He did not seem to want to do that as this season went on, but it's not like that's been the defining factor of his whole grain on Philadelphia was in a similar situation with Markel pool to remember. And wasn't sure what to do. You didn't have anybody of evidence there if you were Philadelphia that showed that he was going to break out of it. He never really put anything forward for them. You know, at least with Simmons, you're in a situation where you're looking at a guy and you're saying, he hadn't always been like this, so he's gonna go somewhere else. He's gonna go to wherever Sacramento or somewhere and he'll be fine. But the 6 and a half time making that case to other teams as they're trying to find the right trade deal here.

2021 Lottery NBA Mock Draft
"Tony. And i are going to do our first lottery. Mock draft of the year today. We're going to go back and forth. Selecting picks to put a draft order together. Midseason is really difficult. Especially if you've looked at the standings anytime lately and seen how bunch together so many of these teams are so i went to espn's basketball power index That list teams projected records to the season through a number of statistical factors. I think it's it's probably a better look. At where teams are going to be at the end of the season then necessarily their records right now and then based off of that we put together a draft order that obviously is going to change and obviously will be affected by the nba draft lottery where the top top three teams each have a fourteen percent chance of getting the top pick and so on as you know how the draft lottery works and so doing a mock draft. This time of season tough until really until the draft lotteries over. We don't really know the order but but we have some guesses now based off of where teams what teams have played. And what's going on right now and we're going to do our best to give you a are mock draft For the twenty twenty one season. First one we're just gonna cover the lottery and we're going to let tony how the first pick in the draft and based off of that. Espn bpi has the minnesota timberwolves projected to have the worst record in the league. Which is actually pretty good news for minnesota timberwolves fans because the timber wolves have to trade pick to the golden state warriors if this is pick four thirty and so the only way minnesota keeps this pick is if they fall into top three right now. If the season were tomorrow they'd have about a forty point. Seven percent chance of keeping this year's draft pick a falling the top three in the draft. So this is no guarantee from minnesota that they'll have the number one pick they all said the number one pick last year. Tony you're on the board. Who do you select if you're the timber. Wolves with the number one. Pick in the twenty twenty one nba draft. I select the I will not need three minutes to make the selection I'm selecting k. Cunningham six hundred seventy one hundred twenty point guard out of oklahoma state and so when you When you make your draft selections you do to you draft for two things you draft For value and you draft for need and this is both in pick antibi- you pick for for for the minnesota timberwolves number one. K cunningham is the best player draft You know. I think the gap is actually close Because you know. I think jonathan coachman gain in jalen green. You know both of those guys you look at them and they have some real special tools But that being said you know k. Cunningham is is still am. I is the most shore Most short superstar player in his draft. In and i think that's a compliment to how good distract is going to be especially in the top five But you know cunningham can score at all three levels. No he's sick. He's all seven all twenty. He's he's a natural point guard You know if you're minnesota you're trying to trace the ngelo russell Like as soon as possible In you know you put k. cunningham in the backcourt with anthony edwards who i think both of us can safely say it's better than we thought he would And i think that. That's obviously a backward for the future for the minnesota timberwolves in a really nice triumvirate with karl anthony towns so Definitely you know we all rights won't always talk about. We need some some of these number. One picks the go out east but you get the number one pick in another kind of generational prospect that comes to the western conference. I'm totaling till the agreement with you. Tony i think look. I don't think. I think there's five guys that can make a claim to the number one pick in this draft and so it's not like cunningham is a lock here but because of that i would put all of these players in the same tier and then when you look at what minnesota actually needs on their basketball team. Right now i think cunningham is just the right fit for this team as well and i i see him as a really nice compliment to karl anthony towns and to ant man right now and i think that this is this will be a huge boon for minnesota. If they get this pick and you know look everybody in minnesota has got gotta be crossing their fingers at this point Like you said if they fall out of the top three golden state gets this pick. And i think golden state already one that andrew wiggins dangelo russell trade as it is but if they end up getting you know the fourth or fifth pick in the draft does as as well. It's going to be an absolute massacre on that trade.
Wolves fire Saunders, hire Finch as new coach
"We've got a head coaching change in the nba. The timber wolves have fired head coach. Saunders but i. I had a game to play brian. Sanders was coaching against the guy. He replaced tom sibito of the new york knicks. Having a great season there is game. Went down to the wire. Karl anthony towns had shot in the post to try and take the lead with thirty seconds left over his former teammate. Taj gibson but it rimmed out on a rim in madison square garden. Where the ball. Just capterra women out on sunday and that was ryan saunders. Final quarter as head. Coach of the minnesota timberwolves took over for his late father. Flip saunders in twenty nineteen thirty four year old had a string of injuries to deal with and played many many close games and the timber wolves already have saunders replacement chris finch who was a raptors assistant coach. This season has been given a multi year deal by the minnesota timberwolves to coach them full time. It's a rare move to pluck an assistant from another team. Mid season to take over job just doesn't happen very often. Usually the team that fires a head coach just moves their assistant over for a while at the very least when the full job search can be done until the full job search can be done in the off season but they had been looking at chris finch for a long time in fact he interviewed in twenty nineteen when ryan saunders was eventually given the job and finch like his good friend raptors head coach. Nick nurse coached abroad for a longtime uk. Germany and belgium then moved to the g. league and then was assistant in the nba for a decade. And he's an offensive specialist who worked with james harden in zion. Now he'll have the chance to work with karl. Anthony towns anthony edwards.

