"Okay. I think it probably goes without saying that the nets or the team that nobody would have really wanted their situation. Maybe the nets did, you know, but I imagine that they would have preferred the Kevin Durant wanted to stay. You want me to get real spicy or you want me to you want me to be like emerald and kick it up a notch later. Oh, throw the spice out there. Let's shake it out onto the plate right now. Okay. This'll be a little spicy. I'll quantify it, but the warriors, as we talk about, you know, how great this team, how great their forecast was and it still is, I think. But part of what we looked at when we looked at their roster of guys and, you know, who was an impact who were impact players in this finals run. Gary Payton and Otto Porter were guys that really mattered in this run. Maybe it was who they were playing, whatever else you want to say, fine. Losing those two guys hurts to some extent. You're projecting that guys can replace them and replenish what they gave you. But they're young guys. They might be ready. They may not be ready. They may not be ready ultimately for the stage. You could have other injuries that make those guys incapable of giving you what they gave you. But I think in particular, I think you can replace an auto Porter type. So I'm curious to see who they might be able to pick up to do that sort of thing. Painting, I think, hurts them. Losing Peyton really hurts them. And I don't even think it's debatable that he was important enough with that group to have been a starter with that group, particularly in a matchup against the Celtics. They looked old. They looked on athletic when they were playing against the grizzlies in part because Peyton was not there after he got hurt..

"Like the warriors are just building a wall packing in the paint when Jayson Tatum and jaylen Brown put the ball on the court and tried to drive to the hoop. And they got to reestablish that spacing that they had in game one. The big reason why that fourth quarter why they went off in game one is because they were driving kicking right there penetrating and then they were leaving Al Horford and smart and Derek white wide open for these three pointers. They got to get back to playing that type of basketball and I think that maybe they have a pretty good chance in this series, but look, if Andrew Wiggins and Otto Porter and Jordan Poole beat you, then I think, you know, so you got to take your chances there. You just got to take your chances. I think the Celtics are as in good a shape as you could possibly be in an NBA Finals. It's not going to be easy. You don't get to this round and have it be a cake walk. So we'll see what ends up happening with Boston big game tomorrow night. That's kind of the series, right? The winner of a game three to one one series. More times than not, I'm sure the math tells you that the winner of game three in that situation ends up going on to win the series with a vast majority of the time. So big game tomorrow night for the Celtics, the Red Sox are still on the West Coast, right? They're still an angels. They're back to 500 now. They're kind of moving a little bit. Michael walker throwing a complete game, one run last night. You know, Sarah, you all about high and blue and we found Michael waka. That's a check in his box. That's a positive in his box. Yeah, so it is what the a's and the angels back to back or two of the worst teams in baseball right now, right? I think the angels have lost like 12 in a row. The angels were good and then they right, they're on they're on a 12 game loser. They just fired their manager. Today, by the way, the modern king of analytics, Joe Maddon, not cutting it. I wonder why that is. Has the two best players in baseball still can't win..

"He finished this game plus 13, everyone said that this is what I was talking about earlier about like switching and being hunted. It's like just let these pros play sometimes and sometimes as a coach you get inside your own head, you think that Tillman is going to defend better because someone was a little bit more someone was getting cooked so it's like Adam's finishes plus 13. I know a lot of stuff goes into that. He's just he's critical on the screens. He's critical off ball screens. He's critical on ball screens to offensive communication. He's critical on the offensive glass, creating second chance. 6 offensive rebalance. He was killing the glass. Yes, he had 6 offensive 15 rebounds total. Three assists. And it's like, what he does for jaren Jackson junior as well can not be overstated. In terms of Jaron staying out of foul trouble in terms of Jaron getting to guard four a little bit more, I know that Otto Porter went off and hit some threes and part that's partially because Jaron's out there is also trying to patrol the paint. But I just liked starting Steven Adams and I want to see this team with job with Adams. Be itself. With everyone kind of in roles that they were in during the regular season. I'm not saying that they can definitely win three in a row that would be surprising. But if you went to in a row, which I think they could do and then you go to a game 7 and anything happens, Jordan Poole sprains his ankle. I'm not ruling out a grizzlies come back here. I hope they get it to 7. I think they'll get it to 6, but that was a, I don't know how the teams do it. I've been asking players about it in Phoenix. And you know, Giannis talked about it after the game, you know, emotions are for movies, not for basketball, but I honestly think it's such an under discussed aspect of the playoffs and it's impossible to quantify..

