And while Democrats are echoing President Biden's call for an assault weapons ban in the wake of the Nashville school shooting, not every lawmaker agrees with it. We get more from news nations Jesse knorr. Republicans prefer other ways to combat gun violence. The way to do this is to harden the schools. Arkansas congressman Bruce westerman and Georgia congressman drew Ferguson want to focus on the perpetrators, not their weapons. If you're evil and you're going to do harm, you'll do it with a gun, you'll do it with a car, you'll do it with a knife, you'll do it with a brick.

"Got another great idea from Bill Simmons. 17 picks for Nikola vucevic. You had to do it. Bill, if you get a GM job, just let me just hang out. Just let me just come to the gym and hang out. Yeah, I like the appreciate it. I just wanted to have you in a jump sit in NBA jumpsuit just kind of working with guys on the side. I want to add something into the Brunson thing, and it'll come up a little bit later in this pot, I'm sure. But this is, it's not a character, not a great character. It's just a great great trend. The trend of, who are we bidding against? And this has come up a couple times in some of these deals where I'm just like, so your dad and your dad worked for the Knicks. Who are you guys bidding against, really? What was the conversation Thanksgiving going to be like if this didn't work out for the Knicks. So in the end of the day, couldn't the Knicks maybe have shaved a couple $1 million off of this? Well, I think they did descending salaries, which I thought was smart. My favorite front loaded it. Yeah. My favorite who are they bidding against? I have co winners. Marvin Bagley, who I liked, but three for 37. I just don't know who came in second place for the three for 37 with bags. And then the Gary Harris, two for 26, second year not guaranteed, but it's basically a one for 13. I just want to know who came Did anyone have 5 for him? Four? So are they doing that? Because they want it to be a big trade chip. I don't know. I thought that was weird. Who are we bidding against is a good game show, Chris? You wonder if when the agent like text them the figure, they're like, they wait for a correction. Yeah. If they wait for the light, they wait for the little asterisk tweet, you know what I mean? Sorry, I wasn't 13. At 1.3. Yeah. Who do you have for number four, Tyler? Brian windhorst. Oh yeah. I honestly thought he'd finish higher. He probably could have, and I didn't want to, you know, because he's an unbelievable character, obviously, in the grand scheme of things in terms of effect on the league, you know, probably pretty minimal. I would say. But. Like and this is like, I'm trying to think how you set it up. Windhorst went on first take on the day free agency was due to start..
"nikola vucevic" Discussed on NBA Front Office w/ Keith Smith & Trevor Lane
"Turned it over 21 times in this game. So not shooting well, combined with 21 turnovers. But when demar Derozan Nikola vucevic and led Zach lavine combined issued 21 of 71 from the field, you're not going to win. It's just impossible. Vuch and Levine were combined four of 20 from three. If you just look at their scoring lines, they all look like not too bad. 24 and 17, Levine, 18 points, ten rebounds. Derozan 18 8 and 6. They missed their big momentum shots. Exactly. And you just got to look at those shooting lines. They're just so awful. I mean, they shot 32% now. I guess you look at it and say, hey, you know, we shoot a little bit better. We probably win this game. Just a couple guys make the shots. They usually make and we win this game. But on the flip side, Milwaukee's not going to turn out 21 times again in this series. There are also not going to commit. As poorly as they did either. So that's tough. When you get the other team to play, that's my guess is that this is the worst the bucks will play in this series. And this might be the worst of the bulls will play in the series too. It wasn't a pretty game for sure. I mean, 93 to 86 was the final score, but did you watching this game at any point feel like the bucks were really going to lose? No, I didn't either. And that's what that's what I'm talking about. Even as sloppy as this game was and as ugly as this game was, it felt like the bucks had this well under control pretty much the entire way. Yeah, I can't say that about the next one. Yeah. So let's talk about that. Let's get to your team. The Celtics and the nets, the Celtics. I mean, thriller at the buzzer going up one O Jayson tater with a nice cut. And here's my outsider's perspective. I know you're going to have plenty to say on this one Keith, but it's such a styles clash to me on particularly on the offensive end of the floor watching these two teams..

