"But there's really nothing special there so in the end. I it's a d- Grade for the boston. Celtics this offseason and i'm sure a lot of their fans would agree Next we've got the brooklyn nets bringing back a couple of players and you know not spencer dinwiddie obviously But blake griffin comes back on a minimum contract. James johnson gets brought in for a minimum contract. Bruce bruce brown who played some solid minutes during that playoff run got a one year. Four point seven million dollars contract and the best signing that they made certainly one of the best signings of the entire off season has to be patty mills agreeing to a two year. Twelve million dollar deal to be the backup point guard for the brooklyn nets. He's gonna bring a lot of leadership a lot of experience to this team. And he's you know. I mean championship experienced guys. I mean one for the spurs and That is a very very solid. Pick up for them and when last year you could obviously tell they had little to no depth this is going to be huge addition and of course adding james johnson blake griffin. Gives you a lot of physicality down low and on the bench. Of course so It'll be very interesting to see how the nets a do it. And of course recently it just got brought out that they also signed Kevin durant to that max contract extension which is huge man being able to keep that guy there for the for the foreseeable future is only going to do good things for the nets because that guy is one of the best players in the nba as we all know. So i'm gonna give the nets a b. plus. I think a b. pluses a good grade there because they didn't make any huge moves but of course it didn't need to. They got a huge top heavy team. It was just rounding out the roster and they did a pretty solid job of that. I would have liked to see Maybe a better center. I'm just not a fan of de'andre jordan. i know. He has great chemistry with the the superstars. But i don't know. I'm just not i'm not a fan there But but definitely getting blake griffin back. Adding james johnson. Bruce brown is back and patty mills. Huge trade Huge joan get getting free agency. Gotta give them a b. Plus next we go to the charlotte hornets now. The hornets traded devante graham to pick up eight two twenty two lottery protected. First round. Pick from the pelicans huge. Because they weren't gonna keep devante graham. He was kind of you know he had a inconsistent year last year. And obviously they're going more with terry rozier year lamelo ball. They got their backward. They're not looking to devante. Graham has proven himself at least from the year before that he wanted a big contract and he got that from the pelicans charlotte hornets. We're not going to give him that. They brought in is schmidt kind of be the backup guard A lot of veteran experienced there and then a big get is well kelly. Oubre junior being added to this to this team is well for two year. Twenty six million dollar contract. that's huge. I mean ads athleticism. Three point shooting And it's going to be a very fun team to watch in charlotte this year But just nothing really like just jumped out at me. I i like the kelly oubre signing but it just was not enough and then smith. He's not going to give much one year. Four point five million dollar contract. It's all right. So i'll give him a c plus like it wasn't bad i mean maybe a b minus but i'm leaning more towards the c plus grade. 'cause i just didn't see much from this from this off season for the hornets and i mean they're not. I guess they did. Maybe enough to get into that playoff picture. But it's still going to take a lot of improvement from lamelo ball. You need another solid season from gordon hayward and obviously pj washington needs to improve as well. So we're going to have to see what goes on with charlotte next. We got the chicago bulls. That's a big one. I was really interested in seeing what the bulls we're going to do after bringing mussa vich during the season and not working out and they end up bringing in the marta. Rose and i wanna three year eighty five million dollars signing trade. Now when i saw this. I was excited. Because i thought the marta rose ins inbetween game from the mid to to to the paint can work really world around shooters like lonzo ball levin and vucevic but then i saw what they gave up in order to bring him in and that was that he's young. Who was probably one of their best players last season. I'll go as far as to say. He was their second best. Player behind levine. And a first round pick and two second round picks and alpha amino amino. I mean that just seems like far too much for a guy that was already leaving the san antonio spurs and i mean good on san antonio man i mean to pick up all that draft capital and a solid two veterans for mortar rosen. Who you weren't gonna keep anyways That's big social that at first. Maybe it was going to be a net like neutral neutral net but now it looks more like a net negative especially since we don't know how to mortar. Rosen's gonna look with this team. Because i'm just just for me thinking