"With the S. P. N. warriors reporter Nick free dell is the warriors against the seventy Sixers this evening but next step curry is out for the warriors warriors after only one game after his return why is staff not playing this evening in the moment this is not gonna play tonight we're going to see in an update from Steve Kerr in a little bit exactly how long you may be out I don't think there's any concern for the warriors perspective in the moment that is going to be anything long term but you just don't know as far as dream on green tea is still bugging them he was out on the floor yesterday he knew we didn't want to rush into it I would expect him to get a couple more practices under his belt maybe he's ready for Tuesday's game and you know if you're the warriors this is this is really a momentum set back because even though they lost the other night when stuff came back they will be meeting in the locker room because they knew what it meant thank you what his presence right not only in the next couple weeks but moving forward so it's just it couldn't come at a worse time for a lot of reasons specially the fact that it's a a national game on ABC but for the warriors are concerned there's just a lot of frustration in the moment because everybody was so happy but you don't think the way you break it down obviously that sort of eliminates well I think a lot of people's minds go when they see Steph curry out in this current situation was don't want to mess up the tank plants for the warriors right and a lot of people are kind of skepticism about how they're gonna handle staff's time on the floor and like you said that that should kind of eliminate some of that skepticism but on top of it that aside what did steps return kind of represent for the warriors for the building I know we played the building before but just the energy the atmosphere and what he could have done for them what he will do for them over the next couple months yeah but he he was he would like be dinner garden party the other night and I can't tell you how many players coaches IT executives the the staffers within the organization they're all gone this is awesome it is guys backed it everybody's feeling better about where there's energy around the building and then to have the plug pulled back quickly it's it's it's just not the warriors here at all in B. so much to so many different people within that organisation in the bay area out here in yeah you should be fine moving forward but to have all of those expectations and that all that excitement and into the news this morning you kind of go oh man so I don't really look forward to being back out on the floor I don't know if he still thinks there's work to be done in the next few weeks and specifically he was looking for clarity after weekend because they required in that deal from Minnesota a few weeks ago and and they look pretty good the other night so it's just it shows you how bleak this stuff can be the warriors are at the top for so long for five years now they're not step comes back you thank all right here you go for a month and a half and now that's gone through at least in the mall next retail is our guest on Dickerson and hood with Royce young in for Jonathan I D. S. P. N. radio and the ESPN app and don't forget the NBA is on ESPN radio tune in tonight as the Sixers visit the warriors presented by indeed coverage begins at eight PM eastern on most ESPN radio stations where would you rank this Draymond green B. for Charles Barkley considering all right mind you covered over the years the one who really had something he wanted to get across little Matt to the Charles do they didn't they could bounce back and forth for years in the media saying stuff about each other but this is this at the end of about a ten minute video posted or great mind frankly didn't seem that into it and then they didn't park we just mentioned it was like okay off to the races we go though I look I like both of those guys really during Monday's just frustrated about this season he's frustrated with Charlton said in the past but especially with the the triple three goals to close many times this year but I will not argue with dream on about this point he whatever he required I don't know if it's gonna take told goal I don't think anybody can take that role on that inside the NBA's real quick three months you've got back Charles Barkley and anybody talk to run the league they all say the same thing he's got the personality to do it though I would rather not go back and forth because I think they both need a lot of the games but that's not Charles is a player that's right thought gray monk little Adelard because so for all those on TV you within the lead vocal player in in time and I like people start to forget that because it happened awhile ago you know Nick we were at the game early in the year thunder warriors where and you can't tell me go into that game look what is not very good he kept trying to got to tell me this and I do see with my own eyes which is one of the worst first halves of basketball I've ever seen and the thing that I kept watching during it was and I keep asking myself I was asking you is like house Draymond gonna handle this sort of team and you haven't been around and he's been hurt a little bit he's out again tonight but how has he handled this you kind of touched on with maybe some of the frustrations and maybe that's why he sounded off Barkley but how's he handled this year they did it and we knew that right away in those first few games but just seeing him over the course of the last couple months all right he fireworks show if you will for the other the warrior the best team here with that Christmas day game with the rockets the cream on the floor you know it everybody is quite good but thank you Sir and then from that moment on all right the warriors understood that is good going to get this season and then step back and out on it it will be what happens next month or so here but for great money it's been so hard to keep him what's medically within the framework of the season in Plano with all these younger players what out of his way to many many times early in the year it's a great one at that ecstatic with teaching