"Devin Booker, Deandre ayton, Carl Anthony towns, who I thought about having a Jan Jackson junior spot, but just a little bit older. Michael Porter junior, I'm throwing in here as an honorable because if he gets healthy, he's very good. Okay, Eastern Conference, two back court, Trey young, cade Cunningham. Okay. It's like that. I like that. Three front court, my guy, Jason Tatum, just got to put him in here. Of course. Planning to be honest. Yeah. He will not be. Giannis, who is going to be 33, I think. And by then, we'll just be shooting 45% from behind the three point line. And Evan mobley is my third grade. He's had some really nice moments in that warriors game yesterday. There are a couple of possessions where he was being guarded by beelitz on the first half and was I've never seen a player more aggressively call for the ball this season than when Motley had be elites on him. And I think the two people he was cooking had to take him out of the game immediately. Like two straight possessions ended up doing yeah, so shout out to Evan mobley. I don't have a ton of honorable mentions honestly. Scotty Barnes who looks he's just incredible. When Ricky of the year, bam, we just talked about bam. And LaMelo Ball, those are my three honorable mentions for guys who could. A lot of conceivably start. Bam disrespect, I see how it is. This is the opposite of disrespect, but honor, we put the one who wanted to trade him to Phoenix. A transcendent player. Okay. Do you want to talk about the hawks? I know why you wanted to talk about the hawks because this email was very special near and dear to your heart. It comes in from Adam, who writes hello open floor podcast. I started Paradise inferno. Oh, it's.

"Could have sold high on Antoine walker back in the day, I mean. Listen, we were texting about this because every single game now you get some kind of trade Tatum or jaylen Brown take. Every single game this is the most one of the most manufactured out of thin air storylines I've ever seen in my life. This is right up there with Kyler Murray's undefeated in Dallas because he won three high school games there. This is right up there with Ryan Tannehill, used to play. She was three and O against the Patriots. I mean, he's totally media contrived. They woke up on Sunday. It wasn't even close until they got a couple of garbage time touchdowns. Thoroughly outplayed Mac Jones. The dolphins are the most disciplined team. You asked me not to play a character and that you're going to bring that up. So whatever happens from here on is your mask on. Yeah. Has Tatum ever been as confident since bam had a viable block in the rim. I'd love to see his splits from before and after that moment. Okay, but in answers, as I was saying, before you rudely interrupted me and had to go full Boston guy, even as I was trying to throw you about trying to extend an olive branch, this is just absurdly silly manufactured storyline that makes no sense. Why would they trade either of jaylen Brown or Jason Tatum? There's no need to trade either of them, they're both exactly the kinds of players every single championship team wants. It's foolish to think of trading for any of them. We discussed this. I mean, you wrote your call last week about a potential jaylen Brown trade. And the whole point is it's like, what are you going to get back for jaylen Brown that's all of a sudden going to fix your team? I do think the front office, whether it's Danny ainge, who didn't have one of his old Celtics buddies to make a ridiculous trade form on his behalf this time, like Mikhail lynch 2008. Oh my God. Or the bug law and Brad, the cult leader, Brad Stevens. In all seriousness, though, I understand they've had some unfortunate situations that were a little bit out of their control where there was Kyrie. Gordon Hayward, to an extent, but the front office, I think deserves some scrutiny because I told you this before the season. We rewrite Jason Tatum ahead of Jimmy Butler, for example, on our top 100 list. It's so high. We both did. That's how high we are, Jason sandal. Yes. I don't think we think there's a huge gap between jaylen Brown and bam adebayo. But my point being, I think the Celtics have title contender cornerstones and Tatum and brown. And the fact that they haven't figured out the rest of the roster, I'm not saying it's easy, but when you have guys that talented to me, there's no reason that they should be in the position there. And I understand they've had injuries. They've had COVID. The bucks did the heat did the nets did. The bull certainly have every good team in the east..

