You Are What You Subscribe To

"All right. So i wanted to share with you something that my wife. Carrie ann i did the first At the beginning of the new year. And that's We sat down and we reviewed everything that both of us were subscribed to and we sorta did a purge and a respectful and together. We said you know what kind of content do we love. What do we want to learn This year what should we stop consuming. What should we start consuming and we did this very thoughtful very proactively over the course of about an hour and the high here for me is. I think it's important to be very very careful. Whose ideas that you let into your brain you know. We only have so much brain shelf space and we only have so much. Time to consume books podcasts Whatever the case you tubes whatever we like to consume and so being very thoughtful about what we put into our brain is actually a very important thing and i think there we put some shit in our head. That can hurt us pretty badly. You know if you're a longtime listener you know Have no love for the hustle stars. And i think they've done more damage to entrepreneurs and marketers than any recent group in history For a simple example you. I've heard hustle porn star. Say hustles the most important word the english language. Well i've also heard hustle porn star. Say no one ever worked himself to death well in japan they have a word for it. It's called karoshi and it translates into death by overwork. So nonstop hustling for twenty. Five years is probably not what you want to do. In addition even worse maybe is. You can hustle all you want but there's a difference between hard work and smart work hamsters hustle in their wheels to and they don't get anywhere. So what's your hustling about matters. And if you're a regular listener you know that i believe that Legends become known for a niche. That they own. So if you're hustling to design your own category that's one thing. If you're hustling trying to compete with an entrenched category king. You're gonna be in for a world of pain and yet millions and millions of business people still consume the stupidities of these hustle porn stars every day and the marketing and entrepreneur. World is stuffed with stupid ideas. Here's another example that drives me nuts minimum viable product. Why is this a good idea. Who the fuck said we. The first thing we deliver to the world should be something called a minimum viable product. It should be called a product. You fucking think is legendary and awesome and you wanna share with the whole world nother just dumb dumb dumb. I could go on with a very long list of very dumb ideas that are marketed to marketers and entrepreneurs all the time the bottom line is be very thoughtful about what you put in your brain because what you put in your brain is what you get out of your life now. Personally i like to go back to some of. Oj's peter drucker can touch him he. He's the original management thinker. His book the effect of executive changed my life by way of example. David ogilvy david. Ogilvy david ogilvy. If you're an entrepreneur if you're a marketer you're not a student of david ogilvy get on it. I go back and look at it all the time. Another one you might love in a similar vein is george lois. He sort of the punk rock version of david. Ogilvy check him out also. Of course the geez of positioning. Our reese and jack trout the so i love to go back and look at a lot of the original masters now some of the newer things that i love checking out is Check out a master class. This is incredible way to learn how to do to be taught writing by malcolm gladwin by way of example or taught how to do a three point shot by None other than steph curry. They have legendary people in many many different domains teaching their skills. It's an incredible product. Love masterclass podcast. You might wanna check out and this is not an extensive example or an extensive list. It's just an example of a few. That i like One of the jeez of marketing podcasts. Marketing over coffee by my buddy john wall and his partner. Christopher penn legendary Venture capitalists mike. Maples junior. his podcast is called. Starting greatness insanely great. Another legendary entrepreneur. Podcast is called no bowl and it's created by my buddies paul martinez and randy comas. And it features that teaching of the legendary bill campbell. Who was none other than steve. Jobs is coach if you're in the b. two b. world couple of podcasts. I love dave gerhardt's b. to b. marketing leaders. Podcast check it out. G. is emerging og. He's awesome My buddy brian burns has the One of the top sales podcast for b. two b. people be to be revenue leadership and the brutal truth about sales and selling brian burns. Check him out.

A sea world is russell brunson and he's got a whole series of podcasts and books most of them have the word secrets in them. Checkout marketing secrets podcasts. And he's all about hooks and offers and driving traffic and all of that stuff so those are just a couple to think about but most importantly i'm encouraging you to sit down and ask yourself a couple of key questions. What the kind of content i love. What do i most want to learn in the next twelve months. What should i stop consuming. What should i start consuming and remember.

Rockets not defeated by last-second Trailblazers miracle three: 104-101

"Look now. But the Houston Rockets or just one game under 508 9 there now five and four at home on the season after defeating the Blazers, one of 41 on one last night for their fourth consecutive victories, another solid night from the tandem of Victor, All of Depot and John Wall, who combined for 45 points. The win puts Houston just a game behind the Warriors, and also a only a game out of six place in the West. As of this morning, buy or sell this hot streak indicates more surprising and promising things to come this season from the Rockets. Yeah, and by I said this, but I love the combo. I didn't think to be a playoff team, but they might be And it and there's that whole 9 10 play. In reality. There's the joy of not having James Harden around and look, it's there's a possibility that the Rockets are going to make it further in the playoffs and the Nets. It's It's 3%. It is not zero is not 0%. If the Rockets get really hot and play anyone that's not the Lakers. I say they play the Clippers. The Clippers can collapse against teams they shouldn't and I think the Nets can, too. It's not guaranteed. The juxtaposition between the rockets doing what they're doing with their limited talent. Relatives with the Nets made due with their massive talent, I think could be a really interesting story line the rest of the year

Portland Trail Blazers lose another starter, can’t sustain hot first quarter, fall 104-101 at Houston Rockets

"Start with the blazers any rockets. The first game of the tnt double header on thursday houston is a team. I find it hard not to cheer for. I'm in the corner of john. Wall demarcus cousins and victor oladipo may because they suffered huge injuries in the past major surgeries. And i'm an empathy guy. I wanna see them recover. I wanna see them fight battle. Get back to their old sells like john wall said after the game everybody on this roster has something to prove. Those three guys have been cast off by the role teams. It's a good story but at the same time they have suffered major injuries. They've got a guy on their roster. Who's young spry and should be dominating. The league at the center spot christian would is playing well this year but i think he should be featured a little bit more. He only had twelve shots against the portland. Trailblazers that usage rate should be. Hi you're he. Is that good now. The rockets won this game. They're down twenty early to the blazers. They came back the blazers shooting because they love to shoot their last in the league in points in the paint. The shooting almost overcame their defensive. Problems they just allow too many buckets. The rockets have full strength though. Should have beat this blazers team up bad c. J. mecom still out. He's out for at least a couple more weeks. Yousef nurkic also out for the blazers. I in this game shouldn't have gone down to the wire i'm sure. Tnt would beg to differ with that. They had a game. Go down to the wire. It was exciting but this rockets team needs to find the right hierarchy It's it's an interesting balance. Victor oladipo going into a contract year. I think should be operating a little bit. More within the system and christian would should be the guy scoring ton the blazers continue to fire away from deep like they always do and they got some performances dame lillard of course. She had five threes thirty points. Overall gary. junior was the surprise seven. Three's twenty three points. Overall and three of those threes were consecutive in the fourth quarter.

