"Okay, so you brought up the nets and going small as being with Simmons at the 5 as being a potential solution there or an option there. Oh, you know what I would like to tell you about the nets? Let's talk about that. Okay. Can I just say something about the nets? I'm sorry. Let me cheer you up and you can say whatever you want. Okay. Okay, so we're going to talk about the nets now. And in Brooklyn, shamsher any of the athletic reported over the weekend that and I'm going to quote this quote these tweets. This is not my words. This is shams. Net star Ben Simmons is dealing with back soreness in reconditioning process that requires further strengthening of the area over a period of time before return to action. Brooklyn has no set timetable for Simmons return. It's uncertain whether the three time all star will clear necessary return to play hurdles for nets march 10th return trip to Philadelphia, but team is cheating as a day to today process. End quote, these are now my words. That's just a bunch of gobbledygook and I think that. Off the top, before you said we're going to say what you were going to say, how surprised were you when you saw this report that Simmons probably isn't going to play in Philadelphia slash definitely is a good plan Philadelphia. Not surprised at all. I guess. Embarrassed for the nets organization. But definitely not surprised. We, you know, we don't want to cast aspersions and say anyone's making up anything, but you know. The fact that it's just like that it's like he's got back soreness and there's this one game like 11 days from now. We're not sure. It's so obvious it's pathetic. It's pathetic. Listen, why would you mention it? It's like my, I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to play on March 10th T-shirt is racing. More questions than answers. You know what I mean? This is like me when I was in, I remember I was like in 7th grade or 8th grade and there was this oral book report that I really didn't want to do. And it's like, I'm thinking ahead, like, just genius brain. Galaxy brain, little Michael peanut. And it's like 8 days before it, and I'm like, I'm not feeling great. And you know, I don't think I'm going to be feeling great. I think my throat is still going to be sore. It's probably going to be affecting me for at least two weeks. I'm sorry. So I think we're going to have to take a pass on that report. What did John morant, what did John morant say earlier this year? We don't duck the smoke. We run up the chimney. All right? Yo, Ben Simmons is a ducking smoke, okay? He is absolutely ducking smoke. And look, at the end of the day, I have a listen. I don't know what's going on with Ben Simmons in the mental health issues. That's something that I like a great. Something that's very important, okay? And I don't want to make light of that at all. And I just don't know what's going on there. We don't know any details. It's kind of the first time we really had to deal with it to this level. I mean, we've had players come out and talk about it before. Paul George and the bubble, for example, and it wasn't necessarily handled well that. So, you know, I just, we're at a complete loss of knowledge in terms of what's going on there. But I will say just I want the guy on my team who wants to play in that game. That's the guy I want. I want the, you know, when LeBron had to go back to Cleveland in 2010 and they're throwing batteries at him and they were a couple months earlier they're burning his Jersey and the owners sending these thinly veiled letters and all kinds of vitriol, all kinds of terrible things. And he goes out and drops whatever. At 30 points in that game, whatever he did. You know, that was a good game. That was actually like a competitive game. I remember. Yeah. I understand not everyone's LeBron, but yeah, give me the guy who wants to play in that game. He wants to go up against his former team. Again, it just comes back to competitive spirit. Like give me the guys who want to be out there who care who give a shit. And if I'm Ben Simmons, listen, if Katie and Kyrie are out there, at some point, you're gonna have to prove it, man. You can't keep kicking the can down the road. You eat the first, what if he has to play in Philly in the playoffs, and that's his first time back. You're gonna wanna rip off the band aid, then or you just hoping you can avoid the sixers forever. That's not a, I just don't think that's a good strategy for you. So the next thing, man, when I saw that, I was like, this is a joke. This is a joke. They're just trying to kick the can down the road. They don't want to take the regular season seriously. They're willing to just, you know, hope they don't catch the sixers, so Simmons doesn't have to confront that, but to me, it's like, be a competitor, be a competitor. Go out there and you're one of the best basketball players in the world, prove that. You know what I mean? Was that your is that what you wanted to talk about when you wanted to talk about the nets because I have another thing to say that's going to take us off Simmons for two seconds. And that is what I wanted to say. I just want to see Simmons compete, man. That's what he should want as well. Have