Did Boston Celtics Overplay Their Hand?

"Boston. Overplay its hand. There were a lot of reports in the hours. Leading up gordon hayward signing that the celtics and the pacers were discussing a sign and trade gary washburn over the boston globe. He suggests that the pacers were willing to throw in miles. Turner the celtics water a miles. Turner plus package whether it's miles. Turner and tj warren or miles turner and victoria depot. That that that celtics package seemed to highly unlikely to be something the pacers would go for. Tj warrant is coming off a monster performance in the bubble and victor oladipo for all his injury issues. last year is still an all star level player. You don't give up to players of that caliber to get a player. That play like gordon hayward frankly so the celtics. They didn't walk away with nothing because they do have tristan thompson. Now they do have jeff teague. But i can see jeff how miles turner would goodness celtics uniform. And the guy is a three point shooting mobile shot-blocking big man. He's not perfect. He's been called soft before there's questions about positional fit. But something tells me brad. Stevens could do well with versatile. Big man who can shoot three pointer. I i just. I wonder if we'll look back on this in a year and wonder if the celtics overplayed their hand because miles turner in addition to all the things i said he's got a reasonable contract by nba standards anyway. Eighteen million dollars per year over the next three. What do you think of that. Do you think there's a chance the celtics overplayed their hands here. I don't know. I don't think so. Crass t taking a slightly different tact on it. Because i wasn't all that a or the whole idea of only getting mile turner back in the deal. I understand everything you just said But the celtics certainly just made a a decision that that's what they were looking for excitement. Lucy gordon hayward elsewhere without getting any say return on. I don't mind that trying to get a little bit more in it. Not working out for them and again. I'm hearing all your points what you're saying about mouse. Turner but that's something maybe dearly age his staff. I'm not saying you're gonna go out and find another mouse. Turner application that production with a couple of different players here and there and whether it ends up being some kind of combination of daniel thais and looking down the bench and seeing what happens off from that point I just wasn't sure that you know. Look indiana if you really wanna gordon hayward i think you had to force them to really make you pay for it and i don't say that do would you come down to it. The pacers were willing to give up that much and so that sure indicates how much that they really wanted. Gordon hayward i'm fine with the celtics student what they did now. You could be ultimately correct. They may regret not adding that kind of player. Especially we get into the playoffs split I agent it is staff are more than willing to let that ride. It see if they can't come up with that kind of a similar player through the course of use it a couple of different players and seeing what they can do at the trade deadline. Yeah they did get tristan thompson. Which is exactly what they need in on that front line. They've got the more athletic up perimeter shooting floor spacing kind of guy. You've got robert williams who is athletic shop locked they didn't have the physical rebounding tough guy. And that's what tristan thompson is brings championship experience to that team which i think will be a valuable addition and jeff teague is fine. He's not a starter anymore. But you're not asking him to basically kemba walker insurance down there in case kennedy's to take time off that knee injury so it wasn't. It wasn't a failure of an off season for boston. I just. I wonder how we look at this this summer. The summer this fall we look at a couple years

Boston - Report Details ‘Heated Confrontation’ Between Marcus Smart And Jaylen Brown, Who ‘Needed To Be Separated’

"Air down to Oh, they have a huge game three tonight against the Heat. Their season rests on it because, of course, no MBA team has ever come back from a 30 Siri's deficit. And it's time to see you. The Celtics are. Of course you read the reports. The athletic had the story on Friday. Postgame blowup falling game to Marcus Smart, Jalen Brown having a heated confrontation inside of the locker room they needed to be separated by their teammates. They then talked it out with Jason Tatum and Kemba Walker and Bride Stevens's room around one in the morning agent which Morales give ESPN had that is well yesterday. So this is a turning point for the Celtics and Are they going to fall apart or just going to be a rallying cry for them? Because there is one thing that's for certain the Celtics are a team right now. That can't close their close, but they can't cause it struggled to close against the Toronto Raptors. And they've struggled mightily to close against the Miami heat in games one and two of the Eastern Conference finals. And that is the reason why they're currently down, and that extends To the sidelines next since the coach Brad Stevens. You talk about Mike Budenholzer and some mistakes he made with the Bucks. Brad Stevens, also struggling to close and adjust to Erik Spoelstra and the Heat. So is this a Celtic seemed, is falling apart. Or is this a turning points?

Boston Celtics Blew It In Game 1

"The Western Conference finals is on Friday night game one of the Eastern Conference Final Scowl was on Tuesday night and that was a fantastic game in the eastern conference. It was a back and forth affair it looked like Boston. Had IT. Scale, the Celtics controlled most of the game up behind a thirty five, twenty, three fourth quarter including a big Jimmy Butler corner three it was a tight game heading overtime and then in in overtime scale is a fantastic finish with Boston's young star Jason Tatum having the ball driving the WHO for a game tying dunk that was blocked at the rim by tremendous defensive play by Bam at a bile. Just think of this. That that play by Bam I don't I don't know like the Lebron block comes to mind. But from a playoff standpoint man that was a big time block I think I think that blocked will be seeing for a long time to come over and over and over again on the highlight package, but you know by. The Celtics to me really blew this game. They came out with the right mindset of playing basketball the right way with force and purpose and moving the basketball, and then they just thought was too easy and they let Miami back in Miami, you know built up a six point lead in the Celtics again in the third quarter a stark afford quarter build another lead up to fourteen points in this lead now and Miami. Just completely chipped away very to me a very, very disappointing style of play from the Celtics I don't if you. WanNa, beat the Miami Heat and it's not like you shouldn't do. You should know this going in you got to move the basketball and the Celtics a trot around talking about we gotta move the ball. We got to share it when we moved the ball run stoppable and then they proceed when they get a fourteen point lead moving the ball, they go on and play isolation for the last ten minutes of the fourth quarter. I thought I thought a not a I don't want to call an embarrassing performance but I really thought it was. On characteristic for them to play that style against the heat team which you know going in, you cannot play isolation basketball against the heat you have to put those guys on the move. Yeah, you do you have to share the ball you have to move it. Boston. Look good throughout much of the game scall- especially in the second half on the third quarter looks like they took control and into the fourth quarter. What Miami made the big plays down the stretch a mentioned Jimmy Butler corner three in Bam's big block at the rim on the Celtics side sidescale some of their young wings in particular played very well Marcus smart was terrific. Yet twenty six points. He made six of thirteen threes. A Jason Tatum Jalen, Brown were. Solid almost got. One of the things that I think has a lot of people including this guy himself scratching their head that is Celtics Point Guard Kemba. Walker you really struggled scale on Tuesday night. He was just six for nineteen from the floor one for nine from three, and after the Game Kemba Walker said, I'm just playing terrible to be honest I just have to be

