Is Zion Living Up to the Hype for the Pelicans?
"Were in Dallas for the pelicans overtime loss to the Mavericks. Second night of a back to back for New Orleans obviously but we didn't see the Zion. We've sort of been spoiled by over the last month. So what did you get from Zion? On Wednesday night. I saw someone who had to go through a little bit of adversity. There's two different things working against him in that Dallas Game One. It was the first time he played on a back to back. You didn't see his legs under him. Early actually play but gets the block on Williamson Williamson. Took his time getting up court. You may be subbing out of the ball game here. He is drew and Lonzo Ball. We're GONNA come on up to him. Hey man you you're right you you tired. Are you going to play? You GotTa pick one. The other thing. Going against him was Dallas they started Maxi Kluber alongside of kristaps porzingis specifically for Zion Williamson two. That might have been forcing a psychotic burst that is just perfectly played deep that still by Dallas Cleveland's doing A. They went to the formula. That's been working. Which is the. We're GONNA get the tallest guy we have can defend him to do it. And then have another seven footer. Awesome plus footer at the Rim Ryan got blocked inside again. It's not possible in less. Cleber is being this physical and allowing time for kristaps ticket over there. Lieber six ten obviously porzingas seven three. Those have been the only really match ups that have given him problems when they played the box. Janas guarded him and then you have the Lopez twins behind him. Protecting the RIM defers Lakers game. Anthony Davis guarded him. And you had jovial and Dwight rim so that combination kind of went against his favor so walk me through a little bit of the process on the back to back portion of it because this is obviously part of the Adjustment For Zion. So where do you find the line? If you're the PELICANS in trying to get him experienced doing things like back to backs that he'll be asked to throughout his career and then also sort of adjusting him since he is still getting fresh on the court after an injury yeah so initially David Griffin the PELICANS executive vice president of basketball operations who should have a shorter title. It's a mouthful say every time I don't know I mean if you're going to have a title let's go big with it like if I'm going to have a business card the whole front of it's going to be my title and the backs. Just going to say fits. There's not not my first name. Just I'm pretty sure that's what his business card says. I haven't seen one but I'm pretty sure that's it has to read like that initially As I was coming back from the injury. Grif said he wasn't there. Were probably going to take it easy on back to backs. Now the good thing that kind of worked into their favor there was January. Twenty second was when he made his debut since then the Tuesday Wednesday back to back that they just had was the first time they had a back to back so they got to let him get games under his belt. He mentioned to his own Tuesday. You know I have to do the recovery if I want to perform the way that I'm capable of performing as you try to push for or is this your mutual agreement Little bit of both but I need a push for myself because I gotTa do the recovery of I want to be able to perform. We do every night with that. Being said coming off the knee injury there were reports that he was learning how to walk differently. How to run differently? I mean when they're watching him and they're monitoring and what are they looking for his indicators of his health very funny to me because I think George Sodano said that I think on ESPN broadcast and it just kind of blew up. He's learning how to walk and anybody who's been through physical therapy at any point that I for any sort of knee. Injuries foot injury. Whatever it is can tell you. They will relearn how to walk in physical therapy. The learning how to walk and run differently was more about little things in his gate that they wanted to fix. The biggest thing that they really wanted to correct at that time was how he landed when you go back and watch how he landed at. Duke with these huge one handed slam traffic. He's landing on one foot one of the big things you see. Now when he goes up for a dunk whether it's an alley whether he's just throwing it down to hands. He tries to land on two feet as much as possible. Zeile yeah that the to hand flush and a great entry fee for Lonzo Ball over Kunst buck to finish that would KUPA gotta be thinking. What in the world so. It's little things that maybe you don't know at nineteen years old that the Pelicans are trying to instill in him so they can take a little bit of stress off of his knees. The biggest thing you just said is nineteen if you listen to Zion. He'll make sure he tells you. He's nineteen in just about every other interview. I feel like I mean but doesn't right like we are so busy trying to make him either the savior of a lead. That doesn't need to be saved or the reason that we're over. Hyping somebody to the point that people ridicule how much we talk about it but you look at it at some point. Say this is a nineteen year old kid. We're talking about that is absolutely crushing in a limited sample size. So let's turn the tone positive here for a second you're looking at a nineteen year old kid. What he's doing is unprecedented right. It's absolutely unprecedented. Feel like every other night we were finding ways to start a sentence with Zion Williamson. Doing something and we ended it with Michael Jordan or Shaquille O'Neill or Tim Duncan or wilt. Chamberlain the goes on and on and on. And you're like that doesn't make sense.