NBA: John Wall scores 24 as Houston Rockets beat Russell Westbrook, Washington Wizards

"John wall scores twenty four to lead the rockets over the wizards one zero seven to eighty eight lee big takeaway from well. It was a pretty close game until john. Wall really took over the last seven minutes. There hit a couple of shots made some plays and and got his victory now. Coming into this was a couple of story lines of course beal and and john wall would teammates here in washington for a lot of years now. Their relationship didn't really end in a hostile way. It was more just like the team moved on. So john wall was more trying to prove a point to his team. In the franchise and the wizards rather than ex teammate there. I in bradley bill. And then you also of course you had wall and russell westbrook who were traded for each other just prior to the season and now that one was a little bit more spicy. But i think that's probably more westbrook than in the us both on a minute restriction but yeah i mean it was. It was a close game but The the rockets pulled away in the end. And really i mean i. it's post game. You saw bradley. Beal who had another good performance for the washington wizards just looking completely distressed on the sidelines. And really the question. Out of this game is we've been kind of asking and alluding to the last couple of weeks. Anyways is does bradley. Beal stay with wizards for the rest of this season. Because they going nowhere right now. He's putting up right numbers. There's no question. He would be in demand and i think he needs to move on from the wizards as well. So you know. That's that's probably the biggest talking point. I think coming out of this guy because you know it's it's not neither seems really a a threat to was. The rockets guess could make the playoffs but Certainly not a contender. So it's really just do. The wizards hit the reset button. He move on from bradley. Beal may even move from westbrook if they can get a first round. Pick out of him because I just can't see this thing going anywhere for the remainder of this season. Yeah every loss. That piles up there for the wizards trae. It does feel like the echo chamber gets a little louder with the trade deal. Save bill get him out of there. Hey beal ask the front office to move you. There are three in ten now. they're one in eighteen games. Westbrook has played. He has not looked great. He was He was just visibly upset last night. And then you started talking. Some trash with wall was given it back to them and walson after the game russ has been kicking my ass for years. My third win against russell westbrook that he's been in the league this john wall talk it so i don't know if it's any more than that just a frustrated westbrook but yeah what do you think about the idea of will be just like go to front office. They do not want to be here. Because i don't want to be on a team. That's not going to be a playoff tournament in just signed that huge deal though right like he's still got two seasons after this one the westbrook in wall donnybrook. What happened there Westbrook goes by wall walls down and it seems to me like he was basically saying yeah. I tripped because you could see westbrook saying back to him. It doesn't matter what matters like as he upset is wallops at that. Westbrook is trash talking him for tripping over his own. That's what it might have been. They hit him with the double tax. And everybody just moved on. But if you're bradley beal despite the fact he's got this huge deal still on the books to be frustrated man because he had twenty five through the first three quarters and then in the fourth quarter it feels like he's not even getting the ball like feels like he's barely getting a touch. I know he had eight points. He took a bunch of shots but there are times when he just doesn't even get a look from westbrook he'll just be standing at the top of the court. It feels like kevin durant waiting to get the ball all over again. But i don't know you kind made your bed now sleep in it.

James Harden says Rockets 'can't be fixed' as Houston reportedly talks trade with at least six teams

"First thing you need to know is that james harden wants out of houston. Oh you already knew that. Well now james harden really wants houston and he's not just showing it with his play which has been the case this season but he's essentially saying it in postgame press conferences after the second loss in a row to the los angeles lakers consecutive losses. Here where they got smashed. The rocket said they lost by seventeen but they were down by twenty one in the first quarter it was over used when teams play twice the team that lost the first game fights back on his play has been lacklustre but in the post game press conference he answered two questions and then he walked right off. I answer was essentially. We're not good enough now. We're not good enough. The second answer quote. I love the city. I literally have done everything that i can. I mean the situation is crazy. It's something that i don't think can be fixed. And he walked off and that's essentially what he's doing to the houston rockets. It's kind of like the. Anthony davis situation a couple years ago in new orleans work. Anthony davis was halfheartedly. Playing it was very very evident. It was very awkward to watch it for pelican's fans and the entire league. It became an issue in. The commissioner's office eventually. Anthony davis sat down. He wore that. That's all folks sweater and evening with. That's all folks wafaa. Foulkes harden wants to be dealt now and is not good for the locker room there in houston where new rocket john wall has to answer questions and his basically saying that guy doesn't want to be here he said after the game but when you have certain guys in the mix that don't want to buy in it's going to be hard to do anything special or anything good as a basketball team will. There is one really really really good player on that team. And it's james harden but he does not want to be there anymore more evident after his first three games this season it was a showcase. He scored thirty seven per game in those first three games. He sat down for one game. Basically said all right. I've shown that good. I've got the track record. He's averaged seventeen over his last five. I really hope the league doesn't have to intervene. But james harden was hoping himself that he was walking from that press conference onto a plane and on his way to another team at sherwood. It felt like watching that press conference.

Houston's James Harden reminds other NBA teams why they should trade for him with sparkling 44-point debut

"Let's talk about James Harden because he played his first game and by the way, think about the circumstances here because James Harden that they make the trade right. Russell Westbrook goes out. John Wall comes in Russell Westbrook. You know he was a bit of a problem. Hardened wanted somebody else in here. He wanted wall. They get wall. Everything's fine, You know, like, maybe we hardened gets traded at some point, but that's gonna fix things and obviously doesn't it doesn't do that at all. Hardened doesn't show up for the start of the season on time. He's not exactly interested. So you have a brand new head coach of Brand new GM and your superstar is M I A Great. Where is he? Paul? Silas? I don't know. I've no it is Stephen Silas. That's it. Yes, it is. Dad's Paul. Right? So, Yeah. So, Stephen Silence. I'll get there sees forgettable. That's why James Harden doesn't like him. No, I don't know anything about Steven stylist on that year T bash the guy, but I'm gonna make that mistake more than once now. Here's the thing for Harden did not show up and be partying and then get punished for that. And then, a week later, he's out partying again. If he dodges, he dodges the fine because the game gets postponed that the Rockets were supposed to open their season against the thunder. That game did not happen because the Rockets didn't have eight players to play the game. Now one of those guys that wasn't available Was hard and so if hard and was there, I think they would have been able to play the game. I'm not 100% on that. But I'll double check that, but he made his debut finally for the Rockets. Tonight now. Great game. By the way. I mean, my goodness hell of a game. They played the Blazers and the Blazers air Great, like when I look at the NBA, and I think about teams that just I would love to watch on any given night. If you tell me that team is playing somebody decent. I'm gonna watch that game Blazers. Absolutely. Top five favorite team like I I just loved Damian Lillard. I love the attitude over there. I just think there are fun Team. So Blazers Houston Rockets game goes into overtime. CJ McCollum playing lights out, hitting three pointers James Harden in his debut, playing lights out basketball, You look great. And I'll give you the stat line because for hard and it's one of those things where you're gonna be a little worried about what he looks like. There's been questions about what kind of shape is in and so for him to not get that work in its already shortened off season. You just kind of wonder. Okay? How does James Harden look? Well, he answered every question he possibly could. In 43 minutes. James Harden 44 points 17 assists. I mean, wow. Wow. Like, what else can you say? Just And and that's the fascinating thing about all of this. This is where it gets really curious because You see, James Harden put up 44 17. And everyone immediately forgets about everything that happened and That's why he gets away with it right. Like everybody is going to be going nuts now. Anybody that is in the conversation to get James Harden? They want him right? Like I'll be curious. If you're a fan of the teams there six teams right now that have been connected the heart and that he said that he's willing to go there off the top of my head. I know Milwaukee. Portland, Philly, Brooklyn, Boston. I know missing one more, but To be a fan of one of those six teams that hardens interested in For all the debating and questioning of what kind of teammate is he? What kind of effort is he going to put in? What does he look like? In two years, you know, Because obviously you're trading for these two years. But maybe you want to keep him around. What does he look like? You know, can you buy into him with all of his habits that we've talked about so much over the last couple of weeks? Well, you put up 44 17 his first game back. Who cares, right? That's what a lot of people are going to say. And if you're a team that's desperate to win right now, That's what a lot of them are going to say. That's what a lot of front offices are going to say. That's the argument is he is such a supremely talented player that as much as we've squabbled Over who he is and what he's about, and what his trade value is. He is this ridiculously good at scoring the basketball and This is what the league is for. They play basketball, So you put the character stuff aside. If he's good enough of doing the job that's the life of a superstar.

