"So I would say early to mid November is what we're looking at for wiseman three back. But a couple big rotation players for the warriors and we'll see where they go without those guys, but clearly not going to have you either one of them to open the season. Right. And obviously they kicked things off against the Lakers on opening night. The James weissman thing actually is interesting because the warriors are one of the teams right now that we're looking at as, okay, if we were to make tears, they're not the top tier in the west, but they've got the ability to jump into that top tier because they've got the trade assets to potentially do. So maybe they're a name that even gets into the mix here with Ben Simmons. We'll see what happens. But James weisman getting back out on the floor and proving that he's healthy and can be effective, that's not going to hurt his trade value at all. So I know that's something they're going to be looking forward to. So if he's able to come back and be effective, it might not mean that he stays with the warriors if the opportunity presents itself for them to flip some of these young guys and maybe wiseman is included, they may be able to go land a win now piece that pushes them up towards the upper Echelon of the Western Conference. Yeah, and if you're a fantasy basketball player with less than a month to go before drafts, I get heated up here. Keep an eye on Jordan Poole, probably will play even more. I've been to clay Thompson comes back and up front. Let's see what they do. This is why you went on God, no money be elites in auto Porter. My guess is kevon loony probably starts, but that's probably one of those star play 5 minutes and then see you later. Kind of thing, and then they mix and match would be elites and green and everybody else. With that. So and then wiseman will be back in the mix. Eventually there and whether that helps them immediately on the corridor as you said, just trade value and boosting that up. That could be a thing as well. Indeed, all right, I'm taking one last look around here, seeing if anything else crazy happened while we were discussing here. I'm not saying too much, so fingers crossed. Quinn cook, we mentioned he was in a workout. With the warriors, he was going to be in a full longer workout group. He's not going to be because he signing with the Portland trailblazers. So he is going to join the trailblazers on a camp deal. Pierre non guaranteed contract Portland added a ton of veteran guys..

"Wondering if we should do anything it lock ourselves in a freaking basement. Hey, wouldn't be saying that if his teams for no instead of two into exactly I mean, not only to into, but they get their asses kicked by Illinois last night. I mean, they got pummeled at home. And so if you come out with that statement, you know, prior to the game. Or, you know, maybe in a couple weeks when you're seven and two When you get your ass kicked by Illinois, and then you come out on your side. We probably should write and your and your duke and you're supposed to be in a up in up cycle. Not a down cycle. Yeah, absolutely. And Coach K knows if I ever have the chance to ask him one question. I'm gonna ask him. Why were you at the scoreboard? Sweet thing. Sweet 16 game against Utah. Why were you at the scoreboard when the game was over? You want by five, but you're blowing a gasket trying to get a last second foul And they went, of course, bought both teams back out of the locker room and Quinn Cook got Two free throws misses the first makes the 2nd $14 million shifted hands here in Vegas. So that was major. I was doing work for Matchstick over there, ESPN you and then Andy. Andy Katz wanted me on his show, right? And then when I told him, you know About that many Saigon. Next thing you're gonna tell me about flying, you know, flying saucers and UFO's and and conspiracy theories. I go, Andy, listen at $14 million. You're not Vegas, right? You don't know Vegas. You don't understand. Vegas, your college basketball junkie. You You do a great job writing, but you don't know crap about Vegas. So you called me. To put me on your show to ask me the inside stuff that I know. And all I know is when everybody was shaking hands, Utah because what happened for you folks? It didn't see it Or don't remember. Dylan, right? Who's also in the NBA. Now you talk first. Okay, right. Good ball player. Alondra 2.5 seconds left. Utah has scored to cut the game down to five. The line on the game. 95% of the places was 5.5. Okay, I had bought it up to six. It was May Bovada had it. It's six but everywhere else had 5.5. There were a couple five. Okay,.

"They're always looking to say okay. You st quinn cook in the nba or you see alex caruso in the nba. Or he see this other player who's succeeding at the nba level and contributing to a playoff team or championship. Teams and the g. league is always very quick to kind of do a you know you see them now. But this is what they were doing in the g. league a year to three years ago and all kind of i have it. Just click on that. That lincoln in twitter wherever it is Half paying attention and then hear my voice for particular players or particular highlights so that's a bit jarring in the moment. Have to kind of confirm that that it was me and trying to think about where that is. And where i was and why i was there so i think in those instances people probably skip ahead quickly in those flips. But it's always interesting to kind of just find work that could have been from two to three four five years ago pop up seemingly out of nowhere when the g. league is trying to promote One of their past players doing something great in the nba. that's great..

"He's GonNa provide some value to us, so I I definitely rather have the not yeah, yeah, absolutely, and here's the other guy that I want to highlight I'm not getting many questions about him right now and I'm. A little disappointed in that Quinn Cook Queen Cook Look. You know what Cook I thought. He started the game out. He wasn't aggressive enough enough on the offensive end, but. I liked the defensive intensity that we saw from. And that's been the big drawback about Quinn Cook has been. His defense is ability to defend I thought he played with a lot of energy now that doesn't mean he was successful defending all the time because he wasn't, but I thought he did a really nice job. Being active active feet, active hands soft. Soft from him there, and then once the game got into the second half, Lebron and eighty one on the floor he kind stopped deferring so much, and he started to take some chances for himself on the night. He finishes with thirteen points five of seven shooting. He didn't get them in the way. We expect it one from three. Normally, you'd expect A. A lot more threes from him, but three of three from the free throw line two boards two assists. We saw him in the pick and roll game pulling up for that mid range jumper a few times. That is a specialty shot of his and I like the way that he attacked the basket I thought. Overall. It was a pretty nice performance because I had almost been counting Quinn, cook out of the running to kind of take on that Rondo spot in the second unit. Shut for sure it's GonNa. Be Alex Crusoe. Alex. crusoe doesn't play tonight. Because of a back contusion, he hit the floor in practice yesterday, and when cooked it a nice job with the opportunity that was presented to them. Yeah, but like. You mentioned. You were talking about our Caruso Mu. You're talking about before that so Alex Alex Caruso. He injured his back he he just hit the floor in practice, and so we had a back into if it was the playoffs, I'm sure he'd be playing. This is just zero reason to risk in scrimmage, so he didn't play so that meant Quinn Coke had an opportunity to. Go out there and I thought. Yeah Coke! A COUPLE OF PLAYS YEAH! He came up like came up of and in a shot, and but I mean, and the funny thing is is. Still a cooked I mean I i. hear everything you're saying, but even with all the effort. He was trying to put it defensively it always it just feels like to me when I watched that he's always going to be a liability defensively, and it's just more just because of you know I don't know if he was gifted with. The physical presence that really be able to defend somebody. You know what I mean. He's not a very big guy, and he's very quick guy at the same time, so you know it just looks like it would be a..

