"Right into two there to the fans point. It doesn't matter right, like the Bucks have had the best record. The MBA by far the last two seasons, and all they're hearing from their fans is that they can't do it in the playoffs. Oh, yes, great to go all out in the regular season when as many games as possible, but ultimately they're going to be judged by their fans and their owners and everyone else. What they do in the playoffs, so it makes sense that they would focus on that rather than the regular season. Yeah, and it's just It's an odd dynamic because there's good that's gambling becomes more prevalent. These questions become more prevalent as well. But really, it's buyer. Beware anyway. And you know you're gonna bet on games in this environment. It's not like a Secret. We're talking about it right now. And people have been talking about it. So in that sense, you don't feel too bad for him. They know what they're getting into. To some extent. Hey, what's going on in Boston? What a question. Uh, that's a transition. Uh, short answer is basically the problem that they've had for the last few seasons. They can't get all of their best players on the court at the same time, so they're top four guys. Jason Tatum, Jalen Brown, Kemba Walker, Marcus smart and played a combined 28 minutes together this entire season, so There are obviously other issues. The biggest thing that's sticking out right now, with Marcus Smart. Being out for an extended period of time is their lack of death, and particularly on the wing. They don't have other guys semi Ojul A and, you know guys like that Vontae green or playing big minutes. They're relying on you know Peyton Pritchard because just Teague has been a complete disappointment. So They're just really thin behind their top guys. And when Campbell Walker, as you know, an atrocious shooting stretched like he's had over the last few weeks, they're really left to Jason Tatum and Jalen Brown to do all the heavy lifting, and you could see it in that last game against the Atlanta when they got blown out. Decent hated would miss a shot or jail in Brown and this is shot and they just hang their heads because they know Look, if I don't make this, that's it. We got no other opportunities. So I do think that when smart comes back that will make a big difference. I don't think Campbell Walker will be as bad as he's been the rest of the year. But You know you're looking at that Gordon Hayward trade exception that they have that $28 million that they have to go make a move. And are they targeting someone that they think it helped them? You know, the name Harrison Barnes has been thrown around a lot with the King's kind of floundering this season. He's a guy I think that could help them on the wing of veteran a champion, a guy who knows how to play. So, um, ultimately when Tatum and Brown around the court together They've been very good. I think there are plus seven and net rating overall in those two run the court together, so I think they have confidence that when they get healthy, if they get healthy, they have the pieces. That could be a successful team. But right now it's just we're just not seeing it. What is your guess on how Brad Stevens is processing this Well, he said. You know, we're treating the next few games before the All Star break as a pivotal point in our season like Basically, we need to start playing better. And you know, the problem is he doesn't have a lot of leverage there. It's not like he can bench guys you know, are changed rotations because he just doesn't have that many players available. But for him, I I think he sees that his team. He's kind of losing their spirit. More than anything. It's one thing to lose games. You know Nick nurses at the beginning of the year, the Raptors were losing a lot, but when I talked to him, I asked him. You know what's the balance between you know, hitting them hitting the panic button? Because we're losing so much or sticking with your confident group? And he says, You know, I think we're actually not playing that bad. We're just not winning. In this case, it seems like with the Celtics they their whole spirit is broken. And there's just something missing with that team. And I do think that were Marcus. Smart comes back. I mean, that guy is spirit personified, right When he comes back, he's not gonna let anyone Not play hard. So I do think that Brad Stevens does have a sense of urgency here to get this thing turned around, but at the same time, I don't think there's a whole lot he can do if they don't not something he's been used to, That's for sure. Up there. They've been very competitive and very optimistic about being able to climb the mountain. This is the first time he's really had to deal with the kind of average of below average play that other franchises have to deal with a lot. He has not been saddled with much of that. But he's getting a taste of it. Right now We're talking to Colin Ward, a CBS sports dot com As we kick around NBA chatter, let's go to the other side of the coin. What's Utah doing right? What aren't they doing right now? If you watch the Utah Jazz, I mean, you're getting an absolute clinic on how to play the game of basketball, particularly the modern game, You know, last year Utah. They signed boy, Tom Bogdanovich. They they got Mike Conley. They kind of went offense forward, and there's defense slipped this year. Their defense is back. Part of that is re signing. Derrick favors to have him kind of anchor that defensive unit while Ruby go bears on the bench, and they have just mastered their offensive game. Mike Conley is