"Deal and what this all comes down to Logan for me is trust. Trust is a very interesting thing. It takes a lot to get it. And it doesn't take a whole lot to fucking lose it. And, you know, if I were someone in that organization, I don't know that I would trust that Kyrie would have our best interest at heart. Even if that's what he said, because I have a track record. I have examples of things being said by him. In Boston, and them not necessarily coming to fruition. So I think at this point, I would say that Kyrie is going to probably do what Kyrie wants to do. Whatever that means. You know, in whatever situation he's going to do what's best for him. I'm not knocking it. I'm just saying that's what I would have to approach the situation looking at it like. And it would be a really hard thing for me because I need people that are invested. I need to trust that you're going to be here. I need to trust that you're going to have the same level of sacrifice built into this endeavor that everyone else does. And I don't believe that. It's interesting, right? Because do you give him, there's a full max extension that he can get. He also has a player option, right? I don't envy anybody in that front office, bro no. I guess I'll just go from there because it's so complicated because you see his track record this season. When it's funny, James Harden would still be on the team if Kyrie does what he needs to do, right? Yeah. We probably be having a whole different discussion right now. They probably wouldn't be an 8th seed right now. No, they wouldn't mean anything. I mean, I know how crazy this sounds. I'm going to take anything away from Boston. But if you had given me James Harden Kyrie and Kevin Durant, we're having another conversation. Not only at full strength, but they're all locked in. Starting with a question, they're going to they're going to the finals. And so it's just interesting when you kind of hear Kyrie talk of the wee wee wee of it all when he hasn't been there. If he just hasn't, that's unequivocally he hasn't been there. And that's got to be frustrating for people in that in there. And I'm just speaking, I don't know. Listen, I've been on this position all year. I won't change now. I believe him to be a brilliant basketball player. He can do things with a basketball. I sat in practices watching this man in my sweater and khakis. Like, what the hell is that? I've never seen anyone do that. Like this is incredible. So I'd be there early in practice, just so I could watch more of it, right? This is crazy. This is bananas. Bra went to both times I got to see Kyrie this season. I saw him twice, got there three hours early because I could see him the man warm up. Yeah, so I could see him warm up. I used to watch him and Phil handy every morning warm up 'cause I wanted to see. I gotta see what this is, right? Shout out Phil handy, Oakland legend. Absolutely. I can also attest to the human being he is in terms of what he was for my kids, who he is as a philanthropist, like how he attacks social justice issues and things that really mean something to him with an open heart and open arms and he's trying to make changes. I can do all of that and still say that I believe the decision that he made this year as it pertained to putting his team and his teammates in the best position to win a championship was a selfish decision and that will always be something that I have to flash back to and revert to when it's time to make a decision in regards to this team. That's why it's hard for him to say to take on this leadership role and to take on his that's why his comments are always run flat to me because you could have been there. There could have been a real partnership there and I agree with you with all the social justice thing I agree with you with all that stuff off the court. I agree with you. But at the same token, all your words ring hollow when you're like, yo, me and Kev got to figure it out. Man. No, and you are a brilliant basketball player. We saw that in game one. Me and you are texting game one like dude. This dude is different. And I think that makes it all the more frustrating. There's more that we need to talk about just for the nets, man. I want to get it, I want to get your perspective because over the weekend, there was some reports that came out talking about Ben Simmons and talking about Simmons, potentially coming back for game four. And, you know, there was a report that I think on the eve, I think it was, I don't know what it was. A couple days ago, or it was right before this game, that he's not going to play. Right? And that excited a lot of reaction. Reggie Miller is out here going ham, telling them hashtag man up. Chuck. For Reggie Miller, who is a very nice guy. Reggie Miller, who is a steward of the game, right? Loves everyone. I see Reggie Miller in traffic. He is one of the nicest humans ever, right? It takes a lot to get him pissed. And he's like, yo, man up. To Ben Simmons. Charles Barkley. It's mad. Stephen a Smith when he got the news was incensed. First of all, just quick side note. Saw Stephen a on countdown..
"When the olympics start will be the most talented team in tokyo. Hands down no question. Most talented team in tokyo with the roster that they have but this is like a five alarm fire right now howard. This loss to nigeria. I don't care if they win the rest of these pre olympic games which will take place through next sunday. This has to make you nervous if you're a fan of the team because not only is it this. The loss to nigeria. But you go back two years ago at the world championships where you had a us team. That was good. Didn't have probably better team now than they were back in two thousand nineteen but all nba players. They finished seventh. They've been seventh at the world championships. You have the seventh-place finish the loss of nigeria. How concerned are you howard beck about. Usa basketball. It's just an exhibition game. Chris oh no no. It's not just an exhibition game. Stop this team was thrown together over the last however many weeks they had what like three practices. I think i'll ever. Us team is thrown together. What are you talking about. There's no team. There's no no mid season practices for usa basketball. No but the nigerian team has been practicing. What i'm saying is some of the play in the nba though wants win the nba nba. A few of them play in the nba but that team has had time together more so than the team. Sorry brown coaching. that team. That i missed was that a facsimile of mike brown on the bench all season long. What what are we talking about. The warriors have been out for like two months kris k. Okay so two months. that's what matters. That's that's the number three three practices. Also they're still missing. I believe at least three guys because they're playing in the finals right now. Booker middleton chris paul get it. Yes not chris. Ball's not playing a holiday with the the what holland is your holiday. Those those guys will matter especially given that middleton and holiday are to the better perimeter defenders that that team. Usa has and if you look at the rest of team usa's roster. I don't see a ton of great defenders. There there are a few. I think those three guys by the way are going to be exhausted by the time they get to. They may well be. They may will be so. We're going to judge them. Judging when their whole judge when the games matter to strange to me like we don't judge nba teams based on the preseason but we judge team usa based on these exhibition games. That they do going into international competition. I feel like it's thirty. One point favorites. Why why is there betting line on a freaking exhibition better training but a little league baseball. Now country degenerates damn right. I didn't mean chris i'm with. Let's go monday. Nigeria money line. I just. I can't get too excited about this. If they lose the rest of the exhibitions does that mean something. Yeah that might be alarming if they're if they're still struggling to find some cohesion. That could be alarming. But i mean the talent is obviously their talent alone doesn't win on the international stage in style of game is different team ball matters. Shooting matters like yeah. There's a bunch of budget stuff that comes into play. But i i find the panic over this loss or at least the outcry to be a little bit much. So you don't take into account the seventh-place finish in two thousand nineteen. I mean that to me. It's the it's not just as game. The totality of it right. Like and i don't know howard like so in the early two thousands the world kind of caught up to the us ninety to ninety six thousand us. Gold maps then comes the two thousand two world championships in indianapolis and that's seven. The place finish was one of the worst worst outcomes in at least recent usa history. They got it together after that. They hired jerry colangelo. They bringing mike chef ski. They get their act together. Two thousand six two thousand eight then. They run off. Three consecutive years are three consecutive cycles of gold. Medals is argon. Made that like the world's caught up again that somewhere along the way and the last four or five years. The rest of the world has once again caught up usa basketball. I'm trying to understand this. I mean that's close games in those olympics cycles. No question about it. But i can't imagine the oh eight. Twelve or sixteen team losing nigeria. I can't exhibition or otherwise. I can't see it happening. No team and the and the one that followed it were built around like lebron koby. Carmelo enjoying wait. I mean that that groups at another level like as good as this group is that we're seeing right now as talented as they are after k. D. tatum's really good damian. Lillard is great. I mean come arbit- tatum. Bill lillard auto bio levin. Draymond dream ends up there in years but one has won some things. Jeremy grant jeremy grant zach living out of like. These are guys who have done anything in the nba yet. But they're all stars most they're they're also but are they to level of lebron kobe now but do you think is that what you're saying then is that what you're saying to be at the level you need to have like i'm saying the crop to win. I'm saying that if we're going to start comparing the twenty twenty one team to the twenty eight a two thousand eight two thousand twelve teams there is. There is not an equivalent right now. Lebron kobe laurent cobaine weight. And plus what we what. We called olympic. Mellow like carmelo. Didn't have the success in the nba. That some of his teammates did but carmelo in terms of talent level and certainly has resume like that group was at a whole other level. That group is a different level than jason. Tatum bam outta bios. Zach levine. Okay so not saying that you necessarily should have to have that level of time firepower to win an exhibition game against nigeria. Or anybody else. But i am saying comparing usa to itself different iterations of team usa. This one is not that one. This is not as dominant group as the ones we saw in eight and two thousand twelve. It just isn't what do you do like. What's the solution here. Like i mean i jerry. Colangelo deserves an enormous amount of credit for rebuilding that program when it was at. Its nadir mitra chefs. He comes in enormous amount of credit for what they did. But as we sit here in twenty twenty one like it's almost to me howard like the usa basketball rebuilding. The program became cool. Like lebron wanted to do it. Chris paul like dwayne wade. These guys wanted to do it and then they did it. And i think playing for usa basketball didn't become quite as cool as it was fifteen years ago. Like is that what has to happen like does not need to have like a fifth place finish in tokyo for all of a sudden the next generation of a-list stars wherever that may be in two thousand twenty four to come back into the mix and is that the only way this team can win. I mean i think we need to pay attention to the overall context like obviously one. These olympics were supposed to happen a year ago. They're delayed a year because of covid got durant out of it though like that right. It's questionable whether these the olympic should be happening at all still but along the way because of these back to back brutal seasons and everything else like team. Usa doesn't have james harden right now. Doesn't have anthony davis because of the injury doesn't have steph curry doesn't have kyrie irving doesn't have lebron kawai again. If your argument is that the second or third tier it sounds like sounds like insulting. Somehow but if you're saying that the next wave believe after those guys should still be good enough to dominate on the world stage. Maybe but if the point is that the team as best are they still. Are they still able to win. Gold fairly easily. Your probably but a bunch of them aren't on this team right now because of injuries and just the stress of the last year or two so this this is not necessarily representative of the best of the best right now. It just isn't and yes. They should still be good enough to win. Yes the world has caught up to some extent. No the the group that at nigeria's put it put out there last week. Does not leap off the page improbably. Us should've still want it. But again i exhibition game after like three practices. Let's see what happens with the rest of this. This schedule out brought mellow back. I mean he's not what he was four years ago. Eight years ago twelve years ago but the guy knows how to play international basketball. He might have sat. maybe. I guess. I didn't really. I assume that he just want to keep. He didn't kind of like four formerly re retire from the olympics. But it'd be pretty much says like i'm done like lebron kinda did to get talked into it. I feel like. I don't know if i was if i was the usa team would try really hard to get carmelo blake because his style. Whatever it is to the nba is perfect for the national basketball. He's a really good or national basketball player. On this subject damian lillard. He spoke for the first time. Since the hiring of chauncey billips. Only listen to what little had to say about his future in portland. I'm prepared to go in and do my job every year. Like hopefully we make strides over direction and could become a better team a new coach notice. That's where i am. What soured it sounds like. Lillard is at least nominally on board with going back to the blazers. But if i'm a team out there with assets. I don't listen to that response and say well it's over damian. Lillard is back on the same page with the portland trailblazers. If i'm a team with assets i hold onto those assets because it feels to me like the blazers might be one like sixteen to start from blowing that whole thing up with louis mccollum on the way out the door so get the sense now. That seems more likely than not that damian lillard at blazers training camp. He's in ablaze uniform. He starts the season with the portland trailblazers. But if it doesn't work with chauncey billips early and you get close that trade deadline. It wouldn't surprise me at all to see portland decide. Look we've got a. We've got to do something here and opened the door for damian lillard trade. What do you think. I think that nothing has changed. I think that his remarks last week because he sounded a little bit lukewarm. Or just you know you hear one of two things. Well you want to hear one thing if you're a portland trail blazers fan or if you're just looking for any indication that lillard is all in your you want to hear him say listen. I know things are rough right now. But i'm all in you know this is. This is where. I want to be you to repeat all the usual talking points that you hear from players in his position and that we've heard from bradley beal that we used to hear from james harden houston. Which is a win in phil in city fill in the blank with the city. I want to win here. I don't wanna go somewhere else. You know we're going to get this right blah blah. He didn't go down the usual list. And so i think it left open. Some interpretation but getting has changed like the disappointment was clear when the season ended. Some of the things have happened since including obviously the the the train wreck away they went about the the coaching search and lillard. Being caught in the crossfire. There at feeling heat from fans about chauncey billips being selected and so. I don't think we should expect he's going to be rah. Rah right now The trailblazers have a lot of work to do. But we also have not even hit the summer yet. Like there's the draft hasn't happened yet. Free agency hasn't happened yet. There's there's a lot of work to be done. And i think if you're damian lillard which you're probably doing is internally saying here's what i need to see happen externally saying you know what let's let's wait and see i mean you see. He can't he can't say publicly the same things that he's telling say neal o'shea right about what the the state of the roster i i would think that there are some very impassioned debates or discussions being held behind closed doors about what they need to get this thing right and if they can't get it right the he might shift is his stance about staying there long term. But that hasn't happened yet that we know of. What do you think the most interesting potential conversation is amongst players over these next four weeks like i'm kind of curious what jason tatum bradley beal talk about. Tatum and beal close friends dating back to their highschool days both went to the same high school bill with something of a mentor to jason. Tatum actually got him involved with his trainer. Drew hanlin which helped. Tatum elevate his his personal skills and they've talked about how happy they are to be playing together. Played the all star game together for the first time beal last year of his contract. Like you know we've seen these conversations yield real tangible conversation. You'd like to be a fly on the wall on for any of these guys in the next couple of weeks. Yeah i mean look we. We have a history now going back over a decade. If we're to believe that the that the heels were formed in part through team usa activities. You know which is true which is true. That's that's yielded an extra things guy. You know guys who you mentioned. Tatum and