A Bold Eastern Conference Prediction for 2021
"Right. Okay, let's go to the East and I Toronto have they fallen out of your thing. Now. This is not a check it out. It's all depend on you mad though. They hate monkeys. I'm going to give it to Brooklyn. Number one, right number two. I think Milwaukee close to a similar winning percentage. We saw last year's. The number to write you know, but 3 I'm going to go Miami Miami was fifth last year people forget. So that's a big Improvement to go from victim. I just I'm I don't know. How long would you know about that even Bradley. I think that's a good addition bamas help games healthy. I think he maybe he makes another stride Tyler hero, I think makes another stride Off the Bench Duncan Robinson. I like those guys. Okay, I like those guys are gonna put me on and then you got Jimmy Butler. Who's there? Jimmy Butler still Jimmy, but then you lose Jae Crowder you lose trying to but I like I like Bradley with those shooters that I just mentioned or those scores because he's going to get so many open shots your next until I hear all your next to Duncan Robinson. You can't leave them open. Anyway behind that heart all the money in the world and you got Defenders on the other end. That'll just say like, okay, so all right. That's three four. I'm going Philly Celtics fan. I can't put Boston over Philly. I can't I see. Okay. You got your birth. No, Seth Curry, Danny Green who will defend his ass off on the other end. And then you got it back up for Joel and B-Max Dwight Howard show that he can be serviceable a second Main Service back, but not until you tell me what Simmons is going to do and how he's going to play. I can't I can't buy into that. You're the one who took back is going to make him shoot on that Rhonda Rhonda back is going to make him shoot and we just watch the exhibition game with him. And when he did he's going to marry me pull-up three-pointers. I think one he wasn't even here's the thing about it wasn't even involved in the office because social media will explode the moment. I mean for about 319 about my thing again with filling if I'm feeling I make that move but I think that's what I think that's what hard would be best suited and they you let Simmons Jersey And I think Joel embiid and hardened together. That's a better tandem angry much better time. I don't think I don't think there's another team in the Eastern Conference. That would benefit more than Philly. I just think again to my point the shooters thing which would be more sugar than he had in Houston. If you really think about it, Danny Green Seth Curry. Okay, Ronda Shooters, you got your well and be Turkish bath every once you can bang down low we can defend on the other end. I mean, they're good team here the window what that if if they can find that one piece and that to me that's going to be the key off. They do art and you're saying you say those four right now. What were y'all before? I just Boston here we go. Here we go. Boss is five six. And they're going to be right there to his Toronto Oakland agree. That far behind you sleep on Toronto 7. I'm going to put Indiana and all the depot is the biggest question Market, you know, he's he can talk to you far but I haven't seen them be the same old people since the injury when that dude was a bad man dropping 35, like it was nobody's business. That was all the people I was like man look out. He didn't gave something when we get Kyrie 38 onetime 38 people. Can I read but yeah, so that's a big question mark, but I'll put them in seven eight the last spot. I'm going to put I'm a while maybe now I'm glad they ready Atlanta is going to be maybe praying that could be really really