that a bounce back season they have shooting all over the place They play with such Speed and urgency and Christmas that it's just very difficult to play against them, You know, are same guy Brad Stevens. We were just talking about said that that jazz team reminds him of the 2000 and 14 spurs, and that was kind of the last time we saw that played this beautiful, unselfish, quick hitting basketball on offense, and now the Jazz are our top five defense again, So I mean they are. They are very, very good team and obviously all the questions. They're going to be well in the playoffs. You know, Star power takes over. And if you're going up against Kawai and and Paul George, we're going up hoping against LeBron Nancy Davis, are they gonna have what it takes? But let's not forget that Donovan Mitchell average 36 points per game in a seven game series last year in the bubble, so I think he is ready to take a step forward in terms of his. You know, some start on the super stardom. Whatever you wanna call it. And then the assembly of talent and the way that they played defense. I don't know this could be like I was talking about earlier. The team that just kind of finds its stride in the regular season and carry that all the way through the playoffs. Yeah, That'd be good. I think be good for the league to to see that, or at least the 47 and to show that legitimacy when fans believe it really counts and that is in the post season. It's interesting, you know, we talked about such a top heavy league and Sometimes I'm amazed at how successful the league is because it's so top heavy. And you think you know why are you even worried about Charlotte, New Orleans or Atlanta in Detroit. When you you know, you just have no chance from the word go of doing anything. And yet it works. And what's interesting to me in certain situations, especially is Something like the Knicks, who have been down for so long and Thibodeaux comes in and quickly ignites them a little bit, and Randall has the kind of season he's having and Despite being a basically a 500 team that is not going to go anywhere in the postseason, and we know that they have generated legitimate optimism and interest in New York and There's a lesson in there somewhere. If the bar is set low enough, and you achieve, uh above the bar, people are going to take notice, and they're going to appreciate it and even hard line New Yorkers. Have done that this year. Yeah, That's basically the process, right is what they did. Philadelphia. We were going to be so bad for so long. It will be start to play..

"It's easy for me to say i've not emotionally invested bill. Let's take a step back here for a second. We know all the the obvious context for this season. Everything is weird. everything is off. Look across the standings by the way people like a lot of teams that we expect. Great things of our underachieving toronto and miami to name to in the east dallas in the west and there's a vast bastard expand just mediocrity right now. There's a handful of teams that are doing. Really well lakers clippers jazz sixers everybody else and the bucks everybody else kind of like the nets. They look really great offensive but the record. It's fine but you look at the record sales dominant. Obviously the celtics are underwhelming right now but like things are just strange and i don't think we can quickly judge anything that we're seeing right now especially in the celtics case chris they are. I believe what three and seven their last. Ten but marcus. Smart is missed the last eight games. They're three and five without him. Jason tatum missed a couple of weeks in january. Because of covid they were two and three without him. Chemists only played in twelve out of twenty. Six games missed the first month of the season. They do have some roster issues right there. There's not a lot of reliable depth on this roster jeff teague has been a disappointment tristan thompsons been a disappointment. They didn't really put replace gordon. Hayward we can address all of the personnel stuff. But i look at a team. That is really reliant on its top. Four guys and ken got a knee. That is not going away. The knee issue and missed a bunch of games and tatum. Miss games and marcus. Smart has been out like. I don't look at this and think that there is something particularly alarming about the underpinnings of this. This team i think they're hol. They're probably fine if chemistry holds up. But you know smart in particular. I think people are just sleeping on how important he is. He's not just this phenomenal physical defender and hustle. Play glue guy. He's also their leading playmaker. He's their best point guard. Kim has they're scoring point guard but mortgage sports. The best facilitator and tatum and brown is as a talent as they are. That's not a fully developed. A part of each of their games yet so missing. Marcus smart matters. So i don't. I don't know why these things kinda fall by the wayside as part of the context for their current struggles. When everybody is when everybody starts to come unglued about the record like there's some things have happened and they'll get they'll get through those things they'll get hold again. I call me crazy. I think the celtics are gonna be fine. I really do yeah to reinforce that point. I mean jason tatum. Jalen brown kemba walker. Marcus smart they have played a grand total of twenty eight minutes together. I mean when you look across the league at some of the top teams even a team like the clippers with guys in an either lineup. Like those numbers dwarf. What boston has had to deal with..

