"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.

Let me just talking having a regular compensation gagged me me. Y'all come to see us compete. It's no competition. If we not six it was just a really illuminating kind of exchange tiffany because here's a nineteen year old rookie. Who understands that. The veteran right by his side has never been one that wants to engage in the public kind of mudslinging that jimmy butler let many players in the nba enjoy. Doing he always wants to stay above that. And anthony edwards understood. That and said i'm gonna make sure that squash this before it becomes a major thing and he did just that

"jimmy butler" Discussed on Open Floor: SI's NBA Show

"The the regular season restart and the scrimmages in all the buildup I think for casual fans who are maybe you know CNN NFL Games now seeing college football games on and then realizing the NBA is somehow still playing I think for them. It feels like I've been in here for a year and I can understand that too I mean the groundhog day element to this entire experience is something that will always stick with me. It's kind of reminds me of. Like being at summer, League towards the end and just how I mean for me personally. It's super depressing I've only been there on the last day. Once I think in my career, but it's so bleak when you think about like the start and how many more people were there and just different energies. So that's the only thing. I could really relate it to Kinda like that because I know you've been for the whole Shiben Vegas many times. Yeah. No doubt look. It definitely felt like that especially during game two, which is easily the flattest finals game I will ever attend in my entire life and nothing will be close to it. I mean that fell like preseason game like Summer League game felt like one of the. scrimmages where they are barely even keeping score. When we first got here to the bubble, it was such a strange and just like energy sucked out of the building type experience because of Miami's injuries and because of how easy l. a. was doing everything that wanted to do. So it certainly comparable to the end of the summer. League there I would say that you know the game three change the dynamic here a little bit right it puts some pressure on the Lakers. I think it's going to get some people locked back into the series. They're going to have to prove some stuff, but I also think that there's even a greater. Level of weariness and just people are exhausted mentally exhausted physically exhausted. Give you an example Tom like they're supposed to be a dinner in tonight that the NBA is organizing for us which always welcome news because the food here on a daily basis isn't really the best and so anytime we get a special dinner. It's.

"He's I, guess he's your second most important player easily in a landslide one of the best two players in the league. And you basically are just like we can't bring him back because of the years the money the fact that we made this really dumb trade for Tobias Harris and now we have to pay him. fact that we have a franchise point guard power forward whatever you WANNA call them who can't shoot and so he's thus needs the ball in his hands and is an awkward fit with everybody else in the league basically and you just kick Jimmy the curb and you exchange him for Josh Richardson you sign. Al Horford and this is where you are now so like. You kind of also look at the fact that Jimmy didn't get along with Brett Brown. So in a way, you also chose Brand Jimmy which share and I just don't you knew that if you knew the J. Brit, Bram is going to be a lame duck if you didn't win the championship or get to the finals anyway. So I just think that I, I would have it up to here if I was a sixers fan and I was watching Jimmy Butler dominate right now knowing that he was a clear difference maker for my own team the previous season. it's just it would be too much to swallow for me. Honestly, because Look Ben, Simmons is never having a forty point triple double in the NBA finals like a Tobias Harris has never having forty point triple double. In the NBA finals. These decisions are were ridiculous when they happened there more ridiculous now. and. That's gotta be painful. I'm trying to picture what the conditions would be for a Tobias Harris. Forty point triple double I'm wondering if it's like they let the kids you know the middle school kids play on the court at halftime lie maybe that the kids just stay on the court for the second half. To buy get a forty point triple double, the assist would still be hard for him. Honestly I think it'd be difficult for him to get. Tennessee's they're great points look it's definitely emblematic of their attire screwed up decision-making process over the last two or three years. What's strange is to me is that They got some evidence last year during the playoffs that Jimmy was going to be really helpful in the playoffs despite all the weird fits right? Like who was the guy who really trusted in last year's playoff run for Philly to be it was Jimmy One. Then a gap then embiid was really hit or miss it last year's playoffs right? Some really strange no-shows dizzy dealing with injury issues, sickness, all these other questions. So He's two and then Simmons is barely rating because you know who knows what he's doing in the playoffs, right so like you had evidence right there in front of you who who is the most important person now, you obviously have bigger long-term concerns. You've got the Egos you've got the marketing and the positioning and the personal dynamics where. Think. That group was like a little bit mentally tougher than the Minnesota Timberwolves but not that much mentally tougher right and you know Jimmy was the easy fall guy because he was so demanding and he was trying to pull them to a standard they didn't want to necessarily they didn't feel like they could go to as a group and you can include Brett Brown in that a-. As well, I mean, it's just again personality conflicts. Brett Brown is not as meek as Fred Hoiberg. But he's like halfway there. He's made Nice..

