But I just think the experience of winning titles helps you.

I think it was a six point game. No, I did not feel comfortable. Our defense was good. But I also thought we'd benefited from the schedule, you know, we we were able to finish our last series on Friday, and they had to go to a tough game seven in Denver and a quick turnaround.

But the warriors blitz them down the stretch and won easily won sixteen ninety four to take game one of the western final. Steph curry made nine three point shots finished with a game. I thirty six points, and he was particularly pleased to see the warrior bench contribute. So many points confidence s contagious for sure so uses interesting is took a certain style. And the first five games game six we obviously had to going out through those forty minutes with the most two guys Quin Zo JV even Jonas as well. They all work with the work in they're not afraid of the moment. And the warriors defense also did a great job containing the Portland dynamic duo of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum that back court combined to hit only eleven of thirty one shots against a very tenacious warrior defense. But steve. Cursing. He never felt comfortable and you never feel that comfortable NBA coach in any any game. Everyone's got talent this team with McCollum Lillard. We know what they're capable of. We've seen both of them. Just have huge nights in the playoffs. CJ game. Seven was incredible. The other day we go into the fourth. I think it was a six game.

The warriors clearing out the blazers in game one of the western finals Meghan with a one sixteen ninety four win. And again that really doesn't indicate how close it was. Although the warriors lead throughout they went into the fourth quarter with only six point lead. But blew out the blazers thirty nine twenty three where they burst of points, namely off the shooting hand of Steph curry who led the way with thirty six at nine fifteen from distance the warriors knocked in seventeen shots from beyond the arc out thirty-three tried and that pretty much did the blazers in Portland also could not get their backcourt tandem, Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum free as often as they would have liked. They had only eleven thirty one collectively Lillard with nineteen McCullum was. Seventeen klay. Thompson took a lot of shots. Twenty four tonight hit ten of them. He had he finished with twenty six warriors bench did a really nice job tonight as they headed depend from time to time on the guys coming off the bench like Jonas Gerashchenko nine points and Quinn cook who had a date, and the the warriors are going to be using a lot of players against a team that Portland brings in here unlike against Houston, which require different matchups. So the warriors looking good in game. One ask Steve Kerr afterwards. If the warriors ever felt comfortable in this game. Even though they lead throughout did you ever feel that sense of comfort that the this game was in their hands? You never feel that comfortable NBA coach in any any game. Because everyone's got talent. And especially this team McCollum Lillard. We know what they're capable of move seen. Both of them just have huge nights in the playoffs. CJ game. Seven was incredible. The other day and Damian. Those without saying, you know, what he's what he's done. So we go into the fourth. I think it was a six point game. No, I do not feel comfortable. You had no reason to feel comfortable Portland's one of those teams at going streaks. But the warriors again writing that emotionally uplifting. Win over Houston. Last week win this game it convincing fashion down the stretch. They blew Portland away thirty-six again for curry won sixteen of Ninety-four. Impressive win earlier tonight. New Orleans was celebrating. They got the number one pick in the lottery. So that means that Zion. Williamson the prize freshman out of Duke will probably go to New Orleans, barring some last minute change of heart. Memphis will take number two Knicks number three Lakers four and Cavaliers number five eastern hockey finals the game three goes to Boston. So the Bruins lead. Carolina three games to none.

Baseball giants getting pounded by the visiting Toronto. Blue Jays seventy three that came in the ninth inning Guerrero has hit a couple of platinum or grow junior. I should stay in a couple of long home runs. Well over four hundred and thirty feet tonight. Pablo Sandoval two run Homer gave the giants. Their early runs against seven of three.

