N.B.A. Investigating Kyrie Irving Over Maskless Party Video

"Back here. First things first and we're talking about kyrie irving the brooklyn nets star has been inactive for the nets last four games due to personal reasons and now a new report says it will be at least another week before he rejoins the team. Yesterday video emerged that appeared to show maskless at a birthday party. Reportedly dad of his sisters this on top of a picture going around of kiranas zoom call last night for a political candidate twenty minutes before his nets were slated to tip off so much going on. Here here's head. Coach steve nash on his point guard. And where things are you sure. Can you sure like. I said right now. I got to focus on coaching. The team even get the best out of him. So i can't make any predictions are prognostications about things that are outside of this building this evening. We got our hands. The you know we've had this five games in seven nights and we're in a place where we're really trying to put our foundations and saw my hands are full there. Then that's really what i gotta focus. I don't know if i was asked to. Curry was coming back. My answer would be of course not sure i was getting more comfortable with of course than a shore but crisper serge's is joining us. Now broussard will. What did you make of the latest news surrounding kyrenia in. What's natia to say in all of it. Well i let me start with this caveat. hopefully you hope and pray that there's nothing serious going on with kyrie irving whether in his family or mentally or something like that from talking to people about various people about this situation. I don't think there's anything serious like that going on. I think everything is fine in that regard. But i just had to throw that out there. I want to say a few years ago a couple years ago a few people around the league told me this and it's pure speculation but they said don't be surprised or i wouldn't be surprised if one day kyrie irving just shocked. Everyone and walked away from basketball now again. That's pure relation on their part but it's based on their knowledge of his personality and just seeing his moves in the nba. Then we have kyri last june about six weeks before the teams went to the bubble sane on zoom call with other players. I'm willing to give up everything for social justice reform and then last night we have him on a zoom call for the democratic candidate for manhattan district attorney while the nets should be are playing their game or right before when he should have been at the nets game. I kyrie irving is acting like he does not want to be a professional basketball player and i stress professional. There's a difference between professional basketball player and a basketball player of professional basketball player. Plays when he doesn't want to at times. A pro basketball player play is available understands. He has to go out and earn that paycheck of pro basketball player or athlete plays through life circumstances and dramas and the nets have got to get to the bottom of this pronto. If kyrie does no longer to be a professional basketball player they. He asked to make a decision he asked. Let them know. If i'm the net. I think i re down and i have this conversation with him and i also tell him. You're not getting paid for the games. You've missed already and you won't be getting paid for the games you presumably miss. Because i assume that leaves gonna put him under quarantine for colby violations from that party. If kyri says he wants to play a he does want to be a pro basketball player. I accept that. And then as soon as i'm done talking with him i pick up the phone and start calling around the league to trade him and i don't know who would take him at this point but if the houston rockets would take him. I would trade him for james harden yesterday.

"Talking a little bit about the situation with kyrie irving and the brooklyn nets just to highlight it. Kyri sorta went awol. This week ended up according to video at his sisters thirtieth birthday party. Without a mask he is going to deal with some covert protocol issues right now and there's really no explanation. Why he disappeared in the first place. Mike what do you do for with kyrie irving. Well simple if i was sean marks. Gm would call kerry in or text him or call him on the phone or whatever and asking plain and simple. Are you in as your heart in this or not. Yes or no and if he says yes and get your behind back here to work and let's go to work. This is unfair to your teammates and to the brooklyn fans. Either in or you're out one of you can't be halfway can't be you know we all have personal things to deal with in our lives. We all have to work through them. You know death sickness. Whatever but you gotta find out is are you in this year or not. Let me know now. Yeah i don't know if with that's an if he'd says no. I don't notice it will tell you what we'll just put your leave of absence. I'll try to do it without you. Do you really think re- ever knows his. He is one of the most ignites matic matic players in the league right. But you gotta find out just painted thirty-seven million bucks a year so you got to find out if he's if his heart's in it or

"Right welcome back. Look who's here perk with us Stephen i'm going to start with you on this one. If the nets do get hardened do they need to win the title. This season having this type of talent downright without question. And i'm gonna tell you why because the pressure is going to be immense first of all your k. d. Obviously everybody's looking at you comparing you to lebron and stuff like that Lebron goes and he assembles a big three. Then ultimately you want up to him and went to golden state and gave the ultimate big three. Lebron sits up de a d. is now in. La so you go to brooklyn you got kyri and then you get a james heart so the pressure will be immense on him. This guy read because of all the things that max has titillated throughout the years and to a lesser degree kendrick perkins when you talk about the lack of leadership there kyri urban may have shown from time to time. He elected to leave cleveland. The go to boston. The situation in boston didn't work out. He goes to brooklyn the only place. Twenty games helped was an issue and all of that stuff plus. He made some headlines. That's an issue. And then you've got james hearted remember. James harden didn't want the white how houston Ultimately he didn't want chris paul in houston and then obviously even though again and kendrick perkins knows this far better than me because he has those relationships with these guys. In particular russell westbrook russell westbrook made sure to reiterate to me. Listen his relationship. With james harden is as is big tom their brothers and they're gonna always be brothers. We did not talk about basketball. Just a relationship that he has with james harden which also articulated over social media. I by the way his relationship with james harden they are brothers and they are tight but that doesn't mean they want to play together so as a result of that rests with westbrook is planning on moving on as a result of him. Moving on james harden is moving on. And so there's going to be some pressure to bear because with all of this money that harden and k. d. and career getting paid along with the expectations. Let's bring in the last element you in brooklyn. New york utah. You're even denver. You're in the mecca the media capital. Now obviously the knicks are in new york city madison square. Got it but we should all be allergic to mentioning championship protection at a new york. Nixon brett at least at this moment atop the faith man leon roads and we'll worldwide west but the bottom line is is blasphemous sacrilegious to talk championships. And and the knicks but brooklyn fall weighs less than ten miles is less than ten miles away. It's still a part of brooklyn one of the five boroughs and there is going to be are meant pressure on manse. If the three of them larry know why go give it their. Kp might be right about this guy at five in milwaukee we might see silly. Do some things we know. Lebron is at whatever but if those three assemble no one is going to be interested in any stupendous as to why they did not win after three guys. You damn right. They need to win the chip because the world the world will be watching. First of all brooklyn is even thirstier for a championship. And i think is a bigger deal than a team winning in manhattan in the sense that brooklyn hasn't had a championship in sixty five years. Since the dodgers left brooklyn in fifty seven but they want and fifty five to go to air like that. But the knicks. You're right it's been almost forty eight years for the knicks but brooklyn is the nets or the team in new york. The knicks don't even exist compared to the nets right now and let me say this. There is immense pressure for them. To win you're right stephen while they're together i'm here saying it doesn't need to be in the first year for example if hardened goes to brooklyn and they lose in the finals and a tough series to the lakers. A team like that. It's all right but they have to win while they're together. Even this year's lakers team. I didn't pick them because it's hard to just throw a team together with guys have been played together. Get all the complimentary pieces right. Get it all right to go all the way. We saw that with lebron and his return to. Cleveland went to a game six of course they had injuries on that team. But that's part of it is coming off the catastrophic injury and we saw it again a result before that when lebron showed up miami with the big three it some it takes some times a year to get it right with guys playing together so i would say while there's enormous pressure for them to win while they're together because k. d. if he's most of themselves even is an mvp caliber player so is hardened and kyri may not be an mvp but he's more than just an all star he's all star plus you have to. Mvp caliber players an all star. And then some you're supposed to win a championship to gather. I don't think it has to be in the first year. And i wouldn't say that it's the kind of pressure for example when katie went to golden state. It's like there was more downside. Like guys you have to win it. If you don't win a championship that sorry i wouldn't. I don't think people will be looking at this team like that. Sorry if you don't wanna chip you gotta get outta the east