our young guys and being there for what is going on in the wall how about we can starting you realize just how bad it it was going and it's been a problem for common wrapped him in training camp they went the last time you want to lose you he liked out of your life yeah I went back to college and we work very good and I looked up the stats afterwards they went to the tournament still so everything is like this is been mental burden form and I know he was looking forward to playing with stuff too and I'm I know there a lot of people in the worst organization are hoping the cream on balance back going into this final stretch for a few more games were it looks like you'll great my great the free trial with us for a couple more minutes on ESPN radio and ESPN app so what do you think happens tonight I mean Steph is out but so was indeed for the Sixers and you know Philadelphia can't win on the road neck so what happens Gee do you talk to somebody that thought you your bill it could still be bill walkie in in the Eastern Conference playoff match up so I haven't given up all hope on Philly I do still think there's plenty of talent on that team but when you play without Embiid and Simmons you're never sure quite what you're gonna get one thing I'd say in the warriors defense you leave the record it's it's awful it's the worst in the league but it's a credit to Steve Kerr and his staff and the players they play hard almost every night is where where you watch this team and they're just getting demolished because efforts not there the talents not there and certainly without Graeme on staff that that's going to be an even bigger problem than usual but the effort with this group has always been there so I would expect a close game but I would think the Philly needing all the way they can get in that Eastern Conference playoff race is going to find a way to squeak this one out because if they don't man oh man thinks it's just going to continue to get worse than that in the meantime you know Nick one of the things is a lot of people say around late I'm sure you've heard the same thing is I get your laughs and now about the lawyers because they set themselves up pretty well with with having a likely top three pick Steph and clay back Draymond back they got into we're going to go to fit him in so get your laughs and now but on top of that with what's remaining you know I I I the other thing is Meghan and I'm curious to hear what the what what the vibe is like if they win seven out of ten was stuff back they're gonna be a little bit of like a Hey what are we doing here like it is is there any of that vibe going on they are both free to just gets the back roads in in women as much as they can because they they really believe in the momentum being able to Kerry oak and encourage instead of said the same thing in recent days and that the momentum in the next twenty or so games set the tone for the next fifteen months because and your point they completely believe that they're gonna get healthy next year we're gonna get this topic and they're gonna be right in the mix for another title okay may win another one with this group we're going to find out but they absolutely have to believe that this team will be good enough next season to go out in the in championship contention again so you know what happens in the next couple weeks as they get thirty give more bodies back instead of flying his rhythm Wiggins well we'll see but they believe the weekend as an answer as a third or fourth option on this team they believe that it is going to serve them well either with whatever prospect they select or in a potential deal down the line they believe that the the dynasty is still going to run in you and I both know talking to lots of different people around the league a lot of people don't believe that so it's gonna be fun to see what happens but the warriors absolutely believe that that window for championships is still open Nick we always appreciate it my.

"The cubs between him and labor Torres traded to extraordinarily. Talented, extraordinarily valuable young players to chase multiple championships. They got one of them they may get another. But I you know, the premise behind the cantata deal does not bother me. I, I like the idea that teams are willing to sacrifice the future to cash in on the president. I think too few teams cap do that these days. And so if you're going to criticize the cubs thing criticize the out don't criticize the process because the process in this case, I think was right and I- preaches the my kid all the time. You know he'll he'll get a hitting a baseball game and he'll say where you were you happy with the hit and I'll say to them. No because he took too bad swings before that. And. You know, you should that wasn't a good ball to drive and, and he'll strike out the next bat. They'll say what did you think it was like a great at that. Because the process is what matters here the process if you take bad pitches if you swing good pitches and just missed processes, what matters most in all of these cases in the process in cantata, I think was right. The outcome just may not be. Yeah. I again I didn't like to trade the day they made it. But I watched him pitch on the south side, and always thought never pitched in high leverage. You know, I keep hearing Winstone games different the great ones. Find ways to win baseball games. And he did it just he wasn't my kind of guy doesn't have great swing and miss stuff all I gotta ask you about. Kevin Durant, because I interviewed Kerry wood. And I, I you know, full disclosure, he's a good friend. I've interviewed him a million times, and he said when he took the mound in the nineteen ninety eight division series. He said, I think I probably. Already had torn my owner collateral, he said, I think I did it on the last pitch of the twenty strikeout game. When I got Derek Bell. I felt something then he said now I'm out a while. We're down to in the series and I tell them I am pitching. Game three any battle hung in there and he lost. And that was the last pitchy through in a major league game for nearly two years. Because in spring training, it came out torn on their collateral done. Where are you on that comp