"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..

"The only thing I'm going to say is about the wallow. Be Seventeen. Guys don't WanNA play. If you're not getting the stars playing Chris, then it's going to be a bogus championship if Kawhi Leonard Paul George don't WanNa play for the clippers. I'm sorry as no way I could look at that championship to same way what why? Yeah? I bet you. If Lebron got sick, you look at it the same way, no one. No, I wouldn't I. Know I I I saying. Morris Lane is what I'm talking about well from everything I'm hearing. This stars WanNa play like the teams that the stars on the teams that have a legit shot from what I'm being told. The Lakers are all in, and obviously they're following their LEA leader Lebron. The clippers are all in from what I'm hearing. The rockets with hard in Westbrook. They're all in now George. He did say that. He, he's. He had a very emotional and powerful video. Call with some reporters. And he was saying that because he's been. He seemed people victimized by police, brutality and things like that and he was saying. Right now it's hard for him to think about. He couldn't care less about basketball said like you said. I'm a professional I'M GONNA do my job. I'm GONNA play, but this is what's really on my mind. Right and I think this is the thing rob. I understand why the superstars may feel differently than the role, players or art. Let's say the teams that don't have a shot, but even on the teams that do ever shot. For Lebron James Championship is legacy changing right for collide. Leonard Jaanus James Harden all these guys you win. Your legacy has changed right. Even if your own a contender. But you're a role player. Is it. Is it changing Alex crusoes legacy? If he wins ring is don't change in Georgia, hills legacy. No you know is nice. I'm sure he wants to ring. But nobody's GonNa think any differently of George Hill if he this championship. So I think there's all that to consider for these guys to it's it's interesting because you got four hundred players, all of different levels right and this this means different things for different players. The implications are different. I eight, seven, seven, ninety, nine, all Fox. A seventy, seven, nine, six, sixty, three, sixty nine. Here's the question we want to hear from you listeners, or we will answer from you listeners. Would you think differently? Of the players if they don't play, would you think differently of the players or maybe somebody individuals? Maybe they do play, but some individuals sit out. Would you think differently guys? It decide not to play or even if the league.