"Down a windmill? And playing in a game. I know there's like lateral movement. I would like to genuinely hear some of the science behind minutes restrictions. Also, I'm not saying that I disagree with them. I'm just curious on a scientific perspective like how it works for someone like Klay Thompson, who it's like you're ready to play in an NBA game, but only I don't know, I'm just interested by it. But anyway, on with the science behind the ramp up is what you want? Yeah, like isn't the part before you get in the game the ramp up, you know? I don't know. I don't know. I think a lot of it is also they don't know what they're talking about to be honest. It's just a lot of mysterious what have you and yeah it's a very cloudy field and even the professionals are in a 100% certain. But when I just saw Jamal Murray, do a windmill, I was like, what is the difference between this and playing? How far can this person actually be from competing in the NBA? Which brings us again to Gavin's question. And to answer it just like outright, I think the answer is Jamal Murray. I think the answer's Murray as well. Yeah, 'cause we've seen Davis. We've seen that movie. We've seen the healthy Davis on the Lakers. Even if they exclusively played him at the 5 with Trevor ariza with maybe Kendrick nun comes back and they just have more options with Malik monk supposedly the savior who just is a complete no show against the grizzlies last night. Monk has been good. And Mongols my favorite signing in there is a reason. Okay, fair. I won't back on monk too. But as great as LeBron has looked, I just don't consider them. Kendrick nun is gonna come back and play major minutes too according to Frank Vogel. That doesn't change your name. Maybe we should admit this question to say AG and kenton. Exactly..

CEO of X2, Mark French, on How His Product Has Disrupted the Market
"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
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.

"Dot com. Kevin o'connor ak kevin obama. Kevin concert aka kevin climber kevin o. cannabis kevin. Oh candy lan. Kevin okay camera. Kevin killian bird. Oh what are you doing. We have a very good. Nba finals going on avondale to two. I yeah. I'm actually glad that this is one of the only pods that we have done. That is not a instant reaction show. So we've had a little time to think about what we've witnessed through the first four games of the series and one of my first thoughts was it was moving one of the pods last week. I believe it was after game. Two and i said we're going to be careful this time because we know the way this goes. They're going to walk into a hornet's nest in milwaukee milwaukee very. Well may play very well. Drew holiday won't be like this. Khris middleton won't be like this but then everybody's gonna turn and as soon as they win a couple of games be like. Oh as milwaukee figured him out now and what's wrong with this guy and what's wrong with this guy and that's just the nature of reacting to a game at a time that being said after four games with the way that they played out and we got a very very close one last night. I don't have ended. This does this. Doesn't make for great opinion based stuff. But i don't have Intensely strong opinion on. Who has the advantage right now within the series and i think if we would have done the pod last night. It's more likely that we would have been all in on milwaukee because we just saw it right we just saw it. Everything feels terrible for phoenix. Everything feels great for milwaukee but now phoenix gets to go back home to a raucous crowd. Devon booker was unbelievable in that last game. Not unlike john asante cuco was great in a loss in game two. And now if you want to tell me you're sure of what's going to happen in game five and i am a more than welcome to listen to people's opinions of their strong opinions. I just on this one man. I really feel like you could go into a game. And there are a few things that have become commonplace. But we really don't know what we're gonna get. I think that's what makes for a good series. Honestly yeah for sure. I mean i think this series here you said it last week. Chris knockin overreact to phoenix being up to especially going back to milwaukee also knocking overreact going back to phoenix now with being too But i will say this as the series has developed. We have seen things change. We have seen brook lopez. Play a lower amount of minutes. Did he was early in the series. We're seeing more jaanus under the colombo playing center. We're seeing more of those spaced. Outline janas playing center on the other side. You know. we're seeing that suns offense not get into their offense quite as easily booker obviously had an incredible game for forty two points. He was sensational. But saaf has been a little bit harder on chris. Paul withdrew holiday offer. Yeah i mean a lot. Harder withdrew hall honorable thing. I mean i couldn't so we that we've seen the series developed. You're not going to overreact. Projecting forward but i do think the box with the tweaks. They've made their lineups and to the the personnel that they're utilizing and games at bobby portis playing heavier role with even jeff t getting a handful of minutes off the bench playmaking presence. The bucks have figured some stuff out. Doesn't it feel that way it it does. But here's an. I think this is the this is the benefit of time that right after the game i sure i- shirley was feeling like oh. Wow the the bucks being able to get that one tie it back up are in a good spot right now for sure but then with the benefit of time i cannot help but get out of my head. The sons were winning the game with two minutes to go. So what am i. Am i basing all of my grand sweeping judgments on what i think about has happened in this series based upon two minutes of basketball because of the sun's win those last two minutes they win the game honestly. If you're honest doesn't block the lob eytan day may win the game you just don't know but they had the lead