrew bogut was playing a lot of minutes. And that's the washers andrew. Okay that's not two thousand fifteen hundred But i wasn't even held the it was just a really bad roster But if those three are healthy you really can't put a limb what they can do to. Because of the the level chemistry they add at.

"He didn't even summer league this summer. He really isn't available to go full speed and jump yet a lot of this stuff that they've been working with them on is just If you're watching some of the cuts that are coming out of their practices just individuals stuff. You can't even go full-contact yet. So they're not expecting him to be back until november at the earliest and he's going to be playing catch up once again so i i just don't think it is fair for the franchise to put what they're putting on him at this point especially because they're not really grabbing anymore pigment. That's they added pneumonia. Be a this summer. I think is a nice fine especially on that contract. He's going to help them in some meaningful ways but they don't really have another big athletic center. It's wiseman comes back. And i don't know if you can feel that on a night tonight. Basis against the level of competition. They're expecting to plates. Yeah it's always interesting. I feel very similar to how you do i think. Especially the way that the franchise kind of through one of the bus last year like that was disappointed. Me because like you mentioned like you go back and you watch. He was like yeah dude. This shouldn't be surprising that he came in and believe it or not. He can't move side and you. You can't really expect them to make decisions on the short roll because he's never had to do that before he just doesn't really have that. That court vision awareness right now. I think i would at last year. Lot as Even though it wasn't like the worst year ever obviously here before i worked at largely as an organizational failure. In kind of an indictment of steve kerr not in a. I guess it goes a little bit more. Bob myers coat end in the front office because they should have known. This is how things will play out if we bring these guys on. But i felt very similarly kelly. You ray in some ways like it's difficult sidebar. Collier rid because i think a lot of times people are like all the highlight dunks. You know like what will like casual twitter can kind of blow up with that. But then i also think that some more Analytically driven people can be a little bit harsher towards kelly. he has utility. he's a capable wing player. Who can do things defensively. Even it's not perfect like he's a man he's a four man offensively just. The warriors tried to make him a to last. That was just never going to work. He needs to would actually fit better in some ways on this current roster 'cause they could just use him as a point of attack defender and then they could use him as a small ball. Foreign liners were basically. You're rim runner for all intents and purposes you plan as a four next to tin ammonia leads a five that actually kind of works offensively..

Ben Simmons is not expressed that he desires that we know of yet. He desires to go to one California professional basketball team over another. I think we can all assume, however, that if he were traded to the Sacramento Kings, he would be as happy if he were treated to The Golden State Warriors. Just guess. I'm guessing you're a Thank you. I think you're right. Well, look, I think

And to future first round picks. So four first round picks. Wiggins and Wiseman. Basically That's six first round picks if you think about it. 7 14 to future. Wiggins was an early first round pick, and James Wiseman was just the second pick in the draft. So if you want to say, because Wiggins played in the league for a little bit hit, and he's kind of been underwhelming. Wise, but at least they're still has that potential. Even after his first season, it's basically Wiggins And five first round picks for Ben Simmons. If I'm the Golden State warriors. I'm glad they said no.

Played with michael jordan won two titles with mj with the bulls so his perspective on this obviously is something that is interesting because he played with jordan but coach durant and listen to what he said nbc bay area about kevin durant and his comparison to jordan is the most talented basketball player on earth If not of all time. Honestly he's just so gifted played with michael jordan. And and and i know i think he's more gifted i really do. I mean it saying something but kevin is a different entirely different breed.

It felt good just to sit and watch the Lakers play and dominate I enjoyed this one thoroughly Matt. How are you doing today? Are you in as good of a mood as I am right now dead? Any time the Lakers get away and I'm in a great mood, especially when it's a blot when like this we've seen some sluggish Stars they had another one tonight, but they picked it up real quick right after so I'm happy that they got away, especially on the first end of a back-to-back.

