"Which opponent when I played a in the first time he had he brought definitely schooled me a couple couple of ways. Khris Middleton was the first guy to save that messed me up at the next game. I thought I did well against him but Chris Mills him for sure and then LeBron LeBron because LeBron and next you know, he made a pass white LeBron. That's a guy in La. Yes that some guy no way. I don't know. Yeah so next to you know, where he's in a quarter and he made a pass at Kyle kuzma. I remember it to this day where he was getting double-teamed cuz he just spent on the Baseline there. They got the base. I was right to his side. He made a right-handed like footpaths across the court at full pace and not directly in his pocket and I was like, okay that's how you know, his ability is just there. I would not I don't know if anyone else can make that past with the distress that was there as well as the amount of time on a clock like Club. One of your like oh my goodness. Those are probably the three outs say say have me like on a wow moments and one more question for me. For sure for the record. How tall are you home for the record? I am six six in my opinion people can say six seven do two shoes. But six six is the is the height that I would probably go with just because it's the honest height just keeping that in mind people when they put them up the guard Joel embiid. Yes and which they do I've got I've got it down everything from six 3 to like six eight. I'm like, where is this Heist coming from but for you? All right, so we got the height. I want to know the verts good. What's the verb the vert beer? You know, it's a smooth smooth 52. That's something that I jump out to gyms where people tell me God. Oh, no, I got compared to Jordan ones that Sky across there but since I haven't I haven't done vertical in forever, but let's just say it's not as high as you may think but I definitely blocked shots so it works out that's that's I just say let's just let's go with that. Yeah standing reach you got you here long will give you any will give me links. Yeah, we'll give me will give me links and ability to change the shot. No doubt. No doubt. All right, let's go a couple of things. Let's start with Gordon. Let's start with Gordon and and how much his loss will affect this team going forward and how how long will well Gordon's a great person even better player and we're definitely miss him as in terms of karate. He brings brings nice little off-beat personality where it's like he's not super talkative, but he's not quiet and then you respect what he says. He's like deep voice and so we'll definitely miss that we're definitely off. Place values a guy that led the second unit. He was a guy even the first, you know, when he was when he was going. So we're going to miss him but I think that it creates opportunities for a lot of guys on his team to walk step up and perform and show I guess what they what they can and and and open up opportunities for myself Romeo the new new guys as well as bearing Nesmith and those guys and maybe expand Smith a little bit as well. So I think we're in a good spot..

"They trailed by double digits three times in the second half of those games. They don't get rattled. They don't overreact. They just keep playing. And those two layups. I'm not given any credit to Miami defense. It's not like they were contested. A band was flying at him. They just stone missed too easy. Layups Bio. It's the first of two the first foul on Gordon Hayward, by the way, Rachel Nichols reported. Earlier in the first half our colleague over on the TV side with their fourth child soon do We assume that Gordon was going to go home for the birth, But they said they had the unexpected family time when Jordan was rehabbing his ankle second free throw good, So the current plan is for Gordon Hayward to stay here in the bubble with the Celtics in the conference finals. 80 to 67 Celtics. Still a 15 point lead 2.5 to go in the third, Hayward passed to the baseline out of the wing. It goes toe Walker Kemble with nine against Kendrick. Nunn pulls for three no around the rim and added by allies the board. Williams doesn't seem to know where he fits in the offense. He sometimes gets in the guy's way. Here's drug. It's hanging tough jumper goes and just like that Miami within 13. 2 15 on the clock. Jalen Brown passes along the baseline. Hayward left corner drives in against hero to the high post Turns looks for the duck instead will fade fire. Miss Miami got it. Two minutes left in the third quarter. Boston down 13 drag. It thought about a three goes to hero on the way. Back to Goran. Goran takes Grant Williams down deep puts it up with a turning left hand. No good, but got a foul called against him. So I wonder how much If your Boston and this gets inside of 10 and then seven how much game pressure you feel? How much the weight of the relinquish leads in Game one game to play on your minds? An enormous amount. It will be a major major factor in the game that excuse me. Yes, they could survive it, but it's going to be a heck of a lot easier if they can regroup. And keep this 10 or above. Don't let Deja vu. Lord Dragon, The 1st 81 Miami run there within 12 1. More free throw coming Made between free throws Daniel Thais back on the floor for Grant Williams. That's how concerned Brad is gonna drive. It appears to be getting untracked. 