"And I just think, man, it's just going to be a grace. I think this is going seven. I mean, how can you not have this series? Go seven and then let's see what happens. But, you know, Phoenix is playing well. They played well now for about a year and a half. And they definitely need Chris Paul back out there to give them a little bit of an advantage. But the game Devin Booker had their maturity. The growth We've seen Devin Booker. She is definitely a superstar in my books, and I'm just excited to watch him continue to grow and development and put together performances like he did the other night. Jason Terry here with us. You know the Mavericks while you played there for a while, you won a championship. Like you said, you got the tattoo of the Larry O Brien trophy. Donny Nelson out after 24 years. Rick Carlisle, not coming back, had to react to all those changes last week. You know what? I'm a I'm a huge Donny Nelson Jr fan. He was here and in in Dallas in 2000 and four When I was here, he was as an assistant coach under Donny Sr. He gave me my biggest contract in my career, and he's a friend, You know? Not only was he a business partner, but he was a friend, and I hate to see him leave, but I mean he'll go down as one of the greatest. GM the Mavericks have ever had. He did great things, you know, obviously bringing dark, bringing Luca I mean, he's bar none. He's top exact, uh, in all of basketball, and then seeing Carlisle go. I mean, hey, that's my NBA championship coach. I mean, he's taught me so much about the game, the exit and all of the game. He was a mad scientist. When it comes, came two matchups and putting players in position to succeed. So he had a great run. Um, I wouldn't put it past anyone. To see Coast Carlisle in the near future on another bench in the NBA. He sat valuable to our league, and he's one of the good ones. So you know the Dow's matter of franchise. You know, Cuban, he's ultra competitive. We'll make sure he puts the right people in place would love to see Michael Finley. Um, you know, in that GMC He's a good friend of mine. Obviously, Dirk is back involved now. So, um there will be in good hands there under good leadership and You know, the Mavs got a great young star and Luca. They continue to build around him, and we'll see them making deep runs in the playoffs as well. There was that article in the athletic last week inside the Mavericks front office. Mark Cuban shadow GM is causing a rift of Lucca. Don checks. Do you have confidence that Luca is going to stay with the mass. There's going to be a long dark. One team run here with Luca dances with the Mavericks. It's always interesting when you see articles and you see people put things out there, but you never received direct quotes from Lucca himself and me knowing Luca, the way I do is he's a Hooper. Like he's not concerned about what management got going on and analytics and all that he's open. And if you watched him in these playoffs, you understand that right now he's busy in Slovenia getting ready for the Olympics and Um, so I know you entrust. You know, Cuban and the powers that be to to do the right things to put the necessary pieces around him. And, um, you know, he loves the city of Dallas. I mean, that's the city. I gave him his start and when you watch him play He wears the city on his chest and on his on his back, man. He's all in when it comes to Dallas, man. So, um, I don't buy into the rumors and I haven't seen any yet. Anything ever heard anything of it from his hand? Mark Cuban was talking about the relationship even brought up your relationship with dark when it first started when talking about K P and Luca Don Cheech. What would your message be to crystallize for Zynga's? Because I don't think he seems to be happy in Dallas is kind of the sense I get. Well, The one thing about it is is, you know you always want to self reflect and look at. You know what can I do? Um, to to help the team, the organization the franchise be better. And you know for him. He just has to remain healthy. I mean, I don't think he's played a four season. Uh, since he's been in the NBA and so healthy Christoper Zynga's Is a very, very viable. Uh 2nd 2nd guide next to Luca. He's very value on the defensive end for offensively stretches the floor. I just think you know for him. He has to get healthy. You know, he has to be healthy and feeling confident and good about himself. And I think they can make it work, man. I mean, you know, think about it is if they continue to go through the pitfalls of the rigors of the NBA season and playoff series. The fire burned deep enough. That you'll want to get out there and get to it. But, you know, I'd hate to see him go. But again, this is the NBA. It's a business and they're going to do whatever they have to, uh, to make their team better. Jason Terry, can you just speak a little bit more? Did you and and Dirk not get along at first and had you smooth that over? Well, you know for Dirk, You've got to look at what transpired. I mean, Steve Nash was not brought back, um, by by management. They didn't give him the contract that he was looking for. And so they brought me in to kind of take his place. Fill his shoes. So to speak, You know, that was darks. Best friend, a guy that he came to the Mavs and grew up with And they did everything together. So you know I had to win Dirk over. But the only way you can win a superstar over like dirt is you have to earn his respect. And for me, I only are ironed it on the floor and I turned it off the score. You know, late night shooting sessions. You know when he's down at the other end, I'm on the other end shooting and he's looking down there. He's seeing me make shot after sharp shot putting that work in and then he sees it carry over two games where he knows he can look down and see me and count on me in the fourth quarter when the game is really on the line. So I earned his respect over the years and eventually managed translated into a championship. And our relationship has been like big brother Little brother ever since. And so it is great man. Uh, last year, I would never have the amount of success. In my career without playing along Somebody hall of family like dirt with this supposed rift between Bob Vulgaris and Luca, Don cious vulgaris is contract is up after this post season. Do you think that the Mavericks should bring them back to you know anything about Bob Vulgaris? Don't don't don't know much about him..

Fresh update on "mavs" discussed on The M Zone
"Is Tiki Barber with the CBS sports Minute. Something is amiss with the Dallas Mavericks. There's been a lot of turnover already this short off season long time general manager Donny Nelson was fired. Longtime head coach Rick Carlisle decided he didn't want to return. And from reports it appears that Luca Dungeons has a spur under his saddle, supposedly upset with the front office. Maybe this explains all of the turmoil. Owner Mark Cuban knows that maybe more than winning keeping Luca and Big D is priority number one Dungeons is available. For a Supermax extension, which will likely sign But if he doesn't the Mavs would be starless and in need of a full rebuild, and that would kill their bottom line. So keep Luca happy. No matter what it takes. He bristled with the coach. See you later. He needs more stars around them. Peace out G M. Maybe it works. Maybe it doesn't. But it's hard to find fault with Mark Cuban giving it a try. I'm.