some competitors play in that game on March 10th. Waiting can only make it worse. Get out there, man. Have some, I don't know what it's going to take for him to build his confidence back up, but bro, you used to do it. You're one of the best guys in the league. Get out there, man. Let's go. Yeah, first of all, Shelby are wonderful producers should just cut that what you just said and we'll email it to Ben Simmons people will get him. We'll get that message in his headphones as he's warming up for his next game. And I think he'll be in the right head space after that. But it's just everything about him is theoretical right now. And the phrase on paper. He's on paper, he's a great fit. And it's just going to be really interesting to see if we ever thought ever, I think he will play, of course, at some point, but the ramp up to the playoffs. It's like we're basically in March. We're in the home stretch. It's not a lot, not a lot of basketball. Yeah, yeah. So it's just going to be really interesting. And what I wanted to say was that they could play the sixers in the first round. Yes, they could. A lot could happen. A lot is on the table. After it looked like Kyrie Irving would be cleared to play at Barclays center when New York City mayor Eric Adams lifts the vaccine mandate for the restaurants and gyms and most indoor spaces on March 7th. It actually turns out that the private sector vaccine mandate will continue to keep Kyrie's sideline. That was one of the funniest moments in Twitter history. Was the woj tweet followed by the sham street that was essentially like a league horse so not so fast for my friend. And then you had nets fans. Like poring over like New York City penal code and it's like, well, according to executive order, one, two, 5, 8. What a circus, man. Yeah, so the nets beat the bucks, this is actually a basketball point to make. The nets beat the bucks on Saturday night. Hello everyone. Kyrie played great..

"Looked good. Yeah, I think that the supporting cast and all the role players trying to fit in around harden and embiid is now that was kind of my concern last week. And I still think it is somewhat of an issue. We saw Tobias Harris is really figuring it out hard and spoke after the Knicks game saying that Harris passed up 5 or 6 wide open spot up shots and tried to put the ball on the deck and that's the type of player to buy users is. And he hasn't really been super confident in his three point ball. This season, so. It's not a given that he'll fit beside harden and Bieber. He can't ever really develop a rhythm. I think they called, they probably called more than one play for him in that game, but the one I noticed or I only noticed one play called for him. And you know, as you were saying, there's staggering these two guys, which makes a ton of sense. But I mean, Hardin's playing those benjamins with Harris a lot, too. It's what it seems like. The plan is right, right, right. We'll see about in terms of backup 5 Willie cauley Stein they signed to attend a, you know, I don't know if he's going to be able to kind of make the most of an opportunity at some point over the next couple of games. Paul Millsap is a backup 5 probably not viable in a playoff run where you're trying to win four playoff series. So we'll see how that shakes out. But maxi has looked really good. I think that that was also a question mark. He just, I mean, he's just such a really he's just a really special player. Like I love tyrese maxi is probably my favorite player on the team, honestly. I don't think it's the best player on the team. I think he's my favorite, just to watch how he kind of single handedly increases the tempo. You were talking about how the Knicks and the Timberwolves really weren't able to attack Hardin defensively. They tried a little bit, but. It really gets you out of your offense when you're trying to run like a pistol action on the side, and force a switch, and they were doing that with fournier and Randall a little bit. And the Knicks are just garbage. So they turn the ball over and I was going to say trying to say, some teams, I think, are going to be able to do it better than others, right? I look at it seem like Atlanta that's almost kind of begging you to switch all their actions because of the number of similar sized guys that are playing on the wings, et cetera. Miami with their off ball movement. I mean, if they try to hide harden on Duncan Robinson, they're going to be running him through screens, control hand offs with Pam. Chicago is going to be a really, really fascinating matchup. Especially when they're at full strength. I'm not saying these teams are better. I'm curious. I'm excited to see it play out. I'm not predicting it one way or another, but I'm really excited to see it play out. There were a lot of good games on yesterday, by the way. Sunday, I mean, 6 years in its game. Did you watch that jazz suns game? I did watch that game. Yes. I was watching it, and I down the stretch. Down the stretch, I thought the sun's had a really good chance to win that game. I think they kind of lost it just because they got dominated in the white side minutes actually. Their starters were playing really well. Tell me what