"If your Boston though, you actually have a pretty real if you move market smart for an expiring contract like a Joe ingles, right? You actually have a pretty real pathway to real flexibility this summer. You can do something like not pick up the Al Horford what is it? I think it's like 13 million guaranteed something like that. Create 13 million of cap space that way. You create the 17 million of cap space that you get by not having Marcus smart on the roster for next season. I personally think that it would be pretty easy to move some of their younger players. Like if they wanted to move that Romeo Langford deal off of the books for a second round pick or something, I think a lot of teams would probably be pretty interested in taking a flyer on him. It's actually pretty easy for them to get to a point where they have real flexibility going into this off season with basically like Jayson Tatum, jaylen Brown, Robert Williams as like the three guys that they're building around and then keep a couple of young guys on the roster as well. I mean if I'm them, I'm trying to do that because I think that this season for Boston look, they're not good enough to win a title. We just strongly believe that, right? Yeah, yeah, they're not winning the title this year. I mean, they were playing team. Maybe? Yeah, like, they're somewhere between the 6 and the 8 seed. Yeah, maybe the jacket. Right. They sneak if they get the 5 C they snuck there. Totally. So you're in that ballpark, right? You and I both believe that just because of the ridiculous advantage they have of having jaylen Brown and Jason Tatum that their aims should be higher. I kind of think that this season does not matter for Boston. The season that matters is next season because that's when jaylen Brown has two years left on his deal going into next season. They need to start proving starting next season to jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum that they're building something sustainable that they can actually build around them long term. Now I think that there is a world also where I wonder if they could be like the third team in a deal for Ben Simmons and end up with Ben Simmons. Right, like that gets complicated and I don't know how you would necessarily do it, salary wise, like it would have to involve Al Horford going somewhere else and then like it almost have to involve maybe we'll pitch the Ben Simmons Celtic steel later. Because I have an idea. Someone asked me about jaylen Brown for Ben Simmons. And I was like, why would Boston give up Jalen Brown? No, I have a people are crazy, man. Yeah, no, I would much rather have jaylen Brown than men sentence. I have a weird three team trade that I think could actually make some sense for everyone. His Oklahoma City in it? No, it involves Portland. But we'll talk about that when we move to Ben Simmons here. And we'll talk about that in a minute. As we kind of move through this. But if your Boston, you need to start proving to jaylen Brown and Jason Tatum starting next season, I think that you can build a championship contender. The best way for them to do that, I think, is to clear out everything on the roster outside of Robert Williams. Next to those guys and try to build new. Just like the Chicago Bulls did around Zach lavine and Nikola vucevic this summer. Like that, that, to me, is the pathway for the Celtics. Get all sorts of flexibility, do it that way. I frankly think and this is why I go back to the Joe engels and first round pick for Marcus smart move because I frankly think they'd probably be if not the same, maybe even a little bit better with Joe ingles right now than Marcus smart because I think that they just really need the specific skills that Joe ingles brings to having like a competent well flowing offense. But man, I think that that's the pathway for the Celtics. They need to kind of clear out everyone around jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum. Not trade jaylen Brown or Jason Tatum. That just doesn't make any sense to me, unless, again, I think that what happens is you get two really good players and people start to put their own spin on everything. Oh, well, Jason Tatum and jaylen Brown don't get along. Man, I don't know. I don't pay attention to any of that stuff, so it will catch me by surprise if that's true. But we heard that about embiid Simmons along a long time ago too and certainly I guess that has kind of come to head. But I don't care. You've got two of those guys that are really, really impossible to find in the league. You don't give up either one of them. Because guess what? Look around the league. You know what the bulls did. They went out and they got a couple of connectors. And then they duplicated Zach lavine with demar Derozan, right? They've got an inside out attack with guards now. So smart teams figure it out. Is Boston smart. That's what we're going to find out. Is bossing going to find a way to put three guys around Jason Tatum and jaylen Brown that maximize them. Forget the team stuff. Stop thinking about it as a basketball team. You got to optimize those two guys and then build the team out. You've got the hard things to get. Boston is yet to do that. For whatever reason, stubbornness, whatever you want, the offense, where everybody tries to touch the ball, but nobody ever gets to the basket