"I mean, the Celtics really had double digit leads in games one and two. They end up losing to Miami. Now it's to one So is that 21 Siri's lead the Heat currently have kind of tenuous in your opinion. I don't think so, Jeff. I mean, I'm looking at this box score, and I'm looking at the game that I watched, and I've seen this Celtics team before, but I haven't seen it that much in the playoffs. And you think about what Jalen Brown Actually accomplish for them, and then I was struck by this debt. The Boston Celtics are 16 and one when Jalen Brown scored 25 plus points and because he is not a one way player, he is, in fact a two way player. It looks like they took their P's and Q's from him. I mean, some timely steals some timely block that were a timely block. I should say. Along with four of your starters going into the twenties, let alone double digits, and I would ask you Like, Where was Jimmy Butler? In all of this? I thought this was his team. He was quiet, like 17 point set or something that I think I mean, Three butlers always gonna put up some numbers. But this was a gang Did that. You know the heat really worked in this until late Now, there was that as Doris mentioned R J. There was that like Sure, three minute sequence late in the fourth quarter, where it looked like Miami was about to go on a run. And they got it to within, like five or six, I think was the high water mark for them, but then The Celtics ported on late, But you said it. Look when you have Jason Tatum scoring 25 you have Kemba Walker, Marcus Smart Jalen Brown when you have four guys scoring 20 plus That's tough to beat. And I think if you're the Celtics, though, you have to look at this and say Okay, you know what we gave away the first two games we won tonight. Well, clearly, we should be in this Siri's. And now who do you give the edge to R. J not playing again until Wednesday. Is that better off for Boston? Or is that better off for Miami? I think you're the Celtics make an argument that You know what we get some guys healthy. We rest get Gordon Hayward rested up. That could be a big edge for the Celtics, just in terms of scheduling here. Is difficult to say, because of those points that you bring up and being able to get Gordon Hayward a few days, extra breast being able to look at you guys and know that they can win when they play their deaths. What the Miami Heat have been the same teen throughout this entire playoffs when they shoot well, and they play. Well, of course, they have a better opportunity to win, But I'm looking at Tyler hero. Getting 22 on eight of 18 shooting and has scored in double digits throughout this entire playoffs, and he's coming off the bench for you. If you got a little bit extra out of Kelly Olynyk, and maybe you can get Andre Iguodala knock down some shots. You don't just get back into the game. You can win the game, and if they're going to keep running out that zone against Boston, and it's gonna work I don't know what you're going to tell Boston to do except what they did today, which is to attack the middle. And if they're going to attack the middle, fine, But that hasn't been the case throughout this entire playoffs. They have done that tonight. Can they repeat that in three days time? I don't think that they can, especially if Jimmy Butler decides he wants to be Jimmy Butler in Game four. Supposed to whomever it is, I watch tonight. I'm not sure who that guy was tonight. That's not Jimmy Butler that you've seen throughout. Playoffs. There's there's no doubt about that.