Thrilling Raptors and Celtics series heading to a game 7

"I want to switch gears. Now to the Toronto Raptors game versus the Boston Celtics obviously, it was gained six I really thought the Celtics were closed. One out. There are a lot of questionable calls this game specifically at the end of regulation there was a no call on a Kemba Walker left and I was clearly a foul, the Raptors one, one, twenty, five, the one, twenty, two in. A double overtime game to push this series to seven games. The best player was Kyle lowry man played fifty three minutes got thirty point three, hundred, thirty, three points, eight rebounds six assists absolutely incredible employed twenty-one Norman Powell had twenty three. He had a big and one after a steal one of the big places the game on the Boston Celtics side Marcus Smart. Twenty three he's been electric lately. Jaylen. Brown continues to improve after that bad game two games ago. He's at back to back bounce back game thirty, one points, sixteen rebounds and two assists Tatum at twenty, nine and fourteen and nine almost twenty nine point triple double ties with eighteen and seven Kemba. Walker was really the only no show for the Boston Celtics, tonight. At Five, points seven assists to eleven from the field and fifty one minutes. Only five points that's abysmal for Kemba. Walker. Especially going into team that I don't really necessarily think somebody that can guard him a guy like, Caldera. Maybe for advance leak got the assignment a couple of times and a couple possessions I understand that but I don't know. Big Win for the Toronto Raptors I really do believe this game simplicitas if I told you from the beginning of the series of toss up obviously the Celtics went up to all Toronto responded to go to tie it to to Boston got a big game five victory I thought that would really seal the series I thought the Celtics would win tonight the close up at the rafters just won't quit man they won't die one of the scrappy EST teams in the NBA. One. Of the best defensive teams than the to hold a team to what only one hundred and what twenty two points in double overtime keep in mind in double overtime. That's impressive. That's playing. Basketball essentially more that's playing what? No about five quarts of basketball the hold somebody to one hundred, twenty, two points is impressive stuff. Can they get it done and gained seven? I'm not sure I'm still going to have to take the Celtics I. Think the Celtics probably should have won this game I thought for a majority of the game. They were the better team and again that no call and Kemba Walker at the end of regulation was a brutal. No call I thought two free throws, and then obviously maybe Toronto a game winner I game tire and not sure. Again Kemba Walker should have gone two free throws at the end of the game. My opinion was a close one but all is fair in love and war the referees for pretty much every game are always going to be considered bad right. Every single playoff game fans are going to have a disagreement with it but specifically, that can no call that was poor that was a bad call.

Morven Williams doubtful is will impact content and is also out for the Milwaukee Bucks for Beantown. We see who Boston's missing Kemba Walker's probable as his Marcus Smart, so they're not missing anybody tomorrow. That's why Boston looks a little bit inviting their plus the five points almost looks a little bit too inviting. So I want to see what happens. I certainly would only consider Boston in this game. We'll see what happens. Maybe we'll see the line. Come down on tomorrow as we have a 3 30 Pacific. Uh, scheduled tip off, so Hey, I Sometimes it looks too easy when you see a number like this because you get to Milwaukee. Yeah, they want to get the number one seed for the reason I mentioned earlier. They're probably well, maybe watches and not so much as in the Western Conference, where, uh, the top seed will. It's a team that very well be fatigued. It could very well be Washington I mentioned in the East is in the night. See there the on ly team that could possibly Eliminated by Brooklyn, Orlando, But they may also finished more than four games behind the eighth seed in that that's the case. Then there is no playoff, so Milwaukee might not get to play attire team. But certainly Milwaukee will be a team that I'm expecting to use this as a warm up period. I expect the honest won't play. Extended minutes in this game. Boston, of course, already in the playoffs, But I think here, why not expect a close game?

That's Marcus Johnson here with us on the Zach Yelp show. Marcus appreciate the time How you doing? I'm doing bills. Everything is no good. All can play good benefits in basketball family from your lips to God's ears. Can't wait to see what's gonna happen in the N B. A bubble. I saw video back in February, You were wearing a Kobe Bryant jersey and you actually threw it down in your road. I'm still dunking at 64 years old. Have you been dunking at all during the pandemic? Or was that a one time thing at 64 district Cream donuts, Bad eye. You must have been nervous, right? Well, every year on my birthday, I do a dung just to see if I could still do it. I didn't plan on doing it this year. Just chill out at my son's a SIA. All over social media. They have got to do it contingent to the one in Sydney one in with that inside, And so, of course, I did a couple of warm up to feel pretty good and And we decided absent phone brought up two tackles.

You have to do one more 65 years old. I gotta pay the bed after that. I don't blame you. I don't. I can't even dunk right now. I can't imagine being able to dunk when you're in your sixties. Marcus Johnson here with us on the show. When we look at this MBA restart. We know that the Bucks are the best team in the league. From a record standpoint right now they're going to be the number one seed in the Eastern Conference. The's eight games inside of the bubble. What do you look for out of them where they could really ease themselves back into playing shape? The annex a great question. I was just kind of pondering that looking at the books. Play that scrimmage against neworleans the other night and You know, I just don't think that teams should put too much into the eight. Feeding games. It's a gradual buildup. You want to be planned your best basketball. Obviously when, when the playoffs start. This is such a weird. Praise the different type of experiment. Probably guys. And so, um, you know, see positives from the brother. I've seen not good things about in terms of Kind of fighting since, um, some difficulties against the product in here tonight, but, you know the season games Because boom Jose lost compete. He's gonna want these guys to come out and and just so effort show competitive competitiveness from Paris. But I'm not sure about the ones. The won and lost record is important. At this stage of the game. It's all about kind of a slow, gradual buildup. I've been exploding wants to play all secure here. When you look at the team from last year to this year. What do you see is the biggest difference as they even got better from what they were last year, which was impressive. Well, I mean, ways that it rest values that they're so what he has done that He's given Chris Middleton a breather at defense. Can't Chris I was just looking up Christian defensive record 107th overall, 22nd ranked small forward LeBron and collide As I said at the top. But Chris doesn't have to get all that energy trying to beat this Great three and the win. Clare and I could focus on his office and I was a result becomes one of seven or eight guys who was Trying to suit you both 20% from the three point line, stick to the set plus from the field and monitor it from the people that I think a 20 point today. Yes, I think that's direct benefit to Chris Middleton. Eric Bledsoe also, let's not forget him, Master. He struggle big time last couple of years in the playoffs and honestly, stuff a big farm of the playoffs. Uh, this year, he seemed to be a lot more comfortable in his basketball scared now. It is kind of getting a late start based on tested positive and them in quarantine and all that stuff. How quickly he could kind of get back into a rhythm and flow going to be a big difference. But today I think this team has gotten even better, but local tradition of Robin Has really been a great great move. But John forced our president breaking Robin Lopez, and now we've got two bent beak gets standings and leave so I think the defense has been even better than the great detective team from last season. Marcus Johnson here with us it Zaki help show on CBS Sports radio doing a little bubble breakdown on the Milwaukee butts nationally. The big question about Chris Middleton is. Can the Bucks win it all with him? Be in the Bucks. Second best player. He's a two time All Star. Give me the local feel on that. Our people still concerned locally about Middleton be in that number to peace and winning the championship this year. Right here is where you go. I could go to a barber shop in the hold of the brothers give Ah, little about depended on Chris have the huge games but In terms of inside basketball people, people that have watched Chris closely like myself. I really believe that Chris, it's all about his confident being an all Star to the second consecutive D up really? Helps his belief in himself as being one of the elite players in the league and kept in one of the shooters in the league. And you couple that with the fact that he comes back, he's getting guns for arms and get this definition I've never seen before. His body status. Probably way dog looks really good, really in great shape of the Kalpoe talked about his explosion and bounciness coming back after the four months off was really, really surprised. So he's really putting the work that during this time off to come back and make himself I've been so on. But with president mentally I think that way you get tomato last year, the average with just 14 points in the field, and he left. How Laurie, pending for a big cheque of those minutes in that six game lost to the crap. You have to be enough to love. So you've got a lot to prove, but I think Based on what I'm looking at changes of his body where he is physically brave is right. But I think he's ready to make that statement. When I look at the Eastern Conference, I really do fully expect Milwaukee. To get to the finals. They were in that one seed spot last year did not get there When you look at the Eastern Conference this year, who's the biggest challenger for the Bucks when the season resumes tomorrow night? It's really interesting. You get him some. I think three really legitimate. Even the Miami that mix also, you can't count out exposure and then the butler as your lead gap, but I think there's still a little bit godly hero of none. And guys like that. And then he began by making just a little bit young and that, Betty, but I really believe that Celtics man. I mean, people talk about the Raptors, who I respect about. Nick Norris is a great coach. Brad Stevens was great, but one through four in terms of scoring and issues and problems. You know Jason Taylor planted Kemba Walker is the number one option. That's two through four group these guys to produce and I think about taking on like the game, and that's the most since that Golden State a couple of years ago, but most just like second most 1995 in terms of looking for and then when Gordon Hayward is your fourth option, going going home. What is your fourth option? And then we talk about a container my greatest been, but then this Dylan Brown watching his footwork. Watching the lip bruised stands the finishes in traffic. He's a guy that could be a real problem for team like the book had been. The wild card would be market smart. Distant Jabba, even though Marcus Smart Sixthree export out of 16 11 Marcus Smart office of players and we know how much she just underneath their skin. And so he's a guy that has given me honest as much trouble as anybody scoring effectively and officially against it, So I said that and then the two big catch I mean the pick and roll for five hours straight that Boston life's run. Those two guys found business cancer, pounded it inside a greatjob getting into the paint and score of them that I'm not gonna puke my shot and roll that movies have private medical himself. I really believe that Celtics to me that they're not deed. I think both those four score that they have been a lot of pressure on the Milwaukee ways that do the Middleton. To defend at a high level every night in order to be a minute in a series.

