"If Memphis is a sloppy as they were against Minnesota, they're going to be done quick. I think they'll clean some of that up. I think they maybe get caught up a little bit. Again, not to I promise someone trying to hammer a point here, but pace is going to be important here. Memphis wants to get up and down. They want it to be a running game. That sounds super dangerous against the warriors because we know what they can do as an offensive team. But if you watch, the warriors that that they use, that's the single biggest difference I think between the dynasty warriors and the warriors now, is that group was perfectly content to run, run, run all day. This group's a little more. We're going to pick you apart with precision in the half court. We're just going to run our stuff and you're going to find it impossible to defend. They'll run, but it's more opportunistically, where Memphis is, let's go. Getting go. I do think Steven Adams kind of reemerges in this series, probably more in the come on loony minutes than anything else, but I think that'll be important because you want to close down the rim. You want to make sure you're taking care of the boards. But I think Memphis needs to run, run, run, try to try to really get these guys going, try to get them tired, they're an older team, try to really get it so their legs are feeling it in the fourth quarter because you're ran them for three full quarters early on. The grizzlies aren't ready yet for this with a healthy warriors team again. Dad, that's the thing I think we're close. We're on the tipping point. And I think this is going to be one when next year and years beyond. We might point back to that 2022 series when the grizzlies lost, but they were there. Man, they were battling. That was the one where that's where you knew. That's the feel I have on this one. Yeah, agreed. I think they're going to take a page from the wolves series too, and they're going to go at John morant a lot force him to defend and then hopefully that will help. He seems like his energy reserves are limitless, but I think they are going to go after John morant quite a bit on that end of the floor. We'll see how that ultimately looks. They're going to drop him to when he drives. To the rim. They're going to be draymond. Not in dirty ways, but they're just physical and they're going to make you pay if you come inside. Does Steven Adams get minutes in this series? I think so. Like I said, I think against kevon Looney, I think, to make sure you take care of the boards, you limit it because you give the warrior second chances. You're done. They're not going to miss shots the second time around. And they're sneaky good on the offensive glass. I just had it up. Let me re pull it, but they're not in a position where you're like, oh, man, this seems the most dominant offensive. Rebounding team I've seen. There were 18th in the league, but they're sneaky how they get them. They get them and they tend to, I bet if I don't have the ability to pull it right now, but if we look, we would say, holy cow, they really make you pay on converting second chance opportunities. Yeah, absolutely. And so that'll be something to watch there..

"And I think that showed, I think that showed in closing out games. I think Memphis trailed by ten or more in the fourth quarter or at least the second half of three games in this series and then they managed to win all three of those games. So that's obviously a huge for them. And I think you saw the walls get a little panicky down the stretch while there was car Anthony towns took about a 35 foot three pointer at one point with about a minute or so to play. That was just, it was just not a good time place for that shot. They make a lot of sense and he missed by a mile. So yeah, I just went in there and got it done, but the most entertaining series of the first round, I think, without a doubt. There was the one blowout game in there, but other than that, it was close games up and down, a lot of action, a lot of crazy stuff happened, and two fun young teams that you kind of look at those two in the pelicans. And if they can handle things right, that's kind of the future of the Western Conference, I think. With those three teams of, hey, just retain your guys, build the right teams around them. And you can see those three teams doing stuff for years to come in the west. Yeah, absolutely. I really enjoyed this series and not because it was the most beautiful basketball because it certainly was not. But it was just, it was close games, these two teams got after each other. It was super competitive, and then of course you had the comeback element, right? In most of these games, the wolves were happy. They're yelling and screaming and fired up and doing all that kind of stuff. And then come fourth quarter that doubts started to creep in. They start missing shots, they tighten up, and then here's the Memphis Grizzlies, grizzlies just kind of stayed within arms like the entire game stayed right there and then overtook them in the fourth quarter and we saw that game script play out a number of times and credit to the grizzlies for being the team that, you know, as a young team themselves, but having the composure and the experience to ultimately get the job done. And I'm excited to see grizzlies warriors. I think that's going to be a really good series. Yeah, I completely agree. We're going to get to that one in a minute, one thing because I just don't want to lose it is. That sense of how the grizzlies just keep coming is going to be huge for them in a series against the warriors because the warriors, they're not the warriors right there. They're not quite that team, but they're not far off that team either where they can kind of hit you with that avalanche. And the next thing you know, you're down 15 in a three minute period and you're like, what happened? But the grizzlies just, they just keep coming, they just keep working. That's going to be big for them in that series..

