"I've pack as we ever get your podcast. We appreciate it. Rato's review was gives five stars. You only give it four stars. I'm inclined to believe you are a hater said time of week where we do our interviews in joining us, now he writes in covers bay area sports for the athletic. Also, you could check out his two books, not one, but two golden, which is a book on Steph curry, and I just bought this one on my kindle myself. K D, Kevin Durant pursuit to be the greatest. His name is Marcus Thompson. And Margaret lets people know where you went to college. Clark Atlanta university. Maybe we will find a way or make one. That's right. That is what we do. So like you cover the warriors our things. Things are surprisingly excitable even though they're like half bit. Still got a little bit of oppose the bay kinda lit right now. It's almost like a you know that one last party before they shut the club down there. This was was going out yesterday. I was like it's kinda high for the day, everybody all the stores. It's kinda pack the barbershops crowded them. All right. So you yeah, it's like one last party for they shut the club down except at about twelve thirty somebody shut that thing up and the headline of carried out on a gurney. Not a garden. He just a stretch it already. I feel like it's he did one just stretcher. We'll see if somebody's going to pick up the mic and rocket. Thanks, neil. Actually, it'd be bail. It's time for Steph curry grab the mic. I but this is the most I can't think of a situation quite like this one with the Kevin Durant injury. Because you tell me if I'm wrong here, but literally, everyone involved their reputation is on the line here. On. No question. I mean have we even seen that before, like a player step into the finals like, Kevin Durant? Stature just walk in a game five like that, that was crazy alone. But then the leave twelve minutes later is nuts. And it's really created, like this, this weird kind of backdrop for people to either be heroes or goats. Right. If I mean it's gonna be crazy like stuff very often changes to their. You know, as changes, everything if it's Klay Thompson business if Jerry mind, green wedges, you and I do that if if you take away the three one leave blow, and they did it two hundred sixteen. If you just kinda like if they if they get a makeup great for that. The summer school to fix glass, you imagine them news after that, man. Like it's a whole lot rely it's crazy too, because like they've put so much into this, that sometimes you felt like they might be okay with it end in this way. Right. Not like we wanna lose. But the realization that and then all this stuff is at some point. Right. And you can I remember Miami, kind of had that feel like all right? I mean well, this is how it is like you. Gotta look at each other and be like, all right. Here's how it is run. But the Kevin Durant injury has tiny given a new life in that way, where they're like, nah. It's going really have to end. Yeah. Yeah. But like let's with the injury itself, though, in just what his surrounded the team around the injury. And we got these reports that there were whispers about guys wondering why was that other guys who playing through these injuries? And Kevin Durant was not back where his teammates among those who were looking at him. Like, why aren't you playing?.

"I don't want to give you this update because I do think it's interesting. We just talked to Sean hike in for Bleacher report talking about Covad looney. And how he's going to be out, obviously, going to lean on bookie was very good in game two, but Klay Thompson, I, he, he was out last night, about eight minutes to go hit MRI today that indicated added mild hamstring strain of the hamstring. He is questionable for game three on Wednesday. That's brutal news. Kevon looney was balling out. Did not play in the second half of last night's game. He had an MRI today, and it says that he has non-displaced cartilage fractures, on the right side, which is right by the sternum there from if I'm correct? Right markets. Right. By the sternum it's ripped so he's out indefinitely, which is a brutal blow for the warriors. So we'll see if the adjustments that could make I think the fact that they split in Toronto, it really should bring the narrative of the entire series back. Before tip off of game one. Which is if the warriors, thank you. Thank you. Jake's. You should just said that should have just said questionable just hop on next time. But I do think it brings the narrative back to game before game one tip off where if the warriors are in control, but gonna win. That's my gut feeling right now. They're coming back home for two. That's right now, you're right exactly my fault. It's it's going to be wild Wednesday. It really is. And I think I think the warriors the warriors are back in control here because everybody was talking about how the Torah we had with spinning after game one, you said I mean, didn't the national narratives drive you nuts. To that is a controlling wait a minute. Time out. Stop traffic and they do it again. Do that. Again, fourteen seventeen to twelve. I know I know the, the fans of Toronto were very, very mellow. I heard Marcus Thompsons conversation with John and Tom last week at what's having a good time up there. But I think the national media just stopped traffic for second, because everyone hates the warriors nationally, not out here. They there, the villains. Wants to lose to the fact that the raptors instill game one. They outmanned up with the God game one put everybody in this spin that they were somehow and control the series when, in fact I had to see it yesterday if they could repeat the performance. Now they were damn good. But that third quarter warriors show that they are that much better. It was the classic third quarter warriors gone around. Yeah. I mean we've seen that somebody times out of halftime, making the right adjustments. We've seen it so many times that come on third quarter they smoke you and they opened it up with an eighteen run. Like I said a seventeen point swing down five twelve. Well. I stop that. That's so impossible. If, if you're Nick, nurse you're pulled whatever hair, you have left out. I didn't know them Shah's from massage from Drake from dictators Saggio Drake.

