"jayson tatum kemba walker" Discussed on The Free Agents

"Yannis last year they're building that wall and the spreading out those arms and it yeah it's going to be a blast to see how they do that against Jayson Tatum Kemba Walker and Jalen Brown on the perimeter especially because the celtics don't necessarily have a an inside type score. So yeah, can't wait for that. They have the best defense in the playoffs other than the Lakers, who have how the blazers down the worries I guess maybe see Adam is broken out. On offense but are they too good too early as that a Geraldo I mean they've been down for two months they've been in. Florida. The longest of any NBA team. Have obviously been steamroll in from game. One of the bubble scenario I. that's the only worry is that sometimes you can't play great basketball for months on end because yeah, as we said the. Their playoff series might not suffer weekend on the conference miles. Long frigging time. But those are good worries to have. Yeah and like the Celtics did in game three years the sixers they can play games. The wraps have proven and still win the game because the is that talented. They've been there before the playoff experience. Hey, let's just put together a little run here in the final two minutes we can. We can still this rap stood it in one of these games against the nets even so yeah. to He's still on fire. Twenty two, point six, ten from three point Ranji at the half quarter there in games three, he said seventeen threes in this series van, he's turned into Ray Allen. It's you love to see if you're a wraps fan which I obviously I'm there with the half good shirt anything to add their trae Orly. I watched this game and I don't remember anything that happened except for broadband bleed making that half court of this thing is over this one's a sweep you know the nets have done the best they can they've played hard, but it's just not going to happen. I mean, the nets, it's made a good test though actually for the reps they've had to work hard, which is great for them going forward but they too good in the netzer depleted Niger Harris's goals that help that sucks for them. But this is fine for the requisitions. All they need is just keep playing hot I WANNA do that when they ffices celtics they battle-tested. A team like the wraps right now, task to speak to you know you're worry about them playing too good too early is. They sure hope they probably can start that Celtics series right away. Right and they don't have to take a week off because the way they're playing. For the most part they're pretty locked in. So so we will see I. Mean I had the the nets winning one game I sure as hell don't see it now I think I think this ends on Sunday. Unless John Again, he said like are only he basically said only chance to beat this team is we gotta shoot like fifty five threes and hit like. Twenty five, thousand, five, Yeah Yeah. and. So they gave her the going game three and. Obviously didn't hit enough and they're just going to try again I think in game four well, it's bomb away from outside the nick nurses. So diabolical, he'll probably like, hey, let's totally switch up our defensive game plan. Let's take away all the threes now. That'll be like damn it. Now, we gotta go through Jared Allen Okay. Here we go. Get Him forty. They've been they've been a good story, the Brooklyn a good story coming down to the Orlando stealing that seven spot from the Orlando. Magic. Plan their butts off having one of the Games of the bubble so far playing against the Portland Trailblazers Blazers and having a lot of young guys really step up and gain this experience. It's a positive I. Don't know why feel bad about saying this was going to be a sweet back in January and February when these things were lining up but I just feel bad. So I had to throw in that little bone there. Now I don I didn't have to, but I honestly do think. We all know it was a great great little story for for the Brooklyn, and thanks for giving us that game against Damian Lillard that was I was a fantastic. We'll see if shocked Vaughn has done enough to warrant keeping the job. Guess. Got To ask Katie about that but we'll find. A little bit news that Collins he's going to require season ending ankle surgery. Now, the Blazers said earlier in the week that call was diagnosed with a stress reaction injury to his left ankle, he would be reevaluated. Well, he's been reevaluated. News is not good like I said season ending. Ankle Surgery. Maybe, not a surprise. I don't think not the colons was playing all that. In the bubble down there before the injury but. Anything to add to this guys I mean already. You know pretty. Short staffed Blazers team now, you don't have another big. You got to hope that whiteside can put together a couple more games here versus the Lakers. Right? Yeah. Collins has really been struggling and you know it's not surprising that he probably was going to be replaced in the lineup regardless. But you just if you're Portland, this has been the story of your season somebody's getting hurt at all times. So that's a bummer but the biggest loss for them is just that they have one less body and now you have to rely on whiteside so much more. You know he was great in game one, he had five blocks and he was instrumental in lock down the Lakers and protecting the rim that