"Of here. Jordan season win totals were posted in Vegas this week for the upcoming season. You got one or two that jumped out at you if you had a chance to look at him. Yeah, I'm so glad you brought this up because right now as we speak, I'm actually writing an article making five picks for these over under totals. And you know a couple that I'm looking at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers over an 11 11.5 wins you get plus money there. It's plus 100 at this point in time, they won 11 games last year, and you could argue that their regular season wasn't that successful. I mean, they got swept by the New Orleans Saints. That's not gonna happen again with Drew Brees now retired, So that's an interesting one. I'm looking at a lot of the NFC West as well. I know that's the toughest division in the NFL. But what about the Los Angeles Rams over 10.5? That's that, plus money as well. We know this defense will this team to a tenant six record last year. But pairing the offensive minded guru Sean the division with a veteran signal caller with a big arm, and Matthew Stafford. That's a big upgrade. I love that marriage. I think that makes him better immediately now for the unders. There is one I'm looking at, and it's a little bit of a flyer. I'll give you that. But the Detroit Lions under five Yes, on Lee going four and I guess would be 13 in the regular season. I think that's a possibility. Have major questions about Jared got. They lost both of their top one White house and their defense was absolutely atrocious Last season. I love Dan Campbell. He seems like a coach who could be you could build a good culture. But I'm not sure how many kneecaps his squad will be biting off from here. Once you go. There you go. Jordan is Johnny CBS sports dot com. Hey, Jordan really appreciate the insight. Keep up the great work. Sean, You're the man. Have a good show. Appreciate it. Thank you very much. Jordan. Appreciate that. All right, s Oh, there you go under on Detroit. I thought for sure he's going to say under on the Texans feel like every guest that I asked that. He's going to say under five on the Texans, Justo get under my skin, if no if for no other reason and over on the Rams and over on the bucks, plus money on both of those right now. Interesting, interesting your thoughts on that. You're on hold. Stay there. If you want to grab a line, call 855 to 1 to 4 to 27 to get in on the show. It's bottom of the hour. It's time for sports Update Here's Pete McCarthy. See me? Yes. Where sports flag. Oh, Shawn.

What's going on with the New Orleans Pelicans?
"This year's deputy f team the new orleans pelicans. I don't know what baker this team you can catch them on any given night and it's a completely different experience than the last night. I don't know if the players make sense together. Actually i'm pretty sure they don't. I don't really know what the overall philosophy is. I don't know if they're trying to be a playoff team if they're trying to be rebuilding. I'm just constantly confused and there are some optimism because they want a couple of games around people here they go here. Zion and then they get killed last night by the bulls and have one hundred thousand breakdowns. And i guess my first question to you is the pelicans what the fuck you. How many exclamation points can we tack onto that. Wt fd think. But i was hoping you could answer this question. Because i think you're spot on in that it's so much depends your view of this team on when you catch them even just like what stage in the season. You caught them because for a minute. It looked like they were going to live up to their personnel and be a tough minded offensive team. Scrounging out offensive rebounds to get points and just kinda struggling on that in because they're spacing issues the script has completely flipped. And now this is all of a sudden very competent offense. I think park has really driven by brandon. Ingram is i ion williamson. They're making that part of it work but the defense. Jesus christ i mean it is. There is inconsistent defensively as really any team out there. Yeah i would say other than brooklyn. It's the team that's most likely to give up one hundred forty on any given night to any team. That knows what they're doing. I so if you actually look at their stats and you haven't been watching that much and you look at the stats and you look at williamson in ingram and all right. Those guys are having good years pretty efficient. And then you look at lonzo and you look at bledsoe. Lonzo shoot thirty seven percent from three so she and forty percent so going into the season like well. Their guards can't shoot. They're not going to be able to have enough space. Well their guards are actually shooting. Okay but then. When i watch everybody together. I don't have a five-man line-up that i liked like yesterday. They're playing Kyra lewis with He he got a little more run and he's really interesting. Rookies really fast. He's little darren foxy and gave them an energy that i was like. Well maybe this. Maybe i would like this version of the pelicans more. If fast you know now unleash sign a little bed. Go up and down a little bit more. But i still don't know who the other