NBA Mock Draft 3.0

"And we are back talking two thousand twenty mock draft three point o our last mock draft of the year. It's draft day draft morning. What better to unwrap and a mock draft on draft morning. it's the second round. Now now's the time to confess. I'm really terrible at projecting second rounds like you know my hit rate and some drafts has been like one two three picks in the second round. It's it's so hard to keep track of the first round the wheels to sort of come off and these picks happened like every two minutes. I it's hard to really keep track. I did my best. I project where. I think particular players can go. You definitely don't really get deep into this when you're talking the nba scouts in executives about what they're going to do in the second round. They're still trying to figure out the first round as well. So i've tried to find some fits there so this is reported more chad ford speculation. Here about what's happening. The second round starts with the dallas mavericks this pick via the warriors taking malachi. Flynn the san diego state. Junior point guard One of the guys that frankly could go ten spots higher in the draft. I actually really love malachi flynn. There's kind of a lot of point guards kind of later in the first round which may push him out a little bit. But i actually think he's the guy who could step in play right away. I would actually love him in dallas. I think that'd be great. Pick for dallas at thirty one at thirty two. The charlotte hornets are on the board. They're getting this pick via the cavs. Paul read the sophomore forward center out of depaul. Have them going thirty two. This is john. Hollinger's been super high on all year. I think he's another guy who can guard positions on the floor. I really like him. Actually think he brings some stuff offensively as well. I personally like him. Better than precious. I'm right now. Could turn out to be a terrible take. But it's kind of what i think and i definitely think he could be an excellent fit. I'm in charlotte. Especially if they end up with lamelo ball and they're gonna need to add a defensive big man. As part of that package at thirty-three the minnesota timberwolves around the board. This'll be the third pick because they have to. First round picks. Tillman the junior power forward at michigan state. Everybody loves this kid. He's he's one of these guys like high floor. Low ceiling. just does his work every day. Great rebound or plays hard. I'm ken defend going. Bring be a great locker room guy is gonna find some rotation that somewhere I like him in minnesota on a team. That is trying to go forward. I think he actually adds a bit of a veteran presence to the locker room. At thirty four the philadelphia seventy sixers are on the clock. That get this. Pick via the hawks. Isaiah joe the arkansas shooting guard who is one of the best shooters in this draft. Crazy range. High volume of three point shots philadelphia. Always in need shooters. When you're going to be playing. Ben simmons on this team he certainly constructs the floor. And i'd like isaiah joe there them at thirty five the sacramento kings Via the pistons. Dan dotson to kansas sophomore guard. Who is one of the quickest players in the draft. He's an elite score excels off the getting to the basket not a great shooter a bit undersized for his position not really a point guard that's why he slides a few spots higher but could be instant offense off the bench for sacrimento at thirty five at thirty six the philadelphia seventy sixers back on the clock this time via that pick from the mix jordan aura the louisville junior who also is one of the better shooters in this draft. He has good size vers position. Good length i'm not sure exactly what else he brings to the table besides shooting but again i'm just loading philly up i with shooters at the moment at thirty seven. The washington wizards are on the board. They get this pick via the chicago. Bulls tyler bay the junior ford out of colorado who is one of the best athletes in the strath super explosive. Really hard worker on the defensive end still just kinda coming along on the offensive. And then i think that's been a concern. He's he's one of those guys that might be a little bit of a twitter. Not sure exactly what position he plays in the pros that causes him to slide. A few picks in this draft think this is still really value. and by the way when. We're talking about a lot of these guys dotson. Tillman for example malachi flan. These guys could all end up in the first round as well. Just have them the second thirty eight new york knicks via the hornets janis ramsey. The texas tech freshman guard again volume score can shoot it a little bit We're just loading the knicks up now with backward guys that can score the basketball. I'm not sure who's going to defend in new york. But he's an intriguing prospect. He's only nineteen years old. And i certainly there's upside there with the thirtieth pick in the draft at thirty nine the new orleans. Pelicans selecting this pick for the wizards. Daniela touro the minnesota sophomore center. Who had a really really strong summer season one of the more improved players in the country very skilled at big man. I'm great size. Adding just bore skill in size to this pelicans roster i'm at the moment If you remember earlier jalen smith. I'm selected at thirteen at forty. The grizzlies are on the board. This pick via the silence. This is the first pick that the grizzlies have been able to make in the twenty twenty. Nba draft a doco as a bouquet. The kansas center. Big guy seven. Seven wingspan seven footer. Really good athlete actually just dominant player in the pain. Terrible free throw. Shooter doesn't really do anything facing the basket. But when you have that size and length and athleticism. I think you get something done in. The and kind of reminds me deondraye jordan. A little bit and a little bit surprised. He doesn't go higher. I get there seems to be a penalty on the big minner plane or pain. Right now in the draft at forty one san antonio spurs back on the on the board yama dr the israeli guard nineteen year old for hop. Well tel-aviv and you know. He's such an intriguing prospect because he plays his butt off. His incredible energy is just making a difference when he's out there but he's not really a point guard. He's kind of more of a two guard in a point guards body. He's not like a great shooter. I'm athletically he's actually not bad at all but that lack of a jump shot kinda undersized i position that makes him more of a second round prospect at he absolutely wants to leave israel and come to the nba. And if it's the g. league next year and so he could be an interesting prospect for san antonio developed down the road

Miami Marlins: Derek Jeter, Kim Ng make baseball history

"I want to start with What I mentioned in the update, and that is the hiring of Qiming as the new GM off the Miami Marlins. And just off the top before we get to the historical nature of this and what it means for North American professional sports, moving forward. Just it is interesting to me. You know? Inevitably, the Rockies and the Marlins will be linked. Both coming into the league together. Iraqis and Marlins or not rivals by any stretch of the imagination. It's certainly if you are Iraqis Fan and the Marlins do something good. And the Rockies. Don't You inevitably draw that line between each other. And for the longest time, even though the Miami the now Miami Marlins used to be Florida Marlins have been more successful or tasted Oldham. Its success more than the Iraqis have. For the most part, the Marlins have been one of the worst run organizations. In all of baseball. We all remember Jeffrey Loria. Would buy a championship. Did buy a championship. 97 When Edgar Renteria got that hit off of Jose Mesa and the world Syriza's Sold everybody off. Because the wage bill would have been too high. But through that, by selling off all those players, he ended up getting a lot of really talented young players. Josh Beckett, Juan Pierre Carl Pavano. And they We're able to go win a championship, and then they were all sold off. Couple of ownership changes later, a monstrosity of a stadium poor attendance. Fire sales seemingly every other year incomes Derek Jeter and we thought that it was going to be more of the same. How in the world Is Derek Jeter. Going to Be the And he's not He runs the Marlins that he has a money man behind him. That helped him get the deal done as much money is Derek Jeter has made throughout his career. He can't outright by a major league baseball team himself, so he has kind of a What Silent partner that kind of front him the money, But he's the face. He's the guy that is making all the decisions. And it's something that We really haven't seen too much. And North American pro sports. We've seen plenty become G m's even presidents. And I guess that might be Derek Jeter's technical title, but two Be The owner. Of a team like the true owner, not nine. Justin Timberlake buying Air Peyton Manning's wife, buying shares of the Memphis Grizzlies. Like it's his team. And then they promptly had a fire sale. After he took over. We thought, okay, same old Marlins. Quietly. They have become one of the more Progressive Four thinking which I guess are It basically means the same thing. Progressive four thinking. Competent.

