"kevin durant" Discussed on Open Floor: SI's NBA Show

"This team is a 7 seed for a reason. And going into the series, there was a lot of a lot of respect for Kevin Durant, of course. But he's going up against the best defense in the league, a defense that is basically constructed to there's never been a defense that could successfully shut him down. But as good of a defense as he's ever faced in his life, Tatum is the best player in the series easily and just dominating the one on one matchup guarding Durant. As the primary defender in every game. So in terms of his legacy, this will be if they do lose the recording this on a Monday afternoon. If the nets do lose if they're swept, this will be the second first round series to ran has ever lost. He's a great, great, great, great player. I don't think this impacts too much of how we should view him. I think that how the nets have been coached, how the nets have been constructed, their decisions as an organization are much more emblematic of their struggles in this series. And so that's where I'll leave that. I think the way that Doran has been defended has been magnificent and sure, he could hit more shots, but there's a lot of issues going on in Brooklyn. Yeah, so first of all, I'm with you. I think his legacy is, I think his legacy is he's the best scorer ever. And I think he's undeniably like a top ten talent ever. I think kind of where the resume or accomplishments ultimately end up might be a little bit up for debate. I think if we want to go there, I think in a vacuum, most of us would say he's a better player than Steph Curry, but I think Steph is going to finish his career and rightfully so as the more accomplished player..

The Confusion Behind the NYC COVID Policy

"Kevin Durant, talking about the strange COVID policies of the mayor of New York. One of their players, his name is Kyrie Irving, he's not been vaccinated, but because of the law in New York, he can not play. In New York. On the road, however, he can play. Now get this, a visiting opponent in Brooklyn in the same stadium where Kyrie Irving can not play can play even if that player has not been vaccinated. Let me see if I can get this straight. Kyrie Irving has not been vaccinated, he's a member of the Brooklyn Nets. Because of the law in New York, he can not play with his team, but on the road he can play. Even though one would think on the road, he's jeopardizing health of his teammate and his opponents just as he would be jeopardizing the health of his teammates and opponents in Brooklyn, if he were to play, not being vaccinated. However, an opposing player who's not been vaccinated can come to the Brooklyn Nets stadium, where Kyrie Irving can not play because he's not been vaccinated, even though that player has not been unvaccinated, and that player can play.

"kevin durant" Discussed on ESPN Daily

"But I'm also curious Kirk how unusual this is in the context of age. Because at age 33, right now, Kevin Durant is allegedly well beyond his prime and so what is the data say about how players in general tend to change their games as they start getting up there in years? Yeah, well, generally when you think of an aging curve and MBA score, a lot of them, whether you're talking about Michael Jordan or LeBron James or Kobe Bryant or Carmelo Anthony, when they're young men, they attack the paint, the teeth of the defense, their springy, they can bounce back off the floor and not get hurt. And as they get older, they sort of lean into jump shots more. We saw this from Dirk Nowitzki, obviously Kobe, Michael Jordan. Like as a rookie, Kobe Bryant took 37% of his shots within three feet of the rim. In his final season Pablo, that number dipped to 9%. Carmelo Anthony attempted 45% of his shots as a rookie within three feet of the rim. Last season that figure was just 6%. For Kevin, it's not dipping that much, but his activity in that same zone has been cut in half as we watched him go from sort of a young man to a 33 year old trying to come back from these lower leg injuries. It feels retro, man. It feels like there's a vinyl aspect to this. The idea that Kevin Durant is doing the stuff that was cool, like, I don't know 20 years ago now, just how stark of a cultural renaissance is this for the mid range jumper. Well, before I get into the numbers, I do agree that it's really cool and a throwback sort of way. And it's beautiful. It's a great point just the aesthetics of this, right? Because the three as an aesthetic object, as much as Steph has single handedly done as much as anyone possibly could to make that as maximally cool as it could be. The two point jumper man, it's way more cool. Yes. The difficulty of trying to spring open a two point fadeaway jumper. I mean, that's the stuff that gets my 90s NBA fan nostalgia until. The craziest that we dug up of Durant this season is not just as efficiency, 98% of his shots or jump shots are contested. That's the highest number in the league bob low. And when you watch the game, when you watch Michael Jordan or Kobe at their absolute best, they set it to their opponent's faces. They got into the teeth of the defense and they shot in your face and Dirk did it too and there was nothing you could do about it. Like, yes, another Kevin Love catch and shoot three is worth three points. And that's more than two points. I get it. But as a pure fan of the sport aesthetically, there's something cooler about doing it to your defender in the face. And that is kind of gone. Kevin is making that cool again. I do realize now that we both sound like Michael wilbon, Kirk, so let's go. Let's inject some enlightened mathematics here. So just how stark is it, though, that this is happening at this moment given the trends around these types of shots in this sport. Since Kevin entered the league on Halloween night in 2007, the league's three point rate has nearly doubled. It was 22.1%, meaning 22% of the league's shots were three pointers when he started as a rookie. This year, that number is 40%. That's nearly doubled. Much of that growth has come directly at the expense of mid range shots and Durant's rookie year NBA shooters attempted 32.9% of their shots in the mid range this season that figure is just 13.1%. That's a huge drop. Wow. Yeah. So Durant's taking 43% of his shots in that same area that the league is now taking only 13% of their shots. And the last time I was on the daily, I think we talked about Russell Westbrook, who will always be associated with Kevin because they grew up together as members of the Oklahoma City Thunder. Yes. And I think it's particularly interesting in the context of Westbrook who has not been able to sort of evolve into a great jump shooter and whose overall efficiency as he ages into his 30s is up on trial right now in Los Angeles. Right. And part because he can't hit the exact same shots that Kevin can hit from ten, 20, 25 feet away. I think what's most noteworthy here is that Kevin Durant is on pace to win his 5th scoring title only Michael Jordan Wilt Chamberlain have done that. And if he does it, he's gonna have done it after an 8 year sort of hiatus from that trophy, which would be the longest such gap. So he is threatening to win a scoring championship doing it in a way that Kobe or Michael would do. Which definitely please his old heads like will bond and let's face it like myself who grew up watching Michael and sort of was trained to think that's what great players should be doing. So Kevin Durant fundamentally is a conservationist curve. He is a throwback to a different time, and also somebody who's trying to protect these endangered creatures. In a world where mid rangers are in danger species, Durant is like the Jack Hannah of the NBA Pablo. Regularly reminding us on national television, how majestic and how important these special creatures can be these mid range shots. And also, quietly how dangerous all of them still might be to you. Yes, it's like when Jack Hannah would hand the weird lizard to Johnny Carson and that's sort of like when Russell Westbrook tries to handle the mid range shot, I think..

