"There was a lot of stuff coming out from aaron. Even did you know different interviews and stuff in regards to it kind of giving them like his subliminal demands. A what what could make this work giving you some indication that maybe just maybe we'd be able to mend these fences. Ben simmons has done nothing of the sort like he's just said chilin he's chilly he's not doing any press. He's not answering any questions about it. he's just coming. And i won't play for the sixers again now. I am not in ben. Simmons is camp. So i don't i don't know if he's just playing a really good game hardball or if he really believes that but from the sixers perspective yes you want the man back. I get it but i would make the argument at this point. That if he's not there this year and he doesn't make his money I don't see how that really helps you as a at the sixers sixers. Okay right like yeah. You're going to spite him. You're gonna cut off your nose despite your face so to speak got it now. I'm not are more. I get it you. You ain't afraid. I understand but if you bring him back this year i don't think you get great version of ben simmons. If for some reason you guys can fix that and get them in the building and he doesn't want to lose all of this money and so he reports so he doesn't have to lose the money. I i think that's a bad thing to have around your organization right now full disclosure. I don't know what teams are offering for. Ben simmons like. I wouldn't be in the habit of giving them away for bag of chips either so that plays into it as well but if there's a deal that's palatable and you're going to get some stuff that can really supplement. Ben simmons into by ben simmons. I'm sorry joy lead into by his harris and some of the pieces. you have. I think you do that because this is going to be a mess. Whether he's staying away all year and people are answering questions. And there's this massive hole in your lineup. Or if he comes back in is like a shell of himself. It doesn't want to be there and doesn't get along with his teammates either. Way it's a shit show what you don't want as what we saw last year would james harden and where he's comes out of he comes to to your camp after he told you all summer i would like to. I don't wanna be here after he told you and you brought him back to camp and he came back overweight. You saw the memes and things like that. He's just passes the people's feet he's not even shrimping correct and he's making his team as pissed at him. You don't want that to happen. Because they're in a totally different situation than the rockets where the sixers and totally different situation. The rockets where last year and that they are trying to compete for a title to derived dot habits there no window right now and you don't want that to seep into the locker room and let's be real man. All these feelings are valid right. When you about ben simmons wanting to be traded of course he wants to be traded dog. You'd fucking said that he's not he didn't even say that you said basically that he couldn't win with you with him on the roster you said that along the fact after a playoff game in which he missed those free throws it was not clutch down the stretch of time when he needed his team to have his back. They did not so okay. it's untended wash. should it be here. You see it from the sixers vantage point. Y'all man. how many times are you going to not be clutch in a postseason series and come up short. How many times you're gonna do that from the sixers vantage point. And then you see it from joel. Embiid point where yo if there's honesty all the time it's from joel. Embiid he said all. This is borderline Kinda disrespectful was his works. He was like y'all man we actually made the roster in your eyes to fit a longer. You're in your game. Play and ben simmons we made a roster to where we got shooters we got players that can play alongside you and it still didn't work..

"Now the the one thing that i can't put my finger on it you might have a better feel for it than i do is what james wiseman looks like right now like why. Where is he his evolution to being a contributor on a championship level team. Do you have to be not a world less than i do. have some. I do have some insight but go ahead. yeah. And i'm saying not not not a hall of famer not not reaching his potential as a as a high pick like that. I'm just talking about. Can he be a solid contributor that you can count on in a championship run. And if those things align i would not cal golden state. They wouldn't be a favorite of mine. But i would put them in the mix to be. You don't wanna see them. I promise you that yeah. I don't know where wiseman is right now in terms of how he can contribute to a team right now because he hasn't played any games right. Well what i will say is. I talked to him This summer for story. I'm doing. It's gonna come on a couple of weeks now beyond a albion on the lookout for that It so i Saga to him and like you really see that he wants this bro. Like he really wants this This season workout. He really was. You could tell that. He was kind of affected by Last year with the injuries with Can call covert and then also other rookies playing better than he did right. You know the the anthony edwards of the world the lamelo balls of the world who got a lot of acclaim after their first year. And they're already writing this dude off. And so i saw that i listen. I heard that on a we had a phone call about the about a month ago and then Also seen him up close at practice even like the post practice stuff where he's taking every drove very seriously in the way that like sometimes you just want to tell him to relax like if you miss a shot. It's not the end of the world right but there's a lot If he misses his shot thuc right or something. Like that. or things. Like that to where you're saying you know he wants this. You just want to tell them just to settle down and just let the game come to you. But he's like yo man. I needed this year. And so there's a lot of fire under james wise but you could see. I just want i. Just if i was a coach. I want him to channel. Okay yeah it's okay. You got this relaxed. Yeah because i was gonna say you got to harness. That could be that. That's that's a dangerous area. I've lived in that area where there's so much riding on it in your mind that when it goes well it's great and if you will and if it goes bad you've just built up so much unneeded pressure like yeah that that it really is counterproductive. So but i think. Steve kerr is great For that in their style. And i want to go back to something because you talked about nash. Those guys just real quick mention inside the type of camp that it looked like like you said they looked like it was all vibes..

That class was headlined by james wiseman and precious a two of this class headline by ahmadi bates. And jalen darren cow. You had written about the amani situation earlier in the week and predicted like most other debates would woodland at memphis so no surprise but we did take a twisted path to get here for people who might be unfamiliar.

He woke up on wednesday morning and he was big mad at somebody leaked something. He was furious and suggested that the announcement would no longer happened instead. We'd be doing this on friday night. Which is fine with me. I got nothing else to do. So i was planning on friday night then at some point on wednesday afternoon a bates name showed up on the university of memphis white pages directory which suggested he was already enrolled at the university of memphis so we had this weird situation where a prospect who had not yet publicly committed to a school was theoretically already enrolled in a school at that point.

Warriors Reject Sixers’ Steep Asking Price for Ben Simmons
"Sixers are asking the Warriors per keep pumping, who covers the sixties for The Philadelphia Inquirer for Andrew Wiggins, James Wiseman, the seventh pick in tonight's draft, the 14th pick in tonight's draft. And to future first round picks. So four first round picks. Wiggins and Wiseman. Basically That's six first round picks if you think about it. 7 14 to future. Wiggins was an early first round pick, and James Wiseman was just the second pick in the draft. So if you want to say, because Wiggins played in the league for a little bit hit, and he's kind of been underwhelming. Wise, but at least they're still has that potential. Even after his first season, it's basically Wiggins And five first round picks for Ben Simmons. If I'm the Golden State warriors. I'm glad they said no. And I don't think that price is going to be met for Ben Simmons.
Why USC's Evan Mobley Is the Best Big in the 2021 Draft
"For the next two months in advance of the two thousand twenty one nba draft that is scheduled for july twenty nine. We're going to be dedicating an episode of beyond college basketball. Podcast to notable prospect. Same way we did in advance of last year's nba draft. We started this series last week with a twenty two minute profile of kate cunningham. If you missed it and you're interested don't find it today. We will turn our attention to another prospect who seems like lot to go in the top five of the two thousand twenty one nba draft. His name is evan mobile. he's a seven foot center. Who averaged sixteen point four points. Eight point seven rebounds. Two point nine blocks in two point four assists in thirty three point nine minutes per game in his one season at usc shop fifty seven point eight percent from the field. He was the pac twelve player of the year freshman of the year and pac twelve defensive player of the year. He was a consensus second team. All american who led usc to the elite eight of the ncaa tournament. Most mock drafts have him second or third in this. Two thousand twenty one. nba draft. So let's start with this dead leg. Is evan mobely to you clearly. Unquestionably the best big in this rat. Yes i think. That is unquestionable. We agree. I mean at this point. How about this. How about this for a quick complica- compare him to a recent big one. He played against and was good against james wiseman to me mobilize more versatile player with the higher upside and a year ago in a weaker draft. Class what's interesting is wise men went second moby might wind up going second or third we mentioned in the previous partly sided. I don't think he's going to go. I in this draft because of centers. And how they're viewed and how their role is changing By the year but it is interesting like if you put mobile wiseman even knowing what wise. Men's out like a year ago i would have said the same thing i think i would still take mobely over wise men coming out of college and we agree on the sofa. If we agree there yes mobis got to be the best big available in this

2021 NBA Draft Big Board
"Time to do some updates on the big board and like i said before these big boards are based off a consensus at the end of the day between nba scouts. General managers. that. I'm talking to right now about where they have. These guys ranked them not ranking them. According to team needs this is not a mock draft and for the most part those nba scouts and general managers win the day. If i disagree with them but everybody has a guy higher than me then. He goes higher If there's a tie sometimes then you know. I may come in and put my finger on the scales but what i'm trying to do here is report. What i think is the general consensus from nba teams. And i want to start with the top five because these top five right now. I will do my tears column towards the end of the draft right before the draft happens usually about a week or two before the draft. But if i were to do it today i would say that. There's as many as five guys who are looking like tier one guys if you remember from last draft when i did my tears column. I personally didn't have any guys in tier one talking to nba teams and be scouts. While there was guys that got votes for tier one. Like lamelo ball. Anthony edwards james wiseman ultimately none of them got the fifty percent threshold to move into tier one. If i if i were betting man right now and for that particular survey to a pretty wide swath of nba teams and general managers and scouts. I'm thinking that there might be as many as five tier one prospects in this draft right now. So we'll start at the top. He was number one a big board. One point oh he stays number one here in big bore two point okayed cunningham. The point forward freshman out of oklahoma state. Who who's been really everything that he was advertised to be as the one of the most complete players in the draft who plays one of the most important positions in the draft wing. He's averaging eighteen points a game six rebounds a game nearly four assists the game one and a half steals a game. He shooting thirty nine percent from three. Which i think was definitely one of the swing skills for kate cunningham. That teams had coming in. How well of an outside shooter is he going to be and so far. The numbers look really good on that end. If there's an issue with kate cunningham right now and i think it's an interesting one. It's that he has not been a particularly careful with the ball. He's averaging three and a half turnovers a game which is which is pretty high and he has a lot in this oklahoma state offense. They rely heavily on him which means at times. He's forcing things. But that's the one red flag. If i'm looking at you know just sort of overall the numbers and what's going on where the red flag might be. It's that again. Three point five turnovers jumps to about three point eight in this per thirty six. And that's the one that i would that i would be careful about watching because his reputation coming in was that this is one of the steadiest playmakers that you're going to find his ability to see the game to be afford leader very high and that assist to turnover ratio is really the only major war that i can really see on statistical profile right now and again. I think you have to caveat that some by the fact that you look at the team that he's playing on and how teams can really game plan for him every night that there are reasons why i think that cunningham might not have the highest assist to turnover ratio at least one that we would expect.

