Oscar Picks of Wesley Morris from The New York Times

"Wesley Morris is here. Sometimes we fly him out. And we just put you on a whole bunch of podcasts. And we just wind you up and you go yeah Ping Pong Pinball pinball Wesley Yeah Oscars this this weekend yes I can never get through Oscars week without talking to you for at least ten minutes on what's going on. I'm not sure what happened to the Oscars because we have all these prohibitive favorites. There's no drama at all. Everyone thinks nineteen seventeen gonNA win. Isn't that wild. Everyone thinks Phoenix is GonNa win for the joker. Okay yeah that Renee Zellweger is GonNa win for Judy. which I five saying? No no no it made money Brad Pitt for once upon a time And then Laura dern for marriage story yes and those are Kinda done y- everyone the the. They're like huge huge favorites. It doesn't even make sense to bet on them. They're such huge favorites. You'd be like betting on. I don't know the the though Oklahoma City Thunder to beat some division. Three Kinda odd you the only one. That's kind of even best director. Sam Mendes as twenty five favorite. That's what is happening. Is it just. The Internet has made this that the consensus the census of thought now nobody goes against the grain and they just kind of follow the pack. What's happening here? I don't know I think I really feel like increasingly. There are just enough people. I don't know how voters individually or feeling about not pressure to pick a certain person person but the like doing the work to really choose the thing you love the most because every year you read those blind items that variety are Hollywood reporter daily beast. I do yeah And you read these Oscar voters say things and they all have. They all seem to have individual taste rate to hear these. I voters justify why they're voting. They're voting for you. You would think anything could win but that never happens will rarely happens right so I also also believe that in this particular year. I think there's a lot of politics going on like like movie. Industry politics rang. Explain plan so I don't think that people. I think there's a number of things happening. I think people don't like parasite that much. I think they see it. I think that was that was okay. I don't know how they could think that it actually got. It's like Robert Covington right now the NBA trade deadline. It's gotten hyped up too much now. People going wait a secondly. I think it's great it's awesome you're going to see it and you you end up going and you're like yeah it's good but you're not like Oh my God you're right I'm blown away. Yeah Yeah I can't speak but some people are leaving matt a Lake Nona. Nope they're leaving. They're probably just watching it at home but like they're they're watching this movie and they're just Kinda like well okay. I and I'm rich people poor people and I think that I mean I really think that they think it's that simple and I also think good. I really liked it. I didn't think it was like the best picture picture the year I why do but you do really. I was the case in a minute. I think it's just okay. The very simple thing is it takes a story. It takes an idea that I can't believe that in a hundred and you know twenty years of movies. Nobody's ever done before nobody's ever fought to turn the class. Divide into into a game in this particular way. Yeah and by the time they get to the sect by the time the father other by the time the father gets the job. So the third the third introduction of the the glomming onto this family. I'm just I was just laughing. I was is laughing with happiness at the brilliant to this idea. He's such a great of these nine movies and most like almost all of them are perfectly made. I would say that's the one that surprised me the most in terms of how tight and smart and and surprising it was the one thing I don't like goodbye it is the ending but in talking to people about who also sort of ending is anticlimactic but it also needs to be there none. Nobody could come up with a better trending. So this is the endings. Movie needs to have this elegiac sort of tragic fantasy ending. I liked once upon a time. The most I mean and as you know I also love them. We did a podcast about that on this podcast. Back in August we wait. Let's go back though we dated Rewatch ables. That's coming this week about about it already. Yeah well we do one Oscar movie every year O- of the nine area to get out on time. That seems fair. Yeah UH-HUH I think forward and for our versus Ferrari of those nine movies. That in little women I think are the most those are going to prove to be the most re watchable bowl of those. I'm so glad you said that. I feel like those have become the underrated. I'm not sure what happened. In each case moves. I thought little women was excellent. Women Soak so good the crazy thing about this year. Is there a two stores. I just wrote a story about this for the paper and the the the maddening thing about these nine movies please. And I'll get back to the into back to what people are saying about who they are. Why nine hundred seventeen is going to win for political reasons Movie movie industry political reasons. But I just