Wizards send rookie Admiral Schofield down to the G League
"Seeps alongside Brian Scallop Greeny? And we do we officially. We have our guy wizards rookie admiral. Scofield we got the headphone issues. Figured out he's hanging out with us for the next ten fifteen minutes. What's up dude? How we doing? I'm doing you guys doing. We're doing great which great admiral I want to ask you this I you know I followed sort of your G. League stuff like you. You had to pretty great games to start your career. What's it like now? We're talking about this a little bit before when we were trying to figure out the audio stuff. What's it like now? 'cause you go from Tennessee where you're playing a ton the minute you're one of the main guys and I was saying one of the hardest things about going to the NBA. Must be you know you have to make the most a very limited minute stuff that you're not used to and then you go back to the G. League where you're getting all these myths like. What's that transition been like for you? I mean I would. I would say it was easy. It's been tough but I think the biggest thing it's been more helpful than anything Than they would actually shoot the ball in touch the ball and bring the ball of the floor and you know sometimes can get lost in the game and during the little engine you lose flow. You'll slow an offense and things like that but snow problem I think the biggest thing is that you know go to Julie's allow me to see the game slower so allow me to understand. You know where my spots are in our offense because you know the G. League wins the same thing Offensively that we do with the wisdom so I think the biggest thing is just going out there playing with confidence picking my spots learning offense inside and out from different positions. So I know where would it be helpful. So that when I get my time with the wizards that can come in right away. Contribute but be a goddess in the way on offense or you know. Oh Gimme driving lanes or Brad and those guys so just learning just learning the game at a different level of different speed but I think the biggest thing is just you know developing that unger again a hunger to go out and just repairs going floor. So it's been fun My lasy league game. I had like three hundred dollars in the first quarter. I was on pace for a great game and I just I. I was so frustrated also frustrated because you know every time I play with them. I just want to prove a point. You know not not anyone but myself that you know I am who I think I am so I as many great honestly is made solid because the wizards have been doing the best but at the same time you know I just have to knows no pay my dues in. Stay prepared to contribute when My name is golf. Do you notice a difference like the four you go. You play a couple of games. You get back to the wizards in practice. We all three after whatever. It is a big difference. I would say the differences. The efficiency to see guys is every movement they do you know. Gaza is very efficient. They don't waste energy in almost seems effortless for a lot of those guys of just China followed that trend in learn how to slow the game down not ways energy not waste movement but be a smart basketball player on both ends type player. I WanNa be I I WANNA be a two way player. You know I think in this day and age noted Three D. guy is a is a great role for me but I want to develop into two way player like the Co is in the paw. Aw Georgia's I WANNA be great like those guys but you do it in my own way But like I say I'm a winner and I just want to contribute in help the wizards win but also Gogo. Winter Games will You know there was a video that was circulating of John Wall dunking in the pre game the other night and he got everybody excited. Everybody's like when is y'all come back. When are we gonna see this backward again? What can you tell us about sort of his rehab? What minds it is how? He looks like what he's playing in. What's he how has he been like around you to interact with what you like is a guy you know You know coming in. You know you don't know what to expect. What the stars Um? Tom And I can honestly say John. Wall Brad Bill has been very helpful to me and John even more so because you know he just gives you a different personality. John's going to be John Doc He's he's about energy he's like a kid honestly is hilarious but he comes in every day pushes burke in his his rehab is is very entertaining he takes very seriously but our court. He's definitely getting working as you can see. He's dunking game. But no he's taking his time Make sure they fully healed in one hundred percent again his body in his mind riding. He understands you know what's at stake this season in right now. He's just focused on his health No these in the middle of his career and you know you got to take care of his body so I think the biggest right now. I know what's best for John. His body in the wages are on board for him. Hanso baby steps right now but you know his greatest Sam jumping you know making shots knocking down threes in a jam band. John Wall the during the fancy moves in the spans. Different things on finish. Your source is Great Sam. Every day