"What's your what's your next lesson. All right my next lesson in in a lot of people are going to want to hear this man. But this is just how i feel. Zion williamson has demonstrated that he's a lot closer to luca than he is the rest of the young rising star up and coming guys on meaning he is going to be an mvp shoulder the burden type of player. You just put me on the court. Our offense is going to generate quality. Looks no matter what type of player if physically. I think he's gonna right now obviously. He's nobody's bill russell. That shirt but i think physically gets his wind. He's going to become more than capable as a defender and again. I'm talking about guys like traits l. John morand jason tatum. I'm talking about all right like these guys are great. Nba players zionist. Showed you especially in the past few weeks where standards has been like. Why am i gonna make this guy center. When he's just shack on the perimeter right like why don't you just put the ball in this man's hand and allow him to flashes actual play making ability flashes decision making skills like and still be physically just overpower right. And i think zaylon is a lot closer to the local level. Then he is the rest of the young guys whether d his own teammate. And like i said tatum trade ceo. John morand saw any of those younger cats bam of bio these rising stars. Zion is just season another class to me. It's good that you did this. After the sixers thing because i think there is a burgeoning. Bi zaylon like discussion about whether those guys fit. But i think in much the same way. Yeah they fit you just have to surround them with the right guy is like that was the sixers conversation. i think that there's some decent pieces around those dudes. I've been really impressed with lonzo this season. I'm curious what you think that the pelicans needs to start doing personnel wise. And whether it's something that's like a change for right now or a change. That's going to work. Maybe two seasons down the line. I mean the obvious answer is spacing is shooting I don't like to me. I don't understand why you go out of your way to get stephen adams in there. When people like mouse on the on the board to this summer i just i love grits. I would love to have a conversation with him in understanding thinking of putting this guy who only lives in the paint next to williamson. We're that's where he's optimally used is attacking matt area of the court. I'll never understand. I think they just got to put shooting around them. Do i mean is that just a culture. A locker room thing like you get adams in and adams is just like every night we we go. We do battle. And i'm going to show you how like. Maybe that's an easy read. I have no idea. But it's like with jay adams and those guys like that really sure what they're doing for you. I don't know. I struggled to understand the moves myself. And you know the idea that you will play a front court of atoms. Vi zion is just anathema to nba basketball. As it's played right now you know. I don't know if they thought maybe we had the goes to defense. Or i'm not sure what the thinking was. But i think that's a sub optimal usage of your resources when it comes to surrounding. You're too young guys who were supposed to be. You know the most important people in the franchise right on. Maybe a short term thing. Maybe it's like whatever developing zionist certain type of way and went zion. Learns how to play in constricted court. He's gonna be unstoppable when he finally gets more space court. Who knows but yeah. I would like to see them up the mazda lineups zion more because as you seen this guy gets the ball going downhill. It's your toast you told. I'm getting to my left hand. Every time i'm once i get my shoulder even half an inch pashtu. You're you're you're done. You can't do anything with me and if you try to help i'm more than willing passer. I guys just remarkable for his young age and he didn't even have a rookie season. You know he got hurt. Then the season got killed. Then he restriction. Yeah yeah it's like aba rookie season and look what he's already doing. This guy is scott limited. His kid My next lesson is that it turns out. Tanking is an art. I've been fascinated by some of the worst teams in the league this year. I think some some of this beyond anyone's control like the way minnesota has slid off cliff is like almost like an early cure song in like how depressing it is but like i do remember like when tanking obviously got popularized with the sixers it was agonizing like i can't i can't say like i watched a lot of those early bad thirteen fifteen wins sixers teams but there was definitely a feeling like it may or may not work but there is a plan like there is a plan and with the worst teams in the league. This year's whether it's a minnesota or increasingly cleveland or even sadly a sacramento who sort of have the roster that you tank four already and are in fact still bad. I just feel like there is a lack of long term thinking which is understandable job. Security is what it is and the nba and sometimes owners get a little bit impatient. Like seeing the lanta where they're obviously they. Have they have playoff dreams with with signing a bunch of veterans and. Now they're going to have nate mcmillan and coaches his team into probably a play in game if if he can but i. I do think that we've sort of seen how hard it is to. Actually pull off a tank and in places like cleveland in places like minnesota and places like sack and in places like atlanta. The mixed results can actually have like long term detrimental effects. If