Fresh update on "raptors" discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP Show
"The whole thing it doesn't sit right with a lot of people there 17 24 and have the worst record in the Western Conference. Some of that is not Ryan founder 12. Oh, just reporting that the general's finalizing both your deal with Raptors assistant Chris Finch to the Minnesota's new head coach. All divorces always seem to be a little bit messy. This one was really messing. Already been Simmons together. You're Freddy and Fitz Simmons on ESPN Radio, The ESPN Hap insists XM Channel a Minnesota two miles had a tough season. Right now they have the worst record in the MBA, and over the weekend they moved on from one coach Ryan Sanders, the hire another coach. Not a lot of you weren't too happy with Chris Finch be named the new head coach form a sense of the Toronto Raptors. We had Gerson rose sauce, the president symbols on our show. Last night he discussed exactly wide. This decision was made over two other candidates, including one that a lot of people really wanted to see. Have a fair shot at that job. David Vanderpool is our associate head coach. Way had him in our last head coaching process we hired him away from Portland is a result of that process. Pablo Prigioni was another internal candidate that was considered Those are guys that we've invested a lot in over the last year and a half assed. They've been part of our staff, and the reality is those guys have incredible upside and potential. And both of those guys or are going to be head coaches in this league, but they're not at that point yet. The National Basketball Coach Association, led by Rick Carlisle, the head coach of death statement about being bittersweet when one coaches fight another's hired, But they also acknowledge the deep concern and level disappoint with the hiring practice when it comes to a head coach. Being now installed as the Minnesota Timberwolves. They also about parties with the embassy look forward to sharing details in the weeks to come about working closely with the league office on a ride range of initiatives that will improve further cute coaching searches. It's been a mark J. Spirit does a great job as not just a MBA analyst or MBA inside, he knows the MBA does a great job for the undefeated on ESPN dot com. He is here, thanks to the Goodyear Hotline. Mark. What are your thoughts about this whole thing regarding the hiring process off the Minnesota to Mel's replacing their coach, and the statement by the National Basketball Coach Association being disappointed with this higher? Well, I mean, first of all, in a sense, I feel bad for French because all he was doing Was taking a knopper to nitty But it's the way that opportunity was given to him. That certainly has brought a lot of questions. When you hire somebody to be associate head coach. The assumption is that their next job is head coach, whether it's in your organization or another. Place. David Randall pool has been impressive to a lot of people. He's energy just over last summer. Interview with Chicago Bulls in New Orleans, Parish pelicans and Houston rockets. So The immediate assumption when you interview for those jobs and that when you become an associate head coach, when you get higher for that. Is that if the coaches to get fired, you'll be in that seat, so You know, Perhaps there's more to that story, but it was certainly confusing that he doesn't get the promotion. You know, it Turns out he is a black head coach in the league 95% Black. And you know, there's only seven black head coaches, so that's another part of the issue. Um, So even if you don't want David Vanderpool for That I wonder why they didn't really divulge why they don't think he's ready. But a guy who's never coached MBA is ready, You know, And I think perhaps the most disturbing thing is what the players I've been, um Coaches Association talked about which you know, the Timberwolves. Really have not discussed and that is It was no coaching search. There weren't any other candidate. You know, some people might say, Well, I'd been hollow because they have their guy anyway. And they knew who it was in 2015, But this isn't 2015. This is 2021. A lot has happened. You know, obviously there in the neighborhood where George Floyd was killed, was murdered. And So you would think that a franchise especially ran by somebody color? Would at least go through a thorough search in which to hire their next coach, especially in what we've seen over the recent marks. Um, and they didn't. And that was very, very I'll think painful to a lot of black coaches that I talked to. They're they're really hurt by that. Even general managers were disappointed in that. Because it just when you think the MBA is taking a step forward, or MBA is the model. There's a big step backward there on day then you know, there's a J. Griffin, who was the associate head coach with the Raptor. Um, he Basically been in that seat. But yet two guys underneath him get promoted over. Get her coaching sad. So how does that black head coach field? You know, Obviously, there's some other situations that have taken a hit on Adrian Griffin. But there's just so many. Layers to it that are very disappointing. If you're aspiring MBA head coach who was qualified, but just yet somehow can't get that opportunity. What's your reaction to that argument or that? Are that statement of they had that guy anyway..