Nba we've got five games announced in the nba Maverick's aunt lakers pelicans add heat. Golden state warriors will visit the milwaukee bucks. That's going to play the celtics. So that's a kyrie irving revenge game if you believe in that kind of stuff and then We got the clippers and denver. I believe that's gonna be the last game of the night. But what. I'm looking at his. Luka doncic shaw getting a showcase game against the lakers christmas day. That's going to be a great introduction for the five or six people that watch basketball.

"Yeah. The Warriors would do that deal in R P Not available to them. I have not heard I know that the Warriors have at least you know, looked it up in the same way. Everybody looks it up to my understanding. They haven't made any calls to my understanding. They don't think that it's a realistic possibility. James Harden wants to go to the Nets. That's what he wants to do. He hasn't made a secret. Maybe maybe he will expand his list in the days to come. Don't think that that trade package is enough to get a guy like James Harden. Not when we've seen what it costs to get true holiday. Now you see what it's cost to get a Paul George. The prices on some of these guys are absurd. And James Harden is an M V P caliber player. Do I like the way he plays? Basketball? No. He's an MVP caliber player. So if the Warriors wanted to get it, it's going to cost more than that. Because James Wiseman say what you will Was a little bit better when he was the number two overall pick. And by that, I mean, it's a little bit better before you actually know what the what is inside the mystery box. People get excited for things. That they don't know yet. Now it's James Wiseman, you go. What is what is James Wiseman? Did you? The Warriors are the highest James Wiseman. James Wiseman is most valuable to the Golden State warriors because they're the ones who convinced themselves that he was the right pick. And I'm not saying they're wrong. I'm just saying That's their guy. Might not be the Rockets guy. It's a thought. It's a thought. As for Hassan Whiteside, Culture matters. Hassan Whiteside hurt your culture. Well, stop. That's that's my official stance on it. I don't think he's worth the trouble for the Warriors. I don't think they have that much of a needed center. And if they do have that need, they can certainly use the DP down the line to get somebody better. And Hassan Whiteside's alright we like to play the best of in these waning hours of the show curtain back in for will until 10 P.m. on the sports leader..

"Yeah, that's really the hardest part is you're making judgments and saying going, but with your beliefs, but that that is true. None of us know. And nobody's ever known, and I think when you know it's easy to look back and all that stuff. I mean, everybody myself included. You Look back on your the time you felt like you hit a home run instead of instead of the numerous strikeouts we've had on thinking the guy's gonna be really good. And he was a But you know, this year there's a ton of that stuff like I think we're kind of in a period or at least I feel like I'm in a period where I've had I've had to it just the way I look at game because I've always liked James Wiseman to me from Memphis. Five years ago, 10 years ago, he would have been the number one pick, and we would have discussed it because he's 71 mobile can shoot it. I mean, he's what used to be number one pick stuff. And now that big guys were like running backs in the NFL, you know, it's like, OK, well, unless unless it's Derrick Henry. You know, we get the their dime a dozen and we just use them up and we get a big guy, A serviceable big guy on the open market anytime we want. And I don't. I don't look at the game that way, Jake. This is real. It's interesting because I think of you as being uncommonly expert with a lot of this stuff, and you're telling us that it's hard for you to analyze basketball because it's never been played the way it's being played right now. Little bit little bit like you're kind of looking at is a big guy is valuable. And why not? And so he's gotta be. You know, we're not seeing low post big eyes. That's why the biggest surprise in the draft for me was that Big guy from Kansas. You don't as a bookie got drafted in the first round because I didn't see him as a first round pick my thing with the guy you they don't score outside of 5. Ft. Can't make a free throw, but he can. He can block a shot. He can He can rebound and around the basket he fixes like he set a record for field goal percentage for the incidental A. It is In his time of Kansas. Um, So you know that one didn't make a lot of sense to me. And, uh, and a couple other things that didn't make some sense throughout the draft. I mean, we saw a bunch of guys like you saw the shift in You know the value of these three Andy guys, what they call guys that can make a perimeter shot and that can guard multiple position, especially switch. So you had guys like, um, you know, like Devon vous l And, um, uh, guy, you know all these different different players that could do that. Isaac Koro who's gonna have the uh you know, become a better shooter. There's a bunch of guys like that in the draft that that did really well and got taken a little bit higher you'd expect and some other guys you thought would get taken got pushed into the second round. Bobby marks of gave us a stat yesterday that I couldn't believe you know, the last 20 years here, 2000. 70% of second round picks Don't really make it like they just you know their cup of coffee players and and I thought it would be, I thought would be a higher number than that. Honestly, because you tend to look at the success is like a dream on green or something like that. That comes out of second round. And becomes a really good player. There has a long career out of second round. It really doesn't happen that often. J. What's the draft term you used last night? Because I was laughing at you? I was thinking about the podcast is well, was it that you're tired of using? Was it motor or wing span? All of it because you can't. If you're going to talk about 60 players, you're going to repeat yourself. And it's like if they put 60 different sports cars up there. You know you're going to say the same thing over and over again, or 60. Different like I wind up watching these cooking shows lots and for some reason, like I'll watch, beat Bobby Flay or Chop during the pandemic, and the judges say the same stuff all the time. And I watch it anyway, because it's like it's like I watched the competition of it. That is, if you make me laugh. Perhaps you made this whole thing sounds a little bit sad. Like you fight you love college basketball. You love professional basketball. You love basketball. You love talking. You love talking about basketball. You've made this all sound sand. A little. But after you after you go through the draft, that was my 18th draft, and and I do kind of laugh about, you know, the drinking game of me saying wingspan. But you know, after a while like it is it is instructive about some of these players and link they have because that makes them disruptive Defenders. You know, it really doesn't matter how tall somebody is. I don't care along your neck is less your Blocking a shot with your forehead. It matters how long your arms are and what you're standing reaches. What your wingspan. It But after you talk about that, and people hear it a number of times they don't want to hear it anymore. And even when you're doing a game, um you'll you'll repeat something during the course of a game. As our bosses tell us, you know, the research shows that most people don't watch the entire game. So they'll tell you repeat your best stuff. So something you say in the 1st 10 minutes of the game. Don't think that just because you said it. You don't need to say it again. You don't need to repeat it. So you hear from people saying Why did you? Why did you say that? Three times. We heard you the first time. I thought he can't explain all that stuff. It's just the way the business works before we let you go. We do have to let you go on your 18 years. And I say this is someone who said that the Owen 16 Detroit Lions. We're gonna make the playoffs. What's the most wrong? You've gotten it with something you said on the draft show. Dwight Howard. I thought when Dwight Howard came out of high school That hey, was unskilled and he was just a spectacular athlete and back then I wasn't sure that that was enough. And so I thought, you know what America Okafor is eyes a finished product and he's the safer pick. And then you go.

"When he suffered. What was described to me is a lower right leg injury. Mrs. Nightmarish, this is nightmarish. All championship hopes out the window. Those the words of Stephen A. Smith. It's hard to disagree. At this point, The Warriors were coming off a 15 and 50 season. They didn't even basically make it to the bubble. But you get a healthy staff to get a healthy play. You add the number two pick, which turned out to be James Wiseman and boom. We're right back in this thing, but hang on a second. Almost all of that is true. Except for the clay Thompson part suffering an injury yesterday while working out in Southern California M R I On the way Steve Kerr the team trainers are on their way to Los Angeles to be with Clay Thompson. Let's bring in Bobby Marks. He joins us this morning on the shelf. His oil performance line. He spent more than two decades inside the Nets front office. So put your front office cap on this morning if your general manager Bob Myers of the Golden State Warriors, Bobby what is the organization thinking this morning hours after the draft and hours away from probably knowing some of the severity of clay Thompson's latest injury? Yeah, I'm shifting towards the tone market. You go from the draft last night, and now I'm looking at what does that 17 $9 told exception. Get you, Um York O'Connell Gideon insurance policy with the news of clay and They also wanted to try to use that the builders your bunch here, So you're looking down rosters and seeing what makes sense, but it's that exception inspires on I believe on Monday on the 23rd year, so Yeah, It's a speaking, It's a shame. You know, I had a nice my loser of the night. And it wasn't because James Rassmann pick it was because of television set the tone with, you know, it's injury, the Clay Thompson and we wait and see. But yes, you have that exception to try to figure out if you can, you know, go out and you know, uh, you know, quiet time strayed from us in the creation sampling you looking at As you know, you know the minimum salaries that $5.700 Paxman level shooting position of Marquis class for us three agents out there. So yes, potentially top 14 in the Western Conference now probably came just fighting to get into the playoffs if he had if he has a long term injury here How does the James Wiseman pick at number two impact the roster now for the gold State warriors? Starting center right up the band. I think supervising out there, you know, but you know when you're going to training camps in place You know 2025 words. I'm I like what they did I see that into that panic and all the sudden you could lose that place hurt and they go on, son. You arrested last making the board moving guys around and didn't have and back and I gotta get shooting staff. They begin. They said, you know. Hey. Means the best player on number two. Pick it or deal with clay injury tomorrow, and we go. We go from there, so I always said, though, uh, she's on that one thing you want to do, And there was a lot of talk about the art of the possible the back draft. These guys Impossible. What nice Let's see where they are. And Several marginal treated lengthens around. Maybe there's you know when you have that, And you have your dad. Minnesota put, you know, maybe there is an all star out there that you can try to go get. There's a little bit proven Sure. So, um I like the wisemen tough. I think your son of hope, you know, But like most of these kids, you know they're still isn't there Some time Learning times four Bobby marks, ESPN MBA front office inside of joining us here on Qi shot J will and Zubin this morning. Who won the draft Bobby last night. Who got the best? What else Here? I ain't one to drop because once again, the shortest the only training any contracts and move on with the hearts of opportunity that Wonderful night with Jenkins in transfers from island to get 21 20 Nazi and then around halftime, And so, um, those front just officials from the dash and that sectarian Don't boil the first, the first night of both love and money bound. Stop. That roster will see what sentences is from a high school point. But Everyone. I'm so lucky to not have broken general with the Clippers. They work that kind of sacrifice. You're drafted, but the one from when that players wonderful. I'm Angie Shannon. And what? The Clippers with Luke Duke tonight, So you know more than what was that? Bobby Bar Scott. I love talking to you because you're like a beautiful mind. And you can. Can you play chess, not checkers. I still want to go back to Golden State because last year when they traded D'Angelo Russell for Wiggins, I believe that that pick was made so that they can eventually move. Wiggins. And that's why you know, it was a lot of reports saying that maybe they were going to move the pick. And maybe and Wiggins and now they have Ah, wrench in that, of course, would play But you know the deal that fell through with about Donna Bitch Do we see being potentially him being someone that can go and go to say words can capitalize on breaking him in and have like a many big three all over again. As you said, your challenge with back then it's just because of you know, you saw in Milwaukee. It was different with you only require player. The science room.