about it. I thought it would be a good fit and it probably still will be and if it is. It's a net positive especially if they make the playoffs that's what they want but then they also got a lonzo ball on a sign and trade. They sign him to a four year. Eighty five million dollar contract very solid valley for a guy who improved leaps and bounds. Last year i mean the shot making the ability to play make. Obviously you can't do much in the half court he's more of that fast-break guy and then you'll spot up. But you know. I mean you got guys like the marta rose in levin to kind of handle the ball. So you need the ball in his hands all that much. And they only gave up. Thomas at iran's king garrett temple i it doesn't really matter 'cause lonzo ball's obviously going to be the starting point guard and then he got koby white and can be off the bench. Maybe play off the bench so The solid solid. Pick up there for lonzo ball. I love that move. Then you get alex caruso a do it all guard for year. Thirty seven million dollars contract. Very solid pickup bulls didn't trade daniel ties to the rockets to get that eight point. Twenty eight million dollar trade exemption from depot. So you know. At least they didn't lose them for nothing. And then bring in tony bradley. A young center who played for philadelphia last year had some solid moments for a two year. Three point eight million dollar deal. You know risk there you know you get to see what he can do and maybe he can back up. Especially since you're losing daniel thais you get a you know a center that can give you some backup minutes and maybe you can see what he turns into so all in all some good moves. Some questionable moves. But i like what they're trying to do here to try to make themselves a playoff contender there in the east. So i gotta give them at least a b. a i don't think they deserve a b. minus because they did what they had to be made moves if this would easily be an eight minus to be plus type of great here but i gotta give it a b to be minus grade and i it should because there's still a lot of questions up in the air on how these four guys of the rosen ball levin and usage will work together once we see that will know how this will turn out so be to be minus for the chicago. Bulls cleveland cavaliers. All done a sign jared allen to a five year hundred-million-dollar max extension. Isn't max actually. I don't think it's max but still regardless five hundred million dollars for a center who can certainly protect the pain a.

"Team deserves a I think this team deserves us. A midas just base offered you know The holes in their team found last year. They fill those holes. Obviously off westbrook and then you have tend might be a projected starter tendered. None maybe coming off the bed so all excited to see what seem to do but i have to give this team. Hey and is based off of the names that they signed but moved on here at maxine. We're going to be talking about the miami. He the maybe he made some efforts. Creating see here Getting or restarting dwayne deadman getting a kyle lowry signing a marquee morris signing vikto able to a one year deal. Resigning roberson reciting masters getting. Pj tucker and everything so when you look at this roster and look at who they brought in like i said deadman larry morris or depot robertson and stories and also bullard all contract extension so Start off with. I guess lowery here. I think getting lowry was a much effort on especially for the point guard. Position gordon draw drake and covered on word. Really getting it done and when i always damn he games. Considering on miami he ran. I always looked up the starting lineup before gave see what are who are would be between a kendrick nunn and or gordon driving and it would be one or the other you know. Koetter would play or Gordon drought will come in and play so it was very inconsistent on all and with larry. Now he's gonna be a for sure starter for us november fact. I don't think we still have goran otter rosser right now. But we'll see where he wants to go but overall The signing larry was big. It was really big and necessary in order for the miami have their quote unquote big. Three of Now jimmy bullard bam of bio cow bari but with other sidings to like markeith morrison. Pj tucker on those were signings. That i was very surprised about. I was surprised that. Pj cable over to miami. And i was in savings morris. To pj tucker. I heard that. Bali importers was go to to see might be offered him. But i guess we'll walk. You wanted pours. More than tucker. So that's why tucker com To miami and morris. This is kind of thing for morris where he's thirty one on a contract for one point six mil for i assume two years but with morris use gotta assume that he's going to be opposite coming off the bench being a support player for our no maybe a ban out of bio. I'll maybe he's there with a purchase. Chew a little bit with no tire. Aero baxter's victorio depot company and speaking of all. I'm very happy that we resigned over depot. I'm gonna hope and pray. That victory gets healthy