Kyrie, KD and Company: The Evolution of the New Brooklyn Nets

"Right now the nets are one of the more star studded teams in Bass ball this summer they went out and signed Kyrie Irving Kevin Durant De'andre Jordan and while Katie's not playing this year they are still seen as contenders but back in twenty six eighteen when coach Kenny Atkinson I came on board what did this team look like it was just a lot of hope and nothing much to base it on they won twenty games his first year they didn't win a game in February and they honestly really didn't have any genuine cowan right they traded for aging vets Paul Pearson Kevin Garnett well it's funny billy king and broker off before them decided to put all their chips in and give away all of the future first round picks and it was one of the most lopsided deals in history it's one thing right to have young players and not a lot of games I think we call that tanking but they couldn't even do that because they weren't even eligible to get the draft picks to draft picks we're going to the Boston Celtics who are picking guys like Jalen Brown and Jason Tatum with those picks so nets were behind the ball then when they hired a new GM Sean marks at twenty six teen what was his approach well Sean was just he's just so smart in Kenny's the same way they were really stuck on what's our culture going to be we're going to play unselfishly it's going to be a player I organization we're going to see solidifies player performance and so you need the right kind of player to buy into that now you know a guy like Joe Harris who had an accomplished anything yet of course he was gonNA buy in but that's why they stay away from some of the veterans because they were afraid they wouldn't they just felt it was really important to establish that foundation as they went forward here so this culture that the nets were establishing it was markedly different from the rest of the NBA it wasn't a it was revolutionary but they just took it to another level check out the Brooklyn practice facility it's the nicest one in the league it's cold tubs hot tub store eight of the yard pools to help with conditioning there's a rooftop that has the most magnificent view of the New York skyline they wanted to make their facility so attractive that guys would want to stay there every day if you come in let's say it's a practice day you'll get a text the night before and they'll say okay your table time is it was just say eight thirty in the morning so you go to your table and they have a physical therapist there they have a massage therapist there and they say what hurts wouldn't you love that Meena I I'd love table time how do I get how do I sign up in my own home and so you get twenty minutes thirty minutes they work on whatever's bothering you whatever hurts and then you go into the weight room for about a half an hour then you go onto the court for individual one on one work can last up to forty five minutes so you've already spent two hours at the facility you and you haven't even started practice yet so that is a little different than other places so the nets debuted this very distinct culture right there really rebuilding because ravage the roster was when does it start to work obviously really wasn't working that first year the you know the Andre Jordan told me Oh yeah you know I remember going in there and thinking wow these I play hard I mean we're GONNA kill them they're gonNA play hard and you know so the second year it got a little better and I think really it was last year they started to see some of the it's Joe Harris led the league in three point shooting percentage last year and all of a sudden all this work and this culture seemed to kick in a little bit they won forty two games way ahead of schedule I don't think Shaun Kenny expected to make the playoffs within three years but that's what happens Brooklyn which is a playoff spot they had not made the playoffs in eight of the last eleven years you know Kenny Atkinson's reputation has off the charts in his time there because even players who leave like jared Dudley Demari Carol tell everybody yeah he works hard but man is he all about you and then the same thing has and was Sean marks they they put the players I and in this day and age is there anything more than an NBA player wants to hear then we're GonNa put you first what do you need so the nets establish their own culture and their teams increasingly competitive at the same time what was going on with Kyri Katie and De'andre so Jordan and durant and Kyrie we're all on the two thousand sixteen Olympic team in Rio they were on a boat a cruise liner vote was quite elegant an open pool asana several dining rooms a cigar bar because every NBA player needs that twenty four hour room service beds that especially made for seven foot basketball players K. D. in Jordan we're already really really super tight in fact I think right before the Olympics they went and got tattoos together Vegas to prepare for the Rio Games now durant had great respect for Kyrie's game but he didn't know him that well so they get to real remember coverage just hit that big shot to beat the golden state WARRIORS PUTS IT UP precooked Cleveland is and Kyrie was tired along year he made the big shot so he wasn't really invested the way durant wanted to be and he said something to him he challenge him and you know Durant told me the other day that the way kyrie responded which was favourably and positively said Yep you're right I gotta give you more was at the beginning of their bond so one of their last night's real lincoln drinks at one of the many bars and lounges on that ship and Kyrie said you know we should do this for real Indiana Georgia's civil what do you mean he said we should all play together so the groundwork for these three players playing together is laid on this vote outside Rio three years ago what happens is summer how do they finally come together well that's a good question they say that they all go on a conference call and say hey let's do this then with Katie and Dj was you know four sixteen in the morning us just talking about our futures and later on that day we just decided hey we're just going to break this like we're doing this another that's what they have to say because tampering would be at work I do believe member of the very famous view I think you and I talked about together on around the horn talking in the tunnel after the All Star game in Cairo whispering to each other and the tunnel yeah being lip read by some of the op the breeders in the world I bet that's what they were talking about this there's no doubt my mind they were texting all the time these guys text a lot they weren't touch with one another I'm sure it was in the works for a while I don't know if we'll ever know that for sure just because of how tampering works in the league

"Big try to wait, you're twenty twenty pick up because. Of the rules, the only reason they could even do that is because they have the nuggets twenty nineteen pick to sign and trades that there's a lot of complicating factors. They don't have the assets. And now they've traded away their picked, and there's no way you can get Anthony Davis to commit long term. And so, for all these reasons the nets if they weren't hoping to pair, Kate Kyrenia, Anthony Davis via signing kyri and trading Davis. That's now gone. It's kyri Indiana, slow their hope of kiting kyri, and Katie kyri. Jimmy Butler, I think is a very real possibility depending on what happens there. All those things were there. One last point, there is one place, kyri could go and recreate the exact situation. You're talking about with the exact guy he had, it was the first time, but you have to cross the just real quick, the big the team that's out there on the island is the Knicks right now because the nets if they wind up with kyri and even Tobias Harris, what is pretty is high on their radar as well. If they wind up with those two guys, it's worth dealing those two first round picks the Knicks traded Kristaps. Zingers to clear this cap space, and I don't wanna hear anymore about porzingas didn't want to be there was going to sign a one year contract. That's spin. They traded away. A franchise cornerstone in his early twenties to clear double max cap space to get Kevin Durant, and Kyrie Irving, if they only wind up with one, which they could have had anyway, I think they hold on. I think their hope was Kevin Kyrie Irving. I traded away, so it could be Kevin Durant, and somebody okay? I reveal when I think is worth trading porzingas for I think if they Katie and Kim by think it'd be well worth that's debatable. I mean twenty nine thirty years if we had more time we debated lose. Tonight's game for Klay Thompson will suit up after missing game three with that strain Hammy warriors find themselves down to one in the finals for the first time since they trailed Cleveland in two thousand fifteen despite trailing and despite all their injuries. Steve Kerr says his team is unfazed by the situation. It just feels like. This as usual. Honestly, I hope that doesn't sound arrogant, but the benefit of having been through five years of this as we have literally seen everything. You know, we've we've lost a three one lead..