"raptors" Discussed on The Free Agents
"Solve. Hitting a peak three light. I. Mean that just and Marcus all actually played better last night Indiana didn't play many minutes on the sixteen I think in the end but I think he's actually sixty minutes were better than what was saying for for the rest of the series allowed. For a veteran like that I mean you you've got to at least play out there but not him too many minutes if he's not playing well but thank God he finally hit a shot just sort of finally delivered because you know he's a legend he's just having a rough rough time not a great match up this recife aim to actually contribute. It was just a beautiful moment was a beautiful thing to see. The Raptors contributions from a lot of these guys you said, Sergia right tasks I think it's overlooked in this crazy game this thriller, the surge impact where he you know he was he caught fire from three and sort of kept the raptors alive og thought played phenomenal. He hit big shots. Of course down the stretch norm we've talked about kyle mother dog he's incredible and yeah just like the van Vliet not a great night from him looks dot com. Amazing defense hit one good shot. You know baseline jumper there see. CJ mccollum squeak CJ mccollum tweeted cows gotTA. Stop to buddy pretty sure I knew talking about Pascal. CEAC. Buddy. He just couldn't find it. Oh, man it was just leaving them short. That was a problem everyone he was going. He was pushing rather than shooting the best like hoping it would go robin shooting with any confidence in and that's the thing again, a credit to the way jalen Brown has played him logically in this series is like Has Not had any easy opportunity. So now he gets in there and he's like he kind of forget what to do. Just throwing it up there and he's like, is this going to go in and Oh my God when they leave him on the front of the Rim led this game was. The emotions I probably wasn't the best father of the year last. Not I have to say my son's fourth birthday. I'm trying to play Lego I'm trying to be a good dad, but I'm just like Oh my God where you put the ball in the. Brings out such incredible emotion. I. The thing is a funny thing is I think he tweeted this earlier this series, this Celtics team is not the Paul Pierce it celtics whether it's easy to hate those no Kimba Jalen Jason Marcus smart as well for me like these guys are like kind of are really respect these. Percent Agree with that? So. When you know in that position you like I mean, obviously you go for the raptors. Cheese is like you sort of want the celtics to do as so it's a it's an emotional rollercoaster. I tell you. Oh, my God I'd like to say this about Siaka five, nineteen over five from three. Defensively, I mean he did he he played a tournament play more minutes than lowry in this game, which is pretty mind boggling fifty four minutes. But with him at times as the GO-TO Guy I. regret anything bad ever said about Demar Derozan days as a Toronto Raptor. Play I do and I've said, you know my fair share things criticizing him some decisions Lee when he was the raptors to my God. Arkham isn't even close to A. And it's tough. It's tough and that's why you needed these contributions from the other guys. Because, he can't get anything going. Okay. Hit the shot hit one big shot. It's big every shot counts. Down, the stretch there but that was really yet besides. It almost looked like he was point shaving out there and the way he was he was missing layups all the time like he was getting open shots and the guy was still missing layups. But the good thing for the Celtics is that Jason Tatum really isn't playing in the past Games. They've done a very good job on tatum making his shots tough in Kemba Walker played fifty two minutes and scored five points that happen. That's a tough. That's pretty defense. If you're the raptors, they definitely like to switch things up in. Obviously they're making a point to eat playing a little bit smaller. It makes it tougher for those easy step in three pointers. Those easy jump shots, they threw him off a little bit and it has been big. You know he's had an up and down series. He's had a great game than a bad game then a great game than a bad game. So you know coming into game seven, you gotta be feeling a little confident that Kimble all bounce back but the raptors have done a really good job taken away the best offensive players on the Celtics. When Kemba I mean late in the game don't ask me when it was but Kemba a rough night. All night. You're right. Great job from the defense. You know there were some boxing in one of course and just completely just trying to shut him down giving them the curry treatment there in the finals but he got matched up on og tasks and he couldn't. He you went to a beautiful step that credible defender hit that and I was like oh now now. Kemba Zero Great. You know that's huge. That might be at somehow they still pull this l. but what did you think I'll let let's ask you this I know the beantown boys need us task. We gotta talk about the Camera Kimba was fouled late there in overtime. Did they swallow the whistle now and what's your opinion with the regulation relations? He's I can't keep track I. Understand I understand he listened he had a it was a rough night up until that point I like the the the the contrast in the reports from the coaches because they were playing box one on Kemba Walker, Nick, nurse airplane boxing wandering taken away A. Lot, of his stuff Brad Stevens said we're getting a lot of good looks 'cause they're playing box. Yeah. I like these guys and they're apparently they're hanging out even in the in the bubble in