"Can you argue one eight two years old. He's only playing in his third year in the nba. I think ten playoff game ever play like he plays like it's one hundred. Whatever that pain in the neck he had in game four. He's turned into become a pain in the neck. For the la clippers by steve lamb. Joining us to talk mavs right now. David naming out today scott said. We're here with steve lamb. You know what they say. Those steve a series doesn't start until the home team wins. It's actually the opposite. It's usually the team. That wins a home game win this. Yeah isn't that crazy. We've had five games and the home team hasn't won yet and you were asking me during the break. Did i see the end of the game. Well it didn't tip off until nine o'clock made it through halftime. The clippers had an opportunity even though dallas had a ten point lead with a couple of minutes left right. They had a chance to go up. They were down one. Oh one to one hundred with about five seconds left. They found a and Quite leonard missed a an open three. Yes that would have put them up so they ended up losing at home again. So now the series is coming back here for a game six on friday night if the clippers win that they're going back to la for game seven. Which would be on sunday having announced the start time on that yet. But tim hardaway junior talking about Luca magic magic in the guy that this team that's guy weekend of back up any situation and get a moment and today would it would suck. It didn't come out with victories while he did Forty two points and fourteen assists and just dominated. It's amazing to me because this is a young team. The mavericks are really young team with young superstar and a young number. Two who hasn't really showed up. We can get to that in a little bit so when they went two games on the road and they come back and dropped two games at home. You're thinking okay. The series is done charles. Barkley said yeah. I know you probably want to get into the troll on Bartali 'cause he said dallas wouldn't win another game but it makes sense young usually don't bounce back from scratch mavericks in two thousand six. When they were in the finals against the heat they go up to l. and lose a heartbreaker and game three. They never recovered and this team is younger than that goes to. The stage is a little smaller in the first round versus finals. But they come back on game five and luca he had. I think it was what nineteen points in the first quarter. Yeah he was on pace for eighty points. You're like that's kobe level stuff. We've somebody compared until bron james and one of his Superstar with the cleveland when he was playing in cleveland My i'm i'm tired. Say it up last night. I think it was his birthday yesterday. Cleveland i'm going as cavalier. Oh oh that's the so. That's not a very eventful cities talking about his game and he thought maybe should have played better because he missed shining way. Better you know I missed a lot of shots. Some lineups that should make but it wasn't just stole teamed. Energy dutta was unbelievable or Energy capable the big shot with a shot of the whole team was just. They're bringing energy if we had a b. s. sound effects that went off when a player lied. It would be buzzing right now. It wasn't the whole team the whole team. I remember looking at the box. Score at halftime luca. Had i think it was twenty seven points or twenty nine points at halftime. no other mavs had double digits. I was like it was luca. Twenty nine and it was like tim. Hardaway that He was the only other player that got into double figures and he did come through clutch in the fourth quarter. Yes because luke kind of slow down in the fourth quarter. But i think clippers price said you're not beating us now. You're talking about map maps being a young team. They have a veteran coach. I think the reason they're they're still swinging away in this. Have one of the best coaches in the nba. They ever had the chip on their shoulder from getting beaten. The bubble by this clippers team last year. So it's going to be crazy. The atmosphere will be on friday night just like it was last friday and sunday. The fans were going nuts but here it is a chance to advance to the next round. That's going to be a wild atmosphere at the as you tomorrow. It's i don't know how much tickets are. I imagine on the secondary market. They're pretty dang expensive now but All right steve lamb giving us a recap of the mavs. Try to tomorrow. We'll see if they can. They can put a put a pin in this. I'm glad you didn't ask me to talk about the rangers who've lost now no team straight out of that. We're out of time..

Anthony Davis Lead Los Angeles Lakers Late Rally Past Orlando Magic 114-103
"Court Monday with Orlando and with Anthony Davis, who made his return to the court. A handful of days ago. Davis dribbling top of the key 80 step back to pointer. Good.

Ahead of the Mavs are Stephen A. Smith says Lakers need to get whole Yeah, there's a level of urgency, this kicking and as far as I'm concerned, and the reason why I say that it's not just because they've lost three straight and four of their last five I know that he's traveling with the team. He's been on the bench. He's been encouraging guys and all of this other stuff, but you need him because here's the reality of the situation. We could talk about Anthony Davis being healthy. LeBron James needed to be healthy. That's true, But there's such a thing is chemistry and cohesiveness guys being on the same place, just knowing what each other is going to do instinctually and I don't think that that's the case right now. And I think that the longer LeBron James is out, the more it's gonna affect this team. I think that even if you come back again, I'm not encouraging him to come back and he's still injured. Please don't get me wrong. I'm not going that extreme. But I'm saying in terms of waiting until you're absolutely positively 100% will damage they might need to be when you add 95. Lakers do get the win over the magic on Monday. SportsCenter all night

You don't have to debate between this guy or that guy. There's just one answer that just feels right you go with it, you know, that's that's the one and I'm going to have to go with it. I'm saying it now and I I feel like a majority of the chat is going to go along with this. I say the referees the officiating gets the message. Yes, all all three of them. I think there's three of them out there on the court. I think there's three masked Mazda shot. It goes to the officials bottom line. There was just too many fouls a lot of kind of ticky-tacky houses.

So we lost tonight and, you know, they made a game out of it in the, in the 4th. But I think the Lakers I would look for them to take on Saturday. So that that's what's getting me through trip. Yeah. And that's just it, right? Is that they we get another shot at this Saturday. The Lakers play the Mavs, again, obviously, this isn't good because the Mavs are chasing the Lakers in the same things, but you can kind of atone for for tonight by getting the win, come Saturday. And hopefully by then Anthony Davis will be a little bit more in Rhythm. Feeling a little bit, a little bit better. We certainly saw a lot of rust but but let's just dive into wage. To start Anthony Davis back out on the floor. First of all was just great to see him out there. What was your impression of his first game back in over 2 months? Well, you know as his offense didn't come to him. I think he was over its first five shots or something like that. So I mean he's got to get some offensive Rhythm. I've seen some people in the chat saying like he was in bad shape. I don't know if I want to go that part maybe maybe just in terms of you know full court basketball conditioning but I mean, what do you expect? He's been out like a couple of months off. I would expect even though he was coming back tonight. I didn't expect him to come back and be in full form. I mean, he was only playing he supposed to play 15 minutes ended up playing 17 minutes so long, you know, it's just one of those things I think we we just you know, ye she is back but we just need to kind of root for his health going forward and just kind of know that he's going to take a while to get in Rhythm. So we're going to have to be patient before we see, you know, the playoff a d so to speak.

