Chris Broussard: LeBron is right, KD, Warriors Big 3 were better than Nets

"Asked about playing in next week's free for the first time on thursday. Lebron james pump the brakes on calling it. An unprecedented collection of talent reminding reporters quote. We forgot about katie. Stephan play. already. I mean there you go there you go right there of course lost back to back finals to the warriors big three that he referenced right then i first sard is back joining us. I don't think so chris. Do you agree with the brown hair. Well i i'm guessing that skip sensors and alterior motive. Oh i won't go there. I'll be interested in seeing what he says. But i'm going with the golden state guys staff clay and and i've got five reasons why number one the pieces fit together better when those three katie went to golden state. We had no questions about whether or not it was going to work because none of the guys are ball dominant. None of them needed the ball in their hands. A lot to be effective and give you twenty plus points. Obviously james harden and car. We have been bald dominant dribble it a lot which can make it more difficult to fit together now. They're fitting together great offensively but theoretically there games are a lot more ball dominant. Golden state guys to golden state was better defensively. And i'm not just talking about draymond green. Who's not even part of this conversation. You add katie. Who was younger and i. I'm sure it was a better defender at that point. Then he can be at this point a little older often an achilles injury and then klay thompson was a legitimately very good defender. He made an all nba. Defensive team steph obviously is in the category of harden and kyrie. None of them are really great defenders. The third thing better shooters as well as hard and kyrie shoe. And they are great shooters steph. Curry is the best shooter in nba history. So good that he changed the game. He literally changed the way the nba is played because he's such a great shooter and clay is arguably arguably the second greatest shooter of all time again that enables you to fit better together and certainly for today's game the better shooters i mean. That's a huge thing. You have fourth no drama. They they they were low maintenance guys in golden state k. d. had a little drama but for the most part that's a low maintenance group in brooklyn i i love his game but i gotta worry about kyrie. He was playing great at the beginning of the season. And then all of a sudden just went awol. Is that going to happen again. Is going to be happy. The entire season playing shooting guard. Or will he get the rich to have the ball in his hands more again even last night. Why was car sitting out. They said back tightness. But i bet you replace the next five games and is fine and plays great like they need to be on the floor as much as possible. I can't be legitimately injured hamstring but kyrie hard and they don't need to be just sitting out to rest are so the drama a is there. And here's the final thing steph and clay before k. got there. They proved that they could lead a team to a championship. They proved they didn't need this transcendent lebron or k. d. or somebody like that to lead them to a championship. They didn't need a stack team. They did it on their own k. D. was certainly the best player on those golden state teams but he went to a champion. Already he is still yet to prove. He can lead his own team to a championship. Even though it was the best player kyri hit one of the greatest shots in nba. History may be the greatest. But obviously that was lebron's team. Kyrie has have much playoff success without lebron james yet and we know harden has yet to prove that he can lead a team to a championship. So for all those reasons. I'm going with golden state

Power Rankings: Can the Clippers stay atop the West?

"Espn's nba power rankings. Talking about how great everything was going in. La or how much noise l. Making right now in the sports universe but the lakers no longer number one in the rankings. So maybe la's fallen down a little. Except the clippers have assumed the number one spot kawhi leonard and company. The nba's best record the clippers. Have a six game. Swing with leonard and paul george entering quarantine due to health and safety protocols and patrick beverley. He's out they had a seven game. Winning streak snapped in atlanta. The co and paul george back after missing just two games due to contact. Tracing the clippers are a deep team. There were deep team last year. But i think bach gives them a premium over mantras harrell because he can spread the floor. He can shoot the three and he can rim defend. He can defend the paint at certainly blocked shots. At least he's very good defender. As is harold box more versatile moreover more versatile player you can play a lot of big next to a bacha because he can do some things that some modern pigs can't but serge ibaka is not the reason that they're you know this good. They've played together another season. Tyler is doing a very good job. Don't forget and this goes for what i said about the nets last segment to we're in a covert year. Still where there's not practice like. They're normally is and people are socially distanced so first year teams that come together like the nets last year like brooklyn. This year are at a disadvantage but brooklyn's now going on their second year with sorry. The clippers are largely with the same cast. And yet you know. Lou will mantras harrell reggie jackson nick tomb. Which was a big pickup nick. A tumor he got a max deal or something close to it. Because he was the status all star. I mentioned this last week but at that time. Are you sure that you knew who was going to be better between kawhi leonard klay thompson and nick platoon. But he was in that category people when he got his deal. Weren't even like oh. That's too much for nick petunia. Like oh he's really good player. Lost interest on a noncompetitive team. He looks interested again. Remember he got a max deal wasn't no one. Did him any favors. He earned it so. That's a big pickup for them. Interested nick we can play making do some things but none of this really matters to me for the clippers and i understand power. Rankings are based on regular season performance. Guys until paul. George shows up as like this if paul george showed up his normal self. The clippers are still at a disadvantage against the lakers because kawai and libron or both superstars as is a de. Paul george is the next thing to a superstar. Paul george is not a five star player. He's a four and a half star player. So even if paul george it shows up as his normal self. Ain't going to be enough for the clippers in the playoffs. He has to be just to see but instead of that or even stay the same. He gets in the playoffs. So i don't believe in this clippers team in the play. I don't care what they do. In the regular season. Until i see paul george show up when it matters in the playoffs. A believer

