"Remember I remember. Yeah. I mean it was a real battle between them and sportscenter wasn't like everyone in the world was on Sports Center it was like a battle is CNN tonight right? I I don't remember that one I remember it. So clearly though because me and my Buddy Jorge would always be fighting. He wanted to watch sports center and. I wanted to watch CNN and then you always knew to turn on headline news twenty-seven and fifty seven after but then when it will loop around and I would miss my score of the Mountain West Game I. Wasn't necessarily the mountain West back then but yes oh, but the score phones were there but that's a whole other show. The reality is, is that I didn't like sports back in the day because all they focused on were home runs. If it was a baseball game, Dinger Dinger Dinger chicks dig the long ball dinner saying you're out now obviously, things have changed in twenty plus years we can lament espn in different ways or not. That's the choice. I think they do a lot of good things. Lot of things I don't like but. It feels like to me in the NBA if all we count is scoring, then aren't we doing like who's going to? You know back in the day who's going to post your is someone in there you know Dominique Wilkins is the good player but this other guy. Cindy moncrieff except in truth Bernard Kanger. MONCRIEFF spider but they don't have these sportscenter highlights. Defense. Is Half the game? You think about Jordan and Pippen. which what made them? Six time champions was defense. Giorno only scored a point or two more than Dominique or whatever. So why would they win? So many titles Jordan was a multiple time. All defensive player paper might be the best wing defender in the history of the NBA Rodman was the best. Low Post but not centered defender. Oh. Is it a coincidence? Titles. But now you look at Golden State you would make the case. In that championship run to a lot of good defense air that wasn't really discussed. You know as much I would make the case staff not as good defensively. But Klay Thompson very good draymond. Very good. And as a guy with a long reach Katie was in his way not Wanna one is much so. WHO's the best young defender and if all we're talking about and I'm going to pose it to you and you're going to have to answer for the media. It's on you. How do we make it where it's not just about sportscenter highlights when it comes to WHO's good at a young age first off Fred Hickman was the guy from. There was a do with blonde hair the had a lisp. I swear to God. He had four names like James Earl Smith. Jones advantage. That's it. Van House. I think it is. It's almost like we don't appreciate how good a player is on defense until later on in their career it's only until later on in your career ego that guy's a really good defender I know. Leonard One of his best attributes is man Kawhi Leonard is an all around great player but nobody was talking about Kawhi Leonard and just his defense early on it was I actually do Joe's I rarely disagree with you on sports matters a gambling. We don't ever disagree because you own disagree with me but I'M GONNA to disagree with you on this. I. Was a big. Tell me from wrong here. I was a big spurs fan big at the time. And what I saw was. Everyone thought in that second year. Remember if I'm cracked second year. They lost to Miami and that was when there was the amazing shot at the end of the game. They already were bringing the trophy out to the Spurs in Game Six, right the game odds were ninety five percent. Spurs would win quietly they were up I. Think Five Free Throw to go missed. It was about twenty eight seconds and it went the way it went. Third Year they won it the big Lameta second and third year of was he needs to shoot more. He needs to take more initiative, but he was the lockdown defender to the point he locked down Lebron in both those series. Yeah. But my my point is when you're talking about, why don't we consider defense and we're talking about all around great players I mean. Could play defense early on, but he was never in the discussion of all. Well, you know maybe he's one of the all around great players I think for the media it's at this. Point though doesn't the fact he was such a good defender and it was like, oh, he's a good. Spare. And and they just label him as that they label them is at and they move forward. If you look at some of these players, you talk about a tray trae young Luca, these guys that don't play good defense. It's easier for us to just look at point totals and averages and just say, Oh, well, that guy's a really good young player than it is. To factor in and actually do the digging go put on defense. He does this like James. Harden. James Harden I. WanNa say led the League in steals if I'm not mistaken that never gets talked about never gets talked about James Harden and his high steel count per game now, I think on the steelers here's the thing about hard and this is a Bill Simmons theory. Generally that Youtube and the ability for someone who's motivated to put together kind of a hit video of all your ole type. You know let them go like a bullfighter type defensive possessions has shame people into not being so hands off. No Pun intended. Because they don't want to be made a fool of or be ridiculed. But Hardened Simmons believe actually started playing better defense because he was so embarrassed by some of the videos that were going around. I do I do think though you might have a stat. Flipped hardened in the bubble I think leads were steals, but he hasn't for a season but but I think he's defense has gotten better and I could be wrong about that. You might look into and I'll I'll double check that but I want to say that he had a high steel per game average one year. But again that that just doesn't get talked about all we talk about is you know he travels on every play and then he has a great step back and he was bad on d. but everyone kind of shrugged at it and the last concept I'll say is this what I'm going to focus more on do my little piece of this. Is this concept. Get a stop get a bucket. There are so many times in an NBA game that if you can get a stop and get a bucket you win, and if he can't you lose and there's two pieces of that and go back to the final Michael Jordan game with the Bulls the famous play where he goes in stress Malone well, he actually got a bucket gotta stop and got a final bucket. But if you don't get that stop, they don't win that game and who knows if they win the title and ultimately. This is why I think it's so wrong. For the supposed smart people to dismiss chips rings banners however, you want to say it. Because in the end. Defensive Teams in the NBA win even though it's not understood that defense is such a big part of why they win by the casual fan and that's you look at guys and say Hey Luka had this many points and you might think, oh, he's this good. But you know why does Luke tenny beat so much you know I'm not saying Luke Com saying example of this big score whoever that is, why does he get beat so much? Who maybe it's defense, and if we are not looking at how far you advance in the playoffs or looking at championships than in a way that's the only way we're ever GonNa pay attention to defense 'cause it leaves the championships. So think about the teams. Or. The players that have underperformed in the playoffs in the NBA usually they're going to be all offense no defense and does all. The indictment of that are the losses and if we act like the PR is all that matters. Then we're not giving credit to one of the yields, the result of defense, which is winning where you.

