"That dude, you know, the sort of the book on him is like, he's just short, not a great athlete, kind of like a fire hydrant, gets by with craft and footwork and guile and I got to say he's got craft in footwork and guile up the proverbial wazoo, but he is quicker in short spaces than I think people give him credit for. His first step fast twitch, not even first step is just like twitchiness. If you watch the Knicks who play a lot of ISO ball, he's like roasting really good defenders like Paul George Kawhi Leonard he's like beating these guys off the dribble getting inside position on them for floaters and stuff. He's been fantastic and yeah, that is kind of the original sin of this. So let's spin it forward further. First of all, can I make one real quick point in fairness to the mavericks as far as their past history of cap space with and versus now? Listen, one of the main attractions of hiring former longtime Nike executive Nikola Harrison's your general manager is he does have strong relationships, not just with players, but especially with players, agents as well throughout the league. I do think he can be more effective as a recruiter than Donnie Nelson was. I also think players will be much more interested in playing for Jason Kidd than they were for Rick Carlisle. And with Luke and we all have immense respect for novitskiy. But you're talking about recruiting to a 23 year old MVP candidate versus a 30 something, hey, how much elite basketball does Dirk have left? So I'm not sitting here telling you, I think the Mavericks are going to hit home runs in free agency. I just pointed out that it is different circumstances. That is very fair. And I said on my reaction pod with windy the other day that yes, the recruiting with Luca is just a different ball game. There are going to be guys who view him as ball dominant as he has been as very appealing player to play with depending on your skill set. You're in Los Angeles, the clippers and the Mavericks play tonight. I am in Los Angeles. I am staying near the Mavericks and have seen lots of mavericks in the last 24 hours. What has been the reaction you've heard to kairi's press conference yesterday where? And I'll just say what he said. He said nobody ever talks about his work ethic. He said he was an incredibly selfless leader in Brooklyn. He left a team in fourth place exactly where it was supposed to be. He was supposed to do. He was incredibly selfless as a leader. He felt disrespected by the nets brass and wish he had done more research on them, hashtag doing your own research. And yeah, what was the reaction you got from Mavs people about that? You know, and look, you started the press conference off by saying he feels really wanted in Dallas and that was almost like, you know, the setup moved to go on and go on the attack on the nets. It's like the jab step to set up the going and Duncan on the net. Here's the deal. There's an understanding you don't trade for Kyrie Irving and just think everything's going to be quiet and peaceful. You know there's going to be stuff and frankly, I think that the bigger reaction yesterday was relief because we're sitting there. We get into the practice that practice over at USC. We get in there and Cairo scrimmage and then I think it was The Daily Beast had this story about Kyrie, deleting the Instagram post that apologized for posting the movie that obviously led to his suspension and all that. And it's just like, man, like literally not even through a first practice and this is a potential major controversy. So I think more than anything, there was a relief of there was a series of questions there and he kind of took a while to get to it, but he at least said I stand by my apology. So that was kind of like, okay, this is not going to be some kind of crazy, here we go again, controversy in that regard. And that's the thing. When you have Kyrie Irving, it's just like you hope that day is not the day where things just go haywire and he's talking about why isn't the focus of my work ethic. Why is it all on the off the court stuff is like, Kyrie man? Listen, if you think people want to come in here and talk about anti semitic controversy on a constant basis like dude, I don't know anybody who got into sports journalism with that being their goal, like trust me, we would love to talk about basketball. We would love to talk about the fact that this is that he is one of the most brilliant offensive creators certainly of this generation. One of the best ball handlers and 6 foot two type of finishers in the history of the game, but there's always so much other stuff and then that other stuff. He barely played in half the games. When he was in with the nets, mostly because of all this other stuff. So it's hard to focus on the basketball brilliance. And obviously the guy, you're not that skill without putting a lot of work in, but the other thing about, you know, if you want to talk about work ethic, show up to your actual job that you get paid for, the vast majority of the time, and he hadn't done that, and we'll see how it goes in Dallas, but