read a piece about like how. This is the first year since they expanded the field ten. Move to up to ten movies that I have liked every single one of these movies more or less except for one and I don't like joker either. Yeah I don't like never really really align this year on what we didn't like I like that I didn't. I don't like joker I didn't have fun. I thought his performance was awesome. But I've seen a lot of movies that whereas the performance was awesome. But I'd necessarily loved the movie right I don't even I don't even Joaquin. Phoenix is one of my four favourite male actors. And this does not I feel like this is the first time he is looking for a character as like we are watching him do work mark. The I think it's done before you start shooting in this movie Part of it is. He is playing a person who's changing but he's always playing people who were undergoing some sort of ecological little change wasn't he's so much more interesting in the master. Oh everything he was doing. If you're going to start there then I'm like why did you give just give Antonio Banderas the Oscar. I mean that's where you're GONNA start but I'm saying like I don't know why I took this movie for people to like. Here's his Oscar. Movie when he was so good the pastor I mean the thing that was more interesting performance interesting thing that we should talk about. Is that like he is one of those people were. He's just a person who is owed right like it's he's been he's a set of a woman quote suffered so long just give him just give it to him not that he's begging for it because because when he took this part I was like oh well you know he clearly. He clearly understands with businesses going and I would never accuse him ever of like being being interested in getting any prizes for the work. He's doing but I also feel like there is a sense that he's been nominated three other times. I think maybe maybe four do you remember how lost to the master who who when they're You're talking keep your point going on anyway. I feel like if I sat here and thought about it. I'd come my with but I'm not going to remember those thirteen Two thousand thirteen. So we have. Is that Matthew mcconaughey. Now it's not McConnell. Now he lost a Daniel Day. Lewis Link Oh well that's that's just bad luck for Joaquin Phoenix. I remember having issue with that at the time you should have.

Players most likely on the move at NBA trade deadline

"Forward so here it we're getting close to the trade deadline right Thursday three PM as the NBA trade deadline here's a dose of reality about the trade deadline I'm from our our understanding you know forget for a moment who the Sixers are interested we know they're interested in Robert Covington Bogdanovich Derrick rose handful other players with other interested in them our but the issue which has been the issue all along is what do they have to give up in exchange to make such an acquisition and the only names that anybody can come up with includes the organization or someone legs I hear Smith or Mike Scott who quite frankly nobody wants either those guys they're throw ins in a deal to complete a deal nobody wants them what is our year end Smith bringing yeah he's young but guess what he's still NBA incredibly raw hasn't matured hasn't grown hasn't refined anything skill wise so he has of no value right now he's not helping out anybody Mike Scott if my sky can hit a three he's worthless out on the court he can't play defense save his life so the only thing you really have his draft picks which you're really running out of them so when you look at the the reality of their situation right you know that nobody wants a Smith Mike Scott Tobias Harris is completely untreatable who on earth would want that contract for a guy who's hit or miss night in and night out who is completely unreliable nobody that's a contractor you try to get rid of when you eat a lot of it if things get out of control al Horford come home find a single team that's gonna want anything to do with that contract including the Sixers to be honest with MBT and Ben Simmons now I know earlier tonight our when I was that I was at home doing a little bit of prep get you know for let's talk about tonight and jotting down some bullet points you know Howard Eskin joins Joe Giulio I usually Tuesday nights and of course you know what a certain point they were talking six years and I'm listening to Howard and he would love for the Sixers to have the the guts to trade either Simmons or in beat by Thursday afternoon when it comes to that I could not disagree more we all know what they think it is it comes down to this we all know would ban is capable of and we all know if that big if becomes unlocked what is truly capable of and and the different level that he goes to what we we see how talented he is Jo Ellan beat when his mind his head is on tie and his mind is focused we all know the talent that he truly is and what he's capable of there is the incredible talents in the NBA which are so rare and hard to find right this is what you stunk those years for to get players like that do you think if you decide to trade either of them by Thursday afternoon you will get anywhere