Shannon Sharp: Kawhi Leonard Will Not Win a Championship for Clippers
"We have some big clippers news and even though there's no timetable set for his return we now know will be sticking around in la. Yesterday quiet agreed with the clippers to a four year deal. They player option. That is worth over. One hundred seventy six million according to ward so shannon will. He lead the clippers to championship. During this contrast this up look at it like this. Break it down like this. We do know that there's a likelihood that he's gonna miss some of the season this year. You're going to be some or is it going to be all. He missed fifteen games with thirty. Gave me say you know what guys. I'm gonna make sure totally healthy because this is what we know about learning history. He does not play hurt. So i'm gonna say this year. I'm gonna wash it up. He played on even though. I think there's a fifty fifty chance. He does play but he missed some games. You better hope. He doesn't play this year art. I wanted to play. I wouldn't i wouldn't play. It doesn't matter to me He we don't worry about we. Don't worry about the other squad but anyway so that's one year so he has two years left. Because the fourth option basically skip. That's an insurance policy. In case the need do give out on it. Because we know his history. He's had some issues over the last several years. That's called the time. I was gonna say they don't scale because i don't believe the nets. I don't believe we are walking out. Don't believe the lakers. I don't believe some of these other teams have some of the issues that they have now. When you signed when you have two guys on deals paul george and aqua leonard it becomes very difficult for you to fill out your roster with significant players basically. You're getting guys who mid level exceptions you guys taking the vet minimum.

"Video. I didn't see it while it's weird and wonderful confuses me too. What a knife for trae turner trae. Turner turned twenty eight yesterday. Had any celebrate with his record tying third career scifo. I just went out for drinks when i turned twenty. Eight amazing night for trae did make your list wild. What else you got morals day in baseball. Everyone knows what bobby baena day do. The weirdest contract and all professional sports today is the day. That bobby baena gets one way. One nine million dollars. Direct deposit into was bankamerica account. He looks up and says today's the day on like we're going out to dinner. He gets this amount of money till twenty five. So congratulations by bennie. It's always a great day around the baena household that the weird wonderful from the now throwback all right. Let's get back to the clippers from last night. The off season officially upon them after getting bounce. Last night paul. George knows how it could have been avoided first things first on a thursday morning. I see beverley beck. Here clipper sons and for the clippers. It's been one heck of a ride came back from down to to. The mavs came back from down to the jazz. Almost came back from down to phoenix last night. Didn't quite make it. Paul george to carry the team. Once go i went down was asked what could have been if the claw didn't get hurt. Take a listen issues different. Talk about best players. You know issues away from you to the next round. So justly it's it's what if this tremendous we just. We didn't do enough doing twin. Threes go hall antoine walker joining us now one good morning. Is paul george right that the clippers would have made the finals. If i didn't get hurt this is the problem. That people have with paul george and everybody. Has you know question a question. Mark and his name is because of comments like this instead of saying at complement. His teammates on the run today made over the last right seven against i was put together. A great series gets failings when they came back to. Oh two and the first two rounds and paul. George was i mean. Come on let it was. So it's no guarantee that she was going to beat the phoenix suns and the phoenix. Says the first two games without chris. Paul so as no excuse for you to to lose the series. And that's what everybody looks at at. Paul george is not necessarily a suiciders ease is always the all star. But he's not a superstar because you feel like you'll make it an excuse when he could have got it done You think about game to emits two free does he makes free throws you may be looking at a different series. I'll see you know and gain five. You know he played terrific and we wanna command confident. Give flowers for but it was multiple times to see where this series could've went the other way without kawhi anthrax of course probably could've went kimberly with nikolai. That's obviously you talking about the top five guy and koalas plan great basketball on the playoffs. But edry's off by the game. I think his son injuries that we look at that. You'd be like while you can kind of blame. The last for sometimes the hamstrings and and those type of things we kind of blaming guys not being safe but that's a legitimate injuries. That happen throughout play out. What got could mess his the nose. Day is not going but this is the reason why people question paul george. He doesn't stand up and make yourself seem accountable for these type of moments like this. They were good enough to win this series without while leonard. Now let they win the finals. That's another day. But they could win the sues without and so i don't necessarily agree with him added. He got the series done because they started out series. You know oh to wick wind lineup. So it remains to be seen. So i think that once you got to give the sons their flowers and understand that you know you. You beat a team that was better than you and they got it done right to an ron's point. They were download to in the first round with kawhi down to the second round with quiet. In the third round. Without quite they were download to even though phoenix. Didn't have chris paul. Now are the clippers. Have better team with quiet. Leonard obviously could that change this series obviously but rinse repeat that commentary for nearly any team in the playoffs so this year there are a lot of what if surrounding injuries in these playoffs and antoine nailed it. Which is. I'm not here to bang on paul george. Because he was great in game five and he has carried this team post kawais injury but he wasn't very good in the game last night and he wasn't very good after the game last night and the fact of the matter is even without kawhi leonard. The clippers had every opportunity to win. Game two and paul. George miss those free throws and i know we look at the value. As a great play by phoenix. It's also a massive defensive. Gaffe by the clippers. You got less than a second left boogie cousins in the game book. Boogie cousins is shading the wrong side. He's just giving. He's only there to prevent the lob and he's angled the wrong way and then enganed four. You had twelve field goal attempts in the fourth quarter to tie or take the lead and you went over twelve. Hey you lost to the scored eighty four points in the game. No team all year regular season or postseason lost a game where their opponent scored eighty four or fewer except for that game so you had plenty of opportunities. but wilde's. I actually think the clippers should look to if they're trying to say what happened and they should feel mostly good about how this playoff run went. Compared to last year they should. We looked at these deficits as like a badge of honor because they overcame them. But there's a cost to everything and because you were down to the mavs coli only as so many bullets in the chamber because he does have something wrong with his lower body physically. He used a lot of them in that epic game six against luca and a few more in game seven and then in that series i mean guavas playing forty plus minutes in six of the seven games. That's not what he does it. Certainly not what. He doesn't around one. So it's not shocking. That the injury bug bidermann round to his history is he has to be really well managed. So yes they would have been better without with qui- but they also might have had. Why if they had played better earlier when he was still there. If that makes sense and it could won the series john. Paul george makes a few more plays in games two and four. That's totally fair. And you were early on this or you were like. I.

