"Luke garza could actually become a real. Nba player that guy that one collegiate player of the year and yet nobody wanted and is drafted in the nba draft What ended up with twenty and fourteen or something. Last night he was. He was outstanding Again he has dow signed a two way deal. So luger's who does nobody been. It's he'll end up getting four The pistons but luca garza signed a two two way deal. He of course had a historic collegiate career at iowa. But he was you know by all accounts slow-footed big played near around the basket and so was of no use to people in the nba. And yet he made threes. He put up to huge double doubles and in their finale. Last night ends it with twenty one point and fifteen rebounds and got himself a two way contract so the luka garza dream is still alive after getting selected fifty second in the nba draft. He was good and he's fun. You know he's a real throwback but I i love the idea of becoming you know. Just the there's i went back and looked kevin. There's never been a guy like you by where this has happened work. I becomes the naismith player of the year in college basketball. Nobody wants him now. Not all of them have panned out.

There's not even close to being selected. Fiftieth or fifty. Second whatever you've picked.

"Roll more in line. Six a mad and bangor maine I was reading in the mark draft. That check is going to treat up. And i just i don't care what do you think instead of wind up doing in the draft just depends on how to drive board falls. I mean as the draft unfold. I think that check is one of those coaches that's always going to look to maximize and if he sees a player that he's got highly rated that's falling to a point where he feels like he can move up and get them then. I could see that. Scenario it out. But i don't think is gonna make these huge swing and mortgage future drab pigs in order to make it outside the box move i just i just don't see that from bill belichick. I i think he's going to continue his aggressive offseason and move up with he has to because he knows that he has his marching orders. No matter how successful he's been we understand right. We talked about a super bowl coach. You know philadelphia getting let go. It's not that bill is under the threat of losing his job but you know craft is inpatient and he wants instant results. So bill's going to give him what he wants. Just don't see bella check doing with the forty niners. Did trading three first round draft. Never serve little care quarter.

"There are a lot of great players in the nba. Betsy myself in a lot of comparisons. No i when the knows actually watching the trailblazers last night in the role in his cancer comes in and he plays he. He's very successful off the bench. Averaging twelve twelve very very good And i've sees offense score every time down the floor and everything like that. So i see myself on the black and a similar to that. I think you know. Obviously nikola who seditious in all star. So you know. I don't know if i see myself at that. Little but his ability to stretch forum playing post in that kind of stuff is a messy similar to myself in terms of whatever into the offense of the ball. I love that answer by the way and his canter played for the knicks briefly and i got to see him every day and the amount of what he can do again scoring lies. Pick and roll pick and pop all those things. It's all the same game as yours. It was actually what i was thinking. But i didn't want to say to you. Because i didn't know if you'd be amended but i mean it's kinder's made a lot of money in this league so i'm sure he would that but that's a that's a fantastic answer with that in mind then as you're going through the draft process what are you. What do you feel like you've got a show in these workouts. What are you need to do to show the scouts. Maybe what they might not have seen on the college level you. I think you're going into this. This point right now just going to work a lot. On my quickness my lateral movement continue to build that up. Probably gonna drop some weight odyssey. You had to play the you had to wait on playing now in the big time without physical on aggressive it was but now it's faster game and a more this game on the nba. United need to be a little bit lighter. So and i think that probably helped me with my quickness in my ability jumped moving so i think that's a big thing. Obviously i'm gonna continue to show how consistently good of a shooter am can stretch before from any spy on quarter. I'm gonna. I'm gonna show that all these thousand and and stuff like that. I'm just going to continue to continue to show improvement in effort on the defensive end. You'll see that's the big question marks surrounding me. I know that in some that. You know what. I'm studying film of myself you know. I'm doing all sorts of things to be able to tell myself improve in that area. And i promise that you don't want to get to a team that you know they're going to get a guy who plays anderson the second ethics after will be able to help me on that end. Yeah yeah finishing around. The rim is critical in today's nba with all the spacing. And i'll tell you this know if anybody says to you you know what we need shooters you say. Well i'm not a shooter maker. That matters the today's so one thing we know we've learned about learning about you. And we're talking to luka garza. The john r wooden award winner right now on the goodyear hotline is that you gotta explain this to me because i'm a boomer okay. I'm an old guy. Trading cards for me was the thing you know basketball cards baseball cards. Whatever it was tangible actual cards so you're the first college athlete to sell your own. Nf t card. Which i'm being told digital you. Just explain to me and the value of it and why you got into it. So i of all you. I kind of saw it as unique opportunity. You see what the nba zone with with the top. Shy thing. I thought that was really cool. And my dad actually bought the idea that move being able to do this For myself you. I saw as a very unique opportunity to start. You know going into this world now. I could benefit off my human and likeness But you to think the coolest thing about rights. It's obviously not fungible token on lines like a digital trading card like you says so whoever wins his exclusive owner of that car But the cool thing by minds the utility that comes with your if you win the auction you win my car. You get science pair of shoes with my roy. Marvelous on record You get some. you'll meet me. I think we we play horse and have dinner or something like that. You get a private meditation session with me and then a lifetime. Vip pass any camp that i do in the future. So there's a lot of utility comes so's not only that he mentioned on a car buying But everything that comes with it. So i think that's really cool thing that and the other thing about it to me You know is at your portion is going to go to numerous children which is always asked back even back to where i came from So yeah that's actually a great part of that too is also include the charity part of it as well I'm mitch resident meditation. Part of it. Because you got that james. Earl jones morgan freeman deep voice. Man scott garza after dark to be honest when we had you on the first time you probably remember while he's irby exit good friend of mine and i thought was when i see highlights of you always think of wally world when he was at miami of ohio. I'm like there's so much likeness. But i gotta be honest with you. Seen you there right now in the jacket the way your hair is thinking now. More matt dillon. You gotta give me a little pa- johnny. You had to have gotten that to come on