"kemba" Discussed on Celtics Beat

"Guy like Lebron. James and Anthony Davis you look you look at G. Mountain La A. With the Lakers. They're going to be able to lean on those guys, maybe even more than they would have irregular postseason. Those, guys also might be a little bit more rusty than would be irregular postseason because they haven't had enough time. You know as an older player who knows maybe Lebron takes a little bit too warm up. in there's many other players out there. That could happen to, but. That's the only difference that I see is really that teams might be able to rely on their top players more to play more minutes. because. They're not at the tail. End up a really long arduous season. I think Brad Stevens is probably going to do that I. Envision in eight-man rotation of. Of, close to twenty minutes, and then maybe a couple of other guys in some spot minutes around there, obviously not owning a play eight guys in in in a game it might happen. in a must win game seven situation, but I think that some other guys are going to trickle in there for a couple minutes each game Maybe just for some spot minutes. Someone gets in trouble and whatnot. But I really do think he's GonNa lean heavily on those top seven or eight players for really high majority of minutes, and this is you know given that we hope the Kemba? Walker can make it through those types of minutes that if he. Maybe someone else makes it in there and get some more time. That's why I wanted to go next. Brad doesn't seem to like the word worried or concerned. But how should we feel about where things stand Kemba Walker right now with an injury that even after basically four months off, and not being able to do anything but kind of work out on his own, and try and get that bothersome knee back on track this dates back to mid January, and he's still feeling the effects of it. Yes, so what I've been telling people who have asked me about this is number one..

Part of the Earth are going to become more or less uninhabitable this century and serious water and food shortages will come along with that. I mean this is nothing else but what anyone who gets anyway. Nissim Sci. He's starting to tell us Now then the question would come. Kenneth fiction serve that what can fiction do Without saying the same thing over and over but what what to do with that was really interesting to me was what would the people I grew up with. I love And also people who weren't exactly like the people I grew up with. How are we all going to be with this? What he's going to happen to to quite the people I really know once serious privation serious shortages dot to happen all around us. There's one story at the end Bunka which goes into that. We'll come to that one but there are other sorts of ends in mind here. The gained the a period in your life The end of communication is another one. That comes up. So let's delve into some of these stories and hopefully it won't be all that ominous Because there are some fascinating things here you did. The first story is called scouts. Were you ever a boy scout? I have to go ahead and say that I was a boy scout. I was a boy scout in the nineteen seventies I was very. I was particularly bad at sports which were an Australian boy his special problem but one thing I could find do with me was put me in cub scouts. And that work that worked I was especially bad at what we in. The nineteen seventies was called foot clinic Stood there disconsolate. A very small boy. Seven or eight years old in the middle of big muddy oval. And all I wanted was people might remember this. You GotTa be game at the end but for me it really was standing around in an hour on a on a baddeck not understanding really what to do with the football. I remember years ago. Michael Looney telling the story that when he was boy out in the country he was sort of Eilly united and confused by football. What you were supposed to do when the ball came down to woods him he picked it up. Held it to his chest and ran through the goals. Naturally as as one would. But it's a right of passage in some ways you know learning the not earning the badges miss but at what point do you sort of. What will does it come to an end? If we want to talk about ending but you transition the development there what was I suppose one of the things that got some pythons about being a scout? I mean they certainly some comedy as well but what was what was maybe saddle. Poignant upbeat about being a scout in the seventies wars you were participating in the system in. You didn't exactly think about lock these you'll participating in a system that was actually dying all around you which was the old British USTRALIAN loyalty. Oh British Astrid Unite. The revolt was valuable. Said they weren't sort of nineteen seventy seven nine hundred seventy eight nine hundred seventy nine a NI- uniform saluting the flag And trying to be sort of good junior soldier. Boys in a Y. Or at the very least the kind of good boy that you would have. That Biden Powell know if people remember Lord Biden Powell the founder of the Scouting Movement. But if you go back and look at scouting for boys it's the idea of kind of purposeful cleanliness in a little boy. That's also always turning into the effort to sort of locate and destroy aliens. But Tom and I don't mean I don't mean from outer space I mean the ones we leave this a militarist element. This is it. So it's it's playing soldier but it's also got an idea of self theirself idea of self control in it. There's a list of things that are good boy does that a scout does a scout prepared but a scout is also sort of honest in a tainted in some ways and I don't mean to mock all of that hopefully the thing about that stories. It's not all pissing from a high on the scouting movement. It's getting to something. Which was that? There was something in that I mean. I know we feel like this a lot now. But there's something in that old idea of self control. Which is such a daily on fashionable idea. Now the scouting movement held onto a part of it. But of course to us. It just looks ridiculous that you would wear your little uniform and your little hat and salute a flag on a Tuesday night. It's not so much ridiculous. One eventually which happens in the story eventually grows out of it yes and reevaluate says you grow older so it has its purpose in its place but as you say a lot of traditions a dying as well and they've got a reinvent. I mean the notion of a boy's group alone today. Isis audience changed another thing. That's changed the royals. You've got him on August news lead. There is an incompetent. Monarchist Focus Group pretty early in the and that comes out of the Scout Story too. Which is it goes to the whole idea of the Shia strangeness of trying to make an England down the bottom of Asia which we really did try and do. I went to London for the first time. Not that long gone about ten years ago. I had that thing that many many strengths must have had. Which is the shock of recognition that once you get through cock fosters on that train and start to going to London accord. It looks exactly like Hawthorne it looks. Exactly like Moldovan down to the last and you begin to understand why that you had before that we that that the F. It was really just to make these places again. The idea of Kemba well below Laos below. Papua we really tried for that and again I think one of the things. That's hopefully interesting about growing up. In the seventies I think the seventies there was a was a real transition time where that old idea that we could somehow Cape together an England down here began to break up and wash away and so and then then I mean then I think plenty of people listening to this would know this. But in a way the bill for that wasn't paid until the nineteen ninety s in the nineteen nineties. We had that exuberant Tom where we thought well. No no money in this and we'll just be Australian. It's all we can let England going by the nineteen ninety by the Howard years. You had the understanding that it was actually going to be something that we felt a lot more Sarah about a lot more angry about and we're going to punish somebody else but we still had politicians bringing back knighthoods and such luck. And that's you that's interesting but that was what was interesting about the Abbot Attempt. In about the time of that story about the top of that royal story where it really much to light now and even people that you wouldn't expect or the I thought the idea of Sir Prince Phillip and the first strategy night. All that's right it will be Prince Philip. Did you give Edinburgh that? The whole country in two thousand fifteen couldn't take that But just as Australia was reinventing itself oil or imagining its identity. Which is a growing sort of evolution. The monarchy is sort of caught in the same bind. Harry and Meghan done Mike it into the story necessarily only slightly but they trying to establish their own identity in a new ish. Can you hold on to the monarchy? This is where I think I mean. I think this is still true. This little against what I just said but I still think it's a strain schizophrenia. What you would think of is the oldest. Dr Steele holds a lot. Hold on a lot for monarchy and foreign idea of England that still does persist in one of the places it does possess these in those people in that royal family in the Queen and to some extent. Now I mean we tried Diana but now much more and William and Kate but the thing that Tom the thing about that he says it's just getting hotter and hotter for any family any group of individuals to actually be able to carry off what you need to do to be a barely successful enough royalty in the face of the sheer amount of virulent attention that the entertainment system is GonNa WanNa put on you. It's it's pretty much going to be impossible to be monarchy in the next fifty but also the the monarchy speaks to a tradition that goes back centuries which hasn't necessarily evolved and changed with the Moore's that go on today which is it's appeal. Which is the thing we desperately hope for that. You could point to any one group of things and say you want change will you? You'll stay the same. You promised The problem is is that as you say with them. What Harry and Megan is it. They couldn't take the deal that will often because the deal starts to get so strange which is listen. You'll be a representative of what is good in a sense. He's more self control. This idea that we're after over and over again but at the same time will pretty much persecute and you will be at you all the time. You'll open your door in the morning and hundreds of us where we tried to watch you and I I can't understand. I don't get a sense of whether this is to their credit or not. They just refuse that. Were like this is so awful. This is more or less like a kind of strange it privileged. But it's also a persecution and can leave. Just leave