you don't pull it off if you don't lose with intent and then try to build the right way if you kind of have these false starts if you've gotta have you know going all in for de ngelo russell now being kind of up against it and having a group of young players who who are now on their second coach but like second front office administration with an ownership. That's uncertain in minnesota. It's just a really interesting situation. I wonder whether or not i wonder whether we'll ever see a full-scale tear down like we did in philly again because i don't know if people have the stomach for it. Yeah and i think the hardest part about the tank that you know the heiki files never one acknowledge and i think you know philly got kinda lucky in that. It was joel embiid. Who's kind of his. Makeup is a lot different than a lot of cats and it. And it wasn't andrew wiggins and karl anthony towns in the sense that you're the you're the person who tanked for so we're constantly padding on your as it telling you how great you are just. Because he said dad one time and the that that breeds. It's it's not conducive to when you want to turn the corner. Which is what. We're seeing in. Minnesota and i'm glad you said the word. It's an art form because it seemed that you didn't mention that that made me think of was detroit. They went out and they spent all this money on jerry grant to allow him to be you know kobe seeing and they spent all this money plumbly and all of us you know sort of pseudo sharp nba on lookers. Like what in the hell are the pistons doing. Can they were like you. Know what we are tanking but with bring equality players to and you know killian hayes. He's not going to be our savior when he comes in from day. One this is going to be guys on the roster who are clearly obviously better than and we're still not gonna win but he's still there's still going to be the sort of competitive idea to our makeup in our team. What we're doing here. Every day is not in service of losing. We're trying to win where we're gonna lose in the process right as so i. I think there is an art to how you sort of finesse and with numerous i like i think even in memphis who's like they never tanked. They might have had a season where they were like all right..

"It's so low, Spain, Spain and fits on ESPN Radio Sirius XM Channel 80 and the ESPN Apple presented by Progressive couldn't get into a little n ba talk here. I was excited to settle in to watch my bulls was that last night or the night before who can keep track time is a flat circle on the Raptor covert situation caught up to him yet again. The work. We're absolutely going to keep an eye on what's going on with the Raptor and that and I saw someone bring up a point very smartly and perhaps awkward for for those who have And consistently in defense of the NBA and how they run things is even the initial push back to playing without a bubble and the many co vid positives that have happened and suspended or postponed games. They still aren't getting the kind of criticism that the NFL or baseball Got in terms of demands to put the season on pause. And I don't know if it's just that they earned so much good will from the percent precision of the bubble season that people sort of are giving them a little bit of grace here, But it is strange to kind of look at how critical we were of other sports and they're handling and as games continue to be postponed, as as multiple players and coaches are out That same that same criticism doesn't seem to be there for the MBA. Do you think it's probably a double standard being applied? Because of how much respect there is for the relationship between the players and owners and on for out front for for, you know Adam silver as well. Let's get into the news of the day in the N B. A. And that is the firing of Hawks coach Lloyd Pierce. Not even quite halfway into a season. They've had injuries. They've had covert issues, Azaz everybody, but I think the expectation was that they were going to take a step forward, and it just didn't happen. 14 and 31st in the East Loss to Miami on Sunday night. It was their 11th loss with 1/4 quarter lead, and I guess they just decided to bring the hook. Nate McMillan assistant coach is gonna get a service the interim and I think this game is a pretty big surprise to people who thought Lloyd Pierce would get a little more time, especially because of how adored he is. For his work in the community is influence around the Hawks. This is but a dream. Well, Trotsky, ESPN NBA insider had to say about it on SportsCenter. Think there was a feeling in the organization that Lloyd Pierce's voice was not resonating the way they hoped it would in that locker room anymore. And so they decided here, just the head of an All Star game in Atlanta, which is certainly interesting timing when you're the host team, and it's and it's your showcase. They would like Nate McMillan to become the interim coach 16 years as a head coach in the MBA. He's on Lloyd Pierce's staff. I know he was meeting with Lloyd Pierce of the rest of the staff. To talk through it with Lloyd. He was very loyal, has been very loyal to Pierce on so in for Atlanta that maybe the short term move here, Nate McMillan in his interim coach, if he chooses to do it. Yeah. I mean, you get that extra time around that all star break for the for the new coach, the interim coach to take over for Macmillan to get his bearings. But to be fair, it is a bit disappointing. At least it's not a regular All Star year when you would be the host for your city and your team, But it is, I'm sure still a bummer..

