"Sometimes I just don't trust his handle, man. He gets so loose with it. He's so scattershot when teams blitz him and trap him and he's been like, God, this whole career. I am interested to see like, start to reintegrate the Kauai small pick and rolls. Kawhi John wall pick and rolls. If you blitz Kauai just hit John wall on the short roll, hit a hit canard canard is good at it in the short role. Let them make plays. We haven't seen a lot of that because Kawhi saw it at the beginning of the year. I think we started at the beginning of the season. The Kawhi Leonard pick and roll, yep. I think he's using his way back in. I agree with you totally on wall. He's been a little bit he's been up and down, but I think they need they just need that injection of pace and life and just someone run with me. Come on, run with me. If you run with me, I'm getting you a three. So get your ass in here and run with me. It's not the efficiency isn't what it was in Washington when he was at his peak. The long two isn't what it was in Washington when he was at his peak, but I think they need that element. And honestly, man, like we've been talking for years now, who's the point guard to the clippers need a point guard? We started the year. You and I talking about, you know, they can trade a future first round pick now for the first time in a few years, is there a consolidation trade to be made here? Is there a deal to be made here? Maybe there is. I'm sure they'll look around that pick is real currency for them. If you trade an unprotected pick, if it's top three protected, unprotected, whatever, yeah, you may not have the sexiest salary to attach, but you can get another guy. I mean, the pistons got Bogdanovich for a Linux and second round picks. Like, you can get another guy easily. If you put that first round pick and play, even though I think Marcus Morris contract is taking a little hit. I mean, he's been okay. I don't know if anyone is psyched to have Marcus Morris for $17 million next year. I don't know if anyone's psyched to have Covington for $11 million next year. Don't know if everyone's psyched to have canard for 30 combined over the next two seasons. Batum they need he's essential to their team. And then you're just kind of, I don't think anyone psyched to have norm Powell for 60 million over the next three years after this one and the clippers need him too. So you're kind of running out of if you even have any salary that's both expendable and appealing to other teams. But that pick, it's interesting. They could get something for it, but if not, this is the team. And. It's like 25 games of the season. I have all these numbers. Look at all these numbers on this sheet of paper. Rome, they don't matter. We haven't seen the team. They don't matter at all. You have a piece coming out on Saturday about Walt. Tell us about that piece because it sounds like it's going to be a good one. Thanks, man. Walls returning to D.C., I call it the return return to the sequel because he returned back in like 2021 with the use of rockets for the first time from the trade after Russell Westbrook, but during COVID restrictions, there was nobody in the building. The stands were covered by tarp, there wasn't even the courtside seats where his mom used to sit. He had lost his mom just a little over a year prior and then his grandmother passed away weeks before he turned back to D.C.. So he was very much like grief stricken. They played a video tribute for him. He didn't really get to see it. He wasn't the fans weren't there to really show appreciation to him. And I think it's important for him to feel that and for him to thank the fans. He was beloved in D.C.. So the wizards will give him a video tribute. And you know, I thought he was interesting a couple of things. I asked him, is your warp speed fully back? And he was like, he's close. He's not a 100% yet. And I think he's right. I think we've seen him at fast. Maybe if it's like, if he's a 5, 5, you know, he might not be in 5th gear. I think he's in fourth gear. And he said, I got to lose maybe like another 5, ten pounds at my age, you know, I need to get a little bit thinner. And so he was basically like, when I do that, it'll be back. But otherwise you've seen like the patented behind the back dribble in traffic. You see the no look passes. You see him running and attacking the room. I think he's missing a lot more at the rim than he probably would like to, or he's used to. But that probably will come with more time because he's never had to play in 6 minutes stretches and play under a minute limit and not play on back to back nights and also come off the bench. I did ask him I said, you know, do you have any regrets about your time in D.C. about maybe how things between you and Brad worked out because you guys weren't able to get past the second round. He said, no, he said, look, if anything, a lot of people tried to divide us all the time and say, you know, that we couldn't work together. We didn't like each other. He goes, that was never the case. He was like, he called him my brother. He said, we always had each other's back. He goes, yes. Did you have two guys who thought they should be the man and be the franchise? Yes, and sometimes you don't see eye to eye. Yes, that's true. He said, but he goes, if one thing I think about, if I could have done differently, he said, Brad expanded his game every year that he was there. And then when I was out, he became a 30 point score. He goes, I wish I could have been there to be his role dog when he was averaging 30. And when he was younger, I wish I gave him the ball more and let him work pick and rolls and let him handle the ball more so that he could become more of this playmaker that he is today, but earlier and then who knows what would have happened. So I thought that was a little interesting because, you know, that was the problem in D.C.. There was only one ball to go around with two guys that were terrific that needed the ball. And a lot of people thought that Bill would just be this guy that would just be a spot up and shoot guy, but no bills a lot more than that. So it's going to be important for him to get the love and I think he's going to get that on Saturday, hopefully. I will say this, Zach, Tyler, better play, John wall, good amount of minutes. At Houston, when he returned for the first time, he wanted to show and prove to Houston what he could do. Remember Houston sat him out the whole year. Thai played in 15 minutes and I don't think he played in the fourth and John was so furious and upset. He left the locker room very quickly after that game. So this is a very big game for him that this is the one game he looked at when the schedule came out. I would expect ty lue to play him a good amount in this game. Well, I'll be watching that game.

"Kawhi Leonard and Paul George were absent due to injuries and without them the warrior steamrolled the clippers beating LA one 24 one O 7. Andrew Wiggins made 6 threes and led Golden State with 31 points. Every game is going to be different. Steph's going to be stuff. Always. But tonight, the ball was moving to find a lot of people. And made some shots. Stefan curry added 22 points and Klay Thompson scored 15 of his 18 points in the first quarter. The clippers only scored 18 points in the second quarter and trailed by 29 points in the final period. In the loss, Marcus Moore senior with 19 points. Ryan leong, San Francisco

"To Luke canard when he runs around the court. He does draw the attention of the defense and open things up for them. And so I do think that you see coming to now. And this week, his hands are exceptional. I mean, the dude is always getting his hand on the ball's deflections, whatever it may be. But I do think just like you said, just as they start to get a rhythm, somebody's out somebody's hurt, the rules aren't defined. Everything was clicking magically that year when they went to the Western Conference Finals. They need to find that. And it's going to be a little disjointed after the all star break. When you only have 21 games to play, they find that. Those non zoo lineups are obviously going to look different and more fearsome with Kawhi and PG, both as part of them. If you put Kawhi PG batum, one of the point guards and then pick a wing, so no Covington, no Morris. Those are small, but I am interested to see how they look. I don't like the ones with Morris is the biggest guy because I think teams are going at him and he has trouble now keeping fast guys in front of him on switches. So I think Kauai, I think he looks better on defense than on offense. I think his defense looks ahead of his offense. He's been pretty active and looks good like he's moving well on defense, which I guess is an encouraging. So those lineups to me, I want to see you more, obviously. I think there's been a lineup Zach that they've used where Paul was the point guard. That's how many wings that were out there. I think they tried that. You know what ties doing? He's playing Paul and Kawhi together the majority of their minutes. He's not staggering them out. He basically in his mind's like, we got to get this going. We got to get these two as many minutes as possible together to get them kind of re acclimated to each other. And I do like that he's doing that. Yeah, that was interesting. That's been interesting because conventional wisdom is when the chips are down, you go the opposite way. And obviously when the chips are down in theory, they're both playing so many minutes that I'm talking playoff games, big playoff games that you make sure one is on the floor at all times. Right now he's doing the opposite. And again, I think that's part of playing the long game. I mean, this is team long game. They're playing the longest game. They're playing like as if it's a 400 game season. But that's the way they have to play. Wall's been good, Reggie has been wildly up and down and has the wildest split on catch and shoot threes versus pull up threes that I think I've ever seen. He's 34 of 79 on catch and shoot threes. That's 43%. He's 6 of 37 on pull up threes, which is like 16% or something but I don't know. My math is maybe wrong on that, but it's something like that. They've been okay, have we answered the age old question of do the clippers need another ball handler? Is that still a thing? No, I think we've answered that. It's just coming in a different manner of maybe what people want it to be. So Reggie Jackson, when the season started, when we were in Seattle, in the preseason, I told Reggie, I said, are you going to become a catch and shoot three point shooter this year? Because John wall and Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are drawing so much attention that the client in the corner is wide open and that's you or Nick batum. And I said, so are you going to become like Steve Kerr this year? As opposed to having to create your own offense and he's like, yeah, he's like a bunch of us talked about it and you know I have to really work on that part of the game. He's been great at it. The problem is that he's been so banged up. He took this fall in Portland that I'm telling you, I thought he'd be out for a week. I thought his hit was messed up or his back. I even thought his head hit the back of the floor. He was dazed. But he has stayed in the game and kept playing, but he also has not been able to really create any separation one on one. And I also don't think that like when the big guys were out, Reggie Jackson, it was now becoming incumbent on him to kind of create a lot of offense. And then we saw a little bit glimpses of old Reggie from a couple of years ago. But he also is trying to fit in when the big guys are back and do what he's doing and then, of course, when John comes in, it's totally different. John has given them an element that they just don't have. And he's forcing it, which is he's just going to go straight at the rim. It doesn't matter if anybody's running alongside with him. Does it matter if two or three guys are in front of him? He's going to attack the rim, push the pace. And I think this is good. He's like sucking the defense in a little bit and either trailers open or there are guys open for threes and he's finding those open shooters. And the clippers are exceptional at catch and shoot three pointers. They were great at it last year. They're going to be good at it. Again, this year, even better with John wall finding them. So I do, I just think we don't have that point guard, I wonder if we have that point guard when with 5 minutes ago, in a playoff game, Zach, defenses are locking down on Paul and Kauai. Let's say 8 minutes ago, pawn choir not able to get their own shots off or scores efficiently. They go a little bit through an offensive drought. And that's where you need a point guard to create for them to get them easier shots in a half quart setting. That's where I wonder if they kind of have that point guard or not. You know, they're hoping maybe John can be that guy, but sometimes it's going to depend on what unit tie wants to finish with. He might just finish with Reggie or my finish with Paul at point guard. Yeah, you know, Paul George had an incredible playoffs two years ago. That streak of like 27 points or more in games or whatever it was. Pandemic pee was buried forever. Way off pea

