"For him to be leading a team to the playoffs in his rookie year as the best player on a team is, that's not normal like we've seen rookie point. Guards put up statistical years that have been good, but not ones that have led to the playoffs right so Ajaz, doing absurd, and obviously he's the for rookie the Ermal. Talk about that in a minute, but I think that Jenkins in this memphis staff of done a really good job of. Things around John Mirant despite the fact that they don't really shoot three ball exceptionally well like your John is a guy that like really need space on the floor to operate their twenty fifth in three point attempts per game twenty-seventh in three point rate overall in their early twenty, first in three point percentage like this is not a team that spaces it exceptionally well and have found a way to make it work just vice scheme, and I think that Taylor Jenkins serves a lot of credit for that. But she's kind of wild being. Yet we say Yeah Jaaz Ben Incredible and he has, and we'll talk about that in a second, but like I don't know. It just feels like everybody on. That team is getting the most out of themselves this year. That's a real rarity in the NBA, and we talk about it probably more than anybody else with like the raptors, right and nick nurse. I don't know. Maybe maybe it's just the the initial knee. Jerk thing where which team has exceeded expectations boast, and how'd we reward them and in three years? It's like I don't know Taylor. Jenkins is actually that good of a coach. I don't know it's part of the. Nation like look. The bottom of the western conference hasn't been that great this year. You don't. You don't say right. There are thirty two and thirty three like if losing record right now, yeah! Still playoff about he's doing a great job like I. Don't mean to disparage what they've done. But I I just think that the three guys at the top I mean those are the teams that have won more games than anyone else this year and I think that they're deserving of credit for having won more games than anyone else this year. Just given the fact that all of them had somewhat interesting problems to solve coming into the year or The case of booed and holder, and he's just figured out how to accentuate this entire thing and make it work in a way that is exceptional. Don Picking Up. You're laying down. I think it makes a lot of sense all right..

NBA 2020 Predictions

"About My tween twenty bold predictions now. This isn't just for the regular season. This is for the off season. This is the beginning of next season to these addiction that I think that potentially could happen. I'm going to say them here today. And maybe you can agree with me some. You may think this crazy in some you might agree with. We'll have to see my first pro. Prediction is that both L. A.. Neither one of the LA teams will not make the Western Conference finals. I think a team will beat them or since the clippers. Don't take care too much about seeding in the Lakers. Stay the number one seed if the clippers land four or five. They'll play the clippers in the second row. They'll play Lakers around. which would men? 'cause obviously semifinals matchup US and other Western Conference finals match. But I also feel like there may be a team that could upset me maybe Houston is probably the most likely that could upset one of the LA teams and. I think that they're going to keep them from making the the the Western Conference finals. I know a lot of people were expecting that to happen. A lot of people are wanting to happen. I'm sure it will be great for the Lee but I really think that that's something in my opinion that I think is going to happen. That's one of my first. Bold predictions of the twenty twenty season in further on my eh prediction is that the Golden State Warriors will form another super team. Now I don't know if there's going to be with Jaanus. It could be a cry towns because Golden State is monitoring situation but Golden State clearly knows. Listen with the way the League is if we want to be on topic how can we need to get an update US another super team together and I think that they're definitely trying very hard to get another another star player in there now. I do like that. Probably means that's the end of Draymond Green. But I think that's what they're aiming for taming to get their aiming to get another star in there to see to come back with clay and to come back with Steph potentially really they can make you trade for star because they if they do get a top three lottery pig. deathly do not be surprised. If they try to make a trade with that pick honestly they honestly could have just picked up an amazing asset for them because they could use that as trade bait in. That's good trait rate. You know maybe the team star is disgruntled. Maybe you never know. I mean this isn't somebody would think about like the sons have another bad year. We'll we'll give you our top pick and another guy. And we want Devon Booker. Obviously Yona how that work I mean you know. They're kind of doing the right now. And the end of the Russell even yeah no. We Really Devon Booker may be a better player Neanderthal Russell. But that's definitely a prediction I think could potentially happen. I think that the warriors warriors will form another super team. But it's not going to be as top heavy instrument of Kevin Durant who like the second best player in the League. That's why think if they got Jaanus it would be stacked because of state Stephan Klay can play like they play and then they completely put a better supporting cast around. Then you could say okay. Yeah this team is going to be very tough to beat. Even laker teams have a team. They may be looking up to but it will have to see because if they get any towns houses. This is a great player but we don't view him as view when Kevin Durant was there which means even though it would be very top heavy west conference. But that's when also and my pro predictions one of my other pro predictions. Are I think that revenue from the C.. BA will increase which will lead to more players undeserving of big major contracts. Getting big major contracts. I'm going to say any names. But it's like okay. Well I'll say this because I don't know if he's GonNa get it but there are people who are sometimes wonder now dre walgreens supposed to be a free agent this offseason offseason Draymond Green. We know he's not a guy who's going to score points we can do live. And he's a great gadget player. I would say but some people wonder. Would somebody pay draymond green the Max would they give draymond green that Max deal. That is something they definitely wonder about and like a question. Like why would you give you Max. If if there's more money to be spent draymond green could potentially ask for Max and if you like laundry a month you might give them close to it. I mean we already have players now. who try to sign that? First Max deal then take a shorter deal. Just didn't end up getting of that. Ten Year supermax dill. But you know it's one of those those things where I think that this will lead to more players being signed overpaid and I mean you obviously can see more cat room. It can lead the teams being in very weird financial situations with cap every team six Performing up to expectation and then you played a lot of guys a lot of money who may have never actually deserve the money in the first place so. I think that that's going to be something that's going to be interesting another addiction I have is. I think that James Harden will make it to the NBA Finals Cheer. I know that's pretty big. That basically means you're saying he's GonNa beat one or both La Teams. I think James Harden. This would be the best year for him to do it. I think right now this I flew. This is his best year do it. So I'M GONNA go ahead mcnabb. Oh predicts names hard. It's GonNa make the finals. These the rockets are GonNa make the finals. This may be shocking to you. But that's how I feel. I feel like that. Jr potentially do it. I feel like if he was able to average at least thirty in the playoffs and Russell could give him about twenty twenty three. That's fifty three between the two players and they have some good supporting cast. You can't forget about. PJ Tucker can't forget about Erik. Gordon Clink Appel. You definitely feel like they have all the potential attention in the world so potentially be a top team and so I would not be surprised if they end up being the top team they think they can be and making it to the NBA NBA finals. This year in basically just creating just such a great agree moment for the city Houston also another prediction. I think Diane if he comes back as soon as they say he come back. We'll still win rookie of the year. I think Zaylon has all the talents. Be A star of Zion. Comes back in balls out in just twenty points a game in gives you a lot of highlight plays. I think he will be able to squeeze out winning rookie year only only playing half of the year again. That's a pretty bold prediction but as I've anybody can do a Zairean can all takes his cause. Remember even the Luca one owned by a lot last year. You trae young exciting second half which made it interesting and don't be. We don't feel like John Moran is doing with Luca Danni last year so it's not as far fetched is not as it's not like oh it's completely impossible for Luca played so well and then trae young play well in the New Year but he's still play. Okay well it's like John Mirant is playing. Maybe the best right now. But he's not playing at local level from last year so of Zion can have maybe a trae young like surge in the second half of the season. I think he'll go ahead and win the rookie year. But it all depends on when he gets back. 'cause I do if he didn't get back to maybe mid February with that he wouldn't. It's only two months left in the season. At that point. He has to probably get back to move in the next two weeks and then just start going on a tear from game one because dial is full practice recently so he's clearly about to get there. Obviously you've seen him take jumpers you've seen him dunk Donc so I definitely things I on can win the rookie year if he gets back in time and my last bowl prediction is that the Atlanta Hawks will add a star player. This off season. I don't know who but I feel. They're gonNA add some but I feel like some of the issues they've had I flipped. They're going to add a star. Because I feel like you need to especially to make trae WANNA stay there because rotations rumblings that he might and I wanna stay. That may be something that you may want to do. If Your Hawks Front office you need to add some talent in their yep some good young talent but you're going to you know how it is as league view in a win you're gonNA have to give up that good young talent for solidified star. Obviously I feel like trays untouchable. But maybe Kevin Heard. Or maybe you D Andre One hundred maybe a cam reddish maybe push them shelby John Collins and I think they're gonNA make a trade for a proven star in this league and we'll have to see whoever that star is how far the Atlanta Hawks may potentially get because of it but that's it for me thank you for listening listening to the GMC football basketball podcast on the GMC podcast network.

