Best Value Plays for the NBA Finals
"I want to touch on the nba no guest for the nba finals discussion. And we've done that throughout the postseason. Basically i wanna touch on a couple of things that stand out to meet the honest injury. Look we all wanna fire and make bets and hopefully win money on these big events right whether it's the super bowl the nba playoffs stanley cup. You name it but sometimes there's just not an edge and i just think it's too difficult right now to lay the series price of two dollars not knowing exactly what we're going to get with honest and when we're gonna get jaanus to return all signs point to his being out tonight for game one but willie return game two or game three. How effective willie b last round. We saw trae young return. And frankly i probably would have benched him in game six in the fourth quarter. At least he just wasn't that effective wasn't the usual stellar trae young. We were used to seeing this postseason or is it like joel embiid. After missing the second half of game four in the first round then missing game. Five sixers beat the wizards he. He came back from the injury and he was just managing pain more than anything. He was still dynamic. Not quite the same. Didn't have that dunk that. He said he could do it. One of the end of the one of the games. I believe it was game four against atlanta but nonetheless it just wasn't the same embiid but it was close to so if you can tell me exactly like how big of a percent how close to one hundred percent. We're going to be honest then. I can come up with a firm play in terms of the series price. Game one for me. No real opinion. It's already baked in the line. Honest isn't gonna play it. Let's say he's out officially might go from six to six and a half if he's miraculous you're gonna play maybe goes to three from the minus six just because it won't be one hundred percents so it's really tough game one favorites in the nba finals. The last fifteen sixteen years fifteen in one straight up fourteen to two. Ats now that's just a trend but sup denote given the sons at home court. I think they're going to win the series again. Don't wanna lay the two dollars. I think we're seeing a very loose milwaukee team that finally got over the hump reach the finals. They've been playing really tight. The last few postseasons especially this year. They were really tied against the nets but did get the w. thanks to kevin durant shoe size and game seven enabling the game to go to overtime and obviously outlasted atlanta thanks to couple injuries but both teams have benefited but nonetheless. They are here. No asterix whatsoever. At all. In my opinion. I just think if the only play i'm making a cpa three to win the mvp at plus one eighty to me. He's going to get all the difference from the voters if the sun's win at all thus booker or whoever else maybe eight and but book is really the main competitor. He has to put up astronomical numbers and for the sons doing. I just think c. P. three's going to have to have a stat line right. He's going to have to have double digit assist and a few games. Put up some points. I just don't think booker's capable of just having monster monster monster games in the four winds. So i think if it's remotely close. I think it's gonna go to chris paul because the leadership and all the other narratives so plus one eighty compared to minus. Two dollars is worth it to
NBA Playoffs With Brian Windhorst
"What are the. What are the rules on profanity. In his podcast brian. I'm going to. I don't know how else to start. I'm a spectator at this point. I'm just going to enjoy this. Brian windhorst covers the nba for espn. And he's been covering this infuriating game for two decades. Can we believe that one. Can we just kind of get that one. Just out of the way nice big.

"Los angeles clippers. Where do we go from here. What's happening with the clippers. They lose the series. Let let let let's call. Let's play is the worst case scenario game. Now here's your host. When do what happens. Man playing this game if the clippers lose four row in their swept in the first round of the playoffs. What do we do with this team. You're not you're not trading paul. You can't improve yourself in the draft because to acquire paul george. The clippers gave oklahoma city. I think all of their first round choices until the year twenty four sixty six. What are we going to do with quiet. Leonard what did the legacy mean for quiet. Leonard what do we do with tyler. What are we going to be doing to team here. There's nothing that we can do to improve it bradley. Beal is not going to the los angeles clippers. There's no major upgrade that you can have. That can improve the los angeles clippers for next season if they lose four to the dallas mavericks. And i don't even think it's a situation where we're dealing with lack of talent. I don't want to call lack of hard. I don't know what the hell is doing. The los angeles clippers but right now multiple things going on where we thought. I shouldn't say what what i thought were just like You know this that and the other that wait a second here. Wait a moment memento. There's some really so much stuff really need to look into that.

I don't know.
Aaron Rodgers Seems to Think the Packers Planned to Get Rid of Him After 2020
"The end. Game is only to end games. Rich he playing for the packers or he has forced to trade but if he does force a trade. I hope he's confined a team. That is better than the one that he's been to two straight. Nfc championship games point quarterback for any chance. He sits out a sees. No no no no not at says h no. It's two options. He doesn't taste your door to. That's right he only controls one of them can control the other one he can. He can control if he comes back and plays but he can't control if they train them or not and if they say you know you can pout. All you want you consider if that's what you want. We're not trading you. then he his hand is forced. And but what does the aaron rodgers who doesn't wanna be there. Look like when he's out on the field. I think what she gets out there. He's aaron rodgers again and again. Would you look at the field be shocked. Let's say let's just play this out. Say does go back to green bay. Okay which is what i think is going to happen. Say goes back to green bay. He's reunited he and matt. Lafleur go to couples counseling. Everything fine okay is it. Would it shock you to see them. Plan brady again in the nfc championship game. The next january. No no. they're a great team and they're a great greater team with him
NBA Playoffs: Phoenix Suns Beat Los Angeles Lakers in Game 1
"Lakers phoenix suns with an emphatic. Ninety nine hundred game one win that they control from start to finish and you know what when we talk about the lakers. We usually get a lakers perspective. Someone from l. a. No two sons one game one. Let's get someone from phoenix. The first person. I thought it was the one and only eddie johnson. How are you sir day. I mean that's not being in the playoffs the so long. I can't even remember zach and i wake up this morning and we're gonna win the series. They can't be any better than this house. The arena. You know what i watch it on. Tv to be quite honest with you. I work i work so much is like when i get an opportunity to just listen to somebody else. Do a gain the replays. And everything i just feel like you know is so much more up close and personal for me but when i heard about buddies told me said it was just unreal eighteen thousand although they listed there's about ten six but it seemed like it was eighteen thousand so it was packed. Ready and people were partying outside so fun. Time right now saying we haven't experienced this long time. So we had a kerfuffle and ejection. Chris paul hurting his shoulder and and using a jump shot form. That was clearly not his normal form will have to monitor that going forward so it was an eventful game. The sun's sort of told the world. Hey we're here drayton. i'm here. i'm the. I'm the biggest guy in the floor. Andre drummond bigger than me. But i'm gonna play like the big sky devon booker. i'm ready you're gonna have to double me straight up hard double me like luka doncic. What surprised you about game one. What was something that stood out that maybe you didn't expect surprise me about the suns team. This is a team that i've been seeing all year long. I've been trying to convince the on. Tell them they are real deal. They are team. Personify one to fifteen. Every one of those guys are prepared. Money is a great job with them. They have confidence. they did. Not surprise me.

"And the washington wizards. Who lost the boston. Pull it together. Now they're feeling like it's all or nothing we gotta do what we gotta do their hot. Would you not played basketball for a couple of days. These guys that do not know what it's like to win and go deep year after year. Tend to come out a little slow if you come out slow on washington and you let these guys who know. They're considered the underdogs they know. Nobody and i do mean nobody but washington wizards fan in probably half of their fans didn't pick them. These guys are coming in going for broke. I would not be surprised if they upset the sixers. After a great regular season you heard it here. First game to the lakers. In the suns. On everything i love about basketball. This is the perfect bachup of experience versus non experience lakers won a championship in the bubble. The sons they don't have enough experience in the play offs. I love chris paul. Great point guard devon booker off the charts skills. Said i just don't know if they're ready for lebron and as a boston fan i wanted him to lose so bad to golden state. I wanted him not to be in the play offs. I get tired of the lakers are a boston fan. If you're a laker fan take this personal please. I hope you loose. I do not like the lakers. I did not like lebron james one of the all-time time greatest basketball players. But i personally do not like the lakers. And or lebron with that said i think experienced wins specially game one another team. That should have been beat. They're coming in feeling like they're the underdogs after they just wanna championship in a bubble. I just don't think phoenix has experienced right now. It would not surprise me if the lakers win. Game one in the series. The next game is seven pm sunday. I call this. The wildcard series of the play offs atlanta hawks new york knicks. I watch the knicks. Play boston when boston said.