40 left in the 3rd 11 point. Celtic Lee Brown stripped of the ball didn't go office dying outta bounds. That's the ruling Miami will get it. Chance to get it under 10. Watching a replay that was defensive play didn't just lose it. Derrick Jones made a really good play knocked it down off his 5 90 seconds to go in the third. Here's drug is getting all the way baseline pass in the corner, the hero back to go run on the wing nine to shoot drug It's against Thais takes him into the lane passes out to Jones. He's the clock five gives to Gordon puts up a three no good offensive board Jones in the quarter hero with a fresh 14 Tyler on the drive double covered high off the glass gets the role Miami and single figures down. I know they scored the point, but it's the activity level that has risen the intensity the quickness to the ball. 11 1 run Kemba Walker ends it with a jumper at the free throw line. Boston Back up 11 huge in the energy offensive rebounds. What caused that last one? Seconds left in the third Olenick catch and shoot three of Miss Long rebound tipped in the air Campbell tips into Tatum collision in half court and it's a Miami blocking foul on Goran drug. It's with 43 seconds to go here in the third. Third on drug. It's free throws coming for the Celts in Boston, a chance to try and rebuild the lead, which has gone from 19 down nine. Gordon made a bad decision there. You really didn't have the angle and he was trying to slow the fast break down, but what he's done is one of a excellent free throw shooter at the line when they're struggling to score. Jason Tatum's first free throw is good. I'm wearing an interesting color sneakers tonight was going to say, highlighter yellow, but they're kind of mustard yellow with a little bit of highlighter orange along the sides and the back. What a contrast to those classic Celtics green uniforms. Second free throw good as well. 86 73 Celtics. Couple of Really big possessions here little three quarter court pressure to take some time off the clock. Miami would love to get it to for one here 34 seconds to go in the third year over the left hand dribble inside the lane passes to the quarter stolen by Hayward turnover up ahead. Catatumbo slams with two hands and gets fouled. Kendrick Nunn was trying to chase him down from behind. That was gonna be an easy deuce. Anyway, Tatum got the two on the dung and the harm in a chance of a three point filed by Kendrick. None but what made that play? Tyler here, got caught in the air and turned it over. But Gordon Hayward got the steel never bounced. It just turned. He.

"Challenge the play because it disqualifies Lowry now with 35.4 seconds remaining. Kemba Walker with an excellent play college, Lowry got caught. He actually, he and Grant Williams were hooked up. Grant Williams caught the ball. And Lowry's arm remained on top of Grant Williams when Grant Williams went up really an easy call for the officials. I understand why Nick challenged it. Toronto pulled within two at 1 21 left, and now Grant Williams at the line to our right. First free throw No gun at worst year the Raptors will be down three with 35 seconds to go. Boston has not scored in the last three minutes. Second free throw for Williams. Mr. Trying to get the rebound is found Norman power while he went down hard to gets up, hop back up bonus free throws down on the loose ball foul. Neither of those free throws even closer on the second one was so deep went itself to a deep rebounds. Jason Tatum He's going in to get it literally by the dotted line. Norman apologised reached up and grabbed the Celtics were 52.6% is a team from the free throw line. First free throw three point lead for Boston, 90 to 87 34.9 seconds away. First point in what must seem like an eternity if you're a Boston Celtics fan, second one short rebounded by an unbelievable two stories. This free throw from Boston turnover for the Raptors and the Vanvleet drives to the right wing. Gotta buy Brown. Restore the baseline tend to shoot comes back uphill Front court right 18 seconds to go. He wants to three is not going to drive it for three rises Angle. A three d well short may have been tipped by William's rebound, Boston 87 and a foul by an Obi and so now up by three bonus free throws for the Celtics. Walker will stride the line at the end of our right hand, has a chance to perhaps punch the ticket for the Eastern Conference finals. They had enough time when they first got it to go for a quick to play. But Fred Vanvleet was his mind was made up. He was going to take a three Kemba Walker with the chance again. I'm going to stop repeating myself. He's an 80% shooter. Boston Celtics 80% from the free throw line. Normally five of us Seven from the line in the 4th 1st 1 goes, though, for Walker that takes away that one possession situation. There is a timeout available for Knick nurse to available to the Celtics. 7.9 seconds left. Campbell Walker with 13 points make it 14, the leader's five for Boston. At a time on a call with 7.9 seconds remaining. That is Toronto's last five point game. Obviously Nick nurse will draw play. They need to have something quick. Doesn't matter whether it's a tour of 33 would be nice, but it has to be quick. They've got to put the ball in the basket. Stop the clock, and then they've got a pickup full court. Both teams are in the bonus that Wass Nick Nurses last time out. Brad Stephen Celtics have two time outs available. So both teams huddle up here. The Celtics trying to get to their third conference finals in the last four seasons, they would join Golden State in that club and get set to meet the Miami Heat. In a best of 7 1920 17.

