"The line so i think the biggest thing for me was especially being like college player on the women's side. It's also like a lot different in. I've mentioned this on a couple other like podcasts. Have done it is like a little bit slower and it's a lot more technical and there's i would also say there's different kinds of strategy in the women's game and in college in general with a longer shot clock like thirty seconds with here it's twenty four and actions are so much quicker and in the biggest thing i've done the past couple weeks just being with the t. Wolves a big responsibility. I have is kinda doing play. Calls for other teams and a lot of the actions in the nba are just so much quicker. But that's been a big adjustment for me. Just kinda learning all those play calls and sometimes it's not even a blank. It's just a read but you have to know the specific action. They're doing whether it's a pass and come offer a. D. h. o. Like just really quick actions. That teams do that. I'm not used to seeing in the college game or actions that i never specifically did when i was playing so learning those things and just adjusting overall to the skill level the nba game. It's it's it's been superfund because it's the best basketball that you know exists in this world so it's a dream for me but it is different than it is an adjustment but it's been really fun and learning all these offensive concepts has been than really really cool. I'm so excited for this whole season to play out in. Its ranks gets fast coming fast. It's pretty soon so at. You're on day three now. It's crazy to think about all these days coming up.

"So i it's kind of like decades of a relationship being bill so i've really been able to lean on him whenever i have questions about anything career-wise and he was like you have to go to summer. League like n just hooked me up with like seven. Different meetings with like billy donovan. Steve clifford like eric. Just every one. You could possibly want me as like a young aspiring coach. I was able to meet with them even before. I was done playing so i was able to just kind of absorb all this information and get so much advice from these top tier head coaches and people who are in positions that i want be in some day. So he's stan has been great to me in terms of advice like i'm always kind of texting bothering him in asking questions in. He's he's just awesome about really being candidate and telling me this is what you gotta do and you know stand tells you to do something. Probably something you've gotta do to pre- definitely good ideas and like badges generalists. Something that you if you number one should look for them then once you have them keeping close right. Definitely louis with you as a resource. Going forward is ready to help you out so much these last two years i can only imagine that so cool but then thinking a little bit more about lately you kind of skipped over that part to the super bowl how you ended up you sending out a lot of cold emails now. That's how i kind of do that's show ms cold intimacies cold emails. You got me in person which was awesome but for most people especially before like summer league. I never the option of doing. This was always cold messages. How did you do that in like how did this. How one of them finally workout. So besides kind of the contacts that like my dad was able to give me arstan like this is kind of a trick that i tell anyone who's like. Oh how are you reaching out to all these people if you just kinda do research online like you can find a lot of emails and once you find those emails kind of build out your email contact list and or even if you like no one email from one team like then you have like the at whatever or secret shooting all the secrets then like like the i like. Maybe it's the first letter of their first name in their last name than the at bulls dot com or something like that..

"And i it just felt like with an ally stuff was really starting to change for him I think if you're getting that version of and it's less about the scoring for me like even it doesn't have to score twenty three points per game for me like that's if you do awesome just playing that level of defense like totally changes things for me because like you mentioned going from having like last your aunt liability on defense that for for stretches of the season And it was hard with with the way that the ross was constructed If you're getting even just like an average defensive wing at six six who's like creating stuff off the ball and and engaged like that completely changes the projector Trajectory from for of them for me. Because think you can say yes like the ski might be a little funky and cats not the greatest defender ever and delos pretty an end to too bad but like you look at the the rest of the rosser and if it's not liability and you have those guys on court like i can feel fine about the being average on defense and with how good i feel about what this offense could be this year like i think that is a big boon in like i i kind of. I'm working on a season preview for the entire league. And i started writing my minnesota section the other day bank on them being a playoff team but like i also think that that is kind of doing this you. I think they can be a playoff team If they start to have some of these things play out the way that it looks like they might I definitely feel optimistic about and like you said about aunt lake realistically he could pass. Who is by the end of the year this year. I think he's already there. He's quoting he's i think he's already better. I think the way that he draws defenders just tells me that he gets. He's just a better player like offensively than dancer. Russell is and obviously their skill sets on the same. So it's always find it hard to be like like if you came up to me like all right. Who's better like karl anthony towns or kyrie irving. I'm like i dunno. Depends on what your team needs. I guess but So they play like two different games..

"You know in the middle of the season And to go back really quick. I forgot to mention joel. Embiid joel embiid is like right there with cat and yogesh force but if i had if you had to ask right off the top yet or gas right off your head. What is the best. That a karl anthony towns minnesota Team his shot from three in terms of like ranking in the league as a whole team is probably like twani. Fourth nineteen nineteen is the closest light. Year was though i think it was two years ago again and yet like dario roco season. I think it was it was eighteen. Nineteen shot that well but then okay the next closest twenty and then you have twenty four twenty twenty nine. So it's like yet. They have not shot. Well from three hat was legitimately like kicking out to try beyond graham and josh for doing force base wing defender trevor younger graham. Yeah so it's it's been really bad And this team has shooters on it. Like diangelo russel to go down. The the positions the point guard. St low is a great shooter. Patrick beverley career. Like i think thirty nine percents shooter from deep jordan mclaughlin as their point guard which is like a steal in mybookie got. We got him on a steel of a contract. He's a solid three point shooter and then aunt's like percentage wise not great but he is like an okay shooter for sure in la taurean. Prince is really good jane. Mcdan- is a solid especially from the coroner's then cat read percentage. Wise probably isn't as good but nausori can shoot the ball to And supposedly jared. Vanderbilt's been getting up like five hundred. Three's a game or a practice per day deposi. it looks better. Dane moore tweeted something about not looking good and jury was not got some flack from some from some players. But i don't think i'm not gonna even count on like the development of guys getting better but i think there's just like actually some shooters on this team now which is something we haven't really had I just wish our shooters could play defense. But that's a topic for another time. You know definitely And like like you mentioned. I think this is the first time where we're going to see. I mean i've hoping more national headlines because that would mean the timber wolves are gonna be people are paying attention but I feel like this year. If we're seeing an uptick in any statistical category it's in cats assists because like this is the first time where i felt like. Wow okay Has somebody that consistently kick out through impasse. Doing just there are other. There's somebody else's grabbed the other than his own. Obviously not to take from like low but Granted like just looking at the role players on the seem like there are guys who you can count to actually play their role and do consistently. Because that's been the big problem. The last couple of years. I guess that's another good hinge point to damsel russell especially you know in talking about benson trades and whatnot I we can talk about benson's of gangs don't feel like now but i feel like i've talked about. Ben simmons like seventeen times this past nibble. Yeah with dio. Where are you at with him coming into the year because he's such a i don't wanna say divisive belykh obviously bag twitter like well. You know you can tween heavy like back. Stepped a seventeen footer. In it swishes. Okay cool but like there's a lot more to it than that. And i also think some people go way too far on delos well I don't think enough gets made out of how good of a playmaker deal is even if he is not a consistent rim pressure threat..

