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.
"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..

"paul george" Discussed on First Things First
"Speaking to paul. George is it just me or does it feel like every postgame interview is a referendum on. His mental state is feeling confident. Easy being hesitant whereas the at you know so. It's just strange that way. But look the paul george to give you thirty one points. Six of ten shooting from three. Are we giving that. Paul george. The rest of the series. No but we can get a paul george hoop and we will. I believe paul george who can play well enough for the clippers to win this series. Paul george is going to give you twenty plus points every night. He's done it every single game in this postseason. That's ten games now. Might begin efficient. It might not be the best game. But he's going to get his twenty plus points and if so why is truly unlocked as he was in game three. And if that's the cool why we're going to see for the rest of the series and just one one role player per game steps up and breaks out. It was with seventeen points in game. Three reggie jackson is dropped twenty piece here in their twenty nine. I think in. Game two marcus. Morris with seven threes. Was it in game. Seven six or seven threes in game seven against dallas. If they can just get one role player to step out of himself and play an exceptional game plus at the top of his game. Paul georgia's twenty plus. We'll be fine of the four games remaining. I'm saying seven. I think george have one more excellent game as he did in game three and he was very good in game. Two as well I think have two very good games or too good to very good games and one more mediocre game. So i rather lie zeke and play well enough as the second guy to kawai for them to win. This series chris. We talked about this friday. And what i asked for was an easy thirty and he gave us that thirty. I i don't think. I don't think they they win and they advance. If you don't get paul george playing this way. I hear you on that but just an okay or an average or good paul. George doesn't get the job done against the number one. See the utah jazz now. People continue to disrespect this team. But they're good right. And we're talking about donovan mitchell all last week like it's time to put him in the same. Conversation is lebron and steph curry and k. d. etcetera etcetera. So if that's the case then you need paul george to play the way he played and i just don't see that happening. In one of the reasons why you keep hearing them talk about his mindset and that goes back to the bubble where he reveals like. Look i start talking to a therapist. I'm dealing with some depression and a lot of that has to do with confidence as a player as a player. Anybody for that matter when you lose confidence you are done. You're cook so think about what he was just saying in his press conference after you know after he when he was interviewed up the game. I just kept telling myself to shoot shoot. Shoot your player any sport and you're out there thinking about the results if you're thinking about. Wow this brand. Marshall going to say playoff p is stephen. A smith gonna say this chris russo. Like that's you're done so for him to go out there saying i don't care about what they're saying and i'm just going to shoot. I don't care about the results and says a lot to where he's at now. Can he maintain that is the question if he can maintain that mentality then they may be able to come out this series. Listen i'll give paul george credit. We sat on. Friday is burn alluded to there had been fifty eight thirty point games. These playoffs by twenty one different guys. Paul george was not part of that group. And now he is and this is to me. Wild a typical clippers playoff win in this regard. And i know this is going to sound redundant but when the clippers look great they look great and that's what it was on friday now it was like oh my god. Look at the look at them or for saturday night. Whichever night it was. I get my weekends run together too much tequila. Whatever night was like how does how does this team get. Be looking all. Reggie jackson is a flame thrower from three. They have all these options. They didn't even have to use playoff rondeau. Who by the way has been playoff. Rondo this series and this playoffs. And he's got to be coaches decisions last couple of games. But there is when things are gonna sound odd. Nick you're hitting on the clippers. But i'm meaning i think i would have a little more confidence in them if this was a tie. Game with five minutes left and they want it rather than running away from the jazz because there is still some of the same concerns. I have about their execution late in games. We didn't get to see this game because they were they were so far ahead. And at some point the clippers do have to address this you. Bruce minton games. These playoffs ten games of these playoffs and nine of those ten. The other teams best player has just let them on fire like they look six times. Donovan had a quiet thirty in a game that he didn't play of the third fourth quarter. Pardon me like wild. That is a concern that they don't except for the one. Why game where. He matched up on luke. I think it was game. Six they ever really shown the ability to stop the opposing teams. Best guy and the jazz have so many good shooting options. They you're gonna have to score. A bunch of reggie jackson doesn't continue to shoot sixty three percent from three. Which is what. He's shooting this series. The clippers remain in trouble. Even if paul george does give you a couple more thirty point games see broussard. What do you think about co. why sort of modulating his effort. Because he was on donovan for a little while and he shut of endowed. And you gotta steal got a dog and you could see donovan frustrate now. Donovan had like this tweaking. His ankle a little bit so he was sort of. I don't think he was full strained. Either there was felt like at one point in the game. Everybody just started looking forward to game four but do you think that when the going gets tough that kawai could go longer on donovan to really try to shut them down. I think you'll have to and look nicholas. i think i- looted to it. Maybe a month or so ago appears to be an old twenty nine. I mean he he just can't give it to you on both ends of the court for forty minutes a night every playoff game and i remember last year when he was doing. The low. management is first season with the clippers. People were telling me look in the league. He's gotta do this. It is something with the knee. I mean like is not just the mitchell thing. They were saying where he just doesn't wanna play. He feels like he has to do it and he does have to do it now this year. Crediting him he played a lot of back to backs was obviously going every night in the playoffs. But i think. I think the clippers. Almost they're like. We're going to try to win it without exhausting him on the defensive in but when push comes to shove we absolutely have to put him there on the guy defensively. Then we're going to have to and almost think there's a deal and he knows it too. We'll try to win without me having to guard donovan. But if i got to then then i.