How to Do Financial Planning
"You hear someone share a logical view of disastrous things that could happen. We always have to step back and ask what other incentives. What is their business model? Do they have a newsletter that they're selling a subscription service? Are they selling books? That doesn't necessarily mean they have a conflict of interest, but we want to understand. What's their model? My model is I. Do a podcast and I have plus membership and one of the most important things that I do in that plus membership which I think, all individuals that are sharing their investment and financial views should do. Is Show their portfolio. Show me what you're holding in your portfolio. That's why this member could ask me. Why do I have so little invested in stocks which I'll get to in a few minutes? One of our challenges to figure out well. How do we potentially plan for catastrophic things that could happen, but may not and probably will not. I actually to a recent episode on the investors podcast with Luke Roman, and grant Williams. And one of the things that struck me is how frequently? They said they didn't know about specific things. They didn't know why. The dollar wasn't weakening or other events. Because we don't know. which gets to some of the shortcomings of traditional financial advisers? There are many terms for people that provide financial and investment advice, financial adviser, an inch of planner investment advisor. Is A lot of overlap? This member used the term financial adviser for the individual. He has had a relationship with for the past fifteen years. I'm not sure to what extent he's done. Financial Planning Buddies certainly has provided investment advice, which is what an investment advisor will do. Sometimes, financial planners provide investment advice. Now I am not a financial planner. I have never hired a financial planner I've managed assets for the clients of financial planners and I've spoken to many financial planners over the years and analyze the different financial planning software that they use. One of the smartest financial planners I know is a good friend of Mine Roger Whitney. He is the host of the retirement podcast retirement, answer, man and the agile financial planner podcast. Rogers spent more than twenty five years working with individuals over h fifty, helping them transition into retirement. Last December. He had extensive guest post on Michael kisses. Log Michael kisses is also a very well known financial planner. In that post, Roger contrasted traditional financial planning with what he has labeled agile financial planning. He described traditional. Financial Planning is where you ask the client to complete comprehensive questionnaires. And, then he says the visor takes the questionnaire up to the proverbial mountain, and eventually comes back down with the tablets, burdensome comprehensive plans often hundreds of pages long. And then the advisors sits down with the client for hours and reviews these binders and the recommendations and a multi step financial process. Then the client often takes these leather bound tomes as he said the plan and put it on the shelf. Check the mental box and ignore. Now obviously not all advisors do that. But that's often what happens. You Hire Advisor? They give you a plan, and then it becomes this document that sits there. He contrast that with Agile Financial Planning. True Financial Planning is no longer a product. It's a fluid. Never. Ending project focused on managing change. And the first principle is to accept uncertainty. To recognize as he writes financial planning precision does not equal more accuracy because the future is a novel. We talked about that last week. Investing is not knowing we just don't know. The basis of agile financial planning is to accept that we do not know. We're not sure what happened to markets taxes inflation. Our even our lives. And he mentioned that by accepting that frees up a lot of mental space that is focused on trying to predict accurately. What's going to happen in instead? We can focus on the new information that is coming as life unfolds and make small incremental decisions along the way. Little adjustments is how he puts it.

But I read I also read one other thing that I have to bring up before we let you go with two things your mom has always preached the importance of right now your goals. So he wrote out seven goals and one of them or I think the first one is to go to the NBA. You haven't really told the public about the other six goals that you have in place. I think my question for you is something I ask all athletes, and and people will come on the podcast is the importance of speaking things into existence having a plan and being able to escape, you know, the stresses a basketball. So my question for you is you enjoy reading since you were a kid, you know, you write your goals out. And you do all those types of things. What are you looking forward to doing a post basketball it? So you. Have a ten fifteen year career. You know, what do you want to be known for how you trying to impact the game outside of basketball to make an impact? No matter what I do. Whether it's athletically or keep on around. So I've always been an advocate if you've been back, but I've also have interest in funding things about different cultures. And maybe saying around the game. I love I love to be a coach because I good personality for it. But also, I would love to do something different investing different companies.

"Kinda shows you his mindset in the chip he has on his shoulder. He plays angry. He plays with a passion, a sense of aggression. And I'm excited to see, you know, how he fares in the NBA excited to see, you know, how a lot of those college guys will fare in the NBA look Zay. You look at Cam look at RJ, you look at grant Williams, you look at a lot of different players who have shown they have the ability and capability of, you know, contributing right away at the next level. Anybody else you have you seen any player? But typically that you said, wow. I I didn't know he had that or. That guy's really special. Have you seen that yet? Hey, there's a kid the the point guard caches was from Michigan state. I like him a lot of haven't seen him on a lot of draft boards. But I like his pace I like his leadership qualities capabilities he makes his teammates better. And he's just a dog. And I think that, you know, having watched a little bit of Virginia. They have a couple of players who can really impact the game at the offense of independent with left shooting ability. And there's a kid from Kentucky who's hurt right now, not playing I think he's very skilled, and it has some versatility. Washing. Really good you talking about this John hunter and Kyle guy and five all those guys. I mean any hundreds of lottery Jerome is a first round pick and caches Winston. I mean, we we heard Tom Izzo when you came on a couple of weeks ago talk about, you know, maybe he's not the most explosive or the highest jumper. But he like you said is great pace feel he's tough. And there's a reason why he was a first team all big ten. He's really special changing gears a little bit see for you guys. What what has been the tenor of the locker room since the the nerve injury. And what have you said to him because I know you went to see him at the hospital just kind of take us through that. Yeah. I mean, this is a very unique situation. One that you hope you never have to experience be a part of, you know, whether it is watching close or watching from afar, you never want to see in the year teammates, more specifically guys that you consider a brother go through something like that in being able to see something like that close. You know, you just feel for him you feel for his family. He worked so hard. He loves the game. You always, you know, say things like, you know, he didn't deserve that. You know what? I mean. He's a guy who does things the right way he works when his craft every day he's gotten better he's having a career year. He's you know, the man in the middle in our team who does allow for us in offensively and defensively. Initiating initiating the offense making passes finishing around the basket protecting the rim forest guard and pick and rolls. We're just a better team with him out there in his obvious based on the success..