"And share us here. ESPN LA fasttrack rolling on shea. It's to you false check. All right. Last night, was the NBA draft. We saw you know, I no surprise to me was how Bobo fell we just got word the taco falls on the Celtics. Sorry taco. They're terrible. Yep. And I feel like the Lakers miss an opportunity with that. We, we want tacos like. I would have been so good. Good such a good point. There goes that, and now we got RJ, they're going to the Knicks courses I go into the pelicans. Now the pelicans just got a bunch of hot players ladder, south. Yup. Who do you think has a better opportunity to win rookie of the years? I honor RJ berry or will it be the field? I will take Zaylon my second choice would be Zion on my third choice. Is I on even with Brandon Ingram demanding the ball Zay on Momo? There is this weird. Maybe RJ Barrett thing, there's nobody kind of thing John Mirant could be dumber, because he's going to step right in there in Memphis, and he's gonna play the most RJ's a score though. So I feel like they may not get anyone in free agency. They may like it maybe million dollars don't know what to do with it. So the big thing Zion has a four letter name that everybody will know and everybody will remember. It's like that's another another really interesting. Everybody'll. No joh- having a unique. I nee that help, I think really build your stardom. So I think that's part of it also think, Zion, is going to have coverage more coverage than any rookie. We've seen in a long time. So I'm on Syon there. They've been with RJ being in New York. Yes, they're going to try to pump like he's the greatest thing ever have nothing else. Mama yawns ion now with our Jay. RJ stand for because Zion they're going to go so out of their way to not put too much pressure on him into lean on the other guys. That's drew holidays team, right? Okay. Diane is a rookie who they're going to try so hard not to ruin. But imagine they're picking, and also. Yeah. No, I think science going to be a superstar fast Chack mobile, like, okay?

"Offered the New York Knicks the eight and the tenth pick overall in this draft for the number three pick, a pick, you would presume, the most mock drafts have presumed up to this moment, would be RJ Barrett of Duke to the New York Knicks, the Knicks turned down that offer from the Atlanta Hawks. So they in love with RJ Barrett. Are they love with somebody else? Let's s ESPN's NBA draft analyst, Mike Schmitz who's on the shell Pennzoil performance line. What's up Mike where what's happened? Thank you. I mean you bet let's walk through the drafts for if we can see what's going to happen on Thursday night. First of all, what do you know about this, this trade offer from the hawks to the Knicks? The Knicks are sitting at number three, the hawks have number eight and number ten and it looks like the Knicks were uninterested in moving back who they in love with. Yeah. I saw you know, Jonathan report. I'm sure just like you did. And I it's not too shocking to me that they would say no to that, you know, getting a player like RJ Barrett at number three, I think is appealing, you know, eight and ten you really don't know what's going to happen. You know whether it's other teams moving in the middle of the top ten or who's going to be left or maybe a team swings on a guy a little high. And the guy you want it, isn't there. I think there's a little bit too much uncertainty. So I get why they would hold onto that, you know, as Jonathan also reported Darius garland is going to be working out for them as well. So I think you know, they're kind of doing their diligence and just trying to get a feel for everyone who's out there and get a better pulse on garland, as well in New York Knicks are going to work out Vanderbilt guard Darius garland, where it's almost become a foregone conclusion that it would be our J Barrett. Number three to the New York Knicks Mike in your estimate. A lot of people say a three. Person draft is at a four man drafts kind of that drop off that cliff where people feel like you're getting a top tier guy. Some seem to think that it's a three man draft with Zion, John Mirant and RJ bare, but others put garland in that group. What do you think? Mike. You didn't that group. He started the year as number one point guard on our board..

