"Here we see one show. What can we get with THT and Kendrick nunn's salaries combined in trades? I'm laughing at some of the other comments that are on here. What can you get to achieve Kendrick nun salaries combined in trades? So THC and Kendrick nunn together, you're talking about about 15 million in salary, depending on who your trading with, let's assume they're above this salary cap. You can probably take back, what would that be? Like 18 ish that you could bring back off the top of my head. So, yeah, I mean, maybe you can get to 19. You'd be close. You're looking for anybody in that salary range, a lot of players you wouldn't be able to get to, some of the guys that you would think of. Like a buddy heel deal. That doesn't work. THC and Kendrick done, they don't make quite enough. But there's some names out there. I mean, miles Turner would be interesting at 18 million. That's a guy that you could get to. There's a few players out there. The question is who's on the block, who actually becomes available and then with the Lakers add to it because right now, THT, most teams don't see them as having a lot of positive value, if any, and then Kendrick Don didn't play last season, so he's just going to be salary. So you're essentially just sending out contracts, 15 ish million interested contracts, what can you do to get talent for that to get value for that? You're going to have to attach picks and things to it. So that's where it becomes a big question mark. What are you willing to add to THT and Kendrick nunn to get a guy that you think is going to help you? And before the chat starts mentioning, we should get miles Turner. I don't think that's going to happen. Especially because they traded sabonis at the deadline in a deal which they absolutely ripped off the kings. But I don't think that's going to happen, but miles Turner would be an ideal. We were talking about this earlier, miles Turner would be an ideal fit next to Anthony Davis because he can stretch the floor and knock down three as well. Also protect the rim on the defensive end as well. So that's kind of the mold of player if you want 80 at the four to slot next to Anthony Davis unless he fixes that jump shot which is. Somebody said Dudley for a head coach. I like Jared Dudley a lot. I don't know if he's maybe he's spent a season as an assistant coach in Dallas, but I don't know if that's the last I talked to Jared Dudley. He was going back and forth. There was a couple of years ago. He was going back and forth between coaching and being in a front office. He knew he wanted to be involved in basketball once he was done playing, but he wasn't sure which path he wanted to go down yet. So it's not like rondo I feel like has been locked in on being a coach for years now. I mean, not decades. A Jared Dudley has kind of been floating between ideas more. But I would be opposed to him at some point being the head coach. I don't know. And he would be better to answer this, but I don't know if he's if he feels like he's quite there yet. Yeah, and I honestly think. Oh my gosh, we could pluck Jared Dudley as an assistant next year. I would love that as well. A head coach, I'm not sure yet. For the reasons you mentioned. Yeah. All right, let's do one more, and then we will call it an afternoon. We will head off to the weekend..

"I've seen fans saying trade it, then he Davis for him. I personally wouldn't do that, but I've been seeing Lakers fans who have said that. I know he's been held in high regard by Lakers fans for a while, UCLA guys, there's part of it there. But yeah, I don't see a path to doing that though. I mean, look, it would be great if they got Zach lavine. I don't see any realistic way to make that happen. Last time Lakers fans wanted a UCLA guy, we picked him over a guy from duke. So that's fun. It's a Jayson Tatum reference there for everybody who's unclear, talking about the Lonzo Ball pick over Jason Tatum. That would still still stings. One pick before Jason, right? The right before, right before. And in fact, the Celtics because it was such a lock that the Lakers were taking Lonzo that they traded back to three. They trained it back. Knowing they could get Tatum because they knew the Lakers would never take them. Oh my God. Mistakes were made, mistakes were made. Harvey holliman said the impact of the vocal firing is overblown. It might be. And I hope it is. I hope this is something that, at first, ruffles some feathers, but as time goes by, maybe it doesn't matter as much. So I hope you're right about that, Harvey. Until Frank Vogel comes out with a documentary and then we all have to relive what happened on that baby. I don't think Frank vocals come back coming out with a documentary, but rumors and things like that could leak and then off you go. All right, we do need to take a quick break so I can talk about one of our sponsors. That is prize picks. If you ever heard about prize picks, it's daily fantasy made easy. I.

"On off ball. I would like to see that. I think quin Snyder leads to that. But that can also be pretty taxing on whoever you're primarily primary ball handlers. You know, we've seen a lot of the discourse around the jazz being that Donovan Mitchell kind of burned out. People questioning whether or not it was effort, but other people would bring up the point like that could be running quin Snyder system all sees a long acting as kind of both the initiator and the score can be pretty taxing. And that got me thinking about LeBron, I mean, he's kind of both for the Lakers right now. Is that really so there's some things that I think that would need to be tweaked if there's some truth to that. Yeah. Speaking of the jazz, oh boy, here we go. So last night, after the jazz got eliminated, dawn of a Mitchell was asked, are you do you want to stay? Put the Utah Jazz or are you going to ask for a trade? What fans of that particular team what jazz fans wanted to hear was, no, reports that I might want to leave are crazy. I'm staying. I don't want to go anywhere. I want to be here. I love it here. I want to spend my whole career here. That's what they want to hear. That's not what he said. That's not what he said at all. He said, I need like a week to think about it. Now, he was explaining that in the moment having just lost the game, that hurts, that's what's on his mind. He's not thinking about the future. That kind of stuff. He was more diplomatic than just saying, oh, I need some time to think about whether or not my ass for a trade. But still, he had the opportunity to kind of buy in again to Utah and he did not do that. Maybe in a week, he comes back and says, oh, okay, I cleared my head. I'm good. No, I don't want to go anywhere. Maybe. But there have been rumblings around the NBA for a while now that Donovan Mitchell could be asking for a trade from the Utah Jazz. Rudy Gobert. Another name that could likely end up on the trade block, maybe Rudy Gobert is dealt in order to placate Donovan Mitchell. We'll see. But the jazz being a team that could make some major moves, the Lakers could potentially get in on some of those deals. I don't think the Lakers have the pieces to go get Donovan Mitchell. I think someone else would outbid them. But maybe acting as a third team, that could be a good thing for the Lakers. Another team trying to make big moves because I think you're going to need pieces out there on the market in order for the Lakers to get stuff done. No, for sure. And even if it's helping in also by the way, the jazz would have to implode in that team. Like something has to change in Utah. Just the constant trial and error. And this is why I do started to keep going back to Quinton. I do feel bad for going to a certain extent. That roster is not the best constructed roster. Your second highest paid player is not Kimberly contribute that much offensively. I also have maybe a few lobs and offensive rebounding..

"I've got a lot of people that are commenting on these potential hires. Look, here's the thing. I've got people saying, our Jackson should be getting an interview, all these other people. Look, and I know a lot of people think different ways about Mark Jackson, but yes, give them an interview. You leave no stone unturned. Whether it's whether you see Marc Jackson as a real candidate or not, depending on how much credit you give him for the warriors teams or was that Steve Kerr coming in. Look, you give him an interview. Again, if you are the Lakers, you cast a wide net and I'm expecting, look, we're just hearing. Just hear it. Darvin ham's name pops up, right? We've heard quin Snyder. We've heard Nick nurse. There have been a few other names that have been connected. Steve Clifford. We've heard Mike Brown, but I think we're going to hear a lot more names connected to the Lakers. This is not going to be solved overnight. It's not like tomorrow, watch now it'll probably happen. It's not like tomorrow. They're going to pop up and announce who their new head coaches. So I think this is going to be a long process. There's going to be a lot of people that are mentioned in connection to this job. In number one, because it's the Lakers, but number two, because I think that it's a good thing. If they leave no stone unturned, you interview a lot of people and you have to consider all options because the most important thing this off season is that regardless of what you do, you get it right. You have to bat a thousand this off season. I've said it a bunch of times, and that includes the coaching higher decision. In addition to the personnel moves, you have to get this right. Where does Mark Jackson rank for you amongst potential Lakers hires? Assuming Nick nurse is out of the picture. Assuming that we're with Mark Jackson right for you. I mean, it depends is dock in there. All these other coaches that were kind of waiting to see if they ultimately get let go. He's on my short list of guys that I'm interested in talking to. Is he number one on that list? No, I think there was enough smoke behind problems within the warriors organization when Mark Jackson was there that you got to be a little bit concerned about that. Now LeBron, there have been some rumors that he might be, you know, kind of pushing for Marc Jackson. Okay, maybe that gives it a little bit more credibility there. I'm not dismissing it out of hand. I'm not just saying no, this just no way it's not happening. I do question why, if he's been going after head coaching jobs, why would he have been passed upon so many times already? That leads you to wonder if there's something else there. But again, if I'm the Lakers, I'm not just dismissing anybody really. I'd like to bring them in, give them an interview and see what's there and find out. What would he do with this team and move forward from there? And again, get that kind of input. I think whoever the Lakers hire, I'm going to try to give them the benefit of the doubt. Obviously I've got my favorites, but I think I want to try to give them the benefit of the doubt.

"Defensive coach and they gave me a bunch of dudes are 33 and up who can't guard worth anything. Yep, I want that job. Why would he want that? So I do think it's more. I'm sure the Lakers want them. I think Quinn's a good head coach, but like you mentioned, does Quinn want the Lakers job, especially seeing how they handled the Frank Vogel firing. And he could always go back to Utah like you mentioned. It's more his decision at this point. And then the rumors about San Antonio, Greg Popovich has been retired officially yet, but that's on the table. It pops as I'll go one more year. Quinn, he could just take a year off if he really wanted to. So obviously the Lakers want Quinn. I think that would be a smart move. And I think it's like a coach, but like I mentioned, why would Quinn honestly after how they handled the Frank Vogel situation want the Lakers job? And I think it's different than Darwin, 'cause darvin ham hasn't had, he's not a head coach yet. He's never been a head coach. So for him, this is shiny new toy. I could be the Lakers head coach. Instead of being an assistant. So I think it's different. I agree with you that it's two different things. If you're looking at the Lakers situation, though, from the perspective of a head coach or I'm sorry, I'm an assistant coach, somebody who doesn't have a head coaching job in the league right now. We know that jazz want to keep quin Snyder. If he wants to be a head coach in the NBA next season, he's going to be a head coach in the NBA next season. The question is, which team does he want to coach for? The same is not true of darvin ham. If he wants to be a head coach, there's only a few possibilities. That's Sacramento, Charlotte, and the Lakers. Maybe the jazz of Quinn Snyder decides he's going to leave. That's it. Those are your options..

"I'm just excited. I've been around the darvin ham train since January, I feel so kind of celebrating even though it's just an interview, but heck yeah, man. I mean, this has been the one that you've been in. You've been from day one. The second the Lakers coaching job opened up, you've been saying DARPin ham, this has been your guy, why is this such a big deal and why do you have him? I'm assuming Nick nurse is ahead of him on your list, right? Okay. But we also consider Nick nurse to probably be not that realistic. So aside from Nick nurse, why is darvid Hampton at the top of your list and port that we talk about this? Now that the Lakers are actually requesting to interview him. Yeah, man darvin ham is he's been Mike Boone holder's right hand man since he was with him in Atlanta, but he actually followed head coach Ben holzer some Milwaukee. He's just been instrumental..