or gets to the free throw line, that they're still running, it's frustrating. So there are systemic issues there. Part of it is not having good fits around those two guys. Part of it is the way that they do things. Just isn't very good. So, you know, improve or don't. And then those guys leave as free agents. This is the beauty of free agency. Yeah, they need to figure out how they can build around. And look like, I don't mean to absolve jaylen Brown and Jason Tatum. Both of them. Well, they could particularly, I think both of them, some of the issues that people say about those two playing together, I think are real. They both do tend to stop the ball. Jalen Brown is not an incredible passer in terms of making reads for his teammates. I think Jayson Tatum is a pretty good passer, but Jason Tatum has a propensity to hang onto the ball a little bit more in a little bit longer and survey the scene to where it can sometimes stagnate what Boston is doing on offense. And that combo together, I think can be can lead to stagnant offense. But to me, Chicago, again, is showing that with guys that are great connective tissue players like Lonzo Ball and Alex Caruso, kind of like you're saying, Dave, you can work through having guys like Zach lavine and demar Derozan both of whom do you like to survey? Do you like to create their own shot in both of whom are willing passers, but much better on the scoring front than on the passing front, you can make that work. And I think that what the bulls did this summer is the pathway for the Celtics. And I think that if I'm Brad Stevens, who's now running the show, I think there are real pathways to get there. And I think that the pathways get there to be honest probably by moving Marcus smart. I think that that's kind of the move for them at this point. I feel bad saying it because I think Marcus smart is mister Celtic and he kind of stands for everything that that organization has stood for over the course of the last what, 7 years that he's been there, it feels like, but I don't know. I'm just at the point where I think that it might be time for a change there. And you can't make the change. You don't keep market smart to move jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum. Yeah. Yeah, I mean, that is legit. I don't know. Anybody thinking that this team should or is going to move jaylen Brown or Jason Tatum? Now watch them trade Jason Tatum next week and I look like a real idiot. But I just don't see that happening. Okay, let's go to let's take a quick commercial break and then we'll move to the Ben Simmons of it all because I think that that is the biggest name on the market that actually could be moved this season..
"nikola vucevic" Discussed on Winning Plays
"Yeah, you're generating that and going back to the bulls for a second. We've been having a really good pre season, which who the hell knows what that means, but can I tell you? Yeah. That means nothing. Yeah. Okay. Well, so that you know record for the Celtics is like. For the Celtics. It's wrong. Yeah, but only when the Celtics win. If they lose, it doesn't matter. It doesn't matter yet. But did you see who's starting for the bulls, though? Yes. Exactly. Yes. We're starting at shooting right now. Nikola vucevic. Yep. I'm missing two others. The shooting. Demar Derozan, and then there's one name that you are very familiar with from Boston, who's also starting. Oh, dude, yeah, they svante. Javonte green has put up some really nice numbers. In Chicago as a 5th man and who knows if to watch. I mean, he started in the preseason last year for the Celtics and then that lineup kind of disappeared as the season went on. But that's another one. Again, when you look back at it, that would have been a great 15th guy to have here. And I'm not going to complain about the test guy. And they kept, you keep, you don't dump Carson Edwards to keep Jason Tatum's like, buddy, who's giving you something? Was there ever an explanation? I mean, the explanation was they were getting under the tax. And I think what happened here was it was so close to the buzzer at the trade deadline is that the bulls just held the facility for an office over a barrel and said to take the salary that was necessary to keep them under the tax. So that was tice. That was devonte green and they had to send money. A couple of $1 million of both of those guys. To make it work. And so the bowls are probably like, wow, we'll give a Carson effort. They're like, no, or if we take ours ever, you gotta give us like $6 million, something outrageous. Like, all right, fine, devonte green. And I don't know for sure that's how it happened, but just the timing wise, that deal came like after the buzzer. So I think it was a situation where everything else that they may have been doing fell apart, which can happen, but now you look at a year later and Carson's, you know, looking hopefully he's looking at deals overseas right now. You got dunked by Memphis before the preexisting even started. And now green is signed for cheap in Chicago and actually playing meaningful minutes there. So again, just appreciating we don't know the sellers have plenty of wing help there, and ne Smith Langford will get to all these guys a little bit that are looking good, but that was a guy in terms of roles and fit that probably should have just taught onto.