you think of this. I thought it was a little interesting. Late in the game, they're obviously running high pick and roll with Gobert. With the sons have been better off hiding Deandre ayton in the corner on Daniel house. Putting Crowder on Gobert and switching everything. So taking a playbook, taking a page out of his playbook, basically, where they put rob Williams on a wing and they put jaylen Brown on the big so that they can switch everything. Sure. Yeah, if you want to give him credit for coming up with that basketball strategy. Well, I mean. You got to do what, okay, so if you do that, I don't think that that's wrong. And it just felt like they were getting a really good shots in that game, yeah. Yeah, and I mean, Mitchell's pull up three. He's super confident in it. And so you really can't deep drop. So maybe the adjustment is to bring 8 and a little bit higher on the floor, but then also you got to be tight with the rotations on the backside if Gobert is rolling and but Gobert's just played really great basketball in the past. I don't know like a week and a half. But yeah, I mean, you always keep me on my toes. And I really appreciate that. We have a son's related question coming up that display, but let's go back to the sixers for two seconds. I guess just like. Defensively, is that the biggest concern now for you? I know, I feel like sixers fans are very angry at us because we frame everything from a negative standpoint where we're looking for the flaws in this team, I'm just dubious still because like harden holding up, it's strange. Disbelief for me hardened, just looking so bad and then suddenly looking so good and why like what will it take for either his body to suffer another tissue related ailment or I don't know, something about it at this point is listen, I'll just say I'll just say Mike, I just want to see like I'm a skeptic because frankly. This sounds like such an old man thing to say. I don't know if it's because I'm turning 30 later this year. I just want to see some more like respect for the competitive spirit of the game. That's what it is. Like James Harden, you've put on two teams in a row, you've like time and time again had playoff failures for the last ten years and I'm not one of those obviously there's nuance to those, there's contacts, et cetera, but I'm a skeptic just because I just do you want someone who so clearly quit on two straight teams to like, are you excited about this? How do you get excited about that? How do you get excited about someone who is willing to just give up on his teammates? You know, it was one thing in Houston where although, again, he was the one who, do you look at what happened in Houston, for example, okay? He couldn't get along with Chris Paul, and he said, get this guy out of here. They bring in Russell Westbrook. It doesn't work. He said, yeah, you can trade Russ. And now he's like, I don't think this team can win. I want to get out of here. And it's like, again, like escaping any accountability he had for all the failed partnerships he had in Houston. He says Philly was his first choice. I just have a hard time believing that that was his first choice and he somehow ends up in Brooklyn. But okay, you end up in Brooklyn. Yeah, you're playing with Kevin Durant. He's one of the best players in the game. Arguably the best. I understand this Kyrie thing is literally a once in a century once in a lifetime. Once in a generation occurrence with this pandemic and the vaccination rules, et cetera, he's getting fed up, but we just saw him openly quit on his team in that Sacramento game..

"He was an mvp candidate for the number one seed in the eastern conference. He is the cornerstone of this organization. He is by all accounts beloved by everybody. You know. the teammate's respect them teammates like them. The fans like ownership like some coaching staff. I know it's easy to look at the injuries. But i think he also look the other part either they were a blown. Twenty point lead away from making the eastern conference finals with homecourt advantage. Maybe make the nba finals and he is the single biggest reason. Aside from kevin durant. Is there a better off offensive player in national basketball association aside and kevin durant when i can't sit here and say with a straight face at. Oh yeah he. He's a better off as a player. Joel embiid joel. Embiid gets buckets whenever he wants them like. He's that talented offensively. It's it. I mean and i say durant just because durant is a seven. Footer can get his buckets at any point. At any point of he get in inside the paint he can get a mid range she can get it from three. Kevin durant a score from anywhere. Joel embiid damn near can do the same thing without the without the handle of kevin durant. It's a it's a was the going price now in the nba. And he's the first domino to get that and it will be plenty more coming behind him getting the same thing in. That's just what they do in the nba. And that's why if you can make it to the nba mango. Make it to the nba. Because they paying you and pain you will well and you were talking before the show. This is not the first contract might look bad by the end. John wall slated to be one.