"I would not wanna see I would not want to go there. Well to me that's only if if you buy that Beal and wall or not the players we saw last year and that the the players that we saw years ago. So the sun Spain fits their Spain Jason Fitz. We haven't even mentioned the sun to have one of the top percentages to get him. It just feels like I don't know a black hole and feels very Knicks like, but without the cachet of the market. And I think the problem with the sons is part of the conversation last year was the once they got the Andrea and they were gonna take some big step forward and not to playoffs. No. But there was a there was a moment where people looked at it and thought. Okay, de'andre in Devon Booker. There's there's something there to build on. And we spent a year ago right now, we were talking to amino acid about how the the Suns coach was going to be a good fit for this. And now all of a sudden they have another new coach and another year where the first overall pick is supposed to fix everything. I just don't know what fixes Phoenix. And so, you know, I I don't think that we've seen enough from. Andrea eight and to know that that suddenly makes him a bigger star was I on next to him. So I don't love it for him. Well, and also if you really look at it, it would make more sense for the sons to take a point guard John Mirant because they've got de'andre Aiden and Devon Booker on the wing, and they've got this core that should be taking bigger steps forward. So if the point guard is the real issue that puts them in an interesting spot. Same goes for the bulls. Like, I would love for the bulls to win this this lottery intake Zion. But it kinda makes more sense to take John Renton fill the point guard position. If they've already got Lauri Markkanen and Wendell Carter junior. So I I think I think you have to keep Zion. If you get him, in my opinion, especially in a market like Chicago, that's desperate to get people back on board after they're so frustrated with the front office and the head coach. But there will be interesting conversations to be had if it is a team that is more need of that point guard position will what is the trade value? That's the other thing we don't know because as much as we're having a conversation. I know the Nick. Conversation of you know, they're going to trade somebody. I'm not even talking about that. I'm saying that what if the bulls win the lottery. Okay, we're gonna have a happy thought here for you for the bozeman the lottery, right and the Knicks finishing second. I mean, what's it worth for the next to move up because the bulls won John in your example? I don't think you're wrong. I mean, the bulls getting John Mirant makes a lot of sense rather have John Moran? But men do what are the Knicks willing to give up to move up one spot in the draft. I mean, if you can move down to two for her whoever wins like Phoenix or the bulls win the lottery and are able to move down to the second spot. Get John Marin they'd get a king's ransom in return for I on. I mean, that's very NFL draft logic. But I think in this this case because his eye on it applies. Yeah. And and this is where all the lying to right? This is where we start to hear people making little fibs around different trade deals and different options just to see who might bite, and that's what's fascinating about this tonight. We will get the. The order. We will not really get a feeling for. How teams are actually thinking. It feels like Zion is an absolute sure thing, but we've heard plenty of very smart basketball people since the beginning of his run at Duke saying, I don't know if he's actually the one that's going to give you the most success long term. But also, can you be the guy with the Kahane's to say no to him? Yeah. I don't think anybody can. But Zion isn't this draft lottery isn't just about. Whereas I on goes, we all have to be honest..

"Having Zion and RJ Eric that you you this is a perimeter game. It's become even more so perimeter game each year. Did he have the right team surrounding them? You know, he had the best team that he could get under the circumstances. When you're losing three and four kids who find a an outside shooter who might not be a one and done easier said than done is you're setting the not I'm telling you because they have to be able to play. I mean, you understand that he knows this right? Like, he can look at it seems they boy would be nice if we had a knockdown shooter some of these guys didn't pan out, Alex O'Connell, Jackie. We'll a great in the first couple of games. And then he went oh for like twenty nine thousand nine he literally missed. At twenty nine three pointers in a row. So you know, and and Zion and RJ as talented as much potential as they have their underdeveloped. They're eighteen and nineteen and there's only so like what she's got good at and calipers really good at this. There's only so much. You can teach these guy in a seven or eight month period. So let's teach them what they're capable of learning. And again like we'll have the right roster. Nice. If you had another shooter, they won what thirty one games, I think they want. They lost like five or six games all year a half of them were without Zion. I think only one of them those two games all year at full strength, and they lost by one point in the elite it. But there was no secret. I said if you can keep them on the perimeter. They don't make free throws, and they don't shoot well in they're going to get stung in the tournament. To argue against myself. They're very fortunate even just to be absolutely. I should've lost his central Florida for sure absolutely. Zion Williamson than John Mirant. Would you say, yes? Those are the top two. Yes. No question. And then everybody else fault. I still think RJ is going to go third. Yeah. John Moran is really special and it really wasn't until that Marquette game. And is not because of how good of a team Marquette is which obviously they are. It was the circumstances. It was the stage. It was like I've been watching them all year. I'm like what I call Gumby. And is that everything that he does great? And so he steps up not only in competition. But now like he knows everyone's watching him for they've heard about him and for him to perform the way that he did under those circumstances to me shows shows me what that what's going on up. Here is pretty special. So yeah, we've had this question here. The last couple of days, I don't know how it emerge, but the most talented player in Duke history. And it feels like we're pushing Leitner to the side. He's the most -ccomplish. But again, you have to define the word how we defining tally. Exactly, the how you tell me. How are we defining talented? I think it's athleticism is trying to do. Because now we're trying to make the argument Zion is the most talented player that Duke has ever had. But if I'm saying total game, I'm taking Grant Hill. Yes. Jay Williams, had a chance to be a really special player there too. I mean Leitner to me it depends on he doesn't jump over people. He's not gonna blow by you. But if there was a game on the line, and you said, I can have Leitner I can have Zay on or Grant Hill. Anybo-? I'd take I'd take Leitner over anybody in modern college basketball history with a game online. Right. Yes. I define the word talent a lot more broadly than than other people..

"State car John Moran will declare for the NBA draft tonight. I believe he led the nation. How about this is this is this is like. I won't say it's completely like who is the kid from Oklahoma that what's the hawks trae, Trey wingo. Yeah. Trae young. Yeah. That John Mirant led the nation ten per ten assists per game. Did you know that he is almost is good as trae young? I mean, and that's the thing. Like the thing that people forgot about trae young guess shooting is his vision. And the thing that people forget about John Moran within Zeph lettuce system is that he really adds a ton. So one of the analysts was telling us the way he passes even is somewhat amazing with both hands. And how he could put it on a just a dime. We had someone on recently told us that I feel like Fred Hubner. But do we need this like do? I need an announcement from Java rant like, I get it. You're going to the league you're going to be the number two overall. You should enjoy it. What what do you do Prescott wheel and go? This is happening. I know but just like in highschool you announced which college ago, and do you make an official announce next ever because people don't know what college are gonna go to this. Everybody knows he's gonna it'd be it'd be different. If you type a press conference to say, he was staying that would be more 'climactic this day. I don't need the celebration of John. Let me ask you a question. Well, one of your favorite artists has a press conference to tell you that there is drawn where they just put it in a tweet. Okay. Anyway. So he's going to announce this later today shack says that Jaanus onto Toco is better than he was at the age of twenty four different players. Right. I mean, he says he's yeah. Different players in a serious note. I don't know if you saw this earlier Matthew Stafford quarterback for the Detroit Lions, I his wife has announced that she has a brain tumor made the announcement on her Instagram account says she'll have brain surgery, quote, I'd be lying. If I said, I wasn't completely terrified of brain surgery. I am terrified of them. Opening my head is what has she described it? I'm terrified of losing my hearing them terrified of losing facial function. I'm terrified of far worse things that could happen. And I'm terrified that. I won't take the time.