Bet Did all right for the country boy. I play football. Play quarterback When a quarterback call plays from the attendant Knoxville College in Tennessee? I'm Alma Mater and I'm still in the blue. I'm on that board of directors there and what sparked their initial interest in journalism and The newspapers Emma wouldn't do the newspaper hometown the only time they wrote about black people when they were suspected of crime committed crime plan football it being an entertaining and I thought they were so many other stories out there. It'd be told and since they won't go and tell them. I decided I had to be the person to tell them now. What is interesting is that I could get a job my first job out of Knoxville. What is that sports illustrated so I can get a job at Lodges Sports magazine in the world but couldn't get one in my hometown. Newspaper reminded me that every time I go should be sending a thank. You note saying thank you for not hiring me so I can go out and see the world but that meant that meant a lot. I mean that could not get heart my hometown paper and And whenever I go back I remind them how Tuscaloosa be. I was back a couple years ago and they gave me a key to the city then told me it was fine but you didn't open anything. And secondly I wanted to the bank and combination to the vault. But they haven't done that yet. Former editor in chief of emerged magazine. Tell us about that. Publication well merge was a news magazine that was published for ten years up to two thousand. I was editor of the last seven years. In fact we have a book coming out in July call. The Best of emerge at Ballantine books are published in the New York arm of Random House and it has the best collection of Of our stores over the years so it was very different and quite frankly one day soon expected starbuck and what was some of the highlights of of that publication well We did a lot of things and we're proud. We got the most attention because the way we Took on Clarence Thomas Random as the amount of not hit and they may ramp two years later. The Lawn Jockey for all right and That's the kind of thing that you've seen single Clarence Thomas. Today people mentioned that though. That's that's not a lot of stories. I'm I'm most proud of. I'm most proud of Australian Kemba Smith. Who WAS ARRESTED? Twenty four and give it a twenty four year mandatory sentence. I've been Amman mine of exit. Basically go over to the drug dealer. I mean the Fed said she neither Seoul nor use drugs but she was very attached ringleader. Who have been killed and We ran to cover stories on it and ran a couple of other stories in addition to that and Couple of years ago. She was pardoned by bill. Clinton in office and So we're real proud of that story. I'm proudest of is One of my staff members. I fortunately I feel vegetable about young since college lower. Hit a little little experience. Laurie Robinson was all right how she was on my staff and And it really shouldn't be up the whole Staffan certainly are and she's a graduate of Spelman in Atlanta and There was a allegation at Morehouse being raped. Spelman woman and only because laureate toby. She wanted to write a book about her experience. I suggested that she go back there to her alma mater right about that and then we've been home person experience with it and it was just one powerful story and those are the story. I mean a lot of store them reattached. But those are those are the real special with you on the immediate past. President of the American Society of magazine editors in the first african-american Elia and also not from New York. Right right they kinda you gotta be from New York and got to be life. Magazine's the worst newspaper in terms of diversity but They did in all fairness did let me president and it was indeed a Han and You know in fact. I'm coming from a black magazine representing the magazine industry so I was so pleased with that. Your current position as editor in chief of the National Newspaper Published Association. Give us a brief history of that organization and your responsibilities with black presses. About one hundred seventy six years old gotten around fighting against niches slavery and everything else. I have been here. Two years. Essentially is a federation of more than two hundred African American newspapers Most of them weekly and essentially what I do is provide news out of Washington and and National News as well For a member newspapers. And so we've pretty much such service. Washington bureau founders for audience. That aren't really familiar. That are not African Americans. Why has the black press particularly organization the two hundred or so Weeklies still viable in this country today. Well I wish having spent thirty three years journalism most of not into black press. I wish that the media was doing this job. And there'd be no need for the Black Press a Hispanic Women magazine but it but it is not doing. It does a terrible job and still a worse job. I think when I came to business thirty three years ago. So if you're going to get in order to be well informed you have to read from a variety of sources in the first place you know you just can't read just to Austin space when you just read just you know Dallas Weekly. Just can't you gotta read from different sources and so So would ask an American perspective gives you a different look at some of the same national issues and then he's going to be really inform. You need to reap the black newspapers and go out website. black press. Usa DOT COM