"And again, how much of it is mental how much of it is them saying? Okay, here we go. Again. It's another third-quarter lead. They were slowly watching dwindle away here because they did. You know, finally you should come somewhat back to Earth in the fourth quarter there and and you know, the both teams are going back and forth, but to be out scored twenty points in third-quarter in the Eastern governments finals and we use this point. You're a good team, right and you shouldn't be out sport like that. You shouldn't have to make a thirteen point lead evaporate that quickly and I think what you saw in the locker room was just frustration. I mean in all the players and coaches are going to see in the right thing off the game and I believe them to that. I don't think I don't think these guys don't like each other. I think they do like each other and listen, you know, they're around each other twenty-four-seven right now, right? I mean they played a lot of game You know every other every other day and this one is testing their mental fortitude because they're down owed to this is most adversity they faced as a team and you know, their backs are up against a wall. So they're airing out the agreement is and and I expect to see them come out, you know with some togetherness in game three. Yeah, you know, it's a problem when the Celtics two best players have more turnovers in the entire heat combined slash. Wow, huge issue tonight in game two, but back to the lock because we heard from Jaylen Brown Jayson Tatum and Kemba Walker Marcus Smart declined to talk to the media after the game right left early, but they really downplayed it. They said listen we were emotional you're not supposed to be happy when your download too and played a bad game that you feel like you should have one. Kemba Walker reiterating was nothing it nothing we're fine. Is this locker room blow up kind of the Kyrie team 2.0 bad situation. You're going to drop the key word wage. Or Canter, I know that the Celtics team is after two frustrating games where they could have if not should have come out on Monday. It's so hard to say without the context of what happened and they're like we can try to piece things together. But ultimately it looks like maybe something got said too smart and he reacted that way because of the fact that he didn't talk to the media after he left the locker room swearing and said y'all and some bullshit or whatever you set out there that does it on. Yeah that wasn't thought that was what makes me a little fearful that situation now if I look at it more positive like we've seen Brad over the last few days say some things about this team like we didn't even need to watch film because it's obvious when I came back in transition what I already mentioned between the third and fourth quarters tonight and so he's not a guy who's going to blow up on the team. We just know that seven years in he's not dead. Either one smashed on the clipboard in the pieces like Steve Kerr. So maybe Marcus Smart had to do that job and just really weigh a fist in the team. But you know with what Joe sway said about how he ended the game and how things seem to transpire there. I don't think that's exactly how that went. So no practice tomorrow. I just hope this some good communication because they don't have a long time to fix those things..

"You really struggled to contend with that and like you said or to play for that game I mean the Celtics need to play for chemistry for playoff rotation and all that. But pretty much their seed has been locked up says it came in. With a really big with a great street for them and a bad streak. For Toronto, there was an outside shot and You know they might have slipped a little bit if they lost every single game but for the most part and we said this on the very first show, there were pretty much locked up into the third seed. Absolutely. But but with the difference in that game, I guess what? After that after that game and first of all, let's remember the Brooklyn Nets have really been. They've really overachieved given the roster and the teams that they've been going against. They have really over performed what we would expect them. Louis Kyri comes in and makes him worse. Back Oh totally totally but you know the Celtics took that loss to Miami and they just they kicked gotten there. They got themselves right? I guess and then they played free they play loose and they kind of rediscovered things defensively offensively that they needed and and the other part is also I think cameras minutes helped to balance out some of the roster stuff where I think they were really searching for chemistry now that. Kemba is much closer to the type of minutes that he would be playing in the playoffs I think it really all came together and those last few games, and now the Celtics are in a spot where you have a couple of blow outs a tight tight ish game but really also important to be able to do that against the magic in pull that out and and and have some clutch plays down the stretch. Jason Tatum taking over. You. Really couldn't be other than going undefeated and just blowing everybody out for any other than that. This has been the best possible situation throughout this bubble probably for the Celtics every player has had a significantly shining moment every single one Thais hitting shots from the corner playing great defense getting up in the lane and Dunking Rob Williams what he's been doing even Romeo Langford has. Had some really impressive spot minutes. You have Brown who took over a couple of games shooting really well from outside tatum struggling at the start and that he you know the most recent game that we have what did he go like nine eleven missed what two shots against Memphis totally let it up walkers had some really steady games but a couple of couple of really good. Minutes restricted but he's looked. Nice. Gordon Hayward had big games. KANTER's had. You know really good rebounding. You just go I'm sure I'm forgetting somebody but everybody has had a really really strong game here or there. So very good to see and you know Marcus smart off he had a really good game but the thing about Marcus and you just mentioned it with Kemba Walker. Marcus is in my opinion at this point, there's no question. He's a starting caliber point guard. He's not necessarily the first option, but any team in the league that does not have Chris Paul or an already established superstar point guard would absolutely love to have Marcus smart at the helm leading that directing that offense and making all those plays. How awesome is it though for the Celtics to finally have him coming back off the bench like you said with consistent minutes from Walker because even when Walker was starting in those restricted minutes, Marcus winds up playing like awkward rotations right?.