"Big time contract that the bus family would probably bestow you with. There's no shot of that at all. No, Jay Wright, his retirement was for his coaching career and he's going to spend family time now. I could see him going in transitioning into doing on air work for either one of the networks. But as of right now, his full his full mindset is on his family. The Lakers will have an expansive search. I do believe there was interest to a degree in J Wright from the Lakers, but he is not going to entertain the NBA from everything I've been told and the Lakers search will have to move on to other candidates. Nick nurse is a significant name as far as when you look at guys that they would want to go get established, established coaches out there in the marketplace. Nick nurse crosses every team's former championship coach can get the most out of that group in Toronto and you would hope be able to challenge you in LA. The only problem is Nick nurses two years left on his deal and any type of getting a guy Nick nurse would have to mean that you're either doing a trade or nurse is somehow able to get out of his deal. So it's not a straightforward as getting one of the assistant coaches around the league or a coach right now that isn't employed. So I do think the Lakers will take their time. I think it'll be one of the more slower coaching searches right now, but it's a slow period. When you look at the two job openings right now in the Lakers and the king, I think both teams will be methodical in their approach. Sam Cerrone are here lead NBA rotter senior NBA writer for the athletic and stadium here on the rich eisen show. What is happening in the Lakers facility right now? Decision making, roster building, coaching search, give me the whole soup to nuts, best you can tell me right now. I believe what's going on now is game planning for the off season, right? And their first order of business is figuring out who the head coach of this roster will be. And so I think when you look at rob pelinka, their general manager, you look at Kurt rambis, who's an adviser there. Those will be two of the names that of course will be part of the decision making process along with Jeannie buss in ownership and the rest of that group and that's their first order of business. Roster wise, of course, the Russia Westbrook situation looms as well. This off season, what happens within a $47 million player option that sides could ultimately end up having a discussion in terms of which trade possibility might make sense? Is there a buyout possibly that might make sense? I think that's, I think that's still has some work to be done as far as getting to that point. But overall, there's no question the first order of business trying to figure out which direction you want to go with your head coach. Do you want to go with more of a veteran? Do you want to go with do you want to go with an assistant coach? Are you willing to pay top dollar the 8 9 $10 million range? When I talk to prospective coaching candidates in the space, it's like the Lakers going to be in that mode of paying the top dollar and being a significant player in the space. And I mean, these are all questions internally. They're going to have to figure out in terms of what direction they want to go on. Well, I mean, there's a couple of things you just said. I want to follow up on. The first thing is any coach. You mentioned Nick nurse moments ago, the current raptors head coach with two years left on his contract for him to go down a road. Let's just say this. Just for him and specific going down a road, wouldn't he want to know before taking the job how much longer LeBron plans to stay there and whether Westbrook is something he's going to have to for the lack of a phrase to deal with. Wouldn't that have to be decided before a coach takes such a leap of faith to try and get out of a contract and then forget about the dollars and cents, which I'll get to in a second. Just give me give me your thoughts on that. Those questions will have to be a part of the discussion. For sure. And I think that that is something that will come up no matter who the coaching candidate was the future of a LeBron James. What's the brussel Westbrook, Anthony Davis? LeBron James has an extension opportunity coming up in August. And I expect that to be more of a discussion for the summer. But with one year left on his deal, there's not going to be a pressure point where the Lakers are going to apply on him. It's going to be a discussion that's going to go into July and August. So until then, I don't think there's going to be much clarity on that. But for sure, the futures of these significant players is going to be a part of the discussion. And then why wouldn't the Lakers pay all that money, right? I mean, we just saw what they're worth from, what was that Forbes came out and gave that? There's no cap on what you pay the coach. Well, I want the Laker, why are the Lakers suddenly known as an organization that might not pay for the coach that they can the best one that they can get? What gives on that front? I think that is more just coaching perspective candidates having that question, right? And I think you think when you think of the Knicks and you think of the Lakers, you obviously think of there's no cap. But when you think of a Nick nurse, I'm totally making $8 million a year on his contract in Toronto and when you're thinking about a coach that's going to leave a perspective position, you would want, you know, obviously more than $8 million. Again, that's a significant salary. That would put Nick nurse at one of the most, he's already one of the upper Echelon paid coaches, but you might have to get to that 9, ten, $11 million type of Mark for him to leave that situation. So I think these are just questions that are asked when you look at the perspective candidates that are potentially out there. On the rich eisen show, the athletic and stadium, so in our final moments together, your Ben Simmons reporting back at game four, if he can play game four, why not a game three, right? I mean, they're down O two. This is it. They made this trade for him. We're seeing harden, even though he fouled out on a team that's one step away from being in the second round already. Why game four knocking through? What do you have for me? I think just allowing him to have even more opportunity to get practice time in and this is a guy who hasn't played in almost a year June 2021 and so for him to beat them out there of course you want to make sure he's rolling on all cylinders as possible and he's done a couple days of full court scrimmage this week. I've heard he's come out well from both. He's feeling good and so as long as that progress continues tomorrow, the nets are expected to practice. The assumption is that that will be another opportunity for bentham to have a scrimmage day and you have three scrimmages under your belt Monday, Wednesday, Friday, use the weekend to continue to ramp.

"I really liked the story and I really liked kind of the supposition it made at the end or even towards the top was just the idea that the grizzlies play so slow relative to everyone else in the league that win games slow down the grizzlies are already used to it. So it's not really the game changing for them. It's just like a continuation of what they already do. There's a lot of that in these raptors from a playoff standpoint just from I use this phrase when I tweeted about the raptors a couple of games I was watching and there's last week. They're beautifully weird. They're just such an odd thing. There's limbs everywhere. I guess I shouldn't say that. There are arms everywhere and made it sound like we were talking about like a war or something. Anyway, it's arms everywhere. It's just a long team, which I mean obviously that's not news to anyone, but particularly I think you see it even more. At least yesterday they had malachi Flynn playing, but most nights where they don't have been like, okay, so they're not using a point guard at all. Instead, they're just rolling out there with a bunch of dudes that are 6 9, like basically all of them. In games where they don't have Malcolm Flint or Fred van bleed, everybody in their lineup is 6 5 or taller. And then beyond that, I think after Gary Trent, everyone is like 6, 8 or taller. So it's just a team of everybody has length. Everybody's got a 7 foot wingspan. It's impossible to get around them easily. It's hard to shoot over them. And because they're forced into it between Scottie Barnes and siakam. And other guys, everybody, you know, that you've got guys that are handling the ball that are all like LeBron sized as well. Which just creates like they could see over everybody. Had a couple triple doubles in the last few weeks, which, you know, before last week he'd had one in his career, he had two in the last week. So there's just a lot that I would not look forward to about them playing against them. Guys are starting to seemingly be more comfortable. Is hitting threes and has the confidence to hit them defensively their nightmare. Nick nurse, part of what I was saying before about the Memphis example, the idea that they seem prepared for the playoffs, the playoffs are responding to kind of like the situation you're in as far as what the other team is doing as far as an injury happening as far as foul trouble. This team has kind of had to experiment all year just because injuries because Nick nurse enjoys coaching a weird team that Masai ujiri is put together because Nick nurse is going to kind of throw the kitchen singing you from his own standpoint in the middle of the game in the middle of a quarter..

"Yes, I was born ready. How about the 76ers of Philadelphia? I guess the raptors of Toronto. Love it. Tell me more. I like whatever Nick nurse is cooking up there. Is it even legal to bring whatever he's cooking up there across the border? I'm not sure. The raptors essentially what I want to see as if the raptors go small, place yakum or precious at the 5, switch everything and just drive the 76ers nuts. I think that would actually be a really interesting series. I'm obviously picking Philly, but I think the raptors could really push for 6 or so they're limit. Why is it obvious? That you would pick Philly. I just think it's, did I say obvious? I think I don't think you could pick against hard and indeed in the first round and raptors because I did have the two best players in that series. And embiid is going to get 20 to 20 times a night. Can I just say, are we sure that James Harden's better than Pascal siakam? Are we sure? Are we sure? It's closer than it's ever been. It's closer than it's ever been, but I'm giving hard in the edge. Yeah, I just think it would be a really fun series and I want to see what Nick nurse would do given all that time to prepare and focus on just Philly. You know, what kind of defense is he coming up with, et cetera? And stylistically, they're just so different. So I think it would be a fascinating clash of styles. And I think it would be a real kind of test for embiid's dominance. And one that I think he's capable of passing, but I just think it would be really interesting. I'm with you. This would be, this would be great..