"For a halftime slam. Dunk contest at the all star. Game a three point shootout and skills competition also expected to be part of the sunday night. Event sources said finalized. Details are expected later this week. And here's karl anthony. Towns on those plants agni-ii all game. I personally don't believe there should be an awesome game book. What the hell do i know. Obviously i have a double coat. Probably guide us some insight into that. What do i know about covid right. So i don't believe that should happen. But you know the world is world's council place where i wish selfish and I wish it was at this point when my mom was here. No could've made things a lot easier than if it gave me better chance better resources. But even for me. I felt i felt very upset and privately prostate now. If i feel very guilty about the treatment i got no. I feel that should be more widely available americans but anyone world. I know everyone has an opinion. On karl anthony towns but listen to that man. That is a good man thinking about other people that way and strong strong thoughts on the all star game and as he pointed out. Hey what do i know about covid recovered. What are your current thoughts on an all star game in the plan that they've got going right now. I'm gonna follow crime towns as lead. You know again. Like i have not dealt with cova the way him and his family and losing his mother and dealing with all that stuff but you know sometimes in the nba has done a better job than i think any sports league in the world of listening to their players. What are your concerns. What are your issues. How can we come to some sort of middle ground and right now. It doesn't look like that when the best players in the world. Don't don't think is needed when guys that would be first-time all-stars like the air and fox has come out and said like. I don't think that this is necessary. So even selfishly. He is a person that would be a first time all star and so if you listened to the players they don't think is necessary and so i'm just going to follow their lead. Yeah think richard hit it on the head and personally. I think racial we talked about this a few weeks ago. We were excited because we know how great the all star games have been in the past the competition levels been off the charts in the same day night. Weekend has been fun but i think richard hit it on the head. They didn't listen to their players. This time around in in my view on this is completely shifted after hearing the players..

Tying three in regulation and overtime he made some huge defensive plays after the game coach. Frank vogel said this be made several defense plays balanced with you. He's he's really leotards. Taken a match up of horford on on on certain situations. And you know it's west west matthews at two great defensive stops on on award for post ops as well But that's what brought brothers on both sides of the ball. You know why you know. Probably gonna be this year's mvp carrying the load offensively and your quarterback in the defense and the moon defense in the league and taking stuff assignments making these plays down the stretch so He's played terrific so espn actually asked one hundred media members. This is a poll. That tim bontemps conducts every year. It mimics the postseason awards voting with the points awarded for different guys for different places. He also tries to take a sampling of actual voters from different markets. You really get an accurate sense of what voters are thinking. Lebron in first place right now fifty three first place votes followed by joel embiid nickel yokich member. Embiid gets a lot of extra points for being second or third on people's valid. That's how tim said. The numbers kind of went out this time. Richard how difficult is it going to be then to balance lebron's mvp campaign because we know he actually wants another one we know he deserves to get another one and he thinks this is the year he could get it with. Also making sure is enough rest to get through to and be fresh for the playoffs. I with all due.

"Of a sudden it has to put six or seven players into contact tracing protocol. So the idea here would be to amend some of the day to day procedures so that you won't have to put as many players contact tracing. Keep them farther apart. Put some more measures then. It may be not have contact tracing so long so that you wouldn't have a devastating effect on a team who's playing the piano. Well i have to take what i get for a mile an hour. The bubble worked in orlando. So why didn't they do like certain bubble ho cities. I don't have an answer for you. I'm going to guess the nba player associates. Sation said. no. We're not gonna do that until we get to the playoffs and they've shortened the season just so they can kind of. Put these fires out on schedule. Yeah stay stay on schedule. They've already called off. Tonight's game between the chicago bulls in the box and celtics. So we're gonna have I think it's this is the third straight day a postponements. The they're trying to get in front of it but we were just talking about this. How do you get in front of this right. I mean some you. Walk down the street. And i'm wearing my mask. I'm doing everything i can. But then the guy going by you. Screw that. I'm i'm not going to be a part of this. These players are on top of each other when they're playing in spit and everything almost think makes you think. Let's go ahead and get it. Get it behind this. Yeah but then there's that one guy who dies he dies. Yeah and and i promise you the minute. The league has some at something that happens like that. they'll shut it down again. So meanwhile we're only about a month away from pitchers and catchers showing up to spring training camps. I guess everything is set to go. I would you be comfortable now. The mavs are going to play. Were supposed to play last night at the american airlines center. Yeah going to a game. No but then.

But i can't imagine that all the places that i've been i haven't walked through a badge and have no doubt you have. I mean i gotta tell you. I was very cautious. A couple of weeks ago went to the cotton bowl at. At and t. stadium where it was oklahoma. Florida plane brought in into a friend. Who was working security and said what are you doing here. And she had a little paddle where she just walked around. Reminding people that you need to have your mask on because once you get inside you've worn your mass to get entry. You don't have to wear it so you're sitting there. All of a sudden do have to wear it. Because that's the law. While i can tell you go to. Any sporting guarantee people aren't doing it but the mavericks are hit hard right now. The league apparently is modifying their health and safety protocols. But what the hell does that mean. I mean it seems like for for weeks every day. We would hear from vouch talking about well. We gotta do this. We gotta do that. Yeah we're doing it and nothing. Change it well.