"A little bit, which was a very real thing and like seeing from his point of view in his explanation and basically which was I work exceptionally hard. I don't take anything for granted when I see people in this league who do not work as hard as me eight aggravates me and it's really hard to look at that and not like agree with where he's coming from right and so that's why you know systems and cultures and Fitz they're all so important and so for Jimmy to go to Miami where everybody else is working exceptionally hard and if you don't work hard, you don't play or you get traded. It just made so much sense for him, and so it's really cool to see him succeed. Now in a place where just you know it's just a match made in heaven so much about basketball is context related at this level, and so that's why I know we're going to rank these guys in a minute. But that's why ranking Jimmy is so difficult because. It's real hard to separate the situation. He's in from who he is as a player. If that makes any sense I think is a really great player. I think the situation and how he's handled, it just elevates him to a different level will yeah I mean especially this Paul George versus Jimmy Conversation The one thing you can say about Jimmy is that he squeezed every single ounce out of his potential and out of his gifts and he will never leave you feeling lake. Well, Paul George know didn't quite get over the hump this year is he ever going to get over the hump? Is He trustworthy? What you're getting with Jimmy and to me that's a real virtue and it's something that can sometimes get underrated relative to pure talent. Right? We Fall in love with pure talent and we think all guys a little bit longer. He's got a smoother jump shot. Smoother on the ball well, maybe he's Right, shoot three pointers. Yeah and shoot them well on all those things can kind of you know distract you a little bit but there is clearly as we saw last night a lot of value to doing Jimmy's way. Now we're also kind of judging him right now. At the very peak of his career, you always gotta be careful judging a guy based on his best areas worst day. But this was kind of like the clearest articulation of his value to double back on the whole. He needs the right work ethic he needs to write culture thing. I will play amateur psychologist here and just say that stuff is deeply rooted in his personality because of his childhood, his adoptive mother told me in two, thousand fifteen he developed this mentality as a high schooler essentially when he was homeless and Couch Surfing from place to place that, basically, he could not stop or slow down or life and you know expectations and responsibilities, and maybe his own behaviors would catch up with him. So it was in those formative years that he kind of. Like all gas no breaks mentality where just like you know he just felt like he had to stay one step ahead and he got into some trouble when he was in high school and if that family had not stepped in and adopted him, it was one of his high school teammates and and the family basically just let him live with them for a pretty extended period of time. Had He not had that there? Are some very clear alternate histories here where we have no idea, Jimmy Butler is right and his relationships with both parents were Kinda strained at that point of his life.

"This is something that we talked about after game. One. last night. What was so amazing to me was. that's exactly what Jimmy Butler did in the fourth quarter basically every touch that he had A. Lebron guarding him and they brought up either tyler hero or Dunkin Robinson Kendrick Nunn when he was on the floor and and Jae crowder two screens for Jimmy to get the right match up and it was completely out of out of the norm for how the Miami? Heat? Their Egalitarian fence normally operates even in crunch time where Jimmy doesn't take over like that usually it's just not who he is. So to see Jimmy, kind of transform into Lebron with the season on the line, their backs against the wall and succeed. The way he did was it was awesome. It was just really cool to watch and you just can't help but be so pumped for Jimmy Butler right now. Well, let me ask you this I. Mean You come on here all the time preaching the gospel of Erik Spoelstra and I know you love Fan. Are Do. You consider yourself like a Jimmy Butler guy. He's a player who I first profiled at two, thousand, Fifteen I. Think it was his first cover story was my first cover story at sports illustrated I. Really enjoy the process of. Him Back then he was just getting his first taste of success and fame. It was his breakout most improved player season. He was Kinda getting in the all mix. He knew he had a big contract waiting form in the summer. He had famously said he was going to bet on himself and and basically double what the Bulls were kind of offering him with with the course of the play that season and you know dice change once. Their famous it just always happens You know, of course, his career when a lot of different directions in the ensuing five years. But there is a ruthless competitor. You know there there's a guy who's been through a lot of childhood trauma who I think where's it all of his relationships I think there's a guy who's finally found a home in Miami that feels like it will be a long-term fit after a long time of searching for it. And it's a player who you know. I'm not sure we would ever consider to be an all time great like he's not GonNa get into that conversation but here he is having a very memorable postseason run knocking off. The. Milwaukee Bucks. You know taking care of the Boston Celtics, multiple teams that you would probably say were were favored in those series and doing it his way. Right and you know is it going to lead to a title probably not is going to lead to probably the deepest satisfaction of his career I imagined. So and I'm just curious are you a Jimmy Guy Do you do you view it like that or have you always? Have you at all like bought into the Anti Jimmy Voices and there are many who say come on this guy's a malcontent. He doesn't play Nice with others he doesn't. Know he'll bully his teammates. He doesn't make everyone better. You know he's trying to kind of guilt trip people into acting a certain way. He's too macho of an Alpha and all that stuff. I mean this has been a polarizing figure in the NBA and right now it's like Kinda his moment his validating moment, right?.