But that's my that's my apple opinion is you're asking about it I do think. I agree with almost everything you said except Yes plan a package. Everything at a superstar. If that doesn't happen you at least ask to move up top five and then you'll and then you know whatever. Gm you call is gonna laugh and hang up the phone but at least you at least tried at that. Job by myers plan. C. is just to use the two picks probably where and then and then you get into variance of plans like us one pick and then traded the other picker. Whatever okay we can. That's a whole other exploration. We can do The only thing. I disagree with you with is. I wouldn't split the difference. I wouldn't do the long-term raw player and then the more sure. Now i would go for two sure things right now because you've already got the raw long-term play james wiseman and he's going to have of enough of a time getting legitimate meaningful playing time that even if you were to select a more long-term play. I don't know that that player gets playing time anytime soon. In in in order to properly develop and then reached that ceiling. That would be my only concern. How many result monster. They really have available. Nexus that's the other thing as is like if if you're trying to get to guys who can help you right away. You're you're doing that for the purpose of giving them immediate rotation minutes and i'm not sure they have guys right now. Currently on the t. seven. Who are definitely going to warrant major rotation minutes next season. You have seven guys. Then you're gonna use that mid level on someone who's going to be a rotation caliber guide europe to eight and then you know more spots and you've got two picks.

"A a traditional interior defender slash rim-protector type whose helpful and that's why. That's why i stopped short on the rudy gobert comp because all that stuff that you're talking about draymond green to maybe just focuses on the fact that he's seven feet tall and has this incredible wingspan of the is one of the smartest defenders in the nba. There's a reason why if it was just to be big and strong than a lot of a lot of players would be as good defensively as ribeiro's but he's got the smarts to why agree with you. I'm a little dubious about his. Feel for the game but you can make up for some of that with experience. Which is why. I use a comp like clint capella who look i. Don't i don't cover comfortable. I don't know that well. And i don't have a good feel for what his feel for the game or basketball. Iq is but it took him a long time to get to where it is now. I think you could see something like that. For wives to our next question is from angels zero nine zero one seriously. I'm tired of seeing lists of mediocre trade or free agent possibilities for the dubs. We already got that. Are there any big name centers or shooters. We can seriously consider cut through the crap and be honest. That's so interesting to me that question the way that it's framed because it sounds like we're in charge of who gets traded and who is available. We're not just waiting through crap and just ending people crap like when i bring up a name like wayne ellington being like hey man. I'm not giving you what's really about the happen. I'm not giving you the behind the scenes scoop. No the skin scoop is. We don't know what player will be available. And it's not like you can get on this podcast and be like guess. What damian lillard it's happening and then it happened so it doesn't work that way so this is not like i. I don't know it was so funny like this. Anti media framing of the question is is pretty fantastic and yet he wants media people to answer that question. And so yeah. Give me the biggest name. You can't say okay. I'll just forget that the salary cap exists off. Forget that will luxury tax exists. And i'll just. I'll be like i'll just look at you know maybe bringing in donovan mitchell.