"Center of the news to me. It's damaging and it's risky Colosio plays L. The patriots. They're coming off their bye week. which off their first loss of the season they will face the Sunday it's a rematch of Super Bowl? Fifty two eagles won that Game Patriots. The loss gets who can't move past it. Tom Brady said he still thinks about it. To this day. The Eagles are home underdogs. And what some are calling a must-win knit this philly. Haley pull off the upset against the Patriots. Four answer that question Wolf. I would like to ask you a question. What did I say before the Baltimore? WHO's GonNa win that game the Ravens I said the Patriots and the next five games? WE'RE GONNA lose. How many do you remember? Three three three and a five th they were going to be thirteen and three still the one but they were gonNA have three losses in their next five. This is lost number two at Philly this weekend. I don't know why one would believe the Patriots should be the favorite favorite in this this game. Other than the eagles level of inconsistency throughout the season Carson Wentz has not had the year. I expected him to have. He's still having a better year than Tom Brady. and Tom Brady by the way if you look at what he's done and this passing game has done post the first three weeks of the season which even though New England England had a soft opening eight weeks those three weeks. You have Pittsburgh which was a team that was not the defense they are now at all didn't have make they. They had the Devin. Bush was not the player areas and most importantly Miami and the jets. Since then Tom. Brady's seven touch sounds five picks and eighty-three passer rating which would be twenty-sixth in football. Since then they also have shown this team can be run on. And as you've talked about Danny the last couple of weeks that's Philadelphia's finally started to find their footing running the football I I think the Patriots are a great pass defense and that is where right now. The greatness ends with at this team aside from Bill Belichick and coaching legacy of Tom Brady. The pass offense has not been great the run defense great the special teams from kicking game perspective respective have been a mess because Gostkowski out for all those reasons and because filling needs this game a hell of a lot more than New England. And they're at home. I like Philadelphia. I think New England loses loses two in a row. I think there is no way the Patriots lose two in a row. You're talking about a bill belichick. Tom Brady two of the greatest competitors. This game has ever seen with a week to prepare Abai week to get healthy to start game planning and steaming and boiling. And letting this stu there is no way. Revenge factor to the last time I that's probably overplayed overplayed somewhat but you combined all of that. Plus I do think the Patriots were I don't want to say overrated because that sounds like a knock but when their defense was being talked about is potentially the greatest of all time. I thought that was a little bit of hyperbole right. They weren't and it was propped up by their schedule but I do think they are still an elite defense this year in the NFL will. And I do think they will have a time. 'cause I also think it wasn't that long ago and it's amazing how winning can change the narrative it can change everything in a locker room it can change legacies. It can change the way you perceive Steve Quarterbacks it was not that long ago and actually thought that this team would come together because some of the criticism that was coming from the team but there were rumors rumors in the locker room. I was Carson Wentz a leader and Lane Johnson's calling out guys. That are late for practice. You've got former players in Orlando scandic calling out the team. This team was a little bit of a mess mess and for that reason. Not It's just the inconsistency with this eagles team has been there and that's why it's really hard for me to trust them in the spot even though they're at home and the Patriots I do think are not as good or great as everybody thinks they are. I think is a game where the Patriots get back on track went on to say both teams have seen a lot of changes over the last two years. How different are these two teams? I mean we know that the Patriots Defense is obviously playing as well as well. It depends depends who you think of their opposition but how much of these two teams changed. Since the last time they play to me. These are the as different as teams can be a couple years removed. I mean the Patriots. You look at the key components of that super bowl run aside from Brady Bella Czecho- cattleman that team has turned over almost entirely. You add a Gilmore. was there already at that point so he had some of your key cogs but Bronx obviously not there. The offensive line China's changed. The kicker is changed they had forty five different wide receivers walk through the door in that time. The Eagles on the other hand are drastically different football team from personnel and from mentality from the they were much better as the hunter then as the hunted and they are still trying to find their footing there but you mentioned Bella Check Brady ready coming off a bye as just how the schedule fell phillies. Also coming off a bye. Philly also is coming off what I would consider best two games of the season aside from the Green Green Bay game and I mentioned Green Bay game on purpose Philly as shown in ability at least once this year to beat a great opponent New England has play the two teams that would currently qualify for the postseason Buffalo. Who they beat by the skin of their teeth on a blocked punt was the difference in that football game and Baltimore? Who whooped them this to me? Philly is the second team they will have faced all year. I think Philly's better than Buffalo. Even though buffalo is the better record and I think this game being in Philadelphia Place. Their strange greatly two weeks people have been telling the Patriots. Oh you were propped up by the schedule. I'm telling you that will not that will not bode well for the Eagles because the Patriots are going to come out very fine but one thing we'd even mentioned about the last time they played was was Carson Wentz. The quarterback in Super Bowl obviously is exactly so I mean that's a massive difference between those and it's one of the most impressive things about Tom Brady while there really is no debate about who is the goat. How many different players that? He's lifted up and brought to super bowls. It's amazing what he's been able to do to kill Harry in the lineup and the game this Sunday. So we'll see blood.

"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.

