"kevin durant kyrie irving" Discussed on The Crossover NBA Show with Chris Mannix

"He rebounded a good rate about 8 per game, handed out about 6 assists per game in that series. He was great. And so for Boston, you've got to kind of deploy that same defense that was really good against Durant and it gets Giannis. Albeit butler plays a different position than both those guys, but you've got to deploy that same defense to have success against Miami. Yes, though I would just note and look, this has been the case all season. The heat of all the potential contenders that we talked about over the course of the season, the heat had by far the least potent offense. Regular season, they were tied with the sixers at 11th, 12th in offensive rating. So, you know, what the Celtics had to do against the nets with two incredibly talented and versatile scores in Durant and Kyrie. What they had to do against the bucks granted no Chris Middleton, but Yanis is the biggest wrecking ball offensively in the league potentially right now. So the heat don't have that. The heat hang their hat on defense first. And then Jimmy Butler turns it up to another notch. Jimmy Butler who will put up kind of, you know, good but modest stats modest compared to the Giannis and Durant's and LeBron's of the world. Jimmy Butler will turn it on the playoffs and he has. So it's not that he can't do it. But the heat don't have anyone offensive player who scares you the way that Giannis or Kevin Durant Kyrie Irving did. So the Celtics have been phenomenal defensively. I don't think they even necessarily need to be as good in the Conference Finals as they were the first two rounds. The heat are a different kind of team. The real question is I think to me more, what is Miami going to do to slow down Tatum and Brown and if they do, if they really disrupt their best offensive creators, where do the Celtics go? Is it grant Williams hitting another 7 threes? Is it Marcus smart coming through? Is it the Celtics simply fighting fire with fire and just holding the heat down that much further? And they're going to win 91 to 87 or something. And set the clock back a couple of decades. I don't know. The Celtics have more offensive firepower. That part is clear. I think a big key for Boston is matching the physicality of Miami. Jaylen Brown said something after game 7 where he said and I'm paraphrasing here that he felt like the bucks prepared them for what's coming against Miami. When I talked to people in Boston before the playoffs, the one thing they were wary of with the heat was that Miami was always really physical with them during the regular season and that physicality had an effect. It was good in those matchups. You're probably not gonna get any more physical than what Celtics bucks series was. I mean, that was a wrestling match for most of these games. Body's hitting the floor, left and right. So at the very least, boss is going to be prepared for the physicality of Miami going into that. And if they can match that, they're going to be at a good position to win. There's never been a better time to find out why bet MGM is the king of sports books, download.

"Three point shooter. Lamarcus aldridge started shooting threes toward the end of his tenure with the spurs. I think there's a world where you can finagle minutes. Were of them. Play together but than that. I think something like durant james johnson and one of those guys that could shoot. Threes is sort of workable trio. That's kind of interesting size. Defense and toughness again. It's not. We're going to crunch time with because you're going to play the three stars a crunch time that only these two spots but i actually think you can finagle it one way or another and it is handy because much as i think you should never do. It's easy to be eyed acting. It'd be like you should never run posts up. Would he have. Kevin durant kyrie irving and james harden on the floor. But sometimes there's five seconds on the shot clock and kevin durant trapped in your only option is to throw the ball to lamarcus aldridge with guard on him and it helps them. Lamarcus aldridge knows what the hell to do when he gets the ball on the blood but the garden actually not the but even that like we know that we're i think so. Often we think about understandably so the last two minutes. The game are closing out games. What it looks like the playoffs. The postseason which are all very real things especially for a team that you're talking about having title contending hopes But what about game. Thirty five and gained fifty seven and You know a team that switched a lot. Oh you're gonna utilize some of those mismatches and try and punish teams for different areas. Things or someone's taken a night off for you know that. I just think there's a lot of scenario throughout the course of the season where you've got a bunch of players that have specific skill sets. That may be unique to how use them. That are good locker room guys. Add to the veteran experience and in the the totality of what you're trying to do and i don't think i guess this circles back to your original question is are you missing anything on some of those wing positions. I miss anything. Said in your back. Where i i. Don't think also look at who you're going to be playing in your back or who's in the wing spots what you have in terms of james kyrie kevin joe harris bruce brown. We brought up the name of john card. There is adding meals of course I think that these pieces Help fill the gaps for areas that at times last year for the nets. They may have been lacking a little bit well. Joel harris was four of twenty one on three using the two thousand nine hundred nine playoffs. He shot forty percent last year's playoffs but he was eight of thirty three from games. Three to seven of the buck series. Joey buckets has got make some buckets when it counts this coming year. I will but i. I honestly think we've gone like the only question that really matters is. How good can this team be on defense. When it matters like was last year's playoff defense a mirage based on opponent based on frankly their biggest offensive liabilities toddling between injuries in james harden and kyrie irving or or was it real. They did show some ability to switch. And then against milwaukee they stop switching and played a decent dropback scheme that held up for most of that series not towards the end. But most of it. And and truthfully. I don't know the answer to that question because that was such a small sample of competent defense with kyri and james harden admission games. They were bad rebounding team in the regular season and the bucks killed them on the glass in the last two games of that series they profile a bad rebounding team. Now can they be put. I guess i come away pretty optimistic that they can be a pretty an average defense when it matters if their average on defense they're going to be good enough to win the title. But where do you fall on their defense and like what's the biggest area that you're going to be looking for when you put your analyst hat on game one is happening in your focusing on their defense. What are you looking for. I think game one is very different than thinking about there. Obviously it's a different roster but thinking about postseason defense and you said this early on in the podcast but it was very evident as you see with most teams and a lot of great players. There's another gear. They got two of the defensive end and a large part comes down to efforts. And i think the other factor with this group with the key components is just being smart players in when you are smart incommunicative especially when you're running a skit switching scheme as they did or whether you're changing thanks. So much of it comes down to those factors in your effort level your communication level and your ability to be able to think of the fly with what you're doing so i think that's where it took a jump i do think wing defense is something that's going to be interesting to watch. I'm really curious to see as you met with that. Switching scheme with what they were implementing Obviously a lot of that coming. You know mike dantonio But a lot of that coming with what. They didn't use them at some similarities. From that ad juris to see just type of scheme they rotten. Do they have consistency from what we saw last year. Or does that change And so for those reasons and just ability to have a preseason. I mean the lack of again every team across the board said this i. I'm sure it's accurate experienced this. When you talk to coaches every coach there was no practice time last year. So on top of having into funky off season. The lack of really a preseason. There was no practice so a lot of the things that you're looking to implement just didn't really happen so you know for me. I'm excited china campus. Okay what are you doing. What are you trying to do. How do these different pieces of added whether it's patty mills whether it's james johnson. How much playing time. John carter you put in the mix of some of these players that are more defensive minded than those who have left from the nets. Pat does that factor in those are all questions that i have just in what they do and how they try to implement that. We'll say it was interesting that the nets did not switch very much against milwaukee when harden was injured and then when harden came back did began to switch even more now they started the season without heart and switching.