of what Kerry said to what Kevin Durant? Think it's perfect dead on hundred percent. Accurate. I think that the, the idea that people are going to tell athletes when not to compete is, is foolish, and, and is it, it just exists in a world. That's not realistic. I, I'd like to, to believe that someday I can have the same mentality as a professional athlete. But I don't think that's true. I don't think it's true. I think they are a different breed. And, and when you come up being the best, which every professional athlete is in his or her small town or even a big city. If you are good enough to be a pro you are the best at what you do. And then you go and get mixed in with others who were of similar ilk. And, and you can continue this weeding out process in throughout that whole time. There's this mental strength and fortitude. And in confidence in your own ability, that is built up to the point where that becomes part of your soul that becomes part of your being that is who you are. You're a person who goes out there and compete and. Succeeds. And you're telling me that somebody is going to try and take that very essential thing away from you, and that you're going to stand there and allow it to be taken that somebody else knows your body. Somebody else knows your willingness to push yourself anywhere near as well as you do. I think that's Larry Asli like shortsighted and in arrogant, frankly, to think that you can tell an athlete that he or she is not going to go out and do something is so long as that athlete knows the consequences. And if the person knows the consequences, and it's still willing to do it. I think you do not stand in the way at all I think you walk inside where with, with your, your head held, high knowing that, all you can do is inform them because all they know how to do and want to do. Do is perform gets accepting. Well Seddon as I let you go. I don't blame anybody for what happened unless you could tell me some doctor lied to him it didn't. And for me. I didn't Kevin Durant knew exactly what he was doing a great. He was I made this comparison yesterday. Kevin Durant was Jake Taylor at the end of major league. He knew he had one more sprint down the line. And that isn't he in that his legs? We're gonna we're gonna fail him at the end and he was gonna he was gonna make it go as long as he possibly could and get as much out of it as he could. Yes. What Kevin Durant was and I you know, I give him all the credit in the world and I hope the guy comes back better than ever. Well said the love talking with you have a wonderful rest of your day. Maybe taking my friends man. There's my guy that's Jeff passan. And we're so lucky to have him in the ESPN family. We'll take quick time out. We'll talk to Nick free del. He's at oracle. He's ready. It's Golden State and Toronto. And we will talk that game coming up next..

"And I understand feeding interests of the media hearing coaches view about a current MBA player something where there's a bright line. I'll have to do it and coaches or executives. Checkers positions to say I'm not committed by the league to respond to that question. It's and it's, it's a balance of interest. I understand that, but, but he unfortunately crossed the bright line. I mean a bright line bright line like that's where I would push back. Like, I don't know man. He's doing analysis on ESPN much like magic was asked about Jaanus is potential, and he said he was going to probably be win the bucks championships. Like if you really think about what he said, he said he has big hands and he's got a good mid ridge game. Right. So if you're interviewing him after a game in which they played or if I asked him in the middle of the first quarter third quarter in one of the games like, let's say I was doing clippers raptors like what he does. You know what I'm saying? Hey Kawais going off. What do you make of him? You know, he's looking like Jordan out there. He didn't shy. He's plays same thing. It's the NBA and their fines are factoring in the climate around a player's recruitment. So it's not that doc said anything that's out of line. It's that. The clippers are pursuing Colli. We all know that, right? He basically if you played that clip he's really about to just continue. Phrasing him saying he's got a great mid range game. Great hands family man, really fun to be around great values going to support the quick. He's really just praising him. And so I guess you're just not allowed to praise other players on other teams that the rule, I guess. That's now the rule I guess I mean it's bright line of coordinate him silver what maybe I'll ask the Commissioner. When I see him, I'm going to see him on Sunday and ask them over a glass of penal on your late night news show, Jay, cordless, some right over a little bowl and as Adam silver, and the napkin, tucked into as little skinny suit. Ask them after the second glass of wine. Ask you Commissioner. Lastly, here, we will have a Kevin Durant update from Nick free. Del who's gonna join us in about seven minutes. Six seven minutes the college World Series or excuse me, the college baseball playoffs are on right now. The regionals. Followed by the super regionals, and eventually the college World Series UCLA, the number one overall seed. Did you know that UCLA was the number one overall seed in Macau baseball tournament? No, I did not know that. And the women are really awesome going up against Zona right now in softball World Series, so yeah, wow. Southern California's got great baseball. Yeah. I'm so it all starts tonight. Seven o'clock. I believe the regional in UCLA aluminum bats. I love college baseball at this time of year. Lumina watch, yeah. They'll bring ping Yikes ping aches pain. I wanna see them. Switch the would. I know it's not cost effective for these schools, but I don't know man. There's metal bats for these. Dudes scares me. I love me. I love me some college baseball, this time I'd actually wanna go. I wanna go to Omaha to watch the college World Series. I think it's, it's a super fun event. People know, Mahar super nice and go to the game to where you want to go to Oman. Well, maybe if you see LA make shit. I'll go to just to go support. You know what I'm saying?