"joel embiid" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed

"I can't count on you. Okay as you know. I'm as big as i have been since before that draft when a member of the sixers called me and said. Hey what's your gut feeling on. Joel embiid i said he's a monster and if you can keep him healthy because he was having feet issues at kansas already and when you get big men we'll start with bill walton. It just derailed his whole career after he was the mvp took over the nba file. Seventy seven he was never quite the same. Just wouldn't allow him to stay healthy. So i said if you could somehow keep him healthy. He'll be the best big man in basketball. I still believe he is gin. Your yokich guy. I got it and it's very close between the two right but in the end this guy would scare me more than yokich because when this guy goes monster on you you you just cannot stop in and yet i can't defend him because he his rpm is not the hottest night after night after night but when he decides he is truly unstoppable. He can terrorize you on both ends. Because he can rim-protector like crazy and as you know he's as as great a big man seven foot plus throw shooter as i have ever seen the weakness visit. Mitterrand you can shoot three throw shooter back to the basket. Es coming off his career year it was so good and he finished a narrow second to yokich obviously in the mvp that qualified him for super max so he got it and he got the goods because not only is it guaranteed with him having a playoff an option in the the fourth year with their no more provision protecting the sixers in case of catastrophic trophic injuries tobacco or feet from here on. He's golden right to unfit. Okay so i believe. They are highly capable of winter championship. But i believe in. Ben simmons a lot more than you do clearly. He has psychological demons. He's got the free throw year. He is so shaky at the free. You believe who wants to be begin with been i would. I wouldn't give him up. He's too valuable to give up. All he's done is make three straight all star teams in two straight all defense teams and i saw him. I keep harking back to that february thirteenth game at utah out in be you when he went after go. Baird scored forty two on him and made twelve thirteen free throws because the motion. He's left obviously is pure. There's nothing wrong with emotion. It's all between the if you get him with the right psychologists psychiatrists slash shrink if you can get him on the couch and get him to eliminate the demons in his subconscious about the free throw line because obviously in the playoff game and gets atlanta. He got to the point. I don't want to shoot free throws because he has huge pride. That is really doesn't have honest. This shit like shameless at the line. Young to go up there and airball one or two and it's like i don't care in closeout out game. He started making them like the but the but the thing is i don't know how joel embiid and win a championship with a guy that shot one shot one shot outside the painting the fourth quarter and only three shots in the fourth. Quarter seven game series. He's sixteen eight eight and he can shut down trae young in any he can take the point guard out of the game. And it's just you can't find. I can't have it unplayable leading the ball game. He became unplayable dog. Took him out of the ball. Game be reported that he and dunk relationship. I have done irreparable. Felt like to me doc. Three him right undertones bus and drove it back. Joel embiid with driving above win. Win the game to add joel embiid. When did you feel the membership. Yeah i got it. There's still a lot of talent on that team because therese maxi has been dominated the summer league. He's second leading score. This refi danny green. They got please tell by his hair. Shake in how about. Seth curry made you forty five percent of his three-point shots. The pieces are there to be a championship. Your bed not getting past brooklyn. Pass the okay there. The peace. they're missing is a floor. General because i don't love been initiating the offense at six feet ten inches tall. That's what they do he brings. The ball starts right the offense he is the point whatever he is or whatever you wanna call it almost like a point center. But they are. You've talked about damian lillard but obviously they would have been damian lillard give up give get tomorrow earn. Know about that i. I'm not convinced about that. You think they want to give him up. I'm not so sure it want to give him up. He wanted to be going. Yup yup they got firepower. Give i just. I can't believe that you he hadn't had a torn meniscus during the plow run. It wouldn't shock me if they would be the nba. Champions this well did. They not have were they not in commanding positions against atlanta waltham. Now okay walked him down. He's got a torn meniscus and he was never quite calm. Which is what albay now. You have to hope that he stays hurt because if he's if he has one pure year where he's healthy can they went. Yes they can all. I can base it on his desk. He's been hurt more than he's been healthy. He'll say i gotta. I gotta hope he's hurt. You gotta hold these healthy just one which is an entire nba career. Hold that he's hurt. I'm just based on what i've seen since been in the nba. So would you turn down the supermax down. You can't say if you're sixers. Would you just say you can walk. No two more years these. What i'm saying is didn't you have disgruntled employee ronald. Yeah why are. We just got two years of the contract. Well if you didn't if you said no supernet and said we decline on that we're not going to give it to you right. 'cause they couldn't wait another year. Well you just let him go. Let him walk okay That's what you're saying you'd let him skip. Okay they got him on the contract for twenty twenty one and twenty twenty to lean into twenty twenty three so he would have really wouldn't be a free agent into the summer of twenty twenty three. Yep do i really did. Do i did. I really need to have to do that immediately. All i'm saying is based on his history. The guys miss two hundred ninety five games. That's what he's myths in his. Nba career you realize. They came within one shot. Which was the luckiest shot. I've ever seen in a playoff game by kawhi leonard of going to the nba finals. Right and it was against a golden state team. That was injury rack right. They were about to fall completely apart. And you don't think embiid could've one that series. Yeah i do think he could have scheme within one shot but remember he has tummy yeah but even with tummy in here it goes to the last shot in the ball bounces around the rim. Seventeen times and false run from the cordray. Never seen that before. He hasn't been that close in well. Okay but i thought they were really commanding position. And then his new partner in crime ran for the free wallow. You said okay you gotta keep been them with his partner in crime. You gotta get him fixed in the off season. You can't find sixteen eight all defensive team you can't that's that's extraordinarily.