2021 Lottery NBA Mock Draft
"Tony. And i are going to do our first lottery. Mock draft of the year today. We're going to go back and forth. Selecting picks to put a draft order together. Midseason is really difficult. Especially if you've looked at the standings anytime lately and seen how bunch together so many of these teams are so i went to espn's basketball power index That list teams projected records to the season through a number of statistical factors. I think it's it's probably a better look. At where teams are going to be at the end of the season then necessarily their records right now and then based off of that we put together a draft order that obviously is going to change and obviously will be affected by the nba draft lottery where the top top three teams each have a fourteen percent chance of getting the top pick and so on as you know how the draft lottery works and so doing a mock draft. This time of season tough until really until the draft lotteries over. We don't really know the order but but we have some guesses now based off of where teams what teams have played. And what's going on right now and we're going to do our best to give you a are mock draft For the twenty twenty one season. First one we're just gonna cover the lottery and we're going to let tony how the first pick in the draft and based off of that. Espn bpi has the minnesota timberwolves projected to have the worst record in the league. Which is actually pretty good news for minnesota timberwolves fans because the timber wolves have to trade pick to the golden state warriors if this is pick four thirty and so the only way minnesota keeps this pick is if they fall into top three right now. If the season were tomorrow they'd have about a forty point. Seven percent chance of keeping this year's draft pick a falling the top three in the draft. So this is no guarantee from minnesota that they'll have the number one pick they all said the number one pick last year. Tony you're on the board. Who do you select if you're the timber. Wolves with the number one. Pick in the twenty twenty one nba draft. I select the I will not need three minutes to make the selection I'm selecting k. Cunningham six hundred seventy one hundred twenty point guard out of oklahoma state and so when you When you make your draft selections you do to you draft for two things you draft For value and you draft for need and this is both in pick antibi- you pick for for for the minnesota timberwolves number one. K cunningham is the best player draft You know. I think the gap is actually close Because you know. I think jonathan coachman gain in jalen green. You know both of those guys you look at them and they have some real special tools But that being said you know k. Cunningham is is still am. I is the most shore Most short superstar player in his draft. In and i think that's a compliment to how good distract is going to be especially in the top five But you know cunningham can score at all three levels. No he's sick. He's all seven all twenty. He's he's a natural point guard You know if you're minnesota you're trying to trace the ngelo russell Like as soon as possible In you know you put k. cunningham in the backcourt with anthony edwards who i think both of us can safely say it's better than we thought he would And i think that. That's obviously a backward for the future for the minnesota timberwolves in a really nice triumvirate with karl anthony towns so Definitely you know we all rights won't always talk about. We need some some of these number. One picks the go out east but you get the number one pick in another kind of generational prospect that comes to the western conference. I'm totaling till the agreement with you. Tony i think look. I don't think. I think there's five guys that can make a claim to the number one pick in this draft and so it's not like cunningham is a lock here but because of that i would put all of these players in the same tier and then when you look at what minnesota actually needs on their basketball team. Right now i think cunningham is just the right fit for this team as well and i i see him as a really nice compliment to karl anthony towns and to ant man right now and i think that this is this will be a huge boon for minnesota. If they get this pick and you know look everybody in minnesota has got gotta be crossing their fingers at this point Like you said if they fall out of the top three golden state gets this pick. And i think golden state already one that andrew wiggins dangelo russell trade as it is but if they end up getting you know the fourth or fifth pick in the draft does as as well. It's going to be an absolute massacre on that trade.
