Interviewing Bucks' legend Marques Johnson
"And it's our Pleasure to welcome in a two time Emmy Award winning bucks. TV analysts a five time eh, NBA All Star. Did also play at Bella and won a national championship. That's Marcus Johnson here with us on the Zach Yelp show. Marcus appreciate the time How you doing? I'm doing bills. Everything is no good. All can play good benefits in basketball family from your lips to God's ears. Can't wait to see what's gonna happen in the N B. A bubble. I saw video back in February, You were wearing a Kobe Bryant jersey and you actually threw it down in your road. I'm still dunking at 64 years old. Have you been dunking at all during the pandemic? Or was that a one time thing at 64 district Cream donuts, Bad eye. You must have been nervous, right? Well, every year on my birthday, I do a dung just to see if I could still do it. I didn't plan on doing it this year. Just chill out at my son's a SIA. All over social media. They have got to do it contingent to the one in Sydney one in with that inside, And so, of course, I did a couple of warm up to feel pretty good and And we decided absent phone brought up two tackles. Omar, you know, taco fallen. Whoever jumped over him, Aaron Gordon. Whoever dumped over way last year Next year I'll be 65. That's the official retirement age. I've been retired. I'm Travis. You have to do one more 65 years old. I gotta pay the bed after that. I don't blame you. I don't. I can't even dunk right now. I can't imagine being able to dunk when you're in your sixties. Marcus Johnson here with us on the show. When we look at this MBA restart. We know that the Bucks are the best team in the league. From a record standpoint right now they're going to be the number one seed in the Eastern Conference. The's eight games inside of the bubble. What do you look for out of them where they could really ease themselves back into playing shape? The annex a great question. I was just kind of pondering that looking at the books. Play that scrimmage against neworleans the other night and You know, I just don't think that teams should put too much into the eight. Feeding games. It's a gradual buildup. You want to be planned your best basketball. Obviously when, when the playoffs start. This is such a weird. Praise the different type of experiment. Probably guys. And so, um, you know, see positives from the brother. I've seen not good things about in terms of Kind of fighting since, um, some difficulties against the product in here tonight, but, you know the season games Because boom Jose lost compete. He's gonna want these guys to come out and and just so effort show competitive competitiveness from Paris. But I'm not sure about the ones. The won and lost record is important. At this stage of the game. It's all about kind of a slow, gradual buildup. I've been exploding wants to play all secure here. When you look at the team from last year to this year. What do you see is the biggest difference as they even got better from what they were last year, which was impressive. Well, I mean, ways that it rest values that they're so what he has done that He's given Chris Middleton a breather at defense. Can't Chris I was just looking up Christian defensive record 107th overall, 22nd ranked small forward LeBron and collide As I said at the top. But Chris doesn't have to get all that energy trying to beat this Great three and the win. Clare and I could focus on his office and I was a result becomes one of seven or eight guys who was Trying to suit you both 20% from the three point line, stick to the set plus from the field and monitor it from the people that I think a 20 point today. Yes, I think that's direct benefit to Chris Middleton. Eric Bledsoe also, let's not forget him, Master. He struggle big time last couple of years in the playoffs and honestly, stuff a big farm of the playoffs. Uh, this year, he seemed to be a lot more comfortable in his basketball scared now. It is kind of getting a late start based on tested positive and them in quarantine and all that stuff. How quickly he could kind of get back into a rhythm and flow going to be a big difference. But today I think this team has gotten even better, but local tradition of Robin Has really been a great great move. But John forced our president breaking Robin Lopez, and now we've got two bent beak gets standings and leave so I think the defense has been even better than the great detective team from last season. Marcus Johnson here with us it Zaki help show on CBS Sports radio doing a little bubble breakdown on the Milwaukee butts nationally. The big question about Chris Middleton is. Can the Bucks win it all with him? Be in the Bucks. Second best player. He's a two time All Star. Give me the local feel on that. Our people still concerned locally about Middleton be in that number to peace and winning the championship this year. Right here is where you go. I could go to a barber shop in the hold of the brothers give Ah, little about depended on Chris have the huge games but In terms of inside basketball people, people that have watched Chris closely like myself. I really believe that Chris, it's all about his confident being an all Star to the second consecutive D up really? Helps his belief in himself as being one of the elite players in the league and kept in one of the shooters in the league. And you couple that with the fact that he comes back, he's getting guns for arms and get this definition I've never seen before. His body status. Probably way dog looks really good, really in great shape of the Kalpoe talked about his explosion and bounciness coming back after the four months off was really, really surprised. So he's really putting the work that during this time off to come back and make himself I've been so on. But with president mentally I think that way you get tomato last year, the average with just 14 points in the field, and he left. How Laurie, pending for a big cheque of those minutes in that six game lost to the crap. You have to be enough to love. So you've got a lot to prove, but I think Based on what I'm looking at changes of his body where he is physically brave is right. But I think he's ready to make that statement. When I look at the Eastern Conference, I really do fully expect Milwaukee. To get to the finals. They were in that one seed spot last year did not get there When you look at the Eastern Conference this year, who's the biggest challenger for the Bucks when the season resumes tomorrow night? It's really interesting. You get him some. I think three really legitimate. Even the Miami that mix also, you can't count out exposure and then the butler as your lead gap, but I think there's still a little bit godly hero of none. And guys like that. And then he began by making just a little bit young and that, Betty, but I really believe that Celtics man. I mean, people talk about the Raptors, who I respect about. Nick Norris is a great coach. Brad Stevens was great, but one through four in terms of scoring and issues and problems. You know Jason Taylor planted Kemba Walker is the number one option. That's two through four group these guys to produce and I think about taking on like the game, and that's the most since that Golden State a couple of years ago, but most just like second most 1995 in terms of looking for and then when Gordon Hayward is your fourth option, going going home. What is your fourth option? And then we talk about a container my greatest been, but then this Dylan Brown watching his footwork. Watching the lip bruised stands the finishes in traffic. He's a guy that could be a real problem for team like the book had been. The wild card would be market smart. Distant Jabba, even though Marcus Smart Sixthree export out of 16 11 Marcus Smart office of players and we know how much she just underneath their skin. And so he's a guy that has given me honest as much trouble as anybody scoring effectively and officially against it, So I said that and then the two big catch I mean the pick and roll for five hours straight that Boston life's run. Those two guys found business cancer, pounded it inside a greatjob getting into the paint and score of them that I'm not gonna puke my shot and roll that movies have private medical himself. I really believe that Celtics to me that they're not deed. I think both those four score that they have been a lot of pressure on the Milwaukee ways that do the Middleton. To defend at a high level every night in order to be a minute in a series.