"From karl anthony towns asking out if this down this road And this is the year where that's kind of up in the air like I i don't think that that's in any intention or anything. But it cat is of course very committed to the wolves as right now in his been awesome and i think that's are launching point too because everything hinges around. What cat does this year There's a lot e even as good as he is there. Obviously you know steps you can take it. I think he's he's starting to take over the last year and a half. You really been paying attention. But i know not. Everyone has Attention to to a team as bad as the of band or literally has actually played in the last right off too but I mean yeah. everything's stems defense. We were talking about this the other day and i went back and i watched some of the stuff. I'm loving seacat playing closer to level the screen. I think we saw that for a short stint. When when tom sibito was coaching i made the robert covington trade or no wait was that that was saunders. Still my bad i. It's been so many coaches have changed. It's very hard to keep up with but We've seen it for small stretches and it's works. I think we're at the point where we know. Okay katyn and drop is not always great and part of that too is on the point of attack defense. But where are you out with the defensive changes so far. We're only one game in. But how are you feeling about roster construction-wise in the way that everything's everything's levin just conceptually in your head like going into it where you out with him. Yeah just been a big proponent of like cat camp keep playing the drop. It's not gonna work especially when you have no size next to him so it's been a welcome change for me and i know for a lot of wolves fans i kind of feel the same way..

Team USA goes down, So we got that going for us. Wait a minute. Isn't Kevin Durant on that team? The guy that carry the Brooklyn Nets on his back. Of course. Kevin Durant. Bradley Beal Bam out of bio. Draymond Green Game. Dollar is on their Jayson Tatum. They've got a pretty good lineup. So they lost to Nigeria. Wait a minute. There's some Nigerian players who are actually NBA players. Right there are and there are a few NBA players missing from that team that are still playing in the finals. No Djourou HOLIDAY. No Chris Middleton know Devin Booker. But the Nigerian squad does have three guys from the Miami Heat roster. Also one of the Sacramento Kings, a guy for the Minnesota Timberwolves and one of Donovan Mitchell's teammates with the Utah Jazz. Good for them. Congratulations, Nigeria. I think they taught a valuable lesson to our Guys on USA team that always thinks it's going to just steamroll everybody. I hope so. Because the last time the U. S, the U. S men's national team lost an exhibition game. They finished seventh in the feeble World Cup just a couple of years ago, so Hopefully they right the ship and we don't have one of those performances in the Olympics.

And i don't think he has any issues off the dribble He's he's a dog. I love how he gets after it. you know but one of the reasons why i wanna give minnesota at a is because of the practice jay mcdaniels You know he's he's exactly what i thought he was.