Brooklyn Nets Closing in on Los Angeles Lakers in Updated 2021 NBA Championship Odds
"So let's get started says we're at all star weekend in the nba Not that anybody gives a crap when it comes to the all star weekend but it is a time to go ahead and look back at what we've seen so far in the nba. And how the title odds may have shifted because fez all of a sudden. We've got a brand new co-favourite expected or at least projected to win the nba championship yet. Brooklyn nets plus two eighty the same odds now as the lakers. The nets just about a week ago where four to one. Rj bell recommended a bet on the nets. At that time. I got to give credit. Heck i gotta give her own. Mackenzie rivers credit. He bet the nets at two to one to win the east. And i think i was buying the narrative of oh kyrie irving harden these guys. I just don't trust these guys to integrate to play well together and really the opposite has been true. The nets despite bring harden in missing lots of games. Obviously when he wasn't on the team and having durant missing so many games they're right there with the best record in the east. And i think they only get better and if i make one bet and the futures market i would bet the nets right now. Plus the two eighty jonas. You said you like the nets into win the east even more at plus twenty five right. That's that's the one that that. I would look at because when you get to the nba finals. I mean you know this. I mean i it just depends the matchups. We've seen a couple of weird situations happen in the nba finals. The past couple of years. You saw a bunch of injuries early on for the heat last year in the finals you saw the golden state warriors the year before that with the toronto raptors injuries took place in those final. So we've seen this happen before where it's such a long race when you get to the finish line. It's all about a war of attrition. who's going to be the healthiest when you get to that point. But as far as coming out of the eastern conference. I know that the philadelphia seventy sixers are a great story. But i'm with you fez. These brooklyn nets have played and exceeded expectations thus far just based on personalities. Now they do have kyrie irving. That's the problem because kyrie irving is like the guy who decides to read a book in the middle of party like people are doing cake stands and they're having a good time. There's a bathtub filled with booze. You've got stripper poles. You've got everything. And he decides. That's the time he's going to break out. Warren peace and sit in the middle of the party because he just wants the attention and wants to show that he's different and he's i mean if the earth is not flat then we shouldn't go to the bubble then they should change the nba logo. That's the only reservation. I have about the brooklyn nets. i'm not worried about james harden at all james harden shown he's willing to sacrifice and do something different and decrease his workload from an offense standpoint in order to try and make the team better. I'm not worried about kevin durant. He's already been paired up with stars before it had a couple of stars at he's played with kyri to me is the one piece of that that i would. I would be a little bit concerned with. And but here's the other part of the nets. And why. I like this and especially like to win the eastern conference. What's the one knock on james harden throughout the course of his career. Great regular season runs out of gas in the postseason. Well now he's not having to carry the entire offense himself. So if that's the case and you're going to get a better rested better in condition. James harden when the postseason comes around fez to me that just screams brooklyn coming out of the eastern conference