"Paul wants to be on a contender. I do think this can be a very positive experience because this is the kind of market archy where they pull something together and they're halfway decent. It'll be a lot of fun around there because what are they yeah. Dan Ages necks the introductory press conference Kevin Walter and his canter and so two funny. Let's as watch when we got done with the draft and we started our preparation for free agency. <hes> as we started planning for plan a <hes> our plan a was Uh Kemba Walker and his canter and we're very fortunate that they chose the Boston Celtics Bob low walkers and all star cat is pretty good but are you buying this plan talk. Were you watching their faces. I don't I think they bought this planet. Talk is a plan but it is not planning a and endangers defense bill all general managers spin they all do everyone does Darrow Maury. Did it Bob Myers. Does it everybody but few spin disagree jealously right. This is something we've been tracking three years. We know they wanted Anthony Davis and then they wanted Kevin Durant and on and on but one plan eight disappears playing because playing like that's the only thing no matter what the end result he is it becomes playing a once you get to the point of telling people about it and that's all he could really spend on this. This is not the way he started with this plan but I also think that semantically his argument is well. Once free agency started because was free agency started. They knew to carry Irvine wasn't going to be there. They knew that Al Horford wasn't going to be there. So what they're telling us is our plan is to dudes who aren't as good as the to do that. We had last year. Hey Good luck with that and that actually might be the most egregious like he told was that one's free agency started. This was our plan. They started planning for Free Agency back before. Even they got Kyrie Irving. This all started when they started amassing all the assets for Anthony Davis and then we know for a fact that they wanted wanted Kyrie Irving to go get Anthony Davis and then it went down the line but now we get to the situation where Kemba and his canter are the guys and I wonder. Is this a honeymoon period or is this the weird period after a bitter divorce because I don't even know how good they are going to be able to feel much longer because now they're gonNA have to show and prove that this can all be good again really quick so the question for Brad Stevens is what are you going to do Kemba Walker right. Are you going to put the ball in his hands and say go out here and make it happen and are you going to do things they get him. The ball early in the offense was just when he's most effective because Brad Stevens runs an offense. That's really good to have it in mid Major..

"They be good. That team was hanging in there being a play Campbell and just ham, basically when league Mont Ben really he played better, but he didn't. He didn't have a sophomore year out that I was hoping he would have here, Michael Kidd, Gilchrist is I guess a cool guy, but he's not nobody. He's a quality player, but that much more than that. And I'm not sure if he's the best fit for Kemba Walker type guy. No, Marvin Williams was more effective next to Cambodia than him. And then you, you draft the code as other he was allowed repick. I never saw a potential fan being an all star. You know, mouths bridges with a solid pick. And then you draft a PJ Washington, who I think would be good, if you still had a Kemba, but if you lose camp, I'm not sure if he's Washington is, you know, how effective he can be. I think I think that's what our shows great because me and you have such different opinions on a lot of stuff. Because when you're if you were front office, you're drafting for potential like this, you can maybe Sunday. I saw you know what my team right? Okay. The Hornets are. Crappy potential, so okay, let me I'm thinking history of drafting cody's hours, the fourth pick. Okay. Now that we're gonna cook onto the two thousand twenty twenty hindsight is telling y'all because I've been watching because basketball since I was seven years old. So these are the picks right out of them. Alex Len neurons in no will be macklemore can save. It's called poultry Burg, and then you get to CJ McCollum who end up being very good and the yacht as was fifteen. So this draft class on its own, was not good. That's fine. But a lot of a lot, a lot of these guys can play basketball and a lot of times when his NFL and NBA, especially because in MLB has minor league system, a lot of times the careers of these players go a certain way based on what they are drafted. You're one hundred per, so you look at a guy like you You wanna. wanna go back twenty thirty twenty thirty and you look at a guy like beta macklemore who went seven. He went to Sacramento at Thomas Robinson was the full fifth overall pick for them. They drafted Jim or what a lottery pig. That was the bad situation. Who knows if you put them next to Campbell would that could be? I would have one potential with that. Then call these other I told you I don't want to say, I told you I was saying when me and my almonds Watson is drafted. I even remember call my Cody Zeller four Cody is cool in college, but I mean Sheesh cody's were. Yeah, they're the worst draft and same in this decade. Right in front of the songs. But this new see that's why I hope that they break the car so PJ Wasser too, because we I automatically be like, oh, well, he's not going to be anything because he's playing for the Hornets and you know they got 'em MJ whose owns as not calling the shots, but he has a part in this. So I don't know the Hornets future. They're probably gonna be the worst thing that elite next year of Kemba Walker. And Jeremy lamb leaves, not probably they will be the worst thing in the league, I would guess unless you get a breakout from Dwayne bacon O'Malley mom, one of those guys step up with. You have to you have to lose half step up if you're If Kim..

"I'm actually surprised that doesn't happen more often because at the end of it when we're talking about our job because that's what that is for these NBA players. It's their job. Your goal is to make enough money so you can retire young. You're right. And when people retire at thirty five thirty six that's junk compare to the rest of the world. I mean my dad is going to be fifty soda, and he's still working. He got no plans to retirement. So same I plan on doing this like, even cultural trust me. Blue is going to be here. But it's this weird that you know making millions of dollars. And I know most of these people. To do it because they love the game. But the same time is more of a job at the end of the day came out like last year and said he doesn't wanna play thirty five. Exactly. Yeah. I think it's a Romana carry, but saying he want to retire when he's like thirty two. So this next, the vast, and quite honestly are cana- half. We believe it when you hear carrier because he so all over the place so pass about other things other than basketball he is. And what he also flipflops allot getting into carry Irvine. I'm gonna just come on and say this right now. I think Harry urban is next year is going to have the year. We thought it was going to have this year. I think the criticism, I think his his his moments of poor leadership. It just reflected on a whole Boston situation, and how he acted when leave in Cleveland, I think, don't take all of that reflect and come back and have a very strong year now of course, the height of the that season depends on where he goes. Yeah. Who is playing with and things like that. But in a sense of actually playing and compete, and I think we're gonna see a much better year. And I'm not I'm not really. I'm not really. So the career of and it's just like disappointed guy. I'm continue to say it. I think that Boston situation was very, very weird for all of them involved. And I kinda give all of them a past include Brad Stevens. I know a lot of people was kind of, like we were looking at him as one hundred top coaches, which was crazy. You know, I'm not saying he was ever like Gregg Popovich, even people was prematurely saying that, but I'm also not going to pretend like he just ain't shit. No more. In the same thing with other players. You think Jason Tatum abounds back? I think is good. Jaylen Brown and Jason Tatum. Can now be the focal point of it. You know, also lead into another topic on here, Kemba Walker. So funny is I n and Horford is gone. So I think Robin Williams, a young sitter that the draft last year can give more opportunity. And I think they just on on pace to have, you know, a better situation without Korean carry having a better solution without them. I always wanted this question, and I may have posed this question the all before. But as the okay we're gonna say different perspectives as a fan at attain. Let's say you're a fan of the Boston Celtics. They signed Kemba Walker. Right. That's. Is not a championship. Same there. Their playoff same. Right. They'll probably a four or five seats Beijing what they weren't here. You just basically subsitute, and Al Horford and Kyrie for Kemba that does probably doesn't equal more wins as a fan. Does that make you happy just to be a good team? But maybe not a great team is to type of famous is the fan doesn't understand that the viewpoint that you just gave. And then there's the the fan that's really in it. That knows. Yes. A big name. But does it equal to more one year? So as the fan that's like I guess, is a cat fan who would probably know how will we lost career, but we do we got another all-star bag AA, but I, I want to be happy because I know it doesn't equal to the win thing. So let's say for an office in your front office guy. Oh, we got Kemba Walker. We've got another guard that we can put up on the stand. You see Kimball walk jerseys..