"By become an all star this season, but his scoring was was really starting to peak right there again separated himself a little bit from the other players to show that he was going to be the GO-TO guy the offensive. Leader for that team and I think this team is to make a run. It has to rely on on tatum. Ability to carry them all offensively and I feel like he's totally ready. I think you'll probably agree with this. Even as good as some of their other players are to to really make a massive difference in playoff games over and over. You've got to have good size and Kemba Walker Marcus Smart. Going to have moments, they may win them into playoff games, but we've just seen not the NBA goes. You've got to be that type of player. That is what Jason Tatum is bred to be, and this is the hundred million dollar question whether we get the answer this playoffs. Not they're going to sign with Max contract in all likelihood this off season, and they're investing in their future, so they're gambling that this is going to be there guy. Well Brian, you mentioned height weight by playing time. The Celtics are actually the third shortest team in the entire league. They don't have starter above six foot eight, and that is interesting, right? The bucks are going to be the top seed in the east. They certainly do not lack height Brian. Do you see the Celtics hike coming back to bite them at all? This is like an audacious move. It didn't get as much attention as the rockets because Stevens did this in the preseason when he decided to do this, but he's like look. My best players are all six eight, and under I'M GONNA put my best players out there when it matters, and and they haven't gone after a big man replacement. This is what the team they want to roll out. And and the reason it's audacious is because. Because the team that's one of their biggest rivals is one of the biggest teams we've seen in recent. NBA History and the phillies seventy sixers. That's a team, but they've struggled with. They like their chances against the bucks against the sixers. It hasn't been so good, and that's why. These seating games are going to matter because guess what today that would be a first round matchup, but I think the sixers like.

"Here on the horn. Today I'm Jay skeets alongside me as always task everybody. We got the bearded one Trey Kerby. Hey we got the international man of mystery taking it to the Max Leila's Fran and last but not least making the magic happen it's GD hello there is and here. We are as always sincere. Thanks to everybody who sent in their questions over the last week. Or so. Got another great batch of cues to tackle today keep them coming email us no dunks at the athletic dot com or tweet him in at no dunks INC or use that Hash tag no dogs. Let's do this issue. Number one high dunks crew with the season now suspended. What game event or player will you miss the most Eric Bledsoe in the finals? Or the Jimmy Butler. Tj Worn remand or for me. It's the see how far Jason Tatum. Kemba Walker Marcus. Smart Jaylen Brown and Gordon Hayward could take the Celtics in the playoffs lovey guys. That's formats in Stockholm Sweden. Thanks Mott's thank you. What do you guys have? What event game rematch? I'm going to sort of cheat a little bit because my answer is any game that we're going to involve two teams involved in the race for the seat in the West. Okay so like if we if who knows at this point I always say this every time if we even have a regular season this year or are we jump right to the playoffs but a missing the potential of course with like the grizzlies they have the spurs and they have a back to back versus the Pelicans and they have a blazers game. The PELICANS have stretch in March Spurs Grizzlies Kings Grizzlies. You know two more games. In April against the Spurs the Blazers. Still in the mix. You know two games in early April jazz and Grizzly. So it's like it's like those games that you know those teams are trying to get into the eight seed like there. They become like sorta must watch games because they're like wow dropping a game or gaining a game in that race for that. Eight seed is of utmost importance so those field. I playoff games already. Saw One hundred percent with you. That's what I had as well because I still have hope that we're going to see. Some playoff matchups. Lakers clippers is a must see to me but I'm hoping that we'll still get some sort of playoffs motte Sunday and thanks for emailing and again. You'll probably still get to see your beantown boys in the plan. Hopefully but I'm with you the race particularly for the eighth seed. Only one of those teams is GonNa make the playoffs but it feels like the playoffs even when they're going for it it's like Zion. Maybe he wouldn't have made the playoffs but he would have had twenty games of a playoff like atmosphere where every game is a must win also would've loved to see the Bulls finally get that three game. Winning streak might not happen. What about you. Well Yeah you guys talk obviously play big picture. They're only go specifically today. Much twenty five was supposed to be rockets. And the Milwaukee Bucks and we would've seen James Harden and Jaanus gold each other after they had their little beef there so call tonight. Tonight would've been the night or would have