"University. Who else you know, gotta intro like that. And then you. Edwards was the recipient of that honor. Wednesday night, Going first in the 2020 NBA draft to the Minnesota Timberwolves. And tonight What's it like? So walk into the professional athletic spaces, a young cat with the proverbial weight of the franchise on your shoulders. So this is a really good situation for Anthony Edwards. You know, I was in a situation when I got drafted where our team was like losing games. And you know you have all that expectation. And now he's walking into a Minnesota team that has D'Angelo Russell and also Karl Anthony towns to all stars from the past season and so like the pressure's on them, all he has to do is sort of use the benefits of playing with them to make. Life easier for himself like he will get better looks because he's playing with talent off the job, So I think the Timberwolves they made it really, really safe choice that was smart. Probably the most talent in the most potential. Upside combined in one is Anthony Edwards, But regardless we always judge number one picks like Oh, you're number one, you better deliver. It might be a little different because he's actually walking to a squad with a little bit of improvement. They could be in the playoffs. Well, we know that the Golden State Warriors got plenty Around James Wiseman. Now that is all dependent upon Clay Thompson being okay, We're waiting on more information from that injury to come out, but surrounding specifically James Wiseman. His fit within the warrior's organization is what Seamlessly subtly good. That's how I'd describe James Wiseman in the sense that I think the Warriors knew that, regardless of how things going, especially as the news came through with play being injured, that they weren't gonna use this to shift their plans, because guess why you still have Steph Curry over there. You still have Andrew Wiggins. You still have dream on green like just because clay might be in a situation that's tough doesn't mean that this changes the entire trajectory of their their team. And so they stayed the course. And they got James Wiseman and I think Is a subtle, safe move, because when you have a big to his caliber, he 71 I think, like 2 40 talented. They always like Biggs that are, like sort of low key, But that's what you're getting here, like, Ah, young player that can blossom under your system, but also has tremendous potential and upside that you can mold to fit. I mean, when we talk about warriors, Biggs we're talking about Festus Ezeli. Andrew begins as a patrol. Yah, not like huge names. So now you're getting a big name through the number two pick, so the potential is there and I think they went You played it safe. Shinobu McKay from today going Junior. Joining us here on SportsCenter all night, whichever scales and guts tonight. Look, I want to know what pick from last night is one that no one will really be talking about. Throughout the rest of today and beyond. But is somebody that six out of your mind as an ideal placement? I have really Maybe because I'm a professional women's basketball player and we play overseas. You know that trav like hey, played in Italy. I played in China. My sisters played in Russia, too, and Poland and so I always look at. You know, foreign players and a lot of people may not know them, but I'm sort of always intrigued by them. And I think, Denny a visa. I can't even say his name correctly. I probably messed that up. I hate it because I'm like one of those people who gets their names mist up, Okay, but The point being is, you know, making history as being the highest taken player out of Israel, and also like we have sort of the Luca Don should situation where this man's been a pro since he's been, you know, younger like 15, 16 and 16. He was on the top team in Israel and a lot of top players playing that Israeli league. And so I think, you know, going to the Wizards that need another scorer and can really bolster their options when they get someone that is just professional already and can pass to and play with potentially John Wall and Bradley Bill like this was a cool, sneaky good. Jacob. I always like, sort of like to look at the global aspect. You know, it's the Porzingis factor where we don't really know who he is, and then turns into a star. I think Luca don just re framed our minds like we can't look past these foreign players because they have been playing pro earlier than we tend to do here in the states. And I think Danny is gonna be interesting to follow a woman Kate, just flexing the knowledge, knowing that she is much better with foreign players and you will ever be. And that's all right. Right here on SportsCenter all night and look today. I want to know, too, in two different ways, best fit of the NBA draft in both the attire and also franchise. This one is a layup. You tried to get me trav, but this one's a real layup. It's low, mellow ball going to Charlotte, 100%. 1st of all, He played it safe with his out films about playing it safe, like making picks that people no sure bet talents like he went all black. But then he did the monogram on the back. I think that's his brand, and then he had that same brand on a chain. So like he kept it classy and kept it clean with all black but then put his flair on it literally on the suit and then also on his chain. And I mean Charlotte, we all know that they need Star. They need someone to talk about, because that's the sort of been in the periphery. The person we talk about the most when it comes to Charlotte is Michael Jordan and what he's doing, And so finally they get someone that people will actually want to watch and see in the sense that I've been really excited about the pentagram, one of the most improved candidates on that team, but like with Lamell, a ball there, and he having the ball in his hands, that's must watch TV. Even if it's like, Oh, well, I don't buy into the hype. Well, guess who does the young generation the young kids out there, so I think the mellow ball fitted, suited and booted. Was on point just going, you know, keeping it less is more. But then it's like the opposite that, like Charlotte got more is more when it came to him playing and also generating some energy. Like if you're not gonna be the playoffs, potentially like might as well get some energy and build towards something. And the melon ball Tex both of those boxes without questions, OK, joining us here on SportsCenter all night and dug We're gonna pivot to current story lines with current players in the NBA. James Harden is at the top of everybody's mind when it comes to potential moves via trade and free agency and everything that's happening there. The likelihood that he stays in Houston, your hometown is what Not likely not likely at all. Unfortunately, like the rocket's in my blood for James Harden to say he wants out. It hurts, but I don't blame him because at this point, it's like he's trying to buy himself. He's tried it with Dwight Howard. He's tried it with the small ball. He's tried it with Chris Paul. He's trying it with Russell Westbrook. Like what's gonna work, And at this point like you lean into, I think he's 31 years old. Lean into your prime. If that means somewhere else. That's cool. As long as we get the value back. That is all I ask. I don't want like, Oh, he's gone. We just have to make a deal. No, no, no. You know, make the right deal, and I think what you're seeing right now through the GM Raphael Stone. He's sort of flexing his muscles saying, like we understand that you might feel some type of way Russ and most notably James Harden instead. Why don't we just focus on you know, let's get the best deal. And if it means you have to show up because the seasons in about a month like December 22nd is coming soon, you might have to show up to training camp. Maybe people are sitting out of that. Maybe people are, you know, I think James Harden's workers so he'd still show up do his job. But if this carries into the next season, I feel like we don't press the panic button..

