Why Isn't Governor Abbot Deploying the Texas National Guard to Defend the Southern Border?
"Is betty lou in south texas. I'm a third generation texan Thank you for all you're doing. I am disgusted by the deplorable hans. Fly of illegal immigration into our mighty state and wants to great one nation under god. I'd like to hear more about governor abbott and other governors. What are they doing to forestall this horrible mind stress on fly. Thank you take care. God bless god. Bless thank you betty lou. She makes a great point. It's a great question. In fact tucker. Carlson asked that question last night and has apparently repeatedly invited governor abbott on his show. Evidently governor abbott has declined because tucker keeps asking the texas governor. Why are you not deploying the texas national guard. Why are you standing up to the incompetent. Inept utterly failed biden harris administration on this issue. Here's a. Tucker carlson said last night we opened the show with horrifying pictures. What's happened at our southern border. Which is completely open in. This country is being invaded. No that's not an overstatement more than a million people this year expected by the rest of the world. It's been going on for months. And we've asked texas governor greg abbott many times to come on this show to explain why he hasn't called the national guard to seal the texas border and protect the rest of us from this invasion. Greg abbott has refused to come on repeatedly so pretty soon possibly tomorrow we plan to invite his primary opponents on this show to describe what they would do if they ran texas. That might be an interesting conversation. Governor abbot one. More chance to come on sincerely. Please come on and tell us how you plan to save the rest of us. What is happening in your state. Isn't that a reasonable request. What is what is texas gonna do texas it roll over. I lived there. I love that state. I know the texas spirit. It's not acquiescence
Is the Left Intentionally Trying to Kill Off Conservatives?
"I don't know that. I fully ascribed to john. Nolte's argument that people like sturt. Stern went on a tear. Recently where he mocked all the people who have been dying of cova the radio host has been six or seven conservative radio hosts who've died of covert and they were anti vaxxers apparently or allegedly and they were anti mask and they got covert and some of them had a deathbed conversion. I hope people get vaccinated. They supposedly said who knows if any of that. What portion of any of that is true but nolte's argument is by mocking and ridiculing and taunting people. The left is intentionally trying to kill off conservatives. I'm not sure that there's not some merit to that. I'm sorry. I've been thinking a lot about that since i saw the article last night looking for mexican if ivermectin is effective against covert as many studies. Suggest it is. Don't believe me. Look at the nih on the nih website. Why are they show. Anti ivermectin tucker. Carlson last night made a pretty pretty profound observation about drugs. In america and how easy it is to get one kind of drug but not another. Check this out so early treatment. Not just with ivermectin but with all of the therapeutics that have been used in the past year is amazingly and mysteriously attacked denied ignored. Anybody who touches it. It's touching the third rail. And i discussed it a few months ago and they came after me. My twitter account was suspended. It's still suspended even after. I appealed but the twitter courts are apparently not in session now and they haven't responded to my emails in the last three weeks. Perhaps this segment will help. Unlock it Other physicians had been similarly attacked. They've had their prescriptions denied. So why is it happening. Why is early safe. Effective treatment not being talked about. I think that's a very very important question.
How Biden Created a Crisis at the Southern Border
"Country is in is in danger. If you look at the southern border you realize that might charge and not only mine. Many that the left wants open borders which means no country was completely at valid and the naive the lying the foolish who said oh democrats never said that there for open borders and i read that i read that and i heard that i realized that the human condition somewhat pathetic. They didn't say it therefore they're not for it. They're doing it but they didn't say it I see that's what i'm supposed to believe you. How many coming out from haiti in the last week with sixteen founded or something and then the faa bands drones from photographing videoing. What is happening. Are you aware of that. You watch tucker carlson. We certainly aware of it. The government is corrupt. Because it's run by the democrats. And i have no patience intellectually or morally for those who say well republicans are no better really. Republicans are no better. Wow you how long. I heard from people Both parties playing on both parties. Fascinating silliness all. Reflected was the unwillingness of the person who said that to take the stand.

Do you feel you and this is why if you have daughters stories like this is the reason why call my daughter three or four times a day right now. Gabby petito and brian laundry boyfriend girlfriend notch normal boyfriend and girl from them have my anxiety going through the roof the zion a little bit so they were kind of like no matter where they would rent truck they would drive all over the country. They would take pictures. They would do blogs right so the fact that she didn't speak to her mother in a couple of days was normal. So you know after a week. Mom said look. I haven't spoke to my daughter what's going on. It was just weird so she reached out to the boyfriend bryan laundry. He didn't answer his phone. He didn't call her back. Seem pretty way called family than in a family would answer So she filed a missing persons report like she should've after filing a missing persons report. Police went to brian laundries house which is out in florida family's house and when they asked. Hey you know wisdom young lady Blog you travel world together. What's going on. They gave him the lawyers number. He got into loyd new to me. They're ready lloyd. Up gave molloy all calculated of leaving the question. He already added lawyer ready. Okay bass right has made him a person of interest kind of weird right you give number. You don't say what happened. They're not talking at all now. His girlfriend is missing his young ladies missing. She's from long island the away. Nobody says nothing. So now they find his body over the weekend in a wyoming on national forest park that they believe the remains are hers so now they believe he's a person interested in now. They can't find him he got. They don't know what he's he's more than a person of interest in. I mean i guess you got the. He's still a person of interest for legal purposes but clearly he's a suspect at this point as the same thing right person interest suspect. I don't know yeah. So a tic tac claims she was a drive-in and brian laundry hitchhiking. He jumped in a car and as they were saying they will go into that same. We call her tucker that. That's that's so insane.

Why Won't GOP Leaders Condemn Gen. Milley?
"Where is lindsey graham. Where is john kent. Where are these republican leaders who ought to be full-throated condemnation of gener- general milley. Here's the here's the tucker clip in context people with oversight seemed to be on his side this morning. Tom cotton. The republican senator from arkansas came on fox and friends to talk about mark milley. Here's part of that conversation. This book raises some serious concerns. That some of the allegations seem somewhat farfetched to me. But general secretary austin are going to be testifying in front of congress and just a few days and we'll address these concerns. Don't wanna jump conclusions yet. I know he will address it and will ensure that he addresses it but this is one of those claims. Obviously that seems a little farfetched idea that in american military general is going to warn adversary if an attack is coming as you say when donald trump was never even thinking about a military attack against china. The whole thing is pretty far fetched. We don't want to jump to conclusions yet. Really what conclusions at the time. That interview took place this morning in an already been. Conclusively establish that mark milley was pushing open. Racism on the united states military that he had bragged to fellow officers about resisting. The american president quote with guns and that he had told military officials that he not. The president controlled our country's nuclear arsenal. So much more evidence. Do you need exactly. And why does no one in washington consider this a crisis. The leadership of the pentagon some of them anyway consta- through the united states seems right to me. And frankly from where. I sit senator cotton and senator graham's milk toast response to. This crisis is pretty
Republicans Stay Mum as Details Emerge About Gen. Milley's Call to China
"Beast has gone from claiming that the bob woodward book might be wrong about general milley to now outright defending general milley in calling china secretly and warning them that if we attack them he'll let them know in advance and did show behind the commander-in-chief's back and now the line of the narrative is. There's nothing really wrong with holy crap. Have we gone from zero to sixty and twenty four hours tucker asked a pretty pointed question last night where where are the republicans on this. Where's tom cotton. Where's lindsey graham. Where are where are these hawks when it comes to what appears to be a blatant direct in your face act of treason as detailed by a forthcoming book. I'm really baffled here.
Matt Walsh Says Liberal's Single Standard Is Keeping Others Down
"Know, Matt. I find your commentary to be incredibly insightful. I watch you on Fox. A lot, and a couple of weeks ago, you were on is probably Tucker. And there was that segment playing about Nancy Pelosi and the fundraiser she had remember everybody was unmasked, of course, because you know, that's what the Democrats do. And you said something that's been on my mind for a long time. I've used the example with the audience I've cited you. Of course I give you credit. You said no, no, This isn't a double standard that we wear masks and Pelosi and the elitists Don't it's a single standard. Basically, you plead, shut your pie holes, You know? Yeah, You work for us, Shut your mouth, and it's just a consistent standard, and I said, I got up mad and I cheered and I texted Jim right away, the producer said. Please get mad on the show. If he's willing to. That was a great point. Well, yeah, I mean, I think it's there is important point for us to understand it. You know, we like to accuse the left of having a double standard. Uh, I think just sort of an easy way of interpreting what they're doing, But it's exactly that there's a There's a certain consistency, not just with covid, but With their approach to everything you know they're they're special. They're kind of in a different category from the rest of us. And so they get we saw the same thing, of course. Couple nights ago at the Met gala, and everyone is talking about against the double standard. We've got all these celebrities and AOC and everyone in there walking around in their fancy designer dresses, and they're not wearing masks because that would ruin the outfit, and it wouldn't match the output and you've got the servants in the background. The servant class. Wearing matter. I think at one point I actually had some servants in masks carrying the trail of her down as you walk to your car. Yes. Um, yeah, I saw that. That's real being Jim Can't believe that. Yes, there actually, As if no one in her entourage, Matt realize, like, Hey, this really looks bad.

