Philadelphia Phillies beat New York Yankees 11-7 at home to open twin bill
"The Yankees allowing eleven runs illusion, the opener, the double header with the phillies yesterday, and then they ran into Aaron Nola. In the NIGHTCAP, he gave them all sorts of trouble, but eventually, they got into the Philadelphia both another three to pitch to talk. Line. In the right field, that survey? That's GonNa find the gap. Stanton will score. Harper gets back in talk man stops at second. So a rig double for Mike Talk in the Yankees take a two one lead, ricky. Ricardo. seventh-inning call here on the fan I will say one of the things I like about the no fans is getting to hear the dugout. Big Hits. It sounds like you're at a high school game in central New Jersey on a Wednesday afternoon. He's guys are getting all pumped up there on the bench on the balls, put in play, and you can hear some of that on the broadcast or shallow with an RBI single. He was two for three and the bullpen closed out a three one victories. They split the twin bull, the twin bill rather at Citizens Bank I. Seven inning experience for Aaron. Boone Company? What did he think about? About the first one was too short, and then this one was just right. Make sense considering they dropped the opener before the seventh inning rally Nola struck out twelve over six innings. But the Yankee pitchers kept them in the game as well. Jonathan Isaac. Open, he got seven outs followed by Avalon. Green Auto Vino in Britain the latter earning his fifth save Luke void homered in the second.

Orlando Magic's Jonathan Isaac explains why he didn't take knee or wear Black Lives Matter shirt Friday
"We had an incredible opening weekend of games name a star level player that player delivered at least once if not twice over the first three or four nights of the NBA's restart here in Orlando, we had crazy comeback wins. By the Houston Rockets, we had a dominant performance by. Jaanus over some little pesky pip squeak team from New England I forget who they might be. We got Marcus smart got fined for trying to work the officials. We've got storylines upon story lines. The clippers bounce back from their loss to the Lakers. Looking excellent and just throttling the New Orleans Pelicans. There's so many different directions that we can go Michael that I decided. Here's what we're GONNA do opening weekend heaters we're GONNA have just open ended questions are we're going to ping pong back and forth you give me your answers I'm going to give you my answers to these questions and try to cover as much ground as possible before we get there though I do want to double back quickly on the national anthem demonstrations that we touched on last episode, we got so many thoughtful emails from various members of the open floor globe on this subject, but I think there was a major development after we spoke on Friday. and. That involve Jonathan Isaac Meyers. Leonard Gregg Popovich Becky Hammon and one of the NBA referees all deciding to not kneel to not really participate in what had been in unified demonstration on Thursday. All of those people who chose to stand were obviously doing it on principle and they were doing it knowing there was going to be a lot of attention their direction. Now, if you look at Popovich amend the referee essentially, they were trying to just say, Hey, I support the the Social Justice Movement it's it's a private or personal decision for the referee said look I it's important to me to stand Meyers Leonard made a similar comment. Essentially. Saying that his brothers military service in the in the military service of close people in his life led him to WanNa stand to salute the flag. But within Isaac was a slightly different case and he actually used this entire demonstration opportunity to almost have a one man demonstration of his own. In his belief, the idea of the black lives matters movement quote unquote doesn't go hand in hand with supporting black lives. He also said that you know we shouldn't be necessarily judging things solely based on skin color that we should be trying to live a life basically you know in God's mold and try to live up to his standard, and that Jesus Christ was his personal savior and and that he wanted everyone to focus on that. Aspect of of living rather than the particular issue that was being brought forward with the black lives matter movement by the players he didn't really get any major pushback. Within the NBA Community people respected his right to make a stand. He actually not only did he stand during the national anthem? He didn't wear a black lives matter t shirt which many people notice because he was essentially the only player not to do that his whole personal story Michael took a crazy twist over the weekend and sad twist when he wound up tearing his ACL injury that's going to end his time here in Orlando obviously but also could cost him all of next season. So now talk about a whirlwind seventy, two hours for player who generated millions of us with his comments about the protests. I'm curious. Let's start with Jonathan Isaac. What did you make of his decision? After we've seen things settle in the last couple of days You know maybe it doesn't seem quite as Eye Opening as it did at that moment, but I'll admit I was I was surprised to see given the buy in from everybody on opening night. Right, I mean I just WanNa Start and say that it it really really is a bummer to see anyone get injured but particularly is ICK who was already on restriction he was already playing with a humongous brace on his leg from a previous injury that cost him a majority of this regular season before it was suspended. So I just I feel for him greatly. I I think generally speaking. The coverage of who stands in who sits I mean we talked about this heading in anticipated it I. Think I think the coverage is generally besides the point and it doesn't really get the point I feel like people are using. This as an opportunity to shame those who are standing in a little bit I mean Meyers Leonard. said, he couldn't sleep before he made the decision to stand and that's just like not. The whole focus or the point here right like. You can obviously Support Black lives and also stand for the national anthem. It is a symbolic gesture that is what it is in the case of Isaac. I really had a difficult time understanding even what his message was until you interpreted it the way that you did I mean I watched the clip of Him Multiple Times survey there I'm GonNa just GonNa read what he said I and then we can use that as a jumping off point because I don't WanNa torture what he said earlier and I might have done that. So sorry for that. He says quote absolutely I believe that black lives matter kneeling while wearing a black lives matter t shirt doesn't go hand in hand with supporting black lives. I. Don't think kneeling or putting on a T. shirt for me personally is the answer i. Feel like for me, black lives are supported through the Gospel. All lives are supported through the Gospel. We all have things that we do wrong. Sometimes, it gets into a place of pointing fingers. We all fall short of God's glory whoever will humble themselves and seek God and repent of their sins. We can see our mistakes and people's mistakes and evil in a different light. Racism isn't the only thing that flags our society, our nation and our world, and he basically said he wanted this conversation to get out of the realm of skin color because the answer to all of our problems in everything that goes on in our world is Jesus. So. when I watched the clip. I'll I'll be honest. I was a little confused where he was going to after typing it all out trying to marinate on what he was saying I think he essentially wanted to have a demonstration on behalf of his religious beliefs and that this was an opportunity for him to say look you know focusing only on one particular group I. Guess in his view, the black lives matter group and you know everybody wearing a t-shirt doesn't necessarily achieve the wider goal which would be presumably healthy living. You know honest living you know Living which to him as a higher priority I think that's where he was going with his statements.
