Fresh update on "kemba" discussed on The Bill Simmons Podcast

"SGA right now, but like this SGA tears kind of another level. Although Mitchell at the beginning of the year, you know what I mean? I really didn't want to leave because I just feel like Mitchell was my 16th guy last year. Yeah. But again, for the votes that matters. None of this matters right now. Katie clearly, when you watch KD and see how other teams sell out to stop him, it gets really fun, seeing what he it's like, okay, cool. There are teams that go crazy trying to stop him with double teams, just ignoring somebody else, and he's still put up these kinds of numbers. And also not just forget about the off the court stuff with Kyrie. It just doesn't seem on the core Kyrie is the same guy anymore. He's more likely to go 7 for 21 in a game than he is to go 14 for 20. Yeah, it's not taking ten days off in between games. Like last year when he's going on that scoring run, nobody's pointing out and be like, actually, do you know how amazing it would be to have to play once every ten games? How fresh you would be? I want to talk about this quick and then we'll go back to the second team. I'm so fascinated by what they're doing with the Blake Griffin thing. It's like my favorite random strategy of the year where he just plays once a week for 25 minutes, 20 to 25 minutes, like you're doing a run in Manhattan beach. It's like, where's your run? It's on Tuesdays. Oh, really? Who are you playing with? The Celtics. Yeah, I play a little backup center for them. Oh, cool. What do you do the other end? The Celtics express. Yeah, the professional team. Yeah, then the other day as I just, you know, I just work on my knees and just do conditioning. And then, you know, then Al Horford, sometimes he doesn't play, so they'll need me. I have a couple. I have a couple of younger guys in Boston. Do you have any connect with him? I'm like, what do you mean? Blake Griffin? Do you just want to blindly text him? And say, what's up? What's up, Blake? I can't do that. I can't make that connection happen. And they were kind of like, no, no, he wants to go out or if he wants to hang out or whatever. And these are like, these are good guys to hang out with. Yeah, so I was like, are you are you doing this because of his schedule? Right. Yeah, Thursdays he's off. He's like, he's probably not playing tomorrow. Well, Dallas should do this with Kemba. Like Kemba, you expected Kemba to play three days a week. Good luck. But if he's once a week, 25 minutes a game, it's like Kemba early in the week every week. You're going to be our third guard. We're going to play 25 minutes. Just be ready for that game. It'll actually be pretty good. Anyway, back to the second team. So you have. So yeah, I've got Booker SGA KD AD and then the forwards are going to be weird this year. And I think the Jalen thing was last year. The two guard. He's still listed as a guard on some of the stuff, but you're right. He's a forward. Yeah. So he's the pick. He's the pick over Zion. He's the pick over LeBron. Derozan's going to have a case here. If you start looking at the third team stuff, it feels like. No, I'm talking 13. There's a guy you haven't mentioned yet. The guy in Utah. The guy that we've had some stock from the past. I think marketing, I had for 13. I sold one. You sold it? Yes. Embiid? Zion. Either marketing or LeBron. And it'll be LeBron, the more games he plays. And then ja and Halliburton over Mitchell. But I think Halliburton versus Mitchell is a battle. Anyway, but hold on, one other forward though, if Pascal keeps playing this year, the way he's playing. Yeah, he missed some games, that's selling resemble. He's already missed ten games. That's why I'm not bringing him up. Josh. I got to say, I wrote down mobley. Because the stuff mode we'd do as a two way guy, I think, has to, you know, if that team ends up winning 55 games. He'll be one of the biggest reasons if not the biggest reason. And I think he'll go up as it rises. I don't think he's the third two mom being a guy, but I think he's I had like bam mobley Mitchell Fox a bonus LeBron simons. A bunch of those guys, he's at least in that group. If I had to do a third team today, bam would be the center, only because embiid's misty over indeed. Yeah. Okay. But that's good. 'cause MB's mistake games. If M beats missed four, you know, whatever. You'll be happy to know that I went through. Let's assume this holds. You never know, but Tatum ends up being a first team guy and Jalen's the second time. How many times this has happened this century? Same team first team second team two guys. LeBron and AD, curry and KD, curry and draymond in 2016. I forgot

"When did I know me and MJ we had a conversation and he told me he just basically told me what he could offer me, you know? And it just wasn't, you know, what I felt like I was worth, you know, at the time, you know? No, that year, I had my best year. You know, one of my best years scoring wise, you know, I played, I played all 82 games that year as well, I believe. I just had a great year. All NBA, you know, I was up for the supermax and, you know, I didn't, they didn't offer me my max. Am I regular max? They came up they came up short of the regular max. Yeah, no, I feel like I was a max guy, you know? Because of the year I had. So, you know, I just couldn't sell myself short. That's all it was. It wasn't anything to do with what anyone just didn't have it. You know, to be honest, you know, it was a lot of guys that were paid at the time and under contract. So it's just didn't go on my favorite. And it was definitely a place where I wanted to be. You know, like I said, I love that city. I love the fans, love the organization, just such great people. And I was just so comfortable there, you know? No, those guys like my family for that whole organization. So that is where I wanted to be. But like I said, it just, to me, it just wasn't what I feel like I was perfect at the time. You walk into the NBA, national champion, high school phenom, high school legend, single digit losses. You walk into the Charlotte bobcats, not the hornets, the bobcats going 7 and 59. Possibly the worst NBA team in history. And I've talked to some of the vets on that team about you and how you react to it and how you took to it. But what are your I mean, and that was like DI was there and not in shape and Paul Silas takes no from anyone. He will tell you straight to your face if you're fat and you're not working hard. Oh yeah. Oh yeah. Like, what do you, when you close your eyes and think about that year? What images come to your mind? You know what I can remember? I remember, I don't watch ESPN much, right? But I remember watching ESPN that year one time and they just had a compilation of us shooting air balls. Like literally a compilation of just us shooting a bunch of air balls. Not just remember us like just being down 20 points in the first quarter, every single night. It was, it was rough. It was rough. It was like one of the hardest seasons to be a part of. But I'm gonna be completely honest, you know, the guys that I was around, they actually still made it so much fun with me, you know? I didn't know any better. I was just a rookie coming in in the lockout year. I didn't know any better. So those guys, they kind of still made a special for me, man. No, I had a couple guys who were kind of gravitated towards young guys like Joe Henderson, Sagan and chop DJ Augustine. Those guys were like guys who watch this was around all the time. And you know, they kind of just showed me the ropes. You know, even though things weren't going so great for us, you know, I just kind of learned how to just keep working for the most part. And that's what I did. I just kind of focused on my work. You know, I kind of had to be selfish when that aspect, you know, for the most part, and it just kind of made sure I just maintained, you know, my work ethic because it could have been like, I could have went the other direction, super easy, like, man, forget this, you know? It could have been easy in that sense. So when I did, I just kept working. Just try to get better. Well, Gerald Henderson once told me a story about you from there. He said, I don't remember what game it was, but we just got smoked, and it was like we were on a hellacious losing streak. We get into locker room. We're all sitting in our lockers in Kemba comes in there and he's throwing a fit. Like we can't, this is inexcusable. This is too painful. We can't lose like this, you're emotional, you're getting a mow, you're screaming. And Gerald was like some of the veterans were kind of looking around like, some of the veterans are looking around like, hey man, it's just we got a lot of games. You can't get this emotional about one game. And some of the other veterans were like, wow, this guy really, really cares. Do you really have any memory of that? Yeah, I can't remember what game of this either, but yeah, I mean, you know, at the end of the day, I always looked at myself as a winner. You know? And it wasn't about the losing for the most part. I think it was just sometimes the way we played, you know, I just feel like we just didn't play it hard all the time, you know? And.

