"Feel like sharks, you and I have had, and I mentioned this at the top of the piece, I felt this kind of energy towards Kate Cunningham. You tell me if I'm talking about that all. Well, okay, you read the piece. I've been a long time kind of Kate believer. I know a lot of Kate believers, people who are into him, and there's been a dialog. About him, people that we've had to win over. There have been people in the middle like I'm gonna wait and see, you know, I'm not sure about him. And then there have been people who have been flat out like he sucks, you guys overrate him, you hipsters have done it again, that kind of thing. Am I being paranoid? Do you think I'm being overly defensive here? Am I right or wrong? It's just felt like there's been an energy to kind of doubt kade. That's what I've seen. I would say one, people love to doubt. There's always, there's no reason to not be paranoid. Everyone wants to doubt everything in this modern age. But I thought this sentence you had at the start. So to give us some background. So Kyle wrote a great piece rookie breakdown. And our original thought was, okay, let's talk about Jalen suggs and kade Cunningham, kind of the lead guys in this piece. So I'm like watching Phil. I'm like really breaking down pistons and magic games. And I'm watching these games and I'm thinking there's an elephant in the room here and that the best player of these guys we're not even talking about is Franz Wagner. And so Kyle, your piece and you say here you say, I felt that about cade Cunningham, who I think some saw as the hipster champion, a chosen one for larp or draft nerds who once again got excited by the idea of something rather than the reality. I thought that was really well put. Well, thank you, man. It's nice to get one compliment about my writing from John sharks. Well, you know. Well, because you asked me like, oh, where did you get the piece? I said, I what are we telling people? Why not? You already brought it up. I just said I thought it was really good, but just a very different style. So it's hard for me to really talk about how you wrote it just because there are so many personal anecdotes, which is great. It's just not the way I usually write these kind of things. So it's hard for me to get a feedback. John, people know we've established. I'm teased me all the time. I'm a hipster Y kind of a person. I have, I have snobby sensibilities. You've vowed at me. People know how our dynamic on that. Okay, well, I think the point is with K going back even to last year, Oklahoma state. And I mean, you said you know people who like hate everyone like Kate. It wasn't like Kate was some out there. People, there's always doubters, and I think I was a doubter in a sense that I was never quite sure, I never quite saw why everyone was so excited about. It always felt like he would make one nice pass, people were like, okay, this is amazing player. And I just felt like he was being crowned without necessarily doing all that much in my mind. I saw the potential, but I never saw the production that would indicate the potentials for sure going to happen. This guy, let's anoint him number one. That always struck me as kind of odd. As opposed to, you saw things, I mean like Evan mobley had offensively didn't have like a thunderous holy shit wow, this guy's, this guy's an unstoppable score, but he did things defensively, obviously, that were really incredible. I mean, at the college level. Yeah, it always seemed to me as more open. I was a mobley guy. It always seems to me more to open than people were making it out to be. And I think that's why at a certain level, this a little bit of a backlash started to brew because it was like, well, why are we so sure cave is going to be this all star all NBA player? Like, what in the numbers or in the way he's playing is going to be like, why is that for sure thing? And I think we're seeing it now, not that he's not a good player, but it's not a for sure. This guy is going to be like an MVP level player, which is in my mind how he was portrayed in college. Tell me if I'm wrong. Was he not putting that kind of category by a lot of people? I think some people thought that he was going to be MVP level. I always kind of had him like his ceiling to me was, I thought that he and mobley both could get in that top ten to 15 range, like players in the league, which is like, I think, extremely high praise. I think like people, I feel like the consensus has come down a little bit from that, like most people probably don't see K in that range or maybe potentially in all star. I mean, you think mobile could be the best player in the league. I think that's a pretty good draft. In a year that somebody's like that, but I think that you're right about the counting step production has never been a thing that is going to blow you away with cade. To me, like Kate is much more of a malleable, can go on or off ball, he's a flexible kind of offensive piece. And I don't know that he's necessarily like a dominant score type, which I think. But I also think that the thing that people got excited about and I make this point in the piece is that there was a player type in that 2018 to 2020 range that was putting up crazy stats, carrying the offensive load, getting a whole bunch of assist, being the engine of a heliocentric offense. And I think people got excited about that archetype and they saw cade and they thought that he could fit that archetype. Yeah, and I think the first thing to start with Kate right now is just off the top. He was listed at 6 8 two 30 in college, and then he comes to the NBA and all of a sudden he's 6 6 two 20. And that might not sound like that big a deal, but it really is when you're not a plus athlete. Like I put those two things, that's what to me is a big concern for cade. I watched him at the NBA level. I don't see a player with a lot of physical advantages over the guys who's going up against. He kind of looks like an average sized two guard, a bigger point guard without an elite first step who can't really just demolish smaller players inside or blow by slower players off the dribble. It feels like everything with Kate is really, really difficult. And he has a high skill level. So he's still able to succeed to some extent. But I watched him out there. I just don't see a guy with many physical advantages. And that's just going to make it harder for you to really get into that superstar level. It is, I think that's right. But I think he does have a plus four wingspan as something we should just mention. But I think that something I brought up in the piece is just that he had a he had a proclivity in the past. I remember when I saw him, I feel like he's lost weight and I think he's changed his body type and I brought this up on a prior episode. Whenever he bullies players and switches, and he did this summit, Oklahoma state. He did a little more posting up. He did a little bit more of that kind of like fall away game or he'd bully a switch and get to the lane and shoot like a baby hook. I think that he is trying to play in a style and in a body type that doesn't serve him..