It equals the reason to have a conversation about it. if we are plante. Good seeds today are food for thought for tomorrow will be plentiful for the future on this episode. I wanna talk about nba playoff time for my basketball fans out there. That listened to the podcast. If you're a big nba fan like myself a good time of year especially if you teams made it if not as just a good time to watch them competitive basketball see you know who might be a free agency who might be able to be picked up by. A team team happens to be in it. We had to be in a play in game which i didn't care for because we were seventh seed and if we lost we play you. Know the nine seed for the eighth spot and we could allow stead. And while i'm making this podcast you've got the grizzlies and golden state plan for the eighth spot. And so i'll give my prediction on that. Obviously you know. Go either way but i would lean more towards golden state from experience with says. Draymond steve kerr but you got the young gun in job. Mirant a really liked the kid. I mean i think explosive could be a top point gardening league some day. He's atop young point guard but with the games starting tomorrow See some of the games that start tomorrow. You got miami play in.

"You take the more talented team you're you're usually gonna look at. Is alfred dating to get the same amount of minutes. I mean the same amount of didn't like the for six of each half and yeah sets. I mean i would guess. Probably i mean again. That's one of those that tom tends to do And coaches tend to do frankly not even just a lot of guys like the kind of keep their rotations. The same and you know. Derrick rose has been so good coming off the bench. I could see them just rolling with that And look over. Peyton is also an interesting guy to throw at trae young. you know. These playoffs are going to be one of the trae young as one of the most interesting guys for people around the league trae young is one of the most interesting guys to watch going into these playoffs because he has been a guy that for a couple of years now as the hawks have slowly started to ascend and if got culture to this level of team now obviously in the playoffs for the first time in his career in his third season. Trae is a guy that a lot of people around the league really curious to see what he'll look like in the blouse and i'm one of them you know he's a guy that you're in the regular season. He really does an unbelievable job at drawing fouls and creating contact getting you know finding creative ways to get to the foul and while some people down on that i don't at all. I think whatever you can get free tros like good for you and take advantage of the rules. That are there that being said. What are we consistently see in the playoffs. Things are more physical. The games are called tighter. There's not as many fouts right right. So if you're if you're trae young who's a small slender guy and you're not i should say a lot. It's not like his entire game is is predicated on drawing fouls but it's a big part of his offensive repertoire race to get to the line and get teams in foul trouble and create free points because he's great three three shooter if that gets diminished greatly in the playoffs. That could that could really have an impact on his game. So i am curious. The i'll try. Look overpaid an excellent defensive. Wake guard at least six four long athletic. And he's a really good guy to throw a tray so while his offense isn't great You know he is. He can give them some minutes at the point and they've got frank tina to throw at trae. They've got a couple of guys whistle length that they could throw at him and i curate to see You know exactly how tibbs goes about trying to slow trae down and and again how trae handles his first trip to the. He's you know it's funny i did. I was laughing when i asked you. Because i know knicks fans are just can't take it anymore. They're just ready to the cartoon with the red face and the smoke years but i just because i had the dark be happy that they're the knicks. Fan should be happy their teams in the playoffs. Eight years and has had an unbelievable season. it is on the upswing. It shouldn't be worried about any of that stuff but we know fans we know. Fan short for net for fanatic Exactly but he's i. I said i don't want the next season and it's been remarkable run. Let's go to the other sort of coin. Flip series out. West blazers nuggets. Obviously we know that jamal. Murray situation blazers now slight favorites even though they are the lower seat and do not have home court. I like portland and a series a lot. I don't like him exactly in six games for a little sprinkle at four to one odds. I just think the nuggets. Obviously aaron gordon was the perfect fit. Murray andris snakes. it's terrible michael porter. Jr. been evolving quite nicely as a shooter and just a score in general and they're gonna put up a fight. But i i just like the blazers too much offense now that they've weathered the store sort of those injuries denmark and mccollum. Yeah they denver. Very well may have won the title. If jamal murray was really such a yeah i mean look they have. They have destroyed teens since they made the standard ordinary and jamal murray fairly played with those guys right. I think i wanna say michael. Porter's plus minus are is is net rating since like plus eleven or something last couple of months. I mean they have been awesome and people thought they were gonna take a huge step. I mean remember. The last time we i was on the pod. We were talking about nicole yokich in the wake of the straw poll being mvp. And you were not. You're not alone in saying well as denver gonna fall off your down. The stretch without jamal murray. Is this going to house worried about the four season. They get the three seat right. I mean they've been awesome and like they have not been. I mean they want some games against bad teams but they went. Beat the clippers on the road. They want one some big time game without jamal. Murray so i think they're very good That being said a million guards out. We don't know the status. Pj dosier we don't know the status of we'll barton. Don't obviously jamal is out. You know monte. Morris has been dealing with some injuries stuff for the past couple months off and on. I think you'll be good to go but is there one team. You don't wanna have guards out for going into the series it's portland right damian lillard. Cj mccollum or two explosive guards who've had huge plop performance time and again and and are very comfortable with the stage are used to plan on that being said even though denver are portland has upgraded in the front court. They don't really have the bodies to stop. Aaron gordon and michael porter jr. annika leakage right. So it's it's a pretty fascinating contrast in styles go back a couple years ago. These teams had an unbelievable series head. That one floor triple overtime. Which is truly one of the craziest games ever. I was at the garden. I think there was. I think it was the celtics. It was one of the celtics bucks games a couple years ago. And i remember coming back of just watching watching higher gain in the press room after interest. It was just it was just wild neocon sixty seven minutes in that game or something crazy i mean it was just a unbelievable game but So yeah i. I think if you're gonna pick portland. I think it makes sense to pick them at six. Like you said it. Generally if if the underdog team wins they're not gonna win game seven right even with less fans you know if you look over the course of time. The home team wins game seven of about eighty percent of the side. So if it's a coin flip series and you like portland. I think it's smart the pick six on. I really don't have a great deal for how it's going to go. I think you can make a compelling case either way and sort of like atlanta new york. I think it's going to be a fascinating series that on. I'm really curious to see how it shakes out. And look this is not really a abetting angle but from a big picture emba standpoint. Both these teams are kind of at a crossroads. You have denver on is gonna be out most next year erik. Gordon has one year left on his contract. If this team can't get out of the first running portland does that. Make them reconsider. Do they want to extend aaron gordon. Do they try to move on from him. Try to tournament. Does some other longer term assets after trade agreement. The deadline think he'd be kind of the final piece of the puzzle. There and for portland minoza. All kinds of speculation about the future will look like if they win the series. You know especially a phoenix. Beat the lakers. All of a sudden they have a path to the conference finals again but didn't seem possible couple weeks ago and if they lose you know who knows what's going to happen the other way so for two teams that have been in the middle of the packer or above western conference for a while. This is a big series on a lot of levels and to be really long and fun. And i'm very excited to watch. No i am right there with you. I I really liked both teams to live like a man crush on damon have had for a while but i still love yokich and the nuggets and there's a lot to like with a lot of these teams other than like being a lakers fan having some rivals here and there. I like all these teams. It's a fascinating white man. Yeah i'll tell you know just just piggyback on that. I think he's playoffs. Are going to be awesome like swimming. Everybody's healthy if you look at these first round series like look obviously from From a business standpoint the league with golden state win tonight but he didn't have jommuang gets in the playoffs in you. John moran going up against mike conley and his old team in the first round..