near close that value in return no you sell either of them you're getting fifty percent at best in return you're not getting the proper pieces that you think you're missing in return for one of them not even close the best I and I mean this is what I think they're going to do I I would be I I'm I I can't imagine any scenario where they decide that we tried to trade either of them by Thursday three PM what I envision possibly happening they move on from the head coach they find somebody else to try to get through to one of them to try to make it work you exhaust all options before you make a decision as drastic as trading one of those two players I mean this is the hope right here I I can't envision any scenario because the we all know Joe wells a half court player which doesn't exactly fit well as a centerpiece in today's NBA which is all about pace but having said that if it's heads on tight you get to the playoffs that's when you need to have core presence more than anything and when you have banned unless he has the exact talent around him his shortcomings will come forth in a half court game yet again so I I still I still hold out hope that the two of them can work together if the towns around the correctly if they're motivated properly if they're put in certain situations I will

"I had you know, what I legitimately want to check right now. I'm going check the off court right now since the Butler trades. So this is this is since November fourteen thousand day of the trade. And by the way to my point earlier about Toronto missing all of those threes. And when they hit them, they look awesome. When they miss them. They look bad it happened to Huston too much. Like, I was talking about Toronto being like, whatever ten of forty or whatever the hell they were last night. The rockets are eleven for thirty nine when those shot drop day, look great. And when they don't drop you have what happens last night for what it's worth, Chris when Robert Covington is on the floor. The timber wolves are allowing ninety seven points for one or possessions. That's an elite number that'd be number one in the league. Yes. It would be number one when Robert Covington is on the floor and when he's off one hundred and five. And that sense the trade for what it's worth so ten games since November fourteenth. That's incredible. Yeah. Yeah. Seriously, incredible. I mean, I think with Covington he's one of those guys Ben fault wrote about this on cleaning glass. He just does all the little things on defense. All the things that don't go noticed. I think you hit it at the beginning. You raise the collective energy of a team. Right. I saw this happened with Tony Allen or seeing now in Boston with Marcus smart young. There's these guys that their impact is so much greater than whatever box score tells you because they raised the collective energy of the team. And you look to the, you know, it's it's the same in any workplace. He looked to the right. And there's some guy. That's Boston his ass. You're either going to try to bust your ass to to get on his level and be like him or you're going to look stupid. Yeah. You know what? I mean effort is a skill. Yes. It is. And it's so contagious. It just is once one guy is busting his acid diving on the floor and everything else. Sometimes that's all it takes to get the maximum out. Instead of you. You know, listen, I'm Butler fan. But it's probably better off that he's not coming to the bench calling them. All wissies every time out. Everybody. Everybody gets motivated differently. Obviously, his his motivation didn't work out. And that does need to be mentioned, by the way, they have one without him. And he said they could not. So maybe there's a little revenge here even someone like Fred vanfleet, right? Who in Yala jet, which was state under-sized? Six foot one point guard with short arms. I looked at him entering that draft. Like, I look back at my scouting report. I haven't on my, geez. What a dummy. I was Rankin him outside the top sixty because the effort that he had is the number one thing. Fred vanfleet, always effort high basketball like you is gotten a little bit better physically where all the effort that he's always played with all his years at Wichita state are manifesting into a positive impact largely because guess what he tries every single play. That's a real skill. One other thing to mention from the rockets timber wolves was rough night for Chris Paul. We mentioned the Lowry rough night. In fact, these guys kinda mirrored each other talking about Lowry couldn't by bucket. Neither could Paul. He is one of eight from the field. He is one of seven from three. And obviously these last three games since he missed that Dallas game you've been pretty rough. I mean, he's one of eight four of eleven the game before that five of thirteen the game before that. I mean, he hasn't broken. He hasn't shot over forty percent since he has come back. Even though two of those were wins the San Antonio win in the Chicago win and the team looked good last night was a rough one because he ends up. Also having five turnovers in the game. Yeah. Chris Paul looks. Like, you got old doesn't curse right? You know?.

