"Six minutes and then didn't play again by yourself that Carl might be close to moving on from him. I'M GONNA sell because I'd I'd Carlisle gets these things in his head and he will ride it until somebody smacks him in the face in snapchat so he can snap out of it. I think we're seeing Justin Jackson for the rest of this year. Yeah I I I sell it. I think can't really suck. Yeah I I mean. I don't know like he might play fifteen minutes. He might play twenty he might start some random game like Jackson. You know you just know that. He is going to be out there every single game. And so yeah. I sell that okay. Last one over the last seven Games kristaps Porzingis is averaging twenty eight points ten rebounds and two blocks while shooting it almost fifty two percent from the floor and forty one percent from three buyers. Sell that Chris Stops is back. Oh are by it. I mean even if you look I know the last seven. Those numbers are good but if you look at the last fifteen games sound that the microphone. It was a lot more intense in the microphone. It's supposed to be but now I think he's back. As long as he can stay healthy. This is the guy that they thought they were getting. Yeah it's okay my only thing would be that Some of those games were without Luca. Like yeah but even with Lucia. I mean tonight. She's still at twenty four in the Alaska. Twenty seven okay. Yeah so I mean. I don't know if it'll be twenty. The thing is he always got his shots. Even when Luca was playing he was still getting shots. There's going in and now they're going in so he's going to continue to get his shots and I think he'll shoot a high percentage the rest of the year and and I don't know like seven games out of eighty two again. It's a small sample size but I don't know a seven games to me. Seems like enough to say like I feel like it's not even the total points per game? It's just when you watch him play. You See. He looks more comfortable out there. Yeah he's now taking advantage of mismatches. When he has a small on him he literally turning around and rising up over him his mid Ringo's in yes. His mid range game is coming around. He had a couple of post plays tonight now. They were fadeaway post plays but they went in and man's fans should be really happy about that because we spent twenty seasons watching the post up where it was just a fadeaway so it looked really good. He looks really good his shots going in. I definitely think he's back. Yeah he saw his last few games. Twenty seven this was so twenty four tonight and then twenty seven twenty eight eleven thirty to thirty eight thirty five and then before that nine fourteen. Fifteen twenty ten. Now he was out for like what was it. Ten Games or something with the knee thing. So the ten twenty fifteen fourteen nine. Those were the first games bag but then since then again thirty five thirty eight thirty to eleven so I mean I don't. I don't expect the thirties all of that. I don't know if I expect twenty eight but yet the rich wanted twenty s and on a high efficiency and his rebounding this season and blocked shots. He had five blocks tonight. And you know what I've noticed. Also he's actually a pretty clever passer He's doing a really good job when he gets the ball immediately. Passing it to the corner because he can sense or feel that that guy has leaked over and you saw in the last game and this one when Luca. Kinda dragged the defenders out to him on the double he threw it into porzingas but porzingas could feel the wing defender was on him or the defender and he immediately pass it over to Dorian for a wide open three on that note. He had five assists. Tonight HE F- five assists in the previous game. That was a career high so so he did it. He tied a career high but he did it again tonight. Just to aside. No can you believe the New York? Knicks traded porzingus and Tim Hardaway for Dennis Smith Junior. And two first round picks. I mean like it depends on how you feel about Dennis Smith junior but know how I feel about tennis junior as a player. So yeah it's I mean in regardless of how you feel about us nine point what he's doing right now so yeah that that was a steel. And I don't know if Donnie like just was like smooth talker or the Knicks are just stupid and and the pigs that they're going to get are GonNa suck because the mavericks are good so there's GonNa be like two picks in the twenties so the Knicks gave away porzingus for nothing. I mean honestly though they made the mistake that the mavericks make a lot a were like it was more about cap space for them like I think they were intrigued by Smith but I think the cap space because they thought they were going to get Kyri in durant. But this isn't about the Mavericks Failures. I'll say that the Mavericks won the trade. If they only got Hardaway Oh snap I mean? That's that's cold. That's cold Marty? But Smith I mean he. He struggles to contribute Smith sucks the NBA level. Okay he shouldn't be in the NBA. He might not be well. He can noted China and average thirty points. He actually actually would. Yeah like who is it. Oj Nearly Jim. Refer dead when over there drawing leg or something. Yeah so anyways. How do we start talking about that? Chris Chris tops has been so great for them. Yeah he's averaging nine rebounds a game this year for your heart. Yeah his career in New York. He averaged seven like. Is this deliberate or is this. Just the mavs system. I don't know I mean they score efficiently. It's not like there's there can't be that many more rebounds available but actually I WANNA see all. These are defensive rebounds or not even offense. It's not really a good offensive rebounder. Y- defensive rebounding yeah. His total rebound percentage has gone up so in New York. It was twelve and a half here. It's almost sixteen. Yup Well One thing. That helps is teams. Don't have a lot of biggs. They don't play a lot and so typically. He's the tallest guy I mean. He's always the tallest guy. But there's probably one other big that he's going to have to fight. There's not to like there used to be. Yeah that's true but he is. I'm not to take anything away from what he's doing. He's definitely been a much better rebounders than I was anticipating whenever we got him. I WanNa ask you a question so I think about this and then I never actually get the answer for myself. Do you think there's any team in the western conference playoffs that have no no let me reword that how many teams in the Western Conference playoff race have an elite big man like a real actual traditional or close to traditional big men traditional thing that I can think of would be Anthony Davis but he even does a lot of turnaround fadeaways. It's not like he's doing hook shots and we'll shimmied down. That's what I mean. But it's a guy like you know the seven footer. That Samson Davis is the first guy think of the West the have go bare. Yeah but he's not a offensive player true so he's really he's an all you guy but you're you're not just going to give him the ball and let them go to work so yeah okay now. The nuggets with Yoke Yokich yet. He plays a lot is in the post game. Yokich the clippers They have herald but he's not done. Exaud rockets definitely not the thunder Stephen Adams again. You Defensive Guy we're talking about well I mean I kind of mean both sides so I guess my quiet does it. Not Matter that he's not they don't play offense well. We saw the last time. We played the thunder. Stephen Adams was essentially taken out of the game of Porzingis The Grizzlies Oh they have. What's his cheer John? Tunis Oh Yeah Yeah Yeah Yoenis Eunice. The trailblazers does whiteside. And and your natch. Norwich is bad. I mean is he coming back? Okay and then the Pelicans Have Zion. Williamson was appointed. Yes my porn name every player on every team. Let's go through the whole league. My point is is kristaps enough because before it was like they had Chris Stops and Powell. They had kind of that size they had the two bigs out there and now is just Chris tops and they play five out a lot like do you see. Apply like say they match-up against any team in the playoffs. Not Not just who? They are right now but just any team in the playoffs. Do you see a match up where it's like. Ooh I wish we had more size. The only one would be the Lakers. But we haven't played the Lakers with the five offense as the Lakers. Already beat the Lakers. Twice yes and well yes. Okay well yet the Lakers. Also they won't be able to play to white and Anthony Davis on the court when they play the maps they won't be able to play both of them at the same time because of the spacing that the mavericks will ride. Maybe they'll just put Davis on Finnish Smith like the jazz put go bear on any Smith. Yeah but you're still pulling him a little bit away from the basket and yeah that's true. They could do that. But then Dwight Howard who's guarding KRISTAP. Is he going to guard kristaps on the three point line? Yeah and then you can't switch input Howard on finished. Yeah so it's to me. They would have to play the man style of basketball not the other way around. Okay mainly retort to that. Would be that the Lakers are forty one in twelve. I don't think they really need to adjust to a whole lot of teams. They haven't played with the five out. Okay and we've already okay. Jim Ones on their home court once at home. And then the rifts who rip that away yeah so we have shown that we can beat them. Now I'm not saying we're better than them. Were not right now but I think that we would provide a lot of challenges for them because they have this traditional lineup and I just don't know if they can score enough with the marriage am. I saying they're going to beat the Lakers absolutely not. I gotTA series. The Lakers would win but I think the man would give them a lot of challenge. I think what you mean. Like the principle of what they do and I think that's why you saw the rockets. Do what they did. And the Mavericks didn't have to make that trade in order to make that happen because they had porzingis. Yeah and honestly. The clippers are kind of close to that too. I mean. They don't have a very tall lineup. Now they're very long in athletic and just a bunch of good defenders and it's not even well. That's better than what the Lakers have. It's not about size it's about can you guard out on the perimeter and when you have two bigs out there like Anthony Davis in Dwight Howard or veil McGee. They can't guard out on the perimeter. Like that when the Mavericks Play Porzingas at the five in my personal opinion now I think they would find a way to beat the mavericks anyways but who knows. Yeah okay that's all I have. I feel like we kinda just got to talking towards the end but Anything else you have to add about this game that you want to say to our listeners. Like thank you for listening well Thank you guys so much for listening. We really appreciate it.