The NBA Play-in and Most Enticing Playoff Matchups
"Kevin arnovitz how you doing man. I'm well how are you. i'm good. I'm kind of preemptively overwhelmed. Kevin because i'm looking at the schedule for the nba playoffs four games. Saturday four game sunday and then it sort of continues on forever as this thing tends to go. Are you already overwhelmed or you cited. Where are you emotionally. I'm well-named excited. I neither some great first round match up. So i. I think it's kind of a more interesting season. I think kevin arnovitz has covered the nba for espn. Since two thousand and eight and he has a steel trap of a basketball memory. So i wanna start with game. That is still stuck in my brain. Kevin and we had this moment where the nba even as it is variously. Well-named was sort of all gathered around television watching the same exact thing. And i'm talking about the lakers. And the warriors and what. They did on wednesday night. Because lebron steph were certified filling every kind of dramatic potential that we hoped for them to meet. James drives onto scotto anderson tax at home curry reverse with the english class. Had lebron hitting an enormous absurd prayer of a thirty four. Footer puts up the three expires after which he admitted that he was seeing like three rims. Because he'd been poked in the eye by draymond he may have been plagiarising rocky four in the process but he wins the game that way. The whole thing was insane. And what i want to ask you about. Kevin is what you thought. The phoenix suns were thinking when they were watching that game unfold. I think phoenix is oddly. Confident like i. Obviously you run a great risk when you draw. Lebron james and anthony davis but i sort of liked the way. Phoenix is approached. This whole thing

Atlanta Hawks-New York Knicks Series Preview
"Let's get to the four or five nacho. This one is interior. Going to be a lot more entertaining. Probably the one. Eight matchup gets underway. Knicks hawks sunday at seven pm eastern on live from madison square garden. The best place you could ever go to watch a basketball game. The knicks swept the season series. A couple of those games. You know nate. Mcmillan wasn't even the coach so they were earlier in the year but keys to the series before we get to our predictions for nick's hawks. Trade started on this one. Well i think. Julius randle has an opportunity and a strong chance at being the best player in this series. He was incredible against the hawks. During the year in three games he was over thirty points per game to forty point games. He had a game winning tip as well. Clearly i'm tap dancing right now. I'm trying to pull up these splits here. You know you mess around with your tabs so much during a show it just throws the was saying julius randle thirty seven points per game. Twelve rebounds six assists. He had the game winning tip as well. He dominated the hawks this season. There's no doubt about it. They just don't have a great matchup for him though. We'll talk about some things. They're gonna do a little bit later on. I'm sure but i do think randall is going to produce at the very least the question will be. Where do the knicks. Then get all of their other points. They've had some great shooting this season. They got five guys shooting better than forty percent i think. Derrick rose has a chance to have a really good series here but skeets. I was listening to your podcast with l g do set on the. I meant you were talking about guys. Who have tyler hero. Potential somebody to explode in the playoffs who also has a cool factor. Let me offer you. Rj barrett my pick for this season's tyler hero forty percent from three during the season. Hit some big shots late. He was at forty seven from three point line for the last two months of the season. He really heated up. the shot. seems real. And i don't know he seems like a bit of a cool customer after getting called out by anthony edwards gimme rj barrett to be the secondary star for the knicks in this series. Because they've got to figure out a way to get to basically one hundred points

Inside Jimmy Butlers Psyche
"Nick for Dell I WANNA start in a very important place here. The question that everyone I think is obsessing about at this point in the NBA playoffs. What the Hell is going on with this coffee business that Jimmy Butler is running. Twenty Bucks Cup twenty bucks it is some high level stuff from everybody who has had had a taste of big face coffey. Why is this guy selling coffee? Why is this happening because he can Pablo Nick Fidel is a staff writer for ESPN WHO's been covering Jimmy Butler ever since he entered the League in two thousand eleven this guy brought a French press with him into the bubble because he wanted to make sure that he had the very best coffee that there was. So in true entrepreneurs style. Jimmy is charging twenty bucks a pop cash only as he's said repeatedly. Last couple of months to teammates or whoever else wants the show up and and give them some money because I can't get coffee nowhere here that's my bump it up to thirty bucks a cup just depends people here can afford it. So anybody complaining. Through the years it's only the best for Jimmy, Butler on a lot of levels in in the coffee is the latest example of that. So we're GONNA take a deep dive with you into Jimmy Butler today but let's start with the most recent stuff because they're coming off this Saturday night loss against the Celtics they still have a two one series lead game four is Wednesday night but on Saturday night in game three, the heath tendency to get behind early finally did catch up with them and in the final minute when they're flirting with yet another potential comeback. We saw Mr. big face coffey himself sitting on the bench. Usually, in these situations, look beyond the floor and I don't know of Jimmy Barbara asked out or injury does not back in the defensive possession. Especially Butler. Meeting offense who In the same reasoning behind. So. What was going on there? Eric's bolster said flat out that. He's fine. There wasn't an issue. Babo I've watched Jimmy Butler. For years and years to take him off the Florida eighty point is a struggle because of how bad he wants to be out there but to take him off the floor at the end of a playoff game. I just wondering if if there's something lingering that we should all keep an eye on but. In fairness the Spoelstra he did have a bunch of shooters on the floor, and I, know Jimmy has hit some big three's over the course of the playoff bubble the last few weeks but that is not a strength of his game. So maybe everybody is telling the truth and maybe Jimmy's GonNa be fine but my Jimmy radar went off at the end of that game big time because you you just can't take him out he wants to be in there until the very, very end. So. Certainly, certainly something to keep an eye on. That is absolutely something to monitor, but prior to all that happening game three nick in this series, and in these playoffs, the Miami Heat have been surprisingly impressive as a five seed. They're currently ten and two in the playoffs, and with this two to one lead, they still have over the Celtics. Their hands are still on the steering wheel and the one guy steering all of it. The one guy at the center of these comebacks gave them that lead is Jimmy Butler. So. When we look at Butler's clutch moments so far. Which one stick out to you. WHO As far as Jimmy in this series. Those first few shots. Down, the stretch in game one. Everybody's focused on Bam's block and it really is one of the best there's ever been. Sky. With the block and rejection. That is a ridiculous defensive play. Aside. From that, you're watching. Pablo. Early in those games especially in the first one, they're just throwing body after body after body. Jimmy. And in the fourth quarter, he's making tough shot after tough shot. Shot Praise God Jimmy Butler giving Miami the lead with twenty two seconds to go. Butler against Tatum drives them Deep Pang. Shot up and then and one Jimmy Puckett's delivering again, twelve seconds to go over time you start seeing steals and gave to your like there's no way in the world that he would have won that game without him poked away by Jimmy Butler all the way down the other end Butler leaves it and crowder puts it in Jimmy Butler in the last four minutes delivering for the heat. Heroes made some shots and and drag it has been there over and over but it's Jimmy who is setting the tone.
OG Anunoby's buzzer beater lifts Raptors over Celtics

Stunning finish miscommunication by the Boston Celtics is wide jalen Brown was pissed off Jason Tatum. Yeah Jason Tatum.