"Coverage begins with NBA countdown. Seven o'clock eastern. You should watch that show. Right. Timberwolves, crushing the Spurs. Thirty nine points last night check in that game during in progress. And this scary. After the game. Jeff Teague said, quote, I think the group is gelling on and off the court. I think that helps it's so funny when we talk about team chemistry because I'm Robert Covington who's been rate on the court for them defensively. But the chemistry is funny. They were having a veil ability the other day and crown towns asking questions and Robert cummington comes over and child set him. How much does rival Covington bail you out on defense kids Jimmy Butler had yelled that it would not have gone over. Well. Remember, my point is tobacco over as. Well, everybody thought in this case, it was funny. Why do you think it's working? So well, honestly, Robert Covington has become a candidate for defensive player of the year this last two and three weeks because the difference that he is made to what the wolves are doing defensively, and what's happened to the Sixers which even those playing while they're defensive slid way back Covington is right now, arguably the best perimeter defender in the league, maybe might shift from day to day. But he is making a big statement and Minnesota when they made this trade they studied this wasn't the ideal trade they wanted to make they knew they were going to be getting back star player, but they chose Covington for a reason and Covington his made a humongous difference. And I think defensively you can speak to this defensively you can have momentum momentum offensively and make shots. You can get that on defense Robert Covington. Definitely when he came. He brought a lot of Menton to them defensively as you mentioned. But to me defense is all about chemistry, and there was a seamless transition for him to that team. Now before the trade. Do you think about the Timberwolves? And you'd think that okay? This is Jimmy Butler team. He's controlling all the narratives after the trade, you think about the timber wolves. And you're thinking about okay. This is a unit that is actually working. They finally have their locker room. Back cat is playing at a level that is really matching his salary at this point. And everyone seems to be happier. They're working on both ends. But defense is a good example of how she can definitely work. I'm just going to keep saying it you have to max players. You have a coach who ever thinks is really strong. You should be contending for the playoffs. So it is nice to see this team playing a are a mirror to where they should be by the way with we mentioned with the Sixers Bill still make that Butler trae time they're just down a man because it was a bit of a two for one they still need shooting. They still need some help defensively that got a little bit tougher with Kyle Korver now going to Utah. He's no longer a meal. Interesting to see what out and brand is able to do. Here's what the jump recommends for today. Tim Bontemps our guy nowadays peon in Boston has a story on the raptors gamble to trade for co why on a one year deal? One executive told him the deal was worth it. Even quite leaves. This summer will discuss that. When the jumper return check it out during the break..

"Even if it falls ten percentage points to forty percent from through a guy who will do the dirty work who will defend teams better wings and post players. I think one of the Morris brothers Marcus Morris, primarily would be a really good fit to. Yeah. That's interesting is I think like you said most people think especially casual basketball fans, they think oh, you know, they have been Simmons dwelling beat and Jimmy Butler. There's no way they can get anyone else. But that's not the case. I mean, they're a team that had so much space last summer. You know, we we kept bringing out they had all this. Ashtrays last summer. Unfortunately, they weren't able to attract a big name. But yeah, I mean, it's still definitely possible that they could you know, this summer resigned Jimmy Butler, and then go out and add a role player to that really makes them even scarier, and you know, that's a that's not a fun thought for the twenty nine teams in the NBA that already probably worried about this big three if you put some more role players around them, they already have a pretty good supporting cast put put a couple more role players that dough, you know, their role and are really good compliments to these guys that could be really scary terrifying. This from Minnesota standpoint, my I thought we talked about this a while ago about you know, what kind of package Minnesota would get. And we said, you know, if it was draft picks and young players than it seemed like, Tom, Tom. It would have been out. It seemed like they would have rebuilt. You know, obviously towns in Wiggins, they're both yo twenty two. Twenty one years old, you know, they're young they, you know, Minnesota didn't have after winning now players. They could've went the the Houston route got four first round picks or goes, you know, the Miami deal and go after you know, Richardson and a pick. Instead, they went with Robert Covington and Dario rich and searches is still relatively young. But these guys are win now players, it seems like Tim's got his way and got win now players. That's the bulk of the deal here. It's not first round picks. It's not young is. Yes, arches young. We wrong. He he's twenty four. But Robert Covington is twenty seven years old. You know, I think tips kind of one out here and got win now players in it seems like Minnesota's now focused on you know, making the playoffs again. And I understand it after the long streak they had you wanna get back in the playoffs. But do you think this deal was the right one to make or would