"I'm amazed that people who get paid to watch this are surprised with what they see. Ben Simmons is not changing any time soon. No. What? No. How is it John Moran can all of a sudden learn how to shoot threes in the off season, but Ben Simmons can't figure out how to shoot free throws in two years. I just can't just put in the work. There's a fear of failure that Ben Simmons has. That John Moran does not have. There are certain players who aren't afraid to fail. And you have to have that mentality. You have to go out there and John morant, we kept thinking, well, if he adds, some kind of respectful jumper is going to be unstoppable because you've got to pick your poison. And he's a good three point shooter this year, shooting 45%, I think, from three. Now, granted, shooting maybe 5 a game, but he's not afraid to fail. Ben Simmons is afraid to fail. But to me, not knowing anything about either of them, right? One of the guy who is more confident and not afraid to fail is probably the guy putting in the work. And the guy who's afraid to fail and not confident probably isn't putting in the work. I kind of the way that that stuff works. I get the feeling Ben Simmons just thinks that he's granted stardom. You know, when people go, hey, he's an all star. Okay. He does have talent. He was the number one pick in the driveway. People are like, man, he can play defense. He can pass. He can, yes, that's what he's been able to do. And I'll go back to LSU when I said on this show, when I watched him play, I think he's shooting with the wrong hand. And people said all you're crazy. I still think he's shooting with the wrong hand. Yeah, Mars. With John Moran and Ben Simmons, I think all you need to know is that John morant got Murray state to the tournament and LSU didn't go with Ben Simmons. And he was the number one pick in the draft. Great point.

"That thinks they can fix them, not the lasting because if you're the last team, you might end up holding the bag. Yeah, and with Eric Gordon as well, I feel like that they're in a position where that's the case. Eric had a really great year this year. Eric also has a long history of injuries. Unfortunately, which is part of the reason that, you know, the market was likely a bit muted on him this off season. I felt like they should have this trade deadline. I felt like they should have moved him at the trade deadline just to confirm that they could get some sort of value for him. I think they ran a real risk by not doing that. The risk could pay off this off season. We'll see. What do you think these guys are worth? Do you think that Houston will get back a first round pick for either player? I think Woods values probably a little bit below the first, but you could get there easily taking back some negative money. And I'd say Gordon, yeah, late first is probably about right for him. Amy, guys that can shoot and capably defend and are at least wingy, are so valuable in the league right now. And you've seen them all throughout the league. And not only are they valuable, there aren't that many that are available. And so that is the $20 million price tag will make somebody queasy, but the lack of having another option will make them queasy. So I think they could get a first there. Yeah. No, I think I'm with you on Eric Gordon being able to get a first. Let's go to Memphis. My sleeping giant. I love this team. I love where Memphis is right now. The first question here is a very simple one. And I think we just have to start it. You extend John morant very quickly the soft season correct..

"If the two of them do that and they get the rest from their bench in any way, shape or form or the rest of their starting 5. But anything from their bench, they'll be very tough to be. Okay. So, I'll say that's an overreaction. I kind of be in the driver's seat in the east when Giannis can actually beat anybody. I mean, you heard what win horse said in the first hour that Yanis can beat anybody for out of 7 in any spot, western conference opponent in the finals or anybody in the east, so. You got one more? NBA. I got a couple more. Let me give you one more. We talked about the new poll of Georgia. That's all we both saw that. I don't know what that was. I've never seen anything like that. But the Memphis Grizzlies are 25 this season. When jaw doesn't play. So because of that, the grizzlies are just fine without John Murray. That's absolutely ridiculous. They need John morant in a big way, and I think they're going to without him, you know what's happened to them tonight by the warriors. I think that's the way that that's going. Yeah. Oh yeah, I don't feel very good for the grizzlies chances without him. So that's a total overreaction. All right, we got two more quick ones for you. Okay. Chris Paul, the last two games. Yes. Has not played well. Let's just call that like we see it. And if that Chris Paul continues to show up, the Mavs can absolutely take the Sunday. I agree with you. What if Lucas starts just popping in it? What if Luke had pops in 50 in a game 5? That's the stuff. I just don't know, I'm just throwing out there. Absolutely..