And tatum didn't get screened and just pointed opposite side. Nobody was man and Toronto. Now, all of a sudden is in the series to two one man Taco should jump go do something Taco wave your arms seven. No. He was waving his arms but I thought he should have jumped.

Sports Strike Against Racism
"This summer athletes have taken the lead by using their platforms to stand up against police brutality. The WNBA, has consistently protested throughout the year with numerous players even sitting the season out and on August twenty, six, twenty, twenty, four years after Colin Kaepernick began his anthem protests something historic happened athletes across the board streit and refuse to play today we're discussing reactions to this incredible moment in sports. This is the not. On August Twenty Third Jacob Blake was shot seven times in the back by police in Kenosha Wisconsin where we're calling this episode on. August twenty seven twenty twenty the day after the Milwaukee Bucks and players from the NBA WNBA NFL. Major League Baseball Major League soccer and tennis champion Naomi Osaka all refused to play or practice in an unprecedented strike in response to the shooting of Jacob Blake the NBA postponed the playoffs for two days. The first time that games have been postponed in this manner since Bill Russell led a strike in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, one after a day of deliberation players in the. NBA. Playoff Games pending further action. You're excited I. Know You're excited for sports to return obviously, this season has been one of a kind and unprecedented in. So many ways I want to know how do you feel now the players are using their platform in this way to be honest I feel this very strange sense of excitement. I need some really tragic kind of set of circumstances but I have been feeling conflicted after NBA Games kind. Came back I had been motivated by occurrences like kyrie irving standing in solidarity with Wnba players saying like Oh actually, I'll pay your salary. If you don't feel like you can play whether it's you know a reaction to corona virus or your desire to protest how support seeing. Lebron Kinda start almost every post game interview with a demand to arrest the cops that killed Brianna. Taylor. That made me really happy Siamese. Floor of the same energy that we have tours. Justice for Briana told, even seeing black lives matter on jerseys and in the court kind of made me feel a little better. I realized yesterday that this was the inspiration really been waiting for but now I'm wondering what comes next of course, how were you reacting to everything? You know I'm not like the world's biggest sports fan I do. I am a fan of black women and so seeing the WNBA protests. Throughout this year, but especially, the summer that felt released significant. Still I've always hesitant to look to athletes during these like highly political moments just because it's not the job that they set out to do. But you know as I started to see people sharing statements aerial Atkins from the Washington mystics we're going to say, well, we need to say and people need to hear that. They don't support us I'm fine with that. At the end of the day I'm GonNa make them good anywhere that I have to it basketball. It's not. Just what it is Chris Weber's telecast if not now when Not doing a pandemic. and. Countless lives being lost if not now when that is me in tears so lucid in that moment and so real and also just seeing how so many other sports leagues join them in protests were. Teased. Happen I mean it just shows. The hate people's heart. The thing is though is that as we were starting to develop this episode today so much has changed already in that the players in the NBA have agreed to return to playing the playoff season. Later, this week I don't think that all the progress is gone but I'm wondering what what happens. Now you know thought that same whiplash like I said, I felt like this was finally the type of inspiration leadership that I've been hoping to see from such a wide body players. Leaks, cross-border. It was truly abused beautiful, and I think now we need to do more I'm hoping that that since this is now on the table, players can put more pressure on owners to. Work with the people they are most connected to some of the richest and most powerful people in this nation are in the speed dial of most NBA owners even just the day if feels effective part of I, think resuming the season was the players putting pressure on the NBA to address the social unrest we've been dealing with all summer in some ways. So they started a foundation that's dedicated to investing in black causes. They're giving hundreds of millions of dollars they've given like you know the players, some approved protest phrases that they can use. They can put black lives matter on the courts and things like that and what I liked about this moment is at the NBA players were like that's what I usually do. And that's actually still not enough. So I'm hoping that we can see continued forward motion in that way something that I enjoy in this moment was seeing the NBA take the WNBA's league they have been holding it down all your curves pressing in. So many ways the thing is, is that WNBA, players, they don't make as much money as NBA players do they have really put their necks out there for social justice speaking up. Protecting black lives in many ways, it seems in some ways that they have more to lose by doing it. You know I am maybe two degrees below cautiously optimistic. That is a lot better than cynical, which is where I was before.

"Badly and Going through the process of it, the naturalization and all of that not easy and still saying we keep to ourselves. What tends to happen is you hear the kids say Come on mom we're in America now, and it's that pool that to me is is really the story of this country the first generation of the second to the third. And you could call me the third town stories from a distance because I was lucky enough to hear those stories I didn't experience it. You know just like I hear things. For you from him about all the discrimination, the Italians phased and I couldn't understand that I, I know after. The Godfather I loved it. After the Sopranos I love being Italian but. Back then it was a different story and It's almost hard to imagine living in this country without at least butting up against a group that's been discriminated against or is being discriminated against and thus to have no empathy for. I don't understand but I'll tell you this I know a lot of Republicans. Most people I grew up with. They're registered Democrats the parents, but you know the after Reagan they were probably Republican more and they might have voted for Clinton because he was more moderate. But you know these are the classic Ohio Dams that became Republicans and we've seen it. Now the Republicans have won Ohio A- she except when there's blow outside with Obama. Blown out McCain he you know he went to high but generally. Trump might lose significantly still win Ohio. There's been an evolution of that stay out of the purple and more towards the red. and. They of these converted Republicans it's comback in. Ohio. The racist now. Not Racist in the way of. The classic definition, a lot of people can debate that definition and. You know that's not for me to do. It's not for this show but in the classic sense, the obvious sense not racist but. Some of them want to keep themselves. But they also are empathetic. With those being mistreated so The News Desk told us a while back that the Milwaukee brewers game got cancelled just now in the last five minutes, it was taken off the board here in Vegas is Vegas, was skeptical I guess they're saying.