wasn't the case in game two. But now you got to hope to have an engaged Tucson whiteside for every game because he's GonNa be playing especially if collins isn't going to be able to go. Hopefully. It's better and ready for next season because he's a guy that has some promise out there you'd think he'd be like a kristaps porzingis maybe protecting the rim a little bit with his length and athleticism enabled the stretch, the floor and. Never actually figure out how to make his threes in the corner I felt like there were so many times the seating games, the ball get kicked collins in the corner you're like, here we go. Here we go. Let's see this one's actually dropping. It wasn't down in Orlando, but you know get the ankle right and then Get the shot right for next season. He seems like a guy that if he's your fourth or fifth best player on your team like you're pretty happy with that because he has shown promise obviously prior to the bubble situation where he just couldn't hit a shot, he was like clanking off the side of the backbone and There was some pretty brutal attempts but yeah, best of luck to him get back. You would think he'd be back for next season whenever the heck that starts anything to add tasks earlier and go to the next thing here. I will I, want to add anything about Zach cons get right. You got a nice little built in excuse for not playing well but you said a lot of a he hit the side of the glass with his three point shot. There's been a lot of those. Her husband. Yeah, and I'm glad standing Gundy is also pointed out just how many guys have been fouled on three point shots down here to. Man. So many in the game it's sort of continued a little bit in the playoffs and not like from is like doing the reggie like really kicking the legs and like getting away with one for drama context. Geysers trying to close three points users and just like too aggressive veneer they're hitting them or or getting into their space that you can't allow them the land. There's been a lot of that stop doing that salmon goody broken broadcast. He was like he was going through the numbers man he's he's a thirty, five percent, three points you're. Now you're telling him, he's an eighty percent free throw three point zero now is percents free throw shooter like do the math he was really breaking it down. So he knows his numbers noses voting as well..

"Better teams in offense second in opponents, points per game, so that's defensive stat holding the other team to as as many little points as possible as little as possible and their second in the league in opponents, points per game in only one hundred and six, so whenever teams play them the only average one hundred six points a game. Second in the League fifth in the League in all -fensive offensive rating so basically fifth in overall fence so. Beats their top not top ten in points per game, however you know. Top Five Enough Bentsen in the entire league in large parts of three guys, averaging twenty points per game like I said the only league that does have that. Then the less fin offense here's another coal stat fourth in defense. Okay, so we talk about the bugs the Lakers you know teams, the Clippers seems that are not all over the place. But you know some of their SAS are not always top ten top fifteen, and some other ones are five top ten kind of all over the place in some their team statistics. The Boston Celtics over somewhat steady in their team statistics. You know nothing's too great. Nothing's bad. Everything's pretty steady. Everything's good. You know nothing's bad. Nothing's necessarily great. Defense is very good, if not great, but again very steady in all of their team statistics second in opponents, points per game eleventh in points per game, still fifth in offensive rating fourth in defensive rating. So as far as those statistics go a very proven team, a very steady team who who has been playing at a steady pace, all season right there in the midst of the pack, not in an elite group and I guess a nine team. You WanNA underestimate. This season alone we've seen them beat the Lakers, the clippers and the bucks this year, not a thing you know, too. Many teams have had have done besides those teams that have named Lakers clippers, box and Celtics. Those were the only teams who have beaten those those other teams that have named the Celtics are right there in the midst with those Lakers, clippers in bucks They've beaten them this season. they're tied with the Lakers and the clippers I believe in their series. Season series I believe they're down one game, one or two games to Milwaukee. Nonetheless, they have beat them this season. and let's go back to the twenty seventeen. NBA Postseason, twenty, eight thousand NBA postseason were Lebron's last run in my in Cleveland bringing that team to the finals that he did. You know not necessarily something we also coming. but Jason Tatum in the Celtics Warriors. The team was in Lebron's way in the Eastern Conference Finals Talk Lebron Seven Games in those eastern conference finals. As a rookie, Jason Tatum was a rookie. Also at the time he was the focal point of that offense him and Jalen Brown. The two highlights of that team at the time also now obviously, but you know three years. This was three years ago. They were taking Lebron, and and not a good supporting cast. Let me let me