"Curbside pickup currently mostly cloudy and twenty two from the regular third quarter weather center I'm Jerry Peterson on newstalk eight throw WCCO from indoors Joe Biden for preservation I was states choosing Joe to be my vice president was one of the best decisions I ever made then it became a close friend the house yesterday I'm sure you're well aware of that now the pros former president endorsing Joe vital talk about that in a few minutes just talk about covert nineteen related issues right now because boys tested the session got together in fact I would ask you are they gonna get together more often now is that something they decided yesterday they are it it's clear that the Senate is going to try to get to and every three day schedule right now they're gonna start to hold their more traditional committee meetings buyers who and the public's been able to watch those criminals get played and public television the way normal committee hearings have so it's been really interesting I think the only the the big difference is the roll call take a really long time because they really go through and make sure everybody's present and they make sure their votes every vote is a roll call vote so that's part of it and then of course the there's never occasionally a glitch of somebody having an avatar upsets maybe their business or something else or something like that or they they talk in there on mute which we all do I think it's called him an assume so but they've been very efficient there and so the Senate will come back tomorrow the house is expected to come back Friday that bill for allowing restaurants to do take out liquor is expected to be a kind of a top priority they worked out some final Kinks yesterday it seems like and and they'll be a couple other bills and then they're gonna look at other legislation it'll be interesting to see kind of what other legislation this session matters because it cost any money they're not likely to do it but if it saves the state money they they will probably start to figure out how to do it voice of what was it decided yesterday at the session you know the first big thing was that Alex Smith incluindo the excellent security bill that had been worked on for over a year maybe multiple years so that got done and then it was a lot of technical changes to state law only one person having to appear for a marriage license some driving changes that make things more efficient drivers that were in the works they're gonna stay in the state the money and make registration and some of those things more efficient over time those are discovered during the mid March process so nothing major they allocated about a million and a half dollars to second harvest food shelves so that they could buy some protein from Minnesota farmers that they're using to feed Minnesota so that any big things but but Paul conducted feels very strongly that they need to get back into a normal rhythm well it's interesting too because the road we do have the stay at home order still in progress but I did see the governor said that a group of state agency leaders will look at exemptions for more businesses over the coming weeks yeah he talks or document that Monday they start the ally that little more I'm really looking forward your conversations start market later this morning the stock has a daily call with the administration and kind of what the outlook is for business they've tried to open it up this week but it you know it's just where people are getting certain hidden patient and the warmer it gets here people are getting more impatient and you know we're now going into a month and we know we have two or three more weeks of a stay at home order and so the idea is how do we look forward and I keep saying whatever character the governor concert to dangle that people have to look forward to like the fishing opener like golf courses but what that actually get people back to work one of them I think it's going to be healthcare ships I think they're gonna see if they really do have control over covert from on demand and hospital beds are there certain health care facilities and if they have the right tools they could go back to elective surgeries because I think that would get a lot of people back to work yeah yeah the exam factor Dr Austin or a doctor Hilton told us the other day that he was very concerned about that particularly that and then also I would and then you know the other thing that he's concerned about voices we get sick we try to avoid calling our doctor because we know that they're dealing with other things in it and he said that's concerning to us so you you know you've got to use common sense certainly yeah the other Nagata if you have a dental emergency call your dentist don't go to the ER that's the other P. outing at Dr Dennis last night at the Midrand sixty miles to come see him because you know that that's what you need to do if you have a dental emergencies so just a good reminder for everyone present Obama endorsing Joe Biden what do you think all right well no surprise obviously I think he probably wanted to ignore some earlier but he knew that it didn't it had it had to look like the powers that be want kicking biting at the Wynn and on and on and that's what happened but you know let's watch to see kind of how this campaigning start burning we get cold but we don't see any rallies we don't see any energy they've talked about by having trouble fundraising because there's not a way to fly around the country during money right now so I think you start to see this you know probably made you can turn into a real rates where people start to cover it but hope is going to dominate the news in the near term yeah no doubt about a boy said the other thing I would ask you before you get out here this morning is what elections when they come are where we are prepared or what's the status there and what's the procedure there right now as far as exploring possible alternative options so far this is going to be one of the points that the Minnesota legislature begins to discuss and debate is how are we preparing for these elections last week Democrats said we should do mail in ballots to every voter Republican think the compromises with application Minnesota has built use the voting so we could just maintain that and people who want ballots could request them but then you add up volunteers and poll workers and technology and all those things how long does it take to Wisconsin about six days the count all their absentee ballots and seventy one percent of the people in last week's Wisconsin primary so it's not a full election voted by absentee ballot so that's that's a toll creams to the operations and ultimately the legislature's gonna have to approve federal money that the state has been allocated and that could be a little bit of a political hang up plus lots of talk about if I