"Of t score two or three vasquez. What do y'all do which your team if someone's scores three times in a row on me and someone on my team says we're gonna switch. I put my head down. And i'm sad about it but i switch. It's just the way it goes. It feels better and nothing feels better than when they switch on you. 'cause i'm not a score. He does not that could have basketball. But another feels better. If you start the game with three straight buckets and there's some of the other team is like i got him switched. It makes me feel so good it just because you said my point was up. I want to let you know that. I'm out officially listed. Et six feet eleven inches okay. So you're right onto we were at this.

"That he didn't play well he played really poorly. Probably one of the worst games i've ever seen. But he had some key assists in that game most notably a nice left hand. Zip pass to kevin durant for a key layup. nice cut from durant with. I'm just. I'm still shocked. I was watching the game. Just shocked shocked shocked that they weren't involving him in the offensive actions. If you're the bucks explain to me tell me by curtain it was so clear to me as a novice. I never played the nba. 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. The most emotionally and psychologically is that james harden returned and play more minutes than yawns forty six minutes dot forty six seasons for her play minutes then jaanus so if you're watching the nfl game and elite wide receiver. The andrei hawkins are is playing against the rams and having a great game and movement of all around the field. What do you think jalen ramsey go go to the sideline until the defensive coordinator and his head coach. I'm following him. I don't care if you got me on the right side. I don't care what you're saying. I don't care what we practice. All we care what the game plan is. But i'm following him. He leads up in the backfield. I'll be he lands up.

"He's going to be out longer than a week so for me. If he's going to miss. I believe there would be maximum one game and again. This is only anticipation. But either way i believe he will return to play most of the next round. Yes it is important to know that there are certain like a contact tracing investigation can last couple of days and then free him up to play or he could have tested. Positive have symptoms in which he would be gone for a couple of weeks. If not more we do not know right now. However those are two major impactful stories for the western conference but jalen we finally get to talk about what kevin durant did. Last night in brooklyn in game five a pivotal game in the series kevin durant played every single second of the game and scored forty nine points had seventeen rebounds and ten assists a dynamic historic performance from durant. What do you have any reaction to this performance. It wasn't because pj tucker had zero points in a game because when he did well against k. d. he has zero points in previous game except his plus minus was eleven and for those intimately involved in the league. We knew that this is going to be an opportunity for the easy money sniper to respond. James harden was hobbled. Kyri irvine was out. They were going back home. And that stat. Line of forty.