Genie cassandra roles ma. Beloved mom detroit native who created the name jalen that he carries. But if you think. I'm gonna come on this show and blast the nays say he gonna have to do a lot more than that. He's a terrific talent. He has a great personality and he has a flair for the dramatic. Jacoby you and i know what this is. This is competitive. Jealousy heating go number one overall going into the draft process. He said out of his mouth he he would love to be a pistol and go number one and live. Detroit will detroit took k. cunningham. So now he's creating a rivalry with k. cunningham who just so happened to get drafted by detroit. I don't know how many times he's been there to say that there's nowhere to hang out with newsflash. There's places the hanging out everywhere where you've got millions of dollars ladies and gentlemen. This is really one of those things. Would you look back at his career if he becomes what i believe he can become because i believe he got all nba special type of talent. We'll look back at this like we look at like. We look at kobe. It will say he took that sleight of not being over one or not getting chills into kate cunningham as motivation to fuel his fire. That's really all this is. It's not about detroit.

"Alone. Your favorite teams defensive writing. I can see one move that both. The nets and their trade partner would possibly pursue based on their respective or racial motivations. What if the nets and deondraye jordan. Spencer dinwiddie landry shamet to oklahoma city for al horford and a second round pick and he says The extensively prohibitive factor here for any team interested in al horford. Trade is that while he can still substantially benefited team. He's paid twenty seven million dollars and that would be an albatross for most teams cap sheets. The nets are the rare team. That really doesn't care about a luxury tax. Bill if it will generate winds and they have a jared allen sized hole in their rotation that joel embiid is a few months away from drop stepping and dunking right through on the other side. His argument for okay see is look. They're rebuilding they get a couple of young players. They can afford to wait on a spencer coming back from his injury. And this is just more asset. Collect collection for sam preston michael. This really does feel an awful lot. Like a sam prestige trade. We talked about when he acquired al horford that it was only a matter of time before he turned him around and traded. Al horford for somebody else. What do you think about. Horford's fit in brooklyn and do you think that You know this could be a possible solution to what ails the nets I mean i think first of all the horford would fit in great and in brooklyn and he would make them better and my little bit more versatile and both ends then deandre jordan can right now the that said i like this is like whack a mole team building on brooklands part. Like if you if you slide out. Dj for horford. It doesn't really solve like your depth at the big spot at the five hole. So like i like. I don't i don't know why brooklyn would do this.

"No, I'm saying h to me age doesn't matter when you can knock down clutch shots and a quarter, and we can give you the ball and he can play point and you can play defense. Right. Jimmy, Butler as abrasive busy can be time because he's a very very high level competitor. I think he's still the guy that you want on that team because it makes everything else easier for everyone else. But I don't think Tobias Harris makes things easier for the rest of that core going into the playoffs. I think we might have said the opposite right because during the regular season it felt like Tobias had kind of a leg up. Yeah. And it just because of his shooting and the way that he could fit in around Benjamin's Joel Embiid, but the wage Butler played in the playoffs he delivered. I you know, quite letter was easily the best player on the court and that series. I could make an argument the Jimmy Butler was a better player than anyone else. Besides sold Leonard, right. Joel Embiid should be that guy. But he was hurt for the series. Was you know, clearly he needs to get into into better shape. Things. Injuries helped hurt him in also because he wasn't in shape, and then you can't train because your injuries or at but Jimmy Butler carried them delivered. And I think when they go forward like you need more of that under seems to be relationship with him in Joel Embiid devolve. I don't think it was a great relationship at first I think it took a while for them to find their footing, but this sort of bonded over their competitiveness. Them are crazy competitor. No. And that's the best thing that you want from young crew core of guys you want someone that pushing them this challenging them that is making them take that next step, and I love to buy shares. I think to buy it's going to get a great contract. I think he could be great on another team. But I think if you had to pick between which guy you're going to keep I think Jimmy Butler hands down is the right answer. All right. Let's shift our attention back to the NBA draft lottery. It'll be held tonight in Chicago. The Knicks are tied with the Cavs and sons for the highest odds of securing the one on which we all do. Ramona, how valuable with the number one pick be as a trait chip, and it'd be in the Knicks best interest to trades ions draft rights. No, okay. Don't as I just depends. Like, I look at it as who comes in free agency. I know I can tell you. I having talked to the Knicks their number one priority is right now getting the number one pick Zion will how can that a priority?.