Everybody's yeah he's going to be out and that means he's going to be the next guy that the lakers will go get what do you say i think he is I think they're the most likely team to get him But there's just. I never say never with bio guys even because this is kind of been the rumor for three or four weeks at this point That this happened in brooklyn and it was just a matter of were they going to do the bio for him was he going to have to be traded. I if it say brooklyn a whole lot of money the fact that they they just save millions of dollars on their luxury tax bill by doing it this way. Also nicer de'andre like deandra got that because he was part of the kevin durant kyrie irving initial big three in in brooklyn and he was just. He's friends with all those guys. They played on team usa together and he was essential for them in signing with the nets. A little while back and it was a him signing that he gets paid twenty million a year that is not his market value. They overpaid for him. In the beginning as part of a like a sign let sign kevin durant and kyrie irving and it was you know finally worked out that way but at some point you make so much money and your they have a lot of guys at that position but they you know straight into detroit. They they They're going to do a buy out. He's going to give back a little bit of money. Detroit gets four second round out of it so they get something And also some other some other complicated salary cap things but we all thought lamarcus aldridge was going to miami. Last year on the market he ended up going to brooklyn so until he clears. Waivers and intel other teams have a chance to approach the andre. I wouldn't i wouldn't say it's likely or expected or anything like that. I would use much more. Vague words. you know. He fits with the lakers. He would fit in that role. I think would have a pretty well defined role and if you're on the buyout market and you're gonna sign for minimum like that's what you're looking for is someplace you can play.

"New york knicks in tibbs. You trust though right. Wasn't the mantra last year. Was i feel like it was i. Yeah it was a great year at ended poorly and i just thought that there would be some sort of shakeup. Some sort of different. I guess it's still possible. But i just it just in feet. It's never happened. it's never happen. I mean the closest thing that we had that was the carmelo triton now was it and that we understand how that turned out but all of these guys that you felt like were available at some point. I mean even in the draft when you had the worst record in basketball and zion williamson was the one overall pick. That didn't work out for you. Lebron james back in two thousand and ten in all those recordings that we use the play. Come on lebron all that stuff. That didn't work out. It did not coli leonard. No kevin durant kyrie irving no steph. Curry was taken one. Pick ahead. yeah that i mean. It's just the over. So now i'm going to believe the damian lillard is going to go from portland to the new york knicks because he wants to be a part of the garden. Gee it's hard to believe if you don't have hope you have nothing. I know but that's kind of the way i felt with. All this stuff is no hope. Well who is the prize. Get though before all of this started mostly if you look. You're talking about this year right here. And now if i said to you three days ago who is the prize get when all is said and done in two weeks i would thought if they would have brought if they would have significantly upgraded the point guard position. Then i would have been much happier like if they would have made the sign trade for lonzo ball. I would have been happier okay. They would abroad in. Kyle lowry i would have been happier okay. Then what's going on now but you didn't answer my question. The prize get is still damian. Lillard exactly and who is still out there. Allegedly it's not restricted radio back and find those postings. I mean they weren't too cryptic. It was pretty much like get me the hell out of here or maybe portland is just gonna put different players around you know trade. Cj mccollum get some different. Maybe that's the deal. Maybe was i'm saying. Is i think three or four days ago. The best possible player that the knicks could've gotten is still where he is. An is still gettable. Okay that's all. I'm gonna tell you so i really hope so. I'm not totally ruling. It out the live. Gee i i'm not totally ruling it out. It's just. how many times do you have to get burned. I get it. And i'm not saying he's coming here but it's still possible. It'll be a press conference in tokyo at seven thirty. Our.

Time and opportunity to acquire litter. Paul george and i wouldn't have a draft pick for the next four years three or four years as you know what maybe not the chance. I'm willing to take.

