"Some nba now so very interesting water cooler. Talk to send your way. Nba by the way starting just over a month already. We're talking kyrie irving is. She continues to work his way back from ankle surgery. This off season nikki reported this last night. Had a lot of people talking there are a handful of kyri traits that potentially makes sense for the nets kyrie's representatives have made it known that cairo would simply retire from the nba. If brooklyn were to trade him wealth kyrie read. This kyrie responded to this with this right there. An image a puppet. Then you responded with this kyrie if you're saying you didn't say you retire viewer traded. Then you're beef is with. Your representation is not with me because you and i both know. That's what they've told people. Nick busy nights on the old twitter for you. Take us through all of this. I mean so the the tweets really dum summit up to for the most part the fact that matters this there were a handful of teams that contacted the nets and take the temperature on whether or not any of the big three particularly career irving were available. Everyone knew that durant not available in hardens. Almost assuredly not available but since they acquired harden and because the net you know have a surplus of scoring and a surplus of ballhandling. There's thought kyrie might be available. And those teams were not told untouchable. No reason to call us back. It's like calling golden state for step. It will never happened. They were led to believe. Well i mean you know. We'll be irresponsible not to listen but now there is nothing to listen to because and this i know for an utter certainty no matter what gifts kyrie sends to me on twitter. Kyrie's people fold anyone that would listen trade for a metro own peril. If he were ever to be traded from brooklyn he would simply retire.

Getting ten north dakota getting forty-nine ohio's getting fifty five i put it out in. America has between three hundred four hundred thousand churches. We can absorb thirty-seven thousand. Afghans and people. Ask me well. What are they like. I actually don't know so. I thought i'd ask you. What do you think we'll find among our new americans. Well let me start by saying in my beloved state of florida. I'd be happy to get five thousand and these are hard working people and let me tell you something hugh we know in florida about people who flee persecution they were called cubans. They came here and built an extraordinary community in south florida. The community that cuban-americans help build this state in the sixty seventies eighties today or a vibrant part of it.