"It would be Portland. We'll have a great chance of winning game six on their own floor. But I just I feel like without Kevin Durant. You could do it for a short amount of time. Right. Are desisting that why feel like if let's say Durant doesn't play. I mean, the Portland backer, it's within the realm of possibility. The Portland back court can outplay the war. You're back court that is certainly within the realm. A possibility. The problem is they can do that. But if the warriors are still sitting with the rant it might not be enough, but if McCollum Lillard play well as well as the war, you're backorder outplays him. And there's no Durant. Well, then I think they're going to beat them. The biggest thing is during that Denver's if you watch and people were like on Lillard a little bit. They put Jamal Murray on CJ McCollum and CJ just went off. So I, I don't like Steph Curry's better definitive Jamal Murray. Right. Your mammaries awful defender. And he doesn't have a presence at all. These Steph has, like he has like, he knows what he wants to opponent to do. I think dollar with guard. One of those two guys law as well as Klay Thompson, I just think you run out of gas offensively guarding like that. And they'll put a big body on staff. It's going to be a great this series is going to be a great series because Durant is not playing game five so how every I gave one we don't know game to. We don't know. But once Kevin Durant comes back and date, get back on the same page, Portland bed or have like they're going to have to have some kind of heroin performance because once you add into that mix..

"Chicago. Free for God's sake. That's what it sounded like. Illness. Enough yet thirty three last night. He played better. It's a matchup situation. I understand. And you know, what he's not the first big star to lay o'clock. I just hate the fact that he's letting everybody know, hey, if I don't play good because I'm sick and the media and the next thing is Toronto. Kawhi Leonard is he he's been advertised this is where you separate dmed from the boys, and this is going to be a gigantic matchup between two guys want to win so bad and it's Jimmy Butler. And that's quite Leonard, Gary, this is why you got quite Leonard feel raptors you you you might need to win this game to make sure that to ensure that you resign them or to help your causing resenting. Maybe they have to get to the finals for that. I don't know. But if they lose this game seven at home that's not going to be good for their future with Kawhi Leonard. Just. For four boy, I would be on him. But he he takes responsibility. I think he sees a good organization. I hope he stays there. I think it's good for the league. Not every superstar wants to go here or there, you know, L A or New York as we've seen so I, but you're right. I think it can tinted a little bit time. But I hope he's basing it more than just a game seven. Now. I think the best series has probably been the Portland Denver series, Mike. Here we go. We got a game seven Portland forces a game seven with a big win last night. Mccollum in Lillard were awesome. They sort of have to be for Portland to win when they play like that Portland is really really good. The nuggets are going to be laying five and a half as of now. And again, you know, we're on Friday night. These games are Sunday. This could change a little the nuggets are laying five and a half in Denver total to twelve and a half little early money. Here is favored the nuggets, according to some of the offshore books when they open this. They headed a little bit lower. But. Caesar's and William Hill did open this one at Denver, minus five and a half. This has been the best series to me. I just think it's been loads of fun to watch. Even last night was another fun game. Well, the joker is great to eight Damian Lillard one of my favorite players, as you know, I've been right? Yeah. The playoffs. But now you've got two of my favorite players in the NBA guys that actually wanna play every game. Don't get a whole lot of fanfare. Some people are seeing these two for the first time. I mean on an equal basis. They're not on the the game of the week every night. I'll let you have the NBA package. So I watched some fresh teams in like, no walkie. Denver Portland would be nice then to same old same old. But I I would lean towards Denver right now. I would too. I don't forget a joke. It's just been playing big money game since he was sixteen folks sixteen so this this is this is just another big game to him. Not the other