bill because they were already friends but guys also become friends through this experience right and then they start getting the ideas about playing together. Like oh hey. This is a lot of fun. Let's do this again in the nba. So there's i'm i'm sure some of that is is happening. It always does. Who else in that group. I mean man. If any of these guys that'd be trying to recruit bam out a bio but he's too early in his in his contract with miami to pry him loose from there And you know the heater still a pretty potent team but you know jimmy butler is up there in miles and outta bios future won't necessarily be there forever. That's the way it goes in the nba. I think tatum has the potential to be like the biggest recruiter. They're like he's about to start the first year of his max level extension. He can recruit bill. But like you can also does damian lillard like. It's great to play in boston. I love it here. Answer some questions of my have a playing on the east coast for the first time. Like i think data might be boston's best asset at this point. Yeah again some of this comes down to bradley. Beal's coming up to that point where he has the leverage to task out because of his contract lillard under contract for several more years and so he's not in that position. So what if it says. Like i need to go like. I don't foresee the blazers being no finish your contract. Just don't see it. i think right. And they would work with him on a deal to sure but directing it is harder so beal can use the leverage of his free agency to say well if you send me to team x. I'm not gonna resign there. Which then blows up that deal and he can direct himself to the team he really wants to be at lillard would have a harder time to doing that. Because he doesn't have free agency looming two to play that card. Yeah well i encourage any reporter. That's in tokyo tatum. Beal and lillard talking to each other. Just take a picture and then let the internet go wild crazy because it will unquestionably last thing for you. Howard the breaking news. This week in the coaching ranks. Is that jamal moseley is headed to orlando moseley of course last with dallas. A really well respected assistant coach there. Who was a candidate for that. Maverick job before. It went to jason kidd my immediate reaction to that higher howard beyond i think being an excellent choice for orlando is that we're gonna look at at moseley and jason kidd on parallel tracks. The next couple of years moseley. There was a strong case to be made that he should have been elevated to that head. Coaching job he'd been considered for other head coaching jobs. Before most recently in new york he had by all accounts a great relationship with luka doncic i understand bringing kit in he's got a history with dallas and as riccar lau said publicly having a player that played the game like kid and having a player that plays the game like don-shik make some sense to pair those two guys together. But there's always going to be as i watched these two situations unfold. I'm gonna wonder you know. Did the mavericks make the right choice. Leading jamaa moseley go and bringing jason kidd in and there's so many variables in this the first being at orlando's in step one or maybe even steps zero of a massive rebuild right there in the negatives right now. I think there's still maybe more fat to trim on that roster before they really bottom out. Yeah and you know you talk about trying to build around. You know markelle foltz. And and jonathan isaac jonathan isaac for so long. They're getting hurt and he's a great player but they've loved writing in a weird way john stays healthy. He's still more of a complementary store right like he's he's a potentially defensive player of the year at some point. He's not a guy who you're building an offense around though and marquel foltz okay. He he got himself back on track in orlando. He has a career now where he didn't have one but he's not a foundational building block. Come on like that's crazy so the roster doesn't have much talent jamal. Moseley's is coming into a situation. Which a lot of first time head coach is committed to which is all right. There's a lot of work to do so You're gonna have to do a lot of development. You're going to have to take a lotta lumps in the win loss column. It's gonna be rough going for the first year or two or maybe three. Let's see how they can get things going. But you know as it has been a certain other like kenny. Atkinson came to look a completely hopeless situation in brooklyn but was known as development coach in atlanta. And sure enough. Everybody who went there. Joe harris spencer. Dinwiddie jared allen versus lower. First round picks. Guys who were you know whether they were reclamation projects whether they were low picks everybody seems to get better the second they went to brooklyn and play kenny atkinson and his staff congenial. Moseley have the kind of effect in orlando can the front office. Get him to kind of guys. That will thrive in that in that kind of environment and carve out careers from cells and carbon identities. Jamal moseley has a lot going for him. And we've heard like many great things about it but we often hear great things about assistant coaches who don't end up panning out so i always. We have to caution ourselves on these things. Because i thought. Brian shaw was gonna be a great head coach and he was. Everybody loved him all the players sung as praises when he was associate head coach under frank. Vogel indiana he goes to denver probably just the wrong guy at the wrong time but he hasn't had another shot since then but that went really badly. Brett brown was really great in in some respects for the for the early years of the process and then suddenly. It seemed like they'd hit some sort of ceiling. Eager kokoschka of had been talked about for years is a great assistant. Coach didn't work out. Swells head coach in phoenix. David dale bumpy ride in memphis and then disastrous in new york. We just don't know like luke walton. Another example like there are plenty of coaches who as their when their assistance. We hear and see the best of them and then you know some of them be go on it and have great success coaches. I mean tyler has been fantastic. Mike malone has been fantastic money williams. Nick nurse dwayne casey a lotta longtime assistance. Get their shot and then you know it. It works out in a dozen. It's all contextual. It's all just the opportunity you have the thing for dallas is. They went with a guy who has experienced jason kit. That experience was not necessarily good experience. Like i think most people around the would look at what he did in milwaukee in brooklyn and say. I'm going to steer clear. Maybe you'd rather have the the unproven. Jamal moseley versus the somewhat proven jason kidd but. I don't think we'll know what the right choice was there for a while yet. Because it's it's gonna take some time before we can evaluate moseley as head coach. I maybe jason kidd learned something in two years as an assistant. I mean that happens. You know working with lebron for entire for two entire seasons working under frank vogel maybe picked up some things that'll be useful to him as a head coach. Moseley to me. The key is giving him time. Like you've got to be committed to moseley for a minimum. I think of three years and more likely five years. And then you see what you have in head coach. You mentioned gore. I mean it's worked out for phoenix. Absolutely but i do think he got hosed out there i mean he only had one year on the job and that year was without deandra aiden chris. Paul had devon booker of course but that was not a good team that he was coaching. There i gotta get moses the because you want to see what the guy can do when you put that team in a position to win a great example to me is james breglio in charlotte. I mean berea. Was one of those guys assistant coach elevated to head coaching position in charlotte. Not great first couple of years there but when he was given players and chance to win he did pretty well. I mean up until lamelo ball went out the horns were really good team and i think they will be a good team. Going forward in part because of the borrego is a pretty good coach. I want to see this magic team. Invest heavily in jamal. The you're the guy developed these guys and we'll keep you around no matter what the won loss record says until you get a chance to win then you judge like brett brown six or seven days since brett brown left but i can see the for letting go of brett brown. I mean they had a talented team and to a degree the underachieved. But you've got to let the coach get a roster on that level before you really make any decisions about whether they can coach. Yeah well and that's the thing about. This is what set up says apart. I think the good organizations from the bad ones is that you you decide when you choose a guy. Especially if he's a longtime assistant not a guy with head coaching experience. And you've said we believe in this guy. This is somebody who's got a great trekker record as an assistant. We're going to first opportunity. It's your obligation to when you say investment. Yeah it's time investment. It's a give them all the tools to succeed. Give him the time to succeed. You've decided you believe in him. So stand behind that have the conviction to stand behind that and take some bumps along the way you know maybe maybe memphis and or the knicks should have stuck with david physed longer. You know we had heard nothing but great things about fiscal coming out of miami. Initially we may yet you know. Find out that he. He can be great head coach in the right situation. Maybe those worth rights situations. He might be one of those guys though. I love physios and assist one of those guys. Though the just the temperament is always important. Like the government like memphis yet. Some battles with market assault didn't work out your plus new york. You just might be one of those guys that doesn't have the right temperament to be is based on what we've seen a memphis in new york might be better suited for these ranks but if he succeeds in l. a. I think he'll get another chance right. Maybe i think the point being though that if you as an organization have identified a guy instead he we believe in him then. Okay then believe in him. Stick with them and make sure you've given them enough tools to succeed Is it a pulling the plug at the first sign of of struggle and that's what happens in the nba. too often. is that seems panic. You know the fans turn. There's some minor flare up. Oh the coach and player got into it. Whatever it may good teams that can happen on as well. And it's it's just. It's the way franchises. React so you have to know whether or not the guy is is is right and then stick with them. And so yeah. Let's jomo's should get a nice long here. She got a ton of latitude in orlando given where they are as an organization given the state of that roster. Yeah i agree. Howard enjoy milwaukee looking forward to hearing the conversation with the lazarus on friday. You can check podcast. Right here on the crossover feet again. Make sure you listen to howard's interview. Spencer dinwiddie from last week. It was really really strong. Enjoy -joy the mid west our. We'll talk when you're back on the northeast always a pleasure. My friend the newest player in the pre nba basketball landscape is overtime. Elite elite will begin playing sometime in the fall. And we'll be headlined by some of the top now. Former high school players in the country players would be paid minimum one hundred thousand dollars with some making north of that and have access to high level facilities training as well as educational programs to help. Get a better grasp on that. I'm joined by brandon williams the head of basketball operations for overtime. Elite and kevin ollie the former. Nba guard uconn. Coach was the head coach and director of player development bread. And i want to start here with you. Just kind of give me the ten thousand foot view overtime elite. What are the objectives. What what what was behind the formation of this league. I think any of us. Chris who've been around for a long time i've actually seen Sort of the downside of young players who entered into professional ranks to this point. It's been the nba Who are not ready. And so what does that mean you know not not ready to form and be stars or is it just not ready to be great teammates or is it not ready to be good partners. is sort of all that you know the idea that the work day is much longer than they know. And that there's more responsibility to be in a professional athlete The responsibilities to families and communities we just have to do a better job preparing them and here was an opportunity to be part of a program that wanted to address all that. It's not just about being a good player. It's like we wanna address the whole athlete. Hope so on. Three levels were hitting basketball. Easiest thing understand. I think businesses in our world is education And then there's brand you know. These young people now are moving at a speed that we aren't as older folks and they want to build things An earlier age particularly off the court so building a brand is important something that can last well beyond their tread on tire so we're hitting it in basketball business brand. That's that's that's really thirty thousand foot view. Kevin what attracted you to this job. Just like his dad is the whole person being able coach them from a mind body and soul Experience and understanding the mindfulness athlete I've seen it from a pro level. Got up tune into play thirteen years with twelve different teams so i understand like the different trials and tribulations you go through with a player not saying that these players are gonna go through that but is getting them more prepared if they do come into some certain situations where it's not typically going the right way. How can they manage that situation. So what they do today can echo into tomorrow and having the ability to kana paint on a black blank. Canvas is what a really attracted to me to to this you know. Ot league program we can take the player really shape the curriculum you not with teaching them about subjects. But we're really teaching them about themselves as well from media training From mental health issues. All the different things that come involved because we all know chris is stress. You know from success is a lot of pressures is a lot of people pulling at you. It's a lot of people won't certain things. But how do you deal with that from a player's standpoint where you can play when you get on the basketball court and half clear and not be caught up in the distractions of off the court issues. Um as desks desks were really kind of vocal. Spirit to give back in it and how these kids you know. Have these players be available at the moment of truth to make the right decisions and that was very important to me. Kevin as you mentioned you played in the nba brand. You played in the nba. As well i wanna ask both of you guys and kevin. I'll start with you like if this was available to you as sixteen. seventeen year. Old looking back. Would you have founded attractive with a definitely founded attractive You know i kind of thought the box anyway. I was from chris. Shaw from from from south central and i chose connecticut. So you places that. I didn't even know nothing about growing up. You always thought out the box and never wanted to go down a path that everybody was going down So i was always curious. And i think that's how my mom especially my mom. My dad raised me. So i definitely been curious of this situation. No no speaking now without you know took it. I'm not sure. But i think it really gave me another option to look at it and this is what we're trying to do not saying that the ncaa is wrong overtime. Leaders wrong or right. It's not about that. It's about if you really care about the student. Athletes you give them as much options as possible. And i think this gives the lee student athlete. Another option and i think you know it's a very Great option for them to have and if they choose overtime league we're going to give our whole heart to make sure they're developed on and off the basketball court chris i- jumping after coach It would have been interesting. Chris but i certainly would not have been a candidate i would. Let's just get that right. What what things that's important. We sit down going through just grassroots community and we spent months just talking to people educating about. You know what we're about who we are. Each of us has a reputation in some other space. Not here The this program isn't for everybody is not the right fit for everybody. We are cherry picking and a lot of ways. These are players that feel like they are destined for professional basketball. There are a lot of sixteen year olds. That don't know that yet and their parents aren't convinced that yet in people that support them. Don't don't feel that confidence yet. They may be another year away or two years away but this is not. This is not the right path for everyone. Twenty four athletes roughly twelve per class. We're looking at juniors and seniors and the truth is at this age. What was really funny about scouting them is everybody's skinny and like a lanky and underdeveloped and still has like a mountain of upside to you know to to get through before you can really see who they're going to be but you know if you have a young player like brand williams who's just dreaming of being an nba player but does not much certainty. That's even realistic We gotta be very careful about this approach In taking because there there are risks but for those that that have already established in this deke. They've established a day of separated from their class. You know jaylen. Lewis has an example the most recent example. He's he's he's elevated in separate. The draft isn't tomorrow though so there's still a lot of work to do but he's already in front running physician and it gives everyone low confidence that this is the kind of investment and the kind of pet that would make a ton of sense for players like that. Let me follow up on that brandon. Because you're you're entering. What suddenly become a fairly crowded space in terms of leagues like this. You know the g. league ignite is