"Studios for our number to host him. It drew tell Matt Shoemaker Cory Gray and Percy Gibson all in studio right now, 809 23935 is the phone number. Leave a comment on our Facebook page dialed in Detroit. Let's start talking about this Detroit Pistons Ball club. We talked up to Percy interview style for the first hour. Now Percy wants to stick around and types of Detroit sports. Cory's here as well. Corey called in the show. So I want some Lions draft about two weeks ago, so we'll get into everything here for you, folks. 893 9385. That's the phone. Pistons playoff Poor starting with you Drew since last time we talked about the Pistons What has surprised you And what has Ah, unimpressed you as well the same time with this ball club, you know, not much has surprised me. They went into that West Coast trip and they beat Phoenix, which I expected, and then they went on to lose the next three games on the road against Portland on the road against Golden State. And on the road against Denver. Those are games that I never would have them winning. But, you know, disappointed me was that first half against the Denver Nuggets. I believe they put up. I don't know, but they were down. 27 shot 9% pretty much 14%. I think actually was, but they were down. 27 at one point And that that's the only part of the trip that really disappointed me because they just didn't show up for a whole half when it's this time of year and you have to show up no matter what s O that kind of disappointed me, but nothing really shocked me. They came back. Well rested and they beat the magic, which they needed to dio. But yet nothing shocking. So far way were the game was to you the atmosphere like in the NLCS. To me. It was great. Yeah, I guess the Orlando magic they they didn't quite sell it out. But I think they had 18,000 in the building. And they were allowed. It was AH, it started to feel like a playoff game. You can't call that a playoff game because there's nothing quite like an actual meaningful playoff game. But People actually showed up and they were into the game. So hopefully as we move down to the home stretch that continues, and this team feeds off of that, and they really do like that's Other teams want to admit it or not, They care that people are coming into the building. So hopefully the fans continue to go through the gate yet to me what surprised me and and what unimpressed me was, of course, that West Coast trip Even against the Golden State Warriors. They came all the way back. They were down by 25. They came back. They made it a ball game. That really impressed me coming down the stretch. They still came up short, but against the Golden State Warriors Ball club. We all know how talented that team is. I liked what I saw in that fight. Then you come up against against Brooklyn, Denver and you just took a dump. And that can't happen down the playoff stretch because you have these games Where you win. You beat Brooklyn. You beat Miami beat Orlando. And you have to take at least one or two on that westroads trip. You have to take one or two of those ballgames, and I didn't see the fight that I wanted to see in that in that Detroit Pistons vocal, especially in the playoffs stretch. I think the gonna have to finish strong to get that I think they need to be in a seven speed. 76 of the six because right now, the be playing Philly. That's the That's the last case scenario that you wanna have it that looks like it looks like a clean sweep to me. For some reason. I'm kind of intrigued by this Toronto Raptors. Siri's You go back years and years and you look at the Toronto Raptors in the playoffs. Where did they go? I don't have a new coach. We have their holds coach. We get Dwane Casey, but they still have their point guard and that's the catalyst for for, you know. Each ball club in the MBA. Right now, it's not. It's no longer the document. Big the dominant big man, It's the point guard. You see Steph Curry. You see all these guys lead this team worst. Kyle Lowry when it comes to postseason, I don't Is averages are down by what three or four per game points per game rebounds, assists shooting percentage that he just doesn't get the job done. When it comes to the post season, the piston struck down three. Nothing in those games we had to buster beaters are two games down the stretch that at least solidified by command like four point, so this team against Toronto Raptors to me. It's best case scenario right now, because Oh, hi, Leonard. Ah, He's a great player. But we also have Zaza Pachulia. Maybe what? He could repeat What? He didn't help. Years ago when Kodai was on What? On the Spurs, But to me, I don't know what you guys I think that Toronto That it's a name that intrigues me more than playing. Fill your Ah, any other team in the Eastern Conference? I'm not ready for the Pistons is Equal Island or No, He's got way too much experience. Lowry's stats went down because you had to Rosen, who was there with an eagle, who also took a dump in his pants also took it down, but he was taking a big dumb because he was trying to be the man, so he's taken his stats away from cholera. Local Islander who's been there? Who's N BA Finals MVP. He's got the rings. You know He's got everything that he needs. He's way different than Damar grows and when it comes to this playoff stuff, Courted. You are where you entreat by the piston that rather season as kind of like a stretch between the Turner Raptor. Three. Nothing clean. Sweep it in all those games. Where was Kwai Blake Griffin was everywhere. They also had. Stanley Johnson gave one, though. But Bruce Brown and Kawhi Leonard The young, gritty Bruce Brown. Could he do anything in school? I learned that in that playoff series, I doubt it. Kwai Lin is a different animal. There's different. There's different levels from regular season to these playoffs and Kaleigh. Leonard is a different animal when it comes to the playoffs for shore..