The Winners and Losers of ESPN's Top 100 NBA Player Rankings
"Loves lists are fun to debate ESPN came out with one of theirs loves to hate lists, but go on they love to hate him. Yes why I used to hate him cuz you're usually very wrong or cuz everyone's got their own lists. Like everyone had the same listed will be everyone hates. Everyone hates lists yet. They love them because you can debate them endlessly and ESPN sent out. Its top 100 list up until Player 11 and Jayson Tatum is the last one on the list. So he didn't crack the top ten. Well up to 11 is quite an accomplishment for him. Kemba Walker all the way down to 48 Marcus Smart jumps from 87 years. Thirty-seven on this list Jaylen Brown goes up from 51 to 32 Jayson Tatum. Also a big leap up to 11:00 and again lists our lists and we're not holding this as holy gospel, but we still am kind of talk about it because it is interesting and they're fun to debate our friend Gordon Hayward comes in at 44. So Marcus Smart is better than Gordon Hayward apparently in ESPN's eyes who is slightly better than Kemba Walker who's been slightly diminished because of his knees and his uncertainty. So we'll see what's happening there. But guys your initial thoughts on this list. Mine is obviously smart way too high and Jaylen be a little bit low. Yeah, and if you compare to last year, you know, I was top-heavy with the town in terms of your percentage of the League's top twenty five guys. I did a top-25 myself. I did my own last game of the regular season last year and I had four Celtics in the top thirty. So that's different. Now, you know kind of takes a dip shocking it takes a dip with the or something off the top 20. I almost addicted when when John was talking about how much he hates list because I'm kind of with him on that but nothing nothing. Nobody list that I hate more is a preseason list and then Bob to say that you have a post like what NBA Finals list, that's probably the second worst one between capital mean anything it was between the regular season and the playoffs and you're right the list off completely by the end of the postseason that you took time. Okay. Hey out of your life. Hey, we gotta check the content here. How long a couple of months? No, you suck. Changes it rapidly after the whole Jimmy Butler situation that we saw in the playoffs and I think that's an interesting thing about this list to definitely considering playoff runs quite a bit. I mean Jamal Murray gets into the top twenty thousand that's playoff performance right there. You talk about some of the other guys biggest surprise Zion nineteen like the Scion hype continues. What was he played Thirty games? Does Chicago Fire? Wow, I don't think there's eighteen guys in the league. I want in front of him. I'll tell you that if it's know what they'll list is it's not that they do these jobs. It does project. It does project out a little bit in terms of you know, kind of entering the season. So I think the 30 games you played is less of an issue. I do again want to talk about the Celtics here. All right, you know one by one cuz again, it doesn't matter where they are on a list but relative to their expectations for the year. It is important. Okay, because yep need if Marcus Smart is a is the is a tough 37 player in the NBA then that's a that's a trio that you can feel pretty good about I debate whether that's actually true I don't understand how long this went from 80s again it's a list we know it's not possible but how does from 87 to 37 in a year when it's offensive metrics went down in terms of efficiency his three-point shooting got worse his to point his overall field goal percentage was 34 I mean he was not again we know he can distribute we know how to feed other things offensively to make up for that but this is a guy who you are now you're now we are now asking a 34% field-goal shooter to shoot more and that's important to the team's success issue that worries me a little bit yeah I mean that's the part of the lift that thing is out the most right obviously because the market smart and there's two reasons one because of what we saw in the postseason he didn't have a great postseason his special In the Eastern Conference Finals, so that stands out to you as okay. Well, how did he get high on this list? The reason I think it got high on this list because just like everyone else is saying and what we've been talking about you don't take on a big role because of Kevin Walker Because of You Know the Way Gordon Hayward let and now this is huge void. He's going to take up a huge step in and I think he is p.m. Which of course this is why I hate these preseason the list because they're they're either getting wait till end of themselves down sizing, you know, it's either one of the other and with this one. I think they maybe just saying that they may be value mean Marcus Smart a little more than we do. I guess I guess the best way to put it I don't know. I don't think I would put them that off the list but I see why they did that because they know that his responsibility is going to expand ridiculously the next couple of months,
Nikki Bella Sends Ex John Cena Belated Wedding Congrats
"This is daily and we have so much gossip to discuss. We are talking about the star. Who loves being naked and white halle berry is defending her skills in the bedroom. I nikki bella was just on the spot about her ex. john seen it. So on the all things being pumped podcasts. Nikki was asked if she congratulated john his wedding. Well here's what she had said. I haven't But yeah. I didn't say might supposed to show sundays to you. Could just say now john. I congratulate you on your wedding. It's they're documented. Yeah so john. Congratulations on your wedding. I'm very very happy three. Oh i really don't think you have to congratulate an ex when they get married. Don't you know. I mean. And if i do i wait like a year later mike. Oh we just we that you got research we know he. He was pregnant this morning. Well yes but this is pregnant with twins. But this is. I didn't congratulate on the first kid is the second round and realize you have three kids so interesting. I'm surprised that she didn't congratulate him on his wedding when he called her to congratulate her on having. The baby isn't like your normal reflex to be like that. And congratulations to what's going on in your life to john. I also think that you know. Just that i think you have a point. I think also because of the fact that he was genuinely probably really happy for nikki because she got everything that she wanted out of somebody that he would not give to her after so many years of her trying so i think there's less resentment on his end probably for her. She's really happy she has a new baby. She's with man she's supposed to be with but it's still unsure kind of triggers. Her instincts her a little bit when she's like well. Thanks mother effort but like you didn't do shit like i was waiting for six years. You didn't do anything that you were supposed to do and said you would do. Yeah i mean. I don't think that. I think that that's plenty. Especially whenever they both like you know moved on at felt like it was very fast. He their breakup seemed like a long time coming because they kind of accepted it but they both moved on kind of fast. And i think whenever it happens kind of fast like that. It's too fresh like you're like nah not happy for you yet. Give me some time to like. Get over everything that i still hold against you. And then maybe i'll be happy for you. Look let me give you some crying on the floor. Little advice for some going through something. Similar what i went through something like this for me. Saying congratulations to x. Who had moved on got married was kinda therapeutic because it kind of finalizes and it kinda close that chapter in your life. That relationship is not only not only over. But it's not coming back around for you right so then you can emotionally finally move on because no matter how happy you are you new relationship. No matter how happy you seem to be on social you still holding a flame for that person. You still want them person to want you back yeah. I don't know if it's a claim but that for sure one hundred percent. You're like i still expect that you're probably crying over me right. It's been twelve years but you're probably still upset about me really fast. Listrik thing it you still hold a flame over your ex is still want them to be like how you do it. It's not like crying on the floor. Just know that you think that's true. Okay that's all i need. Yeah that's all you guys done that though degray syntax ex when they have big moments oh god no because i don't think there's been any big moments yet. I i do think that once you've been with somebody for over four years it really becomes like it's it's just a bulbs into something more than just a romantic relationship. This is just a human being that you spent a lot of time with respect that point in your life that you had together you do like them as a person unless the person really did something you just wrong you and the and the damage irrevocable at some point you just sort of fade into. I really do want this person to do well. I did invest in this person and want us to be able to be cordial and nice. And i think that most people get there just in you got there. You were the bigger person in your last relationship you were. You definitely had your. There was some trauma there real quickly and said your piece one hundred percent but i never want my people be like. Oh yeah my ex is doing great. I want people to be like daniel man. That's what i'm looking guy. He's hanging out with data. That makes you feel bad though is bad as me. You're here he's got it all together. You are just same as me but let me tell you something i. The universe has put me in some uncomfortable situations where i'm not only running into my ex. I run into my ex. And his new boo right. So that's a little bit more difficult. What's hollywood is really small. But i truly adam. I am more like you as much as i like to say no. I am more of a happy that you're happy even though it's not as happy as you were with me but that's not just details details all right.