Tucker whoever or lower sean say something and they go boycott mike lindell and the buffs and trolls. They say. don't boycott him. He'll w we see enough of that guy. I've always stuck with them.

Afghanistan Is Overrun With Terrorists Armed With American Weaponry
"Afghanistan has overrun by terrorists. Which is what we spent twenty years preventing and in the blink of an eye now afghanistan has overrun by terrorists again now. They've got billions and billions of dollars of our equipment are weaponry. Our helicopters are humvees. We have armed the taliban we. We left all the military equipment behind. I saw video last night of a helicopter with a body hanging from it now. It hasn't been corroborated yet. Verified of any doubt. These savages are capable of that. These are terrorists could they do. They kill they terrorize and we have capitulated with them. We have negotiated with them. We have cow to them. We have surrendered to them and everybody knows it. Every never-trumper who helped get trump defeated every media outlet that helped get trump defeated every republican who turned on trump and helped get him feed it. Every democrat who enthusiastically voted for this disgrace of a man and he is a disgrace. He's a disgrace. I saw guests last. Night on tucker. Carlson show who said i told my wife if he looks at his watch one more time. You can't honor men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice and gave their lives for this country for an hour. You gotta look at your watch where you have to go.
Capitol Police Officer Who Fatally Shot Rioter Ashli Babbitt Has Stepped Forward
"Make no mistake actually babbitt would-be alive today. If she hadn't tried to climb through that window. And i know that. I know that i also know that if a white cop had shot a violent black lives matter protester. That's all we'd be hearing about day in and day out but this guy is treated as a hero and we know why because ashley. Babbitt was an unapologetic trump's before we know why the guys treated like a hero and of course says we ought to be treated like a hero. He told lester whole showed the utmost courage in shooting that woman in the neck. I was afraid he said i did know. Couldn't see your hands didn't know if she was going to assassinate the speaker of the house. I had to kill her. Had to take her. Dad had to use deadly force. I feel so sorry for the families. I saw the husband. The widower of ashley babbitt interviewed last night on tucker carlson show. We'll play some of that audio for you. You ought to hear what her husband had to say. Because he's pretty angry too and you know what his response was to hearing. Lieutenant michael bird complain about the death threats. He was receiving to lester. Holt apparently ashley. Birds family has been getting death. Threats nonstop beginning january seven because unlike michael bird actually babbitt was immediately identified. Michael birds identity. Because of the design of the us congress had been protected. The only way people knew who he was leaked out or somebody tried to do some investigating and they can see his hand and he had a beaded risk thing on and they could compare it to if they had to do some detective work finally last night. He identified himself. And it's bear it bears repeating and we'll play the clip for you ashley. Babich husband has been threatened relentlessly as well.
Washington Post's Jennifer Rubin Accused of 'Running PR for the Taliban'
"How much of a frenzy is the mainstream media in over this disaster in afghanistan which means a disaster for the by administration now. The washington post has a columnist named jennifer rubin. And i'm not kidding you. She is a singularly spectacularly unpleasant individual if you want some late night enjoyment if you're ever bored and you're you're surfing the internet. Look up the tucker carlson jennifer rubin exchange tucker wright a couple of years ago oh it was brutal it was brutal. She is described as a con of. I guess a former conservative writer but as yuri from our team points out her wikipedia page describes her as a self proclaimed lifelong cuomo democrat. I hate to break it to you if you're a lifelong cuomo democrat. You're no conservative. She's never been a conservative. She's not a but listen to what she's doing now on the pages of the washington post. According to fox news dot com washington post columnist jennifer. Rubin is facing intense backlash over a tweet that appears to promote the taliban. Now she is one of biden's biggest media cheerleaders this conservative however a tweet. She sent out tuesday suggests. She's gone beyond echoing talking points from the white house. She tweeted taliban is asking not telling. We are quote. We are asking the americans. Please change your policy and don't encourage afghans to leave. This lunatic is literally praising the taliban this nut. I mean critics of course immediately pounds. The washington examiner is chief. Congressional correspondent wrote. Are you serious. Gop strategist mike. Whitlam matlock shot back asking at gunpoint. It's one thing to show for the biden ministration. It's another to show for the taliban as they hurt their own people. The podcast comfortably smug accused jen. Ruben of running calm for the taliban while former trump white house aide bed williamson similarly knocked the columnist for running. Pr for the terror group. But this is how nuts the the media doesn't know whether to scratch their watch or wind there but right now when it comes to joe biden and this administration. It's a nightmare
Senator Lindsey Graham Helped Biden Reshape the Federal Judiciary
"Hearing senator lindsey graham talk about biden's failed that ghanistan policy makes me think of last night's tucker carlson monologue. What a scathing. Takedown of senator graham pointing something out that. We haven't paid a lot attention to a lot of americans have noticed this. A lot of people are focused on so many other things live in our lives. Doing the best we can. I get it. i get it i get. It biden is appointing activist judges at a record pace. He is doing everything he hand to remake judiciary and try to correct all the trump accomplishments. And lindsey graham has gone along with all the appointees we may grab that tucker carlson monologue. It's always tough for me because on a personal level. I appreciate senator lindsey graham. I think he's right on a lot of issues. He has been came out swinging against donald trump early on but then he completely pivoted becoming one of president. Trump's closest allies. It's a little bit like the ted cruz trajectory and you could look at that one of two ways the left and the and people who hate trump despise the way ted cruz and lindsey graham pivoted on the subject of donald trump. I think more objectively speaking these senators put country ahead of their own beliefs and their own feelings about president trump. it. I think it takes a lot of guts to change course like that
CNN Suddenly Tears Into Joe Biden Over Afghanistan
"Here's tucker carlson. Let's listen to his expressed confusion over cnn. Going after joe biden over afghanistan. Something about it doesn't add up. Scene is not a news network. Cnn is a political organization. It's anchors and reporters don't decide for themselves what to say on camera. They are told what to say. They're told highly specific terms every weekday morning. On a call with their commander. Jeff sukkur there's no intellectual freelancing at cnn. Here's what i think now. It's united front a single hymnal for the entire congregation. When cnn takes a position or changes its position on something it changes as one everybody from the chirpy morning digging bats don lamont on the night shift they all say precisely what they are told to say ever watched the channel. And now they're sending something very very different. Consider this person. This is a former member of the morning zoo crew on a contemporary hit station yakima washington on a good day. She's probably operating with a functional iq of about eighty five. So it's fair to say she is not coming up with her own material and yet here. She is visibly outraged on the air. Telling you what an incompetent bad person joe biden this. The rapid fall of afghanistan stunning the biden administration and this nation quite frankly and many of the promises predictions and the words of the president and his white house are coming back to haunt them. What is going on here. These are literally. The people who got. Joe biden elected president. He would not be president without these people in now just seven months into his administration. They are telling you that he has failed personally. It does not make sense. He's right he's totally right. Because cnn was the biggest joe biden cheerleader in america and now the got him were stuck with him and they're turning on him over. Afghanistan doesn't make any sense.
The National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan Is a Total Moron
"One of the most unimpressive people ever to serve in. Government is a man by the name of jake sullivan. He thinks he's very smart because he's a rhode scholar and it's tucker carlson said on his show yesterday. We really can't find out what he's ever done that is meaningful except to go to school and he was pressed by i think. Savannah guthrie from nbc. Might not be here might have been somebody else asking. How did you guys screw this up. So terribly and he uses these kind of things. He's being very clever by using these long words by saying oh well yes we You're trying to circumvent the imminent threat by trying to use aerial reconnaissance. And by the ten second you realize this guy's a moron. This is the guy i forget the fact that they're corrupt and they actually want to preside over a completely different nation. Being ushered in the united states of america. Just not very smart. And they're so prideful and cocky. So jake sullivan is i think. He's the national security advisor. He's a total wimp. And the fact that jake sullivan is giving advice on her. United states military is rather horrifying.
Republicans Compare Viktor Orban to Communists
"Tucker. Carlson went to hungary last week. As many of you know. He was the speaker on saturday at a conference of young conservatives from all over europe especially eastern europe in depeche and i was the speaker of the day before and he has been an eye as well but he much more as attacked because he had viktor orban's on his program. There are bond is the head of of hungary so this is what they say. Give you an idea of the low level of the never-trumper world so these putative republicans condemned us for going. We are no different than leftists. Who went to communist countries. I know virtually all of these people. And i must tell you. My disappointment in moral idiocy is deep. You have no idea how. Well i know. Some of them and one for forty years to compare or monto communism. You can hate her. Bundle your life or are there Torture chambers and hungary like they weren't hungary and communism the that many people the communist killed in eastern europe is is he murdering people in in hungary. How about a basic thing like this. There was no way you could travel. Outside of the communist bloc when eastern europe was communist a hungarian has the freedom to travel anywhere in the world. The comparison of victor oregon to communists is another example of people trivializing communist evil. It's like comparing people to nazis. All you do is trivial is nazi evil.