now. I know that's actually the first time i've heard that and i actually last week. The final met wiser after the first time. I see that comparison to now no meeting person but you know very cool that's awesome. Hey it's great to catch up again. Congratulations on the award. Good luck going forward and go get him in the nba. We'll be rooting for you. Thank you for having me. I really appreciate the opportunity. You gotta look garza against iowa showed. I love that part that you did that. Cause you wonder that right. This guy's had all the accolades and what else What else do you offer me when they talk about them in the nba when they talk about in the nba. It's like that's the first thing that you get such a dismissive like second round. Pick like trying to do is killing it in college. And you took me that dismissive. And i was thinking and his canter. And that's where he goes and his canter which has been in league for ten years. Jay walking double double absolutely going to be value for that guy in today's nba and a guy. Also the criticisms can't well you can't defend what what what can you do. His job do love. It would be great to see what kind of what kind of success he can have in the nba. And and who's going to give him a chance and you know it's funny all the drafts. Oh the draft mocks. They haven't gone to the spurs which of guns because they'll get 'em an l. tournament too when you're doing an interview. Are you doing effort. Espn jay z. Are you doing msg for the new york knicks. I'm just curious. I'm just curious. Why do i do a reconnaissance. Luca garza trying to figure it out to the last three games. The knicks have been out rebounded by seven rebounds a game on the board real value. Some real value for just saying my panther just so happened to play for the knicks. Once upon a time gotta could help go right up the scouting report when we get good kid already was upper charity already making his own kind of money by the way love. That look into pitcher pitches better than some of the others. We had to work for man signed autographs kicking. Was a jerry jeudy imports. Because he knows what is exactly yes. We asked all right. We will try to keep the show intact that we take it into the weekend but coming up. We're going to play another game. Would you rather we did this yesterday.

"Chris canyon for the guys so keyshawn will be back on monday. Zuma background monday. Jay williams wife nicky celebrating the birth of their second child. The boy. it's a boy's congratulations to them. As he'll take some family time right now. We'll hold it down for the guys. We want you to be part of the conversation. Eight eight say. Espn eight seven to nine. Three seven. seven six. Hey chris you just heard a little bit. There's a quarterback story in the off season for the nfl. I it's really been a big story Not just the movement of the players but also what's going to happen at the very top of this draft and we know number one we we figure number two as well number three the forty niners move off and what they do at number three. It's wild the names of course. Trevor lawrence zack wilson. And then it's mac jones really mack. Jones really justin feels bar and i have a caller on our show which is a new knee noon eastern on every weekday on. Espn radio and we have this caller now every day. He's called an everyday he is. He's convinced that justin feels is going to go. The he thinks number one while he's crazy number one. Yeah he calls. Meyer told this show. And he's our show every day same thing he's like. Don't be surprised. Myers takes some fields. And it's like like yeah that's really believe in just feels a lot they really believe. There's so much momentum about his potential but yet you don't feel that even our nfl insider all of them had to take breath. Yeah i know it's hard to believe that that. Nfl teams. Just don't see him that way. Now listen to this from kurt warner. He was talking with greedy yesterday and he said this about justin fields. He's kind of up and down with his ability to process or how quickly he processes information. There's times where it looks like. Man he really got through that quickly. And that's really impressive and there's other times i'm wondering. Okay why is he not working through things quicker so you could just see the the criticism of fields and the hesitation for teams about him and we've seen in mocks that he has tumbled And then yet when you when you see the rankings for the position field is up there like right behind chevra lawrence as far as talent yet teams aren't as sold on him. What do you make of that. yeah. I don't understand it i. I respect kurt. Warner's football acumen you know. He's he's watching tape too and he clearly sees something that concerns him in terms of justin fields in the mental aspect of his game. When you look at mel kiper when you look at our very own. Matt miller both draft experts. They got justin fields right behind. Trevor lawrence in terms of the prospect at the quarterback position. So when i looked at justin feels that allows the last couple of years. There was a lot to like in terms of the physical attributes that things that he's bringing to the table. And what i can't understand is in this pre-draft process. He's kind of been picked apart to the point. That people are suggesting now he might be the fifth quarterback mazing initial draft class. I i just. I can't fathom that. I don't see that i still think it's it's up in the year with the forty niners are going to do with that third overall. Pick keeping in mind that they are expected to attend just fields workout. That he's gonna have april fourteenth. Why would they smoke screen when you already know who's going to what what who smokes agreeing already know who's going to do you already know. I mean listen i understand. The jets are going to take a quarterback. Just traded sam darnold. Who they're they're going to take a quarterback. I think we have an idea of who they're gonna take that too. But what i'm saying. Is this if your cow shan and your john lynch and you're gonna take this big swing to move up to the third overall pick clearly. You want a quarterback. There's no question about that but it feels like if you're gonna make that big gamble to to settle on mag jones being a guy that you would make that decision for to me just doesn't fit because my jones is your your prototypical pocket passer. He's he's the guy that that's going to be five yards behind the center and he's going to have to win from the pocket and that's he's not the guy that really has that potential for those. Those second reaction plays those off schedule. Plays which really leads to yards in today's nfl game. So i just. I look at an essay. I i don't know. I don't necessarily see the upside imag jones that i would see in adjusting fields or trey lance. Now that being said kyle shanahan you have to trust what he what he wants to do with that pig. Just because of what we've seen from them both as coordinator and as the head coach of the forty niners but to me. The forty niners are taking this huge gamble. It would seem like if you're gonna make that big risk to move up to three then you would take home one of those prospects with a huge upside. Yeah i mean think about lynch think about shanahan. They have job security so they. They're not making a draft. That has to be safe for their job because at the end of the day. They have a contingency plan. Will have the former top ten quarterback on rosser enrolls in as well What baffles me is listening. Kurt warner i'm not gonna hear it see here throw darts. Kurt warner kurt. Warner's a hall of fame player. But i wonder what kurt warner. The talent evaluator how he would evaluated his self rhyming. 