We had a full slate last night. There was a game that wasn't played, okay. See, did not play Houston. Because of covert issues are gonna get to that in just a second because I think it portends some some daunting challenges for the MBA ahead. But we have to start with, uh, Karl Anthony towns and the Minnesota Timberwolves as they took on The Detroit Pistons last night. All right, so there's this game was really ugly. It was It looked like two teams that you know we're still trying to find a way, but that's the man who cares what this What? That about that game. It's It's one of 72. They're still 71 more to go. They're both Either find define find who they are and define what they are not as the season goes on, but this story is more on call Anthony Towns You know so often We've looked at this The Corona virus pandemic and we see it affecting athletes on and mostly it. Zah tagline X Y Z player has tested positive for The Corona virus. He's going to be on you know some reserve list and be gone for a couple of days, and then they'll come back and then everything will be fine. Very rarely have we heard a lot of stories about how it's touched. Some of these athletes, But Karl Anthony towns is a story that kind of the story of this country with over 300,000 deaths so far, we we tend to. I think one lump them all together, and but when we get one pulled out And highlighted and especially when it's a a famous athlete and athlete that we have a lot of respect for. It really hits home and in touches you and in a way because you feel like you're you have a personal relationship with our with our athletes. Karl Anthony towns. Mother tested positive for the coronavirus back in early March, and on April 13th just six months ago or so she passed away. And Karl Anthony towns obviously is a young athlete didn't expect this. She was only 59 years old. No one. No one could expect their mom to pass away that early and just be taken with the snap of a finger as it seemed like it must have been without really getting a chance. Because of the protocols back then you couldn't go visit in the hospital. And it changed call Anthony towns on this game last night. Was a culmination of a lot of things for him. And it was really compelling to hear him talk about this. Remember, we met Karl Anthony towns, right? When he got drafted, he talked about wanting to be a doctor. So you could you knew that His his. His mind was more than just I'm an athlete. It was it was deeper than that. But obviously he is an athlete is a great athlete on basketball means so much to him. He scored 22 points last night at 11 rebounds on only 10 shots, so he's very effective, efficient. He was one of the bright spots for both of these teams last night, in fact, down the stretch, it was like he was Putting something some extra energy into his his need to win this first game of the season. Let's listen to Karl Anthony towns after the game last night. I don't even recognize most of my other games, and the years I played and how I felt those days. If I could be honest job for a second, I mean, I don't really recall are really cared. I don't know what happened from April 13th or because you may see me smiling and stuff, but that Carl died on April 13. He's never coming back. I don't remember that man. I don't know that man. I don't I don't know you. You talking to the physical me, but my soul has been killed off long time ago. So I want to really answer your question. I really do. But I only know how I feel from April. 13 Ball on to say it's been day by day is Early understatement. I think it's more moment by moment. Um I like again. I want to answer your question. But That that man you're talking about from April 13th before? I don't know him. I don't recall any parts of them. That's that's heartbreaking to think about. He's such a young man still and everything that he Puts into his game and who into his persona to his brand to who he is. It seems to have been washed away because of this big tragedy. Maybe it comes back in a year or two or or who knows who knows how long but Right now. It feels like Karl Anthony towns is somewhat of a broken soul on Thank you. I don't I don't know what the emotion is for him, um, of what he said. But I can imagine if I had lost my mom in the middle of my playing career. If I don't know how I could have gone forward. My mom was everything from she is everything I did to me and Call me every week before games and say, play proud. I'm sure it was the same for call Anthony towns and his mom, Jackie, until um you know, basketball just makes you realize the fragility of life when we see it in front of our faces, and we expect these athletes to stand and be Champions and heroes and examples and in and put their wares on the court, but not realizing that sometimes life those you a serious curveball and you don't have an answer for it, and it breaks you. And the mental toll is far greater than anyone can ever see or express. So you know this. This isn't about the Timberwolves in this game last night, it's Maura about think collectively. As we think about Karl Anthony towns and want to send him a blessing because he shared something that not a lot of people are willing to give access to He's says he feels broken, and I hope that that's not forever And I think in time he will find a way to find joy in what he does for a living, and hopefully past that joy onto other people as well. But I hope that I hope that it's not. Um I hope that this isn't lasting for quality in town because he really is a great kid, and he expressed that in a way that makes you feel it makes you really feel for him, especially In his first Christmas holiday.

"By Dillon Brooks from the floor feeds it up for Clark. Up ahead. Merin Merin, Dr slips off the window and jimson with two hands. So here's Here's what we'll go around the horn here and I know No, I have n b a issues. I love the NBA. I'm so excited for the Christmas Day games. If you guys don't care, or if you couldn't care less. Just let me know and we'll tap out. You guys could help me out on Twitter to it. Plank show. Knee jerk reaction or something that you think can be kind of taken is as a fact for the rest of 2020 and 2021. John Moran is about to have a breakout season. Even more so than last year. Now his team might still stink. They lost tonight. But perfect. I'll start with you. Are you on team John Durant to be? Maybe even is As important as in the M V P mix this year. I'm gonna take the lack of response to be a no. Because here's the way I stand with John Moran. I think that he was a guy that we looked at coming out of college that maybe we fell in love with a little bit quickly right and emerged. A kid didn't really know much about it. We hadn't watched him during the season. The only time you released all John Moran was win in the playoffs. Ah! All right. Excuse me in March madness, and he gets to the NBA and he's taken his eyes. He was the draft like Holy smokes, and he has moments dunks, but I saw a guy tonight. Not only was scoring but doing everything they were, plus 10 when he was on the court and plus minus numbers are done. I'm gonna take this one is a fact in 2020 and into 2021. John Moran to me is poised to have a if you could even say a breakout season after being a stand out rookie And hopefully, you know, when we get fans back in the stands making Memphis they must watch attraction Now. I don't know about the rest of this team. They got a couple of really nice players and Anderson Brooks, but I don't know if they're ready to be competing outside of maybe for that a seed right now. One more. One more from the West here real quick Before you go these The Timberwolves are back, baby. Karl Anthony towns had 22 points and 11 rebounds. You know, he had the emotional post game interview, which, by the way, I I think that it makes cat even more of a likable player with everything that he's had to deal with. You see that personal side. You see that human side, you realize that this has been an absolute gut punch for him having to deal with everything and losing his mom and having his family so affected Cove in 19. It's been it's been awful. But they went out tonight. And took care of business. It was. It was a really good basketball game between Minnesota and the Detroit Pistons. So if you're trying to sell me that Minnesota's back, baby, and I don't know what they would be back to what like Kevin Garnett, Aaron, Minnesota, I kind of think that Z little fake right now. That might be a little bit of a knee jerk reaction. That might be both of the timber Wolf fans getting all fired up after win tonight. Because here's the reality of it. Detroit's a bad basketball team. And I don't know. I don't know where things went so terribly wrong from a squad that was consistently competing for playoff spots to be as bad as they are. And you kind of look at their roster. And you think, How are they this bad? Because I mean, it's You still have in what the Pistons have put together names like Blake Griffin. You still have guys that can play. You still have, you know, in And Jeremy Grant. Someone who I think is pretty good player guy that could at least average close to a double double. But yet they're not. They're not in a spot where they're a good basketball team. So I'm gonna take trying to put too much on Minnesota as a knee jerk reaction. Let me shift to the East here because This is one that I was listening last night to Jason Smith and I said, this somewhat tongue in cheek. But I think the more I thought about it, I realized it. I love Jason. It's probably the show on Fox Sports radio outside of bins that I listened to the most. But I don't think there's a human being on this planet that I disagree with more on sports takes than Jason Smith. He said. Keep an eye on Atlanta. And I've always kept an eye on Atlanta because they've got one of my guys. They've got Trey Young. Who has had a really nice start to his career, though everything trey Young ever does will be compared to Luca Dockage because of the Hawks in the Mavericks traded took place, but after tonight With trace going. 37, including this area.