"I mean it was either all uber. Wide Open your were foul and Maxi really took advantage of it. A shot was going down it a nice dunk. It I was like man. He can get up whenever he goes to the basket. He saw a wide open lane and he just exploded. But it was not a routine thing and Porzingas to had a pretty powerful dunk. It was like offensive rebounds off a couple of put-backs or something and it wasn't going in and I think before that like he hadn't been getting fouls that he fell. He should have gotten so he just slammed in really quick. It was it was a really quick thing but those two things I thought inside. They did they did a lot of good things Another good thing they held Orlando to thirty nine percent shooting. Now I mean again Orlando is in a great team but at least they kept them down there. But you know the Mavericks have struggled on defense even instead so par team so anytime you can hold a team to below forty percent from the field. It's a win. Yeah and I mean thirty nine percent is that that's real and it was really a stretch in that game where the magic were. Making everything. Forty was making everything so for to be under forty percent. That means the rest of the game. They really didn't have any shots. Going in forty-eight was ten for nineteen in the game five twelve years he finished with twenty eight points and yeah there was a stretch where he was just killing the Markelle Foltz to what did he finish. Fourteen thing but it was a stretch will. This is every time this is the whole analytics age of basketball. Because he hit basically every mid range jumper yeah and he had seven of them or however many actual mid range shots he had any with fourteen points. Yeah so you know well and like Maxi said. They interviewed him on Fox sports southwest. He said that the mid range. Yeah that those were the shots that they wanted him to take because they're not great shots and he was like you know he made them. They were tough shots. You know. That's not ideal but at least they were just they were just that and so yeah. I mean there was a stretch where forty and folds were doing really well but you know again maxi talks about how talked about how they made some adjustments and I think those adjustments completely worked. I think forty eight had like two or three points in the fourth quarter. And so they really. They made a good adjustment to to shut him down to slow down the team and then yet to finish with the magic shooting thirty nine percent that I thought was really good. It was interesting. That foltz didn't play much in the fourth quarter and plus minus. He was zero. But that's an aide. What sixteen point loss and he was at zero and DJ Augustine who closed the game was negative. Fourteen or Michael Carter. Williams was a negative eleven. So foltz was actually really good. That's true before the magic. I don't know why he only got twenty five minutes but I don't care you know. Yeah good for the mavs porzingas. I wanted to talk about him too as well for good. Yes well it. Just just overall his last. I think seven eight games so I don't okay. Yeah that'll that'll be part of the buyers so okay okay. So that's the good and really the good was was most of it. We're going to also talk about the bad and the ugly GIS because there's always something you can learn so Some bad things Justin Jackson played. I thought that was no sir. I don't know what else we can talk about. Yeah he was. He played six minutes and he was a minus two. So not a lot of good there. you know we don't have to do? L. On it Seth didn't play very well. You know but tomorrow. He's one of those guys that tomorrow he'll end up having eighteen nineteen twenty. I will say that Seth did have some really good plays that he made in the first quarter when they just flowing so well but overall he kind of had a bad game. Yeah another bad thing. I thought Luca forced a few shots. Double Teams Yeah. That's going on my ugly category. Oh you're okay then that's my last bad. So how about? We just combine these two and it was weirdly. He handles double teams generally pretty well and traps. He handles them well too but there was a few times in this game where he was doubled and he moved all across the court with a double following him driving. All the way through the lane the sideline and then forced up a shot and I was like Way Blake what was that sometimes? He'll have a game or two where he does that for. Some he'll come off screen. You'll get double team. And he'll forget that he can pass the ball. Yeah and I thought the third quarter was just terrible. The way he played third quarter. Well not well. It's yeah I mean I I get it you. You went by twenty something points in whenever you do that. You always kind of let your guard down. And that's possible to happen to the Mavericks but Donncha was a real big contributor to that because in the third quarter he was just terrible. Yeah thirty four still. Yeah and and he's still and you know this is not gonNA turn into a negative dodgers pod. I love Dandridge and I'll take him over anybody in the league right now but some things he's still can work on is finding PORZINGUS ONE PORZINGAS. Pops because porzingas roles. He can find him. Yeah porzingas open every single time. He pops and Luca never. Does that Little Hook back pass to him and I feel like if you did that. Every time it'd be a wide open three proposing. Yeah and especially tonight again these teams on. Yeah it was so weird they would double him off the pig and then yeah he would just keep going and I don't think I've ever seen that from Luca so I don't. I don't think that it'll happen. I've seen it from time to time. And he ended up in the end of the third. It's not like it's a Bono Weird thing I saw which you can see at least with the porzingas in him there's a whole nother level that they can go to which is scary because they're really playing well together right now and yet there's even more that they can get to because again porzingas is open basically every single time and you know if you made that pass a couple of times that would open up his offense because they wouldn't now they won't only stay on him right now. They're staying on him because he's not going to pass it to him anyways. So if he makes that pass and PORZINGAS hits a couple of threes. And they're going to stop doing that and it's going to open up the lane for him even more. Yeah I think sometimes Luca just He like he'll miss a few shots or something and he wants to make up for it so badly that he'll kind of just a little bit. He's twenty yeah. Yeah and we forget that. Yeah Okay so another thing with the ugly. You mentioned the third quarter. I thought the whole team got a little turnover. Happy IN THE THIRD QUARTER. There was some just crazy. Yeah just bad passes or miscues really And basically the third quarter was just not very good and it could have been like you said because they got the lead Or maybe guys just lost. Focus at the everyone at the same time. I don't know but the third quarter was not very good at all. I mean they a recovered from and they won the game. So it's selling it's a problem. It wasn't the whole game but that definitely wasn't good quarter okay So that's the good the bad and the ugly from this game. Cintas a message on twitter. Let us know what you guys thought of the good the bad. What you think about porzingas performance Luca Michael Kidd Gilchrist. The number of minutes that he played and also him versus Justin Jackson. Let us know what you think. I am at underscores. Sidney Meyers Martinez. At Martin L. Myers said argument. Why do we have to Carlisle? Why are we doing this okay? Let's move on to buy or sell so basically things that happened tonight. Should we buy into it like invest? You know think that we're GonNa see this again or expect to see it again or are you selling as in like I don't believe in this. I don't think it's going to happen again. Get buying so for. This season. Wanted to explain it because I'm to be honest with you I had to Google it. So what's because every single radio show? Tv shows? And I know. And I always it's never made segment and I I kind of understood it matches based on how they talk but I just wanted to be sure because you know I'd sell otherwise I didn't want to okay This is just for the rest of the season. Yes so by herself. Okay I we talked about Kidd Gilchrist minutes. He played only four minutes in this game. Are you by telling how many minutes he played? I'm going to buy that. I just don't really. I don't see him. I think he's just GonNa you think is a bench warmer basically. I think they got him for insurance win. They play a really good offensive wing player or two. I mean honestly you could even think of it as they got him specifically for the Clippers. So if we face the clippers in the playoffs which there's a really good chance that we're going to end facing them in the first round. That's to me why they got him I am. I'm going to sell this. I really hope that he's not just a bench warmer because I just wrote a two thousand cool about analyzing everything about Michael Kidd Gilchrist so he better actually play my only concern with him is he could not get off the bench in Charlotte. Yeah but only this year true. I mean that was what I'm just saying. Yeah I it's his eighth year a lot of the things we talked about with improving his shot or or this or that. It's like it's his eighth year time on. Okay Chris all right okay. Second Chris. Tops and Luca both scored at least twenty four points tonight. Kp score twenty four. Lucas scored thirty three. That's only the sixth time this season that both have scored twenty three or more points in the same game five of those six times in October and November. When the mouse were totally healthy so by your cell that this is the Combo will see for the rest of the year. I'm definitely buying getting. I'm pretty sure it's the back to back games. They've done this because Porzingas had twenty seven at thirty three. So yeah it's back to back games on definitely buying porzingis looks back. It looks like he's back to being a superstar or potential superstar before his injury. And you know the great thing about both of Luca and porzingas right now. They're shooting the ball really efficiently and so they're able to get their points on a will amount of shots So definitely buying. I think I'M GONNA buy it too because I think they're figuring out Each other they've learned each other and not even just like they're figuring it out. I think there's things that they have figured out and they're like there's less and less than they need to figure out about each other and so I I buy it imposing. His shot is going in. That certainly helps always important. Yes I like when that happens Okay Justin Jackson came in and scored three points and grabbed two rebounds and six minutes and then didn't play again buy or sell. This looks so painful for you to talk it Carlisle. Why are you doing this tecate? We're having segments about Justin Jackson. Why okay well but we. We shouldn't talk about him. He he came in the first quarter played six minutes and then didn't play again by yourself that Carl might be close to moving on from him..

"Twitter at underscores city Myers Martin is at Martin L. Myers. You can listen to new episodes and read exclusive articles at Dallas whose cast dot com. I just published an article today. That is a deep dive into Michael Kidd Gilchrist. Pretty much anything that you want to know about what to expect his strengths and weaknesses. Hit the shot like we have to talk about the shot. The shock of everything is is in this article so it's pretty long but there are there's Lee there's a table of contents link or links all of that at the beginning of the article. So there's something that you're interested in like the shot or his defense or whatever. Just click on that and you can read that section. I also included in audio version. So if you don't feel like reading the whole thing you just listen to it. It's a lot easier. I thought I would try it. If you like that feature. Just let me know I might do it for future articles but that's Dallas whose cast dot com Yes so let's get started the Mavericks Played The Orlando Magic Ninety. It was their first game. After the All Star game are all star break. They won one twenty two to one. Oh six it was a good win on the road. The magic aren't agreed team. They're twenty four and thirty two but wait on the raid. Yeah it was. After the break they showed a lot of focus. I didn't see any rust. Or you know any hangover from the party or anything it was. It was a really solid game And it was. I think it was a good win. We're GONNA talk about that. We're going to go over the good the bad and the ugly. We're GONNA do or sell some of the things that we saw in this game. Do we expect to see them going forward? But I I I do WanNa talk about Michael Kidd Gilchrist. Just because it was his first game. He didn't really play a lot of he played five minutes. I think let me see four minutes. He played four minutes. So there wasn't really. There's a whole lot to break down here. But it was. It was called to see him. I mean at least we got to see a glimpse of him. He wore number nine Which I don't know how I feel about that because yes that reminded me of Rajon Rondo but also I don't know what these times are correct because it says that Justin Jackson only played five minutes and fifty one seconds. And if that's the case that was the longest five minutes and fifty one seconds of the season. I mean we're GonNa talk about Justin Jackson in the good the ban the