"Get projects smarter, faster and easier. Welcome to today's Home Depot. How doers Get mortgage done. Some of these scores air interesting. Florida, Texas and him tied at 31 in the fourth quarter. North Carolina had a huge lead on Virginia Tech and now it's down to 5 40 to 37, Missouri. Hanging with l s u 41 38. In Oklahoma beating Texas by 14 31 17 in the Red River Shootout, Joe the still the biggest story, I think today is the end of a game last night and I we've talked a lot about what it meant. For LeBron not to take the shot and all that, but I just have a more fundamental question. You think he can win this series? I mean, it's probably unlikely we see Goran Dragic. Uh, when you look at Jimmy Butler's had amazing performances, but if we're being honest, Doug Robinson had a really good last game. Heroes had one good game. But some of these other guys haven't been consistently great yet. They're still in it. You could read that one of two ways like they're probably not gonna have another amazing butler game. Or you could say if all these dudes they still haven't played a great game yet, and they're still in it. Where do you come out on it? They can absolutely win this. Siri's now are the odds in their favor. No, obviously because they're down three games to two, but they can absolutely win this Siri's. They've already pushed the Lakers harder than anyone had pushed them prior to this. Detroit got one, Denver got one and Houston got one, and that was it. There were a lot of blowouts in that Siri's, but the reality of the situation is this heat team does not go away. They don't know how to quit. They don't know how to give up. They don't know how to roll over. Alligator blood is tape. Teddy KGB would say alligator blood. They keep hanging around hanging around and you give him these opportunities. They're going to seize upon them, and that's what they did last night. That's what they did down two games to none when everyone was just overlooking them. And then boom. They fired back. And Jimmy Butler had that 40 point triple double, which led to another win. Now again, is it likely? Myron? No, but they've given this team a fight. They're very well coached. They've got superstar talent. They can hang with the Lakers. What the Lakers are realizing is that when you run too deep, and the rest of the team can't be counted on a regular basis, you're going to run into trouble against well coached teams that have some balance. Matt. What do you think it is? Because I'm guilty of this, too. And not believing in a team that beat the number one seed Milwaukee Bucks. Wait, the Boston Celtics and now here they are three to against the Lakers. Like what would it take for us to believe that the Miami Heat have an actual chance? I I'm with you. I don't know why. I mean, sometimes I look in the mirror and try to just address myself and I say self. What is it about you that is not doing extra wide. One of things, I say itself. Why don't you believe in the Miami heat? Because I was convinced against Milwaukee that Milwaukee was going to come back. I mean, lookit Johannes is so good that Miami is going to get cold. When it comes to Boston. I was convinced Look I know they're down 31. But these guys are gonna get hard. It's the Celtics come on, and the exact same thing here. I assumed, you know this has been a nice story, but they're going to get swept. I think it's because Joe that at least for me, I've had to recalibrate how I number one. Look at Jimmy Butler. I didn't consider Jimmy Butler a star and I'm of the opinion. You have to win a title. You have to have a star. It's only happened really once when that hasn't happened, and that was that Pistons team. And then I think the second thing for me was I just looked at those role players and I think I downplayed their toughness. It just was. I didn't give enough credit to the fact that even though he went D three, Duncan Robinson would hit big shots that Tyler hero could be a rookie, but still not scared that Jae Crowder still had something left in him. I think that's what it was for me. But I can't help but now say they're right there with a shot to win a championship. I think what it is for most people is that when it comes to the embassy, people are programmable. It's a programmable sport. What I mean by that is your program to believe LeBron James will be in the finals because he's