"Podcast coming off a big weekend of basketball. That just proves that the equilibrium in the nba playoffs ships greatly on performance venue and most of all health and the brooklyn nets who looked like a sure thing to walk through milwaukee after the two only that they took suddenly find themselves possibly down to one superstar as kyrie irving has ankle problems james harden and still not back. The series is now tied his brooklyn in trouble. Hey is just one thing about them. Looking day had looked great in the first two games. But this is the wisdom of pat riley passed on through jeff van. Gundy okay the bob right. The series doesn't really start until the road team wins a game okay. I'm actually. I think it was joe. Gilmartin who said okay anyway so here so we had to see what it was going to look like and everybody has correctly pointed out that the nets were a couple of possessions away from going up three zip but they did not and now kyrie has away. What lebron have the kept him down. So i know an ankle. High ankle sprain. An ankle sprain but ankle. Sprains are a big deal at this time of year. And if they don't get hardened back. Because i just can't expect the kyrie's gonna play the next game. They they might have gone from two zero up to be a world of trouble and there's no question they are in a world of trouble and and there's no question of the only remotely hopeful sign for anybody that they might see kyrie again. He did walk off under his own. Power if what. That sickening ankle was awful. Didn't you didn't you read that he wa- he left the court on crutches in boot. Now i didn't baal yeah. I'm sure buddhists completely precautionary. I wouldn't mean at the very least. I'm sure i'll yeah but this guy's lucky. He's a incredibly fit young athlete twenty nine. Not saying i'm not guaranteed whenever going to seem again but you would think we wouldn't again now but the point is even if he's back you will not be one hundred percent. They'll be down to not from three to one and a quarter or one and a half stars and if not to It it it of course to the thing has shifted in in the bucks favor at the at the moment. There's doubt about that. I'm jay by say otherwise. Well i think this is just sort of a reflection of the regular season. I mean if you play the playoffs long enough they're gonna look like the regular season and the regular season for the brooklyn nets was injury. I mean that was the story of the brooklyn nets all season long you. They had eight total games where they had all three guys there and otherwise it was. Who's who's who's healthy tonight. Now maybe during the regular season they sat guys a little bit more than they would've and they'll put them in a little faster than the. But i am listening to nash. I'm not hearing james harden's going to play. I'm hearing he's progressing. Well we're all progressing either in the right direction of the wrong direction. But we're all progressing that that's just life at doesn't i don't hear a guy who's necessarily even coming back this series. You know. we've seen this happen before where they talk about. Maybe next game maybe next year. Maybe and they're never there so the question then becomes kevin durant and then what blake griffin joel harris harris. Okay green is that enough. Is that enough to win a game in brooklyn against an increasingly confident milwaukee bucks team now which by the way is playing excellent defense. I mean holds the brooklyn nets to under one hundred points without god right. If you have any idea coming into this series okay that pj tucker would have become a significant a presence in the game. You only played twenty nine minutes yesterday but he is. He plays defense. He's an agitator. And i'll tell you something i don't want to say that game five. Is you know. it's a must win. But they they. They need to win. Because i don't think they're going to go back. And win game six. In milwaukee and ken kevin durant do this by himself. I don't think he can. I would supreme challenge for him. I don't think he. I don't think so. No and as mr tucker's concerned if he's coming my way i step aside and say mr tucker he is. He's just one tough dude he really is. He is not remotely phased he loves to the. He loves this idea of his six foot. Five two hundred and god knows what pounds of muscle on on mr skinny. You know he loves it and he's and he's he's he's very dangerous and in his pot up in the corner here to three. Yeah he's he's to. He's becoming a more important piece of the puzzle. Well durant shot nine for twenty five with him harassing him. Minus twenty three in the plus minus. That's bad and meanwhile jaanus just had you know a janas game. I mean it was insane. You know thirty four fourteen for twenty six shooting. A twelve rebounds plus twenty nine in the plus minus and the bucks were the bucks were what the bucks are when the bucks win. Yeah they get a good game from jaanus in middleton and drew holiday plays well on the other hand. They don't always play this game. We've seen it in the playoffs. So i cannot predict what's going to happen in this next even if durant is the sole superstar because the bucks are not a consistent performing team. We saw the good in the last two games but we saw the bad in the first two games so i think they have won an awful lot of basketball games over the past few years and i. I'm fascinated bobby. I broke broken cover the nba. You were already in the nba. Why are people so tough on the greek freak. Okay because they are because they sometimes. It's it to tell kids parents. When i was coaching little league. I try to focus on what they can do as opposed to what they can't do it which bob jones you think. There's a lot of preoccupation of the fact that he doesn't have a reliable mid range jump shot of course and the game has shifted this. You know the strength of going to the basket is frightening. Good as anyone who has ever played the game because he's seven feet tall. There's never been a more a more reliable finisher on a fast break ever than him And he's got all the index dirty needed and when that takes place. Yeah but the game the nature of the game. Mike assistant the game as we. Well know of of twenty thirty or god knows fifty years ago. It's an which was inside out inside out. Was the way to play basketball. That was that was it now. It's out outer outer space. That's the game and right. And he does it out out out out outer and steph curry land okay. So he he not good at that game. He can make an occasional three. They hold that against them. I mean he had thirty four points doing it his way in an nba playoff game. You're right and yet thing. Mike is free throw thing. So that's that's played hap. How many guys does this happen to eventually from the beginning. Look how lucas free. Throw line and the labs and yeah and of course. This simmons don't get me started on him but Yeah no that's that's the three thousand six legitimate complaint..