We were out at twin peaks and Warrenville on Thursday. And then shoeless Joe's in Addison on Friday. Had a great opportunity to spend some time with a lot of very loyal listeners. We we had a blast. We gave away a trip to Cancun each those days with the pop shot top shot competition, who is awesome. They did it bracket style into p ones on the Friday went down to the wire. And it was decided by one point. It was gay and Kramer, Kramer Kramer's. A big season cubs season ticket holder wasn't the Cosmo Kramer, not Cosmo Kramer, Kramer, one in both days. We gave away a trip was great Cancun at the Rio. So we had a yeah. Got a lot of fun watching basketball. I ass kicked in the pop shot contest with you. Yes. But it wasn't like I wanted to make sure that it wasn't like a fluke. Yeah. Rematch. We matched. Yeah. One hundred and thirty this get you look at me. Was impressive. So I thought at times. The tournament was a little a little boring. During the week Heller, Utah a little bit the ones the great upsets, it's very chalk. Liberty was an upset. There were like a couple of splash moments. But I thought the best moment of the tournament. So far. Duke and UCF and UCF last night. No, I agree with that. I mean, again as we were talking earlier with Carmen, Freddie. I stand by it. Look, I mean Duke may end up winning this title, but you'll always look to in in any title run where where good fortune shines down on you. And I've talked about it with the cubs of two thousand sixteen. They were the best team in baseball. But didn't they need some good fortune? Of course, even good teams the best teams in their respective sports. Still need the ball bounce their direction. And I would say they had more than one occasion of of the events going their way when you had an opportunity to really kind of take another step towards victory with that alleyoop dunk. Oh, Johnny Dunkin's kid missed. And then the then Duke immediately took the ball down the court and hit a three. So it was a fine. What do you think dockings will think more about? Ms that that put back I thought that put back was rolling in a. Yeah. Just missed that. And then the alleyoop the alleyoop is is it's over right? If they make that alleyoop time there was still time. But you know, you're not back in transition. Reddish doesn't maybe get the look from three that he got you know, you're setting your defense a little bit better. I listen to chip in would have been a tremendously athletic play. But I would say that. I mean, at least in terms of agreed, quote, unquote, mistakes missed dunk alleyoop was was Huron want it deflect. It had deflated me. I was watching it looked like a perfect pass mishandled. It wasn't one. Yeah. I wasn't one cheering against Duke. Like you were asking earlier. Now, I have a bet with cap that Duke won't win took the field. He's got two. And then cap went ahead and pick Duke to get knocked out by Michigan state. I don't know. But. I thought that was weird. Like, he's got Virginia winning it all. But yet he bet you he took Duke over the field. Yes. But yet he didn't pick Duke is his title. That's the essence of Duke in the final against North Carolina North Carolina beating Duke in the final I wasn't cheering against too. I you know, what I subscribe to the your theory of more something more better more Duke in the NCAA tournament, more better. Well, I think more specifically. That's why I don't get. We could forty minutes of Zion. Here refer another game to just see what this piece can do. Well to dream a little bit more about getting him here in Chicago. Right. So if for whatever reason UCF was able to hold on Zion doesn't advance in. Due course, homes ion is connected to Duke. So for me, they're one in the same, right? So more Duke more better because of Zion. Plus, they get a chance to see RJ Barrett. More right. And Cam radish all through one of the three may be a bowl. That's right. You shouldn't be shocked. If one of the three turns out to be a bowl because radish will be lottery pick. He may go down to six or seven or wherever he goes. The bulls may tumble that far. Maybe the bulls finished with a top three pack, and then you've gotta decide John rant is r j Barrett. And that's why I was ruining for Murray state. I'd Murray state in the Sweet Sixteen and they were completely outclassed by Florida. Stay Florida state's athlete one through twelve or however, many guys in the middle to that are very tall and very athletic. Look Duke, Duke, squeezes SC gets by UCF seventy seven seventy six they shot forty percent from behind the arc which is better than what they normally shoots. Right. So I still feel that there's going to be a moment in his terminent where they don't shoot the three as well. Because the story with Duke all year has been they don't shoot the three. Well, they shot the three well and still almost got beat. So for me are better than they normally shoot it for me. I still I still think that there could be trouble ahead for them. They're gonna have a game where they don't shoot the three that. Well, and we'll see if they. Still come out on top the other breaking news that we just told you about ten minutes ago is it. It is official the bears and Packers will be opening the NFL season the opener for the banners and the Packers that's the opener for the NFL with a one hundred season for the bears. They're going away from the Super Bowl champion getting to host the first game. The bears will be the host of the first game on the lake front as we've been sort of thinking the way it's going to go Thursday night football Soldier Field. It's gonna be awesome. Can't wait for that. Or are you going to go to the game? We're on the air. I mean, I'm hoping we can if we're broadcasting from there. I would I mean that's going to be a tough ticket. But I would I would like to. Yes. Are you going to? I I don't know. I can't plan that far in advance. Gotta be broadcasting from the museum campus that day. Or from what's the? The scout. Let's let's let's get in the scout. My guess is. I'm going to have some television duties with ABC seven. So I probably won't be able to go to the game. So but. It would define game to go to house already backing. Lock already doesn't want to commit to something on a weeknight Jean grecko to stick at work comes first. And like, I said, my guess is to happen. Four win. You know, what maybe I'll just blow off the show to and just go to the game. Because work doesn't matter. Centennial Waddell, you're wearing you're an alumni a pullover. Listen, if we're going to get we're going to go that far and surprised Sylvia hasn't put in for the day off. That's true. It is a big football. You'll have time take. Do you do three one two three three two three seven seven six, and we got lots of baseball to talk. It's opening day week both cubs and the White Sox. Open up on Thursday. We played some Rick Hahn for you. And we'll talk plenty of baseball today with with a lot going on really with the cubs, maybe making some culture changes with recon accusing Twitter of botching some deals but back to the tournament. I got this tweet a lot when it's because I like a lot of bowls fans. I love college hoops. But what I love to do is scout the next big thing the next ball possible bowl. And then, you know, look at Zion and last year like everyone loved deter par tray with with all the exposure comes a lot of guys who wanna tear things down. And and you basically got zion's every move this year they even have Zion Cam right now. ESPN picked up like everyone in their game. Schulman was doing every one of his games with Bilas. But. A lot of people. Some people tweeted me saying jazz, a better fit Sylvie. And I even got a tweet saying that Josh's the better all around player, and like I have to take exception with that like John Moran. Yes, Kim distribute and he can help make your offense better. Like to me a point guard like John Mirant is gonna make not only your team better. But a guy like Lauri Markkanen better when people don't have to when you have to worry about a guy that good that athletic. Larry's going to get better looks all day long. But to say better all around. Let's start here that what's more all around in a two way player. I was gonna say Zion. Williamson is is an elite defensive player. Yes. He's elite and transition. He made another one of those those baseball passes one handed baseball passes in this win over UCF as well. I. Has the bounce pass? Yeah. I mean, it's I don't know how you can make that statement. I mean, if you take them and you evaluate them. I would tell you the Zion. Williamson is much better all around the John Moran. Josh Miranda good a defender is he is good. No. He's actually a really bad defense. So how can you say that John Marantz better overall player when Zion? Williamson is a difference maker on both ends Zion shot fifty percent from the field yesterday and their win and scored thirty two points and had eleven boards in their win over North Dakota state. He shot seventy five percent from the field scored twenty five points. Yeah. And and look he is handles have to get a little better. He's got shoot the three a little bit better. He he may be a little bit of a Twitter. But guys like this athletically, don't come around often what I would say to you is is. What what watching John Mirant did for me as a bulls fan is allow me to X Helen again, we're playing in the dream world right now K? So this is the disclaimer that if you didn't get the number one pick put you somehow found a way to get the number two pick while I would be disappointed because I'd prefer Zion. Williamson the the consolation prize of John Moran. How he fits with your team? I would not be upset. I'd be happy. I would rather have Zayn Williamson. But if the Chicago Bulls were able to secure the number two overall pick, and they used it on John Moran. I don't know where they're at. Maybe they would use it on our air. But they use it on John Mirant. I would be very happy as a bulls fan. Do you think it's a slam dunk me too? And I'm with you totally. I would throw a party at the bulls end up with the number two pick. Yes. I would be up a little bit upset that. It's not Zayat. But John Moran. I love. I I love the kid. We're watching a highlight right now of him. I mean, you've seen what this kid's been able to do in two short years from going really not on recruiting on recruited, Marie states. The only team that gave him a look then South Carolina got laid. He's played. A you wits ion at South Carolina. They're both from South Carolina to now. The kid did a lot of people are comparing to Russell Westbrook. Young Russell Westbrook. I would throw a party if I got number two. Throw a party every time. I do number two as well. Go ahead. I'm sorry. Our, but that's a lot. That's a lot of parties. You're right. But I wanna know with would we have ourselves a debate with R J versus Josh. Slam dunk t Derrick rose, and Michael Beasley back in the day. I don't think so I think I don't think. No..