"It's time for after balls. I was curious about the asteroid. That struck the chesapeake bay. That sam anderson talked to kevin durant about that. A little googling the us geological survey says that The event was called. The chesapeake bay. Belied impact is comet or asteroid. This one was three to five kilometers in diameter. it's swooped through the earth's atmosphere very exciting and blasted an enormous crater into the continental shelf. The crater was discovered or identified by c. wile e pogue of the us geological survey but neither the crater nor the asteroid have names. I say let's name the crater for c. Wiley pogue and named the asteroid for kevin durant awesome. Kevin durant asteroid josh. What's your chesapeake bay. Bow lied impact. My peak bay impact crater is about our man. Mike chefs gay. Don't want to let that drop. I did a bunch of reading as prep to rate the piece that i did last week. Joe alluded to earlier. But there was one thing i missed that. A guy named michael right flagged on twitter and that thing is both nuts on its own but also in my view extremely telling and it begins in june two thousand and three that is when a baylor basketball player named patrick denny. He went missing. A lot of folks are probably familiar with us. This is the reason that when people say well look at what the baylor basketball program came back from. This is what it came back from So in june. Two thousand and three patrick and he goes missing in july. His body was found in a gravel pit near waco texas an autopsy determined. The dentist had been shot and killed in the man who did it. It turned out was one of his teammates. Carlton dotson two years later in two thousand and five dotson pleaded guilty to the murder and he's been in prison in texas ever since but let's rewind to two thousand and three so unrelated to the murder. Then baylor coach. Dave bliss had been paying denki under the table. This was a major violation in bliss. Did not want dicky's killing to expose it and so as dana wrote in a piece on. Espn dot com. Bliss told his assistant coaches. He wanted to float the story that he was a drug dealer thereby explaining away. The money bliss had given him one of those assistant coaches that bliss was talking to was a man named abar rouse resident hired at baylor just weeks before he went missing. When rows told bless he wasn't comfortable with the plan to smear dennehy as a drug dealer as ross's a normal human being with some form of a moral compass. Bliss reportedly put a copy of rouse's contract highlighting the portion that showed he could hire and fire assistant. Coach is in front of rows. And so the implication is very clear right like do this or else in so baruch's did something that in my view quite sensible. He recorded dave less and on that recording. Bliss says reasonable doubt is. There's nobody right. Now that can say we paid pat dennehy because he's dead so what we need to do is create reasonable. Doubt rouse gave that tape to the ncaa resigned and that tape-recording ended up killing ibar roses career. Roses story is told that length in the two thousand seventeen documentary disgraced at aired on showtime the short version is the rouse. Never got a d. one coaching job again. As of two thousand seventeen he had found work consistent work teaching and he was teaching in a prison in fort worth texas. So why did they borrow skip blacklisted. Because in the world of college basketball rouse was not a hero for exposing dave bliss rather he was considered a villain for tape-recording coach in two thousand and three episode of espn's outside the lines. Three of the most famous and influential coaches in the game. All said that what a don was absolutely wrong does three jim boeheim kelvin sampson and the man of the hour. Mike shefty and here is the clip of what coach k. Said on outside the lines in two thousand three. How could you ever build a team of coaches. Forget about justice situation but if one of my sisters with tape every one of our conversations with me not knowing it. There's no way he would be on my staff even as a theoretical exercise. It's hard to think of something. That's so clearly illustrates the skewed priorities and moral bankruptcy of big time college. Coaching a normal person. I think would consider a hero or at the very minimum. What understand why he did what he did and realized that he was in the right. Then i guess the next category over it would be someone who believes that rouse had broken some kind of moral coaching code. But maybe what understand that. It's probably not wise or good to say that publicly. Like maybe keep that to yourself if you feel that way. And then there's the category that these coaches and make among them fall into which has publicly as leading figures in the sport coming out and saying that roused had broken code and essentially issuing a warning to others in the profession that they should look at what happened to us. I imagined this study isn't taught at duke. University's fuqua coach k. Center on leadership ethics. Nor do i think that there is an abar rouse center on leadership and ethics but perhaps in both cases we should address that yeah gives us some insight into how these institutions routinely cover up abuses and other terrible practices like joe. Paterno penn state michigan state. You know every other kind of disgusting scandal. We see that sort of attitude prevails within these institutions in these big programs that it's much more important to them to preserve themselves than to like. We might consider to be moral. So yeah. I took. As i think you will note and listeners. Were note like pretty great pains to try to be fair and our segment and give praise him when it's warranted and give credit where do but like this is just so unbelievable to me that it does. I think legitimately raise questions about what kind of person would would do this. And i'm not trying to say he's the coach k.'s. Evil or anything like this. But by my god stephan yeah. It seems like that was a pretty clear cut case where you had an opportunity to just say what happened was despicable in horrible and and as a coach. It saddens me. Instead of having to weigh in on the the ethics of taping. Goodbye coach k. That is our show for today..