"I understand Kawhi saying like, yes, in a lot of instances it might take two years before an ACL, someone coming off an ACL tear looks normal, but I don't recall anything remotely like this. From an ACL tear recently, like, we're kind of post ACL tear. It's like we know that person's gonna miss a year, but we kind of expect that person to come back now, right? That is a really interesting point. Obviously, we don't know what kind of discomfort Kawhi has. How it healed, neither of us are doctors. But super macro pull back 30,000 feet view of that injury. When we were kids, or when I was a kid, at least you were probably not even born then. When I was a kid, that was a massive injury, right? That was something that could be even a career under. Now it's one of those things where you're like, man, you know, if it's what happens at the beginning of the season, they'll be fine by the next season. So it is a little unusual relative to how ACLs have been treated over the last decade. Yeah, man, and, you know, obviously he is generally been very cautious. And with injuries, I mean, remember, when he got hurt, we were kind of like, is it a tornado? Do we know what's going to happen? Is he going to play in game 6 of this next series? Is he going to miss the next year? Like, we didn't even know, and yeah, the reason I wanted to talk about it is I still just don't really get a great vibe from all this and listen to this scene that came into a lot of expectations.

"If he plays less than 15 out of 21, you don't have to do anything because that's to be expected. If you place 15 or more free dinner in LA, okay, and so I would say this, the three pointer has not looked good for him at all. He does not have any rhythm from behind three point. He definitely looks like he is more and more of a playmaking role. What I thought was so good, the Charlotte game was good for him and the clippers is because they were in this tight situation where they got to see Kauai bailed him out. And in that situation, like Kawhi got to his spot, he scored in the mid range, looked like old Kawhi. They needed that, actually. They needed to be in a situation like that because they just haven't had that kind of time together. And what you saw was Paul, all had a chance. He grabs a loose rebound, almost near half court. And now he's sprinting out and he's got one guy in front of him. And it took it to the rim with like 15 seconds ago. He backs it back out, passes a John wall in the right corner because he sees Terry Rozier on Kawhi Leonard on the right wing. Charlotte switches in time gets McDaniels onto Kauai, but now Kauai has the ball ISO kawaii then scores at the end of the game winner. Clippers feel good because they're like, this is what we needed. We needed to be in a situation like this. We need to see why I do this. And I think it was really good for Kawhi. You know, when you hear Kawhi talk after the game and he's talking about, I would have rather pulled it out. We're up 8 to 9 rather than having to grind it out, but it was good for him to pull out a game like that to win like that to see himself hit a shot like that. I think that was good for him, but you're right. Just to clarify, this is against the Charlotte hornets. Yes. This isn't like, oh, we went to Milwaukee. No. Well, we survived adversity. This is like, whoo. Mason plumlee, man. We got out of mason plumlee's house. No, no LaMelo Ball. Charlotte hornets, okay? No Gordon Hayward, Charlotte hornets. Then the next night, a couple nights later in Orlando, they're up by like 18 to start the game against the magic. They look great. I mean, Paul George kleiner look great. And which I think you're seeing is quite knows the impact of him just being on the floor, even though he's not too time Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard yet, okay? He's getting that respect. So a lot of guys are more open than nicktoons of the world are benefiting because they're wide open and he's finding them. He is more of a playmaker. They jump out to this big leap, but then all of a sudden, bench comes in and then when the starters come back in the third quarter, it doesn't look good. And so all of a sudden, Orlando is now in the game at the end of the fourth quarter and you can tell like the execution is not good for the clippers. They just, I don't know what happened, but they're executing like they're the Orlando Magic, and the Orlando Magic or executing like the clippers. And so you see it like these air and passes these turnovers, Nick platoon 5 seconds on the inbound, yeah, I mean, it was painful to watch, and now they go into overtime and guess what? Kawhi Leonard has one minute left on his minutes restriction. He's had about 29 minutes and Paul George is at 32 or 33. He can't play. So now they're like, we're going to say why to the final minute, they bring in Kauai in the final minute, but by then they just couldn't execute and win that game. They bar Paul George and for the final 5 seconds. And this is all things that this is not of ty lue's doing, Zach. Tyler doesn't want to do this on purpose. He's not trying to act like Phil. And try to be like, oh, I'm trying to prove something or anything like that. No, this is what he's been told that he has to do. And so you feel like, you know, I think after the game, Andrew grey was in the locker room from the LA times, the beat writer, and Kawhi said, I want to be out there. I want to play. I understand the medical staff is trying to keep us healthy, but I want to be there. I want to try to help lead this team. Same thing for Paul George. I would say this, Zach, I was surprised that they were already up in the 30 minute range. For their wet second game back, I get it. They had a long time off. But I thought the clippers would be a little more conservative with their minutes. So I think that's a good sign to see that they're already in the 30s. And maybe they'll ramp it up, but Zach, their schedule, three times December started three times. There are three weeks in the month of December where they play four games in 6 nights. So they are packing it in in December that's a lot of games that you're going to a lot of that is back to back. So you're going to see quite not playing this back to backs. John wall as well. It's definitely a work in progress. The science experiment as you call it is the perfect descriptions act. Let's be positive for a second. They are 5th in defense.

"When he got hurt again and then spraining his ankle and being out another 6 games, Paul George with his hamstring injury, these things are going to pop up and this team for better or worse the clippers. They're just going to take it safe. Their whole thing is they're going to wait until the place to make sure everything's right. But you can see a scenario again where we're talking about the Zach. They don't have the chemistry. They don't have the time together. They're still learning one another. Oh, all of these great deep pieces they have. Well, they just don't have the time together. And guess what, Zach? The schedule as it was, the schedule makers, and I don't know why they do this. They packed in 61 games for the all star break. They got 21 after they all start brick, which means it's a good and bad thing, Zach. A lot of practice time for them, but not a lot of on court time for them in games. And you know what's going to happen probably that last week of the season, clears are probably going to rest a bunch of guys. You know what I mean? To make sure that they're okay for the playoffs. And we're going to be looking at like Kawhi Leonard's only played what, I don't know. 15 games with the team going into the playoffs after all star break? Who knows? Well, I mean, look, when you it's like, I need a vacation from my vacation. When I take a nap, I need another nap. I'm so tired. If we've rested so much by April, we got arrested again for the playoffs. Again, I get I get all of it. We want to be fresh for the playoffs. You mess around, you might be fresh for the lottery when you don't even have your pick, by the way. So that great, your fresh for the summer. It's awesome to be physically fit and fresh. You're trying to win the title and speaking of the schedule, there are 13 and 11, which is, I don't know where they are in the west, the standings are still bunched up. Like 6 or something like that. They were 12. I've lost track of the record. 14 and 12. Okay. They're -45 for the season. That's their point, raw point differential. That's a 7th worst point differential in the NBA. So again, that's but they're fresh. Great. They're fresh and -45. Hawaii, has played 6 games, I think, or 7 games. That's sounds of our 7 game sounds about right, I think. 7 games. And by the way, you mentioned kalei might end up playing, what did you say 40 something games? I mean, who knows? Well, no, I said from the all star break until the end of the season when they have 21 games remaining. Does Kawhi play like, let's say, 15 of them, because they're not going to have a lot of back to back, so he's not going to skip a lot of the, I mean, he will probably sit out the back to backs. But I'm just saying like, you know, if they decide to rest guys at the end for the final week or whatever, but you work to your point. We don't know what place they'll be playing for in the standings because the organization is fully aware that they've had to let a lot of games go here prior to them coming back just because they haven't been available and guys have been hurt and Saturday was a classic case of that.