"You both my friend. Coming up. Bracing D Shambo won the US Open Golf Tournament this weekend in stunning fashion. But I wanNA talk about the one player who's GonNa stick with me. For a long.
"jimmy butler" Discussed on ESPN Daily
"He is, and they were one of the only teens that looked at almost the talent I and worried about the narrative after. So, dwayne. Wade is. A sleeper agent for Pat Riley is what you've outlined here. He's a sleeper agent he is. Converting Jimmy Butler too as we now know it Hashtag heat culture. So When D. Wade says this guy is like us. This guy is a heat player. What does that mean? Really What it means is that you are concerned most. Importantly on your work day in and day out. And I'll tell you a quick story that that underscores the for me. I was working on a story wrote about Jimmy in February, and I was talking Dunkin Robinson and I said, how did you know that everything? Was GonNa Click in a way it has he's like I knew early I was like what happened And he goes we had the younger guys working out at the facility in Miami. At like six am every day. This is in September. Jimmy found out about it. He walks in gym. At like five. And he's been working out for an hour. So here comes Duncan Robinson some of these younger guys and their turnaround looking on the floor and. Robinson said the Jimmy looked over and just gotTA. Give him a nod. Like, Hey, what's up? What's going on? So it was kind of like for Jimmy it was love at first sight culturally in just kind of morphed into more from their bobble unite both know there are plenty of people who chuckle and they roll their eyes when you hear he culture but I think it's been drilled into everybody. In Jimmy, is kind of at the top of the chain down there saying, it doesn't matter. It doesn't matter what we do. We just have to play the game. The Right Way and we have to do. What's bolster tells us to do in that trust level between Jimmy and full Stra and between Spoelstra and the rest of that group in that coaching staff is just gigantic. About an organization that. You have to work in owners five here in everybody's built like that here from the Coast Pat Spo- all of our guys had me like that. That's what I need. That's what I've always been. So I guess it is a great fit. So here we find ourselves nick after all these years after all this trajectory that you've traced for us. We find ourselves maybe at an inflection point in this series We just saw. Erik Spoelstra and Jimmy Butler may be experiencing some tension. Jimmy perhaps being unhappy and the doubters. Would certainly point to that and say that's the Jimmy. Butler I remember and when we talk about heat culture and the drilling of it as you put it. It seems like Jimmy Butler. Is the drill he is the guy who cares more than about anyone else. We can imagine that might be greatest superpower, and so it can help build places up the drill can be a tool for good. and. It could also be a tool to destroy things. How do you think the story ends with Jimmy and is marriage in Miami? I actually actually think it's going to end well. In Pablo of you'd asked me this question a year ago. It's in Hell. I actually. I texted him a few weeks ago. And I told him like I I just WanNa tell you after all these years. This is the happiest I've seen. This is the happiest that I can remember him from a basketball perspective. Being. In. What noses that? No matter what happens here in the next few weeks. It's all going to be okay because he's finally found the right. Place the matches, his personality. I love it. It's my outlet. Whether I'm playing with fifty year olds at the local YMCA. Or dragging my homeboys and one whatever we may be. I. Just I have to play basketball. Is. Not Who I am, but is what I love to do like legit love the game. Miami needed Jimmy. And Jimmy needed Miami. In Pablo I would argue that there is not another team another organization in the League that could have gotten the most out of Jimmy. The way the heat has gotten the most out of Jim. Do you feel like this going to. Be. Here this is this is it for me? Day is always my. I'm.
NBA Trade Deadline
"Yeah. Mine is twenty two hours to the deadline for trade. Everybody's moving further away from the product of the bench and the Sixers got themselves a five and the rafters might have Kyle Lowry situation. Also feast your eyes on the us new putter twenty four year old promotes drill. Yup. Let go. Best holders twenty four his by. Get all that tad or older than his TV. Let's start with Tobias Harris to Philadelphia. Sixers get it near all star LSD. It's two picks said Landry Wilson and a Mike. We haven't Israel with us is this a figure deal for the Sixers or clippers. Well, because the question demands an answer I'll say the Sixers, but if you look at the clippers situation, obviously with getting a lot of free agents of cap space here available and if they end up not making the playoffs get to hold onto that twenty nineteen draft pick of theirs. It's obviously for the future. But for the Sixers it's right now. And this is exactly what teams that are close want. Their teams to do you go all in and Elton brand clearly did that with Jimmy Butler trade. And now this one I still question whether they can be the obvious top team in the east you want you have more town than that starting five, but your depth is diminished. And I don't know how much more Tobias Harris can give you when you're running stuff for Embiid and Riddick and Simmons and Butler already. But if I'm the Sixers fan, again, you're already that committed you might as well, go all in Lynton Yates, also. Well, it's about is a forty plus percent three point shooter. So he can give you that. However, the issue is that he's on expiring contract. So of this isn't at the top, you know, if this doesn't move the Sixers to the top will then it's a bad gamble, which is why I think ultimately the clippers probably win this because they've got everything they've needed in this situation. We're coop. Recouping all those players and picks is what you have to do in order for the clippers to improve. That's not always easy to pull off and actually get value back in terms device harassed. But right now, I think is he's right. If the Sixers can make it to the finals, this is justified whether or not you bring devised backing up, Bob, ruin your view of it. For the record. They just picked up one of the best kept secrets in the league. Most people do not know how good Tobias Harris is or that. He's averaging twenty two game but shooting forty three percent from the floor. They do points. Now, they they chlorate yet. They're the winner right now because they are now assembled one of the three or four best starting fives in the league. They're going for it it being getting to the finals. I don't know the day of deluded themselves to think that this team will beat the warriors when they get there. But I don't think they certainly think they can now beat the raptors the bucks and the Celtics with this team, and they may very well be right. So it's all about now for them. And as far as the clippers concerns over conjecture, sarahspain you. Yeah. The temptation is to go with the burden. The hand is better than two in the Bush and say this is all about the Sixers because as Bob Ryan said they've got one of the best starting five now and talent wise there as believable as anybody in the east to get the number one seed and go to the finals that being said, it's actually a bigger deal for the clippers because we already had the Sixers as one of the best teams in the east and with the potential to. Compete the clippers have now established themselves and very clearly made the moves that are necessary to say, we are a destination for two max super free agents in this off season. And that's a big change from where they were before. And what we expect it out of them. So it's a bigger deal for Ellen. I want to address it in second. But real quick since Bob said Philly's got a top two or three starting five in the NBA.

You got a lot of questions about the Jimmy Butler trade. But yeah. The Butler Jimmy Butler saga is over on Saturday. Minnesota agreed to trade the disgruntled. I believe is how you say that word disgruntled all star to Philadelphia along with Justin patent in exchange for a package that includes Robert Covington Dario, Saric, Jared Bayless and a twenty twenty two second round pick. This goes down on Saturday. A lot of fun your initial reaction to this big news, obviously Jimmy Butler, finally out of Minnesota and going to the east to team up within beedon's hell it, and I think the beginning is it's the right move in theory. It's a great idea. But it's kind of like, Mark Wahlberg suspense drama. How will this baby? And. Off the bat. I think about there in Philadelphia is the right move. But will it end with a five year one hundred ninety million dollar contract at the end of the season that Jimmy is entitled to sign. It's a question Mark on the floor which will get to but also off the floor as well. So it is it's high drama, but in as a concept Jimmy Butler is needed on the Philadelphia. Seventy Sixers to be a a last second score they desperately need one. Yes. This is going to be interesting to see what sort of attitude Jimmy brings now will he bring the combative? Listen, I'm the boss, and I expect everyone to be as work hot as me and be as tough as me, or is it going to be like, it's tough Minnesota pull my head in here and produce because I doubt that. Yeah. Well, I don't know if he's going to walk in there and just immediately stop pointing the finger though, I think he's going to have to earn that respect from from the gonna take a back seat. No, it ain't expected to take it back seat. But I also expect him to to not be quite as. Of a jerk. Yes. Yes. He's sort of. He has that track record. It happens in in Chicago. It happens, of course, Minnesota and the guy is trying to get a five year hundred million dollar type deal here. It'll be on best behaviour. You would you would think. So because if the.