"I'm up here in Connecticut. Right peek behind the curtain Hartford gets a first round action. First time in twenty one years. They've had it. It's a big deal. Now, I've gone in Nashville a few times first round games are fun. And you know, down in Nashville the Bill you can pay somebody basically, and you guys do like a barstool swap. So while you're in a while you're sitting at the bar and other person's watching the game. You know, you like hold the stool, and you just go back and forth. They've got it all worked out for the alcohol now. Yes. Nine in Horford. You know, again a game. And you got thirty minutes to get it done. So these games really sold. Well, it hasn't been here for longtime. Be we got a couple of big match ups. So the NCAA tournament game between villain. Oh, Vince, Saint Mary's. It tipped off to an almost empty arena. Because frankly fans of the Wildcats made the four hour drive from Philly to Hartford, we're all lined up at all the fans were there, but the metal detectors were their security arena. It took them forever to get it open to get emptied. So they could refill the stadiums in the afternoon session out, and it took them so long that all the people ready for the night session. We're standing outside as the game tipped off. And so the sixteen thousand seat XL center was almost sold out for that game may have actually been sold. But it didn't really get full until late in the first half. They were they were angering they were angry, you know. And I don't I don't blame them because I looked the other day an all session passed three hundred and fifty bucks to go to all the games for the bad. They're gonna get some very unhappy calls afterwards trying to get some money back. Now, they are. In the meantime, they're actually they're getting one of the match ups that I think a lot of people were were excited for with Villanova and Saint Mary's into. It's a close one. It's a thirty two. Twenty eight and a half Saint Mary's up on the defending champs. So we'll see how long Villanova's rain into the defending champion also runs at this point. That's about the only game that's close right now. Again's Agha's just destroying a fairly Dickinson and Kentucky is destroying Abilene Christian. So the only other game going on right now Florida is up by eight on Uva in the second half. But also in Hartford part of the reason that everybody went chummy rant. And we all knew that the Marquette's versus Murray state was going to be a big game because Marcus Howard, John Moran or two of the best scores in the country. John Morand is absolutely studies going to be top three pick in the NBA draft. According to most destinations and Sarah. He didn't he didn't disappoint. He came out and had an electric day. And it's one of those I opening moments where we're all reminded that mid major can still give absolute incredible basketball talent. Yeah. And as you said earlier like we almost didn't even get John Mirant attorney, right, Tom. And I believe as you said there were only or maybe we heard it on the. Earlier only two of the top ten scorers in the NC double layer in the tournament and they're facing off against each other. And so this was a game that we were all kind of really looking forward to in terms of explosive scoring and boy did job Mirant show up and make it what we expected for him. I mean, he gets a triple double. And he gets a that's the first NCW triple double since two thousand twelve of them a hem point out, by the way. Because one of my great Twitter follows pointed this out, we should say men's that's good. 'cause as Natalie wander points out Sabrina s q how to triple double in the first round of the tourney last year. And also there have been a couple very recently spent the logic had one in two thousand fifteen skied skyler Diggins had one recently. So a lot of the ladies have been cleaning up. We just got. I guess we've got to get them on track here with the triple doubles. That's a fair point..

Who is now on the LSU roster and their interim coach Tony Benford. Hey, if the last two weeks or getting any easier, I don't know about easy. He's your help. I think we're still in a routine.

You guys had a routine at all I don't think he's got the guys I think now custody coaches not around right now again, I just get back to the ownership. I think every every chimps I've been associated with you've always always about the players and they're taking on a bunch of players from Yale who can score the Ivy league tournament champs. Speaking of scoring one of the best matchups of the first round. It's the five twelve matchup in the west regional between Marquette and Murray state and the racers featuring John Moran. Who's got an opportunity to the first ever to have twenty points a game Tennessee game. And nobody knew we was coming out of high school come from being overlooked in high school and not receiving that much attention. There was times. I question myself without good enough.