The Golden State Warriors Path to Regain Glory

"Hello hello pablo. I am so excited to talk to you today. Because you have been digging into the golden state warriors and you've talked to their players. Their coaches their executives. But i want to know what other people are curious about. They hear that you're writing a future on the warriors. What did they want to know can still work can steph curry dragged his team by the scruff of its neck into the playoff field. Can they approximate without klay thompson. Kevin durant gone even a glimmer of what they were during their dynasty. And that's what people wanna know. And at the center of all of this kevin this week in particular is steph curry and we can't begin this conversation without talking about what he did specifically on sunday night. How would you describe what you saw. It was a volcano curry leads. In one hand or just off balance grows it up. It's good he's got fifty. Career screen takes a deep free. It's god fifty nine points. Curry takes another three. It's up job. He's got sixty two just unspeakable three point attempts that no person with a good conscience ever a nation of basketball coaches is freaking out. Because they're going to have fourteen year olds in practice pulling up from thirty seven feet. There was the sense coming out of their very met to into road trip. That steps showing few signs he might. It's gonna happen. It may happen. Don't you think it's going to happen. He's starting to move differently. We're starting to find him. The ball and places he likes it and as draymond green said to somebody on the staff. All it takes is one in. We saw that one sunday night against portland and essentially recreated the steph. We knew for those five years over the dynasty. Let's be clear about what the prelude to that career high sixty two was because he was shooting. What like twenty percent from three in those first two games so when people are begging hoping for that volcano to start shaking again. Why do you think it actually ended up exploding as it did. I mean one is just the laws of inevitability second is in your staff. They all emphasize this. And it sounds a little bit like spin. If you're if you're sort of cynical which is look. He's playing with guys that he's never played with before. But when you really start digging into it and you remember what it was like to watch the weird they don't run scripted sets all that much mall. Those great beautiful plays that you see that. Look like basketball ballet. They use intuition. They use a million reps playing together to sort of know where everybody's going to be almost telepathically on the floor. And so you've seen that a million times steph. Runs comes off a pick and roll. He gives the ball up. He relocates to the corner other people kind of follow him there. Somebody comes off the other side and then steph kind of relocates again and you find him and it's so second nature if you watched it for five straight years you come to take it for granted but if the other guys on. The floor aren't versed in the dark arts of golden state warriors movement. It's harder and it was something that i think other teammates. The new guys andrew wiggins kelly oubre rookie. James wideman guys. Who haven't played as long with him. It takes a little while to get in the rhythm. There was like a moment. I think in the milwaukee their second loss of the season where you saw step come off one of those speaking roles and he was going to kind of go fast too slow to the right corner and there was somebody there right and it wasn't the fault of a teammate. It's just they're not equipped with the intuition and just the nuances of golden state warriors basketball. Which essentially is how do we find steph. The right shot at the right moment at the right time precisely where he wants it. It's funny

"Golden state warriors sharpshooter klay thompson tore his right achilles. Tendon they'll be out for another year. Not the klay thompson had choice. But would you voluntarily rupture your achilles tendon rehab for a year and then never really be the same for thirty five million dollars. And that's what klay thompson is. Guaranteed this year.

Thompson has torn Achilles tendon, expected to miss season

"So it's the injury everybody's talking about but with clay sadly you gotta specify which injury you're talking about. Are you talking about the one in game. Six of the twenty nine thousand finals. The last time we saw him play a game or the one suffered earlier in the week. Which is an achilles tendon. Tear he is now out. It could be if the calendars right two and a half years between games. We're looking forward to having him back at the start of the twenty twenty one. Twenty two season knick. Fidel has been all over the warriors for years and he joins us on the shell. Pennzoil performance line nick. Good morning first thing. Just the response in and around the organization on the news zubin. Everybody's just depressed excited leading into the draft. And in the fact that wiseman was there at number two he was number one on their board and and they were just really looking forward to having steph klay draymond and then plugging in wiseman and seeing what we can give them and then they range of emotions in those couple of hours before the draft and then after the draft they really couldn't even celebrate. Everybody was so sad about clay. I mean he is the guy behind the scenes with all the star power in that locker room that sets the tone for everybody else. And that's why kerr and all those players they love it and so to know that he's going to be out again for another year which just crushing for. Everybody involved nikki. Give us an insight. Into how bob myers and company dealt with the news of klay thompson literally hours before the nba draft that make their decision challenging more challenging looking at other guys like lamelo ball considering he was going to be available. Jay bob address that right afterwards instead. Look wiseman was our guy if he was there we were taken him and obviously if the emotions involved right before the big or unprecedented we. We really never seen anything like it. Before where a star player who has won titles in an organization gets another serious injury right before you gotta make a huge selection for your future but all along when you talk to people in the organization they love what wise men could give them and they're confident that once he gets into their system playing and learning alongside draymond that he can be maybe that bridge or potentially down the line Tracey's nobody knows for sure but wiseman all along was their guy in. I don't think anything that happened with. Clay change to focus when he was number two

Warriors' Klay Thompson Reportedly Suffers Season-Ending Torn Achilles Injury

"Back here on this developing story. The news from the nba yesterday was not good hours before the draft klay thompson injuring his right leg during a workout with several nba in ally. He will undergo an mri this morning. The warriors are worried that it could be chilies injury holding out hope. It's not as serious as that. But if you're reading the tea leaves on social media all the reaction that seemed to be coming in. Yesterday it sounded very pessimistic. And so here's the great jalen rose with me here. I see the look on your face. What is your reaction. What what would this mean if this is a bad injury. I'm just really disappointed for clay in. this family. Hopefully is not a torn achilles. Which is being reported. I just remember seeing kevin durant with ice on his calf but ended up having an achilles injury. And it's really unfortunate. Because with the splash brothers healthy with draymond green. And you draft wise men the golden state warriors. We're going to catapult themselves back into contention greenie now without klay thompson. They'll be lower-half playoff team potentially in the western conference and now that he's had achilles injury is potentially in back to back seasons. We now start looking at the future of their team. Wondering ken bay now recapture championship glory. So it was really unfortunate for the golden state warriors and their fans if particularly going into the draft last night. No question about it so all. We'll do we'll sit and we'll hope for better news than some are anticipating and we should have that in a few hours

"klay thompson" Discussed on Get Up!

"Be concerned. I play all those things combined. This far as i know he's playing basketball and <hes>. I don't know who with i think is playing basketball pie. Like a lot of these guys are trying to get ready for ready for the season. Clay of course missed all of last year after the aclu injury. He suffered in the finals that year. Before here are tim. Legler and adrian watson hausky getting up with us earlier today guys. Thanks whoa do. What can you tell us. What do we know about this injury. Greenie lower lower right leg. There's certainly a significant amount of concern among the warriors talked to his agent greg lawrence last night. And they're going to have that imaging this morning a west coast time you'll see some of the warrior personnel front office medical staff coming down to be there his agent there and they're going to get a better sense of the severity of the injury. The torn acl injury was on his left is left knee that causing the last season. This is a right leg injury so it's not the same leg that's not necessarily any indication of how severe it may or may not be but just to sort of by for those award following it last night. The vibe i was clearly getting from you and others covering the story. Was that the level of concern that this is. Something very serious is significant. We don't wanna read too much into it. But am i getting that part of it right. Yeah there's there's a significant level of concern but it could be could it be <hes>. At best strength half at worst is it in the achilles area and so that's why they'll get in there today they'll do the imaging and they'll find out for sure right so tim lego. Let's let's sort of look at this from a bigger picture basketball perspective if klay to missed significant time here this is a long term injury and again we can all hope that it isn't but what would that mean for the warriors championship window. Well my direct answer to that question would be. I think it's still open greenie. I think. Look i'm less concerned about klay thompson potentially missing another years in terms of just guys getting a little bit older steph and draymond both in their early thirties. I'm not as concerned about that. More concerned about what is going to be like coming back from now. Potentially another dreaded basketball injury. That's what you're concerned about and now on each leg so let's see what klay thompson looks like. You know a year from now. That's how john again. We're still waiting to hear the results of that. I still think the windows opening the main reason because we look around the nba. There is only one team right now. That definitively you can say it. Looks like they're put together to win the title. And that's the lakers about virtually every other team in the nba. So this means the warriors getting back together is delayed a little bit longer so be it. I