"Announced that he will retire after the twenty twenty one. Twenty two season. That means the seventy four year old sheesh ascii the winningest coach in division one. Men's basketball history will likely stage in ireland. Deuces farewell tour in its final year on the sideline but our very own josh got. The sendoff started thursday in a piece. Headlined what was mike skis mission really in the essay josh open with open the peace with an anecdote about the time she eski summoned the sports department of the campus newspaper to berate them about an article about his team that he didn't like josh. You also closed the piece by writing that she was a vicious competitor. A self-appointed moral arbiter and a basketball coach inclined to blow the whistle on anything but the crooked pastime that he made his own. Okay so josh. You're very busy man. We all know this. What about coach k. And his announcement that day meet you set aside some time to eulogize the end of his career. So it's like if you to see a concert and they don't play take on me you gotta you gotta play the hits all you gotta give people what they want and you know. This is what the people expect from. I don't wanna disappoint the readers. I don't want to disappoint the listeners. The the thing that always has rankled me about coach k. And i think people sometimes misunderstand. It's not that. I think that he's particularly load some character compared to his peers. It's i think he's exactly like his peers and that he and his program his school and their fans make him out to be something that he isn't and what he is is the most important figure in modern college basketball. The best coach and most successful coach in modern college basketball and a person in this is the point. I made in the piece that has never done anything to change what college basketball is and what it will be and so i think his legacy stephan is one of continuity and maintenance and he is somebody who i think as far as the ncaa is. Concerned was a godsend in creating this image however accurate or inaccurate or was of college basketball as this more all endeavor as a place for education and learning and where the kind of transcended like montana mir sport. And i think that that's true. I think that that's a damaging image that he helped to create an. It's one that's i think. In recent years people are becoming wiser to but to the extent that that fiction was maintained for as long as it has been. I think he was a major reason for that. And the fiction was maintained at a time when other coaches were getting taken down when college basketball as an entity was viewed with increasing skepticism. Not as if it wasn't in the nineteen seventies and nineteen eighties before chef ski rose to power. But what's your chef. Skied has done. I think josh and joel is that he exploited the willingness of the public to believe that it was possible to run a major college sports program in a way that defied the popular notion of what college sports had become and suggests ski. Did that in two ways one was for many years recruiting players whom he encouraged to stay for his own benefit of course because the older and more mature and better. They got the more likely that duke was to win a championship. But also as a matter of public relations what szumowski did was give duke the motor to raise millions upon millions of dollars for that institution and cement. It's ability to be power in this sport. Yeah i think it's important to remember that. He is a former player. And minty of bobby knight. Who was the all time winningest. Men's coach in division one history before mike shuster muskie and that is exactly the binary by which bob night live by. It's important to remember that. Bobby knight is posed as sort of alternative to guys like jerry tarr canaan eddie sutton who finally just now got inducted into the college basketball hall of fame so being being a sanctimony grandfatherly figure is part and parcel of being legendary college coach. If you come out of that era and to thrive in that ecosystem you pretty much to pose a someone of moral rectitude but also for somebody for whom basketball means more than a game. Keep in mind. That john. Wooden first of all before i move on from. Wouldn't i mean. In retrospect we know the john wooden wasn't clean. He wasn't a perfect he. Wasn't this perfectly clean figure. I mean if anybody just google sam gilbert and ucla if you want to know about how ucla got it done in the fifties and sixties right or think about joe paterno bobby bowden all these guys who sort of built up this image of more rectitude and sort of cut off his falling away as they retired after they retired. So i mean to coach k.'s. Credit he made it through all that with very few. Very few controversies that stick to him in his legacy at the end of the day like he's going to retire with because he basically got through this time without having you know one of those big blow ups like his mentor bobby knight or he didn't get busted for running a dirty program even though the allegations that he did and so he got out of kind of the right time. To the extent like admiration form he'd navigated a really dirty business profited off of it and got out before the cycle ran. Its course yeah. I think that's right. And i think i always want to kind of take pains to give credit where it's due and not exaggerate. What i think his failings are and where i think the credit is due is like i think there is some sincere belief that underlies what he's done in his approach like he's a guy who came out of chicago and got an opportunity to go to west point and credits for and his experience.