NBA mock draft: Anthony Edwards or LaMelo Ball as top pick?
"Minnesota Timberwolves had these third worst record this season but won the lottery last night and we'll select first overall in the upcoming NDA draft. lamelo ball has been consistently ranked in the top three prospects. This year's draft and is now projected to go number one overall in this warnings latest mock draft. So Shannon showed the wolf take. That's the question. SKIP. They moved heaven and earth to get the annual Russell. They have Kat Karl Anthony towns they have Andrew. Wiggins. Mellow. Foot. Compatible with very creative thing is that shot is on off the dogs like his brother Lonzo. Beating, people out the dribbling what's the unknowns they've only seen him for twelve games. Now, he's relatively nineteen years of age I. Think Turns Nineteen Couple Days Tomorrow Okay, yeah? But if you look at it all the top picks, you look Anthony Edwards, he's a guard top top in the when he was player of the year this year I think he's I think he's a three and then James Wiseman. semple. Put One. Nineteen and ten before he was A. Re declared ineligible Yup. Could Lamelo in the Angelo play together? Bass. The question skill that really that's what it comes down to. It's not about Oh, man, he was good. He can do that Kenny play together because you gave up and you have this guy he on Amax Contract Dry d? Rosana mags contract Anthony towns. contract. So Somebody willing to move is somebody will wars the Melo over that? No more big deal with me. So buddy I I would I would move. But if I if I gotta stay there probably I probably would take. I'm taking him I. Don't know what it is about me and these bonkers.

ESPN radio presented by Progressive insurance all against Join us on the shell Pennzoil Performance line. We mentioned it before, and I'd like to incorporate some calls into this aged eight. Say ESPN. 887293776 people say Well, what do you What do you two get into? We had a I think it's fair to say heated debate during the break because the conversation never stops and we go to break we could like we just continue. We are sports people, and the conversation was this and I thought it got heated and because he's an Eagles fan of that cliff was completely out of line with some of the things he was saying, But my point is this. Best players under 25 years old. I'm going to give you a couple of guys. Bart, you tell me who you would take 12 and three. You ready? All right. I'm gonna give you 10 You go. One go for suspense. Go 321 Like really. Maybe we'll get some drums will really make it big. All right, Donovan Mitchell. John Morant. Trey Young. Brandon Ingram. Devin Booker. Karl Anthony towns. Ben Simmons. Jason Tatum. Luca, Don Zion Williamson. Do you need anything Repeated? Do you want anything at any given to you again? Anywhere along the way, Not think I'm good. I think I'm good. I'd like you to start with three. And for dramatic pause. I'd like you to go to two and then really take your time. Milk it and then give us your top overall. NBA player under 25. Got You OK, so number three? I mean, I think he's dispelling the Kardashian curse. Well, maybe not because he just had knee surgery. But he's a unicorn. If he ever gets a jump shot, any type of jump shot a Jason Kidd type of jumps like Jason couldn't do when he got the lead. I want to take Ben Simmons at number three. Ben Simmons, number three, agreed He cannot shoot the basketball to save himself. But that being said Still, one of the great players in the MBA, continued number three. Benson Number three would be been Simmons. Then I think this guy is a future star. This is tough man. Because bubble book is by doing his thing. But Jason Tatum, I mean, post career urban has found itself. I mean, I think Jason Tatum is going to be a perennial All Star. I think he's the best. Best player on the Boston Celtics team, and I think he is their future. Think he's going to be a definitely a max guy? He's going to be a guy that's going to be in Boston for a long, long time. And number one. You You have to go with the kid from Dallas number one, right? You just mess up the team's matters. I don't want to say hi, does it Why I mess it up? I was saying, I think the obvious choice is this. You could have said no, Dave. I'm not going with Luca, but the floor is yours. But I just don't happen to agree with you because you look at what Luke has been able to do. I mean, he's one of these guys where you know the toughest thing to ever do is we look at the scouting report you say? Hey, this guy's not fast. He doesn't jump really well. He just He just has a feel in a neck for the game. Did you see him yesterday with the past through the legs? I mean, he is so effortless, And what happens is he understands that he's not fast, but he understands pacing. He understands timing. He understands how to take over a game. You talked about what? He has 17 triple doubles. I mean, what are we talking about? This guy's the future star. I think he's the guy that should be getting out of Nike commercials. Maybe not Nike because he doesn't move fast, and it seems like when you have Nike both move, and he needs some, like new balance, because he just stable, you know, I mean, maybe some pro walkers or something like that, because he is just as cool as a cucumber. And I think Luca Dodgers is the biggest are under 21. I think he's gonna have that Hall of Fame resume. And he's going to lead his team because he's able to facilitate and make those around him better. I think he's gonna have a couple championship trophies underneath his bill before it's all said and done. He is really unbelievable. And you look at the two headed monster They put together there in Dallas because crystals forcing us and let's be fair probably wasn't gonna work in New York. He didn't want to be in New York. But then he goes to 1000. He's really kind of transformed his game, but but he and don change under that ownership part which you can't dismiss. I mean that duo Sensational. Now Don t jealous of this. He's going to finish the season as the leader in triple doubles making of the youngest player in N BA history to lead the league outright in triple doubles. It's proof that he's the best player under 25. Proof is brought to you by Pennzoil Pencil. A synthetic materials are made from natural gas gives you unbeatable engine protection. The proof is in the pencil based on sequence for a wear test. Using s a five w 30 Let me go this far. I don't think Bart. It's even up for debate..