"kristaps porzingis" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"Kristaps Porzingis now, obviously, we talked about a hypothetical trade that Anthony Davis wants earlier right now update you on to still zero zero. So you might as well still rock with us here an MBA radio. But if you notice this Chris dots actually went through, folks. And it was a big deal. The Knicks received Dennis Smith junior d Andre Jordan Wesley Matthews in two future. First round draft picks from the Mavs and the deal. Now, Courtney Lee Tim Hardaway junior and Trey Burke are headed to Dallas with prisoners. And it looks like it's moved to sort of really free up some cap space for the next now the. Interesting part here is that Kristaps Porzingis did not just get traded and go away he has been posting on social media. Like, it's sort of like, hey, you're good. Now, why do you need to keep telling your well? Apparently he believes that quote, the city deserves better than that. I guess he's talking about all the drama with the Knicks. And it's opening I've seen those gifts like people smiling and burning houses like, oh my God, what's happening. And he also followed that up with my suggestion for Knicks fans is to stay woke, then he piece which is very international type of Instagram story. He's also been posting love to look adagios like kit, wait to play with you. I think there's even a picture of like prisoners and Luca on his back like a cartoon out there. Like, it's just it just keeps getting better and better. So at this point, Bobby. I mean, this is fun because I think everyone's trying to get in the mindset of the Knicks front office. Because clearly it looks like they're betting on free agency by signing two max players that summer. Yes. And no the no part where they had a week to make decision on. Pour zing. Purpose to either trade them by the deadline or bring him, you know, pay him a lot of money hundred and fifty eight million dollars. I know he had had threatened to sign that four point four million dollar qualifying offer which would be unprecedent based on how much he would potentially have to give up. There was obviously a lack of communication or trust between both sides and when porzingas in the front office met on Thursday that was reiterated again. So now, you have the decision do you let the deadline passed and maybe use the next four months to patch that up or you go out and make a move in trade them, and they did now the interest. The other part is that you break the trade down into multiple layers. You you got Dennis Smith junior and two first round picks for Porzingis. And then the other part is you created this seventy million dollars in cap space in that part. We won't know until this summer. Do they have to get at least one of these players? Yes, they do. They can't go over to their. They're confident the only way they would do this as if they were confident like, I know we're going to get somebody at first I thought they had somebody locked up. I was my feeling but just talking with people around league. This was about more about the future. And we'll see how they can if they spin it this summer if they miss out on two players. But no, I don't think they are confident that they have one player. Wrapped up here. The the hard part will be what happens if you if you miss out in the summer of two thousand twenty is not very good free agent class. Draymond green is basically your best free agent out there. There is a huge drop off. So I say that you got rid of your franchise level player who was injured for two first round picks Dennis Smith junior. And and hope that's what that's what it is. Yeah. Right now Ryan, are you hopeful as Bobby says that this is gonna be win win for both the Knicks and for prisoners? We don't know yet. Because if you don't get Kevin Durant in New York all heck is going to break loose. All right. That's about to be a storm over there. Like, and to me that's telling you that we are confident. We are getting Durant or we're just gonna hold over into keep doing, you know, allow the Lakers and do one year deals on your deals with guys and not commit to anybody long-term and see what we can do out the draft and move forward from there. But it just tells me that you're all in, and you know, what everything that I've heard about my my sources say is about eighty percent that Kevin Durant will be Nick. That is going to be a real interesting situation. Obviously, you know, you can't say that so early in the season you're going to have to see how the how Golden State winds up and how their season finishes and kind of his unfinished business of winning championships has done and if he's really ready to pursue. His own career having his own team or his own squad. And if he can get another star obviously to come along with him. It would have to be like a somewhat of a package deal. But you know. You know, it's it's