"Who during the course of play have been giving you a hard time as they showed the opposing. The hawks fans handled this injury perfectly. I thought they gave jaanus and the moment the respect it deserved you contrast it with the really ugly ninety seconds after durant injury in toronto. Where fans like seemed like impulsively cheer. They even had to be quieted down. By kyle lowry like what are you guys doing. I i thought atlanta fans made the whole league. Look good by saying okay. we're competing. We're ruining our team. But in this moment let's all shut up and kind of you know. Hold our collective breath. I thought that was one of the few bright spots in a really tough moment last night. No i'm glad that you brought that out because that was a big story a couple of weeks ago especially when trae young was in that series competing against the knicks fan so that back and forth. We saw some disgusting things. And we're like you know. How do you have this discussion where you have these fans you. You don't wanna put fans in a box. Because that's what makes our our game great also to fans pay the bill but at the same time there are boundaries and airlines that you just can't cross and sometimes you just go too far so you you are one hundred percent right. This is how you do it. You have yours out there. Free throw line near county one to get into ten and eleven to thirteen seconds and they're making and then he goes down so your other end of the spectrum in your hands and right so great job there. I do want to say this really quickly before we before we go the hyperextension that knee injury while she talked about yawn is coming back out. Was he coming back to play. Was he just coming out to just give this team a little bit of unfit little energy like okay. it's okay. I will be fine but i had that in my last year. Playing for the jets. Two thousand sixteen opening night. It was like sunday night. Football planning up in buffalo and stefan gilmore takes out my knee boom hyperextension. And so i came back out into finishing the game with a hundred a hundred yards. And maybe one touchdown seven catches or something like that. But i wasn't right until we. So i should have been out for about six or seven weeks but i wasn't right until we tend. I will. I went through that first. Half of the season where. I play the games and i would be recovering in rehabbing through the entire week so this is a interesting injury and some guys come back right away. Some guys it takes two months. And while i was with you got excited when i saw him come back and then once the game was blown out he obviously went into the locker room. I was like well so much of that all right. So the hawks get the win. This series now shifts back to milwaukee for game five tomorrow.