And i have an opinion. Go ahead. i think playing football made me a better basketball player. Okay why will you look at the positions and they kinda directly carry over onto the best point guard. Yeah in a quarterback you had you know. Yeah you have to know what guys are gonna be yachts put the ball there and kinda like four semite.

"What did you go to zag man. You spoke pacific northwest. I could okay. So on the west coast it's arizona. Ucla inzaghi then oregon. Does i took it over took over. What serious took over what you're arrigoni not even like in the conversation act anymore listless. Let's phase no face of the west face. See this is the thing i guess. Yes listen i will give gonzaga. All the ship. Part of the reason why was rooting at two guys is because i know until you win a national championship been you guys will never be the face west coast and that's not a knock. That's why i was rooting against. Because if you're one it was going to be proclamation. Zona that is a sign of respect me rooting against you bet. Sign of respect mother women. We have even harder fucking problem in this shit right so it's a sign of respect but make no mistake. It's still goes. The face of west coast. Basketball is ucla in arizona then gonzaga then i would say oregon even just did. Ucla give a fuck about what did to ucla. Ucla has eleven national championships in the fifties. Be on my side. I'll say this in schools better than ours that he guesses that because we never lost to them. That's actually very true right. And this is not mark you gonzaga. I think you might be the highest drafted gonzaga guy next to adam morrison. I'm pretty sure this is probably the first should. We haven't had a lotta respect in a long time. Yeah but that's cute. I really do think that that's so adorable. Gonzagas had like we've had nine draft picks. Nineteen years murphy. We you know okay. We have forty eight speaking of that. Because it's kind of around the same lines that you guys are talking about. We have some questions from fans. And if you don't mind answering richard touring. tony talks. Wants to know why you picked gonzaga. Oh gonzaga was easy for me. Honestly i knew. I was.

"And i like me and channing. We had evan mobely on here last. We're just kind of going through the route but one thing i wanted to say like if you wanna be great. It's unfair the coach is going to have to hold you the most accountable so there's going to be days. I had a great coach. One time come into in. Tell me like. Hey richard there's gonna be times righteous. Come in and tell you. I'm gonna cut you the fuck out. I might not be talking to you. But i just wanna make sure that you understand that in order to be a leader and in order to be a guy that is respected in the in the locker room in for me to really get on everybody else. I have to hold my best player accountable. Now channing never experienced this because he was never the best player on any team any not. Not even it's not even high school team richer. Not never even the best. Wear your high school team boss. Gatorade player the whole steak. You weren't even the best you get anyways jail. And like i say when was the best anything to have a coke the most to have you hold you. The most accountable might be hard. He might countryman. Goes on that bullshit and it's like no no no coach when he's talking to you he's talking to everybody else but last pop to do with. Tim duncan he would come in the first day of training camp. I swear to you the first person to get cussed out with. Tim duncan why because anybody else that showed up there you'd be like fuck if he's talking to. Tim duncan like that..

"I see where. I'm matt a year from now and if i can come back with the group that i know is that close to a title. Ooh giving them a chance. It's so hard because we just don't know how long he's going to be out. The injury has been a little mysterious the whole time it was labeled a sprain or a strain and then it was upgraded to say a partial tear. I don't know how much a partial tear is it. Like ninety eight percents at this point. Nine percents we don't know what got repaired we do know. It requires surgery and this is the kind of injury that could have him out for most of next season and then not rejoin the team until the playoffs. Or maybe even sit out the whole year. It's just unpredictable. And we've seen that with leonard and his health which then again makes you think. Maybe he will opt out but re-sign so he can have that security going forward. I do think we learned with kevin durant though a player who is of that caliber. No matter whether he's injured or not people will want to sign him. They they have some faith that he will get better. And that is the guy that you want be there. The money will be there. Let's talk about another guy. Who would like to command some big bucks. Kyle lowry also a free agent. Fifteen seasons of mba experience an nba title on his resume. Definitely gonna draw some attention on the free agent market of his fifteen seasons. Nine of horse were played in toronto where he holds a number of franchise records. So chris comes really mr raptor right now. Do you think he will stay in toronto where you of course also played or will end up going elsewhere. Look cow is such. He's in such a unique position. I think he's one of the guys in this free agency. Pool has the biggest decision to make yet. Does he go back to toronto or does he wants to team up in trying to get one more title one of the fascinating teams out there. That is really a dark horse in always darkhorse in free agency is the dow's mavericks. You have teams like la. The lakers out there trying to get better. They can't sign them out right but them trying to figure out how to get back on top. You know having that veteran leadership at the point guard is is tremendous and is vital to an nba championship. And i think in kyle's case just the fact that he can spread the floor he can shoot. He can get to the free throw line drawing thousands the way he does and for whatever reason he doesn't seem to age more his game stays the same credible but i think if if i'm trying to compete for championship and i want an automatic upgrade at point guard. He's got the shooting. He's got the veteran leadership He has the ability to run your offense and he can be either a distributor or a facilitator of offense and shooting a lotta shots. And you've got a guard. I think that's very important for the point guard position. Today's lea he's in a very very interesting Situation he's going to have a very difficult choice to make very soon. But i'm sure everybody's going to be knocking at his door trying to get better and upgrade at that position philly philly to put him with them bead and you know what he's going to give you a doc. Yes those guys together can make it