"When the olympics start will be the most talented team in tokyo. Hands down no question. Most talented team in tokyo with the roster that they have but this is like a five alarm fire right now howard. This loss to nigeria. I don't care if they win the rest of these pre olympic games which will take place through next sunday. This has to make you nervous if you're a fan of the team because not only is it this. The loss to nigeria. But you go back two years ago at the world championships where you had a us team. That was good. Didn't have probably better team now than they were back in two thousand nineteen but all nba players. They finished seventh. They've been seventh at the world championships. You have the seventh-place finish the loss of nigeria. How concerned are you howard beck about. Usa basketball. It's just an exhibition game. Chris oh no no. It's not just an exhibition game. Stop this team was thrown together over the last however many weeks they had what like three practices. I think i'll ever. Us team is thrown together. What are you talking about. There's no team. There's no no mid season practices for usa basketball. No but the nigerian team has been practicing. What i'm saying is some of the play in the nba though wants win the nba nba. A few of them play in the nba but that team has had time together more so than the team. Sorry brown coaching. that team. That i missed was that a facsimile of mike brown on the bench all season long. What what are we talking about. The warriors have been out for like two months kris k. Okay so two months. that's what matters. That's that's the number three three practices. Also they're still missing. I believe at least three guys because they're playing in the finals right now. Booker middleton chris paul get it. Yes not chris. Ball's not playing a holiday with the the what holland is your holiday. Those those guys will matter especially given that middleton and holiday are to the better perimeter defenders that that team. Usa has and if you look at the rest of team usa's roster. I don't see a ton of great defenders. There there are a few. I think those three guys by the way are going to be exhausted by the time they get to. They may well be. They may will be so. We're going to judge them. Judging when their whole judge when the games matter to strange to me like we don't judge nba teams based on the preseason but we judge team usa based on these exhibition games. That they do going into international competition. I feel like it's thirty. One point favorites. Why why is there betting line on a freaking exhibition better training but a little league baseball. Now country degenerates damn right. I didn't mean chris i'm with. Let's go monday. Nigeria money line. I just. I can't get too excited about this. If they lose the rest of the exhibitions does that mean something. Yeah that might be alarming if they're if they're still struggling to find some cohesion. That could be alarming. But i mean the talent is obviously their talent alone doesn't win on the international stage in style of game is different team ball matters. Shooting matters like yeah. There's a bunch of budget stuff that comes into play. But i i find the panic over this loss or at least the outcry to be a little bit much. So you don't take into account the seventh-place finish in two thousand nineteen. I mean that to me. It's the it's not just as game. The totality of it right. Like and i don't know howard like so in the early two thousands the world kind of caught up to the us ninety to ninety six thousand us. Gold maps then comes the two thousand two world championships in indianapolis and that's seven. The place finish was one of the worst worst outcomes in at least recent usa history. They got it together after that. They hired jerry colangelo. They bringing mike chef ski. They get their act together. Two thousand six two thousand eight then. They run off. Three consecutive years are three consecutive cycles of gold. Medals is argon. Made that like the world's caught up again that somewhere along the way and the last four or five years. The rest of the world has once again caught up usa basketball. I'm trying to understand this. I mean that's close games in those olympics cycles. No question about it. But i can't imagine the oh eight. Twelve or sixteen team losing nigeria. I can't exhibition or otherwise. I can't see it happening. No team and the and the one that followed it were built around like lebron koby. Carmelo enjoying wait. I mean that that groups at another level like as good as this group is that we're seeing right now as talented as they are after k. D. tatum's really good damian. Lillard is great. I mean come arbit- tatum. Bill lillard auto bio levin. Draymond dream ends up there in years but one has won some things. Jeremy grant jeremy grant zach living out of like. These are guys who have done anything in the nba yet. But they're all stars most they're they're also but are they to level of lebron kobe now but do you think is that what you're saying then is that what you're saying to be at the level you need to have like i'm saying the crop to win. I'm saying that if we're going to start comparing the twenty twenty one team to the twenty eight a two thousand eight two thousand twelve teams there is. There is not an equivalent right now. Lebron kobe laurent cobaine weight. And plus what we what. We called olympic. Mellow like carmelo. Didn't have the success in the nba. That some of his teammates did but carmelo in terms of talent level and certainly has resume like that group was at a whole other level. That group is a different level than jason. Tatum bam outta bios. Zach levine. Okay so not saying that you necessarily should have to have that level of time firepower to win an exhibition game against nigeria. Or anybody else. But i am saying comparing usa to itself different iterations of team usa. This one is not that one. This is not as dominant group as the ones we saw in eight and two thousand twelve. It just isn't what do you do like. What's the solution here. Like i mean i jerry. Colangelo deserves an enormous amount of credit for rebuilding that program when it was at. Its nadir mitra chefs. He comes in enormous amount of credit for what they did. But as we sit here in twenty twenty one like it's almost to me howard like the usa basketball rebuilding. The program became cool. Like lebron wanted to do it. Chris paul like dwayne wade. These guys wanted to do it and then they did it. And i think playing for usa basketball didn't become quite as cool as it was fifteen years ago. Like is that what has to happen like does not need to have like a fifth place finish in tokyo for all of a sudden the next generation of a-list stars wherever that may be in two thousand twenty four to come back into the mix and is that the only way this team can win. I mean i think we need to pay attention to the overall context like obviously one. These olympics were supposed to happen a year ago. They're delayed a year because of covid got durant out of it though like that right. It's questionable whether these the olympic should be happening at all still but along the way because of these back to back brutal seasons and everything else like team. Usa doesn't have james harden right now. Doesn't have anthony davis because of the injury doesn't have steph curry doesn't have kyrie irving doesn't have lebron kawai again. If your argument is that the second or third tier it sounds like sounds like insulting. Somehow but if you're saying that the next wave believe after those guys should still be good enough to dominate on the world stage. Maybe but if the point is that the team as best are they still. Are they still able to win. Gold fairly easily. Your probably but a bunch of them aren't on this team right now because of injuries and just the stress of the last year or two so this this is not necessarily representative of the best of the best right now. It just isn't and yes. They should still be good enough to win. Yes the world has caught up to some extent. No the the group that at nigeria's put it put out there last week. Does not leap off the page improbably. Us should've still want it. But again i exhibition game after like three practices. Let's see what happens with the rest of this. This schedule out brought mellow back. I mean he's not what he was four years ago. Eight years ago twelve years ago but the guy knows how to play international basketball. He might have sat. maybe. I guess. I didn't really. I assume that he just want to keep. He didn't kind of like four formerly re retire from the olympics. But it'd be pretty much says like i'm done like lebron kinda did to get talked into it. I feel like. I don't know if i was if i was the usa team would try really hard to get carmelo blake because his style. Whatever it is to the nba is perfect for the national basketball. He's a really good or national basketball player. On this subject damian lillard. He spoke for the first time. Since the hiring of chauncey billips. Only listen to what little had to say about his future in portland. I'm prepared to go in and do my job every year. Like hopefully we make strides over direction and could become a better team a new coach notice. That's where i am. What soured it sounds like. Lillard is at least nominally on board with going back to the blazers. But if i'm a team out there with assets. I don't listen to that response and say well it's over damian. Lillard is back on the same page with the portland trailblazers. If i'm a team with assets i hold onto those assets because it feels to me like the blazers might be one like sixteen to start from blowing that whole thing up with louis mccollum on the way out the door so get the sense now. That seems more likely than not that damian lillard at blazers training camp. He's in ablaze uniform. He starts the season with the portland trailblazers. But if it doesn't work with chauncey billips early and you get close that trade deadline. It wouldn't surprise me at all to see portland decide. Look we've got a. We've got to do something here and opened the door for damian lillard trade. What do you think. I think that nothing has changed. I think that his remarks last week because he sounded a little bit lukewarm. Or just you know you hear one of two things. Well you want to hear one thing if you're a portland trail blazers fan or if you're just looking for any indication that lillard is all in your you want to hear him say listen. I know things are rough right now. But i'm all in you know this is. This is where. I want to be you to repeat all the usual talking points that you hear from players in his position and that we've heard from bradley beal that we used to hear from james harden houston. Which is a win in phil in city fill in the blank with the city. I want to win here. I don't wanna go somewhere else. You know we're going to get this right blah blah. He didn't go down the usual list. And so i think it left open. Some interpretation but getting has changed like the disappointment was clear when the season ended. Some of the things have happened since including obviously the the the train wreck away they went about the the coaching search and lillard. Being caught in the crossfire. There at feeling heat from fans about chauncey billips being selected and so. I don't think we should expect he's going to be rah. Rah right now The trailblazers have a lot of work to do. But we also have not even hit the summer yet. Like there's the draft hasn't happened yet. Free agency hasn't happened yet. There's there's a lot of work to be done. And i think if you're damian lillard which you're probably doing is internally saying here's what i need to see happen externally saying you know what let's let's wait and see i mean you see. He can't he can't say publicly the same things that he's telling say neal o'shea right about what the the state of the roster i i would think that there are some very impassioned debates or discussions being held behind closed doors about what they need to get this thing right and if they can't get it right the he might shift is his stance about staying there long term. But that hasn't happened yet that we know of. What do you think the most interesting potential conversation is amongst players over these next four weeks like i'm kind of curious what jason tatum bradley beal talk about. Tatum and beal close friends dating back to their highschool days both went to the same high school bill with something of a mentor to jason. Tatum actually got him involved with his trainer. Drew hanlin which helped. Tatum elevate his his personal skills and they've talked about how happy they are to be playing together. Played the all star game together for the first time beal last year of his contract. Like you know we've seen these conversations yield real tangible conversation. You'd like to be a fly on the wall on for any of these guys in the next couple of weeks. Yeah i mean look we. We have a history now going back over a decade. If we're to believe that the that the heels were formed in part through team usa activities. You know which is true which is true. That's that's yielded an extra things guy. You know guys who you mentioned. Tatum and bill because they were already friends but guys also become friends through this experience right and then they start getting the ideas about playing together. Like oh hey. This is a lot of fun. Let's do this again in the nba. So there's i'm i'm sure some of that is is happening. It always does. Who else in that group. I mean man. If any of these guys that'd be trying to recruit bam out a bio but he's too early in his in his contract with miami to pry him loose from there And you know the heater still a pretty potent team but you know jimmy butler is up there in miles and outta bios future won't necessarily be there forever. That's the way it goes in the nba. I think tatum has the potential to be like the biggest recruiter. They're like he's about to start the first year of his max level extension. He can recruit bill. But like you can also does damian lillard like. It's great to play in boston. I love it here. Answer some questions of my have a playing on the east coast for the first time. Like i think data might be boston's best asset at this point. Yeah again some of this comes down to bradley. Beal's coming up to that point where he has the leverage to task out because of his contract lillard under contract for several more years and so he's not in that position. So what if it says. Like i need to go like. I don't foresee the blazers being no finish your contract. Just don't see it. i think right. And they would work with him on a deal to sure but directing it is harder so beal can use the leverage of his free agency to say well if you send me to team x. I'm not gonna resign there. Which then blows up that deal and he can direct himself to the team he really wants to be at lillard would have a harder time to doing that. Because he doesn't have free agency looming two to play that card. Yeah well i encourage any reporter. That's in tokyo tatum. Beal and lillard talking to each other. Just take a picture and then let the internet go wild crazy because it will unquestionably last thing for you. Howard the breaking news. This week in the coaching ranks. Is that jamal moseley is headed to orlando moseley of course last with dallas. A really well respected assistant coach there. Who was a candidate for that. Maverick job before. It went to jason kidd my immediate reaction to that higher howard beyond i think being an excellent choice for orlando is that we're gonna look at at moseley and jason kidd on parallel tracks. The next couple of years moseley. There was a strong case to be made that he should have been elevated to that head. Coaching job he'd been considered for other head coaching jobs. Before most recently in new york he had by all accounts a great relationship with luka doncic i understand bringing kit in he's got a history with dallas and as riccar lau said publicly having a player that played the game like kid and having a player that plays the game like don-shik make some sense to pair those two guys together. But there's always going to be as i watched these two situations unfold. I'm gonna wonder you know. Did the mavericks make the right choice. Leading jamaa moseley go and bringing jason kidd in and there's so many variables in this the first being at orlando's in step one or maybe even steps zero of a massive rebuild right there in the negatives right now. I think there's still maybe more fat to trim on that roster before they really bottom out. Yeah and you know you talk about trying to build around. You know markelle foltz. And and jonathan isaac jonathan isaac for so long. They're getting hurt and he's a great player but they've loved writing in a weird way john stays healthy. He's still more of a complementary store right like he's he's a potentially defensive player of the year at some point. He's not a guy who you're building an offense around though and marquel foltz okay. He he got himself back on track in orlando. He has a career now where he didn't have one but he's not a foundational building block. Come on like that's crazy so the roster doesn't have much talent jamal. Moseley's is coming into a situation. Which a lot of first time head coach is committed to which is all right. There's a lot of work to do so You're gonna have to do a lot of development. You're going to have to take a lotta lumps in the win loss column. It's gonna be rough going for the first year or two or maybe three. Let's see how they can get things going. But you know as it has been a certain other like kenny. Atkinson came to look a completely hopeless situation in brooklyn but was known as development coach in atlanta. And sure enough. Everybody who went there. Joe harris spencer. Dinwiddie jared allen versus lower. First round picks. Guys who were you know whether they were reclamation projects whether they were low picks everybody seems to get better the second they went to brooklyn and play kenny atkinson and his staff congenial. Moseley have the kind of effect in orlando can the front office. Get him to kind of guys. That will thrive in that in that kind of environment and carve out careers from cells and carbon identities. Jamal moseley has a lot going for him. And we've heard like many great things about it but we often hear great things about assistant coaches who don't end up panning out so i always. We have to caution ourselves on these things. Because i thought. Brian shaw was gonna be a great head coach and he was. Everybody loved him all the players sung as praises when he was associate head coach under frank. Vogel indiana he goes to denver probably just the wrong guy at the wrong time but he hasn't had another shot since then but that went really badly. Brett brown was really great in in some respects for the for the early years of the process and then suddenly. It seemed like they'd hit some sort of ceiling. Eager kokoschka of had been talked about for years is a great assistant. Coach didn't work out. Swells head coach in phoenix. David dale bumpy ride in memphis and then disastrous in new york. We just don't know like luke walton. Another example like there are plenty of coaches who as their when their assistance. We hear and see the best of them and then you know some of them be go on it and have great success coaches. I mean tyler has been fantastic. Mike malone has been fantastic money williams. Nick nurse dwayne casey a lotta longtime assistance. Get their shot and then you know it. It works out in a dozen. It's all contextual. It's all just the opportunity you have the thing for dallas is. They went with a guy who has experienced jason kit. That experience was not necessarily good experience. Like i think most people around the would look at what he did in milwaukee in brooklyn and say. I'm going to steer clear. Maybe you'd rather have the the unproven. Jamal moseley versus the somewhat proven jason kidd but. I don't think we'll know what the right choice was there for a while yet. Because it's it's gonna take some time before we can evaluate moseley as head coach. I maybe jason kidd learned something in two years as an assistant. I mean that happens. You know working with lebron for entire for two entire seasons working under frank vogel maybe picked up some things that'll be useful to him as a head coach. Moseley to me. The key is giving him time. Like you've got to be committed to moseley for a minimum. I think of three years and more likely five years. And then you see what you have in head coach. You mentioned gore. I mean it's worked out for phoenix. Absolutely but i do think he got hosed out there i mean he only had one year on the job and that year was without deandra aiden chris. Paul had devon booker of course but that was not a good team that he was coaching. There i gotta get moses the because you want to see what the guy can do when you put that team in a position to win a great example to me is james breglio in charlotte. I mean berea. Was one of those guys assistant coach elevated to head coaching position in charlotte. Not great first couple of years there but when he was given players and chance to win he did pretty well. I mean up until lamelo ball went out the horns were really good team and i think they will be a good team. Going forward in part because of the borrego is a pretty good coach. I want to see this magic team. Invest heavily in jamal. The you're the guy developed these guys and we'll keep you around no matter what the won loss record says until you get a chance to win then you judge like brett brown six or seven days since brett brown left but i can see the for letting go of brett brown. I mean they had a talented team and to a degree the underachieved. But you've got to let the coach get a roster on that level before you really make any decisions about whether they can coach. Yeah well and that's the thing about. This is what set up says apart. I think the good organizations from the bad ones is that you you decide when you choose a guy. Especially if he's a longtime assistant not a guy with head coaching experience. And you've said we believe in this guy. This is somebody who's got a great trekker record as an assistant. We're going to first opportunity. It's your obligation to when you say investment. Yeah it's time investment. It's a give them all the tools to succeed. Give him the time to succeed. You've decided you believe in him. So stand behind that have the conviction to stand behind that and take some bumps along the way you know maybe maybe memphis and or the knicks should have stuck with david physed longer. You know we had heard nothing but great things about fiscal coming out of miami. Initially we may yet you know. Find out that he. He can be great head coach in the right situation. Maybe those worth rights situations. He might be one of those guys though. I love physios and assist one of those guys. Though the just the temperament is always important. Like the government like memphis yet. Some battles with market assault didn't work out your plus new york. You just might be one of those guys that doesn't have the right temperament to be is based on what we've seen a memphis in new york might be better suited for these ranks but if he succeeds in l. a. I think he'll get another chance right. Maybe i think the point being though that if you as an organization have identified a guy instead he we believe in him then. Okay then believe in him. Stick with them and make sure you've given them enough tools to succeed Is it a pulling the plug at the first sign of of struggle and that's what happens in the nba. too often. is that seems panic. You know the fans turn. There's some minor flare up. Oh the coach and player got into it. Whatever it may good teams that can happen on as well. And it's it's just. It's the way franchises. React so you have to know whether or not the guy is is is right and then stick with them. And so yeah. Let's jomo's should get a nice long here. She got a ton of latitude in orlando given where they are as an organization given the state of that roster. Yeah i agree. Howard enjoy milwaukee looking forward to hearing the conversation with the lazarus on friday. You can check podcast. Right here on the crossover feet again. Make sure you listen to howard's interview. Spencer dinwiddie from last week. It was really really strong. Enjoy -joy the mid west our. We'll talk when you're back on the northeast always a pleasure. My friend the newest player in the pre nba basketball landscape is overtime. Elite elite will begin playing sometime in the fall. And we'll be headlined by some of the top now. Former high school players in the country players would be paid minimum one hundred thousand dollars with some making north of that and have access to high level facilities training as well as educational programs to help. Get a better grasp on that. I'm joined by brandon williams the head of basketball operations for overtime. Elite and kevin ollie the former. Nba guard uconn. Coach was the head coach and director of player development bread. And i want to start here with you. Just kind of give me the ten thousand foot view overtime elite. What are the objectives. What what what was behind the formation of this league. I think any of us. Chris who've been around for a long time i've actually seen Sort of the downside of young players who entered into professional ranks to this point. It's been the nba Who are not ready. And so what does that mean you know not not ready to form and be stars or is it just not ready to be great teammates or is it not ready to be good partners. is sort of all that you know the idea that the work day is much longer than they know. And that there's more responsibility to be in a professional athlete The responsibilities to families and communities we just have to do a better job preparing them and here was an opportunity to be part of a program that wanted to address all that. It's not just about being a good player. It's like we wanna address the whole athlete. Hope so on. Three levels were hitting basketball. Easiest thing understand. I think businesses in our world is education And then there's brand you know. These young people now are moving at a speed that we aren't as older folks and they want to build things An earlier age particularly off the court so building a brand is important something that can last well beyond their tread on tire so we're hitting it in basketball business brand. That's that's that's really thirty thousand foot view. Kevin what attracted you to this job. Just like his dad is the whole person being able coach them from a mind body and soul Experience and understanding the mindfulness athlete I've seen it from a pro level. Got up tune into play thirteen years with twelve different teams so i understand like the different trials and tribulations you go through with a player not saying that these players are gonna go through that but is getting them more prepared if they do come into some certain situations where it's not typically going the right way. How can they manage that situation. So what they do today can echo into tomorrow and having the ability to kana paint on a black blank. Canvas is what a really attracted to me to to this you know. Ot league program we can take the player really shape the curriculum you not with teaching them about subjects. But we're really teaching them about themselves as well from media training From mental health issues. All the different things that come involved because we all know chris is stress. You know from success is a lot of pressures is a lot of people pulling at you. It's a lot of people won't certain things. But how do you deal with that from a player's standpoint where you can play when you get on the basketball court and half clear and not be caught up in the distractions of off the court issues. Um as desks desks were really kind of vocal. Spirit to give back in it and how these kids you know. Have these players be available at the moment of truth to make the right decisions and that was very important to me. Kevin as you mentioned you played in the nba brand. You played in the nba. As well i wanna ask both of you guys and kevin. I'll start with you like if this was available to you as sixteen. seventeen year. Old looking back. Would you have founded attractive with a definitely founded attractive You know i kind of thought the box anyway. I was from chris. Shaw from from from south central and i chose connecticut. So you places that. I didn't even know nothing about growing up. You always thought out the box and never wanted to go down a path that everybody was going down So i was always curious. And i think that's how my mom especially my mom. My dad raised me. So i definitely been curious of this situation. No no speaking now without you know took it. I'm not sure. But i think it really gave me another option to look at it and this is what we're trying to do not saying that the ncaa is wrong overtime. Leaders wrong or right. It's not about that. It's about if you really care about the student. Athletes you give them as much options as possible. And i think this gives the lee student athlete. Another option and i think you know it's a very Great option for them to have and if they choose overtime league we're going to give our whole heart to make sure they're developed on and off the basketball court chris i- jumping after coach It would have been interesting. Chris but i certainly would not have been a candidate i would. Let's just get that right. What what things that's important. We sit down going through just grassroots community and we spent months just talking to people educating about. You know what we're about who we are. Each of us has a reputation in some other space. Not here The this program isn't for everybody is not the right fit for everybody. We are cherry picking and a lot of ways. These are players that feel like they are destined for professional basketball. There are a lot of sixteen year olds. That don't know that yet and their parents aren't convinced that yet in people that support them. Don't don't feel that confidence yet. They may be another year away or two years away but this is not. This is not the right path for everyone. Twenty four athletes roughly twelve per class. We're looking at juniors and seniors and the truth is at this age. What was really funny about scouting them is everybody's skinny and like a lanky and underdeveloped and still has like a mountain of upside to you know to to get through before you can really see who they're going to be but you know if you have a young player like brand williams who's just dreaming of being an nba player but does not much certainty. That's even realistic We gotta be very careful about this approach In taking because there there are risks but for those that that have already established in this deke. They've established a day of separated from their class. You know jaylen. Lewis has an example the most recent example. He's he's he's elevated in separate. The draft isn't tomorrow though so there's still a lot of work to do but he's already in front running physician and it gives everyone low confidence that this is the kind of investment and the kind of pet that would make a ton of sense for players like that. Let me follow up on that brandon. Because you're you're entering. What suddenly become a fairly crowded space in terms of leagues like this. You know the g. league ignite is one season in but they've had a measure of success. We've seen jalen green probably a top pick. Jonathan kamenga top five or six. Then you have the ncw with this. Recent ruling allowing top players to make money off their name image and likeness. How does how does the elite separate itself from that group. Why think i is. We start a little bit sooner so the g. league zone a great job with what we call it a year the prep year that year. That a recent graduates would be going to college and they've already been hacking the system you know going to italy or china So so there's a market for those players and we want an alternative to college for for for us though. Our players are seeking an alternative to high school so we are a school but we think about the resources that were bringing to the table first of which being an nba like environment You know start coach. Ali coach lehto in a robust set of staff. I mean scouting staff a high performance staff administrative team. Our goal was to simulate an nba organization for for young athletes at sixteen seventeen eighteen. Th there there is no other environment. Like that. And i think the big way that we separate with high school athletes Is that both domestically and internationally. We're able to put twenty four of them together in a building. So what we're selling is the best competition for these guys starts at home. I mean every day in line coaches don't minister drills administer competition aspects of practice and getting ready for games but when you look to the right and left and i noticed as a player. There's no weak link. I mean everywhere you look. There's somebody that's doing what you're doing and possibly doing more. Because they they are not just dreamed about the into the league or to the high level. They're on their way there That's where we've been able to. I think create a little separation from others that have tried or looked at something. Like this kevin. How do you approach this job. Do you do it in a similar mindset and you had at uconn where you have young players you also you know yukon. You had to keep them academically eligible you to follow that pretty closely. I mean is there is it a similar mindset or do you take a different tact. I think you just let it be you know. Similar is not. It's just whatever comes you say yes to it and you cultivate hope from it I never coached high school players. They was always you know graduated from high school. And now they're freshman's This situation is a little different in in was recruiting for two to three years. This situation is a little different. But you know from me. Chris i love the unknown about it. And that's the space i live in. Not just wanna make sure that. I have the space incorporate something in these players that they can just think about it can build from a have a foundation so when they make the transition they have every tool in the toolbox to say okay. Oh that's a problem Assess it let me be able to correct it. Let me obsessed. Let me be aware of it and i think that's the difference between you know coaching a high school kid in in the college. Kid i mean you get able to mold them a little bit better and then you have to understand where they at. Now you know back then. I didn't have social media. We didn't have social media now. These kids these players are building their brand a little bit earlier and now you just meet them where they are. And i can't wait to get them up on campus get them up until atlanta just continue to build a great relationship. Welcome spend time with the one on one in. This situation is going to provide us to do a lot more skill development that i didn't have a really good opportunity and it had not one say good opportunity. I didn't have the best opportunity. Because there's so many things we own a row recruiting You own a row fundraising these different things. Brandon's taken care of in. Dan porter is taken care of. I can just really coach the player and work on his skill development on and off the basketball court. So it's really given me my own lane. So i can really perform my job. Mama job is really breaking down and relationships it starts. Relationship is start with trust. Stars will hold is spending time with the the young student athletes on and off the basketball court and pushed them to greatness and the competition is not on. our side of competition is with him. You know can you beat your previous best bestself. Can you be better than today you know. Can you be better tomorrow than you were date. And that's what i'm coaching. And that's what i love to do. And i think we're going to have some great young man as open as biden has going to be vulnerable going to try to reach for the sky. In the sky is going to be ob- you is not going to be limits. I can't wait to get up to atlanta. We've been having some many camps. Chris has been wonderful to get back on the court with the guys. And i'm looking forward to the next mini camp and dan looking forward to getting them up to atlanta. So we really can go to work. You know when. I was was talking to brian. shaw a couple of months ago. Kevin about how he was coaching. The ignite you know it was a lot of pro stop. He was trying to bring to that team. Are you taking that same. Approach you trying to coach them like their nba players or something different. No it's nothing different is just. I'm building pro. Habits in every situation is going to be different. Chris this is going to be some guys. Come in you know. Say for instance like a. John montero will we got him and he you know is a little bit more advanced than some other players because he's been a pro- already and then it's going to be another situation where we gotta talented guy might not be able to get quick but these opportunities we can go at our own pace we can sit down and talk to them but we're really teaching and building pro habits and those habits is going to translate over to them being great pros when that opportunity come invest in the nba are the euro league so every day you know we are building like a practice plan like more of a college practice plan nba practice bandwidth doing drills. That i got from my numerous stops in the nba. You know we're doing sets in the nba. Then we gotta understand that sixteen years old as well you know and maybe sometimes you gotta you know kinda doubt it down a little bit. But i'm gonna let com. I'm going to let that go. i'm not going to focus on one of it. I'm not gonna say oh. We're doing this process. Each and every day every day is different. And that's what i love about the unknown. And i'm gonna treat it like that and we just gonna continue to bill because i think we got great mas and organization that really want to coach the whole person. And that's what i'm really excited about. You decided to upgrade your outdoor deck. So you ordered the essentials. Power washer said a patio chairs and a shiny new grill. And you use your bank of america. Customized cash rewards credit card choosing to earn three percent cashback online shopping and up to five point. Two five percent preferred rewards member which you put toward your most essential deck addition a bird feeder of yours at bank of america dot com slash more rewarding copyright two thousand twenty one bank of america corporation support for this podcast comes from invent together according to studies less than thirteen percent of all inventors who hold a us patent are women black and hispanic college graduates patent at half the rate of their white counterparts. But we can fix that by increasing participation innovation and patenting by underrepresented groups. It would quadruple. The number of american inventors and increase annual gdp by almost one trillion dollars. Invent together is a coalition of organizations companies. Universities and concerned citizens committed to ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to invent and patent because the more diverse. The american patent system gets the stronger and more successful. our nation will become. What can you do to help. Divers inventors patent and unleash economic opportunity. Find out at invent together dot org learn more and take action today brandon not to continue to compare this team to the ignite but when i talked to sharieff abderrahim about that i mean. I had asked him about the sustainability of that team. Given how much. Money was being poured in to pay some of the players. And he bobbed and weaved floyd mayweather trying to answer that question. Because it's it's hard to commit to it without say a television contract more sponsorships and things like that when you can you speak to kind of the sustainability of this because we've seen startups with an influx of cash. Get get in big the first year. But then peter out. I mean what needs to happen. Four overtime elite to become a long term successful program while has got to answers. I think you know a concept. I mean we're we're selling on the ability to develop young players and have a more more pro ready right. So this is. This is the path we are offering basketball development. Call it professional Business development And we are also like leveraging. What is an incredible media platform that again. The things that we like to call a distinguishing factors. That's a huge one. So not to bob and weave one. We gotta be good ass. You know that. That's how have long deputy spurs the spurs. They were good for really long time. And so we've got the that there were good at this note. No pressure on kale right The the the second piece though is you know and this comes from my my time in the nba. It just wasn't that long ago where it out of chicago. Pre-draft combine interview. If i said. I wanna build my brand. Everybody in the room was like smirking and like you know what. What are we talking about like. It's about basketball basketball basketball And you know if you are young team developing and not winning a lot of games truth is you can't sell just basketball because your basketball isn't great you got to sell personalities and stories in that there's something that people can invest in in fall in love with other than like the final score like otherwise. The sixers had no chance right any any development team yet to buy into a story and for us. I think we have a chance to create stories but we get a chance to show those stories because we have a platform. So it's it doesn't take much. I mean i'm not a social media guru. But when i got recruited for this job haven't been around the block a little bit certainly from an nba perspective. I heard a couple of things. I really got my attention. One was fifty million followers That's eyeballs and we all know that that Business follows the eyeballs in whatever in whatever respect. The other was which is unfair. Because i think that number changes month over month but it started at one point four and not set maybe one point eight or one point nine billion with a b. billion views of content a month that overtime in some ways has found a way to the heart. The mind of young people It is being communicated and solid as you know the generation z. sort media and content engine We are doing an amazing thing here which is developing young talent in a pure way that we want to make sure that they are prepared. Top to bottom to do well on the court to do well and communities to do well in business but then there's this other thing which is they want to be known like. No player wants to play in an empty building. Everybody wants to play where it matters. They wanna play. When nick can rock and like the building and just like recognizing their talent. We're just artists. And one thing that is kind of showcase. By one event that that overtime overtime the media company producing s called. You see it on youtube to. Is that over. Hundred million people watched that. I mean that that's not an insignificant number that players that are going to play overtime. Lee will have the opportunity to be known The the opportunity of bring brick big brands to the table and support this platform If not already indicated by the kinds of investors that that have shown interest but the brands that are coming to the table our sustainability is going to be showing value delivering value to not just the athletes but to overtime visibility. I would imagine great for them but can you monetize it. Can you make it so this league is in the black or does it need to be in the black every year. Well my the good news is as a basketball man. No different than a different than the is Get a budget. My job is to be fishing and and spend wisely. I i'm not. I'm not asked to sell tickets or generate revenue that's for a tremendous And in successful a business operations Our job is to make sure that what we are delivering is high is a high level product That you see the growth and development of our young players. What's there recruited. We gotta make them better. They need to be able to perform and probably the best testament of our success is going to be our nba. Gm voting with this pick right but with a coach saying like they did a nice job. This guy was. Well coached testament to takeo and the rest of the coaching staff. That if we're doing that will prove successful. Because guess what the next crop of recruits when we're in the gym like we're not chasing them. There's sort of meeting us at at minimum half way. We need to keep bringing high level taliban and developing talent to prove successful and i have a tremendous set of partners across academics and across content media. That will will do their part to elevate our business. Can you expecting to tap into some of your. nba relationships. I mean as you mentioned thirteen teams in twelve seasons. You've made a lot of friends over the years. We're going to see like san preston sitting in the crowd for your practices as a whole so sam and so many gyms that i know you know Kevin durant and all these guys are destinies in overtime. Just having them be around. We had our first minicamp. Ray allen showed up and not only showed up. He brought his son to work out with guys. Just it was just amazing. does just see how the branches that we can continue to pull up on and they continue to pull on us and be a partnership in. This thing is going to be great. Are you expecting to have kind of drop ins. Durant's involved with the league. You expecting these guys. Just be around. Which i would imagine would be both a resource for you but also an attractive quality to this league definitely. Definitely we going to build a place where it's going to be hopefully a development premier development destination for everybody and you know hopefully katie can come out and work out with guys and russell westbrook and james harden and all these guys that we know and i know i had opportunity to be evolved. Then it's kinda beat a veteran guys We want them to be around. Because it's not. Just me sean. It's also watching tape like these are the different drills and look how k. d. and look how chris paul is using the pick and rolls and now they're showing up that's a that's a big big bang for us with us growing these young talented student athletes To get them inspired to the next level and they're doing a great job done only gonna do. I coached him. Chris a coach me on a day to day basis. I'm open to that and we just really want to have a love affair with guys and and the end of the day chris. We want appease the basketball guys. We wanna play the right way. We want to share a basketball. We wanna run. We wanna have fun. We want how to join the game but it can't just be me me me. It has to be weak. And i'm wanting to teach guys how to be involved in any system they get drafted about. They can be a part of a productive system and be a productive partner in in the community as well no matter what city they when they arrive to the nba brandon. Before let you go. What schedule gonna look like i mean is this team playing. Just walk me through kind of what these kids are getting into. And what kind of schedule you gonna be able to put together so schedule that that is really interesting for everybody. And i wanna try to illuminate. But i've got to be careful we are still contracting with some teams But for the audience the think about it in buckets. We're gonna play independent prep schools. That's going to be a significant part of our schedule. We are a high school so we are looking to schedule. Some of the top independence that you would typically no to have a national schedule can travel that have the ability to be mobile. We're scheduling home and away with with With those folks and it looks like net set as an example It looks like you know. Folks that are playing for a national title Arizona florida california. So it'll be a widespread travel schedule for us. We're also looking at European competition so think about junior euroleague as an example. Some of the best clubs the Insects as an example Where we can get a collection of sixteen to nineteen year old elite talent to compete against us. And then as i mentioned earlier on the show we really feel like the best competition is gonna come internally and that's where our league play Comes into effect so we are looking at our group of twenty four as three teams of eight. There will be standings you'll be able to track will compete against each other. That'll be a significant part of our schedule as well. We don't want to overstep our guys one of the things. We really wanna correct leading science. Guide us here. is is minimized the wear and tear. Nobody's while still developing and preparing for a professional level place so a schedule of maybe thirty five. To forty games is our target. We started september Training camp will will begin Play by mid august. We'll be done by by Late march is how we see our schedule shaping up i'm looking forward to it brennan kevin. It's a really interesting concept and hope you guys have a lot of success with an. I'll certainly be watching a lot of. Nba people will be watching but brandon. Stay out of a set of massachusetts. Kevin has like some basketball. Ptsd from all those bc. Matchups i'm sure would probably were so tough. I don't remember kevin. It's not real like talk about it. But lita past. We'd be six thousand. That's not very nice. That's hovering kevin brand. Thanks for joining me. I appreciate it all right. Thank you chris. Thanks so much.

