"7 5 three 9. I scanned ahead. I'm so proud of you. You managed to manage to slip in the MCU to the Houston Rockets. That's fantastic. Yeah. Yeah, in case it's a little hard to read. I wrote on John Wallace 47.4 player option. There isn't a world that exists where wall doesn't pick up this player option, not even in the MCU multiverse, a buyout after, however. I want to touch on walls teammate though, Jay Sean Tate. We said, you decline team auctions. Sometimes we make a guy restrictive for Egypt. Because Tate only signed a three year total deal instead of a four year total deal..

"You already know what to expect. The Lakers found a way to lose to the Houston Rockets, just when we thought that we had hit rock bottom when they got blown out by the pelicans and we wondered, could there be another low can it get lower? The Lakers said yes. Yes, we can give you that. We can knock you down a little bit further. And we can lose a game to the Houston Rockets. We've got a lot to talk about in this, what a lot of things to break down, unfortunately, I can already see in the chat. A lot of people upset. And rightfully so, you've got plenty of reason to be upset after this game, we'll talk about it. We'll vent the very least. We will get through it together. Joining me is Sean Davis from Lakers nation dot com. Sean, I don't even know what to say. This was, that was brutal. That was awful, awful, terrible. And all I can do is laugh. Yeah, you laugh to hide the pain, but I wanna really quickly applaud all of Lakers nation, the fans are great staff for somehow managing to get through the season because it's been rough men and guys are real ones for stick it through I can't see right now how many people are in here live with us, but you guys are all real ones because if I have to do this I wouldn't be here right now. It's rough on for sure. Yeah, this is this has been really, really bad. This is particularly when you look at this game and I guess here's going to be my big picture point for this. My take away so when the Lakers when the score was tied and the Lakers had the ball and we're heading into the final play of the game, I'm thinking, okay, the Lakers they're going to get the last shot. And I was thinking, all right, even if they score here, the discussion isn't necessarily going to be, hey, the Lakers won this game. It's not going to be a celebration, really, because we all know what we saw. We all know what we saw the Lakers do in this game. We saw them not play basketball. Not put forth much effort, not really look like they cared to be out there. It looked like the worst parts of an All-Star Game. Frankly, to me. And the rockets have an excuse. It's a young team..

"And I'm Mike lynch Coming up today we catch up with Todd de buff president of top rank That's the boxing promotion behind legendary fighters like Muhammad Ali and Sugar Ray Leonard and more recently Tyson Fury That straight ahead on the Bloomberg business of sports show but first let's look at some of the top stories of the week and let's start with the Chinese video streaming giant ten cent They've cut the live broadcast this week of the NBA game between the Celtics and the New York Knicks and it's because of comments made by inescapable My message for the Chinese government is free Tibet And scar that comment caused a whole lot of problems in China angry fans and they called for a boyka It did because he made some pro Tibet comments He also denounced China's president Xi Jinping as a brutal dictator This was all over the course of a three minute video where he slammed Xi Jinping and then criticized China's rule over Tibet saying Tibet belongs to the Tibetan people He was wearing a black T-shirt with an image of the Dalai Lama and he said that he could no longer stay silent And of course China to bet relations very sensitive China reacted immediately and Tencent removed all live streaming for upcoming Celtics games This is not the first time that the NBA has found itself in hot water in China because a couple of years ago in 2019 the Houston Rockets general manager Daryl morey tweeted out support of pro democracy protests in Hong Kong and that sparked a huge backlash in China And Lindsay scarlet just said it we've seen this movie before and we thought the NBA keep your thoughts on the down low but it didn't happen No and I know and a scanter He's a very he's a Muslim he's from Turkey And we did an interview with the ABC affiliate in Boston a few years ago with him when he spoke out against the Turkish government and he still had family over there And they're in an arrest warrant was actually his reform four years ago So this will not be the last we'll hear from and his canter I promise you I mean this matters to Barr also because the NBA is hugely popular in China It's the most popular U.S. sports league Forget the MLB forget the NHL It's all about the NBA The NBA's business in China is a $1 billion enterprise and we've seen from superstars like LeBron you tread carefully in China Well you just hit again you hit the nail on the head There's a lot of money for the NBA and NBA players to be made in China and that's why a lot of the players have been like you said treading lightly And NBA commissioner Adam silver had his state of the league address on Tuesday and he expected revenues to hit or exceed $10 billion on that was before the Celtics stream was pulled by a ten cent over in China so maybe that this $10 billion projection by Adam silver will be directly affected by this move Let's talk about something a little more happier if you are an NFL fan my goodness gracious the rating numbers for the NFL 16.6 million viewers per game through week 6 That's doing something Yeah there's a lot of reasons for that Number one there's some great new quarterbacks this year that are in so a lot of teams that didn't have a great deal of interest now do even with teams that just won their first game like Jacksonville You get Justin Fields with the Chicago Bears You get Matt Jones with the New England Patriots and on and on But I've been saying this for weeks this new all these new gambling apps that people have on their phones have all these different props before you just made a bet before the game I'm going to take the over or I'm going to take the jets and I'm going to take 7 and a half points Now you can go right to the final whistle till zero zero zero to say if he's the odds on the jets making a first down on this possession So people are watching games and they're hanging in there to the end of the games they're going past the click points which is where they measure the total audience for a game And I think this is a direct correlation between all these betting apps and the uptick in attendance We got to take a big shout out When your name is ty ty Washington you're doing good And you better be good And he is good Lindsay he did an IL deal with a Porsche dealership Yeah and he's on his Twitter account or Instagram I can't remember which one it was It doesn't really matter He wrote at this point right Yeah You're sitting in an $80,000 Porsche And this was my biggest fear when the same image and likeness came out There's going to be a huge chasm between the haves and the have nots and I think it's going to divide a lot of teams Yeah because the best players immediately will get all these deals and everyone else will be looking on from the side And at the end of the day they're all playing on the same team but one looks like professionally paid player and everyone else students Yeah one guy's driving an $80,000 force to practice three other guys are riding their bicycles Well when you're playing at Kentucky so obviously you have a high profile college that you're playing for I say shame on the car dealer What is the attraction to have a kid who's never played a game of college basketball yet and giving him an $80,000 car and some type of agreement That's some of these These are going to drive around town in that car Yeah yeah Yeah it's been on the back of it It's going to say you know Scarlett will poor come on down I'm sure Up next on the show we speak with Todd.