I mean he's a great guy and also you know he's been a great guy on the bench just encouraging urging brad encouraging the young guys it really being a big time leader in our locker room. Put your hat on for me. I just watched row. Gotcha more of the other day Boston. Encargado look what is very Maura. Is he quite Leonard Account. Be Help me understand. Because he looked so athletic so strong and other times. You just like all right and you can't really shoot shoot fifteen third so help me out more he to me you know watching him play he definitely has that is I think I think when you compare players you know these days. It's more of how they play not so of what they do. If you know what I mean so like I would say you know the way ruined removes the way he how efficient he is like when we play it almost looks like he's playing at his own speed because he doesn't wait in as you like I was saying not to have that. Ah Coming into the League is big time. Because guys like Kuwa- Paul George. They had that pace. They had the different speeds home now. Allows them to create themselves and create spacing facing now. He has that tooling rule is actually very very athletic. Our teammates get him a lot about not knocking the ball. You know it's just I think it's a I think for him it he'll get it But he can do ball on me. He's a very he's he's a very smart player you know he doesn't weights Zanji He sees two points two points a Dunkin Alab was equaling him. So he's just he just a basketball player may solid He's so she's very strong stronger than he looks. Definitely looks in he competes. He competes every day just like A. He's a quiet assassin. Honestly but you know you you respect his work ethic in in no way does on the floor and I think you know. We're his talent. He I mean he can he can grow. Who wants to be but I definitely see coli Colli asking them because of the way moves away he plays but no? I'm not a person likes to compare players to other players because I just think you know your your own manual in your own player your Harbor you do. A certain thing should be catered to how you do it in in God. I just don't like putting people in other people's got yours. The wizards are are. You know you guys are like this young team and you got a deal and walls kind of on the bench Isaiah Thomas but you know you're it's become a more of a fun team to watch and I I think a lot of people thought maybe especially the League ask through that are now seeing you know which teams the best wishes vaccine been a really really entertaining team this year. It'll be interesting to kind of see how you guys develop. Because you've got to. I got a good good combination of veteran players and young guys like yourself and Rui. I want to ask you about this too. We opened the show with Carmelo Anthony being back in the league. He signs a a contract with the Blazers and non-guaranteed deal. They need a ton of health kind of in that front court situation. Tell us what you think about about mellow being back in the league like how and how much like Melo is a Guy Outta you looked up to kind of coming up because I'm just talking about this early so many guys seemed to love somebody basketball guys guys in the NBA guys like yourself. That are younger. Really looked up to mellow and and love him as a basketball player. Keith Mellow being back. Leading getting another shot honestly Mid Post game after mellow ever since I was I mean maybe middle-school on me mellow is our main mellows. Everyone loves mellow because of high. Play the game and you know just flavor in the Saudi brought to the game to see him get a deal is just great Deserves the being this league. I think and I think a lot of guys in his league believed that his wailing to see him get another opportunity is always a great great thing And he's a legend to the game. He changed the game in many ways. avenues for different players. That are like him And play the game the way he plays so just to see him. Back in League is Great. Man You know guys like Jamal Crawford. medals guys are adjudged. Think that you know they can still play and I think they deserve opportunities will. Oh dislike. Tom guys opportunity. Not See what he's doing on our team saving is great for us but also is great for him knows confidence for him and not think he's building building day by day and to see what he does and not see him as a veteran. You know trying to help lead. I think that as like that are a great fit. Is League specially with a lot of young gods coming in so this is new you but I've been I've been a part of the. Va Now for about eighteen. Years and rookies never came. animate the type of impact that we're seeing right now that you've ever reason for that what what is. How are these guys coming in and make an impact right off the jump? I mean and I'm not just talking top pits. We're talking second round draft guy these guys to come in and they get a different tapping teams win the reason for that. Is I think if you really look did the tree and you know it's it's a lot of guys that are staying more than one year staying more than two years that are coming in really he make an impact but also guys that are only.