been. It would have been pretty special guessing. Of course that would have been back from a knee injury by now and just seeing where the rockets were going to be in the in the playoff race in the playoffs standing. Would they still be battling for homecourt advantage in the first round and of course the box they wouldn't be gone for seventy anymore but just seeing how they would have picked up because they hit a little bit of a rough patch there? We noticed they dropped a couple of games and they won't playing the same high quality possible they'd just after the break so I think tonight's game would have been pretty well built up and it just would have been interesting to see if there was going to be any little incidents out on the court day between Yonathan Harden and just to see how everyone reacted so that would have been a special night for everybody stick sticking with James Harden for me. I'm definitely going to cheat on this one as well but I'm GonNa believe I'm going to throw this out there that we are going to see some games. I I'm I'm just going to be helpful right now and I wonder how James Harden comes back from this. I think this is. This is good for James Harden. I think mentally for a lot of players out there. This is kind of a new season. This is a new start for them when they do come back. James Harden has got the REP for being tired when it comes to the playoffs and I think he can wipe the last little while away from everything. It's this is a pallet cleanser and he comes into seasons. Sometimes he's ready. Sometimes he's not but this is like this can be a brand new start instead of that dragged through March and April that they always have. I'm looking forward to seeing Jamesy can do. Yeah that's a good one. Great answers guys right next one. What up new dunks. Nba Nicknames are a frequent talking point on the show. So I was wondering what your first team all nicknamed squads would be that is two guards two forwards and center as a starting five with the best or the silliest or most memorable nicknames of all time skill level is not important here not considered. Here's Mine Rights Gregor Rafer. Alston skip to my Lou. Pete Markevic Pistol Pete Clyde Drexler at the forward motion Clyde the glide little a little bit of hair yeah dramatic named upgrade and of course Charles Barkley the round mound of rebound and Purvis Ellison at the center position. Never nervous purpose or out of service PURVIS which are both fantastic Stay safe and healthy out. There cheers again. That's from Gregoire in Vancouver British Columbia so good nicknames. Solid starting five even bumping up Clyde to the small four position where he could definitely play. No no yeah but what do you have? I mean the nickname king here trae in the know dunks office. What do you have? Do you agree with those or do you have other ones? These are classics. Yeah can't debate them so for my lists. I'm not gonNA be using any of Gregor's players and I'll tell you my background on things. I'm not big on nicknames. That just straight up rhyme. I think it's a little bit a little to easy. That's how you get. I mean it's not a rhyming one but Nikolay Yokich you just call them joker because there are three letters that are the same still. It makes sense. He's tall but like still don't really popping that these days you know what I'm saying I'm also not big on the two thousand era. First Letter of your first name first syllable of your name. J. D. will t MAC. They're fine. We weren't putting much effort into nicknames during that time and I'm also not huge on using nicknames that then became the player's name like a speedy Claxton Bimbo Coles lever whereas kind of their name exactly notable exceptions to every single one of these on my list. Here's my perfect nicknames. Team okay the guards Magic Johnson. Right exactly became his name but he also was a magic player. Air Jordan at the forwards DR J. The human highlight film and at the center. Hakeem the dream. Okay Yeah Great. Those are those are classic perfectly team to yeah would probably be a pretty decent team. So that's those are nicknames that are on the Mount Rushmore of nicknamed Yes to me but my personal favorites list for guards the ICEMAN who react very literally cool nickname also every clip. You ever see of George Gervin. I'm not sure if they were all filmed in slow motion or if it just seems like that but it seems like everyone is like so smooth smooth and he does his little finger. Oh It's beautiful the other guard nick. Swaggie P young. They say you can't give yourself a nickname. But Nick Young did and he became SWAGGIE P. He has had a lot of different explanations for how he got the nickname it came to him in a dream or God gave it to him but his coaches literally were calling him swaggie piece. So congratulations to him on overcoming the give yourself a nickname barrier also at the forwards. Paul Pierce the truth. Yeah got that nickname from shack. Vinick names are pretty basic pretty standard but the truth is an awesome one and if you get a nickname from shack. I think it means a little more yup the other forward John Hot Plate Williams. I love it. I love it. There was two guys named John Williams. What already had a nickname and the other one is a fat cell. Sorry Buddy you're the hot plate now very