That seems like a very lasting solid relationship. Good did pick by congratulations back three. All right. Our second round call is kyri Irving. Hello, kyrie. One Chris, which team representing, I representing the Boston Celtics. Cari. Let's face it. They're really two franchises in the NBA the Lakers and the Celtics. You wanna go to the Lakers and have people say, oh, he crawled back with his tail between his legs. So we could play with his big brother. No, you are capable kyri of lean your own team. We don't believe the narrative the hype out there about you this year. We know you are born leader. We know you are number one guy on the championship team. We just have to get rid of some of our young players who wanna make money who didn't understand. We're going for championship this year. And we will do that, because we're going to trade them for Anthony Davis, and the narrative won't be kyri went to join somebody else. It'll be Anthony. Davis came to join kyri one and one eight.

"The names kyri Irvine and Kevin Durant coming the Madison Square Garden next season. As a goddess covered this leaf so many years away that you have was the thought that comes to your mind. I know you've been pretty strong and saying you think it's going to happen. I mean the smoke you cannot ignore the smoke. It's been there all season long. They're a package deal. They're going to the Knicks. You know, do I have first hand knowledge that that's for sure happening. I don't I wish I did. I did neither do I want. I would love to you know, right before the playoffs. Started someone I trust very much told me, you know, they might be a package deal. But they're gonna look at the nets just as hard as the Knicks. But it can this is third. Well, let me say his Mark. Let me interrupt. I heard that about kyri not about K D that guy kyri in his in his folks his folks are trying to convince him the look heavily at the nets. But K D And Kyrie especially K D wants to play with kyri and they're looking forward to come into the garden, but it's ninety five percent. And I was instructed do not say one hundred percent with anything that K D until it's done. That's what you're you're. You're older than me. 'cause I you know, I I couldn't go ninety five percent with this with this stuff. It's so hard. And and look free agency things are so fluid, and I'm telling you, I was in Houston the other night and watch the warriors the way they celebrated and Kevin Durant. Was you know, face timing. Bob Myers and other people wanting to join in on the on abrasion a win like that surviving that series. Without who knows what if the warriors win win it again, a third straight title of fourth and five years who knows what that does to the equation. Does that somehow convince Kevin Durant to say, I don't know the answer. Maybe he's already decided he wants to go maybe winning another championship makes it easier for him to leave. But I'm just saying we still have a month the playoffs left. There are a lot of variables. And these guys have the right to change their minds. And you know, I'm sure. I'm sure they're all thinking about I'm Colli kyri. And we I mean, this is deeper free agent classes, we've had probably ever, and I think the sands are constantly shifting honestly. Yes, it's that you say that because Golden State definitely reached out to me and said don't count us out. Don't think for one second that we think we're gonna just lose Kevin Durant with certainly in a better situation than New York City. So it's gonna be real interesting to see. I mean, I'll I'll just say this. Okay. They as a team as a group at a franchise they looked at happy and unified after winning that series as I've seen in a long time. So you know, I just think we have to we have to nobody wants to let it play out. But we have to let it play out Mark's. Right. He was Stephen a SPN radio ESPN is. So let's get to some of these playoffs. First of all we look at the poll in trailblazers. A how surprised are you that the here in the Western Conference? They play game one the night at the oracle in Oakland against Golden State. War is number one. And number two. How much of a player? Do you think they could potentially end up being free agency, particularly alighted a run? They've made. Well, it's interesting because Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum these guys have been crying out for fraud court help and merkich outta great season until he got hurt..

There's there's a way to look at this summer where could get there. We about that in a minute if you want to, but you know. Frank pogo coaching LeBron right? Good luck within there. And then having Jason Kidd as your system, and you know, LeBron chaser gonna be whispering to each other the whole time their brands, and there was a live respect between them when they were players. Lebron sort of took over from Jason Kidd, triple double guy in the NBA. So I just think they they might have made dysfunctional place a little bit more dysfunctional that was possible. Now, if they if they get the players they need everything's better. So what if? Kyrie Irving to go there, you know. And if he goes there, maybe Davis strong arms trade, the Laker says look everybody, I'm I'm only going to go. The Lakers don't even bother trying to trade for me. Promise you I'm gonna opt out leave as a free agent after next season. Go lakers. Out that way that we can get them. And if they went ahead and son Kyrie or somebody else like that. They could they could make Davis Nelson. You got LeBron Davis. Lebron Jimmy Butler, whoever it is anti Davis. Now, all of a sudden we're talking about the Lakers and the whole different of fear right now. Again, now on paper that looks like that would sound like a really good team. But it seems like there would be a really big power struggle if they had Vogel with LeBron James kyri, some of the other players you just mentioned how would they avoid that blowing up in their face? Well, it is a good question because you know, Frank Vogel is not he's not Tyron Louise, not somebody that knows these guys. And clearly he was not the first choice. So he goes into it from a position of weakness. That's for sure he's got a three year contract with Massey's number of years. Lebron has so they were not interested clearly making a big time investment coach for long-haul while he side your contracts. So he would have to deal with that. But I would think LeBron with care of a lot of that stuff. A lot of that power struggle within the team on the players team. Who would be the number two guy who would be the top guy alongside. Lebron? Would it be would be Davis? Lebron with after figure that out that wouldn't be for the coach. Lebron figuring it out most of the time he figured that out because he needs to he wants to win a championship enough to everybody on the same page. So I think that part of it. It's it's a great way of looking at it. But but that's the one good thing. Lebron what bring you know while apart? He'd be people. Look you come here, and I'll make sure this team work and the only worry about the coach you'll need to worry about rob point or anything else. I can make this work and credible could say I think most players would believe he could make a work in. How does that hiring process? Go obviously, Jason Kidd involved in they have to LeBron involved. I mean, they just I don't think they call up and say, guess what his coaches how does that train?