We might do to ours. Jackie macmullan is joining us. The hall of famer Cholera was not traded jenny. What happened what happened well. It's funny i was talking to someone in the raptors organization a few days ago. And they're sort of this sense if you look back on that great championship season. The next year Koi leonard walks for nothing. Danny green goes for nothing right them gusau and serge ibaka for nothing and i think it. Just maybe it's just like okay. We're all right with kyle. Stay in here. He's okay more more importantly like cows like me out of here man. This is a sinking ship. I think the results would have been different. Perhaps and i think he was like. I'm okay with being here. You know his bird rights don't kick in till the you can't extend him till the summer so if you trade for you're interested in his bird rights much harder now to sign kyle hours of free agent because you no longer has his bird rights so for people that most people on. I don't need to explain this on your podcast right. Everyone knows what that means yes. I know it's helpful though. Yeah okay so what it means. Is that If you had if you trade him at the deadline and you wanted to extend him you had his bird rights. You could go over the cap you have to worry about it now. If you sign him you have been able to fit him. And it's it's more difficult for teens. So i think in the end they probably just like. How much of this can we ask our fans to understand. He's so good with the younger guys. And you know let's face it siachen nick nurse. They got a little thing going on right. Now there's a little back and forth. Kyle lowry i think is a great buffer for that. You know maybe he rides you through. That rough time comes apart. Future