guys McCollum Lillard can't handle it because they have this. You're right is the best of them. All I linked Denver. I would too. I mean Lillard is going to have to do something absolutely miraculous as capable he's fun to watch. I'm with Mike. I love Damian Lillard. I think he's. One of the more underrated guys because let's face it. You're playing in Portland, you're east coast, mid mid west central part of the country. You're just not going to see him a lot. You know? Maybe now you walk down the street, and you look into somebody's walking out of the woods. I mean, there's it's scary. Portland is out of the mainstream of the NBA told him Bill wall. I mean, when you think Portland, you think Dr Jack Bill wanting to MAURICE Lucas serious, if I'm Terry Stotts, I'm running that Lillard Kanter pick and roll all night until the nuggets show me they can stop it because it was very effective for them in game six, and then, you know, Mike talked about how great Yanni's is. I picked I picked the Greek freak at the beginning of the year to win the MVP award. It looks like that's going to happen. He he's truly turning into one of the best two or three superstars in this league. And and he's twenty four Mike. I mean who knows where this is going Milwaukee right now is a juggernaut the best bet in the NBA in since the plan. Started the bucks. The bucks are eight in one straight off and against the spread in the postseason. How about that? And now, they get some rest. They don't play again to Wednesday night. Milwaukee has been virtually unbeatable and Brad Stevens can't coach if he's got a high-profile player. He needs to. Have guys that are skyrocketing basically took over the team and Brad Stevens for the first time darts people have questions about him. Now. I know he wanted Butler, but how long does he been with the Celtics now, and you saw they were the favorites this year, and you know, what the media leaves them along because he's a nice guy. Well, you know, what made me I'm not a nice guy. But I judge the coaching here. And he even said it he had a bad year. Maybe was do. I think they all learned from this. And I don't think Kyrie irvings coming back. I don't think is either. And it's funny. You say that about Stevens because I asked your co and Silvy that same question earlier this week. I said could it be that he's better with? Yes. Without like, a truly great player. You know, like say they kind of. Agreed. You know, we all sorta rolled around and go like maybe like, he just coaches better when they're more of the underdog. You know? And I still think he's a great coach. I mean, I really do. But maybe they'll be better without kyri. It's weird in the NBA you need that star player, but maybe Stevens is that coach that just does a better job without it. I don't know if you can alternately win without that star player. You know, you're always going to favour the player over the coach. But you might be right there that like he needs to be the underdog if he's truly get a success. You know, what they never got back on track? He says we never could get back on your the bus driver that took us over the ravine. I mean, you're the guy that drove I mean at the end of the day, but Kyrie Irving championship pedigree. He was you know, you'd think he he thought he could take over the team, and he did but in a bad way. And then when he started becoming Solan that was all she wrote a most of the players, I agree with what Jalen rose this week. They would help them pack. Probably no doubt about it. And maybe he'll go somewhere else and be happy. But I think Boston's one of those places were man, you better if you're a leader, you better come through like bird, and Russell and Havlicek and all those guys and that just didn't happen Tom Brady every team there. You know mean you're right about that. They hold them in high. They they hold them to a high standard, and they expect him to succeed. I will get to the other Boston team still going to the playoffs. I'll talk to Mike about the Bruins. And I think they're the team to beat in the NHL here in the four that are left. We'll talk about that. PGA championship for next weekend. Coming up also the weekend. Slate of MLB is the cubs have a big series for first place division on the north side this weekend. Mike's on Twitter at north northbound I told him into call. We are the odds. Couple every Friday night from six to seven thousand poverty. Sports talk leader visits with captain company on Tuesdays won't be on the regular season. Takes a couple of big.