Why the Lakers have interest in everybody right now some field de ngelo Russell will be a better fit. I don't know if he's the type of point guard, you need what LeBron Anthony Davis. I think you need a Kemba Walker. But Kemba likes to score. He need Kyrie Irving and dental LeBron. And the. Reunited peaches and herb tour out in Los Angeles. That's the type of point guard. They need they don't need a point guard. Who's a scored. I think that's why they didn't make a run Kemba.

They could renounce Terry Rozier, create a number that gets up to Kemba Walker max. But right now, Boston, and Kemba Walker are focused on each other.

Thirty points, we've seen career urban become all NBA player, Terry rosier got a nickname of being scary in the playoff playing in that system. So are you gonna pay Terry rosier the of money that you would pay Kimba Walker? No. So therefore, you go ahead and give the money to Campbell..

"Because here we'll start with Mark Stein before we came onto record on Tuesday afternoon. Mark Stein says the Celtics, I'm told are emerging as a stealth suitor for Charlotte Hornets, free agent, Kemba Walker. Boston's cap room situation is a fluid one, but the Celtics as Danny Ainge is acknowledged are weighing their various needs as we speak in both the back court and front court with Al Horford exiting. So here's what I'm wondering. It's like are we just going to look back on this as a twelve hour window where everybody talked them selves? Into the possibility of Kemba ending up in Boston, because it, it does seem like there are number of those little pockets where like everybody is looking at like the nets as a potential super team. And then a day later that changes and that, like, the, the Celtics I have no idea what direction they're going to go. Do you have any read on that particular situation? We'll my first street is Mark Stein's dune gray work. He's doing the Lord's work here, because the Celtics fans need some hope. Right. So if you sell some hope to the Celtics fans over the next few days like you should do that. You know, I mean it's like setting up an ice cream stand in the middle of July, like gopher so full kudos to Mark Stein with that one Kemba Walker should have a lot of suitors. The Celtics should want Kemba Walker. He's really good. They would have to pay him this crazy supermax money. Like Charlotte's going to have to pay him. Honestly, I would probably rather have him from a culture standpoint, then Kyrie Irving, you can make a strong argument at that would be an upgrade of that position if they lose kyri and bring in Kemba. And I think Campbell all along probably should have been getting more buzz as a major star in this summer's class than he did. And you know, much more comparable amount compared to kyri. I just feel like we're hearing, you know, twenty or thirty times more about kyri than we've heard about Kemba, but I think the question for Kemba is like what's the benefit of going to Boston if all Horford, it's not there, you know, it's marginally better than the situation in Charlotte, but not by that much. I mean there's still bad contracts on the books. There's still roster holes. They're going to have to deal with. You think Boston is marginally better than the situation in Charlotte? Yeah. I mean where are they going? They're gonna win a first-round series next year without Horford. Oh man. I, I can't get there. I do think that like the ceiling is significantly lower than it would have been had. They traded for Anthony Davis or even kept Al Horford. But I mean the situation in Charlotte, it's not even about Boston as far as I'm concerned, the idea of Kemba Walker going back to Charlotte is just like too depressing for me to really wrap around Boston's pretty darn depressing. If they don't have Al Horford, and Kyrie Irving. I mean I don't know like what's their core? Look like they got rid of Bain. So I thought was important piece for them. What's, what's their interior rotation? Look, like how many games are they winning aren't they lucky to scrape out forty five next year? Yeah. I mean, I think with Kemba in Boston part of what appeals to me there is that Brad Stevens would probably get like one hundred twenty percent of Campbell. Walkers production out of him because he's just done a really good job. Granted kyri is kind of the exception to the rule. But like he made Isaiah Thomas look about twenty to thirty percent better than. Actually, is he even made Terry Rozier look pretty decent and serviceable during that playoff run..

"Almost immediately after this happens Stein has a tweet that Mark sign of the New York Times says the Lakers are targeting Kemba now can walk over the sharp. Charlotte Hornets has been probably the most publicized free agent to be. I would say I mean obviously, he hasn't been busy playing basketball. So he had the opportunity, but there have been several interviews with Kemba Walker. Most of them of the variety of I my heart is in Charlotte. I would even take less to stay here. How quaint is it that Kemba Walker is at these, like camps, I guess. Yeah, when he was like an ambassador to the two two in Japan NBA issues in Japan or China and so an athletic reporter tracked him down. And he was just out front being like I don't want to stay in Charlotte so they want to be invented pretty recently. He got like someone caught him out like some sort of some event, some camp that he was holding. He's just out there, which kinda shows. The difference between an L A and some of these big markets in Charlotte where these guys are hiding right? Jimmy Butler is holed up in his Texas like home to anybody faced head to toe. PS gene gear Kemp is just hanging out. Whatever I. I hope for Kemba seek that I don't know. It doesn't really matter. I was gonna say, for canvas sake that she's able, he doesn't have to live this down, too much, basically, that if he decides to sign with the Lakers that he doesn't have to then go ahead and hand and be like, I'm sorry, Charlotte, you know, like things changed. And it's just he could have just said, look, I really want to re I've given Charlotte a bunch of years, and they've given me a bunch of trust, but I'm a free agent, so we're going to see what the offers are that would have been that would have been way worser. Instead, it was just like, you know, I left my heart in Charlotte. At now the Lakers might might Woohoo him, you know, he was a former singer in his New York days. Right. I feel like we're really because we've talked about a New Orleans Walker, which are literally, the pillars of Justin's existence. So only two interest. Do you like the idea say, like, do you like the idea of Kemba Walker being the third piece here? I think it makes a lot of sense. And I think it makes a lot of sense. If you can't get Kyrie Irving, because I think the bron-. Found like the perfect teammate for himself in Cleveland with Kyrie it just seems like at this point, what she needs the most or what he values the most is a guy who when he wants to take plays off, which he is prone to do quite often these days United, just as many middle aged men firm to do right now. There are few edits that I just got mail in and let Craig gains handle sounds good, just. He likes to just dump it off to a creator. Let him do his thing. And that's how he conserves energy Bronwyn, her said that piece, if I think two years ago, just about how he is so considered about how he manages his minutes in his time, and what he puts effort it and LeBron. And so that's he needs that, but he also needs a guy when he wants to dominate the ball to play off of him and Kyrie was perfect. And he was a point guard, but he was also like scoring point guard, and it was a really, really good three point shooter Kemba Walker is basically that he is among the best shooters in the league, I know his three print percentage was down this year. But he was also shooting at incredible volumes. I don't think that's like an accurate Rianne how good he is. I think he was thirty nine thirty eight in the previous two years..