"jonathan isaac" Discussed on Speak For Yourself with Cowherd & Whitlock
"Box for shows. Anthony. Davis had the seven shots in the whole game eighty had one shot attempt the fourth quarter matching one shot attempt in the fourth quarter against the clippers last week. But Davis said, he would quote making a right read how? We're joined now by FDA analysts, Lick Ric, Bucher, Marcellus, I'm GonNa Start with you. The Lakers be worried about Anthony Davis at all. Yeah, they should be worried. It's happening It is sad to see because this guy is unguarded like outside a healthy Kevin Durant, who's obviously not healthy right now, D lar, just just a physics of is just too much. The guy was a guard had a growth spurt and became whatever you WanNa call them almost feet and could do everything. The problem is this. Is Turning into all Dale here they go. Again, playing won't Lebron's as we know what happens. Let me just give you the Plato version of Lebron James and whoever plays with him especially when it comes down to the fourth quarter and this is the problem with. Whether you want to call it off fatigue issue or just got to play by scheme issue in the fourth quarter. Lebron. Going to take over and he's going hit his long fade away two or three pointer or Those we know it. But the thing is Lebron needs clearance and when he gets his FA. Clarence, guess where. A lot of times it position. He doesn't WanNa be and usually positions that he's not in for the first three quarters. So has happened the clippers, the team that we all know inevitably, they have to beat the get to the championship. Two Point two point four points. Two points, no points in the fourth quarters that's was happening ad. He's getting putting compromise positions in this one game. This one off he was shooting well, then obviously, he got to the line of Bunch, but it still doesn't really gloss over the greater issue playing with Lebron puts even the greatest players and uncomfortable positions. I just can't get over Clippers Fan Marcellus Wiley expressing disappointment and sadness anthony. Davis isn't coming through. Metals Thrift. Not This compromise version come on. Look, here's the reality Anthony Davis. They should be worried about Anthony Davis, if they were expecting things from Anthony Davis, Anthony Davis has not done, which is lead a team to a championship. This is all about Lebron James and it's always going to be about Lebron James I was actually stunned to look at some of the numbers I'm not always a statistics analytics guy, but sometimes they jump out at you and they say things that you can't ignore. Eighties numbers between wins and losses with the Lakers are virtually indistinguishable has nothing to do with what he produces on the other hand. Lebron. James his numbers when he scores he scores efficiently from. The floor from free throws and three point The point are is alarming the difference, and so it goes to the point, meanwhile, his rebounding and his assists pretty much the same. Bottom Line is when Lebron? James's scoring scoring efficiently, the Lakers win. That is their formula for success. So if on the Lakers I'd be worried because I am relying on a thirty five year old. To. Be If not my best defender, my second best defender and my closer through this panda, this shutdown and this bubble where they're going to be playing a multitude of games in a very short period of time, but ad is who eighty and has always been. So the idea that he somehow letting them down is would suggest that they had unrealistic expectations. Expectations for well, you do have those kind of expectations, rip when you bring him into. La. That's the goal. That's the hope is that you know maybe he will change his spots right, and this is why the Lakers should be worried because to your point slick, this isn't the same Lebron of two thousand seven. There's going to score his team's final twenty. Twenty. Five points and lead them to a chip Lebron just doesn't have that kind of juice in the tank. So if I may d you after realize you gotta show up with that kind of dog think about the Brandon ad when they combined for sixty points, the Lakers or twelve one when they don't, it's a far stretch from a good record. So ad has to realize, yes, this is Lebron's team, but HDD, can't go ghost in the fourth quarter. Marcellus already gave you a staff in the fourth quarter against the clippers, but that's not an outlier. API. In the first quarter eight point, two points a game second five, point, one, thirty, eight, point nine, but then the fourth quarter comes around and. The average is four point, nine points a game. You can't just go out there taking one making one field goal attempt in the fourth quarter when your team needs you like these are bona fide superstar, bona fide superstars, do bona fide superstar things, but most importantly big time players make big time plays them big time games, ladies of big time player. He has two big time things all the time, not just every now and then. Okay hold on I. Push back on this idea is a bonafide. OR BONA FIDE Superstar? 'cause when his he made those big plays. Especially, if we're talking postseason, when has he ever led a team? He had seven seasons in New Orleans. They lucked into the eighth spot one year when the Oklahoma City thunder were all being DOPP and injured, and they won the tiebreaker. They then went to the second round when Rajon Rondo drew holiday outplayed CJ mccollum and Damian Lillard and a d. put up great numbers against use of Merkich, but I haven't seen that kind of performance from ad on a consistent basis, and now to your point, we're talking about doing Manila. We're talking about this, not just good gets into the playoffs, not get into the second round. You're supposed to win a championship with an for. Lebron. James. If you're expecting a D. to deliver that, then you have to be saying he's never done it. It before, but he's going to do it now, and at this point is career, I'm not buying that guy is suddenly going to do something that I didn't see him do in the previous seven season. Ozcelik ricky just won me over skilled big men playing with Lebron that didn't have tremendous success as a number one elsewhere before Chris boss, they were struggling in Toronto in a playoff, even though Chris boss number one, Kevin Love. Then he plays with the BRA. Now, a d., the any of those guys before play better will librado works. Here. We go. Again, I'm not here for I'm not near foreign. Me For your Sav Liftoff Cam Newton, we'll have to earn the starting job in New England according to Bill Belichick? WHO said quote? We'll give everyone in opportunity. Join our. Jimmy..

"Wouldn't shock me if the Oklahoma. City to four five in a win and they beat the Lakers and then but and and just to let you guys know right and and Uh Nick Costas was telling us about this. If you're holding that ticket at says, Oklahoma City Toronto and they somehow get past the Lakers and they're all of a sudden in the Western Conference finals well, cautious was explaining you can take ticket and if Toronto still alive in and obviously the ticket is still alive. So you had Toronto and and and you had Oklahoma City in the conference finals you could do some magic. Offsetting that. You can hedge your back so you can become out of winter either way. So there's a there is some benefit I don't. I. Didn't fully understand it but I think some you guys that are in the gambling world probably could our job to tell you like what Brian just said Oklahoma City in Toronto are way closer to the NBA Finals in Vegas is giving them credit for, and if you could hold that ticket in both guys are live and some of the favorites are knocked out, you might be able to head your bed and get some money on this one. Yes I think the main takeaway there for us when I understand the gambling. Angola. But certainly, we don't know it as well as our friends on you better. You Bet Nicole dose ally Hershkovich Lacson, all those guys but take away their scale right the casinos don't want obviously or the house doesn't want you to only put down one hundred dollars and then potentially when thirty thousand dollars that's a disaster. For them. So yeah, if okay see advanced in Toronto advanced I think what those books would do is come to whoever has that ticket and say Hey Scott I know you could win thirty thousand. Would you take I? Don't know what the number is five or eight or ten today, and we'll just tear up that ticket and you get the check guaranteed regardless of how the rest of the playoffs goes. So in hindsight scale I wished I'd actually made that rather than just tweeting about it like a moron. That's a different story for. Another day. With that we'll take we'll take a quick break here. Ryan mcdonagh and Brian scalise brainy. We'll be back with you. After this break, you're listening to scallon question. Actually. One question what? Can you look up that same but it is today I wanNA know like How much? Is it since you tweeted that out. Well. Even though I only have like less than two thousand twitter followers, some would say I do move the line some dealmaker. You know here's Scott like people tune in with my four and one record and even though the guys and you better you better hating on me I lost last night I picked Milwaukee last night Even though a guy like Nikko says a horrible pick with the Utah Jazz over Oklahoma City when I was on the other side of that one and I blew him out on Saturday. Despite all that scale. Yeah, I think we will look up the odds after this break, we will get back to our listeners with the updated finals odds for the match up between the Oklahoma, city thunder and the Toronto Raptors you're listening to and watching GALS ON RADIO DOT com..

