"10 times. And if they can't make it the previous nine Do I keep throwing them the ball because I'm going to be a facilitator. Kyrie out, Harden coming back from the hamstring and wasn't playing well. I don't look at Kevin Durant as a gunner. There are I can tick off Probably 15 guys that I would think are more volume shooters than Kevin Durant. But if I look at the situation here, Kevin Durant had to do all of this stuff. Do I think LeBron is a better player? Yes. What I want LeBron on my team over Kevin Durant. Yes. But but it's not that I dislike Kevin Durant. I think he's I can look at Kevin Durant and Kareem Abdul Jabbar. As maybe the two most unstoppable players. You can't guard Kevin Durant. And you can't guard Kareem. Got a seven footer with a handle and range. All right. That's a damn good advantage you got there. But is he a better player than LeBron? No, he's not. But we get into these discussions. Then it's an argument. And then all of a sudden this becomes semantics, You know, gifted, talented. It's like Aaron Rodgers. He's the most talented quarterback to ever play the game, not the best. But the most talented, okay? Brady is the greatest because of his resume. Okay? So this became a big deal. But the big deal was really what Scotty had to say about Phil Jackson. And that is that last shot in a playoff game 1.8 seconds to go. And Phil Jackson calls Tony Coup coaches number during a time out in Scotty sits down. Scotty said. You've got to read between the fine lines here with that decision by Phil And then he says it was a racial move to give Tony KU coach arise. How that doesn't bring up of follow up. Question to say, Are you calling Phil Jackson a racist? And of course he is. This is game 3 1994 postseason between the Bulls and next I I got more of a problem with that than I do that He's calling out K D mean Scottie has his opinion. Game is a top 50 players. A Hall of Famer. He's got six rigs. I loved watching him as a player as final all around talent who's ever played the game could do everything that you needed. But Calling Phil Jackson out. How does that not bring about illicit a weight? You're calling Phil Jackson a racist here. But I haven't seen a follow up. I haven't seen a correction by Scotty. But man, can he do a disservice to Phil Jackson? Cause that's just hanging there. It's like a marine layer. You're going. It'll burn off eventually, and I think would be that easy. Alright. Poll question. McLovin, whose career do you want? KD or Scotty Piven? 56%. Katie, By the way, I looked at the ESPN dot com Top 100 list From a couple years ago, Katie was already 14 and Pippen was 21. So and I think Durant might even move up higher. So if you look at it that way, Scotty is a great team player. Not not a solo artist. And if he doesn't have those six titles if he has three titles like he's not a top 50 player of all time, but he was there with Michael. And he did whatever needed to be done to allow Michael to do what he was going to do. They were rock stars. It's like Dennis Rodman did what he was supposed to do. So I mean, Scottie is Keith Richards did not make Jagger And I think it bothers him. I think the documentary the last dance. I think that hurt him. I think Jordan did him a disservice. Now he's got a book coming out. Who knows who he's taking shots at In that book that's coming out. But you know, Michael did him a disservice. Yeah, I'm a club. Katie is 32 Cantonese are women to get another top five Top 10 things you need to win a couple more water is a top 10 player. I think he'll be a top 10 player of all time. Could have won that one against Toronto to he didn't get hurt. Yeah. Yeah, but he did. I mean, magic could have won another title. If he didn't get hurt, Like, you know, Larry Bird could have won more titles if he didn't hurt his back. I mean, the sport is littered with that. Mean, if Anthony Davis doesn't get hurt this year, what happens to the Lakers like you can always do the what if But you got hurt. Um Yeah. Don't know why everybody is focusing on the Kevin Durant. Scottie Pippen, part of this I guess because Durant responded. And if you can include a little secret here, folks, if you can include LeBron into a conversation, you're going to get clicks. Apple. Pippen also said he thinks Aaron Rodgers going to come back on time. I didn't mention that but in the G I didn't see that didn't read the whole article. Is that true? Okay, Speaking of Aaron Rodgers, where is he on the pro football. Focus. Top 50 list. They just put this out? Got some real questions. Here. Take a break. We'll discuss that coming up next.