"Like i know the conversation was about ninety six bulls but they they always felt like more of a spurs type thing where this thing is gonna be stretched out because it was about how they played together it was about their offense and it was about you know it wasn't really about that overwhelming dominance like koby shock like the boom it was man we're we're going to be in this thing for ten years like and how many titles do we get in that stretch i think when they got k d then became we have the talent to dominate so them not winning back to back championships would be disappointment because they're that they're good enough to dominate with that said though i kinda think they've already taken themselves out of that that conversation just even if they win just with how they've gone about it they don't look like the dominant team you know like houston looks like a former opponent right looks like the warriors are maybe a little bit better but they're right there and i don't know this doesn't feel like the inevitability that felt like with the bulls and i think it's less than on the warriors and more we gotta understand the league is so different now that those things to win humanity winning three straight like this makes us not appreciate lebron in many ways because he does have finals losses but the way the league is and the talent that's out there and just prepare all these teams on eventually the league catches up with you that's just the way it is i mean lebron wade and chris bosh teamed up in their primes got lost the first files to dallas spanked oklahoma city were a ray allen miracle not miracles we're we're a very weird game six finish away from losing to the spurs and then lost to the spurs like lebron.

"Something here i'm glad you brought up a dollar for two reasons number one for all the talk today about katie being eight twenty two and having to bad shooting games in a row and the rhythm of the offense and all that but a lot of this series comes down to shaun livingston as six points combined in the last two games draymond green and andre would allah combined for the series or two of thirteen from three that's a lot of the series right there and some of that is andre being out of but they just haven't gotten enough from livingston and igwe iggy hasn't been there and draymond hasn't hit a three basically until crunch time last night was full talk about like the biggest right yeah but so look there are not many more many many bigger andrea would allah fan boys than me i love andre iguodala everything i love about basketball and role players and hoops iq and unselfishness and all that is that's andrea i love andrea and i get that he's an like an essential part of their team in part because they have all these centers who can't play in this match up in part because nick young has been a disaster in in unplayable to the point that quinn cook cook was on the floor late in the game and so they just don't like losing a wing no matter who it is out of their rotation is very hard for them so i get all of that and he's he was guarding harden he's a great defense i get it they still have four all stars like like what at at various points all scores at various points over the last two years like k d and staff have been something like consensus.

"He is right in the sense that there are seven to ten possessions in every one of these games were because they keep moving and they move with purpose the rockets mess up and they get an open three or an open like there is there is there that that works but it it's it's like the mix of that and the trigger point with the ball is something is just off with it and i do think some of that is the rockets and some of that is worse with your point like the offense looked best last night when steph had the ball and they found something in the steph klay thompson pick and roll which is like even more than steph katie is there sort of like when nothing else is working they go to that and they rarely do it now the rockets are going to be ready for that now they got confused by they've lose some switches they didn't know what to do and they got open now they're going to be ready for it but to your point i think you nailed it talking about the ball handling one of the ways to beat switches is to confuse the defense about what exactly is coming when to offense players come together and with the warriors we always talk about that with the off ball cutting the split screens when two guys off the ball come together and come apart and how they fake this way and slip that way and that confuses switches steph is the one guy they have who can do that with the ball and there was one pick and roll he ran i think it was actually with david west where west disguise the direction of the screen like he came up flat like with his back to the basket so they couldn't tell which way he was gonna flip and then steph had like a couple of little steph fake dribbles into the screen where they couldn't tell which way the screen was going and which way steph was going and they got i believe i believe steph crossed up cappella god layup out of it that's the stuff only he can do like katie doesn't have that handle katie's handle is lee big and loping and tall a little.

"I believe zero i thought last night he actually made an effort as he has another games to to drive one on one against hard inner drive one on one against whoever was on him when when he got the ball of top and try and drive and kick the problem is eight he's he he's having trouble gaining separation against hard and sometimes a little surprising and be the help defenses like is fantastic like pj tucker is doing a really good draymond green impress he's he's he's not guarding nonshooters he's in the lane he's in the right spots like katie can't get to the rim we like pj tucker like it's not it's not that he's definitely like he's waiting until katie makes his move and then boom he's like listen with the hell and i that's just not that's not katie laker team is one right like not he's not a poster who's like the time round and in the second how to read the floor he's just shoot that's what he does so that's why i think they're putting them in a tough position because this is really not his game like he can do it but it's not his game and went clear it's cover and went census covered cluelessly pass anyway like the answer might be quinn cooker nick you know and that's the win for the rocket i thought he was going great getting to the rim like four way too but then they start every the help so at that point now they're trying to work this inside outside game we katya has post i just don't feel like that's his game and i think we hear them.