He is visiting a hand specialist today to determine the next steps could require surgery today. I felt like he was just finally back right. Philip first couple of weeks of the season look like an all star that to me then changed my predictions of where the Celtics were going to be in the east so now that he's hurt and possibly out for a while. Now where what does that. Put the Celtics Future. Yeah this really hurts me because as a player that's come back from injuries. It takes you about two years to feel like yourself again. It's been about three. And so now he's really his best south shooting. What fifty six percent from the field forty three percent from three? He was back to the one. We do the guy he loved and can take over Games now. The reason why.

Every Team's Top Potential Free-Agent Targets After 2019 NBA Draft
"You about to be immersed in woke bombs, because it is that time of the year. Our NBA insider, everyone else joins us. Whoa. Just before we get into free agency, which is going to be interesting. We are now what twelve hours removed from the draft. Your initial takes who won who lost? Well, I thought the two teams who made the most significant trade last night. New Orleans, and Atlanta, both fared very well maximize the assets that they had Atlanta moving up into number four. To get. The hunter from Virginia. Maybe most versatile forward in this draft the best defensive player player doesn't need the ball in his hands. They've got a lot of scoring on Atlanta team. And then Cam, reddish, who is probably a top three or four talent taking a little bit of a flyer on him at ten and then New Orleans, you know, their ability to keep expanding this Anthony Davis trade. They got Jackson Hayes at center beyond Ziya Williamson David Griffin, thanks, that's going to give them in the long term. Maybe the most athletic front court in the league pick up another first round pick. And now also have nearly thirty million dollars in salary cap space to go out and free agency. And some veterans to this team that could make it conceivable that, that the pelicans could make the playoffs in their first year without Anthony Davis. And usually when you trade a player of that, caliber. From a small market, you're going into a full rebuild. But I think the winning the lottery being able to get Zion Williamson has a lot of David Griffin to go and just the opposite direction. And they're set up really well in New Orleans, talking about teams on the way up in there seems kind of scratching our heads about that would be the Celtics. What what's going on there? Well, listen, they're preparing to lose career being Al Horford in free agency. They've got in the neighborhood of twenty six twenty seven twenty eight million dollars in cap space, they could use that to go after Senator to replace Al Horford. Nicola Busa vich in Orlando's a free agent. The Lakers have interest there if they can get the cap space for him if they want to put all in one player, but which is at priority in Orlando. You know, there's I think there's motivation on both sides to get a deal done. But if they weren't able to, you know, Boston's and position to swoop in there and try to make a deal with vich Boston still has some really good young players. Now they go from team that thought they were ready to compete for championships to a team now built around Jason Tatum. Jalen Brown Gordon Hayward who still on the right side of thirty years old, and who probably will have a much better season this year than last. But they've got to address that point guard position in Boston. They obviously have taken a step back if both of those players are gone free agency and that's and that's how they feel. That's how it appears right now talking to Adrian ward NASCAR ESPN NBA insider on the show Pennzoil performance line. And something we had Brian win horse on earlier. We're talking a little bit about as teams you mentioned move things around or creating cap space right now. The idea that the seventy Sixers with some available cap space could potentially take shot or try and get a meeting with Kawhi Leonard coming up in free agency. Tell us what you think about the viability of that. Oh, I think they'll get a meeting. I mean listen getting a meeting and being a serious contender for free agent are two different things and very often the relationships in place that will allow a team to get a meeting I thought all along Philadelphia would probably get a meeting for Leonard. I think the Knicks will also get a meeting with Leonard, but the front runners are still Toronto and the clippers. But. Players and their representatives will meet often sometimes as a courtesy with other teams but their focus in Philadelphia is keeping their own. And that's Jimmy Butler Tobias Harris and JJ Rettig. He's an important part of that group too, and he's coming off an outstanding season. It's going to be expensive to keep that team together. They knew that when they made the trades for Harris and for Butler, but their priorities to keep them and also find a way to keep there. You know, I think they may get a meeting with Leonard, but I don't think they're going to be a physician to sign them or insider, eighty ask is with us right now. Whoa. What, what are we hearing? The latest on the, the possibility that there might be a sign and trade deal that keeps Kevin Durant in Golden State, while he's rehabbing. So he gets his money, and then they'll be able to get something for money moves on trade. I don't know anything about that. I think the focus and Golden State right now is to try to sign Kevin Durant to keep Kevin Durant in with the warriors. They're going to offer him a five-year max contract, just as they were before the Killys injury. You know all the options that were there for Kevin Durant before that injury are still there. All the teams that were recruiting him that we're willing to essentially offer them the full scholarship, nobody's pulling back on the book or the meal plan, he's getting full scholarship from everybody. Maximum. Allowable for years with another team five years with the warriors, and they're determined to try to keep him keep Klay Thompson. Great analogy, by the way. As far as actual galleys of free agent when you can actually talk and deal with players. Forgetting that how much of the race is going on right now in the timing issues of these teams talking back door to try and get these things done. Now I mean we live in the real world, Mike and free agency started weeks ago just did. And so it's ongoing. You cannot keep people from talking, there are different philosophies out there. There are different styles going at it. I'm not saying every team is out every free agent is out, literally to go shitting numbers. But are there, some yes there are, and that's always been the case? But I think because of how many teams have so much you have over ten I think ten eleven teams with over twenty million dollars in space and teams who could go get it with one trade. Or waving a player who's got a partial guarantee. So there's lots of moving parts in this free agency teams don't want to be left behind. but you could also you can talk to your own player all the way through boston was able to talk about extension with al horford and it didn't look like they were not close on the numbers and that's why horford is headed in the free agency he feels they have some confidence there's a much bigger offer or offers out there for
"gordon hayward" Discussed on The Pat McAfee Show 2.0