"Touch base on abortion politics. Which i've come just raging to the forefront because texas and the supreme court and done a little two step. That has think roy dictated what we're going to be talking about over the next six months american politics well and i find it interesting. You know we. We've talked about just over the last forty or seven minutes how do you get a blue electorate Pretty energized and. I don't think it was any accident that one of the first public office holders politicians to go out and talk about what texas did And what the supreme court helped texas do in in not issuing an injunction around the new state law. He was out talking about the the politics of abortion and what could happen throughout the country and in california even though with a with a legislative supermajority. That's not likely to happen at a state level in california but it gives you a sense murphy. And and peter you know this is an issue that will greatly animate the democratic base and it may well be needed in a big way. Democrats are going into a an off year mid term and These don't usually workout as well for the party. In power and i think august was a pretty terrible month for for biden. The approval ratings have have dipped numbers with independence dipped and the real remedy is not different than california. How do you get that democratic base energized and this might be Just a huge huge political gift while the deb's always have the same problem which is their presidential year voters. Don't show up in the midterms mostly younger often of collar. And so republicans always have more muscle in a midterm elections. That said i would bet dollars to donuts that mitch mcconnell was just shopping etc when this This thing blew up with abortion because in the house races there are plenty of prolife. District's you can argue. Oh would we even help republican turnout but in a few of those suburban districts where they're going to be battles it's anthrax in the senate races. It's double anthrax. we wanna win. The pennsylvania the phillies suburbs on an abortion war. No way the democrats will also have a couple of hundred million dollars now which is something that senate campaign folks keep a sharp eye and then finally this thing and bind started to do it to his credit. This texas thing is vulnerable from the right. Kizer is not intellectually honest. Conservative is going to say yeah. Turn your neighbor in hackneyed law which is engineered basically skirt constitutional enforceability. is not the conservative way. It's not the american way it's a mob rule thing and so i think this is particularly good news for the democrats trying to take senate control because those those key places are where. This could be really bad now. The the footnote is the supremes. Did not endorse the thing. They just refused to intervene. What i thought was ridiculously on constitutional law but there is going to be an appeals process. I think the odds this thing gets nuked on the way to the supreme court hearing fairly high but in the political world who cares big scary abortion law. Big scary hint to pro-choice voters from the supreme court. That's all you need to set the east ablaze. So to speak just in time for the senate races to us bo burnham as a political strategist look at a white woman's instagram after this texas long supreme court ruling every white woman's instagram and my instagram feed. Every story was about this And it reminded me of sort of women's march era twenty seventeen people were posting about how republicans were trying to control bodies You know college educated. Suburban women were the lynch pin of the two thousand. Eighteen midterm vote for democrats for biden. They they used to vote republican actually back in bed before back before trump the And if those folks are motivated in the suburbs heading into the midterms again. It's just gives biden something to both like run on and run against and actually as robert like you know you're in the obama white house in the first couple years of his administration when and his approval ratings. Were going down like how like. How should the biden white house approach this like they have something to to point at and say like republic like in other words. There's not necessarily donald trump out there to run against. He's fading a little bit. But you do have governors and all of these states enacting a lot of very conservative legislation. It's unpopular like how like. How do you message that from the white house. It's a good question. I mean i think you know. The biden team. Smartly reportedly got out early. And said you know we're going to even the president saying there's a whole of government effort To turn back this texas law now the reality of it is. There isn't a lot that can be done Legislatively based on sort of where we are I think smartly pelosi and schumer have said they're gonna put essentially roe v wade on the floor of the senate and vote And i think it's smart to get people wild up. I think it's smart to get people on the record. As you said murphy. Some close senate races the top six most tightly contested presidential states in twenty twenty all have senate races in two thousand twenty two so getting getting those folks on the record is imperative again. I don't think legislatively there's a lot they can do but again. I think this will probably go into a broader narrative as the white house gets closer to twenty twenty two. which is. Let's throw all of these. You mentioned peter. All of these kind of draconian ideas then aren't really conservative. They're not really republican. They're just downright scary. Let's throw them all into a pot. And swirl that around and that becomes the kind message. You've got governors out there who they don't understand science they're you know they're they're not helping with the commonsense measures that would fix this pandemic they wanna take your rights away. They wanna do a whole lot of scary things and Meanwhile democrats are out trying to make the economy better for middle class. Americans and i think that's the that's the this isn't going to be a short term thing. I think this will be a long term thing that lasts well into november. That's definitely where they wanna go. Totally the issue is going to be. And i think this is underrated by the national media. Which doesn't try to have a partisan bias pretends to have a big twenty county college educated. Secular you know left of center bias culturally is the democrats can be scary to in the house. We found that in twenty twenty when they couldn't get traction off the biden win. And if the squad excetera we go into this three trillion dollars spending spree the dempsey and whenever you proposed new spending you win. Boats not necessarily true And and that's going to start. We'll be talking about it a lot. Next week This week as three point five. Trillion starts shrank. Progressives get mad the squad can be very scary about seizing the means of production so i think it could be a fear off. Republican cultural stuff versus democratic economic stuff. And we will be here watching it now. Because we're out of time except for the mailbag we'd.