2021 Lottery NBA Mock Draft

"Tony. And i are going to do our first lottery. Mock draft of the year today. We're going to go back and forth. Selecting picks to put a draft order together. Midseason is really difficult. Especially if you've looked at the standings anytime lately and seen how bunch together so many of these teams are so i went to espn's basketball power index That list teams projected records to the season through a number of statistical factors. I think it's it's probably a better look. At where teams are going to be at the end of the season then necessarily their records right now and then based off of that we put together a draft order that obviously is going to change and obviously will be affected by the nba draft lottery where the top top three teams each have a fourteen percent chance of getting the top pick and so on as you know how the draft lottery works and so doing a mock draft. This time of season tough until really until the draft lotteries over. We don't really know the order but but we have some guesses now based off of where teams what teams have played. And what's going on right now and we're going to do our best to give you a are mock draft For the twenty twenty one season. First one we're just gonna cover the lottery and we're going to let tony how the first pick in the draft and based off of that. Espn bpi has the minnesota timberwolves projected to have the worst record in the league. Which is actually pretty good news for minnesota timberwolves fans because the timber wolves have to trade pick to the golden state warriors if this is pick four thirty and so the only way minnesota keeps this pick is if they fall into top three right now. If the season were tomorrow they'd have about a forty point. Seven percent chance of keeping this year's draft pick a falling the top three in the draft. So this is no guarantee from minnesota that they'll have the number one pick they all said the number one pick last year. Tony you're on the board. Who do you select if you're the timber. Wolves with the number one. Pick in the twenty twenty one nba draft. I select the I will not need three minutes to make the selection I'm selecting k. Cunningham six hundred seventy one hundred twenty point guard out of oklahoma state and so when you When you make your draft selections you do to you draft for two things you draft For value and you draft for need and this is both in pick antibi- you pick for for for the minnesota timberwolves number one. K cunningham is the best player draft You know. I think the gap is actually close Because you know. I think jonathan coachman gain in jalen green. You know both of those guys you look at them and they have some real special tools But that being said you know k. Cunningham is is still am. I is the most shore Most short superstar player in his draft. In and i think that's a compliment to how good distract is going to be especially in the top five But you know cunningham can score at all three levels. No he's sick. He's all seven all twenty. He's he's a natural point guard You know if you're minnesota you're trying to trace the ngelo russell Like as soon as possible In you know you put k. cunningham in the backcourt with anthony edwards who i think both of us can safely say it's better than we thought he would And i think that. That's obviously a backward for the future for the minnesota timberwolves in a really nice triumvirate with karl anthony towns so Definitely you know we all rights won't always talk about. We need some some of these number. One picks the go out east but you get the number one pick in another kind of generational prospect that comes to the western conference. I'm totaling till the agreement with you. Tony i think look. I don't think. I think there's five guys that can make a claim to the number one pick in this draft and so it's not like cunningham is a lock here but because of that i would put all of these players in the same tier and then when you look at what minnesota actually needs on their basketball team. Right now i think cunningham is just the right fit for this team as well and i i see him as a really nice compliment to karl anthony towns and to ant man right now and i think that this is this will be a huge boon for minnesota. If they get this pick and you know look everybody in minnesota has got gotta be crossing their fingers at this point Like you said if they fall out of the top three golden state gets this pick. And i think golden state already one that andrew wiggins dangelo russell trade as it is but if they end up getting you know the fourth or fifth pick in the draft does as as well. It's going to be an absolute massacre on that trade.

Wolves fire Saunders, hire Finch as new coach

"We've got a head coaching change in the nba. The timber wolves have fired head coach. Saunders but i. I had a game to play brian. Sanders was coaching against the guy. He replaced tom sibito of the new york knicks. Having a great season there is game. Went down to the wire. Karl anthony towns had shot in the post to try and take the lead with thirty seconds left over his former teammate. Taj gibson but it rimmed out on a rim in madison square garden. Where the ball. Just capterra women out on sunday and that was ryan saunders. Final quarter as head. Coach of the minnesota timberwolves took over for his late father. Flip saunders in twenty nineteen thirty four year old had a string of injuries to deal with and played many many close games and the timber wolves already have saunders replacement chris finch who was a raptors assistant coach. This season has been given a multi year deal by the minnesota timberwolves to coach them full time. It's a rare move to pluck an assistant from another team. Mid season to take over job just doesn't happen very often. Usually the team that fires a head coach just moves their assistant over for a while at the very least when the full job search can be done until the full job search can be done in the off season but they had been looking at chris finch for a long time in fact he interviewed in twenty nineteen when ryan saunders was eventually given the job and finch like his good friend raptors head coach. Nick nurse coached abroad for a longtime uk. Germany and belgium then moved to the g. league and then was assistant in the nba for a decade. And he's an offensive specialist who worked with james harden in zion. Now he'll have the chance to work with karl. Anthony towns anthony edwards.

Are Donovan Mitchell and the Jazz True Contenders?

"So tony. Let's start this story during last year's playoffs done mitchell and jamal murray have this epic battle in the nba. Bubble shot clock down to four. Mitchell has millsaps. Automobile three took three and returns the staredown ton of matchel clutch. Three pointer for the jazz. Eventually mitchell jazz fall in dramatic fashion a game. Seven two seconds ago for the winter. Tell us about donovan. Mitchell after that loss of known donovan. Pretty well in the four years. He's been with the johnson. I don't think i've seen him data emotional in the post game. There's so many things. I just feel like we could did and we didn't and i think that's just where the hurt really comes because quite frankly i don't i give them credit but i feel like we kind of eased off the gas. You have to remember the jazz at a be in the second half of game five which was supposed to be oppose out game for them to do more and this won't happen again is extremely down and he just basically said. We're not losing in the first round of the playoffs anymore. This ain't the end. This ain't this is just the beginning man. This is just the just the beginning. And i'm ready to go. Who begin right now and so once. The cameras were gone and donovan. Mitchell was back home in utah. How how did he spend. This off. season is funny. Because i talked to somebody close to donovan mitchell about this a couple of weeks ago and one thing he said was donovan was on the phone with people like literally. You know two or three days after the season Sam less workout. You know the thing about donovan. He's a guy that goes out and he works on his craft resolutely. And you know. I think that not only. Did he work on his craft during the offseason but after that the rest of the jazz from person one person fifteen worked on their craft under all season as well. Well let's bring it forward to this year. How did mitchell in the jazz start off. The current season they started off on four and with two really bad losses unforced turnover passing out an equal. Don't runaway league beasley. They lost the minnesota timberwolves at home. In the second game of the season they will blown out and outclassed in brooklyn nets team did james harden because they hadn't traded for them and they didn't have durant is everywhere. Count it at one but rudy rudy. Did show back up on the screen and brooklyn's play it with alan at the energy so basically re irving at a bunch of role players that blasted the jazz in new york. You know jazz nation on the fan base was kind of going crazy. The jazz a couple of games where they look like world-beater. They had a couple of games where they look really back. And tony. I wanted to ask you about this moment. That happened on live television a few weeks ago. That was really widely discussed. It started at halftime of jazz. Pelicans game when the tnt broadcast crew was discussing the game. My question to the panel. Donovan mitchell is that the point of superstardom where he can take you there. Or he's still all star status. He needs to be so go. Third option really. Yes yeah i feel like it. No talent to do it. He's a great score. Grew there but if he's not score. What else can you do. And when the game ended shack starts interviewing donovan mitchell. Who's still on the court right after the jazz victory. Yeah and he says. I said tonight. That you are one of my favorite players. But you don't have what it takes to get to the next level as central purpose on wednesday to hear what you have to say about that. I that's it i mean. What were your thoughts when you first saw that exchange so the irony of the whole thing is that the actual conversation was fair. That part of the conversation that happened at halftime that part was fair. We know the donovan. Vigil is a dynamic offensive player. We know that he is a star. We know that he is an all star. Caliber guy for him to be a superstar. He has to round out his game and do everything he's got to defend. He's got a rebound. These got make plays for others. What wasn't fair is shaquille. O'neal saying hey. I don't think that you have what it takes to get to the next level as a player. And i just wanted you to hear that. What's your reaction. And i felt bad for about donovan. Because he was really dominant in that went over to pelicans he didn't deserve to be blindsided like up on live television and frankly he handled it as about as well as you handle something like that. My rookie year norms gonna get better mood. I do wonder cuba. The look on his face. Kind of indicated that he wasn't happy you know about the question but at the same time he's always been a person that knows how to express himself. I think he's a guy that's kinda. Learn how to lockout the proverbial outside noise and kind of focus on what he has to do and i think a desk one of the reasons why he's improved so much as a player.