two teammates would be with cairo. Lewis design and branding. And i guess the fundamental question for me is do zion and brandon. Ingram makes sense together on a team. That's actually trying to win the title. I think they make sense on offense but the question was i on really broadly. As who are you going to put the five that's gonna make up for all. He doesn't do defensively right now. That's always been my issue with the idea of playing small and we are putting him at the five his rotations is. Aren't there really the pelicans as a team. If i were an opposing coach. I would say this is a team. We can beat him rotation every they are. Pass away from defensive breakdown every time out on the floor and keep moving the ball. You keep doing what you're supposed to do they will they will mess up in a whether it's undersized guy in the corner doesn't quite rotate over all the way. Jj radic or josh. Hart they try hard. They do what they can. But they're not equipped to be helped rotation defenders. If a guy like zion isn't going to be one so i mean i'm i'm kinda bullish on the anger rooms ion depot in general but i am really struggling to see how you put together those lineups. I can see how they kind of got into this conundrum where they clearly wanted to have some veterans early. Some veterans fell into their lap in terms of what was available and trying to get some pics and make their other moves but long term. It's a weird team to build with. And then you get lonzo into this conversation to and what they want to do with him. It's it's kind of messy.
What to watch in all five NBA Christmas Day games
"Sick it up to let's go to the nba Who went from the players stating they weren't gonna play till january and the league. Say you're going to play at christmas and the players saying no.

"Hey, the Blazers Open up the door for you a little bit today lost the tough one game they could have gotten against the Clippers. They did not sow. The pelicans is still on the outside looking in. But they're still in the mix. They've got to spurs, the Kings and the Magic left. That's not a killer schedule. Ah, well, yes, it will all find out before Friday. Who's getting in Who's not getting in? They do have a chance to almost control their own destiny. With the three games they got lead left through the pelicans, not Right. And the thing is, there's no more room for error. You know, letting the Utah game get away when you're winning and up 16 points in that game and then going out to get the Sacramento Kings and Laying eggs, allowing Sacramento 49 points in the 4th 1st quarter and 140 for the game. Now there is no more room for error. Then Antonio Game tomorrow is a huge game because it's a one game swing either way. So, basically, if you're the pelicans ballpark, it has to be from here on out. We can't afford to lose another game. So you have to go three a note from here on out because there are two things that you still have to jump over even to get to know him. Not even talking about eight Would Mitt. You still gotta get past Antonio and you still got to get past important to even get to nine. But now with the schedule, it's not a difficult obviously, Tomorrow's game is huge. But you're talking about Sacramento, and you're also talking about the Orlando Magic. But there is zero room for error. You cannot afford to lose another game. All right, Which gets us to Ah man's Ion Williamson, who's been flashing certain plays certain things that are all n ba like here in the tail end of his truncated rookie year. He has yet to play 25 minutes in any of the return games and their varying reports. Why that is the case. You tell me, is it Mohr? Because of injury and the risk of re injuring or severely coming up with an injury. Or is it conditioning that they just don't think that Diane could go? 30 plus man? Well, you know when the restart When it started back up. And they were in the ramp up period. He had a family emergency that forcing the league above it. And he left a bubble for eight days. And in the eight days he was basically an active So then, once you're inactive for a day, and then you come back, and then you have to be corn king for another four days because it was an excused absence. Now what you're saying is that 12 days Of NBA basketball practice of scrimmaging of strength and conditioning work that he meant So what you don't want to do in any professional support situation is jeopardized the future for the Prince. And if he's an active for 12 days what you don't want to do is throw him right back out there and read him up for 30 minutes. And slowly, but surely they brought him along. He played 25 minutes in the in the game again. Who was it? Sacramento. 