His vocal is almost like a hiccup yellow dog. Does he always starts me. Is greg guy. I liked where with him. You know he actually changed. Like energy. the team. That's not something you always hear about russell westbrook but you know that he's loud you know that he's going to make his personality known as smith who is their backup point guard and has played for eleven organizations in his career. He got a call the night of the trade while he was asleep. Like in the middle of the night from russell westbrook and one o'clock in the morning and he's i wake up man what you're doing. I'm like brought. I am sleep. He like you know what. I'm all come on. You know what kind of juice we break in who russ is and restaurants kept yelling at him. Aren't you juiced argued right now. Aren't you juiced an issue is like i'm a sleep so i think the amount of energy that he's going to bring was apparent from that one. Am moment when he called in the middle of the night and welcome.

"john wall" Discussed on The NBA Show

"While i was really looking forward to cheese but the stakes pretty good former. Mvp nine time star like this. Pretty good i think we can. We can deal so. I think fans are just kind of getting over john wall and then starting accepted russell. Westbrook is pretty good in that you know. Despite you know criticisms of his efficiency and some of the things you can say about his game he still pretty good and if you look at the numbers he put up last year in houston and despite dealing with injuries You know east till one of the best players in in basketball so you don't have to worry about trying to see john wallwork himself back in shape. You got a guy that you plug in. He's ready to go so i think that they're just sort of this this Just getting over to break up in this accepting the fact that you know what you still got a pretty good player here and we might be able to make the playoffs if if he's if he's healthy in everything outright. There's i can feel my brain at war a little bit because there's the part of it that wants to see good players traded all the time just so we can see them in different context. We get to see russell westbrook and bradley beal trying to figure this out. That's going to be really interesting to watch. But then and maybe this is just me being a sap. But there's the part of that is regrettable whenever any player who's been in one place as long as well as been who was in touch with that fan base and that city as he was has to move on for whatever reason even if their own free agency you just you lose a little something there especially as the nba moves towards that that more mercenary place. I mean it really hit me as i was looking through the teams trying to figure out. Who's been with their team longer. Than wall was with the wizards and there's really only two guys left. It's don's lem steffi's exactly and you don has been with the heat since time immemorial basically he's gonna be buried somewhere in that arena one day like he played next to ronnie siklie. It hurts wall. And now like i mean. Even just aside from the weirdness of seeing him in a different uniform that dissociation of taking him away from this group of fans in this organization. It's really gotten to know him that it hurts to lose that. Yeah and i. I think that we've lost that. I mean i know that We were this player. Empowerment era which really only A couple handful of guys but you know like oil if you're not winning championships and just leave and find a team that you can. You can go win in. I think we've lost an element of that bond. That you have with athletes in connection you can have That just comes from being with somebody and seeing them fail in seeing succeed in just going through that ho during that rise with them. Wanna reasons why damian lillard has such a strong connection with fans in portland in like. He's never won anything but they love him. They adore him in. He's he talks about all the time about how he wants to stay there and win there in that is deeper than just trying to win a championship. Sometimes it's about making a connection with the community to where they love you so much they wanna raise your jersey to the rafters in A lot about a lot of players that we've seen just in this lot mobility monthly moon around. You don't get a chance to have a home. You know Like shack you know his great hall of fame player. He's bounced right a lot of places number a lot of places because he's just a uniquely special guy who happens to a guy like reality who's a hall of fame player but looking around and sees that jaanus under the kupa whereas number thirty four in milwaukee now the numbers retired is probably not gonna have allen on the back in any goes to boston and with the championship they're now pearson number retired. Katie's probably would have his number retired there. A gordon hayward just wore number twenty in in boston and he had just as much role championship. There is anybody else goes. Miami was a championship in like as great as reality is is this number ever gonna hang anywhere as great as he is. He's a hall of fame player. Best shooter we have ever seen. So you've seen a lot a lot of these situations where you guys are. Moving around in like just got frustrated. I couldn't win here but there is something new he said about guys who stay in who want to stay But then i think also sadness here with the john wall situation in that is sort of like a bad marriage where you can kind of see the warning signs that this is over but you just hold on. Because you've been together disease like you. Just will you know she still here saugus. I got to keep showing up in soda of what the wizards had been doing. The last couple of years and i think the injuries sort of like having a baby where if force them to stay together because they had no other choice but the but to stick it out because you know he was hurt. think that you know the fact that they traded him. I think it was a good way to just kinda separate negative seperation. That should have happened. Probably two years ago can honestly believe it was john wall. Scientists supermax in two thousand seventeen. That's where the problem started in where there was a separation between him organization in his teammates and manifest itself net. Really funky crazy wild practice ahead begging twenty eighteen where john personnel scott brooks and rally bills. Like i've been putting.

"Russell westbrook traded to the washington wizards from the houston rockets for john wall and future first round draft. Pick houston that is the most paramount future first round draft pick protection on the first round. Pick that the wizards traded to houston and the westbrook for wall deal. They decided to cash it in in the twenty twenty Twenty twenty three. Nba draft pick is lottery protected. Twenty twenty four the pick. His top twelve protected. The twenty twenty-five pick is top ten protected and then if they want to wait if you want to wait all the way to twenty twenty six to pick his top aide protected then becomes two second rounders now. Jonathan fagin of the houston chronicle. He reported that westbrook wanted to go elsewhere so we can be himself on the floor man. Exactly what does that mean. what is he talking about. Clarify define a little bit more when he speaks about he wants to quote unquote be- himself. Are we talking about the wessel russell. Westbrook that won the where he averaged a triple double. Is that the himself. He wants to be at so that was income through the door and being that effective. I would like to see the be himself. Russell westbrook be the guy that the second year. When he was with paul george where george with the guy that was getting most of the shadow attempts that i wouldn't say was taking a backseat. But you know. He was starting to give more and more of the spotlight to paul george in terms of the acknowledgement that. Hey you know what. We're going to have the team that we want to have the best team that we can be. you know. i've got to be more than just sharing with paul george to give him a little bit more in terms of responsibility at least on offense with the oklahoma city thunder so with him going from houston with james harden and now moving over to play with bradley beal with the team. Tommy sheppard titley owns the such making a point with trade. That bradley beal is going to be the center piece. That bradley beal that franchise guy the bradley beal is going to be the russell.

