Reiko cory joseph swapped and i slept right through that were stuck right through the delong. Something was telling me. Wake up. Wake up and i woke up and i saw and i was like i said one of these videos. I've been doing. It wasn't like the bias. Harris remember tobias harris straight from a couple years ago where it happened like in the middle of the night and i woke up at like six. And i'm like oh my god. What just happened here. Like i missed it I woke up. I talked about it a little bit. And then i had a hard time back asleep. Well the headliner didn't get traded. And that's kyle lowry but let's start with the orlando magic. Because i can no longer make fun to them by calling them the orlando inertia because they traded everyone and they are going to be so bad when they next play which could be tonight. I don't even know else playing tonight that they are obviously positioning themselves. To go full rebuild. Bow and get a shot at kate cunningham. Whoever's next seat next year skate cunningham their biggest deal let's start with butchnevich to chicago for twenty twenty one. I at twenty twenty three. I and wendell carter junior and otto porter. What were your thoughts on that. Because i didn't think i was gonna get traded. And i thought if he did the price would be even higher than this and i was skeptical that anyone would offer them that kind of pressure i did. I didn't think a deal what happened. What do you think about this from either either perspective. I don't care which one to start with. Yeah i mean. I think for I thought it was going to be three ones. If you're going to get in the game for a reverse first rounder. Three first rounders. I thought that's what it was. And i guess if you're landau i guess you're quite that the wendel carter junior the pickup equates to a first round although he's got two years you know he's going into an extension year so it's not like you get clean slate with him.
Pittsburgh Houseplant Merchant Blossoms During Pandemic
"Now. This is a really cool story today. Two weeks ago we focused this episode this segment around a guy known as plant influence sir. The plant influence up toronto. And naturally we try to space topics out of bit When i was looking at all the notes for upcoming throwback thursday segments. I saw that this one was about plants i was like. Oh that's cool but let's let's push the plants back just so we're not like all plants all the time. But when i listened to the interview with abby some parts of which you'll hear in a moment. I realized she had a really good story that i just didn't want to wait for you to here. So this is the month plants. Apparently and after years of being part time abby opened her shop in january twenty twenty she opened a retail shop in pittsburgh and naturally was quite worried. Because you may recall. January twenty twenty was the last normal month of life for most of us especially anyone who is a public facing kind of business like a new retail shop but in her case she really ended up turning things around so she's got a great update along with some helpful lessons. You always hear this thing about you. Know find your niche and chief and mentioned sat in her by. She's like yeah. You always hear this thing but it's so important in a crowded space and she actually was able to find a good one so it's always good to look and say okay. Not just find your niche. But how does one do that. What are specific examples of people that have done that because that will perhaps allow somebody else to think. Okay what is what is my thing. Not just my broad area. But what is my specific plant expertise. Am i going to be the plant. Influence her going to be abby from pittsburgh or am i going to be myself. You know the best answer is probably to be yourself. But how can you make that marketable anyway enough about me. I learned a lot from abbey's interview. So let's hear some highlights from her. And i'll be back at the end to wrap it up. My name. is abby calcio knee from pittsburgh pennsylvania and i own jericho plant co which was previously featured in episode eighty three. I started back in twenty eighteen. I was working a full time corporate job in the supply chain in finance world and just wanted to do something in my free time on my own with something that i love which was plants. So i started in online houseplant shop. You can hear more about in that previous episode. And i did that for about a year and then in two thousand nineteen. Whenever we recorded that last episode i was just branching out into doing local pop up shops around town and finally getting my hands. what in selling in person instead of just online and having my husband come and help me because i needed extra help because they were doing so well Yeah it was. Just you know. A pretty stereotypical side-hustle just kind of finding time wherever you can find it so once. The lockdown happened in pennsylvania It was also very uncertain. And we no one really knew what to do however my space and the warehouse i open in pennsylvania technically allowed to stay open. Because i'm an ecommerce company. So i was actually set up pretty well for covid and the lockdown was already set up to ship customers their orders. And that's exactly what i did so honestly i don't know if i would have grown as much as i had twenty twenty. My first technical big year in business had it not been for people really wanting to have plants in their home so that they were all stuck at home and finding my business especially here locally. I was shocked at the amount of people who are willing to pay for shipping. And i was sending it to miles away because they could leave their homes. So i all my inventory was already on the website. I've still have that same shop. Affi- store that i had for the last two years so i was really set up for success. Actually which was incredible and then just sort of went with the flow for the rest of the year. Like i'm sure every other business owner has has done and i continued pop up shops where possible and doing sidewalk shops. So that was also a great way for me to advertise and shop. Affi- put in place a curbside pickup option into their interface. So from may onwards. That's how i've made most of my money as people buying online and picking up on my warehouse here in pittsburgh and i still ship across the country and that's still a great avenue for for revenue for me. I was fortunate enough to hit one hundred k. And revenue by november of twenty twenty which. I didn't expect to happen at all. I was very happy with that. It was sort of a struggle of mine. What's i kind of got to see. How the hub. Year risk going in terms of hitting six figures in nine months in a business essentially started the pandemic i. I'm pretty happy with the growth. That i've had and continue to see going into twenty twenty one one of the biggest challenges that actually any house plant or plants seller in general husband. Basing is a plant shortage across the entire country This is both in seeds and outdoor plants. I think demand is skyrocketed this year. Which i've obviously benefited from. However that's led to incredible shortages at the growers in florida and on top of that they are also dealing with the repercussions from fad hurricanes in the past five or ten years because the plant supply chain. It takes so long if you go to a store and buy a five foot tall tree just think of how many years it took for that plant ticket that large and if a thrower gets its inventory wiped out or damage that can be years of sales that are taken away from them. So my advice to you in. If you're looking to get into any sort of plant business would be to find your niche differentiate. Yourself and i know that is sometimes just something you hear about and you know marketing class or whatever but in a saturated market like online plant. Sales are or you know. Even locally you're competing with other plants stores florists and garden centers and lowe's and home depot You really have to differentiate yourself so. I focused my entire websites on helping beginners. Find their plants. Just sort of like a questionnaire like form type of thing you can go through my website and then everything is kept nice and simple on the product pages to really just get people started with house plants one of the biggest surprises and benefits. I am getting out of starting my own business is so i do the retail side and the wholesale side and retail to make people happy every single day by giving them plants which is so much fun and talking to everybody is so much fun but what i didn't know i would enjoy so much is talking to my wholesale clients and getting to know other people who are running businesses. Because they're in it with me. They no one else knows unless they're nba arena there few fighting the same fight. You are like the struggles. Of how am i gonna pay rent this month. All right my heating bill was really high. What can i do to reduce that. And and how. Am i going to get inventory and a consistent schedule talking about those problems and helping other business owners and learning from other business owners spend such a wonderful benefit of. It's sort of like your own little. Nba i feel like without having to pay all the money for an mba.