"The quick ticky tack calls, and then as soon as he gets back in after getting to in the first quarter, he gets the third pretty quickly as soon as the third quarter starts, he gets his fourth pretty quickly and he's looking around like is there nothing I can do on the court without somebody you know calling these vows on. Me Is that what you attribute his poor game too or was there anything else going on because if we just rewind back to game too I, think most people would have started to agree with you. He's looking like the leader for Finals Mvp he's completely unstoppable they don't have Bam coming back for game three You know who's GonNa be the match up I mean they don't wind up being that Scott Foster was just too tough match-up for Anthony did. I do think that the foul trouble certainly bothered him certainly took him out of his rhythm that's not really I don't want to excuse the game from him I. Mean it was it was a bad game Anthony Davis and you kind of contrast it with game two and just earlier performances in this series where you know he's he's like the guy locking down Jimmy Butler is the primary defensive assignment. He's the guy just absolutely a racing every opportunity in the paint he's the guy who's tip dunking every single laker miss like so I think that There are ways for you to impact the game physically even if you're not involved on in the offensive game plan, which he wasn't down the stretch, which is not necessarily his fault, but he was not the same force on the glass that he's been he wasn't the same force just like basically setting screens like he just was kind of roaming around on both ends really petrified. I thought to pick up that fifth and that six vowel and I thought that the the entire Lakers team was sensitive to his foul trouble as well and you just look it's kind of late when. There was one play in the fourth quarter where ad actually switched onto Jimmy Butler and it was.

"Guess I would put it that way. Well real quickly Josh Richardson comes from Miami Right and goes to Philly and right after the season ends, he says, Brett Brown does not hold players accountable. So what does that tell you? Right. Well, he's also used to Spoelstra so. That is that's a different standard. It just tells you that Miami plays by what set of rules I mean. There are measuring guys body fat and like you know they're they're running guys into the ground. It's certainly different in Miami but Yeah there's no question you know just culture. Wise. You know Philly has been not good enough these last couple of years, and again, you're supposed to have some high level decision maker. Analyzing the talent analyzed performance in the big moments saying look if we want this thing to really go, there's one person who we can trust here and it's definitely not Tobias Harris and somehow they they came out of that one. Backwards all right. Let's do one final Jimmy Butler, ranking before we move on here. When you're looking at the other forwards and wings around the League where do you have Jimmy at this point in terms of your rankings and who's who's definitely above him, and then who's in that same tier maybe SM and like if you're drafting where does he fall? Yeah. So I mean hinted at this before and I can't remember if we talked about it on an earlier episode or not but I just think that what makes Jimmy? So fascinating is he kind of defies the player rankings. He makes them more dumb than they normally are I made my name on the campaign now. I Apologize. Apologize Your top one hundred hold a special place in my heart and intelligent. But flawless is what people would usually say I wouldn't go that far. You know. I think that there are guys who are clearly better than them at his position who I don't think could've done what he did in the specific situation in Miami like I think Kevin Durant is better. I think. Leonard is better. I. Think Lebron. James's better. But do all of those guys let Kendrick Nunn lead the Miami Heat and shots during the regular season knowing it's probably best for the team or let Bam at a bio in his first season as a starter fulltime starter bring the ball up the court and and initiate offense from the elbow does does Katie and Lebron. They let tyler hero run pick and rolls and take shots that no rookie should ever attempt and encourage it So I I just think it's really difficult to, and this is with all you know contextual player ratings and rankings and how we kind of view all this stuff. But I just think Jimmy is such a special situation and this is such a special case. Because if you ask me, I would say. You know. If, I'm trying to pick a player to start a team. He's probably like he's somewhere in the top twelve, but he's behind a certain set of players that you know he's like kind of a second tier. He's not a superstar in my eyes. So yeah, you're hitting on a lot of the top one, hundred dilemmas that we face..