NBA star Steph Curry on playing golf through the years

"Right stephane. Thanks so much for joining us. I want to start right away with background before. We came on start recording. You already give me bunch excuses about how you haven't been playing a lot so have feeling to know how this is going to go. But i i gotta know some back on. I think it is important. How you got into golf. How much you play grown-up all this started happening before we get into some of the events we've We've seen you play in no the The i've got all the disclaimers and qualifiers from our game got. Those one liners locked up. But i started plan back in By eight or nine my dad. He played six years in the nba. So it's kind of summertime. Hobby is normal kind of father son type of situation. You take me out drive a golf cart. He cut down a little putter. That i'd go hit with In that i started getting more and more Passionate about china learn how to play and by ten eleven playing full rounds them all play low high school golf for three years and then from there may have been bit by the bug ever since it is one of the things look forward during the most when. I'm outside of the court last similarities. To you know the the encore like ball competition what you experience in the in the league in how. I kind of transition that to china. Take everybody's money on the course so good. I was gonna say this from for later. But i want to understand what the gulf culture is like during the nba. Season right because you know guys season kind of your typically goes into june for you guys but you know releases into summer and you can play golf in the summer. How often are you playing during the season. Are you traveling with clubs. Do you need a certain time period on a road trip to be able to play on the road. Have the set course every city you go to. How's that work. All the above. I think the best way to explain it is I guess our team. We are in a little bit more freedom over the last five six seven years to be able to kind of even manipulate the schedule on road trips a little bit to bagan some golfing though so we'll probably play like twice a month during the season. Which is solid Mostly on the road coach. Kerr's amazing it. A go into a city will play. That night might have an early next morning but if we have an off day he'll give us a window to go play in the morning and then cash the plane to go to the next city and then we have the warrior golf team championship. Run a myself. Andrei igwe dollar klay thompson will play. We'd have some front office. Guys that will go out so we had to accrue whenever that wind opened up the group techs going. Hey time we plan where we're going so there's a. There's a golf culture for sure in. Our team is growing across the league. I think every year. I find like five ten guys that are either asking me about what club they should get or where they should get lessons. Or are asia coast cool which i'll bring in clubs on the plane type stuff so we get all those questions is by the by the year is pretty awesome to know. How much did you know that other people are enjoying the game. As much as i do because i think that was one thing especially for golf. Fans that stuck out about the last dance is how often jordan was like as soon as something was over a guy no no. We're going to go play golf. We're going to go play golf and be like a thing that is continually growing. I see andrea vall on twitter all the time. He's obviously you know a huge golf fan. But you know. I gotta be honest. I didn't really understand the depth of your game until you played in the ellie mae classic in two thousand seventeen. So what was you touched on high school golf but have you. Had you played in any golf tournaments since high school before you took on that challenge. Since high school tournament. We play the american century up. In lake tahoe. A play a maybe five or six summers out of out of the eight before i played nellie mae and that one is different experience. Because i think. If i'm on my game i should be like your top eight favorites a win even though haven't won it yet but when you get on alienate classic on the web dot com when it was a korn ferry now. I'm marie list. How far my game is from a professional that earns money is trying to carve out a career in this game. But i feel like i can hold my own so i had like this ghana irrational confidence in that respect but when i got not to the to the first day i i should say i did the practice round and all that really learning how they approach like the preparation for the week and a i'll put so much stress on like the practice rounds like trying to score and then i yo- you're gonna burn yourself out before that's thursday friday. That's not it. I learned that the first six holes. I was mad. I made a bogey or something like relax so it was. It was such a cool experience in five finals. Then play in front of nineteen thousand fans in crazy gentler russia's out in the court there is absolutely nothing to no way for me to really express how nervous i was on that i even had call him a name. I damn near blacked out on the on. The i just hoped i hit it got in the air it was. It was really kind of out of body experience so well. That's not your. It's not your sport sport. You go just go play. This is not your thing and you know you're doing it for a ton of eyeballs. Got to be that kind of feeling. One hundred percent and other thing that i learned which i don't think people appreciate washing these guys week after week after week is allies exhausted like mentally and physically Being in that mode for five hours straight like pre round during around post round. I get getting engulfed sheet. You know there's athletes out there but it's a different experience of staying locked in engaged in all the different ways that they approach kind of being on top of the game. It's is Is pretty awesome.

Do Lakers deserve an asterisk for 2020 championship run?

"Got mentioned Perc said, no Asterix Brian Windhorst are ESPN NBA insider on the hoop collective podcast whether he thinks this title and remember he's been around Lebron longer than anybody that's been covering him whether this title is free clear and legit. I just have really strong beliefs that winning a championship is so hard. No matter. The circumstances that there's never an Asterik I'll I'll never ever I gotta be careful being so you know absolute but I just never believed that I and so this year. I thought that the level of play was great and I thought that the level that the Lakers showed in this bubble was spectacular. They are the absolute worthy champions. It's fair enough. The offense in the bubble especially was at another level. I don't understand why people would even have that conversation I mean you gotTa. All. NBA Players. And all the coaches and the people that have come on with US clearly state how hard it here's the plane of bubble without fans in you have to motivate yourself. I've gone through this many times trying to explain to people. They're stuck in an environment with no fans limited family and supporting family members and friends around. They're stuck in a hotel room not stuck in a ten thousand square foot house. This stuck in. Hotel Room One TV. Okay wallpaper on the walls. You can hear the next door neighbor a thin walls like really like and they're eating basically the same sort of gourmet cookie. There is no going out and getting this. It's totally different. I am not going to do a disservice to the Lakers by giving them Astros for this year saying, Oh, this is crazy. It's insane what they've been able to pull off during a pandemic during social justice all the things they've stood for not being around their family to do this wasn't insane insane year end insane accomplishment, but but. I do look forward to next year. That was your Asterik, I do I do I do afford to win Steph? Curry Klay Thompson draymond green when they're fully healthy what they can bring to the table I. Do look forward to seeing what the clippers will bring to the table and if they actually do how higher coach right if they actually do meet in the playoffs how that will be the coli that's pg going Lebron James and I do look forward to seeing you know Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving and Brooklyn what that brings it a table what happens with the would milwaukee and Jaanus. Could they get a Bradley bill to come to the table that missing link with Chris Middleton? There are a lot of things that look forward to next year considering if teams have to go on the road and when that or how that stuff plays out when it's not at a new site. So never going to disservice this was one of the most incredible things I've ever seen, but I do so why? So why are people out there trying to do a disservice given ashes to the? Lakers. Why? I I think people were doing that at the beginning by saying, Hey, you know you're not GonNa but They didn't make any sense he. Didn't make any sense I mean those are the people that haven't been to the bubble that haven't left their family for three and a half four months that don't know what the social pressure is the pressure to be alone to handle all that stuff there somewhere else.