"We actually have some MBA news. We do. You got a little bit, not a ton, but we got a little bit to talk about. And then we'll hit on a couple of college topics, but let's start with John wall. The former number one pick, who is due $91.7 million over the next two years, including a player option for 47.4 million in 2022, 23. He was traded to Houston, he's been off injured over his last four years, only put a 113 games over that span and the Houston Rockets and John wall have basically agreed that, you know what? It's not in the best interest of either side that John wall played for the rockets. They're rebuilding. They think they're young. They've got some good young players. In fact, I think Jalen green, The Rookie that they took with the number two pick. I watched him enough in the summer league and I saw him enough in the G leagues. I think he's going to be a star. I think he's going to be rookie of the year. He fits the NBA. So they're saying like, we're going to build around those guys, you know, Christian wood, Jalen green, and John wall doesn't figure in. Now, I just don't know who's going to be a taker for John wall..

"Keith, let's start things off with John wall, a Houston rocket for now. But will not be a Houston rocket into the future. It sounds like he is going to be treatable. The rockets are hoping. They're hoping anyway. Let's get into that. What's going to happen here? The rockets, John wall working together to try to find a trade and he will not play any more games for Houston. Yeah, so this is that working together part is where it's very different from the 76ers and Ben Simmons who are not exactly working together. They're kind of working apart right now. So it sounds like by all accounts John wall has been very good in his time in Houston. He's been somebody that the younger players have really come to rely on for leadership. He's been a great leader for them. In the rockets are looking at insane. Look, we have a ton of guards that we want to play young guards to Kevin Porter junior, jaylen green, Josh Christopher, just adding in the last couple of years. Kyrie Thomas, who we picked up on a late season edition last year and he played quite well for them. So they want to play those guys. They don't necessarily want to play John wall, nor do they want to have John wall get hurt in kind of completely ruined maybe whatever little tiny modicum of trade value he may have left. There's no other way to slice this. It's 91.6 million. That he is owed. It's bad money. There's John wall would probably say at the same thing. Good for John wall for getting him what he did. And this is why you should never criticize a pointer for taking a max contract when it's offered to him. Team, other story we can have there. But at the time this contract was offered, wasn't necessarily as a bad contract. And either he's one of the first class of supermax guys to get it. So yeah, so what they're going to do is they're going to have them come to camp. He sounds like he's going to be there to kind of almost be like a glorified assistant coach.