"Like Pierce was just over talking to Nate McMillan. Nate McMillan's gonna be a big asset for Lloyd Pierce this year. No doubt about that really helps to have a guy on your bench Who's been a head coach in this league? What? The player two? Yeah. Defensive players. Fashion. Yep. So trade makes all three so he's got 13 points on the night now. Five for five from the line. He's got four assists. Now It'll be Clark Clark. Now they get it over to Valence. Shoot us back out to Moran in the quarter goes, debate was wide open, and he missed the rebound of Brandon Clark had it stripped and stolen by trade. Here comes Trey Young back with it. Now trail left side pass goes over to DeAndre Hunter DeAndre on the baseline. He puts up the right hander. It's no good, no foul. Now, with a minute to go in the quarter to get it to Merin Merin down the lane kicks it off in the corner. The three point try is off the rim and no good that time by Jones. Here come the Hawks back. Okay, Bogdanovich Down low. He goes the Andre Hunter. I don't know how he caught it, but he did, and he laid it in the Andre Hunter. He makes it. 64 63 Hawks have regained the lead after being down by seven. Actually, they were down by eight at one time. Now it's Ah, one point Hawk lead with 52 seconds to go in the quarter. And Albarran hasn't Moret dribbles across right side job? Moran Way outside, He goes with his past. Now where there's gonna be whistling a file against the Hawks Entree followed Tyus Jones stray picking up his first You don't know. Trey didn't think so. Both sides over the limit, so it'll be free throws coming with 43.6 to go in the second quarter. Free throw is good. By Jones. That ties it trade this one around every player, I think they he called.

"Down the road here I mean I think the whole premise of this is the idea that if Brett Brown is not the right coach of this team, you have to at least try right before you start entertaining dramatic ideas of blowing up the team you're really banking on a tie. Lou to come in and make sense of this. You know a different kind of coach and maybe that's the most dramatic difference in terms of this Miami Philadelphia parallel is accountability right? Like if nothing else the Pat Reilly. Erik spoelstra regime is an engine of accountability and that's been the complaint all along with Brett Brown is that guys like Ben Simmons Joel Embiid in particular are not being held to account are not being forced to play the way they should or not being your that voice for Like br bread is a good human being and good at relating to people and good at connecting with guys. But clearly, that was not his strong suit in terms of getting those guys to play the way they needed to. So there comes a point at which regardless you know I think breads a good coach. But that voice wasn't reaching anybody. You certainly wasn't reaching the most meaningful members, the organization which are Joel Embiid Ben Simmons, and so sometimes, it changes sake can be meaningful in that particular way. I it is funny. What time Miami Philadelphia there are those close from Josh Richardson where he literally just said what Rob said in. So many words it's like word for word culture accountability. I was somewhere with was culture and accountability. Now I'm not. We got to change that like that was a direct quotes Dot Richardson is known anybody having said that though it would have been better if Jefferson, like made a couple more shots. Yeah. Initiative offense a little bit better if he played like he did in Miami so. I don't know obviously the situation is a mess. Run out of time here. So let's do either the blazers over the Magic Tom as as our guests you WanNa talk about the future of Orlando or Portland Portland let's go. The wrong answer Tom. Talking about Portland. Just frees us up to do a whole magic podcast later don't. I want you to have the ball for for sixty minutes on the Orlando Magic. Takes don't worry about it, but Aaron Gordon though so obviously, Portland had a pretty miraculous run here they're barely getting by on the court right now it seems like everyone just needs a nap like in the middle of the game, they just need to set up the blankets in the locker room wherever is going on backstage there and take some time off to. Damian, Lillard at least for this next game on Wednesday which. Would end here so. Sorry if they ended up making them racket come back and when Gabriel scored fifty points, but we'll just assume. Tom, what's what's the path forward here? Do they have enough as currently constructed? They need like one more piece in there good or do they need something a little bit more significant? Ben I think they need a ball mover three, four wing Draymond green is always thrown out as the guy that a that they need. They need just someone who's able to relieve some of the pressure off Damian Lillard, defend and pass. Because I. Guess The the point is that Nurk was supposed to be that guy, but he doesn't play any defense right now whether you can chalk it up to conditioning rare being away from the game for a year these dealing with a death in the family, but they have provided absolutely no No pressure whatsoever defensively, and Nurk is a really good passer But I think they just need someone on the wing not trigger Reza They got mellow who's as you know as much of a black holes, any player in the League on the wing. So going forward I do think that they need to be pragmatic about their ceiling in this current format and I love the back court receive mccollum, and Damian Lillard. But I also love the idea of them. Being for a guy who's able to be. In an I duNno. If there is a player Andrea Goodall in his prime, but someone like that, who can defend and move the ball and be the kind of that that wing defender that can also be a point guard in a pinch. Am I crazy for thinking that that might be Kyle Anderson's music. Thinking in my head, but that'd be a great pickups for them like I love that idea and that's the threshold you're working with right. You're not going to get a guy that defends and moves the ball and hits threes. You might be able to get to those things and so Anderson's I already have visions in my head of him being in that you know the Mohawk lists spot essentially of being able he has to shoot five corner threes in this playoff game and it's GonNa. Come down to whether he hits one of them are three of them and isn't that isn't Kyle. Anderson. Just tall and Turner though. Rude. How.