with two minutes to go in that game on the road. And so how. Am i supposed to convince my so. That things are all wrong with phoenix. The other thing is this cab and you start to think back to other series because we've talked about lord knows every single game that has taken place throughout all this and you know after the first two games of this one and we did this. Also in the clipper series Phoenix is awesome. They've got so many guys that star in their role. Phoenix really shares. The ball a few guys that could take the game over eight taken. This massive bleep. It's so like all of those things where things that we believed and chris paul and his apec scorned. Seventy something point in the last game of the clippers series of first game in this series and then you fast forward and last night you know. I'm seeing people it's like. Oh is it chris. Paul's played so many minutes. He's thirty six years old. They're picking them up ninety four fi. You know anne and making them go the entire time. Maybe they figured out. A little bit with chris paul. Maybe he's injured. Maybe there's something wrong with them that we don't know have that wrist-injury right but i will say this game. Three against the clippers chris. Paul was five for nineteen game four. He was six for twenty two four turnovers and they won that game. Eighty four to eighty game five us pretty good. Not great percentage had some production though and then he came back game six and he's sixteen for twenty four for forty one points eight assists for. I just feel like every time. A guy plays crappy. We were so shocked by it especially great players that. Something's wrong right so last time it was. You know devon booker's played the third or fourth most minutes of anybody in the playoffs you know. Devon booker broke his nose in three places because he had less than ten points in that game. And it's like you come up with some kind of reasons as to why the guy played poorly right so now what devin booker almost fifty points last night right so what to expect that in game three. He couldn't play do the broken nose and he was tired because of all the playoff minutes and all this other baloney but then that doesn't affect them at all in game. Four i think these are just kind of ebbs and flows of the series and we have not heard the last of chris paul of quite okay if they picked him up eighty feet from the basket. I don't care if he's old. I don't care if his wrist as messed up i. There.

"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.
"kawhi leonard" Discussed on The HoopsHype Podcast With Alex Kennedy
"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.

Little oscar was born a few years ago He sort of grew and he went to daycare. We didn't really need her around So she moved on but it was her birthday or something and so. I said we should do something you know. She'd like to see the boys. And i said let's invite her over and i would just have a little celebration for her. I think he was seven of time. Sebastian was like okay. I'll maker little meal. And i was like he's ambitious but he's not all that flash in the kitchen anyway so he started getting ready. I told her. I said come on. We're gonna have a little Little celebration for it. And so he started preparing his meal and it was One carat with uncooked unpeeled carrot An onion just an onion one and a croissant from trader joe's and try to a fantastic and he had some like raspberry jam ready to go and she was supposed to come over at like four o'clock or whatever and well that was just a little. She was literally lay. She was ten minutes late. Sebastian couldn't really white so he took a bite out of the croissant. And and put it back down on the plate and Left it there for her and was like you know i. I'm not sure. I'm not sure you should sort of nibble out of your guests treat. Then and he was like he was like you know but it's for her and i'm like i okay. Okay came in and eventually came in. I said sit down and sebastian pigewoman meal.

It was just You know he just couldn't white all that time and he loves across so we help her out with my cool story. Bro is has to do top shot back in late. February early march was right before the all stars. I guess it was right before the all stars were announced so whenever that was probably late february. And i remember trae like we were like. Oh man we figure out who the all stars are snatch up a couple of moments you know. Maybe you could flip them. Make a buck going. Like khris middleton. Chris is going to be an all star game. Yeah oh yeah. I'm gonna i'm gonna get a couple of early ninety. Lock that great team. He's already been in all star. Classic joe johnson material here like let's get a couple of these and then people will. We'll see them. Go up and well. You know where this is going like. He didn't get named to the all star team. That's the first problem with my dump plan that backfired the second part is. It's chris middleton like no one's gonna care whether he made another all star team with his top shop it so that backfired ended up giving a couple of way. And that's the story. I said it's a very cool story. Bro still a big job in my book. I thought middleton was absolute lock the bucks were ball and fifty forty ninety almost twenty five game shirts. Almost exactly what tobias harris dead and. He wasn't an all star. Either but chris middleton. I thought he was going to do it. to change that twitter bio two mome collector. Got a lot more questions. Still the tackle here on the beach but first quick break to hear from our sponsors over the weekend we saw. Lots of Throwback videos photos from the raptors celebrating the championship speech. I think you put up a couple there Because what an emotional tom. It was for us seeing the joy of seeing the raptors climate title but that was offset by the realization. That we're also job and well things have turned out pretty well Better than we could have expected here at the athletic for a couple of months ago there was some uncertainty.

