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. Even if scouts didn't see all of it to coaches and scouts would come visitor pick their brains about Bam and whether they should draft him. They would all tell them. Just be aware what you're seeing in. Games is not the full extent of what this kid can

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.
NBA Trade Deadline: D’Angelo Russell To The Knicks?
"We're going to go through all the major players teams and things and what they can happen as we were just over forty eight hours away from the trade deadline online. So let's start there Ryan with the New York Knicks. They are actually one of the more interesting teams around the deadline. That got a lot of potential assets that they could be sending out. Marcus Morris has one of those guys. They've got a lot of potential interesting. Big teams could be interesting and also we've heard rumors about their interest in de Ngelo Russell in some sort of trade situation with the Golden State Warriors. So what could you tell us. What's what's the what's the latest on the next and what you're hearing about their plan now that they've no longer have Steve Mills that has their president as we approached the trade deadline? I'd be frustrated about about the de Ngelo Russell rumors if I were Nix fan because keep in mind. The Knicks had a bunch of cap space last year it was widely known that the Brooklyn Nets and other teams. We're going to pursue Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving and that the Ngelo Russell may be acquire -able and When the Knicks did not get a meeting with Kevin Durant or Kyrie Irving they quickly shifted and signed a a bunch of power forwards including Julius randle and Marcus Morris and Bobby Portis and did not go after Daniel Russell despite a big hole at the point guard position? So you know if the Knicks were to trade a bunch of assets for Liangelo. I think that would look pretty bad. You know six or seven months after free agency but You know this is where the Knicks I think they have the worst point guard or depth and talent rotation in the league. I I don't think they have a viable starter right now. It'd be hard to say that Frank Nickel Tina or Dennis Smith junior is they're offered Payton. It is a at least they'll even league average started so I understand why they have some interest in in the Angela Russell again I think they should be looking long term. I think they should could see if they can get the late first round pick from a contender for Marcus Morris. I keep an eye and the clippers Rudy. He made a good point earlier about the clippers ability to trade a first round. Pick the last time in in a in a while So you deal that would work. is Marcus Morris going to La For Mo- heartless and a first something like that. So that's that's where I'd be exploring if I were in the next front office but again what they should do and what they are doing. I think maybe two very different things I heard the next. They're interested in keeping Morris and they may potentially even add to their team like trying to trade for a Daniel Russell which I think would be a mistake but Yeah with what they have going on in the front office right now with with the changes in the short term pressure. I wouldn't be surprised if they make an aggressive move to try to add to their help me out with the NGELO. Russell like feel like they're the team in in the Leveraged Bridge position. But I don't feel that way I feel like there's kind of like a ticking time bomb on when they can get rid of him but it seems like the more they ask for assets. The people are willing to give that up like me understand de Ngelo Russell. Why teams are so interested in getting good question scale? I think because if you're a team that needs a young point guard which is we've discussed. This show is probably the most difficult position to fill in today's NBA. You don't have one then. The NGELO Russell is the best player lawyer who looks like he's available or maybe available either now or in the summer so I think if you're a team you know you're probably kick the tires on a guy like drew holiday. I especially especially if you're a contending team but if you're a team that's trying to build like the Knicks or like the Minnesota Timberwolves and Diangelo Russel is appealing because he's relatively young. He's in his prime him and he's under team control for the next four years One of the questions. I had prior to this. Trait season was whether teams look at. The Angelo is overpaid now because keep in mind Minnesota talking to a deal with the Ngelo Russell and the twenty five million dollar a year range. I ended up getting an average of about thirty from Golden State. So that's not a significant difference Overall but it does impact your team building your your salary cap and potential luxury tax ramifications down the road. So I agree with this gal but I think You know Diangelo. Russell is available now teams know that if they can't get him now that will almost certainly be available over the summer. And if you're a team like Minnesota where the young star and Karl Anthony towns who doesn't want to wait to win games aims and your teams lost eleven or twelve in a row. I think that makes Dangelo Russell. Even more appealing.