"Suggesting last week. Maybe it isn't a perfect fit together. Those two long-term DJ. What do you think he's going to have to get better? And he's going to have to develop a mid range jump shot, and he's going to have to be comfortable at shooting it because like I said Joel Embiid is your focus if you would have got the ball inside the Joel Embiid coach the last two or three minutes of that game seven then you could play off him if they double team, then you've got guys on the perimeter like Jimmy Butler JJ Rettig who can knock down shots Tobias Harris. And that would have been great offense down the stretch, in my opinion. Obviously, it was a difficult loss for Joel Embiid and the Sixers and you saw him emotional after the game emotional after Kawai Leonard's game winner. And you know who else saw. Joel Embiid shed to your this is my favorite thing by far that I saw on social media. I thought this morning I was coming into work. This is a letter that was written by a young Saint Olivia. She wrote dear Jo L. You're my favorite basketball player. I'm sorry. That you lost. Saw you crying on TV. It's okay. To lose some times. I lost basketball games to you got so far. And I'm proud of you in the seventy Sixers your fan, a Livia, and I will just say this not only should Livia be sitting courtside at Joel embiid's next game. Joel Embiid should be sitting courtside at a Libya's next game. The next time she plays her fourth grade, girls, basketball, whatever whatever level of basketball does she's playing I think Embiid should be there to watch those kinds of things as a lifelong sports fan. And as a dad myself boy that if that doesn't I can't imagine what it'd be like to get a letter like that. It's awesome from a fan perspective as a player, you know, somebody's taking. Knowledge of what you doing out there on the basketball court and enjoying what you do. It's always special. Yeah..

During that when I know today's the day happy March madness everybody watching and listening right now great game between two of the best in the Eastern Conference last night. The Sixers and the Celtics traded buckets going back to back at the end. Joel Embiid had thirty seven points twenty two rebounds. And there's this slobby play at the end. But Jimmy Butler county. I love is in watch Olympic come over to steer them in the face. I love this so much Jalen rose. You can't tell me that Aron Baynes, Marcus, all or Lopez can stop Joel Embiid. Is there anyone in the Eastern Conference has an answer for Joel Embiid when it comes playoff though, I don't think. So that's why pick Philadelphia to win the east least on a dynamics that you just described. You have a young bull was coming into his own. Who's had some history of injury to understand the level of sense of urgency. The organization clearly. Does this will to go with Ben Simmons the added Jimmy Butler as well as Tobias Harris to supplement what they've done JJ rhetoric is a knockdown shooter knowledge of a sudden, I appreciate what they've accomplished as it relates to getting balanced. So you'll look at the numbers, but how about the attempts their top for their top three players all attempted seventeen shots from the floor bounce and Joel Embiid who can make the three was pounding in the paint. Which is why he made twenty free throw. It. Just don't have an answer for him underneath now to be fair as someone who watched the game. The Sixers look he didn't really have an answer for Kyrie Irving. Either. He missed a couple of shots at the end the game that you're only makes little floaters and lamps or whatever like what they would do. Carry Irving is JJ barracks on them up. He's going right by they run a pick and roll. Joel embiid's on go right by as much as Joel Embiid was dominant. So was Kyrie Irving, but I'm looking at the Eastern Conference. And this is something I've said all season..