"p j tucker" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"Yeah, I mean, he deserves mentioned Quin Snyder was coach of the Western Conference. Coach of the months. Which sister? Yeah. Doc Rivers was Eastern Conference coach of the months and then saying month and includes December and January, right which I don't get that. Why did whatever I guess to symbol is a little um, so I'm thinking rolls, right? And then do that do that every year to There's always the October November, right? And then the other guy who I think absolutely deserves mentioned in that group is as J. B. Bickerstaff when you look at how competitive the Cavaliers have been, Um, you know when hey took over a team that was in complete disarray they were competitive than last season. They were 30th in defense the last two years and I don't know where they are at this moment, but the start of the week. I think they were eight or nine years up their seventh right now, and you're seeing development in some of the young players there without Kevin Love there. No still write. That probably helps her okay. But still they're 10 and 11 without the guy who makes the most money on the team. That's just my my short list of guys I think are deserving Coach their candidates. Victor, you know, he And I like that, Dr. Nothing bad to say about him. But, you know, he's saying all the teams all the teams quit on me. You know, he's kind of, you know. Yeah, they Indiana thing wasn't you know whatever. Like it was. Very, very strange situation that the thunder treatment for Paul George, I don't think that's an insult. Yeah, you know, so the magic traded in for surgery, Baka because they don't wanna Pam and I wasn't that that's a fair point. You could say they it was a disaster was a disaster trade all around for Orlando, and they traded surged within a year up to Toronto for Terrence Ross. And I think the first round pick so, um That's a fair point. But Bon temps do you think Houston can maintain this? And, you know, do you think that they hold on to these guys now that they were thinking about trading because they might have something I would assume McMahon would probably have a better sense of this and me, But I would assume it wouldn't change their thinking between now and the deadline. I think they were probably gonna wait anyway to do something, but I suspect if they could get a good deal for Victor of the Depot, or P. J. Tucker or any of these other guys, I think they would still Do something by the deadline, But, yeah, look, I mean, if they don't treat those guys, I mean, they have a decent team like you're going to go through the roster like John Wall when you know health is an issue When John Wells healthy, he's a solid point guard Victor Oladipo's it Good to guard Christian would have been a good center Peter Tucker is solid, right, Dana houses a solid defensive wing Christian would has been damn good, You know, he he's He's been really good like they have they have. They have a decent amount of talent and like They had to have depth of heaven as sterling brown the water off the bench, both those guys I played well, you know, they 10. They've got 10 guys in the rotation that can play, which in a few cases the past No question. And if you look at the West, right, I would say there's you know. Five teams you look at that are definite playoff teams barring catastrophic injury and Utah, the Clippers, the Lakers, the Nuggets and the sons and then after that you've got Portland, Houston, Dallas Golden State. San Antonio, New Orleans, like Is no reason that Houston can't be in the mix of those teams. And that's like 6 to 12 in the West, especially especially when you're talking about right 10 teams. Here's what I would say about the Rockets in terms of the trade market. I still anticipate that P. J. Tucker gets moved. And that's simply because they Yes, this is fun for rockets. Yes, this is There's a refreshed vibe in the organization, and they're really enjoying being competitive and then proving people wrong right now, But it's not about this season for the Rockets is about laying a cultural foundation. But obviously when you make the moves they've made and gotten all the pics..
"p j tucker" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"Sort of really, really great job for all the For all the crap that that he had found, and even since heart has been gone, you know, Wall Mr Stretch of games. You know, all the depot. They're obviously being very careful is sitting him some Um, I would even miss some games when cousin stepped into the starting lineup. You know, he put up big numbers form and then they've just like, give her fell. Stone credit man He's found, like, you know, Jason Tate is the dude he found playing in Australia. Who, you know, He's an undrafted rookie that's been plugged in their starting lineup and produces form. Eric Gordon is playing phenomenal ball on both ends of the floor. You know, he got that extension last year, It looks like a horrible contract. He was injured in the mid season. Knee surgery was never right. Last year's this funky like, you know. Situation where he was basically watching Harden and Russ take turns. But Gordon has been, you know, playing out of his mind. And so they've got a lot of guys who feel like they've got a ton to prove. You know, that's not been the most difficult stretch of schedule that that's certainly part of it. But you know, there's just kind of a really good vibe, which obviously, is the total opposite of what it was started season for them. By the way for Coach of the year for the For the first quarter. I'm gonna go with Taylor Jenkins, who didn't have Jaren Jackson and didn't have John Moran for a big stretch, and they're nine and seven, all sort of covert shut down. Yeah. I mean, he deserves mention Quin Snyder was coach of the Western Conference. Coach of the months. Which sister? Yeah. Doc Rivers was Eastern Conference Coach of the months and then a month and includes December and January, right, which I don't get that I did Whatever I guess. December was a little um, so I'm thinking rolls, right? And then that they do that every year. They always say, October November, and then the other guy who I think absolutely deserves mentioned in that group is as J. B. Bickerstaff when you look at how competitive the Cavaliers have been, Um, you know when hey took over a team that was in complete disarray they were competitive than last season. They were 30th in defense the last two years and I don't know where they are at this moment, but the start of the week I think they were eight or nine other sub their seventh right now. And you're seeing development in some of the young players there without Kevin Love there. No, still right, Probably helpful. Okay, but still they're 10 and 11 without the The guy who makes the most money on the team, But that's just my my short list of guys I think are deserving coach their candidates. Victor, you know, he and I like that, Dr. Nothing bad to say about it. But, you know, he's saying all the teams all the teams quit on me. You know, he's kind of you know. Yeah, they Indiana thing wasn't you know whatever. Like it was. Very, very strange situation. The thunder treatment for Paul George, I don't think that's an insult. Yeah, you know, so the Magic traded him for surgery Vodka because they don't want to pay him and I was that's a fair point. You could say they it was a disaster was a disaster trade all around for Orlando, and they traded surged within a year up to Toronto for Terrence Ross. And I think the first round pick so, um That's a fair point. But Bon temps do you think Houston can maintain this? And, you know, do you think that they hold on to these guys now that they were thinking about trading because they might have something I would assume McMahon would probably have a better sense of this and me, But I would assume it wouldn't change their thinking between now and the deadline. I think they were probably gonna wait anyway to do something, but I suspect if they could get a good deal for Victor of the Depot, or P. J. Tucker or any of these other guys, I think they would still Do something by the deadline, But, yeah, look, I mean, if they don't treat those guys, I mean, they have a decent teeth whitening. You're going to go through the roster like John Wall when you know health is an issue. When John was healthy, he's a solid point guard Victor Oladipo's A good to guard Christian would has been a good center. PJ Tucker is solid, right, Dana houses a solid defensive wing Christian with has been damn good. Yeah, he know, He's really He's been really, really good like they have they have. They have a decent amount of talent and like They had to have depth. They haven't had Sterling Brown Nawab off the bench. Both those guys played well, you know, they 10. They've got 10 guys in the rotation that can play, which in a few cases, the past, no question. And if you look at the West, right, I would say there's you know, five teams you look at that are definite playoff teams barring catastrophic injury and Utah, the Clippers, the Lakers, the Nuggets and the sons. And then after that you've got Portland, Houston, Dallas Golden State. San Antonio, New Orleans, like there's no reason that Houston can't be in the mix with those teams. And that's like 6 to 12 in the West, especially especially when you're talking about right 10 teams. Here's what I would say about the Rockets in terms of the trade market. I still anticipate that P. J. Tucker gets moved. And that's simply because they yes, this is fun for the Rockets. Yes, this is you know, there's a refreshed vibe in the organization and they're really enjoying being competitive and then proving people wrong right now, But it's not about this season for the Rockets is about laying a cultural foundation. But obviously when you make the moves they've made and gotten all the pics. It's about building for the future and P. J. Tucker is not going to be part of their future. They had extension discussions. Those broke down those extension discussions happened when they were still hoping to be able to keep hard on board. Obviously, he's gone and there will be interest in P. J. Tucker from, you know, he's a guy plug and play guy for a bunch of contenders. I don't think they'll be able to squeeze a first round pick. Out of him. You know, maybe they can. Maybe it's just multiple seconds. Whatever it is, I think he's I think he's moved. And they you know, they've got some young guys in particular Tate, who I think and you know, can take a big part of that role. Um, all the depot. The kind of the sense that I get is the Rockets are really kind of in an evaluation mode on him. That's what Stone said. Yeah, and it's a mutual. Yes. Don't said it. You know, he hopes is a great marriage, but yeah, right. So, um and I think it's It's a two way evaluation process right? Because all the depot In this market is going to have options. I think we all understand that on DSA, so I think they've got a little over a month and a half left for the deadline and I, you know, buy. It's time to probably have a pretty good sense of whether this is a guy. They want to pay a bunch of money in the off season or if it's a guy. They would rather flip for another asset.