Most Intriguing Trade Deadline Teams with Bobby Marks
"To the low post podcast on a friday morning where we are six days away from the trade deadline but some trades of already happened. People are acting early. Miami acquired trevor ariza and the bucks made a very interesting move to acquire. Pj tucker but there's much left to do even on boring trade deadline's are never actually boring. Lots of stuff happens to help. Us preview are insider are cap expert former longtime nets executive. The one and only bobby marks how are you. I'm good zach. How're you. And i already had my usually about a week out from the trade. I start having nightmares in the middle of the night. And i did my first nightmare last night. That woke me up about four o'clock that A fictitional trade of paul george in kyle lowry to the nets for curry irving and i woke up thinking like how in the heck is at work cap wise but the person in my dream that i talked to said. Hey don't worry about it. Works and i was like check my phone right off. The bat at four thirty in that did not happen. That is that is really sad. I had a dream last night. That four of my friends in their families were quarantining at a former. I hop that still had all the i hop like syrup and technology to be a functioning and they were having lots of pancakes in great meals and i wanted to go visit them. This is what. I was dreaming about six days before the train then. I woke up very hungry. Bunny dream will probably more likely to happen than cholera. Paul george and brooklyn possibly. What did it before we start. What did you think of the bucks acquiring j. tucker in a deal of of minor draft assets. I would say yeah. I mean it was creative. I thought that you know the milwaukee because it hard cap and based on the picks going in that drew holiday trade really had limited options to go out and do it but they go under the milwaukee goes under the Luxury tax gives them flexibility on a hard cap houston from their front office with the draft. Picks i don't think it would have been able to do it if They didn't have that two thousand twenty second from the hardened trade. That was the box. Essentially that they got from jarrett for From cleveland jared allen. But i had never really seen a team basically swapping a first for a second and then tr trade back that two thousand twenty second and you move back a year in the draft so it was creative from from both sides. And you'll see what brand. Pj tucker we get in milwaukee because he has not been. He hasn't been great this year at all and is it just the level of interest of a houston team that has taken on major water. And do we get to see the pj tucker from the previous years. But it gives milwaukee a lot of different options as far as lineups that they can. They can roll out there with him.
Kirk Goldsberry on the growing imbalance in the NBA
"Welcome to the low post podcast and a monday afternoon in the northeast and we are ten days away from the trade deadline about. There's much to talk about in the league. And one of our best writers just framed in a very interesting way and i wanted to bring him on to talk about the one and only guru of maps former san antonio spurs executive mr kirk goldsberry. How are you. I m great. And it's good to see your face. Were almost through this thing. In by the thing. I mean of course. The trade deadline period. Yes we're getting. We're there's a light at the end of the tunnel. There's a light at the end of you wrote a great piece today That touches on stuff. I've written about before but it's very interesting and pete the piece you wrote is basically because of there's been so much player movement at the top of the league superstars changing teams more than ever before by trade by free agency by trades that are the choice of the team not always dictated by the player. There's been a lot of movement. We know that but highlighted a result of that movement that has been perhaps a little bit underplayed. Can you explain to people what that is. Yeah thanks and we've all written a piece like this. I think if you cover the nba in the last three or four years so this is just my swing at it. You did a great piece in two thousand eighteen. I encourage the listeners. there's two dozen eighteen nineteen. I don't have no anymore but anyway my angles act is the plight of the small market Small-market nba team. I give a lot of focus too on this and these elite superstar free agent migrations or trade migrations are sort of revealing to me that there are two. Nba's emerging One if you are a destination market like los angeles or new york In one if you're not like if you're a memphis or your orlando what kind of market. You're in zach. I think is starting to really determine how you build your team. If you're fortunate enough to be in brooklyn or new york or los angeles you have access to this elite level transaction. And if you're not you don't and you better slow. Cook your competitor. Through the draft in team. I should say player. Development becomes your most important building tool.
Pope Francis Begins Visit to Iraq
"Has held talks with Iraq's Shia Muslim leader, Grand Ayatollah Ali off Sistani in a landmark event for interfaith dialogue. Statement from the clerics office after the meeting, said he told the pope that wisdom and sense must have raised the language of war and Christians, like all Iraqis should live in peace. The pope visited the cleric in the city of Najaf from their mark Lowe and reports This has been a meeting years in the making on encounter between the leader of the Catholic Church on one of the most powerful figures in Shia Islam, Grand Ayatollah Ali al Sistani. They talked for around 50 minutes of the clerics home in Najaf. Ah holy city for Shia Muslims. For a pope passionate about reaching out to other faiths. The meeting is arguably the most symbolic moment of his visit to Iraq. The dwindling Christian community here has suffered violence at the hands of armed Shia groups. The cleric is seen as a voice of moderation.
Sportswriter Zach Lowe on NBA Mid-Season Leaders
"Where. We are at the midway point of the nba season. And that means. I have questions for you about the utah jazz. I say the utah jazz to you. Right now what comes to mind a whole lot of threes there making these every time you know checkup jazz box score at my brain just glances over twenty two thousand from three leg. It's just nothing there number two in defense in number three or something in offense. They do profile as championship contender. Like they're the best team in the league by record right now. Are they the best team in the league to you. While the comparison that that's become sort of commonplaces they're they're the new sixty win hawks. The team that was built to win a lot of games regular season pretty ball movement side to side movement. You don't really have the star power to compete against lebron james when it comes down to it in the playoffs but i don't think they're just sort of blake a regular season flute so the way the jazz are playing right now. It reminds me not just of the hawks as you said but also a kind of mutant version of the houston rockets simply because of the sheer volume of threes. Does that comparison sounded all right and also does that comparison than invite the questions about what happens in the postseason. If shooting a bunch of threes doesn't go as well as it did in the regular season. That comparison does not ring true to me honestly just stylistically. They're so different. The volume of threes is similar. Like they are taking a houston. Daryl morey level volume of threes. But they play so differently. The other comparison is brad stevens. I think the first one to give voice to this is to two thousand fourteen spurs which is kind of like. That's that's i don't want to say that out loud well to an mba hipster fan to an emmy afficionados. Let's put it that way kinda sewer. What does that specific spurs team. What does that evoke in your memory. It almost has this sort of religion. Level reverend yes. Everybody loved watching that team. Anybody who was at games three to five of the finals that year when by the beginning of game four we were all looking at each other. Like all my god. They're just going to destroy the heat and to compare any team to where that team reached. It just feels like talking to a pitcher in the seventh inning of a no hitter. Something like you just don't want to say out loud but that is a comparison. People are making looked at jazz. Their undoing in the playoffs in in previous seasons was day would very much like the hawks. Actually day would get a lot of open threes and not make them and you could look at that and say well. We did everything right. We just didn't make shots. Which is what. Every hawks team including that one said after the playoffs. And so yeah. The three point volume is similar to the rockets. And that's a little scary. The team that this discussion has occurred in the context of is the lakers. As you said as it must be the defending champions and so when you look at the lakers right now. I want to get to lebron specifically in a second but just them without anthony davis and how much they've struggled most recently losing to these jazz and blow out. What is that revealing to you or confirming to you about what this team needs to actually content. I think like any team. They need their best players to be healthy. I i'm pretty low on the lakers panic meter because it's not just anthony. Davis who you know was first team all nba hill assures. Anthony davis is not like some borderline all the best players in the league. Dennis schreuder is maybe their third best player. I think kyle kuzma is kind of the claim that mantle disturbing might be their third most important player. Because he's the only other guy. With the exception of some frisky alex russo games entail. Norton tucker will get you some. You know some stuff done now and then but he's learned other on ball creator the other the other guys threat to score or pass to somebody else. Yeah you take them away and it's like oh my god. Lebron has to do everything and and you know he's probably getting a little tired and even though he'll never say it the only thing that will make my panic meter go above like three point. Five on a one to ten is if we get news. At davis's injury is lingering or more serious that we thought it was then if they're healthy in the playoffs yeah. Competition in the west is is probably better this year. Particularly if denver finds whatever gear they had going in the bubble. There's going to be a lot of really good teams in the west. You could get the one seed in the west and play the warriors. You could get to play the mad. I mean it's it's just every round is hard there. But yeah i i can't i can't get too worked up about it right now. Yeah the western conference meet