Deep Dive into March Madness

"To this point. We've got Abilene Christian beating Kentucky. We have seen the whole over walford. And we have Georgia state over Houston. All upsets is it your belief that any of those could actually happen. I would say you might as well just go and put money on those because if any of those hit you guys are going to be rich your need. The giants sponsor the show. So. Look, I think I don't know you say you had Wofford or seeing hall winning that game. We have Seton Hall. Seton Hall is winning that game. Yeah. Like, I think that's one that could realistically happen. I will say that while you know, me the supposed- expert isn't picking Georgia's state like I don't think it's inconceivable that they win that game. They they have no probably have the best player on the floor. They have a kid named DeMarcus Simmons who's going to play in the NBA at some point. He he actually he averaged eighteen a game this year and his numbers are actually down a little bit. So I don't know that I would be the guy to pick Abilene Christian over to Turkey. If that's where the darts are going. I do think you're right. Yeah. The the dogs are feeling it and might be by the way, we should tell everyone that you're biased can you? Tell everyone the name of your book. Please. Oh, yeah. No. I had a book about Kentucky basketball. You know, what I was gonna say to you was is that when you say nobody knows what they're doing. So I I said this on another radio interview this morning is there's a reason that they offer a billion dollars for a perfect bracket every year, and nobody wins it. So I think that as much as I'd like to say that the hours and days, I've spent in front of the TV and talking to coaches and talking to you know, is that it's all worthwhile. When I fill out the bracket. I don't know that throwing darts at a wall isn't just a better option than what I've been doing. Thank you very much. Would you like to be with us right now as we select a couple more games? Yes. Okay. I tell me what you think real quick just give me like fifteen seconds or less on Ohio State versus Iowa State. So I always state they got three or four pros on that team. They could legit make the Sweet Sixteen or elite. I wanna be surprised they could legit lose to Ohio State. And I would it be spread. Okay. So if you wouldn't be surprised by anything. This is a a pressure free throw that I'm about to make Ohio states the eleven I was states the six so rat is Ohio State Brown will be Iowa State. Here we go. We got read. Again, we got nothing but upset so Ohio State is going to defeat. I was day. But you don't think that's crazy. I don't think it's crazy. So state hit Ohio State. Yeah. We've got nothing. We've take four games so far. It's all upsets, I don't know why I'm hitting hitting all here on the board. There you go out to Vegas. It all read their. Let's you know. So no, I don't I don't think that's insane. At all. I mean, Ohio State plays in the big ten. They laid great teams all year. They've been good teams Iowa State again. These are the facts that are going to be meaningless when my bracket blows up, but they lost five out of their last six games in the regular season. They got hot in the last week. I don't think it's insane. At all that Ohio State would pull that upset. Okay. Let's do one more Jimmy ten seconds on Kansas versus northeastern. Kansas. I'll say this hits read I won't be surprised really was Kansas was a biz mole on the road this year. So they had a couple injuries. A couple of suspensions. You know, one guy's not playing, you know, guardian took some money and got caught by the FBI. And so they went like one in seven away from home in their last eight games. So it waiting their last eight games away from home. So it would not surprise me. If on a neutral court, they got upset I'd hear it goes, Kansas versus northeastern. Okay, Kansas is going to survive Kansas is going to win round one. So we do have our first favorite of the first round. And will be Kansas defeating northeastern very exciting stuff. I'm I'm glad that you're you're right in the middle here, though that you're you're becoming one of us us us. Every man college basketball fans were just like, yeah. I'd this could go either way. I'm glad you're saying that right now. Well, I remember a few years ago. First of all my bracket is always the worst one. And everyone's like, what are your picks? And I'm like, you don't really want my picks. But I remember, you know, I was talking with our buddy Colin cowherd three years ago. And he said do you get mad when everybody else that doesn't watch like me has a better bracket than you? And I said, you know, Colin, I'm a lot like Bill Belichick. I just focus on myself. I don't worry about the outside noise. What it does drive me a little bananas that all these all these men hours. I put loving the sport. And it's all for nothing come March. I wanna ask you this. This is a conversation that was happening here at the office about an hour ago. Which is the best college basketball team in the state of California this year. Oh, man. I feel like I had this conversation. It's obviously not USC. It's not. I'm trying to think, you know, I think it might be UCLA by down. And there's only there's just a letter listeners. All there's only two teams from the entire state of California in this bracket at its UC Irvine, it probably should have been without a major upset. It would have only been one. It's UC Irvine in Saint Mary's that's wild that's wild. I think Saint Mary's would probably went on a neutral court, but I'll tell you what Irvine is one if the dark skew towards Irvine that would not surprise me at all like, I know you said a minute ago. Nobody knows these head coaches follow, blah, all I'm saying is as cow is abysmal in the Pac twelve Russell Turner. Who's the head coach at UC Irvine? They could be they could do themselves a favor to give him a call, by the way, he coached at Stanford. He was in assistant with the Golden State Warriors. He knows the bay area that guy can coaches, you know, what off I don't know that he'd be a great interview for your show. You just want more entertaining. College basketball. You should have your. Your buddies over Cal get him a call. Hey, while we're on it. What are we doing here with with Pac twelve sports? What's what's what's happening right now? So as anti Pac twelve is anybody as everybody because I think the bottom line is we had the worst combined year ever since they've been recording numbers in wins and losses for Zona and UCLA in the same season. We gotta season where one's been bad. We've had a season where another has been bad. But we've never had a season where they're collectively as bad. And so what I always say is, you know, we would be talking about how bad the ACC was if Duke in North Carolina had historically their worst seasons combined ever the big twelve. Did it feel a sexy this year because Kansas wasn't good? And I just think look Arizona. They have the number one or three class coming in. They're going to get right? But if errors Zona was just what they've been in UCLA was just what they've been all of a sudden, you add two more top twenty five teams in you. Then potentially have five bitch the NCAA tournament. Nobody feels bad now with that said, I can't really speak for football, which is a total mess, but basketball, I think it's cyclical I think they'll be fine. I see that you said getting back to the brackets the Tennessee and Michigan state where the two teams that got screwed. Why why do you think that? So two different reasons. I think in general nobody really has a big gripe. But Mark, you know, for people who don't follow this stuff three hundred sixty five days a year in the past the committee has kind of made this big stink about we do wanna keep teams close to home because you know, we don't want these student athletes to travel, whatever buffalo, blah. I know where you stand on all that. But they always have given preferential treatment to the higher seeded teams. It's a very simple concept you bust your butt. You're awesome all year, you shouldn't have to play in somebody's backyard in so Tennessee could potentially in round to have to play Cincinnati in Columbus, Ohio, which is only about an hour from Cincinnati. I just think that's totally unfair for a team. That's done. You know, they they've been awesome. And it could come down to their basically playing a true road game in the NCAA tournament, you know, after six months of hard work. I just think that's kinda nonsense and then when Michigan state. You know, it's the deal of the committee considered them one of the quote unquote, best number two seeds. So then why are they lined up with the best number one seed, and do it makes absolutely no sense to me. Yeah. That's interesting. All right. Gimme gimme the dark horse that could make some noise who's wearing Cinderella. This year. Well, I'll tell you. I know I know you have a primarily NBA audience Murray state with John Mirant got to be a lottery pick that kid is unbelievable. He average twenty four games scoring led the nation in this. I think he is every bit the real deal. And if you told me he put his team on his back. I'll Steph curry wins to three games basically by himself. It wouldn't surprise me kid is just out of this world. I think whether you follow college basketball, whether you're following the darts. That's a kid to watch out for because he's

