"I told you so listener. I told you this would happen when she came back from the achilles house. Like i love elissa thomas but having that adding that tool to the toolbox now is a little late in the game because it is so hard to not. Just say hey. At your she is the best perimeter crater on this team by lachey the curve on this team so they need her they do neither. But it's just that that chemistry the rhythm the timing and just the fact that this has not played all year like you can't just put her in there and look look look we weren't. We didn't have a podcast. The talk about her game to be incredible. She was incredible a nagging to close thirty plus thirty in a close game. That's crazy was awesome. But the reason she was awesome to me was because she wasn't. They weren't like forcing the ball down to her. She gets a steal. she'd go she she'd you know. Hang out the dunker spot and then come in for her for revenge. Right right hang out. You know she'd hang on space and you let her she such a great player. Such a smart player understands the game so well that you just kinda let her go and if you let her go she'll figure out something. Good stu lab in this game is kurt miller. Just i think he got starry-eyed that's know. Get it right. That's the player who has taken you to heights. That you did not think was possible. This franchiser like the g the player. Who's been there and done that for you. And you have to rely on that. But with this team i think it was just a mistake. Chip thirty six point. Four uses percentage in this game third-highest any player in the playoffs. It's just it's a bit too much of her. I think she played well but they want to hurt late in the game and just think like a i understand the choices are probably gone. Wanna bonner although i criticize you know having db in the action in game one when they lost to i think kurt he had sison make it turned out poorly but it was just a bit too much. I'm going to tell us a time. I think she she led the team in shots that has to be john jonquil. Jones's spot jonquil jones has legit shots. Imagine you're gonna win gates. But that's the other one all season jungle jones leading them on offense and so i think perhaps putting putting them in a pick and roll would've been better pick a pop. You know try just just make chicago wrecking with jones in that play They did and i understand. I understand why. Didn't i understand that the coverages for jonquil jones were smoldering in the edges. That were coming out. If you brought candace parker into the action were devastated with the offense could cause a turnover that would have lost you the game but really put it away so i get it but it was It just at just think kirk. Got a little tunnel visioned Any anyone do that as a coach. It's tough not to do because you see a player. You're like i'd die for this player. I wanna give them the ball when accounts for me. Because i trust them but you also have to have to get that the wide in your perspective will be here to play playoffs. So i you know. I think it'll be okay. I think elissa we find. I think next game. Her shots will come down or she'll just have one of those osa. Thomas games will be sitting here talking about bridges right and my question to you. I know you like to ask me the question that i have a question view just regarding Having comes back. So i mean i've been reading some comments on social media etcetera etcetera about how jonquil jones has taken a step back because eliza thomas has picked up her production. Do you see that as being an issue for connecticut. Because will jones named mvp because of her aggressive play because of her personality and she can't sit back and just delegate offensive touches or offense of opportunities to elicit thomas because now she's been inserted back into the lineup. But is that something that you see. As being a factor in how jonquil jones usage time has changed in the playoffs. For sure for sure. No doubt about it. I mean look at it. Incorporating player like elissa thomas regardless of jonquil jones having a great season or having terrible season is going to change what period just because of how much on how much of the ball is thomas needs and a lot of shots were taking what the defense gave but yeah. I think it's what it's allowed connecticut to do. And i think this is not a great thing is they. don't have to force it. Download the john. They'll have to force it to brianna. Joe and those. Two players have tough assignments they Frog defense is great so it is tough to just say. Hey okay throw it in there and get us a bucket and they had to force that during the regular season i think now in the playoffs because is back they can say hey well. The path of least resistance is through a list of thomas. Let's go through that and that and that's not a bad thing it hey this could have worked out right. This could have worked out very differently. And we're talking about anchored genus. Thomas is is is a superstar mazing. Just one of the best every seat in this league right like a couple shots go your way. And we're ended. They outcomes completely different. But it definitely has changed with paul jones is doing. I think it just changed the mindset of disconnect team saying that we don't necessarily need to force it junk all in reality. you should force ball ajami bob. John paul's should be your action. Make them send two or three people to her. That's and that's and we'll go. We'll talk about so. Phoenix is doing sees it foul dominant bringing grinders. And they're just like okay. We're gonna go to her anyways. She'll figure it out john. We'll figure it out if you like her. I think brandon jones figure out a little bit more. That's the lamb or concerned about. But john paul if you just get her the ball and try to force it to her she will figure out something good to do with it. But what do you think has been that the your. What's your opinion on that. I you know i. It's pretty interesting to me because you know you just said brianna. Jones needs to be assertive as well. Anna she didn't shoot one shot. She didn't attempt any shots in the first quarter of game three beyond a job so she needs to be more in tune to get those touches but credits. Chicago's defense as you. Were also talking about but you have to pursue the touches. I mean you can complain about not getting the ball or you know we as as viewers can say while she needs touches but they're not gonna come to her. She's got manufacture those by her off ball movement. You know setting screens and not just china receive screens to get the ball. I mean that could be you up as well. But she's got to be more active and getting those touches. You also gotten a little bit foul trouble while had come out off the floor. But i think we jonquil jones. I think for her. You know she can't shrink because now allows thomas is back. She needs to stay aggressive. Amaechi is the. Mvp said over and over today she said the game will be one a loss inside and initially in that game she took to heart and started attacking has really phenomenal. Moves in there counteractions. A with her footwork and so forth. But when you look at what list. Thomas was able to do in game to come off the bench and get a double double as a coach. You're kinda salivating like well that worked last date. Let's see if it will work again. So i get current miller's choice to go to her just like you.