a win win from the sense of, you know, New York is going to take their time. But I'll tell you one thing from Dallas standpoint, I wonder how you guys feel about this. I played for Mark Cuban, and what Mark Cuban wants for the most part he gets. And he doesn't care if you are old you're ready to retire. He's going to get you it hold onto you. If it's a DR Jay Jordan has slipped through his hands one time if it's Devin Harris who played well, it was traded for Jason Kidd. I was even one of the I the apple in Mark Cuban's. I would I was traded to Dallas and came over to me quite Kelly. Is that you know, right? I did this trade for you, it, I I was I was I was just the guy was I was so thankful, but you you gotta know guys. You guys felt as he had his Iowa porzingus and probably from the day. This kid was drafted. He was he was blowing up the Knicks saying I'll do anything I can to get them. Yeah. I'm sorry. I mean, I think that's probably why you saw the deal come about so quickly. I mean, it was reported at noon that they met and he'd asked somewhat quote unquote to be moved. And in three hours later, he was traded. And I think regarding porzingas I think we forget how good he is. And then that's the common. That's what happens when we saw it with quite Leonard when he was out for a year, and then quiet comes back. Wow. This guy's really good. He's a top five player porzingas is in a top five player. But he's certainly a top twenty player when he's healthy. And because he hasn't played in a while. While we I think we just kind of forget that he is good man him. And and and plus they they've struck out on free agency. Let's go back to cap space. Like just because you have it doesn't guarantee to go out and get one of these guys. There's a tweet out there that was it your is that said cap spaces. I was like, you know, what that's a good thing. Because it gives you confidence. Right. But it's not a reality. Now. I think and Ryan you talked about it everyone thinks that Kevin Durant likely to want to be a Nick because if he's going to you know, succeed some rails. Why not we don't know what? Kevin Durant wants to do. We don't know what. Kawhi Leonard wants to do boogie, obviously has a different trajectory as a part of the warriors, you know, based on what he's making this year versus what could potentially make later. But there's a lot of ambiguity. So okay before we go Bobbi. Do you think that this? Knicks trade was smart. Or would you say not buying it yet? I'm buying it. Because I think that where I mean if Kristaps had another year left on his contract, I wouldn't be buying. But I think there was I think this marriage was broken up that it had dissolved. And there was no way going back for either side. Yeah, it's gonna be really interesting. I'm really rooting for the Knicks though, because they need some kind of positive you now coming up next our own, Ian Begley, he's going to drop some info. You're listening to MBA insiders on ESPN radio. And the ESPN app. Stay with us. Our Super Bowl coverage. It's gotta be. Told the Nixon was unhappy with the direction the franchise was going, which is straight down has now created seventy one million dollars cap space. He's the.

I in twenty twenty three those of the years that they're likely to be conveyed Charkes your Mavericks fan. Some lead us to you. Where do we start with this crazy trade? I don't even know like my brain is going and like a million different. I'll say this like so behind the curtains couple of days ago, we've been talking like well. Guess the Mavs ago after like, I don't know Gordon drug the summer, and I guess little exciting now charges, basically, like I'm completely resigned to the fact that the Mavs are probably going to end up with Gordon jogging and maxing out boogie, and I was just like wait what Julius Randle type like something like this completely lateral. Like, totally Mavericks type instead of boogie or Julius Randle. Now, we get the fantasize about how Kristaps poisoning and Luca Danni, which will play together. Did you see Carlisle's quote about that? He's like, well, it's basically like if Steve Nash and Dirk were six foot seven seven foot three just like, oh my God. I think that kinda sums it up for me. Right. Like Luca is like a jumbo-size Steve Nash in Porzingis. You know, he was compared to fair or not pre-draft. We have seen the flashes of that over his first couple of seasons. I think the fit could be perfect sharks. I think what I'm most excited about with like Luca and KP then I was looking back. At capeeze rosters in New York. Wow. Wow, ugly. And I was like well who was the best point geyser played with. And then it was like the ghost of Jose cholera. I mean, pre resurrection. Derrick rose, Trey Burke, four point. Oh, it's really pretty brutal. Dan, Devine shouted out Jarrett, Jack. But look. Yeah. Ranchera Jack the point is. That's terrible. Yeah..