"I was just about to say the same thing. So the nature of that report was interesting. Just to give people the proper context, Chris Haynes, who is a great reporter, I think clearly he wanted to get this one out on TV, like TNT had the Thursday games back on. After they'd moved to Tuesday nights in deference to the NFL and hanes kind of drops this bombshell on the TV, I believe he's right. The problem is we don't know what Kawhi's schedule was, so we have no idea what ahead of schedule means either. Only that, I guess, considering playing this season, but I guess I kind of always thought he was considering playing this season. I just don't know how excited to actually get. That's a good tempered way to react to this news. I on the other hand have already booked my finals hotel in Los Angeles. I'm just not gonna crash with me. I see. I never got in the invitation. It's not gonna do the open floor Hype House. We're just filming tiktoks all day. We can assess offline for sure. But I said that I wasn't going to get ahead of my skis and pick a title or title favorite what was that 15 minutes ago? And if big if cool I Leonardo comes back shortly after the all star break looks great. I love the clippers. They were my pre season pick and a lot of that was based on Kauai. I think he's second to none truly when he's a 100% healthy. I take him just about over anyone and you're just gonna not ready to have the best lawyer in the world conversation. No, it's all fair. I go down with the ship when it comes to Kauai. Longtime listeners know. But I'm just talking like in like for a playoff run if this guy's healthy he just there's no weaknesses. I don't see weaknesses with him and I love the defense. I love the defensive versatility of the labs. You can play around him. And I think they would have won the title last year. If he didn't get hurt, but it's like, you know, I look at the clippers team and they're so fascinating. With Paul Georgia with Kawhi out, they beat the hawks in the hot, and we're gonna talk about them in a minute, but the clippers say, yeah, they do. And they have tremendous coaching. They have lineup. Everybody lose their damn Craig. Trust us Winslow, man, getting some run having some moments, shout out to justice. He's in the rotation. Yeah. Yeah, shout out to him. Coffee, just like hitting every canard. Reggie Jackson. Here's what I'll say about Kauai. Which, once again, let me ask you this, Mike. If you had to bet every dollar in your bank account, does Kawhi Leonard play this season?.

"I know, I know I shouldn't be a prisoner to short term thinking and impatience, but at some point you gotta be a team. And we've been having this conversation for four years. At some point you gotta be a team. At some point you can't get to April and May and have all the commentary about you be, oh, boy, we took the regular season for granted. We didn't build chemistry, how did that happen? Oh my God, why do we have no identity? Can you please say something good only because I'm starting to get a little worried and impatient? For those at home who can't see Zach. As he's talking had his hands over his eyes, ready to rip out his hair in frustration and I would say that's what ty lue has looked like for the last two weeks or three weeks. Ty lue has been pretty frustrated. I'm not going to say he's frustrated with the medical staff or anything like that or at Kawhi Leonard and Paul George specifically because he doesn't think that they're they don't want to play. But the frustration has just been that they have not been available or anytime they get somebody back, somebody else is out. I would say last weekend, the frustration was palpable throughout the organization when we all thought that Paul George and Kawhi Leonard were going to play and a 1 o'clock game against the Sacramento Kings. They had practice on Friday, all indications were that they were going to be cleared if they made it out of that practice okay. And then Saturday morning when we get ty lue, Tyler, it's just like they're out. And the one question someone asked him and he was Jamie maggio asked him, hey, you know, your second quarter hasn't been that great. And ty frustratingly just goes, well, we need players. And so we need guys out there. And so that to me was, you know, he's really starting to show his frustration. Finally, the next game against Charlotte, these guys are back. Zack, we've been I said this in the pre season, I think when we talked about the clippers that you could see a scenario in which it was going to be very up and down all season long, Kawhi Leonard is starting on a minutes restriction, not playing it back to back, same thing for John wall. The case is still the same, except for the fact that we didn't see Kawhi Leonard missing 15 straight gains or whatever.

"Everyone, the fans, the players could have that moment of their three guys back on the court together. That stuff's awesome. That's what makes team sports so special. So I thought that was just a great moment and really something the NBC is needed. Building off of that, I mean, I think clay looked good. You kind of hit the highlights there. We looked really well. Second and third quarters, especially once he settled into the game. I'm sure his heart rate, a commute, imagine what it must have been like during that first stretch. I'm interested in a couple of things. First and foremost, what is their closing lineup going to be because I think they have more options, frankly, than they've ever had before. If they're looking for that quote unquote, death line up three, we know Wiggins, Steph, clay, and Dre in a playoff game are going to be four guys on the court down the stretch. But then you have options you have loony, you have wise men potentially. You have the steel. I gotta say the first two names that you just get there are you have the steel be elites up, but then also you have another guy to hound guards defensively. You have Gary Payton the second obviously of Iguodala auto Porter's head moments this season. If you want to go super small and rely on scoring, you have Jordan Poole. They just have so many options now to close games. I think that's going to be really interesting. I also think it'll be I would expect some hiccups kind of working play back into the rotation here, only because you have those aforementioned players who've really settled into their roles, and now everyone's going to have to kind of adjust a bit to accommodate him. So there might be a couple hiccups, but I think they have so many options to close games now. That's got to be pretty frightening. Yeah, I think this is the biggest takeaway. And now that clay is healthy and he's actually on the court and we know that he can run and he can dunk in traffic and he can get shots up. And I thought he competed on the defensive end at the top that he got blown by a couple of times, some closeouts. And it's like, okay, it's his first game and what is it like 941 days or whatever. I'm not expecting him to look like Kawhi Leonard in the 2013 finals. It's just not that should not be the expectation. But he competed, he was on Garland for a stretch, did a pretty good job against the I mean, he played against a really weird team to the yeah, he was guarding him. Guys in the post there. Yeah, yeah. So it's tough to take a ton away from this one game, but I thought he'd looked he looked good.

"Now. A couple of questions. I have here for you one. Is you guys are operating this business. And i would say that it is. It is disruptive what you're doing from what i can tell. The brand seems to be disruptive. What do you accredit the the rapid growth to do. What do you attribute the rapid growth to why is it. Being such a disruptive success. I would say there's more people coming to the category now right so there's certain people that would never try an energy drink right that more health conscious consumer really was not interested in putting in other bodies some of these beverages that had you know some you know ingredients that you can't even pronounce so as more people. Are you know looking for energy solutions. Whether it's a coffee drinker. That wants something. A little bit cleaner lighter Or you know somebody that might be drinking other energy drinks but is trying to live a healthier lifestyle. You know. i think that's really where the disruption comes in also. There's never really been a brand that you know was built in the locker room in this energy category right so you know. We're really fortunate that Death net recently featured us as a sports drink. Innovator we're not really a sports drink. We're not a hydration drink or something that you might take Before you want to do some exercise or if you wanna just have a little bit more energy and focus throughout the workday but you wanna have it with clean healthy ingredients and you know the other reason why people might consider us to be somewhat. Disruptors is just because of you know this athlete a model. there really haven't been athletes like saquon. Barkley labonte david kawhi leonard and now kendall tool who's one of the top peleton athletes That are joining a company like ours as shareholders and partners in the business. I think it's just you know shedding some light that there is renovation innovation in the energy category and that's where we could probably be looked at as being somewhat

A Look Back at the 2001 Film 'In the Mood for Love'

"Let's get to that review of in the mood for love the sixth and final film our world of car marathon. This marathon has been inspired by wong's recent restoration of seven of his best known films. All of which are included in the criterion collection's new world of car. Kawhi box set. Thankfully these are also available. They're currently streaming on the criterion channel. Right now in the mood for love debuted at the two thousand canned film festival where it was nominated for the palm door and start tony. Leon won the fess best-actor prize. It opened here in the states in march two thousand one to pretty universal critical acclaim. But maybe this is something we can talk a little bit about josh. My feeling is that its reputation has only grown over the last twenty years for example back at the end of the last decade in late. Two thousand nine. The guardian had in the mood for love as it's forty eighth best film of the decade fast forward ten years later for a best films of the twenty first century list mood and moved up all the way to number five and then in two thousand sixteen. The bbc pulled over a hundred critics for a best movies of the twentieth century. Lists and in the mood for love landed at number two right behind no real surprise to me. My beloved mulholland drive from director david lynch and other films that is probably only grown in esteem over the years quickly. The plot it set in early nineteen sixties hong kong sort of picks up where days of being wild left off josh. It's part of an informal trilogy with that film and wong's later film twenty forty six. Tony leon and maggie cheung our neighbors in a cramped boardinghouse. They're both married. They're both lonely and they soon realized that their spouses are having an affair with each other. Leon chung bond over this betrayal and eventually do get quite close but never act on their feelings for each other this being a one car y movie after