"Good old Twitter machine at C dot Harrison We got a lot to get into and today's show the Rams are actually being model Lee competitive in the game. I don't think they're going to win this football game, but they're being mildly competitive right now against the Green Bay Packers. Green Bay is up 25 to 16. Jared Goff just threw a touchdown pass 25 to 16 Green Bay over the Los Angeles Rams, waiting for the nightcap tonight between the Baltimore Ravens in the Buffalo Bills that comes up at 7 15 Central will certainly keep you locked in right here on CBS Sports Radio for everything happening in the NFL playoffs tomorrow. We've got a couple of good ones. Kansas City plays Cleveland. Cleveland is a big underdog in that game, but it's the NFL playoffs. Who knows what can happen and then the night cap. Tampa Bay, New Orleans Tampa Bay got smoked in their last matchup between those two teams. New Orleans is really got pressure at the Brady Brady probably played one of his Worst games of his NFL career. The last time these two teams met Tampa Bay got swept in the regular season, and I saw a stat this week that the team that is to winnow in the playoffs when 65% of the time So that old adage about you can't be the team three times. Teams lose three times all the time. So it seemed that is just quite frankly better than them. I think that's going to be the case in the other NFC matchup. We'll get to that. Over the course of the show. But let's keep it focused in on Houston right now as a city because Houston has had A very tumultuous last two weeks. Let's talk about James Harden first, because that's the move that actually happened as much of the Shawn Watson is huffing and puffing and very unhappy about the situation, and I can't really blame him for being unhappy. I don't think anything old simile is going to happen. He is just far too valuable of a player for you to trade him. To essentially get back your own draft picks from the Miami Dolphins. Now maybe there's another team that is willing to really Hey, furnish John Watson. But to me, the team that makes the most sense is the Dolphins. You have a quarterback? You can give them you have a top five pick, which ironically is Houston, Stop. Five pick you have your own first round pick two second round picks again. One of those picks is originally Houston's in the layer Me Tunsil trade. So to me, the Dolphins just make the most sense but of your Houston. I'm not trading to them out of principle. I'm not going to give you my quarterback for us to basically get our draft picks back. That is, don't seem like the wave to me. So let's talk about James hard in the Houston Rockets now. Houston has been a good team. The last five years or so. They've not been a great team. They had one chance to make the MBA finals there of 32 over the Golden State Warriors and Houston in Game seven. Word? Yes. Missing everything like absolutely everything in that game that to me, was there on Lee real chance to win a championship and or go to a championship. But as we talked about with Landry Who does radio in Houston, the most frustrating part of James Hardin's concerns with the organization. Was his complaints about culture. P. J. Tucker can't complain about the culture in Houston, the culture and really based on P. J. Tucker. I'm assuming the rules are a little different for P. J. Tucker, then they offer James Harden. As an organization. It is almost impossible. To doom or for one of your players slash employees than with rockets did for James Harden. At almost every step and every turn when hard and wanted something the Rockets went out to acquire, said peace and or player to make hard and happy. When he didn't like the head coach of the general manager. They got rid of him to make hard and happy. We wanted a different running mate. They go pick up Chris Paul when the Chris Paul relationship went south They've been traded Chris Paul to go pick up Russell Westbrook. That experiment worked. For one year when that in work hard and also didn't want to play with Russell Westbrook anymore, So they trade Westbrook to go get John Wall. He still wasn't happy with the scenario didn't come to work in shape has Blatantly disregarded the league's covert policies and covert rules, and now they have traded, said player I always had a lot of respect for hardened in this. Don't mind the load management. It's frustrating as a fan. I've been a victim of the load management to tell you a very quick story. That's a sidebar here Last year, I really wanted to go to New Orleans. I never been to New Orleans before. Just like a great place to go. And I missed my opportunity to see Zion Williamson because he got hurt in college. So like you know what I'll go see him in the NBA. I then bought my tickets. Very next day. Zain has a back injury not going to play, so I'm still mad, but they're playing the Clippers. You know what Quiet Leonard did in that game. You guessed it Load management. I went all the way to New Orleans. Didn't get to see Zion didn't get didn't get to see Kawai Leonard of this game that I bought my tickets for months in advance, so I, too have been victim. Unload manager but I also understand it. We're talking an 82 game schedule where the regular season is somebody who loves the MBA don't really have a whole lot of how you you know, it just doesn't really have a look doesn't have a whole lot about So I get it. Hard. It's always been a guy. He might go to Kabul. He might go to Vegas. He might go to your local strip joint but hard and always came ready to who And I lost my respect for James Harden over these last couple of weeks because you can't tell me that guy came ready to hope for the Houston Rockets. Now, maybe the Nets will get the old James Harden back, but he did not come ready to who for the Houston Rockets. He didn't come ready to fulfill his contractual obligation with the team, bro, if you don't want to play Then just say I'm not playing anymore until you guys trade me forego the cash. And then they trade you. Would have more respect for you doing that. He's clearly not in shape..

"You can follow him on Twitter at basketball talk. And self described hoops junkie Kurt. Thanks for spending some time with us this afternoon and a happy holidays as you were gone. It's going pretty good. You know it. Z always fun working at home with everybody home all the times. And normally, I'd complain about that during the holidays, but in science, some fashion but kind of gotten used to it now, because that's all we've done for, like, you know, since March, So are you holed up in like with like the milk hyper compound where you have, like 19 different screens, and you can watch every NBA games simultaneously. No, it's it's more more than like that because I can like stream a game all watching it on TV, or however, I want to do it. Because I've got a wife. I've got three daughters what I had to do. We have TVs in three different rooms just so that if I'm in one room and the daughter comes in, can I use the big TV to watch? Some horrific Netflix show that I can't stand their vampire diaries. Yeah, You gotta watch that again. So then I've got about like I keep bouncing rooms and screens until I'm just somewhere in a corner watching games. But you know what? It works, right? The end result is beautiful, eh? So I'm checking out the power rankings here. We may as well dive right in with the home team s so you've got the Warriors. At number 19 in your current power ratings, and your first line kind of sums it up for us. They've looked sort of what we expected them to be. Maybe you could elaborate on that. Where do you see the Warriors sort of fitting into the second half of the Western Conference when all is said and done. Yeah, I still think that they're a potential. I mean, it's kind of a weird line now would like to call it a playoff team. I'm not sure what to call seven and eight because they've still gotta play the plate in came but I still think that there's somewhere between six and nine, probably. Um, But look, what have we seen? The struggle could be Brooklyn who looks phenomenal. When Kevin Durant place they struggled to be, you know, they couldn't beat Milwaukee Who's an elite team? They did beat a very bad Detroit team that I don't have no idea what they're trying to do. They beat you know they beat the Bulls. I kind of think. Like I said, I kind of think that that's where they are. They're going. They can beat the bad teams. They're going to struggle against the good teams and what's when they get against those teams. Other teams in the middle of the West Portland's of the world's like where Where is all that going to shake out remains to be seen? But I don't think especially considering all the new faces and no Draymond green. I don't know This 19 ranking probably is a little low. It's also just the first weeks of the power ranking hers. I hate the first week. Alright? Of course I don't. I don't know. It's also random and I don't know. I just It's just hard to place teams because, like, Let's get Cleveland three and one. I know they're not, but they are and I've got to treat them like they're playing well, but they're not that. One of the things that you wrote in your summary of the Warriors so far is that you know James Wiseman needs a lot of court time. And that will happen with marquees Chris's injury, but his feel for the game is also lacking and we've seen that through the first four games that's to be expected were specifically Do you think that he'll make the most improvements in the coming weeks? Is it offenses that defense isn't just messing with in this warrior system? I think it's going to be defense where they needed to be dissension a lot of ways, and that's honestly the hardest part. The MBA the level of defense played in the NBA, and I know the casual fan's rolled their eyes at this, but The complexity of the NBA defense now compared to what it was 20 years ago is radical. It is a much since they've allowed his own and offenses evolved defense is have evolved with it. It's not, you know, I it's not teams are playing isolation, basketball or trying to force that, but it's much more complex and that it just takes time to get used to it. And get used to how it's played at this level. And Wiseman obviously, you know, it's like three college games, you limited experience and feel for it right now. He just needs time I hopefully it comes around on that because The athleticism and the length is just ridiculous. And there's moments of skill where you're just like holy cow. But he's just got to learn how to time out, you know? Hey, When do I go for the block? And when do I just need to be a body? And when do I need to rotate out to the corner? Because I can't have P. J. Tucker sitting out there or somebody you know, like nailing to like you. It just takes time to get used to knowing the person now knowing your your responsibility within there. So I think that I think that's going to come along faster than getting used to the flow offense that they kind of installed in in Golden State, which You know, it involves a little bit as a straight man comes back and there's a secondary playmaker. Yeah, And that was my next question, Kurt. You know, we're starting to get some idea of what this group of strangers look like as a unit right that that we haven't seen before. And the one cog we have yet to see his dream on green. There's no question they will be better with dream on on the floor..