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

Is This An End Of An Era For The Raptors?

"Yeah, this was this is Rock Bottom in the Navy for actors team that everything I said about them State of the Union. Okay this moment. I can't believe what's happening this team a team that could execute defensive game plans, like nobody's business box and one Tatum out of games cut off camera from a playoff series. I don't like it's just hard right now. I don't know what's going on with that you okay though. This is what I want to know. Now I'm going how are you doing? Yeah. Yeah, like I'm worried about you seeing an end of an era with this team and they were fun Squad they what they wanted the most unexpected Championship ever in 2019, 2010-2020. They delivered us one of the best playoff series we've seen, you know, serious that needed a crowd looking back on it was so good that we needed like the memory of the crowd reaction to those games. I know it's dead like this team is just in shambles. I I like I don't know what else to say. And you know, Nick nurse was kind of laughing free game talking about all the adjustments. They were going to make an do any of them really worked extra Wings some of the deeper bench guys Matt Thomas and seriously. What are we talking about here Serge Ibaka was great in the playoffs. We all know Marcus all struggled immensely them. So those losses were something there. I gave the team still intact and they just aren't locked in. We know Pascal siakam is in a different world than where he was before the contract extension and the last postseason berth. So they have an issue on their hands and Jimmy you said a couple of games ago has Nick nurse lost that team. It might not be any of his own. I mean they they really are in a tough position being down in Tampa Bay house where nobody lives where are beans is renting a condo and like everybody's just kind of camped out hundreds of miles from home and they're playing you two straight games on the road there in an impossible situation, but one in fact, I mean that's just

"How'd you celebrate yesterday? But Phoebe made home made our ribs for me. WeII hung out at the house to pet the dog looked out, watched the rain have very blessed. Very blessed to be working here. Don't going after all these years and You know what? I I share A birthday with Sylvie. My God. Happy birthday to Sylvie. And like I said on the video on Twitter at north, the North Arnold Palmer, my hero September 10th. And then, of course, Roger Maris a couple guys that I sort of looked up to as a young and You know, Always fires going on September ever go, You know, you know supposed to be. I don't know. You know, I don't pay too much attention to it. You know the horoscope stuff? No, no, I'm not at all. Not one bit. I mean, I know my sign, but I never read it when you're sad. You know, when you think about it? I know nothing. I think it's ah I don't know anything. Is it something I read or you're a while? I don't know. I read it once in a while, you know, in the paper. And I go. That's not gonna happen. That's what's gonna happen in Game seven Senate, the Raptor showing their championship medal, Mike, They're not gonna let you see that game. The other night was fabulous, Double overtime. It took double overtime for Celtics game to finally go over. That breaks the streak of seven straight unders in Celtics games in the playoffs. The total tonight I mean, When do we see this anymore? In the MBA? This thing opened it like 207. I think quickly got back down to two or five tonight in the 19. Not anymore. It's 12 3.5 tonight. Yeah. Well, I like Toronto because I like Nick Nurse, OK, I love this guy. And if they could win It just sort of, like, almost not explode because you won with, um and until you win without him. It's because of quite Leonard, but we're finding out there were other pieces, you know that we knew were there but I didn't think they'd be this good. I know. I never thought they'd be this good. And I look at Boston. And I look at it there. Dependants sometimes involved teams, by the way, like two cute the three. Yes. Lowry shoots it from half court. You know, you look, he's got to have a good game. But I don't know. Tonight's the night. You would miss a guy like Leonard. Don't I totally agree with you? Yes, if anything there feeling good that in Game six. Campbell didn't have a great game. But Jason Tatum in jail in Brown, the two best players for the Celtics. Combined for 60 points, Right, 30 rebounds, 11 assists and force field. Jalen around catches. No, I mean, you're right in Boston lost. So if anything, baby like they're feeling I think what you just said Sums it up. Tonight's probably the kind of night where they miss Kawai, But we'll see maybe the championship team down the road that became a champion without their study. Or won a game seven without their studies IQ of the Celtics without even though you have McHale and all those guys bacon today without bird on a game seven Without magic in the Game seven. The Good thing is Michael barely ever even went to game seven. Think it only happened twice? He was, But you know what? No, You're right. I think I think that sums it up. Perfectly like I'm not going to play this game tonight. But if I if I were going to make a play, I think what you said is right and that I would I would lay the 2 2.5 and bet the Celtics tto win Game seven. Absolutely, but I'll just kick back and watch. I haven't a rooting interest. Any otherway. There's enough going on this weekend. Everybody be careful. Go like this weekend for everything. In other words, if you better 1003 100, maybe. Or bet 400 If you bet 50 25 100 that 75 because They're all going to be under different environments. Look last night, didn't they had some fans which was okay But but Don't look at just last night. There's gonna be some adjustment with what's going on right now. And last night was like because of the Super Bowl Championship. The banner being on wave. It was a whole new ball game. You know, there's going to be some some bad football basically Sunday, so be careful because I think All Besides a couple games, I told Carmen They're split down the middle, mostly on matchups. I know. Let's feel it out. Let's see how it goes. Because it's such a new time. You're You're right. Plenty of time. You got 15 more week. Manage your money, Lakerswin and cover last night to go through one of the Rockets. They're seven and two straight up six and three against the number of the place I want. Everybody just shut up about James Harden. It was pretty bad, wasn't it? You just be quiet about it for now, and I don't want to hear it. They let him shoot and get his way during the regular season. It's LeBron James and Anthony Davis. I told everybody the Lakers will be there at the end. You got two guys like that. You could have three guys make Tom could play with them. I know their Lakers and clippers as we ex suspected all year on a collision course with the Western Conference finals. It's gonna be Oh, I wouldn't be shocked if the Lakers close amount tomorrow night either. To be honest, I have 6.5 point favorite degree, man. And you know what? I look look Pardon? I think that that guy to me. I know he puts up big numbers. But I've seen them all. Okay, I'll pierce on you. I'll take 20 other guys over you. Honest to God, I don't care how much you score. You got to play defense to and then you know, you just don't look at Chris Paul's out again. There's just certain guys that can take you all the way. He had an awful night shooting the basketball last night before that's for sure. Stars win last night. No overtime. I start. I got a plane to one. No way. What are you going to do with Dad again? So if they if they win this Siri's and tell everybody what you got. I've got the stars. The wind at 12 1 eye only $100 went 1200 bucks. Okay, go ahead and divulge that It's not like I've got $5000 riding on them, but you know, it's a nice payday. I love for it to happen. It's the pic. That's right Pick. It's not the money. I'll have to decide. If they win this. Siri's. I will decide. If I had. I mean to me the lightning in the other conference final right now, even though they're banged up in there, playing are breaking points hurt. Now stand close have been out there playing short and they looked like a freight train to me, Mike. I mean, the lightning just look incredible. I'll have to decide who I want to hedge. But is it really worked at the start hedging and taken action on the other side when.