the hotels according to Sam Amick Brad, Stevens, and Nick nurse amicable. But then on the court, they don't like each other they don't like these box but yeah, two seconds left. What I talked about off the top. With Kemba Walker and O. Annon OBI. Non Calm shooting call those plays they're back to back two seconds left and zero point nine seconds left at the end of regulation. I like how the referee swallow whistle on the Kemba Walker play I know he was hit. He was definitely hit but he also had a chance at a layup it was he had to finish that play I think he. You don't want to finish this game on free throws to me. It sounds of stupid talking to both sides of my mouth. But at the same time, he could've finished that and he got up and he started yelling, Monty Monty Monty mccutchen who vice-president of referee development and training according to the athletic reporting who's sitting there courtside he wasn't yelling at the referees but he's yelling at the guy who runs the rest supervisor. Yeah. But at the same time. There was a sort of a makeup call on the other end because it was an. Attempt for Markelle soul inbound to og. Annan ob who touched the ball at the rim and it wasn't called a shooting foul again I liked how it wasn't decided on free throws. They're probably should've been more time put on the clock instead of zero point like one point nine really for the last ditch attempt by Pascal CEAC. But it wasn't a shooting attempt either.

"Survived the Celtics in double overtime fashion and force a game seven. Record to himself. Game seven indeed. It was always going to be this way I've said this before tasked with games like this when we get into double overtime thrillers. Their next to impossible for me to like break down because I can't remember when things. End of regulation first overtime, second overtime. There's so many big plays in this game shots. Turnovers interesting calls or non calls from the official it's a mess. It's a jumble in my head. So please what's your big takeaway? Do you are you in the same boat as me or can you? Make. A little more sense of this crazy crazy entertaining game a we are only capable of processing forty eight minutes of basketball. It's totally true when you go back and you look at what happened or you read stories on the athletic about it, you see Whoa that happen well, that happened. These these memories come flooding back that happened eight minutes ago but it just seemed like in this game of the ball game of the playoffs game of the nineteen twenty season so far it just seems like there was backbreaking moment after Brac backbreaking moment, it should have ended so many times, right? But. I'm glad that it ended the way to the players. decided it. Was Ripe in about referees at the end of the fourth quarter, and maybe there is a makeup call for a non call. Totally that could be the case I don't care I like basketball more than I like referees if you WanNa Talk. You WanNa talk about the referees go listen to the last two minutes podcast breakdown line by line. What happened in the last couple of minutes? Is there a podcast called? No because basketball is better than referees and I think in the end of the Celtics missed a great chance to end this series because. The good thing about trying to wrap your head around this game skeets is that there weren't a lot of baskets towards the end of the game right. and. So there weren't that many moments. Celtics just had such an opportunity with the raptors not hitting a bucket for the last four, twenty, four of regulation. That is bonkers seventeen points of a fourth quarter game in a closed opportunity for the Celtics I think the Celtics are really really we're gonNA going to regret missing this one I, think it's just going to give the raptors momentum going into game seven like it did after and Obi hit. That game three big shot going into game four plus you got guys going which sort of reminded me last year the guys who weren't going for the Toronto Raptors until collide drag them along they finally started going for family was terrible in the first couple of series, and then he five found his way after the raptor started winning and that's how it felt for with Markelle soul hitting his first three against the Boston Celtics this season but normally. Normally, our the big story is absolutely norm. Powell, Calorie. Got Them there but Norman. Powell. nobody likes this shot a saw Lee very upset at the end of the first overtime without isolation. But Norman Powell ten points in the second overtime I'd to look up again ten points in a five minute period bonkers. Can we call him norm now? skeets yes. That's norm with an exclamation mark for sure you've been norman for a good chunk of this bubble run really ended the postseason. Yeah. That was amazing. Twenty three points on always eleven shots and like you said, fifteen in the in the overtime periods and yeah, you're right. I tweeted it as well. Didn't love the I. Loved the Ice Oh on Kemba. I like that I mean, that's the weakest defender on the Celtics go at him. I thought norm completely just bailed them out with the. Of step back three it just like you could have got a better look for sure you didn't need a three of course, but he made up for it doesn't matter. and. I will say this game task I dunno interested to hear your thoughts as a raptors fan. It just felt like every quarter and then into every overtime, this is what it felt like. Raptors around three or four all that was a big play by the Celtics I'm freaking out. I. Think the season's over. Oh, wait a celtics the ball score here. It's really over await. Somehow they turned it over we got steal