"I don't have them or billy billy has their own issues that we should get into. But Toronto is better down the stretch Boston is better down the stretch man Miami might better stretch been then watching the Milwaukee Bucks down the stretch. Yeah I agree with all that schedule. A Milwaukee has not looked good. They're one and one they beat the Celtics on Friday night a controversial call that was overturned on Yana sorta filed out of the box on to win that game. Then they lost yesterday to the Houston. Rockets in one of the things that stood out to me thinking about the game overnight the rockets box game from yesterday is that it could have been worse for the books and the rocket shots. When you watch the Game Scown, watch the film, the rockets were getting wide open shots especially. In the corner PJ. Tucker, did not shoot the ball. Well, he had a great defensive impact, but he was getting wide open looks and I'll be interesting. See scale other teams try to do what Houston did last night obviously, the rocket style is extremely unique attempted sixty one three point shots in a regulation game what scale what Houston was doing to Milwaukee's defense that is designed first and foremost to protect the rim and protect the basket in wall off the pain. Basically that meant that in yesterday's game Milwaukee conceded wide open three point shots to the Houston Rockets. And it's not even like that's hard on the Game Plan Ryan. All you have to do is drive the ball and hold the corner you WanNa have a guy each corner because. Where in the NBA now, with these three point shooting getting so much better than it ever has been. You know ever want to commit more than two to the ball really wanNA commit one and a half, and you're thinking what is a half a guy to the ball? Well, have a guy meet. You have a guy on the ball and you can play a guy and it's still be close enough to get back to your. So you have your halfway here halfway there. So one of the half is ideal deepens. The Milwaukee Bucks we have the most link in. The basketball you think about the Lopez brothers and any honest, and they can block shots and everything like that. Sometimes, they commit three guys to the ball. So I'm not I'm not buying that. If you can all you have to do is crack their first line of defense in hidden corners and you're GONNA get corner threes all day long. That's how the bucks that's how the bucks defense is going to be designed to stop teams in the playoffs but maybe Make some adjustments to that. But man if if you get if you get thirty corner threes like the Rockets Scott, the other day I don't see how the bucks beat you. Yes scale you played in the League for eleven years you coached in the League and I set that up to ask the following question. Do you think that starting in the second round of the playoffs or whenever the series and the Games get tight for the Milwaukee Bucks, there will be more pressure on Milwaukee and Mike noser in that entire franchise given what happened to the bucks last year when they were up to on the Eastern Conference finals before they fell apart in Toronto came back and won four games in a row to win the series and go to the NBA finals. Absolutely and not only that but the lingering effective. Jaanus and his contract situation. There's one way Yana saint leaving Milwaukee because he's going to La Eighties Hollywood he ain't going to Miami, because all man of south beach it's GonNa be great to live down here. But he will leave. If you don't believe that the guys around him are going to help them win a championship and listen I don't necessarily agree with that. I think Janas to be good enough to win a championship. But Man, what if you watch them play down the stretch it's like. A team takes on the personality of their star. And their star is by far by far. More than. Lebron. The best player for for the first forty, four minutes of the NBA game. He is dominant defensively rebounding open court one on one, but in the last four minutes. You gotta go down a big list of guys before I would be like you know what I really like Jaanus on the floor in the last four minutes of a really close game and I love you I'm not hating on you honest or any I love yawn it. Is, probably my son's favorite players Jaanus I love everything he's about but in the fourth quarter. The TV, the Milwaukee Bucks, who I in my opinion, Janas Wills, wills to game I'm going to try my hardest to win this game bucks. Sometimes he's got gotta be just I. Guys At. Got This like we. We have Paul Pierce. We knew Paul Pierce was in control of a game late in the game. Garnet saw Garnett like felt confident. We also had Ray Allen who also? ultra-confident down the stretch. When you're around that, you get the confidence as well. I'm not sure the bucks I think the bucks take on the personality of the honest and that's Not Ideal. This point of his career. One random question scale isn't your son's favorite player shouldn't your son's favorite player Bu instead of honest I got a good story about you WANNA hear starting. So I played a big three right and I know the guy who makes the Big Three Jersey so I hook him. I'm trying to hook his son up with internship with Boston he's like thanks cow I was just doing it kind of my heart. So he's like, Hey, I'm gonNA get your your your kids jerseys right on something I'm thinking great. Let me go home and ask them when they want the white. Mama. Green they want to yellow they went to whatever right I go home I say son. Like which which White Mama Jersey do you want? You want the green one? This one he said actually dad can I get a Joe Johnson Jersey that says I. I. Can't hey man I can't hate. That's not where I expected you to go with that given that he's your son and I thought he would ask for Miami Heat Jersey that says igwe group economics on the bottom. Now my daughter is asking for that. Okay. I admit Yana she doesn't understand what group economics are but. She she does like she actually wants it to say g economics. So in that group economic g DOT. Economics. Okay. Maybe we can make that happen. I'll talk to Andy Ellsberg Adam Simon and my friends in the Miami Heat Front Office or listen to this show maybe they can hook them up through the equipment guy. Scale any final thoughts on the game's over the weekend or the Games that had been played so far in Orlando before we wrap up the segment. Boy Big Perk talked about Toronto Raptors and so did our boy Rick Euchre. They are for Real Ryan, mcdonagh tweeted out the other day. Thirty Thousand Dollars Hundred Dollar Bet and when you thirty thousand dollars if you pick the raptors and Oklahoma City, thunder to go to the finals like I that is that is that obviously it's not a lot but we're one hundred dollar bet that's the best odds you'll ever get one hundred dollar bit. Appreciate the shoutout Brian scale rainy am I thought was looking at the numbers it looked wrong now obviously, that's not the favourite matchup isn't the favorite to you know to happen in the finals is still somewhat of a long shot. But looking at some of the flaws with the teams that a lot of people like the odds on favorites the Milwaukee Bucks which we've talked a lot about this show the LA. Lakers who were beaten pretty good by the Toronto Raptors on Saturday night I don't think it's out of the realm of possibility scale my point and I think the same way is there's not a lot of difference between those quote unquote top teams especially the ways the guy in the way the guy's in Vegas, the Lakers clippers, bucks they have on a on a pedestal. Some serious flaws with those teams? Especially, the Bucks Lakers and then the second tier contenders Toronto is higher in that group from a betting perspective. Then is Oklahoma City but I think you and I think that gap is not really that significant and maybe there's really not even that much of a gap at all..