"Chris Paul they have this brilliant front office that engineers that trade that continuously is ahead of the curve with analytics and and keeping cutting edge meant cutting edge mentality organization like the Bulls just weren't that the Bulls aren't the heat either like I'll see that the heat might be the Eastern Conference version of what the Houston Rockets were at that time period but. The Bulls just could have never done it which is why I can't put them where I can't put them in terms of the pain that the fan base should should feel comparatively to the Philadelphia Seventy sixers. Fans will look if you have a superstar level player in the thing with with Jimmy is like from a you know a real plus minus standpoint like he's pretty consistently top five top ten type impact guy, right. So if you have that level of a performer and you identify early that this guy is special and you resist temptation to be the most backward thinking front office this side of New, York And you and you start like making sound decisions or if your ownership and you deeply understand the game and you realize exactly what you've unearthed. And they were just backwards on the Jimmy experienced the whole time they didn't properly value him going into his first you know extension negotiations they paid the price for that I think they probably ruffled feathers a little bit. You know through that entire process making you kind of you know go out there and and earn his deal quote unquote in that breakout season, and then you know on top of it like if you are going to trade them, you've got to do better than freaking sack. Levin I mean so I just think there's an alternate universe that. They recognize what they have around. Jimmy. Their Front Office is actually baseline competent, and because of the lower standards in the eastern conference, they can consistently be like a top four, top five team and winsome series in advance a little bit. That's not asking that much in the Eastern Conference, right? It's just Be. A little bit better than the Indiana Pacers when you have a talent like Jimmy Butler, you could have done that every year and they just blew it anyway we we've yelled about the balls enough. Tell me why sixers for you are the the most painful team to watch it is it just the proximity of they had them last year and now they don't. The. sixers. Were a title contender last year. Jimmy. Butler was a humongous reason why they were title contender and one shied away from advancing to the conference finals where they could have beat the Milwaukee Bucks and then Won The championship because the Golden. State. Warriors evaporated So you get rid of this guy who's closing games for you. he's made. Your second, most important player easily in a landslide.

There are some very clear alternate histories here where we have no idea Jimmy Butler is right and his relationships with both parents were Kinda strained at that point of his life I.

It's clearly still awesome and he holds. Very. Dear but. At the same time when you're going through that kind of a lifestyle where you're. Living Hand to mouth a lot of times. He didn't know he was going to have lunch. You know he's almost like practically asking people can we can I share your bag of chips or something like that you know in high school I mean some really traumatic moments there. I think it also leads to a lack of trust obviously right and I think it also leads the potential for emotional outbursts because when you're constantly living kind of paranoid or fearful lifestyle, you don't have a level of stability and you don't the people who you're supposed to be able to trust aren't there for you. That warps your personality basically forever, and so you can see a lot of times when he gets into situations with authority figures he either. Bonds with them because you know he is able to kind of get over it, and then it's like the deepest trust you could ever possibly imagine I think his his college coach Buzz. Williams.