"Platform after sunday night's instant classic between the men's national soccer teams of the united states and mexico. Our friends spencer hall tweeted a guy jumped off the broadcast and presumably straight into hell and it wasn't the tenth wildest thing i counted at least fourteen things that were arguably wilder not including first time commentator and longtime us hero. Clint dempsey's camouflage sports coat in the end. The usa came from behind twice to win three two on a christian pulisic penalty kick in like the four hundred and thirty third minute of play and collected the very first concacaf nations league championship trophy. Joel you never forget. Your first concacaf nations league championship the relatively low stakes however should not obscure either the utter insanity of this match or what it indicated about the future and even present of the men's team which sir rather significant i think you watched. Did you order a weston mckennie jersey right after the game because you should have you know he was born in little elm texas out a you know a. I'm just now learning this weston mckennie person but you said low stakes. The way people reacted yesterday. I thought that this was actually meaningful in some sort of way that admitted you qualified for the world cup or i don't get confused because there's so many concha caf competitions in the. Us team is on tv every few months. And everybody gathers around the tv to root for them and everybody gets really excited dramatic about the result. And then you find out. Oh wait actually doesn't have anything to do with welcome to soccer. Fandom joel matters because there are so few games right so this was an actual competition though and there is this distinction that between like a friendly match or match where you know where the managers trying out new players and something that actually has a title so you know i said relatively low stakes because no it's not qualifying the world cup. This was a bullshit manufactured tournament that is designed to generate some tv revenue in the absence. Sort of instead of a friendly match that has no prize attached. But josh there were real stakes here and that was like are all of these young terrific european-based players who are being thrown on the field together for basically the first time in any meaningful competition and in the run-up to the qualification for next year's actual world cup. How would they do. How did they do. Are you getting ping pong back and forth between calling in meaningful and meaningless about six to eight times getting meaningless. The the game itself and the what it portends are meaningful. It is possible to hold those two contradictory thoughts at once. Yes we're a complicated people with complicated thoughts so it was the first quote unquote competitive match for the us. Men's national team over five hundred days and it was meaningful for the fan base. Because there's been this sense of anticipation of will this be the generation fan to both kind of redeem it. The failures of the team that lost trying to add in two thousand seventeen and didn't make the world cup but also in a larger sense to bring the united states. Men's team to international glory and mexico is the measuring stick and has always been and probably will always be the measuring stick for the usa. Men's national team and it's gone back and forth of who's been the most dominant in the region. But i think there is always this anxiety about how we stack up against the mexican national team especially team. That's been really strong in recent years. And so that's why there is so much anticipation around this game. And that's why this victory i think is meaningful and not just to fans but you get the sense joel from watching the game and the reacting to it that it was really meaningful to these players to like. These guys had never played together in a game like this. And the fact that the goal scores were christian pulisic weston mckennie gio raina who are sort of like the leading figures of this new generation that also felt meaningful. We have to take your word for it right. it's meaningful familiarizing. Myself with the fee for international rankings. And because i was like okay excited about beating mexico even though this is a meaningful or meaningless match. We don't quite know the stakes. But i was like okay. Well let's see how good mexico actually is in. Mexico was ranked eleventh in the most recent fifa rankings. Us was number twenty. And i'm like okay. I guess that sounds pretty good. Like if the us is ranked somewhere between ten and twenty. Does that mean that they're returning to glory. Or you know what i mean like. I don't i just don't understand. I think the rank the fifa rankings are always kind of fraught but in particular since they haven't played a competitive match in more than five hundred days. I think the number of data points that we have to rely on about how good the uss but how good like really any team is right now. So i think this was kind of measuring stick for them. Obviously like you said. I mean the players were obviously hyped about it although i i can't imagine like as an athlete if you play and so international competition with some attached steaks and you win and that dramatic of a fashion that it wouldn't resonate to you not make you excited like i can totally get that but guess the thing is for me. Is that american soccer. fame's are always like living and dying by the results of the next game and it means something fans of any other team actually not because like basketball baseball. Maybe less football but like each week doesn't necessarily mean that you're gonna it makes it reflects onto the legacy of the upcoming team with it. The trajectory of team. Sometimes the game is just a game but in soccer. I'm finding out in particularly with the us men's national team that we don't feel that way that every game is a referendum on the status of the national team status in the world. And i mean. I guess it's sort of confusing to me to keep up with the last time. We did a segment on the us national team. They in one game and lost the game in the same weekend because there were two different thing than like people were frustrated with the us national team and all of a sudden. They weren't so like i guess. It just seems sort of exhausting to figure out which of these competitions actually matter in. Which should i take a lesson from because it just seems like every time it's different that's the beauty of international soccer. Joel i mean it really. Is you got to ride the wave of of emotion. A sort of a sign over value to every game. And that's kind of what it's about because look if you're the coach of the men's national team gregg berhalter of the us in this case who was not a beloved choice. He's like the brother of the one of the chief executives of us soccer at the time when he was hired. He's an american when there was a lot of clamor for the united states to go hire a prominent international coach who could nurture stars who were playing on top clubs in europe. The biggest collection of americans playing in top leagues overseas ever. So you don't play that many games. His job is largely recruiting and planning so every game does have this added meaning and then the mexico rivalry which i think you have to be. Blind not to see is incredibly intense. Both in the stands and on the field players don't like each other even if they don't know each other that well i mean. I mentioned that. I mentioned spencer halls tweet at the top but the game was insane. I mean mexico's scores a minute into the game..