And you know what else. I liked kobe. He stays on balance like so many times. A young player is out of control literally because they're off-balance. Look at that right. There that level of poise imbalance.

I think they're going to look to add pieces right now. They and the Pelicans are kind of in similar situations and that they have young star players that are ready to win, maybe a little bit earlier than than anybody was expecting. And so they're going to make some win now moves and see what they can do to to reach the next level. But yeah, you know, the maps they didn't do anything on draft night but nobody expected them to win. No pics. Yep. And again we're not going to blow. That's not the last time.

And so let's go to the Houston Rockets. Who today, the busy night did it for players in the first round. So they had already had three first-round picks. They, they went and traded for an extra one. So just as a cap for everybody, Jalen green with the second pick, then they traded for the 16th pick with Oklahoma City Thunder.

"Nike and Apple are among the U. S. Corporations have been lobbying Congress to weaken legislation that would ban the import of goods made with slave labor in Xinjiang. The NBA like Nike has struggled to reconcile its outspoken support for social justice causes. In the U. S, of course, with its cosy business ties to China. Its reluctance to criticize Beijing for human rights abuses. And ESPN investigation, published in 2020 found that NBA training academies in Ji Xiang were rife with complaints of physical abuse. And in 2019 when former Houston Rockets general manner Darrell Morley. Tweeted. Well, we know this story. About freedom for the people in Hong Kong, he was viciously attacked by LeBron James, who makes a fortune of Nike. Which makes a fortune of communist China. Which makes a fortune. On labor camp.

Pick a fifty two point one percent chance of winning a top four. Pick one of things that's relevant for the rockets is that if they don't get a top four pick in the draft. They must send their picked the oklahoma city thunder and so right now fifty two point one percent chance they pick it. It's it's really fifty fifty that the rockets even have their pick this year and thunder could potentially have to top five picks. And we'll talk about that a second when we get to the thunder but assuming for a minute that they get the number one pick in the draft. I have the number one on. Big board are sorry. I'm mock draft one point one km cunningham and i'll just say this about kate cottingham it is looking more and more likely that he is going to be the number one pick in any scenario that we can really think about it. Discuss right now he he. It seems like every team and scout. That i'm talking to the league has caved cunningham number one. I mean we'll see more on on lottery night on who actually gets the number one pick in which way it may go. But it's looking highly likely that cape cunningham is going to be the number one pick in the draft regardless of who draft where and certainly for the rockets. he fits indeed It's really a no brainer to have a versatile wing with his feel for the game and the way he can see the floor the way he can defend multiple positions. I think he's a no brainer for the rockets. But i could also say that about a lot of the other teams there so right now and mock draft one point one. The rockets get cade cunningham.

"So i'm here to see if they like those. Those the data those matchups on one thing about the rockets season that i wanna be able to point out. Is that if you're not making shots. It's hard for you to get your defense set against the opposing team. Biggest for the rockets take threes on making them long rebounds lead to transition opportunities. They have to get back in. Transition is a poor area for them when they are working on. But i'm eager to see if they can make shots what those possessions like when they are set in playing defense because they are showing flashes. Especially these guys like olympic in would being good on the ball but can they continue to show flashes and there's a basically good flashes of closeouts rotations doing things that will take them from a low tier defensive team to an average june above average defense team. The incident take some time for them. Stephen silas john lucas and will weaver. have great defensive principles people like to put in. But you know they need consistency. They need practice time. And i'm eager to see the as they kind of get a little bit more more represented in their kinda talking to the coaching staff. A little bit more before the games. Can we see those flashes. Continue to and from defense. It's a team together. Yeah yeah definitely. I think that's a great point to hit on as well. Because i think if i remember correctly Before crushing i'd injured they were just about the best defense in the league. Somewhere around there post the post are they were one. Yeah they were one of the best defense in the league especially n stood out in the especially early in the shot clock and they were especially good in the half court and so so that. That's that's good to see you know you had Depot here who really did help with that Primer defender. I'm you had guys come guard in stanford or man's i think as this team these young guys learn to play better defensively with her technique in their closeouts and everything much better. Most affluent will hang man. I really appreciate your taking the time coming on Do you have anything you wanna plug before we got here mean. I mean if you're listening you can follow me on twitter at rackets underscore insider. I also have rockets for one youtube. So any those two places the best way to reach me but mark. I appreciate you giving me a chance to come on. Always love talking xs and os. This has been fun most often enough to do it again some time. Of course everyone go follow everything.