Chronic Cellars Pink Pedals 2018 Review

"Jay from cheap wine fighter.com. What's the third installment of our Halloween lines twenty-twenty series and this time we have thought we got here Lee grabbed the bottle and it is Chronic Cellars pink petals s a p e d a l s as in bicycle, and it is a Halloween line because off the label has a female skeleton nicely dressed or a bike rider. And running a pink bike with a basket in front and then the basket there is a skeleton dog not scary. But in the Halloween kind of Day of the Dead kind of thing going on their skeletons just white is not paid it but there we go and It's kind of funny because when I was looking to find wines for you know this series I found a red wine from Trader Joe's and a white wife and I think Chardonnay and now I found a rose a I picked wines with skeletons on it. So often that I didn't really leave a whole bunch for myself. I'm a reason why I pick that cuz my theory is that you actually can you know, like you can't choose a book by it's cover where you can choose a wine box label. Because a skeletal line is going to be a ripe Bowl juicy one, but adults, you know, it's for some reason it's it's aimed at certain likes they're one's a certain way like stir labels little off-kilter but wants an adult why we have here this is off. This is not a fluffy little light and Grizzly Rose a it's got its got some body to the palette. That's kind of a firm Sleek wine. The the other knows just feel subtle. But you know interesting it's got some flavors of them take a sip off. It's one of those wines that kind of grow on you as you as you drink it. You're at first you go. And then you kind of kind of get what's going on. There's there's green-apple. There's a cherry there is little creamy thing. Not sure where that's coming from dead leaves or whatever. It's got really good acidity. Let's the flavors unfold and plus it gets you reaching for your glass a little bit sooner than you normally would it off but it doesn't fight cuz sometimes you can get a little bit too much acid in these wines and this one doesn't have that. So what's up pretty nice little little wage. I mean, it's I think I found it for twelve. These are wines that are sold at Whole Foods. You find them a lot in supermarkets. You can find them in look wine shop, too. But they were the sons of the man who ran Peachy Canyon wines broke off on their own and started the just labeled back in the lake Palm two thousand and what happens when you get a hot one happens all the time. Is that the demand gross the point where you have to make more and more wine and to do that you need more money. So it means you have to go in debt to do that. And when you got a hot one, there's always someone there to watch throw a bunch of money at the label. You've already brought, you know up to where people are looking for and liking it. So it's like a choice do I go into debt off or do I take their money that I can think of a whole and I'm not sure that that's what they did. It's the Beckett Brothers, you know, I don't know what their mindset was, but I've seen it time and time again that people you know, all these big-name line Brands. They're all owned by somebody who didn't start them and a lot of them cuz they just had it, you know is either going to debt or take a huge amount of money and when you have that as a as a proposition to you people take the money. Two brothers who made The Chronic Cellars and were the sons of Peachy Canyon are now running Peachy Canyon again. So if you like Chronic Cellars start looking for a future Canon and this is a pretty decent wage even when it's not Halloween. This is a year-round Rose a it's got somebody it's 88% Syrah 12% red eyes. It's kind of a rhone-style the French know what they're doing with rozay and this kind of fouls that's from Paso Robles r a v a hundred percent from Paso Robles contracted thousands of Chronic Cellars doesn't have their own Vineyards, but that's okay. And that's it.

"Netflix, now available for streaming the devil All the time is an ensemble crime drama Little film Noir ish with a bit of the grizzly to it, And it kind of recalls the cone brothers in their blood. Simple Fargo dark, twisted mode, but this has none of their mordant humor and in two hours and You know, 18 minutes, it does meander a bit here and there. Still, I thought it was a good one. Presenting this web of circumstances happened stances consequences that Titan's over the course of three decades, the forties fifties and sixties between two rural towns and a couple of families. One of the towns in Ohio, one of the towns in West Virginia, there a couple hours apart.

And his dogged by tragedy that's almost biblical, and that that carries over to others whose lives were connected in the story, By the way, the role played by Holland. Yes, Spider Man himself. It's his closest you get to a heroic lead in the movie, and this British actor is pretty convincing as a young American from that part of the country. It's like he was bit by a radioactive hillbilly.

J.B. Bickerstaff on the NBA Strike and Racial Justice

"Us today is the head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers. Also, the greatest interim head coach and the history of basketball. He is now three for three. With the Houston Rockets, the Memphis Grizzlies at now the Cleveland Cavaliers interim turned head coach J., B. Bickerstaff. Thanks for coming on with us. Man I appreciate it I guess that's an honor to say. Then the greatest coach of all time but I appreciate you having me man. Looking forward to the conversation so. What were you thinking last night as the Milwaukee, bucks don't take the floor and it becomes a reality that. There's not going to be a playoff game and then we see the way it plays out through the evening. We saw your tweets couple of them went viral by the way Jay bickerstaff on twitter. Now love that but you really some poignant words to say and so I just take me through your day and experiencing that somebody in the NBA. You know they did a good job of keeping their thoughts to themselves and it was really a surprise. You know normally something like that is GonNa get out you know but they did a great job of keeping it to themselves organizing it in making it a powerful statement You know I can't speak enough about the power of their voices and what it means to communities and people all over the world and all of our country for sure So you know it's a powerful statement and that's what people don't what some people don't want to give credit where credit is due Did, not know the outcome of what was going to happen. You. Know they didn't know what their sacrifice could possibly lead to as far as repercussions from the League or from TV ESPN fans whatever it may been, but they still had the courage to do it. And that says a lot. It says how important it is to and how important it should be to all of us. What do you think? How do you think you would have handled it because to hear it coaches were still getting ready for that game players really kind of did this on their own in the locker room and it's within an hour of game. and. So I'm sure you can attempt to relate to the coaches and kind of what was going on. If you put yourself in that position, how do you think would have played out because I can only match the stress of Getting Ready for a playoff game is is something already and then you walk in and your player said, we're not playing tonight. And I think the first thing is you show support this isn't something has popped out of the Blue I'm sure that there have been a ton of conversations with bud in his guys about the circumstances he's got some very powerful guys and you saw what George Hill Janas. Had to say how it's impacted them. In, affected down extremely difficult way. So I'm sure they've had some conversations. But in that moment you show support you know you ask questions. You help guide or whatever the plan may be but you're there as a resource, a tool because again, you're not getting in the way of. Two, powerful a moment. It means too much a this time in our society what's going on? So you're there as a resource a shoulder to lean on if they need it. It seems to me that minor standing from talking to players and coaches and exects. Slow last day is that it is clear that the bubbles as a success in terms of quality of play in terms of health and safety. But a lot of people fail that it's been a failure on the league's part in terms of capitalizing the fact that everybody's there twenty two teams started there now thirteen remaining and it's been a failure to creatively find ways to take advantage of this platform. I mean. To me yesterday that Jaylen Brown tweets out that he wants to leave to go protests and the feeling is that he should be able to make more of an impact being from the bubble and utilizing that platform and player seemed to be a frustrated with the fact that they can't creatively use that platform right now and it seems to me like everything that happened yesterday is just the players taking that into their own hands to accelerate this. And I think that's what the players do. Right I think when all these things happen and you know the players lead nothing best. What's the most fantastic part of this is you know we are looking for voices in our society to push us over No human being has more influence or larger platforms than are NBA players. So we expect them and we're depending on them to lead us. They're leading US where our so called leaders have failed us. They're trying to pull us all together and it's for the right reasons. You know what? I mean this isn't a selfish caused. This isn't a divisive 'cause of this is a cause for equality and humanity of everybody should be able to get on board with and we need their voices in their platform. And we'll follow suit.