"A good month for them. I wouldn't say it's been a great month, there are still, like last night, it felt like the salt that was going to win that game. It just felt like the Celtics had a little more juice in a little more versatility than the clippers. That a lot of stuff had to go right for the clippers to win that game, but that's a road game against maybe the best team in the NBA. I mean, that's not, that's a game the clippers were underdogs in. I'm just fascinated to see what they think of themselves. If they think they have enough or if they are actually going to go out hunting because they've got the Covington coming not playing, he's a 12 million whatever contract. They have a trade exception. I think a $9.7 million trade exception. They have a pick to play with. They've got tools to play with. I think it's been a good month for them, but not a great month. I picked them to make the finals before the season, and I can at least say they're starting to look like the team that I thought they would be just structurally, maybe not the end result isn't as dominant, but structurally, this is the team that I was curious to see, and the last month has made me more curious, because they have some interesting things going on. I mean, look, if you look at why, he's still not, he's still very much building himself back into form. He has said this ACL has made people think it's a one year deal. He says it's a two year deal to get back to where you want to be from before the injury. So maybe he's talking about he's not going to reach peak this season, but you certainly can see when he's going to the floor, it's building and building and building. He shows flashes. The first time he played against the Celtics, unbelievable, ten for 12, you know, he was just all over the quarter dominating on both sides. I don't think you need to see that every night just yet. I think his whole thing is he's building for the playoffs. And if you look at their schedule, they've already played now, I think, 8 back to back. So they only have three left before all start. That's a big deal for them because, you know, Kauai doesn't play in back to backs. And neither does John wall. So once they get out of that, but after that second half, I think we talked about this last time I saw you is that they only have 21 games after the all star break. Could be a good thing because they have a lot of practice time could be a bad thing because they don't have a lot of game time to really kind of mesh, but ty Lou told us, give me 15 games, 15 games fully healthy with all my pieces. I can get them to mesh and get all the chemistry and cohesiveness and everything together in time and he was asked 15 consecutive games and he was like, yes, not one, not two, not three, 15 consecutive games, and then he dropped an F bomb, and then apologized to us for cursing. But that's what ty loose frustration is. He just wants these guys healthy for a 15 game stretch consecutively, but he's not going to have that if they're back to backs and guys aren't playing in these back to backs and he still has to mix and match. You know you've been exposed to a lot of load management in the NBA. When a season is 82 games long and the coach is like, can I just have the real team for 15? 15, 15 out of 82. Like the other 67, yeah, I'll finagle it around like a mere coffee and Moses Brown. Can I have my team for 15? That's it. You know, the other thing too is how you're saying you're just starting to see this clipper team that you envisioned. I think what we saw at the beginning of the season and the clippers were, I think, primary example of this. A lot of these veteran teams, it took a while to their engine to get revving. A lot of them are just like, I'm not going to bust my ass in October, November, you know, it's still December. No, we're going to slowly get cooking here. And then I'm going to work my way up toward the playoffs. And the clippers were prime example of that. I think a lot of nights those guys were just like, we're here in Oklahoma City, we got to play two consecutive games against the thunder, you know, we have bigger things in mind. We're looking toward the playoffs and I think they were guilty of that. Marcus Morris said that many times we walked on the floor and we thought, we're going to win just because of the roster we had on paper and sometimes they get bored. You look like in Detroit, right? They needed an unbelievable comeback to beat the pistons. And when they play against these younger teams that are more athletic, they have nothing to lose. You tend to see the clippers at nights go through these lows. The other team looks so much better than them, and then all of a sudden, what do they do? They end up coming back at the end and winning when they kind of like start caring about it. And then their games, when they really care about it, and it's like prime example, the Celtics, when they play against the Celtics, they're so predictable. You know you're going to get a great game from Paul George Kawhi Leonard. Those guys are amp for those type of games. It's the other games. It's being in Orlando, you know, and then playing on a Charlotte, you know, back to backs or something like that. Those are the games where the clippers don't look that great. Yeah, you know, I mentioned all the teams in the west that are just coalescing. I didn't mention the pelicans who lead the Western Conference despite all of their key players missing lots of games. And that's the sort of physicality matchup that I think would be tough for the clippers, but I guess here's where you mentioned Paul George.

"Team. 7 and three in their last ten games lost in Boston last night to a Celtics team that has found its footing again. And that was a revenge game for the Celtics because the clippers blue Boston out in LA two weeks ago. And that felt like a game as did the sixers clippers game, which the sixers also won in Philly about a week ago. That felt like a game between two teams who were like, oh, you're really good. We're really good. This is fun. This is a playoff level game. And because Kawhi is starting to look like kawaii again, the clippers, it feels like ty Lou is starting to play the lineups that he really wants to play. So just last night in the Boston game alone, we saw lineups with Kawhi and Paul George at power forward, so it's like wall canard Powell Kawhi zubots. We saw the 5 out lineups that we know that they want to now they didn't do well last night because Robert Williams was on a pogo stick, getting every offensive rebound and Duncan on people, but we saw the 5 out lineups and we saw some that didn't have either Reggie Jackson or John wall in the network point guard list lineups, your canard, Paul George Kawhi, Powell, Morris, Powell, batum. Didn't see Covington supposed to be the center in those lineups. He's been he's been banished. And when they play those lineups, or even when they played the big lineups, what's been encouraging to me is they kind of just play random basketball, particularly when they're 5 out, which is, okay, who's got the worst defender on them and for the Celtics, like, they don't really have any worst offenders Derek white was the closest thing because Kawhi can bully Derek white. Bring that guy up, set a screen for choir PG if there's a double and Kawhi was getting off of it early, like norm Powell, you roll down the lane. I'll hit you, boom, boom, open three after open three after open three. Random is okay because the clippers thing has always been, well, they don't have an identity. They're just kind of out there figuring it out on the fly because they haven't played enough together. They don't have an identity. Random can be an identity if it's done with like force and purpose and they start these possessions early enough in the shot clock so that they have time to swing swing swing swing swing corner three. They're starting to look like the team that I think they thought they could be. So I'll just start with that. What is the feeling about Kauai right now? And it's not like they're blowing the doors off. People step in and three in their last ten isn't great. But do they feel confident in them? It's always hard to tell what the clippers like, do they feel like they have it? Like a real contender or not. So Kauai and just the state of the team. I think they do look number one quiet play season high 37 minutes last night. That is an absolutely great sign for him that he's been now at 35 minutes and it's still building up. Of course I think as I said this before, you always got to wait till the next day to see how Kawhi Leonard's feeling because you just never know what kind of spill he took that look fine at the time, but then all of a sudden the next day, something pops up with him. But that's a positive sign. I think they look at their team as like, they're only like, I think three and a half out of first in the west. And what are they not ten and four now with LeBron iBook with Kawhi and PG together? Yeah, I think they play last night was I think the 13th game they've had them together or something like that. So yeah, it might be ten to ten and even I think they're ten and four now. So knowing that John Wallace told me he's like, have you told us that we were going to have this record with only having Paul George and Kawhi Leonard for this many games so far and all the injuries we would have had we'll gladly take that because there's still learning how to play with each other. Last night I thought there were a couple things. One thing is the clippers always get up for games like this. They love playing the Celtics, so they love playing the clippers just like that Spider-Man meme. I think they see each other when they come and play together. They see basically a team that's built around two wings that are elite and can dominate games. They get up for that. But if you saw late in that game, Kawhi Leonard or Paul George were getting blitzed, they didn't handle that very well. Especially like if Paul George was blitzing that corner, there wasn't enough movement. Clippers Achilles heel is turnovers. Sometimes they don't really get up for games. They go through these offensive lows. Even though Reggie Jackson's banked up, you saw him limping pretty badly in that game. John wall thinks still figuring out his role. We got to still see he's still going to have that elite John wall speed left in them because right now he's not playing it back to back games. He's not even playing in consecutive games sometimes. He has an ankle injury. And then when he comes in, he's still shooting like a lot of shots from outside. Sometimes he has questionable turnovers. Sometimes he wants to really push space. I feel like I haven't seen him push the pace. He was earlier this season. Recently, he hasn't the last two or three weeks he's fallen off that we just haven't seen as many like John wall creates a corner three out of like a two on two fast break, like not even an odd man advantage or anything like that. And last night he took no ISO long twos early in the shot clock for John wall, please. Yeah, yeah. A couple other things. When they're at their best and Tyler was harped on this a lot.