"But to see him shoot the way he has kinda take over. It reminds me a little bit of one Jimmy Butler kind of star turned when Derrick rose got hurt. I feel this LeVine is never going to be the defensive player Jimmy even close to the defensive Jimmy Butler was, but it's interesting to see, you know, the raw pieces turned into more refined resources. Let me ask you. So I've watched one bulls game and Zach LeVine had the ball all the time. All the time. Yeah. Does that hurt the rest of the offense at all? Because it seems like Zach LeVine, he's not a point guard. Obviously he is a guy who was looking to get his own shot. And when you're giving a guy like that the ball is the rest of the offense eventually gonna get stagnant. Yeah. Of course. And that's I think that's a big reason why they're wanted three. Obviously another reason why they're one and three is something you said which was before on got hurt. You said oh boy of Chris done gets hurt. This team's point guard situations bad. And of course, he's now on six to eight weeks. So it is your boy Archie DR known a bunch of you know, Cameron Payne and a bunch of other tank commanders. So, you know, it's I Tyler Ulis Eyler choke God. Yeah. So I just think that you're right. Like when they if they ever get good within their when they get good. That is not the plan. The plan is not to have aquit Vince usage rate, just sky high you want, you know, him and Markkanen and done attention and whoever else they have spreading the ball around. But they just don't have that right now. So in the meantime, it's given him a great chance to really test some things I think in in give him the chance to be to show that he can be the guy at a in a pinch. Or in a big moment that can score one on one. Which is something they were they Headley missing. You know, say what? Were you want about marketing? But he's just you know, he he's a big, man. It is what it is. He's not going to be able to bring the ball up for you. And be that guy. So to have a primary baller that can score at will. Which is what has done so far this year is nice to see. But you're right. Like, generally speaking, this is not how you want to build a team. There's a reason why takes three stars to wind up one. Pretty good player. So yeah. What is what's the term fit with Bobby Portis because I don't I mean, he's playing great. At least what I saw. But you know, he's not a small forward. You do have marketing and Carter what's the plan? Long-term? Do you think I mean, I so they didn't replace them before that deadline as we talked about last week? I think that they their plan for him is going to be to you know, I think that he you want him to be your sixth man on a good team. Okay. Gotcha. And I think that that's what they think of as that. He's been forced into starting because take kind of force fed Jabbar into that six man role. And yeah, I think that ideally he's your six or seven, man. So I mean looking at this year's crop of NBA draft picks. And obviously there's going to be a lot of college basketball to be played still but RJ Barrett. The clear in a way top choice for the bulls, given his ability to defend and handle the basketball. No question. You know? I think it's interesting because I think he's he and LeVine have some similarities, I he's obviously much better ball handler. But it would be interesting to see those two together. I would obviously love to see that. But he would be. It'd be great. It's going to be interesting because I know you like Chris done to and doom point guard in this draft though. I don't I don't take in high. I think last year was year to do that. Or who has two years really two years ago is even better. But yeah, I don't I don't see that player in this draft unless it's Barrett, and I'm not sure Barrett, obviously a point guard either like a true point guard. But he certainly seems like the best ball handler. And I, you know. When you're that bad..

"And bay to are sponsored by driver, so special place in my heart for these guys. Absolutely. So we're gonna talk basketball today. And you know, that's something that I always upward back you. And I couldn't help ourselves. We were talking about Lonzo ball on is improved shot before we started recording. Let's start with Jimmy Butler because it seems like the Timberwolves are renewing their efforts to get this guy out of there to find the best trade, and we're hearing the reports from whoa JR. That the rockets are offering four first round picks in return for Butler as part of that deal. Yeah. It's absolutely insane. Unprecedented amount of picks. I mean on one hand, I think is great bold off. You know, attempt by the rockets, I doubt they'd be able to pick him back up. Why do you say that you think extended max hundred one hundred percent? There's no way you're giving up four first round picks. If you're this rental can they afford it? It's go into the luxury tax. Okay. All right. So okay. So they re signed him. But does this end up being hypothetically, if they were to do the four a similar situation till I didn't that Celtics deal down the line, or do you could be eight hundred percent could be from what I've seen. The offer would be a what's gonna be twenty nineteen twenty twenty one twenty twenty three and twenty twenty-five first round picks. The most you can offer in any given trade is is four first round picks, and you can't trade more than four within seven years because of the steep enroll. So that is the maximum allowed number of picks to be treated, and you're right. It's great compete this year. But Chris Paul's not young James harden that guy who knows how long that's gonna last and Jimmy Butler twenty nine. Old. This could be not only could be will be radically different team when the rockets take the floor in two thousand twenty four. So it very well could end up being something akin to what the nets did. The only question is unlike the nets can the rockets capitalize on the talent prior to that. Yeah. That's true. And the other the other thought I had with this whole situation is it's a classic, you know, situation where you've got potentially the outgoing coach in his interests versus you know, the the owner's interests. And for an owner you say four first rounders. Wow. Plus that mega draft that's coming in potentially twenty twenty one. Right. And you know, and then idea that, you know, the owner would probably be more likely to be willing to take the bullet and do this where Tibbs obviously is much more interested in a media assets or assets that could translate in the next two years. So I think it's it's really interesting. An interesting offer. Because if there are more he did put this on the table ended that isn't if by the way, but if you're like, you know, it pits the coach last GM versus the owner, and you know, they're competing interests. I just think it's fascinating deal or a fascinating offer. And I'm not sure I would take it if I'm the T wolves. But it definitely makes you think and it's a kind of creative stuff that they're all Maury in the legion of Mauri? Follow a hers. You know, would would be proud of. Yes. You would also probably have to trade Erik Gordon as part of that deal. That would be a nice little a nice little counter piece to Karl Anthony towns and Andrew Wiggins with his ability to stretch the floor play a little defense. That's not the worst trade in the world. If you're the Timberwolves because you are really just throwing darts at the dartboard. It looks like from other reports I've heard that mega draft is probably not coming as soon as we thought it was the the ability for to radically eight the current system in the one in Duns could be twenty twenty three at this point. But the..

"On today's episode, dances with t. wolves. Scancen practice guys as first reported by the athletic Jimmy Butler held a players only meeting. Now I can say I reported because Jimmy Butler just confirm that to me in a text. Athletic also seeing signs point to Butler considering staying in Minnesota. I think it was just that he feels like he's not being treated right now. So well, he, he's making the best of it. Well. Well, he's there standing Gundy. Are you surprised by either one of those things canceling practice with Jimmy players? Only meeting, no, neither one. I mean, I think you read the situation. They had an emotional day yesterday, Tom tiptoe, probably thought they needed a little bit of time off in a chance to to talk and get through this situation a little bit. I don't what the joke I made was you can't pull a Costanza on Friday and then come in Monday and act like, nothing's nothing's wrong. We're just gonna do work as usual, right? And they had a crazy practice beyond all the stuff that was the happened. The main thing is call it was humiliated, right? No, no, no, no. I'm not talking about at the moment I'm doing. I don't love that being the story line because that doesn't sound to me like, but I'm not talking about the moment. I'm talking about the aftermath regardless of what happened in a moment in the practice. The aftermath of the conversation of the last twenty four hours is Jimmy Butler went in there. He took the third string guys. He beat the first thing guys and told untold towns. Come do it to me and he couldn't do it to them. There's no way that was a good practice. He walks away after hearing all the the reactions feeling slighted really. And so I don't know. It says, oh, Demis considering stay in a minute. So I don't know if he can walk back like a standard just like nothing happens. Not considering staying in Minnesota two choices right now. He's got a little soda or donkey pay, and he's not going to choose not cowpats not, and he's not going to put off his free agency, which would happen if you did. Rankled using games all that stuff. This is everybody trying to make the situation work until the situation can change. Welcome indeed to the job. I'm Rachel Nichols alongside of me now hasn't coach. Making don't debut today. We are very, very happy with us. I'm thinking of all the different cities. You and I have worked together or near each other win, and I'm happy now to have it here in LA on this show.

You return to practice for the first time with the wolves, and I'm just gonna. I'm just gonna read a little bit of Adrian ward analyses report on what happened there that you were loud, emotional passionate. We like to say, targeting coach, Tom sibito teammates like Karl Anthony towns, Andrew Wiggins that you told GM, Scott Layden, quote, you f ING need me. How would you describe what happened today?