It's going to say hey brandon. Berkeley's criticism call georgia's blank Kinda right look. We had this conversation yesterday on our show. was a good conversation Here's the deal. Everybody gets criticized. This comes with the position. Koran butler was on some podcast not his podcast but another podcast and he was talking about look when they're cheering for you. They're not cheering for you. They're caring for the position because when you're not there the fans are still going to be cheering. So it's the same thing. This is universal. If you make it to this level you're going to get criticized when you play good or if you you know i mean play bad or if you're not living up to standard but on the other end of this things have changed and this is why kind kinda is because the social media era.

"paul george" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"Any defense the way he can because he's such an elite athlete. Then were getting the best of paul george and by the way. Let's not be giving him out because he's played the most minutes of anybody in the playoffs. If fatigue is somehow the reason that we get these up and down performances. His first quarter was as bad quarter. His third quarter was his best quarter. If i'm going to have an issue with fatigue. I would think it would happen in the second half rather than at the beginning of the game. Scottie pippen's got a book out. I don't think he would have written it without the documentary by michael jordan. It feels like a lot of grievances. It feels like cable political television where it's just grievance grievance grievance whereas i think jordan's documentary was celebrating. What was great and rocky and tough about the dynasty. There's claims now from scotty that the final shot coach did it was racial with phil jackson. What's your reaction to that. Is the book called axe to grind. Was that the title of the it should have been. That's scotty is the idea. That phil jackson's decision to have a toni. Kukoc take the last shot in a game. I mean at the time nobody looked at it. Well that's a curious decision. Why dissing scotty like that was like yeah. I could see why he would do that. Because tony is the better knockdown shooter in the last situation like that. So and by the way did he not. Yeah he made the shot. so what are we. What are we talking about. Why are we read shooting this at this point. Here's here's the one thing i will tell you. Is that at that time and with scotties era of of nba players. The belief was that the rise of european players was the nba's way of maintaining a certain percentage of white players in the league. The us american born white players weren't making it very very minimal number and the belief was among players in the nba. At the time. Was that the reason. The euros were gaining popularity and traction was because it allowed the league to maintain a certain number of white players in it. So i don't know if that thought that whether you believe it or not. That theory is informed. Some of what scotty was saying. But i mean let's face it whether he's saying that phil was racist toward kobe or dotty. There was never any indication now. Phil could be selfish. Fill could be like i want to do. What's best for me. But i always got the sense that fills decisions were based on. How do i. How do i win how to maintain my championships and nothing beyond that. I've just there was never a glimmer and all the time that i covered phil jackson. It was in l. A. or chicago that i ever got the sense that there was ever a decision made based on race ric. Bucher gotta run good senior bud fox sports. Nba thank you rick. Do appreciate it by the way spotlight comfort. Tankless made simple dot com navien. Tankless water heaters..
"paul george" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"Benz the best or nothing. Let's have him join us. Live thoughts on last night. So let's start with rick. Do you view the series differently as the old dudes beat up on the young kids last night. Do you view it this morning differently than you did before that game no. I always thought that was going to be the story between these two teams. Obviously there's one old guy on the other side of the equation. If i look at at last night though i think really what it came down from me. Down to for me is looking at the sons. Two best players in devon booker and chris paul and devon booker game not having matured enough and chris. Paul's having matured much. He's playing the old guy. I've got a fu the referee on living off of guile game. And he's not getting it done that way. And meanwhile devon booker as not ever had the experience of running a team particularly at this level. He's done it and with mixed success during the regular season. So if you don't have either one of those guys operating at optimum value inability then that's going to take away your third best player de'andre eight and who really lives off of what those two guys do. So i the clippers are the older more experienced team. The hedge on that is they don't always play like the older more experienced team when they do get results like last night when you when they don't that you get results like you did in game four. Yeah it's Paul george is one of the great half of all time. I said this earlier. One of the reasons kyrie. Ad colli leonard. I don't always know emotionally what i get in big games. I don't know physically what i get it. We always talk about. Ad is the world's best to is it possible that paul george is sound weird. He's a one but but he's a lower one. You know what i mean like. I would say yeah. He's a hologram. He can be a one he can be a two. But you never know which one you're gonna get the reality. Everybody wants to get to this place. Where we're comfortable with paul george to your point we wanna say. This is what paul george is folks. I have an announcement for ya. We're all on this boat. It's going to be rocky until paul. George stops playing. We're never getting to land okay. We're always going to be on the boat and it's always gonna be pitching one way or another. You are going to get games where he looks like a one where he's amazing and then you're gonna get quarters where he's gonna look amazing. The third quarter he was on first quarter. He was a disaster. I mean it was fortunate that all the other clippers had it going. The clippers are at their best. And paul george is at his best when he defends when he rebounds and he sees himself as part of this collective offensively when he's aggressive but he's not trying to do too much offensively his game is a real feel flow game so it's going to look good at times and then times it's not game four. There was no flow to that game. Paul george no flow to his offensive game. Game five clippers. Find some flow. The ball's moving everybody's got it goin'. Paul george joins the party and got it going. I think that's the distinction is that we want to put paul george in that category as a fire starter. And he's and he's really not he has the talent to be but as decision making ultimately does not allow him to be that so if you can minimize that decisions that he has to make. He's just decisive. I mean they're going to go. Or i'm gonna move it offensively..