"Now, you're never gonna shut down Barrett a Williamson, but if you can make it uncomfortable for him and Quogue off that paint. I just think that they're not I don't wanna say vulnerable, but they're certainly not at their best. And then if you pay his rendition Duke, suddenly becomes half fourteen and again, they're just not super efficient. So I it's fascinating to me that we're in this position. I think it would have been catastrophic deal for the tournament. If we would have lost. I because I don't think there's another guy look at it. Like, you know, you know, you must see TV, then maybe our guest today grant Williams I mean, and and so feel the bone like those three guys basically tournament. I don't really know. If there is that. So I'm excited that do still playing in that sense. But because he the pressure has is gonna. Continue to to increase for them as we get closer and closer to the final four knee. It's only going to get harder for them to come away with victories especially once team's begin zone. Them up. If a team gets hot on one particular night or one of the big three I'm calling the big three now, and they're in college. But if one of the big three get some foul trouble or has off shooting night. All those things could determine the fate of that do program as they get closer to date in the final four it's gonna come down to execution. It's gonna come down to whether or not the other team has impact player you look at dock ins from UCF. He was an impact player guy capable of taking a game over and he did just that. And the most interesting part of all of this was the fact that. They were in that game for its entirety. They had two chances to win on the last possession. But ultimately missed miss. What would have been the game winner? Let me ask you from a standpoint of like watching great Dr play the tournament usually lend itself to great guards. We've seen the Kimball walkers Napier's and guys like J McCollum have incredible runs in the tournament fish shifting gears a little bit. I don't know how much you polish John Moran. But at least on the highlights and some some of the Murray state games. What what did you see from him that you think this guy can be a a real superstar or a real difference maker right away? As a pro. I liked him right away. I've been watching him throughout most of the season. You know, seeing his ability to to make his teammates better seeing the explosiveness his pace his vision. And how everyone kind of response to him around him seems like a very likable guy. And I think he had a great. Showing the tournament. He showed his ability to pass he showed his ability to lead a team. He controlled the pace of the game. He scored in a multitude of ways e finished around the basket. He drew fouls hit threes in that final game against Florida state in. Although the team was overmatched. They had a lot of land in they made it difficult for him. He dominated at first half end, basically scored twenty eight of his team, sixty points, whatever they ended up within kind show in what he could do in open floor would he could do it in a pick and roll and how he can really really adjust his game to the NBA in flourish. I I love to get. I think it upside is the roof. I think war is really high because ability to get downhill you, correct me if I'm wrong, but his ability to get downhill pick and roll run a team. He's a great passer, either Willie bachelor, he has a really special feel forgot it has not played on a basketball should more. Any plays with chip on his shoulder. You plays like a guy that I like you that wasn't recruited by all the big schools. And and just has that extra that you need to be a great pro is is all that fair. Yeah. That's definitely fair. I think the fact that he played in South Carolina small city was teammates with Diana wasn't recruited by the big schools..