"Butler was a powder keg behind the scenes. At one point, in the scrimmage sources says, butler, butler turned to GM Scott late and scream. You bleeping need me. You can't win without me. But the left teammates and coaches largely speechless. And I think that towns lost a lot of respect for tibs in that situation because fibo was a guy who preached accountability who preached all business who preached kind of being there for each other and meanwhile he is letting his prized pupil, the guy that he brought in to change everything, blow everything up. And so at that point, watching tips just get run over by Jimmy Butler. I think Karl Anthony towns to look at this and say, you are bringing embarrassment and drama on this organization. I'm out of this. I'm just gonna stay out of it. John, what would you say that we learned about Carl Anthony towns through all of that drama involving him Jimmy Butler and Tom thibodeau? So I think that there was some people in the league who would say, you know, tibs and Jimmy Butler were trying to show Carl Anthony towns how to be tougher. And I think there is something to that at least that was the method behind their madness. But what we learned from towns is that he was never going to be the guy who got in the gutter and was slinging mud at his teammates at the coaching staff at any of that. What towns did instead was distance himself from the situation and say, look, you're not going to draw me into some kind of a public spitting match. I'm not going to be the one who is contributing to the feeding frenzy kind of in the media and in the court of public opinion about the drama behind the scenes. And so I think some people looked at that and said, you know, come on, Carl, get into the fight. Why are you letting other people dictate the narrative about you? Whereas Carl was saying, hey, the way these guys are conducting themselves is unprofessional. It is just an in defiance of everything I know about what a team is supposed to be, and I'm not going to abide by it. Well, John, what are your recent stories you wrote about how we've been seeing some changes in Carl Anthony towns this season, both on and off the court. And some of those changes seem to be connected to the incredible tragedies that he's lived through recently. First, can you just remind us exactly what this dude has gone through and what that experience has been like for him? Yeah, when people kind of question Karl Anthony towns toughness when they call him soft. You know, you really do shake your head if you really pay attention to what he has been through. She was very uncomfortable. Her lungs were getting worse for cough, was getting worse. She was deterring. He lost his mother, Jacqueline Cruz, to COVID-19 at the very kind of outset of when it was just starting to get its grip on the United States and shut down the NBA. He has lost he says at least 6 other loved ones close one's friends, family members, to COVID-19 over the last couple of years. He has been through the ringer emotionally in a way that few of his teammates have during the last two years..