Hisham Matar Reads Colm Tibn
"Heike sean lowe deborah so the last time that we were doing this together we talked about shakespeare's memory by bore. His one minus one is a very different story a very different kind of story. What draws you to it. Well story. I love but it's also. I wanted to choose a story that i had read in the magazine and remember vividly the the encounter with us and it just affected me very very deeply and a for how simple it is. It is in very subtle ways. It's about such complex things. And i think for that reason over the years since i read it occasionally fought back on it and found more and more layers than us with the stories about a man from ireland living in the us who returns home As his mother is dying. And you've also written in fiction and nonfiction about exile about the loss of a parent about estrangement. There's something in the subject matter that speaks to you or is it more in the writing. Come tobin does that very well in his work at something that he manages to open up. That's space of ruthlessness that has touched very very much. So i'm sure. I'm sure there's a connection. I also have a very slightly embarrassing our relationship to ireland and to irish literature that i think has made me susceptible to us. Don't be embarrassed embarrassing. Because when i was seventeen years old i had come under the influence of all these great irish writers felt so drunk by their brilliance beckett's and enjoys keats and and i thought this is got to be a magical place having never been to ireland knowing nothing about ireland except those writers and i made a promise to myself seventy that where i go to ireland. Must kiss the ground. And i'm not fond of kissing the ground general for that reason to stay true to by seventeen year old self. I never went to ireland. I avoid until. I was shortlisted for a prize. My first book and the price was being judged by a writer that i admire took. Healy passed away a few years back and the mc for the prize was going to be calm toibin. So i thought. I can't miss that i must go and And it was magical but to negotiates kissing the ground. When i got off the airplane. I pretended as though i was betting tiber shoelace and kissed my finger and touch the ground. I thought that's a good compromise. But you know from that trip. Really a group of irish rises dirk mitch and roddy doyle and a few other writers of took me really embraced me and made me feel very welcome and i had such a natural connection and correspondence with them that has stretched for a long time to to this day. And i think it's got to be connected in part at least to some of the experiences that irish writers have gone through sadly whether it's censorship or exile and so they felt they felt very close to me an uber reading these irish writers. Seventeen year old. You were in egypt. I was in cairo My family had left libya but seven years before then and certainly for me. Then there were the most powerful reading experience. If you want to call it does in the english language. Partly because of what i was into but also i think because of what we're
Houston Rockets reportedly pursuing Harden trade from Philadelphia 76ers centered on Ben Simmons
"I don't know what transpired between the sixers. And the rockets. And i would be suspicious of anybody telling you exactly what was offered when was offered if there was even a firm offer because i have learned mostly through the celtics. Frankly then reconstructing failed. Trade talks is a fool's errand and quite frustrating. But i i will. There were lots of reports that the sixers and the rockets were haggling over. What philadelphia would have to attach to. Ben simmons to get james harden so it was a tireless maxi plus x picks retirees maxi plus one pick was atari maxi plus matisse stibal plus no picks plus two. I don't know. I don't know here's what i know or i'm ninety percent certain that i know ben. Simmons made all nba last year. And he's twenty four years old and if the rockets wanted ben simmons day could have had been simmons. I don't know what was offered again. I don't know if there was ever a firm offer gm's often push back. Oh that was never offered will. Did you talk about he ever. did you offer it. no. I don't know what even like. When does it become an offer. I don't know. I am very confident. If the rockets wanted ben simmons day could have had ben simmons and they chose this package over ben simmons and not to be boring guy. I don't really have a huge problem with that. I wouldn't have had a huge problem with them. Getting ben simmons either. I think ben's really good. I've ordered them all nba. And i email defense last year. He's awesome. There is a chance that all these picks end up in the twenty s. I don't think it's a good chance but there is a chance and yeah. All these picks are awesome. They can get into trade talks now. Never be able to compete with oklahoma city in new orleans if a superstar becomes available but if they think this is more valuable than ben simmons. I don't have used problem with that.

Well this story illustrates it really well and it also happens with no debt and very little stress so perhaps the archetype of a model to follow no debt very little stress increasing your freedom and security stories called floridian finds fair value flipping furniture in. Yes i did have fun coming up with that title. The stories coming up in just thirty seconds in two thousand twenty one. A truly diversified portfolio needs more than the mix of stocks bonds and mutual funds. It really needs private. Real estate studies have shown that portfolios with an allocation to private real estate generally delivered a better risk adjusted return with more annual income and lower volatility over the past two decades now with fundraise. This level of powerful diversification is available to you. Fundraise has been a partner of the show in the past. But i also use fund rise. I am a fundraiser investor myself. That's not something. I am required or even encouraged to do but i have really been personally impressed with the platform so i started talking about this in conversations that are completely unrelated to the podcast. So i think they're doing something really really interesting. I want to encourage you to see for yourself. How one hundred and thirty thousand. Investors have built a better portfolio with private real estate. It takes just a few minutes to get started. Go to fundraise dot com slash side-hustle today that's f. u. n. t. r. e. dot com slash side-hustle conroy's dot com slash side hustle ryan krones inspiration for his side. Assault came from a close source. His wife jessica late two thousand eighteen just restored their running room furniture to reflect a farmhouse style. One morning shortly after ryan was getting ready for his job and call center management. They got to talking. Jessica mentioned people would pay good money for refurbished furniture. Like how much right asked probably five hundred dollars for a dining room table. Jessica set intrigued. Ryan asked her to teach him how she painted their table. She did and within a week. Ryan was restoring an old dresser. They purchased for thirty dollars off facebook marketplace. The restoration involved ryan putting on a new coat of paint which only took a couple of hours as well as fifty dollars in supplies. This included a ten dollar paintbrush amazon along with the paint from lowe's although he had no previous refurbishing experience ryan realized. He loved the task when he listed the dresser back on facebook marketplace. It's sold within two hours for one hundred and fifty dollars. He and jessica were shocked at how quick it happened. It wasn't much work for a seventy dollar profit and even better. This was the first time they tried my able to replicate or even improved results. So for the next piece ryan refurbished up to the sale price. It sold in less than a day bufton polish with success. He started searching for more pieces of furniture at garage sales auctions and on facebook. He didn't have a truck at the time so he would borrow one from family or friends in order to source multiple pieces in a single day after refreshing them with paint or stain he would list them online with each one profit between one hundred and fifty to two hundred and fifty dollars since you've listed solely on facebook marketplace and didn't advertise ryan didn't have to pay any costs for marketing is. He began to scale up. He would work on several separate pieces at once. He devised a rotation process in his garage which allowed him to apply three coats to three or four pieces a day. You got even faster once. He learned how to do. Stained wood tops. This feature increased the value of his furniture still further. It allowed him to take a fifty dollar dresser and sell it for up to three hundred dollars in fact. Here's a fun anecdote. Brian purchased one particular piece from a garage sale. For fifteen dollars. Hit looked on. Its own so he ended up selling it as for two hundred dollars not a bad return on investment for practically no work the most challenging part of this project was learning the technique of making furniture reflect that farmhouse style. He messed up a bunch of pieces because he didn't apply the paint or stay in a certain way. Sometimes he could recover them sometimes not sometimes he would distress the coats of paint too much but through trial and error ryan perfected the skill. The furniture flipping continued part time for several months. Meanwhile he was growing more and more than happy. It is corporate job so in august. Two thousand nineteen jessica convinced him to quit and try flipping furniture fulltime. He finally got his own truck and focused on the furniture. Business bringing in between two thousand and three thousand dollars a month. Although this was less than he made it as corporate job he was much more content. Ryan did this for about nine months. Also helping out with jessica's wedding photography business earlier this year. He got a chance to go back to work in call center management but with a twist. This time he found a dream job working remotely as a supervisor. This rule enables him to be close to his family also getting a regular paycheck with benefits. He's quick to note that the furniture flipping business will always be one of his reliable income. Sources it's not mentally taxing and he rebels in the opportunity to be creative. Best of all it serves as a solid backup plan so check this out. This story is a wonderful example of something that anybody can do. And when i say anybody can do like let me just kind of break this down because you might think. Well i'm not handy. I'm not either just just to be clear but it's not so much about being handy. Renovating is a lot like reselling of any form so reselling. I sometimes say one way or another. Everybody can do it. So maybe furniture isn't your market. What about computers or cameras or cars or high end kitchen blenders or upscale fashion items. These are just a few markets in which it's possible to make a good profit by acquiring items on making some kind of change or improvement and then selling those items to a new owner now. The chain improvement can be something substantial. You could be like overhauling the entire car. Let's say it can be maybe somewhere in the middle like a lot of furniture renovation is. it can't be purely aesthetic. In some cases you do run into situations like the dope from ryan where he found something and then thought about making a change to it but decided it's actually pretty good as it is in that case he paid a pretty low price borden was able to resell it for for a fantastic profit margin. So that doesn't happen all the time of course but you know as you kind of delve into this. Sometimes it does so. It's one of these things that everybody can do. If you're trying to figure out what's my next. How can i create a source of income. That is a good back-up plan for me. Something in this direction is worth considering. So i'm gonna leave you with today. Inspiration is good but inspiration with action is so much better.