Kyrie Irving's Free-Agency Countdown Officially Begins Now

Kyrie Irving's Free-Agency Countdown Officially Begins Now

"Is what happens with Kyrie Irving because Kyrie Irving is now in a situation where he's going to become a free agent at the end of the season. And he's head is worse stretch of playoff basketball in his career over the last three games. The guy has literally missed forty three shots in three games. Forty three shots Janta Toco is averaging nearly thirty one points per game in this series. And Kyrie Irving is averaging twenty one and you're saying, well, yeah. Yeah. This is the better player, but Kyrie Irving is supposed to be the alpha male the Celtics team he's supposed to be the star. And he's averaging ten less points per game than the guy on the other side is and after the game when he's asked about he's shooting struggles, he said who cares? That's what kyri ever said. Who cares? We'll tell you. Everybody cares. Right everybody. That's rooting for the Boston Celtics. Everybody on your team cares. Because if you don't perform at a high level they have no opportunity to win the game. He said after he shot eight for twenty two from the field on Friday night that he didn't expect another eight for twenty two performance. He followed that up on Monday with a seven of twenty two performance after game three he called himself, a basketball genius a basketball genius. That just so happened to miss how many shots v. Fifteen in the last game. He played them. But Cairo is telling us all that. He is a basketball genius. And for all the things that have happened this year with Kyrie Irving and the Celtics organization he's called out his teammates multiple times. He said the young guys aren't ready to win a championship yet. And to that I would say kyri you're not exactly ready to championship as the alpha dog yet. You could do it when you're playing side kicked. Lebron James, right? It's like those motorcycles with little sidecars. Kyrie was in the sidecar. You can do it as the guy in the sidecar. But you can't do it as the guy actually driving the motorcycle, right? Yeah. I'm able to prove that you haven't done that yet. So kyri you have not proven. You can win a championship yet as the main guy. Okay. So all the rumors all season long were about New York because kyri Irving originally said that he wants to stay with the Boston Celtics as long as the organization would have him. He did a commercial with his father where he said, I want my jersey retired in the rafters here in Boston. Right. So he said all that stuff. And then when he plays the game at Madison. Square garden. He says asked me about my free agency on July first, he also referred to the New York Knicks as a great organization, he's the first person ever to refer to the Knicks as a great organization, they have one of the worst odors and professional sports in James Dolan. But it appears that Kyrie Irving could be interested in going to the Knicks, and they are the favourite to land Kyrie Irving in free agency. So say, hypothetically, he decides to go if he follows Kevin Durant again, it would be something that is a masculine for Kyrie Irving because their whole reason he wanted out of Cleveland is he wanted his own team. Right. And he basically got the best situation to get his own team. He had to number three picks, Jaylen Brown and Jason Tatum. He had out Horford. Who's a great player? The guy's a great defender. Great shooter does everything for you. Great passer at the big man position. So you had a great roster around you, and you were unable to take advantage of that as the guy. So maybe Cairo Irving is learning. What were you all are finding? Out is Kyrie Irving just isn't a main guy. And if he does go to New York, and he does go there to play with his good, buddy. Kevin durant? What would that be saying? He would actually be admitting. What we've all been asking about. Kyrie Irving is can you actually carry a team because if you go there to play with Kevin Durant? Sorry kyri. Kevin durant? The best player on the team. That's pretty damn obvious. So you'd be going there to be Kevin Durant sidekick you'd be getting back in that little small seat in the motorcycle alongside Kevin Durant. Just like you were doing with the Brian James. So you'd actually be admitting that you were wrong about yourself. You were wrong that you could carry a team to a high level to an NBA championship caliber level. You'd actually be admitting that but moving forward with this thing say hypothetically that they get Kevin Durant and Kyrie goes to play with his friend because he can't carry his own team. He goes there. Then the question becomes if the Knicks are able to win the draft lottery. Would they be willing to go all in and make another big move? Because what the Knicks could do which is amazing to me to even fathom this. The Knicks have been one of the worst run organizations in sports they've given out bad contract after bad contract. James Dolan has been a mess off the court the issues, which is Oakley. It goes on and on right? There's been so many issues with the New York Knicks. Okay. This team that was so dumb. Carmelo Anthony only wanted to play for the New York Knicks. He was in the final Ervin's contract. And you got it your roster to trade for Carmelo Anthony when he would have signed with you in the off season. Anyway. Okay. This is that same organization this organization could in a couple of months land to stars in Kyrie Irving, and Kevin Durant. Just because they're located in New York and just because they play in Madison Square Garden. It's kind of like the Dallas Cowboys like players want to play for him. Not that it's bringing them any high level of success. But because of the Dallas Cowboys, right? The Knicks are kind of that team like just because it's the Knicks and its New York, and it's Madison Square Garden, apparently people go there and with Kevin Durant is. It's this whole situation of well. I'm never going to get the credit. I properly deserve in Golden State, or at least. I'm never going to get the credit. I think I deserve. So if I go to New York, and if I carry a team there, maybe I will win back the fans that left me saying it was a cowardly moved to go to Golden State. So you have two guys at grumpy, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant. Then the question becomes if you win this lottery. Are you going after Anthony Davis do because that's the next good legitimately? Do. That would be the best piece that anybody anybody in the league could offer the New Orleans pelicans, the number one pick in the draft, which would mean, essentially the rights design Williamson. Okay. So you could have that if you're the New Orleans pelicans. That's why they made the right move the whole time I've been trying to say this by taking the Lakers deal because now Philadelphia maybe they become involved. They put Ben Simmons in this thing. We know the Celtics could offer Jason Tatum. Jalen brown. If say, hypothetically that they think that Kyrie irvings gonna stay. So there's that package out there. The Lakers packages still. There. There will be mystery teams that come around in this thing and Zion. Williamson out of all the stuff that people could offer. He would be the most attractive piece that anybody could offer. So the Knicks out of pure ineptitude. The Knicks pure incompetence could actually have the best trading piece to pick up a third superstar to pair hypothetically with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant. They've been so bad that somehow this could result in them this summer landing Kevin Durant's, kyri Irving. Anthony davis. Because of the fact they've been so bad like Kevin Durant going to New York. It's not like he's going to a winner. Right. That's part of the reason he can leave golden safe for New York is essentially what he's saying is. Yeah, I'm going to place. It hasn't won since Phil Jackson was a player ongoing place. That's desperate for a winter. Like he can actually sell going to New York because it hasn't wanted a high level the franchise he can actually sell that. That's a selling piece for him to go to New York to win fans back, and you know, the Kevin Durant. The second he signs on the dotted line or the second. He releases something whatever like the player's Tribune. Or something the second. He does that. He is a hero in New York. He's a hero in New York. Okay. And it's all because of this organization's incompetence they've been so bad that Kevin ranker justify going there. They were so bad this year that they could have the number one pick in the draft which they could either use on Williamson who's the best prospect since Anthony Davis or they could use. I n Williams to trade four Anthony. Davis depending on what kyri Irving and what? Kevin Durant could hypothetically what could hypothetically want. Now, if I was New Orleans that would be the easiest trait of my life. Okay. So Anthony doesn't wanna player he has an opt-out after this year. He's going to be a free agent next summer. You're telling me that you're gonna give me Zion. Williamson I could get Zion. Williamson who is the best prospect since this guy Davis that we Drake that we drafted years ago. Okay. Yes. Sign me up for that one. But man, I got to tell you this. And I understand that the Knicks. There's not really a reason to hate them because they haven't been good in a while. But would kyri Irving and Kevin Durant pairing be like the most unlikable pairing in the NBA? This would be worse than the Dwayne Wade. Chris Bosh, LeBron James pairing, right or the trio if you will because that was the reason people hated that trio wasn't because Dwayne Wade was dislike -able it wasn't. Because Chris Bosh was dislike it was. Because of the fact of how they did it, right? Lebron did the whole decision thing. And then they had that. Press conference where they came like out of the ground. And the bronze said not one not two not three that championship thing. Right. So that's why that team became dislike -able, but this team in New York would be dislike -able because of the guys. Right. They hate the media. They go after everybody they seem like they feel like they're victims. Right. We've seen with Kevin Durant time after time where he thinks that he's a victim. Same thing with Kyra. Kyrie Irving thinks he's a victim like Cairo serving. Also, there's no accountability. Kyrie Irving the guys not accountable for anything the other night when he misses twenty two shots. He said I wish I took thirty the guys not accountable. He talks about the shooting woes. He says, I'm not worried. There's no accounting. There's no I haven't played well in this series. I have to play better on the reason. We're losing I have to be better on the leader of this. There's none of that. There's no accountability whatsoever. When his team is struggling during the regular season. What does he say the young guys don't know what it takes to win a championship? So there's no accountability with Cairo Irving, everything that happens to Cairo Irving. That goes against his legacy that works in a negative manner. He tries to spin it in a way that it's the media's fault. He blamed the media for the Celtics locker room issues. He said the media tries to rip apart locker rooms kyri. You're the guy that's called out the young guys. You're the guy that got in the coaches face after he called the play for somebody else. You're the guy that yelled at Gordon Hayward on the court for passing Jason Tatum. When he was wide open at the end of the game against the magic this year. When Tatum was trying to win the game. You're the guy that did all that. You're the guy that has had a bad effect on the locker room. You're the guy that said you can't wait around for Jalen Brown. You're the guy that did all this. And he had the DASS ity to blame the media to blame the media for trying to destroy his locker room when he was doing all that stuff internally. He had the gumption to say something along those lines. And also you factor in remember when hiree Irving and Kevin Durant were at the all star game. And there was that video that emerged where it looked like Kyrie was saying to max lots and then Kyrie Irving when in. Hey reporter, I should say here in Boston. The Boston Herald Stevo pet gave him the opportunity. He said, hey, you wanna kinda pour water on that? Because that video had leaked out. There any said that you guys just do this for the likes and clicks. And this guy Steve pet that didn't tweet video didn't even write about the video and was just asking Cairo to comment on it in Cairo Irving said you guys just do this for the likes in clicks. He said, do you think this is what the fans care about this exactly what the fans care about? If you're gonna leave the fans actually really do care about that. That's why Kevin Durant free agency and your free agency. And Anthony Davis is trade destination. Those have been like the hottest topics in the NBA season. So Mike God that team with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant who had faked Twitter accounts. So he could go after fans fans that were criticizing him for leaving for Golden State two years later, he was still upset about that to the point where he put on Twitter that it's because it was Russ and nobody else around like that's why he left it. He'd. Didn't have enough around him to win a championship. He felt the need to defend himself on Twitter to just the random person that was tweeting at him. He made up a fake burner Twitter account. So that he could attack fans. Okay. Those two guys would be teaming up and possibly they team up with Anthony Davis who used to be likable. But now Anthony Davis says on LeBron show the shop that he couldn't believe after he asked for a trade that the fans booed him. He's like I poured seven eight years in there. And I go out there. And they me Anthony you ask the organization for a trade.