"Their offense is probably going to be better. So I took a position with Houston. I laid the series minus one fifty. I Have The plus two here in Game One and you know I is back in game two, three, four, five grade. It's fine. I think he's good enough as a bonus defensively and he can hit tough shots in the force in transition all that stuff but I think people kind of forget. How good, James Hartness, just because they play such a key style of offense and the rockets are just going to out math the Oklahoma City Thunder. Team message the twenty ninth fewest threes they should a ton of mid-range Jumpers. The rockets don't shoot any mid range. They should the most threes by a big margin and as great as Chris Paul and Galadari are relative to the League at making midrange. Schilling were two points and the rockets are making three pointers with five shooters on the floor centrally. So yeah, do much and I think cardinal out do his thing gets out of the last two years they've matched up against Utah and essentially played Rudy Gobert off the floor where you couldn't even play go pair they had to go smaller with favors at the five or even smaller than that. What. What Stephen Adams going to do I'm really intrigued to seek is he's a very similar type of defender and guy wants to be you know helping protecting the rim this and that but if he's played off the floor. The thunder are not deepened any regard at before the Utah injuries are gone leaving. The bubble I would have said the thunder the least team in the bubble period of the playoff teams and sought out you know went the other way but I, I just think that's a very concerning for Oklahoma City is if The rockets, the way they play their small thoughts the thunder able to play Stephen Adams at center who they gonNa go to do you buy gallon. Rei. Senator. Okay. Good luck with that. They don't really have a backup center nerlens Noel hasn't even really been playing in the restart. He's there's that's a huge question mark for me and we've just seen it happen now in two series where the rockets hard enter you know basically saying you can't even play center on the floor if you WANNA be able to hang with us. So you really like the rock and I agree that hard and gets dismissed a lot from some of the the memes or whatever defense or lack thereof. But he's such an effective score. It's crazy and honestly Covington just been so so perfect for this team wingspan over seven feet he plays obviously bigger than he is. He's just the perfect guy for this team and guys like Dan House, and all these guys they make shots. I mean the whole league is just making shots now it's crazy I mean you see you see warm-ups, dwight hours making freeze it's just it's insane but I mean if they're gonNa just stick threes then there's no way to really defend it. There isn't it. I will say one argument for Oklahoma City is there tied for? Second best in the NBA opponent three-point percentage. So there are tied with Boston. Only Toronto is better by a few decimal points of a percent so you would think, oh, they're great at defending the three in the rockets shoot a ton of threes That's true to some degree. It's also relative to how you're defending the three A lot of teams have to double heart and when he started driving and then the rockets are getting open threes and so can Oklahoma City. Still defend in a way that they can go on one against harden without hardened destroying them with Stephen Adams like in switches, and if they can't have to double than the rockets are getting open threes and you can't really bank on city's three point defense that has manifested itself over the course of the season at least not as much. So yeah, it's a it's a really good match up I, think. It probably is, is that over five games even though I think the rockets cheap also have this going six or seven games pretty pretty fairly often whether rest comes back or not. So I think that's a pretty good and it should be close those red series stuff is really fun. So I'm glad you mentioned earlier with the Blazers but I'm glad you mentioned it again is in really is. Awesome component to all this. It's all you on the pacers heat I really have no feeling whatsoever heard solid cases on both ends I just gotTa Watch sincere goes I like what he did. They cast me a little bit money against the Lakers but. The Pacers their ability to score, they can just score much more easily than Indiana. They definitely can't even I think I was hoping for more of a reaction than we got him in the early openers were like heat prices minus two, hundred, zero, four I. Think it was the first one it's just been slowly climbing game. One lines been slowly climbing the the thing was this. You know you had T J. Warren who's MVP of the entire league for the first four or five games at the restart in the bubble to seven to ten from three like no, no problem at all just crushing teams and. He gets injured and he it was precautionary arrested a couple of games down the stretch. So people just remember this pacers team it was dominated and teach at war ongoing often here's the thing they don't have their most impactful guy over the course of the entire season was pseudomonas. He's not there anymore and I, not just kind of made up for that for a few gains. He's not gonNA shoot seventy percent from three in a playoff series, and he's definitely not doing it against Jimmy Butler who have any player in the entire MBA that has defended TJ Warren he's done.

"Stop Hammer time time now to. Welcome in a friend of the program and a delayed start or NBA playoff preview preston our you. Thank, you. Shame on me for not orchestrating this advanced but shame on the NBA come on. We don't work weekends, right? No one works just getting I. You know it was just a lot of things going on and. I was planning on doing something maybe for the second round or something than one one day of. Exciting playoff action. It's like, all right we need to do this, but I will say this I will not ask you about Fernando Pepsi's junior and sit and taking a three Oh pitch because everyone seems to be talking about that today we don't have to. So it's good. Let's skip it. So we did some we taped segments and we also did some. Contemporary Dot Com Chalk section terms of like our favorite place and we've talked a lot throughout this resumption and even before that in terms of the potential value with this unique playoff format in the bubble and the neutral court. And you were first ahead of it I wrote a piece about it that the bucks were just way too big. A favorites that numbers come down was like I believe a buck seventy five to win the east entering the postseason down minus two thirty but. It sounds like you know this teams have kind of out of sorts. What do you make of the start as we're watching their down days in the Second Half Game One? Right, and as we're recording here, think they're donate to the magic stole mid third quarter saw it's it's interesting. I think you know we kind of talked about needing to overreact or to adjust more aggressively when the restart did happen to teams were playing I I did that at the Lakers I've also done that with the bucks i. know they say or claim or want to say that they can slip a switch but I mean this is over four months of these teams haven't played another other going back at it you can't just if you look bad for games, all of a sudden great now against even at t Mike Orlando Magic were fourteen point dogs before this tipped off so They have looked out of sorts and I don't want one game obviously to they might figure it out. They deserve to be the favourite granted. We talked about probably not as big a favourite as they were up with Gordon Hayward Ben Simmons, Injury East is getting easier for them if they can get past Orlando but I will say this, I feel like. To some extent you know holders kind of been solved. Now, that's like the drastic way of saying the bucks aren't GonNa win they still can but Toronto Canada laid out the blueprint on how to while off Jaanus and make everyone else beat him and just even when I was in Atlanta had those teams that would win sixty plus games in the regular season they couldn't even win a playoff game against the cats. And now here with the bucks they're they're struggling and I saw last year up two hours soon, astronomy adjustments but knows doesn't make adjustments he sticks to the plan. This is what has gotten us here in the playoffs. It's all about making those adjustments encountering what the other team or your opposing coach personnel doing, and if they're not making man like they definitely are beatable in the magic again now up nine. I think for sure we're paying attention to and I on some similarly worried the Lakers site in the West as well. We'll get the Lakers in a moment, but I just want to follow up on something that you said that was really interesting. I quoted you for my column and I, just want to get this for our audiences with the adjustment to the no longer homecourt format. Know the bucks would be the one seat throughout and then the rest that that change to the format force the biggest adjustment in your your in your your model. It did, yeah they were the best circuit in the NBA or they were likely to finish it. So they would have had home court advantage through the entirety the playoffs through the NBA Finals, which is pretty massive, and then you know one thing I thought was. Worthwhile and interesting was that they were just kind of the most rested team anyways. At. That point. Janas. Leads the team with thirty point nine minutes played per game and they were spacing it out. But also did do a great job of that just their depth and resting guys and just not having to go crazy during the games implying me's forty something minute games just to get wins they were winning anyway. So they were. They had an advantage as far as is concerned than everyone got over four months off to rest. So it was one of those things where home court God rest gone, which probably would have benefited them and in Ben Simmons being back for Philadelphia increased Philadelphia's chances. But I think the bucks the drop off was either fifteen point one percent or seventeen point one percent I don't remember off the top of my head anymore but it was in that range where they went from winning the title x amount of times to fifteen to seventeen percent lower whose it was while the seat. But a lot of it just had to do with that, and then now they're not playing very while they didn't really in the restart and it'll be interesting to see how this really plays out. That we both like the sixers obviously that is taking a bit of a hit with Simmons now out for the postseason I liked some of the things they did and. Just in terms of the game to game basis I. I love the Celtics in game two may even hammer the money line even more I hated what I saw at the end of game one and I know you're model or you don't want to pay attention the narratives but I just feel like Joel embiid is they need to go through to win and I just don't think stamina wise and I mean I know he takes threes but at two pointers, you could just sustain it for four quarters in beat the Celtics team. So just some. The sixers are Kinda got a fold and I just really liked Celtics, in game two, well, the Celtics didn't even I mean that was muddling or not at narrative or not. It was just the way that the Celtics game plan an adjusted especially second half you know they wouldn't even let 'em beat get the ball in Philadelphia was trying to force feed them. They're trying to give him the ball and they would like semi double on the Entry Pass and then Toledo. Swing into the open guy and then Boston would rotate back or if they finally did get it into emptied, they would instantly double for real and then they had I. Think last three times he touched the ball in the post, turned it over, and then in the fourth quarter didn't seem like even got the ball a single time in the post and everyone's GonNa talk about that and blamed Brown. But look at how Boston defended that it was absolutely incredible. They had obviously planned it perfectly, and then when you're stuck with Oh, we couldn't get the ball to end beat in the post now there's only. Eight seconds. Left on the shot clock Alec Burks G. You're saying like he's the guy off the bench was trying to drive in, do hurry run and roll I. Mean it was just great defense from Boston So I mean I mean yeah. It at the same time the sixers were still up seven nine minutes left in the fourth quarter and almost won the game they were in it to some degree. So it's interesting. Yeah. I think it has to be embiid, but they have to do a better job of finding a way to get it on the ball in that position..