Building Power Among Youth
"Thank you for joining me today? How are you doing? Great good good, so tell me about. What is all girls? Everything ultimate frisbee about. Why do you guys do? We are a leadership program and we have been brought together through ultimate Frisbee. That's how we use the together. We play Frisbee there, but we also learned there. Yeah, age up is not only really about like social justice. Education I feel like the people who work for Asia or that are in the age of community invest in the young people of Color in the key in the South Seattle community, and is really rooted around ultimate Frisbee, but we're also all have like a connected passion for social justice, wanting to make a change. In providing for our community, ultimate Frisbee, amusing to be honest with you, you know when I hear ultimate Frisbee. I don't think social justice education. A matter of fact with a lot of sports I don't think social justice says a case. I know that there's athletes who will take a stand and say something, but you know I don't i. don't naturally think ultimate Frisbee and social justice education. So how do those two combine for a job? Well I think when you think of most forts you're not. That's social justice as narrow really the first thing that comes to mind I'm pretty sure like no one ever combines like anything of the sorts of sports. But with ultimate Frisbee, since it's kind of a new sport, it's kind of like there's room to test around in like. Build new kind of community I think and that's kind of what happened the South End. There is like coaches all around the south Seattle that kind of came together to build. What age of is like Sam? Terry and Hannah Kawhi at least uneven. It came from it being such a tight knit community with those people with those players that they. They felt safe to talk about those types of topics like racism sexism, and so it started with a small group of people I think it was like tennis people and they had their like initial program of coming together and talking about social justice, and it kind of evolved into something more where everybody was willing to learn and grow together also play Frisbee together. Yeah, right? Hey, we're we're. We're here to have fun and play Frisbee than these other bigger issues that. Are Impacting us, or we care about if I'm understanding you correctly and you guys. The folks who started this felt comfortable enough with each other to be able to have this dialogue. And how how long ago when did this start? Two thousand nine at. It's even late, two, thousand, nine or early twenty ten, because we're GONNA have our ten year like Oh, yeah, two thousand nine. Yeah, doesn't you about the have your ten year anniversary? Okay? Amy was mentioning his early before we started recording that. There's there's different program elements that you guys have within eight up. What are those programs in? Can you describe them a little bit for me? We have a girls program that happens. December January, and then right after that ends the boys, program starts because we use Jefferson, community center. And will have an office upstairs, and then we use the big room in the middle, so we have to have the different programs right after each other, so then like we don't meet other programs different from you. Have your girls programming your voice program other than the gender? What's the difference in having to rather than having a combined group? I think the only difference is the ideas that we would come up with so last year. I was a girls program intern. That program was mostly about mental health for. That whole program year. And then. My other intern. Together Dion we came up with a different workshop at the end. So you have maybe different focuses. Do they come up naturally from what the group is asking for kind of what they're all talking about or do you guys have a curriculum for lack of a better word were year directing? You know what each group is is focusing during that timeframe. It used to be like. Every week was a different topic like went to his into sexism, but then we felt like one day is not enough to cover that topic. Then along the program years we would talk together and be like Oh. Should we just do one? So then? We can actually cover it, and so people can learn from. It were from now on. We're doing one topic or each year,

