"Most of them are Philly and New Yorkers, so they root for the sixers or the next. But everybody roots for Yanis. He's so much fun. All right, so you mentioned the heat. We're going to start at the top of the Eastern Conference. As we record this, the heat are nominally in first place that the only team in the Eastern Conference to clinch a playoff spot so far, but stav. I don't know if you saw what happened. I'm licking my chops. Against the Golden State Warriors, not only did the heat lose at home, but they imploded. They imploded in full public view of everybody. There is a huddle and udonis haslam gets after it with Jimmy Butler Jimmy Butler, I guess, was acting up a little bit. It puts him in his place. And the weird thing here, I want to run this past year because so Jimmy was fighting a two front war, which we all know you can't do. Military strategy tells you that I guess. But so he hits on an argument. Simultaneously with both Udonis Haslem and his coach Eric spoelstra. And so two things happen, I want to ask you which one you thought was better. Did you like Udonis Haslem telling him I'll beat your ass, I'll be your ass, or Eric spoelstra asking what you want me to bleeping fight you? Yeah. I did like it because again, I like the idea that the heat are falling apart here. I like it because back to Giannis, they seem like the most spiritually together team and we can get, we can get into that. But I love that. I mean, look, you've done this haslam. It's like, that's what the guy is there for. To me, it was like, he's on call to deal with this exact thing. That's the only thing he gets paid for is to throw his body in front of the coaching staff. He's basically the coach that will fist fight a player if he gets a little if he gets a little bit healthy, right? So to me, that was just, that was you Donna's going through the motions if anything. It didn't even feel particularly inspired to me. But. Literally like his energy, I mean, he was like, what, do you want to fight? But he wasn't backing down. And that was, again, I mean, I think he's the best coach in the league, and he is. And that's part of it too, where it's like, it's not just that he is an incredible, you know, I mean, just to get this team to be number one in the east right now, although I think it's going to fall apart. Fingers crossed here. This is the closest it's been in a while..

"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.
"jimmy butler" Discussed on Open Floor: SI's NBA Show
"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.
"jimmy butler" Discussed on Open Floor: SI's NBA Show
"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. One of the best two way players in the league..

"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..

"Because with Anthony Davis it was the early foul trouble 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.

"What's up over fort low this Vancouver with the Washington Post. I am joined on the other lines by Michael the pod Pena who's been covering the NBA finals at G. Q. Five, thirty eight and wherever else you get your MBA News Michael we have a series we thought we were about to escape the bubble but Jimmy Butler pulled us back in a big game three win. For the Miami Heat didn't really see it coming my mind. We were already well down the path towards a Los. Angeles. Laker sweep and sort of an anti climactic and inevitable conclusion to this grueling bubble. But Jimmy, Butler had other ideas. He had a forty point triple double in the finals. I looked up the list last night as far as I could tell, it's just Jimmy. Lebron and Jerry West to have a forty point triple double in the NBA finals that is pretty special on top of that I think there was a real measure of revenge for Jimmy Against Lebron he spoke about that a little bit in his post-game comments basically saying look I've lost enough to this guy and we've got a new team and I think he was actually trying to rally the troops and saying look we're going to go out there and even this series on Tuesday at two games apiece. So from the heat perspective, it's this wild change of momentum where they figure things out. Defensively and Jimmy Butler unstoppable, and now they may maybe they get back everything lining up. You go to the Lakers post game press conference and Lebron says quote unquote were not concerned it was just about the foul trouble for Anthony Davis. It was just about the the really loose turnovers that Lebron had tying a season high of eight turnovers in that game and they basically like they shot themselves in the foot let's start. There is credit does Miami get for this game three win versus how much blame do we give the Lakers how do you parse that out from a percentage basis? Yeah, this is always a really tough question. I mean I'm almost at fifty fifty here because I don't want to discredit the Miami Heat for showing the fight that they did and Jimmy's performance was spellbinding and. ICONIC. Basically instantly, iconic on the other hand like the Lakers should be totally embarrassed about losing a winnable game and clearly not exerting the defensive force in intensity in this one that they normally have throughout the entire postseason way too polite Michael. I'm going twenty percent he. percent. Lakers. Were the Lakers doing at game three come on. Now I did not expect I. Did expect that exact response from you..

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. So I, think he needs to give him teams need to treat him as if he's for now from long. Yeah I totally agree not to say he's as good as shooter. ISM. 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. While let's Atro- traveling one of the worst things in recent memory and he played actually pretty decent defense. So you know downs with as Danny, green rarely get A. Chance. I say, okay the last thing I would say though. Probably one, the game for Portland. Great. Great. You was really good yesterday and I don't say that lightly as you know, nate, that's not a I don't allow that complement for silent whiteside easily on but you know he played really well yesterday while the match was perfect for him. 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.

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..

What did this was Jimmy Butler to Embiid? Jimmy Butler was the dog. He was the he was the leader of that team the level of intensity between Joel Embiid and Jimmy Butler is there are far apart on my gosh. Or if Joel Embiid at Janas mentality right now this series already over. I mean, not saying the whole thing is about Joel Abe's performance. But there is truly no answer for coli. But there's no answer for Joel Embiid either except Joel Embiid. He's the one that's making it easier for them because he's very Marcus all out. Yeah. There's a time to be serious.

"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.