That's been can't do that then. Need someone to run and push the pace with him joel embiid. He's not gonna do that so with all due respect. These guys are killer talent. But i just don't think their skills complement each other. I think it's one thing to say. Well you have to stars on the same team great. But how do you start. I don't feel like ben. Simmons joel beat to together. Well we know which one you trade. Yeah yeah see antonio opposite in the here wondering is that so you've had everybody's screaming trae. Ben simmons stratum trade him.

But i never did it in my entire upbringing but let me tell you why didn't like this because when i see this i here this this last well would have certain population hedren it lasts. It's like yeah but the brothers ain't looking out for the white players. Many filling me they trip. And i say my coaches always say when you call somebody out names and numbers. 'cause rich paul. You have lebron james. What why players are you talking about. It turns like first of all the cream rises to the top. You got lebron you and you get the players of all the players top fifty that make money in salary. Who are you talking about. Kevin love porzingis. Your yokich gordon hayward or galadari the other forty five or black front about what ages starts at the bottom work their way up second of all. You're starting at the top work your way down. There's only five players even potential names and numbers. He he'd be talking about. Have you had those guys on a record. And actually why didn't go with you so my next lap. Let's talk about the house and wise but right now just as a surface statement it just it makes sense. Yeah i agree with you on the fact that you can't speak in absolutes but now as a matter of the wise we know what the what is he says. The white players don't want black agents. I disagree with the term one. Because you don't know what they want and maybe a lack of exposed to from my own experience when you want when you select an agent you look at their track record yes right you look at the long gatien of the track record. How long have they been dominant. I know that this is not just a basketball sentiment from black agents. Because we've seen the same sentiment from a black agents in football as well. David willy get a friend of the show. He came out and he said that. Not tweet up there. I along with every other black. Nfo agent only representing black players unlike our white counterparts. We don't have the luxury of representing the entire. Nfl pool of athletes. If it wasn't for black players we wouldn't have the opportunities to be agents several other people co-signed following debt. So i'm like wait a second. This is actually going on amongst other black agents. So what does the why. When i came out it was picking an agent my junior year. David who is right now. The most dominant black agent and football he was i think still in law school. Only jamaal charles and earl. Thomas david graduated from texas. Undergrad graduated from nebraska law school. He only had charles. No thomas so when i'm looking at a track record you haven't done anything yet as far as you got jamal. You've got earl. But they haven't gotten huge deals with. David went on to negotiate david now forbes top agent in the in the game so i'm looking at a track record sale and realistically the first white agent and football in one thousand nine hundred eighty five i white agent first black agents and football nineteen sixty nine a forty four year gap as far as agency so the track record that black agents even are allowed to have just based on the existence of black people. Being agents is a much shorter runway. Shout out to david moolah. Gotta shout out to nicole lyn. But i think the why is When the gatekeepers of agencies because it's not the nineteen and twenty year old kid by the way for the most part. It's your coach. Your mentor your parent along with your input but the gatekeepers of who is going to audition you to be the agent. I think they're looking like well when we look at least steinberg. Who had troy. That's have tony. Romo who had. Smith had marcellus wildly. That track record is much longer just based off what has been allowable in this country then the track record of black agents so for me. I examined the why and that is the why i stumbled upon Interesting all right. Let's go to the y. Stumbled upon because before we get into fully all of this Man canadian help explain bill. Duffy aba asian brother multiple white clients. Oh della vedova. Luca danni it C. four at least on his kim nikki point being. That's what you're talking about salutes. And no bill duffy as. Let me use rich paul's way of talking. I don't feel definitely wouldn't say this. If i asked but he liked dog. It ain't that hard to get a white player but you know what's interesting. What's your focus is your focus being an agent representing your client is your focus contracts or is your focus also curing societal ills. Because we also talked about david geller and many of these other ages. They feel that there's a burden for them to do more to just represent their clients in in in negotiations. That comes smoke like rich paul right now. This is not a contract negotiation conversation. This is about him talking about societal issues which so players black and white are sitting. There said dr. I'm just her agent. And that doesn't mean that why ages don't wanna cure. They're all society's ills but they're going to be outspoken and apps lucidly. I haven't seen it on record as we just heard right now from rich paul interesting. So this is my experience Black agents recruited me and white ages. Recruited me. I went with the ivy league former kind of smaller shop. Brad blink who actually had a lot of big clients include her more time. Who was a superstar but for me. I just went familiar like he went to colombia. He went to everybody. He was the first one that came when i was a no name so he. Here's the thing you notice as a black player and when we get recruited and this is my only issue. And i hate to generalize. But i have to wanna black agent comes at you. They play that black hard. Open the door like we stay with me. Work women you know brothers we stick together but then they get in the door and then all of sudden you wanna play the world equality car to try and get the white players. You think the white players this thing you walk in the door trying to wink wink and try to say brother. Let's go in here together and nest wa. Think if you really want to break down the concept so why it's difficult to cross over is because you're not being sincere and genuine and every player sees it. We are naturally recruited from junior high high school. College we know the game so situations like this. I just hate the absolute. I'm here this an incredulous statement that he just made right there. It's nothing just can't believe and buy into