"This is your team. Go make plays all of a sudden. You just see the way. Paul george is carrying himself. It's not something like it's rushed. He didn't force one play. One shot the game came easy to him in the second half and this is a team that has had its back to the wall so many times in this postseason and responded down to nothing in each of their previous series and this one down three one now they have life going home and we'll see what happens from there so we talked a lot about that game off the top of the hour. Let's look ahead to tonight. Game four critical in atlanta box in the hawks. I'm going to give you some over undersea on what you might expect from some of the stars and let's start with trae young twenty eight and a half points as the over under four trae young coming off the ankle. What do you expect. And what does he need to give them set for atlanta to have a chance to win. He's got to give them over. Twenty eight but i don't think he gets. You gotta change speeds and change direction when you have an ankle injury your ability to start. Stop trade joan. Young's game is built on starting and stopping changing speeds changing direction. It's going to be hard to do that. Even take some medication. so. I think it's an under i won't even points. But he's also got to get those assists. I don't think he'd get some with a terrible shame at that. Winds up playing a huge role. How chris middleton twenty three and a half. I think he's gonna be over on that. If the chris when you have a game like he had the other night he's going to start to see a big basket. They're not just going to play at the end of the game. I think middleton matchup problem especially when they go to that small lawn at small johnson. Five middleton gets more opportunities. he goes over as he. The batman janas the batman will see thirty two and a half back man. This guy is the batman for development. But this dude is he gets you thirty. Plus every single night eleven rebounds and he does stuff you cannot prepare for. You can have a scouting report. All you want. Yeah does he need driving lanes but you know what this guy rebounds it. He defends it finishes at the rim. And he's not settling. You can say this guy's batman. I don't know what it.

I'll give him a dozen off yesterday's performance for this reason it was intellectual genius match with physical j. You knew kevin durant knew exactly what it would take and when it would take it and how much he had to give because to your point if he gives it in the first half and they go into the locker room trailing by nine instead of trailing by sixteen sure it looks better if feels better but does he still have enough in the fourth. Cutting rant knew just how far ahead he let the bucks. Go and still be able to reel them in and win at the finish. Yeah they say that.

"Hey We will we will facilitate a sign and trade for eric bledsoe. Because i don't think that the pelicans have any interest in keeping eric bledsoe around. It's an expensive contract wasn't great fit. He had a terrible year for them. i think theoretically blood so it'd be a good fit for the words are looking for. But only if he doesn't suck the way he sucked last year and That's not a guarantee he's of gotten worse every single season as he's gotten older so i think of the warriors wanted to try to facilitate training get bledsoe back. They probably could. I don't know that the warriors are all that interested in. Eric bledsoe using about other names. Like would minnesota be interested in kelly oubre way. Let's just keep trading with minnesota. Every year like would be interested in kelly oubre ricky rubio. You know maybe. That's something with it with anthony edwards and danville russell. There is your back court. If you don't have room for rubio the way that you thought after the warriors have a need for playmaking like a stated need for playmaking kelly oubre ruling on the fact that you were hoping he would be. Maybe that's something that they could explore But that's probably the best that they can do real Probably realistically if they are able to execute science trade which is not as easy as everybody keeps making it sound like in your twitter comments in mind He's unrestricted free agent. It's ultimately up to kelly oubre and good luck trying to read what kelly oubre so it's not that easy but if it were to happen i think best case scenario was he goes to a team that wants to maintain some cap space or doesn't have the cap space is interested in a guy like kelly oubre And the warriors just create a trade exception that they can use down the line. I agree with you I think i think a trade exception would be a win for this team. I mean we saw in getting turning water into wine in terms of A really crappy situation with with klay going down for the season. They're able to parlay that trade exception into you. Know someone like uber that was that was somewhat of a coup and so getting another trade exception can can just give the warriors more flexibility and at the end of the day. That's bob myers. Number one job is to give stockpile assets. Give them options. Give them flexibility so that they can be opportunistic when opportunities arise The next question you you briefly touched upon this earlier but this is from at dilkusha ramana. What if pg three aka paul. George was available. This offseason is it a good idea to go after him. If yes who are the players the warriors will give up now. I know you talked about this. With i believe bram hill's men on your podcast Bram from worse huddle was on his podcast A week ago and he floated the paul george possibility and at that time. It was the first time i heard. This is a possibility. And at the time i at a hard time kind of figuring out what my opinions were on it It's a good. I think of the big names that have been floated out. There is out there to me. It's the most realistic. The is the one that makes the most sense for both teams If you're looking at the potential package the words of put together to try to get him..