How the Warriors stack up against Jordan's Bulls

"Everybody in the free world. Watch the last dance the other night. It appears Draymond. Green did too and draymond green went on a podcast yesterday. uninterrupted W RT s after. Show party with Paul Rivera and Maverick Carter. No less And he likened their last season with Kevin Durant the warriors to what he had just watched on. Tv with the last season of the Bulls and he didn't hold back and he said one of the things from watching it. Was that what you saw? Is everybody kind of set it up like this is going to be the last year and so there was none of that elephant in the room hanging out there for their team That last warriors team with Durant and said that you know. Steve tried to deal with it but Kevin was asked about it every day. Dream on saying I want to be a warrior for Life Klay say and I want to be a warrior for life and then there was this elephant in the room the entire year and it was almost as if he watched the last dance and thought Jeez They handled that a lot. Better like hanging out there the whole year. Everybody knew that was going to be the end and so they just treated it that way the whole year. What you guys think. I mean ownership didn't handle it better. The player of the players may have the players may have handled it at worst. And Scottie Pippen you know getting the surgery when he did wanting out you know Jordan thinking was selfish but ownership on the warriors side of things. At least their goal is building with sustainability. They WANNA keep steph curry and Klay Thompson and continue winning. Reisen Dorf in Krause and the Bulls were ready to pull the plug after the first three championships. Trying to trade pippen for camp granted that still a win but then after it it's about China. Tear Down Arriba. I don't see that from the warriors now but it is fascinating. How much history has repeated in some ways with the disease of more and whatnot that manifested with Katie? Always being jealous of steph curry in the spotlight that he received and you look at what the Bulls went through in the nineties. I it is hard to see the parallels from the players side. We think I didn't see it. I just think Jerry mind was a I think he was a little narcissistic with it is totally different situation. Durant in that situation is basically the Rodman character. Rodman was on the Bulls for three years. Durant shows up for three years pushes him to another level but other I mean the bulls thing was so different Jordan and pippen were together for you know twelve years and there were Phil Jackson for. I don't know it was at least nine or whatever and everything was the same and they were just going going going and they had all these different ups and downs and that warriors thing you know they durant was on that team for blip was if you add up when when he actually showed up and then when he left. It's less than three years. It's like thirty months It's not a perfect comparable for for either team. But I do think you know the players you know seeking that attention. Wanting what's there's at I think with that aspect there's some similarities but overall though I mean I'm with you in the sense that ownership in front office objectives here are far different in what the Bulls wanted to do in the nineties with Crowson. Reisen Dorf is far different than what the warriors are trying to do with Myers and and warriors ownership. Now right I mean the differences with the warriors thing. It was one person undermining the whole thing. Durant yeah the Bulls thing it was. It was like a bad marriage with you. Know eight nine different people. All knowing like the marriage is ending and I think with the warriors they kept trying to pull durant back in that second season when he was there was when it started to fall apart in the third season. I still feel like they felt like it might be salvageable until they had that clippers game and then after that I think there are some similarities with the chemistry. Let's say let's say this. Let's say draymond. His way would have played out the way he wanted to write like. I don't buy for one second. If Kevin Durant started that season said this is my last year with the warriors it still would have been a problem like the right here the whole year by the way. He should have done that though. That's how he should have handled it and I think part of the problem is he didn't handle it that way. And you know the players and the team new organization. They knew he was leaving. They knew about all the New York stuff they thought it was gonna be the Knicks but they knew he was leaving. It was by especially by February march ever in the league new so I think from that standpoint underminded what's the elephant in the room. That draymond talking about that. You know what I'm saying if they all had this understanding Kevin. Ain't going to be with US after this year. Then why is he acting like it was a problem throughout the entire year? That Kevin was just saying Oh. I don't know we'll see we'll because I think Kevin probably agree with this. I think there was still hope that he might do a one eighty. You know I I think that. And honestly with the with the ninety eight balls and you're gonNA find out in the tenth part it came a lot closer to everybody coming back except for Rodman I I think they knew Rodman was done but I think once they actually won. I think there was a moment there where they were like Holy Shit. What are we doing? We gotTA defend this again.

LA Lakers: Takeaways from the first half of the season

"Win in Denver. A tough place right okay. Heading into the all star break four-game lead. I know it doesn't matter. Homecourt advantage Blah Blah Blah. How come we're not talking about how impressive first half of the season? This is for the Lakers. Everybody's talking about the clippers in the off season during the season because we live in a Wa Lakers are okay. Go ahead the last years of the number one seed. It didn't matter they didn't win a championship. The number two seed one titles is it. All I'm saying is the number one seed especially when we talked about it yesterday with the clippers if the clippers and Lakers they're all playing in the same building and I don't think it's that big advantage to beat a number one. I really don't have when they played the clippers in the playoffs. They have seven home games. Here the Rose Casino Clippers Games. There will be more Lakers fans there. There's no doubt about I think though is because we all know about the playoff. Yes we know Lebron you know. He had this great regular season but about winning the championship for both the clippers and the Lakers. I think that's why we're talking more about this than that. Great Win last night. It was a great win but it was. One of eighty two was impressive. You go to Denver and you beat them in their place. That's news that's really really. What are we gonNA talk as much about a if they lose their next game to a bad team? We're going to talk about the Celtics tonight. Are we gonNA have the same energy tomorrow? Words darn is big and is important as the Lakers in search of Lebron's not even that it's not even that what we've seen with Kawai is even last year. We saw him in and out of the lineup. In and out of the line of all regular season and then what happens in the postseason? He says I'm playing. He obviously has to play and look what the result ended up being. So with the with the clippers you automatically say he'll be sort of blew era. We see the same recipe being built in orchestrated here in La. We'll is okay you you too are starting irk me. With this whole. We saw the result the championship. Okay can we at least talk about this? Is You love to call. The warriors chip fraudulent Kawai. Leonard faced a team that Kevin Durant played twelve minutes in this series. Klay Thompson got her done. At what point are we going to say listen? It was a nice championship. Well done you. Do you mind being down Janas. Yeah they were GONNA smoke. Sorry let me let me say this off. This is the best player on planet Earth. Stuff you argue. He's in his better. This is designed to be. Why did you say Anthony Davis was better and Anthony? Davis legs Kuwabara Lakers to the Lakers. I'm not saying kawais definitely better. Clearly he doesn't control a game initiate an office like Lebron but clearly at this point a better defender at a goal to move Kawais. GotTa go to move where he had to undergo in the mid range. Yes but that's part of the discussion. He when he needs a bucket. He's GonNa get to a few spots in the mirror. Good above sixty five percent of those shots.