say that. The Brandon not have a very good team that year, nonetheless, they took Lebron James, and the Cleveland Cleveland Cavaliers Seven Games in the eastern. Conference finals again in these guys, rookies rookie years. If not sophomore years, it's been three years since then you know. They've got a whole lot more experience under their belt as a team as players and. I said they've beaten the Lakers clippers and bucks this season. I don't think they should be a team. People are doubting I think they will beat the seventy sixers in the first round. They will be Toronto I think if they match up. The biggest test for them is going to be. You know Milwaukee and that Greek freak do they have an answer? CAN THEY BUILD? Build a wall around the hoop. You know like they saw Toronto Goulash your. They replicate that and disrupt Jaanus and get him away from what he likes to do. That's where it's GonNa. Come down to and if they can do that, you know I. I do have faith in them. If you. If you listen to podcasts last week, I believe last Monday I talked about. My playoff prediction and I don't have the Celtics winning. Let's be clear I. Don't have them winning the championship. I don't fight to bet that's not the team. I would bet on like I said they are simply my darkhorse a team. I don't want to count out some of the team that has been slept on this season in a team i. think is capable in large part. To you know in large part to do with. They have a veteran coach, Brad Stevens and you know three guys in Jayson tatum. Kemba, Walker and Jalen. Brown averaging twenty plus points a game. A veteran Gordon Hayward. Also. You know to help that guy like Marcus, smart and his cancer coming off the bench, very good team, I have beaten these high level teams. This season I'm very excited to see what they can do in Orlando Hopefully they've all stayed in shape with the all report to play. We all up to wait and see how that's going to play out. If players are GONNA report and play report to play on which ones doom which ones don't. But if they have the whole roster in you know, don't take this Celtic team for granted. Don't sleep on them. Because they could very well go ahead and win the NBA finals this year. but yeah, yeah, very good, very good young team. Very good young team very exciting for the future, but again don't count them out. Do not count those guys out. For this segment I'm GonNa go out and take a quick break. Greg grab a snag, oil water water, and then when I come back what I'm going to do, I'm going to talk about the NBA regular season awards.

"jayson tatum kemba walker" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP

"The staples center and John we appreciate a few minutes first of all from what you can garner would we know Kemba Walker is out today how concerned are the Celtics about his health at this point I don't think it's that big a deal I'm sure if this was a must game a playoff game that he'd be out there ready to go just you know load management like we see time and time again throughout the NBA so I don't think there's any big concern for Kemba Walker as we move forward that's certainly the a term of the NBA in the two thousand twenty era so I wanted to ask you we know the Celtics Lakers rivalry was historic in the eighties it's never quite felt the same other than short bursts since that time so do you think John that the two thousand twenty version of these two teams could renew that rivalry for as the first match up between these two this season it didn't do that yeah I sure hope you know obviously the eighties for me of being my age was the greatest thing ever I mean I think the greatest rivalry in sports was the Celtics Lakers and it's it seems to get that big feeling again as I walk into the staples center today to see bill Russell here I just saw Kevin Garnett walk in I'm sure it'll be some other former Lakers will Michael Thompson sitting to my left right here so there's a lot of Laker greats it'll probably be here as well obviously with Kobe's memorial tomorrow a service here staples is gonna be a lot of luminaries here I'm sure but you know those finals in oh eight oh nine whatever they were eight ten they had a great field to I remember being here for game seven between the Celtics Lakers and there's not much better than that then a game seven between these two historic TSB enemy ello NBA analyst John Barry whether you want to call the Celtics Lakers later this afternoon what matchup intrigues you the most here today well any time you have lebron James and these wings for the Boston Celtics you know gore Hey Richard guy to me that's really been overlooked for this Celtic team obviously you want to talk about Jayson Tatum Kemba Walker the two all stars but Gordon Hayward's got his form back we remember the horrific injury obviously but before in Utah for a couple years this guy was an all star player a twenty four point score either eighteen points per game just because you're not gonna have three guys average over twenty that just doesn't happen in the NBA but he's shooting the ball a terrific almost forty percent from the three point line and he's a difference maker to may so you know those three guys Jaylen brown Tatum and Hayward all going up against lebron James and I think we'll see a very hungry Laker team after getting a hundred thirty nine put