"Out like you include the defense which it just. It's it's still so like i. I don't know if people are watching when they say oh as defense is better and then they leave it there because it's defense like is so it's so bad and there's only moments where it's it looks better where he comes from behind with a block but it's not consistent right and if you watch the games You know his teammates are const. Teammates in his coaches are constantly on him. And i wrote a piece about this last year. With a ton of footage all these clips of just frustration from teammates and coaches. And honestly i haven't i. You know. I keep a notebook when i'm watching games now and i always have and in it. I could write the same column this year. There's plenty of examples. So i don't know if he's improving on that end. I don't know how the money is going to impact them. You want to speculate about stuff like that but who knows And who knows physically how he's going to hold up. Obviously there's there's been questioned marks and red flags and a cetera et cetera about his body. But i dunno. I just wouldn't feel super great about paying him that much money if i were the gm of what's the denver nuggets who is very smart and knows what he's doing and his waist forgotten more about basketball than i've ever known but that's just how i what's the worst case scenario. There is it. Like i'm thinking in my head like is it. It's way too early. But is it like otto porter wizards sort of scenario where you max out somebody for their shooting ability but they don't create a whole lot for other people and then they're hurt like i mean that would be pretty bad because we thought we thought off of one of those they had like one really decent plop run right where we're just watching otto porter and his progression and we're watching bill. We're watching wall. And we're thinking that there's ability to contend for like the next few years particularly of porter takes a jump and then not only. Does it not come chicken and the egg. Maybe it doesn't come because he's not consistently on the court enough or maybe it just doesn't come because it wasn't going to come But to me that's my fear. Except for the fact that michael porter already had injury concerns the whole reason the draft to begin with and denver was able to get them to begin with. So i mean it's early and you don't wanna just bring up injury just because it's convenient to bring it up but yeah. This was my concern. I think when. I wrote my piece To start the season about like the seven biggest x. factors. He was actually. The guy led the peace with not. Because i didn't have ability and figured he'd be better than this. Hell i figure you know. Ishmael will be better than this. I loved by a lot of people will be better than this. But it was more. That i think to your overrated underrated question. Initially i thought a lot of people are starting to put the cart before the horse with him. Because i think they see how many points per game he averages and how good shooter he is and assume that he has a bigger role in their offense than he does. And i'm sitting there washing wool barton kind of buses hump fresh off his injuries for the last couple of years without jamal murray there. I don't love that. i love that. He's handling the ball and getting back into the rhythm of the offense and getting his feet wet again..

"Of other players who have come onto the scene as wing players have gotten bags. Having done phenomenally well. Otto porter comes to mind by year three or four and then just never got any better or even regressed. Not saying that's going to happen with mikhail. I've a lot of stock and mikhail bridges but the difference in the kirkland champagne and we'll be the difference between the otto porter outcome and the like kawhi leonard out the best case scenario outcome or whatever which is also a little bit ridiculous. He's gonna fall somewhere in the middle but it's just how do you even begin to project that will guys twenty-three see did the one thing and sorry. Mark will give your podcast back at some point here. All there are zero red flags with michelle bridges zero and. I do think that what's become lost in. The conversation about de'andre in is that there are some small red flags in his regular season performances in. I'm sorry i'm sorry you don't think confidence is red flag because i don't think that's inherently something that Well i don't have it you don't have it no. I don't necessarily consider that the same. Because i mean you could argue that same thing exists with andrea and. I do think that players tend to get more confident over time after time in the nba. Like i know what you mean like. There's like a star player element confidence where you. I don't know that thing that thing that none of us know how to describe that we always talk about the star players. have maybe neither of them have it But i guess my point is on any random regular season game mckell. Bridges is going one hundred ten percent every single time. And that is not necessarily the case with de'andre..