Steve Kerr: Kevin Durant 'More Gifted' Than Michael Jordan

"Steve. Kerr says kevin durant is more getty. Take it away. Then michael jordan so kerr coaster for three seasons as we know golden state warriors the nba finals all three years. That katie played for them. They won two titles. He was the finals. Mvp in both championships and had amazing performances. Now they could've probably pulled off a three peat if if it wasn't for durant's that that obviously achilles pop it on him against the raptors final season. Now steve kerr also play. Played with michael jordan won two titles with mj with the bulls so his perspective on this obviously is something that is interesting because he played with jordan but coach durant and listen to what he said nbc bay area about kevin durant and his comparison to jordan is the most talented basketball player on earth If not of all time. Honestly he's just so gifted played with michael jordan. And and and i know i think he's more gifted i really do. I mean it saying something but kevin is a different entirely different breed. I mean six eleven With guard skills unlimited three point range passing blocking at the rim. It's just stunning and watching him. This year was really really ratifying to see

"Alright, McLovin. The impossible trivia question. I think it's pretty hard. Okay, if I get it, you get a pie to the face. Yeah, I don't. I don't think you'll get it. Uh, but it's actually not even that Good. Okay, there have been five. Players who have won the sixth man of the year. Multiple times. Can you name all five, Okay? Uh, Eddie Johnson. See Boom. No, it was a trick off Eddie Johnson. That's why do I would get you guys visit? I even have already shot to Eddie yachts and only what it wants. Somehow you got me because I think they put him in the starting lineup. Uh, Jamal Crawford, one Uh, Did they give it out to John Havlicek? No, they start they started in 81. Okay, um or something like that. Did Kevin McHale when you got to That's Jamal Crawford, Kevin McHale. Alright. Um, Lou Williams. That's three. Oh, Ricky Pierce, that's for all right. So I got to to go. No one to go. Oh, wonder you got four of their 5/6 man of the year and he wanted twice. You want to give a hint? If I take the pie off the table, give your head or Do we want to take the pie off the two? Yeah, that's okay. Okay. Friday. All right? Okay. I don't want to get pie on my new crocs. That's really really That's right. Okay. This guy you would never give you. You never were thought He was a six man. Um okay. You liked you had a funny way of saying his last name on SportsCenter. Dead Love Shrimp? Yeah. All right. I didn't know He was a six minute I thought he started. It was with the Indiana Indiana. Yeah, first half of his crew. Then he became a starter in Seattle. It had no idea I can't believe I got for you made me nervous. That's pretty good. That's pretty good. All right. Uh, can we set on the poll question? Yeah, we put up Katie versus uh, Scottie Pippen, Whose career do you want? Take a guess Who's winning? Who's career do you want? Pretty close. I'll give you a head. I'm gonna I'm going to say the audience will side with Kevin Durant 55% Kevin Durant. Mean, that's closer than what I thought. I mean, Scott is a wonderful player. But if Scotty doesn't play with Michael Jordan, Scottie is not one of the 50 greatest players of all time. Uh, I think he might be the best defender I ever saw. Now, Bill Russell was spectacular with what he did. Scotty could guard everybody. But Bill Russell was spectacular. But Scotty would guard point guards. He could guard wings. He could guard big men. I mean, he was He was as versatile as anybody. He wasn't a shooter. He was his score. Um, he did it. He allowed Michael to freelance a little bit more because he was such a great defender. And I don't want to pile on Scottie Pippen. It's just He's saying things first of all, if I if I read this quote about Phil Jackson, people are focusing on Kevin Durant and Scotty talking about Kevin Durant, Kevin Durant firing back This is what I don't understand. And this to me is a bigger story. In this GQ interview Scottie Pippen was talking about when Tony Ku coach was Told that he was going to get the shot. You know that game on the line, Scotty, you know, then finds out he's not going to take the last shot. And he says the following. I don't think it's a mystery. You need to read between the fine lines. He didn't reentered the game by the way, he went and sat down. It was my first year playing without Michael Jordan. Why wouldn't I be taking that last shot? I've been through all the ups and downs the battles with the Pistons, and now you're going to insult me and tell me To take it out. Take it out of bounds. It was pretty low blow. I felt like it was an opportunity to give Ku coach arise. It was a racial move to give him a rise. After all I've been through with the organization. Now you're going to tell me to take the ball out and throw it to Tony Ku coach. You're insulting me. That's how I felt. Okay, There's one thing to say. That's how I felt. But You're calling Phil Jackson. A racist. Where is the follow up question. Like I got to be incredulous to say Wait, wait. Hold on. You've got other examples of Phil Jackson. What? Why racial Did he just make a smart move to put in Tony to coach better outside shooter? And I would say, Let me give Scotty the benefit of the doubt because the word racial just it's like, I don't know where, but he starts out by saying you need to read between the fine lines. That's where I can't give him. Uh, you know a hall pass here. And if I'm Scotty, I get my butt in front of somebody and say something like, unless you mean it Unless you're saying Phil Jackson is a racist here. I would, I would say, Look, I want to correct this or back it up. But We called for Scotty. If he came on, I'd say All right. Are you calling Phil Jackson a racist? I don't care what his opinion is that Kevin Durant, Kevin Durant and LeBron are not the same wonderful players..