Rockets’ Russell Westbrook Traded to Wizards for John Wall

"Brian windhorst who. I saw yesterday on tv when early in the morning. I saw brian. When i found out that my found out the night before i guess late the night before that westbrook had moved from houston for wall in washington and is everybody knows because they've heard me say two thousand times. I love this trade for washington. But i thought brian would have a better perspective on it because he hasn't been burdened by having to watch the washington wizards for x. amount of years. John wall go nowhere absolutely nowhere. So let me let me start with the most obvious thing and take my prejudices out of this. Why do you make this trade. If you're houston well. I think this is really about the other stars involved. I mean it's hard to say that when you're talking about you know all star. I mean all star point guards. It'd be nine. yeah well. Isn't it all star today. And they and then they forty million dollars. They could traded for each other. I mean this is the definition of a blockbuster. But i'm sitting here saying this is about bradley. Beal james harden and it's different for both of them This is i think houston trying to salvage the situation. Which is they know that. They absolutely positively no westbrook. It are not going work out together. and so they're trying to find a way to keep their fingers in the dam so to speak. I do not think it's going to work I think the fact that they got the first round pick And i think they also hedging. And i don't think this is a strong bat. I wanna be clear. But they're also hedging that if wall recovers from this achilles That it might be better to have him for the next three years and russell westbrook. But i mean you know you're not staking your application on that I think hard and we'll be out of there by the trade deadline. Which looks like it's going to be in late march Maybe well before. But that's what they're trying to do and washington. I you know this is about holding bradley. Beal i mean i don't think it's a revolutionary idea that they have transitioned from john wallace their franchise player to bradley beal. This is clear and while Trust me there are plenty of people out there who have checked in with the wizard checked in with bradley beal however they do that. Are you happy in washington. The answer is still. Yes but the wizards are very aware that that may not be yes indefinitely and so this trade they trade free guy who was on the nba team. Last year. He was thirteen nba And he will in theory. Give them some more ammunition this year to compete with charlotte in atlanta who have upgraded. Their rosters and the wizards need to make the playoffs. This year or i think bradley beal could be out of there. And that's a move in this direction. Is it a slam dunk. Tony no but i think will be a upgrade from what they can expect from john wall.

"Because they already dealt one of the they got back for roco so i think they really need to hold out and get something good for him and the brooklyn package is not that as much as i like kerris spencer did when he and jared allen. Yeah it's it's funny too. Because i think i i don't i don't wanna say that i i hate the narrative. James harden ran people out of town. But you like just looking at it you play with white howard for what three years They make the western conference finals. Obviously that doesn't work out. dwight's gone Trade for chris fall. he's gone Make the trade for russ four c. p. three and we saw that turns out and now russ wants out at some point. You have to walk in. Be like okay. We'll part of this is on james harden like i'm not trying to be again like you mentioned i don't wanna be a talking head but that's just the fact of the matter man like james is hard dude to play with us. An insanely good basketball player But i think it does kind of come back on him a little bit. I still would definitely say a lot is until dog but that's a whole other story in in debt. I think the hardest part to stomach as the houston. Rockets is you went from chris. Paul to james harden You gave up three picks total in that process right so you gave out four for russ and got one back for john wall. Like that's just i. I don't know what they're going to do in the future but like just keep me up at night knowing knowing that happened. Yeah that's that's worse than non making this trade that they just made. Now that's a good point. Maybe it was a sunk cost with the cpi three frustrate. You know leave afraid. Ross because of how much have your vote about form you know if you see a win winnable trade. Can you pull the trigger either way. Yeah houston is kind of playing with house money here right. Because if john wall is bad they blow it up on trade harden. They got worse. And it's gonna make their better if john wall was good. Then he's going to sell tickets in the fans are gonna have fun at the games and john wall's going to be fun to watch again so everyone's going to enjoy their time. So if he i think the signals the houston rebuild. kind of. it's just a matter of them holding out for what they can get for harden annual houses playing with house money in the bubble. We want to throw trade changes. No unless you guys want to you like..

"I think so that eight seat is up for grabs. And they just strengthen their case. I think a significant significant degree. I kind of want to speak on houston side of it because well i'd love for i'd like it for both sides to be honest especially obviously washington gives them a better chance to sneak into the playoffs. It's clear that all these bottom eastern conference teams that are always are shit are like okay. Let's actually try winning this year Atlanta washington charlotte. They're all doing it. mcconnell wants growth houston. Because they're kinda getting shit. But i kind like it because it's kind of the unknown like they don't really know whether getting back to john wall. We don't really know what john wall is going to be And who knows he could theoretically be a better fit x. to harden He might not be. He probably isn't is probably just as bad as a fit. But it's the unknown. Which kinda. I'm kinda in for their data traffic. It's a little bit of unknown he android wall and how what he currently is because if he's even ninety five ninety percent of what he was i think this is a big win for them And i think it can be a big win for both sides to be honest. Russell westbrook is russell westbrook. But john wall could be anything he could russell westbrook. I had to get the family guy joke. Sorry now that was good. I appreciated that But it kind of is hard to judge houston trades in a vacuum nowadays right. It does seem like they're kind of selling everything you know. They're kind of liquidating Other than james harden and the signing of christian. Would i mean you think about how You think about how you know. They just traded covington yet. They still keep making these moves. Suggest they're winning. Now is just kind of confusing. But you know. I don't wanna be too talking. Heady but what do you think this means for james harden. Yeah that's a good question. I mean i. I still i will go with this. The grave if they.