March twelfth was pretty much the day that like the theme parks like okay. I think we gotta we gotta shut this shit down. Universal was like yeah. I think we'll open up on April first and then on Tuesday. They're like you know what actually now we're going to at least be close to April Nineteenth. Disneyland it from everything I'm seeing here. Looks like Disneyland and world are still set to reopen on April first and we were like Really like as next week as in a week from today April for what was it Thursday. So I don't know I've a feeling they'll probably pushed back but as of right now a lot of people scratching their heads like come on like. Are you really believing? What the president's saying or are you also so hell bent on generating revenue near Park? They'll put the world at risk. Well they thought they thought the president's claim that we will be back open for business by Easter was incredibly pessimistic. Yeah right 'cause. Easter is a at least a week after April I. I don't know I'm a bad person who used to go to Christian school so I couldn't tell you when Easter is this year Easter twenty twenty quick Google April twelfth so they were like You're off by a couple of weeks and you're gotta get these people back on their rights. Yeah swap and spit look. Let's Talk Karl. Anthony towns trending For a depressing reason his mom is in a medically induced coma. Right now Be From Corona virus. Really hard to watch video of him. Just you know kind of breaking down and telling people to stay the fuck home awful man. That's really there's just so many people who are being affected by this right now. Yeah and it's just you know. We were saying this in the beginning of the outbreak. Like this is. One of those issues are global crises. That does it will touch you no matter where you live no matter what class. You're in it. Can it can touch you and I think yeah. Yeah when you see this especially for somebody you know we think of. We've already seen like oh well. Celebrities are getting access to test and things before this that like even in a situation like this. You're a millionaire basketball player. Your own mother comes down with it as having issue. It's just it's tragic but I think this is why we're starting to see the human toll a bit more. Because I think he was a little more abstract to people when the you know cases where like in the thousands and things like that and the and the deaths were you know and like the tens and now is that's increasing you know it's I think the issue in the severity of it is going to be even more vivid for people who maybe need that level of detail for them to act. Yeah waffle house is trending. Yeah 'cause they got the waffle house index man so the Waffle House Index. Yeah I know about that as as regards hurricanes right or preparation yen though. Like Monitor to So FEMA monitors how many waffle houses are open at any given time in a place. That's either been struck up Hurricane or about to be struck by hurricane to get a sense of basically like the preparedness and like how people are reacting and just how a region is doing because waffle houses if a waffle house can be open it will be open right Yeah but I haven't read anything about how waffle houses fairing in the corona virus quarantine or this. Dan Open would they they have. There are some that are open there some that are closed and did they say according to the Waffle House index an index red situation just because of the amount of closures there are they say like in a index yellow means waffle houses in certain locations. Have like a limited menu because that means no food. Supplies are no power or limited power. Or what have you but this is more like okay. We have places completely closed Trying to do as much as they can but an indication that yet. This is even though the once-mighty waffle house is also having to rethink staying open or not. Yeah Yeah I feel like I even really thought about that. Like 'cause I know McDonalds is like facing some pushback because they're not giving their employees paid sick leave or they. They're giving their employees at corporate stores. Paid sick leave but right chain restaurants like this. That don't have drive throughs like what? What are they planning? I mean take one I think. Yeah yeah that's the that's the most they can do. Yeah and Finally Rhino R. I N. O. I think that's how you pronounce. That is spending the president tweeted. This is really great news so the President. Re tweeted an article that With the headline Mitt Romney test negative for Corona virus and He the president tweeted. This is really great news.