Firefighters Battle Massive Fires In Colorado

"More than two thousand firefighters are battling four major blazes in Colorado. Michael Hayden is incident commander for a wildfire in the northern part of the state we're working with the other fires right now trying to share resources we said just about everything we have out and recalling from resources all over the nation. Colorado public radio reporter Michael Elizabeth Sacrifice joins us from the town of Eagle that's near a large fire in western. Colorado. Hi there. Hi there. Thanks for having me on. So tell me exactly where you are what you can see what's happening there. I'm not far from Dot Sarah which was one of the areas on pre evacuation notice which means folks need to be ready to leave at any moment the Grizzly creek fires burning in a canyon nearby about a mile east of glenwood springs and this Canyon is one of Colorado's natural treasures. One firefighter I spoke with described seeing it burn as heartbreaking. This fire has shut down interstate seventy, which is the main east-west highway into and through the mountain communities, and this shutdown is causing major issues for businesses and commuters, and because of this is the number one fire priority the nation to try and get it contained and the highway has been shut down for more than a week already. So the number one priority in the nation. But as we mentioned, there's three other big fires in Colorado right now, what's going on with those? Yeah more than one hundred and thirty thousand acres have burned in total and a few hundred people are evacuated some from their homes others from campsites and trails. There hasn't been any structure loss yet firefighters are working really hard to try and keep that from happening short the playing. The penguins fire north of Grand. Junction is now the fourth largest fire in Colorado's recorded history and these fires are hardly contained all at this point and it's really smoky close to these fires especially. But around the whole state, the State Health Department has issued an air quality alert for the front range and surrounding counties, which warns that at risk folks especially should stay inside let children older adults in those with heart or lung disease. Yeah. I was GONNA ask how the pandemic is affecting all this. How what do we know about how covid nineteen may be affecting? Either the people trying to flee the fires of the the firefighters trying to fight them. Right, the State Health Department warns that there is an overlap the people who are most impacted by wildfire smoke are the people who are most at risk for the worst symptoms of Corona virus. The state said the meeting of Kobe nineteen and the smoke is quote a real public health issue. Some research has shown that exposure to air pollution can worsen the outcomes of catching the virus, and while fire smoke can irritate weakened the lungs and immune system making someone more susceptible to infection the state suggestion to stay inside to avoid the smoke they say is now even more important because it can also help stop the spread of Code Nineteen as well. What do we know by the way about what has caused these Colorado I? Let's see Mr with me. Start Your back high. I was asking about the cause of the first. Yeah. Going there under an investigation, the largest fire was caused by lightning. And right now in the Grizzly Creek fire, the canyon fire was likely sparked by a chain dragging on the highway or maybe a cigarette out the window at originated in traffic. But what's really fueling these fires statewide drought and heat, and we haven't really seen those monsoon rains just yet. Right thank you so much for your reporting. Stay safe. Appreciate it thanks for having me on. That is reporter Michael Elizabeth sacrifice with Colorado public radio.

And then you know the eight games. I was like, whatever with a games I guess I felt like the Los Angeles Lakers, who went three and five during the eight games. Now they want to get revved up and try to win an MBA title and I get it. That's what I've been waiting for. So really, basketball is finally here. For me. It felt like a guy going over the weekend when the Portland Shura blazes one, they're playing game over the Memphis Grizzlies. John Moran went out and did what you would expect him to do. Ah, 35 points. I think he had eight assists, also had eight turnovers. He's still a young player. He's a killer. I hope he can get bigger. A little bit more devastating because he's a He's a rare combination in the MBA. He's going at your throat, but this year was not about him. Okay. This year is gonna be about who was gonna win the N BA title under an end Unique circumstances. Who's gonna walk away the N ba champion? In something and nobody would have ever thought about months ago. We actually didn't know whether or not we were gonna have a resumption of the embassies in I remember actually being on n ba TV. And when the season was shut down, I was hanging out with my main man, Channing Frye. We were getting ready to do our show and boom Rudy Gobert such positive and then Donovan Mitchell ends up testing positive and then the season shut down and nobody Back on March 11th knew what the hell was going on. And now that we got basketball back, it's real simple. It's what it is wide open. It's wide the hell open. I don't know who you could necessarily come out and say it is a favorite. Vegas right now says that the Milwaukee Bucks are a slight favorite over the two Los Angeles teams. In the Los Angeles Lakers. They haven't really had a great showing since the bubble got restarted. The offense has been mediocre. The offense has been pretty slapstick. The offense has been one of the worst in the N B A in the bubble. LeBron James. You know what you're going to get from LeBron. They sat him a game for precautionary reasons, had a growing issue but came back and everything is fine. And in the last game before the bubble he barely played got in a sweat, and they sat him down. Because LeBron James at this stage of his career, Yes, he's going to play basketball games that they're not gonna load manage LeBron James to death. But the reality is he's in it for rings. He's in it for a championship. He's in it for his legacy. Now. Unfortunately for him, he's playing what a bunch of role players that you can flip a coin and not necessarily know which direction they're going to go. Even his other superstar Anthony Davis. Needs to be more aggressive if the Lakers were gonna go ahead and make any type of move towards an MBA title. That's just the reality of it, and their opponent in the first round is not going to be forgiving. I told you that the Portland Trail Blazers have been on a roll. They have been on a run. You have. Ah, you're kitsch, who's back who missed almost all the last season of the majority of this season is well due to a leg injury. You have a rejuvenated Carmelo Anthony, who's not tasked with going out there and show shouldering the entire scoring low but can still knock down a big shot. Whether or not it's efficient or not. That's a totally different question. CJ McCollum is bowling out of control with a fracture in his back Gary Trent Junior is stepping up. So you might say that the Portland Trail Blazers at this point in time that they have more depth. That they have more of Ah street. That they're coming in with a little bit more fire in their back pocket. Even know in many cases, LeBron James to most, I would say too many is still considered the best basketball player in the league. You might say it's Yana, Santa Campo. But if I need someone to still run me to a title, I'm still looking at the guy who's done it the majority of his career and that's LeBron James. But they do have some issues and Damian Lillard he has his own thoughts about taking on the Los Angeles Lakers. Listen, what little it had to say The lady is the number one seed in the West for a reason. They got the best player in the world on a team. But at the same time we didn't fight a Zhar does before in the bubble, just they argued a sea org Anges Get beat up on. We feel like We have it. We have a chance in a serious against anybody in this league.

Are those bucks Players going, Teo get Here's one thing, though, in a game last night were Yannis onto the Campo probably didn't need supply. He did play, so you would have wondered if Mike Budenholzer would've put onto the tempo out in the court tomorrow. Up against the Memphis Grizzlies. Now he doesn't have that option to do so, because you're honest onto the Campo got hit with a one game suspension for a foolish head. But last night On most Wagner and we've seen the honest answer component on the bubble, pick a fight with Dante Hall of the Nets, and then picked a fight with also Mo Wagner. And they were both unnecessary. Why are you doing that? Why you put in yourself in that situation? It's not like you're headbutting LeBron or CO I Leonard, your head butting two guys that Don't mean a damn thing to you, and both their team stink. So you're going to be a back to back M v p Award winner? Maybe trying to pick up the intensity in the bubble, which I could appreciate on DH. Maybe because you know, everyone's saying your season doesn't mean anything until yeah. Get to the embassy finals and really your season starts the postseason. Maybe you just get in and see that that's finally coming. But for Johannes last night, what he was doing was absolutely foolish, and I don't get it and even after the game He realized that it was a mistake and what he did. Terrible action.

Save The Whales. Save The Tigers. Save The Tapeworms?

"Most of us have heard of saving the elephants or saving the polar bears. But what about saving their parasites scientists are increasingly finding that parasites are key part of ecosystems and many risk of extinction NPR's lauren summer explains. When your job is to study parasitic worms, not everyone wants to hear what you do for a living. It's not a popular topic of conversation cocktail parties. I can tell you that Chelsea would is assistant professor at the University of Washington parasites a major public relations problem they're gross and slimy and most people don't really like thinking about them. But the fact is that they're really important in ecosystems would. Says just look at a flat worm she studies in California Ponds I. The parasites starts as an egg inside a bird, the birds about the egg, which infects snails than it goes from the snail to frog, but the parasite needs to get back in a bird to finish its life cycle. So it causes deformities in the frogs legs, which makes it easier for birds to catch and eat them which helps. Sustain. The bird population would says, it shows how humble parasites can influence the entire food web. But if birds are threatened, we're GONNA. See some parasites decline possibly to extinction in the presence of environmental change, which is why team parasitology released a new parasite conservation plan. The first step is simply identifying them of the millions of parasite species only about ten percent are known to science says Schuyler Hopkins of. North Carolina State University. We know nothing about them. We don't need another name Oh definitely don't know what they're doing with the ecosystems. Many parasites are just as vulnerable as their host animals are to climate change and habitat loss but even though an animal may be listed as endangered, it's parasites aren't, but they could be added alongside their more visible hosts. It would be a really great way or easy way. To get a lot of mileage for her site conservation because humans tend to gravitate to animals like us. It is the wolves and the grizzlies and the polar bears mostly the mammals that really get people's attention Jacob Malcolm Works for the advocacy group defenders of wildlife. He says, it's not all bad. That humans focus on those charismatic critters saving their habitat can also help the less charismatic species in their ecosystem.