"Down a little bit on Kevin stuff. He hasn't even stepped on the floor yet. We've tried to remain somewhat vague. Because of the injury is really sort of open ended in terms of how long is their need to recover. But I think in doing so maybe people have gotten idea that he's come back. It'd be Willis read or something he hasn't even stepped on the floor yet. He still has pain. This time ahead of them on the rehab process. So we'll have more detailed update on Thursday sources telling Ramona Shelburne, it's unlikely Durant plays in game two as well. ESPN's Nick free. Dial the warriors aren't expecting Kevin game one certainly ending game to Steve Kerr made it a point to say to everybody pump the brakes, and it's worth noting that because thieves usually very laid back with the media. He likes let everybody have a little back and forth. But he knew that question was coming on Kevin. And when I asked it. He knew the message. He wanted to put out there. So it was very clear Kevin income and back for a little while it may go into games three and four, but they wanted to make sure that everyone knew that if the warriors were going to win these first couple of games at oracle at home. They were going to have to do so without Kevin Durant and has Steph reference there the players certainly understand it in these first two games. It's on them. They can't wait for Kevin to come back and save them interesting. All right before I let you go game two of their first round series against the clippers the long be remembered as the game they lost a thirty one point lead. But in that game. They also lost boogie cousins torn quad what's his status for this series? He is very unlikely. So far, I watch boogie try to run up and down on the far end of the floor practice today, and he was moving very slowly. I think there's some optimism because initially the warriors listen to him as unlikely for the rest of the postseason, so whatever they can get from cousins at this point is. A bonus. But the reality is is not moving around really well at all recovers from that quad. And when you go back to that achilles rehab. The thing that kept him off the floor before he finally did return was that he wasn't moving really well running up and down the floor at that point the warriors training staff was very cautious then they'll be very cautious now, so I would not expect to see cousins in this series. And if he were to come back at the end is just the cherry on top for group that already has so much talent. And the warriors got past the rockets without K D about getting through the Western Conference finals to the jump Scottie Pippen, Richard Jefferson with Rachel Nichols. Do you think that they can win their third straight title, regardless of katie's here? No, I don't think they can win without Katie. They're gonna be able to say win some games. They didn't game six because no one is accustomed to playing Golden State Warriors.

What was worse the Steph curry finger, which looked gross or the eyeballs of James harden? I mean, there's a part of me that's vote voting finger because I've dislocated a finger before. And it's really it's both nauseating the look at. But like. When when you're experiencing it, and you're seeing your finger like bent at that type of angle like I remember it happened to be playing high school football. Everyone around me was like men don't faint don't faint. Freaky seeing that. Yeah. It is like the red. Is you just sort of look, you know, like you've had a night out. But that hurts to man it does hurt. Yeah. But you're right. It looks worse with the finger. But I bet you harden was dealing with a lot worse. Pain to be honest with you. Oh, you know that you funny is when I dislocated my finger. It didn't hurt it. All right. Like it actually didn't hurt one bit even popping it back in didn't hurt.

"His thirty second straight twenty point game in the postseason Klay. Thompson had thirty two in the win twenty seven of those thirty two coming in the first half. He had scored forty two points combined in the first three games. But then opened up for thirty to forty minutes in game four he said, he went to the beach Saturday played some volleyball, and then saw the water that I'm going to jump in the ocean. And I just know that a reset my mind, quote and it worked. ESPN warriors reported Nick free. Dow in the first person to go jump in the Pacific or a few seconds and. What's going on? So he was feeling great today on the floor all of it. I mean, he was just dripping with with plenty of swag all over staple center because he walked out of in sunglasses inside. And you're kinda like, okay, clay. Man. So he knew what was on the line today. They didn't wanna fly back LA a few more days later for a potential game sick. So I was impressed. Because a lot of people myself included, two days in LA with trip them up at least in one of these games, and it didn't happen. And now they're pretty comfortable where they're at confident that day, they can close this thing down how confident to be they must be super confident because Klay Thompson. Sorry, talking about the Houston Rockets, something you typically don't do even when you're up three one. But I gotta tell you to me every everybody will talk about Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant. But it was the warriors defense in this game harassing Lou Williams keeping him to to of ten from the field. I thought that was the difference in the game. It was Lou Williams was the guy along that. They knew if you lease slowed him, and you didn't let him get one off the pitch that would control in a lot of ways what they could do offense of Lii in trying to get real quickly going big runs. Lou Williams was the guy they had a ton of respect for in. They do throughout the series. If you slow him you're gonna be able to do mostly what you want. They did today. And I think it's a great point because the warriors so often because of the way they play offensively. Everything else gets overshadowed in clay with awesome start going to seven Katie got it rolling especially at times they needed a big bucket in step was like three or four teen. So they really didn't even need Steph to do what they did it also with this team. Please defense way to today guys. Work. I mean, I'm naive. I know there's a lot more to go. And certainly two words are looking ahead all that much. So they know what's coming take your on Wednesday. But I just don't see any team Houston anybody being able to knock this team all four times out of seven. And that's the key coulda team to the rockets. Get a couple of games or achieve peace shirt. I just don't believe there's a team out there right now. Assuming all the rest of the warriors star stay healthy. They can get this team four times out of series. Warriors do need to close this series out there of three one on the clippers..