"golden state" Discussed on Hacks on Tap with David Axelrod and Mike Murphy
"To go through a little of the registration numbers that both mike and peter talked about you know in august of two thousand three yet. Six point six million democrats You had five point. Three million republicans so forty four percent to thirty five percent with the rest sort of not stating a preference. So you had a much closer state than you do now. Democrats have only gotten a few percent bigger. But as mike pointed out. That's ten point. Three million democrats where republicans have literally kept their same number. They're five point three million repeal. We've gone up by ten thousand people in the anti trump and overall lost about nine percent of the state. Electorates is both of you. Talked about the newsom campaign is is is focused on your. This is as. I said it in a newsletter. We'll have a little a little later as well. This is not a rocket science. Reggie right. you don't need a shit on a micro targeting and a lot of fancy polling you just look at these registration numbers and say okay to peter's point like i gotta get out the inter. What would would exist of the energized democratic base. And then i've gotta figure out who isn't in that of that ten point three million democrats and i gotta make sure they understand. This is right in front of them and they don't even need a huge turnout. Just need a mediocre one because they're so big You know even a mid sized elephant can trample you to death to totally mix destroy metaphors but donkey aren't big enough for that to work. Now let me give you the kind of if you believe. The politics is often ironic chaos. God laughs at us. Here's a scenario. I think could happen. This recall could be the best thing to happen to newsom ever because he was stuck in mediocre land making mistakes. There's others a big scandal on unemployment benefits being ripped off billions and billions of dollars. It was a mess so now he's gonna win this thing i believe and he will be able to say. I slew the big red trump monster. Now the reporters sacked will say yes but only by seven points you know should have been thirty and yet nobody cares. He won he. He's going to beat back the ours. Then you've got folks like your barbara who were all pissed off. If he is smart he will do a re clock now and older wiser. Here's what i've learned. And because everything in america that happens first happens in california. I'm going to lead the way to post copa america. Put the middle class. I he's gonna shut the woke craziness that rules the party. He got him into some of this trouble and then he will get reelected. Because there's nobody big enough and democratic politics to take him out in the primary unless it's total keystone cops And so he'll win for free now. Validated and meanwhile joe biden stays in the vortex of hell here politically where he's facing a mid term. That will gavin wins easily. Because it's a rigged election. It's not going to have real opponents. biden's gonna have a bad mid term because of other things even biden doesn't control but he's made a little worse at least lately. Were see how next year goes Game is going to be in new hampshire in twenty twenty three as the fresh new face. Democrats are looking for If it becomes apparent by does not going to run again. That's where he wants to be and if these smart and goes centre-left and uses this he he can have a total re clock in a relaunch instead of sitting around his office rendering how his old rival kamla harris lapped him. So this can still be crazier near robert. I mean your pal bend. The ball told me that article. I wrote that he suggested. At least the california democratic party would be healthier with a stronger republican opposition because they today are more beholden to the quote unquote woke left. Mike talks about right. And i think new some has pivoted a little bit on the at least the crime and homelessness issues that have affected california wad of his photo ops or him you know cleaning up trash under underpasses and like like dealing with some of the basic like civic society stuff that you know. I think a lot of voters expect from their government and a lot of progressives on city councils in the state have you know taken quote unquote compassionate approaches to crime and policing homelessness. That are actually run. Afoul of where. A lot of moderate voter sentiment is i think The other note on. Mike's point which is interesting There's been three gubernatorial recalls in history. this is the third Remember scott walker in wisconsin back in twenty th. Well he was. He fought back a recall in wisconsin. And that you know. He won by a big margin in polar much more polarized state but that did help him become a celebrated republican conservative warrior. And he's helped us that those donor connections that fox news exposure in pivoted that to running for president did not work out for him. Obviously but it really helped him raises national profile. I guarantee you. There are more people in the country. Right now Mostly just because they listen to acts on tap who now. no gavin. Newsom is compared to six months ago. And and you know in a polarized electorate of polarized country like Most people aren't gonna pay attention to the nitty gritty of how many points he won by. Or why would the recall is about. He can't say. I slayed the republican trump beast. And you know if you're a you know a manhattan donor. That might be an appealing kind of thing for you. Or if you're new hampshire voter That's a that's an interesting thought. He makes a good first impression. You know he's he's a new act once you get out of california so we're safe but they could be really good for him if he does a big re clock off the win superior. You agree to that. This is This the newsom team is his righted. The ship they're They're not likely to lose this recall. Despite the fact that. I think i got six. E mail solicitations from people purporting to raise money on behalf of governor newsom yesterday in my In my inbox you would have thought this race was you would have thought they were five points down that probably ten points up again like two weeks ago through ago gap i i would have thought that um now i mean they could win by five ten. You know it's just broil numbers it. Yeah it just depends on much. The waking blue giant shows up elders. Not helping himself either. Not that like he's was. He made a comment for example over the weekend. Where he said. Diane feinstein might die next year. And i would be governor. And i would get to appoint her replacement like that's something that new some would have liked to say himself but kind couldn't and elder to set it and he's just like spooked the shit out of democrats in the state. You know elder is intellectually pretty honest. Which means he's doomed because he's a doctrinaire conservative and he got tangled himself up on slave..