25. No. Wasn't Sacramento in the missus game? I believe itwas so he plays what he but he's only played 74 minutes total and four games in the bubble. So now the thing is, there are no more back to back. You have sent Antonio Sunday. You know, then you have Sacramento Tuesday and you have Orlando Thursday. There are no more back to back so it'll be interesting to see how his minutes progress as all three of these games are incredibly important, and obviously he's needed on the floor. Guy was getting a lot of credit and well, he should Brendan in grown for the success of the pelicans this year. Certainly his game has blown up here in his first season out of L. A Let me have that. Asked about another guy who came in a big deal for Anthony Davis Nets. Lando ball, I've seen the pelicans Flight 20 plenty, but not night in and night out. Not every game. You see them every single game. How much is Langil Ball improved here in this year? And you know this is a tough conversation tohave now because he has really struggled in the bubble. But prior to being in that bubble Lonzo ball in the rhythm and the confidence that he was playing with on a nightly basis, he was extending quickly. And in the hiatus come, and in that four months, four months off, you know the Kobe Everything hit and now you kind of have to restart back up. And what you've seen from Alonzo in this bubble is not the same Lonzo that we saw in March. Or in February or in January, so he has to find his rhythm, But he needed a change of scenery, and this is a perfect place, opportunity and style of basketball for him. He's running with guys who skills that compliment his perfectly. You know, Diane is a wonder Jacquet is a runner, Brandon Ingram is a runner. Daisy Reddick is a spacer. So you have these guys. Alonso is a passport, die constantly looking to make the right play and he's perfect system for him to be the best version of himself. He is just yet. We have not found it confidence yet in the bubble that he had prior to the NBA being postponed a couple of questions for our guests. Ah, talking N ba pelican specific because Antonio Daniel says their games but I do want to get to men be a question tin with him as well. Ben Simmons injury for the Sixers. Not only is going to take him out of the short term playoffs don't know if he can come back, and it could be one of those injuries. That becomes a long term thing. Ben's been an enigma. I'm Ah Philly guy and I watch all these games and have to talk about him all the time. They're trying to change his position on the fly here at a bar. Going into the playoffs. What is Ben Simmons? If not for the year, let's say never gets back. What is he at the start of the 2021 season come December. You know what? Joey asked there from day one, and I said that years ago, I thought that bin with today the way today's NBA structure, he is a power forward. I always felt like they were playing him out of position. That's why the constant talk of the three point shot. It's such an issue. Because he's playing the point guard position. If you put him in a position to still make point guard like plate because he has a very bog at very high basketball, I Q and a very unique skills it with the size and ability to pass it back. Double this because you have that don't mean that you have to play the point guard position. You can put him in his Raymond Green role where you're using him as the screener. And then he's making place out of the pick and roll. He can take the ball off the glass and pushing himself. But I think there's so much more pressure on him to become a three point shooter. When he is lined up and conducting and running. You're off. You put him at the power forward position. People aren't tripping on the three points at no more. They can move in a 15 feet. You know, he can put it up in the dunker spot, you know, so I felt from day one that been him, and even though he has a very unique skill set for his side was being played out of position. While all those things you say are correct the big question then becomes in Simmons at the fore. Can he play with them Be to those two game skills mess If you're not gonna have Ben Simmons out on the perimeter. Yeah, because I think you can put Ben Simmons almost in a dumper spot behind the glass. They're different places places to hide him on from the foul line. It's different when you are starting to offense and you're feeding the post and you're out past the three point line. People are going to respect you out there, but they still have to respect his agility, his ability to pass the basketball and his athletic ability. So if you put him in a dumpster spot or hide him behind the glass put him in that 57 foot area is tough to double team off. You put him out his entry point line, You're going to leave him out there and live with the results. That's why you need somebody like Mills. And I have this thing about Philadelphia 76. Miss shooting. They make they really they remarkable Nellie there, Mr Leo Soba. They missed guys to space the floor and give them to him in space and gives you Ellen beats base. Because when you have not shooters, the floor gets really small, really fast, especially in today's NBA, which is dear to based on patients. I had tend to agree with John, Not one. Alright, We're talking to our buddy Antonio Daniels. Serious Hector men be radio host and call it TV analyst for the Pelicans. No, your West guy Since you're doing the Pelican Games. I was surprised by the return and I know it's only a handful of games and you shouldn't judge by such a small sample size, but The East is actually impressed me since they've come back. Boston, Toronto, Miami, Of course, the Bucks of the best, But ah, the 2 to 4 teams, even Indianapolis sons..