"Criticized. I think his teammates will move onto Sunday's big match ravens versus Texans dual threat quarterback versus dual threat quarterback Lamar Jackson with an MVP within reach. Is Ravens Team on a five game win streak. Doc while does Shawn Watson has quietly carried Houston to first place in the AFC south. Nick it's an easy question. Might not be an easy answer. Who's got the edge Sunday the Baltimore Ravens in Marie aspects other than quarterback? And that's no shot at Lamar. I just think deshaun right now is a ticker to better than Lamar. Our Week in week out while the mark and flash to be the best player in the League at times on any given week I I expect eight minus to a level quarterbacking from the Sean I expect B plus minus level quarterbacking from Lamar but in every other box. You WanNA check. It is the Ravens. By far they have one of the greatest kickers ever. They have one of the best coaches in the NFL. The Texans I would argue of one of the worst coaches in the NFL. The Ravens have a defense that at the beginning of the year wasn't really fully together. They didn't trade for Marcus. Peters they get Jimmy Smith Back Earl. Thomas gets more familiar with what they're doing. They're that defense is scary now. The Texans defense getting worse. Jj Watt done for the season. We know the Ravens have a better offensive line. Even with the Texans edition of Laremy Tunsil. and Oh yeah by the way. Where's this football game? Oh It's in Baltimore so for all those reasons. I feel like the Baltimore. Ravens are a super bowl contender. I feel like the Houston. Texans are playoff off contender and so for all those reasons I think Baltimore has the clear cut edge almost across the board in this game. I agree with you. I think the Baltimore Ravens also also have something that's just special and unique in their offense combined with large acts and with Mark Ingram with their ski scheme the Ground Roman is designing. That's actually utilizing things. I agree with you across the board because I do think Deshaun Watson as a passer clearly has an advantage in. Here's experience your aunt and success. What he's actually done to this point? What I think is going to be interesting? I think you and I are both on the same page as far as liking the Ravens in this game is that both teams are pretty good defensively against run. And that could put more onus on the past game with these quarterbacks and yet when you're talking about the most dominant run game in the NFL. I think that would still be a bigger challenge for the Texans to slow down the ravens in any in any aspect so I think the ravens will run the ball successful. Listen the Texans. axons have had a nice season so far they they have a great win over Kansas City. Look Sean they almost had a great win week. One against New Orleans that ended up being squandered at the very very end however their next three weeks are really really difficult. They play Baltimore and India team. That's already beaten them. And then new New England. We're GONNA if I'm wrong that they are just a playoff contender that they are in fact super bowl contender. They can prove that this week. If they win this week. They finish just this week looking like the two seed in the AFC. Because they'll be seventh. Ravens will be seven and three and they will have that critical head to head tiebreaker. And that's something. The Texans Franchise has never had a bye in the first round. This is a team that since they came back to Houston has never been past the second round of the postseason. They clearly believe they can this here. You don't trade off between August first and right now they have traded away two number ones a number two to number. Three's as far as draft picks for players currently on the roster for guys. They won't right now to help them win right now. They believe were in the window to Shawn's on his rookie deal De'andre they thought they were still going to have. Jj Watt obviously the only the only outgoing talent they had was cloudy which was a move. I didn't understand but they thought merciless. What would be enough so the Texans believe they are in that top tier of the AFC with New England with Baltimore with Kan city? If you still include Kansas City in there I do not. I think the Texans are a bit of a one. One man show in the Shawn Watson and his connection with the receiving course of one man pluses weapons and then everything else on. The team is a question mark. I wouldn't be shocked if Indians Indians of winning this division over Houston because of the next few weeks. Take him prove me wrong with a win this week. This would be a spectacular win arguably the single best win of the bill. O'Brien Brian era in Houston would be this week in. Both what was going to get to that because their off-season was a bit of a mess when they fired their gm it was very odd and they make all these deals after that. It did feel like this was a make her break season for bill. O'Brien and yet once again the Shawn Watson is the guy carrying a lot of that load covering up for anything. He cleaned up a lot right. He's GonNa he's GonNa make your team that much better I would ask you. Is it similar to sort of what you say about the browns yesterday. Even the cowboys to some extent if you miss the playoffs would it be better in the long run for Watson if if they did go in a different direction because he's you know one year wonder we're still figuring out you've already know what you're getting with bill. O'Brien listen for some reason for some other her Ownership in Houston whether it's the late bobbing narrator son. Callum McNair are just intoxicated with bill. O'Brien it's not that he is on on the hot seat it's that he he has gotten a premature contracting Centrum. Before last season and this season he became arguably the second most powerful head coach in the entire. NFL behind only mentality Bellingham. Right right He. It's he and the former team chaplain for the Patriots. That are making the true story story. th there are making the decisions for the Texans so no. I don't think even if they turned six and three into nine seven or eight and eight. I don't think he gets is fired so I know for them. It's not losing is better for you because I don't think there's any systemic changes in Houston if they lose and by the way they have shown at their best they can be really good but the lack of consistency week to week and the in Game Decision Making harbaugh understands the math embraces. The math goes with it bill. O'Brien Brian is still on the schools. And.