"Very, very exciting and be a season that shit. That's a lot of shots, though, that you have to figure out is there enough shots to go around if you have James Harding, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving on the same team? I'm sure they're trying to figure out. You know, when you want to win championships, you have to make sacrifices. And and you have to do stuff to for the good of the team like we did in San Antonio. Uh, myself and Timmy and Manu. We find a way. I'm sure they did three very smart players, and I'll find a way to make it work. The book is beyond all of my dreams. Tony Parker, his four time NBA championship career, all written down both on the floor and off the floor should be a very interesting read. Tony. It's really great to catch up with you. It's really wonderful to spend some time with you. Thanks so much for doing it. Best of luck to you very much. Thanks. Thanks. Thanks for having me take care. My pleasure. Tony Parker joining us this morning here on the show. Okay, more as you have your first. Thumbs up from an MBA potential Hall of Famer and a pretty lost art, a champion, saying James hard into the Brooklyn Nets could work that they would figure out a way to make it work. If you want to win a championship, I like it and let's not forget the next general manager comes from the Spurs and Sean marks, too. So there's a lot of tie ins there to that organization and how to make things work. You're a little embarrassed because I was talking about how You had mistakenly not attached the entire full clip of the best of on podcast Yesterday, Tony Parker was on hold as we talked about that Z Tony Parker. That's one of the legends of an era of basketball. I enjoyed very much, and Tony Parker is sitting on the other end, ready to an interview. As basically I'm bland based in over the fact that I made a mistake when I put up a podcast yesterday. It's one thing to have my mom embarrassed. It's nothing you haven't NBA legend from the Primera of me watching basketball. Sit on the other end and go, man. This producer that this show really sucks, huh? That's basically the way I felt that a little embarrassed that could have been basically any other guest. But I happen to be Tony Parker. The prime gets that book this week, finding out of terrible in my job. Things that you learn this week here on the D A show about the MBA is that it has never been more about the players they arm or empowered than ever before. Some people like that Some people don't like it, but it is the reality. In today's NBA, James Harden and Russell Westbrook. If they don't want to play in Houston, they can bang their pots and pans until they get out. Now the Rockets are trying to push back against that and saying We're okay with you being uncomfortable. We're okay with there being a lot of heat around us. But ultimately, if Hardin and Westbrook want to play elsewhere, they will force the hand of the rockets to have to trade them elsewhere. Same thing goes with where James Harden wants to go if he wants to go to Brooklyn. And Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. Want him there. The net you're gonna be forced to do that. Look at what happened in Milwaukee. Look, it would happen in Phoenix. In Milwaukee. The Bucks are all about making sure that yacht assigns the Supermax and it looks like if they're going to make that deal for your holiday and trade away three future draft picks. They must feel pretty confident that it's gonna happen Your holidays. A very good player, but they're also giving up three first round draft pick If you're really good look, those first round draft picks for the end of the first round. Those are Jilly guys. Not a big deal. Those Air flyers anyway. But if you're in the lottery, three first round draft picks are devastating to lose. So the bucks known we've got to make it enticing to stay. Build a winner. Because the moment Yonas leaves, we're back to being the same old bucks. Same thing is happening in Phoenix that money that Chris Paul earns is Big money. Chris Paul is nearing the end of his career, and he's gonna be making more than $40 million each of the next two seasons. The sons are bringing that on and trading away a first round pick. Because they want Devin Booker to be happy. They know that Devin Booker their franchise, and they want to make sure Booker has a running mate and that Booker wants to stick around and does not get angry and bang pots and pans until he gets out of there. This is about it N BA, where the players are right now holding the G M's hostage. And in Houston. It's it's fine. If rockets ownership and the G M wants to say you know what? We're going to run a hard line here, but ultimately they will lose the hard line. Think if James Harding goes to Brooklyn. There is no excuse for the next not to win an NBA championship. There is no excuse as great as LeBron and a. D. R. Have the three scoring options of Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant and James Harden is devastating is a devastating array of options. It is very much like Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant of the Warriors. Except Clay Thompson to Steph Curry mostly get their points from beyond the arc. These three guys can drive to the hole every single play. If they want to hard, it is a genius and drawing a foul or kicking out. Kevin Durant is one of the greatest shooters and finishers ever and Kyrie Irving might have the best handle going to the basket of anybody in the NBA. These guys would have absolutely no excuse not to an NBA championship, and yet they be the most fascinating Science experiment because all of them have a yeah, but You have the Ken Kevin Durant carry the pressure of a championship on his shoulders and not be part of the Warriors. Kyrie Irving.