Anyone still gots. There's nobody producing the show right now. Billy ROY, Mike, and Chris all went to go get a drink. They're all hammered by the Cleveland or bar. They're drinking one of those giant drinks that that has beers ended upside down. This is our show with stugatz on the ticket. It's the shipping container talking to on a Thursday. It's almost Friday. Yesterday was Wednesday, they before that was Tuesday. It's nine twenty. What's the weather today? A little muggy. Sounds like the Chris Cody show. Now, you know, we're just trying to blend all the world's here. If you're just joining us Jimmy Butler said words yesterday breaking news. Yeah, he's still not on the heat, but all the words, I heard him say, make me want him more here, but we got Renzo on the line. This is really exciting. Usually he just tries to infiltrate the show and call in disguise voice. But today we're actually going to allow him to speak. You know, yesterday I hung up on someone thinking was Laredo and it wasn't that. I feel like I'm sorry, person I hung up on, so you're not gonna so you're not. Sorry, come on. So you're not. Sorry about all the times you've hung up on the Renzo and you knew it was him, but you know, all right to the person who accidentally hung. All right. So Lorenzo is joining us Billy. What's your beef with Lorenzo? I don't have a beef with Lawrence o. Meena menas walking in Meena just so you get caught up on what's happened today. So we started talking about Jimmy Butler. And yeah, that's the topic of the day. We were talking about Jimmy Butler, and then they started asking me about my wedding because I tweeted yesterday the wedding flowers are expensive. Yeah, they're expensive. So then they basically all started telling me that a wedding is total waste of money and not worth let Chris said that he regrets his wedding, and Allison was telling me how it's a giant waste of money and you're married, and I'm kind of wondering what your take on that is Lorenzo's here too to. Let's talk first. I talked to Lorenzo for second, so I can plug in me needs to get on the radio. We're on the air. Now this is license, please don't conversation. No, this is hurting. Listeners. Wow.

"It'd be staying there, but he just can't stand these two guys that really it. I think the way his ego is if he could be responsible for Minnesota shipping out towns and Wiggins, and by the way, good luck trading Wiggins. Then I think he might stay. I really do. It's never gonna happen. It's purely thought exercise, of course, in that whole, that whole organizations just a cluster f apparent like teams who are calling about Jimmy Butler, don't even know who they should contact because of how screwed up the front offices. Yeah. I mean, he said in his, I mean in his interview with Rachel Nichols, I'm, you know, I did read syllabi excerpts, and he said, you know, at that towns was the most talented and Wiggins is you know the most was that most, oh, God gifted or something like that. And then then Rachel said, you know is this is respect essentially, and he, let's be honest. It's not not fix our people who aren't committed to winning. So I are. I mean, I guess that's still jobs what you're saying that contentiously Butler wants those God-given admittedly, talented players gone for more, you know, more try hard to players that may not be as is that what you're kind of implying very much and I want him to end up in Toronto so badly. I, I wanted to end up in Toronto so badly. 'cause I for Lowery. Right? I, I think they have a replacement there and van believe anyway in Lowery's very much, not happy with the raptors after they treated the Roseanne. Who is his best friend, right? I just think it would be so interesting and I can't even imagine I know about is not a hundred percent of what he was, but if your opposing player and and you're looking at this raptors team and the starting lineup is you know, vanity. We'll forget about that because the point guard position doesn't really matter defensively at this point the NBA, but Jimmy Butler Kawai Leonard Hanna, Nobie and Serge Ibaka and the starting lineup, holy. There. Amazing. There's. Yeah, I think an OB is at some point. He's just gotta figure it out and just break out so hard. But, oh, I just wanted to happen. I wanna see the dynamics between him and and Leonard too, because I do think I do think Leonard could actually benefit a little bit from playing with Butler and being held to those standards. Either be good or just absolutely horrible lie coli being, you know, in that Spurs system would take well to some of that needling, but I'm not sure how it works. It'd be interesting. The other thing about the upshot for the raptors be, hey, you know what? If they do this, they've and it doesn't work out. They get to clean their hands of both those guys, but just it's a, it's a reset button. You know, right after the clean break and they can just go right into the rebuild around Anna Novi and Benfleet and those guys and whoever else they draft. Yeah, I see what you're saying in there is there's some value I guess to it being clean, but I think that's that's the real only benefit there because nobody signing Toronto like it's just a great city, but no known gay players going to play in Toronto. No superstar. And so you here you have to build through the draft. I don't know, and I'll tell you what a team led by vanfleet and in OB and searcher Baca. They're going to be selecting high in the draft. Very true, especially with, like you said, van beliefs, offense leaves or leaves something to be desired for..

"Welcome to the underdog episode. Number ninety. Three. I'm Chris del Joan balance. You Khanakala what's going on Chris doing well with you him in. I cannot complain a lot of really fun stuff going on with the company. A lot of fun stuff going on in sports. Starting off with the shenanigans that are Jimmy Butler and the Minnesota Timberwolves. I love this story like Jimmy Butler, man. He does not want to be heard, but he's handling it the right way. Like, I mean, he shouldn't be people, but, but. That's fair. I, I hear the, I hear the questioning in your tone, but it's not the Andrew bynum at least like went bynum was in Cleveland and he didn't wanna play for them anymore. He would just show up and he would take nothing but like three quarter court shots. He would literally shoot the ball every single time. You touched it until they told him to go home. Jimmy Butler showed up and he just tried to kick everyone's ask and bio counts. He did. That's funny in the story that came out about it after from one of the players that he wasn't even in shape, but he was still just murdering everyone he subs in. So the story is obviously he comes in late to practice. He jumps into a scrimmage with the third team, and then he and the third team just woke up on Karl Anthony towns and Andrew wagons into starters, essentially, and basically blur can be heard just yelling expletives at causing out at the not the owner, Glen Taylor and or no, the GM GM got Taylor GM and, and tips and you know, essentially towns backing him in and apparently he's like, you won't take me. You won't take many kicks it back out. It's just on real. What happened. And I mean, it was performance art and by all accounts, Rachel Nichols is up there. You know, why would she be up there? She's based in LA. I mean, yeah, it was Butler's. What should I practice or was in his pack as. But you this was going to be a show and Jimmy Butler his an expert in funding on show. Yeah, I don't do. Did you see the interview with Butler and Nichols afterwards? I miss that chills come out. Yeah, Butler was a. He was very calm talking about everything, but he's like, you know, I'm just I'm a competitive person and all of it came out at one time and speaking to the towns thing. He he said exactly what you said. He's like towns was back and people down, but I but I called him out and he's a, he's like, give it to me or something like that. And every single time he switched out onto Butler. He passed the ball every his cats not made for that, like he's not. He is so not Jimmy Butler. And it's interesting to think what if he was Jimmy Butler? Because if he had that like killer mentality and just a desire to destroy people on every single play, we're talking about a guy and no hyperbole, maybe with his town atop five center and NBA history. Oh, man. I mean he could have been an Anthony Davis. I think we saw Anthony Davis take that turn a little bit last year down. The stretch is most competitive for the first time like ever. And you know, the weirdest thing about this whole thing was just how bizarre it was like. All right. So Butler obviously wants to get traded, but he's yelling, you f ING need me at Scott late in the GM waving and like, what does that even mean? Though? Like I mean, you want to stay. Does that mean Laden should be embarrassed about the team put together? Like what? What's he trying to say? Because if he says you hit me yells back like, yeah, you're right. We're not treating you. I don't know. I found it all very bizarre. I read that as this should be my team. Like forget this other stuff. This is not Andrew Wiggins team. This is not Karl Anthony towns team. This is my team, get them. Oh, so he wants them out any walks amac to of Minnesota? I was. He does not wanna sign in Minnesota onto. I don't know that he wants to. I don't know if it's a location thing, but I, he just hates Karl Anthony towns, Andrew Wiggins. He hates them. So you think that he would? They would be three signing..