"So the series goes to their style and you have to beat them at their own game to sort of ascend to a higher status. I don't know. Maybe this is how they're building up what they know is going to be the future of two franchises. Giannis just signed back up. He's committed long-term to Milwaukee. There's a good vibe there. Milwaukee's a team with a, you got to take your hats off for a small market. They do have a big fan base. So nobody's nobody's really hurting even though that's not a major market. And Giannis basically told the NBA. I'm not going anywhere. So you got to live with this market. If you're going to have me be the heir apparent type, you know, I'm going to be one of the MVP, dot, dot, dot. So if you're going to do that, part of me thinks that they're also building this bad blood so that there's a rivalry for years to come. Yeah. Yeah, you got to protect the sacred cow, right? That's kind of where we're at. And it does feel like there's a lot of that going on here where the rest of the package from Milwaukee is and all that attractive to look at. Giannis is his story and his demeanor and his, you know, all that is is really, really marketable from the NBA's perspective. His game, I think, less so, but that's not to say he's not marketable. I mean, he's more fun than Shaq took market. But he's not, he's not John morant, in terms of the excitement and the, you know, he's not Steph Curry. So yeah, so there's a balance there, right? That they're trying to strike and try to make him be that guy. And unfortunately, we're in the middle of where the kind of the crosshairs of that, right? Yeah. So do you think if they get through this series that it'll be a lot easier going? Oh, right. Yeah. Don't you feel like they're just going to all of a sudden they're going to be able to play a little bit looser. I think and yet they're also going to be able to like their defense is going to be that much stronger because they've already gotten their butts kicked like as long as nobody goes down with an injury, which I'm seriously concerned about. As long as nobody goes down with an injury, don't you think they get through this series and they kind of become a wrecking ball to the finals? Yeah. I think that they are the way that they defend Milwaukee. I mean, the way they defend is kind of like playing a team that plays zone. I mean, I feel like it's so it still zone kind of somebody's own principle that feels like and what they do. It would switching. They're switching, but they're loading up someone to the pains and all that. It just feels like they're it's kind of played in zones up all the time. And you just have to kind of think a certain way to play against that team. Whereas playing the nets were kind of almost playing like a regular season T because they don't scheme up so much..

"At also, yeah, but I'm there and then I think the other would take is like you shouldn't even be suspended at all because what about draymond green and there are different situations. The NBA handles everything case by case. Exactly. And the NBA, there is no precedent for this whole idea of, well, you're out for as long as the other player is out. That gets messy. That gets messy if you go down that path. You get to do, you know, what happens if it's, I don't know, if it's Steph Curry, accidentally injures somebody else and gets and gets suspended for it. And then he's out for as long as that player is out and it's maybe it's the 12th man on another team. And then you've got competitive and balanced. It doesn't work. Yeah, I mean, think about this one. What would then keep the warriors from bringing back Peyton at any point before the end of the series? If they're like, hey, a bit hurts the grizzlies more to not have Brooks than it does us to have Gary Payton a second. And I'm not saying that's the case, but that's exactly why they don't do it. Because it seems to start that kind of gamesmanship and playing games with it. And oh yeah, his back still soared. His arm is ankle his leg, whatever it is. So yeah, I mean, just the reality is, don't play reckless stupid basketball in none of this stuff. Don't do dumb things. Just don't do dumb things. How big of an impact is this on the series? I mean, John morant went and dropped what 47 with Gary Payton the second out. Now I'm not saying that he would have stopped them on all of those jobs a tremendous tremendous player. But it was noticeable that the warriors didn't have somebody in there to defend him. So he's out for the series. I mean, more than the series, does this change anything for you as far as the outcome goes? Maybe a little bit, maybe it goes 7 instead of the 6 that both picked. Warriors and at least I think that's what we both picked. I don't know. I don't think it's going to change anything really. I think Gary Payton in the second is a good player, but the warriors. They've got enough depth to work around it. They'll go a little more offense, heavy now, my assumption is Jordan poor turns to the starting 5, and they just go back to that grouping, which has been really good. And then on the other side, I think Dylan Burke's being out the game. It definitely hurts Memphis, but I don't think it's a killer by any means because I think the thing for them is they've played a lot of games this year without doing books. He missed well over half the season. But three quarters of it baby. So they're used to playing without him. So I think it's just get back at it and game three on Saturday and see where we go. Who's hurt worse from this from losing? Who is hurt worse losing Memphis losing Dylan Brooks or the warriors losing Gary Payton? Memphis. I think just think Brooks is a better key player. But I don't know that this is going to have a huge impact. If Memphis for game three for certain, right? But then after that, it's obviously the warriors because Memphis will get Brooks back and then off they go. But if you're the warriors, I think you got to be thinking, hey, our home corps bump here. They got to be feeling pretty good about getting back one one..