"We talked about it every week, and then he goes out and shows you But the offense has become more college like there's so many arts go get, he's so you know politically, he's learning how to throw the ball, which Lamar's not being taught how to throw the football, you know, in a more expansive way, and that's why I wish remark could be an offense like Tyler. And I think that because Carly's gonna the full measure of who he is into the future, because that that is the future, not you cannot have Nick Foles. Nick Foles are guys that can't move. Are not going to get jobs in the future because there's too many yards out there to go get with your legs That coach would say, Look, I can't have a quarterback that I have to go earn three or 45 1st downs with their arms that they could get with their legs. So I just don't I think a guy that can't show any mobility will not have a shot in the NFL. You just like the scrambling quarterback was so unusual when I played, I think just the opposite The guy that can't move. It's gonna be the obsolete one. It is interesting watching you go. I'll just go ahead, Tommy. Go ahead. I was just gonna say it is interesting watching the the bootleg game. Now we're guys do get outside. I like the way you to me the way when you boot leg to Charles Haley in the 94 NFC championship game. To me. That was it was like Dallas was not prepared for that extra element of the game. And it was like the one thing they couldn't defend. Was you on the bootleg? You know, running naked, basically nail polish a huge advantage. Larry and we didn't take advantage of it the way we should have. You know, the game should have to me the game that they're playing today. I should have been able to play Because there's no reason not to have the guy come out of the huddle. We had quarterbacks sweeps. We had two plays in the playbook. But there was such a feeling that they shouldn't. We shouldn't do that. Can't do that too much. And you could see today that the media would know what maybe the rules and the way that we are to play. Be able to play defense. The way you're able to the quarterback the way you control the middle of field, all the stuff we talked about every week. Maybe it just wouldn't have worked. And so, man. Maybe I'm just wishful thinking, but there's no question That being able to move was unique back then. And then you come in tow. I've never Matt Millen tacking on my like this, and he just cursed me out about running it like that. I'm gonna kill you. I'm gonna kill you. I remember turning now. You can't catch me anyway, that so I'm not worried about what The Warriors pick is in. And according to Shams, sure, Ania of the athletic it will be, as expected. James Wiseman out of Memphis, so they're going to state warriors have selected James Wiseman. As their 2020 draft pick. Go ahead, Tommy. I think Steve's in favor of that pig. Why not say so? You just, uh way we're going to be better and better wave Look II. When does it all do we have a covert tester? We're gonna have 30,000 people. Now. They happened right there happening. No, it doesn't look good. No, no, no. The city said we're shit out. E mean, he very well may be but politicians, they're not gonna put their jobs on the line. Because a guy wants to have 9000 people at a basketball game. So they said, Thank you, but not right now. Thank you. Yeah. E just heard. I heard that you guys talking about the other day. I thought maybe that was gonna happen. Yeah, they let me let me ask you about Chancy Gardner Johnson, all the blitzing he was doing in the Saints game because I said it Mondays, Steve that if if Fox has enough time to build a graphic for this guy and show you where he's coming from all the time. I would think the coach is there. Somebody built a figure that out and keep him from being as effective as he was added throughout the course of the game. Who was that on? Is that on the coaching staff or not invaded for failing to make the proper adjustments? Is it on? Uh, the quarterback for not recognizing that every time he's up at the line of scrimmage? He's coming. Is it not up to the running back to say, Hey, he's here. I got him for you mean Is it a combination of all the above? Well, remember, we went through this couple weeks ago with my experience with their 1st 20 plays last year, and I remember I went with you know Tim Kyle today where you do versus policy? That's good against everything. So that was shocking to me Like, what do you mean? It's going to be serving? Nothing's going against everything. Everything leads back on the quarterback. What you talking about? You can't let the quarterback off the hook. You know, it's gotta be something you have to kind of deal with. And which tells me that he didn't devices plays it. He thinks he can get done without having to worry about those kinds of blitzes. And so if that's getting if that's effective, I've had I not honest with after the study a time ago, ask him and figure it out. You just won't know. But I got to suspect that he can't constant success. Would be on the coach right at the end of the day. It's unless the less the quarterback was just foolish, which Nick is He's not a He's not even using already. Everybody's fool. He's not. You confuse constantly, and then it becomes what? Maybe it was the line that couldn't track him. I mean, all three of possible you have to go study it, but I could. In the end, it's get like Kyle's gonna take it Take it to himself because he's responsible for making sure that he can put put people the situation be successful. Yeah. All right. I brought this up earlier on. We were talking about some of the basketball players that I played against that I didn't wanna I don't wanna mess with. They were just a little screw loose and you're just thinking I don't want to. I really don't want to get into it. I'll battle them. But I if I had to, I probably wouldn't like my chances against this person because there is a little off. Who was that? For you on the opposing team. Who you just thought this guy's dis doesn't seem quite right. Well, there's two ways to think about it, Tom. There's a guy that screw loose, but I'm not afraid of them. Like John Randall was a nutcase. He was like he he would paint his face. And like all these kind of concocted blacks like lines and yellow and green and he painted space, you come out. You're like You almost want to say what? You know. How did you Wow, That is really interesting. How you did that today? That's true lashing. Look, and he talking, screaming, yelling and You know, you just never stopped talking. And you're just like, Wow, you You just got the feeling that is not all. Not all squared away with John. You know, I was like, I felt so form a little bit like John, are you okay? Hey, way need to. You know, you meet support of some kind, like, but I never as a player. It wasn't that worried about him. The guy that worried me that was less You know, kind of cowardly was Kevin Greene degrees the kind of guy that like if you might carry a knife, like tired, excited to see him football uniforms like literally like there might be a little little pocket..
Breaking Down Tonights NBA Draft: The Players, The Picks, and Virtual Fashion
"Mike schmidts. Thank you for joining me mandy day that you work towards every single year has finally arrived. Yeah i feel like this is our our super bowl and we've been waiting for this forever. I we thought it was going to be in june. And then maybe october and now here in november so you know i think teams and myself are very excited to get this one of the books. Mike schmidts is an nba draft analyst for espn. And he's been traveling the world scouting nba prospects for nearly a decade. I love the nba. draft personally. I went to the draft at the garden. Growing up in new york as a sad knicks fan and i still love the draft. Which tells you something about my own personal pathologies. The weirdness of this draft mike. You said it. This is going to be held in a way that has never been seen before. It's going to be entirely remote adam. Silver the commissioner. Mark tatum the deputy commissioner. They're going to be reading out. Picks live from espn studios in bristol. Where you are right now. So tell me what it's been like for teams and for players to go through this whole draft process in the midst of a global pandemic. It's been very very challenging for teams and players alike from the team side. They're used to having march madness the nba draft. Combine tournaments like portsmouth invitational. Which is where you see. You know a jimmy butler and some of these seniors pop up. They're able to have their individual workouts one on one workouts team workouts. I really have these guys in their building and this pre-draft process that just simply hasn't been the case so think you have teams kind of relying on a lot of these zoom calls right. We've all been kind of zoom jail more or less for the last few months You know they're relying on film. They're relying on intel and then from the players perspective. I think they just want to finally hear their name called. I mean this is the moment that they've been waiting for their entire lives. And so i feel a lot of these kids just having to have this. Push back and push back in push-back. They've each had very different circumstances. I mean some guys are like in the gym working out with nba players. Every day. some are with you know their brother and their cousin and some empty. Jim just one on getting workout. Since so it's been very strange. I guess the thing. I think of when i think about what might be lost in this iteration of the draft like are they going to be suits mike. Are we gonna get like nba draft fashion. That we've been blessed by in the past. Oh we're getting it it's coming it's coming virtually you're not gonna see that same strut the same level of excitement that we generally get in barklays within walking up on the stage but from everything i've seen out on social media everything i've heard. I think the suit game is still going to be strong. Yeah i just want if one of those guys wanna go retro and bring back like the seventeen but in suit. I just wanna make sure. The camera frame contains all seventeen of those budgets. We're gonna do everything we can to get that done. I hope we really really highlight the fashion. Because that that might steal the night to be honest i want to take a deep dive into the top three players in the draft to start here because the three of them. You've been talking about relentlessly for months. Now lamelo ball. James wiseman anthony edwards. They're all still in play for the number one overall pick which belongs of course to the minnesota timberwolves and i want to start with lamelo because we know as the brother lonzo the son of lavar and he chose to play overseas australia instead of going to the college game but for the uninitiated ear. What is lamelo offered to whichever team does end up selecting him tonight. I think he's the best prospect in the draft. Honestly i think if he played at duke kentucky enter any big name college program and he didn't have some of the questions about kind of the circus that has surrounded him at times in his life. I think he would be the runaway number. One pick in terms of his game. I mean he's a big point guard. Six seven close to six foot. Eight is one of the youngest players in the draft. Who was a late bloomer. So i think people remember him as the young you know twelve year old looking kid bomb and half court shots but he's really grown into his frame as great size has the ball on a string as a ball handler. He's incredibly shifty and smooth and his playmaking is ridiculous. The way he sees the game is really really special.

You know those Wednesday night before Thanksgiving time? Yeah. I mean, we'll see how that goes, dude. They're already talking about moving that NC to a tournament to one city, which seems like the only reasonable probably a good idea. But man college football last week did you see I mean, cultural was decimated last, you know, and already I'm here. I'm looking at like the Miami Hurricanes just had three games rescheduled and And there, you know, Did you see the shape of your question is no, I'm not. No, no, that's kind of why I'm asking because I'm not either, So no, I'm not like over the moon jacked for MBA because I'm not totally confident. It's going to get off the ground when they think it's going to. Did you see the the what they turned Dodger Stadium like the whole area, the parking lot into a huge test site, and then the amount of cars going in to get 10 unbelievable, like and they say, it's working. Really, really well to like our solution. That's what I heard. Yeah. Yeah, well down your window, get jammed up the nose and cruise on out. Yeah, they say it's just car streaming in there, you know. So in General Polly, given that you probably didn't watch, you know James Wiseman's gym workouts or Anthony Edwards of Georgia. What appeals to you More A 7 Ft. 1 19 year old with body of a Madonnas. Who's you know as they call him a rim runner. Lot of lobs, Polly level lots and dunks. The rim protection. Well, that's there you go, or or a guy that they say is kind of a Dwayne Wade compa, a 65 number two guard. Who will who will dominate the game from the wing and score like crazy but is very young, very green and they say is prone to elapses in lapses in energy spurts. Yeah, I don't want last time. No, see, That's not that I'm not looking for a lapse in in in energy. I'm looking. I think I like the big man. The 71 of Donna's, Because just just having a presence in the paint all that stuff both get used to do like if you can pass a little bit if you can shoot a little bit Grab me some boards, but also just to have, like a presence. Just like some muscle down there because you know the warriors. I mean, do they play the lob game? I mean, would they play the lob game? You know if you have 71 James Wiseman, you would. Okay, but yeah, they don't generally. No, no. I would say it's It's intriguing because we didn't have a damn college basketball season to watch these guys which is brutal. You know this means you're going off some YouTube clips. You're going off. Theories, you know, and the kid played a year ago to a Georgia. So do you think I mean, you want the winger the big falling in love with the big guy? Yeah, I have. But But today and the Chronicle carnal retorno through little curveball and said that while everybody's Lincoln, the Warriors to James Wiseman He says that he's here and multiple sources say the Warriors instead of going to pull a little zigzag and take Anthony Edwards at number two, probably not to be confused with the actor Anthony Edwards from top gun. And course, fast times at Ridgemont High and Real Genius, Real Science which one was that? I can't help you with either one of those, But I do want to make sure we don't forget revenge of the nerds. Maybe his greatest role. Yeah, but they're saying he's got defensive motor issues which you know you don't need And if team on this do you know a defensive presence for them in a big and I know they say big. They're useless now. Is it so funny? We talked about this. We live long enough now. Seven footers don't want him. That's what they say. Now seven footers. Don't we said this the Ostler yesterday? I think the game is such a running game. A win game Now that you know you get a 7 ft. One guy. You're like us guys slowing my game down. Get him off the court Well, but I'd take him Take him. What the kids. The kids body is insane, too. It's it's ridiculous. And he's 19 and And he passes all the character questions, too. So that's important now, although Anthony Anfernee Hardaway, Penny Hardaway helped him move or gave him like, you know what 10,000 bucks or something like that to help move? That's why he was declared ineligible by Memphis and He just said Fine. I'm going to sit out in the college basketball do with no, No, you look at the guy the wrong way. That's it. So anyway, I was gonna go down tomorrow night, buddy. All right, I'll be ready tomorrow. That is, if the words don't make a trade between now and then Because everybody else in the league was making trades. We'll see. What do you mean through the whole hard into the next thing is the freaking greatest of all. It's like you know what this man is like A like a lover's triangle over there. With hardened and Kyrie and now Durant, like they're all vying for because there's no way Kyrie and hardened can co exist for a full season. It's impossible it would be they would they would self destruct. Dude, I'm telling you right now, it would. It's not gonna work. It would be the most M O. The most sensitive team history. They wouldn't even be talking to each other would be all like Harden. You need three planes to get to the game. We used to, say 25, the Red Sox 25 players. 25 cabs do take the fiery superstars 33. Planes. Do you know how like before the games Now they always show like hardened walking in like in the tunnel with his little backpack. It's like a fashion show. Like the big entrance and everything do they'd be fighting about entrance camera time like you went first yesterday. I need to go first. Today. I got my new backpack on. I just got this. I'm telling you, Dude, I kind of wanted to happen just so we can watch the car crash. That would be amazing if we talk about like ESPN would be if you want to talk about saturation coverage. If hardened, goes to the Nets saturate it would be You don't get a lot enough LeBron in your life you begin, you'd be getting broken. That's updates about our baby will be throwing up from it. I also thought about our buddy Michael Rapaport, too, because imagine being a Knicks fan and just watching like the greatest players in the league, just fist fighting each other to get to the Nets. Now, when you're a next guy who's just like we got nothing out of the way just to close it on the rap sheet here, and I know we gotta go. But you know, we've all been exchanging rap sheet. Rap sheet column. Rap sheet Rappaport videos. Yeah, Yeah, He's been very funny lately. Let's just leave it at that, right. Maybe it was extremely funny, but he was out spoken. He's out spoke turns out that somebody in town that one of the school dad's in town got a cameo. Happy birthday wish from him Nice and I got to see it and he was He was just wrap sitting at his desk in his den, and he said He's kind of squinting, You know, he's a little square. Yeah, totally. Yeah, And he's like a happy happy blank and birthday, man, you know, and he just kind of gets off like he tosses off like a little 60 72nd birthday wish but with a few happy, effin birthday, like four times. The guy who's getting the wish is a is a restaurant owner in town, So he's like, Yeah, I'd like to come up, Peter. You're either you play good restaurant. You know what I mean? Hey, and I was like, Look at Rappaport look at rap apartment, but not, you know, maybe that's your Christmas. Present probably is a merry Christmas cameo from right now. Good men don't worry, but yeah, let's go Do let wrap do his thing. Let wrapped to his thing. Although he you're right. His Knicks would be just standing there. Watching the turning of the indignity of watching these guys just fight to get to the Nets got to be driving him nuts. All right..