"Today's NBA Games from Sunday August second down in Florida showed up to everyone joining us live right now on Youtube we see you much love to everyone listening to the podcast a little bit later on the Athletic Network Apple spot if I were because you're classics. Thank you so much. I'm Jay skeets and joining us here on a Sunday night on the zoom tasks mellows yeah. Pop Up people. We got the bearded one, Trey Kerby Hail The international man of mystery taking it to the Max wearing a different Jersey tonight Lee Ellis. and. Or I should say Amigos managing. Goes and last but not least, the madge Kaplan Gd L. There is an here. We are get right into it on Sunday night because we got a lot of games to talk about some good ones and we got some fun a little bit later in the show I got some questions for you. Now that every team has played, you know once or twice. But I WANNA know guys do you want the good news I or the bad news I? What do you want? Tell me start with a bad man stop with a bad get it out of the way. started the good. Okay trade you decide the ultimate decision. On feeling positive today hit me with that good news. Okay. Okay. I liked that. We're starting to good news. The good news is buddy healed stuck our first official Wedgie from the NBA Bobble. Yeah. Baby brings us to thirty seven on the season. Now, Patty Mills also duck one in the Spurs Grizzlies game but it came well well after the whistle that's a dead ball Wedgie we don't count those but. Way To go buddy, we give us number thirty seven was our first. We had a bunch of scrimmages we decided we can't play whether or not. We should count those. We said no scrimmage games. So we got one task thirty, seven, thirteen ago cooking we are thirteen to coach I. Hope for those people out there who think we're GONNA get to fifty I think forty, four's. Nice number for everybody or your undershoot and a man were getting fifty for sure. We had the question coming in the ball's going to be stickier. The answer is, yes we saw two preseason wedgies. We saw this one. We saw the patty mills after Wedgie had a pigeon on top of the backboard. The ball is sticking in Orlando Sixty is on the board if you ask. You've been spending a little too much time on the water in a boat. You're going a little batty. Could. Be had their Sunday. Scary. Tk. Look forty. Four? Tasks, I still hold out some hope we get a little bit more than that fifty s gonna be tough but. Would have been nice that Patty one off was. Spectacular, that was a deep deep wedge. Good Crisp thought in. Basketball still alive yes. Man I mean he launched that it was you know he was going to take that short. Anyway I'm really I really liked it because it was just a beautiful where G. and that would have gotten off to a great start seconds after. It wasn't even close. It wasn't. Like a strategy, there's always a time delay maybe we can incorporate that into it somehow. Wow that's the next level I. Love that. All right. So we are at thirty seven wedgies if you're keeping track and the magical number is fifty, can we get there? We count the playoffs of course. All right. Let's get to the bad news magic forward Jonathan Isaac. He badly reinjured his left knee on a drive to the basket tonight split to kings defenders he went for like the jump stop in the lane and the knee buckled. No player hit him. He just straight up there collapsed to the floor. I saw I think it was Nick L. pointing out how trae watch this game with you I remember it eerily similar derrick rose sort of in two thousand twelve how it happened that jump stop sort of then buckling with the knee so Jonathan Isaac is wheelchaired out I don't know if we know the latest updates can't be good I mean. This is the same knee that took him out for months. He missed thirty plus Games. and. It's a real damper on a magic win another big win for them. That crushed the kings and they improve to two and all but but no Isaac I assume I don't know if you've got an update for me I'd say anything imagine we're going to see him though. For the rest of the seating games or the playoffs because the magic are locked to get in that sucks. Yeah definitely. Sucks. And it's probably the reason you saw a guy like Kelly oubre decide to take the season off to to make sure he was totally healed up right. I don't know. You you come back from an injury, and then you have four months off to recuperate you think everything's going to be fine but maybe maybe it changes once you get actually into some competitive basketball I saw that tweet too. So I didn't go looking for the injury because I remember watching that game and and the result I remember on that day it happened thinking maybe it's not that bad. Maybe he'll just be out for a little bit. Then it was like I don't know six years later before Derrick rose played again. Yeah, and this is obviously a talented player for the magic. Top defensive player. I don't think that's a stretch to say even maybe in the limited minutes he was getting here early on because it wasn't like they were throwing out there were thirty five minutes or something like that. Slowly working back in I think he played what something like fifteen minutes, two games both of these, and he was just trying to get his rhythm back here after missing basically all a twenty twenty injured it on January first what you think their tasks. I I just did not like seeing that leg do what it did. It was very, very sad immediately Aaron Gordon was asked about it post game and and he didn't know the extent of the injury, but he was just so sad for the man Jonathan Isaac and. The type of guy. He is such a standup guy in how hard he's worked to get back with that same knee that had been injured. So it's just yeah obviously. Very very sad and such a dynamic player. Will this take away his athletism I you know let's just get him healthy but Yeah. It could be a really debilitating injury because it just looked so bad even though it was under a sleeve and a knee brace that he was wearing you could just see something literally physically happening out there. For sure I was thinking about it too. Before it happened earlier today I was just thinking about like the basketball we've watched all these shows. been doing and I'm like, wow, we've actually had pretty solid basketball has been competitive games. Guys look pretty good. There are obviously rested. That's great and I was like, oh, man, we haven't really had an injury like that's good. That's awesome. This is just somebody I was thinking to myself, and then of course, this happens night the real I like really bad injury to take out a guy. Hope it's the only one I really do. And again, that came in a magic win, they put up what are they asking one hundred and thirty points here through their first two games a been on fire. If you go back to the actual season in terms of scoring the ball and they're going to be pretty much a lock right for the seven see like they're very likely going to be playing the raptors again. Yup. In a first matchup and not going to have a guy that you would love even if he is playing twenty, twenty, five minutes whatever he could get up to. Against the raptors where you could stick him on a Siaka or you can put them on one of their obviously talented offensive players and try and slow them down. So that's tough the magic fans out there but they did get the win turns Russ flame thrower off the bench doing things as well, and only doesn't like..
Magic's Jonathan Isaac exits Sunday's game with apparent leg injury

I saw I think it was Nick L. pointing out how trae watch this game with you I remember it eerily similar derrick rose sort of in two thousand twelve how it happened that jump stop sort of then buckling with the knee so Jonathan Isaac is wheelchaired out I don't know if we know the latest updates can't be good I mean. This is the same knee that took him out for months. He missed thirty plus Games. and. It's a real damper on a magic win another big win for them. That crushed the kings and they improve to two and all but but no Isaac I assume I don't know if you've got an update for me I'd say anything imagine we're going to see him though. For the rest of the seating games or the playoffs because the magic are locked to get in that sucks.