"nikola vucevic" Discussed on Game Theory Podcast
"And he's older, so there's a chance that the third year of that deal is not particularly good. I just kind of don't care. I will do. I don't care. He is really good. And I think that the people who have kind of brought him up as this ball dominant like black hole of basketball, just haven't watched him play the last couple of years. Like you watch him in San Antonio, he was one of really has developed as a great passer. This is something that I mentioned late in his Toronto tenure that he was really getting better as a passer. Nobody seemed to believe me then. It seems like the people who have watched him in San Antonio are starting to believe now that he is an actual passer. Like you can throw him the ball on a second side action. He can get into the paint and he makes high level kick out past as he makes for high level dump off passes. He's a really good pick and roll playmaker for a team that needs secondary creation next to Zach lavine in the backward. Lonzo Ball is a transition like out on the break, grab and go, we're gonna get the offense going guy. And he's a great floor spacer in the half court and he's good defensively. He does a lot of different stuff. And I think that's a great signing for them too. And we'll talk about that in a minute. Zach Levine needs help, though. In terms of creating offense. And I think that Nikola vucevic is going to work as a really good pick and roll partner for both of those guys. They're going to have 48 minutes of really high level offensive creation out on the court now because you can stagger the Zach lavine and demar Derozan minutes. I think this is a home run off season for Chicago. The more I think about it, the more I really love what they did, even if I do agree with some of the criticism that they may have topped themselves out a bit, but I think that where they topped themselves out was more in trading for vucevic as opposed to what they did this off season. This off season is a reaction to moving Wendell Carter and multiple first round picks for Nikola vucevic and trying to keep Zach lavine, but once you do that and decide to go all in on the vucevic Levine corps, this is the best move that you can make following that move in order to give this core a chance at least. Yeah, I think what you just said hit the nail on the head. I think people you could read the tea leaves and it was very clear that Chicago last year making the vujovic deal was tired of being blah. And they weren't very good after the trade, but it was set up for like we just talked about to do something this summer and to get it was a trickle down effect. It was the vuchevich trade was setting the tone for what was going to come this year that they were going to be trying to be in the playoff picture that they were going to try to not like you said, push past the play in and be a playoff team. Offensively, they're going to be just a joy to watch. I think on paper, it looks like it could be very fun. Defensively, obviously there's questions. But you add a solid to good defender and Lonzo, pat Williams, I think, is ready to take that leap..