raptor shot. We're still alive. We're still alive. That's what it felt like. No, I don't like twenty times in this game now admit I'll admit early on Brad wanamaker hit some threes onsite. Gresham it hard. Hard man when he had the second three and the raptors. Looked like they were playing underwater basketball. That's what it looked like it was so slow everything was such such a difficult shot nothing was easy. Of course, Celtics Defense I mean everywhere. I did not like the chances again like all game long us like. I don't know it's like you get to four five like that. Obviously late minutes it's like Oh my God they have everything has to go right here. They have to get a stop and they did a lot of the times and then they have to score and you know big big shots from a lot of guys. Og bigshots obviously kyle huge. Just I mean, there are three huge buckets for 'em. Late in these games in the games I mean beams, I say regulation overtime in double overtime and then playoff p but. That was a way. WHO's no. Way. Off. Yes yes. Play it. I love it. He yeah he showed up norm did. Who Cares about missing that that shot at the end of the time it was a terrible play but you know a tie game and there was no time left on the clock. He kind of got what you wanted. It would have been awesome if it went in. But whatever he came in showed up just like Norman Powell does once a playoffs he's GonNa win you a game and luckily for the Raptors was in a must win game. Six. That was just that was awesome to watch. But you're exactly right to ask how do you keep track of the things that happen here's how you do it subscribe to the athletic at the athletic dot com slash notes and read all the great work from the Raptors and Celtics writers because yeah, I forgot grant Williams making to corner threes..

"He's one of the best in the League right. Paul one team can't win on the road but has that kind of success at home. How much of it's up here in? This has a lot to do. I'm telling you mental toughness and you know they're young team so I don't know if it has something to do with them hanging out on the road this is serviceable guys. Go out on the road and you know tend to get more rest at home so I don't know if that's it or is just the mental toughness part. I still think Philly has all all the tools to get out of these. They are the team to get out of the east. They are the team that can push Milwaukee they have all the pieces this is in place they have the link they have athleticism. They have the talent can they were going to see but if they play with that fire the pulse talking about on the road once the playoffs start and then you come back home and you go. Oh well we know we got here. I think Philly is that team that is going to have a whole different level of you've confidence Going into those last couple of games when they need it the most slow. They're up to fifth in the Eastern Conference standings. If they can just climb into the top four they can. At least we start the playoffs with record advantage. That would help things out. I do think the lineup changed really help them. I'm curious to see the chemistry long-term how that fits Al Horford obviously did not come into the sixers to come off the bench. He said all the right things after the game yesterday He said look. I'm a good teammate. I'll do what I'm told it's we'll have to see if that just can settle in and be comfortable so for him he is. He is someone who is interesting. Thing there so dominant at home and the best home team if they could be dominant in the playoffs at home. You only got one Rogaine and you can get the series if you go undefeated that take care of business at home regardless whatever see they are they can take care of thinking about it. They want every home game but just we'll have to win one roll game series. They can win every city. Can you imagine if they go and win game. I'm one of a series. When they're they're not having that homecourt advantage you go on the road you get that? I wanted to stay at home right now. Are you cool Paul with Philly fans booing embiid during player introductions and when he first touch the ball absolutely I mean his actions speak volumes when he sends since these sweet and been goes back and forth with Jimmy Butler.

But there's a lot for me to do. And I don't know where I really wanna start. I should start with Toronto because they one right? Well. No, I mean, I don't know if I should have you on the podcast today. I'm afraid why? Just because, you know we both agree to much. It's not even that we agree to much both like Golden State fair. That's right. But I have some things that I just find the warriors injury thing, a little bit more interesting. Yeah. I mean I, I don't know. Yeah, but we start with Toronto. Okay. Let's start with Toronto respect for Toronto because despite all this. I think it's always kind of funny, how all of this works now is that if you like one team or whatever I've never hated Toronto. I think it's pretty clear. I've not enjoyed the Kyle Lowry stuff over the years, plural. But look that guy came out game six was on fire. We're looking around just give you some perspective. I did the hoop stream show pre-game from the core. Really cool to be in that building. I did tweet out that I don't know if anybody's been oracle more than one game and has zero wins that's me. So for Mr. warrior over here have made it twice in a week for the first time ever, they lost both times, so to see the raptors come out. The greatest. There's so many different things about this raptors team that admire one that when it's new, you, you saw team that never really got that flustered..