"I. Want to explain a little bit for people who may not remember this. Why this was such a satisfying win for. Jimmy. Butler little background historical context. If you go back to two thousand thirteen. Jimmy is basically a twenty, three year old defensive stop or something round series between the Chicago Bulls and the Miami Heat and Jimmy's job is to run around the court. He played all forty eight minutes did not sit for a single second under coach Tom Thibodeau in three of those five games over the course of a ten day span Michael and he'd. Chased Lebron around and chased Lebron around and ultimately the heat prevailed they went onto win the title that year Lebron was the finals MVP two years later, Jimmy still you know kind of bang away at the drum in Chicago there's been some injuries with Derrick rose and all that stuff they get into a second round series and Lebron's Cleveland now. The heavy underdog in that series goes up to one with a miraculous buzzer beater by derrick rose three pointer out of nowhere the cavaliers at that moment were dealing with all sorts of injury issues. They looked super vulnerable. You get to a very tense game for you might remember this David Black Cavaliers coach wanders onto the courts trying to call timeout. The referees don't see it. He's trying to design a final play where Lebron's going inbound Lebron says sorry David Blatt to get you fired in nine months, and by the way we're definitely not going to run that play. Here's my. Play inbound the ball to me if you go back and watch the buzzer beater that Lebron hits in game four to even that series he kinda shoves off of Jimmy Butler gets himself open and drains that shot right in Jimmy's face any does it at the United Center crowd silencing, the entire crowd. Now, the cavaliers then went on to win games five and six to finish off that series basically snuffing out another hope for the the bullets to advance and Jimmy only winds one playoff series combined in the next four years after that, and he also lost the first two games. Of this final series. So after that Lebron, buzzer beater Jimmy had lost five straight head-to-head playoff games against Lebron in addition to having already previously lost the two playoff series that they had been matched up and so this is not like Lebron versus Katie or like Lebron versus staff or Lebron versus Kawhi Leonard type rivalry, but if you're on the wrong Side of Lebron throughout the course of your career and you go like five straight years without a chance to like get back at them you have to realize how sweet this particular victory was for other because it was clearly the game of his life, they needed the game of his life to be able to get over a team that was clearly favored. I'm sure you saw that stout bouncing around that Jimmy's the first player to record more points, rebounds, and assists in the same game I think in the playoffs compared to Lebron that's a ridiculous accomplishment..

"Which was kind of my main takeaway and. I I mean I thought overall. Okay. She played pretty good on on defense for what they had. They really door I mean tears Ferguson cooked by James Harden. And he was providing them nothing on offense venue to threes but really he's just kinda out there not to like Polish easy young player. He's not there yet but yeah, I mean Chris Paul had a decent game but Hughes even he was struggling with the switching in the half more up as was shake this, Alexander? and. Actually, Dennis Schreuder played probably the best defense on Hardin that any is the any bows. My biggest depends take away their trending towards eligible Schroeder should be guarding hard. He did really. Well, I agree I will put Schroeder out there in find somebody else to play instead of Ferguson because Ferguson was borderline unplayable yesterday. While then if they play shorter, I, think they just have to kind of start at five men and I think that's doable when they're when you're playing against Houston's starting lineup and I do I'm not okay I'm. Take this lightly take take this lightly I think if we get another game like this where Stephen, Adams and gallon our struggle in the front court, do you think we could see Darius Bazeley? Get more run potentially as a starter because he's the one guy in the bubble exactly. He was really getting the bubble. He played well last night to keep more really well Yeah I mean he's he's shooting better is athletic enough that I think you could hang on there maybe place a you could maybe keep gallon are it for five I'm not saying Get minutes like that's not all on. I'm trying to say that it's not like he's getting played off the court, but I think is just for the style of play that okay she is playing. I mean that Houston's playing right now they might need to shift down smaller in order to do something on defense because they're gonNA kill the corners yesterday like if they have I mean Stephen Adams. Decently mobile for a big in a Gal's kind of not that mobile for four I mean they were really struggling getting out to shooters yesterday love twenty, three corner threes, which eventually that's going to get you with math that we saw happen with the box in the. Games. I mean use only went ten twenty thirty points right there. So that, you gotTa have guys were fast enough to get out shooters or maybe run your defense differently. But I think that's something automatically that I will be thinking about with yet. Yeah. He would definitely help what their athleticism Pennsylvania's Gallo. Gallo is extremely mobile. Stephen Adams is a great rammed sector but provides next the on the remainder so I'm also. Considering starting a piece on Thursdays..

"They weren't hedging it all they need to hedge if Damian Lillard is impeccable because if he has like two inches of space, he's watching it and it's going Kirk Goals Barry prove a staff today Damian. Lillard. Is Shooting, forty, one percent. From from the logo, but I'm not even getting? On the front on the season that's like one hundred and forty attempts.