"And when you're kicking to lot of knee stuff. So I'd be like half swinging it in the ball would be going pretty good like it would have kept me a job with the half swing. But if I really wanted to go, I like had to really in my head be like, all right. I'm gonna really swing at this potentially blow money back out again whenever all the doctors are like not your knees. Good you just gotta go for it. You just gotta go for, but in the back of your mind, you're like, yeah, if I go forth, and I got to go through a surgery again, I gotta do that. It really is a mental block, and people just assume because they play video games and you see other people come back from injuries. But I think all professional athletes that go through surgery. Have that mental block, where they're like men. I do not wanna blow us out again, because there's a lot of money on the line. There's a lot of pressure on the line. There's another rehab stint that has to go through. So it's a real. It is a real hurdle. I had it with my knees. It's which is a much smaller situation than having a blown ankle in basketball when everything revolves around jumping and running, but it is something that you really got about. That's why was I was like so intrigued to ask him because I didn't even think about the not even gelling with your team didn't even think about like oh, you know what? Yeah. This guy hurt himself. He comes back to form. He'll be good. It was like didn't even think about him never playing with those guys did not necessarily any of them rooting for him the comeback because taking playing time money will use. He's been in the other side of that coin. When you had high price free agents come into the colts of silly in a couple of got hurt and didn't play. And then it kind of changes the way you think about someone unless they can come back and contribute unless they weren't there as you come back. You know there was some people that got hurt, and then it seemed like they just didn't care. So they'll all they did was just scrape off our salary cap make us a worse team. And it's like this guy was this guy hit what is this guy doing? It sounds like Gordon Hayward feels like he owes the Boston Celtics. And that's a, that's a cool thing to have. I hope they do. Well, I'm very thankful. He came on and it was him think. Yeah. I'm still gonna five percent. Maybe green text messages. Apparently, it does research on his phone. I mean he's right. I'm saying, I'm a coke guy to just go to blindly go to apple. You can take it easy argue it's the other way that people who are. Yes, grandstanding that you need to get a Google pixel or something. That's the Colt, right there, sports psychologist, by the way meeting with sports. Psychologists also pretty big thing that happens with a lot of professional athletes. Not a lot of people were like open with it either. So I was very thankful that he said that because every L professional athletes, they don't wanna show weakness, right? A weakness means it could potentially be cut. It means that they could potentially fail. It means they're not these superstars that a lot of people make them out to be him being, like I had to meet with sports psychologists is really cool of him, by the way, very humble of him to admit the is that what they call it. Like when you get the. The is whenever you start getting like paralysis by analysis, when you start over thinking, everything the mental hurdle could be a type of Yip, I guess, but more, so that's with technique normally, the come through technique when you're over thinking, when you're like, okay, the thing, that's kind of the gifts, essentially, right like less, they're less. They're not being able to throw to first base. That's more of a mental hurdle. A Yip is like whenever you're going to shoot like let's say goes into a a coach streak..
Kyrie Irving's Free-Agency Countdown Officially Begins Now
"Is what happens with Kyrie Irving because Kyrie Irving is now in a situation where he's going to become a free agent at the end of the season. And he's head is worse stretch of playoff basketball in his career over the last three games. The guy has literally missed forty three shots in three games. Forty three shots Janta Toco is averaging nearly thirty one points per game in this series. And Kyrie Irving is averaging twenty one and you're saying, well, yeah. Yeah. This is the better player, but Kyrie Irving is supposed to be the alpha male the Celtics team he's supposed to be the star. And he's averaging ten less points per game than the guy on the other side is and after the game when he's asked about he's shooting struggles, he said who cares? That's what kyri ever said. Who cares? We'll tell you. Everybody cares. Right everybody. That's rooting for the Boston Celtics. Everybody on your team cares. Because if you don't perform at a high level they have no opportunity to win the game. He said after he shot eight for twenty two from the field on Friday night that he didn't expect another eight for twenty two performance. He followed that up on Monday with a seven of twenty two performance after game three he called himself, a basketball genius a basketball genius. That just so happened to miss how many shots v. Fifteen in the last game. He played them. But Cairo is telling us all that. He is a basketball genius. And for all the things that have happened this year with Kyrie Irving and the Celtics organization he's called out his teammates multiple times. He said the young guys aren't ready to win a championship yet. And to that I would say kyri you're not exactly ready to championship as the alpha dog yet. You could do it when you're playing side kicked. Lebron James, right? It's like those motorcycles with little sidecars. Kyrie was in the sidecar. You can do it as the guy in the sidecar. But you can't do it as the guy actually driving the motorcycle, right? Yeah. I'm able to prove that you haven't done that yet. So kyri you have not proven. You can win a championship yet as the main guy. Okay. So all the rumors all season long were about New York because kyri Irving originally said that he wants to stay with the Boston Celtics as long as the organization would have him. He did a commercial with his father where he said, I want my jersey retired in the rafters here in Boston. Right. So he said all that stuff. And then when he plays the game at Madison. Square garden. He says asked me about my free agency on July first, he also referred to the New York Knicks as a great organization, he's the first person ever to refer to the Knicks as a great organization, they have one of the worst odors and professional sports in James Dolan. But it appears that Kyrie Irving could be interested in going to the Knicks, and they are the favourite to land Kyrie Irving in free agency. So say, hypothetically, he decides to go if he follows Kevin Durant again, it would be something that is a masculine for Kyrie Irving because their whole reason he wanted out of Cleveland is he wanted his own team. Right. And he basically got the best situation to get his own team. He had to number three picks, Jaylen Brown and Jason Tatum. He had out Horford. Who's a great player? The guy's a great defender. Great shooter does everything for you. Great passer at the big man position. So you had a great roster around you, and you were unable to take advantage of that as the guy. So maybe Cairo Irving is learning. What were you all are finding? Out is Kyrie Irving just isn't a main guy. And if he does go to New York, and he does go there to play with his good, buddy. Kevin durant? What would that be saying? He would actually be admitting. What we've all been asking about. Kyrie Irving is can you actually carry a team because if you go there to play with Kevin Durant? Sorry kyri. Kevin durant? The best player on the team. That's pretty damn obvious. So you'd be going there to be Kevin Durant sidekick you'd be getting back in that little small seat in the motorcycle alongside Kevin Durant. Just like you were doing with the Brian James. So you'd actually be admitting that you were wrong about yourself. You were wrong that you could carry a team to a high level to an NBA championship caliber level. You'd actually be admitting that but moving forward with this thing say hypothetically that they get Kevin Durant and Kyrie goes to play with his friend because he can't carry his own team. He goes there. Then the question becomes if the Knicks are able to win the draft lottery. Would they be willing to go all in and make another big move? Because what the Knicks could do which is amazing to me to even fathom this. The Knicks have been one of the worst run organizations in sports they've given out bad contract after bad contract. James Dolan has been a mess off the court the issues, which is Oakley. It goes on and on right? There's been so many issues with the New York Knicks. Okay. This team that was so dumb. Carmelo Anthony only wanted to play for the New York Knicks. He was in the final Ervin's contract. And you got it your roster to trade for Carmelo Anthony when he would have signed with you in the off season. Anyway. Okay. This is that same organization this organization could in a couple of months land to stars in Kyrie Irving, and Kevin Durant. Just because they're located in New