"NBA reporter just all around decent, dude. Royce young joins us Royce. How you doing? I'm doing good guys, Harry L. We're good. So let's let's get right to it. I heard vermoti Jones actually talked about this on high noon, he mentioned that how big a star is Damian Lillard really if he's not going to be blamed for what's happening in this nuggets series. Now, I wanna get your comments on that. And also is they're coming back to earth kind of vibe happening with Damian. What are the nuggets doing right now to neutralize him? I got an interesting point first of all on the bony point Erica truth, though. I mean, you know, just because Damian Lillard really likeable, and we all and we. We all really enjoy the way he plays and his demeanor and the way he handles his media obliga- shins don't mean that he is immune from the same criticism that basically every other star in the NBA get so you know, I in this situation he has not played up to I think the standard that he set for himself in the in the opening round series. And a lot of people felt like that that was kind of his actual breakout into that that upper tier the the tier that you know, with James harden and Steph curry and Kevin Durant all the Super League players. It felt like curry was finally Lillard was finally scratching the surface of joining some of those guys. And and he's and he's he just hasn't really held up to that in this series. I think the nuggets do have a lot to do with that. They put a ton of attention on them. It's not as this Lillard as bad. And again, I think that's sort of the standard that he set for himself as we have high expectations for him. But they are basically saying that we're. Not going to let Damian Lillard beat us by scoring forty and hitting threes game. It's going to have to be those other guys, and we've all kind of sat there and waited for these signature moments from Lillard where he has these eruptions where he takes over the game or hits a dagger twenty eight footer, and they just haven't come and and the nuggets that basically said look we're gonna we know that McCollum Lillard are hard to stop. Let's see what MO heartless Alfred Camino Innis Kanner that Collins all those other guys can do those guys aren't holding up there into the bargain. That's because it's the nuggets are good. So I'm not like that shocked by how that's gone, but to that point. I do want to ask you you at what point because of how far it went with the Spurs. And because of how it looked as if that could have ended their season any point at what point are we supposed to believe on the other side of this, even if Lillard isn't coming through that the nuggets in for real, and that they can actually give something which should they advance to the next thing that they face in the Western Conference inter fair point in. Honestly, we should have realized that the nuggets were for real sometime like. Epi wary when they were lurked with the top seed in the western..

"On this eighth day of may FM sports in the Toronto Raptors are victory away from their second trip to the NBA's Eastern Conference finals in team history. There I twenty sixteen and the Denver Nuggets are closing in on their first appearance in the Western Conference finals in decades say what let's bring in ton and Gaylon creek creek corner. Join me Monday Wednesday Friday here on af en guys if I told you before the season started that the Denver Nuggets were closing in Western Conference finals that they'd be here. What would you believe me? Anyway, not kidding. Nicole? Talk about probably too much. But he was a monster. Again last night at twenty five points, nineteen rebound in Denver. You know, they were the number two seed in the west and they're finally playing like these a few weeks, but the nuggets also have a plethora of quick fast guards complete great defense. And these guys are wearing out the blazers veteran backward. CJ McCollum Lillard really haven't been the same since their four overtime victory on Friday night. And I'd be very surprised if the players can rally back in this series. Of course, they're down three two and then back to Toronto crush the Sixers thirty six points. This is not normal. Was awful. Again. That's two games straight. Healy thirteen points eight turnovers last night and he's blaming an illness again for that. Who knows what Ben Simmons contains the play very poorly as regrets this season versus rookie of the year performance. He's not getting any better in the Sixers are playing. Isolation. Offense, all these great players who suddenly they don't trust each other anymore on the court. They try to take it in their own hands and their head coach Brett Brown. He's definitely going to be on the hot seat unless they can turn this around and win game six Jimmy Butler said it best last night. He said his Sixers later Neg of disappointing. The Sixers to win the NBA title. I'm not looking through smart right now. Well, Toronto shot sixteen of forty from the three point field. They led by as many as