"Rachel. It's wnba semifinals day. It is time to get intense. It's it's a very complicated time but before we get to the semi finals coming out. We got games tonight a great. We got everything let's talk. Let's talk about these awards. Let's start off with the biggest award. John jonquil jones takes home. The mvp award of any surprise there by you know absolutely not one hundred percent had vote. Connecticut has been the best team. I think when you talk about how they finish the say this raw through the award winner. So let's be connecticut swapped everything I just don't know that there's an argument for anyone else above jones. i mean obviously. A wilson has had a phenomenal year for had a phenomenal year. Brought stewart. If if stu we haven't gotten hurt you know an and she's still playing in seattle still playing and you know that that they didn't really teeter off as much as they did towards the end of the year maybe it's different story But now it's it's it's very clearly. Johnson she one hundred percent vote yelich. It wasn't even a question in my mind. I think the more interesting aspect about this is where the votes go in in the way the voting goes in the w i don't know about the nba or other professional sports league the way the voting goes is essentially given a list of five players and you vote them and if you say you put jonquil in the first place vote. That's ten points Second-place vote is one is sorry seven points third is five forced. Three v is one so you can basically rank the players And that's how the scoring system goes jonquil jones Had a total of four hundred eighty seven. Total points in forty eight first place votes only one second place votes. Somebody put her number two. Which of love to know who did that. Then the only other person who got a first place vote was britney griner. I'm not upset about that in the order Just based off of total points based on the total point breakdown that adjusts explained. It goes john goal jones with like well over two hundred points. More than britney griner then st louis then sylvia fowles. Then tina charles. And here's the shocker. Then asia wilson skyler diggins comes in after his wilson. A rica goumba. Wally comes in in third last ahead of candace parker in ahead of jones. I'm confused as all hell is. How a reggae got on this list. not even a rude way honestly like say the same candace parker with the amount choose injured. Wherever like i'm cool with the top people right but there's some interesting ones. Somebody gave a reiki gumbo. Wally a third place vote which means they had hers third best player in the league. This year that's interesting. I assume that's a homer Any shockers for you of people who were included in this or should have been higher than the list in your mind. It's absolutely fascinating like some of these some of these breakdowns in numbers. I mean i ain't again. I mean it's all it's all dependent on someone's opinion on what an mvp is so. I understand dallas. Made it to the playoffs understand. Rica's a phenomenal offensive player. I just don't know to me. It was very clearly i think. Asia wilson is not getting enough credit that she deserves meal with with how dominant las vegas has been this year. She's played every single game. We all know with lists camping out where the ball's going to go. And i think she's been incredibly consistent now. I think it's fair to say it's not her Mvp season but like to have some of these players above at that. How how is asia. Willison the leading player for the number two team in the league place below tina charles. Here's my thing. And we've talked about this rachel. Our both voters humble brag whatever Very no art. Once we should say this for rachel. And i and i'll speak for rachel on rachel tells me that she disagrees We are both extremely honored to be voters in this and we take extremely seriously. We spent a lot of time looking at advance. Stats simple stats. You know i- tests things like that. Because in our opinion these votes these awards shape the legacy of not only the league but these players right when they try and get into the hall of fame. It's going to be okay. Were the mvp where they first team all defense second team all defense first team all these awards directly impact the legacy of not only this player but the league. And so i. I honestly don't even know if there's a more important role for the media. When it comes to a longevity impact on the league i agree i agree and i think that there's a big responsibility they're You and i go back and forth. We we debate a lot like a lot of the research there. I think it has to be taken seriously but it is interesting to see the breakdown of the numbers in the way some people view things i just. If we're talking about a top three it's gotta be. You can't just forget about brennan stewart. And the in the year that she had. We can't Undermined asia wilson and how consistent in steady she's been with the one of the most dominant teams in the league. Now it's almost like sounds like we just look at the ice is just a collective unit and not how are the is good as they are and i think britney griner deserves to be in the conversation especially with the dominant play of the second half it really is a whole entire year Tina charles obviously mvp offensive. Numbers can't deny that there was very depleted washington roster much more than just. How many points are we putting out. Howdy areas are you Affecting game on both ends of the court. I think there's some defensive question marks there When you look team or just team success like. I'm not sitting here saying simone. Augusta should have been the mvp her rookie year because she scored the so many port. Like you know what i mean. It's it's gotta be when i look at. Mvp it's the entire body of work. How your team has impacted when you're on the core and when you're off the.