"Is well. Twitter, A tiki attorney, by all means. Feel free to get us there got Santana Moss coming up next segment, former Washington wide receiver jets as well take part of the Washington broadcast squad. So that's coming up in 4 20 eastern 1, 20 Pacific. We've got some men Bahir full preview coming up. Five Eastern will run through all the divisions Take what's happening there lessen, you know, Listen, thes Toronto raptors are just so So impressive on so many levels from there coaching, you know their physical resilience. They had no business winning that game. They were getting run out of the gym jail, and Brown was flowing early Jalen Ground was on fire. They couldn't hit a three. That's the rat. There's while Boston everything they put up with, you know, find on the bottom of the net, and here we are, and threw all the twists and turns couple of overtime sessions. Campbell Walker was really bad. Just two for 11. Never got going. That's an anomaly, which probably bodes well for Boston in Game seven, probably. But here we are. The fact that the rat there's have a chance to advance to the Eastern Conference finals is really nothing short of amazing team. Shockley is because after I mean They were almost down, three zip, right? And with the without the O. J and an O B like miraculously, three pointer taco fall, had one job. We're off that day bt he had one job at seven to Defend the inbound. Throw your hands up. Make it like hard for a 6 Ft. Guard. Two inbound the ball over you instead, Cow, Lowry flips it all way across the other side of the court to the corner, Ojea standing and nails a three pointer. I mean, that's if they lose that game. It's the Siri's over. They're not coming back from 30. Maybe they do Who knows? But there is there is a grit that's happening here and that we seeing. I talked about this yesterday with the Miami Heat They have that Toronto clearly has that They are an overachieving bunch and so many different ways, and they think they have the ability to stay focused and in the moment despite like the challenges that they faced, and it's This is why Nick Nurse one coach of the Year, Beatty and we knew coming into this season. The likelihood of them repeating was like almost nil. I'm going to give them a little bit of a slob because anything could happen in sports right? But there is no way it was more than 1% that they were going to repeat, even getting back to the Eastern Conference finals. Yet here we see them a game away from getting to the Eastern Conference finals. That's on coaching. That's on making these guys believe and what they what they're doing, and, more importantly, developing some of these young players. A lot of whom aren't like like blue bloods. You know that the guys that you're picking the ID. That guy was a lottery pick. That guy was one of the top five players in college back. There's none. None of the players are like that. It's actually kind of miraculous when you think about it. I love watching him play. You know, there's a few things I I wouldn't even give him the word that I 1% chance. I guess Now you leave the door open for any possibility. But you know, you lose Kawai. The Eastern Conference has come in the Lakers have a D. I mean, the Spurs department, Clippers have Paul George and Kawai. This team can't defend its crown. Yeah, no. At this point, I stopped short of saying that I'll tell you this, though, And you could maybe just let this hang in the air? I don't know, even know if we really need to be debated, but Ka Lowry becoming whole favor at this point, I mean, I may be six time All Star time All star. You gotta think about this. Every championship team need some representation and at aside from You know, Kawai eyes One of done. Let's build is not going to be associated with them, and he mean the championship will be associated with him. But he's not going to be viewed as a rafter. That's what I'm saying. He's all said done, You'd be very hard. I'm not saying that There's none although off the top of my head. I can't think of any You'd be very hard pressed to find the single N BA team with only one hole, the Famer that won a championship with only one hold of Famer. You would be ah, on the Pistons. Obviously Isaiah knotted wire. Not Ah, not Laimbeer, not doom. Or maybe maybe the Pistons actually is the answer, but They're very few and far between. Obviously, Jordan Pippen, you know that I think about it. Now. The Rockets ruling on it only had a large one as well. And Katie Smith and basically debating myself and getting my point. But the point is There's a lot more teams with multiple hold of Famers that won championships or championship. Then there are one for me, and I'm expensive. I say it a lot of ways call Lowry's like a less talented and that's not a knock. But he's a less talented Isiah Thomas. He's their pitiful and Isaiah was there, but I know Lane beer was there in force or whatever. But Isiah Thomas was the horn soul. That team call Lowry is just Even though Nick nurse is great. If Lowry's not, you know, taking that messaging and then you know, finding a way to connected to the soles of his teammates through his play. He's just a beast. Man. He is. He's a pit bull cow.

"nick nurse" Discussed on Sports Talk 1050 WTKA

"Basketball Nick Nurses On the base line on the sideline. He is looking like a Celtic player He can't be in this position makes the mistake thinking that Nick Nurse is his teammate. That's not me. That's wrong. Tatum didn't seem like the same thing about it. But obviously you can't be on the corner like that. I mean, like, you could make the argument that That's just Mark Jackson being more Jackson. And many of you on Twitter did Except some of the Celtics seemed bent. That nurse was out of the coach's box and that he may have looked like a teammate to Tatum. All right, I guess maybe except for since When did the Celtics have a guy wearing glasses and long pants on the team. And if they did, is that really the guy that you want, pulling up from three with less than a minute to go in an elimination game? Are you kidding me about that argument? And then the final two minutes and 33 seconds in double OT, were like Puri Electricity because guys who had been too exhausted to finish lay ups or elevate for jumpers Sunday got hit with the paddles. You've got Toronto's Norman Powell. He had a pair of free throws to tie that came up. Then Daniel Thais had an alley oop to give Boston the lead. Then Pascoe Sockem came down and hit a jump shot. Marcus Smart Gay Boston, a three point lead pal came right back with three of his own. Are you kidding me? We were nearly 57 minutes into that game. At that point, Guys were exhausted, yet they're still hitting three bombs. Thais with another alley oop and then o g and an O. B for three to give Toronto a one point lead and then power did this smart Tatum. Dr. Knocked away stolen by Norman Powell Powell.

"It also calls on the phone lines at 855 to 12 for CBS. That's 855 to 124227. You can also find me on the old Twitter machine. My Twitter handle is at Alex Reamer, one That's where Joe Mason finds me spent the first hour of the show talking all things n ba playoffs. I think the Lakers in LeBron have asserted themselves reasserted themselves, They should say. Out West LeBron and Anthony Davis combined for 62 on Sunday, and the Rockets at the end of it only lost by eight, which is Run an incredible feat considering how poorly Russell Westbrook point Considering that Harden on, Lee took 12 shots. They only lose by eight. So I understand, Amy coming in house rules, No predictions. I am breaking that here to say I am predicting the Lakers win this Siri's. I'm convinced of it after Sunday and, Yeah, I told you the valiant effort the Rockets gave, but It just reminded me. When LeBron and 80 play like that. Really hard to stop him can't be stopped and you get double digits from a couple of these veterans. Whether it's Rondo where Mark IV Morris or Cal Cosma steps up like he did on Sunday with some big shots and That's really all you need on the offense event. Milwaukee is done against the heat. That's on a bold prediction. Rio. No team in MBA history has come back from a three hour deficit they do in Sunday without Johannes. I think if I'm Johannes right now, listening to us, I'm sure he is on his radio dot com apathy Walt Disney World Resort Probably sitting up resting that ankle and saying whom? Let me text Dre. It's midnight out there in California might still be upper boy. Would it be fun to play for the heat to down in South Beach and Erik Spoelstra coach. You actually moves things around. It isn't so stubborn and his approach like Budenholzer like I have been Milwaukee here if I'm Janessa plotting my exit with one year left on my deal. Joe Mason I mentioned finds me on Twitter, he says. Where is Yang is going to go, But he doesn't want to be the second player he wants the team built around him. Milwaukee is committed to upgrading the roster around him to win a title. I'm sure Milwaukee's committed and doing all it can To retain the honest which is why I think coach but is a Gagner The moment the Bucks exit the bubble. It's a big move the Bucks can make. It's the easiest move. They can make the easiest, drastic move I should say they can make. And I think that you know I don't I don't like to advocate for people to lose work. But you know, Budenholzer is a really good coach. Turns around Atlanta improves Milwaukee from 44 winds to 60, and they're even better this year in the regular season. Yannis likely ones to M V. P s under him, so he won't be out of work for long in whichever team hires him. Next will be very happy and certainly I think we'll make a great decision. I don't think Budenholzer is a bad coach. He's a very good coach, one of the best they have. But He's not Nick Nurse. He's not Erik Spoelstra as we seeing. I don't think he's Doc Rivers. He's not in that upper echelon for me because His teams have underperformed so far in the playoffs, and they haven't made adjustments and honest is not playing enough minutes. I mean, I know he Aggravated the ankle at some point in Game three and then had the ankle injury. Game four. But I mean playing fewer minutes each night, as the Bucks lose in Game three, Brook Lopez played more minutes than Yanis, Aunt Ada Campo that is just unacceptable. So It's a long way of saying from the Bucks. Coach. But yes, you make a change, but You know, in terms of the players, they're kind of handicapped with their roster. In terms of attracting free agents attracting stars. I think playing with the honest is certainly very attractive, but he hasn't won anything yet. Let's remember that, and he's also underperformed in the play offs himself. He's not blameless here. Way too passive for me in the fourth quarter of these games, so Johannes is not a proven winner. That's number one and number two. You're selling Milwaukee. Sorry. That's just not. That's just not as enticing as other premier options across the league. And at Alex's number one is my Twitter handle happy Toa. Talk to you on the Twitter machine. But we are just days away. And that is not a parabolic. We are literally days away. From the start of the 2020 NFL season. And it certainly feels strange. We have not had a pre season. What's actually been happening in these practices has been kept under wraps. There's no video It's like we're in the pre TV era here. But I'm excited. Regardless. I'm excited. Football is back. I'm excited. They're giving it a try here. In our cove, it era. I think it will work. I think there will be some outbreaks. And I think they'll shoulder through. That's that's just how I think it's going to go in the NFL that South frankly have always thought it was going to go. Maybe I wavered a little bit as cases where so much exploding, adding such rates in Florida in California in Texas and other hot spots earlier this summer around the Fourth of July. Yeah. Look bad there for all sports, and every everything and it still looks. You know, it's not under pointless. We have roughly 1000 deaths per day still across the country. Over 100,000 deaths. I mean, It's unfathomable. What's happening. But En bas bubbles, working NHL bubbles working WN BA MLS all working in the bubble baseball shouldering on and I think the NFL is going to do the same. And with that spirit in mind I'm going to give one bold prediction on the show tonight and tomorrow as it pertains to the upcoming NFL season And you're bold predictions are welcome and again, 855 to 1 to four CBS. That's 855 to 124227. What is your bold predictions for.

"That's not a bad shot wasn't a bad shopping to see not it was a bad shot. But how did they beat Philly? Was that a good shot? Just tell me that was was that a Nick nerve-wracking. This is the best coach you can do we need to Coalinga. Is that the best player you go? Okay. So this is what is what I wanted to hear from you mind me getting that. I mean running off the corner going all the way following the way from the three-point line that that was the way you designed. This is where I'm getting that thing. Okay. So then let's talk about that. Then ignorant didn't have a play lined up in that situation or at least we maybe didn't have the the player. Maybe maybe that's it. In my opinion. He said, you know what they figure things out up to this point. I'm going to let them just keep going cuz I have nothing and that's a problem that's off. Can't be that kind of Coach into play. I believe in this situation that Brad Stevens to me and although Nick nurse is the coach of the year. I like Brad Stevens home is a knows better now like next Nur Nick nurses X's and O's I think he is. I think he gets guys in places. They need to be and it has really worked out well for so so I don't I don't necessarily think that yeah, you want some people that call timeout. Okay, you can call timeout but now you give the other team opportunity to self esteem. So if I promise up until you come down to your file before guy gets into the act of shooting Mean there are a bunch of things. You can talk about that. You can't talk about on the flyer. So that's a good point because you if you're Brad Stevens, I'm telling my guys to foul. They needed three follow. Yeah, but they they going to do that. They did not going to do that because they didn't have that opportunity to think about it. They just play what time on the situation you have more time to think about. Absolutely so that maybe it's why Nick nurse doesn't call a time-out init work off. All you were trying to do is get a decent. Look at it three point shot got a decent Loop. Don't miss don't miss out on this one. It's your chance. You know, Cedric Maxwell says go down absolutely had to betonline.ag today and take advantage of all the great signup bonuses betonline.ag your online sportsbooks experts and it now I don't know man. just feel like when it comes down like you say like when it comes out and accessing those late-game situations, I'm taking Brad Stevens over over Nick nurse all day them, but when Nick nurse but some guy told me later on or off. Yeah, some guy told me the other day on the radio from Toronto said Nick nurses by the arrestee was a give him a clinic in coaching. Okay. Oh, I thought that goes but this is my thing with him. This beef with Nick you you played out that situation, right? It didn't pan out obviously depend on welfare. But you know, you played that card whatever it is what it is right off of 20 minutes later. So it was a microphone in your face and you're gonna complain about oh Jason Tatum got their free throw line too many times all the favors. I mean, excuse me, all the referees gave him that one come on and while you're trying to put up there and you're trying to put something in somebody's you're trying to put some because if it's not working you're down to well, you're trying to put your grabbing it whatever you can grab that actually the course of the year. You're trying that your job. Well, you're grabbing it what you can grab it. See I can really hasn't been that guy you know that said, oh my God, there's no way to stop. I'll come David Jaylen Brown has done a nice job. I'm just I sewing being one off. Woman with G acha you gotta yeah, and they haven't really had to double-team. That's true. So, you know what Jaylen brown hair but his defense has been underrated. How about the time that Jaylen Brown? I mean you're talking about quickness thought he ripped off calorie calories was dribbling and it was like stripping. Well, yeah look like look like brown was in The Matrix the way he went across and grabbed the basketball game. Carolina was sent he was going back the other way know when the ball on the floor you you ain't got it no more. I looked at him. Where did it go with so long? I mean, it's been it's been eye-opening to see some of the some of the situations and even now down that bubble people talk about or you know, what's going on with Milwaukee Milwaukee is trademark what they do. They give up three's what does what does Miami like to do? Oh you take the reason you're walking Milwaukee is given that more FAQ. To anybody else. So Miami's Forte there strip is shoot the three. Yeah. So if you ever team does knocking down threes in a regular area off and you you're struggling right now with, you know, Yiannis and Middleton and you know, they play great against the Celtics but they've had a you know, Jonas has been if they use the series honest is going to be exposed again time to time MVP. I agree with that. Well, the biggest reason why I agree with that is because you you got a 27-point performance out of Chris Middleton office and you couldn't make that a win like that's a big. Well somebody else involved in this. Well, that's what I'm saying. You know his Lopez involved. Where is Lopez build out. 1 game? Okay lower game loading again if off on your scores Seventeen eighteen, you're in trouble. Well, we're we're and that's the thing about picking up your teammates like somebody who's like Kimba. Okay. Kimball didn't was barely scored and Marcus fairly score. Yep. You had somebody else that kind of shoulder the load until those guys got it together and you look at blood. So what's blessed done during the series always been a little banged up. So I don't I don't trust them this man. This is obviously I've never been like like that's always in my thing Milwaukee. Yiannis is going to be honest, but I don't trust your boys like your squad is shaky Milton will give you those 30.93 here and there but need to make sure those are wins you can give those up Jerry has travels big man. I really like Miami and new series. I just like their Focus right now, too. Yeah. I totally agree. I think again to see to me, it's Jimmy Butler Factor. Yeah, because they those dudes right now bam alabado guys, like they're they're taking on that same Persona is Jimmy Butler like, you know jumping off. Yeah. I mean Jimmy brother man. I mean he said about when you asked about guests and family come into the bubble was you said he I'm not bringing anybody man. This is a business trip. Wow.