But we're happy with what we were able to get return for this this deal. And again, we're getting a really good young player. Dennis smith. Yeah. And I just reiterate that with Scott, you, we don't we we we feel like we did the right thing. When you when you're trying to think about how you want to build your team for the long term. You don't want commit a mass player to a player who clearly. That'll be a disservice to organization and disservice to our fans that of course, was mills preceded by New York GM, Scott Perry. Moving young talent for cap space storage safely. Not the greatest idea Bleacher reports Howard Beck earlier on the Wilkin show to have him here from day one to claim him as their own. They haven't had a homegrown star in forever, and you know to have that taken away. I by the ACLU via trade, I think is really tougher. Knicks fans, regardless of what the trade was made for long term. And clearly this is a among other things to cap clearing exercise. But you know, when you talk about what this means from the Knicks side of it or the Knicks do well in this deal. You have to consider that they basically just use Porzingis and the promise of porzingus, and what he may become now in Dallas as the incentive to take on bad contracts. Like, he was he was the the the basically the cost of getting rid of Tim Hardaway junior and Courtney Lee. Lee and all these contracts to clear camp room. That's not usually what you wanna do with a young budding star in the NBA. So that that's a pretty bad bit of collateral damage and just say nothing again of what it does to your fan base. Yeah.

They're looking to get a long term deal done before he hits that open market. But there are questions on porzingas right at least to some Dan dockage ESPN college basketball analyst on the will Cain show. Would he's been told by some in NBA circles. Here's a perfect example. Porzingis of highlights. And media guys being a guy that guy's inside the NBA China, at least the ones that. I know tell me that you know, what you can have them. We're trying to win here. Not get a highlight from a seven foot three guys. And it was easy to see. Because the I say it all they do. Sorry. They do. Yeah.

Every little piece of information that you need is christoph- leaves the Knicks for the Mavericks, and you know, there's been a lot of conversations Sarah about what all this means. And we've talked over the course of the night about a little bit about the future for the Mavs. But also a lot about the the Knicks, and I don't wanna be the bear bad news here. But you kinda gotta be like we're just looking at this. Honestly, there's no nicks hate from either of us at this point. I mean, I think it's fair to say, we're we're sort of in the middle on that. Like, we have no no dog in that fight. My. I'm just trying to be real. And from a real standpoint. I don't understand why anybody thinks that suddenly Durant is going to just because they're clearing money for Durant. That's like saying I'm going to go buy new suit. So that when I go to the bar, I can pick up a supermodel that I can do that all day long. When I go to the park, guess what? I'm still not picking up a supermodel. Yeah. Pe- people get really frustrated with facts. And unfortunately, the facts are. That the Knicks have struggled to get stars to keep stars and to compete as a at Gibril Wilson just pointed out, it's quite an accomplishment for an NBA team to have more Heisman winners than championships in the twenty first century that is a fact sane. That is a true. Fact, look it up people. In fact, I think there's a story right now on ESPN about Charlie ward. Who is an drove me winter and was on the Knicks. They've got more Heisman Trophy winners. Than than they've got actual competitive seasons of late at and listen, I don't I don't have anything against the Knicks either. I guess to me coming from Chicago where we are completely irrelevant and trust me fits this has been a massive topic of conversation in Chicago for years. Why would a market like Chicago and a storied franchise like the bulls who had the most incredible run in the nineties be of zero interest in big name free agents is at the Jordan hangover, right? They don't want to be in the shadow of a great like, Jordan. Is it ownership issues? People didn't like the way that Reinsdorf dealt with Jordan in the end of his career or they think that they're cheap where they don't like the way that they treat the current players. What is it about Chicago? We have not yet completely figured it out. But what I do know is that we're irrelevant..

