"leonard kyrie irving james harden" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"Guy for the athletic. He got into a little ugly skirmish yesterday with gregg. Popovich here is the sound of gregg popovich being unhappy with our guest in about a minute. You ask the same sort of questions. Same family of question last time where you assume things that are not true when you just mentioned blowing these teams out. That's never happened. So i don't know where you get that. Can i finish. Let me finish my statement or not. So you'll be quiet now. While i talk and then i'll listen to you when you make statements about in the past just blowing out these other teams number one you give no respect to the other teams and i talked to you last time about the same thing. So let's bring in joe vardon. Who was part of that service disagreement from the athletic so he is saying basically. We don't blow these teams out and your argument is well. Sometimes we do so. Give me some clarity here on the moment yesterday. And what you guys were arguing about okay. So first of all. The question was not to coach. The question was damian lillard and it was essentially. Look you used to be sitting at home watching your colleagues play these games. I'm thinking about twenty fourteen when he was cut and again in two thousand sixteen and he was watching the this team win by an average of twenty nine points. Thirty points thirty two points and all of this team. Usa game notes and damian answered the question he said. Yeah it is different. It is having watched that. Watch the blowouts to now be a part of it on the other side Where they've lost tuna row. he's he did mention. I've also seen team. Usa challenged before a maybe never having lost two straight. And then greg he interjected on his own and he was thinking back to the first question that i asked him asked him after they lost to nigeria which was from a point spread perspective anyway arguably the largest upset and international basketball history And i basically asked. I said this is from a american exceptionalism in basketball standpoint. But you know you guys lost again. And what does this mean. Does this mean your messages aren't getting through that sort of thing. So he had still had that on his mind. I think he came Trying to you know refer back to that but not asked him any question and what you can't hear on the sound is when i start to interrupt when he started says start to say this isn't true We don't blow teams out. Well it's in the game notes again In two thousand fourteen two thousand sixteen twenty twelve huge margins victory yes in twenty sixteen gold medal game. Tsa one by thirty so then you look at now today. in two summers under under coach They're nine and five. And that's just that's never been seen before since nineteen ninety-two when the american starting started sending their pro so that was the context of where i was coming from. And and you know you guys saw. That happened next totally accurate. This is the reality is we all have is and we all have google as you pointed out in the in the game notes. Now you could use a lot of excuses. First of all the world is getting better. But they're not that much better is it is it. Popovich's is the team distracted. I was saying earlier. It's a whip chris. Broussard brought this. We have no. Who's the leader. Katie's did not really leadership guy is it. Is it allows the construction of the roster which is really not built to be thrown together and succeed well. I think we're all still trying to figure this out. I mean we thought we had the answers in two thousand nineteen when you look at the roster instead okay They're sending a mostly be in seedless roster and you're playing some of these other teams who have pros on it as well like. Yeah there's going to be much smart a smaller margin but this roster isn't like that it it has some top heavy stars with kevin durant in damian lillard. Said answer your question you could say they are smaller which was by design You could say they have been impacted by injury against. Anthony davis kawhi leonard kyrie irving. James harden You could say that But again the margin for error has simply shrunk and now when kate egos ten thirty which is what he is in these first two games. They can't they. Can't survive that when damian lillard who's is fine of an player is there is in the world gets beat. You know time. And again by patty mills or by gave vincent the other night against nigeria. They can't they can't survive that and You know they're going to have to figure out a way to team. Rebound they're gonna have to play better defensively. They were shredded All night in the second half last night in they're switching defense and You know the sort of the Company line last night was well. We're not shake so you know team. Australia in nigeria. They have close to those guys seem to be in shape. So i don't know how that explains things but the guys did look tired so we'll see if they get their legs and they start to be able to execute but i think what's clear is these games are going to be close and you could win a gold and it'll be really exciting but we've never used. The word could really certainly not in many many years when it comes to this team and now i think we have to tomorrow game for nba finals. Box and the sons You know i was saying this earlier. I don't know if our graphics guys can get it up but but phoenix is younger. More slender athletic they're there they like up tempo. It's not a big team outside of jae crowder. This was a tug of war. It would be you know. We're showing chris. Always one hundred. Seventy five cameron payne one hundred eighty devon booker. Two hundred maceio. Bridges a forward to nine deondraye. Eight into fairly slender. You go to the milwaukee bucks roster it is an older bigger more physical group of men where you got bobby portis fifty and brook lopez and even your guards drew holiday are compact and physical in. It looks like to me when i've watched the games. It's gonna be up to coaches and temple. If it's a faster series up temple phoenix if you wanna just bang around in this series if it was a tug of war would last about ten seconds so i. I don't think anybody no reasonable person thought that it would be a sweet. But do you believe that. Milwaukee has discovered a new way to play. It will make the difference in the series. Well no. i don't think they've discovered a new way to play. I think they were able to dictate the pace like you set on sunday and janas has been awesome. He has been. He's playing maybe as well as he's ever played. And this is certainly the time to do it. So that's great but for one night. In milwaukee devon booker was no good brook lopez was able to stay on the floor and when he's able to do that that really helps the bucks but there's lots of times in the playoffs when that doesn't happen in the sons had been able to exploit him earlier on in the series. So you know. I think that's where we are right now if devon booker can play the way he has played for most of these playoffs than this becomes a harder series If they can get brook lopez's away from the rim and kind of Catch him in some of the switches that that helps that helps get him off the floor but if they're not able to do that and y- honest is controlling the temple and the pace sort of the way the collided in the twenty nine thousand nine finals and twenty nineteen Actually conference finals against the bucks. You know then. This is a series that that no walkie certainly can come back and win. So you know I'm really fascinated to see what happens tomorrow. Night.