"So I don't understand this. I made the case with John, and I don't think you should win. And I don't think he should be top three, and I probably have dropped him now past the top 5 at this point. What I think is really weird is that there's this whole thing about jaws miss games. And Lucas played after this weekend, 5 more games. That's it. Yeah. 5 more games. And Josh is probably not coming back this week. There's no real reason for him too. They've locked the two seed. But look is also probably not going to be ten. I'm assuming Luke is going to play the whole week. I don't think he is. Because I think they're probably going to lock four. Okay. He walks four, it becomes like 7, which is a gap for sure. It's almost 10%. He's a 210, 250 minutes, something in there. It matters. It's just been very weird to me that there's this like John morant has missed all this time. I think that more than that though, too, it's that the grizzlies have been incredibly successful without John Moran. And that's the weird part of this conversation that I don't actually know what to do with in my brain. Yeah, this fundamentally to me gets into like how you look at the NBA regular season. And because this is a big, this is a big deal, I guess that this is a big deal with me with the yogurt thing. I'm making the argument for jokic, not based off of he missed these guys. Look at how hard it was, and instead just based off of no, regardless of who he had and who he didn't, yoga whipped ass every single night. With morant, I've always felt this way. I think it's just very strange, especially in the modern age..

"But that's not the entire season. And I, for me, a lot of it is, I care about those games in November. I care that you came into the season. We're like, we gotta get like, we gotta stay afloat and win games early on. And the ability to do that from day one to me really matters when we get into this conversation because too often it just becomes who's been really good as of late. If the season was two more months and look it kept doing what he did, that's probably enough for him to win, but it's not. And so he's in the situation he's in. The last two guys I want to mention here, and I'm sorry to Jason Tatum. I think he's probably 7th for me in this conversation. And maybe that happened 6. I might have my header the next guy. John morant has missed 20 games. And I just don't know that we can get to the point where we have John Moran this conversation having missed 20 games. So I don't understand this. I'm in the case with John, and I don't think he should win. And I don't think he should be top three, and I probably have dropped him now past the top 5 at this point. What I think is really weird is that there's this whole thing about jaws miss games. And Lucas played after this weekend, 5 more games. That's it. Yeah. 5 more games.

"Of the way I do it at least is, did you play enough games? Yes. Did your team win enough games where you over 500? Yes. Did you win the minutes where you were on the floor? Yes, by how much was it enough for it to be significant? Because like John morant and Luka Dončić are both like plus 3.43 .8. It's not enough. Like joker's at 8 at plus 8. He jumped over Giannis over the weekend. All these things kind of factor in. And so what you kind of come down to at the end of the day, honestly, a lot of this, this would be my biggest pushback on you. Giannis in the early season was without Chris and was without drew and was I without Brooke. And that was a hard environment. I really was. And they still managed to be around 500 and hang and the nuggets were under 500 for a little bit. And that deserves some consideration too. But ultimately like Giannis early performance wasn't nearly as awe inspiring as his middle and late season, much the way with Luca. And Tatum. And so absolutely I would agree with you. Defensively, I'm a little bit less sold on that. So let me go ahead and I'll break this down. I understand your point then nonetheless. I want to make the Joker defensive argument real quick. Yeah. Okay. The metrics work against him, which is really obnoxious. He's first a defensive box plus minus. And so everyone goes, well, that's stupid. You can't use that. And there's almost like a reverse effect here. Again, with the cognitive dissonance. Yeah. I totally agree with you. It is actually very unfair. Like Joker can't be the best offensive player in the league. And then it becomes, he's not even a good defensive player, and I'm like, I'm here to tell you, as somebody that laughed at him as my co host on locked on nuggets. Three years ago, he said, I think nikole yogurts can be as good of a defender in pick and roll coverage specifically as Mark Gasol..

