"marcus morris" Discussed on First Things First
"Loch. Let's move on to Los Angeles now yesterday. We reported an arms race between the clippers and the Lakers occurs over the services of Knicks. Forward Marcus Morris and the clippers went out and got them all part of a three team deal with the Knicks and the wizards. As for the Lakers they decided it to stay. Put refusing to part ways with Kyle Kuzma or Dany Green. Medics are the clippers now the best team in La after what happened yesterday. No I think they're on the same level as the Lakers. Because I mean quiet Paul George Burst Lebron ad. I mean it's to me. It's kind of a coin. Flip at this point might depend on the supporting cast around. mm-hmm the Lakers would have been bonkers to make that deal if the if the Knicks turn around and they did ask her CALC. Who's been Danny Green? If the Lakers made that deal what are you doing i. I'd like Marcus Morris. He has excellent this year. Forty four percent from three. But you don't trade a proven playoff to guard in Daddy Green. who was like the perfect role player out there? And you don't just dump Kyle Kuzma for one year of Marcus Morris. So this kind of went nick how. I thought it would go yesterday sitting here talking to you about this. The Clippers had had these two assets they had the contract Parkas and they had that first round pick burning a hole in their pocket. They made the deal to get in to get to get him in that place so now they get a guy that can help. But I don't know if it changed the dynamic significantly in the conference. Sorry so I'm further down on the clippers than just about anybody. The Clippers got better markers. Moore's I don't think the forty four percent the league's second-best high volume three point shooter is sustainable but thirty eight percent certainly is it's what we've seen over a number of years for him that helps during the regular season where I think in the West seating matters when collide takes one in four games often Paul. George urged is deals with nagging injuries. Having Marcus Morris there will help you and come the play offs. I watch for your beloved Boston. Celtics Marcus Morris. It's not give Lebron problems but not back down. Not Afraid. He's a big guy. He's tough he and his brother are real legitimate. NBA tough guys and so. This does help the clippers. I I'm not GonNa sit here and act like the Lakers are lucky. They didn't get him know that he would have helped the Lakers. But this doesn't fill the single real need for the clippers in my mind which is rim protection detection and it doesn't feel anything of need for the Lakers. The last thing they did another front court player what they need is a ball handler playmaker or shooter preferably all all the above. And if they can get Darren Collison for nothing. Then the Lakers to me actually. They didn't necessarily add the better player but they did more to improve move their team. The question the Lakers is this. You know not just because he has hair now like eminem wants dead but will the real kyle Kuzma please stand up. Where's the already standing up? Last night. He got two baskets. They were both spoon fed to him by Lebron he caught Lebron got him the ball at the Rim and he finished coups. Who's MMA is going to have to figure out? Can he play on both ends of the court with the requisite maturity and intensity that is going to be needed to be in the playoff off rotation. That was the first question for the Lakers. The Signature Lakers is this Ken. Frank Vogel of the stomach to do something that last year Luke Walton did not sit regime. Genre Rondo down. They can't survive Rondo minutes and if they get collison and he takes crusoes minutes instead of rondos minutes. That will be a disaster. Last night they lose the game by ten their minus fourteen in rondos minutes in his limited minutes W- Rondo might be a good locker room guide. People might like him. He's not an effective active player for the Lakers. He never has been so those to me. Are the bigger questions for the clippers side of things. They got better and heartless was doing nothing for him so I think it's a smart move. You buy them. I don't think it's a huge move and I think I'm with you on the Rondo minutes need to be cut. I think Caruso should be getting all at this point. And if if you bring Darren Collison Bats. That's where those minutes to ultimately come from. I don't have confidence with two months to go in the regular season. That Kyle Kuzma is going to figure it out. No all of a sudden and he's it's gotta be the third option that they so badly need the biggest problem he runs into. Is that the way frank. Vogel sets his rotation. It's never coups out there alone as the leader of the second unit because they always have either Lebron or Anthony Davis on the floor and one of those two guys on the floor coups still in that same position looking for offense. I thought Frank has done some nice things around the fringes trying to run more plays for cosmic get him going but Kyle Kuzma his first couple years in the league was just like this volume score. He was talk. Bad teams. Chuck a bunch of shots and it didn't really have any consequences now. He's asked to be more of a selective shooter spot up three point shooter and right now. That's not his game. I'm not I'm not convinced nick that it can never be as game. I think he's young