"grizzlies" Discussed on The Lowe Post

"On paper as upsets I think we're GONNA have a bunch of those early on. Because like I've got the new. New Orleans Utah game the very first game back. Like if Zaire back especially I'm taking New Orleans in that because that's a game, they need to win. Quin Snyder doesn't need to win that game like let's let's ease into this whole thing and I think what the contenders will do Zach as they get closer to that first round of the playoffs. That's when they're going to start amping up the minutes in getting people ready so I think those first few games are going to be absolutely crucial for Memphis and I think their schedules actually tough. Right there like if I were them, I'd WanNa be playing the clippers, the Lakers and dinner. Early, on because I think you're gonNA, see their main guys. Twenty four minutes something like that as as into it I would guess that they're faking it a little slower in practices and stuff right now. I don't know that for sure. That's just my guess. Well I. Don't I don't know how I feel about you coming on this podcast and using your coaching expertise in Acumen to undermined my point coach. You know it's it's not very now. It's very, it's I. You're probably right, and my point was probably stupid. In that case, watch out for the PELICANS because their first three Games are Utah Clippers and then the rest of their schedules teams that are under five hundred so they if if if his ion returns in time. By that logic which I actually kind of agree with now that you've said it. They have a real chance to go like seven, one six and two if they can pick up where they left off. Yeah, and I think here's the point, is that? I I think the bigger problem if I'M A MEMPHIS FAN. And I'm thinking that Memphis is being treated unfairly in this whole thing to me wouldn't be the schedule or anything else because you only got to play eight games, you're up three and a half games. You had a tough schedule coming up. Had you resume? I would feel good about that. The part that I wouldn't like if I were Memphis. Fan Is that we're probably going to have to play and play in probably not gonNA be able to finish up more than four games, and now that's. All I'm going to have to go out and win another game. I could be done two games into the the playoffs. You know not make it into the finally. That's where I feel a little bit. Did a guest and I'm not against what the NBA is doing in this because I think. Both economically and for the encore products. They needed these eight games leading in, and it wouldn't have been worth doing. If all you brought the sixteen playoff teams, it would have been a bunch of. That meant nothing. So I thought they made the best decision they could here. But if I were Memphis fan I'd probably be railing about it, yeah. That the time for self interest. I, just I I kind of lost it a couple of months ago, talking to I'd like. The NBA got a lot of credit for everyone came together and have the collective spirit in mind like actually think that there was a little more pernicious sort of self interest behind the scenes like I was talking to a lottery team that I won't name who was like well. You know I. Mean it kind of sucks for us because you know. We were set up to like one in fifteen in our last. Whatever games really move up the lottery odds? Our frozen, but if we have to come back and play, we might win together. They Stop Stop. Pandemic just make the best of it. Put All. Your stuff decided to make the best of the other team. We should mention here as Boston. which gets the grizzlies pick with top six protection, so if the grizzlies make the playoffs, Boston will get the seventeenth whatever it is if they missed the playoffs. And jump up in the lottery. Then the pick rose over and becomes unprotected. Next season. I would guess that Boston is rooting for that scenario because an unprotected grizzlies pick next season, even if they draft another good player in the Western. Conference your then you then give yourself to be like an injury to a grisly away from being in pole positions, and that's the other thing. Let's talk about. The New Orleans Pelicans, the other team at the edge of this discussion team that has been chasing Memphis since the return of Williamson and really you know they're twenty, eight and thirty six their tenth minus point eight points per game, whatever fifteenth and offense, which surprised me I thought they were better than that and certainly with a certain. Like Flying Boulder of a human being, they have been better than that twentieth and defense. That did not surprise me. They were a train wreck on defense. For most the season with Zion they are ten and nine, and with Zion on the court they are plus nine point five per one hundred possessions, so you really talking about two teams the Pelicans Without Zion and the Pelicans with Zion. The pelicans woods I on despite the fact that he was not in good shape and struggle horribly on defense looked very much like a playoff team and frankly. One of the most fun teams to watch the entire league, if not the single most fun team to watch. There are a lot of ways to tackle this, but the first is like. We need to know I on his coming back. We don't quite know that yet, but. Boy. This team is really really interesting and. His presence changed them in obvious ways right like he's a star. He's already a star. He walks in as star. You can give him the ball pretty much anywhere on the floor and let him go one on one. You can use them in lots of different ways on offense. You can post them. You can even run a little pick and roll with him. which is something we didn't see? You can. He can take it coast to coast and just run people over and tear the backboard down. But more than that. I just felt like something. More ephemeral something more intangible clicked into place for them. Just it just seemed like everybody was now in the appropriate spot in the hierarchy, there was all of a sudden, a little bit more playmaking on the floor, so that all the playmaking making responsibilities were more well distributed. offensively. They had a look of a team that was a having a lot of fun and be. was starting to settle into a groove in terms of like. We know how we want to play. We know what our strengths are defensively. They had a ways to go coach. What strikes you about design on version of the PELICANS? Well Zion, in particular I, mean you? You hit on all the things that you can do with him and I think you hit on the intangible part of it, I. Think just you know like we talk with John Moran. Zion there, there's a different level of confidence with the PELICANS team. I mean I think they're players believe. That, there are a playoff team, and even that they can make some noise in the play offs when they have him in all of their dies but I think what people missed. With the PELICANS is how rapidly this team was improving. Even before he came back, so they got off to the six and twenty two start where they were nineteenth in the League often simply and twenty eighth defensively I mean they were. Not even really competitive. Okay, I mean the transition defense was. Still is unbelievably bad. Yeah, terrible and give up a lot of points in the pain, and they turn the ball over, and this not much good to watch, then after that six and twenty to start 'em before Zion came back, they had a stretch for a month middle of December. Two Middle January. They go eleven and five before he comes back. And they were ninth offensively and twelve defensively, and then Zaylon comes back, and they actually were eleven offensively in those twenty games. I know he missed one of an eight defensively with Zion and so. This team continued to get better now. What Zion bring to them, okay. How did they get better defensively that one has? Stuck with me because US Cohen's not very good defend. I'm so happy. You brought this up because again. If you look at their numbers with Zion on the floor, they're giving up one hundred and three point five hundred possessions, which is like number, two in the League would be number two in the league among teams with him off the floor. They're giving up like dude. Just letting people score basically. And so I I did some research into this. I want to hear your answer to the question. Do you believe that he's? What is happening in? Do you believe it has anything actually to do as I Williamson I? Do think it has a little bit to do as I on Williamson. Williamson's I. Go back to the point I may..