"minnesota timberwolves" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader

"Convince Quinn in for J. R and you can always hit me up on Twitter. It's Vince Quinn. Um, let's talk about Really fascinating quote from Ricky Rubio here. And man. I mean, this is okay. So here's the deal. I mean, let me set the scene if you will, so Minnesota Timberwolves. No, not exactly the most ex inspiring, exciting team. To into right now. So okay. They beat the Pistons. Not very good. They beat the Jazz, okay? Then they played the Lakers. And their world ended. They got absolutely crushed by the Lakers. Then they played the Clippers and after losing 1 27 to 91 to the Lakers, they lose by an impressive 1 24 2 on Lee Won. Ho won. Against the Clippers. So improvement now, Ricky Rubio after those couple of games Well, he talked about the problems with the Timberwolves. We gotta learn. Uh, Concluded. A lot of kids were young, blah, blah, blah, decent dad. But once you step on the court and the plane for NBA team one on the last two games between we did close back. I'm there is no other wars supported on. Uh, we've got to get better. I think we didn't learn nothing from the game against Lakers. We came Tonight with the same mindset off. Just go up there and group. I don't know if he's because there is no pants because the situation we believe right now, but I can continue. We've gotta do something about it. I mean, that's pretty damning stuff, so couple of things there one The idea of fans and accountability. That's a big one. Because, yeah, if you're an NBA team You could take nights off. It happens. Think of Here's an interesting one last year at home. The Sixers were one of the best teams in the NBA amazing record at home. Unbelievable. They were God awful on the road. Maybe it's accountability. Maybe it's the idea of your home. Fans aren't in the road stadium, so you go out. Well, we'll take this night off its Atlanta, which is last year's Atlanta, not this year's Atlanta, which is kind of fun. So it's Atlanta last year. Like who cares? We'll just take the night off. If maybe we win. Maybe we don't. But who cares? So is the lack of fans in the building. How much does that affect accountability? How much does that change Things? Are we taking that for granted? Because I figured these guys would just play basically the same. You would expect a little more juice in it by having fans in big moments. That crowd cheer that kind of thing. But To not plays hard. And do that because you don't have fans to hold you accountable in person is an interesting thing, and we see that kind of stuff play out all the time. Right. That happens. Constantly. Think of somebody might see in person versus what you might see from that person on social media. When you don't have that direct in person accountability, things get a little bit different. So Maybe That's the case. Maybe we see that more in the MBA. Maybe we've seen that in the NFL in the MLB in this past season, and we just didn't realize it. But for him, the mentioned fans like that I was like, Oh, I hadn't thought about that. But maybe people have played sloppily because of that, So that's one interesting point from Ricky Rubio. But Here's The other thing, too is and this comes up from time to time, but it needs to be said. I'm thinking about Anthony Edwards here. Because you have a young guy in a franchise that really hasn't been very good, so for him to go to that team as the number one pick with all of the expectations that are on him. As a number one pick. You want to have a good culture to develop the guy you want to have opportunities for him to be the best player he could be. I mean, think about with the Timberwolves, one of the problems they had as they look to Karl Anthony towns and they looked at Wiggins and they said, We need to change something here. We need to toughen these guys up a little bit. Let's go get Jimmy Butler. Right. They wanted to alter the way the franchise was going to wanted to inject some attitude into their pillars of the franchise, and they add Jimmy Butler, and he's being them with third stringers in practice and begging to get out of town, so it didn't work. But they tried. And now Jimmy Butler's with the heat. Everything's worked out there, but This is the Timberwolves team that we're talking about. Now, Anthony Edwards is there and are they going to figure this thing out for that? You gotta have a good organization and having a rocky start like this for a team that generally has not been that good. Not a good place for Anthony Edwards. So sometimes it's not always the player. But it's the situation that they're in now. The other thing flip side of the coin. My God. I saw highlight yesterday of James Wiseman. He he blocks the shot. He gets up. Swats the shot. His teammate grabs it. He starts going down the floor. Wiseman is breaking down the floor over 7 ft. Tall. He's making a break. They give him the ball. He dribbles across the court coast to coast. James Wiseman. He gets the ball. He rips it up over a defender goes to the hoop dunks at home. It was like, Oh, my God, and you think about him as a number two pick. Going to the Warriors. And where would you rather be? You know, Would you rather be a number one pick in Minnesota or a number two pick in Golden State? Because you look at the cultures. You look at the backgrounds. You look at the track record..