enough and talented enough that if you give them another couple of seasons he could develop into that type of guy but for this season short term. I just don't see it. Did the Lakers feel like this sort of untapped potential Kaku. They've given up Kaku. Danny Green wasn't a towel. Yeah I I think if they would have been Kyle Kuzma and Quinn Cook and Jared Dudley like contracts to make it work. I think they do it. I think because they are and win right now mode the only hope for the only hope. The best hope for Kuzma is now trae deadlines over. He knows he's going to be there that that daddy's but that's okay. I have to do my best to make this work. I just don't he. All his friends got traded away honestly honestly like who does he hang with. Who's he play? xbox with like these are real things for a young MBA guy living in la trying to figure it out. And I think it's been tough on him and I think for guys as I said yesterday when you have not yet been paid you have guys in your ear telling you in the way to get paid is to score the nobody in and for Kuzma what he's going to have to realize the way to get paid to be on a champion if you're on a champion and you have to good moments in an NBA finals can get you paid. Hey does much good months on a bad team. I don't know if.

"Those are a lot of needing coaches the Knicks were part of that three team swap that San Marcus Morris to the clippers New York getting LA's first round pick in the coming draft as well as a second rounder in twenty twenty one though high noon loves the move for LA no I think he is a good addition you somebody that can certainly help your team but I don't think he's the guy that fixes with ails them was seems to album is a lack of play makes sense now will market more to go and give you what he is going to give you know is another rough and tumble dues and they got a nice little collection of those over there a rough and tumble dude who also has been shooting forty four percent from three so I agree with you there is a certain redundancy to Marcus Morris joining this particular team he is now the I think the night sky computing at least thirty six percent from deep but if they value man this is a guy who was super helpful and progress to the next for getting behind the value back for him after having it on there we touched on it earlier and that the clippers elbowed out the Lakers are for Morrison to deal with the Knicks the low wage on the fact that the Lakers can help themselves not only the buyout market with a player like this to the clippers will probably be added with them again Darren Collison we've been reporting for several weeks that he's seriously considering coming out of his brief retirement and he's out in LA he's UCLA kid played most several teams this was a this was a a hello ten eleven twelve million dollar your player in free agency before he retired this summer the Lakers and clippers are his two favorites is going to choose between those two teams the Lakers really need another ball handling guard his last two three years in the league he's become a much better three point shooter and he's a player that the Lakers are are going to continue to recruit really hard and just like they were Marcus Morris we're gonna be going

right people the right support system Dan Graziano on NFL live on what if anything this apology would do you know actions speak louder than words and he's done a lot to damage those chances over the past I guess year the other thing to understand is the still under investigation by the NFL for the activity that went on with regard to accusations bend and lawsuits being filed against him by women earlier this year so you're gonna sign him you gotta know first how long you're gonna have in for is he going to be suspended and for how long so I don't think the public apologies while nice actually

"marcus morris" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"Undisputed handpicked with the best segments and discussions skip Shannon. Let's go the entry deadline is at three eastern today. A. And the Lakers and clippers have reportedly been in a quote arms race both teams or interested in Andrea would dolla. But the heat swooped in last night to get the former finals. MVP from I'm the grizzlies. Miami is also expected to add to nail gala Nari from the thunder so Shannon. How big of a threat does this make the heat in the east? They're not a threat. It keeps them. Maybe from playing the books maybe skip into second round maybe that's about it. The books are clearly head and shoulders above everybody the in the east. Then you throw in Toronto and the Celtics. Yeah so right. Now that currently exists even with Iggy fourth-best team. Now maybe they get a gallon. Nari skip it bumps them up and you avoid you. Avoid basically what they're hoping for is to avoid the Milwaukee Bucks into the Eastern Conference finals. That's all you can hope for and I still don't think I don't think they even if they got the Nari out I don't think they can beat him. They have no answer for John Now. What the heat remind the college team? 