"You know, what you're actually doing pretty well this column for one I really trusted by God with conducted though. I'm I'm going to everything revolves around that my preseason big. But, you know, do is unhappy you brought that up because I think people are finally seeing that as talented as Duke is, and they are incredibly talented. You know, this team has not played at best basketball down the stretch Zion was hurt and they're just not a great opposite team. I mean, they can score in bunches because they have great one on one player than athlete, but they don't shoot the three well at all can been the bottom of the ANC all league are all year, including threes. And I think when you see them defensively. You know, they made some mistakes against UCF. No UCF. Give them a log credit. Taco was really good. I thought he played great Taylor was terrific and redocking appro. I mean, I give them a ton of credit. But but I just thought do from a protein that we were expecting to be this juggernaut that we certainly seen from them. I just didn't think they play. Well, and they really haven't played all that. While the last month. I don't think they played particularly well either I think they're stars showed up obviously Zaia at a big bucket down the stretch misses the free throw allows Jay Barrett. The other since ational freshman to come up with the rebound in put them up by one. But if you look at the way UCF controlled the game at the way, the guarded the Duke offense allowing some of those guards just have wide open shots more. Specifically that clip that went viral on the player from UCF waving his hand. At the Dugard's insisting on them shooting it as they turned down. Jumper after jumper from the top of the key. I think that the blueprint is kind of out on how to guard the other players outside of RJ bear camera Shinsei on obviously, the players are talented, but they lack some of the essential skill sets needed to to be dominated on the perimeter shooting threes and being able to jump shots as is crucial especially in incidently tournament when it's more about a half court offense and being able to score in in crunch pressure situations. So you're out you about that is because I agree with you. I think you saw blueprint from a team, and yeah that clearly an oddity Johnny Dawkins being able so long really knew how to guard them. But that idea of loading up on Diane loading up on Barrett. And you'll even read it the only thirty three percent on the year from three Barrett. Thirty one Williamson thirty three and trade. Twenty three. So the idea that you can load up on Barrett and Williamson and force radish and Jones beat you. Those guys are really talented. But I think that's the best chance you have to try and beat Duke..

They got it figured out grant Williams made plays and they got it done. And they play you like Purdue he liked Tennessee. You go with the Boilermakers on picked Tennessee, my BRAC, and you still just staying with my brand. I am really impressed with I really impressive. What about the top? Hafer Jinyan, Oregon, Oregon alone sleep with alone, the double digits to get into the Sweet Sixteen coach, I've got Virginia. I think Virginia exercise that demon. I think Virginia DC Keith as plan really, really. He bit. Yeah. I mean, you're talking to guys Markley Hollywood take anything at this point. Hey, guys, have great hair. And then they mess with it. Just as more accentuated. What? His him blocking shots. I'm catching lobs and Dunkin, and that's just what the is is. He is different. It's just in like cow guys been okay, drums, sometimes disappears dry. I don't think Drome has to score Jerome scores. When you need him to the Andre hunters the guy when the guy when a game gets tough unless guys have one of those nights. Like, yes. Some one of those nights where ball hits his hands. And it's off. How does the guy that's got to go win games from at the end again? I think this I think from an Oregon standpoint Wooten, we talked about right? I mean, he look don't the one thing that Oregon. I think can do I think I think they can speed it up a little bit. And that may be that may sound dumb 'cause they play that soft pressure to slow you down on. Yeah. And and I'm watching them. And I'm thinking, you know, what if I'm playing against Virginia. I I want at least get it going to little bit. And I know that it opens it up maybe for cow guy or or that kind of stuff. But man when you got a big guy near that block shots like Wooton does. And you got a kid like Pritchard that can make shots. I just think you gotta you gotta get some easy bucket somewhere. Like you cannot grind every stinking possession. So of Oregon could get it down drag it shoot a little I just. I don't like Oregon in this game. But I am not totally in love with Virginia. I just think that you can guard those two guards see I think Oregon is going to continue to do that soft pressure. So that they only have to guard mover Blau all that stuff for junior. Does. Yes will Virginia in a shorter clock is ticking. Only have by the time. They advance over half court. A little bit of short clock. And they get them out of rhythm offensively where they can't move your side aside, and then maybe some long rebounds and get out and purchased. Good at he. Yeah. I news go would you be mad if Prichard at twenty shots, and again, no, in fact, when I say move he made he made that one deep. Oh, it was from the parking lot just saying you you gotta make shots against them and was shot. Ready yen. You can whip it. And you just can't I don't know more. I watch them more. You just can't try to grind every possess. I like to soft pressure, but I like getting out against them to keep it ball, reverse you both like with this. He's whiny on it.

In our Westwood One studios in New York City along with ESPN college basketball analyst Fran for Sheila. Fran. We talked earlier today about Admiral Scofield, not liking Iowa grew up in Chicago. They didn't recruit him his brother O'Brien played football. Wisconsin. He's like. Anyway, he's taking it out on seventeen points in the first half while he was an officer. But he certainly wasn't a gentleman that defense and. On those. But you know, what he's got seventeen. But I love the balance and the ball Bouma to this team. I was trying to throw these defenses atom keeping them out of transition. They're not doing that. And great ball movement by this team grant Williams got seven as well. They're making nearly fifty percent of their three. So the balance is good, but Admiral Scofield, you are right. He is a man possessed right now. And he just a good player because he can make threes, and he can muscle you inside. If it gets close. He's got two fouls. Grant Williams has two fouls. But at the moment, it's not close forty nine twenty at Tennessee at the half. All right. The next game in Columbus. Another team that wants to get up and down the floor that North Carolina against a Washington team that has grinded teams out defensively but played really well on offense against Utah state to get to the second round for the first time since two thousand eleven Washington in that game.