'cause he went to deliver groceries in the grocery store today. Afl and then came into the league and became a hall of fame quarterback right. Today's league Is now everybody wants to cheat the process right. Everybody wants a finished product. Nobody understands how to teach anymore. That's why when judge. Joe judge came in last year and his press conference. How how impressed i was. Because you're trying to tell me that you expect a nineteen twenty twenty one year old kid to be a finished product. You're you're you're you're trying to get yourself off the hook and not do you're damn job which is developed talent in groom these young players to be young men to eventually be veterans in his game and create an environment culture. Where guys listen if you can't process. Well how do you get to that level. Because naturally at his core he's more talented than jones l. Let me let me counter that because first of all. You're referencing joe. Judge talked about building a s- coachee set of teachers. Zack which he wanted to do that. A lot of times in the coaching profession. You don't have enough time to teach. That's why. I think coaches want to get past that because they feel like enough time to teach this guy and i'll make him good for the negative job. I agree with you. I'm just saying. I believe that it's the mentality that level in this case it doesn't that doesn't make sense because they have a veteran quarterback in front of him that they can allow him time to develop. This is different. This isn't the jet situation where they don't have a quarterback on the roster right where they're bringing a guy has a play. They have the ability because they've done a good job building his roster young and coaching them up. They had the ability now to get a guy that can wait. And let marinate. Why would i want to like you know. Date can't say that you know what i'm not going to do is be arousal bidassoa parts come a long way now. He stops himself about self edison cylinder seven right and i'm looking at this guy here. He still has a ten. And i'm i'm supposed to be guru. I'm supposed say hey. I know how to unlock this player. Right and that's your job as a coach which is supposed to be a teacher right so a lot of these guys are trying to skip the process and they wonder why they had these short term success. If you gotta find the hidden gems and you got to find a special how do people feel not a day. Pass on the watson out of people feel like they missed out on a rainy mall's people feel that they missed out on tom brady right. Tom brady wasn't a finished product he had to be developed. He had to be molded. But if you do the job instead of worrying about your job in the short term you can have a job in a career where you not only launch your career for ten to twenty years. I built jake but you spawned the the press apart about bill. Belichick isn't the What he's done is the bums that he's got paid. We think about charlie. Weis still getting paid like. He's still getting check. I'm not only charlie weis above. What i'm saying you know what i'm saying is he. Wasn't bill belichick right. But because he can't tree he's still getting paid money and look at all the other coaches that spawned off of that because he dared to be great and he's all about teaching and developing because that is long term success. So when you come in this game you wanna come and grab the bag real quick. You'll coach or do you want to have long success. It'd be considered one of the best teachers of all time. I'm with you one hundred percent bar. I mean i don't..

"Guys say recently like you coulda went out at worship. Could've made a ton of money in europe could've imagined the way it is. I'm you made a real check in your your my brother coaches overseas. I mean euros. Seven forty to step out. Shoot that runs. The court competes like hell but you came back to college as people think for nothing but it really isn't for nothing to win and have that experience like is that it likes so for all the people saw. These guys are exploited. The euro feel exploited. Because you could laugh. Man made money. But you want to have that you like whether it's the seer jersey up in a drafters seat. I found a four banner. I mean like what was you know for me. I think a little kid. You obviously dream of playing in the nba. But for me as a kid. I always dreamed of playing on a great instability tournament team. Great Just be a great college team and i think not having the chance to do that last year with our our tournament team and seeing the potential what is could be That just kind of outweighed. You know any sort of money. I i feel i feel really confident in myself and i feel like whenever i have made that decision to go the next level i feel like i'm gonna make it just works hard as i can but no. I love cops basketball now i really do. I think it's awesome obviously You know different people think you know different stuff about being exploited. I really don't have too much of an opinion on that obviously agree that athletes probably should get paid. But you know. I love playing college basketball. It doesn't it. Didn't really matter to me that i wasn't going to get paid and sear. I wanted the opportunity to make history with you know my teammates. My brothers and i just wouldn't have felt right leaving And not finishing my career here with a with a potential of the team that we had. So you know that just actively mighty mexican lee my coaches you know. They invested so much to me that it. It didn't feel right leaving without kind of finishing what i started here So yeah that's cool. I just followed you. Played for truckers l. Charles lefty yoursel. So you've got to have a good lefty story. I know coaches at around at some point in your high school career. And i know he and he picked up the phone and call you or say something to you because one thing about coach. I get calls from about once a month. I know he could tell a story or give advice. Yes i mean. I would I've always be working with churches out. We'd be in gym by you. Know at some point in the in the workout. Always we'd be doing something and he'd be thinking of something to say any just called less and less he didn't really know how to work facetime. So lessees wife was trying to head to the phone or he's the bad. You're trying to explain to me how to do a talent one of like one of the guys. He was coaching and how he was doing. The drill in it was really really funny but no he was it was all always you know So awesome ahead that relationship. He called me. You know before You know i was going to work and some people are gonna come. Watch me and you know. His biggest thing was. Don't forget your shoes no he. He had a guy who was gonna go to ambulance worker and forgot shoes. The team ended up not signing and so he was so funny had source for days you know he told me a bunch of things in you know i got coach. Zell always told me the heart. I worked Again i know that's left equal and that's something that's you know very dear to me in them that holds you know over my head. All the time is just eight. If i continue to work hard. I'm going to continue to get lucky Really been glad to have the family of people that have helped me with this game in chuck and left. You're a very close. It's your current coach. Now follow me. When when i was playing in indiana for bob nate he would call you over yellow. Okay like crazy and we were always told like men. Just stare at like what he's yelling just stare at. Just don't lose contact and i used to Luca i could literally see as he's yelling at me. Doc it's you know good. Mother sees eyebrows growing while