'cause they played two zero like they're accused. Give their jumping that's quicker than anybody in the NBA. And I guess it served them well they got when you look at. They got a big day they shoot. They should a bunch of threes Jimmy got hurt last night. So we'll see how that plays out but I don't see them as a threat and I don't think they're getting finals. MVP League plus. He hadn't played all year. It seemed like last year during the regular season. Skip that he was on his last leg and then he got a little boost a couple of games in the playoffs playoffs. He'll average by appointment about twenty twenty one minutes. Last year that uptick. I played a little bit more. Got The ten in the playoffs. But I don't know what they think they're giving. Yeah they they do realize you're thirteen fourteen so you're not getting you're you're not iggy skip. I don't really think it moves the needle that much for me. They're not a major player. Do I think all of a sudden now Mandy right there with the with the bugs with the Celtics. I don't see it so I hope you're man. Lebron will forgive me for this but I love Pat Riley. I know he and Lebron got a little cross ways in the end and Miami though he got crop way. We're Brian Okay. Either way you WANNA look at it. They clashed the two of them. And Maverick Carter and others clashed with him over how they access access. That's a good way to put over accidents and yet instill. When Lebron left and Dwayne got old it left Pat Riley Wiley pretty high and dry low and dry Miami right maybe low and wet in my I am in? The point was that he has been flailing and scrambling ever since and now he is all in on flailing scrambling. He's GonNa try anything in his power to produce a credible playoff a off contender right and he obviously has made his team even better than it is and it's thirty four and sixteen which was split. Pretty great right. Would you say they're the surprise of the League. Say Right the Memphis okay. So as we speak they sit there nine back Milwaukee but Milwaukee's forty three three and seven. I mean we just SORTA ignore them but they're they're a dynamo right now right. Yes and Miami sits two and a half backup Toronto for second and one backup Boston for thirds. They're still hanging in there and to your point if they could creep up a little bit they could play. Milwaukee may be in the conference bribed right to try and boy I I gotcha so I was trying to talk myself into. He's pulled this off but but all he's done is sort of. He's gotTA GOTTA be list. Big Three now might even be C.. Plus list because you do have Jimmy Butler and we all love Jim but IGA Dolla Woah. And or your other two by the way Bam Bam made the All Star game so maybe it's three and a half big three and right off right but then I I'm with you. I keep reaching back for the old the dollar of the dollar because all I can remember from the files last she was he was just broken down and look like he was done. Yes didn't you think on his last legs and so this is all surprising to me that he's the apple of everybody's he's I he's the key piece here. I'm like Whoa okay. So he's thirty six and last year for Golden State. He averaged six points four rebounds and three assists which is not bad. He's sort of lead the shock troop that but back in the day he could guard Lebron he could bother them. We've got to be careful you so if you say something negative about iggy three time champ. But we don't won't stay up to us. Oh we're just trying to do. We're trying to analyze TRAE. We're not taking shots at Komo KC will stay up. You Know Steph to Vegas media outlets that IGGY doesn't like to be referred to anymore iggy really good Dala okay. Okay Okay this your Guy Andre igwe dollar. We don't I think eight dollars always taught to say I know in fairly way used to come on the old show a lot he nicknamed me Diabolical Hater D. H. A. T. shirts diabolical. Eight or one time anyway. I love him too and I hope for his sake that he is a key new piece to this team because he knows how to play basketball and he knows how to win basketball games if his body will allow him to like how many people have called him a dollar. How many of his teammates either for guarantees either referred to him because if he was with the original Allen Iverson remember the split but for me that's offensive because there's just one eight I know but it's hard for me to believe that they call him ego dollar? It's just hard harder. Roll off the top. They'd be called but he wants to be referred to that. I'll call it wants to buy. It is will. He Changed Life in Miami. Probably not. We'll change life in Miami. Maybe because he's having quietly a monster year he's averaging nineteen and six for Oklahoma City and he is making forty one percent in his three point. Shots he's shooting ninety percent from the free throw line. Wow that's pretty great. Let's give me so hit and Miss He. He'll have one of those games get well. He'll go for thirty eight in the game. He'll go for twelve and two. Does he make Miami. Better sure does has Bam made them yes he has made them better and then I looked down the list list of scores that they have and and drag it you still averaging sixteen and kingery bit. Yeah and then they just discovered out of nowhere where undrafted out Oakland. He's averaged sixteen points in Tyler. Hero didn't seem coming. But he was the thirteenth overall pick and he's been great Robinson Dunkin Romm Central Michigan his shocking me because he he goes out there with a green light and highest competence. Just let it go. He's got some coups men and he does. Okay okay so you have the makings of team. But in the end there's still going