Now, I was doing a much better job of getting back. They were crashing the board picked up four early offensive rebounds. But that was affecting their ability to get back in transition defense getting back. Tennessee is finding grant Williams outstanding vision defined Bowden on the backside cut to the basket. He actually through that over two defenders rebounded a nice job of catching that in traffic and finishing with the contact.

Grant Williams, definitely making his presence felt both ends of the four well in back to the game on Friday. Colgate took the ball out of his hands. He had nine points. But only six shots.

It's a foul called three seconds. Yeah. The three second call was made. And then the officials are talking Tyler cook is down in the paint. It's either going to be a foul grant Williams or three second call. I the three second call was coming up. I thought he indicated a three second call. But now the officials are getting together to decide on what the players. Well, Tim Clark early definitely weighed the free second violation. That was the first indication now they're going to go back and check the review, but this is what I saw and I've already seen a quick review. Cook was trying to guard grant Williams. Cook tried to push Greg Williams out of the pain and then instead of doing it with an arm bar meeting arm, bent forearm in the back of grant Williams. He tried to do it with the body, which was a big mistake. And then about the third time that he bumped him. He fell down. Now, I'm not sure what the officials are gonna call. They're looking for excessive contact, but I don't know if it's because of the way that cook hit Williams, but he felt like a deck of cards. I think there was anything there. Eight a call a foul thought as you pointed out called three seconds. But now they're at the monitor talking about they're probably going to stick with the original coal and call it a three second violation against grant Williams. That's exactly what the call list.

"There's a lot of ways to go about this game. But I think the the the best way to put it is. This was a game where Kentucky just. I thought really from the outset. Completely controlled the basketball game. I think they only were down once and it was at the very beginning. Even in the first half when the lead sort of fluctuated between four and eight I thought Kentucky was out playing Tennessee. They just were not. They miss them free throws and the and they get grant Williams hit two threes. I think he'd only hit eight all year, and he hit hit hit three tonight. But they still were playing great. And then in the second half, especially coming out of halftime, just absolute domination and. There's a lot. There's a lot of ways to go about it. But I think the biggest thing is they just completely dominated on the defensive end. And turn that into great offense. I mean, Kentucky one without necessarily doing some of the things that I thought they were going to have to do to win. I thought for Kentucky to win this game. They were going to have to shoot. Outstanding from three point shot five thirteen. Five for thirteen. Okay. But it's not what I thought they were going to have to do. I thought they were going to have to probably make eight or nine threes. They made five. They won because they completely out physical a very physical team. I had said for a long time that I thought this Tennessee team was the most physical SCC team. I'd seen since I don't even know where I mean, they beat you up and Kentucky completely beat them up tonight. PJ washington. Obviously was amazing. He had twenty three points nine of twelve field goals. He was just excellent throughout the game. He scored he was unstoppable on the post with his back to the basket. And in the first half he played as well in the first half as I've seen him play ever. And then in the second half re Travis completely dominated the post. I think he scored eight straight points. And he really just physically he was brought here to guard grant Williams, and he did and gray had sixteen points. But when he had sixteen points and ten of them where you're threes are at the line. You did your job. And I thought he played excellent tower hero with terrier, thirteen rebounds. Look he goes three for eleven from the field. And it's still extremely valuable because he gets thirteen rebound. That's all you can ask for he's you know. It's funny about him. Is he still hasn't really shot the ball like we thought he would. But he's been more valuable than I thought he was going to be if you had told me that he would not shoot the ball. Well all year. I would have thought by the end of the year, you might not be playing and now he's more valuable than I would have believe even though he shot worse Ashton. Hagans was great play thirty six minutes. He had. Seven assists. He controlled the game. He he he struggled a little bit early. I thought on defense. I thought Jordan bone was kind of work and even Jordan bone did have nineteen points. But after the first few minutes Ashton settled down, and then he really controlled tempo. We slow Jordan bone down in Tennessee. So good in transition, and they only scored two baskets in transition the whole game. So I thought Kentucky was absolutely great. Kelvin Johnson for about three or four minutes. Got reparation as loud as it's been in a decade when he was hitting all those threes. It was just a special night for people who were at the game. I think you would agree. It's the loudest rubs been in a long time. I mean, we everybody has their game. They think was the loudest. But whatever game you pick. This is the latest one in a long long time for me. And what made it exciting is that for at least the first thirty minutes. The fans were loud the whole time. It wasn't just when they were good place. It was constant. And that is when rob is really at it's best just a special night. And you throw in Hami Diyala won the dunk contest with a dunk that everybody will remember for a long time Dunkin over Shaquille O'Neal, and then putting his elbow on the rim. It was this is a cool evening and for Kentucky. They now are still alive in the SEC still for a number one seed, and they look like a team that could win the whole thing.