one season in but they've had a measure of success. We've seen jalen green probably a top pick. Jonathan kamenga top five or six. Then you have the ncw with this. Recent ruling allowing top players to make money off their name image and likeness. How does how does the elite separate itself from that group. Why think i is. We start a little bit sooner so the g. league zone a great job with what we call it a year the prep year that year. That a recent graduates would be going to college and they've already been hacking the system you know going to italy or china So so there's a market for those players and we want an alternative to college for for for us though. Our players are seeking an alternative to high school so we are a school but we think about the resources that were bringing to the table first of which being an nba like environment You know start coach. Ali coach lehto in a robust set of staff. I mean scouting staff a high performance staff administrative team. Our goal was to simulate an nba organization for for young athletes at sixteen seventeen eighteen. Th there there is no other environment. Like that. And i think the big way that we separate with high school athletes Is that both domestically and internationally. We're able to put twenty four of them together in a building. So what we're selling is the best competition for these guys starts at home. I mean every day in line coaches don't minister drills administer competition aspects of practice and getting ready for games but when you look to the right and left and i noticed as a player. There's no weak link. I mean everywhere you look. There's somebody that's doing what you're doing and possibly doing more. Because they they are not just dreamed about the into the league or to the high level. They're on their way there That's where we've been able to. I think create a little separation from others that have tried or looked at something. Like this kevin. How do you approach this job. Do you do it in a similar mindset and you had at uconn where you have young players you also you know yukon. You had to keep them academically eligible you to follow that pretty closely. I mean is there is it a similar mindset or do you take a different tact. I think you just let it be you know. Similar is not. It's just whatever comes you say yes to it and you cultivate hope from it I never coached high school players. They was always you know graduated from high school. And now they're freshman's This situation is a little different in in was recruiting for two to three years. This situation is a little different. But you know from me. Chris i love the unknown about it. And that's the space i live in. Not just wanna make sure that. I have the space incorporate something in these players that they can just think about it can build from a have a foundation so when they make the transition they have every tool in the toolbox to say okay. Oh that's a problem Assess it let me be able to correct it. Let me obsessed. Let me be aware of it and i think that's the difference between you know coaching a high school kid in in the college. Kid i mean you get able to mold them a little bit better and then you have to understand where they at. Now you know back then. I didn't have social media. We didn't have social media now. These kids these players are building their brand a little bit earlier and now you just meet them where they are. And i can't wait to get them up on campus get them up until atlanta just continue to build a great relationship. Welcome spend time with the one on one in. This situation is going to provide us to do a lot more skill development that i didn't have a really good opportunity and it had not one say good opportunity. I didn't have the best opportunity. Because there's so many things we own a row recruiting You own a row fundraising these different things. Brandon's taken care of in. Dan porter is taken care of. I can just really coach the player and work on his skill development on and off the basketball court. So it's really given me my own lane. So i can really perform my job. Mama job is really breaking down and relationships it starts. Relationship is start with trust. Stars will hold is spending time with the the young student athletes on and off the basketball court and pushed them to greatness and the competition is not on. our side of competition is with him. You know can you beat your previous best bestself. Can you be better than today you know. Can you be better tomorrow than you were date. And that's what i'm coaching. And that's what i love to do. And i think we're going to have some great young man as open as biden has going to be vulnerable going to try to reach for the sky. In the sky is going to be ob- you is not going to be limits. I can't wait to get up to atlanta. We've been having some many camps. Chris has been wonderful to get back on the court with the guys. And i'm looking forward to the next mini camp and dan looking forward to getting them up to atlanta. So we really can go to work. You know when. I was was talking to brian. shaw a couple of months ago. Kevin about how he was coaching. The ignite you know it was a lot of pro stop. He was trying to bring to that team. Are you taking that same. Approach you trying to coach them like their nba players or something different. No it's nothing different is just. I'm building pro. Habits in every situation is going to be different. Chris this is going to be some guys. Come in you know. Say for instance like a. John montero will we got him and he you know is a little bit more advanced than some other players because he's been a pro- already and then it's going to be another situation where we gotta talented guy might not be able to get quick but these opportunities we can go at our own pace we can sit down and talk to them but we're really teaching and building pro habits and those habits is going to translate over to them being great pros when that opportunity come invest in the nba are the euro league so every day you know we are building like a practice plan like more of a college practice plan nba practice bandwidth doing drills. That i got from my numerous stops in the nba. You know we're doing sets in the nba. Then we gotta understand that sixteen years old as well you know and maybe sometimes you gotta you know kinda doubt it down a little bit. But i'm gonna let com. I'm going to let that go. i'm not going to focus on one of it. I'm not gonna say oh. We're doing this process. Each and every day every day is different. And that's what i love about the unknown. And i'm gonna treat it like that and we just gonna continue to bill because i think we got great mas and organization that really want to coach the whole person. And that's what i'm really excited about. You decided to upgrade your outdoor deck. So you ordered the essentials. Power washer said a patio chairs and a shiny new grill. And you use your bank of america. Customized cash rewards credit card choosing to earn three percent cashback online shopping and up to five point. Two five percent preferred rewards member which you put toward your most essential deck addition a bird feeder of yours at bank of america dot com slash more rewarding copyright two thousand twenty one bank of america corporation support for this podcast comes from invent together according to studies less than thirteen percent of all inventors who hold a us patent are women black and hispanic college graduates patent at half the rate of their white counterparts. But we can fix that by increasing participation innovation and patenting by underrepresented groups. It would quadruple. The number of american inventors and increase annual gdp by almost one trillion dollars. Invent together is a coalition of organizations companies. Universities and concerned citizens committed to ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to invent and patent because the more diverse. The american patent system gets the stronger and more successful. our nation will become. What can you do to help. Divers inventors patent and unleash economic opportunity. Find out at invent together dot org learn more and take action today brandon not to continue to compare this team to the ignite but when i talked to sharieff abderrahim about that i mean. I had asked him about the sustainability of that team. Given how much. Money was being poured in to pay some of the players. And he bobbed and weaved floyd mayweather trying to answer that question. Because it's it's hard to commit to it without say a television contract more sponsorships and things like that when you can you speak to kind of the sustainability of this because we've seen startups with an influx of cash. Get get in big the first year. But then peter out. I mean what needs to happen. Four overtime elite to become a long term successful program while has got to answers. I think you know a concept. I mean we're we're selling on the ability to develop young players and have a more more pro ready right. So this is. This is the path we are offering basketball development. Call it professional Business development And we are also like leveraging. What is an incredible media platform that again. The things that we like to call a distinguishing factors. That's a huge one. So not to bob and weave one. We gotta be good ass. You know that. That's how have long deputy spurs the spurs. They were good for really long time. And so we've got the that there were good at this note. No pressure on kale right The the the second piece though is you know and this comes from my my time in the nba. It just wasn't that long ago where it out of chicago. Pre-draft combine interview. If i said. I wanna build my brand. Everybody in the room was like smirking and like you know what. What are we talking about like. It's about basketball basketball basketball And you know if you are young team developing and not winning a lot of games truth is you can't sell just basketball because your basketball isn't great you got to sell personalities and stories in that there's something that people can invest in in fall in love with other than like the final score like otherwise. The sixers had no chance right any any development team yet to buy into a story and for us. I think we have a chance to create stories but we get a chance to show those stories because we have a platform. So it's it doesn't take much. I mean i'm not a social media guru. But when i got recruited for this job haven't been around the block a little bit certainly from an nba perspective. I heard a couple of things. I really got my attention. One was fifty million followers That's eyeballs and we all know that that Business follows the eyeballs in whatever in whatever respect. The other was which is unfair. Because i think that number changes month over month but it started at one point four and not set maybe one point eight or one point nine billion with a b. billion views of content a month that overtime in some ways has found a way to the heart. The mind of young people It is being communicated and solid as you know the generation z. sort media and content engine We are doing an amazing thing here which is developing young talent in a pure way that we want to make sure that they are prepared. Top to bottom to do well on the court to do well and communities to do well in business but then there's this other thing which is they want to be known like. No player wants to play in an empty building. Everybody wants to play where it matters. They wanna play. When nick can rock and like the building and just like recognizing their talent. We're just artists. And one thing that is kind of showcase. By one event that that overtime overtime the media company producing s called. You see it on youtube to. Is that over. Hundred million people watched that. I mean that that's not an insignificant number that players that are going to play overtime. Lee will have the opportunity to be known The the opportunity of bring brick big brands to the table and support this platform If not already indicated by the kinds of investors that that have shown interest but the brands that are coming to the table our sustainability is going to be showing value delivering value to not just the athletes but to overtime visibility. I would imagine great for them but can you monetize it. Can you make it so this league is in the black or does it need to be in the black every year. Well my the good news is as a basketball man. No different than a different than the is Get a budget. My job is to be fishing and and spend wisely. I i'm not. I'm not asked to sell tickets or generate revenue that's for a tremendous And in successful a business operations Our job is to make sure that what we are delivering is high is a high level product That you see the growth and development of our young players. What's there recruited. We gotta make them better. They need to be able to perform and probably the best testament of our success is going to be our nba. Gm voting with this pick right but with a coach saying like they did a nice job. This guy was. Well coached testament to takeo and the rest of the coaching staff. That if we're doing that will prove successful. Because guess what the next crop of recruits when we're in the gym like we're not chasing them. There's sort of meeting us at at minimum half way. We need to keep bringing high level taliban and developing talent to prove successful and i have a tremendous set of partners across academics and across content media. That will will do their part to elevate our business. Can you expecting to tap into some of your. nba relationships. I mean as you mentioned thirteen teams in twelve seasons. You've made a lot of friends over the years. We're going to see like san preston sitting in the crowd for your practices as a whole so sam and so many gyms that i know you know Kevin durant and all these guys are destinies in overtime. Just having them be around. We had our first minicamp. Ray allen showed up and not only showed up. He brought his son to work out with guys. Just it was just amazing. does just see how the branches that we can continue to pull up on and they continue to pull on us and be a partnership in. This thing is going to be great. Are you expecting to have kind of drop ins. Durant's involved with the league. You expecting these guys. Just be around. Which i would imagine would be both a resource for you but also an attractive quality to this league definitely. Definitely we going to build a place where it's going to be hopefully a development premier development destination for everybody and you know hopefully katie can come out and work out with guys and russell westbrook and james harden and all these guys that we know and i know i had opportunity to be evolved. Then it's kinda beat a veteran guys We want them to be around. Because it's not. Just me sean. It's also watching tape like these are the different drills and look how k. d. and look how chris paul is using the pick and rolls and now they're showing up that's a that's a big big bang for us with us growing these young talented student athletes To get them inspired to the next level and they're doing a great job done only gonna do. I coached him. Chris a coach me on a day to day basis. I'm open to that and we just really want to have a love affair with guys and and the end of the day chris. We want appease the basketball guys. We wanna play the right way. We want to share a basketball. We wanna run. We wanna have fun. We want how to join the game but it can't just be me me me. It has to be weak. And i'm wanting to teach guys how to be involved in any system they get drafted about. They can be a part of a productive system and be a productive partner in in the community as well no matter what city they when they arrive to the nba brandon. Before let you go. What schedule gonna look like i mean is this team playing. Just walk me through kind of what these kids are getting into. And what kind of schedule you gonna be able to put together so schedule that that is really interesting for everybody. And i wanna try to illuminate. But i've got to be careful we are still contracting with some teams But for the audience the think about it in buckets. We're gonna play independent prep schools. That's going to be a significant part of our schedule. We are a high school so we are looking to schedule. Some of the top independence that you would typically no to have a national schedule can travel that have the ability to be mobile. We're scheduling home and away with with With those folks and it looks like net set as an example It looks like you know. Folks that are playing for a national title Arizona florida california. So it'll be a widespread travel schedule for us. We're also looking at European competition so think about junior euroleague as an example. Some of the best clubs the Insects as an example Where we can get a collection of sixteen to nineteen year old elite talent to compete against us. And then as i mentioned earlier on the show we really feel like the best competition is gonna come internally and that's where our league play Comes into effect so we are looking at our group of twenty four as three teams of eight. There will be standings you'll be able to track will compete against each other. That'll be a significant part of our schedule as well. We don't want to overstep our guys one of the things. We really wanna correct leading science. Guide us here. is is minimized the wear and tear. Nobody's while still developing and preparing for a professional level place so a schedule of maybe thirty five. To forty games is our target. We started september Training camp will will begin Play by mid august. We'll be done by by Late march is how we see our schedule shaping up i'm looking forward to it brennan kevin. It's a really interesting concept and hope you guys have a lot of success with an. I'll certainly be watching a lot of. Nba people will be watching but brandon. Stay out of a set of massachusetts. Kevin has like some basketball. Ptsd from all those bc. Matchups i'm sure would probably were so tough. I don't remember kevin. It's not real like talk about it. But lita past. We'd be six thousand. That's not very nice. That's hovering kevin brand. Thanks for joining me. I appreciate it all right. Thank you chris. Thanks so much.