"So there is a rumor circling around it was tweeted by NBA Central. That Karl Anthony towns might be unhappy with the with the Minnesota Timberwolves which is understandable as the timber. Wolves had very high expectations nations. This year and they are ten and seventeen the twelfth of the twelfth in the League. kind of a disappointing year. So far the timber wolves and they might be able to turn around highly doubt it there. Anthony towns is that there are only good player. People have been tweeting. Free Cat all over the place place. So yeah and the reason that this rumor Kinda came up was because the the golden old say warriors are starting to look into Karl Anthony towns. They're looking to see if they They could probably jump in there and trade which makes sense as has the warriors are also going through a very down year but it's kind of a down year for a for a pretty good reasons. I mean you don't have steph curry. You don't have Klay Thompson. So they're kind of using this as a rebuild year and they really accumulated their assets and they are. They're they're young. Players are starting to improve and trade options are multiplying so he is so so the warriors they currently had they currently called up from the G.. League Alan Smile which I hope I said that correctly but I'm not sure his nicknamed Smiley highly. Some can call them from that from now on so if you get confused just remember smile. GIC is hard to say Smiley. It's pretty easy to say. So so so smiley you got caught up play in a recent game against the Dallas Mavericks and he had a pretty good showing when you play twenty minutes. He's been dominating in the G. League so it's a good prospect for the warriors. Have and then you have him include. Then you have Damian Lee who's twenty seven years old. He He's been scraped his way from the G. League. He's playing so so he's praying. He's playing pretty good for the warriors so far I mean as good as they can play I suppose then. Of course you have Diangelo Russel so Daniel Russell. There's some prey their trade opportunities there for Dangelo Russell. He's had a pretty solid year and there might be some. There might be some concerns about when Steph curry comes back. We'll de Ngelo Russell takeaway from Steph curry game. So I mean Diangelo Russel will probably probably get traded for some assets and the warriors words like using this as a pretty much rebuild year which is a smart mart. Move because the best opportunity to do it. Because your fans aren't down on you because they kinda understand that steph curry worry Klay Thompson you're out. You're playing with pretty much a G. League team at the moment caps may the cap situations not the best So getting Karl Anthony. Towns would definitely help that out especially they keep dream on green. So you have a potential starting rotation of Steph clay play Draymond and Karl Anthony towns which that's a pretty solid lineup. It's not as good as their lineup. With K B but it kind of adds onto getting the NBA talent that the warriors Kinda used to getting now. So they've been monitoring Karl Anthony towns with Minnesota. So Karl Anthony towns is still under contract. Twenty two twenty three twenty four season so that means they have trade for because he's there there for a little bit longer. Like I said earlier the Wolves Thirteenth Thirteen twelve or thirteenth in the western conference there only two spots ahead of the gap year warriors and like I said the warriors they kind of have a reason to be this bad but D- Timber Wolves do not so the T. wolves they there's a potential that the ngelo Russell could get traded or Russell could go to the wolves as he's good friends with townes it just really depends. I don't really know what a good trade between these teams would be. I don't really know enough about the T.. Wolves to be honest but the warriors the warriors the stories about the warriors rebuild in my opinion of the rebuilds having lights be they have much these. Are these young players that are very that are playing really well. They have these high high ceilings in my opinion. So if Karl Anthony towns there are other teams that could potentially get in here. I apologize there are other teams that could potentially getting here and get the New York Knicks. You got the Boston Celtics. Of course Danny Ainge is always down for a good trade. So I mean they could offer hayward probably not I wouldn't I wouldn't recommend that one but the T. Wolves are in shambles. The warriors are ready to get back up to the upper echelon of the NBA. This down year is definitely really not going to be is definitely not going to be a long term thing. I know a Lotta people want it to be. But Steve Kerr sue good coach. The warriors are just a very well run organization as when people are complaining about the warriors with K. D.. I was sitting here the whole time and I was just like. Why are you complaining? The warriors did did whatever organization is trying to do. They drafted players develop them to be all stars and then they signed another all star to Round out the team. I know people are angry because they already won a championship without Katie and then they signed Katie. But you can't tell me no other franchise wouldn't have done that so you can't heat the warriors for doing pretty much. What is expected of organizations especially good organizations to I do so like I said they drafted Steph clay and dream on? They develop them make them into fantastic players and then they picked up an all-star from they picked up a big free agent from another team. I mean that's what the Lakers did. They picked up Lebron James after they've cultivated olives house talent and then they traded that talent for another all star for. Anthony Davis the one team that I can The heat didn't do that. The