the only reason i won't go. That far is because. I think the truth is found in what you said you went with. What was the name of the original agent. You went with bill duffy. You want with no no no you. You sign with grab brad blanks and over the course of what you were talking about. You said i went with familiarity. Close quote i think. That's what happens a lotta times. I think black players go with familiarity black agents. I think white players go with familiarity white agents. And i think white players don't end up having black agents because they do what we all do in life. They went with familiarity. Now the real question is how can we start to break that trend of just going with familiarity and going with the best. That's not something you can solve. Justin sports some. We got to say to. It's too few white players. Nba in the first place. If you were make money off hell you talking about rich. Paul like just being real about this utah about fishing where there ain't fish. It is seventy percent black. Then if you want to include a euro players we're into the ninety percentile before we've got to white american players so come on man this lands will but it is. It has no true bullseye. 'cause there's so few and those few who make the money to rich pause command top dog. Lebron james agent come obama. Keep it one hundred coming up. Carbon is catching heat from former celtics for stopping on boston's logo will tell you if it's too much he next don't speak for you. Kerry irving made headlines recently when a fan appeared water bottle adam but before the four that he walked amid court after the game and stomped on the celtics logo this fired up former celtics hooting glen. Big baby davis. I guess with nickname who appeared to renton kyri posting quote. Keep that bleep basketball before somebody gets hurt in real life now all the famous kindergarten at posted quote. Nobody's gonna say anything about hi. How stomping on lucky logo. We're just gonna act like that didn't just going to act like we did see that the belief is going on. You can't do that. That's not cool on no level. All of us need to be better. I'm just saying so marcellus kyrie taken too much heat for the logo stone. If he is taking he. I don't know what temperature that is room temperature. This ain't first of all. I hate to laugh at you when you wanna be over some. But i'm laughing at you and don't you take those shots at big baby my homeboys slash former neighbor. But yeah big baby. Calm down if whoever else is this. This is embassador. Talk see us former athletes who doing good with the organizations that got our brands associated with these teams will go out there and say things like this. And i want to know that in reality this saying about this is laughable. It's not even a real thing all out there who's trying to get into these coals auto. Put me on the screen right now. So i could disrespect him and see do. What's this you said the hook 'em sign but flip flip flops. That yet this does it. Was that mean. I dare you to do something. I just dumped on your lucky. You go because i'm from the lab where they really banged told me and i thought that was silly but that was life or death would ask. Cd's silly but not life or death. I have no respect for so. They tipped the ball off his head. They do a lot of looking. And now you're gonna get mad at the end of the day because he stepped onto one more time. Get real co-signed that i mean. Is it disrespectful to those who used to be a part of the organization. Yes kind of like putting a horns down. It's disrespectful if you went so but at the end of the day like the logo. The logo heartbeat in my coach always told me. Don't let anything without a heartbeat. Beat you so. Yeah kyrie's donna logo but to your point and i would love to see. How many times do people will step on that logo throughout. The course of the game was kyrie's intensively and intentional rather and intensively disrespectful. Maybe but we're not gonna act like kyrie contribute more than the majority of people who have an opinion to the boss. Still be real so when i look at it to me again. I co-signed what you're saying. This guy taken too much heat for this. If you want to call it goes this. Florida trump to be scared of aaron rodgers joining. Afc west. we go answer that one. Next speeds please. it's me. Aaron rodgers is still on the packers. Roster but trade rumors have been floating around that he could thin broncos played at least twice a year when asked about the possibility of facing rogers in the same division. That's home said quote. Just make it a little tougher force where up for the challenge. Dotson scared of rogers born in afc west. He's a definitely be concerned. Big dog patrick. Mahomes at sixteen and two verse. Afc west so he's got his hand all over the afc west and full control when you talk about joining the afc west. Rogers would obviously be joining the raiders. But more than likely the broncos. Patrick mahomes seven overs the broncos so all when you already have something completely in control and something could come disrupt that control. Something could come disrupt the autonomy of that situation. Yes he should be concerned. Furthermore patrick mahomes biggest nemesis does for in the nfl. Tom brady. he's to win three verse. Tom brady and owen. Tubers tom brady. And the playoffs tom. Brady's delta playoff losses. The only current equivalent to tom brady and the nfl as far as age. Plus accomplishments is aaron rodgers. We've seen what tom brady does to. Patrick mahomes aaron rodgers could pose a similar threat. If you were to join the west interesting as i look at my google and i'll look at my notes. Oh yeah they on the same page right now What you scared to be scared of. I know air. Rogers is great. This is not a shot. A aaron rodgers shot at what you guys have put up in terms of body work and resume when you had your better regular season record. Did you win a symbol. Kinda like golden state. No you did when you took some hits. Iron sharpens iron. You went to a few things on the road to the super bowl. You actually perform better in that same super bowl fourteen one last year. I don't know false sense of confidence. I don't know a little area. I don't know but they didn't make the proper decisions and the proper edits when presented with different information. We we we analyze the road to the super bowl for the chiefs. You were telling about how many points are gonna score. And i was like yeah. They're gonna score over thirty. They did not score test but more importantly we also started to analyze this. This is how teams are playing the chiefs but because they didn't make those decisions they didn't make those edits. They walked into a situation where they weren't as sharp. They should have been obviously. They had some injuries. Obviously nothing's perfect. But why if you went to a little more before you.