happen. Kyle lowry is a leader. That could use another voice in that locker room. Chris mentioned all the reasons why on the floor he can be that guy that everybody rallies around. But he's got the experience he's got the talent and at this stage of his career rates. He wants to win again right. Philly gives him that best opportunity. He goes home. I think it makes a lot of sense for the sixers. A potential ben simmons trade which we've been discussing this week that the sixers are looking into not necessarily gonna make but are looking into a little bit less painful because what you lose with. Ben is an elite player. Who so good on the defensive. End and kyle. Lowry is the guy if you brought him in while chris you know from going up against him the man can defend right. I mean he just brings that toughness and tenacity to any team champion right. He he's going to do those things necessary to win. And i can't believe i didn't think philly is a good one going bringing the broad street bullies back. I'm sure that phillies in a position where they felt that they could have competed a lot better. They didn't even get to the eastern conference finals. So they've got a lot to prove in b.'s. Got a lot to prove. And you know with daryl maury l. andbranch at the helm of that organization. They want to win now too so expect him to make some big moves as well but i liked that. Cau- laurie to the to the seventy sixers. I can't believe i didn't see that there. Some cat mechanics in your initial answer. Which i was very impressed with so nissan. You sign and trade that you were throwing in there as well kyle lowry. I just want to note is thirty five years old. So that may factor into some teams thinking although he had a later season. Is that what we should call it last year in tampa. There's a lot of golf. Who laid out of games so that they finish your shirt way. I don't know what that's the. Nba can't quite remember but yes it will be interesting to see. What kind of elaborate does coming up. Talk a little bit steph curry. We've got top five plays of this season. No that's good but we will move onto a discussion as well as the warriors strategy just two days before the nba draft for dealt with the inside scoop on that. I oh it's time for our distant replay bubble last year donovan. Mitchell really good donovan. Cold behind the couch. He was so much fun to watch in the bubble. And then of course carry a breakthrough. Passengers reach is challenge. He's gotta win in the postseason. They won back friends. We're showing you steph. Curry's top plays of the season so plus a lot because number five beating the shot clock. Whoop sorry kings come on coolest watching him play. It's amazing all of these guys. You look down at the bench and the reaction was just insane. Because everybody's going. I can't believe he's doing this number. Four up and under versus the celtics bag besides the jumper just saying that handle credible finisher to. He doesn't get enough credit for how he can finish the ball around and he built up his strength so much this past season. Yeah that work. Every day on all that stuff number three beats the first quarter buzzer in san antonio with a giddy up there at the end the amount of confidence that these guys have playing alongside them when they know he can drop those kind of want to scotto andrew. It's like being in a fight with mike tyson. You you've got your guy. Well chris talking on circus way up.

"To future first round picks including the tenth overall pick in thursday's drop this is all according to sources telling woke. So who do you think benefits most from this deal. Nick richard first glance. I was like well. New orleans looks pretty good balance. Tunis can play. They got off a couple of mistakes in adams and that bledsoe deal. But then i was like you've got time to go after some more pieces. But then i look at what memphis got back in those two picks. They hit all the time. You've got josh. You've got brooks. You've got jacks and all the guys on that bench that young core that has developed. They hit every time they take swings. They like somebody and it's very clear that they do in that top ten. It's going to be there for them in. This is a team. That almost feels like a college program. They play guys in their system. They know how to plan to taylor. Jenkins climbing knows which buttons to hit behind the scene. So this group knows what to do. And i think there's grizzlies team Is ready to take another big swing in the draft. Let's stay with the memphis side for a minute because the timeline for the grizzlies. They have this great luxury. The idea that here you go you have young stars who played so well early that you can draft players now better still on their time line. I mean that's crazy. Normally by the time someone is is a good as john. Mirant is he's five or six years in. He's not just a couple of years in so this let them kind of create even more of talent nucleus all around the same age group. Now on the pelicans side it is fascinating so they dropped back seven spots in the draft but get a ton more cap flexibility that will let them either match an offer sheet to lonzo ball or look for a point guard but the bottom line new orleans is there is a win now feeling there which is not normally what you would expect just a couple years after you get a number one overall talent like zion williamson but that pressure is already there on them right. I mean when a championship. Right now. I just i don't get into the playoffs. Have a winning record mode the the issue for new orleans. What were they doing bringing in those deals in the first place. They've corrected some mistakes. That's all well and good but who is coming to new orleans. This has been a problem for years and years. Who's going there. You've gotta develop your own guys and now you've given up a couple more picks. I understand that they're trying to win. With ion just seems like there's a lot of uncertainty as there always is in that organization and if this deal doesn't work at june doesn't instantly come in and and make a difference. Then where do you go. Well i like the depth that valentinus gives us gives them and look. We got chris bosh. So let's get. Hello chris bosh. We've got the technology to work. I'm very happy to see your face. We are talking about this trait. That went down yesterday. And it moves owners valance soon as to new orleans and i was just talking about the extra dimension he gives them you played against him the fact that he can't shoot and had i think we'll to look at the stats but i think it was either his best season or close to his best season. Ever this past season. How do you think he can help. Zion williamson you can definitely ease one of those players. You can plug in and be successful right away. He can't stress the floor and he is