"The architect of the NBA, who could everybody would want, and what do you page and Kevin black stone the tiebreaker here is going to go in favor of Israel Gutierrez because he had the Toronto Raptors in in the finals. Is that absolutely? It is. Yes, we haven't seen any. Videotape. You don't want to see the video. I got tapes. I. So Dan Gutierrez showdown only time for one and it's going to be USA versus Chile Sunday, all the goals, all the celebrations versus Thailand early this week. Todd was ranked thirty fourth in the world, Chile is ranked thirty nine now, they play in different confederations, whether that means one's better than the other you guys can ascertain that on your own. But the question I have for you and George, you could start us off. You think the way the game for Thailand played out will change the way US plays Sunday and react Sunday. What would that mean? I don't think it changes the way they play, they're gonna keep attacking and scoring as much as possible. But I do think the way they celebrate could be different but they won't admit to that part of it. They'll just say, hey look, we had people who scored their first goal in that first match. That's no longer the case. We've been there and we've done that. And that's why it'll be muted. I don't think that they will, and I don't think that they should this, this team has a group of leaders that are defiant. They're not passive this. Is the stuff that these women have worked their entire lives for? And if they are on the verge of the most dominant World Cup run ever, which after that first game you never really know. It could be the may should celebrate every single goal because this is what they're going to remember most for their entire believe the criticism in any way is a conversation in the back of their heads at this point right now, Israel. I do and I do, but I do think they're going to be defined about it, and they're going to celebrate at the level, whatever that feels normal and natural. Well, let's see what your celebrators level normal natural for you. Is there a good Sierras take the FaceTime? Thank you very much.

Including the fact that homosexuality and the acceptance of it is a sign that the world is ending. It makes me feel like I don't matter. It makes me feel like my friends don't matter. It makes me feel like my partner doesn't matter. It takes me right back from my teenage years in my early childhood. When I looked around and thought everybody was looking down on me that, that I'm lesser than just because this way, I was born, but I'm still gonna watch and I'm going to hope that it strengthens me because it's because of guys like that, that I have to fight every single day.

"It's still going to be remembered as the first championship that he won after San Antonio. Toronto's first championship and cetera. But just like you can't ignore the fact that only play twelve minutes in this series and Klay miss some time as well. You can't ignore the fact that these injuries are part of who this team is they've played one hundred plus games for five plus seasons. It was going to happen at some point, and this is the way it happened. Collapsing ugly right before our eyes. That's part of what this team because they weren't so good for so beacon you put it percentage on it percentage of the series was raptors percentage. It was the injuries. The warriors had well right now it certainly seems kind of overwhelming when you see Kevin Durant go down with a blown Aquiles when you see clay go down with an ACL that it has. So. Much to do with injuries. But let me remind everyone that in two thousand fifteen the Cavaliers came into the finals against these warriors without Kevin love who'd been hurting the play offs and then had kyri urban go down in the middle of those finals and had to have had to have a Belva, Dover, a join up with, with LeBron and then try those warriors. How many people look back on that and say, oh, the warriors won that heavenly right about is this one different because it's Durant? And because it's Klay Thompson, and a happened right before our eyes on the court what key moments at probably has they're probably has a lot to do with it. But I think that when you look back, five years from now, I don't think that everybody is going to be remembering that the rewards get your arms around that Toronto really I'm actually going to give you percentages is no one has sixty five percent the raptors thirty five percent for the injuries with the warriors. Here's the deal, man. The, the raptors were seventeen and five this regular season. Without Kawhi Leonard. They are really good team. They won more games than the warriors in the regular season. Even if Kevin Durant was healthy they were as good as anyone this year as far as one through ten on their roster. So you gotta give them a ton of credit. Would he page? I'm a could sixty forty because they won three games on the road. They won five consecutive road games. I mean you gotta give them a great deal of credit for that. The fact again that they look at the warriors they looked old and tired last night worn out curry didn't play very well. I mean what was left of that team? Just the remnants of it just didn't play well the rafters continued to get better. If you think about it during the series, they got stronger. So give them sixty percent forty percent because of what happened. Just pick it up storylines here finals, MBP qui-. How does winning the title change his president is future, and one more thing, and this will take some self reflection on your part, but you guys are you guys a game? Right. Not quite as part. But on your part, what does it tell you about how you viewed him before the way he was talked about through all of last year in San Antonio, the way the work quitter and not a team player was attached to George? I. Well, personally, I was very much side the whole time I always felt like look, these guys know their bodies better than we do. And if they didn't if you didn't feel comfortable in that situation in San Antonio. We should give him the benefit of the doubt in hindsight. We've now seen that with Kevin Durant here recently. Right. And I think that's where we are as people in the media who cover these sports and talk to people. We have to understand that these guys bodies there a temple man..