York and just because they play in Madison Square Garden. It's kind of like the Dallas Cowboys like players want to play for him. Not that it's bringing them any high level of success. But because of the Dallas Cowboys, right? The Knicks are kind of that team like just because it's the Knicks and its New York, and it's Madison Square Garden, apparently people go there and with Kevin Durant is. It's this whole situation of well. I'm never going to get the credit. I properly deserve in Golden State, or at least. I'm never going to get the credit. I think I deserve. So if I go to New York, and if I carry a team there, maybe I will win back the fans that left me saying it was a cowardly moved to go to Golden State. So you have two guys at grumpy, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant. Then the question becomes if you win this lottery. Are you going after Anthony Davis do because that's the next good legitimately? Do. That would be the best piece that anybody anybody in the league could offer the New Orleans pelicans, the number one pick in the draft, which would mean, essentially the rights design Williamson. Okay. So you could have that if you're the New Orleans pelicans. That's why they made the right move the whole time I've been trying to say this by taking the Lakers deal because now Philadelphia maybe they become involved. They put Ben Simmons in this thing. We know the Celtics could offer Jason Tatum. Jalen brown. If say, hypothetically that they think that Kyrie irvings gonna stay. So there's that package out there. The Lakers packages still. There. There will be mystery teams that come around in this thing and Zion. Williamson out of all the stuff that people could offer. He would be the most attractive piece that anybody could offer. So the Knicks out of pure ineptitude. The Knicks pure incompetence could actually have the best trading piece to pick up a third superstar to pair hypothetically with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant. They've been so bad that somehow this could result in them this summer landing Kevin Durant's, kyri Irving. Anthony davis. Because of the fact they've been so bad like Kevin Durant going to New York. It's not like he's going to a winner. Right. That's part of the reason he can leave golden safe for New York is essentially what he's saying is. Yeah, I'm going to place. It hasn't won since Phil Jackson was a player ongoing place. That's desperate for a winter. Like he can actually sell going to New York because it hasn't wanted a high level the franchise he can actually sell that. That's a selling piece for him to go to New York to win fans back, and you know, the Kevin Durant. The second he signs on the dotted line or the second. He releases something whatever like the player's Tribune. Or something the second. He does that. He is a hero in New York. He's a hero in New York. Okay. And it's all because of this organization's incompetence they've been so bad that Kevin ranker justify going there. They were so bad this year that they could have the number one pick in the draft which they could either use on Williamson who's the best prospect since Anthony Davis or they could use. I n Williams to trade four Anthony. Davis depending on what kyri Irving and what? Kevin Durant could hypothetically what could hypothetically want. Now, if I was New Orleans that would be the easiest trait of my life. Okay. So Anthony doesn't wanna player he has an opt-out after this year. He's going to be a free agent next summer. You're telling me that you're gonna give me Zion. Williamson I could get Zion. Williamson who is the best prospect since this guy Davis that we Drake that we drafted years ago. Okay. Yes. Sign me up for that one. But man, I got to tell you this. And I understand that the Knicks. There's not really a reason to hate them because they haven't been good in a while. But would kyri Irving and Kevin Durant pairing be like the most unlikable pairing in the NBA? This would be worse than the Dwayne Wade. Chris Bosh, LeBron James pairing, right or the trio if you will because that was the reason people hated that trio wasn't because Dwayne Wade was dislike -able it wasn't. Because Chris Bosh was dislike it was. Because of the fact of how they did it, right? Lebron did the whole decision thing. And then they had that. Press conference where they came like out of the ground. And the bronze said not one not two not three that championship thing. Right. So that's why that team became dislike -able, but this team in New York would be dislike -able because of the guys. Right. They hate the media. They go after everybody they seem like they feel like they're victims. Right. We've seen with Kevin Durant time after time where he thinks that he's a victim. Same thing with Kyra. Kyrie Irving thinks he's a victim like Cairo serving. Also, there's no accountability. Kyrie Irving the guys not accountable for anything the other night when he misses twenty two shots. He said I wish I took thirty the guys not accountable. He talks about the shooting woes. He says, I'm not worried. There's no accounting. There's no I haven't played well in this series. I have to play better on the reason. We're losing I have to be better on the leader of this. There's none of that. There's no accountability whatsoever. When his team is struggling during the regular season. What does he say the young guys don't know what it takes to win a championship? So there's no accountability with Cairo Irving, everything that happens to Cairo Irving. That goes against his legacy that works in a negative manner. He tries to spin it in a way that it's the media's fault. He blamed the media for the Celtics locker room issues. He said the media tries to rip apart locker rooms kyri. You're the guy that's called out the young guys. You're the guy that got in the coaches face after he called the play for somebody else. You're the guy that yelled at Gordon Hayward on the court for passing Jason Tatum. When he was wide open at the end of the game against the magic this year. When Tatum was trying to win the game. You're the guy that did all that. You're the guy that has had a bad effect on the locker room. You're the guy that said you can't wait around for Jalen Brown. You're the guy that did all this. And he had the DASS ity to blame the media to blame the media for trying to destroy his locker room when he was doing all that stuff internally. He had the gumption to say something along those lines. And also you factor in remember when hiree Irving and Kevin Durant were at the all star game. And there was that video that emerged where it looked like Kyrie was saying to max lots and then Kyrie Irving when in. Hey reporter, I should say here in Boston. The Boston Herald Stevo pet gave him the opportunity. He said, hey, you wanna kinda pour water on that? Because that video had leaked out. There any said that you guys just do this for the likes and clicks. And this guy Steve pet that didn't tweet video didn't even write about the video and was just asking Cairo to comment on it in Cairo Irving said you guys just do this for the likes in clicks. He said, do you think this is what the fans care about this exactly what the fans care about? If you're gonna leave the fans actually really do care about that. That's why Kevin Durant free agency and your free agency. And Anthony Davis is trade destination. Those have been like the hottest topics in the NBA season. So Mike God that team with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant who had faked Twitter accounts. So he could go after fans fans that were criticizing him for leaving for Golden State two years later, he was still upset about that to the point where he put on Twitter that it's because it was Russ and nobody else around like that's why he left it. He'd. Didn't have enough around him to win a championship. He felt the need to defend himself on Twitter to just the random person that was tweeting at him. He made up a fake burner Twitter account. So that he could attack fans. Okay. Those two guys would be teaming up and possibly they team up with Anthony Davis who used to be likable. But now Anthony Davis says on LeBron show the shop that he couldn't believe after he asked for a trade that the fans booed him. He's like I poured seven eight years in there. And I go out there. And they me Anthony you ask the organization for a trade.