I love San Francisco San Francisco. I think just because of its geography and how it's situated in the bay in the hills and the trolleys. San Francisco is one of the most beautiful cities. In the United States of America adventure to say it's one of the most beautiful cities in the world. You have to think about the tech industry.

Come on the Dallas Mavericks. If they play their cards right? They may have about 30 to 40 years anchored by two guys. Don't happen to be American.

"golden state warriors" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"The Charlotte Hornets. Second pick goes to The Golden State Warriors, and that means that the number one pick in the 2020 N B. A draft goes to the Minnesota Timberwolves. Just let the sadness just wash over. Us as Knicks fans. I will say this about this draft since there is no Zion Williamson in this draft. If you're a Knicks fan, you're going to get a quality player period. It's not a top heavy draft. Yeah, I know the consensus. The top three guys that are going to go in the first three picks. We know who those three dudes are going to be. It's going to be Edwards to get out of Georgia. It's going to be Wiseman the kid out of Memphis, and it's going to be the mellow ball, who played in Australian plate of overseas before having a chance to be part of the MBA draft. But in a draft like this A deep draft compared the most drafts world just top heavy here and not Not balanced everywhere else. It's going to be fine expands. Come back from the ledge. Put the shop objects back into the drawers. It's going to be fine. By the way. Why don't you get the blues? As bad as has been for the New York Knicks organisation for the last 10 years safer that one playoff you're involving Carmelo Anthony. How much worse can they get You starting over anyway, you got the eighth pick in the draft could be a lot worse. You could have no picks in the first round. You cannot have a single pick in the first round. That's how bad it could be. So for any Knick fan out there complaining being upset. Ya gotta leave it alone. You got the eighth pick. How team has Theeighty pick? It's going to be fine. Because what else do you have to lose? Especially right now, when you are that organization under that ownership Just keep your fingers crossed, Say a prayer at night. Do a dance around hope for the best and hope that everything is going to be a lot better than it has been lately. I'm Freddie Coleman on Friday, and Fitz Simmons on ESPN Radio, the ESPN app in Syria. Excellent channel 80. Don't forget to tell you a smart speaker. The play ESPN radio. I will say this about the Golden State Warriors. There's no way of trading out of that pick. I got the second pick in the draft, and my choice is potentially could be either Edwards of Georgia or James Wisemen of Memphis. This team with 15 and 50 last year this past season. I'm thinking Golden State's going to be fine. Getting stuff back. Clay Thompson back Draymond green. There's no way and there's nobody out there worth while the trade out of the second pick. No team is going to be silly enough. The trade a ransom to the Golden State warriors to help them be back in the MBA top elite again. For the second pick in the draft and any worthwhile free agent a free agent to be. You're not going to part with that guy so we can stop all the potential yacht is out of the couple thing. Maybe going to Golden State bucks are trading him. They believe that they're going to re sign him. They are hoping that Yannis is going to re side with the Milwaukee Bucks. They're not going to trade anticipating that he might not stay. That's not happening. And if I'm golden State as smart as they've been, and also as lucky as they have been until last year, there is no reason to trade out a second pick in the draft. Whoever Minnesota takes You take the other guy. I'm thinking the way they play basketball. Anybody with a skill set? What was a George brought to the table? Ah, wisemen of Memphis brought to the table for the doubly decided to cancel his season. Golden State's going to be just fine. This will be a 50 55 win team and a loaded west once again on this bad luck befalls them once again. Just like it happened in 2019 into 2020 in Copan 19 interrupted that season. There's no absolute no reason. Unless somebody does completely player whips them or draft pick wisdom to say to trade out of that second pick. And if I'm golden, that wouldn't do it anyway. There's nobody out there right now, that is that valuable that somebody's willing to trade to you. Golden State for a second pick in the draft, not happening. Take that pick involve him. In that system, Golden State will be back, contending in the Western Conference and Natural Order be restored in the MBA. There is no reason by the Minnesota number one off the golden state and number to the trade. Out of that pick. You can always hit me on Twitter at Coleman, ESPN.

"I don't know if that's a sign of the times, or just the age that we're living in. But, you know, Russell Westbrook. It's certainly had tons of incidents with fans were they he feels they're crossing the line. And if an owner can put his hands on a player, then I don't know that, that's a good precedent to allow. Yup. Oh, yeah. And it's usually verbal, it's usually we see a fan yelling, and we at home watching TNT or ABC can't hear what's being said, rarely does it get physical, mclovin said, there's no really physical incidents Rian fans and players. That's why this one was so shocking, even know this. There's an old dude giving Kyle Lowry. A little push Kyle is gonna make it. He's going to be okay. You not didn't dislocated shoulder. But usually, we just see angry fans yelling stuff and players walking, right? Past. That's why this one stands out. Well, they're lucky that it was Kyle Lowry, who was a professional who handled it in a professional way. Even when you look at Russell Westbrook with that incident in Utah, I can't can escalate, so quickly and then all of a sudden, and I know you can say, well, okay, yeah the mountains at the palace. And now that's the exception. It it's so quick. And imagine if you're an eight competitive mode, you're trying to you're in the NBA finals, you're going for a loose ball next thing, you know, you have some guy in your face saying things to you, and then pushes you out of the way. None of it's acceptable. You're you represent the team. I don't I don't care in, in what capacity. This man is representing the Golden State Warriors, and he has those seats because he's representing the Golden State worse. He invested in the Golden State Warriors. I don't care what degree you are as an owner, you're still part of that, that organization and I got I have to hold you to a higher standard. And that means I would sit you out for all the next year. And I would if you come back, you're never allowed in the lower part of the arena, and I would strongly consider making him sell his interest. Yes. Mclovin, one thing that sort of hinted at two, I do think that cell phones, make it seem like the problem might be worse. I'll betcha in the seventies and eighties. The fan interactions were just as ugly. And I'll tell you Philadelphia was famous. I bet you they were even uglier but nobody ever had. You know, unfortunately, what set a Russell Westbrook. There's a long history in Philadelphia of similar taunts towards players. It's just now that their cell phones, we see them. So I think he's always been this. I mean, I, maybe you could tell me they're always been this problem of heckling that gets oh, the language. Yes. And there are a couple of go words.