"You got your your Bod casting with the mouse in your pocket every single say, we we. Their acute story. I mean, ultimately, they're very cute story. I don't think that they're built very well for the playoffs. I think that it's been pretty amazing how high they've been able to climb in the standings with such a bad record. I mean, again, you know, complete shade intended toward these conference, but like this final week playoff chase with all these teams fighting for six seventh and eighth and all the incredible back padding going on for the Brooklyn nets all this. It's like all right. Let's kind of keep it in perspective. I mean, Philly who I don't even really trust Philly should smoke whoever. They get in that three six, right? Don't you think five game series at at max, like should they be weeping potentially? Yeah. I'm with you. I mean, I don't really take any of these teams that seriously in the play offs. I do think that there's something to the idea that this actually does matter for the magic in part because like the last five seasons there have just been. So so bad. And we forget like I would look at magic games a couple years ago and see absolutely no hope. Absolutely, no plan. And then you start thinking like all right. So why is there a basketball team in Orlando? Like would anyone actually care if this team moved, and I'm sure we have listeners who would. But like it when you think about the big pig listener. I mean single Kevin d would be very upset. I'll know if there's any other it's out there. That's true. We have a couple magic super fans starting with Kevin de as but it's just like, I don't I don't know. And so when that's your baseline to then turn around and outperform expectations by ten or eleven games and really like kick ass at various points this year. And really if you late the magic season to last six weeks, they have been playing really really, well, I don't know what their schedule has been like over that span. But like the numbers are pretty impressive and. Jonathan Isaac is pretty impressive. I think the thing I worry about long term is like Busa vich. I still really see as a player you can win meaningful games with. I mean, he's been great for them this year. And I'm sure people are going to be like, what are you talking about? But like he's his defensive liabilities. Worry me a little bit. And so I wish they had a better solution. They're a they need guards. Let me hop on the savage defensing. I think he's made progress and shown that he can be pretty helpful within a scheme. Now is you're going to be a guy in the playoffs. Where if you're they're playing against are really good team. You could still pick on him. And find ways to explain them. I think so I mean their defense has improved and he's been playing lots of minutes. So I think I would give him some of that like he could be part of a functional team defense, especially with all those athletes. They've got around him. So I think in pretty good shape there. I think my big question though about usage is. Okay. It's always danger. When you've got the career year in a contract year. And it's like an aberration. Right. It's like he's never going to be more motivated at any point of his career. He was this season. Right. Because it's going to be good timing for him. There's not that many centers on the market Orlando. They're going to be facing a lot of internal pressure to pay up to keep them after this playoff. Chase. Right. No matter what kind of happens in the postseason. It's it's difficult to see them saying, you know, what thanks so much for like bending over backwards and sticking with us for six years Nikolaos. We're just gonna let you walk. You know, that's gonna be a pretty bitter pill to swallow. So if he does get paid they do keep him around. Okay. What does that mean for their team building? And can they expect him to continue to improve over the next two or three seasons?.

"It's going to be it's going to be religious in zoo Orlando decides to do their because does not HANA talent on that roster. But he certainly is talented, and you know, if they go if they decide not to bring him back, you know that somebody who might be close to a sure thing as he's at least a good player. That's a at somebody. We've seen do well in the past. So you would basically be potentially rescuing him walking away when he could potentially as you said be the best player on your team right now. Yeah. It's interesting whatever the magic drafted mogambo. I remember I reached out to Nick that night. And he was blindsided by you know, he didn't know that they were going to go after a big, man. But he said all the right things handle it the right way. Basically said, you know, look, I think he's his games very different than mine. We can complement each other. I wanna help mentor him. And if you talk to the guys Orlando know, that's exactly what he's been. He hasn't been someone that just going out for you know, trying to put up his own numbers and not care about the team. It's been cool to see him take on that mentor ship role in help agai like Moba or even guy like Jonathan Isaac. Or Aaron Gordon these guys that are younger than him. He's been really open to doing that. And I like to see that from a star player. I think it's great to see that from that kind of leadership. And the thing I'm excited to you know, he's one of the nicest guys in the world. So it's really easy to root for him. Whenever he signed his contract this pastime. He he got a contract extension rather than hitting free agency. So Healy is making twelve million dollars this year and really over the course of the entire contract. It's been a bargain deal. I remember the day that the deal got announced people were surprised that he was willing to take that rather than wait until free agency. So he's one of those guys that you know, probably is going to want a lot of money to just because he's already been taking pay cuts year after year because of the situation he was in. He kind of broke out right after signing that extension. So he's gonna probably want some money the family thing. Like, I said, though that factors in I know his wife loves Orlando. They like the idea of raising a child there. There's just a lot to take in. When you look at. Nation on and off the court because he like you said the magic do have mobile, but at some point you have to imagine what the pick that they used on him that he's going to be the center of the future. And then just the trajectory of of the magic young players. And Nick, he's twenty eight years old both those guys in that locker room are much younger. The question is if the magic turned into a contender are we gonna see on the on the next contending magic team? It seems like that would be unlikely because all the other guys need to hit their prime. And then by the time, they do that. He may be no longer producing at this level but props to him. I mean, he put it in so much work. I remember when he first started shooting threes and really working on that aspect of his game. I remember thinking, you know. Okay. This is something that he feels like he has to do just because of today's big men, and what's asked of them. I didn't necessarily think he would do this. Well, the now he's making almost three and a half per game shooting thirty eight point three percent from three fifty two percent from the field. I mean, it's not like he's going out..

"This is one of the reasons that you listen to KFC because after seven o'clock, a lot of people just kind of pack everything up, and they're like, oh, man. We're done for the day be fair that is late not one zero five three the fan. We eat dinner late here, and we also don't get acid reflux because of it. So here's what we're gonna do. I did a little bit since Duke law. We're going to do gloss. Just had a Tom's awesome. I liked it. Guys, come on come on. I'm trying to sell the young thing. For the. The and this is this is blowing up right now from Adrian which NAR. Ski douse Mavericks are escalating discussions to find a trade for point guard. Dennis Smith, junior Phoenix and Orlando have engaged in ongoing talks with Mavs Smith junior has sat out three straight games with what has been termed as a back sore sore back. And so we went to look at those two teams. What uber? What do they have to offer to the Dallas Mavericks? How can they swing a deal? What else is going to have to be included? Is it just Dennis Smith junior? Why Dennis Smith junior is? He not getting along is that why it's not working. We have tons of questions and work through them right now. Eight seven seven eight eight one one zero five three do you want to see this happen? You saw wash wars Naski seem to like very mean. Girlish the way he said that Dennis Smith junior sat out the last three games with what the team is. Calling a back injury like really questionable whether or not he actually thinks that he's heard it all so like, let's just look at it. I in terms of the draft pick right because the draft pick would make a lot of sense since the Mavericks don't have a first year or they probably won't have a first round draft pick. Right. And so or Landau is like a fringe playoff team in the east. And so if you made the move with Orlando, you'd be talking fourteen fifteen sixteen you know, somewhere around there Phoenix has the third worst record in the the fourth worst record in the league. So you're talking about, you know, potentially a top five pick, and maybe the lottery God's wouldn't screw us knowing that like we'll get the pick. Maybe since it's still tagged with Phoenix they'll do better in the lottery than we usually do. So I guess that would be a viable option because like I know de'andre Aiden and Devon Booker are fighting but deandre and was the number. One pick. And you just paid Devon Booker all of the money, but you also just got Kelly Oubre AA and do kind of wonder that somebody who was you know, mid round mid first round pick. He's only twenty three he. You know, he's a solid player. And right now like I love Dennis Smith junior because I saw him playing in college. But from what you've seen in the NBA, you'd probably just still say solid player. He hasn't