to be an also ran as much as I root for Pat Riley. And unless he comes down and coach's team that will help. It's it's not going to happen at one point. Lebron wanted him to coach. Steve Moore that and coach Spo so that brings us to the the two teams that are going to dominate the postseason conversation in. I think they're both better than Milwaukee. But that's just me and that's clippers and Laker which team in your estimation needs to make one more move. I believe it's the Lakers. Yeah because everybody in in for the clippers skip they know their roll. They've embraced erodes. Louis TRAE has no. They're coming off the bench and you can book them down. Basically book them for somewhere between thirty five and forty points a night beginning about fifty plus pinch points tonight. You know you got Paul George so when you get ready to close game they go Paul George they trade they go Lou Williams they go and they go pat bill. That's it so we know we. We got three scores. We got down everything that comes up the board that is so we know we. They got their free score theft. legit the Lakers still trying to find that third officer coups. MMA played well the other night wish he could give us more eighteen and twelve. Maybe not the twelve rebounds but we can get consistent shooting but one game skip you twenty five twenty nine the next game. He goes eight and three. And that's what's concerning for the Lakers. Because get once did you get to play. Offs kept me consists court. I have no doubt about Alabama. I know they're going to get somewhere between fifty fifty five points all the nightly basis. But that's not going to be an especially with the bench. The Clippers beat you with their bench because we had there been a track you down if they have the Lee their they're bitch will extend that lead and you gotTa match that. Ad Lebron can't play forty eight minutes in the playoff although we would like that and so until they get that third option did I like you know. It's been reported. That one of the Morris twin marquees Mark Marcus. Yes might be in play. I like him. He's GonNa Bring toughness skip. Skip I like it. He could hit big shots he can score. But I believe is the Lakers Lakers need to make a move more so than the clippers. Yeah I would agree with that and I also agree. Marcus Morris is a difference maker. I don't like him anymore but I I do love him as a player like I told you yesterday he had a verbal agreement with the Spurs. And he would've changed them. He made them a playoff team. That's how good he is asked why I just started last second. He said you know what I think. The Knicks are gonNA offer me a little more money in wooded rich. Paul say to him. Good night okay. They do that in an I'm out. That's why gene. I don't know if you noticed this. But that's why they started doing contracts because in the beginning contract was a meeting of the mind offer you six mix cattle you give me this okay. No problem but somewhere along the line people started renewed. So I gotta get your name on the paper so we had a bourbon agreement and and that's what happened. But I still wanted but you know what what is it what. Everybody's using San Antonio Survey rides any other Guy June earlier happening. Yeah he didn't just guilty quit he quit though but you can i. I loved him before he quit. And now I love because he jilted Lebron to. That's who he reneged on so there by Cleveland. You Watch Jersey. You buy the shoe. I got the shoes shoes. So now the man that lift you high and dry that you believe that could have won a championship head. He stayed yeah. Now you embracing me. I am because I have embraced the clippers over the Lakers and that is why that is my motivation. If you want to know the truth we notice route. But I do believe that Jerry West and company will make a concerted effort. Maybe a better effort than the Lakers. To acquire Marcus Morris because again for the very reason that he jilted San Antonio that's what he's made of as you point out he is his own man and when he decides to do something he just goes and does it and by the way he is having having a career year. He's averaging twenty a game. This is all career high five rebounds but he's shooting forty percent from three. That's exactly the kind of player. Both teams could play a Weenie. I mean come on you when they. La You come Elliott you can put a liberal and you can put a Laker though now you do that and you know what he can close yeah he will take and make big three point shots you try and deal. That's another that's another defender. We can throw a Paul George that you can throw at Kawai and that's what you need. You need bodies. Because that's what the clippers can do. I can throw Kawai. They can throw Paul. George they can throw Hark lists all these guys at Lebron and try wear them Dow Yep so we will get it. Maybe he'll be a clipper. I gotta feed our Alma Mater. Best this couple of taxes you owe me go to the clippers. Always wanted to play with Lebron. Did he wait a second rich. Paul jilted him deal here yes he did. He said I'm out I quit. You have to fire you. You have to skip that'd be UK do you. Have you got it. The Rich Paul gave him his word yet. His Rich Paul Word on the land. Marcus do you WANNA play. For Doc rivers or Frank Vogel Vogel High Impose Sarah Dowry Convincing Gold by bodes. I do love Dr Tarja harder. I love that guy..