"Let's go through the career of Kemba Walker and the NBA. And we'll go and reverse order. Do you have a Kemba Walker Oklahoma City Thunder Jersey? Was one ever made? Were you ever a member of the team? I don't understand how that works. Were you ever a member of the thunder? I was. I was a member of the thunder. I was, because I actually went down there. I wasn't Oklahoma City. I went to the facilities, met a lot of the staff members and they were unbelievable in the time that I was with them. Literally unbelievable. They took such great care of me. Say that about Oklahoma City. What is that actually mean? Like when you say they take good care of me like you get there, you're new, you're a veteran. You clearly don't fit the timetable. So what does that mean to you pick you up at the airport? They help you find out how what does that actually mean? So for me, my instance is my knee, you know? So, you know, I go, as soon as I get traded to them, you know, first of all, I get a call. And. He's great. He's great. He's super honest. Doesn't sugarcoat anything, which is what I love. No, I don't want anything to be sugar coated. You know, I want to hear the truth and I really feel. And he was, he was a 100% with me, you know, from day one. And he, the training staff, when I got there, took great care of me. They set me up with doctors, they gave me just basically whatever I needed to get my knee on track for the time being, you know, I wasn't with them for long. I might have a month, maybe. But for that month, I was on the phone with these guys all the time. And they were always calling and hey Ken, how you feeling? Do you need anything that's in that? And that's great. That's great. No, they didn't have to do that because, you know, obviously they knew that I wasn't going to be staying there, you know? So they didn't have to do that, but they did for the time being and I respected that a lot. No Jersey, though, you know some like obscure Jersey collector wants a walker. I definitely want my Jersey. I can't lie. I do want my Jersey. And I'm gonna ask those guys. There you go. You come into the room if they watching this. There you go right there. I want my okay features. 15, right? I want to say somebody half 15, but I would love to, I would love it to be 15 for sure. Okay. Boston, you might, I don't know how much you want to answer this, but why, so why is there something always just seems off in the water in Boston? And everyone blamed it on Kyrie a few years ago. Then Kyrie leaves, and it's still it just feels like there's angst. There's a lot of angst all the time. Like even Brad steps down, dared steps up, Danny steps down. Marcus smart is a flight today. You had the thing in the bubble where there was like Marcus was screaming at people in the locker room and it got out like, is there why is there always something muddy in the water there? I have no idea, man. I can't. I can't really answer that. I don't know. I don't know. I am who I am. You know, I feel like I am to ask you most positive person. There can be, you know? I come in with a great attitude all the time. Like I'm always smiling. I'm always uplifting and my time there was great. My family was great. You know, I had great teammates. I talked to those guys all the time still to this day. To be honest, I didn't, I didn't know that I was going to be traded, you know? And I even seen stuff like, oh, we had a mutual agreement on the train. I even seen like peaks. I've seen something where they say people from my camping. I don't know, man. I am who I am and that's where I wanted to be because that's where I was. You know, I never wanted to be a guy who got traded. I just, not something I was even thinking about. So I can't tell you. I don't know. To be honest, I don't know. Back before Boston, it's Charlotte. It feels like ten years ago. It literally feels like ten years ago that Kemba Walker making an all NBA team and becoming eligible for the supermax was an event that happened. It was like two years ago, two and a half years ago. It feels like a decade ago. I know, right? So that happens, you become eligible for the supermax. And I was rereading all the stories about Charlotte and why you left Charlotte and all this. When did you know, like, they're just not going to offer this to me. In fact, they're not going to they're just not going to offer. It's just not going to work out. I know there was a conversation with you and Michael at some point. When did you actually know that? Because I know you loved it there. And a big part of you wanted to be there for your whole career. So when did you know and what's the conversation with MJ like when it's over? Yeah, I love that place. I still live there. That's what my main home is. I love Charlotte and.