"Everyone and welcome to another episode of the town hall as all move forward we have been stuck for like two and a half months now and it's really weird time in history but the town hall is staying dedicated to telling really important sustainability stories. And we're lucky. We get some really massive brands. This episode is one of those lucky ones. Today I'm actually joined by two guests. Jones enlisted were from National Wildlife Federation earlier in the year. Rubicon was named the official sustainability and tech partner for recycle mania of the competition under the management of the NWF but will get into all of that and enlists. Thank you both so much for being here today thank you. I've only done multiple jest episodes like once or twice so let's just establish a little bit of water for answering some of the questions. Honest truth besides my husband and my dog youtube or the only people. I've interacted with today so I'm a little over all of us to bumble words over each other so Liz let's start with you. Tell me a bit about your role at. Nwf A little bit about your professional time line and how you can got to where you are and then in that time line or in your story what do you think sparked passion for environmental sustainability in in Christie. You're on deck and I'd love to know the same free. We'll start with this. I am the director of Pre K. To twelve education for National Wildlife Federation. I have actually end with the fedaration for most of my career. I'm going into my twenty four th year and I really started off in a regional office and did a lot of regional education work and for the last eleven years have been focusing my efforts and the national level And really pushing forward the work that we do with schools and other informal education opportunities and community My background actually. My undergraduate degree was in wildlife biology and forestry and I started off as a wildlife biologist but Kinda fun interesting fact is I found. I had a lot more fun topping and and I feel like I made a bigger impact talking with people within the community that I was doing my research in collecting data. You know like the nighttime Barstool chat where we were talking about. Grizzly Bear Habitat. And what it meant to you know Maintain and keep that habitat healthy and the ways people get involved so that that's somewhat how I moved from that into education and got my masters in education at in Oregon And then pretty much. Except for one other job with The Lake Champlain Basin Program doing watershed education. I've been working for WF And you know my my passion for this work. I I think really stems back from my childhood. I was lucky enough to spend every single summer and a place called a Greensboro Vermont which is in North East Kingdom of Vermont on Kathy Lake. It was my grandparents Cabin and my parents would just throw out the door every morning We'd be gone all day with the catching crayfish and swimming at night. We'd be catching lightning bugs and watching a shooting stars with my grandparents and it just it set the stage for my wanting to be able to pass this Passion for Nature and the environment and to also protect loved that Christie Europe. Sure yeah so I have been with National Wildlife Federation for several years as well. I think I'm going on. I started in two thousand three at National Wildlife Federation.

Go on about and go out there and translate and everything. We've been trying to do what when we play against somebody else. Not each other trying to get better me. A locked in on the game plan like more people are surprised. But I mean we're not you know we're we're confident in ourselves and we know capable of what about your journey from from the beginning. It was something that we didn't have to talk about because we already knew that that that was everybody's goal and the where who put in Dan Day out talking with coach and understanding that it doesn't come over night and being able to take positives and negatives from wins and losses as been used. We've been able to. I think. Learn a lot from losing game so we don't make the same mistakes or and like when we're at home for a while we were able to put together a lot of games in a row because of that we were able to lock him. We're able to play together defensively and I think our communication has been the Akita's in outdoor. We've been doing now like I say you'll enduring you'll on your social media. Sometimes you'll like talk about grit and Grind City Grit and grind your team's not. I think it's more maybe a mentality of Memphis Grizzlies basketball than it was a style of play. They played slow. It was like to me. It was like the Grizz were a little bit. Like when Ghazal and Tony Allen and Conley it was like a NFL team. That ran the ball. They ran the ball like they weren't playing fast. They killed you and a half court. You guys are just the opposite. You're flying. You're up and down the court but like you still hear grit and grind around Memphis is that now maybe just more. It's a mentality that you think like people in that city have about. Maybe the way you compete like the persistence of a team. Like you hear that still that theme around that city when it comes to to Grizz definitely My mentality of some net. You KNOW EVERYBODY GOES BY IN MEMPHIS BUT FOR US. I mean we said we're neighbors Jane. We're not we're not those guys who played in the past so um we definitely play a different style. We try to get out and run but that grit and grime mindset is still there of course. Nexgen is what we are Grind is a mindset. Is something pave the way for a long time and gave the city a lot of life and a lot of joy and from there we take it and we make next Jan? We make it our own and we go out there and have fun.

Hey I'm going to be kind of front and center on this rebuild here now when when the front office starts making moves you usually get wind of you know things are going to start changing Mike and Marken. Everybody did a great job of leading in doing but they did for so many years that they kind of put the team in a great position. Where me and Dylan at the time. Who were there can make an impact going forward and we know how to carry ourselves handle ourselves and then we add him it. Just it makes everything easy so it was quick though because last year it was a completely different team has come. It's now completely whole thing now. How much do you guys hear about like Memphis is used to have like a partnership right? It was Marcus Hall and my colleague for a very long time. They accomplished a lot got to the playoffs. Every year advanced in the playoffs. When you listen to the fan base or you listen in that community and even maybe around the building in the organization about sort of standard those guys set like professionalism and how they went about their business. Do you still feel it around the organization a little bit. Did you hear about it? A Lot. I mean. Of course you hear it a lot. Those guys meant a lot to Memphis But I mean we're a new team like you said So we just go out and just try to us and instead of liberal somebody else life You know just go out and compete. Just play together. Shot to get wins. This was you know how it goes when you have first year. Second Year guys. You're supposed to be in the lottery. You're supposed to take your bumps over few years and then maybe two years from now you compete to get the eighth spot is a seven spot in the West and here you guys are holding down the eighth spot. You've done it with injuries with guys out with some teams on your tail within your group. Was there much conversation earlier about. Maybe we're a little bit better than people think and maybe we shouldn't be putting any limits on what we can do. It is not easy to make the playoffs in the West. You guys know what you go through every night. But what was the conversation among the group about that? Maybe this would be better quicker than than anyone else imagined. We was looking to the future. We always focused on. The president thanked the first message. We sent out to each other worse. We try to be good now. So we'll doing that. We could Practicing hard you know just trying to get better each and every day Just trying to continue to learn grow. We got a young team we had some vets. We got some young coaches. So does everybody know just bought into what we have to do. Learning everything and then once we got clicking. We just went on a row. Now I think from from the start. We knew our building what we're capable of. But like you said you know. Stay in the president's key I think when you stay in the present and do just your habits. Every day everything works out the way it should if you just put in the work and you know that's what we did and we've always been confident in income from anything and income from Windsor. We just were GONNA have the confidence regardless to go out there and play because we're doing what we love at the end of the day doesn't doesn't matter for winning or losing. Brennan do the same thing. Yeah Jaren you've seen Gye. He's had two plays this year that I think John has gotten more like made more. Highlights gotten more attention for to miss dunks right than anybody gets on made ones the. Kevin Love One earlier this season and then Anthony Davis the one the other night like. Are you guys waiting for him? Like one of these days. He's one of those is going to go down against one of these guys right like like you get a little closer on those. When he's put trying to put one down on seven foot all star guy in this league. Are we getting closer to seeing it? I mean you've already seen it as well and there's a lot a lot of crazy he's missed. But there's a lot of crazy nineties made and you're gonNA see a probably a lot of both for a many years but he's got to remember that at the end of the day that's that's not all to his game You know those dunks are crazy but you know the other parts of his game. The fact that he's able to read the flooring has like he is the reason why we're getting wins. And that's pretty much all I care about at this point. Do you fear for his safety? And he's he's ten feet up in the air flying. He's it's a hard landing on those zero party like all right. Don't get hurt doing these. Maybe maybe on a couple of hours but I you know body control. He has good body control. So you know we work on. We work on stuff like that Landings and jumping and stuff to make sure that doesn't happen so yeah I'm not. I'm not worried about do in that moment. What is how in your mind. Are you calculating? Sort of the risk reward of one down on somebody about because you get caught up in the air you get hit or is it just instinct. You just see the rim and just go just go always address of my mindset was just finished play Honestly don't care who's under the go Stood I say my set. So the one. The other night was a moment. You thought I got this one. I've got this one just caught the back door and we're just going to finish They ended up quality to charge. But I mean I just wasn't able to get our before I wasn't able to get up for They call it Scotts turf builder. Thicker Lawn has announced. They have obtained the solution to getting a thick lush green lawn in exchange for all of your hard work a pretty sweet deal for both sides..

