"Hand, the nets the Nets have been great all year. Yeah, they had some disappoint losses and the four game losing streak until last night there come from behind Win. Like they had over the Nuggets, who are a little bit shorthanded. But we know we know what Kyrie and Durant and when they get hard in there. We know what they're capable of. We know they're very good. Their price still not gonna be good enough defensively, but offensively when they could put up 140 on any given night in the playoffs be a little different, right close to 220. That's the way the game is officiated and how the possessions are a little bit different. In the postseason. Yeah. I mean, I'm excited about that. They were a good team. The Nets have been good all year. Yeah, they had these struggles late, but they have been a good team all year, and they're the number two seed right now. They're half game ahead on the Milwaukee Bucks, a team that just beat him back to back games. So it's not as if the Nets the Lakers were frauds. This year, they were really good. But when I look at the games Miss Anthony Davis 35. LeBron James 24 Schroeder eight. Since he's Bit on the team and missing these games of late. The Nets. Kevin Durant 33 James Harden, 20 Kyrie, nine. When he just decided to take a sabbatical. It's so join early in the year. He's just gone. I think this could rub fans the wrong way. If if it again goes to show and I think a lot of people already have this thought about the MBA. That? Hey, wake me up. Not when the playoffs start wake me up when the finals start. Because that's going to be the message. If these two teams end up meeting each other that it doesn't matter who your coaches They're people that I'm sure if I would ask, have no idea who the Lakers coaches while he's a champion now, and he's always been a good coach. But he's a champion now after last year. On Steve Nash. With Absolutely no experience. And there were some some other coaches, so I'm sure we're not happy. They didn't get the chance to work with that team. He just gets tired is the head coach and I know they have a great support Staff, a great group of assistance. But Steve Nash as your head coach. And that's all. It takes a team that has injuries all season long a team that As a star player. Just leave the team unannounced. Not even tell the team, not even an explanation as to why And when you just roll the balls out, come playoff time. That team could just make it work and go to the finals. What does it say? About what? It's supposed to be the journey of the NBA regular season. If that is the case, you could never get away with this in the NFL. You just couldn't the game does not lend itself to that. And even last year? Yeah, they threw Tom Brady. Hey, Tampa Bay Box Semen? Yes, They won the Super Bowl, so I'm sure some of your say Well, wait, wait. What about that? That seems a little en bas. It does. I don't think that will be the norm. I? I really don't and you know they want what they were seven with a seven and five. At one point, the Bucks did have their issues, but Things came together and then you remembered. Oh, they have Tom Brady and even play all that great in one of the playoff games, threw three interceptions. They still want it all. I think that's the exception rather than the norm, the MBA. I mean, why would any of these players ever with their guaranteed contracts? With all that money that they have. Why would they ever put forth effort again in the regular season? If it is just going to be a collision course. Between the Lakers and the Nets. And so while I would love to see those two teams and see all that talent on the floor at the same time, and I think it be a great serious, why wouldn't it? Why wouldn't it be a great series? I don't care how bad the Nets defense is. They're still gonna win games. They just are I'd probably picked the Lakers to win the title if it's Anthony Davis and LeBron. Big shocker there, but who is not signing up for that? Watching. Can you imagine the storylines? First of all, Kevin Durant. And LeBron going toe to toe again. After the back to back finals. Here's a few years ago in which you could make the argument. I know LeBron and have as much help, but you could make the argument Kevin Durant outplayed him. There are there are key possessions where Kevin Durant was getting stops on LeBron and where Kevin Durant was burying threes from from 28 ft. Away. Writing LeBron's face. Okay, That's one story line. How about James Harden. James Harden, finally. Getting over the hump the proverbial monkey off his back. We're going on a great playoff run and having huge moments in the playoffs. Would be enormous. About Kyrie. Going up against LeBron. The guy that he helped win a title. Remember? It wasn't LeBron That hit the big shot. He had the big block a Della, but who is the one who hit the big shot when nobody could score at the end of At the end of that game in Game seven. Golden State. That was Kyrie. So the story lines are great, and I want to see it. I want to see those two teams. Well, what is the average fan saying? And what of the players doing going forward? If we're just gonna fast forward and see the Nets and Lakers After this kind of a year after this season, when guys missed all these games when I was never chemistry.