UNC's Lost Season
"Jeff Bordello. I'm a little shook. North Carolina finished the regular season. They lose to do because that's fine we're used to that but they're the lowest seed in the ACC tournament North Carolina. So some how you would view this season for the tar heels. I mean they're arguably the most disappointing team in the country. Jeff Portillo is a college basketball insider for ESPN. And I know we have to take some other factors into account with injuries. And Karl Anthony and things like that but you know this was a preseason top ten team that like you said is going to be the bottom seed in the ACC tournament in the ACC is not goodness here. It's a it's a pretty down league you know. There are Miami. Nbc in Wake Forest Pittsburgh. None of those teams are very good and Carolina is at the bottom of all that and to me. That's shocking you know. This is one of the best of all time blueblood like I said a top ten preseason team and four months later five later. They're the worst team in the ACC. It's one of the bigger stories in college football this season and I think you could really make the case that there are the biggest disappointment in college hoops so let's go back to October. Preseason rankings come out North Carolina's in the top ten. They're sitting at number nine refresh everybody in what the real expectations were coming into this season for this team. I mean they a lot of guys from last year but they did bring in what people expected was an impact recruiting class was led by Karl Anthony Centerpiece of Roy Williams retooling effort. It's chole Anthony. Going the top freshman in the country making his debut tonight from of a raucous crowd here that the dome he was expected by pretty much everyone to be the most productive freshman in the country. That's how he wasn't high school that's where he was on the scene. He was a guy that was going to put up big points. He was gonNA put a big assist numbers. He's going to rebound and he was going to win games. That's just that's just what he was at the high school level and people expected him to to be that same player Carolina and it. Kinda set up perfectly for him because he was able to come in and this was a team that didn't have any real goto guys coming back. So they said hey collapsed. And you're getting the ball from day one and you're gonNA lead us and you know it kind of looked good. You know in the first game of the season. He was terrific. He had thirty four points. Eleven rebounds five assists debut for coal. Anthony lost a lot of stars to the NBA. After last season with the go one superstore Chambal. Whom the feeling was that? You know this team is going to be okay. Even despite the losses and along with him they brought into Grad transfer. Is that you know. We're probably two of the five or seven best. Grad transfer is in the country was Christian Keeling from Charleston southern just NPR's from William and Mary and and that added some experience at its veteran leadership and combined with a couple of other guys are Mondo Baker was a five star recruit garrison brooks was a two year starter download so i. I just think that people thought you combine the newcomers with the guys returning and even though there weren't any stars coming back from last year's team there was enough here to to compete for an ACC title and Roy Williams has done this before where his team is is written off a little bit in the preseason and under rank behind teams like Duke and he finds a way to win and that's just what he does and and I think people expected him to do it again with the guys coming in and coming back well so now you've got a team that has preseason expectations they get into. The season was the first time this season there was the first real sign of concern that the season might not go the way some had hoped. I think it was a couple of things I think one was even when they were winning the game. They won their first five games of the season. But even some of those the Notre Dame win the Alabama win. There were some signs of. Is this team going to be as good as we thought were Williams? I you get the sense. He hasn't loved all aspects of his teams. Play here today. You know he has. He has not name barely beat. Notre Dame eleven point margin was it. It wasn't addictive. How close the season opener was against Notre Dame so I think there was. Okay let's give it time. Let's let Cole Anthony. And the other freshman get acclimated and this team will figure it out but they lose by twenty five at home 'til Ohio state to start December. You know then they lose that. Virginia you know losing effort gene is not not a usually a big concern. This is not a vintage Virginia team and I think most people realize that at that time and then they lose to Wofford. They ended up finishing below five hundred in the southern conference. Terriers come to Chapel Hill and knock off a top twenty five North Carolina squad. And that's when the you know the eyebrow start raising what's going on with his team are they poised to be this massive disappointment and obviously once call. Anthony gets hurt. The wheels fall off from their breaking news. Call Anthony out four to six weeks after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery to repair a partially torn meniscus. Well at that point you know maybe things are a little bit concerning. But they're going to get two. Acc conference play. You said it the ACC not the best conference in the world so they get to the ACC schedule. How's that go form? You look at their schedule and you said okay they can. They can weather the storm three straight home games in. Acc play against Georgia Tech Pit Clemson and they had games against Pittsburgh Virginia Tech Miami even a bad UNC team or even a a mediocre UNC. Team could go six in Owen. Those games it was kind of the the bottom half of the league and they went one and five losing the first five games of that stretch. Seventy nine seventy seven double-overtime Virginia tech knocking off North Carolina. I think that was almost getting the end. When you look back the schedule what would be the one moment that sort of pushed everything over to the point in return honestly I think it was after Columbia comes back a long ways away. Eleven Games without call Anthony but he will play tonight. Yeah the five hundred. Unc team suddenly. Jay has a lot of juice and he'd be Miami. Nc State then call and he comes back for a home game in Boston College and you know. They weren't very good at the time but they tended ten three and six in the ACC and you know the the narrative was kind of okay. If Cole Anthony Comes back the committee will look at them and say you know with call. Anthony this is an NCAA tournament team. He's going to be on the roster in the NCAA tournament they're going to factor that in so I think people started wondering can. Unc string together. Some wins and make a late run and in his first game back. You lose at home to Boston. College straight three other time. He's spoiled return. I think that was the sign that it's not going to happen so that's not. Obviously the only epic moment we all continue to think about from the season tickets back to the first game between North Carolina and Duke. The Duke Game was a game that that could have turned things around at least changed the narrative about Carolina and to lose in that fashion. Another late blown lead. Losing to your biggest rival do comes back not to be Carolina to me. That was that was a really low mon it just because it it could have been really a season changing moment for Carolina and the way it happened it just it kind of sent them even further down into the season

All-Star Bam Adebayo Heats Up Miami
"That was the sound of Miami Heat Center Bam Outta Bio doing what he does best destroying souls the court now in its third year. Outta BIOS had a breakout season. Earning his first all star berth and leading the heat to a surprising start today. Espn Zach Lowe brings us the story of one of the NBA's rising superstars and tells us why not everyone saw this coming. I mean at times. It's Friday February fourteenth this is espn daily presented by ADT. Isak Meena thanks for doing this. Oh my pleasure. I like small third time. That means I'm not blowing it. Debbie's whatever the numbers say. I'm not blowing Zach Lowe is an NBA insider for ESPN. His latest piece is a profile of Miami Heat. All-star Bam Auto Bio Zach. We're coming up on the All Star game and one of the first timers this year is Bam Outta bio the Miami Heat Center. Who's in his third season has really emerged as a star? Why did you decide to write about him? I like to write one or two of these a year and I really top out at two. Because they're they're so time consuming and they take so under a port as you know but I like writing about people it's it's one of the easiest and hardest things to do right. I've come to find the sweet spot to really hit in the NBA for players is like between the fifteenth and fortieth best player in the league. Like the top fifteen guys. You're never you just don't get access to them unless you've known them for years and years and years and anything after thirty five or forty you run into like why am I reading about this guys. He that interesting for casual fans it has to be a player that I like is a player. I don't want to write about someone who's game. I just think is empty calories or whatever like I want to write about someone who I think is really good and maybe under appreciated. That's the kind of sweet spot of guy for me. So why do you like Bama's player? Big Guys who can pass are like my siren song. I I love big guys who can pass and when you watch this guy play defense even more than the defense into speed honestly is the rebounding Joe Harish for through and timed his. Jump Perfectly Blue Ray through the clouds for each verse defensive rebound in the afternoon he gets these rebounds where there's like four people under the rim jostling for position and they all jump and then from somewhere else flies in this gigantic guy with these hands that must be made of. I don't know whatever's the strongest possible material that you can make and the ball goes into this crowd of four guys and then this other guy. Just snatches it away like it's nothing. He makes the kind of place where they're winning. Plays and if they come at the right moment and a game. They're like a Gut Punch to the other team. So Zack you head down to Miami to spend time with Bam is friends and his family to get a sense of who he is. Where does history? Begin? It begins with his father leaving their family when his mother wanted to move to rule North Carolina and out of Newark New Jersey and they lived in a single wide trailer in the middle of nowhere in North Carolina and his mom as a cashier at like a meat. Grocery store kind of thing. Earning about twelve thousand dollars a year after taxes. And then all of a sudden she had a son who was twelve years old and six six and could dunk. What was it like for him? You know growing up in that trailer with his mom and no one else. You know when you're a kid you just don't think it's anything right like you don't think it's it's different or whatever. He had a sense that it was hard for his mom and that her schedule was crazy and that they didn't see each other much because their schedules didn't overlap the right way but he was happy at a lot of friends. You know it was fine but he did say by age thirteen or fourteen. You Begin to realize that this is a hard life that this adult like who you just kind of looked at. Is your mom like every other mom has a job and leaves the House. And all that that it's it's hard for her and that they don't have a lot and that she works really really hard for for what they have and that's what drove him. That's where he says he got his ambition and his anger and his desire to succeed was when he realized. My Mom's life is hard. She's tired a lot and I see that and I want to change that winded it. I become apparent to him and his family that playing basketball might be a viable career for him. Once he started playing organized basketball is not till like twelve thirteen fourteen. He picked things up really fast. And you had good natural instincts and good natural footwork by fourteen fifteen. He's on the map of all the big colleges and by the time he's junior mark godfried is helicoptering in to recruit to NC state in like Landon helicopter the field of their school. What was he like a high school player? A monster. An absolute monster have regular forty twenty games just like he was just huge. These teams in rural North Carolina. Couldn't do anything with six eight dude who could dunk? But he was incredibly unselfish. He loved playing point guard. He loved passing two people and keeping them involved. He didn't want to be the guy. Averaging Forty fifty game and putting up numbers there was a story about a guy on the end of the bench who finally got into game. All Bam did was get offensive rebounds and try to pass it in the week at score so Bam grows up in a trailer with a single mom and discovers. He's freakishly good basketball when it comes time to select a college. He chooses that. I'll take more time to University of Kentucky. How does that go first? So when you win big guys get to Kentucky and this was most famously done with Karl Anthony. Towns cal says this cool you can shoot threes like it's cool you can pass and like run the offense but like we have the Aaron Fox we have Maliki Monk. You don't get to do any of that here. My thing for him get and then. Let's really get you to play the way you're capable. You're going to set screens. You'RE GONNA post up. You'RE GONNA GET REBOUNDS YOU'RE GONNA play defense can do big man stuff because if you go to the NBA. You'RE GONNA have to that stuff well before you get to do the other stuff and so- Bam that's cool like you brought the ball up. You played point guard. Like you're not GonNa get to do that here. He would just say yeah. You know I'm just GonNa do my work like I trust cal. Cal has a record of getting these big guys drafted really hi? I'm working in practice behind. Closed doors on all the fancy stuff. Whatever it takes to win whatever cow says is good for me. I'm going to do and like I'm not going to get frustrated by it. So while he was doing all the big man's stuff and games he was working on his guard skills at practice. Yup in drills with Kenny Pain. Who's an assistant? Kentucky's very close to them. At night he would come back to the and do that. He would shoot jump shots which I. I don't know if you even shot a single three at Kentucky. I haven't checked.