"Soft right now. But could that reputation now be changing? Today, the athletics John Krasinski on how towns has been elevating his game and his outlook on life. And why that could take the Timberwolves to the next level. From wondering in the athletic, I'm under kelto. It's Friday, January 21st, and this is the lead. Doctor Krasinski, welcome back to the lead. It's good to be back on earth. Thanks for having me. So John, as I was prepping for this interview last night, I was looking at timber wolf stats in recent years. And I have to say, I knew this team has been pretty bad for a while, but I didn't realize that they've only made the playoffs once in the past 17 years. And when they did make the playoffs in 2018, they lost in the first round four games to one, which means Minnesota fans have literally seen one playoff win in 17 years. So my question is, with this team now squarely in the playoff picture and miles ahead of where it was last season, is there some buzz forming around them in the twin cities? There is some buzz oners and it's been a very pleasant surprise, I think, for Timberwolves fans who are used to the worst case scenario unfolding. They're used to seeing teams really just kind of come out and find inventive new ways to lose. And to send them home, brokenhearted. This year, I think that they have a much better chemistry than we're used to seeing with these timber wolves and they're on track for a roughly 41 win season. Now, a lot of markets around the league might say, what's the big deal about a 500 season? They've only had two of those in the last 17 years. And so you can pretty much hang a banner for something like that, just with the progress that they've made. All right, well, John, we wanted to pick your brain today about the guy that Timberwolves have been building around ever since they drafted him. Number one overall back in 2015, Karl Anthony towns. I alluded to this already in the intro a bit. But from your perspective, John, what has been the overarching narrative around this guy during his career? Sure, it's been a complicated narrative and there's in terms of he is one of the very best offensive players in the NBA. Towns drills the Trevor talents and he is three triples for towns tonight. He is supremely gifted as a 7 foot three point shooting, put the ball on the floor and get to the basket type of a player who can hurt you in so many ways. The chance for the end one. Such a great a strong move decisive move, but that's been the problem for Karl Anthony towns so far in his career is that all of that talent and all of the statistical production that he has brought forth in 6 plus years in the league has not brought the winds with it. And I think that he has unfairly gotten a lot of the blame for that in terms of being dubbed a stat stuffer and not a winner, but really when you look at it, this is a franchise problem in terms of not surrounding him with enough talent to be competitive in the Western Conference. He has had one player in his 7 years who made the all star team the year prior to joining him and that's Jimmy Butler. And so I do think that he certainly needs to be better in terms of leadership in terms of helping to raise the game of teammates around him. But when you look at the revolving door of general managers of head coaches, and of teammates, he just has not been put in a position to succeed either. Karl Anthony towns spent the first few years of his career playing under Tom thibodeau. And I think it's fair to say that the relationship was a bit rocky. Can you remind us what the main tension was between those two and how that tension played out during their time together? So remember Anders in 2015, Carl and Thompson drafted number one overall by flip Saunders. Before Karl Anthony towns even played in a game in the NBA, flip Saunders died. Just two days after it was announced that he would be missing the upcoming season while battling cancer. Minnesota Timberwolves head coach flip Saunders has passed away. Saunders was also a team president and part owner of the Timberwolves. That really set the organization into this tailspin, where for Carl a few times rookie season, he played under an interim head coach and Sam Mitchell, and then they brought in Tom fibo to basically be the Taskmaster who helped a very young team at the time. Karl Anthony towns, Andrew Wiggins, Zach lavine, tried to expedite that learning curve and that growth process and get them into the playoffs and become a contender in the Western Conference. You hear him talk about defense and the work and he's going to be a guy that's going to make you guys work. I know you're not afraid of work. How do you think that's going to go over in the locker room? I mean, it's going to make us better. Obviously, working hard always makes our own better. So the only thing that sharpens iron is iron, so I think we're on the right path. And you know, from the early stages of the marriage between Carl Anthony towns, Andrew Wiggins, Zach lavine and Tom thibodeaux, it just wasn't clicking. It wasn't ultra combative or anything like that. But in Carl Anthony towns, would he wants in a coach in teammates in an organization is camaraderie is family, a lot of communication. And Tom thibodeau was all business. He just wanted to show up, clock in, go to work and win games and then go home. And so they were just two very, very different personalities with different approaches to being in this league and it just got off to a rocky start and they never really got on the same page. And how did we see that sort of tension between them playing out during their time together? So there was a couple of things that would happen under in terms of watching the marriage kind of disintegrate. And one thing that would happen often is when the Timberwolves would struggle when they would lose a game when the defense wasn't clicking. Carl Anthony towns would often give answers and press conferences about kind of what he did at Kentucky. And so towns would lead heavily on that experience and all the success that he had there and say, what we did at Kentucky was this, and this is how it worked at Kentucky. And that didn't sit well with Tom fibo. There would be veiled sort of comments that he would make in his postgame press conferences about this is in college. The NBA is body on body. It's not, this is in college. It's like when you cut someone's hitting you. You know, that's the, and it's continuous. It's never ending. And until we understand that, you know, that's what separating us right now. And so I think that from that aspect of things a very stubborn and headstrong head coach and a player who really believed that he knew the keys to being successful just were kind of talking past each other often during their time. And then it really fell apart and during the Jimmy Butler trade drama. If you recall, Jimmy Butler requests a trade, just a days before training camp opens in the season, Tom thibodeau declines to honor that request and wants to play through it and hope to convince Jimmy to change his mind and stick around, and in the meantime,.

"But at the same time, that hasn't always been the case. You know, I mean, it seemed to be something that got worse and worse as this season went on. If you go back to previous seasons, he wasn't shooting four shots a game. You know, he was he was comfortable taking those little mid range shots and attacked the basket. 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.