"Comedian came at Kevin Durant. He and Kevin Durant had multiple spats. He agreed with Scottie Pippen. He's got the six championships and, Yeah, Scotty, by the way, like Scotty needed Michael to be a team player. I mean, Scottie needed the rigs. So you know, I just It's tough to take something away from Kevin Durant here. His team was hurt teams all over the place or hurt. The Lakers were, which is why they ended up as the seventh seed almost got Eliminated by the Warriors. But I'm not going to crap on a team because they got bounced out of the first round of the playoffs or the second round of the playoffs. Or for a guy who puts on a clinic in Game seven of the West of the Eastern Conference semis and sets a record for game seven points. Unbelievable stuff you grow up, I think in the NBA more than any other sport, the former players Come at the current players like in the NFL is so different about it. You're not gonna get Roger Starbuck coming at Tom Brady. Right? Like I I know that they played a different style of game but seems to be like the NBA players may because it's one generation removed because the game is virtually the same game. However, the style of the game has changed dramatically feels to me like players from the nineties and the early two thousand's love to come at the players here, love to come with the players of this generation and because of social media, everybody's getting their response in, like real time you get to react to things happening in real time, and we do the constant camp of which player is better than which player but I'm gonna go with Steve Kerr. I'm gonna go with the with Scottie Pippen, former teammate Steve Kerr said. Yeah, this guy is the best player on the planet. Most talented player on the planet, maybe of all time.

Bucks Bounce Back to Beat Nets and Force Game 7

"We begin today with the milwaukee bucks going wire to wire to defeat brooklyn by fifteen points last night. Kevin durant scored thirty two for brooklyn but it took him thirty shots to get it. Chris middleton and janta compo- were much better they combined for sixty eight points and twenty seven rebounds and they shot twenty-three for thirty six wilpon does milwaukee's performance lead you to believe they can go to brooklyn and win game seven they can. Yes tony and you outlined all the important numbers all of them. And then there's one that's even more important it's zero number of three pointers jacked up by answers compo- none he didn't do it. He kept his big strong quick fast. Talented self in the space where he should be. Don't eat what you. I've been screaming for even the previous series. He kept himself near the basket and did his work there and stop jacking up those shots now. We know they can do it will they. I mean that's the first smart gamed. The bucks have played in. This series should have won the series already. If they had taken the same tact particularly with onto the kupu. But i do. I have faith that they will go with that same recipe. I don't know that. I have that faith. What about you. okay. So yes i agree with you that they can win right and one of the ways they could win as if pj tucker was able to do to kevin durant again in game seven what he did in game six. Because tucker was plus thirty and durant was minus seven but mike game six was not critical for brooklyn. They had a game to play with because the critical game for them was game five and they want it so for every home team has won. You have to tell me why that's going to change now. I look back on game five. And i see kevin durant scoring forty nine points. He's a great great player. I somehow have faith that if it's up to him to win game seven at home. He's going to win it.