Tatum's 60 Points Take the Celtics to Victory
"You know, Jason Tatum scored 60 points look world and we, you know, we go back to those days. Um, that's the year before I started watching. So I'm old and I, I really didn't watch the five season, that was really, first of all, the the game wasn't on that much, but I was off seven and I really. It hadn't really hit for me. It did the next year. So I've always seen that game, you know, with highlights or whatever. But that was a game, the Celtics were way ahead. They were, you know, they had that game. This was every single point that Jayson Tatum score was critical to winning that game. I mean, and it was, it was efficient, it wasn't like, I'm just going for it. It was. So it was all on the flow of how the game was going on. It really wasn't forced in any way. It was him going to the basket along, not gaining the free throw line, just taking control. And and you know, the other thing I want to say about that is he was taking control from the start. He was not found though that scene was horrendous with a capital age for the first 2 and 1/2 quarters of the game, he was doing everything he could. I thought both ends of the court to try to not be in that in that spot. It just took a long time ago. He led by example, of energy side of things too. Yeah, oh doubt absolutely out
Tatum Scores a Triple-Double Against the Bulls
"This was a game for all the Campbell haters because when Kemba misses the game, like I like Jason Tatum is cold as ice and you see the final score this one these guys could not buy a basket tonight. And this was the game that if Kemba Walker plays that's less time for Pritchard that's less shots for for Tatum who certainly couldn't you know wasn't on tonight and maybe they're getting better looks because Jeanne listen when Kemba Walker's Out There He commands a lot more attention than Richard does or, you know, whoever else you know Waters or whoever you want to put in there. So it's a little bit of a trickle-down effect. I will say I liked that song even though Tatum was off he found other ways to contribute. I mean triple-double tonight, you know, you don't want to just sniffed that away so credit credit for that