"And he didn't he kind of didn't answer the question values says i've never. I've never said the word franchise cornerstone. Before i get even to answer to but you know he talked about having guys who could be able to help them compete championship. Things like that but the reason. I asked that question is because eager to see the rockets really think they have a franchise cornerstones superstar star potential superstar star player on this team. What is their time. Always bring his question. I brought this question of the entire season is christian. Would in your timeline. Is john wandered. What is your timeline. You have a couple twenty. Five year olds who are really good. You have a couple of twenty year olds are really good. Is your time on the next three years. Going back and competing for championships. Do you think you're that closely competing for championships. These are the types of questions. I hope they aren't thinking about. And if your rockets you wanted to think about because you know it's it's important to understand where the process it's like. I think this draft would give us a better idea of what type of player looking for. We have a general idea so far was stone in in some of their wings but this draft will give us a much better idea of what type of prospect looking. They have a new scouting department. They have a lot of great for an office. People who have stayed from the daryl morey era. I'm eager to see in that regard now to answer your question though. Do i think they have anybody. I've been the closest person who can be a potential franchise piece is kevin porter jr. i also think ag born stab. Good will be that good. But i think right now kevin porter jr. you have to obviously say him christian would is interesting to me. Does he take that leap into a star. Because i don't star yet. I think he's a great potential player. News really good and can eventually become an all star. Iffy state had all the and stuff like that and team was good. But can he become a star for you. A bone applied star. And if he can within the you know what i think. He kevin poor junior graded. Whoever you're able to drop to keep the traffic. But i think at this point i would. I do have to agree with you. Kevin porter gene young piece to be able to build upon his next few seasons. Give him a chance to grow and see what he can do for your vegetables. Yeah yeah i would agree with that in four and i think especially talking on timelines is so huge. Because i think so often. It's a toss up in the air and looking at a time wise and understanding player development like to have all across the board like that makes it murky for young players like okay. If you're really gonna invest time in trying to make as you martin a ball handler..

"Jay shaw works on a shot everyday. He's always working with assistant coaches namely john lucas on his shot on his form. Whenever you see him get in rhythm and on a corner three especially and quickly get the ball and knock it down no hesitation. Nothing are at odds or he's going to make it. Confidence is there where he struggles is when he hesitates even briefly and messes up. His form in the shot goes up and he missed out. I do think compared to where he was to start the season his shot as much better. It's much more fluid. You can see the in. The arkansas is is much better than what it was. I think it'll come down to let him continue to get wraps this regular season having continue proven the offseason. I think by next season. You're gonna see a consistent corner three point shot. We've seen flashed that seasonal ready. Yeah definitely i would agree with that. I think it's just kind of looking at it. A guy like not. It's easy to make the cop. And i'm not trying to bully in terms of shooting like marcus smart like it's just about finding the confidence because teams are willing to let you shoot if you're not gonna become new with it. Well yeah yeah. You know the marcus. Marcus i think is actually. I heard that. He has a great comparison. Especially because marcus smart. Even though we know he's such a risk defender he wasn't always the most terrific defender i mean. He was already great but he took a step from great to beat the dots. were jay. shawn's next step is as player is going from that great defender into newly defender where that's going to happen forming asked about this last week woman. Aj work can you improve upon defensively evaluate start. What can you do the first thing you mentioned closeouts. Because he's so good on the ball his next step will be. How can he turn into an elite off ball defender. He asked possessions. Defensively were hold tried to help in the corner and the clicker guy the perimeter Will see that in immediately beat him off the dribble if we if we have football fans you're listening. Think of jay sean. As a middle linebacker tacna gap and the offensive line. He's attacking the gap hard to stop the run and then whenever he sees a play action he a elite middle linebacker will be able to kind of adjusted to fly and give back into coverage. That's j. shawn's nextstep. Being able to not slow down get back and move his feet effectively. He's already great kind of moving his feet against most perimeter players but off those close at especially when he's in helped position in that in especially kind of off the pass. I'm eager to see him. Continue to develop their and become a better. That's gonna kinda get him into that. Marcus marcus. Smart level comparison. Yeah yeah definitely. I mean it sounds like like again. It's easy to tribeca. Come now but like legitimacy him making all defense if he's able to improve aspects like he's not just positions sound like the events creation is there I mean you could ask opposing players like he is everywhere on court just a joy to watch man like i seriously like i i know that the the rockstar not go but i always find time to wash every week because i know jay. Sean tastes playing in like. That's that's enough for me to sign up for at least fifteen or twenty minutes man. You know. I'm so. I'm so happy for him that he's getting recognition he is..