"I wanna shout out here as being so much better if everyone was in their prime. It's gotta be the golden state warriors. Oh yeah right like. They won rhyme. Yeah draymond bullet steph two time. Mvp completely revolutionized the sport of draymond green same deal basically on the other end. You have klay thompson second-grade shooter who ever lived as you said it would dollar. In his prime we never even saw that. During the title run during the dynasty was a little bit past it for sure definitely offensively and you know they have otto porter. They have no money. Lisa and some real time steel. Yes exactly and we got some. I just wanna say it real quickly. We got some Some mentioned the elites My mic calling him. A steel in reference to our lakers slander from the last episode. And i just wanna say dominion leads has better than than just got gotta state that as a factor but anyway the warriors did you have the warriors as a team that you work. So as you mentioned the perot the issue at this exercise and not that liam's questions not great is like you mentioned the old players in this league or too concentrated on the contenders once. You take out the lakers in nets this just becomes more difficult right. I mean the warriors are obviously the pick. I mean even prime otto porter someone who you neglect dimension. Someone who. I do think it's going to be close games from the digital okay. I just the hake. The mindless went black. Yeah they're they're really the ones i mean they would be incredible. I mean if you get twenty sixteen steph Twenty sixteen clay twenty fifteen probably dream on two thousand sixteen draymond. They're they're absolutely nuts. They're absolutely nuts but then the heater. Good one because you really just have to look at the old rosters on the on the around the league right. I think the heat of the second oldest roster in the nba. You get lowery a little bit younger. A little bit. Healthier mentioned pj talker. We don't really know what prime bama's so maybe even a better version bam prime victory will depot That would be a player. Yeah i mean prime lowry and primal depot. Back court is spectacular. So yeah i think those are the warriors in the heat are really to jumped out because you have to look at the older officers and are you criticizing me for saying looking at the younger rosters. But you got. I mean. listen the team that came to mind a prime version of the atlanta hawks. Does he give all those guys. Yeah another two three years in the league. then you also get the best version of cappella. Yeah that that was. The one that really sets me was the hawks. Because i think that i was going to trae young. We get to this bradley beal question. But that's a team that i think. Ignore kind of their playoff success. I think that's a team that could be better over the next two or three years. They don't necessarily make it that far again. In the playoffs there will be no spoiler a lot of times talking about the atlanta hawks. And indu time on this podcast. I do think that if you add. Prime i had them on here even with the way i was looking at it. 'cause it's like you add prime gallo and prime lou will to what they already have and it's just like that's that's scary right there. Like prime gallo is basically a borderline all star and he was really good for them last year as well so that would be..

"A high level kinney play the point of attack and be one of the better permanent defenders. That's that's the side of the ball that really matters Especially if you're going to go small like they're they are definitely going to do I also look it like okay. So they have reporter on a vet men. They add igwe doll on that men. Be alita on a vet man. Those are like three Steals we talk about the brooklyn accent. That's that's too absolute steals. Mb leads okay. Okay you're you're bringing your your heat. Culture bias into this thing. I watched can play a good amount last year. And i think he's a. I don't know if he's a steel. He's i think he's still on that contract personally. I i don't know. I think that's good value. Let's say for a good team. Listen there's a reason there wasn't like the kris haines tweet. That was really turned down more money. He turned down the full mid-level he turned on five years and fifty million from the pelicans There's there's a reason we didn't get one of the all that is fair. The other part of the warriors are just the fact that they have three blue chip prospects for trade like yes. Here's one thing throw out about the warriors One thing i. I was doing to kind of get prepared for this. Exercise was just looking at the depths of every west conference team. I love doing that. You're doing okay. I was preparing for the podcast. Frank for the podcast and here we go minister. Oh i watched I looked up the statistic this very obscure statistic about what someone's suits on sundays at one pm. I think that they in an ideal world to me. They're able to turn wiggins into two players instead of one. Because i think their roster mouse is also a little off for. They have a lot of people who should be playing power forward and center at a lot of people who should be playing one of the two guards spots. And i think they could use you know another otto porter type basically if as you say auto borders not able to do anything because of a according to you..

"Didn't get it done. They did not get to cowburn guy wanted to beginning and did they do the best. They could with the minimum. Yeah i think they did. Did they get experience along the way which was probably their number one party yes they did but another huge priority that was stated publicly by myers was a legit backup. Point guard didn't do that. She owes campell here and there but he's not that and so it's a disappointment. And so i think in look. The biggest edition was out of puerto junior. And there's no guarantee he's going to be out. I mean i know there. He looks healthy. Says he feels good but the type of back injury that he was ill with that stuff could flare up ongoing and it's bothering him for two years. Now yeah like. There is no guarantee that he'll be available for the majority of mexican. He's out the most most next season. How is this freezing. Look it's gonna look like a train wreck so given to be minus. I think that's fair. I was gonna say seed plus but if you wanna talk me into minus okay with that for all the reasons. i know. The names were sexy. No otto porter used to be basically a max guy. I know that bill has been a guy that orders fans have been aware of for very long time. Dodge thing kind of saves the offseason just from a feel-good perspective warriors. Fans can't hate this. That's part of why. But when you talk about okay did they go out and get a legit six man can count on every night and did you go out and get a legit backup point guard even on every night. I don't think that they did that. I think they actually kinda missed. Not just one spot but to so to recap. We gave the draft name. Honors trades aka trade of the and free. Agency of b minus. I think overall we're giving we're going to get be the offseason. That almost feels like too good. Or i feel like we should give it. A b minus. Okay may maybe we should just revise and give free agency plastic you relating to four when you make the rules give us. Yeah we're gonna give this. Plus i'm trying to make it make sense And then we'll We'll give the overall grade a. B. modest look. It was okay. Hey offseason but it didn't accomplish the top objectives which was to get a key difference maker and to make sure that you have a true six man that didn't happen so you cannot given a b. minus extra generous B minus bob. You detri- but it didn't work out. It's just to go. yeah. And i don't even know how much is on the front office. I just think that sometimes it's a circumstance like this is a very different. Nba now with the warriors are sort of learning how hard this stuff is like. This wasn't like everything together. Perfectly like it did for four..