"He posted earlier. Today I feel like I can handle the point of attack. I can handle the basketball. Put the ball on the floor They're gonNA need to do that. They're going to need somebody who can put the basketball on the floor in initiate often, so we have to look out for them well. That's an interesting point because Kyle Kuzma. They were using him a lot more in pick and roll. Season shutdown. They were putting him into that role situation as the ball handler, and he made some good decisions. It's not a natural thing for him, but we saw him get into the paint and then kick out to open shooters a few times. He's got a pretty soft touch once he gets into the paint so I can see why Frank Vogel and want to do that. I don't think that he's necessarily going to be your primary initiator. So. Let me throw out there. Because I know, we need to talk about about dion waiters, and by the way I am shocked at how many people have been in our chat? Saying what run does hurt? How are where have you been guys? This happened yesterday. Check the Lakers nation Youtube Channel. I did a video about it. Think the big news, but yes Rondo broke his thumb for those who were under a rock, and you did not know this, but yeah. It happened Quinn Cook. What about the Lakers brought him in last summer to be a point guard? They brought him into maybe challenge for minutes. We know he can shoot the basketball defensively, not great, but neither as Rondo. Why should the minutes go to Quinto? They could and we did discuss this team defensively. It's going to take a step back. They're not going to be. Is that juggernaut defensively? Especially, the point of attack guarding guys ninety four feet. He's a great option. He can shoot the basketball. He has plenty of Reps. Plan Golden State, catching and shooting. It's exactly what this team's GonNa need from on not expecting it really just run the show, but he can run a few pick and rolls like you said different. He can shoot the bastable should. Should provide some space at least somewhat how who's also enjoys the play with other players that create space. It would help through so maybe you have a Quin Cook POW Kuzina not great defensively unit, but you're not gonna be able to have the best options available to you when you lose an avery. Bradley GonNa have to find ways that you can't succeed offensively. Quinn Cook might be able to do that. And you know what I'm not gonNA. Write them off. I wouldn't say it's likely. Because the defensive deficiencies have been pretty pronounced. Quinn, Cook you can put them in pick and roll, and he's got a little jumper. He struggles getting to the Rim and scoring there. But I still think there might be a role for him and here's the thing. These with Rondo out now with brand the out the three scrimmage games, but you're going to be televised on spectrum. The threes scrimmage games, and the eight seething gains, which were the Lakers are pretty much just preseason games because they're. They're fairly locked into their spot. Those games now become even more important because now not only does frank. Vote will have to figure out WHO's GONNA take on. These minutes now is to figure out the Rondo minutes and again. Rondo might be back, but he's going to have to really tweak things. Play with a lot of stuff so I'm going to be keeping a very close eye on guys like Quinn Cook and another one that we absolutely need to talk about, and I'm seeing Alex crusoes name getting thrown out there and we'll talk about him, too, but let's talk about waiters..

Follow suit that I was brave of the lead but a even prior before that we had been gearing up for this. I don't think to this extent but no we had been ready to play with no fans on for a while that was chattering on around league. All it could have been a break. I remember people talking about. It could be two week break so we can get a grasp of what's going on obviously has been bouncing now but no we we we. We've had an information for awhile while on and time you know there's a new update with the virus with the world we know.

Everybody has no on what they got going on. So it's not really nobody's annoying is literally just joke. Saints was funny on the Internet. It's fine is is.

It's still hard like even you know pitch at him and G are here anymore. No Kobe had to be in there on December How impactful he was on. Mj On his basketball. Because you know from our generation you know he was on my Jordan no he.

The new documentary we showtime and Kevin Durant about this incredible area and Maryland producing unbelievable. Mba Quinn thanks. So much for joining us all. Thanks for having me my pleasure Quinn. Let's start with the upcoming documentary on Showtime that. I just talked about Basketball County in the water. About Prince George's County Maryland. And how this section alongside the DC border produces an overwhelming of MBA talent including yourself. Talk to me about the project. And how much were you involved in it very much involved? you know it was a dream. Come true for me I majored in theater. So I've always been known to documentaries and you know editing and I'm like biasing of theater and You know there's something I've always wanted to do. Just shed light on where I'm from because I is such a unique place in the no close together a place and anybody from there tell you the same thing we all support each other especially guys who play basketball and who've made it you know to college in any type of pro so no for Kevin in enrich climbing to bring me on. It means a lot man and I know we've created something that you know. Everybody will love. I mean I can't wait to watch it as you mentioned you're part of this story in a crucial way you've said in the past even though you're physically and La your heart is always with pg county how was it. They're growing for you to talk to me a little bit about your childhood growing up on it was fine. We could do a lot. You know we had you know. Football Baseball knows basketball. Any anything sports related and just being a kid is something that you know any. Kate wants Opportunity to be great and For me growing up there I had so many resources so many people that look to so many people idolize and You know I just think that you know. I'm lucky to be from where I'm from specifically with basketball fans and is documentary. What do you think people are going to get out of it as they put your community you know on the big screen? What what do you think? We're going to get out of it when we watch it on. Just how together? We are close. We are on Japanese to each other is no hate is no jealousy is nothing is really all loving and and it's really a brotherhood. I think you know we started looking at different cities. What players from each city we compare to? La's in New York's Chicago's are we talking about one county. You're talking about one small Canada. Where all five ten minutes away from each other like we all grew up together. Go to school together. Go to church. Same Church Saint barbershops everything. So I think that's the the unique part about it and I think a lot of people don't really realize mystique until you start naming names and It's just an amazing pool of talent and not just basketball this thousands. Are you ella more about you? Know Our county absolutely. I mean you talk about yourself. Obviously Kevin Durant bitter depot as well. We just go on and on with the names. Do you think you talk. You're talking a lot about unity. Community love friendship. Do you think that's a major reason? Why the ratio of the growth of NBA on and has come obviously talented as as a major part of it. But this support around each one each individual's party a big key. Would you say you agree with that now for sure they everybody plays a big part on for me? It's like the guys who made the NBA are the only guys really get. You know that publicity opposite or resources is different than fans in basketball coach watches on a nightly basis. But for me it's like the people didn't make it. We all have a lot of guys who knows chose wrong on paths and you know. Sometimes the political side worked in their favor and basketball so they didn't get to go as far as we did so for us is like we want to share like everybody to the people who didn't make the people who helped us gave coaches the. Is Everything Pioneers in? Dc in a pressure county is something that means a lot to Louis so you talk a lot about that amplifying everybody and you know you actually show that a lot with your own foundation alongside your family. You know just continuing to help the area especially during this time earlier this month for example handing out meals to local police and firefighters. How important is it to you that you stay close to this community? Even when you're you know across the country as the world it means the world you. I don't know how much it means for for myself for my peers. Continue to give back and help on is is is just a blessing. Because that's what the guys before us and we wanted to keep you know of moving at four because we WANNA help everybody and no for my family just to be on. Frontline baroness this and helping out and You know it also basketball player. Not Like my family would does the same thing I grew up. We always know Thanksgiving Christmas we will go feed the homeless and stuff like that trying to help out on. My parents has always tried to instil. Like you know you guys are looking. You have a roof over your over here. You have two parents you you you. You're not missing meal. You have closing back on. Never not deaf granted so now that started early so I think I can speak for myself personally about it made the NBA or not. My family and myself were still be on the front line. No helping others. Because that's how we raise. Yeah and even more so now during this pandemic you see that. Know that unity even more. So let's talk about you Quinn for for you've previously talked quite honestly about your experiences at the damn especially when it broke out and when you took the test early on how how was it for you. What were those feelings? And how are you feeling? Now as the country deals with this year the tests on my experience I mean I think a lot of people will tell you uncomfortable nor is is a rough but Knows where it just to have a peace of mind. You'll get the right information and how to go about things in the you never would have thought the world could come to this saying. It's the worst thing that can happen ever but is a unique talk for all of us and we don't really have a grasp what was going on like. There's like no right answer like no just a lot no vaccines or anything. So listened to the experts. Listen to our government and just take a precaution up staying Away people staying away from large crowds cracking social dissing washing hands for twenty seconds. All that stuff counts all that Madison matters a lot of stuff that we grew up. No being taught really so no I just go about it. How everybody else is trying to stay positive. It could be a lot worse while pray for the families in people who are affected by this who can go to work. Wet Live on a check-check basis in their checks on coming in because there's no work With people whose family situations and household situation are comfortable or you know just very lucky. I'm very lucky and blessed. The seed is not going on and can't go outside as much but Noah it could be worse on for myself so always keep that in mind and I'll just trying to out.