"And it's good to see ya. Think if you look at our our forests in chicago. This is his first big move right. He comes over from denver where they're built around very skilled european center and his first move is to trade draft picks and a young prospect. That hasn't worked out for a skilled european center. I think it's very very fascinating. The fact that they are both named nikola just takes it to the next level now in terms of kind of their longer term play. I think it was the right idea to cut out on. Wendell carter He is looked overwhelmed. A lot to me. I really liked him as a prospect kind of coming into the draft but the injury issues have absolutely been an issue. has it really found an offensive role. Not sure he's ever really gonna develop into kind of that stretch five that could really make him super useful and i'm just wondering what is his ceiling. Right i mean is he gonna wind up being a guy who is just kind of a solid backup but not a full time starter. If you can't stay healthy who knows. I do feel bad for orlando's training staff. I mean marquel foltz wendel carter junior mogambo and jonathan isaac. If you could turn injuries off that team sounds pretty. Awesome for the next three or four years and really really intriguing. Unfortunately life isn't a video game and that could wind up being a really busy couple years for orlando's training staff and a really couple frustrating years for orlando's fan base the draft picks are interesting chicago could potentially move into the playoff picture in which case those draft picks might both be outside of the lottery. Which would be a little bit. Frustrating but orlando does get significantly worse in the short term. So they're sort of angling potentially to have the worst record in the league this year so if they come out of this with the number one pick. They deserve to be saluted kind of even more than they already were. I think when you're adding up all the pics god for the three starters they sent out. It's a good package. It's not an absolutely amazing package. I probably think that they could have gotten more had. They pulled the plug earlier. But i do think that it was pass time to do this. And so i kinda you know tip my hat to them for for getting it done hanging onto vucevic and having him just kind of stumble around the court for another season with no real end game. Did it make sense for them. It didn't make sense for him either and their chicago is pretty interesting right. Like you put him together was act levin of pick and pop spacing opportunities. They're going to be high-powered. I think a big question. A lot of people had immediately after the trade was well. What's going on with this front court with lowery marken and nikola vucevic. Those guys aren't going to be able to guard anybody true but then they go out and grab daniel ties from the boston celtics who are trying to cut corners and slash their luxury tax bill. And all that stuff michael now. They got a pretty nice compliment. Their offense between a vucevic entice right. I mean that's a pretty. That's a pretty solid. Set up there in the middle. So i think on balance. It's a big upgrade inside for the bulls. I don't know if. I think that they have any shot whatsoever to win a first round series..
Celtics Trade Rumors: Nikola Vucevic
"Do have interesting trade rumors. We didn't want to wait till after to get to them and they involve a bunch of big names that we've been kicking around on the thread on the on the live streams all of this time some really big fish out there. The Celtics are supposedly in on so we'll go Name by name. But again, this is Shams very plugged in the Athletic Club throwing out vucevic throwing out Jeremy Grant throwing out Harrison Barnes. These are all enticing names and honestly those three plus there and Gordon are probably the big fish house on the market Garden Of course dealing with the sprained ankle. So teams are wait and see there but those are the big names out there. We've been hearing them all the time. I'm going to start with Bobby's boy boo Savages. Part of that report was that it's going to be a massive Hall that we've been debating on all day Bobby what that actually entails but first this you turned on this guy meaning turned back towards this guy as Gore guy tell us why tell us what you think what you'd be willing to give up here for the Celtics to get it done. So I was never the biggest fan him and the sticks were previously invested in him during that Kemba Walker offseason. They were hot on him cuz they had the max cap space after Kyrie and Mortadella could have filled him down the middle. So there's a connection there. Obviously Kemba came along and grab that bone. Now, you have the chance to have four All-Stars on the team of chemicals affect them. They hated it. Yeah, and I still don't love it now, but I think context is everything you don't have cap space forever now wage only so many ways you can improve in the future. So why not grab the best player available? And I think out of all the options were going to talk about today. This guy's an All-Star. He pushes 30 points a game on many birth. It's eye dominant. Rebounder. Probably one of the best rebounders in basketball this year defense. We'll see I think it's all situational but he's kind of a disaster down there in Orlando defensive or a that could change in Boston and the three-point shot by zone is the best 3-point shooter above the break and basketball this year. So that's perfect in Boston pick-and-pop off and he'd get open shots above the are called a there he can post up he's seven feet. I know people will love that. He's a real big so he just give them a bunch of different options and outlets for offense and size that they don't have right now and this is what I love about and to John if they can find a way to clear types in a potential deal here clear Thompson in a game here and you're left with Rob and bukovic. See the dream. That's the dream. So look at it this way though. If you're the other team coming back, your don't want to take on Thompson or Thai so, you know, Rob is automatic berth. Certainly, if you're going to go big, you know to go get somebody else's big. I don't see any world in which you make a trade really any trade at this point in Rob Williams is still a Celtic. So anybody at home saying do do it do it I think has to get used to kind of giving up on their Binky which is Rob Williams, which is going to be hard for a lot of Celtics fans to be able to live with that.