"The forty nine k. L. i f. will usually when our hall of fame sports guy steve lamb comes in. We're talking about a disappointing cowboys loss. But since the cowboys are playing anymore we're talking about mavs basketball or the lack thereof because the mavs have had somewhat of a covid outbreak in. Steve is here to tell us all about it morning. Steve good morning. Although the cowboys should have some news yesterday they did. I've already replace. Mike nolan their defensive coordinator for one year under mike mccarthy Dan quinn the former head. Coach of the atlanta falcons kind of a surprise to you know he's got the hides on the wall as far as his reputation and being really good at having a defense on the field. Good sounds sounds hopeful. Well there's nowhere to go but that that's when the numbers they put up this year. What's going on with the nba. You know it's hard to believe it's been almost a year since the first. Nba player was removed from the court. In oklahoma said well we. We were just talking about that on the station where i have my job that it has been about a year that all of a sudden the league hit the brakes and everything was stopped. And that's because one of the players had come up with covid nineteen right now. We've got guys that we know. Have it but yet teams are playing although the mavericks only had we understand eight players available last night which isn't enough although i know there's only five guys on the court at a time but too many guys have tested positive. So do we have any numbers we know that maxi cleber during finish smith. Jalen brunson and josh richardson. Richardson smith and brunton. Are starters ruled out. In fact those three. I think are still in denver. Which is where the mavericks played last week. Last thursday and didn't play. Saturday against orlando. They're in quarantine or they haven't come home now. There are. i'm gonna go. Okay if i'm gonna get stuck in a city might as well be denver rocky hanging out But the game last night was Suddenly not cancelled but postponed. They were supposed to host the new orleans. Pelicans and we don't know if their next game which was supposed to play. Wednesday at charlotte will be played or not. Because they've gotta wait kinda see where they stand. These guys are getting tested. Daily trying to find out not sometimes once but twice. Brian win horse is an nba insider. And he has this taken where things stand while there definitely are positive tests happening. We know of a lot of what's really causing games to be. Postponed is the contact. Tracing one player gets a confirmed test and then all.

"Center on A. Whole statement, which are whole crowd and fans when. You're doing that at home, but I'm saying it's one thing to overcome those kinds of ours and that kind of deficit. So while the Lakers have disappointed me and I have my black on because that is a disappointment. While the Lakers have disappointed me the mavs, they showed a props to them Look I'm not GonNa, take away from them but let's be real. You GotTa be more disappointed with my clippers. Let's just talk about this. This is only a conversation because Luca if he hits the shot, let's say the Utah Jazz is this leading our show is this national news? No. One. Who Are you playing against the Utah Jazz Lower Expectations Oh. What is really exciting to riot and make people go Hallelujah is the fact that he did it against. Potential, world champions did it against the clippers so as really that disappointment a clippers all here long you and others have been saying Y'all playoff ready team all your long. The focus has been on when his team place together plays health even though they're not right now still the jailing. The playoffs and what we're seeing right now is them trying to hit the switch and the switch Betsy as firing up like they wanted to. So I'm looking at the clippers right now as I've seen so many talented guys growing up and it's the curse of the gifted. I don't know if you've witnessed this is happens to individuals and his happens to collective teams. You have individual who was so talented and I know a few and I'm not gonNA call him out 'cause they make.

"It looks like Dan Frees up their Stephen A. Dance. Dance Signal froze, but we'll get back to the second listen. The bottom line is this I don't want to hear about not picking him on the cowboys. Definitely. You should because think about it. The Dallas cowboys defense wasn't that great last year they need improvement and they ne- personnel. At your roster if you Mike McCarthy, the look at the Jalen Smith's cater the late vander ashes of the world and others woods ha ha Clinton dix and all this other stuff. But you need an accumulation of talent because whether it was due to injuries or other things. The fact of the matter is they're once reliable weapons that we looked at the cowboys and saw and even formed over there is not necessarily the case potentially at this particular moment in time I was strolling my advice Mike McCarthy to allow this Earl Thomas acquisition to be something he encourages because they need all the talent that they can get reliable talent on the defensive side of the ball. There's no question about that. Yeah it was deserted the and also they could use veteran leadership. I think considering how often those linebackers were exposed especially Stephen A. He's a safety but. I it was it was bizarre to me that going into last season if you're looking at linebacker tandems and basically talent at that level in the NFL, you might take Dallas I dad look at that Talat and yet they were consistently exposed. So if you can get defensive help particularly a veteran, you do it on the other hand again, if the Ravens are willing to just give this dude, the boot, even if it might mean, they risk a real cap it. Just what's reported, what we know about what hasn't been reported that's where my mind goes and you don't want to be smirked reputation even of a player who has a reputation maybe for Off Field trouble not huge. But still maybe team chemistry disrupting kind of stuff. But nevertheless, that's where your my that's where my mind has to go how big a problem is this the stuff we don't know that they're willing to. Over a fight fights happen all the time over fight trying to get ten million dollars from a player who can help you. I don't think they think he can't help on the field I. think it might be a real problem. Let. Me Say this last segment. Statement before we go when you are unhappy where you are particularly in a volatile sport like football, it's going to show itself in a myriad of ways. It may not be that your problem per se. You just might want to project the image of being a problem. So you can get out of a situation you don't want to be in. That's entirely. Cashier. Sydney considered especially where you want be a cowboy when you know where you want to be. You have to pay attention to that. Next cal, he's a friend of the show and he is that dude, tell me this do think him in bridgewater can head to the playoffs this season. I think it's possible. I know. I know. I know I know. The defense not great last year still not going to be great. Probably this year probably, not good enough for even a really good offence to overcome if you have continuity and all that stuff which they don't with a new quarterback, I know all the reasons that you should not say the panthers can make the playoffs however. Let me start with like really stupid mainstream sports analysts guy take. Okay. Bridgewater's. Like he's except for his rookie season where he was pretty good and I had a pretty good, he's he wins a lot more than he loses. Well, he's a game manager. Yeah. But that's can sometimes be exactly what you need. Now I know you have turnover all over the place, not just a quarterback, but it head coach so you don't know what you're getting, but just because you don't know what you're getting, not making them to win the division but just because you don't know what you're getting doesn't mean it's impossible that you're getting something good especially with like you know you got a guy like radio who was highly sought after. You may be getting something very good and in if you look at the at Bridgewater's track record and then you look at McCaffrey the kind of weapon he has there if you want to focus on those two guys Kathy just put up one of the greatest backs runningback seasons ever and I know, Stephen Eight nowadays, a lot of that is because running backs or not just running back. That's right. But he right now is the best example of that. He's old world McCaffrey and bridgewater like look when Cam went down again I know different quarterback difficult. They were good I mean with the original shoulder injury they were pretty good and they got pretty bad not awful last year five of the five games last year. If they improve upon that three or four games, which is possible, they'll be in contention. Or. You know something match you use the word, it's not impossible. It's not impossible. Guess. What if I go to hear club for men I might not I might not have a receding hairline any longer you know what I'm saying if I learned that you. Might be able to shot Joe Rogan. I mean there's a whole bunch of stuff that I might be able to do. If I studied boxing, even more might be able to work alongside Max Kellerman. I mean Damn. Mex- Gullit. Guess anything's possible if. You. Make. The incident the question however is hell. No they're not going anywhere this year. You Got Teddy Bridgewater relatively pedestrian quarterback Christian McCaffrey all world I get that a thirteen hundred yards rushing. Yards receive in over one hundred and one hundred, sixteen receptions rather this is all world. No question about it matter of fact I think it's the reverse effect of. Know I called Rachel discriminates for crying out loud if Christian McCaffrey will black. We have been talking about how lethal this brother was coming out of Stanford because he's debt legitimate, he's that big top but I don't think they have much of a team. You've got a first year coach Matt Rule, who was a college coach last year as opposed to inexperience God no one in the NFL like Iran repair off into the big. Compromising DJ Robbie Anderson there. But I mean, these brothers could play holiday all world note then you gotTa take into account that defense like you brought up I don't need to regurgitate point and then last not least how about the division they're playing and let alone conference you got Atlanta. In the you've gotten all New Orleans obviously and now Tom Brady and Tampa I assume Carolina will be last place that's how I'm looking at it. They might battle with Atlanta for it but I. Think they're going to be a last place in the division. There's no way as far as I'm concerned that they're making the playoffs I'm not even thinking about them at the playoff team I'm just thinking about the new main. Water wit McCaffrey. What chemistry is there and how they develop I don't think they're doing anything other than that this year. Well. You may be right. They're not a bad pick for last place in that division, but I'll remind you of something Joe. Brady after the season that that borough just had was among the most sought after coaches at any level in the world and that's the offensive coordinator Steven. So it's Teddy. Bridgewater whose only basically one twice as much as he's lost as a quarterback in the NFL post rookie season, he's been he's been better than that. With an offensive coordinator who everyone seemed to want and the best running back hybrid receiver everything guy in the world at the moment. I mean I love Saquon Barkley but just based on the evidence off the last season even couple seasons you'd have to say it was McCaffrey so. Yes they're also not a bad pick to finish last in that division, but I would not rule them out for playoff contention even with the defense that was bad and retooled in the offseason maybe maybe it gets worse I still wouldn't rule them out..