ugly thing but I think it's correct because no I it is. I'm surprised when I saw it. I felt like he was there for the entire game. But I don't think he got on the court in the second half who doesn't Jackson Michael. Yeah Yeah I mean. There really wasn't a lot to see from Kilgore is I think you saw basically what he does. Which is Defense? I mean he picked up Aaron Gordon Yeah I was GonNa say the ballot he picked up three fouls so it didn't go very well. On one of the replays we saw. He didn't even yeah. Yeah I don't really know what to expect from him other than his defensive abilities when you watch him play Modo surprise how long his arms are he does have a really high reach for a guy. That's six But I don't know where he fits on the team especially if he's a negative on the offensive side. I don't really know what their plan is for him. If they can't fix his shot I don't see him playing much this the rest of this year. Yes so about his wingspan. He has a seven foot. Wingspan for a six six guy. That's really long He actually has a longer wingspan than Dwight Powell. Who Six ten So that's that's pretty impressive and obviously helps him on defense. I think we'll see him more like when the mavs play a team. That's probably got a little bit more offensive wings. Obviously playing the clippers. He'll probably get some minutes in there to either guard. Paul George or Kawhi Leonard just because they have two guys that are really good on the wing but there may be games where he probably doesn't even see the four. Yeah and I think also gets more comfortable with the with the team and with the offense. I mean there's there's a possible which we'll talk about this. There's a possibility he doesn't ever play like assuming that he does. I think it would take him some time to get used to the offense. I talked about in the article. Like where exactly does he fit? Because you're rightly he's never really been an offensive player but honestly you know. Everyone talks about the shot. He's got this ugly form and all that first of all he's worked on it and so I have some. I have a video in the article that shows the form is a little bit better now But he actually like. There's other things that players can do on offense besides shoot and he's he's good at some of those like he's good playing off the ball. He cuts to the rim at the right time. He's very active He gets two right angles. He's always in the right place off the ball for easy looks. I mean it's not like he's dropping fifteen at night but for a couple of shots here and there he can do that. Yeah I I don't know how much time we can spend talking about. I mean I feel like we literally just broke down his entire offensive game thirty second. Clip that you just drop. So Yeah I do. You want to spend another twenty minutes talking about him. Well no we don't have to but it's just you know you were talking about his fit like does he. I would say that. I don't WanNa see Justin Jackson on the court again and now that we have another wing. I don't see the need. I don't. I was surprised when I saw him in there. And then it was in there for so long and I'm like why is he even out there? What was the point of signing? I would rather you just play. Michael Kidd Gilchrist. Even though he's no good on offense he's just a better player than Justin Jackson is and I. I don't know why Carlisle just will not let the Justin Jackson thing. Go Kidd Gilchrist if you give them minutes given confidence he is a better player than Justin Jackson. Which is not saying. No but if he's better play him now Justin Jackson. I mean the only thing I can figure is that like I said he has to learn the system and so until then you have to play somebody but I we were like you signed a play. Your and yet you're still gonNA play all your normal guys plus a new guy. Like who's minutes did he take? Will he take? I was just as confused. I thought in the first half now granted. Seth did not play that. Well in this game but you know. Seth is one of those guys that he is earned his minutes already so even if he's having a bad game he even in the fourth quarter he should still be out there because he's earned that right in my opinion and I felt like if Curry's having a bad game his minutes get removed And Justin Jackson will get minutes or Jalen Jackson got more minutes. Jalen Jalen Jackson. Brunson got more minutes. And I just you know. Just play curry more. And take that five minutes that you gave to Jesse Jackson and just give it back to currie or I mean curry played twenty-eight Gilchrist so like you know like you said there's not a lot to break down from this game so obviously we have to see more games and more of Gilchrist to see how they use him if Moore could gilchrist means less Justin Jackson a Mauve win but if we're gonNA play both of them at the same time yeah just shoot me now. He's Carlisle sometimes. It's just so frustrating. Yeah so in the article. I talk about two ways at the Mavericks. Might use him they they could use him as a dwight power replacement or they could use him as a pseudo draymond green and he actually has the ability to do both of those things. I know it sounds crazy because he's four inches shorter than Dwight Powell. But I break down his offensive skill. Set His athleticism like we talked about his wingspan but his vertical. And you'll even the size of his hands are actually very similar so he has the ability to do both but again we have to see more games before we really know how the him really. There's no need to have a rolling big if Porzingis is willing to play the fine. If you're going to do five out if PORZINGAS is willing to play the five then there's no need to have anybody rolling to the basket because now you can just spread the floor with bunch of three point shooters so I don't see that working out to where he kinda takes Dwight Powell role. In fact that would kinda close the offense a little bit and and for all those at maybe. It's too early to talk about this but as you can see. Dwight Powell was not the reason. Why their offense was so amazing. Because it's still it's still amazing. It's still number one in the league. Even since he out the games that he's been out so that whole argument I I know it's not the right time for that but I just felt like throwing that out there. I've been saying for years but yeah I don't see Michael Kidd Gilchrist fill in that role again. My comment for him is Dorrie and if they can turn them in the door and it's a huge win well and that's you know another thing is talking about like the jump shot. Can they get him to be a good shooter and it sounds like it's just so far out of his reach right now but I mean you know Dorian. He went from shooting twenty nine percent. I think on three pointers to now like thirty eight percent and that was in less than two seasons. Yeah but the differences. He started out with the Mavericks and the first thing they did with younger. Yes and And Kill Chris has been in the League. Now for he's a veteran is gonNA changes his form. So I don't see it like I said I think he's more gonNa play if the Mavericks going against a really good offensive team that has really good wing depth. Then Kidd Gilchrist will be out there to take ten fifteen minutes to guard. Paul George Kawhi Yeah Okay so that's really the bottom line is we just have to see more games to see what he can do how they utilize him if. Carlisle can unlock something in him. let's move on now so going back to this game specifically the good the bad and the ugly obviously in a win. There's a lot of good I thought we both talked about how the first quarter it was. Just beautiful like a perfect. It was the the way that every game should go Luca was on fire but he didn't have the ball the entire time you know he he deferred and other players got involved but he still had a huge impact on the game Porzingas was playing well like that quarter was just perfect. Like that's how I want every single game to go the entire time. Are we talking about the good right now? Have we got okay Yeah I think so I. The first quarter was what what I mean is. Did we get into it so yeah? The first quarter was great. I thought to me What you can see is Porzingis is is. He really is a star. At how. How much of a star? I don't know and you can see the difference on the court. When he is out there now that they have another guy who can attack you can get his own basket which he's been doing a great job of lately it really makes you true contenders because when you have that one guy if you shut him down our he's having a bad game. Your whole offense is shot and I think we saw in the third quarter which will get into the third quarter when Luca was Kinda struggling. Porzingis was able to carry them offensively and keep them engaged and he had a huge third quarter so to me. The good is kristaps Porzingis. Yeah it was just. The the first quarter was just really balanced. It was there was a lot of flow to the offense Luca and Porzingis leading the charge. I mean it's not like you know all these other guys had the ball the time like they were leading the charge But it was just there was there was a nice flow to the offense and I thought it went really well Another good thing from the game Maxi cleaver awesome. Yeah yeah he finished with. Twenty six point career high. Yeah and there was one point where they were saying. He had seventeen points and we were like. What did he get seventeen her but he hit. He was three for six on three pointers. He had a couple of alleyoop shots. He had a couple of dogs that were just will. Yeah they which is not very good on the defensive side of the four and obviously you can see porzingas and maxine had huge games because any time which was in the pick and roll. They struggled to stop. I mean it was either all uber. Wide Open your were foul and Maxi really took advantage of it. A shot was going down it a nice dunk. It I was.

"Spent so much time in my wife talked to Mike. Okay Chris. You never thought you were going to either. Yeah well anyways it's like I said it's I can talk myself off into it and so I think for that reason I am. You know I wanna see I wanna see what happens I want to see. Do they have him shooting. Do they work on his shot or do they. Just you say you know what you're not good at that you're just going to be a roll man and we'll see what we can do with that. Do they just give him a chance for these next few months and then we never see him again. I don't know but I'm kind of intrigued. That conversation that I had with Mike Prokopowicz really interesting. There's more to it. I'm thinking about working on an article of really digging into his. Michael Killed Her strengths and weaknesses and how could use them. If there's more to this conversation that I'm going to include in that article so keep an eye out for that but yeah I mean we'll see it's like I say when you look at the reclamation projects they have a history of like this could actually work. You know so I'm intrigued. One of us is well. You know what you're sick. Count none of your opinions matter right now. You don't even know what you're saying you're so doped up on whatever it is you've been eating honey and tea. Oh my God it's making me crazy uh-huh anyways I think that's it. We have the All Star Break All Star game. We have a long. You Know I. It's it's a long stretch nine games before our next one ninety days. Yeah and it really sucks because not enough for US law. I have other episodes planned for the All star break. No that's not what I'm talking about. I'm talking about the Mavericks as a team. They can't seem to get any rhythm like with Luca and Porzingas as soon as they come back or Lewke comes back they have a great game and yes and so you know I. I really think that ten game stretch right out of the All star break is going to make or break this season as far as where they whoa land in the standings. Okay like that'll determine where there's a rank you if you had to guess just for the sake of whatever if for healthy let's see where do you think they'll finish the standings if we're healthy and wanted to say fourth or fifth. Wow Yeah but I think we might be too far away from fourth the highest would be everywhere three and a half games out of fourth which is not aren't insurmountable there honestly the Mavericks. The one thing they haven't done that all these other teams have done is had like ten game winning streak trae. We haven't done that yet. If they put one ten game winning streak together then they will probably climb up to fourth. Yeah not that far out. The thing is like it doesn't sound like that much but not only do they have to win Utah. The other teams have to lose. That's you're asking for something that hasn't happens but because of their schedule being so much easier now at Rugen Utah had one of the easiest schedules in the League. Especially when they had that fourteen game winning streak like like this and then they lost like five in a row yeah and because there was against good teams. Yeah so and they almost lost to the Matt. Mavericks haven't had that stretch it. So did they almost sued the mavs. It might yeah. Yeah yeah so the almost lost six in a row but the the rockets are only game and a half ahead of the mavs. I don't really trust the rockets. At all honestly yeah so I don't know but we'll see I I'm GONNA say fit just to be optimistic. Okay I I I would say fifth or sixth. Yeah it'll be it'll be fun. I mean we'll see in the all-star break will be fine too but that's it for this episode. Thank you guys so much for listening. Thank you Martin for joining.