"gordon hayward" Discussed on The NBA Show
"And then Gordon Hayward comes back, and he's not Gordon Hayward anymore. He against that against the raptors on Wednesday night. He looked terrific. But overall the season he's had a lot of Doug performances. He does not look the same finishing around the room. So it's like for the Sixers the Markelle full problems in unique thing. But so is the Gordon Hayward thing a guy they're paying thirty million dollars a guy who had the serious injury that he did that this just does not look the same. I mean earlier the season in article I said how he looks essentially like a slightly better. Evan turner. And I do think some of these issues are a little bit glossed over partially. And I think this is why. Why it might be because the team's depth is still really good. It's a really deep team with a lot of talent. So they like each other when we like each other. Whereas the Sixers it's as you said earlier, Matt they don't have a lot of depth. They permit or defense is pretty much nonexistent with for cork. Mas and Landry Shamet and J verdict. He's a good offensive players defensive end of the floor. Even TJ McConnell Corey brewer now, I mean, we're we're going to change everything on that ten day. I'm ready for the title. I think ultimately the depth is number one issue though, do you feel confident and then being able to add depth on the buyout market. I heard yesterday that there was some whisperings of Navan lay. The they did express interest in him. I don't know that he's the necessarily the answer or anything like that. But it just shows you that like the Sixers, and they said it when they made the trade they're not done this isn't there completed roster. It can't be if they don't add anyone. Yeah. It's going to be a weird playoffs when we have like a six man rotation and everyone's tired, but I. Can't imagine they're done. What has been Simmons is ideal role? He's the catalyst for them playing fast..
Tyus Battle's 32 Lead Syracuse to Shocking Upset Win over Zion Williamson, Duke
"A lot going on in the world of sports. We'll get into more dominance from James harden, a decision that gets pretty easy for the defending Super Bowl champions in my mind at this point a decision yesterday did seem to be a no brainer. That for some reason. I felt like we treated like a lot more than it was. That still has plenty of drama left to unfold for one major NFL prospect. But I. Holy hell Zion. Williamson I understand that Duke lost. I understand that. And if you missed it last night. Syracuse went on the road upset Duke ninety five ninety one in overtime. We got a little free basketball, which for those of us watching the bachelor last night. There is nothing like watching Colton going camping with the girls and the bachelor house and seeing simultaneously. Oh, I'm getting free basketball to this was all of my worlds coming together in the absolute best ways possible. Now for the Duke side of things I understand Duke lost. But when you look at the circumstances around why it becomes not only understandable. But I think it's never excusable. I want to say that right now Duke is too talented across the board the guys that they had left on the court. We're still good enough to where you have to get this done at home. And I say left on the court because part of the story for Duke last night going into the game. Cam reddish, one of the stars in their team missing with illness. Not in an available for them in the game. And then about five and a half minutes in trae Jones their star guard a guy who's a defensive juggernaut for them and a huge catalyst for them. Offensively leaves the game with what Mike chef ski described after as a shoulder sprain. It's a shoulder sprain. And we'll put out because I'm not gonna do medical stuff. But it's a sprain. There's no break, although he was in a lot of pain. He's a kid that the toughest kid right away. I don't know if my car broke bonus broken, you know, and it was that it was hurting that badly, but it's a sprain. And that was my worry. The I I saw that you thought it might have been a broken collarbone, which would have been devastating for this do blue devils team that listen the proof is in the pudding like the when he is on and off the court for them just within the body of this game be five minutes and change that he was on the court during this game Duke point differential, plus eight with him on the court field goal percentage. Fifty five point six percent with him off the court the point differential, minus twelve thirty six point six percent field goal percentage. They suffer offensively they suffer defensively where he's one of the best, man. Demand defenders in the ACC. And so that is going to affect you always said when it comes to injury. Usually we talk about it with the timing going into the season. At different points of the year, injuries are going to affect you differently. And so if you're a star player that gets injured at the beginning of the season ally. Last Joseph the Boston Celtics, for example, Gordon Hayward being injured at the beginning of the season. You spend the entire rest of the year. Figuring out how you adjust without Gordon Hayward. Kyrie Irving being injured right before the playoffs. All of a sudden, that's a major adjustment for a guy who has been a huge part of your offense. You might grow that down to a single game. And Cam rightish, who you know is not going to be available to you. That night is one way you adjust the game plan. Trey Jones going down in the body of that game is another completely when you have to now adjust without that guy on the court for you without the certainly the encore leadership that he brings you and all that production, and so the energy shifted as one might say. To Zion Williamson at RJ Barrett. Who took who scored fifty eight combined points last night the second most by Duke freshman duo under Mike shefty, but it wasn't quite enough. And I say all this again is a backdrop to discredit Syracuse for going in there and getting a win. And Lord knows we have become accustomed to Syracuse teams throughout the course of time underachieving during the regular season finding a way to make a run that alternately lands them in a Sweet Sixteen type season. That's the capability always exists with a Syracuse team. But man, you even heard Jim pay Heim after this who as usual was lighting up the sidelines in a way that the internet sopped up and enjoy tremendously even Jim boeheim after this kind of understood like man, there was a lot working against Duke. And we are still the team as Twitter would remind you last night big night for Old Dominion Twitter. Because ODU Twitter was reminding you the transit of property can be ineffective you so choose and college basketball, and this is a Syracuse team that. Lost to Old Dominion earlier this year, and you can kind of hear their head coach wearing that dukes. Great team. They don't have to other key guys. That's the breaks of the game. Sometimes. Those two guys the whole game. But