Butler Boosts the Baylor Bears To Beat the Houston Rockets

"Were your thoughts on Thursday our Houston before we move into the big one that before the bad guy. I think that Davion Mitchell is such an annoying Defender. I mean that and the highest respect regard he he just forced his players into badge. Even when they make it and one of the announcement a game in that the first Final Four game said don't take it personally and it's so true. He had backpacks were steals. He reached in his slit its feet and cut his manage charges flops. You don't know what you're really going to get out of those guys offensively one of these players that Jean gerow was writing some hot streak for Houston into the tournament back to spike the score a little bit and then you look at the box score. He's three for 10 with six points and five turnovers. Those are the type of games that they be on Mitchell can force you into having agreed with you how good he was was offensively zero turnovers against a team in Houston that wants to speed you up and make bad decisions is semi incredible and the game really was over by halftime and it was just how much can this deficit be cut into and there is no looking back. Jerry Butler was great 17.6 of nine shooting for free from 3 a guy that just never seems really sped up even wage. Trapped he was under control. He was composed and without Marcus after having 17 points in the first half that game could have been way worse, which is crazy to say.

Boston Celtics vs Houston Rockets Highlights

"Is a cakewalk. This is fun. This is get you get you right feeling about yourself sort of game kind of got the makings of start of one of those tough like this almost felt like that Toronto game right before the break wear like there's no earthly reason why they should wage. Close yet. It was Houston was making everything Celtics D wasn't great a lot of open threes and then literally just Houston just flipped the off switch and that way that was literally off during the second quarter sharrod there like yep work done. And that would be it Celtics run who was over. Yeah. I mean at some point they realized that wait a minute. Where the Houston Rockets right? Yeah, we're not that good. What the hell are we doing here? This is this is screwed up our chances to get a number one pick Let's just kill Pat and just play the way we can play off. I'll say this is what the Celtics I thought the one thing that they did that frustrated the hell out of me from the jump was the two bigs line of and then I'm not taking advantage of that either player wings and beat the crap out of these guys. They use those two bags and beat them to death around the rim and it over as a game progressed. They started training in that direction was great to see but but very outside I was really frustrated at this game because I knew he's multiple clear advantages and they were just like nah, we're just going to just come run around for a little bit and just let them get their shots off and then at some point before half-time we'll figure out where they do better team and play like it. Well, yeah, and so should I tell you I doubt you've you know, I don't know how many of these you've ever watched or gotten any whiff of anything we do, but if you don't stop me, I'm going to talk about Rob Williams for twenty five straight minutes log. It's just it's just what I do. So what was interesting tonight when they did go away from the two big lineup they went to a clearly a one big lineup and that rotation. I'm going to talk about Rob Ad nauseam in a dog cuz he had a near perfect game tonight. And again Houston was totally undermanned. But I don't know that you can do anything better than rub what Rob Williams did it tonight? But it was interesting that Tyce was the guy who was kind of thing on the outside here. There's some games that should happen. Yeah, I think if if you're going to go with the two big line of years is is just a real radical thought how about just plain to Biggs. I think one of the problems that Brad has he's trying to play all three of those guys every night and there's some nights we're ties I think should be out there and maybe less Rob and less trust and sometimes I've been more Tristan sometimes I think more bread has to figure out of those three which to do. I need to have their asses on a core more than not and tonight was a clear example where you have a team that is under man and under talented as a Houston Rockets go with the young fellow wage. You're running for and swipe anything within five feet of the rim, and he did that and it worked out exceptionally. Well, and again Rob Williams, we've always talked about the potential but what we're seeing now is consistency on top of the potential. That's why he's out there playing more and that's why if the Celtics are ever going to break through that top three upper echelon in the East Rob Williams going to be a big part of that. Well, what is interesting. This is the first one in Jimmy. I want your thoughts to this is the first game I came down. I got to go back where Rob had the most minutes now very well could be an asteroid makes a good point. I mean why why playoff games every game cuz we've seen Brad get away from it with at other positions like he goes games without playing semi, he goes games. Playing Nesmith Teague. I am not saying that theis is really like on that Teague level. Obviously, it's not they are talented players to the point where you want to try to get them in but there are games where you gotta ride the hot hand and it's been robbed lately and we need to see more and more and more and and obviously me and John have been banging that drum for What fields Month now but it's starting to see it like Rob's getting in the game more like you should but he's staying in for the reasons that we've seen tonight some of the passes he was making on guys cut into the rim or they're the tip like like that alley-oop to him. That was like a not a great pass like the touch that he has around the rim now the little turns a little floaters like that's why he's staying in the game. It's not just because he can go up a trip down boards and block shots. And I mean even some of the blocks and they were like controlled blocks when he was actually like blocking it and then grabbing it and you know, making the outlet pass