been in the finals. What 10 of the last 11 years your program to know who the good teams are. You were told the Warriors would be good. You were told the Clippers would be good. You were told Boston would be good. You hear the narrative over and over and over again, and you believe it. No one ever told anybody that Miami was going to be good. Even when they tried to tell you With that great home record, they went ahead and counter produced on the road by having a terrible road record. It's the exact same reason why so many people can't bring themselves to the point where James has surpassed. Michael Jordan is the greatest of all time. Because you have a group of people a large group of people that for 20, plus years have been programmed into believing that Michael Jordan, the greatest basketball player that ever lived, and that's largely true, But now those same people. Because we fear what we don't understand, are watching something play out in front of their very eyes every single night, and they have to find ways to cut it down because they can't accept the truth. That's in front of him. White James takes more heat than anyone. James shouldn't have passed last night. You should have taken the shot. He made the smart basketball player last night, but you got to cut him down. Now. Danny Green makes that shot. You know, the narrative is James didn't want it. Danny Green had to win the title for him much like Ray Allen had to win a title for him in Game six. Back in 2013. There's always going to be a way to cut down LeBron James because people fear the idea that he has surpassed their beloved God. Michael Jordan as the greatest of all time yet if it's easy to make assumptions about LeBron James Considering who he's faced, right. You always expecting to get to this moment, but he's gonna lose. You're like OK Tim Duncan and Kwai Lin er on the other side, Dirk is they're all he's got to get through Kevin Durant, Steph Curry and Klay Thompson. So there's almost none of this built in understanding of He's really good, but he's facing an incredible opponent. You don't have that in this series, fellas. You've got a team in Miami that has played incredible basketball. But you're looking at a squad that might not have a guaranteed Hall of Famer. I don't know what Jimmy Butler do from here. But that's the kind of team when you look at him ago. Oh, James will steamroll that team, So you just assume that he'll find a way The difference Making in this series is that we know Miami can keep things close and.

"Three. Nothing clean. Sweep it in all those games. Where was Kwai Blake? Griffin was everywhere. They also had standing. Johnson gave one, though. But Bruce Brown and Kawhi Leonard, the young gritty Bruce Brown. Could he do anything in school? I learned that in that playoff series, I doubt it. Kwai Lin is a different animal. There's different. There's different levels from regular season to these playoffs and Kaleigh. Leonard is a different animal when it comes to the playoffs for ashore. Yeah, I think it's important to mention Member a couple years ago 2016 The Pistons make a playoff run Their 1 44 and 38. They swept the calves that year. The and that's what ended up playing in the postseason. Exactly What difference between LeBron James Oh, yeah, that's a good point. LeBron in the postseason abroad in the postseason is a different animal. But same with any Great team in the playoffs. They can turn it up a notch, and I think I would consider the rafters a great team. Now there's no LeBron on the rafters. But they have Kawai, who is pretty darn good himself. And a guy that has won an MBA championship in a guy I'm guaranteeing. Well, turn it on an extra notch. Once the playoffs come around, so I wouldn't I think they could get a game. I think the Pistons could win, maybe a game three at all CIA, but that's gonna be a tough. Siri's also picked up Mark Castle, which was huge for him as well. That's an upgrade from a valanciunas seaq and look like a future star in this league complain and It's just different. So can we blame all of the losses in the previous years in the playoffs on just Kyle Lowry and DeRozan? We do have their coach. Is he part responsible for some of it? And so we never know. So hope Not. So we don't play Philly Bottom line. If you play Philly, this is really a disaster. Way. Play with them. Just don't want