you know, it's just one of those things. I watched one tape white may eight threes one game. I think seventy a lot. He couldn't tonight. That's just the way the game is sometimes I am. I asked Michael junior here on ESPN radio and the ESPN app. Duke talk about not being able to buy one from three that was the other thing there were a lot of specific jokes made about the sexual prowess of the bachelor over the course of last night. Those were only outnumbered by Duke missed three point shots in a game where they went nine for forty three. Again, a game in which one of their best offense players out. They went nine for forty three. The most three point field goal attempts in school history. Duke now becoming the fifth AP number one team to lose at home to an unranked team in the last ten seasons. So. An outlier in a lot of ways. Again, you look at all the things surrounding this performance. I'm inclined to look at these and not excuse a loss. But understand the circumstances around and say, all right. I'm not going to sound the alarms yet for do. Because this is still a Duke team that again man you saw what Zion is capable in. The midst of all this for a team that has struggled this season against own. We know no one really runs it better than Syracuse. In a lot of ways Zion still thirty five points in a loss. He goes thirty five and ten in this game. He becomes the first major conference player. With thirty five ten four and a game since Kevin Durant. Did it back in two thousand and seven and you saw for all the talk. We had about on a while back. I want to be known as more than just a dunker. You saw that on display last night because him going down and being that differentiating force in the paint. And that's where in the past by the passed earlier this season when you look at the other loss to zag and the things that undermine them in that game with teams clogged up, the paint, this outfit tend to have a bit of trouble. And you saw them do a better job of that last night. They just couldn't hit shots. Like, it's we always hear about the NBA to make making mislead couldn't hit shots your one of your best players and a guy who initiate your offense. And your defense goes out within the first five minutes of the game last night. And all of a sudden the plan changes. Now, what it means going forward becomes entirely different and Jay Bilas ESPN college basketball analyst pointed that out that long term for Duke. The worry. I think any team that loses a point guard like that is going to have some issues and.
Gordon Hayward of Boston Celtics scores season-best 35 points
"By halftime in Boston. Gordon Hayward scored thirty five points in thirty two minutes off the bench shot fourteen of eighteen of course, was an all star in Utah signed for big bucks in Boston injured all of last season. He has struggled this year. There's previous eleven games. They were didn't sport as much as twenty points. Scored any points in his previous game Celtics beat the timber wolves one

"So, but he has done a great job step before he's trying like crazy. His defensive numbers are up better. But. If Marcus smart had the anywhere near the ability of any of these other guys on the team, there'd be no question. He was the leader. He's the one they listen to they looked to. And so putting him in the lineup made a ton of sense. He has the respect of that locker room. You know? I'm not sure Tatum and Brown do yet. They've got a ways to go, and you can't fool players. And you know, what it was a good move to move. Gordon? Hayward to the bench for the same reason? Everybody on that team understands how good Gordon Hayward Ken be. But you know, what? Again, they don't have time to wait for what Gordon Haywood Ken be. They need someone that's ready to play now. And I think Brad Stevens did a good thing by moving into the bench because you know, those two are so closely tied because of their connections to Cutler the last thing, you need is your players starting to resent you or your that's your favorite, son. You're giving him chance to chance after chance at the other guys aren't getting none of that's true. He moved Gordon Hayward to the bench Gordon Hayward handled it beautifully. So, you know, I think off they. So for now, I wouldn't touch I wouldn't touch, you know, they could be up to twenty straight by the time. They get to play Milwaukee. Because as you said there's cupcakes coming up. It's usually you mentioned a resentment in you were talking about a different context, but I can't help but read these kyri quotes. And I wasn't there for these interviews in echoes stuff that he said before, but he he just can't stop talking about how he's won a championship. And knows what it feels like to make a big shot in the finals. And look he made one of the five big shots in the history of basketball. He can talk all he wants it. I just wonder like sometimes you just like, I just wonder do you are the other Celtics player's gonna get tired of hearing about this is I don't even mean to make it an issue. It's just every time. I read a Kyrenia you'd physic-. He's talking about what they did in Cleveland. And if I could see the wrong person on the Celtics whoever it is in their head being like man, I don't want to read about the same. We all know we got to game seven less you like it's not like we did nothing. But maybe just maybe I'm reading too much into it. Well, I think unthinking. Has some pretty high status among those guys? Yeah. The young young everyone in the NBA loves kyri. Yeah. I mean, he's you know, what he's accomplished pretty incredible. And I know I remember when they were thinking about trading for him and the word was getting out Rosiere and smart happened to be down. I think it was in Florida, and they ended up playing in a pickup game with Kyrie Irving. And when it was over the two of them were like, can you imagine if he's actually with us? I mean, he's got that wild factor. It's like he put him in the category. Like like, Alan Iverson. Have you ever heard another player ever say a bad word about Alan Iverson? Never never no matter what his foibles might be. He's just got the credit, and you know, it's funny to election degree, Carmelo Anthony. Have you ever heard another player dog Carmelo Anthony? It's usually the coaches in the front office. Right. And so to me is in that status. People have respect for him. And I know he has the respect of that locker room because one of the things he's done, which is really smart. Is he listens? He listens to the other guys. He like he says in the stories AI. I guess I didn't really know what I was doing. You know, he he's not saying he knows it all it's an unbelievable. I'm not going to spoil that quote any further. It's an unbelievable quote from Kyrie that I had to request to make sure I was just saying it correctly. Exactly. So I think he's very much in tune with Gordon really in the preseason before. Gordon had that horrible injury. I didn't get to see those sessions. But everyone told me the two of them the chemistry..