"Retreat, Morgan Williams for Bradley Beal tomorrow, and this could all look different by the time. We revisit this in a week or two, but the the only other team I thought about is if the Knicks can somehow would Durant this July of it would be pretty fun to see them then turn around and find space for Kemba. Walker as well. Because I don't think that they're gonna get Kyrie Irving or somebody to play with Katie and and Kemba Walker back in Madison Square Garden reliving the biggies tournament every single day. It would be pretty great as well. But in general, it does seem like the Sixers are the best fit and make a lot of sense. If you were Kemba, what would you do would you just resign? And just be that guy whose like old school won t one franchise your whole career that love of the fan base. I never turn my back on them. Would you take the big cash out? Would you chase a title with Philly? What would you do? I would probably go chase the title in part because the way Kemba Walker has handled the last eight years in Charlotte has been so impressive and endearing that he's going to be kind of untouchable for life and beloved for life down there and Charlotte, regardless of what? He does this summer, and I like, I can't speak for Hornets fans. But I know if I was rooting for someone like a Walker and watching him like watching great gains v squandered repeatedly over the course of several years. I would say look be great somewhere else. We will always love you year. And I think he's got that kind of relationship with the fans there. So at this point like go, take your shot, if you can get max money somewhere else in a situation where you're going to be contending every year. Like see what you could do. I still don't totally believe that can book it could do this at the highest levels of the league in the playoffs. But I think everybody who watches these leak past games like wants to see that happen. Another possible team for next summer. What about the clippers? You know? They've got a an interesting situation there where could you play him with shea at the same time possibly. Maybe you move on from Beverly you've got a bunch of expiring contract you're going to have flexibility if you strike out on the list guys or even if you can get one, but then find room to to create too. Would Campbell be sort of like the face of the clippers going into next season? I mean, I could be a team that would have some interest there in terms of long term. I don't know. Are you ready to turn the whole thing over to share yet? I guess that's the question. And I would say no, I think we might be jumping the gun if we're factoring shea into max free agents, the clippers will or won't pursue. He's been really good and really fun to watch. But like he's probably a couple years away from really swinging anything in the playoffs. And so go the clippers. I can't wait to see what clippers free agency turns into because there are a dozen different possibilities for them. They could do a lot worse than camp. Right. I mean, obviously, they they're hoping for better in their mind. They're thinking, Katie hidden, right? But okay, what's that really going to shake out as if you wind up coming home with him? But that's a pretty good summer. All right, two final questions here. I from Scott who says I've never emailed in. But I couldn't pass this up. I'm up in Boston. This. Weekend and driving through the Longwood area telling my girlfriend about Andrew's Turkey and counter, right? As I finished telling the story, we see a family of Turkey's on the side of the road a minute later, we keep driving and are turning onto beacon street and two more turkeys are right there in the road. I guess turkeys are taking over Boston. And yes, thank you, Scott. We got a lot of a lot of feedback for people who said that Turkey's are relatively common in Boston. And it's seen a couple more in my years up there. I forgot that the part of the story that I forgot is that I wasn't. I was in the long area because at the time, I was dating a nurse. And I was dropping her off at work at six in the morning..

"This team squanders more amazing individual performances than I think any other team in the league, right? I mean going down the stretch against philli with sixty he outscored all of his teammates combined that game Andrew. And I thought he should've tried to outscore them by even more. Because anytime he did pass the basketball. If there was a six percent chance. Whoever got the ball was actually going to be able to score. I mean, the shots were barely even hitting the rim. Some guys weren't even able to get them up. I mean, it's kind of like a cliche to say, oh, he's like the adult and he's playing with a bunch of kids. But I mean, his teammates are just so rough and to be honest takes away from the whole experience because I just wind up feeling a deep sympathy when I watch him play that it's not exciting. It's not thrilling to watch the Hornets play even when he's going off the whole time. I'm just thinking of like can we get this guy a life raft and get him out of here? And by the way, I've criticized you for having that same feeling about Anthony Davis in the past where it's like. Hey, stop banging on the pelicans just appreciate what he's doing on the court. So I'm going to emit to some hypocrisy here. I mean, that's absolutely a very similar comparison. But that's how I feel when I watch Kemba. It's it's not a fun watch to me. It's like God. Like his whole career is going to go by the wayside. And he's going to be like the ultimate cult hero. Where only people who were like league pass junkies appreciated them because he spent six years toiling with just one of the worst collections of talent around him in the league. See I feel a little bit differently about Kemba, Charlotte and you hit on it at the end. They're like this is the perfect role for him. He is the league past cult hero right now. And I don't know if if you're paying Kemba Walker max money to be an elite starting point guard on a championship contender. I don't know how he would fare in that role. But as the like little giant who refuses to disappear in games that his team should be losing. He's. Fucking perfect and watching go off on these teams have been so it's been so much fun. And so I the question is where it goes from here. I mean, I was at a Hornets game a couple of weeks ago when I was doing that trae young piece for the magazine, which by the way, we need to talk about trae young at some point in the next couple podcasts because we just haven't had time. But but watching Kemba is relationship with the fans down there. He really does kind of breathe life into every single Hornets games. And it's really cool to watch the way he's kind of impre st- all of it because it would have been really easy for him to get pretty bitter demanded trait. I mean, look he could leave at the end of the season. He would be well within his rights to say trade me now I wanna contend, but he hasn't done that. And a great point his honor and integrity only kind of make. It sadder. I don't think it makes it sadder. I do think it's just a really cool thing to watch him down there. I wonder about when he he's a stand up guy. And I guess I'm getting to the point where it's like, okay. He's done right by them for long enough where let's try to get him onto one of these contenders. Right. I know the Philly fans are just salivating over him in terms of what he could bring to the table for them this summer. What do you think about that fed? Yeah. That's the one that I keep coming back to. And I mean that we didn't get to a question about Benjamin straight. But one thing that I've been daydreaming about is the potential for the Sixers to sign Kemba Walker this summer re-signed Jimmy Butler, and then trade Ben Simmons for Anthony Davis. This summer there is by three percent chance. But wouldn't that be insane? I kind of liked where you were going up until the depart where they got Anthony Davis because that's seems like a giant question, Mark. But I do think you could easily talk yourself into the idea that Simmons is not the cleanest fit and he wants to be his own star his own guy..

He he was trying and he was doing a lot of great post moves, and then Al Jefferson disappeared never to be heard. It might be Jefferson. It probably is because that's as we started off slow and then finish towards the all star game. Well, but it was just a little bit light. But that's, you know, the head MK g and they've kept him on, you know, it's almost like a we refuse to give up on L is number two pick when they could've taken Bill that year, and you know, defensively that guy, but he's never really shown any growth offensively. Don't forget about fat Boris DO. He was great. When the lowest winning percentage NBA history shirt and season. They went seven and fifty nine was on that team. Right. Yeah. Forget that. Yeah.

It was the the off season of the cap spike in him and bismuth Bamba. Who's also on the team got paid that year and. Air hero. Yeah. Those two guys along with Marvin Williams, MK G, and Cody Zeller paid more than Kemba. Lebron campbell. They went for fifty one in sixty points respectively. Right. We did this last time this happened where someone well. We guess we did it when some Jamal was flirting with the fifty. But we've had a lot of guys score fifty plus Blake curry Klay, Derrick rose Kemba and LeBron that's in order over fifty Kemba getting to sixty of course. We gotta get our next prediction. We've been no-one's hit yet. So just to refresh. Everybody's memory when we had that sort of little scoring explosion in the beginning. Who would be the next one? We said like after Korean Blake did it. We had this Li took Lillard Tassie. Ed westbrook. Trae you had Anthony Davis. And I and I stuck with Tim Hardaway junior who has said nice. So then we had some more the rose there and the Klay on November six we said, let's pick them again. You can't pick the same guys. Those guys are now off the board Lee took Tobias Harris.