Kyrie mired in career-worst 3-game playoff slump

Kyrie mired in career-worst 3-game playoff slump

"The Boston Celtics led by kyri Irving. Kyri do last night. Well, the biggest game of his Celtics career where they had to win. To tie the series up to a piece. He goes seven to twenty two from the field. And he continues in this shooting slump one seven from three and this has been ugly for kyri now. Kyrie's still gonna get as max. Maybe goes through York. Maybe stays in Boston. Maybe goes to LA with the clippers. I don't think he's going to like who knows? But the last really three games awful. Absolutely horrible four eighteen from the field in game. Two eighteen to twenty two from the field in game three and game four. He was seven twenty two from the field. It's not good enough. One five from three tool from three one seven from three. You're the man this is your team and right now, I like, Kyrie Irving lot. He's like crap. So I'm really curious with the guy. That's so competitive what they guy that. We know has killer instinct. To win a championship. And but a city team. Not on his back but make big plays. What would you sound like after the game? Well, fair question to ask about shooting slumps in the past fair questions asked about this shooting slump? Let's hear what career Ving had to say. After his team is now one loss away for being eliminated from the postseason shooting stretch. Like this. I think it's now at this point. Nineteen sixty two. Occurs. Best player. You know, prepare the way like I said is is a little different when you know, your rhythm is challenge every play down. You know, you're being picked full court. You know, they're doing things to test you, and you know, the expectations on me are going to be sky high and try to utilize their Russian against them and still put my teammates in grape positions while still being aggressive. I'm trying to do it all so for me the twenty two shots. I should've thirty really great shooter. So I think that just the consistency of going at staying aggressive is always going to put us in a great position. Obviously being more cautious on turnovers again down the stretch when they're going runs or managing the game better that way. Here's the problem with that. Now, I was around Steph curry once when he had a horrible game against the Sixers. Someone asked about after game says shoot. Gotta keep on shooting. So I respect that part of carries answer any should have that mentality. But when you say who cares to the question? Does it come off as a good luck? And it will make many people in Boston start to assume. Well, he's not really mad and he's gonna be leaving this team. And. Talked about he puts his teammates better positions, and this and that is that have just say, but we're all watching right now. And that just is a tremendous basketball players best players in the league. Right. How you take some accountability? And just say I stink right now. Because you've been horrible the last three games. And there's no surprise that. If you don't play well. Your team is not going to do. Well, because this is your team, Kyrie Irving. So I don't think there's any fight left in them. This team all year long as likable as they were your ago. This team has not been likeable. And this team has not shown any fight. And we've seen some signs out the year, Marcus Morris. It was very critical the team a few weeks back few months back, and he was very critical of this team, and you were questioning their life, and you were questioning the direction this team was going and foolish to me. I said I think this team even though I picked them lose the series. But I think this team look a little bit different applause. I wasn't overly concerned that the one game. They look great in the series. And everyone say other done there over they're gonna win the series Milwaukee's. Not ready for the moment. And then the walkie in games two three and four xlt clearly shown, they're the better team. And they're led by their start in the Greek freak. Who? Is one tremendous player to watch and have fun trying to slow him down. So Milwaukee looks like you Eastern Conference final Boston. Well, this is a huge disappointing season. Hi reserving. Now, the question is going to stay or is he gonna go. I think he's gonna go. And it's possible. When you're watching all these games when you see the warriors or two apiece. You start to wonder, oh is this going to be for Kevin Durant? And that's been a question all your long and a lot of people believe including myself that katie's gone. And you look at the actors you say will collide stay well. He leave. Well, even matter what is team does the playoffs this year. And you start to look at some teams that are in line to be successful potentially clippers had a very regular season. Anyone who's going to join them? A lot of talk about the Knicks. The odds are flecked that in Vegas. Mix. Pretty good odds when the championship. So maybe things K D end. Kyrie Irving of

Vegas bullish on Knicks' summer, '20 title odds

"You go to ask because the NBA playoffs are going on. And of course, always so much interest. Not only in the actual games. But what goes on off the floor in the off season, which is coming up. This summer Vegas seems pretty high on the Knicks chances of landings from free agents. Because is this. The Knicks have opened at sixteen to one to win the twenty twenty championship. Well, it's a classic case of Fulbe wants save on the. Twice on me. You know, it's it goes back to two thousand eleven when we hadn't seen this kind of free agent movement. Like, we do now LeBron summer two thousand ten Chris Bosh and Wade in Miami. And the books were hung out the dry ridiculous. So now that we've seen it. And we saw to rank goes boyer's oddsmakers are not going to be caught off guard again, they know better, and it's important to realize the futures market or the long shot odds they are one way betting, which means you can just bet twelve to one sixteen to one whatever it is. It's not like a point spread we can both sides minus three plus three now. So if you're only putting up a one way bet, but you can't bet Knicks not win the title, you're gonna air on the side of caution. Now, these sports do to make it fair to give some decent value. But with all that being said there in the business of making money so knowing that it's not too bad. They're gonna put up lower odds in Durant doesn't sign or they don't get to stars then they'll adjust accordingly, but it's fun for tea or betters players take a shot and make some wagers create interest. But they're not going to be held liable. They're reading the same. You know, wards Twitter that we are and everyone they're not dumb. I don't know. Doug. I mean, you get kyri you get Kevin Durant and Zion. Williamson. We know he's going to be a Nick. I think those odds are actually not I think they're good.