"midrand" Discussed on Open Floor: SI's NBA Show
"He ran into the lower leg. Problems foot problems late in his career right before things started to drastically change so we don't really know it's all hypothetical here but I do remember watching career. Yeah because he was in a playoff series against the blazers and I was already starting to feel a level of sympathy for him. You know I know. People were really shocked and disheartened. When he retired. It just seemed like it was such an active labour. Every time he was he was running up and down the core trying to move around his body just wasn't where it needed to be and so from that standpoint. I was almost relieved when he retired to a certain degree. I hadn't fought him that closely. But it was one of those situations where it's like. Yeah go out on top right like don't put yourself through years of agony for diminishing returns here especially because he's such an important figure for his entire country so for me. His career almost played out the way it needed to right. If you had better that would have been great but I feel like the time line worked out okay for him. Did you have any other nominations on this one Michael? Yeah I have a few the first player who popped into my head was George Gervin and I say George Gervin because I've been reading a lot about NBA history over the past couple of weeks. Just books that I have in my apartment and there was this one anecdote that I read about. How during the playoffs? With the San Antonio Spurs Their strategy was usually to take even and then just kind of isolate him against the weakest defender on the opposing team as often as they could and The obvious parallel there is what Houston Rockets do with James Harden. So if you were to take George Gervin and kind of put him in this era where he was able to access his range. Great shooter And let him isolate on guys who couldn't stick with him and also would not be allowed to hand check. I think he could average like easily over. Forty points a game. Whoa Oh so you think he's going to average more than any modern players so you just like on pure skill basis and physical tools basis. He is more gifted than any modern player. I think that if they deployed the exact same strategy that yes Absolute Freak incredible player. One of the most underrated players all time greats offensively in NBA History. If you were to plop them in with these rules and with this much spacing Yeah I think he would he. I don't WanNa say easily average over forty. But he would be virtually unstoppable. While do you want this just so that hard and can isolate even more an average forty points. A game is they need a pace antagonist. Yes I am hoping Mike Dantonio listening. I'm just pushing him. Needling him to try to get pushed over the edge. Who else you got. So I have Pete Mayor Vic and it Kinda goes along the same lines of just. Here's a guy who was not able to really take advantage of his ridiculous range in the way that we would have liked to see. I mean he played in college with really out of three point line and he's still average over forty four points a game every year when he was at lsu which is really really wild. I mean there's a lot of conversation right now. On the Internet of who the best college players were ever Which is something we don't need to get into because your boy to Michael Jordan was voted number one even though that is obvious. Lunacy I mean when Magic Johnson comes out and sides against Michael Jordan publicly. You know that your poll has screwed up. Imagine got the answer right. It's Kareem and even the diehard Jordan Stan over here can admit that I'm really proud of you for that So Pete Mayor Mich if he was on the NBA now Just able to let loose off the bounce You know there's probably some people who are like he would be Jimmer for debt. I think he would be just a phenomenal. Dynamo I mean looking at how trae young plays offensively. I think we would see some that with Pete Mayor Mich if not more entertaining and more thrilling Pete. Marriage was just a guy who needed the instagram and twitter. Era To you I mean he. His legacy as a player has already released drawn. There's multiple biographies about him. He has this legendary spot in in the history of the game Crazy college status. I think one of the things that identify more than any other but if he had the benefits of being a modern athlete. It's pretty insane to think about like how famous he would have become Because his skill level and his his ability was just you know sky-high couple games. I've thought of I mean it's an obvious one but shack I think that if he had come up in the modern era more and more focus on fitness getting up and down the court and everything else. I would like to think that his career would have played out a little bit differently. His self care in terms of his body would play out differently and he would. Just be this crazy mismatch nightmare from everyone and there was a level of skill there too when it came to dribbling and and pushing the ball court passing every once in a while and just the type of centers who are in the NBA. Right now would have no chance so he would just be sort of this cross current similar to like what an embiid is At this point but you know to me even more get better. Yeah better better and more athletic and More dominant right is so. I'd go go back and watch shack when he was on the Orlando Magic. If you don't know what we're talking about. Because some of the stuff that he could do when he was more fleet of foot like just completely unstoppable. Forget about lake