"In our conference. Well I think it's interesting because swapping Chris Paul for Russell. Westbrook traded changed everything about the fabric of this team. And they've just concluded Look Russ is not a three point shooter anymore. He's not a jump shooter. We can't have two guys who can't shoot on the floor just doesn't work so we're going to just go wall in on if we have to trade big for small. We'll do that now. They're fifteenth and defenses things. Stand now. That's not good enough and I don't know how they're going to get good enough with this roster that's they're counting outing on turnovers and pays and if you try to offensive rebound against us and you don't get it Bam we're running out with Russ okay. That's great to win the NBA title. which is the goal here? You know that this ownership group is not going to be satisfied with losing the second round or something you gotta play defense. And that's where the rubber meets the road for these guys A team that was supposed to be a historically a great defense the Philadelphia Seventy sixers are thirty one in twenty there are six in the east. I don't care how awkward the fit is how much time it was going to take. How many injuries they have had and they've had some judge a certain? Now that is a disappointment. Al Horford voice some comments today that I think are being sensationalized. A little bit about how we've got a call some some people out in the locker room or some such thing. What's going to happen here? Can they do anything at the deadline or is this a wait and see how they do in the playoffs. Kind of thing Zach. Short sort of making a wholesale trade of one of their elite corps. Max Players which. There's been no suggestion. They're ready to do that. You know even Al Horford still trying to figure out how to play with that group. What is role is what they need from him? The feeling in Philly as we need Al Horford to beat the bucks we need his is. We need to be big against them. And so you look around. The periphery on their roster. The Mike Scott's the Zehr Smith's a first round pick. It's not going to bring back much and we talk about. It's a team that needs shooting. They really have missed. Jj rettig They they knew they wouldn't be able to afford to keep him. But everybody we we said editor earlier every contender would love to add shooting there. They will be outbid pretty much by anybody out there in terms of guy who can really help them. They're going join to half their their savior is going to have to be internally and what what worries you about that team. ZAC Brown uses this word a lot. The spirit.

"Plus offer sheet for him. I think it's realistic. We'll see Kemba Walker Charlotte Hornets. Boy, they're in a between a rock and a hard place. You either pay Kemba a lot of money and lock yourself into a team that isn't very good. Or you let him walk in, then it's paint time Zac. If they were going not going to pay him. They knew the neighborhood, it was gonna take the keep him and that was guaranteeing that fifth year on a deal. Then why didn't you trade him at the deadline? That's what I don't understand if they were to just let him walk here. Yeah. I mean, the noise is been all over the place. And, you know, all indications are he came out and said, he would take a little bit less than two supermax. I don't think they were ever going to offer him. It's actually good. It's a good play. I'm going to I'm going to take less. Less of something that they were never going to offer me anyway. So when you do the looks like you were Bonello it was a smart play by Kemba. He's still going to be a player who potentially is going to get a nearly two hundred million dollar deal in Charlotte one, seventy one ninety what's the number at the Michael Jordan comes to a we'll see. And I'm fascinated if that deal dubs, come to how are they getting under the tax? How many picks are assets or stretch provision waivers? What are they doing to get under? The let's move on Al Horford opting out of his deal with Boston telegraphing to the Celtics. He has a place or places he would rather play, what is the latest on Mr. L. Well, it is a source of great intrigue, among front offices all over the league. You're not agents who are trying to figure out who really has cap space and who's cap spaces phantom, because they have Al Horford slotted in their Al Horford is a smart player. He's got a smart agent. Jason glue schon. They are not walking away from Boston without knowing that, there is something significant out there. And that significant deal is probably at four years, perhaps over one hundred million dollars. There was a limit where Danny Ainge boss wanted to go Al Horford. They do value him greatly, but he's thirty three years old idea of going for four years smart play by Boston. It's the right play. And it's going to get bossom salary cap space and flexibility, if they want to go after a Kemba Walker in Kolevic, they can do some things in free agency to. We'll see. I mean if he wants his set in stone deal on June thirtieth that would seem to rule out teams for Horford that need to make decisions on three or four different players, which would seem to rule out. So my favorite Misra teams. That's that's another day. The most mysterious big-name free agent on the market, DeMarcus cousins. What are we supposed to do at the markets cousins?.

"He's a really really good player. And that brings us to Philly Philly to me is these single most interesting team in the off season. They Butler, they have Tobias, who they traded a lot to get. And there's a certain sunk cost element to that. Well, we gotta keep them all this stuff, and everyone forgets about JJ Rennick. And the noise about Philly is absolutely all over the place. What they're going to do. What they might do it changes every day. They're different players become attached to them. I have my own opinion. But what are you hearing? What is the what, what on Butler hairs take your pick? What is if you had to pick your most likely Philly scenario as well? There's two things here, first of all, they've got a one them all back to have to want to pay all of them. And then those players have to want to play with each other. Tobias Harris want to be the fourth option now he could get paid, like a first or second option. He's gonna I'm sure look at that Jimmy Butler, same thing. He's. Going to have other options. They'll Maury trying to partner him up in Houston and JJ read, if we don't talk about JJ. He is played tremendous tremendous era, where when he's not on the floor that we're his shooting feels like this is literally, the most important thing going on in their offense is that they have this guy running around. I think there are a lot of voices in Philadelphia brand is a general manager, and he is in charge, but you've got multiple owners you have other strong voices in the front office, and on the business side. And, and sometimes this conversation goes round and round there, because there isn't an easy answer because financially, this will strap this organization to bring back everybody all that money and then Ben Simmons. How does we saw the playoffs? You know, Jimmy Butler was the playmaker in the playoffs, and they weren't playing Ben Simmons down the stretch, and Ben Simmons is up for his max extension, and he's not taking a dollar less than the max and so. Those things are all playing into. What's the cost of this thing moving forward? And that to me is the most. The most interesting part is how dependent they were on Jimmy to run the offense in the playoffs and the timing of this is interesting because of Jimmy doesn't take deal from them right away, to, they start to panic and worry. And that brings us to the guy. We haven't talked about co Leonard, it seems like it's a team races that is that fair at this point. Yeah. Toronto the clippers and I think they've kept their eye on the Lakers, that's gonna look like Lakers financially. Can they get to what number are they going to get two free agency in terms of cap? Spaces Anthony Davis, going to give up that four million dollar trade bonus he still has time to do that before July six and that deal goes through, but this has been raptors clippers race. And the raptors messiah Jerry that organization all the credit in the world because when they traded form he had no intention of ever staying in Toronto. And now it is a serious consideration. I think he's I think he is really gay. Given them every opportunity to sell him and two things that have worked in Toronto. They, they sold him on health. They proved they could keep them healthy, and they sold them on winning. And those are priorities for Leonard. He has shown he is all about winning, and they couldn't have made a better case winning. The title helps it turns out the interesting thing to me is if he's going to meet with the clippers and all indications are that he is. And he wants to bring another guy with him there. Well, who is that other guy is that guy going to wait for Kawai to commit to the clippers and is that guys team going to wait for all those things to happen? Do they move on all these dominoes?.