"As london or england. National team didn't bring it back but kemba walker can always go. Home was as a man of the people of new york city specifically new york city. People how are you feeling about one kemba walker the pride of the apollo theater of rice high school Going back to the new york knickerbockers. I mean you know before we get to the realities of the situation just on the senate mental level it's a huge deal Specifically because kemba walker is counted. The he is not kind of. He's the last of the mohicans. He's the last of the new york city hooper's of any significant relevance right as basically him and land stevenson and i think stevenson is now unlike Siberia something so she no kimba last of the new york city hooper's carrying that mantle. And let's face it the thing about kimba that that makes this specials like he's not stefan marberry. He's not run our tests like he doesn't have a complicated personality like he's easily one of the most lovable hooper's of his generation like regardless of his new york affiliation. So you know he's going to embrace everything that this means sentimentally and you know it's gonna be great now if we get to. The un heartwarming parts of this is near has been bum bum knee for two years now right so he got bought out of two years of seventy four million dollar deal to leave right so that says a lot about his medical what teams think about whether he or not he's going to be able to perform so that that's something that we got a monitor but if he can get right at all he's gonna give the knicks a lot of what they need as far as shot creation offense of initiation in the picket role shooting. You know like the guy can actually make an open jump shot. I think if he's healthy. He's a perfect fit for what they're trying to do. But you know. The health factor is is huge. You can't downplay will end for the cost. You know like the fact that the knicks are operating on a budget and they can still get a player of cameras hypothetical healthy caliber. That's a big deal. But i think was. I think you're right in that that the thunder were willing to buy him out and this is at thunder team. That has long played every veteran asset. It's had to this point to try to spin it into more picks. I think that says a lot. About what their medical staff must make of canvas knee and his long-term trade value otherwise because if they thought there was any chance they were gonna get something for him down the line. This would not be happening. Yeah so they have roughly ten million and cap space the next so you assume get something around that maybe a little bit under i gotta say though like i agree with everything guys are saying about the encore implications. But i care more about the vibes. Man this is incredible. Like this is just continues. The knicks as completely turning around the dole and era and becoming just a lovable underdog. Kemba gives them to massive games where. Msg just goes wild or if you them one halfway decent playoff game. This is a win for both him and msg no this. This move is going to have a one hundred percent approval rate about the minutes. he's taking. I mean you're you're swapping out. Alfred peyton minutes for kemba walker minutes. That's that's that's yeah. That's that's definitely getting rid of a datsun. Four tesla and the thing Msg obviously when we finally got crowds back in. You know at least msg network was smart enough to send their announces to the game and not having them watch it from their couch. Eating pretzels like other broadcasts. Were doing like when during the playoffs. If you can listen to the msg broadcast when clyde and mike breen. Were calling the games. Clyde frazier the knicks. Msg color commentary guy. Obviously a legend in a game. I've been listening to this guy for literally decades and he does not get excited right like. That's not his thing he's conroy stayed. Do he uses colorful language but temperament is generally like consistent. He has one register. Yes secures more about swatches than metropcs colored commentary and during those knicks. Playoff games claude. Getting swept up in it right lake this team. That got destroyed. Five gains by the hawks but like during those moments even clyde can help you be like wow this is special and so yeah the vibes that are going to be generated from any Excellent kimball walker. Plays gonna be musi. Tv for somebody like me having said that though we do need to talk about the rest of the new york next offseason winge pretty much came down to signing evan. Four near which seems like a pretty reasonable deal gives more shooters as woz was alluding to but other than that. They pretty much just roll. Everybody back from last year's team kept all tim. Tom tippett favourite grinders. We got new orleans on new contractor rose on a new contract alec burks on a new contract. Seems like it's going to be the same team. Plus kemba plus four near rob. Does this change anything in terms of where. The knicks are in the tier system of eastern conference. Not terribly know. This is still a team. That's gonna fall somewhere in the middle. But i think all the moves that they've made this point to kind of keep most of their core intact punch it up here and there. That's where you can kind of takes you over the top into a net positive type of off season. Now you have a net positive off season and still regress to the mean. A little bit still have a little worse injury luck next year than you did last year. There are so many variables that swung the knicks way. Last time around that. I would be surprised if the even had the same record or improved upon it. I would kind of expect them. Given the rest of the east is kind of steadily improving. I think they might drop a few wins but they're still going to be a really competitive team. They're still going to be really formidable. Mike question is can. They maintain the level of defense. That they did with their losing reggie bullock. Who's a really good perimeter defender swapping out for. Evan forty who is not not and none of their point guards are are really great in that regard. This you're losing that first. Wave of defense. Can you know a healthier mitchell. Robinson can julius randle can rj air in those guys. pick that up nerlens noel. As you mentioned resigned really important for them to. That's kind of what i'm worried about. 'cause defense was how they won and so their defense is in elite. What is this team going to be gained. I think if next management is playing the game kanda right in the sense that they're in a position strike gold if disgruntled superstar game happens in. Somebody's like. I need to get to the knicks right because i think the hard shade is very instructive in that brooklyn. Didn't give up anything right. I don't think the knicks can't put together a better package tomorrow with what's on their roster and mortgaging future pigs excetera etc if that opportunity presents itself right and so this still in the catbird seat for something like that if say and don't aggregate is relaxed. I'm just saying if dame lillard says i want to be in new york in proposition. Make something like that happening right whether it be with some decently intriguing. Young pieces like rj. Like even to some people mitchell Mitchell robinson or ob top and and you know future i etc etc right like they're in a position to do that however you know the thing about being competent in the way that they are in the way of being like a sixty two something seven seed you completely take yourself.

"Arm their way to the knicks someday and so the most important thing is just build on what happened last season and they've managed to do that without hamstring in their cap. I love the kemba move for a couple of reasons first of all. I just think that he is going to succeed there. I understand the size issues and when they get to the playoffs and the defense and all of that stuff. But i do think that team is set up for him to do well and also remember when you're talking about drawing those agents eck part of it that you're selling is msg right. The atmosphere the fans. Msg wasn't very fun place to play if you were the home team for a while there right. He of fans more coming to see the opponent than they were. See the team. There wasn't that excitement. We saw that excitement return to the garden. This past season and with kemba walker. Man it is going to be off the chain and then in turn you can sell to other free agents that in turn you can say to guys look at the gardens like when it gets rocket. Imagine if they were cheering like that for you. And i go ahead. And he has a two syllable first name and last name so that that's cambe why her that's gonna be loud and an amazing an msg and if it's too need skills that they need he really does and just one of the nicest guys in the league right so the idea that he gets to come home and the situation. That's so comfortable to him. I think everyone around the mba is just happy kemba and happy for this fit. I do want to get to the team. That eliminated new york in the playoffs. The hawks bringing back restricted free agent. John collins a five year one hundred twenty five million dollars.

You know him being here. I think is brought the best out of jimmy garoppolo. Jimmy's a A big time competitor and You know we haven't played a game yet but it's playing his best football since he's been here and he's played a lot of good football. You just look at his record. It's something everyone's recognized these really plan at a high level and that's what Competitors do when they're challenged they rise to the occasion and i think he's doing a great job of that people say well. What do you do if they're both playing great. That's a great nether. Great problem the half and we'll deal with that when it comes jalen. What do you think about the future of the quarterback position in san francisco. What afforded nine is shown as that is now gonna be garoppolo now as a veteran however what you do is you show up and you perform your best. You continue to earn respect of your teammates. You keep your value high because when you leave the forty niners you want it to be. Because somebody's recruiting you to be their starting quarterback we all know they drafted trae lance to be the starter and clearly is not likely to happen week one. But it's going to happen at some point and we're not going to be surprised. Jimmy garoppolo has had such an interesting journey in the nfl. Who's a backup for brady. And then he came in for brady brady was injured in played well and then got a big deal with the forty niners went to the super bowl but all of a sudden it seems like they're trying to replace jimmy garoppolo. Every single week in san francisco and we will see at what point trae lance eventually replaces and where jimmy goes from there. We go from there. Who knows but we will be back right after this very short break. Stay tuned in jacoby jammed. Summer league basketball is already upon us tonight. At eight pm we had the raptors warriors and then at ten pm. It is the knicks against the lakers. Obviously the knicks lakers is a finals. Preview is kobe. Gotta give a shout out to bury obama.