"He means the players and fans, but the tournament is best known for surprise cameos. From NBA legends like Allen Iverson, Kobe Bryant. 10 years ago this summer, Trevor then 19 was hanging out at the park when the Brooklyn Nets Kevin Durant, then with the Oklahoma City Thunder walked in by himself. He came in. This is maybe like two o'clock. There's no one really out here. They kind of setting up. He sat down to play the food. Next thing I know he was suiting up to play. Durant grew up in a mostly black neighborhood just east of Washington, D. C. That's similar to Trevor's experience growing up across the street from Rucker Park. I used to live on Tim Floor up there used to watch the games right out the window when Durant strolled in,.

"Podcast. We'll talk about last night's Clippers victory. Important win for L A couldn't afford to go down three. Oh, and the NBA. Nobody ever comes back from that they did so still without Kawai Leonard. So there's there now down to one going into Game four in Los Angeles, Chris Paul back shot poorly last night. Devin Booker also was pretty terrible shooting last night Combined Booker and Cp three just 10 of 40 from the field. George was solid Clippers were solid, big third quarter helps push them to a game three victory to one series advantage. Sons tonight, Game two in Milwaukee Hawks lead that series one game to none. Elsewhere in the N B. A It's never not. About legacies in the NBA. I know that's a double negative, but It's always about rings legacy. Historical comparisons, always always always And inevitably, a guy like Kevin Durant is compared to LeBron James because inevitably, LeBron James is compared to Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson and others. And inevitably, somebody under Kevin Iran is going to be compared to Kevin Durant. And that's just what we do specifically in basketball, time and time and time and time again. We do it much more so in basketball than any other sport. So K D was asked About I'm sorry. Scottie Pippen was asked about Kevin Durant in a GQ article. And in this article, Okay? Pippen said about K D He can score better than LeBron. Probably always have been able to But as he surpassed LeBron no. He tried to beat the bucks instead of utilizing his team. You see what I'm saying? LeBron would have figured out how to beat them. And he wouldn't have been exhausted. And you may have not taken the last shot. But LeBron eight Katie Katie ain't LeBron Katie is a shooter, a scorer. But he doesn't have what LeBron has GQ writer brings up well, He's a finals M v P twice. Tip and laughed. That's good when you got Steph Curry leading the troops, but when you're leading the troops, you've got to know how to lead and win and Katie as great as his offense was, It turned out to be his worst enemy because he didn't know how to play team basketball when it came down to it. He kept trying to go punch for punch. So, of course. What do you think happened next? You think Kevin Durant has sat this one out? Oh, no. Katie took to Twitter. Didn't the great Scottie Pippen refused to go in the game for the last second shot because he was in his feelings. His coach threw up the play for a better shooter. This is of course, the Tony KU coach came in 94. Katie also tweeted this guy. Scott also wanted to enjoy his summer so he chose to rehab during the season. L o l Your pit They followed, Phil, not you. Okay, So let's unpack this.

Never coached never played college. I'm watching the game. Like why don't they just attack. James harden can't move. Why didn't they do that. That was a mistake. There's no it's houston. I can make for your family like you have to find a way to challenge james harden and not allow him to basically be out there and you really never go at them and the stat stands out to me.