"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 was unconscious last night. And seth when you're on with us earlier this morning you said it was an easy forty nine. What did you mean by that it. What makes because he never. He never was rushed. He was never out of his comfort zone. He never chased a shot. The hardest shot in the most difficult shot he took was that loan late when a shock was running down. He took what the defense gave him. Now he can get a shot anytime you want it anytime you want it right but you know what when he drove into trafficking defense rotating you know what he found on the weak side and all of a sudden lopez had a close out on a long close out and green was knocked down those three so to me. It's not that he was chasing fifty. It was not that he was trying to take over the game. He did it subtly. He did it by taking what the defense gives them and to me. He made the shot. Steady got 'cause got the response and then when defense took something away from him. He made the right play his basketball. Iq is off the chart. His feel is off the chart. Let me ask you something. Pj underrated harden eight assists. forty-three minutes. Didn't make shots. But he was like a quarterback in the pocket. Just look it over to defense saying all right. They're switching that. I'm going to hit the slip. Bam like that was an understated performance hard. Don't you think he played forty six minutes anthony at six boards on top of that. I don't wanna kill some guys.

"If they didn't have that threat out there, and that's all the Lakers were used as that means, the Lakers spent time this summer spinning their wheels, and not signing players in free agency because they were waiting for Kawhi Leonard to make his. His decision so if the Lakers were indeed used as leverage which the the piece by AMIC mentions that the Lakers started to feel that way and Jeanie Buss started to have that suspicion that they were being used as leverage. If the Lakers for like that's what was really going on and that I was kind of in some ways doing both things at the same time that he was, he was both helping the clippers out and pushing. Pushing the clippers to make a trade in order to get Paul George while making sure that the Lakers could sign the free agents that they wanted so. It's kind of a double whammy. Right because he's using that. Lakers leverage in order to both. Push the clippers in order to make the moves to make them better keeping a big opponent in the Lakers for making themselves better. If the Lakers feel like that's what was really going on. On you can understand why they would be a little bit cranky. Regarding Kawai Leonard again a lot of fascinating stuff lot of dynamics going on to this whole situation and I. Know I know look. This was five six months ago was done is done quiet clipper and all of that, but the NBA is definitely looking into things that happened this summer and speaking of players. The Lakers could not sign this summer because they are waiting for. Some of them off. The before free agency even started so the NBA. GonNa Start cracking down on this kind of stuff because they don't want this happening. Look Kemba Walker was already going to the Celtics before free agency even began now has a player who is under contract with the Charlotte Hornets at the time talking to the Boston Celtics while he's still Charlotte Hornets. How is that not a violation of the rules? Well, it certainly is in the Celtics worth the only team. There were a lot of teams violated the CBA rules this summer. So that's something. The NBA is going to be cracking down on, and they're going to be investigating very closely. Any teams at tried to violate their salary cap circumvention rule so again. Clippers definitely have been looked at because of this again so far nothing. That all it takes is one thing coming out, and suddenly this blows up and becomes a much much bigger issue that the NBA would reopen and start digging a little deeper into whether or not. The clippers gave in and gave coup is something more than just the salary than just the contract and the opportunity to play alongside Paul George then again. There is that question of did COA Leonard go out..