Some NBA players sit out the season
"Okay, Let's talk about the MBA there beginning this week in Orlando in Florida, which is a co vivid nightmare at this point. Some players air sitting it out, or they just saying I'm not going to play because I'm afraid of getting covered. Yes, Some players were sitting out because of family members that are at risk. Some players were just sitting out because they're not going to do it. You got key members of Seems like the Clippers, you know mantra. Is Harold sitting out Patrick Beverley sitting it out. You know, these are key elements of members of a lot of teams are saying, Hey, I need to Protect my family and protect myself and that's responsible. But then you've got other members of the Clippers like Lou Williams, who actually went back to Atlanta for a funeral. And then was photographed at a strip club with a rapper. He posed the rap, proposed it to his instagram, and then he quickly deleted it. And then he came out and said, Hey, that was an old picture of me and Lou Williams. I love him so much. I want to do it. But in the picture Lou Williams was wearing an N B a sanctioned mask. You know the way people were Matt five years ago that the MBA sanctioned know that he got busted in this thing. So now the Williamses basically quarantined for 10 days. He can't play in the first couple of games back. He just can't play in the 1st 2 games, one of them against the Lakers. So it affects the team and what the N B A is saying, you know, they had a squeaky clean record. They just recently tested everyone and had zero positive tests inside the bubble, But some players have to leave the bubble stars Ion Williamson, who's the big stars Big rookie star from the New Orleans Pelicans. He had to leave for a family emergency. A health emergency if you and they ask for permission to leave, if you ask for permission to leave than you have Ah, four day quarantine when you come back into the bubble and you get tested, But if you leave and you violate the rules, it's a 10 day quarantine and this is going to affect games. As we move forward as we're trying to set up, you know the best possible scenario where the teams are playing at full strength. This is going to affect

"Thank you bill. This some people do that. I don't know I don't know what his healing mechanism is. That might be it so now you are off but I want to get back to you. You've been covering leave for far too low. What did you call it back win? Stars set out a few games towards the end of the season. First of all we did. We call the preparation for the play. Offs is what we call it. Well that's good about a negative thing. Keiko his preparation for the playoffs. Because it's still February. And because that was what you said end of the season right well. They got a big league next next week. It's march careers all right. Let's move to Houston where the rockets just handed. Jaama rant and the grizzlies a massive one forty one loss with the rookie scoring just twelve points. Meanwhile Zion Williamson just had himself a game against Lebron and the Lakers dropping twenty nine and a tightly contested loss earlier. This week John appeared to have a lock on rookie of the year. But Zion lived up to the hype since his debut and has clearly been outplaying jaw in the short time. He's been on the court. Chris Design deserve a shot at of the year despite missing so many games. Look just he's putting up Gaudy numbers and let me say this. I spoke with the Pelicans spoke with Alvin Gentry. They believe that if he could seems this trend and plays throughout the remaining games of the regular season. He should have a shot at winning rookie of the year. Now I agree that he should have a shot at being in contention but you cannot give wimps in the rookie of the year after playing thirty seven games. That's the most he can play the rest of the season. The other the guy who won the war with the amount gained four. Patrick you in nineteen eighty six fifty games. Jamarat has been there from start to finish how he turned his memphis franchise. Arale really not a true of veteran guy in that locker room. He's kind of assume that role of being a leader point guard and doing doing on a court. It's hard for me to say somebody who ninety play half the season that they should get. That were job. I think it sets a bad precedent if that happens philosophically. I won't have a problem with Zion Williamson winning rookie of the Year award. If Jaama rant wasn't in the way because Zions been posted good numbers if you look at. How many wins the? Pelicans have had. I think it's like fifth best in the league since his return but John has been so consistent throughout the season and at the beginning of the year. Everyone was kind of assuming the grizzlies. We're going to be a lottery team. No there are legitimate playoff team mostly because Aja and and he's filling across the board. He same guys up on all fence. He's performing highlight reels. And he's a real gym rat and a guy that wants to study film. She has all really the Fundamentally Fundamentals Down Pat. So you have less of a problem with the thirty seven games and more of a problem with the fact that John Moran has balled out and serves it over him exactly. I am one hundred percent with you as far as Shama rant is going to get my vote now. We all three have votes right. He's John Moran is getting my vote but I dare say I could seize Ion Williamson winning this because you guys know the immediacy of what's happening here John Rant and the Memphis Grizzlies