"For because impair But i think there's a lot of good arguments for a bunch of players. So do you wanna get into you. Get into with at the top i yeah. Let's dive right in. Usually my headset diverts the pool zip-lining but let's just go right Taste so it's you know. I know see. That's probably why did we're we're in a mvp of the league We do have some. Ap awards have come out. They haven't been all of the awards quite yet. They're gonna be releasing them throughout the playoffs but for this one which is the equivalent of the. Mvp is the player of the year. Right uncle jones. Want it so with that knowledge. Who is your pick for. Mvp this season jonquil jones. Ami i mean i guess everyone was on the same page. I mean there are a lot of different. The votes going on all season long for the power rankings within the league. But i think when you're looking at what number. One connecticut has done a stretch of wins. They haven't lost the game in overmanned. I think even with the gap in plan or whatever but they have just been terrific and she has just been phenomenal. when it comes to average double double she and sylvia thousand the only two players in the league to average a double double this season and no slight fouls. But then you're also looking at okay. Which team is better. And then there you go and there's your answer any john. Jones has just been unstoppable. A six six nightmare. Mismatch step back leg in the air. Domer- may making three point shooter. Shot blocker rebounder had. She's at three levels score six at. Can we talk about that enough. I see has just been and she took her game to another level this year man. She knows most improved player. Now and be in my mind and apparently the ap voters to agree There's just not a enough superlatives adjectives for jock while jones and when she's been able to accomplish this year and in turn her team has been incredibly successful and they're sitting in the number one seed going into the playoffs so that to me holds weight like you can be on the second or third best team or the twelve best team and have better numbers maybe or comparable numbers but your team has to be successful numb when it comes down to it and for connecticut and john jones. I mean that it just fits. She fits the bill. It's yeah i agree boating chocolate. Well i don't have vote if anybody from the wnba is listening. I don't have a vote. And i'd like once someone give me but here i'm going jungle jones's while Law the same reasons you mentioned. Just think offensively and defensively. She brought so much value to this team And we'll talk about. I want to talk a little more defensive talk about defensive player of the year for just which was able to do offensively that that three levels scoring how how much she changed the team in portraits. He needs the position to win as well. 'cause we we've seen players playing Not sort of impact the rest of the people around them and make them better on both sides of the ball. Jonquil called definitely does that. No i know this award for a long time avert for at least the last few years certainly has been the best player on the team. i just you know. It's hard to argue though that the person who brought the most value to the league To the her team this year was dhakal. Johnston's they often the best deal the league and she is clearly the engine behind all of their success. So you know. I think it's pretty. It's pretty easy choice She separates off early on in held onto that. Lead for most of the year Now i am interested. Who else was on your ballot. Eilly pixel people's on on how many people you have on there but island picked my top three and so might second boat. Those britney griner and my third vote goes to soviet house. Wow yeah. I mean you can't go wrong but i ask had tina charleston in my mix i man but and it's unfortunate that washington didn't make the playoffs. Gabe you know. And i you know i saw you. We saw each other after that game when we were signing off mega mcpeek and she was doing the thanks to the fans. They should production and everything brigade season. I started welling up. You know and people who know me know that. That sometimes happens to me. But i've never done that. Mike right after a broadcast and i think it was the fact that it might cbo. Wasn't there the last two games the fact that Grandma missed the two games prior to that. I mean there's just so much rigmarole and off again on again push pau. We said there are eighteen. Different starting lineups who the mistakes but nevertheless tina charles came to play now. Nevertheless janitor was the scoring champion in the late. But it's just unfortunate. That team didn't materialize as we thought they would. Because of all those injuries. And all the push paul stuff. So i just i just knew that that the mix game everything that they could have but it was just such a heartbreaking moment to know that you now for the first time and chen. No second time in ten tries that Mistakes didn't make the playoffs under my books. So i just think a tina charles but what she was able to do regardless of how team finished. I thought that her performance the season was nominal. I mean it was like career-best and she's been the league eleven twelve years so it's already a legend already alleged. Three time gold medalists. Yes she's looking for the wpa title. Everybody is looking for the wb title but she was really purposeful at impactful for the mystics as they tried to get into the playoffs. Give themselves a chance to have tina. Charles run for but i think with elena delle donald plane two and a half games. That kind of took that away from her with a not decided. I mean decided not to return to the mystics. This season. i think that was also impact on the of injuries. I mean i can't even talk about. I mean i think every player was at some point or not the thing to me. I think tina coming into the final weekend of the year of talking to someone else like she is third on my mvp while she was there for a really long time. But you gotta make the playoffs to be an mvp consideration. You know the league where two thirds of the teams make the playoffs. You gotta be in there. And i think that those last couple of games for her just just it didn't it didn't if that's when i need the mvp to come through and it's not her fault. She did a lot especially in the new york getting like she was receiving so much attention in both those last games. And you know she. She needed some help people around her. When i want to get all into the mix but it's just like do you need to make the playoffs and need the app. Warm really big in those games and it didn't happen so i think that that's why took her off the ballot in favor of fouls Because interesting solo spin I love sylvia..

"The wnba. Is that fair yes. That's absolutely fair. It's time for connecticut's a a championship. This is probably their best opportunity. Boy i cannot say enough about the job. That kurt miller has done with this team when you wash them play. They don't even look like a pro team. They really look like a college team. And i say that with all due respect because this is a team of players that play their role so well. It's hard to pick out the star so the role players in the lineup. Because everyone is just so connected. Their chemistry is great. They play on a string on in the player development. Over time of this group is been where i think. Her miller has really done his best work. When you look at a jasmine thomas who is the point guard of this team. But most people wouldn't have picked her to be a leading point guard the wnba on a team. That's the number one seed or brianna. Jones who is probably going to be the most improved player this season of the wnba becoming a force to be reckoned with to wanna bottles playing at a high level on the defensive in which is a new dynamic of her game and then there's of course jonquil jones who we believe is going to be the mvp of the wnba going from six player of the year both improved player of the year and now probably to mvp of the wnba and just yesterday jones was named the ap wnba player of the year. Which bodes well for her claiming the mvp award as well but.

"Down various rabbit holes of data suddenly stories. Some don't we end each week. Show with one of those dissents. The hot take down rabbit hole of the week this week. I'm taking the rabbit hole. So we are in the midst of a very exciting. Wnba season the playoffs. Start in just over two weeks and six teams have clinched postseason spots with the last two still up for grabs. The connecticut sun led by. Mvp candidate jonquil jones. Sit atop the standings with a game and a half lead over reigning. Mvp asia wilson. And the las vegas aces the surgeon minnesota lynx and faltering seattle storm are three games back and the phoenix mercury and chicago. Sky have also locked up births. The other really exciting thing about this season as we've mentioned before is that it's the league's twenty fifth. That's such a great milestone. when it comes to the sustainability of this sport and i think of women's sports in general i mean sustainability can mean a lot of things of course and you know there are a couple of different proxies. Tv ratings could be one in that case the wnba. Viewership is up over both last year's bubble season and the more normal twenty nineteen when the game right out of the olympic break brought in the largest regular season viewership for the wnba since two thousand twelve that game by the way was between seattle and chicago not a huge rivalry but it was shown on abc. On a sunday afternoon. Turns out that when you make it easier to watch the games more people watch who knew but it's important to celebrate the women who built this league up throughout its history to that end. The league on sunday put out a list of the top twenty five players in its twenty five years. Bliss was voted on by a panel of media members and women's basketball advocates from a list of seventy two initial nominees according to the wnba. The nominees were chosen for their on court performance ability leadership sportsmanship and community service and contributions to team success. The w twenty five.