Isaiah Thomas wears green sneakers as nod to Celtics in return to Boston
"On the two thousand sixteen seventeen season. Isaiah Thomas lead the NBA in fourth quarter, scoring he was the closer. And of course, so much has changed since that fateful spring in which his sister died far more important than the basketball, but his sister China died in a car accident in Washington state he played anyway. So this was the eve of their opening round series against the Chicago Bulls. He played anyway, they dropped the first two games in Boston. And then won the next four in a row. I can remember all of this like it was yesterday. They ended up making it to the Eastern Conference finals. And do you know that at the time? Isaiah Thomas had a pair of green and gold sneakers design for the NBA finals they were for the finals. They obviously didn't make it to the finals. But he wore those same shoes. On Monday night in his healthy return. You may remember the controversy last year. I've never talked so much about tribute videos of my life. Oh, make me roll. My eyes Burr member. There was a Paul Pierce night planned to honor the future hall of Famer a longtime Celtic, and he put up a stink publicly when it appeared. As though the Celtics were also going to air tribute video fries Ahah Thomas on the same night. So it was a night when the. Shoot. What team was he within the Cavaliers? I guess I don't know. He's changed team. So many times I made that actually might have been. I think it became a moot point. Right. He was with the Cavaliers he ended up before the trade deadline. Getting ship to Los Angeles. And then it didn't matter because he wasn't with the Cavaliers when they were in Boston. And so Paul Pierce had his night without any controversy. And Thomas has been back or his teams have been back. He's played for now. Three teams since Boston. But this was the first time he was healthy enough to be on the court. He only played seven minutes though. When it looked like he was nervous or maybe the news that he's being dropped from the nuggets rotation maybe that room for a loop. I it certainly would most human beings who play sport for a living. And so it wasn't a great night for him. But they did have the video was some really cool moments from his time in Boston. He was all heart, heart and smarts. That's the hashtag that I use for that particular edition of the Boston Celtics who seem like they overachieved, and they Thomas the little engine that could he was a big reason why. But man life comes at fast that was only a year and a half ago. And now think about the arc of Thomas's career any injuries. Of course, that have really changed his speed and his
2019 NBA Standings: Warriors, Bucks Lead West, East at All-Star Break

That'll be their last game before the break. There's a couple of more games tonight. Good ones, though, blazers lit up the warriors won twenty nine one seven thanks to a fourth quarter rampage. That's all Portland outscore the champs thirty five to twelve Damian Lillard scored twenty nine he and seven other blazers reached double figures compared to just two for the dub, Steph curry and Kevin Durant. Each had thirty two wasn't quite enough Portland. Also added veteran Senator NS cater their roster. He was waived last week by the Knicks Kanter also been quartered by the Lakers. He actually signed an offer sheet with Portland four years ago, but never played for them because the thunder matched it and then bond up trading him to New York as part of the Carmelo Anthony deal back in two thousand seventeen. Okay. Mr history. That's it for that. He's averaged fourteen points and ten and a half rebounds for the Knicks this year that rebound total is tenth in the league. So you'd see why the Knicks would want to get rid of him because you know, otherwise, they wouldn't be able to run off a long losing streak. Like they have more about them in a second nuggets nip the kings one twenty to one eighteen Nikola Yokich tipped in the winter in the final second of that game. Paul Millsap had twenty five points and Isaiah Thomas made his season debut for the nuggets play thirteen minutes. Head. A couple of three pointers and wound up with eight points.

Anthony Davis Trade Rumors: Pelicans May Make Counteroffer to Lakers
"Anthony Davis says if feels like his time is now that he's given all he can to the pelicans. And he's ready to move on the all-star informing New Orleans earlier this week. He'd like to be traded said Friday that his intention is as long as he can is a member of this organization, but legacy does factor in this decision. Oh. Lexi. Goes good. I'm playing. Know. What is my legacy going to be? That's the younger AD. Anthony Davis senior telling ESPN's Ramona Shelburne that he doesn't want his son to play for the Celtics after quote what they had done to Isaiah Thomas. No loyalty guy gives his heart and soul Nate traded him. They did trade him for Kyrie Irving over by the way. Meantime, the pelicans are mulling over what to do with the six time all star as next Thursday's deadline approaches. Wold on the Lakers. I offer for Davis is underwhelming leaks. Sources league sources tell me that the Lakers I offer to the pelicans included cow coups Ma Rajon Rondo, Michael Beasley, Lonzo ball and a first round pick. And the Lakers offered have offered a few variations. Of deals, but but all of them have only included in each of them. A couple of the Lakers are among the Lakers. Several good young players. Just two of them in each offer and Rondo or land Stevenson are in almost every offer and essentially. In your starting point in these kinds of talks, especially for a player of Anthony Davis has stature would be most of your good young players and multiple first round picks. And the pelicans haven't got an offer yet. I'm told that includes more than one first round