necessarily done anything consistent basis to make you think that this kid is for sure gonna be a superstar. So I wonder if Bray would make sense for them, and then or for us, and then I know we kicked around the idea of mobile MBA. But I mean, I just don't see why the magic would be ready to move from a player like that. Exactly. But Parker brought a different name that I was fascinated by because he's been all kinds of not good. So far. Is Jonathan Isaac. So Jonathan Isaac. He was the number six pick a year ago and. When we talk when we talked about him, one of the things I said going into the draft was if you told me in ten years, the Jonathan Isaac would be the best player from this draft class. I would believe you. But if you told me he would be the worst player from this draft class. I would also believe you because Jackson, right? Exactly, exactly. Although Jaren Jackson is already playing better than Jonathan Isaac has in the NBA is because Jonathan Isaac. He played for one year at Florida state. He showed freakish athleticism and potential, but he was one of those things, and it was the exact same thing that we talked about with Jaren Jackson that you saw flashes. If you only like watch the mix tape or only saw clips of this kid, and you're like he'll be the greatest player in the NBA. But then you watched a whole game of that player. And you're like, oh, okay. So you see that in spurts? And then there are other spurts when he disappears and you look at Isaac this year. He you know, he said. Starts like most of the time. But not all of the time. He's averaging eight points a game five rebounds a game. So not particularly overwhelming. But if you're looking to make an asset swap these are two guys that were picked three spots apart in last year's NBA draft. And I do wonder if that would be a viable candidate. When when you might need to do a little work here. Kevin when Dennis Smith junior was selected so to drafts ago. Yup. Did phoenix. And Orlando pick before the Mavericks, so maybe tuned out for just half a second. Okay. Sorry. You're good. Okay. Yeah. Jonathan Isaac was Orlando's pick in that draft. And they passed on him. Of personality. I just because that was the guy. This was the guy they want it. I just think the potential draw of Isaac was higher because like Jonathan Isaac people thought had the potential to like be a perpetual all NBA team where people thought that, you know, Dennis Smith junior could be a really good point guard. Okay. But that's kind of where some people tough out. Plus discussions of maybe have an attitude, rob. Yeah. I'm just I'm trying to figure out what other teams passed on him before. And I think Phoenix what's the need? If two names like Phoenix. And Orlando pop up are they going to garner any other interest from any other teams because those two teams have now popped up in the in the conversation. And are these the only two teams that you know, 'cause what always happens is mystery team right out of nowhere here. Another team says, hey, we're interested in this. Or maybe they've been in talks before, but they really didn't go anywhere. And now this is a way to kind of move that a little further along with some other team. Okay. Well, can I just man? I'm I don't know why. I'm just really feeling the two thousand seventeen draft connection here. What about Josh Jackson? Josh Jackson to closer. Jim Jackson hosted Jim Jackson. That's true. Okay. One me ask you this. Kevin when you see it on her on like a stat sheet. It's going to say Jay Jackson. Yeah. That's true savings. Jim jackson. I just wanna point that I would be more concerned about his potential regression. Okay. This year, but you asked who they pass on or who did they pass on Dennis for they picked Josh Jackson with a number four pick. So these are all teams that have were in that exact same general vicinity for for Phoenix six for Landau nine for the Mavericks. They picked Josh Jackson, and he looked last year. Like, hey, hey, we might have something here. Thirteen points a game five rebounds a game shooting percentage. Could stand to be improved shooting percentage has not gone up. And now he's down to nine and a half points a game four rebounds a game. He's only a part time starter with them and like really a low time starter with them. All right. So in these positions are uniquely different the point out with Isaac and Jackson. They're two different types of players. So I'm trying to so here's the other thing. So your your idea is trading a player way and that players. Going to fill a role on my team whenever I get a guy back and his the idea is that Dennis Smith junior should be able to fill role on this. He should be right there next to next to Luca run with him. That's the that's the hope, and there are a couple of other names that we might dive into just a moment that would be awesome dreams. But the let's stick with the somebody told me a long time ago. A trade has never about the trade. It's about the next trade. And that's kind of when you look at Donnie, Nelson and the way he likes to run business. That's possibility that that just a trade here isn't about what the street is. It's about okay. Can we fill a void? Because we're going to trade something else is Dwight Powell very a guy that some people might have some interest in. I think so. And so now, I'm looking at names like Aaron Gordon that's expensive though. I'm looking at Michael bridges. He's very young mckell, Michelle bridges. There are a couple of other names that I'm like, okay? Could he still a role for de'andre Jordan for Dwight Powell? For some of these other guys rather than just these young other players that are smaller guys. Okay. So I will tell you there. There are some people who believe is it about this season this trade or is it about the future of the team. I think that you guys brought it up perfectly. It's it's about the future and who meshes with Luca the bass because I mean, this is evidence that like as if you weren't sure that the decision has been made, right? Like there will be no competition for who. The Batman is the Batman is decided. So it's who can slide up next our next to him the best you brought a mckell bridges Miquel bridges is a player that I love that. I know Nikkan epic loved that kid can do a little bit of everything. And plus he had success at the college level. I like that kid very very much. Now, you brought up Aaron Gordon. It's interesting. I've heard. Some thought that maybe they feel like he's plateaued in Orlando. Whether or not he's plateaued as a player or twenty seven million dollars, though is that we're yeah. Because I think they're really, well, we gotta give the money to something. But like, they're the wonder isn't he's only twenty three, but the wonder is has he plateau because that's as good as he gets as a player, or is that as good as he gets in the Orlando system because you know, Aaron Gordon Jonathan Isaac. These are both guys that maybe you can set up in the front court, and maybe run alongside if you wanted to run them alongside de'andre Jordan, or if you decided that you were going to run a little smaller and run them alongside like Harrison Barnes or something like that. And still say, hey, we still gotta figure some things out at the center position. Like a lot of teams do, but I kind of wonder if that's a viable option. The money thing would be a little odd with Aaron Gordon big figure that works out really easily just add Wes Matthews to the deal and just about even okay? Oh, all right. Okay. All right. So that's us support. That's unique little dream that. I might be okay. With there too. I don't know. What else, you know, maybe hopefully, you can get some gas considerations back there. And maybe swing a second round. I don't know. The other thing is here. The other names Devon Booker. Okay. The twenty four twenty five point a game seven assists a game guy. This is it's Luca on the other side of the court. Okay. So like Devon Booker is bad ass. And I couldn't say, yes. Enough quickly enough. And you know, how much I love Dennis Smith junior. But he's on the books for like three million this year. Well, sure, if he was on the book for thirty million. That's fine. He's twenty two years old. He's already established himself as one of the absolute best offensive players in the league. And he can still trip in seven assists a game. Yes. Please ju- still think that Phoenix wants to make that move because I think they view Devon Booker as their Luca, which then of course, begs the question about what about the Andre eight got in some arguments already have those two don't jive. And so the thought is there more explosive version of like, maybe they don't fit on the court more. Explicit version of Dennis Smith junior and Luca where it seems like they get along fine. But maybe they just don't jive on the basketball court. I just don't think that Phoenix would say let's trade away are easily best player. And then I just don't think that they would trade away the guy that they just pick number one. But then again, I wouldn't have guessed that they would fire their GM like instantaneously into the season. So who the hell, I know? He's just the number nine pick. In seventeen. But that's what you're doing with data. Smith to is your trading away, a guy that you said you were going to build around. Sure. No, you're right. And but I'm with you, man. I that's sold on throw in a first round pick to get Booker as well. Here's what's going to happen Colby. Okay. We're gonna get we're gonna end up with Timothy MAs gov and DJ Augustine. That's how life where to God. I thirty one and thirty two years old or just going to add more depth. Steve -able reason to do. Yes. Most get Bomba or Lucia vich or forty. I mean, he could probably pick up. Evan -fornia as part of the deal if you wanted so Bomba Bomba. Okay. You're that song about him. I did mogambo the name of the song. I understand. That's lebombo. I understand. It's not that much different to trade. Somebody who got drafted in this year's draft as opposed to last year's draft. Because you're still, you know, ejecting on a player pretty quickly mobile that has not been particularly good this year..