"The last I checked, they were, you know, solidly into the bottom ten in terms of effective field goal percentage, true shooting percentage, all of that, three point percentage. So as we all know, I think the game becomes a little more half court in the playoffs. I think teams will lock in on their offense and really pack the paint and make them shoot the ball from the perimeter. Now John morant doesn't need much space. So even if you're packing the paint, he may find his way in there, but I don't think people are going to give them, you know, 55, 58, 60 points in the paint. That they've been getting. I don't think they're going to get 15, 18, 20 fast break points or 18 second chance points. I think those are things teams can lock into and at least make it a real defensive battle. I think you can make it tougher on Memphis. When you're preparing for a playoff series, then teams have been able to do with a one hour walk through on the day of the game. Yeah. No, interesting. Interesting. And interesting that it is about, in this case, much more than just whether they're young and need to earn their stripes or whatever, that stuff. I assume there's a little bit of that too. And part of being successful in the playoffs is understanding how to adjust in a series where the team is locked in on you too, right? So when if they're going to take away a lot of their transition and the second chance points and they're going to come up the game a little bit, not only is it about whether or not they have enough shooting, but how they even just handle that change in the feel of the game and having to work harder for those points. Well, there's no question. I mean, you know, I think players will tell you, you know, as they go through their first couple of playoffs series whenever that is that it's tough because teams are have much more time to prepare and adjust as the series goes on and take away your strengths and you've got to be able to counter those things, I worry that Memphis.

"I think this is a really good one. All right, that's good. We're on the board. One each. We're on. We're on the board. Okay. My next pick here. Is going to be Jade and ivy. And I understand that this is a this is an easy one. But if Jade and ivy leads Purdue to a final four push, an average is like 22 points a game and 8 assists in goes nuts, right? For some reason. There's going to be a contingent that sees him as the next job Iran and pushes that. I don't think he's that. I don't think he has anywhere near the live dribble passing ability. I don't think he has quite as much explosiveness as what John did. And I think that people who are trying to make that comparison are making the comparison almost solely based off of the way that they look as opposed to their actual games. But you know what? Like, zamoran is super athletic and Jade and ivy is probably going to be a top 7 or 8 athlete among all point guards in the NBA. Maybe even a little bit better than that. He's not John morant John morant is like one of one freak show athletically that's also like one of the 5 best passers or like incredible live dribble decision makers in the NBA. So like there is a difference there I think in overall skill set and I think people kind of forget how good job our hits sophomore season wasn't Murray's ridiculous. And I don't think it's an argument really, but even not conference he had like 30 it can Alabama and 25 against this high major team. Like it was ridiculous. It was putting up like everyone like melted down about Trae Young's numbers rightfully so because Trae Young was unbelievable in his season at Oklahoma, but John morant averaged 25 points in tennis per game..

"The MBA is better than any other sport, arguably, at generating these faces and these names. And I wonder how do you build traditional maybe as an oxymoron? How do you build a tradition, in fact, specifically in the context of a rivalry? Yeah, probably grew up sort of in the similar time frame with you and you think of all the basketball rivalries of the 90s. One of the reasons that that is not as much part of our game is we have so much more player movement now. And that's been intentional because we wanted all 30 teams. The players teams and the fans and those markets to feel like they had a chance to compete and not have the same teams winning championships every year. And in fact, I think we've had 8 different champions in our last 11 seasons. And when you have that player movement and you have those different teams competing, you don't end up with the same two teams playing in the playoffs every year, which is what drove a lot of those rivalries. And so I actually see that as a net positive even though we may miss that rivalry aspect. But I think it all comes, everything comes back to the players. If the players are brought into something, if they're out there competing, if they feel meaning, that energy and that drive exists. Now, maybe our players are a little more collegial with each other today than they were in the past. And so friends off the court. I can see why LeBron doesn't like you, Evan. But I think that's a good thing. We want to engage people not just with the game on the court, but John morant is now a sensation for both his basketball persona, as well as his social media persona. And so those things are good for us in aggregate, even if we've lost that player to player team to team rivalry, but it's not gone, right?.