he was me. It'd be like so i'm staring. I'm like damn think. I win coaches yelling at you and the face is red. And he's on franson twelve. What are you thinking you know. I'm i'm really trying to listen to what he's saying you know rather than the way he's saying you know you're exactly right. When i was a freshman i was told to look directly at him and not away from women. I've seen what happens when people look away from him and he just gets worse but space getting redder and redder at rather as yellen yes. I think that's how how mad he actually is is the rhetoric. His face gets with yellen An i think that's that's that's when you tell when you really messed up but no i think the best thing about it is just i just try to listen to what he says in over the years. I've gotten really allowed better at it in not played. You know for some coaches who have failed in the past in. So i was used to when i got here and the best thing about coats even when he's yelling you like that added especially fresh sophomore year. He's obviously gonna call me quaker. Whatever the case be but he's gonna put me right back in there and trust me to continue to go out there and do my thing. So it's a growing relationship right. I mean i probably doesn't have. I mean i'm guessing less. He's trying to make a point to somebody else. I guess he doesn't have to yell at you much now. I mean he definitely still yet. But i think when i was a freshman i was making mistakes. Messing plays or or whatever the case may be But now that i've you know. Learn the offense a lot better. And i've become a higher. I q player you know. I'm not found people with ninety four three from the best deal. He hates that in in in in other things. like that. so I i've just grown smarter to make mistakes that you know if he's going to yell at me it's it's you know if if i took a bad shot or something like that because i mess up a play or or do something stupid because of that. I really try to make smart. Plays all right. Here's the dan dockage line. Because daca has is own world way he perceives things. Imagine no one's listening to this. This is what he would say. Normally right and this is not a national podcast or not listening to this as a head coach twenty two years. I know what i had. Those atobidiro experiences players would go into the locker room and they would laugh their ass off on something that might have done in practice. I might have like went to kick ball. Slept or i might. You know whatever it might be. I mean there were out of body experiences. Dan had many that abide experience. But i know eventually you go back into the locker room. And sometimes it'd be coaches ripe. We need practice harder bubba but holy did you see blank. Lawsuits on yeah. Everybody's i got a question. Patrick.

Passer that all of a sudden you have to play him which opens up lanes for those guys to play in I think love is getting better. His decision makings getting better. So i can see carolina's a second weekend team but kentucky. I think they win. The sec conference championship tournament. I would not want to see them in the sec conference in same thing that is is that he's got seven man rotation and he basically had talked me they had meetings with everyone said look. Here's the way it's going to be and I think the other thing. He didn't talk them. She basically said if you don't shoot the ball you're coming out of gay out what you have any hesitation you get no shot step into shoot it if you don't use the chat you're coming back because he's really trying to empower he. Paradise day jackson. It looks like he's playing a different level absolutely different level. They is making big and in. Tough moments Boston's playing with owed more pop to his game. So and defensively and defensively They've been pretty good all season but they'd gotten better defensively because their offense has gotten better and you know young teams for sure. Your defensive intensities connect jolla. let's face it. Their defense got better. Not pitching it all over the place and making eight thousand turner's 'cause when you make an eight thousand turnovers in an offense is played ahead yet. It's hard to. It's hard to be a really good defense team. So yeah i think they. They've got two games left got they've got all miss who's playing really. Well had a great win last night. And they've got florida if they can get those two wins in florida really good yesterday. Auber team that. I'm interested to see what we've cooper does but i think kentucky's good what do you think of those gaps. I taught takes your location again well. I'm struggling. I went from the chess. Set to the bar to my little studio here that we all have. I don't wanna play can talk you. Because i feel like kentucky is going to decide and they've already decide. Were angry like i see them playing with a little pride and when i read comments that they've made i see that as well same thing with What i read out air henry by michigan state. I mean frankly. I think kentucky if i were going to say to you the only team that i would. Let's take it in. Betting pardons the only team that would make a favorite over kentucky. Right now in the sec would be elbow yeah. That'd be it like would you. Would you take tennessee over kentucky. Now i'm in tennessee. I don't think this is i. Think florida over kentucky. We'll find out this weekend. I know i've look to me. No i wouldn't right now I think that guards grown up a little bit lurk. Let's do this with the league's would you take right now. would you take well. He wouldn't take yellow. Annoy over michigan. State is at mississippi. Just beat illinois right. I take will house take in over michigan state right now. That might be the big ten like. Here's the thing one game. I'm not down on illinois. Didn't play well yesterday. Like i'm not saying down on. And all i'm saying is high i got i got i man here. I'm just thinking bigger that as a thing you could hold it up on. He needs a stand is what he needs. Good now i know things. I think you're tough. I mean get a couple more. Xm radio hits. You'll be fine all right. Got down on all right. I'm not down on beat pretty good most of the game yesterday. Yeah that was it like we hit them. Your higher michigan state now down on illinois. Thank you you've got your good. I'm really high michigan state. When i see bingham come on. I think that's why i let me go this route. Acc duke who right now in right now in a tournament setting is better than florida state. That's it is is. We're going to see with north carolina coming up right. Yeah got scarlet. Alaska season as always. Yeah and i- carolina carolina carolina compounded inside of mark williams deals with that post. The post actions a great game last time in camera. It'll be interesting to see how it is absolutely the deemed home. It will challenge carolina's guards. I mean Caroline's as good as carol blah rj. Davis and those guys take they take basketball. They're fine if you're not good all right. All that analysis is great. And you know. I get paid for. I know like we all counties teams. Right i did. I'm like michigan. State was done in fact a man of bold statements. I'm a matter of common sense. It's so funny i did. A game was purdue you'd state after the game charles barkley. Text me when i said on air like they showed michigan state schedule and i said well. We're the winstone for my said. They got no more where right now. So barkley texts me. After the game. He goes with another game. And i'm like i know they stay. You know next thing you know but so we. I just counted them. But my point is when you look at projecting ansi doubly tournament or you look at how teams are playing right.