But right now he is and you have to treat them out such. Yeah. I fully agree with that. So Do you have anything else went out on this game. On. Nothing else other than Casey P with the one one one stat line. That's what finish with. He's one point one event one, assist I believe here's all for nine and five.

Yeah. He didn't have to move outside five feet looks great. But no, he wasn't chasing anything. He actually boxed out for the most part US played like. He used to play in Miami before he decided not like anymore. So I was cool. But I think one thing just like my final kinda takeaway. I really think frank is going to have to play dion waiters. In maybe a little bit of Taylor Morton soccer is if you can get something going shooting. Wise. But I mean I'm not I don't know if you saw Kendrick Perkins going off on twitter and being really annoying as usual. He said a muted account said that Frank Vogel has to play Jr. Smith. About that one Shooting it could. Jr. Smith Shot below twenty percent in the seating games..

"I'm. Okay I don't understand that with with Boston fans I. Think wanamaker's like pretty good i. know he's not. He's an easy target. He's not a great shooter and he's not like he's a guy who will take that back lead the NBA before percentage. Oh, he's a good free throw shooter ninety, three percent big. Yeah I mean he's built like a four but plays the one. That's the he's a six foot two point guard. Like I don't know. I mean he him in grant. Williams, look like they could be brothers because of their belt but no I think he's a good player. It's like if he's your ninth man, I think people would be really happy. But it's just that he's like the seventh man that police a six man now. Yeah. We'll see man it'll be interesting on definitely some into keep our eyes on moving ahead. But just quickly dog how. So it's four weeks I believe what they said. So that'll be eastern conference finals is when earliest return with an ankle sprain does a tiny. Tiny chance that the Toronto sewage want six or seven he come back but then we also have the birth of his son coming right around that time and it would just would suck if he is cleared for Game Warner Lake using crops, finals I mean I don't WanNa go that far ahead. But if that happened and then he has to leave cookery four games. On it. Good for him. Obviously he's been one son reliable, but the time line would just. Yeah Yeah. No, it's tough man. It's a it's really lately. It's it's funny because I actually I remember listening to the podcast and also talk some about how normally NBA players scheduled to have kids in the summer. They can land around not playing the play offs and that's totally thrown things out of whack with this year. Somewhat breaking news that just came out I mean it's not really a huge Lebanon. Pretty cool that. Shams just tweeted that the NBA has informed teams. They're no longer allowed to report injuries in general terms such as conditioning, reconditioning soreness, and not telling them. They must use specific reason slash body part..

"But if flat goes good is his team for a while. Let's take a break coming up. What can the Sixers do about guarding to why the same as you would mean? That's what they nothing if feels like the blazers last plate, I don't know a couple of weeks ago. Should they be favored when they take the court against the nuggets tonight. I've waited for that is that tonight. That's an I is that on television everywhere in the United States of America in the UP. Wait. It's male time. You send the issues we rewrite them into questions. We actually want to answer. I'm gonna be them. Here's the the SCO. What should the Sixers do about guarding Kawai? Put Jimmy Butler on them. And I'm not saying that that's going to result in four wins. But Jimmy Butler has successfully been in the business of trying to guard LeBron James had as much success. Nobody's had a ton. Lebron James but Jimmy Butler's record against LeBron. And all these years like eight years, plus is almost five hundred right around five hundred you gotta put him on Kawai. I don't care if he was five for six yesterday against Jimmy Butler. He might miss five of the next six. Jimmy Butler is your answer. You cannot let Kawai just go off. And you also can't just double them and turn them into a playmaker. You got a guy Jimmy Butler who's going to be a free agent using now while you got him, and he can do more effectively this task than anybody. This is a fantastic answer by you, the actual answer. Is you can't do anything about Kawhi Leonard? 'cause he's better than everybody else on either team. That is a stab fact Jimmy Butler, you say I don't care if was five of six against them. Will you gotta care if he's fine against. Oh, you know by Paris. Ben Simmons can guard him nobody can guard just give up and go home and go on time. Ring and Kawhi Leonard was a finals MVP in the fatter matter is that that you can't guard everybody else better and don't worry about him so much. Guys are all stars to the nuggets of the higher seed, but do you favor them over the blazers Sony? This is tough. I would not have a week ago. I'll before it is cancer suffered a or at least a partially separated shoulder out of taking the blazers even without nurses. I would've taken them because cancer has been a really suitable replacement played much defense can score. He can rebound in traffic. He can do those things. But now the is hurt. I mean heart the strength of the nuggets. I mean, the best player they have is Yokich. And now you have to go up against him with no bigs. What are you gonna bring in Bill Walton for a few minutes in Portland? So I think I have to go with Denver. I think I have to this series is being played in the land of the time. Forgot nobody cares about this series the seer. Yeah. You care. This is the series. That's going to be on. Tru TV it is dead fourth in the four series that are out there. Now, everything. Starts late. I'm sure Damian Lillard was a great guy. I'm sure no kitchens. Yo fish. I'm sure he's good to the bowl. And it's an old buddy cares about this one. I know let's NFL draft today. Nobody cares about to wanna do or this. Do you think Josh Rosen feels magnanimous as he appears in his farewell video? I don't know. 'cause I don't know. Josh rosen. His farewell video he thanked everybody. I mean, he said all the right stuff. He said it's in sear..