"That's that's not a good sign, but there's also the other side, too. which is if Kevin Durant is. Has. An issue with Kenny Atkinson because he's not starting De'andre Jordan because de'andre. Jordan's guy. Then you're like really that's. It the the coaches you would hope is going to do things which he believes are in the best interest of the team, and the the other thought is I look? There's a chance that he's starting a younger player because he believes that by next year. When they are competitive, you need the younger players to be further along than De'andre. Jordan who is at the end of a career, not at the start of a career. What's going on in their locker room, but I would say from the outside looking in when it gets to this point, and there's this much tension. There's probably not a lot of great communication going on right anytime. These situations come to a head when you step everyone steps away, and the stories start coming out usually comes down to. There wasn't really strong communication between the coach and the players of the front office, and one of those Trifecta. Something was broken because that was the case. Then that conversation should have happened with Kevin. Durant, and if Kevin Durant really felt that strongly about it, then he would tell Atkinson like I don't agree with that and moving into next year. What's the plan if he doesn't developer just? Conversations generally solve most of these pop, no question when you stop talking usually relationship stop. I think that's what that's. What happened or didn't happen tonight.

"Speaking so Kevin Durant says you know what it wasn't about going to the team that was our rival because we only played one time in the playoffs it just so happened it was the Western Conference finals right before he was a free agent he says I was tired of being the only guy who could hit threes oops you know the whole Russell Westbrook responses coming right this is gotten back to Russell Westbrook it will elicit a response at some point there's no way that Wes Russ west brook does not respond to this that's the direction now there are other guys on the team the for sure we're not jump shooters and could hit threes what what the wealth Russell Wilson sorry Russell Westbrook is the guy who along with Kevin Durant was doing a lot of the scoring he was the guy that was now what became a guy who would average a triple double the year after but certainly to hear Kevin Durant say he left because he felt like he was the only viable shooter well that's not going to sit well with his former teammate who obviously is now on to Houston after hours here on CBS sports radio one last thing the attitude of Kevin Durant about social media about people trying to get all up in his grill in telling what to do yeah that was pretty evident on this podcast when you get to this level you that good at something for everybody for like that that they can tell you was best for you you know I mean as like fever from the team I want to go to to what I said Twitter is by everybody got it there but I feel like they know is best or am I appreciate so you know but I got through the yeah that's generally his attitude I haven't looked at his Twitter in awhile but the last time I looked his avatar hit I'm sorry he's bio was I'm me I do me and I chill and do you remember he's had burger account in the past I don't know if he still has that were he claps back at people who what a Dick criticize him but he could do it anonymously so he thought and he'll take members of the media to task for what he feels like are unfair criticisms or what he feels like our pot shots at him and his beef with Brandon Tierney was about something that Brandon said here on CBS sports radio and and maybe obviously tweet as well but he was talking about how he wanted guys who wanted to play on the biggest stage in that the New York connects would have been a much bigger stage than Brooklyn that the next in Madison Square Garden would have put him in the spotlight whereas playing in Brooklyn is like choosing the ugly red headed stepchild so to speak it it's like operating with little brother in relative anonymity now I don't know that I agree with all of that and Brandon is a New York guy so he he's more in touch with the poles of New York I'm not even sure that's a fair criticism because I feel like forever Kevin Durant goes the spotlight is sure to follow and maybe just maybe if the nets build a winner there around Katie and Kyra Irving well the nets then overshadow the next but that was Brandon's opinion and Kevin Durant took him to task on Twitter it turned into this big it's Katie gets tired of people telling you what you should do we worry should go in and saying things about him that are true in his opinion it's funny because I tweeted the this is such a small by comparison but I tweeted the whole deal about how I was eating chips this weekend and some guy right back and says make the piece of fruit girl first of all I ate lots of route this weekend actually the fruit smoothie bananas blueberries whatever's that's beside the point but it does get annoying when people feel like they can tell you what to do people who don't know you don't know you personally don't know anything about you except for what they see on social media what they hear on my radio show or the case of Kevin Durant they only see him in a basketball setting and yet they feel like they can be up in your business and tell you what to do course I didn't respond because there's a different standard of accountability for people who are public figures on social media for the then for those who are anonymous and have no accountability so I've learned to let that stuff go but I will agree it gets really annoying when people tell you how to live your life just because they have a platform and social media where they feel like they care so that part I agree with I can't even imagine being famous and being Kevin Durant shoes I don't think I would read it I think it at at some point I would cut it off and and I might use it but there's no way that I'd be constantly reading what people responding to me I I would just cut off mentions in her look at them all right you can buy me on Twitter a all radio we got our pull up how did you like the inaugural weekend of the XFL also on Facebook page a lot of your weighing in it was five finally the completion of the Mookie Betts trade for the red Sox made out a little bit better I was wondering if they might pull back all together that did not happen so murky is headed to the Dodgers the after hours CBS sports radio here's our latest sports updates and here's Marco Belletti sports way all right Amy will the Dodgers.