"She didn't give pass calcium in the deal in Pasco Ceac is kind of a safety net if Leonard leaves that's the guy you try to develop to be your next star. Oh, janet. Obese and other guys at kind of curse season. He's had a really sad off season. But another guy they have high hopes for. There's still something here if Kawai leaves. But if you leave your ceiling drops dramatically, it's not even close to the same thing for the raptors. I absolutely was worth going for quite because you don't get chances at guys like this ever like if you call up that they didn't even bother me gonna call Anthony Davis because the pelicans weren't gonna trade him even even when he was trying to get out. He wasn't kind of lined up for Toronto. If you get a chance to get a superstar like this, you take a swing so many general managers in so many sports, don't put themselves out on a limb. They don't go for the biggest risks. They try to manage to keep their job for another year and another year reason worried about his job. He's not worried about the future so much. I mean he wants to set up the future of choline stays changes everything. But if he doesn't, then they keep going, and they had a shot at a championship, and I think like they're in the NBA finals, they have a shot at a championship so five thirty eight. Has the represent a fifty five percent chance of winning the series, which I think with the prize. Everyone considering they're going up against one of the great juggernaut squads in history of the NBA and also team that seems to be getting better as a playoffs playoffs progress, even as they seem to lose bigger and bigger pieces. Right. They left the markets cousins in the first round loss, Katie for. He's still out. He's I think he's not gonna play in game one. What is going on there? I mean, you know, co is been worldly, obviously as everyone said, but the raptors would at least have to hold serve at home to win the series. The warriors Ozzy amazing. So I mean, does that surprise you favorite ones in thirty eight? Yeah, that number is a little high for me. Because I haven't at about fifty percent to be honest. If you're gonna make the argument for the raptors and I say, this knowing Golden State Warriors panic they've seen every situation, they are absolute champions, Steve Kerr said it really well they're effing giants. Right. The raptors don't expect Kevin Durant series and even despite that I think that Golden State is Golden State, and that's a that's the team. But if I'm making our argument for the raptors. I think this is the best defensive team in the playoffs. They have to defensive players of the year in your starting line-up, plus PASCAL. Ceac moon is going to be an all defense guy. Danny green who is in a slump, but is a borderline all defense guy. Kyle lowry. Excellent defensive point guard. Fred. Vanfleet searcher Baca. There's no one to attack on this team. And when you look at the warriors, the warriors have two scores right now they have clay Steph and those guys are unbelievable. But I think the raptors can take away dream on green. I think they can take away a lot of the, the other members of the Golden State Warriors. I think are going to be overmatched a lot of situations. The real question for me with Rapids, are they're gonna make shots 'cause people underrate, how good the Philadelphia, seventy Sixers were that starting lineup was in Nyland force. I think but walkie was a really good team. This raptors team Milwaukee one sixty and they tried to win every game Yannis misleading ten but they tried to win every game team this raptors team sat Kuiper quarter of the season..