Actually, Anthony gets hurt during the game. Look, I get that injuries were part of the game. But is there any part of you that wants to say, man? Can you give us a break? How and why does this keep happening to us? It's definitely been a challenging season first when it comes to injuries, I don't think of ever been part of a team that has that many injuries means to start a season. No. One of our main players is out already before the season starts, then few games in our point guard number killed, holds get hurt out for the season and then there's just been a lot of guys in and out. We get somebody back. Someone else gets hurt, so Difficult, especially in this heat. During this season, when schedules condensed there isn't as much times and practice and And do all that It's been difficult, but you know the other day with we can't sit here and complain. We had to keep on moving and playing and, you know, hopefully, you know, things will turn around first quickly. Nicola motivates my guest at the same time you been able to really step things up. I mean, despite that, and what you just said, you're putting up huge numbers. For example, on Friday, you went off for 43 19 and win over Chicago. You're just a third player in magic history to have a game with those numbers afterwards, even shack posted on Instagram quote The big man is back in Gratz. What was that game like for you? And what did it mean to get some love and respect from shack? It was great. It was getting respect from, you know, uh and prior India, legends and especially shy who played for the magic was had a huge impact on what? The magic part today. I know many people were friends of the magic because you know when him and Penny were playing there, so that was means a lot. And obviously, he's one of the most best big man, No dominant and best big man. Territory game. So always means a lot on a Ford I gave. I mean, I just was feeling good, and I think there isn't really an explanation. I think if you talk to most players when they get in Some kind of zone and I just feel like every shot's going to go in and just, you know, just happened that times in No, I've got it going early on. My team is able to find me and I just want to stay aggressive and No, it was a tough stretch for us. We haven't way have lost couple games in a row, and I just wanted it all. Once I was feeling you just want to come and try to take over and have the team win. And I was really happy that he came into the wind because not my last career high. Came in the law so you don't enjoy it as much So this one was really enjoyable for me Toe do it, especially because I had to make two free coast. It kind of close the game off at the end for us to win it. So it was a great feeling. And I know very happy that we won the game as well. Call of Booty bitches. My guest. The Orlando Magic Center is joining us once again. Now you've already been an all star and you're getting a lot of attention. And a lot of run is potential. All stars yet again this year. What would it mean to you to be voted to another All Star game? Idea mean everything to me be a huge honor. It's very, very difficult to make the all Star you know, every year. It's only 12 30 from each conference, and I mean every year there, you know many players that interplay grade and there's always new guys that No, I haven't been also inspired at you. No comment have great teeth and because it's very difficult to make it and remember, first year you know, I was in a lot of talks and Was waiting waiting and you know it happens and, you know, it's just such a really huge honor because you think about all the great great players actually never had a chance to make it because of the head of the great players in that position, or For whatever reason, and so would be a huge honor for me not to make it twice. We've really beaten something. I'll be really proud of S O u know I hope for the best in and they try to natural Gloated too much and just focus on that play and on the team and have the team won as many games as we can, but for sure, huge honor. But again, there are a lot of great players are playing this year whenever you talk about it, but we'll see hoping for the best. Don't ask you this. It would be actually be a great honor, of course. Now the All Star game is being played in Atlanta and some players or a little less than thrilled that there actually is going to be an All Star game because of the pandemic because of the travel. Any number of reasons. How do you feel about that? I can understand where they're coming from, You know, especially guys that have played a lot of games nor play deep in the playoffs and with everything going on. No, because we thought there wasn't gonna be one. So you're thinking maybe change to take a little bit of a break and you know I could focus for the second part of season, but Same time. You know they're all star game. It's you know, part of the N V. A. It's something that you know. Fans really love and enjoy. And It's not part of history of the NBA, and so I think it will be will be also great. Eo, uh, have a straight a game and had, you know, defense changed to watch us. Watch 24 best players in the NBA play and S O B. A big be very well organized by the NBA. They did make sure everybody's safe and think when it comes to that. Don't think there'd be any issues on the things that also For the great opportunity to put a huge a chauffeur depend, so I think, you know, I can understand both sides. I think it's good to have it. You know, with everything going on. I think people need something positive. They need something.