Golden State of Affairs: No Curry, No Klay. What's Next?

"What if I told you the best team in the NBA would become the worst? That really is a thirty for thirty TAGLINE WAITING TO HAPPEN NICK FIDEL covers the golden state warriors for ESPN. Okay Nick. I think it was last week. The that draymond green so eloquently summed up the state of the warriors right now. That's really the best way to it. Could you say Mr Green diagnosis is accurate. Yes no doubt. Meet people all around the league. They saw that that quote there were like wait. Wait wait what it's the warriors it's the warriors and the reality was even with a healthy dream on Steph. They were really we bad in for so many people for the last five years or so. who had watts his team dominate for so long there was a reality in the moment Omen that hey. This is not the same team that we've been watching the coaches and some of the staff members as people were were warm-up takes over the summer that they were just like what what what are people saying. I think they understood that there was going to be a lot of growing pains this year. And now all those pains have come to the forefront really really so during the off season you feel. There was a gap between the public perception of this team. The belief that they would still contend and the internal perception no question it was always for the warriors a gap year from the moment when go back to the finals. Kevin gets her Kevin Durant and then clay tears. ACL Well when you look at the way the roster was being constructed with nine guys who were twenty three years old or younger and you looked at the fact that they were hard capped apt and then they added de Ngelo Russell and you saw the pieces that were in play so many people on the outside went. Oh well you know what they still have Steph Jeff and they still have dream on and Klay. We'll be back at some point and people internally were like wait wait wait wait wait. Wait you have steph. WHO's GonNa have defenders all all over him all the time you've drawn who has struggled at times offensively and who knows if Claes can actually come back or not so all along? There was a there. It was a big difference in what the public perception of the words was this year. In the moment and what people inside the organization felt like it was going to be. Do you think that reality set in one clay got hurt tots hunting and Thompson brats. Now why pay me no. Let's go back in in time in. This goes back to about a year ago. Now now when K. D. and dream on got into that verbal back and forth at staples playing the clippers from that moment and even before that moment there were a lot of people in the organization. That were like. Kevin's probably gone. The thing that really sent this into a different path wasn't that Kevin got hurt because sadly the split was already pretty much done it felt like at least when Klay Thompson got hurt. That changed a lot of things because clay get being hurt that triggered triggered the de Ngelo Russell move. And then you're you're trading away Andrea Dolla. If clay doesn't get hurt maybe you keep big dollar. You don't hard cap yourself yourself this season you come into the new building with both healthy splash. Brothers and Draymond. When Klay got hurt that changed the way this season was going to be viewed? What expectations like first steph curry coming into this season Steph heard the chatter? Uh He always says that he doesn't pay attention to the outside sources me but that's ridiculous I mean he's he's a human being. He knows what's being said. He knew that everybody thought that this is going to be another. Mvp Year for him. He wanted to win the award. But I think Steph knew all along you take clay off the floor. And he's now the focal point with Steph. He knew as much as Kevin. I think drove people crazy easy sometimes within the organization. Nobody doubted just how phenomenal a player. He was Steph walking into this year. Hearing that everybody's saying it all this is your time to shine again. You're the MVP. I think he knew in the back of his mind all along. This is going to be very tough. I don't think the reality of Steph winning winning the award ever matched up to the expectations. They had to begin with. That's interesting to hear because you're right there was a perception or even a hope that we would get that full courier right because with K. D.. They've had to split some of the credit as well as the time during the regular season. And the idea of Steph unleashed. I was really intriguing to people. It was GONNA be awesome but people and this is going to be a recurring theme. When talking about the words they were living in the past people kept saying? Oh we'll steph. Is is incredible and he can do whatever he wants. He's one of the the very best players in the league. He's the best shooter I've ever seen in my life but when you're getting getting two and three bodies thrown at you at every play you're not gonNA play the same way next. This is is not a good basketball team. I feel comfortable saying with Steph out for a few months. Do you feel like the team should consider I am reluctant to use the word. But I'm going to say it. Should they tank leader okay. Let's go back to the night steph curry is grimacing. Emma seen holding what appears to be left risk he took Syria and warriors staffers for walking around and disbelief. They just could not believe that all these different injuries came down really at the at the same time. In the last six seven games they had played eight. I walked up to Joe Lake. The warriors owner walking out of the word locker room I said Joe what do you think about the injury and he said Hey I I saw it. I'm really sad about it but I'm an optimist and I think that this team now has a chance to see what these younger younger guys can do. And I think we'll come out of this okay and I said Joe You understand that once. This injury happened a lot of people around the League are GonNA ask about taking. How do you and media? He cut me off and he said what you say and I said Joe You understand understand that people are going to start asking about taking how do you he said what were to choose. And I said tanking in mean it was really clear earlier. He was trying to send a message to anybody around in the moment and anybody wondering what the warriors are going to do moving forward if they're going to take the answer was resounding no he just doesn't believe in it in this is a proud guy who just opened a billion and a half dollar Rena that a lot of people are invested into for a lot of two years but all that being said as much as I respect the attitude the reality for where the warriors are at is that's just packaging ACA Djing. We're not gonNA take look at the roster the roster isn't good this is not a team full of NBA caliber players. Frankly frankly so the takeaway for me is. This is one of the biggest blessing in disguise that this could be for the warriors

Bold predictions for the 2019-20 fantasy NBA season

"With the season starting tonight Jay world has put together there are three bold predictions for NBA year and it starts with the different superstar in the east it does the reason why Philadelphia Seventy sixers don't have a top deal because Simmons has not arrived all the way yet so here's my prediction Ben Simmons will finish this season in the MVP conversation I've seen the jump shot this summer I've talked to his trainer Chris Johnson he assured me that this is a confidence level for Ben Simmons I think they are going to dominate the east he will be in the conversation grill can shoot the ball he got a very scary player let's go out west now everyone is looking at l. a. what are you saying the Lakers and the clippers will not win the western conference I have the rockets Utah or Denver a win the western conference low management with the clippers where you're GONNA do with Kawhi Paul George Injury to shoulder Lebron James Ad Start off strong I think Frank Vogel kind of limits they're playing time I saw it gets to the regular regular season allowed me recipe the playoffs to be clear you're talking about finishing with the number one seed in the West not necessarily not coming out finally let's go to the team that has made it to the NBA finals every year in recent memory I've been saying this people call me crazy that's fine the warriors will not make the playoffs they are the fourth Bobby Marxists tweet this out they have the fourth youngest roster in the nba the fourth youngest roster now Steph Curry is tremendous I think he'll have MVP type caliber year but still is deal obamacare to loath having him and curry on the court at the same time it makes them a defensive liability draymond green they need him the score they started the day Glen Robinson Third Marquis Chris I mean that's a very and team in the loaded west one of the big questions about them we'll be Klay Thompson how soon he can come back and how effectively he come back and look at West is so low February march that's a big thing look we brought this up earlier the disparity in power between the two conferences if you put golden state in the east they have a chance if if Klay Thompson were to come back in February they could finish with one of the top more seeds in the eastern conference in the West they will agree with you they will likely miss the Blakeway Klay Thompson we'll come back the question is will he find that stride right away and I think after we come off a tornado wild find that confidence what eventually happens they flip Diangelo Russel for the piece that ends up working better in that group next year the year like after this one they're right back they