"I mean, They've been so good for so many years now that we haven't gotten a ton of excitement out of the draft now, Not only do we get the excitement out of the draft is we're excited for this season and for what could happen in the draft, and I gotta tell you with the way things have been moving in with the way the Warriors I think I'm not trained yet, like I don't think my mind as a fan has been trained yet to understand that the Warriors are gonna be in on everybody. It like a blockbuster trade could go down and that's totally expected of the Warriors at this point. Not that they've been making tons of blockbuster trades, but they added D'Angelo Russell last year so that they could get more creative. They add another draft pick. They swap him to Minnesota. They get in Wiggins, and now Wiggins is a part of this team. And we're gonna talk to Anthony Slater of the athletic on the other side, actually about his thoughts on on Wiggins and where they could go in the draft. He's been really, really high on James Wiseman, the kid you played at Memphis last year for a short period of time, he believes he's the easiest to just slot in and play. There's also some sound from James with from James Wiseman. It's funny. I said that I looked up at the TV in the studio and this is Jamie's Winston and I got tied up thinking. James Wiseman, Jamis Winston James Wiseman is so we're talking about the potential draft prospect for the Warriors at number two big center. You can run the floor. It could be a shot blocker he's built for the MBA's A seven footer. This could be the guy for the Warriors. The other thing here is that they've got to draft picks in the second round s O. They're gonna have to get creative. Do they want to go with a two way player Do they want to go with? Maybe they stash somebody in Europe for a year or two years? Will they try to figure out this roster because they just do not have the roster makeup right now. And speaking of not having a space right now, this Chris Paul deal that's gonna go down for Oklahoma City. He's been trading out five times in his career. We're gonna run through a little bit that later to Chris Paul gets traded from Oklahoma City to the Phoenix Suns. Hell of a move for the Sons. By the way, Devin Booker haven't got to play alongside in Deandra. Eight, and that could be that Z. They flew. The sun's out to the bubble. They went eight no in the bubble, and they didn't even make the playoffs. I don't even know why they flew him out there. What's the big deal? Like What? Why did they have to go if they had no opportunity to even get it? I think they had a big had an opportunity to get into the May they Needed some help and did not get the help that they needed. Bottom line is they had Chris Paul could be the veteran presence yet Devin Booker playing off the ball now that's gonna be a nice addition for them, But in doing so, Oklahoma City with all the trades they've made in the last couple of years. Now have I believe the note I saw was they've got like sleep. 15 draft picks or something. 17 draft plates. From now, through 2027. What? You can't even roster all those cats, so they're gonna have to unload somebody. Kelly, you bridge Jr. A potential player. They could dump maybe to the Warriors. With warriors. Trade exception. You've gotta believe they're gonna look toe shed a little bit of salary there. So all options we can look at, but the bottom line is Was looking at the hot stove league stuff with the Giants. And I'm thinking Man. Baseball just does not get going with free agency in which trades that we the NBA does. And with the MBA, it's all gonna happen in a tight little window here because we get the draft tomorrow, then free agency starts on Friday and then training camp starts December 1st. We're gonna be off and running once the graft gets going tomorrow. If we have not heard anything. Really resembling a warrior. Deal. A Zafar Azaz. Timeline between now and the draft. And this is what Anthony Slater written about last week in the athletic and we'll talk to him on the other side. It was Bob Myers did a press conference last week and spoke to the media like assume call, and they were asking him about using the trade exception or if he was in talks. And he said, Really, talks are preliminary around Monday or Sunday. And he says, if you don't have anything in place by Monday or Tuesday, excuse me by Monday or Tuesday before the draft. You're probably not gonna get anything done on draft day, he says. Usually you've got to have some framework people are calling, asking how Much You like your pick, how much you're thinking about your pick what you're planning to do with it. James Wiseman, though yesterday in his media session with his 2020 draft media session, said that the Warriors and Charlotte were the two teams that had given him the most attention. And so seems to reason that they could be the two teams most interested in drafting him, especially if warriors or number two if he's there. You think they're taking anyone between he Edwards and I mean, I really don't want mellow ball. That could be just a total risk and taken. Let Melo ball. Dave just looked it up on the way. It's so I think it was 17 1st rounders for the Oklahoma City Thunder for the next seven years. They have 26 total picks. Now, Dave whispers in my ear. I think some of those air swaps some of those are are straight up first round or some of them are protected. They've just made every trade they could make. And I guess I guess what they've done now is put themselves in a position to say. Hey, Milwaukee..
"james wiseman" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"This year, just super versatile switches everything really good instincts as a rim protector. Also, you know, pretty good Pastor, great hands or the finisher. I just think that people compare him a little to them, and I don't think that that's quite share. But I do think you know, I see where that's coming from in terms of the versatility that he displays him. Honestly, if I were Charlotte at three I would take or Congo over Wiseman. If both guys wrong the board that's how high I am on him. Schmidt. This is a type of modern day big men that we're talking about. Very versatile. You wrote the predraft analysis on him and you, you call them a perfect lob catching shot blocking center. That's Kind of centers of NBA teams want out there right now? Yeah. Yeah, he doesn't have the physical tools of James Wiseman. You know if you put them side by side in a one on a workout, and that's all you saw, you're going to take James wise, but But I agree with you moaning I would take on Yucca as well. I just think his his defense of smarts, his instincts. He was incredibly productive to USC. I mean, if you look at his performing numbers, no over 21 points over 11 rebounds, 1.5 steals 3.5 blocks and he did it with like a 65 true shooting percentage. We haven't really seen that in our database just going through the numbers really at all. You know that combination, so his great verticality around the rim defensively, Like I said, he's really, really smart guarding pick and rolls and You don't need to run anyplace for you know, Like USC, He was playing with two other centers on the floor at the same time, at times, you know, with with Nate Berkus ceviche and Isaiah Mobley, So I think he's a guy who's going to be a day one contributor because of that defense, versatility, and he's not going to step out and shoot threes immediately or it's not gonna be handling the ball like Bam. But in terms of the defense of end of the floor, he's plug and play. All right. So who is interesting? Ah, we don't need that I need to know about make will make me sound smarter when I Talk on radio shows and pretend like I know what I'm talking about. I mean, I will be topping is gonna be a big name. You know, he's not a sleeper. Obviously, I'm sure you've heard his name just from catching little bits on SportsCenter. He's he played a dating, which is all in Ohio. I'm quite aware. So that's when you know we'll give you that one. But I think he's going to be a guy who has a major impact right away. You know, he doesn't give you the Congo's Defense. But offensively, I mean, he's one of the best love lob catchers in the draft runs the floor incredibly hard. You can pick and pop 23 can handle a little bit. He's a really good passer, so I wouldn't shock me if he comes in and and wins Rookie of the year. Now he's older. The This's a classic discussion that we have every year. He's they play off four years 22 people for years. You have a very unique path. I mean, he basically wants a prep school. He didn't have any offers. He grew. He had the red shirt his freshman year academically and then so this is the second year playing basketball, but he's over here, but yeah, he's he's 22 a half, you know, so I don't know is that is that that's does that scare people off at another has been, you know, it's funny, you know, Damian Lillard CJ McConnell. CJ McCollum, both for your players seem to be doing pretty well for a team that had no problem drafting for your players. So and he was a late bloomer too. You know, Like I said, he grew really late. On DH, So I think he's on a little bit of a different trajectory than your typical 22 year old but house, um deficiencies, but just in terms of a guy who I think is going to be on SportsCenter every night and could contend for rookie of the year certainly names, you know. Live thoroughbred racing is back at historic Hawthorne Racecourse, Chicago's hometown track. Paul meet at Hawthorne remains a tradition. Even in these uncertain times, though, there's limited fan attendants at the track. You could still get in at all the action at any club Hawthorne Offtrack betting parlor or with the club authority that I used, watch.
NBA mock draft: Anthony Edwards or LaMelo Ball as top pick?
"Minnesota Timberwolves had these third worst record this season but won the lottery last night and we'll select first overall in the upcoming NDA draft. lamelo ball has been consistently ranked in the top three prospects. This year's draft and is now projected to go number one overall in this warnings latest mock draft. So Shannon showed the wolf take. That's the question. SKIP. They moved heaven and earth to get the annual Russell. They have Kat Karl Anthony towns they have Andrew. Wiggins. Mellow. Foot. Compatible with very creative thing is that shot is on off the dogs like his brother Lonzo. Beating, people out the dribbling what's the unknowns they've only seen him for twelve games. Now, he's relatively nineteen years of age I. Think Turns Nineteen Couple Days Tomorrow Okay, yeah? But if you look at it all the top picks, you look Anthony Edwards, he's a guard top top in the when he was player of the year this year I think he's I think he's a three and then James Wiseman. semple. Put One. Nineteen and ten before he was A. Re declared ineligible Yup. Could Lamelo in the Angelo play together? Bass. The question skill that really that's what it comes down to. It's not about Oh, man, he was good. He can do that Kenny play together because you gave up and you have this guy he on Amax Contract Dry d? Rosana mags contract Anthony towns. contract. So Somebody willing to move is somebody will wars the Melo over that? No more big deal with me. So buddy I I would I would move. But if I if I gotta stay there probably I probably would take. I'm taking him I. Don't know what it is about me and these bonkers.
Moussa Cisse is going to Memphis
"See say five star prospect originally in the class two thousand twenty one, but now I'm class. Two Thousand Twenty announced this afternoon that he is committed to the University of Memphis. Pippen Hardaway's Tigers over offers from Georgetown Georgia. Florida State Lsu and Kentucky for those unfamiliar. I guess you can on some level. Call him a quote local product because he did spend the past year at Lausanne collegiate school, which is seven miles from the Memphis. MEMPHIS campus, but he's not really a local product. He was born in West. Africa moved to New York, in two thousand, fifteen played at Saint Benedict's prep in New Jersey played at Christ King in New York, then relocated a Memphis, the plate laws and this past season led the links to a state title, one Mr Basketball and the state of Tennessee average eighteen point, four points, fifteen point, three rebounds, and a ridiculous nine point two blocks per game, and now we have college basketball season. He says he'll play for the Memphis Tigers. norlander break it down. What do you make a penny? Hardaway lending a five star center in two straight recruiting classes last time. It was James Wiseman this time Mussa. Break it down Oh. Yeah, here's what I got a question for you I. Mean Here's here's was Gary Perez? Is tweet on Wednesday afternoon breaking all caps course. This was an all caps breaking the way I don't i. You know what expected to go to Memphis. I. Don't know if all caps was warranted there. Can you take me inside the thought process versus not in a? Regular grammar versus going all caps in that moment, please. Young Mussa say follows exactly ten people on twitter. I am one of them, and so I wanted to make sure he he saw how much emphasis I put on his commitment. How do I just know that two four six years from now if and when Lucy say is? Able to earn a consistent NBA paycheck, and perhaps it's even a player of of importance in the NBA. Gary Parrish will never ever ever forget or forget to remind people that there was one point in time and Mussa CCA followed ten people on twitter. And he was one of them. I honestly don't even understand it. Because like he used to follow a lot of people on twitter, I noticed and. One of them was not me, and then suddenly he cut almost everybody, but added me I don't really even know the connection there, but. I want I knew he'd see the tweet. And once I knew each the tweet I wanted to I wanted him to experience in all. Caps tweet obviously as as faithful podcast, listeners will know. Also one Moussa, see say. was tutored by your own son so I think. That might also be an influence. Parish working behind the scenes to get it done for Memphis. You've gotta admire actually ironically enough this happening in a week where parish is not on his local radio show. The conspiracy only strengthens. Okay, so here's what here's my question for you. you say the six eleven likely one and done talent averaged. Eighteen point four points, fifteen point, three rebounds and nine point two blocks last season pick memphis over Georgetown. Tom Kriens Georgia bulldogs Kentucky and Lsu. My question is. Who the hell is this guy planning? Nine point two blocks a game what? I have not I have. It's private school basketball in the state of Tennessee so? Took it over people who look like my oldest son in some cases like the blogging. What after another like I don't know I never been to a laws and basketball game and I've never even actually met. Say although it is true, my son and Mussa. Were classmates in my son to tutor him in in certain classes I. I don't even know if say knows that. My son is his classmate. He might, but I don't know that I've never I've never even had a real conversation about Mussa with my son. Other than so, what kind of young man is he and was like really nice? Really Really Nice guy like you know doesn't walk around like some big time. Basketball player I the only other times. I would talk to myself about Moses. Like Hey, did you see that dunk? That was on instagram last night or something like that? Because like fans are crazy, and at one point, the two schools involved in the Memphis in. RECRUITMENT MOST HEAVILY WE'RE MEMPHIS IN KENTUCKY and I'm like it doesn't matter what happens I. will somebody connected to one of those fan? Bases will blame me for it if HE GOES TO MEMPHIS, Kentucky fans it'd be because I pushed into Memphis somehow through my son, and if he goes to Kentucky Memphis fans, it'd be like see parish eight says all the modern salads like I'm not even getting involved. The only time my son had ever been asked about Mussa as recruitment. That I witnessed was one of my friends recently asked him when they were over at the house, and my son's answer was he always talked about? Georgetown but I don't think he's going to go to Georgetown and that was the extent of it. So he was right. Maybe my son's got a future and being a recruiting analyst, right?
Is Duke Done? A Season of NCAA Basketball Surprises
"Myron. I think the last time we spoke. I was at Cameron Indoor Stadium asking You what you thought about Zion Williamson. That was the last time and now Zion's gone and things haven't been as good for college basketball since he left. Myron Medcalf is a senior college basketball reporter for ESPN. Men's college basketball has been having a pretty weird season. Can you explain to us sort of the state of things and why some of the usually omnipresent contenders your dukes your? Unc's Kentucky aren't even in the top five while it's a meeting in a year like this anybody who tells you that they know exactly what's going to happen in March. They're lying because there was no one no expert. That understands kind of what's happened so far. It's just been a wild year but I think you can look at some of the things that transpired Really at the start of the season. I think the James Wiseman suspension by the answer. Aa For twelve games after being ruled ineligible. You have a Memphis team that I think had a chance to be much better if he sticks around. Lamelo ball who if he follows the traditional track and goes to a UCLA USC that changes the spotlight on those programs as well But instead you have a lot of the blue blood teams that don't have the lottery level talent that they had a year ago. Duke is still a top ten level team but they don't have anyone close To a Zaylon you'd have a team like Gonzaga that had to lottery picks last year. They got some good players. Nothing like that so the the powerhouse teams are just really good team which has closed the gap so now a San Diego State with the Malachi Flint and against double team Malachi for three huge three by malachite lend. That's a really good team. Competing for number one see the Dayton with an ob top suddenly was one of the best teams in America. And I think it's because you just don't have the same concentration of talent we're accustomed to seeing with your Kentucky's in Dukes. Then you'RE K. Use Marin what is it like covering a season like this where there are really clear favorites and no one seems to have any idea. What's going on this year? You just don't really know who to chase like. You don't know who to say okay. That's the team to watch. Because they're really good. It just feels like a pretty fragile college basketball scene which is great for the tournament for everything. We didn't have in college basketball this year in terms of no established kind of powerhouse team. I think we're going to see the benefits of it. Come into double A. Tournament. Time when we could have one of the craziest craziest. March madness is we've ever had so. Let's talk about Duke. Quit even when dukes not great? We're still going to talk about Dick. Because it's really interesting. Myron how much struggled on Saturday they lost to Virginia Virginia wins. That look the three point line. Just couldn't connect before that game. They were ranked seventh. But I imagine they could go down even further now right. Yeah I mean this is a team that I think will will fall in the rankings. Duke has run into some teams who put on their Superman capes in the last couple of games. And that's change things you have. Nc State which made sixty one percent of its threes and that loss A week ago wake forest mixed fifty four percent of its threes. These things those teams had done before they phase Duke and Virginia really as just a team on the rise So I think duke got caught in kind of a weird gauntlet there but trae Jones has been sort of their closer whereas a year ago you could go to RJ bear. You could go to Cam Reddish you could go on. And now they're a bit more one dimensional They're much closer to what you see. Maybe in a typical season where they're right there with Louisville and Florida state and Virginia and the other teams at the top of the ACC. But they don't have a guy who's GonNa carry them to the top of the League and just help them separate. That's just not enough talent in college basketball for really any team to do that. But especially in the league like the Agency. So you're in Kansas right now in Kansas. The number one team. You were there to watch them. Play Kansas State and it was a right because these two teams Fighting literally fighting back in January Shit and now the benches inc just unnecessary. That's not good. This is Paul. This is bad this is but on Saturday night myron. They shook hands before the tip off in. Kansas came away with the victory. What did you make of the number team in their performance? Well I I'm just glad nobody fought again because that that would have been bad Glad to have that moment before the game I will say. I've never been to a regular basketball game outside of the NCAA tournament that had as much security as that game. Had I mean they were everywhere about? I'm glad there was an incident. I I think Kansas is sort of the perfect team in a year like this. Do they have a lottery pick? No but they've got this really balanced group of guys who are pretty good offensively. They've been pretty efficient team and they got two guys who win they're together. They're hard to stop. It's Dotson In Gaza Buki who when they're on the floor together. Kansas made about sixty percent of his shots inside the art. Their opponents have made about forty one percent of their shots inside the three point line. That's the story right there when those two