"To the wire with not only Bradley Bill who went off Last night for 50. In overtime. Whatever the Pacers, but also Kyrie, Irving, make that Steph Curry Kyrie did have a big night but Steph Curry 49 like 23 minutes. Off of the Warriors. He's must see TV. Every game at this point. I don't care how much you hate the warriors, or you hated the fact that Kevin Durant went there and that was the Warriors in the finals Every year. You have to watch this. If you care at all about basketball, any level, you have to watch Steph Curry and what he's doing on a nightly basis, the best he's ever played. Which is pretty incredible, considering he was unbelievable on that 70 to win Unanimous M V p season. When they did not win the championship. He's must see TV every single night. So I did say going to the brake. That I want to see the Nets and the Lakers and finals. I think most people do. It's the star power. Of an NBA finals between those two teams. If we can get to there, and if they could be in all healthy, the star power on the floor. It would remind me of what I saw. In 2017 when The Warriors and the Cavs battle that I was fortunate. I got a great seat to be able to see those But if the one thing you see these guys warm up, you see Kevin Durant, Clay Thompson, Steph Curry and Draymond Green and Egg would Allah who at one point even Wanna NBA Finals M V P. When you saw those guys warming up with LeBron Kyrie, Kevin Love you, J. R. Smith. Out there. Itwas incredible. You knew that those players were all going to share the court and every play every possession. There would be these three story lines. Could this guy guard this guy? And what would that look like? And you're going to see dunks and you're gonna see The deep threes as that was becoming involved in the NBA. Now it seems a little more normal. You see big defensive plays at the rim. You see it all you'd see ball handling, you'd see almost a ballet with players and their incredible footwork, making their way to the basket. And you knew that it was the best players in the world. It's a big reason why I want to see this with the Nets and the Lakers. And look, you might not be happy with the way that these teams were assembled. You might not be happy that guy's just decided takeoff time like I re earlier in the year. That LeBron James says he's medically cleared, but for some reason Hey, just decide not to play the last few games. Whatever. I can put that aside if you can entertain me during two weeks in the summer. That's how it's always been my entire life. Remember going to basketball camp and seeing the Bulls and the And the Utah Jazz and call Malone and John Stockton, Jeff Horn, a sack against Pippen and Jordan. And yet Phil Jackson on the sidelines. And there were moments stuff that I will remember the rest of my life and I don't know. If the NBA you'll ever claim that kind of territory again and those indelible marks, But I remember it. It's etched in my In my brain forever. That made me a basketball fan forever. And so can you imagine? Seen LeBron And Anthony Davis. Kyrie Harden, Kevin Durant and how Blake Notice. I didn't say Andre Drummond. We'll go over the Lakers record with Andre drumming in the lineup. What That's what I want to see. And that's what most of basketball should want to see. But I also said before the break That it's something That might be bad for business Long term for the MBA. Because this season and I understand there were complexities to the season. And how hard it was going to be to try to cram essentially two seasons in a short period of time. And it was a way for the MBA to try toe recoup some of the money lost from last year where they had no fans there to go to a bubble. This was a sizable cost for the MBA. Yes, ratings are down. Ratings are down for everything. I'm almost sick and tired of seeing the stories. About how the ratings are down all across four. It's every platform everywhere. But I'm trying to think About some of the themes that are gonna be discussed. And what NBA fans and not the die hard because they're gonna be there no matter what. But those casual NBA fans what this could signify. If you were to fast forward in the late May and it's the Nets and the Lakers. First of all, Let's Let's think about urgency here for a second. It's not that the Lakers Weren't having a very good year when LeBron was healthy. They were. They were maybe the best defensive team in the MBA. And you wanted the again see on a nightly basis anytime that LeBron and Anthony Davis were able to play together. You knew you were watching greatness. And you wanted to see those rules solidify that you saw it last year. Certainly in the playoff run Anthony Davis with the clutch shot. One of the most clutch shots you could have. But nobody will remember it because that bubble season was so weird. That bubble playoff format be new LeBron. Let everybody know again. Hey, I'm here. End of the year. I'm the best player. Nobody's close. But you wanted to see them replicated throughout a little more of a normal season. At least as normal as it.