"The warriors how now have curry Russell Thompson Draymond green all under contract going forward and Adam when you take a look at the Golden State Warriors the one thing that we kind of have to remember with this concept of a dynasty is there won't be a what if with this group we will see this and in front of us the three key players here dream on staff and clay they will be there together winning and losing so whatever happens you won't be able to say well what if they stayed together remember the Jordan bulls were pulled apart the heat will lebron in way they were pulled apart and Bosch Shaq and Kobe they were pulled apart we never got to see it actually play out with this warriors team we will be able to see this play out if you hate the warriors you didn't like their style play you didn't like the way they won championships the three that they want to this point you think that was all the rant well guess what you'll be proven right if they don't ever win again if you're someone who thought that this was a great basketball and and some of the best that we've ever seen in NBA history well they have an opportunity now in front of us were they can prove to us that they are as good as we think they are and I think that that's the main point what you said about Kevin Durant and the the the people that say while wasn't real until Kevin Durant we got there you know like they they needed another yet another star they still needed the best player arguably in the NBA to be on their team so now it's a matter of one can they stay healthy can they win enough to to get into the playoffs and get into a Western Conference finals or make it to the finals what Khloe what is Klay gonna look back when he gets healthy there's all these little Asterix that you can add to this season is going to be extremely interesting to see now that they're not the hunted anymore they can be the hunters and they can go in with this chip on the shoulder of people saying look we don't even think they're going to make the playoffs this year which is crazy that dies I think so too I think so too I know Wes is loaded by nineteen and going forward Klay Thompson Draymond green under contract for five seasons Steph curry under contract for three d'angelo Russell can be under control for for so the core for the warriors is set in place that's a pretty good core to have if you're the Golden

"You know why qui- had fifteen of his thirty in that third quarter where he played all twelve minutes. He helped fend by fifteen. I didn't even I'm quite as official stat right? Yeah. You're quite a special guy, and it was I when you pointed out the van bleep started the third quarter I looked into what happened in the third quarter. Two guys played the hole quarter van bleed who had replaced Danny green to start the second half and quite quite gave you fifteen in that quarter. It was huge moving onto Klay Thompson. He was a late scratch for three. The warriors missed him dearly, Klay, reportedly really wanted to be out there, but the training staff, ultimately made the decision not to play him hoping to rest him for game four on Friday. Steve Kerr address the decision not to play clay. Whole point was to not risk a bigger injury that would keep him out of the rest of the series. So. That was the, the decision we made and feel very comfortable with it never would have forgiven myself, if if I played him tonight and and he had gotten hurt. So you live with the decision. You make a wise decision. The wisest one you can then you live with it and you move forward. So the good thing is clay has done. Well, the last two days now, he's got another couple of days to heal. Hopefully he'll be out there Friday. See that they miss Klay more on offense defense in this one before. So you miss him on offense or defense. People probably wonder, well what's the difference in game? Number four, oh, their seasons on the line in game number four. Why Steve Kerr wouldn't play clay in why he would be more cautious with him in game number three because they could get through that their season. Wasn't on the line game. Number four at work their season. We'll be on the line, and he'll be forced into the lineup regard or clay will force himself into the lineup Claes's spectacular player. And I believe it's easy to argue both sides of it, but from a defensive standpoint, one of the biggest adjustments they made in game. Number two was they put clay on Koa in co is not healthy. He struggled a little bit as far as being efficient turning the ball over when they were double team, and he wasn't the playmaker that we had seen so defensively, those minutes immediately, went to Draymond green first quarter, I was like who's going to gar? Draymond green was guarding him tracking all over the court. So that takes away from drain Mons offense because the amount of energy, he's got to exert on the defense of member Siaka game. Number one. He went all they put dream on him. He called him up. They put dream out on on game number three. He wasn't able to do that. You need a rotation Igwe Draymond and Klay to build slowdown someone. So for me, I would just argue a huge part of the game, not the biggest part claybin missed own defense because Golden State with Steph and the way he played last night. They just need a little bit of shooting, but they need a bunch of defense. If you told Steve Kerr right before tip off. You're going to score one hundred nine points. Will you take it? How do you feel about your chances he'd said apps, they scored by the way. Clay played games one and two. This one hundred nine game. It's two hundred nine in game two scored one hundred nine in game three two not number. But it's the number that they've been stuck on in this series for good or for bad. The difference between games. One and three in game. Two is came one. The raptor scored one eighteen to their one nine game three the raptors scored one twenty three two one oh nine they needed him defensively. Yes. Of course, they would have shot better from three. If he was out there. I entered there's a butterfly effect on everything. But because Steph went supernova they, they got enough point..

"Later was saying, if you compared that warriors win to another one in their history over this dynasty run here you just go back to that game five versus the rockets because a lot of things are similar. That's the night. Kevin. Durant goes down with the injury. Well, okay. In game two of the finals. It's clay who had been playing the best. It terms shooting the ball for the warriors. They got random contributions from everywhere. Back in that game five that was sort of the looney breakout game where you were like, whoa. That was huge. That was out of nowhere in this one Quinn, cook with the three threes bogut. I mean obviously huge is three. Off the one being the tip there. And then the warriors held on for dear life really in both of those games as well the the one against the rockets in game five, and then this one in game two down stretch in. That's why specifically about Klay Thompson. They looked at the end with no Klay on the floor because they're able to take away staff. And then the other guys you know, DeMarcus as good as he is, you know, can't do that for forty minutes. Can't create a lot for forty minutes and Draymond green is good. But they need clay. And that's why I'm not really that worried about the warriors going forward and their injuries of kevon looney Andrea dollar who seemingly is fine. But it's playing Steph curry who just needs hydration and Klay Thompson, because Klay Thompson hasn't missed a playoff game in this run with the Golden State Warriors here since two thousand fifteen and he was out there, greeting all his teammates in the hallway after the game with an ice pack on his hamstring. Like if he was really injured, what he'd be chilling out there. I tend to agree. And in commenting on Aubrey as he calls, Drake. Now Drake was out there. Coming through, and some warrior staffer told them. Hey, wait, wait, wait here. Wait here. Don't go back into the locker room clay, and Durant Drake is coming and Klay comments immediately. Oh Aubrey wasn't talking tonight that bum ass. Mass. That's a real Klay Thompson comment. But I don't think he's I think he's playing is what I'm saying..