We'll have to see that's your only exit strategies, not one won't won't be enough in you know, what? Kevin Durant did say a couple of months back. It's toxic around LeBron because those fan boys in the media who over protect him, and you have to live with that day in and day out, Katie subject himself. He doesn't care doesn't bother him. Yeah. He would do it. But would anybody else workout Reno what it's like to play with him because he played with him for three years. We understand what is lacking. Lebron with them in LA is different.

Underappreciated? LeBron James calls Damian Lillard 'a superstar in our league'

"How Lillard runs the team and always has a balance of when am I getting mine versus window a half to kind of get other people involved. It just felt like he had complete command the game for four quarters and. You can't say that about Kyrie Kyrie floats in and out of these games. And this is why the more I said this last week on the on the pod the more look at the situation. He was in Cleveland. It was the perfect situation for him because he's really afloat in and out of guy, which is exactly who you'd wanna pair. Lebron James does perfect number two guy. This guy might take over for eight minutes or you don't have to worry about him for a quarter. That's why what would the bridges, you know. And I I was just really impressed by Lillard. I voted for him for second team. All I'm bay last year. I think he's a lack to be second team all NBA again this year. And I if you doing a hierarchy pecking order, I think he's gotta be higher than kyri. Don't you think he has to be no look I thought he was better going in. But it was one of those things just watching it. And I really watch those two for long straight because they were knocked up head to head game too. I was kinda surprised how they did their defensive rotations. But I'm not gonna say that. It was a mistake unless somebody explained it to me. But there were there were so many times. I'm like man, they're still sticking with kyri on Lillard here. This is a disaster. Yeah. They can't hide him Lillard. Cooked them living cook them in by the way, Lilla just I mean, I didn't think Lillard wasn't better. But it's one of those games where it was. So obviously, he's to is that like from now on until like Finnity, I don't wanna hear anybody who's the Celtics buddy of Kyrie resigns in Boston where they go actually Kyrie's better the Lillard because he's just he's just not that whatever the pecking order is he's lower

Well, the podfather said that he has yet to find somebody that says Kevin Durant is not going to be on the Knicks this year next year and the podfather was in the news yesterday podfather closer talking about Bill Simmons and. He said that the New York knickerbockers were for sale, and the James Dolan was taking offers well Madison Square Garden group, they released a statement. And they said this, quote, there has been nothing notice Gushin's, no plans to have this Gushin's. Nothing dot the story is one hundred percent balls. Jalen rose. I have a theory. It's not smart sell the Knicks right now. But when you get a couple of free agents, and maybe you get signed Williamson. That's when you sell the Knicks, and I predict the Knicks will be sold. Before this time next year.

The most important things from Adam Silver's state-of-the-NBA address

"Meantime, NBA Commissioner Adam silver made the league stance. Clear on trade request by some of the NBA's more higher profile players over the last few years stores, including kyri Paul George Leonard Jimmy Butler and Anthony Davis had requested trades from their respective teams. Well before their contracts were up silver expressed concern with the development without calling it urgent for the Commissioner's office. He pointed out the way Davis is recent request was dealt with from the pelicans. He felt the need to find Davis's agent or Rich Paul of clutch sports that was fifty grand silver with more on that subject. No, I don't like trade demands. And I wish they didn't come. And I wish that all those matters were handled behind closed doors. But but don't forget even part of it. Maybe the league has to take responsibility. When we in the most recent collective bargaining agreement. The thought was teams should be able to be in a position to. Attend a year earlier. So that a player didn't reach the end of his contract. And the team was then in a position where they were blindsided and say, well, we had no idea the player wasn't going to stay and the notion of extending a year earlier could have that conversation with the player and the player told you behind closed doors, of course, going to honor my contract, but I don't plan on staying at the end of it. The player would be in a position to get value for the player once again. Know, the love and consequences. It hasn't worked precisely as we had planned. So yet another area we need to

Kevin Durant: 'I Just Don't Trust' Media; 'I Have Nothing to Do with the Knicks'

"Well, we're talking a lot about Kevin Durant. And what happened last night Durant had not spoken to the media for eight days that ended last night the warriors smoked the San Antonio Spurs. And after the game Durant sat down and spoke with or you might wanna say spoke to the media here was Durant. Pushing back at a column in the ass by Ethan shrouds. You gotta do Ethan Strauss who come in here. Yeah. Just give his whole opinion on stuff and make it seem like it's coming from me. And he just walking around here. Don't talk to nobody just walk in here. And survey is something like that. And now. Yeah, pollen on me because I don't wanna talk to you about that nothing to do with the Knicks don't know who traded porzingas. I got nothing to do. With me. I'm trying to play basketball coming here. Every day actually about free agency is my teammates. My coaches roundup the fans about it. Let us play basketball that's all along sand. And now I wanna talk to you is a problem with me. Woman grow up. Yeah. You grow up. Moreover, I come here and go to work every day on 'cause no problems. I played it right away or try to play the right way. Try to be the best player can be every possession. What's the problem? What am I doing here until the grow up part? I think people would have listened to that and said he's mostly being reflective, and he's trying to figure out how to handle this tough situation that he's in with everybody talking about New York and him being a Nick. But then when he says grow up, and he says, yeah, you and he's literally talking to one individual, which is Ethan Strauss. That's a little condescending. And that's anger. And that's obviously frustration coming through in Durant. Just sounds awful, especially when he gets to that point of that comment. But he he wasn't finished here. He is on why he avoided speaking to the media. Why do I gotta talk to you? Tell me is that going to help me do my job better. Talk. I just don't trust time. Anytime. I say something is get twisted up and throwing out in so many different publications. Tried to tell me down my words, I say so when I don't say nothing surprising. I just want to play ball. I want to go to the gym and go home. That's all that a problem. I mean, how are you planning house a team plane? I'm done. Don't care about that. I just asked you. I laugh every time. I hear that the ending of that, you know, you don't care about that. I just asked you and good night storms off defensive angry. And I understand why he's frustrated I truly do when your name is all over the internet and all over Twitter and people are talking about what you intend to do. And how you feel without you telling people specifically what you intend to do. And how you feel it can be frustrating, but the defensiveness and the anger doesn't help. And let's remember that Durant. He's part of the problem as to why this drama exists in the NBA when he decided to go to Golden State. He helped this move along. This is not going to end. It's not going to go away. Reporters are going to continue to do their job. They're going to continue to talk to people ask questions. Ask durant. The tough questions. And his job is primarily basketball. But when you're the face of a franchise. He's one of many and Golden State. He would be the face if he goes to New York. Yeah. It's part of the job. It's part of your responsibility to have to answer some questions in every once in a while at least every once in a while, it's not going to be just about basketball. So that's Katie last night. The other NBA soap opera is of course, Anthony Davis. And where he's going to end up the trading deadline in the NBA is now just under ten hours away, three PM eastern standard time. We'll find out if Davis is still a pelican or not. And when I look at this situation between New Orleans and LA, I believe and this has been my belief from the very beginning this entire Davis to Lakers scenario was first created and then pushed by clutch sports, Rich, Paul and LeBron James. Lebron James is one hundred percent calculated some people try to act as if he is almost naive to some of these things he's not he's calculated. He understands he went back to Cleveland because he knew Cleveland had the pick that they needed to move to Minnesota to bring in Kevin love. He knew going back to Cleveland. He would be part of a super team. Kyrie Irving was already there. He knew how things were set up that they would be able to get love. And he understood that a LeBron Kevin love and Kyrie Irving trio would do some damage in the Eastern Conference. He also understood what was happening when he made his decision when he went to Miami. He's always making calculated decisions. There's nothing wrong with that. He's meticulous. He's methodical. And he's well thought out. So if you think LeBron had no part of this whole story, then I think actually you're the one being naive. He's cal. Rich Paul is calculated. And when you look at the timeline, it all makes sense, right? There was that dinner between Davis and LeBron then you add kyri publicly apologized to LeBron. Then LeBron goes on social media, literally singing, his heart out. It's a Kyrie Irving. Then you have all the Irving. Rumors. Oh, he might want to go to LA. You might want to go to New York. Then you have Davis come out with his list of teams his preferred destinations with really only one team with the assets that can make a deal which oh just happened to be the Los Angeles Lakers. And then the other night you had bench gate that was fun. Lebron has three chairs in between him. What's happening who should he move close to his teammates should one of his teammates move close to him? Where's Rajon Rondo sitting? It's been calculated by LeBron and clutch sports to get Davis to L A. And that's just it's obvious. But this off court game has not been one-sided. Here's Rachel Nichols. And Brian Windhorst discussing an interesting theory on ESPN's, the jump do you think that they were upset enough? I have no knowledge. I'm just throwing out a question that they were upset enough with what they have made clear they felt like was tampering and they felt like they were going into reach in after their player, and 'cause all this disruption in the middle of the season when they thought they had at least to this summertime. Do you think that they never intended to really engage with the Lakers that much? I kept putting out publicly all these trade offers. So that we saw last night it would ruin their team chemistry at least temporarily disrupt all their young guys make things miserable for this team. Is that possible? It's such as possible. It's what happened. I know that the pelicans put us let's go now the pelicans had a method to their madness. And the way this went. I love that theory take that theory injected into my veins, I love that theory from Rachel Nichols. The pelicans were upset about the tampering. So they set their part of this whole thing up saying, yeah, you know, we'll entertain a trait. Sure. Give us a call magic. Magic calls them every single time. He calls them New Orleans. Del damps the GM says nine not enough. But I'll give you this not enough. But I'll give you this not enough. How about this? No, thanks. Okay. Well, I'll I'll I'll also throw in this. I need more magic. I need more. I love that theory. Love it to try to get into the fabric of the Lakers in bother their youth. That's that's a juicy theory. And if it's true in Windhorst knows an awful lot as we know that it means that both of these teams are throwing food at each other. We we have a food fight west coast, east coast or more, you know, southeast throwing food across the country at each other right hotdogs hamburgers getting tossed, but the critical question the most important question. No matter how you feel about the drama who started the drama who continued the drama what if LA doesn't get Anthony Davis. What happens then? What if all this work by clutch, sports, and LeBron fails what if Davis stays in New Orleans what if Davis gets dealt to Boston on July first because Boston decides to trade Jason Tatum? What if