on a losing by thirty to their worst loss of the season I imagine we see a very spirited Laker group here this afternoon now I know in the Davis is dealing with a bruised calf I I hear that he's expected to go anyway so I'm curious to know if you think it's going to slow him down at all and then also John AZ Anthony Davis allowing lebron to age gracefully or is the bronze is not a actually hitting that age decline yet like we thought maybe he was yeah I think a deal be fine at what he did was just a bruise it happen in the first half of the Memphis came he came back and had a incredible second half of the kia twenty four in the second half I it's seven blocks in that game a look like a defensive of the player of the year candidate so they'll be no problem for Anthony this afternoon and yeah I I think it's a great luxury of for lebron that Anthony Davis is a guy they can go to a late in ballgames and and maybe a little less stress for lebron James but man he looks rejuvenated obviously didn't play in the playoffs last year I missed the last twenty or so ball game so he had extended period time off that he hasn't had a lot of years and it shows because the energies there are spying on both ends of the floor of the floor leading the league in assists at the age of thirty five would be the oldest since the NBA's ever had he's been he's had a credible year but after the Davis obviously play with a guy like that makes the game a lot easier John very ESPN NBA analyst has the Lakers and Celtics this afternoon here on ESPN radio couple of other things around the league the other occupants of the staples center haven't played particularly well lately what do you make of the clippers at the moment well I would venture to say that they haven't had over five practices as a full team and I know they haven't had five games with their full complement of so that that's a big deal I think if you just put the teams on paper I would pick the clippers I would take that roster but again with all the things that have gone on the injuries Paul George with the load management with Kawhi Leonard Beverly's missed time you add Marcus Morris now you add Reggie Jackson it's a team that they're gonna need three two to three weeks at least by the end of the season to get some camaraderie to get some familiarity with each other as they move in the playoff you can't just stick a bunch of guys on the on the court without practice time without game time and think that you're going to run through the Western Conference and get to an NBA championship so health is going to be big like I said those last couple weeks we need to see this clipper team in full if they're gonna make a run the playoffs sticking with some of the other story lines around the NBA Steph curry he's eyeing reportedly a March first return if you were the warriors would you bother bringing curry back well I don't know that it's up to the workers I I saw stuff amount of attendant days ago two weeks ago and I said you coming back he goes yeah I'm bored okay well if that's if you're bored you you've got to go play go play I don't know that is that big of a deal of obviously they don't really need to win at this point of the better the draft pick the better the opportunity they have either make a trade or get a better player obviously but yeah he just said he's bored he wants to play he loves to play and I don't think it's going to be a much heavy lifting because this team regardless of the SDF career not a not gonna win a lot of ball games John there's been a lot of concern around the Sixers this year and now Ben Simmons aggravated this back injury he suffered earlier in the week there seems to be according to Welch real concern on their part that would that in essence really do in the Sixers in the east for this year no question if Ben Simmons as a player they have no chance I would say even if he does play and they start on the road they have no chance at have you seen them on the road lately it's it's unbelievable to have this discrepancy I believe they have the best record at home they've only lost twice at home and I think there may be nine and twenty on the road at this point it's really odd to me I don't understand it I think if you look at something like that that's got to be a leadership thing because there's no way you can have a team be that dominant at home and be that poor on the road so Ben Simmons gone yeah that that team I don't believe it's out of the first round they're going to be either the for five or six seed I would gas and I don't see him getting by a first round series without Ben Simmons John we appreciate the time very much have a great call this afternoon Caskey Celtics Lakers at the staples center three o'clock coverage begins thanks again okay thank you John berry ESPN NBA analyst and get a lot more coming up here in relation to this whole situation with the Sixers with Jo Ellan beat it with Ben Simmons and where that's all going to play out because in the Eastern Conference it's been all about Yanis all season long but last night when you lose Ben Simmons in a game like that that early it is a red flag to where they are headed but Jo Ellan beat have the interesting quote this week we'll get into that in just moments it is very date right here with Chris Carlin and amber Wilson on ESPN radio and ESPN app the end for the.