"And you know I'm selfish and you guys at Liss. Cowan. Pals you guys know I'm hard for Oklahoma City not then I got anything against Houston don't want Oklahoma City to win so I can get paid get that respect. So Advantage Oklahoma City tonight because Mike Dantonio. Normal that your head coach. Doesn't have a contract extension and one foot in one foot out I. Feel like that could be enough in a series that to meet bills is right down the middle can go either way i. that's kind of an advantage for okay. See I mean who knows how Houston with play when all this? Gets worked out. Might get Tony Distant many innovative things there if they. If they think he's gone, do they not like play with that extra effort? I don't know I felt like throughout this playoffs feel like they're bringing it and maybe this isn't news to them, but I just find it interesting that Mike Dantonio linked to a job already had a job in the playoffs he's playing tonight. Team is playing tonight on a completely different team and he's linked to another job where I just fired. So I don't know maybe I'm reading in between the lines here but I do think that could be an advantage of Oklahoma. City. Yeah. I do too but Houston's been dealing with this for a while scall- going back to last off season Daryl Morey the GM of the rockets and Tillman, for t to the new owner flew to West. Virginia to meet with. Mike Dantonio Mike De. Antonis Agent Warren Gary, who's one of the most powerful agents in the NBA was not at the meeting he was not invited to the meeting. So no extension was signed at that meeting nor was one agreed upon both sides kind of begrudgingly agreed. All right. We'll play the year out with Mike. Is a lame duck kip coach, and then he will be an unrestricted free agent. So to speak as head coach Gal and this is where this thing is so crazy in the NBA. I. Think when you're inside like you and I were scale for a long time, you tend to normalize it or think it's normal. Then when you take a step back and you removed from league like I. have been for the last two years after fifteen plus inside the walls is not normal like these aren't how normal businesses act normal businesses behave where you have. You know Philadelphia's still playing in a playoff series and before game four even starts there leaks seem to come from the seventy sixers organization that round is on his way out you know regardless of what happens the rest of the series? Then nate McMillan. Again, he signs an extension a week or so ago then now he is he is out as the Pacers head coach and then Mike Dantonio who scall- they have a chance you and I don't think it's a great chance given they have to be too tough. Okay. See team this round, and then if they do that, they have to play the number one in the western conference, the Lakers. But all that being said scale the rockets or a talented team. The, guys who set the lines in Vegas seem to think they have a chance to win the championship as to others. So all all that being said, it's just really unusual. It's really unique. Unfortunately, it's becoming more and more normal in the NBA scale the sideshow. So to speak the circus but that is part of doing business in the NBA and twenty twenty and. I'll be interested to see if Dan, Tony and the rockets places players can ignore the distractions in the chatter that is now heating up Tony Not only is he not going to be back in Houston, but he's likely to coach somewhere else in a few of the teams including Indiana are now listed as his potential landing spots for the two, thousand, twenty, twenty, one these. Yeah. There's been a lot of tea lou talk with a lot of with Philadelphia New Orleans there's I wonder if Macmillan with jump into these some of these talks as well I think nick McMillan would be really good for 'em be because he doesn't care man he calls people out and I. that's I think that'd be good for embiid and Simmons to go kind of a different direction when it comes to being held accountable and until I think the. Coaching search micro. What was the off season? We're like no coaches lost their job. was that coming into this year that every coach was was safe i. think it was, and now we're like we're gonNA have all kinds of movement when it comes to coach it's so funny how that stuff works I. Everyone stands Pat Until One person does it and then everyone just jumped on that bandwagon afterwards. So really interesting what's going on in the NBA and I've always thought nate's teams played extremely hard and I always Thought. They played and they were always prepared when they're in there from my days when I used to like watching the sonics play and I grew up I grew up idolizing nate McMillan dot. He was really good in Portland I thought he was good at Indiana at times. So this is a really interesting thing because there are some jobs out there and then be interesting if nate's wants to maybe take a step back and take the year off or does he want to get right back into that fire? Yeah. He's still getting paid at least some level for next season scallon that's really interesting. You bring up a great point two points actually one is that the Indiana Pacers now join a very crowded field with a lot of desirable head coaching jobs right so we have the Philadelphia Seventy sixers we have the Brooklyn. Nets. Have the Chicago Bulls, the New Orleans Pelicans, and now the Indiana Pacers scale. So those are five jobs and they're all pretty good ones I mean. You can make an argument for you want young talent you want veteran talent do.