"As opposed to going to South Beach Jj rhetoric that could be a management decision make no mistake about it. But one of the things you highlight Max was JJ. Redick was a liability defensively. Well, it's. I considered him a sniper somebody that needed to be on that squad. And obviously, you know what you could have had some influence over those guy staying as well. All of these things collectively I think when you look at the potential coaches out there tomorrow Jackson's the Thai lose of the world and others. There are better options for this collection of talent to make a decision ultimately about embiid and Simmons and whether or not we should keep them together which I think you. Should do there are better coaches to maximize their potential other than Brett Brown, that's why I believe that he should not be the head coach of the Philadelphia. Seventy sixers any longer and I predict by the end of the day tomorrow by twelve noon at the latest, the sixers will be announcing that they have replayed. They have a relieved Brett Brown of his duties as head coach at. Philadelphia seventy. sixers. Well I respectfully disagree because I think you make a good argument. I. Think you could also make an argument that Elton brand hasn't done a great job as a GM. I think you could also make an argument that Josh Harris and ownership by forcing brand to keep Bryan Colangelo some of his staff instead of really empowering brand to do his job is also you blame all these but if you're saying who's most to blame the biggest factor here is the Ben Simmons didn't play I mean simple if we're talking about a sweet, why did they get swept Ben Simmons didn't play Stephen You talked about this collection of talent. This is the island of misfit toys bright constructed this roster. Now I thought it was interesting I like the fact that they got Horford in the season considering never losing Butler they got back Richardson who if he's having a good shooting year you think maybe he can shoot it well, enough blessing place. Plus he's cheaper obviously not going to be a contract guy obviously but also still sending maybe Oh that's a nice replacement I see what they're doing there and. Then being gone were his transition defense was terrible last year but obviously, he can shoot it. They need the shooting but to going with more of a defensive squad in fact, just taking Horford away from Boston who did a great job on 'em beat in the playoffs that's going to help them and I had no idea that Horford looked like was a shot player basically at this point or was capable of playing the four and playing alongside embiid. I had no idea about that. So I liked this roster they put together knowing it was flawed knowing they couldn't shoot but I see what they're doing. It didn't work out that way Al Horford looks over the hill and he can't play next. 'EM EMBIID Richardson's not giving them enough shooting and neither is anyone else. So given that situation this collection of talent is you say needs to have all their players available particularly one of their best players, Ben Simmons was the best defensive player in the world in my opinion this season he also, yeah, you have to put them in the dunker spot in the playoffs and all this stuff. He's still very valuable offensive piece if you take from a collection of misfit. Pieces you take the most were second most important player off completely and you put them in against a very well coach and very talented team that can shoot. This is what happens. Well. My retort would be this. If you recall a couple of years ago into postseason two, thousand, seventeen, twenty, eighteen, the Boston Celtics took the Philadelphia Seventy sixers out in five games they were up three Oh in that series Ben Simmons was on the floor at that particular moment in time and highlighted it was the first time in my career I saw coach lose three straight playoff games I saw Brett Brown admit that the T- wasn't prepared the game one I saw celtics make a pivotal run in game two and he didn't making substitutions didn't make Any adjustments and didn't get Joel Embiid the ball game number three when you need it at three point shot, he had jj Redick inbounding the ball and his argument was we worked on that play all year long well, double Brad Stevens knew that to why he was prepared to defend against it and they ultimately lost that series in five games. If you call, you bring up Elton Brand Elton brands only been on the job two years. You've got a situation where Brown this seventh complete season and he's had three full years to show that after. The. First four years of a Mulligan you to his direction that some progress needed to be made. I think we all see the sixers going in an opposite direction and in terms of ownership, nobody's absolving them from accountability because you gotta find a way to keep a Jimmy Butler and keep this team intact. But last year when they lost the series took Hawaii and seven games there was a game at least or two pivotally where Joel embiid didn't show up. We will also looking at the coach saying you got to appeal this stuff out of. These dudes. You GotTa, make sure that you got young vibrant stars and you're holding them accountable. They're doing kind of things that you coach them to do instead of being seven want standing out in the three point line and getting your big behind and post and being a man amongst boys. These are all things we've periodically brought up about ground and the fact of the matter is we have not seen elevation. We have not seen improvement and there does come a time. It's not about you being a coach it's about the needs to be a change. I look if you want to argue Brett. Brown. Is Not a great coach. I think he's a good coach is not a great coach I. Agree with that. If they had Ben Simmons, they wouldn't have been swept. That's the point. The sweep is because they didn't have Ben Simmons. Okay. They would've lost in five. To the NFL we go. The Ravens have released Earl Thomas after an education with a teammate. The Ravens announced they terminated Thomas's contract for personal conduct that has adversely affected the team both more expected to tried avoid ten million dollars guaranteed salary the season and Thomas is expected to file a grievance. Source told her Adam Schefter Thomas punched his teammate. Chuck. Clark in Friday's practice. Here's coach Mike McCarthy. Well, actually. Conversations I've been involved with a chance to give a thorough personnel meeting just just just the today's ago and. You know we're we're we're very confident and and where we are as far as the. Eighty man roster so as far as. Any prospect that's that's available. You know those those are more conversations for. For Jerry Stephen and will mcclay as far as looking at. That situation. So I I have nothing really to report. Let me give some context why we just jump to coach Mike McCarthy sound obviously now, coaches the cowboys they're the leading contender to potentially sign Earl Thomas which would absolutely huge. You know what else is huge news dinner Lobski here and he's got a new show today four PM Eastern, the new crew debut in on NFL lives. So Dan Great to have you with US enjoy certainly be watching you and Laura and Meena and Marcus Spears. All people we love. All right. Let's get Stephen A. What do you think? Should the cowboys right? Should the cowboys bringing Earl Thomas? I think inequality team should bring in a row Thomas at the safety position right. Now your options, Xavier Woods, or ha ha Clinton Dix When you look Earl Thomas who's a perennial all pro we know that he's wanted the best safeties as far as I'm concerned football, he was clearly the best safety that the ravens had available at their disposal. Last season had about forty nine tackles. We know what he brings to the.