when he was the most dominant player. Ever with the Lakers. And just you could not handle him Without a double team Like those times when he was with the Orlando Magic when he was just a super freak athlete going coast to coast diving for loose balls like that shack is one of the best players ever in my in my own imagination for sure and I just feel like the modern culture of like everybody's locked in twelve months a year taking care of your body nutrition. You know all that kind of stuff could have had a positive impact on him and take his even higher than it already was which was excellent couple other names. Real Quick Steve Nash and Allen Iverson and I think Steve Nash has been the subject of a lot of twitter conversations this week because of this idea volume in terms of how often was he shooting. Was He too unselfish He was such an incredible shooter if he had taken the number of shots at Steph taken or if he had had like a trae young type green light what does his career look like. How teams function he. Maybe he needed to be slightly more selfish and I think if he comes up ten years later the hard wiring a pass first and just the spectacular playmaker. He was for his teammates. Is probably a little bit lessened just from like cultural basketball culture standpoint right like he was still kind of growing up and going to college in an era where guys like stockton were among the most revered point guards in the NBA and if point guards are more empowered as scores as he's coming up and he just starts to be a little bit more ingrained as a score like he started to later in his career to slightly. I think the sky would have been the limit for them. I'M NOT THE WORLD'S BIG BIG Steve Nationally. But he was an insanely good shooter. Fifty forty ninety type guy from every single place on the court three point range and the impact that he had stretching defenses with his passing. I think would have just been amplified if he was more of a high volume three point shooting threat as well. So that's one guy and then with Iverson it's just an idea of like okay. If Lou Williams looks good in two thousand twenty compared to what he looked like in two thousand fifteen or two thousand twelve right then what does Iverson look like in two thousand twenty? The Iverson went. Well I I WANNA start with Nash. Because I think it's fascinating that you're trying to take away what is arguably his best quality. Which is is his selflessness. Come on Michael. Don't put words in my mouth and my trying to take it away. I'm just trying to tone it exactly what you're doing. So yeah you trying to just cut nash. Down at the knees was just as uncalled for and I won't stand for it. I'm just saying like instead of devoting his entire life to charity which we all know people who have done the move overseas to do the Peace Corps and never come back right. All I'm saying is come back a little bit right you know just engage in the capitalistic system just slightly and see where it takes you because he's the type of guy who could be both the Peace Corps volunteer and a millionaire. That's all I'm saying so share follow Iverson is I kind of go the exact other direction with you on that one. I don't think Iverson would have had the type of career that he did if he was in the modern era. He just if you WANNA have the ball as often as you as he did. And you can't shoot. Three's particularly off the bounce. You're just GONNA have a tough time and I think you could the case that if you surrounded him with even more spacing and his his driving lanes or even wider that it wouldn't matter but this guy was he can't shoot like Lou Williams shoot can choose so. I think that that that kind of would be to is detrimental a little bit. I think that he would have the toughest time adjusting Of of sort of big time stars for a few reasons. First of all the coach ability aspect right And the idea that you're going to be reprogrammed in no midrand shots Efficiency Super Super Important. You have to cut out. The low percentage long twos from your diet kind of no matter. What and you know taking care of yourself to Year round. I think that's an issue though. All of those are concerns that I would have on the flipside his finishing ability ability to take contact ability to draw contact his sheer speed off the bounce. Acceleration bag of moves ability to get to the rim. All that stuff was just crazy elite in an era where there was no room to operate. Because you just had ostertag's in every direction you know all these giant big body lumbering centers screwing things up for a guy off the dribble so there would be adjustments. I'm not necessarily sure that he would handle the transition perfectly but it is one guide like to watch and before we get off five or so. Then we should say that he'd led the League in scoring four times and averaged over thirty points per game four times and is just a fireball of person. So so you're already you already regretting you're You're dissing of him. Is that what you're saying now? I just think he's. He's perfect in the era in which he thrived is what I would say okay man of his own time. Do you have any other nominations? So I do have one but I feel like you will roast me if I say it should it should. I should definitely say which Celtic is it going to be. Larry Bird Bill McKay literally. Yeah you guessed it on the first drag So my my my case for bird I did. Oh my guest it. You guessed it on the first time. I've been meaning to give you this speech. Okay okay. It's all it's all fun and Games when you get the nickname it's nice. You've got a little pod clout now. Everybody's really liking but one thing I've learned over the years of doing this is that you really have to be careful when it comes to self parody because now everybody just thinks on this. Lego loving Dork. Who WALKS AROUND OUTDOORS? Smells the trees all day? Long a half to lean into it a half to play along with it but if every single question is answered with the answer Jason Tatum. Or Larry Bird. I hate to break it to. You're going to become that guy. Michael Are you okay with that? I'm just being authentic to myself bed. That is all this is i. I can't apologize for it. Gives you the Larry Bird breakdown? Who's guarding.