"I'm sure you've been monitoring Jimmy Butler, and he's one guy that maybe doesn't want to be playing that much longer. And there's a report out see that baller would walk away from basketball at thirty five years old or or in his career thirty four and therefore would only have five years left. So I don't know. It's just this this situation in Philadelphia. And really the Jimmy Butler scenario or saga gets stranger by the day. It seems what is your latest sense of that because it is very dysfunctional that he's only been there, you know, less than a couple of months, and we're already having these types of issues, I think Jimmy just is very outspoken. He's he's always been authentic. He's always been himself. And he says what he thinks I think that in in this particular circumstances situation, if you're twenty nine years old, and you're seeking a five year deal. I don't know if I would necessarily share with everyone that I plan on retiring at thirty four or before thirty four, but you're also talking about a guy who's Austalian caliber all in BA, potentially a first team defender every season hits shots has been known to have legendary workout five six AM while he's traveling the world in joint life. I mean, he's a really good player. It's just about the negative connotations that have surrounded places. He's been I don't know if that's necessarily his fault or. Or he's just in the wrong place at the wrong time. But the fact that just been a lot of negative Clough in certain areas that he's been obviously the Sixers situation with trying to carve out a larger role in the offense. According to Welsh and some of the reports that were leaked these past few weeks. It's just about figuring out the situation like whose F all here. I is this a Antonio Brown situation where this history of being late to meetings and things like that. I don't think so I think this is more. So akeso of him just being outspoken wanting to have a larger role in the offense and also being authentic. You know, as as casual fans a lot of times, we won't players to be real. We don't want cliche answers. We want them to really be themselves. But then when players are themselves players are real employers are authentic when they're cocky and not humble when they are boastful people say, oh, he should be shouldn't be like that. Or he shouldn't answer questions that way. But it's like what do you want? You want the athlete to be honest and genuine or do you want him to give you? Team effort, blah, blah, blah, those types of answers. So I think it's it's a slippery slope. Man, we want we want to understand players and no players, but they went players act like themselves. We question in their integrity. Yeah. And I think it's it's kinda messed up. See I think Jimmy Butler is you know, he has this endless tank of gas. He goes a really hard. He is a clutch player. He's the kind of guy you'd want on your team because he's not afraid of the big moment. In fact, he embraces it. But you know, you start to worry about issues that he's had now obviously in Chicago there were there were significant turmoil, and obviously gar Forman and John Paxson of their own issues. So maybe you excuse it. Then he goes to Minnesota, and apparently isn't happy with Karl Anthony towns or under Wiggins, and you know, Tom tiptoe and now he's in Philadelphia. And I know that they've had their issues. But since he's been there, you think about stability. I mean, elm brand is very well respected around the league Brett Brown. You can criticize. I some of his Xs and os. But he's well liked for the most part by players. I think and then you know, he should be able to Jimmy Butler in theory acquiesce to a degree to Simmons an NBA while also asserting himself, but he was already having problems less than two months in to his tenure in Philadelphia. That's a concern. And it's a even bigger concern considering he says he might retire at thirty five years old, which is in five years. Yeah..