"And that's just talk about a drop off. He rookie year to bench player on the Pacers. Anyways, not pay in general. But then the final game of the night. We have the seventy Sixers birches the Minnesota Timberwolves Jimmy Butler against his former team and seventy Sixers show why they are one of the best teams in the east as they handled. They destroyed they thinking of other answered other adjective here to the Minnesota Timberwolves one forty nine one. Oh, seven and m bead kind of and bead. We'll see Lou NBA stats. I where we talk about what he did after there's maybe thirty one points and thirteen rebounds, absolute great performance. Ben Simmons another good for. I am twenty points eleven rebounds Jimmy Butler against his former team nineteen point three rounds. Forces pretty decent night for him Benson's almost had trouble dealt with nine assists. So close from that triple-double himself, but Embiid after the game kind of tweeted something that was what we kids. Call a troll to the Minnesota Timberwolves as he was saying that he was honored to be part of a third string parts part of the third stringers and get a win against real MBA starters. Hashtag the process. Embiid is like people, call them the troll king really hard tonight that. Because he's really good at trolling. You should be on. Our Brady's troll. And so hard get it for the laughter. Okay. We're good anyways. Probably the laughter. But anyways. Looking into the seventy Sixers season really looking great overall, just either. Therefore, they're only fourth in the east between nine sixteen really speaks for itself. Pacers. Or twenty nine wins won't walkie with thirty one in Toronto with thirty three and the to the best records in the NBA are Eastern Conference teams with the bucks in Rogers both over thirty and golden stay in the first place is thirty wins in the west people say the west is better than these. I agree. This is just a tough conference. And that's why they have a little more wins than the others do in the west. Because of the fact they kind of play more Eastern Conference teams. I mean, you look right underneath the the team the team with the above fight last team above five hundred in the east is the Boston Celtics in the fifth seed with twenty five eighteen and they've lost three straight. The other seeded team six team after the Celtics are the heat at five hundred than the nets game under five hundred and the Hornets three games under five hundred so really shows the differences in strength of schedule when you look at the Eastern Conference versus the Western Conference. But again, not saying anything from this. Any Sixers still a great team MP's on rampage Jimmy boys playing pretty well. Ben Simmons turn a light it up teams looking good. And honestly, it's ion see there's a lot of opportunities to these teams to make it to the commerce trials. I know I said the bucks, I've the bucks going to the conference finals, and I still Sam by that. But it would not surprise me the Pacers in the finals the Sixers in the finals of obviously, not the raptors. But the top four teams in the NBA each one of them geared the finals. Sixers Pacers bucks. Raptors I totally see it happening. And we're gonna take a break down. I think that's all about having about yesterday when we get back.