"I mean, they gave up their draft picks. They gave up a lot to get through holiday. Well, that Alison Harden, it takes several shots better now to all right. Philly. If Philly says we'll give you Ben Simmons and whoever Tobias Harris or something Well, it would be what what the Rockets will want their Is been Simmons and picks. Okay. Bible could be a A pick on Gluck. It P. J. Tucker is probably getting traded at some point to. He would make a lot of sense that he's traded along with Harden to Philly. Daryl Morey obviously knows both players well. P. J. Tucker is a great role player on honor expiring contract so you can stand the deal that way. But yeah, that it's been Simmons and then you haggle over picks. You haggle. Whether titles in the deal. I still think Uh, that is the most likely scenario. I'm not certain that there is a consensus within the Sixers organization that they want T o have anything to do those kind of discussions, And then I look at the Miami heat and I have somebody who works there. And I just said, you know, give me the validity of that possibility. And, you know, so I guess they're exploring this. And if bam out of bio and Tyler hero would be the two assets that you might be able to get, Okay, if I'm Houston, you got my attention. Because I do have young players. I haven't all star maybe a potential All Star there and maybe I get rid of all this drama, and there's a little addition by subtraction there. But if I'm Miami Jimmy Butler had a hard time playing in Philly and seven and Minnesota because of you know these players who were immature. I mean, James Harden could be immature and wanted his way. I can't imagine Jimmy Butler putting up with the tardiness of James Harden. Well, and, you know, I do think James Harden the heat culture could be uninterested fit and, you know, maybe he adapts. Uh, you know James Harden when he gets credit, and I think there will be an understanding that his legacy Is on the line. Jimmy Butler and James Harden do have a relationship. Of course. So did James and Russell Longer route and Chris Paul's funny. Yeah, it's funny, though. The Rockets thought they were getting Jimmy brother. Not this offseason last offseason had lined up there ready to ship out compelling. Gordon, make the room hard and bothered been talking. They were ready. And then Jimmy goes from the winning side literally did not return texts and phone calls and went to Miami. Um, look, those things players get over those kind of things. But Miami I would imagine what the first thing I would say is Hell no, bam is not on the table. Absolutely not. Don't even ask again. But hero would absolutely intrigued the Rockets. Duncan Robinson would absolutely intrigued rockets. They've He'd had several vets on expiring contracts where you can make the money work there a little bit limited and picks, But there's there's absolutely ways for offer an offer to make sense to be be put together from Miami. His Tim McManus covers the MBA for ESPN. How much better are the Lakers now than they were a couple of months ago? Well, yeah, we've got to see how things fit on paper. I think there's significantly better Martin Soul to me is a is a major upgrade over what they had a center and much different player, but still because of his physicality and intelligence, Great defense player. I think a little bit of a better fit offensively just because he can space the flooring and give a decent room to work on the shrewder, you know, shrewder and Harold extruded right now wants to start. We'll see. My guess is there's some kind of smooth transition. Get him back. Coming off the bench and that shrewder Harold pick and roll coming off the bench is a ton of firepower. And look if LeBron is healthy and eighties healthy the Lakers of the favorites whether they upgraded the supporting cast or not, but they did. The most interesting team people are talking about is who Most interesting team people aren't talking about. That is a good question. I'm trying to figure out who to people aren't talking. People are talking about Phoenix. People aren't talking. I don't know that the Nuggets even though they went to the West five. I don't know if the Nuggets her Franchise that people talk about the whole lot and obviously yoke, which is a pretty all NBA candidate, Jamal Maria 23. If it's the bubble was a was breaking out for him was a springboard for him. They got another star there. Michael Porter Jr is one of the most fascinating Talents in the league. You know, we'll see if you can put it together. If he does, you know they're potentially have a third star. The other thing is if they wanted to be aggressive in the trade market, Michael Porter Jr is absolutely the kind of No, he could be a centerpiece to go get a to go get a star. I mean, look if the Nuggets called the Rockets, and they're talking Porter Jr picks and you know, like Gary Hairs Barton combo to make some salaries work. Those conversations could heat up. That's interesting. Did the Clippers improve? I think the Clippers, I think mantra is Harold leading probably needs to happen for the Clippers. From a chemistry standpoint, I think Sergio Baca comes in there and maybe fits a little bit better. With the quiet Paul George combo. There's not, you know, old clips versus you know, kind of the new regime there. Baca is me as a as a backup center or started really is a Is a heck of a player. I need to see it from the Clippers. And honestly, my biggest concern about the Clippers is Paul George and Paul George now and it definitely Paul George as that extension kicks in, and he ages. Let's be honest, Paul George, just Kind of crumbled under the pressure of being a a superstar on a team expected to contend so to me, edible out of all the guys who are all MP account of the players, he might have the most prove this season. Your honest reaction when you saw that he got that. Super that Max extension. Well, does everybody have to get that, Tim? I couldn't They say you know what? You're not worth the Max Paul. You're a B, maybe a B plus player. Why does everybody have to get the Max? I don't understand this. Well, yeah, that's a good question. And you know, why does why does superstars have to be able to determine the practice and travel schedules and flex their power with personnel news is just it is a player run..

I'm to me that's exciting. Power forward. What you got dream on and you got Paschal and you still you still smile. A G h. I don't know if he's even an NBA player. But you got him and then of small forward right now you have Wiggins And you have you brain You have based more on. You have to Scott No. Anderson, and they're talking about the two. Maybe. To me. It seems like you're overloaded at the three at the two guard without clay, you got pool and I've heard great things about pool. You know, some my warrior moles say he looked awesome in the last workout. But Damian Lee Michael Molders there and you got the kid playing in Australia and then want to make her curry and Manion at those one to me. If there's the Warriors also, they could really use a second sniper. I was thrown out. The idea may be flipping Wiggins for Buddy healed because I know he was not happy and sack. You know, I don't know that that helps you defensively. But, man, I'd sure love to see curry and healed, You know, firing away together on the same team. What do you think that concept that issue with Wigan Steel? Yeah, it's gonna be harder to get to get off that people might realize is market value throughout the league. Non existent even though he played well full games with words last season. People are really wary of his inconsistency in Minnesota, and also just that that massive contract I think his value is much greater on the warriors, and it is on any other team. Which is why I'm pretty convinced that he will least play out this season with Golden State. Um, I'll I understand what you're saying about healed and I agree with you next week. I agree with you. In terms of they could use another sniper. I do think that you break and helpful that Boyd Hey, shot 35% from three last season on a pretty Large volume on did he He sounded pretty confident today that he could be one of the best three point years. Maliki Um so I think he helped. Um, but, you know, The words just weren't gonna They were gonna get a huge difference maker Just given this this free agent market. I mean, I thought they maximized the trade exception going out and getting booed Brown short notice after the Thompson injury, but there just wasn't gonna be Home run in the free agent market outside of maybe, like a market soul who understandably went to the Lakers to chase a title. I think as soon as Clay got injured, the words chances of getting him went out the door. Connor. I thought it was pretty interesting. What Kelly you, Bray said earlier today with regard to warriors ownership, certainly being a higher level of ownership than what he's played for. So far in his career. Washington Phoenix Etcetera tell us a little bit more about that and anything else that stood out from his his room. Yeah, I think that quote was actually from a radio interview. But he was He was very candid with us as well. That everyone I've talked to his coverage. Tell you Bray absolutely loves him. Just because He says exactly what he's feeling. He's got a swagger. Shawn. Uh, there was a reporter on the Zoom today who asked About his relationship with marquees creates and and how close he is with players on the team. And Kelly very basically, cut him off and said, Hey, man, you're acting like you know me like that. You don't really know me like that, bro. Hey, don't be at himself. He actually you know who my best friends are on. It was like it was a little surprising to think you that an introductory presser type situation, but Um, it just shows like who he is. He's not afraid to say they would He feels and, um the thing that I think is exciting about who graze even though he's coming off a career season with Phoenix. He had a little bit of a reclamation project in the sense that he has spent his entire career with dysfunctional franchises. You know, Washington, Um and then and then Phoenix and we know the Warriors love. Reclamation projects from Phoenix because Phoenix has a Max of taking really good players and not getting the most out of them because they're just so dysfunctional and uber, even though he played well. Phoenix, I think was pretty unhappy with a lot of the situation there with ownership of the kind of alluded to I know there was a lot of drama with whether or not he was going to play in the bubble with yet was coming back from that. Meniscus injury and, um, I know ownership felt like he should be playing and he didn't feel comfortable playing. And so I think that's really when his relationship with management truly soured. S so he's really Ready to come back to have the winning, agrees. Like and take your game to the next level and golden State and he was asked, straight up. You do you see a future and Golden state? And he said he does he wants he wants us to be his home. Which, for a guy who's on the expiring contract, I think is exciting for lawyers spent. Hombre makes 14.4 million, but he's going to cost the Warriors and extra $68 million in luxury tax money. So the total bills 82.4 million. So if you ever questioned whether Joe Lake of wants a win Don't be. He just took on a huge huge sum to make his team nominally better. You bray was 15th in the MBA in transition points, so makes you think that they may get out and run a little bit more this year. What do you What's your guess? On the injured player exception we saw that they had applied for it. Who? That who they go after with that? A lot of people saying about Tucker P. J. Tucker do that. Could they land Tucker with that injured player exception and and what's the likelihood of that? I think Tucker would be planning a, uh it really fit for the wires are about they Bond over him for years. He's a guy who always seems to play well against the Warriors, and he very much their style flair. Um he's really strong, really physical, you know, can knock down the three. I know he he already has a good relation with dream on and several other guys on the team. S O. If they could go and get him on that That would be an absolute win. I think he's a guy who could play meaningful playoff ministry and keep in mind when you're talking about the word on who they're adding the sausage you need..