guys are together. Kansas is certainly the best team in America. But you also look at them and go. Are they one bad night from Abu? Koa from struggling. He was hurt part of the game on Saturday against the bad Kansas state team boss feeds it in bounced past as a group. Six to shoot you back down spits travels this is the shot ultimately but he rolled his ankle. Oh this is good has approved. He is clutching his right foot so Kansas is good. But like a lot of teams there. One bad moment badge stretch away from being right there with everybody else. Well now. It seems like Kansas is going to run away with the big twelve after Baylor who was ranked number two going into the weekend got upset by. Tcu How bad was this for Baylor? It's always interesting right. Like Baylor won every game but one for like two months straight and now all of a sudden last week I think a lot of people are panicking and that happens to a team. Like Baylor which doesn't have the brand recognition of Duke or Kentucky or a Kansas. So in hard times. I think we may be overemphasized Some of their struggles. I think you obviously don't want to continue losing and losing to a team like Tcu is not good For them but this is a team that again played a tissue team that did things that they haven't done in the past made forty five percent of the threes on Saturday against Baylor. They made thirty three percent of their shots from three point. Line before that so that can be more of an anomaly. I think Baylor overall though is one of the best defensive teams in America made the best defensive team not named Kansas. So that's GONNA keep them in every game that they play well one team. That's right up there with Kansas and Baylor is Gonzaga perennial contenders They did lose to. Byu about a week ago but they're still considered favorites to win the WCTC. How good is this Gonzaga team? I think they're really really good me now like I think they're amazing. I just think this is a year where because everyone has been sort of even you get one loss and all of a sudden. Gonzaga gets the whole. You haven't played anybody. And why are you losing you know in the West Coast Conference and I think that's unfair? Byu was a really good team like Byu's go into selection Sunday with maybe a five or six seed. Maybe even better so. There's nothing wrong with losing a road game in that environment to a good team. They have the number one offense in America a flea Petra. Sav is one of the best young players Indian tire country. We would know what mark few the head coach can do. And they've got two losses all year. I think that is one of the best teams in America and I think will prove it wants double a. Tournament starts so most of the rankings have some combination of Kansas Baylor in Gonzaga in the top. Three we'll see how this weekend changes that but after that myron gets pretty interesting. I'm you've got Dayton San Diego state. Did you see that coming up before the season began out like I wish I could lie and say I did? I wish I could be that dude. It was like yeah. I called San Diego State back in October in Dayton. But I didn't I mean like ob top and a Dayton is suddenly this lottery pig. And I don't think anybody saw that Common Dayton on Friday against Davidson Mia. Think about this number. They may ninety six percent of their shots inside the three point. Line Ninety six percent like I don't care if you're playing a high school junior Varsity Team. That's really difficult to do in Dayton. Did that and not only did they do it. They've been doing it Throughout the season just really inefficient offensive team in San Diego State. A team that lost its first game about a week and a half ago. The they've been role as well in their line of people who will say San Diego State doesn't play the competition that the other top teams have faced in college basketball. That's not true. They beat the. Byu Team that just beacons Aga- they beat Creighton. Which I think is the surprise of college basketball naked win at all by thirty one points and they beat Iowa another solid team another Aa tournament team by ten points so the best teams that were thrown at San Diego State. They won those games now. They did lose the UNLV Week ago but beyond that there have been a really really good team and I think in a year like this again. You're not going to run into a team with two lottery. Picks it feels like they can make Iran as well both San Diego state ending
Speculations increases that Cole Anthony might not play again in college
"So there's growing speculation that Kohl Anthony will not play at North Carolina again. Norrland not sure if you saw it. But here's what our friend and former colleague Sabatini wrote for the athletic earlier this week about Injured lottery picks is co Anthony. lamelo ball in Hampton after spending time in Las Vegas around dozens of NBA people sambo quote the feeling among NBA evaluators. Waiters is that injured guards. Coal Anthony Lamelo ball and RJ. Hampton aren't going to play the rest of the season. It's worth stressing that no final decisions have been made by those players. I and thus it's possible. They will still play scouts and executive. Don't know that Anthony won't suit up again for North Carolina or that Bala Hampton won't play again in the NBA. I'll rather it's. They're working expectation that they're not going to get to see them again. Given their contextual situations the using logic because North Carolina's team around Anthony has struggled with no uh-huh floor spacing and a cluttered lane around him every time he drives into the pain. NBA executives believe that does around. Anthony will stress to him that it's not worth returning that will be especially true if North Carolina loses a lot of games in his absence against a week schedule and this takes itself out of the tournament. Picture norlander do you. I think we've seen coal anthony for the final time in North Carolina uniform. I'll be direct and I'll say no but I had this thought think I expressed only previous podcast if UNC goes on to have significant issues in the ACC and can't even keep its head above water. Call Anthony Projects even with this injury. I won't say universally but a top five pick is completely mm within reality if he does not play again and it would not stunned me. It'd be it'd be a major development element in that you would have in the same season for what I have to believe. Is the first time ever in college. Basketball Ascot Ball to top five level picks in college for eligibility injury. Whatever opting to bail on their college careers to not return and pursue a pro opportunity trinity? which is the which is the? It's like the college bowl. College players sitting out the Bulls taken to to the sixth degree. Basically where it's one thing where if you've been a junior senior in college football you're playing some forgettable bowl on December twenty ninth ninth New Year's Eve or whatever and you're just like I'm Gonna I'm GonNa pack it in here. I'M NOT GONNA chance injury if I think I'm going to be first second or third round pick. It's completely understandable. Aw I would endorse any player that wants to do that. Frankly it's a whole nother level if you are a coal Anthony Type James Wiseman type and you you decide. I'm just GONNA shut it down altogether and simply not returned to competition and GonNa take the stock where I have it right now and hope that my April and May workouts are going to Either steady me or boost me to to a certain spot in the draft so I won't be stunned if it happens. I'm going to say that will not happen. Only because because he's a truly like fierce competitor. I think that he will be better. He'll we'll be back in time to still want to give it a go out that this is GonNa sit well with him having his career kind of sputter out the way that it has. So Oh he's he's nine games deep into a career. I think he'll be back. He'll be playing for Carolina this season and long-term projection is this and we can do a offer. Type flashback if we need to but I'll say that he'll return and one of the most compelling storylines in college basketball when he does return will be if he can be healthy enough and good enough to get an UNC into the tournament. I would lean that way as well. I do think there's two things that would make him less likely to to return or unlikely to return one would be if you just not healthy enough. And if he's not healthy enough. You shouldn't return. That's like you know like this. and He is worth millions of dollars and playing playing at anything. Less than one hundred percent would be foolish. So if he's not healthy enough to return then he won't return shouldn't return anybody trying to criticize him for that would be It'd be misguided criticism the other thing that I think could play a role as you mentioned ballgames for football players. Will you know they don't these football players. They don't sit the College Football playoff. They sit out the cotton bowl and they sit out the Birmingham Bowl and they sit out the liberty bowl but they don't sit out the the games that actually mean something something and so if you want to you know. Make perhaps apples to oranges comparison but still something similar still fruit to fruit I. If coin returns in North Carolina has just lost so much before. He's able to come back that he would be coming back not to try to get North Carolina to the tournament the try to get them to the nit like we're just crystal clear you're not. You're not taking this team to the tournament. At that point. You could go if I'm not playing playing for any. I'm not playing for a trip to the tournament. What am I playing for? Like if you're in Alabama running back and you're playing for a trip to the account coll- to the national championship game. That's worth playing for even if you're a top ten pick if you're just gonNa go to the fiesta. A A different bowl. Anything outside of the College Football playoff. Perhaps that's not worth playing for. I think coli Anthony's approach could be similar if if I can come if if this team is holds it together well enough that I can come back and we can beat Duke twice beat Louisville and go to the tournament. That's worth playing for but but coming back to just play out a schedule that's leading the nowhere because the image to the resume was so significant in my absence that we can't get to the tournament then. I think you could reasonably argue. It's time it's time to just clock out. That's why I think his situation is vastly different than James Wiseman situation. I mean if coal as that he comes back to take North Carolina to the IT. He's just a great talent who played at North Carolina. Like who cares but why has been in theory was set to rejoin the top ten team. And you know if you take memphis to a final four. You're a legend forever in Memphis emphasis. You know they don't have the history of North Carolina or Duke or Kentucky. You any Memphis Fan can can tell you that the starters from all three three final four teams. There's never been a national champion. So you got a chance to go do that. And what is a wide open year to walk away from that I still think is just just just odd and I don't think that he would be walking away from that. So it's why I guess I bought them on it this way. I would understand if North Carolina goes three and five in its next eight games and Co Anthony's cleared to return and he says but you know the numbers are so bad at this point. We're not GONNA be able to get to the incidentally tournament. I'm just going to focus on my pro career. I would understand that a lot a lot a lot more easily than then I can understand James Wiseman walking away when he walked away I would to. UNC seven and five and next four games are at home. The road is after that or pit in Virginia tech I understand. UNC's serious down swell here but I do think that it will be instantly good enough spot. Where provided there there are no further setbacks and you know it's an it's an MC L. It's it's not insignificant by any means? Let's he's gotta get fully healthy here. They're not gonNA put them back on the floor until he is one hundred percent you know. Make the parallel almost to design Williamson. Obviously obviously Except signed Williamson is now being handsomely. Paid and company is not yet I do think the Carolina I'm Projecting Carolina will be still within reach of the tournament by the time he was able to come back. And so that's what will make Make that happen. But we'll wait and see obviously get investments on that story will continue to update up to you talk about it and see where we go from there.
James Wiseman Says He Will Leave Memphis and Enter the N.B.A. Draft
"James Wise leaving Memphis. He never came back after his suspension after that forgave came back court ordered to play or the initial possible eligibility suspension Meena comes. I WanNa ask you big picture. What is the moral of the stores I? Sometimes it feels like we're piling on the way but they make it so easy right because the moral of this story is they might have won that battle but what they really lost the war. I don't know what this is going to mean for. James Wiseman I think he could have benefited from marketing himself. A bit by being out there in March but now he gets to protect his body Eddie and perhaps make some money. I do know that this is a huge l. for the NCWA because in March we're not going to see him we're not going to say RJ Hampton. We're not gonNA see Lamelo Ball. This is undeniably undeniably at Trent Sarahspain. Yeah the moral of the story is not just that the NC Double A.'s. Rules make it so that players decide it's not worth sticking around paying eleven thousand five hundred dollars to play if you've already achieved the eligibility age that you need but that brings me to the major problem which is that that exists in the first place it's the NBA rule that required him. Go Play College basketball. When he wasn't interested in the first place like any other eighteen year old who is qualified? He should have been allowed to go do the job he can do for the money he can earn and that rules eventually GonNa go by the wayside because the top three of the top five people that are predicted to go top. Five in the draft won't be playing college basketball this year and as they continue to witness that the NBA is going to realize is that they need to provide other opportunities
"james wiseman" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"To that yes we are also very important reason it's not just for looks in other words there's there's a reason they're all here will do that in a minute but fifty make Christmas tree was talking about the James Wiseman story and there's so many layers to this that just make no sense whatsoever for those that may not a forgotten James wise was a freshman and went to Memphis and he was suspended by the NC double a they appeal that it went back to a payment that was given to his parents a buy and penny Hardaway when he was not associated with or as mother rather not associate with the school in any way shape or form to move him to relocating from Nashville to Memphis and then it turns out when he became the head coach the team as a booster of the school because you have a million dollar donation all that time ago so by proactively rules is going to pay that money back can be suspended well these bees been taught to the first seven games of suspension I think it was seven games into what will end up being a twelve game suspension because remember when he'd for originally had this indictment come down or had decided decision come down to the suspension come down here in Memphis fought this and he went out there was playing games while he was suspended by the NC double a while they were trying to fight that so what would have been a ten game suspension had two extra games tacked on to a big right played into this so all of this is straight talk brought to by straight talk wireless so basically James Wiseman is not going to play that usually get ready for the NBA draft where it worse is gonna be the third overall pick looks like yeah he's going to he's going to start to get ready and I'm sure him and his team this is a decision so he came to this decision together seven games into a twelve game suspension by all accounts this is a decision that surprised the staff at Memphis right but he comes to this now will likely they said probably go no lower than third based on where we have now is a seven is a seven foot one dynamic athlete we just saw a couple of those on display in the box Lakers game last night as far as monster athletes you can never be made a major effect on your damn so he's in demand and by the way right now the third over because the gold state warriors just throw that out my god what what's interesting with this is he seven games into a twelve game suspension so it's been basically a month all and by the way Memphis in the seven games of seven oh yeah but it's been about a month during that time and now he made the decision like he could be back January twelfth that that would be his return date the first came to come back again South Florida but he decided and something you mentioned Mike the or driver ever mention it but the school was surprised by this yes we talk a lot of times about decisions for the young players of who they they talk to about these decisions and a lot of times it's a coach and penny Hardaway to be a pretty good guy to talk to I would experience eighties had but Weisman did this without the school you know talking to the school he's allowed to head to the let's also be clear he may have talked to the school he may have gotten advice from penny in them but in the process of making this decision he made this at a time or a judge or the schools not right I don't want to say ready do because the school said that they were surprised they were surprised by the timing of this decision who knows if they I'm sure there have been some conversation regardless we don't know if there'd been a conversation between the school or not and by the way he's an eighteen year old kid you know he might have really wanted to play college that somebody finally said to him why risk yourself with the idea of you at it right now at the wheel your worst case scenarios being a third overall pick in make millions of dollars so what are you doing this for so to me there's two sides to the store first of all this is this is because of the one and done rule me James Wiseman what about he would've been drafted and and again that's an NBA rules that's not so you can't blame the NCAA for this also so that's that's part of it right but I do find fault with the NC double a in the stipulations that they put on him when they suspended him because again they needed that eleven thousand five hundred dollars to basically survive so it's clear that he doesn't have that kind of money so the NC double as logic is and we talked about it when the suspension was run down okay you wanna complain for us you know that money you didn't have before you're gonna need to find a way to get it before you can play it's just so dumb his only option is now to do this because it's always put ridiculous I mean he was going to come back and play yeah I was going to get our money back yeah yeah boy did the stipulation with that payment was it had to be pain back during the course of his eligibility so it was not a requirement for that paid right before he could come back and play I get it I understand that but putting a financial stipulation on a kid who has no money to begin with it's ridiculous your right it's ridiculous but he was going to come back and play January twelfth if you wanted to stay and continue playing for Memphis and now and now chose chose not to I think the biggest two words that has changed over time and I don't know when I'm sure someone smarter than we could figure out when they do these two words started being used business decision well because college was man you got a scholarship you want played sports in it was always big business when I was there even before me was business certainly by the time you know you when your brother play there it's been big big business but business decisions by players now players you got your scholarship you're one plate and then you either went on to the pro level that's border you went out and you got a job somewhere there was rarely a business decision involved now and I'm not saying it's wrong but everything is changed everybody's got a little smarter and players found they have a little more control when they want to make a business decision they do but again this does all come back to the one in general right now because these guys should be in the NBA doing this I was talking to Sean Farnham a lot one of our great college basketball analyst great take and had a great take it we're talking off air and it's true the NC double way is fine without these one and done players like their model is built on the backs of a tournament it's going to make money because people like chaos sample like that tournament said only for everybody but the players know exactly I mean the people that care about these guys being around for the product and on this the real ones that are affected are the schools like Duke is going to be okay but Duke was better because I on how big he was last year with all that there's a direct benefit and there's a benefit to an extent from the player side but the do that are affected by these rules are also going to be okay like this is coming from the NBA's are in a way that feels on necessary the whole thing is on a certain it's going to go away by the way I wanted done is you know a couple years and be instantly but for some sort things out or they might be well and all that straight talk brought you by straight talk wireless everything.