"Again. That was kurt. Miller after the win on saturday against the la sparks and they want to be better peer accountability. Like those are the things that drive this team. They don't care that they're on a nine game win streak like they don't care about the success that they found because ultimately the goal is to win a championship in day are continuing to remain hungry. And i think that's what to deriving this team. It's what i love about the most you mentioned individuality and that they play with the selflessness of a college team and you nailed it because they do. They have the leadership they have. The you know the players on the team who understand what. It's like to win a championship in january and into wanna bonner but they also have the players who are hungry for that feeling the players you know like jonquil jones who she feels some type of way that her name is leading the mvp conversation yes. They're still conversation surrounding brianna stewart. There's still conversation surrounding asia wilson. The fact that junk will jones hasn't locked that down. She won't say publicly but absolutely it's still something that sits on her mind. This team has a defensive identity that they recognize and they embrace it and you can see it. Every single time may step out on that court regardless of who the opponent is and they're gonna continue with that mindset and you're going to continue to play hungry. Clint to continue to hold each other accountable. So when you talk about this team reminding of a college team. That's what it is. It's that hunger in. Its that drive. Every team enters the the the college basketball season wanting to be in the field of sixty four and they continue that hunger. In order to get there well connecticut. It's no different. They've seen the wnba finals in. They didn't quite make it happen. They were in the semi-finals last season in the bubble and didn't quite make it happen against las vegas. They weren't able to progress this year. They've got the right pieces. they've got the right mentality. They're ready to do what is necessary in order to get to the next level and i believe that hunger is. What's going to take them there. So here's the thing. There are some players that are starting to fall a little bit outside of that. Mvp conversation for various reasons riot. Like tina charles is injured. How much longer the regular season. She gonna miss john. Paul jones witness sometime to the euro basket. And i think that was where some momentum lost around her name in this on asia. Wilson is starting to play her best basketball at the right time. It's hard with vegas just like it used to be hard with minnesota because they have so many good players sometimes two separate right I think liz can beige now. Having cogan we send our prayers to her will open the door for asia wilson to strengthen her name in the conversation if she can carry vegas through the end of the season favorable position seattle's decline as recent is probably not rate for rian stewart As far as her name in that regard And then you know. Phoenix is another team. Much like vegas that because they have such strong contenders in multiple positions. I think britney greiner is definitely the main stands out to me for them. But the waste outdated. David smith is playing you know. Sometimes those boats can be split for various teams. But i think it's clear for the connecticut sign who their mvp is due audubon. Had a gray season. you know. there's been. I mean that teams leadership and you've mentioned this. I mean brianna january which i wish people stop calling her breathing in it is it is it is brianna the my i cannot take it. She's been in the league. What twelve years now. I'm probably exaggerated. Riyadh january is one of the best leaders you could ever ask for on a team. The most selfless on both ends of the floor but a particular on the decent events. You really spent the tone. Then you have jazz. Thomas who's established herself as rate leaders in the league like the leadership on this team is so solid the championship pedigree with doina bonner in with brianna january bringing their experiences is important then brianna jones. Who is next on my list. brianna jones is the eastern conference player of the week. Averaging eighteen points ten two assists like the most improved. Conversation is really about to be over. It is over.

I'm going to be honest. I was a little bit concerned for the seattle storm coming into the season. No alicia clark. No natasha howard. No sammy whitcomb. Those are big pieces when you look when you're looking to make a playoff run. I don't know that there are enough to and we're kind of seeing missing york.

But even if they weren't i still don't know if the leadership and If they are enough to take over a team allah a diana tracy allah even what we're seeing with jonquil jones although i'm hoping there's another level to her being able to manage and take over games not like an. At elissa thomas not. you're not losing that from seattle. Because they didn't need to play that game right. Natasha howard didn't need to do that. You have student should seattle. Be concerned it depends. They're gonna make the playoffs or they're gonna win a championship. they're going to have to fight for it and players are going to have to step up. That's what i have to say about that. Your one through eight connecticut. Las vegas seattle minnesota phoenix than six seven. Eight is chicago dallas and new york barely holding on washington right on their tails at ten and sixteen. La ten and seventeen indiana six in nineteen as are the atlanta dream. So it's only one through five right now that have clinched. We don't have official seating but connecticut. Las vegas seattle minnesota in phoenix. All have clinched a playoff spot.