Well, I wanna talk to you about dre Mons because he did struggle in some ways, obviously, and it's interesting because we haven't given him a lot of praise and his versatility has been a big part of that. At least that's what some people of said, why did he struggle last night? Because he play eight minutes in game one. He just came back from an achilles injury to begin this year.

That's what happened to DeMarcus cousins yesterday also for the Golden State Warriors, they did a lot of complaining to the wrist. They, they got favorable whistle in a previous game Toronto, the raptor started the game attack the basket a couple of big time fouls. Dray mama's upset at the rest boogie was upset at the rest, even Steph was barking at the rest. And guess what guess with Toronto, Raptors were doing shooting over fifty? From the floor over forty from three. They were officiant. They were affective the Golden State Warriors while we marvel at their offense. They're calling car, actually quietly is their defense, and they have not been playing that style defense that we grown accustomed to seeing the last couple of years. The raptors you take the to one lead in this series. And let's talk about choline Leonard. He had another solid thirty point night game. Jalen, but you mentioned earlier that you feel like you saw a little more burst out of his game being there in person. What did you see up close and personal from him because obviously he has been slowed down by injury. So I've been following colossus. He was in high school. We play for the same college coach Steve Fisher and the board, man, I had never seen him a couple of games without getting this dump and have y'all noticed. He not even dunk it with his right hand anymore. He's only Doug it with his left hand that lets you know that he's hobbled, but when he turned a corner, and he did that left handed dump after driving the basket driving the ball to the basket. A couple of times and miss it easy layups. This is what happens when you get older it for somebody that can't jump at all when you start to get older. All of a sudden, when you go into the basket and you able to explode all somebody that's a different type of finish, he did that a couple of times early in the actually missed the layup. And then he was like, you know what I'm gonna drive to the buck and I'm gonna Dunkel somebody and he got an an one. And then after that he became a lot more aggressive. He not. On a couple of threes. We can't take for granted. How effective this guy's been throughout the playoffs. Yeah. It's probably some foreshadowing there to see maybe more aggressiveness out of Kawais. We carry on and Jalen, I gotta get to you on this. Meanwhile on planet earth yesterday marks the eleven year anniversary of the now infamous pulp Pierce, wheelchair game. Speaking on MBA can't.