Warriors deal Russell to Wolves, get back Wiggins
"For people that missed it. The warriors and Timber Wolves agreed on trade us in the Ngelo Russell Jacob Evans in Amari spelman to Minnesota for Andrew Wiggins a a top three protected twenty twenty one first round pick and a twenty twenty two second round pick. I like to steal from Minnesota. I think Karl Anthony towns and de Ngelo. They're obviously good friends. And that's big because towns it's been very frustrated recently but again let's get back to what the warriors got back in return. I'm not a big Fan. I'm not a fan of that that contract but I guess when you're the warriors they're already a situation where a lot of their guys are locked up so I understand that for them. It doesn't matter as much for another team they just Trying to add a guy that can help them on both ends of the floor and the contract isn't as big of a deal for them. But I just think with twenty-three-year-old all-star which is what Russell was he. He was an all star last year. I just don't think that's enough to get back in return. I do like that. They got the draft pick again. Talk Re protected. Twenty twenty. One should be a much better draft twenty twenty based on what the experts are all saying so in top. You're protected. I mean this Minnesota team made it could finish between four and ten could end up being lottery picked so I do think that is very valuable. That's my favorite part of the acquisition here for the warriors I just feel like with wiggins. He's been so disappointing. Maybe maybe they feel like they can help him reach us well potential. We know they've done a very good job of developing guys. They have great leader as a strong culture which may really help someone like wiggins. This could be totally wrong around here. I will admit that maybe wiggins goes there and this is exactly what he needed to reach us and become a better player in guys like Steph and clay and dream on push push him. I just feel like how did they wait until the offseason because they couldn't afford to be patient here. There really wasn't a sense of urgency. I would like to see if there were different offers or different teams that kind of came to the table. I just don't think this is the kind of package that you pounce on when you have a great trade ship and again twenty-three-year-old all-star and no roe pressure to make a move now so but I it is newsday what you're saying. Though had Russell and curry not work together you think that Russell's trade value could have diminished. So I see what you're saying. I'm just not a big Fan. I think that's my problem here. Yeah and I think for Minnesota standpoint It's a very interesting gamble. Because of course they want him as a free agent right and it's always nice to be able to sign a young player like that. If you get the right opportunity comes along but they miss out. It's so let's remember that to make this deal happen. They basically had to ship out Jeff Teague for basically nothing it trade Covington to get some assets assets kinda like sweet things up and they have to wind up trading wiggins out. It's actually make this deal happen with golden state so I don't WANNA say Minnesota gutted their assets but they actually you. You know invest in quite a bit to get Russell. Now the upside to doing that is you're gonNA have a very exciting offensive oriented team where you've got your best players are both all three point shooters with Karl Anthony towns and Diangelo Russel and they should fit together. Great in pick and roll it could pop situations right so for a fan base. That's been through a lot here. Typical era the Jimmy Butler you know You know being upset a few years ago in the long losing streak this year. I think there are some genuine hope and optimism with that pairing between those two guys. But I think my concern is that they really have stripped out a lot of their other proven talent around them and I think that both those guys are just minus defenders and that part it makes me nervous right. Because you know if you're trying to picture these guys is like this inside outside duo right well you want at least one of them to be a plus defender. And I don't think that's it's ever GonNa Happen for either one of those guys and so now it creates some roster challenges where you have to go out and target some other perimeter defenders guys who can help cover up for Russell in towns so that you can at at least be you know average on the defensive end. If you WANNA be a winning team so I guess long story short I think they invested an awful lot of assets. Just make this Russell thing happened and I'm not totally extolled. That he's the right guy to pair with towns but big picture. They did the most important thing which is keep Karl Anthony towns happy. He's their franchise guy he's been disgruntled. You you know for for months now because of all this losing and so I think they do get a short term went out of that.