It's right there in the tweet teasing the article. It was discovered that all right, so okay, so I take it back. I take it back in part because I missed this part. So all that was in the initial tweet that I saw. I guess there have been multiple tweets because this is not the tweet that I saw that I just pulled up. The initial tweet that I saw was he had a consensual intimate relationship with a member of the organization. And I'm thinking, my initial instinct is, I mean, like Kevin Costner and Jennifer Garner did that in draft day. They even brought a baby into the world, like who cares? Why is that a story? But all right, so he's married. That's a problem. Obviously, that you can't do. That part, I feel like has not been well publicized. Yeah, but, you know, they've been trying and really, I think with that, they can't really fire somebody necessarily for that. I think rosas would have a lawsuit on his hands.

Jimmy butler can you tell us about the exchange you had with t. Wolves players anthony edwards. And karl anthony towns after that game. Yeah it was entertaining. And that's for sure. Tiffany as people may know. Carla anthony towns and the timber wolves in general have a little bit of a history with jimmy butler. He orchestrated his way out of minnesota. A couple of years ago there was no love. Lost so the timber wolves. Replaying the heat in miami. And it was a kind of renewal of the good tidings. If you might say between. Karl anthony towns jimmy butler kurlansky. Towns are really going at it. And they're gonna call technicals on jimmy. You picked up some of that. Otherwise people listen for themselves until after the game of course we have to ask our towns about that. Where where your emotions running high at that point where we're going through your head is that game came to an end there. It just so happens that he and anthony edwards doing a joint press conference and anthony edwards really kind of stepped in and took the reins mandate grown man. Let me just talking having a regular compensation gagged me me. Y'all come to see us compete. It's no competition. If we not six it was just a really illuminating kind of exchange tiffany because here's a nineteen year old rookie. Who understands that. The veteran right by his side has never been one that wants to engage in the public kind of mudslinging that jimmy butler let many players in the nba enjoy. Doing he always wants to stay above that. And anthony edwards understood. That and said i'm gonna make sure that squash this before it becomes a major thing and he did just that

2021 Lottery NBA Mock Draft

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.

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.

To keep you busy Minnesota Vikings and the Saints tomorrow and then a Saturday off a handful of games and obviously Sunday as well. Some bowl games mixed in there. Also, we're gonna get to some of these bowl games in the five o'clock hour, five o'clock eastern. Two o'clock Pacific hour and some of the issues that we see happening with the college football playoff as well. We have Sean King, former NFL quarterback and assistant coach in college football, one of two lanes. Best is going to join us in our next segment to talk some college football, but Basketball is underway and we saw the opening night two nights ago with the Lakers and the Clippers and the Brooklyn Nets, destroying the Golden State Warriors. 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.

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..

One of the things. That's trending in Disneyland. Which is weird because I thought they were shut down. Yeah well so. Universal Studios recently came out and they're like you know. 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. I'm so happy I can barely speak. You may have been a terrible presidential candidate and then even worse. Us senator but he is a rhino. And I like him a lot exclamation point a is he trying to even say like it does run. Ins. Republican in name only is but before. But I just like the whole like sarcasm thing like it's.

He's still president jokes even crisis and he referred to himself as a wartime president. I think early on in the crisis which is an amazing to imagine like if he was you know our FDR a world.