"She's a mom so she'll be joining us in studio our number three that'll be great and I've been wanting to get the voice of a clippers fan a diehard long time old school clippers fan on this show to give voice as to what the Kawhi Leonard Paul George Double Dip means to Clipper WBUR FAN and <hes> I've I got James.

Okay and just going down those memory lanes. What what what Jim Brooks is done in the world of television and movies is ridiculous? Let's just put it this way. He's one of the few guys you can tell us how the simpsons got started what it was like on the set of broadcast broadcast news and also great Andy Kaufman Story from taxi and maybe Ted Knight Story from Mary Tyler Moore I mean it really but the stories he's going to tell are going to clip. Could you imagine going Clipper Games for twenty twenty twenty five thirty years seen all that getting a little bit of a taste wet your beak a little bit with Chris Paul Blake Griffin Deandra Jordan a little bit and now having this happen and you're on equal footing with the Lakers which they are so I wanted to get him. He'll be calling into the show our number three. What's our poll question <hes> possibilities okay? I got three options three options. You want the sports ones I. I got to sports ones and a just a fun one. Okay go for the sports options N._B._A.. Win Totals have been released out in the desert clippers fifty five and a half Lakers fifty one and a half a lot.

The one where the four that I came up with the Hawk Hawk for Andre Dawson the Kid Gary Carter also could is the big unit Randy Johnson. Does Mr October Reggie Jackson you could put the Bambino in there I mean that is old school but old school bill and then and then at the splendid splinter but for for that doesn't really roll off. I know look but doesn't exactly roll off the tongue. You know what I mean. Scholten Joe Great so which ones Oh you got the kid the kid the Hawk the big unit Mr October.

We're a big fan of that. As we know today's the slowest sports day of the year well you could say tomorrow's the slowest sports day of the year. There's nothing going on today or tomorrow and tomorrow if you want sure what's the worst dead time experience.

"The NBA the warriors waving Shaun Livingston three time NBA champ living some will be thirty four before the start of next season remains intent to return for a sixteenth season given what we saw in the NBA this past weekend Kawhi Leonard Paul George the latest name that's in the mix for a potential move Russell Westbrook ESPN analyst Tim Legler I don't think you need to go to a team that's already a contender because it's a very difficult guy to incorporates what you already have if you're contender must have a lot of town already you think you've got good chemistry I think he also not going to go to a team that's lottery down that doesn't make a lot of sense either way the place that you had need to find one of those teams of a five hundred female team trying to get to the next level that's already got some veteran talent for me I think the Detroit Pistons of a great fit I think he got the problem as well with Blake Griffin they can get up and down the floor Blake likes to get out of here before morning could also be independent of Russell Westbrook to get his own office and even a guy like a hundred drop when I look at he's a guy that to me can you give me some of that Russell Westbrook excels with Steven Adams in Oklahoma City is one of the best combinations in the league Charlie Russell Westbrook could be that type of electrifying talent who you pair him with a couple other vets at those spots and they don't really have another guard there that dominates the basketball so the show was going to be his and he can help get that scene from a five hundred team maybe get them in the top five in the eastern conference's certainly make them a lot more G. can also put people in the seats because they had a hard time since they went into the new building in Detroit getting people to come out of that building yeah there's no doubt about he's going to change IT whether support or another teen frames has been bonkers right because you seem so much player movement from all those revamp minus would you like I would agree with you to all right I know there's been teams will get more attention the Lakers and clippers out as you jump to a jump out to my Brooklyn with dated I look at what you thought did.