"To me just a development taking a grad transfer from columbia and smith. Who's been phenomenal. All right taking hundred dickinson and having a big guy that wants to be big i and play to his strengths and not try to do things he can't do. I'll tell you what the night dude works in the post like view. I went yesterday being a day before yesterday. And just watched his baskets utah by colt searching when you went to boggles high low and you hook and seal and search across the lane. That dude fights for position. I used to have a say. If you're not gaining position you're losing position. He is always working to gain position. And then if you double him like a house. They doubled him some. Say one thing. He's spitting thing out and make really really good decisions but their spacings really good off. The bubbles also michigan. I i agree with. But i don't think ohio states far off either. I think how states gotta be in the conversation as well Think the really good. But i think there is a level that i felt like in that entire house state michigan. Michelle have search cray. A high end offensive game ten. If they're still down. I felt like they were hanging up. Doesn't mean they can't play with them of course they can. They're very very good But i just saw different level when need be and let me go to something else. Relative to john howard and his program i think player development has been great. I think isaiah libbers has been terrific. I there's no way in hell anybody can tell me franz wagner. I got over here. But he was going to be a defender and he is a terrific defender. Sometimes we only look at improvement based on offense. We said all right offense look at his game is so much better. That's that's individual work. None no a little bit or a lot of individual work is getting a player to believe. He could do things that he can't are didn't think he could do. And franz wagner scarred. And then i look at davis off the bench terrific. You know what the most interesting thing and this never happens in college basketball among the most interesting things in the I'll state michigan game. Set was the words. Xavier simpson were never mentioned any college basketball. We always go back to. Who wasn't here who laughed. Who's not mike. Smith has been that good. Like mike smith has come in and given a ohio michigan. Everything that xavier simpson did from maturity standpoint from a on-court sense smart standpoint defensively but he's added ability to go get twenty. I'm telling you you know this. And i know this role. He's talking about the past. Who's not here. I hear the words age. Essential one time. Man is at a testament the might smith and john in that entire crew eight straight. Let me ask you let me go another. We mentioned early in the season center at who can take over for xavier simpson's leadership because the things. He did defensively on the ball on the things he did in the end. The games defensively and in terms that running hook and coming off those ball screens. That michael smith has been. He's on the lives. I don't know if you've ever had a chance to talk delivered but libbers is the exact guy you want on your team as an older guy to things really smart like really small and the other thing really enthusiasts like i went up to him the only time maybe we did a game on the road at maryland for their game and he was on on the side stretch and i smacked him in the stomach. Just kind of tap you know like you and just laughing just you know just the greatest. Just a great collection guys. I don't see that doing anything but being incredibly difficult to be in march i do wanna get to one thing when we talk about blue. Bloods okay where are you at two schools. And i think personally eras are. Virginia's moved into blueblood stats. where are they and worse carolina. y- virginia to me. Is they have a nice team. Then the lead eight. I'm not sure they're going to get on first weekend big. I've nice team. They make you had to see. Defend the whole floor because they invert their offense key. Clark can disrupt some defensively on the ball. I think people that are making him. Try to score. Do the right thing But they're so relied on trade murphy and j half and sam houser making An inverting and pop out that that that's a concern. I mean that's just a concern. I'd like to see one of those guys. Get maybe in the mid post area of rip go so they can get to the foul line a little bit. i thought they got really stagnant. Know they're in between run mover blocker and running. What i call read react which is just a form of five out motion. But they're to me they're really stagnant. They're not as good as screwing. They're not as good cutting team The the ball gets stuck. Kia clark's hands many times at the end of the clock and he's not tied jerome. Who could see over the fence. Make a player or score himself So i look at them as a nice team like matt. Eighteen bad can get to lead eight carolina. Carolina's intriguing me. Obviously it's so crazy. Virginia absolutely smacks him. I thought it was brilliant. Roy williams scheduled at northeastern game. Because chance to flush out that. Virginia game get up and down the court get out in transition. Get those guys gaming. Some confidence spent because i think the basically their hearts out against virginia and then i cared over against louisville. Who was coming off. Pause that was nice and saw that carolina run all season. I thought that was the best. I saw him Defending terms of impacting. The game defensively getting into people like carolina used to do. I think that kirwin walton is the difference in this team. We talk about the bags and the bigs great we talk about the efforts. Rebounding is no doubt about it. We could talk about post post basketball. And i agree with all that..