"That I think that you know gold state it seems the pedigree but they lost a lot of key facts English dollar let me think guys that held that locker room held that clean I don't care if they're getting older people want to push the old guys out and I understand that when it comes along Coppola comes to a long grueling season those guys are key and so for him I think you'll be successful I think average around nineteen twenty points because they give the score but they're gonna have difficulty in this in the first year were you know call feature come back to the norm with other teams a good deal all sing struggles everybody else just one clay comes back I think it'll help them but I think that he's arguably someone that their goal which we've seen with how much value what do you think it's great that trade deadline unless you think it has to be trade deadline I could you could be in the mix this time next summer yeah injuries happen how how well he plays a piece hot at that deadline try to get more or book at the actual mail out one thing I'll say about him that if dole coming into because it was his maturity with a question mark his work ethic was phenomenal the state book on the whole time taking care of his body and so I thought you learn how to become a parole Brooklyn and and that's going to help him now two of his career you're listening to the Dan Patrick show we are joined by Los Angeles Lakers new forward Jared Dudley Hey jerit look obviously I was hearing that while I was going to the Lakers a lot of people we're hearing that around the league how close do you think that was happening and were you surprised when it didn't work out he ended up with the clippers articles very close in the sense of you hear reports and means that he was going to choose a like if if even if the if the saloons and added second star right this is be listened be awesome what the clippers did is phenomenal I mean the the kilo four first round picks gallon already in the young point guard and you know Gilchrist what would the starting point guard this legal is what really have you up by your three four years you can be one of the one of the better goalies in this league so this in a in a big deal a lot and that they should look for a guy like why linger but dole guys don't make that trade I mean I is anyone else doubting that he was going to go back to a triangle and are not play with the Lakers he obviously one of the second star he obviously wanted to be P. for tickets to fill with fluid you can best at that so you give you give props to the clippers in making that trade and now we have a a prepay ready for the first time in a long time in this league and I think that viewership will be up yeah sales will be up but I think that it is good to happen the end of the day man I don't know a better couple right now the lebron James in eighty years that's a clue why they're all George called thought how like we stay here well let me let me ask you this J. your own follow up with lebron and point guard that's all the talk now to he's going to play point I mean obviously he's played a lot of point guard throughout his career you know about sixty five percent of the time roughly what do you do you think this is a I like you met point because I think it defines everybody else's role better how do you see it working out with him a point thank you think think you'll fade back to just what he's always done it you know you always want to give you know if if what I I haven't heard the head coach say that you're thought you know you can also use your head coach how they want to play but we all know lebron when it comes down to the ball this heated seventy eighty percent the time that being said is if you have another call this the we had a chi read let's see we had another play making top tier guard lebron we would come out and say that no we have good guards Wandle hall of fame hi gourd waters career eating older stuff like that you have guys like Quinn cook who haven't had that full responsibilities Liberal Party is looking at it that high that's what you say listen we had any Davis he's going to be all the score he's going to be the player that two years ago people thought into the cabinet top three player in the league he's going to take that next step in for me I have to facilitate more I have to get these other guys Danny green stocks that Kyle cruise missiles and so I think it's fine I think the Avery Bradley shoot the biggest kick out of the of the offices the Lakers obviously the trade I'm a you take if he was out where people forget how the leak of a defense of guard Avery Bradley you if you right your call if you guys a call from Kaiba Irving said the hardest player to score against for him with Avery Bradley and so now if he starts if you if he doesn't or even a play I know that because defense your place he's gonna gardenia lives as to what the west broke all the cop the legal issues so that makes it easier to lebron for one the one but still guard the small forward yeah sure I would agree with that my only question this is the biggest concern I have for the Lakers is head to head against the clippers is wing defense as I see it you the defense of wings for the Lakers are yourself how close well and lebron James I I personally am not certain if Casey P. and Danny green could could check call why and Paul George's a lot of success so that was my only question do you think the Lakers still need another wing defender or do you think that the rest of the west as you said is mostly guards and I and I think you guys are set to handle those I I I mean eight that's what it that's what the prairie comes is not there's no warriors with the four hall of Famers is stacking up but one feels the question I mean I get I got a question for you we're going at the Davis let's see yeah well I poke holes in the clippers early I just it goes both ways and you're right it's the Peace Corps called George quite an eight you know let's let's should we had an English dial or another tight we live in a look at its heart will go on that the guard into and so you're right I mean it's going to be a peace and and I think what one so take the challenge of the Stassi playoff time eight here are wonderful he had no problems are one of them have to do is like easily got big fell in at the deep respect your check that pain in you have guys like Bradley to to be the head of the snake to pick up these courts full court you know the eight people have a Pat bet that that was great it was a player the navy branded isn't something comes up that easily Hey thanks he might he might not look you in the eye next time he sees you all will be Barker he should meet at athlete that's what made him that I had huge respect for at that Avery Bradley Bradley was right he was to diligence no the wood district anyway Avery Bradley was the best distance record in the league now he had injuries and now he is that we show that we sold the NBA let's be honest it's a it's it's a what what have you done for me lately legal and I'm excited to see Jay gray stuff make congradulations on

Chris Haynes, Brown And Avery Bradley discussed on Golic & Wingo
"The Lakers couple of really interesting things here according to Chris Haynes a Yahoo sports they intend to usual brown as a point guard which doesn't really surprise numbers were ever lebron has been the ball always goes through right that's not a surprise but they also get a really good signing I think to me Avery Bradley gets a two year deal for just under ten million he is a really really good defensive player and the kind of player when you have lebron and happening Davis and Cruz Mar and boogie cousins these and now Danny green news are you know what I want on the outside they're building an interesting team right they are certainly what they threw together last year but I think everybody understood last year was kind of that waste year that this year okay they didn't get kawaii but they got at the Davis putting some pretty good pieces there and and as you said lebron playing the point is a point forward for our version I just changed it to a point guard you're the other point guards rot rajon rondo Quinn cook Alice Caruso the other point guards on the roster Alonso ball now is gone there but I do like what they're what they're doing and put the ball in the hands of lebron James let him lead the way you know I think it surpassed the low expectations we had for where they were going to be able to operate from this point like once you went all in on the kawaii thing and wait as long as you did I missed out on those true good waves of free agency one man they're gonna be operating out of the bargain bin but now we've seen a couple of names that we know that make a little more sense than last year which again lowered the bar because of how poor their free agent choices seem to be all last year well I remember last year we're gonna say grown else's zags now yeah I
Lakers, Zach And Clippers discussed on Afternoons with Marcellus & Kelvin
"Wanna take a moment here to try to dissect in understand quiet leonard situation as it pertains to the lakers as it pertains the league throughout the season zach the narrative right the collective media narrative was raptors were clippers say that you didn't hear much lakers stuff emanating then all of a sudden the laker chatter got really loud really live end end so that almost to at least to an extent changed the way i think the laker fans were looking at the building of the roster where it was like okay now with the bron and anthony davis and look why fitting into their over media dynasty sort of talk about them the same way you would golden state and then it slipped back in the other direction all of a sudden he signed with the clippers and my my initial thought was okay well this fits more of what i would have thought why would have done based on what we've known about him yeah which isn't much by the way like we know so little about why we believe the apple store at a steakhouse right i don't know about you i know a lot about why i got this guy on yeah i mean whatever they were trying to show remind quinn cook i saw earlier that's good what's he gonna who's gonna who's gonna who's gonna need a lawyer but so george that's like you and i we've been here right we've been here in vegas