good very good ad at center. Chocolate Thunder Darryl Dawkins tearing down backboards nickname in his dunks being a sexy guy loosely affiliated with P funk. I do believe chocolate thunder incredible nickname and he got to give a Lifetime. Achievement Award to check. He gives people nicknames. He's had a million nicknames. Himself Shack in itself is almost the nickname. So that's my list. What what is your favorite shack nickname if you had to pick one the big diesel. Yeah yeah that's I do diesel or whatever you big check. Food is pretty weird but he was like basing himself as Kung Fu character early in his career. Yeah I do like Md like most dominant. Never you'd hear that one a lot but yeah I think I do go diesel to. That is a good one speaking of the truth. Paul Pierce have you guys. Seen that the McDonald's all American dunk contest video going around and Paul Pierce and so he's struggling to dunk. But what I found crazy as he looks less athletic than he did when he was in the NBA. And I don't criticize the guy. Yeah he doesn't moving for a high. Schooler Yeah Yeah. Yeah that's true. That's weird pretty impressive. Made it to the League in general and then of course dominated. Yeah and you don't like you'd never were a big fan of his game skeets. Maybe because he was a little lacking in the athletic department. Yeah I was never a Paul Pierce. No doubt this is so strange. He's an eighteen year old kid and he kind of looks like he's thirty five eighty when he's eighteen dumpy hear. That clip is very funny. Okay next one. What's up guys big fan of the show short story with a question for you? My birthday is today. Probably not today and I left on Monday morning to go to Budapest for four days when we arrived my girlfriend and I found out that the borders have been shut indefinitely to foreign nationals and the entire city was on shutdown from three PM. Each day it was amazing to explore with literally no one else around but we came back last night due to the fear of being stuck there for a while so my question is if you had to be quarantined in one city outside of the US for one or two months where would it be. And why note the city in this hypothetical would not be under quarantine but you cannot leave the city you can leave your home et Cetera. But you can't leave the city or there for a month or two. That's from Jacob. Thanks for the question Jacob. Right so you're experiencing the city in this hypothetical at its best because it's bumping it's alive people are out Lee. Why don't you go first? What City Are you picking? Yeah well the city. We go to Quite often as a family is Dan to Cancun. It's actually apply dot.

"WanNa talk about East right now. The East in very held this this year compared to years past teams were getting in with a below five hundred record the top teams in the east right now. You have your obvious contenders yet. MILWAUKEE ocoee Boston in silly. There's a couple teams that have really liked. That can sneak up on some people. This is gonNA sound weird but we're going to eliminate pretty pretty much nine six teams or make the playoffs. WE'RE GONNA ELIMINATE CHICAGO WASHINGTON ATLANTA CLEVELAND AND NEW YORK. Those teams are done. They're not making the playoffs. They're just not going to have key injuries. Suspensions just a bad roster or just don't have a chance I left Charlotte I'd Light Charlotte I hind. Do they have a bunch of average players on a team. But they don't have. They don't have a superstar but then again they kind of go like eight or nine deep and it's kind of like oh all right well. This guy's not bad but the guy that's GonNa lead our team probably not. I think it's GonNa come down to the top ten nine right now. Boston is that Boston Detroit right. Now's a nine seed. They're just out there about three Senate tuned a half games out from Orlando so the house Milwaukee. One Boston to Miami Three Philly. Four DRANO Indiana Brooklyn in Orlando go round out the Eastern Conference Milwaukee Right now is a juggernaut. They're playing out of their minds. They are just playing dominant basketball. Another twenty three. They're ten and one hundred ten two hundred roads oldest. Tell me applying well not only in Milwaukee but on the road. Something scares me about about this team. I this isn't a team. Where if you're honest gets hurt? They're going to be able to stay afloat. If you're honest gets hurt. They might have a bottom vibe author in the east. He's the whole team. Chris Middleton Nice little player and all star last year. Hit some open shots. He's a guy that you can trust where giving the ball. And he's shown when the honest did get her he can carry a team for about three four five. Maybe two weeks of season I just Chris Middleton is just he's a good player he is but I'm not gonNA try he's not at the Klay Thompson Guy You need that number two like Lebron. Add have each other. You have the one you had the to be in that situation. same the clippers. You're the one eighty to one usage relation going to stay in you had clay. You had dream on those. Are Guys that you can trust when you needed. I just needed to stop. You need a shot got you needed somebody to help steph curry for Bronco or JD. Got Back there. I don't see Chris Milton being that dude and yeah this is great. He's all world. He's shooting a