Canoe plants can feed the modern world
"This is Connor Lennon from UN news. The cultivation of traditional but now largely overlooked foodstuffs could help to sustain populations in the modern world according to a research technician at the breadfruit institute at Hawaii's National Tropical Botanical Garden the Stockbridge breadfruit which tastes similar to potato one of around twenty seven so called canoe plants that were brought by boats to the Hawaii archipelago in the Pacific Ocean by early Polynesian Settlers. Who arrived by sea centuries ago in modern times? It is four now to favor as a staple dish despite its nutritious versatile nature but now the breadfruit institute promoting it as a response to critical global food security issues especially for Developing Island States Donald Dickinson met research technician and Pharma No Dickinson. Who is no relation under a breadfruit tree at the National Tropical Botanical Gardens on the audit of Kawhi and began by asking him to describe what the plant looks like? Just a quick and dirty description. I believe would be easiest to Equated to a soccer ball with smaller segments and then imagine the soccer ball is green and much more textured and quite delicious and starchy. That's a breadfruit who eat suits. And how do they eat it? It's a fruit that grows on a tree. It's actually a a female flower. The tree itself sets both female and male flowers. You eat the female flowers. Which are the fruit here in Hawaii locals? Eat it not as prevalent as other island states or island nations of the Pacific because it was never a staple starch traditionally for Hawaiian people. But it was one of their canoe plants. So what do you mean by canoe plant so canoe? Plants are set of about twenty seven plants that were brought by voyaging people that were looking to settle islands so as the people of the Pacific became the people of this Pacific migrated out of Southeast Asia. They brought with them a set of utility plants for house building for Canoe building for Weaving for food. Obviously and so there are multitude of plants. Like Bradford that are multi use so for wood and food and the leaves and medicinal purposes as well?

NBA Storylines Down the Stretch
"Doris Burke is an NBA analyst for ESPN so doors the All star break is over and NBA. Games are back. We wanted to talk to you. About what surprised you so far this season. And how you see the last couple of months shaping up as we enter the homestretch before the playoffs. Let's start in the East right where there is an unequivocal number. One team in Milwaukee they have the best record in the NBA and they are destroying teams winning by an average margin of victory of more than twelve points per game now of the eleven teams that have had a double digit margin of victory over the course of a season. Eight have gone on to win it. All Doris. Is there something that stands between Milwaukee and the NBA Finals? Yeah this is a great question. So in their eight losses the one thread that is consistent throughout those are teams are averaging sixteen point nine threes and philosophically. Their priority is protect. The paint. First and foremost they are so elite. At that that we have not seen this kind of rim protection in the modern NBA. With the possible exception of Spurs team that had both Tim Duncan and David Robinson but the fact of the matter if a team gets hot and really can create shot opportunities then. I think that they can be beat. The other thing that happens is your and you saw in the All Star game. Jaanus is the first player to go twenty five and eleven back to back all star Games but he was over to note points in the fourth quarter because they did playoff teams. We'll do they set up a wall and they said somebody else is going to beat us so well. No one's really doubting the bucks at this point. I think there is still a lot of skepticism about the number two seed in the east the Toronto Raptors. I mean after losing finals. Mvp Kawhi Leonard. They were not seen as favorites coming into this year yet. They have the same record right now that they had at this point last season doors one hand the raptors have been under five hundred against winning teams but on the other they had a lot of. Are we underestimating them? While I'm definitely giving them punchers chance to get to the Eastern Conference finals and a punchers chance to come out in the past historically particularly when Demar Derozan Kyle lowry. Were on the team together. What we knew was they understood how to win in the regular season but they're always seemed to be this level of doubt in their minds when the calendar turn to April but the fact of the matter is. They changed that a year ago with championship. There is a different feel a different presents a different countenance about the entire group and yes unequivocally the record versus plus five hundred versus minus five hundred is concerning but let's remember that their top six guys including Serge Ibaka. Who's having the Best Year of his career? Kyle lowry Markelle Saul Fred Van Bleed. Norman Powell Pascal them. All six of those guys have missed at least ten games so I don't know that we have the clearest picture the other thing working in their favors they have one of the best coaches in the league. Nick nurse wears that head coaches mantle with ease. Why because he's been calling the shots for the vast majority of his career. In any number of circumstances his creative he's fearless. He's a little bit irreverent. And I'm telling you mean ah I give them a punchers chance to get to an east finals and a punchers chance to get out. Did you see this coming at all? Doors not even close and this is the question really ultimately. Do they have enough offense in what you're seeing is to me. What appears to be this grooming of Pascal? Ceac him of all right. You gotta go get your own in those minutes and a playoff circumstance where you don't care whether it's a mid range to a fall away jump shot a jump shot under duress of excellent defense. What matters is I need to put the ball in the basket right now because this game is teetering on our control or there's and we've got to have one and you're watching Pascal. Can he deliver in the postseason? He's been excellent in the regular season. I can't wait to see a play out. I think it feels right now. Like you've got the bucks in a tier of their own and then you've got the raptors celtics heat kind of swirling around each other. There was a feeling ahead of the trade deadline that the heat could vault to that number. Two spot perhaps even contend with the bucks if they really went all in and added Gala Nari. They didn't they did add Igwe Dolla. Do you think that's enough? You know the the last prism through which I saw. Andre Gonzala was a man who was battling an Achilles in the playoff series and seemed to be showing the signs of some age. But what I know. Unequivocally is this man from a basketball intellect standpoint. According to Kerr is one of the smartest in the history of the League. He has got championship. Dna He's got positional versatility on the defensive end that basketball intellect and the ability to process information quickly and to do it under the spotlight of the playoffs. He has all of that. I'm anxious to see how he changes the dynamic the Miami Heat. You know this. They're going to play hard defensively every single night. They're going to mix in one of the most effective zones we see in today's NBA and Eric's bolster is outstanding coach. So right now sitting in that fourth spot how far Jimmy Butler can take them. That'll be interesting. Those young guys. Right Duncan Robinson Tyler Hero Kendrick Nunn all those guys who have performed so well in the regular season when the calendar switches. Can you win with them? Let's see

