"You say big shot I save all jobs I like for young with an incredible rally after being as you would respect he lives up to its name I'd be a little bit more of as that warning you when yours are safe Michael Michael Durrance so we had the juniors just dancing his you know what off right now just our movements chair dancing I mean we've all seen the Carrabassett remixes yeah I'll be right in the south hello yes so we saw that over the weekend I'm sure we also saw the game of course being played over the weekend and it was pretty cool because the way we do the ESPN did it you have former and current players and NBA and W. N. B. right of players all involved and as it turns out in the final four you have current players former players in WNBA players all advancing to the final four which is pretty cool that all plays out Thursday night on ESPN so for more on the idea of course and what we thought and how it all came together let's talk to the guy who was there call you force all matters around mark Jones mark thanks for being with us hope you and yours are safe wherever you are well what did you think of this entire experiment as usual to watch it unfold you know what it's it's funny to if the guy's personal thanks for having me I appreciate y'all it was amazing to see how this project all came together and you know kudos first of all to all of our technical people you know and then Tim Corrigan are according to producer of NBA at ESPN and you know Thomas conveyor Phil dean include car producers to be able to see this project come together guys from day one to actually getting it there yesterday really is phenomenal and and you know I don't want to get into patting us on the back too much but it really took a lot in terms of all the moving parts and some of the technology involved in working in this imperfect world that were working in now with social distancing and some of the variables that we were limited to and having said that you know it was really great to to get into the homes and get some of the access to these players that we had an axe access to in the first round that we saw yesterday in the fourth quarter final games and watching you know prince Pierre Paul Pierce's young son work the camera for a man seeing some of the creativity of popular seven to set up his I. pad on a ladder so we could get the right angle of things and to have to Micah Catchings young nephew work one of the phones to get that second camera perspective so that we can see the different angles of her shots was was truly amazing from the seat that I was in my own office slash family room and and to see the shots go in to see them compete to film think on their feet about shots I think OB ultimately when you look at you know Mike Connolly working from an indoor gym he had a little bit of an advantage over someone like to Micah who was trying to shoot jumpers but you guys have been in Indianapolis at this time of the year the winds sweeping across the plains is is is tough to go against when it comes to making shots yeah Mike Conley junior the only one with the indoor facility could have a serious advantage in the semis the four losers here Paul Pierce Chris Paul to make a Catchings and trade young and all the hoops you said to jump through to get all this done couldn't Trae young find a regulation basket the basket that he was using tell us about that Mike it from my angle I'm not line up I was like charge you look like it was eight feet you know despite a goal from the side of the driveway I'm like man that doesn't look like a fifteen foot foul shot from straight away looks like an eight foot shot on and what room but you know he he he swears to us that it was legit so we just had to take his word for it we didn't take out tape measures or anything like that when it came to measuring the heights of the room but you know the the surprising thing about trading was you know we expected that he would take some of these thirty five foot bombs that he's used to doing and taking in nobody in the NBA has made more frequent longer jumpers that he has so far statistically and he kept going to the free throw line offense shots in the Jhansi caught up in a real demand and ultimately won their first round game so mark we've got the semi finals in the championship they're both gonna be coming up on E. S. P. and we got through that initial wave as you mentioned some surprise there with disappointing efforts like Trae young's going forward as you see this right now who we're looking at is the favorite who's emerged through the first round of this in your eyes that really looks like they're in the driver's seat well you know what one of the big surprises for me and it really shouldn't be a big surprise because Allie Quigley is one of the best shooters not just women shooters on the planet shooters period on the planet surprising Chris Paul because Chris Paul is so competitive that was a great game I would have said Chris Paul initially but after seeing what Zach Levine was doing okay the rule says no dunking I get it Zach Levine is like jumping up on one side of the backboard tapping it tapping the glass and coming up on the other side of the backboard and making reverse layups I'm like OK somebody they're gonna pull a hamstring pop then or do somebody trying to duplicate his athleticism or at worst just get H. O. R. C. lose so you know exactly being really I think came out impressively in the first round and you're looking for looking down the road it's going to be tough to beat him I would think mark Jones with us you did a great job on the horse competition over the weekend again all of the semi finals and finals Thursday night on ESPN and of course mark were were jonesing for this because there is no N. B. A. at this point and then the Brian Windhorst a report came out over the weekend that when if there could be a potential resumption of the season in the playoffs we're talking about maybe a twenty five day warm up which would be eleven days of sort of conditioning using social distancing before you can talk about going through some sort of training camp what do you think about that being a time frame to get people back and ready to be playing the game if we are allowed to do that you know I I agree with that I I know it sounds exorbitant guys but you know NBA basketball on a night tonight back to back base this is something that you know it's a level that these guys achieve and trying to maintain that is a lot more difficult than I think the average Joe public realizes like lebron said early in this and I've spoken to athletic trainers across the league you know they're giving guys workouts to do every day and monitoring them even watching them in real time on zoom it doesn't replicate holy the up and down explosiveness dynamic nature of what they have to do so the last thing that you want is for guys to come back and not be ready enough and suffer injury in the wake of that and I can remember the lockout season when guys are coming back and we were playing four games in five nights at times and three and four on a regular basis it was almost perilous and I'm shocked at the what more injuries that came out of that in that fifty game season but the this is a situation kind of similar to that and I I applaud the the league and the teams were looking at that kind of big picture approach I think it'll work I think that's the best case scenario under what we're dealing with certainly hope that's the case and certainly hope quite frankly we actually get to an active because that would mean we've been given the okay market a lot of fun a lot don't have basketball hoops that's that's right like we saw the horse competition those guys were fortunate that basketball hoops at their homes a lot of guys live in condominiums and apartments and don't have access to the basketball to actually shoot so that's another area of catch up that a lot of guys going at the plate no you're exactly right Johnson to the composer I don't know I don't have any place I can work on this so yeah we'll see what happens with that and we'll see what happens in the semi finals and finals on Thursday night market was a lot of fun thanks for navigating us through it over the weekend and we look forward to seeing what happens on Thursday night thanks pal thanks mark stay safe guys Mike Mike great thanks thank you and god any time two quick questions number one is our actual betting on this is the other lines of Vegas on this I need to know number one I don't and then there is by the way of the NBA horse betting odds right here in Vegas Trae young was the favorite plus two hundred all her money was trailer for young Chris Paul Zach Levine Mike Conley junior Paul Pierce Chauncey Billups alley quickly to meet catching sounds like Allie Quigley manages so if you want long odds on that one what is she plus I plus eleven hundred welds but here's what's interesting two of the bottom three are into the final four kids with Chauncey Billups is also a plus nine on it if you're gonna ask me who has the who has the advantage this is again set for a certain time I'm looking at my college junior he's the only one that indoor court we don't know what the weather's going to be for those other ones when this is scheduled to go those are the odds as of April twelfth for bravado so it's gonna be a junior see how any of any of that might adjust in real time but you're right I see what weather is the weather or not only is the only one absolutely listen if you can get a ten bet parlay on Ukrainian table tennis you can I of course because it a bunch of money doing that a ten ten match partly on Ukrainian ping pong what a wonderful time to be alive coming.