Anthony Davis' dad sounds off on Celtics: 'I would never want my son to play for Boston'
"So Anthony Davis requested a trade from the New Orleans. Pelicans still does have a year left on his contract. His father did make some news the other day when? Anthony Davis senior said I would never want my son to play for Boston After what they done to Isaiah Thomas. No, loyalty guy, gives his heart and soul. And they traded him. This is just my opinion. He said I've just seen things over the years Boston. And there's the loyalty will really there's no loyalty in sports. There's very few times in sports where you see this great amount of loyalty, I can't kill the Celtics for the Zeya Thomas situation. Sure when a guy has been through all that when he's someone that is easy to root for is it tough to trade him, absolutely. But will you gotta give them a max contract just because you were loyal to him. And and give them a max contract and your quired a better player, and obviously with Kyrie Irving. But if you would have given him a max contract and the way that his career has panned out man, and you have been looking foolish, and and I get it. A lot happened with them off the court. He was an inspirational story with the injury blade through. And and all the family situations. With what happened to his sister? I totally get that. It's tough to make a move like that. But sports are roofless. And we know that. So I can't kill the Celtics. And I can't say I agree with Anthony Davis senior that. Anthony Davis to play for the southeast because there's no loyalty he can't get too caught up in the past. Here's what we know about the Celtics. They have a very good group eventually is going to be some players area have to be broken up. And Kyrie Irving may not be coming back that could be a possibility because before the season started Kyrie said, hey, I'm coming back as long as you guys want me back, and now it's a totally different. Tune in you, see the scene at the garden the other night where knick fans are regular play for Kyrie Irving. But we'll see what

"Carson the news broke earlier this week that Anthony Davis wanted out of New Orleans didn't wanna play for the pelicans anymore. We now know one team his Dan doesn't want him to be traded to that would be the Boston Celtics citing the team's treatment of Isaiah Thomas. Anthony Davis senior till the SPN. The Celtics have quote, no loyalty guy, gives his heart and soul. And they traded him end, quote Davis senior clarified that this was solely his own opinion. And that he can't speak
Anthony Davis' Father Rips Celtics for 'No Loyalty' with Isaiah Thomas
"So Charles Barkley last night on TNT with some pretty strong words about Anthony Davis his trade demand from Nola. It was done privately at first last weekend. Then Davis is agent. Rich Paul who we not. So coincidentally shares with LeBron James went public with an on Monday. And since then we've had four days of back and forth. I agree with Chuck sentiment. Right there. I certainly do so awful for I don't know the twenty five teams in the NBA who don't reside in these power cities. It's awful for them. But for the fans, it's great these rumors are awesome. I mean, just compare and contrast the NBA with baseball. I mean this off season is like, you know, here we are February first spring training two weeks away and to the most to the best free free agents. Excuse me, possibly ever tit the market in their primes Bryce Harper and Manny Machado are still unsigned because we got going on baseball the NBA. It's trade deadline and all this stuff is going around. And just as we were in break. Got the story up here for Mona's Shelburne in ESPN NBA insider posted at seven twenty four. So just about fifteen minutes ago. The father of pelican star Anthony Davis said he does not want his son to play for the Celtics if they would require him via trade this summer. I would never want my son to play for Boston After what they did to. Isaiah thomas. Anthony Davis senior told ESPN on Friday. No loyalty, the guy gives us, heart and soul. And the traded him. David senior went on to clarify, these only speaking for itself, he's not speaking for his son. This is just my opinion. Non anthony's. He said I've just seen things over the years with Boston. There is no loyalty. So that's Anthony Davis father saying that the way Danny Ainge shipped. Isaiah Thomas added town for kyri two summers ago after that playoff run playing through the hip injury playing after the death of his sister missing teeth still finding its way onto the court said the terrific postseason. He had where the Celtics do they turn around trade Thomas for Kyrie Irving any Davis. His father's says, no royalty that set. I don't want my son go into Boston. I say are you serious? You kidding me? The Celtics are the only team in the NBA who pull this kind of stuff really the salt. Are the only team in the NBA who have traded a player who didn't want to go. Really Anthony Davis senior Nolte, obviously, no loyalty, it's a business. It's a business and guess what? The Celtics made the right call. They made the right call. What's Isaiah Thomas doing right now playing for the veteran's minimum carry Irving asthma Curiel as he is as enigmatic as he is going to start in the all star game. Having a great season. He was great last year until he got hurt. Celtics aren't trading him at the deadline. I wouldn't do that. So he woke up on the wrong side of the bed today. Okay. Get them tomorrow. You keep carrier having here you win that trade. You do that trade