I never thought of it that way like when you're twenty one would probably be tough to be the slim repeal like a rather wait till to. Cook, did you like the ranch? No. Okay. You that one's Kinda Corny. Yeah. Can you went to the White House in kind of two fifteen point sixteen year and I understand there was a private meeting between you and President Obama. A. anything you can share or is there something about Obama the that inspires you that motivates you role model anything we talked about some stuff that how can help in my community you know being from that area So we talked about different things, different programs that that can help with. Well, side is a huge basketball fan. So at that point, I was just going into free agency and everybody in the world wanted to know if I was leaving the thunder. So that was the first thing he asked. Gone. You can't. You can't go there with those those those shooters over whatever too much. I was like in my mind I was like that's why I'm going. Yeah but now he's a he's a huge fan of the game and you could tell that he loves watching. Did you. If, you played with him would you let him score? No I'll play woman before you did and how was his game? It was cool. You know you don't really want. I was twenty one at the time. So I was really nervous to really get into it and I was it was a it was a more and after a long light. So's you don't WanNA fight by had secret service. Snipers. Right. But The play play who's was don't like I've Seen Obama play and he clearly knows how to play but there's definitely an element where he's had he's probably put up some numbers that may be are slightly inflated definitely because I mean how hard defensive of right on the president right I don't think yeah, I. Don't think your hand checking the president also can't you're at a point in your career? Will you've pretty much done at all and? You've reached a an economic level that as a kid, you never dreamt up as it all of us really either were lucky to be doing this.

"kevin durant" Discussed on The Lead

"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. Brady's replacement in New England put seems more unlikely also on Tuesday Little League president and CEO. Steve Keener made an unprecedented but not totally surprising announcement. We are formerly announcing that. We are canceling a little league. Baseball World Series in Williamsport Pennsylvania.