"Live above. Pierce seventeen and the heineken. Rubberduck here in new york city. Welcome back to jalen and jacoby jalen. Anthony rose there's been so many free agent signings and so many teams have remixed. Rousers that this one almost got overlooked but steph curry of the golden state warriors signed four year. Two hundred fifteen million jalen. We always say that happiness is a function of realistic. What are realistic expectations for steph. And these warriors next year. How about this team being built through the draft with mark jackson as their head coach. And i'm disappointed. He's been white ball from the league. Sissy sawed them draft steph and clay and draymond and you know coincidentally help them build their dynasty were they can visually at people. Like katie is steph had injuries earlier in his career so based on being an mvp level player he wasn't making that kinda money initially and so now you fast forward. He's the only guy in the history of the lee. the signed soon. Two hundred plus million dollar deals and so now you look at their squad right. You get the splash brothers. And dre mom back. You need one of your young players to become a star. Is it gonna be wisely moody. Is it going to be commingled. And then you decide if you're gonna keep that player along with the guy like wiggins for example or you got to move them four and established player so it's gonna be interesting to see how they play these next four years and this year is going to be a proving grounds to uplift each of those guys. I mentioned value so then naked. Decide how they're going to try to go for that next. I didn't look at the warriors last year. And say this team klay thompson away from contending for the western conference championship. However you mentioned they've got wiggins they've got watchmen. Dave guy young players. Dave got a mix of assets. That would be very desirable for another team to dig kind of cash in to pair with thomson and curry. But one thing that i know that you care about is currently get misogyny. He's jeff. I might as well as playing in the game. No doubt about it and this is the beauty of the league. Were god-like steph. Can not.

"I'm david jacoby we are. What is that we do what they say we have a lot of. Mba news to get to but we start with the hometown. New york knicks kemba. Walker jalen rose. They've got forty a walker. They basically got boston's back from last year. And it's a dicey max. I do not like this. What about book. It's on buckets on bucket. They're trying to make sure they have for you when you go to the garden and you take questions to a game. You don't want you to look up at. The score. And tom has a team plans. So tough isn't a mud. Julius randle has twenty five or thirty points and everybody else has twelve less. And less until de rose gets going in the fourth quarter. Giving you some buckets dot evan. Forty eight buckets. He's a twenty point score. Give a walker bucket your mix. I'm telling you they're going to be in the lower part of the eastern conference jacoby. Okay they gotta get some people that can score the ball. If you can't get high physicality you gotta get scoring off the dribble. And that's where they seem to be investigated in live already. Invested in rj barrett. They've already got a menu who they've got derrick rose. They didn't need new faces in the back court. Why did they do this. That means that like harris one. They're not done they're not done. They're not done like it's so easy to see these moves. Initially when they happen a question why they're taking place people was doing this report. Zing got traded your remember that porzingis got traded people felt like all doom and gloom in new york city. They'll never respond on.

"I think he's thirty one thirty so he's still very very young in terms of like he's got he could have three or four really good year. He's not a sort of pass. First point guard. he's more shooting scoring point. Got but he can do that for new york. They need that. They definitely need that next to Julius randle because we saw in the playoffs here especially against the atlanta hawks. I just didn't have anyone else who is able to create. So if you're the knicks right now you're like oh you're looking at is the two years prior to this last season. It was like he was really a good. It was a great play four-time all-star so he brings a lot of hope to that franchise that he can get anywhere near that level. Then they've picked up a great play of nothing but if he's in and out of the lineup and that knee injury as certainly played in the last season or two then. You really not sure what you're going to get out of him because he's probably going to be in a few games and he's gonna miss a few games and then he's going to be coming back and working he's into the lineup. So that's the. I think the whole situation with the knicks. They're hoping that he can recover from that knee injury and if he can then i think he can still be a very productive plan. I think this is a pretty good pick for again giving up nothing in return. Yeah what do you think tray with the all the moves. I guess the knicks have made here now basically bringing the band back together. You know reggie bullock moves on but then they add to the big deal and now we don't know the details but kemba walker was. It's been a pretty good actual free agency now from the new york knicks or is it a bit of like i mean it definitely changes things that makes me like the forty-eight signing a whole lot more knowing he's not going to be the number one ball handling piece that new york brought in. I don't know that we're going to ever get back to see in the four-time all-star kemba walker That we've seen in the past. But that's not necessarily what the knicks need. They just need a quality. Starting point guard who is able to play. You know thirty five to forty minutes a night which theoretically campbell will derrick. Rose wasn't quite able to do that. I don't like it from two standpoints number one. I just found out kemba walker was in oklahoma city. Thunder still adjusting to that and now he's moving on to the to the knicks. That's going to be tough for me. And it does a little bit. Get in the way i feel like if the development of a quickly and more so rj barrett like they just keep bringing guys to handle the ball knicks. Do and that's taken the ball out of the hands of barrett who was a high draft picky seems to have some playmaking ability. The shot looked better towards the end of the season last year. So from that standpoint. I don't love it. But i think getting kemba walker for basically nothing is going to be huge for the nixon. You know point guards who can play in the pick and roll. Tend to do pretty well in the often. He'll get a ton of chances we saw it with derrick rose. We saw it with austin rivers early in the year quickly played out of the pick and roll last year. Kemba is going. Get his chances. He's probably best with the ball in his hands. Plan in pick and roll. So i can see it work from fit standpoint as well. Well let's get to your bulls who are making more moves in day to sign and trade. D'amato rosen. they traded thaddeus young alpha rookie draft picks. To the spurs for rosen who signs a three year. Eighty five million dollar deal remember when people were wondering if he was going to take like a mad pay-cut to join the team to try to title. No not happening guy got paid What do you think. Tk obviously lonzo ball there on day. One and now derozen in the mix. How happy are you or confused are you. What's your emotions with this droese news. Well i was surprised and delighted when the bowl somehow got alex caruso on day one. So for devils to get. Demar a rosen. On day two meant to be honestly came out of nowhere. Rumors started breaking late afternoon. Yesterday that the bulls were in the mix for derozen sign and trade. Felt like it was going to be lowery marketing. Since he's been talked about as a sign candidate with the bulls the lakers were still allegedly. In the mix. Rosen had a meeting with the clippers but they didn't have the assets that chicago had to offer in a trade and it turned out. The money was probably too much to marta. Rose into pass up three years. Eight five million plus at a nice chunk of change for a nice player eighth street seasons of twenty plus points. For demar to rosen career. High six point nine assists per game last season very nice kind of become a point forward a little bit of a small ball four after day. One a free agency the bulls really needed a wing after bringing in lonzo and caruso they got maybe the best one available. Who's going to be changing teams. I mean kawhi. Leonard would be great. Don't think it's gonna don't they gonna happen. Bowls are going to be tough to stop and probably very easy to score on. I don't know if the fed is perfect derozen in three point shooter. He's the best with the ball in his hands. So zach levine. Nikola vich used to a lot of touches as well but the fell apart last season. When levine went into the protocols anytime he went to the bench the offense looked terrible and now chicago has legitimately multiple multiple ball handlers multiple scores multiple creators for the first time in forever. The other concern. No doubt is the price. Three years eighty-five million. That's a lots. But the rosen has interest around the league you know. He was meeting with contenders and as we've seen with russell westbrook on one of the biggest deals in the entire league literally. Anybody can be traded. So i'm not worried about that from a cap space standpoint balls also gave up fad young alpha. Ruge me new and the big thing future first round pick combine that with the nickel a legitimate trade. They didn't have their this year. Twenty twenty one. They don't have their pick in two thousand twenty three. They don't have their pick in two thousand twenty five. I said it was concerning the heat to go all in for a third seed yesterday. Bowls are all in for a fifth seed right right. Yeah yeah. I want to keep the pick. But that doesn't matter to me. The bulls haven't made the playoffs since two thousand seventeen..