Well, then how about this lasers and four. Okay. That's. Humiliate is older and aging. If you would have said blazers in three then that's skip Bayless would have chimed in on that as a hot take. So you're hitting your trending. You're trending right now. I'm working at it Duran's injury. What what exactly is the injury. It's a it's a strained calf. He's had those before and the some people have said, well, he comes back from those in a week. Well, not every strained calf is the same and my sense without having any sort of medical degree or inside track toward one would be that they would like to rest him for as long as they can get away with it. If they go up to two nothing. I'd be surprised if you saw him at all in Portland if they up three one I'd say they wouldn't play him in game five. Unless this is a more serious injury than we think it is. I think he may basically get to rest it until they need to have him. The team that was on the floor in Houston to win that game. Is that the future of the Golden State Warriors? No because they're the guy who had thirty three and a half is in his thirties now. So depending on what you look at you know, as the future of the warriors, you know, all right on the assumption that Durant leaves maybe, but they're going to have to get some help. I mean, they've been drafting low for a while. Now, they really haven't, you know, struck a lot of gold, you know, in the draft, you know, unless you'd think that looney is going to become something special. But they've got to augment what they have. They've been looking for a wing shooter for a while that they don't that. They don't have yet and backing and filling with with Jonas Jared Cohen and and Quinn cook hasn't worked out plus Andre dollar is as good as he wasn't in the Houston series. Especially in game six he's heading toward the last roundup, and he's gonna be really hard to replace. So I think what you saw was. Warriors of the past more than the wars of the future and Klay Thompson foregone conclusion, he staying. Pretty close to a foregone conclusion. I know that every once in a while somebody wants to float out a story that that he's become dissatisfied in Oakland. But normally those come from LA where both both the Lakers and clippers love to float rumors with people and they get immediate play. But I've seen no evidence that Thompson is unhappy enough to to want to go, nor are the warriors be going to become miserly enough to not pay him the max. So now, I think he's staying I I'd be I'd be stunned if he left the jury mongering. That's more problematic. Because I think you know, I don't know if there's going to be enough money left for another max. Plus, I the the the conventional wisdom is that the way he plays. He will age quickly in terms of you know, he won't be that thirty five minute agai Swiss army knife who can pretty much guard anybody at some point. I think that theory is you know, you're gambling on how long you'll get the Draymond green. You're paying for. But you know, again who knows 'cause on the one hand, you know, that's sports writer logic on the other hand, there's Joe lake logic. Which is I have more money to burn than anybody else. And I'm willing to burn it at some point. There must be a middle ground somewhere between the stupidity of the media and the insanity. The owner how long has Steve Kerr going to be on the bench. I'm gonna say another two years, maybe three. But after that, I think the rewards are probably going to be less evident to him. I think his back is better. So I I don't think it'll be a health consideration..

"That's twenty five percents shooting hit thirteen of his fourteen free. Throws finished the game with thirty five point. But it was a somewhat unimpressive. Thirty five point performance on a part of James harden. And obviously he didn't get a call at the end of the game. So that affected him as well. Listen to what James harden had to say in the aftermath of the one oh four one hundred game one loss to the Golden State Warriors. We're gonna do about it. I was told her saying bigger, and it's probably a couple of morning. I just want to hear us man called her game. How was supposed to be called? And that's it and I'll live with the results. But especially we all know what happened, you know, few years back with like I can change the entire series. Just call it a game. How it's supposed to be called. And we'll there what the results in as symbol. In that last part. When James harden brought up Kawhi Leonard. I wanna stay for the record. I agree with them. First of all a couple of days James harden is my league MVP. He's my league MVP he should win it for a second year in a row. He was phenomenal this year average in thirty six doing the things that he's done on a basketball court James harden has been absolutely phenomenal. Nothing short of it. And he deserves the league MVP on us with that being said, here's the important point that I want every single person on earth to consider. When James harden brought up Kawai Linnet and how he was low bridged by. Zsa Zsa Julia a couple of years back when Zsa Zsa was in San Antonio. And they were going up against the Golden State Warriors. And it was game one against the Golden State Warriors and San Antonio was up twenty three. Josh low bridged Kawhi Leonard Lennox came down messed up his ankle, really bad so much. So that Gregg Popovich went ballistic, absolutely, positively ballistic over it. Okay. But San Antonio never had the chance and they ended up getting swept in that series. That's how big of a loss could wildland. It was your James harden is at least four times in the first three quarters. The officials mitt missed James harden be low bridged, I'm not accusing anybody or go to state doing something. Malicious like great Popovich essentially had accused Josh opera. Julia of doing that Tom a couple of years back. That's not what I saw the Golden State Warriors. They were defending aggressively. They were contesting shots all of those things would true. But nevertheless, having said all of that it is undeniable. There James harden. People were not necessarily giving him a place to land. That wasn't the case with the last play of the game. I thought he had placed Lynn Draymond green made a very accurate point trying to draw foul on three point shot. James harden lead three feet in front of where he took off for the jump shot, plus kicked his legs out. Draymond green absolutely positively gave him a place to land James harden and take because he was trying to join a foul in a referee's accurately in my estimation. Didn't fall for that okeydoke. But there were times in the first half. I counted three times of the first half. They missed. When people defended James harden did do that they did deny him a place to land and those were fouls that should have been called in his favor. And so if you're James harden, one of the prolific deep prolific score in the game of basketball today, and that stuff has been happening for you to out the game, you're gonna be a bit hesitant. And it's going to affect your shot. If you're worried about where you come down to land. And I don't think that can be ignored. I think James harden makes it very valid point not about the last plane, but about the overall officiating of this particular game..