Lakers old did that when they had Kobe Bryant and shack most teams do this. This is a hey. This is a pretty basic thing that most organizations do so. I don't understand hate for the warriors there. This is not this is not going to be a long term thing because because it's a very well run organization kind of goes back to the culture thing. I mean cultures. The thing and basketball's well you still have steph curry on the sidelines. All the time. You have Klay Thompson hanging hanging out there. I feel like he every time he gets asked whether or not he wants to go somewhere else. Who just like why would I so draymond dream on dream on? Everyone has different opinions on Draymond so mean he it depends how you feel about dream on but but the bottom line is Karl Anthony towns unhappy with the Minnesota Timberwolves and the warriors warriors looked into it so this is just a rumor possibly nothing could happen out of this. But the T.. Wolves do have a history of losing big stars they They lost Kevin Garnett way back when so I mean there. There's a history of losing these these big stars because they they just don't get anything done some fans of said that he deserves better which is true. T. Wolves just a disappointing season. You can't really get beyond how disappointing the season was there. Were supposed to be at least top six in the League in the in their conference and their thirteenth right. Now they're too like I said they're two spots above the warriors. Who are God awful? Why wouldn't say gobble? There's potential for the warriors but it's not going well for the T.. Wolves so it's Kinda understandable. That Karl Anthony towns has issues. I know he had issues with the organization beforehand. But like I said everything here speculative. It's just something I saw is the big news story of the NBA for the day. So some all of this could have could not be true but we'll find out so in the next segment like mint. I'm GonNa talk about a funny story that happened while funding depending on who you talk to but it was funny story that happened in the NBA. That I would like to talk about and I'll we'll be right after we get back..

"Today's episode. So the Tuesday edition we'll be talking about a little. NFL BE RECAP and this week in the NFL. Dog Mount the playoff matchups. And after that will head into Karl Anthony towns. My WanNA leave Minnesota. So we'll talk about that and other NBA news and then at the end and we'll have another fun segment. You know maybe right So let's let's get right into it. Let's just recap the NFL week. Seventeen the last the last week of the NFL season We'll just go down every single game. We'll talk about all of the all of the matchup said we'll I'll I'll give you the scores. We'll talk about something interesting about each matchup. So let's get right into it. We got the steelers. I of the Ravens This game didn't really mean anything. The steelers steelers needed to win to make the playoffs but the steelers also need the time to lose so the steelers were not in charge of their own destiny at all in this game but it didn't didn't matter. They play the Ravens team without Lamar Jackson without mark. Ingram and lost twenty ten. So the ravens they move onto a franchise is record. Fourteen win season fourteen to have first round by they have home field band out the play offs and the steelers will be sitting at home after a very interesting season season for the steelers. I don't WanNa say it was a disappointing season. Because after Ben Rothlisberger went down it could have been a lot worse. uh-huh they traded for meek offense. Patrick that went really well and the fact that they ended the season out. Eight is pretty impressive. On Mike Tomlin's part on the whole organizations part because it is the steelers they could have easily just tanked and try to get the number one pick or something like that. Aw but they kept fighting. They made a big trade Trade for top ten top ten draft prospect convince convinced Patrick and only lost I think pick nineteen in the first round so you know not too bad for the steelers. They'll definitely bounce back next year Next up we got another game that really matter that much get the bills and the jets. The bills lost to the jets. Thirteen six which is a little concerning. The bills have only been one playoff team this whole year. Now's the titans. And they lost the six thirteen six interesting factoid about the jets. Though they won the last six they won six out of the last eight games. They started the season I wanted. Seven ended seven and nine which is pretty solid turnaround. ICEE because they were not they were visible in the beginning of the year so the fact that they've really turned it around next up. We got the saints versus the Panthers. This gain Gain that the saints had a very slim chance at getting first rabbi but they ended up not getting it. They're actually they're actually going to be. I think second thirteen and three team the play in the wildcard round and they were the first team was the saints so not unfamiliar territory for the New Orleans Saints here. They've eleven games with thirty plus points this season most in the NFL. They won forty two ten. Because the panthers the panthers now turn earn their attention to looking for a new head coach and seeing if Cam Newton can become healthy and bounce back next up we got a game. That definitely doesn't matter adder. The browns Bengals browns. The browns lost thirty three twenty three. So the whole the whole Cleveland Brown one of the most disappointing seasons including Brown's history which is really saying something bengals however tied for tied to their worst record in franchise history with two and fourteen. They could've had it. They lost but they just weren't great enough or worse bad enough