"Half the horrible in the second half It's just as simple as that. That's why the importance of having a player like hisashi clouds. Step up you're talking about in the second half last game or just two games ago was so important but we saw that fall off fall of minnesota accent just came up their foul But i mean you look at just the collapsed in the second now obviously or quarter little bit. Different story Gun connecticut sun score. Eleven washington mystics. Twenty to release seal off that game but at that went for the most part is pretty much done gables Connecticut sun the number one team. Italy i got some questions for you one. What makes the sun team so scary. We talked about a little bit before we got in this episode. Kind of how. They play playoff style. Basketball all season long is that what makes them so scary to me. It's the bag that they force opponents to slow down their game in played their speed while the first thing i'm gonna do is going to pitch the article that i wrote last week for wind cider. Black hole sun. How connecticut's pace swallows opponents. Because he spoke about re tweets that rat. The sun are last in terms of pace in the league and are significantly below the league average. And they're doing so somewhat of necessity so they came into the season where they came into the season and just a month before they are getting ready to tip off elissa thomas who was. Who is there everything. Who is their their leader. Who is just their point forward. Who's their defensive anchor Goes down an achilles injury overseas and they still signed her to a deal. You still getting max money. But because of that. They can't afford the twelfth roster spot so their route rolling with eleven. but they're actually rolling with ten. Because they're holding eliza. Tom has on the roster so now they're at ted there one injury away from qualifying for hardship every time out So what they're doing is they're leaning on their star wars more than any other team in the w all five of their starters average north of thirty minutes a game and no other team in the wnba has more than three players above that threshold. So a lot of the play is it's intentional. it's kurt miller talks about. It's very very intentional. Because of their personnel that they have to play slower but they're also playing through their front court. You're playing through brianna jones. They're playing through jonquil jones and and even wanna honor is often going to push the pace and then if there's not a free layup there she's going to back out and they'll slow it down so they're not trying to score too much on turnovers and they're actually struggling with turning it over a bit themselves because they're forcing it into the post so much but he has a very very intentional style of play but what that leads to is rebound so they lead the league. They don't lead the league in number of rebounds because they play so slowly but they lead the league in percentages of rebounds grabbed and they limit their opponents. Rebound percentages during this nine game win streak. They outrebounded their opponents. Three twenty two to nineteen so by over one hundred rebounds and in these games. They're averaging thirty five point. Three opponents are averaging twenty four point. Three they're winning the rebound battle by more than eleven rebounds a game. it's just phenomenal. And it just smothering at. It's so difficult if you are an opposing team trying to get up a second shot because you just missed one over the six six point our center. Everything that tom is and you can't chase down rebounding another easier left. I wish i had to just like make a team full dunk wells and the just just see what happens Another question for you. I appreciate stands bringing. I got a lot of questions for the son of the number one team. Right now the standings and they've been there you know not bowl season but a nice chunk where i think it's respectable right. We're not talking about all the happen there. For one day we will be on environment like early on the season. No shave when liberty number one feels like just way The number one but not seeing the same height or here navy or this team that we've seen for the seattle storm recently just as recently as the early on this season. So i'm curious for you as somebody who is wise about the league not just connecticut's on a when you look at this. Why do you think that is in my out of pocket. Or is there something to what i'm saying or has the even as the league of in lee reached a point where you know the sun the store the there's so many teams the storm have dropped down to a normal human status as opposed to godly says that they've been recently. What when you look at those two teams the first thing that the the storm going to have working in their favors the fact that they are the defending champions right and that they've won the head to head matchups. The first game was at was the last game on a four game road trip west coast trip for the connecticut sun and that was the game where kurt miller was suspended. And then the storm had a late comeback at one the game in overtime And then the second time Everyone start what you mean. Brady pools right right. And then the second matchup was the first game. I believe without john coyle jones so it was a huge blow out And it was actually the only loss that the connecticut sun have had at home this season. So i think when you're talking about them as a contender. What's really really scary. Is looking at them as a top two seed or as the top seed that will have home court advantage in the playoffs because it's a huge advantage so thirteen one at home in their eight and five on the road and like i said the only loss came in that head to head. But why do they not get the respect. I mean you have to look at the recent accolades you have to look at like. I said the storm winning the title. But also the fact that they're led by stewart who's got a half dozen titles in the last in the last year it feels like that the yeah the other. The other biggest. Contender is the las vegas aces who made it to the championship. Last season with the defending mvp. In asia wilson so. They've got the accolades there. They've got the narrative there whereas the the sun have been really competitive. These last few seasons in a lot of the the narrative comes from within and has kind of promoted from within. But there is something to that where they're playing this really like blue collar style of physical basketball. That's just a lot less fun to watch than the flashy play of the storm..

"What i always have to say. But i sound buys some like that's right. I didn't pay her to say that she. She added fair to say that. I'm rockin on rockin with them. I like that squad. I'd love to see like taken is out of the equation. Some of those people are on their loved to cease. Ludi get there. I'd love to say some people who who've been put in the time and put in the work that's been a lot unrecognized for a lot of their career so i'm rockin with them to jasmine. Did you want to add anything else about dallas all right so we talked about. Our teams are favorites. Whatever we talked about what. I don't know for saying our facebook favorites to win. I wanna talk a little bit of these top performers this season. Mvp candidate surprise performances. Maybe even from some I mean i would say tina charles per one had some down years and suddenly as back to a top three player in the league right now. Top three score top five score. I don't know where she's out exactly. John jones whose game needs more needs. More love. jonquil needs more spotlight You know they recently were saying how katie admires her game. 'cause way she plays and yeah. Her game is fun to watch. I think she's one we should talk about. I would love to talk about asia wilson because once again we're seeing the mvp running back and she's running back right now. The olympics I'm a passenger torika. She's got something to say. How does this guy know well. It's only a podcast. No i i am on board with those that you named and what i find interesting in this conversation as we kind of you know barely discussed before we recorded. This pot was suggest. It's interesting when you think of mvp candidates right like some of us have our own criteria when we think of what makes an mvp. Is that the person that is most valuable to their team. Specifically is that the person that has stood above and beyond other players in the league league wide you know. Is it a person where you know you even have those qualifications of. If i were to take this player off this team with this team be any good. So everyone has their own general idea of what they determined to be their mvp. And i think the problem that comes with that is that you can probably find a navy. Vp on every team. Because this league is just so good and you can probably pick one person off every team. And i don't mean mvp league why. But that's kind of where i come from when i pick the the is that my criteria of who is performing above and beyond league-wide versus. Who is doing more for their team. Because i just think that there's so many different people who are doing some amazing things for their team. Who look at tina charles and you think if washington is not an eight seed say washington is a four seed or three see. Tina is definitely leading the conversation for. Mvp you we talk about john jones. Who absolutely should be in this conversation. And then that goes to the criteria in my opinion of if you take this person off the team how well they perform where we saw that jonquil missed a few games due to european team obligations and connecticut didn't perform at their best And then you think of you know who has completely changed the game. I think of an iso lamey. When i went from most improved player to absolutely team. And i think when we talk about eric mentioned earlier that the liberty is kind of over achieving. that's one of the reason why because of her performance asia asia asia. Right like. what does she do well. Now outside of you know she's consisted. You can expect the same kind of performance the same kind of play from asia. Gay man gay. It doesn't matter in what realm. She's playing because we're seeing her. Do this in the olympics. Like your rookie. Your dishes your debut and where people talk about pressure and how difficult it is to perform at this level with this meaning is when you asia comes out here dropping twenty this. She comes out here drop in nineteen. She's my god. Do this right so there's just so many different caliber of players that we can place in this. Mvp conversation that i think is difficult even still with us being halfway through the season to decide who is that number one and we haven't even mentioned seattle right in terms of their still we. There's jewel like we haven't even mentioned you know the the amount of just the amount of stellar performances that we've kind of seen across the top teams in this league. And i don't know if we're going to be able to select a true. Mvp until probably near the into the season bet online is the fastest and easiest way to bet on all your sports action. We know that baseball is in full. Swing national hockey league is wrapping up free agency getting ready for training camp. You've got the nfl nba. We just got off of the olympics. you can find. Ufc all kinds of stuff on online..