you right now. We're in. It looks like we're Yeah. Gonna be if I had to guess, because Brooklyn has an incredibly tough schedule for the last seven games or whatever it is so Right now, I think all like the projections, which don't really mean a whole lot. But all the projections have the Pistons finishing at six and have the Sixers finishing at three so that could turn out to be a disaster. But at the same time I think it would kind of be fun to watch Joel and Andrea go at it. And maybe that'll be a good test for Andre, because if he can show something in that Siri's than maybe he's made some significant improvements. Now if he goes in And let's Joel, uh, buy a house inside of his head. Then you know it's the same All Andre and he hasn't made much progress. So that'll be a good barometer for for Andre. I believe, and we make a good ratings. Definitely for the for the networks between entree and Joe while they go out every game in game and even the postgame interviews, Andre calling him out a couple years back, saying You can't compare me to a man that can't play a back to back to well. The next game, Andrea picks up his second team. He's out of there and enjoy lt's waving the Detroit crowd so that we're great playoff serious. Don't watch just between those two guys. But bottom line is The final scores are to be ugly, and that's that's not what this city needs, especially the Lions, the Tigers and the Red Wings. Also being a dumpster fire. They need something to cheer for right in this city. They definitely need something to cheer for so they could draw Toronto they could draw Indiana Mean, highly definitely dry India at this point, But if that could happen this city could I. I think that we'll be seeing a different kind of animal in the L. C, especially when it comes to a crowd size. That's what the city needs, especially into tree with all the other. Professional sports teams. College seems besides Michigan State really not putting in Matt, What's your take out? I mean, the pistons need Ah, do some income postseason time, right? Oh, definitely. I mean, we hope as us fans like we hope to get Indiana maybe, like squeak. Gotta Siri's and maybe make it to the second round, but As long as we like, put up a good fight like I remember in 2016 when we played Cleveland, I wasn't really even though we got swept like I wasn't disappointed in a team. I was actually really proud of. The team for not being in the play offs for so long and for us given given Cleveland LeBron James and the Cavs a good fight every single game every game came down to the wire. So I was I was not disappointed in the Pistons that also if they could do that. Even if they get swept somehow if we play Philadelphia, Toronto, But if we make if we don't get blown out I'm proud of the team. If that happens, and 16 it was like it was a different feel, because they're younger they had on Andre was like what 21 years old. At the time, Reggie was healthy. They had told bias, then all of a sudden Get Blake Griffin and all the sudden you're out of the playoff contention. But now I think that I'm proud of this team this year. So far, I mean, we were high on them to start the year on this show, then when they completely fell off or out of the playoff race, it was just a huge kind of a wave of Yeah. Now, now they're kind of Ah. I know it's still it's still a race right now. Orlando and Orlando's down one at halftime and Ah, in Indiana and their a game the game behind the Pistons as the eighth seed that scare me. Orlando's a good team at all, but and you got you got Brooklyn was 1/2 game behind us there. Going in on the Boston Celtics. Right now. They're up 17. So I mean This race is still a race if I mean 678 sees the nine seeds are all solidified by game and 1/2. So ah! Don't count any teams out right now. I mean, Charlotte's still trying to make a run right now. So what's going to be the biggest key for the Pistons drew moving down the stretch and closing out this year with the final seven games..

The and that's what ended up playing in the postseason. Exactly What difference between LeBron James Oh, yeah, that's a good point. LeBron in the postseason abroad in the postseason is a different animal. But same with any Great team in the playoffs. They can turn it up a notch, and I think I would consider the rafters a great team. Now there's no LeBron on the rafters..