"Yes and I'm assuming or hoping that he'll take Jesse Jackson's minutes away. He played twenty minutes. Who was a negative four twenty point long in a twenty point win four? How is that possible? Brunson was a negative five but only played fourteen minutes and he really he started ended the game but didn't play again intel garbage. Yeah but yeah. Justin Jackson Negative for you win by twenty and as soon as he came into the game in the third year down all of a sudden the kings just started making shots. Just it's not all his fault you know. Sometimes Times pushed minus is just a matter of when you came into the game. Who Goes on WHO? You're on the court with twenty minutes in a twenty point win in you have A. That's that's how. Yeah so. The mouths are thirty. Three twenty two and back up to sixth. Yeah there. We're at the all-star break now so thirty three wins is their most wins at the break. Since two thousand fourteen two thousand fifteen season ended ended one more win than they had the previous season. The thirteen fourteen season and fourteen fifteen they had. I WANNA say thirty six wins and then in thirteen fourteen. They had had thirty two wins. Those were their last two like good seasons. And so this is the most wins since those two seasons and she doesn't fourteen thousand and fifteen. They finished in seventh place ace and they had that first round exit versus the rockets. That was the wrong. That was the Rondo trade where they were actually better before that so knows. What did they eh done? Yeah and then in thirteen fourteen. They finished in eighth place and they had the first turn. Exit versus the Spurs that amazing series so thirteen fourteen against the spur for. Oh Yeah. Yeah Yeah Yeah the seven game. Yeah so They're they're on pace to be. I don't WanNa say the eighth seed. Oh no but it'll be higher than I mean at six right now. I'm just saying like historically the last time they had this number of wins at the All star break separatist initiative for years. You know the one thing is a there. I think. Ten Games at the all-star break only one of them is against a team with a winning record. Yeah so they if they can win they can go nine one in that stretch or eight and two then hopefully they will jump up a couple a couple more swabs but they really got a feast on those first ten games coming star break and this stretch in February there it was also a lot of easy games and and then the injuries happened. So I mean I guess we should be glad that they did. Have this kind of kind of schedule with these injuries. 'cause they they had them with tough schedule too. Do though I mean I Luca Ankle injury was the toughest ten game stretch that they had and they went five. And Five I think in that string so yeah But yeah so they've they've had a lot of injuries since December With between Luca and Porzingas so hopefully were one hundred percent healthy for the last twenty five. I'm games or something To finish the season. And if you can go you know seventeen and seven or something And your last twenty four twenty five games and then obviously you're win fifty games in. Hopefully you'll move up a couple more swanson the city but the record the schedule they have is one of the easiest schedules in the League. Yeah I think there are like third or fourth or something in terms of having one of the easiest schedules okay I want to move on to the signing of Michael Kidd Gilchrist shocking shocking. Yeah we actually talked about this in our last pod. We finished recording right before the news broke but we had talked about it in the pot of if we thought they would sign him and we we thought like probably not because he just doesn't fit their offensive philosophy of shooting shooting three pointers and spreading out the defense. And you know five Al and all that but they ended up signing him and they cut what are their best futures which riches. I don't think I've ever been this sad about a bench warmer basically getting waived. I mean it happens opens every year every team. Does this whether it happens at training camp or just some random time during the year. But I don't think I've ever felt it the way that I felt it with Ryan broke off. Will you know he was. He's just a fan favourite and a fan favorite and for him to get cut. And there's so many the other players Justin Jackson that is not a fan favorite is the opposite of do you can you. Can you sit here and honestly sleet tell me right now. That Jesse Jackson is a better player than Ryan. Broke off now. Okay then what you know now. I think because Justin Jackson was drafted in the first round his his first his first contract is guaranteed. So I think if you waved him you'd have to pay the full amount of his contracts contracts on his rookie deal And broke off. I think his contract was a little different yeah. I don't know what it is about Justin Jackson accent that they just they just see the potential. Yeah and I guess broke off so yeah we signed my cookie Gilchrist. I was surprised I was even more surprised fries. When Carlisle said he can see a lot of him playing the five and said the four of the five? Now I can see the four because today's the four is a wing and really Dorian. Plays the full right now at this current lineup. Yeah if I see him at the five ever I'd be shocked. Yeah I mean I could see him him at the four it in the way when Carl said he'll play the for the five I was like okay playing the four or the five switching Ching alive which another thing Carla mentioned. Not a good shooter Kinda Rem I was like. Are they going to play him the same way. They played Powell now and I know we talked about that and we were like no because ak he's four inches shorter he seeks power six ten but that is I mean the four of the five. That's what the four five does I think they're there. Had to have been something that they saw either the scouting team or analytics at showed that Kidd Gilchrist has the potential to be one of the best defenders in the week. Think And they were like well. We'll work on his shooting 'cause they're gonNA have to because you know and then we saw Hoeger at the game. I don't know if he's been brought in into work with Kidd Gilchrist. I don't know But I just I don't know I I. He's just has to be such a great defender. They wanted to take him. I can't imagine why Charlotte wouldn't WanNa play him more and even especially if they were just going to buy him out anyways so why not. Just play him this season and trade or something. Yeah but if you're not if you're so bad you can't get time in Charlotte. I don't see how he's GonNa play it all here yet. That's one thing about you know since he has he didn't really play this year. I think he played nine games or something and and he's had injury problems the past couple of years that have kind of held them back but it it's hard to dig into the numbers to see like okay. This is what he produces is kind of how it fits. Because there's there's not a lot of recent data because he just hasn't hasn't played a lot this year now some things don't change. His defense is always there. He is a very good defender but I dunno no. It's kind of hard to see how exactly he's going to fit and part of me believes that tweeted. I think that they may in my personal opinion. I wanted to just see what it's like to play with Lucan porzingas because again I think the lineup. The mavs you're going to have to go with going forward is the three wings with Luca and Porzingis and I can see them doing a lineup. At some point with Luca Hardaway Dorian Kidd Gilchrist and porzingas just just to see and you know honestly that sounds kind of sick defensively with Dorian and Kidd Gilchrist porzingus out there And so maybe they just need to get the footage to see if this is the direction we need to go in or do we need to go big because right now you kind of don't really know what to do with Porzingis. I think he is a five. But you gotTa make sure you have people that can play defense on the wings and are versatile they can switch with biggs and smalls and maybe that's why they brought him in was really just. Ah Yeah to get it. And then if they say this is a direction to go in then when they go into free agency they can sign somebody that fits that need but also can score. Okay okay so I'm going to read some names off to you and I want and tell me way too early free agency list. No talking about Michael Kid goes. Tell me what these guys have in common. Okay.

"Myers. The website is Dallas whose cast dot com. The mavs got a win against the Utah Jazz. Well I might be sick. Utah Sacramento Kings. One thirty. Two one. Eleven is their final game before the all-star break so it was a good win and I think this kind of shows the secret. I think we saw the formula in this game for how to win Basically just Luca well we might have to restart. This saw the the a combination of Luke and porzingas can be so deadly because both of them can score so well in oddly enough. The man's defense is better with Luca and he's not a great individual his size of finished my later. Sorry well yes I want to do it again. This is not a good pod. Sorry you know. It's not. Yeah he's not a very good individual one on one defender now from time time to time. He can make a good defensive play but it's more his understanding of where to be on the defensive end of the floor unlike Tim Hardaway Junior. Who doesn't know where he supposed supposed to burn? Yes and Luca can do that. So it's one less bad defender on the starting lineup on. Luca's playing I I do also think his size plays a role yes late. For example curry and Brunson. They got blown by a couple times but for the most part I mean and they are right there. It's just that they're so. Small and curry is is not a small guy. Brunton is shorter but they're not as tall as Luca. Lucas just is taller. And he's a bigger body so I think even if he's in the vicinity of his I he can contest the shot or at least make the offensive player player. Feel him and so that probably makes a difference but overall I mean you you saw porzingas being aggressive. You saw him stepping into his shots with confidence defendants and if him in Luca can play that way lucas already playing confidently of pausing conjoint him. Then it's GonNa make them very difficult to to stop on the on the offensive side of the ball so it's really just. The mavs defense has can determine how far they go. Yeah I think you know. There's there's two ways is that the two men game can work. It can be kind of what we thought it would be like the pick and roll that would be deadly or it could be that they both sorta just this dominate on their own. I think in this game you saw a lot of that. They both just dominated on their own. I thought you saw a good amount of both Especially to start out the the game they they did a lot of pick and pop pick and roll with Porzingis and and there were still a few times where Luka missed porzingis pick and pop hop. Yeah but it was a lot less than we've seen in the past and really what Luca needs to understand. Is that if Porzingas is averaging twenty twenty five points again. That's not GonNa take away his points. I mean on all honesty. He's a twenty year old so he wants to have high numbers to typically and if he can see that Porzingas can have twenty seven he can still score thirty three then then. I think he'll be more inclined to to pass a to not say that he's selfish but sometimes he shoots it when he can pass it to a wide open porzingas. Yeah I think just recognizing that he doesn't have to do everything himself like he he's he's so good. I mean if you look at the way the whole team. Of course you know it's not like Sacramento's very good but it didn't really matter who's been coming into our home court lately. They've been really given the mavericks all they can handle. Yeah and so. Even if it was Sacramento who's lower on the on the standings the Mavericks had to come out and play and you can just see the whole atmosphere or the the whole energy of the team is just better with lookout there. Yeah I was listening to a an interview. That Mark Cuban did on the fan. Dan and he said that they talked to Luca about getting his teammates involved. More and You know not not doing everything himself But but using his teammates more and I thought that was interesting What you saw in I noticed this during the game? I didn't mention engineering while we were watching it because I just didn't think too much of it but now that you say that there is a lot of times where the man's got the rebound and it was the closest assist guard that got the ball from the rebounder and brought it down in the past Likud. Always go back and get the ball. Yeah but he allowed somebody else to bring the ball down several times and you know again if demands win and Lucas still a superstar thirty three. What twelve and eighties? So and he shot the ball will. Yeah I noticed that too. How when they would either just off? Rebound were inbounding the ball a lot of times. It was another guard initiative the offense and they've done that more recently recently. It wasn't just in this game in the past couple of months they've been doing that more But I noticed it in that. He seemed a little more willing to defer this game. Well we saw the start of the second half the starting lineup that I think we and we saw it before. The injuries This is the lineup. I think we're going to close the season with. And that's with Luca Seth Hardaway finished myth and Porzingis and with Hardaway Hardaway. And Seth and Luke out there plus porzingas. The shooting and playmaking is his. It's so good but it's can they stop somebody and God they they haven't been lately now. We've only gotten three games with the starting lineup. So you know who knows. Maybe they'll do better but it's such should offensive. Well I mean it you know who do you stop Curry's under an harper says it's about every single player playmaker Acre and Hardaway is on a roll shooting threes and Now of PORZINGAS is playing well. And if Lucas playing well this team is gonna be really good good. It's amazing. How much of a difference you can go from the last game and now this game and it's just because Lucas back and everything's okay? Everything's better now. Yeah the ideal feel player next to Luke I think is a combination of finished Smith. Hardaway and curry the defense the shooting and the playmaking That let me now. That's obviously like an amazing player. But you can kind of see how they're sort of doing that by committee with these three different stores now. Speaking eating of SPA starting lineups do you think that will change with the acquisition of Gilchrist. I don't think so but you know who knows what we'll see. I I think they do wanNA see a lineup. At some point with Kidd Gilchrist finished Smith And Hardaway with Luca because they probably probably WANNA test out that three wing three athletic defensive wings now. Hardaway is not that the other to finish Smith and could go Chris with thile Luca and Porzingas. Because I think that is the formula. They're going to have to go with four because PORZINGAS has to play the five and I know he was playing the four but really early on defense. He plays the five whenever we were starting to biggs and So I think that's we're going to see that from time to