"Ethan Strauss's first year on the warriors. Beat was the year Steve. Kerr Steph Curry Klay Thompson. Draymond green and crew Harrison. Barnes won their first championship. He's covered the team every year since I re- SPN. After the athletic his new book the victory machine the making and unmaking of the Warriors Dynasty is about what the subtitle says. It's about There's a bit more emphasis on the UNMAKING. The central figure is Kevin Durant. Who came to the warriors in two thousand sixteen helped push them to two more titles than decamped for Brooklyn last year after getting hurt and Golden State's finals loss to Toronto of that injury in game? Five Ethan writes. This was the night of Kevin Durant's redemption and also the consummation of his Faustian bargain for years he'd wanted love and recognition from a Fan Base. That wanted to be the hero on June tenth. Twenty Nineteen Kevin. Durant was finally their hero. It just so happened to cost him his Achilles Tendon joining us now fully end then Sherwood stress congrats on the book. Thank you so much as a hell of a summary and I also agree. I think there's more focus on the unmaking because at least a literary perspective It seems that's what draws us when it comes to the NBA when it comes to the great teams. I mean you see a lot of excitement for this Jordan. Bulls documentary the last dance. David Halberstam's famous breaks of the game is about the Portland Trailblazers after they were successful. For whatever reason. I can throw in shacking Kobe as well That seems to what draws us when we look back it's the personalities white can't stay together Rather than the great basketball the rise perhaps because that's an easy to consume product in writing about. It's like dancing about architecture. Whatever metaphor. I'M GONNA start way up in the clouds kind of already there. I'm there I can join you there and reading the book it struck me that it's not about who what when where or even how not even how you've been it's about why and it's not about answering why it's about asking why and not knowing the answer in life. I think that's our most common state is asking and not knowing and one of the big wise with the warriors is about proper distribution of credit. Did they win? Because of Joe Lak- taking over from an owner. Who never won anything. Did they win because of staff did they win? Because Steve Kerr brought something new to the team and later did they win because if durant or could they have one without him. These are all questions. You kind of ponder in the book so why is it worth asking these questions? If it's impossible to know dancers. I mean that's very existential. I think I mean that's that's almost talmudic. Thank you as far as what is the? What is the point to when it comes to struggling with these answers and we don't know them to me? I just like to think about things and be as honest as I can. I think it would be a much easier book to package if it was like some of these sports books of a certain category and I'm not trying to slight them or insult them but they have a perspective where this is why success happened. This is the blueprint for success. Take this to your board meeting. This is what you can apply at your company We've seen genre that. Obviously moneyball is a great book beyond all of that. But that's a lot of the appeal. It's this Oh man I can find market inefficiencies. That's why billy being one. He found a market inefficiency and he found players. Other people didn't have it turns out. The truth is a lot more complicated there. And the reasons the as one Don't just redound to that. But it's a better story to package of you have one answer. Unfortunately when I looked into the question of how the hell this all happened. I didn't have one answer. There was a lot of luck involved. There was steph curry on this incredibly cheap contract when to MVP's and wild Joe Lak- taking over the ownership from Cohen made a tremendous amount of difference. Even there. It was a little abstract as to what the difference is. And what it means. And so Yeah I I wish that there were easy answers. I just didn't find easy. Answers looked into it. I thought it was interesting that you chose not to and I think this buttress as what you're saying you chose not to structure. This is sort of conventional sportsbook. It's not a chronological narrative. Written in some distant third person about how this great team came together and how it fell apart. It's much more organic in in the writing. It's much more essays in the writing and to the point of Dumb Luck. I mean what I what I love about the way you do. This is that you don't shy away. From these details. The fact that the new warriors ownership attempted to trade steph curry and Klay Thompson for Chris. Paul in twenty eleven the fact that the draymond green was selected in the second round after they had taken to other players before him. The fact. That Steve. Kerr wasn't necessarily the first choice to become the head coach of this team. I mean a lot of it is total dumb luck and the more we understand that total dumb lock with some you know residue of design to of quote branch rickey behind it is what makes teams successful or not is. What really is a play here? Yeah and it seems like the arrogance of Light Years Joe Lak- with his chest puffed out. It is so strong that if you brought these details to them into him their attitude would be. Yeah well we would have. We would have been great even despite this road fork were. We took the right path instead of the disastrous path. Yeah you know. We'd Gotten Chris Paul in that tray. We would have built a contender in a Titan with Chris Paul at the helm of it. I do think that's the perspective of it all. And maybe it's important to have some of that organizational arrogance but it is amazing when you look back on it. How much they're just wasn't there wasn't a plan in the way that you would think there was a plan and a lot of it was happenstance and a lot of it was dumb luck and I think we don't like that as human beings we we. We like to ascribe some sort of