"To tune into the lockdown on basketball podcast throughout the week as well as friday conversations with howard medal. Okay bradshaw. let's get into the all star game and then it'll about team. Usa so team wnba defeated team usa. In what was a very interesting game. It feels like everything that we talked about. The revenge games the player's going off. It all seemed to actually happen. And you're dallas wing star or we could volley she got 'em. ep. She put up twenty six points. She live tweeted during the game. Which makes me think like. She's some sort of superhuman. But what were your thoughts on her performance. Greenie gotta let you just going to clear out here. I'm not just for a second and let me just a blah the ice. Oh here she was fantastic. Like this is like i know. She'll say that she wasn't really going for the mvp you can tell early. She was like okay. I'm getting my buckets. Adamant i'm gonna get downhill. I'm gonna hit my threes like it was like a classic rica while again. Like i said she was getting downhill and using your incredible like she has some like probably the in my opinion the best handle in the w. But i'm a little biased. And she was hitting just incredible threes especially in that fourth quarter. She hits three especially the and one for the four point play. That was what. I think. I'd text you on point being jonquil jones but have a shot at mvp here. And then ricky hits a three hundred twenty and then she proceeded to have sex more pointed so She was incredible a rica. This is one of the best games. I think i've seen her play just overall and i mean she did it against some of the best players in the world. It wasn't like she just had a random night. A random tuesday night. She went off like she was national television against some of the best players in the world. I was so happy to see me to You've been gunning for the dow swings. Be my second team. Gave a very compelling argument for that. But you speak about john. Paul jones who just couldn't miss in the game or in the three point contest. Obviously outside of allie quickly. But let's talk a little bit about her because they ask kevin durant the other day who some of his favorite basketball players that he said jonquil jones which i thought was very interesting because i think that these players you can actually compare them a little bit they have very similar games and jonquil jones has just been a beast this season like. She's obviously the front runner for mvp When she came out blazing and the three point contest. Oh i am nervous. You know if it wasn't for. Allie quickly just being alley quickly. I think you know sammy could've gotten in there a little bit jones. Let's talk about her. Because i love her energy. Just think she's so like she you can tell that she loves the game. She's so she's such a good big you know. Obviously the three point shot is a great break pregnant part of her game. But what what did you think about her. She has such incredibly again like not just like her. Three point has been fantastic this year and for other scenes. Obviously this year it's been better than ever But said incredible just all around talent like she asked the three point shot. She can score around the rim. I mean she had fourteen. Rebounds had five offensive rebounds still had four assists had the three seals. Two blocks like she had a full wine like. That's why i was like a little concerned that a rica might not win the mvp because she had twenty six points in like. And i think one board wanna says but jungle don's did everything and that's what she's been doing all season. She does everything. She's always been a great defensive player but now she's adding that like consistent three point shot and scoring more consistently. I brought up the kevin. Durant thing like you can see the similarities in their game. Not just that like their lengthier basketball players but like they is such a smooth jumper. They have a high release point that not many people can defend. It's very hard to defend the chemistry jump shot. It's incredibly hard to defend a jonquil. Joe jump shot. So i w the comparisons and i was just i was i was. I hope people got to see like maybe people have watched a lot of connecticut sun games. You've learned more focus on the store and the aces and even the liberty in the east. I think people can watch more liberty games than they do. The connecticut sun but junk will jones is probably for my money. The second best player in the east right now and she could. I mean in this game. She was definitely the best player from these golfers. I mean candace parker at a bit of a not not a bad game but like she wasn't candace parker Jonquil jones was probably the second best player on that In that game probably. I might even argue. She was the best overall player in that game Last week you said that this was going to be the toughest test for team. Usa going into the olympics. What do you think now is really a cause of concern for them or do you think dan Obviously she didn't play factor. Well i i actually tweeted out after the game. I was like all right. This is going to be the only game team. Usa loses and then. They lost australia. And i was like well all right so clearly. I've just i don't know a. They're struggling a little bit more than i expected in a. I mean they're not the only team usa. That's struggling right now. I i have more confident. I actually have more confidence in this women's team to turn around and the men's team. If i'm being honest with you like this team there they wanna get to the olympics. They'll be fine like they have agai- tea with asia. Wilson debris stewart is probably going to be just fine and then you add a diet. Ross you still there you know. Sylvia fowles was. I thought her game in the The all star game was like she looked really really good like she was doing enough. Both ends So i think they'll be just fine then you have the leading score in the wnba right. Now tina charles. Like i think i think this table be okay. I think they just need to couple of game. It's hard when you don't play with each other for so long right. But you're you're not like the other olympic teams that they had the continuity. It will take them a second date going. But they'll yeah. That's that's that's really good point actually like there's one thing that kind of sit out to me. Is that during the all star game team. Wnba was clearly having more fun than team. Say like it seemed like there was such an imbalance in energy. I'm just wondering what's going on there because team. Usa just docked team like the talent on. There is absolutely insane ozzy the talent our team. Wnba was also insane but it just feels like twa was having a lot more fine. I don't know if that's like a pressure thing like they didn't have as much pressure just enjoying the all star game..

"No. She's married to quit. I do i do i dude. I will say this junk will. Jones had maybe the best night of anyone and didn't come away with an mvp or in three point contest trophy but would vote. Took a very very close second in both of those. I really hope. I'm not pulling for anyone in particular for the mvp race but a jonquil jones did so the end of the season and she doesn't have either in mvp award origin. V gebran is gonna be one of the most like unrewarded great seasons. Wnba's yeah in fact. She tina charles. Right now are one into in points and in rebounds in the league. Tina charles is number one in points. Jonquils number two points in rebounds jonquils number. One team is number two. And the difference is that connecticut's won a few more games and so there's that element to it as well but yet overall it's yes like she's having one of the better seasons. She had a fantastic showing at the at the all star. Game really really did well there. That was a lot of fun you know. She just every talked a zimbabwe deservedly. So john quayle had eighteen points and fourteen rebounds and four assists. So she she had more rebounds and assists and more steals than rica but rica had eight more points. And so you know. I think the junk quilt was right. There like easily could have been selected for the mvp and maybe missed by just a fraction. Kinda just like she lost to allie quigley by just a fraction as well so absolutely monster showing from junk jones at the at the all star game. Just huge shoutout to her. I think she's having one of the best showings that were that. Were ever going to see and yeah and just just major major love. I just so all the connecticut sun fans the perked up as i was talking junk will jones just. I'm wearing in connecticut. Sun hat on the stream. There's no disrespect here as logan wanted to stir up last episode. Your no no no. No this is this is not pandering. This is real. This is how it's always been and y'all just need to know that. I just need to know. This is a ceo actually do.