"Head to head in a brand new bracket style battle for one hundred grand the PBA playoffs begins night at seven eastern on one. And the Fox Sports we'll have a bowling trophy. Mike Raja was pretty good. I'm not gonna lie to you. A little spin on that thing joy and not a good bowler. Pretty excellent Eddie house. What Eddie house the new thin Eddie house for a radio audience? Let me describe what Eddie house looks like handsome. How much you lose? He like thirty. How hoping playing basketball and changed my diet a little bit? Fish chicken rice, how come? Did your wife say not really the big three victory? What the other thing was. I was you know, as I was walking around a little plump. I was getting compare. Everyone's like, oh, you look like your brother, and I'm like well. Yeah. I know we got similar, but always been the handsome one. Yeah. And as I started getting compared to you know, what I can't have that. This can't get confused with him. No more. He loves you, Mikey. But he's a good looking one. So, you know, whatever. All right eleven years in the NBA first of all come on. Let's give it up for Kyle guy. Hit Noche three free throw. No, not impressed. Because that's what you do. I mean, he's the best shooter on the team. He probably was the best shooter in that game. He's supposed to walk up here and knock them down not to take anything away from the fact that he did it. I mean, but you've you've ran over that scenario every single year since he was eight years old whenever you're working out you you put them scenarios on your. So we're down by one. I got two free throws. I gotta make you've already lived a situation and is in him being the best shoot on its shouldn't be no pressure. So walk right up to knock them things down is not as impressive as as everybody's making it out to be. Foul. I thought it was a fellow protect shooter was definitely he was getting hit on his leg before the ball was even released got fouled twice. He got fouled before the ball was shot. And then he got fouled because he wasn't able to land. So I always thought that you have to protect shooter that guy invaded. He moves under him. You can't do that in the NBA or college the inbounder. He should've that pass. It never happened that big. In that direction. Anything anything going to the basket allow a pass going towards the basket anything away from the best? You could live with that one one second because he the ball's going, wait. And he's got a heave anything going towards the basket. You gotta try to protect it. And that's twice. Auburn let Kyle guy get a shot at three he scored nine point six points in nine seconds. Yep. You're right. All right. So the athlete is a sports page subscription based sports page. They interviewed about twenty five thirty percent of the guys anonymously in the NBA national a bunch of questions, and which player would you build around and they had Janas number one by a mile, and then they had Anthony Davis way ahead of harden. Way ahead a staff, and I don't get it. Because it's a guard wing league. It's not a big link. Love Karl Anthony towns, I love him. He didn't get anybody into the playoffs. No Andrew Wiggins. That's been with Zach when they don't have Zac anymore. Levine's in Chicago. He couldn't get guys into the playoffs. Big need somebody to get him the ball and and start with Kevin Durant. No doubt. I mean look at that list. Kevin durant? Do everything that everybody on that list? Can do can everybody on that list? Do Kevin Durant. NBA players put Anthony Davis. Kevin durant? Kevin durant? Got to see that. And think this is why I want to go to New York. I mean, Kevin Durant is the is the best player in the league right now. He's the best player in the league. Like, I said he can do everything. What can Kevin Durant? What can you do different that? What what can you do the Kevin Durant? Does can't. She can't come down. He can't against take step back threes. Looking Katie do does everything. So I'm gonna Bill I will be a with K D a guy that we know not not to take any shots at the big the big have been come pretty much extinct now. Nobody's looking for. Oh, Patrick you. And we're going to dump down the ball down low to nobody's looking. Everybody's looking for three point shooter is a gorgeous league right now. Yeah. It's a tempo league. And the NBA used to be about if you won the boards you won the series. It's not the league anymore. No, not the leak. The other thing is the players voted, Michael Jordan over lebrons best player of all time. And it wasn't close players almost Kobe and LeBron James were neck and neck when you look at statistically LeBron's the much greater player as a former player if I said greatest of all time, you put Kobe LeBron who goes ahead. Lebron Kobe because we all aknowledge Michael you played against Michael Michael's the best you've ever played again. Okay. Kobe. Lebron though I'm surprised because I loved Kobe that players like Kobe more than we think. I have to I'll pull the Brana hit a Kobe for this overall skillset, and it's always been LeBron Jordan conversation anyway. So I don't understand how Kobe is the leapfrogs LeBron like this. I contend join I have been talking about this in the last year. Lebron is turned off a lot of players with all the mogul stop. And the Hollywood stuff. He's turned guys off also think about he's the active player up there who wants to vote their players the best player, and you gotta constantly go against, you know, your colleague, that's your competitor. Who you're trying to be? You're not going to sell them. No love. Now. Those that that poll if you look at that that that pose interesting you see magic one percent Kareem one percent as the older players in the league star. We now you'll see LeBron star going up and maybe Jordan coming down because the players in the league right now watch Jordan in about eight years is going to be a lot of these millennials. And who that they watched? They watched cove wash. Coby lebron. They really didn't see that much Jordan. So his numbers might come down. If you do that same poll in a few more one more thing on the poll. I don't mean to be petty. I didn't leave my show with this. We're an hour and a half into my show. I'm going to acknowledge it for the first time today most overrated player in the league was Russell Westbrook. If you don't stop just first time an hour and a half just may just noted it didn't even make it a topic. You want to slide it you find a way to slide it on in listen how is the overrated? Right. So three straight years, triple doubles, right? He's been top three led the league in the last two years players vote and was third. Okay. That's my players voted player would be wrong player being feeling players players. What do you mean by that? What I don't like do for whatever reason that goes the. You know, he's the most overrated person. I don't really like how you get down. I think he stepped stuff. Well, everybody stuff. You know, why? Because that's how you get paid. You put a stats? That's how you get your money. So we have staff stuff in at the end of the day when he does get a triple double. They win seventy five percent of their game. So is needed for him to do that. It should be celebrated by the way joy as my witness first time, I've talked about it. Time because I mentioned it. I didn't want to. I did it. Here's a hater. Right. Oh. Oh, no. That's there. If you can be. Just wear it. Just. He did not bring it up today though. This is the first time easily lead my when he's he likes. Say something that he's not going to lie. The players voted journalist bring these stories up can't just fly by didn't happen. True. True. But you are Hato Westbrook. Let's that's too strong. I am. I am a critical thinker. You are extremely tropical of a hater. I think I'm a true on the honesty broker America's honesty broker. You're was rose. Number one hater, all right? You're out of time. Let's go to join with news. This is the heard line new poll, although Kevin Durant in the warriors have clinched the first seat in the west. There's still question of.