something like that next the NFC east battle which everybody loves redskins is three thirteen years. The cowboys cowboys one. Forty seven sixteen cowboys had the chance of making the playoffs win. This game started but a The Eagles put away the giants. which we'll talk about later so? The Eagles clinched in the middle of this game but the cowboys won forty seven sixteen. I mean pretty good showing they end the season an eight. which is I mean? It's all right but I mean Jason Garrett this is ten season or something like that with the cowboys and going a names probably not ideal but we'll see what happens there. I'll talk about in the next segment when I talk about the coaching changes and coaching carousel of the NFL l.. And so we'll we'll talk about later so next time we got the packers alliance packers needed to win this game to clinch a first round by in the NFC and they did did that in a closer than it should have been game They won twenty. Three twenty against the Lions They didn't the packers. Did Not look good at all in in this game but they pulled out the victory to clinch that first round by Next up had in my opinion one of the more one of the Games that I said that we need to keep track of during the years. The Tennessee titans whereas the Houston Texans. Towns need to win to clinch a playoff berth. Get a wildcard spot. And they did that in a not interesting fashion. They won thirty five fourteen. Texas had much to play for because they've already cliffs division so I can see how there's a little bit no motivation or anything like that move on to a gain that didn't matter colts Jaguars I know. The colts had a very off chance and making the playoffs. But it will probably wasn't going to happen so they lost thirty eight twenty garments shoes show shows promise ended his his season as a rookie card. Back then some of the other rookies that are around the league which is surprising because he's around six round pick so interesting fact toward here. Jaguars undefeated home in week. Seventeen Games they're seven and nine all time so maybe one day they'll play a game that matters and week seventeen. Who knows so? Then we move onto the chiefs for charters chiefs chiefs needed to patriots loss and then they needed to win to clinch the first round by. And that's exactly what happened cheese one thirty one. twenty-one insecure that first first round by bears versus Vikings game didn't really matter all that much because the bears couldn't make the playoffs and the Vikings I think already clench but the bears one. twenty-one Nineteen Ms Trubisky at three thousand yards passing yards two straight seasons which is Kinda shocking walking considered. He was not considered a great player throughout this year but he still got three thousand passing yards which might be more of a indication of where the NFL is how offenses are now in the current day NFL Patriots versus Dolphins Patriots needed to win the Clinton Rabbi but they did not lawsuit the dolphins who Kinda turn their season around not really I mean dolphins ended five and eleven which should after the first six or so games. I would not expect that. And I didn't expect them to beat the Patriots definitely so then being the patriots as probably the biggest upset of the week and the Patriots will be playing in the wildcard round for the first time since twenty eleven. So we'll see how that goes move onto eagles for his giants giants as I stated earlier ingles clinch their clothes their ticket to the playoff close to the NFC e the NFC East victory. Thirty four. Seventeen then he got a game that it doesn't Matter Falcons buccaneers twenty. Twenty two falcons. Then you got the raiders. Which I mentioned they? They needed a laundry list of things to happen for them to make the playoffs. But they didn't do do the first thing on that list which was win. And they lost to the broncos fifteen to sixteen cardinals versus Rams Neither team make the playoff round rand one thirty one twenty four and then the big game of big game of the week was the forty niners for the seahawks winner clinches the division and gets home field advantage. I think that was what it was. I think this is the home vange so pretty big game biggest game the week forty nine one. Clinton Division clinched homefield advantage throughout throughout the rest of the playoffs. Got The first round by they won. Twenty six twenty one so in case you need to know your the matchups for this week which I'll go more in depth and and in the next show on Thursday but you have the Texas versus the bills. That's the fourth thirty-five game on Saturday That should be an interesting match up the bills kind of stumbling into this. After losing the jets Patriots Titans Patriots of stumbling into this losing to the dolphins titans kind of have all the momentum going into this this but it is the Patriots so I wouldn't expect too much. I don't have too much confidence in Tennessee because they are going against the New England patriots in the playoffs. So we'll see how that goes then Sunday January fifth the NFC plays you've got saints. Vikings was kind of a rematch of the Minnesota Miracle That should be a good game. I believe then next you have the seahawks versus the eagles. This four forty game Sunday evening. that game like I said we'll go more in depth on it on Thursday but that game doesn't really interest me all that much. I feel like the Eagles Kinda struggled out the whole year and the only reason they're in the playoffs is because because they're in the NFC east so yeah so I mean those are the Games. It's a decent. It's a decent Batra around for a while around games but it could be better but when we get back from the break. We'll be talking about black Monday. Okay and the coaching changes. That have happened so far in the. NFL.