forty in their second street victory. But what I saw Gaylon, and this continues our discussion we're having on Twitter about the three ball. And these defense is stretched thin the Sixers for the most part were really guarding the three and nobody was coming over with the help on the perimeter defense. And that led to some pretty easy drives for for for Toronto. I mean, they were making layups to an threes. Like, you said are they're over emphasizing defense on those long three point shots in the lane was wide open. The the raptors are getting easy uncontested layups all game on. I totally agree with you. All right, gentlemen. Paul Pierce, one of the greatest Celtics of all time. That is saying a lot after declaring it was over the Celtics Trump three they were blowouts. What is going on? Want to blame? The poor guy. He he's getting a lot of heat right now. Seven of twenty two. Monday nights was another bed game, and they loaded the pain they crowded the lane. There is nowhere for him to drive. Shooting. Thirty one percent in these last three games, which have all been bad losses for the Celtics. And then after Monday night's was he said, he shot the ball thirty times. I'm that great of a shooter. This is not the popular kind of talk here. Mad plus minus in this series is minus forty eight that's really bad and Jalen rose on ESPN reported at the Celtic players want to pack is bags as soon as possible. The Knicks really want him. Remember how he left the Cavaliers? He left them on really bad terms. Alienated himself the entire. Yeah. And you know, I'm still I know he's been healthy. But I'm always weary about a guy who gets injured that often early in his career. The great, Danny Manning. It comes to mind. And of course, of course, the great hill hill the mine too. Saint Louis blues. They've advanced the NHL Western Conference final. They won a marathon seventh game in their second round series. With the Dallas Stars. Pretty amazing. What they've done this year met in January. The worst point told in the NHL. So they did what most losing teams. Do. They changed coaches. Craig Baruba got the head job. He changed some lines. But most importantly changes goalie he decided to go with a rookie Jordan bidding dinning tin, and he's been terrific. So's the blues defense tactic. Maroon got the winning goal last night in the second overtime against Dallas. In the worst record to the conference finals. And maybe it was. They were both both goaltenders. We're we're pretty good Bennington east up twenty nine shots. Bishop was pretty brilliant to turn back fifty to fifty four. So Saint Louis goes on to face the winner of tonight's game seven between the sharks and the visiting Colorado Avalanche. What do you have there? Well, the shark tank is the home, of course, for San Jose. And now they're awfully good there. But you know, we've had three of playoff series this year, it has gone to overtime shootouts and could have another one tonight because these teams play a real tight the avalanche in the sharks. In San Jose to win tonight. Do you guys? See Mike fires yesterday through through. No hitter. Actually now. He's on the list of major league hurlers who have thrown multiple no hitters thrown to his manager. Bob. Melvin his pitch count was way up to the seventh inning said to fires. I know what's going on. Anybody else gets on base? You're coming out. Hitters hit the dodgers back in fifteen open was a to nothing win over Cincinnati. Not many people were there the Coliseum in Oakland game was started almost two hours because of a problem with the lights, but it was a historic moment. Major league. No hitter. What'd you guys make of Shohei Ohtani? He went over four with an RBI ground out and a walk in his uh season debut at the angels. They still the Tigers too. Important. Yeah. Yeah. Tommy, John surgery last fall. I mean that that used to just cripple a career. Now, you know, everybody comes back from it. When I don't need a young age. They think it will make him a better pitcher. I don't know. Procedures. Now the medical attention east guys, get tremendous athletes progressed. Yeah, they're able to repair those rubber bands guys.

"Bank in Texas sandwich for you like an app, I'll use the app, go go. We'll canes across the hall. Yeah. He'll come in here and his boots and twang and tell you how much better it is out. They're not gonna I'm not gonna go toe to toe on the merits of Texas with will Cain lose nowadays. Even a Smith's you're bringing silly string to a fight with that. Tex is not an overrated place. No. They've got an owner that care. You know, I'm saying it's overrated as a destination for professional athletes. It's a great place to live. I delegate retired athletes. The weather all that's all retired Evans live in Florida and Texas, California and not California do yes. In the NBA at that level of money. They do listen the point is in by the way, if you play in Texas, you play in the Western Conference or you're gonna play games in California, you pay the