are facing the toughest schedule in the NBA. We could see them plummet. We could see a lot more nights like we saw from jaw with twelve points nine nine assists and we could see these huge numbers and the Pelicans vaulting into that eighth playoff spot so when you look at our fellow voters first of all are you guys. Are you definitive as I am? The John Moran is getting your vote. Is there any way that thirty wiggle room? There chlorine and injure on Israel bar or something that's going to keep him out for the rest of the season I to me. It sets a bad precedent. Look I'm in the minority? I felt some type of way wins. Zion got into the the the rookie. What they call it a game now. Rising Stars play two games. He played two guys but again he was a star. Both career people want to see him play. I get that. That's why I had a real put that to the hastings. I thought but this is the rookie of the year rookie of the year. Not Rookie up thirty seven games rookie of the year. So if we were to give him that war even though he's putting up numbers and getting all bad press let the counter to that is there is no minimum that has been set by the NBA. If you WANNA have it that way then there should be a minimum to say you have to play. Patrick Ewing won it. He played fifty games. However you want to set it whatever number you want to set up but the reality is there is no number there. And if the case can be made that Zion Williamson in thirty seven games did more than John Mirant for the Memphis Grizzlies. In however many games he ends up playing. Are You not doing Zion Justice by saying that he deserves rookie? Mike and definitely changed towards indices. Man as a right now. I just can't see him. Get My vote. I can't change it because of job. Haram philosophically. I have no problem the fact that he missed forty four games because I can't think of any other contenders in this rookie class. That's that would have a chance. He wasn't up to this level. And there's nobody else up for contention. Yeah I mean I I get.

What do you believe they have to get it done to offset all of the supremos? You threw out there about Purdue. I think Jordan mos- going to be the king Jordan, bone his ability to defend Carson, Edward's bones. Been like kinda to me the guy that makes things go for Tennessee. He's aggressive offensively. Maybe the most productive point guard in the in the SEC. But it's defensively. He's got to do a good job of not allowing Carson Edwards get going early. If he does that Tennessee is gonna win if he's unable to do that produce gonna win this game. Purdue Purdue has great bap. And the other thing is the bench of Tennessee. Hennessy's benches at times disappeared. They've gotta get something out of their bench for them to win. Coach to meet a game of the week in his UNC, Auburn that's what I'm looking at. I mean, I'm loving this game right now because I remember how often handle their business consistency in the SEC championship game. But I'm looking at them right now, they were able to beat Kansas. All right and beat them handily beat them by about fourteen. How good is this orbiting how much of a threat are they to the North Carolina? Tar heels tar heels ROY Williams Kansas into Kansas. You know, we all that. We can't just we think Kansas is depleted. No, don't ask a book, you know, she'll be able to Sousa. No literal Vic, and then they graduated for guys. So I mean, the total different look Auburn. They create chaos if they can create chaos, and then turn you over and get out in transition and shoot their threes. They're very good because they get in the half court. They're not a very good half-court defensive team the other hand, you don't mind North Carolina. They're going to run. But it wrote it for layups. I mean, those those are running Kobe whites coming at you at warp seed, so as long as. Carolina takes care of the basketball. I think they run Auburn off the free point line. I don't think they over help on Jared, Harper's penetration. I think they pound Auburn on the glass, and they get to shop they want, and I think Carolina wins. But it will be an entertaining game. One of the things that I watched we're talking to Seth Greenberg. Right. He was Stephen ESPN radio is been news. One of the things watching Duke struggle against UCF on Sunday before squeezing out that one point victory. I was incredibly nervous because I was like look man, I want Zairean plans. I am lose to plan until the last possible minute of the college basketball season. I think college basketball, particularly in this day and age need him that much how much do you feel college basketball needs ion Williamson at this particular moment in time with the NCAA tournament going on? Designs have been he's been the story. I mean, he's must see TV just look at our ratings. So I mean, you mentioned look, I mean, you you mentioned sign and your ratings go up the thing that makes I Williamson so special in everyone's gonna talk about the running and the jumping and explosiveness and how can a guy that big that large to me? It's a smile to me. It's his genuine enthusiasm to me. He's always talking about his teammates. You know, you can talk about what he does on the court. I loved what he does when he handles winning the enjoyment. He has seen his teammates be successful to me. He's made Duke much more likable. You know, we think of Duca time she either love him or your hate him. It's hard not to like Zion. Williamson. And it's the way it is. And his his his genuine joy of playing the game..