"Had him if he could be that greedy defensive point guard at passed off the bench and hit big shots in the fourth quarter and help carry that second unit, he can be that they can really be number one, you lose your name, everything he does. I mean, I don't know if that the big shots in the fourth quarter, but he do radio bigshots in the four years, some big shots he did, but he's on the floor no time. I wouldn't say he's a big. He's got a big shot mega, but sometimes you can come off the benches and threes get the energy going like spark book for me. It was Gordon Hayward Gordon Hayward as well. Gordon, Hayward. We're going to get from boy, I didn't. I don't really want to put him without an award. I was gonna get it all. So Gordon Hayward is the player from Utah. Playoff night down shots has some length and size of the fan. Like Utah, Utah. He had a base cared offense and low because they really have it. But the Celtics, they got weapon at every position. I think this is more better for him, then Utah, because all detention won't be on him. Defenses can't circle in on just him in even when he was still able to produce. Yeah. So I don't remember many highlights and having Utah because he was running back far. He's on a player. You gotta play Houston leading. Getting. Good series against the clippers. He was a flashy, but he got the job will also hit a go, go series against the clippers Chris Ball, Joe Ingles. That we went back for the Utah Jazz. Jesse help with together. See, I put that together. So new. I just say that because you just won't. That's a bit Gimmie. If he can beat a like that entity, double the bench, keep the three, keep a defense honest when Ingles isn't on the floor, but let me let me another game. Another name at you from that same team Jae Crowder love, Jack, Robin, I know you picked him for an award this year. I think it's man. Yeah. He picked the man my pick for the jazz Ricky Rubio I the same. Ricky called He was called. right. Right? Can he do. Even better just someone nears. So they would love to see him topic because the way he would do that, it's just grows beer longer. Because he can. He can have a better year Donovan Mitchell a season. It's not a rookie anymore. Joe Ingles as confident as he has ever been. GPO PG losses, man. Stats healthy, you still get fade with he's back. Yup. Crowder for a full year. Tablas veloce. Airbags nineties Higa buffer lead the league in a who. Who Ricky Rubio here. I doubt it because Mitchell bring the ball. This is a system, but he ear. It's a lot for him to be the in have an better. You gotta make shots and being confident in his game, which I think we saw because the last season in Minnesota, they would want him. So I think that was evident that they last couple seasons. I don't think you want to play for them. I don't know of a lot of people do like a lot of people don't. I don't. I don't. Maybe he didn't, but I know whenever you're playing for somebody that you feel you feel like you, they don't like you some that could be, do you want to know? So I'm looking at your notes and there's a team with no name next to look at my notes. That team name next to. I know. Chicago, booze. Yeah, you're right. I don't. I really don't. I just don't. Brush my teeth in the person that came was living. And this is because the Chicago Bulls have a nice scene. They will do their youth with. They don't have a guy..
"gordon hayward" Discussed on Pardon My Take
"On today's part of my take, we have Celtics forward. Would you say superstar? Absolutely. Yeah, absolutely. Superstar sales superstar Gordon, Hayward. They're okay. Awesome. Interview with Gordon Hayward. We went up to Boston when they were when punk was going on last week, we interviewed Gordon Hayward. It was a lot of fun, really cool guy. We also have a very special not return about Rushmore, but something similar that you're gonna really like hot cool thrown and because it is Wednesday guys on chicks PF t you have something you want to tell us before we get started. Please also respect. My let's go. So if you'd let me back. They don't cook your love. You. I'm going to be the bigger man and rise above it. I to talk to you guys about velveeta. That's right via creamy shows so so good. And you know what? It's raining outside, whether starting to turn to fall, you know time it is it's time for some MAC and cheese. It's MAC and cheese season presumptuous of view to think that everyone is listening to this in New York City at four o'clock on Tuesday. Well, everybody is listening to this in the fall, and you know what happens to the fall gets a little nippy outside. Nothing like a little velveeta shells in liquid gold cheese to help you shake the blues of autumn. You know what? If you're an SEC fan or any college football fan realize, but especially SEC it can be draining. The game day ritual starts early. Got tailgates that get kicked off in the morning. You stand around, you make your voices heard from the stands through every minute of the game. The weather's either scorching and humid or it's cold and rainy and watching a bar or friends can be Justice intense, and you know what, after a long day of being college football and. SEC fan. You want nothing more than your couch into indulge, nothing, but the good stuff. You know what? Velveeta shells and cheese has that no other pasta company does.