"So he's not back yet, but he should be back soon. They're expecting him sin. Baby come back. Are the timber wolves a playoff team this year with with or without Jimmy Butler? Yes, they are a playoff team. We both had them in my off our playoff rakings in we. I believe so. But are they in their if there's no Jimmy? Yes. I still believe they make it to the playoffs without Jimmy Butler. Thereby gone. It's hard being as the west is how like last year only three games separated what the second or the third seed from the ninth seat or whatever. It was eight in the other team was forty. Six. Yeah, it's hard for me to say that they'll make the playoffs to be honest. If they lose Jimmy Butler. I'm going to say no, just for the fact that I think that they would have to have everybody stay healthy like they would have to have a lot of things kind of bounce their way. So. I'll say no on that, but. Of course, he's gonna make their team better regardless. It's just that that relationship seems to be broken so Miami, how? How good is Miami get if they, if they trade out a bio, Josh Richardson and a protected first round pick, let's say that's not so much. You think so, especially with the other guys contract, twenty eight million dollars, what's well? If that's the case, maybe it's a different trade, because let's let's say that that that they're not attaching Jiang's contract to Jimmy Villarosa say it's Butler for out a bio, Josh Richardson and a protected first round, pick how do the heat improve their and if they do how much improved because we both have them as a playoff team in the east. They're well coached team. I mean, they have some pieces. It's hard to it's hard to say how much you'll improve the team, but do you think that they could be in the conversation with Toronto Boston in those teams? I could see a pasta that could be a possibility that could be dark horse of type nature. Do you think that they'd be better than the bucks. Possibly. I mean, it's not impossible. It's not impossible. I still think that they would be like on the outside looking in, like I would say right now, Boston Toronto and Philadelphia, and then there might be a gap and then Milwaukee, maybe Miami. Would you agree with that? Is that where the gap is or do you think the gap is actually, you know, after Boston or Toronto..

"And so then you've got contenders who either don't need him or all ready set or don't have the pieces to trade. I feel like as much as Jimmy Butler can make most teams better. He's a really good players top fifteen player. I just don't know where the right fit is of the two teams that I keep saying, I think. And this is irrespective of trade assets respective of trade machine. I've throwing all of that stuff out the window, all the technicalities out the window because it's more fun to discuss the two places. I think I'd like to see him that I think needed. Most are the bucks who really need a wingman for. Yoenis and the pelicans who really need somebody else with Anthony Davis not to overlook your holiday, but those are teams with great young stars guys who are knocking on the door of the MVP race, but who have kind of flatlined as teams because of the inability to get that other guy. So. What am I missing? World's? Does he make sense? Or do you have a thought on where he actually lands? Yeah, the the bucks and pelicans makes sense because both these teams look, you get him. You sign him. It doesn't really hurt you because you're already, you know, tap screwed anyway with some of the decisions of made over the years. So you're not ruining flexibility which I think some teams have concerned about because at some point in Jimmy Butler is next contract, and this is probably the case from everybody size these deals, but you're probably gonna be paying for past performance because Jimmy Butler when he signs, I think it'd be thirty when he signs that five year deal guys, battled injuries in recent years. I just don't think you know year three, four and five, what are you going to get from Jimmy Butler? So you're probably paying for two, maybe three years before you're looking at that contract being like, how do we get out of this and and what can we do about have or this contract is is really albatross around the next on the walkie. Obviously they need a player like that. Make a ton of sense New Orleans Smits it's desperation time and wanted to kill maritime. I think it's on some level because you gotta start winning games to start making an impression on Anthony Davis, just which agents over LeBron's guy. I'll tell you what, though, if I'm the Knicks I make a run at them because I, I know they're singing this song and dance about we're not trained draft picks, but maybe you don't have to trade drafting because as we just mentioned Paul, George though draft pick involved the co ideal. Maybe it's a late first round, pick maybe two seconds who knows what it wants up being ultimately, when when things shake out, if you're the Knicks if you can get Jimmy Butler and you don't have to train his canter because that contracts all the maps, right. McVay keep that contract. They have matched level flexibility on down the line. You go, get you create you about all of a sudden you've got Butler. Yup. Porzingas presumably your function under Fidel. I think that increases the chance exponentially that you get a Durant or a Kyrie Irving or somebody else you can show that you got that the young unicorn potential superstar for zinc as the. Guy that at the very least is an elite number two guy. All of a sudden I think the Knicks are in business. So if I'm going to work, it doesn't cost me more than like frightened kina. And then something else, you know, I would go and make a apply for him. I would feel a lot better about that play. If I knew that porzingas was going to definitely be Porzingis again, but you know, there's there's, I don't know the seven, seven foot three guy with the surgery. These coming back from it scares me a little bit, and I think if you're Jimmy Butler or anybody else you star who wants to hitch to the next wagon, I think that might give you a little bit of pause worried about or thinking that. I mean, I feel like that's one of those injuries that like everybody comes back. Yes, except for Derrick rose. Let me with like his knee has been shredded like over and over again. This is the first five ranches. Granted, I, what scares me is that porzingas moved like no other seven, three guy we've ever seen and that that probably created arguably created the circumstances for that ACL to buckle in the first place..