"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..

"The clippers have gone all in on paul george. The clippers have agreed to a four year. Max extension that is worth one hundred and ninety million dollars. That loss amid alongside kawhi leonard. Who still has another two years on his current deal with the clippers so shannon how surprise real five is extensive. Give it makes sense for paul george because you get long term financial security and i guess for the clippers considering what they gave up they basically mortgage their future. Kuwa- was a free agent. You'd have to give up anything. Why came there voluntarily. But in order to get co co wired sidekick you had to trade garnering alexander in four or five number one draft pick so basically your future until twenty twenty six. You got no future when it comes to the draft. Yeah so. I guess this what you had to do skip. And if worse comes to worse you can trade him and try to recruit. Some of that back is very difficult to trade someone if about to be a free agent and he doesn't make a long-term he's not willing to make a long term commitment to you so that so i get it on both their parts. Paul george ankawa buzzkill. I'm i'm confused. This max money mags. Money should go to the top guys. Getting getting scale when i look at paul george paul george in his last five elimination games. He's averaging twenty point thirty seven percent field goal shooting. He's one four record in game seven against denver at ten point four. Sixteen now. I know what paul george or his first couple of years going head to head with lebron in miami with d way to botch. I remember that. But i also remember what happened. Those last two years in indiana also remember what happened when he was in okay. O'casey withdraw forty five and he hit five. I remember that russell. Forty five versus donovan's forty four and paul george later me. Yep so he did. And i would you give somebody that kind of money you banking on what. They're going to be moving forward.