"This season. Well you recently got a chance to sit down with garza. Virtually of course to get a sense of why he plays the way that he does first of all. Can you paint a picture for us of his basement growing up. Yeah i mean stacks and stacks of vhs tapes an old school beginning and old school sort of method of study for a guy who's got that old school post game so other kids were watching nickelodeon basketball tapes. It was a little mini. Who down there on the on the wall in the newest tv with a bunch of tapes and tapes on wall So he would put the vhs tapes in start watching some of these nba greats. And then just go start mimicking the moves on this nerf hoop in his basement in the dc area kill will basically watch matic definitely wrote off on. I think it was learning almost by most this. It's taking what he saw the fundamentals of these great hall of fame. Mba post players and trying to implement that in his own game or are you a little bit surprised that two year old knows what. A vhs is. Let alone owned a vcr. I think that goes to his dad. Frank garza i mean. He was a former professional player. And look the garza's are a huge basketball family. I mean you can go to uncles and cousins. They've all played the game. The game is almost in his blood. And it's not a cliche to say that like that's what is family has done generations after generation. Now luca just sort of reaps. The benefit of guys hoarding. All these vhs tapes. From the past. Brian during your virtual film session. You and luca garza watched some of the players who influenced his game the most. Let's start with the first player that you watched the legendary hakeem olajuwon. What did you learn with team. I think it was all about the footwork. There may not have been a better footwork. Big man in the history of the nba basically reading was beautiful. Beaches signature shorter beat of with quick key allies on getting from the elbow to the basket and one dribble. Now it helps to be a super long big player who can take huge strides but it also takes a lot of footwork elite footwork to drive on a great defensive player of that era and get to the whole cover fifteen feet and just a matter of seconds work to begin to move. You got to create enough space with their jewelry spin or whatever you're doing to be able to get it off because then after that sold budgets making down download the on there's cars audi spun downhill. He just took solomon young with him right to the bucket. Bj off now. There's also of course we know the dream shake the ball fakes. Lucas says he's probably not at that level where he could use the ball fakes if he tried to. He's pretty sure that most guards would take it away from. He's not keen level that way but he did say look. The defender reacts to the ball. Just go in there and just talk is. You're not a guy to be able to get a shot in a different way. These double figures. Detective that happens top. Pick that up to show the defender the ball. Get them on skates a little bit going the wrong way. And have your counter move ready. But so between the footwork and the ball fake that was really elemental to what lagarde's does oppose score today. We'll next up is a name. Some younger fans might not remember quite as well but a hall of famer in his own right jackson. What did garza take from. Vhs tapes of sigma. The man has a move named after him like he created a move. That to this day is called the sigma post. I'm doing the sigma. i'm facing now. I can either pump fake because this guy is bigger than me or drive by but just so right it is the ability to reverse pivot face up and look at what the defense is giving you that way in order to operate from there now with sick by the way he made it famous was he reversed and basically immediately shoot. Keep the ball high. Read the defense. And a half a second and papa jump shot over the top of the guy in front of gops it off. The map faces up and goes in the sonics by to the time is number one movies in abilities create space about driven. The ball is perfect for me. Because you know. I i don't i took the ball down that much. You know know you can make four mos know with the sigma without dribbling. The ball and that was what i saw abuse guards in position again. Here we go guards and johnson off the face. Beautiful it's virtually indefensible because it's a quick pivot and a quick shot and if you rep it out. Tens and tens of thousands of times. It doesn't matter how tall you are long. You're knocking block that shot one. Finally we get to kareem abdul jabbar. He's obviously synonymous with the skyhook. One of the finishers of all time. What did garza learn. From all of those watching kareem. The keyword there is finisher. We're watching eclipse guyuk. You know we went back to before the skyhook became that legendary shot that everyone associates cream of you'll bar with y- forget the guy could finish in every way no matter what the whole it goes to coming across. I want leaning on a bit. Your touch in the lane even extended out to like the free throw line was unbelievable for a guy that size and that's what really stood out to luch was just the importance of finishing just finished with contact through. Contact these even without contact with different shots. So i think that was something he was. Good business. not all brute force. As opposed player i think with kareem cinder back in the day he learned. I've got to work on my tops entering spins baseline jumper. Good garza gifts. Their first lead the. There's one on one coverage. I don't care who's guarding him. You feel like two points is gonna win. Sued the double with also lagaras. Obviously not on the level of any of these is but is it fair to say that when you watch him play. His game is sort of a frankenstein. Allies -gen. Sigma and abdul jabbar. I wrote in the story. That lagarde's is in a constant state of becoming. That's what it is. There's always gonna be somebody throwing something at you that you need to answer for. He's gotta have all those tricks his bag. The only way to do that is to study and to keep learning. No he's not gonna probably guy scores thirty five thousand points over the course of his nba career but he can still take elements from all those players then and now and then to his game and make sure that he can be the most effective and efficient and productive. Score that he can be will. He had up to be the grant some of these players. Maybe not but his game and the sort of diversity.

"I mean you talked three NBA off some. Yeah. I'm not I I think I just come on and execs and Scouts and settings out. But yeah, it's it's still it only takes one to follow along. It's not going to be a situation where if he goes 27th. I'm going to have my hands in my face and yell like Macaulay Culkin in Home Alone, like it's a doable scenario. Like he could go twenty-five to I think you had like the forties. I think that's pretty reasonable. Honestly, I will be surprised if he gets Beyond 50 straight up like again, I don't even know that I will have him in the top Fifty Dead. Guess that I probably will but it's not like a certainty necessarily that I will have him in the Top fifty. I would guess he'll be somewhere between 31 and 50 for me. This is this is a pretty positive segment. It started with the the dignified tell line and we're not even totally disagreeing we're saying there's some upside in the actual place. He gets chosen were credited for everything you've done for college basketball. We're positive here pause of people like it's a more complicated situation. I tweeted this like when I saw the Luka Garza discourse starting on Twitter on Tuesday America in America, I was like look this situation is much more complicated than anyone's going to give it credit for being because Luka Garza has a million options that is disposed off because of the Bosnian passport. He is one of the most decorated celebrated college basketball players of the last decade he is also just not really a fit for the NBA, but he's a fit song. Of if you play a drop coverage scheme and need spacing from the five like if I was the Bucks and I had a picket 45, I would want him to fall to 45. I would want to take the shot that he can play with in my drop coverage scheme same with Portland like Portland is an interesting fit for him. There are real genuine teams out there. That should consider him high above them where I'm generally going to have him and that's why the idea of like the big board right of prospects in a lot of ways. It's kind of silly, right because every team should have bought a very drastically different Big Board based on the scheme that they run based on the Personnel that they have Etc the idea of picking for only like the best players I think is not a great place. But at the end of the day the odds are the Luke Garza is probably not going to be like a difference-making NBA player because it's just really hard to do that at his athleticism log. Like Nikola jokic is I would say even considerably more athletic than Luka Garza. Yeah different. Yeah, like just more fluid and can handle the ball and off like has real dexterity and like hand-eye coordination and like Vision with the way that he passes and it's it's just a totally different skill-set, but I think he's also just a better athlete with Luka Garza is especially this year. Like if you've seen much of the Nuggets this year, I haven't watched on NBA now, so he actually looks athletic and that's not to say that like, I don't want to say like he looks at home by NBA standards, but like Luka garage Nikola jokic his clearly added some quickness this year and it's part of why he's like making an empty people's right. Now. I think like he's gone from home super Elite player to like potential MVP candidate and I think it's in part because he's quicker. He's just like a better athlete than Luka Garza like that even even the comparison falls apart in terms of athleticism, I think. Which is a concern..