time but who knows it's not like Michael. Michael Kidd Gilchrist was so good that he was getting the water minutes in Charlotte. It could be a will always type situation where he comes over. Any barely gets off the bench. Yeah I I I feel like I kind of jumped ahead a little bit. I'm trying to think of other highlights from the game that were important. I thought it was cool. That we close on a bogue on three pointer Willie Cauley Stein also attended a three pointer. Yeah and he hasn't really played a whole lot. I feel like he had a bad game a couple of games ago and then he just this is hasn't been able to what he played great in Charlotte Him and said Nancy situation. I had a good could connection but you know Carlisle is so strange. Strange with his minutes and the LINEUPS scientists and sometimes in my opinion we can over think ourselves out of a good starting lineup up. But you know. I'm not the One coaching the team. So why would they listen to to me. I only have one hundred and thirty followers on twitter. But you're getting close to that check. Mark Mark Oh. Yeah I'M GONNA be fighting a couple years. I mean they better do. It is eventually. You're going to have some some fakers. Pretend fake Martin Myers. Yeah Yeah Okay. So here's a question. This is the first time the mavericks have have been like as healthy as they can can be in a long time. Obviously Dwight Powell is out for the season. So that's not an option right now. berating play Cordingley. Didn't play and then. Of course you know Ryan broke off our IP is not here but for the most part the players that are available For the season they played tonight and and it was a pretty solid game across the board. I mean we died by their defense struggles. But that's just the team I mean. They haven't been good defensive team and I don't think they will will be with this roster at least right now but they scored one hundred thirty points. They gotTa Win over the Kings who are twenty one and thirty three so not a great team but they they dominated I mean. They showed that they clearly the better team Is this the real mavericks. I mean they're healthy. They had all their players. Is this who really really. Are you know this is who we saw before the injuries as I was thinking. It's been a long time since we've seen a game like this where offensively they just looked unstoppable and they were one hundred and thirty points and they probably could add some more At the end of the game but yeah I think this is probably closer to who they are. You're obviously if you're I mean you Miss Porzingis for ten games and now combined Luca what eleven games between two times and then jury was out for little it. Yeah and then Porzingas the nose thing that yeah so I think this is more of what the team is. Now that doesn't mean it solves all their problems. They still have some things to get a work on they still. They weren't a good home team even before all the injuries. So they still gotTa make sure they figure that piece out and and then defensively they were better before the injuries they were at Fifteenth Korsakov slid a lot since then but they were still at least respectable respectable now they still struggled in transition which they still apparently do they can't seem to stop anybody in the transition op Alpha make or miss. Yeah it's it's unbelievable transitions. It's just so I think this is closer or this is more of an indication of the way they're going to be if they stay healthy. It's what we saw before for the injuries. Because record has has really been five hundred cents. All the injuries started now and then like going along with that is is we. We asked this question last episode. Is this how good Luca is like without him. They have games and stretches. Were they just look terrible. They look like one of the worst teams in the League and then now with him back there like a normal team. They beat the kings the way they should on their home court. They played well. Luca almost had a triple double like is that is he. I well remember they. They lost to the Kings at home earlier with Luca. So yeah I think what you saw tonight is kind of the blueprint of this maverick team. What's going to make them? Contenders in the future is a two man game between hookah and Porzingis but having shooters and defenders and playmakers around them that can make plays and make shots consistently consistently like Seth Curry. Tim Hardaway for the most part. This season's been really consistent. Enduring finished myth has been as well. He didn't really do anything tonight. Night because curry had it Roland Hardaway was playing well. But I think this is the blueprint that you have where Porzingis and Luca are the the main focal point of the offense offense and you know porzingis showed the ability to not just score for himself but he can make plays he had a brilliant pass over to the corner I think Tim Hardaway way here. So he has the ability to be a pretty good playmaker as well he had I think was it five or six assists. I don't think we did. Yeah never mind and I think that tied a career high him. Yeah so yeah I think like you said that the two man game. They're they're still kind of figuring out what is is the best version of that like we say The two main game with lucan poisoning is going to be unstoppable but then getting into okay. What exactly is that too man game? That's with an and tonight was version of what that could be and it might be the best version of it. We're also going to have to figure out what to do with the bench because now moving curry into the starting lineup. Like they did in the second half they they did before. All the injuries It really shortens their bench unit now Jay. Lynn had some of his best games during that stretch because him and Anton really because you had one less guy out there trying to take the ball and make plays with curry Jalen an and Dhillon were able to play a little bit. More free Max He's going to have to be better off the bench and they're gonNA have to figure out what to do you with with really the backup to finish Smith in Hardaway because right. Now it's Justin Jackson and that's not good because I would Justin Jackson and they got Kidd Gilchrist remember..

"Like I feel like I'm beating a dead horse. I WanNa talk about that. They would rather lose one game in one night then change their whole outlook on everything going forward so if you have an opportunity to win a game but that would require playing somebody forty minutes they they would rather just lose the game then play the Guy Forty minutes that is run for that season for that one game and to me. That's the problem and then in another problem I have with that is when it comes playoff time and you have to play guys forty minutes. They're going to be gassed because potty just aren't used to it and don't give me this crap. Well it's it's good for the players. Protect them from injuries. We have one of the worst injury ridden teams in the League right now. So clearly. Whatever you're doing doesn't matter? It's a load of crab grab so on. In my opinion. They were better off where they played a lot of minutes because their bodies became accustomed to playing that many minutes not like a ton of nominees but but thirty eighty six for crying out loud. You tell me a guy can't play thirty six minutes or thirty. I guess they did play thirty-five. We played thirty five tonight. But I'm just saying in in particular game. You can't sacrifice your whole plan to just try to win one game. You rather lose that game or try to win another way in his you. Can't you gotta play sometimes. Sometimes the only players that have it are the starters or sometimes. It's only the bench guys. You continue to equal. The percentages. Don't equal every game. Sometimes you gotTa make adjustments. So that's a that's our game recap thanks guys for listening. Feel free to share your thoughts. You guys always do like I said we're on twitter. At underscore city Myers at Martin L.

"michael kidd" Discussed on Dallas Hoops Fancast - A Podcast for Dallas Mavericks Fans

"And there's there's just there's no guy there's no draymond on their team we always compare it toward years players Just because they've won the championship the most recent champ but as far as as your defensive anchor your your defensive guy that holds people accountable on the defensive. End Doesn't leader the leader defensive and the mavs do not have that they don't have that guy that's GonNa get on you if you don't play good defense if you're not in position or if you're not getting a rebound you're not boxing out. Yeah and they don't they don't hold each other. They don't communicate no. I didn't know that was a problem until I think Kurkin Yeah Yeah. He went to the game in. DC when you're watching TV can't really tell yeah and you think about who people have said now that they just don't talk to each other on the defensive end ended the court. Yeah you had to communicate on. You gotTa have a defensive anger now. I don't know what Carlyle you know. The one thing we carlisle is he does not really raises. This is voice. He doesn't scream and yell fire doesn't really do they. Come to Jesus moment and unfortunately in my opinion and when you have a young team sometimes you gotta give them a little kick in the butt. Well they got that that one time from worked but then that was it well again when it's a young young team. You might have to do that. You got to do more times and Carlisle just standing there. Don't worry they're only up by twenty seven. Don't worry they're just GONNA keep. They're they're just making Kawada Charlotte very methodical coach like for him. It's about persistence. which I know but I feel like for a young team? Sometimes you got a little light a fire but again if their if their mentality is not winning this year it's learning then they're not gonNA do anything next year to better or not be like it is. I mean it's going to be like that until Lucas thirty. We're going to let him know they have their second round pick and they didn't want to trade it because his second round Abia Star. We know that they're going to do that. And and I don't know they might try to add some role players players in free agency who knows And then they're saving up for the big twenty twenty one free agency so there. There is a bigger chance that luke joins jaanus in Milwaukee walkie honest joining us. Yawn S can sign his supermax extension. This summer and I hope he does. We've talked about that before or one 'cause I want him to stay there anyways. Also I want this whole thing to be over and just move on from it but yeah I mean they just. They have a lot of players that are. Are I think good role players like Tim. Hardaway junior if he's your sixth man or a south courier or during finished Smith ranks like all these guys like argued role players but they have the entire team of them It works if you look at like you know. It's not the end of the world. They still have a lot of time. Left this season to to get on a run. But it's been like the way we saw. Well there you mentioned. That's been yeah and really their home games. The last of just spin abominations like Phoenix when forty eight to twenty two run or something like that in that third quarter a grisly grisly. The same ingredients looked great. It looks like the championship team. Yeah and then the jazz again the same old thing and it's like within like the first six minutes tamers. Yeah here we go again so that they gotta figure out what they're gonNA do an at home they gotta figure out how to play some defense defense. Their defense has just been plummeting. Yeah and and keep I don't know why and they don't really have a a leader. I think they have have guys that that do value defense. Obviously you know kristaps Porzingis talks about. He wants to win defensive player of the year at some point during Finney Smith has always been a good defender her like they do. Have those guys but none of those guys are the the vocal leader type. Where on the court? They're going to hold everyone accountable. I think they could become that a lot of that is just personality. Like you're either that kind of person who you're not will. Sometimes you got to force yourself to become. That kind of Dirk wasn't always. He's a leader or vocal leader. But he had to force himself to become that kind of player in order to to win a championship and again if if the Mavericks if the Front Office and Carlisle and Cuban this just a learning year. They're not really in it to win it then fine you know go in go in and as the seventh seed be happy that you made the playoffs but they could get so much more experience if they were better like say they did make moves to improve the team not again not stupid. Drastic moves but just those little moves to improve the team a little bit. Then you're even better than you gave him more experience because you're going to go deeper in the playoffs. I mean what experience and Stu you get going in as the seven seed and facing the clippers and getting swept in the first round. I mean there's no experience they might learn that you that intensity city that you have to play with. Yeah I mean. They're going to learn that really quick. It's like I tweeted. The other day are not ready for the playoffs when they are hit with that playoff intensity. They're we're not gonNA hit the thing like they have stretches where they have that type of intensive cut out of forty innings. Yes that's what I like. In this game. They had they had a stretch and then it was like see. This is just normal basketball. This is how you should play. The game really played well the entire second half for the most part. There was a a couple of days with that first. Half mean you're just it was sleepwalking. Yeah exactly so yeah. They got a long way to go now. They have a long way left in the season. They need to get lucas rest. which is you know honestly? This ankle injury in my opinion isn't the worst thing in the world. Because he needed some rest he was getting beat. beat up his field. Goal percentage was just dropping. So hopefully this will help him have some fresh waves coming out exactly so hopefully. When he comes back he'll be nice and fresh? They have a soft cake schedule. After the All star break the gotTa take advantage of waste. Were February was an easy month. We're already almost halfway through a stretch. Where they win nine out of eleven or something like that? But it's like you already had the signs you had the grizzlies. You had. The wizards like February wasn't easy month. Were already almost halfway through late. This isn't GonNa last forever. Yeah Yeah I mean they still they still have some easy gains they. You GotTa have a nice stretch the gotta get some confidence back and they got some freaking defense Cuban said that he's trying to get Derg to spend more time with Luca. I I would like that too. I mean you. Can't the guy retired on. If you would have signed a veteran you know maybe they would have done that. I mean they do have courtney Lee in berea array of but they never play. I played tonight but they never plays so. I mean I would like for them to spend time together so he can learn the ways of the shooter. Yeah the ways as of the jet I but I I understand what you're saying like he's retired. Let