"marcus morris" Discussed on Mornings with Keyshawn, Jorge & LZ
"Go Dan here's why because frank right was his quarterback coach with the chargers it makes all essential world. He understands the playbook he walked right near. It's like that unlike a Brady moving around Philip rivers going indie gives them something and gives them a little bit so jacoby percent he gives you some things but then he also also can give you some things. No He's not a turnover machine is just that he's one of those guys that I think he's A starter but not a starter to the point where he's GonNa take you where you need to go. You know he's one of those guys. He'll well river still that guy. I mean he's coming off of the worst year of his career. I mean he might be lightly he might. He might still be the second half of the season when they fire King Wisit hunters the offense coordinator the almost charges the chargers offense spiked. Did you know that it went up. So even know rivers was kind of weird plan. They stay off has got better. They got better but he kept turning the ball over like creating this was. Maybe but maybe he won't the turnover machine in India because of familiarity with the offense right next one quarterback again Cam Newton will be the next quarterback of the Chicago. Bears take take it shake it. Shake Cam. Newton will be the quarterback of the chargers. He'll be the next quarterback charge That's what I believe. So that's what I honestly belies. That better fit. I think it's just a better fit because one. They have no problems with African American quarterbacks Rebecca Charges Organization just keeping one hundred which they they. If there's one out there they're gonNA grab to. Chicago is not the type of teen gene. That Cam Newton Kit kind of engineer moving to the next system the next situation because all offensively. They're stuck in the stone ages. They want to run the ball in play defense. Run the ball in play defense they do with. Chicago's been doing for the since. Nineteen twenty two with George Halas us or something and and and so. It's it's not a fit for him. It's a better fit because in California. La in particular because he's a snap snap crackle pop guy he is he. He has no problem with doing that being around that the bright lights plus the charges need a buzz us going into this new stadium and I believe there's only two guys that would give them that buzz although I believe one of them not even think about it. Which would be Tommy in Cam? Not only to that will give them that buzz at that position going into that new stadium. All right let's do one more football one before we go back to the NBA. Here's Stephen Smith talking about what Jerry Stephen Jones are doing to Dak Prescott. It's incredibly disrespectful and again. I'm a fan of Jerry Jones. I'm not joking around here with my cowboy eight original. I'm dead serious. I'm I'm a fan of Jerry. Is Stephen Jones. But they should be ashamed of themselves for what they're doing. What the cowboys are doing? The Deck Prescott is disrespectful. Take it or shake it. What are they doing besides business? I mean what what they don't want to give him a contract they don't they don't value him Mike. He values his self in terms of the numbers. that's negotiate such just normal stuff. That's what they don't WanNa you don't. You're not worried about alienating him at all because like you said yesterday all of a sudden Jared Goff boom done Carson Wentz boom done these things get done and there's no public should or shouldn't we. This has been incredibly credibly public since DOC has been approaching his free agency since stack has been getting ready to go on. There's been this ebb and flow of is this is he that and now all of a sudden waiting waiting in the Dallas cowboys does is he. This is that they are they saying it publicly. They're not by not giving him money. They're not not giving money travis. They offered multiple contracts. It's stuff that he wants is just like us. We want everything doesn't mean. ESPN going to give it to us. That's just just you know it it. It does feel though that when you go back to rookie year and Jerry talking about him not securing the starting position you know we gotta wait and see and maybe twenty a comeback and he did that for his entire rookie year even though it was obvious he was gonNA keep the job if there is a reoccurring theme. We've just the way they treat him publicly privately. It's it's all good Danny but publicly. I don't this is the second visit to me. This is the second sort of disrespectful. Move it as a business person running team and looking at contracts that you gotTa do just because a guy says I'm worth two hundred million dollars you don't just and even the checkbook you you have to figure out what fits what's his value. Is it twenty. Five million is thirty five million. What's a Maury cooper super? What's the other guys that we got? This isn't a question that blindsided them. This is the question to traverse points. been on their radar from much of the season. Yes but just because you value a yourself one thing he may be one hundred million dollars up front and they've offered him fifty and he may say one hundred. We don't know those conversations so to say right at the being disrespectful. It's Kinda wrong let's get in one quick NBA. When Leon Rose Lebron's former agent is the new president of the New York Knicks which means Marcus Morris is going to be a Laker? Take it or shake it. I like it when I get rush settled very because it's it's just because he was his former agent is a lot of stuff there. I mean there's a lot of lot of history both on the positive on the negative side because as you say a former former agent right I mean Lebron started off with Aaron Goodwin then moved to Leeann rolls along with Maverick and along with rich Paul to kind of teach and learn and see what.