"Two Mari yellow. All right. Stick to the NBA Nate McMillan. The head coach of the Indiana Pacers. So right now the third in the Eastern Conference they won the last two games. And right before the all-star break, they won seven out of the and they've been there forty and twenty eight and five since Victor Oladipo went down, and he was the only all star their team. So stock up to the Indiana Pacers. Excellent coaching job. And that's even going back to last year in the first round of the playoffs. That's a tough Pacers team without deep on skeptical. If it will continue, but definitely deserving a phrase so far stock down number one, Robert Kraft. I've talked about this for the last two days. Whatever side of the fence, you are in this one whatever you think about Robert Kraft. He was stupid to to this day spa in Jupiter, Florida just stupid for a man of that power manner that influence to go into one of those places dumb. Nothing. Good could come out of it. And he deserves everything he's getting right now in the public chastising court of public opinion. And then also legally by league much won't probably happen. But what he did. Here was just dumped the put himself in that situation. So stock down to someone I usually like the praise, but in this case, he was dumb and Robert Kraft. Stock down. Number two is the NC double A. So the NBA is proposing to bring back the draft age to eighteen so that would eliminate one and done that's bad for the NCW. I know we can all complain about one in and all that by a guy like Zion. Williamson is the best story in college basketball this year, and you won't have any more in a few years. So a stock down to the NC double A is they're going to be hurt by this one and done for Steph. Oh, quickly rapid fire. Let's go stock down number one Christian hackenberg. We already covered five picks in three starts in. The upstart. Got bench today for burger men. Burger led a touchdown drive. The people who thought to use a second round pick on Christian hackenberg. They're still employed somehow, I don't know. I don't know who they are. I don't know who they are are still employed. Those people. Second stock down goes to this whole UNLV. Rick Pitino story if you've seen this. But now every every head coaching job is now going to be want. This job does Rick Pitino at that job. Why are we so forgiving Rick Pitino? Like, oh, all of a sudden, he Rick Martinez gonna make all your problem disappeared. No, he'll probably multiply them to make it worse.

"Well, I think as I eavesdropped on the conversation that it's not only lacy, but how your legacy ca then create opportunities gifts that will reveal in the future. So when you mention Charles Barkley while he didn't win a championship, you know, his career. And obviously is personalities gifts is what set the table for career in broadcasting and Charles, you never know some day. He may be governor of state, you know, in this country or curve who want a lot of camping trips like Hori, and while that was special and unique to be able to to win champships Santa Tonio in Chicago. I was how those experiences informed future as a general manager broadcaster. And then of course, now a coach, but legacy isn't. Portent that's a footprint that you leave behind. And there's the championship Ray the, obviously, which is ideal. But also there's legacy in terms of how you treat people and your integrity and the way you drive and things along those lines. So I kind of look at legacy of number our at least through you know, at a different lens. Maybe a number of different ways to look at legacy. You know, one of the things that when I think of legacy is obviously, you know, one of the legacies that you left being a head coach over at UCLA. And now would you see that job is vacant right now? And you're trying to figure out what should you do where do they go? How do they get back to where Westwood was the was the place every college basketball player on the west coast wanted to be what's the first thing that UCLA must do when they look at themselves in terms of going for the next higher. Well, you wanna look at a great fit. And so often fit is determined by timing and Earl Watson who I had the honour of coaching for four years. Matter of fact, he never missed a start an iron man, I as a starter for us for four consecutive years. And the fact that stops along the way not just UCLA. Then thirteen years in the NBA. And while he was in the NBA playing for Nate McMillan Huby Brown, you know, influenced by coaches and NBA. You know executives like Jerry West y'all so played for Jerry Sloan I learned from Popovich and our Sione when he was coaching DV dream in Austin, Texas. He's drawn from grapes peering through. So, you know, I feel this point with Earl Watson background is UCLA basketball players thirteen years. The league is experiences. Learn from different coaches time with the Phoenix Suns the head coach are set him up as the ideal marriage or fit and naturally UCLA's. Gonna do a national search president gene block, and yet let director, Dan Guerrero. Bob Myers, another my former players head of the search committee of and I think when all the dust settles. There won't be a better