him have a year off or something but it would be nice. I mean just teaching those little things about dealing with the physical defense or dealing with that frustration. The fouls stuff like that. I could help think about when you were twenty years old. Okay they like Luca is just GonNa learn that and he's going to learn it. The hard way like Everest superstar learns it so that's just going to be it with him now. He'll learn it a lot faster if he experiences in the playoffs and at deep runs where in the Western Conference finals. He's going against Co Hawaiian Paul George and they they just destroy choice than when the champion. Exactly you know so. He'll he'll see that kind of stuff but you know I just I don't I don't know there's so much about the mentality of the season the way they. They've created it that their number one goal is not winning inning and and and you see like in a game. I tonight where you have injuries. I understand you have injuries. That doesn't mean you can't have an exception Shinwar. You play a guy a couple more minutes instead of having to go and stick with a bench unit that is just not getting it done. You're telling me for one night with all the injuries. You can't play a couple more minutes. Your starters a couple more minutes. You know. It's just that kind of stuff so that is a mentality. That's not got for winning. Its for rest and then you have. The mentality of porzingis is a four spacer. That is his job. That's what he does so the atmosphere that the guards have or the mentality parts for him. A Brunson is terrible. We'll be wide open an offer of a pig and it's like dude. Okay if Rudy Gobert is in front of you. That means that whoever he was guarding kristaps is wide open even an impact but again. That's the mentality. In my opinion that has been created because of Carlisle's openness about how porzingis because of him being a force pacer they have one of the greatest offenses ever but then the the ball handlers. Don't look for posing as they look how they can benefit from porzingas biggest screen. So that's not supporting of winning. And then their unwillingness to make significant moves to help them be better also shows. They're not really in it to win. In in for example we heard this story about the fact that they may have been able to trade for Danny Danny Green. Yeah I know why they didn't do it because there's another third year deal and they wanted to keep their cap space for Jaanus twenty twenty one again. They're showing they're not in it to win it. They're in it to learn this year and grow and I think that's the wrong mentality. You should always go oh to win. I'm not saying sacrifice your future. You make smart move both yes. Yeah and and they're not doing both urges like Um now we're good. We're we're would just arrest our guys even if we're going on a twelve or whatever yeah. porzingas played thirty five minutes tonight. Finished Smith played thirty for he went tin deep. But Yeah I mean I think you can do. Both you can be young and have solid players and and it's not like it's either young young or old it's either a twenty years old or thirty five years old. It's the only thing that there's plenty of guys in between there may be twenty four twenty five. That are still. It's like it's everything they do is not about winning. It's about something else you know. The reason they don't play play players more than thirty four minutes or whatever is to extend their career. Well what's the point if you're losing games or they they you all this player technology or health or whatever. It's not about winning. Nothing they do is about winning. It's got some other motive to it. which is all good motives? But they don't make decisions to help them win games. I don't know like I feel like that's I can't really say what their motive is well. Obviously they don't know that their motive obviously they want to win. They don't realize it all the decisions they make. Don't support that theory or that thought they don't they okay. They took a they take a very long term outlook. Look which is not bad. I mean that's we obviously taking a long term outlook is y. Take an arm along term. But I don't like sometimes 'cause I feel like you. You sacrifice good things that could happen now for something that could happen in the future like like. Yeah obviously if you got you honest that's amazing okay. But for the next two years are we. Are these next two years. Just nothing until he'll tell them yes. So that's that's my thing is like I know. They're not winning the championship this year. I know I you know I don't WanNa bad contract but I feel like there's other things but you know what it's like I feel like I'm beating a dead horse. I WanNa talk about that. They would rather lose one game in one night then change their whole outlook on everything going forward so if you have an opportunity to win a game but that would require playing somebody forty minutes they.

"Just after a team just comes in and and just tranches them they still do not take any pride in their defense. And you know that's just going to continue to happen. I'm not saying in this team. This team is not going to win the championship. I never thought that. And if they lost this game or they're going to lose his game if they lost it though where it was a har hard fought game through how how close game. That's understandable the difficult part. The you know the part that I don't understand is the lack of effort and not only that why. Why do we continue to challenge rudy? Gobert do you not read the scouting report user reasons. He out raced listen defensive player of the year twenty years in a row and yet we're going to try to take Kim off the dribble and shop staff so stupid so speaking speaking of defense the jazz. There's a minute left in the game. They're shooting about sixty percent. You're never GONNA win a game like that. It's like the Washington Wizards. It's the same thing they just shot so well. The mavs shot almost forty eight percent. So I mean it's not like they were they don't defense. Yeah and and the Washington Tin Game. Oh my Gosh I can't even I mean you WanNa talk about defense. That was whatever you WANNA call it a miscommunication or a mistake or something. Bad Bad happened there that it was just it resulted in a wide open layup for a game winner and that never happens like even the best team in the league championship team. They don't want openly as a game winner in three seconds left justified. All you want how that happened will they trick the Mavericks. He tricked doom like look every NBA player. Including Tim. Hardaway knows that your man is going to set a screen for the guy. That's it's in the back court switch but you know and then so it's a wide open layup visit heresy. Yeah Yeah that when I saw that I just started laughing because I was like I can't. I can't believe that just happened just happened. Whole game was was embarrassing? Tim Hardaway's defensive perspective. He's not a good game. He his lack of effort on just so irritated. I'm so irritated because you know. Why would we tune in and waste our Monday evening? I'm watching them because we like basketball but they don't deserve for us to watch the way they've been playing at home. I don't know it's like I. I enjoy walked watching not right now. I don't like watching this but you know it's like when the game is over. I'm frustrated I'm of Said and we might do a pod but but then it's like I go to bed and I go to sleep and I'm fine. I go to work the next morning. It's not like it ruins my life like I enjoy watching basketball and and when I talk about the game when they lose it upsets me. It's just like if they win. You're cheering and screaming. That's the same emotion on the other side. They lose so it's not like you know and then when it's over it's over and then we go on with our lives. I don't know like I. I enjoy watching it but I see what you mean. It's like they don't have the they they don't have focus and they don't have effort and and I don't know the defense may maybe it scheme. Maybe it's talent maybe it is just all effort you know yes. Some players are better at defense and others hardaway. Junior is a bad defense. Never been a a great defender yet but it doesn't mean you don't put forth the effort and the effort it is just not there for them. Yeah in ended up being a four point game but it was not that close over. Yeah Oh espn must be ahead okay. So speaking of defense. Here's a question. There's rumors that the Mavericks might signed Michael Kidd Gilchrist. He cleared waivers today from the Charlotte Hornets. The Hornets didn't want him. But if you can't get solid rotation minutes on the Charlotte Hornets. Why would you want him on the Dallas Mavericks Hammocks the Guy? He thinks his arm everytime shoots it. He is a very good defender. And I mean that's that's worth noting now. I questioned the fit simply because he's not a shooter in the mavs offense. I don't see how that fits if if the Mavericks Pickup Michael Kidd Gilchrist than they go against everything they say they believe in in terms of shooting shooting guy. Have you looked at his form. It's it's weird. It's it's weird. It's like he's right handed but he's actually left hand to read it somewhere that some. I think you've made you've been you but somebody has told him that he's left hand. Yeah and so he shoots it with his right hand side is to and and then just kind of shop. Pretty sure you're just you're left. Handed player ashes shoot with your left hand. But they I don't want I have no interest. In what are you who's GonNa cut. I'd rather have Courtney Lee. Then they might. Yeah and so it's like okay in terms of not being able to shoot like Dwight Powell couldn't shoot and he had addis solid rotation but that's all like Dwight Big Kidd Gilchrist. He has played power forward the past to Seattle. He's not GonNa if you set a screen. There's just GONNA double Luca they're fine. You know why in dating do that with Powell Powell could finish at the rim. At least he can. All you bit Michael Michael Kidd Gilchrist is the worst thing you can do that now. No He's a wing. He's just not that guy. I don't think the mavericks should go after him if they do who. I be shocked if they size only six six. Yeah he he is not now. You're better off just keeping the guys that you have yeah. I'm a little surprised surprised because he was a number two overall. That's why everybody's talking about it for a moment. The Guy cannot get minutes on the Charlotte Arlen Hornets a team. That's been in perpetual rebuild for the last fifteen years is that he was the start of that rebuild. He's just not any good he's he shouldn't even be in the league. I mean he is a very good defender and I think that is congressional interest in China China. But the problem is he can't shoot and I know like the Mavericks Have Develops guys like that Al Franken New Dorian Finney Smith but those word sort of projects that took years during Fini's Smith is in like what his fourth or fifth year and he came in the League as a rookie. was what thirty. Yeah He's twenty six. Al Franken was here for a couple years. Those were projects Kidd Gilchrist. I mean I guess yes sure. They could devote another two to three years to develop his shot. But you'd have had four. I don't know and that's the thing is like I can't imagine carlisle would even want to just seeing that it form I. It doesn't match up. I don't think it needs to even be talked about. And now he's coming to Dallas the other possibility is Maurice Heartache. Circle is he's also a good defender but he's a better shooter. This is a little less sure because he hasn't even been waived there's just talk that he might a B and then if he is like he might be available that's less certain if he's waived I I would take him but the mavericks got to figure out what to do with Porzingis. They gotta figure out what to do with him because he can't play the four but when he's the five. The defense is atrocious atrocious and he gets a lot of blocked shots when he's the four but he doesn't protect the rim at all when he's the five. Think about it they. You don't have any wing defenders aside from Finney Smith but he can't every minute and he's not Janas out there okay so if all of the guards. If all of the perimeter players players get to the rim at ease porzingas can't stop all of them. He can't block all of them. He can't be everywhere sometimes. He's going to be he helping or he's going to be guarding a pig or something. He's not always going to be down there. He can't stop everything. You need some guys to filter it out. That's my point the moms have to figure out what they're going to do going forward because if they're gonNA keep porzingus at the five and look at the one two three and four those. We need to be three elite defenders. At least two of them should be. You already have a weakness in Luca because you can have Luca running around guarding any wing can dribble or be a playmaker. He's got to be hidden because he's exhausted all his energy on offense so it needs to be three. Or if you're I'm not gonNA do that then. You need to have a legit center. Who can play in today's league in half poisoning? It's at the four. Yeah but I. I don't know if that's even possible in the way the League is today I mean I they. That's what they gotta figure out what to do and they got to figure out what to do with that the rest of the season when there was about two games when we go before we got hurt after Dwight Powell where they started seth and Tim Hardaway offensively. It was awesome and we didn't get to see a lot of it so I don't know if they'll try to go back to it going forward but defensive defensively and right now. It's funny because their defense is terrible without Luca and he's really not the guy that you count on to be a great defender. Yeah and yet when he hasn't been out there it's just been a layup run. Yeah and that's I've noticed set to that this period of time without Luca their defense is even worse. And I'm like Lucas Great. He's not awful but he's is not a very good defender will one thing he is good at is helps I defense. He is a smart help side defender so he knows where to be whenever and when he needs to be there and so that's got to account for some of this size and his size. Yeah he's big and he's also rebounding which yeah which they've been. I'm getting getting killed at and I love Porzingis and I think him. Playing the five in my opinion is the way to go. But then you gotta have three elite we s and Tim Hardaway way is not one of those and like. I said he can't do everything like right now. He's the only protection out there. He's the only resistance some of the time and he just he. Can't I do everything and Yeah I think you're right about having the elite primitive vendors right now they have a lot of players who are one dimensional who are very good at one specific thing and and I think that's fine if those guys are like you know the Third Fourth Fifth Best S. player like if Hardaway is your your fourth or fifth best player you know of curry maybe coming home to venture so that's fine but right now I think they have to rely on those guys to much Most of their roster is those players are not very good defenders and you see reflected in their defense..