"Moment for the Minnesota Timberwolves after what has been a very messy and frustrating first half of the season. And we'll get to that coming up. I don't know if it continues, maybe at some point the novelty wears off, but it is worth talking about on this edition of hump show after hours with Amy Lawrence CBS sports radio from inside the Quicken Loans studios national mortgage lender, Quicken Loans apply simply understand fully mortgage confidently, by the way. I am pleasantly surprised at the number of pork rinds tweets and Facebook posts that I am seeing over the past week. I'm even getting texts from friends about pork rinds why? Well, because southern recipe, pork rinds. Who also as an organization work with former NFL players, and I mean, the vets the throwbacks. Billy white shoes. Johnson who was a guest with us on radio row in Minneapolis a year ago during Super Bowl week. Mike Ditka is another name that works with southern recipe, pork rinds, and what they attempt to do is raise money to help with. Health benefits and health care all the things that. The the the older older players the older generations of the NFL. We're not guaranteed in their contracts. They don't have access to nearly the benefits that what today's player has access to. And there are a lot of them. That are struggling they didn't have the same rules that were designed to protect players specifically from head injuries. And obviously they didn't make the kind of money that today's players make either. And so it's not only the pork rind. I'm promoting though. That's what the commercials are all about and many of you heard them they'd aired during the playoffs so far NFL as well. As from what I'm told during the broadcast of the college football national championship game, which is cool. So I am I'm happy that you've heard them. But mostly I'm happy to partner with southern recipe pork rinds for what I believe is a really worthy cause. And we always have Mark singleton on the show. He's the head of the whole thing. And we've developed a nice relationship. And and they appreciate the fact that I I mean, and so they asked me to do some commercials for them. So yes, the female voice that you hear in fact is me and so over divisional weekend, if you happen to hear the commercials for pork rinds, you just let me know on Twitter a law radio if you've got questions, we're asking me anything we'll send those to our show Twitter after our CBS as well as our Facebook page. I feel like the the rules for ask me anything are are pretty well in place. Now, though still we get the oddest questions every week. Not the ones that Chris Ashley asks because he's he's got guidelines as well. Just do some of your questions are are a little creepy. I would I'd have to admit. But again, those we don't a lot of them get leader. But those we don't answer. So don't waste your question. It's coming up in thirty minutes here on CBS sports radio. Our phone number's eight five five two one two four two two seven that's eight five five two one two four CBS again. We'll get to the NBA story lines. But I promise this last hour. So I want to pay off the ratings for wild card weekend in the NFL up up up up. So the Saturday afternoon, we'll do these game by game window by window. The Saturday afternoon game which was the colts over the Texans was up three percent over titans and cheese from a season ago. Okay. So they're kind of comparing year to year. Now that's interesting to me because the titans hadn't been in the playoffs in in a while. I can't remember exactly what it was. But they had a twenty point comeback against the chiefs in that same window a year ago. So that game which I think you could say is probably the least scintillating of the four right? I mean, it it was great to watch Andrew luck. I was thrilled for Frank Reich and the colts, and they were masterful. But there wasn't a lot of drama in that once but especially not in the second half. But that one was still up three percent from last year. The Seattle Dallas wildcard matchup. How about this? You wanna talk about skyrocketing up twenty nine percent from that same window a year ago, which was Panthers saints. Over thirty million viewers tuned in for Cowboys hosting the Seahawks and the most streamed NFL playoff game ever on FOX digital. Oh my gosh. So up twenty nine percent with a a massive audience online as well. And so just those two games alone. Huge. Now when it comes to the Sunday games. I don't know if you saw this. But the eagles victory over the Cowboys. Was not just from a year ago. But because it was good all the way to the end. It was the best show on any network of any type any genre. Since last year Super Bowl take that for data. How about that the best ratings more viewers than any other show on TV anywhere since last year Super Bowl? Now, it started a little bit later than what the that window does in the regular season. And it ended in primetime so early prime time and it led right up to the start of the Golden Globes. So you had a lot of that happening as well. But it also went down to the wire the game wasn't settled. Until Cody parkey missed the field goal until. Trayvon Hester got a fingertip on it changed into a block, which I find amusing anyway, good for Hester. But the game was still hanging in the balance in the final ten seconds. But yes, best ratings of any show on any network of any type since Super Bowl fifty two in February and the best ratings for NBC since Bill Clinton was president. It's been a while a lot of you weren't that are listening warning even alive when Bill Clinton was president. In fact, some of the players might not have been oh that now. Well, the ninety s. It just depends wait so Lamar Jackson. He's twenty two. Now. I mean think about it. Lamar Jackson just turned twenty two on Monday. And so you're talking about going back to the days. I'm gonna get I want to get his exact birthday. Yeah. Nineteen ninety-seven. So you're talking about going back to the days before Lamar Jackson was born now grades that. He's the youngest quarterback ever to start a playoff game. But these ratings the point is these ratings are bouncing back in a major way. And having the bears involved is a huge reason why that's one of the top media markets in the country. If the one of the oldest franchises in football. And it's one of the most storied hallowed ground at Soldier Field. Plus the eagles have a huge fan base there defending Super Bowl champs. And there's the Nick foles quota or quotient factor. You get what I'm saying? It's hump show. Cut me some slack. So. Yeah. Best show on any network of any type since the Super Bowl and better ratings for NBC. On a wild card weekend since Bill Clinton was president. Whoa. I mean, it's amazing the way that the NFL has rebounded in two thousand eighteen and now into two thousand nineteen but it's not just it wasn't just a one or two week thing. This is a trend that is continuing now into the postseason overall. That is includes chargers ravens overall. The wild card round was up. Ten percent across the board in viewership numbers and the games last year had some great storylines. I mean think about it. You had the titans in twenty point comeback. You had the bills in the playoffs for the first time this century. There were some interesting. There were some interesting stories the same as what we're getting this year. But this trend is more than that about just the story lines. And I expect the numbers to to be up even higher for the weekend. But a ten percent increase across the board for the wild card games. Comparing this time last year. It's after hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS sports radio eight five five two one two four two two seven. I appreciate that. You want to weigh in? Let's see what I wanted to here. Oh, you know, what I wanted to do actually. And I will I will destroy the sand. It's not like a cute, segway or anything, but I'd been meaning to do this going back to Saturdays. We're talking about wild card weekend the Allen Hearns injury, which was so devastating at the very beginning of the Cowboys Seahawks game. I wanted to mention that he did have successful surgery. According to his medical team. He's now on injured reserve officially not that we thought he was going to play again. But that moment to start the hawks Cowboys. It was so early in the game. And it was essentially slamming on the brakes of all the emotions inside AT and T stadium and conjuring up the complete opposite emotions, and as you remember if you're watching the game, you remember that pretty much every player from each team that was on the field at the time went over to Allen her as he was on the stretcher, and he's got tears running down his face. So he's laying back. They've got them stabilized on the stretcher they're going to cart him out of the stadium. And you can see in the light that he that. His cheeks are tearstained. I mean, it was just such a gruesome broken ankle. And you have this this whole emotional theme with all of these players coming up to give him a fist-bump or to grasp his hand. I think the part that really got me not just seeing him writhing in pain that was awful. And whether you wash it live or saw the replay. I think the broadcast this was FOX, right? Yeah. The broadcast on FOX. I don't think they saw how bad it was originally. Because when they went back to it as they're going to a commercial break for an injury out. You hear Joe buck react like, whoa. Whoa. And so I'm not sure anybody realized how bad it was. Because you didn't have the right camera angle initially. But then to go back and see it in slow motion. And to see it up close. Gosh, your heart breaks for him. And he was in so much pain, but he did have surgery, and according to the doctors it was successful. So that's good news. I just wanted to pass that along. But yeah, I mean a lot of the players were still talking about it after the game was over as much transpired from the from that point in the first quarter through the end of the game and a close finish the Dak Prescott. Touchdown drive and everything else. But to see a guy go down and pain like that into know that you're only one step away or one hit away from that happening to you. It's very jarring. But also to see a teammate that you light up with being such a vulnerable position and in so much pain. I mean, it just it it gets it punches you in the gut, but he is doing better. That's according to doctors. Let's hope he makes a full recovery and is able to play football again. It's after hours here on CBS sports radio coming up. A finally a reason to smile for the Minnesota Timberwolves and more of your calls. What's your reaction to the head coaching Domino's that have dropped to this point? And don't forget to get your questions in for ask. Amy anything this hour. It comes up. So on.