"Go for the warriors tonight. It's sorta mumbo jumbo that, yes, it is the last game of oracle in, it is meaningful, and yes, they are playing for K D, but they're also playing for three Pete. They're also playing for their legacies and I feel like right now. The raptors are the better team am I wrong. I feel all the things you just said, I'm about playing for K D. I mean, I, I think all those things are always a little bit overstated. No matter who we're talking about the plan for themselves. I mean you know. Yeah, they feel for KDB's you know, any teammates someone sometimes the closer that others and it seems like particularly clay. I mean, Stephan dollar you just look at the, you know, sort of interaction over the last couple of years, it seems like those guys in particularly I'm sure they're all close on some level, but the players themselves so yes, the legacy and don't even think legacy just playing the win. You want to win the why you do this. Which we play to win the game and war is going to have all that. They're going to have the crowd, never, how much of that count alternately when they need some some buckets lane net game. And if clay and stuff tired, but he got to Luckett getting dues out there. And now we're gonna get points from, you know, they need seventy points probably from, from the three all stars, and then they're going to need. I don't know kind of get a dozen points on dollar. Can they get a couple of buckets looney 'cause he plays then they get a couple of threes? They did I think in game two. From Quinn cook, but where are those people, the, the unannounced, people, the non-stars that they're gonna get contributions from? I'm talking about specifically basket 'cause Toronto defense is good long athletic and they know what they're doing the Milwaukee and they've done it in this series. But they didn't do it the other night. So the warriors. No, they can score who's going to do it, though. So, yeah, I'm I'm twisted myself in all kinds of Russia. That's why I never say, I have some great idea was going to you know who's gonna win this game. I don't know. I'm I'm tired of predicted. I just want to see it. Yeah. And you know, the who's the perfect guy to battle the emotion on the other team. I mean Colli Leonard doesn't give a crap about anything, quite letter. He's just lethal. You know what I mean? He is lethal. And it's you know who why Hawaii has been, you know, even if Durant played all these games, two of them would be sharing the marquee to me as the best players in the playoffs. You know they did this like the like other sports too, where you got the MVP for the whole competition for the play offs and not just for the final. So not just four is fine as p. It is case, it'd be as case, man. I mean, she the night that runny had. I did think I Tony said there's an I agree. It was Jordan like maybe it didn't have as many points in the barrage. But that two minutes. We really don't those two threes. Most four four four. That's big time in and I, I just you can't he he seems to make a bad player, bad judgment, like once a month..

"I'm saying I look at him in the class. How did he went four weeks between name six in Houston? He had five threes. He had done that once in a hundred and thirty two playoff game you could sit. We have thirty seconds is any chance in your mind. That Quinn cook could get a going. Yeah. Sure. He had three threes in game two. Yeah. And that is probably the best candidate for tomorrow, though. If you're going for the last game at oracle and I'm I'm hanging onto this with both hands. Never has the road team. Won five straight games in a finals. And we really gonna have this Toronto gonna win the road team wins five straight finals games. That would never have that cannot happen. Can't forget where I mentioned man. They travel well Toronto. Well, they brought out their staff for games three and four like we do, like you bring three hundred people that work for the warriors. Okay. So for that group because after the game, my son I kinda hung. For game six. Yeah. So, yeah. Okay. So same. Yeah. I mean. No. I mean it's a country. People got people got cash, there you want to be there, in case rappers win the title. And I saw the superfan guy assault. Before game three him in the bathroom before game five weird. Got real weird just say and I was like, hey, I know you public you saw in about three years. We never say in the bathroom. Nice watch. Yes. Anything can I take a selfie? I wonder if Leonard's really inspired by that guy. Those guys think they're really, oh boy, I'm here. And I'm rooting again, these guys even look twice at these people.

What's frustrating about the Warriors?
"I tell you, here's the frustrating thing about the Golden State Warriors. It really is the fact that they had Klay Thompson out in the second half. The fact that Steph Steph Curry's a little bit under the weather. The fact that boogie cousins coming back from an injury. The fact that Kevin Durant. Maybe the best player in the world is not playing in this series. The fact that Quinn cook has all the big shots in the fourth quarter of that game. That's why the warriors are so frustrating.
"quinn cook" Discussed on The Dan Patrick Show
"Our poll question today brought to you by man versus food on cooking channel, mclovin. What is our poll question is the NBA finals over are the NBA over sixty nine percent say no? But it's trending towards. And closer to fifty fifty that it was. Yeah. It's not over because I never wanna make that mistake and fall into that trap, but had Toronto one last night, and they should have one and I look at them. They lost that it wasn't as much Golden State winning, you know, Toronto loss and you have to be ready for the third quarter. I'm sure Nick nurse the Toronto head coach said guys, they're coming out, and we got to withstand this, you, you can't know that it's happening and still not be able to do anything about it and fended off. Boogie cousins played. Well, he deserves a lot of credit. Steph didn't play great. Now. I called a Janke defense. They played a box in one on him for a while. Klay Thompson got banged up a little bit here. Ego dollar hit a big shot, but they allowed Golden State to hang around, and when you're building up a big lead, double digits, and you're gonna coast into halftime. You can't let Golden State pick off a couple of hoops. And then all of a sudden they get momentum they adjust. Just in the second half. And then you lose and now we're tied at a game apiece. If I would have said, at the beginning of the first two days prior to the start of the finals if I would have said, hey, Toronto's going to split with Golden State at home. You probably would have accepted that if you're Toronto fan, you probably would have went all right? I get greedy. Because I know there's certain moments certain games where you have to win you have to early in the season or early in a series you have to win those games. And this is one of those games last night, where I thought this, this will be the one that comes back and haunt them. Yes. Loving in like the second quarter, something Toronto is up by ten boogie cousins was still looking really Russi. I thought the series was over. I was like the warriors like show old and rusty. And Frankie curry comb today thing. Oh, I'd never say, they're not be over with Golden State, Golden State looks they're such a mash unit. I mean, cousins play great in the second half in the first half you could see him working it out. You know, on the court there, I mean, they have guys like direct go and Quinn cook, what does that say about that team? You know, it says a lot about Steve, curb his ability to go to them, and they came up with a couple of big shots there, and I applaud Toronto for playing a box in one on Steph curry because I loved it because it made sense, we may look at the purity the game, and you can't play a box and who's to say I'm trying to win a championship here. I don't care what you think as long as the Commissioner allows us to do it. We don't get penalized punished. Find anything then do it desperate times desperate measures. And I loved it because it brought me back to high school days in the state championship or state title games, and they played. Walks in one and I just watched as we lost. So I understand why Steph curry would hate it and be like that's a Janke defense. You know what the other guys step up, then they all of a sudden stop playing that kind of defense. All right.