ten times out of ten everyday twice on Sunday. No wilty believe me, if the Celtics acquire Anthony Davis this summer, and if they do resign him, they will not trade Anthony Davis. Believe me the difference between Anthony Davis and Thomas, quite large. You have something to say, drew. See return it on. I just think it's funny that loyalty. I'm not criticizing Davis for wanting to leave New Orleans, but loyalty is you know, kind of a two way. That's a great point. That's a great point. So your son. Is signed with the pelicans for one more year through twenty twenty the pelicans can give him way more money than any other team. That's a great point, and you publicly asked for trade this week less than two weeks before the deadline trying to undermine all their negotiation leverage. And then putting it out there that you only want to re sign with the Lakers. So you're not just publicly declaring trade, which you were fined fifty thousand dollars for doing by the way because that's against league policy. So you're not just publicly declaring a trade west in two weeks before the deadline undercutting your team's leverage. You are then in order to further undercut your team saying, oh, by the way, I only want to re sign with the Lakers everywhere else is just renting me. Wait what? Yeah. Great point loyalty. How what your son is doing? And again, no problem with that power to the players. Anthony Davis has the right to do that. I mean, this is what star players have done since the decision special with LeBron James a decade ago. So I get all that. I have no issue there. But yeah, the to a street, I mean, if players can demand trades left, and right, then guess what teams that have these players under contract have a right to trade them as well. Have a right to trade them as well. That's week. That's week by Anthony
Officials defend actions after migrant girl dies in custody
"Made the difficult journey through treacherous terrain. This is just a very sad example of the dangers of this charity, according to DHS customs and border patrol agents. Apprehended the girl and her father on December six at the antelope wells border port of entry in western New Mexico along with a group of migrants turning themselves in to the US agents. It was there that DHS says her father at first told border agents his daughter was in good health. It was noted on an English language intake form that the father signed. But he does not speak English. The father and daughter waited for hours before boarding. Rush to a nearby border station. DHS says on the way to Lord Burgh, New Mexico ninety five miles away the girl ran a high fever and started vomiting at one point. She stopped breathing agents revived her and called the head for emergency medical help just over an hour after reaching the border station. She was airlifted to providence children's hospital in El Paso, Texas, one hundred sixty miles away. Her father traveled there separately. The girl suffered cardiac arrest in the hospital was revived but did not recover. She died on the morning of December eight the coroner has not ruled on her cause of death this family chose to cross illegally. What happened here was they were ninety ninety miles away from where we could process them. We gave immediate care. We'll continue to look into the situation. But again, I cannot stress how dangerous this journey is. When migrants she used to come here illegally does administration take responsibility for a parent taking child on a trek through Mexico. To get to this country. No, not far from this hospital in El Paso, the group border network for human rights takes issue with the Trump administration blaming the girl's father. This is not the America that we believe that we used to believe I I mean, mean. the decision of the border these tuition is going to come in on the rest of our society. This is not what the Mary Kay. And Jake the department of homeland security inspector general says that it will launch an internal investigation into the death of this young girl in that the report will be made public, but critics are also wondering why it took DHS more than a week to talk about this case publicly and asking why took a news report to bring this story to light Jake.

And I think certain guests will be able to get there in a lot of other surprise and stuff will have for the show. So I think it'd be major, but I, I know you have to be kind of sad because you're not going to have to drive up to bristle anymore. You're not gonna come up here. You know what it is. It is a very, very sad day because I mean, what's not to love about Bristol, Connecticut. I mean. ESPN down the block that there's a McDonald's and and and and and a ruby Tuesdays and stuff like that. I've really, it's really sad that I'm not going to be able to be there because I'm going to be in new you most times and on occasion, I'll find myself with John and feed and Dominic in LA. I mean my God, it's such a tough tough situation, but I think I'll say, I can't wait and obviously can't wait at four t with you guys. Now that'll be on your home city, but saving, I'll tell team soon. I hope you are actually relaxing for some reason. I don't believe you, but please do that because you know, once you're back, you're back. Just know this when I'm back copy ready, then I'll tell, sorry my condolences to Mexico element in advance must've taken. It's about to be out. All right, Steven, Al. Talk to you soon. All righty. Thank you. Congratulations, Shane. Okay. So we have a first day moving to the Big Apple catch us every day at ten eastern starting on September. Third. Sports right now. I'm at Collins, new Denver Nuggets. Point guard. Isaiah Thomas is sitting