"When they did. They did they and he got hurt. No no no no. They lost a denver. Get hurt did they get better or worse. Getting rid mantras heroin. Lou williams i guess how they could get better or worse see. How would they get better. They went to the conference finals. Well everybody in the west got hurt. So yeah they did they not the teams they played against in have injured. Mike conley did not have any injuries. Donovan mitchell did not have any injuries help you watch the western conference. Semifinals did they. Did they get better or they get worse without mantras. Herro without lou williams. I don't think they better. They get worse they did not get better get better they get not get better okay. You listen it's okay it's okay. It's striving it's not a good argument in making working. In fact he's not a number one. This is not quarterbacks. The only thing that matters is the guy that lock ten years before time ran jameis. Winston was their quarterback not a quarterback. Okay so take your words he is. He was never the leader in the locker room. And he couldn't make the smart place. Tom brady comes into a franchise at haddon. One jack squat in a decade. They had no leadership. Tom brady assumes leadership. Okay takes control the team and they win the super bowl j. j. lebron james everywhere he goes win championships. He is a leader. They win the this year. What they davis the they wanna give somebody. Somebody got hurt right. Oh somebody got hurt. Enjoys element to them to play your best when you're ballet chip when your best player gets hurt and you're in the conference finals it's probably gonna to limit your upside. Is that fair. That's fair but you'll have refused to go back to what happened against denver or we can just blame mantras. Herald and doc rivers and lou williams. It's funny the blame. Never falls on koa and i and i know it sounds like i'm being critical. Not he's a great player. Why leonard is outstanding. He's arguably the best player in the league but from my perspective he's n- cannot be your number one. You need a leader on the team. I frankly don't know who the leader is next year. I mean they got eric bledsoe. Maybe he's the guy with kawhi out. But i don't see it and i don't see them winning a championship with kawhi leonard as their number one. I just don't see it okay. They need a leader. He's got to go out and got to champion. Admitted he was never the leader on either team. He's what you're talking about with leadership you have. Look here's the the structure of the structure of the structure of teams is all about. You gotta find out. Who's your best player. And how do we put guys around him. How do we find the best kind. Mix around him if you will quiet. Leonard is a great not good basketball player will guard. He will guard the best player. He will take the big shot. he's had to become a better passer something that he didn't doesn't naturally do. Ray grew up as a post player. He's not he's not naturally somebody who loves being in front of the media but that is not leadership okay. That's leadership from. Jason mcintyre leadership is do. Can you get those guys to follow you. Can you get those guys to accept their all gay and that comes down to find the right mix between coach and player and players among themselves and the clippers. Were playing fantastic basketball when everybody else was freaking out. And they were down two games to none they didn't and then they and what they did. And how and. I love lucado chick. Love him okay. Okay but but they embarrassed luca in that. He can't guard at the other end himself. He can't make active. He had thirty average threes into my head in seven. Yes he's an amazing durant numbers and half. I'll be able to aris luca you have to be able to raise the level of everybody else around you. That's what you have to do. That's what the true rate ones do. They make everybody else better. And i think luka is great but whatever happened between him presume. They're gonna shuffle out guys. He's going to have to find a way to get somebody else to to to bring somebody else up to his level or he'll forever talking about injuries. Porzingas is a great guy to bring up. Because he can't say healthy. But doug i did look up the word leadership the action of leading a group of people or an organization. It's leonard the face of the clippers. Yes how many interviews is he given since his injury. I don't know again in your mind. Everything is about interviews. Nobody actually listeners of art of you. don't don't faint. The music faced the music you can. Anybody could be a leader when things are going great and swimming and winning championships. Anybody could get a microphone. Then he's face what you are losing and not holding up here into the bargain and not advancing the way. You should the clippers the favorites by the way two years ago when they choked against nuggets. Something you keep dodging by the way. Oh they were they. Were down to nothing to the maverick doug. They were favored the entire series heavy favorites. They were every breath getting denver so if the the denver loss explain it to be pleased i need. I need to hear that. Okay in the bubble clippers didn't want to be there and frankly lakers didn't really want to be there and what what really happened was lakers weren't bad mental shape and then the kenosha thing happened where they laws. They missed two games and they had a chance to kind of recoup and regenerate. And if you remember the draw that they got the got houston who couldn't be who couldn't beat them during the process of that time they kinda survived. While the clippers fell apart they fell apart. Because lou didn't want to be there caused a lot of internal strife with the team they had remember had three or four guys. Mantras showed up late. Didn't want guys just didn't want to be there. They didn't want to be honest to begin the existence. It didn't go away. They were up three one on denver halftime of having since seven. Look dude it happens it happens. That's what happens in it's called sports. You can't necessarily plan for you. Can't prepare for comebacks to happen. I mean jamal. Jamal murray was out of his mind. Good he was incredible. Yokich was amazing. They let me. can i call them now. You mentioned the lakers own. Wanted who they're so so they get so they get they get beat. Okay and the lakers. Who didn't want to be there now or like do. There's nobody who we don't. They didn't match up well with the clippers eight year. There's nobody who can beat us. And by the way that next series the lakers families arrived. It helped kind of reenergized them. Like i were a little bit better state. And they didn't ask to have to play the bucks. They ended up getting the heat in the finals. And by then you get to. We're all gonna win eight games. It became winning time. Lebron was what was really good. Anthony davis was incredible. They were the best defensive team and they won in the bubble. It happens every year every series of different story to itself. I can't explain why in every game right and games was a game. Five in game six. They were awful in the third quarter. Awful choked away a big lead and then by by game seven. It was over before they ever played the game because mentally having given away those previous two games. I believe game five was actually. I remember a very very winnable game for them. Okay and then game six. The same thing happens and here we go again like that happens in sports but has enough equity in the sport of basketball not just from this year but from the toronto year from the spurs year. Okay he may not be the easiest to deal with injuries. You never know what the store. You're getting hurt. He's not her. Why is he pushing back against whatever but the dude plays both ends of the floor. He rebounds he defense he scores. He's clutch score. He's become a very good three point shooter. He's a go to get his own bucket. He's become better passer like just because he's not loquacious and funny and grabbed the microphone and crack jokes and make you laugh awesome cream. Wasn't that way either okay. Kareem abdul-jabbar is the is hold on. I know.

"To add Justice Winslow for most of the taxpayer mid-level exception. So I think the Clippers have done a pretty good job here, rebuilding their depth BJ. Boston has looked really good in summer league. We're starting. I think kind of see why am I? Yeah, this guy there's a reason why people thought he might be a first-round pick him. Why the Clippers feel comfortable, giving him a whole bunch of guaranteed money in the second round late in the second round. To a guy who was back in the fifties. There are other rookie. Jason Preston, got a nice contract. So I think the Clippers have done a good job here. Rebounding from what could have been a rough offseason. I may have more or less taking care of business and they've got some trade Assets Now. Moving forward. You got Keon Johnson on rookie-scale Deal. You've got Luke Kennard that you could put into a contract, Patrick beverley's, home. Hiring and 14.3 million. So they're in a position now where I think they could do some things if they get in the season and realize are we need some help before Kawaii gets back if he does get back to this page. Yeah, exactly. And I think that they're positioning will be a factor there. You know, if the Clippers are on the outside looking in to the plants, which I know project but if they were then they're probably not going to rush him back much. You're not going to see him really pushed to come back, but it's just a spot where they can really make a run, then you could see them come back potentially and, and really make an impact. Give them a nice boost heading into the playoffs, you know, the Clippers looked, I mean, surprisingly and to their credit dangerous, even without Kawhi, Leonard in the playoffs, they were, they were very, very good and and so I could see where they could still find themselves very much in the mix and the west and then get Kauai back and then they could be off and running. But let's, let's move onto. We Got Something official from one of the free agents that's out there. It's been connected to a lot of teams pretty much any team. That's, that's looking for shooting, which is a lot of teams wage. Right in the offseason have been looking for shooting and there's been a lot of talk about JJ Redick. And of course, you know, you think of shooting JJ Redick is one of the first names that to pop up and on his podcast the other day. JJ, made it official announced that he will not be signing with the team this offseason instead. He's going to wait, said he will not be in training camp with any team and said, he's going to wait a few months and then get into the season and then decide where he wants to go. What do you think about that strategy? From the veteran guard, you know, he's going to try to latch on somewhere to win a championship, but waiting things out until the middle of the Season before he commits. Yeah, I think it's smart. I think if New York or Brooklyn was sitting there to give him a fully guaranteed contract, right now, he'd probably take it, but neither one of those teams is there, but with that way, they don't have the ability to even do that. I maybe the next could get there at have to figure out after cuz they're still pending a couple official signings with 48 Burks and Rose bath. But I think if you're JJ Redick, yeah, wait spend the time with your family..

"The Clippers used, what leverage they could and they probably use the leverage of there's nobody else left there. There's no one left for you to sign with all the teams with cap space have used it. Anything else would have to be a sign-and-trade and those teams are now probably very likely and messy cap situations to make that happen. Anywhere you'd be interested in going. So yeah, I think this was down a little bit of a leveraged play on their side, but I think for the most part, this is Kawhi kind of saying, I want to be here. He's now locked into for all purposes, the same deal as Paul George and they'll move things forward board from here. Probably togethers much as they can with the two of them and that does make sense. You know, one of the themes of this offseason has been the, the risk, you know, a lot of people say, they, you bet on yourself like, oh, it says this big. I don't know this bold move or something like that, right? And it can be, but we've also seen you, look at at your newest guy, Dennis Schroder, how that can go wrong and in particular wage. For talking about injury. I mean, even go back to say Victor Oladipo who turned down some bigger contracts and now is playing once again, on the veteran-minimum. We've seen how quickly that money can evaporate. So, if you're sitting in a while, Leonard shoes right now, and probably not speaking a whole lot. But if you're sitting in Kawhi Leonard shoes, you are sitting there thinking, I'm rehabbing an injury at the moment. What if this does not go the way I wanted to go. What if this becomes more of a chronic thing. What if I can't get 100% back, isn't it better to lock up that money right now than potentially chance in? And I can see that having some appeal as well. Thought I think twice. Not going to get back to 100% think he's going to be just fine. But given his current situation. I would think that having that long-term security has got to be even more appealing. Yeah, completely agree. And I think from the Clippers side you're looking at it is, this is now you're Kevin Durant situation, where it's going to be out for the year, but you know, you have them locked up for at least three years after this and then then you you get after birth. Karen. I think this is one of those situations where we came into this saying. It was maybe a 1% chance. He left La. There were teams that it sounded like he was going to take meetings with but there was never materialized as far as we know. And and now money dried up very quickly. Roster spots have dried up very quickly. We're going to talk about that a little bit more here in a minute. So yeah, I think this was just a hey, this is what's best for everybody involved. Let's get this done. Let's move on. Now. He can just focus on his rehab and getting back in a question now becomes when does he get back? Will he play at some point this year? The Clippers, did I think really good work? Otherwise, they retained Nic Batum on a very from a contracted finally filed. And it's three point two million next year. They use their non-bird rights to give him as much as they could and then 3.3 million dollar player option for next season. So if back As another big year, you can opt out and go, they got Reggie Jackson for the early bird contract for a couple of years with him..