"kwai lin" Discussed on WDTK The Patriot

"Cal, Matt Shoemaker, Corey Gray and Percy Gibson. All in studio right now. 809 23935 is the phone number. Leave a comment on our Facebook page at dialed in Detroit. Let's start talking about this Detroit Pistons Ball club. We typed up Percy interview style for the first hour. Now Percy wants to stick around and types of Detroit sports. Cory's here as well. Corey called in the show, too. I want some lions draft about two weeks ago, so we'll get into everything here for you, folks. 802 39385 That's the phone. Pistons playoff course starting with you Drew since last time we talked about the Pistons what has surprised you and what has Ah, unimpressed you as well the same time with this ball club, you know, not much has surprised me. They went into that West Coast trip and they beat Phoenix, which I expected, and then they went on to lose the next three games on the road against Portland on the road against Golden State. On the road against Denver. Those are games that I never would have them winning. But, you know, disappointed me was that first half against the Denver Nuggets. I believe they put up. I don't know, but they were down like shot. 9%. Yeah, pretty much. 14% I think actually was, but they were down. 27 at one point And that that's the only part of the trip that really disappointed me because they just didn't show up for a whole half when it's this time of year and you have to show up no matter what s O that kind of disappointed me, but nothing really shocked me. They came back. Well rested and they beat the magic, which they needed to dio. But yet nothing shocking. So far way were the game was to you the atmosphere like in that in the L C A. To me. It was great. Yeah, I guess the Orlando magic they they didn't quite sell it out, but I think they had 18,000 in the building. And they were allowed. It was AH, it started to feel like a playoff game. You can't call that a playoff game because there's nothing quite like an actual meaningful playoff game. But People actually showed up and they were into the game. So hopefully as we move down to the home stretch that continues, and this team feeds off of that, and they really do like that's Other teams want to admit it or not, They care that people are coming into the building. So hopefully the fans continue to go through the gate yet to me what surprised me and and what unimpressive E was, of course, that West Coast trip Even against the Golden State Warriors. They came all the way back. They were down by 25. They came back. They made it a ball game. That really impressed me coming down the stretch. They still came up short, but against the Golden State Warriors Ball club. We all know how talented that team is. I liked what I saw in that fight. Then you come up against against Brooklyn, Denver and you just took a dump. And that can't happen down the playoff stretch because you have these games Where you win. You beat Brooklyn. You beat Miami beat Orlando. And you have to take atleast one or two on that West Coast trip. You have to take one or two of those ballgames and see the fight that I wanted to see in that in that Detroit Pistons buckled, especially in the playoffs stretch. I think they're gonna have to finish strong to get that I think they need to be in a seven speed. Seven seasons of the six because right now, that would be playing Philly. That's the That's the last case scenario that you wanna have it that looks like it looks like a clean sweep to me. Yeah. For some reason. I'm kind of intrigued by this Toronto Raptors. Siri's You go back years and years and you look at the Toronto Raptors in the playoffs. Where did they go? I don't have a new coach. We have their holds coach. We get Dwane Casey, but they still have their point guard and that's the catalyst for for, you know. Each ball club in the MBA. Right now, it's not. It's no longer the document the dominant big man, It's the point guard. You see Steph Curry. You see all these guys lead this team worst. Kyle Lowry when it comes to postseason, I don't Is averages are down by what three or four per game points per game rebounds, assists shooting percentage that he just doesn't get the job done. When it comes to the post season, the piste instruct on three nothing into those games. We had what two Buster beaters are two games down the stretch that at least solidified by command like four point, so this team and the Toronto Raptors to me, it's best case scenario right now, because Oh, hi, Leonard. Ah, He's a great player. But we also have Zaza Pachulia. Maybe what? He could repeat What? He didn't help. Years ago when Kodai was on on the Spurs, But to me, I don't know what you guys I think that Toronto That it's a name that intrigues me more than playing. Fill your Ah, any other team in the Eastern Conference? I'm not ready for the Pistons is Equal Island or No, He's got way too much experience. Lowry's stats went down because you had to Rosen, who was there with an eagle, who also took a dump in his pants also took it down, but he was taking a big dumb because he was trying to be the man, so he's taken his stats away from Kyle Ari. Local Islander who's been there? Who's N BA Finals MVP. He's got the rings. You know He's got everything that he needs. He's way different than Damar grows and when it comes to this playoff stuff, Courted. You are where you intrigue by the piston that rather season as kind of like a stretch between the Turner rafters. Three. Nothing clean. Sweep it in all those games. Where was Kwai Blake? Griffin was everywhere. They also had. Stanley Johnson gave one, though. But Bruce Brown and Kawhi Leonard, the young, gritty Bruce Brown. Could he do anything in school? I learned that in that playoff series, I doubt it. Kwai Lin is a different animal. There's different. There's different levels from regular season to these playoffs and Kaleigh..