"If you're a winning team or team at least with a winning reputation like the warriors have An and there's a clear opportunity for kelly olynyk to play I think you could get him at that I and it's funny that you meant. What are the sexy names and the first thing you said. Is kelly olynyk. I don't when you say sexy. I don the first person i think of is not kelanic. Wasn't that's that's that's exactly it right. I will try. I will try to give people something that they want. And one name. I would be monitoring as marcus saul. Who the warriors were in the running for last offseason. He ultimately obviously decided to sign up. The lakers has not been happy with his role in in los angeles. I know he's under contract for next year. But it's for a modest like two and a half million dollars or something like that. The warriors could work out a trade. If marcus says hey get me out of here i wanna go to golden state. That was the other team. I wanted to play for Markelle salt lake. It's not impossible for the warriors to acquire him via trade. So maybe that's an in that they could look for and what kind of solve the things that looking for right all the reasons we talked about mark great for last year. He can't space the floor. He is a playmaker at the center position. Defensively at he isn't what he wants was not even close. He's actually kind of negative at that end at some time sometimes. Now probably can't even play for you every night but could be a useful player off the bench. Yeah and feels like that needs to happen just because every single summer feels like that. I've been on the beat. The we've talked about marcus saw as a potential possibility And i know the warriors like him a lot. I know drones a big fan You know but if it was between him and olympic. I would go atlantic right now. Your better player right now. Well of more my conversation with less gobert right after the break this episode is brought to you by the nba witness mind-bending competition on the biggest stage between the best players in the world. A place where legends are made. It's impossible jumps. That seemed to freeze in mid air and spectaculars. Feels that you didn't see coming. It's that one play that lasts seconds that you will talk about for the rest of your life and let's face it. It's the unpredictability of at all. Never knowing when the next big moment will happen. Huge wins and crushed dreams. It's the drama of it all. You just can't make this stuff up that's the nba. that's game the nba playoffs are happening. Right now don't miss all the action..

"Paul george strait's west. Thank you so much for joining we back on the podcast We're we're here in full on offseason mode. I think a little bit earlier than we both anticipated. I think we both assumed we'd still be covering a playoff series right now. Probably utah maybe a four-game loss. Maybe a five game. I i know the way the grizzlies have put up a fight. A lot of people think the warriors would've made that interesting. I'm still not convinced but Here we are. It's it's june first and we've already been an offseason mode Week now How's how's the offseason treating you. Man are you. Are you getting a little rest are you. Are you get a breather Sort of i took all of last week off which was nice As soon as those exit interviews were done with bob. Myers and steve kerr. This is the first working since then But i did use that opportunity to exhaust myself physically with a fun little kayaking trip. So I feel like. I need a vacation. After that i turned thirty in april and i didn't realize that my body would do this so i just. I haven't worked in almost a week but that kayaking driven i'm done. I don't feel like i can work again this week. So you're lucky you got me. Today is sometimes sometimes like the the fun trips and stuff are more exhausting than just like working. I mean i. I had a pretty packed memorial day. We can too. And i'm exhausted. And now i have a pretty full work week and i'm like oh yeah i gotta do that too but No one wants to hear complaining. I put out the call on for wars mailbag questions. And i just so. Our readers and listeners are aware i will not be doing a weekly whereas mailbag analyses. And like i did Throughout the season. But i will have occasional podcast that they get into Bad questions and a lot of these questions were asking for specific names that the warriors go after You know targets Which is are all completely understandable questions and questions that i think really play to your strengths..