"midrand" Discussed on The Bill Barnwell Show
"They've leaned more on the rookie tight end Dallas Goddard who has played well Zakar is obviously having a great season. And so. Those have been some of the major differences, and then, you know, they've simplify things, and I'm always sort of hesitant to give credit when a coach says like, oh, we're, you know, we're going to simplify things it seems like something say whenever things aren't going. Well, but you can see it. When you watch the games, you know, they've really taken out a lot of the shifts in the pre snap motion that's helped fold and then they just go back to the same place that he likes over and over again. I I know we talked about that mesh concept last time, I was on with you. I mean, they're running that like five times a game with Nick foles, which is favorite play. He knows exactly how to read it, you know, where to go with the football. And so they have done a good job of going to kind of his comfort place. Just like they did last year in the postseason. Yeah. I mean, Nick foles and air raid quarterback in college, certainly familiar with mesh go max. And then, of course, ran it arena. I of it for a lot of muster making chunk of yardage fair amount of the time with chip Kelly during chip Kelly's time and Philadelphia. And in in terms of the the golden Tate trade, I mean. Disley? I think with the benefit of hindsight he you would go back and say, okay. Well, the eagles made a bad trade. Now, it's gonna hurt them that much because I think they will get a Compaq. I don't see them spending a tone in free agency this year. So even if you know, you try to the Midrand pick you're going to get a lesser pick back, but it was a rental. And I think at the end of the end of the day. It was a terrible franchise altering decision. But. Do you think we were may be a little too aggressive at the moment before we knew it was going to happen? Just because he played in the slot. And there were so many eagles receivers who wanted to work out of the slot and work the intermediate routes with the field. Yeah. I mean, I think you're right. And you know, to be perfectly honest when they made the trade I said it was a gamble worth taking. I thought you had another playmaker to the offense. Like you said. I mean, there is some downside. But it's not huge downside that it's going to cripple your franchise. Elsewhere in the off season, you know, they're gonna have to wait a year to get that thick and they gave up a third rounder. But you do get it back in a couple of years. So I thought it was a a swing worth taking. And you know, I thought my assumption at the time was they have to have a plan. You know, if they're making like this for golden faith. I I assume that they would have a plan for Nelson aga- Lauren for the tight ends and how to make sort of all the pieces work together. And how to get every buddy the ball. And you know, maybe they did have a plan, but it certainly has different come to fruition. And it seems like they were sort of confused and unsure about how to incorporate golden tape into the offense. I mean the first couple of weeks there just or speeding him the ball. And you know, he was averaging I think like, I don't know. I think the quarterback. Ravaging three four yards per tempt. When they were throwing the football to him, the chemistry seemed totally also, you know, it's always tough. That's sorta connect between the front office and the coaching staff, you know, maybe Doug Peterson was saying, you know, just get him for me, and I can figure out a way to make it work. And you know, it's it's just tough sometimes that does work and sometimes you had a plan, and it doesn't really work out..