We are not worthy all respect Max from some heavy hitters in the game flee. So mass tell me this. Are. Your. Clippers in danger of falling. Yes they are i. told you this was the worst first round match up. You could get because the mavs were my darkhorse. We're my sleeper picked before the season. I, like the clippers from the very beginning but if you ask me who had an outside shot. Thought it was the match I didn't think they'd be ready this year. I think the shutdown really helped porzingas, but he wasn't even in the game yesterday. gave him more time to get back but he wasn't in the game I mean they're missing their second best player who by the way has been playing MVP level in the bubble take an MVP caliber player often team and you do that and I know the Clippers didn't have Patrick Beverley and it's not even knock. I know dock after the Games where we are not there emotionally or mentally physically defense offense I get all that but this can. Happen to anyone against this mavs team that's what I'm saying, Steven A. The mavs our lives to go all the way right now lucas not playing games, and by the way we've seen in his age nineteen season. He turned twenty during the year Magic Johnson lead the Lakers to a championship and Kareem wasn't there and in the finals he gave him forty, two fifteen and seven shopping center right? It's not like it's never happened before that a special kind. Of. High usage. Ball, controlling rookie or or young something player can do something special postseason. That's what we're seeing some Luca doctors right now he was the best player on the floor that included Kawhi Leonard. Everybody. He was the guy controlling the game every time you got a sense in the game they needed something. Came up with it member before the series started some guys you have to wait to see him do it but boy something about not just their resume they've competed at different ages against older people and all that stuff. But there's something about me like a bunch of that guy is something I liked I liked the smell of this guy under pressure that's Luca and it came through without porzingus. Now, if you look at the guys who got heavy minutes last night. I mentioned the defensive front. Court, with clear and finished Smith is very good and then they got all kinds of scores and playmakers in the backward seth curry can shoot it a Tim Hardaway junior is finally I think reach the potential that people saw for his whole career when they were calling like a really good player when he was only pretty good player, he's okay. Now he's really good now Trey Burke, all those guys that got traded from the Knicks has always been a special ofensive player everywhere you look Stephen they got guys even without Porzingis and on top of all that they have argued the MVP the bubble when you start to look at guys James Harden Damian Lillard. Lebron James. Luca Church at this point by has to give a vote after last night. Maybe Luca. It's a whole lot of and they're ready. It looks to me Stephen Right now first of all, I, first of all a couple of things number one Lucas Detroit Lucas the truth. Lucas. The best. I'm going to say it on national television Lucas. The best white boy I've seen since Labor this brother is something special I'll give a damn Dirk Nowitzki Minute Ginobili all of them this brothers on another level make no mistake about that, and he just reminded us of that last night to be on a soft left ankle and drop a triple double with forty, three, seventeen and thirteen I mean damn, aid, Boston they're living. You know what? Having said, all of that Max Kellerman having set all of that Max Kellerman as much as you. Annoy me what I usually give you credit for you. Usually wait about five or ten minutes to really get on my last damn nerves. You didn't even wait ten seconds to do that on this particular Monday morning and I'm more I'm upset you molly as well because you letting Max get away with this. Let me get this straight. Let me get this straight all the noise you talk about Kawara Linnet all this noise you've been talking about all these the last couple years back wild let it and this brother does not switch off. This. Allows himself to switch off and not defend. Lucas. Dodge. Let me ask you a question rhetorically molly who the hell did know that Luca Danni was getting the ball. It was go suitable who didn't know that now last summer. God God breast player in the world he averaged thirty. You missed the. Game the. Excuse me I. Asked you to speak brother. You spoke enough Aloysius ruin in on you Max. Co-, Why let it taught me to press stop the president two time champion two time league MVP why did he win that first NBA Finals Mvp? Was it not his defense when you talk about what makes them the greatest player in the world and? Is it not defense Luca Danni is averaging thirty, one and ten, and now point eight. Whatever I mean suck like he's averaging damn near a triple double shooting over fifty one percent from the field daily thirty, eight percent for three point. Great. But they're living you know what? And Max has nothing to say to bring up anything about. Literally, allowing himself to be switched off. So Reggie Jackson couldn't defend them. That's inexcusable. Love. SPEC. But Damn you got to step up and your business on the defense out of ball do something else Max. I'm a call on my man doc rivers. You know how much I love down here with this a champion and ultimate motivator Love Doc, rivers I'm sorry stews make came wait double Luca Dot k. wait get the ball out of his damn.