"quinn cook" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"Via the shell Pennzoil performance line. We're talk to Michael wilbon momentarily. Brought to you by the new Chevy nitro plus premium gasoline now with or levels of defense against gunk, where Grosjean and friction which is nice. Mike wilbon. He was, of course, in Toronto for the warriors one, oh nine one zero four victory, of course, host of various other forms on the ESPN, Michael first and foremost, DeMarcus cousins, a guy who goes from eight minutes, and largely relevant in game number one to gay. Game number two in which he basically not by himself. But had a pretty good job in contributing to a series tying. One, one. What did you think of cousins performance and additional minutes tonight? Well kind of in bogut. I'm Obogu play few minutes, but the two of them together, we don't talk about big. We'll talk about, you know, seven-foot centers, not old fashioned low post guide in the NBA anymore at all. But we have to night cooked together in tandem. Their contribution was pretty huge and it more than offset Marcus performance in Casale is really good. And gave what instruments runaway that game? But yet prestige Kurdi getting minutes and production and production in all areas. I mean scoring rebounding, assisting defense, especially of the night where you know, Steph curry could get going early with over six didn't he was scoring the first quarter and then Klay Thompson, you know in got injured late wasn't in the game in the fourth quarter. I mean he had those guys, I mean you look down with adventure, Golden State. You think there's not much? But then Quinn cook has the game. He has, and then cousins he was coming off the bench, cousins, and bogus that was to me a total surprise. You know, Mike when you talk about the warriors you so many people talk about offense and when they refer to this dynasty, and they the offense is out shine the defense and yet look at the second half of game two twenty nine. Nine percent is what Toronto shots yakking was to of ten the ball movement. Totally stopped for Toronto. They only had seven assists in the entire second half. I guess the question is was the moment too big for some of these young raptors or do credit Golden State's defensive effort. Yeah. No, it wasn't too big game one so. No. I mean, isn't going to go back and forth? This is what's going to happen. One guy's going to make adjustments and play harder and trying to do things better and smarter. Than the previous game. And then it's up to you have got to, to, to counter. And so this is what play basketball is especially basketball 'cause you're talking about confronting each other probably played hockey in the same way but playoff basketball, we're talking about. And no. I don't think anything was too big for after that, they, there's a reason why the warriors have won three championships in the last four years and played in the finals. Please row. This is what we expected. I expected Toronto. Winging one an that's Golden State to win game too much in the way they did, you know, people say, oh, well, they just had to stretch their quarter. That's what they do. You know, anybody is paying attention people were just coming into stuff. Lately may not realize it, but Golden State has used at third quarter formula for five years to get to the NBA finals into win three championships. So this is what I spent is fix around and come back and, and try and counter, and we'll see what go to pass. Typically, you know what's going on the case of personnel, with in Klay Thompson. What's going on with the hamstring looney? What's going on with the collar bone Durant? What if anything is going on with the possibility of him being back in the lineup. You've all those things plus the moves that each team. You know, your snake in the John Lennon, Larry Krueger on ESPN radio. Speaking with Michael wilbon, what oh nine one four the warriors we in Toronto now at this series heads back to Oakland series tied at one game a piece, what you just mentioned there all the injuries and Andre dollar at the end with five and a half. Seconds hits that big three pointer isn't aren't we talking about here? This is championship medal. This is what championship teams do. Yes. In every sport and every sport, this is what champs do, and they there's a confidence that they know what they're doing is a savvy as an intellect that let arrogance and there's a -bility to perform under pressure gets greater look at Quinn cook Quinn cook last year. Somebody that, you know, was in mop time garbage time to provide some minutes, probably, you know as much important to, to, to, to their practice efforts as the game even this season, you know. Yeah. They feel Steve Kerr trust in the more once you've been around that situation at once you've, you're playing and practicing with champions, every day. You you've become that. So now Quinn cook comes into the fourth quarter, three threes, and you saying when he gets the boat couple of times, I've thought Quinn, not followed him since he was he's a neighbor of where I am it's bourbon DC, and I followed him into a high school is just a terrific person. But the sequin cook, now, God, people become champions. They evolve in it if they grow into it, and so now Queen cook can be can be dependent on by Steve Kerr, and that team was halfway out on the floor. Chest bumping Queen cook after one of those three and so, yeah, this is what this is what champions do even the guys who may have been bit players that at one time become dependent upon. Huge game again for Draymond green. Seventeen points. Ten boards nine assists setup Andrew bogut. Couple times, right at the rim bogus. Very limited offensively. Green knows that set him up right there for some easy, easy, dunks, and lay ups. Also had a couple of steals locally Chris Mullin in northern California's compared greens playoff run to Magic Johnson. I know you're close with magic and I know you've watched green going back to Michigan state. What do you make of greens ascension year? He's in the best shape of his career, he's not battling with the officials getting getting things reined in and he's absolutely playing the best ball of his life, and they need it. I mean, remember they, they still have been missing Kevin Durant. Rob forget, how many games like seven or eight games these play offs and they needed they migrated meeting all three of them. And obviously curry has been as great as he's ever been in some of these games, particularly the Houston series. And again a couple of times. His Portland and, and clay, you know, as, as you know, doesn't have the volume of shooting, he's averaging more shots without Durant in there without the rent, they need all three of those guys do that. And Mons, believable, you mentioned magic, of course, there's some influence, you know, going back to just the fact that they both went to Michigan state in any influence of magic is always going to have at Michigan state on anybody in the state of Michigan to, to sort of play a certain way and with a certain intellect in a certain savvy, and it's interesting because dream on, you know he can he can be involved in the discussion if people wanna get in about what he's doing with the officials and technical fouls dramatics and a few years ago was kicking, and this and that and what sometimes maybe we gets overlooked just just how tremendous he is. So here's a guy who was thought when he came in the league didn't get drafted very high. 'cause people didn't he was. Without a position. What does he need a position? I mean he's just an extraordinary basketball player with the trust of his team that he can run the team all of the offense can run through him at any time, and it often did not you mentioned, those assists he did. He got bogut baskets. Very few guys illegal to understand they need to get bogut in a position way doesn't have to catch the ball out of that the handle dribbling go down, come back up and dream on gets all of that. And he spearheads the defense, and he's gotta take a white linen, and nobody's gonna stop, whoever their possessions where he's gotta deal with Hawaii, lit of different dishes, where he's gotta deal with Siaka and he's just a tremendous two way player. And he's playing the best basketball of his career, and they're going to need that again with the certainty regarding all those players that laundry list of warriors you just mentioned. They're gonna need even more dream on in game three in the night. John Lund, Larry Krueger on ESPN radio. We're talking NBA finals. With Michael wilbon. What are nine one zero four the warriors, I the NBA finals, you just mentioned that the narrative tomorrow. I'm sure for a lot of people will be. Well, this is what the words do. It's tied at one game apiece. They're gonna win two in Oakland. They're gonna win this championship. But as you said, if it comes back to Klay Thompson can't play if the Rams not ready to play. All these different guys looney has been a big part of this team off the bench. I first of all, I don't know where they're gonna get offense. If they don't have claimed Iran, will they couldn't get off in the last five minutes tonight? Right. I think that three point about eight dollars. The only was the only bucket right? Other the free throws. So yeah, there's a legit thing, if quay if you don't have clay, and Kevin Durant. I don't. I mean it's going to be awfully hard for them to win game three take a game by game. I don't wanna project too far. I'm one of those people who have been saying, I don't expect to see Kevin Durant. I'll be plays. I hope he's able to play and play and becoming rent, not just be out there, but I don't know that I don't know that I still don't like. Expect to see him be great if he's out there for game three just just, just as a not that I have a rooting interest. I if I'm both these teams pretty irresistible as a basket as a consumer basketball guys wanna see Kevin Durant. I mean who doesn't wanna see Kevin Durant play probably the raptors? Right. Handed. It does not what? The rest of us who just want to see the higher of the bathroom that would include Kevin Durant. I don't know how without during Klay Thompson. 'cause they're already they're already putting too. I mean you see these hard traps. They're throwing on on Steph curry. Yep. Sometimes twenty five feet away from the basket. So I mean, if they're committed to that, then who else is gonna beat depending on the score NBA finals level of scoring, and if dollar is limping around we don't know his situations that it'd be yet. So there's a there's a there's a lot going on here, and some of the people favorite or least, seemingly as we, you know, go west move west is this thing transitions seemingly favors Toronto? Michael great stuff as always. We appreciate it. We know you're busy. Thank of Saint late. And I'm sure we'll see you quite a bit tomorrow analyzing. So we appreciate the insight you guys. Thanks for having me free. She ate it as Michael. There's Michael wilbon ESPN. Of course, you can see him on and other forums throughout the day, as we talk in more NBA finals coming up next, though, we're going to go back to Scotiabank Rena in Toronto. Steph curry, what the heck was that, when you've left the arena was at food poisoning, we're hearing. So we'll hear that as well. And DeMarcus cousins, how gassed is he after going from eight minutes to about thirty and confirming the way he did with eleven points, ten boards, and six assists into the night.