"luka garza" Discussed on Game Theory Podcast
"Unfortunately, like that's guys are just limited and get the absolute most out of what they can do and Luka Garza is one of those guys who deserves credit for getting the absolute most out of what they can do, but I've just got I've got real concerns. Are you off your problems? Right so I can you stay on your floor? Can you stay on the floor? Because one scale is so much better than everything else you give up and I do want to say that I did cheat a little bit because 2017-2018 first-team All-American wage was loaded DeAndre and Marvin Bagley Jalen Brunson Devonte Graham Trae young. There's some good players there. Here's the thing like buying right now. Okay get last night looks like 19 minutes. Like he's legitimately bad like jock landale was on that second-team All-American team. He's in the NBL right now, and it's like a great NBL player and it was dead. You're only guy for a couple of years. But like that's the level we're talking about. And here's the other thing with Luke Garza if he is like a minimum Center and I think that at some point, you know within the next five years. We're going to hit a point in the NBA where most of the centers in the league. Let's say over 15 of them are probably going to be minimum contract guys became is teams are starting to realize that the replacement level four centres is higher than any other position you can go out and you can find centers that are valuable for lower-level deals if Luka Garza is a minimum level player. There's going to be offers potentially exceeding that on the European market for him because he has I believe a Bosnian passport like you can essentially have him on your roster and it won't affect your roster limits in many cases over in those European leagues, which means you can go out and get other American Players Club. Can just kind of expand your horizons in terms of how you can build your roster over in Europe. So overpaying for Luka Garza on the European market and it might not be an overpaid because he frankly could become one of the five or six best players over in Europe. That's not like a bad idea. Like there is a real chance that he could make a million dollars million and a half dollars a year under a different tax scheme over in Europe where it's just more valuable for him to be over there. So and he can have like an incredibly successful like eight figure career over in Europe if he's that good. So it's it's not as simple as just going like this guy is like just not a good professional basketball Prospect. He's a great professional basketball Prospect over in Europe. His game just doesn't really benefit where the NBA is going and that's okay. Like it's it's okay to say that it's not a situation where your your New England Brethren over here Cal log. McNamara who I guess is like a Providence Providence beat writer had decided to chime in and goes totally agree with Dickie V the mock NBA draft guys who talked to know exact since lat Luka Garza in the second round need to be dismissed list. I think I'm just missed. I don't know..
"luka garza" Discussed on Game Theory Podcast
"I think when we started kind of plotting what we're going to do here today said, okay. Where do you where do you have? Hookah, Garza one said late. First one said a second one said undrafted. So it really is kind of beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Maybe it's a little of a system slant somewhat of how it can fit in the way we play maybe it's not as much an up-and-down maybe have better Wings to help on on switches, but it's not just like a guy like a a kid coming ham last night kind of withstanding a little bit where he can put him on anywhere wage. Work out like it's going to have to be the right fit there too. And the last kind of part I have is I hate people sometimes just rest on like well, he's the best player in college basketball. He's going to be the best should be fine in the NBA like that doesn't always work, you know, yeah looked up like first-team all-americans from like the last five years and they usually nail like two or three of them, but all right. So 2015-16 Tyler ulis energy League Bryce Johnson in Ukraine 16 and 17 Lonzo ball. He's on team to close to maybe team 3 Frank Mason decided to weigh him down against Auto basketball. Seventeen eighteen was ridiculous eighteen nineteen had Grant Williams, who's fine rotational guy Cassius Winston figure it out. Nineteen twenty miles Powell in the G League Joseph Marcus Howard averaging one point per game for the Nuggets. So it's not just like this easy switch where whatever it'll hit he's done enough in college. He's proved very wrong like the NBA is still a very different game that off. The translatable stuff doesn't a hundred percent work. So your 2014 first-team All-American Johnson, Nick Johnson and Arizona was a second-round pick. I believe fairly stuck in the NBA. I think he did get like make the NBA though Shabazz Napier solid backup point guard dog, McDermott. Great like a back-up for man Russ Smith. Not in the NBA didn't really make the NBA to a long degree, right? 2012 year. We've got Anthony Davis Draymond Green Doug McDermott, you know McDermott solid Draymond Green and Anthony Davis All-Stars, then we've got Thomas Robinson and Jared Sullinger, right and both of those guys are in very similar situations to what who Garza was and Luka Garza was more productive than they were to be sure. He was, you know better player dead. And both of those two are frankly, but I mean, they just could not stick at the next level and like you go down to like the second-team All-American team. I say yeah. Yeah Marcus denmon Kevin George Jones from West Virginia, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. Tyler Zeller. It's it's not the same game college basketball is not the same game as the NBA it is wholly and entirely different. I love college basketball, but the geometry of the court allows these big plotting centers to have a greater impact that's not to say that they don't translate to the next level. I think Luka Garza has a real chance to stick as a floor spacing backup center who knocks down threes and offensive rebounds and hopefully can put up more production than what he gives up on the defensive end. But like I don't I don't really see it off. Is he really gets better at a lot of different Avenues of his game and the athleticism concerns just aren't going away here..