NBA Trade Deadline: D’Angelo Russell To The Knicks?
"We're going to go through all the major players teams and things and what they can happen as we were just over forty eight hours away from the trade deadline online. So let's start there Ryan with the New York Knicks. They are actually one of the more interesting teams around the deadline. That got a lot of potential assets that they could be sending out. Marcus Morris has one of those guys. They've got a lot of potential interesting. Big teams could be interesting and also we've heard rumors about their interest in de Ngelo Russell in some sort of trade situation with the Golden State Warriors. So what could you tell us. What's what's the what's the latest on the next and what you're hearing about their plan now that they've no longer have Steve Mills that has their president as we approached the trade deadline? I'd be frustrated about about the de Ngelo Russell rumors if I were Nix fan because keep in mind. The Knicks had a bunch of cap space last year it was widely known that the Brooklyn Nets and other teams. We're going to pursue Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving and that the Ngelo Russell may be acquire -able and When the Knicks did not get a meeting with Kevin Durant or Kyrie Irving they quickly shifted and signed a a bunch of power forwards including Julius randle and Marcus Morris and Bobby Portis and did not go after Daniel Russell despite a big hole at the point guard position? So you know if the Knicks were to trade a bunch of assets for Liangelo. I think that would look pretty bad. You know six or seven months after free agency but You know this is where the Knicks I think they have the worst point guard or depth and talent rotation in the league. I I don't think they have a viable starter right now. It'd be hard to say that Frank Nickel Tina or Dennis Smith junior is they're offered Payton. It is a at least they'll even league average started so I understand why they have some interest in in the Angela Russell again I think they should be looking long term. I think they should could see if they can get the late first round pick from a contender for Marcus Morris. I keep an eye and the clippers Rudy. He made a good point earlier about the clippers ability to trade a first round. Pick the last time in in a in a while So you deal that would work. is Marcus Morris going to La For Mo- heartless and a first something like that. So that's that's where I'd be exploring if I were in the next front office but again what they should do and what they are doing. I think maybe two very different things I heard the next. They're interested in keeping Morris and they may potentially even add to their team like trying to trade for a Daniel Russell which I think would be a mistake but Yeah with what they have going on in the front office right now with with the changes in the short term pressure. I wouldn't be surprised if they make an aggressive move to try to add to their help me out with the NGELO. Russell like feel like they're the team in in the Leveraged Bridge position. But I don't feel that way I feel like there's kind of like a ticking time bomb on when they can get rid of him but it seems like the more they ask for assets. The people are willing to give that up like me understand de Ngelo Russell. Why teams are so interested in getting good question scale? I think because if you're a team that needs a young point guard which is we've discussed. This show is probably the most difficult position to fill in today's NBA. You don't have one then. The NGELO Russell is the best player lawyer who looks like he's available or maybe available either now or in the summer so I think if you're a team you know you're probably kick the tires on a guy like drew holiday. I especially especially if you're a contending team but if you're a team that's trying to build like the Knicks or like the Minnesota Timberwolves and Diangelo Russel is appealing because he's relatively young. He's in his prime him and he's under team control for the next four years One of the questions. I had prior to this. Trait season was whether teams look at. The Angelo is overpaid now because keep in mind Minnesota talking to a deal with the Ngelo Russell and the twenty five million dollar a year range. I ended up getting an average of about thirty from Golden State. So that's not a significant difference Overall but it does impact your team building your your salary cap and potential luxury tax ramifications down the road. So I agree with this gal but I think You know Diangelo. Russell is available now teams know that if they can't get him now that will almost certainly be available over the summer. And if you're a team like Minnesota where the young star and Karl Anthony towns who doesn't want to wait to win games aims and your teams lost eleven or twelve in a row. I think that makes Dangelo Russell. Even more appealing.