"Think they got someone and otto porter who they thought was probably going to be a mid level guy and they got him on a minimum so they do feel good about that. I honestly think almost be a different conversation among the fanbase if you just signed port of mid because the fans would feel at least good at least we sign them to a mid level. At least we use this acid that we had. I think there's just frustration among fans like we we have this asset that we didn't use and we're in a position where we need to be using all the assets at our disposal and that was their biggest asset in free agency their biggest tool to add talent and given the fact that they're deepen the luxury tax. There's just not a lot of pass. But you know you. And i both route stories about a week ago breaking out why they were unlikely to use the mid level and sometimes it takes actually writing something and doing the indepth research that goes into writing an article to fully understand something and when i wrote that story. It's glaringly apparent to me that made no sense to use the level given the financial repercussions you're looking at at at whoever they signed to the mid level costing effectively around thirty million dollars when you when you factor in the luxury tax implications you're getting close to the four hundred million dollars threshold between salary and luxury taxes. Bombers has already gone on the record and said if were of our payrolls over four hundred million dollars and we don't want time will actually get fired right. And so bob come on like don't say that dozen public. I'm all about transparency. But i appreciate it because edify their decision making now like that months ago. Whereas we're looking at that and i'll be like oh. We should've known this could happen. Yeah they those ways. They could've avoided that four hundred million dollar mark even in using the mid level exception right If they don't carry fifteen guys on that.

"You're going to be able to find minutes for all of those guys at that position. I think it's gonna be tough especially considering they wanna get off the minutes. I don't concilazione playing eighteen minutes a game Batons who is on an eighty million dollar contract exactly and now you wonder what his role is going to be coming into it. I just i feel like there is something there that could potentially bring in a wing potentially bring in another guard. They could still use some playmaking they could still use. Help defensively like you said. That could be one solution for all of it. I don't know where where they're going to go the stuff they've got three centers who command playing time to i mean gifford was great for them down the stretch Thomas bryant and mantras herald or a little bit redundant they kind of give you a lot of the same stuff energy. They're screening role guys. Brian can shoot the three but he's going to miss the beginning of this year so we don't know his exact timetable coming off in asia. I liked thomas brian. I think he's made again. The questions are always going to be defense and rebounding with him. I think he's gotten incrementally better at those things but not better enough that you trust him to really anchor a playoff team for twenty five minutes. A game but offensively. He's he's got a chance to be really dynamic. Offensively i mean. He shot seventy five percent at the rim two years in a row and remember his rookie year. He shot something. Like seventy eight or seventy nine percent at the rim and i was wondering that is that a sustainable thing for him and he came out his second year when he was dealing with foot injuries to and he did it again a second year. He's he's not this guy who's going to finish over you very often. But he's really skilled finishing around the rim sets good screens rolls really hard and you talk about propping up regular season another way that you can prop up. A regular season is just have have have guys who play really really hard even when they're going up against the pistons in mid february and it's the second night of back to back. I think bryant is one of those guys. He's very helpful from that perspective. In the regular season. And i think herald is one of those guys to where he can help you for an eighty two game slate. Also a so. I think at least off the bat they'll have gaffer they'll have herro assuming there are no moves made there and then they kind of just have a situation where the three centres can you imagine if they play a three center rotation for the second year in a row. I know they just. They just did this with alex. Len robin lopez and daniel effort at the end of the season. And they all like they all did stuff. That'd be robin lopez. I'm just gonna say afraid. Cats robin lopez became a national sensation for his hook shot. Finally his hook shot which has been really good for a long time. Finally got the attack every broadcast. You gotta watch out for the robin. Oh there it is. it looks goofy. Buddy goes in every broadcast. Every local broadcasts saw the wizards. So maybe they'll do got. Why not yeah. I mean i eight. They're going to have to let that kind of stuff figure out. But i'll i'll tell you this much. This is not a problem. The wizards are used to having even when they were when they were good and getting four seeds five seeds maybe challenging to win playoff series seventeen. They win forty nine games and come game away from the eastern conference finals when they lost to the celtics and seven in the second round. Those those teams weren't particularly deep. Those teams want on their starting lineups with wall and bill and and market morrison and otto porter cortott like those teams won because of the strength is starting lineups and as soon as the reserves came in menu looked at the plus minuses. When when the too many first stringers off the floor at all those lineup breakdowns. And it was. Like the bench will get pulverized and i feel like this team has a potential for for having been able to get good minutes out of the bench. I think it's really plausible. I think they could probably mix and match good amount and they just kind of have a lot of guys. If someone's not able to go it's like okay. Cow kouzmines gonna play four more minutes in now. Now i guess bertone's is gonna play thirty five and air twenty five and maybe he can hit seven threes like they. They have options. You know. that's not something that's new. That's new for the wizards. Let's zoom way out because you mentioned 2017 when you know. They faced off against isaiah. Thomas who had an epic a couple of games in that series it went to seven and they lost I think the bill wall wizards are underrated because the wizards are just a punchline because ten leonsis once every year will say something regrettable and calling jordan crawford andrew blatch and who was the other member of the new big three wall. I guess right was that that was the new big three in a since deleted blog posts because their mascot is the wizards and they had to goofy logo with the stupid wizard hat and because they lose a lot. I like over decades. I think so. Let's put it in perspective from nineteen eighty to nineteen hundred hundred. You're not born in nineteen eighty two. Where you know. I wasn't i was.