"If it didn't come. How do you recruit players in the future of you don't make those offers to K D And Klay Thompson when they played hurt for you? I think it makes us an organization. It makes it top to go forward and recruit players in the future. I think they're coming and there's a name we haven't brought up that's been connected with Kevin Durant for a long time. And that's Irving. And that's what we will talk to when we will come back and talk Eastern Conference basketball. Maybe all right. All right. Welcome back to the silly season special the MBA silly season is here. We talked a lot about Kevin Durant. We did not talk at all in the first segment about the much rumored superstar to be going with him. And that's Irving and in kind of an unexpected twist over the last month all the noise has been about Brooklyn, the Brooklyn nets fresh off a sort of a fun playoff appearance spirited season. All that maybe getting one maybe getting both again. Katie's injury kind club that loge what is like, what do we actually know is going on with Brooklyn? And Katie and kyri, well kyri. The reason he has started his gravitated over time to Brooklyn is the infrastructure. That's in place there. You look at the role players. They have Kyrie Irving, MRs ten games of the season twelve or fifteen. He know Spencer, did what he comes in and starts, and they're not gonna lose all those games. And you look at the roster in New York, you know, listen, they would try to bring some veteran from veterans if they signed him in K D, but there's an infrastructure their care sliver, and Jared Allen, and Joe, Harris players who have shown they could team into the playoffs management coach there, those things have made it more attractive. And it's to the point now where I think the Knicks have had to start looking at other contingencies to try to sell Kevin Durant, and coming to them. Does that mean a Kemba Walker another free agent to partner with or just salary cap space this year? He's going to be rehab. This is a thirty eight million dollar redshirt year for Kevin Durant, wherever he signs. And but there's no question that New York has felt that thing push away from them and toward Brooklyn and Brooklyn, great position, here to get a commitment from Kyrie Irving. And then use that to pursue K D or, or perhaps another free agent..

"Number one, what, what, what have you heard about the injury, possibly giving Golden State, maybe an in that they didn't have before? Well, it's changed narrative for Kevin Durant in Golden State. It goes from the player who didn't get credit for jumping on board of seventy two win team. The, the narrative that he wasn't crucial to winning there. Will you saw that he was? And now this becomes something that's never been there and underdog story, a comeback story because by the time Kevin Durant would play again, in the NBA two teams have won championships that aren't the warriors, and so two years when he's coming back from an injury, when Klay Thompson, let's say Klay stays, and perhaps he's back at full strength with the injury. Maybe Klay comeback, some point next year. Now there are team. People are really for, and now Kevin Durant, is the builder in Golden State. He's not the guy who just jumped on and the adulation that I think maybe wasn't there for him in Golden State, it's going to be there. He has. He is beloved figure there for what he came back and did the injury that he sustained when he took great risk to play for that team. He's not going on the road anywhere in the NBA again. Like he did know class city where they're holding up cupcake signs and cupcake, t shirts, and Oklahoma City, no one's ever calling Kevin Durant, a cupcake again, that does change the narrative, and the story for K D And Golden State now is that enough to get him to stay there? We don't know that yet but they have a better case to make post injury than they did pre. Let's get to the, the case, number one. I think they will feel that they own the five-year max even after the injury now that was a no brainer. He's coming off from five-year max Afrin achilles tear. Everything's a little bit up in the air but. After what happened and, and the circumstances around it, I think they're going to say we just to him, the question I have for you is the question everyone around the league has has there been a breakdown in trust given what happened with the doctors commending that he play or giving the okay to play. And then the traumatic injury and then the, the noise of the doctor said he couldn't possibly get worse than it gets worse has been a breakdown in trust, because that would be he can't go back if there is a breakdown interest, if there were a breakdown in trust. You would imagine that Kevin Durant camp in the warriors would not be in communication, and they have been in communication. They have and so. Their ability to be able to talk through whatever potential issues. There are in trying to go forward. I think those lines of communication are open again. Does that happen? Does he stay? I think that conversation has yet to really happen. Between Durant rich climate has business manager, Bob Myers, new organization. I do think there's going to be point here with do talk before free agency starts, but there's no indication that they have been shunned by K D, that I don't believe. That's the case. Let's say clay, because we can't forget about clay. The noise all year has been he's gonna wait for that max offer them. I from what I'm told that max offer is hasn't been committed communicated to him that it's for sure coming. Right. Right. And they, you could offer your own free agent Adeel at any point here that five year one hundred ninety million dollar max offer before the injury post injury. If it's not there for Klay Thompson, Sunday at six one PM eastern the warriors could expect him to go out and take a meeting meetings. But the one team that I think that my information is that he would be very open going to sit down with our the clippers and if collide Leonard if they have a chance to be able to sell collide Leonard on a partnership with Klay Thompson, certainly, that's an appealing. That's an appealing sell for any free agent and vice versa now to be clear, just because they haven't communicated that the five one ninety max is coming doesn't mean it's not coming. In fact, I would be shocked given what it he has meant it organization..

"Your was the single most important reason in them being good personality wise, obviously that went that went the other way, the Philly thing it's interesting because you know, he if you have Simmons and Embiid on the floor. He's going to get the ball maximum third most amount of seconds touches, whatever. And in theory. He has the skill set to really be great in that role. He's a good spot up shooter. He's an elite defender he can bail you out possessions. Run some pick and roll all that. But then it just becomes a matter of like, you know, is do we paid them ex for that for the third? Most touches on the team you pay the maximum. We can stag are minutes. So he's the alpha dog in a lot of lineup. So, but we just got to buy Harris too. It's like, I just you pay four guys the max. And unless you're the warriors, and you have guys who are totally fine working off the ball who literally are or injury. On our fine averaging seven points a game. Like, it's just hard to make that work. And I wanted to the ownership is maybe tactical, you know, you sit there and you go, hey, let's tell everybody they're getting their money. So they don't have to worry about it. And then somebody wants to say we went back on our word before, but we did at least for the sake of being competitive and not having distractions. So we just here's the plan. Everybody just say, we're maxing everybody. Everybody shut up stop asking us number worry about it. We actually have to do it. Can you imagine? If one of these four teams that everyone has pencilled into the second round doesn't make it out of the first round who off and everyone's writing off Indiana who still third and I get why everyone's writing them off. But there's still third. They're still really good their pain in the ass to play against can you imagine what a catastrophe would be it would be if one of these teams whether Indiana beats them or they end up in a four five series and one of them uses like, oh my God. I'm with you. I have mitt in apologize patients fans expected to be over. I looked at it. Again this morning. I think they've won eight of their last nine. Their defense remains consistent. They've they've figured out a way which I kind of like because I felt like I always like Nate McMillan. And then a lot of people just dumped on it. Because it goes outdated the wrong kind of guy, and for whatever reason like they've gone toughness defense and finding ways to make it work every I keep expecting to go away and it hasn't. So I know that's annoying to Pacers fans. But yeah, I'm with you there. But I think this leads us into Boston. And we'll go back to the top teams in rock Milwaukee. Toronto. I never should ever use this as an example of I can't believe Celtics because look they're all emotionally involved in this whole thing. But I can't believe south expanse that are my friends or interact with that are going don't write them off. And I'm like how at this point. Could you have any faith in them figuring this thing out, maybe it happens? But so far, I don't really think there's been much evidence. Even when they had a really good stretch say December one on because they lose to some awful teams even with a full roster. And it just doesn't make any sense. So it's hard for me to think about them getting past Milwaukee Toronto or even Philadelphia who they do match up with. Well, I just I've watched him too much. And I haven't liked it. Yeah. They've had. I mean, we don't need to go. They've had very strange season. And every time you're ready to write them off. They they rise up and beat the Sixers and everytime rented say, okay, they found it the great. They lose to the bulls eye. Just the reason why you can't give up on the Celtics and actually agree with your friends. Not not that they're going to win the east radio. Right. Some all are is just when Horford plays like he has in the last month..