with his timetable being around december for him coming back that hamstring injury. But he was a guy that i thought at miami had in that playoff game playoff series versus the milwaukee that. I thought that we weren't going to get sweep swapped but you know it happens. It is what it is and resort. Purdy came in can't take anything away from walkie completely dominated miami and But now Would kyle lowry murky. Morris ole depot pack. Pj tucker Come to miami. And then resigned. Robinson buller to new contracts. I think the i think miami's poise very poised for playoff. Run here. so. I give this team i give miami. I'll get. I'll get miami An a minus as well They resigned people in god players. The needed So we on here and talk about next team of the chicago bulls year chicago bulls made huge strides are free agency signing some much-needed player in the guard. Position with as you had lonzo ball. Lonzo ball siding that the marta rose inside a got out caruso And then you also have koby white home. To zach levine also has been there nikolayevich of amaury marcden. Dan patrick williams as well overall the chicago bulls lineup. Looks pretty deadly overall. I suspect seem to be a playoff team. Whether that's a them going through the play tournament earth them being toxic seem either way. This seems to go into the playoffs. And this is gonna be missing team to watch throughout season. I'm hopefully when you look at lonzo. Levin almond arose and hopefully those guys can really create some chemistry but the their gar- positioning in everything with lonzo. He's obviously not the guide to be a shooter more so a facilitator levin into at our guys out loud to get to their spots and month like beat set up with their teammates so is going to be interesting to see this lonzo ball levin derozen combination night in night out. Also we're petrovic market. And maybe patrick williams's makes it there at the powerful four possessor instead of market but overall the team looks pretty good and overall give this team. I'll give him a b plus in Free didn't make that big signings didn't make didn't make that many signings but made big signings ever less but the next up here talked about the next team. The new york knicks of newark knicks. Us Basically the same thing that's bowls. Lend some big names but didn't really bring a lot of people like the lakers and heated for example but when you look at Who they brought in they brought in every day from the celtics. Also broaden kemba walker from the celtics. While they reside there grows resigned. Julius randle so overall When you look at this team and you look at their data and the potential sorting line up with kemba walker forty rj barrett jewish rando. The metro rob robinson and then off.

"I think he could be awesome for a team problem. What is that. what is that. Ideal further margaret. It's a team with spacing. Like the warriors like i'd rather have a in the wagons. I know wiggins can shoot the three. But i'd rather have much right and so you put him in a team of spacing. The problem is similar to bam. They're not good enough to build the entire thing around them so he only fits in a couple places but if he fits in the right spot. I think you could be awesome for them. So once again the lakers probably does not fit but he would be a for them absolutely. So he's been one of the most consistent scorers like he's one of those. It's not sexy but very very and that's what he jams on people's heads. It's pretty sexy. I really like him. I really like that player. So i'm interested to see where he ends up. And then i'm interested to see how the cards fall at midnight tonight. Monday or tuesday at twelve. Oh one am the sixers. Rosser the way you wanted to look. Well look like what do you think no fucking idea what he wanted to theirs. And so i know we don't know but give me your idea there isn't there isn't like a player out there that i've been like kyle. Lowry seems pipedream. At this point soon be he's going to miami. Did wake up to a report. That zach levine. Would want in his next contract with the bulls. He's extension eligible eligible. He wants respect where. Let's call a spade a spade. Zach levin wants to attract and let's say that lonzo goes to the bulls for something along the lines of four to eighty million. They've got younger guys in koby white they're going to have to pay. Like zach levine and lonzo and these young guys good to be your core or maybe do you really wanna start over and like now like make lonzo the the starting guy and built around him with these young guys. I just don't think that the bulls like it's in their best interest to offer. Zach levine amac's contract. now would i. Like zach levine. On the sixers. For sure i don't know what a trade pass sign and trade package for him. Looks like but that's something Interesting thing for me would be being swapped with tobias typing typing it out really hurt. My soul like if tobias goes i'll literally wrote ride for him where he can wear a knicks jersey. Jack and i'll be right there right there with you in the garden..