a big body that can control the paint. Rebound you know lay some would in in the paint. The challenge in my opinion is how you play him together. Zion played a lot of minutes at the five last year. And i think they did have success with him picking enrolling. He's one of the most tremendous outside of janas. These probably one of the most tremendous guys in and around the pain area as far as finishing his concern. But i think in my opinion if you look at it memphis just wins this trade by far more picks you know they okay. You get an even swapping bigs between stephen adams and balanced tunis. But they also get bledsoe so he can be in a position where he's coming off the bench and really aiding this fast young memphis grizzlies team and you know. I think they have a tremendous upside right now. I think stephen adams you can plug him in right away. He's going to be able to get guys. Open for moran to have a big like stephen adams that's always a luxury because he's gonna look protect him and this guy's opened but all in all they got more picks they got pretty much even trade on the bigs and they got eric bledsoe deal and it's opt-in protected pick. I mean you have to say that memphis walks away. The winner in this new orleans feels like they've got the better of the deal in terms of the big man. Just because valentine is can do a little bit more a little bit more dexterous on the court but your point about stephen adams so well taken and i know memphis is not grit and grind officially anymore or even in their style of play. But i do think the people of memphis who still have that left over we work hard. Were grimy we do the work. I think they will really really like having stephen adams on their team. I want to switch over to. What's going on here in los angeles leonard recovering from acl surgery. He also decision to make regarding his player option for next season he has the ability to opt out and become a free agent. He could opt for one more year just sort of kick the can down the road or he could potentially sign extension. Chris you have been in this situation yourself. What do you expect quite to do. Do you think that he'll remain with the clippers in one of those variations. Think they should run it back. You can arguably look at this last season. And i'm sure why can say man. We could have won an nba championship. If i don't go down they weren't one hundred percent plan. The phoenix suns and potentially say that they could match better with the bugs in that final series but him kind of not being able to finish the season and still of having the success that they had you know playoff p. Make sure that he earned rightfully earned. He came and he showed up. And i think they all put on display. Why should return. They've got a great coaching staff. They've got great pieces. I think they can make a couple of more moves. Maybe be even be active in the trademark. It a little bit but you definitely want to run it back there. If you're in that position is not easy to be a top four team in the and if you're on a top four team should stay put i think you should retool it and i think you know they'll have a chance to be one of the best teams in the nba. Compete for championship. next year. With a healthy kawai with chris. Because if you're that close to a title if you feel that comfortable about being at home why would you not just stay rehab and then come back if you can at the end of the year and if you can't you give yourself a whole stretch of of being with the staff that You know you develop delete some kind of comfort level with and you've got your own people that can take a look at you whenever you want if i take Take that one more year..

"Right two thousand twenty one. Nba mcgrath cow bone. You're on the clock selecting for the detroit pistons and knelt your pick and explain yourself. Yes oh the first. Pick in the draft here gonna go with kate cunningham six-foot-seven league guard This that that g- absolutely loves. I think he said there's multiple times on the pod but energy everything i've ever said on the pot i've said multiple. Yeah i'll credit you with everything. I say kate at one hundred and three points in the clutch last season that was most among all college players. Second most player had thirty eight fewer points than one hundred and three sixty five points he also made a lot of clutch plays on defense last season. There was one instance against kansas. A second-half to the game was tied at seventy all. Kate had a shot that he blocked it. Kind of helping off on defense dove out of bounds for the ball. Delivered a pass on a rope to a defender led to transition bucket and in open ended up winning that game. It was a top ten win for them. So he's a guy that i think i just rely on. I trust to be like a really high level. Nba player so long term. I think this is the answer here. Kate coming in at number one can argue with it. They're gonna take. And there was a report by jonathan devonian promotion hausky that few more players were getting workouts in with the pistons this week but as i was told wild down in north augusta. The pistons are taking kate cunningham. They're going so anything else is just going through whatever process. They feel like they need to go through. Cunningham has the highest floor. He's going number one. That hasn't been reported yet. But it's going to happen. So barring something stunning or major turn of events. They'll be number one. Gpa you wanna word in on kate or you want me to make this number two selection right here right now. I would just say one more thing. About what the pistons are going gonna do it number one. You guys arrived. I think everybody knows it is almost certainly going to be cake cunningham. It'll be shocking if it's anybody other than k. cunningham but if you're bringing in other prospects if you're the pistons evan mole bleed jalen green like there's no harm in doing that like you get you get your eyes on them. You have a lunch and dinner with them. You don't know where they're going to be some day where you might be some day and it just developing a relationship with somebody who projects as a possible future. Nba all star. Like if you've got an opportunity to do that because of where you're selecting in the nba draft even if you know who you're picking and who you're not picking like sitting down with some of these other guys is there's no there's no harm and it could actually be beneficial somewhere down the road. I agree all right number. Two the the pick seems to be clear to me. Although i don't know if this is going to actually happen next thursday. When the draft commences at the barclay center in brooklyn i got the rockets taken jalen suggs at number two now as will soon discuss as anyone. That's listening to the pod in our draft profile profile episodes that we aren't