"I have the Knicks on national TV, not trying to twist the knife, but please take the leakers off national TV. Please, so we can stop getting so much attention. But the dance actually just got bumped too off TV. 'cause John morant does superhuman things every night. Yes. But there's still a bunch, but there's like, there's like a heat bucks game that's on it on leak pass. I want to say it's bulls boxes on league pass this week. So make sure you get your week passed. The rest of the season. So there's some really, really awesome games coming down the stretch. And I'm gonna make a little prediction here, and I'm doing this off the cuff. I think the bulls are gonna start to really slide in the standings. Their schedule is killer the rest of the way. I mean, even in the next week or so, it is just loaded with really, really good teams. So I think there's a chance that I start to slide a little bit in this standing. Especially with the 76ers surging, winners of three in a row. They're only a game back. Yeah, they could. Still waiting for the box to kind of kick it into gear, maybe it's not going to be a thing that happens, but yeah. Yeah, I mean, the bulls are in second right now. There are only three and a half I had a Boston who's in 6th. The Eastern Conference. I'm not saying they're going to slide all the way down there, but they might be fighting for home court versus taught top seed. We'll see. They've surprised me all year, maybe. They continue to do so, but things look like they're set up for them to dip a little. They happen. It's going to be interesting how things close out, particularly in the Eastern Conference, everything is still very, very compact. But oh, hey, in John Moran. Holy cow. Oh, my gosh. What a game. I mean, they just, we can't mention it. I mean, he has that dunk. And I'm thinking, oh my God, that's the play of the night. And then he finishes off the quarter with that insane, like catch and just flip. Whatever that was. That was if you ever played the game like with your Friends growing up tip it, you know what I'm talking about. Sometimes people call it 21 or whatever, but it was basically one of those shots, right?.

"I can't even remember if that's the show, but sometimes girls are just like, it's very important or guys even as like, you know, it's very important, like, bodies is we have to be bodies are really important to me. But like, yeah, that's when you're starting out, but if you're three years into a relationship, that's now your problem guy, it's not neces your problem to deal with it not to just make it her problem and then walk away, like hope you don't cry for the rest of your life. Like now it's your problem. If being physically attractive is important, and I think it is all important, but in the beginning you get to you get to decide what you're going to do, but now you're three years in a relationship. If you want to stay with her, it's not just, you don't just lay that out her feet. You gotta worry about it pal. It's not like you can't just say, yeah, I'm not into this anymore, really. But still love you. And see you for dinner. You can't just lay that out her feet. That's something you're gonna have to deal with. It sounds like he hasn't even really dealt with it. He just kind of said it and walked away, so that's just a red flag. Were you ever mean to your girlfriend, Kyle? No. I don't think so. No, you know, I've said some stuff on a fight that I was like, wow, I could be good at this. If I wanted to, but I'm sorry, I really sorry about that. I won't say that again. But you just get the takes. I was always the uglier one in the relationship, too. Dude, 8 to ten. I was always, I was always the uglier one. 8 to ten, but gipsy ten skull? Hey man, I haven't had a ton of girlfriends. I pick and choose them. And sometimes they've been absolutely awful because of because of the personality part of it. But the last run the last four girlfriends have been pretty and awesome. They've been pretty awesome. If I say so by itself. So but I've always been the other guy. I've never been. I've never been the one who had to say anything or even thought about saying anything. Has anyone asked you to shave off a few LBs? No. Actually, no. Actually no. I think I'd probably make a joke about myself like, no, what are you talking about? It's like, oh, good, great. I'm glad I can continue being me. I mean, look, we had Willy cologne on a couple of weeks ago and he said he weighed four 36. Is that what that's a number? Something big. And then he asked his wife and his wife, I don't know. You'd still look sexy to me, you know? And really clones obviously a huge guy. She's going to carry four 36, perhaps a little differently than most of us would, but still four 36 is fucking huge. I think there's also like a part of this conversation where guys are just going, hey, there's still a number. There's still a number. But I don't think any of this equates to the email. We're talking about ten pounds, and the more I think about it, we're talking about a boyfriend that said, you're not hot. Now, the thing is, it's like, if I am anything I'm a pragmatist. If anybody had to describe me in my whole way of looking at things, be like, you know what? First and foremost, he's just a pragmatist about everything. Like if I had daughters and one came home and was crying because she said that she's not pretty enough and then I'd say whatever, you know, through the eyes of caring about your daughter, you would see it in the lens would be skewed, but I feel like I'd be going, well, you're not the prettiest girl in your class. Stacy. I don't know if my daughter would name Stacy. But you know, I think I'd just be, because if your girlfriend, I mean, it's the same thing as somebody saying like John morant, and I'd go, he's awesome, but he's not the best point guard in the NBA. Let's not lose our minds about this right now. So I'm not negative you're realist. Yeah, I don't think I would have a girlfriend ever say like, hey, am I the hottest girl you've ever seen, and I would go well, because that's ridiculous. There's 3 billion people on your side of things. Three plus billion. I think it's fun to say yes to that question. Now what? Yeah, you are. I couldn't do it. It's like going on first take and make it up shit. I couldn't sit there in a relationship and go you are these things a lot of person I've ever seen in my entire life. Because I'd be like, well now you know I lie. So why would I do that? But he wasn't asked the question. He wasn't posed any of these things. He went out of his way to say, hey, you're not hot, you're beautiful, but you're not hot. That's grounds for like going in another direction, honestly. Did they say an age? Did she say an age of either of them or no? She didn't do the stats. She didn't do 64. I just, if this was like somebody in their early 20s or somebody in their 30s, I don't know. Because I think I'm telling you her picture she's really cute. I don't, you know, I'm not.