Let's track the trend. Nick free del earlier this week as he was on the air Waddell. And so. I didn't give Nick credit for that line. Did I? Doc. Which is more important in the NFL or the bears. If you wish multiple-choice Windsor. Kicker the backup quarterback. The Nickelback also known as the slide deck or the running back the slot corner slack right track. I think it would be a chance of player. That's because no one knows what a nickel is anymore, and it was the fifth DB gears anymore. So. I don't know what this could be twenty five twenty five twenty five twenty five Fred where do you vote? Most important in the NFL. I'd say the slap corner. The Nickelback right field goal kicker the backup quarterback and running back, boys. Look into what happened to the bears, no suit. No playoffs after Philadelphia. The field goal kicker pretty hard to vote for that. But I know people hate voting for that. I get one up. Get a bouncer from rush straight kickable running back could win. But. Eleven bring us from the bottom up, which got the fewer fewest rather votes. Most important in the NFL. Okay. With only seven percent same backup quarterback. All right. This would have been my vote. Twenty one percent said Nickelback twenty five percents at running back in almost half. Forty seven percent of the vote said field goal kicker now Chicago. Bias right there. You're more national level. It might be totally different. And that's bringing a guy speaking of a net, global dot it's Jesse.

"Saquon Barkley drafted with the second overall pick by the New York Giants has been named the NFL offense rookie of the year. Barclay beat out Cleveland Browns quarterback and number one. Overall, pick Baker Mayfield to by five points to win the honor. How about that? Saquon Barkley over over bar saquon Barkley over Baker Mayfield that surprise you at all. Yes. Yes. And I know people say well Baker was into started from day one and stuff, but the Cleveland Browns turned a corner for two reasons they fired Hugh Jackson. And they named Baker Mayfield the starting quarterback which. He probably should have been a starting quarterback for from the start. He should have been starting from from the gig, go sake on Berkeley. Yeah. I mean, he's going to be clearly talented running back. But I think the future is brighter for the Cleveland. Browns will Baker Mayfield quarterback Dan with sake are Berkeley at running back. And I think the impact on the game was bigger by Baker than what it was for saquon. So there's another did you have another report to us. It is something else going on because I know that these are just so NFL they're leaking out slowly like the NBA all star team teams. They let them out our good buddy a co worker. Whoa. Just got him like sixteen hours before now. So I mean, let's let's be real those things get out a lot earlier too. So yes, but now Patrick Mahomes offered the player of the year voting easily beat. Drew Brees who was second Mahomes at thirty thirty votes breeze had sixteen.

"Hello and welcome to the collective podcast. I want to just fair warning out front. I've got the flu. It's like the fifth time I've been sick and five months or six fifth time in six months. Daycare germs are real people. That's what I have to tell America. So please bear with me today as best I can and just to make it matters worse. Really? And I'm not looking for sympathy. But just you know to tell the story I was in Vegas all weekend and mostly in bed. You know sick in bed on vacation. So but enjoining us both guys in Los Angeles. Who were at the warriors Lakers game last night. We've got our warriors man on the ground who might as well just be our warriors in LA man on the ground because Nick free del. You bet an LA for like a week. This is like the best road trip of all time. We got here Thursday they instead of flying back and forth from Oakland the warriors decided they just stay they'd make it a family trip. A lot of guys brought their families Klay Thompson brought his dog Rocco for the first all my God. Amazing. There was because gonna make every road trip. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, he he should be all over the place now because I mean is just shooting out of his mind as was the case on Monday. But it's been a fun experience for the warriors to have this whole group here, and it's been a good trip. Steve Kerr pointed out the other day Draymond green got engaged over the weekend. So congrats dream. Wow. So it's just a there's been a lot going on for a warriors group that is playing Kevin Durant lead all year. We'll Kevin Durant. Be the best man that to easy to easy joke. Easy. The weirdest part though on as we as we finish on this this road trip thing there, they have one more day in LA, and then they fly to DC and they go DC Boston indie and then fly home. So this is a little break a little respite. But one of the reasons though is because these are all made for TV stuff because. We're getting into the made for TV games. Now. So reason they had the weekend off was because they had to set up the Martin Luther King day game. And the reason they're getting shipped out to Boston so fast because ABC Saturday night not to pull back the curtain, but that's what's going on. So it to believe that Rocco. Just like bounced up the stairs to the team plane and flew on the team plane. Right. I would think so. Yeah. I think probably carried him up those stairs. But hey, where's the bulldog? V have a out Friday night prior to Cooper gave where we're standing there in Staples. And there's a service bulldog. That has parents are holding sign and it says Hello, Rocco Thompson.