"I thought in that win over Utah that Jonathan Isaac was on the floor almost the entire fourth quarter. I don't know if he had a physical attempt or rebound assist. But he was out there defending switching everything, and he's got the size and the link to switch be very very versatile defender. This is what they're trying to get mogambo to learn to do Mugabe's, you know, sometimes I talk about prospects you draft profile over skill set. And elite players have both will mobile bay is all profile right now, he's all profound of skill set. And I mean, as we know has been disappointing. This office productivity has been almost nothing should be good shooter a good office rebounder. But I will say what Steve Clifford has done is he's gotten organized defense. There are much more versatile team on the defensive end their switching more. They've got bigs that are getting out and defending on the perimeter. And they're helping recover defense is just much sharper. The execution is much more on point in I credit all that Steve Clifford west to ceiling for this team right now, you know, they're battling for a playoff spot. Are they going to be able to hang in there? I don't know. They don't know if they've gotta get good winds not just with been wins. If they're gonna do that. But right now, they're hovering around five hundred other keeping selves in the mix think they actually could be a better office team as they go along if they could smooth things out just a little bit. But so far I'm glad that they're they're a team that's middling in the Eastern Conference while they're trying to groom these young players like Isaac baba even window and probably gonna get another good pick. They've got all their picks going forward. So I like teams that compete try when games as an try to bring that one young player along per year at the same time too. So good things for them in a much more enjoyable to watch than they were a year ago. Yeah. What Aaron ward? So I remember when we talked about him in the season preview that I talked about the fact that he's the guy if you watch them. Like a practice that doing station decision drills. You'd be like oh God. He's good. And everything you know, and they kind of individual phases. Working on his ball handling station working on shooting in another station working on his ability to move or were clan horizontally on defense, but not able to kind of combine those things shooting the ball a lot better from the three point line to important development for him. But he still looks like a guy me should be able to tack a defender with duro penetration and gets the ram the effective. He just can't do it. Then went back to look at the staff to make sure that comes stats back it up. He's cores tree points a game on dries on five point two drives a game. We you know, he's not Janas late. You know, he's not quite that physical specimen. But he's close, you know, he jump through the roof. He's fast straight line runner. But. You know, I still a little bit underwhelmed with his ability to kind of use his athletic fizzles, physical skills to make an impact though, he's Motte or policies shooter Clifford has playing better. On defense alerts goodness first year that four year extension that he got twenty million dollars..

"Is that experiment? And it's a hell of an experiment at twenty million is already going sideways. They've taken him out of the starting lineup and they're bringing them off the bench just in the preseason. Now I am expecting Zach LeVine to have a better year. This year he'd better. He just signed a seventy something million dollar contract, but. And I don't need to go any further on this. I just I don't think there are thirty one team. Disagree with you there that circled as well. Get on my board to actually would have been one of my next two picks like, all right, Brian, your up again, going to go with another Eastern Conference team under Orlando under thirty one. I don't. I feel a little squishy about this one because again, somebody east has to win games. They just don't have much talent on their roster. Show the ball. Well. I mean, just this is another team that has been in the lottery for decade. Well, almost a decade and they just despite all those picks, they just don't have much talent. I know that they're, I, Jonathan Isaac who missed a whole bunch of last year and they ice a little bit because they were tanking. They just gave Aaron Gordon a huge contract. I certainly understand his upside. I just I just don't like the roster. I the reason I'm I'm squishy on this is Steve Clifford. Routinely got the most out of his Charlotte, rosters, and you know he could be a guy that like Brad Stevens, you take your expected wins and you you, you flick it one or two or three because he's going to do it. And you know, they're going to be just much better coach, but I just think most lights they're going to go out there. They're going to be outclass talent wise. I can't disagree. I love their Atlanticism. They have all the high flyers at the rim, right? It'll bunch of height athleticism at the rim. They're gonna be fun to watch. Just have no outside shooting. I'm excited about mogambo. I just don't think he helps them win games in his first year. Right. They real quick Brian. I wanna ask you question before you jump to your next. What happened? I magic pretty closely anyways, and I think a lot of cool young talent. I thought this signing for pretty cheap relative market of Jonathan Simmons from San Antonio was really strong in nothing. He hasn't really shown anything sense was he just kind of more of a, you know, a spur was at a Spurs thing. Then he just not as good as just not fitting with the group. I, it would be better for him. You know much there was kinda. There's sort of a stigma this happening in the league, sort of, you know what happens to ex patriots. What happens to experts, you know? And I was actually at a dinner last night with a couple of assistant general managers who are scouting were at the game I was at and they, this is the kind of things that assistant general managers scrimmage over over a meal thing that into a a semi heated argument over the Kyle Anderson contract that Memphis gave, which was a four year. I think it was a four year, like two million dollar deal, something like that. And that's, and that's the most situation where former spur, you know, I actually thought, if you know if you look at the value of Simmons, I thought it was a good signing at the time as well. But he did under wellm. He did underwhelms so I'm not ready to run away from yet. But again, I don't. There are some exciting potential players on this team, but I just don't know if I'm a team and I looked down at the layup line at the other side. I'm not. My knees are knocking, and I think Johnson Simmons fits into that. Just imagine that dinner table just totally. The good image. We are gambling podcast. We have to mention Geraldo vulgarity and I think that gig for him just the NBA doing that is fascinating. I'm gonna take over thirty five and a half. I actually think that's good for I, I would assume a couple of wins just giving the advancement of analytics in what he brings in also, you mentioned the coaches squeezing everything. I'm a big Rick Carlisle fan. I think dodge is ready to make the transition now..