So yeah, so no matter how good the clippers are, Paul George, Kawhi, no matter what, even when people are like, oh, the clippers might be the team out here in LA. That's still a Lakers town. Unless you're Billy Crystal sitting courtside. Can I give you a flashback Friday reference? It's like every Transformers has their gobots. And Lakers will always be the Transformers of LA and clippers will be the gobots. If you go to Chicago, I mean, the White Sox could deliver. The White Sox could be an exciting young team.

"Next June, probably not a concern. The thunder will have the higher pick. So the swap won't even happen. The clippers will have their pick in June of 2023. 2024, the pick is OKC's outright. 2025 is another swap. That's where it gets interesting because two years from now, almost three years from now, if the clippers have eroded badly because Kawhi is no longer Kawhi, and they're sinking and the thunder are actually going to be good, by the way. Like the thunder is going to get holmgren to pair with Shea gildas Alexander. And they've got some interesting role guys. Like Josh giddy, and they will add others. They've got all those picks to use, not just the clippers, but others. They will pivot at some point soon. The thunder to winning, in which case the swap in 2025 could really cost the clips because if the clippers aren't good, and the thunder are, now the thunder are swapping to get their pick, and then in 2026 is the final piece. Another pick outright to the thunder. So the clippers, there are consequences to come here if they can't turn this thing around during the Paul George Kawhi Leonard era, which, by the way, could end as soon as June of 2024 if either of them opt out. Now they both have player options for the exact same 48.8 million. I think chances are they both opt in and are with the Clippers through 2024 through the end of 2024, 25. But man, what are they by then? I just don't know. And there's certainly a lot hanging in the balance here. As you know, Chris, my general position here is getting those two guys is a victory in itself. The clippers changed the perception of them. I don't know where this goes. Certainly it'll be a disappointment if they can't get those guys healthy and make a couple of deep playoff runs. But it's too soon to call this thing a failure. Yeah. Everybody would have done. What the clippers did back in what 2019, which was to pursue and sign Kawhi Leonard because every team that had a shot was after him, including the Lakers and among others. And done whatever it took to get Paul George because as great as Shay gildas Alexander has become and the clippers knew he was going to be really good. He was good. They were very high on him. Yeah, you got to give up something to get something. At Oklahoma City. As has been well chronicled, they knew they had the clippers over a barrel in that moment and they used all the leverage that they could. So it goes without saying that everyone would have done what the clippers did. And Kawhi Leonard in his first two years played pretty well before that injury in the 2021 playoffs.

"Clipper fans would certainly welcome him back with open arms. He was part of one of the, I was going to say one of the most exciting probably the most exciting era in franchise history up until now with the Paul George Kawhi Leonard, but lob city was the first time anybody ever really gave a crap about the clippers or found them fun, found the must watch TV and, you know, Blake Griffin's gonna go down as one of the most beloved clippers of all time. There may be a low bar given that franchise's history, but it's not nothing. I think fans would love having him back. I think it would be a great look for Steve Ballmer and that group to welcome him back. And I think he actually could contribute a little bit there. Yeah, clippers make some sense contending team he could be kind of that four, 5, tenth man option on the bench. The other team I thought of was Portland, like the blazers have enough shooting to mask the deficiencies of Blake. He could be small ball 5 playing behind nurk it, she'd be playing with, you know, Jeremy grant, who can shoot it. Anthony simons, who can shoot it, Damian Lillard, who's great. Blazers are kind of in win now mode, so they'll take anyone that can maybe help them a little bit. That made a touch of sense to have the same team that went after Carmelo a couple of years ago. So I can see the blazers kinda, but he's the one guy Howard, that if we're talking in late September, of all the guys we've run through, he's the one guy that I would think might not be on a roster. Maybe. Yeah, I agree. I think of the guys we've discussed. And you had Lamarcus Aldridge on the list originally and then cut him, which is the right move, because I don't think he's coming back. Like I think in the next one to fall off this list potentially, either blaker DeMarcus cousins. I think those guys well, hell, if I'm gonna go that far. I mean, Carmel is the end of his rope. Like Schroeder because he's young and Dwight because he's still been productive. Those are two guys that I think are going to stick around a bit.