"Like Conley does not going to take away from your starters, automatic buck them, but in the raptors where the tops they were amazing the favorites. I think that that would probably push them over the tax. Yeah. I think to be honest. I think they were headed them just because I had the raptors winning Calar. But my car was out of fell way more confident with that. I was a big I'm a big fan of those teams because of what they have. That's when we talked about those teams before the second round even started. My biggest thing was. The bus don't have. He he to me. He means a lot of things he means more than OJ means that around, but I like both of them for those things because it gives you the adept gives you more versatility. Because our g is not some I don't want to pretend like he's some argue monster not like that. But he can guard multiple positions. He and he can't hit. He's up three Andy do and he's had an end the playoffs before. That's all. I'm saying. I don't you know, like, I said, I don't look at Conley. As. John wall Kim will Walker acquired he's here. He's here. He's here. Reclosed? It's here too, though. I think contended team he was carrying that grizzlies team there in the second half. And he's he so she gets for all NBA but during the regular season, nobody was looking to Lowry. Like, oh, we got to get rid of. He was doing. He was an ASTA, and it was winning games. Without Kawhi meet the war reason, why I had it's not it's not I was depending on Carleen Kyle Lowry at all. I don't I don't know what he's going to raise him. He can give me twenty. He can give me zero points. Now. But the thing was I thought this point casper, the Toronto Raptors we'd be a lot better than what they are defensively. When I was somebody pulled up two hours. I think how we're gonna have some diplomas because this team is different than the previous teams in a previous playoff teams with the roles, and he was literally the second guy after like what you're saying you have Kawai then you have PASCAL. And now you have all these pieces that there is no pressure really for him. All he really has to do show up. He's still the natural. What up his shoes, I know? I don't I don't really know. What was going on it? So it wasn't a flagrant foul on. Why he got fined if you really watch the cavalry literally cetera that man here. And that means they get off of me and he got hit. How can I don't know how you can intentionally hit somebody in that part without looking at them. So he still got the raptors coming out. I think they're going to look back in kind of realized that they're still the one of the best teams in the NBA. And they got to continue what they did in the regular season. They they shouldn't be the second game. The game too. Was the game. They should have one year. I think that was kind of an excuse Buso. In a mindset, you could say maybe this series at one one for them. I know they down to one, but they got to come in this women's like, they just gonna blow them out every time. They can't they can't let it go down. Everyone decant let support in case you can't let somebody's here is start rolling. Even the ones of the much of their star is really like, you know, we can kind of maybe allow him to school hundred ten points. It's the Peru problem is that there's only one guy on his raptors team that showed up last night on Koa Pasco had twenty but his points are in transition when they put Joel and beat on pass. He hasn't been able to do anything in the half court all of his points coming transition. And of course, we talked about cow. Danny green is struggling from three this entire playoff series. Margot saw is afraid to take shots, which is crazy. He's been opened so often this series. He just won't take the shot. And I hate that he's fallen for. Joel Embiid pump fake Scott that Tommy he's got that. Tommy puff man is hard. That's awful lizards weren't they just let him shoot three..

We're in the LA office, the LA base free SPN within the company, it's known as the L A. But is that important the podcast? It's important that everyone knows that you're all in the room. Yes. We're all together. We've just watched the Lakers play the raptors on Sunday night. So the raptors moved to nine one tonight co I did not play and they still got up forty one to fourteen or was it worse was a forty six to four forty forty one to ten forty one ten thirty one points as forty two seventeen after one. It said a whole bunch of records. But we don't want those too much on this game. Because it really in the grand scheme of doesn't mean that much. But I was a matter. Stuck with the Lakers little bit later in dating. It's here you said in the grand scheme of things this game. Doesn't matter. How many games has have to be played before you decide? Something matters. Good question. Alm? How many games have to be? I would probably say. I'm gonna go with like forty five forty forty two forty five. I let's say ten ten. The Lakers played ten. Oh. I think the raptors I think that's true. I think you know, a lot about team twenty games in twenty games. Officially I would. Remember when the nets are under a kid, and Garnett and Pierce. What what was that start? It was horrible. That was passed twenty games. It was passed funny games. They very bad that also was very strange season, including. But it's not it's not it's not a uniform rule because like the Lakers, for example, could be a lot different as a teen when their makeup as a team come February. I think you know, a good amount of team ten games in. And I think a quarter of the twenty games. I think is when you have a really solid a really solid team. I also think that the twenty game thing is something that front office is kind of dude because well now we start early because trade season really begins to summer fifteenth. That is when all the guys who signed it free agency are able to be traded usually it's roughly twenty five percent of the league. And so you can't trade and before then was kind of hard to do some traits. Right. So usually about December fifteenth is usually around the twenty to twenty five game marvel now we started mid October two little actually more than that. But usually that's where the you know when trade season begins Tracy's and goes from December fifteenth to the first week of February where the trade deadline is. And that's the. Twenty game usually marple now, it's more. So that's two months, right? February mid February to mid December. Yes. Two months, I twenty games. Like, I feel like you could be in a relationship with somebody. You wouldn't even know that person for two months, you're still this very hard. Right. I don't feel like in the first week of November. We have there's anything that you can say for sure other than the warriors are really good and the raptors are really good. They're really good. Although Mr. Bontemps said to me tonight that the raptors are the team that's gonna come out of the east, and we'll be in the NBA possible. I believe I think I think this team. team let us not even that hot of the take the best team in the east. Right now, there's certain circumstances involving very long lanky forward who is missing games here and there, but if he's healthy, and they're out the the best thing you still have a coach who's never been there before. And you also have a team that's never really gotten over the hump before. And I get it demar doors is gone, and you've got like a new store there. But I don't know. I mean that the the cast around them. Yes, they are deep. They have young guys who learned last year and LeBron is not in the east. But I still until I just see I've been bitten too many times by the Toronto. Raptors there I've seen too many failures in the postseason. So I know I probably sound Canadian right now..