Look because I didn't have a lot of money, left and Quinn, cook was there and Quinn cook is a guy who plays some minutes. And he plays on a team where, you know, may maybe he knocks again if he gets ten points, I'm fucking through the roof, fourteen hundred doesn't doesn't feel good to school pussies rooting for a private. I believe he's the first private school pussy on my team. So here's to Quinn cook for fourteen hundred. Zach let's close it out. Yeah. I mean not much less on the board.

So like you guys said, just hoping for fifteen twenty points off into board. Couple layups and try to anchor down the bottom of the lineup. You know who else doesn't like his game draft kings? He's only twenty eight hundred Koby and he's playing many minutes. No, I liked the value that you might you may get some good fantasy points per dollar there.

They kept poor get onto the fourth quarter lead by sets older brother. Hurry weaves into the front court circles back to the right wing against his brother clear. It out looney comes out high to set the screen goes the other way in for the tunnel ram lay today Steph Tori with thirty four three Golden State up a dozen their largest lead of the game. Steph curry would finish with the game. I thirty six the warriors rally again to beat the blazers this time a one ten ninety nine final. Golden State of three nothing series lead now for a post game extra and Amine, PJ Carlesimo called the game on ESPN radio one to ninety nine Golden State over Portland in comeback fashion once again in game three they come back from eighteen down in the second quarter. They were down thirteen at half time. And just like in game two they come all the way back in other warriors have a commanding three OSA. His lead in the conference final. I mean, there's so many players playing well for this team. I really believe at Golden State doesn't get credit for how good a defensive team. They are what they didn't third quarter. They just refused to let Damian Lillard C, J McCollum get a good look at the basket. They double team. They trapped him. They harassed him. And then when they turn them over came up with the defensive rebound, Draymond green was leading the fast break as he did all night and just ran right back down to blazers throats seventeen eighteen point lead doesn't matter consecutive games. When you defend the way they defended in the second half. And when you share the ball the way they do and get the contributions. They got from their bench to good. Let's talk about two things. Let's start with dream on green. And then let's talk about that bench. Draymond green had a triple double with two minutes to go in the third quarter. That's what Golden State ended up taking its first lead of this game after trailing by eighteen dream on green is playing his best basketball of the season right now. And he continues to do it in the biggest game. Averaging double double in points, and rebounds becomes close in cysts every night tonight he got twelve assists on top of that, but four steals A-block shot, and he sets the tone for this team when they were struggling in the first half to stay in the game him, pushing the ball created all the fast break opportunities in the second half he got a lot of help at one point. It was twenty two eight bench points in favor of Portland wrote Golden State spent just in the second half just jumped all over them and it wasn't just with the offense combined looney was excellent McKay defensively Shaun Livingston as always Jordan bell Quinn. Cook Jonas Gerardo. I mean, Steve Kerr's keeps throwing fresh bodies at them and one after the other. They all contribute, there just weren't enough players even come close to matching that for the Portland trailblazers and for a fourth consecutive playoff game. Steph curry has thirty plus points head that huge performance in the second half against Houston in game six, and he's been rock solid. And beyond in this series.

How The Warriors Finished The Rockets
"There's moments that certain guys put themselves in thrive. Right. I don't know about how many times you used to do this story. But for me, I grew up, and we'll we do we go to the back yard we go to the local park. Grab a basketball say five three like we put ourselves in those moments. Right. It was those moments those games, and yet maybe Steph curry and Klay Thompson where he wouldn't do it on NBA courts when they were little because of their fathers, but they put themselves in those moments because in the fourth quarter there there was a a distance between Steph and clay versus the reigning MVP of of elite. Like James harden has to take over James harden has put the team on his back. I mean, he hit maybe I think one shot down the stretch. But if I'm the Houston Rockets, I gotta go down with my best player. And so yes for Titas, right? Yes. I we gotta fight. Because there was there was no fight that I saw the strain. You know, the the termination the look of grit. It was a look of I'm climbing a mountain and all of a sudden instead of keeping my eyes at the top I turn around and look back down. Well. You look back down. And now, you're like, oh, I didn't know where this high. You can't do that. You gotta keep fighting keep scrapping keep clawing keep climbing. The rockets didn't do that. And now you stuck with some. Oh, man. We're looking at contracts yesterday. It's it's a mess, man. Oh, man. They got locked a lot of guys are locked in. They're already here the luxury cap threshold with guaranteed money for next season. It's they can't make many changes. It's not much that you can really do especially in in today's NBA. If you don't have the space. I mean, you have to move contracts round to obtain obviously free agents to come into Houston. Look, I don't I don't doubt that they would get free agents. But do you have the space, but also to you know, what do you do with Chris Paul Chris Paul look he had a good game yesterday that I'm not going to you know, you know, kind of bash him a little bit, but he had a poor series. And yesterday was better favorable matchup him going against, you know, Quinn cook. And Steph curry that's a little bit different. But when you know other guys were put on them, he didn't really step up. So as much as I want to praise the wars, I will as a warriors fan born and raised in Oakland, California. I wanna praise them so much. But a lot of this falls on the of James harden. And yet and the rockets 'cause they wanted to smoke and they got smoke. Okay. They wanted all the warriors small like all we want them this mirror last year, we want them, and if we were fully healthy with Chris Paul and yet the situation you had them up. I mean, you had the series tied to to Katie goes out, and you've been mixed to gangs. It's this is more. I think about James harden in the rockets, not season the moment. Well, Mike dantonio rockets head coach will have plenty of questions to answer. This is his sixth straight elimination game loss, which is the second longest streak for a head coach NBA postseason history.