And finally last night. Klay Thompson hitting ten threes in the first half finishing with an NBA record fourteen versus the bowl in twenty seven. He didn't just not play the fourth quarter. He didn't. A big order. You know, what I'm really disappointed in you, though. A really disappointed you in your prime. You Ray Allen in cagey and your prime y'all don't think y'all could put numbers up like this in today's all the same age. All twenty eight twenty nine together. Probably so probably tan Klay last night took twenty four three pointers in twenty seven minutes. These are two guys who know how to shoot you guys never got up twenty four show. Noted after the game twenty of those. Windhorst here you're great now by one of our senior. Twenty four. Thinking about their potential future. I wonder say last night let this beat the bulls won forty nine one twenty four and it's the scores. Like, oh, they let them up easy at the end. The game wasn't actually this close. They scored ninety two points in the first half of franchise record twenty four three pointers all of those only came in three quarters clay, fifty points, as you said record, fourteen threes, is this gap. We're talking about you heard Tracy before the break say is knowing Michael stray on straight on size gap between the warriors. And the rest of the league is this is ever been braces. Money back. So last year the warriors got a little bit away from the way they enjoyed the game. They came they went to China start the preseason and they were tired, and they complained about it and kind of set the tone for the whole year. Now, they're joy is back. This is one of their weapons they've weaponized joy this road trip. They had a blast doing the Furby remix is they're shooting. All these, you know, everybody's hitting shot four days in New York when they are when they are in a bad mood. They are one of the team when they are in a good mood. They are on a completely different level. And we are now seeing the warriors playing great. And in a good mood. Look out of never seen anything. Like, this this type of run where these guys has been four straight finals, you know, one with three of the last four and then come back for fifth one fourth one and to have this type of energy and focus is still motivated so motivated, I've never seen it. Since the bulls era. Boogie cousins hasn't played yet and is already in could evect by Christmas. Boston can win the championship..

"I mean, it's pretty simple. Sam. Got it. I mean, he's not wrong. The nice thing since this wasn't actually a competitive basketball game was that even the fans inside the United Center seemed to just simply focused on clay in his quest to break the record. And because he had to come into that game pretty cold. You know, he was shooting like a fluky fourteen percent on his threes for the first couple of weeks the season pretty much. Everyone was rooting for him to rebound watch practically the entire warriors bench come out on the floor. When he hit just this one in the fourth quarter in the first quarter. This this is early in the game. It's just fifteen to five. They're all rooting for him by the second half every player on the court is clearly feeding Klay trying to help him break the record. And that includes Steph. Yeah, it was deft record Klay was trying to break. And. Yeah, it was Steph who helped him do it watch the final three. They Klay hits is the break. The record the ball goes in clay raises his arms and soda Steph. If you're looking at this freeze, you can even tell it is. Celebrating here. These guys cannot believe events going on the game. Maybe maybe they both did this right at the same time. Because of all the cool by stuff we always hear about this warriors team run around the campfire loving to support each other. Maybe it's also just because in that locker room. Everyone loves Klay Thompson. Sometimes you don't have to be the best to be the favorite. Tracy. I know I know by the way supposed to ask you about clay being a number one option, but I don't think you're over the defense in this game horrendous seriously this man four threes in the game. And I probably saw two contested shots on. I mean, he's a shooter people we know that one of the greatest shooters we've ever seen and as he's coming off of these screens you go under the screen on Klay Thompson a few times in his game. I come on. I mean, I know these guys are young. But I don't know if this coaching is not transferred to these brain or. I don't know what it is. But the defense was awful and the entire time this we're going to beside themselves skillset shooting you allow dribble. Okay. But okay. So part, partly obviously, a lot of what you're saying. Just about the way they were playing a problem. But that is part of the problem defending this warriors team can't w one you can't there's a threat everywhere. If you're thinking about one guy than the other guy shoots would you like to see clay is the only or number one option on a team? I like them in this role right here because it's like the perfect storm. You got so many other guys around him. So you can't help they got a great system. He comes off their squeeze as you can see he only takes a future. He'll means one or two dribbles nine dribble as the main pointers, although there's no double mind could probably average like twenty five points. But it'll be a different way gets at night in the night out because as option becoming off the dribble little bit more. You'll see them take a fourteen to get fifty two points as number one option. No allow harder. I would love to see it because of his shooting ability the lack of defense in this in this league him have an opportunity to have opportunities. Like this more often. I mean. I think last night could have been historic nights where he actually scored eight points. Again, I was close quickly, but he scored more per minute than Koby when Koby hit eighty eighty one. And obviously Koby had a little more latitude to say you're not taking me out of the game. Fifty two on the bullets before..

"Ever as opening the Spurs are gonna retire miniature. Nobody's number twenty March twenty eighth when they faced the cath. What do you guys? Remember most about play mono. Took the garbage scared really is the one that reinvented. The your new he was going left. See from a fans viewers perspective. It's just the bat favorite players. Just the watch amply again accepted a role that I mean, he could have wanted to be number one option, or at least a starter on another team accepted the role that he did and became a legend. Welcome to the jump. I'm Rachel Nichols. And look who's here to other legendary guys finals MVP Paul Pierce hall of Famer, Mr. Tracy McGrady. It certainly is going out. Bras, patients running out after another close loss for the Lakers last night. We will play you exactly what the man said in his own words. But first, here's the thing about Klay Thompson, he is one of the best shooters to ever play in the NBA. In fact, when you're talking about just the purity and officiency of the shots themselves. He may be the best ever. And yet not only is he not even remotely considered the best player of his era. He's not remotely considered the best player on his own team. Or the second best. He doesn't even get that Draymond thing of. No, he's not the best player. But maybe the most important instead, he's just clay, and it takes a very unusual cat to not only be okay with all those conditions but to thrive under them. Fortunately, for the warriors Claes exactly that different. And when he rained down those record fourteen three pointers against Chicago. Oh, he did it in the most Klay way possible wearing a giant yellow headband to cover on his head and quoting Jackie moon from that will Ferrell movie semi pro. Because of course, he did. But just because now headband clay has joined China clay and cut her Klay along with scaffolding clay as these stuff of legend, don't let any of that full you about how deadly this man is think about this. You know, Claes scored his fifty two points and just twenty seven minutes last night that is more points permitted than Kobe when Kobe scored his Eighty-one imagine if clay had a Kobe light green light to play the whole game or how about this one. Or no how many dribbles clay took on this fourteen three pointers. He made nine dribbles nine times. He dribbles total last week against the clippers. James harden? James harden, took nine dribbles on just a single re. Point. And he's probably the only one by the way, we see this in the NBA all the time. Except with clay. He did in fourteen three point shots. Of course, help the warriors were playing Chicago team that let's just say is not advancing the sport basketball with defensive play. Remember when Jerry Parker signed a two year forty million dollar contract with the bulls this past summer announced that NBA players don't get paid to play defense last night in the whole team agreed with him or having such an easy time down the court that in the first quarter. We were all joking has the NBA gonna call this game at halftime. And then halftime came in the score with ninety fifty. I was wondering what coach Fred Hoiberg could possibly be saying to his team in the locker room at the half. An after the game legendary Chicago sports writer Sam Smith, ask boy Burke, a similar question..