"Radio. The player of the week is brought to you by Grainger, let's take a look at the one who got it done. And this week the player of the week brought to you by Grainger is John Miranda who plays for Murray state. I don't want to say he's a great kept secret anymore at this point. Because if you don't do John Miranda's you should by now. But at one point he was a great secret when he was not even getting looked at by Murray state. One of the assistant coaches wants to go get a hotdog or something at the food stand because he was hungry as a concession stand. Then he saw job Moran called the head. Coach Murray state said you gotta come down and see this kid, and they eventually did offer him and his stock is going in the right direction as many people now for most of the year with Zion number one. And then Barrett number two in the draft a lot of these mock drafts that I read now have John Mirant as the number two player expected to go in this summer's NBA draft. He's a sophomore six three bucks. Seventy five has comparisons. To Russell Westbrook. Over the weekend. And this is a game, that's typical form now. But I like to give a little attention here had twenty five points, fourteen assists, eight rebounds in a victory. One of two seventy over eastern Kentucky Murray state is twenty one and four their next game. And the next chance that you could see John Moran play is Thursday at eight pm eastern. So that's definitely going to be one of the stories for the NC double A tournament is John Mirant, and he is the player of the week. And that was brought to.

"And that's RJ Barrett. One of his teammates through averaging twenty four and is nowhere near as a and as he's going to be and then the kid from early stage. John Moran, who I think is Russell Westbrook. And and I think he's going to continue to get better. But I think those are two guys that are going to have to be considered. Plot as well. A really good article from last week after God who wrote it. I don't know if you guys can call it up. I sent it to you guys, Danny and Meller, but I learned a lot about John Mirant reading on how weary came from. And now he was he was very very nobody really want. I believe it came from South Carolina was a player in South Carolina, and no one had him on their recruiting radar and Murray state was like the first program to to one John rant and then late South Carolina got in on it and South Carolina state school wanted him. And he told the the coach at Murray state you were on me from the start. I'm staying I'm going to stay with your program. And you know last year was a good player. No one ever had them in his top twenty for this year's draft. And then what he's been doing in some of the highlights that he's been doing this year. He got hurt the other day and sprained ankle was quite the same. But John Mirant. The kid of Murray state lot of people love can leap out of the gym. He's got one of those. Dunks. I don't wanna go to graphic Meller was about when he was a kid. They would play basketball like a seven foot hoop, and they would like one kid who would dunk with Taunton by hanging on the rim and placing so we got and so he had one of those dunks. Do you know where Murray Murray state is? Yeah. Well, I Murray stay they were arrival of southern I watched Ashraful Maya go up against Popeye Jones in a double overtime. You. Remember Popeye Jew? His son now in NHL. And he played in the NBA was a coach in the NBA for a long time. And it was a we storm the court at Murray state. So yes, I'd been to Murray Kentucky for not only a basketball game. But for a football well done, sir. He's listed as six three and one seventy five. Yeah. He's he's lie. And you wanna go that route the Derrick rose route again, if you would get number one, some people think maybe you should. But the two kids playing Notre Dame tonight. We'll have the game coming up at the top of the hour. It's an ESPN television game. So the cool thing about watching the the the two of them as you can watch one game and knock it out and compare RJ Zion against each other as they play together and Jordan cornet who does great work on the jam and also here he's now working for the company on his college basketball analyst shooter. Unfortunately, his Irish fifteen point dogs in their own here. Mike breys team struggling, but Jordan has seen in person. Zairean in RJ Barrett. So he thought he'd be a good guess for us today. And welcome to the big show, Jordan. How are ya? Yeah. I got the call up. This is what you dream of. So so what do you think right now when you compare the two if the draft were today in the bulls head the number one pick would you want R J Barrett or would you on Zion? Williamson. I mean, I it's become a dope Reiter channel minor cap. I flip it on this one because I was so gung ho that RJ Barrett was guy because of the premium on scoring and what he brings his is one on one guy in isolation, but how efficient die has done. This thing with all the expectations and how he's come in delivered on all fronts. Various wave the impacts the game. Whether it be offensively, whether it be scoring the fall in the official clip, he does whether it be distributing rebounding. I mean, she can literally impact the game in every single area in dominant fashion. I I've seen anything like I heard you guys playing Jay Bilas out of the gate and me and Jay went back and forth on what's the comparison it settled on there's no comparison, and it's not to say he's LeBron James because that's not fair to him. There's just not a body that I've seen a college basketball with the skill set or any level this comparative to what he does Jordan. How concerned are you that his at least statistically his numbers from outside are not great. I know he's got a tremendous field goal. Percentages up by sixty five or sixty seven percent. But he averages two threes per game in his averaging only twenty seven percent from behind the arc in a game at the next level where you do have to be pro fish. From outside is that a concern? It's not a huge concern. I'd actually go the other way with it say it speaks to his maturity understanding that inside yard is where it can do is damage. There hasn't been a lot of volume in starts with attempts. Their recent. It's interesting though, Tommy has sort of go to the three point shot a little bit as remained inefficient there. But it's starting to show a willingness to go out there. And I think that's. Of him trying to show the scouts that. Hey, this is a part of my game that I have to prove their with everybody's comparing him to RJ Barrett. Prospect keep in mind, RJ three point numbers are nothing to show. Yeah. I think this speaks to both guys that's the place where they can grow. But it's a place where you look at their shot and their delivery. It's something that that can easily be cleaned up. I mean, let's not forget, I am not comparing abroad, but you're saying phenomenon coming in LeBron stroke has improved for the time. He came down. So I think that growth will be there. So you expect that he'll be better and more improved shooting from distance. What if to play the what if game it doesn't improve dramatically how huge impact how big an impact can be? If he's not a threat from a serious threat from from distance. He could still be dominant. I think he truly should still be dominant. I mean, his ability to impact that game defensively, they just watched tonight and Notre Dame's great with the basketball, but watch how he's so disrupted. Their weather deflects. It are just shooting a gas getting in the in the passing lane and translating that defense and offense. Second chance opportunities. He needs to show what ability to go. Right. He loves that left hand going less. But nobody's been able to stop it. He moves so well with his size that the damage that he doesn't side yard. I still don't think there's anybody in the league even links Beck in Stockton for getting to where he wants to go. But it's the relentless voter. And this is what we talked about a little bit too is there's no left in his game. So he won't be productive in a forty eight minute clip at the next level forty in college because he doesn't stop. He's gonna find a way to be productive. That's that's what I was. So impressed with Jordan like you said, and we were taxiing off the air there there been a lot of prospects in any sport that I've watched too you could see in the midst of a game in navy. This doesn't happen for coach K because they'll pull ya but who loaf a little bit or who don't get back on defense. But not only is he looking to get the offensive rebound tip dunk. Then on defense. He's. Is looking like Jordan said to get the block shot. He's looking to pass. He'll go on the outside everything like to me, Jordan. It was to get that athleticism with that high motor to me. There's so much there that you just love to see. Yeah. Absolutely like watch. And this is really obscure. But he's having a great year. Watch. John Collins the Wake Forest the guy that came out early and what he's doing in Atlanta. This is a guy with no Goto move. He's a big guys probably six maybe ten bit taller design. No doubt. There's no coats who move. He's just active. The got numbers like nineteen and thirteen a game. It's absurd because that activity makes them productive. And he has nowhere near the skill set the silent possessive let up lack thereof that makes me believe that this guy was gonna come in and give you around twenty and panicky. Steals and assists. His vision is is so under sold in his passing ability is it's watched him play. I'm more ruled at it. It's just the IQ the timing. The understanding of where other pieces are round him and how to make them and elevate their game and put them in positions to succeed. It's incredible. So what was the last college player that you remember who is this heavily hyped? Or who was this much of a guy that you said, boy, this guy is going to be great to that reminds you of him. I know not a comp as far as the type of player but the hype involved. The hype is hard. I recall anybody with this kind of hype. And and on the spot, I guess the guy that comes to mind right away. And it's only because he did college obviously is LeBron and mellow Skift. But Carmella went to college for that one year when he went to college everybody somebody gets out you got to be a credible. And look Carmelo as of late is caught a lot of flack, rightfully so some heavy contracts that hasn't produced and now he's just one of the great doesn't want to walk away. Femur was a hall of fame basketball player. And this was a guy that came into Syracuse. It's like, wow, we've delivered with a national championship Zion on a good pass and potentially achieve that. But they come into the league. And really be a major factor. I could be missing guys I've taken always at the two thousand three but it's hard to that hype. And I'm telling you it pales in comparison to the desire on the Snyder on I mean. There is a concerted effort mentioned dukes in non Duke broadcast. Just because there's such an appetite for this young, man. I I mean, they are the black beetles. It's unbelievable when they go from Jim Jim people are showing up. I mean, this is Notre Dame there fifteen point dogs that place will be packed and anybody who likes to college basketball, it'd be watching tonight and the inclusion as four door Jordan have you seen the kid from Murray state. And if so what do you think? I mean, Jay Jay is saying what a lot of people are saying I too. I agree. He's Russell Westbrook. I mean, he's a video game the stuff that he does it. It's. Stuff. Like, it's unbelievable. I'd get Chicago. You hear Murray state? You wanna you wanna turn down the volume because you don't want to think about another Murray state products, cough cough campaign. I get it. But and you talk about the most exciting guys in college basketball intelligence, John the rant is right up. There was I am Williamson. They're just playing on the stage that has but this guy at six three ripple rebound in traffic. Most the trees push it with you know, tie loss and speed. And then don't go on you like Vince Carter in his prime. It's six three and everybody worries about his physicality, and what he doesn't have there. But let's not forget, Kevin Durant. Still couldn't push one thirty five and he's one of the most dominant players in the league. So you don't have to be the strongest to play the game is lettuce, ISM laced and speed is on match. All right. So AD Anthony Davis as he wants out and cap said that. He'd before getting all the assets and trading it in for a D..