"Thought you know if you're matching on the stars talking about this little two weeks ago Aspect starters for starters like i think it was very but i doubt without levin over the death of teams but obviously the opposite happened yet. That's another point too. I think oftentimes it got so competitive that they actually sorta Let the starters go a little bit. I think oftentimes it's never perfectly even but in all star game you kinda see the teams sort of divvy up the playing time more evenly more than you would in sort of regular game. I got the box score. john coyle played thirty minutes. Sabally played eight. You know a round jones played eleven. Riquet played twenty six. They the starter in other starters. Run for a little bit which sorta of canceled out. Maybe some of that depth advantage that were talking about. Yeah definitely a little different than typical all-star game when everyone really gets out there we did see quite a bit at the starters Talks out of this game. Was i think but i think know. A lot of solid forms from those stars revealed law takes home. Mvp twenty six points. Ten of eighteen shooting really really strong from are a lot of fun to watch her. Of course a couple of those big time shots in the fourth quarter. That's you know known for by thought chocolate. Paul jones was also fantastic. Eighteen points. Fourteen rebounds four assists three resales. You almost three point contest to just nearly that. So i would have been my paper. Ups aimed associated so much. But i think it's a really tight race between me and her. Yeah i know. I would have picked jonquil jones to know you there in connecticut so you might be biased. I'm not though and Yeah i think. I mean it comes down to do value or devalue the all around contribution i mean jonquil jones In eighteen points as well but really the all around contribution Just on on every aspect of the floor including defense which is Area where we said pretty much no one ever contributes in all star game. But she did in. So i i would have picked junk. Will jones too. I think is miami. Vp source splitting hairs. I don't mind rega- getting it. I think we're on the same page on that one exactly Either beside i mean but yeah i mean spends a game from sample jones honestly released alert for what she's been putting up all season long on that regular season big as she doesn't get this live but she's got a very good job for the for the big. Yeah except this time.

"Necessarily even in the usa pool. Well that is a very very significant array of talent to be able to draw from and so she that combination seen there the extra bits of motivation that go into it. It is something. I'm offering intrigued to see how it goes and this is usa basketball team. Let's not forget that even lost to. Sabrina esters oregon sometime back. So it's not as if this is a team that has never ever tasted defeat either inside to sadly was on. That team has an all-star now on the opposition she knows how to get it done and well know many tangents single off on your ideal to say that i- mooting for the all stars only because passed up after three olympic cycles and being on tour a last exhibitions were with team usa. I'm still bitter i. That's all i'm going to say. And i'm just gonna leave it there but i'm really rooting for the all stars. Because i think the drama is so ethically sexy all right. We've got tons of talent everywhere. Let's talk about some midseason awards racial. I'll start with you. who's your mvp right at. It's gotta be between brennan stewart. John john's right. I think for me. I give stewart the edge at this point Not just because of the standings. But i think jonquil is right there. She's right there. I mean i'm telling you it's going to happen at some point whether it's this year next year whatever might be i give the not brand stewart right now simply because of the level that she continues to play out right and in west. Seattle's been deal. I think jonquil jones. She can't miss anymore games. That's that's a key part for me In order to kind of make that push depending on how the second half the season goes. Connecticut ends up finishing never neck and neck. But i give stewart the not. Just because of the standings about you howard. I think it's those two asia wilson. I think it is a three person race at this point. But it's a rachel sport. I think that's exactly ed. John full missing that time. Essentially when jonquil jones left.