plan to the whole thing Injuries are like that too and teams have a bunch of injuries often. That happens because they're not doing a good job as far as training as far as knowing when to rest guys. But we don't look at that as probabilistic. We say that it's a freak injury. It's freak. It's out of nowhere who could have predicted it. We like to ascribe We often ascribed to lock the bad things. And some of the good things we ascribe to skill or two vision at some version of the successes. Many fathers failure is an orphan. I suppose so. The most common way that we connect players personalities to their on court personas is with the simple narrative of obsessive. Nass leads to greatness or with Michael Jordan obsessive slash psychosis leads to greatness and you saw that with Kobe Bryant as well with Kevin Durant the kind of obsessive nece they you document and has been documented amply by others over the last few years. It's a different kind of obsessive nece in one. That doesn't really seem to have a clear connection to why he's great as a player. Do you think that's fair? Not necessarily I think that obsessive nece does have a connection. I think the insecurity that we see permeate much of his public life has something to do with why he worked so hard to get where he got. And that's not the complete explanation but There elements to his biography. How peripatetic. It was and how this a source of comfort this grounds him in a way. It's a place where he has a lot of control the basketball court so I do think that there is something to his personality. That's that that has something to do with the greatness but it also seems like we don't like seeing all of it that we like an idea superficially of a story of obsession and how it connects with greatness will laugh at Michael Jordan having cheated at cards cheating and Old Lady at cards. And that's part of I e so competitive all my God Mike but when we actually get a full dose of the Michael Jordan Esa Michael Jordan. Let's say at the Basketball Hall of fame speech he gave we we we pull back we go. That's a little bit. Who is a little bit too close? We didn't want to see all of that. And it seems like Kevin Durant is very much that guy for this era. We're where we have so much access to athletes and what they're thinking that we see some of why he's great personality wise but it also makes a lot of people recoil or want to withhold the praise because the insecurity is so palpable. Even obviously Kevin Durant is a central character here and your relationship with him some a piece of this book in the conversation here. Can you talk a little bit about when it became apparent? Because there's a there's a guy that says durant is a different dude. All superstars a fucking crazy but like durant is a different dude. Like when was that most apparent to you in like your relationship with you. And you're like Oh this guy's not like dealing with all the other NBA stars. I've dealt man well. I heard. Obviously that is different dude going into it even talked to him a little bit about being different Dude But. I think it's just how he okay. I think one moment was. He was complaining about He was complaining about what some random twitter person was saying at him and I didn't know the random twitter person was initially made it sound like it was somebody with some clout or some following. But it turned out to be. I don't know thunder fans six one nine two right. It was just some random and Kris Haines reporter at Yahoo says the Katie. Were on the locker room. Man You're sensitive and and Aramco's yeah I am sensitive. What's wrong with that and it was just something. You typically hear the locker room. It was a very different thing to say and we didn't have anything to say back to them. In a way it's very that aspect is very healthy that he knows that he has a certain emotional range and isn't ashamed of it but it's not something you commonly see in the NBA and it's say the stuff better stuff really got under his skin right. Yes this stuff better stuff for people that don't know there is a contingent of warriors fans Andy and say that have talked about it started off you know sort of mocking Lebron fans. Maybe but then it seemed like it was weaponized in some ways but some other people that were not andy and Sam that stuff was more central to the warriors success than Katie. Is that a fair. Yeah rendering it. Yes so yeah. So that really got under his skin correct..

Does he feel different different than interviewing the other stars. You sit down with yeah. He does he does he's. He's a low maintenance guy. You know kevin's like all he wants to do.

"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..

We gotta do a radio show which you started in radio, and I started in radio and so join Taylor ni-, this, these are like the good old days. You started in Miami radio. Yeah. That's a good first market. Why went to school there? So that's a big market has started. It is it is. But that's I encourage people to intern. That's how it works. That's did you intern? I enter my first job was actually the place that I had my first internship. Oh, that's so they must have you must have been a good intern half of them. I can't get out of the building fast enough. You're one of those interns. Everybody's like oh, yeah. She could actually work here. I mean, that's the goal of internship. Yeah. So we kind of a screw off week. When a mean by that it's fun. It's loose and we'll just were knocked off obviously because of the women's World Cup which tomorrow, the United States plays, actually and excited for that much more dependable than our men's national team. 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. We're going to discuss that right after this. Ways core. Pool is not a bus ways core. Pool is not a taxi ways core pool is not the metro in DC writers ways core..

"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..

"And then just throw Applebee's in there and thing I'm not not notice it, you got an agenda. You gotta bias. 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..