"Are at this week's conversation is with NBA head coach Steve Kerr, and he's a coach of the Golden State Warriors. And if you're familiar with possible, you know, that they had been on an absolute tear for the last handful of years. It's been an amazing building of team chemistry and performance that Steve has been part of at the helm of. And it's just flat out ridiculous. What they've done. And so this conversation is working on pack and decode how how has he done that who has he become and who is he working on becoming and what is the path that led him to both of those places in more. Specifically he this is his fifth year as head coach with the team. And during that time he's helped the team towards three NBA championships for straight NBA final appearances the NBA single season win record seventy three wins in NBA coach of the year award in twenty fifteen twenty sixteen in four of the five. Winningest seasons in franchise history loaded so Steve who won five NBA championships during a fifteen year playing career now has eight championships. Either the player in a coach and is the first to win three NBA titles as a player and three as a coach so outcome. Yes. He's got. But this conversation is not about the outcome. It's about the process. It's about the way he thinks in organizes his life in for those of you unfamiliar with the Seattle Seahawks, which is an NFL team the head coach at that organization is p Carol he's also a partner in a business that we fired up together compete to create and his whole philosophy inside of that organization is to always compete compete to become the best version of yourself compete to be a best dad, the best son, the best friend the best coach the best player, whatever the role is at hand. And Steve has made a point to. To revolve, the warriors culture around joy and in this conversation. We discuss how Steve went on about building the warriors culture, and what he is most hungry for his biggest challenges at the moment. And then finding a way to keep the warriors driven and hungry and playing with joy after they've already experienced so much previous success and so winning after winning success after success is a whole different type of challenge. And Steve has a brilliant mind, A Beautiful Mind, and the way he expresses that genius inside a basketball is rare in its unique. And I think you're gonna love his insights, not just for basketball though, but life as a whole and with that, let's jump right into this conversation with coach Steve Kerr. Steve, how are you? I'm good. How are you Mike? Thanks for taking the time. I've been looking forward to having this conversation with you for a while. Pleasure. So the first time we met it was number years ago up at the Seahawks. And it was really exciting to see how you were getting your head around your philosophy in what it is that you wanted to do as a as a beginning. Coach has a beginning phase of your life of coaching. And I just say, wow, congratulations. What you've done and how you've done it like remarkable. Well, thank you, dad. Never could've Agean that our team would have this kind of success. I knew was taking a really good job. We had a lot of talent. But to think that it would all come together like this. I never never could see that coming. But it was it really was a great time for me that that summer. Trying to figure out you know, how I wanted to coach and. My visit to Seattle seeing using Pete watching the Seahawks practice for a few days. Just seeing their culture senior environment was a huge influence on me. And and it continues to be so, you know, Pete Pete remains a good friend, and we talk quite a bit. And I love the way he goes about his business. And that was a big experience for me in terms of helping me become the coach I am. Now, you know, one of the things that struck me about that brief intense time that we had was how. Great of student. You are. And now I'm saying that in you've won. I think today eight championships, and you won a handful five of them as a player, and then like to watch you learn I was like okay here we go..
"golden state warriors" Discussed on WFAN Sports Radio_FM