"It was the saturday afternoon slate. That saw some of the best games we've had all year. We're going to lead off with the indiana fever. Eating their second one of the season against the league leading connecticut sun Only grap medicare had a good game. Jonquil jones had a good game. Didn't seem to matter. The fever didn't just survive in three quarters through. I was thinking this is a gross game. Both teams shooting under thirty five percent. Exactly this type of like like horrible game. Indiana could like come out on top because it's just ugly right but then the fourth quarter they had the answer. The call i mean connecticut is a well coached more talented team. And they made their pushes in granted. They committed some dumb fouls and they. They still made mistakes but connecticut was there to kind of wake up in the fourth quarter in avoid kind of embarrassing loss in indiana answered the call with made foul shots. They hit a big three. Kelsey mitchell dune it to your mccallum was doing it. Daniel robinson distributing hitting big shots looking like a professional basketball team yard. He no. I will the last episode. I was with steve. We have lamented. That we don't understand what indiana's plan is in the near and long term. But i mean just. They might call that a season if they would have hung close with connecticut whole game especially after losing the previous game to to the by six just two days prior i i think they might have packed it up and instead of the gut it out a really big win i i know. It doesn't affect the season or the standings hardly at all. They're still going to be the last place team but in front of their home. Crowd seemed like is a big deal just to establish like. Hey we're not just gonna get run over by every team the rest of the year like we're still here to put basketball so just wanted you thoughts on backing sorry. I just basically gave all mine. No knows it was great. I actually was really excited. I thought daniel robinson had a phenomenal game. The fever actually shot terribly from behind the arc de rob included for four but other there were two made three pointers with two minutes. Left in the third quarter. Yeah it was. It was all for for the entire game. Yeah it was. It was not a great both teams when exactly four for seventeen from the floor not from the floor excuse me from behind the arc up though had a really solid game that sheen kelsey mitchell really kind of like lead the way and did a lot there in and we're able to kinda shoulder a lot of that a lot of that weight. Tear mccowan coming off the bench and locking down. Twenty seven minutes posing a thirteen point. Twelve rebound outing really solid job. And this is exactly the kind of game that indiana had the opportunity to win and then took advantage of it and did go out there and get the w. just like you said so. It's just good good for indiana. We've like indiana fans. I hope you don't get too sick of us. Just kind of razzing indiana continually because we do because they've earned it but this was we were just so you know every single one of us was cheering for indiana to win this game. And that's because we don't like connecticut's on like we love the connecticut sun. We just wanted indiana to win so bad so we were all cheering cheering along with yearly worried. Like i thought if if they would've lost that game in front of the home fans after being so close in both games against a superior team a team with twelve wins already on season. I thought that might have been it like like. I think that is probably for fans being invested in the rest of the year like post olympics. I don't know how much interest there would have been in that team at all Yeah it's a yeah it was. It was a rough. It was a rough go. But i think that that still getting w there was was big connecticut. Although they lost to indiana probably didn't have the the biggest disappointment. I wouldn't say the biggest disappointment didn't have the the roughest weekend of teams. There's at least one other team though that we are going to get to. that hurts. what if i was kurt miller. I'd be in that locker rooms in another team. Lost the indiana fever of the two thousand twenty seattle storm the wnba champion. So maybe the fever loss middle. The season is kind of the stamp of like. Hey you guys need to get serious if you wanna championship this year. He kept losing the teams. Like here's the thing is if you're gonna lose to a team why not lose if you are going to have a wakeup game. Indiana's a great team to do it too because they're not threatening you at all you know. If for instance instead of indiana they lost to like chicago or minnesota or dallas some of these other teams that are within like two three games of them. All of a sudden that starts to threaten where they're at in the standings significantly more than just a one loss to indiana because indiana gained one game. They're still four and a half games behind the eleventh place sparks. You know it's not like we're there. Okay so yeah. I hope it was a wakeup call. Because connecticut's a phenomenal team. And i still think a contender in this in this league especially with the return of jones. Yeah they really frustrated..

"This is the jonquil podcasts. I'm sitting here with echo. Charles once again seemed to be sitting with you on a fairly regular basis which can be a little bit annoying but it's all good I understand so. I was look everyday for me. I'm thinking through things and one thing. I was thinking about the other day i got got. Some situation started handling some things. And i realized how much i relied and how much i see. Good leaders rely on being balanced on not getting themselves into extreme situations or into attitudes where they're handling things in an extreme manner now. This is obviously nothing new. In fact it's so nothing new. That when i was on tim ferriss podcast. The first time which i had never been interviewed before. And he asked me what makes a good leader. And i said number one humility. I said number to someone that is balanced so a again the past like week. I've been in some scenarios either with clients and seen how they're handling things or myself and having to get through some situations and it's i realized that i'm not getting tripped up with look like a good thing. I'm being complementary to myself same thing. I'm being complimenting some other leaders that i work with. They don't get tripped up. They don't get sucked into problems and that is because they are balanced. So it's fresh in my mind because i I i would say it's not something that i'm haven't been reminding people about enough. That's what i'm feeling. I haven't been reminding people enough about listen. Being balanced.

"The son wants seventy four to sixty seven. Obviously this follows the situation with cam beijing. Kurt miller and actually they they made up at the beginning of the game incurred apologize that matter a whole lot to liz put up twenty eight points on eleven seventeen from the field. It's one of her best games. Really an ss uniform. I think she looked great. And i think she should do them. More often So she played great. But the sun still want so i was wondering what your takeaway from that game was. I mean writing. Away was the liz campus waiting to play that day while wildly apology and everything was simple as it should have been I say they you know had a nice discussion ahead of the game. And you love to see that and again we're talking about brittney griner being something that is inspirational for kids to see but it's also good for kids to see something like that as well. you know. mistakes humid. And that's what it is. So i think for her to go out and go looking for seventeen from the floor now. This season high of those twenty eight. Does he know her career high. Nwea record is fifty three points of couple years ago. She has the ability to score the ball. And i touches this time. I think she wins that game. I believe averaging about thirteen a game and to go off like that and double that plus I thought she was very intentional. She wanted to do offensively against connecticut but on the other side of it for connecticut to come away with the win i thought they played great especially down the stretch Jasmine thomas was was amazing again She's she's really a force to be reckoned with jonquil jones. I mean don't wanna bonner. I mean this is a team right now that is playing not gonna mention one of my loose. Come on and bring on jobs. Get therefore chirps on that team. So yes you know but it was I mean just to have them playing so well. Gabe gave the plane grade. And you know i. I don't know. I really am not. I say base because that's not the right word. I am thrilled to see how well they've together. In the absence of thomas thomason how different that makes them as team right before. They played mystics. my chemo about that. And how different they look at. What makes their team. Different now without eliza thomas because she basically never came off the floor trump's thomas play huge minutes. The goal went through her but he said you know there's a lot more spacing the the ball shared a lot more of with bonner being there now who you know. They didn't have john last year. They have all these different pieces in and we were just talking about how gina that is but the way that they held their pieces in how they're new to another like bonner and jonquil jones are new to one another the fact that they're playing at that level with great chemistry early on his impressive to see and it's fun to watch that style of play and brown jones is playing great in. This is obviously our best year. Statistically in the league and you know she's getting more minutes you got more minutes last year. The bubble begin that. But i think now you know. She's really coming into herself into her game and the expectations of what she should be doing on the floor. And i think that's really bad. Watch as well so. I think that it's you know it's something that remains to be seen whether or not they can sustain that throughout the year. I think there's no question that they will be able to Because chemistry doesn't come and go either.

I don't think a better team in the league again defensive rotations in than the connecticut sun and i think if illicit thomas was here i think the thing we were saying last year was thomas. It breeds all out off of her and now she's not there and you see well okay and now. They have john paul jones. Who's an mvp candidate. Who i think is going to be.