"You know i i love how you numbers in pieces together to expand your point. I love it because there's really good because it can kinda take you away from what's really going on this thing. I love about this ocho. I love how you used to be. An attorney broke. Time an attorney because you can you can you can sell you can sell lauder is to eskimo who now the difference to me and i'm just saying this is that what you're asking kevin. It goes back to this. And what you're asking honest do or step to do or james is totally and point is when he went to golden state. He went there to win okay. He went there to win and he proved that within that aspect that he was the best player in the finals. He proved that okay. We're playing with step. He proved k. D. is unique animal men in this game in this game and we can debate numbers all day long. You know. it's a matter of choice in the matter of preference a matter what you think to me k. D. is the best player because froze up. Oh damn ripe man steph got boy. You know you're praying man because you're asking me but he already say katie's the best player so i get it because katie wouldn't in the hamptons begging receiving begging when seventy three win warriors came in collection. Would they collection plate katie. Please we all we can offer you. Please come our team. Lebron james up as katie is the only player in nba history to average thirty or more points on fifty. Forty ninety split. Yes he's in the club. It doesn't matter and he's done it before he did in two thousand nineteen is will katie best player on the planet and for those who are now thinking he's proven that means you've been doubting him because he's already been that coming up. Trait is the forty nine but they're still support. Gb we'll tell you if that's a good idea next speak for you said basically made that long you want to speak for yourself ourselves while they all you hear it emmanuel hundred days away so kick off for the nfl season to get on the road against super bowl. Champion bucks. can't wait now. This head to san francisco where rookie trae lasts has already been turned to head. This off season lasts is the niners future. But don't forget about jimmy garoppolo. Poor say timmy. G chew still has significant support in forty niners and he feel like if he's in the lineup and he's healthy we win. So jimmy d still have significant support but the forty niners. No he shouldn't and sell you know me. I'm a very kind individual. Not a nice individual off camera. We were discussing the difference between nice and kind. Yes seeing nicest to a select few individuals being kind marcellus amidst to the wide spectrum. I'm kind individual. You're kind sweet to everyone. My dog include you. jimmy jeep. Being kind you cannot forsake the truth and the truth is unlike in life and football it is a zero sum game yes zero sum game very simply means if i give to one. I am taking from another. If you give to jimmy taking from trae lance your third overall. Pick sell you've been on the football field than i have in clearly longer than anyone watching these show. What that means is this. You roll your ones out there versus your ones your first team offense i your. I was your second team offense. Where's your second team defense. Who third team offense defense right now while you have a ninety man roster and thus you have the body if jimmy g. gets reps i the i team defense. That's taking reps away from trae lance birth. The i team defense now. It's taking steps away from church lands. Because he's still get reps. I the second team defense but his taking away reps from the first team defense so to significantly support jimmy g. is to not significantly support. Trae leads to give jimmy g. more attention in breaking down the tape of him going against the i team defense that is to give trae lance less attention and breaking down the tape going against the i team defense to give. Jimmy is to take from trae lamps or better yet. Because i like using words intentionally to give to. Jimmy g. is to simultaneously not give to trae lands and thus trae lance as being robbed of something he could be given House divided cannot stand. You can't stand for jimmy d we'll also standing for trae lance you can't talk to 'em j while simultaneously talking to your daughter. You can't talk to everybody turned now. She's to simultaneously. Do two things at once. So yes the forty niners. I'll rather than speaking in double negatives are the forty niners should no longer support jimmy g. because to significantly support jimmy g. is to not significantly support trae lance. Let me remix that right. Thank you dr. dre young. We both from compass. We'll solve all get you to give to jimmy. G. is not take away from trae last to give to jimmy. G. is to give the forty niners a chance dry. I'll tell you. What is something that compton in brewing. Yes and a house divided castel sant staying. I lived in dallas and it was a symmetrical house. You're walking less. I had a master bedroom rights. I had went over teammates. I don't know it was divided but it's still sue. Oh here we go. You messed up nice kind whatever you wanna do. We get into this guest. You don't talk about jimmy g. q. Opposite here and don't have shots coming back to. Let's start with the injury concern because the only thing we can really slight jimmy g. q. On seriously is his injury issues. But i asked everyone. Do you throw in the towel. When you see other injured players like they're trying to throw in the towel with jacobs. Do you mortgage to farm like you did to get trae lasts when jimmy g. q. Has these injury issues. Jimmy g. q. Last ten games correct. You think anybody on that team for damn miss more games to him. You don't throw in the towel on them. No this talk about. Nick boasts fourteen day young nick. Dvd young solomon thomas. They d fort richard sherman. Yeah they all missed more games him but let's talk about some other players that didn't miss as many games and he's still throwing the town. Tell brennan is yup. And nope komen writing a mess of his bolstered. Okay no no towels on the ground. We ain't going into town on them. But we're gonna do for jimmy gp tell you why this is such a bad take for anybody who doesn't believe in jimmy g. q. And that's why. I'm glad there are people outside of this building that support jimmy q in that building because he is planned with a coach since. I wanna be kind but not forsake the truth as i chose says that doesn't do it without jimmy. Cue which shanahan and the forty nine percent with jimmy g. sixty eight percent. What is it without him. Twenty six percent. Why would you wanna damn what looks like. The one reason that keeps all standing the house together. Jimmy g. q. Forty niners just a better team with jimmy g. q. Score more average more yards better third team and the defense.