"Friday, all the way living go leading up to game six. I thought that everybody forgot the heart of a champion. They forgot that there's moments that some guys, and I'm telling you be for my career in the NFL. There's big moments that guys tend to shy away those knees star buckling chess starts beating real hard. Okay. Dari and all of a sudden nose Palm's or sweaty. And now everybody's looking around saying, man. But those are the moments that some guys relishing Steph curry, he he wants those moments Klay Thompson, I don't know if it's the first quarter of the fourth quarter the way that he plays. He's consistent whether he's making them or you missing them. He still looks to save in. That's the temperament of this warriors team. But trust me, I don't wanna keep rambling all man. But it's just crazy to think that they were missing out on thirty five points from Kevin Durant and get their bench guys who hadn't played pretty much all series long came in and gave them minutes. Kvant? Looney Quinn, cook Jaanus, your f-. You know, Quinn cook. I heard pleads what nineteen seconds in the series plead sixteen minutes in the game. It was effective. But he he did give them three assists off the bench. No, you're right movement. Absolutely. Right. I had to look up who the heck McKinney is. Yes, when he was at no clue absolute. But that's what it is. And it's those moments during okay Kirk Morrison with you Dorian Mel ESPN radio that would. Lead a head coach who has seen so many championships. So many big win. So many massive occasions actually say as Steve Kerr does here. This was one of the biggest wins. He remembers we were actually talking about it in there. You know, it's one of the most satisfying victories. We've had her in this run. We've we've been been blessed to have all this talent and competitiveness. And and these guys are are they're they're just amazing. So they've won a lot of big games. But this is definitely one of the most one of the most satisfying. We've had. Yeah..

"One fifteen one eleven where wind Saturday night in Boston their tenth consecutive win in a game. That was a lot of fun to watch from beginning to end, you got a lot of showmanship from from Kevin Durant from boogie cousins from Trayvon greenhouse staff went on top fire at one point in the second period, not down four consecutive three-pointers finished with twenty four points. Six made threes on the night. Clay at a good game. Twenty one points on sixteen shots say Draymond filled up the stats sheet. And then on the other side. Kyrie Irving got it done. They got weapons in Boston too. Which is why we didn't put a lot of thought or effort into saying this was a potential finals preview on Saturday night as we were heading into this game. The funny part of ad is is a lot of people have been saying, you know, Celtics are down or they've had some trouble. Figuring it out in. In Brooklyn a couple of weeks ago might have even been last week two weeks ago, actually where the the fans are standing there during a free throw Channing Karis leaving after Cairo saying he wants out. And by the way, we'll get to that Anthony Davis leading the pelicans. No, he wants out of New Orleans, but we will touch on that because it could tie into some of this Boston, Celtics stuff. So a great game. Again, one fifteen one eleven the final Saturday night in what felt like a playoff game through and through almost the entire game. And and Steve Kerr Slater said this in his article Anthony Slater due to the that. You can always tell when things are going well for the warriors because Steve Kerr starts nitpicking things that nobody else will pay attention to he nitpicks little things that might affect big things later on. But certainly we're not a factor. The other day like for example in the shoot around on Boston in our during the shoot around after the shoot around Saturday morning. I was listening to some of this is at the gym on Saturday. The the the warriors soundcloud have this the Steve Kerr talk of the media. And he's saying, you know, I was a little little. Perturbed about how we played in Washington. They Washington came out gave it their best shot. They knocked down fourteen threes warriors only attempted twenty three pointers in that game figure. They played decent basketball. Wasn't all that big of a deal? Steve Kerr says no, no, no. You've got guys out there. Like fonds McKinney. You've got out Quinn cook. You've got a derricks in guys who are from the Washington DC area. He goes we have family for these guys sitting in the stands, and we're out there. Now boxing out. He said, I would've loved the blow that team out, and we could get these younger guys in and he goes, it's just unacceptable to me that we've got we've got these young guys out there and we've got their fair their family sit in the stands, and they're not watching out against the wizards. So Steve Kerr nitpicking like do that was her ninth consecutive win against a team. That's knocked to the postseason you handled your business well enough and give yourself a little bit of credit. You're still trying to figure out how to work boogie cousins correctly into these schematics. Now, I was thinking about the boogie cousins thing on Saturday night. Demarcus cousins we discussed this a little last week. And by the way, overnight Dave back from his vacation good to have you. Back. Dave we were talking about this last week. Dave that. Part of the reason that C J Anderson, and you weren't here to talk about the championship week with us part of the reason C J Anderson looks so damn good for the LA. Rams right now running back is he was sitting on his ass for a number of weeks. He says it feels like I'm a running back that has not even it my by weekend. Right. So the legs are fresh. He hasn't taken a beating the way a running back would go in seventeen weeks or sixteen weeks plus preseason into the playoffs. So now, he's feeling fresh. He's out there Roland for me. It's the same thing for DeMarcus cousins, this is a guy who has never been on a playoff run, by the way has never played a playoff game in the first eight seasons of his NBA career. So starting his season right now mid-january could do wonders for this team to not just have a big man with the abilities that they have not had at any point in this Steve Kerr run. But also that they've got a guy with fresh legs maybe to get out there. And Ben against some of these guys who have been grinded out for five six months. Yeah. Good morning, Adam and obvious. Also one thing with boogie. You get that you get that drive you want. He wanted one hundred and fifty and you put that big monster ball out there, and everybody's gonna he's got the fire. Great call there. Let's get into some of this fix the Kerr nitpicking at the at the warriors boxing out in Washington and things looked pretty damn good. I thought Saturday night look kyri Irving can get out there. He can get to the tin just about whenever he wants. When he put. I mean, he did his best that he could to put Audrey rebel on skates. And it would all skated a little bit. He did not go down the way, Marcus smart went down dive after Steph curry when he stopped on a dime, and then pulled up for shot, but Tyree Irvine man, if if Steph is the best point guard in the NBA, Harry Irving is an easy one be you know, what I mean if it's one and one d you've Kyrie Irving right up there. He looked damn good on Saturday night against the warriors pretty much getting whatever he wanted whenever he felt like it too. They've got some guys that can beat you on this team. They can they can dump it off to Horford who got what he wanted in the paint a double double for him thirteen boards. Kyrie had thirty two on Saturday night. And tennessee's. And don't forget about Jason Tatum who can shoot the rock and a very efficient twenty points on seven of fifteen from the field. He also chipped in with a few assists and five board. So Steve Kerr, I think this is a good point here. He says this after the game they've been played a lot of teams. We've had a lot of injuries. Right. You didn't see John wall against Washington. You didn't see a healthy Lakers team when you saw a mostly healthy Lakers team on Christmas day two. Lebron went down with the injury. So Steve Kerr feeling like, you know, we have these guys get challenged a little bit. You wanna play a high intensity level ball? Now they are clearly clicking. They're clearly rolling right now clicking on all cylinders. The problem is that they're susceptible the playing down to the level of their opponent. Now, I would attribute a lot of their high energy. And and the run that they've been on with getting excited that DeMarcus cousins is back. He's eager to be out there twenty three minutes for him Saturday night. But he still looking to get into rhythm. He still looking to figure out exactly where he fits into this offense. And we have not seen him have his. Biggest day yet. We also haven't seen him at his worst day yet. But he had a very efficient night the other night as well four of nine fifteen points for him. So here's Steve Kerr kind of on that note that we're looking for this team to be challenged playing on the road against potential finals team. And nobody on the warriors side is saying this all of us on the outside looking in or saying it it was nice to play with some intensity against a playoff caliber team. We.