"Road versus Vanderbilt down by six with less than ninety seconds to play. Vanderbilt had not won an SEC game. Ben grant Williams had enough of that Tennessee where the ball in front court thirty seven seconds to go pass, aloe. Grant Williams baseline goes to the bathroom. Foul. Waves. Over pay puts Tennessee in front on the baseline with a spin move. Eighty three eighty two and grant Williams with a chance for a three point play. Grant Williams has forty points in this game vowed network. I am with the call. He wanted with forty three points, including twenty three or twenty three for the free throw line as Tennessee called it a comeback. Even though they have not been here for years. They went overtime over Vanderbilt. Eight hundred eighty three let's bring in our man played in college basketball. He now does a great job on ESPN. College basketball analyst joining us on Freddie and Fitz Simons Dale in for a lot of people. This may be the first time they've seen Tennessee and Vanderbilt gave all they could handle for those who don't know their number one. But how good are they? To be back with he was always in their championship level team. No doubt number one reason. And they have and people maybe they tuned in. It's all great Williams. Wait, you didn't realize that? He was the FCC player of the year last year. And he he was outstanding in this game. Now, I will have to say though, it was seventy six seventy Vanderbilt was up. They missed the shot. And there was a new rule this year called the hook and hold and people. Remember last year is a cough. The big guy for Purdue in the tournament. A guy put him on a rebound now becomes an automatic flagrant one. He'd be hooked up last year. He got thrown to the ground Haas broke his elbow was out for the rest of the tournament. Totally effected Purdue NCA reacted by instituting this rule the hook and hold is now flagrant one. If you see it. They went to the monitor and they gave them a flavor. One Williams makes both free throws. They score up an inbound dunk an OB under dunk, which Vanderbilt's complicit their own demise in certain regards, but grant dunk there puts them down to four point play. When it looked like that game was about to be so bad that was the most pivotal part of this game. But grant Williams was absolutely excellent forty three points, and as you mentioned twenty three or twenty two from the line. My pops who played at Duquesne drafted by the Knicks always talk about. Talking and sayings was one of his favorite things always gave sayings, but bow shots win ballgames was just a constant thing. He said and twenty nine to thirty to ninety one percent for Tennessee. Sixty one percent thirteen to twenty one for Vanderbilt. Best game one loss to the free throw line amongst a few other places describe just an empty, Jim. To hit twenty three straight from the free throw line. Forget against a rival on the road, and you go twenty three of twenty three from the stripe. Just explain to fans how impressive that is. Well, let's be honest. I one thing I could do shoot free throws. So. Made about forty straight the other night just just just shooting the ball. That I can do. I can't really move. I wasn't that great of an athlete. I know I can flick it so that wasn't really hard. But to your point though on the road when you have to make them in a bear mind Bandra played Matt odd. Jim, you know, it's a performance center. It doesn't look like anything you've seen. So I when athletes are creatures of habit, and we become obsessed with seeing things in a certain way when things are put in a different context. It could mess with you mess with grant. Because of the game will line to go twenty three of twenty three and make every single one when your team needed every single one is an amazingly impressive and those flagrant. I talked about when they clear that lane out for you. That is weird that feels weird again anytime there's a change of setting or scenery for an athlete it's different than than normal habit. It can throw you guys will save time. It feels different. Nobody's gonna line. Didn't matter to him. He stepped up in stroke them, both his performance in this game was outstanding. There were times late in the game where he didn't touch the ball which is an egregious error by Tennessee. If anybody shot with touching the ball in the last five minutes of the game or in overtime. I'm sure Barnes will remind them of where they. Where they sit. This team is five guys at average double digits. They have guys that can score make plays. But in this game he had to touch the ball on every single possession. They played through him. And when they didn't that was that was a mistake grace of ESPN college basketball analyst joining us on Freddie and Fitz on ESPN radio staying in the SEC. We know the SEC is vastly improved. We saw last night South Carolina getting upset win over Auburn. They've lost two in a row, but Kentucky is coming on strong. How dangerous can this team? Be. When it seems like they're finding this dried. I think they're heading into being a final four level team, and it's happening faster than I thought it was going to happen. Just in terms of where they were not not the shellacking. They took against Duke in in November that wasn't they weren't that bad. But they still had some serious deficiencies, and they were having issues really they had a little addition by subtraction situation quality green who was one of their point guards decided to transfer right around the new year right around Christmas, and that that actually helped them because then I moved ashen Higgins into the lineup. Who was the guy that reclassified this past year was one of the top recruits in the nation comes into Kentucky young kid, obviously, like many others there. But he's keys come into his own. And he he defensively leap defender, and he puts pressure on from the point of attack. And that helps their defense cascades down allows them to get out in transition where this Kentucky team is a great other freshmen have played really well Tyler hero. They run him off a ton of screens off the ball a lot of pin down screens in the block. He's the guy that can shoot it from three. But also when he curls into that lane can can facilitate for others and be real dangerous. Kelvin