Businessman already fight me and my head and in real life saying nothing like person personal personal interaction to close that deal to have the energy between you not some following or some device to block that same transmission of energy. I am with those people. Here's the thing. The this world came curved. Everyone's feelings man like already sloped. It's already rounded. We can't curve to everyone's feelings and not wanting to do to work is not a reason to not do the work now. Here's my greatest question. And i told knew i wouldn't go necessarily go here but dammit new thing is 'cause go therapist and my therapist cantilever says a lot of people. I don't need to see me but they don't know what they're feeling. So this is my greatest question not to direct it and they only but just people in general. What's the distinction between what you want to do and what you can't do because if you're talking about mental health this is something serious like we can't just start. Applying that label us is back ordered because we didn't respect it for so many generations but now that we do respect. The order is loosening all of a sudden. We can't go from something debt. When i grew up. I just didn't wanna do. I told you. I wanted to quit football every other day. But now we're at a place where i'm gonna say by middle health when my daddy is looking at me like you just don't want to go to today. S my distinction. I wanna make it in the case. Let's the car in part is about to get good. We going to you. You bring up so many great points now. Let's pivot to one. We can stay safe and stay incubated and not be you know what i'm saying. You remember my first year. My first two years in college. We had to it as k two days old school today. You put into wet pads back on again but then by my third and fourth year in college two days became too much they became outlawed in the ncwa. You can't practice in full pads twice. You can go out there again but you can't practice in full pads twice because they finally said for what we're running too big of a risk to the safety and health physical health of our athletes that sure you could do it and maybe a lot of athletes don't want to do it as opposed to their physically incapable of doing it but we finally got to a place of safety and saying what's the point in doing as we can survive in the sport will survive without them. You've been air times. And i've always said this before you know no greater mental toughness in life than when you literally think you cannot run one other sprint. And you hear the whistle blow and you run another one and you go. And you're like i did it but remember we've had so many unfortunate situations across the nation with air responsible strength coaches across big time programs. Who don't take heed to their athletes. Who were saying coach. I can't run another one. And then what happens. Athlete ends up in the hospital more worse and then after that happens now all of a sudden. We're like okay. Okay okay okay. We not only need a strength coach out on the field. We need the head athletic trainer out on the field and now we need a neutral arbitrator out on the field because we wait for a tragedy to strike to finally say okay athlete. We'll take you seriously. I guess you really we're tired. I don't think we should wait for tragedy to strike in regards to mental health to say okay naomi. i'd take you seriously. I guess you really couldn't do the interviews. Because what did we want to wait on for the or worse when they owe me for her to be admitted into some sort of mental ward alva-. We're like oh sorry. Naomi thoughts and prayers. And we're all sending praying sign emoji. Was she already done told us so. I think we should learn from previous sports. Let's not wait for the athlete to collapse. Wall running to take preemptive and precautionary measures. There is a very fine line. Yes because the body is capable but the body is capable of the mind. You have to convince but what happens when it's the mind. That's an incapable and the body. Now you have to convince. I think it's a fine line that i don't want to flirt with just because of life and how precious it is. Do you know naomi everybody. Do not wish you did that. Take right they're put in a bottle give it to her even if it is a little late because what you said is what she should her through this process before. This process even became public and respecting her partners in the tennis association. 'cause she didn't tell us and i don't wanna hold her foot to the fire necessarily but her first one our first layer of public consumption was she just didn't want to do interviews. That led us to mental health issues. And now all reports go back to two thousand eighteen her talking about this. But this is my only issue. Whitney only only issue is hey.

Here's why we're gonna root for whoever wins that french open and even if there's a no name all of a sudden they got a win on their bill they go. Us open get another one. They go to australia. Get another one causes. Naomi were are you and only have to deal with her own issues. It's just if felt like the way it layered out.

"Of these guys are making millions of dollars every jobs. We had a place right now. We're a former player. We'll take a shot at a guy who's making three million dollars 'cause like hey even that good but you know why he's getting paid. That much konami is that good and is driven by these interactions. Not necessarily on our shows where we acting to the sports world in general but the beat writers get the information that brings it to us to articulate that has to be a transaction based on popularity based on production. The top dogs. So i'm looking at this situation. Simply as the record companies indirect indirect recordings you promote that album. Trust me we made his album invested into it. You invested into an audio talent. All your skills money. It's taught to hit the road local radio station. It's not hit the road posters. Or you don't want to vote shoot. Oh you don't want to do radio interviews. Oh really how to album gonna sail bag. That ain't enough the performances. Great on the field dating enough because we all know as you know in the entertainment business and you gotta go out there and have those impressions boom. You're on something. And i love what you're onto. I think that the consequence very simply be the person taking l think about this. I was thinking about when you compare someone like. Tim duncan to someone like the late. Kobe bryant on the top of our head on the tip of our tongue. You're very quick to utter that. Kobe was better. Not maybe not me but the figurative tie very quick to say oh man. Kobe was way better than donkey. Start until you do to research all right. And then you're like wait same amount of championships. Duncan has an extra finals. Mvp dunkin has an additional regular season mvp. Dunkin has one less. I believe all star appearance so wait was was koby better than tim. Duncan actually if you look at what they accomplished on the court or was kobe more no more marketable more spoken. More media savvy than tim. Duncan now again. I brought up to characters. Who based on what they achieved. Court you can vary. Well get into a hair-splitting conversation but in your mind you don't split here. you instantly