"The way the nba free agency and weird stories in the news I will go this way guys just on the surface not saying you need to know every single move that's been made it's impossible Because right now following every move you'd need a sports ticker in your who i guess. Espn provides that but who's the winner so far in the first few okay. Let's combine draft and free agency who we sitting on the big winner so far. Got if you come mean come on in both is probably probably not much that moves the needle with a team of signing a bunch of free agency right in terms their draft You know the the heat or clearly going to be everybody various. Keep it to free agency. Forget the draft. Let's just go free agency and or sign and trade. Yeah it's gonna end up going to pick the miami heat with what they've done to retool their roster. I think it's an interesting play having a bunch of guys that they've kind abroad in duck and robinson right. Yeah keep him. They get kyle lowry they're gonna get. Pj tucker my missing one tyler. Are they bringing back. All the depot new who is apparently he's gonna stay unsigned until he can go out and prove that he's healthy people. Before anybody i wild about i was reading that iraq trade exit extend him before they traded him which is any turned it down and god he did. He turned it down wonderful. Regret that decision tyler. Any thoughts on a on. A i mean okay. Bigger waiter so far sons. getting chris. Paul back lakers to think about their rosters. Lakers signing russ trained for us. If i'm comparing the two it's still going to be the sun's bringing paul gray so you bring back the leadership number one. But i've been saying this yesterday or i've been saying this since they made the trade and it took another hit yesterday with caruso leaving for chicago. The lakers have benched up. Really good money. Yeah have no bench whatsoever. I think schroeder's also free agent. And they brought back schroeder's of free agent howard's about the sign. They've signed what four players in the last two day. I mean russ who else. Let's see russ russo. That's not good to white howard russ With the with the getting rust. They're dwight howard wanted to come back. This'll be the third time to whites. Been back caruso gone schreuder looking for money. I'm trying to think off the top of my head. Who else dinwiddie headed. Where which. I think by washington right. Yeah he's any solid player You look around like we said. We mentioned lowery. Are they going to do anything with in washington with brad. Beal doesn't sound like care. Him with deadly dinwiddie. I think he's very underrated player. solid pair him within what he see how that works out. Okay we're thinking golden state just added is it Otto porter jr. did i. I'm pretty sure did not puerto end up in golden state solid get. You're going to get klay thompson back. You've obviously staff and draymond that they're going to be better obviously saddened klay but i thought oh porter you might wanna check it but i swore unless i dreamt it or was thinking about it yesterday whereas otto porter fit but i think golden state signed otto porter We we all obviously mentioned dinwiddie. Looks like two point three now porter right okay. So he has a little depth to your team. It seems to me the lakers with all this move. And let's do something crazy. And i know adding dwight howard what dwight going to be about. What thirty seven now. Pushing big move. They got kent base more. There you go base more so so so. I don't think that there bench benches exactly the best basketball arrest. Six this season thirty six. The we know this that Did the sons are pretty pretty. Solid is going to end up. Back with the clippers Paul george is obviously there See look around and you know there was a part of me that thought we'll bradley. Beal would have been a good catch for somebody. Oh we're still waiting on the dame lillard stuff right. He's the biggest what what's going to happen. Guy correct maybe nothing. I think it's safe to assume for now that he's going to stay for at least one more year. What what. They're when. They're when they were the mentioning of the landing spot of possibly wouldn't wasn't there some talk about didn't i see is an article or one of these shows talking about lillard to a possible with the new york knicks. What would that mean right at dun appear that least today that something like that's gonna happen but he's a guy that everybody in bradley beal or two guys like. Oh what's going to happen. I don't think anybody questioned at least really really deeply chris. Paul was coming back and that leonard was going to end up. Staying a clipper. So i'm trying to think but the miami heat done a really good data can't shock you right. The guy running the organization always always seems to put them in positions an interesting collection of what they've put together. I don't. I'm not a big believer that it's gonna be better than third in the east and get to a finals. But it's a better team and they had do. The milwaukee bucks need to do anything now. Losing portis is keep him they lose pg talker. I mean louis. Pj tucker portis for what was nine million for two years right. Is that what we can't him with you. keep him. And that's a that's a solid. Keep because of what he did in the post season while. Pj tucker's really good You're getting any help on the offensive end. But he was really good energy guy and we'll do it with. Pj tucker does go scrap. He'll impact a game without scoring the average about two three points. A game in the in seven game series games. He went scoreless. I mean you get to and that's it but the other things that he brought to the table our stuff. We talked about at the beginning of the show. Saying you can do something like this. Well you're getting paid. You're going to get paid now. They're still gonna be a market for and or a the least phone calls about erik. Gordon reich is still got exist a little karanja probably after some of these free agent pieces all fall into push guys out there that may have an effect on you know teams are looking to get him. Because i'm looking at the list here of guys that are out there and there's you know there's the schreuder obviously he's very expensive He's still out there. Damore rosen's employers still out there. So maybe a rosen. Wanted to be a laker aiming to do that. You're going to take a minimum deal. Wanna go that. Would you know no me either. So he wanted a schreuder is going to be an interesting one points per game again. Last season like can score three to save his life. You know you gotta if you're averaging twenty points a game and he's a career twenty point one points per game his career and he still thirty one. I would be cashing in as much as possible. Get all the money. You can twenty one if that guy could cause he's really talented off. Eight hundred million dollars for a guy who who isn't going to hurt you very much beyond the arc right. If you're not josh. Say how many of my usc trojans are gonna waltz out of there and not be able to bury threes on a continuous basis. Yeah i know your boy herald minor boy he was. He was a nice three points. Shoot guy running really big three point. Shooter hailed minors. You guys remember him when he was coming out. Do you guys remember the compare jordan right baby jordan left handed in the lane about six four could jump out of the gym. They labeled and baby. Georgia do it all except one small.