In fact, I'm gonna book, and I think they're gonna I think they're a lock to make the playoffs. And I think they they might even win a game or two again, it depends who they play wait a minute.

No one wants to play. Yeah. Yeah. You don't wanna see them in the playoffs. What's up? Listen. It'll be the first time. I think in six years like the crowds going to be going. It's going to be awesome. So I'm I'm not saying I'm just saying here for the magic not an easy out in the first round of the playoffs. They're gonna get smoke. If the seven three, okay, I've just telling they're gonna sweetie. Good. They wouldn't be five under. But here's the thing. Because it's becoming thirty. You're right. You're right. You are hundred percent, right. But it they get up for good teams. They beat in a lot of good team this year. The problem is they lose the Celtics. Good. I mean, our shelters are good. Yeah. I mean, listen, they they beat the Lakers when the Lakers were in free-fall were this. They'd be twice. I'm just saying they're going to be done against the other top teams in the east. I don't know off. My I believe I don't know off the top of my head. I mean, I mean, they'd be magic. They beat Toronto. They beat Toronto. They beat Boston like, Ron. Now Toronto obviously, they didn't have. But it's still team. They're still better on paper a better team. And it's in it's interesting. I like Orlando better than Charlotte. Is that get you excited? I don't think. Yeah. Yeah. Listen just just give it to the best team in the division. Right. The best team in the division. Tell you why. Well, his whole time terrible division. We keep waiting for the Pacers to drop and they don't. So that'll be weird. Like eventually, he just went. Okay. They're going to end up at least outside of the top four. So they'd be the five seed. Right now, I'm just desperately trying to avoid a pistons Pacers series in the first round. But all right. How you how much did you like Marquel? Foltz before he was trading Orlando. Okay. So it's not it's not that. I it's not that. I loved Markelle Foltz. I like I like the I like taking the chance on a guy like Marco foles because I don't think Orlando I I don't think they gave up a ton. And I think it's all upside. Like who cares? If you lose a pick in the twenties that wasn't even I think picks in the twenties, courtesy. Yes. So I mean have one, you know, but the hit rate is so much lower than people making out to and you're right. A team gets to picks in the twenty two. I for them. Did you will remember when everyone fell in love with second round picks to and Chandler Parsons? Because all the I I sort of fell into that trap little bit. But you're right. We have four guys we have cut year. Yeah. But you get them at less than half a million a year. But it was great. We drafted four euros home.

This is the ultimate test of the supermax. This is what it was made for this is why the owners wanted to put it in to give a small market team. Right. Such a leg up that a player this good could not say no right now players passing on it. I would I would predict if you if you'd asked me to right now, I would predict he turns it down and players keep passing on that that supermax quite Leonard could've taken in San Antonio.

And everyone says, you know, it are they picking between K D And Draymond do. They have to pick it up. My Kevin Durant might make that decision for him. He's got a lot of eight. He has all the agency. Yeah. And that's the thing. He's. Draymond green. If unless he's willing to take significantly less money, and he hasn't been inclined his clock that way, so far they can't pay for max contracts. So unless if Katie stays and Klay stays unless drains willing to take a lot less. They can't afford them. And that's that's the irony of that whole, you know of the dust up.

They won't be able to do that. In over the stretch of this next ill next max deal. The holiyay is crossing its fingers that you are correct.

"They repaid all they paid all those players who went on that late winning streak two years ago. And and now they're stuck and listen you see teams, and you don't have teams who want to take on money pass next season. They don't want to take these bad contracts on because you have lots of teams would cap space the summer, pretty good free agent class. And you're seeing Tim's who just there you're not getting your bad contracts off onto them unless you're throwing in a pick or two picks. And and most teams are in a position to do that. Yeah, we'd love to hear the Detroit sales pitch. We want to give Reggie Jackson without a pick interested in any interest in that. No. The phone line is already gone dead. You know, whereas Dion waiters amount. Even know. It's it's going to be it's going to be an interesting deadline for all those teams. Yeah, let's, you know, Detroit. They went on paid a coach Dwane Casey seven million plus a season. They didn't do that to do anything. Try to get into the postseason and like that's why they gave up so many assets for Blake Griffin. And you know, typically getting that eighth seat. Doesn't mean a lot to people. But yeah, there's a couple of teams I think you said, a Charlotte's one and certainly Detroit get into the postseason. We've already seen Utah make trade for Kyle Corby. And the west is just so crowded with with all of these teams, you know, even the clippers have kind of fallen off a little bit. And I guess they're saving all their ammo for the summer. But they've got a bunch of sort of expiring or semi expiring. Guys are pretty good players. You know, they they could get into it too. Right. I mean, it's not out of the realm of possibility. Yeah. This season has surprised the clippers eight and expect to be this good. No one did with the seasons really done for LA. It's reminded people that Doc Rivers is an elite coach when he took the front office responsibilities away and going in the free agency. I think that's important for the clippers to see what doc has done with this group and kind of take away some of the, you know, he'd been muddied a little bit with that previous group and people are seen again. This isn't a league championship coach. He's he's done a great. Job. I mean, they're they're one of the best stories in the league. Even with this slump. They play so hard and they've gotten mantras hairless come out of nowhere. But he's a six man of the year candidate. I mean, they just have tough tough players. But in our desperation index we didn't talk about the number one team. The biggest story in the NBA is what is going to happen to Anthony Davis starting now and going into the summer, and that's what we're gonna talk about next..