I think that will decide to Siri's Fred Vanvleet Q Tip well from three to Aditi's next three games, Toronto's going back to the Eastern Conference finals. Yeah, He could be a bit streaky, and they've got to find a way to get him off his game a little bit. But he is when he's rolling very much more dangerous team, your whore. You are spot on and they, you know, Look, they're going to defend well, but it's really gonna both these teams defend well. It's also been You don't For fans of X's and O's and Stuffing. Knick Nurse impressed Stephen. It's been fun like this is this is This is coach is really playing around. Toronto throw So many defense is actually every game. I mean, the last game, they rolled out zone. Manda, Man boxing, one flying going to watch others just They keep switching it up. So you never know what you're going to see. And it just it has kept Boston on its back foot a lot. Speaking of exes, and Oh's just specifically in this round the pressure around we had the play in and they were scored in the high one twenties 1 30 seemed fight night in night out. First round of the playoffs. Still pretty good, high level scoring this round. Yeah, nobody's getting up into the one twenties anymore. Eyes it. Just a ratcheting up of defensive intensity is that the coach is figuring out how to play better defense is Possible. Do you agree that the scoring has come down? I'm pretty Hugh are with my numbers. I didn't sit down and break it down in a game by game basis. But if I'm right that scoring has come down. Why do you think that is You say I have not run the numbers, but it does feel like it's come down, and I think it's I think you're down to eight teams. Um Outside of Denver. They all play good defense. Denver actually did for a stretch their last camp like you don't get this far if you can't get some stops, and so I think that you're just running into Better. Better not even just better overall defensive teams, but teams that can roll out better individuals offenders and make it difficult on the other team stars and so we're just starting to see this is the point the playoffs where Aim and Chris Middleton. It better step up. Even if you wanna get I was like, and he did today. But your second guy, your third guy has got to start making plays and that always just You still get a drop in scoring with that? All right? We're a minute into this Laker game. Second period tonight in a lake of liberty jumped out to a 17 point lead. I think it was their first possession. Anthony Davis attempted at three and I was rolling my eyes as I was getting ready to introduce you here on the show. And since then he has made some nice post up moves. Gotten the ball to the hole evil. He's got it on a perimeter. He is Dunmore driving, then ah, settling for long distance jump yachts. After watching Game one. It seemed rather obvious to me that that was what had to happen here in Game two, although I did know it after the first couple of possessions Ah, just good coaching by Frank Vogel knowing they're going small P. J. Tucker is a tough guy, but he is only 6 ft. Five and you're seven point get within 8 ft of the basket and score over this guy. Yeah, but you've got to do it on the move a little bit. It's not so simple as just posting them lot because P. J. Tucker is a bull man Guy's strong James Harden. You can't just move him out of the post and you go on down through that through that team. They're going on all these guys. There. Strong guys. It's tougher to just post them up in a traditional sense. You think you really need to get guys Attacking and moving towards the basket. But that was always the key. Look, The Lakers have got to get points in the paint to be successful. They've got they've got a breakdown penetration, and then they've got to stop the Rockets penetration. The Rockets And it looks like a lay up line last game and that just can you Then it hasn't happened here in the first quarter tonight. Clippers got handled pretty well by Denver in Game one to make that and gave to to make that Siri's 11 and I don't remember Kawai having as off a overall offensive night someone was shooting in. Some was I didn't protect the basketball and they aggressively doubled and took it off him. What happened? A quiet game number two. Do you give credit to the Denver defense? Give some credit to Denver like I like they've got some long They got him. Reporter. Two years long, God defenders and stuff, But I got a feeling was just a flushable night for the you know, Clippers. I think that they're better than that. They might be one of those teams..

"They're going to go out there and, of course, trying to take advantage of whatever mismatches they confined on there, and I thought the Lakers did not adjust to that. The way I expected. I was really expecting him to play a completely different game. They didn't do it, and they got burnt in game one will find out if they make those adjustments for Game two and kind of get too serious back under control. But if not, you know they're going to face the same thing that everybody else down here has There's no home court advantage is no home crowd to care. You know emotionally you're gonna have to play. You have to get out there on the court, with everything flattened out. Everything exposed. And show us if you're the better team and you're gonna get tested, and if you don't pass, those tests would be packing up to leave in the bubble. Oh, no, that's exactly what we've seen in this. I was really impressed with P. J. Tucker yesterday to me. The Lakers really struggled with those kind of scrappy guys. I think I like Patrick Beverley and how he's sort of that Disruptor. I thought that's what P. J. Tucker was yesterday. I thought he was fantastic against 80. No, he was and he went in knowing that he's got a history of playing those guys. I think we also need Thio. Remember about the bubble is if it's done nothing that stripped down all the outside stuff, all of the creature comforts of home. All of things you might be used to. This is just pure basketball tournament. It's nothing but players in a condensed environment. They're watching every game that they're not playing in no secrets. Somebody's gonna have a tactical advantage going into a game. You know what to expect. And it's a matter of can you execute about Houston played harder on defense. But they will more assignment driven about their more detail oriented and that will burn you down here. I I've been watching these games from the start, and I'm The thing I'm appreciate more more. It takes an immense amount of stamina and discipline to play the game. A certain way to be is mindful that you have to be on both in the floor to win in this environment if you're not up to the task. You will be, you know, bounce out of here. I don't know. It doesn't matter what you eat it. It doesn't matter what your regular season profile is.