"This your boss had high through the yes. Well, listen, I would say it's it depends on what your where your team is. Right. Like does it does it make sense for the Charlotte Hornets to pay Kemba Walker until he's thirty three for a team at clearly going nowhere. No. That's why I wrote in January they traded him last year and really got a big return for them. But again, you find the Lakers look for God to pair with LeBron or I'm one of these teams going into the summer looking for a star player. Turn one gyn. He will turn twenty nine in may. Yeah. I mean, look if it's me. Well, let me ask you this Nick who would you bet on better. Who would you be more willing to bet on our four year deal coming up Jimmy Butler or Kemba Walker? Who, but it's not a deal deal. Not. No, I'm saying if you're another team going to sign I don't think the Hornets should sign him. I think they should train them. They're the Hornets are going nowhere. They shouldn't traded. Anyway, they're going to trade him. Dare either. But I'm just saying if you're another team if you're another team has the option to say we could signed Jimmy Butler Kemba Walker say, you're the I don't know whatever the the nets right who wanna star player who who would you be who do you think you're better off? We end the walk which deals with better as in Brooklyn. It will go crazy. They would go crazy. Well, the Brooklyn fans at there are would you'll crazy walk into New York. Walk. Walk with an answer. Either. If it's me to me, I'm still taking Jimmy because Jimmy is one of the very best two way players in the league. But to your point and two Bs point regarding injuries. That is what is a refine you find one of these teams that has money, and that has space and can offer one of these extensions. Either one of these guys. I mean that to me I'm not as high aren't Kemba Walker not closes as to what you are. But the fact that he's out there that is huge in my biggest concern for Jimmy as somebody who's followed him since he came into the league is Jimmy can play at an unbelievably high level when he's healthy. But he misses a month every year in after all the wear and tear on those knees from all those minutes under tubes. How are those these get a hold up over the next four or five years? I've been we're going to see but Jimmy misses a month every season with a variety of. Different injuries. It's happened. The last few years when he's there he can really help when he's not he's not good for the team. So I would still take Jimmy because I I believe much more strongly. The Jimmy is a much more complete player who gets you closer. But Kimba Walker being on the floor is something that you can't take away from them. Although I think on a much better team with much better players. He's not putting up close to the production that we've seen him. I would say a couple of years there are general managers in this league. And they would never say this with their name attached to it. But they've said it to me without their name attached to it is that it's really hard to get difference making play in the play in a playoff setting from guy who six foot. Obviously, there are some outliers there. But that that's one of the things that Chris Paul has struggled with at times in his career. Yep. And you know, you people forget Steph curry actually has, you know, Steph curry significantly bigger than Kemba Walker. And Steph curry is the greatest shooter of all time, and he's perfected an ability to get a shot off over height the way he shoots he shoots on the way up. You know? I don't even think it comes down to play evaluation as much as it does can Charlotte. Tell whatever fans that it is getting I mean, what message would it send to them if they do not..

"So I'll let you say it again here for all the people. Go ahead. I think for the past two years he's been a better player than Kyrie Irving. Come on. Now. Come on to me. Who cares? What the numbers who you trust the came on the line? When a big game is on. What Kim Walker hasn't played in a big David years out of your mind? I don't think he played a couple of playoff games come on. I love you. But damn Kemba. Walker is not a better put here, I read Irving. No if coming walk up walkers played on the Hornets. How is he out of prove your point? You know, if Kyrie Irving was on the Hornets. Where would they be? Oh god. I mean, I don't I don't understand what the laughing because the Hornets have been a relevant team. We're Kemba Walker and do whatever is that. Right. But he can do whatever we woods. He's. System. Okay. I mean, listen, you can you can laugh, but again, you're you're not looking at you just look at the look at the dab at the end of the day. It's not up to Kemba Walker isn't the one deciding who's on his team. Okay. So understood honestly Walker on a bad team can do whatever he wants. All I the numbers are reflected. Okay. Listen, I think if you look at Kemba and the production he is put up and the ability has to shoot off the dribble from thirty to thirty five feet now almost like to the same range as like staff at this point. I think he's been an unbelievable player. They're playing on a team that yes, he hasn't been able to play a huge gaze because the team stinks and has been has been completely mismanaged. That's not to me. That's not Campbell walkers fault. Now, you can okay. Better players around him, those numbers that that you're saying there there wouldn't be close to what what are there? I mean, if you so you're you're saying, okay, we'll put Kyrie on the Hornets. Put a healthy kyri on the Hornets. And he'd have insane numbers insane. I sure okay. I'm not saying that I think Cam was better. Just because he's had better numbers. I think I also don't think he's way bet like miles better than Kyrie. I just think if you look over the last couple of years watching him a lot I think he's been unbelievable. And I think if he was on a team with real talent, they would have a chance to be damn good. And for example, if the Lakers could somehow get Kemba Walker to play with LeBron James and be the Kyrie Irving was in Cleveland. I think the Lakers should do anything. They can make that happen because I think he'd be a perfect fit as an example. Let me let me let me just toss. Would you take kyri or Kimball? Walker? I regret or have. I would rather have come Walker than Kyrie. But I also think, but I also think you can make an art like I understand the argument for me. I don't think this like I'm not saying this is like one guy stinks. A one guy's good. I just personally think Cam is a little better. So let me let me just add earlier. Bontemps as saying the kyri thinks and canvas good. That's right. That's exactly what I'm saying. Forbade them. Let me just toss this in there because I think this is relevant. I don't know how element these are the games played the last three years for Kemba Walker eighty one seventy nine eighty and then this year is obviously played in all fifteen games. Definitely definitely part of my argument. He's been Monday. They say the best of -bility is availability or whatever last three years for kyri fifty three seventy to sixty and he's played. He's missed one game this year. I think. I mean, there's some value in that. I don't know. I don't I don't know how much it is. But I think it's I think it's relevant. Come has been healthier to me. The real issue with Kemba is he's going to be a free agent just like kyri, we'll be he's going to be a free agent this summer, the the whole he's the heart. And so he's only they really got the only reason would come to a game in Charlotte is to watch Kemba Walker play and most people still don't that's true. And they still lose the only reason to watch a Hornets game since the team returned to fifteen years ago. What about the occasional Michael citing? How dare you disparage? What did they call?.

"He had already like you come to terms. Though it was, you know he bench and sometime this summer that the Hornets were able to promise him more of a role and gave him more money, whereas the Spurs, I think it's very possible that he would have just been plastered on the bench behind not just John Murray, but also Patty mills, maybe. So you might be right about that. I mean, obviously is not going to be he, he's coming off the bench behind Kemba Walker. Exactly. You're right. And that that's why I wonder if maybe like that Hornets role because twenty is really not that good anymore. If he ends up seeing his playing time dwindle even in Charlotte, just because just because somebody told you that they're going to give you something doesn't mean that they are yet other news that came out from media day yesterday, players always get asked about, especially when they're coming down to the end of their contracts about staying in those cities. And sometimes they can be very diplomatic and they can say, hey, you know what? We're going to let this season play out. I really enjoyed playing year whatever else, but I thought that there are three guys that I thought really went out of their way to make it clear. They wanted to be. Where they are, which is not listen. That's not the end. All be all damore Rosa wanted to be a raptor for life, and he's not a renter for life, but career Ving Klay Thompson, Kemba Walker, all three of them and Thompson, and kyri or obviously both been in great situations and obviously currently are in situations that was a little surprised that Kemba Owen have expected him to necessarily, you know, kind of not. I don't wanna say, draw a line this, but just talk about, you know extensively how much he loves being a hornet, but kyri Klay Kemba if we look up a year from now, do you think any of them are possibly wearing a different uniform than what they are right now?.