They also treated dale ties for malaga. So how you feeling about your celtics. Celtics in the celtics are currently eighth with. Yeah thank you saw also have like some some Locker room about them. You know Celtics are always interesting. Because you know with the danny never makes a trade you know and they always pup that we have all these assets but you don't ever do anything with them and what you do with them you get kyrie and he bounces right. You do all ever kyrie. You draft pretty well. Because you draft a franchise guy and jason tatum. And maybe a franchise guy or just below franchise guy jalen brown. But i just don't see it man i.

Keep in mind this a fun game to see all star game. There is no real. There is no reason to put it all on the line. So i just think these top five and the starting role with young. he's gonna wanna make a name for himself devon booker who another young gun. I believe it was their last year but he had come in as a subject here. So he's gonna wanna do good. I see more youth potential on durant. It's gonna want to actually make a difference a even zone. They gotta sign on on. These guys are young and go on and make statements looked for them to give more effort than people like steph. Curry people like Tombo people like chris. Paul i just i think they're giving give you more effort and that's why i think team durant's get win this game again. It's a fun game. Don't be surprised going down the stretch last two minutes of they just wanna play slam dunk mania because there is no real cost to this game. So you know. I don't think this is a game worthy betting on or immediate. Any real significance is not. It's an all star game. It's weekend time it's fun but nonetheless. Those are your two teams one more time team. The bronze can start with lebron at tombo steph curry luca danni in nikola jokic. They're going to go up against team. Durant team grant kevin's going on his chin leading outfits and on the side he'll be coach and bradley beal. Joel embiid kyle. Erring kawai leonard.