saying that he will not be sharing any inside information with his new team about his old team and I don't have a whole lot of recall for guys saying what Eric Weddle is saying here which is quote I could tell them a lot of stuff but that's just not who I am so we're gonna play it on the field and the best team is going to win I have a lot of respect for that place not only how it helped my career and rejuvenated my career how they treated me and my family but it's a very tight knit group and what would I be what kind of man would I be if I just turned my back on all of them thank you got a I'm not even joking I mean it is out rages first off Marcus Peters is a ram who was on the ravens he's given it out I mean that's what you do the ravens cut you Eric Weddle they cut you they didn't re sign you they decided you were no longer worth the millions of dollars they were paying you and the ram decide you have something left in the tank and they signed you in their pay you millions of dollars and the least you could do is give you some information on the opponent you're about the play I'm gonna I'm seriously I mean okay that seems a bit aggressive wow that aggressive you have an employer paying him millions of dollars he has information about the opponent you're about the blade the big game he won't give it up it's not like they're playing the Chargers that's what he's known for he's known to be a Cindy ago charger use they have like nine years you want to give up that information may be perhaps it understand but you don't want to give up the ravens will call you in the off season because they don't think you're worth it anymore you should be ashamed of okay for having I thinks he should be ashamed of himself and he should be punished she should be cut this ignores some things which is yeah you know it's the gods is very good at doing one of the things that it nor is is that the ravens told you all offseason what they were gonna do and bill Belichick had plenty of time to prepare for it and it doesn't matter if you tell them what's coming it's Lamar Jackson good luck good luck with the whole tackling of him thing also and I'm surprised you're not familiar with this notion he could be lying well I'm surprised by a couple of things here that still god hasn't considered that he is lying and just being ethical in public while being impure in private which would be this to god smoke but of course the gods would come out against FX and say that they should be punished I will be beholden to your paycheck I think you're hold on to your former got you the thing is he got his right if they cut him let's see how much the ravens love him let's see if the rate inside him again even a two way street honest love that Eric what all has for the ravens but I don't think it is let's of they cut him today and the rave inside him he would then give up the information he was just playing for all right wow that you love them as much as he loved the raven for he was cut right then we need to keep track of how many times he says is that thing this is ridiculous when did that become a catch phrase of yours I don't know but if you guys

locker room but can you imagine Hey what all you got any tips for me nope sorry can't tell you anything we'll figure it out on the field together even though I know we'll figure it out together on the field but seriously what could he give them that will help them tackle Lamar Jackson any better right I think what they're what they're looking for is more of the defensive schemes of the ravens like to play to help out the offense of the LA ready I'll give it up do you like the rate the ravens have had the best defense in the league since Marcus Peters got there Marcus Peters was discarded by the

"kawhi leonard" Discussed on Xtra Sports Radio 1300 AM
"Who's been waiting for this moment it finally happened Paul George and Kawhi Leonard on the court eighty nine in the same day and what a time for them to make their debut as a tandem against the team with eleven wins in the Celtics at staples center for the home crowd get really excited and it wasn't just those two guys which is one reason why people are so high on the clippers is because they do have incredible depth they've got Patrick Beverley whose side defensive stopper and and now and then well is watching those intense eyes will also hit a big shot he's a scrapper Williams who was one six men of the year in the NBA every single season that he has been in the league at least it feels like that he's won the six man of the year award it doesn't tie he's well he's a lightning rod up a huge spark off the bench when he comes off the bench until this is a really good gauge for the clippers really good gauge for the Celtics as well and also fantastic entertainment for those of us who are NBA fans it's after hours with Amy Lawrence here on CBS sports radio thanks so much for tuning in good to hear from you it's a really busy last twenty four hours so we not only had to a show to do that that time many of you listen to but last night our home show but tied addition we were real busy with our social media over these last few hours when we were apart when we were