"That's anywhere between one hundred and fifty percent above the national average to two hundred and fifty percent above national average. And why is this. Because of the extreme environmental environmentalists have a stranglehold over sacramento and have a stranglehold over gavin. Newsom keep our kids in public schools.

Who are battling it out for. The recall on the fourteenth plus abortion is back in politics. We're gonna talk about all of that and we thought we needed a really good guest so we reached into the world that the kids call the interweb and we got one of the best old friend both of ours gibbs e who got. Well this murphy. I will go slow on this. Because i know you're still trying to get over napster shutting down so we look we got. We got one of the best in the business here. Peter hamby formerly of cnn He hosts a show called. Good luck america on snapchat. Don't worry murphy explained that to you After we're finished recording that on aol right yes. You've got mail. He in writing now is a contributing writer for a startup called puck news. And i'm just gonna say this. I'll say this at the end but i'll say this at the beginning read what peter writes He spends a lot of time smartly. Lives in california's outside of the beltway. So it's not all this kind of pundit bs it's what's going on america thanks for for joining us. Thanks for having me on and go auburn. Suck having a guy in our to. We'll get to college football. He's part of an incredible new thing called puck which is a website of high level journalists dedicated. Totally to the humor of don rickles at least here so puck news. Check it out everybody. It's really cool. So gibbs take us in we're how do we. How do we explain this craziness. Well that's a great question so we're going to california today i'm You know we're we're really just a week away from this. Recall coming to an aunt. And you know peter wrote recently on california lives in california. Murphy is You know you're you're a recall guru if you will well. I live in california. I vote here. And i worked for arnold in the i recall. That's what got me to. California was minding my own business and tony. Georgetown waiting to be invited to a party with peter in the vanity fair guys and all of a sudden i got literally knock at my door at night wasn't even a phone call and i was bundled up and next day. I was walking around in my washington. Dc uniform khakis blue blazer and rubber soled shoes on the beach in malibu looking at a massive party that jeffrey katzenberg was having And one thing led to another dick reardon brought me out. In the former republican mayor valet was the leader in the polls at that point but he had an announced and one thing led to another next thing. you know. i'm looking at the mr freeze costume. In arnold's office in santa monica bennis kenneran on the line there and And went to work for the shorts but anyway enough about me. Let's talk about california so you to you to live out there you you sort of. You've seen this up close murphy. You saw this when it happened. One other time in history in two thousand three but give us a little bit of background. How does this whole process work. Well let me let me start with the political science one. Throw it to peter for his. Point of view is a keen observer. Living here now. So in nineteen eleven kind of close your eyes and imagine the hacks on tap radio theatre here. A bunch of guys handlebar. Mustaches got together in california. All men at the time and said on balderdash we need reform stein progressive ideas so they passed a constitutional amendment creating the initiative and referendum process. You wanna get around the whale. Oil trust were taken to the voters. Then they got their louder up and somebody said hey we need a constitutional amendment to be able to recall the governor who might be in the pocket. Our friend up. Claire says too much and they did that and then then they got really drunk and said and we've got give women the right to vote and that pass to and i'll happened in nineteen eleven here And now since nineteen eleven. We have had rarely the ability to recall a governor. And you do it by going out and getting you know a lot of signatures. I think it. I think it was about a million one. This time you get voters to sign. They turned in like two point. Three million because a lot of them get knocked out and Then there's a process and you can put a recall election on the ballot. It happened two thousand. Three with gray davis who had had a unpopular car tax and a few other things and it kind of lightning struck and then arnold and over one hundred other people ran And the the works are to balance the first ballot. Nestle be september fourteenth. Though here we vote by mail tremendously even more now during kobe. Because they've loosened up the rule which is a bit controversial basically male. Everybody you know on the voter list a ballot. Anyway you vote. Yes or no keep. The governor dumped governor and if dumped governor gets fifty percent of wins. Then you look at a ballot. There forty six people on the ballot this time and they're joke candidates semi serious candidates and the few actual piles on there. And you pick one and only awebber leads that thing. There's no runoff. It's one big battle with everybody from every party on it so you get twenty five percent of the vote. Your governor as long as the first election goes your way with a majority. So that's that's what's happening. Peter what What what what. It's interesting and murphy. Just said twenty five percent but in reality you get forty. Six candidates on the ballot. If there's a recall all you gotta do get more votes than anybody else. You can have a tiny percentage of the votes cast for somebody who becomes the governor of the largest state in the country. Yeah i mean the. I went back and looked at the margins from the two thousand and three recall and Gravis lost mike by almost a million votes on the. Yes no question. And then arnold pretty much consolidated you know the vote. He won with forty five percent among the other options on the ballot. This time yeah. There's so many candidates. The republican party you know has is pretty divided here. I mean there's one democrat first of all. Let me say this. The newsom campaign in the state democratic party made a bet early on. It's probably smart to say. We don't want any other democrats on the ballot right. The only option here the only campaign. We're going to run against the yes no question. One on the recall antonio vieira goza you know chronic thirsty politician thought about running again here in california to get on the ballot. Tom steyer has more money to spend apparently and he thought about getting on the ballot they. They're not running as an option to replace There is one democrat in there. Youtuber guy named kevin path but these are all. Mostly republican libertarian or just wacko..
Ben Simmons Informs 76ers He Wants Trade out of Philadelphia
"Which is what I think they call it around there is reporting that been Simmons. Does not want to remain a Philadelphia 76 or and he will not report to training camp. Quick note that we alluded to earlier Ben Simmons has $147 Million.04 years left on his deal. So weird when you hear that talk about I ain't coming to training camp. Just remember Money talks.