"midrand" Discussed on The Lowe Post
"And now, I kind of feel like you were maybe I might be spoiling a story that I kinda wanna do I probably have to explore it. And depending on what angle take with it. I might have to kind of ask one of my buddies at work for some math help with it. But I'm really struck by the fact that this is a team that has basically said Nager kind of said this in preseason. I don't know if ever came all the way out and said, but I probably look through some of his comments from the they aren't good and half court. They're actually really bad and half court. And we'll get into some of that. I think they're twenty first or twenty second in the league and half court offense, according to and predictable. So when they're taking the ball out of the basket and running down the other so twenty-first inefficiency when they do that. But they still try. They're like top two or top three in the league in how fast they get off a shot. No matter what the situation is. When they're. In the ball out of the basket when they're getting the ball off miss when they're forcing turnover. So they're rushing the ball down the court. But you know, some teams might start a game that way they back off a little bit of take their foot off the pedal. They're doing this for basically the whole game. And to me what it kind of looks like the other thing that really strikes me about this team is that they I think they have the best record in the league and clutch scenario so far. Ooh, I didn't know that. So what's really fascinating to me is that and this is my theory. And maybe what I'm blowing my idea on to talk about your podcast is that they kind of looked like they're tiring teams out. They get to the end of the game. And they're kind of like the young boxer that still has some stamina left at the end of a fight and other teams don't and they end up winning games that way because they don't take their put off the pedal with their offense, and they're efficient enough to kind of pull it off and their defense gets better. And that's the thing that I'm wondering is that how much of the fact that they do. Well, at the end of games on defense is kind of can you attribute to the fact that they're tiring team? Out. They can't play at that pace. So I don't know how much of that is true. Also, it doesn't always work. If you watch the game last weekend, they played against the warriors. It looked like FOX was too tired. He was short. I guess maybe not short arming. But you know, it looked like his legs aren't really under him at the end of that game. Where I think he had a couple of turnovers and was like one of four or one of five in the last two minutes of that game. And so, you know, it's gonna backfire it's obviously going to backfire at times. But that's really fascinating to me. Just kinda that this team the way they're playing in the fact that it's not just that they play with certain lineups. They play fast. They play fast pretty much all the time. And they really don't slow down all that much in second half when they're much better and second half their negative by kind of a mile, and I have some games, but they're positive both the third quarter on the fourth quarter. Yeah. They have. They have some indicators that may be of fall off coming. Yeah. I agree with that like they shoot not enough threes and too many Midrand shots and day. Give up a lot of threes. What the biggest indicator of have? I know they're probably gonna fall off for at least one person V leaks shooting almost I think he's like fifty percent almost from the from three. I think he's at forty nine percent which is better than he shot from the field in any season. So they are shooting there from three as a team their third in the league in three point..
"midrand" Discussed on The Lowe Post
"You know? Top three offense in the NBA, equivalent wise of since the trade they have allowed one hundred thirteen which is very bad and ranks twenty third since the Butler trade so the defense has been bad and that I don't care about. Because if you don't give you I'll give you an out here defensively their fifth in shot opponent shop probability since the tray. I thought they were third. I looked this up to I thought they haven't dot quality. So, but what bottom line is is? Yeah, the defense has been bad. But they've actually not yielding. Yeah. There's there's shot quality against his been better since the trade and opponents are shooting some preposterous percentage Midrand shots now. I don't think that's all just. A bad luck. I do think without Covington. And this is what drove me crazy last year. The le- I have to triple check that. This is true. But the league wouldn't let me put Covington as a guard for all defense purposes. And I wanted to put him as a guard because it would it would have made by first team the way I wanted it. And they're like, no he's a forward. Ben Simmons is a garden. It was like here's statistics showing you that Ben that Robert Covington is d- most frequent defender of point guards on the Philadelphia. Seventy sixers. I'm like fifty nine percent of possessions. He's defending opposing point guards. Why can't I put them as guard and the answer of the way you can't Ben Simmons is a guard. And I literally said, well that's stupid I protests, but I'm still gonna vote the way you tell me to anyway. And so mine is Robert Covington as great as Jimmy Butler is I think this is actually there was this whole thing like for four or five years ago like point guard defense doesn't matter point guards are unguarded. Well, it's relevant. You can't do anything about them. And I never and every time you get to the playoffs. That would be disproven. It was important to have someone who. Could make their lives a little bit more difficult. And I think we're starting to realize as good as Jimmy Butler, isn't Ben Simmons can guard literally every position on the floor. It's hard for a guy who six eight to consistently wiggle around and wiggle buh. Oh, get skinny around those screens and chase guys who chase Kimball. Walker and chase. You know, you name it like that's hard to do. And Covington is just better at that than the guys. They've got leftover Markelle Fultz is decent at that. Also, not playing at. I think that they've they missed that. And so some of those guys are coming at Embiid with a little more daylight on either side of them in some of those midrange looks are better than the Sixers probably want them to be. So I think that that's worth monitoring. But in general, given the shots. They are allowing I'm not worried about the defense, and I'm very encouraged about how the offense is look. No. And a great parable of this. Right. And the heartbreak in some ways was the two thousand thirteenth Spurs finals defense where you know, you so many teams that were making allowances that if you wanna know. Open seventeen footer you can have it. And now, you just have to kind of negotiate wh what is the definition between ridiculously open seventeen footer that. Yes, we know. It's not a hyper Senate shot, but we should probably a little bit contest. It even if it means compromising scheme, or hey, you know, it just let them fly..