Which i i would put trae young on here before julius randle before on coal of Vic i would have put him on there before. So bonus I a big fan of trae young out of atlanta. He hasn't had the greatest. But you take trae young away from atlanta in the garbage and don't get me wrong garbage january's with out him. I mean he really is a one man team in most other teams are relying on much landed and it just goes to show you how good your quick helping gets inside and gets done. Betrayed young. didn't make it and you know they always say you can't have everybody. He's the one person i would have liked to seeing may get But nonetheless getting back to the point here. I think you're gonna see the younger guns on. Durant team tried to make the difference

Kemba Walker Rusty, But Also ‘Pain-Free’ In Return For Boston Celtics vs. New York Knicks
"Boston celtics had a bad weekend and kimball walking. I would call them. Losers kemba walker. I had a bad return simply because they got smoked at harm by the new york knicks by thirty points and kemba walker made his return now again. He didn't have a great game individually but he got through the game although he did leave in the third quarter with injury. He was fine to return if he could have been. He was that his minutes restriction. So he wasn't gonna come back now. We're getting drilled anyway but kemba walker said after all the right things felt good to be back at their now. It's just a matter of getting some getting his wind back and he's hoping to have that minutes restriction lifted.

Obi toppin they rookie came back Hit two threes as well. We we heard all about how he played at close to the rim. They knocked down threes last night. That's how confident he was feeling. Took four two of them so that was great. Julius randle had another very good game here for the knicks for the celtics. They just couldn't get it going at all here at thirty five points in the first half alone And i think it was only fifty after three quarters they had yes so really shocking performance here from the celtics once they get back once they get jason tatum back. I think they'll be fine but this is the one they want to flush down. The toilet drilled at harm. And that's what the coaches say.

"He's a guy that's come out and saying even in post came from yesterday, you're gonna expect to see me play more minutes. I've had these conversations with Coach Boone holds her and I fully expect to be logging more minutes. It's something he wants. It's something he'll be granted. I don't have. It's a non story from last night. It's an unfortunate bounce of Jason Tatum, three that was well defended. Miss free throw that he shorted on the second of two. He's your guy, and they made the right choice. And nobody in Milwaukee is gonna be questioning this decision to pay him. 220. Okay, let's move it out of the Celtics. So the Celtics won the game last night against the Milwaukee Bucks as we've mentioned now, I think five times Um and Jason Tatum is the one that had the game winning three and so You have been saying for a long time J to me that Jason Tatum now needs us. A little solidify himself is the superstar Gordon Hayward. He's already a star. He's already a star. But it's time now to put him in the category of superstar and this is now the year to do it. There's no more Gordon Hayward on that team. Although He's probably a star in the N B. A that I can't believe No one's even speaking about that. There's just no longer on the team, and no one cares. Says maybe he didn't add as much value in the bubbles. He was hurt, etcetera. So I guess my question to you is Jason Tatum even said himself. He didn't feel like he played that well last night, but he played well when it counted. So now this is his year to go out and prove that he can be Compared among the elite. He is in all MBA third team guy last year was great. He's a star. Jalen Brown is is one be on that team stars. Well, incumbent to those guys were all very good last year. This year. I want Jason Tatum. Trying contend for a first team guy. There's a lot of stars in the league. It's probably be very difficult, but Jason Tatum has the tools has the skill set to do it. And him demanding that shot have the confidence to take that shot. It's clear that is shot right? It was a fluke that it went in, but he wants those moments. What that game delivered last night, which was greatest Two stars trying to seize the moment when I was winning time. Tatum, with the Bank three was able to get it done. IATA's hit Went short on the second of the free throws. Jason Tatum. A moment like that. Those are the ones you want to see. More of. I expect to see more of Ah, Yannis Miss free throw not being able to deliver. I don't expect to see a lot of things. But for Jason Tatum and for Celtics fans. You want this star to take an even bigger step and becoming even more massive star? I wouldn't see Jason Tatum is a face off the week rights Not to that point, and I've heard J will and key shot of those guys have this conversation on this show. It's It's a fascinating one. It's a very radio conversation. Who are the true superstars in the MBA. Jason Tatum's Not there. Jason Tatum can get there. It's going to require more winning and more even more gaudy numbers and moments like yesterday he has the ability to deliver and check all three of those boxes. I look forward to seeing.

"It was about the Nuggets. It was about the obvious in the Clippers in the late change, Sure, but now you have Ah, shirt and then who are we talking about? In the East? The Celtics? The Bucks. Now you have a team in the nets that are and we weren't I mean the heat obviously down the wire, but I don't think that was a team that we were mentioning continuing, but now we are, but now we are And so now I'm saying you have a team in the Nets that have Superstars. They have depth. They have all the abilities to carry them throughout a season and into the MBA files. Is there bat more balance? Now? Between the Eastern? There's just another team shade that is, ah! You could throw in a contender. I'm saying front runner in the eastern. These nets, like a lot of people would follow along with me and say No, It's the next for the taking in the East, But you can't discount Janessa drew holiday out there with Chris Middleton with the Bucks. You can't discount the heat, ALS he culture how we saw that lead them to an NBA Finals last season. The Sixers maybe do they go get James Harden and pair him with Jo Ellan beat and get rid of been seven. I hope I just hope the Brooklyn doesn't make the mistake of going to get James Harden. I do take it Hardened gets moved, which is inevitable. It's a matter of when not if I do see him being rejoined there with Daryl Morey. And Fili, and that becomes yet another team. The Celtics. What with Jason Tatum is your legit Go to guy, Brad Stevens. I'll never discount him. There's a lot of teams worth watching. That is beautiful for the product. It's a very good thing, but right now I see a Nets team that I say. I don't know if there's anybody better than them out there. Except for the Lakers, who are playing with a sense of urgency and day one for me to truly know who they are yet, But I know they got LeBron James Anthony Davis had a better roster that they did a year ago and oh, by the way. They're the reigning NBA champion, so it's setting up very nicely. My hype is through the roof, and we've only seen two games. Okay. So speaking of the Lakers, let's go there. They lost last night to the L. A Clippers won 16 109 end. Jordan mentioned it. Probably not. The sense of urgency they were looking for. The Clippers got out to a big lead. It kind of gave it away. Obviously, in the second half, that's why the game and end up being so close down the stretch. And this was the Lakers. I don't think they let one time in this game. So the sense of Arjun see clearly not there. You kind of heard it, too. From LeBron James. After the game, just you know, it was a weird off season for him. He couldn't quite get his body the way you wanted to. We didn't know in the season was going to start like it's just feels like that kind of vibe right now for the Lakers. Those guys don't care what happened in that first game. I mean, we heard the comments about the conversation. With a D and LeBron talking about man. I can't believe we just played a game today. I mean, that's the mentality of the Lakers. LeBron knows the same sprint so he ain't thinking about what it's 40 time is Thinking about what his time is when you cross the finish line of the marathon, But there will be some intriguing moments as we find out how these other pieces fit in for the Lakers. How's my trust? Harold fitted? How's that? A shrewder Phillip Phillip, filling sugar filled in very nicely fitting into the puzzle in Game one. Marcus alone was not very effective. How will he be a peace Lakers roster is better than it was a year ago. That's all you need to know They won the title last year. Watch out for this team. Biggest thing to me, though. Clippers. 31 collapse First Nuggets collapse that lead in the first half of this one, A Paul George, who's known for making blunders off the court, and had some blunders on the court, obviously down the stretch of the bubble. Care business down the stretch. Paul George said My team right now I've got it. Yeah, Gotta stay focused. All right. To celebrate Festivus.

"But the celtics. I think one thing that if the celtics can get everybody healthy on the floor This team can really look forward to is how good this defense can be when everybody's healthy and able to play. I think tristan thompson was actually a fairly strong acquisition in the offseason especially for that price point. And i think there's gonna be some nights where marcus smart jalen brown. Jason tatum grant williams and tristan thompson. Make life very very difficult for opposing teams. So at its peak. I think this team can be really dangerous and potentially vinyls worthy. Everything breaks the right way. But i do think the beginning of the season is going to tell us a lot about the squad.