You get those two teams in L. A Yeah. You got one here in the Bay area. Very popular squad known as the Golden State Warriors and you have a squad in Sacramento said that is 1234 teams. 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.

"We're still talking about the fall out of the draymond green kevin durant situation the show. They did in which they both said. Hey it's bob myers and steve kerr's fault why. The dynasty broke up because of the way they handled our disagreement that we had in two thousand eighteen as time has gone on like you see this look draymond. Green is a smart guy.

Hey i want out golden state now. Because i want to get someplace else. 'cause you're blowtorch and your gm at your coach something. That was three years ago.

"Who would be a good story. I'm not going to deny that particularly considering what happened this off season. But it's really about him piggybacking off of a team. He felt doubted him. Winning the league. Mvp but coming up short of a super bowl appearance and then following that up with a super bowl championship. It really comes down to that. The reason why is not nearly as interesting as compelling as you try to articulate is because the packers are not a follow meaning. They're not an opponent that you get to knock off in route to your ascension. You see what i'm saying. The packers themselves that's the organization he plays for so even if he proves people wrong and goes out there and plays lights out windsor super bowl championship. Max a gouda. Kansas and hurt by that mark. Murphy isn't hurt by that. The packers organization isn't hurt by that.

He didn't address them eventually. He just told you. I i know molly we got a lot to get. He did he did. he did speak of that. He talked about the injury as well. And how much that changing.

"You The the where said to some degree When kevin durant brought up how in the stuff he was watching the last. Dance and scottie. Pippen refused into the game. You play getting on him with all due respect. Where the hell was steph curry. The baby faced assassin. The greatest shooter on the god has ever created the clear absolute superstar play for this team. The face of the franchise. Where was he at all of this. I found it very very conspicuous. Kevin durant and draymond green. Never mentioned his name not one time because a lot of times we see things and we have seen things that have transpired with the golden state. Warriors and other stars for other franchises would have been called upon to handle something. We've never done that with steph curry. No one ever says what about steph curry. you know what. Maybe it's because he's thirty three and he looked sixteen. That's how young he looks. Okay and obviously he's got that kind of wonderful affable you know personality it's impossible to dislike him and all of that stuff he's loved universally and whatever but i can also tell you that anybody that comes to the golden state warriors knows that he's the golden child and so for me. There's a lot of meat on his bones. You said there's a lot more than i have to say. I'll pass it to max and then we'll go back and forth.

"A report that Christmas Day is gonna be. It's gonna happen at December. 25th like every year Lakers nets? Yeah. One thought on that game. NBA Got it right. I mean, all the games. You got. Bucks versus the Celtics. You've got Golden State versus Phoenix. You've got the Knicks versus the land and the Brooklyn Nets and the Los Angeles Lakers are the highlight game in the middle of that schedule. They very rarely get Christmas Day games wrong.

They're not trying to combat the National Football League on Christmas Day, but the N B A. They usually get it right on Christmas Day, And once again, they knocked it out of the

"I'm hugh hewitt. The california recall ballots are arriving in the mail this week. Voting will continue until september fourteenth the last three days while out in person voting.

The elections should wrap up shortly after september fourteenth question one before the golden state's electorate should governor gavin newsom be recalled question to presents a list of forty six candidates who qualified for the ballot if a majority of votes cast on question. One are yes then. The leading vote getter among the forty six becomes governor. At least until the inauguration of whoever wins next year gubernatorial election. There is a small chance that either former republican congressman doug osi or republican state assemblyman.

Bloomberg peter thiel or a mark zuckerberg could actually tilt an election per ends none as indicated plans to do so but part of any such plan. Success would be stealth execution and until the moment of unveiling absence such an intervention. it has become a two candidate race.

My thinking right now is that if donald trump loudly endorses him elder would win the plurality of votes but probably at the cost of newsom surviving the recall.