"Other Brooklyn like pick swaps all that shit. And could it just be Kyrie for wall and we'll throw you a pick and the nets can either see if they get what they try their luck with John wall or it's an expiring contract. Okay, my rule would usually always be, you know, there's only so many teams of cash space. It's hard to get anybody to take it and you overpay for people. And if you're a place that's not a destination, then you really have to overpay for people. And so Houston, although when it's good, it's probably a place NBA guys. It's not probably the place to be, you guys do like to go, but nobody likes to go anywhere by themselves. Anymore, so if you're used to Houston's like, they're doing experimenting with jaylen green, having the ball all the time. I think they're probably a no. Started a float wall. Right, it's a likely no, but I think you have to kind of factor in the pricing for Kyrie. You know, it's kind of like the Simmons hardened thing where you're going, which argument is Daryl making, which argument is Sean marks making, and Shawn marks was going to win the argument because we were like, at least our guy plays in games. Your guy doesn't, and you have to pay a tax on that. If you're doing some Kyrie wall thing, which you both agree, he would say no to it. Would you make the argument that you're like, we have to pay Kyrie? So why am I giving you wall on inspiring and the pick? I'm not giving you, you're getting a shorter deal. And you know, this is satisfied to know. Yeah, that's why it's a no. And by the way, like the wall contract now, although it's hard to add up to it, I wonder who will try to pick it off and go, you know, John wall for one year and an absurd number is he terrible, like he can't play basketball anymore. I don't think he's, you know, I think that's kind of an overreach. Actually just haven't seen him play. This is my second favorite one. What about the clippers? What if it was just Brandon Boston? No, it's like a Reggie Jackson. Or Luke canard, one of those two plus, I don't know, Powell. In the clips just swing for the fences, and they say, we're going to have a team that has Paul George, Kawhi Leonard, Kyrie Irving all in the same team. And that's what we're going to go to.

"Like they're just bargain shopping. I do understand the Patriots. I do understand the patriot Sally cap. The Patriots salary cap is very much like the cash I have in my wallet. Like, oh, I have $20. I bought a coffee. That was $17. If I get two for sandwich, it's like, okay, now I'm done. There is no good news, everybody. We got tyron Matthew. And we were paying him $12 million a year. Like, oh, great. It just feels very, it feels very almost seems like it almost seems like the NFL salary cap is a credit card in college. That you can either go nuts with or be responsible with. And it seems like the Patriots are just super responsible. We don't want to do this. It could hurt us down the road. The part I don't get is, they have a quarterback on a rookie contract who's picked in the middle of the first round, which is the biggest asset you have. You have everybody else is like, Derek Carr. I don't know, $40 million a year extension, right? Every good team that they're competing against is paying somewhere between like 20 and 50 million for their quarterback. And the Pats have a quarterback probably making like three or four, and they're like. Two rich for our blood. I think I followed the salary cap guy on patriot Sally cap on Twitter. I like that one. And excellent. I think we're going to have a ton of money next year. Preseason. I don't like to be in the preseason talking about next year already. Two years. Back to the clippers. They didn't really from a salary standpoint, get crushed. The first two years. But this year's team, which went 42 and 40, Paul George played 31 games Kawhi played zero games. $166 million payroll. $83 million luxury tax bill. The team cost $249 million. I guess the bigger picture thing for the clippers, it wasn't just a gamble on winning the title. It was a gamble on trying to own basketball in LA. It was bombers belief that he could build an LA basketball team that could either rival or surpass the Lakers. Right down to the fact he's building this multi-billion dollar basketball arena in Inglewood because he doesn't want to be tied to Lakers in any way. He's going to, we're going to beat these guys. And they get Kawhi and they get Paul George, Kawhi made first team on VA last year. Paul George made 13. So two of the best 15 guys in the league. So I still think it's defensible. It's just kind of amazing how bad the luck was with the Kauai injury when it happened. To have somebody heard his ACL in round two of a playoff series that they're probably about to win. But then it's a 12 month injury and it brings it to the next so it's almost like you somehow lose two playoffs with the same injury, which is almost endeavor, I guess, has a little bit of this with Jamal Murray, but that to me, that gets into some weird clippers cursed shit, which I was writing about 2009 about pulling the team away from buffalo and all the weird shit that happened. This is among the weirdest thing that's happened to them. I love that you were a wonderful mix of in depth analysis and then just talking about curses..