"So those are the guys that you want or the season vets unstoppable. Rookie. You don't know. You don't they? They don't have that. If so he'd be averaging twenty five minutes, which makes this. What makes all this interesting? Patrick macaws decision to leave. He would get twenty five minutes a night with this team. Like he'd be on the court. Steve played Quinn. Cook five minutes after coming off a big and he played five minutes. Like he doesn't feel comfortable with his bench. So that's why he's gotta stagger. Acadian staff. You gotta make sure I got one of them on a quarter all time. Because remember he's a do the hockey says if he can't do that anymore with all these youngsters he doesn't know what he's gonna do the chart that Mike Brown. Used to have. And you could see it's also coordinated and you could almost see like the line the line change on it. Lines everywhere, I got an actual graph. And he's got to do that. Right. Yeah. It's like it's like the Quadra equation Steve Kerr's doing to manage these minutes. It's it's it's just all weird right now. But in the back of everybody's mind is what happened last year? They finished year losing seven out of hand. It was a disaster. Everything was a struggle. They got to got to the first game one of the playoffs against San Antonio and flip the switch. It was like, oh, they're the warriors. Are they go? That's why nobody's panicking around here. Like, the national such a big story. And they wanna talk about it. But around here, I think. Panicking fans don't know how to lose. Yeah. I think I think can new ones. It's like they lost all something's wrong. You gotta blame. Somebody like do. They lost the game. What year was? Was it the fifteen or sixteen year? We're remember would Steph went into the stands in the finals. And the guy was wearing they all had the yellow shirts on the fans and the guy step back, and he just taking pictures of didn't try to say they'd try to say. Yeah, that's the fan. That's going on all over the place right now. It's like everyone is at I'll just take pictures of this. I I I'm not a fan so panic because all amusing never Steph had the elbow. Yes. I do. I think they're freaking out a little bit. But what if the reality is they are fifty five win teams? And they're going to have to like really got this out. Well, that'd be awesome. I think it'd be. The championships. Right. That's how that's what it takes to win a championship. Plus how it normally happens? It's not normal to go sixteen in one. But here's the other thing too. I I really believe this which is I think cousins is going to be an asset to the team. But when he first came aboard, and you just kind of looked out on paper. But oh, my God five all stars in this now like no he's gonna he's gonna. They need them. But he's gonna come back, and he's not necessarily going to be that guy, and he's not necessarily going to be in the in the finishing five and housing and react to that. And he's probably going to be playing. Maybe he might. He might depends on who they play right? I don't look. Here's the problem with. Here's why thing it doesn't even matter. How good he might have averaged twenty five, but their problem is to news on the court. You don't have to guard. Right. But I'll keep man boogie on one leg with like salt in his is you gotta guard that do. So if he's sixty percent. You're going gonna have to run a pick and roll with Steph. They're gonna try to switch. You get the big man staff. And now the guard's going to be on boogie. You can't just say. All right, boogie. You'll get what you're gonna get like that. He's gotta end somehow. Right. I mean the way the display he's going to have to defend. They've seventy. More. I wanna know how they're going to do it like is it four minutes on five minutes on with him. Until obviously he's got his condition. With that second unit, but he's gonna be the anchor on that second unit. Have you wanna shoot ten times in this quarter? Go ahead. Time. And that's where they get stuff including back together. Yep. And now you can have that the second line right in the bench. Kerr's got us all figured out. Manikin? Why are you panicking? I'm not panicking at all. I think it's fine. I think this is what they do. And I don't care if they win fifty two we say this all the time the eighth seed they're going to win it that they're going to win it. I mean, there's to beat them. And and I don't think the league is is dominant. There's some interesting east teams in the east and Houston looked good last night. But I don't use good. They were down twenty. But you know, Denver in the playoffs that doesn't concern me. Go on down the line with all the teams in the west. The only team that's scary is Oklahoma City. Because that team defense. I. Westbrook is shooting. His percentages are worse than Marquel. Oats, Marco folks out the special. He's the guy. He's Rodney Dangerfield and Caddyshack. Real doing. Jeez. Lamarcus outta here. Anything this weekend? You sit around watch football, man. I was talking about that. I I wish but my daughter is still not in school. So it's teen titans baby. Oh, man. Teen titans. Go. Finally. Yeah, he's still to to. We got we decorating her room. Like, yeah. I'll probably I'll just have to record it and wait till nine o'clock with that. All right. Thanks, man. They still had a great work to Marcus is filling in on fits and today, and he hung out with this. You always talked to us on Friday. So we wanted to talk to him before he got out of here a little bit on the words. We'll reset that coming up next to give you the guest list set up the show. We'll do it all coming up next here on the sports leader. But I here is your latest traffic. From the Chilton auto body traffic.
Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr says team not concerned despite brink of playoff elimination
"Pm eastern on most espn radio stations we'll talk about james harden who was historically bad last night and you're not gonna like you're not gonna like the memories that last night evoked if you're a new york knicks fan but first let's talk about the golden state warriors this to me is not surprising i like steve kerr steve kerr me kind of embodies and i think reflects the overall ethos of of this warriors team he didn't sound at all like a guy worried about his team not getting to the nba finals for the first time since twenty fourteen in fact he says after game five he's not concerned at all with worse tina's at i feel great about where we are right now and it may sound crazy but i i feel it i know exactly what i'm seeing out there and we defended them beautifully tonight we got everything we needed to many turnovers too many reaches and if we settle down a little bit we're gonna be in really good shape boy you know what i think he's right and they did defend better last night you know the turnovers came at the absolute worst time for golden state the the sixteen in the games raymonde green was responsible for six of them they didn't get a great game from kevin durant a great shooting game they didn't get a great game from steph curry and yet they still had multiple opportunities to win and i still think if that quinn cooked three with forty five seconds to go that was wide open i still feel like if that falls golden state wins the game that's the warriors are and you could call it cockiness you can call it era guidance i think it's a i think it's kind of a quiet confidence at the same time this team is on the verge of a choke job that i think can be put in the same sentences what happened two years ago in the nba finals i mean think of where we were okay they win game three by forty one points blowout houston they've obviously stolen home mm court advantage away they get off to that swelled nothing starting game for they've got early in the fourth quarter a twelve point lead i think what eighty two to seventy foot on.