"Lot of college basketball tipped off again picks on Instagram stories. I've got more coming up. That I will post shortly. But let's quickly go back to the Brian win her stuff. And again, I think we've been on Kyrie Irving. Correctly for a little while you could just forget about this kyri teaming up with LeBron stuff. Okay. Anybody pushing that seems I don't think they know what they're talking about Windhorst again winter like an Indian reservation. With Kyrie Irving. He spent time with him in the off season. Carbon Irving is we've said is a different dude. Lotta guys want to team up. I don't think he wants someone above his level. To be teaming. Kevin durant? I starting to say, no, I don't think he wants to be with Durant ranson alpha. You to Anthony Davis win was made a great point. And I think we got the audio here. Shortly about is kyri Irving's push back yesterday about I don't know anybody anything how much of that is a reaction to the Celtics being Gaga frantically Davis. Why are they Gaga for him? Why not me? Here's what Brian Windhorst had to say about the unpredictable. Kyrie irving. I don't know if anybody can truly be friends with career, he's just a different type of guy. And he's such a tremendous player that you're you know, you're willing to sign up for it. Just like with Durant. You're willing to deal with his sin skin and stuff like that. Again, I can pull out these whiteboards. I can paint you some gorgeous pictures. They would get all our people excited about building super teams, but the personalities involved here, and the fact that the players are taking agency they're taking control back from the team. It makes it very difficult to make some sense to make predictions. But that's just a reality that I'm seeing I have no idea what sort of mood. Kyrie is going to be in three days. No way, I could possibly know how he's gonna feel on July. Kyri Irving is. I wonder if he's going to end up not being in Boston. Gavin. I I have a feeling I just my gut telling me, Kyrie Irving ends up in Brooklyn summer where he can be the alpha Brooklyn has a lot of those good Kerris Lavertu Spencer Dinwiddie Jared. Allen good good players. They're a playoff team right now in the east. They need an alpha. I I know this is gonna sound four and people who think everybody wants to team up kyri doesn't want to team up, but he doesn't want to team up with an alpha. He was a team up with somebody who's slightly beneath him. So he can call all the shots. So he can run the show. Man. This NBA is crazy. All right coming up next here on the big lead. Fox Sports radio. Ian O'Connor who wrote the book on Bill Belichick coming up next year on Fox Sports radio. But first, let's go to Isaac low and Kron from the latest Jason as we speak.

Anthony Davis' Father Rips Celtics for 'No Loyalty' with Isaiah Thomas

"So Charles Barkley last night on TNT with some pretty strong words about Anthony Davis his trade demand from Nola. It was done privately at first last weekend. Then Davis is agent. Rich Paul who we not. So coincidentally shares with LeBron James went public with an on Monday. And since then we've had four days of back and forth. I agree with Chuck sentiment. Right there. I certainly do so awful for I don't know the twenty five teams in the NBA who don't reside in these power cities. It's awful for them. But for the fans, it's great these rumors are awesome. I mean, just compare and contrast the NBA with baseball. I mean this off season is like, you know, here we are February first spring training two weeks away and to the most to the best free free agents. Excuse me, possibly ever tit the market in their primes Bryce Harper and Manny Machado are still unsigned because we got going on baseball the NBA. It's trade deadline and all this stuff is going around. And just as we were in break. Got the story up here for Mona's Shelburne in ESPN NBA insider posted at seven twenty four. So just about fifteen minutes ago. The father of pelican star Anthony Davis said he does not want his son to play for the Celtics if they would require him via trade this summer. I would never want my son to play for Boston After what they did to. Isaiah thomas. Anthony Davis senior told ESPN on Friday. No loyalty, the guy gives us, heart and soul. And the traded him. David senior went on to clarify, these only speaking for itself, he's not speaking for his son. This is just my opinion. Non anthony's. He said I've just seen things over the years with Boston. There is no loyalty. So that's Anthony Davis father saying that the way Danny Ainge shipped. Isaiah Thomas added town for kyri two summers ago after that playoff run playing through the hip injury playing after the death of his sister missing teeth still finding its way onto the court said the terrific postseason. He had where the Celtics do they turn around trade Thomas for Kyrie Irving any Davis. His father's says, no royalty that set. I don't want my son go into Boston. I say are you serious? You kidding me? The Celtics are the only team in the NBA who pull this kind of stuff really the salt. Are the only team in the NBA who have traded a player who didn't want to go. Really Anthony Davis senior Nolte, obviously, no loyalty, it's a business. It's a business and guess what? The Celtics made the right call. They made the right call. What's Isaiah Thomas doing right now playing for the veteran's minimum carry Irving asthma Curiel as he is as enigmatic as he is going to start in the all star game. Having a great season. He was great last year until he got hurt. Celtics aren't trading him at the deadline. I wouldn't do that. So he woke up on the wrong side of the bed today. Okay. Get them tomorrow. You keep carrier having here you win that trade. You do that trade ten times out of ten everyday twice on Sunday. No wilty believe me, if the Celtics acquire Anthony Davis this summer, and if they do resign him, they will not trade Anthony Davis. Believe me the difference between Anthony Davis and Thomas, quite large. You have something to say, drew. See return it on. I just think it's funny that loyalty. I'm not criticizing Davis for wanting to leave New Orleans, but loyalty is you know, kind of a two way. That's a great point. That's a great point. So your son. Is signed with the pelicans for one more year through twenty twenty the pelicans can give him way more money than any other team. That's a great point, and you publicly asked for trade this week less than two weeks before the deadline trying to undermine all their negotiation leverage. And then putting it out there that you only want to re sign with the Lakers. So you're not just publicly declaring trade, which you were fined fifty thousand dollars for doing by the way because that's against league policy. So you're not just publicly declaring a trade west in two weeks before the deadline undercutting your team's leverage. You are then in order to further undercut your team saying, oh, by the way, I only want to re sign with the Lakers everywhere else is just renting me. Wait what? Yeah. Great point loyalty. How what your son is doing? And again, no problem with that power to the players. Anthony Davis has the right to do that. I mean, this is what star players have done since the decision special with LeBron James a decade ago. So I get all that. I have no issue there. But yeah, the to a street, I mean, if players can demand trades left, and right, then guess what teams that have these players under contract have a right to trade them as well. Have a right to trade them as well. That's week. That's week by Anthony