Johnson will be a lottery pick next year. I think this kid I mean cal- does it run a single play for Kelvin Johnson guy? Get seventeen points a game. He he can shoot it. He's got an amazing motor great length. Great athlete. He he's got that MBA tie bodies. He develops his three outside the NBA range. But I mean, the he he's been great and that game against Auburn as you mentioned both those guys had twenty and carried them in the second half you couple that with some guys like PJ Washington the sophomore who's a very versatile guy that had a bit of a roller coaster year. But he can show up at times re Travis a former Pac twelve former Pac twelve all Pac twelve player for Stanford. He grad transfer over. He's a grown, man. He's a grown man in the post at twenty three years old. They can bang and be physical. So this team has improved offensively Hagans has helped ignite that the freshman have come out faster next off they would and they are moving their way into being a final four level team. They do play Tennessee twice this year, which doesn't always work out like that in the SEC. But obviously, I think I think we being ESPN if some saying that when they're when they're both teams you're gonna play twice. They play they played twice here. Coming up in the February sixteenth. I think their first game at tennis at at Kentucky. I believe but that'll be great. We have another one early March Zion. Williamson has has developed a cult following and let you declare myself president of this cultish type. He's a remarkable athlete and when hell of a basketball player when you watch him play what stands out to you. What impresses you the most for a freshman? His his his movement and his feet for his size. Other things have impressed me p before this. Like, let me just say that I didn't think he was going to be this good before the season. I'd seen the dunks. And hadn't seen him live. I seen some film. And I just thought you can't just drive and dunk on everybody, especially the competition is playing with some of these things these this isn't going to be like that in college at the highest level but from day one when he played Kentucky. I was so impressed with his skill set is ability to Nick knock-down jump shots facilitate off-balance his vision. I mean, he the kids got it all in his athleticism is remarkable. But I think his feet and his balanced for size are really unique. He's got. It reminds me of like Jerome Bettis running back for the Steelers. I'm back in the mid two thousand hall of Famer a fantastic running back, but he called the bus three hundred pounds. But he had these twinkle toes and even dance through the line, accelerating decelerating change direction and do all this stuff that you just didn't see a dude that's is do, and that's what Diane does when he gets in the lane and traffic is ability to move his feet and his body and glide it's so effortless while hailing the ball at a high level is really remarkable. I it is impressive. Lastly, his motor guys that are that physically gifted a lotta times have the work that hard to to get it done. He works hard. And he's amazingly efficient it just everything about his game has impressed me. But really speed ability to move at that size of the most unique thing about VSBN college basketball analyst with the infant Simmons. And Freddie, Coleman ESPN radio's Freddie and Fitz. Simons realistically how many teams realistically can make a run and win the title this year. I think we have more than we've had in years past. I think they're six thirty absolute lock. And I'll give you those. It's virginia. Let's let's Rican. Forget about the one sixteen game last year. What's going to happen again? This team's a different team, but Virginia Duke, Michigan state, Gonzaga, Tennessee, Michigan to those are my six that are that are that are there already, and they will be there in the end. I will add in North Carolina. I think keeps teasing us we keep seeing flashes. But also see if they don't make shots. They can really struggle. We started Louisville. I think it was two weekends ago. Just got boat raced. When things get tough you have to win some tough games in some ugly games. Like Tennessee did tonight. I question I with North Carolina. But they have the talent they had the shot makers. They had the experience with Luke maye, and Kenny Williams and guys that have been there before Cameron Johnson. I talk about Kentucky, I think he can work their way into that conversation too. Kansas without you is a bouquet. Yeah. I don't think they're gonna get there. There's no I don't think they they don't have the offensive firepower any experienced guard spots in particular. I mean when they were when they play four guards last couple of years, which is outside of Bill self normal desire to play they've had guy. They've had pros. They player of the year. Frank most Mason, they had Demonte Graham all American he had seen Mikhail Luke NBA player you had guys that could play at a high level of guard, no knocking devan Dotson or Clinton Grimes, but they're freshman. They're figuring out doctrines lightning fast. But he can be up and down Grimes went through brutal shooting slump in the middle of the year. Marcus Garrett has come on as of late, but he's not an elite offensive player. It's it's just everything's a little bit harder Dietrich loss enough and all American all American for Kansas. And he's been excellent. They played through him. They have to play through him. But without as a bouquet everything becomes harder. And I don't think they're going to get there. So I think we have eight teams that can win a championship. If Auburn gets completely healthy could be nine. We'll see. But that's more than I've said and any of the recent years, I've always thought there were three or. Or four. So this is I think going to be one of the most fun and interesting NCAA tournaments because there's got to be just a lot of different teams that can that can go from cuts down real quick before. We let you go when you're gonna play pick up with us on campus. I told you this last time, I am retired. Now, if you wanna play some horse, you wanna just shoot. No, thank you. I'm not losing that battle. If you think I'm gonna get a defensive stance, Freddie. You must have lost your mind. All right.