It's got some other motive to it. which is all good motives? But they don't make decisions to help them win games. I don't know like I feel like that. It's like I can't really say what their motive is well. Obviously they don't know their motive. Obviously they want to win. They don't realize all the decisions they make. Don't support that theory or that thought there. They don't they okay. They took they take a very long term outlook which is not bad. I mean that's obviously taking a long term outlook is always take in a long term. But I don't like sometimes I feel like you. You sacrifice good things that could happen now for something that could happen in the future like. Yeah obviously if you got your honest that's amazing. Okay but for the next two years are we. You are these next two years. Just nothing be until you tell them. Yes so that's that's my thing is like I know. They're not winning the championship this year. I know I don't want a bad contract but I feel like there's other things but you know what I feel like. I'm beating a dead horse. I don't even WanNa talk about that. The they would rather lose one game in one night then change their whole outlook on everything going forward so if you have an opportunity to win a game gained but that would require playing somebody forty minutes they would rather just lose the game then play the Guy Forty minutes that I season for that one game to me. That's the problem and then another problem I have with that is when it comes playoff time and you have to play guys forty minutes. They're going to be gassed fast because they're potty just aren't used to and don't give me this crap well it's good for the players. Protect them from injuries. We have one of the worst injury ridden teams in the League right now. So unclearly. Whatever you're doing doesn't matter it's a load of crap so on in my opinion they were better off where they played a lot of minutes because their bodies became accustomed to playing that many minutes not like a ton minutes forty but but thirty six for crying out loud? You tell me a guy can't play thirty six minutes with thirty one. I guess I did play thirty five. We he played thirty five tonight. But I'm just saying in one particular game you can't sacrifice your whole plan to just try to win one game. You rather lose that game or try to win in another way you can't you gotta play. Sometimes the only players that have it are the starters or sometimes it's only the bench guys and not continue to do equal. The percentages don't equal every game. Sometimes you gotTa make adjustments. So that's a that's our game recap thanks guys for listening. Feel free to share your thoughts. You guys always do like I said we're on twitter at underscore. SIDNEY MEYERS AT MORTON L Myers Let us know how you feel about the game We'll see what they have one or two more game more game on Wednesday before the all-star break So yeah we'll see how that how that goes. Goes you guys so much for listening. I think that's it was the next episode.

It's it's weird. It's it's weird. It's like he's right handed but he's actually left hand. I read somewhere that some. I think you've made been you but somebody hasn't told him that he's left hand. Yeah and so he shoots it with his right hand. Side is to land and then just Kinda shop you're left handed player shoot with your left hand Dan but I don't want I have no interest. In what are you gonNA cut. I'd rather have Courtney Lee then they might at so it's like okay in terms of not Being able to shoot Dwight Powell couldn't shoot and he had a solid rotation but that's all like Dwight Big Kidd Gilchrist. He has played powerful powerful. Where the past to Seattle? But he's not going to if you set a screen. They're just going to double Luca they're gonNA find why they didn't do that with Powell because Powell could finish at the rim mm-hmm. Yeah you know. At least he can. All you bit Michael Kidd Gilchrist is like the worst offensive player can do that now. No He's a wing and it's just not that guy I I don't think the mavericks should go after him but they do. I'd be shocked if they only six six. Yeah he he is not no. You're you're you're better off just keeping the guys that you have yeah. I'm a little surprised it's because he was the number two overall. That's why everybody think about it for a moment. The Guy cannot get minutes on the Charlotte Hornets a team. That's been in perpetual rebuild for the last fifteen years. Not even what. What are you building building? He was anything. The start of that rebuild and he's just not any good he's he shouldn't even be in the league. I mean he is a very good could defender and I congratulate entry point in China or something but the problem is he can't shoot and I know like the Mavericks have developed guys like that Alf. Alf Ruge me new Dorian Finney Smith but those were projects that took years during any Smith is in like what his fourth or fifth year and he came in the League as a rookie at is what thirty. Yeah He's twenty. Six Alfred Amino was here for a couple years like those were projects Kidd Gilchrist. I mean I I guess yeah sure they could devote another two three years to develop his shot. But you'd have had four. I don't know and that's the thing is like I can't imagine matching Carlisle would even just seeing that form. I I don't it doesn't match. I don't think it needs to even be talked about now. Okay eight US coming to Dallas the other possibility is Maurice Heart Mark Liz. He's also a good defender but he's a better shooter now. This is a little less last shore because he hasn't even been waived. There's just talk that he might be and then if he is that the like you might be available. That's less certain. If he's waived saved I I would take him but the mavericks got to figure out what to do with Porzingis. They gotta figure out what to do with him because he can't play the four but when he's the five. The defense is atrocious. And he gets a lot of block shots when he's the four but he he doesn't protect the rim at all when he's the five think about it they don't have any wing defenders aside from finished Smith but he can't every minute and he's not Jaanus out there. Okay okay so if all of the guards if all of the perimeter players get to the rim at ease porzingas can't stop all of them. He can't block doc all of them. He can't be everywhere sometimes. He's going to be helping or he's GonNa be guarding a pig or something. He's not always going to be down there. He can't stop everything. You need eight some guys to filter it out. That's my point. The moms have to figure out what they're gonNA do going forward because if they're going to keep pushing us at the five and Luca at the one then you're two three and four. Those need to be three elite defenders. At least two of them should be. You already have a weakness in Luca because he can't have Luca running around guarding any wing dribble or be a playmaker. He's got to be hidden because he's exhaust. Awesome all his energy on offense so it needs to be three. Or if you're not GonNa do that then you need to have a legit center. Who can play in today's league and have pricing using instead the four? Yeah but I don't know if that's even possible in in the way the League is today I mean that's what they gotta figure out what to do and they gotta figure out what to do with that the rest so the season leg when when there was about two games when we go before he got hurt after Dwight Powell where they started. Seth and Tim Hardaway offensively. It was awesome awesome and we didn't get to see a lot of it so I don't know if they'll try to go back to going forward but but defensive defensively and right now. It's funny funny. Because their defense is terrible without Luca and he's really not the guy that you count on to be a great defender. Yeah and yet when he hasn't been out there here it's just been a layup run. Yeah and that's I've noticed that too that this period of time without Luca their defense is even worse. And I'm like Lucas. Not a great if he's not awful but he's not a very good defender and one thing. He is good at his helps high defense he is a smart art. Help side defenders so he knows where to be whenever and when he needs to be there and so that's got to account for some of this his size and his size he's here he's big and he's also rebounding which yeah which they've been getting getting killed and I love porzingus and I think him. Playing the five in my opinion is the way to go. But then you gotTa have three. Yes and Tim. Hardaway is not one of those and like I said he can't do everything like right now. He's the only protection action out there. He's the only resistance some of the times and he just he can't do everything. And Yeah I think you're right about having. The elite primer defenders. Uh Right now they have a lot of players who are one dimensional who are very good at one specific thing and and I think that's fine if those guys are like the third fourth fifth best player like if Hardaway is your your fourth or fifth best player you know curry on the team. Maybe coming off the bench or something like like. That's fine but right now I think they have to rely on those guys too much Most of their roster is those players are not very good a defenders and you see that reflected in their defense. And there's just there's no guy there's no draymond on their team we always compare AH warriors players Just because they've won the championship the most recent champ but as far as as your defensive anchor your defensive guy holds people people accountable..