"Hey everyone welcome in to another edition of the World Pot. I'm here in New York with the Memphis. Grizzlies one of the surprise teams an all of the NBA this season and something of a podcast doubleheader per us starting out with Taylor Jenkins the first year head coach of the Grizzlies. Who's got this team in playoff contention currently the eighth seed in the Western Conference in talked Taylor about his history with Gregg Popovich and Quin Snyder. And of course Mike Boot and holders and assistant in Atlanta and Milwaukee and then the second part of this podcast with rookie of the year favourite Djalmir and his teammate. Jaren Jackson who both players have the makings of future all stars in the NBA. But have the grizzlies right now in? What many of us would have thought was improbable playoff contention. But before we get going here in New York with the Memphis Grizzlies. Make sure you're also listening the low post with Zach Lowe Brian Winters and hoop collective and the as VP pod. With Scott Van Pelt. Sa- let's get to it and let's start with my conversation with Memphis Grizzlies. First Year. Head coach Taylor Jenkins the Wakata Pot is sponsored by Delta Airlines. Who believe that the more you go out and see this world of ours. You'll find that. There's more that connects us than divides us one of the great luxuries of traveling. As much as I do in this job is getting to check in. And some of the League's best players coaches and executives and some of best times. Are we connect not only about our shared love and passion of basketball but also about family friends and even food so no matter where you're headed next know that when you meet New People you might have more in common than you think Delta? Keep climbing here with Taylor Jenkins the Memphis Grizzlies coach the coach of the eighth seed in the Western Conference Thirty and thirty one As we take this Taylor in the western conference coach of the month for January I always. I've never what do you get coach? A month to get a certificate suitable for framing is as a kid now first off. Thanks for having me. Yeah obviously a great honor text messages. You know some phone calls. You know got great letter in a little trophy from the coaches association. That's very very appreciative of that. So something to hold onto and just remember the great month that we had all the growth that we've had up to that point of the season so definitely a humbling. Honour Hope for more team success for sure I always imagine you guys getting like those certificates that like your mother used to hang up on the refrigerator some stuff. That's that's the coach at a month player of the week. A little bit more professional with a letterhead. Also it's good. It's when you think Taylor of listen you had been a head coach in the G. League You've been assistant for four years. You've been a head coach for one year and head. Coaching experience head. Coaching experience. Like you get a lot thrown at you. What's the one thing at this level that until you're in the seat until you've done it now for pre season and sixty plus games that no one could really even in there with my buttonholes are for in Atlanta Milwaukee? What was the one or two things that you go but people couldn't prepare me for that or how much that takes the whether it's a challenge or how much time in my day that thing takes while I think a lot of it at the end of the day what it boils down to your voice as a coach. You know when you're an assist in you know even dating back like you talked about when I was in the daily You Find Your coaching voice. When you're running workouts in your leading scouts having dialogue and building relationships with other players and helping from the sidelines. But it's all on a servant assisting role but then when you had that head coaching experience which I did my last year. The Toro's you know you've taken all that stuff done before and now you're the final one to speak. You're the one that made the final decisions all the thought process that you have as a head coach ultimately. It's what are you going to speak? What are you gonNa tell the players in a film session? What are you gonNa tell them in a practice where you're gonNA tell them in a game timeout? Obviously I've been blessed to watch pop up close work with guys coach. Bud and Quin Snyder and Kenya. Ackson other coaches in the NBA. And get these bits and pieces from them and that helps you develop your coaching voice. And non until you're actually in that seat that people talk about and you're the one that has to make that final decision or make that play caller make that substitution or. Make that choice to you. Know jump on a player in a film session. Go after them and push the buttons. It's your voice. It's all the preparation you've done before which you do as an assistant you know. We're feeding head coaches as assistants every single day with ideas here and there to help the team. But you know I. It's not until you're in that seat that it's all that preparation before that gets to the point where now you're the one that has to make that call. You have to be the one that speaks up. It makes those decisions you talk about getting your coaching voice and remember something Steve Clifford. I think he said to me on a podcast and we were talking about when he was becoming head coach in college for the first time and he went and chase down. Jeff Van Gundy who was with Nixon about just getting some advice like a few things. You could tell me about being a head coach for the First Time. I think he was at Delphi in New York and one thing that Jeff told them then that always stayed with them is as a as a head coach. You've got to be really maybe economical in your words that if you're giving if you're talking all the time and you're giving direction all the time after a while. Maybe it's just that you've got to be focused on a few things that are important when you his thing was when you call a team in to huddle and practice that it better be really important. It can't just be play hard. Let's work let. What did you learn about how much volume you give the players of your voice in deciding what's important and what needs to have impact with them? Yeah I mean that's a that's a great thing you have to deal with as a head coach. Especially but that's why you gotta be relying on your assistant coaches you their an extension of your voice. They're working hand-in-hand with the players every single day in their own individual development. All the stuff we're doing in practice. I hopefully empower my staff to run a lot of drills so that you know what you just said as the head coach when you speak. It's impactful that you know you have to be very diligent with the amount of words. Not just the specific words and the point you're making about how much Attention SPANS YOU. WanNa get on big labor less is more? It's a good old populism But when you're speaking it's deliver specific message so they can get back to work And then I talk about my since all the time. They're the ones carrying that message that we're having our staff meetings all the time and when they go out and work with our players they can elaborate a little bit more about you know coaching his is talking about. Obviously you're running timeouts. You're running film sessions and there's an educational piece. Sometimes you have to know your audience at the end the day. Sometimes you have to speak a little bit more coaches always talk about. There's a feel to the game. There's a feel to how much needed talk how less you have to talk. That's been some the net. You kinda just observe as an assistant grown up you see pop. Do you see Budde do it. And when I talked about coaching voice ultimately you have to decide how much to use voice. And that's been fun you know. It's always knowing the pulse of your team individual players who needs more or less and that's a fun challenge every day as a coach. And that's one of those things that you talk about. What coaches deal with especially head coaches? That's on your mind all the time. About what messages you have to deliver to your team so that you're steering in the right direction. You're not polluting their mind with too much nonsense or too much overflow or you're keeping it simple thing out there and just play hard you talk about. It's not just play hard and compete and do this. You game specific things to work on so they can go out and just focus on the top line compete and play Heart Taylor when you sat down with your GM's at climate and front office and you get the job. And you're mapping out what this is going to look like this year and you've got a core guys are very young. You were GONNA play two rookies lot. Obviously John Moran who you knew you were going to hand the ball from day. One and Brandon Clark becomes an important player for you and Jaren Jackson his second year. Was there ever really any conversation about? Yeah we think we might have a team here that could be competing for the play. Offs like his. This exceeded any conversation. You guys had early about how you're GonNa Kinda grow the team and higher. We're GONNA to do this and then all of a sudden you find yourself one day you know. We're now in March and we're in. We're still in the playoffs. I think one of the great things about this situation now. I'm very blessed because I think Zack and I've been on the same patients. They won through the interview process. You know the amount of authenticity he gave in our interview about where we're at as an organization from ownership all the way through for an office. That coach being in alignment You know what our projection was going to be not just for this year but for the long term how we were going to build a roster how we were going to build for the playoffs and you know obviously we're in a great spot right now with you know twentyish games left eight seed you know with a few game lead. We just focus on. Let's just build the right habits? You know if we do that the right way and I think. That was the expectation that Zack had. You know there was no time line to win. We need to make the playoffs. There's just a culture of winning. You know we knew it was gonNA take time with a young group and a new group even getting some vets in here with these young guys. You were talking about is. Let's not put any pressure on by this time. I think there was obviously a patient's knowing that there's GonNa be some nurturing and growth that we're going to have to go through especially this first year lane is foundation but to be where we're at right now. There's an excitement that it's because we haven't been talking about the playoffs and saying well. The playoffs are going to be in your two or three or four. We'll wait there's an aggressiveness to just develop aggressive developed winning habits the fact that we we've got the ultimate fate in our young guys. Jhad Jaren Brandon Dillon and in the vet so we've surrounded them that a lot of them have playoff experience. People ask. Is this a surprise?.