"Free campaign, the LA listen to this. The warriors just announced Kevin Durant, calf strain is unlikely to return for the start of the finals, but they're hopeful he returned at some point during the finals, he has not been cleared yet for on court activities. So I just got I'm going to throw this out there. This is my theory on this. This is I'm just gonna throw this out. That what is because they're win. They winning all these games without. K D, what's the value of coming back? Until the Golden State Warriors trail. There's no value if you come back game one and you lose that's not great. If I'm Kevin Durant. I just watched the finals. And then if Golden State is down to one, I come in, and I say the day, but if you don't think branding matters, I'm dead serious. This sounds crazy now. I don't think it sounds crazy. I think he's really hurt. I don't I don't think he is. I don't think he's going back to the finals at all. That's a long. That's a tough injury to recover from you have to rest forever. Man, ten more days, and he's not going to be ready for the start. All right. Okay. Coming up next. Drake's on the sidelines. He's just one of those famous people that we automatically connect to one team. We'll give you a list pretty interesting. That's coming up next. Be sure to catch live.

"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..

"I don't even know where he stands when either step or Kevin Durant can go off at any given time ROY any last thing I'll say when he walked into the arena, he had like the deaths there. It was like it was. It was just this point. Like, he like you saw what was going to happen before I've seen that look before it was there. Well, there is this talk about him in Pat. Beverley Pat Beverley defense and whether Pat Beverley can stop him. The warriors went so far as to make like a mixed tape of Pat Beverley, grabbing and pushing and hounding annoying Nick sent it to the NBA league offices. Ryan is this normal routines? Normally do this to sort of like snitch on opponents. We do this all the time. It happens all the time. And obviously Patrick Beverley got in trouble last night. So anytime that you see the hands hooked around the ways that ends up being called a foul, you anytime you see sue hands. And obviously pictured actually wasn't grabbing him in a lot of those situations. Just the hand was there and is actively really bothering Kevin Durant. So all the time that message gets sent out and what Kevin Durant is saying what he's feeling what he's voicing. That's nuts. Thing different than what every single NBA player does. Kevin Durant is not this outlier. Kevin Durant is not sensitive. What he's doing is telling a lot of you the truth and my frustration too. Is that a lot of people? They can't wait until something negative happens. Kevin around and in this. There's this outpour tax and goes after him and this dude is nothing but workers tail off and work hard and give you good basketball. And you know who would want to wanna championship to Jacoby gum. Oh, man. Well, he certainly got championship or two maybe even three on the way, but they will have to do. So without the help of DeMarcus cousins Ryan how much is the cuts is injury going to impact this team as they move forward in the playoffs. This is this is huge. Because if we have to look at one glaring weakness in the Golden State Warriors, it's inside they were one of the worst teams in the entire NBA before boogie cousins came back in rebounding and defense as the inundate they can switch. Versatile. They do any and everything that you can imagine from team on the floor. But they what they were lacking enrolling relying on with boogie was rim protection. And in the game one who's actually negative seventeen. So the numbers actually don't help who would boogie does is. He's an enforcer. They will not be pumped in the pain. You'll never have to worry about that. With boogie cousins on your team, even if it's booking playing in five or ten minutes spurts, he'd ready attitude and toughness, and if they read into another big man or team that just pounds the glass house paint that could be a problem on that said and done you. It has been he was excellent yesterday. And I thought that the warriors really looked like the warriors outside of Kevin Durant being Kevin Durant, obviously. Because the ball moves there. The defense took it to another level, and they were so good on both ends of the floor because of Andrew bogut that essentially they could've won if they just play defense. They gonna win yesterday. They just played offense. But Andrew bogut just gives that like, you know, booking. So good offense. You gotta give them basketball, Andrew bogut. Don't want the ball. We're gonna run bass. He's. He's a great passer, Andrew bogut. Does a lot of things we saw Andrew bogut and this warriors team worked together in the past. And it seems like they will have to moving forward..