"The look these walls in know that. I walked in here one day with pitcher. Don Cornelius and put them up on wall. You know Harry Tuchman over marshaled. How you dot Co News on my side though you know what I mean like. You. Borders. We, had the. Why side your side, I turn. On the ice then watched ultra little bit like not every weekend. Because you took Larry Bird and Redknapp from. Mine. Larry because he paid you, that's. All that's all. How much of that contract be back Definitely, feel good. What else feels good. The NBA playoffs 'cause like, i. kind of news is going to happen. After. You get past like three seating games. You've got eight of them. You're kind of locked into your opponent and you're kind of locked in the main contenders locked into their seeds and you see limited minutes and you see the kind of the load management and you put out the be teams. Certain teams aren't GonNa make it or mathematically eliminated, and some of those games US couldn't really get didn't have the intensity that some of the early season games did but today it's all it's all over one thing we're not GonNa do is I'm not gonna I'm not gonNA overreact a game went upset not GonNa do it. Like Luca's scored thirty, five tonight and Capeeze going to score twenty seven and they're going to win by ten everyone's going to act like they're upset the clippers like Nah Donna's works here too long too long. And also let me tell you something refreshing. It happened to me as a basketball lifer off saw. Change in how the game has been. Consumed without fans. Therefore, how it's been covered? By multimedia. You ready for this Jacoby Desert? There is now a new appreciation for the art. Of how tough it is to play professional basketball and be really good at it play at the highest level it ain't Abou how many all Star Games or how many rings somebody got. Because we now see Whoa Phoenix went eight know. Who Only, squad again, for the people that don't wash the league like us by Oh yeah. Devon Booker has been all star. He only scores seventy points like four or five years ago in a game against the Celtics but people get a chance to catch up. How? TJ Warn he averaged twenty all year for anybody that's ever saw Pai Sergei Twenty. Twenty not tenor to twenty twenty days you. Also. Look. At the spurs that didn't have lamarcus Aldridge Rosen and and you know and the rest of the players great players, John Murray Line walking fourth and white like not household names they go out there with pop star making some noise. You know they weren't mathematically eliminated until the last day. so how `Bout Memphis how Memphis. They didn't make the playoffs but John Moran. And I'm not. Talking. About. Like their games. Her say yeah. The person I'm GONNA compare him to they both have a level of quickness. That's unmatched but I'm GONNA. Tell You my favorite John Moran Attribute that reminds me of Alan. Iverson. And I love this. because. Both of those guys. I'm fans. I appreciate cats. That sound ten years older. Than people their age. Right. I pay attention to that tree. And so listen to talk. We in a rule for the nineteen twenty, twenty, one, twenty, two year olds he sounds like thirty, two, thirty, three. Yup. Had that and they lost Jaren Jackson. He had a fractured thumb John. Did. You know what? He never did make an excuse. One time making few. I'm GONNA do some that Margaret Jalen. Regret. Sure. You're the trailblazers right? You Got Dame's fifty points and sixty points like. y'All just. Just went down to lasting reserves and then we'll say, oh, in Memphis without Jaren Jackson junior in the first of a potential two game series win on a last SEC. Needed a big bucket for mellow through CJ like. I know they could beat the Lakers anything's possible but I don't see it happening I mean that Netscape was a pretty revealing. The is absolutely needed that game the nets had did not need it whatsoever and played that way and it came down to Alaska childcare. Slumber. We'll see. We'll see so. I'll tell you what I think about this series. Jacoby Lakers and five if they folk. because. You know what else was happening? My favorite back court. To, a my favorite players autumn away betrayed I just told you about John and Alan Iverson. C. J. we were we were in Chicago and I told you Bill Simmons this same trait about who? CJ. and Vitriol the depot depot. Author known. And that is a lot of people. Would do I mean when I say that. I mean that. They will be successful without basketball. then. Be Successful what our basketball. They would find a way for us to still know who they are if they couldn't play basketball. The opposite. Jimmy Butler was why he didn't want to wear name on the back of his Jersey you would know who those four people are. They are old. So they're mature and I. IT particular recognized that trade. Is because as I started to get like thirty. Mid Thirties. Forty I'm like this do ten years younger than me, but he way more mature than I am. Not Certain. I'll talking to big on the deep well. What should I? got a whole school. Jail like. You, say you want to play in the NBA rougher. Good basketball and so if the Lakers show up Focus Jacoby. They put a lot of minutes on Mama bought. Mama's boys backcourt. Melo is great that he hit a lot of big shots. Know, it isn't so good. These had to hit so many big shots in the playoffs anyway started yet. Yes. Right. and. So based on that. and. WHO's going to guard Lebron no trevor reason. Nat, COLLINS NOT GONNA be able to. I mean. Happy Best Player going to be able to. Treasury was probably the best bed sustained Lebron. I. Love Gary Trainee had a couple of terrific steals late in the game. And He I I appreciate his shotmaking, but he's Seven eight inches shorter than the BRA. Probably what we wouldn't even guessed the pound. So. We will brusque where if it started going downhill, they're in trouble. They, go big big big lineup troubled. There's GonNa be a lot of pick and roll lot of pick and pop in Damon CJ going to be. Pulling up from the laws though, but lake is going to be killing him in the paint going to be killing him in the paint. Let me say that again, going be killing them in the paint. And you know Nurkic is my guy but he's one human being. I like assign whiteside he briefly. Blocked shots going to be fun and not going to be like. Pushover. But the Lakers should take care of business and. They really should. They really should. Jalen. I'm a little concerned about something. I feel like you don't have your. Suit, game in playoff condition yet because you've had five months off, you know what I mean like usually you're trying out some things during the regular season coaches trial, different lineups you're trying out different lapel jewelry and. Tie combinations like I feel like you're not in midseason form when it comes to your Satori choices for countdown and I'm a little concerned because I've seen where anything but a sweat suit for the past six months. Is Funny that you say that because I actually. To to try to pick out an outfit for the first time today. So you exactly right before now it's I need to leave on five minutes white. Blazer. Yeah color match. Any Blazer gone. You know didn't even think about it but today I'm like you know Maria going to be fresh. And Jay Williams Paul be suited and booted. So I'm like you know. Time for me to be industry taste maker layers won't like me saying trump in this. But as a multimedia member I love summer basketball. Basketball. When I get off, work rare basketball happens during the winter. That's Dirty winner. If you're heir Gordon and you know that the magic ain't GonNa win the championship. There's a little party who just wants to get out the bubble. You know what I mean. I mean he lives he might not be a bad idea. If you really don't feel like you've really got a shot at it. You Know Eastern Conference teams, the Pacers Good. But they making a run without some bonus as a party. Art Cheerleader. You out three zero in a series you get down three Oh and a series..