"That's what these these championship teams have a good mixture of both. They don't just have well there are stars leading the way the black router you know. Like they actually do like that they do. That's exactly who they need him back. That's exactly. You have to stand Brandon Marshall, bring Jake back as well in terms of attitude. In terms of positional death he would have been perfect this year, we joke about it but it's the truth. Yeah, it is a chance to say No. And I say I just don't know if it's there is if it might not be there but that's that leadership in that Pride that brings though you do offer Consin Thompson showed more than anything that you can have a guy saying the right things and bringing that cash a but you have to be able to bring it on the court to and sit here. Like T, forget about it like he just not good enough and it didn't matter what he was doing. It room. If you bring in lower bench veterans just to replace Grant. And those type of guys Jabari, Parker it didn't matter because it wasn't doing enough. You need a guy like Kyle Lowry who's actually going to be part of your big three here. Oh, here we go. Voice in the room, but can also do it on the court, because let's be real. They just didn't have enough on the court last year, to win at the highest level. Would they have been better than they were? Absolutely, but they also did not have a core that was going to be able to compete with the top fight teams in this league. And they had so many issues when it came to that Kemba situation and log. Use on the team that they ultimately weren't going to be able to go anywhere even in a best-case scenario. So you're going to have to completely reshape this roster right now with guys that can be a voice and contribute and get along with the others in the room. They're like the, the more I think about it. We're looking at a substantial overhaul of this team, this offseason. It is only just begun. Yeah, I mean clear it out. There's not much you can do not get rid of Tristan. Yeah, Tristen Smith in Thompson. What is this that we that I see in on, I guess him. And Chloe are done again, I had to bring that up in the show. I mean, if we don't bring that up in the show. Yeah, I mean, we saw, you know, to me that's the way it's supposed to, Jimmy, Jimmy, stopped writing and her dad Thompson, and Khloe Kardashian are reportedly. Monday, done again? So interested.

"It's not Kemba Camp, a camp people who, you know, kind of sided with Kemba on, this sort of thing, would be the president. Something like that or someone who who's, who let the team, you know, a while ago or is, it isn't even as an afterthought at this point, right? Yeah. Because they wanted to cross member and they saw things differently. Yeah I understand. Kemba walking out the door with frustration at this level because he's not now. But at the same time if you just a lot of people saying TJ yeah that's an example. If you if you get, if you objectively, look at the situation, there were countless times as you were Brad. Same You need, to be camber to get where we're going to go and they try to set him up in that position. Countless times throughout the year the program most specifically that they had them on was sacrificing wins and stability in terms of putting him in the best position to be healthy and prison when they needed him most and still then work in the end. And that's why he's gone. So like I, I'm not buying any of the Kemba Walker discussion here. There was no slight to come by, in any way or form from the Celtics, from my bright. Like, it sucks that he ended up in Oklahoma City and that his career as a star is probably overnight, but had nothing to do with us. Then like this is not comparable to the Isaiah situation. I mean at all, he buy, you know, anybody's guess here, probably got this condition through Thursday. Well, surgeries in Charlotte ended up dogshit, you guys don't think look if Kemba really didn't do what he was supposed to do. Rehabbing the knee came back. There was frustration birth. Okay, this reason to get upset but it really looks like they looked at that situation and immediately said we gotta get out of this as quickly as possible which is what I was saying in the offseason and got killed for it off. You know, out sell sell your campus. Get out now and they clearly they were trying to do that. So you went from, we love you, we love you, we love you, we want you in Boston to let's let's get rid of the sky for anything that's going to make you feel pretty shity no matter who you are and no matter what and we know it's a cold business. It's still if you're Kemba, you have a right to be a little bit annoyed but like I just got here man. If you're trying to get rid of me. Yeah. And he didn't do anything exciting. He was a starting point guard in the All-Star Game, you know? I mean he played relatively well last year and then he had the injuries and they were like, nope, gone, I don't want it anymore. Yeah, I mean, it's not great. A bit of everything, I mean, obviously they wasn't I didn't pay them. I mean, they gave them a max deal. I was probably that's obviously a big reason behind this so you can look at it from both sides. It's like, yeah. Okay, another month or star or former star, however you want to say it. Another veteran, other guy that, you know, you did him wrong. But for every player that Celtics trade away, there's another player that walks away. I mean, look at Kyrie look at, hey, we're looking more for life. So, what are you supposed to do? Just sit on your hands away from these guys to, to leave you for nothing. So I do understand from a business point of view, but there's there's side of it where, you know, he feels like, oh, great..