"Well that's exactly what the what the NC double a fights again so these guys that just go to college to become NBA players in the use it abuse the system it's like will soon we won't have to worry about that because you know what James Weisman's gonna do the next Jay Mohr James Wiseman he gets to go straight to the NBA and I'm in favor of that rule change it can be a terrible decision for guys but it can also be the right one and you hope that everyone has the right people around them that are telling them the right things and not trying to do it for their own benefit but it's pretty apparent what James Wiseman that he's making the right decision he's going to be the number one overall pick in the draft I don't see anything changing between now and then and after dealing with the garbage with the NC double a I don't blame them for saying and you know what I'm out of here eleven thousand five hundred dollar charity Phoebe I mean that's the insane thing I saw patch across homes to do about this when it happened how are you going to make a student athlete that doesn't get paid pay a fee and give it to each and they say we'll give it to a charity because they can't you know you can't make the checks payable to the NC double a it's like that's nonsense all you say is that these are amateur athletes and you tell them they have to pay eleven thousand five hundred dollars this is dumb and I hope it works out for James wise man I hope it works out for every James Wiseman moving forward that's going to say I'm not dealing.

James Wiseman's suspension upheld by NCAA
"Well the answer EE has denied the appeal of James Wiseman suspension remember the Memphis star expected to be the first pick overall in the NBA draft that was paid eleven thousand is mother accepted I should say eleven thousand five hundred dollars from penny Hardaway back in two thousand seventeen when penny Hardaway was not yet the coach but now he is the coach Memphis it appealed the ruling of a suspension but it was upheld by the division one committee on student athlete reinstatement so to nobody's surprise James wise men will still continue to be suspended