"Yeah, I think when you talk about taking risks, the risk of losing Leonard, it was you got a chance to get a top three player in the league and you got him. There's risk a little bit. There was risk with the health. Is he going to be healthy? Is he going to want to be here for years? You got to be motivated and so far early on in Toronto. Koi has made a great impression. He is coming very determined to play while the sheer to help the team win, and obviously he'll figure out free agency as he goes. I understand that risk Coa Leonard is you know, he's an MVP level player in the NBA. Jimmy Butler is an outstanding player, but he's. Level below that, and he's older. And I think the question too is this isn't breaking up in Minnesota because he doesn't like Tom tiptoe. He's always had a good relationship with Tibbett. Oh, now it's strained as this process plays out and he doesn't get the trade and you'll see become probably more at odds. I think that's starting to happen. But the fact is he credits Tom thibodeau a great deal with his development of player. Last pick of the first round out of Marquette, who went to Portsmouth and the pre-draft process was fighting to just be a first round pick and becomes an all star max player in Chicago, and the fact that if you're another team and you're saying he's walking away from Tibbs, he's walking away from this team. Could he do that to us after seven months? And I think that factors into your thinking too, about what you give up for him? One hundred percent, right? I mean, he that extension that. Minnesota offered him would be available six months after your quired him, and he's not going to accept, you know, four years, one hundred million dollars. He is certainly renegotiate renegotiate his contract. But as Minnesota learned this summer, when you're over the cap, you can't go about doing it and it would take gutting, you're going your roster to do it. And you know what I've learned is that when you go out and make these type of trades, you're always chasing that trade and you're trying to acquire other pieces to make that player happy. And you're really, you're really hurting your roster to do. So. I mean, I mean the the Darren Williams trade back in two thousand eleven in the year later to follow up with Jerry Wallis because you're trying to convince Williams to stay or your trading multiple draft picks because you're trying to convince that player to stay in free agency. And I think that's where. That's where the situation in Toronto with Colli that Masais got a good comfort level with that roster there with Kyle Lowry surge Bach, and some of the younger players Dhillon. Right. And then Lee Valance Eunice that he doesn't have to go out there and go out and get it Jimmy Butler PO. Possibly that he says, I can go to, you know, I can go to battle with these guys that when fifty nine games with Colli Leonard. And that's a lot different than maybe the team like Brooklyn who acquires Butler and then says, what other pieces can I go out and get to try to piece his player to make us competitive? And I think that's really where teams really get themselves in trouble..

"I look at Brooklyn which Sean has been able to do in really grow at from from the bottom in now, are you willing to kind of jump the shark here and get a Jimmy Butler if that may be? Does that get you another player? Possibly. It's a lot of money you're going to have to invest in in with Butler. One hundred ninety million possibly on a new contract for player who minutes. Consistently ranks in the top ten. He's averaged thirty seven minutes the last five or six years here. My concern is that what happens if Jimmy Butler does not like it there for the remaining six or seven months there? Because yes, you can have a handshake agreement there with the agent and the player there, but there's nothing binding. So now you are you recruiting him for you know that six or seven, six or seven months, and there's no sure shot that you're, he's another player is going to come. So now you are, if you're Brooklyn, he's your face your franchise. You have a lot of money invested in now you're possibly a playoff team, you know, in that maybe that back in at six to eight range, but that's, that's who you're you're married to with the clippers. You know, you'd have to probably got some of that young players draft. They've, you know, they've gone away. They had gone away from the velopment. Now they have some really nice young players that taking go out and develop and one or two, those guys would probably have to go. I think it would be interesting because some of those other players, Tobias Harris, the Avery Bradley's you know, guys like Lou Williams, possibly. There's a possibility that if the clippers are going to go get to max players next year, those those to those players won't be there anyway. So I think if you're looking at it from their perspectives that what our mindset isn't, I think. Maybe you become a little bit more aggressive, but it all goes back to, hey, we have the cap space to go out and get this player. This player really wants to come to Los Angeles or Brooklyn. We can fit him in with room in really do much to our roster and draft picks to keep on building this thing..

"Day window, or can you get it done that fast that the deals are. Going to be the same now than than they would be two months from now or a month from our weeks from now? Well, I think it's extremely rare to get a deal done and it feels like it's been three months and that a week since the Jimmy Butler. And just just circling back, you know, with with the kids situation back in. Two thousand seven. You know, Jason, you know, did not show for game citing migraine was a home gaming. It's New York, and that was in early December and he wasn't traded until the deadline in February. So that's three months, three months later. And that's how long it took to try to get the right deal. And eventually we got that with Dallas. You know, on the other end, having been part of the Carmelo Anthony process in two thousand ten little similar to to Jimmy Butler, but not as public Anthony showed up at training camp. You had a new general manager with Masai. That was the last weekend in September in that didn't happen in the trade didn't happen until MIO mid February. So I would you look at Minnesota where they are right now, you're, you're not gonna get the return back that you traded for him back in June of seventeen with. The rights to lower market in Zach, lean and Chris done. You have an owner who is been pretty up front as far as trying to get something done. Relatively soon here, you have teams that have started training camp, you know a week ago and you also have teams that the landscape in a league is changed so much that we're going into into a summer were half the teams that are going to cap space and are not willing to give up significant assets to go out in trade form where they can possibly sign them as a free agent. And I think if you're if you're Minnesota, you're trying to create a, you know, almost like a bidding war between teams that are over the cap coming into next summer, the Miami's of the world, Houston and try to get into a bidding war and I, you know, we, we don't see that happening right now. You know, the next thing we'll have will happen is of Butler. There is no deal to be made in, you know, when. A couple of days. And then what happens with Jimmy Butler in Minnesota's for showing up. And that's another issue of like, tap typical wants him to show up. He wants him to play. He wants to try to win with the group they have now. I think it will be a challenge to bring Jimmy Butler back into that locker room. There's a lot of animosity between he and their young star players, but I still think Tom thibodeau feels even with the dysfunction. The fact that they all don't really like each other don't like playing together, and there were a lot of things said in the off season and even in the lead up after the trade request. I still think Tom typical thinks his best chance of getting to the playoffs that he can still get to the postseason with these guys. And if he's let go at the end, the season, then he at least can say for his next job, I got Minnesota. The playoffs twice in a row after they missed for thirteen straight years. And I think he feels if they make a trade, they're not gonna get value..