"So in the west right now, we have fourteen teams out of fifteen fourteen teams in the poor sons fourteen teams one the playoffs in the east. We got a bunch of mediocre capped out bad teams who spent a lot of money and would some of them would pop champagne if they just got that eighth seat a lot of potential buyers around the trade deadline a lot of desperation a lot of panic around the league, I think the team that may be best to maybe should be making. The most is Houston sixty five games last year. Re-signed Chris Paul for a bazillion dollars into his mid to late thirties recycling. Capello for a lot of money. They are now hovering painfully hovering around five hundred offered four first round picks for Jay Butler. What is this? What can they do? What are they going to do their problem right now is they're looking at this? And they know we're not one player away from anything and the player like Jimmy Butler who could have made a big impact gone his long gone that kind of players not available in. Trade talks and right now Shusen is looking at itself understanding saying we've got a lottery pick like so we're going to trade our pick to make a player who's gonna maybe just make us a little bit better. And so they're in a tough spot right now to try to find a way to improve themselves and look up and down the roster who wants any of those players twenty offered four picks. Pick players to. I just I do feel like the the few teams that are selling teams are clearly out of it. Whether it's Cleveland, Atlanta, New York, whatever. I do think one of them can get creative. And maybe make a player available. That's maybe not known to be available someone like Taurean prince in Atlanta and sue, but you can get for him. Because I mean, did they listed all my desperation teams in Detroit? They would throw a party if they got the Charlotte there did they're just under the tax. They need to get into the playoffs. These teams need upgrades, and they need upgrades badly, and you know, something is going to happen. But as you said, they also they also need upgrades, and they need to get off money, which is a tough a tough needle to thread. And and the days of teams really wanting to give up, you know, I route good first draft picks to get contracts off and less your team trying to clear cap space. Go get a big free agent. And you just have to do it. You know, Detroit. You know, they've tried to move Reggie Jackson through a couple of different regimes here. They're going to have to put a pick into a deal to do it. So far Detroit's not willing, you know, Charlotte. Same thing they have a few deals I'd like to move on. But they've got to be careful in Charlotte. Want to resign Kemba Walker? And so do they take a step back to try to take? They gotta go all in to make the playoffs unless they just give up trying and Michael Jordan. And that's how he's always run that team. He wants to get in the playoffs. And that's why they Ben this team sort of perpetually stuck in that thirty seven to forty four win window that you never wanna be in in the league. And Charlotte is kind of limited over the last few Detroit, Scott this arena, this brand new Renault that no one ever goes to a team that really would they went all in for Blake Griffin. They really would like to make then even look in the west Portland has fallen badly over the last couple of weeks. They haven't expense there over the luxury tax. They have these two really good guards. The just feels like something has to give all the Miami. We haven't talked about Miami who, you know, sneakily because they're Miami nave they've sort of sheen of LeBron and and the titles and south beach. I'm not sure they already oh. A twenty twenty one pick now to the Sixers. I'm not sure any team the league has like a bleaker long-term outlook than they don't an inex- poultry has coached them out of you know, some team. I should have won a lot fewer games, and it's kind of been some fool's gold because Eric supposed to always get the most out of a group..

"No one else is allowed on. So let me ask very simple question. Is it anyone else? Besides the raptors in the clippers the clippers might be violating stalking rules with how much they're following Colli around the NBA. Is there anyone else? Even in the race. You said it Lawrence Frank the president with the clippers. They're treating this like a college recruitment. You know, when you when you're when you're a great player, and you go on their July you circuit, and you see, you know, Jim boeheim, and my you chef skiing ROY Williams all sitting in the front row of the bleachers wearing their. Syracuse Carolina shirts. That's what the clippers are doing. Now. They haven't been at every game. But the have the president of the organization show up in Toronto in Milwaukee. Just sitting there players are seeing them other times having seeing raptor officials in a team hotel. It's unique unique way they're going about this. And if there were another team, you know, you could talk about the Lakers in LA. I'm not sure he wants to go play with Brown, but the other one that would make a lot of sense would be Philly because a defensive wing who could shoot and create off the dribble is exactly what they need. They just went out and got that guy in Jimmy Butler. And I'm not sure I want to go there anyway, but and Jimmy Butler, actually, I think the fit has been offensively better than I thought it would be early with him and Embiid and Simmons obviously and beat his sounded off a little bit. He's right. When you look at the numbers, he posts up less when those two other guys are on the floor. He takes more threes when they're on the floor. So his role has changed, but like that's life, and they'll they'll adjust their offense has played really. Well. Oh, he's made these daggers over watching them. It's gone. Pretty well. Yeah. And I think Philadelphia is going to be a great experiment in to how you put big three's together, and the kind of groups of players and people who fit together because if you look at the ones who've had great success you want championships with whether you had it was Klay Thompson in Golden State. Whether it's was Chris Bosh in Miami. That third player that third player better be a. A guy who's going to defer who's low maintenance, you have three big egos big personalities in some ways Simmons a little less. So but three big egos and Philly. How does that work? Well, it it works. You win a lot of games if you can manage it. Right. So those are the that's the story with some good teams. I'm excited to talk about some mediocre and bad teams who spent one hundred twenty million dollars on bad teams. So let's talk about that..

"And then you actually get into an interesting discussion is like is it worth it to go? Get Chris Middleton Tobias Harris or one of these sort of be list or second tier really good players and say, hey, if we got that guy plus LeBron, and we were still able to make a trade like that's not a bad outcome for us. No. And listen. And now the other question in L A now too is what is Magic Johnson do with Luke Walton if this team keeps winning if they get into the playoffs with a pretty good seed. How's he going to listen, we know since LeBron since Magic's taken over they they had been hoping to get their own coach in at some point. We saw play out in the meeting. They had early in the year where magic really. After Luke and how many games in was on. How many how many games before the tongue lashing like eight? I mean what's going on? Yeah. And so if they're going to go to genie bus and be able to sell her on replacing Luke Walton they better be trying to do it off at season when they missed the playoffs or awful long losing streak because she has been fiercely loyal to Luke wall. And that was her her higher every way, and you know, so far so far she has kept management often. They've allowed magic rob blanket a change everything there. They haven't been able to touch the wall. I never understand these teams that are good and their coach is good. And there's like some impetus to make a change unless it's one of those David Blad situations where the guy has lost the locker room, and it's sort of become a toxic situation. You just need to change. Like is there any evidence? Luke, Walton is not a good coach coached are winning. They're doing well. And I think the easiest thing. The dude is always find a coach fire the coach, and if you don't ever replacement lined up, what are you doing like the heat could have fired air exposure of? And they were. And eight and the best thing that it was not firing. If you have a good coach you gotta stick by that coach because otherwise you risk becoming the Orlando Magic. When you're on your seventh coach in six years or something like that. Aaron Gordon does even know what to do because he's played under so many systems with so much terminologies like that. That's that's easy, an easy pitfall to fall into Magic's view of a coach remains, Pat Riley, the, you know, the fiery old school. That's his view Luke Walton doesn't fit the mold of what he sees in a head coach, maybe they should hire. Jim Boylan away from the book. And then we'll talk more about the the the name. The Hugh must not be named Anthony Davis coming up. Okay. Guys, if you're anything like me, shaving is one of these things that you just have to do I like to shave every two or three days like to grow a little bit.