Shannon Sharp: Kawhi Leonard Will Not Win a Championship for Clippers

"We have some big clippers news and even though there's no timetable set for his return we now know will be sticking around in la. Yesterday quiet agreed with the clippers to a four year deal. They player option. That is worth over. One hundred seventy six million according to ward so shannon will. He lead the clippers to championship. During this contrast this up look at it like this. Break it down like this. We do know that there's a likelihood that he's gonna miss some of the season this year. You're going to be some or is it going to be all. He missed fifteen games with thirty. Gave me say you know what guys. I'm gonna make sure totally healthy because this is what we know about learning history. He does not play hurt. So i'm gonna say this year. I'm gonna wash it up. He played on even though. I think there's a fifty fifty chance. He does play but he missed some games. You better hope. He doesn't play this year art. I wanted to play. I wouldn't i wouldn't play. It doesn't matter to me He we don't worry about we. Don't worry about the other squad but anyway so that's one year so he has two years left. Because the fourth option basically skip. That's an insurance policy. In case the need do give out on it. Because we know his history. He's had some issues over the last several years. That's called the time. I was gonna say they don't scale because i don't believe the nets. I don't believe we are walking out. Don't believe the lakers. I don't believe some of these other teams have some of the issues that they have now. When you signed when you have two guys on deals paul george and aqua leonard it becomes very difficult for you to fill out your roster with significant players basically. You're getting guys who mid level exceptions you guys taking the vet minimum.

"Top five top ten player but we don't know we don't know now we don't know and has not been able to make through. You know that was. It was a tough go during the toronto run right and then obviously it ended horribly in the very weird season and we have to remember so he was all the way injured into antonio he took all kinds of games off When he was in toronto and then it was a rough go during the playoffs. Then he goes to the clippers takes a ton arrest tons of rest and has a monster break before they go play in the bubble right which is not available in any other regular season and then this year obviously didn't make it all the way through. And so you're you're going on. You know not a great track record of the most recent three four years of feeling like this is a guy that's going to be able to play if i'm spending two hundred forty six million dollars. I'm hopeful that a guy could play seventy games for me and be available for the playoffs. You don't know what you're going to get from. Hembo ve and ford and for the clippers like you have an opportunity to bring collide leonard backlog term you bring coli leonard backlog term regardless of any questions regardless of whether he goes to your doctor's regardless of whether he shows you his medical records here taking a chance on kawhi leonard. Would that said though. Chris for the clippers. You wanna bring coli back you wanna bring him back long term. This will now be year. Three of the colli leonard. Paul george experiment year one. The team was fraudulent ear to. They get hurt year three. Do you have your best player out for. Possibly all of the regular season be might not even make the postseason. Because now you get the warriors gonna reloaded. The lakers are getting better. There's a report earlier today from shaam. Shahrani i believe that they're are more willing to have the five and lebron at the four more often which could unlock a heck of a lot for that team on the offensive end of the floor. The lakers are going to be better. Teams like the nuggets. They'll get all murray back. Sooner than the clippers would get leonard back. I mean the. Pelicans should get better. These younger teams. The mavericks should get better the clippers phil good be playing conversation. Just like the lakers war or this season they might even be for like a seven or eight seed for the plan..

"Kevin o'connor kevin o. Palmer kevin o. Concert given oh camera kevin o. Climber aka kevin o. canvas. Kevin oh candy lane. Kevin killian jabber. What's going on buddy. Well as we are recording this on a tuesday night a little extra lag time in the nba finals with them having an extra day off little. Did we know that there would be news break on a tuesday night and it was big news because one of the superstars of the game quiet. Leonard had an injury that kept him out of the playoffs. All of the details about his injury were rather murky. We in fact goofed about it a few weeks ago and then it comes out. Tonight that had a partial tear of his acl that required surgery and that he has already underwent surgery for the partially torn. Acl which is a very long recovery kevin so we got a lot to sift through with this when he saw that news. Come across. What was your first reaction. If acl injury recovery is about nine months thou places return about april twenty twenty two which would be the start of the nba playoffs. So if go. I signs the clippers. Or if he goes somewhere else his return might not be the start of the postseason. And if the clippers do get kawhi leonard back. I would think on something either. You know one and one. Maybe he opts out of his player option for next season then signs a one plus one that way he could become a free agent again. Twenty twenty two if you wanted to or opt in again. But if he were to do that. It's going to be a situation where the clippers are going to have a full season without kawhi leonard guarantee. They need to make the playoffs. They might be in the plane. So i mean it's insane the ripple effects here for the clippers and the short term and the long term. 'cause who knows what's gonna do who knows when he'll be back and we know with him chorus he's going to be super super conservative with his comeback. He very well might just missed the entire season knowing his history with injuries while especially because he'll be thirty one years old right thirty one years old with a history of injuries. And i think maybe dependent upon. And i know this is. This isn't the fun way to talk about this. But dependent upon how much of the bag gets secured as they say because kuwa- leonard has a very interesting situation leading into this offseason. He can become a free agent if he declines his thirty. Six million dollar option. He can re-sign with the clippers for four years for one hundred and seventy five million or he could also as you mentioned signed a one year deal and then next year he would be eligible for a two hundred forty six million dollar contract. And that's because he's only been with the clippers for two years so i don't have his bird rights right now. One more season would give them his bird rights which would allow them to sign him to a five-year max contract. Which is why the big differential and the finances there. Yeah and so if you are the clippers and the thirty one or watching a thirty. Six year. Old at times be the best player in the nba finals. So it's not out of the realm of possibility that we get.

Kawhi Leonard Has Surgery to Repair Partial Tear of Right ACL

"Crazy breaking news. Kawhi Leonard had surgery for a partially torn ACL in a lot. That's not good explains a lot. Yeah never heard. I had never heard of an ACL injury that you know, didn't require surgery or wasn't some level of at are they're so hyper extent, hyper-extended knee injuries, and things like that. But the way they described that the ACL injury, I mean, I saw another kind of stuff that they were trying to play their, you know, you always have. I don't know what they're sending out mixed signals on injuries, especially in the playoff series. You know, is a guy going to play tonight. Is he not dead teams? Do that a lot, but it was always weird to me that an ACL injury was played, in a way that he could have possibly returned, cuz now surgery is going to knock him out at least. For part of next season and there's a guy that can become a free agent opting out this year. So you might have the Clippers in a situation here where they kind have to do that Katie thing and eat part of that first year just to keep them long time. And this is tougher guy who already was starting to deteriorate a little bit and it's lower. Body had to take a lot of load management days since 2017 with that injury against ZaZa. And, you know, was always kind of a guy that was dealing with something in terms of body. So this isn't going to help.

"And i are going to break down the off season for the atlanta hawks and the los angeles clippers after both teams fell short in the conference finals. And you'll see the most notable item starting off with the clippers heading into the summers the free agency of kawhi leonard hoop sides number one. All roll ranked free agent in issues class and the clippers. They had a really unbelievable off-season especially compared to the meltdown. They had in twenty twenty think that they learned a lot this year. Especially under tight lou. I think they're definitely Figured out a lot of things and it should feel good about heading into next season. And especially if you're quiet. If if he had any doubts about whether this is was the right move if he should remain there for the future. I think a lot of those doubts really cool down so as we know. He is eligible to be free agent. He's got that player option. I wrote about the clippers last week as soon as they got eliminated at talked about him and several other things and was leonard. I he's got his player option. And if others. I don't think he's gonna leave. But i'll just touch on that really quick about what that could be if he were to walk dallas in yorker the only playoff teams. That could get to max cap space for him. So i don't know if those are injured Places that are particularly of interest to him maybe doused because they have lucado no but those are really the only two recent playoff things that could get to. Max cavs face. There is miami but They don't deny it to get the max cap space. They're route to getting. I would have to beat through trade so it would have to be kind of a situation where qui- tells the clippers. Hey you know what. I don't wanna be here. I'm gonna believe but maybe you want. I'm willing to go to miami. Free trade me there. He he can say this about with some other teams. Then miami would have to opt in dragic guatemala and then send picks and hero and whatever they can to make it work that would be basically the situation so i touched on that a little more were leonard if you really want to do an opt in trade. I think he has more options. That way but i don't think that's going to happen. My guess is that he will end up staying with the clippers. And i think the bigger question is what kind of con- contractual pathway.