"Be then leave anti-us NewsRadio one thousand T O K eight four zero one thousand Emily on social media rights Lee. We're talking about Joe Biden yesterday. What you may not realize Joe Biden is now living in the world of accusation. He helped to create it's one of peril for the accused in which they are subject to expansive definitions of sexual misconduct and little benefits of the doubts. Emily, I think you're right. But I don't know that he personally is caught in this world. I think Democrats as a whole are caught in that world. And it's a world they created. I think Joe Biden has just been dragged down by proxy. I don't think he wants to be. And I don't think he set out to to be dragged down into it. When he did all these things, I really do think Joe Biden is one of these. He's the dirty old uncle had that would hug your daughter. A little too tightly. Would flirt with your girlfriend thanksgiving dinner, always wear too much Cologne. So when he either shook your hand or gave you a kiss on the cheek you'd smell the Cologne the rest of the day, and that's from that nineteen seventies eighties era. I get that. But here's the problem with Joe Biden, and being the democrat nominee, the Democrats are running from that image as fast as they can they do not want an old smelly white guy is their candidate. At least a good bit of the Democrats. Don't some others do because they don't want the Bernie Sanders of the world becoming there. And then that's another thing that the Democrats are deathly afraid of they want somebody who can beat Trump. But they're not sure who it is. Because what Trump is doing is working do you? Remember the old? Ronald Reagan joke. He was in a debate with Jimmy Carter and Jimmy Carter kept bringing up up this. What what he's done what he had done well here in what he had done well there and and Ronald Reagan just kept shooting it down. No. President carter. I I don't know what you're talking about this statistics you side, or the than this is what is actually happening at one point. He said there you go again, Mr., you know, there you go again. And and he said you remind you reminded me of a witch doctor who gets mad when the real doctor comes along and has a remedy that works. The whole house blew up and exploded in in in applause, and it was true. It was true. But, but that's I think the state that the Democrats are in right now, they keep they keep tacking to the left and further to the left because they think that is what's going to get the younger vote and to a certain extent there. Right. But what they don't understand is a lot of the young voted for Trump. Not because he promised to give them free stuff. Not because he promised that they didn't have to pay for their school. Not that he promised you would make life easier for them. They voted for Trump because they saw what Trump has become and they want that. He's a rich powerful guy. I want to be that. And what I think Democrats don't understand is a good deal of younger voters. That's what they want. They want the same things we want. And they're disenfranchised because they are getting out of school with massive debt. They are following the rules as their parents laid down for them. And it's not it's not panning out for them. Now, we can do a whole show on that. Probably you could probably tell me better about what the kids are thinking that because you have kids or grandkids. But this is what I witnessed. And this is the this is what I've seen in some of the studies that I've read about the younger generation eight four zero one thousand Leigh Matthews a Katie. Okay dot com, Jacqueline rights Li I just noticed. Kevin Durant has jumped ship yet. Again, this time going to the Knicks and Jack will and I did not notice that. But thanks for bringing it up, and it is relevant. I understand. But Kevin Durant. Kevin durant? Whole thing for me is that I don't know that he ever wanted anything other than a national ring. And that's why he left the thunder in the first place because yeah, he would be the he's the big fish in a little pond here in Oklahoma. But he wants to be the big fish in the big pond. And I think before he gets hurt to the point where he can't play any longer. He wants. They want to ring he wants a championship. And I think he's just going to go wherever that championship wherever he feels that championship will lead him. I also understand that he's a momma's boy and really wants to get back to the east coast where is closer to mama, which I can understand that to NewsRadio one thousand K T O. Okay. Leave Anthea send in the studio with the news. It's Calvin right Calvin this fire stories, really sad. Yeah. Three people dead after the mobile home fire in elk city. I'm Calvin right?

"Now you and I had a little disagreement about this earlier. I just feel like when what does have to get in the conversation here for Kobe. Bryant had won six not five. Would he be better than LeBron? No, LeBron is the best player of his generation. Durant will never be LeBron ever done matter if he wins three more titles. He's never going to end. He was any time out Bill Russell's got eleven do we think he's better than MJ kennel be titles? No. But I mean at some point you're playing along like the Braun is going against him. You beat him institute wine. But it's not like, it's it's Tom Brady got sick. And Brett farve got one if LeBron got three and Kevin Durant now has to write let's say two more and he's got four to LeBron James wins one this year. Which assuming he will have the same three. Okay. But I and I would agree. Lebron is still so the best. Now, let's say he goes to New York and wins two more. Oh, God slow down. That is crazy talk. You got a winning duped finals, the Nick. Who? And then Jimmy Butler with kyri goes to Phoenix. Anyway, any at title. I'm I'm just saying is there anything that Durant can do. No, nothing nothing. Even if he just went on some crazy streak and beat all records Rana. Nope. Lebron's better all stats influence impact more skills. Not as just more dominant to Durant better pure score. All right. But that's something. That's by the way. I have Durant. Second. It's not like I've got him as an old Oldsmobile. I've got him number two are gone. That's what he wants. He feels like if you're not I as he's still a Maserati, he's just no amber Gainey laws rotties Ervin's. I'm just Durant's got to get over this whole thing. You're not listening when all was in his prime it. Joe? Frazier was close you never going to be Ali. Peyton Manning was pretty close. Never going to be Tom. That's fine. All of that live, pork radio. Guys. Never going to be me. Phone such a jerk joy with the.