"So we all know the story of how Kevin Durant's career at the warriors came to an end to the way in Durant Greco's down holding his leg. He goes up and down the other end and durant grabbing right leg breaking news on. Cbs sports aid skew. It has been confirmed by Kevin. Durant himself a ruptured Achilles. Tendon has already undergone surgery. How do you think all of that? Impacted his legacy with Golden State and with the team's fans. I think it made the relationship with the fans a little bit better than it would have been otherwise because not only did he win championships for them. He put his body on the line and he suffered. He suffered trying to win something for them. And so that softens the blow of this acrimonious break up and I don't think he's thank the fans are he didn't win. He laughed and has done some things that might have resulted in a bit of a backlash. But it's hard to have that backlash if a guy ruptured his Achilles tendon. Coming back. Maybe too soon to try to get you your feel-good and try to get you that championship. So in a way in that moment I think it was the conservation of his Faustian bargain where he became beloved by the warriors fans but it cost him dearly looking forward to whenever the NBA does resume. Kevin Durant is of course now in Brooklyn and paired up with Kyrie Irving And those are two guys with very strong personalities who both like to be the top dog on their team knowing as much as you do about Kevin Durant. How do you anticipate that relationship and that team working out? Since so many people think it's going to go horribly a most wondering. Is this a situation? Where because we're so unanimous in predicting disaster? It's actually going to work out. Well I don't know all tend to go the conventional wisdom. It seems quite precarious. It seems precarious to combine those two in that situation with an organization that I'm sure is competent. I'm sure there are people within who do a good job at not exactly. Salt Lake Yovany Pat Riley type people running things and that organization. It's not like you have a track record of established glory were. You can tell somebody that you gotta fall in line For the sake of the Brooklyn Nets it seems like a shell That the two of them are running and they're both vol's hold their own ways and they're prone to Moody nist and you wonder about their surrounding talent. And so I guess I would say it's precarious and the smart money would be on it and dean not so happily and lastly Ethan. What will it take for? Kevin Durant to be satisfied Well I think initially the ultimate validation from everybody in the culture that he's the best player on the planet at least would temporarily do that but other than that. I mean. That's that's beyond my pay grade. That's not something I could figure out As to what happens after that moment ads. Well even thanks so much for coming on the show. It's my pleasure. Thanks ravening you can follow Ethan. Strauss's coverage of the Golden State Warriors at the Athletic Dot Com and. His new book is called the Victory Machine. Here are some other stories. We're following the lead after drafting Joe Borough with a number one overall pick last week. The bengals officially put an end to the Andy Dalton era in Cincinnati. He has been released by the bengals which it's not a surprise. Not a shock at all. Joe Borough is their guy. The bengals avoid seventeen million dollars in cash obligation to Dalton. And he's on the market now. He's available the red rifle has been since he's starting quarterback since he entered the NFL in twenty eleven and bengals owner. Mike Brown issued a statement saying quote. Andy will always hold a special place with the franchise and I know that he hold a special place in my heart. Paul Dana Junior of the athletic writes that the thirty two year old Dalton could land with the Jaguars or possibly become the backup to Tom. Brady in Tampa Bay while Dalton coming.

"Greg cosell and five minutes chris hanes sat down and with kevin durant long interview published yesterday. He'll be on the show today t._j. Cushman's on a final hour and jason mcintyre tomorrow's headlines today last ask segment of our show on thursday. I absolutely loved that so by the way before we get to christine forty-five minutes key sat down with kevin durant and kevin durant remember when kevin durant got hurt and then he came back in the finals. What was the first reaction by the n._b._a. Media the warriors fault. They pressured him. It's the doctors doctors. It's the training staff n._b._a. Media in my opinion hoddle's its players because stars run the league and none of the reporters wanna get ghosted by the top players so they suck up to them so in kevin durant got hurt even though he's a grown man on the immediate n._b._a. Media reaction is the warriors made him play doctors made him play in bad training staff and kevin durant yesterday dispelled all of that at non sense and came out and said hell. No the warriors pressured me in the getting back. Nobody ever said a word to me about rehab. When the series started. I targeted game five. Hell naw just happened. It's basketball man blank happens. Nobody was responsible for it so the entire narrative and that was the first reaction by the media that covers the n._b._a. Which is coddle baby. Protect the stars. This is why adam silver says our players are not happy. This is why therapists hell you don't over over complement your kid because when they face crisis in life they won't be able to handle it. Stop coddling the players. They're grown men. They love basketball. They wanna play basketball n._b._a. Media because they're behold into a handful of really popular stars their initial reaction to anything is caught. All kevin durant wanted to play. Wasn't anybody's fault volved. He wanted to play basketball because he's a basketball player and by the way the n._b._a. Media i bring on all the time i like him but what was just basically a nonsense..