"Insurance at sarahspain and Jason Fitz coming up we've talked a lot about the next. But how about the Mavs side of this deal? Sun is setting on Dirks career and Mark Cuban in that team looking to figure out who's going to help the team rise next. We'll talk about it Spain. Infants ESPN radio had to record around the horn twice. I we hear that Kristaps Porzingis. And the Knicks are worried about what what their future is together. Kristaps worried about the dysfunction and the tanking and now just an hour or so after that the deal is done Knicks send Kristaps Trey Burke, Cornelie, Tim Hardaway junior to the Mavs and get back essentially Dennis Smith junior and then two players in Wesley Matthews and the under Jordan that are going to be buyouts with expiring big contracts. So they can clear space for for presumably big name free agents at the Knicks believe that they will get we'll get into that part of it in a little bit. It's benefits on ESPN radio the espionage up and Sirius XM channel eighty Sarah Spain and Jason Fitz, but let's talk a little bit about the Mavericks side of this. They hope to sign him to a long term deal. He'll be a restricted free agent this summer, and they hope that he'll return from this ACL injury as great as he was at his peak. They're also sending Dennis Smith junior who was two thousand seventeen lottery pick who. Had some issues with with Carlisle and wasn't necessarily happy with his role primarily playing off the ball as look Donncha has emerged as the real playmaker there. So they get rid of a guy is not all that happy. But was a lottery pick and could be good for the next and acquire a massive incredible European duo now in Luca Donncha and Kristaps Porzingis as they say about Dirk Nowitzki, not too bad fits, and I think it's the versatility. That means so much in what the guys are capable of doing. And I think you can't you can't under sell the value or oversell of the value. I should say of what Luca Danni, which means right now. I mean, Luca is everything that we thought he would be coming into his rookie season and more and not only does Luca right now look like to clearly the best of the draft. I think some of us expected that he looks like he's clearly set to be a superstar in the NBA. So you're taking a guy in Chris tops. The obviously the Mavericks are going to have to be comfortable with with feeling like they can give him through a rehab process. But you're taking a guy in Kristoff was a nightmare match. When he's healthy. And you're putting him with Luca a you're you're allowing yourself to really put two of the P keys key pieces together when you think about what they always say like it takes three any three megastars sort of win the Mavericks, essentially giving themselves the opportunity to have two of those three pieces right now, and that feels like something and also let's remember porzingas is young me. You're giving yourself the opportunity to build for the next foreseeable future this way and Taoist, by the way, just made themselves relevant overnight again in the conversation. No matter what happens moving forward. Absolutely. There are some questions, of course, about whether this will wanna stay and their questions about him recovering from injury. Bobby marks ESPN NBA front office insider was on sports with internet Collins and talked about the Mavs saying we don't really want cap space when we can have a player like porzingas they've got to have a good comfort level that they are going to be able to sign him long-term. There is a possibility that he could sign the one year four point five million dollars qualifying offer. But that is a big gamble for player. Coming. Coming off an injury there. He's eligible for five years one hundred fifty eight million dollar max contract. They also because they had cap space. They sacrifice that they took bacter- Hardaway junior and Courtney Lee two players that have contracts that go beyond this year. But it's all about crisp Kristaps Porzingis in Dallas to pair up with Luca Danni. And by the way, also sending to future first round picks to New York in the deal. Dallas does not have the rights to their own first round or currently they're protected. First Rhonda was sent to the hawks as part of that draft night trade to get down shit. So those are future picks..

Where are we going where we headed?

Knicks are expected to commence discussions on moving him ahead of next. Thursday's deadline then the next week. The nets the clippers the heat the Spurs the rafters all among teams expected to pursue Porzingis. Then the next trade. Now the next week. Let's try that again because I guess he wrote that the Knicks are getting ready to trade. Kristaps Porzingis to the Knicks admitted happens even wolves makes mistakes Witter. So we deletes that let's try this again had nowhere. Dallas is finalizing a deal to land. Kristaps porzingis. The next one New York is agreed with Dallas auto trade. That includes Kristaps Porzingis Courtney Lee, Tim Hardaway junior for Wes Matthews. Dennis Smith junior the entree Jordan players in agents are being notified a particular deal may include more draft assets. This is all happening is I'm on the air tried to do a football show. And I gotta tell you listen, you get to my age Tiki, right? All the guys that I grew up rooting for retired. I know I don't have any sentimentality with sport with players anymore.