"So there are third from the bottom and percentage of their shots that are threes. They take a lot of mid-range shots. One of the reasons that's not hurting them as they're shooting the hell out of both Midrand shots and they're shooting. Fifty one percent on a corner threes, which is so like the few they're getting they're making half of them and Alpin Gallo men. He's I'll tell you. What else? First of all. I'm glad you mentioned Gallo. I'm almost ready to say it, and I'm knocking on the giant wooden table in my hotel room. I don't think it's would actually I'm I'm really whatever I'm super happy for him. And. I'm also afraid to say because he literally like just those words may tear his hamstring like somehow the carrying over the wind will tear his amp string. But. And if you look at his career he's rarely had seasons where he both got to the line at a super Gallo level and hit threes in the same season. And he's doing that now and just it's it's really nice to see because the guys just his body has betrayed him. So many times, I just hope it stays hope. It keeps going toe bias, plus Lou plus into bias as good man that dude just made himself into a really good NBA player really three times myself, and he's still only twenty six years old. I think there's a real chance that I mean, the clippers would certainly renounce him to get to star free agents. I don't believe they need to renounce him to get just one. They may just be like we're cool having this guy be our second or third best player for a long time. Like we with him and Shay guild yoursel gender. Who's going to be really good? And like star ex like we're cool with that. Like, if we don't get star be star ex storm via just named if we don't get star be instead of star, y or whatever like what Tobias Harris being that guy. Let's hit Memphis boil boy if there's a team I'm going to be wrong on I'm happy. It's Marcus team because I did not see this coming. There are eleven and five. There are the third. Best defense in the NBA in something like two twenty third best offense which which could raise a little bit of a warning flag. But I did not pick them to make the playoffs. I just I didn't see this coming. So what what is surprised you? Jaren Jackson juniors. Amazing. He turned nineteen a month ago. He I feel like if he was in New York or LA like they would be calls for him every day on the jump or sportscenter feature this dude because he's legit. He is awesome. They're super long. I mean, Kyle Anderson was one of those weird signings. This off season was like really the Kyle Anderson on that team. Well, I'm glad you brought him up. And I'll let you get back to your point as soon as possible. But he's he's one of the reasons why I was pessimistic on them for this reason, he's usage rate is super super low percentage. And I thought they just signed all these low usage guys like temple like these like seventh guys. Yes. Around two stars. Who are a injured a lot in the last couple of years and be not like big shot, takers. Selves like, I just didn't see how they were gonna get buckets. And Kyle Kyle Anderson do straight dropped and they're still winning. Sorry. Go ahead. Yeah. So that's that's big that just their length and Jaren Jackson. He's he's huge. And then you have Markelle Saul. I think I think our guy Dan vine tweeted out there wing spans and how like you're at temple for whatever reason doesn't have a wingspan out there. But you know, he's got a ridiculous wingspan. It's just they play really smart defense. And as as you said as long as those two guys Conley and Marcus solar healthy, I think this team is going to win fifty games. But if you're happy, we might make another steak dinner, but on that in our thing, our steak dinner bet last year, I think should go down as a push even though I wanted. I I didn't win it in the smoothies, take biscuit and spirit you one last year in the off season. I came.