Kyrie Irving left the game with a knee injury. He's listed as data date. It seems like the Celtics successes as well. Marcus Morris did not sugarcoat the issue. It's not fun snuff. I'm not beating it. Over win. And it's still not not fun. No. I don't see Joe day watch. All these teams guys up on a bench of jumping on a cord. Don't you know, the stuff that this look like the enjoying you not make success enjoying everything they're playing together interplay in the one I wanna look at us to see a bunch of individuals. We got to play to win the sacrifice in play hard sacrifice in you know, being better team, e sacrificing whatever it is. You know, we have to put it to the side. No one's getting traded shea lines over compete for championship. And that's how we got our posted yank Maluso y'all man, you're going to do we we don't have no attitude toughness wing having fun. You know, it's gonna be a long season. Marcus Morris insinuating. Something needs to change down the stretch. What do you think it is? If the Celtics are gonna make the playoffs number of people as far as Brad Stevens had a tremendous amount of confidence in Brad Stevens. As one the coaches, I'm leaves very very good coach. But I think that only time will tell if you're an elite coach how much can you very how you're going to play based on your talent. Can you win when you're less talented, which they did last year which for Brad that to me? That's what he normally did. That's what he did it Butler when he didn't have five star recruits. He had a bunch of two star three star guys. They played the great system. That's what got them to national prominence in college basketball last year and how they do things. They're they're out of bounds plays. They're dead. Deadball time out what happens in those things. And how they play defense. We gave Brad Stevens a lot of credit. I never said he wanted the best coaches. But I knew he was good coach. Plane with a talented roster. What would he do that was the question? I had last year what we doing. When Gordon Hayward comes back and Kyrie Irving comes back. And now we're starting to see this team is not gelling we saw Jalen Brown and Jason Tatum thrive last season during the playoffs. Now, we have Kyrie back taking over the team. Gordon Hayward back only a shell of himself. We don't see the team thriving because what they have not done is. They're not going to sacrifice for the other teammates. That's why guys would come to work and not be happy. When you're not happy. It's not about shooting percentage. I need to work on my free. Throw men were not playing defense. This know what they're telling me to do. I don't feel like is best for my game..