"News if you're one of the teams that could wind up having to play against the clippers. But Timberwolves or nuggets too, right in that first plane. Yeah, that's not great. Nope. So Paul George returned to practice. Will he return? That doesn't mean he's returning this season, but obviously it's a good sign though. It's a step in the right direction. The clippers, of course, have long said though that this is a long-term thing. They're not going to rush anything. I think if he's anything less than a 100%, they're not going to put him back out on the floor, but if he is, maybe that shakes things up a little bit in the playoffs. Sure, now we got used to the clippers kind of shenanigans in the playoffs last year after we knew Kauai was out. But it is interesting that they haven't ruled Paul George, Kawhi. Norm Powell. They have a rule to any of those guys out for the season yet. So there is some buzz and potential out there that let's see where we're at. Again, though, I do wonder like really those aren't normal piles a little bit different, but like Kawhi, you're not throw him right into a playoff game like that would feel a little odd. To me, but I don't know, to me, although this says is like, they're gonna, they're gonna have to be way up there as far as favorites for the title for next year. Absolutely. Pending one of the roster moves other teams make. And they're so deep. Like that's gonna be the thing and they've got all the pieces if they need to make trades or anything like that. So yeah, but we'll get there. We'll get there. We'll get to that. I was thinking about. The blazers have signed drew Eubanks and Chris Dunn to ten day deals in Keith I was asking you about this before we came out because it feels like these guys have been on ten days forever. Where are we at in terms of hardship today? Because this season has been bizarre and we've had hardship ten days. We've had regular ten days, some counts. What's the story here?

"On this outline that are very close together, which was who you enjoyed watching, but we were also your MVP candidates. I was going to talk about my MVP candidates right now. Now maybe mobly is one for you. Maybe you're ready to put mobile MVP talk. The fact that he's made made Cleveland fun to watch can not be can not be disregarded. That is a herculean effort right there. But I'm gonna throw I'm gonna throw an MVP candidate. I'm gonna throw two MVP candidates in the mix right now if you don't mind. Okay, go ahead. All right, number one. And I think this is actually a bigger deal than people realize, even though we all thought he was going to be great coming into this season. But that's Kevin Durant. Who? Yeah. You know, our buddy Mike wrote about him last week. It's a great street to check it out. Especially what he's doing from the mid range, but I don't even remember pre Achilles Kevin Durant, feeling as unfair as he feels this season. I don't know, like I don't know who can guard him. In my mind you need someone like Giannis, but you saw Giannis, you know, he didn't want to take on that one. I'm on assignment and kind of mess up their team defense in that series. And I do think Yanis is better as a help defender than a one on one defender is crazy as it sounds, but I mean, you look at all the great defenders in this league, whether it's Paul George, Kawhi Leonard, LeBron, when he's really, really trying. I just don't know that they have the height to guard the sky. And right now he's rising up and shooting above everyone. He's leading the league in scoring. We all got he I think we all had hope wishful thinking that he would be this good after the Achilles tear. But to me, I'm kind of blown away 'cause it feels like he's at the height of his powers, and granted, I think being a Golden State playing in that offense, playing with Steph Curry and Klay Thompson, kind of muted him to a degree, which was a fear all of us had, but Chris, he's been really, really blowing me away. And we had a number one on our top 100..

"Now. Now that Gasol's gone, it's LeBron, AD, Taylor Horton Tucker. That's it. Everyone else is gone. Everyone. Wow. We thought the Lakers had a lot of turnover this season before. They won a championship and we saw them bringing in. Schroeder and tres and Gasol and losing JaVale and Dwight and Ronda bringing in all these other pieces and it was like 6 players were turned over, something like that. And we were all talking about how much turnover that was. It might that mess with chemistry. And now rob politica, he doubled down. He didn't say, well, that mess with chemistry too much. I better back off and just kind of run it back from last season. No, he shipped out everybody. Everybody is gone. Aside from three players, we'll see. We'll see how it all plays out, but the Lakers very clearly have shown they're willing to take risks. They're willing to take chances here with their roster. And so predicting what they're going to do, it makes sense for them to go after James Ennis. But the Lakers have shown, they're willing to be unconventional. So who knows exactly what they're going to do with that spot? Somebody said in the chat, AD was at the Dodger game. Yeah, that's probably a good place for a big game for the doctors tonight, by the way. Somebody from periscope on Twitter said, but they brought back Dwight and rondo. And then I think was really key. If you're gonna have that much turnover, you need to bring back some of those voices from the championship team. And so like what rondo and Dwight they were they were gone for less than a year. Less than a calendar year they were gone for. So while you only have three players from the previous season that are back, you've got guys who have been part of the organization before and have won with the organization and really work on that long. So that's kind of the same grace here when we talk about how massive the turnover is with the Lakers roster. Ali ray long, who would be your choice for the last roster spot? James Dennis. It's James Dennis. Again, I've been looking at this Lakers roster since with the final pieces got added, and I've been saying for weeks now, they need another wing. Then I don't feel good going into the season with LeBron and Trevor ariza being the only guys who can really guard on the wing. Maybe THT becomes a guy who can do that. Maybe Kent bazemore can guard some of the threes. But I'm looking for a guy with a little bit more size where he can deal with those three fours. The guys who will float between the positions I'm talking about like a Jimmy Butler Paul George, Kawhi Leonard, if he was healthy, players like that. And again, I'm not saying that James Ennis would stop those guys. That's not what he is, but just physically, his physical makeup is better suited to deal with those types of players than if you asked one of the.