"Together this the toronto raptors why win let me tell you playoff this season yes they were well put together they're better put together every year maasai jira them stemmed every year now tell you what they're going to do in the playoffs stephen a smith they are going to run their offense which they haven't been doing the regular season right at lebron james that are going to make him work on the defensive end in a way they haven't in the regular season that will limit his offense toronto will overcome their emotional problems against the cavs to teach you about this about basketball you cannot make lebron james work if you are damore derosa and i don't say that disrespectfully the maud arosa can bowl he's a stud but what makes his game successful and special doesn't work against le bron that's the problem the if the mod the rose amac's was some lethal marksmen from the outside and be more problematic for lebron then what what the more brings to the table toronto raptors half is that then one offensive option then no one weapon authencity is a guy who's gain is tailored for lebron james that's the problem if the let me give you example let's say for example bradley beal had the more derozen size okay that would be more of a nightmare for lebron the damore rosa because bradley beal can shoot in the real the problem is is that the more roses pregame it's predicated on slashing and getting to the basket and he has good enough size in its lettuces them to take advantage against almost anybody his problem is when you go up against the lebron when you go up against a durant guys at a big enough to play the three.

"What i'm saying go ahead molly go wait wait till you all right so max have you changed your mind now after these last couple of games i have indeed raptors will not beat the cavs in six they will beat them in seven and i will explain what the raptors are in some trouble here there in some troubles the cavs have psychological whammy on them that's really what's going on the analytics is i mentioned yesterday our friends at second spectrum shoutout ben alamar here at analytics only date anybody else don't do that too now the whole raptors heaven eighty seven percent chance to beat the cavs in the seven game series as i mentioned a nineteen percent chance to sweep them but there is a human element here this does not get played on a computer it does get laid on a court between human beings among among people and literally toronto gets tight playing the cash go i will say that the cavs will be able to split it toronto but i believe ronna will split right back with the cats and by the time you in cleveland and by the time you get to a game seven you would think well in a game seven the raptors are going to be so tight obviously the cavs we're going to win but i'm telling you that the raptors are in fact so superior to the cavs that psychological whammy will take the cavs to a game seven but by then the raptors will have beaten cleveland at least once on the road they will have more confidence and they will beat the cavs playoff max man.

"Okay well as a counterpoint to this raptors he'll turn from you which i really do appreciate i'm glad that you're in on the rafters we're long overdue from some for some optimism from you i have an announcement to make and really it's more of an apology to the listeners because i made a mistake and i wasn't totally forthcoming last week and i need to own it because we've been so down on the raptors over the course of the year and i think you were being pretty negative about them and i just didn't i didn't wanna pile on i didn't wanna be that guy and but when we were talking about the two thousand fifteen hawks last week i think i said that the indiana pacers were this year's version of two thousand fifteen hawks and really the truth is and it's indisputable that the rafters are this year's hawks and maybe lebron is more vulnerable this year but we're talking about a team that has been praised relentlessly for chemistry for depth for playing the right way and then like every story about the raptors for the last month or six weeks has been the raptors are for real it's time to start taking this team seriously and i just saying we went through all of this with the hawks and so i hope that the story is different for the raptors because i think it would be fun to get some new blood in the in the finals.