I'd like you to start with three. And for dramatic pause. I'd like you to go to two and then really take your time. Milk it and then give us your top overall. NBA player under 25. Got You OK, so number three? I mean, I think he's dispelling the Kardashian curse. Well, maybe not because he just had knee surgery. But he's a unicorn. If he ever gets a jump shot, any type of jump shot a Jason Kidd type of jumps like Jason couldn't do when he got the lead. I want to take Ben Simmons at number three. Ben Simmons, number three, agreed He cannot shoot the basketball to save himself. But that being said Still, one of the great players in the MBA, continued number three. Benson Number three would be been Simmons. Then I think this guy is a future star. This is tough man. Because bubble book is by doing his thing. But Jason Tatum, I mean, post career urban has found itself. I mean, I think Jason Tatum is going to be a perennial All Star. I think he's the best. Best player on the Boston Celtics team, and I think he is their future. Think he's going to be a definitely a max guy? He's going to be a guy that's going to be in Boston for a long, long time. And number one. You You have to go with the kid from Dallas number one, right? You just mess up the team's matters. I don't want to say hi, does it Why I mess it up? I was saying, I think the obvious choice is this. You could have said no, Dave. I'm not going with Luca, but the floor is yours. But I just don't happen to agree with you because you look at what Luke has been able to do. I mean, he's one of these guys where you know the toughest thing to ever do is we look at the scouting report you say? Hey, this guy's not fast. He doesn't jump really well. He just He just has a feel in a neck for the game. Did you see him yesterday with the past through the legs? I mean, he is so effortless, And what happens is he understands that he's not fast, but he understands pacing. He understands timing. He understands how to take over a game. You talked about what? He has 17 triple doubles. I mean, what are we talking about? This guy's the future star. I think he's the guy that should be getting out of Nike commercials. Maybe not Nike because he doesn't move fast, and it seems like when you have Nike both move, and he needs some, like new balance, because he just stable, you know, I mean, maybe some pro walkers or something like that, because he is just as cool as a cucumber. And I think Luca Dodgers is the biggest are under 21. I think he's gonna have that Hall of Fame resume. And he's going to lead his team because he's able to facilitate and make those around him better. I think he's gonna have a couple championship trophies underneath his bill before it's all said and done. He is really unbelievable.

"A lot and let other guys have stepped up besides Jason Tatum, but Terry Stotts made sure Tatum wasn't gonna have a ball in his hands and the third I did take it out of his hands. He wasn't as aggressive as we saw him in the first half. But Theo offense really cranked up to about that quarter, 38 points on 12 2149 from three and they only had one turnover. Circuits had 11 in the third. Lillard had 11 with third. And here we go start the fourth quarter and a three pointer from the wing by Who else? Damian Lillard and the leads down to five.

Celtics, retained possession affair with four forty four to go in the third quarter spreadable how they can't maintain. What's working twenty one fast-break points for the LA Lakers? Inexcusable number forty four to go in the third. So they've already eclipsed with normalcy. Give on the fast break their second in the NBA and point rain fast-break points at twenty point four per game. James will have a C.

"In sports. I'm Tim Montemayor along the Packer hall of Famer and Super Bowl champion, Mark tau. Sure. And boy, tau sure I gotta tell you between the NBA all star Saturday night. Tennessee loses. Number one, Tennessee goes down to Kentucky. Number two, Duke knocks off NC state. So it looks like Duke is gonna find themselves back on top of the national rankings this week. This has just been a chaotic Saturday, and oh, by the way, you're going to hear from Mark gear ago. See attorney for Colin Kaepernick who did a major interview today that's coming up in about twelve minutes. So don't go anywhere, Mark. What's the biggest story of the day in your mind? Well, Tim, I I'll tell you what I think you mentioned it at all star weekend. I think the Saturday night for a lot of us. It's kind of the most entertaining. I personally the three point shootout with the way the NBA is going what a great EMMY twenty th I think twenty three or twenty four points didn't even get you into the final three. So that was exciting at you mentioned Tennessee getting beat I love the fact Antonio Brown went on Twitter started answering questions af it used to be. This is kind of the slower time of year new. There is so much stuff to talk about. But I think the NBA all star weekend is always whatever that comes. I do think it's the best of all of the professional sports all star weekend. I think they do the best job bringing back older players, and keeping it, you know, the young game was last night. You have the dunk contest everything else. And then it all kind of finishes off tomorrow night with a game that somebody will price score two hundred points it. Yeah. I would love to see two hundred points, frankly, because I actually think the NBA all star game is really enjoyable of the major league baseball all those ones, and maybe that's different show, but I like the game itself, but let's get you into who walked away with trophies tonight. Jason tatum. I think the skills competition and his win. And if you didn't see it. Jason Tatum of the Celtics hits a half court shot. Traveled faster. Mark, Sharon, maybe there is science. And I know that you are a actively intelligent scientists yet. But maybe there's trajectory in angles in degrees. Got that half court shot there before trae young who is standing at the three point arc could and Jason Tatum with the half court heave wins the skills competition. Joe Harris who came out flaming had a twenty five twenty six beat Steph curry in the three point contest, Joe Harris place for real quick come on the Brooklyn nets. Joe Harris, say New Jersey Nets. Yeah. I think that's that's that. Somebody was joking that he was a teacher in somewhere in Kansas. Oh was that a joke? I actually thought it was real based on how he looks. You mentioned the Jason Tatum thing what was fun about that. You know, what that reminded me of you ever played lightning with your buddies? And you're almost trying to jostle the ball out. You just fire it up at the hoop and Tatum knocks it into win which I think I thought there used to be three players. I really liked what they've done and you see that was a good list of players a dunk contest. We were not seeing the stars. And I think that's a reason why it was probably my third favorite of the three events tonight. But I really liked the skills contests. I think it added a little fun. And I think all these kids that are watching it can go out and say, well, you can draw that up through some things fire passer, retire go down to a laugh and make a shot. So I love that. I think they really I think the NBA really gets it right with the night. Like tonight. Could you do it by the way, could you run through the little jerk cones, and can you still dunk a basketball? Oh, I I cannot I couldn't I never could. But I'm surprised. Seven and a half inch vertical? Leap. Yes. An offensive lineman. You're such a superior athlete. I just thought for sure. But anyway, the point is. Nothin'. Anyway. I thought saying, yeah, I think I can hit a three in the NBA. I could not throw the pass through the tire. I think I'd have real trouble. That'd be the hardest part of that. But Jason Tatum Windsor skills competition. Then Joe Harris, I think this is why the NBA is so wildly popular. Because if you didn't see Joe Harrison Steph curry Steph curry had to have a perfect moneyball rack at the end of the final round any missed his last shot, and he had really essentially one bad rack in his final round. And it cost him the win. I thought I mean, Joe Harris said he's going to he's going to give the three point trophy to the university of Charlotte because they allowed him to practice in their Jim. Like, I mean, this was just a feel good night until the dunk contest. So which by the way, okay, sees Diablo one. What is it time to get rid of the dunk contest? It is. I think you know, when the when the Brian and a lot of the stars decided that I think they didn't want to do it. And we heard some players earlier at a press availability kind of talk about how social media and Twitter has amp the game up so much you seize ion. And you see a lot of high school players doing these crazy doubts in the NBA guys are like what am I gonna do differently? And so guys don't wanna go put themselves out there. So I think we have some different ideas. Like we were talking a little bit earlier. Why did it again a horse one eight person bracket and you go play horse. I don't think it will be the problem is TV was could killed along. Maybe have to go to pig or you have to get it down a little bit that could be fun. Well, we start the it's not a game a horse. It's a game Mississippi, then horse then big. I guess I don't I don't know. But I think it'd be fun because you know, what I envision I envision Steph curry standing in the tunnel shooting three like he does every night in pregame warmups for those of you don't know Steph curry stands in the tunnel at oracle arena and shoots a really long three. And the crowd loves remember the old commercial with MJ and Larry Bird, right? Oh, yeah. Donald's people love that spot. That's what I had. Visit guys do a trick shots and everybody using their creativity that could be yeah. That would be a ton of fun. Well, as we talk about NBA all star Saturday night on ESPN radio and the ESPN app whether or not it's time to get rid of the dunk competition. I. I'm a product of Jordan versus Dominique, okay? So I remember Kenny Walker and Spud Webb those are the dunk contest. I remember, and those are no longer the case. And I think you're this. Yeah. The stars not wanting to do it. I don't know how you fix that. Lebron james. I'm not getting in the dunk contest. Right. And I don't think anybody blames what there's not a ton to gain. And I get that. Lebron? I think earlier in his career he probably should have done it decided not to incense, then I think you've seen other stars kind of take the LeBron approach much like they've taken the approach of what we're gonna. We're gonna form super teams or do all this other stuff. You also see that. Now at the league is built on stardom. And when you have guys that most people don't even know that win it, I think that kind of ruins it. And then the fact that there's all these myths doubts, and they are constantly going to different formats the days of Dominique versus MJ at the old bowls arena. Where? Dominique got home or a little bit. That's. I think we need to get back to. Well. I grew up in Chicago, by the way, Dominique still today. One that dunk competition, that's the greatest and windmill dunk I've ever witnessed. But here nor there, you know. I think nobody wants to do the three the slam dunk contest because they're all busy practice in threes to win the dunk contest. You have to practice dunking at that level. I think is a skill. And I don't think it's easy to to. And by the way, it hurts dunking and practicing dunking, Kurt your risks in your hands. And everybody wants sure, oh, I know that I absolutely Kobe. I've actually Kobe and I've actually talked about this. I'm not kidding way. Back in the day. When I I covered Kobe and the Lakers. He and I talked about this. Because it does it hurts your wrist and stuff so here near there. Anyway, I think there's it is time to get rid of the dunk contest. Without question. Your thoughts are welcome on the one eight hundred flowers dot com Twitter feed, you can find me Tim Montemayor the Monte show. M O N T y the Monte show. And of course, he is Packer hall of Famer and soup. Bowl champion, Bartow. Sure. And you could find him at Mark sixty five. The other story today was a massive interview by Mark Garrett goes capper.