"Really matters through. Live usa folks right the. It does matter. Right into this for some isn't they. Don't really care but the sports folks that does matter right. You're playing and you're competing in other countries if you lose your other countries better than us which is not necessarily true. Because we didn't have lebron james. We didn't have chris paul. We didn't have steph curry jimmy butler kyrie irving james harden right. Paul george kawhi leonard where we didn't have these guys on that team right so but you do have kevin durant you do. Have damon willer you. Do zach levine devon booker jason tatum right you have you have guys who can put the ball in the basket and look you have banded up by. Who's a really good player bradley. Beal obviously is fantastic with second league in scoring right. Kevin love can provide some stretching the Court stuff. Chris melting can score but he's very inconsistent and drew how they can do a little bit of everything draymond green. Do a little bit of everything right. So you gotta get roster eddie you but it's just gonna be. How is that roster play together. I think this roster Play together pretty well. My prediction is the. Us is going to win the tokyo olympics in basketball right. But it all depends on how these guys play right. How they played get and it's the same thing when we talk about the brooklyn nets because or the two thousand eleven miami heat or the boston celtics in to that doesn't to dozen ten or the warriors with kevin durant or the houston rockets with russell westbrook james harden right when you put a bunch of stars together. A one team are examples the clippers obviously with choline. Paul george right when you put a bunch of stars on one team right. You gotta have the right. Coaching in place. You gotta have the right culture in place. You gotta have the right system in place. You gotta have the ability to get these guys to play winning basketball.

"What the do but you felt like. Hey defensively this was a unit. Will paul george kawhi leonard and patrick beverley. That can guard any body in the league. Including lebron james kevin durant whoever they come up against and we just haven't seen it and now we're seeing glimpses of them. Defensively come around behind the scenes. I don't know if it's because he coach lebron james to a championship but no was putting respect on tyrod. Tyrod lou is a championship. Coach was a championship player. And i watched him make adjustment after adjustment against the dallas mavericks in rick carlisle coach. I also play platelets. How little play with recap for. Ricardo requires a evil genius behind the scenes judgments. That's as good of a coach as you can get but tyron lou play chess match with them. And that's something colin that. I felt like the clippers were missing but they bought into title from what i see and i agree with you. I talk about a team. That doesn't get a lot of talk because we feel that brooklyn is the best team in the east. And they're rolling over. Milwaukee and the team is philadelphia. You'll course had doc rivers as a coach. I said this yesterday. I remember asking tony. Gonzalez the hall of fame. Football player tight end. I said how many players were as committed as you like really truly committed like russell. Wilson committed. Tom brady committed anton. Tony gonzales said about three percent. I was just floored and i was talking about this joy. Yesterday is indifference. I can't live with joel. embiid may have issues. He cares so deeply. He is so passionate. And i walked. Ben simmons and i gotta tell you i see a lot of hollywood. I see indifference. His game doesn't get better. And if you don can't motivate ya. I i do. I look at philadelphia now. And i said it yesterday. I was always a ben simmons guy. I don't think you can solve indifference ryan. You played in this league ten team nine ten years. Where do you go with. Ben simmons en worked in a shot in four years going to start tomorrow colleen called it a long time ago. I want to put this out there. I love ben simmons. He's going to also for very long time in the league. But i remember on your show you compared to the magic. Johnson threw up in my mouth. Okay that's all due respect. The reason i say that is not that he doesn't have lebron. James talent or magic johnson. Lack talent is that the game comes to easy for him. It's almost comparative physically to she killed o.'neil on the wing. What did i say. Check to different players right. Shaquille o'neal was so good in his prime he could go and chilling offseason. Make music do albums show up and give you forty and twenty ben. Simmons has that similar type of frame. Ben simmons six nine fast can jump out the gym natural instinct to pass in college. You know it. Great passes are not born on trees. So ben simmons is a guy who just content being walking triple double. Does he hurt you when you want a championship. Yes does it. Hurt you on the regular season. No guys don't scheme for you. They don't play that hard back in the day. I date myself. Because i think everything's done on a cloud now on the computer. We would get a book this thick on the other team scouting report. Which means we know everything that you do. So which means ben simmons until he works on his game gets a jump shot. he's going to be ineffective in the playoffs..