"leonard kyrie irving james harden" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"Here you the king has spoken. And i'm not talking about roy's realm talking about lebron james wednesday afternoon. Following the news at coalisland would be out indefinitely with an acl injury. The broad james aired out some grievances on twitter saying essentially. I told you so in his twitter thread. Lebron wrote that. They didn't listen last year when he said. And i'm paraphrasing here. A shortened offseason. Due to the delayed bubble restart would cripple the league stars. He noted that eight impossibly nine all stars are missing playoff games. If you include chris paul. Who's in code related protocols that's the most nba history which is actually a true thing. Chest lebron the researcher lebron onto say quote. It's insane if there's one person to know about the body and how it works year round. It's me. I speak for the health of all our players. I hate to see this many injuries this time of year. Sorry fans wish you guys. Were seeing all your favorite guys right now. Prayer hands emoji king's crown emoji. End quote a lot to unpack here. I the injuries of sucked. Like really sucked. Lebron is right. This level of bodily carnage is unprecedented. Big names have been sidelined like hawaii. Leonard kyrie irving james harden joel and be dot of mitchell. Mike conley jaylen brown. Anthony davis these are the big ticket items that people come to see and according to espn research the previous high nba postseason. History was six such injured. All-stars six think about if chris paul mrs time already fifty percent higher than the previous high mark. We still have a month ago and consider this. According to injury grew. Jeff stotts runs the most authoritative injury database in the nba over in street. Clothes dot com. We've seen more postseason games lost due to injury by all stars than we did in the previous two postseasons combined in fact as recently as the two thousand thirteen. Two thousand fourteen postseason. The one that miami heat fans would rather forget. All stars missed zero playoff games due to injury that year zero and we have as many as nine so like can someone please. Into whom janas and k d. And ben simmons and some bubble wrap like now name the asking yourself why so many injuries we know we're lebron stands on this issue. He thinks it's because of the quick restart. According to elias. sports bureau. The lakers the miami heat had the shortest offseason. Seventy one days in the history of the four major american sports nhl nfl mlb nba. That hasn't happened and sure enough. Lebron eighty lakers couldn't catch up. They crumbled under the weight of the schedule this year. And the miami heat in farewell. Either so you can see why lebron feels a certain way about the re start. Big picture. lebron is on is something. I've been hammering this point for a while now and it feels good. That lebron is now speaking my gospel. Which is this the nba schedule cannibalize it. Stars the reward for the best teams with the star players that go deep in the postseason. The ones who put more miles on their tires than anybody else. Yeah congratulations you get the shortest offseason and recovery period in the league start next season playing catch up and that's just the beginning. Nba stars travel more miles in any other star in sports. Oh and you need recovery days to heal that wear and tear fatigue. We're gonna punish your team if you do that yes. The nba has rules against dnp. Rest as the schedule is effing grueling. It's habitual three. Am hotel arrivals. Long road trips that can make your head spin. When lebron got hurt in march he was in the middle of a five game in seven nights stretch a dizzying gauntlet that the nba had eliminated in recent seasons because it was too demanding but this season well gotta get. The games in the schedule is madness. I literally had a spurs trainer. Tell me once that used to write his hotel room number in sharpie on his forearm because he couldn't remember which city are hotel. You is in at the time much less his room number. And if you hang around. Nba stat long enough. You'll hear tons of stories like these. But here's the tricky thing in lebron twitter mischief he said quote unquote vais. Didn't listen when he warned about the consequences of a fast tracked offseason. Who is day that lebron is talking about. There is it the owners. Is that adam silver in the league office or is it gasping. His fellow players. 'cause remember adam. Silver can't unilaterally. Choose the start date. That's collectively bargain with the players. Union and the players union president is chris paul fellow banana boater and godfather of lebron's firstborn son. So lebron truly has a problem with the system. That's something to take up with. Paul and his fellow players because nothing gets done without the sign off of the mvp. The system is set up this way. Because let's be honest. It makes a shit ton of money for the players and owners but the more that broken bodies start piling up and becoming the story fans will likely tune out the nba and turn on the net flicks by the way it. Just finish peaky blinders. Long-lived tommy shadowed bay anyway if the system unfairly taxes the lebron's katie's and the co is of the league than those guys need a huddle up and figure out how to correct it in other words. The king doesn't have to hold court with twitter. He has the whole court with his peers. For metal arc media. I'm tom hammer. Stroh a good holiday love a good holiday. Yeah what vacation. No no no no no no you have you have it right john so so is is vacation not a word that's used by english people or own just just it's was the first one. There's there's no other added context. It's just feels overly elaborate so like rugrats vacation is called rugrats. Holiday in britain has that side of my expertise area out about okay. How about like christmas vacation. The chevy chase movies no. It's christmas holiday. Oh is it relies. Boom i'm actually surprised by that like christmas..