Early National Signing Day 2019: 5-Star Recruits Committed to Each School
"What's harder to evaluate as you looking for guys that are in college? George is the star player on a team. That's not so good like a Washington or even like when James Harden was Arizona State or as you mentioned Paul George at Fresno State or is it like the Devon Booker type WHO's a sixth man at Kentucky. That doesn't get enough minutes or our guy at Duke. That's you know a good player on a winning team but isn't able to be a star because team is so good which is the harder evaluation. I think it's a player playing a limited role because if you're on a bad team usually that means you have to do more so from an evaluation standpoint you can see a guy in more or different situations you know Markelle to Washington. He had to handle the Bali to make plays with the ball. He had the spot up off the ball. He had to try to keep a bad team competitive in PAC twelve games th. They didn't do great at that but I've got to see him and a lot of different environments where we're fortunate to draft Evident Phoenix with the thirteenth pick in the two thousand fifteen draft. I think if you ask this team's picked in the top twelve. Those who missed thought. They missed on him They we just didn't get to see enough of it. We saw the spot up shooting in Games. He came off the bench on a loaded. Kentucky team that I believe. It's thirty eight one that year but we didn't see the rest of his game and that's where the pre draft workouts help when we brought Devon into our gym and Phoenix. And we were able to put them in. You know one on one two on two or three on three and half of them have the ball his hands. We're able to see a make plays we're able to see the field and the vision in addition to the shooting and that's one of the reasons we were thrilled when he was available with the thirteenth. Pick if you're advising. I'm just always kind of fascinated by that. Like why some guys go to smaller schools where they can shine or wide guys. Go to Kentucky Duke if you're advising like a top player and he wants to be a pro and he wants to make his draft stock as high as it as it could be. Would you advise them to go to a smaller school. Or a not as great of a power school where they'd be able to dominate or go to a Kentucky Duke or they're going to be you know. Get Great Coaching and plan a great team. I think it depends on the player although I would encourage any player if we have any high school players who are listening or early prospects look at the program and look at the history of the players who have gone to that program and how they've gone on to do in the NBA. Now actually place like Kentucky has more prospects than say Davidson which. Maybe it's just steph curry. What Kentucky's Guys Hi Stork Lee in the NBA? Have done very well. Not even just the number one picks the Anthony Davis is the Karl Anthony Towns There are Devon Booker. Jamaal Mari Darren Fox guys who drafted a little bit later on in guys even drafted further down the line who've gone very good NBA careers. So I think that culture that environment and having a track record of success. I'm not going to sit it here. Name colleges but there are a lot of other very good college programs win a lot of games at the collegiate level. Who Don't develop very good pros so I would look at that element more than anything else else? Because obviously John Calipari Down Lexington is figured out a program in a system with that he puts his players in position to be successful when they get to the NBA level.

Warriors furious with refs after OT loss to Wolves
"Bruce McGowan the warriors get an L and really kind of their own fault heartbreaking loss for the warriors in Minnesota as they blow a nineteen point second half lead and lose to the timber wolves in overtime one thirty one to one thirty Steph curry led the way with thirty seven in a losing effort. He had an amazing three point shot with point five seconds to go in overtime, but the refs made some very questionable calls one that took away a three point basket from Kevin Durant in another that chart Durant with a foul with half a second ago that led up Karl Anthony towns hitting a free throw that won the game couriers.