"gordon hayward" Discussed on First Things First
"Three levels at the rim, mid range. And from three point range, I I'm very interested to see how the Celtics juggle their rotation of forwards because they have something of embarrassment of riches there. And I'm curious to see how he and Kyrie played together. That's the only real question Mark to me about Boston next year is we've never seen he and Kyrie play together, and those shots have to come from somewhere like kyri takes last year eighteen game. The two young kids took ten and eleven game who who's giving up shots get Gordon Hayward, his career average about fifteen a game, but you're adding an all star caliber player. And so he's wildly important if if folks are right that the Celtics actually not only your favorites in the east but could compete with the warriors, then that means Gordon Hayward is gonna be full, go from the very beginning. Yeah, I'm looking forward to watch him play because I think people over a short period time, they forget who players are Boston their roster, the way we saw them playing against Cleveland in the Eastern Conference final with. Route Gordon without kyri. I mean, who is Gordon Hayward? If he had played last season ended averaged in double figures. Anything over ten points been seven straight season in the NBA after his first season as a high draft pick from Butler average in five point. So there's only been a few players that have had that type of steady growth. I think he's one of thirteen players that have seen scoring average over the first seven seasons increase. So he is a special player, but he's not a high volume shooter. The most shots he's ever taken a little short of sixteen shots you ever taken in a game that was in the last year in Utah. So for me, coming from Butler, the head coach of the Celtics is from Butler. I believe he's a system player. Also believe that late in games he does were heat. He's not an all-star, but he's a marginal, like all star player that he can get you buckets. He can get you calls at the end of the game, and you need forwards wing guys to build a defense. I believe he's going to be. Just the different version of Al Horford what he did form last year Bill score from all three different levels. He's got a Bill to improve his three point shot because that's going to open up the court and really helped the Celtics, but he's going to have to. He's going to have to surrender some minutes and some time with Tatum and Jalen Brown. And I'm so I'm not worried about his health. I believe he's a good player and because he already has it max deal, he don't have anything to prove. So I liked the fact, and I believe he is a difference maker and was gonna make the Celtics specialty. What about what Nick product just sharing the spotlight, the minutes, the time possessions with career Ving. It's not necessarily the spotlight because Gordon is not that type of player is career. High is averaging fifteen point. So it's not like change shots, fifteen shots and what sixteen points? Well, his last year he jumped it up. He's at twenty two last year new. So the thing about Gordon Hayward is he is a rope, lift. He stays true to form the way he was Butler and at Utah he should be able to fit in and he. He's already got the max contract, so he's trying to win championships is the perfect fit for him. I'm not worried about Gordon's mentality at all, especially because coming off that injury, I guys tend to feel as grateful the wrong word, but but appreciative to be back playing the game. And I don't think the minutes going to be brought me. You got ninety six minutes a game to play your to forward spots. Brown Tatum in Hayward. Can all play thirty to around thirty two minutes game and maybe a little more. If you're gonna go small, I just want it. Somebody's going to sacrifice shots, and I wanna know who it is because I'm the Celtics Tatum last year, took ten a game. I don't want him shooting fewer than that. Jaylen Brown took eleven game. I don't want him shooting fewer than that. Our was incredibly efficient and his. I think thirteen game show show again this field goal temps.

"With you actually just tell i feel i hear you real serious question though who do you think more important for them next year gordon hayward or jason tatum for them to hit their ceiling i think it would be tatum and tatum if he really does take a couple of steps forward next year at becomes like a twenty point a game score who's reliably there every single night which he was this season but if he can do that then that gives them kind of like a third star alongside hayward who i'm kind of looking at as more of a known quantity who's gonna come in and be awesome and not be awesome enough to counter a guy like katy but is going to be really good and keep them at like a sixty wind pace all year okay let me rephrase who do you think's gonna make the all star team or like the all nba team would it be hayward or tatum or both hayward pay would be my pick i think he's he's gonna have obscenely goodyear next year and then when we do this podcast next july we will talk about how hayward is now overrated because celtics nation will be talking about him as a top seven guy that's going to be the worst part of the conference imbalance that we mentioned earlier is the great inflation that we have to apply to all these celtics guys it's gonna be really good like five all stars where we go to change the allstar formatted just take the best twenty four guys overall regardless of conference because otherwise it was gonna be like nine celtics on the eastern carpets all star team it's gas so bad that would be my thing i we can like completely revamp the allstar format we don't need to upend the playoffs just yet but we'll see sticking with utah stavros says is grayson allen the new christian leitner please discuss and then morgan says hey guys as i'm sending you this jabari parker is still unsigned don't you think the jazz should take a swing i'll start with grayson allen he's another guy that i kind of secretly like and i've already praised the celtics enough on this podcast i feel even worse praising grayson allen as a lifelong carolina fan but i do think he's going to be pretty valuable and was a good steal for the jazz guitar he'll card is pulled officially we we had so like ago called you out for liking every single do player it was like ingram and right down the list right now you're doing grayson allen on top of that you're you are i just he's objectively going to be helpful and by the way we had somebody else call me out for ignoring justin jackson and his role in the king's future i did that out of love for justin jackson because i think that he had a very shaky year in sacramento last season and i was not trying to draw attention to it but i'm still hopeful for him hopefully he bounced back to the color wheel called and they have revoked your privileges for baby blue so you're out there also think like grayson allen to me he is sort of like meta nuclear war i mean i think if there's any would who is the most likely to start a legit fight in the nba next year like a fight again i don't you know manchu peaceloving man west coast guy i don't like to see real punches thrown if there's a fight next year i would bet a real fight i would bad that he is the one who launched it and he will be smirking in the back assuming he doesn't wind up on the wrong end of a haymaker he will be smirking in the back once it's all over with bodies strewn everywhere so i think that the comparison to leitner there's elements of that but i also think that there's just an ability to take things too far to not just be sort of like when i've you late near it's like annoying as a concept i've you grayson much more that meta world peace category of just like constant your attend to the point that like eventually he just makes you snap no matter what right it is more tangible with him and it's almost compulsive like i have to like he got into it with trae young at the start of things and i i wonder whether he's doing it consciously or not because he does he's like a habitual line stepper.

"I think i was actually here the night that gordon hayward went down and at that point me and i think a lot of other people that thought they knew basketball said well that's it the celtics aren't going anywhere house surprised are you that boston is where they are as they start the day today comparison to the beginning of the season i'm still not that surprise because they've had bad gordon hayward for a total of six minutes this year and they still look very good i mean they got off to that great start they once sixteen in role there were twenty two and four this year without poor care twenty two and three i guess technically disabled plan the opener but they got up to that great start everybody's like all right this is still legitimately talented team when irving went down that's what i thought you know this is this is a team that's won for this playoff late march is before a sacramento game that was when terry rosier ended up scoring thirty three against the king got hurt people like oh good zero zero can play but that was against sacramento who cares i think that's when i started to think well there's no way i was thinking you to wait in the first round i thought that was going to be the quote unquote upset in a seven two series is i didn't think firepower really a whole lot of time to acclimate without kyrie irving and that stretch so i think what the injury happened that's what i was questioning the heart of this team the talent of this team overall i mean listen i saw team last year i knew jaylen brown was really good player big minutes against cleveland i do roles year was a talented guy al horford perennial all star that's why i.