"Brought to you by straight talk wireless, and the number one pick in the NBA draft was signed Williamson, and I just will push back on some of the rhetoric that you and I have heard regarding Zayn Williamson having to be the man. He's gotta be this trade has to work out because I Williamson has to be able to be as good as Anthony Davis. To me. I just think this is a different dynamic emit then some of the other number one picks in the draft. Let's go back to last year, right? Picked by the Phoenix sons the sons have not been good franchise, a more one franchise that does not draw at talking stick. The Andrei is a positive for the team. But, but not to the point where you think. Well, this is the guy for sure is going to have to lead them. It's about team. Save the Marquel folks with the Sixers Ben Simmons Karl Anthony towns, back at twenty fifteen Andrew Wiggins, the twenty fourteen these are solid names. I think that they are in a different situation than Zion Williamson because those other players, I mentioned, including Anthony, Bennett or not indecision. What they can bring that up off, right. I'm from Cleveland you wanna rub Anthony been in my face. It's all good. They David Griffin flipped him. How good David Griffin is flipping them for Kevin love. Yes. David Griffin me. But, but the point is that this to me, this feels different for Zion being part of this pelicans team. Then those others. I just mentioned going back to twenty thirteen. It's I mean, I guess it should be your thinking logically, you know, like, like, we're paid to do right fans are going to think that way, you know, if the, the pelicans are successful, nobody's gonna go manager holiday ruined it, you know, nobody's, nobody's gonna say that. Everybody's gonna look right at Zion, because again, they had a superstar that didn't want to be here, and they celebrated Zion is the number one overall pick, much like a d was in everybody is going to wear their Zion Williamson jerseys. And if they do not find success fans are gonna pointed him. They're not gonna pointed anybody else. So when you're the number one pick, you are the face of the franchise, whether it's fair or not. You're going to be the scapegoat, and you're going to get the love to. That's just kinda how it rolls.

"I don't want to media thing. Read way too much into this. Okay. You might have been a passing comment or whatever. But it seems to me that city that to you the way they did after that championship. It would mean something to play there, wouldn't it? It's a form of reverse shade. Because kyri Irvine understands that there's so many fans that wish she was still in a Cavs uniform yet as players have the option to do he decided to he didn't wanna play there anymore. And when you do that and you end up going to a better team in a better situation. When you go back to your old scenario, they're not going to be happy to see. No. And it's also he didn't just decide this way. Like, Kevin Durant decided not to stay in Oklahoma City. He requested a trade, which is viewed by the fans a little differently. You know, what I mean, he was he said like, I don't wanna play with you. I know so contract for two years, but I really don't wanna be here. And I'll I'll summary submarine this whole franchise right now. Which is why he probably heard some things from the Cleveland fans, which is why he said this, I imagine. But to me is someone who works in the media, if I was a media consultant for Kyrie Irving, I would say, sir. This might be how you feel maybe don't have to be one hundred percent on us about that. The circumstances seem to be handled different because they were different Kevin Durant left as a free agent. Yes. Kyrie Irving left as Bill Simmons father taught us as a pre agent. And so when you look around, and you're basically the best player in k D's case as an MVP to just lost to the Golden State Warriors. And then you bouncing leave is like, okay. These guys aren't good enough when you carry Irvine and a team that drafted you you became an all-star you became drew. You became a terrific performer that did some amazing things LeBron James and won a championship. You will hope that the level of respect that the scenarios were half for each other Cleveland fans and Connery and vice versa would still Trump. Anything about him. Asking too. To be out. So now when you make these comments you make the fans now their response is going to be a lot more angry and a lot more volatile than if you would have just been like a love Cleveland and did a lot for me. It didn't work out late. But hey, I'm looking forward to seeing some of the fans, but lastly, we can't can't get mad at people speak in the microphone to the media about how they actually feel. There's something to be said for the truth is will well he also could load load management thing to sometimes a load management happens. Little selectively. I would be and I'm glad you went there. Kyri already let it be known that he was going to miss some game. You wanna make gentleman's bet that he misses this game. No because he's probably gonna miss his game. See if I could get somebody. Now. So you got to find somebody that is not that up on the news. He's missing this. He made it clear. He's like, I'm missing some games. Well, really go bare quietly very good season for the jazz. And not only that he's had a historic season. You know, why he does this little Allie you and this was his two hundred and put back two hundred and seventy dunk. Okay.

A good poker player is the question we raised yesterday. This is not something you say if you're trying to get and Tonio Brown, but the team today Bill are they trying to develop are they trying to win because if they're trying to develop this really doesn't make a ton of sense at what price again becomes the question because they got a first round pick four Amari Cooper. So then if they give up a first round pick in order to get Antonio Brown is just head up. Swap in this way. Is that something that you would have done otherwise, I don't know because the variable, of course, being that Cooper is younger. I think Hooper's gonna wind up getting better. I think Antonio Brown has probably been as good as we're going to see him not that he's going to be bad down the line. But at the right price. I definitely be down for Tonio Brown. But I would tell them as the Steelers would get you in this with him is that he does do all the football stuff, right? As a matter of how long you can put up with rest. Oh, totally. He is renowned as Gruden says for being a really hard worker. But the other thing about this is Mike Mayock the GM of the raiders he was talking about how he wants guys who love the game. Can't wait to play who do all that cliche stuff and on that level and Tokyo Brown does not seem like a great food. Antonio Brown was just the guy who said, I don't need football. All that stuff. You said is in line with Antonio Brown loves football. And just can't wait to work. That's him. Next quote. I think it's disgusting and embarrassing and casualty should be ashamed of himself.

I mean, the only thing I'll say about this, and yes, three games a week is brutal. I don't think there's any other team to practically plays that all year two of them high pressure on the road, by the way.