"Of the greatest NFL linebackers of all time only to have his life end in a tragedy that would rock the leak. And I would argue still reverberates today start your subscription is and plus retrial. You can watch those all right time to play the music. I wanna make the spy ring right back people. We know Jimmy Butler preferred list of teams to be traded to the nets Nixon clippers with the clippers being his ideal destinations, we'd be happy with that sentence lose the team porcine in extension with. So the theory is the incentive for the wolves to trade in there as they get more back for him. What about a team? Not on this list, Jackie. Do you think anybody else we were just talking about Philadelphia. Do you think anybody else. Start to make. Oh, so we we were talking off camera about the three teams, the nets, the Knicks and the clippers and the packages they may put together. I find them all to be incredibly underwhelming. I'm right. We were just talking about shea Gill. Alexander everybody says it's going to be a flat out star and how the clippers probably wouldn't want to include him right. Something like that. So if I'm another team, I'm gonna throw my junk. I don't wanna say junk. I'm going to put on my stuff out. I'm gonna throw. I'm gonna make on many levels Jackie. Go ahead. You know, I'm gonna make my offer. It's not going to be the best offer, but at least you know, I'm in the ballpark and and if you if you don't answer my call, why am I any worse for the wear Toronto, not on Kawhi Leonard preferred list, and of course Oklahoma City on, I'm Paul George's preferred list. So there's precedent for this. Worked out for one of those teams TVD Toronto. I think there will be a team, you know, it could be a team that's so good that they think we're going to be a sixty one team right away, and that'll be enough. It could be a team like the heat who is desperate in an celery cap. Hell in always has faith up. If we get a guy here in south beach, in our culture, we can sway him or could be a team with a big salary. This look, even if this guy's pretty good worse in trapped in such salary jail. If we if we've moved the salary for Jimmy and Jimmy leaves and we get off that salary, it's still like a net neutral. Miami is a really, really good. We know how Jimmy Butler nd Wayne Wade are. I mean, even after they parted made in part ways, but even after they were in Chicago, they still spend time trav-. Together in the summer plus think about their culture. They worked their tails off. It's all about defense and body fat, and they had the hardly the best owner in the NBA in Mickey. Yeah. So Jimmy would be where he confessed rated with some of the players in the locker room. The presumption is that he would be all in on the team culture. Although look Tom would argue that he has been trying to set that same team culture with the wolves doing the body fat thing though. Just wondering because you know the heat, do that still do do just crazy. Write a whole book someday on all the ways guys tried to beat the body fat index, right? The mood. They also do the ipad thing. Yeah. They all have stories, have stories. Publicly on television. Jackie MacMullan is one of my favorite humans on earth. We can move on just all the. Let's go team. Let's go to a team basketball. Why do they always do that? Why. That is Jimmy Butler list Knicks and I'm media day with a lot more of those pictures. The teams has been adamant about not trading graphics or young players upcoming free agents Dino's even after the Jimmy Butler news broke reiterated it to day. This is fresh quote. We feel comfortable with our organization where we're going, what we're developing here..

"Tomorrow, three eastern new Pacific that jumped will be live in Philadelphia as training camps officially opened. Our guest will be joylin bead and Ben Simmons and good thing headed to Philip because they just hired a new general manager. Steven Jackson, that promo, he's going to be live on air with us tomorrow too. So you know, you're gonna want to check that out. Let's talk about brands brand spoke today about his goals for the seventy Sixers. This season. Take a listen. Goes to develop this young court. Joe wells first time in the playoffs. There was bins first time in the playoffs. We talk about adding the third superstar. We have that third superstar in this room right now and Ford like we have that much talent. They're young, but we have that much talent. So just development and getting farther than we do. Zack. You heard brand talk about the talent, the Sixers, have, how much pressure is there on him in this new role? The next eighteen months are big for them. He's talking about if they're going to get that third star that third big salary before Ben Simmons gets presumably amac's. It starts to get mechanically a little harder. Although the do have trade assets like Miami's pick. It starts to get mechanically little harder just like sly Jimmy Butler slide in there. So it's it's restarting literally. Now Jimmy Butler. It gets interesting, but do you think the pressure is really on Elton Bryant brand in that regard? So I think Elton brand very well respected throughout the league player, and I think now is the front office guy, but I think you know, Brett Brown was in this role for this interim amount of time. We know that Josh Harris is super hands on owner. So to me, this is more of a consortium. It's going to make these decisions. So I think Elton gets to walk in here, and I don't think there's a ton of pressure on him by the way. I think that's excellent. That's an excellent way to bring him into the finance. I think he's going to be a really good GM everybody, those interesting position because they have that salary slot. There's been so much attention on like, oh, why didn't they get a big name player this past summer? Who are they gonna. Next summer on most teams, if you had someone like Joel Embiid, who was a bit of a once in a lifetime player, Ben Simmons who people are saying, he's the next LeBron James, and by the way, Marco Fulton was also the number one pick from us year and we can discuss in a minute how that may or may not turn out. You wouldn't sit there and say, oh, this is a team that really needs a big star, but that is sort of the guy that's been cast for Philadelphia in some ways. I'm, I'm understood that I, I really like Sarah till. On the one hand, you're right because everyone branded this summer like a failure in a big failure and they didn't even get elites walked away from them. There's no failure right now would you have? It was very is failure when these two guys, however, to if you want to win a championship, if a third guy is is not always a prerequisite, but really helps. And you only have so many chances to get one. And so I understand why people are like, you know why? Not if we can why not. I mean, it's really speaks to the pressure of Danny Ainge in the Boston Celtics that little bars about him. How much pressure is there? An brand pressures come in from Boston, right?.

"I was gonna say, well, really? You think it's going to be pretty pretty interesting. They're pretty uncomfortable. You got to deal with the media got the d. with your teammate that you just called out on social media. You gotta deal with the coach and GM who you've now sort of embarrassed. Right? Absolutely. First of all, I should tell the people that we had to explain his act before the show would catch you and traffic means what that's again. Why don't you just ask the question? I wanna to make sure. Graphic show traffic him. But the fact is one of the Jackie's young, but he's all that's what I love about him. Thank you. This is like an old guard. Yeah, he is. But the fact that it did escalate like this. I mean, it does seem, you know what? It tells you. It tells you how close to the surface all this stuff. What you remember before we were saying, well, we we know that we think that Wiggins Jimmy Butler, but we've never seen evidence we think are the absolute. Is your evidence just to. A month ago. So now you understand how close all this was. So you guys know better than anyone how the mechanics of it works. When the one of these trades is being put together, first of all, you're never gonna get value back for. Right. Never gonna get a Jimmy Butler level. Otherwise are used to that right? Kevin prince there. So that's one problem doing it under the gun when there's some threat of doing it before Monday seems it'll happen. But again, it's not in theory. When you say, gee, these guys have to now being a locker room together. What? What do you expect the timing to be? Well, I'm sure Jimmy Butler and his people would like it done before Monday. I don't know about the Glenn Taylor would. I'm not sure. Maybe Glenn Taylor thinks he can fix this somehow, and I'm not sure. I'm sure that Andrew Wiggins would certainly like it to be done before Monday now. So that's, but that's what's today. I've lost her as day Thursday. That's I understand. If you're going to gauge a whole bunch of teams, we know what Jimmy's list is, but you know, perhaps you want to engage other teams just in case those other teams have a lot of work to do themselves. You know, I, I don't know that any of them are. I mean, if you gave them the choice, do we sign him in free agency for four and one forty? Or do we trade for and then sign them to five? One ninety four one forty paid that extra year scares them. By the way. Part of the reason the Jimmy reportedly asked for this trade wasn't just I don't like maybe some of the other players in locker room. It was. He wants that five year as opposed to winning till he's a free agent where he can only get four years and I believe it's fifty less million dollars. Okay. But so now you're a team that's thinking about acquiring him and Jimmy Butler is a great player. Don't get me wrong, but you need the other player if you're going to contend if the three teams on that list..