"And Andrew Wiggins Karl Anthony towns in either Saroj Gibson that lineups only played thirteen games all year, and that was all before Ryan took over. So he's battled nothing. But injuries and had to throw these makeshift lineups out there that have included guys that weren't even a not even a thought of being on. This roster Reynolds wasn't even a thought on this team up until a month ago. And he's getting he's getting rotation minutes and Cato Bates Diop hadn't played at all. He's now a part of the rotation. So I. I think he's got a lot to deal with. And I think he's done very well in the situation has been thrown into. I think he's doing a good job with an incomplete roster to be honest with you. And and I know it's it's the bias in me, you know, coming out because I've known Ryan since he was a little kid, you know, as a as a basketball community relations intern and doing camps and being around the gym and and being around the Babcock's in the Sanders clan, and all that stuff whatever and putting up shots, and then playing a little one on one Ryan I want the kid to to be able to have the opportunity to coach his team because I feel like he's earned that that opportunity. But we'll see how things play out. I I think that he's earned it. I I hope that he gets the job, and yeah, he I think he's done a good job. I'm with you Alan, he's he's done a really good job with the fact that this team it's an incomplete team right now. Yeah. Yeah. And I think the other thing to balance point about mixing and matching lineups and finding mismatches and trying to exploit those. I think that's where you really see and flip his dad obviously had some of that too from his days in the CBA where you might have a guy for two games. And then you don't have to hold differ roster in there. And so there's just kind of a sense a good field to be able to say. All right. This combination might work. We'll give it a couple of minutes. We'll see how it goes gambling. But just as far as Ryan getting the job. I think certainly, you know, he's done a great job. So far, the one thing that is what what do you do with the front office? You know, there's there's questions surrounding that moving forward. And so I think that will be interesting to see does does one follow the other does one come in front of the other. What is this Aleutian there? The other thing with Ryan to that. He's done a great job of is playing through Karl Anthony towns, you have an absolute unicorn in in Karl Anthony towns he is a dynamic player. He's a rare breed. He's a top one percent. And you're starting to see. What he can do when when you play through him. And we saw it with the shot. Wasn't there tonight? The team rallied when he was down. But he came back stayed in the game. There was a play late, right? Fourth quarter where he thought he got fouled on one end. What did he do? He sprinted back down the floor, and he got a crucial block. I think it was on a grill or Draymond green layup I thought that was a tremendous play by cat. So I think Ryan shifting things through Karl Anthony towns now, he might not have had much of a choice with so few guys available but playing through him and and making him, you're centerpiece.

Jimmy, Butler, Watson into a scrimmage and all hell broke loose with the Minnesota Timberwolves. He was yelling at everybody telling GM, Scott Layden, you can't bleeping win without me. He was yelling at Tom pivotal his head coach the guy that brought him into this whole deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves Jimmy Butler was like, you know, who in training day. Thank god. And then when it was all said and done, by the way, give me a lot of credit. He said that he knew the Rachel Nichols was going to be coming in the interview he already had set up an interview with her after the practice was going to be over. He knew he was going to do any went out there and did it. So when the report was put out by agent rows and rows that Jimmy brother did all this stuff at practice biz. Jimmy brothers sediments. A is true. A lot of it is true. But you gotta think I haven't played basketball in in so long, and I'm so passionate. And I love the game. I don't do it for any other reason except for it to compete and go up against the best to try to prove that I can hang. So all my emotion came out at one time wasn't the right way to do it. No. But I can't control that when I'm out there competing like that's my love of the game. That's raw me me. And my finest me and my periods. That's what you're going to get inside. The lines says he Jimmy brother was telling us, he's Dr Jekyll and Mr High when I'm out there all of a sudden the horns, come out, my fingernails, get long, and I can't control what I'm gonna do out there. He also knows this. They can't win without him. And he knows that they're not the same team without him. But there's new in the Minnesota terminals can let this go and continue with him unless Jimmy Butler has a change of heart and based on that. And what we heard today that ain't happening anytime