"I went from on hearing on the radio on the Mexican woman show to four PM EASTERN ON ESPN radio. ESPN news. Stephen as you know. Roosevelt went from talking a lot of bledsoe to talk a lot of even even Chen Zone on the air is because he needs help the freak needs help and if you're middleton you are. You're good. All Star but not the kind of go get your own shot Kinda starring crunch time that playmaker guy when you can take the freak off the ball that you really need. So you need someone else to step in Bledsoe has the talent but he has been he's not a great shooter and he's been unable to do it in the playoffs consistently. So I look at David, Chen Zo who was the best player on the floor when won the national title scored a lot excellent defender who handles it and shoots it just well enough maybe to be that guy to really help the freak out at middleton out assuming Middleton can get his game when they need them. But I think what's on the line for the Free Stephen A if they lose is his position in the constellation of NBA stars, it wasn't long ago where I was thinking if this dude gets his his shot a little better from the outside and improves handles by a little bit he could go down as the greatest player of all time like if he shot thirty three, thirty, four percent from three and he was and he was handling a little better 'cause, he handles it well for a big doesn't handle period right? Who's better than him? He's like then he could get it done in the playoffs and then he starts racking up chips at seven feet tall doing all that stuff he starts to challenge Jordan the way takes it hard to the whole and the way he plays defense. But that hasn't happened because he's been stopped in the playoffs and given it may be. Getting better three point shooter, he's shooting over thirty percent. Now, taking a under two shots a game but more than a three, a game which he hasn't done in the past if that trend continues, that's all well and good but Stephen this just may be who he's going to be. He may already be there a great player who really is more of a big than anything and you need to get him help right and but if he keeps getting stopped in the playoffs that will be his reputation and he will settle down below Lebron and K. D. Kawai and the guys who you don't need that crime partner who can handle from WHO. which is a little harder to find nowadays. So I think that's what's on the line for the freak. Max Janas game has already had US put respect on his name, your honest Google unto I'm going to stay his full name because Nigel not carry. Last Janas is a generational talent you mentioned it and when it comes to those type of impactful players, we have to start realizing that loyalty and legacy are two completely different things are how loyal player is legacy usually wins right? Because we define players careers largely by championship. So that's what's at stake legacy, and also as athletes we judge ourselves by our legacy, how have impacted the game now when you're two time MVP, which is Likely, to be and also have a coach of the year, the pressure to deliver a championship will continue to increase especially when there's no choir Lebron and your conference. Now, we all know that Janas brings not only dominance, but also joy to Milwaukee he seems at home his brothers there he and his wife just welcome to beautiful boy and Milwaukee. There are noticed actions. Let's be real now. This is why we saw him go from 'em Ip most improved player to MVP, and his team is also level wind up with them. We Talk Chris Middleton Stephen as listed the mall like. These, guys are all trying to level up their game but this in reality is his seventh season in the NBA and that's around when players start. In their prime start getting that championship ish and their patients is tested and and the pressure keeps rising. You guys mentioned it. Jaanus is a humble guy with humble beginnings. But not when he steps on the court when he's hoping, he's a monster thirty points fourteen rebounds six assists yet and less minutes last year. So I've always told people when you have a top player, your teammates are the ones auditioning for you to stay for. You to stay at home if there's no team success for the bucks again, the voices around the league and honest year will continue to get louder and louder, and that's where we see legacy start edging out loyalty. Well, if you WANNA if you WanNa, talk about your teammates basically, you know recruiting you stay what have you just paraphrasing you there? Well, you know what you could not have more of an appropriate moment to bring that. Up because what I watched Chris Middleton performing game against New Orleans, and I've watched him performing the bubble. He hasn't been that impressive and he certainly wasn't impressive in game one with fourteen points. I'm sorry. Do you realize that? Christmas is paid more than the Greek freak right now get paid thirty million dollars goes up to thirty three, thirty, five, thirty, seven gotTA play option five years from now forty million, overall one, hundred, seventy, seven. Million dollars or more. So than more than that a little bit more than one hundred and seventy, seven, million dollars in Milwaukee. So understand they recognize that unless the draft takes place and you look up in that fashion or you're able to pull off a heist during the trade that's the only way you're going to build this team because you're not gonNA get any marquee free agent to calm, which means they're Chris Middleton that supplementary piece. Coupon you got to show up and you don't have to be a superstar, but you need to be that all star that you are you need to be that reliable. Give me about twenty, five thirty, and if he ain't doing that, that's more of a reason for Janas to want to get the hell up Outta the. I totally agree with that point also because the gravity of your second best player especially when your best players, not a shooter is going to affect the shooting of the rest of the team. When you look at the Mavericks Right now, they have to deal with Luca and PORZINGAS. So everyone is a shooter like however much they shoot they shoot steph curry's shooter anyway but you know I brought up. Hardaway junior or Cleveland everyone's bombing from long range. When you look at the bucks this year Lopez? Had an off year shooting especially compared to last year from long range. BLEDSOE's not a shooter diva Chen's does not really a shooter. And and that is going to get worse not better. If Middleton is not is not like a gravitational force because his he's not hitting shots, he's got to be bigger than he's been. Honest could be staring a supermax contract right in his face soon, and so I think the pressure is on but more. So I, love it when I come on here in both of you guys agree after I talk like I just feel like a peacemaker brokering. Radio host point of this show. Channel. who like the referee who had talked? Out of their dispute, they would settle it. They would sell it. Instead of fighting. I love it today I, have a great segment, all your radio show. Because, you brought up the fact about, Yoenis his real name, his roots are Nigerian. Why don't you guys come up with a new nickname for him like, Greek Freak. It's gotta go not into it. Let Let. swaggie. McKay's my better than spicy P.. The name. Wise. Not Nigeria I don't know now. With the Greek freak. Spicy P is a problem. You know what else keeps delivering the and be a Dame Lillard the best player in the world right now that according to our Stephen, a Smith will try to help his team take down the top seed Lakers in second straight game tonight the Lakers have struggled to find their stride in the bubble and ad says, the team needs to improve their offense to overcome the blazers tonight in game two, we know they couldn't make any threes take a US into the brow. US. but. just got got time at the ramp. Say, go,.