"A blockbuster trade. Because of the names involved john wall was a perennial all star. Russell westbrook is a legend. Yes alleged the first ballot hall of famer and alleged for the three triple double seasons but neither of these teams is going to be very good. So i don't know that there's a huge winner. But if i have to pick which team won the trade i'm going with washington because washington becomes relevant right. We wanna see russ and bradley. Beal play together just like we wanna see russ and james harden play together if for no other reason in the c- can at work and i actually think it can work to a degree. We're i give them a shot. A pretty good shot and making the playoffs in east now is not guaranteed. But i think they'll battle with atlanta. Maybe an indiana kind of for that seven eight area in the playoffs in the eastern conference. So they're relevant. They got a shot. You put the ball in his hands you surrounding with shooting. They were good three point shooting team last year. Eighth in the league. I believe and so you go from there. You're relevant your sexy your fun to watch people are talking about you. As far as westbrook. Overall though i think he would have been better off just staying in houston so i don't know that he's a winner overall. Obviously he talked too much in. There has to be done at this point but he was in a better situation with the rockets he may never play another relevant playoff game in his career in houston they could have been. Maybe a second round playoff team and gotten into the playoffs and made a little noise but now he's he's going to he's still can make all star teams though in the east. That's something john wall probably will never make an all star team in the west. There's just way too many guards there. Especially of james harden stays with them. So i think overall wall was a loser in this deal and west and the wizards were the winners. Let let me ask you a question broussard. Because you said rust stayed in houston. They could play. Relevant playoff games potentially like they've last year made the second round last year. They got beat by the best team. Why can't happen with houston with wall like i know. We haven't seen war play in two years. But i but i i think christian would is a really good signing by them. I think stephen silas going to do a good job. Harden is still an unquestioning unquestioned. Top six player in this league a john wall is even eighty percent of what he was pre achilles injury and he'll injury why can't they go. A similar place would have gone with. Ross one walls. Not as good as russ and i know they're similar style players but it's a big if they if he's going to be what he was when he got injured okay remember. He's got the knee injury and in the achilles on top of that but beyond that what russell westbrook gave you. even though he and hard weren't a great fit and obviously isn't great off the ball. He had this aggressive ferocity that kept the opponent off balance. That kept the opponent off dr. His ferociousness was an x factor. That could throw everything out of whack for the opponent and so you had hard new. Was this tremendous half court score and shooter and then you had russ who was just a whirlwind and as athletic as john wall was and maybe still will be. He is not that he is. He does not put the defense off balance the way that russell westbrook did so that kinda x factor that unknown that through teams off in the west. They won't have that anymore. I don't know how in the world these two were hard and wall. They're gonna play together. Waugh's not a very good shooter while dominates the ball as much as harden or westbrook. Did i just don't see this being very successful and very good for the right. I'm sorry i don't think the rockets made a good deal at all because you got a first round draft pick okay. Wow is not going to be a high lottery. Pick we know is protected as so i. Just don't i think they would have been better off with westbrook. Okay wow is by new thing for sard be back on your idea that ross will never play a relevant playoff game. What do you think the strategy was. Or the blueprint was for the heat to get to finals a super competitive guy. Russ okay. Jimmy butler surrounded with shooters and some good coaching. Janas kind of breakdown. Of course but next thing you know of all of the sudden wow heater in the finals so is there a chance. I don't think we're at bradley. Beal's apex performance. I could see russ pushing in. And i can also see russ given them that little bit of extra attitude that they need to sort of make a run on fan of longshots. It's like my we're blazer buddies and like that so. I'm like talk myself into the wizards. So i'm just not ready to give up the fact that ross can't get in the playoffs and make some noise. You're leaving out. A huge factor for miami that organization that organization was a big part of their success. This year the professionalism the drive of pat riley eric's bolsters a much better coach than scotty brooks and jimmy butler is a better leader than russell. Westbrook is and so that those are huge. Now i again. I think they make the playoffs can. But it's not guaranteed but look the east is much better brooklyn. Was there last year with durant and kyrie irving philadelphia will be better with doc rivers and what they've done to surround their two young stars. They're more being there as well as the gm boston.

"Phones, we go before we get on outta here today. Let's go to max real quick. You live. Stephen ain't go ahead. Anyway, I think there might be a landing spot for John wall. It might just be Gotham think about maybe they package in its cantor and a bunch of other pieces move that big contract with wall. And I think that guy like fish sale, I think he could put his arms around wall. You match them up with KP you match them up with with the kid knocks from Kentucky the Kentucky connection. No thing. Tim hardaway. There might be. Thank you. No. Thank you. Listen. Let me tell you something right now with everything that I'm saying about wall, I believe in wall. I believe that his talent will come shining through. He's had three mine in the issues. No question. But I think his heart. I think his game if he's healthy, which he is. I think that he'll do just fine. Here's my issue with wall. Here's my issue. Not what wall I'm the kind of person. I wanna point God that's a dead eye shooter. I want to point guard that can pull up at three. I'd want Kimball walk up, but head of John wall all day every day. And if you're gonna come to me about John wall, why don't you come to me about Kemba Walker who's going to be a free agent to summer? I mean are the Hornets going to be interested in? I just finished telling you Kimball walk as a free agent this summer. I just told you you ain't gotta trae long. He's a free agent. Go get him. If there's somebody that needs to be overpaid. Maybe a little bit. It would be him. You think they got a shot at him? I don't know. I don't know. Because I think I think if you're Michael Jordan, and Charlotte, you might have to offer him to max cause you ain't got anything else. You might have to offer him to max. I gotta run Georgia lava Stephen a real quick, George go. Just calling to see what do you think about the clippers early success in the season? And Ben squad known as the goon squads. I worried about no goose squad. I love Montrose Harrow. I think he's the modern day. Dennis rodman. I love Lou Williams who I think is the best six MAG in the NBA. I I love this kid Alexander. I think he's got tremendous upside. And I love the job that Doc Rivers is doing, and I've always been a fan that that's nasty of patching Beverly, I'm a huge fan of that brother. Having said all of that they need a superstar with the clippers. And that's what they need to do. I don't know if they have the ability to get that they have the cap space is going to really be interesting to see what Jerry West and Doc Rivers and those boys pull off this summer. We shall see. But I'll believe it when I see it. But I'm still very proud of the job that Doc Rivers is doing right now, he's really reminded people that he can really really coach. I gotta get on outta here. But I let y'all twenty two hours from now head and back east. It's been beautiful in LA. Thank the good Lord for the Rams chiefs game last night talk to you on twenty two hours peace and love.

"Forgive me. If I keep looking down at my phone's, but I'm getting text messages as we speak. Y'all figure out from who? But there are people who know that. I know what the hell I'm talking about. Connected to the NBA. Inside the NBA. I'm just getting started. Now people who know me know, I'm trying to be an actually I. Ladies and gentlemen. I got very very shocking news for you. I don't like to admit these things, I really really don't it actually tarnishes in sully's, my reputation, but I have to tell you. I'm actually a nice guy. I don't enjoy doing this. This so much more that I know that I'll never tell and there's so much more that I know that inevitably I'm going to have to tell. This certain things that's personal. I've never tell. But as it pertains the basketball. Yes. Did I go at John wall a little bit hard last last week or so when I was in LA. Yes, it hurt me to do it. I didn't want to I like John wall. But he was playing like trash. The whizzes. We're looking like trash, I know he can do better. So I was challenging him to do better. And when I brought up him at the rose ball club in DC. By the way, let's not be a hypocrite. Here. I'm coming near Rosbach looked for me soon. I'll be there in a few weeks. I'm comment. I'm comment. It's going to be probably a Friday or Saturday night. 'cause I want to be able to sleep the next morning, but I'm coming trust me out showing up I knocking John wall for going there. But you can't be seen on video and social media drinking out of bottles in a club twenty four to thirty six hours before game. Particularly when you're ready presumed to be overweight. That's just a bad. Look, it's stupid. It's flat out stupid. And so now as a result of all of this. We got Ernie Grunfeld who could potentially be on a hot seat. We've got Scott Brooks who could potentially be on hotseat. Although he's guaranteed is thirty five million seven million per year for five years and this is third season. So he still owned the brunt of twenty one million dollars. The leones probably ain't gonna wanna pay him that the doing nothing. So a probably keep him on a job and make another move. If things don't change which explains why Ernie Grunfeld is out there possibly trying to move people. Because according to the report by Adrian Watson arou- ski and others Bradley Beal has been on the market John wall. It's been on the market. I happen to know. For fact, that Bill has more value than John wall. Outta port. His name is going to be up as well why? Because of your Ernie Grunfeld and the wizards, and you're trying to make moves why the hell get rid of John wall. But key porter and that contract you want to really make change get rid of those contracts. And they have actually been those out there that are talking about Kemba Walker. For a guy like John wall. Let me assure y'all or something. Mitch come chicken. Michael Jordan were born at night not last night. Ain't no way in hell anybody that knows anything about basketball going trade Kimball? Walk of John wall. First of all John wall in Kimball walkers level, right now Kemba Walker same due to just drop sixty or Philly Kimball. Walker to save due to just drop forty three on Kyrie Irving and Boston last night that Kemba Walker. Who is a star? Who you never hear this kind of stuff about that? You're hearing about John wall. That Kemba Walker. A no way in hell. Charlie go move him. He only make twelve million this. She's grossly underpaid. They gotta take care of him. But even if the salaries matched, you ain't trade, no Kimball. Walk for though, John wall. Now right now not right now. Walker walkers going this way? John wall's going this way. That means that John was going to say that way. No, I believe in John wall. I believe he's got the pride to turn it around. If called on the carpet to do. So. I think he's got the pride and intestinal Florida to to turn it around and beat that stud that he's capable of being. But people out there gotta stop being. So damned software them. We'll be scared of him when he prayed plays well acts, right? Give him all the praise. He deserves when he messes up call them on it..