go to. Kobe was better and you instantly go to. Kobe was better. Because you can place koby and commercials you can place kobe. Commercials really everything. He did on a cart. It just pivoted to you. pull the jersey commercial. The the black mamba commercial body armor advertisement dust commercial. Exactly being my point interviews quotable along with obviously other things so with that being said. I'm thinking really that the service was just done to. Tim duncan just because you don't think of anything. Tim duncan ever say you don't really think of. Tim duncan in a commercial. He wasn't as marketable. He took his l. figuratively speaking took his l. In lack of endorsements comparatively he took his al in a lack of exposure comparatively. Because when you think of their difference in perceived greatness there difference in perceived greatness was mainly a result of a media push not was accomplished on the court so i think the athlete doesn't speak. They're taking their consequence and their consequences. A lack of exposure. They're consequence is a lack of an extra media. I don't think we need to additionally fine additionally do x y and z. They're finding themselves and lack of money garnered. Well here's the thing. Ns all real but you also are robbing the economy for what. Kobe contributing greater too because. Kobe is gaining the interest. Now kobe's going to benefit from that as well having his nineteen year that he had All of the extra endorsements etc. But also tim duncan was making dough that the economy is partly driven by these contributions. So when it's time to eat when it's contracts you all their kobe in the same luck. But when it's time to put in on this i tell people all the time that's why i'll have all these new friends and allies. I can't meet somebody tomorrow. We can't be great. But i'm not seeking it because hey everybody shows up for the parade but who was there to build the flips. Because you know macy's day parade. Whatever parade dates given day parade. They build floats next week. And then in november december. We see the parade so right now a donkey. You wanna tap out on all this boat in float building go but you're going to show up when his ray it get your dope. Here's another thing about this. Because i love that tape right there. I love how you talk about it. Because it's a konami based here's our problem in highschool. I hated it taking tests one. I guess you could call it anxiety if it was properly diagnosed because everyone knew me to be so smart i hated the test because it was going to be were is. He is smart as i thought especially me. I'm going to an ivy league marsala. I know that. But if i ain't get a plus shots correct. So here's the thing. I hate taking tests. But i took him even though we probably create an anxiety. I took you know. Because i want to go into new further. If i take those damn tests. I knew that it was an obligation to an opportunity. I wasn't going to columbia. I wasn't going to college if i take those tests. So here's life to all of these athletes. there are tests. You have to take now want to take that. Should take half the tech or your opportunities won't be best and there will be consequences for you not taking those same love that okay. Let's go there. I wasn't going to use this but you probably you let me is time to drink. Cell phones have vastly advanced from the late. Nineteen ninety s to twenty twenty one where we exist now. We have seen a vast growth and cell phones in the use of airplanes are vastly different now than they were when i believe it was the wright brothers who created though they'll right yes vastly different now than they were then yes but the school system is relatively equivalent to still root moving around in a horse and carriage because he's still got teachers at the front of a classroom. You still got. The students are still gotta talk more. You still got a whiteboard when you talk about our educational system it's very vastly outdated these same word that naomi use when talking about doing interview. Okay let's think that the way in which we currently do interviews interact with the media. Still very outdated athlete would rather just talk to their sports information director. We'll talk to their head of pr. Hey here are the questions. Answer them. I will disseminate that outwards. Or if you rather have the lead box in the lead at the four letters and the lead at other companies in speak but as opposed to having fifty different people asking a bunch of the same questions. I don't disagree with you that contributions should be made. But can we talk about how the contributions are made you. And i know yeah. You're taking a test. It doesn't gauge. How smart you are taking a test. Simply gauges how. Well you can repeat. Material was not the best test taker. What your boy can succeed in life. I agree with you. And i co signed everything you said in regards to test taking. But i think that's outdated as well just like the way in which. We communicate with the media. Oh i like you. I like you.

"Do Richie JJ? I liked your call from Alabama as line of thinking about trying to get rid of canary because albatross around the Mets fan and it's going to be albatross around in neck for a while now for the next four years. I guess I would I liked his idea that I would change the players, I would try to get shipped them to an American contender and team like Boston. It Boston can hang around, long enough and start getting cores maybe overtake Tampa Bay. And you can write you can over the next month before the trade deadline, you can get back on track you get back on track. I'd be willing to send some million up to Boston and, and the continues to depart that will be for the Mets could get back to give him canot anything return if I can get rid of that can no contract and send them send from there yet. The team on building the bullpen next season young, it's maybe just a bad year. And maybe it'd be better next year. That to me is worth is not as not comparable to what the burden of Kono's contract going to be to the Mets down the road because the metro cheap and they're not going to have live, that they're not going to work around that contract. That's outrageous. I don't think it's unreasonable. I don't know if the Red Sox would be willing to take on Robbie Kano's contract. I don't because a member of the Red Sox. I now already over the luxury tax. They spent a ton of money they won the championship. Remember, they didn't bring back kimbrel because they were kind of cutting down on payroll costs. They need relievers. I don't know how they feel about the s of a million. I think if visit guy, they'd want on the New York Mets who be said Lugo, that be the guy in Boston. I'd be looking at Google. Feel about trading them games on the five hundred to me. If you names Santa Alonzo McNeil. And I guess throw him in there to those four I'm willing to talk about anybody else. Nine games on there. Going to tell me this is a contending team. What have you been watching over the last three weeks to limit thirty seven here on this Friday evening? It's JJ after dark, chancy Stansky right here on the fan. We a lot more on the reeling New York Mets China figure out what got the Yankee should target when it comes to adding a starting pitcher.