"About how often the warriors are saluting and you just cited the passing stats and we we all know them they isolated like eleven times for one hundred possessions regular season and they're almost thirty in this series a rate that would've led the entire nba it's completely out of character for them and and there is some recognition that houston has something to do with that all the switching is taking away their fancy back cuts they're picking rolls all the stuff that isn't isolation is being taken away even eastern transition defense although it's been a little scattershot they've they've paid more attention to it than they normally do so people recognize that but if it feels like they're sort of parceling it like it's like forty percent the rockets sixty percent the warriors just kinda deciding like yeah we're gonna easily this kind of which is what we're going to do we're we're just not going to run our offense because we're lazy or tired or not mentally focused maybe it's maybe it's eighty percent what houston is doing and twenty percent the warriors being taken out a rhythm because of what houston is whatever it is the blame or credit is not being parceled out enough to look at houston and like you think it's easy to just switch switch switch and reese which like that stuff is so hard not only physically but the mentally to stay that focused over and over and over again and you know what people are right including you that a lot of possessions the warriors don't have the kind of verve that they usually have their possessions where k d dribbles up top nobody's moving or no one on the weak side is moving that's on common for the warriors but what part of the reason that's happenings because i mean this is all the cycle these these players are human this is not a machine that you plug in and all the parts move around in the same way every time when a defense starts to take things away from you you kind of get out of character and a little bit out of rhythm and you kind of have to decide what's the best way to go about things and they've had difficulty navigating that and the rockets are playing awesome defense we know.

"Exactly yeah right in oklahoma city and then you go easily and you got uh cleveland or before it was miami at the time boss there was just so many teams they were looking up at and just kind of watch them pick them off like it was thrilling there was like a big game once a week now it's like four a season that were you go into the game you like you know they might lose this game and one of them with houston and then heart is out so i'm i flew out there for the game on my man now they of course are going win like even when you say now they're going to lose his gang you are putting it on a little thick right like you reach region like they might be in all they might lose his game like ryan anderson could play his first game of the season rayo or pj tucker could hit five threes like it's possible that's too bad part about as we just don't get these great games anymore but the good part about it is you have no choice but to to focus on the details of covering the teen such as steph curry hyun 38 percent from 3 and he would like to kind of just let that get loss and the ark of the season they were winning it doesn't matter but it's so mundane the went in that now it doesn't matter so we have it right your free throws are downright let's talk about that because it is eventually i i think i saw them not just the dwon evans before they like maybe a month before they came to staples in uh maybe they're playing the lakers in incur was kind of frustrated with light turnover problems and stuff like that and so his job is to iron out all these king so that they are they have the right mentality in the right physicality moving forward wants to get to the playoffs but for everyone else it's kind of like you know we gotta go through the slog again and all i'm curious like what the mentality of the team is like the clearly have the highest standards for themselves to the point that they get too they get the moments of the game in their dislike they're just trying to embarrass you make a mix tape right because that is them at their peak.

"Look so easy whereas kevin durant even though he's like a sevenfoot shooting guard like he makes it look so mundane at this point that i can kind of see the dynamic of durant not really being able to eat into that because he didn't make them great he just made them better steph curry is the one that made them great and the way he does it is like you said like there's a there's such a fluidity to how durant who were such a like when people say mahiga wake out the bear to get twenty legacy really scores like back where it's almost kind of boring because it's a barrage of easy pull up jumpers right the occasional super high long crossover right and a might might be the here and there or is going to be 15 free throws like he's got that that workman like 25 were steph it's like i'm gonna i'm gonna try to make fifteen three them a game which you from thirty feet away and like you know like this is the area of in vacationers and steph is like a but innovator that way he taps into the silicon valley in all of us oh that's good uh that is good drag don't try to fill now that's com yeah this is this is my evidence that it was already on here right exactly um so i watched him on saturday i was i was in staples centre for drought 45 onto one evans interpreter wallison and part of the people like oh well look who who's playing against of course he's going to drop it on him but if it's just it's still the way he does it like he was beating the clippers seventeen to sixteen on his own five minutes into the game right like he he it was so his performance was so deafening but at the same time like it was it was loud like a everything everything about it was was easy in you looked up hewlett holy shit he's got thirty points but at the same time you you felt every single bucket he was dropping on the end it and that's the thing to me.