Sportswriter Zach Lowe on NBA Mid-Season Leaders

"Where. We are at the midway point of the nba season. And that means. I have questions for you about the utah jazz. I say the utah jazz to you. Right now what comes to mind a whole lot of threes there making these every time you know checkup jazz box score at my brain just glances over twenty two thousand from three leg. It's just nothing there number two in defense in number three or something in offense. They do profile as championship contender. Like they're the best team in the league by record right now. Are they the best team in the league to you. While the comparison that that's become sort of commonplaces they're they're the new sixty win hawks. The team that was built to win a lot of games regular season pretty ball movement side to side movement. You don't really have the star power to compete against lebron james when it comes down to it in the playoffs but i don't think they're just sort of blake a regular season flute so the way the jazz are playing right now. It reminds me not just of the hawks as you said but also a kind of mutant version of the houston rockets simply because of the sheer volume of threes. Does that comparison sounded all right and also does that comparison than invite the questions about what happens in the postseason. If shooting a bunch of threes doesn't go as well as it did in the regular season. That comparison does not ring true to me honestly just stylistically. They're so different. The volume of threes is similar. Like they are taking a houston. Daryl morey level volume of threes. But they play so differently. The other comparison is brad stevens. I think the first one to give voice to this is to two thousand fourteen spurs which is kind of like. That's that's i don't want to say that out loud well to an mba hipster fan to an emmy afficionados. Let's put it that way kinda sewer. What does that specific spurs team. What does that evoke in your memory. It almost has this sort of religion. Level reverend yes. Everybody loved watching that team. Anybody who was at games three to five of the finals that year when by the beginning of game four we were all looking at each other. Like all my god. They're just going to destroy the heat and to compare any team to where that team reached. It just feels like talking to a pitcher in the seventh inning of a no hitter. Something like you just don't want to say out loud but that is a comparison. People are making looked at jazz. Their undoing in the playoffs in in previous seasons was day would very much like the hawks. Actually day would get a lot of open threes and not make them and you could look at that and say well. We did everything right. We just didn't make shots. Which is what. Every hawks team including that one said after the playoffs. And so yeah. The three point volume is similar to the rockets. And that's a little scary. The team that this discussion has occurred in the context of is the lakers. As you said as it must be the defending champions and so when you look at the lakers right now. I want to get to lebron specifically in a second but just them without anthony davis and how much they've struggled most recently losing to these jazz and blow out. What is that revealing to you or confirming to you about what this team needs to actually content. I think like any team. They need their best players to be healthy. I i'm pretty low on the lakers panic meter because it's not just anthony. Davis who you know was first team all nba hill assures. Anthony davis is not like some borderline all the best players in the league. Dennis schreuder is maybe their third best player. I think kyle kuzma is kind of the claim that mantle disturbing might be their third most important player. Because he's the only other guy. With the exception of some frisky alex russo games entail. Norton tucker will get you some. You know some stuff done now and then but he's learned other on ball creator the other the other guys threat to score or pass to somebody else. Yeah you take them away and it's like oh my god. Lebron has to do everything and and you know he's probably getting a little tired and even though he'll never say it the only thing that will make my panic meter go above like three point. Five on a one to ten is if we get news. At davis's injury is lingering or more serious that we thought it was then if they're healthy in the playoffs yeah. Competition in the west is is probably better this year. Particularly if denver finds whatever gear they had going in the bubble. There's going to be a lot of really good teams in the west. You could get the one seed in the west and play the warriors. You could get to play the mad. I mean it's it's just every round is hard there. But yeah i i can't i can't get too worked up about it right now. Yeah the western conference meet

Where Will DeMarcus Cousins End Up?