"It's actually in the fourth quarter of the gain. There's five minutes left in. Its thirteen point game so we figured it's probably safe to start recording Just just not a good game in a Lotta ways. Is there anything you want to. You want to start with or do you need do you need time to kind of contain detain. You're well have said it over and over that the mavs allowed teams to come into their home court with the mental disposition. And they don't match it and they get punked on their home court and that's just all there is to now. I am not a big fan of the term soft because because in my opinion it's a mental softness on a physical soft and said actually matters but the mavericks are the softest team in the league. Straight up soft like they are. They are allowing teams to come into their court and just punked him and they do not respond. They're like a bunch of lifeless rubber inducts out there trying to play defense late. Those chickens. Yeah that's that's basically them on defense their lack of effort and concern time for the defensive side of the court is embarrassing. And it's just it's ridiculous. Yeah I I see that lack of intensity we talk about like playoff intensity or or killer instinct or hustle or like. There's a lot of different words that people use but it's that level of The disposition that you don't brea the disposition and you know I I don't know what their thought is at home with that that they're just going to and because they're at home and they're crowd is behind them that they're just GonNa blow the other team out because they're so good offensively but other teams know now that they can come into Dallas and win. Yeah and and so they're coming with this mindset. Hey if we try hard they're just GonNa roll over and die. which is what's happened? I mean think about the last three games at home. We Phoenix went on a fifty two to nothing run in the third quarter. Yeah whose last team Before this one team that sucks the Memphis Grizzlies Ninety six to two run in the third quarter and they got blown out. And we're just. Hey you guys go ahead and shoot that three. We're we're just GONNA stand here and watch you. I'm going to go under the screen even though your top ten shooter in the League that that is one of those things that frustrates me as they always go under on A. Ah If there's a pig set at the three point line and it's if it's a guard that has obviously they go under on the screen. I'm like they're I mean they're going to shoot that. I hope their lack of energy and effort on the defensive end. Yeah it's embarrassing. And it's really going to end up. Why they get ousted in the first around because they don't play with the same mental disposition that their opponents do and when their opponents decide that they wanna come and play even if? It's a really sucky lucky team. The Mavericks is roll over. And they allow it to happen. It's embarrassing yeah. It's now they're making a frigging comeback. Yeah I I mean. They're about to go to the free throw line and make it a seven point game. We'll we'll see we'll record life. Yeah but it. It's like I said a couple times last few days. It's like they're just just happy to be playing basketball. You know they're not they don't have that intensity of we want to beat this team or they don't know how hard we have to try what I have to hustle. You know getting the loose ball is like. They're just happy to be out there playing basketball. I don't see anything else beyond just playing the game. Unfortunately that seems to be the Mavericks in General From The coaching staff to the general manager to the owner. Just Hey we're just happy to be playing basketball because you you know their idea. Is they want this team to grow together. And it's like yeah it wouldn't hurt you to have one or two more veterans who can actually play and hold other people accountable accountable on the defensive in. Yeah you know it's just it's embarrassing and sorry so the thing about you know the Mavs are young long and you don't WanNa make any big moves right now because you want this team to develop all that it's like to me. I see that as a self fulfilling prophecy like you're always going to be doing that because the reason that they are this team right now. That's young and inexperienced. And they have no veterans and they're not very good good defensively. The reason they are that is because they don't have better player. You don't have those and you just went through a AH summer free agency where some of those guys were available or through the trade deadline which admittedly they probably didn't have the assets to get some guys but again that that falls back to free agency like you're the ones that build this team and so to me it's a self fulfilling prophecy tas to be like look good thing. We didn't make any drastic moves because they're just not ready you know. They need to grow as the reason they are. That is because of the players on the team and like and I'm not saying I don't want any young players like we've talked for longtime about how we wish they carlisle developed young players and I feel like he's doing that this year and I think that's great. I love the fact that he's embraced Luca. But it's like now on the other side of the spectrum before it was like no one on the team. A under the age of forty is allowed has to be all veterans. But now it's like no one on the team over the age of twenty three. It's like the complete opposite of the spectrum and I just I wish there was somewhere in the middle where we could be building a team and have those veterans and improve and not. Just say well. They're not ready. Let's give them a couple years and then we'll try to go after some big free to me. It's a self fulfilling prophecy like you built a team. That wasn't good enough and now it's like well we don't WanNa make any dramatic moves because we're not GonNa win a championship anyway. We'll never build a team. That's good enough. That one thing is they gotta stop underestimating Luca Gesture. Just stop holding back making decisions. Because you're like oh he's a couple years away he's not. What is he going to have to learn some things absolutely and we've talked about? That doesn't mean you can't go ahead and just start swinging for the fences every single season and like to me. It's not even swinging for the fences. It's like Bogdanovich. The Utah Bogdonovich was available in some of these younger veterans not not necessarily younger but the like the lesser known veteran guys. I'm not saying they needed to go out and sign line. Andre Drummond to a forty million dollar contract or trade your entire team for a guy like that. I'm not saying that I'm just saying I think there were free. Agents available that would have been solid role players. There might have been some of those guys available at the trade deadline. There were rumors that they could have facilitated a trade with the Knicks. Were they ended up with Danny Green. Who We know? They wanted this summer and all they had to give up was the second round. Picking Courtney Lee and to me. It's like I don't know why not it's like it's just guys like that. I'm not saying do something stupid and get you know Blake Griffin and his broken knees for a supermax. I'm not saying that I'm just saying I think there are moves is it could be made to make the team better. And it's well when you don't it's a self. Fulfilling prophecy is slow now. We're we're stuck with this team and and don't get me wrong. There's this guy's on like this is not a horrible team if you look at their record now compared to the previous two three four years even the last time they made the playoffs. I mean they still have a good record record and a lot of this is happening while Luca is out and that is a reality. So they're not a an awful team. Obviously Luca and Porzingas is a great core. I like finished Smith. I think seth curry brings a lot. There's some good guys on. This team is not like gets all garbage. It's just that because of that because I feel like they had those good players. Why not try to add a little more instead of you know now we gotTa Watch this for Free Agency? Twenty thirty eight. You're just want Jaanus or or whatever and so look I mean all of that. Look all well then. I understand whatever you can do that. That's not my problem with his team right now that that's like way if that's the big picture. The problem I have with this game is is. This is a consistent problem where they show a lack of intensity and focus and mental disposition. They can't do anything on the second of a back tobacco and and they came out like they were on three days rest and we came out as if we were on a four. Four Games in four hundred mavs played last on Saturday so they had a day in between and I mean it hasn't been perfect for like I said Lucas out. They've had other injuries stories. I get it but again Utah. Second out of a bag to bag the mavs in this game in their game against the wizards against the grizzlies they look like bottom feeders. They look like a defense teams. Is that like is that. How good Luca is that this? This is what the team really is and Luca just makes them possible jeter like that. That's a possibility too but sorry going. Yeah it's just it's honestly it's their lack of effort really on the defensive end of the court and there's so many times where they're just standing around watching ching the opposing team shoot three after three or really layers. Yes it's like Utah. Starting out game. It handled eleven or something in the pain. It's it's like where is the and then you know I don't know like in this game. For example the mavericks made that huge run made it back bag two eighty three eighty And then Carlisle's switched up the wina in the other team or Utah went on a run a consistent long Ron and he never made a change and it's like he is the biggest push minus guy so normally he always makes a change at the plus minus. This isn't right but then sometimes he sticks to his guns as if you can't make him change anything and Brunson was a minus fourteen gene and he's played twenty six minutes you know. There's there's so much that I'm frustrated about it honestly. I don't even know how to put it all into into words unacceptable to be a five hundred team on your home court. Yeah it's unacceptable and even for a bad team that's a bad data record like even bad teams have at least a decent record on their home core. Unless you're just the worst. Yeah it's it's embarrassing. Yeah the the defensive problems. It's like on defense. They're not really at least the way it looks. Is that there guys okay. Let me for a year. I told you the frustration is is the real the offense when the mavericks are on defense the offensive team team. There's really no like pressure. They can stay can move wherever they wind and get whatever shot they want and the Mavericks Are there but it's kind of soft defense. And they kind of just let them go wherever they want to go and they get shot and and create. Here's my question because is this about talent like maybe these guys just aren't willing offenders or is it about scheme it's effort it's or is it is all effort you don't you don't have to be the best defensive player in the League you have to put forth effort take some pride in defense especially early on your home court. Take some pride and it's embarrassing that.

"And he's looking pretty good. He's still shooting the ball as he did in college. But he's also passing the ball as well. Which has been a new element to his game. That have enjoyed watching with the Charlotte. You're looking at a team that's built around screening for a guy could shoot threes from way out. So they have cody's our they have Marvin Williams, they have Michael Kidd, Gilchrist all very good screeners for their positions. You know, you put another guy who can shoot like Kemba Walker and good things are going to happen. You just need to have him on the court. Let's give a shots. My guy miles bridges, though. He's been killing it. Oh, yeah. She had dunk against the hawks. Because it looked like he was just gonna land flat on his back and like snap is one of the most violent dunks have seen in a long time. He's demolished the rim on that play. Extremely violent all through these guys we've mentioned on Charlotte fit together. Pretty well. I think with Kemba and monk your backward has some defensive issues, but on the offense of end, at least, you know, what we're taught offense those guys fit. Well, I think with monks ability. I heard pre-draft with him. There was some concern at least from some executives that he doesn't care about playing point that he just wants to be a two guard. He likes the score. He doesn't wanna play make. But you know, in college he did show the potential make good passes to playmate for and create for others. And we're we are seeing a little bit at that season. I think that's incredibly encouraging me as he needs to do that needs to be more than just a score especially on the team with a point guard Kemba Walker. Yeah, I think with monk and bridges. This is like the most exciting Hornets team in years, it would be hard to like try to pigeonhole among into being like this caretaker point. Guard. You're not gonna get a lot out of him. If you're Jared Smith is like one of his potential outcomes, right bad thing. JR's clear if you're going to have him on the floor, and you're gonna put him in scoring situations. I think that kind of opens up his willingness do other things, you know, he's one of those guys who you know, you get a couple of buckets in sky's the limit. I mean, we saw that was forty seven point game in college was that Charkes forty seven or forty against UNC. Well, like to me with monk, you wanna see him with like a big point forward type in like a Ben Simmons like if you're Philadelphia would you trade monk for false right now? Chris Ryan would..

"Two thousand fifteen he went i think thirteen maybe fourteen so you don't really see their full potential so i think this is easily a steal i think he's a perfect fit for the next act think once for them back and healthy in this kid jeff year under his belt i think we'll be in a good spot especially being in the eastern don't expect to see him a lot you're one well i don't think he's going to be see who you're one i think knox is gonna play matt thank you will trying to develop them but it doesn't seem to me like everything you read it's like you may not be ready to play the league he's ready to score you may not be ready to defend and you gotta be but we know he's athletic enough to be able to play pick and roll defense which is you know what you want you got to do and this is the one thing that you know just going back and watch just some of the some of the the highlights and this is you're talking about like highlight tapes right which only give you the best stuff deepen the youtube poll of kevin knox last night but he's hitting all these floaters floaters flip those are going to get swatted to the tenth row house he get swatted who i mean he's shooting over most people what's his what's his wingspan like seven three i know what i did sinbad rather we watching them shoot threes and the other thing too about calipari and listen for as many hits there are the archie goodwin's so let's not forget the daniel organs and the doron lamps because they're out there to class you're saying you gotta be reasonable i don't want to hear anything from calabashes cal's gonna say what he's going to say because every player that ever played for him is going to be the greatest things slide sprint and the steal of the draft because he's quoting when he says that expect him to say that but let's any of that seriously let's not pretend like there there was never a michael kidd gilchrist or whatever they have guys who come out of kentucky or just dudes but a kid is eighteen you talk about being this piece of clay molded without this guy's not tough where he can't play defense that's what you essentially this will be his sophomore year in college.