"luka garza" Discussed on Game Theory Podcast
"I will also bring up the fact that like, do you think that his short-area quickness would not allow him and his lack of length will allow him to even play like as a drop coverage big and not have the corner get turned on him by his very quick guards. Like he might not even be able to be a drop bag in the NBA be something. I mean what what else would it be? But yeah, right I'm with you know, like my he will absolutely play and drop coverage dogs. Will he be able to do it effectively like I don't even know if you can do that effectively in a big part of being a drop coverage big is being able to protect the rim. I don't know that he can protect the rim effect. Play against NBA Talent a sneaky kind of underrated thing about Luka Garza. He's never been a very good offensive rebounder. A lot of his offense a lot of his rebounding numbers come on the offensive end cuz he gets off his own misses or mrs. From his teammates on those like ones where you can't understand how he gets the rebound because he's flat-footed on the ground still and it's just so good at carving out position in life is capable of being in the right position for the rebound. Luka Garza is defensive rebounding race at Iowa. 20.4% 12.7% 21.2% last year about 15.4% this year. He doesn't really lock down the defense of glass in a way that you would hope and that's even going to get harder if the next level in the NBA. Another issue is the passing right like people bring up like why can't he be a jokic type? Why can't he be? Yeah, he can't do that because he's not the kind of ball-handler passer playmaker that someone like Nikola jokic is in the standards for doing that job. The center position in the NBA is like Nikola. Jokic bam. Adebayo, like exceptionally High almost impossible like we see Andre Drummond trying to do it right now and Andre Drummond is like actually improved a little bit as a ball-handler over the course of years like Andre Drummond that Cavs offense is a fucking Trainwreck every guy when he tries to like run off hand. I'm trying to tries to run his stuff right like it's not fun to watch. So I totally get it with Garza because I think there is something to the fact that he works his fucking balls off man. Yeah works so hard. His motor is unbelievable. I think that that above them in the touch and His Hands which are exceptional like all of it. I think the fact that he's playing as hard as he does is his absolute number one skill point blank page. And I just have a lot of questions on how it's going to translate on defense and even if he can handle a primary role on offense and bedtime student of the game. There's an article on the athletic early in the year about how we just kind of like wore out all these phene h s tapes or whatever he was watching of Olajuwon amicale and all the footwork and the post stuff and he takes pride in that. Yeah. I talked to I don't know three or four or NBA Scouts yesterday..
"luka garza" Discussed on Game Theory Podcast
"So I disagree with what Dickie V is saying I am amenable to the argh I think is the way that I would put it my my initial problem with just the statement and I agree with everything you said is that I didn't know if so came back from commercial break. He wasn't even watching The Isle game. I just didn't know if it's not like this Ricochet shot because Kai Jones had like five points and Greg Brown was I had absolutely monster dunk if he was fine. Like I didn't know if he was just saying this is like a statement of college basketball or what what's going on in front of them and well, let's be real it probably was because he got super fucking angry about Greg Brown donkey and staring. I know I said get rid of that middle school stuff and like I don't maybe you're right off Middle School to me, but I don't know if you guys can come like that. But but but look what Luka Garza take the apps like the best player in college basketball we can argue with that or whatever wage. And he's produced immense like twenty eight and twelve against Indiana and trayce Jackson Davis 33 and 5 against Minnesota William Robbins, 16 to fourteen versus more athletic North Carolina Biggs Thirty and not like it was pretty bad at North Carolina, but an argument and then you can go the other way Iowa fans won't even say like he scores a lot of points with sometimes and whatever either you 10 versus Gonzaga mm College Point, which is absolutely incredible. And yeah, he is a monster the post he knows how to use his body to carve out space. It holds his ground and try and put your knee in his back. He's not going anywhere. He spends he seals he knows how to bump he placed her contact. He can actually trim run a little bit. He gets ahead of the play for Easter baskets people don't really give enough credit for his playmaking ability. He plays will fire and intensity is shot is better. It's up. It's a little bit of a crank over his head but it's just it's the defense on an island which we get caught up on a lot. That's the concern apart. He's in the fifties. Sun tile purse energy which is designated poor isolation single covered place which doesn't happen often in Iowa because they do a great job of concealing him and doing some selling stuff and he doesn't have to be out there. But in these clips you can be very flat-footed when it's on an island. He doesn't close out all the way because it gets fear of getting blown by and even when it does give the guy space they have a tendency to still bring it by in the NBA is so built on pick-and-roll. It'll be dropped coverage. It'll be kind of stun recover the switches stuff. It's just not going to hold up and that and that's I think the concern for everybody no one's saying that his style of basketball isn't necessarily going to be able to score in the post in the NBA. But as a holistic view, there's still some question marks. Yeah and look here's the thing. I would not even rule out a team taking Luka Garza at the end of the first round like someone really might do it. Yeah, like that is a real potential outcome here people should like brace for that. That is a birth. Real thing that could happen at some point. Point blank. Luka Garza could go late in the first round. I will not have a first-round grade on Luka Garza. I purchased will also say that and the reason for that is defensively. I mean, you mentioned purely everything on an island..