"minnesota timberwolves" Discussed on GSMC Basketball Podcast

"Welcome back to the GMC basketball podcast now. Talked about Tom tibial being fired. And where the Minnesota Timberwolves will go from here. I think we should flip the script a little bit. We should talk about a team right now that we were worried about earlier in the year on this very podcast. We talked about this team. Struggling they had a big change in their lineup before the season started. But now Jeff this team is on a five game winning streak the longest winning streak in the NBA. There on fire in this team is who. I don't know the San Antonio Spurs. Right. I was just leading into that. That was like for the plenty of funds these five game winning streak last night on the road at Detroit along of any team. But just longest right now longest right now the current longest winning streak they win at Detroit last night. One nineteen. Two one of seven. Again, five in a row twelve point win on the road. This team is on fire will Marcus Aldridge twenty five points on twelve shots Stein. Twenty minutes. That's a fishy would like to see demar derozan has continued his form twenty six points on twenty one shot, seven boards, nine assists. Just getting it done and all aspects. We know we had that triple double against the raptors. And he's continued his play since then. Yes. Since the infamous returns night. Yeah. True. Now. That was his statement game, though them we had a podcast was was that the day of the game. It was before the game have known. We had after the game. Did we? Yeah. I can't remember. Well, oh, we we're Sparkasse. We you right. Because there's a or Friday night that they believe it was a Thursday night. Yeah. You're right. So yeah, Kawais we talked about on Friday sports podcast. I yeah. We do a lot of podcast we will. So it's really hard to keep track of everything. So I have to ask you. The Spurs started off tough to start to their season. Over the last few weeks. Now they've lowered their points per game against it's now at one eight. The seem to be scoring more giving up less eight and two in their last ten there on a five game winning streak. The current Spurs right now are twenty four and seventeen there in the six spot. They're actually three games back of first place. They're also three games away from being out of the playoffs. But is this. I team. The team that we expect them to be for the rest of the season. Or are they just a little bit? I don't know on fire right now, and they'll come back to earth. Maybe a fringe playoff team. I will disperse never been the brief spark team when they're consisting they're consistent regardless playing and with this. I do say that maybe with damore Dros in this team can make a run. Ars complaining mazing, they're seventeen and five at home, which is really good. They're seven and twelve on the road. Now, demar derozan. Wasn't the guy in Toronto. Call it was Lowry murderers in the San Antonio, you don't think here's a guy sent or in Toronto. I think Lowery was a head of. I think fans believe that too. Yeah. They were basically if you watch the game zones thing on Bleacher report. I mean, they were they were you know, they were. Yeah. But but if you had to put one higher than the other it was Lowry heights eight I thought tomorrow, tomorrow's veterans kind of proven since he left. But I think Lowry was just he was wasn't either. I. Or they say I want to say that Derosier. I. It's a gray area. Yeah. So anyways, you expect this I make the playoffs. Yes. Yeah. Those seed, but yes. So there are six seater. Now, would you be surprised if they got higher than that? No, I can I can seem to four five no higher than four. But four is still good ahead of them right now Houston in the clippers. So yeah, could go they could go higher. They're actually tied with both of those teams in terms of record at this time. A little bit Lou percentage because games don't match, but in terms of games back there, even so they could be in fourth place for the end of this week possibly all right? Let's shift gears..

"But I don't put her had been hurt for a he's coming back right around when John wall's helps them a lot of to not disputing Mike point at all. He's not a go carry team. But he helps them he's garbage guy at twenty last night. He could hit three point about the playoffs there. Eight under five they're eight under five hundred sixteen in twenty four at almost halfway point. So Faye played five hundred from here on out, which would be an accomplishment. I think but I'm talking about a team that is then someone helped me with the math like thirty seven in the playoffs. Over five hundred even. Staying with the NBA Minnesota Timberwolves fed move had enough. This is true. Because will is here. Yes. And we'll on his personal friends and thinks that Tom Thebault is a fine coach based on merit that he saw in Chicago. And in Minnesota, we talked about this on PTI today. I yield to Mike I cannot understand why you fire. This owner is a guy that I would wear a clown mask into his office. If I was going in just a taunt him. Don't you? Here's a guy who he hires dividend. And you have to know what you're getting Tom tittle? You're getting a guy who if you call him in say, I'm not coming to see you today. I got practice. You're a suit shut up. Okay. I mean, this isn't it isn't even personal because they don't come and have dinner with you. I mean, he is who is this guy leads a team that had not been to the playoffs in thirteen year. He has a third at the all-star break. Jimmy Butler has to go out with a think une- he has to go out in the last thirteen games. It goes something like four nine. But okay, they get in the playoffs. They give Houston hill. They win game three. They couldn't get game for to even the series. But you've got to feel pretty good about this. And then, you know, Jimmy Butler is a tough guy Jimmy Butler and Tibbs are all schooled Charles Oakley Huby Brown. They're tough men and Jimmy Butler. Didn't like what he saw with Karl Anthony towns. Wiggins and he called him out in. The days that you and I were in locker rooms, and you said, okay, you called him out. Good now. Everybody was there aged and their own coll- Kawai, Leonard Donka, girlfriends. All of the above. They run to them and say, well, you should leave. You should force a trade and he did any did now. Well, no, he didn't. Well, he he he fours. The trade trade 'em. I keep you right here. You can buck in take aid. But they own up Jin to Karl Anthony towns and weekends. If you want we're gonna play the season out, but the owners have guy who and now he wants Fred Hoiberg. Dow didn't you just watch a franchise go from tips to Fred Hoiberg and went down workout down the drain and by the way, it's..