"otto porter" Discussed on The Free Agents
"The guy hasn't played more than fifty six games in a season since twenty eighteen. Definitely less of a worry when you're on the veteran minimum that when you're making twenty million dollars a year but still the warriors don't have a ton of space on the margins so it'd be able to get a guy like otto porter could potentially be very nice for them as long as he's able to stay on the court okay. A little otto porter jr. love the hair from tk lee. What are you got favorite minor deal. You know a smaller deal. Yeah i can't cook getting threes and fifteen million early from the philadelphia. Seventy sixers I i think he's a great player. I think he deserves a lot more time on the court to. I think he can be a good shot maker hitting those threes around thirty eight percent last season since before at forty percent he actually. His numbers did take a little bit of a deep from the season before last season. But i think whenever he goes out there he always gets the sixers just that offensive punch that i need and i would like to get more time. I think doc rivers should get him out there earlier on more often than not having firing awake. Because i think he's important for them but so three fifty million. That's literally like an intern right really in the nba. So i think he's good. I think he's way better than that. Contract suggests so i think the sixers got a pretty nice deal out of that one all right. Well you know who. I thought was way better you. You said that. Lee there. But i can't korkmaz. I thought sam decker was a better shooter. Did a little sam. Dekker scouting here as you guys were talking. He's he's not in the whole he's not on on decker babies up to bat for the toronto raptors. But you'd think you'd be able to shoot better from three. And i don't think that's just a profiling that i'm doing. The white guy. Great three point shooter played two years over in europe. He's just gone. I mean there's probably best moment was fallen flat on working. Most notable moment was pretty great book. Rockets pick is daryl. Morey pick went to the to. The clippers is part of the the chris paul move and then kinda got lost in europe wisconsin guy and six eight huge knows. Can't wait can't wait to see him on the wraps see what he does there i was gonna say is a new jason component. But that's bad jason kubota a little bit. I like this. I think for me. I'm looking at the championship. Teams kind surprised. By what the lakers. Did i think the bucks done five and i look at the the nets that should be a top the eastern conference and i think they did pretty well too. But they're not done. I think they were able to get blake griffin back after he performed so so well for them. He was starting in the playoffs questions. Where it can he be a a grinder type player around stars after being a start himself for so long. And the answer is emphatically. He was so so good in the playoffs and they got him back on. Not sure what the deal is. That's one of the deals that hasn't been released probably one year for. I don't know seven eight or something like that but to retain him as we said it's tight money. I think they're ready to win a championship. Because as. I'm certain they're not done this. This rumor deal of spencer dinwiddie who was injured all year for them. Going to the wiz would probably be bring back parts for them like could be kyle kuzma to play some defense on the wing which is exactly what they need or they could be going to. The there could be a three way. Deal with the lakers. But either way. I think they're going to get some guards. Some wing help. I should say because they've got enough guards. They can trade spencer dinwiddie so to get blake back. I think they're on their way. And i believe in sean marks in his ability to to get a lot of those role players around there superstars one guy. They won't have back on that team. Jeff green. that's my favorite minor deal the day. And here's why a couple of reasons. This was one of the rare signings that was reported by not woche or shops malaysia andrews coming through the jeff green signing with the denver nuggets two years ten million dollars but my favorite part. Everybody's favorite part of this is assuming jeff green plays one game for the denver nuggets and you would hope that would be the case after signing a two year ten million dollar deal. It will be his eleventh different franchise. He has played for now. I saw some people saying twelve team. Which i guess is also technically true right because he played for the sonics in seattle then played for the thunder. That's where it gets a little confusing there. You going eleven one twelve anyway. It's a lot. do you know. Leelee little trivia question here on a fine tuesday morning record is twelve. Yeah for a guy. That's played twelve franchises. There's four different players. That have done it. Can you name them massenburg. Tony massenburg theaters player. Every team player. Chucky atkins wrong chucky chucky brown post-racial itchy smith..