"I, expect a max contract coming like it could be applying it that way as well. I mean I didn't think about that. That's a good Durant's mom wonder proud was on. Good Morning America. I believe GMA this morning, you know, talking about Ken. Kevin Durant situation. And, you know, she was asked, we I think we actually have the sound somewhere. She was asked about whether the warriors pressured into comeback or AVI. I don't want to paraphrase, but, like whether he felt the pressure to come back. Right. And she said, yes. And I mean, and look, she also said that she was excited for Kevin to come back as well. So I mean you know, the, the devil may be in the details with this. But, you know, this is the type of thing also that could be leveraged to make the warriors feel a certain obligation to make sure they take care of Durant. I mean look players around the Lima, they should take care of Durant. If you wouldn't you maxim, I would. Yeah. I would, you know, like who cares maximum. Yet. You, you should maxim in less. You really have reason to believe there's no way. He's coming back, right? Yeah. What did you make the offer? Yeah. I don't think anything hurts in view. The warriors in making the offer. No, no. I mean with everything that went on. And with him coming back in, especially if you know, deep down, you know, we might have pushed him out there, right? Yeah. Oh well, I think that's why Bob Myers was crying. I said this on the show last night, which is I feel like. The way they reacted particularly Bob Myers. The crying. I'm not saying that wasn't genuine remorse. But I also think it was manufactured out of guilt, not that they meant that it was manufactured, but the it was manufactured out of guilt. Like, the, the reaction was because he felt guilty because listen those stories about the warriors wondering when he was going to come back. You're gonna come back. All that's just come out of thin air that down from the warrior, no doubt. Yeah. Now, what's interesting, those, the idea of where the guilt comes from does the guilt, come from the idea of an external pressure that's being created from within the organization that Kevin Durant, feels and effects his decision to come back. Does it feel like guilt over our we may have mishandled the situation like I don't believe in, and I say this because I've seen people accusing the warriors of this. I don't believe that the warriors pressured him in any bad faith way. No. I just think they were like dude. Are you coming back? Are you coming back? Are you coming? Let's you're kidding. The car when you're on the long road trip. Are we there yet there yet? Are we there? But I do think that the warriors didn't believe that Kevin Durant was seriously risking, no this Steve Kerr said that numerous times to Rachel Nichols, as they were walking from the podium, like he was, I can't believe this happened like the doctor's telling us, he's, she said, he repeatedly said they said he couldn't make it worse. Right. And look, I'm sure Kevin Durant didn't think that this. Would be made worse because there's no way he's going to go out there and chance blowing his achilles. Right. He's not he's not going to do that. Right. But he may Bob Myers might feel guilt about the idea of. Okay, this was mishandled. Yeah. In some way, and look at Durant. I felt like crying was a little over the top though. I said yesterday, I still feel that way. Again, I think some of that is guilt. I mean, look, here's what would have been over the top like glory, tear just like one single to you're coming down. Bob Myers face that, that would be overdoing it Kevin Carson or no. Thank the Lakers. Potential deal for Anthony Davis. Hello. Yeah. Kevin Kennedy like it or you don't like it, buddy. One of the point out the makers cannot miss you. The number four pick. And what I'm saying is, is a play out there that was just set a possum everyone else. But he's being overlooked right now. Jared Culver is Mendy bowl sun mobile feeling bowl bowl with pick bowl. Bill is also coming off an injury bowl bowl is a good player..