I like what we got here and I'm going to go back and do it again. That's good on the end of thing. But I am like I said, is you've done? You've done Kemba dirty so to speak. How did they do crack a dirty? Look, I'm just talking about the way. I'm just it's just a phrase Bobby. I'm, I've never thought you talking about. I've never bought into that. I think it's abated.

When you totally understand it. When Whatchamacallit, when when guys get traded and when you guys make their own decisions and free-agent, I think when people people don't seem to understand was that how didn't leave? Because he hated it in Boston, he left because he got a better offer, he felt that his value was at a certain point, didn't agree. And so then I'll said, well, let me go find out what that value is and you got a four-year hundred million dollar deal, which is more than a Celtics felt he was worth now in retrospect the cellphone right. Because when you look at how things flamed out for Allen Philadelphia look out, things didn't work out. When you got traded to OKC. I mean, Al has been at a couple of different places since he left Boston, and I think if you're out, Horford, it at this month.

And that's why he's been saying the incident drag their feet with name image and likeness seeing some individual conferences. Start the push for quicker and expedite the process politically because you know. They want schools to be able to come to their schools. You have to compete for kids now. That's what we are commissioner question to both of you because everybody says like a panacea this is like oh as soon as we get the right person. Everything's good college football and we can go to basketball as former athletes if you say to me. Let's hire this impeccable man or woman that's gonna come in and change everything. What incentive does the fourteen team. Sec have to agree to do something in concert with the way behind the times zero pac twelve in some cases right. They're not you personally but the big ten is fourteen teams. The big twelve has ten teams which doesn't make any sense. But that's the case if you bring all those leagues together everybody says just get some central leadership it. It's all good. Why would any of these leagues that are all in despair positions. Why with somebody would come in and say let's unite. What is the incentive for. Any of these leaks to do that. That's the whole argument. Bring somebody together. They'll make it unified. I don't see that who's gonna come in well. First of all is going to be more money generated if they're all put together right z. Is going to be a big giant package. Think about five five leagues with all these different teams now. Some of the teams are very good but all conferences have bad teams in. We you start talking about the best of the best all under one umbrella in not this. Nc two a mess. Then that's going to generate more revenue in those presidents. those universities. What is it that they want. they want more revenue. You agree with that or do you think it's easier said than done. I think it's extremely complicated. I think there's so many layers of course as easy to sit here on national tv and radio and say this is what they need to do when you start to get to the inner workings of how the car really works. There's a lot of agendas out there to true agendas and a lot of people that are trying to buy for different positions. And i want to happen i just. I don't know all the answers to how we get there zooming. I don't just chase the money so you got to do. That's what they do in any way right now. They're they're you know. I i keep seeing and hearing people talk about guys getting on the field on the court to play but at the end of the day. They're playing an empty stadiums. Why why the money. The money exactly. So if it's about the money this let it be about. The money is stopped trying to act like the kids really need to play. Because if they don't play all of a sudden they're going to be lost they gotta go back to their neighborhoods. And don't don't do that. Don't do that to meet. You might be able to do it to some other people that don't understand it but don't try to sell me a bag of good when i know better if there's one takeaway because i really commend justin fields for coming on this show yesterday and talking about the petition and talking about how he wants to play. But there's one thing that kind of been sitting with me for the last twenty four hours that kind of irk me and key used it. As soon as he said he said you know we were talking about. Hey we are united and players have to leverage and he said. Hey i just wanna focus priority wise right now the petition and just playing football. And i'm saying no no no. Let's make both the priority. Don't just is so easy to actually. Just wanna play football and we got to change the way we think to elevate consciously the powers that be right now only wanna hear justify he'll say that i only wanna play football so they can say see. All they care about is playing football they just wanna get out there in play and try and get an opportunity to play on sundays so they can help their families. What are they going to get that opportunity regardless because the. Nfl is not taking any leads from college. Sports or football so to speak. They may be willing to help them to a degree moving date here there. But they're not changing their entire schedule to appease college football. And i hear that everybody's not going to nfl right so a counter argument does not going. I mostly not but that makes that makes the point even more imperative though right it. Most people aren't going to nfl. This is your opportunity to get a headstart. you're playing football. You playing football for millions and i think it just like guinea when a message from a positive standpoint when a message is being given people try to get away from that positive message by talking about something totally different we. Are you nine it. They want to get away from that. They don't want that to continue to to catch fire. They wanna start to hide behind the pandemic in talk about playing sports instead of talking about that conversation on a consistent basis and i encourage those.

"Don't want them to ever be bad. Exactly. Like oh man I can't be all that. I remember winning a title with these guys. I don't know why everyone is obsessed with bringing back. These guys, when you saw Darren get a younger version, the same player but a younger player that's out there can play a similar position where the same page And, and I'm just talking about Portuguese in this example and yet is it a risk? Absolutely, it's a risk. But when you're not a great team, you have to take risk. You have to gamble a little bit. It's a high-risk high-reward, what's, what's the alternative? Like somewhere and Kemba here? And you try to restructure that contract and now they're selling in a first-round exit? Like, is that what you guys want to do? You want to, you want to double up with Chris? That's I mean, the camera is not often I'd rather swing-for-the-fences and source and strike out or hit a home run. Then hit first African single girl. I love Al Horford and would love for him to come back. I wouldn't do that deal. I just, I don't think it's the type of deal that makes a whole lot of sense. I mean, hell, if you're going to do that, you might as well. Keep Kimbo really good point if that's like the best meal. I continued it. Yeah, I don't, I don't know. I mean, listen, if, if Robert Williams, it was someone that we can say, this is it, he's going to be completely healthy. I'm a job. May I say the same thing that that's Rodger said, but because of that, I sort of like the idea of him returning to that role, that Mentor role that met a whole lot to Robin Williams. He he talked a lot about a heading into this season and it's just, I don't know. What's he going to call it a Celtics Binky, if you will, I think that they feel comfortable with that when you guys get someone like that back when you guys rather have this job, would you guys rather have Rob and Tom next year, or Robin Horford, you're forgetting to include Kemba in that scenario, right? I mean, well, that's my thing about this one is that this can become a bigger figure. Some else you had to go talk to for Xena to see what's, you know, whether he's he'll still interested, just platonically. He's like, I'm talking you up right now man. Thompson's an expiring deal is a good choice. This is a good point. Kevin will be a bit Ito Bobby don't make that. That's a great Point. Yep. Come through the door any second. Now somebody here by this is Bobby Ellis making. She's making a reservation right now. It's been there so long. It's like a lamp to me. This is my page here. It like I knew still think that's the Al Horford from five years ago. That walking, through that bedroom door, it's not. So, how was real solid? I know one that no one was watching him cuz he was in Oklahoma. But remember he was watching, if you for disclosure had on my fantasy team for a little bit. He was bawling out. It was. And if she remember when we looking at the standings throughout the year in, Oklahoma was floating right there in the middle of the week. Somehow, he was a big part of his looker and KD getting into it. Okay, oh yeah, I just saw Shack..