Free Agency especially the Kawhi Leonard bit never read the Ringer Dot COM kawhi Leonard left Toronto to sign with the Los Angeles Clippers Clippers after convincing the clippers that they had to trade for another superstar Paul George Joining Menelik okay read literally any other article on the ringer and it will be about this <hes> <hes> first impression. It was a media vacuum. Yes is it not yeah. I mean everybody listening. This probably knows but there are three. There were basically three teams in play as dictated sort of by quite Leonard Preferences. He was either going to stay with the Toronto Raptors where he played for your played for your and won the title <hes> or go to one of the two Los Angeles teams where he's from Los Angeles. It was either going to be the Lakers of the clippers. The Lakers have Lebron James and recently acquired another top five player Anthony Davis and getting Co.. I would make him a super team. He had previously been linked into the clippers but their inability to get another superstar made it seem like they are you know nominally out of the running <hes> but there was no nobody was inside enough to actually get a report. There were a number of sports pseudo sports media figures that <hes> professed inside knowledge or at least <hes> or at least you know performed as if they might have inside knowledge Chris Carter most notably the notably the former former I mean the the hall of Fame N._F._l.. Receiver <hes> and you know and and made probably did have some some contact with the with Leonard Camp but I think he was mostly right as it turned out but I but I but and we and you had it was just like this sort of basketball world just hanging on these kind of sporadic tweets and and reading journalists tweets not knowing how much to trust them the answer in that case was almost across the board none <hes> and and just everybody everybody was just waiting with baited breath to to see what quite literally do it was really stunning and then of course he made his decision than all the employees of the ringer in every other sports <hes> journalistic outlet had to stretch in and get into gear and start start doing their jobs <hes> but it was you know it was everybody was caught off guard by the timing but everybody was utterly shocked by the by the results is this just because Leonard has a small a relatively small number of people around him versus your other N._B._A..