not together here on CBS sports radio I appreciate so many of you that checked out our latest you tube offering which was just a segment of the show but to a topic about which I am passionate using social media in ways that it was not intended it turned out I got a taste of that on Wednesday myself and a lot of you responding to my clip on you to and in addition a lot of you are writing back after you read my latest football column which I really appreciate and then we've had all kinds of conversation about the brawl and the fallout and you know exactly what I'm talking about the Steelers Browns how well how does it feel like ancient history I don't know it wasn't even a week ago and yet so much has happened in sports and fed in that job it does seem like it was a lot longer ago than that but we still haven't seen the final rulings from the appeals officers we know at least at this point that Larry good job you will still have to serve his one game suspension the Browns defensive linemen but he was kind of the last guy into the free gifts he came running it and shoved Mason Rudolph from behind and so he got the one game suspension maybe that was the easiest one for James thrash to rule on thrash who's a former NFL wide receiver himself he's actually one of the league's appeals officers he also heard miles Garrett he all on Wednesday and then marquees county within between he was on Tuesday and we're waiting to find out whether or not these appeals will reduce what are seven yet well indefinite suspension but six games for mild Garrett plus anything in the post season and then three games Margie spell the when I said seven I was thinking total Browns game suspended I don't believe that mild Garrett will services pension that carries over into twenty twenty I I can't imagine that it gets reduced to the point where he is back on the field again this year but I don't know that it will remain an indefinite suspension I could see the appeal defining the suspension as the final six games of the season you're out for the rest of the way and maybe he doesn't have to reapply to be instated reinstated here that applied to be reinstated so maybe that's how the appeal changes that I just can't imagine that he's back on the field before the end of this season but I could be wrong that's my opinion my sense of coming up at the top of next hour Jason lock in for a CBS NFL insider not only is he a regular guest here on the show we love them but in addition to that you see him every Sunday morning on the NFL today on CBS so he's that he's a guy who's always in but no one has a lot of sources that that he talks to on a regular basis so ask him his sense about V. appeals for miles Garrett and marquise Pouncey and where that might go store waiting on that news and we're getting set for week twelve in the NFL I can't believe that it's here I can't believe it's the weekend before thanksgiving I spent some time with some friends on Wednesday evening and we were all talking about our thanksgiving plans whoa whoa my house is decorated for thanksgiving I've been practicing my pumpkin baking but I just I don't think that my brain has quite caught up to the calendar so we'll do a little bit of everything on tonight show yet another huge moment for lugar Dodge it and as the Mavericks blast the war years by forty eight points four forty eight point it just blows my mind where the warriors are now compared to where they where they were safe five months ago gosh how quickly life come that you especially in sports we're inside the rocket mortgage by quicken loans studios home is more than the house of the personal paradise you can get yours at rocket mortgage push button get mortgage you can find me on Twitter a law radio and also on our Facebook page after hours with Amy Lawrence thanks for all your questions press gave me anything by the way I did go back an answer as many as I possibly could on our social media it's good that that stock we can communicate back and forth right we gave it a civil interesting above board and not AT conversation like I said I had my own a bit of social media blackness on Wednesday I'll let you go check it out you can go look at it if you like to our phone number is eight five five two one two four two two seven but they five five two one two for CBS so it finally happened Paul George Kawhi Leonard in the same game at the same time it took a few weeks for this to happen it took the right scenario where there aren't back to backs until Kawhi Leonard can play it could be that way the rest of the season who knows but the timing right for Paul George and he's been fantastic then he came back so it's good to see him healthy again so if you weeks we had to wait like a big teeth but they finally come together in a game against the Celtics on national TV and why not I'm sure that was an orchestrated I'm sure it just happened organically so they sell seven point lead in the fourth quarter at staples center against the clippers but there was still a long way to go before this one would be done get out of the way well short rebounded no good and your number of the other way Williams wait wait wait all the little William.