"And I do think the reason I'm talking about this. Colli Leonard's taken a bunch of days off load management. It's kind of funny, new term, I didn't buy into it, but he is the healthy guy that appears to have more gas in the tank now. Steve Kerr this from this morning was asked about K D status for tonight. And here we go. He. Yeah. He went through full shoot around and went back to get treatment. And so we'll listen to as game time decision, but the look good and. We'll see where it all. Yeah. So it's kind of bumpy audio but, you know, the, the injury changes really the entire NBA just think, you know, it's the domino effect. Just think of what Kevin Durant injury affects a the outcome of the finals Canada. If he doesn't play tonight, probably has an NBA championship. That's a big thing to listen. They're hockey teams can advance to the next round so you can make an argument that he it is a seismic shift in the culture of Canada, where the NBA team is competing and winning a championship over a dynasty. And makes a massive impact culturally for the next thirty years in Canada, where young kids grow up basketball fans over hockey fans. It has it changes the outcome. It changes culturally, you know, I'm not I'm not trying to hyperventilate here Canada because of their tax system. It's harder to get the world's best hockey players. It's their sport. We can have in play down in Miami. And no state tax Dallas Stars. So Canada's been struggling in recent years, the last decade to get teams to the second third in the Stanley Cup final, now you're NBA team wins it over a dynasty, that is going to resonate for twenty years in Canada. It also rewrites the warriors dynasty a little bit. Oh, so really, they only won one title without K D, And that was because career began, Kevin love got hurt kind of rewrites the dynasty. I also think does it affect Kevin Durant's decision on free agency will hell I'm hurt. What's the point of going plan forty two minutes a night with a bunch of scrubs in New York? I think it affects other stars free agency. Kyri and Kevin Durant sounded like a really cool thing if Kevin Durant, like bro. I'm not moving and kyri by himself to Brooklyn is just what they have now de ngelo Russell all star, good player, not that relevant big picture. NBA. I also think if Kevin Durant loses and stays at affects LeBron in the west. It affects the Houston Rockets. You know, I think there's this, this is a big deal. Kevin durant. Not playing and I know everybody in Toronto you're making excuses. You can't lose MJ. Kobe Shaq magic bird Dunkin Kevin Durant in the finals. It's not an excuse. It's a reason they're not the same team. It's not to say Toronto's, not good. But I. You know, I start looking at this whole thing, and I think the golden life for all of us listening as you age work smarter, not harder. Kevin Durant going to the next off this injury. I don't think smart. I don't think it is. I think it's working harder with less town in people I am for players making more money and the best players playing with the other best players. And, you know, I was thinking about this. We don't like the way the warriors were constructed. We don't like the Kevin Durant chose them. We don't have a problem with how Michael Jordan, and the bulls were constructed even though they added Rodman. They traded for you know, they traded for a bunch of guys. But we don't like that Kevin Durant. Chose the warriors. So as the warriors lose the finals nobody wants to hear we'll because Katie didn't play..

I'll get to that later. I'll Kevin Durant. Here's the injury update the warriors. He practiced according to, to report he wasn't very good at practice. Of course, he did not very good at practice. He's got a calf strain this series. It's three two one Toronto. And I think the series is over. And I think they win tonight. I don't think this is a very complicated series. I said before the series, I think I picked a Golden State in six Joe, you picked what was your final pick? I picked the raptors and seven okay. So. On the wrong side of that one. I think one of the things I said before the series lane is something that fans don't talk about, but every scout of ever known talks about. At a scout. Mark Warkentin years ago, said, Scottie Pippen, twice a game deflected, a ball Chicago ended up with it that gave Michael Jordan to moma's actions. He made one he goes Chicago Bulls won a lot of close playoff games late matters. Well, Marcus all PASCAL Salcombe surge vodka. Kalis one of the longest six seven guys on the planet and who's hurt for Golden State their longest player. Kevin Durant cave on looney six nine missed a game. Boogie cousins is running around the court about sixty seventy percent in the NFL you would call this a cluster injury. When you have three receivers go down or four ofensive Lyman or hurts called the cluster injury. The warriors have a cluster injury with their bigs, and it is a huge disadvantage against one of the biggest longest teams in the NBA Toronto Toronto shooting forty five percent in this series and my take on this. I've watched four games. Now, they're just getting more easy baskets. This is where katie's length. Boogie at full strength length would be a factor. It's not just offense. You're not missing. Just Kevin Durant offense obviously. But Kevin a good defender and Kevin's, one of the longest players in the league Golden State's not getting as many easy baskets. So Toronto, not known as a great shooting team shooting forty five and a half percent. Golden State known as the world's best shooting team is shooting forty three percent. What does that tell you Golden State struggling to get easy looks?.