"So it's I think that's a huge mismatch. This week clippers clippers taken on the Pelicans last night. Paul George Making his debut lonely night for him without his Buddy Leonard in the lineup. Why will something we like to call load management? PG Thirteen though came out finished with thirty three points. Nine rebounds the clippers however took the loss one thirty two one twenty-seven NECAS costing the clippers. Win Swift this load management that they're open three without him in the lineup. This is undeniable that he's costing them wins. Even the people supporting supporting the load management would acknowledge that the Pelicans were eight and played last night without Lonzo. Who hasn't been very good but also without Brandon Ingram? WHO's been sensational up to this point this season and Paul George comes back gives you thirty three and twenty four minutes? He was great. He came back earlier from the injury. Then I suspected than I expected and he looked better immediately than I expected credit to him by the way who we remember correctly that the Los Angeles Clipper this year that was top three in the MVP last year league-wide seat regular seasons Leonard. It's Paul George who was top three defensive player of the year voting top-three MVP VP. Leonard was not but yeah he is absolutely unequivocally costing them once and I. I know that the argument is well. It won't matter if he's better in the postseason because of it. But that's an unknowable. And I know people say last year well the how can you criticize that. He missed twenty two games when they won the title. You know the second most load manage player in the NBA last year was Joel embiid. So I'm just curious when the raptors played the sixers in round two of last year's playoffs if the raptors raptors one would that also have been a victory for load management one of those load managing. Player's GonNa win one was going to lose for the last point and I think it's the one that's most relevant last year's there's raptors he load. He rested twenty two games last year. They lost five of them. They were seventeen and five. He's missed three games this year. They've lost all three of them. The clippers do not appear to be nearly as equipped as the raptors. Were to deal without Kawhi Leonard because deep deep they're not as deep they don't have the depth there absolutely is is costing them games in the narrative lash load management is getting way too much credit for for success and the Raptors Championship. First of all he was still hobbled in the playoffs and it was pretty amazing performance. Bryant the fight through the quad injury that he was dealing with you did have a warriors team which was decimated as well with injuries. So I think it gets too much credit in general and I think the clippers are being a little bit too cute with this and it is going to cost them and I wonder do you think there's a scenario where in the back end of the season. This might blow up in their face because they do start looking at. Hey we have to pick up the pace a little bit. We do have to start winning games. Maybe getting those top four spots or somewhere in there where I think. It could backfire on the clippers as an aside. Paul George finished up the game. Even though he did have thirty three points and said he felt terrible. said he failed badly. He could've John Moore said it felt like a preseason game though shoulders did feel healthy which is the takeaway but he gives thirty three and nine on a game where he said. He wasn't playing that great could he. Could he get better better enough. We're we're we're Paul George is talking about is the clippers is a team were horrific defensively. He had five turnovers and he only played twenty four minutes. I'm sure what he's really talking about. Is Paul George is not here to play twenty four minutes and in those twenty four minutes. He was in foul trouble in the five thousand. So that was part I. I don't know exactly what they're playing was minutes wise but I wonder how much the foul trouble played into at least to a degree. But the young Paul George coming back makes it a lot more palatable win quite Leonard Mrs Games. It's why why I was. People really started paying attention to this last week. I was on this two weeks ago when four games into the year. He missed a game because I said hold hold on. You're going to load manage before Halloween when Paul George is not even there yet if I thought. PG Twenty Games. They said it would be around ten and end that being right around ten if the clippers new that the fact that quite couldn't stomach couldn't deal with it until George back that this wasn't the very first game of the year that he missed or even wait another week until you and Paul George get on the floor together but yes it is costing them and how deep do people think the West is because I believe when no distracted the mavericks or the Spurs or the sons who are really surprising team. I think there are five. Excellent basketball teams teams in the Western Conference. There's obviously both teams in La. There's Utah which added Conley added Boyer. Bogdonovich had a great off season. There's dimmer which was the the two seed last year that if Yokich gets going can be very dangerous team and there's Houston who just beat the clippers a couple nights ago five teams one one of those teams will be on the road in the first round and one of those teams will be home after the first round. Go ahead and that's what I was referencing. The back end of the season at the clippers find themselves outside of those top four seeds. Do they all the sudden start to change their methodology and then it all blows up in their face it just to me. It's way too early to go with this extreme of the rest I would argue. It's not the top four seizure worried about. It's the top three because if you are four yeah you're in court but you're playing one of the you're playing one of those five one of those teams going home in the first round before the year. I said I thought it'd be the clippers. Everyone thought take for this for the just to make a take shake like just to get it. The reason I feel that way and felt that way is because we knew Paul George is going to miss time and we knew who I was going to load owed manage and the idea that they're just going to be able to roll out of bed come the post season and even if I'm wrong that they'd be gone in the first round they they're putting themselves selves imposition. Were of those five teams four and the clippers. They would have to be three of them in a series to go to the NBA finals. Not that they don't and get the Kings in round one or whomever the.

I don't believe that. And I believe it's important to care just a little bit just to make sure you modify some little some little things here near the tweak your game. That's all. I mean, I'm confused with this. I mean, you gotta love this. Because this is the way Russ has always been he was the guy UCLA who cut lines in his head. He was the same guy when nobody believed in them when his only other scholarship was the Portland state. He signed a UCLA. I remember young guy in the gym who was penciled in not to start at the end of the year. Russell Westbrook ends up being the fourth pick in the NBA draft. I remember draft a Stephen mex- your members draft day, he came out and said guess what I'm a point guard when everybody said he was a combo. We didn't play in the NBA like that you had to be appear pass in point guard to play the position. He changed a position what? Confused about is a guy who's essentially averaged a triple double triple double for the last five years is not an MVP candidate that confuses me because Paul George you. Let Paul Paul George wouldn't be Paul George without breasts. Look his doing Westbrook seven grits. Look westbrook. Sometimes takes ill advised shots. And he's not a good shooter. That's really the problem. Everything else. All the armchair psychology is nonsense. This man like everything he said, just then if you hate on Westbrook. That's a problem. I mean, this dude puts out of every professional athlete in the world on a high level. No one I can't even say anyone puts out the same effort as west never. Nobody all effort all the time always in attack mode. And then he says that he says, you know, I'm blessed to be able to be in this position. I do my best. I tried my problem wealth.