"Promos better than fox stores to start your morning brought to you by ram trucks built to serve. We are talking kawhi leonard whether he chooses to or not coin ten off out of his contract this season. You know who those arrested the league. According to kevin o'connor at the ringer the dallas mavericks in the miami heat both plant make hard push for a although signs still point. I'm staying with the clippers. We've seen in the past coin more than willing to change locations nick. Wh what did say about. Why leonard if he leaves the clippers after just two seasons. He wants to win a championship more than he wants to play at home. I mean i don't. I wouldn't judge them for it. They going to dallas is a better option from a basketball standpoint than staying with the clippers. The clippers have no flexibility cap wise. They have no draft picks to trade after this year because of what they did to acquire. Paul george now with the clippers had going for him is maybe the best coach basketball and the mavs obviously have gone through some front office and head coaching turnover. This offseason so there is that aspect of it that i think you would have to wait but luke is one of the three best. Players in basketball are lebron katie and luca. We can argue about the order later but that your top three shortly after that on the list comes why then there's another group then there's another group and that group as paul george in it so if you have an opportunity to team up with a guy who's better than the guy you're currently teaming up with for an organization that has a far better history than the one you currently play for. That has more flexibility to improve the roster in the years to come. That's at least something you've got to consider. And as far as a fit standpoint brandon there is. I understand the bowl's always in lucas hands. But the one thing why doesn't do at an a level or above on the basketball court is playmate. He's an a plus defender when he's healthy. He's an a plus shotmaker when he's healthy he can do all the so. Local can handle the ball handling paul. George guay kind of skill set wise and and the last point i'll make on this is i know kevin o'connor wrote all signs point to quite staying. I see no signs. I see no signs pointing to him. Leaving see no signs pointing to him. Staying see glide is a black box. We know nothing about him except for that he bought a house. Rich people buy houses right right. Okay so i. I figure trump possibility brandon. All right look earlier. We talked about this. And i didn't want to entertain it. Entertain it just for a little bit the own. This dallas thing does make sense nick. Only if why linnart believes his body can't hold up right like if you're the number one guy the that low. That's a lot right. And you gotta you gotta team where you're like man. We're you know we're up against the cat. We don't have a lot of assets in a draft. So it's all going to be on me but i know my knee or my knees or whatever i like. I can't do it for eighty something games. I can't i can't lead us to you. Know to be a champion. Then that's when you entertain that if a team can't bring in someone that can carry the way for you when you're not there but i just don't see this happening. Yes that matters nick. It matters when after all the things that you've done and then you go back home. You're comfortable you're in control and you can compete and content. Yeah buying a seventeen million dollar home matter. You come in and lee your boy but eventually become a man and you start making making those types of decisions as far as like you know what it ain't all about ball i want it all and then that he's in place right now where he can have it. All and i say there's five time all star wiles two-term nba ten seven seven-time all defense and he goes on and on on the last thing on her two thousand nine in high school. He was mr california. There's nothing left for this man to do. Why would you leave. Wow well i think he wants another championship. I think if you play through injury and you're already rich why are you doing it because it's fun. Yeah probably but. I think he has a drive to be a champion again. So here's the thing. Nick what if the answer is actually like. I get to stay but i make the team better by moving paul george. This is what kevin o'connor wrote if we could put up the quote panel catanha so nick. I think this is a solid answer was so few avenues to make significant move some executives wonder. What if leonard wants the clippers dump george in order for him to resign long-term hacking play. This one makes sense to me. Because i see other teams. We'll be better next year. We know that brooklyn's going to be healthy. We know that the lakers are going to be healthy. Okay the clippers are gonna lose reggie jackson. So i don't and they're stuck with these big contracts. We're trying to figure out. Like you can move lou contract. You might have to say like. Oh the only emergency lever to pull is to ship. Paul george out and try to get a new person in here so we play a little bit of different basketball so i think that's interesting. I'm going to do what i always do. In these things. Come up which is turned the generic nouns into proper nouns. Who we train bowl. George port like portland's not trading dame for him that makes no sense for portland. Portland is ultimately going to trade dame. Because they are doing. A total rebuilt reboot not because they want to stay in the tier there in your trading ben simmons for does that all of a sudden. What ails the clippers like. I don't think it's hard to find raid. That really works brandon. No you're leonard the to knock on you was low management and you're not a leader. You stepped into both of those things this year. You go to paul jordan. Say breath what you just did. When i went down. I need to do that next year. They don't need to do anything. If if paul george steps up and do what he did this past playoffs they'll be fine on..

"Video. I didn't see it while it's weird and wonderful confuses me too. What a knife for trae turner trae. Turner turned twenty eight yesterday. Had any celebrate with his record tying third career scifo. I just went out for drinks when i turned twenty. Eight amazing night for trae did make your list wild. What else you got morals day in baseball. Everyone knows what bobby baena day do. The weirdest contract and all professional sports today is the day. That bobby baena gets one way. One nine million dollars. Direct deposit into was bankamerica account. He looks up and says today's the day on like we're going out to dinner. He gets this amount of money till twenty five. So congratulations by bennie. It's always a great day around the baena household that the weird wonderful from the now throwback all right. Let's get back to the clippers from last night. The off season officially upon them after getting bounce. Last night paul. George knows how it could have been avoided first things first on a thursday morning. I see beverley beck. Here clipper sons and for the clippers. It's been one heck of a ride came back from down to to. The mavs came back from down to the jazz. Almost came back from down to phoenix last night. Didn't quite make it. Paul george to carry the team. Once go i went down was asked what could have been if the claw didn't get hurt. Take a listen issues different. Talk about best players. You know issues away from you to the next round. So justly it's it's what if this tremendous we just. We didn't do enough doing twin. Threes go hall antoine walker joining us now one good morning. Is paul george right that the clippers would have made the finals. If i didn't get hurt this is the problem. That people have with paul george and everybody. Has you know question a question. Mark and his name is because of comments like this instead of saying at complement. His teammates on the run today made over the last right seven against i was put together. A great series gets failings when they came back to. Oh two and the first two rounds and paul. George was i mean. Come on let it was. So it's no guarantee that she was going to beat the phoenix suns and the phoenix. Says the first two games without chris. Paul so as no excuse for you to to lose the series. And that's what everybody looks at at. Paul george is not necessarily a suiciders ease is always the all star. But he's not a superstar because you feel like you'll make it an excuse when he could have got it done You think about game to emits two free does he makes free throws you may be looking at a different series. I'll see you know and gain five. You know he played terrific and we wanna command confident. Give flowers for but it was multiple times to see where this series could've went the other way without kawhi anthrax of course probably could've went kimberly with nikolai. That's obviously you talking about the top five guy and koalas plan great basketball on the playoffs. But edry's off by the game. I think his son injuries that we look at that. You'd be like while you can kind of blame. The last for sometimes the hamstrings and and those type of things we kind of blaming guys not being safe but that's a legitimate injuries. That happen throughout play out. What got could mess his the nose. Day is not going but this is the reason why people question paul george. He doesn't stand up and make yourself seem accountable for these type of moments like this. They were good enough to win this series without while leonard. Now let they win the finals. That's another day. But they could win the sues without and so i don't necessarily agree with him added. He got the series done because they started out series. You know oh to wick wind lineup. So it remains to be seen. So i think that once you got to give the sons their flowers and understand that you know you. You beat a team that was better than you and they got it done right to an ron's point. They were download to in the first round with kawhi down to the second round with quiet. In the third round. Without quite they were download to even though phoenix. Didn't have chris paul. Now are the clippers. Have better team with quiet. Leonard obviously could that change this series obviously but rinse repeat that commentary for nearly any team in the playoffs so this year there are a lot of what if surrounding injuries in these playoffs and antoine nailed it. Which is. I'm not here to bang on paul george. Because he was great in game five and he has carried this team post kawais injury but he wasn't very good in the game last night and he wasn't very good after the game last night and the fact of the matter is even without kawhi leonard. The clippers had every opportunity to win. Game two and paul. George miss those free throws and i know we look at the value. As a great play by phoenix. It's also a massive defensive. Gaffe by the clippers. You got less than a second left boogie cousins in the game book. Boogie cousins is shading the wrong side. He's just giving. He's only there to prevent the lob and he's angled the wrong way and then enganed four. You had twelve field goal attempts in the fourth quarter to tie or take the lead and you went over twelve. Hey you lost to the scored eighty four points in the game. No team all year regular season or postseason lost a game where their opponent scored eighty four or fewer except for that game so you had plenty of opportunities. but wilde's. I actually think the clippers should look to if they're trying to say what happened and they should feel mostly good about how this playoff run went. Compared to last year they should. We looked at these deficits as like a badge of honor because they overcame them. But there's a cost to everything and because you were down to the mavs coli only as so many bullets in the chamber because he does have something wrong with his lower body physically. He used a lot of them in that epic game six against luca and a few more in game seven and then in that series i mean guavas playing forty plus minutes in six of the seven games. That's not what he does it. Certainly not what. He doesn't around one. So it's not shocking. That the injury bug bidermann round to his history is he has to be really well managed. So yes they would have been better without with qui- but they also might have had. Why if they had played better earlier when he was still there. If that makes sense and it could won the series john. Paul george makes a few more plays in games two and four. That's totally fair. And you were early on this or you were like. I.