"We see in in the NBA great time in patient knowing that he's running out at the three. He's going to be available. But right in his Lee glove Craig play. I college hoops down Murray state's John Mirant looking like classic Vince Carter. Oh my goodness. That's Carter dunk was so nasty. I'll never forget that one this one right here. This guy's not going to forget this one. I got people texting me said, hey, Chris last time. You went over this highlight. You miss them stuff. I was like, no it's Friday. I ain't trying to get fired home trying to semi vic- stuff. We see what happens there. See, you know, what happened? You know, what my reaction watching? That highlight is though how this young man could've avoided it what try to block for the block. Now. That's what Nick right would have done, and I wouldn't want to. Charge. Not to talk about. No, you told me that Utah. You're not one of the executives shit. Almost. Phone call from one of the exact to what we're looking at on the TV screen. Cowboys Amari Cooper was a big part attorney around Dallas a season since joining the Cowboys. The team is eight and two Saturday who'll be facing a keep to leave and Marcus Peters. We face twice a year in Oakland. If he asked him that is definitely an advantage for them. Obviously their tendencies, but at the same time, they know mine, so. I think I think it definitely helps me, you know, play those guys twice a year over I know, I know them in and out how they play. Mabel to tell like, my teammates quarterback, you know, their tendencies, so definitely. Yeah. Good question. I don't think you know, me. I love that it works one way. But it doesn't work the way. So that's an interesting point. How much will experience really factor into this? The fact that he knows those guys pretty well. He played them twice a season. I think it's important that people understand that especially when you play against people twice a year to Mark Cooper talked about as far as in your division. It started for me when I was in college because we used to get great scouting reports on the defensive backs, and we've got a lot of big ten defensive backs Purdue Wisconsin, Iowa Michigan guys that we're going to be playing in NFL, but it started early for me playing against Purdue and Rod Woodson my coach point out to me, Chris you're going to be playing against this guy for a long long time. So once I start facing them, my freshman year, you start figuring out tendencies, and you watch clips them you'd like to you know, what their strengths are what in the weaknesses are what they liked to do. So rotten are not only are college careers mirrored each other. But then are pro careers, married. Each other. He's one of my one of my teammates there in. Football hall of fame. So I was able to experience early how much it will help you. So you start to get a book I taught Randy moss to Bill to do it. Even we went to the Pro Bowl. We would go over the defensive backs there what we knew about him. So he started to develop a book on the on the defensive backs that he would be facing not only that season but throughout his career. So Mark Cooper. He does have Intel. I like the fact that he realizes to tone reporter, it's not an advantage for me because they face me also..