soon with Jimmy Butler several things here. Freddie one. I had not heard this story. This story. And those quotes and heard the story as Elvin college football playoff committee meetings meetings all day today and obviously Twitter during the breaks. Right people go in and check their phones, and it came up in in all of a sudden in college football playoff committee meetings. We are talking about Jimmy Butler. That's a major league baseball. No. Well, hold on Sean McDonough was there the Red Sox did come up. So. Yeah, there you go. Yeah. The Red Sox covering all bases. Choosing and talking about one sport over the other. But I had not heard any of which you leave aunt sue alone. What do I care? He sounded like an ant. Right. I mean. I was afraid I was not going to have any pudding for dinner. I was going to sit in the bathroom in the dark. If I kept going bring you some apple pie over right, whatever. Anyway, I think my album by days from Atsu clearly over compensate, we have five minutes go by where we talk more about the NFL and baseball to our liking. But she. Well, anyway. Yeah. So yeah, you liar. When it comes to this story in the audio. I had not heard it until we actually hit the air two and a half hours ago. And I am now the biggest Jimmy Butler fan ever because the reports came out from Adrian Watson hausky and most guys when the report is about a star player or any player that their mother rueing their general manager you need me here. You can't bleeping win without me here and Jimmy Butler is going and getting four guys off the end of the bench and schooling Karl Anthony towns in Andrew Wiggins and just dominating them in practice with four guys that. Huey Dewey Louie in whomever. Right. I mean, it's and again folks mother ruining the general manager his own coach and Karl Anthony towns and Andrew Wiggins. I heard the audio until we got here when he said when he was asked by Rachel Nichols. Is the report from Adrian true. His response was true. Yeah. That was my reaction. Went on to detail. Everything that Adrian said most guys would have gone, look, you know, what happens to practice days in practice, and then I get to competitive times. Maybe but no, no, dude. Most most guys would not have said a word. Walkway Nike granting any interview talking anybody this guy, not only owned it. But then expanded on it and said things that weren't in the report, by the way. And he added more credit. He's talking about who's most talented player on this team. It's Karl Anthony towns who's the most God gifted basketball player on this team. Yes. Who is the hardest worker me who's the guy they need him. And he knows it. And he used that leverage today. He Butler he made it a point the let it be known that yet. They're good. But they're not the same team without me being there for any Fitzsimmons on ESPN radio. Eight eight eight seven nine three seven seven six Sean Tampa, which you got my friend. I I want to get on that. Baseball's problem. And the fact that they don't want to market their young guys. I remember when he came out. He was doing all these things and not hitting the cutoffs, man. Everybody was saying, oh, he's doing wrong. And we got all these unspoken rules of baseball. Baseball wanna stay in nineteen twenty baseball is not getting the love that it's supposed to get. You should have been marketing week knows guys when he was hot problem right now. Jimmy Butler, God with everything bullets one hundred percent wrong in this case Butler, gosh, he asked for trade himself. Now, I get it. He wants a hundred and ninety million Minnesota only offer them a hundred million. I kid, but he's not LeBron James. He's not Kevin Durant. He's not going to change the fortune of your franchise when he has to do is show. John God Ed Wiggins and asking me child, how do people sessional that way dance? Or you can't say you love those guys where you storing them on under the bus. And by the way, you gotta age inner right up. So you can continue to sold them under the Bush. You guys talk about Michael Jordan what he did in practice. And Magic Johnson those guys they had the clout should do that. But they didn't go out after they edit and read about it. Guy to help these guys you come better know, who's for as it relates to the league on the other side of that Jimmy Butler tried that last season and Karl Anthony towns was not receptive to it. According to reports Karl Anthony towns, let it be known the top pivotal and Glenn Taylor, the owner coach and owner respectively that he didn't like the way to Jimmy Butler was coming after him and Andrew Wiggins when Jimmy Butler was trying to do that and trying to make that a point to say, this is how you're supposed to be as a professional and Karl Anthony towns was not being receptive to that with all that being said to me, it's not so much of a right or wrong issue to me when it comes to Jimmy Butler what he did practice today. You think he was right? You think he's wrong? I'm good either way. To me. It was not a right or wrong issued Jimmy Butler Jimmy