"There isn't depth their position. You have a mobile quarterback who might not make the entire season. We know how valuable that position is so there needs to be a little bit of a manual adjustment. There the running backs. I guess. Or decent right yeah. Halston and black. Sheer and find day is in talks with Ceylan the born the the former five-star f- issue running back. So you know we'll see what materializes there but it's gonna be hard to replace khalil. Herbert who had some guy. Just you know the kansas transfers came onto the scene. No one was expecting that. But i think we talked about him last year through eleven weeks before herbert kind of dealt with that nagging injury late in the season. He was number two in the country and total. Epa among running backs number one in yards per rush and number one in yards after contact with five point seven in the entire country. So i i don't know what the ground games in a look like you lose an early. Nfl tackle and christian baracoa few other guys from the online transferred out. So you know for this just kind of bleak there you know if the hoagies are gonna win seven or eight games. Think the offense has to finish in that like twenty to twenty five range and offense efficiency and that's gonna be really tough to do i. Just i don't know i think joseph went. They has work cut out for him. So in defensively. You mentioned some of those questions i just. I don't know what we're going to see from this offense because burmeister just not inefficient passer. You know there's going to need to be a lot of rollouts. They're going to be a lot of needs to be a lot of play action. I think point. They needs to have his offense. Look the same whether it's runner. Pass and dig into some of his metrics. I mean just when he throws with play action not a bad quarterback one oh seven passer rating over eleven years and tenth on any other throw burmeister made last season. That didn't have play action. I mean averaged under six yards and attempt sub seventy passer rating so. This is just a thing. The season kind of boils down in depends on. How good burmeister isn't if he can stay healthy. Yeah i mean this is a team. I think going in that can have high level variants and the reason i say that not because i think they're ceiling. They can win eleven games but if they start slowly things could create are pretty quickly now. One thing virginia tech that may work to their advantage. Hopefully last year they dealt with as about as disjointed a season as any team in the country in terms of availability for players. Cova guys in guys out twenty players missing and you talk about khalil. Herbert i know each of the last couple of weeks of the regular season we were scrambling to figure out his availability because when he was out there the offense really lacked home. Run threat and you saw that kind of emerged. Credit to them for beating their rivals. Virginia to close out the regular season but no doubt what i thought was a great hire at the time in just in day hasn't played out the way i anticipated. And we'll see if he can get through twenty twenty one and save his job there in blacksburg a program that i don't think a lot of people are talking about pain although we run in different circles so you and i hold them in high regard and you tease him earlier on in boston. College there thirty to one to win the conference sixteen to one to win the atlantic division. When you look at their win total at seven it's price over minus a dollar thirty at fan duel sportsbook jeff half last year. Hey look i mean. This is a guy with a defensive background. Who came in from ohio state boston college. They were extremely one dimensional but thankfully for the eagles that one dimension was outstanding behind fill your kovacic and his leadership there. They went from a sixty eight percent run ratio in twenty nine thousand nine to running on less than half of their offensive snaps. When you look at boston. College this year pain. You talked about how they're cutting into the recruiting grounds for notre dame. What are we believe can do half li seconds. I think they're they're poised for a little bit of a break out here. I really believe that. I'm a big jeff half guy. The recruiting is ticking. Up a notch. Especially in a time where you know. You had a transition class that he had to save his first year on the job. Now all of a sudden you can start to implement some things and you mentioned boston college. They kind of changed who they were and their philosophy completely changed twenty four percent year over year increase in the past game. And i think you know half li while. He's a defensive guy comes over from ohio state so he's been around these great offense of mines and he was willing to change. Which is i think a big thing when you start to gauge coaches typically. A defensive guy comes in and it's all about his defense in what makes it look best. That wasn't the case now. I don't think they'll pass much if the run game is better. But he is a willing to go out there and aired out. 'cause he's cognizant that passing is more efficient when you dig into some of boston college's numbers offensively in kind of project ahead. I like what i see. Their return almost eighty five percent of its offensive production from last season. The receiver group is really deep. They get their two thousand nineteen receiver back as well. Koby white. Zeh flowers surefire. Nfl receiver in late. May they landed. Trae burying all american tight end via the transfer portal. And i think the hope is that in year two with a normal offseason that the o. Line gets better acclimated to the new zone blocking scheme. And i think that was a big thing on why the the line wasn't really good last year and they couldn't get a push in their ground game as they went from a completely different blocking style. So bc's going to run. You know a zone scheme. This year it was new to them so they have a full offseason implement. That obviously didn't go well. Asher finish ninety first in line yards hundred and thirteenth and opportunity rate outside the top sixteen saccharine allowed rushing success rate in explosive running was was terrible. I think the positive is that they return all five guys up front and i think four of them potentially and up on. Nfl teams next year. And so that along with what seems to be a shift in running back is going to change some things right. They want to go to a more versatile running back quicker faster back. So i think we're gonna see their explosiveness increase notch their one hundred eight last year. And then you mentioned your kovic year. Two in the system who's twenty fifth last year and totally pay quarterbacks. He has more weapons. Got a better understanding the offense. He was damned good On intermediate throws in that ten to nineteen yard range. I think just kind of glancing at the schedule. Now todd before we get to the other side of the ball if you're a c. Fan you have to love the fact that you're not going to face three of the top four projected teams in the conference. You know they evade north carolina in miami and and obviously names on the conference but they do play five. Acc games this year and from gambling perspective. This is how we look at things a game. They're already likely lose clemson..