"We thought his game might have been limited, but we didn't know he went, he's the only guy who's gone into the playoffs. We know how good you are. We know how good you are. You're great. Oh, no. We didn't know how good you were right? It's almost like we forgot how good he was because he was playing like this before the injury and say that Tonio. He really was. But I'm intrigued by this finals because you have a guy going up against a super team. It's, it's Ken. Michael Jordan, take down a super team basically, by himself that's going to be interested. You also have the Kevin Durant storyline. And this is a series that there are absolutely gonna miss Kevin Durant. And he's not going to be playing in game one because historically Steph curry plays Toronto better than any team. But now they're going to put Hawaii on them without Kevin Durant on the floor, and how's that going to go for a guy that historically struggled in the NBA final, Golden State is just a different team altogether. Arden me are go sit outside for a couple of minutes. Oh, trouble. Lameta giving your clear your throat the other direction because you've been a disaster. Okay. I covered him phlegm. So we're not gonna do it. Kawhi leonard. Stu gods? Yes. Is he going if he wins the title, does he become more coveted free agent and Kevin Durant, because, oh gosh, these younger because he's younger if he beat this team to win a title. I'm not certain. He should be more coveted free agent. But he probably will become a more coveted thing. That is breathtaking to me, is what he did defensively to Jaanus. I've not seen. Nobody can slow Janas. He's literally, the only person in the world that can slow Jaanus. There's not another defender that can do it. I mean, what do you do if he wins this title Kawai, he'll have to championship rings, Kevin Durant has none? I mean Kawai Leonard is. Yeah, I guess, yeah, he'll be the prized free agent here coming up in July. What an exciting final. I am super excited for this. You're not what I can't believe Greg, Cody, not excited for what I can't believe, because, honestly, this sport is our most predictable sport. And it qualifies as a huge upset that the to beat the one and now. It's one against two from both conferences. But the part that is amazing to me, Stu gods. And is a legitimate surprise is you remember where the raptors were four games ago as they headed into overtime looking like they were blowing a game. They were going to be down three. Oh. And all of this was going to be about Jaanus. It wasn't going to be about coli Leonard. In fact, it was gonna be about honest so much that we aren't going to even notice that Jaanus was exposed if that ball bounces differently in game three. That's how quickly things change. Oh man. If you're looking at odds makers no matter who wins the championship it would seem as though they're still losing their best player considering what's favored at turns their next team, this is a fascinating final. It's that what's happened with the raptors is interesting just because they were done. They were done. They they're sitting there going into overtime Stu aunt, and he's played fifty minutes. He's hurt. He's clearly tired any takes the series from them in game three by winning and overtime where they'd gone down three like they should have gone down oath three given how they played at the end of the game. Right. We wouldn't be talking about any of this stuff. Instead Canada's going crazy. And Drake's gotta be there that's going to be a great final who's getting his Drake, annoying, everybody or just some of the people he's a great wrestling. He'll I think so. He's annoying pretty much everybody outside of his country. But are you annoyed by it? Or are you enjoying it? I'm kind of enjoying it. I liked what he's kiss gray. Be allowed to. Do that. This is bizarre on every level and thoroughly enjoyable juicy smashmouth come after him. There are a band from Oakland, they call them. Glorified mascot.

So I promised, we will not ruin any of that for you. We rule, however, ruin the game of the night for you. Life, which was the game of this round of the playoffs for sure. This was the. Game that these conference semifinal conference. Finals desperately needed yacht has and the bucks taken on coined the raptors in the critical game three fourth quarter under two and a half to go. And we are tied collider, we are tied no more raptors at ninety three ninety one lead less than fifteen seconds ago, bucks down by those two Chris Middleton, J will Wisey pulling up from there. Well, he didn't know there were three defenders around him actually thought they should have held out for a better south. Maybe call time out as well and it's not a good. Look. He was one of six from three remembers a two point game. So they have to foul, PASCAL Siachen. So he would go to the line and Siaka would he would miss the first? And so now you're going to see the second and he doesn't make them pay. They missed back-to-back foul shots. And so the box call a timeout, whether another opportunity seven seconds ago where you're gonna go. You're going to go to Chris Middleton Middleton to the basket. No. But what he's going to stay with it follow it up and tie the game. Well, yeah. When you look at all the extra minutes that were forced on the Toronto Raptors because of myth free. Throws Zack is gonna come back to haunt thanks show that were tightly go to overtime final. Seconds of the OT. Kawhi Leonard sizing up the defense three seconds, two seconds one second for the win. No good double overtime as where we're going, we're less than a in watch this play. And tell me if this is a good, call Siachen going to drive the ball act, that man at the Greek freak at Janas, and they're going to call this a block and Janas has found out of the game. Good call bad call. I think it's a bad thing was a charge not as good call. Good. We'll have. Twelve points on five of sixteen. Judy. He's, he's a watch grimacing chugging shorts. We've got an injury concern here. We'll get to that in a minute. Meanwhile the game with end you're going to see great to play here. Vying Kawai Leonard once again, he was eleven twenty five from the floor plus twelve thousand shots rafters. Three point lead less than a minute to play. It's a two point game and look at the ACA getting up on one end and goes Leonard going the other way. And it is. These and take what both these guys played over fifty minutes last night for the rafters in a game. They desperately needed and Siaka making the big play on one end Kawai on the other scored thirty six and in double OT, the raptors win. Have you ever played fifty two minutes before? Pretty sure, you know, having this homey. You know that question I'm not thinking I'm down to at the time, just play basketball. You got to be in a moment, live in a moment. And no just all when it's laid out on a Florida night defense was was probably the biggest key of the game made some huge plays with some steals and ripple as and breakaways. Yeah, he was. He was good. I think he's I think he's okay. I was a lot of minutes. But I think he's okay. Yeah, we're gonna get to the injury concern from him in a moment, but give all the credit in the.