"But Houston, Houston falling off is made a lot of teams feel like, hey, maybe we could be upper-echelon. Maybe we can sneak into a conference final. And we'll be the team that loses their order early twelve teams who could reasonably talked themselves. Hey, why not us you mentioned the Lakers their big summer plans? Right. They have all these young guys. Who would if you is trade assets? I think Ingram has been a little bit more of an awkward fit with LeBron than they had thought. And he's not taking any threes. They thought they would turn him into a more of a spot up shooter around the run. They also have thirty nine million dollars in cap space this summer, and I think the absolute dream scenario. People talk about it's like they could trade for Anthony Davis or sign a free agent the dream scenario is that they do both and the order in which they do it is fill the cap space first with the free agent. And then trade the good stuff that we have left over free Anthony Davis because if you trade good stuff for Anthony Davis without a free agent, then it becomes harder. Mathematically because he makes so much money to get that next guy. And you have like a bare cupboard that's the dream, right? But what a leak free agent are. They getting sick which one. Well, that's the question because. This issue and Kevin Durant. Talked about recently of who what kind of young player will kind of in their prime superstar would want to play with run that's challenges of playing with the brownie cited, Chris Bosh and Kevin love taking taking steps back in there. All right. Listen, he said out loud. What everybody has been saying privately. Now, he talked about the fit on the court and how other players will fit around LeBron. But the the question and for some the bigger question is where do I fit off the court in LA with LeBron James because other star players who avoi- sauce in the organization wanna voice in how things go. They saw part of why Kyrie Irving left Cleveland was he had no voice there with management with coaching staff. Lebron and his group they run things they run the organization, they have the voice. No one's going to come in and take that away from them. And the other thing too is. Players. Learn I think Kevin love taught this to a lot of guys in kyri at times when you play with LeBron he's going to get all the credit if you win, and if you don't win you get the blame you weren't you didn't do enough to help LeBron James and the team end. So especially in a free agent class where you have most of the big stars have already won championships. Kevin durant? Klay Thompson, certainly, Kyrie Irving. We know he's not going to L A. And of course, Leonard they've all won championships. They're not ring chasing. And you see those guys looking around for comfort market having an organization built around them. And those are all the things working against the Lakers among those elite free agents it, let's talk names. I mean, Katie kind of telegraphed his intentions Colli. I think we all would agree that the Lakers are certainly not the favourite are probably a distant third at best. It's the clippers Jimmy Butler. I. I think there's but he seems to have found a home in Philadelphia. They're certainly confident they're gonna resign him Klay Thompson. I think the warriors are gonna maxim out Kemba Walker. I think the Hornets will max him out and they can offer another year. We didn't talk about DeMarcus cousins. But if you think you're going to get Anthony Davis or have a shot at it.

It's like a two months trade season, the Los Angeles, Lakers and LeBron jeans neither of which is a stranger to melodrama or at the center of the universe. Of course. It's LeBron it's Los Angeles and one of the more interesting subplots of of the season, so far is that the Lakers have actually turned into a pretty damn good team before we realized that. I mean, they could now talk themselves into after an Owen three start. They can now talk themselves into the idea that hey, maybe we're like the second best team in the west now, like even if we don't make any moves maybe where the second best team in the west, but they do feel with all their young players. They own all their first round picks going forward. They have LeBron James hood. No matter how often he says, I'm going to be paid. I'm gonna be patient is not going to be patient.

"Next five or six years to he's the he's, you could make an argument for Janas, but to me, Davis is the one that's get a maybe gettable may be gettable in two or three years whenever the timetable is that that's the home run. I'm sure there are many people who are listening to this conversation now who are regular subscribers and listeners to the low post. Podcast, which is one of the most popular podcast that we have Eddie SPN and are well versed in your opinion on this particular subject among many others. But I'm sure there are some who have not. So it is worth covering this ground either way with you. Where are you on the LeBron historically, all time, greatest conversation. I think it's, I think you'll be the greatest player of all time when he's when he retires, and and if he's not already, I would probably. I mean, again, all the caveats aside about comparing eras and rule changes and this and that. I think he's neck and neck with Jordan now if not already passed them. And then in four years, when he's, you know, he never gets hurt. So four years when he's put up four more monster seasons. I just think statistically there will be no more comparison statistically, except for the wants to sick that some people will just never. Some people will always be there Trump card, which is six. Right. And what is the rebuttal to that? I mean, you just told me that when you were a teenager you watch the game and said, there's just no way Michael will lose through and that's for some absolutely at frustrated. The hell out of me, I was like, he's never gonna lose. So how do we put that into the equation? Because we've seen LeBron lose a lot we have. And I think the degree to which people. There was a lot of revisionist history about LeBron after the twenty eleven finals and LeBron I don't know if you saw the shop who's a new show on HBO the other night. He he really talked about it at length. What happened him in the two thousand eleven finals. Never happened to Michael. Like he just had a complete LeBron had a complete meltdown. He admits it on on the show kind of in more depth than ever has before that counts. Like I think Miami had a better team than Dallas in that finals and should have won the bronze just had a breakdown on national TV in front of the world. And that led to like a lot of what he's never done anything before in in the clutch to score twenty five points against the pistons when he was like an NBA baby to make the finals, he put up and they lost the series. But you look at the two thousand nine team in Cleveland when it was like LeBron MO Williams and like name. Another guy on that team that guy ever just thirty nine, nine and nine in the conference. This ridiculous. What he had done and the two thousand eleven finals kind of race that and now people will look at his finals record is what it is and. And we just spent the first twenty minutes with this podcast talking about how the team that beat him three times a complete historical outlier, and you look at the supporting cast, you look at the the series where Kyran Kevin love were hurt the first time that plays like, I'm not sure what the argument is that they should have won any of those series and they got one and so I like to to make eight straight finals is incredible feat..

"That was the way a lot of people myself included reacted. I remember sitting worst. We're having this conversation in the studio of my TV show get up. I remember being in here that morning and saying, this is unfair. This this is now the ruination if you will of the NBA that it's unfair. Would you describe there being no risk? Use the words no risk talking about cousins? Is there no concern in your mind that they, it takes them enough time to figure it out that there's some obligation to get at working for him. He took so little money that they sort of feel some. I don't know emotional obligation to. To work with him to get it there and that it ultimately winds up being something that hurts them. See, I think there's actually like a kind of cool basketball curiosity among their players like, okay, this is an ingredient like we never had this before. Never had to do. You can throw the ball to in the post and you can just roll over everybody in there. He's a good passer, like he fit like in some ways. He's in terms of like they don't need another guy who needs a ball up. They don't want a guy who doesn't get back on defense. They don't want a guy who when he's not engage is not a good defensive player. Barca's can be a very good defensive player. But in other ways, like you him the ball in the high post. He's a great passer on the low post is a great passer, like fits a lot of what they do, and I think they're curious, like, let's play around with this. Let's tinker with this kind of a cool thing, but I and obviously he has had some issues in the locker room and other places. He's been, but they're just they're so good that if it doesn't work for any number of reasons, they can just mothball it and just say, you know what? This is one year arrangement anyway, there's no feasible way we can bring him back. So you know we have, no, it's not like there's a long play here that they have to keep in mind. This doesn't work. It doesn't work barring significant injury, which is the x. factor in every sport and always will be. Do you see any real chance that the warriors don't win the championship this year? It depends you defined by real. I think if Toronto and Boston hit everything about their teams Kawais fully engaged, everyone's healthy. Gordon, Hayward by January is like old Gordon, Hayward. The bench guys are all like, that's cool. We're coming off the bench like Terry Rozier Marcus smart. We're cool with playing twenty minutes a game. We're going to go all out. I would give both of those. Seems like a ten to twenty percents. Maybe twenty is high, but that's like that's a chance. Houston has some things to sort out. I don't think is currently comprised. They can give the warriors kinda run. They gave him last share, but maybe Boston Toronto are built the right way with lots of talent. They would just be huge, huge underdogs, Jalen rose. And I been having this fight from the moment that we launched our show in early April and that is that I say that the warriors are ruining basketball, and I wanna make sure that you know. 'cause you and I don't know each other that well, no one loves the sport more than I do. I my father. I can still. Hear him in my ear in my head as these games are being played, and I'm gonna tell you a whole bunch of things. He would have thought about basketball now that we will debate later in this conversation, but, but I wanna make the last thing on earth. I am an NBA hater. I love the sport and it bothers me that I feel like I know how this is going to end before it starts by..