"kawhi leonard" Discussed on First Things First
"So it's I think that's a huge mismatch. This week clippers clippers taken on the Pelicans last night. Paul George Making his debut lonely night for him without his Buddy Leonard in the lineup. Why will something we like to call load management? PG Thirteen though came out finished with thirty three points. Nine rebounds the clippers however took the loss one thirty two one twenty-seven NECAS costing the clippers. Win Swift this load management that they're open three without him in the lineup. This is undeniable that he's costing them wins. Even the people supporting supporting the load management would acknowledge that the Pelicans were eight and played last night without Lonzo. Who hasn't been very good but also without Brandon Ingram? WHO's been sensational up to this point this season and Paul George comes back gives you thirty three and twenty four minutes? He was great. He came back earlier from the injury. Then I suspected than I expected and he looked better immediately than I expected credit to him by the way who we remember correctly that the Los Angeles Clipper this year that was top three in the MVP last year league-wide seat regular seasons Leonard. It's Paul George who was top three defensive player of the year voting top-three MVP VP. Leonard was not but yeah he is absolutely unequivocally costing them once and I. I know that the argument is well. It won't matter if he's better in the postseason because of it. But that's an unknowable. And I know people say last year well the how can you criticize that. He missed twenty two games when they won the title. You know the second most load manage player in the NBA last year was Joel embiid. So I'm just curious when the raptors played the sixers in round two of last year's playoffs if the raptors raptors one would that also have been a victory for load management one of those load managing. Player's GonNa win one was going to lose for the last point and I think it's the one that's most relevant last year's there's raptors he load. He rested twenty two games last year. They lost five of them. They were seventeen and five. He's missed three games this year. They've lost all three of them. The clippers do not appear to be nearly as equipped as the raptors. Were to deal without Kawhi Leonard because deep deep they're not as deep they don't have the depth there absolutely is is costing them games in the narrative lash load management is getting way too much credit for for success and the Raptors Championship. First of all he was still hobbled in the playoffs and it was pretty amazing performance. Bryant the fight through the quad injury that he was dealing with you did have a warriors team which was decimated as well with injuries. So I think it gets too much credit in general and I think the clippers are being a little bit too cute with this and it is going to cost them and I wonder do you think there's a scenario where in the back end of the season. This might blow up in their face because they do start looking at. Hey we have to pick up the pace a little bit. We do have to start winning games. Maybe getting those top four spots or somewhere in there where I think. It could backfire on the clippers as an aside. Paul George finished up the game. Even though he did have thirty three points and said he felt terrible. said he failed badly. He could've John Moore said it felt like a preseason game though shoulders did feel healthy which is the takeaway but he gives thirty three and nine on a game where he said. He wasn't playing that great could he. Could he get better better enough. We're we're we're Paul George is talking about is the clippers is a team were horrific defensively. He had five turnovers and he only played twenty four minutes. I'm sure what he's really talking about. Is Paul George is not here to play twenty four minutes and in those twenty four minutes. He was in foul trouble in the five thousand. So that was part I. I don't know exactly what they're playing was minutes wise but I wonder how much the foul trouble played into at least to a degree. But the young Paul George coming back makes it a lot more palatable win quite Leonard Mrs Games. It's why why I was. People really started paying attention to this last week. I was on this two weeks ago when four games into the year. He missed a game because I said hold hold on. You're going to load manage before Halloween when Paul George is not even there yet if I thought. PG Twenty Games. They said it would be around ten and end that being right around ten if the clippers new that the fact that quite couldn't stomach couldn't deal with it until George back that this wasn't the very first game of the year that he missed or even wait another week until you and Paul George get on the floor together but yes it is costing them and how deep do people think the West is because I believe when no distracted the mavericks or the Spurs or the sons who are really surprising team. I think there are five. Excellent basketball teams teams in the Western Conference. There's obviously both teams in La. There's Utah which added Conley added Boyer. Bogdonovich had a great off season. There's dimmer which was the the two seed last year that if Yokich gets going can be very dangerous team and there's Houston who just beat the clippers a couple nights ago five teams one one of those teams will be on the road in the first round and one of those teams will be home after the first round. Go ahead and that's what I was referencing. The back end of the season at the clippers find themselves outside of those top four seeds. Do they all the sudden start to change their methodology and then it all blows up in their face it just to me. It's way too early to go with this extreme of the rest I would argue. It's not the top four seizure worried about. It's the top three because if you are four yeah you're in court but you're playing one of the you're playing one of those five one of those teams going home in the first round before the year. I said I thought it'd be the clippers. Everyone thought take for this for the just to make a take shake like just to get it. The reason I feel that way and felt that way is because we knew Paul George is going to miss time and we knew who I was going to load owed manage and the idea that they're just going to be able to roll out of bed come the post season and even if I'm wrong that they'd be gone in the first round they they're putting themselves selves imposition. Were of those five teams four and the clippers. They would have to be three of them in a series to go to the NBA finals. Not that they don't and get the Kings in round one or whomever the.