"And I think one they have been pushing the ball through his hands a lot. Even watching them play in their first preseason game or two. They run some office through him. See like he has the vision to hit. A nice pass to hit a teammate, cutting to the basket, backdoor cross court, whatever that is, but just can't quite get the pass where news to be in on time. So you know what I would like to see him play with his some more ball, domino player, who really commands attention of the defense and can create for him. And there can be certainly stretches or processions where gar Gordon Gordon can be more ball dominant player. I just think he's not a clean efficient skilled player to be the ball dominant player. And that doesn't mean he can't be a great player. It doesn't mean he can't be an all star, but I just don't think he's a clean efficient skilled in a player to be bald. I'm gonna player and they really don't have another ball dominant player on this roster. And I think that's the kind of situation I would look for now, Orlando clearly. So. Far hasn't had the vision because last year drafting Jonathan Isaac, John, that is. Has a lot of side, but again, not of all nominal player this year. The draft pick from Obama. I love mobile, but I think he has just to be an incredible NBA player, but he's not a ball dominant player. So I think the where Landau eventually solves this the point guard position because the point guard position, it's just been a black hole for them the the entire tenure of Gordon's career. And this year they really haven't addressed that so they can ever get to the point where they bring in a really solid point guard that can really run the offense can handle the ball in. Aaron. Gordon can spend time working off the ball and uses lettuces them to get shots off and to run the floor and to work as a cutter, or when they rotate the ball weakside. Then he has more space to work in to me, that's the ultimate solution. But to me so far, they don't have the type of player that. They really need to pair with the Gordon. Although I liked the Jonathan Isaac pick last year, love the mobile take this year. They still haven't really addressed the right type of player to pair Gorn with offense only to maximize what he's able to in. For example, playing Gordon Isaac at the four and five with Baba's playing thought, always gonna work out. So yeah, fit is important Biondo last year. I don't know. I think everybody knows. He's not really all that big. He's a good athlete for his eyes and stuff. And then we always talk about traditional centers fit traditional center with some skill would be great for Gordon's development. And we'll see how much develop because see from baba baba could very well become person. Thankfully, for the Bajic, Aaron Gordon still young enough, not like their own. These completely separate timelines, right? Like you get on a trajectory where they could be two two players and a core of three or four players that a team has to hit to really start trying to ascend in the league that could happen is it could be that I have more questions than you do about him. I liked the draft pick, but I have more. I don't know that he could be one of the best three players on a team down the road, but I'm always, I always try to stay very minded to being like, well, he does something a lot more than I expected. But when they kind of talk about. A little bit more about my view and my valuation Gordon but won't let you share what you had before I jump into that. Yeah, I'm an say, I mean, so far the preseason, they've kind of slid Gordon back to the three Jonathan Isaac started with in the first game, and we're seeing more pairings on the floor where Gordon's kind of back towards the wing and Orlando does have some depth at the five spot. I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing. As long as you have that four that can provide some floor spacing, the office of end wish Jonathan Isaac is expected to do, and they're hoping mogambo becomes that kind of player talking about Obama as a four, a raisin..
"jonathan isaac" Discussed on The HoopsHype Podcast With Alex Kennedy
"So it's interesting just like with Jonathan Isaac where I said, all the physical tools, the athletic says, oh, the maturity, it's all there. The same thing with Aaron Gordon, his teammate, they they're very similar and and you have mobile now in the mix as well. It's interesting because all these guys with their front court that you know are kind of fit the same profile, the different players, but they're all super mature super led, and it's going to be really. Interesting to see how that front court shakes out or who ends up staying long term. 'cause some of these guys may not be on the Magic's roster, you know a few years from now we could see them traded. We could see some guys, you know, leave in free agency. You never really know what's going to happen when you have that many guys in the front front court, and there's concerns about fit. But I, I was just surprised to see air Gordon v, I think typically he doesn't get respect nationally, but clearly, you know, you've studied his game a lot. You see his strength as we says. So I like the placement. I think magic fans with them. They just wanna see him, but come, you know, this big superstar that they want him to, you know, be Blake Griffin, or, you know, be a superstar right now and you know it's takes time, so they need to be patient. But that's kind of where the magic fan angle comes around. But I definitely like here. I think if he plays to his potential next year. Having him as the number five power forward with, you know, guys like Millsaps Porzingis injured. It does make sense. Yeah, absolutely. And you were talking about things at that front core hasn't common? Well, another thing is that none of them can believe are really knocked on shooter's just yet, and the most important thing is the crazy wingspan. John Hammond of general manager about from comes, came from the bucks. He's always been a guy obsessed with the wingspan. Those three guys freakishly athletic. I am a little concerned about the fact that I guess are two most important pieces are told that they must be as both are best served playing the power forward spot. I hope that they don't just stick Aaron Gordon or Jonathan Isaac into the starting small Ford road next to the other two guys..

"Jonathan isaac really did a nice job and sort of frustrating and limiting jaren jackson junior i am captivated by mogambo like i and you were making fun of me saying you're not really gonna watch magic gabes like he's not really going to be a reason to tune in andrew he's been a reason to watch like the guy is just so long but is it second year player kind of you know under maybe not underwhelming but under the radar rookie year yep he plays with intelligence activity length you know solid positioning on defense where you can kind of see like hey best case scenario this guy could be an all defensive level player like that could be in his future now does he get into the right market and play on the right team and like get enough attention for it you know maybe not but man this guy is just around the ball lot he's really frustrating he'd be a nightmare to have to play against i is he doesn't do it in a you know a mean way it's not like he's met a world peace out there you know he's not that ship he but it's a little bit of like the michael kidd grill gilchrist factor where he's just he just goes and goes and goes and goes and he wears you down he takes advantage of your mistakes he's very opportunistic he's great at using his body and unfortunately things kind of fall apart when he gets on offense where going i control my body what shah it might take i don't know what i'm doing but i think from orlando standpoint when you're trying to find reasons to wash next year like i think you're to jonathan is going to be a pretty intriguing guy to wa yeah well kevin asked has anyone been paying attention to jonathan isaac and the answer is me i always paying attention to jonathan isaac i was super high on him in last year's draft and and i've heard great things from vegas you know like midway through the year i think i came out and said if we were redrafting this class i would go lowery marketed number one jason tatum number two jonathan isaac number three which seemed crazy for a lot of reasons but i do think that is it project to be really valuable and really versatile and the offense is never gonna be like dominant in a conventional sense but i think he can be really effective on that end that thing that i worry about with orlando is that a lot of jonathan isaacs projected value in my eyes was as a like super versatile small ball five who could kind of do everything and just harass people that way and putting him at the four like i don't know how how effective he's going to be in that role if they're building the future around moba mba but look moba sounds awesome too so maybe it's a good problem to have no matter how many different moves they make signing biondo trading beyond like what do we do with all these different things they still have a lot of positional issues and they just paid gordon you know his best positions probably four or five i would not be trying to play him at the three all they're young guys basically you could make arguments in cases they should be five i guess i see isaac a little bit more as a four because he's able to cover ground defensively and i think he kind of slots in their naturally yeah but that's where gordon should be too so you know you're kind of in this situation where you have a bunch of guys playing the same position and still no point guard to kind of set them up or or you know get them going so i think it's going to be frustrating at times watching the magic they're probably gonna be in a lot of ugly low scoring games next season is going to be a lot of growing pains as baba gets his body and his mind you know ready for the nba level i think it's going to be kind of a gradual rookie season for him you're not gonna be able to throw him out there and really expect big things in extended minutes so that might help alleviate some of these issues at least early on but again these guys do have a level of upside that.