See him as a guy who can just fit in Play a role. Yeah this is an important summer for this bull's team. And i think billy donovan mark averagely their gm and of course. Our tourist garnish abyss. Their president trying to figure out what what the right mix of players looks like. This was a team that was playing really fast last year. And then you trade for vucevic and it slows down a little bit. And i think ilson. He's a great. You can play a lot of offense threw him. they've gotta figure out and play making. Certainly you know a big part of that. I think you know this is a team that you're exactly right. The they've gotta figure out their identity they've got to get a playmaker to run it and the use of its trade sped up the pressure on this team to not just like you said not. Just be able to get in the plane but be like. They think they should have a team here. Now that is a is a perennial eastern conference Should be contender. There's still ways away from that and we forget things like this but another guy that went out in that trade was otto porter who the bulls and give up a ton fraud reporters jabari parker and bobby portis who now feels like a ton. Because he's fresh off the final stage and otto porter just didn't work out. He was part of their core. He was the the big three that they wanted in those things.

Like i missed it I woke up. I talked about it a little bit. And then i had a hard time back asleep. Well the headliner didn't get traded. And that's kyle lowry but let's start with the orlando magic. Because i can no longer make fun to them by calling them the orlando inertia because they traded everyone and they are going to be so bad when they next play which could be tonight. I don't even know else playing tonight that they are obviously positioning themselves. To go full rebuild. Bow and get a shot at kate cunningham. Whoever's next seat next year skate cunningham their biggest deal let's start with butchnevich to chicago for twenty twenty one. I at twenty twenty three. I and wendell carter junior and otto porter. What were your thoughts on that. Because i didn't think i was gonna get traded. And i thought if he did the price would be even higher than this and i was skeptical that anyone would offer them that kind of pressure i did. I didn't think a deal what happened. What do you think about this from either either perspective. I don't care which one to start with. Yeah i mean. I think for I thought it was going to be three ones. If you're going to get in the game for a reverse first rounder. Three first rounders. I thought that's what it was. And i guess if you're landau i guess you're quite that the wendel carter junior the pickup equates to a first round although he's got two years you know he's going into an extension year so it's not like you get clean slate with him.