Three time All Star, tremendous defense supplier. The biggest one Ben's game That's holding the Sixers back from being a championship team.

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.

How to Get Your California Stimulus Check
"Taxes can be complicated and filing taxes for 2020 might be even more tricky because many people have changed jobs or worked for multiple employers. But it's more important than ever to fire taxes correctly now because both the state and federal government used tax filings to determine who is eligible to receive pandemic relief payments. Additionally, some counties have local relief funds available with additional requirements. Joining me to Wade through the confusion is KQED reporter Carlos Cammarata, normally Carlos. There are lots of different types of financial assistance out there. How do I know I'm getting all the help? I'm eligible for the first two rounds of stainless checks the federal government sent out were based on 2019 income, However, the third round of eighties based on 2020 income, every taxpayer who turned up to $75,000 qualifies. That's why it's so important to file your taxes soon as you can. If your income went down or you got married or had Children, 2020. You could let the iris know about these changes and therefore potentially received more than the 1400 based credits. On top of that every California heard lesson 30,000 last year qualifies for a $600 rebate, Thanks for the golden state stimulus undocumented workers who father taxes with an item. Should also receive an additional $600 to make up for not receiving the second federal stimulus check. At the local level. San Francisco offers the working families credit a rebate of $250 for families who made less than $56,844 in 2020. But you need to apply through the city's human services agency. So that's a separate application. So residents in San Francisco who qualify need to keep that in mind that after the father taxes, they need to fill out this extra application. So all these

"Get two of your face for just six bucks. Participation may single item regular price. All right let's finish howard with jalen brown. And i don't know if you put them in the most improved category but he certainly has made some real big strides in the early part of the season. Averaged twenty points per game last season as we record this right around twenty seven. His field goal percentage jumped almost ten points in forty eight percent to right around or just a cut below. Fifty eight percent is three. Point percentage around forty three percent shooting thirty eight last year. I mean this is still viewed as jason tatum team. He's the guy at the top of the food chain. But jaylen brown's closing the gap on him right now and i bring this up in the context of trade situation. So i mean we're talking top of the show about james harden. How would you look in boston. Celtics are always the epicenter of trade rumors that have been over the recent years but as jalen brown almost become too big trade and we can use hard as an example like it sounds kind of goofy but would you trade jalen brown for james harden at this point with the way brown is playing and kind of the where this has been building towards over the last couple of years. Yeah i mean look. He's twenty four. He's not even really to his like early prime wherever you know whether they say primis twenty-seven so you're like you're like pre prime on a good contract to a good contract. He's twenty four. He's i mean. I think throughout the numbers already. He's averaging twenty seven four point five four point six rebounds three assists a game shooting at a great percentage. He's a a versatile and and aggressive defender. He's a great to him. He's one of the best two way players in the league right now and look. I look at the league. Forget the like the hypothetical jalen for hardening although it's a fun discussion if you of the who says no game i look at where the league is. Chris and i think if you look at the last several champions or just the last ten years or so. This league is so much controlled by versatile. Long athletic wing types. The kevin durant and kawhi leonard. Lebron james's and excuse me. Jason tatum and jaylen brown falls into that. Maybe is not the same exact level of some of those. And i don't want it. I'm not even saying jaylen and jayson nor belong with the durant lebron tier but those kind of players determine a lot about postseason success. And if you've got a guy who is in that you know six seven six eight six nine range whose long who can handle who can shoot. Who can defend multiple positions who you can run offense through. I just think that's where the league is right. Now in the celtics have different levels of it but they have two of them. They have two of them. I as a broad outline..

"Getting in that way but to your point like they're a functional franchise like they're doing the right things they're having success or at least a degree of success this season and it's not based off some absurd off season move that made them slightly better in the short term. Julius randle is on. I believe that expiring contract from the year the one he signed before. I don't think he's gonna play like this all season long especially not shooting numbers but i think he can be a solid score. Rebound what he's ben for for most of his career and you are building from the ground up. You're establishing a good base quickly. Looks like he's going to be part of your rotation where that rotation remains to be seen we haven't seen anything really moby top and yet but he was widely regarded by a lot of people going into the draft. As being one of the you know the better picks in and around that range. Mitchell robinson like you want to talk about things that can then have staying power mitchell. Robinson has defensive stopper does like mitchell. Robinson is a really really good defensive player. I think he's going to be a terrific shot. Blocker weakside defender in this league for many years to come. You put all that together. It's like all right. Maybe finish the season. I don't know what the equivalent of like forty wins is shortened season. Thirty thirty five wins. And then you're onto something you can drive somebody else in the lottery next year and yak. You can point to free agents say look. We're not the bad news bears anymore. We're not the gang that can't shoot straight. We're run by a front office. That is showing. It knows what it's doing.