"The upper hand on their opponent and he's finals. Mvp in twenty nineteen. He got his with the spurs earlier. But what could have been for a couple of these other playoff runs. It seems like you know. The news is slightly changed. From this morning we were podcasting too. Yeah he's out for game five it's an indefinite period of time. Now it's now. It's you know from an acl and that just makes it seem like a longer term injury and it just sucks that one of these great players obviously and a great team that was hitting its stride considering all the injuries across a leak that we talked about this morning and like lebron is referring to which could be right about Yeah just just really takes the wind out of the sales. Because it's different than chris paul. Because chris paul he's not injured. He's coming back at some point. And hopefully if this series is shorter now between the clippers and jazz. That doesn't bode well for his chances to be back for game one right. It is different there anyways. Let's get to the answer of this show. I wanna ask. Do the clippers have any chance to win a title. If quiet leonard is done for the rest of the postseason no no not really not really. It's tough to see how they could go on and win from here. They're still georgia. There's still got some good players on that team that but I really can't see them getting past you. Know the jazz for one and then and then also getting possesions sons and then getting past you know brooklyn. Let's say in the eastern conference. It just seems to be a hill to climb for them right now. So pathetically saw this on twitter thought. It was an interesting question. Let's pretend tasks right. He should be back hopefully for game one game two. I've talking about chris paul. But let's he for whatever reason isn't who has a better chance without their star player to go to the finals. Let's say is the sons without chris. Paul very unlikely because he should be back or would it. Be the clippers without kawhi leonard. Still having paul george a good team. The sons of course booker who's in the mix for all nba teams all star team and stuff like that. But i don't know i. I was like immediately. I thought sons. And then i caught myself. I don't think it's that automatic. I mean they're both put in a horrible position because those players are important important to their teams trade. You have an answer c. You mulling it back and forth there. I think it just means the jazz are clear favourite. Those well as and kawhi leonard is out because i mean yeah you would ya paper wise looking at it. I think i would choose the sons as more viable from a talent standpoint. also it's their first time in the playoffs for a decade and the big The big difference for them being first time playoff team was that they would have chris. Paul you know as a veteran leader so that's an impossible task for them to overcome. Meanwhile kawhi leonard. I think has been the difference for the clippers and when he starts playing well obviously their team starts playing well. That's why he's been a finals. Mvp in two different finals. That's a huge loss. Meanwhile the jazz. Yeah they're missing. Mike conley but as long as donovan. Mitchell is able to go at least. They've got their top two guys which is not what you can say. Forget two teams in the western conference. Yeah no it's insane okay. So let's let's us sorry. Answer this question here which. Mba would you like be taken to the next level. I've talked about this before for the past. I don't know what are we up to ten or eleven years. But i would love to see the concept of nba teams nba players using the backboard as that sneaky. Sixth offensive player out. There used those angles and sometimes we see it. I was confused whether dwell bead was trying to throw a pass to ben simmons who is being fronted the other night off the backboard. Some players have actually pull this off. Of course you have incredible touch that things get a rocket off there but just this concept. Will we ever get to this weird level or these guys are so good that using and throwing things off the glass to go over the defense when you're fronted to like from the top. Throw it in the glass and it drops. I'm we're getting. We're slowly seeing it creeps in every once in a while. But will it ever go there. That's my crazy concept that in the nba shoes where they glow and catch fire. When somebody hits five or six threes katie's kicks would have been neon green. Whatever internee unread or whatever. Those are my two things. I've been talking about for a decade. So i'll keep it keep it their day true. I'll drop in one other thing. We have talked about his jump balls. I despise jump balls. I just can't stand it. I just find myself watching the referee seeing which side is gonna throw it to right because he can never throw it straight up. It's a he can take. As long as honest. Gupo takes the free throw line to try and get it right and never go straight up. We've talked about maybe bringing out a little cannon before to shoot straight up in between the two jumpers But it's a little cumbersome scan take forever. we talked about mark. Cuban made a comment about artificial intelligence in tim. Kato's article on the athletic. If there's artificial intelligence in the nba. i'm sure we can figure out a way to retract the floor. Every time to jumpers are there and the ball shoots straight out of the floor. There's a lot of things happening underneath a hundred underneath the floor. Whatever macaques they going under there. I mean i don't think you could do it everywhere on the floor you don't you couldn't just couldn't just zip around but in the middle of the floor why not. Why can't the floor just retracting all thirty nba arenas in a bowl just shoots straight up. What set bsa and drop it from the rafters new ball. Let's watch pandemonium happened there for a second. It's like i don't know it. Sounds like the xfl or something like that bad. Not bad trade. You have an answer for this. Yeah i got three things. That i liked that i liked that have or i would like to see kind of permeate. Normal life. The jersey swap. I liked it. That's taking office a thing..

"He didn't completely Yes he he did not play well in two games to waters off two games. They've been great. I'm not. I'm david not the not the much better team. They bet yeah one could say that all of that. You have your kids being than vp. And they destroyed. I mean i'm just saying that it wasn't the back team. It wasn't like shooting a no not to the city team but definitely nardo entity. Like if you go up should you should be able to close it out. You should be. What was it only vice part in that. I don't think so. I mean it's not like what he did. The point being that he has performed really well even in the regular season he's played enough games and evidence keeps saying lord madison. Es played enough games that he's better as many games as probably like was on. Like i don't know like guy. I think he's on sixty two games. Not guy i think. That's that's as games but you know it's just people just think that i won't understand this because i understand this about duncan like when people under appreciate them. Duncan i get vied than that appreciated because he is offensively not in your face you know like he will get his fifteen granado fifty nine art i get but his real power on the defense like he's just you know he's he's gonna rudy gobert. Just be locked down on the paint And then you're in that you you know you you combined with a twenty fifteen officiant burundi. Fifteen as a phenomenal player for you. So if i understand why. People don't get breath. I don't get it because offensively so good. And so like he's like he the numbers talk about when you see him play like shit like you're scared that he has the baden is going to like destroy his done. Clutch moments like like the way he destroyed with hockey But still people under is i just. I won't understand that better so let me ask you this question. Because you get you give island has seven in your know lebron but you get him and put him below. Lebron who did not even enough games. No you did not ask but running so my point is like so. That is something that you underrated him for..