"He might not play on every single back to back his minutes or limited and whatnot, but I've noticed that the totals have been a little bit higher. So when they played the calves in their last game, that line actually opened two 18 and a half with clay coming back. And I felt like that was super high considering it was two of the top defenses in the league being the cabs in the warriors. So I feel like this line again is inflated somewhat by that. I know draymond green's not in Memphis Grizzlies are hot and playing great. They're not as great on defense as the cabs are 15th. But I still think under two 21 would be a play considering the first two meetings went under as well. I'm on the Memphis side here. And big reason, of course, draymond green, we know for sure is out. He didn't even make the trip. So sportsbooks don't have to worry. Gary Payton, there's some question marks, whether or not he's going to suit up in play. So they take a big hit defensively. On the road, in Memphis, they have 9 straight wins and by the way, they're 8 and one against the spread, morant, as we know has been sensational. I know they have no Dylan Brooks. He's their number two score, but they beat the Lakers without them. So give me Memphis at home with the points. That's my play here. You have a prop that as well, right? Yes. So I'm going John morant 125 and a half points and you never want to take an under on a player like John Moran. I mean, whoever 30 points earlier in a win over the warriors in 21 in a rematch, that one was when they played at home. But John Maureen did string together 33, 41, 30, 36, to ignite Memphis, you know, franchise record 9 game win streak, which is insane and they most recently beat the Lakers. You have a player like LeBron James just complimenting John Moran, but I just think the warriors defense.

"Come on, man. I'm working up to a segue part now. Come on. Sorry, sorry. So there's another guy at the top here that has obviously become the biggest injury lightning rod. I would say in the NBA at this point in terms of what you think his value is long term. So that's a good 5 minute spiel on what our plan is. I'm going to give you the floor to take number one unless you want me to do it. Like I'm okay either way. No, I think the other thing we do have to consider is I think we have to do a little bit of adjusting for what was knowable at the time. I think if you were going to, if you were really going to say who's going to have the better career from here between Zion and ja. I think you probably have to lean ja? Just like, frankly, we don't know science ever going to be on the court again. It's early morning for you. And if you saw the news that came out today, came up an hour ago, yeah. Continuing to lightly rehab. So that great. Not great for a guy to have played basically half a season in his first three years. And it's not like it's not like an embiid situation where he has an injury and just sits out. It's like he tries to play and then thing goes wrong has surgery tries to come back and fails. And Zion's frame in general is just like not something that seems human given the level of explosiveness that emanates from that frame. Right. And by the way, we could say something similar about the guy that I think both you and I are gonna take at number one at this point. When John morant, like his body mechanics are unnatural in a very strange way, just in regard to like, my heart drops every time that he leaps in traffic..

"I said, even going back to the schedule release, I was like, you know, you could have picked the bulls and I think I don't know why people are so out on them. They're a big market. There's a really good chance they're gonna be decent this year. So certainly now I would say, you know, with the bulls being in the two spot in the east and looking pretty legitimate as far as I'm concerned, so the bulls I would take. And you know, if you're looking at it from like we're trying to grow the league and we've got real star power here and someone that is really fun to watch, I think you take the grizzlies. You know, I think I probably would go bowls grizzlies. Great call. You and I had a conversation two or three weeks ago about which team did we think was most likely to emerge? Is that 14 in the west? I think we both picked the clippers. Ever since we said that, John morant was out of the lineup and then the grizzlies decided to hit the turbo button without him. And so they've kind of it's not a huge distance because it's only been a couple weeks, but they've created some space between themselves and the teams in the 5 6 pots out west. So they did that without jaw. I think they're going to have to kind of not get used to playing with them again, but it might take a couple of games to get back in rhythm. So that both grizzlies game is the one I would pick. I wouldn't really think twice about it too much. Because basically two teams that are winning the season. The other team that I thought about, I don't think people would be jazzed up to watch it for Christmas. Is the calves matching up against somebody, but guess who's in health and safety protocols?