"Kristaps Porzingis. You almost forget about him because he's been gone for so long. And look he's got a lot to prove when he does come back healthy. Can he be productive? Kenny be consistent and productive only an extended period of time isn't shown that yet. But you looking at the players develop would Knox has shown some signs and moody has been good. And who knows if he's going to be your? But at least the fact that fizz they'll coach these guys and get the most at a certain players now you love to see Neil Akina. And you'll see look there's specific guys all around that you want to see develop and who's going to be a peace next year. I mean, you know, tree is going to be here. Datsun what's his deal can the Knicks clear enough of that money this year to set up for the big off season? Maybe Kevin Durant. I mean, there are plenty of big names out there co why kyri Butler, you know, the list baller in attendance at the garden last night to watch Duke, take on Texas tax. So there are the big names out there. They're they're going to have a high draft pick their building. And developing may have the right hierarchy in place. It has been eighteen years of ineptitude. And I think it is time for it to finally end to where we can be doing shows about the New York Knicks again on a regular basis caring about each night regular season looking onto the postseason that is a I mean that is something that has been non existent for almost two decades. We are almost there. I gave you a tunnel reason. Then if you could ever dream about having Zion Williamson. Maybe an RJ Barrett. Adding that to a Kevin Durant potentially. It goes from zero to one hundred. Real quick. Where the Knicks go from irrelevancy, essentially, a New York City, which is hard to believe. To being the talk of the town again. And I think that's the one thing that I was thinking about the eighteen years of an aptitude finally. And you've you've thought you thought in years past the getting mellow look they saw. Gallon. He's a nice player, Raymond films. Having a good year. And maybe Mike dantonio can lead the way even though doesn't coach any defense you fought at times over the years. That they were about to turn the corner. But to me, I've never felt it the way that I do now. And see. That the end is near the end of the ineptitude is coming. They are finally in good shape with proper structure in place and enough to look forward to even with all the walls. And I'm not a big believer in tanking. I hate the idea of taking in sports. But in this case, it's great for the Knicks play. Well, have some of the players play wall. Get knocked to the bellboy Neil Akita develop trying to turn some some of these players into useful players moving forward. And you lose the games who's the game. He's been doing a great job of doing it. I get that. It's frustrating. I get you wanna see wins. But obviously right now it's about putting yourself in a position to succeed next year. And by doing that the best way to do that is by losing not going to lose on purpose. But it's not gonna hurt. But think about an expanse. This one's for real. This is for real. I mean, I started in WFAN as an intern in two thousand three we actually used to air the Knicks games. And I remember, you know, run on the board and stuff like that for those games. And even then that was the beginning. Of the guys like Frank Williams, and Mike Sweeney that was the hard to fathom period. We would just coming off that great run in the nineties. They lost in the first I knew it was a problem when they lost in the first round of the two thousand two thousand one. Eastern Conference playoffs to the raptors. It was Vince Carter and Tracy McGrady. I remember being one of the games. I forget which game specifically that year. But the Knicks lost to the raptors barely basically an expansion team. Still in the first round of the NBA playoffs. I mean that was unheard of. And really it's been downhill since then so back then. It was just starting here. We are fifteen years later going on sixteen years later, you're talking about total eighteen years one playoff series win. I think it's finally about to come to an end, I really believe that deep inside. Again, you wanna get pumped about John you can do that. And we are your. I mean, you've gotta be excited about the guys an athletic freak. And it's not like the next don't have a chance. I know you may not think it's realistic. You may not want to believe that it's possible. It sounds nice. But is it realistic? Yet is a matter of fact, it could happen. They're close to that makes a one of the worst teams in the league record was right now. I mean, they could end up with the number one pick. And even if they don't get him. It's not all about him. You know, we mentioned RJ Barrett, and there will be others. But they're going to have a top pick. To add to potentially a top free agent and even Durant. There's something about that whole situation where anima one of these fools who fall the Brown would ever come here. I was not buying that for one second. So I'm not a hopeful blind sucker of a Nick fan. I never believed. Lebron James is coming here. I do believe that there's a good chance to rank comes here. Eighteen years of an aptitude could potentially in one off season. And it'd be maybe not just one off season obviously last off season bringing in fizzed ill cleaning, everything up. They're building the foundation going through this season taking the lumps developing some of the players that be impactful you hope next year. But in the off season next off season on this upcoming off season. It could change quickly top pick top free agent. Porzingas back healthy already the pieces that they have there. You can legitimately be talking about an NBA finals contender. So I think that. Meaningful. Mix basketball is on the horizon. It is not too far away giddy about the future of the New York. Knicks. Diane k D Barrett. Whatever the case may be things are looking. Bright. Well, at least I feel like they're about to be looking bright for the New York. Knicks franchise for the first time in forever. Eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six. And then when you when that does happen talking Knicks will not be an aberration. It is going to become a regular thing. We'll do plenty on we sixteen in the NFL jets and giants obviously go around the league plenty of baseball to do. Daniel Murphy off the board. I don't understand why the Yankees basically showed no interest. Now, basically, they didn't show any interest in Murphy. And I don't understand why the Mets continued to do the same thing even with a different salesman. There's time, but it's the same thing, and people might be falling for it doesn't make any sense to me. Eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six Sal licata.