"Eastern or catch. It all on the Fox Sports app back here with Chris Bussard the other big game in the NBA yesterday Celtics and Sixers maybe the game of the season so far fourth quarter, Boston down one kyri to give the Celtics the lead twenty seconds to go down to kyri again this to Tiet Philly would have a shop to win in regulation. But Gordon Hayward all over JJ Radic can't get that one to go. We are going overtime where once again kyri steps up to big three pointers one there to give the Celtics lead. And then this one too. I sit Boston beats Philly one Twenty-one fourteen Chris Broussard, how impressive was kyri Irving last night. Night. It was incredible. You saw why even with LeBron James on the team kyri was the closer in Cleveland, and what was most impressive is he did it with Jimmy Butler on. And that defense was good like shaking bait and turn around mid range shot in the paint. You couldn't have played better defense than Butler did a lot of the Celtics problems right now are up to this point have been is not his fault. But they have been because of kyri the difference in style. Like last year. They were an equal opportunity offense without him moving the ball. Yes. He's in eyeso- guy. He's gonna take a lot of shots and all that. But come playoff time, they will need him. And last year. I don't think they needed it as much because the east wasn't is good and outside of Cleveland. It really wasn't a good conference this year with Toronto Milwaukee Philadelphia being proved they're going to need somebody that can just take over at the end. Games and their combination. I believe brass Stevens. Great coaching the other players intelligent play. And Kyrie's one on one ability still could get them out of the eastern com. Yes, it definitely can. But ultimately Brad Stevens. He's got to be able to change with this massive amount of talent that he has so's to me part of the problem is Brad changing because the only thing that's really changed for them. They brought everyone back so Gordon and Kyrie to typically the most to talented players and players with Gordon Hayward being one immersed. Most versatile players would think that I'm gonna add these two, and it's just going to be no they have struggled, and it's about style. How brat wants to coach Brad likes to control the game kyri has a feel for the game. He has the feel for run his own thing and he'd get his own shot. How are we don't need you to call the play? All he can he can take you off the bounce or call someone for a pick and roll and Bill to get his shot off that way. So. It's going to be a let's see going forward. Let's see who wins out our kyri because I don't believe kyri can change at this point in his career. And I believe Brad Stevens is going to have to make some adjustments for them to be able to reach their potential but him shining the way he did it really speaks to one of your points, Nick because you were worried about this..

"I mean is no shade into Wallin's is just this is not this is not the guy that you typically keep this is Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in Milwaukee in nineteen seventy five. I mean this guy normally gets traded. The Lakers have LeBron James and the Lakers are the Lakers in a play in Los Angeles. And they are the Lakers, and that's pretty damn attractive generally speaking, and that's before you even get to this whole Anthony Davis his hired rich. Paul bronze agent as his agent in keep in mind. It's not just LeBron's aging gave then LeBron own share in the company. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So guys. I mean, come on. Yeah. Davidson legged makes a great deal of sense now on the flip side of this. The Boston Celtics believe that they can get ebony Davis to say that he wants to come to Boston because he Kyrenia real cool, and he kyri are like brothers. And so they think that they can get him. The thing is the Celtics can't trae for Anthony Davis until July at the earliest because they would need Kyrie Irving to sign a contract extension because you can't they both got dare grows extension, and you can't get two of those guys via trait, and they already got kyri via trade. So they would have to resign him in order to work out a trade to get Anthony Davis. And they think that kyri is going to be the draw to get him. They're gay. Do you know how mad kyri is going to be LeBron guest? Davis comes in the Lakers. It he's going to be so mad to hearkens me back to conversation that we had on the podcast. A couple months ago. I think where how mad you think Kyrie would be his is if he's traded for Anthony Davis. Yes, there is that. Right. But what if we believe that he got his unbreakable Bagi recovery wants to be the guy to people come play with? And he thinks he's got Anthony Davis. Anthony davis. No, actually guys still wanna play with abroad. Car will be so salty if that happens. Oh my God. You'll be so you never mind Danny age. I don't even know of re-signing kyri is the best idea given their roster like overload of good players. But if they've been betting on getting Anthony Davis kind re couldn't bring them home. But you just gave Kyriakos money into world. You've got to look at him. Kind of crazy. Don't you? Oh man after after all the LeBron Abed teammates stuff guys don't wanna play with LeBron. I wanna go for my own squad. People are gonna wanna come play with me. And it's like, Nah, I wanna go. I don't think enough is being made of this Gary by retire. He really really by retired. Look, I think I remade the right decision. And I don't I say that from the standpoint that I feel I'm allowed to have an opinion if the decision as kyri Irvine happy, it ain't my place to determine what it, you know, saying like if he wanted it I've always been on that program. I understand totally. Why is that he will want Lou kyri as footage trade right around the same time, I live highly questionable to do high noon who was out of George understood exactly what he was talking about. He wanted to go do something else. You know, got it. But man, he's going to be looking at all kinds of different if somebody still go play with abroad that that he made the wrong decision. But. Tale that would hurt. Comparing clear trajectories here across mediums. Yeah. But you understand what I'm saying. Right. Somebody could've Tokai reuse need to stick with woods working. It wasn't me. Win the plan who man, but. This. If ebony Dave is leaves the pelicans this charts the future of like how many years of the NBA? This is a landscape altering possibility if he would wind with Lakers, or with the Celtics now, I would believe that the Celtics surly would be in a position to offer a much more desirable trade package than the Lakers would be would they? Yeah. Because I think that for Anthony Davis, you can get either Brown or Tatum. And I think I would rather have Brown or Tatum over any of those guys the Lakers really because people have been kind of down on Jalen Brown this year..