Toronto really, you know, would have fried. You know, there's there's double to seize these playoff. Great Nick Nurse continues his greatness. We just want to end the coach of the year again. So that's your problem. The Toronto has Kyle Lowry could be out. They don't have a problem with their bench outside of Cairo. Lowry not being on it, possibly if he's injured 100 points in that game. That's incredible, Galen. It is And you know if you look at Toronto's roster, like you said, they're bed has been great. And a lot of people don't know what these guys are.

They lost to Toronto because Greek freak was dealing with Some Teeth issues have a Check in with an oral surgeon available at Disney World hopefully wasn't goofy. Thank you very much. And Toronto didn't have a full company of players Lowry out a bucket in play, then vite probably didn't go but trying to still won the game, and they should be getting much more consideration to win it. All. I know it's not a sexy pic. I know we are nationalistic when it comes to all of sports, but If you've been paying attention, and it's challenging this year, because it's been a weird year. The Raptors have a better record heading into the postseason than they did last year, with Kawai lettered remembering They arrested him a ton, but this is a team we should be talking about. With their depth, better depth than Boston. My pick out the east and championship experience guided by Nick Nurse who is probably going to be the head coach of the year in the association and one of the brightest basketball minds we've seen. In the recent memory, so because this is my last filling opportunity, I will spin it forward. It's going to come down to Toronto coming out of the East bad news to want to keep the free cutting into his walk year. And then it's the Clippers coming out all the West, beating the Lakers in the Western Conference finals all about depth..

Inside the 24 hours that shut down the sports world

"Michael Grange is senior writer at sports net he covers the NBA or at least did before was suspended. Hi Michael Jordan. I'm doing all right. We're just trying to keep up as I talk to you and I'm sure you've seen it the. Nhl HAS JUST SUSPENDED. Its season as well. It's just remarkable How the pace of these things. It's almost kind of a symbol or an apt emblem for the problem. That that's Kinda confronting everybody is is you look at how this this issue affected the sports world and it was you know just to the pace of three or four days space three or four days? It was kind of incremental. You know people were paying. There's a little bit more urgency around it and then you know everything's just kinda come on like a tidal wave and You know that's roughly I think How the kind of manifest itself through populations is You know it's sort of a little bit of a creep a little bit of concern and then all of a sudden. It's too late and things kind of spiraled and Guy Can't really recall anything. Released a sports where the things and news and developments have come so quickly and rapidly and suddenly described the scene at the NBA game that forced the suspension of the season because that seemed to really be the tipping point. Four all of this very interesting. I mean The Oklahoma City Thunder were hosting the Utah Jazz. There was some concern that there is sort of like the Star Center for the Jazz. You know was ill. He'd been kind of exhibiting signs of I think he'd been tested for strep throat was exhibiting signs of being unwell and he was given a task for Kobe nineteen I believe the day of the game and he so he never went to the arena was home but had turned out the team's hotel but had that test been negative that he simply had a kind of a more common kind of flew his expectation plan was to play the game and the So the two teams are floor. The music is playing. Crowd is in the building. You know the the tip is approaching and right around the time when the ball would've been going up and and all of that you know one of the The team medical officials for the Oklahoma City centre kind of came running out of out of the back of the building onto a data. Deficient gathered to coaches and my understanding. Is that the player tested positive for covert nineteen. You know those are responsible came very quickly. After that it was determined they would have to at least have to postpone that game. It takes them a while to figure out how to relay that information to the crowd they did and you know within the hour almost of that decision the NBA realized that had to suspend operations for the possible. What had the discussion around this virus and the MBA or even to this virus and sports In the bigger picture being leading up to that what kind of measures I were being taken. What were people considering? Because I got the sense that this escalated very quickly you says correctly you know the NBA has gotten a lot of credit for being very proactive and a little bit ahead of the charge as a release the other North American sports. I don't know if she claimed. In this instance you know we saw how rapidly this escalated in parts of Asia and Europe and is of last week you know the the first kind of acknowledgement of the virus by the NBA was You know kind of an internal memo that was never made public but kind of out saying no players Daffy be conscious of Of you know sort of shaking hands and kind of dropping slapping hands you know. Go with a bunch of bumps fist-bump when your own or don't feel obligated to sign autographs. So he's doing about the players. I mean themselves from you. Know actions with the public The next stage of that but it wasn't taken seriously and I certainly saw players can figure doing that and The only really making a big deal of it. Which goes I think the way while people were kind of looking at it as recently as a week ago. I believe it was on Tuesday that you know the lead and and in conjunction with the other Major North American sports panel putting New Measures. About how the media would interact with players. You know they're out to keep a certain distance between players during interviews and that there wouldn't be no more scrums I'd access everything would be kind of a press conference type setting and again. That was all seen as a preventative. Measure to keep the players distanced. So that's Tuesday on things by this time we're really escalating. Really think was sort of you know where where a lot of news is really coming out and the pictures getting more grim and so on as of Wednesday afternoon the Board of Governors of the leaks representatives from each of the franchise are kind of represented. The owners of each of the franchises themselves were on conference calls in hand and trying to come up with a plan and at that point the plan. Wise try to keep playing games but maybe one to limit fans or maybe role you also game is supposed to be in Boston. Concerns about it out. Great maybe the game can be played in Boston and Detroit. It'LL BE BOSTON DETROIT. Sorta thing road game until Home Game. So you know again. It's sort of like half measures but when newly found out a player was positive then they their hands were forced because if he kind of you know the NBA is such a small community and says his travelling circus tall man. You know they they are kind of bounce around the continent gone and you. Do you know somebody on twitter. She did an exercise like this. And show that if you only need to go back is about five or six days and you see all the players that go bare played against and then all the players. Those players played against any almost entirely covered within a five day span. Certainly ten days so at that point you know it. Writing was on the wall that they you know they couldn't simply couldn't continue because you don't know who else is in fact good and it's turned out one other player it's been infected with the jazz and all the teams that have been a better played the jazz including the Toronto Raptors in the past ten to fourteen days are now kind of are now being tested so tell me what that means for the raptors in particular because they played the jazz and what it means for sports in Canada well as it relates to the raptors. I mean you know it's just a kind of a complete one eight You know they played in Utah Monday night and I was sort of the end of the longest folks up to the season and you know the raptors were to form their short handed goals.

NBA Storylines Down the Stretch

"Doris Burke is an NBA analyst for ESPN so doors the All star break is over and NBA. Games are back. We wanted to talk to you. About what surprised you so far this season. And how you see the last couple of months shaping up as we enter the homestretch before the playoffs. Let's start in the East right where there is an unequivocal number. One team in Milwaukee they have the best record in the NBA and they are destroying teams winning by an average margin of victory of more than twelve points per game now of the eleven teams that have had a double digit margin of victory over the course of a season. Eight have gone on to win it. All Doris. Is there something that stands between Milwaukee and the NBA Finals? Yeah this is a great question. So in their eight losses the one thread that is consistent throughout those are teams are averaging sixteen point nine threes and philosophically. Their priority is protect. The paint. First and foremost they are so elite. At that that we have not seen this kind of rim protection in the modern NBA. With the possible exception of Spurs team that had both Tim Duncan and David Robinson but the fact of the matter if a team gets hot and really can create shot opportunities then. I think that they can be beat. The other thing that happens is your and you saw in the All Star game. Jaanus is the first player to go twenty five and eleven back to back all star Games but he was over to note points in the fourth quarter because they did playoff teams. We'll do they set up a wall and they said somebody else is going to beat us so well. No one's really doubting the bucks at this point. I think there is still a lot of skepticism about the number two seed in the east the Toronto Raptors. I mean after losing finals. Mvp Kawhi Leonard. They were not seen as favorites coming into this year yet. They have the same record right now that they had at this point last season doors one hand the raptors have been under five hundred against winning teams but on the other they had a lot of. Are we underestimating them? While I'm definitely giving them punchers chance to get to the Eastern Conference finals and a punchers chance to come out in the past historically particularly when Demar Derozan Kyle lowry. Were on the team together. What we knew was they understood how to win in the regular season but they're always seemed to be this level of doubt in their minds when the calendar turn to April but the fact of the matter is. They changed that a year ago with championship. There is a different feel a different presents a different countenance about the entire group and yes unequivocally the record versus plus five hundred versus minus five hundred is concerning but let's remember that their top six guys including Serge Ibaka. Who's having the Best Year of his career? Kyle lowry Markelle Saul Fred Van Bleed. Norman Powell Pascal them. All six of those guys have missed at least ten games so I don't know that we have the clearest picture the other thing working in their favors they have one of the best coaches in the league. Nick nurse wears that head coaches mantle with ease. Why because he's been calling the shots for the vast majority of his career. In any number of circumstances his creative he's fearless. He's a little bit irreverent. And I'm telling you mean ah I give them a punchers chance to get to an east finals and a punchers chance to get out. Did you see this coming at all? Doors not even close and this is the question really ultimately. Do they have enough offense in what you're seeing is to me. What appears to be this grooming of Pascal? Ceac him of all right. You gotta go get your own in those minutes and a playoff circumstance where you don't care whether it's a mid range to a fall away jump shot a jump shot under duress of excellent defense. What matters is I need to put the ball in the basket right now because this game is teetering on our control or there's and we've got to have one and you're watching Pascal. Can he deliver in the postseason? He's been excellent in the regular season. I can't wait to see a play out. I think it feels right now. Like you've got the bucks in a tier of their own and then you've got the raptors celtics heat kind of swirling around each other. There was a feeling ahead of the trade deadline that the heat could vault to that number. Two spot perhaps even contend with the bucks if they really went all in and added Gala Nari. They didn't they did add Igwe Dolla. Do you think that's enough? You know the the last prism through which I saw. Andre Gonzala was a man who was battling an Achilles in the playoff series and seemed to be showing the signs of some age. But what I know. Unequivocally is this man from a basketball intellect standpoint. According to Kerr is one of the smartest in the history of the League. He has got championship. Dna He's got positional versatility on the defensive end that basketball intellect and the ability to process information quickly and to do it under the spotlight of the playoffs. He has all of that. I'm anxious to see how he changes the dynamic the Miami Heat. You know this. They're going to play hard defensively every single night. They're going to mix in one of the most effective zones we see in today's NBA and Eric's bolster is outstanding coach. So right now sitting in that fourth spot how far Jimmy Butler can take them. That'll be interesting. Those young guys. Right Duncan Robinson Tyler Hero Kendrick Nunn all those guys who have performed so well in the regular season when the calendar switches. Can you win with them? Let's see