"I'm glad to say that day free to still alive. I mean, he just came crashing into our beloved statistician took his heart and hit as you could possibly because one of the biggest players. He's one of the biggest people in the entire world. If you're listening to that. It does not do it Justice. If you're seeing the video of that on CBS sports network or you've already seen it. You know what I'm talking about? If you haven't go find it. Joel Hans Embiid if you need him that's a seven footer going into the stands for a loose ball like a mortal Kombat character and absolutely wrecking the broadcast attestation fatality flawless victory. Flawless victory fatality. Victory. You should not be going over the scores table. Poor statistician. Dave had absolutely no chance on that one. How do you avoid a seven footer who's coming in hot? It's impossible. You just hang on you watch your life flash right before your eyes, and you hope for the very best and even better than a seven footer leaping feet. First into the stands and jumping over the scores table is that he managed to spare. One of our national treasures Academy Award nominee, Ritchie and king. It look this is a huge Joel Embiid house. But if anybody harms which king, we'll probably all have words. Fortunately, he did not. And as she tweeted afterwards, quote, y'all thank you God. And Joel Embiid for your abilities crisis averted that's right crisis averted as Embiid said, quote, it's good that I saved her life. I guess but someone else had to like take that. I'm sorry about that. See this is the. The mindset of Joel Embiid. He wasn't just looking to save the ball. He was looking to save the life of a famous actress. And look if you have to take out a stats guy to save, Regina. You'll do that one hundred times out of one hundred times sorry about that stats guy. But he enjoy beta Ford afterwards, which I will get you in a second. But I gotta say I'm still blown away by the entire thing to recap. Joel Embiid went over an Oscar nominee over a table through a computer monitor and into the chest of a statistician. I mean, seven footers are not supposed to move and get up like that. It doesn't add up doesn't compute number two. That's a seven footer doing that in a regular season game against a garbage Knicks team when Philly was up by double digits. There is no off switch Amancio L, he's not going to back down ever. He admitted on the court after the game that he should not have done it. But there was no way that he was going to do it.

"And. May big shots at his like, what would you give fishing return? Well, I'd probably have to return Leong point guards in the second year of his cO ball, and I might have to eat it later, but but LeBron James has got three more years in. He could have two more. It ain't gonna be forever. So you want a young veteran LeBron trust? And I think Mike Conley fills. It's always interesting to me was I was not thinking about western teams. And I thought that there is a team that could use a point guard like Mike Conley San Antonio Spurs. Yes. I think that would improve their looking at the east because he's from Indianapolis. I believe Indiana's point guard situation is not like India. No. A lot of weight off all the depot probably a little too. I also thought that maybe a team Toronto could use Kosau. I mean, unless console it's phone off the face of the earth, which is possible. But that they can use a guy. Like absol I mean, I think there are a lot of people out there in the east because the east is winnable because the Brian in the east so these winnable this year, Philadelphia, I think they're set. I don't think I don't think you can if you bring Conley into Philadelphia. What do you do to Ben Simmons high maintenance, you have been like the ball in his hand me? Joel Embiid likes the and seeing all the time you're willing to be a bit with the way, my colleague delivers the ball to his hands. I'm just saying I think there are team. They can't look at themselves as a so angry. Conley. Jimmy Butler would take either get him out of here. Get me out of here is Jimmy Butler attempts to be on twelve teams in the same year. Collie Lakers best fit good fit. No. I think in the animated be the best good fifty. Yeah. Did you stay up late enough to watch? The Reno lose in Melbourne last night. I'm always up. Except like nine PM. She was up five one in the third set couldn't cash in on four match points. Of course Rita. Sprained ankle at that point. Couldn't win another point on her serve and committed eight unforced turnovers. Eight not only this arena refused. The call the trainer. She said afterward that Carolina police go play some of the best tennis. Serena had ever seen. Tony was Serena Williams being a little too magnanimous in her assessment of what happened hundred percent to magnanimous. I I watched. I watched her roll her ankle didn't really understand why she didn't call trainer out. I mean because that's later. She said she just hates the act of calling out the trainer in general does she just doesn't like do. We talk about. About that later. I can't figure her out. But I watched it enough to know that routine shots were coming back to our routine shots force, and she was hitting him right into the net. Time after time that is choking by any imagination any stretch of the imagination. It's still choking. And she's a great great great player. So for me, it's sort of like, well, what are you doing? The only thing I could think of was last year at the US open in the finals when she had a meltdown, and she was criticized so routinely by so many people maybe she said, I'm not going through that again..