"Was probably their second-best offensive weapon this year. He's not, he, the ceiling isn't as high as to what you envisioned, he could potentially be as both a guy who could, you know, you know, contests, you no contest shots and stretch it out and shoot threes and be seven feet tall and just a real problem, but he's still a 7-footer that shoots nearly 40 per month from 3 and can score. Like, that's not find any way. He's not a unicorn or Horford Hamer, Horford Morford, I thought, but see that's the thing. Yeah, that's why Horford by far? That makes he brings a lot of stuff. I wouldn't say by far, but I think I'd prefer that and and I know you've already done this song. Exactly what he brings in the exactly, what if I tell you that? All right, well, Jimmy like what's, what's wrong with going? Why, why go for the unknown on this one? You know. It's just that the lot of at the big contact with taken as well, obviously, in out-and-out, Horford. But Chris stops, I mean, it's a gamble. He signs a real twenty twenty-five, United Kemba Walker out. The gamble, Kemba Walker has known. He's like we're worried about Chris, Deb's injuries, like my Lord Krishna has played as many games this year. Look at his injury log need ankle. Fairfax BonChon, e77 for like those type of injuries that they don't bode well for seven, you know, guys, that big little, guys, you guys either doesn't bank has em. He's a big man, simply because he's tall. There's nothing about his game other than his height. That screams big man. And now with with Stevens, and everybody great, you can't even count on that old thing. We used to talk about with Steven swear. I'd be dead. Or Stevens can utilize him better? We don't even know who the coach is going to be right next. Biggest worry, is that he's an asshole and he signed an extra year over Camry option for the third year. And that's that is a bit of a concern, right way. You talk his way out of New York and just some of the kind of, you know, end and that will do the the exit interview in New York..

This is so this Jeff they work. They were atrocious and embarrassment but I don't listen, I don't care that Jayson. Tatum and Kemba Walker didn't play. I do care because I think Jason should have been out there. I don't know how bad the injury is, or whatever, is dealing with public. And it came like this, you gotta be out there. This is what 11/12 games left in the regular season. You needed this win, you could ill afford a loss like this, but even without Tatum and Kemba last name. They were without shade gilgeous-alexander, and they stink, they absolutely stink. They're trying to tank they've got a garbage team other than Lou door and you lost. You had supposedly Dead one of the top 25 players in the NBA in jail and Brad. I thought, Oh, supposedly. And it starts now, you mean using all subjects, you mean you're not lose. That's the supposedly Factor know. It's, it's true. Jeff look. I think they rolled the dice on Tatum thinking we could get away with tonight and still squash out the window. And so we needed to give him a day off. Let's pick the game and they pick this one on the back to back on the front, end of a back-to-back, and it burned him obviously. And I don't think he's, I don't think he's hurt but I mean, I get it doesn't matter.

In the Light of the Tough Season, The Celtics Still Have a Glimmer of Hope

"Think the way that we have seen Kemba Play Over the month of April, and if he can bring that, if he can be 80% of the camera that we have come to expect, I think that that will be huge for this team going forward. And I am also optimistic like Evan said, the absence of Robert Williams has proven to be dead And even bigger issue than I think anyone had could have predicted just in the fact of what he was doing with that starting unit on offense, he was moving the ball and also not allow defense has to pack the paint because you have to draw Robert out of the paint or else you at least have to account for him cuz he will just come in behind you and dunk on your face. So for that it opens up a lot of things offensively and then defensively just to have a guy who can provide that kind of Rim protection and that kind of communication we hear from the assistant coaches. Just how much Rob has improved in communication job defensively. And so I do think that, that is a huge thing that is missing for this team right now. And then you add in the fact that yes, Evan Fournier is coming off a battle with covideo said, he didn't feel well for a 4 to 5 days and still trying to work his way back. I think there are areas to look to for positivity, but I agree with Evan that it's in this season. The fact that they can be so dead. And hide and look like two completely different teams. It's just frustrating and it and it's frustrating because of the expectations that are on this group and regardless of how many games they lose and how fast they come out over and over again, those expectations remain,

"This was a game for all the Campbell haters because when Kemba misses the game, like I like Jason Tatum is cold as ice and you see the final score this one these guys could not buy a basket tonight. And this was the game that if Kemba Walker plays that's less time for Pritchard that's less shots for for Tatum who certainly couldn't you know wasn't on tonight and maybe they're getting better looks because Jeanne listen when Kemba Walker's Out There He commands a lot more attention than Richard does or, you know, whoever else you know Waters or whoever you want to put in there. So it's a little bit of a trickle-down effect. I will say I liked that song even though Tatum was off he found other ways to contribute. I mean triple-double tonight, you know, you don't want to just sniffed that away so credit credit for that