"I have to be fair. I look at Otto porter is it his full. He took one hundred thirteen million dollar winning Joe. I mean, I know he's not worth it. But what did you take? I take it. If I were him. Bradley Beal, Bradley Beal is one of the best shooters in basketball and one of the better players in basketball, who's a worthy all star. And by the way, he's a professional. Does he have the greatest relationship with John wall? No. But we all know Bradley, Beal's the best play on a Washington was his right now, we all know that. And when you look at Bradley Beal and his shooting ability, if anything is affecting Bradley Beal is the fact that he's got to deal with all the drama surrounding the team. Now, what is that drama? Could it be that you have a point guard? That's worth that signed a one hundred sixty three sixty nine point three million dollars extension that kicks in next season. Over the next four years. He's paid thirty eight million next year forty one the year after forty three year after that forty forty years today the contract kicks in next season. He knows this. It's already been thought it's guaranteed and the year before that when he's getting paid a measly ninety million nineteen million dollars. He comes in and out of say. And I don't mean fat. I mean fat for him. You eight Steph curry, you don't shoot like that your game is predicated on your lettuce is in your speed and your ten nasty. If you come in remotely out of shape, it's compromised you and a t. That's number one number two. You can't tell them nothing. Hell I try to talk to John wall. Confide them still an API full. Teammates. Went dare say anything to him, which brings me the point number three. Why? Because their belief was he ran all over Scott Brooks. And that Scott Brooks was too accommodating to capitulating to soft, and as a result John wall did what he wanted when he wanted and players did not want to be a part of that. I read the text messages to you yesterday. So now, evidently Scott Brooks is decided to speak up. Well, once they spoke up, you got cut out. We ought to give proxy Ernie Grunfeld for okay in a fine. But as for bad reason, you know, why? Because when former coach Scott Brooks predecessor Randy Wittman, wanted to give John wall a fine because he had to stop practice one day because him and John wall got into it and Ernie Grunfeld wanted to find them, according to people close to Randy women, Ernie Grunfeld refused to allow ready women to penalize John wall. John wall. As a result knew he could do what he wanted to anyone in how they want it. Basically played so the rest of the season in route to a five hundred forty one and forty one Reckitt. Then he got her during the playoffs. And what's the, you know, ready with without a job? Out of a job. So these problems that exist in the nation's capital. Evidently has been going on for years. Years..

"On ESPN made me proud to be a part of the ESPN family. It was something special. Y'all. It says that seventy seven thousand showed up in the tendency to LA Coliseum last night. I'll be like I be damned. I don't believe that for one second. I think it was more than that. I really really do. I don't think there's any question about that. And I'll get into more of what I saw as I said, I think that the game. You know, if the MVP award was on it was was given out today. It will go to drew Brees would not go to Patrick Mahomes. Drew Brees has one interception. This entire season one. He's completed nearly eighty percent of his passes. He's beaten the Rams which beat the chiefs. Chiefs have two losses. Patrick Mahomes, had five turnovers three interceptions and two lost fumbles. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. When you look at the efficiency of drew Brees. There's no denying that. If the season where the end the day drew Brees is the league MVP, that's point number. No one wanted to get into some other stuff that's going on here. Not that this individual is worth big time news, but it is important to point out her right? It is important to point out that when you look at. What's been transpiring in the NBA? It's getting very very interesting, contrary to popular belief JR Smith is not that compelling these days JR Smith shooting offer the Cleveland Cavaliers. Essentially is on the trading block. Because the Cavaliers announced today that JR Smith will no longer be with the team as Orgainzation works with JR and his representation regarding his future. Jay awesome myth went on the record as they quote. I don't think the goal is to win the goal isn't to go out there and try to get as many wins as you can is what he told the athletic. I think the goal is to develop and lose to get lottery picks. I think that was always the plan. That's what j awesome at said. So essentially accused the Cavs of tanking, obviously that's not bad for business outside of the streets of Philadelphia because of the press as the prince has the Princess, okay? And as a result, they don't want him anymore. So somebody else has to find them. Jay all wanted out. There's nothing compelling near. I'm gonna tell you. What is compelling, and that's what's going on in the nation's capital involving the Washington Wizards recent reports are have come out that John wall? You know? Out Scott Brooks. And ultimately was fine by the team had to be disciplined by the team for being disrespectful to the coach. He ultimately apologized, but that's what we know. Here's the deal. I don't know if you could get rid of John wall. But in order for the Washington Wizards to go anywhere. John wall has to go. Yes to go. And I'm gonna tell you why. There are people. That require a little bit. Something different see with John wall. John wall. For for this season had a reputation of plan hard and going hard. He never really consistently developed his jump shot. He was always a bit premadonna JR. Any dead. He said things and did things he should not have said and done. That's true. He was reoccupied were being at all star getting his numbers being recognized as an all star. So even when a t was struggling he was able to say, it's not on me..