"Four two two seven and then what what what needs to be done about situations like chase young and and James Wiseman where the consensus seems to be who cares why is this the thing to me just allow it and regulated I generally that cleans up the the CDS behavior when things are going to happen anyway you're not getting rid of it it's rampant and you just become numb to it because you got wire taps and coaches who is in a different era might be gone and are still in their jobs because the the the general populace doesn't give a damn let's go to Ben in fort worth Texas Ben your up next here on CBS sports radio what's going on but yeah you know if you're gonna pay the kids which is cool you know there were zero extra system the pay the kids but then in turn take away the free tuition that you're giving them and then for some of their social and what they're getting they were getting very well I mean if that's the thing band is it's not really that's not the transactions happening right I I feel like that's just a misconception because we we're we're you're you're putting it through the lens of of a normal person's experience right like if I were going to school and and I got paid for that would've been a big deal it costs a lot of money right but that was the reason I went there the reason I went to to college was to get the education and the experiences that come with the education that was the nature of the the transaction and in these cases when eggs do core Alabama and they're going to these top athletes they're not going to have the kids go to school they're going to get the kids to play for the basketball or the football team so I think it's a little disingenuous to act like the tuition is actually not to say it doesn't have value of course it has value cost money to do it and be nice to get it but it's not the nature of why they're going to the school in the first place on either side our our greet our procedure for this change there are still hundreds of thousand if you're going to that school every year that pay a lot of money to go to those schools and it's not free for them and I'm not changes but are are they generating the revenue that these kids these other kids are are are generating right which is hard but they're still generating revenue from those kids don't train for I mean the kids are playing to go there generating revolutionary around I don't know how there's a sports for me but I'm sure it doesn't I mean it doesn't apparently to at me I think of the one of the problems I have been is that a lot of these schools pass themselves off as these institutions of higher learning when really they're they're big businesses and it's all a racket right like I mean whatever your skin then it fell has worked and she got away from me he can't go for your work two years and the way that they generate money through that it's all a record but I'm just saying like I had to pay for modern and I'm not saying that because the schools benefiting offered her likeness of a shooting at something but I mean make okay something about if they want to get paid to to play a sport and be noticed because the higher the like gets more tension then you know James Madison university so I mean if you want to go to these harder marquee schools in play sports there for the recognition thank you Hey that's cool but now you have to pay something to do that but why would you have to pay something to do that when you're the one generating the Rev that seems backwards to me that doesn't mean that and again that's not even we're talking about with the wise men and with chase young here I mean I think it always goes back to pay the athletes are not like that's a big conversation people like that that's not what's happening here what what's happening here is Jay Sean got alone from somebody that he paid back and penny Hardaway help Wiseman is family move and with the mother I'm sure life expenses they might be I mean in a sense I guess they were getting paid but they weren't in compensated at a regular level that wasn't you know and I I I I think most people most people don't have a problem with that Jim in Columbia South Carolina Jim you're up next year on CBS sports radio what's up Jim how you doing yeah good don't don't come in on the last call you know I I don't think that people realize it the schools are not paying these guys in this situation these got earning this money in a free market based on what their values and like it's an image so it does say that the that they should give up their scholarship because earning money is ridiculous math like say in the kids is working at Pizza Hut I should have to give up his music scholarship because he's making money yeah our school is ridiculous I do think though if if if they are going to earn money online using image and and and because they are the quarterback of X. university then probably the university should get a percentage of the money they bring in simply because they would not be getting that life was like miss an image money if they were not part of the university so I I think there that needs to happen there needs to be some kind of system set up but all your comment originals calling your comment earlier than allergy about the legalization of marijuana and and how it's regulated now and and perhaps that's what should happen here you know I've got some friends that I have talked to that are in the business and you know one of the things that they said is that the regulation and the licensing and all of the fees and and things that they have to pay that they're not making the money there that you could make in that business so what's happening now is you're having guys do it illegally and then there might get more money because you know the guys are going to the White way and now I'm worried that if we go to regulation of this entire regulation of this we're going to see the return of the bag and you know and they're going to be even more prominent in the universities and I have been in the past because you know if if if we regulate what you're able to make a likeness in and is there going to get that money from somewhere is usually going to be the bagman coming back yeah I don't know if there's a perfect solution and I I appreciate your perspective again that's even separate from like there's an image like this image in image is what it is I'm talking about the stuff that already going on which is you know kids getting hit off with loans or or assistance with stuff and that that being from a coach or an agent or shoe company and that's happening so to me in general I I'm a believer in regulating and and allowing those things that you can't prevent I don't know the ins and outs of the the legal marijuana business but from the macro perspective I'm sure on the micro level in the weeds I guess put intended there is there are some issues but from the macro level it seems like it's worked well for the states that have done it same with sports gambling I mean somebody as somebody who resides in New Jersey I I can tell you that the the sports gambling seems to be working really well and that was something that was done you know under the V. boards before and now is above board eight five five two one two four two two seven will keep this conversation going after a sports flash from Peter