iran. You know the the one two three four kind of top tier here. I'm going suggs. Because i think he's got the highest upside here. I think he's a tremendous athlete. I can last season. When he ran the offense as a freshman and immediately was very very good. He averaged fourteen point four points. Five point three boards four point five assists did have two point nine turnovers per game but overall thirty four percent beyond the three point arc seventy six percent from the line and then fifty percent from the field overall. He has all star upside again. All star upside rockets. I think would immediately find themselves in a in an upward trajectory with the player like suggs on the roster. We'll see if they have the gumption to actually wind up going with them because mobely is an interesting big jalen. Green is considered the best offensive prospect in the draft by plenty of people. But for me this mock draft. I'm in the number two slot. My a lot of instances. here. I'm going with players. I think is best available. And i did hear about by the way real quick on that when i was talking with some nba. Evaluators down at north augusta. We got to talk in this notion about fit and draft and how guys are projecting they picked and one guy. One person in front office told me when it comes to the top. Ten like with the exception of if there is clearly like a center. And you don't need a center and your needs are quite obviously like in the back core or with some sort of athletic wing or if there's a point guard that's very good scalable but you already have like a top fifteen point guard. That's when you might switch it up. But specifically in the top ten you are trying to identify an ad the best talent possible on your roster and so the evaluator was just kind of saying. Sometimes i think people get too caught up in this idea of trying to build mock drafts and project based off fit when in reality at least in this person's opinion and perspective it's way more like no you've got you've got a big board a one to sixty one to eighty one to one hundred and those first ten fifteen names on the board are. The players are going to be best. And you're gonna pick those regardless in many instances of who you have available on your team. So with that in mind i just think suggs has the high upside and he's number two for me at the rockets. It's something i've been screaming for years now. I don't know that sucks is going to be taking second. I'm not sure that he should be reasonable. People can disagree on that. I don't think it's crazy. You know he's got all the intangibles coaches loved him. The athleticism is there is a winter. All that stuff is there. I don't know that he pops the way. Evan mobely pops or jalen green pops but all the intangibles aaron and as we've seen over and over again for decades in the nba. That stuff absolutely does matter. So if you're picking first second third you should try to take the guy you think. It's going to be best getting caught up in fit. That's that's how you you don't take michael jordan because you've already got clyde drexler in theory. I hear ya boy. Did you miss that one up. So that went up even know. Clyde drexler was future hall of famer. And you still got it wrong. So i didn't know until i saw with my own eyes. How kevin durant james harden and kyrie irving. We're gonna fit together. But when they play they were all healthy. They were awesome. The most important fit you can have an nba franchises pairing awesome players with each other. And that that's what you're shooting for. You're not looking for a wing because you need a winging out looking for a big 'cause you need a big looking for gar gar. You're looking for somebody who's awesome. So if you think jalen suggs is going to be awesome. Then that makes sense to me at number two number three cavaliers picking. I'll go with evan. Mobely the pac twelve player of the year freshman of the year defensive player of the year just a near perfect. I don't wanna throw out. Words like perfect but a near perfect modern big prospect sixteen point four points eight point seven rebounds blocked point nine shots per game. His one season at usc..

"Which is that's what you wanna see for a point guard prospect that you're going to be taking in the top five about the difference between suggs film and marquel full tsa's where yeah fulston become that player but he was losing guys all the time and the handle and crossover. I mean kyrie and one that stuck out to me. I watched the national championship game when they lost to baylor. And you know i'm focusing. I'm laser focused on jalen suggs in those minutes. He wasn't always guarding mitchell. The david mitchell. The the the guy for baylor i you know what i'm focusing on suggs. I saw mitchell break more ankles in just that game then. I saw all the footage. i'm watching. I watched a lot and the to tie that in. What was one of the part. That was really interesting to me. So like in the very preliminary film. I was excited about suggs. And i'll when we end. I'll say kind of early thoughts there because it tells the story but then i watched a game against uva and then we'll watch Senator stuff now is feeling a little low run suggs and so it started with his pick and roll film. Like i do for everybody that we're thinking of a possible point guard and then i i was like okay. Going through the surgery splits and one of the other ones was isolation jalen suggs only seventeen possessions but one point one point two points profession which is phenomenal. I'm like okay. This is we're going to see we're going to see him. Break is down during the else and it was mostly just jalen suggs hitting shots. And that's great. You know hitting tough shots if you can do it at an mba level. You can do but what you want. And it was usually against like some really slow footed be switched onto him. And so that's not what you want to see for a college prospect evaluating them for professional context. You wanna see them. Beat the stuffing out of that player. Whether it's somebody who's like sized or somebody is big and slow you wanna see them. Pulverise that player into a powder and then get get a shot and that wasn't what jalen was doing and that is a big concern now. Suggs has a pretty. I would say it's a very good skill set. If the shot comes around as a secondary playmaker for almost these exact reasons where if you give him an advantage he will do well in that. And that's why i was. I what i was watching his spot possessions. He drives more than he shoots on. Spot possessions spotify classifies. Because it's really like you imagine a spot of as you get the ball with your feet set. What are you going to do with it and suggs. He's confident jump. Shooter wasn't a great one in college and wasn't a great one from what i could tell digging through