"grizzlies" Discussed on The NBA Show

"A super secret project that they will bring you you in the near future. But with me from Texas our first of two guests from Texas he is the brand Clark to my Taylor Jenkins it. Is Jonathan Arcs. What's up on ice? I doing man I am great. How're you am loving the Grizzlies Jenkins coach of the year? Let's get going. Yeah we'll get to the Grizzlies Grizzlies on today's episode. We're GONNA talk a bunch about the mid season or the NBA at the mid-season point. I think officially today is the halfway point of the twenty nineteen eighteen twenty season. We have five questions for sharks. That are the most interesting ones going forward in the second half according to me and then eventually really we will bring on Rob Mahoney for his first appearance on the ringer. Mba show that's big. I'll yeah a little bit more in depth about the bucks to seal their Justin. Yeah he's he's a big get for us you know. I took a lot to really commit them. The CAMMAN midseason acquisition Ari go perfect. So let's talk about these grizzlies sharks last night. One of the more exciting games that I've washed a very long time They took it to the Rockets Jami rant had a dazzling play pretty much every two seconds and that that ended up being the grizzlies six win a row they are now pretty solidly in that eighth spot in the Western Conference and to me I think they look like probably the best team in that pretty tight race toward the bottom of the West. So let's get to our first question for you are the the grizzlies for real I think so. I think they found something. I don't think they're going to fall back too much from here. How much they actually make this number? Eight seed bottle. Think they're gonNA be where they thought they were. That started the season. Yeah I think my biggest takeaway from last night was just. How measured immature? They are despite the fact that the core of their team team comes from incredible. Young Players Moran is obviously a rookie. Jaren Jackson Junior and his second year and even Brandon. Clark is playing significant minutes for them. He's also rookie. It just feels like they've already put together a team that is able to match up with a lot of different teams. It seems like they have a very versatile roster sir and also kind of wise beyond their years job was just like Kinda going at harden at one point Where Harden Kinda slumped off of him? I think on a screen and judges like drilled. A top of the key three and. We're just like don't do that like us. Much more. Profane words but He's already playing like a superstar and I think that's really encouraging aging to see not only going forward with this core but perhaps throughout the rest of the second half all the pieces fed really well together which is really impressive for a young team when you're talking and slack last night about the kings and the grizzlies and I feel like John De Aron Fox are fairly similar players but you look at their teams right. The ahrends playing with the bunch of older guys not a lot of floor spacing the game a little slower has not get to the rim whereas jaws playing at a fast pace system. He has three point points shooting everywhere around him even though jaws not shooting a lot of threes. He doesn't have to on this team because they space before him. And he can find the actual shooters. Yeah I I think the kings are particularly good comp because it does feel like the Grizzlies are becoming the kings of this season. Right and I think it's really interesting. That amongst the teams that we all expected to perhaps take a mini leap the young teams that have a star or soon to be star. And perhaps those are the teams James that would like crack into a seat. I'm thinking about the Sohn's thinking about the kings. I'm thinking about the timber wolves and all of a sudden the grizzlies who we all expected to be a couple of years away. They've it Kinda leaped ahead of those teams and even if they don't get the a seed I do feel like they have perhaps the brightest future of any of those teams just considering doing Just like what they've been able to build like how they could just really only need juice supplementary pieces around this Moran Jaren Jackson Core They Bill One guy that I think you're particularly excited on. This is a very charges pick. Is the Anthony. Melton can also forgot the third member of the core three here. Well Brendan Clarke has to be in there. So for big four melons the fourth so they basically had a challenge trade With the sons in in which they gave von Carter right to the songs. Well really what it was. The sons were dumping Josh Jackson Salary. Right and everyone when was like Oh man. If the grizzlies can get Josh Jackson. Going top five pick but I think what really happened. Was the grizzlies wanted the Anthony. Melton the whole time which no one's no one really saw coming and like these numbers his numbers they they. Don't even implausible. So check this out. Justin when imbalance on the floor the Grizzlies Lis our plus twelve this season when mel was off the floor there minus seven Chessen nineteen points net rating. That's like Lebron Leonard. Like Janis like numbers. It's unbelievable yeah. That's super surprising. Especially because you'd expect Back core of Melton Moran to cause a lot of issues in terms terms of spacing. Now Yeah I mean. Melbourne is a six foot two shooting guard. Who doesn't shoot threes? So you look at them. You're like what's his place in the League League. You can see why fell the second rounds but I think this is where you can see the value of narrating because different world like five years ago you might see someone. Oh you know in Belton makes great play. Whatever who cares? Bench player doesn't matter but the numbers speak for themselves and when he's on the floor he just it's it's bizarre man. He just seems to always be in the right place at the right time. Whether it's offense or defense I was looking at the one numbers. He does have her as steal and block numbers he kind of play the a much bigger player he creates a lot of fast breaks by turnover team over and the open of Floria makes great passes you make right decisions to. He's just really he's one of the most you need players in the NBA. And it's freaking amazing. How good he's been and really just run started when he got in the rotation early December? That's really changed for that right. It definitely helps that John. John Moran is shooting threes. Well he's up to forty one percent on the season which I think is is surprising for anyone who watched him in college. Everyone expected I think charge. You wrote about this. When he's still at Murray State? We expected them to struggle from three point line. Still shooting them at low volume but that's encouraging and it helps you know be like you're able to play Mellon perhaps it's even more when you have that Dillon Brooks and other guy who's really taken a leap this year. Obviously he was involved in the infamous Brooks non-trade. That happened last year. Where are the brooks brothers? Brothers right. It seemed like the Grizzlies would end up with Kelly oubre way and I think earlier this season and everyone was looking at Uber as fast. Start thinking man. What if the grizzlies had him? He'd be a great fit on the wing. But all of a sudden brooks healthy. He's playing more shooting thirty Six percent from three point land and he does feel like a just a critical part of that rotation I think altogether though I'm most encouraged just because a a lot of young teams. Everyone talks about identity. Like who are they. How are they gonNA play like really like how do they fit into the fabric of the League? I think the best thing that the grizzlies have going for them is they immediately have an identity. They once had grit and grind. But now this is just like running gun and you could see that they play with this just like energy and spirit for it and you have to credit if not Jackson than definitely mirant for dice. Feels like this team plays like a mirant team and that's super encouraging. If you're just like trying to build build something from the ground up I mean really Jenkins but let's all those years. I guess it's like you know maybe it can be like fast and furious the exact opposite of grit and grind right yet instead of a slow it down team at Super Super Fast Right. It's the complete opposite and yet there's something at the core that feels very familiar. Feels like there's just something there it's like it's spirit energy. I don't know what it is but like it definitely feels like they play with a charisma right right and it provides almost armor for a young team where you probably think that you could play against the spurs the rockets and the words. You know what I mean. He had identified with a lot of confidence and the way they play. I guess maybe it's like they kind of dictate the style of the game just right when it was grit and grind. We're GONNA make if you play slower and now like they're so fast spread the floor so well and they're pretty aggressive on defense so they kind of make you spread. They make you play faster. There was a game against the spurs where it was like one thirty five one. Twenty five and the Spurs one around the but they had no choice but to push the taste of all time the grizzlies right and so now a team that we all expected to be pretty significant sellers at the deadline considering that they have two players that a lot of contenders probably cut it in Jae crowder and then Andre Iguodala who who is somewhere in the bay. Probably Reading Steve Jobs biography right now golfing right now all of a sudden. I you wonder if the grizzlies flipped the other way and they're a team that could be looking to add pieces now. The good thing is interesting. I tweeted last night. I got off of of Out of retirement on the twitter's and fired off breaking news guy. I know but isn't Andrew and by the way I got a I got an RT from our guy. Isaac who who is nursing. Is this divider between right now through injury but thank you for for contributing with that.