"To be a guy. What come back to Jalen and Jacoby two time for Jones favored segment where he decides Gus Tang it is time turned keeping moving. If you want to discuss the topic. Hit. The brakes if. Not It moving. We start with the washing football team that does not have a new name, but does have a new president hit the brakes. Jason Right seven year, NFL veteran business consultant has been named the first black team president in NFL history your thoughts Mr Rose. Congratulations to him and his family and to the Washington football team for this progressive move. It's embarrassing that he's the first. African American President in the history of the NFL the same for the NBA who only has one life president, and that's Messiah Jerry who happens to be the best on the defending a championship. Toronto Raptors when you look down at the field and you look down at the court Black. Clare's are more than represented is should represent itself also in powerful positions. Hopefully, this creates a lead domino. Jalen I have some bad news for the Houston Rockets keeping moving her hit the brakes. Hit the brakes. Russell Westbrook will not be playing in game one is they start the series against Chris Paul and the Thunder Jalen. Are The rockets in trouble in this series I wouldn't be surprised with that quiet injury if he missed the entire first round against. Warm Squat. I notice can be tough for him to watch his team go out there coppee hopefully becomes a law series a he can return. Pilot Shit love should strike Alexander. Love Stephen Adams. Can. The Thunder beat the Rockets No I don't believe so. I Want I want to pick them, but he he does something really distinct once you trae Cappella, you open up the lane so he can drive, slash and play like. A guard really plan forward and center minutes, and so he's been so very effective doing that I don't think you replace that productivity. Moving on. Alvin Gentry is out of a job keep moving ahead debris. The. Pelicans part waves with I'm gentry after five seasons. What do you think some coaching candidates that they should consider are and what traits? In for their next coach. So this is gonNA be musical chairs this off season with the coaching care sale ahead, coaches and assistance I would love to see Stamkos sale get his opportunity to be a head coach. They'll be surprising. Alvin gentry ends up as an assistant associate head coach somewhere else really sewn look it tyrod and Chauncey billips has tandem to joy somebody staff. I'M STILL GONNA trumpet for Mark Jackson to get an Opportunity Kinney Atkinson couple of first time coaches, Ma doco on the sixers bench and don't sleep on a wild card with the Pelicans Jeff Van Gundy. Atmosphere. Well for those of us to watch the Games on ESPN, that would be quite a loss. But I'd love to see him head coach. Again Jalen. I've got some really bad news about Detroit sports we're going to have to discuss. If you gotta hit the. So the Cleveland Baseball team has beaten the Tigers in two. Straight, games so we did a little research just about the State of Detroit sports right now where the the major sportswear Detroit is last in baseball last in hockey tied for twenty second in the NFL and they should be worse and the Pistons Well We know where the Pistons are Jalen, there is not a single team that represents your home city. That is winning games in making the city. Proud Detroit deserves than these fourteen I feel like start over with all of your major sports franchises just wiped clean state and start over as a city. Can we start a petition? Can we do something about this? was. The Jaguars Record I gotta deal with I can't I'm speechless right now. There's nothing to say the numbers speak for themselves. Put the put the full up again, just put it up there again. How are y'all lasted forty percents in sports you play and you know the line and the lines are last in the conference. The Pistons, did you see who the Pistons were putting on the floor right before the season was suspended I'm. Nowhere to get a buck from. God on behalf of your city. You deserve better. Detroit deserves better than this. This is making me sad quota brakemen. Gerald having our golf outing this Monday. Jalen and Jacoby is brought to you by the new or in Fudge Brownie blizzard of the month. Grab it today at D. Q.. Welcome. Back to Jalen and Jacoby. Jalen. As we sit here, right now the playoffs are underway and I just couldn't be more excited about this twelve hours every day of NBA Action and one of the favorites to walk away from the bottle with the championship trophy are the Milwaukee. Bucks their star player unlikely MVP the league this season to. He's frustrated by the three and five. Record in the seating games. How do you expect the bucks to perform now that it's playoff time? There isn't more pressure on a franchise and a set of teammates did it going to be on? The Milwaukee Because Giannis win back to back MVP's he doesn't have a long term contract just shipped with the team. If they flame out in the second round like you predict to the Miami Heat. and He's already frustrated by how they're playing in the bubble in the playoffs aim even started yet. That's not a good sign. So that's why I'm hoping that they played well make it to the finals. So he stays there long term does the Patrick mahomes thing. Because if they lose early like you predict. All summer. All season we're going to be talking about what happens with Jaanus next because if they win a championship I, think he signs it gets the money they get bounce I think he says, well, let's Kinda let next season play itself out. Financially, the best decision is to let next season play out those important they play well and perform. Well in this year's playoffs, we'll be back tomorrow enjoy the playoffs..