"NBC Boston Celtics reporter, Chris Forsberg on spayed and fits on ages future with the team Danny sixty years old and really has in recent years showed no signs of slowing down. He loves every aspect of this job. And you know, I think a little bit put in the spotlight with with Magic Johnson stepping down by just how much these general managers have to do in terms of scouting, and the long hours on film and traveling around the country and looking at all these guys and building the roster. It's just endless and standing that part of the job. But certainly you do wonder what the medical staff went vise them. And how they'll let him proceed it's hard for me to see him not being a part of of this. And and I know how much he just enjoys being around this team. So I. I think the be something therefore, but certainly I will be curious to see how it unfolds from here. Hopefully, again, you know, having been through this. I I don't know if that will necessarily how that changes the medical outlook. But I'm hopeful here that he's able to continue on in his role as long as the medical staff is family is on board with me time nets gore. Dangelo Russell was detained at New York's LaGuardia airport Wednesday after a small amount of marijuana was found in his luggage. Russell was issued a summons for possession and released woes on how the incident might impact his pending restricted free agency, but doesn't his bed model citizen for the nets. He made his first all star team. This year really helped will that team to the postseason, and you know, he doesn't have a history of legal of legal trouble. He's going to be sought after restricted free agent. And the nets are going to really I try to go the distance here to get a deal done with him before he even gets out into the marketplace. Nobody's appetite for. Daniel. Russell has changed over that that episode last night. Chance that Russell may have played his last game in a nets uniform. It has nothing to do Wednesday as incident. Instead if Brooklyn can lure pair marquee free agents PTI on if the nets have shot at landing the big fish in that free agency pool like anything is possible. But Brooklyn doesn't roll off your tongue as glamorous destination the skyscrapers in Broadway shows or across the bridge. We've heard this before. And I remember when you took the flag up for when he first bought the nets have you seen the private plane that everybody's going to want to sign with them. And I don't know that they made any particular impact. So my sense is that while they're probably for the top three free agents Kawai, Leonard, Kevin Durant. Kyrie Irving probably four to six teams that any one of them could go to maybe Brooklyn's involved, but I wouldn't make any money the favorite when you. That's a good and fair question. I don't know that I will make anybody the favorite right now either. But let me just go back to Brooklyn for second. Because you, and I will I was in Brooklyn. You didn't actually go to the games, you let your feet cross the breeze. You told me you walk bridge. I'm probably treasonous of you to go to Brooklyn, Manhattan guy, Long Island guy guy, baby. Tony you mentioned skyscrapers Broadway shows. Yeah. Twenty two year old brothers ain't necessarily looking at Broadway show. Okay. What they do. Consider. I'm told is Brooklyn to be the cool place the place they go to hang out. Brooklyn is the scene of the restaurants and clubs, and that's what they go. And so they apparently I've seen appealing. I'm not a New Yorker, they appear to view Brooklyn differently than you say Smith. And. Let's let's not just guys. But that's fine.

"Hey, dan. Hey, evan. Sean bring up a couple of points. I was happy about the Christoph especially when they got to. I found is. Yup. But I mean, first of all what does that they had to max deal. Thank you. I mean, I wouldn't have because they needed to move Tim Hardaway and Courtney Lee, and it would have been very difficult to move those contracts without putting in a chip like Kristaps Porzingis, which I understand probably win. So I was very happy. I that you I rather that makes it a lot better. I mean when you look at history. They always signing free agents. I mean, it's probably not gonna be Kevin Durant. Kyrie Irving, it'll probably be more like the Kemba Walker. Maybe Klay Thompson. But but. But Dan, if they can't get top of the line, then don't sign long-term max contracts to players who are good but not good enough, and that's going to be their test. Look the history says Kevin Durant not gonna come here bought and look at Joe Joe is not an optimistic. I log before this trade was made. I think it was this past summer. I said to him what's your confidence level? Kevin durant? And he had it look he'd say ten fifteen percent. But he said, it feels different than LeBron twenty ten and it does you just hear more buzz about the idea of Durant coming here. Then you ever seriously did with any of these other big free agents. Does that mean he's coming here? No. But it does feel like they have a fighting chance. And we've talked about this on this Saturday show a lot the whole where would Kevin Durant go. I've done a lot of Silla queens about it soliloquies about it. And the one thing is if he leaves Golden State you have to ask yourself something. Where's it going? There aren't a lot of great options. Now, I can tell you why Milwaukee in Indiana makes sense. But I don't think any of us really believed. Kevin durant? We'd go to those markets. We just don't buy it. And I think those two franchises do make sense. And they both would have the cap room to make a move like that the clipper thing has always been weird to me. Why was he going to the LA clippers clippers who are better than the Knicks are better because of guys that are free agents at the end of the year like Danilo Gallinari until bias Harris. So what's the appeal of L A? You know, I I kind of take the nets out of it. I know they've got the cap room. Maybe it's my own bias. He's not really believing until I see a guy like Durant or Kawhi Leonard coming here. But it does feel like they have more of a fighting chance at Kevin Durant. But if they miss out on him, the key is being smart because having a lot of cap room and a lot of draft picks, you can still rebuild inequality way. The question is would they go that route? Or would they max out guys that I think a lot of us agree wouldn't take them to that championship level? Jason in Montgomery. Hi, jason. Hey, how you doing? All right, man. What's up? Hope the voice gets better man NATO. Yes. I was I was just gonna say a, let's point Spencer Dinwiddie. Well, first of all I like how the that's playing and that fight that they showed it San Antonio. They lost the game. I just bought was incredible gave to watch and the Spencer Dinwiddie injury. Do we know when Spencer is due to come back and what he does come back..