high school stats. But he's confident which is good but he would drive in those circumstances whether it's finishing himself for two dribbles and a good decision however if that like let's say that's the worst case scenario for jalen songs and he's big enough at six four with six wingspan and i could definitely get stronger to that. He could play some shooting guard and play some off ball. Whether that's at the two or the one defensively but that is not an acceptable outcome for a player in the top five draft especially drafted as well regarded in less. You're in all mba level player at that and he doesn't have the jump shot necessarily so it's like his. I used to overrate players in this exact circumstance but his floor. I think he'd be competent player and a good player on a good team. But it's not that valuable skill set in that. I think that he. I don't think we can always ron. We'll and we'll talk about how this might be wrong. i don't think he has superstar upside. I don't think he has on bef. So i think he could very easily be in kinda that malcolm brogden dinwiddie range as just a solid point guard. Who's going to get paid twenty million a year and be a good starter and give you something on both ends and not. I don't think he has a ton of like terrible weaknesses and again at age twenty. He was for good now. I think it'd be a good time to talk about the situation that he was in. Because you're basically this. Gonzaga team is about as favourable situation as there's ever existed in college basketball for a point guard prospect where they're running all the time they're not not all of their games oregon's high level competition though. They obviously beat all comers until the national championship game and they did have plenty of games against good teams and they did a bunch of switching on defense so he didn't have to do a ton of like getting over screens as i have. The sat on that by the way only had fifteen possessions that they classified as isolation defense in the season. That was that they usually don't classify that many of those in college basketball. So i mean he didn't get attacked certainly but i think there was new. You'd hear the announcers as we were watching. The film talked about him. Being like an unbelievable defendant. I think he's solid but you know he wasn't like a guy who is heating up the ball really getting into guys like that type of defenders more solid positional stuff Get some steals in the passing lanes. I didn't think his hands. Where like unbelievable defensively. I think he'll be a solid op- you know certainly better than most star point guards look in their freshman season. We watched a lot of those guys Any definitely competes. He's got some size is hoping maybe for a little bit more firm as a switch guy on like posts ups and stuff the few that we stop but he also is trying to like not get in foul trouble and stuff. So i i think he can get better there. He's got good strength obviously With the football background. Who's about a year ago. Now that there is that massive shortage of toilet paper remember that even still it seems like you can't get as much as you might want to at the store and that shed some light for me on the idea that toilet paper is not very environmentally. Friendly over twenty. Seven thousand trees are cut down each day to make toilet paper. And that's why now i use real. It's one hundred percent. Bamboo toilet paper. Bamboo grows faster than trees. It doesn't need to be replanted. And it's just a more sustainable material overawed three ply making it both soft and strong. Even the tape is plastic. Free as of course is the rest of their packaging and every.

"jalen suggs" Discussed on Dunc'd On Basketball Podcast

"Hi tend to get into some more draft prospect work here and today's is going to be jalen suggs out of gonzaga. I was really interested to take a look at him after some of the glowing reviews of his tournament performance in particular. Tell us here about dogs. Sure suggs the best measurements. I could find for him listed at six four. Two hundred and five pounds with a six six wingspan suggs was. He was one and done at gonzaga but he turned twenty. This june his rookie year in the nba will be his age. Twenty season From saint paul minnesota. He was the first minnesota athlete ever to win mr basketball mr football in the same year. He was a quarterback and defensive back in a four star prospect in football but he was a five star basketball seventh in our sei and he was. He's played a lot for team. Usa in fiba under sixteen hundred seventeen hundred eighteen. And as i thought about this briefly it was like oh he played football. His name is hugs. Is he related troll interest. yeah Sort of his. He's is data's terrell suggs second cousin. So i was just interested not in also jalen suggs is ridiculous is he played in high school. A chat holmgren who we will talk about about a year from now because he's one of the top prospects in the twenty to draft so the numbers that averaged fourteen point four points. Four and a half assists five rebounds two steals in twenty nine minutes a game on zags sixty percent shooting on twenty-five usage thirty four percent on four point. Eight three for forty minutes and seventy five percent on five point. Three free throws performance. Yeah so the question that there always is to me in looking at a point guard prospect. That might go in the top five. Does this guy have that all nba type of upside to where you're feeling like this guy is going to be your primary ball handler on a really good offence. Your best offensive player. What is your feeling on that having watched jones not overwhelmingly positive. Not as positive as i was thinking so you suggs when when things look good for him. They do look very good. He's physically talented and six foot. Four you kind of wonder like oh if it can work but what struck me watching film in the early part you know. I'm watching unfiltered. Just just random plays on. Offense is like you see the athleticism go through an injustice and positive ones like there are a couple of nights splits of double teams and some good passing in transition. But as i watched more film and as i watched a couple of full games. What stuck with me for suggs offensively. Is that despite all of those things that i do like if it were if we're evaluating him as a point guard if we're evaluating him as the best offensive player on the team he doesn't have the shake like the handle where he's really losing guys are blowing by guys enough. And so when i remember that i mean gonzaga there. They were an unbelievable team. They were undefeated until the last game of the season played new. Wc but this is an mba. He's not like annihilating college talent. And there's going to be a big jump and so that is a big concern for me. Because i