down with our MBA insider h. g. now ski, I t who signed a one year two million dollars contract with the nuggets. Last week opened up to watch telling him this free agency was flat out disappointing, the twenty nine year old who continues to fight the perceptions of his help. One onto say, quote, people know that I've earned deserve the Bax contract, and that's the only reason why I didn't get paid what I deserved because I got injured. I get that. The biggest thing for me was to get to the best opportunity for me this summer and show that I'm healthy. You can read. We'll just four article on Thomas right now on ESPN dot com. Staying in the NBA with Kawai heading to Toronto on the broad in Los Angeles. We're looking ahead to who are the best and worst team heading into the season where than forty ESPN reporters, insiders and editors came out with a new set of power rankings. You'd think with James in Los Angeles Lakers at least at the. Five think again, no surprise. The warriors are on top, but three of the top five teams are from the Eastern Conference, the Lakers checking nine, but that's only the six best among Western Conference teams. Let's get back to. I takes Tony. Thank you the Lakers outing. Another piece to help LeBron next season's dining, Michael Beasley to a one year deal. As you just heard the Lakers are number nine in our latest NBA tower, rankings Mazel serve with you. Do think the Lakers or more likely to surprise us as upcoming season or disappoint, you know, I'm a huge Lakers fan. I think they are more likely to disappoint what fortunately with you to say that look. I mean, there are some really interesting piece. I liked the addition of Michael Beasley. They need shooters, but there are some really challenging personalities on this roster land Stevenson and Ray John Rondo and javale McGee. And now Michael Beasley, the expectations are so high for this team. And I think ultimately we're talking about a team that's going to be the six to seven seed. I think in the Western Conference I would never count LeBron. But LeBron James, I don't think has ever been on a team that has finished six or seven in its conference. I think it's going to be a very, very tough challenge for Luke. Walton debt may be the toughest job in the NBA right now, balancing those personalities, balancing those egos and keeping LeBron James happy. Can I respond to Mr. happy over here? Does he need to get in there and say, as I like to say, my real job is at the as the Lakers radio play by play guy. This is going to be great. It's going to be a fascinating lab experiment. Number one, we got LeBron look at the roster LeBron had last year in Cleveland compared to this roster this wrestlers just as good, maybe better. I can't wait to see how these pieces come to. And keep in mind. The Lakers young guys are all getting ready to make a jump. Brandon Ingram doubled his statistical numbers. Last year, Josh Hart was just the MVP of summer league Lonzo ball's coming off of a minor knee surgery, but I expect him to get better this year and Kyle Kuzma was the steal of the draft. I can't wait to see what this Lakers team looks like with will run as the leader. The games are going to be ridiculously exciting, and most of all, we're not going to be losing anymore. I've suffered through five straight losing seasons. The end of that is here, and I think that the Lakers are going to surprise a lot of people in the opposite of Mason. Dominique. I think the Lakers are, if you look at that roster, there's some real possibilities. I think I agree with you in part because I don't think the expectations are very high expectations are pretty low for this team right now. All the reporting about other opinions about this team is that they're the. Main team there. They're a bunch of guys who are wildcards and is no way that you can put together. And it seems like every other week, the Lakers are coming out trying to defend their roster construction and try and explain to us what they're thinking. I think what they're trying to put together as a smart team of bunch of guys who have veteran experience that are adaptable on defense can pass pretty well not as many shoot as you would like to see. But they have a couple of shooters. I think they have a decent team and they have a guy by the name of LeBron James. I don't know if you guys watch the playoffs last year, watch any basketball. James is pretty damn good, and he makes your team a contender immediately. So I think that's -tations are low. So I think they will surprise and then you look at the Western Conference. I think we talk about how heavy how stack the Western Conference is often. I think that's a bit oversold, but to be honest, you look at some of these teams that you think LeBron's going to be worse than Utah. LeBron's going to be worse than Portland LeBron's going to be worse than Denver. Like I know they're good teams, young teams that are getting better, but he's LeBron James and he has a young good coach. Luke Walton wa think is flexible and smart enough to make this team good. I think expectations are low so they will surprise Molly. Where are you on this? They're going to surprise disappoint. What do we think? What do I think people are expecting? Tell me that for fifty wins is what the expectation is an wouldn't you agree make the Ryan that just came out, said that they were ninth in the Powell ratings, right? The ratings ESPN pirating said they're nice night than they're not yet pulling up pulling up the radio. That'd be about right because there's three Eastern Conference teams, so that would put them four, five, six in the state. I think the expectations are Western Conference finals and.