Butler, let it be known that look I have leverage you won't be able to trade me. But do you do you want me being this kind of distraction, even though I have what you want a have what you need. But you don't want me here. You don't want me here fine. But you can't trade me. So what's it going to be? He knows he has the kind of leverage. He knows the top tiptoe knows that he has the kind of leverage because Tom thorough brought him in here. And the guy is to make this straight is the GATT, abroad them, and Tom so right or wrong. Jimmy Butler is already made his piece the most honest guy in this whole deal apparently is Jimmy Butler because I haven't heard the let me use my word, apparently, the only honest guy, and this whole deal is Jimmy Butler because even said, hey, you can be honest with me, but don't give out these reports of the people that you unhappy when I'm right here when you can talk to me because that's exactly what he did today in his own way, being honest and real whether those guys liked it or not so far. He is the. Only honest person in my opinion, ready. I mean, he because he didn't back off of everything that happened in practice confirmed it and then again just expanded on it. And and by the way, this this this and this, but when it comes to Jimmy Butler, I like honesty a lot of people are going to rip him for being honest. I'm not I'm I I applaud the guy for going in and showing it, you know. That team. And the owner I'm gonna take these four dudes on the end of the bench. Right. Their practice squad. Guys. They won't be here. When he when the season begins, and I'm gonna kick the ever loving. You know, what out of your stars? That's how good I am guppy fish. What are you going to do about? It is that I love, you know, why because he knows there's no one in that organization strong enough to stand up to him because they're paying guy. Karl Anthony towns to be the alpha dog everybody knows that the alpha males and a guys Jimmy Butler anyone out there improve the today. And to your point. It is the message was sent pay me. Or move me that simple I'm going to beat this guy every day. What are you gonna do about it? I loved it. Either way Jimmy Butler, let it be known on the big, you know, what in this piece. Wasn't good enough right here. Freddie. Whether it's a Powerball. I'll check it right now. That's it. That's ticket right now for rich million, Jimmy baby. I know you want one ninety I'm good.

"Great player. Karl Anthony towns with them. We had his first. Versus the Karl Anthony towns during crunch time came in GED wherever you almost halfway through the season. So what does that mean? Jimmy Butler at the end of game five minutes left in the game. He doesn't pass the ball to Wiggins or Karl Anthony towns, and even the T wolves owner is starting to get involved in this and he sided with Wiggins and Karl Anthony towns, it's basically a drama between towns camp and Jimmy Butler is camp and the owners starting to flex its muscle because he prefers Karl Anthony towns and he wants to trade Jimmy Butler. He wants them out of there. I'm curious Stephen a Smith yesterday. I turn my TV on it was on ESPN. I blamed my children for that one. But Stephen a Smith yesterday said that the he believes the Rams are not the best team in the league. He believes Kansas City is the best team in the league. We talked about this on Monday. How can that? How can that be? I'm not looking at dive into the head of Stephen a Smith. But how can that be given teams can score so quickly on the chiefs? Well, they do a lot of points. But their offense is so productive other five touchdown a game offense. And they've got the best young player in the National Football League in Mahomes spectacle homes, the young quarterback who in three games of thrones for thirteen touchdowns. So you've got to outscore the chiefs to beat them. I don't know how many people can say the ram because they're defensive line of probably the better team right now. But you don't know delay playing that could very well play in the Super Bowl in the. The chiefs mad they had elite wide receivers. They the best tight end of the game. Travis Kelsey and tyreek hill one of the best wide receivers of the game. So I think the chiefs offense it's hard to believe is better than the Rams offense. Well, I think that too. But I I, you know, I'm not the expert here guys. But I I think the Rams defense is better than the chiefs defense. And you know, that I'm old school defense wins championships. Oh. Right. It does. Yeah. Yeah. And Tiger Woods. Phil Mickelson pairing in the Ryder Cup. Captain Jim Feerick says probably not too likely that that's a good move. I think. Great move. I think these guys are friends now they played a practice round. Phil Mickelson said even though tiger's playing play in two thousand he's still trying to get a stroke aside from playing practice matches. And he can't get it. Everybody you win. Well, we'll see him go up against each other on thanksgiving. That's enough. For me guys. We will talk to you again on Friday.