"And once we say, fifteen games affiliate fifteen to twenty them together. We can have a bit more of an idea because I think that we'll be in the judgment period for shore of of you know, how many shots Jimmy getting his first five games does. He just get out there. So far away. Does he does he try to blend in a little bit? I at the start the season last year in Minnesota his only full season he blended. He said here's here towns. Here waking do your thing and figure it out. But after they didn't take them in themselves. It's my time. But I think if you Joel Embiid will be different. And I believe those three it's a ton of talent those three you just need guys that know the rolls off of them. And I think they have inferior Wilson Chandler who sort of likes the Celtics markets. More suit can Chuck from the four spot hasn't been great. He's kind of coming off injury. But he could be like that that guy that exactly like, Marcus Morris defend and do his thing there. And then they need a fifth, and they need to the depth issues definitely worried. But there's there's too much. I think those three guys figured out you called Simmons as a winner in this. I think it's safe to say Jimmy Butler is winner because he got what he wanted to Minnesota potential five hundred ninety million dollar deal on a team that is in the east, and you know, could be, you know, a potential team to go very deep into the playoffs. So I'm sure he wants that as well. Win keeps saying at least any other winners from this. Is it Karl Anthony towns, I mean, you said there's a lot of pressure on now. Yeah, that's true. But I mean. Finally, got rid of this guy. Yes. So he should be better. Now, he should perform numbers even when Butler wasn't playing. Yeah. He's kind of general soreness back to twenty seven points per game on fifty four percent shooting death. When Jim was in. There is what ten points less than forty three percent shooting. Good. So now, it's up to them. They don't have any excuse anymore. It's to see what towns, and we have got between them. And now how tip to truly interesting to me is now typifies relationship with front office. And the ownership moves forward because it sounds as though that was very very fractured. And I don't know exactly who had the final say in this deal. And I think that's sort of come out. But there's no doubt that the owner was basically undermining the people employs to do these things. So now, what does I do? What did they gonna losing streak? Does he fire him anyway? Or does he sort of just get through this as in, you know, maybe start afresh nixed. It took this long on. I happen for them to finally trae Jimmy vol. Waist. They probably ruin their entire season. If as Jimmy said he said this at the end of last season. That's that's that's bad on. That's the truth. Yeah. I mean, they could have got it done in preseason. They could've made a trade. But they have. You're right skates. They ruined the relationship. Now, you have been a who has just four six weeks taking Jimmy Butler side on this whole thing. Ran the offense the same way as if Jimmy Butler is going to be the star.

"Last year so yeah i think if you look at it i would say the celtics this year compared to last year when they face them in the conference finals the celtics are are much better prepared to guard lebron you know marcus morris is is is pretty good with that jalen brown has certainly the physical tools that you look for i think semi lay the rookie who did so well against you honest intent to colombo we'll see a lot of him but you know again has seen it all at this point he's kind of at the peak now where where his his his mental sharpness and experience has has caught up to just how good he is physically hasn't started to decline physically so he's sort of at peak lebron right now and and that's going to be a big challenge obviously a minute and a half or so to go what is the best reason for a houston fan to wake up this morning and saying yes we we can win the series i would i would have to say it's the defense i mean this is better team that's been much better defensively than it's ever been and you know if you've if you've got a team that can score the way that they can you have to hope that that that they could defend the perimeter which they've been doing a pretty good job with i think clinton cappella might be the most important guy in the series because if he's blocking shots the way he was against utah he's controlling the paint did a better job of it than rudy gobert who's the likely defensive player of the year if quake capella can do that then that really you know houston is going to be much more aggressive on the perimeter take the warriors out of some of those shots.

"And joel embiid got into some friendly banter and marcus morris made a three oh gesture at some phase he also made it to joel embiid and that has raised the dander of some basketball media type so like oh wait a minute you're messing with the basketball god's how dare you point that out right how dare you making a big deal about this like somehow the the hand gesture of marcus morris is going to be so horrific that it's going to be the downfall of the celtics well marcus morris was asked about that particular hand gesture after the game and he said well he was asked why he made it he said quote because it's reality morris said it's hard because i know i wouldn't say a damn word if i was down three two one it's the end quote from the celtics marcus morris to joel embiid as to why he made the hand gesture heard round the world a very nefarious hand gesture well that is one of those things he's talking about the the big picture the the big picture is the celtics are going to win likely they're going to win on wednesday and they're going to continue their their process forget the sixers process they're going to grow with jason tatum and jalen brown and they'll take on lebron in the second round of the playoffs but if the unimaginable happens if the unthinkable happens then that pretty meaningless gesture by marcus morris will have legs and it's it becomes the kind of thing that gets put into a book people make a big deal about it oh man the sixers were inspired because marcus morris made a hand gesture really come on no one really believes that come on it's it's pretty simple here selfish going home home cooking they'll play better they'll get the calls shoot the ball better neither team shot the ball well in this this particular game you pass the ball little better you win the game it's not that difficult it's not that difficult i wish it was something separate we can say hey you know the celtics are screwed right now as i've pointed out that would be more compelling talk radio i don't believe that though.