"I'm not saying you. You trade for plan. Because he fits into your offense because ideally you tried for a star. We weren't rework your offense that he fits exactly in suitable delay sets they rome with the bigger. That's the key You'll see different senior when delicious. The shot lincoln. You know the the ability to actually be that hub the scoring of not just the play making the top And lewke lights. The troy brown junior pick up as well. He's a guy who lies at. Bongo was buried on the wizards bench again. In those delays sets. You need secondary ball handlers. Guys who can come off. Screens and ronald fence is playmaking. If someone who can't doesn't really get much shine how many minutes his playmaking very nice. Raincoats of the chicago bulls offense so just generally a while. They did a lights. The fitness the guys. They talked it again. Unique could quite easily see thais running. Those delays saxon. Adding off to. Kobe was initially move to a soul. Sick mom robot just full of the place they tell it made sense for the system. Donovan strana run. Yeah i totally agree with that. And i think the biggest thing for me to In looking at what chicago did does it. Move them into being entitled contender hill. But i don't. I don't really care about that. And i think it's i think that's what most frustrated me about the trade deadline because that was the immediate referendum. Like oh will. They traded for of cool. But that doesn't make them title. Contender out agree with you to joe. Like i mean isn't he's probably not quite as valuable. As zach levine. Kazak latinas having like a ridiculous ridiculous shotmaking year As become one of the best on ball off scores in the league but has been like a legit top thirty player this year probably last year to maybe even the year before then he's just been fantastic offensively and i think he's a little bit better defensively than people. Give him credit for this because if you put them in the right he's good enough at not failing and being in the right position he's not vertical threat to really protect the rim. That much But i think. I mean he's been part of some solid defenses in in orlando and he was the starting five there so you. Can you can picture it. Working out And he's definitely improved quite a bit over the last years as well But again my main point like. I think it's just important that that chicago is focusing on being good because to me either rosser over the last year or so felt very much between like a push poll of like trying to be competitive now and trying to develop young guys and it's very very difficult as anybody who's pacers phanor follows the pacers. That's not an easy thing to both. Develop your young guys and be a win now. Team and chicago was floundering at doing that. Frank as we saw how things have been handled with lowery markkanen window carter and even to an extent. Koby white I think the fact that they're now signifying. Hey we have zach levine. Having a career. He's twenty five k. Headed into his prime. We're going to at least give this a chance to build around and see what you can do because if you keep playing guys who aren't yet there and ready to be win now players. You're both stunning their development and holding back levin so. I liked that they went on..

"Welcome to gen z. Hoops today would join our central division. Expert logan knock traub Breakdown the past week of nba action. For the bucks bulls cavs pacers and pistons logan. Last week you mentioned how the bucks looking more like themselves. Over the past few weeks they continued to perform. Well yeah the bucks finished this week with a four one record and were just two points. Shy of perfect five. Oh record after losing to the sons one twenty five to one twenty four on wednesday night brin forbes had an impressive performance off the bench for the bucks on saturday night after dropping. Eighteen points on just six shots which were all from three in. He did not miss a single one so six for six from three and he only played eighteen minutes. This is the type of benchtop that will give the bucks a in the postseason. They need to be confident because there are a great team with a plethora of great players in addition to that great performance. Chris middleton also posted a career high twelve assists on monday night and had an year. Triple double with twenty nine points. Eight rebounds and twelve assists lapsley. Yarmuth had a crazy gain in their loss to the sons with a season. High forty seven points interesting stuff over there with the bugs and then the bulls capped off their week with a bang nights ago. How has this week been for them. The bulls finished this week with a two and two record like you mentioned the bulls had a tremendous last night with levin scoring a season high forty six. in addition that being hit nine threes. All koby white finished with eight. This makes them the first pair of teammates ever to hit eight threes in a game. Each in addition the bulls twenty five total threes marks a new franchise record next up. Patrick williams he is going to be my main talk. Kim pointing innoc- became the youngest player in franchise history to score twenty points in a game. He was nineteen years and one hundred sixty three days old on friday night when he