"You can find Jonathan at tweet Jay hood. I am at Dickerson ESPN been talking. A lot of football championship Sunday tomorrow in the NFL, but the big story in the NBA last night involving the Golden State Warriors. And the return of boogie cousins. It's always we never need an excuse to talk to our good friend ESPN NBA insider, Nick free DAL is with us. Now, though he was in Los Angeles covering that game last night for boogies return. He's with us on the shell Pennzoil performance line. So Nick set the scene last night. How was it with boogie back in action and the warriors playing in LA? It was as crazy as it's been all year JD d. Something around the warriors because they're so used to the spotlight and the uproar about anything they do but fan hour and a half before the game. You're standing out there and you used to see it everybody wait around the baseline advance on dot for what steps doing. They were also out there to see exactly why cousins is doing and he's taking shots, and he gets his own upset, and you're going man, this is actually going to happen. So I think there was a lot of a lot of extra energy in buzz in Staples. But the players for a team that has gotten bored at times at the regular season day ramped up for this one, it's wealth. And they were ready to see exactly what what was going to be able to do. And then for him to go out and have some success early on. That is a good good sign for him tried to fit into what they've already gone, so all in all it was a great night for the warriors. And they were really happy that he was able to to produce to produce early on in everything. He did they were cheering him on. It was clear they wanted to make him feel like he was part of the team as much as they could. Nick, boogie cousins said that the warriors are the most Hannah team in the NBA. How would you measure the level of sports eight from the warriors on the road? Yeah. I I don't I don't agree with that. I bet he I don't agree with that. I think they have players who are hated. Notably bookies Ed reminded after he made the switch from Oklahoma City. But that team is not hated that team is still loved by kind of non OEM defense. Be casual sports fans all over the world. I went with this team China last year, they were cheered at every turn. There are a lot more hated teams in my opinion. Notably. He's like the patriots or the Cowboys, they come instantly to mind, then then the warriors are I mean, they have guys maybe the general public doesn't like some of the decisions they've made in the past. But as a group, this is dot eight a eighty T ESPN NBA reporter, Nick free. Dell is our guest John Dickerson hood on ESPN radio and the ESPN app. How do you think boogie fits in long-term, Nick? JD? That's the big question for everything. The words you're trying to accomplish this season. All he is not your long term over the next few years. This is a this is a short marriage. They're all trying to get out of it. The words is trying to get another ring and boogie starting to get max deal or close to it. This summer. As far as the next few months ago, if anybody's guess because as great as all the vibe or last night and everybody was so happy defec- layer foreign water. I've after the game or the I think the words biggest fear is what happens when he gets eight shots, and he has six point. And what happens the first time? He gets couple of teas and he gets caused because he can't control his emotion. Those are all questions that are going to be answering here in the next month. But in the short term, I think they're really just trying to fake it each game at a time. I thought cousin said jumping that was very interesting after the game. He said we have to be really practiced together. Meaning the starting five with Durant and clay instead. That group will grow more cohesive overtime, and they'll learn each other better. But the warriors were already great without him. So cousin fill me the warriors more than beat him. And what happens when he's not getting the touches or or the looks that that he's used to we're gonna find out Nick by process of elimination. Clearly, the Cavs warriors will not be going for the NBA finals and the championship this year. But I wanna ask you who is going to be at least the the second team in the NBA that could be taken on the warriors here in the finals if that's what's going to happen. Yeah. I mean, the the favorite right now that you gotta you gotta believe. Toronto Nick just been solid all season and with Kawhi Leonard in the fold he gives them a whole new dimension that they've never had before. Frankly, I'm still not sold at all as a title contender on the plucks. I really love Janas. And I I like Khris Middleton gain immensely, but those two guys are the only proven talents get a playoff series that I would trust. I think they're still a year or two away from from real primetime. I know a lot of people are counting out Boston. They have not had the first half that many thought myself, included but hoodie, if I were putting the money down right now, I would still probably wait a couple of bucks on Boston outta the east because I believe once they get healthy and Kyrie stays point at the level that he's been playing throughout the season. They have a hell of a good chance to get out of the east because for as much success is Toronto a tad in the race. Regular season. They still never proven that. They can go all the way through a playoff run and get to the final. So I think it's Boston in Toronto. But I'm telling you of watch Golden State all year when they are locked in. And they want to play nobody is going to beat them. And we've seen flashes of it throughout the season. I think we're gonna see more of it in the second half of the regular season knick who's been the NBA MVP in the first half of the season. And why is it James harden? Yeah. Well. I'm looking for anyway dot to give you. But I just don't see it. I mean harden offense pretty a show every night. It hurt. He I think he got so pissed off that people say, oh, he can't do it again and the rocket their dead without falling now without Capella it helped gotta center it helps focus. If hardy all he's got to do it this boy to stay healthy, it's hard. I thought you had a nice place early on Davis is put up some unbelievable numbers when he's been healthy. But it's James harden. The lawyer Celtics last thing with our good friend and veteran NBA reporter, Nick free. Dell who happens to also be a big fan of Coolio?