fit in the country. Then our Watson in terms of where he ad where he is in terms of his aides. He'd have the opportunity to stay at UCLA for some decades. And we haven't had continuity UCLA. John wooden was there for twenty seven years, and I've been one of the challenges when you look throughout the country the schools women national titles on a regular basis. Other one by coaches that have been there for fifteen twenty twenty five thirty thirty five forty years, consecutively whether it was eight off ramp, but Kentucky Duke, ROY Williams and Bill self currently Kansas North Carolina, lute Olson twenty five years. Tom is over twenty years behind your cues close to forty years. Jim Calhoun, Connecticut, you know, twenty five years of these coaches, stay in place, they kingdoms less. John wooden dairy off up did and even. Have tough years. They get bumped down the first round occasional losing season. I like Dylan over chain. Right. Went through some tough times early some tough times middle of his career vila-nova, but they stayed with them. And now he's want to out of three national titles.

"A series we haven't seen that much in the playoffs yet you know james has been great cruise been bad or soso chris's been great james has been bad or so so they're going to need to combine greatness but this goes beyond him heir gordon is not been air gorgeous eighteen points in the regular season thirteen in the posies trevor reza from twelve points in the regular season or eleven to eight you know and not shooting well either one of them those guys are gonna have to step up if they're gonna have a chance to be golden state i think this this series goes down to the team mr hungary's pay attention to houston because their legacies are online right now james and c p they're playing for something more than just a normal playoff series they're playing for how you define their career when they're done this is their opportunity i think i like their relationship with each other because i think they'd get along even though the adversity it comes to in the course of the season and guys tend to bicker and fray a little bit they're competitive and they're playing for for how you view them when when when there's all said and done i think they won a championship well giving boston a chance to beat lebron because brad stevens i mean if you put nate mcmillan there if you put terry stott in we would like lebron to win the series a big part of that component is brad stevens will steal games listen when i say mike dan tony what's the first thing you think about so could deploy okay so i get the better team and the better coach and the four stars and championship experience i don't think it's that competitive is gonna make any adjustments i mean you know any major adjustments throughout he said utah we said that mike dantonio doesn't have any adjustments in england utah won two games like they showed you that they can turn it up defensively and make defensive adjustments with the staff that he's put together now i don't think he has the same staff in phoenix i think his staff has gotten better and he's he's able to do different things than he did before i'd like dante's point about chris paul and james harden's legacies being on the line draymond green steph curry.

"Win that game that's how you know criticize anybody first of all might have been goaltending doesn't matter but there wasn't cold but victory will start you move a little bit later and make sure there's no time left on the clock the game was tied what is he doing now i agree that but nate mcmillan to defensively with three seconds to go how is lebron james and single coverage no one else let someone else beat you please let kevin love i can't hit it right now the fact that lebron james is at the top of the key opening up to get the inbounds pass and then he is single coverage where he can pull up for three pointer how often is lebron james get blocked when he puts pulls up for a three point of very rarely how is there not to people on the brian james in that situation the one guy that you don't want beaten you is lebron james for nate mcmillan he's got explain something here he's got to explain what his defensive philosophy was in the final three seconds of that game because that to me is absolutely a head scratcher you're right look victor oladipo he made his move to seconds too early he did no question about it maybe you don't even have to worry about that last possession for the cavs if victor depot does the right thing and make sure there's no time left on the clock yeah matter i mean come on what does he do he's a veteran ballplayer should never you should know better than that do that the only way you do that sean is if you know cleveland has no timeouts it's the only way you can do that but because cleveland had a time out they could call a timeout they can inbounds the ball obviously on the other side of the floor and that helps if there's no time out they get the rebound yeah the chance then driving down the court and scoring a much slimmer than them actually being able to set up a play and actually get an inbounds pass right there and there's own but the cavs if so many issues defensively.