entertainment tact, regardless whether you live there. Not fun fact just putting that out there. What were we talking about? Oh players being in control. Why shouldn't they be? Why shouldn't they have a say in where they go? It can absolutely have a saying where they wanna go. But are you're saying once they signed the contract they should stick around for the deal. I'm saying like the whole like, hey, I signed I'm a year in we have no were not one of the four or five teams. Matt berry berry things we can win the title. So I I want out. Now what I'm saying is I do have a problem with that. What I'm saying? Is that new the New Orleans pelicans? Yes, hit the lottery figuratively and literally by getting Anthony Davis a player that you should build a franchise around. Now, it is New Orleans fault for not doing more to build around Anthony Davis. But my point is at Davis is now is within his own control to say, no what I got drafted by this team. This is where I came up. But I'd rather go play with LeBron James I'm done with the super team thing I'm done with it yet. But if fun anymore, if the money's there, and you what like listen if you wanted to this on the merits of clutch as a sports agency getting involved in Rich, Paul so to architect this thing, and it sort of. Of all being done behind the scenes, and sort of a foregone conclusion before the games are even played. I'll I'll have that conversation. But the whole fact of like, I don't know the whole fact that these guys shouldn't be able to play with guys they like in cities, they wanna live. I mean, if they can swing if they can pull the strings and get that done without bailing on a contract like a year in I have a hard time arguing who's looking out for Portland, who's got Portland's best interest. Who's got Sacramento's best interest? The Portland has has good pieces. Just be be better on on the court win games. They and they have they have they just they fell victim to the pelicans last year. But like nurtures having a good season. You know, what Dame Lillard is you know, what McCollum Lillard long sometimes it creates. Sometimes you have to have the right superstar like you have to have somebody who's gonna fit in with Portland, which is kind of a weird place and Nurkic is kind of a weird, dude. And so as Lillard, and it works, and sometimes then you get these special areas, and it happening Golden State, and it happened in Oakland where you get athletes that represent the. City in which they live maybe from there. But they rep that city so well, and they fit in so well, and that can lead to some of the stuff that we talk about like a decade later like a special run for a special team in that city. Instead of just these hired mercenaries who are drafted in Cleveland, go play in Miami. And then go chase rings elsewhere. But that's what they do. They ring Tae Spurs dithering chase the San Antonio Spurs. Did not ring taste those dynasties guys. They draft the Dunkin they drafted Ginobili they drafted Tony Parker Kawai Leonard they developed it did that happen anymore. Because LeBron you see your soul. You're so young to be this get off my lawn guy. I'm not that young anymore. You're not I've got four in front of my name. But you look it though sleep.

"Hello and welcome to the hoop collective podcast. I don't know if this isn't a -mergency podcast. What's what's he between normal podcasts urgency podcast? Hurry podcast. I I don't know and orange level podcast is that work. Orange orange podcast. I think yell Huck. Good yellow. This is yellow podcast. That's Bobby parks. You hear your hearing? Up front office 'insider, we're gonna spend a few minutes talking about this Tobias Harris deal, but it's it's finalized. Now it trade. Call went through and everything Bobby four draft picks. Two firsts and two seconds four picks for a guy who's contract is up to three months. This mean this deal came out of nowhere. What's your viewpoint on this one? I think I think the clippers got more back than with Timberlake did for Jimmy Butler for Tobias Harris on an expiring for three or four months. It brought back terrible memories. From when we traded a first round pick for journal walls, and then had overpay them because we had no choice. You lose the leverage game there. Oh, you don't. As point guard for the go ahead. Yeah. And it's and it's not CJ McCollum Lillard goes to the bench. So, but yeah, I mean, it's it. Hey, fulfil healthy at the it's a push your chips in the middle. Basically, you've moved most of your assets that Miami pick is that crown jewel because that team to being a lottery now you have bought ler into biased you're going to have to probably pay both guys max money this summer. If that's what you're you're intent is to keep them. And and now you have to be happy with this is your core for money. Bobby max money for five years. Don't you think? Yeah. Yes. Mac money because there will be a team out there that will pay Tobias Harris max money. And so this is this is an expensive group, but they