you? You have went with one of the other packages that were reportedly out there. I wouldn't have gone with the force. Route four first round picks seem like fools goal to me because like we talked about they were going to be heavily protected. They were pretty far in the future no-one knows if they know or Glenn Taylor are even going to be around eight years from now or haver long lasting. There's let's say it sounds really dark when you head that way. Credible. Yes. That's what I meant regardless. I don't know. Maybe I'll sound like a home or something says I'm based in Miami. But I think the Josh Richardson, the what have been the best one he is averaging twenty points, five rebounds. Multiple is a block of steel. He's shooting forty percent from three on like eight attempts per game. Like he's proving that it could be a one on one score. And he's only old forty two million dollars over the next four years ten million dollars annual average salary which is. Annual average value sorry on absurdly valuable contract for someone who's putting up twenty points a game. While being a lead defender that guy would have been in win now. And the guy who would have been good for the cops means, but I believe that I think what people are saying down here is that after there was a whole drama where they were caught on a deal that included Richardson, and the less second ask for more for Trump aches and Riley, scoffed and said and refused I think that's when Richardson was removed from the from the talks, and that was that..

"robert covington" Discussed on You're Wrong... And Here's Why

"I feel like he's been in a situation that hasn't really worked out well for him from a coaching standpoint from a playmaker standpoint around him. But that's neither here nor there. You just mentioned Sam darnold. He just made his NFL debut for the New York Jets on his first career pass. He threw a pick six. I'm sorry. I can't make it up. It's unbelievable that people trust a guy who was interception thrown at USC, especially a team like the jets that does nothing but fail when it comes to quarterbacks. But that's not what I'm arguing. We're not talking about that. We're talking about the best quarterback under twenty five. It's Jared Goff and there's no, there's nothing else that you could say. The guy put up twenty eight touchdowns last year to seven interceptions. He had over thirty eight hundred passing yards for a team that's wide receiver. Rhymed receiving core was very, very underwhelming. Sammy Watkins has been a disappointing. Since buffalo, it's, there's really there's really a hard argument for me to say guy that's played one game can can really fight against the guy that put up a season where he made the playoffs and let us seem to a division win for mariota. Like I said, we'll get to. We'll get to him. He's a guy who can do both know in the air and on the ground. The problem is he's on a team that just doesn't put anything around him. He was an unbelievable talent and Oregon chip Kelly made that kitty got him that that high draft pick with his innovative offense. They don't use him the right way. If mariota gets into a scheme where you can use both of his talents, he's going to look a lot like that guy who let it up two years ago and a lot less like the guy last year who barely made the playoffs. All right. So if he played in a more traditional offense, I think that there's reason to believe Mahomes would have challenged for the number one overall pick in the draft in two thousand seventeen. The concerns were the system. The concerns were a little bit about his attitude and stuff like that. I think all of that's been answered. The guy is blessed with unthinkable arm, strength and touch on his throws as well as strong athleticism. Mahomes is a prototypical modern day NFL quarterback. Is he confident bordering on cocky? Sure. Is that exactly what I want in my quarterback? Absolutely not only is Mahomes the best under twenty five quarterback in the NFL today. I think he's going to be considered one of the best overall quarterbacks in the NFL very, very soon. Listen, I get it body type. It's all there. We've seen guys like that before we've seen flash in the pans. We've seen a guy like Nick foles with the prototypical size, light it up for that year under chip Kelly, the two interception season. He was unreal. He was unreal, and then all of a sudden NFL defenses figure figure them out. That's what can happen with a guy like Mahomes the arm. Strength is certainly there, but these defenses don't. They, they adapt, Chris, they adapt to these types of things they can go and attack him in a different way that is going to certainly put more pressure on him. My my biggest thing is Patrick Mahomes is super talented, but you can't take that one game sample size and say that he is the best no doubt about it under twenty five QB and the NFL when there's guys under twenty five who've already gotten it done at the biggest level. It's just it's just impossible. For you to say that for sure. All right, we'll those are three segments for this week. I can't wait to hear what you guys think about the best young quarterback in the NFL you know, who are contenders in the NFC east and all of that and put again, I beg you. I beg lease weigh in on your thoughts on the Robert Covington argument. That is like, I don't say this jokingly, that argument was what this show was built on. Absolutely. It was the idea for what we're doing right now and it seems like some of you guys genuinely enjoy what we're doing. Thank you so much. Thank you for being really supporting us. And all of that please weigh in. We need to hear what you think about Robert Covington and anything else you wanna share on Phil. Then I've been Chris Horwood l. he's been Greg Crone and we'll see you back here next week..