"But I thought Nikolay Yokich will be my second team center in my second team guards. Kawhi Leonard Paul George for the first time in eleven years. Lebron James will not make a first team all in the. A he is on my third team ballot which I'll talk about in a little bit. But Kirk to you for your first teams my first through to enjoy my first thing is almost the same. Curry harden at the guards Jaanus at the forward. I have Paul George again to tobacco your earlier point. How phenomenal he was before the the all-star break. We can't be prisoners of the moment. I have joke as my center on the first team. I think it came down to him and Embiid, and I give the tiebreaker to team performance over the over. The course of the year. I'm not mad. If anybody hasn't beat over him. That's fine. My second team is Lillard. I have Westbrook Durant co y and. And bead. Kevin. Right now. I have James harden. And I have Damian Lillard is my first team guard, and okay Lillard versus curry is still undecided. There's some outstanding precincts I really want to. Those roll seats that have you know, punch card ballots. But I just Dame's season has been absolutely phenomenal team has been incredible. And he made first team last year wouldn't be out of wouldn't be out of line. I just any so durable. And it means Paul Jordan Johnson to culpa my forwards and like Kirk I have Yokich really just nosing out. Embiid and have no objections to anybody who has been who will anchor my second team center with Kevin Durant and Blake Griffin as my Lord's, Kyrie Irving and either Steph curry or Lillard, I'm still that is the toughest again outstanding precinct outstanding race. I have right now. And I will hold off on thirteen because it is a mess right now. Okay. So this is where we get into it. We have five players who third team makes a contractual difference. For them Carl towns has already signed his extension. But if he makes thirteen and the window here is open because Anthony Davis who's been first team. The last couple of years is not. You know, and he doesn't always play center, but he's made first team center last two years or these first team NBA, I the last two years is ineligible for his trade demand. I don't know their way to say it. So that opens the door for for Carl towns the other players. Klay. Thompson would be eligible for the supermax as a free agent two hundred and twenty million versus one hundred ninety million as as max it's worth thirty million dollars to him. It's worth thirty million dollars to Kemba Walker again to twenty versus one ninety at the max, then we have Bradley Beal who if he gets on the thirteen MBA as eligible for a supermax extension. He can extend for years the two years he has left on his contract. I guess that's four players or players. I think it really matters deal forgetting somebody all of them are candidates. To me. I'm putting LeBron Blake Griffin is my thirteen four words Blake had a phenomenal year. Kevin had him on second team. I don't necessarily argue that the broad even though spend disappointing season the only played in the fifty five games. I do think it was Representative season..

"A contract along a one plus one so if he signed for anything more than that it wouldn't surprise me but again you know you see what's on the table at the time anything can happen but as of today before we enter free agency i would think that he is going one plus one if he can continue to haul that leverage over a gemini goes through or if you remains including now just one or two more things we look at a contenders around league when you look at the cairo irving situation with boston do you think that's an issue right now i know some fans are getting worried there's been some talk that the knicks could get him i i don't know if that's just speculation or if his camp wants him in new york there have been talking about that about that before it was from new jersey do you think boss as anything to worry about or are they in a good position to keep him winning cures all ryan exactly you know i think i guess you could say kyrie's case that he's he made multiple files cleveland they still wanted out but kyri irving's the guy in boston you know jason tatum is a rising star in haywood is there but now offered isn't all star but it is career wtn's team so i think as long as they win and do what they're supposed to do i still think they're in really good position and you know sure you hear about rumblings about the knicks and whatnot but you know you could say the same thing for kemba walker who's going to be a free agent has some new york ties so you know sometimes i think that stuff gets a little too blown out of proportion and then like i said if you if the boston celtics win in kyrie's the guy in boston the have young core there you haven't chance it sustainable success i don't really see why you would leave that if you're happy off the court i agree with you and i think a lot of this started whenever kyri was saying he didn't eat assign extent you didn't make business sense in he's right for fans that don't know the way the cbi is now a doesn't make sense for a player to sign extension you almost have to hit free agency and then resign you could do what kevin durant chris paul did and say i'm going to be back here there's there's even talking about it and that does seem to put the rumors to bed but i think kyrie it all started after he made those comments and i think people kind of taking that and running with it and blowing in our proportion like you said now just really quickly houston and gold state to other contenders that were phenomenal this year let's start with houston trevor aretha is a free agent clink capello's a free agent do you think they just resign there guys and you know pay whatever is necessary to do that or could you see one of those guys possibly leaving if there's a big enough offer elsewhere arceli i bring him back because what what has changed houston and made them true contender against golden state is the defensive side of the ball they always had the offense but when you have cappella areza luca mahmoud say pj soccer those guys that can lock up people and you need that when you're going off against the golden state if it was up to me and i was running team adam bring them all back and try to.