And when and usually usually you can't avoid that one meet up that you weren't looking forward to going home hard business Cup guys in the NBA found that out one last night. And one getting ready to tonight. My favorite soap opera from the end of last season. The NBA happened in San Antonio. Because it was the most unlikely backdrop for NBA melodrama, then I think we've ever had when you look at what the Spurs have meant to basketball in the modern era with Gregg Popovich is the head coach it has been the poster. The absolute picture of a rock solid. Well, run organization that is built on the backs of humble superstars who quietly go about their business and set an example for the rest of the team. Well, we know that one little sideways last year. Kawhi Leonard some things happen with his injury this organization and the way that it was handled. A trust was fractured. And I always said that when it comes to your body is an athlete that is the greatest trust that you can have were you in the medical staff and the coaching staff of that team and what they're going to do. When all of a sudden, it is your well being online because four an organization, you were a big part of your plans, but we all end up becoming interchangeable at some point every organization is going to move on from you. They're gonna find a secession plan for you that is the entirety of your athletic life. So for Leonard that was the breaking point, and they broke up, and it was messy in. There was a trade all these different things that finally set coli Leonard. To where he is now in Toronto. And so Leonard gets to go back home. Tonight gets the checkout San Antonio. And I said I'm looking forward to that first moment if we're going to get that icy handshake that half-hearted hug between Gregg Popovich and Kawhi Leonard because I really don't know how to read the situation like in any other one of these we would have dealt with this publicly. There would have been a hashing out of these feelings. These guys would have been asked about it and comment about plenty. This Gregg Popovich and quite Leonard like they don't operate the way the rest of us operate even when it comes to beef. And so now with the prospect of quiet Leonard coming back home. Gregg Popovich, like most of us is forward on the future. Never looking back. You.

Now too late. The thought is a great. Logo. It's literally it. Is you what? Yeah, you man you paying on that because as far as own benefit because his own benefit, he make the most money if he stays there but who busy care about money because he wanted to straight from the Spurs. We could've got two hundred million dollars. So the money is not even his thing right now. If they, if he does resign, if he doesn't sign that this is a big w I just don't think this is a better team beach where we, this is a bad team and they were last year. Are you seri-? I'm very serious. This is a better team, the raptors word last year. Because again, considering winner is still up to the standard, which means that they can make out of the east.

So I do I if they reside him, it's a huge w for them even if they don't resign them, then they step back hit the rebuild. Because again, this team wasn't a team that was probably gonna win a championship anyway. A lot for them to go over to review a modo just two years after this year, Kyle Lowry last year, his deal.