"I think what really allows them to be an effective three point series super quick release and he can do it. Versity he was shooting on the move off the dribble off screens. You shouldn't really deep behind the three point line, like you said, it was looking SuperFood like every time and they shot like seven threes a game in summer league and in college he shot just about as much. So he's a high volume. Three point shooter can do it off a lot of different movements. So I think that bodes well for his ability to develop into a row player, like you said, the age is kind of problem when you factor in like we'll how much better is this guy gonna get and is he gonna get any edited athleticism? He's probably only to start declining from this point forward. So I thought he did well in some other areas. You know, some good reads on whether he was coming off the curl and hitting the the big roll into the hoop stuff like that. He had a couple nice passage is not going to be like somebody that's create now to pick and roll showed some nice touch on his floaters on and defensively. I thought he was okay. He competed. He played smart at times like when he'd be matched up against like a, you know, a clear shoe. He climbed up then give any space, but he's not the most athletic guy's not gonna slide super. Well, I I didn't think he played that phys. Physical defensively thought he got knocked back a couple times, but I don't know. I think he could hold up, you know, well enough there. He wasn't, you know, a liability in summer league in ee may face more problems in the NBA when he's gonna have to guard bigger, you know, all star threes, but so does everybody. So I think he's a guy that could play a role for the pelicans pretty soon just as a guy that's pretty pro ready. Yeah. And they need some guys who can shoot the ball on the wing is interesting. I think he's got a lot of similarities with the player that another poke in Darius Miller has become guy with good size. Shoots the ball while, but you know a little bit slow out as it may be a little bit more athletes than Miller is. We've seen Miller really shoot the ball extremely wealthy NBA level, which we haven't seen from Blewett art. Let's finish up. We are finally, here were done with all thirty teams after this on the Utah Jazz. Who do you want to start with for them? Let's let's start with the not so good. I, I thought Tony Bradley was pretty discouraging overall. I think I looked at his. And his numbers are actually much better than I thought he shot really well, obviously, Motors, you know, without question he he's a killer offense of rebounder. He's so strong and he goes after everything's got that long wingspan. So that's a huge selling point forum. And I guess is touched around the hoop was okay, but just overall, like I don't see how is less ISM is to, you know, fly at the level at all, like e targeted in summer league games where you know teams down the stretch of one game where it was like a close game, like they weren't like pick and roll atom like three straight times and he he couldn't, you know, switch out or contest Midrand shots in the pick and roll on whether was dropped coverage, you're switching. So I, I don't think defensively he's going to be a factor and even just on offense. I don't know how he's gonna finish, you know, super well around. There hasn't touch and he's strong, but they're the times raid, catch it wide open, nobody around him and he didn't dunk it. He'd like it up and I know that's not everything, but like this guy doesn't get off the floor at all, whether as time and space or no, Spacey's not really going to be a roll man. Like he's not, you know, somebody that's fly into the hoop, he's not the most coordinated like on the MU. Move. So I, this is like you said with the other guys, like when the jazz drafting Tony Bradley, like what was the way that he was going to work in the NBA? I think they were convinced that he had more perimeter skills than I think you shown. So that hasn't quite panned out and he's still young..

Had, some good lawn mowing talk we had to, get, to that. There's, actually more to say The white receiver thing yeah It's not at all historically what. They've been under ballot check I remember when. I, was, covering the team oh Jerome Solomon? Who wrote for the globe no white survey, on he was, like he he would say why is it when everybody does mock drafts, and they talk about. Receivers the patriots might draft they always pick all of the, like crafty white college. Receivers and it was true if you read through, everybody was guilty of current we. All we're like kinda guy, this is, twelve years ago but yes it would have been. The Braxton Berrios types back then they also. Collie those kind of guys we're always talking about patriots receivers and go through their rosters from a one to like when, Aaron Hernandez and, gronk arrived or you know Welker. Starting kind of with welcome it was. Just go, down the list there were. There, were. No white receivers no never and. It's also a league thing I know the patriots end, up with these white receivers and then that, the comes a talking point but it's also the way I think Bomani is onto something the way the league, looks at them and. One Example would be any time you get to draft combine stuff and they do player comps There a wide, receiver these only compared to another white receiver in, fact one of them that. Stands out I don't know why it stands out to, you but it does years ago there was a. Wide receiver at Texas am Ryan, Swope and he ended up not playing in the pros he had some sort of injury but, he's at, the combine in one of the write ups was just all the cliches about you know, he's a good route runner which needs to be. To make up for lack, of speed. And he's smart and all of a sudden nonsense he ran, like a four four forty he had one of the top three forty times for receivers but, the whole right up was about like. They didn't see. Him play and they just said he's the. Next Wes Welker it was it was ridiculous so I think there is something, to that we can. Continue with your thoughts on on, Bomani Jones's thoughts on the. Patriots, Eric decker being signed it's, going to be all football the, rest of the way now we also, have Pete Abraham he caught up with John. Henry the owner of the Red Sox.