thought about you think about the different types of point guards and yes. He's more athletic than somebody like. Mike conley. But i remember when i watch conley in college. You could see that. You're at ohio state. How was going to work. It was a talented pick and roll operator. And so for me suggs. It's more like maybe somebody like drew holiday or donovan. Mitchell where you didn't really see it in the film but they have the physical capability if they work really hard to get there who we may have. Some disagreements on how at the athletic is and we can dial those down a little bit later on. But i i agree with you. That eye watching him. I didn't see what the absolute ridiculous standout skill was. And if i had to pick the two things that might be come that one would be his shooting. You know he shoots it very well on balance. Interestingly shot at much better off the dribble yeah catch catching shoots where he was horrible But you know. I that will sort itself out in time. But he's not like a great free throw shooter. You mentioned only seventy six percent and he would have some bad misses to But you know that was one thing. I think shooting off the dribble i think is something that could get to be a very positive skill for him and then passing would be the other the the thing that where i where i moved off and like oh this is awesome was some of his transition passing that that was really good. Some of the the hit a heads up. Some of the types of passes throws a quarterback even those over the top sorts of looks. Now i didn't see it as much in pick and roll in spread pick and roll Part of that. I think is that he doesn't really draw. The defense in that way is not getting on top of the defense. He's not forcing to on the ball as often to necessarily create the openings that he can then take advantage of. I thought he did a very good job of finding the roll man in pick and roll. Yes not as good of a job finding shooters on the weak side which with his height at the point guard position. You'd think it would be a little bit better at that So but i think where the two things were. I was most unimpressed by him. You hit on one of them which is kinda just the lack of shake You know he's got pretty good acceleration in a straight line but going side to side. He's not creating much separation. His really only has one move that he could rely on to get by guys which was the kind of stand up. Fake like he's gonna shoot it and then do a quick inside out dribble N even that was kind of relying on like getting the defender to stand up using his shooting ability So that was kind of an unimpressive to me as wall just to his. You know if you watch like the ice oh film it's basically all you know. Just the guy back off a little bit and he shoots the jumper. It's not he doesn't really seem to have much of a package in terms of eyeso- ability and he also a little bit of step back type stuff. Maybe but not the stuff where he's just like breaking anybody's ankles..

"Have never in my life been for a game so anticipated. Been just sitting here. Like i cannot believe this is happening and even even as all the talk in the second half is like all right. Uh-huh gonzaga tonight. I honestly like never really felt like ever. I said on the show before this season gonzaga. There's so there's a calming presence about that. I said if they're down ten. I think what i said. It was even if they're down ten with like four minutes left. I'm not panicking. Because they just their so calm cool and collected they were not calm at any point in this game. The moment jalen down four. Nothing in jalen suggs picks up the charging foul. They had like a look in their of lake. What you want to and at no point were even when they cut it to nine. I was like great. You cut it to nine. Like i don't see how you're going to. You cannot stop baylor. so that's cool. You cut it tonight and then snap of a finger.

"Katie. Is to have you back on the show. Thanks for having me so. I'm talking to you because you have the story of the kind of blew my mind and i say that because if there's one player in the men's college basketball tournament i would advise people to know about it would be jalen suggs. These star of the number one overall seed gonzaga bulldogs. He's a freshman. They open their tournament. Tomorrow heavily favored. He's going to be the face of this whole thing in the women's tournament the one name i'd advise people to know about would be page. Bekker's their star freshman the star of the yukon. Huskies who are also a one c and opening their tournament. Sunday against high point. They are the two faces of the game right now. They will be the two faces of the month of march. And what. I didn't know until i read your story. Katie is that they grew up twenty miles away from each other in minnesota and they've been friends since elementary school. How did you discover that page. Bekker's jalen subs. Were this close. I had pursued a tip from my editor. That was a video of the two of them playing rock paper scissors when they were seniors in high school. I had written about page before. So i just asked her. It was like. Are you actually friends with jalen suggs. And she said that she was shocking that to kids from the midwest who live pretty close to each other who both played basketball of course they would know each other. Of course they would be friendly. That wasn't surprising. But as i reported the story and i found out just how deep these routes go that to me was. What made this really special. Yeah you came into the story. I know having reported a lot about page. Bekker's you got to know jalen suggs. It sounds like in the course of doing this along with family members of each of them. How difficult was it to get everybody on the record to talk to you about the specific relationship. Everyone was really excited to talk about this relationship. These two are really good friends. Their families our friends. You're the parents want to celebrate the other one so everybody was really pumped to talk to me

College Basketballs Uncertain Return to the Court