"Brings me to the demarcus cousins story. Out of houston. It's a strange story cousins having a solid year on a non-guaranteed deal february. Twenty seventh is when non-guaranteed deals either have to be guaranteed for the rest of the season or the player has to be released on friday. It was guaranteed early by the houston rockets. Then on saturday the reports that houston was gonna release him. Okay everyone said you know what they're doing. Demarcus cousins right teams agents around the league see moves like that where you pay a player for his time and people respect it so i start reading stories about demarcus cousins and why he struggled a little bit in houston defensively. How he's not part of the future on the athletic that totally mates sense. But that on sunday. When everybody's thinking is he gonna. The link is going to the nets. Well rockets coach. Stephen silas was asked. Is marcus cousins with the team. Is he leaving the team. Note here and he's going to be here for the foreseeable future so it sure looks like the rockets will release him at some point if they can't get an asset back in trade that can't get a second round pick back for demarcus cousins from whether it's the nets or the lakers but i think he will be joining another team and i for one think it should be the lakers. I think he'll get exposed on the nets because they're not a great defensive team and they will want him to be something really good defensively something which he isn't at this point he'll get exposed like to switch a lot. He'll just be out on an island way too much while with the lakers. They're already a good defensive team. They won't ask him to do too much and he was there last year so i think he can take a bit of a lesser role and be okay with that and they can get him the ring that he should have got before they released him last season l. A.'s the better option for me.

Portland Trail Blazers lose another starter, can’t sustain hot first quarter, fall 104-101 at Houston Rockets

"Start with the blazers any rockets. The first game of the tnt double header on thursday houston is a team. I find it hard not to cheer for. I'm in the corner of john. Wall demarcus cousins and victor oladipo may because they suffered huge injuries in the past major surgeries. And i'm an empathy guy. I wanna see them recover. I wanna see them fight battle. Get back to their old sells like john wall said after the game everybody on this roster has something to prove. Those three guys have been cast off by the role teams. It's a good story but at the same time they have suffered major injuries. They've got a guy on their roster. Who's young spry and should be dominating. The league at the center spot christian would is playing well this year but i think he should be featured a little bit more. He only had twelve shots against the portland. Trailblazers that usage rate should be. Hi you're he. Is that good now. The rockets won this game. They're down twenty early to the blazers. They came back the blazers shooting because they love to shoot their last in the league in points in the paint. The shooting almost overcame their defensive. Problems they just allow too many buckets. The rockets have full strength though. Should have beat this blazers team up bad c. J. mecom still out. He's out for at least a couple more weeks. Yousef nurkic also out for the blazers. I in this game shouldn't have gone down to the wire i'm sure. Tnt would beg to differ with that. They had a game. Go down to the wire. It was exciting but this rockets team needs to find the right hierarchy It's it's an interesting balance. Victor oladipo going into a contract year. I think should be operating a little bit.