"Have to tell you something, Joe. I hear NBA players and coaches say something I know way have to talk to him after games. They have to say something, but sometimes they say things and I go. What does that even mean? So, he says, the Rockets have a lot of speed and you can't get used to that on film, and you've got to get you kind of play against. He acts like he's never seen the Rockets he's played against the Rockets. 20 times in the last few years. Is that just an excuse? I'm gonna answer my question. Yes, it is an excuse. You know, the speed that feels like to me. You lost and you're just trying to think of something to say. There's a way to measure this. It's called the pace Metric pace is essentially the average of how many possessions a team has per game. The pace metric for last night's game between the Lakers and the Rockets was 97.7. 97.7 the Lakers pace during the regular season was 101.2. So there were less possessions in last night's game than the Lakers average over the course of the regular season. Houston's fast but they weren't playing at some astronomical, breakneck speed that the Lakers air completely unaccustomed to. So I think this is LeBron just saying what needs to be said after yet another disappointing game one performance Meyer and get this LeBron has now lost Game one in six of his last seven playoff series, six of his last seven. We saw it against Portland, and everyone thought the House of cards was coming down. And then the Lakers went out 14 straight by an average of 15 points per game for the Lakers. Actually in trouble here, or eyes, it's going to be just like what we saw in the Portland Siri's marries. He's throwing out the pace metric. I hope you've got a stat ready for him back. Strong pace measuring Well, I'll say that since seating in the plans and get in 1984, the Lakers are the 15 to lose Game one of their 1st and 2nd round Siri's in the MBA playoffs. Both of the previous three teams did not win a championship. So who knows what it all means? But I think like any time a quarterback in NFL game is talking about the speed like you know what happened, the allotted your team fall apart. He's basically throwing his safeties and quarterbacks under the bus. This is LeBron San Kyle Kuzma doing enough. This is LeBron saying, Ron doing doing enough. This is his way of saying I can handle it. But I don't know if these guys can and that to me is the LeBron sort of passive aggressive way. That he handles some of these moments, no problems, and Anthony Davis, who looks great, by the way, like we're not talking a lot about Anthony Davis in these playoffs, but he has been amazing LeBron James obviously doing what he does normally, although he didn't show up in the fourth quarter. LeBron is saying, We need help Matt. Somebody else is going to have to step up in order for us to corral a Houston team. That mind you is the best defensive team in the playoffs right now. A Houston team. Did you ever think you would say that No one ever used in is the best defensive team, but they have been I've been great. They've been great. I mean, you have James Harden blocking shots to clinch a Siri's at the end of the day. Houston looks really good with this small ball line of they have, and the Lakers got a lot to figure out, man. Here's the thing. I don't think you can win a championship unless you have three dudes who Khun bring it. And the good thing for the Lakers is there dudes one and two are so good that the third guy doesn't have to even be that great. He just needs to be kind of okay, good, but he's got to be something. And the problem is, they just don't have it. And they try to sell it with Kuzma. I got to see it. I've heard about it even when it was, you know, going back a couple of years. I got to see it and the rest of the guys. I mean, when there are nights when they're looking at Alex Caruso and going you're going to be the third guy tonight. That's a problem for me so but with all that, said Joe And I'm a LeBron fan. I'm like towards the top of LeBron ISMs. What It's always an excuse always. It's always an excuse. It's never him and when you're down to well, I wasn't used to the speed. When you've been playing for 17 years, I just have a hard time with that. I agree with your point that it takes a third starter win a championship because that's the era of N ba basketball that we're living in right now. But this isn't the finals. This isn't even the conference finals. You need that third star against the Los Angeles Clippers, who are the best team in basketball. You don't need that third star against the Rockets. The Rockets have two guys. What do they have outside of the two guys? If it's LeBron and 80 versus Russ in James Harden the chips fall after that they fall after that. There's not some sort of huge advantage. There's something there's a big difference between. I mean you don't like Gordon P. J. Tucker. Is it that big? They've Myron, help green. You don't think they want to have those guys? I mean, they want I mean, air, Gorgeous man. That dude's good. I mean, having a guy like that has proved himself in a lot of moments. P. J. Tucker I would say this and this is game down ESPN radio Matt Jones for Myanmar Metcalf here talking about the NBA playoffs. This interesting thing to me in Miami, I think is done done this to everybody said what they couldn't do. Here's Miami going We've been comfortable in this. Yeah, We don't have a 6 Ft 11 Center. Yeah, We got a bunch of guys from D three schools and, you know, we got Tyler here on these guys who maybe don't look like they could set up a playoff contender. But we know exactly who we are. And I think Houston has that identity to we could talk about the small ball in 6 ft. Five P. J. Tucker, who by the way Weighs £250 and as a 7 ft wingspan, But Houston is very comfortable and what it is both his limitations and strength..

"Rockets lead the thunder 10 for 102 with 1.2 seconds left and the thunder have the basketball. Here's what happened in the past few seconds just to get you caught up on it. So P. J. Tucker makes a floater to give the rockets of 10310 to lead Now there's many other things that happened, but there's no scoring again until we get to the latest part of the fourth quarter with a couple of seconds left, so basically it boils down to this. The Rockets. Have the ball Ah or the thunder have the ball down, one with time running down and Dort who we talked about him a few minutes ago, getting all kinds of wrong. He's having a great game. Ah, right now is wide open for a three that could potentially win the game. The past comes cross court to Dort and James Harden, who had zero energy left at all comes flying out from the key and he leaps in the air to the side, making the smart place. Why don't come down right on top of somebody makes a smart leaps up and blocks door. It's three straight up into the air. All right. So now you Oh, my goodness. Look at this place. Another second comes off the clock as the ball comes down, and it comes back down and Dort catches it, so doors got it. There's still two seconds left, and there's nobody on them because you know, Hardin has lost his balance and he's on the other side of him. He's got the ball. He can turn and take another three. He could turn to take a shot. But what does he do? He turns away from the basket and tries to throw the ball off of James Harden. So it goes out of bounds. I don't understand that I don't That is, I really I mean, I mean, I think I've seen it all. You've seen that play before. When a guy is running, going out of bounds, trying to save the ball, and he turns in one fell swoop and tries to fired into it bounces off a guy's knee and goes out of bounds to all time. But you know you're 30 ft, away from the hoop. You have the ball, turn around and take a shot. Instead, I'm going to continue to face away from the hoop and try to throw the ball out of bounds off of James Brighton. It doesn't or leaps like a superhero like he like You remember that scene in the first Harry Potter film? When you know the he's got all his money, and he buys frogs and it jumps and Ah, it's too bad. He's got one jumping him that it was James Harden. He had one jump left in him. And he went Peter La Fleur or that Harry Potter and avoided Dodgeball. Ah, instead door. It's out of bounds. So game on right. So, so Dort throws the tried to throw it off of James Harden and Harden. The ball goes Julie's Using the last of his energy resources, Harden leaps out of bounds and leaps out of the way the ball goes out of bounds. There is a long Look at the replay to make sure that it go off. James Harden. How much time was left? They put two seconds back on the clock. Robert Covington is fouled right away. He makes the first He misses the second. The thunder Call Time out, and right now there is 1.1 seconds left the thunder have the basketball and they trail 1042102. I have seen it all my Carmen. I really I mean, I look at place and I go. Okay. So you have the the the Blazers last night, tried another blazers the Nuggets last night going for a lay up in the final seconds and put losing back on the table. And they almost lose when calmly just misses the three and then you have door trying to throw them all off its part and out of bounds. What are you doing? I don't understand where it would. What world That says This is the play. I need to make right here now. Sometimes if the plate is doing to call a time out, Do I need to try to find somebody else for a shot? When you take the shot myself? All these things I could understand, but turning around and tried to throw the ball. You have control of the ball. You're not going out of bounds. You have control the ball and you try to throw it off a James Harden. I don't I don't understand. 2020 Well in that in this final minute. We've got chaos as well. They go to a review. Ah, And after all of this, that he actually had a foul shot that was just missed. S o just curiosity and confusion reigns. It's It's amazing. There's just been a foul on James Harden away from the ball. Gallinari missed the free throw. So now the Rockets still lead 10 for 102. This is just insanity. Now. This is just absolute insanity. What? What We're seeing in the N B. A places like we go to the bubble and we decided, you know what doesn't matter. Doesn't matter that I don't care what we're just gonna do all kinds of crazy ass things. I don't I don't get it. I just sit here saying, Hey, it's 2020 s O.

They've been quarantined and we haven't. We haven't talked about them a lot. I got to imagine it's been held for them to. So here it is. This is their night to shine D for all the wrong reasons. This is what passes for NBA basketball in the bubble. And you thought Game one of tonight with the bucks in the heat with all the bad officiating at the end all there. That's what we talked about forever. No, no, no. This is what we got going on right now. Rockets that Yeah, that was so two hours ago. That was so two hours ago, man. Now it's what's going on in front of us right now. Its rockets and the thunder as one of these teams tries to get through. To the second round, and it's over war or Ah, it has just ended. Ah, the thunder. Turn it over. P. J. Tucker with a steel and the Rockets win it 1042102 they escape will have much more on both of these games coming up in a few minutes, But oh, as happy as I am. That the Rockets one could remember. I picked the Rockets ago. Your rockets as happy as I feared distancing yourself now, by the way, you know? Yeah, this is this is completely Where are you now?

He's not going to be able to make it in the N B. A. He's not. He's not big enough as a center and, you know, he ended up playing in Europe for four or five years.

Yeah, You know, it's interesting and talking to the players about kind of life in there, one of the things that several of them had mentioned to me and I heard this from other officials said. There's so much time in their hotel rooms outside of schedule, basketball activities or Covic test things of that nature. They are They're spending a lot of time in their hotel room. One player told me upwards of 12 hours a day, and so You know, they could have called with friends and family zoom sessions and things like that. But, you know, late at night, being able to gather in the players lounge and you know, share a glass of wine over him with respect to proper distance with somebody and have actual human interaction and conversation, is it Providing the kind of escape that I think you know many one, you know, on a restricted campus for a state it's going, you know, for some people be upwards of or around 3.5 months, so it In terms of mental health is playing quite a role there.