"You know could you see ilyasova belen elliott try to take maybe a discount to come back and play those guys really make a run title maybe depends on the market and obviously next factor as well but i think you certainly have a fair shot at it when you when you had a guy like lebron if you're philadelphia seventy sixers fan yet and if you tell shooters head you're gonna have a chance to play alongside simmons in lebron income here and get valuable playing time you're going to be an important piece on what could be a contender a championship contender they're going to be interested you're gonna find some guys willing to go there so it is really interesting i'm surprised they're being mentioned more as well when you look at the lakers what do they have to do to get a guy like lebron is it landon golly paul george is it making a trade for you know other piece or is this core enough to do it the one thing with lebron l a everyone's bringing up his off court endeavors like you know his production company and all that stuff but he shown he can run this from cleveland he has necessarily need to be in la to have that kind of success you know i think once you get to a certain point you almost don't need to be in a big market because you sort of transcend that maybe i'm wrong but i mean we saw that with kevin durant he had the most endorsements of any player in oklahoma city he left more for basketball reasons than for endorsement reasons lebron's become you know huge marketing an icon and businessman entrepreneur do you think he would go to la for the awkward stuff or c mainly focused on just encore fit i think for lebrons it's total package look sure the off court stuff helps at the same time seen russell westbrook martin himself nicely in oklahoma city which is considered more smaller market lebron is as you mentioned he's the face of the league he can go anywhere and be marketable i don't think that's the main thing it's more about keeping his family happy you not trying to continue to compete for for tiles longterm he's more than anything a competitor andy knows he is continuing to you chase the battle of you now the best player ever i think that that has to creep in his mind is some point in which team can position him to win the most idol's going forward you know as advances as he advances in age so if you had to predict lakers cavs sixers where would you have him going you know i'm not fantasies i'm sorry buddy does he's trade yeah he was on what you predict this i would say i think ultimately the lakers would be if he leaves cleveland the lakers would be the favourite which strong consideration for philadelphia but it's gonna be fun and i think you know it will be i think it could be maybe a week or so maybe a little bit more of him designing it it is a big decision you know if he decides earlier than that than i think you can bligh maybe get his thing in beforehand ghana had his idea sentence stone but you know it's it's really gonna be fascinating this is going to shake the league going forward and then what type of the eldest do where earth signs as well those max question for you so i tend to agree with you i think he should go to philly i think he does go to the los angeles lakers is it possible because this is a dry market as we said because he doesn't really fully know what he's getting into with this new organization if he does leave cleveland let's say or because he doesn't he he's always been someone that wants to have a one year deal to wield that power to be able to say you need to build a win now team if i want someone traded or i wanna certain move made i feel it's going to happen because i quit leave the summer he someone that's wanted that power for awhile now even if it's just in the form of you know a two year deal with a player option for the second year do you see him doing that again yeah see that just because like hello bron lebron is in me to sign a long term dealing where lebron james you know like you said he will he holds that power no matter where he goes i think he loses leverage if he's locked into.