Coach case OPEL that the freshman will be able to play in next week's eight C C tournament. Yesterday was pretty exciting really to see him move. And have confidence in its movements. Now, we gotta get them into condition. And have them do some work against you know, where your you can do all those things from there's no contact. There's contact you put your body in different. Yeah. Thanks a little bit different. But you know, we're on a real good trend here. I'm excited about it. Roy williams. Meantime prepping is he'll see the star freshman on the floor. We prepared for women over there to be playing against dukes full team, including Zion who'd been having this phenomenal years freshman I've ever seen and we're still preparing. Going to play and at the same time. They're gonna make the decision. So we have no say over it. So why worry about that part of we're going to try to prepare to play Duke University? And who's got that uniform on we're going to give a scouting report can give a scatter report. I it and if he doesn't play. That's that's their decision. The F C L Brown was on Freddie and Fitz Simons, and he says ROY might be onto something. I really believe I feel like we're gonna see him tomorrow against Carolina part of it is based on Zion himself just from from what he said during the season in the past and everything I know he's dying to play in that game. You know for all the talk outside about people talking about he should shut it down for the draft. And everything I don't think he's ever spent one moment actually seriously considering that, and you know, if you play do core Carolina. This is a game you wanna play in especially if you're one and done guide you never opportunity again. So from what coach K said, you know, him moving well yesterday when he played even though it was it was not in full-contact kind of drills in practice, and he spoke to us before practice today. So I felt like if he's moving out well yesterday. You know? I would imagine he moves well today practice, so they're gonna give it a go during shoot around in the morning before they actually make the final announcement on it. And and I my good is telling me he's gonna play. We're going to see him in the lineup at some point. Seth Greenburg gone sportscenter. Sizing up this tobacco road rivalry that. First game.