"So it's not like, they're just like, no, no, no, no, no, we reviews to embrace this kind of modernization of the game is more of there being selective. And then if you have. That aid for ten quarter. And then the other team has to go back and say okay now we have to chase all these three point line Papas laughing knowing lamarcus, I'm pretty sure the next three four five possessions. You're going to be all by yourself. So just go get, you know, and that's just of how it works. So interesting to watch thoughts play interesting to see if they're active at the deadline. The tend to be a very popular buyout market in. So adding anyone of a defense a profile that can him help them, especially on the wing. The Dante ring there for sure, but they they all play hard. Whether it's undersize, you know, the bread Forbes, or whether it's old in a way slower than he used to be Marco bell analogy, or what have you that was sports fans as you ten years ago, but what have been called a tweeter? But you know, what if he gets stuck against the post he's giving up twenty pounds. He fights like hell present on the perimeter. He's going to be on the balls of his feet easily trying to cut you off in and not let you get the shots that you want. So the work is there the effort is there and oftentimes they can collectively even create traps and force the ball out of where the other team must do. It takes all five guys. So going to be interesting to see of Inc. Most of the other teams that have real the Western Conference, or like, you know, I kinda hope they don't really figure it out because it's just this will be one more team someone's going to have to deal with on the play offs, and that, you know, two weeks from when the in the seasons happening as me looking at shall we try to be a little strategic here. Knock it lined up with the Spurs because we see what they can do. Okay. We'll take a break and talk about a team that's has their season kinda heading for me very much the direct opposite direction the Memphis grizzlies..

Apparently the grizzlies call timeout. Who's volatile? Whose ball is? I guess it's is it the grizzlies fall. The grizzlies got a time out off at miss by Carter. Deep on the right corner. And it look like somebody knocked the ball away from the grizzlies mofficials blow, the whistle and said, no, they call timeout before the ball was knocked away. So a huge break there for the grizzlies the grizzlies now with a chance to win it with a shot clock turned off sixty eight sixty eight here at the power plant. Timeouts left for Butler one left for Colby. Who do you set up here the grizzlies head coach Brian Miller? Leading the way the grizzlies is Jade Lee with a game high twenty five twelve in the first half thirteen in the second half. Right down to the wire Jayhawk conference basketball. Rusty graph all the head coach of the Colby, Trojans, pacing back and forth. Like an expectant father right in front of us here. Got his nice suit on arms folded now grizzlies will have to go ninety four feet. So there's two point four seconds to go two point four seconds to go. And Dennis's looking at the inbound they're gonna have to go ninety four feet in two point four seconds to go..

"We're playing my kids and got a phone call, obviously from might have been s too fancy at the time or Chris Wallace one of the two they let me know what was going to happen. And you know, soon as I found out I called coach. Just say, I Pol is home for whatever reason felt guilty about the whole situation. And and thank them for what he helped with my game. And what he did for team in the year. He was here. And then wishing the best I knew and we kinda laughed afterwards. Because I was like you're going to be coaching real soon. Anyway. So you know, I'm seeing on the sideline because he's that kind of guy. And luckily, he got that job. The Knicks also pay a lot more than the grizzlies. All right for him. He did. Did you know that there was let's say tension between him and Mark. I mean, it was at at at the beginning is no different than like any player. Coach tension. You know, like if coach yells at you, you natural instinct is to say something back, or, you know, kind of beat defensive unlike well, actually, you know, whatever it may be and that was normal. And and obviously, I think there's got to certain levels where you know, they're both kind of the same person in the sense that they demand such a high level of accountability upon each other. And so like some points, they would they would clash but other than that, man. You know, Mark went out there, and he played you know, he supposed to do coach out there and coach. And and that's how did you ever try to talk to Mark and be like, can you can we calm down a little bit and give them a chance. Yeah. You know? We it was the same. It was both ways. It was like, you know, coach man, you know, layoff him. Y'all y'all good? You'll be all right. You know, the. And Mark Mark same way. Like, you know, keep moving forward about the these guys in this locker room and coach's a great coach. And he's doing a great job. And and he was like, no, we gotta we gotta figure it out. And we we tried and I guess then the day just wasn't enough. She's a Lionel Hollins used to say much worse things to me than whatever's going on here. Oh, yeah. Line was. Oof. Always not listening right now. He says never repeat the word. I think you saved his worse for at Dottie that was that was the legend where he would just hammer the poor guy. Oh, man mad. Met Ahmed gravis Vasquez. Oh my God. He would get on grave so much for what I don't know. You just head has guys. He would just go actor for a year. And then once you prove to withstand it, he, you know, you're like his best friend Dottie. He's put wherever he is. He's putting up good per thirty six minute numbers. He's still playing sure. Couple of quick grizzlies. Mike Conley history ones ego. Chris Wallace was telling me, you're you're much..

"And try to be there for that. But it was tough. How many surgeries have you had? Two. And that was my first real like something that, you know, part of my big tendon or anything like that other one was when I had to blow out fracture my face kind of had to do that to fix fix me. Pretty I remember, obviously everyone remembers face Mike Conley. But I was reading an interview or when you came on before you set it was when he came on a year couple years ago on this podcast. You said that you still had two years later, some tingling sensation sometimes on the left side or do you still? Yeah. It's crazy, man. It's like if I get a haircut or anything like I have to shut my eyes like tickles and just kills me. But it's weird. Like what about like if your kid's climbing all over you like is it that daily? It's daily several times a day thing. Yeah. Pretty much consistent. You know, if I if I just touch it with my finger. I can start like close my on my mail like that CJ McCollum, right? Yeah. Yeah. Like ran into you or some elbow and invert and trying to still ball doing what I do, you know, trying to get still stuff. Do you have as many steals this year as you used to have you stopped going for steals? I don't go. I don't gamble as much. I can tell you that. I used to gamble all the time. I try to be more solid per J B, bigger, staff requests, more solid is at the salad. All right. So the lowest was just the limbo. I don't like how exactly did you get hurt. Do you know? I can't remember it was some like crept up and you just one day. Like, man. My my hill. Like is killing me. I can't put it in my sock. I can't put my shoe on. I gotta wear sandals and stuff like that. And all of a sudden, it just, you know, you've play games, and you find a way through it. And when you walk out the game, you literally limping and you can't you can't put a sock on and and just dealt with that for a while. And just hope that it got better. And it never did. And you, but you don't even know the origin. There was just a game you played. And all of a sudden, you're you're you're healer. Yeah. I mean, I don't know if it was an practice or like when it triggered it or whatever. But it just was something just you know, you wake up with a sore knee or something, and we just find out that later on some bigger than what you expect. Wow. All right. So you're watching season spiral out of control. Do you is is there a point in the winter or the spring or whenever were you worry? This is this is going to be ended the grizzlies they're gonna trademark we're just gonna we're gonna go into different direction where you worried about that every thought went through my mind last year. I mean, I had thoughts of like, you know, this is like the time they're going to just rebuild. They're going to they're going to blow it up. They're gonna get rid of marketing and try to get rid of me next. And then the following year wherever may happen. Just so on so much uncertainty. You know, and I had never been in that situation before missing a fool season. Barely played any basketball and to watch the team spiral have no control. And just be on the outside. Looking in was was terrifying. Me that was an unfamiliar territory. Was there a meeting or a conversation that reassured you maybe it was an exit meeting with the coaches ever that reassured? You know, we're we're at a run that we're gonna get a high pick and we're going to run this back. Oh, yeah. I think as soon as the season was kind of winding down. And I was recovering from surgery. They were reiterating images. How important my you know, my off season is going to be because we expect not be this twenty one team next season. We expect to be back in the playoffs. We expect to have Mark going full speed and have a good pick and all these things going forward. So it put more of it eased on me as far as like the wrecks that they were headed in. But also just allow me just focus on me and say, I get back..