I talkto CJ McCollum, who told me that he hadn't ordered one yet, so he's essentially just keeping the air conditioner on blast. In his hotel room to keep it around, like, 60 or maybe a little bit below and keeping it dark. So you know again, maintaining integrity of the wind blows. The wind. Fridges are definitely coming in and something else. I would stay two. Players are ordering shipments. You know, at various points, so it's not as if they're all just ordering. You know, a huge amount of wine. It's going to last them for the the length of the possible They're kind of spacing it out. Speak. How hes something is simple as a glass of wine, Maybe a bottle of wine a night off for maybe a couple. How has that been able to contribute to Ah, The really the bonding camaraderie experience for these players. Yeah, it's It's played a big role in before this ever you know this bubble ever happened to general manager opposed to the use of saying Cause we were talking about the length of time that people were going to be there. The fact that it's going to be a restricted campus. You know, far from friends and family. All of that thing. I don't think we know how mentally anybody is going to be able to kind of adapt to it and the comfort and normalcy wherever we could find it wherever players or staff appointed I was going to be a huge role and so to be able to do that at night, you know to be ableto have just human interaction and conversation is a key part of it and wine. You know, players of our team dinners are a big part of the culture. You know, wine kind of bringing people to the table on helping Dr conversation. All that kind of naturally fits into obviously where there's some pretty important needs for people If it's being away from friends or family or loved ones or What have you or just days turned into weeks, and it's kind of ground Hog day getting the task alone facility. I'm gonna do this, and that's what not, it provides a little bit of Ah, break.

"Who came over In the 14 trade that said Clint Capela out to Atlanta and P. J. Tucker at 65 in the middle for the Dallas Mavericks, Steph Curry and Luca don check up front. It'll be Tim Hardaway, senior Dorian Finney Smith and Kristaps Porzingis in the middle of our officials Tonight, Mark Davis, Rodney Mark and Mark Lindsay Houston in the red uniforms Dallas in blue uniforms today. Tim Hardaway Jr. But I say, See, Yeah, yeah. Yeah, I played who I play with senior tip off, and it's controlled by the Mavericks and Seth Curry brother. Who is one of about outstanding three point shooters in the N B, A. And Houston coming out aggressively. Defensively is Lucas Dodge. It pushed all the way to half court as the shot clock dips under 10. Now they get it to KP, who bobbled it momentarily corrals. It shoots and knocked down a foul on jumper, seven foot three. There's no way on that rocket roster that's going to get away his jump shot. That's sure they're going to play Poor Zynga's and Marjanovic together tonight, that fun Here's Russell Westbrook passing it from the baseline outside the house filming. The three point jumper. You see a lot of threes attempted tonight as Dawn brings it up the other way and sports in just got knocked down in the middle of the lane by P. J. Tucker will pick up the personal foul off the ball. That will be a number one smart play by posing. He's got this size so early in transition run right to the rim. And if you get Tucker on your back, it's all she wrote. If you could find the basketball Tucker how to just pull them down, two stops to countries will inbound the basketball. Luca, the only 28 8 and eight man in the N B. A second year from Slovenia will nifty dribble out for the mid post Now throws it up off the glass misted. He wanted a foul was looking for the contact call and didn't get it. Maybe we get the shot will standing to the left wing three pointer up and that is missed by the Rockets. Missed.

This is Seth Kari, Driving hard from behind Ball lost in a foul is called James Harden is arguing that time with the lead official Mark Davis, saying he got all ball and that will be first foul on heart. How about Seth Curry? Azi emerged here this season. We have a 39 point games at Miami. He did earlier this year in nine threes in that game writers eight of 13 and 15 for the ball game. A little bit to start. His career was in Dallas before had left and now has returned and he's really making a name for himself. He can shoot the basketball flat out last four games before we got started. He was really smoking is averaging.

"The Rockets Russell. Back the corner P. J. Tucker one point six left to play eagles trying to get it in having trouble by Donovan it's tough. Gd credible work there including PJ Tucker's three in the corner which looked to be the game on the call. There are pretty damn confident about it but Bogdonovich who was having a brutal mate too. That's the thing it wasn't one of those games. Where he's like he'd already hit five or six threes. He was at that point. One six from the floor and he was surprised he was back in the game. If I remember correctly and he just hits like this basically a thirty footer. Twenty nine footer. With two rockets in Hardin and Tucker I mean they are coats all right all over draped on him their blankets their shawls all over him and he somehow gets that thing to give the jazz one. Fourteen thirteen win. If you're looking for big shots made in your clutch time for a game to really count. This is the one because like we said bogey obviously is the game winner. Tucker obviously hits the presume game winner and not too much further before that Robert Covington hits his first big shot rock like he'd played another game before that but he had a big three from the wing where he's wide open you're thinking wow they're looking good no way. They're going to blow this but boy on. Just chuck it up. It's a tough shot and it's all net but I don't think the jazz get there. If not for Jordan Clarkson who was incredible in this game he he. He's really thirty points. Mitchell went for twenty four and six assists. He was good down the stretch as well. Maybe that's why Bogdanovich was thinking. He wouldn't be back in the game because those two were kind of taken every shop for the jazz and it was working out. But Yeah Jordan Clarkson Kinda help save the jazz this season there in the middle of it and this was a fun one to watch back because it's all makes it feels like yeah and that's exactly why I wanted to put this one. The this Bogdanovich game winner over the the one I mentioned an honorable mentions against the bucks because the rockets there did catch fire down the stretch like they make this game And you said the Covington shot the Tucker shot all that and then look that shot second spectrum data calculated the percentage the probability of that shot going in considering two guys are right on 'em and maybe foul him even twelve point six percent probability. I almost thought was high. Seems like he is like flicking it up two guys right there but he has an for hitting these things despite having a rough night and this one's a so there you go bogdonovich this and look. I think this one is helped to by the fact that there's a bit of a rival between these two teams. The jazz had been knocked out eliminated by the rockets last year playoff series. So there's something there to these are two teams that could be in the playoffs if we ever get the playoffs again Later this year always a possibility. So a big big win there for the jazz and just an awesome awesome game winner. Mind Boggling especially love that the rockets broadcast is thinking? It's over with J. Tucker definitely you don't want to say that that's the Salami and cheese on the source could pull it out there all right at number six November twenty third two thousand nine hundred ninety. Trae Zach Levine. Leads a miraculous bulls comeback in Charlotte need a shot? Lisa points quickly Sodom. Thirty two cents here. Bits Stopping Stacey King telling you to stop it. Wow this one is also mind boggling to go back and watch it's what you said previously like. How do they still win this game? Because the Bulls trailed by eight with twenty two point eight seconds to go in regulation down eight. You know less than a one possession really to go. They managed to go on that eight to two run. Capped off by the near Buzzer beating. Game winning three. By Zach Levine. There was a little bit of time left. But this is the F- You Boylan game from Zakho. Right because Levine finished with a career. High Forty nine points. He hit a career high thirteen threes thirteen three D. At twenty seven in the fourth quarter which is like a few short of Michael Jordan Franchise. Record so okay. That's pretty amazing. But this was like twenty four hours after Boylan had benched. Zach Levine in the first quarter. I think it was against the heat. Because of lackadaisical three three just defensive mistakes if I'm not mistaken and this is honestly watching this again. This is AC Levin like saying Futa Boylan it's like he just hits every three especially down the stretch when they have no right of winning this game and its shots that you don't even think he's going to be getting up because there's a. There's one where he pump fakes. The ball comes out of his hands. He still grabs the ball puts it up and knocks down to three the game winning three. He gets the steal almost underneath the basket. It takes about three steps out to get to the three point line and drains it. Yeah I remember where I was. When this game happened at the fortress watching hawks versus raptors looking up at the scoreboard. Saying oh my goodness the balls are going to lose again. They'RE GONNA lose to the Hornets again. They're not gonNA make the playoffs. This is unbelievable. And then what what? They actually pull out a win here pulling out the highlights and exactly what happened crazy. I was GonNa say where we not passing around a phone here. Definitely look at this out of they. Win Zach Levine hit. What do you mean? It's now him and curry with thirteen in a game and then clay has fourteen. He's on that list. Yeah he's on that list and I swear I mean if you watch closely you can see shooting daggers. At boiling every time he hits he must hate. That guy must see him every day and be like you were at the reason. I'm not in the All star. Game must despise it so unbelievable bulls comeback. They had no right to win this one again. And it's mainly because Zach Levine. Not only does he get the steel and the one that is the buzzer beater for all for all intents purpose but he has some that like he brings it down one time and they just pulls up from like what feels like thirty feet rail the couple guys on splashes at home it it is fun to watch and CETERA. Getting that big three in there too. I know the white makes a couple of tax around one gets a key layup. There late that bulls comeback versus the Hornets number. Six on our list. All right we still have half realistic. We've got to get to the top five but let's take a quick break to show love.