"You know that this actually expedites the process little bit now smoke is on the bron james g u we talked about him a little bit i i know vegas right now has the lakers or returning to the cavaliers as you know one in two options i'm not sure about that i have a hard time believing and go back to the cavaliers and i don't think the lakers are the old team is going to consider when you look lebron james free agency what you see happening why they maybe not as prevalent in the in the forefront would be to fill he sony sixers you know i mean i was a little surprised to see i don't know if i want to call a speculation or rumblings whichever word you wanna use but let's talk about philadelphia's of viable action i think that you know that would be really interesting that you know as you look long term and any has certainly have the lakers in in cleveland i'll say this one look lebron's free agency cleveland has rallied at least amount of flexibility to bring in reinforcements you know exactly what you're getting and in the playoffs lebron carrying this team on his back you know they nearly lost to the pacers around one which i think a lot of people talk about you know after they ended up going to the byles but lebron had so many big moments against in the anna the shot against toronto at the buzzer you know going up against boston he carried that team singlehandedly as he continues to advance aged you know i know so far he's defeated father time but at some point he's gonna want more help and i don't know if he looks at that core says that he has the adequate help to get there especially after this past season when you look at you know philadelphia you've got two young guys in joel embiid ben simmons who both have had you know injuries in the past which you have to consider but their their their legs are young and you have a longer term couple of building blocks there with them and then when the lakers i mean they've they've been slowly building towards this free agent recruitment for a long time in getting young guys like lonzo brandon ingram a cow kouzmin you know they have young assets that you can either have with lebron or they compared to those guys and try to get another star you now so really for lebron i think to me me those were three teams that i looked at you know as potential fits for him yeah i think it's interesting you look at lebron and i agree that really makes sense ben simmons is also with a rich paul who is lebron's agent so there's a connection there i'm surprised that i'll be mentioned more because i do think it's a great fit and it does fit lebron's ammo where he goes to these younger teams that have a wide open championship window you know when he went to miami the first time people were expecting them to be a contender for you know six seven eight years as they made it very clear to us in that pep rally when he goes back to cleveland dwayne wade was older chris bosh was had some injuries them wasn't the same player he goes back to cleveland to play with kyrie irving when you went back they had andrew wiggins and they made a trade for kevin love he goes these teams that are younger and have a wide open window so philly does fit that now maybe he looks them and says there too young and maybe you know feels like the age gap is too big but i don't think that's the case this is the team that if he joins them i think they're in the finals or you know at the very least a seven game series of boston for sure i think it'd be would be a lot of fun to me the biggest thing when i look at billy if he joined with them who's the primary bowl hand or between him and simmons does can't can't play off ball while exactly that's why think you know we we saw like a bit of an adjustment when he first joined with the dwayne wade in miami so that while i can see certain people questioning that in how that would fit either point to what happened with miami when he was able to work it out with dwayne wade at the end of the day challen is always going to win out.