In fact, there on a winning streak because Westbrook shooting and scoring less. So this idea I don't buy. The Jason Tatum is gonna leave. This was reporter Tim McMahon telling Brian Windhorst this week that Jason Tatum would be okay. Leaving Boston on wind horse podcasts. It's gossip the gossip is Jason Tatum wouldn't mind if he's shipped to northern hesitancy the face of a franchise somewhere. He's he's not going to get that opportunity in Boston at least not in the immediate future. I don't nothing against this. Reporter they're gonna maxim.

"They Jason Tatum in the package. Even though you heard the last couple of weeks with the Lakers with coups mauve ball. They can still offer that during the summertime. So I think it was a smart move the pelicans to wait until the summer for the deal, Anthony Davis. So stocked up New Orleans pelicans. I will say it was very smart. Because they got the Lakers to play themselves. That's what happened. Because the Lakers went all in with their poker chips, and the deal was never gonna get done before the deadline because like you said the Celtics couldn't get involved yet because of the rules. So why would you make a deal before you get the best possible package available and get multiple people bidding for a day. And the Lakers went all in man. Now, we want to see how that's going to last the rest of the year with the rumors about Luke Walton. Lebron's is about most of the players on that team. Hey, we'll see how that does pen on out. What you got for me stock number two. All right stock number two is Dany aged the GM the Boston Celtics compare relating to Marquel. Foltz who traded to the Orlando? Magic are two years ago. He passed on the number one pick traded down to number three got the player that he wanted and picked up another asset. And it's not the first time he's made a trade where Kyrie Irving the Brooklyn nets getting all those draft picks, hoping the Celtics rebuild. So when Danny ages made a trade, he's really one the trade by a landslide. So Danny Ainge gets a stock up the number two. Nice. It's gotta make sure it's team doesn't Kelly. Stock.

"Celtic fans, Bruin fans all all eyes are on New Orleans and what they will do with Anthony Davis. Will they trade him to the Lakers by tomorrow's deadline will they wait for Boston to make it better off for the summer. Will they go and it completely different direction? According to you, Chris Mannix. The Celtics have refused to dangle Jason Tatum in a trade and to complicate matters AD seem to endorse a move to the Lakers by liking this comment on Bleacher reports Instagram describing a Lakers trade offer our Chris where will Anthony Davis end up. My gut feeling at this point is he's going up in Boston. And it happens in the off season looked you've seen the public reports about the Lakers backing off. That's obviously a tactic at this point. They'll reengage at some point in the next twenty four hours. But there are people inside the pelicans organization that believes steadfastly that making a deal right now doesn't make sense. And I'll be honest. Canvassing the league the last week or so to talk about different things this subject comes up, and I've yet to talk to an executive that thinks a good idea to make a deal for Anthony Davis before the deadline, the only downside for making deal. The eyes of so many is that you have to hold onto this guy for three months and deal with the fallout that comes from that. But lot can change in a few months the draft lottery. Odds come out and Boston get into the mix. And I think once Boston gets into the mix we could discuss all the variables that that Boston has to account for. But once Boston gets into the mix their eagerness for Anthony Davis, and they've been frosting over this guy for the better part of two years their eagerness to get Anthony Davis will cause them to put a big time offer on the table. What is the big time offer that doesn't involve Jason Tatum? The biggest offer involves Jason Tatum. They could throw a few other things out there. Look, they're going to try and what I said the Celtics are not willing to discuss specifics with the pelicans right now because they know if they tied themselves to a specific offer they have to hold up that end of the bargain or else their credibility across the league is shot. So they're not specifically time themselves saying Jason Tatum is off the table. What they're saying is just hold off will discuss this in the summertime, they do believe internally that it may take Jason Tatum to get a deal done. Of course. I would I would argue that the listen, I think people in my friends in Boston have drastically overvalued. Jalen Brown and Terry Rozier, whomever else the crown jewel of this Tatum. The only way there's a trade piece of Ayla better than Tatum is if whomever gets Zion lottery ticket puts that on the market. And I would argue the only team that would do that as the Knicks like the Cleveland's not going to do that. Because they couldn't keep him. Atlanta. Phoenix understand what I'm saying. Like, none of those seems trade eight years of Zion for one year of Anthony Davis now. So I I even though Tatum is doesn't look as great as he did at the end of last season. I agree with you. That Tatum is going to be an all star the all MBA caliber player that the pelicans so desperately want. But what is the downside to me? The downside is very simple. It's that the Celtics don't offer Tatum, which they have not committed to do. And the pelicans earn a position where it's the quite trait. And it's like wait for Leonard. We gave up. Him and Danny green. And we got back to Rosen Pertile and one first round pick. When they have sitting out in front of them a trade right now. When I presented the Ingram ball coups, MMA, zoo, bots and two I people said that that might be a little too much. The Lakers have now added in heart and they'll take back bad salary. If Jason Tatum never comes available. There's not a better trade available them that one. But you are sitting there, you're assuming that that trade is off the table come July first that that's your argument that trade is gone July. First, I don't believe that. I believe that trait or something better is going to be there around that same time..

"What New Orleans does it. No right now is at Boston would put Jason Tatum. Veal what New Orleans would like. For all x and young players. You want to know that you're getting a guy one player at least who has all NBA potential now. Maybe that's Brandon Ingram. Maybe Lonzo ball can still be that. But I think most agreed Jason Tatum is headed toward that in short order. But they don't know if Boston would do that Alvin gentry tonight after their game on dealing with all of these distractions, which by the way, if he's cleared to practice, and it does he play. That's another one. How hard is it for right now to manage the situation? It's such an unknown. They're Anthony Davis is not gonna play before. Thursday's trade deadline. But the question will be is if he stays in New Orleans does he play the rest of the season there? Now, Anthony Davis and enrich Rich Paul his agent have said all along that they want to play. What does the organization do? Do. They want to risk a risk getting injured. Do they want to risk losing that value in him? What is the league office? Do if all of a sudden they say we don't want him. I mean, they can put him in a uniform and not put them in the game. They don't have to play them. All those things are infla-.

"I think this is probably the most challenging year coaching from Brad Stevens. As of yet. He has an abundance of talented at abundance of riches, and he's a guy that we've always known made the good great. What is he going to do with great talent right now they have starters right now that are on the bench Gordon Hayward? Jalen brown. I'm scary Terry rosier, they have ventures that are now starting Marcus Morris. Marcus smart, and then they have guys that have solidified their roles, and Kyrie Irving also Jason Tatum and Al Horford, but now coach olives and figure out what's the best midst. What's the best roster? So this is the hardest job Brad Stevens as of yet largely because he has so much talent to juggle. And I think as players are putting out maximum effort is just about putting the pieces of the puzzle. Also, absolutely put it on brass team. Because we've always looked at him as kind of like this whiz kid. We saw last year we cover you urban was out. He saw how this synergy that. The team will move the ball.