"Or question marks about your relationship with coach is now that that's on you. So here again Brett Brown issue and Jimmy Butler. That's that's not a good sign. Not only is it not a good sign but Jimmy himself money. I think on top of everything else. And again, like I feel like we just had this conversation with tips. I have always liked Tibbs immensely. I have always like Jimmy immensely for Jimmy to carve out his niche within the league as late first round pick and his back story to get to this point. He gets all the credit in the world. But this is the same kind of tweaking. That's gotta go on with. When you got look in the mirror. Cuba bear. He has got to do a better job fitting into the framework of a team, and it was the same. Attend its cargo. It was the same issues during his year in Minnesota. You just wonder if if he can't bring it all back together. I mean, if that ego is just got outta control Jimmy wants to win he wants to get paid. He wants to trapping superstar. But buddy. As much as I respect Jimmy and don't have much work. You put into his game. He's got the number one guy at a title. He has got to be able to take a step back in that hierarchy. I don't think his ego is going to allow him to do that right now. And until he does he's not going to be the best player for whatever TV lands on. If he stays in Philly. I know there are people that are wondering if he goes to the clippers this summer. I mean, the clippers the built this. Nice young nucleus. Jimmy, who's had all these issues. Leadership wise you last to stop the right the right? Stop for four. I mean, Doc Rivers loves him. But doc, just like gives what's the believe auto given to me, I can fix them. I can make it work kids. What's could say that he could make Jimmy fall into the framework of the timber wolves? It'd be the leader that he needed them. To to have it didn't happen. And you know, this is part of egos and play for coaches. Do it didn't work those are gonna work somewhere else. You know who knows? But if you've had these got documented problems, this is the talk all over the league. And if you're a team watch, you know, you read your mega max money to bring Jimmy at soon to be thirty years old. And with the injury issues that he's said who knows but if you're Jimmy Butler, man, I just just stop worrying about all the stuff off before just play at least for the next few months and see what happens over the summer. You gotta like Milwaukee in Toronto at the top of the east. I don't know if it stays that way for the rest of the regular season knick. But it's interesting because of all the conversations. Yeah, we had we kind of looked at Boston and Philadelphia being one of the, you know, the top two teams possibly in the east, but Jonah Senator Cuco and the great reporting from Alaska Andrews on this almost every time she's covering that bucks team. She talks about the growth of Janas and how the team is coming together. And of course, Toronto with Kawhi Leonard really increases their chances of doing more than what they have in the past past few years, but walking Toronto off to a great start in the east. Milwaukee has been really solid only is is Jaanus growing as you noted booth holder has gotten them in position to succeed in a way in which offensively. That's the way the league is working. And that's why they took out Jason Kidd. And Joe the bucks have this talent. But they weren't living up to expectations. Now, it seems like they are the only issue I have with Milwaukee is aside from your honest and Middleton in a playoff series. I don't trust really anybody else there. I know Bledsoe's has nice start to the season. I'm not buying him being able to win multiple playoff games. I Toronto with Kawhi is extremely dangerous. But the team that we we haven't mentioned yet that I still believe in coming out of the Boston because I don't think they've hit their stride yet. I think they have an exceptional number of talented guys on that roster. And and on top of that. I am a believer in Brad Stevens. I think he is a hell of a coach and he's going to get them in the right position to play. But for an east it's been. Bye, bye, LeBron and the Cavs. And before that the heat for so many years, it is cool to have these different storyline. And if I'm a buck fan, I'm joining you on this is able to bring right now. And I'm hopeful like anyone else that he'd wanna stay? But if you can't win in spring this year with the pieces that you have in place and booed Knowles or in his first year. Oh, I think there is an immense amount of pressure to win at a high level in this postseason because if you don't then you go okay now, what do we do? The bulls are ten and thirty. Man. I I had this to say on the bulls. And you know, you, and I have spent so many hours over the years discussing this team. I it's gonna pass darn packs that way. With the roster building. And boy when sticking with boiling, not making him just the interim for the rest of your past that I mean, I think like so many cargo that it's time to change things up, you know, gone packs, his heart was in the right place. I would never questioned whether or not they wanted to win. They just paid a lot of poor choices last years. I think it's time for a change. But if if we are sitting here a year from right now. And and Mike Ryan store has brought back gar packs, and Jim Boylan is stolen coast. Oh my gosh. I like I go into these MBA arenas all over the place. And because of my ties to the city into that theme. Everybody lasts about the ball in their laughing stock right now, it is a laughing stock around the league the way things have gone on. What has transpired? And if you're fan. I mean, I I I'm just I'm watching what's going on. And if they maintain the status quo after this summer, and they keep gar impacts and boiling employees, if I'm a fan, and I've been sporting team for years and years and all of these fans and invested all this money. Season-ticket wife, the only only option you have is to get out. And that would push me past the point. If you're watching what's unfolding and you've seen the decisions that have been made. And now, they're speaking with boy one. Over a long period of time here at least through this season, potentially the next year. My