"The last year of his deal at that point you know russell westbrook is obviously entrenched is the franchise guy it's a really depends on on what pg wants if he wants to go close to home if he believes the russell was an he can form a tandem as long longterm core consisting success in oklahoma city personally you know i'm not sure you know you saw what happened last year with carmelo anthony in the fold in all those guys didn't necessarily pan out the way that they had all hoped so you had that experience ready natty look for greener pastures possibly in la i could see it now we'll get to lebron james in one second but i do wanna ask you this if lebron goes to los angeles does that help their their chances of getting paul george or does that hurt their transfer getting paul george do you think he wants to go there and be the main guy or would he want to go there to team up with lebron you know in your opinion i think any any player on the league would love to play with lebron james because of the way he plays the game he's a star player that makes his teammates better and he's clearly a willing facilitator so from that perspective yeah maybe in an ideal world any guy who's a free agent that goes elsewhere wants to be the guy but you really can't complain when you get lebron and the other thing i'll say about lebron's free agency you know i think it's gonna be really interesting to see what player not mean lebron james 'cause i don't think lebron is making the decision at twelve oh one july one who takes advantage of the other teams with cap space and agrees to deal earth you know because as we mentioned there's going to be drier a salary cap this year you may see i don't wanna say an average guy but but somebody may be outside the box like if you remember a couple years ago timothy moscow was the first guy to agree to deal now i don't i don't know who would have necessarily foreseen that but that is kind of what i'm looking at for for this free agency 'cause who's going to be that guy at at twelve o one that kind of agrees to something that's maybe a little bit outside box yeah yeah regarding paul george i i certainly think he or any other player in the league but would end should wanna play with lebron james because he's a willing facilitator yeah i think the fact that paul georgia's five years younger helps too he just turned twenty years old you could go to los angeles and team up with lebron james and then eventually it could become your team you still you still could you know be the man eventually you can kinda get both the best of both worlds there and you make a good point you know two years ago it was too iffy moscow two or three years ago i think it was tony snell last year that was the first guy that signed with this summer with so few teams having cap space you know there's a number of agents and players that are gonna jump at that and try to be that first guy to take a deal before the couch has gone that makes a lot of sense then i'll be interesting we could see more you'll see done on july first than usual or at least earlier in free agency teams agreeing to terms just because there's not a whole lot of options out there it's not like you guys are weighing six seven eight options a could be.

"Last like mock draft i had i had mentioned that they believe that strong chance to land him in free agency and you know even more so if they passed on muhammad bomb which they did it would signal the team would try to go all in on trying to get a guy like demarcus cousins of someone of that calibre at the center position so when you look at the pelicans specifically you mentioned about anthony davis anthony davis aside if you're the pelicans you don't wanna lose a guy like causing that his talent when you can always try to flip him down the road as trade asset and you know they're not they're not going to be able to track the free agent per se with with the way their salary cap situation as you know equally with that said wouldn't wallin's bringing back rajon rondo i think is also something that not a lot of people are talking about is heavily but i think that bringing back rondos equally important to the success of that team he had a great he had a great effect on anthony davis you know they almost had their version lob city with two of them and there's something to be said for having playoff rondo of for team lighten wallin's you sure jrue holiday move the ball a little bit more become more score so when i kinda put all of that in the patna stirred up i'm looking for new orleans to pony up in try to bring back cousins because you really can't replace him yeltsin mentally will you don't have the flexibility to do it so you're you're kind of leveraged in a sense where you have to put your best foot forward to bring him back if you don't you lose pretty much a tremendous asset for nothing despite coming off the injury so the last thing i would say about that is you know with your other question is the injury going to hurt him ill give maybe a little pause or concern but ultimately i still think he's gonna get paid just based on the leverage of the situation at hand yet the fact that dallas in draft the center in rick carlisle even said you know we have free agency we're going to be able to dress that need in free agency and i do think they're going to make run at the markus that's huge for for him because it does even that second team so he's not you know the pelicans aren't bidding against themselves he's going to be able to you know have a market and have an art team he could potentially flee to so i think that was big for him and we'll see if he if you choose dallas with new orleans if the pelicans can't resign him they don't really have much room to make any kind of moves or make any kind of improvement so that's going to be really difficult for them and i could see that leading to anthony davis being upset and then from there there you know obviously we heard teams like boston and philly and these teams are interested in davis and obviously they would be because you so special i think that could be really bad for the pelicans now i want to ask you about two guys that we touched on briefly let's start with paul george do you think he will go to the lakers or will he stay with the thunder and is there any other team how to shot at him i mean philadelphia has the second most cap space in the league but it seems like we're just hearing lakers and thunder is there any other team in the mixture you know i look a poll georgia's situation i think you really have to look at the los angeles lakers especially based on his roots you know other than that philadelphia i think would be really intriguing because they could certainly use a guy that mentioned earlier on the wing who can be a difference maker with that said though i don't know if they're gonna use philly moore's leverage or if it substance you know certainly you do have the on their carmelo's gonna be in.