finished with exactly twenty against the magic. The pacers didn't look that good this week log in. And do you see any hope for a turnaround. Yeah john the pacers posted in owen. Three record this week poor shooting combined with the whole the depot left is clearly affecting this otherwise sound team despite the pacers lack of depth. I i do think that they have a couple of solid guys off the bench one. Such guy is tj mcconnell. I bring mcconnell up because he had a stellar week. But maybe you wouldn't guess it just based off the box score on friday. He had fifteen assists off the bench. His forty one points assisted on an eleven threes assisted on that game are each the most by a player off the bench in the last twenty. Five seasons mcconnell is is a pretty obscure player. But i am telling you now. Put him on your radar. This dude is averaging six point seven assists off the bench for the pacers in that. Six point seven is good enough for eleventh in the entire league so they can get some of those bench guys going and hopefully as the birds return will kind of help them spark something in in really get back into that play. Opposition we from the pistons. They made a couple of headlines this weekend. What what's going on there. Yeah the most notable headline for the pistons this week was the derek rose trade. They shipped him back to new york for dennis smith. Junior and a twenty twenty one second round draft pick the charlotte hornets while this may not be the return that many pistons fans had been hoping for. I'm intrigued by their decision to accept that package. What i've read. I've gotten a sense that the pistons do. This is a reclamation project similar to josh jackson. If you can recall. Dennis smith junior came out of. Nc state with a highly touted. Forty inch vertical. Jump he was a promising young player to the extent that he was a key. Piece in bringing kristaps porzingis to the maps on. He may not look like an appealing package right now. This is a young player. Who's absolutely brimming with potential. I used to be a big fan of his when he first came into the league. And i really hope he can recover some of that dazzle he used to have. It was a fun guy to watch for sure. Lastly in terms of their game play this week the pistons managed a one two record with a surprising win over the nets. Finally wrapping things up. What's been sitting out in cleveland. So far yeah. Cleveland had a rough week. They finished four with a tough schedule. Including milwaukee twice. Phoenix and denver darius garland ditty clips a noteworthy milestone on monday night becoming the fourth youngest cavs player to reach one thousand points. I wasn't able to find the three players above him. But i think we all have a good idea of who's up there. I know for a fact that lebron is above. Him and i would also guess cairo as well. So i'll fourth may not seem that incredible. At first glance you got to take into account some of the guys that he has his competition for a position like that so that definitely puts them up with some big names. Darius garland has also been the biggest guy for the cavs recently. I'm going to keep this conversation on him. Because of that in his last eight games he's averaged around eighteen and a half points per game around five and a half assists per game and keep in mind just turned twenty one. This is a guy with a bright future. So keep your eyes on..
UNC to host Virginia Tech for basketball match-up
"Monday, seven o'clock. It's North Carolina. Virginia Tech Virginia handled. Virginia Tech Virginia Tech right leaving his yes. Yeah. And I'm gonna pick for junior tech. I think ever Ginny attack. This is an interesting game because it's at North Carolina. Correct that yeah. Yeah. I wanna like North Carolina and the reason because I think eventually light bulbs going on. Here's my concern about North Carolina North Carolina have anyone who makes a play for someone else. Now think about that Kobe easier for anyone Koby white still learning the play that position. He's probably Kenny Williams is he make the game easier for anyone. And like the one thing about Virginia Tech is Virginia Tech those guys make plays for each other. Are they paying touches on a bounce? And they get the ball move defense transitional important, obviously have blacks, you get some foul trouble. They're in trouble. Get what I'm going to switch up. I'm gonna go with. Yup. Know. Take on the road at center. When you went everywhere. I mean, that's you have sterling record not exactly, but I wanna Dino. So you're going Virginia Tech on Monday night. We don't I'm gonna go North Carolina at home. That's easy way out. I take that often. People can't call me a hater. If you don't pick someone steam that means you didn't pick the team you pick someone semi didn't pick him. You know, you become. Hey, you're hater no matter who you pick because somebody's going to have a loss. Or if someone say something about a team that you've watched eight thousand hours of film, and it's not what a fan base wants to hear. You know? Hey hater for me. I'm going to say I like both those teams, but I'm going to go the home team, North Carolina. It's the easiest way out possible. Just felt basically you've just built a cushion to land. That's exactly what I