I wouldn't go towards gone packs anymore. It would be directed straight at Mike Reid store because he is now running the show, I know Jerry still involved with Mike is running the day to day operation, if he makes the call pass this summer to everybody in place all three of those guys bad if you're saying, you just gotta shake your head and kind of walk away. And they're ten and thirty. I mean, real bad. I tried to watch double times. I watched that team. Yeah. I'd say the only two pieces they have long term are Carter marketed, maybe Porter's bobby's games, but he wants to to money as is his right as a free agent. Yeah. I don't think they're gonna go way way too high. So I don't know here. Long term Carter and Markkanen and then whatever happened in the draft lottery. But man, oh, man if they run those guys that tripod jumps back next season. If you're a bull said. Your that's your choice, your choices to stop investing in the product and the way its run. And and if I were a fed after all these years that would be how I would let my voice be heard. I find it funny that people are still coming up to you and MBA arenas asking you about your old girlfriend. What the buck teeth and the bad freckles when you're dating ten every night. The the power of the full. They've always said, and it is true. The power of the ball. All across the world that brand is strong. But when you continue to lose games, not only games with the way, we've always drawn on the floor. They're always. Behind the scenes. When you have all that on top of the losses that that's why there's intrigue I mean, it really I think for a lot of people across the league. It's like a car wreck that they just turn away from people are just like how in the hell is everything day this thing. And that's why we're Mike Reid door in place. He's gotta be the one to change. And if he does it if you're saying, good luck to you. As always, my friend. I appreciate it come on again with us. We appreciate you and your thoughts because we need to talk some NBA.

"I have no sympathy for someone that feels like he's being misrepresented when he refuses to represent himself, and that's ultimately, all we can ever asked. Now, speaking of misrepresentation someone say at different points in Jimmy Butler career, he's been misrepresented. And you know, it's not as bad as as we all wanna make it out to be. It's not as much of an issue Jimmy Butler, the teammate that seems to be a constant conversation. But guess what it's a conversation again. Now as reports have come out the Jimmy Butler has taken to challenging Brett Brown. The seventy Sixers coach and challenging the offense that's being run and channeling in a way that witnesses called disrespectful and beyond normal player coach discourse. And so what we have now is the seventy Sixers team. That went out and acquired Jimmy Butler, and that immediately became a conversation piece Jimmy Butler, stick your long-term is Jimmy Butler going to be the third piece of this perception that you need three great players to contend for a championship. Could it be Jimmy? And now, frankly, I'm looking at it, Sarah and saying if I'm the seventy Sixers why would I want it to be Jimmy how many places does he have to go in disrupt before we just decide that the disruption isn't worth the production. Well, and it depends on how you view Jimmy Butler, and in entirety of his pushing his way out of the timber wolves and two the Sixers that has been really dependent on the person talking, right? Some people say he is an absolute superstar. We've seen him able to finish games there and establish himself as the lead and he's worth this. Even if there's some headaches that come along with it. There are others who have never been as impressed with his plan. His ability to lead a team knowing for sure that Jimmy Butler is not the guy you win a championship. He's one of the guys and he would be the secondary to the real superstar. Whether that's Anthony Davis. Lebron James, whoever it would be. So I think it does matter where in that range. You see him fitting because we know more than anybody. And we're talking about this nonstop in sports that talent is all that matters. You will accept the boogie cousins of the world and the dream owns of the world and the guys who caused issues in the locker room and with the coaches because of their talent. And so I don't think this makes him not desirable. I do think it will be a thing that teams cautioned themselves about if he ends up working his way out of yet. Another city in Philly. I think caution is a great way to put it in. I think even for destinations that we're looking at and saying, hey, how much have we heard about? He's going to go play with an Anthony Davis where he's going to go play with the LeBron. And then I'm looking at it and saying well right now in Philly where they have to young superstars he's coming in and saying he doesn't like the offense because it's not what he needs. I mean is he really going to go to a team? We're we're suddenly he can't be the guy that can decide how the offense is run because that would be the reality. If you're playing. With an Anthony Davis. Or if you're playing with the LeBron on those types of teams, you don't get to come in and say what offense you want to go in and run the offense that those actual superstars dictates. So if you think the Jimmy Butler is the secondary piece to get to a championship in your GM. I don't know that his egos willing to allow him to play the role of a secondary piece if he's coming in even in this situation and saying yet again, there's a problem with how the teams being run around. And we'll say this much our boy Nick free Dowell reported back when it was the Jimmy Butler. Dwayne Wade raisin Rondo younger bulls players tiff going on in Chicago. And as there were more more details coming out about Jimmy's friendship with Mark Wahlberg and going to LA in the off season and very much seeing himself as part of entertainment. I've always been a fan of Jimmy Butler as a guy when he was here in Chicago. I always liked him. I thought he had a great personality. Good guy who worked his way up from being a pretty low draft pick to making his way to match. Player. Unfortunately, what free. Del Senate was that?.