are kind of I guess they aren't a win now mode in for the clippers. I think it it makes sense. It's like, you know, you're basically like what you're realistic expectations here at this group. They're eight see that's fighting and try to get into the playoff. You get to first round picks that you can keep. Her us down the road. You don't have to worry about the Tobias Harris cap hold or if you wanna bring him back, and it gives you a lot of flexibility for this summer. So I would argue that almost might do three I Trump fix because this is a tank style trade. And now, I wonder you know, you could argue about whether to biases their best player every night because there's certain nights when gallant going has big games. Lou Williams wins them games. But he's certainly if he's not one he's won a and there's possibility they could make another trade before the deadline. I think it's this increases their chances of being in in missing the playoffs. And if they missed the playoffs they keep their draft pick. So it's almost like it is picks up a third pick for them and Bobby. What do you think the possibility is hear of them entering the Anthony Davis sweepstakes? Now, they have to extra first round fix. They just acquired they potentially have their own pick. If falls in the lottery, and it would be a lottery pick. Plus, they have some decent young assets. Shakeel L exander. He told me if I'm wrong, I think now with his trade they can now beat any Los Angeles Lakers offer for Anthony Davis. And by the way, the quote unquote lists that Anthony Davis just gay. Gave to the pelicans included the clippers in my off base here. No, you're not. I mean when let's came out earlier in the week. It was we all thought like it was besides the Lakers. How realistic was because it was before this trade. It was Milwaukee. We knew that, you know, besides Jaanus. There was little value there because those guys on expiring in New York, we had to wait until the lottery to figure out so yeah, I mean now is the clippers something they didn't have before the week started to one potential lottery pick and a an another first round pick to us trade. You've got salary cap space as a buffer in case, you need to take back money, you know, in in the summer or even now, and you've got all these expiring contracts right now. So yeah, I think it's Brian..

"College football games. LSU an Iowa State all three just cover the line. They all want outright. I was gonna say as a mega props to you for the Oregon Paik. I actually went with Oregon. I hit a three team round, Robin because Oregon was might take any. It was absolutely. If I wanted to Oregon the Astros in game one of that series in the dodgers in game two of that series and hit a three t Brad, Robin. And it's all because organized. I I went as far as taking them on the money on the points. And it paid off was we've got a little dicey there. And then went into overtime as Washington misses that last second field goal at Washington made the guy had three and a half. So I was sitting okay there, but you know, Oregon Herbert he's the real deal. You this kid will definitely be playing on Sundays. I don't think he comes back for his last year. I think Herbert comes a big this year. And then goes to. The NFL by the way last week. I did omit something that I wanted to get out there. And I think maybe a lot of you may have missed this as well that fish. I know you didn't because you're a Laker fan. But former coach Tex winter died at age ninety six last week. And I of course, called games for Long Beach state. I did a tip off show prior to the season in two thousand or was two thousand one one of those two would Tex winter because was also a head coach for Long Beach state basketball back in the day a lot of people don't realize that but tax the innovator of the triangle offense. And of course, that would help make Phil Jackson's teams so dynamic because they knew it, and they ran into perfection for six of those championships. Absolutely. And I it was a horrible loss for the sports world takes winter is one of those guys that unless you were a fan of the bulls, and or the Lakers, you probably had no idea what tax winner was. But I will say that every time that there was a Laker game on or a bull's game. Prior to that on. They would always acknowledged that takes winner was the guy. He was always. At Phil Jackson side. I always wanted his assistant coaches and horrible loss because he was a true innovator. He was you know, without him. I don't know if Michael Jordan has six rings Ariza thing in Tex winter will tell you look, you know, I lived equality like ninety six ninety six and you're around as many great moments as Tex winter you've lived a full life. So February twenty-second nineteen twenty two to October tenth two thousand eighteen Tex winter great legacy outstanding man outstanding coach basketball mind, and of course, the innovator of the triangle offense, but he will be missed and I wanted to get that out there because I meant to