later this afternoon what matchup intrigues you the most here today well any time you have lebron James and these wings for the Boston Celtics you know gore Hey rich guy to me that's really been overlooked for this Celtic team obviously you want to talk about Jayson Tatum Kemba Walker the two all stars but Gordon Hayward's got his form back we remember the horrific injury obviously but before in Utah for a couple years this guy was an all star player a twenty four point four ease at eighteen points per game just because you're not gonna have three guys at all going up against lebron James I think we'll see a very hungry Laker team after getting a hundred thirty nine put on him and losing by thirty to their worst loss of the season I imagine we see a very spirited Laker group here this afternoon now I know Anthony Davis is half I I hear that he's expected to go anyway so I'm curious to know if you think it's going to slow him down at all and then also John is Anthony Davis allowing lebron to age gracefully or is the bronze is not a actually hitting that age decline yet like we thought maybe he was yeah I think a deal be fine at what he did was just a bruise that happen in the first half of the Memphis came he came back and had a incredible second half I think he had twenty four in the second half by it seven blocks in that game a look like a defensive of the player of the year candidate so they'll be no problem for Anthony this afternoon and yeah I I think it's a great luxury of for lebron that Anthony Davis is a guy they can go to a late in ballgames and and maybe a little less stress for lebron James but man he looks rejuvenated obviously didn't play in the playoffs last year I missed the last twenty or so ball game so he had extended period time off that he hasn't had a lot of years and it shows because the energies there I spying on both ends of the floor of the floor leading the league in assists at the age of thirty five would be the oldest this is the NBA's ever had he's been he's had a credible year but at the Davis obviously play with a guy like that makes the game a lot easier John berry ESPN NBA analyst has the Lakers and Celtics this afternoon here on ESPN radio couple of other things around the league the other occupants of the staples center haven't played particularly well lately what do you make of the clippers at the moment well I would venture to say that they haven't had over five practices as a full team and I know they haven't had five games with their full complement of so that that's a big deal I think if you just put the teams on paper I would pick the clippers I would take that roster but again with all the things that have gone on the injuries Paul George with the load management with Kawhi Leonard Beverly's missed time you add Marcus Morris now you add Reggie Jackson it's a team that they're gonna need three two to three weeks at least by the end of the season to get some camaraderie to get some familiarity with each other as they move in the playoffs you can't just stick a bunch of guys on the on the court without practice time without game time and think that you're gonna run through the Western Conference and get to an NBA championship so health is going to be big like I said those last couple weeks we need to see this clipper team in full if they're gonna make a run the playoffs sticking with some of the other story lines around the NBA Steph curry he's eyeing reportedly a March first return if you were the warriors would you bother bringing curry back well I don't know that it's up to the workers I I saw stuff minimum ten ten days ago two weeks ago and I said you coming back he goes yeah I'm bored and I said okay well if that's if you're bored you you've got to go play go play I don't know that is that big of a deal of obviously they don't really need to win at this point the better the draft pick the better the opportunity they have either make a trader get a better player obviously but yeah he just said he's bored he wants to play he loves to play and I don't think it's going to be a much heavy lifting because this team regardless of the SDF career not I'm not gonna win a lot of ball games John there's been a lot of concern around the Sixers this year and now Ben Simmons aggravated this back injury he suffered earlier in the week there seems to be according to Welch real concern on their part it would that in essence really do in the Sixers in the east for this year no question if Ben Simmons as a player they have no chance I would say even if he does play and they start on the road they have no chance at have you seen them on the road lately it's it's unbelievable to have this discrepancy I believe they have the best record at home they've only lost twice at home and I think there may be nine and twenty on the road at this point it's really odd to me I don't understand it I think if you look at something like that that's got to be a leadership thing because there's no way you can have a team be that dominant at home and be that poor on the road so Ben Simmons gone yeah that that team I don't believe it's out of the first round they're going to be either the for five or six seed I would gas and I don't see him getting by a first round series without Ben Simmons John we appreciate the time very much have a great call this afternoon you and test the Celtics Lakers at the staples center three o'clock coverage begins thanks again okay thank you John berry ESPN NBA analyst and got a lot more coming up here in relation to this whole situation with the Sixers with Jo Ellan beat it with Ben Simmons and where that's all going to play out because in the Eastern Conference it's been all about Yanis all season long but last night when you lose Ben Simmons in a game like that that early it is a red flag to where they are headed but Jo Ellan beat had the interesting quote this week we'll get into that in just moments it is game day right here.
