"These people so you are man. In tokyo we talked to you last when you were marveling at the robots sinking half court shots at the men's basketball games. Were going to get to men's basketball on a sack. We'll get to russell. Westbrook ben simmons because my soul still has not recovered from that saga with the sixers. But you're on the precipice of week two of the olympics and the last time we talked to you you were extraordinarily disoriented and you had a giant jar of peanut butter. So what's the mood in tokyo. These days the japanese are doing great and he's olympics ryan windhorst a week into covering the olympics from tokyo. They've won more gold medals than they ever had seen olympics. There are still protests happening but From watching the reaction of the japanese success and talking to my friends who are consuming japanese media the games have come a long way in the eyes of the japanese. and so. that's kind of ben this This whole this whole experience. You make the best of your situation. And the japanese have made the best of it and and are thriving are yes so i know you're you're still in quarantine right but you're getting out to see events and stuff. What did you see today. Yeah i went to the men's golf today and For the first time since the gulf became a sport again The us wanted the andrew. Shaw flea who is number five ranked player in the world. Outduel tedeschi matsuyama the favorite to win and the masters champion and they were actually in the final round together at augusta the masters and when mets yama one and on that day Softly cut a joke. He was in choke position. Today i was walking out. There was ninety degrees hundred. Four heat index all sweating a no fans but a lot of the volunteers for their cheering. Matsuyama on and he could have very easily blown this but he made a couple of great saves and that was great to document so speaking of the united states avoiding choking and holding on for dear life to take home a gold medal. I do wanna talk about men's basketball. Because the last time i watched them was on saturday. They play the czech republic. They blew him out. One nineteen eighty-four. That's too blowouts in a row brian. After they lost to france they had just blown out iran before that so the temperature check on team. Usa is telling you what in the second half of that game They looked as good as i've ever seen them look in person. They were spectacular. And the first half they were up by four on the checks. So i'm a little sensitive to announce that arrived. Look out. there's no stopping him now but they definitely bared their fangs and kevin durant for the first time this summer even dating back to the exhibition games looked like the. Mvp that he is drew holiday has picked up exactly where he left off coming out of the finals and he's just swarming defensively and he had three steals in that game but it felt like about six because he disrupted so many things and gregg. Popovich is made a Starting lineup adjustment. Taking jason tatum. Who really expected to be one of the best. Few players on this roster. He took them out of the starting lineup and led him to be the lead guy off bench and it really worked out. Well he at twenty seven points. He had a breakout performance. So the ball was moving. They were defending their working together. They had a nice rhythm and flow the roles look like they fell into place if they continue to play the way they did in the second half against the checks. They're going to win the gold medal. I just don't know if they're going to be able to continue that so. I know tatum off. The bench is a super meaningful. Adjustment brian absolutely. But i'm also curious about all of this uncertainty. How kevin durant is fitting into this hierarchy because he is the obvious guy to be the face of this olympic team. He's the best player. he passed. Carmelo anthony this weekend to become team. Usa's all time leading scorer. But is he the unquestioned leader of this team at this point. Well he's the captain when they're all playing well he's the best player and he showed that in in the win over the czech republic. Because not only did he have twenty three points but he had eight rebounds and six assists. I mean he was basically playing like lebron james out there as a point forward and defending big men defending small men and and hitting a bunch of shots Draymond green is playing a very important role. What is that role. How would you describe that because dre bond as an nba player at. This point is not as useful as he used to be. Well of course he's probably trying to recruit for the golden state warriors. Everybody there i guess except for durant. He already recruited him. But when you talk to the players as they discuss about how draymond will come up to them and say. Hey you know you need to do this. In fact one of the key moments. I really think so. Far in this olympics is after. The americans lost a france and that it was a game that they were ostensibly offensively and damian lillard was Passing up shots which is not who he is. No green pulled damian aside and you know damian. Lillard is one of the leaders of this team. Not any heat on kelvin. Johnson isn't pulling him aside. Zach levine is not pulling him aside draymond green pulled him aside and said listen. You are damian lillard. You do not pass up open shots in the fourth quarters of games and dame described. How dre montana pulled him back in to worry needed to be hit seven three pointers in the next game. Draymond is said that they run some of the same stuff that he would run with steph curry and make mega comfortable and the other thing about it is is at the start of this. We were really watching bradley. Beal and draymond green because bradley beal was a guy who we thought might be available in the warriors to trade for him and and maybe had bradley unfortunately not left with cova. That draymond will be working on that but He is absolutely totally bonded with dame lillard. Let's just say that there's no question there about those friendship and ability to work together. Okay so let's get back to the field here because ahead of the us which is advanced now officially to the quarterfinals. Single elimination time brian. Doer died time. They get spain tomorrow. Tuesday for those who are not familiar with what. Spain is alabel in international play. Who are they. What is in front of the americans here. Well the spanish of been probably the most successful international team outside of the americans for the last twenty years. They've won the world cup twice including the one that they just hadn't thousand nineteen in the classic game that the redeem team won the gold medal game in beijing in two thousand eight it was. Spain was playing high level basketball. They are an older team. Both saul brothers play and get real midst of. There's a bunch of Former nba players. That you may recognize who are still out there. I barely recognised ricky rubio. How would you describe the way that ricky rubio was looking these days because it's kind of majestic he's in still in the nba. Pablo just got traded in a couple of days but he is got the full. Jesus look i guess you could say four four flowing hair messianic yes And here's the thing when he like many players that you hear about on opposing teams. He takes on a messianic quality when he plays for spain he is he was the mvp of the two thousand nineteen world cup and he puts up big numbers there an older team and experienced team. The americans did play them. Two weeks ago in las vegas and won by seven and that was a good win for them at the time they are much better team the americans are sense then so they will come in its favorites and quite frankly if the americans play their game they should win the spanish or maybe a little bit past their prime but.