"Whether or not the severity in are you doing everything you can to get back if the organization field that exact same way how to heal this. Kevin Durant, go back to the situation. Look right now, and we've talked about if they wanted without him how bad it will look for D to me, he has nothing to lose at this point if he's able to play. Now, I don't want him to go out there if he's injured in Caridi risk injury, especially going into a free agent year. But if he's ready to play if he goes out for game five and they lose even if he's not great near okay? He might get a little criticism. But he's not no artery. Nobody's gonna kill him. If all the has is upside as well and they win every time they went out what happens if? What happens if he ruptures, that have whatever injury? I grew he does. I don't think if he's injured and shouldn't go out there and play outweigh vise him non to go play. I'm with you on that. But I think this brings up the question of does he go back there. I think he's probably leaving. That's everything you here. But if they lose this series you can go back in that narrative that they don't need you is gone now, so many question marks situated troughs faster, I hear you're sticking around, so we're going to move on from this because we wanna get your opinion on Steph curry, and his reputation as taken a hit in the final series.

"You have more options, you can do what you wanna do, especially if you have the choice, do it, you're going to do it. Right. I want to stay in warm weather. I'm pretty sure a lot of these guys they wanna come to warm weather. That's twenty years. I've been hearing I heard now. Carmelo went east because he engineered a trade, Kevin Durant trade. So I don't know. It's a. Casino mobile. Good. You see to joy with the news. No, no, no. This is the headline news. Well, you never been a raptors believer all year. No. And a lot of people felt like they were done. They went down to you felt like they were done after the off the first game blue out Milwaukee last night, once one zero to even up the series two piece why Leonard being injured in tired, and Seok them suffering from foul trouble. But why still the damage thirty four minutes and said after the game he will keep fighting? Good can keep going keep fighting. We have a chance. So no make means no excuses you playing basketball. And no, we got to win. So fun to watch everything. I mean apart from the fact that I've been extra extra right about Hawaii, after's. So it's a little enjoyable for me. I was probably equally as wrong about the bucks. Although I did say he all year. I think that what's happening with Hawaii is like I said, we, we kind of just forgot because he wasn't playing because of the way the exit went with the Spurs any also must a bunch of games this year. Yes. Yes. And he did take a lot of rest days this year. We didn't know that he was this goody like it just slipped. Everyone's mind like oh, yeah. There was a point where the conversation was is better than LeBron because he is better on both ends of the co or he, he does play ten and given up a plan. But I do think the raptors end up winning the series like you said, they're kind of, it's kind of the same situation to star in each side, and that would not be a good point. Yeah. Oh, god. I think Milwaukee pushes back a little I, I think the raptors would be got. Got Golden State of Kevin Durant comes back has four dependable scoring. I have no faith going to come back to the vinyl. I think they've, I think they would have I think Golden State would hammer Toronto and five without Kevin Durant, if he just gave him boogie for a little thighs a little size. You think bookies sick? I, I just think Milwaukee. Yeah, here's the thing, Golden State when they face Milwaukee, it's real easy to figure out what they're going to do. They're going to put you on us at the line, and they're going to move the ball and shrink the bucks because the bucks are big, and they're going to play a tiny lineup and they're, they're gonna force Milwaukee to go small, and then it just a blowout. They're going to try to you can't take you on us off the court. But you could take every big except you on us off the court. I think Golden State's gonna chop them up Toronto, I think is complete utter mismatch, especially if Kawhi is not one hundred percent. And right now he looked fire than either way. Both of these teams are going to be fatigued going into the finals. They have had an incredible amount of rest. Nine days very, they're going to have a long series. So Kevin Durant is is known for popping back at fans on the internet, and his manager rich climate isn't bothered by it at all. In fact, he loves everything about it. How do you feel about that, that he gets in there mixing it up? Sometimes I love it. I know enough to know that, that doesn't represent anything more than what it is. And Kevin has every right to gauge and communicate and have fun and banter because he's had thirty one year old man who's built this or thirty year old man, just built this incredible enterprise from self. We have honest, conversations, but never would I call them and say, like that's such a bad thing to do for your brand. With anyone going back at fans on the internet. I do about once every couple of weeks. Yeah..