"I expect lucrative be guard at ninety four feet by Patrick Beverley, and then he's GonNa have switches with whoever screen in with Collado Leonard and then Paul George and they're going to suffocate him to the point where. He's not GONNA be as efficient as we're used to watching him be but he still very good. He's GonNa have his ties where he gets used to how they're playing him and has. His explosive moments where he scores and puts up big numbers but Chris Porzingis Porzingas has to be a difference maker seven with three Jacoby. He can add allow mantras heroin every comes back. To Gardo or Zubov to garden at three line he so sealed and one of the four players in the NBA that had the kind of talent and versatility to get you twenty points a game while getting to plus blocked. Oh, this is a great opportunity for him to play will on the big stage in the playoffs. I mean KRISTAPS can post up players he can hit open threes he's a great role guy he plays defense he blocked shots he gets rebounds like there's an opportunity for him especially with Herald probably unlimited minutes early on in the series for him to really break out maybe three point game as a couple of wins against the clippers but I mean You're favoring the clippers and this aren't you? Absolutely. Clippers their focus because the mafs struggle more than any other team in the lead the last two minutes because the first forty, six minutes they just play like they're not key numbers are crazy, and then all of a sudden the game slows down and they've struggled in that period. So based on the clippers in five. So you know, I had the Lakers winning the championship because it'd be wearing the Black Mamba Jerseys. There's another secret to the clippers success this postseason and it's video sailing you and I need to go to the table, break it down. Jalen. This is video of the stick man kitchen own joke him noah. Way By smoke but wait it say she's a sage, the hotel hallway. Clippers as they enter the playoffs. What do you think he's really doing. A likely joking is doing there. He's one of our guys because he's a true roster and you know it just goes. As New York knick or Chicago bull all what he wasn't in the League he's been consistent and here's what I say. This is a great veteran move. He's protecting his teammates Jacoby because he walked. In he smelled distance. and. I. I walk down the hall and has stage everywhere so now. Which became from his brilliant Joel I. Hope You get. Better leadership that is you gotTa know your role when you're the guy in the rotation. because. Who knows the original stick Kakapo more important player that they really need bucks? You broke out the massing age. Up and down the hall and intentionally put on Instagram case lost investigation as to what smells the eleven floor Venetian and he's like don't worry about it I. got this Great Move Joke Him. Noah. Gray move by you, Jalen. Some interesting news about the big ten. Now, they cancelled their football season and superstar quarterback from Ohio state just in fields started a petition and here's what he had to say on the radio and ESPN. Abby your big. Club all think that you can have a season safely and the reason why the big ten can do same I. think we can get everybody on the same track. That'd be Safeway actually to would we be more safe on campus playing some are off campus you know just just doing don't let out I think. You could track anywhere I feel more stay. Around my teammates knowing my teammates, you're going to get twice a week The safest environment for. Jalen can justin field saved the big ten season in the fall. He's a talented discipline, young ma'am, but the acid to your question is no and. I remember being a college student and as I look back at the pictures of myself with my ball head in my rock teeth and my bad skin, I remind myself that from seventeen to twenty one I was hazardous to my. And that's what I hear from caused player. Of course he's GONNA WANNA. Get out there and perform in play the game that he loves. Well, here's what I want to caution him on. All of those conferences have the same in for May, Shen. It just a couple of those conferences aren't telling you what's actually the lingering effects of what could take place here as it relates to somebody catching it and really having an issue too where maybe they get really sick or somebody happens to die who's liable for that. That's really why they're not playing is not that they care more or less about the student athletes everybody WANNA see football and everybody wants to make money. It's just a big ten and the PAC tin the PAC twelve have decided that the risk and a war versus health aren't worth. Jalen regardless of whether or not the big ten plays in the fall. Somehow Michigan's GONNA find a way to lose to a house state late. November. They might not even be on the field, but somehow it is going to happen. Russell, Westbrook will not be playing early in their big series against the thunder. We'll talk about what exactly that means for the rockets and much more you're watching Jalen and Jacoby..
"nba playoffs" Discussed on Jalen and Jacoby
"He's. David Jacoby RJ. What is it that we do? People. Put. People want the NBA playoffs playoffs are officially underway. Today we'll be giving you all the ups, but we start with the plan game on Saturday where it was Lillard, it was C. J. mccollum and even a Carmelo Anthony towards the end of the game that got the blazers past the grizzlies and the. For them to face off against the Los Angeles Lakers in the one eight matchup J. looking forward to that next series what are you keeping on? Shut off. John. Moran in the Memphis Grizzlies or basically plan. So terrific off season and even be shorthand Jaren Jackson junior terrific playing game versus the blazes. We're GONNA talk a lot about the Mama's boys back court of Lillard. Is. J. mccollum rightfully, Soda. Great. Shot makers but is to anchor down low is a huge key to what they do. Yes. Written involves yields do a lot of dribble handoff actions pick and rolls picking POPs. A great rebounder and so his influence has been key to their ascension east play. Well, they play will it's going to be a terrific series versus. I mean terrific series Jalen because I think that the blazers are kind of like now over hyped and like we're talking about Damon the blazers and how they match up against the Lakers. But I don't think it's as close as other people do the season series obviously the different teams this is the blazer team that didn't have Nurkic in for some time Collins, but I think the Lakers. Are GonNa make pretty quick work this one I don't think there's anyone in a uniform that Kim Stop Lebron Eighteen I think that there are no one can. But I don't even think the places will do much to do that. Whatsoever. We'll see we'll see about that one. What is Gumby? Terrific you some of the best players in the League on the floor at one time the Bryant A. Dame Lillard is going to be break theater but I do agree with you a lot of people feel like the blazers have a chance to win the series. I am not one of those people will be surprised if it takes Lakers six games to admit. When you love to see Damon Game One and then just scream at everybody in the bubble after the game is over his put some respect on. I believe in. Allah. Just love for him to win game one, sixty, five, thousand. Out. Yeah I got. As for you I said. Well you Dave, Allen. Iverson. I would love that but here's the reason why I now am one thousand percent confident that the Lakers are going to smoothly sale to championship. They made announcement there wearing the Black Mamba Jerseys if they get past the first round there wearing the black jerseys. Listen I understand this tough road, the players potentially rockets and the clippers, and then the bucks. But if you're wearing the Black Mamba Jerseys daily you can't you can't you can't. There's no chance to. Big. shout the Nike doing what they can to represent the honor. Of the legacy Great Lake Great Kobe Bryant and is GonNa be Mambo. Week we're going to participate eight twenty four on a happy. We're GONNA do some fun things on this show to make sure that we pay homage to the legend is well. Jalen, also, in a game in the Eastern Conference, it is the two seven matchup. That one is later this afternoon, and that is going to be the raptors against the nets and I have I have a theory about the nets approach to this one because the most people, important people, and that's organization they're sitting on the couch at home watching this one sean marks a Katie every everybody in the bubbles just auditioning for them because they're roster's going next year. So that's how I feel this plays out. They're going to lose this series, I but every possession they're going to be just auditioning for Katie Correa Sean Marks, they can stay. Next, what do you think that theory? I like what you did there and you're right I mean when you're trying to put together roster's going to be nurtured around the strengths and weaknesses of your best player and that is Kyrie in K., d.. But however, there's been a constant and I've talked about it on this program. Somebody that play will before they arrived in play well, this year without deal and that's curiously avert. As I mentioned the season Liangelo Russell had, which was phenomenal that allowed him to make the All star team that year cares the vert was going to do that to accept he got injured and so now people see him playing in the bubble like Oh. This guy can baugh will if you're talking about auditioning Jacoby, he should be a part of what they're doing going forward because he's a terrific talented he's a terrific and talented player. Or his trade values as high as it's ever been. So they should probably move in the oxy's first piece the fit better with Kyrie and Katie just saying I'm just saying Karen cares liberties the ball Katie Cadre Tutu moving on Jalen. To the sixers. Celtics. Macha now. This one is interesting. Obviously, the glaring difference between these rosters is the fact that Ben Simmons is not going to be on the sixers. What does this mean for Joel Embiid? Domination. Asks with me, the Celtics ties of front. They have kanter of front get ready for this. Marcus smart will be guarded and Joel Embiid at times. Just, like we still a PJ talker for Houston that's going to happen I expect forty. If I'm the coach I'm right now on the board for Joel that's what he should be getting against the Celtics in their frontline if fifteen boards. But it probably won't be enough because they have four guys this go get you twenty Jalen. Brown Jason Tatum what's going to happen with Gordon Hayward play what L. Kemba Walker is. So the Celtics have a great opportunity to event playing against the sixers who will be without been Simmons and Brett Brown standing on the sideline in essence coaching forced job. Joylin, beat scores a little more with and without Ben Simmons you seem with Ben Simmons he scores a little more but I really think that forty number it needs to be the floor for his performances. They really don't have anyone that they can throw at Joel that can stop him but if he's outside in the perimeter, Kinda, don't jab steps and running pick and rolls and doing all that stuff that they should. They should use him like, Kemah Lajoie Patrick Ewing, and just like running through the I know that regardless post players like the worst that played possession in basketball I don't care I want to see, Joel? and to see if he can score points willing to a couple of wins in this series, it'll be a good one I can't wait for that one and there's also some other application with the sixers. How far does Brett Brown need to go in these playoffs for him to be on the sideline for this team sees? So, here's what I believe Jacoby. He returns next year. Let me say that again I do believe he returns next year. The expectations Lord when Ben Simmons doesn't play. So therefore, if they lose, it won't be such a shocker and if you look deeper into their roster other than the Golden. State Warriors The sixers are only squad that have four players would a hundred million dollar contracts Either those guys will be on the roster next year and I'm including Tobias Harris and Al Horford since you kit trader core for. I don't think they're gonNA change their coats because changing your coach me's gotTa pay somebody. And paying those four guys I, don't see them this season going to pay a coach forty, fifty, million dollars even if they aren't happy with. I mean they are locked into big contracts for years to come, and that's GonNa really hot sort of like alter their ability to make real Ross moves 'cause no one wants to take on those contracts particular but. I'll know this suffix matchup isn't great for them. Especially, without Simmons if they lose in five games, six games, I, do not think rep broncos. I really don't think he comes back. If they get bounced in the first round I don't think he comes back you academics year surprise you really surprised by that they lose in five games to the Celtics using prep broncos back I don't see them right in a big check for coach this off season when they pay for players at least one, hundred, million dollars. That's my logic. I. Think that Celtics sixers matchups give one or more competitive series in the one series that I really WanNa be more competitive and think it's going to be. Is the Mavericks. Clippers is just so much fun to Luca, and Katie P put the clippers. With Kawhi, Leonard Paul George Will, and now herald back in the bubble about to go on the floor like this is a real bad matched up look what do you expect from him in this series?.