"Dot com is Kevin O'Connor K Kevin bomber aka Kevin O concert K. Kevin O climber aka Kevin O, timing. What's going on? Chris this morning. How're you of all the days for you to put out your Klay Thompson opus, which I know you did the interview several weeks ago, and so you've been working on this article for a long time, and you have to write in the beginning of the article something to the effect of. Hey, no, one expected basically by the time this article was going to be printed that quite Dobson would be shooting thirteen percent from three. But here we are. And then you kinda go on through how Klay Thompson does what he does never in your wildest dreams. Could you imagine it would have been on total full display last night? And it just so app. Pens the day the ringer posts your article about the greatness of Klay Thompson, she breaks the all time regular or three pointers gay. You're living, right. Kevin. You're living. Right. The universe works in mysterious ways curse. All right. First things first you got an opportunity to sit down with him. And you wanted to pick his brain. And I found it interesting that you included in the insight that you know, when you get to ease after practice a lot of times these guys just wanna go do their routine. The last thing they want to do is sit down with a reporter. And then you had the opportunity. I think what what you said within the article is you got the chance to talk basketball with them. And that's when he lit up. Definitely, you know, extending the hell with clay, obviously, right after I work out the last thing you wanna do is talking to the person. But like I pulled on my laptop, and we just started talking about football. And then he lit up, and it was great. It's cool. How that happened yesterday? Chris, right. Because there was talk about how you know. What's wrong with Klay Thompson shot? What's wrong? Nothing's right. He was just a little mini slump at the start of the season. That's all what did you leave out of the article pretty much mostly everything got in there? I would say there's good Steve Kerr quote that we ended up leaving. Now, just Steve base. Said how Klay is that his knowledge of the game is deeper than it's ever been right now like his understanding of the game is understanding of his teammates of angles every little thing is at the highest level. It's been right now that that was probably the number one thing that comes to mind that we left out. But for the most part, I everything really ought in there. Yeah. Kind of the sneaky thing about him, right? Because sometimes he could come off as a Lou for goofy. But everybody you talked to say the guy is super smart like he's they joke with him about being an old man because his routine is he has a newspaper like legit news. He is keeping the newspaper industry alive. Clay, Dobson by reading it every day. And he's like, you know, I remember reading somewhere that he's like elite at chess. You don't find a lot of dummies that are great at chess. But that the guy is he's super fired. He no super super smart guy. I don't think he comes off necessarily always as a guy you would think. Was Uber cerebral. But in fact, everybody that's around him says you have no idea. How smart this guy is and how much he works added and attempts to learn and that there is a method, and that's kind of what you want to chronicle. Right. There's a method to this. The reason he gets the shots. And the reason he is so good at it is because he studies at this is not just by chance or I think a lot of people take away from his greatness by saying, yeah. Well, he gets to play with Steph curry, and now obviously with Kevin Durant for sure, you know. I mean, I think with Klay everybody acknowledges how great a player is. I think with this. And I just wanted to touch on what it actually is. That makes them great, right? Like, I think ESPN stats and info tweeted out this morning second spectrum that that Klay Thompson fifty two points for only on fifty two touches and a dribble the ball only fifty six times and had the ball in his hands..

"So we've got a record setting performance, which means one thing and one thing only in the NBA I to bust out a bunch of weird bleeping second spectrum stats for you guys. But I we should probably hear from the record setter himself Klay Thompson warriors guard breaker of records where headbands sport or of a stylish new beard, by the way, Klay Thompson, finally realising like we all do at some point or another that go t is probably not the way that we should live our lives. Klay Thompson last night. Talking about when he knew this was going to be that kind of performance and on the support that he got from the rest of the warriors supporting cast what I do this for those moments to share your teammates. That's why we play basketball because it's a collective effort. And I really believe I don't know if I would be able to break these records, I have got him past just like tonight without the system I play or the team with the guys I play with because you know, they knew even before I went out second half Steph box say go get it. And it just shows you selves news is with him within him same with Katie and dream on and TJ. Everyone else does out there on the floor which on On a a fine fine me. me and give me good looks. I last year on ESPN radio and the ESPN app. So here we go. We got a prediction. Remember that other day when I told you we were going to be used the hell out of that. Bueller? Sound remember that one member where we're at well today? Your prediction be second spectrum sound, but may actually break it may die because boy, oh boy second spectrum broke the Bank on that game last night from second spectrum last night was the seventh time Klay Thompson has made eleven catching shoot field goals in a game over the last five seasons. Only Anthony Davis has more certainly worth noting Davis and Nico of chits do a lot of their scoring around the pain. The second most in the NBA the Klay Thompson is tied with in that time period from second spectrum play Thomas Klay Thompson, excuse me was extremely efficient taking just fifty two touches to score fifty two points last night fifty burger this isn't the first time. He's dropped it incredibly efficient fifty point game in the last five seasons. There have been forty nine fifty point games. Thompson is three of the four most efficient fifty point games based on points per touch and finally. This is the real kicker. This is the weather gonna love quantified shot. Quality is a metric created by second spectrum. By second spectrum force, beckoned seconds, spectrum it examines the positions and movements of players on the court to determine the quality of shot that the player took independent of shooting ability. According to this metric Klay Thompson shot quality on three pointers in the first seven games of the season versus Monday night that record breaking performance were virtually the same the shots just happened to fall this time around I tell you these guys lot of free time the second spectrum community, but you get it. This wasn't. This wasn't Kobe Bryant sixty plus point final outing in a Laker uniform where they're just feed him. Although the warriors were very cognizant of this record in the second half and the game where he scored ninety two in the first half. And we're gonna win by twenty five you can afford to feed your boy the rock a little bit. Which is what this team again gets to do because they're so laughably better than everybody else. None of this matters to them. They did the regular season win records thing that's old entire one championships. That's old entire they're going to break every record. They can while they're still together. Eventually probably starting this off season. A couple of those guys are gonna start to break the Bank. Elsewhere, and this part is going to break up. And you know, what they're gonna do on the way out. They're gonna tap dance on everyone else's graves along the way..