Can you can't start talking about the great quarterbacks of all time and say Brady in Montana and Elway and Marino Aikman? Jimmy garoppolo. The own favor. Kevin durant? You did this for reason? Because you know, the m j thing. Kind of gets in LeBron's had an kyri take LeBron off in a lot of people. Kobe fans don't like LeBron. You did this for a reason? This was not a coincidence. We know Kevin Durant while you're doing this because you thought as the number two player in the world when you went to Golden State and started winning titles. That would elevate you over LeBrun, and it hasn't LeBron still is the lead story on my show and skip show in any debate showing America that talked to NBA LeBron still the king, and you're just really talented. That's that's your identity. You're not even the most important guy in your own team. We know that through statistics wins and losses in analytics when steps gone warriors are average when you're gone. They're still great, listen, I've said this for years magic and bird save the NBA MJ made it global and LeBron made it mobile when you left teams years ago, you were considered disloyal week. Now, if you don't go to a better team, your money grabber winning doesn't matter. You're a diva your week, you're afraid. Kevin Durant doesn't leave Oklahoma City unless LeBron left I for Miami. And took all the Aero's and took all the heat. Lebron's always going to be a bigger deal than Kevin Durant Kevin's chasing ghosts. He'll never be better than LeBron. He'll never be as relevant as LeBron. He'll never be talked about like LeBron. On LeBron leaves teams, they disintegrate. Kevin Durant left Oklahoma City to the second best team in the west right now Golden State one before him if he left they put boogieing they went after him. It's bothering him first. Lebron was toxic. Now, you're mentioning great players. And you're putting kyri in there. Come on. Kevin. It bothers you just admit it. Let me shift to football. I should I should send a check to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Every year a big check because they fill like five six segments a week ESPN once had to do a year long investigation into New England to get dirt. Pittsburgh gives you dirt about twice a week. They did it again yesterday when New England lost to Miami over the weekend. And it was kind of like controversial. It was embarrassing. Gronk took the heat my fault Brady took the heat my fault. Bella check took the heat. My fault story died. For the third time in about four weeks. The Pittsburgh Steelers. It is now Wednesday are talking about a previous game lost to Oakland as the patriot game is now coming up in a few days. Mike Tomlin yesterday. I swear to God, I should pay the Steelers for all the segments. They give me I don't even have to work for him. I just wake up, and they give me another story. Mike Tomlin paying attention in the rear view mirror to the game. They just lost was asked about Big Ben being healthy and not playing and he got into medical equipment because of the lack of information. We thought that the best thing to do. The most prudent thing to do. With to be only to make been available in a merger. See like situation was exactly what we did in Cincinnati several years ago. The X Ray was not clearly readable clarify what you said after the game that you could have brought them back few series earlier. But we said today that your own seen situations is saying he was cleared a few series earlier decided to use them Burgess situation, again guys, you know, we didn't have a lot of information. So dialogue was a part of the discussion. But obviously this thing has had legs, and it has grown and we want to minimize the senseless distractions. So I'm being very transparent with you in terms of what transpired how and why it's Wednesday..