"nick nurse" Discussed on Xtra Sports Radio 1300 AM

"We are effort in Toronto raptors head coach Nick nurse he's supposed to join me in this spot we're gonna get him in a few moments meantime we talked all about what happened last night brown Steelers mas Garrett losing his head Mason road off losing his helmet it ending up in carrots hand and he then used it to smash would often ahead for that he gets an indefinite suspension report of a for the rest of the regular season and the postseason and an undisclosed fine does the punishment fit the crime that say because we don't know the punishment is but the league did the right thing to act swiftly putatively make a statement by themselves some time and we're getting a lot of reaction some you seem to think that it's not all his fault some you seem to think that it's not his fault at all some you seem to think that the Steelers started it then Mason road off started it because he grabbed it is face mask first because he may have kicked him in the junk already told my thoughts on this I don't know what he said I don't know what he did I really don't give a damn I share the same opinion is Freddie kitchens we're not given him an excuse there is no excuse he's got to maintain his composure I still feel like I can't believe that I have to say this but you can't rip a player's helmet off and smash him in the head with the same helmet or your helmet or anybody else's helmet you can't one eight hundred six three six eight six eight six right will be the conversation up in a minute but we're joined right now by the head coach of the Toronto raptors in its second season is rapper said coach he led them to their first NBA championship in team history to Ronna was how quickly their eight and three they're a Dallas tomorrow night we are joined by their head coach Nick nurse neck it is good to have you back how are you I'm good Jim how are you doing next I'm great it's great to visit with you thanks for making time got a few things to discuss with you starting with that win over Portland Wednesday night Pasco Siachen at thirty six Fred van fleet had thirty neck so I got asked what gets more fired up those two guys going for sixty six but the fact the chill Damian Lillard to just nine points what the nine because that's that's almost impossible that was that was sponsored by the plain order without a bunch injuries Jim yeah we just keep getting better and better I've been playing well seconded nurse Nick the phone connection's not great but I'm a try to work through that and see if it gets a bit better as hard as it is to shut down Willard that's not a fluke now already on this road trip you held lebron to thirteen yell quite its wealth even broke up that box in one against Willard so how pleased are you overall with the defense of execution on this trip yeah I got to be really pleased there's just there's no doubt about it it's you know we're we're hard and were given a tremendous effort on defense and that's one thing but executing certain schemes and unable to do what over the course of one game is also one thing and and then being able to kind of string it up for a few games that are also is concerned by and there are some consistency there are some really really great effort which is what you need to beat that which I can ignore someone jinx in NYC but now that connection sounds good yes he really specifically about those two guys starting with van fleet he played the entire second half against the clippers he played forty minutes against the Blazers you had to practically battle to rest in the fourth quarter so what do you make of the way he has stepped up without Kyle Lowry yeah he's like a like another Kyle Lowry GM is really similar as soon as Hey gang is leadership and just yes the winner only one big time in college you want to play in the gym the criterion won a championship there obviously he was super clutching my finals last year you know he's a you know all the players I can't say enough about it it's it's hard to get him off the floor is that important to our team raptor said coach Nick nursed back in the jungle and then you have Siaka who was the most improved player last year and then Nick you challenge came to be the man the man this year what do you make of the way that he has responded to that challenge so far we've been great is is flooring averages up almost ten points a game but I really love is rebounding it's almost that it's over now it almost ten ten boards a game no the opportunity presented itself you know would quiet any leaving you're always about thirty thirty two shots a game exiting as well as valid billing is done of our go to guy and so far so good he's usually a brace and he's getting better and better and I think this guy yeah second if there is unique every season is new and it's different but this is now obvious is very different give me one a championship and there are significant changes in the roster some kind of curious how did you approach that camp for instance is the identity of the team changed when players change or is the identity consistent no matter who is there well we hope to keep the identity this same gel because you know we we thought we we play defects last year right we were we were good defensive team and they're not going anywhere in this league almost weeks to be honest with you if you're not playing good defense and we try to share the ball and I think I think you know you gotta get through some moments of playing great team basketball on the office of bad but you also got to be able to blend they're going to your bill two guys at the right plans because I just think that selling ends up being in the playoffs or go to war as you're going to be called upon to make big buckets yeah it seems to me that see occam is trending towards superstardom I mean he did take a step when kawaii left it looks like he's taken any normal sleep is an example he was not that long ago that he was not that much of a shooter he's been working on that for a while now Nick and now he's hitting pull up threes maybe there's still more room for improvement there but how far is you come in that regard well it wasn't very good sure all when he when he first got to was German and he really did have a lot of credit we we truly dollars mechanics almost almost back to you know grade school level like repeat it all perfect form sure yeah he really did a great job working through that stuff is mechanics are really sound now balances follow through is you is all that stuff sound he's still got a ways to go just because that you know that kind of develop so we're should be yours there's mechanics are selling his work ethic is great I think it's just a matter of fact we talk I Nick nurse Nick I remember talking to John Calipari after one his title Kentucky and he said that he did not wake up the morning after that game feeling like he was a better coach the day before it you and I spoke shortly after you won your championship now that you've had some time to reflect his winning an NBA championship make you a different coach in any regard well not really John I just thank you you get up and go to work in and for me it's the same yeah you try to get your guys play hard play together with chemistry in some top most men if he was coming that you need to try to figure out how to beat him got a report a game plan together and just approach at the same moment that's great you know that said Nick is crazy as it is you're only in your second season as NBA head coach so is there something maybe you know about being an NBA head coach now that you did not know at this time last year well I think the one thing you do not Jim is that it's a process of getting from October to June right it's it's a it's a growing process it's a learning curve and he does a lot of bass will be played between now and the playoff fields and anyone that has action tank stuff man the playoffs are said to monster super intense stop knows all day planned execution mental toughness making plays and it's it's a process that you got to kind of grow through as the season goes and I think I got to experience out last year isn't on which you know right now I wonder about that process Nick knowing knowing that the post season is that ultimate test that old me grind it says you mentally attached you physically at what point during the regular season do you start to adjust the process to gear up for the postseason process well I think it depends on what do you have yeah you know I think last year we didn't do it till later on resume earning me we had put in a lot of the sensors in the center of that I knew we were going to need to fly off after going through that this year we probably got a few more those in now so we're we're able to use some of those things now but I would say you know what they got to the all star break you start start beating down there looking towards the end of the year tonic nurse for a few more moments Nick I got asked what was a bigger moment for you personally winning your first NBA championship in June or winning your first coach's challenge on Sunday it was better but that when that close and strode was felt pretty darn pretty darn good too I was failed over six yeah good couldn't couldn't get one right so the mini celebration we had there get that first one right any postings you earn both those things and nobody will ever be able to take either one of those things from you I gotta ask you real quickly there are a lot of things you could down after winning the championship and it would seem like maybe relaxing taken the edge offered at the top the list instead you signed on to be the head coach for Canada basketball what was it about the opportunity that excited you and what did you take away from that experience well I think it's a great moment for basketball in Canada yeah most of the town was twenty twenty Canadians in the NBA now there's a great chance for our team to make the Olympics I don't be so the people released today but we're we're hosting the Olympic qualifying tournament and Victoria British Columbia in June so what a chance to get our guys to play hopefully make the Tokyo Olympics at the end of the summer Nick last night you and I talked about your journey in the past and some the stops along the way like that run you had with the Iowa energy in the D. league you lead them to the twenty eleven championship and tonight the plan is you're going to be honored at the Iowa wolves game in the morning what does the time with the energy means to you and what's it mean to you that.

Lowe: What Kawhi and the Raptors have done to the Warriors

"Has been the better team for almost this entire series. I realized that the warriors have injuries. There's no question about that. The warriors just took this game. The why Leonard's been the best player in the playoffs. The best player tonight. He's been the best player in the series. They got your Mendes defense. Zach lowe. This is you've tracked the raptors for so long. They're a team that usually in the moment under pressure, doesn't liver. They've been delivering for a couple of months now. And here they get it again. It's a different team. That's why the team that crumbled under pressure had Rosen and some other players who are under steam anymore. This team has a guy who's already a finals MVP. And I think if they pull this off takes his place among the greatest modern day playoff performers ever. I mean, I don't think that's hyperbole. They win. And he's the finals MVP again. And you know what they did tonight. That was so smart. Because just like the warriors struggle with its anyone besides clay or Steph in this game. I think the rest of them shot under under forty percent. The raptors get concerned when they have to take quiet they bought five minutes when they took him out in the second quarter five minutes, and they actually. Made the deficit less to me. That was so keep because down the stretch Steph looks gassed, he's playing forty minutes, who is thirty six minutes. And I know that doesn't sound like a lot. But at the end of the game it is, it's a big difference. So Nick nurse handle quite beautifully tonight. And I mean he was just so far and away the best player on our priced. He keeps rolling out these lineups at the start of the second and fourth quarter that have both Lowrey and Leonard on the bench and they're playing even or winning. And like if the warriors can't win those minutes, they are not gonna win Saqlain tonight. They did not like when I watched the warriors right now they look like a team that has never gotten comfortable in this series because they don't know who's playing games a game. Now he's that would Nick nurse before game three and he said, you know, it's kinda like a Geely game. I have experience in this goes gonna play in every game like we're fine. We didn't know Klay was gonna play until ten minutes where the game we're fine with that. But for the warriors. I'm I'm poppin and everyone of these huddles like my job is the sideline reporter on on the radio here. It's kind of like big peeping, Tom like sneak in there. And listen and I'm really sure with us of different comparison, but go ahead. Okay. But you you're just get in there and get listened into the huddles. Sometimes you see these, where's WALDO?

How the Warriors' All-Star injuries might change the NBA Finals

"I don't want to give you this update because I do think it's interesting. We just talked to Sean hike in for Bleacher report talking about Covad looney. And how he's going to be out, obviously, going to lean on bookie was very good in game two, but Klay Thompson, I, he, he was out last night, about eight minutes to go hit MRI today that indicated added mild hamstring strain of the hamstring. He is questionable for game three on Wednesday. That's brutal news. Kevon looney was balling out. Did not play in the second half of last night's game. He had an MRI today, and it says that he has non-displaced cartilage fractures, on the right side, which is right by the sternum there from if I'm correct? Right markets. Right. By the sternum it's ripped so he's out indefinitely, which is a brutal blow for the warriors. So we'll see if the adjustments that could make I think the fact that they split in Toronto, it really should bring the narrative of the entire series back. Before tip off of game one. Which is if the warriors, thank you. Thank you. Jake's. You should just said that should have just said questionable just hop on next time. But I do think it brings the narrative back to game before game one tip off where if the warriors are in control, but gonna win. That's my gut feeling right now. They're coming back home for two. That's right now, you're right exactly my fault. It's it's going to be wild Wednesday. It really is. And I think I think the warriors the warriors are back in control here because everybody was talking about how the Torah we had with spinning after game one, you said I mean, didn't the national narratives drive you nuts. To that is a controlling wait a minute. Time out. Stop traffic and they do it again. Do that. Again, fourteen seventeen to twelve. I know I know the, the fans of Toronto were very, very mellow. I heard Marcus Thompsons conversation with John and Tom last week at what's having a good time up there. But I think the national media just stopped traffic for second, because everyone hates the warriors nationally, not out here. They there, the villains. Wants to lose to the fact that the raptors instill game one. They outmanned up with the God game one put everybody in this spin that they were somehow and control the series when, in fact I had to see it yesterday if they could repeat the performance. Now they were damn good. But that third quarter warriors show that they are that much better. It was the classic third quarter warriors gone around. Yeah. I mean we've seen that somebody times out of halftime, making the right adjustments. We've seen it so many times that come on third quarter they smoke you and they opened it up with an eighteen run. Like I said a seventeen point swing down five twelve. Well. I stop that. That's so impossible. If, if you're Nick, nurse you're pulled whatever hair, you have left out. I didn't know them Shah's from massage from Drake from dictators Saggio Drake.

Major pressure on Raptors going into playoffs

"If Easter right now, let's talk about which team is the best in the east or at least which team. Do we have Preston? Are you guys down for this? Yeah. Okay. Let's start might as well start with the raptors even though we're going to get to the bucks. I'm really excited what Maliki Andrews next segment, but let's start with Iraq is because they lost at the buzzer. And that one heart thanks to generally on the Hornets are they lost? But right now fifty one wins on the season for behind the bucks. It'll be hard to catch the butts, even though the bucks are dealing with injuries and stuff. Are you guys feeling trust in the raptors especially coming this postseason because I think this postseason really matters. Everyone looks like as great as you guys are your regular season team when it comes to the postseason things really changed. And I think that's why messiah Jerry really made that difficult but necessary trade to get quite Leonard this year. I have a little bit more than the raptors are you on the same boat, buddy? I I predicted them to get to the NBA finals on the season started. I do have concerns that when I'm not talking about the first round I'm talking when we get to the second round after playing team like Philadelphia that it's going to get heavy dominated eyeso- bought the end of these games. And I think we see it during the year with. Colli asking him to be the closer at the end of these games. And there's been some good results. And there's not been not so good result. So yeah, I have concerns. I have concerns that cholera. It'd be a hundred percent when we get into playoffs here. He's certainly Nick up right now. I concern is that you have a rookie coach, Nick nurse. Who's never it's different. When you move one over. I mean, it really is. Now, he's the head coach and when you get into a seven game series. So yeah, I have I would say I have I have concerns for Toronto kind of where they are right now fifty one in twenty three. Yeah. And you also if you look at it. There's a lot of pressure. I feel like with this Toronto team for what they failed to do if they put on a good show during the regular season. And we know what the postseason has been of this franchise. But I think when you move a piece as popular in Toronto's demar rose and arguably more popular than Vince Carter was in his prime there for the length of time that he was there you could argue that's how big of an impact that this guy had in Toronto. And when you make that change of bringing quiet, Leonard. And then you when you make other changes like valid Shuna. So you bring in a guy like Marcus soul, who's a guy coming off the bench at this point right now, and providing that power and being that guy, I think when you made the moves the Toronto has made the pressure is on this team. I don't think it's as much about a one seater or not having a one c because as you look at previous champions at one seed is is not been in front of those teams names have won the title. But when you look at this Toronto team, they need to be healthy. These two stores have not played. Enough basketball as Toronto would've liked together this season as you look at as you look at Leonard in Lowery and for this team to find that groove and get going down the stretch. I don't think there's a team. I'm curious. What you guys think that has more pressure on them? You could maybe argue Golden State but outside of that. I think it's Toronto with the second most pressure in the NBA going into this this postseason. Yeah. I have to agree with you, Jordan. I do think that's Rhonda has a lot of pressure largely because of how they've exited at the hands of LeBron James or just being swept when they've had. I think NBA lead leading wins. Right. So there's a lot of pressure on