"And he's shot sixty percent from the field in this series. Which was incredible. No coca is on another level right now and like i said luca is one of the rare guys who can control the game but kawai doesn't in a different way. He's not the vocal leader. He's not outspoken. but ultimately he's going to get busy on the defensive end of the floor. I thought that he finally slip over in guarded. Luca as a primary defender tyler who say that for game seven he. He was excellent air but just the way that he scored a basketball man. And when you talk about the faith in the clippers people also don't understand rob paul. George didn't have a training camp. Paul george had surgery on both shoulders. The one mistake that paul george had is. He stepped in the playoffs and called himself. Playoff p by when you're little underhanded you don't raw attention to yourself. You don't need to do that right right. The other guy they got. The guy who pooh-poohed messed up dennis schroder demanded to start instead say turn down his extension and said you're gonna offer me a whole lot more money and i hope he gets the money but ju- attention to himself so Go hair out now. There's no doubt about. And i just want to throw out. It was bernard king so also players bernard king was unbelievable ryan before he got hurt and hurt his knee. Play for the knicks. Mostly and kareem abdul-jabbar shack. And now leonard. And i'm telling you people keep living on the the hapless clippers and they're no good. They were the number one three point shooting team. They have guys who can defending the perimeter. Long guys. paul george kawhi. I liked your team a lot. I give them credit and sometimes ryan you notice. You played for ten years. You there's comes a point in the season you have to get over. Do you know what i mean. Like like you push through. And they were pushed to the brink. Nothing they face from here on out can be as daunting as what they phased will rock think. Oh no rob in. I'm glad you gave me credit. And i want everybody to know so i'm rubbing your face a bit. I was talking with you. Rodney pete and. I told you that the clippers had them right where they wanted them. And you guys. You got a late me now. But i picked the clippers from junk pickup truck. But you guys do to hear that they were down three two. And i said they found a defense for luka doncic. They found a better yet. You found a lineup. That's what's impressive about luca it's not one. Man is not a certain defense. They found a lineup that had size with terrence mann plan point guard who was absolutely excellent and game seven. A young pup is coming on and shutout to title for bench and patrick. Beverley plantations man. A lot of a lot of coaches wouldn't have the gumption. Do you know right on the money. And a lot of a lot of coaches. And i've seen it in baseball managers. You know. they always say i got. I got a Dance with with the with the woman brought to you. Know what. I mean What brought to the party. Or whatever know if she's got two left feet and you read and you get it right you got to move on and a lot of are afraid because if it doesn't work out you know they'll be criticized but tai lou is different from a year ago and it doesn't mean that doc is a great coach you a championship but it was time to move on and i think i'm just curious people still don't want you. I hear i see on social media ryan and all the other stuff. Oh give them credit to win the championship. I wanna hear no. You can't be like that if you just watch what you saw a team that overcame a guy put on some showing luca a team that shot fifty one percent from three in the first three games. You overcome that storm back you. You win three road games in the playoffs and you send luca home for this. He larry bird going home for the second time at the hands of the clipper in. Let me throw this out to you too. So may say you know. Why would you have tyler. Stay in doc rivers. Go what you just brought. Up is the difference. And i played for both coaches under both coaches tie. Lou in that game seven played. Luke canard heavy minutes and there was some. Dmp's they're terrorists. A man was a fourth quarter guy that had been doc rivers documents in a game. Seven goes goes seven possibly eight deep. He ain't laying luke kennard. Lenore was excellent. I was questioning lucas on. It was absolutely excellent. But that's the difference with thai lue because he ran our defense in defensively. He kept trying different things on luca and if he finally cry he trapped They hard showed on him You know the they tried to play ice. Oh ball one on one and see if they feel you know you could tire him out. The ultimately tired him out but he found a lineup. That work rob so you do have to quit it. Tie lue and it's sad to me.

"Twenty six minutes after the hour. Welcome back justin adams. A cool guy isn't nicole. Thanks great to talk to excellent reporters in the area in the denver area to we try to cover it all here whether it's colorado state Unc see you broncos nuggets rockies little bit of avs i mean now you can't ignore it anymore. We have to be hockey guys now. We i think you have a chance of being more of a hockey guy. Yeah i mean my girlfriend is a figure skater. So she's in. she's in skating world. they're leads oversaw. there's a show. I need the cutting edge. Yes have you heard of it. have you seen it. I think she watched it. Yes i watch. I've i've seen like thirty times. Hockey guy gets hurt. Goes and becomes a figure. Skaters doesn't like it because he's a hockey guy but then ends up being pretty good at it. And they like that where he keeps his toe pick and falling over dude toe pick. It made me like that. It made me really respect that sport a lot more. I'll tell you. I love that movie. I've seen it like i'm embarrassed. How many times. I watched that movie. We own it on vhs. And i'm always just like yeah this movie and that was damn good movie. You brought it up. You've got to go back and watch this or sometime again because it's been long time so longtime an excellent one. Yeah for sure what's last night. Let's look at our picks colefax caccia yet. You've been rolling so much hundreds you did get you to cross over the thirty mark to Thirty wind mark in this so colfax and i pick every put. We're picking every postseason game we're not screwing with the spreads because we're picking every game so maybe we go with the spreads in the in the eastern western conference finals when there's latter less to cover but we're just going wins losses right now which i think is pretty damn tough in the nba playoffs at least this year. So you went. You thought wizards would survive. No joel embiid for the sixers. Sixers found a way to get done. Been sorta thing so you lost that one. you did. Call the hawks to close out the knicks. I lost that one. I thought the knicks would survive. We both agreed to the jazz would close out the grizzlies. And then this one i keep forgetting about. But it's the it's the most one of the most entertaining series series is mavs at clippers. You went with clippers. I with the mavs. Luca went off last night. So mavs up and coli. Leonard's just like harry. Houdini man the disappearing act for him. I think he went. What was his numbers. Last night. he hit twenty points. But that's this is leonard. This isn't he's a superstar. He was seven for nineteen was one for seven from the three point line. Is this clippers experiment. I mean this also lends itself colfax. It's not as easy everybody in the people that knock the nba. Like to say things like well you got to do is join a super team well. Look what the clippers have done. They tried to make a super team there. They tried it several times back with chris. Paul and blake griffin. They tried to make super team. It never got them far real far. We're always a perennial playoff team. They're going to get past the first round but they never took the next step. Well here you go with the paul. George kawhi leonard experiment and you're about to get booted from dallas a team. That was kinda flirting with the bubble a few times this year. So it's not as easy as just pairing up superstars. It's gotta be the right combo. It's gotta be the right coach. And i mean it's not the clippers are done but if you're dallas. You're feeling pretty good right now. Going up getting that third win with a heck of an opportunity so we tied it up or two games. I gotta try to tie it up tonight but it depends if we go opposite of me then i could but we could also stay even here so two games tonight. Two games not. I don't know. I think we might differ on. The lakers suns lakers to close out games tonight. Potential crazy nuggets at blazer suns at lakers nuggets players. I don't know what you're going to do there yet. They could both end their series. The nuggets could both in their series series. Tonight and then be ready to play each other. I don't think they wait until they get all the first round but we'll be done soon. I mean nuggets lakers will for sure be done by saturday. So maybe yes. I mean you just a few games. Few days. they'll be playing phoenix in the second round. It doesn't get any. I keep wanting to say it doesn't get any easier but i don't know why am i. Why am i not terrified of the sons and or the lakers right now and we. All kind of said the lakers be more dangerous than the second round. So this is huge tonight for the lakers. If they can survive tonight and then somehow get. Anthony davis back for game seven. Then do the nuggets. Catch the lakers. At the worst time they're getting healthier. the pressure's off at least because they made a pass the first round so i mean if you're nuggets fan are you secretly like to. We need the sons to freaking. Close the sing out tonight. Because the lakers reinforcements might be coming for la. Yeah yeah maybe so. Maybe so man. But i don't know. I feel weird overlooking the sons because they were so good the entire season clearly. The playoffs is they're not falling. We probably thought they would have. Yea and that's what so fun about this year. I mean it's so wide open. And i think this is how it's going to be in the future like. I think this is what it's going to be like now for the next ten years is you're going to see what's happening is even though the national media is knocking nicole. Eeo kitchen the nuggets or. They're not knocking them. They're not saying anything about him. I think that executives are looking at the nuggets. How many videos. How many scouting films do you think. Nba executives scouts have watched of a guy that seven foot. And maybe he's a little raw but he can pass really well he can pass and he has the ability to shoot. Maybe he's not there yet and nobody's talking about him. I'm telling you in teams are gonna start looking at. What the nuggets did they. They built themselves a team by drafting nicola. Yokich jamal murray. They brought in paul millsap. Okay good they didn't really have any glaring holes as they were building this team up right so when it came time to draft. They could take a few chances. Michael porter jr. was a risk. Because of his health he would have been a lottery. Pick top three had has not been a major concern. He only played a handful of college. Basketball games so that scared most nba teams so. He fell all the way to denver. Denver said listen. If he doesn't work out we don't really need him at this point. Gary harris was still playing at a higher level. So we don't really need him at this stage. They felt really good about wilburton. And look what's happened. He is knocking on wood. Or whatever the hell this is He has stayed relatively healthy. Just it'll silent doctor. He stayed relatively healthy and now he's becoming a big time score to the point where nuggets fans are like this disguise. I mean you're you. You had to think about this. When i said would you trade jamal. Murray michael porter. Jr. for damian lillard.