The patriots are very are a little lucky to be there. They granted Dave crush chocolate. Ran right down the vote. They didn't do much. Appeared and they got a little bit lucky and the chiefs game team that the Rams beat earlier in the season. A couple of calls go the other way a couple of plays the other way the chiefs got ball in the beginning of the overtime. Chase win that game. The patriots are really not that dominant anymore. I understand that. But guess what they were a fourteen hundred in that game when they needed a big offensive possession late in the fourth quarter. They got it. When it is scoring over time. Brady was his surgical is ever. Do. I agree that this patriots team. Not as good as other patriots Super Bowl teams. Yeah. I would make that argument. But they went on the road to Arrowhead stadium. Neutralized Mahomes for a half when they needed to score late in the fourth quarter. They did it when I needed to score any overtime. They did it. And it's one of those situations where explain to me how you feel good about going up against the greatest coach and the greatest quarterback to ever do it. And Craig correct me if I'm wrong have the patriots in this era. Ever lost back to back Super Bowls. No, they haven't. But. Yeah, I agree. The well coach better code. They're they have better coaching normally, and they they don't make mistakes. But the lands can beat this game. You can't win this game fair and square. They don't need.

"Bus ride up to sack town to take on the upstart kings kings did lose their last time out against the Denver Nuggets. But this is a tough squad warriors played the kings last month, and that was a close ballgame where the kings actually had a lead and then the wires found a way to come back and win that game. But I think we saw the Sacramento Kings. That's a team that's going to be a force to be reckoned with for some time to come in the Western Conference. They're young they're hungry right now they come into today. Nineteen in nineteen that actually lost three in a row, and they're just on the outside of the playoff positioning. The Western Conference. We shall see if they can kind of get things together Marvin Bagley the third has been a little nicked up lately, he's questionable to play tonight. But this is definitely a kings team headed in the right direction, buddy. Heald's been damn good Belika bogdonovich Willie Cauley Stein. The man in the middle, and buddy healed who's really been leading the way. And then of course, Darren FOX me talk about just an elite young point guard in the game. He comes into this one average in eighteen points a game three and a half rebounds, seven and a half. Assists almost two full steals a game. He's incredible. He's only twenty one years old and how about this. You wanna talk about taking a leap from year. One year two free throw shooting for him down a little bit actually from his first year. But how about this three point shooting? Thirty percent last year almost thirty nine percent. This year field goal percentage shot four twelve from the floor last year is up to four seventy two. This year is Darren FOX rookie year. He averaged eleven point six points a game this year, he's up to eighteen as I mentioned. He's getting into line more. He's done a terrific job for king's head coach, Dave Yeager. But as I mentioned, they have been struggling Bailey with Bagley out of the lineup Bagley hasn't played. Of course, it's hurting himself in that warriors game back on December fourteenth game that the warriors won one thirty two one twenty five lawyers defense turned it on down the stretch. Thompson hit a big three with about forty seconds left. Curry hit four free throws down the stretch wears just shut the faucet off and outscored the king seventeen to two in the final three minutes and three seconds of that game. Katie had thirteen points in the fourth quarter. Of course that big three ball from clay, Dave Yeager, even said at the end of the game. It was just the warriors experience that got him. At the end said they struggled to finish them shots and a lot of their switching happen, then they made some plays and we made some mistakes and they made us pay but clearly the kings are headed in the right direction. Although as I mentioned, they have come into this one losers three in a row on they are hoping to get the earned FOX back. No word yet. Whether or not he's gonna play in this game tonight. The Golden State Warriors. I mean questions are being asked. And know what's going on with the dubs? Look that was a nationally televised game the other night and a game. They were intent on winning. Make no mistake about it. They left the door open for a guy. Like James harden, who, you know superstar players make big time plays and say what you want about. James harden? He is on another level right now. Too much. I so ball too much reliance on K D down the stretch. They got a little stagnant. Give the rockets credit. They only had two turnovers in the second half of that game. They didn't even have a turnover for the first nineteen minutes of the second half and hall. James harden did was score forty four points and hit ten three's s the most threes ever by an opponent against the Golden State Warriors the previous record was seven. So he blew that out of the water. And the other thing that was a little concerning for me was clean cappella twelve nineteen from the floor also had twenty one rebounds. I mean, he had a like a Karl Anthony towns stat line Capelle is good. But I mean, give me a break. I will hear a little sound from Monte pool in this Walser here a little sound from Kerry Keating, former Santa Clara Broncos head coach great warriors analyst, I will hear from him. And also grant Napier was on our last night with Mark Willard, and he talks about boogie cousins. And what warriors fans can expect from boogie. Of course, grand Napier longtime voice of the Sacramento Kings. So a guy that knows DeMarcus cousins, very well. Cousins course has been practicing and he's getting closer. But boy, I think to throw too many eggs in the DeMarcus cousins basket that is a risky risky proposition. One of the key stats from last night's game. That allowed Houston to come back was they hit twenty one threes. They were twenty one to fifty four from downtown just a shy of thirty nine percent. Katie was actually asked game about the way the warriors defended the three to.
Jimmy Butler booed by Minnesota Timberwolves fans at opener
"Is making his twenty eighteen home debut tonight. Few days ago you had a message for temple wolves fan boomy and go James. The way I play probably go make me smile more. Please come on with Bob. Do you understand fans booing Butler tonight? I would. And I think it's one of those emotionally complicated dynamics in that arena tonight because mom and dad are fighting and mom. In this case, Karl Anthony towns. Mom is the one that you know has said that she loves you but dead. Those want to be around, but you kind of respect him more in this hypothetical scenario.

I don't understand. Okay. All right. So what I understand if they booed him. Yes, on the general idea that fans especially fans in places. Rive personally would not want to live do not like it when people say they want to leave this place, right? They tend to take a little more personally if os too. So maybe that's what it is. All the other hand. I don't feel like if you're fan of the timber wolves that you can't look at Jimmy Butler and not saying you're right about most of this stuff. Right? Like I, if you're tired of Karl towns being a little soft out there, then yeah, Jimmy Butler would be your guy in that way. Like I don't understand a significant level of hostility towards him. You know, your team is a trainwreck. He's just the one that's come out here and said, this team is a train wreck. You want to boost already booth evidence because there's no reason this do to still be on the team writes that is a far better target for your actionable ir getting him out because he does want to be out. And the reason to be mad because he wants to go to New York and Miami and LA, but not in Minnesota with. The good news is that they played a game already. And after the game, Jimmy Butler was using the Royal we. He was saying we and us. He had a pretty good game. Coral towns had a terrible game yet. Eight points fouled out all that as you know, because he is on your fantasy team, but that is good news, at least in the sense that Jimmy isn't going to use Carl's performances. However, poor they may be as leverage. He's not gonna further twist that knife in for the