"Well, and then Dave is even does fly the coop. At least. You still got a drawl? Unless unless like, the it actually makes sense trade eighty have John wall without a d. Well, no, I mean, at least he's still a player under roster else worth going to the games to see John wall. And then an all star. I know that and that's part of quesion to right? You talk about Beal. And what a good fit. He would be there. I saw Bobby marks tweeting this earlier, you know, the irony in all of this is you know, who would be perfect with New Orleans right now. Anthony davis. Buddy hield. I know right. I mean, they made the cousin deal and they took the risk. But I mean, buddy healed would have been that was the theory when they drafted buddy healed is that it would be a perfect outside compliment to Davis. And now seeing as buddy yield has taken a massive leap in year three. There's no doubt about that. He really would. He'd be perfect with Davis. Cousins was a risk worth taking buddy, buddy. Now in year three. He's developed quite nicely. And like you said, Chris exactly how New Orleans would've imagined it to be just didn't work out some fortunate. This last Friday the pelicans were in town to play against the grizzlies and they cancelled their shoot around before the game in the more. So they weren't gonna have a shoot around. Right. And somebody from the grizzlies was downstairs, and they were working out just out on the court. And they said buddy healed was day are without team for over an hour. Hour and a half just working out by himself. That's why I love buddy in the draft. Right everything. I heard about him was his work ethic. And that no matter what he would turn into as a player, you knew he would maximize like whatever potential was he knew you'd get there. And he's on his way. Well, and I love stories like that. Right. There's a guy they can't shoot around. There's nobody else there. He's not there by himself or an hour and a half or more just practicing, and it's obviously played dividend. He's made a big third year. Leap guys. It's the third year. You know, we talk about the second year leap so much. Sometimes it's the third year. There's other USA bonuses done it to who else would be third year. Lavertu? He was doing it before you had the injury. You know? So sometimes it's the third year leap that guy's making. He'll golly he'd be perfect with New Orleans right now. Anyway, let's move onto interestingly enough, but he healed team things have been going so well for the Sacramento Kings. And then the story leaks about Dave. Or now since they have said that everything's okay with Davy. Of course lot evoke is giving them the vote of confidence not once but twice already. But the gist of the story was that. There was an argument over player development. And it really the crux of it is that they start feeli to. And that Marvin Bagley is not playing as many minutes, as I guess some people in the front office would want him to I cannot help that this is just a massive reflection of how well everybody else in the top five is doing, you know, because they're. Eating minutes. Right. So eight and and Jaren Jackson and dodge and try young putting a big numbers and they're playing big minutes and Bagley is not playing big minute. Then so I suppose it is Brandon Williams it seems as responsible as a member of the front office for the Bagley stuff. And so the idea would be, hey, if my guy were playing big minutes he'd be putting up numbers like these other guys, and I don't wanna look like an idiot here. And so, but but it it's that's the kind of stuff that happens in front office. All the time. What does not happen is that kind of conversation getting leaked to the public, which is that to the catastrophe of all of it? 'cause things have been going so well for Sacramento. Absolutely, right. If it weren't for that story right warrant for that. You'd be looking at the same like, oh my goodness. Sacramento. Kings are nine eight. Your thoughts candidate for most improved player of the year..

"I'm still not a huge fan of him. But there's no denying to ability. The point. There is denying it and the point is really wall series dying, by the way. I mean, I if you want to have a conversation about defense we can. But I mean, what are you doing -fensive Lii is I mean that's less than replacement level at this point right now right now. In the world for him. But the guy stinks. So far wall is the poison pill. Thirty eight million forty one million forty four million forty seven million in the last year. If I honestly think it's not Phoenix had who has desperately just wanted somebody. I do wonder if there is another suitor for him. I could see Phoenix throwing together some of their young pieces that may not all fit together. And and Ryan Anderson contract and a couple of things and maybe able to attain wall. 'cause like you say, they always get meetings. But they never get players. You know, this would be a way for yes. He's over priced. But it would be a way to attain one of the better players in the league. Even if he is like I say on a bad deal, you know, and enter trying to win. I don't know. What do you think I wouldn't trade for John wall? If I were the Phoenix Suns. I think. You have a solid young roster. You about to have another high draft pick and cap space coming up make your team appealing, and then you can go out and get the guy that actually helps your team win on the Phoenix Suns. I would not trade for John wall. I think if the pelicans again, you know, within the context of what I just said, you need to convince Anthony Davis a sign that five-year max deal you need to convince him to stay around. You need him to feel that there's hope in a chance to win. If you're the pelicans on the other hand, maybe you trade for John wall because of his diminished value, and the fact, you know, what maybe an Alvin gentry system fast. You know lot lot. Lot of transition offense. John wall loves plan in transition. He's never played with a player as great as Anthony Davis. Maybe that could work out. But if I were Phoenix Suns. No, I wouldn't. But pelicans think about it. Speaking of wall based on the current estimate three players in the league, we'll make more than him in twenty nineteen twenty twenty if I have. This right harden will make a sane because it's the same supermax. The other three players are Steph curry, Chris, Paul Russell Westbrook. I mean, he is paid like a mega star. But he's not there's only three players in the whole damn league that are gonna get paid more money than him. That's it. I mean, I don't know. I don't know how you find a deal for him. So what ended up happening with the wizards? How did this come to a head Kev? I don't know, man. I think Washington makes one move. Honestly, I'm I'm almost more intrigued from like the New Orleans annual because I think they have to take risks somewhere. And I would love for them to get Bradley Beal, I think he fits perfectly next holiday. I just don't think they have the assets to get that done. I think if Washington were to deal Bill, they will get a pretty good turn. But I'm not sure if you're Washington even want to do that Beal's only twenty five he's got a build around. I think the priority needs to be figuring out what you can get for John wall. And maybe New Orleans just makes sense take that alternate risk with the hopes of keeping Anthony Davis..

Say there's one guy that the numbers you brought up because I just feel like John was even more hurt than that, but I guess is because barely be heard a lot too. So it's always wanted him out of Horta me heard about About to. to show that boy, that bags they'd be here. There's one person that listens to this podcast, and you know who you are because I blocked you. He believes that I hate John wall. Because I do not know he must not watch any of my videos or he's must have listened to. One episode is podcast, probably one, but every time I tweet, why do you hate John Wallace? This response? I mean, you can't really do that because like you can't. You have to vividly wash because what happened? So you might see me down in the hall. I mean the books, but then you might get a episode like this, but I'll tell you like they not bad like they have a chance, but how did they ever say anything negatively about John wall? There's really not anything negative to say. You could say he's not a good shooter, but I mean, you're supposed to. That's the point of this as the show. All right. All right. You're right. But I'm just saying like for him enough MSA that I hate somebody year. That's just this. He got. He got blocked by What what are are you you. have is it was it was a picture of him, what's respectable because I mean on the internet. Stay in there like you gotta. We gotta show every facet of everything and yeah, so like there's no person I got like one of my favorite players, but he can't shoot. He has the the, the bonds. They have good things about. I'm talking about the good thing. This episode. Next episode you might say. I mean about can be better than about blah and say, man, I think eventually they're not going to be that good the bucks. Yeah, they they got. They got pieces to be good. Their front core is whereas struggles. Yeah, because Christopherson is a great defender, air Bledsoe's a pretty sight. If any, the defender is even Tony, snails. I just protecting the rim. I'm going gonna put it to be. Janas don't before they have flexibility, but I would play on us at the four. But if they rode out Ersan Ilyasova I'm not gonna be mad at, you know. Complimentary on. That's a big is. Yeah, but you get to their play maker more to fifteen minutes a game, please because you will go bless though. He would be small ler smaller new goal, Middleton Jaanus Ilia, soul brook Lopez. That's the big Leonard. Yeah, that's their big line. But even even their small line, not small, Malcolm Brogdon six, Tony Schnell at the two. Yeah, probably brogden. It's only brogden. Middleton. Jaanus Middleton. Six, seven. You can say Brooke out earlier Sovan after five. Sheesh. Yeah, they got some definitely flexibility in a new colts that's going to be better because last year this over play Putin hose. What was it last Jay Triano was at their coats.