"Subash is development. Has been phenomenal. I think they're they're in a really good spot. I'm right there with you Sam. I think you know there for me. They're my second favorite team to come out of the West. Yeah and it's it's interesting with I'm sorry, I'm a basketball reference page comes up, and in Australia I get these points bet ads where they combine like the faces of two people Church. And the faces that combined. They do like Duran jokic combining for six threes. So they do like a photo shop, where they combined those two phases where it's like Kevin Durant's goatee and like Nikola jokic is faced with Kevin Durant's hairline. Like looking back home. That's jarring. I'm like a little bit fucked up right now. Just how about the brake need a break here, okay. So with the Clippers, I think the reason is that when the titles kind of similar to the Lakers insofar, as they have a lot of different ways they can play you. Like if they need to go big and defensive across the front line or across the back court, you can play Beverly. Paul George, Kawhi Leonard home, I guess like one of Marcus Morris or Batum and then Zoo Bots at the V. Like if you just need a lineup, they can go out and shut. Shut down defensively. That's a damn. Good defensive line up. If you want to Foster ball movement, you throw Rondo. If you want to get some real floor, spacing you toss in Serge Ibaka. Like, they can go small and play, like, you might be able to go out and rock like Rhonda, Liu Kang yard, Kawhi, Leonard, Paul George and Ibaka in these like wild small lineups that can like, just run teams off the floor with like spacing and scoring and ball movement and everything wage. Like, there's have a lot of different ways they can play you, depending on the matchup and they have a nice little combination of different things that they can do within those lineups that are tweaks. Like, you can throw off the two men. He'll Foster some bald movement. He's knocked down shots from distance this year, although he's kind of cooled down a little bit. Any provides like real size like you can play him at the four and just call log. End up in a spot where you're in a good situation. Yeah. No I mean that's kind of the thing and and you're right just like the Lakers, they really kind of have the several different line-ups that they could run through and and really sort through and, you know, throughout a playoff series. They can they can throw so many things that you and I just feel so much more comfortable with the fact that like Rome Kawhi Leonard doesn't have to be the point guard cuz he said, many times he didn't want to be that guy. And I think that's kind of just open so many more things for them. And Grand has been great coming in, you know, and and Page has people excited. So I just think they're in a good position in that sense. Not if they play the Lakers in the first round though, like that's just brutal. Why do you think the Clippers will not win a title?.

Guess with steve balmer will have been doing. He would have been keeping doc rivers now quite short when they went to hawaii and paul were thinking about letting go of doc rivers. I'm quite sure but look the things by the By the events that happen quiet. Paul's do what you gotta do. But i'm quite sure those guys said we want or if those guys said we want at the head coach gets he was gonna be the head coach especially when the contracts four paul george and kawhi leonard gave them.