"Hey, this could make. Russell westbrook. Karl Anthony towns get to the play offs before you speak the yellow, man. I feel bad for towns. He's so good right now, we've got like a car accident. And then he's suddenly like you'll so bad for that. It was prophesied. I do. Carl quote why? Play. I've ever seen in practice. And I've seen Jerry Rice. So Jon Gruden about Antonio Brown. We for him to be a wise move for the raiders. I don't know what Jon Gruden is doing. I don't know what he's doing with this, quote, right is Jon Gruden. 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. Mary's agent Eric Burkhard about the criticism. Former NFL GM Charley Casserly had for its client. What was your reaction to this? React joe. I'd like to hire this gentleman..

"The stretch of costumer DR in FOX or Karl Anthony towns, I'm just saying. Listen, you're I mean, you're you're one hundred percent, correct. And it's just not listen. It's amazing. What the nets did? Unfortunately, you know, no one really no one really cares. And then quickly on our Syracuse team. 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. But the fact is when you get a loss like rattles, you out your court shows, you how fragile team we are. And to me that part's this appointment like I should be. I don't want to have the lows in my season. You might have him once in a while. But I don't mind losses, but these rattle me like the second. Maybe we're not that good. You know? So it brings me back to the fear factor. I can be back on that. Alex, if they lose one in the next two, and I appreciate the call is always, my friend. Outstanding passionate is always they lose one in the next two games too. A Pittsburgh or a Boston College. Then you back on the bubble. You win those next two games. She's seven and two in conference, and to be honest, you right where you need to be. Let's say to Playfield New Jersey cranky up next on a foul. Yeah. Hi, J just wanted to make a point of what you said about the patriots. And ran the Rams are gonna really need to have girly play like girly and Donald then to dominate the game. 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. They don't need any major help. It's pretty evenly matched game. Listen, they're gonna need golf to point turnover. Free football Bella checks going to try to bait them into something. He's never seen before he did that with Patrick Mahomes in the I f Mahomes, it took him a good half Craigie to really get comfortable in the first half was Jerry. I thought he was nervous. I thought he was planning a championship game. For the first time. You saw them homes in the second half your life. Yeah. Is the MVP the week? This guy is going to be stopped for a long period of time. He was how many was cooking. And yes, he got the ball. I over time. He might won the ballgame. He was. God. Scares me in this spot the health for girl is going to scare you and angry patriot team is something I have now waging against in consecutive weeks. Let's just say has an well. Well against the chargers who to me one hundred fifty three were a better team, and they will poorly prepared in that game in their strategy in that game was just baffling and in the chiefs look Christian water. Yeah. What happens if d four doesn't lineup offside? What happens if they get the ball? I coulda shoulda woulda. They lost the game to me fan square. Saints on the other hand. They do not foul play. That's the story line going into this week. You're still lining. Maybe if you're sick and tired of the patriots being in a game. Like, I am is the fact that. Yeah. Any time during the game. It's good. It's very very good one.

"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.