"And he dribbles, dribbles, dribbles, dribbles dribbles, and then he shoots, but in the playoffs he gets trapped constantly where he can't ever really get a quality shot up. He turns the ball over Awadh. He shoots highly contested shots, not very good shots, and so teams have found a way to beat him. They don't change their offense. They continue to run the same style. He does not come off screens or curls or anything like that consistently enough and so yeah. He struggles in the playoffs. He'd also doesn't get the same calls. Which I think is a little unfair to him because if you're GONNA call it, House. He doesn't get the same same calls that he gets, but I think they found a way to beat them. And that is since they're not going to change their offense just trap. Get the ball out of his hands. Make somebody else, score and Westbrook. I mean just doesn't have a reputation for making. Decisions good decisions in the playing well and also his shooting. There's there's always the idea and I think last year he had moments where he was a better three point shooter. But the the thing is like for his career. He is not a very good shooter, much less like three point shooter so I think that's a problem now in last year's playoffs, because the way that team started playing hard, in which was like basically from the side or from behind. You know he never took a mid range shot, and that's why they did it because they knew he was never gonNa take mid range shot, so if they could take out, take away the three-point shot, and then take away the a layup having a guy down low then left amid mid range open in which normally it's like. Yeah, you don't want a guy. Give a guy an open shot, but he was. Was Never GonNa take it, so that was why it worked, but there was the idea if he developed a floater or a runner that it really shutdown that defense completely, and he kind of started developing developing that as series went on, and so I wonder if he's worked on it even more, and if now he's able to combat data defense. We'll see the thing with Westbrook to go back to him. Him is when he's confident his shots in and whenever he's streaky. Yeah, well, that's the thing when you're going against a lesser opponent. You know your team is better. It's easy to be confident and so the Mavericks He may be on fire. You may hit the shots when he needs to hit them, and he may make plays when he needs to make plays because he feels confident because they think that. That they're better than the Mavericks, but that ultimately comes to an end when he played better team, the pressure is on a little bit more now. You have to make these in order to beat this team. He doesn't do very well with that historically well, and also those better teams, their defense is GonNa be better, so he's not like some of the stuff that he's able to get enforced censorship jumpers. And crown him when he goes into the Lane Hill. SHOOT SOME WILD WAY UP, yeah! Bounce it off the backboard half court. So we talked about the mouse offense. We talked about their their starting lineups. One other trend that we saw this year was their problems in executing in the clutch. And that got really frustrating at times, but I think also we had to recognize that there just a young team. That's kind of part of it. Yeah, and I shared this. At one point The mavs clutch rankings. They were like twenty eighth. Their offensive rating was twenty in the Clutch Offensive Rating was twenty eighth defensive rating with Seventeenth Net rating twenty fifth. And then I went back and looked at the Oklahoma. City Thunder team from two thousand eleven days. It was kind of the same thing. They were this young team that had stars, but they were still very young that season. The thunder were twenty, one twenty, four in clutch, games their offense rating was twenty eighth in the Clutch Net rating was twenty seconds. That's almost identical to what the mavs had his year, so again I think it's just a symptom of being a young team. However I mean just naturally. That's really gonNA hurt them in the playoffs. Oh Yeah I, mean definitely obviously if you're playing against a team does better. It's not gonNA affect you, but it's when you are in a close game against a better team. You can't execute and they can. Yeah, it's going to. It's going to hurt them and probably will end up being why they lose like they. Even let's say the clippers they may be in every single. One of those games may a hard-fought series and then. Then they lose four one in the whole series, but every game was close. It's just because couldn't finish. They couldn't close games out and I think the Lakers might be the same thing like if those games are close I, don't see the mavs winning close games against the Lakers, because even if whatever kind of question marks they have, they're definitely veterans, and they have guys like Lebron Davis, who can execute in the clutch and even? If you have Rondo out. He's not going to make a mistake even if he maybe doesn't have a certain skill. Yeah, I mean I think there's a discussion for another pod whether we'll Braun and Anthony Davis actually good in the clutch. Will I mean let's yes so. I mean Davis okay, so my thing with Davis is that I am willing to give him credit because he obviously has a ton of skill and has led teams to the playoffs, and all of that I get that, but he hasn't won anything like this guy didn't win not rookie of the year MVP. Deep runs in the playoffs like he hasn't won anything, so he's a top five. Yeah, yeah, so it's like I'm willing to give him credit. I do think he is a great player and I think that's part of why the mass will struggle against them, but I mean yeah, I guess there's a limit to how much credit this is the media for you. You know they will. They will give one player so much credit all the free. Done, anything all the free passes in the world and then other players. They have to earn it with their blood. You know like the they have to win. Everything in order for them to be considered a great player in the league will. It's like Dirk he could have ended his career as he did without a ring and he wouldn't get any credit. People would say Anthony Davis is a better place. He could finish with thirty thousand points six all time scoring, and every all these other accolades like people don't even. Even talk about how many lists he is top ten in or the only guy to do this in this, but without a ring he wouldn't get any credit and I. Get it like winning. A championship definitely changes things, and I'm on the side of how if you don't WanNa ring then you were only so great, really but like before that with Anthony Davis kind of being still, I guess not early in his career, but he's still kind of a young player. He does get a ton of credit for. Not doing nothing done. So on a note I watched the West stance. Yeah, and so all those players in the nineties listening now to all the last dance recap podcasts..