"houston rockets" Discussed on Scoops with Danny Mac

"Shape and i wanna see also the power structure within that organization. Now specifically with those three you know obviously. Kd's the elsa but how will correa just harden and how hard and adjusts to career because all three of those guys are excellent with the ball in their hands. i did. There's a lot to unpack here and as you alluded to with with kyrie irving as well. But let's start with hard in. Houston what what went wrong jordan houston because for for casual fans even or even you know fans that are plugged into the nba. They haven't gotten over the hump. And daryl morey heads to philly but I think for most people. This disgruntled situation seemed to kind of come out of nowhere. Yeah but it wasn't. It hadn't been building. And i think you know the the rockets had so for so long. Obviously durham more was there and antoni was there and hardened excelled when d'antoni really made him the focal point of the offense by giving him the ball and and giving him the keys and hard and excelled within that structure. But at the same time. You know james if you think about who was there with him. you know. Obviously chris paul and then westbrook. Now john wall there's a perception now that has been building throughout the nba. That you know harden is someone that is enormously talented but the also extremely hard to play with and he has a big ego has a lot of stars do and he felt like the rockets and him had maxed out. I think probably two years ago and then also with westbrook that when he got dealt that he didn't particularly want john wall to be his his robin And that's the best they could do with westbrook. I don't know if james harden was ever going to be happy though in that organization. I felt like you over the last couple of years. Things had gone more and more south than within. Tony no longer being there. He didn't have someone that he that he necessarily trusted at the same level And he didn't he didn't hold out but he made it very clear that he has been doing. He has been you know doing this over the last couple of years where he makes these comments and then you know he kinda disappeared for a week or two week not not physically but mentally. He's just not there where you feel like okay. James harden just doesn't want to be here anymore and he's not committed to the process and i think As that happened over the last two years the organization became very very frustrated with him specifically the fact that he would go in and out of shape and basically make these declarations as he did a couple of days ago. Like we can't fix this so it's been building and it really came to a boiling point. you know when when he said it's it's no longer fixable bro. Those like pictures. And i know that lord knows that that i don't even have any good angles. I've got all bad angles on on camera. But the keys mass. Yeah it's it's horrible. It's horrible and and the tucked in warm up doesn't really make ads about eight to ten. It looks bad. It looks bad. I think i think he also like there's so many layers here like okay for him not to be in shape is nothing new. You know like i. I've seen him play in the summer. You know the the black ops run were or he's clearly ten twelve pounds overweight. And that's and that's fine. That's the summer but he doesn't give himself in shape going into the like he. He uses training. He plays his way into it. Yeah yeah and at this stage in his career you know thirty years old thirty one. You can't do that anymore. you really shouldn't do that when you're twenty three but you really can't do it now and and just look at some of the elite truly elite players in the league that are on his level. You know lebron jaanus. These guys collide. They are consistently in great shape and they take it. It's a full year deal with them. Hard does not do that and for him to show up. Fifteen twenty pounds overweight for an nba season is just laughable in and it also to me is is signs of a bigger issue which is really commit to him long term. And that's why actually was a little bit surprised at brooklyn mayor trade and gave up as much as they did. Including you know karassyn and jared allen so i'm. I'm really curious to see what happens with with harden their in brooklyn but i think yeah your point he he he has not been in shape and you know he had three games under twenty points shooting thirty seven percent and part of that's attitude but also he's just not mentally there and i wonder like big picture what this means for the nba. I think a lot of people were happy for the league. In general from milwaukee when john has signed the extension with the box especially after they gave up what they gave up to acquire jrue holiday and it just seems like at some point over the last handful of years. If a superstar wants to request a trade he holds all the cards. He has all the leverage now. Houston got a hall in return like you said. But what does this mean for the league jordan. And what does this mean especially for. I'm not gonna call houston astros but in terms of like big time cities to plan. It's probably not on the list with miami new york chicago. La so what does what does this mean going. Forward the president that sets well backtracking to your point about milwaukee jaanus stayed and i had you know said this they they they really internally believe that he was gonna stay i. I wasn't necessarily surprised. They don't make that trade otherwise exactly and they don't walkie is one of the smallest markets in the league and for them to retain you know one of the top three players in the world long-term is is a really really big deal So on the heels of that with harden saying i want to. I want out of houston. I'm not sure how much it means for the lead because players this has been a trend over the last decade. I called the lebron era. You know they you. We've seen players forced their way out of different cities even big cities Big big franchises. So i'm not necessarily sure it changes that but what it does do. Is it it points. Bigger light on the fact that someone like james harden who has been through a tremendous amount of negativity right like if the perception it is hard is great players that were one thing for him to still have that kind of power with an ownership. That has obviously been there a long time and a new head coach and stephen silas for them to say Wanna we're going to give into your needs. James despite the fact that you have not really been there for us right. That says more tuning isn't necessarily the market thing but just the fact that the players hold so much power and over the last decade. And it's only going to increase. They really do. And i'm in favor of that but when i'm not in favor of is james harden and You know players being accountable and you know going back to cairo like i. I hate how we've been attacking his character as a person. But there's no question that. Cairo has not been accountable for his actions and similar with with harden. Like when you're at that level when you're gonna pay thirty plus million dollars max deal. You have to be accountable. And so that's that's the disappointing. I think Hardened clearly there's going to be a tremendous amount of pressure on him now to perform in brooklyn because this is what he wanted. And if he doesn't play greats not good but great He's gonna come out as a big loser here. A couple more minutes of jordan schultz of espn. You can follow him on twitter at schultz underscore report which i recommend highly. And you know jordan. The flip side of that and i've been talking about it. The last couple of weeks in baseball right like teams like the raise even the cubs right now who are carrying reportedly a billion dollars in debt. They are a blue chip franchise with strong ownership that has invested. Who knows how much money into that team and the infrastructure around the city of chicago and wrigleville but like they're having to sell because they can't commit financially and they're having to sell low on assets you see now in the nba. The nets the clippers giving away future assets and future cost controlled assets like those draft picks are worth big cash in terms of the cap and and rookie.

"It's kind of great actually to be able to get going right away and get on the road and start playing some games.