Celtics Trade Rumors: Nikola Vucevic

"Do have interesting trade rumors. We didn't want to wait till after to get to them and they involve a bunch of big names that we've been kicking around on the thread on the on the live streams all of this time some really big fish out there. The Celtics are supposedly in on so we'll go Name by name. But again, this is Shams very plugged in the Athletic Club throwing out vucevic throwing out Jeremy Grant throwing out Harrison Barnes. These are all enticing names and honestly those three plus there and Gordon are probably the big fish house on the market Garden Of course dealing with the sprained ankle. So teams are wait and see there but those are the big names out there. We've been hearing them all the time. I'm going to start with Bobby's boy boo Savages. Part of that report was that it's going to be a massive Hall that we've been debating on all day Bobby what that actually entails but first this you turned on this guy meaning turned back towards this guy as Gore guy tell us why tell us what you think what you'd be willing to give up here for the Celtics to get it done. So I was never the biggest fan him and the sticks were previously invested in him during that Kemba Walker offseason. They were hot on him cuz they had the max cap space after Kyrie and Mortadella could have filled him down the middle. So there's a connection there. Obviously Kemba came along and grab that bone. Now, you have the chance to have four All-Stars on the team of chemicals affect them. They hated it. Yeah, and I still don't love it now, but I think context is everything you don't have cap space forever now wage only so many ways you can improve in the future. So why not grab the best player available? And I think out of all the options were going to talk about today. This guy's an All-Star. He pushes 30 points a game on many birth. It's eye dominant. Rebounder. Probably one of the best rebounders in basketball this year defense. We'll see I think it's all situational but he's kind of a disaster down there in Orlando defensive or a that could change in Boston and the three-point shot by zone is the best 3-point shooter above the break and basketball this year. So that's perfect in Boston pick-and-pop off and he'd get open shots above the are called a there he can post up he's seven feet. I know people will love that. He's a real big so he just give them a bunch of different options and outlets for offense and size that they don't have right now and this is what I love about and to John if they can find a way to clear types in a potential deal here clear Thompson in a game here and you're left with Rob and bukovic. See the dream. That's the dream. So look at it this way though. If you're the other team coming back, your don't want to take on Thompson or Thai so, you know, Rob is automatic berth. Certainly, if you're going to go big, you know to go get somebody else's big. I don't see any world in which you make a trade really any trade at this point in Rob Williams is still a Celtic. So anybody at home saying do do it do it I think has to get used to kind of giving up on their Binky which is Rob Williams, which is going to be hard for a lot of Celtics fans to be able to live with that.

Kemba Walker Leads the Celtics To an Impressive Win Over the Clippers

"I guess we'll do, he came out scorching and was pretty often throughout this one. I thought those back-to-back threes in the second half where the key moment of this game that gave the Celtics are multiple possession. We that they ultimately had to the rest of the game there. Once they hit those became a rebounding back the rest of the way. I thought the Celtics are pretty Dreadful on the boards for most of this game and show it to you guys. Robert Williams came in and made all the difference there. He was a rebounding machine as he has been for most of the Season change, but on camber, I mean, what are we talking about at this point? I ten games now somewhere between eight to ten games in a row where he is been himself at the very least. Maybe not home. Most exceptional definitely not his lower rung of production somewhere in between. You know, he's been steady. He's been fairly consistent. I'd say double-figure scoring every single game now four or eight straight games his last one was the seven point out against Utah, you know a few nights off in between a few months or games off of those nights off 25-28 32,000 see when he's fresh when he's well-managed at this point. He's going to be able to give you Kimber production.

I mean I'll be ran middle of the season is unique to do it, but that's true. But yeah, I'll be again they'll be plenty of Plenty things to cover and then the new spot. All right. Well, I talked about a fresh start and Thursday we're going to do the exact opposite of a fresh start we might talk about Kemba Walker. Yeah, so we're doing this on Friday against Toronto on Thursday. 290 had a pretty solid game right hit 5 threes 21 points five turnovers not great. But again, this is like the fourth the fourth or fifth game where he's right around 30 minutes so you can see him maybe settling in to like the the upload that you'd expect for him for the rest of the season still for this season. So far worse field goal percentage of his career worst, 3-point percentage in a long time lowest points per game since his rookie year second. Offensive rating of his career second highest defense of Reagan's career has not been a fresh start for Kemba Walker in his return from injury and we're not going to expect him to come out gangbusters, right? But where are you staying home? Think about the long-term, you know after we've seen in the short-term. Yeah, so it was interesting to hear such a change.

"You know Celtics fan is no choice award a tough on Tatum. He did and before I mean how you know, I mean that that Neutron team they can defend another level especially when it matters most, you know, you saw the the last song Will season run I mean this team's equipped his team is they had the experience and I think you know from a positive standpoint from from the Celtics side of things you have to look at how they're able to keep themselves in this one. But as long as the glaring uh started here is of course Kemba Walker as he just when something's Twitter was hip to the fact that he had in a proper way up since he came back pretty much off. All right, that's when he finally can run his layup and that was the last one he converted. I'm here saying he's just so just so he can check the mic. You're a little you're coming in a little hot here. My steel tube too loud mean it's it's a little hot in over modulated. So I don't know if the game is turned way up on your end. But I mean, we're trying to avoid getting into it because again, this is where we get not confused. But this is where you know, I'm always confused not confused. But the reason the game was lost is not entirely because Kemba Walker was brutal again, but the headline of this game was Kemba Walker was brutal again wage. This is the if you're looking at okay wins and losses are going to come and you're not going to over react to every time that a team that they don't play. Well, well one you can because they've lost eight of their life twelve now, so it's getting a little bit concerning concerning to the defense as you mentioned was bad. But again, the headline is and continues to be Kemba looks terrible. I mean terrible birth on liability at this point and I know everyone's inclination is to continue to give them the benefit of the doubt because he's Kemba Walker and are you saying mechanical like mechanically the way he's moving or just in general he's useless at this point. I disagree with this leaves used to use a different job. I know that but we're look rust is fine ten games in we're talking about like he said three of the worst shooting performances of his career in the last four or five games. Okay, and it could be a slump and it could turn around and if the ball starts going in the bucket nobody's going to make an issue of it, but the dog I'm not going in the bucket as we mentioned. He he's really only able to hit from range at this point and he's off and he's missing open looks too. So right now he's a mess. It doesn't mean he's going to be this way forever. But he is a mess right now and it's that's the worrisome thing is and again, I think people again confuse the you can be worried now because you just want to see him return to form and when he does it wasn't an overreaction to be worried. You're just you're worried cuz you want to see it. You want to see a stretch of games where all of a sudden he does look better and it's not as big an issue. We're just not seeing it now. And again, what are we is this game ten for him coming back? 11 11. Yeah, so it's it's a legit concern at this point. You you you you want to not see this many really crap performances from him. So I don't know if Joshua can agree with this or not, but I was thinking throughout the course of this game. Yes. You're right when you miss that many shots..