"Wip what's up jeff hey how you doing good man how're you doing i honestly i i disagree with your take on i think that if you trade for kawhi leonard that you're gonna it's only way you're gonna win a championship you've gotta convince them like they did in oklahoma city for paul george what have you tried for jimmy butler what if not sooner free agency you sign klay thompson it's worth noting the lakers are apparently putting in calls to damian lillard and bradley beal trying to make moves just because it doesn't seem to be a move on the horizon that doesn't mean there's not a move out there yes i agree with that but i also think that kawhi leonard if he's healthy he's a top three player in the league and when when brett brown did that trade for zaire smith you said he's star hunting and i don't think and you heard about that report the jimmy butler wants to play with kyrie irving i don't think tyrod irving's come to philadelphia with jimmy butler yeah and jeff i appreciate the phone call i reject that premise like in the nba you can't be a top three or even a top five star if you're not your team's primary ball handler like the nfl network top one hundred don't give me anybody in the top ten held a top fifteen who isn't a quarterback all due respect to todd gurley all due respect to aaron donald it's quarterback league like in the nba it is a point guard or point forward whatever you wanna call the brian league kevin durant is an outstanding player he doesn't matter as much to his team as steph curry does even with he was with the oklahoma city thunder there'd be games were kevin durant would be lights out it didn't matter because you had russell westbrook in the nba you are defined by what your point guard or your point forward or whatever you wanna call your primary ball handler you're defined by what he does kawai leonard is not the primary ball handler he is not running an offense the way that james harden does if it's not james harden chris paul steph curry he's not that guy even damian lillard like kawhi leonard in his career has averaged two point three assists per game like i find it remarkable i saw on twitter the other day a couple of sixers fans were kicking around the idea of well should the sixers get jimmy butler and they're like jimmy butler is a ball stopper jimmy butler has averaged three and a half assists per game in his career and in each of the last three seasons never been lower than four point eight per game kawhi leonard has been two point three which is by the way worse than carmelo anthony the ultimate black hole in the nba like the way that we romanticize coli simply because he plays dot tough defense and simply because he doesn't talk i mean you ever think that maybe the reason that doesn't talk is because he just doesn't have a personality and the nba which is the ultimate star league or guys get movie deals kyrie irving guys get shoe contracts you ever think that maybe co i leonard he's just not that interesting i mean james harden might be the biggest introvert in the nba even he talks more than kawhi leonard but people love quakers he played tough defense it's a throwback to the eighties and nineties i mean first of all you don't even like you don't even like the nba in the eighties and nineties as much as you like today you'll look at the tv ratings and even then like it's i mean it's people who romanticize power running games in the nfl two quarterback sport you romanticize defense in the nba it's a point guard wing league i really don't get the whole kawhi leonard thing i'm sure he's a nice enough guy and there's a part of me there's a part of me that's really hoping this is just as group and he's just getting really bad advice from his uncle i will say that lonzo ball at some point you gotta be a man tell your dad he needs to chill the hell out leonard you need to be a man and at some point tell your uncle dude i'm not picking a team just because it's in los angeles i'm okay with him saying i.

"Or i would have said the san antonio spurs based on kawhi leonard reputation and then i kept thinking about it and i was thinking about it all yesterday i was thinking about it on on all throughout saturday of thinking about a little bit on friday and i was just trying to just go over all the different possibilities and scenarios and the more that i thought about it the more i actually lean the opposite and i actually put blame on kawhi leonard based on the spurs reputation you remember the malcolm butler bill belichick debate after the super bowl everybody seemed to come to the defense of malcolm butler everybody seemed to attack bill belichick and seemed to call him out that he didn't know what he was doing and he made a mistake and not playing malcolm butler may have cost tom brady is super bowl and the teammates are upset about it and they're all pissed off and everybody's against bill belichick and everybody's supporting malcolm butler and malcolm butler even talked about it and i took a step back and i said hold on we're now all of a sudden going to take malcolm butler's word and we're going to say that he's the guy in the right here and that he got screwed over and and and that bill belichick a an executive a coach a guy in the nfl who's the best in the business all of a sudden minutes before the biggest game of the season and one of the biggest games of his career just forgot how to coach and forgot how to manage players he just forgot all that then that seems a little far fetched to you so whenever one was attacking bill belichick and they were all citing with malcolm butler man how could do this i don't know if we'll ever know the reason why it happened but i'm not going to side with malcolm butler in a mysterious conspiracy situation unless i know for sure bella check screwed him over if i'm just going on reputations all sides with bella check in the patriots that they made the best decision for the team like they've done successfully every single year which is why they're the best organization in the nfl so if you to take that rationale and if i were to take my own rationale from the ballot check malcolm butler situation and put it in this who's got a better track record of organizational and character success in the league than san antonio who's better in the league at hand handling player personnel who's who's got more loyal players guys at still backed them constantly who still wanna come back and play who still want to be there show me more stable organization in the nba outside of the san antonio spurs and all of a sudden with this one player gregg popovich and the spurs just forgot how to manage them doesn't that also seem a little farfetched and so the more i thought about it i said i don't actually i i don't actually believe that that san antonio really didn't even wrong here i'm starting to lean towards the side of great popovich and the side of the san antonio spurs bruce bowen a former spur which is ironic we talk about a great character a guy who was known as being one of the dirtiest players in the league as we contradict ourselves here on fox sports radio bruce bowen was talking with sirius xm mba radio recently and he spoke about the situation is he out i mean this is what i tell people in san antonio when i say proves what's going on i said what has been going on have you heard twice anything oh i can't stand what's going on here in san antonio not one time.