"Don't think you know. It's that's what u s which aimed for. And that's what for for. Getting the top pick in the draft or they're this good players. He always gonna get somebody good. But. They go against the Golden State Warriors. And I, you know. They held Golden State that thirty one percent from three which is that's pretty good. Even even curry was three for twelve from three, but he's still had fourteen points and fourteen assisting in Thompson Klay Thompson who was a slump for a while. Trump forty-three. And this is why the Knicks you listen to the physical, and he says all the right things. But you're trying to build up the team so and so's playing well, and he's doing this and who's doing that. But you know, they come out in the third quarter. And that's like the achilles heel. If I like the Knicks are like a two quarter team they can pretty much play. Well for two quarters after that, you're asking too much. And they get outscored in the third quarter thirty three to nineteen. That's why the nets are the team to keep an eye on. They they got a good chance of being anywhere from sixty eighth seed in the playoffs. Big bad teams in in the leaving a little run going, and they might soccer soccer team here and there, but someone earlier was saying, oh, the Knicks. Knicks EPA zingers and and Zion. Williamson and Katie. Like, I said we're saying if I'm if I'm Kevin Durant, and I'm tired of winning with Golden State. I'm gonna come to the Knicks for what? Go to the nets probably make them number one seed in the east and then beat Golden State in the final. There's there's your legacy beaten team wins a couple of sandwiches with you and goes back, and you beat them. I would. About building a statue. That's I don't think he's I think he's going to leave something about something about winning. And then there's winning a championship. Look at look at the west is by what twelve? Nine ten eleven teams had winning records. In east was six five seven. I mean, it's different. You got guys in the west that aren't gonna make the playoffs and have a winning record. That's why he might be a good idea to change the way you pick your playoff teams. But then you get to the jets and and. I'll be honest with you. I don't have a favorite to be their coat when when McCarthy got fired I said to myself, okay. He's gonna go to top of the list of the jets. But that's that's just because right now, there's nobody else. Nobody else had been fighting in the deluge began. I said I would not be surprised if he doesn't get a job. Gwen coaches start winning Super Bowl as Super Bowl hall of fame. Coach, I don't know. Usually when you get that second ring. That's what it really means. They only went to the Super Bowl once. But I don't I don't have, you know, gays from Miami that that gonna play well here. Someone brought abrasiveness Jekyll realizing it was finding forgot about him. But they need an offensive guy. They probably a young offense guy. That's that's that's the whole problem with with the jets. I mean. How did they set this up? Let me get this straight. Again. The the coach reports to the owner GM reports to the owner doesn't seem kind of weird. The structure just seemed strange. Michael. And I talked about earlier about them changing the culture. Maybe how about everybody. How about the coach reports to the general manager general manager of the owner? Let the let the coach pick some of the vegetables he's got to cook. The famous parts. Let me pick them and vegetables cooked ingredients. And I gotta make me out of. When it makes sense. You wanna be on the same page question. I think the coach outweighs the general manager then in general manager comes in. And if you're not doing well, he wants to put his own guy in just a revolving door with the jets. First of all, you gotta get a coach. That knows what he's doing. Good work with a quarterback and get everybody in lines. You know, they're not a reckless bunch of guys. It's one thing to be aggressive on the field, but you know, concert mistakes. The rate is every year lead the league penalties. Everything if you could just I guess it's like trying to cut down on strike outs. It's impossible with the raiders, you're not. You're not cutting down a penalty. They're always gonna make penalty. They're always gonna lead hits and whatnot. That's that's their culture. Maybe changed when I go to Vegas. We don't gamble as much. So we'll come back and kicks your calls. I'm still looking for a lead candidate for the jets. But doesn't seem to be one. Like, I said, I think when when pick is made that anybody's gonna complain not now eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six is the number would come back but first time for a CBS sports minute with Amy Lawrence..