"minnesota timberwolves" Discussed on The HoopsHype Podcast With Alex Kennedy

"Welcome to the hoop site podcast. My name is Alex Kennedy. And joining me today. Good friend of mine. He's been on the podcast before mock Hamilton do a man I'm doing all right? Allie. Alex, it's been a while. And a man just make sure you let everybody know that when you say good friend, like, we're we're we're like real friends. This guy. You just have your go. You my good friend. Join me like we actually room together during the NBA finals. That's how close we are. We go way back. So we worked together at basketball insiders people who don't know. And then you know, he actually joined me. So we started the NBA wire over here under USA today sports media group, and was one of the first people, I hire he's been crushing it over. There were the with the different NBA wire sites. Now, he writes at the athletic as well. But yeah, we work together. We said we ruined together during the finals, we covered a black events. Together. We go way back, and I knew you Alex since dude start you're like a fourteen year old kid like right again your mom's basement. You know what I'm saying? So we realize. For real real. And yeah, I appreciate you doing this to. So this kind of came together last minute and Moke is a great friend. I call him he'd econ I was trying to schedule a podcast tomorrow on Monday where record this on Sunday night. And I told him away I'm in today. And then within one hour the guy gets on hit grabs his microphone gets ready to go. So that's a real friend. Do you not? We don't just go way. Back your real friends. I appreciate that. I appreciate that too, bro. We have some breaking news, right? As you were getting ready to record this as I said Sunday night Tomko was fired by the Minnesota Timberwolves Adri will announce the and you know, a bunch of other reporters put it out there. So we wanted to kind of break that down, and we're also going to get into some other stuff. We're gonna talk about the first all-star returns. And then Moke is based out of New York. So we're gonna talk about the nets recent strong play and some other stuff there the Knicks, and you know, there rebuild so we'll get into that too. But we want to start with this tip story. Just so you guys know Scott late in will remain the GM and Ryan. Saunders. The flip Saunders. Son is the interim head coach some names have been mentioned already Monty Williams who's currently at assistant in Philadelphia. He had actually been linked to the job previously. Fred Hoiberg who played Minnesota and worked in their front office as vice president of basketball operations. Those are two of the names that have been mentioned in the coaching search so far, but I think the situation, and we want to kind of get into what happened in Minnesota with Tibbs in kind of what went wrong Minnesota is currently nineteen twenty one which puts them a eleven in the Western Conference. They've lost nine of their last fifteen games. They have been struggling recently. There was some talk locally about him being on the hot seat in actually in recent weeks, you know, Mark Stein. And some others had mentioned that he was on the hot seat net. Fred Hoiberg could be an option. So this isn't really new. But today, we actually have the news that he's fired. And I think with Jimmy Butler stuff started going down. You know, there was a lot of talk about their reading is of in the locker room between Tibbs guys, and those were mainly, you know, the veteran. Wins the guys that he had previously co Chicago. And then the young guys now with you know, the team struggling Butler gone. It's pretty clear the wolves aren't going to win a championship with this group. So I think they're prioritizing their young guys want to kind of pump the brakes a little bit and not necessarily focused on win now stuff. And that's not tips as style Tibbs wants to play these guys thirty six minutes at night, and you know, not developed guys and east Boca's on winning right away. So I think it's just a a style difference. And I think that's why we're seeing this move. Now, yet, I think the main thing about it to Alex was, you know, it's like at the end of the day as as an owner, you know, and as a front office executive in the NBA, you know, stability, and what things look like from the outside is so so important, and I think.

"On ESPN radio ESPN app and Sirius XM channel eighty while. We stick in the NBA here today. The first returns from NBA all star voting were released LeBron James and Janas onto Takubo lead their respective conferences as the fan voting returns come in. And that's fifty percent of the vote deciding the starters for the all star game that'll be in Charlotte this year, some interesting people headlining some of this field, some of them, of course, James onto combo have Durant. Luca Danni, rich. Anthony Davis, Paul George all of those names. We shouldn't be surprised to hear our in. The top of the voting but one surprise the Minnesota Timberwolves Derrick rose second only to Stephan curry among west guards with about one hundred thousand fewer votes than him. He is well past James harden, and Russell Westbrook is far as west guards. Go to what do you? What do you? I guess points. It'd be this do. Yeah. Thank you. That's the word. I'm looking for a trip Algiere Giro's things. It's miss Daljit. Right. I mean, Derrick rose the youngest MVP ever when he won the award with his hometown. Chicago Bulls, and Sarah while there have been some misgivings along the way for Derrick rose from a pure basketball standpoint, this is being viewed as a comeback, right? It's a comeback story. A player who was traded multiple times has a roundabout two year. Three year stretch goes to Cleveland, Utah ends up back in Minnesota. It has been a story of redemption for Derrick rose right now. And I think fans are latching onto that and the impact of that and voting in droves heck, not droves hundreds of thousands of oats. What they really are doing. It's I guess it's surprising. But I think it speaks to the loyalty the NBA fans have and just the magnitude of stardom in the NBA. They think it's different than any other sport in the in the world. Yeah. And you mentioned that there's been some hiccups along the way, and certainly there's. Aspects of the trial for dare grows despite the charges eventually being dropped that came out that were problematic and troubling to hear some of what he said in his testimonies there. But I think for a lot of people that has sort of fallen by the wayside, and they're focused more on a couple of really big games this year. And I think you're right. It's about feeling like they there was so much sympathy and empathy for this guy to go from MVP level to have these crippling injury after injury and want to work his way back. And so I think that's clearly what's driving this vote..