He went through the bucks, they told him go get him, and that's how we got a stupid. I hate his prime. Have you ever played the game? The connection game. Maybe we'll do it on a show. One time, I would say a player like LeBron James say, also another player like Russell Westbrook, and y'all got to say where they meet up at like John. I like LeBron James's teammate with this guy who seeming this guy was telling me this guy in eventually you get to Russell Westbrook like how to connect.

"He average five, three. Yeah, he's a rebound. He's a pretty good point. Yes. On rebel. Only one is Russell Westbrook, and I think Ben Simmons probably a better rebound just because he's biggest deuce. I like bigger guys who do everything I'm Lonzo ball is also up there. I'm not saying you're wrong. I like I like Ben Simmons is because I mean, he also had also I feel like plays at a better team. Compliment dead teams is perfectly built Orion. Yes. Any shooters. That's why like my deal player. He's a person that could do everything around just a team. It had to be superstars. But question a weapons. Hypothetically speaking, if they switch teams, there's Ben Simmons play as well as he day last year with the roster that John wall has. Does he play as as good as John always he plays is he plays good. It's been some as they last year does. He could say you the eight at what he averaged eight says eight eight says a rebounding Ariza eighteen seventy seven eighteen eighteen eighteen points. Sixteen eighteen sixteen. But the question still staying so of John wall was on the seventy Sixers last year. Sixteen eight. John wells on the seventy Sixers last year. Does he capitalize off that? Probably right. Yeah. Capitalize on the Philadelphia seventy Sixers. In big. I mean, the winter's teams is exactly like the Sixers, except that they don't have to join them me. They have Otto porter and rarely be shooters Marquis. Moore's can shoot all right, but you know, you're not like a stretch for and they just don't have any. Then they had a death. So you'd think they'd been saying average more points with the wizards, but. Yeah, I hear you, but I think I think John wall. Awesome. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, just because I think best have less weapons. But I think in be held Ben Simmons be better also. What would like taking the pressure off of them a better, a better outlet pass to. I mean the seventy six more. Hey, we're taught isn't like pick and rolls now. He's a good thing to get the ball to. He's a number. He's basically the number one guy for them. If they need a bucket, they're going Joe. John Simmons assists don't come off and beat them shoe because Embiid is a type of deal when you just give him the ball, he's on work. So that's not even an assist. If I had time, I would find that alpha. So isn't that a lot of his where? How many assists he averaged to Joe. Slotted assistant comes off the pick and roll. And now we have shoe defense collapse on, thrown into JJ, Redican going on our hometown, start going to him. Pick and rolls himself as the roll man, because he's a pretty good play metadata that who when a Ben Simmons sets a pig in off the road. I can't be managed to offer take John wall means our job all the truth to me, but I just feel like Ben Simmons with his team the Sixers, I'm gonna take that team. I don't think the wizards are no way shape or form on the seventy Sixers. No way y'all. Y'all t the wizards on the same? No, they're not on the same level. The level of any of those teams are the top three, no audio on the level of the Indiana Pacers. Yeah, that's arguable. Okay, that's argument. So right, they should be fighting for the four. Yeah, Fassi. I mean, it should be fighting for one, but that's they'll probably end up have bugs had a better season than wizards are disappointed in the wizards. I'd be friends of the bugs had a better season in the woods. I just went out the bucks out because they got a new coach and they haven't MVP player. Now I wouldn't be surprised to happen and they have Middleton. Can be all star. Fucking Ivan is a guy role player, Burke Lopez. Should they got? They got a little more shooting around. So a solid. I don't know if when he wanted to be. Yeah, yeah, he has moments so that team that team ain't shit. That's why we were talking about the Washington Wizards a few episodes ago..

In a close game I need. I don't need a guy that just going to be at a pass the ball really well, because one of the other guys are hidden, what is he going to do to help me? Then his other guys aren't making scene John where I'll be very out of control and lose a game I have to. That's not set up. He's he's not the perfect play for sure. I'll see Russel west. We do the same thing. I don't think. Okay. No, but I'm just saying point. There's point right now is just like John wall is a more complete player in anything. And what he said. I'll probably still take him really. To win a game, seven right now, you won't bend semblance. How many game seven for the no one. No one knows who they're not the type of people that one one guy don't wanna game. They're not Kobe. Bryant's caveat. I know. But if one of them has kill mentally and I think John wall and I've been sums. So you think what's the killer mentality. She going to leave it all on the table. He gonna go out and do his best to win. Then on the Ben Simmons will, but John wall's going to have a way better Stanley says, yeah, Stanley. Don't those go hand in general, has steadily his team is going to games that wise, but he's still out normally. Yeah, I know. And that's not in them. That's. They took the number one seat to seven games. Last year wants to eat with. It was six. Somebody corrected us dig. Oh, six. And then once he gets swift right after that wants to eat, ain't really can. Yeah, but they also loves it a because that number one, the can't handle John wall. And that's a fact they point guard cannot hand. I'm putting putting to Asterix next to last season for them because they had a lot of chemistry in injuries. But before that they were like four, five c, they always been around that realm. Zahn want in the wizards definitely need more respect than than their view of last year because there are a lot better. They're better team the better than that, and then they just upgraded to white from Gorz. Yup. Nip significant upgrade doesn't really out to the Hornets.

Those are the only two big point guard Russell. I like point guards, say street, Russell, Westbrook, so. Okay. Okay. Okay. Ben Simmons. Amazing playmaker. What else does he brings to the floor for you? And he helps in transition defensively, you can block shots now he's John. Well, good. I mean, isn't that except for every bounded. Okay.

So every board out the glass. Land. Steph curry isn't an amazing rebound but we list him as number one who's wanted me. Who Russell Westbrook's.

I mean, just give me the top in the league right now. Russell west restaurants record. Okay. But after after that we John wall's Harry raving. Are you taking John wall covering now? Oh, okay. What's his name? The only one of those people are Li rebounds at the point guard position and they're all elite rebound. Yes, it does help that Russell Westbrook gets the rebound and they go, go, go, essentially. What did you say? No, nobody's saying is essential, but it's a part of basketball. So we mentioned and this is another thing that business can do. Okay. But like, yeah, but it's, I think it's very, my stripling shooting is not, but that rebound and helps him in this best part is game was in open court. What else case you get?

I think they're the best team, so they're not saying level they right after dose thirteenth, but I wouldn't be surrounded. They stuck in threes. So you do think they, they can. When you got a superstar point guard. History. Don't be scared and say, whatever the hell you want to see this. I'm just saying that the wizards cannot be and you can't sleep on your scale. Writ every scared wrist..