"To convince him over a year to say there long term but the spurs for one second should not be concerned that if they trade him and if he likes to resign with the team they trade him to he gets about one eighty three million dollars according to bleacher report but if you want to go somewhere else after that it's a buck forty but why should the spurs care fees losing money he wants out of this organization so the spurs for one second should not care what kawhi leonard once they should just focus on presenting this to teens and to try to get the best available player or draft pick back for kawhi leonard and the future so we look at what could be next lakers are one team that obviously comes to mind first because that's where he wants to go as one of the destinations and they have some pieces they have draft picks they have they have ball and wouldn't that be something imagine the ball family teaming up with popovich he got lavar and pop those press conferences for popper already legendary they were just dead even better that'd be fun to see unfold and maybe then at the lakers do get kawhi leonard you eventually could also get free agency lebron james which has been rumored and then also paul george as well so lakers are one destination the celtics are another and the celtics they tried to get co i leonard in the past and now they've had the group of young players that have displayed that they are really good talent in the nba.

"In and says i think as much as media trying to say spurs and pop still ho cards like you i always love those tweets that sort off that way by the way they group everyone in the media as we all have the same opinion which is just not true they hold no cards because a co ops out next year so of wants to go to la he won't sign with anybody else in pop will get a bag of balls for a one year rental that is fax that's what sports on the score god wants says my point was just in the short term kawhi leonard doesn't have as much leverage here in controlling whereas team is next yes if he comes out and says or communicated through people can't just come out and say directly but if he communicates it through his people that he wants to go to the lakers then okay you take that for what it's worth but we've all seen some communication that he wouldn't mind going to the knicks but in the short term my point was that a monologue that the spurs should be focused on themselves if kawhi leonard does not want to come back and they cannot fix this relationship the spurs should be focused on getting the best deal possible so that means let's say the lakers are where he wants to go but a team like the kings the next the sixers or whoever presents a better option and they have the belief that maybe they could keep him then they take that risk and they make that trade and the spurs should be focused on themselves they shouldn't be sitting there and say oh well you know what we should do leonard right trade into lakers just because he wants to go there no you take what the best package is available and if a team is stupid enough to take that risk and say that we could keep him and maybe they can actually keep him because he doesn't want to stay there then that's a risk that you take we sing days before make bad trades receipt teams before that thing they could bring in a player who maybe doesn't want to go there and find a way.

"A small percentage like less than two percent but when you listen to lebron there in all his post game press conferences talking about wanting to be what smart players attention to detail that coach that he's re respects other superstores with kawhi leonard lamarcus aldridge assuming till i get everything worked out a marcus aldridge dijon murray the mad respect that he has for great popovich i'm sure he'll listen to san antonio but unlike a lotta spurs fans in this town i'm not getting overly is i'm not getting a major anytime while if kawhi leonard looking at his decision to return or not to return how much do you think that would weigh on the braun to come to san antonio it worked out but obviously he's looking to go play with superstars in hawaii is in here i think that certainly would hurt this first chances of landing lebron james this summer these jason mimics the host of the blitz on espn san antonio ninety four point five and am twelve fifty jason thank you so much for the time free a guys philadelphia is our next stop bob cooney hosts mornings on ninety seven point five the fanatic he's now on dickerson and hood on.

"Okay so as i mentioned a bit debut tonight for kawhi leonard will play for the first time this season as the spurs visit the mavericks leonard came in and number three in a preseason right behind only lebron james and kevin durant san antonio offense has held its own without linnet ranking twelve to the nba and efficiency but a dip was expected without colli considering they right fourth over the last two seasons when leonard started eighty nine percent of their games for sure class absence let us some production issues at the three senatorial starting small force this season are averaging just nine point six points per game 21st in the league the believed to have him or is it were looking for any team would like to have one of their best players back which friendly logical was booster lorde at one particular thing you know he's been playing well we hope that we will continue estonian plug it more minutes with nobody adjustments all away it's will be different for different players just typical it's not that toppled him i michael right joining us four from the spurs game tonight in dallas how long will kawai stay on a minute's restriction who did male there is a very good question in reason why i say that is because obviously you know that the spurs will always always always exercise on the side of caution when it comes to bring him back a player from an injury it's a matter of fact i talked to gm rc buford about that and he said that hey were always going to make sure that we take care of the best interest of player before trying to arrest somebody back on the court so i would say the best frame of reference would be tony parker tony parker when he made his debut will november 27th he played fourteen minutes and as the season has gone along the gradually ramped up his minutes now obviously quiet leonard as more of a high usage play and know tony parker's only gonna play about twenty minutes a game max but he's already at twenty minutes a game max that i was just saying and so wild later i think they will gradually just wrap him up throughout the season and then once they get comfortable with him he'll be back to full time kawai it will be the wake inning as saying go ahead as hell cadillac challenge.