Some of the quotes. I've seen from some of the players. They randall said this recently. Where it was paraphrasing. A little bit here. It's you know we trust the game plan. We know that we're going to go out there and beyond kind of a level playing field. That's kinda stuff. You heard in chicago. A lot from jimmy butler and others about coaching and working with tom tiptoes so even they don't make the playoffs. They finished ninth or tenth and the conference. But do it looking functional.

"But you do need to do it in a way. That doesn't hamstring you. One quick note. It may not just be the timber wolves pick and maybe the warriors bad as as they've shown time so we'll see where this goes it may be too top five top eight top ten whatever in a strong draft and if weisman blossoms into a star still a little early for that the a good indication so far but yeah they may have that rare ability to pull off the smoothest transition from championship era dynasty era to the next era without having to bottom out in a major way or bottom out for too long like they they kinda did bottom out in terms of record this past year but weird circumstances with klay out and all that stuff but they might be able to thread that needle. It's really tough to do. And but you want curry therefore it if if at all possible the one thing i'll say just in supportive of your your framing which is like. Let him hit free agency. he'll be thirty four at that time right. And so how many teams even if the if the fear we're we're going to lose them for agency. How many teams are going to go. Max out of thirty four year old Especially a smaller guard who. They don't generally age as well probably. There's probably not a lot of risk there unless you know say it's charlotte. Who just wants to bring him home and like you know have plant a flag. You'll put up. Put a nice little know flagging their kappa. Whatever i don't think there's a lot of danger there. I guess the other danger though is more of are you. Are you doing a disservice as it insulting in some way to steph curry to say you know what we're waiting waiting for free agency. We we just have to see where we are in hand and how you look like. Is that the wrong way to treat a guy who's much the franchises at the wrong signal to send to other stars and their agents and their families because that is. There's a political reality to chris. You do have to factor in perceptions and just wanting to show that we're the kind of franchise that always takes care of its own. I get that. Although i would argue that writing checks the total forty five million dollars in that last season is thanks enough. I mean i mean you. And i know it's never that simple. It isn't right. It isn't worth watching. Good piece by michael pena check it out over at sl dot com It's up right now on the site. You decided it was time to upgrade your outdoor deck.

"It's more about this chris. When he lands in philadelphia to play joel embiid or he lands in brooklyn to play with durant or when land miami to play with jimmy butler and bam out a bio wherever he ends up is he insists on still being a thirty five to thirty eight percent usage guy is still gonna want to dominate the ball and the offense the extent that he always has because if he gets somewhere else chris especially gets to one of his preferred destinations. It's going to mean pairing up with at least one. If not two other all stars and those guys are going wanna just sit around watching hardened beat the ball into the ground so the question i have is. What's he willing to do at this stage at thirty one having gotten all the individual accolades possible but not the ultimate prize. And i apologize to the celtics. Two thousand seven eight. Talk to ray allen for the story and it's about that sacrifice that ray allen paul pierce and chemical that made that enable the celtics to be better than the sum of their parts wanting to three hall of famers but if they don't play in concert with each other and each take a step back and serious steps back that they took then then you can't get there and james harden if he does land with multiple other stars somewhere that that's going to be the first question. How do you make it work. Yeah i think the counter i would make to. That is twofold one. It was a lifetime ago. I get that. But every time i talk to people in oklahoma city. I'm reminded of just how comfortable hardened was playing off of durant and westbrook again. It was a long time ago. And james harden was a complimentary player back. Then he's an mvp can't last now. What three four time nba scoring champion. So things have changed significantly but in that role. It's misleading for people to rewrite history. Not saying you do it but like some people rewrite history and say harden one out of oklahoma city because he wanted a bigger role he did got out of oklahoma city because they made the catastrophic of not maxing him out and thinking that you know salary cap ramifications were more important than signing james harden. If they had signed there may be the same things would have happened. Maybe would have wanted to be an alpha somewhere else but we don't know that to be true the other side of it is to that like everything you say is right. But i can't fathom by. James harden saying i want to go to brooklyn and i'm going to be the same.

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.

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.