"I on thursday. Tupper beat six rate. Kansas ninety awesome performance and then on friday afternoon mark to the gonzaga coach. Confirm that the zags beat auburn on friday morning. Nine hundred sixty seven after a player believed to be julian straw. They're tested positive for covid. Nineteen so norlander. We're gonna get into next credible opening week on the court second. But let's start here where you surprise in an auburn still played on friday after a gonzaga player test positive. I was surprised because my opinion is that if other teams and i'm not saying all other teams but many other teams were in that situation. The game would not have been played in my opinion. If gonzaga ran into the issues it ran into and it was playing in belleville. gonzaga would not have played. It's game on friday. Gonzaga might not have even played a game against kansas or fill in the other opponent again. If you put it in. And i'm i'm speaking from what i'm seeing here and the protocols and everything that goes into place to even holding this in the state of connecticut okay. Gonzaga had a member of its travel party test positive on thursday gonzaga took two different planes to the event specific and has taken two different buses. It's it's doing specifically to guard against this. But obviously there is no full on guarding against this so we played kansas. And we'll get but then you know at least one player as positive another believed to be The players roommate is kept out as a precautionary reason. And the game goes off because and you can speak to a gp. Frankly we'll we'll get to virginia san francisco the minute but i was i was. I was watching that game. So i didn't hear fuse press conference. I've seen some of what he said. They're the relying on the florida health officials as being the ones that were to clear it and the health officials down there made that determination and it might wind up that that determination is going to be okay in the end. But i've received four text messages from coaches to heads to assistance. All of them basically asking why in the hell is gonzaga in auburn. Being allowed to play right now one of them saying if this was us there is no shot in hell that we would have been able to play and so this this is certainly captured. A little bit of attention around the college basketball world understandably so gonzaga's looked awesome. But you can make an easy argument that it that it should not have a have played the game. What are your thoughts. And then what can you share for the listeners. That might not have seen a about what few said in his postgame. Zoom press conference. Okay so mark was clearly asked about it and he said he kept it very simple. He's did we followed turns guidelines not we tournament guidelines were were in place and established. We had this positive test. And then we follow the guidelines and then the florida health officials came in and they contact tracing how they contact tracing. They told us we were okay. We were cleared to play and we play. He kept it. He didn't really expand anymore than that but listen. They didn't do anything illegal. They possibly did something irresponsible but didn't do anything illegal. They didn't act in defiance of the tournament or florida. Health officials noted that florida as a state hasn't taken covid nineteen that seriously to begin with. So what florida. Health officials were okay. Where quite clearly would be the same thing that said california. Health officials are okay. Wis lucky if they wanted to play the game. They're lucky they were in florida as opposed to to somewhere else. And you're exactly right. It's bubble ville or in south dakota. I don't believe this game would have been played. Wichita state got sent home from south dakota because they had maybe a couple of people in the travel and party test positive. They were like okay. Get outta here. You're not playing today. you're not playing tomorrow. you're not playing it off. So i don't know that this game would have been played if it were a tournament. Where you're at or in south dakota but because this was sort of a thing they put together in fort myers as long. Auburn was cool to play and gonzaga wanted to play. they were allowed to pluck. I though was surprised that the game went off. Because i mean we've seen baseball teams. Get shut down over one positive test during the major league baseball season the world series if it would have if the dodgers did not win the game justin turner had to be removed because they got a positive test back of the game so they take justin turner around. They complete that game. The understanding was that game. Seven of the world series would not have been the following night. They would not have played until everybody can test test test for a few days and they make sure it's safe to play and so yes. I was surprised that they played the game. And hopefully nothing comes from it that it doesn't end up being a quote unquote superspreader of it. Because if we an outbreak now at gonzaga because by the way gonzaga tweet video from the locker room after the victory over kansas and they're all celebrating no mask jewish authors in front of mark. Few right in the middle of the celebration. He is believed to be the one who test positive. So hopefully nothing comes of this but if we have a subsequent outbreak at gonzaga or subsequent at auburn gonzaga is going to become the biggest story in college basketball. And it's not going to be a sports story anymore. It won't be because jalen suggs looks. Incredible it'll be because they knew they positive test in their locker room and they played less than twenty four hours putting their players at risk and the auburn players at risk. I hope it doesn't come to that. But if it comes to that this becomes a bigger story than just to college basketball story. It becomes something that's on. Cbs evening news. Yeah we'll wait and see if that does happen. I mean auburn's gotta be you know held equally responsible and all of this because it opted to play the game regardless you know there was no self imposed penalty here. Handed down by bruce pearl. That was not in play on friday and so inherently like. You know the chances. Go up that you're going to potentially be infected. We don't know but it's clearly out there. I mean there are. There are no shortage of schools and athletic directors coaches. Just straight up would not play the game. So we'll wait arizona. State would not play baylor because the baylor coach tested positive. Not even a player who was who was gonna who was on the court with other players twenty four hours earlier right and that came from that even came from above. Bobby's hurley's bobby hurley's had which is the case in a lot of these instances but frankly what gonzaga auburn decided to do it. Just flies in the face of convention in college sports in professional sports that we've seen and we'll will you know we're recording this on friday afternoon. We'll wait and see what's going to happen here. Gonzaga's got some high profile games ahead and we're really enough one of them's blade baylor like if there's if there's one team that's actually going to be good with this like it's baylor. They might just play the game regardless. But we'll wait and see if either of these teams are now forced because if it gets another positive one after that like they have no choice. They're going to have to shut down for two weeks and then ask themselves if playing against auburn was really worth it you know. Was it worth it. Because now you're gonna lose these other games