"Monica will. joe burrow. Take the bengals to the playoffs. And twenty twenty one charlie. My heart wants to say yes. But i think the playoffs just a little bit too high of a bar. This is the team that won four games last year now. He was tremendous when he was on the floor and healthy. I do think that he returns to form. And hopefully he's had a great season rehabbing. That knee will the bengals be improved. Yes will they get to the playoffs. I don't think so jeff saturday. Also here jack will jordan love. Oh we're going to freddy okay. We'll jordan love the packers starter in two thousand twenty wine in the world that you know maybe twenty twenty two their rogers. Aaron rodgers will be the starting quarterback for his final year in green bay without football team but the quote the quote. Dale hughley love quarterback. Bishop packers you know. He's got to wait until two thousand twenty two for that to happen to take over that organization all right and speaking of the packers the reigning. Mvp aaron rodgers seems to be stress free despite the speculation surrounding absence at mini camp last week. Here's rogers on having some downtime. Quiet about were you just kinda go through your process on your own quietly and You know that's all you can ask for as an older player in the league and someone who's been around for a long time and just enjoys that time to yourself just relaxed and not be bothered and not have any obligations or anything going on you know. I think that's what it's been about. It's been really enjoying my time. And spending their where. I wanna spend it and not feel like apple go anywhere not having any responsibilities but still be in another player all right. The man is straight chilling. No stress now. let's welcome in former champ. Jeff saturday who also played with rogers in green bay man. Monica are rodgers and the packers done. It doesn't seem like there's any issue on rogers end. Listen this is done for me. I got to break up songs that were beautiful songs. But that are relevant to the everything you own in a box to the left. Okay and then. I'm serving you some maxwell pretty wings. Let those pretty wings lap around set you free all remember that song. It was so pretty but it was actually a breakup song to me. I don't know why people think. Aaron rodgers is playing around. We were all sort of taken aback. When levy on bell held out when he was with the pittsburgh steelers particularly at the running back position. We know how important quarterbacks are in this league and if anybody has sort of the cash to be able to pull this off both financially and the credit terms of his game. Aaron rodgers is one of those guys and so for me. This is a done deal. I think that he has done. I think he is setting a precedent Moving forward an era of flare empowerment. I don't think that there's any coming back from this. And the little shots flying in the media are certainly not helping men the men the won't these new marriage counseling where they can go and be with the and say. What do you like about her. What do you like about him well. He has a nice following boys. She does a great job making sure managing how whatever they gotta do. They've gotta find some kind of marriage. Counseling i still believe. Aaron rodgers is done with the organization in terms of the general manager and mark. Murphy the president. They have not done themselves. Any favors why are you bringing up. All the late ted thompson told me that this aaron rodgers the complicated fella. That's not the right way to start. Marriage counseling between the green bay. Packers and aaron rodgers by friendly. Aaron rodgers knows that even if he gets traded somewhere else he's not gonna have any better for one more year in green bay then he has football team. That was top. Five in offense. Last year played the nfc championship game on their home. Field and aaron rodgers did not have a couple of interceptions. We could be talking about this new. I was in the super bowl against the kansas city chiefs. I think the poll of the teammates and the poll of the people that represented the packers. Meaning the fans. He's talked about that. How many times have aaron rodgers that it's not about the organization it's about treating people fairly out. Don't think he wants to leave those guys by money. He doesn't care about brian. Goon coz mark murphy. He really doesn't care about but the do that. He's gone to battle with time and time again he wants to make sure if i'm gonna. I'm gonna make a leap with one year for you guys and we win a championship. Then i can just go off in sunset and be done with it and move on to my next life. Gifford agri with that i think when you look at what the packers have done to aaron rodgers. I think relationship is poison between he and mark murphy. 'cause the whole organization from the front office i do think though when you bracket down into the coaches and the players. That's really where his loyalty lies. And i think for a guy who talks about how stand up people should be philosophically. This is what we have to go and be about. And i think ultimately that loyalty i mean you saw all of his receivers held out for the otc didn't show up for the ota's even when jordan love was there until it was required mandatory minicamp right so when when you look at what people have done. The team has kind of rallied around air. And so i think from his perspective once you get to the season but that's what it's gonna require getting too when you're playing meaningful games. I think that's ultimately when he gets in because he realizes if he plays even close to what he did last year they have a real shot at getting to the super bowl last year. I think was david backyard. Honestly the starting left. Who was injured. Had he been there. I think you might have a different a different Score for the tampa bay game so when you look at this and how close they are. Nfc championship game the last two years. This team is right on the cusp to go start again especially once the season started. There's no way aaron goes in. it's not going to be a. Tom brady situation where he can bring guys with them. All of that is long past. So as i'm looking at this. I would say this is still the best opportunity to prove not only to the packers the entire league. How good you are. And there's nothing better than than publicly embarrassing your ex by going out all time high rise. Hey a super bowl. Got you to win still. Don't wanna play for you. I'm done with the packers in this organization. That's going to say goodbye. I think that rubs more salt in the wound then just holding out not think. He's too competitive. You think those competitive juices flow. You want to be there. And you're getting older irrespective. How well you're playing you know. There's a clock on that as well. I think the nature makes him jump in. I get you on the competitive nature. But i kind of feel like going and playing and being successful. This team is not how you stick it to them like. That's just not me and we've heard so many times and of course you know the guys say we're not getting into another dues pockets when it comes to contract negotiation so on and so forth ten me. He's already coming off of an mvp year and a or divisional championship being so close. He already has shown them what he's capable of. I think if he comes back this year to me. That's like okay like it. Wasn't that bad and at this point in terms of all of the fuss that he's made. I just don't see how you walk this back. If you're him he's going to be an intimate commodity and so you'll have options especially with the way that guys are taking care of their bodies like i don't. I'm less concerned about the overall age. And i think. He's more focused on really stigma to this organization and whether he goes on the super bowl and then leave to me. That's not sticking to the organization because green bay will be like well. We got championship. Thank you see you later that that to me. That doesn't equate. Why would you do all of this if you still are going to come back and play because this is your best chance for civil clearly to me. He's willing to bet on himself and he's gonna bet them so the green bay packers because at the perfect way to sticking to organization where you go out there you win a championship to jeff saturday's point and then you say okay. Good luck without me. I'm taking the car. I'm not taking the kids. But i'm gonna be okay. Good luck with that. Because we don't know jordan laws the unknown. I'm a big believer. Jeff knows me fear. The known lead the unknown alone. I know the known an aaron rodgers. Have you the green bay packers. You know the known as well if you don't know the known by now than the unknown is gonna fry to death. When aaron rodgers leaves at the next season i think it will speak volumes. Not only for aaron rodgers fan base of green bay that he's willing to and i think that that persona and that way people view him from his fans and his teammates is important to him right. And when you think about he's already made it clear he doesn't like the front office. He's made that very the kidney main interview right people. You're where he is but ultimately he wants to show his guys. Hey man i'm with you. i'm with you..

"kawhi" Discussed on First Take

"We're finally getting to see monica echo. Everything you said in the word that came to mind. When i heard about this snake bit because i remember something like this happening. A guy named patrick ewing to new york knicks not to the level of course of dealing with colon nineteen but how many times patrick ewing snake bit throughout his whole career who ran into the detroit pistons early then the chicago bulls then when he finally had that team with alan houston and the troll spree. Ball marcus camby. He breaks his ankle a playoff series. They wound up losing it. Five games for the san antonio spurs in strike shortened season. We don't have. Patrick ewing would have helped the knicks manip- victory but the chance would have been a lot better the healthy patrick ewing. That's what reminds me of this situation. Would come through chris paul and you're exactly right. I'm more concerned about the person being healthy and people around him being healthy more than anything else but for the first time ever in his career he had the squad a mixture youth and also experience all of that and chris. Paul and devon booker. The andre a coach with mining williams. They were the healthiest team of anybody. Left standing in the nba playoffs. And now you have this situation creeping with a guy that not only is your leader but he was one hell of a damned closer in the series against the denver nuggets when they needed somebody to go. Get it chris. Able to go get the devon booker can't or campaign definitely can you can't put that kind of pressure on him but whatever this indefinite absence is going to be is going to affect the phoenix suns. Because whenever he gets back remember he can't practice with the team. He can't be around the team at all. So whatever continuity chemistry you've been able to develop outside of games. That's going to be less in a little bit. I can't remember more snake bit snake bit. Nba player since. Patrick ewing and that guy's become chris paul so monica you're exactly right in terms of the person i but we live on planet earth. This really affects the phoenix suns on the basketball court. How they deal with that and when he comes back or who knows. That's going to be interesting. And i'm looking to see how they're gonna deal with this with this setback with a team. That was looking very very strong to get to the nba finals and represents the west and the nba finals. And that's my next question because he is out indefinitely but should he be out for the following series. How far can the sons go monica. Charlie do we have to go there. Do we have to think about that. I mean we have to evacuate either the teams. I've yeah if either of the teams that they're waiting on whether it'd be the clippers or the jazz now. Obviously we also need to see how serious this kawhi. Leonard knee injuries. But you know they automatically lose an edge with our correspondent. I believe in the finals. But i don't think that they get out of the finals without chris. Paul it's not just the exit owes in the basketball part of it right. It is the leader. It is the moment it is in the fourth quarter through both of the series that we've watched this team come through. He's the one that shows up and goes four. Four four or whatever. The case may be in the biggest moments of the basketball game. Mckelway cameron payne devon booker. The whole gang they have made tremendous strides right but this will be their first finals opportunity as well right and so there is. I don't know that there's enough words to express the difference. That chris paul makes because on the flip side. If it is the clippers you got a guy who literally if he's able to get back. That's been there done that right and if it is the jazz we're talking about a squad that has been in the top efficiency in the league on both sides of the ball all season long and quite honestly while i've loved the andres and deondraye aden's glow up. I should say in the playoffs up against rudy. Go bare right now. The jazz missed that mike. Conley probably is kind of the same scenario. But i don't like the to get out of the finals. If they don't have chris politics gets to that. I don't think this team the nba finals. I'm gonna go out and say right there because that's how important chris. Paul's minute is basketball team. And you mentioned my colleagues where you mentioned that. Monica because seth greenberg Nba basketball analyst. He and i were talking about this before we came on the air today and he said mike conley chris. Paul assorted the same thing because look how much they have to have. One guy facilitate everything name down. Image with the utah jazz because my colleague was so good to relieving that pressure. Now you're gonna have to ask devon booker to do the same thing where that takes away his effectiveness. Because chris paul was so good. Makes the guys got the ball on time where that relieves a lot of stress on a book where you had to do everything now devon book and they'll have to be that kind of steph curry combo guard to initiate the offense at times and we've seen how that has not worked with down of a mitchell. Mike conley being out in the last two games. They improve clippers defense in this series. Now you may have that devon booker to do the same thing campaign the backup point guard our just fifteen minutes off the bench. You got the increase the twenty nine thirty minutes. Who say he's going to be that much more effective. That's how many other people outside of the basketball court it comes to help. We're going to be compromised. Because chris paul was so central to a phoenix was able to do if he's out for an indefinite amount of time. And then you got to ratchet back up again to get this all star again. That's really retarded. The progress that they've been able to make this point when you the phoenix suns. It'll be extremely extremely unfortunate. So again for chris paul keeping our fingers crossed. He will be able to play soon. Get out of that in nineteen protocol. What on a positive note chris. Paul has become these second guard to make all nba sixteen season or later later joining the great kobe bryant in speaking of great. Let's take a look at what happened last night. You can't short for one night and get one game. I believe he can't believe he.