"More respect hypothetical. Robert Covington, stinks, quote, Greg, Crone quote, we're going to talk about how the Redskins are the biggest threat to the eagles in the NFC this year. And we're going to talk about why Patrick Mahomes is the NFL's best young quarterback constituting players under twenty five. We're going to start with the one that is in the interim music. My friend red talk about me telling you why Robert Covington deserves more respect. And Robert Covington in fact, does not stink. I'm going to get mic. It's timer up. Time are going. We won't according on different platform. This week, we should be telling people, so we won't have the alarm, but I will will let it know when when time is up. And we're going to, we're going to get going, what do you say we do it right now. So like I said, only a matter of time before we got to this topic and I'm surprised it took us three weeks to get here when this was really the Genesis. For the idea of this show, we talk about it in the interim music. Let me tell you the listeners, something that is sure as death and taxes. If Robert Covington has a bad game, my pal, Greg is ninety nine point nine, five percent likely to send me a text talking about how overrated he is and just how badly Robert Covington stinks. This happens without fail. Do I ever hear when Robert Covington is six of nine for three for twenty five points? I don't, but when he is over nine three, oh, the texts they are coming and tries. I may and believe me. I have no number so that I can throw out at Greg or no advance stats. I use can deter his single-minded loathing. Of the Philadelphia seventy Sixers starting small forward. So instead of banging my head against the wall on the longer, I'm going to make this argument this plead of sanity to you the listeners so you can settle this once and for all. On the seventy Sixers team that improve twenty four games less season, finishing the seventeen eighteen season with a fifty two and thirty record. I can send that Robert Covington was no worse than the fourth most important player on the team, and there's a real case to be made that it was him and not JJ Radic. That was the third most important player on this team. Not Dario not anyone like that. Robert Covington. Now, before I let Greg talk, I'm going to tell you that my co host here, he's gonna throw a lot of shooting percentages out issue in hopes that you look no deeper than that. And you've reached the same irrational conclusion that he has that Robert Covington stinks. I ask you to look at the entire picture when waiting Robert Covington. Okay. So that's I like how I like how the shooting percentage stats who are going to think that that's the thing that I'm going to throw you and I am. Of course I'm going to bring that up because you know what I heard tons and tons and tons of hype that now now's the time. We're spreading the floor more. He's going to have open shots and Robert Covington. He's gonna shoot somewhere in the neighborhood of forty percent members. Do you remember October November of last year? Do you remember the hype that came from every single one of my Sixers friends that listens to will not be named podcast that is in love with one Robert Covington. I remember because I had to eat my words for an entire month and then like that the skies parted, a proverbial lid slammed shut onto the top of the basketball hoop and the percentage of started to go down Chris. They started to go. All the way down. And my biggest thing is that I heard he's streaky shooter. He's this. He's that. I just don't think he's anywhere near the expectations that are laid upon him a career, a career. Where is it here? A career thirty six point nine thirty five point eight from three point last season. Thirty six point nine exactly where he belongs because that is his ceiling. As far as three point shooting goes. He had plenty of more open looks because of the guys like Ben Simmons because of joylin beat opening up the floor people in teams focusing on jayjay Radic and he couldn't get the job done..