little bit better threes. Now he's only shooting like thirty one percent and which is fine for him considering he didn't shoot any three relationship. He needs to continue that for Milwaukee to be in an elite team he needs to be able to dribble the ball out and hidden. Open three because Lashari. Sure he choose. Three and defenders are literally laugh at them. They're like here Bro. Here take this. I'm going to allow you to issue district corner now. He's hitting them some regularity. He's not been seen as bad the hat but he's also eating a splash. You're never gonNA get confused that he needs to keep developing a shot once he keeps developing shot. It's going to help the team. They have some decent shooters around them. I like to Chris Yada Eric Bledsoe. I liked brook. Lopez's even hit some threes form Brook Lopez's though when you have a seven footer. WHO's almost allergic to rebounding the ball? It kinda GIS when I look at the team is youngest. Can't get every single rebel. Well he probably could. He's long enough. He's athletic enough strong enough. You just don't want your superstore having had crashed boards at hard because you don't have big executive rebounds and can be difficult and you honest. It's going to take a toll on him because when he has to play point guard rebound the ball score the ball. And he doesn't score the ball like Steph curry and we. We just went over that he just doesn't. It's it's not easy for me. He's got a pound people down low. He's gotTA drive. He's gotta get it and he can take these hits absolutely to do brick house. But you don't want that for eighty two games and he's not going to rest. He's not doing a stupid load management things and this is why when we talk about. MVP candidates later on in the show. He's GonNa be one of them. I mean he has to be He. Just absolutely unstoppable. The big thing for me in the East is who's GonNa be who's going to challenge. A walkie is a Boston. Listen is it Philly. Is it Toronto. I think Boston has the best chance to beat them. They should have probably beat them last year. But I with the stuff and locker room not buying into highway basically kind of ruined the team. Now they have Kim Milwaukee who I absolutely love they have a nice roster of juice. Good players I mean you have the Marcus Smart Gordon Hayward Eighties Kanter's than Jalen Brown and Jason Tatum. It's great is so much death but when kimber gets in trouble in the playoffs or team start throwing defenders atom. Or you know go get some the team like Milwaukee who can literally just put Gina's on them and give them hell all night. Who are you going to? Who's going to step up and that's the thing you've you've seen games tatum? Step up all guys a superstar then you see the guy. I don't want that guy get him out of here and then you Jim Brown who we just got paid for Jaylen Brown but I'm not aging Jaylen Brown over one hundred million dollars one. He's maybe the third best shooting guard on that Y- You didn't hear that here but you just heard that here. Is I like Boston. They have some good dads. They're literally one injury away from just going away. If Marcus smart gets hurt it sounds crazy. Marcus smart over Kemba Walker Marcus. arcus markets hurt. This team's GONNA be they're gonNA be hurting so if he gets hurt that he's going to be hurt so that's a lot of hurting going on. You don't want much hurting Boston right now. You know patriots a little fragile. Red sox might be trading gooky beds. I'm sorry boss. I won't do that. I won't talk about hurting hurting. It's Y'all all all step away from that Boston. Legitimately I think as the best chance coming at east of debts. Great coach coach. They have a very David superstar in Cam but they just need to continue to get better. I mean once the dude realizes there's potential and he takes over. He gets to passengers games where he just gets to pass a week. Geneva they do take this ball put in a hoop stopping abby passive. Everyone likes. You already stopped doing this. Toronto is surprisingly good this year. I don't know it is because they have you know people are just kind of sleeping on him a little bit because quiet but crm man. I did once do you watch do yourself paper next time. The rapid on TV watch. Crm Dude is a monster. He's long his ass he just he's so good at basketball and you wonder how took them this long the velvet NBA. Drowsy the sleeper team. But I don't really trust I love Benfleet I do trust me. I haven't everywhere my fantasy teams. I Yeah I think he was great last year. I thought I think you starting over call our us. Just not kyle lowry bender. His whole his career he won your title pay him. I appreciate appreciate that. He should get all of his money. I just I don't see you making a deep Rhonda apply gets second. Could definitely get in the second round defensively match outwith Philadelphia Love Philly. I think I think the most talented roster best starting five day but they have very big concerns they are. You're not a good efficient often team when you have ADT team for the players you can't shoot well it's GonNa come back to haunt unit kind of is kind of winning with just just force and having a great roster when it comes down to the playoffs and you can't hit threes or you know Ben Simmons and embiid just isn't working working.