"Um, of lucid bitches On that way. Julius Randle, the does a number of those guys there are on their way to being a superstar. He's not a superstar yet, but I know that he is an emerging star. So cap I can roll with you on the money with Zach Levine. That's fine. I just need to know what else the Bulls are going to do. If you're going to say that the vine that Glavine is a centerpiece, then what? What's after that is that Kobe is that is that marketing? Is that your big three? Because if that's the case, you don't. That means you don't have any superstars. None of the first of all, I'm not a huge Kobe white guy at this point. Right now, What is Kobe White 20 years old? Kid? Yep. 20. Look he has. Kobe was the best player in his high school team. He's one of the best players on his college team. There's a reason he went seven because he could score. I need a point guard someone who can take some of the burden of getting guys where they need to be in the right spots running the offense properly. And making some shots, but They never really tried to build around, Jimmy. They brought in, um Dwayne Wade. And who is the Rondo? They brought in weight. And Rondo. How old is he? Jeff? Kobe White is 20 years old. He'll be 21 in exactly two weeks. February 16. Okay, so he's a baby in his development, and he's got a professional coach. In his second year here, so I'm willing to give him a little time because they're not winning a title anyway, this year. That's the amazing thing. I go on social media, and if they lose their move that sumo bulls and lose again No, no fair. Let this thing develop. You just got like A Michelin starred chef who's Your coach? Is you like to call it from the top shelf? Yes, we played like a month and a half, two months. Let him please go out there. And do his work. Otto Porter's 28 million comes off the books. He'll be gone. They have an option on Fatties Young. Why trade him? I know you may get Good asset unless I'm getting a really unbelievable deal. Like what he brings to my team. He's a pro's pro. So I I think they're gonna have 52 million potentially and cap space. I would use some of it Log Zach up this summer. I would. I think I think that's fair. I think that's fair. I just I just need to know what else the bull's gonna do here for the future that issue and by the way, I wouldn't make any moves as we get when we get close to the deadline out the whole season's about evaluation. Bulls fans know if I really thought that this team wasn't going anywhere, I'd be pulling the trigger on them every single day on the show, But I'm not doing that. Because because this Billy Donovan, for God's sakes, Is Billy Donovan. I mean, here's a guy here now. Hey, he's taking the toughest job he's ever had the MBA, trying to mold him develop and shape this team into a contender. This is not easy. It will not be easy with this team, because, remember, they had Boylan before this, So now it's almost trying to retrain, rework re coach a lot of these guys to get them. In a position where they can win and learn how to win. When it comes to Kobe White, though I have to ride with them cap because there's no other point guard on the roster. Not currently that I could that I could trust. Let me look at the roster. Archie Archie Deok, You know that's all you have. That is actually point guards and Devin Dotson. He went to Kansas. So we have to give him a pass it all the way Now he was a fuse off. He was a fine starter for the 83 socks. But I don't want them on Richard. That's it. All right, Bigger part. Kevin, invoking a real quick What's up, Kevin? How's it going? Um, I just wanted to say That Do you think we should be exact cuisine? I was comparing him to Brandon Ingram. You put their numbers together. It's basically almost the same. Brandon might have more rebounds and, but they're both very young of rising players. And like he said about diving Mitchell, you know, um if we paid Zach that and maybe Levin to like a three year round like $60,000,050 million, he's not taking, you know, three year extension on top of another year, he's not taking Yes. Then a max type dealing. Appreciate the call Kevin, if you go to him ago. Yeah, we'll give you whatever he's looking to get paid, and I understand it. Hey, If the Bulls don't pay him, someone will people people could use his last team that could use that type production capsule. If it's not gonna be bulls, someone will and by the way, I like Brandon Ingram as well. Die unknown being coached by sand. Van Gundy is the problem that you got it cap. You got Zion Williams and Brandon Ingram and Steven Adams on the floor at the same time, it gets a little cumbersome in the lane. Little cumbersome. You mean Zion's of five right in this league?

The Wizards are too slow to pick up their pace in loss to Mavericks
"Doesn't look like the wizards are going to win a championship this year. The wizards aren't just like bad start. Then look like a bad team, especially last night going up against the Mavericks who aren't exactly the class of the Western Conference. It didn't look good. They've got to wait Howard back. All the all though, he is a little bit hampered. But here's the things rose. They've kind of feels like this team has to make a move like it does feel like it, and the can't really trade John wall until July first because of the fifteen percent trade kicker Zach Lowe, explain for us in an article today are they gonna move Bill. Are they gonna move wall? And eat the fifteen percent like what you see the future of this season for the wizards will be this is a unique dynamic because the Washington Wizards having all. All star back core in in wall and Beal, but the chess moves that they bet on was Otto porter. They gave him a hundred million dollar contract. Solidified a wing position when that player does it become somebody that performs at an off star level. And now hampers you salary wise you bring into white Howard to help at the hoop be a finisher give you some rebounded. Give you some toughness. You have one of the Morris twins who provides that as well, but cohesive unit for some strange reason, they're not able to get on the same page as it relates to communicating defensively sacrificing for one another offensively, and it has shown me that the parks don't fit. I love the progression of Kelly Oubre. I like him as a young player. They have so many guys that just haven't been game changers for what you hope they do. And it's not only about talent. It's about cohesion.