"You're right spectacular player. Love him. Love him is appropriate. Spects very similar if not slightly better than Michael Burcham from Villanova last year, and my mind, but tied Rome is a nice player who's not guarding. Anyone on Duke? Kyle guy a nice player who's not cutting anybody onto this team is not made to match up with the size and the athlete's ability and the F lettuce schism of the Dupuis devils there. Nightmare matchup for any team in the country include. Gonzaga. And look, you know, they've lost two games this year. And they've lost them by a combined six points. They've got this matchup with Syracuse this weekend. And they they're going to annihilate this. They're going to be student game. And it's at cues like cues came in Q and cues came in and beat you get home. It was the first time it had ever happened that an unranked opponent came into Cameron indoor against Duke is a number one ranked team and beat them. Like the first time ever Duke is going to be cute by twenty pluses weekend. It's not going to be a competitive game. They've got North Carolina left twice on the schedule. This both interesting games, including this Wednesday. I can't wait for that. Yeah. It'd be a lot of fun Duke, North Carolina's always fun. This is to to top eight teams right now. But North Carolina doesn't match up with Dookie. Yeah. I was gonna say my problem with UNC is is I don't think there is good as as they have been in the past. I've seen them falter too. Many times this season and struggle with with certain, sir. Teams in certain games that I don't know how well they're going to play with do not. Well, his is probably the reality of it. Like, I like Kobe whiteness year Littles playing. Okay. He probably can't wait to get away from that team because it's really holding him back Gonzaga is another team that is just simply not built to play with Duke. I mean, you you have a guy like really hot for Mora who is one of the more talented offensive players in the country, but one you know, he gets by on size athleticism. He can be completely taken out of game buys ion Williamson who is you know, as big and stronger, and faster and more ethnic. I like Norville I like Perkins. But these are not guys that are going to scare the, you know, the the Duke blue devils too much Brandon Clark's good player, but they're just Teamsters not made to play with to nobody is made to play with this. Do they got the top three recruits in the country in two of them are playing as well or exceeding expectations? I do I do have another team that's out there. That doesn't get any of the press and for good reason because they're out west, and they don't get looked at really at all. But that Nevada team that's a team that honestly should have been in the final four last year. If it wasn't for a complete meltdown against Lula Chicago there a team that's that's heavily heavily led by seniors and juniors and the Martin twins. They can fill they fill it up very quickly. When it comes to the offense of side of the ball now defensively, obviously, you know, you're going to have questions guarding anybody on Duke. But if you wanna talk about from a pure like point for point going back and forth, shootout style game Nevada can hang with them. They absolutely can. It's a good team. It's good team. Obviously one loss on the season. The Martin's experience that's fair experiences. Absolutely fair. You know, you have you have the more twins, and you have the Carolina, Jordan Caroline. Yeah. Yeah. That's good team. I mean, I think they're going to have the probably going to have some size issues, Nevada. Nevada's only lost the suction anomaly to they should be an undefeated team. But they lost. I believe they were at home against New Mexico, and they lost by like twenty and just ridiculous fashion. But outside of that they've done nothing, but just take care of business night in night out, Greg. They lost by twenty seven close enough. I I said..

This was the way one with Markelle saw down in Memphis. This is a little bit. A bit troubling from this from the standpoint that maybe he doesn't get along with the European players know, well, I think that you have to look at both of these situations independently the Marcus all one he admitted he was at fault with that. It's not a good look that. Now, he's got a situation with Canterbury kanter's is very very odd is the guy. He's always talking. He's always in the paper. He's got international problems that are going on. He's a guy who wants to play in a season where the Knicks would prefer to lose. I think it's a lot different. What was going on in Memphis? But I'm sure there's other European players that were looking to see how Zinger feels about this right now. So it is something to worry about right? And then the other thing is the other night when they were playing the nets, you know, he'd berry he buried Kanner on the on the bench, and that would have been a game that Kanter could have actually right? But so I actually thank you for not putting in the game for that. Because he knows exactly look we all know what's going on here. I mean, we've been talking about since the beginning of the season. There's a billion dollar plan. That they have it's like a lottery, right? And there's a billion dollar payoff at the end of it.

But he also seems to be fairly unstoppable inside of three feet because that's work at that size is crazy. He is someone who is wasting every second of his life right now. There's absolutely no reason why he could be in college. He's wasting his time. All he's doing is basically gambling his health for for zero upside he's so clearly better than everybody's playing against.

We really do. And by the way, credit to you. You're really trying to make Karl Anthony Bennett stick, and I'm not sure if it has legs, but I appreciate your resilience. It's the power of repetition.

At least with Duke is must see TV camera tish is also very good as well. He only had twenty two last night. And I was wondering if you look at previous NBA drafts in a we've had players from the same team drafted in the top five couple tap a few times there, but in the same draft, and I and I was wondering about this that you look back on Magic Johnson and Greg Keller.

They went three and four in the eighty four draft Jerry Stackhouse Rasheed Wallace in nineteen ninety-five from North Carolina Antoine. Jamison, vince.