talk about that last week, and as I finished up his show. Gosh, dang it. Thompson come on you had the sheet right there you had it written down. And I'm like that. And if you see my office, I am one of the I'm not I don't know if I'm ADD, but I'm like one of these people have stuff all over and somehow on a good day. Conductor where I actually do look at every part of the band and get everything in. But there are days where I omit the string section, and I forget text winter dyke. Gosh, dang it. So realized it as soon as I hung up. Now, staying on that note, Paul Allen, of course, wanted founders of Microsoft, and and a great owner of sports teams, and I heard the guys sharpen Shapiro along. With Chris win the guys talking about Paul Allen. And Paul Allen was into the teams and he loved the Seahawks and he loved the blazers and look he didn't leave the blazers in shambles. He's got one of the best backwards. But when you're in there lumped in with Golden State, good luck. I mean, you're gonna do what you can. But you know, when you have you know, guys that are. All stars and perennial all stars. I mean, a couple of them, you know, with you know, the guards they have in in Lillard McCollum McCollum our to the best and define McCollum Lillard. We knew it was going to be good. Now, though a lot of people wonder like why the hell do you go to Weber state? Well, you know, why because his SAT's and all that stuff wasn't done in time. So he really got hit by a lot of schools overlooked him. And just sit out his kids not going to qualify. But the reputation was when this kid makes it in the NBA, he's not a Big Sky player. This guy could have gone pretty much anywhere. Had he had the grades and got everything done in time. And the thing is.

"We haven't got eliminated by a few times in the first round. So I'm just, I mean, you know you, you know, you guys aren't going to championship rub. We have the the team. Capability. Anything is possible. We can win championship. This this, this snippet of this sound was being was running all over NBA Twitter last night, and I listened to it and I couldn't believe it. And I texted are producing crew and, oh my God. And as I was going to bed, I had a panic. I was like, oh my God, that's probably fake, right. It can't be. It's so insane. It can't be real. So I went and checked my podcast app and check CJ's podcasts and it was real. I seriously couldn't believe this conversation actually have. We've got to listen to it. It is amazing when he goes too much. First off Kevin says, actually says, why you met. McCollum says, bro. I'm in the NBA. I've in the Western Conference tonight. Why I'm mad. It's reminding you about Kevin, just straight trash talks like, well, you're not win the championship anyway. I love him lax at him. Like a clown question bro. I believe this is why we love the NBA because they talk trash. They tweet trash. It's all good. But I will say this like there were a lot of fans who reacted pretty significantly when boogie there was a lot of players who felt this way CK's overall point was, hey, at some point we are all responsible for keeping the competitive balance of this league and you guys, I believe I don't wanna put words and she gives now, but the impression I got from his tweets were, hey, guys should have more of a competitive spirit than just all teaming up on one teen will. But obviously there's a very nuance to answer to that question. Why book why bogey ended up on the warriors and why Kevin Durant ended up on the warriors and how this happened? It's not that simple to never that simple, but it's funny to hear his it is, but I also think you gotta remember boogie has the most serious injury in sports and let's go through the game if we need to about achilles injuries. No one ever comes back the same. Just look at Elton brand and how much explosive list he lost. And he was a guy that was a workout maniac, which I don't think we can really say about. Gigi. So he's going to join this team late in the year. I think he's already admitted that or said that. So his value to the war is so different than his value to other teams. And I think I don't. I think it's important not to lose five. So I wanna say, real talk on top of real talk here. The blazers have been trying to get another star for the last year. You know, they tried to talk her mellow Anthony into it last year. They kicked the tires on boogie apparently this season, but it didn't just didn't happen. They want to resign use of the kick the tires on Kevin, love Cavs, interest in trading him because they were gonna extend Kevin today. They have a trade exception to thirteen million bucks that I spec to expire without musing it. The blazers McCollum Lillard want to improve. They haven't been able to do it. So just keep an eye on that situation as well. Sad CJ for having the pike cast by the way, shout out and always being straight and always being straight on social media sat out to k. d. for coming onto podcast and talking, I love the whole thing.
